“The Climb” by Miley Cyrus There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonnawanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side It's the climb
“Somewhere Only we Know” by Keane I walked across, an empty landI knew the pathway like the back of my handI felt the earth, beneath my feetSat by the river and it made me complete……………………………………………… I came across, a fallen elm tree,I felt the branches; are they looking at me?Is this the place, we used to love?Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?
“Firework” by Katy Perry You don't have to feel like a waste of space You're original, cannot be replaced If you only knew what the future holds After a hurricane comes a rainbow Maybe your reason why all the doors are closed So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow And when it's time, you'll know You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine Just own the night like the 4th of July 'Cause baby you're a firework Come on, show 'em what you're worth Make 'em go, oh, oh, oh As you shoot across the sky
“American Honey” by Lady Antebellum Steady as a preacher Free as a weed Couldn't wait to get going But wasn't quite ready to leave So innocent, pure and sweet American honey There's a wild, wild whisper Blowin' in the wind Callin' out my name Like a long lost friend Oh, I miss those days As the years go by Oh, nothin' sweeter than summertime And American honey
“Hard Day’s Night” by the Beatles It's been a hard day's night And I've been working like a dog It's been a hard day's night I should be sleeping like a log But when I get home to you I find the things that you do Will make me feel alright.
“Rhythm of Love” by the Plain White T’s My heart beats like a drum A guitar string to the strum A beautiful song to be sung She's got blue eyes deep like the sea That roll back when she's laughing at me She rises up like the tide The moment her lips meet mine
“Fireflies” by Owl City 'Cause they'd fill the open air And leave teardrops everywhere You'd think me rude But I would just stand and stare I'd like to make myself believe That planet Earth turns slowly It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep 'Cause everything is never as it seems 'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs From ten thousand lightning bugs As they tried to teach me how to dance A foxtrot above my head A sock hop beneath my bed A disco ball is just hanging by a thread
“Love is a Battlefield” by Pat Benatar You're beggin' me to go, you're makin' me stay Why do you hurt me so bad? It would help me to know Do I stand in your way, or am I the best thing you've had? Believe me, believe me, I can't tell you why But I'm trapped by your love, and I'm chained to your side We are young, heartache to heartache we stand No promises, no demands Love is a battlefield
“American Boy” by Estelle & Kanye West*BONUS: What’s the rhyme scheme?! Can we get away this weekend. Take me to Broadway. Let's go shopping baby then we'll go to a Cafe. Let's go on the subway. Take me to your hood. I neva been to Brooklyn and I'd like to see what's good. Dressed in all your fancy clothes. Sneaker's looking Fresh to Death I'm lovin those Shell Toes. Walkin that walk. Talk that slick talk. I'm liking this American Boy. American Boy. [Chorus:] Take me on a trip, I'd like to go some day. Take me to New York, I'd love to see LA. I really want to come kick it with you. You'll be my American Boy
