Saturn by Sleeping at Last
You taught me the courage of stars before you left.
How light carries on endlessly, even after death.
With shortness of breath, you explained the infinite.
How rare and beautiful it is to even exist.
For Now by Kina Grannis
Sometimes I think about the ones that we’ve replaced
All the millions underneath the burnt and waste
And I get sad because of course we’ll be the same
All of history collapsing in its wake
Maybe it’s enough that I have laid here
Maybe it’s enough that I have known inside my head, and
Maybe it’s enough to know that we were here together
And that we are the ones
We are the ones
We are the ones for now
I heard that someday when they look up at the night
They’ll see nothing but a black and starless sky
And they’ll tell stories of some old and callow time
Claiming spectacles of brilliant burning lights
So maybe this is what it takes to realize
I am grateful just that I have been alive
And I’ll be happy if I look back on my life
Been a sister, been a mother, been a wife
Dust to Dust by The Civil Wars
All your actin’
Your thin disguise
All your perfectly delivered lies
They don’t fool me
You’ve been lonely, too long.
Let me in the wall, you’ve built around
And we can light a match and burn them down
And let me hold your hand and dance ’round and ’round the flames
In front of us
Dust to dust
Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol
Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough
C’mon by Panic! at the Disco and fun.
It’s getting late, and I
Cannot seem to find my way home tonight
Feels like I am falling down a rabbit hole
Faling for forever,
Wonderfully wandering alone
What would my head be by like
If not for my shoulders
Or without your smile
May it follow you forever
May it never leave you
To sleep in the stone,
May we stay lost on our way home.
We Are The Love We Give by Imaginary Future and Kina Grannis
We are not some one-way mirror
Looking out in the world we’re in
We are the love, we are the love we give
Sweet Serendipity by Lee Dewyze
Something’s watching over me
Like sweet serendipity
Neptune by Sleeping at Last
I’m only honest when it rains
An open book, with a torn out page
And my inks run out
I wanna love you but I don’t know how.
East by Sleeping at Last
I set out to rule the world
With only a paper shield and a wooden sword.
No mountain dare stand in my way,
Even the oceans tremble in my wake.
The tide is brave, but always retreats.
Even the sand, it cowers under my feet.
My kingdom towers above it all,
While I sleep safe and sound in my cardboard walls.
Now I bear little resemblance to the king I once was.
I bear little resemblance to the king I could become.
Maybe paper is paper, maybe kids will be kids-
Lord, I want to remember how to feel like I did.
In the Embers by Sleeping at Last
May we live and die
We pull apart the dark
Compete against the stars
With all of our hearts
Till our temporary brilliance turns to ash
We pull apart the darkness while we can.
