This is a list of 15 songs that are haunting me for the past few months. Some of them are with me for years because the lyrics can sometimes cut very deep...

1. Florence and The Machine - Over the Love

"Because you're a hard soul to save
With an ocean in my way
But I'll get around it...''

2. Kings of Leon - Closer

''She took my heart,
I think she took my soul.
With the moon I run
Far from the carnage
Of the fiery sun...''

When we're becoming something else
I think it's time to walk away...''
