I really like this song. I think a lot of us can relate to the lyrics.

It's by the Wreckers

[u]Stand Still, Look Pretty[/u]

I want to paint my face
And pretend that I am someone else
Sometimes I get so fed up
I don't even want to look at myself

But people have problems that are worse than mine
I don't want you to think I'm complaining all the time
And I hate the way you look at me I have to say
I wish I could start over

[Chorus]
I am slowly falling apart
I wish you'd take a walk in my shoes for a start
You might think it's easy being me
You just stand still, look pretty

Sometimes I find myself shaking
In the middle of the night
And then it hits me and I can't
Even believe this is my life

But people have problems that are worse than mine
I don't want you to think I'm complaining all the time
And I wish that everyone would go and shut their mouths
I'm not strong enough to deal with it

Ask Me - Amy Grant

I see her as a little girl hiding in her room
She takes another bath and she sprays her momma's perfume
To try to wipe away the scent he left behind
But it haunts her mind.

You see she's his little rag, nothing more than just a waif
And he's mopping up his need, she is tired and afraid
Maybe she'll find a way through these awful years to disappear.

Ask me if I think there's a God up in the heaven
Where did He go in the middle of her shame?
Ask me if I think there's a God up in the heavens
I see no mercy and no one down here's naming names
Nobody's naming names.

Now she's looking in the mirror at a lovely woman face
No more frightened little girl, like she's gone without a trace
Still she leaves the light burning in the hall
It's hard to sleep at all.

Still she crawls up in her bed acting quiet as a mouse
Deep inside she's listening for a creaking in the house
But noone's left to harm her, she's finally safe and sound
There's a peace she's found.

Ask her how she knows there's a God up in the heaven
Where did He go in the middle of her shame?
Ask her how she knows there's a God up in the heavens
She said His mercy is bringing her life again.

Ask me how I know there's a God up in the heaven
(How do you know?)
Where did He go in the middle of her shame
(Where did He go?)
Ask me how I know there's a God up in the heavens
(How do you know?)
She said his mercy is bringing her life again
She's coming to life again.

He's in the middle of her pain
In the middle of her shame
Mercy brings life
He's in the middle
Mercy in the middle.

So ask me how I know
Ask me how I know, yeah
Ask me how I know there's a God up in the heaven
(How do you know?)
Ask me how I know there's a God up in the heavens
(How do you know?)
Yeah, ask me how I know
(How do you know?)
Ask me
Ask me
Ask me how I know
(How do you know?)
There's a God up in the heavens
Ask me how I know there's a God up in the heavens.

boys 2 men does a great song called I will get there that i really love


Ohohah
Hey
Yeah
I've been wanderin' 'round in the dark
Been lost somewhere where no light could shine on my heart
I have known a pain so deep
But I know my faith will free me
[Get there] And I'll get through this
[Get there] I'll find my way again
So don't tell me that it's over
'Cause each step just gets me closer
(I will get there) I will get there
(I will get there) I will get there somehow
Cross that river (Cross that river)
Nothing's stoppin' me now
I will get through the night (Oh, yes, I will)
And make it through to the other side
(Get there) Get there
(Get there) Get there
I've been in these chains for so long
I'll break free and I'll be there where I belong
Hold my head up high, I'll stand tall
And I swear this time I won't fall
[Get there] I will do this
[Get there] No matter what it takes
'Cause I know no limitations
And I'll reach my destination, I will get there
I will get there (I will get there)
I will get there (Ooh) somehow (Somehow)
Cross that river (Cross that river)
Nothing's stoppin' me now
I will get through the night
And make it through to the other side
(Ooh, get there) Get there
(Get there) Get there
Well, the night is cold and dark
But somewhere the sun is shining
And I'll feel it shine on me
I'll keep on tryin', I'll keep on tryin'
I will get there (I will get there)
I will get there somehow
Cross that river (Cross that river)
Nothing's stoppin' me now
I will get through the night
And make it through to the other side
Get there, get there
I will get there (I will get there)
I will get there somehow (Somehow)
Cross that river (I'll cross that river for you)
Nothing's stoppin' me now (OhwhoaI)
I will get through (Through) the night
And make it through to the other side (Ohhoohho)
(Get there) Get there
(Ooh, get there) Get there (Whoaoh)
I will get there (I will get there)
I will get there somehow (Somehow)
Cross that river (I'll cross it for your love)
Nothing's stoppin' me now (No matter what)
I will get through the night (I will get through the night)
And make it through to the other side
(Get there) Get there
(Ooh, get there) Get there
Get there
Ohhooh
I'll get there

Oddly enough, ...And We All Have A Hell by From First To Last.

