The Contenders

11 Books and Letters - The Morning Light

I'm falling in and out of love,
Finally stopping what we were made of.
"Oh, you're done. "
By summer I'll have you on your knees,
Come August and you'll lie right through your teeth.
And it's oh so typical but what I need.

I'm writing books through letters,
That I'm sure you'll never read.
I'm searching through a postcard,
To find any trace of me.
But you've traded thoughts of me,
For this new life that comes cheap.
And I can only pray it falls beneath your feet. - rosebabe57

12 I Don't Wanna Be in Love - Good Charlotte

He calls her up
He�s trippin on the phone now
He doesn�t want her out there
And alone now
He knows she�s movin it
Knows she�s using it
Now he�s losing it
She don�t care

Everybody put up your hands
Say I don�t wanna be in love
I don�t wanna be in love
Feel the beat now
If you�ve got nothing left
Say I don�t wanna be in love
I don�t wanna be in love - rosebabe57

She made the music come to life
She moved her body like a butcher knife
Chopping up every guy in sight

She's a natural, natural disaster
She's so sexy
I had to have her
She's a natural, natural disaster

26 Until the Day I Die - Story of the Year

Just... How. How isn't this song in the top 5?

"As years go by
I race the clock with you
But if you died right now
You know that I'd die too
I'd die too

You remind me of the times
When I knew who I was (I was)
But still the second hand will catch us
Like it always does

We'll make the same mistakes
I'll take the fall for you
I hope you need this now
Cause I know I still do

Should I bite my tongue?
Until blood soaks my shirt
We'll never fall apart
Tell me why this hurts so much"

I'd post the lyrics and a link if I could.

27 Somewhere Only We Know - Keane
28 So Contagious - Acceptance

Could this be out of line? (Could this be out of line? )
To say you're the only one breaking me down like this
You're the only one I would take a shot on
Keep me hanging on so contagiously

Ooh, when I'm around you I'm predictable
Cause I believe in loving you at first sight
I know it's crazy but I'm hoping to..
To take a hold of you - rosebabe57

Go listen to it. So perfect.
