The Break Up Playlist

I’m pretty sure most of us has gone through this dark cloud of break-ups and here are a couple of songs that I recovered from my old playlist/songs that I vividly remember that sent me to an all nighter crying session with my bed and pillow and chocolates and ocassionally with booze.

Gravity by Sara Bareilles (My ultimate heartbreak song and one of my favorites)

Something always brings me back to you.
It never takes too long.
No matter what I say or do
I’ll still feel you here ’til the moment I’m gone.

You hold me without touch.
You keep me without chains.
I never wanted anything so much
Than to drown in your love and not feel your rain.
Set me free,
Leave me be.
I don’t wanna fall another moment into your gravity
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I’m supposed to be.
But you’re on to me and all over me.

Oh, you loved me ’cause I’m fragile
When I thought that I was strong.
But you touch me for a little while
And all my fragile strength is gone.

I live here on my knees
As I try to make you see
That you’re everything I think I need here on the ground.

But you’re neither friend nor foe
Though I can’t seem to let you go.
The one thing that I still know is that you’re keeping me down.

You’re keeping me down, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You’re on to me, on to me, and all over…

Something always brings me back to you.
It never takes too long.

Hiling by Paramita

Nahihirapan na ang aking isip
Nauubusan na ng sasabihin sa iyo..
Nanlalamig na ba ang pag-ibig mo sa ‘kin..
Giliw..
Nalilito ako, nais kong sagipin ang ating
Nalulunod na pag-ibig
Nguni’t handa akong palayain ka
Kung ito ang ‘yong hiling
Gaano man kasakit sa akin
Ibibigay sa yo
Ang tanging pakiusap lang
Wag mo akong kalimutan..

Kay rami nang nagdaan
Na pagsubok sa ting pag-ibig
Kakayanin pa kayang mabawi pa
Ang mga nasabi nang masasakit na salita..

Dito na Lang – Kyla

Dito na lang, di ko kaya
Sa huling sandali yakap ka
Takot ay dama 
Pagalis mo’y makita 
At sa alaala’y hindi mabura

Kung kaya ko lang sabihing di masakit
Kung kaya ko lang sabihing hanggang sa muli
Kung kaya ko lang isiping magbabalik ka pa rin
Ngunit di na, hanggang dito na lang

Dito na lang, pipikit ko na lang
Mga mata sa iyong paglisan
Para bang kailan lang
Tayo ay kay saya
At sa alaala’y hindi mabura

Scared to Death – KZ Tandingan

You can leave me
Take away all that I have
You can want me
Love me for who I am
Choices, romance
Takin’ me high in the air
Flyin’, so scared
Afraid not to see you again

Cause I’m scared to death
Now that I’m losin’ you
I’m scared to death
Knowin’ I can’t get through
I’m scared to death
Living this so lonely life without you
Oh baby, I’m scared to death

Somethings changin’
Giving me fears run through my head
Only find me
Give me the eyes I will understand
Words left unsaid
Leaving me weak in the edge
Getting over
I’m running scared
I can’t comprehend

Separate Lives – Nina & Jimmy Bondoc 

You called me from the room in your hotel
All full of romance
For someone that you met
Telling me how sorry you were
Leaving so soon
And that you miss me sometimes
When you’re alone in your room
Do I feel lonely too?

You have no right to ask me how I feel
You have no right to speak to me so kind
I can’t go on holding onto ties
Now that we’re living separate lives

I held on to let you go
And if you lost your love for me
You never let it show
There was no way to compromise
So now we’re living separate lives

Oh, it’s so typical
Love leads to isolation
So you build that wall
And you make it stronger

The Scientist – Coldplay

Come up to meet you,
Tell you I’m sorry,
You don’t know how lovely you are.

I had to find you,
Tell you I need you,
Tell you I set you apart.

Tell me your secrets,
And ask me your questions,
Oh let’s go back to the start.

Runnin’ in circles,
Comin’ up tails,
Heads on a science apart.

Nobody said it was easy,
It’s such a shame for us to part.
Nobody said it was easy,
No one ever said it would be this hard.
Oh take me back to the start.

I was just guessin’,
At numbers and figures,
Pullin’ the puzzles apart.

Questions of science,
Science and progress,
Do not speak as loud as my heart.

