Ohhh my new top song at the moment, I cry everytime I hear it...

by Amanda Marshall

Let It Rain

I have given, I have given

And got none

Still I'm driven by something I can't explain

It's not a cross, it is a choice

I cannot help but hear his voice

I only wish that I could listen without shame

Chorus

Let it rain

Let it rain on me

Let it rain, oh let it rain

Let it rain on me

I have been a witness to the perfect crime

I wipe the grin off of my face to hide the blame

It isn't worth the tears you cry to have a perfect alibi

Now I'm beaten at the hands of my own game

Chorus

It isn't easy to be kind

With all these demons in my mind

I only hope one day I'll be free

I do my best not to complain

My face is dirty from the strain

I only hope one day I'll come clean

Chorus

Come take my hand

We can walk to the light

And without fear

We can see through the darkest night

But more for the venting healing:

                Daddy I'm Fine

Poe- Haunted

sometimes i can just survive the day on two lines from 'black dove'

you're not a helicopter

you're not a cop out either honey...

...i guess you go too far when pianos try to be guitars'...

..'somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true'...

..'you know if i leave you now, it doesnt mean that i love you any less. its just the state i'm in, i cant be good to anyone else like this'...

...' sunday is gloomy, my hours are slumberless. dearest the shadows i live with are numberless'...

...'cant stop whats coming cant stop what is on its way'...

...'i have a hiding place when spring marches in will you keep watch for me i hear them calling'...

...'and if there is a way to find you i will find you but will you find me'....

...'at least when you cry now he cant even hear you'...

...'he says he reckons that im a watercolour stain he says i run and then i run from him and then i run'...

....'and this little masochist shes ready to confess'...

...'im crying everyones tears and there inside our private war i died the night before and all these remnants of joy and disaster what am i supposed to do?'...

...'had i not the strength and wisdom of a warrior i would have to give up but im thankful that im strong as i am and ill try to do the best i can'...

...'it took all the strength i had not to fall apart, kept trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart. and i spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself, i used to cry but now i hold my head up high and you see me somebody new'...

A song by Staind

"Fade"

I try to breathe

Memories overtaking me

I try to face them but

The thought is too much to conceive

I only know that I can change

Everything else just stays the same

So now I step out of the darkness

that my life became 'cause

I just needed someone to talk to

You were just to busy with yourself

You were never there for me

To express how I felt

I just stuffed it down

Now I'm older and I feel like

I could let some of this anger fade

But it seems the surface I am scratching

Is the bed that I have made

So where were you?

When all this I was going through

You never took the time

To ask me just what you could do

I only know that I can change

Everything else just stays the same

So now I step out of the darkness

that my life became 'cause

I just needed someone to talk to

You were just to busy with yourself

You were never there for me

To express how I felt

I just stuffed it down

Now I'm older and I feel like

I could let some of this anger fade

But it seems the surface I am scratching

Is the bed that I have made

I never meant to fade...

Away

I NEVER MEANT TO FADE

I just needed someone to talk to

You were just to busy with yourself

You were never there for me

To express how I felt

I just stuffed it down

Now I'm older and I feel like

I could let some of this anger fade

But it seems the surface I am scratching

Is the bed that I have made

I try to breathe...

This song may seem a little corny, but I like it.

Independence Day (Martina McBride)

She seemed all right by dawn's early light

though she looked a little worried and weak

she tried to pretend he wasn't drinking again

but daddy left the proof on her cheek

I was only eight years old that summer

and I only seemed to be in the way

so I took myself down to the fair in town

on independence day

word gets around in a small small town

they said he was a dangerous man

but momma was proud and she stood her ground

though she knew she was on the losing end

some folks whispered and some folks talked

but everybody looked the other way

when time ran out there was no one about

on independence day

let freedom ring

let the white dove sing

let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning

let the weak be strong

let the right be wrong

roll the stone away let the guilty pay it's independence day

she lit up the sky like fourth of july

by the time that the firemen come

they put out the flames and they took down some names

and sent me to the county home

now I'm not saying it's right or it's wrong

but maybe it's the only way

talk about your revolutions

it's independence day

let freedom ring

let the white dove sing

let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning

let the weak be strong

let the right be wrong

roll the stone away LET THE GUILTY PAY

it's independence day

I also love Janie's Got a Gun, but I don't know all the words, so I'll spare you :)

Here is one I always listen to, and it makes me feel good.

