BREAK UP PLAYLIST!

About 8 of my close friends have had relationships end recently so I thought I’d make a break up playlist for them and perhaps you. It kinda moves through the stages of grieving but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel ☺ I tried not to make it to doom and gloom because let’s be honest sometimes break ups are the best thing that could ever happen!

So it’s a break up playlist that’s sadness wrapped in a blanket of hope with some happy socks on. I hope that makes sense ☺

Here it is for download from Dropbox or you can just play the videos

1. Bag Raiders – Not Over

Cut like a picture from a paper safely tucked away
Well thats how my heart is for you
You keep yours guarded like a palace hiding all its jewels
Thats just how hard it is for you
You found somebody yeah ok well I found somebody too
No need to put on such a show
If we should fight it out Im sure we’ll take it to the other
No one should ever have to know

Its not over til its over
Oh no but we’ll try
To make it right for just one night
We tried

Its seemed a good idea the first time that we had each other
Why don’t we just leave it at that
I know that nothing lasts forever this could change any minute
And we might never change it back
We keep on running til tomorrow closer to the future
Sometimes it seems so far away
I stared at pictures from a faded to a weaker image
You’re pushing on Im pushing play

Its not over til its over
Oh no but we’ll try
To make it right for just one night
We tried

Its not over til its over
Oh no but we’ll try
To make it right for just one night
We tried

Its not over til its over

2. The Morning Benders – Crying (Roy Orbison cover)

I was all right for a while, I could smile for a while
But I saw you last night you held my hand so tight
As you stopped to say hello
Oh, you wished me well, you couldn’t tell
That I’ve been crying over you, crying over you
And you said, so long
Left me standing all alone
Alone and crying, crying, crying, crying
It’s hard to understand but the touch of your hand
Can start me crying

I thought that I was over you
But it’s true, so true
I love you even more than I did before
But darling, what can I do
For you don’t love me and I’ll always be
Crying over you, crying over you

Yes, now you’re gone and from this moment on
I’ll be crying, crying, crying, crying
Yeah, crying, crying over you

3. Ryan O’Reilly – I know I’m not good enough

4. Bon Iver – I Can’t Make You Love Me

I’ve been so many places in my life and time
And I’ve sung a lot of songs, I’ve made some bad rhymes
I’ve acted out my life in stages, ten thousand people watching
But we’re alone now and I’m singing this song to you

I know your image of me is where I hope to be
I treated you unkindly, darling, can’t you see
There’s no one more important to me, darling, darling, can’t you just see through me?
We’re alone now and I’m singing this song to you

Tell you what, darling
Turn down the light
Turn down the bed
Go on, turn down these voices
They’re inside my head
Lay down with me
Go on, tell me no lies, no lies
Just hold me close
And don’t patronize me
Don’t patronize me

‘Cause I can’t make you love me, darling

If you don’t
You can’t make your heart feel
Something it won’t
Oh, here in the dark
In these final hours
I will lay down my heart
If you feel the power, but you won’t
Oh, you don’t

‘Cause I can’t make you love me
If you don’t
If you don’t find love, darling
Oh, on your own
‘Cause you know that I found love, darling
On my own, on my own, on my own
I found love, darling, darling
Right, right, right in the knick of time

I found love, darling
I found love, darling
I found love, darling, darling, darling, darling, darling
Love in the knick of time

5. Langhorne Slim Sings – I Love You, But Goodbye”

Why did you come?
If you can’t stay forever
How could you leave me all
alone on this Earth

Who was I before you?
I can’t remember
Why couldn’t I have been the one to
Leave here first?

I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye

No words of wisdom
Can make me feel better
Lately I’m having hard days and I
I curse the night

Maybe I’ll fly far away
And try to forget her
Maybe I’ll stay right where I am and
get on with my life

She said I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye
A bird with clipped wings can still sing
But can no longer fly

What are we here for?
Who makes the decision?
For every beginning
There must come an end

I want to thank you darling
For all that you’ve given
I want to thank you, thank you for
being my friend

