IN THE MARGINS: ani difranco


Such an intent stare One eye at a time Your talons like fish hooks... You are a rare bird The kind I wouldn't even mind Writing in the margins of my books... Sometimes I see myself Through the eyes of a stray dog From an alley across the street And my whole mission just seems so finite My whole saga just seems so cheap... I mean I know that now is all there is And love just makes you cry So I live for the sight of a rare bird Suddenly flying by... And I meet your stare One eye at a time Writing in the margins of my mind... Sometimes I see myself Through the eyes of a stray dog From an alley across the street... And my whole mission just seems so finite My whole saga just seems so cheap And that's when your song calls to me From way up in a tree And I look up and the whole world Is as it should be

KYGO and Conrad Sewell: FIRESTONE


I'm a flame Short of fire I'm the dark in need of light When we touch You inspire Feel the change in me tonight So take me up Take me higher There's a war not far from here We can dance In desire Or we can burn in love tonight Our hearts are like Firestones And when they strike We feel the love Sparks will fly They ignite our bones And when they strike We light up the world! Our hearts are like Firestones And when they strike We feel the love Sparks will fly They ignite our bones And when they strike We light up the world We light up the world We light up the world! Oh oh Woah Oh oh Firestone I'm from X, you're from Y Perfect strangers in the night Here we are, come together To the world we'll testify Our hearts are like Firestones And when they strike We feel the love Sparks will fly They ignite our bones And when they strike We light up the world We light up the world Oh oh Woah Oh oh...

KYGO and MIGUEL: REMIND ME TO FORGET


It never fades away, it's staying Your kiss like broken glass on my skin And all the greatest loves end in violence It's tearing up my voice, left in silence... Baby it hit so hard, I'm holding on to my chest Maybe you left your mark, reminding me to forget It doesn't matter where you are, you can keep my regret 'Cause baby I got these scars, reminding me to forget Reminding me, I got these scars, get your love Keep reminding me, ooh, to forget your love... You left your mark (my heart) You left your mark, reminding me to forget You left your mark (my heart) You left your mark (understand) You left your mark (my heart) You left your mark, reminding me to forget You left your mark (my heart) You left your mark (understand)... There's no room in war for feelings Hurt me to the core, still healing And I know you're no good for me So I try to forget the memories... 'Cause baby it hit so hard, I'm holding on to my chest Maybe you left your mark, reminding me to forget It doesn't matter where you are, you can keep my regret Baby I got these scars, reminding me to forget... You left your mark (my heart) You left your mark, reminding me to forget You left your mark (my heart) You left your mark (understand)... Remember I told you To save it, it's over And I'll be alright So hurt me as much as you like I need you to let go I got these mementos And I'll be alright... Baby it hit so hard, I'm holding on to my chest Maybe you left your mark, reminding me to forget It doesn't matter where you are, you can keep my regret Baby I got these scars, reminding me to forget You left your mark (my heart) You left your mark, reminding me to forget You left your mark (my heart) You left your mark, reminding me to forget

PJ HARVEY: the whores hustle and the hustlers whore


Speak to me of universal laws The whores hustle and the hustlers whore All around me people bleed Speak to me your song of greed... Speak to me of your inner charm Of how you'll keep me safe from harm I don't think so, I don't see Speak to me of your inner peace, oh... Little people at the amusement park City people in the dark Speak to us, send us a sign Just give us something to keep us trying... And the whores hustle and the hustlers whore Too many people out of love The whores hustle and the hustlers whore This city's ripped right to the core... Speak to me of heroin and speed Of genocide and suicide, of syphilis and greed Speak to me the language of love The language of violence, the language of the heart... This isn't the first time I've asked for money or love Heaven and earth don't ever mean enough Speak to me of heroin and speed Just give me something I can believe... The whores hustle and the hustlers whore Too many people out of love The whores hustle and the hustlers whore This city's ripped right to the core