Superman

By Five for Fighting

Verse 1

I can't stand to fly.

I'm not that naive.

I'm just out to find

the better part of me.

I'm more than a bird,

I'm more than a plane,

I'm more than some

pretty face beside a train.

And it's not easy to be me.

I wish I could cry

fall upon my knees.

Find a way to lie

about a home I'll never see.

It may sound absurd,

but don't be naive

even heroes have a right to bleed.

I may be disturbed,

but won't you concede?

even heroes have the right to dream.

and it's not easy to be me.

Up, up, up and away. . .

away from me.

But it's alright.

You can all sleep sound tonight.

I'm not crazy, or anything.

I can't stand to fly.

I'm not that naive.

Men weren't meant to ride

with clouds between their knees.

I'm only a man,

in a silly red sheet

digging for kryptonite on this one way street.

I'm only a man,

in a funny red sheet,

looking for special things inside of me.

inside of me. . .inside of me.

inside of me. ..inside of me.

I'm only a man

in a funny red sheet.

Only a man

looking for a dream.

I'm only a man

in a funny red sheet.

and it's not easy. ..

it's not easy to be me.

How did I miss this post???  I could go on and on with what songs I listen to over and over again, but here are a few...

Runaway Train by Soul Asylum

Call you up in the middle of the night

Like a firefly without a light

You were there like a blowtorch burning

I was a key that could use a little turning

So tired that I couldn't even sleep

So many secrets I couldn't keep

I promised myself I wouldn't weep

One more promise I couldn't keep

It seems no one can help me now,

I'm in too deep, there's no way out

This time I have really led myself astray

Runaway train, never going back

Wrong way on a one-way track

Seems like I should be getting somewhere

Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Can you help me remember how to smile?

Make it somehow all seem worthwhile

How on earth did I get so jaded?

Life's mystery seems so faded

I can go where no one else can go

I know what no one else knows

Here I am just a-drownin' in the rain

With a ticket for a runaway train

And everything seems cut and dried,

Day and night, earth and sky,

Somehow I just don't believe it

Runaway train, never going back

Wrong way on a one-way track

Seems like I should be getting somewhere

Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Bought a ticket for a runaway train

Like a madman laughing at the rain

A little out of touch, a little insane

It's just easier than dealing with the pain

Runaway train, never going back

Wrong way on a one-way track

Seems like I should be getting somewhere

Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Runaway train, never coming back

Runaway train, tearing up the track

Runaway train, burning in my veins

I run away but it always seems the same

_________________________________________________________

I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor

At first I was afraid I was petrified

Kept thinkin' I could never live without you by my side;

But then I spent so many nights

Thinkin' how you did me wrong

And I grew strong

And so you're back from outer space

I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face

I should have changed that stupid lock

I should have made you leave your key

If I'd've known for just one second you'd back to bother me

Go on now, go walk out the door

Just turn around now

('cause) you're not welcome anymore

Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye

Did I crumble

Did you think I'd lay down and die?

Oh no, not.I. I will survive

Oh as long as I know how to love I know I'll stay alive;

I've got all my life to live,

I've got all my love to give and I'll survive,

I will survive. Hey hey.

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart

Kept trying' hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart,

And I spent oh so many nights

Just feeling sorry for myself. I used to cry

But now I hold my head up high

And you see me somebody new

I'm not that chained up little person still in love with you,

And so you feel like droppin' in

And just expect me to be free,

Now I'm savin' all my lovin' for someone who's lovin' me

Go on now.. etc.

