Turn the magic on
to me she said…
everything you want it’s a dream away
we are legends
The Adventure – Angels & Airwaves
I want to have the same last dream again,
The one where I wake up and I’m alive.
Just as the four walls close me within,
My eyes are woken up with pure sunlight.
I’m the first to know.
My dearest friends,
Even if your hope has burned with time,
Anything that’s dead shall be re-grown.
And your vicious pain, your warning sign,
You will be fine.
1000 Nights – Frenship
When the fever’s gone
And the rose to dust
I touchdown Sunday
To tie the loose ends up
With a pocket full of
That gypsy stuff
I heard you calling me, calling me, calling me
Through the dissonance
I’ve been known to run
Just to feel the rush
But the dying sun
Illuminates so much
Sunrise Avenue – Dreamer
Have you ever felt like a prisoner
But you haven’t escape yet?
You’re a rebel and not a follower
And your destin to make it
Have you got, have you got, got, a heart full of dreams?
‘Cause I got, yeah, I got, got a heart full of dreams
Have you got, have you got, got, a heart full of dreams?
‘Cause I got, yeah, got a heart full of dreams
Follow Your Fire – Kodaline
We had the songs that we sang along to
You had the moves to make me dance with you
I always saw you reaching and catching stars
We had the thing that everyone wanted
Hung on your sleeve, you wore your heart on it
Did you get out I’m wondering where you are?
(Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
I Gotta Feeling – The Black Eyed Peas
I gotta feeling that tonight’s gonna be a good night

That tonight’s gonna be a good, good night
On Top Of The World – Imagine Dragons
If you love somebody
Better tell them why they’re here ’cause
They just may run away from you
You’ll never know what went well

I’ve had the deepest rivers
You can have it all but not til you move it
Now take it in but don’t look down
Legendary – Welshly Arms
Take a look around me
Taking pages from a magazine
Been looking for the answer
Ever since we were seventeen
You know the truth can be a weapon
To fight this world of ill intentions
A new answer to the same question
How many times will you learn the same lesson?
I think they got it all wrong
We just got to hold on
And on, and on, and on
‘Cause we’re gonna be legends
Gonna get their attention
What we’re doing here ain’t just scary
It’s about to be legendary
Yeah we’re gonna be legends
Gonna teach ’em all a lesson
Got this feeling that we’re so sweet caring
It’s about to be legendary
Of Monsters and Men – Dirty Paws
Jumping up and down the floor
My head is an animal
And once there was an animal
It had a son that mowed the lawn
The son was an OK guy
They had a pet dragonfly
The dragonfly it ran away
But it came back with a story to say
Her dirty paws and furry coat
She ran down the forest slope
The forest of talking trees
They used to sing about the birds and the bees
The bees had declared a war
The sky wasn’t big enough for them all
The birds, they got help from below
From dirty paws and the creatures of snow
The Script – Hall of Fame
Yeah, you could be the greatest
You can be the best
You can be the King Kong banging on your chest
You could beat the world
You could beat the war
You could talk to God, go banging on his door
You can throw your hands up
You can beat the clock
You can move a mountain
You can break rocks
You can be a master
Don’t wait for luck
Dedicate yourself and you can find yourself
Standing in the hall of fame
And the world’s gonna know your name
‘Cause you burn with the brightest flame
And the world’s gonna know your name
And you’ll be on the walls of the hall of fame
Heroes – David Bowie
I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins
Like dolphins can swim
Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, forever and ever
Oh, we can be heroes just for one day
I, I will be King
And you, you will be Queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be heroes just for one day
We can be us just for one day

4. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be “positive” all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.
For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life.
“F**k positivity,” Mark Manson says. “Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it.” In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate.
He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.
