  1. Corey Nolan & Ashley Spurling - Page That Never Turned

    Bruised and battered I've been a long time gone

    Everybody I once knew mostly leaves me alone

    Sins of my father have become my own

    Now it's more than I can hold

  2. Anson Seabra - Broken

    If you see the boy I used to be

    Could you tell him that I'd like to find him?

  3. Gabrielle Aplin - Start of Time

    There's a ghost upon the moor tonight

    Now it's in our house

    When you walked into the room just then

    It's like the sun came out

  4. Florence + the Machine - Breaking Down

    All alone

    Even when I was a child

    I've always known

    There was something to be frightened of


    I think I'm breaking down again

  5. Gabrielle Aplin - What Did You Do?

    I've never felt so lonely alone

    I didn't care 'til you came along

  6. Sleeping At Last - Two

    Sweetheart you look a little tired

    When did you last eat?

    Come in and make yourself right at home

    Stay as long as you need

  7. Sara Bareilles - Send Me the Moon

    Inches away from you

    Scared what I'll take from you darling

    I can live with your ghost

    If you say that's the most that I'll get

  8. Snow Patrol - Heal Me

    I call out your name

    It feels like a song I know so well

    And it whispers and roars like an orchestra

    You call out my name

    Like no one before it sounds like I

    Am called to a home that I never had

  9. The Cinematic Orchestra - That Home

    This is a place where I don't feel alone

    This is a place that I call my home

  10. Sleeping At Last - Three

    I finally see myself

    Unabridged and overwhelmed

    A mess of a story I'm ashamed to tell

    But I'm slowly learning how to break this spell

  11. Cam - Burning House

    I had a dream about a burning house

    You were stuck inside I couldn't get you out


    I've been sleepwalking been wandering all night

    Trying to take what's lost and broke and make it right

  12. Jeremy Ravine - Lost

    Washed up on midnight shores

    All my pieces worn and torn

    The hands of the captain

    These hands of mine

    Surrendered the ship and gave in to the tides

    Sins of my father are now sins of mine

  13. Coldplay - X&Y

    I wanna love you

    But I don't know if I can

    I know something is broken

    And I'm trying to fix it

    Trying to repair it

    Any way I can

  14. Calum Scott - You Are the Reason

    If I could turn back the clock

    I'd make sure the light defeated the dark

    I'd spend every hour of every day

    Keeping you safe

  15. Matthew West - Story of Your Life

    The question is will you do something with it

    Or spend your days lost in your regret

    This is the story of your life

    You decide

    How the rest is gonna read

    This is your chance between the lines

    To redefine what kind of legacy you leave

  16. Florence + the Machine - Seven Devils

    Holy water cannot help you now

    See I've come to burn your kingdom down

    And no rivers and no lakes can put the fire out

    I'm gonna raise the stakes

    I'm gonna smoke you out

  17. The Fray - Turn Me On

    There's a terror in the corner

    That'll make your blood run cold

    And it goes back in my bloodline

    And we tried to walk away

    But I want you as my lover

    You are where I want to stay

  18. Taylor Swift - Haunted

    Come on come on don't leave me like this

    I thought I had you figured out

    Can't breathe whenever you're gone

    Can't turn back now I'm haunted

  19. The Fray - Same As You

    You're lying there you swear you can feel them

    Reach your hand and you try to touch their skin

    But it's just you breathing

  20. P!nk - One Foot Wrong

    Am I sweating?

    Or are these tears on my face?

    Should I be hungry?

    I can't remember the last time that I ate

  21. The Fray - Hold My Hand

    This is the burden that I carry

    And it goes back a hundred years

    But all the shit I did

    I am done with it

    You've got every right to leave

    But stay with me

  22. Snow Patrol - Life on Earth

    The way home

    This is always the way home

    So you can rip that map to shreds my dear

  23. Gavin James - The Middle

    Hold me close

    And don't ever let me go

    In your heart I found a home

    Somewhere I've never been before

  24. Bright Eyes - First Day of My Life

    And so I thought I'd let you know

    These things take forever

    I especially am slow

    But I realized that I need you

    And I wondered if I could come home
