After feeling heartbroken over Ben Gibbard (frontman of [mp3com-artist]Death Cab for Cutie[/mp3com-artist] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Postal Service[/lastfm]) and Zooey Deschanel’s break-up, I decided to listen to break-up songs sung solely by Ben Gibbard or Zooey Deschanel.
Death Cab for Cutie – A Lack of Color
“All the girls in every girlie magazine
Can’t make me feel any less alone
I’m reaching for the phone
To call at 7:03
And on your machine I slur a plea
For you to come home
But i know it’s too late
I should have given you a reason to stay
Given you a reason to stay.”
She & Him – Gonna Get Along Without You Now
“Got along without you before I met you,
Gonna get along without you now.
Gonna find somebody that’s twice as cute,
Cause I didn’t like you anyhow.”
The Postal Service – Nothing Better
“I know that I have made mistakes and I swear
I’ll never wrong you again.
You’ve got a lure I can’t deny,
But you’ve had your chance so say goodbye.
Say goodbye “
