My favorite lyrics. Ever.

One of my favorite questions to ask people is, "What's your favorite lyric?" Few people automatically think of a line that left an impression on their mind.

A lot of lyrics mean too much to me. Sometimes I never hear the song again, sometimes I listen to it 100 more times. But when they mean too much, I write them down. I have a wall in my room that I have written many of these on for the past year and a half.

*written in the order of hearing them*

I don't want the world to see me

'Cause I don't think that they'd understand

When everything's made to be broken

I just want you to know who I am

I've never known the loving of a man

But it sure felt nice when he was

Holding my hand

Ten decisions shape your life

You'll be aware of 5 about

7 ways to get ahead

7 reasons to drop out

When I said "I can see me in your eyes"

You said "I can see you in my bed"

That's not just friendship, that's romance too

There is a time when we all fail

Some people take it pretty well

Some take it all out on themselves

Oh all the girls played mental games

And all the guys were dressed the same

Emily, yeah

You're so spiteful and so mean

With your afternoon routine

You don't know why I'm upset, neither do I

I'm fine if you'll let me be alone when I cry

You’ll have to lose all them childish notions

If you’re gonna let these American boys

Put another dent in your life

To find someone who cares is getting

Harder to find

If I could go back to the day we met

I’d probably just stay in bed

The only one who’s got enough of me to break my heart

I’d do anything for you

But would you do that for me, too?

I’ll be your biggest fan and you’ll be mine

But I still want to break your heart

And make you cry

Never been a liar,

I'm a lilac

We woke under a blanket

All tangled up in skin

Not knowing in that moment

We'd never speak again

But it was perfect

I never will forget

When we owned the night

Emily, we can work this out

But it'll hurt you, child

How's that broken heart for you?

How's that workin' out?

Being blue is better than being over it

Kiss me on my neck

Tell me all your fears

'Cause the rush of love is gone

I'm tryna find out why it disappeared

Do you remember

Our love in June

That shit was so real

But there's patches on my fingers that won't heal

There's patches on my fingers that won't feel

Why'd you have to fucking disappear

I don’t wanna lose myself loving you

A word only a sound if you misuse it

You took your smile back to New York but you left your toothbrush

And I hope you bought a new one but I'd love you toothless

I lost myself in fear of losing you

At the party tonight

You said you couldn't leave my sight

'Cause you don't seem to like

The way the boys say I have pretty eyes

Just because you’re hurting doesn’t mean I’m not

If it doesn’t go away by the time I turn 30

I made a mistake and I’ll tell you I’m sorry

Sorry I didn’t kiss you

But it’s obvious I wanted to

I used to think you're the only thing bright like the moon

Do you still scroll through them texts messages

Got me thinkin' 'bout the things that you said

It was real

I wanna know if you’re not okay

But I get too attached to the things you say

I don’t wanna be your friend

I wanna kiss your lips

Paint a picture in my brain, encapsulate the fleeting feeling

It ricochets, replace my pain 'til every trace is leaving

I just set the record, baby you are not the one

And though it's all a game, I want it

You've come out here to waste my time

As I'm saying, go ahead and waste it

You check your complexion

To find your reflection's all alone

I had to go

Is it longing that you're drawing to?

Could it be that he has got me when it's you?

I'm just black licorice

And all the people that I know

Would rather leave me in the bowl

I'm in love

But not with anybody else

Just wanna get to know myself

I know supposedly I'm lonely now

Know I'm supposed to be unhappy

Without someone

But aren't I someone?

everyone just wants to be in love

You don't know what love is

If you don't put up a fight

You don't know what love is

If you don't stay up all night, crying

Boy and you don't know what love is

If you're too good to call a million times

You’re afraid of the things in your life that you might just lose

The only time you're slept on is when I’m dreaming

And the best thing you've ever done for me

Is to help me take my life less seriously

It's only life after all

Sometimes I just want somebody

Someone who reminds me

That they’ll always love me

When the truth is

I miss you

I started looking for excuses

Come on in

I've gotta tell you what a state I'm in

I've gotta tell you in my loudest tones

That I started looking for a warning sign

I crawl back into your open arms

I stopped by the bar at three A.M.

To seek solace in a bottle, or possibly a friend

I've gotta start keeping my distance

Cuz I don’t wanna fall again

The day that I met you I started dreaming

Floating, but I feel like I’m dying

Every single word you say makes me feel some type of way

It's the thought of you that slightly scares me

The day that I met you I started dreaming

Now I write 'em down if I remember in the morning time

What to do

Cuz I never stay too long

and lately I am just an after thought

Why don’t you cry?

