Yes, beautiful family and friends can make you feel so much better after a heartbreak. But you will need sometime to wallow in loneliness and select that playlist of sad sad songs.
Let me share with you my playlist called “A TEAM”. The boy’s name starts with the letter A and my name too.. and I used to think we were gonna be this team. LET THE BITTERSWEET MUMBO JUMBO BEGIN!
My recent find.. Norah Jones‘ new album called “Little Broken Hearts (2012)“. It is so meant to be and it’s been a while since I listened to her. Even though her sound now is so different from her past albums, it is still growing on me!
4 BROKEN HEARTS
People can’t be hand-made
But he keeps slaving away at a stone that’s too hard to break
A girl who’s too lost to save
So you tried to replace me. But you didn’t get far
And I tried to repay you, But I only got scarred
She’ll be breaking your fall,And I’ll be building new walls
But this time I’ll have to make sure
To add a window for you to come back
And we tried to be
faithful,But didn’t get far
Now all we’ll be left with is 4 broken hearts
I tried to erase you
But didn’t get get far… enough away from you
Because you still can break my heart
Another fave artist of mine is Sara Bareilles. Her album “Kaleidoscope Heart (2010)” also hits the spot here. Haha!
GONNA GET OVER YOU
Goodbye. Should be saying that to you by now, shouldn’t I?
Laying down a law that I live by.Well, maybe next time.
I’ve got a thick tongue.
Brimming with the words that go unsung
I simmer then I burn for a someone.. The wrong one
And I tell myself to let the story end
That my heart will rest in someone else’s hand
But my ‘Why not me?’ philosophy began
And I said
Ooh, how am I gonna get over you?
I’ll be alright. Just not tonight
But someday Oh,
I wish you’d want me to stay
Maybe. It’s a vicious little word that can slay me
Keep me where I’m hurting, you make me
Hang from your hands but no more
I won’t beg to buy a shot at your back door
If I’m aching at the thought of you, what for?
That’s not me anymore
And I’m not the girl that I intend to be
But I dare you, darlin’, just you wait and see
But this time not for you, but just for me.. I said
Say it’s coming soon.Someday without you
All I can do Is get me past the ghost of you..Wave goodbye to me
I won’t say I’m sorry. I’ll be alright
Once I find the other side of someday
KING OF ANYTHING
Keep drinking coffee, stare me down across the table
While I look outside
So many things I’d say if only I were able
But I just keep quiet and count the cars that pass by
You’ve got opinions, man. We’re all entitled to ’em
But I never asked
So let me thank you for your time
And try not to waste any more of mine
Get out of here fast
I hate to break it to you babe
But I’m not drowning
There’s no one here to save
Who cares if you disagree? You are not me
Who made you king of anything?
So, you dare tell me who to be
Who died and made you king of anything?
You sound so innocent. All full of good intent
Swear you know best
But you expect me to, Jump up onboard with you
Ride off into your delusional sunset
I’m not the one who’s lost with no direction, oh
But you’ll never see
You’re so busy making masks
With my name on it in all caps
You’ve got the talking down
Just not the listening
All my life I’ve tried to make everybody happy while I just hurt and hide
Waiting for someone to tell me it’s my turn to decide
Let me hold your crown, babe
MARVIN’S ROOM – JOJO
I’ve Been Up Three Days . . . had a lot of Redbull
This Call Is A Mistake. There’s Somethin Strong in This Water Bottle
I Hear You Gotta New Chick. . .but that’s a little Barbie Doll
I Feel So Pathetic. but You Still Haven’t Heard It All
FuckThat New Girl That You Like So Bad
She’s Not Crazy Like Me I Bet You Like That
I’m Just Sayin
You Could Do Better
Always Turned You Out Every Time We Were Together
Once you had the best boy you can’t do better
Baby I’m The Best So You Cant Do Better
GIVE YOUR HEART A BREAK – DEMI
The day I first met you
You told me you’d never fall in love
But now that I get you. I know fear is what it really was
Now here we are, so close
Yet so far, haven’t I passed the test?
When will you realize
Baby, I’m not like the rest
On Sunday, you went home alone
There were tears in your eyes
I called your cell phone, my love but you did not reply
The world is ours, if you want it
We can take it, if you just take my hand
There’s no turning back now. Baby, try to understand
When your lips are on my lips and our hearts beat as one
But you slip right out of my fingertips every time you run
Don’t wanna break your heart
Wanna give your heart a break
I know you’re scared it’s wrong
Like you might make a mistake
There’s just one life to live
And there’s no time to waste, to waste
So let me give your heart a break
Cuz you’ve been hurt before I can see it in your eyes
You try to smile it away
Some things, you can’t disguise
Don’t wanna break your heart
Baby, I can ease the ache, the ache
Maroon 5. Need I say more?
