1. Hide and Seek -- Imogen Heap
Frederick, being dumped.Ransom notes keep falling out your mouth.
Mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut-outs.
Speak no feeling, no I don't believe you.
You don't care a bit. You don't care a bit.
2. Almost Lover -- A Fine Frenzy
Anne, dumping.I'd never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
3. Even Angels Fall -- Jessica Riddle
Frederick, trying to forget, and failing.You found hope
You found faith
Found how fast she could take it away
Found true love
Lost your heart
Now you don't know who you are
4. Set the Fire to the Third Bar -- Snow Patrol
Anne, not even bothering to try.I find the map and draw a straight line
Over rivers, farms, and state lines
The distance from 'A' to where you'd be
It's only finger-lengths that I see
I touch the place where I'd find your face
My fingers in creases of distant dark places
5. Cold as Ice -- Foreigner
Frederick, seeing Anne again.You're as cold as ice
You're willing to sacrifice our love
You never take advice
Someday you'll pay the price, I know
6. Samson -- Regina Spektor
Anne, seeing Frederick again. You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth
I have to go, I have to go
7. Antebellum -- Vienna Teng
Both, at Lyme.I know the border lines we drew between us
Keep the weapons down,
Keep the wounded safe;
I know our antebellum innocence
Was never meant to see the light of our armistice day.
8. All Over You -- The Spill Canvas
Frederick, in Bath.I am easily make believe,
just dress me up in what you want me to be.
I'll take back what I've been saying for quite some time now.
I gotta feel you in my bones again,
I'm all over you.
I'm not over you.
9. Everything You Want -- Vertical Horizon
Anne, with Mr. Elliott. He's everything you want
He's everything you need
He's everything inside of you
That you wish you could be
He says all the right things
At exactly the right time
But he means nothing to you
And you don't know why
10. You're All I Have -- Snow Patrol
Frederick, writing the letter.Give me a chance to hold on
Just give me something to hold onto
It's so clear now that you are all that I have
I have no fear 'cause you are all that I have
11. Gravity -- Vienna Teng
Anne, reading the letter.Hey, love
I am a constant satellite
Of your blazing sun
I obey your law of gravity
This is the fate you've carved on me
12. I Will Always Return -- Bryan Adams
Both, in their happy ending. Now I know it's true
My every road leads to you
And in the hour of darkness darlin'
Your light gets me through
Oh I hear the wind call your name
The sound that leads me home again
It sparks up the fire - a flame that still burns
Oh, it's to you - I will always return
