The Worst Breakup Mixtape Vol. 1

Day 12 – Describe your life using only the titles of your favorite songs.
Of course, with credits!

I remember¹ walking in the rain to a café to write down price thoughts in public.²

Making progress³, looking for Love.⁴
One⁵ day of fate⁶, You Found Me⁷ drowning⁸, black⁹.

All my life¹⁰, I was on my way to find you ¹¹, my favorite faded fantasy¹².
But gravity¹³ carried away ¹⁴ black tears. ¹⁵

You and I¹⁶, the crow and the butterfly¹⁷,We both made promises¹⁸, promises(we couldn’t keep)¹⁹.

As I lay me down²⁰, waiting in vain²¹ for the last train home²², comfortably numb²³,
Keep me in your heart²⁴, mujer amante²⁵.

Winter²⁶ substitutes²⁷ your touch²⁸.An empty apartment²⁹ can’t hide³⁰ the ghost of you.³¹

You, The One That Got away³², my unchained melody³³, will always be more than a memory.³⁴
