She is a woman so intensely destined for happiness (if only purely physical happiness, mere bodily well-being), and yet she has chosen, almost casually, it seems, solitude, loyalty to an absent one, a refusal to love…

Sharon van Etten – A Crime

To say the things I want to say to you would be a crime
To admit I’m still in love with you, after all this time
I’d rather let you touch my arm until you die
Seduce me with your charms until I’m drunk on them go home and drink in bed and never let myself be in love like that again

Light a cigarette and think of you and walk away 
Turning all the words running in my head I won’t say
Because of all these triangles and squares the memory we seem to share replays a distant love that plays my records wrong 

Never let myself love like that again
Never let myself love like that again

To say the words I want to say to you would be a lie
By the time I get the courage I am drunk and you are tired
Alone in this basement where I will write these songs
Of things I’ll never say to you again and you know why

Never let myself love like that again
Never let myself love like that again
Never let myself love like that again
Never let myself love like that again

Lady Gaga – Brown Eyes

Where everything was everything but everything is over
Everything could be everything if only we were older
I guess it’s just a silly song about you
And how I lost you and your brown eyes

Everything was everything but baby, it’s the last show
Everything could be everything, but it’s time to say goodbye, so
Get your last fix and your last hit
Grab your old girl with her new tricks
Honey, yeah, it’s no surprise that I got lost in your brown eyes
