I thought I would start a thread on Song Lyrics, my life revolves around music and I love songs that are lyricly driven. Post your faves, doesn't have to be the entire song, could just be a line or a verse that gets you when you hear it.
Here are some of mine to start:

Tori Amos - Putting the Damage on
glue
stuck to my shoes
does anyone know why you play with an orange rind
you say you packed my things
and divided what was mine
you're off to the mountain top
i say her skinny legs could use sun
but now i'm wishing
for my best impression
of my best angie dickinson
but now i've got to worry
cause boy you still look pretty
when you're putting the damage on

Fiona Apple - Paper Bag
And I went crazy again today,
Looking for a strand to climb
Looking for a little hope
Baby said he couldn't stay, wouldn't put his lips to mine,
And a fail to kiss is a fail to cope
I said, "Honey, I don't feel so good, don't feel justified
Come on put a little love here in my void," - he said
"It's all in your head," and I said, "So's everything" -
But he didn't get it - I thought he was a man
But he was just a little boy

Coldplay - Yellow
Your skin,
Oh yeah your skin and bones,
Turn into something beautiful,
And you know for you,
I'd bleed myself dry for you,
I'd bleed myself dry

Ani Difranco - Adam and Eve
you rhapsodize about beauty
and my eyes glaze
everything i love is ugly
i mean really, you would be amazed
just do me a favor
it's the least that you can do
just don't treat me like i am
something that happened to you

Did I mention you have good taste in music?

Barenaked Ladies - Blame it On Me

Here we are again
and we're looking at each other as if each other were to blame.
You think you're so smart, but I've seen you naked
and I'll probably see you naked again.


The Cure - Just Like Heaven

Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream she said
The one that makes me laugh she said
And threw her arms around my neck
Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
Iíll run away with you
Iíll run away with you
Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make her glow
Why are you so far away? she said
Why wonít you ever know that Iím in love with you
That Iím in love with you

Jane's Addiction - Mountain Song

Comin' down the mountain
One of many children
Everybody has
Their own opinion
Everybody has
Their own opinion
Holding it back
Hurts so bad
Jumped out of my flesh
And i said
Cash in!
Cash in now honey

Free Bird

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on, now,
'Cause there's too many places I've got to see.
But, if I stayed here with you, girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you can not change.
And this bird you can not change.
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.

Bye, bye, baby its been a sweet love.
Though this feeling I can't change.
But please don't take it so badly,
'Cause Lord knows I'm to blame.
But, if I stayed here with you girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you'll never change.
And this bird you can not change.
And this bird you can not change
Lord knows, I can't change.
Lord help me, I can't chaye-ea-ea-ea-.
Lord, I can't change.
Won't you fly... high...free... bird.. (yeah).


Dixie Lyrics

I wish I was in the land of cotton,
old times there are not forgotten,
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.
In Dixie land where I was born in, early on a frosty mornin',
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.

Chorus:
Then I wish I was in Dixie, hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie land I'll take my stand, to live and die in Dixie,
Away, away, away down south in Dixie,
Away, away, away down south in Dixie.


Georgia on My Mind

Georgia-Georgia
The whole day through
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind

I said Georgia-Georgia
A song of you comes as sweet and clear as moon light through the pines
Other arms reach out to me, Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see the road leads back to you

I said Georgia-Oh Georgia
No peace I find
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind
Other arms reach out to me, Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see the road leads back to you.

Ohhhh Georgia-Georgia
No peace-no peace I find
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind
I said just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind

Desperado Lyrics

Desperado, why donít you come to your senses?
You been out ridiní fences for so long now
Oh, youíre a hard one
I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasiní you
Can hurt you somehow

Doní you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
Sheíll beat you if sheís able
You know the queen of heats is always your best bet

Now it seems to me, some fine things
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you canít get

Desperado, oh, you ainít gettiní no youger
Your pain and your hunger, theyíre driviní you home
And freedom, oh freedom well, thatís just some people talkiní
Your prison is walking through this world all alone

Donít your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky wonít snow and the sun wonít shine
Itís hard to tell the night time from the day
Youíre loosiní all your highs and lows
Ainít it funny how the feeling goes away?

Desperado, why donít you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be raininí, but thereís a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you, before itís too late

Thank you Jersey!! You too!! I LOVE BNL!! I've seen them 5 times so far... Or it could be 6 times, I can't remember.
This is my fave line/verse from "Blame it on Me"
Yes, dear, I love you,
But sometimes I think that love's not enough for you
So you want to play mind games
Well that's fine, go ahead; la la la, I can't hear you

My favorite right now is by Rob Thomas (its so beautiful)

Lonely No More

now it seems to me
That you know just what to say
but words are only words
can you show me something else
can you swear to me
that you'll always be this way
show me how you feel
more than ever, baby

i don't want to be lonely no more
i don't wanna have to pay for this
i don't wanna know the lover at my door
is just another heartache on my list
i don't wanna be angry no more
but you know i could never stand for this
so when you tell me that you love me
know for sure
i don't wanna be lonely anymore

its hard for me
with my heart still on the mend
open up to me
like you do your girlfriends
you sing to me
and its harmony
girl what you do to me is everything
make me say anything
just to get you back again
why can't we just try

i don't wanna be lonely no more
i don't wanna have to pay for this
i don't wanna know the lover at my door
is just another heartache on my list
i don't wanna be angry no more
but you know i could never stand for this
so when you tell me that you love me
know for sure
i don't wanna be lonely any more

what if i was good to you
what if you were good to me
what if i could hold you
till i feel you move inside of me
what if it was paradise
what if we were symphonies
what if i gave all my life to
find some way to stand beside you

i don't wanna be lonely no more
i don't wanna have to pay for this
i don't wanna know the lover at my door is just another heartache on my list
i don't wanna be angry no more
but you know i could never stand for this
so when you tell me that you love me
know for sure
i don't wanna be lonely any more

It's Knowing that your door is always open & your path is free to walk
that tends to make me leave my sleeping bag rolled up & stashed behind your couch.
& it's knowing I'm not shackled by forgotten words & bonds...
& the ink stains that have dried upon some line
that keeps you in the backroads by the rivers of my memories...
Keeps you ever gentle on my mind.

It's not clinging to the rocks & ivy planted on their columns now that binds me,
or something that somebody said because they thought we fit togeather walking.
It's just knowing that the world will not be cursing or forgiving...
as I walk along some railroad track & find...
that you're waving from the backroads...by the rivers of my memories...
& for hours you're just gentle on my mind.

Though the wheat fields & the clothslines & the junkyards & the highways come between us...
& some other woman's crying to her mother 'cause she turned & I was gone.
I still might run in silence...tears of joy might stain my face...
& the summer sun might burn me 'till I'm blind...
but not to where I cannot see you walking on the backroads,
by the rivers flowing gentle on my mind.

I dip my cup of soup back from the gurgling crackling* cauldron in some trainyard.
My beard, a roughening coalpile, & a dirty hat pulled low across my face.
Through cupped hands 'round a tin can, I pretend to hold you to my breast & find...
that you're waving from the backroads...by the rivers of my memories
ever smiling...ever gentle on my mind!

(Gentle on my mind by John Hartford)
A Masterpiece! I wish I'd written it!

Extreme-More than words

Saying I love you is not the words i want to hear from you
Its not that i want you not to say it but if you only knew
now easy it would be top show me jow you feel
more than words is all you have to do to make it real
then you wouldnt have to say that you love me cause id already know

what would you do if my heart was tore in two
more than words to show you feel that your love for me is real
what would you say if i took those words away
then you couldnt make things knew just by saying i love you

now that i have tried to talk to you and make you understand
all you have to do is close eyes and just reach out your hands
and touch me hold me close dont ever let me go
more than words is all i ever needed you to show
then you wouldnt have to say you love me cause id already know

what would you do if my heart was tore in two
more than words to show you feel that your love for me is real
what would you say if i took those words away
then you couldnt make things knew just by saying i love you

I love this song so much its really special to me i cry every time i hear it!

Incubus - Drive

Sometimes I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear
And I cant help but ask myself how much I'll let the fear take the wheel and steer
It's driven me before, it seems to have a vague
Haunting mass appeal
Lately I'm beginning to find that I should be the one behind the wheel
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
With open arms and open eyes yeah
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there, I'll be there
So if I decide to waiver my chance to be one of the hive
Will I choose water over wine and hold my own and drive, oh oh
It's driven me before, it seems to be the way
That everyone else get around
Lately, I'm beginning to find that when I drive myself, my light is found
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
With open arms and open eyes yeah
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there, I'll be there
Would you choose water over wine
Hold the wheel and drive
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
With open arms and open eyes yeah
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there, I'll be there

Home

Another summer day
has come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home
Mmmmmmmm

May be surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I just wanna go home
Oh I miss you, you know

And Iíve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
ďIím fine baby, how are you?Ē
Well I would send them but I know that itís just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that

Another aeroplane
Another sunny place
Iím lucky I know
But I wanna go home
Mmmm, Iíve got to go home

Let me go home
Iím just too far from where you are
I wanna come home

And I feel just like Iím living someone elseís life
Itís like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right
And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
But this was not your dream
But you always believed in me

Another winter day has come
And gone away
in either Paris or Rome
And I wanna go home
Let me go home

And Iím surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel alone
Oh, let me go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

Let me go home
Iíve had my run
Baby, Iím done
I gotta go home
Let me go home
It'll all be all right
Iíll be home tonight
Iím coming back home

Dido - See the Sun
I'm comin' 'round to open the blinds
You can't hide here any longer
My God you need to rinse those puffy eyes
You can't last here any longer

