  3. 3. I can still see the light at the end of the tunnel shine through the dark times even when I lose my mind But it feels like no one in the world is listening and I can't ever seem to make the right decisions I walk around in the same haze I'm still caught in my same ways I'm losing time in these strange days but somehow I always know the right things to say I don't know what time it is or who’s the one to blame for this Do I believe what I can't see And how do you know which way the wind blows Cause I can feel it all around I'm lost between the sound And just when I think I know, there she goes [Chorus] Goodbye for now Goodbye for now So long Goodbye for now (I'm not the type to say I told you so) Goodbye for now So long (I think the hardest part of holding on is letting it go) When will we sing A new song A new song We’re still smilin' as the day goes by and how come nobody ever knows the reasons why Bury you deep so far you can't see If you're like me who wears a broken heart on your sleeve Pains and struggles that you know so well Either time don't It can't or it just won't tell I'm not the type to say I told you so I think the hardest part of holding on is letting it go I don't know what time it is or who’s the one to blame for this Do I believe what I can't see And how do you know which way the wind blows Cause I can feel it all around I'm lost between the sound And just when I think I know there she goes Goodbye for now Goodbye for now So long Goodbye for now (I'm not the type to say I told you so) Goodbye for now So long (I think the hardest part of holding on is letting it go) When will we sing A new song A new song And you can sing until there's no song left (song left) And I can scream until the world goes deaf (goes deaf) For every other word left unsaid you should have took the time to read the sign and see what it meant In some ways everybody feels alone so if the burden is mine then I can carry my own If joy really come s in the morning tim e then I'm gonna sit back and wait until the next sunrise...(fa de) Goodbye for now Goodbye for now So long Goodbye for now ( I'm not the Type to say I told you so) Goodbye for now So long (I think th e hardest part Of holding on is le tting it go) [Repeat 3x] When will we sing A new song A new song When will we sing (When will we sing) A new song A new song (Away) [Repeat 3x] (I runaway)
  4. 4. “ Taking the kids from our districts, forcing them to kill one another while we watch—this is the Capitol’s way of reminding us how totally we are at their mercy. How little chance we would stand of surviving another rebellion.” (18-19) “ With one sweep of my arm, I push her behind me. ‘I volunteer!’ I gasp. ‘I volunteer as tribute!’…In some districts, in which winning the reaping is such a great honor, people are eager to risk their lives…” (22) “ My sister and my mother come first. I reach out to Prim and she climbs on my lap, her arms around my neck, head on my shoulder, just like she did when she was a toddler. My mother sits beside me and wraps her arms around us. For a few minutes, we say nothing. Then I start telling them all the things they must remember to do, now that I will not be there to do them for them.” (34) “ I can’t win. Prim must know that in her heart.” (36)
  5. 5. So quiet another wasted night, the television steals the conversation exhale, another wasted breath, again it goes unnoticed. Please tell me you're just feeling tired cause if it's more than that I feel that I might break out of touch, out of time. Please send me anything but signals that are mixed cause I can't read your rolling eyes out of touch, are we out of time? Close lipped another goodnight kiss is robbed of all it's passion, your grip another time, is slack it leaves me feeling empty. I'll wait until tomorrow maybe you'll feel better then maybe we'll be better then so what's another day when I can't bear these nights of t houghts of going on without you this mood of yours is temporary it seems worth the wait to see your smile again out of the corner of my eye won't be the only way you're looki ng at me then.
  6. 6. “ Peeta sighs. ‘Well, there is this one girl. I’ve had a crush on her ever since I can remember. But I’m pretty sure she didn’t know I was alive until the reaping.’” (130) “’ Katniss,’ he says. I go over to him and brush the hair back from his eyes. ‘Thanks for finding me.’ ‘ You would have found me if you could,’ I say. His forehead’s burning up. Like the medicine’s having no effect at all. Suddenly, out of nowhere, I’m scared he’s going to die…Impulsively, I lean forward and kiss him, stopping his words. This is probably overdue anyway since he’s right, we are supposed to be madly in love.” (260) “ His hand brushes the loose strands of my hair off my forehead. Unlike the staged kisses and caresses so far, this gesture seems natural and comforting. I don’t want him to stop and he doesn’t. He’s still stroking my hair when I fall asleep.” (265)
  7. 7. You've gotta swim Swim for your life Swim for the music That saves you When you're not so sure you'll survive You gotta swim And swim when it hurts The whole world is watching You haven't come this far To fall off the earth The currents will pull you Away from your love Just keep your head above I found a tidal wave Begging to tear down the dawn Memories like bullets They fired at me from a gun A crack in the armor I swim to brighter days Despite the absence of sun Choking on salt water I'm not giving in I swim You gotta swim Through nights that won't end Swim for your families Your lovers your sisters And brothers and friends Yeah you've gotta swim Through wars without cause Swim for the lost politicians Who don't see their greed as a flaw The currents will pull us Away from our love Just keep your head above I found a tidal wave Begging to tear down the dawn Memories like bullets They fired at me from a gun Cracking me open now I swim for brighter days Despite the absence of sun Choking on salt water I'm not giving in Well I'm not giving in I swim You gotta swim Swim in the dark There's no shame in drifting Feel the tide shifting and wait for the spark Yeah you've gotta swim Don't let yourself sink Just find the horizon I promise you it's not as far as you think The currents will drag us away from our love Just keep your head above Swim Just keep your head above
