From a song and explain to us fellow TRF members why that lyric is important to you and what song it's from, it doesn't need to be important to you for a personal reason, but just say why you think it's powerful :D

Argh so many to choose from! This is making me realise how many depressing songs I listen to.

But I have one from an optimistic sort of song... its a bit happy/sad/reminiscent from James Morrison's album, Songs for You, Truths for Me which I can only thank Angelus for getting me into it.

Song: Once When I Was Little

Lyric/s:

So here comes the next one, next in line,
Stay as young as you can, for the longest time,
Cause the days flew by,
Just like a breeze passing through,
Once when I was little.

Its actually the ending of the song, but it means alot to me personally because it makes me realise how much my life has changed throughout the past year or so. Alot of people have moved on, and I am now experiencing the real world. :)

Btw, go and buy this album, you will be blown away! James doesn't get the credit that he deserves. He is an amazing songwriter.

Let the rain come down and wash away my tears,
Let it fill my soul and drown my tears,
Let it shatter the walls for a new sun,
A new day has come...

A New Day Has Come - Celine Dion

I suppose the lyrics are quite moving when you're finishing
one chapter of your life and ready to move on to your next. I feel
it's quite relevant atm as I'm leaving school and ready for a new beginning
at college now.

And not to pull your halo down
Around your neck and tug you to the ground
But I'm more than just a little curious
How you're planning to go about
Making your amends to the dead
To the dead

With your halo slipping down
Your halo slipping
Your halo slipping down
Your halo slipping down
Your halo slipping down [repeated]

Your halo slipping down to choke you now

This applies to all the screwed up people who dragged me down and used me during a dark point in my life. Its funny now how they act like they have always been so high and mighty when i know very well that that isn't the case and so do they.

These are people who have very deservedly put themselves on pedestals that they've far from earned.

Comparisons are easily done once you've had a taste of perfection.
Like an apple hanging from a tree,
I picked the ripest one, and I stiil got the seed.

You said move on where do I go?
I guess second best is all I will know.

Kinda sums up my life at minute....:p

"Never argue with these idiots, They drag you down to their level and beat you with ignorance."

White Suburb Impressionism - IAMX

My favourite part of one of my favourite songs. I just love the way it's sung and what it says. :)

And these parts of Desert Song by My Chemical Romance:

From the lights to the pavement
From the van to the floor
From backstage to the doctor
From the earth to the morgue
Morgue, morgue, morgue!

Well tonight, will it ever come?
Spend the rest of your days rockin' out just for the dead
Well tonight, will it ever come?
I can see you wake anytime in my head

All fall down, well after all...

And from Northern Downpour by Panic At The Disco:

"If all our life is but a dream
Fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me"

The Ballad Of Michael Valentine - The Killers

"With your new suit, and your black tie
Hold on, you're just a gambling man, all proper like
I broke to the right and I caught your eye
Shut your mouth and wave goodbye tonight

I ain't gonna let you rain on this parade "

I have so many more. :D

3 Doors Down-Let Me Be Myself
Please, would you one time,
Let Me Be Myslef,
So I can shine, with my own light,
Let Me Be Myself,
For a while, if you don't mind,
Let Me Be Myself,
So I can shine with my own light,
Let Me be Myself

Alot of people tried dragging my down to what they were, make me the same as them at school, make me look up to them, but even now I dont, cos I am myself, and people tired to change me...it didn't work, no one can change who I am


Sum 41-Pieces

I tired to be perfect,
But Nothing was worth it,
I Dont beleive it maks me real,
I thought'd be easy,
But No one believes me,
I meant all the things I said,
If you believe it's in my soul,
I'd say all the words that I know,
Just to see if it would show,
That I'm trying to let you know,
That I'm better off on my own

06-06-09, 21:47
Its a song from my favorite band,Hinder,called Better than me


i love it couse its beautiful:

I think you can do much better than me
After all the lies that I made you believe
Guilt kicks in and I start to see
The edge of the bed
Where your nightgown used to be
I told myself I won't miss you
But I remember
What it feels like beside you
I really miss your hair in my face
And the way your innocence tastes
And I think you should know this
You deserve much better than me

Soft heavenly eyes gazed into me
Transcending space and time
And I was rendered still
There were no words for me to find at all
As I stood there beside myself
I could see you and no-one else

When I saw you
When I saw you
I could not breathe
I fell so deep
When I saw you
When I saw you
I'd never be
I'd never be the same

Mariah Carey - When I Saw You

personally it's a song that describes my first love. Even though we are no more, i still have the feeling for her, when i looked into to her eyes and she looked into mine. ahhh i hate first relationships sometimes, they usually never work and sometimes the feelings for your first love never ends. I think this song is powerful enough to describe a person you are falling for whether it is your first love or not. however, i feel this song applies to your first love by the lyrics. Very emotion lyrics and an emotional song by Mariah with her voice, a must listen.

Because it describes my life ever since I was 3...

Nine Inch Nails - I do not want this.

