By the way, the title of this mix comes from Carl Sandburg's poem Cool Tombs, which isn't about love, but, well, isn't heartbreak a little bit like death?
OH WOW THAT SOUNDED LESS EMO IN MY HEAD.
1. August Moon, Sara Bareilles
I'm ten feet from your door
My heart beats, not any more
I'm empty and not yours.
2. Be Mine!, Robyn
'Cause you never were
And you never will be mine.
3. I'm Not That Girl, Idina Menzel
Don't wish, don't start
Wishing only wounds the heart
I wasn't born for the rose and the pearl
There's a girl I know, he loves her so...
4. Insensitive, Jann Arden
How do you numb your skin
After the warmest touch?
How do you slow your blood
After the body rush?
How do you free your soul
After you've found a friend?
How do you teach your heart it's a crime to fall in love again?
5. Take a Bow, Madonna
Make them laugh
It comes so easy
When you get to the part where you're breaking my heart.
6. You Could Be Happy, Snow Patrol
Is it too late to remind you how we were?
But not our last days of silent, screaming blur
Most of what I remember makes me sure
I should have stopped you from walking out the door
You could be happy, I hope you are
You made me happier than I'd been by far.
7. Someday We'll Know, The New Radicals
I bought a ticket to the end of the rainbow
I watch the stars crash in the sea
If I could ask God just one question:
"Why aren't you here with me tonight?"
8. Breakeven, The Script
They say bad things happen for a reason
But no wise words gonna stop me bleeding
'Cause she's moved on while I'm still grieving
And when a heart breaks, no, it don't break even.
9. Kissing a Fool, George Michael
You are far
When I could have been your star
You listened to people
Who scared you to death, and from my heart
Strange that I was wrong enough
To think you'd love me too.
10. I Want You So Bad I Can't Breathe, OK Go
I want you, yeah, I want you
I want you, yeah, I want you bad
So bad I can't think straight
So bad all my bones shake
So bad I can't breathe.
11. Thinking About You, Norah Jones
Here I am, looking for signs to lead me
You hold my hand, but do you really need me?
I guess it's time for me to let you go
But I'll be thinking about you.
12. Don't Take Your Love from Me, Frank Sinatra
Would you take the wings from birds
So that they can't fly?
Would you take the ocean's roar
And leave just a sigh?
Oh, this your heart won't let you do
This is what I beg of you:
Please don't take your love from me.
13. Indiana, Jon McLaughlin
The trick of love is to never let it find you
It's easy to get over missing out
I know the how and when but now and then she's all I think about.
14. Someone Like You, Adele
I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it
I hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me, it isn't over yet.
15. Breathe Again, Sara Bareilles
Open up next to you
And my secrets become your truth
And the distance between that was sheltering me
Comes in full view
Hang my head, break my heart
Built from all I have torn apart
And my burden to bear
Is a love I can't carry anymore.
