The Lumineers – Cleopatra

I was Cleopatra, I was young and an actress
When you knelt by my mattress, and asked for my hand
But I was sad you asked it, as I laid in a black dress
With my father in a casket, I had no plans, yeah

And I left the footprints, the mud stained on the carpet
And it hardened like my heart did when you left town
But I must admit it, that I would marry you in an instant
Damn your wife, I’d be your mistress just to have you around

But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I’ll be on time

While the church discouraged, any lust that burned within me
Yes my flesh, it was my currency, but I held true
So I drive a taxi, and the traffic distracts me
From the strangers in my backseat, they remind me of you

But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I’ll be on time

And the only gifts from my Lord were a birth and a divorce
But I’ve read this script and the costume fits, so I’ll play my part

I was Cleopatra, I was taller than the rafters
But that’s all in the past now, gone with the wind
Now a nurse in white shoes leads me back to my guestroom
It’s a bed and a bathroom
And a place for the end

I won’t be late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I’ll be on time

Moon Taxi – All Day All Night (McDonald’s Commercia)


All day and all night
My eyes are open
All day and all night
I’ve been going
All day and all night
We stay up, we stay on
All day and all night, ooh yeah

Well I don’t know just where I’ve been
Same clothes on my back again
And if you see me in the morning
You’re bound to see me hanging by a thread

One more time before I go
One more night before I know
And if you see me in the evening
You’re bound to see me out of my head

All day and all night
Eyes are open
All day and all night
Keep me going
All day and all night
We stay up, we stay on
All day and all night

Whisper words into my ear
Tell me what I need to hear
But I don’t close my eyes without you
Even if I have to make it one more day

I never know when to say when
The sun is setting once again
And underneath the stars we have until the morning comes
And washes us away

Låpsley – Hurt Me + Lyrics

Can’t look at you the same way, anticipatin’ heartbreak
And I know, and I know, and I know
I’m puttin’ on a brave face to meet you in the same place
And I know, and I know, and I know
Gotta let my mind find another space
Cause I heard these scars never go away
And now I’m runnin’ out of ways to numb the pain

So if you’re gonna hurt me
Why don’t you hurt me a little bit more?
Just dig a little deeper
Push a little harder than before
And I’m counting down the seconds that we have
I can see the end in sight, at last
So if you’re gonna hurt me
Why don’t you hurt me a little bit more?

Like breathing underwater, what’s the law and order?
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know
You’re sitting in a corner, hiding ’til it’s over
And it shows, and it shows, and it shows
Buildin’ up my walls just to tear them down
Tell me that it’s love, force me to drown
Buildin’ up my walls just to tear them down
Tell me that it’s love
(And I thought you said you still loved me)

Never thought I would lose my grip
I always thought it was an adverse trip
Never thought it would hurt so much
Lost your way to another touch
And I thought you said you loved me

Mumford & Sons – Ghosts That We Knew – Lyrics

You saw my pain, washed out in the rain
And broken glass, saw the blood run from my veins
But you saw no fault, no cracks in my heart
And you knelt beside, my hope torn apart
But the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
And we’ll live a long life

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
Cause oh they gave me such a fright
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we’ll be all right

So lead me back
Turn south from that place
And close my eyes to my recent disgrace
Cause you know my call
And we’ll share my all
And our children come and they will hear me roar

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
Cause oh they gave me such a fright
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we’ll be all right

But hold me still, bury my heart on the coals
And hold me still, bury my heart next to yours

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
Cause oh they gave me such a fright
But I will hold on with all of my might
Just promise me we’ll be all right

The ghosts that we knew made us black and all blue
But we’ll live a long life
And the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
And we’ll live a long life

Mumford & Sons – After The Storm + Lyrics

And after the storm,
I run and run as the rains come
And I look up, I look up,
On my knees and out of luck,
I look up.

Night has always pushed up day
You must know life to see decay
But I won’t rot, I won’t rot
Not this mind and not this heart,
I won’t rot.

And I took you by the hand
And we stood tall,
And remembered our own land,
What we lived for.

But there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And now I cling to what I knew
I saw exactly what was true
But oh no more.
That’s why I hold,
That’s why I hold with all I have.
That’s why I hold.

I won’t die alone and be left there.
Well I guess I’ll just go home,
Oh God knows where.
Because death is just so full and man so small.
Well I’m scared of what’s behind and what’s before.

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

Mumford & Sons – Ditmas + Lyrics

And in time
As one reminds the other of the past
A life lived much too fast to hold onto
How am I losing you?