I'm losing ground
you know how this world can beat you down
and I'm made of clay
I fear I'm the only one who thinks this way

I'm always falling down this same hill
bamboo puncturing this skin
and nothing comes bleeding out of me
just like a waterfall I'm drowning in
two feet below the surface
I can still make out your wavy face
and if I could just reach you
maybe I could leave this place

I do not want this
I do not want this
I do not want this
I do not want this

and don't you tell me how I feel
don't you tell me how I feel
don't you tell me how I feel
you don't know just how I feel

I stay inside my bed
I have lived so many lives all in my head
and don't tell me that you care
there really isn't anything now, is there?

you would know, wouldn't you?
you extend your hand to those who suffer
to those who know what it really feels like
to those who've had a taste
like that means something
and oh so sick I am
and maybe I don't have a choice
and maybe that is all I have
and maybe this is a cry for help

I do not want this
I do not want this
I do not want this
I do not want this

and don't you tell me how I feel
don't you tell me how I feel
don't you tell me how I feel
you don't know just how I feel

I want to know everything
I want to be everywhere
I want to **** everyone in the world
I want to do something that matters
I want to know everything
I want to be everywhere
I want to **** everyone in the world
I want to do something that matters
I want to know everything
I want to be everywhere
I want to **** everyone in the world
I want to do something that matters
I want to know everything
I want to be everywhere
I want to **** everyone in the world
I want to do something that matters
I want to know everything
I want to be everywhere
I want to **** everyone in the world
I want to do something that matters

Evanescence - Understanding.

You hold the answer deep within your own mind
Consciously you've forgotten it
That's the way the human mind works
Whenever something is too unpleasant
Too shameful for us to entertain we reject it [We wash it all away]
We erase it from our memory
But the imprint is always there [we wish it all away]
[We hope it all away]
[Can't cry it all away]

The pain that grips you
The fear that binds you
Releases life in me
In our mutual shame we hide our eyes
To blind them from the truth that finds a way for who we are

Please don't be afraid
When the darkness fades away
The dawn will break the silence
Screaming in our hearts

My love for you still grows
This I do for you
Before I try to fight the truth
My final time

We're supposed to try and be real
And when you feel alone, you are not together
And that is real

Can't wash it all away
Can't wish it all away
Can't cry it all away
Can't scratch it all away

Lying beside you
Listening to you breathe
The light that flows inside of you
Burns inside of me

Hold and speak to me
Of love without a sound
Tell me you will live through this
And I will die for you

Cast me not away
Say you'll be with me
For I know
I cannot bear it all alone

You're not alone, honey
Never, never

Can't fight it all away
Can't hope it all away
Can't scream it all away
It just won't fade away, no

Ooh, can't wash it all away
Can't wish it all away
Can't cry it all away
Can't scratch it all away

Can't fight it all away
Can't hope it all away
Can't scream it all away
Oh! It all away
Oh! It all away

But the imprint is always there
Nothing is ever really forgotten

God, just don't hate me
Because I'll die if you do
'Cause I'll die if you do
'Cause I'll die if you do
'Cause I'll die if you do
Because I'll die if you do

Because I have so many beautiful memories attatched to this song. :)

I know it's stupid, and we've all heard it, but
If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here...

or Suteki da ne, here's a translation.

The wind, like a heart that swam in the accumulated words
The clouds, a voice that was shot into the holding future
The moon, a shaking heart in an unsteady mirror
The stars, gentle tears in an overflowing stream


Isn't it beautiful,
To walk together in each others hands
I do so want to go,
To your city, your house, into your arms.

That heart,
held within your body
In those confusing nights
I dream


The wind, its halting words are a gentle illusion
The clouds, the broken future like a distant voice
The moon, a heart flowing in the clouded mirror
The stars, broken and swaying, like tears unable to be hidden.


Isn't it beautiful,
To walk together in each others hands
I do so want to go,
To your city, your house, into your arms.

That face,
A soft touch,
Dissolving into morning,
I dream.

3 Doors Down-The Champion In Me

You said that mountains too high,
You said that oceans too wide
I've heard all new beginings
started with an end
Watch this journey I take,
turn into something I make
Please watch closely,
you may not see this again

Cause I, know I,
I was born to be this way
Everyday I try and I'll do
everything that it takes
to become the one
what I've always wanted to be
Watch right now
and you will see the champion in me
The champion in me

Sports day, everyone was shocked to see I was so fast:p...Won alot of games and Runnings sprints that day:)

Staind - Schizophrenic Conversations

Are you afraid
Afraid of the truth
In the mirror staring back at you
The image is cracked
But so is the view here
And the strength of a tree
Begins in the roots
That I tend to bury into you
At least now the storm
Can't blow me away

Should I be afraid
Of this face that I see
In the mirror staring back at me
So cold were the days
When I listened to you
And you say that I'm weak
So show me the proof
Because I still exist in spite of you
But I won't compete
With you every day

So crawl inside
My head with me
And I'll show you how it feels to be
f****d up like me
I'll show you how it feels to be
To blame like me
Ashamed like me

Basically it's about a person in my life who I thought I couldn't live without at the time but now that they're gone I'm actually better off :)



Shinedown - The Crow And The Butterfly

I painted your room at midnight
So I'd know yesterday was over
I put all your books on the top shelf
Even the one with the four leaf clover

Man, I'm getting older
I took all your pictures off the wall
And wrapped them in a newspaper blanket
I haven't slept in what seems like a century
And now I can barely breathe

Your words still serenade me
Your lullabies won't let me sleep
I've never heard such a haunting melody
Oh, it's killing me
You know I can barely breathe

Just like a crow chasing a butterfly
Dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting high as outer space
I never thought you'd slip away
I guess I was just a little too late

Well, this one is just beautiful...

