Foundations

Foundations
by Kate Nash

Thursday night,
everything’s fine,
Except you’ve got that look in your eyes,
when I’m telling a story
And you find it boring you’re thinking of something to say.
You’ll go along with and then drop it
And you humiliate me, in front of our friends.

Then I’ll use that voice what you find annoyin’
And say something like
“intelligent input darlin’ why don’t you just have another beer then?”

Then you call me a bitch and everyone we’re with will be embarrassed,
and I won’t give a shit.

[Chorus:]
My fingertips are holding onto the
cracks in our foundations,
and I know that I should let go,
but I can’t.
And everytime we fight I know it’s not right,
everytime that you’re upset and I smile
I know I should forget, but I can’t.

You said I must eat so many lemons,
’cause I am so bitter.
I said “I’d rather be with your friends mate,
’cause they are much fitter”

Yes it was childish
and you got aggressive
and I must admit that I was a bit scared,
but it gives me thrills to wind you up.

[Chorus]

Your face is pasty,
’cause you’ve gone and got so wasted,
what a surprise,
don’t want to look at your face,
’cause it’s making me sick.

You’ve gone and got sick on my trainers,
I only got these yesterday.
Oh my gosh, I cannot be bothered with this.

Well I’ll leave you there till the mornin’,
and I purposely won’t turn the heating on
and dear God, I hope I’m not stuck with this one.

[Chorus]

And every time we fight I know it’s not right,
every time that you’re upset and I smile.
I know I should forget, but I can’t.

Madness

Madness
by Muse

(That girl shouldn’t be walking alone at night like that…)

I, I can’t get these memories out of my mind
And some kind of madness has started to evolve
I, I tried so hard to let you go
But some kind of madness is swallowing me whole, yeah
I have finally seen the light
And I have finally realized
What you mean
Oh oh oh
And now, I need to know is this real love
Or is it just madness keeping us afloat?
And when I look back at all the crazy fights we had
Like some kind of madness
Was taking control
Yeah
And now I have finally seen the light
And I have finally realized
What you need
Mm
And now I have finally seen the end (Finally seen the end)
And I’m not expecting you to care (Expecting you to care)
But I have finally seen the light (Finally seen the light)
I have finally realized (Realized)
I need to love
I need to love
Come to me,
Trust in your dream
Come on and rescue me
Yes I have known, I can be wrong
Maybe I’m too headstrong
Our love is
Madness

Dangerous

Dangerous

by Big Data feat Joywave

Be forewarned,

This video is pretty messed up.

Version #2

How could you know, how could you know?
That those were my eyes
Peepin’ through the floor, it’s like they know
It’s like they know I’m looking from the outside
And creeping to the door, it’s like they know

And now they coming, yeah, now they coming
Out from the shadows
To take me to the club because they know
That I shut this down, ’cause they been watching all my windows
They gathered up the wall and listening
You understand, they got a plan for us
I bet you didn’t know that I was dangerous
It must be fate, I found a place for us
I bet you didn’t know someone could love you this much

How could they know, how could they know
What I’ve been thinking?
But they’re right inside my head because they know
Because they know, what I’ve been hidin’
They’re right under my bed, they’re in control

Here they come, yeah here they come
Out of the shadows
To take me to the club because they know
That I shut this down, ’cause they been watching all my windows
They gathered up the wall and ’cause they
I’ve gotta get out of here
Sink down, into the dark
Keep on running
And I’ve gotta get out of here (keep on running)
Sink down, into the dark

You understand, they got a plan for us
I bet you didn’t know that I was dangerous
It must be fate, I found a place for us
I bet you didn’t know someone could love you this much

Nobody’s listening when we’re alone
Nobody’s listening, there’s nobody listening,
No one can hear us when we’re alone
No one can hear us, no, no one can hear us
And I’ve gotta get out of here
Sink down, into the dark
Keep on running
I’ve gotta get out of here (Keep on running)
Sink down, into the dark
You understand, they got a plan for us
I bet you didn’t know that I was dangerous
It must be fate, I found a place for us
I bet you didn’t know someone could love you this much

Used To Love You

Used To Love You

by John Legend

La la la la
Ala la la

Maybe, it’s me, maybe I bore you
No no, it’s my fault ‘coz I can’t afford you
Maybe baby, Puffy, Jay Z
Would all be better for you ‘coz all I could do is love you

Baby, when I used to love U
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
I went through the fire for you
Do anything you asked me to

But I’m tired of livin’ this lie
It’s getting harder to justify
I realized that I just don’t love you
Not like I used to

La la la la
Yeah
Ala la la
Yeah, yeah

Maybe, I should rob somebody
So we could live like Whitney and Bobby
It’s probably my fault, my bad, my loss
But you are above cost, all I could do was love you

Baby, when I used to love U
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
I went through the fire for you
Do anything you asked me to

