    Adoptable Lyrics!
    saw this part of a poem in a movie and I quite liked it.
    Quote:If you do not love me,
    I shall not be loved.
    - Samuel Beckett
    set by rune
    Trust Me from The Devil's Carnival
    Quote:You're an urge that can never be cured
    Quote:You're a bad little love and I'm yours.
    the two above gives me @Adasia Mohr feels from the perspective of some dude she's charmed
    Quote:Never tasted as sweet a poison as you have
    Quote:You're a bad little love and you're mine.
    Quote:How many kisses do you need?
    One for your tummy, one for your cheek
    One for the devil inside of me.

    I was listening to 'The Full Monty' and these lyrics are a little Ben, but idk what I'd use them for:

    What I want? That's easy.
    I wanna understand
    how I got to be a loser
    when I used to be a man

    And then:

    I'm gonna jump straight up and kick a hole in the moon
    I don't know where I'm going but I know I'll get there soon
    I'm watching Miss Meadows and this line from one of the songs being played in the background made me think of quite a few characters;

    I watched 1997 version of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella tonight, and it occurred to me that, as a youngster, I never actually paid much attention to the lyrics so much as the music and the pretty scenery (those dresses were fabulous) - and now I have a ton of Garelia muse. >.>

    Ten Minutes Ago by Brandy and Paolo Montalban
    She's an angel,
    with the dust of the stars in her eyes
    We are dancing, we are flying
    and she's taking me back to the skies
    In the arms of my love I'm flying, over mountain and meadow and glen,
    And I like it so well that for all I can tell
    I may never come down again!
    I may never come down to earth again!

    Impossible by Brandy and Whitney Houston

    The world is full of zanies and fools,
    Who don't believe in sensible rules,
    And won't believe what sensible people say.
    And because these daft and dewy-eyed dopes keep dreaming up impossible hopes,
    Impossible things are happening everyday.

    Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful? by Brandy and Paolo Montalban

    Do I love you because you're beautiful?
    Or are you beautiful because I love you?
    Do I want you because you're wonderful?
    Or are you wonderful because I want you?
    Are you the sweet invention of a lover's dream,
    Or are you really as wonderful/beautiful as you seem?
    Falling In Love With Love by Bernadette Peters
    Falling in love with love is for make-believe!
    Falling in love with love playing the fool!
    Caring too much is such a juvenile fancy!
    Learning to trust is just for children in school.
    I fell in love with love one night when the moon was full,
    I was unwise with eyes unable to see!
    I feel in love with love with love-everlasting,
    but love fell out with me!

    The Sweetest Sounds by Brandy and Paolo Montalban

    The sweetest sounds I'll ever hear,
    are still stuck inside my head.
    The kindest words I'll ever know,
    are waiting to be said
    The most entrancing sight of all,
    is yet for me to see...
    and the dearest love in all the world,
    is somewhere waiting for me,
    is waiting somewhere... somewhere for me.
    Scarce, but still around! <3

    Naughty from Matilda
    Quote:Just because you find that life's not fair it
    Doesn't mean that you just have to grin and bear it
    If you always take it on the chin and wear it
    Nothing will change.

    Quote:In the slip of a bolt, there's a tiny revolt.
    The seeds of a war in the creak of a floorboard.
    A storm can begin, with the flap of a wing.
    The tiniest mite packs the mightiest sting!

    Quote:Every day, starts with the tick of a clock.
    All escapes, start with the click of a lock!
    If you're stuck in your story and want to get out
    You don't have to cry, you don't have to shout!

