Song help

I need some more music for inspiration, so I thought I'd ask for some song recomendations to expand my "resources". :)

Looking for songs with a "I love you/look out for you even though you're not good for me/maybe I shouldn't trust you" kind of theme (can be romantic/friendship/parental), and songs with a "standing up for myself/getting out on my own" kind of theme. Any thoughts?

Also, if you know any songs that seem particularly noir/hardboiled detective-ish, I'm up for those, too.

Thanks!

Tori Amos "Purple People" always sounds noir to me.

Bjork "Where is the Line" for looking out despite the person's untrustworthiness

Thanks! I hadn't heard "Purple People" before--definitely noir-ish. :D

I love this stuff. (See icon.)

The first one that comes to mind is "Going Under" by Evanescence. It's kind of hard-hitting with a theme of "I love you but I'm going under."

"Move On" by Jet is a good "getting out on my own" song.

Your third request seems very difficult to translate to music, but I'll try. How about "Time Is Running Out," by Muse, and "Hey Pretty," by Poe? Oh! And another really pretty/scary song (to me, anyway) is "Not An Addict," by K's Choice.

I'll add more songs if I think of some.

"I love you/look out for you even though you're not good for me/maybe I shouldn't trust you"

Eisley - Telescope Eyes. Great sweet melody and the lyrics seem to fit with the theme (Google them; if I post them all I'll look weird but I can't pick a snippet to post.)
