· This desire is eating me up...

· I can't escape from a dark reality that has built up to this point.

· I can't hold on much longer ... hurry!

· The walls are closing in, and I'm stuck inside.

· Hold on. I'm coming for you, no matter what it takes.

· I'd even join the bad guys. Just for you.

· Hah! Nice try, but now you're mine.

· It ends here for you.

· You won’t live to see tomorrow’s sunrise.

Beautiful Sadness/Tragedy:

· Why do I keep hoping you'll notice me when you always just look right over my shoulder?

·Will you take care of me? Love me? Heal all my pain? ...that's what I thought.

· You took everything from me, and now you want more?

· I wait forever for the day when you'll see me as more than just a friend.

· All that time ago you said you'd be back. You never came.

· Broken promises and lies build up so fast and soon a wall is built between two people.

· I used to trust you, but now all I see when I look at you is just a backstab waiting to happen.

· You said you wouldn't judge, but you turned around and did what you said you wouldn't.

· It wasn't you; it was me.

· We can never go back to the way things were. I'm sorry, but that's the way it will always be.

· Give me three good reasons why I should take you back!

· Baby, if you ever try to leave again, I swear I'll kill you.

· Watch me leave. I'll walk right out that door and you can't stop me!

· Our relationship went from love to hate in such a small amount of time...

· I need to gather the strength to just let go.

· Your love hurts, stings, and is addicting. Is it poison?

· I'm sorry ... but I just don't love you the way I used to.

· Forgive me for my sins; I'll do anything to redeem myself.

· Listen, that was the past. I've changed and I'll prove it to you!

· Promise that you'll never make me do that again...

· I want you so bad, but you want someone else.

· Every tear that you cry, I promise I'll dry them all.

· What happened to the way that you looked at me? All I see in your eyes now is disgust and hatred.

· Waking up and seeing the empty spot in bed beside me... I wish you were here right now.

· If you were to just come back, I would apologize and try to make everything alright again.

· Another night; another dream... always you... but why?

· Sometimes it’s easier to leave than it is to stay.

First Sights and Feelings:

· On the run with no one to love. That was me before you came along.

· When I first saw you, I felt like I was young and careless once again.

· All those times when we were kids were the same, but that one day I looked at you and everything changed.

· W-Why is my heart beating so fast? My palms are sweating and my body temperature is rising... what is this feeling?

· That first smile was something that I swore I'd never forget.

· I saw him and I just stopped. Everything stopped.

· I passed by, you smiled at me, and immediately I saw the life ahead of us.

· The first time that our hands ever touched... that magic... I want to feel it again.

· A crush lasts an average of 4 months. Once it’s exceeded that, you’re already in love.

· You told me how you wished she’d give you a chance; yet you won’t give me one.

· Put 2 and 2 together, dummy! I LIKE YOU!

· It took you forever to notice me… I wondered if I was invisible.

·I don't have the luxury of telling the truth, but I have the luxury of making you a promise.

Classic Romance/Love:

· What could I possibly love more than laying with you under the stars?

· Your embrace is precious to me; every moment together I can feel a bond becoming unbreakable.

· If I ever had to live a moment without you, I wouldn't be able to stand it.

· There's been a dream of mine for a while... I wish it would come true...

· Sometimes, I'd like to just lie there, looking at each others' faces; just being happy we're together.

· I believed that love was just some cheesy thing that you'd get pushed into when you're older. Boy, did I get proved wrong.

· Ugh. I feel stupid. Why? I feel like doing all that stupid stuff those love songs talk about.

· Finally, my reality is better than my dreams.

· When he asked that one question, I finally knew what life was all about.

· Those words are all I need to be yours forever.

· When I rest my head on your chest, your heartbeat is the sound that makes me feel at peace.

· Don't ever change. Not for me; not for anybody else.

· When butterflies are in love, do they get humans in their tummy?

· If you kiss me, I'll be quiet for you.

· Loved you once, love you still; always have, always will.

· Love is a cycle: You love then you get hurt. You’re hurt then you hate. You hate then you try to forget. You try to forget then you start missing. You are missing… when you fall in love again.

· Love isn’t about finding the perfect person; it’s about seeing an imperfect person perfectly.

· I love everything you hate about yourself.

· Now I know what true love feels like, and I wish I didn't.

The Flirty/Heated Relationship:

· Go ahead and tease me ... I don't mind it.

· Promise you'll be better than any I've had before.

· Once you do this, beware that you're mine forever.

· Don't leave me alone - there's no telling what I could do.

· I won't let go until you do.

· When I was little, I always wondered about these kinds of things...

· So, teach me your way, then.

· Come on... nobody has to know.

· Can you stop being hot please? I'm busy trying to hate you.

· Stop it. You know that’s my weak spot.


· You threw me down over and over, but guess what? I'm back, baby.

· Yeah, we were pretty immature back then... but I've changed. Have you?

· Why so down? Is there anything I could do to cheer you up?

· You see... it's not the big things we remember in the end. It's the little things that matter the most.
