list of Good Lyrics:
"I'm struggling to exist with you, and without you"

Bishops Knife Trick - Fall Out Boy
"I'm just the man on the balcony singing "nobody will ever remember me"
rejoice, rejoice and fall to your knees"

From Now On We Are Enemies - Fall Out Boy
P much this whole song lmao I quote "I only want what I can't have!" all the fucking TIME
"And I saw God cry in the reflection of my enemies
And all the lovers with no time for me
And all of the mothers raise their babies to stay away from me"

Golden - Fall Out Boy
a favorite of mine, I related a LOT to having a mental illness most people fear. I know Pete has bipolar disorder and that's v similar to borderline so I really feel him on this one lmao
(It's also an EXCELLENT Mona song @_ktsimpson)
"this ain't for the best
my reputation's never been worse, so
you must like me for me"

Delicate - Taylor Swift
I really like the despair of realizing that someone LIKES you and that's dangerous because you're not sure if you're willing to go through this again

I like this song a lot actually. Her hesitancy to do this again but acknowledging she can't deny her heart is Relatable lmao
(this is a similar theme in Dancing With Our Hands Tied too, I fucking love it)
"hit em right between the eyes, hit em right between the eyes"

You're Gonna Go Far, Kid - The Offspring
it's the irony of knowing what you're doing is wrong and being congratulated for it lmao

crushing, because you don't want to but you don't feel like you have a choice, I really love the turmoil of it. this is such a character song
"princes wait there in the world, it's true
princes, yes, but wolves and humans too"


"stay with me, the world is dark and wild
stay a child while you can be a child"

Stay With Me - Into the Woods soundtrack
ok first of all I LOVE Into the Woods, I saw it young and it taught me--this song in particular--that parents aren't perfect, and they're learning and growing like people do because they're people too

this was a VERY impactful song for me, seeing that the witch really loves
Rapunzel and did bad things in the name of that love and it was misguided but well-intentioned and that's really fascinating to me
also "wolves and humans too" is HUGE bc ordinarily the wolf would be a metaphor for a bad human and this is saying to be cautious of all humans because everyone, EVERYONE, has then potential to hurt you
the song that came on is Can't Handle Me and I dunno if it has "good lyrics" but it IS a bop and honestly Step Up 3 had a fantastic soundtrack so uhh fight me
(still salty Trey Songz's "Already Taken" isn't on Spotify, get on that Tremaine)
Carrie Underwood's "Some Hearts" which I associate with Kingdom Hearts bc I saw an amv to it once and now I literally can't not think of it lmaoooo

also of Lucky for... obvious reasons
spent a dumb long time looking for the original amv and couldn't find it I'm Very Sad, anyway back to threading
"so tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin"

Somewhere Only We Know - Keane
any time someone mentions being tired, especially in the world-weary sense, I Feel That

also this song feels like a memory I've been trying to recall my whole life and it's on the tip of my tongue and I just can't... reach it.
ah, another FOB song

we went a whole like six songs without one
I used to hate this song, which is ironic bc Caleb likes it (I'm pretty sure it's the ONLY fob he likes (liked?) so that's saying something)

but, y'know. it's lit. and I love all of SRAR soooo
"a constellation of tears on your lashes
burn everything you love then burn the ashes
in the end, everything collides
my childhood spat back out the monster that you see"

My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up) - Fall Out Boy

BIG 👏🏽 FUCKIN 👏🏽 MOOD 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
Save Rock and Roll was my (proper) introduction to FOB but I didn't fall into it until... 2017? I think? just at the start of the MANIA era. but yeah it's my favorite album, my favorite era, I wish I'd been a fan back then I would've lost my whole ass mind
ahh, Bishops Knife Trick again but in music box form, no words obviously but such a... lullaby 😭😭 @_ktsimpson
"if home is where the heart is then we're all just fucked
I can't remember, I can't remember
and I want it so bad I shoot the sunshine into my veins
I can't remember the good old days"

27 - Fall Out Boy
listen I'm sorry these are all FOB but I warned you ahead of time ok

also Pete was literally like an English major for POETRY what do you want from me
anyway 27, this whole song. just, all of it.