And I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye

6. Metronomy – Heartbreaker

i heard she broke your heart again
so now you’re gonna come and see me
we’re back to the start again
when’s she gonna set me free
i’ve been there time and time again
the girl’s no good for me and you
she hurts me too

i heard she broke your heart again
i heard she broke your heart
well that girl’s a heartbreaker

well now that girl may have friends in the business
and great qualities that i have yet to see
but in my eyes she’s done us wrong
enough times for you to side with me

i heard she broke your heart again
i heard she broke your heart
well that girl’s a heartbreaker

heartbreaker
i’ll break her
heartbreaker
i’ll break ya

7. Gotye – Somebody that i used to know

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember
You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end
Always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over
But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done
And I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know…
But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
I used to know
That I used to know
Somebody…

8. The Antlers – I Don’t Want Love

You want to climb up the stairs
I want to push you back down
But I let you inside
So you can push me around

If I leave before you
And I walk out alone
Keep your hands to yourself
When you follow me home

I don’t want love
I don’t want love

We wake up with pounding heads
Bruised down below
I should have built better walls
Or slept in my clothes

So if I see you again
Desperate and stoned
Keep your prison locked up
And I will leave my gun at home

I don’t want love
I don’t want love

9. The Presets – If I Know You

Clever lier, fooling us all, never thought I’d work it out
How could I have known it was ever about you boy?
Now there’s nothing to say, there’s no words and we’re not talking anyhow
You must have known I was never to doubt you boy

If it was so fine, it was so good, oh you’re unbelievable
All this time I’ve been living without you boy, not your lying
It felt so good, the world don’t know, now they’ll never find out
All these years she must’ve been beside you boy

Don’t forget that I was the one that you found
And if I know you, you’ll find me someplace new
I hope I never, I hope I never have to

We’re a waste of time
And if I know you, learned long ago it’s true
I hope I never, I hope I never have to

Go and explain, explain it again, boy that this all started
Found you lying in the arms of another girl so stop your crying
Day after day, year after year, far too long and lost it
Must have thought I was nothing without you boy

Don’t forget that I was the one that you found
And if I know you, you’ll find me someplace new
I hope I never, I hope I never have to

We’re a waste of time
And if I know you, learned long ago it’s true
I hope I never, I hope I never have to

And tonight if we learn that the world’s on fire
I guess I’ll turn to you
I hope I never, I hope I never have to

I’ve failed to fight, so hard to fight
And I can find a way for you and I to go on like this
I’m always learning things the hard, hard, hardest way

‘Cause I was the one that you found
And if I know you, you’ll find me someplace new
I hope you never, I hope you never get to

Tonight, if we learn that the world’s on fire
I guess I’ll turn to you
I hope I never, I hope I never have to

10. BEN HOWARD – KEEP YOUR HEAD UP

I spent my time watchin’ the spaces that had grown between us.
And I cut my mind on second best or the scars that come with the greeness.
And I gave my eyes to the bottom, still the seabed wouldn’t let me in,
And I tried my best to embrace the darkness in which I swim.
Oh the darkness in which I swim.

Now walkin’ back down this mountain
With the strength of a turnin’ tide
Oh the wind so soft at my skin,
The sun so hot upon my side.
Oh lookin’ out at this happiness,
I searched for between the sheets.
Oh feelin’ blind to realize,
All I was searchin’ for was me.
Ooh all I was searchin’ for was me.

Keep your head up, keep your heart strong.
No, no, no, no.
Keep your mind set, keep your hair long.
Oh my darlin’ keep your head up, keep your heart strong.
Oh no no, keep your mind set in your ways, keep your hair,
Keep your hair long.
‘Cause I’ll always remember you the same,
Oh eyes like wildflowers, with your demons of change.

I saw a friend of mine the other day,
Courtesy of lyricshall.com
And he told me that my eyes were gleamin’.
Oh I said I had been away, and he knew,
Oh he knew the depths I was meanin’.
And it felt so good to see his face,
The comfort invested in my soul.
Oh to feel the warmth of his smile,
When he said “I’m happy to have you home.
Ooh I’m happy to have you home.”

And I showed my body to the sea again,
And I laughed at her for bein’ so cruel.
And I left these broken bottles, and empty corridors.
And I walked right on through.
And I never, I never dream of you.
Oh honey I never, I never dream of you.