There more I know, the less I understand and all the things I thought I figured out I have to learn again. I've been trying to get down to the heart of the matter but my will gets weak and my thoughts seem to scatter but I know its about forgiveness, forgiveness, even if, even if, you don't love me anymore

Heart of the Matter- India Arie or Hentley from the Eagles


Come mothers and fathers through out the land and don't criticize what you can't understand. Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command. Your old road is rapidly aging, please get out of the new one if you can't lend your hand for the times, they are a-changing

Gotye - Heart's A Mess

Pick apart
The pieces of your heart
And let me peer inside
Let me in
Where only your thoughts have been
Let me occupy your mind
As you do mine

You have lost
(Too much love)
To fear, doubt and distrust
(Itís not enough)
You just threw away the key
(To your heart)

You donít get burned
(íCause nothing gets through)
It makes it easier
(Easier on you)
But that much more difficult for me
To make you seeÖ

Love ainít fair
So there you are
My love

Your heartís a mess
You wonít admit to it
It makes no sense
But Iím desperate to connect
And you, you canít live like this

Your heartís a mess
You wonít admit to it
It makes no sense
But Iím desperate to connect
And you, you canít live like this

Your heartís a mess
You wonít admit to it
It makes no sense
But Iím desperate to connect
And you, you canít live like this

Love ainít safe
You wonít get hurt if you stay chaste
So you can wait
But I donít wanna waste my love


I just think this is a very powerful song, the lyrics as well as the music are amazing.

'Cause I was hiding from the reality in my own imaginary world.. I know how to control this now, but this song will always be my favorite. :)

Evanescence - Imaginary

(Paper flowers, paper flowers)
I linger in the doorway
Of alarm clock screaming monsters calling my name
Let me stay
Where the wind will whisper to me
Where the raindrops as they're falling tell a story

In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me

Don't say I'm out of touch
With this rampant chaos your reality
I know well what lies beyond my sleeping refuge
The nightmare I built my own world to escape

In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me

Swallowed up in the sound of my screaming
Cannot cease for the fear of silent nights
Oh how I long for the deep sleep dreaming
The goddess of imaginary light

In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me
(Paper flowers, paper flowers)

My Chemical Romance - Helena
"Came a time when every star falls brought you to tears again."
For some reason, this is my favourite part of the song. The whole song is so beautiful to me and I can truly say, that it changed my life. Without this, I would be completely different.

Evanescence - Everybody's Fool
"Look here she comes now
Bow down and stare in wonder
Oh how we love you
No flaws when you're pretending
But now i know she

Never was and never will be
You don't know how you've betrayed me
And somehow you've got everybody fooled

Without the mask where will you hide
Can't find yourself lost in your lie

I know the truth now
I know who you are
And i don't love you anymore..."
What a powerful song, what more can I say.


And a few songs from Eminem, but I'll rather won't post those lyrics here.

Celine Dion: The Power of Love

The whispers in the morning
Of lovers sleeping tight
Are rolling like thunder now
As I look in your eyes

I hold on to your body
And feel each move you make
Your voice is warm and tender
A love that I could not forsake

(first chorus)
cause I am your lady
And you are my man
Whenever you reach for me
Ill do all that I can

Lost is how Im feeling lying in your arms
When the world outsides too
Much to take
That all ends when Im with you

Even though there may be times
It seems Im far away
Never wonder where I am
cause I am always by your side

(repeat first chorus)

(second chorus)
Were heading for something
Somewhere Ive never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But Im ready to learn
Of the power of love

The sound of your heart beating
Made it clear
Suddenly the feeling that I cant go on
Is light years away

(repeat first chorus)

(repeat second chorus)

I am really in love with that song!

Pussycat Dolls -- Halo

I can make love feel just like heaven
I can be a little devil in bed and
Even clean and cook your breakfast
But I'm not perfect
I can take off when you need your time
I can cheerlead for you from the sideline
Whisper in your ear so divine
But I'm not perfect

I know how to put your mind at ease (ay)
I can dress you for all four seasons
Surprise you for no reason
But I'm not perfectÖ..no
Fall on my knees and pray for our love
Promise not to let anything come between us
How could you let us fall apart all becauseÖ.I'm not perfect


These are the first two verses.
I like how it starts off sounding as though this woman is telling this man why she thinks they should be together; by saying that she can do good things for him, but she's not perfect. And then it sounds as though he was actually breaking up with her because she's not perfect, and she's is angry at him because she tried to make it work.

I think it's a really powerful song.

Cyndi Lauper - True Colors

You with the sad eyes
Don't be discouraged
Oh I realize
It's hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you fell so small

These lyrics means the world to me. They describe exactly how I felt when I "came out" as gay.

In fact, the whole song describes it. :)

The song that means the most to me it's possibly Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb.

Hello.
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone home?

Come on, now.
I hear youre feeling down.
Well I can ease your pain,
Get you on your feet again.

Relax.
I need some information first.
Just the basic facts:
Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ships smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I cant hear what youre sayin.
When I was a child I had a fever.
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I got that feeling once again.
I cant explain, you would not understand.
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb.

Ok.
Just a little pin*****. [ping]
Therell be no more --aaaaaahhhhh!
But you may feel a little sick.

Can you stand up?
I do believe its working. good.
Thatll keep you going for the show.
Come on its time to go.

There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ships smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I cant hear what youre sayin.
When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone.
I cannot put my finger on it now.
The child is grown, the dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb.

Third Eye Blind - Jumper

I wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend
You could cut ties with all the lies, that you've been living in
And if you do not want to see me again
I would understand, I would understand

The angry boy, a bit too insane
Icing over a secret pain
You know you don't belong

You're the first to fight
You're way too loud
You're the flash of light on a burial shroud
I know something's wrong

Well, everyone I know has got a reason
To say put the past away

Wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend
You could cut ties with all the lies that you've been living in
And if you do not want to see me again
I would understand, I would understand

And well, he's on the table
And he's gone to code
And I do not think anyone knows
What they are doing here

And your friends have left you
You've been dismissed
I never thought it would come to this
And I, I want you to know

Everyone's got to face down the demons
Maybe today we can put the past away

I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend
You could cut ties with all the lies
That you've been living in and if you do not want to see me again
I would understand, I would understand, I would understand

I would understand
I would understand
Understand

Can you put the past away?
I wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend
I would understand

I wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend
I would understand
I wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend
And I would understand

Lost at Night

In search for the moonlight
Somewhere in the darkness of the night
I look for the Sheppard to guide me to the light
As I take the wings of a bird.
I know it is a crime,
But I am running out of time,
Running from danger,
Running from a stranger
Caged in mayhem,
Surrounded by fear,
Shouting as I cry a tear.
Stabbed in the back by gauntlets
The painÖ, it hurts
Itís burning my soul
As a razorblade cuts the spirit of a tree,
As a storm running free.
I wow at the sight
Of the dark that undresses
The fading extinction of the light.
Death drifting away
The night turning into day.
I continue my voyage,
Having more knowledge,
But the storm is far from over,
For that was only the lid of Pandoraís Box
Which has begun to break away the golden locks.