Every day gets worse,
Locked in a vice my thoughts perverse
You must wonder why I look at you that way (that way)
Tonight I'll make my way into your house
I must; I'm lusting for your body
Skin looks tight, think I just might have
To take a bite, but I know one will turn
To three or four or more my little whore

Tonight, tonight she's not alone
(can you taste the wicked in the room?)
Bobbysoxer, so pure, so young
By morning her soul will be gone, gone.

I did a beautiful thing,
Relax baby, that's a good girl
You're like my work of art
I can control, I can contort any
Position that I wish,
I make my fantasy reality
Hold still, it will be over soon

Tonight, tonight she's not alone
(can you taste the wicked in the room?)
Bobbysoxer, so pure, so young
By morning her soul will be gone, gone, gone, gone.

I blend with the walls so I won't be seen
My love, you smell so..
I took one good look,
I followed you home

Tonight, tonight she's not alone
(can you taste the wicked in the room?)
Bobbysoxer, so pure, so young
By morning her soul will be gone

[quote name='Laney' date='14 November 2002 - 10:13 AM' timestamp='1037290437' post='17166']
As anyone who chats with me knows....My name is Laney (hi Laney) and I'm a Staind addict...<p><p>Outside<p>
And you
Bring me to my knees
Again
All the times
That I could beg you please
In vain
All the times
That I felt insecure
For you
But I leave
My burdens at the door<p>But I'm on the outside
And I'm looking in
I can see through you
I can see your true colors
'Cause inside your ugly
Your ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you<p>All the times
That I felt like this won't end
Was for you
And I taste
What I could never have
It's from you
All the times
That I've tried
My intentions
Full of pride
But I waste
More time than anyone<p>But I'm on the outside
And I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
'Cause inside your ugly
Your ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you<p>All the times
That I've cried
All this wasted
It's all inside
And I feel
All this pain
Stuffed it down
It's back again
And I lie
Here in bed
All alone
I can't mend
But I feel
Tomorrow will be OK<p>But I'm on the outside
And I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
'Cause inside your ugly
Your ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you<p>
And this is better when Staind sings it, but it's by Pearl Jam<p>
Black<p>
Hey...oooh...
Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay
Were laid spread out before me as her body once did
All five horizons revolved around her soul
As the earth to the sun
Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn
Ooh, and all I taught her was everything
Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore
And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds
Of what was everything?
Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...<p>I take a walk outside
I'm surrounded by some kids at play
I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear
Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head
I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning
How quick the sun can, drop away
And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass
Of what was everything
All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...
All the love gone bad turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I'll be...yeah...<p>Uh huh...uh huh...ooh...
I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star
In somebody else's sky, but why
Why, why can't it be, why can't it be mine<p>

[font="Arial"]A Better Son/Daughter by Rilo Kiley

Sometimes in the morning I am petrified and can't move
Awake but cannot open my eyes
And the weight is crushing down on my lungs
I know I can't breathe
And hope someone will save me this time
And your mother's still callin you insane and high
Swearin it's different this time
And you tell her to give in to the demons that possess her
That god never blessed her insides
Then you hang up the phone and feel badly for upsetting things
Crawl back into bed to dream of a time
When your heart was open wide and you love things just because
Like the sick and dying

And sometimes when you're on
You're really fuckin on
And your friends they sing along
And they love you
But the lows are so extreme
That the good seems fuckin cheap
And it teases you for weeks in its absence
But you'll fight and you'll make it through
You'll fake it if you have to
And you'll show up for work with a smile
You'll be better
And You'll be smarter
And More grown up and a better daughter or son
And a real good friend
And you'll be awake
You'll be alert
You'll be positive though it hurts
And you'll laugh and embrace all your friends
And you'll be a real good listener
You'll be honest
You'll be brave
You'll be handsome and you'll be beautiful
You'll be happy

Your ship may be comin in
You're weak but not givin in
To the cries and the wails of the valley below
And your ship may be comin in
You're weak but not givin in
And you'll fight it you'll go out fightin all of em[/font]

[u]Even if it Kills Me- Motion City Soundtrack [/u]

I've got a lot of things to do tonight
I'm so sick of making lists of things I'll never finish
I've lived here for the last twelve years
Since early 1995 all my shit has been in boxes
But if I had a little more time to kill
I'd settle every little stupid thing,
Yeah, you'd think that I would

But I'm too tired to go to sleep tonight
And I'm too weak to follow dreams tonight
For the first time in a long time I can say that I want to try
To get better and overcome each moment
In my own way...