And yes they'll ask you where you've been
And you'll have to tell them again and again

And you probably don't want to hear tomorrow's another day
Well I promise you you'll see the sun again
And you're asking me why pain's the only way to happiness
And I promise you you'll see the sun again

Come on take my hand
We're going for a walk, I know you can
You can wear anything as long as it's not black
Please don't mourn forever
She's not coming back

And yes they'll ask you where you've been
And you'll have to tell them again and again

And you probably don't want to hear tomorrow's another day
Well I promise you you'll see the sun again
And you're asking me why pain's the only way to happiness
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
And I promise you you'll see the sun again

Do you remember telling me you found the sweetest thing of all
You said one day this was worth dying for
So be thankful you knew her at all
But it's no more

And you probably don't want to hear tomorrow's another day
Well I promise you you'll see the sun again
And you're asking me why pain's the only way to happiness
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
I promise you you'll see the sun again

The Seventh Stranger - Duran Duran

those words are all remainders
echoes growning in the heart of twilight
they lay back laughing at naivety's star
awaken all those whispers
the dusty shadow of a passing favour
I wouldn't say that you were ruthless or right
I couldn't see from so far

was I chasing after rainbows
one thing for sure you never answered when I called
and I wiped away the water from my face
to look through the eyes of a stranger
for rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
trading in my shelter for danger
I'm changing my name just as the sun goes down
in the eyes of a stranger

can't tell the real from reflection
when all these faces look the same to me
in every city such a desolate dream
some days are strange to number
some say the seventh sounds a little bit stranger
a year of sundays seems to have drifted right by
(I could have sworn) in one evening

and I'm not seized in desperation
no steel reproaches on the table from before
but I still can feel those splinters of ice
I look through the eyes of a stranger

for rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
trading in my shelter for danger
I changing my name just as the sun goes down
in the eyes of a stranger

I must be chasing after rainbows
one thing for sure you never answer when I call
and I wipe away the water from my face
to look through the eyes of a stranger
for rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
trading in my shelter for danger
I'm changing my name just as the sun goes down
walking away like a stranger
from rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
trading in my shelter for danger
I'm changing my name just as the sun goes down
in the eyes of a stranger

My favorite song ever "Every Season" by Nichole Nordeman.

Every evening sky, an invitation
To trace the patterned stars
And early in July, a celebration
For freedom that is ours
And I notice You
In childrenís games
In those who watch them from the shade
Every drop of sun is full of fun and wonder
You are summer

And even when the trees have just surrendered
To the harvest time
Forfeiting their leaves in late September
And sending us inside
Still I notice You when change begins
And I am braced for colder winds
I will offer thanks for what has been and was to come
You are autumn

And everything in time and under heaven
Finally falls asleep
Wrapped in blankets white, all creation
Shivers underneath
And still I notice you
When branches crack
And in my breath on frosted glass
Even now in death, You open doors for life to enter
You are winter

And everything thatís new has bravely surfaced
Teaching us to breathe
What was frozen through is newly purposed
Turning all things green
So it is with You
And how You make me new
With every seasonís change
And so it will be
As You are re-creating me
Summer, autumn, winter, spring

OH good topic. Music is the muse that moves me.

Vienna- Billy Joel
Slow down you crazy child
You're so ambitious for a juvenile
But then if you're so smart tell me why
You are still so afraid?

Where's the fire, what's the hurry about?
You better cool it off before you burn it out
You got so much to do and only
So many hours in a day

But you know that when the truth is told
That you can get what you want
Or you an just get old
You're gonna kick off before you even get halfway through
When will you realize...vienna waits for you





His Eye Is On the Sparrow, Ok this is gospel or something, so I don't mean to offend anyone and I'm not preaching, I don't even listen to this type of music normally lol.But this is the song I sing whenever I'm emotionally distraught.

Why should i feel discouraged
Why should the shadows come
Why should my heart feel lonely
And long for heaven and home?
When jesus is my portion
My constant friend
Is he
His eye is on the sparrow
I know he watches me
His eye is on the sparrow
I know he watches me

I sing because i'm happy
I sing because i'm free
His eye is on the sparrow
I know he watches me
His eye, his eye is on the sparrow
I know he watches
I know he watches
I know he watches me

I sing because i'm happy
I sing because i'm free
His eye is on the sparrow
I know, i know, i know he watches over
He watches over me




My Imaginary- Evanescence

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.


Love Eve 6 but not going to post any specific lyrics because they're slightly objectionable ;)


Love Zeppelin but impossible to pick one song.

JAYDE! That song has to be my favorite from Evanescence!

I can't believe no one has listed Jewel....she is so deep lyrically and her voice is so great!
I wonít walk away-Jewel

A lonely street lamp
Iím out on the street walking home
A small pale blur
Leaving trails like a snail I move so slow
Time can bruise*violent indigo
Rush home to your arms
You soothe my weary soul

Wrong or right be mine tonight
Harsh world be damned weíll make a stand
Love can bind but mine is blind
Others stray, but I wonít walk away
Walk away

The clubs are full
Of couples resisting being one
They wear their youth
Like badges that tarnish all too soon
But weíll be a team
Our two will be one
Love will be our fortress
When all else comes undone

Wrong or right be mine tonight
Harsh world be damned
Weíll make a stand
Love can bind but mine is blind
Others stray, but I wonít walk away
Walk away

Sometimes the world donít make sense
Small children filled with violence
Light or night
Shine through the night

Wrong or right be mine tonight
Harsh world be damned
Weíll make a stand
Love can bind but mine is blind
Others stray, but I wonít walk away
Walk away




Absence of fear --Jewel

Inside my skin
There is this space...
It twists and turns
It bleeds and aches

Inside my heart
Thereís an empty room.
Itís waiting for lightning;
Itís waiting for you

I am wanting, and...
I am needing you
To be here
Inside the absence of fear

Muscles and sinew
Velvet and stone...
This vessel is haunted
It creaks and moans

My bones call to you
In a separate skin.
I make myself translucent
To let you in, boy...

I am wanting, and...
I am needing you
To be here
Inside the absence of fear

There is the splendor of this
Secret inside of me
And it knows that youíre no stranger,
Youíre my gravity

My hands will adore you
Through all darkness, and they will
Lay you out in moonlight
And reinvent your name

For I am wanting, and...
I am needing you
To be here...
I need you near...
Inside the absence of fear.


Oh--I have more, but there will be amny more opportunities for it.

Bri I love Jewel!! She helped me through my most recent breakup (along with Stevie Nicks, Ani Difranco, Tori Amos and others)!! These are some of my faves by her:
Cleveland

Went walking underneath the shadows
Where dark and sweet secrets lay
When night tonight falls gently down
Hearts helplessly fall to the ground
Underneath a velvet sky
Only words can lie

I wanna tell you everything
I wanna make your toes curl
You be my only boy
And I'll be your only girl
There's not much I can say
You're in Cleveland today
You're in Cleveland today

Stewardesses like Cosmo magazine
Vogue makes me nervous I feel so plain
I could the world fearlessly
If you would face it here with me
Just our four hands and four eyes
Traffic cops would compromise

I wanna tell you everything
I wanna make your toes curl
You be my only boy
And I'll be your only girl
There's not much I can say
You're in Cleveland today
You're in Cleveland today

[bridge]
Daffodils and roulette wheels and rusty automobiles
Somewhere our things share the same window sill
Somewhere our hearts exist independent of time
Somewhere we are whole
One body
One body and one mind

From the air things look so ridiculous
Our fears so small, our fights so vain
I wanna pilot a plane with you
So all our problems look small, too
It's only an inch from me to you
Depending on what map you use

I wanna tell you everything
I wanna make your toes curl
You be my only boy
And I'll be your only girl
There's not much I can say
Cuz you're in Cleveland today
Oh, you're in Cleveland today
You're in Cleveland today

Absence Of Fear

Inside my skin there is this space
It twists and turns
It bleeds and aches
Inside my heart there's an empty room
It's waiting for lightning
It's waiting for you
And I am wanting
And I am needing you here
Inside the absence of fear
Muscle and sinew
Velvet and stone
This vessel is haunted
It creaks and moans
My bones call to you
In their separate skin
I make myself translucent
To let you in, for
I am wanting
And I am needing of you here
Inside the absence of fear
there is this hunger
This restlessness inside of me
and it knows that you're no stranger
you're my gravity
My hands will adore you through all darkness aim
They will lay you out in moonlight
And reinvent your name
For I am wanting you
And I am needing you here
I need you near
Inside the absence of fear

I amost posted Cleaveland!

I think I could post every song from her!



Angel standing by Jewel

All through the night Iíll be standing over you
All through the night Iíll be watching over you
And through the bad dreams Iíll be right there, baby
Holding your hand, telling you everything is all right
And when you cry Iíll be right there
Telling you you were never anything less than beautiful
So donít you worry
Iím your Angel standing by

Break me Jewel

I will meet you
In some place
Where the light lends itself
To soft repose
I will let you undress me
But I warn you
I have thorns
Like any rose
And you could hurt me
With your bare hands
You could hurt me
With with the sharp end
Of what you say
But Iím lost to you now
And thereís no
Amount of reason
That could save me
So break me
Take me
Just let me
Feel your arms again
Break me
Iíll let you make me
Just let me
Feel your love again

Feels like being underwater
Now that Iíve let go
And lost control
Water kisses fill my mouth
Water fills my soul

So break me
Take me
Just let me
Feel your arms again
Break me
Make me
Just let me
Feel your love again

Kiss me once
Or maybe twice
Oh, it never felt so nice
So break me
Take me
Let me
Feel your arms again
Break me
Make me
Just let me
Feel your arms again
Just let me
Feel your love again


All of these I love to sing to!