I love this song because it's self-explanatory in a way, simply about a breakup of a relationship, but it has certain vulnerability and naivety to the lyrics which help make it seem more true-to-life for me

On Letting Go by Circa Survive

For your future sake
I've got advice I'd advise you to take
Don't keep betting 'Well
It's gotta light me up sometime'
Cause you've lost your turn

All I wanted to be was one of your children
All I wanted to be was one of yours...

See how clean the water is where you are,
Wash off your handcuffs
And all the hidden messages you hear,
They aren't real
You tricked your mind to feel

All I wanted to be was one of your children
All I wanted to be was one of yours...

Are we even now?
Are we even now we are unrelated?
We are unrelated

If blood is thicker than water then,
You'll drown quicker than we intended
If blood is thicker than water then
You'll know where you can find us, in the end

So we can begin again...
So we can begin

All I wanted to be was one of your children
All I wanted to be was one of yours

Madina Lake-Never Take Us Alive

For the last time I'll give myself to the enemy,
By letting their words just walk all over me.
Cause people they'll tear you apart,
If you are not like them.
And we are different.
Let the war begin.

So we say...

You can't break, can't change, can't take us down.
(We run this town)
We'll stand, we'll fight, set fires all night.
(You'll never take us alive...)
Wa oh oh oh oh oh...
Wa oh oh oh oh oh...
(You'll never take us alive...)
Wa oh oh oh oh oh...
Wa oh oh ohhhhh...
(You'll never take us alive...)

There's no fear inside.
This is our time, no giving up.
When we connect our hearts, to our minds,
There's no stopping us.

So we say

My stupid mouth-John Mayer

My stupid mouth
Has got me in trouble
I said too much again
To a date over dinner yesterday
And I could see
She was offended
She said "well anyway..."
Just dying for a subject change


Oh, another social casualty
Score one more for me
How could I forget?
Mama said "think before speaking"
No filter in my head
Oh, what's a boy to do
I guess he better find what soon


We bit our lips
She looked out the window
Rolling tiny balls of napkin paper
I played a quick game of chess with the salt and pepper shaker
And I could see clearly, An indelible line was drawn
Between what was good, what JUST slipped out and what went wrong


Oh, the way she feels about me has changed
Thanks for playing, try again.
How could I forget?
Mama said "think before speaking"
No filter in my head
Oh, what's a boy to do
I guess he better find one


I'm never speaking up again
It only hurts me
I'd rather be a mystery
Than she desert me


Oh I'm never speaking up again
Starting now... Starting now


One more thing
Why is it my fault?
So maybe I try too hard
But it's all because of this desire
I just wanna be liked
I just wanna be funny
Looks like the jokes on me
So call me captain backfire


I'm never speaking up again
it only hurts me
I'd rather be a mystery
than she desert me


oh i'm never speaking up again
i'm never speaking up again
i'm never speaking up again
Starting now, starting now...


I really think that this is a powerful song because it says that one tiny moment can devastate something beautiful

I love this song at the moment. :)


Ellie Lawson - Hour of Need

Time was running out for me, I could see my destiny
Running, fading, to the distance I was jaded
You're running out on me, in my hour of need
My hour of need, splits the dead wood from the tree
I'm creating the ground is waiting…
Will you grow with me, will you grow with me
Will you grow with me, will you grow with me
Will you grow with me, will you grow
Or will you quote self-fulfilling prophecies

And it's slipping through my fingers like a desert in the rain
In my hour of need
I'm gonna mix up my emotions, dry my soul again
In my hour of need
It's slipping through my hands, dripping right through my nails,
Mmm, bleeding on the sand, succeeding where I failed
Succeeding where I failed…

But where is all my money, where is all my energy
Spending, saving all the time I could be making
Where is my energy, in my hour of need
My hour of need, is the river to the sea
Now I'm craving the water's waiting…
Will you bathe with me, will you bathe with me
Will you bathe with will you bathe with me
Will you bathe with me, will you bathe with me
Will you bathe or will you save yourself from coming clean

And it's slipping through my fingers like a desert in the rain
In my hour of need
I'm gonna mix up my emotions, dry my soul again
In my hour of need
Slipping through my hands, dripping right through my nails,
Mmm, bleeeding on the sand
Succeeding where I failed...

So don't become some backround noise
A backdrop for the girls and boys
Who just don't know, and just don't care
And just complain when you're not there

You had the time, you had the power,
You're yet to have, your finest hour...

Queen - Radio Gaga

The lyrical context to me personally, speaks out about my self-worth, independence and pride, to never shun it, to move on from folk that carry negativity and doubt about me, and take great strides to reach for my goals. :)

This song is so beautiful! It's by Eva Cassidy, remember?

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Among the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

So she took her love for to gaze awhile
Among the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
And you can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We will walk in fields of gold
We'll walk in fields of gold

I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We will walk in fields of gold
We'll walk in fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
As you lie in fields of gold

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Among the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold

The songs name is Fields of gold. God, she sounds like an angel singing!
This song means everything to me!

