London Grammar – Strong

Excuse me for a while
While I’m wide-eyed
And I’m so down, caught in the middle
I’ve excused you for a while
While I’m wide-eyed
And I’m so damn caught in the middle

And a lion, a lion roars would you not listen?
If a child, a child cries would you not forgive them?

Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I’ve never been so wrong
Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I’ve never been so wrong

Excuse me for a while,
Turn a blind eye
With a stare caught right in the middle
Have you wondered for a while
I have a feeling deep down
You’re caught in the middle?

If a lion, a lion roars would you not listen?
If a child, a child cries would you not forgive them?

Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I’ve never been so wrong
Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I’ve never been so wrong

Excuse me for a while
While I’m wide-eyed
And I’m so damn caught in the middle
Have you wondered for a while
I have a feeling deep down?
You’re caught in the middle

Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I’ve never been so wrong
Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I’ve never been so wrong

Ghostpoet – X Marks The Spot feat. Nadine Shah

[Verse 1: Ghostpoet]
Obviously, You made me see
Can’t take this life for nothing
Let me be
All alone, I left my throne
If I don’t try another way
Then I’ll never know

[Hook: Ghostpoet & Nadine Shah] x2
So I don’t care anymore
[What you say, no way]
I don’t care anymore
[Oh you do [?]]
There’s a drawer in a room of a house that’s calling your name

[Verse 2: Ghostpoet]
Used to think you were true
But I was washed up, confused
Grasping, gasping, no room for hope
Nowadays, path seems clear
But no I won’t turn around and celebrate
You always seem here

[Hook] x2

Ellie Goulding – Wish I Stayed

Why can’t we speak another language, one we all agree on?
Why and when men look outside, do they see houses,
Instead of the fields they grew from?
We are constantly uprooted from them, making us tiresome and fearful,
Can you get up right now? Endeavour to free-fall.

‘Cause you can fall if you want to, it’s just a matter of how far,
You’ve treasured your home town, but you’ve forgotten where you are.
And it will stay with you until you’re mind’s been found,
and it has been found wondering around.

With that skipping rope, the trampoline,
The crafty smoke that made us choke,
But we didn’t give up hope.
It’s the simple ways of getting paid,
The carelessness of running away,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed.

Patterns all arranged in my background,
It’s pillars and posts keeping this country on form.
Letters were all sent with no addresses so that people can’t discover.
We’re always undercover.
Why do I always draw triangles instead of words this paper so deserves?

‘Cause you see,
I don’t own my clothes but I own my mind,
And it’s not what you’ve lost,
But it’s what you find.

We found that skipping rope, the trampoline,
The crafty smoke that made us choke,
But we didn’t give up hope.
It’s the simple ways of getting paid,
The carelessness of running away,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed.

‘Cause you can fall if you want to, it’s just a matter of how far,
You’ve treasured your home town, but you’ve forgotten where you are.
And it will stay with you ’til you’re mind’s been found,
and it has been found wondering around.

With that skipping rope, the trampoline,
The crafty smoke that made us choke,
But we didn’t give up hope.
It’s the simple ways of getting paid,
The carelessness of running away,
Now, I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed.

Eddie Vedder – Better Man

https://youtu.be/8a5rWox3C1I

Waitin’, watchin’ the clock, it’s four o’clock, it’s got to stop
Tell him, take no more, she practices her speech
As he opens the door, she rolls over…
Pretends to sleep as he looks her over

She lies and says she’s in love with him, can’t find a better man…
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can’t find a better man…
Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better man
Ohh…

Talkin’ to herself, there’s no one else who needs to know…
She tells herself, oh…
Memories back when she was bold and strong
And waiting for the world to come along…
Swears she knew it, now she swears he’s gone

She lies and says she’s in love with him, can’t find a better man…
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can’t find a better man…
She lies and says she still loves him, can’t find a better man…
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can’t find a better man…
Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better man
Yeah…

She loved him, yeah… she don’t want to leave this way
She feeds him, yeah… that’s why she’ll be back again

Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better… man…