I got chills! When I opened up this thread, Evanescence started playing on the radio!


Oooooo.............Bring Me To Life!

This jewel song has a lot of meaning to me....for the obvious reason stated in the title!
Daddy -- Jewel

My bones are tired, Daddy
I donít get enough sleep, I donít eat as good as I should, Daddy
Whatís that say about me?

Sometimes I sleep past noon, Daddy
Drink lots of black coffee and I smoke like a chimney
Yes, I left the refrigerator door half open, Daddy
Whatís that say about me?

Sometimes I want to rip out your throat, Daddy
For all those things you said that were mean
Gonna make you just as vulnerable as I was, Daddy
Whatís that say about me?

Sometimes I want to bash in your teeth, Daddy
Gonna use your tongue as a stamp
Gonna rip your heart out the way you did mine, Daddy
Go ahead and psychoanalyze that

ĎCause Iím your creation, Iím your love, Daddy
Grew up to be and do all those sick things you said Iíd do
Well last night I saw you sneak out your window with your white hood, Daddy
Whatís that say about you?
Iím sloppy, whatís that say about you?
Iím messy, whatís that say about you?

My bones are tired, Daddy.

"Nowhere Again"

cellophane flowers never happened for me
been sleeping the day off
watching the night fall
covering nowhere
filling my time share

there's a woman in the mirror in a firey state
as she motions to me I start turning away
she's lifting her dress up
trying to keep up

oh you'd be surprised
how we race

while our lives
erased

another moon on an everyday night
thinking the morning looking for alright
warming the blood flow
with poison I dont know why

maybe the rain stops following me
dripping the colors
running the daylight
over the cloud burst
hoping they don't burst

right before my eyes
erased

our lives
erased

we know we're lost we're lost we're nowhere now
we know we're lost we're lost we're nowhere now
now we know we're lost and nowhere now

maybe the rain will stop following me
with millions of colors reflected in daylight
right on the kickdrum
turning the sound up full

another alone on an everyday night
I think in the morning I think I'll be alright
watching the blood flow
no wonder I dont know why

theres a woman in the mirror in a firey state
she motions to me I start pulling away
she's lifting her dress up
all the way up

oh don't look surprised
erased

our lives
erased

our lives
erased

"The Leaves Are Gone"

The leaves are gone
Thereís ice on the river
Hold my hand to your heart and breathe
Together, we wonít make a sound
As we part for the winter
Of my life
ĎTil it ends
ĎTil this stops, and then?
Love?
Weíll see
While weíre left to grieve

"Pharaoh's Daughter"

Hold on!
The recent exchange
Is just another face arranged
By the knife edge of time
And just another waste of time

I wonder
Was that the pharaohís daughter
Or the wealth I still remember?

We were dressed in uniforms left over from the war
A tourniquet, an iron vest, our emblem was a star
The younger ones looked frightened
Left unguarded by the clouds
While sons of fire with trembling hands
Burned heroes to the ground

I wonder
Was that the famous daughter
Of the well-heeled revolving oh-so-fine?
While we were building caskets
For boys in leather jackets

The girlís quite familiar

And last but not least, "The Road Leads Where It's Led"

Cultivating sounds
For all the mothers who come near to find out

Calling pulse bombs, a response

With cotton in their ears
And goodbye kisses
For the ones in the ground

Collecting fallout from the blast

The road leads where itís led
While all the darlings cover earth
With bare hands
Theyíre blowing all the other kids away

We communicate by semaphore
No language, weíre got flags of our own

The road leads where itís led
The darlings cover earth with their hands
Theyíre blowing all the other kids away

Angels stole the show
The roaring seraph, singing thunder
Called the motherís children home

Blowing all the other kids away

We wonít be moved
We can see right through
All of your charms
Your clever disguise
Uncertainty fails
As heaven surrounds you

Blowing all the other kids away

Who I Am-----Jessica Andrews

If I live to be a hundred
And never see the seven wonders
That'll be alright
If I don't make it to the big leagues
If I never win a Grammy
I'm gonna be just fine
Cause I know exactly who I am

I am Rosemary's granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done my momma's still my biggest fan
Sometimes I'm clueless and I'm clumsy
But I've got friends that love me
And they know just where I stand
It's all a part of me
And that's who I am

So when I make a big mistake
And when I fall flat on my face
I know I'll be alright
Should my tender heart be broken
I will cry those teardrops knowing
I will be just fine
Cause nothing changes who I am

I am Rosemary's granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done my momma's still my biggest fan
Sometimes I'm clueless and I'm clumsy
But I've got friends that love me
And they know just where I stand
It's all a part of me
And that's who I am

I'm a saint and I'm a sinner
I'm a loser; I'm a winner
I am steady and unstable
I'm young, but I am able

I am Rosemary's granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done my momma's still my biggest fan
Sometimes I'm clueless and I'm clumsy
But I've got friends that love me
And they know where I stand
It's all a part of me
And that's who I am

I am Rosemary's granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done my momma's still my biggest fan
Sometimes I'm clueless and I'm clumsy
But I've got friends that love me
And they know where I stand
It's all a part of me
And that's who I am
That's who I am

Lemonheads - It's about time
Bite my tongue
And I wont say a word against anyone
But I don't wanna get my fingers wet
Unless it's an accident
Fell out on the street
Now I'm watching my shoes
And I grit my teeth
But I don't have to look that way
If I had half a say

It's about time
It's about time
It's about time
It's about time

Lick my lips
And I wont hear the end of this
All you need's a reassurance
Buy some time and come back for it
Before long, before it's gone
Patience is like bread, I say
I ran out of that yesterday
Enough about us lets talk about me
If not about you
Its not about sunshine
Its about time
Touch my leg
Its smooth but there's stubble there
I'll fall back and let em go
Only when i know you know
I don't know
Make me sure
Have your people contact mine
And keep your lawyer on the line

Dance Hall Crashers - Enough
It began with a mistake,
I donít know what was at stake
I realize I was to blame, I just want things to be the same
Iíll be the first to apologize and I know these things take time
I think of you and I see red even though you were alright in bed
Itís not that we donít get along, itís just that you are always wrong
At least you could pretend that I was right in the end
Why wonít you ever let this die, you can see how hard Iíve tried
Please donít hold this over my head,
Letsís just say enoughís been said

Enough is enough
I know I was to blame
I just want things to be the same
Just shut up and make it right

Well itsís been a long long time and Iíve realized my crime
I wanna leave it up to you
But you never seem to come through
Why donít you finish what you start
Before this whole thing falls apart
You know Iím beginning to think
That you drove me to drink
Not that Iím placing blame
But youíre giving me a bad name
Why wonít you eer let this die,
You can see how hard Iíve tried
I guess itís time to say,
F**k off Iím gone after today

Enough is enough
I know I was to blame
I just want things to be the same
Just shut up and make it right

I never thought this would be such a nightmare
Get over your bad self, I donít... I donít really care
I donít... I donít really care

Enough is enough
I know I was to blame
I just want things to be the same
Just shut up and make it right
Just shut up and make it right

This song is in my top 50 favorite songs of all time.....

Alison Krauss - Forget about it

Forget about it
I'm admittin' I was wrong
And I'll just take what's mine
And walk right out the door
Forget about it
I'll split and I'll be gone
And you'll have memories
You'll find hard to ignore
'Cause after all
I see you sometime
Maybe when I can't recall
How you drove me crazier
Forget about it
When forever's over
I won't remember how much
I loved you anymore
Forget about it
Put me out of your head
Now that you're free and easy
Out there on the town
Forget about it
When you're lying in bed just wishing
I was there to lay you down

'Cause after all
I see you sometime maybe
When you will recall
How I drove you crazier
Forget about those stars in your eyes
Laying by the fireside
Holding you tight
I can't remember when I felt so right
So just forget about it

I like When You Say Nothing at All


But I also can venture out from Jewel....one of them being Alanis Morrisette!

You owe me nothing in return -- Alanis Morissette

Iíll give you careless amounts of out right
Acceptance if you want it. Iíll give you
Encouragment to choose the path you want if you need it.

You can speak of anger and doubts,
Your fears and freak-outs and Iíll hold it.
You can share your so-called
Shamefilled accounts of times in your life and I wonít judge it.

And there are no strings attached,
You owe me nothing for giving the love that I give.
You owe me nothing for caring the way that I have.
I give you thanks for receiving, itís my privilege,
And you owe me nothing in return.

You can ask for space for yourself
And only yourself and Iíll grant it.
You can ask for freedom as was
Or time to revel and youíll have it.

You can ask to live by yourself
Or love someone else and Iíll support it.
You can ask for anything you want
Anything at all and Iíll understand it.

I bet youíre wondering when
The next payback youíll eventually drop.
I bet youíre wondering when my conditions or policies will force you to cough up.
I bet youíre wondering how far you now have danced moved back into dead.

This is the only kind of love
As I understand it that there really is.
You can express your deepest of thruths
Even if it means Iíll lose you and Iíll hear it.

You can fall into the abyss
On the way to your bliss
And Iíll empathize with.
You canít say that youíll have to skip town
To chase your passion and Iíll hear it.
You can leave and hit rock bottom have a mid-life chrisis and Iíll hold it.