"my mind is a safe, and if I keep it then we all get rich
my body is an orphanage, we take everyone in"

also, the title is a reference to the 27 Club, or the group of famous people who killed themselves at the age of 27.

this song is angry and a big scream of why the FUCK we have to suffer just because our brains are broken and it's a big ass mood

that first line--this is pre-hiatus Pete, who felt a lot that if he treated his head he'd lose all that made FOB special, which are his words
(and yes FOB is more than that of course it is but for Pete this is all he felt like he could contribute, and he hated that)

luckily he's a lot better now and he's still the poet he ever was, he's just happier and I'm happy for him. but this song is p much their rock bottom.
"say there's no future for us as a pair
and though I may know, I don't care"

As Long As You're Mine - Wicked soundtrack
I love this song wtf, and yeah I'm always gonna love the quiet disbelief that comes from understanding someone else's love for you

also queer anthem, bye,,
"sorry if you're starstruck
blame it on the stardust
I know that I'm perfect
even tho I'm fucked up"

Hymn - Kesha
hearing this song shifted my ENTIRE worldview on self love

holy shit

that line made it click and I understood, all of a sudden, and it has a special place in my heart for that
"oh it must've been love
but it's over now"

It Must Have Been Love - Roxette
there is SOMETHING CRUSHING about only realizing what you had after you lost it lmao

"it's over now" is a motif in my own poetry too bc uhh I love it so much, also this song slaps
"when does "you'll get over it" begin?"

When Can I See You - Babyface
ah heartbreak

this song is so wistful bc he knows it's over but he's hurting and he doesn't know how to stop it

it's a rhetorical question bc he'll never see her again lmaoooo I'm sad, I made myself sad
"if I can't find the cure I'll fix you with my love"

The Cure - Lady Gaga
this is one the songs that made me Understand neurotypicals bc as misguided as they are, they do TRY and want us to be happy and can't understand why that's hard

it's sweet. like I didn't want or need it but the gesture is appreciated
"and sometimes I get nervous when I see an open door"

Human - the Killers
big mood, but especially for me bc I know it's a metaphor hut also open doors give me big ass anxiety

ALSO I love this song but I crack up every time I hear it bc of that damn Tumblr post
this one lmaooooo
"a moment's silence for when my baby puts her mouth on me"

Moment's Silence (Common Tongue) - Hozier
*pats pockets* where's my ace card? who took it.
uhhh Forbidden Friendship by John Powell from the HTTYD soundtrack doesn't have words but everyone should hear it so just, that
"oh hell yes
I'm a nervous wreck
the drugs just make me reset"

West Coast Smoke - Fall Out Boy
*Smoker, that's not my fault that's autocorrect lmao

this is one of those early for so fob songs that doesn't make SENSE but it was also highkey triggering for a looong time lmao

still slaps
"how do I know if this shit's fabricated?"

Breathin - Ariana Grande
I should mention that I have the Thomas Sanders cover in my library and that's what I'm listening to, it was my intro to this song and I think it's a lot softer than the original

anyway this line in particular is a Big Ass Mood (but also Thomas swearing is 😰)
"it's hard enough to find the time to sleep
it's easier to find the time to dream"

Things Aren't Always What They Seem - the Rags soundtrack
three things, a) big mood, b) nobody talks about Rags and they SHOULD 'cause it was a great movie and c) I am always down for a male version of Cinderella, ok
this song is very pretty too and I love both MAX and Keke Palmer so like.... win all around

"dreams and ideas should not be the same thing
you waited smiling for this?"

"but they love you, over and over they love you
thousands and thousands of eyes just like mine
aching to find who they are"
"but they love you, oh you can see how they love you
coated and warm, but that's all they can do
words only get through if they're sharp"

"I am burned out, I smell of smoke
it seems through her cracks and so I start to choke
sentences sit in her mouth that are templated, you waited,
smiling, for this?"

