1. Pedro the Lion – Winners Never Quit
if at first you don’t succeed
try, try again
if i were you i’d give up
the path is too narrow
the way is too steep

2. Snow Patrol – Make This Go On Forever
All that I keep thinking throughout this whole flight
Is it could take my whole damn life to make this right
This splintered mast I’m holding on won’t save me long
Because I know fine well that what I did was wrong

3. Tonya Gilmore – Gun
I won’t have the strength to stand alone when this is done
And I won’t have the breath to say aloud that I have won
But you will tell it by my face
You will see it in my eyes
You will feel your heart drop down
When you see my wicked smile
And then you’ll know what I have done
And than you’ll know what I have won

I don’t need a bullet ’cause I don’t have a gun
And I don’t need a gun ’cause I’ve got too much love
I’ve got enough love to save the world
I’ve got enough hate to start a war

4. Snow Patrol – Just Say Yes
Just say yes, just say there’s nothing holding you back
It’s not a test, nor a trick of the mind
Only love

Just say yes, cause I’m aching and I know you are too
For the touch of your warm skin
As I breathe you in

5. Olafur Arnalds – Faun

6. Olafur Arnalds – Romance

7. Coldplay – Fix You
When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you’re too in love to let it go
But if you never try you’ll never know
Just what you’re worth

Tears stream down on your face
When you lose something you cannot replace

8. Incubus – The Warmth
Don’t let the world bring you down
Not everyone here is that fucked up and cold
Remember why you came and while you’re alive
Experience the warmth before you go

9. Snow Patrol – Run
Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

10. Michael Jackson – They Don’t Care About Us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible because you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of shame
They’re throwing me in a class with a bad name
I can’t believe this is the land from which I came

11. Emery – Left With Alibis and Lying Eyes
Watching someone stop breathing.
Feel their arms and palms releasing.
The color, the smell of the skin,
All of this with your fingerprints.
And there isn’t a thing that we can do.

(Murderer, with your teenage eyes, resist confession.
Oh, the weight is so much, my heart is hollow.
With this foolish thing I’ve done)
There’s no compromise.
So remember this.
Your hands are lies.
It’s too late for ifs.

12. Underoath – Some will seek forgiveness, Others escape
And I swear I’ll know your face in the crowd
And I’ll hear your voice so loud
When you’re whispering

Hey unfaithful I will teach you
To be stronger, to be stronger
Hey ungraceful I will teach you
To forgive one another.

13. Chaz Knapp – Delicate Goodbye

14. Death Cab for Cutie – Song for Kelly Huckaby
Photographs of the best time you had,
windows smugded by the speed.
Leaving home with our bags from Iron street
as morning turned into California.

15. Thousand Foot Krutch – The Art of Breaking
I’ll pick you up, won’t let you fall
I’ll build your trust and it won’t hurt at all,
Your only drug will let you down,
I’m through now, so take me and blow me away

When I feel numb I’ll let you know,
I won’t become what I was before,
You cannot kill what’s not your creation,
This is the Art of Breaking

I think I might just lose my mind
If I have to watch this one more time
I can’t explain how many times i’ve
Stayed for you when you were on my mind

No one ever said that it was easy
So come out of the cold and stop your bleeding
I never would of thought that things could
Go this far, but please believe me

16. Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars
We’ll do it all
On our own

We don’t need
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

17. OneRepublic – Marching On
For those days we felt like a mistake,
Those times when loves what you hate,
We keep marching on.

For those nights when I couldn’t be there,
I’ve made it harder to know that you know,
That somehow,
We’ll keep moving on.

There’s so many wars we fought,
There’s so many things were not,
But with what we have,
I promise you that,
We’re marching on.

For those doubts that swirl all around us,
For those lives that tear at the seams,
We know,
We’re not what we’ve seen,

For this dance we’ll move with each other.
There ain’t no other step than one foot,
Right in front of the other.

We’ll have the days we break,
And we’ll have the scars to prove it,
We’ll have the bonds that we save,
But we’ll have the heart not to lose it.

For all of the times we’ve stopped,
For all of the things I’m not.

We put one foot in front of the other,
We move like we ain’t got no other,
We go when we go,
We’re marching on.

A few songs are missing – Pedro the Lion’s “Winners Never Quit” and Tonya Gilmore’s “Gun.”
