Did You Know?
“Got the morbs” was Victorian slang for a temporary melancholia — Dante
In a panic sort of reaction, she shut the door but neglected to make sure she was on the other side of it.

Adoptable Lyrics 2.0
The fact that no one has remade this thread yet is a true crime :P

Turning Page, by Sleeping at Last
I surrender who I’ve been for who you are
For nothing makes me stronger than your fragile heart

With a whisper we will tame the vicious seas
Like a feather bringing kingdoms to their knees

Your love is my turning page
Where only the sweetest words remain
Every kiss is a cursive line
Every touch is a redefining phrase

Almost Lover, by A Fine Frenzy
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

So you're gone and I'm haunted
And I bet you are just fine
Did I make it that easy to walk
Right in and out of my life?

Every Little Thing She Does is Magic, by The Police
Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met
It's a big enough umbrella
But it's always me that ends up getting wet

Ask her if she'll marry me
In some old fashioned way
But my silent fears have gripped me
Long before I reach the phone
Long before my tongue has tripped me
Must I always be alone

No Matter Where You Are by Us The Duo
I will stand by you
Even when we fall
I will be the rock, that holds you up
and lifts you high so you stand tall
I won't let you go
No one can take your place
I won't let you fall
I won't let you go
No matter where you are
No matter where you are, I'll be there
I will hold on to
Everything we've got
A quitter, a regretter, and forgetter is
Everything I'm not
We can be the generation
Who learns how to love

Unstoppable by The Script
    There's a moment
    In your bones when
    When the fire takes over
    Blood is running
    Heart is pumping
    As the battle gets closer
    Ooh, they can say what they want now
    Ooh, 'cause we'll be screaming out

    Standing on top like a champion
    Keep your silver, give me that gold
    You'll remember when I say
    We can be heroes

Gladiator by Zayde Wolf
    Let me back it up to the start of the climb
    Faced with an army of vipers and lions
    I had to keep on reaching up 'cause it was my time
    To tear down the kingdom and call out the liars

    Got a jail on my heart from the pessimists
    Got those nails in my mouth for impressionists

    Tell me what it is that you think you believe
    Caught in a cross fire. Trouble at sea
    Every single day I feel that gold underneath
    I see the locked doors but I got the key

    Have you ever shaken hands with the devil in the night?
    Let me tell ya
    I've got every reason to fight

Wolves by Sam Tinnesz
    Don't look us right in the face
    It's like starin' at a burnin' sun
    Got teeth like razor blades
    And you know that we're out for blood

The Silence by Bastille
    Tell me a piece of your history that you're proud to call your own
    Speak in words you picked up as you walked through life alone
    We used to swim in your stories and be pulled out by their tide
    Choking on the words and drowning with no air inside

    Now you've hit a wall and it's not your fault
    My dear, my dear, my dear
    Now you've hit a wall and you hit it hard
    My dear, my dear, oh dear

    It is not enough to be dumbstruck
    Can you fill this silence?
    You must have the words in that head of yours
    And oh oh, can you feel this silence
    I can't take it anymore
    Cause it is not enough to be dumbstruck

The Cave by Mumford & Sons
    It's empty in the valley of your heart
    The sun, it rises slowly as you walk
    Away from all the fears and all the faults you've left behind

    The harvest left no food for you to eat
    You cannibal, you meat-eater, you see
    But I have seen the same I know the shame in your defeat

    I will hold on hope and I won't let you choke
    On the noose around your neck
    And I'll find strength in pain
    And I will change my ways
    I'll know my name as it's called again

    So tie me to a post and block my ears
    I can see widows and orphans through my tears
    I know my call despite my faults and despite my growing fears

    So make your siren's call and sing all you want
    I will not hear what you have to say
    'Cause I need freedom now and I need to know how
    To live my life as it's meant to be

Ember - Katherine McNamara

Ashes (ashes)
Remind me (remind me)
Just who am I

I am ember
'Bout to start a wildfire (wildfire, wildfire)
I am ember
Burning down your empire (empire, empire)
Glowing brighter than the darkness inside of you
Can't escape the flame no matter what you do
I am ember
'Bout to start a wildfire (wildfire, wildfire)

You lost your grip on me
And now I blaze wild and free

Glass Slipper - Katherine McNamara

There's a little spark
There's a little light
I know it's in your heart
I see it in your eyes
Yeah, you're so young
Got your whole life ahead
But you won't get nowhere lying in your bed
And everyone around you knows
Everything you touch is gold
No telling what your future holds
You can go anywhere you wanna go

You'd go from rags to riches
If you could only see it in yourself

It's your turn to bloom
It's your time to rise
Don't let them bring you down
Don't let them stop your shine
'Cause everyone around you knows
You got something in your soul
A force that no one can control
A fairytale waiting for you to unfold, yeah

It's just a matter of time before they tell your story
You'll see your name up in lights
You'll feel the fame and glory
You've got that magic inside
Just spread your wings and fly

Chatter - Katherine McNamara

What's the point of wishing
When nobody's listening

Words only hurt when you let them matter
Don't let them matter
It's only chatter

Words that don't flatter, only make us sadder
Make your world shatter, stab you like a dagger
Leaving you in tatters
Only makes me madder

MJ's periodical lyrics dump extravaganza...

