The Doctor from Doctor Who (especially Ten)
"Desperado" by The Eagles
Ohhhh you aint getting no younger.
Your pain and your hunger,
They're driving you home.
And freedom, ohh freedom.
Well that's just some people talking.
Your prison is walking through this world all alone.
Don't your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine.
It's hard to tell the night time from the day.
And you're losing all your highs and lows
aint it funny how the feeling goes

Mickey Smith from Doctor Who (more Season One Mickey)
"Drops of Jupiter" by Train
Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were looking at yourself out there?
Now that shes back from that soul vacation
Tracing her way through the constellation, hey, hey
She checks out mozart while she does tae-bo
Reminds me that theres time to grow, hey, hey
Now that shes back in the atmosphere
Im afraid that she might think of me as plain ol jane
Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land

Tony Stark from Iron Man
"All About Me" by Matt Dusk
What a fine mess I got myself into this time
Who'd of thought a guy like me could crumble
I'm sure that not a soul would ever guess that I'm
Finding it hard to even stumble
I used to think that I was strong
I used to think the world revolved around me
Never thought that I was wrong
And this big world almost drowned me
But I'm breaking out of my routine
And about time that I come clean
And it's all good and it's all new
Let's reintroduce myself to you
No trouble that I'm in
No way that I can't win
And a good man I will be
Once I learn it's not all about me

Connie Murphy from The Dresden Files
"Je Crois (I Believe)" by Nathalie Fauran (Return to Neverland French ST)
But I'm tired
And too old too believe
These naive stories
Of trust and loyalty
And fairy dust
I would like to see what he sees
I would like to believe what he believes
To have faith, faith to believe and finally see
The universe that separates
This world in tears that trembles in fear and the dream echanter
[Full lyrics with my translation here]

Simon Tam from Firefly
"Your Safe Place to Hide" by Melissa O'Neil
And when you've got no where to turn
And you're all alone
When your walls a breaking yet there's no escaping
And I, I'd fly through the night
To get back to your side
I will be your safe place to hide
I was, always there for you
Always cared for you
And I'm still
Right here guarding you
Watching over you
Though I'm miles away
From the world I left behind
I will find a way back to you