Burned Out - dodie
this is my favorite dodie song, first and foremost

she's like... her words are incredible I can't even describe

I wanna cover this song so bad lmao
I'm really astounded at how much emotion she puts into singing bc "you waited, smiling, for this?" is DEFINITELY a question, a scoff even, and that's kinda wild
from when I triiiied to cover this song lmao
"I don't even have my own attention"

Sunshine Riptide - Fall Out Boy
YES OK IT'S MORE FOB don't drag me ok that's a damn good line and all y'all know it

also Sunshine Riptide fuckin slaps, don't lie
"a cavern for a body
the deeper, darker kind
for all I hear are echoes
repeat inside my mind"

Worth the Fight - Broods
this is my favorite Mona song lmao thanks @_ktsimpson

this part of the song is very Pretty but u like these lyrics in particular bc "a cavern for a body" is uh how I feel about my head so Big Ass Mood, Broods,,
"I'm sick of faking diary entries
gotta get it in my head,
I'll never be sixteen again"

When - dodie
this whole song slaps, lyrics and sound, but that one felt like a punch to the gut tbh

also, aro mood, how appropriate for Valentine's Day lmao
"walking out of time
looking for a better place
something's on my mind
always in my headspace"

lovely - Billie Eilish, Khalid
y'all already know I love Khalid with my whole ass heart n soul, also this song introduced me to Billie Eilish whom I also love with my whole ass heart n soul

this song's lyrics are rather vague but I think that's the Point, also this one in particular resonated bc Anxiety,,
I love Khalid--this will come up whenever Silence rolls around lmao--bc he has no issues singing about mental illness and depression and anxiety and it's so nice to have songs I love that resonate with me in that way, it makes me feel less alone
also Khalid is a treasure and can marry me
"with a little willingness and a
hot-headed innocence
she turned her walk into a dance
found her right to significance
and to the mirror, quietly
she said come on and see me
be fearless"

Fearless - Malinda
I love this song wtf hey listen--just bc someone is a YouTuber doesn't mean they can't have good songs ok I have a LOT of Youtuber songs on here

this line felt like a love letter to my younger, fearless self, before the world told me to contain myself in a neat little box
makes me nostalgic for seven year old Jas who was allowed to be a child lmao
"far from the life she'd been hoping
chin up, but her chest cracked open
things she'd always known had left her quite alone
lost without a guarantee
in a world that still asked her to be fearless"

😭 this song is so good shut up
"and I could cry power
power has been cried by those stronger than me
straight into the face that tells you
to rattle your chains if you love being free"

Nina Cried Power - Hozier, Mavis Staples
this WHOLE SONG if you listen to one song on this whole list please listen to this one, holy shit, how appropriate and anthemic and a call to arms and CATCHY and gorgeous and uhhh I love Hozier thanks,
side note, that line right there is sung by Mavis Staples and how FUCKING APPROPRIATE HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH
"could've spent forever with your hands in my pockets
picture of your face in an invisible locket
you said there was nothing in the world that could stop it
I had a bad feeling"

Dancing With Our Hands Tied - Taylor Swift
this song kinda slapped me in the face and it wasn't until the Reputation concert when I actually paid attention to it

"I had a bad feeling" is such a... like that PERFECTLY sums up how I felt when I was lying in the arms of my ex and couldn't love him I just couldn't do it
she means it in a different way here--she means it in the way that she's been through this before and she doesn't want to Hope, this is this album's Out of the Woods, and I feel for the girl tbh I really do, my heart aches for her and I hope she finds what she's looking for--but
this song has particular significance for me and knowing even then that romantic love isn't for me, suspecting but not wanting to voice it, wanting to pretend for a little while longer

I'm happier now that I've accepted it, it's just that yeah at the time, it was a Bad Feeling
"you come from a good place, where I come from it's ugly
hood niggas, they love me
the reason you fuck wit me I dunno why
I know it's a lie, I don't know why I'm tryin"

RIP Dump - NBA Youngboy
I got complicated feelings bout youngboy lmao I like this song a lot tho, it's weirdly... melancholy for the sound of it
"if you knew, knew
what the bluebirds sang at you
you would never sing along
cast them out 'cause this is our culture
these new flocks are nothing but vultures"

Novocaine - Fall Out Boy

also Patrick's voice sounds DAMN good in this song, jesus christ
"you know you look so Seattle but you feel so LA"

Irresistible - Fall Out Boy
I still wanna know what this means, Peter.
"I'm only honest when it rains
if I time it right, the thunder breaks
when I open my mouth
I wanna tell you but I don't know how"