I wonder if I'll ever lose my mind
I tried hard for a while but then I kind of gave up
Winter is a killer when the sun goes down
"I'm really not as stubborn as I seem"
Said the knuckle to the concrete

But I'm too tired to go to sleep tonight
And I'm too weak to follow dreams tonight
For the first time in a long time I can say that I want to try
To get better and overcome each moment
In my own way...

I'm not saying that I've given up
I'm just trying not to think as much I used to
'Cause never is lonely little messed up word
Maybe I'll get it right someday

[b]For the first time in a long time
I can say that I want to try
I feel helpless for the most part, but I'm learning to open my eyes
And the sad truth of the matter is I'll never get over it,
But I'm gonna try
To get better and overcome each moment
In my own way...[/b]

I so want to get back on track
And I'll do whatever it takes
Even if it kills me...
[font="Tahoma"][/font]

Jessie J

Who You Are:

I stare at my reflection in the mirror

Why am I doing this to myself?

Losing my mind on a tiny error

I nearly left the real me on the shelf

No, no, no, no, no

Don't lose it all in the blur of the stars

Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing

It's okay not to be okay

Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart

Tears don't mean you're losing

Everybody's bruising

Just be true to who you are

Who you are, who you are, who you are

Who you are, who you are, who you are

Who you are, who you are, who you are

Brushing my hair, do I look perfect?

I forgot what to do to fit the mold, yeah

The more I try the less it's working, yeah, yeah, yeah

'Cause everything inside me screams

No, no, no, no, no

(From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/j/jessie-j-lyrics/who-you-are-lyrics.html)

Don't lose it all in the blur of the stars

Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing

It's okay not to be okay

Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart

But tears don't mean you're losing

Everybody's bruising

There's nothing wrong with who you are

Yes, no's, egos, fake shows like boom

Just go and leave me alone

Real talk, real life, good luck, good night

With a smile, that's my home, that's my home, no

No, no, no, no, no

Don't lose it all in the blur of the stars

Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing

It's okay not to be okay

Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart

Tears don't mean you're losing

Everybody's bruising

Just be true to who you are

Yeah, yeah, yeah

I think this has been posted before, but I just love it and it has a very special place in my heart.

"When It Don't Come Easy" by Patty Griffin

Red lights are flashing on the highway

I wonder if we're gonna ever get home

I wonder if we're gonna ever get home tonight

Everywhere the waters getting rough

Your best intentions may not be enough

I wonder if we're gonna ever get home tonight

But if you break down

I'll drive out and find you

If you forget my love

I'll try to remind you

And stay by you when it don't come easy

I don't know nothing except change will come

Year after year what we do is undone

Time keeps moving from a crawl to a run

I wonder if we're gonna ever get home

You're out there walking down a highway

And all of the signs got blown away

Sometimes you wonder if you're walking in the wrong direction

But if you break down

I'll drive out and find you

If you forget my love

I'll try to remind you

And stay by you when it don't come easy

So many things that I had before

That don't matter to me now

Tonight I cry for the love that I've lost

And the love I've never found

When the last bird falls

And the last siren sounds

Someone will say what's been said before

Some love we were looking for

But if you break down

I'll drive out and find you

If you forget my love

I'll try to remind you

And stay by you when it don't come easy

Carry On - Ben's Brother

When you're lost, and you're lonely

And your only way is up

When your day rises from you

Like a mountain to its top

Look beside you, and you will find me

I will guide you, when your will is gone

So carry on, carry on, carry on

What ever comes, and however painful, however long

When your hope has been denied you

I will walk beside you, carry on

All my life has been a battle

Fought within me with myself

You always know what the truth is

But the trick is to know yourself

I looked around me in the darkness

And you found me when there was no one else

So carry on, carry on, carry on

Whatever comes, and however painful, however long

When your hope has been denied you

I will walk beside you, carry on

Let me count the ways that I love you

Let me count the days that we have known

Show me a place to be with you

Cos I can't do this on my own, on my own

So carry on, carry on, carry on

What ever comes, and however painful, however long

When your hope has been denied you

I will walk beside you, carry on

So carry on, carry on, carry on

Whatever comes, and however painful, however long

When your hope has been denied you

I will walk beside you, carry on

When your hope has been denied you

I will walk beside you, carry on

He heals the broken Hearted

He binds their wounds

He is L O V E

He finds those forgotten

Those who have been abused

He is L O V E

He knows your name

A FATHER to the FATHERLESS

A healer of the brokeness

You make beauty from the ashes

A helper to the helpless

A fighter for the hopeless

You L O V E those who are alone

Those who are alone

He comforts the lonely

He hears their cry

He is L O V E

He holds the children

Through out the night

He is L O V E

He knows your name

Gives us your Heart Lord

Help us love the unseen

And give us your Eyes Lord

Help us love those in need

You make beauty from the ashes

He knows your name <3

LDLHA-IBCSYWA by TWIZTID

[Madrox:]

