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

It's by the Wreckers

Stand Still, Look Pretty

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

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>

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

Even if it Kills Me- Motion City Soundtrack

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

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...

I so want to get back on track

And I'll do whatever it takes

Even if it kills me...

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...
