Selected lyrics:

Love Won't Last the Afternoon by David Poe

And honey, can't you see
How you drove me from your dark room
Into hers?
This little tragedy we have rehearsed
Every morning I wake up there
Feeling worse
But it's ending soon
Love won't last the afternoon

Out of My Head by Fastball

Sometimes I feel
Like I am drunk behind the wheel
The wheel of prosperity
However it may roll

Only You by Harry Connick Jr.

Only you can make this world seem right
Only you can make the darkness bright

Killing Me Softly With His Song by Roberta Flack

I heard he sang a good song
I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him
To listen for a while
And there he was, this young boy
A stranger to my eyes

If I Told You by Idina Menzel

If I told you that I lie sometimes
If I told you that I'd run away
If I told you who I was before
Would you follow me

No Net Below by Jonatha Brooke

It's the longest goodbye
I'll feel the air, make the catch
But I won't swing back
My timing is clear
And I'll never fear
I'll swing 'til there's no net below
Yeah, I'll swing 'til there's no net below

Green Eyed Lady by Velvet Chain

Green eyed lady feels life I never see
Setting suns and lonely lovers free

From Me to You by The Beatles

If there's anything that you want
If there's anything I can do
Just call on me and I'll send it along
With love from me to you

Old Enough To Love by Ricky Nelson

Stronger than the winds that blow, brighter than the sun
Greater than the stars that glow, you're my only one
Holding you, holding you close now at last I know
Yes, I'm old enough to love

Run by Four Star Mary

If I could wake up
And see another day
If I could fake all
The lies I'd never said
How would I know you
If I had turned away
What that would show you

A Praise Chorus by Jimmy Eat World

Are you gonna live your life wonderin'
Standing in the back, lookin' around?
Are you gonna waste your time thinkin'
How you've grown up or how you missed out?

Ladder in My Tights by Amy Studt

The world is so much better when you find you don't fit
There's a ladder in your tights and
Who gives a HA! if, whoops, you ain't shiny and perfect?

Always by Anthony Rapp

Flying away
Wish I could say you would be there tomorrow and always
Just have to go
Wish I could know you would always remember me now and always

She Runs Away by Duncan Sheik

You may not see the end of it
But luckily she comes around
It isn't what she talks about
It's just the way she is

And then you know there comes a time
You need her more than anything
You may believe yours are the wounds
That only she can heal
Then everything will turn around
And she becomes so serious
What she choose to offer you
Was all that you could have

Konstantine by Something Corporate

And then you bring me home
Afraid to find out that you're alone
And I'm sleeping in your living room
But we don't have much room
To live

All Will Be Forgotten by Holly Brook

All will be forgotten
Every tear you've cried
As soon as you awaken
To what's right in front of your eyes
Standing by your side

The road is long before me now
The memories beg me to stay
But lonely is born from pride, I've found
So I'll reach out

I thought way too much about this.

David Poe

While she's licking my wounds I dare not move
Like there's still some old fidelity to prove
Or something more to ruin
Love won't last the afternoon