Neptune - Sleeping At Last
Sleeping At Last is one of the those artists like FOB, dodie, Hozier, etc where just all their lyrics are good and it doesn't matter what the song is it's gonna hit you in your Heart Place

this song in particular struck me so hard I named a fic after it :P
"your crooked love is just a pyramid scheme and I'm dizzy on dreams
but if you ask me, two's a whole lot lonelier than one
baby we should've left our love in the gutter where we found it
and to think, to think, your only crime is that you got caught"

Mighty Fall - FOB, Big Sean
SRAR is my favorite album, also, this has SUCH Soul Punk vibes Patrick oml, also, they did Big Sean so dirty in this music video lmfaoooo ybc was a trip tho
I gotta listen to more Big Sean too I like his flow a lot, I keep forgetting

I really only listen to rap when I'm in a certain Mood and that's rare enough to make me forget to look up more stuff by favorite rappers lmao
"I've been thinking bout my own protection
it scares me to feel this way"

What's Love Got to Do with It - Tina Turner
my GOD I love this song, that key change makes me FEEL THINGS also it's a big mood lmao
"but I'll take your heart served up two ways
I sing a bitter song
I'm a lonelier version of you, I just don't know where I went wrong"

Rat A Tat - Fall Out Boy, Courtney Love
um my favorite song on SRAR (FUCK YOU XANDER (I love you)) also one of the more crushing videos from ybc 😭

"is your world just a broken promise?
is your love just a drop of rain?"

Let It Burn - Red
first time I heard this song I thought the line was "is your love just a drop of a ring" and it made me emotional and that's all I can hear now when I listen to it lmaooo
"put love on hold,
Young Hollywood is on the other line
your nose runs ruby red,
Death's in a double bed
singing songs that can only catch the ears of the desperate"

The (After) Life Of The Party - Fall Out Boy
1) y'all KNEW this was gonna be primarily FOB I already done told you that

2) this song has specific significance to me bc it's the one I listened to at my most suicidal

3) it sounds like it should've been the trailer song to Perks of Being a Wallflower
it sounds like a sunset, I dunno what to tell you
"oh and I have flown a thousand miles
to empty rooms, and crowded aisles
and we went from cathedral bells
to show and tell and wish-you-wells
and I still look at you, and I am blinded"

Higher Window - Josh Groban
oh Josh..... you have raised yourself up tonight

kiss me you American idiot !
(if you're confused lmao)

(I do not want to kiss Josh Groban)
Josh Groban is one of the lowkey funniest people I've ever witnessed, just, fun fact
"I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory
when's it gonna get me?
in my sleep? seven feet ahead of me?
if I see it coming do I run or do I let it be?
is it like a beat without a melody?"

My Shot - Hamilton soundtrack
big ass mood Lin 😭
"scratch that--this is not a moment, it's the movement" I love this line, the like--no, we're not doing that, push back against that bullshit, the drive to DO something else, and not let destiny drive you into the ground without a fight

I love that :c
"and in the naked light I saw
ten thousand people, maybe more
people talking without speaking
people hearing without listening
people writing songs
that voices never share, and
no one dared
disturb the sound of silence"

The Sound of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel
I'm listening to this new Pentatonix cover on repeat and it's making me feel some things :/
"believe me, I know
I've sunk pretty low
but whatever I've done, you deserve"

Ready As I'll Ever Be - cast of Tangled: the Series
interesting villain this show has, I don't wanna spoil anything but y'all should watch Tangled: the Series, it's VERY well done. also this bit is sung by Jeremy Jordan. yes, THAT Jeremy Jordan.
that line in particular Gets Me and I think it's just the way it's sung, it's like the only part where the villain acknowledges that what they're doing is Wrong, even if they're doing it for (their perceived) "right reasons"

it's very sad. it's like quiet resolve :c
"and hope hit my cracked lips,
I never thought I'd want this
to stay"

here comes the rain. - Xander Corbett, Jasmine Brown (that's me! :D )
I wasn't sure if I should include this lmao that's technically my line (as in I wrote it, Xander is the one who sings it) but it's personal for me. I'd always associated rain with hope, and the promise of change

our lips are cracked bc we've been deprived of it so long lol
dehydration, y'know. we wrote this in the summertime. that's also where the line "sky stretched on overhead, nothing but blue; they tell me to love the sun, it's good for you" comes from, 'cause summer is always rock bottom depression for me. not a fan of heat :/

it is really really wild hearing my voice on a song that isn't a cover bc I'm like... this is the original it's supposed to sound like that

