Category: Song Lyrics

And you weaken your love
And you hold it above your head
Success is a song of the heart, not a song of your bed
— The Paper Kites “Willow Tree March”

If you must mourn,
Don’t do it alone.
If you must leave,
Leave as though fire burns under your feet
If you must speak,
Speak every word as though it were unique
If you must die, sweetheart
Die knowing your life was my life’s best part
And if you must die,
Remember your life
— Keaton Henson “You”

Shane Koyczan – To This Day

I’m not the only kid

Who grew up this way

Surrounded by people who used to say

That rhyme about sticks and stones

As if broken bones

Hurt more than the names we got called

And we got called them all

So we grew up believing no one

Would ever fall in love with us

That we’d be lonely forever

That we’d never meet someone

To make us feel like the sun

Was something they built for us

In their tool shed

So broken heart strings bled the blues

As we tried to empty ourselves

So we would feel nothing

Don’t tell me that hurts less than a broken bone

That an ingrown life

Is something surgeons can cut away

That there’s no way for it to metastasize

It does