I wanna live like I mean it

You make me wanna cry in a good way

I would do anything to

Get you out your room

25 when I got sober

Couldn’t seem to pass the time

I think I’m really lovesick

Can you please tell me the


If we’re gonna die

Let’s die somewhere pretty

It's like the only time I see your face

Is when mine is on my pillow case

Why do I crave your attention?

Go back to a time when I was just a girl

When I had the whole world

Gently wrapped around me

A lot is gonna change in your lifetime

Sorry for not knowing

This is smaller than it seems

I think I hate you but I don’t know why

I'm just a kid

I suffocate and slip

Tell you how I felt

Sugar coated melting in your mouth

Do I stay on your mind like you do or am I just afraid?

I made him perfect because I wanted him to be

Why are you just stuck in my brain?

I wanna be your support

I wanna feel your pain

I know we weren’t together

But we’re more than friends

I’ll never be

The girl of your dreams

I’m just the girl that you need

Younger me thought this'd be more bittersweet

But we never noticed how long it'd been

Got too caught up in the life we were living

I'll tell myself another lie and pretend that you were never enough

But you were always enough, you were almost too much for me

When you feel so tired

But you can’t sleep

I even thought I couldn't be sadder than that

I am

I wanna be just like

The girls you like

I wanna be what you fantasize

When you’re too in love

To let it go

If you never try you’ll never know

Just what you’re worth

There is no reason and no rhyme

There is no reason, no alibi

For those we love and those we must bid goodbye

There's just a moment too soon

Or a second too late

When you get what you want,

But not what you need

I wouldn't dare try

See, I know not of life and even less of loss

So I wouldn't dare try

Not god

Not us

But something in the middle

As I'm getting older, chip up on my shoulder

Rolling through life, to roll over and die

My heart's seen things I wish it didn't

Somewhere I lost some of my innocence

And I miss it

I miss it

Oh mama, actin' like my life's already over

Oh dear, act your age and try another year



But it is easy when you’re older

To figure out the things

That do and do not work

Don't buy me red roses

Don't be such a poser

Don't try to seduce me too

You'd like me ecstatic

I know I'll regret it

If I don't tell it straight to you

I'm not romantic

Don't be dramatic

'Cause I'm not romantic

You can only like me when you're drunk

I wouldn’t ask you to take care of me

We had it all

And you were my friend

We're gonna stay out

Gonna break some hearts

We're gonna dance

Till the dance floor falls apart

If I'm always on the run, playing deaf and playing dumb

I can tune it out

For all the things my hands have held

The best by far is you

If you're a woman, you were made to pleasure me

But out in public, hide them shoulders underneath

We’re too young to be this nervous

But when your eyes are leaking

That's my weakness

When your smile's in pieces

That's when I feel it all

I'm nervous couldn’t tell you why

Piece it all

Back together again

But I think we were healing

Even though we didn't mean to

Sometimes the only way to get over hurt is to hurt

Why does every love song remind me of you?

I'm trying to write these songs

I always end up writing about you

Truth is I think about you often

After laughter comes tears

Living in hell ‘cause we lost faith in the place up above

I don't wanna be funny anymore

Lately, I've been feeling like the odd man out

I don't wanna be funny anymore

I got a too short skirt, maybe I can be the cute one

Pass it on, she's done with the old times

That funny girl doesn't wanna smile for a while

In five years I hope the songs feel like covers

Dedicated to new lovers

Pay for my coffee

And leave

Before the sun goes down

Why did I come here? To sit and watch you stare at your feet?

Without you I am surely the last of our kind

Now bite your tongue, it's too dangerous to fall so young

Take back what you said

Can't lose what you never had

Try not to laugh

I know it'll be hard

I'm serious

I know it's a first but.

Maybe I should try harder...

You should lower your expectations

I'm no quick-curl barbie

I was never cut out for Prom Queen

You can come to mine, but both my roommates are home

I used to like to go out before I met you

Now I just go out to forget you

I wanna hit you

Just to see if

You’ll cry

Keep knocking on wood

Hoping that

There’s a real boy inside

I don’t want your Instagram

Just want you to hold my hand

Trynna get connected

I don’t need no wifi

I can’t get you out of my head

Like my favorite song

Every day's your birthday

You threw a party but you kinda hate all your friends

So you're cryin' in a driveway

Killin' time, gettin' high, can't wait 'til it ends

There he goes

There he goes again

Racing through my brain

And I just can’t contain

This feeling that remains

Put your hand in mine

You know that I won’t stop

Until I make you mine

Lately I've been feeling strange

And everybody's telling me to act my age

I never thought that everything I had, would fade away

Where did all my friends go?

