Terra Elan McVoy
“I wasn't aware that was how I felt, either, until it was out. And now that I've said it like that, I'm not exactly sure it is how I feel. But this isn't a piece of paper I can crumple up and throw away. they aren't words I can cross out to start over. Now they're out, and I know they'll hang here, between us, maybe forever.”
Terra Elan McVoy, Being Friends with Boys

Ed Sheeran

Mark  Rice
“Things began to go wrong when I was seventeen. My band’s twenty-year-old lead guitarist earned seven years in jail for a drug-fuelled spree of violence. The other band members were quick to let go of their musical dreams, but I never did. They did the ‘mature’ thing: after writing off the band as a teenage fantasy, they got real jobs and made some money. They called it growing up. I called it giving up.”
Mark Rice, Metallic Dreams

“I said I'm selfish, I'm a liar and I'm broken
Shit runs through my head every day that I would never tell anyone
You're just like me
The only difference is that I'm honest enough to scream my flaws in the lines of this song”
Real Friends

“Real bands save fans, real fans save bands.”
Michael Clifford

And telling myself that everything's going to work out

Opening up every cut that should be a scar by now”

I've found a girl that makes me lose control
Every night's like the first night
Never gettin' old”

“In the wake of my broken dreams
In the dirt and the dust and the days that felt like weeks.
I found the person that I’m meant to be
‘Cause when I felt like giving up
When death was closing in
I shut my eyes
And black out the darkness with light from inside
I’ve given more
Than what I’ve got
I’ve given all
Of what I’m not
I’ve watched this war consume all that we could become
Facing my fears in the dark
But if I die
Before it’s done
Please take these words
My final thoughts
The only way to shine your light is in the dark.
Never let life kill your spark
This is the fallout
Yeah it’s the end of the world
We’ll spread the noise to everyone and let them all know you heard
A system meltdown
It’s time we expose
The 'cause of chaos is our own
I’ve given more
Than what I’ve got
I’ve given all
Of what I’m not
I’ve watched this war consume all that we could become
Facing my fears in the dark
But if I die
Before it’s done
Please take these words
My final thoughts
The only way to shine your light is in the dark.
Never let life kill your spark
Never let life kill your spark
Never let life kill your spark
Facing my fears in the dark
I’ve given more
Than what I’ve got
I’ve given all
Of what I’m not
I’ve watched this war consume all that we could become
If I die
Before it’s done
Please take these words
My final thoughts
The only way to shine your light is in the dark.
Never let life kill your spark..”
Crown The Empire

5 Seconds of Summer
“Then one day in school, I turned round to the others and said, 'Dude, what if we started a band like All Time Low?”
5 Seconds of Summer, Hey, Let's Make a Band!: The Official 5SOS Book

“Yeah,
You rocked my world forever
I know you still remember
How we felt before
Yeah,
We should be together
'Cause nothing could be better
Than the way we were
Baby, let's go back to the way we were

Let's turn back the clock
This time we'll take it slow
You can stay the night,
This time I won't let go
And when the morning comes,
We can start all over, over again

Why did we say goodbye?
Let's go back tonight”
The Summer Set

“Oh, the truth I must tell
Is I'm lonely as hell
Still looking for myself”
The Summer Set

Nick Hornby
“There were only seven years between the first and last Beatles albums. That's nothing, seven years, when you think of how their hairstyles changed and their music changed. Some bands now go seven years without hardly bothering to do anything.”
Nick Hornby, A Long Way Down

5 Seconds of Summer
“So this book is like a thank you. We want everyone to know the story of how four Western Sydney teenagers picked up their instruments and dreamt of being one of the biggest bands in the world.”
5 Seconds of Summer, Hey, Let's Make a Band!: The Official 5SOS Book

“I earned my place,
With the tidal waves.
I can't escape this feeling,
That something ain't right.

I called my name
As I crashed the gates,
Still I can't escape this feeling
That something ain't right.”
All Time Low

“You'll spend every Saturday night on the bathroom floor with no recollection of the night before
You're a train wreck and everything that's in between
Being alone doesn't seem so bad to me”

“A place for the newly weds and nearly deads
I'm counting the stones I hope you know I love you.
Got a lot of friends 6 feet under us.
Counting down the days till we join the party.
Thoughts of your nightmare projected through mine...
Breathing in these lies is no surprise
These evil things are all we know
Lets take these lives where we want to go.
The future is our prize, when the stars align.
Ghouls and ghosts will haunt my soul but they will never take me.
Before I go, I want to show that we can make a difference.
We've got some dumb perceptions.

But I've got the death connection...

All the hate that you have...
Just throw it away
Life is meant for more,
But we're too distracted..
Too caught up in the anger and judgment..
Caught up in the web of lies
I've heard these things keep our blood boiling,
Keeps us alive, and moving forward...
If that's the case I was born a dead man.
And I'm forever a ghost.
Hatred is something that we're brought up to see.
Now everybody's looking at me
I hope they know...
They won't get their satisfaction.”
Ghost Town

Keith Richards
“Classic of '43. Don't knock it. A Vintage year.”
Keith Richards

“Keith Richards on change—"It's gotta go up and down. Otherwise, you won't know the difference. It would be just a bland, straight line, like lookin' at a heart machine. And when that straight line happens, baby, you're dead.”
Jessica Pallington West, What Would Keith Richards Do?: Daily Affirmations from a Rock and Roll Survivor

Noah  Wareness
“The patches are the stories. Hold onto that. And the muddy zigzag of ducktape against the cracked doorglass. There's four kids who sleep here, a nuff for the fingers on each otherses hands. There's room in each of them for one important thing. They're a band. It's not they're in a band. They're a band. Four spikes of ducktape, up and down, like mountain peaks or a sawblade. Every band's got a sign, something to sew on your jacket, gouge on the wall at a show. Four spikes up and down say MEATHEADS, and you picked a fucked window to knock at, tourist. They're the best band in the world.”
Noah Wareness

Carrie Brownstein
“Even then, I could still appreciate the moment of simply making sounds with a group of people. There is another place you go to in those instances, and it feels vast, refreshing, like you're creating your own air to breathe. And even though it's never going to happen again and there's a palpable sense of mediocrity, there's still a connection that you wouldn't have otherwise, to the sound, to the people.”
Carrie Brownstein

“Let me set it straight, I've done some shit,
And maybe I ain't too proud of it
The monster in your bed
You were begging me "please don't stop!"
Said that I'm a douchebag, won't call back
The worst hangover you ever had
Felt so good at first, you knew that it could never last
Wanna wash the dirt off my hands, wanna get this all off my chest
But I'm no good at saying sorry... woah oh!

I didn't mean to fuck you over,
I just want to have some fun”
The Summer Set

5 Seconds of Summer
“The first song Ben taught me was Deep Purple's 'Smoke on the Water', when i was 10, and I would play it on the top string with one finger. I did it so much that there was a massive crease in the skin and i think I must have driven everyone crazy, playing that same song all the time,”
5 Seconds of Summer, Hey, Let's Make a Band!: The Official 5SOS Book

“Jack, be nimble, Jack, be quick
Jill's a little whore and her alibis are dirty tricks”

Switchfoot
“Maybe I'm overcast. And maybe all my lucks washed down the drain.”

“We put the fun in dysfunctional.”
