i'd listen to my common sense if i had some

After several revisions and a lot of thinking, I have compiled the first volume to my life soundtrack.

To the boys who I have befriended and fallen for. To my parents who have let me go and taught me how to let go. To everyone in life I have known. To the Man Upstairs who keeps me going day in and day out. To the people who have helped me realize that I am more than enough. For all the dreams I have that will come true. And for all the dreams I have that won't come true.

Learning to Love Me for Me (track listing with select lyrics)

1) Meredith Edwards - This is the Heartache
It's not like me to become
A wall decoration
But here in the corner at least
All eyes aren't on me
So that's the girl that he's seeing
Think it's time I should be leaving

So this is the heartache I've heard about
Part of love I can live without
Giving it all, loving in vain
So this is the heartache I've heard about
Great future behind me now
As those memories run down my face
This is the heartache

2) Jessica Simpson - You Don’t Have To Let Go
You don't say it
But it's in your eyes
All the fears of good-bye
But I can promise
You'll always have a place, and a way to my heart

All the days that you gave
All the moments you've saved me,
Praying for my life
Sacrificed, just to make me who I am on my own
You don't have to let go

I can live
Cause you lived for me
And I can love
Because you loved me.

3) Tony Lucca - She’s True
She dresses like a clown;
She paints on her frown.
How she does what she will
She tears all the tips off her cigarettes
Smokes just to keep herself still

She’s not afraid to be afraid
And strong enough to know why
Maybe she’ll cry
But she’s true to herself
And she’s true to me, to me
To me she sings like the day
Morning, good morning
The suns come out
Why don’t we play
To me she cries like a child
With no bedtime story
The stories over, meanwhile
She stays true, so true
She offers all she can, and then
She gives me all she’s got
Ready or not

4) Lisa Loeb - Underdog
I like things that are so good;
You are so so good.
I like you,
But I am the underdog;
I am the last in line.
Don't be the enemy;
Don't stand in back of me.
Freezing, boring, wondering where I'll be on my birthday.

5) Cross Canadian Ragweed - 17
Runnin' from your folks, runnin' from the law
Runnin' from love, runnin' from your fears, runnin' from it all
You keep on runnin' boy
You'll run yourself in the ground
You're always seventeen in your hometown

Nobody's gonna miss me
No tears will fall, no one's gonna weep
When I hit that road
My boots are broken, my brain is sore
From keeping up with their little world
I got a heavy load
Gonna leave 'em all just like before
I'm big city bound
You're always seventeen in your hometown

6) Britney Spears - Everytime
And everytime I try to fly
I fall without my wings
I feel so small
I guess I need you baby
And everytime I see you in my dreams
I see your face, it's haunting me
I guess I need you baby

I make believe
That you are here
It's the only way
I see clear
What have I done
You seem to move on easy

7) Jason Mraz - You and I Both
Was it you who spoke the words that things would happen but not to me
Oh things are gonna happen naturally
And taking your advice I'm looking on the bright side
And balancing the whole thing
But often times those words get tangled up in lines
And the bright lights turn to night
Until the dawn it brings
A little bird who'll sing about the magic that was you and me

Cause you and I both loved
What you and I spoke of
What you and I spoke of
Others only dream of the love that I love

See I'm all about them words
Over numbers, unencumbered numbered words
Hundreds of pages, pages, pages forwards
More words then I had ever heard and I feel so alive
Now you and I, you and I
Not so little you and I anymore
And with this silence brings a moral story
more importantly evolving is the glory of a boy

8) Kasey Chambers - Am I Not Pretty Enough
Am I not pretty enough
Is my heart too broken?
Do I cry too much?
Am I too outspoken?
Don’t I make you laugh?
Should I try it harder?
Why do you see right through me?

I live, I breathe, I let it rain on me,
I sleep, I wake, I try hard not to break,
I crave, I love, I’ve waited long enough,
I try as hard as I can.

9) Mariah Carey - Brining’ On the Heartbreak
You're such a secret
Misty eyed and shady
Baby, how you hold the key
Oh, you're like a candle
Your flame slowly fadin'
Burnin' out and burnin' me

Can't you see
Just tryin' to say to you
You're bringin' on the heartache
Takin all the best of me

Oh can't you see
You got the best of me
Oh can't you see

10) Jars of Clay - Sad Clown
You say how's the weather, so I look out the window
To brighten my soul, but I can't control the rain
that keeps falling
Smile on the outside that never comes in
a comedy mystery, irony, tragedy
So I scream "Let the show begin"
You break me open, turn on the light,
Stumble inside with me with me

