The songs in Something Borrowed Played by the 90s cover band

Just saw the film Something Borrowed today, and...I really enjoyed it actually. I really liked the film even though it used the tried and tested plot line of having two characters so obviously and desperately in love, being the perfect fit for each other, yet somehow failing to realize their feelings for each other. The only thing that kind of really let the film down is the ending parts felt kind of rushed and after such a great build up all the way through the film it just left an unfulfilled feeling for me. It would have been much more acceptable if it was the beginning parts of the film that was not so great. Anyways I have been speaking off topic for way too long. One of the best part of the film was the great songs in it, and two of the best  was at a really great moment in the film, played when the two main characters (Rachel and Dex) went to see a 90s cover band for the wedding. The 90s cover band was playing two songs
The first was


How's It Going To Be

by 

Third Eye Blind







Lyrics

I'm only pretty sure that I can't take anymore
Before you take a swing
I wonder what are we fighting for
When I say out loud
I want to get out of this
I wonder is there anything
I'm going to miss
I wonder how it's going to be
When you don't know me
How's it going to be
When you're sure I'm not there
How's it going to be
When there's no one there to talk to
Between you and me
Cause I don't care
How's it going to be
How's it going to be
Where we used to laugh
There's a shouting match
Sharp as a thumbnail scratch
A silence I can't ignore
Like the hammock by the
Doorway we spent time in swings empty
Don't see lightning like last fall
When it was always about to hit me
I wonder how's it going to be
When it goes down
How's it going to be
When you're not around
How's it going to be
When you found out there was nothing
Between you and me
Cause I don't care
How's it going to be
And how's it going to be
When you don't know me anymore
And how's it going to be
Want to get myself back in again
The soft dive of oblivion
I want to taste the salt of your skin
The soft dive of oblivion oblivion
How's it going to be
When you don't know me anymore
How's it going to be
How's it going to be
How's it going to be 



The second song was
Round Here

by

PT Walkley (Original was by Counting Crows I think)





Lyrics

Step out the front door like a ghost
Into the fog where no one notices
The contrast of white on white.
And in between the moon and you
Angels get a better view
Of the crumbling difference between wrong and right.
And I walk in the air between the rain, through myself and back again
Where? I don't know
Well, Maria says she's dying
Through the door I hear her crying
Why? I don't know
Round here, we always stand up straight
Round here, something radiates
Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand
She said she'd like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis
And she walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land
Just like she's walking on a wire in the circus
She parks her car outside of my house and takes her clothes off.
She says she's close to understanding Jesus
And she knows she's more than just a little misunderstood
She has trouble acting normal when she's nervous
Round here we're carving out our names
Round here we all look the same
Round here we talk just like lions
But we sacrifice like lambs
Round here she's slipping through my hands
Run home, sleeping children better run like the wind
out of the lightning dream
Mama's little baby better get herself in
out of the lightning
She says "it's only in my head"
She says "Shhhhh I know it's only in my head"
But the girl in the car in the parking lot
Says "Man you should try to take a shot
Can't you see my walls are crumbling?"
Then she looks up at the building
Says she's thinking of jumping
She says she's tired of life
She must be tired of something
Round here she's always on my mind
Round here hey man got lots of time
Round here we're never sent to bed early
and nobody makes us wait
Round here we stay up very, very, very, very late oh
I can't see nothing... nothing round here
Will you catch me if I'm falling
Will you catch me if I'm falling
Will you catch me cause I'm falling down on you
I said I'm under the gun around here
Oh man I said I'm under the gun around here
And I can't see nothing
Nothing round here



I hope you enjoy the songs :)

  2. Glad to be able to help. I loved these two songs too, as soon as I heard them in the movie all I could think about was wanting to find out what they were.

  3. Around here was made famous by the Counting Crows (btw - it's featured on their first album, which I believe is the best one), but the original version 'Round here' was pre-Counting Crows - created by the Himalayans.
