01. Fight & Bleed, Bo Baskoro
Don’t let me go yet. You won’t have to run, I ain’t gonna be the one to let you down. We beat the odds and ruled over this town, then broke the chains that held both ours hearts down. You know me more than any through your own eyes. I’ll fight for you, I’ll fight until your darkest nights.
02. This Won’t End Quietly, We The Committee
Fighter, fighter, you told me we were fighters, fighters. Lovers, lovers, we ended just as lovers. Let the night get away to somewhere better than here, let the night get away. We always said we would, as time led us apart. Our fate was never meant, forever. This won’t end quietly, this will be beautiful, my love.
03. Bow And Arrow, Reuben And The Dark
You are a bow and arrow, a broken guitar. While the rain, water washes away who you are. We go over the mountains and under the stars… Won’t you hold my hands over my heart? I want you to close my eyes when it grows dark.
04. Run, Daughter
I don’t know where he’s going, I don’t know where he’s been, but he is restless at night, he has horrible dreams. So we lay in the dark ‘cause we’ve got nothing to say, just the beating of hearts like two drums in the grey. I don’t know what we’re doing, I don’t know what we’ve done. But the fire is coming, so I think we should run… And I won’t tell my mother, it’s better she don’t know. And he won’t tell his folks ‘cause they’re already ghosts. So we’ll just keep each other as safe as we can until we reach the border, until we make our plan to run.
05. I’ll Keep You Safe, Sleeping At Last
I’ll keep you safe. Try hard to concentrate, hold out your hand. Can you feel the weight of it? The whole world at your fingertips. Don’t be be afraid. Our mistakes they were bound to be made, but I promise you I’ll keep you safe… Darkness will be rewritten into a work of fiction, you’ll see. As you pull on every ribbon you’ll find every secret it keeps. The sound of the branches breaking under your feet, the smell of the falling and burning leaves, the bitterness of winter or the sweetness of spring. You are an artist and your heart is your masterpiece.
06. I Will Wait, Julia Harriman
Well, I came home like a stone and I fell heavy into your arms. These days of dust which we’ve known will blow away with this new sun. But I’ll kneel down, wait for now. And I’ll kneel down, know my ground. And I will wait, I will wait for you… Now I’ll be bold as well as strong and use my head alongside my heart. So tame my flesh and fix my eyes. A tethered mind freed from the lies.
07. Heroes, Mika
It’s your blood on me and my blood on you, but to make you bleed is the only thing I wouldn’t do. And you know heroes aren’t meant to survive. So much harder to love when alive. Walk with the devil in your head, you would think you were better off dead… Fire, fire, fire. Where can you go? We fight, we earn, we never learn, and through it all the hero falls.
08. Wasting My Young Years, London Grammar
I’m wasting my young years, it doesn’t matter here. I’m chasing old ideas, it doesn’t matter here. Baby, we are, we are. Maybe I’m wasting my young years. Don’t you know that it’s only fear. I wouldn’t worry, you have all your life. I’ve heard it takes some time to get it right… I don’t know what you are. Don’t leave me hanging on.
09. Somebody To Die For, Hurts
I could drag you from the ocean, I could pull you from the fire. And, when you’re standing in the shadows, I could open up the sky. And I could give you my devotion until the end of time and you will never be forgotten with me by your side… And I don’t need this life, I just need this life, I just need somebody to die for. Somebody to cry for.
10. In Your Eyes, Banks
Love, I don’t like to see so much pain, so much wasted. And this moment keeps slipping away. I get so tired of working so hard for my survival. I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive… In your eyes, the light the heat. I am complete. I see the doorway to a thousand churches. The resolution of all the fruitless searches. I see the light and the heat. I want to be that complete, I want to touch the light the heat I see in your eyes.