LOGIC: 1-800-273-8245


I've been on the low I been taking my time I feel like I'm out of my mind It feel like my life ain't mine Who can relate? I've been on the low I been taking my time I feel like I'm out of my mind It feel like my life ain't mine I don't wanna be alive I don't wanna be alive I just wanna die today I just wanna die I don't wanna be alive I don't wanna be alive I just wanna die And let me tell you why All this other shit I'm talkin' 'bout they think they know it I've been praying for somebody to save me, no one's heroic And my life don’t even matter I know it, I know it, I know I'm hurting deep down but can’t show it I never had a place to call my own I never had a home Ain't nobody callin' my phone Where you been? Where you at? What's on your mind? They say every life precious but nobody care about mine I've been on the low I been taking my time I feel like I'm out of my mind It feel like my life ain't mine Who can relate? I've been on the low I been taking my time I feel like I'm out of my mind It feel like my life ain't mine I want you to be alive I want you to be alive... You don't gotta die today You don't gotta die I want you to be alive I want you to be alive... You don't gotta die Now lemme tell you why It's the very first breath When your head's been drowning underwater And it's the lightness in the air When you're there... Chest to chest with a lover It's holding on, though the road's long And seeing light in the darkest things And when you stare at your reflection Finally knowing who it is... I know that you'll thank God you did I know where you been, where you are, where you goin' I know you're the reason I believe in life What's the day without a little night? I'm just tryna shed a little light... It can be hard It can be so hard But you gotta live right now You got everything to give right now I've been on the low I been taking my time I feel like I'm out of my mind It feel like my life ain't mine Who can relate?... I've been on the low I been taking my time I feel like I'm out of my mind It feel like my life ain't mine I finally wanna be alive (finally wanna be alive) I finally wanna be alive I don't wanna die today (hey) I don't wanna die I finally wanna be alive (finally wanna be alive) I finally wanna be alive (oh) I don't wanna die (no, I don't wanna die) I don't wanna die (I just wanna live) (I just wanna live)... Pain don't hurt the same, I know The lane I travel feels alone But I'm moving 'til my legs give out And I see my tears melt in the snow But I don't wanna cry I don't wanna cry anymore I wanna feel alive I don't even wanna die anymore Oh I don’t wanna I don’t wanna I don’t even wanna die anymore Songwriters: Alessia Caracciolo / Arjun Ivatury / Khalid Robinson / Sir Robert Bryson Hall Ii 1-800-273-8255 lyrics © Warner/Chappell Music, Inc, Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC

BLUE OCEAN FLOOR: justin timberlake


Frequencies so low Heart on a string A string that only plays solos Rain made of echoes Tidal wave rushing on and on... Under the water you scream so loud but the silence surrounds you But I hear it loud and you fall in the deep and I'll always find you... If my red eyes don't see you anymore And I can't hear you through the white noise Just send your heartbeat I'll go to the blue ocean floor Where they find us no more On that blue ocean floor On that blue ocean floor On that blue ocean floor On that blue ocean floor On that blue ocean floor... Shell made out of gold Found on a beach picked up and you held so close Rain washed out it's glow Heartbeat steadily leads me down below... Under the water you scream so loud but the silence surrounds you But I hear it loud and you fall in the deep and I'll always find you... If my red eyes don't see you anymore And I can't hear you through the white noise Just send your heartbeat I'll go to the blue ocean floor Where they find us no more On that blue ocean floor On that blue ocean floor On that blue ocean floor On that blue ocean floor On that blue ocean floor... 20, 000 leagues away, catch up to you on the same day Travel at the speed of light, thinking the same thoughts at the same time Heartbeat set at steady pace, I’ll let the rhythm show me the way No one can find us here, fade out and disappear... If my red eyes don't see you anymore And I can't hear you through the white noise Just send your heartbeat I'll go to the blue ocean floor Where they find us no more On that blue ocean floor On that blue ocean floor On that blue ocean floor On that blue ocean floor On that blue ocean floor...

TIS OF THEE: ani difranco


They caught the last poor man on a poor man's vacation The cuffed him and they confiscated his stuff They dragged his black ass down to the station... And said, okay, the streets are safe now All your pretty white children can come out and see spot run And they came out of their houses And they looked around but they didn't see no one... My country 'tis of thee To take swings at each other on the talk show TV Why don't you just go ahead and turn off the sun 'cause we'll never live long enough To undo everything they've done to you Undo everything they've done to you... Above 96th street They're handin' out smallpox blankets so people don't freeze. The old dogs have got a new trick It's called criminalize the symptoms while you spread the disease... And I hold on hard to something Between my teeth when I'm sleeping I was up and my jaw aches And the earth is full of earthquakes... My country 'tis of thee To take shots at each other on prime time TV Why don't you just go ahead and turn off the sun 'cause we'll never live long enough To undo everything they've done to you Undo everything they've done to you... And I'm trying to see through the glare Yes, I'm struggling just to see what is there The one person who really knows me best, says I'm like a cat... The kind of cat that you can't pick up and throw into your lap No, the kind that doesn't mind being held only when it's her idea Yeah, the kind that feels what she decides to feel When she's good and ready to feel it... Now I am prowling through the backyard And I am hiding under the car I have gotten out of everything, I've gotten into so far I eat when I am hungry and I travel alone And just outside the glow of the house Is where I feel most at home But in the window you sometimes appear And your music is faint in my ears...