Ithaca - Tyler Lyle
In a beautiful dream you were walking
In the city by the sea
and you wanted me
like I wanted you, I wish that were true

All the lovers I have known,
Most for fun and some for show
They were only just a place to hold
The space I keep for you

But I do not tell the world my dreams
They are alone for me to keep

Just waiting for a gentle breeze
To cast these sails to shore

Oh Penelope, she ain't waiting on me no more
I sailed the seven seas

Champion - Fall Out Boy
I got nothing but dreams inside
I got nothing but dreams

I'm just young enough to still believe, still believe
But young enough not to know what to believe in

If I can live through this
I can do anything

Stay Frosty Royal Milk Tea - Fall Out Boy
The only thing that's ever stopping me is me

Church - Fall Out Boy
Oh, the things that you do in the name of what you love
You are doomed but just enough

Bittersweet - ARCHIS
I could tell you lies that I know you wanna hear
But the words would only build a wall
Gonna wash my hands till the river runs clear
As the years go by, we rise and fall

Up & Beyond - Wildcat! Wildcat!
Take a look in the mirror
Son you say you're not what you wanted to be

Knots - Speak Low If You Speak Love
You're too far, and I'm far too jealous

History repeats itself, just like an old friend
Who tells the same stories since we were kids
And I purposely chase the hearts I know I'll never win
But I've been down this road before, don't wanna go back again

Trouble I'm In - Twinbed
So I'm giving in
To the trouble I'm in

You are, you are, my favorite medicine
You are, you are, you're where the edge began
You are, you are, just one last time again
You are, you are, you are the trouble I'm in
You are the trouble I'm in

Hello Hello - Fickle Friends
I'm in a lie
That I told last night
You're a problem
But you're mine

Hard To Be Myself - Fickle Friends
I'm a prisoner to this mood
There's an explanation and it's good
I can't change my attitude

I'm a constant state of war
Why am I afraid of being sure
So fill me up, I'm insecure

Be With You Always - Mighty Oaks
I remember how we talked
Like the world was something we forgot

Give me that love
Give me that soul
Give me your fire and I'll give you my all

For the rest of my days
I won't let you down
Put your world on my shoulders
I'll be with you always
I won't let you down
And I won't let go

Patron Saint - Regina Spektor
She'll break her own heart, and you know
That she'll break your heart, too
So darling, let go of her hand

Horns by Bryce Fox
In her heart there's a hole
There's a black mark on her soul
In her hands is my heart
And she won't let go 'till it's scarred
Ha! Tried to breathe but I can't
'Cause the air she feeds me is damned
Got a touch like a thorn
'Cause the girl she's hiding horns

She got blood cold as ice
And a heart made of stone
But she keeps me alive
She's the beast in my bones
She gets everything she wants
When she gets me alone
Like it's nothin'
She got two little horns
And they get me a little bit

She's the beast in my bones
She gets everything she wants
When she gets me alone

She's the fire in the sin
And I burn breathin' her in
Now it's love suicide
And I sell my soul for the high
Truth be told I don't mind
'Cause her hand's my paradise
She can crush every hope
Got her heels stompin' down my throat

She got horns like a devil
Pointed at me and there's nowhere to run
From the fire she breathes

It's Throwback... Sunday, apparently :P

Bad Day — Daniel Powter
Quote:Where is the moment when we needed the most?
You kick up the leaves, and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue sky's faded to gray
They tell me your passion's gone away
And I don't need no carrying on

Stand in the line just to hit a new low
You're faking a smile with the coffee to go
You tell me your life's been way off line
You're falling to pieces every time
And I don't need no carrying on

A Thousand Miles — Vanessa Carltin
Quote:If I could fall into the sky
Do you think time would pass me by?
'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you tonight

It's always times like these when I think of you
And I wonder if you ever think of me
'Cause everything's so wrong and I don't belong
Living in your precious memories

Unwritten — Natasha Bedingfield
Quote:I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines
We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way