Stained Glass Masquerade - Casting Crowns

Lyrics:

Is there anyone that fails
Is there anyone that falls
Am I the only one in church today feelin' so small

Cause when I take a look around
Everybody seems so strong
I know they'll soon discover
That I don't belong

So I tuck it all away, like everything's okay
If I make them all believe it, maybe I'll believe it too
So with a painted grin, I play the part again
So everyone will see me the way that I see them

Are we happy plastic people
Under shiny plastic steeples
With walls around our weakness
And smiles to hide our pain
But if the invitation's open
To every heart that has been broken
Maybe then we close the curtain
On our stained glass masquerade

Is there anyone who's been there
Are there any hands to raise
Am I the only one who's traded
In the altar for a stage

The performance is convincing
And we know every line by heart
Only when no one is watching
Can we really fall apart

But would it set me free
If I dared to let you see
The truth behind the person
That you imagine me to be

Would your arms be open
Or would you walk away
Would the love of Jesus
Be enough to make you stay?

This song seems to fit my mood right now, almost perfectly... Just kinda hanging on to it this evening....

You may be suprised to learn that it was originally Sting who wrote/performed it :p Still a good version though :)

I guess there are a lot of songs with lyrics that mean something to me, but right now Ive been listening to 'Now we are free' by Hanz Zimmer (With Lisa Gerrard Singing).

The lyrics itself dont actually mean anything, and the 'language' she's singing in doesnt exist (she apparently calls it the sound of her heart) but it sounds inspiring all the same and it send shivers down my spine every time I hear it :)

City Love-John Mayer

I never liked this apple much
It always seemed too big to touch
I can't remember how I found
My way before she came around

I tell everyone
I smile just because
I've got a city love
I found it in Lydia
And I can't remember life before her name

She keeps a toothbrush at my place
As if I had the extra space
She steals my clothes to wear to work
I know - her hairs are on my shirts

I tell everyone
I smile just because
I've got a city love
I found it in Lydia
And I can't remember life before
The day
She called up and came to me
Covered in rain
And dinnertime shadowing
And as her clothes spun, we spooned
And I knew I was through
When I said "I love you"

Friday evening, we've been drinking
2 AM, I swear that I might propose
but we close the tab
split a cab
and call each other up when we get home
falling asleep to the sound
of sirens

I got a city love
I found it in Lydia

From the battery
To the gallery
It's the kind of thing you only see
In scented, glossy magazines

And I can't remember life before her name

I like it because it's awesome

This lyric isn't important to ME exactly but it was written when one of the band members wives died of cancer..I think it's an extremely fitting tribute;

Caught lust tie a noose around my neck
It's the unexplained that gets you when you obsess
I believed saying the truth would change the way that I felt
Lying to God ain't easy, when you're already in debt

So long my friend
We'll never meet again
I tried so hard to stay
It's too late for me

If all the love in this world isn't enough
Where do you go? Who do you trust?
I find myself wrapped in the arms of emptiness
I can't stop running away, can't find a place to exist

So long my friend
We'll never meet again
I tried so hard to stay
It's too late for me

and the song itself is here;

"The Nobodies" by Marilyn Manson

Today I am dirty
I want to be pretty
Tomorrow, I know I'm just dirt

Today I am dirty
I want to be pretty
Tomorrow, I know I'm just dirt

Fear the nobodies
Wanna be Somebodies
We're dead,
We know just who we are

We are the nobodies
Wanna be Somebodies
We're dead,
We know just who we are

Yesterday I was dirty
Wanted to be pretty
I know now that I'm forever dirt

Yesterday I was dirty
Wanted to be pretty
I know now that I'm forever dirt

We are the nobodies
Wanna be Somebodies
We're dead,
We know just who we are

We are the nobodies
Wanna be Somebodies
We're dead,
We know just who we are

Some children died the other day
We fed machines and then we prayed
Puked up and down in morbid faith
You should have seen the ratings that day

can someone please help me figure out what these lyrics actually mean?

A simple fear to wash you away
An open mind canceled it today
A silent song that's in your words
A different taste that's in your mind

This is the life on mars

Mary was a different girl
Had a thing for astronauts
Mary was the type of girl
She always liked to play a lot
Mary was a holy girl
Father whet her appetite
Mary was the type of girl
She always liked to fall apart

Tell me did you see her face
Tell me did you smell her taste
Tell me whatís the difference
Donít they all just look the same inside?
Buddha for Mary, Here it comes

Mary was an acrobat
But still she couldnít seem to breathe
Mary was becoming everything she didnít want to be
Mary would hallucinate
And see the sky upon the wall
Mary was the type of girl
She always liked to fly


He said, "Can you hear me, are you sleeping?"
She said, "Will you rape me now?"
He said, "Leave the politics to mad men"
She said, "I believe your lies"
He said, "Thereís a paradise beneath me"
She said, "Am I supposed to bleed?"
He said, "You better pray to Jesus"
She said, "I donít believe in god"

hope somebody can help me...thx...

Theres more then one so i just selected the main parts.

This song makes me think of a relationship i was in around october time which didnt last long at all but left me hurt pretty bad.
It wasnt just someone i fell for insantly but over time i grew to like them and we had been friends for a long time before going out and i havent spoke to the person since.