I mean there are things that can be improved that I can hear in my voice n tone n stuff but? there's no rage when I don't do something the
original artist did bc... I'm the original artist....... every time I sing this song I make the same artistic choices as when I recorded it. It's my voice n my style n my?? tone, all of it is me. and Xander, Obviously, lmao but just, it's wild
hm, I think my voice sounds like chestnuts
"she said, "you're gonna be a light in a cold world
you got extra love pumping up your veins"
to my people feeling down and my people feeling empty
I got so much of this love, I gotta give it away"

Give Love - Andy Grammer, LunchMoney Lewis
I love this song it's a bop lmao but more than that this is exactly how I feel about myself

bursting at the seams with love and it's hard to keep for myself but giving it is easy
side note I adore Andy Grammer, I fell in love with him during Dancing With the Stars, he's such a sweet dude and he sings about good stuff and he loves his mom so much, be like Andy Grammer 😭
"I got the skyline in my veins"

Lake Effect Kid - Fall Out Boy
I fucking LOVE this line it's so classic Pete but it's also along the lines of what I would write

also the harmonies in this song slap

the song slaps in general

I love Fall Out Boy
"you're appealing to emotions that I simply do not have
blackmail myself, 'cause I ain't got anyone else
this is a stick up
give us all your inspiration"

It's Hard to Say "I Do" When I Don't - Fall Out Boy
have I done this one yet

this is one of my favorite songs off Infinity bc it tells such a clever little story
the other line that sticks out from this one is "when I said that I'd return to you, I meant more like a relapse"

that's a line you yell at the top of your lungs from the roof of a hotel or something lmao
"if you have children someday
when they point the pictures
please tell them my name"

Long Live - Taylor Swift
I never understood why people think Taylor Swift is a bad songwriter bc she's actually very skilled in making you Feel Things you've never experienced lmao

this song hits home for me in a lot of ways. It's a Shift song, it's me and my best friend's song, it has significance for
a lot of the stories I've written but also it just tells a really good, emotional story that mostly begs nostalgia to stay a little while longer bc things are only beautiful because they're temporary

it's a damn good song
"life doesn't discriminate
between the sinners and the saints
it takes and it takes and it takes
and we keep living anyway"

Wait For It - Hamilton soundtrack
okay... I can't describe to you how this song flipped everything on its axis for me

it's the first (maybe second?) song I heard off the Hamilton soundtrack and for one thing, it's gorgeous, the piano is really... melancholy and resolute and I love that, but also this chorus
I dunno if you heard it but they substitute the first word in every repeat of the chorus so it's love doesn't discriminate, and then death, and then life, and that's VERY clever, but also to suicidal twenty-year-old Jasmine, hearing "we keep living anyway" in spite of all of
life's bullshit and the hopelessness of experiencing it every day, hearing "well I'm alive, might as well find out why" in the monotony and pain of the waking world

I mean it just gave me a different perspective. It's a beautiful song, we all know that, but this song Saved Me.
"you better watch your step 'cause the path is steep
better hold your breath 'cause the water's deep
it's a long way down off of Lover's Leap,
but falling's half the fun!"

Upendi - Lion King II soundtrack
ahem, Hil readers might recognize this lmao

I love this lil metaphor, also this song, but this in particular because I don't really Get romantic love but this puts it in perspective for me
side note, watch TLKII I am BEGGING you
"when my time comes
forget the wrong that I've done
help me leave behind some reason to be missed"

Leave Out All The Rest - Linkin Park
"I found peace in your violence
can't tell me there's no point in trying
I'm at one,
and I've been quiet for too long"

Silence - Khalid, Marshmello
this is the song that made me fall in love with Khalid lmao I heard it on the radio at work and immediately burst into tears

the song is pretty but I just really appreciate this boy as a person and as someone who is unafraid in baring his soul, I really, REALLY appreciate that
"head like a steep trap
wish I didn't
I didn't
I didn't
I didn't
I didn't
I didn't
I didn't
I don't just want to be a footnote
in someone else's happiness"

Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown On A Bad Bet - Fall Out Boy
lmfao I love this song but I can't believe I typed that whole ass title out

anyway I used to say something similar to this and it pleasantly surprised me that Pete and I have the same thought errors
"but if I'm never your hero I can never let you down"

Explode - Patrick Stump
arguably my favorite song off Patrick's solo album (there are a lot tho I heckin love Soul Punk) but mostly bc a) this song is Suicide Ideation in its purest panicky form and b) this line is a MOOD when you set yourself up to be stable when you're NOT
never get sick if the realization dawning in their eyes when they realize you're actually batshit crazy and by "never get sick" I mean "why can't I lead with this and have people believe me so they can stop expecting so goddamned much of me"

2017 was,, a rough year
"I left my conscience pressed between the pages of the Bible in the drawer
what did it ever do for me, I say
it never calls me when I'm down
love never wanted me
but I took it anyway"

XO - Fall Out Boy
"love never wanted me but I took it anyway" drag me Peter wtf
"and perfect boys, with their perfect lives
nobody wants to hear you sing about tragedy"

Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes - Fall Out Boy
this whole song slaps but this line !! it's the biggest mental illness mood I ever did hear wtf wt F you're RIGHT nobody wants to hear it!! fuck
"and I'm trying hard to make you want me
but I don't wanna try too hard
I was thinking you got what you came for
but you're here now"

Four Walls - Broods
I really cried like immediately like bawled on the SPOT I did that thing they do in Ghibli movies where their shoulders hunch and tears spring to their eyes and their hair floats up n stuff

hoo boy
another good line in this is "you know I told you that I wasn't scared, well I lied" what a mood
"take my whole life too"

Can't Help Falling In Love - Elvis
this is the Pentatonix version bc a) I don't like Elvis and b) Pentatonix smacks

anyway there's something about the jump from "take my hand, take everything I have" it's just v beautiful
"I found peace in your violence"

Silence - Khalid
I heard this song for the first time at work and I burst into tears and confused my coworkers lmao

I'd always really liked Khalid but this was the first time I sat there and was like yeah. I mean, yeah, if he asked I would, yeah
ope I just re-read this thread and I already have Silence on there but I regret nothing doing it twice, that song smacks
"mold me in your image, imperfectly conceived
by voices less careful than you"

Music Box - Malinda
this song is SO pretty I love Malinda wtf
"her fight and fury is fiery
oh but she loves like sleep to the freezing
sweet and right and merciful
I'm all but washed
in the tide of her breathing"

Cherry Wine - Hozier
this song hURTS BROOOO

also there's just something to be said about a man singing about his abusive female partner, like, I know it happens but no one talks about it and here Hozier is penning a GORGEOUS song with such horrifying lyrics, ugh, I love him
"give your love to her
don't get mad at her
she's a gentle girl"

Daughter of the King - The Venus Project
KT put this on Mona's playlist and I cried, anyway
"2 AM and I'm still awake writing a song
if I get it all down on paper, it's no longer
inside of me, threatening the life it belongs to
and I feel like I'm naked in front of a crowd
'cause these words are my diary screaming out loud"

Breathe - Anna Nalick
dis of course is one of those songs you hear and are instantly transported back to being ten and crying bc your life is so hard kdhdjfj
"but then you called, showed your cards
I turned around before I hit the tunnel
sat on the roof, you and I"

Cornelia Street - Taylor Swift
Cornelia Street 😭😭😭😭😭😭 "baby I get mystified at how this city screams your name" BR OOOOOO
I'm fine I'm just emotional
this is my favorite Taylor Swift song. State of Grace has been replaced, sorry SOG
"I'm on that pursuit of happiness and I know
everything that shine ain't always gonna be gold
I'll be fine once I get it
I'll be good"

Pursuit of Happiness - Kid Cudi
hm, this seems like a Mona song--
"but we were something, don't you think so?
roaring twenties, tossing pennies in the pool
and if my wishes came true
it would've been you"

the 1 - Taylor Swift
man Taylor does bittersweet so well lol

also I'm excited bc I haven't really done this thread since Lover AND folklore came out so we've got a lotta Taylor to catch up on XD
