Full Measures Playlist

Hiya peeps!

Music is a HUGE part of the writing process for me.  I can’t really get into the groove unless I have a playlist jamming out.  It puts me in the zone, and brings me to the heart of whatever I’m working on.

So for all of you who are attending the March Madness Embrace Bash, here’s the Full Measures playlist!  There’s one for Josh and one for Ember.  😉  Happy listening!


“Cold” by Aqualung
What you are given can’t be forgotten and never forsaken.

“Little Miss” by Sugarland
Little miss done on love, little miss I give up.
 Little Miss I’ll get tough, don’t you worry about me anymore. 
Little miss checkered dress, little miss one big mess, 
little miss – I’ll take less when I always give so much more.

“#41” by Dave Matthews Band
I will go in this way and find my own way out.
 I won’t tell you to stay, but it’s coming to much more – me.

“Lights” by Ellie Goulding
I had a way then, losing it all on my own.  
I had a heart then by the queen has been overthrown, 
and I’m not sleeping now, the dark is too hard to beat, 
and I’m not keeping now the strength I need to push me.

“Falling or Flying” by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
Are we falling or flying? Are we living or Dying?
I guess we’ll never know.

“Battlefield” by Lea Michele
You and I – we have to let each other go.
We keep holding on but we both know –
What seemed like a good idea has turned into a battlefield.

“Shelter” by Birdy
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on?
I still want to drown whenever you leave
Please teach me gently how to breathe

“Falling Slowly” by Glen Hansard
Falling slowly, eyes that know me – and I can’t go back
Moods that take me and erase me – and I’m painted black.
You have suffered enough and warred with yourself
Its time that you won.

“Drumming Song” by Florence and the Machines
As I move my feet towards your body I can hear this beat 
It fills my head up and gets louder and louder

“Heavy in Your Arms” by Florence and the Machine
And is it worth the wait – all this killing time?
Are you strong enough to stand
protecting both your heart and mine?

“Dead in the Water” Ellie Goulding
If I was not myself and you were someone else
I’d say so much to you and I would tell the truth
‘Cause I can hardly breathe when your hands let go of me

“Broken” By Lifehouse
The broken locks were a warning – you got inside my head
I tried my best to be guarded, I’m an open book instead.
I still see your reflection inside of my eyes
That are looking for purpose, still looking for life.
I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing 
with a broken heart that’s still beating.

“In my veins” by Andrew Belle
Oh, you’re in my veins and I cannot get you out.
Everything will change nothing stays the same.
Nobody here’s perfect, oh, but everyone’s to blame.

“Clarity” (Accoustic) By Zedd feat. Foxes
You are the piece of me I wish I didn’t need
Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don’t know why
If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?
If our love’s insanity, why are you my clarity?

“Something Beautiful” by Needtobreathe
Hey now, this is my desire, consume me like a fire
Cause I just want something beautiful to touch me
I know that I’m in deep ’cause I am down on my knees
waiting for something beautiful.

“Ocean Wide” The Afters
Look outside, it’s already light and the stars ran away with the night
Things were said, words we’ll try to forget
It’s so hard to admit, I know we’ve made mistakes.
I see through all the tears, but that’s what got us here.

“Wonderwall” by Oasis
Back beat the word is on the street that the fire in your heart is out
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before but you never really had a doubt
I don’t believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now.
“This woman’s work” Greg Laswell

I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left.

“Be still” by the Fray
If you forget the way to go and lose where you came from
If no one is standing beside  you, be still and know I am.
Be still and know that I’m with you.
Be still and know I am.

“Secret” by Maroon 5
Watch the sunrise say your goodbyes – off we go
Some conversation, no contemplation – hit the road.
Car overheats jump out of my seat – on the side of the highway
Our road is long, your hold is strong
Please don’t ever let go.
“The Cave” by Mumford and Sons
But I will hold on hope and I won’t let you choke
On the noose around your neck.
And I’ll find strength in pain and I will change my ways
I’ll know my name as it’s called again.
“Give me love” by Ed Sheeran
Give me love like never before
‘Cause lately I’ve been craving more.
And it’s been a while but I still feel the same,
Maybe I should let you go.
You know I’ll fight my corner
And that tonight I’ll call ya, after my blood turns into alcohol.
No, I just wanna hold ya.
“My songs know what you did in the dark” by Fallout boy
I’ve got the scars from tomorrow and I wish you could see
that you’re the antidote to everything except for me.
“Lego House” by Ed Sheeran
And it’s dark in a cold December, but I’ve got you to keep me warm
If you’re broken then I will mend you,
and I’ll keep you sheltered from the storm that’s raging on now.
“Superstar” by Saliva
If it feels good then it feels good and I do it all day
You want me to play?
You best bring your brain, you best bring your money.
“Endlessly” by Ed Sheeran
She is the flame and the fire she’s raging
I’ve been the spark and the war she’s waging.
I, I love that girl.
“Demons” by Imagine Dragons
I wanna hide the truth
I wanna shelter you
But with the beast inside
There’s nowhere we can hide.
“Love Song Requiem” by Trading Yesterday
Wishing I could find a way to wash away the past
Knowing that my heart will break, but at least the pain will last
I die each time you look away.
My heart, my life, will never be the same.
“A drop in the Ocean” by Ron Pope
Just a drop in the ocean, a change in the weather
I was praying that you and I might end up together
It’s like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
But I’m holding you closer than most ’cause you are my heaven.
“Say something” by A Great Big World
Say something – I’m giving up on you.
I’m sorry that I coudn’t get to you.
Anywhere, I would have followed you.
Say something – I’m giving up on you.
“Look after you” by The Fray
It’s always have and never hold.
You’ve begun to feel like home.
What’s mine is yours to leave or take
Whats mine is  yours to make your own.

“You’re the reason I come home” by Ron Pope
And for a long time I remember 
saying prayers for something perfect
Saying prayers for someone kind
You’re the reason that when everything I know falls apart
you’re the reason I come home
Thanks for checking out the Full Measures playlist!

    I've only made it through Ember's songs and I've already added a half-dozen songs to listen to. Thanks!