"Early morning rain"
(Gordon Lightfoot)

In the early morning rain
with a dollar in my hand
and an aching in my heart
and my pockets full of sand
I'm a long ways from home
and I miss my loved one so
in the early morning rain
with no place to go


Out on runway number nine
big 707 set to go
well I'm out here on the grass
where the pavement never grows
well, the liquor tasted good
and the women all were fast
there she goes my friend
she's rolling out at last


Hear the mighty engines roar
see the silver bird on high
she's away & westward bound
far above the clouds she flies
where the morning rain don't fall
and the sun always shines
she'll be flying o'er my home
in about 3 hours time


This old airport's got me down
it's no earthly good to me
'cause I'm stuck here on the ground
cold & drunk as I can be
you cant jump a jet plane
like you can a freight train
so I'd best be on my way
in the early morning rain

If you ever did believe - Stevie Nicks

You've left me now
and it's seasoned my soul
And with every step you take,
I watch another part of you go...

I continue to build a wall...
You were so strong,
I fell to my knees...
And I don't think I can handle this at all...

One more night
I'd like to lie and hold you
Yes and feel...
To make you smile,
I'd like to be there for you--
Have you forgotten me?

And the days go by
Doing nothing about them...
How much time
will I have to spend?

My mind won't rest
and I don't sleep
Not even in my dreams...

If you ever did believe,
for my sake...
If you ever did believe....

And the days go by
Doing nothing about them...
How much time
will I have to spend?

ooo....ooo.....ooo...
Ooo baby don't leave me
ooo..ooo...ooo...ooo
I'm down on my knees...
ooo..ooo...ooo...ooo
begging you please...
ooo...ooo...ooo...ooo
baby don't leave me....
Did you ever believe?

Garth Brooks : The River


You know a dream is like a river
Ever changin' as it flows
And a dreamer's just a vessel
That must follow where it goes
Trying to learn from what's behind you
And never knowing what's in store
Makes each day a constant battle
Just to stay between the shores.. and

I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry

Too many times we stand aside
And let the waters slip away
'Til what we put off 'til tomorrow
Has now become today
So don't you sit upon the shoreline
And say you're satisfied
Choose to chance the rapids
And dare to dance the tide.. yes

I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry

And there's bound to be rough waters
And I know I'll take some falls
But with the good Lord as my captain
I can make it through them all.. yes

I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry

Yes, I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
'Til the river runs dry

Tim McGraw : Live Like you Were Dying

He said: "I was in my early forties,
"With a lot of life before me,
"An' a moment came that stopped me on a dime.
"I spent most of the next days,
"Looking at the x-rays,
"An' talking 'bout the options an' talkiní Ďbout sweet time."
I asked him when it sank in,
That this might really be the real end?
Howís it hit you when you get that kind of news?
Man whatcha do?

An' he said: "I went sky diving, I went rocky mountain climbing,
"I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu.
"And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter,
"And I gave forgiveness I'd been denying."
An' he said: "Some day, I hope you get the chance,
"To live like you were dyin'."

He said "I was finally the husband,
"That most the time I wasnít.
"An' I became a friend a friend would like to have.
"And all of a sudden goin' fishiní,
"Wasnít such an imposition,
"And I went three times that year I lost my Dad.
"Well, I finally read the Good Book,
"And I took a good long hard look,
"At what I'd do if I could do it all again,
"And then:

"I went sky diving, I went rocky mountain climbing,
"I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu.
"And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter,
"And I gave forgiveness I'd been denying."
An' he said: "Some day, I hope you get the chance,
"To live like you were dyin'."

Like tomorrow was a gift,
And you got eternity,
To think about what youíd do with it.
An' what did you do with it?
An' what can I do with it?
An' what would I do with it?

"Sky diving, I went rocky mountain climbing,
"I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu.
"And then I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter,
"And I watched Blue Eagle as it was flyin'."
An' he said: "Some day, I hope you get the chance,
"To live like you were dyin'."

"To live like you were dyin'."
"To live like you were dyin'."
"To live like you were dyin'."
"To live like you were dyin'."

Our Lady Peace - Life

How many times have you been pushed around
was anybody there
does anybody care
and how many times have your friends let you down
was anybody there
did anybody stare
how many times have your friends let you down
just open up your heart
just open up your mind
and how many times has your faith slipped away
well is anybody safe
does anybody pray
oh life is waiting for you
its all messed up but we're alive
oh life is waiting for you
its all messed up but we'll survive
how many days have you just slept away
is everybody high
is everyone afraid
how many times have you wished you were strong
have they ever seen your heart
have they ever seen your pain
oh life is waiting for you
its all messed up but we're alive
oh life is waiting for you
its all messed up but we'll survive
she gets high
she gets lost
she gets drowned by the cost
twice a day
every week
in all her life
she gets high
she gets lost
she gets drowned by the cost
twice a day
every week
in all her life
oh life is waiting for you
its all messed up but we're alive
oh life is waiting for you
its all messed up but we'll survive
oh life is waiting for you
its all messed up but we're alive
oh life is waiting for you
its all messed up but we're alive
its all messed up but we'll survive
its all messed up but we're alive
its all messed up but i will
i will survive

This is fun! Thought of a few more:

"Will the wind ever remember the names it has blown in the past? With its crush, its old age, and its wisdom, it whispers, 'No, this will be the last.'" - Jimi Hendrix, The Wind Cries Mary

"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." - Pink Floyd, Comfortably Numb
."
"And did we tell ya the name of the game, boy? We call it 'Riding the Gravy Train'." - Pink Floyd, Have A Cigar

"I don't need no arms around me and I don't need no drugs to calm me. I have seen the writing on the wall. Don't think I need anything at all." Pink Floyd, Another Brick in the Wall, Part 3

"They got a name for the winners in the world, I want a name when I lose." Steely Dan, Deacon Blues

LEARN TO FLY

Run and tell all of the angels
This could take all night
Think I need a devil to help me get things right
Hook me up a new revolution
Cause this one is a lie
We sat around laughing and watched the last one die
I'm looking to the sky to save me
Looking for a sign of life
Looking for something to help me burn out bright
I'm looking for a complication
Looking cause I'm tired of lying
Make my way back home when I learn to fly
I think I'm done nursing the patience
I can wait one night
I'd give it all away if you give me one last try
We'll live happily ever trapped if you just save my life
Run and tell the angels that everything is alright
I'm looking to the sky to save me
Looking for a sign of life
Looking for something to help me burn out bright
I'm looking for a complication
Looking cause I'm tired of trying

Forward yesterday
Makes me wanna stay
What they said was real
Makes me wanna steal
Livin' under house
Guess I'm livin', I'm a mouse
All's I gots is time
Got no meaning, just a rhyme

Take time with a wounded hand
'Cause it likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand
'Cause I like to steal
Take time with a wounded hand
'Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

I'm half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, I'm half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, I'm half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be

Feelin' uninspired
Think I'll start a fire
Everybody run
Bobby's got a gun
Think you're kinda neat
Then she tells me I'm a creep
Friends don't mean a thing
Guess I'll leave it up to me

Take time with a wounded hand
'Cause it likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand
Guess I like to steal
Take time with a wounded hand
'Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

I'm half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be

Take time with a wounded hand
'Cause it likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand
Guess I like to steal
Take time with a wounded hand
'Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

I'm half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray

This is my all time FAV song! I don't really have a reason for it :laugh:

Hotel California
The Eagles


On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway;
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself,
'This could be Heaven or this could be Hell'
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor,
I thought I heard them say...

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year, you can find it here

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

So I called up the Captain,
'Please bring me my wine'
He said,'We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine'
And still those voices are calling from far away,
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say...

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face
They livin' it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise, bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink champagne on ice
And she said 'We are all just prisoners here, of our own device'
And in the master's chambers,
They gathered for the feast
The stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can't kill the beast

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
'Relax,'said the night man,
We are programmed to receive.
You can checkout any time you like,
but you can never leave

Broken this fragile thing now
And I can't, I can't pick up the pieces
And I've thrown my words all around
But I can't, I can't give you a reason

I feel so broken up (so broken up)
And I give up (I give up)
I just want to tell you so you know

Here I go, scream my lungs out and try to get to you
You are my only one
I let go, there's just no one that gets me like you do
You are my only, my only one

Made my mistakes, let you down
And I can't, I can't hold on for too long
Ran my whole life in the ground
And I can't, I can't get up when you're gone

And something's breaking up (breaking up)
I feel like giving up (like giving up)
I won't walk out until you know

Here I go, scream my lungs out and try to get to you
You are my only one
I let go, there's just no one who gets me like you do
You are my only, my only one

Here I go so dishonestly
Leave a note for you my only one
And I know you can see right through me
So let me go and you will find someone

Here I go, scream my lungs out and try to get to you
You are my only one
I let go, there's just no one, no one like you
You are my only, my only one
My only one
My only one
My only one
You are my only, my only one

It's Because you were not careful"

Blue & Yellow - the Used

and it's all in how you mix the two
and it starts just where the light exists
it's a feeling that you cannot miss
and it burns a hole through everyone that feels it

well you're never gonna find it
if you're looking for it
won't come your way
well you'll never find it
if you're looking for it

should've done something but I've done it enough
by the way your hands were shaking
rather waste some time with you

and you never would have thought in the end
how amazing it feels just to live again
it's a feeling that you cannot miss
it burns a hole through everyone that feels it

well you're never gonna find it
if you're looking for it
won't come your way
well you'll never find it
if you're looking for it

should've done something but I've done it enough
by the way your hands were shaking
rather waste some time with you

should've said something but I've said it enough
by the way my words were faded
rather waste some time with you

waste some time with you
waste some time with you
waste some time with you
waste some time with you
waste some time with you

should've done something but I've done it enough
by the way your hands were shaking
rather waste my time with you

should've said something but I've said it enough
by the way my words were faded
rather waste my time with you

should've done something but I've done it enough
by the way my hands were shaking
rather waste some time with you

waste some time with you
waste some time with you
waste some time with you
waste some time with you
waste some time with you

Bush - Glycerine

Must be your skin that I'm sinkin in
Must be for real cause now I can feel
and I didn't mind
it's not my kind
not my time to wonder why
everything's gone white
and everything's grey
now your here now you away
I don't want this
remember that
I'll never forget where your at
don't let the days go by
glycerine

I'm never alone
I'm alone all the time
are you at one
or do you lie
we live in a wheel
where everyone steals
but when we rise it's like strawberry fields

If I treated you bad
you bruise my face
couldn't love you more
you got a beautiful taste
don't let the days go by
could have been easier on you
I coudn't change though I wanted to
could have been easier by three
our old friend fear and you and me
glycerine (repeat)
don't let the days go by
glycerine

I needed you more
when we wanted us less
I could not kiss just regress
it might just be
clear simple and plain
that's just fine
that's just one of my names
don't let the days go by
could've been easier on you
glycerine

Once again Solid....we are in complete agreement!