Yeah, keep your head up, keep your heart strong.
Oh, no, no, no, no.
Keep your mind set, keep you hair long.
Oh my my darlin’, keep your head up, keep you heart strong.
No no no, keep your mind set in your ways,
Keep your hair, keep your hair long.
‘Cause I’ll always remember you the same.
Oh eyes are wild flowers within demons of change.

May you find happiness there,
May all your hopes all turn out right.
Ooh may you find happiness there,
May you find warmth in the middle of the night.

11. Summer Camp – Better Off Without You

12. Cake – I Will Survive

At first I was afraid, I was petrified
I kept thinkin’ I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights just thinking how you’ve done me wrong
And I grew strong, I learned how to get along

And so you’re back from outer space,
I just walked in to find you here with that, that look upon your face
I should have changed my fucking lock
I would have made you leave your key
If I’d have known for just one second you’d be back to bother me.

Oh now go, walk out the door
Just turn around now, you’re not welcome anymore.
Weren’t you the one who tried to break me with desire?
Did you think I’d crumble? Did you think I’d lay down and die?

Oh not I, I will survive
Yeah, as long as I know how to love, I know I’ll be alive.
I’ve got all my life to live,
I’ve got all my love to give,
I will survive

I will survive
Yeah, yeah…

(SOLO)

It took all the strength I had just not to fall apart,
I’m tryin’ hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
And I spent oh so many nights just feelin’ sorry for myself,
I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high.

And you’ll see me with somebody new
I’m not that stupid little person still in love with you.
And so you thought you’d just drop by and you expect me to be free,
But now I’m saving all my lovin’ for someone who’s lovin’ me,

Oh now go, walk out the door.
Just turn around now, you’re not welcome anymore.
Weren’t you the one who tried to break me with desire?
Did you think I’d crumble? Did you think I’d lay down and die?

Oh not I, I will survive
Yeah, as long as I know how to love I know I’ll be alive,
I’ve got all my life to live,
I’ve got all my love to give,
I will survive

I will survive
Yeah, yeah…

Feist – How Come You Never Go There

New Feist is ever so pretty.

LYRICS:

how come you never go there
how come I’m so alone there

how come you never go there
how come I’m so alone there
I went up to your window
lightly banging on the cymbals
a writ into the night
came storming to your house

my horse had worked the fields too long
my bear had lost its innate calm
it’s true enough for not at peace
but peace is never where the sea sees

our love is not the light it was
when I walk inside the dark I’m calm
where we look for where it went
it’s only echoes in the melody

how come you never go there
how come I’m so alone there

how come you never go there
how come I’m so alone there
we waste time on blame I wreak revenge
we used energy and foojections (?)
we live in proof, we gotta let go
and stop looking through the lay-low

we carry on as if the time missed through
you carry on as if i don’t love you
and so we find the way to lie
to cover hard I have a doubt

the room is full of eyes and empty
like your letters never sent me
words like a lasso
you’re an instrumental tune

how come you never go there
how come I’m so alone there

how come you never go there
how come I’m so alone there

Dark Dark Dark – Daydreaming

New favourite song! It makes me happy and think of row boats on Zoo Lake and drinking ice cold Castle Light draught in the sun.

I’m gonna have to make a mix tape for any readers I have because I’ve been listening to the most amazing music lately. Thanks to someone uber cool I know 🙂

LYRICS:

Think of a place I would go,
I’m daydreamin’,
Where the sycamore grow,
I’m daydreamin’,
And oh if you knew what it meant to me,
Where the air was so clear,
Oh if you knew what it meant to me,
Anywhere but here.

Oh now look to the east,
Great mountains remember me,
Oh I wound around you for miles,
I sat down right there and stretched my bones.
And oh if you knew what it meant to me,
Oh if you knew what it meant to me,
Oh if you knew what it meant to me,
You would see, too.

Oh the unspeakable things,
It’s land I can see for miles,
With only the wind whispering,
Land I can see for miles,
With only the wind whispering,
Oh land I can see for miles,
With only the wind whispering,
Oh I’d run as fast as I can
Land I can see for miles
Oh I’m searching,
With only the wind whispering,
Oh if you knew what it meant to me,
Oh if you knew what it meant to me,
Oh if you knew what it meant to me,
You would see, too.

Oh the unspeakable things,
Oh the unspeakable things,
Oh the unspeakable things,
Oh the unspeakable things.
