All that I’ve compromised to feel another high
I’ve got to keep it down tonight”

In the big black sky
And you said to me”

She comes round and she goes down on me”

128. Semisonic – Closing Time
“Closing time
Open all the doors and let you out into the world
Closing time
Turn all of the lights on over every boy and every girl

Closing time
You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here”

To clubs we’ll never get in

But can’t stand to see me
Walk out the door”

It’s like a vision of love that seems to be true
Another night, another dream, but always you
In the night, I dream of love so true”

Just why I love you so
Maybe it’s just the way
That God made me this day..”

This is where we all came from
The dreams we have, the love we share
This is what we’re waiting for”

oh, do things I can like so,
why are we losing time
I don’t want to get
up oh, bring me
what I need so, why
are we losing time”

So it’s not just gonna happen like that

I ain’t no hollaback girl”

“I’ve had enough of danger
And people on the streets
I’m looking out for angels
Just trying to find some peace
Now I think it’s time
That you let me know
So if you love me
Say you love me
But if you don’t
Just let me go…”

138. No Doubt – Don’t Speak
“Don’t speak
I know just what you’re saying
So please stop explaining
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts
Don’t speak
I know what you’re thinking
I don’t need your reasons
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts”

She remind me of a West Side story
Growing up in Spanish Harlem
She living a life just like a movie star
Maria, Maria
She fell in love in East L.A
To the sounds of the guitar, yeah, yeah”

140. Maroon 5 ft. Christina Aguilera – Moves Like Jagger
“Just shoot for the stars
If it feels right
And aim for my heart
If you feel like
And take me away and make it OK
I swear I’ll behave”