_________________________________________________________

You could never know what it's like

Your blood like winter freezes just like ice

And there's a cold lonely light that shines from you

You'll wind up like the wreck you hide behind that mask you use

And did you think this fool could never win

Well look at me, I'm coming back again

I got a taste of love in a simple way

And if you need to know while I'm still standing you just fade away

Don't you know I'm still standing better than I ever did

Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid

I'm still standing after all this time

Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah

I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah

Once I never could hope to win

You starting down the road leaving me again

The threats you made were meant to cut me down

And if our love was just a circus you'd be a clown by now

____________________________________________________________

Crawling by Linkin Park

Crawling in my skin

These wounds they will not heal

Fear is how I fall

Confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface

Comsuming, confusing

This lack of self-control I fear is never-ending

Controlling, I can't seem...

To find myself again

My walls are closing in

I've felt this way before

So insecure...

Crawling in my skin

These wounds they will not heal

Fear is how I fall

Confusing what is real

Discomfort endlessly has pulled itself upon me

Distructing, reacting

Against my will I stand beside my own reflection

It's haunting, how I can't seem...

To find myself again

My walls are closing in

I've felt this way before

So insecure...

Crawling in my skin

These wounds they will not heal

Fear is how I fall

Confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface

Comsuming...

This lack of self-control I fear is never-ending

Controlling...

Confusing what is real

_________________________________________________________

I could go on and on, but I'll stop there.  I have to agree wtih the other choices people wrote!! I love the songs Luka and Fade, great music!

"Can't Cry Hard Enough" (Williams Brothers)

I'm gonna live my life

Like every day's the last

Without a simple goodbye

It all goes by so fast

And now that you're gone

I can't cry hard enough

No I can't cry hard enough

For you to hear me now

Can I open my eyes

And see you for the first time

I've let go of you like

A child letting go of his kite

There it goes

Up in the sky

There it goes

Beyond the clouds

For no reason why

I can't cry hard enough

No I can't cry hard enough

For you to hear me now

Can I look back in vain

And see you standing there

With all that remains

It's just an empty chair

And now that you're gone

I can't cry hard enough

No I can't cry hard enough

For you to hear me now

There it goes

Up in the sky

There it goes

Beyond the clouds

For no reason why

I can't cry hard enough

No I can't cry hard enough

For you to hear me now

STAY GOLD BY STEVIE WONDER THEME TO "THE OUTSIDER'S"

Seize upon the moment long ago

One breath away and there you will be

So young and carefree

Again you will see

That place in time.

So gold.

Still away into that way back when

You thought that all would last forever,

But like the weather

Nothing can ever

And be in time

Stay gold.

But can it be when we can see

So vividly a memory

And yet you say so much a day

To fade away and leave a ray of sun

So Gold

Life is but a twinkling love and light

Yet filled with sorrow and compassion

Though not imagined

All things that happened

Will age to old

Though gold

Gold, gold

Though Gold!

I truly LOVE this song...

Hangin' By a Thread (Jann Arden)  

When I cry, I close my eyes

And every tear falls down inside

And I pray with all my might

that I will find my heart in someone's arms

When I cry, cry

When I cry

When I am sad I think of every awful thing I ever did

Oh When I cry, there is no love,

No there is nothing that can comfort me enough

When I cry

Cry, cry

The salt inside my body ruins everyone I come close to

My hands are barely holding up my head

I am so tired of looking at my feet

Or all the secrets that I keep

My heart is barely hangin' by a thread

Hangin' by a thread

Oh look at me

At all I've done

I've lost so many things that I so dearly love

I lost my soul

I lost my pride

Oh I lost any hope of having a sweet life

So I cry,

Cry, cry

Oh the salt inside my body ruins everyone I come close to

My hands are barely holding up my head

Oh I'm so tired of looking at my feet

And all the secrets that I keep

My heart is barely hangin' by a thread

Hangin' by a thread

I miss you all

I wish I was with you now

I wish I was

I just ran across this song on a cd ive had for quite a while and can't believe id never really listened to it before. talk about something thats inspirational!!

