But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make it like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and it feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and change your number
But I don’t even need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
That I used to know
—“Somebody that I used to Know,” Gotye
But you held your pride
Like you should’ve held me.
This could be the ending why are we pretending this is nothing?
I’d tell you I miss you but I don’t know how
I’ve never heard silence quite this loud.
Now I’m standing alone in a crowded room and we’re not speaking
And I’m dying to know is it killing you like its killing me?
I don’t know what to say when a twist of fate made it all come down
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now.
—“The Story of Us,” Taylor Swift
Suddenly the world’s a perfect place,
Suddenly the world is full of grace.
Suddenly my life doesn’t seem like a waste
Now that I’ve met you.
—“Come What May”, Moulin Rouge
I hope you don’t mind, that I put down in words
How wonderful life is, now that you’re in the world.
—“Your Song,” Elton John
You’ll come back when its over
No need to say goodbye
—“The Call,” Regina Spektor
So keep on smiling
And the whole world smiles with you.
—When You’re Smiling, Louis Armstrong