Do you mean all the things you are?
Are you pleased with the way things are?
Wear that dress to protect this scar,That only I have seen.
Do you give just to please yourelf?
Do you wish you were somewhere else?
Justified all the things you tried,said that it was all for me.
Did you know that everything she ever does is for you?
So it goes, the story of a broken heart comes true, comes true.
I am so confused by this.
I know that life is hit or miss.
Days are stung by too much sun,
I think that you may be the one.Cover yourself up in me,Shrouded in what could have been.
I will listen to your pain,if you listen to me.
THE WAY I WAS
I’ve tried and tried and tried and tried. But I’ve no concept of consequence and I’m a master of self defense.
Days get longer, life gets shorter
She rips me like no other. So oh, dripping from head to toe.
Where are you hiding?
She’s on the outside.I’m on the inside crying
Hot love, wrap yourself around me like a warm glove
The emptiness leaves me
And I feel the never need to go back
To the way I was, the way I was
And I can’t make the same mistake
If you lose my love, it was yours to take
Break down your door, take a little more
When I need you around
And I’m so terrified of leaving, it’s a new low
Try and pick me up again but let go
See how far I get without you
Desperately need more of your..
HOT CHELLE RAE
Honestly everybodys stoked I’m finally free
And honestly my phones blowing up tonight
So I’ll go out get drunk again
Make out with all your dumb friends
tag your face just to rub it in
I’ma go cause I got no
problem with saying goodbye
Is it wrong that I’m gonna be
having the time of my life
Cause deep down I know
I should cry I should scream
and get down on my knees
I should say that I need you here
But I’m gonna party tonight
Cause honestly I just don’t care
So don’t roll up when they’re playing my song
Don’t act right when you know you’re dead wrong
You’re out of line, out of line goodnight
I’m undercover, you can drop that bomb
It’s a little too late cause I’m already gone
I’m already gone
Honestly you did it to yourself
So don’t blame me
COLDPLAY’S DON’T LET IT BREAK YOUR HEART
Autumn leaves falling like memories stalling in your head
this pain you’re feeling, your way of dealing with the past
it’s complicated, he lead you on and then he let you down
Don’t let it break your heart. Don’t let it break your heart
Don’t let it tear you apart, just bruises and scars they heal
some of these guys they wanna paint a target on your head
Love you all up and leave you dying left for dead
But then somebody will play the right song and you’ll dance again
And the computer adds up the numbers and it says
if you’re so lonely why don’t you find somebody else
not complicated, it’s kind of simple it’s just one on one
We both liked the same genre of music. And cheers to his fave band “WE THE KINGS”. They have a new album called “Sunshine State of Mind” oh and they’re coming to the Philippines again on May 28, 2012. I guess I’ll see you guys there!
AUGUST IS OVER (We the Kings album)
Say a prayer
The summer nights are dead the fall is coming
We were careless hearts who got caught up in this
You were shy to the night you drove me wild
And you crashed into me
And I won’t lie I wish it lasted a lifetime
Now we wait cause August had to end
All our bags are packed
Just two broken hearts that got caught up in this
I deny that tomorrow you’ll be gone and so far from me
It’s something strange never love the same way
Won’t you stay-ay-ay
Breathe in deep and say goodbye
The saddest song I’ll ever write
For anyone, anytime
Breathe in deep
Before I say
I can feel us slip away
You’re almost gone. You’re good as gone
We can try to drown it out but it never stops breathing
We can take it all in but it never slows down
We’ve come down from that cloud
DONT’ SPEAK LIAR
Sit back And tell me why I’m so prone to this
Do you think
I’m fond of getting you and letting you down
And I’ll get mine soon
when I come backI won’t say a word
I know You’ve heard this before
Don’t speak, liar
And if the story ends here
I can’t be surprised to find
Your eyes are open wide
And that I have inspired you
There’s so much I wanna say. Something you won’t understand
I’m already gone today. Off to be a better man
But it’s true. That I’m over you
I know it took a little while
I know I cried a couple tears
Every step was like a mile
Every day a million years
But it’s true. I’m finally over you
Here’s to the nights I cared, To the night you left
I’ll pour you a drink and toast to the end
Here’s the scene of the crime left me here to die
I’m finally over you; I’m alive
When it rains it really pours. Now the sun is kicking in
You used to say I made you sick. Now go and take your medicine
Cause it’s true. That I’m over you
Cause these bitter days are only a memory
Better days are just days away
Cuts both ways cause you’re covered in Band-Aids, now
But life goes on tho! And soon I will be able to listen to love songs again! I look forward to that day of course.. When I can listen to songs like these and enjoy them.
But til then. This will always be my life song. 🙂
