Tunes & Tales: Science & Faith

I am an extremely loyal fan of The Script. I've bought and loved every single one of their albums, which I listen to obsessively on repeat because their melodies are beautiful and their lyrics are challenging and inspiring and clever. I've seen them live a total of four times now: first at Rumsey Playfield for the Science & Faith tour, then at Radio City Music Hall for the 3 tour, then at Nikon @ Jones Beach Theater for the One Republic Native Tour and most recently, at Hammerstein Ballroom for the No Sound Without Silence tour. I seriously admire these lads and their music, and I wanted to share a Tunes & Tales featuring their sophomore album Science & Faith.

VIBE: pop rock with a mix of ballads and beats
WHY: Read my fangirl paragraph above and that's enough explanation, I think.
TRY: Science and Faith is one of my all-time favorite songs.
You Won't Feel a Thing // Heart of Betrayal
I've been lied to, shamed
I have been disgraced
Been ex-communicated from every holy place [...]
When trouble thinks it's found us
The world falls down around us 
I promise baby you won't ever
You won't ever feel a thing

For the First Time // The Bourbon Kings
Sit talking up all night
Saying things we haven't for a while, a while yeah
We're smiling but we're close to tears
Even after all these years
We just now got the feeling that we're meeting
For the first time

Nothing // Lover Mine
And I know that I'm drunk but I’ll say the words
And she'll listen this time even though they’re slurred
So I, dialed her number and confessed to her
I'm still in love but all I heard
Was nothing

Science & Faith // Asunder
You won't find faith or hope down a telescope
You won't find heart and soul in the stars
You can break everything down to chemicals
But you can't explain a love like ours.

If You Ever Come Back // The Geography of You and Me
If it's the fighting you remember or the little things you miss
I know you're out there somewhere so just remember this
If it's the fighting you remember or the little things you miss
Oh just remember this, oh just remember this [...]
If you ever come back
There'll be a smile on my face and the kettle on
And it will be just like you were never gone

Long Gone and Moved On // Forever, Interrupted
Cause I still don't know how to act
Don't know what to say
Still wear the scars like it was yesterday
But you're long gone and moved on
Cause you're long gone 
But I still don't know where to start, still finding my way
Still talk about you like it was yesterday
But you're long gone and moved on

Dead Man Walking // P.S. I Still Love You 
I see you standing there but you're already gone
I'm holding your hand but you're barely holding on
I'm kissing your lips but it just don't feel the same
Am I dead there now, left living with the blame

Love is why we do it
Love is worth the pain
Love is why we fall down
And get back up again
Love is where the heart lies
Love is from above
Love is this, this is love

And I hurt so bad, that I search my skin
For the entry point, where love went in
And ricocheted and bounced around
And left a hole when you walked out, yeah

Walk Away // Yours Until Dawn
Cause when you're in too deep you wake up when it's too late,
You've fallen in love in the worst way
And if you don't go now then you'll stay
Cause I'll never let you leave, never let you breathe
Cause if you're looking for heaven, baby it sure as hell ain't me

Bullet from a Gun // Ruin and Rising
Now she's showing me mercy as much as she can
She's letting me live with my demons
See her washing her hands as she's walking away
Oh but still she looks back, she looks back
But she's leaving, she's leaving
