Top 25 – Part 2

8 Dec

Second in a series of posts about my top 25 played songs on iTunes. See the first here.

7. Be Be Your Love – Rachael Yamagata

Everything’s falling, and I am included in that
Oh, how I try to be just okay
Yeah, but all I ever really wanted
Was a little piece of you

And everybody’s talking how I, can’t, can’t be your love
But I want, want, want to be your love
Want to be your love, for real

8. Better Together – Jack Johnson

There is no combination of words
I could put on the back of a postcard
And no song that I could sing,
but I can try for your heart
this is our dreams and they are made out of real things

Like a shoebox of photographs with sepia-toned loving
Love is the answer at least for most of the questions in my heart, like
Why are we here? And where do we go? And how come it’s so hard?
It’s not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving
I’ll tell you one thing, it’s so much better when we’re together

9. I Love the Rain the Most – Joe Purdy

10. Step Up – Samantha Jade

11. Stay – Lisa Loeb

You say I only hear what I want to.
You say I talk so all the time so.
And I thought what I felt was simple,
and I thought that I don’t belong,
and now that I am leaving,
now I know that I did something wrong
’cause I missed you.
Yeah yeah, I missed you.
And you say I only hear what I want to:
I don’t listen hard,
don’t pay attention to the distance that you’re running
to anyone, anywhere.
I don’t understand if you really care,
I’m only hearing negative: no, no, no.

12. Red Right Ankle – The Decemberists

This is the story of the boys who loved you
Who love you now and loved you then
And some were sweet, some were cold and snuffed you
And some just laid around in bed.

Some had crumbled you straight to your knees
Did it cruel, did it tenderly
Some had crawled their way into your heart
To rend your ventricles apart
This is the story of the boys who loved you

13. I’d Lie – Taylor Swift

He sees everything black and white
Never let nobody see him cry
I don’t let nobody see me wishing he was mine

14. Look After You – The Fray

There now, steady love, so few come and don’t go
Will you, won’t you, be the one I always know?
When I’m losing my control, the city spins around
You’re the only one who knows, you slow it down

Oh, oh, oh
Be my baby
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
I’ll look after you

Top 25 – Part 1

26 Nov

Part 1 of my top 25 songs on iTunes. These are the result of about four years of listening. I still love all of the songs on it. A lot of them are songs which were associated with certain people at one point or another, and that’s why they’ve been listened to so frequently. A few of them just make me feel good. I’m going to do this in installments, because I want to include my favorite lyrics. Here are the top six:

1. Stolen – Dashboard Confessional.

I watch you spin around in your highest heels
You are the best one, of the best ones
We all look like we feel
You have stolen my heart

2. Unsaid – The Fray

We’re both pretty sure
Neither one can tell
We seem difficult
What we got is hard as hell
A hundred thousand words could not quite explain
So I walk you to your car And we can talk it out in the rain
And we are leaving some things unsaid
And we are breathing deeper instead

3. Come On Get Higher – Matt Nathanson

I miss the sound of your voice
And I miss the rush of your skin
And I miss the still of the silence
As you breathe out and I breathe in
So come on get higher
Loosen my lips
Faith and desire
And the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

4. Crash Into Me – Dave Matthews Band

Touch your lips just so I know
In your eyes, love, it glows so
I’m bare-boned and crazy… for you.

5. Realize – Colbie Caillat

If you just realize what I just realized,
Then we’d be perfect for each other
and will never find another
Just realized what I just realized
we’d never have to wonder if
we missed out on each other now

6. A Wish – Gregory and the Hawk

And I wish to feel smaller
under your sheets.
I wish for the whole truth
every time you speak.
And I’m thinkin’ about how you care half as much for me
As I watch you arrive, smoke cigarettes, sleep.

And I guess it doesn’t matter what I say or what I seem
You stuck what I felt for you in the pocket of your jeans.
Ignoring me the morning after isn’t enough
and I swear I’m going to cry.

I’m sick of tryin’ to be tough.
