I am not in love with you; I am an addict. 

Without you there is pain, and with you, 

there is only fear of pain.

-Francesca Roux

Together (The XX)

You said you don’t have to speak 
I can hear you 
I can’t feel all the things you’ve ever felt before 
I said it’s been a long time 
Since someone looked at me that way 
It’s like you knew me 
And all the things I couldn’t say 
Together, to be 
Together and be 

Girl Crazy (Hot Chocolate)

'Cause I'm girl crazy
I'm girl crazy
I'm girl crazy
For a girl crazy
I'm girl crazy
Crazy for a girl who's boy crazy
For a boy like me - oh yeah

I don't care that the clothes that she wears
Isn't amazing or debonair. All I want is love and affection
For whatever direction
I don't care
I don't mind if she can't dance. I'll teach her to dance in every way
And if by chance she's new to romance
I'll teach her to make love night and day

Youth Of Today (The Youth)

The youth of today has got lots to say It’s our life our future Because we’re living today So don’t blame the youth You know that it’s true So don’t blame the youth

Don’t take us for fools

Love Is A Battlefield (Pat Benatar)

When I'm losing control
Will you turn me away
Or touch me deep inside
And when all this gets old
Will it still feel the same
There's no way this will die
But if we get much closer
I could lose control
And if your heart surrenders
You'll need me to hold

We are young
Heartache to heartache we stand
No promises
No demands
Love is a battlefield

Tengo su chancla. 
Es de noche. 
El mar está frío. 
Veo las estrellas. 
¿Dónde esta la chica?
Dile que sí, 
aunque te estés muriendo de miedo, 
aunque después te arrepientas, 
porque de todos modos te vas a arrepentir toda la vida 
si le contestas que no. 

-Gabriel García Márquez
I feel like I’ve swallowed a cloudy sky

-Haruki Murakami, “Sputnik Sweetheart”

I'm A Believer (The Monkees)

Had I told the sea
What I felt for you,
It would have left its shores,
Its shells,
Its fish,
And followed me.

Nizar Qabbani, In The Summer

The Temptation of St Anthony - Salvador Dalí

Get scared. It will do you good. Smoke a bit, stare blankly at some ceilings, beat your head against some walls, refuse to see some people, paint and write. Get scared some more. Allow your little mind to do nothing but function. Stay inside, go out - I don’t care what you’ll do; but stay scared as hell. You will never be able to experience everything. So, please, do poetical justice to your soul and simply experience yourself. 
Albert Camus, Notebooks, 1951-1959

Don't Cry (Guns N' Roses)

Don't you cry tonight
I still love you baby
Don't you cry tonight
Don't you cry tonight
There's a heaven above you baby
And don't you cry tonight

Was she really beautiful? 

Was she at least what they call attractive? 

She was exasperation, she was torture.

Vladimir Nabokov, Ada, or Ardor: A Family Chronicle

I bought plum blossoms
more for the name
than for the color;
I buy lipstick that way, too.
In other words,
if it sounds like a poem,
I’ll take it.

Do I Wanna Know? (Arctic Monkeys)

Have you got colour in your cheeks? 
Do you ever get that fear that you can't shift the type that sticks around like summat in your teeth? 
Are there some aces up your sleeve? 
Have you no idea that you're in deep? 
I've dreamt about you nearly every night this week 
How many secrets can you keep? 
Cause there's this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow and I play it on repeat 
Until I fall asleep 
Spilling drinks on my settee 

The Edge Of Heaven (Wham!)

I would lock you up
But I could not bear to hear you
Screaming to be set free
I would chain you up
If I'd thought you'd swear
The only one that mattered was me, me, me
I would strap you up
But don't worry baby
You know I wouldn't hurt you 'less you wanted me to

It's too late to stop
Won't the heavens save me?
My daddy said the devil looks a lot like you

You say I'm dangerous
But don't worry baby
I get excited at the things that you do
And there's a place for us in a dirty movie
'Cos no-one does it better than me and you

Losing My Religion (R.E.M.)
