Imagine Dragons: "Thief"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HASolTSK_T8

"Thief"

If only you
You could see
The darkest place that you could be
Oh maybe then you'd understand
From desert heat to cobbled streets
From broken home to the city beat
There's so much more than you could know

[Chorus:]
So take me back
When I believed
Back when I was unafraid
Just like a thief
And all the heights
That I could reach
Back when I was unafraid
Just like a thief

If I could live a thousand times
If I could make a thousand tries
Maybe then I'd get it right
The more I see, the more I know
That everyone just wants a show
No we don't want to see the truth

[Chorus]

When the stars look down on me
What do they see
[x5]

[Chorus]

Imagine Dragons: "Dream"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWu7JDETw_I

"Dream"

In the dark
And I'm right on the middle mark
I'm just in the tier of everything that rides below the surface
And I watch from a distance seventeen
And I'm short of the others dreams of being golden and on top
It's not what you painted in my head
There's so much there instead of all the colors that I saw

We all are living in a dream,
But life ain't what it seems
Oh everything's a mess
And all these sorrows I have seen
They lead me to believe
That everything's a mess

But I wanna dream
I wanna dream
Leave me to dream

In the eyes
Of a teenage crystallized
Oh the prettiest of lights that hang the hallways of the home
And the cries from the strangers out at night
They don't keep us up at night
We have the curtains drawn and closed

We all are living in a dream,
But life ain't what it seems
Oh everything's a mess
And all these sorrows I have seen
They lead me to believe
That everything's a mess

But I wanna dream
I wanna dream
Leave me to dream

I know all your reasons
To keep me from seeing
Everything is actually a mess
But now I am leaving
All of us were only dreaming
Everything is actually a mess

We all are living in a dream
But life ain't what it seems
Oh everything's a mess
And all these sorrows I have seen
They lead me to believe
That everything's a mess

But I wanna dream
I wanna dream
Leave me to dream

I wanna dream
I wanna dream
Leave me to dream

Sia: "Bird Set Free"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqNp-KXiAHo

"Bird Set Free"

Clipped wings, I was a broken thing
Had a voice, had a voice but I could not sing
You would wind me down
I struggled on the ground
So lost, the line had been crossed
Had a voice, had a voice but I could not talk
You held me down
I struggle to fly now

But there's a scream inside that we are frightened
We hold on so tight, we cannot deny
Eats us alive, oh it eats us alive
Yes, there's a scream inside that we are frightened
We hold on so tight, but I don't wanna die, no
I don't wanna die, I don't wanna die

I'm not gon' care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me
I shout it out like a bird set free
No I don't care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me

I'll shout it out like a bird set free (3x)

Now I fly, hit the high notes
I have a voice, have a voice, hear me roar tonight
You held me down
But I fought back loud

But there's a scream inside that we are frightened
We hold on so tight, we cannot deny
Eats us alive, oh it eats us alive
Yes, there's a scream inside that we are frightened
We hold on so tight, but I don't wanna die, no
I don't wanna die, I don't wanna die

I'm not gon' care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me
I shout it out like a bird set free
No I don't care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me

I'll shout it out like a bird set free (6x)

Christina Perri: "Human"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2X43XF8247E

"Human"

I can hold my breath
I can bite my tongue
I can stay awake for days
If that's what you want
Be your number one

I can fake a smile
I can force a laugh
I can dance and play the part
If that's what you ask
Give you all I am

I can do it
I can do it
I can do it

But I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down
I'm only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
'Cause I'm only human

I can turn it on
Be a good machine
I can hold the weight of worlds
If that's what you need
Be your everything

I can do it
I can do it
I'll get through it

But I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down
I'm only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
'Cause I'm only human

I'm only human
I'm only human
Just a little human

I can take so much
'Till I've had enough

'Cause I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down
I'm only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
'Cause I'm only human

Andrew Belle: "In My Veins"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGESwIFmOTA

"In My Veins"

Nothing goes as planned
Everything will break
People say goodbye
In their own special way
All that you rely on
And all that you can fake
Will leave you in the morning
But find you in the day

Oh, you're in my veins
And I cannot get you out
Oh, you're all I taste
At night inside of my mouth
Oh, you run away
'Cause I am not what you found
Oh, you're in my veins
And I cannot get you out

Everything will change
Nothing stays the same
Nobody here's perfect
Oh, but everyone's to blame
Oh, all that you rely on
And all that you can save
Will leave you in the morning
And find you in the day

Oh, you're in my veins
And I cannot get you out
Oh, you're all I taste
At night inside of my mouth
Oh, you run away
'Cause I am not what you found
Oh, you're in my veins
And I cannot get you out

(No, I cannot get you out)
(No, I cannot get you)
(Oh no, I cannot get you out)
(No, I cannot get you)

Everything is dark
It's more than you can take
But you catch a glimpse of sun light
Shining, shining down on your face
Your face
Oh your face

Oh, you're in my veins
And I cannot get you out
Oh, you're all I taste
At night inside of my mouth
Oh, you run away
'Cause I am not what you found
Oh, you're in my veins
And I cannot get you out
(No)

No, I cannot get you out
(Oh, you're in my veins)
No, I cannot get you out
Oh no, I cannot get you

The following song could be quite disturbing if you interpret it the same way as I'm doing it now, I guess.
I listen to it, as would one of my abusers sing this song to me.