Do I entertain you
Do I preoccupy you with my wit to cover this lie
Are you mesmerized
Do you think me faithful, do you think me a clown
I picked out this shirt; I put on this hat;
I wore all this paint just for you

11) Something Corporate - Konstantine
I can't imagine all the people that you know
And the places that you go
When the lights are turned down low
And I don't understand all the things you've seen
But I'm slipping in between
You and your big dreams
It's always you
In my big dreams

And you tell me that it's over
Wake up lying in a patch of four leaf clovers
And you’re restless, and I’m naked
You've gotta get out
You can't stand to see me shaking
Could you let me go?
No I didn't think so

And you don't wanna be here in the future
So you say the present's just a pleasant interruption to the past
And you don't wanna look much closer
Cause your afraid to find out all this hope
You had sent into the sky by now had crashed
And it did
Because of me

12) 98 Degrees - You Don’t Know
Who could know the emptiness inside
Every time I see your face
Too many feelings left behind
Do you wonder why
I turn away when you look at me
Never wanting your eyes to see
This desperate heart that knows
How perfect we could be

Baby cause you don't know, how I feel
Livin' my life without you
Baby and you don't know what it's like
Lovin' you all this time
I'll give you all my love, heart and soul
Riskin' it all on a chance
Now when I need you the most, you don't know

All I ever wanted in this world
Baby I found in you
I never felt this way before
But I can't break through
And now I lie awake, alone at night
So afraid now to close my eyes
Just one more dream of you
I'll carry here inside

13) N Sync - Just the Two of Us
You see I toss and turn when I'm alone
And I just can't wait 'til you get home
Waiting for your call (ooh) 'cause tonight we're gonna do it all
Girl it's just the two of us
'Cause I'm thinking 'bout you day and night
And I just can't get you off my mind
When you get a minute (ooh) baby I was thinking we could hook up
It's just the two of us, the two of us
'Cause in a room full of people you're the only one around
And nothing in this world could ever bring us down
Baby I'll be there telling you I care
This I swear
Girl it's just the two of us, the two of us

Baby I wonder if you feel the same as I do
I wonder if you're going through the things I'm going through
I sent you flowers on a Saturday (Saturday)
Inside's a letter with a message and no name
See I just love the feeling, knowing that I can make you smile
And I haven't felt that way about someone in quite awhile
Just listen to these words I have to say (ooh)
Just take a chance (take a chance)

14) Britney Spears - Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman
I used to think
I had the answers to everything
But now I know
That life doesn't always go my way, yeah

Feels like I'm caught in the middle
That's when I realize

I'm not a girl, not yet a woman
All I need is time
A moment that is mine
While I'm in between
I'm not a girl

There is no need to protect me
It's time that I
Learn to face up to this on my own, oh

I've seen so much more than you know now
So don't tell me to shut my eyes

15) Beth Orton - Thinking About Tomorrow
Tired, but I ain't sleepin'
Thinking about some sad affair
And why I should be leavin'
'Cause some of these thoughts
Only seem to take me out of here

Yeah, these habits are so hard to break
They're the most easy to make
These habits are so hard to break
And the most easy to make

Thinking about tomorrow
Tired from all the time I spared
On what I still believe in
When none of my talk
Ever seems to get me anywhere

16) Emily Richards - I Need Someone
Winter ends; a new life begins.
But I am in the dark again.
Color fades, just another day.
I humbly hope the shadow doesn't stay.
Pain go away.

We stand before a paper throne.
We catch the blame and they those the stones.
If they only knew, how much I loved you,
They could never be so cold, so cruel.

I need someone to hold onto.
And I need someone who can help me open a window
I need you.

17) Feeling Left Out - Goodbye My Friend
Forever is too long to wait
But you had to take that great escape

Tries to fly only to find he will hit the ground
With one motion it comes to an end so goodbye, my friend

Remember the days we stared at the sky
At the clouds and ships that passed us by
The monkey bars and the jungle gym
Seemed too high too high for him

18) Kina - Girl From the Gutter
For all the things you said I'd never do
For all the things you said that were untrue
For all the times you made me feel alone
Said I'd never make it on my own

Things are lookin' up for me now
Seems like Karma's makin' its rounds
Its my turn now, won't be held down no
Karma's gonna visit you too
You gotta pay for the things you put me through
I hope you do, I hope you do, yeah, yeah

I hope your hell is filled with magazines
And on every page you see a big picture of me
And under every picture the caption should read
Not bad for a girl from the gutter like me

For all the times you said "I got your back"
For all the times you stabbed me
For all the times you tried to hurt my pride
For all the pain I held down deep inside
