In your house I long to be; Room by room patiently, I'll wait for you there, like a stone.I'll wait for you there, Alone. "Like A Stone" by Audioslave

I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway.I am not your carpet, I am the sky.I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning.I am not your autumn moon; I am the night. "I Am the Highway" by Audioslave

You lie like a priceless Persian rug on a rich man's floor.Well, you lie like a coon dog basking in the sunshine on my porch.Well, you lie like a penny in the parking lot at the grocery store.It just comes way too natural to you, The way you lie. "You Lie" by The Band Perry

You lie like the man with the slick back hair who sold me that Ford.Well, you lie like the pine tree in the back yard after last month's storm.Well, you lie like a penny in the parking lot at the grocery store.It just comes way too natural to you, The way you lie. "You Lie" by The Band Perry

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to playNow I need a place to hide away.Oh, I believe in yesterday. "Yesterday" by The Beatles

I guess he's an Xbox and I'm more Atari,

But the way you play your game ain't fair.

 

"Forget You!" by Cee-Lo Green

I look at the world and I notice it's turningWhile my guitar gently weepsWith every mistake we must surely be learningStill my guitar gently weeps "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by The Beatles

Friday night arrives without a suitcaseSunday morning creep in like a nunMonday's child has learned to tie his bootlaceSee how they run "Lady Madonna" by The Beatles

Remember those walls I built?Well, baby they're tumbling downAnd they didn't even put up a fightThey didn't even make a sound"Halo" by Beyonce

I found a way to let you inBut, I never really had a doubtStanding in the light of your haloI got my angel now "Halo" by Beyoncé

You'll be my soft and sweet

I'll be your strong and steady

You'll be my sunny day

I'll be your shade tree

You'll be my honeysuckle

I'll be your honey bee

 

"Honey Bee" by Blake Shelton

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heartIt goes off like a gun, brighter than the sunOh, we could be the stars, falling from the skyShining how we want, brighter than the sun "Brighter Than The Sun" by Colbie Caillat

Now and then I think of when we were togetherLike when you said you felt so happy you could die"Somebody That I Used To Know" by Gotye

My heart's a stereoIt beats for you, so listen closeHear my thoughts in every noteMake me your radioAnd turn me up when you feel lowThis melody was meant for youJust sing along to my stereo "Stereo Hearts" by Gym Class Heroes

You, your words like knivesAnd swords and weapons that you use against me"Mean" by Taylor Swift

Another turning point,A fork stuck in the roadTime grabs you by the handDirects you where to go“Good Riddance (Time of your Life)” by Green Day

Our hearts are hungry for a food that won't come

And we could make a feast from these crumbs

And we're all staring down the barrel of a gun

So if your life flashed before you, what would you wish you would've done

?

“Live Like We’re Dying” by Kris Allen

Have you seen her dressed in blue?See the sky in front of youAnd her face is like a sailSpeck of white so fair and paleHave you seen a lady fairer? "She's A Rainbow" by The Rolling Stones

She comes in colors everywhere; She combs her hairShe's like a rainbow "She's A Rainbow" by The Rolling Stones

You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch. You really are a heel. You're as cuddly as a cactus, You're as charming as an eel, Mr. Grinch. You're a bad banana with a greasy black peel“You’re a Mean one, Mr. Grinch” by Jim Carey

You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard

Calling me out when I'm wounded

"Mean" by Taylor Swift
