{1} Cleaning Out My Closet - Angel Haze {For those whose stories aren't fictional}
Please note this song is very graphic, and can most certainly be triggering.
When I was seven envision me at the bottom of stairs
And I solemnly swear that this is the truth, no fallacy here
See I was young, man, I was just a toddler, a kid
And he wasn't the first to successfully try but he did

Now I'm just saying this to tell you there's a way from the ground
The makings of a legend are often hidden in trials
So just be strong and just move on and just accept what you can
Because it makes your story better when you read at the end

{2} Conversations With My 13 Year Old Self - P!nk {Top of the Lake - Robin & Tui}
The pain you feel is real you're not asleep but it's a nightmare
But you can wake up anytime
Oh don't lose your passion or the fighter that's inside of you
You're the girl I used to be
The pissed off complicated thirteen year old me

{3} Beautiful Pain - Eminem Ft. Sia {Law & Order: SVU - Amanda}
It happens all the time, they take your heart and steal your life
And it's as though you feel you've died
Cause you've been killed inside
But yet you're still alive
Which means you will survive

{4} Burn It Down - Awolnation {Closure/Straightheads - Alice}
If you're feeling like I feel, throw your fist through the ceiling
Some people call it crazy, well I call it healing

So burn it down, burn it down
So burn it down, burn it down, yeah

{5} Fight Like A Girl - Emilie Autumn {Jessica Jones - Jessica}
There is no such thing as justice,
All the best that we can hope for is revenge
A hostile takeover,
An absolute rebellion to the end.
This is our battle cry
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
I’m giving you a head start,
You’re going to need it,
’Cause I fight like a girl

{6} Bird Set Free - Sia {Jessica Jones - Jessica}
Clipped wings, I was a broken thing
Had a voice, had a voice but I could not sing
You would wind me down
I struggled on the ground
So lost, the line had been crossed
Had a voice, had a voice but I could not talk
You held me down
I struggle to fly now

{7} Angels & Airwaves - Angel Haze {How to Get Away with Murder - Annalise}
So this is for you
If you're thinking it now
If you're wanting to die
If you're thinking it out
You are so much more than you are in this moment
You never know how great you can be
Don't give up on you
I didn't give up on me

{8} Alive - Sia {How to Get Away with Murder - Annalise}
I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don't change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you're taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived

I'm still breathing
I'm alive

{9} Perfect - P!nk {The Fosters - Callie}
So complicated, look happy, you'll make it
Filled with so much hatred... such a tired game
It's enough, I've done all I can think of
Chased down all my demons, I've seen you do the same

Oh, pretty pretty please, don't you ever ever feel
Like you're less than, less than perfect
Pretty pretty please, if you ever ever feel like you're nothing
You are perfect to me

{10} Unstoppable - Sia {The Fall - Stella}
I'll put my armor on, Show you how strong I am
I'll put my armor on, I'll show you that I am

I'm unstoppable
I'm a Porsche with no brakes
I'm invincible
Yes I'll win every single game
I'm so powerful
I don't need batteries to play
I'm so confident
I'm unstoppable today