A broken house
Another dry month waiting for the rain
And I had been resisting this decay
I thought you’d do the same

But this is all I ever was
And this is all you came across those years ago
Now you go too far
Don’t tell me that I’ve changed because that’s not the truth
And now I’m losing you

Fragile sound
The world outside just watches as we crawl
Crawl towards a life of fragile lines
And wasted time

And so I cry
As I hold you for the last time in this life
This life I tried so hard to give to you
What would you have me do?

Where I used to end was where you start
You were the only one
And now I see your eyes move too fast
You were the only one

Careful hands
And wandering without that much to say
Your words are empty as the bed we made
Is there another way?
Oh love, is there another way?

And now I’m losing you

Mumford & Sons – Where Are You Now + Lyrics

We came to the end it seems you had heard
As we walked the city streets you never said a word
When we finally sat down your eyes were full of spite
I was desperate, I was weak, I could not put up a fight

But where are you now?
Where are you now?
Do you ever think of me
In the quiet, in the crowd?

You were strangely less in pain than you were cold
Triumphant in your mind of the logic that you hold
You said no one would ever know the love that we had shared
As I took my leave to go it was clear you didn’t care

And I hear of your coming and your going in the town
I hear stories of your smile, I hear stories of your frown
And the darkness can descend we can relish all the pain
But I know that’s what you love cause you know I love the same

Zac Brown Band – Bittersweet + Lyrics

Can’t tell where the sky begins
And the water ends
No clouds to hide the sun
Waves playing me
A symphony upon the sand
As I lay drifting on the ocean
With this bottle in my hand

Sat down on the boardwalk
For a little while
Your memory, my company
Something ’bout this place
Had a way to make you smile
You always loved this island breeze

The wind whistling ‘cross my bottle
Still can’t blow away the sorrow
That tomorrow you won’t be here with me
So I raise it up and toast
The day we met and won’t forget
The way you love me
The amazing way you love me

It’s bittersweet, you see
You’re not here but I can feel you
Every memory is on the tip of my tongue
Close my eyes, see your face
Hold on tight to yesterday
Praying when I wake, it was just a dream
It’s bittersweet

Doctor said there’s nothing we can do
Took my hand, said take me home
To the only place with half a chance
To take the pain away
Make me feel alive before I go

You said life is only borrowed
So let’s wash away our sorrow
That tomorrow I won’t be here with you
Go and live your life with no regrets
And don’t forget how much I love you
I love you

It’s bittersweet, you see
You’re not here but I can feel you
Every memory is on the tip of my tongue
Close my eyes, see your face
Hold on tight to yesterday
Praying when I wake, it was just a dream
It’s bittersweet

I brought you back just like you wanted
So you don’t ever have to leave
When I poured you ‘cross the southern sky
I couldn’t help but to cry
I know you finally got your wings

Bitter, bittersweet
Bittersweet, oh

The wind whistling ‘cross my bottle
Still can’t blow away the sorrow
That tomorrow you won’t be here with me
So raise it up and toast the day we met
I won’t forget the way you love me
The amazing way you love me
It’s bittersweet

Mumford & Sons – Believe + Lyrics

You may call it in this evening
But you’ve only lost the night
Present all your pretty feelings
May they comfort you tonight
And I’m climbing over something
And I’m running through these walls

I don’t even know if I believe
I don’t even know if I believe
I don’t even know if I believe
Everything you’re trying to say to me

I had the strangest feeling
Your world’s not what it seems
So tired of misconceiving
What else this could’ve been

So open up my eyes
Tell me I’m alive
This is never gonna go our way
If I’m gonna have to guess what’s on your mind

Say something, say something
Something like you love me
Less you want to move away
From the noise of this place

Well I don’t even know if I believe
I don’t even know if I believe
I don’t even know if I wanna believe
Everything you’re trying to say to me

Mumford & Sons – Monster + Lyrics

So we were up
Thowin’ dice in the dark
I saw you late, last night, come to harm
I saw you dance in the devil’s arms

The night kept coming
Really nothing I could do
Eyes with a fire, unquenched, by peace
Curse the beauty, curse the queen

So we come
To a place of no return
Yours is the face, that makes my body burn
And here is the name that our sons will learn:
Curse the beauty, curse the queen
Curse the beauty, leave me

So when you’re weak
When you are on your knees
I’ll do my best, with the time, that’s left
Sworn with your spirit, you’re fully fleshed

So fuck your dreams
And don’t you pick at our seams
I’ll turn into a monster for you if you pay me enough
None of this counts, a few dreams, plowed up
