[365 DAYS OF REHAB POP] is a series that makes music a recovery plan out of sadness. It highlights pop hits that heal. Every track featured has its own kind of hope, holds out a hand that knows heartache intimately like the back of, well, it. #Goal is that this series serves as a set of heart-to-hearts for the ghost-hearted. And that it gives you words to hurl at your own hurt.

THIS TIME: Paint your bruises neon. Let’s make vulnerability sexy again. FIND THE MIX AT YOUTUBE. OR HERE, ONE TRACK AT A TIME.

DAY 7 //
ISABELLA IS A LONELY GIRL
WHEN SHE’S TRIPPING, ALONE
IN THE BACKSEAT OF THE TAXI


DAY 8//
DID YOU THINK THAT
I’D LEAVE YOU ON YOUR OWN?
BOY, YOU MUST BE MAD
DID YOU THINK THAT
I’D FORGET TO SAY YOUR NAME?
BOY, THAT MAKES ME SAD


DAY 9//
I SHOULD STAY STRONG
BUT I’M WEAK
AND
WHAT’S WRONG WITH THAT?


DAY 10//
YOU RAISE YOUR GUARD
AS YOU REMEMBER THE SCARS
TRYNA LET GO, BUT IT’S HARD
KNOWING IT’S THE ONLY WAY
YOU CAN MOVE ON


DAY 11//
I’M MADE OF STEEL
SOMETHING SO REAL
SHOW ME HOW YOU FEEL


DAY 12//
THESE ARE THE LINES WE
REHEARSE IN OUR MIND
UNTIL WE’RE SPEAKING


DAY 13//
I’VE BEEN GOING TOO FAR
PRETENDING
AND ACCEPTING


DAY 14//
I GIVE YOU POWER, OVER ME
I GIVE YOU POWER,
BUT NOW I GOTTA BE FREE


DAY 15//
I WISH THAT
I WAS JUST A CLOUD
HIGH, DARK IN THE SKY


DAY 16//
I’VE NEVER BEEN TOO GREAT AT
BLOCKING OUT THE DARK
AND I’M LONGING FOR THE DAY
I LOSE MY DISTRUST IN US


DAY 17//
I’M NOT THE KING OF
THIS MESSED UP LAND
THEY WANT, A SIMPLE PLAN
BUT OUR WORLD IS A FREAKIN’ MESS


DAY 18//
THE TROUBLE WITH YOU
YOU DON’T DO WHAT
YOUR HEART WANTS TO
THAT’S THE TROUBLE WITH YOU

DAY 19//
I KEEP RUNNING AWAY FROM DISASTER
DON’T SAY IT’S OK WHEN IT’S NOT
I KEEP THINKING IT’S NORMAL
NOT TO STOP


DAY 20//
I WOKE UP, ALONE
NOBODY BUT ME
I GOT UP, WALKED DOWN
EMPTY STREETS, I’VE
BEEN LIVING IN MY HEADPHONES TOO LONG


DAY 21//
IM GONNA MAKE IT UP TO YOU
SOMEHOW


DAY 22//
EVERY NOW AND THEN I THINK
OF WHEN WE BROKE
I KNOW THAT THEY WILL SAY I’M CRAZY
BUT I DON’T CARE


DAY 23//
BEFORE IT SLIPS AWAY
SAY SOMETHING LOVING
I DON’T REMEMBER
THE THRILL OF AFFECTION


DAY 24//
I WAS GONNA DIE YOUNG
NOW I GOTTA WAIT FOR YOU


DAY 25//
I WON’T FAIL
LET ME GET YOUR BACK


DAY 26 //
ONE LOOK, ONE TOUCH OF THE HAND
CAN SET THIS SPIRAL IN MOTION
MOVE


DAY 27//
I DON’T NEED YOUR BIG HAND CATCHING ME
COS WE’VE BEEN FALLING DOWN FOR DAYS
AND WE DON’T SEE NO OTHER WAY
DON’T STOP ME NOW,
DON’T TELL ME WHAT TO DO
I LIKE TO BE FREE