Behind Blue Eyes-Limp Bizkit
No one knows what itís like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes

Aní no one knows what itís like
To be hated
To be fated
To telling only lies

[Chorus:]
But my dreams
They arenít as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
Thatís never free

No one knows what itís like
To feel these feelinís
Like I do
And I blame you

No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain aní woe
Can show through

[Chorus: Repeat]

(Discover)
(L-I-M-P...
Say it...
Discover...)[x4]

No one knows what itís like
To be mistreated
To be defeated
Behind blue eyes

And no one knows how to say
That theyíre sorry
Aní donít worry
Iím not telling lies


This one has very special meaning to me!
Ice cream--Sarah McLachlan

Your love is better than ice cream
better than anything else that Iíve tried
and your love is better than ice cream
everyone here know how to fight
and itís a long way down
itís a long way down
itís a long way down to the place
where we started from
Your love is better than chocolate
better than anything else that Iíve tried
oh love is better than chocolate
everyone here knows how to cry
itís a long way down
itís a long way down
itís a long way down to the place
where we started from...

ANNIE'S SONG (John Denver)

You fill up me senses like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses come fill me again.

Come let me love you, let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you
Come let me love you, come love me again.

INSTRUMENTAL VERSE

...Let me give my life to you
Come let me love you, come love me again.

You fill up my senses like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.

Nice one Bess.

The 1st song that comes to my mind is, In My Life by the Beatles:

There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more.

That song always makes me tear up.

It Stoned Me - Van Morrison

Half a mile from the county fair
And the rain keep pourin' down
Me and Billy standin' there
With a silver half a crown
Hands are full of a fishin' rod
And the tackle on our backs
We just stood there gettin' wet
With our backs against the fence

Oh, the water
Oh, the water
Oh, the water
Hope it don't rain all day

Chorus:
And it stoned me to my soul
Stoned me just like Jelly Roll
And it stoned me
And it stoned me to my soul
Stoned me just like goin' home
And it stoned me

Then the rain let up and the sun came up
And we were gettin' dry
Almost let a pick-up truck nearly pass us by
So we jumped right in and the driver grinned
And he dropped us up the road
We looked at the swim and we jumped right in
Not to mention fishing poles

Oh, the water
Oh, the water
Oh, the water
Let it run all over me

Chorus

On the way back home we sang a song
But our throats were getting dry
Then we saw the man from across the road
With the sunshine in his eyes
Well he lived all alone in his own little home
With a great big gallon jar
There were bottles too, one for me and you
And he said Hey! There you are

Oh, the water
Oh, the water
Oh, the water
Get it myself from the mountain stream

BEAKER is below me!

Your Name on a Grain Of Rice - Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers

I see the sun settiní over America
Iím tryiní to leave my darker side behind
Feeliní my way down a blue desert highway
Wish my rear view mirror could tell me a lie
The harder I fight the stronger itís a cominí
I wipe the tears from my eyes
and keep on strumminí
Baby, I ainít runniní away
Iím tryiní to find you something better inside me
And now my second home is a third world cantina
I spend years alone in the days I canít see you
And to me the sunset sinkiní in the sea
Looks like my own bleediní corazon
Thereís a man cominí over here
Selliní silver and souvenirs
And I will pay full price
For your name on a grain of rice
I am a father, a son and a restless spirit
I can see the light but I can never get near it
What good is my love song
If you ainít around to hear it
I see the fighter planes tearingí across the desert sky
Do I curse them or cheer them on?
I still canít decideÖ.
But the silence they leave behind
Sounds like what I feel insideÖ
And now my second home is a third world cantina
I spend years alone in the days I canít see you
And to me the sunset sinkiní in the sea
Looks like my own bleediní corazon
Thereís a man cominí over here
Selliní silver and souvenirs
And I will pay full price
For your name on a grain of rice

Snakes and Ladders-Joss Stone

"In the game of love
It takes all you got
Just to keep it moving up
Don't you wanna reach the top
But heaven seems such a crazy dream
If your heart has room for doubt
You're neither in you're neither out

99 1/2 it just won't do
You gotta give me all of you
Not asking too much of a heart that's true
So tell me...

Chorus
What's the name of the game that we are playing
Boy whenever I think that we are winning
Then you roll the dice take a slide
Right back to the one from 99

Is it gonna go on like this forever
Are we gonna to take that last step together
Going round and round and up and down
Feels just like snakes and ladders

Baby don't it feel like a carousel
Where all the world is rushing by
But when it stops you realize
That you're right back where you started at
I need a little more than that
It time for us to face the facts

Whether to be or not to be
That is the question so it seems
We're going nowhere in between
So tell me...

Chorus
What's the name of the game that we are playing
Boy whenever I think that we are winning
Then you roll the dice take a slide
Right back to the one from 99

Is it gonna go on like this forever
Are we gonna to take that last step together
Going round and round and up and down
Feels just like snakes and ladders


Don't wanna play this game nomore
I wanna know right now for sure
What am I giving my heart for
Baby I need a little more
Don't leave me hanging on a string
Now that I gave you everything


Not when I play to win
Snakes and ladders

Chorus (2x)
What's the name of the game that we are playing
Boy whenever I think that we are winning
Then you roll the dice take a slide
Right back to the one from 99

Is it gonna go on like this forever
Are we gonna to take that last step together
Going round and round and up and down
Feels just like snakes and ladders"

"And after a while, you can work on points for style, like the club tie, the firm handshake, that certain look in the eye, the easy smile. You've got to be trusted by the people that you lie to, so that when they turn their back on you, you'll get the chance to put the knife in." Pink Floyd, Dogs

Enid - BNL (I love the entire song)

Enid we never really knew each other anyway.
Enid we never really knew each other anyway.

it took me a year to believe it was over,
and it took me two more to get over the loss.
I took a beating when you wrote me those letters,
and every time I remembered the taste of your lipgloss.

Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway
but Enid we never really knew each other anyway.

There were times when I wanted to hurt you,
and there were times when I know that I did.
There were times when I thought I would kill you,
but can you blame me I was only a kid.

Tell me why we never respected each other.
and tell me why I never believed that you were a person too.
I always thought that you fancied my brother.
I may not have liked it, oh but memory is a strange thing, oh, and Enid?
Enid I remember you.

Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway,
but Enid we never really knew each other anyway.

It took me a year to believe it was over,
and it took me two more to get over the loss.
I took a beating when I wrote you those letters,
and every time you told me to get lost.

Now it's not fair to say that it's
'cause I was three inches shorter then,
and it's not fair to say that it's 'cause
I was only fifteen years old.
But maybe it's fair to say it was a lack of communication,
I took a phone message, oh and speaking of communication; oh, and Enid,
Enid you got a cold.

I can get a job I can pay the phone bills
I can cut the lawn, cut my hair, cut off my cholesterol
I can work overtime I can work in a mine
I can do it all for you,
But I don't want to.


Call and Answer - BNL (This is my fave part, I love to sing it...)
But I'm warning you, don't ever do
those crazy, messed-up things that you do
If you ever do,
I promise you I'll be the first to crucify you
Now it's time to prove that you've come back
here to rebuild

To Wish Impossible Things - The Cure

remember how it used to be
when the sun would fill up the sky
remember how we used to feel
those days would never end
those days would never end

remember how it used to be
when the stars would fill the sky
remember how we used to dream
those nights would never end
those nights would never end

it was the sweetness of your skin
it was the hope of all we might have been
that fills me with the hope to wish
impossible things

but now the sun shines cold
and all the sky is grey
the stars are dimmed by clouds and tears
and all i wish
is gone away
all i wish
is gone away

all i wish is gone away

Incubus - Just a Phase


I am bottled, fizzy water, and you are shaking me up
You are a fingernail, running down the chalkboard
I thought I left in third grade
Now my only, consolation, is that this could not last forever
Even though you're singing and thinking
How well you've got it made

Who are you?
When will you be through?

Yeah, it's just a phase... It will be over soon
Yeah, it's just a phase
Yeah, it's just a phase

Call it 'women's, intuition', but I think I'm on to something here
Temporaryism has been the black plague
And the Jesus of our age
I know that I sound opinionated, maybe biased
And quite possibly jaded
But sooner than later
They'll be throwing quarters at you on the stage

Who are you?
When will you be through?