BRITNEY SPEARS

"Everytime"

Everytime I try to fly
I fall without my wings
I feel so small
I guess I need you baby
And everytime I see you in my dreams
I see your face, it's haunting me
I guess I need you baby

This song make's me think of how lucky i am to have things that people in poorer countrys dont have and how i take that stuff for granted and how the luxtrys (mobile phone , i-pod ..etc) never really make me happy because there is still some thing missing in my life and all these things could be taken away and i still wouldnt feel any different

BRITNEY SPEARS

"Lucky"

She's so lucky, she's a star
But she cry, cry, cries in her lonely heart, thinking
If there's nothing missing in my life
Then why do these tears come at night

this yet again is to do with the relationship i had back in october there is no further reason to explain.

SHONTELLE

"T-Shirt"

Gotta be strong gotta be strong but Im
Really hurtin now that you're gone
I thought maybe I'd do some shopping
But I couldnt get past the door and

Now I dont know, now I dont know If Im
Ever really gonna let you go
And I couldnt even leave my apartment
I'm stripped down, torn up about it

Wind me up, put me down, start me up and watch me go!
I'll be running circles around you sooner than you know!
A little off-center and I'm outta tune, just kicking this can along the avenue.
But I'm alright.

From the song Jerk It Out by The Caesars.

I feel this verse really describes me. I get wound up, put down, (:p) then I do whatever I have to do. Soon, I just CBA to do the stuff I have to do because it's so boring, like a vicious cycle, so I let it all go (Going off-center) and... yeah. Don't care. Go kick a can down an avenue or whatever. :vlol:

Indica - Hold my hand

Hold my hand if my leg falters
Carry me, when my straw collapses
Let me fly from the shadows into the light
Carry me under the aegis of your wings
For my spirit is weak, a slave of luck
It's temple is fragile and slim
With me you'll walk over this bridge,
Morning and the last evening?

I just love that song <3
It's refrain.

When I have hard and feels like all is coming through, I listen this song about million times. "Carry me, when my straw collapses" etc...

Indica is band from Finland and this is only a translation from original.

Celine Dion: Where Does My Heart Beat Now

So much to believe in - We were lost in time
Everything I needed
I feel in your eyes
Always thought of keeping -
Your heart next to mine
But now that seems so far away
Don't know how love could leave
Without a trace
Where do silent hearts go?

Where does my heart beat now
Where is the sound
That only echoes through the night
Where does my heart beat now
I can't live without
Without feeling it inside
Where do all the lonely hearts go

Candle in the water - Drifting helplessly
Hiding from the thunder-
Come and rescue me
Driven by hunger -
Of the endless dream

I'm searching for the hand that I can hold
I'm reaching for the arms that let me know
Where do silent hearts go?

Where does my heart beat now
Where is the sound
That only echoes through the night
Where does my heart beat now
I can't live without
Without feeling it inside
Where do all the lonely hearts go
Where do all the lonely hearts go

Then one touch overcomes the silence
Love still survives
Two hearts needing one another
Give me wings to fly

Where does my heart beat now
Where is the sound
That only echoes through the night
Where does my heart beat now
I can't live without
Without feeling it inside

I've got someone to give my heart to
Feel it getting stronger and stronger
And stronger
And I feel inside

Hearts are made to last
Till the end of time

Evanscene - My Immortal

I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

[Chorus:]
When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

You used to captivate me
By your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

[Chorus]

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along

[Chorus]

Live - Forever may not be long enough.

This world is never enough, and I'm not givin it up
My faith in love is like blood, I'd spill it freely for some
My faith in love is like blood, it flows in everyone
Don't stop to look at the clock, forever wont be long enough

Call it idealism wrapped within the folds of realism; Especially given the fact that people have such a jaded view on partnerships and high divorce rates. Whereas its true that love (to the point of giving someone your all; Your mind, body and soul) will only be given out to a select few (in my case... Only one) but for that one person it truly should be and always will be "All and everything" (from my stand point anyway.)

Such a strong passionate union sees time as irrelevent in the idealistic standpoint. However reality of mortality says otherwise. So my heart truly aches at the very thought of the fact that there will be a day when death will take her away from me... Hence I cannot stop to look at the clock.

Forever really is not enough.

This is an important song to me:

I can't use what I can't abuse
And I can't stop when it comes to you
You burned me out but I'm back at your door
Like Joan of Arc coming back for more

I nearly died
I nearly died
I nearly died

I came to cut you up
I came to knock you down
I came around to tear your little world apart

I came to shut you up
I came to drag you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
And break your soul apart

You burn and burn to get under my skin
You've gone too far, now I won't give in
You crucified me but I'm back in your bed
Like Jesus Christ coming back from the dead

I nearly died
I nearly died
I nearly died

I came to knock you up
I came to cut you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
I came to rip you up
I came to shut you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
And break your soul apart

I nearly died
I nearly died
I nearly died

I came to cut you up
I came to knock you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
I came to shut you up
I came to suck you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
Tear your little world apart
Tear your little world apart
And break your soul apart

I can't stop when it comes to you
I can't stop when it comes to you
When it comes to you
When it comes to you

(Some lyrics are Beatles inspired)
I'm full of hate and spite so this song was a great way to express myself.
The lyrics, "burn and burn to get under my skin" emphasises how people can aggravate you. The choruses are a little nonsense but that shows how angry she is.

These lyrics mean a lot to me, it reminds me of what I used to believe in. I didn't believe god existed and I wanted proof he did, I was constantly blaming my issues on the fact that "this so called god" wasn't helping if he did exist. I don't believe in that anymore, I believe there is a god and he put me through a lot of crap as a test in life. And when I listen to that song it reminds me of how I used to be, and it's by my favorite band Bayside.

