Mix Tape by Brand New
I still think this is one of my favorite songs. I got a twenty-dollar bill that says no one’s ever seen you without makeup. You’re always made up. And I’m sick of your tattoos, and the way you always criticize the Smiths… and Morrissey. And I know that you’re a sucker for anything acoustic. But when I say let’s keep in touch, I really mean I wish that...

Bring It On - The Gaslight Anthem
My Queen of the Bronx Blue eyes and spitfire I saw you walking back and forth About another boy Thinking that you may want to leave So give me the fevers that just won’t break And give me the children you don’t wanna raise And tell me about the cool he sings you in those songs If it’s better than my love Then bring it on And take it back out to the streets Where you know you...