Standing on our street but nobody’s home

Fight or flight, I'd rather die

Than have to cry in front of you

Fight or flight, I'd rather lie

Than tell you I'm in love with you

How are you feeling? How are you doing?

I'm sorry, I just wanted to hear your voice so clear

Why would you ever kiss me

I’m not even half as pretty

I can’t be the kiss that you don’t need

The lie between your teeth

"I don't love you anymore"

A pretty line that I adore

Five words that I've heard before

No one will love me now

Cuz you’re all I can talk about

You keep me on a rope

And tied a noose around my throat

You're gone then back at my door

If I get more pretty, do you think he will like me?

A perfect world is never perfect

Only filled with lies


I've never seen a mouth

That I would kill to kiss

And I'm terrified

Sour apple baby, but you taste so sweet

I'm a sad girl, in this big world

It's a mad world

All of my friends know what's happened

You're a bad thing (ah!)

I can’t go for being twice as nice

Use my body now you want my soul

You pushed away

I held you close

Aren't you the guy who

Tried to

Hurt me with the word


Boys will be boys

But you’re not like

The other ones

What will I do

Without you

When tomorrow comes

All I do is think of you and cry

Life's a losing game

When you don’t play

Feel gangsta every time

I see ya

How far away can I walk

Till I’m too far from home

She said she never been in love

All she ever did was give a love

Everyone they only take a love

So you scared of love

I don’t blame you love

You should take it as a compliment

That I got drunk and made fun of the way you talk

You should think about the consequence

Of your magnetic field being a little too strong

You should take it as a compliment

That I’m talking to everyone

Here but you

If you've got a girlfriend, I'm jealous of her

But if you're single that's honestly worse

'Cause you're so gorgeous it actually hurts

Ocean blue eyes looking in mine

I feel like I might sink and drown and die

Girl you shouldn’t be so scared to fall in love

You make me so happy, it turns back to sad

There's nothing I hate more than what I can't have

Please don’t ever become a stranger

Who’s laugh I could recognize anywhere

If you can see it from the front

Wait till you see it from the back

I thought that I was dreaming

When you said you love me

And the more and more I drink, I am afraid

That I'm just killing myself

Got me fearing for my health

I'm scared that Hell is just a place on Earth

And I pray to God I leave

Before Satan pours another drink

I’m used to being see through

But it feels so bad when it

Happens with you

And you showing off

But it’s alright

This is your life

I'm just trying to be cool

It's all because of you

Of all the things you wished you’d never done

I’ve heard you say this is number one

Don't dream of all the ways things could have been

Remember all the faces you let in

Remember all the faces still unseen

And soon enough, you'll see just what I mean

A week or two at home and you'll want more

Let her know you love her if you do, boy

Let her know what's on the road ahead

Cheers to you for never breaking down

So surprised you ever came this far

You've always felt it's hard to voice complaints

But what you voice is what will drive your fate

And old things never really got that bad

Dreams of greener grass'll drive you mad

They say it’s better to have loved and lost

Than to not have loved at all

Some people think it’s supposed to hurt

Like it couldn’t be real

If he’s putting you first

All you gotta do is

Leave it better

Than you found it

I came round the back road

Didn't have no make-up on

You said you loved me

I said: darling, don't be dumb

Is it a crime that I’m just trying to hold you?

This mess is worse than what I thought

It's not just clothes thrown on the floor

I've done this too many times before

And that's why I need you to

Clean me up

I know the plan was just one night and act like strangers

But I told a lie

'Cause I crossed my fingers

Slow down, you're doing fine

You can't be everything you want to be

Before your time

Don't blame me for fallin'

I was just a little boy

Don't blame the drunk caller

Wasn't ready for it all

I'm young and in love with someone who don't love me

I'm dumb, I get drunk to pretend that he does, see

I live and I learn but forget all the lessons

Is it alright

To feel this way

So early

You gave me your jacket

I said I don't feel the cold

Maybe I'm damaged

I don't feel a thing at all

I promise one day I’ll feel fine

How did I try

To get you off my mind

Could this be the end

Of you and I for now

Hope that I see you soon

Don’t know what I would do

My heart is under the weather

I know that I'm the only

One who can heal it

I'm on my own

I try to beat the struggle for you

But that's just too hard for anyone to do

You wanted to show me

That it wasn't just because

You were lonely

Time is fading away

I should've said it sooner

I know that you think you sound silly when you call my name

But I hear it inside my head all day

Every night

Think of things I can't do or haven't done

It doesn't make me weak, sometimes I feel like I can't breathe

Don't you wait for something more

I'll still be sinking to the floor

When’s the last time you called me

Just to say hi?

