It was a night of long-awaited kisses on The Vampire Diaries. Fittingly, Season 3, Episode 19, “Heart of Darkness,” was full of emotional, passionate songs that we wish were on the soundtrack to our love lives. If you’re dying to use them on your own mix, check out the songs below.

Artist: The Strange Familiar

Song: “Redemption”

Music moment: Tyler (Michael Trevino) and Caroline (Candice Accola) reunite

Lyrics: The night is slowly closing, But my eyes are slowly opened, And I see that somewhere in you, There is a good heart, There is a good soul, For everyone lost in the silence, For every one missing piece, For every will that is broken, No matter how dark it may be, There is redemption, I feel the threat of thunder, But this rain can't last forever, The light chases the dark, Where there's a good heart, There is a good soul, For everyone lost in the silence, For every one missing piece, For every will that is broken, No matter how dark it may be, There is redemption, There is redemption, For everyone lost in the silence, There is redemption

Song: “Never Let Me Go”

Music moment: Damon (Ian Somerhalder) takes Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) hand

Lyrics: Looking out from underneath, Fractured moonlight on the sea, Reflections still look the same to me, As before I went under. And it's peaceful in the deep, Cathedral where you cannot breathe, No need to pray, no need to speak, Now I am under. And it's breaking over me, A thousand miles onto the sea bed, Found the place to rest my head. Never let me go, never let me go. Never let me go, never let me go. And the arms of the ocean are carrying me, And all this devotion was rushing out of me, And the crashes are heaven, for a sinner like me, The arms of the ocean deliver me. Though the pressure's hard to take, It's the only way I can escape, It seems a heavy choice to make, Now I am under. And it's breaking over me, A thousand miles down to the sea bed, Found the place to rest my head. Never let me go, never let me go. Never let me go, never let me go. And the arms of the ocean are carrying me, And all this devotion was rushing out of me, And the crashes are heaven, for a sinner like me, The arms of the ocean deliver me. And it's over, And I'm going under, But I'm not giving up! I'm just giving in. Oh, slipping underneath. Oh, so cold, but so sweet. In the arms of the ocean, so sweet and so cold, And all this devotion I never knew at all, And the crashes are Heaven, for a sinner released, And the arms of the ocean, Deliver me. Never let me go, never let me go. Never let me go, never let me go. Deliver me. Never let me go, never let me go. Never let me go, never let me go. Deliver me. Never let me go, never let me go. Never let me go, never let me go. Never let me go, never let me go. Never let me go, never let me go. And it's over, And I'm goin' under, But I'm not givin' up! I'm just givin' in. Oh, slipping underneath. Oh, so cold, but so sweet

Song: “When the Light Dies Out”

Music moment: Rose (Lauren Cohan) explains to Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) why Damon and Elena work

Lyrics: It felt so wrong, Dying in your arms, Just to keep you, Could we belong, In one another’s arms, And see this through, Is this not worth, This heart that bleeds on my sleeve, Oh how I miss you, When the light dies out, Will we see nothing, As we slip away from each other, Is it just for now, This sinking feeling of, Losing what we have, Is this not worth, This heart that bleeds on my sleeve, Oh how I miss you
