  4. "So girl leave your boots by the bed we ain't leavin' this room, Til someone needs medical help or the magnolias bloom" Cover Me Up by Jason Isbell
  5. "The wheel is turning and you can't slow down, You can't let go and you can't hold on, You can't go back and you can't stand still, If the thunder don't get you then the lightning will." The Wheel by the Grateful Dead
  6. "It's how I live. You got me here, Locked in this bathroom full of tears, And I have begged for you and I have borrowed, But I've been the only sister to my own sorrow." Just One Of The Guys by Jenny Lewis

  12.

Are You The One That I've Been Waiting For? by Nick Cave
    this song kills me, always has. the entire song is lyrical perfection but i chose this one.