Dear Your Holiness

Hey mom, they left me here alone
Someone save me, someone save me
Hey god, I'm out here on my own
So now will you save me now

I think its funny you've been quiet for so long
When you're quiet no one proves you wrong
And dear your holiness
Your army's safe and sound
Down here dying for you

And I don't know how they found me, found me here
And I don't know how they found me, found me here

Maybe you can trick a lot of them
Maybe if you fool the best of them
The rest will come around

We're all scared
So they dressed you up in all these
Different names
I've gotta find peace with myself
Before I give you all
Before I give you anything at all

I think its funny you've been quiet for so long
When you're quiet no one proves you wrong
And dear your holiness
Your army's safe and sound
They're down here dying for you

And I don't know how they found me, found me here
And I don't know how they found me, found me here

Maybe you can trick a lot of them
Maybe if you fool the best of them
The rest will come around (around)

Been thinking that there's something more
And that you'd come down and you tell me yourself
Now I realize its just a waste of time
Another penny thrown down the well

And I don't know how they found me, found me here
And I don't know how they found me, found me here
And I don't know how they found me, found me here
(Dear your holiness, army's safe and sound)
And I don't know how they found me, found me here
(Dear your holiness, army's safe and sound)

Maybe you can trick a lot of them
Maybe if you fool the best of them
They'll come around

I like a lot of songs with lyrics that are personal to me so i can't really think of just one....but,

This song by a band called Pram is actually also called "Pram".
I find it really interesting as the singer Rosie sings from the perspective of a depressed woman that is pregnant. The music matches the lyrics too, very lo-fi and grim conjuring up imagery of an industrial city suburb, dank rooms, early 90's mass unemployment, that kinda era.. blah blah....

Pram

I'm a pregnant stick of chalk
My belly touches the floor
Dressed inside a parachute

Every morning I wake
I'm sick into a pan
Can't get through the door anymore

I can't dance and I can't walk
I can't stand and I'm alone
I just want to shed this weight
To feel free, afloat, a feather

She brought me a pram
Patted my stomach and listened
Said it was a monster
Said it was a monster

A big black hulk chariot
It stands in the hall

A big black hulk chariot
It stands in the hall

The cat's already ****ed in it

She said it was a monster

Well, I was wrong
To live for a dream

I would never dream, no
I still wish you gone
And I will live alone

It really means a lot to me because I am angry and frustrated. :D

On the topic of being lazy, I'll just repost my post from the "Soundtrack of your Life" thread (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=147358) from a couple of months ago. It includes some samples of lyrics, but all titles are chosen for their theme, often of course expressed in the lyrics.

M2M - Miss Popular (not on YouTube :/)
I used to be very popular in my childhood, say, up to the age of 16. This song actually portrays a bad kind of popularity, but I used it anyway, also because people always made fun of me during that time (and later on) for liking bands like M2M :p

Tomb Raider 2 - Venice Violins (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDTbF4-VLvI)
Well, Tomb Raider was actually a big part of my life at a certain age, I was quite obsessed :p Venice Violins is my favourite musical piece from the Tomb Raider series.

Bobby Prince - DOOM II - Endgame Music (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpymgMlV2po)
Another game I still enjoy, one of the few constants throughout all these years, is DOOM.

187 Lockdown - Kung Fu (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiQFmErlUWw)
I loved this song, and the video clip as well :p As you may have seen (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=3486794&postcount=13) in the memories thread, I am/used to be a martial artist. At some point in life this was a huge part of me, in fact martial arts were my one and only ambition at that time. I even thought about going to a martial arts monastery.

Alas, from then on, my life got a very sad turn.

Emilie Autumn - The Art of Suicide (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPrD-Bowbr4)

Diva Destruction - The Broken Ones (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeJNyWS0PtQ)
"For the pleasure, for the knife / Steal the treasure, steal your life"

I became severely depressed, ruining my life entirely at the time, as well as parts of it I still have to live with.
Next to self mutilation, music was a way for me to cope with this. I listened mostly to very aggressive things, or then things I could emotionally sing along to, like:

:wumpscut: - Hang Him Higher (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75HTp2ONGoI)
After Forever - Tortuous Threnody (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjUC0J2vDWQ)
Blind Guardian - Nightfall (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OB2m1MBlS-4)
Dimmu Borgir - Blessings Upon The Throne of Tyranny (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UidSriRb6eo)
Suicide Commando - One Nation Under God (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CLhvIxtsIU)
My Dying Bride - She Is The Dark (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKV62cKwkLs)

During this depression, I did get a girlfriend.

Blutengel - Seelenschmerz (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flvzX8eRJ0s)
"Glaubst du noch an meine lŁgen / Willst du dich nur selbst betrŲgen / Krallst dich viel zu fest an mich / Bitte, bitte glaub mir nicht"
("Do you still believe my lies / Do you want to betray yourself / You're attaching yourself too much to me / Please, please don't believe me")
I had to warn her about the effects of the depression - I rationally thought I loved her, but ... I could not feel it, as I couldn't feel anything. As much as she meant to me, I could not say for certain I loved her.

Enigma - I'll Love You... I'll Kill You (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsuUHbjXA7Q)
There were more issues because of my depression... I remember actually wanting to kill her once - for no reason whatsoever. This lasted only a minute or so, but it was quite shocking.

Apoptygma Berzerk - Coma White (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmv4QgSvgck)
"A pill to make you numb / A pill to make you dumb / A pill to make you anybody else / But all the things in this world / Won't save her from herself"
After many years of necessarily increasing the dosage of antidepressants I was up to such a high dose that I was almost a zombie. I just dragged myself through life.

