"This life is too short/ to live it just for you..."
"I remember the days when I was so eager to satisfy you/ And be less then I was just to prove I could walk beside you/ Now that I’ve flown away I see you’ve chosen to stay behind me/ And still you curse the day I decided to stay true to myself..." --Nelly Furtado
"I’m on the outside/ I’m looking in/ I can see through you/ See your true colors..." --Staind
"They love to tell you 'stay inside the lines'/ but something's better on the other side..." --John Mayer
"Did I ask too much/More than a lot You gave me nothing/Now it's all I got We're one/But we're not the same Well we /Hurt each other Then we do it again You say/Love is a temple Love a higher law Love is a temple/Love the higher law You ask me to enter/But then you make me crawl And I can't be holding on/To what you got When all you got is hurt" -U2
"I've become so numb I can't feel you there become so tired so much more aware I'm becoming this all I want to do is be more like me and be less like you"
"I’ve put my trust in you Pushed as far as I can go And for all this There’s only one thing you should know I tried so hard And got so far But in the end It doesn’t even matter I had to fall To lose it all But in the end It doesn’t even matter" -Linkin Park