Feelings are so fragile

Egos are always blown

Temporary people

Temporary feelings

Everything's so pointless

Say a bunch of stuff

Make me fall in love

Then we'll give it up

Well, so tired of being so tired

Why I gotta build something beautiful just to go set it on fire?

Wait I can't fall in love, just yet

But I wanna fall in love

But don't wanna waste it all

On someone who comes and goes

Like that

But Grace only likes guys that are in love with her

But I can't be falling in love

Stop man just fall in love

He feels handcrafted just for you

But he's a little bit too far away

Prolonged eye contact in casual conversation

I'll give you to someone better

I have friends that'll be on Earth for longer

I have friends that won't feel like monsters being unwanted

And wanting too much

Being unwanted

And wanting too much

Feeding the idea of you

Leaving you starving

I knew it was you the whole time

I knew it was you while I was with him

I knew it was you when you sang me that song you wrote about her

And you know you love him

And you might be(fall) in love with him

And you know you love him

And you're falling in love with him

I kissed every stranger in the corridor that night

I think I was searching for a taste of you in everyone

Why can’t you want me

Like the other boys do

They stare at me

While I stare at you

I simply want him more

Because he looks the other way

Voted most likely to end up on the back of a milk box drink

Looks like I'm letting them down

They were just 16

When the people were mean

So they didn’t love themselves

And now they’re gone

Headstones on a lawn

Take a walk inside my mind

See the thoughts that hide in here

I hope whoever it is holds their breath around you

Cuz I know I did

I’m not your type

Wishing you’d take some time

to realize

Call me Dahmer cuz your hearts so tasty

Feeling like Violet Beauregarde

Chewing on time like a chocolate bar

‘Cause they loved one another

But never discovered ‘cause they were too afraid

Of what they’d say

Moved to different states

Can’t visualize me without you

So I’ll reinvent the girl I knew

I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works

It ain’t funny, it ain’t pretty, it ain’t sweet

I blamed it on high school

Eight hours a day

Of searching for yourself

In the same place

Talking with my mother

She said where'd you find this guy

I said young people fall in love

With the wrong people sometimes

You can think that you're in love

When you're really just in pain

I’m not into sometimes

You've got your passion, you've got your pride

But don't you know that only fools are satisfied?

Never been in love before

What the fuck are fucking feelings yo

Once upon a time I was a hoe

Now I don't even wanna hoe no more

Often I am upset

That I cannot fall in love but I guess

That avoids the stress of falling out of it

Just turned 14 and I think this year I’m gonna be mean

You’ve got so much to do

And only so many hours in a day

Don’t even go near a mirror

It’ll kill ya

Trust me you don’t wanna see yourself

Shut up, count your calories. I never looked good in mom jeans.

When you cry

You waste your time

Over boys you never liked

Can you not be so obvious

And I hope the love that you find

Swallows you wholly

Like you said it might

And otherwise

If only sometimes

Would you give it up, blue eyes?

Why does it feel like I'm older than I ask to be?

I’m so tired of moving on

Spending every weekend

So far gone

That’s how I end up again

Every time I think I find love again

There is goes

It’s a shame

that you and that heart of yours

Took your time

Built it all up and just

Let it fade

She might seem perfect and gorgeous and lovely

You may think she likes you

I mean I thought she loved me

Neither of us will get down from the shelf

The only one she loves is herself

All I have is myself at the end of the day

You’re just one click away

From something real or fake

Are you into me,

Like I’m into you?

Make me crazy, make me old

Save me roses, text my phone

Didn't mean to hurt you

Then please explain my broken heart

***Good companion, but not compatible

I don't know where I'm going

I don't know who I am

I wish that I felt passion once again

I’m well aware

I write too many songs about you

Never thought that you'd be able to

Let me fall in the worst way

Pushed everyone away

Just to make you my priority