Tell me you love me,
Come back and haunt me,
Oh, what a rush to the start.

Sunday Drive – Early November

And we wait above a road.
We’re turning to go home.
And the silence from the side of the car,
Tells me everything and how we are.
‘Cause there’s no more trying to make this so right.
There’s no more trying tonight.

And you know it’s not so easy when
You’re all alone,
And I wonder if I’m alone
In your head.

I know something is wrong,
I just don’t know what to do.
You say it’s only me, and that I’m so perfect for you.
I don’t want to try no more,
I don’t want to make this right.
I just want you to be true to me one time.

And you know it’s not so easy when
You’re all alone,
And I wonder if I’m alone
In your head.

Twelve days gone by since I have saw you last,
I’ll give this one more try,
I’ll give it all my best, and I’ll ask
What could you be doing that is so much fun?
Without me by your side,
Without me by your side.
And I will take a step back, and I’ll let you ahead,
And I will take a step away, and see if you come back,
Because there’s no more trying to make this so right,
There’s no more trying,
There’s no more trying tonight.

We’ll never be the same,
We will never be the same,
We will never be the same,
We will never be the same,
Until you’re done.

Broken Sonnet – Hale

And now I concede on the night
Of this fifteenth song
Of melancholy, of melancholy
And now I will admit in this fourth line
That I love you, that I love you

I don’t care what they say
I don’t care what they do

Cause tonight I leave my fears behind
Cause tonight I’ll be right at your side

The clock on the tv says 8: 39 P. M.
It’s the same, it’s the same
And in this next line I’ll say it all over again
That I love you, that I love you

I don’t care what they say
I don’t care what they do

Cause tonight I leave my fears behind
Cause tonight I’ll be right at your side
Lie down right next to me
Lie down right next to me
And I will never let go, will never let go

I leave my fears behind
Cause tonight I’ll be right at your side
Lie down right next to me
Lie down right next to me
And I will never let go, never let go

But still I see the tears from your eyes
Maybe I’m just not the one for you

City – Sara Bareilles

There’s a harvest each saturday night
At the bars filled with perfume and hitching a ride
A place you can stand for one night and get gone
It’s clear this conversation ain’t’ doing a thing
Cause these boys only listen to me when I sing
And I don’t feel like singing tonight
All the same songs

Here in these deep city lights
Girl could get lost tonight
I’m finding every reason to be gone
Nothing here to hold on to
Could I hold you?

The situation’s always the same
You got your wolves in their clothes whispering Hollywood’s name
Stealing gold from the silver they see
But it’s not me

Calling out somebody save me I feel like I’m fading away
Am I gone?
Calling out somebody save me I feel like I’m fading

I’m Scared – Duffy

The blank pages
Of my diary
That I haven’t touched
Ssince you left me
The closed blinds
In my home
See no light of day
Dust gathers
On my stereo
Cos I can’t bare
To hear the radio
The piano sits
In a shaded space
With a picture
Of your face

I’m scared
To face another day
Cos the fear in me
Just won’t go away
In an instant
You were gone
And I’m scared

Coffee stains
On your favorite book
Remind me of you
So I can’t even look
The magazines
You left on the floor
You won’t need
Them anymore

A towel left
Hangin on the wall
No sign of wet foosteps
In the hall
There’s no smell
Of your sweet cologne
I’m lying here alone

Someone like you – Adele

I heard, that you’re settled down, 
That you, found a girl and your married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things, I didn’t give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light
.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited, 
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I’d hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded, 
That for me, it isn’t over.

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best, for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remember you said, 
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah
.

You’d know, how the time flies.
Only yesterday, was the time of our lives.
We were born and raised in a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited, 
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I’d hoped you’d see my face & that you’d be reminded, 
That for me, it isn’t over.

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remember you say, 
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”, yay.

