2.  The only thing (Stabbing Westward)
 
All I need Is the air you breath
All I need Is the air I breathe
All you need Is the air we breathe

There are so many things We need so desperately
And the TV preaches We can’t live without them
You tell me what is neat I’ll tell ya what I believe
If I ever were without it Then I’d be worthless

‘Cause you are everything The only thing that matters
You are everything The only thing that I need
You are everything The only thing that matters
Yes you are everything You are the air I breathe

I wonder if some day We took all their toys away
Do you think they’d find the strength to go on living?
‘Cause deep inside I know If I lost everything I owned
I’d be a king As long as you’re beside me

‘Cause you are everything The only thing that matters
Yes you are everything The only thing I need
My love means everything The only thing that matters
Yes you are everything, You are the air I breathe (X5)

I hope someday they find A place to bid online
Where all lost souls Can find themselves some meaning
I know we’ll survive All we need’s more time
As long as we’ve got love, and art, And the ocean

And we are everything The only thing that matters
We are everything There’s nothing else I need
Our love is everything The only thing that matters
Cause we are everything You are the air I breathe (till fade)
 
3.  Take my hand (Dido)

Touch my skin,and tell me what you’re thinking
Take my hand and show me where we’re going
Lie down next to me, look into my eyes and tell me,
oh tell me what you’re seeing
So sit on top of the world and tell me how you’re feeling
what you feel now is what I feel for you
Take my hand and if I’m lying to you
I’ll always be alone if I’m lying to you

See my eyes, they carry your reflection
Watch my lips and hear the words I’m telling you
Give your trust to me and look into my heart
and show me, show me what you’re doing
So sit on top of the world and tell me how you’re feeling
what you feel now is what I feel for you

Take my hand and if I’m lying to you I’ll always be alone

if I’m lying to you
Take your time, if I’m lying to you I know you’ll find that you believe me you believe me

Feel the sun on your face and tell me what you’re thinking
Catch the snow on your tongue and show me how it tastes
Take my hand and if I’m lying to you

I’ll always be alone if I’m lying to you
Take your time, if I’m lying to you I know you’ll find that you believe me you believe me
 
4.  Without you I’m nothing (Placebo)
 
Strange infatuation seems to grace the evening tide.
I’ll take it by your side.
Such imagination seems to help the feeling slide.
I’ll take it by your side.
Instant correlation sucks and breeds a pack of lies.
I’ll take it by your side.
Oversaturation curls the skin and tans the hide.
I’ll take it by your side.

tick – tock [x3] tick – tick – tick – tick – tick – tock

I’m unclean, a libertine And every time you vent your spleen,
I seem to lose the power of speech,

Your slipping slowly from my reach.
You grow me like an evergreen,
You never see the lonely me at all
I… Take the plan, spin it sideways. I… Fall.

Without you, I’m Nothing. Without you, I’m nothing.
Without you, I’m nothing.
Take the plan, spin it sideways. Without you, I’m nothing at all
 
5.  Bury me deep inside your heart (HIM)
 
Let me wake up in your arms Hear you say it’s not alright
Let me be self dead and gone So far away from life
Close my eyes Hold me tight
And bury me deep inside your heart

All I ever wanted was you, my love You…all I ever wanted is you, my love
Your’re all I ever wanted, just you

Let me never see the sun And never see your smile
Let us be so dead and so gone So far away from life
Just close my eyes Hold me tight And bury me deep inside your heart

All I ever wanted was you, my love You…

all I ever wanted is you, my love
You’re all I ever wanted, you, oh my love
You’re all I ever wanted, you, my love

That’s the way it’s always been

My heart stops beating only for you Baby
Only for your loving

All I ever wanted was you, my love You…

all I ever wanted is you, my love
You’re all I ever wanted, you, my love
You’re all I ever wanted, you, my love

6.  One line (P.J. Harvey)
 
Do you remember the first kiss? Star shooting across the sky
To come to such a place as this You never left my mind
I’m watching from the wall As in the streets we fight
This world all gone to war All I need is you tonight

And I draw a line To your heart today To heart from mine A line to keep us safe
All through the rising sun All through the circling years
You were the only one Who could have brought me here

And I draw a line To your heart today To heart from mine A line to keep us safe
And I draw a line To your heart today To heart from mine
And pray to keep us safe
Watch the stars now moving Across the sky

Keep this feeling Safe tonight
 7.  Hyper-ballad (Björk)

 we live on a mountain right at the top there’s a beautiful view from the top of the mountain
every morning i walk towards the edge and throw little things off like:
car-parts, bottles and cutlery or whatever i find lying around
it’s become a habit  a way to start the day

i go through this before you wake up so i can feel happier to be safe up here with you

it’s real early morning no-one is awake i’m back at my cliff still throwing things off
i listen to the sounds they make on their way down
i follow with my eyes ‘til they crash imagine what my body would sound like
slamming against those rocks and when it lands will my eyes be closed or open?

i’ll go through all this before you wake up so i can feel happier to be safe up here with you

 

 8.  Yellow (Coldplay)

 

Look at the stars, Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do, Yeah, they were all yellow.

