Just Give Me A Reason – P!nk ft Nate Ruess

Fun in Pink. Two great voices doing what they do best – telling sad stories of everyday life.

Lyrics:

Right from the start
You were a thief
You stole my heart
And I your willing victim
I let you see the parts of me
That weren’t all that pretty
And with every touch you fixed them

Now you’ve been talking in your sleep, oh, oh
Things you never say to me, oh, oh
Tell me that you’ve had enough
Of our love, our love

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit’s enough
Just a second we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
It’s in the stars
It’s been written in the scars on our hearts
We’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

I’m sorry I don’t understand
Where all of this is coming from
I thought that we were fine
(Oh, we had everything)
Your head is running wild again
My dear we still have everythin’
And it’s all in your mind
(Yeah, but this is happenin’)

You’ve been havin’ real bad dreams, oh, oh
You used to lie so close to me, oh, oh
There’s nothing more than empty sheets
Between our love, our love
Oh, our love, our love

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit’s enough
Just a second we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
I never stopped
You’re still written in the scars on my heart
You’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Oh, tear ducts and rust
I’ll fix it for us
We’re collecting dust
But our love’s enough
You’re holding it in
You’re pouring a drink
No nothing is as bad as it seems
We’ll come clean

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit’s enough
Just a second we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
It’s in the stars
It’s been written in the scars on our hearts
That we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit’s enough
Just a second we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
It’s in the stars
It’s been written in the scars on our hearts
That we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Oh, we can learn to love again
Oh, we can learn to love again
Oh, oh, that we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Say Something – A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera

Another great duet coming out of nowhere. But it’s Christina, after all. Same great voice as always.

Lyrics:

Say something, I’m giving up on you.
I’ll be the one, if you want me to.
Anywhere I would’ve followed you.
Say something, I’m giving up on you.

And I am feeling so small.
It was over my head
I know nothing at all.

And I will stumble and fall.
I’m still learning to love
Just starting to crawl.

Say something, I’m giving up on you.
I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you.
Anywhere I would’ve followed you.
Say something, I’m giving up on you.

And I will swallow my pride.
You’re the one that I love
And I’m saying goodbye.

Say something, I’m giving up on you.
And I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you.
And anywhere I would’ve followed you. Oh-oh-oh-oh
Say something, I’m giving up on you.

Say something, I’m giving up on you.
Say something…

Love Me Again – John Newman

From the land of the Queen, fog, and rock music, with love. Again and again.

Lyrics:

Know I’ve done wrong,
I left your heart torn
Is that what devils do?
Took you so low,
Where only fools go
I shook the angel in you

Now I’m rising from the ground
Rising up to you
Filled with all the strength I found
There’s nothing I can’t do!

[Chorus:]
I need to know now, know now
Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now
Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now
Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now
Can you love me again?

Can you love me again?

It’s unforgivable,
I stole and burnt your soul
Is that what demons do?
They rule the worst of me
Destroy everything,
They bring down angels like you

Now I’m rising from the ground
Rising up to you
Filled with all the strength I found
There’s nothing I can’t do!

[Chorus:]
I need to know now, know now
Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now
Can you love me again?

Can you love me again?

I told you once again,
Do this again, do this again oh no
I told you once again,
Do this again, do this again oh no

[Chorus:]
I need to know now, know now
Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now
Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now
Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now
Oh, oh (can you love me again?)
Can you love me again?
Can you love me again?

Straight Up – Paula Abdul

Paula, showing her dance moves, as well as her beautiful voice. Much more talent that 99.99% of all American Idol wannabes.

Lyrics:

Lost in a dream
Don’t know which way to go
If you are all that you seem
Then baby I’m movin’ way too slow

I’ve been a fool before
Wouldn’t like to get my love caught
In the slammin’ door
How about some information–please

Straight up now tell me
Do you really want to love me forever oh oh oh
Or am I caught in a hit and run

Straight up now tell me
Is it gonna be you and me together oh oh oh
Are you just having fun

Time’s standing still
Waiting for some small clue
I keep getting chills
When I think your love is true

I’ve been a fool before
Wouldn’t like to get my love caught
In the slammin’ door
How about some information–please

Straight up now tell me
Do you really want to love me forever oh oh oh
Or am I caught in a hit and run
Straight up now tell me
Is it gonna be you and me together oh oh oh
Are you just having fun

You are so hard to read
You play hide and seek
With your true intentions
If you’re only playing games
I’ll just have to say–bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye

Do do you love me
Do do you love me
Do do you love me
Do do you love me ?

I’ve been a fool before
Wouldn’t like to get my love caught
In the slammin’ door
Are you more than hot for me
Or am I a page in your history-book

I don’t mean to make demands
But the word and the deed go hand in hand
How about some information–please

I’ve been a fool before
Wouldn’t like to get my love caught
In the slammin’ door
Are you more than hot for me
Or am I a page in your history-book
I don’t mean to make demands
But the word and the deed go hand in hand
How about some information–please

Tubthumping – Chumbawamba

That’s it. We’re done with one hit wonders, for now. I guess they stopped making songs because nobody could pronounce the name of the band, or of the song. Maybe after a whiskey drink and a vodka drink you get better at it. Pissing the night away, that is.

Lyrics:

We’ll be singing
When we’re winning
We’ll be singing

I get knocked down
But I get up again
You’re never gonna keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You’re never gonna keep me down

Pissing the night away
Pissing the night away
He drinks a whiskey drink
He drinks a vodka drink
He drinks a lager drink
He drinks a cider drink
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the good times
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the better times

Oh, Danny Boy
Danny Boy

I get knocked down
But I get up again
You’re never gonna keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You’re never gonna keep me down

Pissing the night away
Pissing the night away
He drinks a whiskey drink
He drinks a vodka drink
He drinks a lager drink
He drinks a cider drink
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the good times
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the better times

Don’t cry for me
Next door neighbor

I get knocked down
But I get up again
You’re never gonna keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You’re never gonna keep me down

I get knocked down
(We’ll be singing)
But I get up again
You’re never going to keep me down
(When we’re winning)
I get knocked down
(We’ll be singing)
But I get up again
You’re never going to keep me down
(Ooh, ooh, ooh)
