1. "Dear Jamie... Sincerely Me" -- HelloGoodbye


"Should I trust the postage due

To deliver my heart to you?"

2. "Hands Down" -- Dashboard Confessional


“My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me

So won't you kill me

So I die happy

My heart is yours to fill or burst

To break or bury

Or wear as jewelry, whichever you prefer”

3. "Konstantine" -- Something Corporate


"This is because I can spell confusion with a 'k'

And I can like it

It's to dying in another's arms

And why I had to try it

It's to Jimmy Eat World and those nights in my car

When the first star you see may not be a star

I'm not your star

Isn't that what you said

What you thought this song meant?"

4. "Soco Amaretto Lime" -- Brand New


“I’m gonna stay eighteen forever

So we can stay like this forever

And we’ll never miss a party

Cause we keep them going constantly.”

I hope he is a gentleman

And maybe he won’t find out what I know

You were the last good thing about this part of town."

7. "I Will Follow You Into The Dark" -- Death Cab For Cutie


"If Heaven and Hell decide

That they both are satisfied

Illuminate the 'No''s on their vacancy signs

If there's no one beside you

When your soul embarks

Then I will follow you into the dark.”

8. "Everywhere" -- Michelle Branch


"'Cause you're everywhere to me

And when I close my eyes it's you I see

You're everything I know that makes me believe

I'm not alone."

9. "Feeling This" -- Blink 182


"I'm not in the scene

I think I'm fallin' asleep

But then all that it means is

I'll always be dreaming of you."

10. "Collide" -- Howie Day

"Even the best fall down sometimes

Even the wrong words seem to rhyme

Out of the doubt that fills my mind

I somehow find

You and I collide"

11. "Come On" -- Ben Jelen


"Come on

Without you I'll never feel the love inside of me."

12. "Ocean Avenue" -- Yellowcard

We could leave this town and run forever

I know somewhere, somehow we'll be together

Let your waves crash down on me

And take me away, yeah."

"Your smile is like the sun to me

So bright it’s weakening

But so sweet."

Very tightly

And told you what I

Would be dreaming of

There's nothing like you and I

Nothing like you and I."

Oh I'll stay with you when no one else is around."

I think I was blind before I met you

Now I don’t know where I am

I don’t know where I’ve been

But I know where I want to go."