But I’m tired of livin’ this lie
It’s getting harder to justify
I realized that I just don’t love you
Not like I used to

La la la la
Yeah
Ala la la
Yeah, yeah

Do you remember when I used to love U?
Baby, no not any more, I don’t love you
Ooh, I used to love you
And you’re gonna miss me now

Baby, when I used to love U
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
I went through the fire for you
And I’m not gonna play the fool

No, I can’t live this life and I can’t justify
And I can’t make up my life
‘Coz I don’t love you
Not like I used to do

La la la la
Not like I used to
Ala la la
Not like I used to

Oh, I used to love U
Oh, but I don’t love you
Oh, I used to love U
Oh, but I don’t love you
Oh, I used to love U
Oh, but I don’t love you
Oh, but I don’t love you
I bet you miss me now
Oh, but I don’t love you

Wading

Wading
by Jhene Aiko

Picture me rollin’ out in the open, baby
I know that you would notice
You had been hoping I wouldn’t go
Should I be waiting?
Should I be waiting for you?
Don’t keep me waiting
I will turn blue

Picture me rollin’ out in the open
With some other man I know
That you would notice
And you would hope that feelings
Wouldn’t start to grow
While I was wading
While I was wading
Wading for you
I have been wading
I will be wading till I turn blue
‘Til I turn blue
… … … … …
I am not perfect
I would never let you think
I was more than this
As good as it gets
I’ll have one regret
You’re something I cannot miss

I will be wading
I will be wading for you
I will be wading
I will be wading till I turn blue

I am not perfect
I would never let you think
I was more than this
As good as it gets
I’ll have one regret
You’re something I cannot miss

I will be wading
I will be wading
Wading for you
I will be wading
I will be wading till I turn blue
‘Til I turn blue
… … … …
And I will do it
I’ll do it
I’ll prove it
I’ve proved it
I’ve proven it, My love
Baby don’t do it, don’t do it
Don’t ruin what you went and you did,
My love

End of the World

End of the World

by The Dirty Heads

You’re searching for a home
A place to lay your head
But the siren sings a song
That shakes you from your bed

You are a ritual
You are the seven seas
You’re missing Jamaica
Back where your daddy sings
Girl you’ve been everywhere and you’ve done everything
I feel I can’t compare us to the world you’ve seen, yeah

She asked where I wanna go
I said the end of the world with you
She said I feel like I’m home
At the end of the world with you

With every wake and moan you’re calling out to me
There are parts I’ve never known
You shed your mystery
You’re Alexandria, you are the fall of Rome
As long as I’m with you then we can feel at home
Girl we’ve been everywhere and we’ve done everything
And now I can compare us to the world you’ve seen, yeah

She asked where I wanna go
I said the end of the world with you
She said I feel like I’m home
At the end of the world with you

She asked where I wanna go
I said the end of the world with you
She said I feel like I’m home
At the end of the world with you

When years have passed and I have gone
Your memory will sink with me
You showed me all that I can see
So take me away and let me sleep

She asked where I wanna go
I said the end of the world with you
She said I feel like I’m home
At the end of the world with you

She asked where I wanna go
I said the end of the world with you
She said I feel like I’m home
At the end of the world with you

Dangerous

Dangerous By Robin Thicke

  • I’m dangerous
    So dangerous
    I’m dangerous
    You better stay away
    Stay away from me
    I’m dangerous
  • I’m dangerous
    So dangerous
    Your a lone hitchhiker
    And I’m a traveling truck
    You better not get on this ride
    You might lose your luck
    I’m dangerous
  • You better heed the signs
    That’s coming across both nights
    Starlight in years
    I’m slippery and wild
    Caution and red flags
    I’m gonna cross that line
    I’m dangerous
  • So don’t you
    Don’t you say maybe
    Baby I’m crazy
    Crazy for wanting
    Wanting you badly (badly)
    Badly I’m serious
    And you’re so curious
    But I’m too dangerous
  • You better not kiss me once
    You better not fall in love
    I’m a pterodactyl
    And you’re a wondering dove
    I don’t mean to be greedy
    But it’s never enough
    I’m dangerous
  • I tell you I love you
    And I believe it’s true
    Or that I’ll do something
    So bad to you
    And you’ll say I hate you
    And you’ll be screaming in a dream
    Where no one can hear you
  • So don’t you, don’t you say
    Maybe, maybe I’m crazy
    Crazy for wanting, wanting you
    Badly, madly I’m serious
    And your so curious
    I’m too dangerous
  • You’re idealistic
    So filled with glee
    You see me as your shiny prince
    But I’m a treacherous king
    You’ll accept my olive branch
    But I’m poison ivy
  • I’m dangerous
    So dangerous
    You better stay away
    Stay away from me
    I’m dangerous