From The Ashes

Martina McBride

My right hand holds matches,

my left holds my past,

I hope the wind catches,

and burns it down fast,

I'm gonna step into the fire,

with my failures and my shame,

and wave good-bye to yesterday,

as I dance among the flames,

so don't try to save me now,

let the walls of my world all burn down,

just stand back and wait till the smoke finally passes,

and I will rise,

from the ashes,

from the ashes,

from the ashes,

for all that i'm loosing, much more will i gain,

the hard part is choosing,

to change what needs changed.

my step will be much lighter,

with these deamons off my chest,

I'm born a better spirit,

and lay the old to rest

so don't try to save me now,

let the walls of my world all burn down,

just stand back and wait till the smoke finally passes,

and i will rise

from the ashes,

from the ashes,

from the ashes,

and i'll walk away stonger,

I will be flyin,

higher and truer

then ive flown before,

my right hand holds matches,

my left holds my past,

i hope the wind catches,

and burns it down

fast.

its from her emotions cd. hope maybe this will help someone like its helped me lately.

I've never had the patience to read through all of these so if either of these are repeats, please forgive me. The song "Invincible" by Pat Benetar is my theme song. lol, it is just so my song. but having to deal with this I think the song "All Fired Up" is the one that makes me feel the best when I sit down and listen to it. A quote from it is my signiture. Pat Benetar SO r0xx0rs. lol (me being 16, stupid words like "r0xx0rs" just come out sometimes)

Okay i love The line "And Ill run naked through the street without my mask on!"  (I Love Tori.)

And a song that made me realise I wasnt alone

Behind The Wall

Tracey Chapman

Last night I heard the screaming

Loud voices behind the wall

Another sleepless night for me

It won't do no good to call

The police

Always come late

If they come at all

Last night I heard the screaming

Loud voices behind the wall

Another sleepless night for me

It won't do no good to call

The police

Always come late

If they come at all

And when they arrive

They say they can't interfere

With domestic affairs

Between a man and his wife

And as they walk out the door

The tears well up in her eyes

Last night I heard the screaming

Then a silence that chilled my soul

I prayed that I was dreaming

When I saw the ambulance in the road

And the policeman said

"I'm here to keep the peace

Will the crowd disperse

I think we all could use some sleep"

Last night I heard the screaming

Loud voices behind the wall

Another sleepless night for me

It won't do no good to call

The police

Always come late

If they come at all

And a happier one by Robbie which makes me think of my pandys family:

Eternity

Close your eyes so you dont feel them

They dont need to see you cry

I cant promise I will heal you

But if you want to I will try

To sing this summer serenade

The past is done we've been betrayed its true

Some might say the truth will out

But I believe without a doubt in you

You were there for summer dreaming

And you gave me what I need

And I hope you find your freedom

For eternity

Yesterday when we were walking

You talked about your ma and dad

What they did that made you happy

What they did that made you sad

We sat and watched the sun go down

Then picked a star before we lost the moon

Youth is wasted on the young

Before you know its come and gone too soon

You were there for summer dreaming

And you gave me what I need

And I hope you find your freedom  

For eternity

You were there for summer dreaming

And you are a friend indeed

And I hope you find your freedom

Eventually

You were there for summer dreaming

And you gave me what I need

And I know you'll find your freedom

Eventually

For eternity

     Love JellyB

Thought i'd share with you all a couple of songs that have kept me going for years, they go everywhere with me and I lose myself in them whenever I feel the need.

The Housemartins were a UK band that split in the 80's and reformed as The Beautiful South, if that helps anyone.

THE HOUSEMARTINS

'Lean On Me'

Heavy burden on your shoulder,

Lean on me,

Heavy burden on your shoulder,

Lean on me,

Heavy burden on your shoulder,

Every day just a little bit older,

Heavy burden on your shoulder,

Lean on me

Down and out without hope,

Lean on me,

Down and out without hope,

Lean on me,

Down and out without hope,

I'm right here, I'll help you cope,

Down and out without hope,

Lean on me

Grab a rope and pull me in,

But lean on me,

Everyday you'll have a friend,

But lean on me, lean on me, lean on me,

Grab a rope and pull me in,

Every day you'll have a friend,

Grab a rope, pull me in

When the world's about to end,

And you're looking for a rainy day friend,

Well grab a rope, pull me in and lean on me.

