LOVE SONGS. Ah, the rush of having a new crush. The agony of finding out he only liked girls with high-pitched, annoying laughs, bad highlights and—wait, where was I? Oh, right: young love. Sometimes it can be heartbreakingly terrible. (See previous lyrics.) But other times, it can be pretty great—maybe even mixtape-worthy—and these songs captured those moments perfectly.

Dashboard Confessional - A Mark. A Mission. A Brand. A Scar7. “My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me/So won't you kill me?/So I die happy.” Dashboard Confessional – “Hands Down”

Death Cab For Cutie - Plans8. “If heaven and hell decide/That they both are satisfied/Illuminate the ‘No’s’ on their vacancy signs/If there's no one beside you/When your soul embarks/Then I'll follow you into the dark.” Death Cab For Cutie – “I’ll Follow You Into The Dark”

Say Anything - ...Is A Real Boy9. “You’re what keeps me believing the world’s not gone dead/Strength in my bones put the words in my head/When they pour out paper it’s all for you/Cause that’s what you do.” Say Anything – “I Want To Know Your Plans”

The Starting Line - Say It Like You Mean It10. “Sing this song for me/Tell me how you'll never leave my side/And I'll meet you at 7/I miss you already, goodbye to you/The last goodbye, I'll ever say to you.” The Starting Line – “Cheek To Cheek”