Starting with what he gave in the beginning; the laughter and crying. The crude "helped you open up your legs" is quite disturbing. But in the following he goes further in making me an accomplice. Because he talks about what I gave in return without intend. Like "you helped me love". And further on he makes it totally unbearable as it becomes "we" the further he goes.

But maybe I'm just paranoid. It could go about a break-up of a love-affair as it is quite common in a grown-up world.


Damien Rice: "The Greatest Bastard"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_CruddPIVQ

"The Greatest Bastard"

I made you laugh, I made you cry
I made you open up your eyes, didn't I?
I helped you open up your wings,
Your legs, and many other things, didn't I?

Am I the greatest bastard that you know?
The only one who let you go?
Or the one you hurt so much you cannot bear?
We were good when we were good
When we were not misunderstood

You helped me love, you helped me live,
You helped me learn how to forgive, didn't you?
I wish that I could say the same,
But when you left, you left the blame, didn't you?

Am I the greatest bastard that you met?
The only one you can't forget?
Am I the one your truth's been waiting for?
Or am I just dreaming once again?
Some dreams are better when they end…

Some make it, mistake it
Some force and some will fake it
I never meant to let you down…
Some ret it, forget it
Some ruin and some regret it
I never meant to let you down

We learned to wag and tuck our tails,
We learned to win and then to fail, didn't we?
We learned that lovers love to sing
And that losers love to cling, didn't we?

Am I the greatest bastard that you know?
When will we learn to let this go?
We fought so much we've broken all the charm
But letting go is not the same as pushing someone else away

So please don't let on you don't know me,
Please don't let on I'm not here…
Please don't let on you don't love me, cause I know you do…
I know…

That some make it, mistake it
Some force and some will fake it
But I never meant to let you down…
Some fret it, forget it
Some ruin and some regret it
But I never meant to let you down
I never meant to let you
I never meant to let you down
I never meant…

I listen to it and think about my inner child when he sings about 'my oldest friend'.

Andrew Belle: "My Oldest Friend"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlm89beCBME

"My Oldest Friend"

Don't wanna sound ridiculous
but I think you know I'm sick of this
and I kinda think that we can bend, do you?
I'll try to be a better friend to you
you know I miss ya in my life
and I kinda think that I realise
that I was only lookin' out for me
instead of gettin' you the help you need

who do you think you are?
who do I think I am?
barely listening to my oldest
my oldest friend

oh my oldest, my oldest friend

I've given one, you've taken two
but this medicine has followed you
from the eastern coast and back again
so I tell you once but not again
that I only miss you in my life
and I hope you finally realise
that I'm only looking out for you
when I'm not afraid to see this through

who do you think you are?
who do I think I am?
barely listening to my oldest
my oldest friend

oh my oldest, my oldest friend

So wanna sound ridiculous
'cause I think you know I'm sick of this
and I kinda think that we can bend, do you?
I'll try to be a better friend to you
you know I miss ya in my life
and I kinda think I realise
that I was only lookin' out for me
instead of gettin' you the help that you need

whoa-oh, whoa-oh oooh, whoa-oh oooh

The following song could give you an idea what a vicious circle means. For me thinking in circles has prevented me for so long from letting go of the quilt, shame and thrusting issues. It still is hard to not fall back in that old thinking schedule. 'Maybe later', is so much easier then to tackle it in the present.
Also the last part where the singer goes on and on about 'it's not enough'. It's so recognizable, as wanting to be perfect, means it's never good enough, it could always be better.

Damien Rice: "Long Long Way"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5yRKJ-gU48

"Long Long Way"

Long long way to the top
Long way down if you fall
And it's a long way back if you get lost

Long way out to the end
Long way to go to lose your friends
It's a long way to haul all the traps you've trawled
When you could just stop and let go

But you say
"Not now, maybe later…
But not now, maybe later…
Not now, maybe later…"
(You're only in your way)
"But not now, maybe later…"
(You're only in your way)
"Not now, maybe later…"
(You're only in your way)
"But not now, maybe later…"
(You're only in your way)
"But not now, maybe… wait…"
(You're only in your way)

'Cause love is tough
When enough is not enough
Not enough
Not enough
Not enough…

Soley: "I'll Drown"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGDrN7j6esY

"I'll Drown"

He is alone
in his house out there
far far away
he sleeps with his eyes open.
He was so sad last night
in his house out there
he took my hand
and whispered

I like his old style
in his house out there
his windows are eyes
his garden has waterfalls.
But his waterfalls are tears,
(they) come from him
he will fill this house
he takes my hand
and whispers.

I’ll drown when i see you

His tears run so fast
in his house out there
we try to get out
his house took our hands and smiled
we’ll never escape
from this sad, sad house
i take his hand
We sink.

I’ll drown when i see you

Sting: "Fragile"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmDQFWNjHpA

"Fragile"

If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one
Drying in the colour of the evening sun
Tomorrow's rain will wash the stains away
But something in our minds will always stay
Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime's argument
That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are how fragile we are
How fragile we are how fragile we are