Heavy burden, cloudy skies,

Well lean on me,

I'll be the towel for your weeping eyes,

But lean on me,

If it always feels like rain,

Or you're drowning in lifeless pain,

Heavy burden, go away,

Goodbye hurt, goodbye hurt

Heavy burden on your shoulder,

Lean on me,

Lean on me,

Lean on me,

Heavy burden on your shoulder,

Lean on me.

THE HOUSEMARTINS

'I will See You Through'

In times when your troubles,

Seem more than you can afford,

And you feel, you feel you need a friend,

Someone to share the load,

And when your skies go cloudy,

I want you to know, got a friend thats true,

Just like a shelter in the time of storm,

I'll see you through, that's what I'll do

When your dreams are scattered, just like the wind blown sand,

And you feel, you feel you need a friend,

I'll be there, reach out your hand,

Amd when the tempest is raging,

Want you to know, got a friend thats true,

Just like a shelter in the time of storm,

I'll see you through, that's what I'll do

I'll see you through your bad times,

I'll see you through your fears,

I'll see you through your hang-ups,

Honey I'll dry all your tears,

Amd when the tempest is raging,

Want you to know, got a friend thats true,

Just like a shelter in the time of storm,

I'll see you through, that's what I'll do

I will see you through, I will see you through,

I will see you through, I will see you through,

When my load got heavy, did you see me through,

When my world got to hard to bear, did you see me through,

What would you do, I will see you through,

What would you do, I will see you through,

What would you do, I will see you through,

What would you do, I will see you through.

We as survivors feel that we are unloveable.  Here is a song that I think fits, that I probably should listen to more often.

Celine Dion - Love Doesn't Ask Why

Love doesn't ask why

It speaks from the heart

And never explains

Don't you know that

Love doesn't think twice

It can come all at once

Or whisper from a distance

Don't ask me if this feeling's right or wrong

It doesn't have to make much sense

It just has to be this strong

'Cause when you're in my arms I understand

We don't try to have a voice

When our hearts make the choices

There's no plan

It's in our hands

Love doesn't ask why

It speaks from the heart

And never explains

Don't you know that

Love doesn't think twice

It can come all at once

Or whisper from a distance

Now I can feel what you're afraid to say

If you give your soul to me

Will you give too much away

We can't let this moment pass us by

Can't question this chance

Or expect any answers

We can try

But love doesn't ask you why

(Instrumental)

So let's take what we found

And wrap it around us

Love doesn't ask why

It speaks from the heart

And never explains

Don't you know that

Love doesn't think twice

It can come all at once

Or whisper from a distance

Love doesn't ask why

Toy Soliders - Martika

Step by step

Heart to heart

Left right left

We all fall down,

Like toy soliders.

It wasn't my intention to mislead you

It should have never been this way

What can I say?

It's true, I did extend the invitation

I never knew how long you'd stay.

When you hear temptation call

It's your heart that takes, takes the fall.

Won't you come out and play with me?

Step by step

Heart to heart

Left right left

We all fall down

Like toy soliders

Bit by bit

Tears apart

The battle wages on

For toy soliders

It's getting harder to wake up in the morning

My head is spinning constantly

How could it be?

How could I be so blind to this addiction

If I don't stop the next one is going to be me.

Only emptiness remains

It replaces all, all the pain.

Won't you come out and play with me?

Step by step

Heart to heart

left right left

We all fall down

Like toy soliders

Only emptiness remains

It replaces all, all the painWon't you come out and play with me?

Step by step

Heart to heart

left right left

We all fall down

Like toy soliders.