  8. 8. “ But by afternoon, I know the end is coming. My legs are shaking and my heart is too quick…I finally tumble to the ground unable to get up. I let my eyes close… This is an okay place to die , I think. My fingertips make small swirling patterns in the cool, slippery earth. I love mud , I think. How many times I’ve tracked game with the help of its soft, readable surface. Good for bee stings, too. Mud. Mud. Mud! My eyes fly open and I did my fingers into the earth…It’s all I can do not to plunge my face into the water and gulp down as much as I can hold.” (170) “ Probably this whole segment of the woods has been armed with precision launchers that are concealed in trees or rocks. Somewhere, in a cool and spotless room, a Gamemaker sits at a set of controls, fingers on the triggers that could end my life in a second.” (175) “ Not only will I face death, it’s sure to be a long and painful one at Cato’s hand. The thought of Prim having to watch that keeps me doggedly inching my way toward the hideout.” (223) “ Unexpectedly, Rue throws her arms around me. I only hesitate a moment before I hug her back…I turn and head back to the stream, feeling somehow worried. About Rue being killed, about Rue not being killed and the two of us being left for last, about leaving Rue alone, about leaving Prim alone back home.” (213)
  9. 9. I'm on the corner waiting for a light to come on That's when I know that you're alone It's cold in the desert, water never sees the ground Special unspoken without sound Told me you love me, that I'd never die alone Hand over your heart, let's go home Everyone noticed, everyone has seen the signs I've always been known to cross lines I never ever cried when I was feeling down I've always been scared of the sound Jesus don't love me, no one ever carried my load I'm too young to feel this old Here's to you, here's to me On to us, nobody knows Nobody sees, nobody but me
  10. 10. “ This is the first kiss that we’re both fully aware of. Neither of us hobbled by sickness or pain or simply unconscious. Our lips neither burning with fever or icy cold. This is the first kiss where I actually feel stirring inside my chest. Warm and curious. This is the first kiss that makes me want another.” (298) “ I haven’t even begun to separate out my feelings about Peeta. It’s too complicated. What I did as part of the Games. As opposed to what I did out of anger at the Capitol. Or because of how it would be viewed back in District 12. Or simply because it was the only decent thing to do. Or what I did because I cared about him.” (358-359) “ And while I was talking, the idea of actually losing Peeta hit me again and I realized how much I don’t want him to die. And it’s not abou the sponsors. And it’s not about what will happen back home. And it’s not just that I don’t want to be alone. It’s him. I do not want to lose the boy with the bread.” (297) “ His voice isn’t angry. It’s hollow, which is worse. Already the boy with the bread is slipping away from me. I take his hand, holding on tightly, preparing for the cameras, and dreading the moment when I will finally have to let go.” (374)
  11. 11. Fumbling his confidence And wond’ring why the world has passed him by Hoping that he’s meant for more than arguments And failed attempts to fly, fly We were meant to live for so much more Have we lost ourselves? Somewhere we live inside Somewhere we live inside We were meant to live for so much more Have we lost ourselves? Somewhere we live inside Dreaming about providence And whether mice or men have second tries Maybe we’ve been livin with our eyes half open Maybe we’re bent and broken, broken We were meant to live for so much more Have we lost ourselves? Somewhere we live inside Somewhere we live inside We were meant to live for so m uch more Have we lost ourselves? Somewhere we live inside We want more than this world’ s got to offer We want more than this world’ s got to offer We want more than the wars o f our fathers And everything inside screams for second life We were meant to live for so m uch more Have we lost ourselves? We were meant to live for so m uch more Have we lost ourselves? We were meant to live for so m uch more Have we lost ourselves? We were meant to live We were meant to live
  12. 12. “ For the first time, I allow myself to truly think about the possibility that I might make it home. To fame…No more fear of hunger. A new kind of freedom. But then…what? What would my life be like on a daily basis? Most of it has been consumed with the acquisition of food. Take that away and I’m not really sure who I am, what my identity is…I know I will never marry, never risk bringing a child into the world. Because if there’s one thing being a victor doesn’t guarantee, it’s your children’s safety. My kids’ names would go right into the reaping balls with everyone else’s. And I sear I’ll never let that happen.” (310-311)
  13. 13. Destiny Is hard to meet It'll hunt you down somewhere along the way Don't you see? We're meant to be The prodigies that came to show the way But I don't wanna rule the world alone None of us can make it on our own I'm screaming but I cannot hear a sound The suffocation slowly comes around Loneliness Eating me inside It's burning me alive I'm traveling in my mind And flying through a thousand lonely souls that cry in swamps of evil lies We're closer to the truth now Take me home Don't believe It's dark to see When the sun has left you at the end of day Suddenly It's hard to breathe Resting in the trenches won't yo u say? Loneliness Eating me inside It's burning me alive I'm traveling in my mind And flying through a thousand lo nely souls that cry in swamps of evil lies We're closer to the truth now Take me home
  14. 14. “ My fingers fumble with the pouch on my belt, freeing it. Peeta sees it and his hand clamps on my wrist. ‘No, I won’t let you.’ ‘ Trust me,’ I whisper. He holds my gaze for a long moment then lets me go. I loosen the top of the pouch and pour a few spoonfuls of berries into his palm. Then I fill my own. ‘On the count of three?’ Peeta leans down and kisses me once, very gently. ‘The count of three,’ he says. We stand, our backs pressed together, our empty hands locked tight…I lift my hand to my mouth, taking one last look at the world. The berries have just passed my lips when the trumpets begin to blare.” (344-345)