Superheroes by The Script
She's got lions in her heart
A fire in her soul he's a got a beast
In his belly that's so hard to control
'Cause they've taken too much hits, taking blow by blow
Now light a match, stand back, watch them explode

Blame by Bastille
Fall upon your knees saying
"This is my body and soul here"
Fall and begging, pleading
"You’ve got the power and control"
Don’t pin it all on me

I can hear your pulse racing from here
Sitting next to this gun beats your heart in your mouth

Don't blame, blame, blame (I got you, I got you)

Daniel in the Den by Bastille
And you thought the lions were bad
Well they tried to kill my brothers
And for every king that died
Oh they would crown another
But it's harder than you think
Telling dreams from one another

And you thought the lions were bad
Well they tried to kill my brothers
And felled in the night
By the ones you think you love
They will come for you
Earthbound - The Accidentals
I write to stay awake
Light dies quicker in the wintertime
Wolves line the city streets
All that’s left is a tired crime

I’m a switchblade renegade

To the core, I’m a carnivore
I will never be earthbound

My thoughts break like falling glass
Shatter when I try to let them out
Color cracks, I can’t take it back
I wish I’d never opened my mouth

White Feathers, Strange Sights - Whitley
There are stranger ways to fall from grace
And harder ways to see your face
I will not be what fear makes me;
Love will set me free

I got no more time to hear what you think about me
Because all your words are so cold, so callous, so clean

And you could be my enemy
And you could be my judge
If you could start remembering all the time that you used up
And you could be my remedy
If you could show me love
If I could stop remembering all the time that you used up

I got no more time to hear who you think we should blame
Because all your words are so vile, so vicious, so vain

Simplify - Young The Giant
Are we gonna lose?
Is it gonna last?
Worry about the future, worry 'bout the past
Think we're gonna break before I get a chance to say this

Staring in your eyes, everything simplifies

Girl Harbor - Manchester Orchestra
I don't mean what I say
But I say what I need to

Amateurs - Royal Teeth
Staying up until the sun comes out
There’s a fire burning in me now
Slow and steady that is how I planned it
I have dreams and they are gigantic

Time won’t slow down
There’s never enough
So take what you can and do what you love…

We’re amateurs, we’re lovers
Our days and nights are numbered
Get up, get out and shake the ground
Before the sun goes down

Goals and glory I will sacrifice
Take a risk and leave the rest behind
I’m never giving them a second glance
Say what you want, I’ll take my chances

I’m making waves til the day I vanish
I have dreams and they are gigantic

Sky Full Of Song - Florence + The Machine
Be careful, oh, my darling, oh, be careful what it takes
From what I've seen so far, the good ones always seem to break

Oh, the heart it hides such unimaginable things

Grab me by my ankles, I've been flying for too long
I couldn't hide from the thunder in a sky full of song


Autumn Love - Death Cab For Cutie
Just leave me floating on the open ocean
And let the moonlight take me anywhere on a tidal flow
And if I capsize it's alright
'Cause I've been feeling too invincible

Your Hurricane - Death Cab For Cutie
Heaven is a hole in the sky
The stars are cracks in the ceiling of night
And I just keep watching them for a sign
That you'll be alright

'Cause every time there's a knock on my door
I fall to my hands and knees on the floor
'Cause when your wreckage washes up on my shore
You're not like before

And you try to explain who's at fault for your mistakes
But I won't be the debris in your hurricane

You used to be such a delicate kid
A lonely fish in a sea full of squid
So I can’t blame you for leaving how you did
You just fell off the grid

Alterlife - Rina Sawayama
'Cause she was the girl that I used to be
A girl with no responsibilities
Breaking the armour that I hid behind
I'm not what you see

Why are you so scared of falling?
(Hold your head up high)
Why do you hold on? Stop your mourning
(Rise and redefine)
And all this time been trying
Looking in the wrong place at the wrong time

Magic - Vacation Manor
It's like a weight upon my shoulders
The only dream where I can't sleep

There's no magic in the air
We can't live without a care anymore

Colorful - Jukebox the Ghost
Hey, yeah we're just getting started
Take your fears and let them go

Wanna feel like a light in a dark place
Another color in a world of black and white
Wanna try to paint the world in a new way
Left home with a dream and a suitcase

Dead End Love - XYLØ
And trouble just likes to call your name

It's Just a Start - Royal Teeth
My heart keeps pulling me
Just around the corner
This love ain’t makin’ me
Everything I wanna be
So I’m dancing with chances
I keep making plans

Shrike - Hozier
I couldn't utter my love when it counted
But I'm singing like a bird about it now
And I couldn't whisper when you needed it shouted
But I'm singing like a bird about it now

Remember me love, when I'm reborn
As a shrike to your sharp and glorious thorn

I'd no idea on what ground I was founded
All of that goodness is going with you now
Then when I met you, my virtues uncounted
All of my goodness is going with you now

Stuck for lyrics that suit your character's personality? Know their enneagram type?