    Quote:Nobody but me is gonna put it right for me,
    nobody but me is gonna change my story
    sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty

    [url=]Revolting Children[/url], also from Matilda
    I personally always loved the double meaning of revolting as in what Trunchbull finds them and REVOLUTION in the lyrics of this.
    Quote:We are revolting children
    Living in revolting times
    Quote:We will become a screaming hoard!
    Quote:You didn't think you could push us too far
    But there's no going back now.
    We are R - E - V - O - L - T - I - N

    Quote:Sometimes I wonder if people don’t want freedom as much as they want meaning.
    -Zadie Smith
    Quote:If you sink too low,
    I will grow wings large enough
    to carry us both.
    - Tyler Knott Gregson
    Quote:You’ve got a universe in your eyes and I like how it burns.
    Quote:Be fierce, but kind.
    Quote:Tell me you love me. If you don’t, then lie.

    I haven't dropped adoptable lyrics in a while so here's a mess of new albums and the weird ass indie stuff Spotify thinks is up my alley. xD

    You can travel for a thousand miles
    You can spend a thousand nights alone
    You can lose your way so easily and never ever make it home

    And then there's nothing but the memory of the dream I had that you don't love me anymore
    Why don't you love me anymore?
    Fluorescent Light - Stars

    So is it just enough to know you love me, baby?
    Is it not enough to know I care about you?
    Is it strong enough a bond to carry on?
    Or is there something else that's really true?
    Why do I feel like I'm losing you?
    Losing To You - Stars

    I don't suppose you remember me
    I was the one who set you free
    We Called It Love - Stars

    Find your hope forget your home
    Heed that feeling in your bones
    History's Door - Husky

    Maybe I listen more than you think

    We said we've never let anyone in
    We said we'd only die of lonely secrets
    The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness - The National

    I was born, born to beg for you
    Born To Beg - The National

    I've been trying to see where we're going, but you're so hard to follow
    And I don't think we're getting anywhere any time soon

    And I want what I want
    And I want everything
    Empire Line - The National

    It's not like you to be uncruel
    Uncruel - House of Lions

    And we can drown all the lovers that have gone before
    Drown the Lovers - R I T U A L

    I can see good intentions but we tear them apart

    Would it let you down if we don't grow up?
    Would it make you proud if we gave up?
    Chasin' Honey - Wild Party

    Yeah, there's one thing about me that you should know
    That I can't help from speaking my mind
    Daft Pretty Boys - Bad Suns

    So I thought I could love nothing but the breeze here
    But I fell hard for what just blew in off the coast
    Million Bucks - Smallpools

    Don't wanna know my darkest lows
    My blackest pitch, murder of crows

    Never After will suffice when star-crossed lovers take their life

    Our regret tastes sweet through a soft liqueur
    We can raise our lips to the way we were

    On a good day I'm the bad news for the wrong girl with the right wounds

    And the way you smelled like flowers
    I could've stared for hours

    But maybe I'm just a fool here
    Chasing a dream that I'll never see
    And that's when you caught my eye, dear
    And smiled so dear
    Broke - Bear Attack

    I never trust my feelings
    I waited for the remedy

    I should have known better
    Nothing can be changed
    The past is still the past
    The bridge to nowhere
    I should have wrote a letter
    Should Have Known Better - Sufjan Stevens

    well fuck how I feel
    it’s a bad gauge of realness
    and I would like love where facts are in play
    Javert - Penny & Sparrow

    I couldn't breathe, I was never at ease
    I was a wrecking ball of aggravation

    Terrorized, too busy playing dead to be alive

    How long did it take you to know that you lost?
    Tyson vs. Douglas - The Killers

    I always saw you as a kind of keeper
    A mother to a child
    But your boys have grown soft
    And your girls have gone wild

    You never live,
    You never learn
    You never shine
    If you never burn
    Battle Born - The Killers

    casually switching character accounts to pretend it's not me here again
    (I just saw these lyrics on tumblr and had so many flashbacks to 2009 >.>)

    My ship went down
    In a sea of sound.
    When I woke up alone I had everything:
    A handful of moments I wished I could change
    And a tongue like a nightmare that cut like a blade.

    In a city of fools,
    I was careful and cool

    Arrogant boy,
    Love yourself so no one has to.

    Arrogant boy,
    Cause a scene like you're supposed to.
    Therapy - All Time Low

    But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