This was also the period I started listening to much more quiet, emotional music, such as:

Helium Vola - Mahnung (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cR7GfUdupnI)
Dead Can Dance - As The Bell Rings The Maypole Spins (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENzm3OJbw4o)
Eric Satie - Gnossiene No. 1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIVp05sEPhE)

Carl Orff - Carmina Burana - In Taberna Quando Sumus (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6hD2DOxpms)
This was also a period in which I did not do anything that was healthy. I moved town, didn't have a dojo to practice martial arts in anymore, and was too numb to do any effort in finding a new one. I got fatter and my condition seriously went to a point of me being exhausted after going up the stairs.

Within Temptation - See Who I Am (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsOhvk5oYPc)
I decided to quit the medication cold turkey. While this was a very dangerous move, and I may well be slipping back into depression as we speak, it was a good move at the time and has opened me up to many new things in life. I now have a lot of ambitions and interests, while before, I simply wouldn't have cared about anything.

Funker Vogt - Take Care! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrbldA4Mqvo) (I really wish there was a better version online, this doesn't do the song justice)
"We are living in a nightmare / We call it normal life / The time is reached that we take care / And stop dancing on the knife"
Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds - As I Sat Sadly By Her Side (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRnNMsfLyPI)
"And God does not care for your benevolence / Anymore than he cares for the lack of it in others / Nor does he care for you to sit / At windows in judgement of the world he created / While sorrows pile up around you / Ugly, useless and over-inflated"
The world itself and the global society is one of the things I care greatly for, and I am a strong atheist.

Within Temptation - Mother Earth (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reGlno9aUpw)
There is nothing I like more than beautiful nature. I love to just be in it, take pictures of it, and travel to wherever it is.

VNV Nation - Epicentre (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woIiLtWzXAQ)
"I can't say that you're losing me / But I must be that which I am / Though I know where this could take me"
I am happy with who I am, but, and this may well be a result of my depression, I am hardly emotional, which is a problem for my current girlfriend.

Thanks for sharing, Punaxe (for the second time :p). That was really personal and kind fascinating to read. :tmb: You're brave for making that stuff public (again;)).

I wonder myself sometimes if I perhaps shouldn't be that open on the Internet, but I don't see what harm could come from telling the truth. :)

Okays then. I'll copy and paste my post from the Soundtrack Of Your Life thread, if you want something 'interesting.' :p Though, I find my one boring.

1. W.A.M.S - Fall Out Boy (Especially the first line: "I'm a young one, stuck in an old young's head." And the chorus describes the way I feel about people who are self absorbed and vein. The second verse describes how sometimes I let people walk over me, despite putting on a confident act.)

2. Turn It Up - Robots In Disguise (This really describes my anxiety and sort of want that I sometimes want to just "Crawl into the speakers and turn up the volume," just so I can escape the panic attacks etc.)

3. The Kill - 30 Seconds To Mars (This basically describes how much I want to be with someone, but they'll probably end up hurting me because I make stupid descisions. Or because I only long for people, and they never want me back.)

4. Northern Downpour - Panic At The Disco (This describes what I want my life to be like when I'm older. I want it to be like a neverending night of a dreamy type of love. "I know the world's a broken bone, but melt your headaches call it home," really get at my heart strings. And; "If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed. Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea. For diamonds do appear to be, just like broken glass to me." Is basically what I want my life to be like. I don't want to care about riches like diamonds and all that stuff, I just want life to be a dream. A neverending dream.)

5. Creep - Radiohead (Again, this describes my want for love. But my feelings that I'm not good enough for someone. And that I'll just be a little creep and a weirdo.)

6. Teenagers - My Chemical Romance (This is just me in general. Hating that adults treat us kids like we're all trouble making little arseholes who will kill you. And how they think we're all the same for the way we dress or the way we look. Also the: "The boys and girls in the clique, the awful names that they stick, you're never gonna fit in much, kid." Really does describe me. It's like, the 'popular' kids label me as being weird. But. I don't really care.)

7. Human - The Killers (This is just the way I feel about life sometimes. I don't know how to describe it, it's like, I question reality. I ask: "Are we human? Or are we dancers?" Like, are we just pupetts for somebodie's entertainment? Are we humans? Are we just a bunch of cells bought together for no reason?)

8. Mayonaise - The Smashing Pumpkins ("I just want to be me." That line is pretty self-explanatory.)

9. The Trick To Life - The Hoosiers (It's basically just explaining me. About how I think about life to much and reality.

Especially this verse:
" You'd kill for answers but learn to live with,
Questions, Who what why how and if,
I'll sit back detached tear our your hair,
Oh but on the contrary..." )

10. When I Grow Up - Garbage ("When I grow up, I'll be stable. When I grow up I'll turn the tables." - That's basically what I want to happen when I get older. I don't want to be this little anxious person. I want to be able to cope with every day tasks without getting panicky.)

That's how I always saw it. That pretty much made me look up to this song and band. Though apparently it has sexual undertones, like the reference to Shirley's fetishes 0.o

Folks, this is a thread about lyrics and what they mean to you, not a chance to nitpick people's choices, belittle or think that you have the G-d given right to say what you please. If you can't keep to the topic and post in a polite and constructive manner, then get out. I want this to be a happy forum, not one full of strife. For anyone not aware of what I am referring to, you're fine. For those that know what I mean, heed my advice. Thank you.

Now, back to the topic at hand :)

^^ Did anyone else get that pre-diarrhoea feeling from reading that...

Anyway...:pi:

Narrow mind would persecute it,
Die a little to get to it.
(But now I've started learning how.)
I leave it open.
I kept it in a cage,
Watched it weeping, but I made it stay.
(But now I've started learning how.)
I leave it open.
I leave it open.

Kate Bush's Leave It Open explores the insanity of the mind - which is right up my alley cause you know me, I'm a lost cause.

Oh God :eek: If that's about what I said, I wasn't nitpicking Nannon's choice, I was just commenting and agreeing. Sorry just in case :o