Well the guy from Sleeping At Last put out an album with a song for each of the "9 personality types", and they're all v poetic and potentially useful! I have linked the full lyrics for each, but have some snippets too:

No, I'm not saying perfect exists in this life
But we'll only know for certain if we try

I want to sing a song worth singing
I'll write an anthem worth repeating

But the list goes on forever
Of all the ways I could be better

I just want to build you up, build you up
'Til you're good as new
And maybe one day I will get around to fixing myself too

I just want to love you, to love you, to love you well
I just want to learn how, somehow, to be loved myself

Like a force to be reckoned with
A mighty ocean or a gentle kiss
I will love you without any strings attached

And I finally see myself
Unabridged and overwhelmed
A mess of a story I'm ashamed to tell
But I'm slowly learning how to break this spell

I only want what's real
I set aside the highlight reel
And leave my greatest failures on display with an asterisk
Worthy of love anyway

Maybe I’m hiding behind metaphor
Maybe my heart needs to break to be sure

But I’ve fallen in love with a ghost
And I lost my balance when I needed it most

I’m stuck swimming in shadows down here
It’s been forever since I came up for air

What if we already are
Who we’ve been dying to become

I want to watch the universe expand
I want to break it into pieces small enough to understand

A white flag waves in the dark between my head and my heart

I want to take shelter but I'm ready, ready to fight
And somewhere in the middle I feel a little paralyzed

With vigilant heart
I'll push into the dark
But I'll learn to breathe deep
And make peace with the stars

When everything feels heavy, I've learned to travel light

I want to break these bones 'til they're better
I want to break them right and feel alive

I'm shattered porcelain, glued back together again
Invincible like I've never been

I’ve been less than half myself
For more than half my life

I’m just trying to find myself
Through someone else’s eyes

How do I forgive myself
For losing so much time?

Final Bow by Us The Duo
I'm a little bit confused
Can't seem to tell what's real or not

I should have seen it from the start
That I could never really be myself

Even smoke machines and lights
Can't cover what my eyes have seen

Watch me walk away, take a final bow

Superman by Ivory Lane
What happened to my childhood dream?
Your language, I no longer speak

But you fell short 'cause you needed lungs to breathe
And you can't fly, look with eyes like laser beams

I was wrong to alter reality
I made you some
Superman you couldn't be

Dance In The Dark by Au/Ra
Shock, shock, horror, horror
If you really thought that
Growing up would be easy

All that drama, drama
Can make you wanna, wanna
Lock your door and throw the key in

Everybody's scared
So dance in the dark
Party with your fears

Can't keep it bottled
Pain is hard to swallow
You cross your heart without bleeding

[I won't be putting any more of Au/Ra lyrics but they only get better. Def recommend Concrete Jungle and Outsiders for quotes]

Be Okay by Oh Honey
I'm wide awake
So what's the point of dreaming?
When your life is great
Celebrate the feeling

Can't complain about much these days
I believe we'll be okay

Sun kissed skin on my lips

Pierre by Ryn Weaver
I danced in the desert, in the pouring rain
Drank with the devil and forgot my name

Woke with somebody when the morning came
No one there to shame me for my youth

Spend the days dreaming and the nights awake
Doin' things we know we shouldn't do

You call me up and ask me how I've been
I'll call your bluff and
Keep on telling, telling, telling you lies

New album, new adoptable lyrics!

Surviving - Jimmy Eat World
Don't hide your face, what you were before
It doesn't have to be you anymore

Gonna stand this ground
Gonna say it loud
Never define yourself
By choices others make

555 - Jimmy Eat World
I keep my focus on the simple things
Try to find some peace along the way

One Mil - Jimmy Eat World
I'll try but I could waste one million chances
Before you're gone
Before I get your name

All The Way (Stay) - Jimmy Eat World
But how am I supposed to know
Oh no, when to let the feelings show

There's what I want and what I need
And the latter takes a while to see

And I believe that what I've learned has worth
And what I choose to do means something

Diamond - Jimmy Eat World
They say a diamond grows with time

Careful - Michelle Featherstone
They pulled me in
And I'm defenseless
I try to ignore
Like I've done before
But it's just useless

This is gonna hurt if it ever ends
But somehow you out shattered my defense
This is gonna hurt if it ever starts
So promise you'll be careful with my heart

They made me fall hard for you and I can't help it
And it's every day that I feel this way
So just don't stop it