Yeah, it's just a phase... it will be over soon
Yeah, it's just a PHASE, and I'm waiting for it to be overdue, yeah

Uncalm, uncalm, uncalm

listen to the DJ just rappin' and things
once I get a message from you, I get all edgy
my minds racing but you know I'm not ready, uh, I say
for you, baby all our dreams trickle through
we are back in your teenage bedroom
Salvador Dali honeymoon, for you

It's like you and me on Plymouth Rock
embarking on a journey that I never thought
would happen to me so effortlessly
sparks flying, your laughter is a symphony
spring, what a little moonlight can do
soon the summer sun is on you
all the while we don't hear the news or feel blue

On the scales of desire your absence weighs
more than someone else's presence
I wanna kiss reason goodbye today
I wanna show it's purple essence
on your lips baby it'll fade away
return your natural iridescence
on the scales of desire your absence weighs
more than someone else's presence

You make me feel uncalm and I think I like it
make me think of a song that I could not write yet
melodies create themselves, I'm just a conduit
you make my heart accelerate and I'm on to it
for you baby there's so much that I will do
to be near the sweetness on you
funny everything seems so new when with you

On the scales of desire your absence weighs
more than someone else's presence
I wanna kiss reason goodbye today
I wanna show it's purple essence
on your lips baby it'll fade away
return your natural iridescence
on the scales of desire your absence weighs
more than someone else's presence

I'm sorry
I heard about the bad news today
A crowd of people around you
Telling you it's okay
And everything happens for a reason

When you lose a part of your self
To somebody you know
It takes a lot to let go
Every breath that you remember
Pictures fade away but memory is forever

An empty chair at all the tables
And I'll be seeing you when all my days boil down
But it's better where you're going anyway

I'm sorry
I heard about the bad news today
It's really hard to get through
Tough times and long days
But it really just depends on the season

For now we'll say goodbye
We know it's not the last time
I've lost the best part of my day
But it's better where you're going anyway

This is the last thing
I will remember
It's better where you're going anyway

The Leaving Song Pt.2 -AFI


Don't waste your touch, you won't feel anything
Or were you sent to save me?
I've thought too much, you won't find anything...
Worthy of redeeming

Yo he estado aqui muchas veces antes y regreso

To... break down, and cease all feeling
Burn now, what once was breathing
Reach out, and you may take my heart away

Imperfect cry, and scream in ecstasy
So what befalls the flawless?
Look what I've built, it shines so beautifully
Now watch as it destroys me

Y regreso aqui otra vez y comienzo

To... break down, and cease all feeling
Burn now, what once was breathing
Reach out, and you may take my heart away

Break down, and cease all feeling
Burn now, what once was breathing
Reach out, and you may take my heart away

I left it all behind, and never said goodbye
I left it all behind, and never said goodbye
I left it all behind, and never said goodbye
I left it all to die

I saw its birth, I watched it grow
I felt it change me
I took the life, I ate it slow
Now it consumes me

I... break down, and cease all feeling
Burn now, what once was breathing
Reach out, and you may take my heart away

Break down, and cease all feeling
Burn now, what once was breathing
Reach out, and you may take my heart away
... Heart away

Three Doors Down..Let Me Go

One more kiss could be the best thing
But one more lie could be the worst
And all these thoughts are never resting
And youíre not something I deserve

In my head thereís only you now
This world falls on me
In this world thereís real and make believe
And this seems real to me

You love me but you donít know who I am
Iím torn between this life I lead and where I stand
You love me but you donít know who I am
So let me go


This one almost always brings me to tears when I hear it...
Beloved wife --Natalie Merchant

You were the love
for certain of my life
you were simply my beloved wife
I donít know for certain
how Iíll live my life
now alone without my beloved wife
my beloved wife

I canít believe
Iíve lost the very best of me

you were the love
for certain of my life
you were simply my beloved wife
I donít know for certain
how Iíll live my life
now alone without my beloved wife
my beloved wife

I canít believe
Iíve lost the very best of me

you were the love
for certain of my life
for 50 years simply my beloved wife
with another love Iíll never lye again
itís you I canít deny
itís you I canít defy
a depth so deep
into my grief
without my beloved soul
I renounce my life
as my right
now alone without my beloved wife
my beloved wife

my beloved wife
my love is gone she suffered long
in hours of pain
my love is gone
now my suffering begins
my love is gone
would it be wrong if I should
surrender all the joy in my life
go with her tonight?

My love is gone she suffered long
in hours of pain
my love is gone
would it be wrong if I should
just turn my face away from the light
go with her tonight?

Avril Lavigne - Fall to Pieces
I look away
Then I look back at you
You try to say
The things that you can't undo
If I had my way
I'd never get over you
Today's the day
I pray that we make it through

Make it through the fall
Make it through it all

[Chorus:]
And I don't wanna fall to pieces
I just want to sit and stare at you
I don't want to talk about it
And I don't want a conversation
I just want to cry in front of you
I don't want to talk about it
Cuz I'm in Love With you

You're the only one,
I'd be with till the end
When I come undone
You bring me back again
Back under the star
Back into your arms

[Chorus]

Wanna know who you are
Wanna know where to start
I wanna know what this means

Wanna know how you feel
Wanna know what is real
I wanna know everything, everything

I'm in love with you
Cuz i'm in love with you
And I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you

[Chorus without last line]

[Chorus]

I'm in love with you,
Cuz I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you

Ok i'm double posting..... sorry.....
This is my new favorite band....

First day of my life - Bright Eyes

This is the first day of my life
I swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
They're spreading blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I donít know where I am
I donít know where Iíve been
But I know where I want to go

And so I thought Iíd let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you had just woke up
And you said ďthis is the first day of my life
Iím glad I didnít die before I met you
But now I donít care I could go anywhere with you
And Iíd probably be happyĒ

So if you want to be with me
With these things thereís no telling
We just have to wait and see
But Iíd rather be working for a paycheck
Then waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me

311 - Champagne

I will never understand you
when will I stop trying
I mean, cuz it's just not how I planned to
spend my time til' dying, I mean

Champagne
California on the brain
she's got an appetite for no refrains
just verses, she curses as blood vessels burst in defiance
she made an alliance to the dark side of Hollywood
where everything looks good
so I treat her as any other player would
lightly, then she wants to fight me
too bad, that's just too bad
I can't be around to pick up your bags and your debts
she wants to love me with threats
not taking chances, I'm hedging my bets
with other girls I'm not providing pearls
I'm free, free

I will never understand you
when will I stop trying
I mean, cuz it's just not how I planned to
spend my time til' dying
I mean

I know loving me isn't easy
I'm home and next thing I'm leaving
but when I look at you it's like praying with my eyes
I follow you to sleep so I will find
your dream place and hey, I'm not an angel
but girl you make me feel like I know one, one

Champagne
California on the brain
she's got an appetite for no refrains
just verses, she curses as blood vessels burst in defiance
she made an alliance to the dark side of Hollywood
where everything looks so good
so I treat her as any other sucker would
tightly, then she wants to fight me
too bad, that's just too bad
I can't be around to pick up your bags and your debts
she wants to love me with threats
I'm not taking chances, I'm hedging with my bets
with other girls I'm not providing pearls
I'm free, free

I'm looking over my dead dog Rover

A song i've been listening to last night/ this morning.... *I love her voice*

Drain the Blood - The Distillers
i'm living on shattered faith
the kind that likes to restrict your breathe
never been a better time than this
to suffacate on eternal bliss
in a city that swells with so much hate
you seem to rise above and take its place
the heart pumps until it dies
drain the blood the heart is wise

all my friends are murder
all my bones, no marrows in
all these fiends want teenage meat
all my friends are murderers

~away yeh~

i never met a pearl quite like you
who could shimmer and rot
the same time through
theres never been a better time than this
to bite the head off
the frost bitten emenence

all my friends are murder
all my bones, no marrows in
all these fiends want teenage meat
all my friends are murderers

ohhh o0h ohhh woahhh woaahhhhh

i'm alive in uterine
a star in the dark
a new day has dawned
open up and let it flow
i'll make it yours
so here we go

all my friends are murder
all my bones, no marrows in
all these fiends want teenage meat
all my friends are murderers

Watching the Detectives - Elvis Costello

Nice girls not one with a defect,
cellophane shrink-wrapped, so correct.
Red dogs under illegal legs.
She looks so good that he gets down and begs.
She is watching the detectives.
"ooh, he's so cute!"
She is watching the detectives
when they shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot.
They beat him up until the teardrops start,
but he can't be wounded 'cause he's got no heart.

Run--- Snow Patrol

Iíll sing it one last time for you
Then we really have to go
Youíve been the only thing thatís right
In all Iíve done

And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know weíll make it anywhere
Anyway from here

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
Iíll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And weíll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you canít raise your voice to say

To think I might not see those eyes
Makes it so hard not to cry
And as we say our long goodbye
I nearly do

Light up...

Slower slower
We donít have time for that
I just want to find an easier way
To get out of our little heads

Have heart my dear
Weíre bound to be afraid
Even if itís just for a few days
Making up for all this mess

This song has way too much meaning to me...