 I came along, I wrote a song for you,
And all the things you do, And it was called "Yellow."

 So then I took my turn, Oh what a thing to have done,
And it was all "Yellow."

 Your skin Oh yeah, your skin and bones,
Turn into something beautiful,
You know, you know I love you so, You know I love you so.

 I swam across, I jumped across for you,
Oh what a thing to do.  Cos you were all "Yellow,"
I drew a line, I drew a line for you,
Oh what a thing to do, And it was all "Yellow."

Your skin, Oh yeah your skin and bones,
Turn into something beautiful,
And you know for you, I’d bleed myself dry for you,
I’d bleed myself dry. It’s true, look how they shine for you,

Look how they shine for you, Look how they shine for, 
Look how they shine for you (X2)  Look how they shine.

Look at the stars, Look how they shine for you,
And all the things that you do

 9.  My sweet prince (Placebo)

 Never thought you’d make me perspire.

Never thought I'd do you the same.
Never thought I'd fill with desire.
Never thought I'd feel so ashamed.

Me and the dragon can chase all the pain away.
So before I end my day, remember.. 
My sweet prince, you are the one
My sweet prince you are the one

Never thought I'd have to retire
Never thought I'd have to abstain
Never thought all this could back fire
Close up the hole in my vain

Me and my valuable friend can fix all the pain away
So before I end my day remember
My sweet prince you are the one
My sweet prince you are the one
you are the one you are the one (X2) 

Never thought I'd get any higher
Never thought you'd fuck with my brain
Never thought all this could expire
Never thought you'd go break the chain
Me and you baby, still flush all the pain away
So before I end my day remember My sweet prince
you are the one My sweet prince, you are the one (X9)
My sweet prince My sweet prince
 10.  For what it’s worth (The Cardigans)

 

One, two, three, four

Hey baby come round Keep holding me down
And I’ll be keeping you up tonight.
The four letter word got stuck in my head
The dirtiest word that I’ve ever said It’s making me feel alright.

For what it’s worth I love you And what is worse I really do
Oh what is worse I’m gonna run run run
‘Till the sweetness gets to you And what is worse I love you!

Hey please baby come back There’ll be no more loving attack
And I’ll be keeping it cool tonight.

The four letter word is out of my head
Come on around get back in my bed
Keep making me feel alright.

For what it’s worth I like you And what is worse I really do
Things have been worse And we had fun fun fun
‘Till I said I love you And what is worse I really do!

For what it’s worth I love you
And what is worse I really do. Oh
For what it’s worth I love you
And what is worse I really do. Oh
For what it’s worth I love you
And what is worse I really do….

 

11.  The rat who would be king (Matthew Good Band)

 

Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while
Once you’re in you’re pretty much fucked
When I was the rat The rat who would be king
I imagined typhoid and us alone Always us alone
And I’ve waited on the sidelines all this time
And I’ve a grenade With our names scratched on the side
But that’s love And you know that love’s not enough

Crawl from the sea Wait for some thumbs
A greatness to breed Build the mall of America
When I was rat The rat would be king
I imagined ashes and us alone Always us alone
And I’ve waited on the sidelines all this time And I’ve a grenade
With our names scratched on the side But that’s just love
And you know that love’s not enough

 

12.  The scientist (Coldplay)

 

Come up to meet you, tell you I’m sorry

You don’t know how lovely you are

I had to find you, tell you I need you Tell you I set you apart

Tell me your secrets, and ask me your questions

Oh let’s go back to the start Running in circles, coming up tails

Heads on a science apart

 

Nobody said it was easy Oh it’s such a shame for us to part

Nobody said it was easy

No one ever said that it would be this hard

Oh take me back to the start

 

I was just guessing at numbers and figures

Pulling the puzzles apart

Questions of science, science and progress

Do not speak as loud as my heart

Tell me you love me, come back and haunt me

Oh and I rush to the start

Running in circles, chasing our tails Coming back as we are

 

Nobody said it was easy Oh it’s such a shame for us to part

Nobody said it was easy No one ever said it would be so hard

I’m going back to the start, Oh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh (x4)

 

13.  A question of lust (Depeche Mode)

 

Fragile  Like a baby in your arms

Be gentle with me I’d never willingly Do you harm
Apologies Are all you seem to get from me

But just like a child you make me smile
When you care for me And you know…

It’s a question of lust It’s a question of trust
It’s a question of not letting What we’ve built up

Crumble to dust
It is all of these things and more That keep us together

Independence Is still important for us though (we realise)
It’s easy to make The stupid mistake

Of letting go (do you know what I mean)
My weaknesses You know each and every one

(it frightens me)
But I need to drink More than you seem to think
Before I’m anyone’s And you know…

It’s a question of lust It’s a question of trust
It’s a question of not letting What we’ve built up

Crumble to dust
It is all of these things and more That keep us together

Kiss me goodbye When I’m on my own

But you know that I’d Rather be home

It’s a question of lust It’s a question of trust
It’s a question of not letting

What we’ve built up Crumble to dust
It is all of these things and more That keep us together

 

14.  #1 crush (Garbage)

 

I would die for you I would die for you
I’ve been dying just to feel you by my side

