Skylar Grey-Love the Way You Lie

On the first page of our story
The future seemed so bright
Then this thing turned out so evil
I don't know why I'm still surprised
Even angels have their wicked schemes
And you take that to new extremes
But you'll always be my hero
Even though you've lost your mind
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
Well that's alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
Well that's alright because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
Now there's gravel in our voices
Glasses shattered from the fight
In this tug of war you always win
Even when I'm right
'Cause you feed me fables from your head
With violent words and empty threats
And it's sick that all these battles
Are what keeps me satisfied
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
Well that's alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
Well that's alright because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
So maybe I'm a masochist
I try to run but I don't wanna ever leave
Till the walls are going up
In smoke with all our memories
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
Well that's alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
Well that's alright because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

If "The Only Road I've Ever Known" had end credits, this would so be playing.

Ashtar Command- Deadman's Gun

Your hands upon
A deadman's gun, and you're
Lookin' down the sights
Your heart is warm
And the seams are torn, and they've
Given you a reason to fight
And you're not gonna take
What they've got to give
And you're not gonna let 'em take your will to live
Because they've taken enough
And you've given them all you can give
And luck won't save them tonight
They've given you a reason to fight
And all the storms you've been chasin'
About to rain down tonight
And all that pain you've been facin'
About to come into the light
Your hands upon
A deadman's gun, and you're
Lookin' down the sights
Your heart is warm
And the seams are torn, and they've
Given you a reason to fight
And you're not gonna take
What they've got to give
And you're not gonna let 'em take your will to live
Because they've taken enough
And you've given them all you can give
And luck won't save them tonight
They've given you a reason to fight
And all the storms you've been chasin'
About to rain down tonight
And all that pain you've been facin'
About to come into the light

Ramin Djawadi- Paint It, Black
This cover is just outstanding and is serving as great inspiration for writing certain scenes.

Shirley Manson-Samon and Delilah

If I had my way, if I had my way, if I had my way
Id burn this whole building down

Delilah was a woman, she was fine and fair
She had good looks, and coal black hair
Delilah, she can ground on Samsons mind
When he saw this woman, she looked so fine
Delilah she climbed up on Samsons knee
Said tell me where your strength lies,
If you please

Then she spoke so kind and she talked so fair
Til Samson said, Delilah, cut off my hair!

If I had my way, if I had my way, if I had my way
Id burn this whole building down

People read about old Samson
As far back as his birth
He was the strongest man that ever lived on earth

One day while Samsons walking, walking along,
Looked down on the ground and saw an old jawbone

And he stretched out his arms
and his chains broke like thread
When he got to move, ten thousand men was dead

If I had my way, if I had my way, if I had my way
Id burn this whole building down
If I had my way, if I had my way,if I had my way,
Id burn this whole building down

Well, Samson and the lion got entwined in a fight
And Samson he jumped up
and took on the lions might

You wont know just how a lion kill a man with his paws
Well, Samson got his hands up round that lions jaws

And he ripped that beast and he killed him dead
And the bees laid honey in the lions' head

If I had my way, if I had my way, if I had my way,
Id burn this whole building down
If I had my way, if I had my way, if I had my way,
I would burn this building down

If I had my way, if I had my way, if I had my way,
Id burn this whole building down

Mumford And Sons-Dustbowl Dance

The young man stands on the edge of his porch
The days were short and the father was gone
There was no one in the town and no one in the field
This dusty barren land had given all it could yield

I've been kicked off my land at the age of sixteen
And I have no idea where else my heart could have been
I placed all my trust at the foot of this hill
And now I am sure my heart can never be still
So collect your courage and collect your horse
And pray you never feel this same kind of remorse

Seal my heart and break my pride
I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide
Align my heart, my body, my mind
To face what I've done and do my time

Well you are my accuser, now look in my face
Your oppression reeks of your greed and disgrace
So one man has and another has not
How can you love what it is you have got
When you took it all from the weak hands of the poor?
Liars and thieves you know not what is in store

There will come a time I will look in your eye
You will pray to the God that you always denied
Then I'll go out back and I'll get my gun
I'll say, "You haven't met me, I am the only son"

Seal my heart and break my pride
I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide
Align my heart, my body, my mind
To face what I've done and do my time

Seal my heart and break my pride
I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide
Align my heart, my body, my mind
To face what I've done and do my time

Well yes sir, yes sir, yes it was me
I know what I've done, 'cause I know what I've seen

I went out back and I got my gun
I said, "You haven't met me, I am the only son"

"You can run on for a long time.  But sooner or later, God'll cut you down."

Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper

Tell me somethin' girl
Are you happy in this modern world?
Or do you need more?
Is there somethin' else you're searchin' for?

I'm falling
In all the good times I find myself longin' for change
And in the bad times I fear myself


Tell me something boy
Aren't you tired tryin' to fill that void?
Or do you need more?
Ain't it hard keeping it so hardcore?

I'm falling
In all the good times I find myself longing for change
And in the bad times I fear myself

I'm off the deep end, watch as I dive in
I'll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface, where they can't hurt us
We're far from the shallow now

In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
We're far from the shallow now

I'm off the deep end, watch as I dive in
I'll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface, where they can't hurt us
We're far from the shallow now

In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
We're far from the shallow now

"You can run on for a long time.  But sooner or later, God'll cut you down."

Bradley Cooper- Maybe It’s Time

Maybe it's time to let the old ways die
Maybe it's time to let the old ways die
It takes a lot to change a man
Hell, it takes a lot to try
Maybe it's time to let the old ways die

Nobody knows what waits for the dead
Nobody knows what waits for the dead
Some folks just believe in the things they've heard and the things they read
Nobody knows what awaits for the dead

I'm glad I can't go back to where I came from
I'm glad those days are gone, gone for good
But if I could take spirits from my past and bring 'em here
You know I would
Know I would

Nobody speaks to God these days
Nobody speaks to God these days
I'd like to think he's lookin' down and laughin' at our ways
Nobody speaks to God these days

When I was a child, they tried to fool me
Said the worldly man was lost and that a Hell was real
Well I've seen Hell in Reno
And this world's one big old Catherine wheel
Spinnin' steel

Maybe it's time to let the old ways die
Maybe it's time to let the old ways die
It takes a lot to change your plans
And a train to change your mind
Maybe it's time to let the old ways die
Oh, maybe it's time to let the old ways die

Most of the last update was written to this.  Love this music!
