Top Ten Songs that I Wish Were Books

We Are The Destroyers - Anberlin

In just a matter of minutes,
just a matter of time,
we could lose it all, we could lose it all.
If all we are is just what we’ve earned,
We are the destroyers.

Call Me When You're Sober - Evanescence

Couldn't take the blame.
Sick with shame.
Must be exhausting to lose your own game.
Selfishly hated,
No wonder you're jaded.
You can't play the victim this time,
And you're too late.

The Writer - Ellie Goulding

You wait for a silence
I wait for a word
Lying next to your frame
Girl unobserved
You change your position
And you're changing me
Casting these shadows
Where they shouldn't be

Dark Horse - Katy Perry

So you wanna play with magic
Boy, you should know what you're falling for
Baby do you dare to do this?
Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse
Are you ready for, ready for
A perfect storm, perfect storm
Cause once you’re mine, once you’re mine
There’s no going back

Call You Out - Flyleaf

I know this language of yours
I used to speak it so well.

A fire meant to be pure
Is now the fire of Hell.
It is written
Long before you.

Set Apart This Dream - Flyleaf

Close your eyes little girl
You’re a princess now
You own this world
Twirling in your twirly dress
You’re the loveliest far above the rest

You build your castles in the skies
Stars reflecting off your eyes
And angels sing on silver clouds
And no one cries screams or shouts

Light As Air - Deas Vail

The time is over for silent years of stored up fears that are holding you down.
A taken lover that you'll begin to find again. It's a hole inside your heart.

Pulling Down the Sun - Deas Vail

Children on their knees
Stolen from their homes and mothers
Lost among the weeds
They will never sing again

Welcome to the Masquerade - Thousand Foot Krutch

We've got the fire, who's got the matches
Take a look around at the sea of masks
and come one come all, welcome to the grand ball
Where the strong run for cover and the weak stand tall

I'm not one to scatter ashes
But there's some things that melt the plastic
Try and dig down deeper if you can 

Broken Wing - Thousand Foot Krutch

Here comes an opening,
She's gotta broken wing,
If you can feel the sting. 
Take care of everything, 
If she can make a scene, 
I'll show you what i mean.
She pack a loaded gun,
Set fire to anyone,
Knows how to make 'em run. 
She's down on sixth street, 
Shes's goin sixty, 
She'll show you how to breathe.

  1. Omg, yes, Evanescence! Call Me When You're Sober would make a fantastic novel. Ellie Goulding, Katy Perry, Flyleaf<3 I like Thousand Foot Krutch! The Art of Breaking used to be my favorite song by them. I need to listen to Deas Vail since I'm not familiar with them.
