Paramore — “Rose-Colored Boy

“You say, ‘We gotta look on the bright side’/

But boy, you ain't ever seen my mind”

All Time Low — “A Daydream Away

“I would drink a little too much/
You'd offer me a ride/
And I would offer you a T-shirt/
And you would stay another night”

Knuckle Puck — “Pretense

“How dare you guilt me for not sticking around/
As if you ever did for me?/
I’ll leave you in the dark with a broken flashlight/
You left me with a choice and a pretense”

The way you twitch in your sleep/
Your smile, your straight teeth/
And the scars along on your cheeks”

And more about how I ruin everything I think could be good news”

Up there all alone/
You miss the atmosphere/
The stars are now your home”