Nothing compares, no worries or cares.
Regret’s and mistakes they’re memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

I can’t make you love me – Adele

Turn down the lights
Turn down the bed
Turn down these voices
Inside my head
Lay down with me
Tell me no lies
Just hold me close
Don’t patronize
Don’t patronize me

I can’t make you love me if you don’t
You can’t make your heart feel
Somethin’ that it won’t
Here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart
And I will feel the power but you won’t
No you won’t
‘Cause I can’t make you love me
When you don’t
When you don’t

I’ll close my eyes
‘Cause then I won’t see
The love you don’t feel
When you’re holdin’ me
Morning will come
And I’ll do what’s right
Just give me till then
To give up this fight
And I will give up this fight

Boston – Augustana

In the light of the sun, is there anyone? Oh it has begun…
Oh dear you look so lost, eyes are red and tears are shed,
This world you must’ve crossed… You said…

You don’t know me, you don’t even care, oh yeah,
She said
You don’t know me, and you don’t wear my chains… Oh yeah,

Essential yet appealed, carry all your thoughts across
An open field,
When flowers gaze at you… They’re not the only ones who cry
When they see you
You said…

You don’t know me, you don’t even care, oh yeah,
She said
You don’t know me, and you don’t wear my chains… Oh yeah,

She said I think I’ll go to Boston…
I think I’ll start a new life,
I think I’ll start it over, where no one knows my name,
I’ll get out of California, I’m tired of the weather,
I think I’ll get a lover and fly em out to Spain…
I think I’ll go to Boston,
I think that I’m just tired
I think I need a new town, to leave this all behind…
I think I need a sunrise, I’m tired of the sunset,
I hear it’s nice in the Summer, some snow would be nice… Oh yeah
,

You don’t know me, you don’t even care…

Boston… Where no one knows my name… Yeah
Where no one knows my name…
Where no one knows my name…
Yeah Boston…
Where no one knows my name.

Without a word – Birdy

Hey you can tell the world
That you’re leaving
And you can pack your bags
And spread your wings
And you can tell them all
That it’s over
But while you wave goodbye
I’ll be getting closer

Stand there and look into my eyes
And tell me that all we had were lies
Show me that to you it don’t count
And I’ll stand here if you prefer
Yes I’ll leave you without a word
Without a word

And you can tell the world
That you’re tired
But your excuses, they won’t work
‘Cause I’ll know that you’re lying
Every time that I see your face
I notice all the suffering
Just turn to my embrace
I won’t let you come to nothing

Stand there and look into my eyes
And tell me that all we had were lies
Show me that to you it don’t count
And I’ll stand here if you prefer
Yes I’ll leave you without a word
Without a word

Skinny Love – Birdy

Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt we were never here
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Right in the moment this order’s tall

I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
In the morning I’ll be with you
But it will be a different “kind”
I’ll be holding all the tickets
And you’ll be owning all the fines

Come on skinny love what happened here
Suckle on the hope in lite brassiere
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Sullen load is full; so slow on the split

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?

Medicine – Daughter

Pick it up, pick it all up.
And start again.
You’ve got a second chance,
You could go home.
Escape it all.
It’s just irrelevant.

It’s just medicine.
It’s just medicine.

You could still be,
What you want to,
What you said you were
When I met you.

You’ve got a warm heart,
You’ve got a beautiful brain,
But it’s disintegrating
From all the medicine.
From all the medicine.
From all the medicine.
Medicine.

You could still be,
What you want to be,
What you said you were,
When you met me.

Huwag Ka Nang Umiyak – Ebe Dancel & KZ Tandingan

Wag ka nang umiyak, sa mundong pabago-bago
pag-ibig ko ay totoo
ako ang iyong bangka, kung magalit man
ang alon, ng panahon, sabay tayong aahon

Kung wala ka nang maintindihan
Kung wala ka nang makapitan
Kapit ka sa akin, kapit ka sa akin
Di kita bibitawan

Wag kang umiyak, mahaba man ang araw
uuwi ka sa yakap ko
wag mo nang damdamin kung wala ako sayong tabi
iiwan kong puso ko sa yo
at kung pakiramdam moy wala ka nang kakampi
isipin mo ako dahil pusot isip koy
nasa yong tabi

di kita pababayaan

Kapit ka, kumapit ka
(para sa buhay ng buhay ko)

Cosmic Love – Florence and the Machines

A falling star, 
Fell from your heart, 
And landed in my eyes, 

I screamed aloud, 
As it tore through them, 
And now it’s left me blind, 

The stars, the moon, 
They have all been blown out, 
You left me in the dark, 

No dawn, no day, 
I’m always in this twilight, 
In the shadow of your heart, 

And in the dark, 
I can hear your heartbeat, I tried to find the sound, 
But then it stopped, 
And I was in the darkness, 
So darkness I became, 