Winter - Tori Amos

Snow can wait, I forgot my mittens

Wipe my nose, get my new boots on

I get a little warmer in my heart

When I think of winter

I put my hand in my fathers glove

I run off where the drifts get deeper

Sleeping beauty trips me with a frown

I hear a voice "you must learn to stand up for yourself

because I can't always be around."

He says when you make up your mind

When you gunna love you as much as I do

When you gunna make up your mind?

Cause things are gunna change so fast

All the white horses are still in bed

I tell you that I'll always want you near

You say that things change, my dear

Boys get discovered as winter melts

Flowers competing for the sun

Years go by and I'm here still waiting

Withering where some snowman was

Mirror Mirror where's teh crystal palace

But only I can see myself skating around the truth

Who am I?

But I know dad the ice is getting thin

Hair is greay and the fires are burning

So many dreams on the shelf you say

I wanted you to be proud

I always wanted that myself

He says when you make up your mind

When you gunna love you as much as I do

When you gunna make up your mind?

Cause things are gunna change so fast

All the white horses have gone ahead

I tell you that I'll always want you near

You say that things change, my dear

Two songs...

One is called "Hard Love" don't know who wrote it, but Tony Rice performed it.  It's about a man, trying to live past his childhood abuse.

It's long, so I won't reproduce all the lyrics here, but the pertinent parts are these...

"I recall the gentle courtesy you showed me as I tried

to dissemble into likeness all the love I felt inside

but for every song of laughter, there was another song that cried

this ain't no easy weekend, this is hard love

It's hard love

it was hard on you I know

when the only love I gave to you was the love I couldn't show

but you forgave the heart that loved you

as your lover turned to go

leaving nothing but the memory of hard love

Now I'm standing in this phone booth

with a dollar and a dime

wondering what to say to you

to ease your troubled mind

for the Lord's cross might redeem us

but our own just wastes our time

and to tell the two apart is often hard, love

Well it's hard love

but it's love all the same

not the stuff of fantasy

but more than just a game

and the only kind of miracle

that's worthy of the name

for the love that heals our lives is mostly hard love."

The other is "I'm moving on" by Rascal Flats.  I know someone already mentioned the song, but the lyrics are so beautiful that I need to post them.

I've delt with my ghosts,

and I've faced all my demons

and I'm finally content with the past I regret.

I find you find strength

in moments of weakness

For once I'm at peace with myself

I've been burdened with blame

trapped in the past for too long

I'm movin on

I've lived in this place

and I know all these faces

Each one is different

but they're always the same

they mean me no harm

but its time that I face it

They'll never allow me to change

But I never dreamed home

would be where I don't belong

I'm moving on

I'm moving on

and last I could see

life has been patiently waiting for me

and I know there's no guarantees

but I'm not alone

there comes a time

in everyones life

when all you can see are the years passing by

and I have made up my mind

that those days are gone

I sold what I could,

and packed what I couldn't

and I stopped to fill up,

on the way outta town

I loved like I should

and lived like I shouldn't

I had to loose everything to find out

Maybe forgiveness will find me somewhere down this road

I'm movin on

I'm movin on

That one's so good I may have to post it in the main forum for a few days.

Take care,

Shaina

I'll Stand By You by The Pretenders

Oh, why look so sad?

The tears are in your eyes

Come on and come to me now

Don't be ashamed to cry

Let me see you through

Cuz I've seen the dark side too

When the night falls on you

Don't know what to do

Nothing you confess

Could make me love you less

I'll stand by you

I'll stand by you

Won't let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you

So, if you're mad, get mad

Don't hold it all inside

Come on and talk to me now

Hey, what you got to hide?

I get angry too

Well I'm a lot like you

When you're standing at the crossroads

Don't know which path to choose

Let me come along

Cuz even if you're gone

I'll stand by you

I'll stand by you

Won't let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you

Let me in into your darkest hour

And I'll never desert you

I'll stand by you

And when

When the night falls on you baby

You'll feel it all alone

Wandering on your own

I'll stand by you

I'll stand by you

Won't let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you

Take me in into your darkest hour

And I'll never desert you

I'll stand by you

I'll stand by you

Won't let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you
