"Hard Rain" - Shout Out Louds
The words came like a hard rain / And your smile changed like a hurricane / Your breath smells like cardamom / And the words came just like a hard rain

"100 Suns" - 30 Seconds to Mars
I believe in nothing / not the end and not the start / I believe in nothing / not the earth and not the stars / I believe in nothing / not the day and not the dark / I believe in nothing / But the beating of our hearts / I believe in nothing / One hundred suns until we part

"Motherland" - Heather Nova
To watch you breathing is all that I can do / To see you smile, my only wish come true / I'm living, living for you / The waves roll in, I help you swim / You take my hand / And through the years and through the fears / I'll be your rock, the motherland

"Roads" - Portishead
How can it feel, this wrong / From this moment / How can it feel, this wrong /Storm.. in the morning light / I feel / No more can I say / Frozen to myself

"Simple Joys" - Beautiful Small Machines
But I'll sit real still, if you don't tell / There's a heartbeat in the wire / There's a soul caught in the beat / The veins, the feet / They all expire

"The Scientist" - Coldplay
Nobody said it was easy / It's such a shame for us to part / Nobody said it was easy? / No one ever said it would be this hard / Oh, take me back to the start

"The Waterfront (The Sinking Road)" - The Black Heart Procession
This is a sinking anchor that we hold so dear / were you worn out from the start cut out and never replaced? / you held at arms length / you so afraid / you by the waterfront / you still alive / you move away / you want to wash away what ills your heart / you stand by the waterfront never sure of your choice

"Strange Wind" - POE
Oh, I've got so much to tell you / I've been lonely, I've been wild / And when I see it in your eyes a wilder cry than even mine / I know something's hidden inside / Strange wind that cries

"Gone Away" - The Offspring
Maybe in another life / I could find you there / Pulled away before your time / I can't deal it's so unfair / And it feels / Yeah it feels like / Heaven's so far away / And it feels / Yeah it feels like the world has grown cold / Now that you've gone away
