Contents: Don't you just love goodbyes? --
You can always see it comin', but you can never stop it --
She started shakin' to the fine, fine music! --
Making islands where no islands should go --
To readjust you've got to trust that all the fuss is just a minor thing --
The beat is complete with the sound of your world going up in the fire --
Can't help the feeling I could blow through the ceiling --
I'm falling apart to songs about hips and hearts --
There's music and there's people and they're young and alive --
Amazed to stumble where gods get lost --
I wanna always feel like part of this was mine --
In the hands of a rock-and-roll band --
Be my photo bitch and I'll make you rich --
Sunshine, I wouldn't want to be in your shoes --
Lying wide awake in the garden trying to get over your stardom --
To me my life, it just don't make any sense --
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room? --
So if you're lonely, you know I'm here waiting for you --
Don't let them tell you that there's a right way to fall in love --
When what you want is what you're getting --
It takes more than a heartbeat to get me --
Your are everything I want 'cause you are everything I'm not --
Recurring episodes with each and every kiss --
You can't be close enough unless I'm feeling your heartbeat --
Swallowing panic in the face of its force --
By protecting my heart truly, I got lost in the sounds --
Ten days of perfect tunes, the colors red and blue --
This fame thing, I don't get it --
Then we'll turn it up and we'll play a little faster --
The center of the Earth is the end of the world --
Oh, I think I smell a rat! --
There are angels in your angles --
Sometimes I think that I'm bigger than the sound --
So here we are at the last broadcast --
"I'm sorry" won't cut it for the reat of your life --
Perhaps, at last. the song you sing will have meaning --
This in the long way down, and our lives look smaller now --
Live through this and you won't look back --
MTV, what have you done to me? --
Something glorious is about to happen --
As streetlights sing on Audrey's song.
Responsibility: by Robin Benway.

A fun look at high school dating

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-02-04) Good Permalink

A fun look at the end of a high-school girl's 11 month relationship and what happens when her ex-boyfriend writes a hit song about their break-up. More appropriate for a high school library.
