[mix] weight of it all / a joe/nick mix  
I've had this mix for quite a while, as it served as inspiration for [Leans on Me] Like a Rootless Tree . Photo used in cover art taken by Red Camera on DeviantArt.

Memories of You|Ryan Adams
Memories of you that I just don't have
Right now, I make them up.
One cup of wanting you
Two cups of hoping somehow
These things come true
While I'm staring at pictures of you.

September|Chris Daughtry
Has it all gone to waste? All the promises we made
One by one they vanish just the same

Of all the things I still remember
Summer's never looked the same
The years go by and time just seems to fly
But the memories remain.

I Remember|Damien Rice
I remember it well
Taxied out of a storm
To watch you perform
And my ships were sailing
I remember it well
I was stood in your line
And your mouth, your mouth, your mind...

I hope that my sanity covers the cost
To remove the stain of my love
in paper maché
God will forgive me
But I, I whip myself with scorn, scorn

I remember December,
And I wanna hear what you have to say about me
Hear if you're gonna live without me
I wanna hear what you want
What the hell do you want?

Rootless Tree|Damien Rice
What I want from us is to empty our minds
We fake, and fuss, and fracture the times
We go blind when we've needed to see
And it leans on me like a rootless tree.

Well fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
And all we've been through
I said leave it, leave it, leave it
Theres nothing in you.
And if you hate me, hate me, hate me, then hate me so good
That you can let me out, let me out, let me out
of this hell when you’re around

Weight of it All|Matt Nathanson
I spent days, stupid, nailed to your floor
and I spent nights pushed against you
just trying to keep warm.
But you don't know me at all.

Show me where the sun comes through the sky
and I’ll show you where the rain gets in
and I’ll show you hurricanes
and the way that summer fades
beneath the weight of it all.

For Blue Skies|Strays Don't Sleep
Just between you and I,
you and me and the satellites,
I never believed you, I only wanted to.
Before all of this, what did I miss?
Do you ever get homesick?
I cant get used to it, I’ll never get used to it.

Could I have saved you?
Would that have betrayed you?
I wanna burn this film--you alone with those pills
What you couldn't do I will. I forgive you.
I’ll forgive you for blue skies.

Everything You Say Sounds Like Gospel|Matt Nathanson
I feel cheated,
tangled up repeatedly,
owed a piece of everything.
And still you come around,
with scissors to cut me down.

And its all I can do to win for you

The Ballad of Love and Hate|The Avett Brothers
Hate stumbles forward and leans in the door.
Weary head hung, eyes to the floor.
He says "Love, I'm sorry", and she says, "What for?"
"I'm yours and that's it, Whatever.
I should not have been gone for so long.
I'm yours and that's it, forever."

You're mine and that's it, forever.

Which to Bury; Us or the Hatchet|Relient K
What happened to us
I heard that it's me we should blame
what happened to us
why didn't you stop me from turning out this way?
