Top Ten Tuesday: Songs I Wish Were Books

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you want to join, please check out the blog!

This weeks theme is Songs I Wish Were Books! Every time I read any book, I like creating playlist for them. Now this week’s theme had me thinking of what songs would make awesome books. When I picked these songs, I kept thinking of contemporary books. Most of these songs are either a bit romantic and a bit sad. Anyways, here are my choices:


I want a lover, I don’t have to love
I want a girl, who’s too sad to give a fuck
Where is the kid with the chemicals?
I thought he said to meet him here
But I’m not sure
I got the money if you’ve got the time
You said, “It feels good”
I said, “I’ll give it a try”

Sometimes I cry so hard from pleading
So sick and tired of all the needless beating
But baby when they knock you
Down and out
Is where you oughta stay
And after all the blood that you still owe
Another dollar’s just another blow
So fix your eyes and get up
Better get up
While you can
Whoa, whoa
When you go
Would you even turn to say
“I don’t love you
Like I did

Just like a star across my sky,
Just like an angel off the page,
You have appeared to my life,
Feel like I’ll never be the same,
Just like a song in my heart,
Just like oil on my hands,
Honour to love you
Still I wonder why it is,
I don’t argue like this,
With anyone but you,
We do it all the time,
Blowing out my mind

And if you have a minute, why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know.

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need someone to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

Maybe I know, somewhere
Deep in my soul
That love never lasts
And we’ve got to find other ways
To make it alone
But keep a straight face

And I’ve always lived like this
Keeping a comfortable, distance
And up until now
I had sworn to myself that I’m content
With loneliness

Because none of it was ever worth the risk

But, you are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception

I wish i’d never fallen in love…
so deeply
I wish i’d never knew that love…
actually exists
I got your letter today
told me that you’re back in therapy
and i don’t know why but it still concerned me
But they tell me what’s the point of hurting
over something, that was nothing at all
I never used to be so gullible and vulnerable
but i guess with love nothing’s impossible
I wish i’d never fallen in love…
so deeply
I wish i’d never knew that love…
actually exists

Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
Oh no, no, no
I wish I could touch you again
I wish I could still call you friend
I’d give anything
When someone said count your blessings now
‘Fore they’re long gone
I guess I just didn’t know how
I was all wrong
They knew better, still you said forever, and ever
Who knew?
‘Cause I could never call myself yours
And if we were really meant to be
Well, then we justify destiny
It’s not that our love died, just never really bloomed
No, I can’t let go , no, I can’t let go of you
You’re holding me back without even trying to
I can’t let go, I can’t move on from the past
Without lifting a finger you’re holding me back
Baby, baby, baby
From the day I saw you
Really, really wanted to catch your eye
Somethin’ special bout’ you
I must really like you
‘Cause not a lot of guys are worth my time
Oh baby, baby, baby
It’s getting kind of crazy
‘Cause you are taking over my mind
And it feels like ooh
You don’t know my name
I swear, it feels like ooh
You don’t know my name
(Round and round and round we go, will you ever know)


If you cannot stay down
Then you do not have to pretend
Like there is no way out
I shoulda never let you in
Cause you got me face down
And don’t take this personal
But you’re the worst
You know what you’ve done to me
And although it hurts I know
I just can’t keep runnin’ away