I took the stars from my eyes, 
And then I made a map, 
I knew that some how, 
I could find my way back, 

Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too, 
So I stayed in the darkness with you, 

Try – Nelly Furtado

All I know
Is everything is not as it’s sold
But the more I grow the less I know
And I have lived so many lives
Though I’m not old
And the more I see, the less I grow
The fewer the seeds the more I sow

Then I see you standing there
Wanting more from me
And all I can do is try
Then I see you standing there
Wanting more from me
And all I can do is try

I wish I hadn’t seen all of the realness
And all the real people are really not real at all
The more I learn The more I learn
The more I cry the more I cry
As I say goodbye to the way of life
I thought I had designed for me

All of the moments that already passed
We’ll try to go back and make them last
All of the things we want each other to be
We never will be
And that’s wonderful, and that’s life
And that’s you, baby
This is me, baby
And we are, we are, we are, we are
Free
In our love
We are free in our love

Breathe Again – Sara Bareilles

Car is parked, bags are packed, but what kind of heart doesn’t look back
At the comfortable glow from the porch, the one I will still call yours?
All those words came undone and now I’m not the only one
Facing the ghosts that decide if the fire inside still burns

All I have, all I need, he’s the air I would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still I’m searching for something
Out of breath, I am left hoping someday I’ll breathe again
I’ll breathe again

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

All I have, all I need, he’s the air I would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still I’m searching for something

Out of breath, I am left hoping someday I’ll breathe again

It hurts to be here
I only wanted love from you
It hurts to be here
What am I gonna do?

All I have, all I need, he’s the air I would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still I’m searching
All I have, all I need, he’s the air I would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still I’m searching for something
Out of breath, I am left hoping someday I’ll breathe again
I’ll breathe again
I’ll breathe again
I’ll breathe again
I’ll breathe again
I’ll breathe again…

Ikot ikot – Sarah Geronimo

Heto na naman tayo
Parang kelan lang ang huli
Gaano man kalayo
Tayo’y pinagtatagpong muli
Ilang ulit nagkasakitan
Ngunit paulit na gumagaling
Ilang ulit balak na iwan
Ngunit patuloy na bumabalik

Kay rami nang sakit
Na nilimot napabayaan
‘Di maiwasang isipin
Na tayo’y para bang tumatakbo
Sa walang hanggan na kalye, tumatakbo
Ang pag-ibig na tila ba ‘sang biyaheng
Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot lang

Heto na naman tayo
Damdamin natin ay bumubugso
Tayo ay muling napaso
Pintig ng puso ay lumulusong
Bakit pa ba, hinahayaan
Minsan inisip lumayo na lang
Ngunit hindi kita maiiwan
Mahal pa rin kita ngayon pa man

Araw-araw, dulo’t-dulo
May unos na dumaratal
Ano nga bang puno’t dulo
Bakit nagtatagal

Feelings – Up Dharma Down


Breaking through the night
In this cold Fahrenheit
Shadows have left
Crying got old

Bland and bittersweet
Wondering what went wrong
There goes all hope
There goes all hope

But the feeling
It tries to escape
Bleeds through the light
Even when I close my eyes
Its not seething
The weight on this shoulder
I can’t wait to chase the fiction home
And carry on

Favors in reverse
Songs are unrehearsed
When I get through this
I hope I get through you

Stains on my mind
The cloud on that hour
The minute you closed the door
My eyes washed the floor

Baby, baby it’s hard to say
But there seems to be no other way
You left and you were right
So I have to let us down this time

‘Cause I can’t
‘Cause I can’t feel it

No other way but down
No other way but down
You said so yourself

It’s just
It’s just a feeling
It’s just a feeling

What are you crying for
What are you crying for
When it’s just a feeling
God knows you can get through this

When it’s just a feeling
They are just feelings
These are just feelings

I wanna know
Do you feel anything
As you go on your way
Driving home
As I sleep alone tonight
I wanna know
Do you feel anything
For me

Is there anything you like to say tonight?
Before I go
Before I go… Forever…
