L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore can

Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don't break it
Love was made for me and you

L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore can

Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don't break it
Love was made for me and you
Love was made for me and you
Love was made for me and you

Pain

Three Days Grace

Pain without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

You're sick of feeling numb
You're not the only one
I'll take you by the hand
And I'll show you a world that you can understand
This life is filled with hurt
When happiness doesn't work
Trust me and take my hand
When the lights go out, you'll understand

Pain without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Pain without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Anger and agony are better than misery
Trust me, I've got a plan
When the lights go up, you'll understand

Pain without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd like to feel pain than nothing
Rather feel pain

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
That you're wounded
You know, you know, you know, you know
That I'm here to save you
You know, you know, you know, you know
I'm always here for you
I know, I know, I know, I know
That you'll thank me later

Pain without love
Pain, can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Pain without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Pain without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Rather feel pain than nothing at all
Rather feel pain

"Moving On" -- Asking Alexandria

A boy of anguish, now he's a man of soul
Traded in his misery for the lonely life of the road
The years were cruel to him
No, he won't let them go
Lays awake tryna' find the man inside to pack his bags and escape this world

I've never been so torn up in all of my life
I should have seen this coming
I've never felt so hopeless than I do tonight
I don't wanna do this anymore, I'm moving on

He wanted to change the world, to make it all worthwhile
So he put his pen to paper and poured out everything inside
His red eyes tearing up at the man that he'd became
Slowly, but surely on the fast track to falling into his grave

I've never been so torn up in all of my life
I should have seen this coming
I've never felt so hopeless than I do tonight
I don't wanna do this anymore, I'm moving on

I can't believe I've come so far in such short time
And I'm still fighting on my own
If I stop to catch my breath up I might never breathe again, so just know this:

I've never been so torn up in all of my life, I can't believe I let myself break down

I've never been so torn up in all of my life
I should have seen this coming
I've never felt so hopeless than I do tonight
I don't wanna do this anymore

I've never been so torn up in all of my life
I should have seen this coming
I've never felt so hopeless than I do tonight
No, I don't wanna do this anymore, I'm moving on

A boy of anguish now, he's a man of soul
Traded in his misery for the lonely life of the road

Read these two songs (or listen) in the "context" of nonduality. It's pretty much guaranteed (though who would know?) that it's not the intended context, but it works perfectly as songs from me (I) to what is (or even the human-being, or God), longing after what is (you; he) and union (we) with what is.

 

"My Happy Ending" -- Avril Lavigne

So much for my happy ending
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Let's talk this over
It's not like we're dead
Was it something I did?
Was it something you said?
Don't leave me hanging
In a city so dead
Held up so high on such a breakable thread (breakable thread)

You were all the things I thought I knew
And I thought we could be

You were everything, everything that I wanted (that I wanted)
We were meant to be, supposed to be, but we lost it (we lost it)
And all of the memories, so close to me, just fade away
All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
So much for my happy ending
Oh, oh, oh, oh

You've got your dumb friends
I know what they say (know what they say)
They tell you I'm difficult
But so are they (but so are they)
But they don't know me
Do they even know you? (even know you)
All the things you hide from me
All the shit that you do (all the shit that you do)

You were all the things I thought I knew
And I thought we could be

You were everything, everything that I wanted (that I wanted)
We were meant to be, supposed to be, but we lost it (we lost it)
And all of the memories, so close to me, just fade away
All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending

It's nice to know that you were there
Thanks for acting like you cared
And making me feel like I was the only one
It's nice to know we had it all
Thanks for watching as I fall
And letting me know we were done

He was everything, everything that I wanted
We were meant to be, supposed to be, but we lost it
And all of the memories, so close to me just fade away
All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending

You were everything, everything that I wanted (that I wanted)
We were meant to be, supposed to be, but we lost it
And all of the memories, so close to me, just fade away
All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending

"Keep Holding On" -- Avril Lavigne
 

You're not alone
Together we stand
I'll be by your side, you know I'll take your hand
When it gets cold
And it feels like the end
There's no place to go
You know I won't give in
No I won't give in

Keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through
Just stay strong
'Cause you know I'm here for you, I'm here for you
There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through

So far away
I wish you were here
Before it's too late, this could all disappear
Before the doors close
And it comes to an end
With you by my side I will fight and defend
I'll fight and defend
Yeah, yeah

Keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through
Just stay strong
'Cause you know I'm here for you, I'm here for you
There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through

Hear me when I say, when I say I believe
Nothing's gonna change, nothing's gonna change destiny
Whatever's meant to be will work out perfectly
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

La da da da
La da da da
La da da da da da da da da

Keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through
Just stay strong
'Cause you know I'm here for you, I'm here for you
There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through

Keep holding on
Keep holding on

There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through

"Echo" -- Trapt

 

Close my eyes, let the whole thing pass me by
There is no time...
to waste asking why
I'll run away with you by my side
I'll run away with you by my side
(close my eyes, let the whole thing pass me by)
I need to let go, let go, let go, let go of this pride
(asking why)

I think about your face, and how I fall into your eyes
The outline that I trace, around the one that I call mine
A time that called for space, unclear where you drew the line
I don't need to solve this case, and I don't need to look behind

Close my eyes, let the whole thing pass me by
There is no time to waste asking why (asking why)
I'll run away with you by my side (by my side)
I'll run away with you by my side (I'll run away with you)
(close my eyes, let the whole thing pass me by)
I need to let go, let go, let go, let go of this pride
(asking why)

Do I expect to change the past I hold inside
With all the words I say repeating over in my mind
Some things you can't erase, no matter how hard you try
An exit to escape is all there is left to find

Close my eyes, let the whole thing pass me by
There is no time to waste asking why (asking why)
I'll run away with you by my side (by my side)
I'll run away with you by my side (I'll run away with you)
(close my eyes, let the whole thing pass me by)
I need to let go, let go, let go, let go of this pride
Until this echo, echo, echo, echo in my mind
Until this echo, echo, echo, echo can subside

So I
Close my eyes, let the whole thing pass me by
There is no time to waste asking why
I'll run away with you by my side
I'll run away with you by my side (I'll run away with you)
(close my eyes, let the whole thing pass me by)
I need to let go, let go, let go, let go of this pride
Until this echo, echo, echo, echo in my mind
Until this echo, echo, echo, echo can subside

"Calling" -- Taproot

Your face, is burned inside my brain
(I lost my way)
Your taste, of skin flows through my veins
(The cost I pay)

'Cause you'll never understand me
You want me to stay

You're ca-ca-ca-calling
But I can't hear you
I'm not listening anymore
You're subject to falling
But I can't save you
I don't see you anymore

The race of slowing down the pace
(I found a way)
The pace of speaking so mundane
(The sound of gain)

But you'll never make me happy
So I've extinguished the flame

You're ca-ca-ca-calling
But I can't hear you
I'm not listening anymore
You're subject to falling
But I can't save you
I don't see you anymore

And what you want me to say
I'll never say
You're playing the game
That I'll never play
So what do you want from me
Now I've extinguished the flame

You're ca-ca-ca-calling
But I can't hear you
I'm not listening anymore
You're subject to falling
But I can't save you
I don't see you anymore

You're ca-ca-ca-calling
But I can't hear you
I'm not listening anymore
You're fa-fa-fa-falling
But I can't save you
I don't see you anymore

"Matches" -- Ephixa & Stephen Walking

Burn
I'm burning in my skin
Can't get them out of my head
Oh, words
These words you said to me, yeah
Stop my heart, barely beating

And now I'm stuck on the beat
I can't sleep through this madness
It's madness
Tame the fire, suffer to live in the ashes
In the ashes

That's what happens
When gasoline plays with matches
That's what happens, happens, happens
That's what happens
When gasoline plays with matches
That's what happens, happens, happens

Water
I need this like water
Surround ourselves in self destruction
Self worth
Need someone to come reconstruct it
You know it, you got it bad
And I got it, I got it bad
We got it bad
And now we're back to that
Feeling we never had
Just pretend
Catalyze my catatonic mind
Give it life

But until it burns too bright
Burns too bright
Consume whatever's left inside
Under cover of night
With her passed out of sight
We both knew it wasn't right

That's what happens
When gasoline plays with matches
That's what happens, happens, happens
That's what happens
When gasoline plays with matches
That's what happens, happens, happens
When gasoline plays with matches
Yeah, yeah, burn

And we must wanna be hurt
And we must wanna be burned
And we must wanna be burned
And we must wanna be