"Break Your Heart" - Barenaked Ladies

The bravest thing I've ever done
Was to run away and hide
But not this time, not this time
And the weakest thing I've ever done
Was to stay right by your side
Just like this time, and every time
I couldn't tell you I was happy when you were gone
So I lied and said that I missed you when we were apart
I couldn't tell you, so I had to lead you on
But I didn't mean to break your heart

And if I always seem distracted
Like my minds somewhere else
That's because it's true, yes it's true
it's this stupid pride that makes me feel
Like I have to follow through
Even half-assedly, loving you
Why must I always speak in terms of cowardice?
When I guess I should have just come out and told you right from the start
Why must I always tell you all I want is this?
I guess 'cause I didn't want to break your heart

And you said
What'd you think that I was gonna do,
Curl up and die just because of you?
I'm not that weak, you know
What'd you think that I was gonna do,
Try to make you love me as much as I love you?
How could you be so low?
You arrogant man,
What do you think that I am?
My heart will be fine
Just stop wasting my time

And now I know that you will be okay, and that I got what I want
and that's rid of you
Good bye
And it's not cause I'll be missing you
That makes me fall apart
It's just that I didn't mean to break
No I didn't mean to break
No I didn't mean to break
Your heart

Levon - Elton John

Levon wears his war wound like a crown
He calls his child Jesus
`Cause he likes the name
And he sends him to the finest school in town

Levon, Levon likes his money
He makes a lot they say
Spend his days counting
In a garage by the motorway

He was born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas day
When the New York Times said God is dead
And the war's begun
Alvin Tostig has a son today

And he shall be Levon
And he shall be a good man
And he shall be Levon
In tradition with the family plan
And he shall be Levon
And he shall be a good man
He shall be Levon

Levon sells cartoon balloons in town
His family business thrives
Jesus blows up balloons all day
Sits on the porch swing watching them fly

And Jesus, he wants to go to Venus
Leaving Levon far behind
Take a balloon and go sailing
While Levon, Levon slowly dies

Save Me - DMB
'You don't need to prove a thing to me. Just give me faith, make me believe'

Bleed- Cold
'Won't you let me take you
For a ride
You can stop the world
Try to change my mind
Won't you let me show you
How it feels
You can stop the world
But you won't change me'


The Night is Still Young - Billy Joel

I'm young enough to see the passionate boy that I used to be
But I'm old enough to say I got a good look at the other side
I know we got to work real hard, maybe even for the rest of our lives
But right now I just want to take what I can
Get tonight
While the night is still young
I want to keep making love to you
While the night is still young
I'd like to settle down
Get married
And maybe have a child someday
I can see a time coming when I'm gonna throw my suitcase out
No more separations
Where you have to say goodnight to a telephone
Baby I've decided that ain't what this life is all about
Oh
While the night is still young
While the night is still young
I want to try to make the world brand new
While the night is still young
Rock and Roll music was the only thing I
Ever gave a damn about
There was something that was missing
But I never used to wonder why
Now I know you're the one I need
To make things right again
And I may lose the battle
But you're giving me the will to try
Oh
While the night is still young
Because the night is still young
I've got a lot of catching up I've got to do
While the night is still young
While the night is still young
I want to try to make the world brand new
While the night is still young

At Last - Ella Fitzgerald

At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song
At last the skies above are blue
And my heart was wrapped up in clover
The night I looked at you
I found a dream that I can speak to
A dream that I could call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known
You smiled, and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
And you are mine at last

This is my song for the day:

Mad Season -Matchbox Twenty
I feel stupid - but I know it wonít last for long
Iíve been guessing - I coulda been guessiní wrong
You donít know me now
I kinda thought that you should somehow
Does that whole mad season got ya down

I feel stupid but itís something that comes and goes
Iíve been changiní - think itís funny how now one knows
We donít talk about - the little things that we do without
When that whole mad season comes around

So why ya gotta stand there
Looking like the answer now
It seems to me - youíd come around
I need you now
Do you think you can cope
You figured me out - Iím lost and Iím hopeless
Bleeding and broken - though Iíve never spoken
I come undone - in this mad season

I feel stupid - but I think I been catchiní on
I feel ugly - but I know I still turn you on
You seem colder now, torn apart, angry, turned around
Will that whole mad season knock you down

So are you gonna stand there
Are you gonna help me out
You need to be together now - I need you now
Do you think you can cope
You figured me out - Iím lost and Iím hopeless
Bleeding and broken - though Iíve never spoken
I come undone - in this mad season

Now Iím cryiní - isnít that what you want
Iím tryiní to live my life on my own
But I wonít
At times - I do believe I am strong
So someone tell me why, why, why
Do i, i, I feel stupid
And I came undone
And I came undone

I need you now
Do you think you can cope
You figured me out - Iím lost and Iím hopeless
Bleeding and broken - though Iíve never spoken

I need you now
Do you think you can cope
You figured me out - Iím a child and Iím hopeless
Bleeding and broken - though Iíve never spoken
I come undone - in this mad season

In this mad season
Thereís been a mad season
Been a mad season

Yeah, God forbid someone might read the lyrics to a song here, think, "Hey, that sounds like a song or a band I might like", and seek out some of their music. This is why I no longer buy CDs unless used. No offense, Speaker, you're doing what you have to, but the recording companies and their nasssty lawyerssess make me want to retch. They'd rather bully kids out of their life savings than address the failings of their business model and the implications of technology.

And I'm not saying for a moment that they ought not to be obeyed. Those are the site's rules. The site, sensibly, made that rule so that the media companies would not sue them. My point is that this behavior is shortsighted on the part of the copyright holders, not that I have any problem with the Fuselage covering it's backside. I'd do the same thing. I'm just venting.

Smell the sea and feel the sky

It's so good to see you now
It's been so long since we've been together
You kept in touch somehow
You always found a way to be there
I wish that I could stop the hands of time between us

All the days gone by
Do you remember when we were the best of friends
All the days gone by
You know that memories never fade as you're watchin' all your days go by

Lookin' back on younger years
That's what our hopes and dreams are made of
All the laughter and the tears
It's the feeling of love that makes us
I wish that I could stop the hands of time between us

All of the feelings that we had before
But through the years ooh those were the times

The memories we share
You can't erase them from your mind

Those were dasys gone by
You know that memories never fade
As you're watchin' all your days go by

"To Where You Are" - Josh Grobin

Who can say for certain
Maybe you're still here
I feel you all around me
Your memories so clear

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration
Can it be(?)
That you are mine
Forever love
And you are watching over me from up above

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile to know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dream
And isn't faith believing
All power can't be seen

As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me everyday
'Cause you are mine
Forever love
Watching me from up above

And I believe
That angels breathe
And that love will live on and never leave

Fly me up
To where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

I know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

Amazing - Aerosmith

I kept the right ones out
And let the wrong ones in
Had an angel of mercy
To see me through all my sins
There were times in my life
When I was goin' insane
Tryin' to walk through the pain

And when I lost my grip
And I hit the floor
Yeah, I tought I could leave
But couldn't get out the door
I was so sick n' tired
Of livin' a lie
I was wishing that I would die

(Chorus)
It's amazing
With the blink of an eye
You finally see the light
It's amazing
That when the moment arrives
You know you'll be alright
It's amazing
And I'm saying a prayer
To the desperate hearts tonight

That one last shot's a Permanent Vacation
And a how high can you fly with broken wings
Life's a journey - not a destination
And I just can't tell just what tomorrow brings

You have to learn to crawl
Before you learn to walk
But I just couldn't listen
To all that righteous talk
I was out on the street
Just tryin' to survive
Scratchin' to stay alive

(Chorus)

(To all of you people out there)
(Wherever you are - remember:)
(The light at the end of the tunnel)
(May be you - goodnight)

those copyright laws get me every time!

from Das So Schon Wie Du by Xavier Naidoo (the beginning english part)

'love is more than just a kiss,
will we take you to that step, will we do more than just connect,
and will you bring the thunder in my life and the fire in my eyes.
cause then there will be days of pleasure where everything far will be so near.
I have never felt thunder and lightning like this.
I have never been struck by a wonder like this. '

Ok! Here's a song I wrote & It's copyrighted in my name, so - no problem! I give myself permission to reprint it. ;D This is for my wife. :malelovies:


"The Sweetest Gift."


I was adrift on the sea.....I can't believe you chose to walk with me.
You took me just as I was...'cause that's the sort of thing an angel does.
I was a man filled with pain...but you washed across my heart like April rain.

Your love is sunshine & moonlight - and stars that twinkle in the misty night.
A breath of springtime in the morning dew.
You are the birdsongs & rainbows...the summer storm that makes the flowers grow...
and Darlin', I just have to say to you...The Sweetest gift God gave to me is you!

I don't know what you see in me...You taught me how to be all I can be.
I can't bring you silver or gold...but I can make this promice...yours to hold:
I pledge to stay by your side...forever is our love - two hearts intwined.

Your love is sunshine & moonlight - and stars that twinkle in the misty night.
A breath of springtime in the morning dew.
You are the birdsongs & rainbows...the summer storm that makes the flowers grow...
and let me say it one more time for you...the Sweetest Gift God gave to me is you!

how little we know about each other.

A boring life in a boring town

With that same old crowd
thats always been around.

Flower Tattoo
by:the W's

Do you wanna go for a walk
You can hold my hand
We can laugh & talk
You can lead the way
Which way you wanna go
Tell me all the things
I really really wanna know

CHORUS
Hair is gold & her eyes are blue
I'm in love with the girl with a flower tattoo
And if I wrote the perfect song
You know I'd name it after you.

T-Shirt sneakers some faded blue jeans
Pocket in the back ripped from the seams
Doesn't really care what she hears or sees
What they think about her
What they think about me

CHORUS

Do you wanna go for a walk
You can hold my hand
We can laugh & talk
You can lead the way
Which way you wanna go
Tell me all the things
I really really wanna know

Sleeping To Dream
by:Jason Mraz

I'm dreaming of sleeping next to you I'm feeling like a lost little boy in a brand new town
I'm counting my sheep and each one that passes is another dream to ashes
and they all fall down.

As I lay me down tonight,
I close my eyes and what a beautiful sight

I'm sleeping to dream about you
I'm so tired of having to live without you
So I'm sleeping to dream about you and I'm so tired

I found myself in the riches (Your eyes, your lips, your hair.) Well you were everywhere
But I woke up in the ditches. I hit the light and I thought you might be here
But you were nowhere. You were nowhere at home.

