Lyrics: “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith

Guess it’s true, I’m not good at a one-night stand
But I still need love ’cause I’m just a man
These nights never seem to go to plan
I don’t want you to leave, will you hold my hand?

Oh, won’t you stay with me?
‘Cause you’re all I need
This ain’t love it’s clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Why am I so emotional?
No it’s not a good look, gain some self control
And deep down I know this never works
But you can lay with me so it doesn’t hurt

Oh, won’t you stay with me?
‘Cause you’re all I need
This ain’t love it’s clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Oh, won’t you stay with me?
‘Cause you’re all I need
This ain’t love it’s clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Lyrics: “Dancing in the Dark” by Bruce Springsteen

I get up in the evening and I ain’t got nothing to say
I come home in the morning, I go to bed feelin’ the same way
I ain’t nothing but tired, man I’m just tired and bored with myself
Hey there baby, I could use just a little help

You can’t start a fire, you can’t start a fire without a spark
This gun’s for hire even if we’re just dancing in the dark

Message just keep getting clearer, radio’s on and I’m moving ’round my place
I check my look in the mirror, I wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face
Man, I ain’t getting nowhere, I’m just living in a dump like this
There’s something happening somewhere, baby I just know that there is

You can’t start a fire, you can’t start a fire without a spark
This gun’s for hire even if we’re just dancing in the dark

You sit around getting older, there’s a joke here somewhere and it’s on me
I’ll shake this world off my shoulders, come on baby this laugh’s on me

Stay on the streets of this town and they’ll be carving you up alright
They say you gotta stay hungry, hey baby, I’m just about starving tonight
I’m dying for some action, I’m sick of sitting ’round here tryin’ to write this book
I need a love reaction, come on now baby gimme just one look

You can’t start a fire sitting ’round cryin’ over a broken heart
This gun’s for hire even if we’re just dancing in the dark
You can’t start a fire worryin’ about your little world fallin’ apart
This gun’s for hire even if we’re just dancing in the dark
Even if we’re just dancing in the dark

Lyrics: “Creep” by Radiohead

When you were here before
Couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You’re so fucking special

But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here

I don’t care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice when I’m not around
You’re so fucking special
I wish I was special

But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here

She’s running out the door, She’s running out
She runs runs runs runs..

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You’re so fucking special
I wish I was special

But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here , I don’t belong here

Lyrics:

He ran up the path with blood on his hands
And a fear I’d never seen
He stops for a breath and a backwards glance
What could this have been

Wolves wolves don’t howl at my door
I don’t want you here anymore
Wolves wolves don’t howl at my door
Aaaaaooohhh!

I saw their master and he did not care
Sent me on my way
They’re running wild out here
Still we choose to stay

Wolves wolves don’t howl at my door
I don’t want you here anymore
Wolves wolves don’t howl at my door
Aaaaaooohhh!

We don’t go back to that neck of the woods
Try to stay off that track
Bow my head and pull up the hood
Whenever I must go back

Wolves wolves don’t howl at my door
I don’t want you here anymore
Wolves wolves don’t howl at my door
Aaaaaooohhh!