To know that you’re mine

I will cry for you I will cry for you
I will wash away your pain with all my tears
And drown your fear

I will pray for you I will pray for you
I will sell my soul for something pure and true
Someone like you

See your face every place that I walk in
Hear your voice every time I am talking
You will believe in me And I will never be ignored

I will burn for you Feel pain for you
I will twist the knife and bleed my aching heart
I’ll tear it apart

I will lie for you Beg and steal for you
I will crawl on hands and knees until you see
You’re just like me

Violate all my love that I’m missing
Throw away all the pain that I’m living
You will believe in me And I can never be ignored

I would die for you I would kill for you
I will steal for you I’d do time for you
I would wait for you I’d make room for you
I’d sail ships for you To be close to you
To be a part of you ‘Cause I believe in you
I believe in you I would die for you.

 

15.  Tomorrow never knows (OLP)

 

listen to the colour of your dreams…
turn off your mind, relax and float downstream
then it’s not dying, then it’s not dying
lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void
and it is shining, it is shining
now you may see the meaning of within it is being, it is being


love is all, love is everyone
and it is knowing, andit is knowing
let ignorance and hate mingle with dead
it is believing, it is believing
oh play the game, existence to the end
of the beginning, of the beginning
of the beginning, beginning

turn off your mind, relax and float downstream
it is not dying, it is not dying
play the game, existence to the end
of the beginning, of the beginning
of the beginning, of the beginning,
lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void
of the beginning, of the beginning, of the beginning

 

16.  The hardest part (Coldplay)

 

And the hardest part
Was letting go not taking part
Was the hardest part
And the strangest thing
Was waiting for that bell to ring
It was the strangest start

I could feel it go down
Bittersweet I could taste in my mouth
Silver lining the clouds
Oh, and I,
I wish that I could work it out

And the hardest part
Was letting go not taking part
You really broke my heart
And I tried to sing
But I couldn’t think of anything
And that was the hardest part

I could feel it go down
You left the sweetest taste in my mouth
Silver lining the cloud
Oh, and I,
Oh, and I,
I wonder what it’s all about
I wonder what it’s all about

Everything I know is wrong
Everything I do it just comes undone
And everything is torn apart
Oh and that’s the hardest part
That’s the hardest part
Yeah, that’s the hardest part
That’s the hardest part

 

17.  Somebody (Depeche Mode)
 
I want somebody to share Share the rest of my life
Share my innermost thoughts Know my intimate details
Someone who’ll stand by my side And give me support
And in return She’ll get my support
She will listen to me When I want to speak
About the world we live in And life in general
Though my views may be wrong They may even be perverted
She will hear me out And won’t easily be converted
To my way of thinking
In fact she’ll often disagree But at the end of it all
She will understand me

I want somebody who cares For me passionately
With every thought and with every breath

Someone who’ll help me see things
In a different light All the things I detest I will almost like
I don’t want to be tied To anyone’s strings
I’m carefully trying to steer clear Of those things
But when I’m asleep I want somebody
Who will put their arms around me
And kiss me tenderly Though things like this Make me sick
In a case like this I’ll get away with it
 
18.  You look so fine (Garbage)
 
You look so fine I want to break your heart And give you mine You’re taking me over
It’s so insane You’ve got me tethered and chained
I hear your name And I’m falling over

I’m not like all the other girls I can’t take it like the other girls
I won’t share it like the other girls That you used to know, You look so fine

Knocked down Cried out Been down just to find out I’m through Bleeding for you
I’m open wide I want to take you home We’ll waste some time You’re the only one for me

You look so fine I’m like the desert tonight Leave her behind If you want to show me

I’m not like all the other girls I won’t take it like the other girls
I won’t fake it like the other girls That you used to know
You’re taking me over Over and over

I’m falling over Over and over
You’re taking me over Drown in me one more time
Hide inside me tonight Do what you want to do
Just pretend happy end Let me know let it show
Ending with letting go [3x] Let’s pretend, happy end [4x]
 
19.  Sing for absolution (Muse)
 
Lips are turning blue A kiss that can’t renew
I only dream of you My beautiful
Tiptoe to your room A starlight in the gloom
I only dream of you And you never knew
Sing for absolution I will be singing And falling from your grace

There’s nowhere left to hide In no one to confide
The truth burns deep inside And will never die
Lips are turning blue

A kiss that can’t renew I only dream of you My beautiful
Sing for absolution I will be singing And falling from grace
Our wrongs Remain unrectified
And our souls Won’t be exhumed
 
20.  Centrefolds (Placebo)
 
Come on Balthazaa I refuse to let you die Come on falling star I refuse to let you die
Cos it’s wrong and i’ve been waiting far too long It’s wrong I’ve been waiting far too long
For you to be…be…be…be…be mine For you to be mine Be mine For you to be mine
And it’s wrong i’ve been waiting far too long It’s wrong
I’ve been waiting far too long For you to be…be…be…be…be

All the centrefolds that you can’t afford
Have long since waved their last goodbyes

All the centrefolds that you can’t afford
You’ve long sinced faded from their eyes
So be…be mine So be…be mine