They tend to misunderstand the paper man

With scissor hands who watches the hourglass for grains of sand

To fall and fall again as he pretends

That everything he lays his hands on doesn't turn to shreds

But why oh why does he persist to hide

When they insist he try to come outside

From the shell he lives inside

Now has been hypnotized and

Despite the lies he sits and waits to die

'Cause he can't find the words to explain the rain

All these emotions are transformed and now become pain

He's alive in a black hole empty in space

And he sits in front of the mirror and he's face to face

With the sadness, confusion his patience he's losing

He's substance abusing he's one with the music

And he needs a little something to dial it all back

'Cause he's running in a race but he's not on track

[Hook:]

Love don't live here anymore, it's been cold since you went away

Now I've been trying to get myself together, is there something I can say that'll make you stay

Love don't live here anymore, it's been cold since you went away

I've been trying to get my head together, but things just don't seem to go my way

[Monoxide:]

All is see when I'm looking at you is me

And everyday gets a little bit harder

Like a piece of my life's puzzle has been slipped under the carpet

And until this day I'm feeling like I'm never gonna find it

I smoke a cigarette and hope for the best

But sometimes that cigarette is just smoke in the chest and I lay in bed

But it's nothing to do with getting rest instead I use it as an escape from all the mess

Nothing seems to matter I'm only getting sadder n sadder

'Cause I'm not even sure what I'm after

I know my life's a disaster and I better straighten it out

And stand tall or fall a victim of getting caught in

A spiraling downfall of emotion that I call

Devotion and destruction of everything and it's my fault

I'm hoping to try more let's open up my door

And let em know that I'm bringing me back like encore

[Hook:]

Love don't live here anymore, it's been cold since you went away

Now I've been trying to get myself together, is there something I can say that'll make you stay

Love don't live here anymore, it's been cold since you went away

I've been trying to get my head together, but things just don't seem to go my way

[Monoxide:]

I'm an example of a bad example and as ample as it may seem

A sample of this poisonous apple maybe rattle a daydream

But I'm giving you reality checks and if you get it then it's properly spent

If you can't handle it yet gimme a sec

I'll make ya proud of me instead of surrounding me

Totally hounding me expecting me to be like all the rest

And I gotta be honest I'm not sure who the fuck I am on a constant basis

So many faceless faces that are faced with

"Who the fuck am I? " What a shame it's

Not so much the lies I'm just lost in my mind

Trying to find what it is that makes me feel right inside

And I'm submerged by the urge to make it my day and night

I'm in the struggle looking to fight for the right

To be more than just alright...

And I'm looking for more light so I can see what they got in store for my life

[Hook:]

Love don't live here anymore, it's been cold since you went away

Now I've been trying to get myself together, is there something I can say that'll make you stay

Love don't live here anymore, it's been cold since you went away

I've been trying to get my head together, but things just don't seem to go my way

Ohhhooohhhooohhh

Love can be so cold...

This song describes me to a T.

This song, it may sound silly, but it is such a good song that i'll sing at the top of my lungs and feel so much better:

Frozen - Idina Menzel

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight,
not a footprint to be seen.
A kingdom of isolation and it looks like I'm the queen.
The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside.
Couldn't keep it in, Heaven knows I tried.
Don't let them in, don't let them see.
Be the good girl you always have to be.
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know.
Well, now they know!

Let it go, let it go!
Can't hold it back any more.
Let it go, let it go!
Turn away and slam the door.
I don't care what they're going to say.
Let the storm rage on.
The cold never bothered me anyway.

It's funny how some distance,
makes everything seem small.
And the fears that once controlled me, can't get to me at all
It's time to see what I can do,
to test the limits and break through.
No right, no wrong, no rules for me.
I'm free!

Let it go, let it go.
I am one with the wind and sky.
Let it go, let it go.
You'll never see me cry.
Here I'll stand, and here I'll stay.
Let the storm rage on.

My power flurries through the air into the ground.
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I'm never going back; the past is in the past!

Let it go, let it go.
And I'll rise like the break of dawn.
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone
Here I stand, in the light of day.

Let the storm rage on!
The cold never bothered me anyway...
