You can break me
I’m a piggy bank on the floor
Watch all my spare change
Roll out the door
Ingrid Michaelson, “Spare Change”
If the elephants have past lives,
Yet are destined to always remember,
It’s no wonder how they scream,
Like you and I, they must have some temper.
Rachael Yamagata, “Elephants”
Balancing on one wounded wing,
Circling the edge of the never-ending.
The New Pornographers, “Adventures In Solitude”
Just like a star across my sky,
Just like an angel off the page,
You have appeared to my life,
Feel like I’ll never be the same,
Just like a song in my heart,
Just like oil on my hands,
Honour to love you
Corinne Bailey Rae, “Like A Star”
I don’t want anything more
Than to see your face when you open the door
You’ll make me beans on toast and a nice cup of tea
And we’ll get a Chinese and watch TV
Lily Allen, “Chinese”
Circles will not fill a square
Don’t fit together, but I don’t care.
You still have my heart,
You still have my heart.
Caitlin Crosby, “You Still Have My Heart”
You’ve got the loudest bark,
but you’ve got no bite,
It’s a funny sight to see.
Rosi Golan, “Paper Tiger”
Don’t have to wonder what they’re laughing about
Only matters if you swallow it down
I don’t care about what anyone believes
I only care about you and me
Elizabeth and The Catapult, “You and Me”
