The Walters - I love you so
1 cup fresh wounds from your cheating ex
2 tablespoons total denial
1/4 teaspoon too numb to cry
5 reasons to stay, sliced
5 1/2 reasons to leave
2 cups self respect, minced
Fuck them. Plug in your earphones. Dial up the volume. Lie down someplace warm. Someplace safe. Curl up in a ball. Crying is optional. Simmer in the bitter sweet comfort of your choice to leave. Let sit for 3 days mourning period. Garnish with alcohol, if necessary.

LP - Lost on You

1 thick cloud of smoke
2 glasses unexplicable feeling of being incomplete
4 pounds memories, minced
2 1/2 cups unwanted freedom
1 longing for a home
Stir everything into one giant bowl of highs and lows, until mixture has a soul crushing consistency. Serve cold.
Lianne La Havas - Ghost
1/2 pound friendship
1/2 pound misunderstood affections
5 unanswered questions, juiced
2 cups self-blame
Firstly, pretend that you're okay. There was nothing there in the first place. Ask self if there was anything there in the first place. Second, beat self up for messing up 1/2 pound friendship. Pour 5 unanswered questions whenever you meet them but only silently, since you want to seem cool despite the 1/2 pound misunderstood affections. Sprinkle with miserable silence. (And yes, almost-relationship breakups are just as painful.)
James Bay - Let It Go
2 seemingly compatible people
1 gaping hole
Sit against a wall or take an evening walk. Bawl your eyes out for 2 seemingly compatible people who grew apart. Try to understand that it was for you both. Take a grip of what you want and what that person needs. Listen with a warm beverage. Stare mindlessly at stars or open fields. Recover who you were before the relationship. Start again.
