“Where Words Fail, Music Speaks” // The Music Tag

The Music Tag

Hi guys, just a quick little tag! That’s not book related, sorry! I wanted to have a more in depth post up, but some really stressful and awful real life stuff happened all at once today so I haven’t had the energy.

I wasn’t actually tagged to do this, but I saw it posted by Fadwa @ Word Wonders, Yasaman @ Following Muses and Giovanna @ Book Coma and since they did say they were tagging everyone who wanted to and because music is everything to me I really wanted to do it! Make sure to check them out and give them a follow!

The Rules:

  • List the first 10 songs that come on shuffle (no skipsies).
  • Then write your favorite lyric (or verse) from each song.
  • Tag/link others

The Songs:

The titles link to the song on YouTube in case you want to hear!

Ryan Star – Breathe

Let go of the fear, let go of the doubt
Let go of the ones who try to bring you down
You’re gonna be fine, don’t hold it inside
And if you hurt right now
Then let it all come out

The Smiths – Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now

In my life
Why do I smile
At people who I’d much rather kick in the eye
I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour
But heaven knows I’m miserable now

All Time Low – Old Scars / Future Hearts

I won’t fade away
Be forgotten or just cast away
This life is mine to live (this life is mine to live)
I won’t fade away
I am lost inside this endless haze of life
But this life is mine to live

We got scars on our future hearts
But we never looked back

Jack’s Mannequin – Dark Blue

This flood (this flood) is slowly rising up swallowing the ground
Beneath my feet, Tell me how anybody thinks under this condition so
I’ll swim (I’ll swim) as the water rises up, the sun is sinking down
And now all I can see are the planets in a row
Suggesting it’s best that I slow down

Bastille – Haunt (Demo)

We’ll make our agreements about when to meet
And I’ll leave you in the doorway
The cold evening aches as it leaves in its wake
All the memories left by the day
And I’m questioning why
As you look to the sky
That it’s cloudless up above our heads
And thoughts come to mind that our short little lives
Haven’t left the path that they will tread

Halsey – Hurricane

I’m a wanderess
I’m a one night stand
Don’t belong to no city
Don’t belong to no man
I’m the violence in the pouring rain
I’m a hurricane

The Amity Affliction – Open Letter

Well, I’m not searching the sky for a reason to live
‘Cause I found beauty right here and the passion to give
So let me give you my heart, let me give you my tears
Let me give you my life, let me give you my fears

Just so you can hold on and sing while I do, sing these words out so loud
Like I sing them for you
This is your open letter, something to remember
We can still keep on fighting even though life is not forever

You Me At Six – The Rumour

We say we have our best friends yet we stab them in the back
We try to show some love and, it’s a skill that we lack
I’ve had it with this crowd, I’m done with this town
I’ve had enough of these shows and its over with you now

The Wonder Years – Cigarettes & Saints

(side note: my favourite song of 2015 tbh and an amazing music video with a super important message)

I’m sure there ain’t a heaven
but that don’t mean I don’t like to picture you there
You were heat lightning
You were a storm that never rolled in
You were the northern lights in a southern town, a caustic fleeting thing
I’ll bury your memories in the garden
I’ll watch them grow with the flowers in the spring
I’ll keep you with me

Pvris – White Noise

(side note: this is my favourite music video ever)

It’s hard to be what you need through a static screen
Been trying to speak for weeks and weeks 
Open my mouth
All that comes out is white noise and incomprehensible sounds
And all you ever do is turn me down


Like always feel free to give this a miss if you don’t want to do it or if you’ve already done it ♥

      1. That’s exciting!! I haven’t been to a show in AGES! but thankfully that will be changing in September! I got tickets to see Cold War Kids, and I’m, pretty damn excited! 😀


  1. These are some great songs 🙂 It’s really awful that you’re having a bad day. I’m sending all my love your way ❤ I hope you feel better soon.


  2. Thanks for the tag Lauren! You’ve given me some new songs to listen to as well. I already love Bastille but I need to listen to Hasley’s album, I’ve heard some great things about it already from friends so I really need to get around to downloading it soon!


  3. Omg I would be a little embarrassed to do this after looking at your cool list. I did a shuffle as a test and, kid you not, 6 out of 10 were from musicals. I need new music. I’ll be checking all these songs, I’m so out of touch with music from these past few years lol


    1. Haha, noo! You should never be embarrassed about your music!! I have a lot of questionable things in my iTunes library too 😂 Besides, musicals are pretty rad!! If you like any of the songs let me know and I’ll be happy to send some recs your way 🙂

      Liked by 1 person

  4. I know a lot of these artists but none of the songs. I should probably listen to them but I’m so lazy. 😀
    Thank you so much for tagging me! 😊