As I lay me back to sleep
Lord I pray that I can keep

Sleeping to dream about you
I'm so tired of having to live without you
So I'm sleeping to dream about you and I'm so tired

(It's just a little a lullaby to keep myself from crying myself to sleep at night.)

Sleeping to dream about you
I'm so tired of having to live without you
So I'm sleeping to dream about you and I'm so tired

Lebanese Blonde - Thievery Corporation* (sigh, love Thievery)

Too low to find my way
Too high to wonder why
I've touched this place before
Somewhere in another time
Now I can hear the sun
The clouds drifting through the blinds
A half a million thoughts
Are flowing through my mind

October - Evanescence (actually, anything by Evanescence)

I can't run anymore,
I fall before you,
Here I am,
I have nothing left,
Though I've tried to forget,
You're all that I am,
Take me home,
I'm through fighting it,
Broken,
Lifeless,
I give up,
You're my only strength,
Without you,
I can't go on,
Anymore,
Ever again.

They say freak
When you're singled out

Well, it filters through

So lay down
The threat is real
When his sight
Goes red again

He won't contain
Slip away
To clear your mind
When asked
What made it show
The truth
He can't send to most

Juicy by Biggie Smalls


It was all a dream, I used to read Word Up! magazine
Salt N Peppa and Heavy D up in the limousine
Hangin pictures on my wall
Every Saturday rap attack, Mr. Magic Marley Mall
I let my tape rock till my tape popped
Smokin weed and bamboo sippin on private stock
Way back when I had the red and black lumberjack
with the hat to match
remember rappin duke, duh ha duh ha
You never thought that hip hop would take it this far
Now I'm in the limelight cuz I rhyme tight
Time to get paid blow up like the World Trade
Born sinner the opposite of a winner
remember when I used to eat sardines for dinner
Peace to Ron G, Brucey B, Kid Capri
Funkmaster FLex, Lovebug Starsky
I'm blowin up like you thought I would
Call the crib same number same hood
It's all good
uh, and if you don't know, now you know n****

[Chorus]
You know very well who you are
don't let em hold you down reach for the stars
you had a goal but not that many
Cuz you're the only one, I'll give you good and plenty

I made the change from a common thief
To up close and personal with Robin Leech
And I'm far from cheap, I smoke skunk with my peeps all day
Spread love, it's the brooklyn way
The Moet and Alize keep my pissy
Girls used to diss me
Now they write letters cuz they miss me
I never thought it could happen, this rappin stuff
I was too used to packin gats and stuff
Now honey's play me close like butter play toast
From the mississippi down to the east coast
Condos in Queens, Indo for weeks
Sold out seats to hear Biggie Smalls speak
Livin life without fear, puttin 5 carats in my baby girl ear
Lunches, Brunches, interviews by the pool
Considered a fool, cuz I dropped out of high school
Stereotypes of a black male misunderstood
and it's still all good
uh, and if you don't know, now you know n****

[Chorus]

Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis
When I was dead broke man I couldn't picture this
50 inch screen money green leather sofa
Got two rides a limousine with a chaeffeur(sp?)
Phone bill about 2 G's flat
No need to worry my accountant handles that
And my whole crew is loungin
Celebratin everyday no more public housin
Thinkin back on my one room shack
Now my mom pimps a Ac with minks on her back
And she loves to show me off of course
Smiles everytime my face is up in the source
We used to fuss when the landlord dissed us
No heat wonderin why Christmas missed us
Birthdays was the worst days
Now we sip champagne when we thirstay
Your damn right I like the life I live,
cuz I went from negative to positive
and it's all... it's all good
uh, and if you don't know now you know n****

[Chorus]




This song is great, it's basically a modern day success story of someone going from rags to riches. He tells you about the things he has now, but not in a gloating kind of way that most rappers nowadays do. He's more using his success as a story he's telling you. That's one of the many things I admire about this song. Biggie also has a talent to pull off little things other rappers can't. like this here:

Now I'm in the limelight cuz I rhyme tight
Time to get paid blow up like the World Trade

He doesn't need complex rhymes that go on for many lines, he can just sit there and give you a dope line then switch up his flow and go a complete different direction on the next line. Only him, Tupac, Ice Cube, Nas and a few others can do that and pull it off well.

Wordplay
by:Jason Mraz

I've been all around the world
I've been a new sensation
But it doesn't really matter
In this generation
The sophomore slump is an uphill battle
And someone said that in my scene
'Cause they need a new song
Like a new religion
Music for the television
I can't do the long division
Someone do the math
For the record label puts me on the shelf up in the freezer
Got to find another way to live the life of leisure
So I drop my top
Mix and I mingle
Is everybody ready for the single and it goes...

(chorus)
Ha La La La La
Now listen closely to the verse I lay
(Ha La La La La)
It's all about the wordplay
(Ha La La La Love)
The wonderful thing it does
Because, because
I am the wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's
Yeah the Mister A-Z
They say I'm all about the wordplay

And it's time to get ill I got your remedy
For those who don't remember me
Well let me introduce you to my style
I try to keep a jumble
And the lyrics never mumble
When the music's makin' people tongue-tied
You want a new song
Like a new religion
Music for the television
I can't do the long division
Someone do the math

For the poeple write me off like I'm a one-hit wonder
Got to find another way to keep from goin' under
Pull out the stops
Got your attention
I guess it's time again for me to mention
The wordplay

(chorus)

I built a bridge across the stream of consciousness
It always seems to be a flowin'
But I don't which way my brain is goin'
Oh the ryhmin' and the timin'
Keeps the melodies inside me
And they're comin'
Til I'm running out of air
Are you prepared to take a dive into the deep end of my head
Are you listening to a single word I've said

Ha La La La La
Listen closely to the words I say
Ha La La La La
I'm sticken' to the wordplay
Ha La La La Love
The wonderful thing it does
Because, because
I am the wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's
Yeah the Mister A-Z
They say I'm all about the wordplay

Ha La La La La
I'm all about the wordplay
Ha La La La La
Stickin' with the wordplay
Ha La La La Love
I love the wonderful thing it does
Because, because
The ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's fall back in love
For the Mister A-Z they say
Is all about the wordplay

Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say

Open mind for a different view

Hold On
by:Good Charlotte

This world, this world is so cold
But you don't, you don't have to go
You're feeling sad you're feeling lonely
And no one seems to care
Your mother's gone and your father hits
You this pain you cannot bare
But we all bleed the same way as you do
We all have the same things to go through

Hold on... if you feel like letting go
Hold on... it gets better than you know

Your days you say they're way too long
And your nights you can't sleep at all
And you're not sure what you're looking for
But you don't want to no more
And you're not sure what you're waiting for but you don't want to no more
But we all bleed the same way as you do
We all have the same th ings to go through

Hold on... if you feel like letting go
Hold on... it gets better than you know

Don't stop looking you're one step closer
Don't stop searching it's not over...hold on
What are you looking for?
What are you waiting for?
Do you know what you're doing to me?
Go ahead...what are you waiting for?

Hold on... if you feel like letting go
Hold on... it gets better than you know
Don't stop looking you're one step closer
Don't stop searching it's not over...

Hold on... if you feel like letting go
Hold on... it gets better than you know
Hold on.....

Iím just out to find
The better part of me

Iím more than a bird...Iím more than a plane
More than some pretty face beside a train
Itís not easy to be me


FIVE FOR FIGHTING- 100 YEARS

I'm 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

I'm 22 for a moment
She feels better than ever
And we're on fire
Making our way back from Mars

FIVE FOR FIGHTING- SOMETHING ABOUT YOU

I donít know where to begin
I donít know how to get out there to see you
I donít know where to dig in.
I donít know how to get in there *to feel you

Itís been to long and Iím about to be in time for me
Itís been to long and Iím in time

Baby thereís something about you that
I can hold on to
Iím going to hold on to that
Baby thereís something about you that
I can hold on to
Iím going to hold on to that

BRYAN ADAMS- WHEN YOU LOVE SOMEONE :wub:

when you love someone - you'll do anything
you'll do all the crazy things that you can't explain
you'll shoot the moon - put out the sun
when you love someone

you'll deny the truth - believe a lie
there'll be times that you'll believe you can really fly
but your lonely nights - have just begun
when you love someone

when you love someone - you'll feel it deep inside
and nothing else can ever change your mind
when you want someone - when you need someone
when you love someone...

when you love someone - you'll sacrifice
you'd give it everything you got and you won't think twice
you'd risk it all - no matter what may come
when you love someone
you'll shoot the moon - put out the sun
when you love someone


BRYAN ADAMS- (EVERYTHING I DO) I DO IT FOR YOU *All-time fav. love song!! :mushy:

Look into my eyes - you will see
What you mean to me
Search your heart - search your soul
And when you find me there you'll search no more
Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
You can't tell me it's not worth dyin' for
You know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

Look into my heart - you will find
There's nothin' there to hide
Take me as I am - take my life
I would give it all I would sacrifice
Don't tell me it's not worth fightin' for
I can't help it there's nothin' I want more
Ya know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

There's no love - like your love
And no other - could give more love
There's nowhere - unless you're there
All the time - all the way

Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
I can't help it there's nothin' I want more
I would fight for you - I'd lie for you
Walk the wire for you - Ya I'd die for you

Ya know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

Solsbury Hill - Peter Gabriel (I love the whole song but this is my favourite verse from it)

When illusion spin her net
I'm never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No one taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don't need a replacement
I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart going boom boom boom
Hey, I said, you can keep my things they've come to take me home
