For Kristen by Kyler England

shadows dance feverishly in my mind
the dark corners are seeping, swiftly, silently
and i can see nothing but ugliness, ugliness, ugliness
through eyes misled by fear


fear of what the dark conceals
fear of what the truth may reveal
things i can't bear to hear


innocence has vanished
and faith in goodness has disappeared
they were swallowed, swallowed, swallowed up by the sea


in my dreams she comes to me
and she tells me everything is all right
and i believe her
and i wake to the disappointment of the truth
veiled by the cloak of the night


one day she was here
and the next she had disappeared
and no one knows where


innocence has been battered
and faith in goodness has been betrayed
they were swallowed, swallowed, swallowed up by the sea

"Eve" by Chantal Kreviazuk

Eve is gone again
Back to her palace, back to her island
Eve can smile again
And run round the hedges in the Garden of Eden

Run the way you did before the nightmares
Run just like before the overkill
Run the way you did it's over darling

Oh, could I be so gentle
Oh, so soft and tender
Oh and could I forgive
And could I die in my mother's arms like her

Eve's a child again
Sing her a lullaby
Read to her every night

Eve's in heaven
Plenty of friends are there
No one the enemy

Run the way you did
Before the nightmares
Run just like before the
Overkill
Run the way you did it's
Over darling

Oh, could I be so gentle
Oh, so soft and tender
Oh and could I forgive
And could I die in my mother's
Arms like her

Like her

Run the way you did
Before the nightmares
Like her

Run just like before the
Overkill
Like her

Run the way you did it's
Over darling
Like her

Run the way you did
Before the nightmares
Like her
Run just like before the
Overkill
Like her

Run the way you did it's
Over darling

Could I die in my mother's
Arms like her

"Get Me Through December" by Natalie MacMaster

How pale is the sky that brings forth the rain
As the changing of seasons prepares me again
For the long bitter nights and the wild Winter day
My heart has grown cold my love stored away
My heart has grown cold my love stored away

I've been to the mountain left my tracks in the snow
Where souls have been lost and the walking wounded go
I've taken the pain no girl should endure
But faith can move mountains of that I am sure
Faith can move mountains of that I am sure

Get me through December
A promise I'll remember
Just get me through December
So I can start again

No divine purpose brings freedom from sin
And peace is a gift that must come from within
I've looked for the love that will bring me to rest
Feeding this hunger beating strong in my chest
Feeding this hunger beating strong in my chest

Get me through December
A promise I'll remember
Just get me through December
So I can start again

"Smoke" by Natalie Imbruglia

My Lullaby, hung out to dry
What's up with that
It's over
Where are you dad
Mum's lookin' sad
What's up with that
It's dark in here

Why, bleeding is breathing
You're hiding underneath the smoke in the room
Try, bleeding is believing
I used to

My mouth is dry
Forgot how to cry
What's up with that
You're hurting me
I'm running fast
Can't hide the past
What's up with that
You're pushing me

Why, bleeding is breathing
You're hiding underneath the smoke in the room
Try, bleeding is believing
I used to
I used to

Why, bleeding is breathing
You're hiding underneath the smoke in the room
Try, bleeding is believing
I saw you crawling on the floor
Why, bleeding is breathing
You're hiding underneath the smoke in the room
Try, bleeding is believing
I saw you crawling on the floor
Why, bleeding is breathing
You're hiding underneath the smoke in the room
Try, bleeding is believing
I saw you crawling on the floor

White Lion - Little Fighter

ARE YOU CRYIN' TONIGHT,
ARE YOU FEELIN' ALRIGHT
I'LL TELL THE WORLD THAT YOU ARE,
DOWN ON YOUR  LUCK,
YOU WERE ONE OF THE KIND
ONE WHO'D NEVER GIVE IN
EVEN WHEN THEY PUT A PRICE ON YOUR HEAD

         HAS ANYONE HEARD THE TALES YOU TELL
         OR SEEN THE SCARS YOU WEAR
         DID ANYONE SPEAK UP WHEN YOU FELL
         DOES ANYBODY CARE

RISE AGAIN LITTLE FIGHTER
AND LET THE WORLD KNOW THE REASON WHY
SHINE AGAIN LITTLE FIGHTER
AND DON'T LET 'EM END THE THINGS YOU DO

AND YOU WERE ONE WITH A CAUSE,
AND A REASON TO BE
YOU WERE A FIGHTER FOR PEACE ON THIS EARTH
AND YOU WERE NEVER AFRAID
YOU PUT YOUR LIFE ON THE LINE
AND YOU WERE ALWAYS ALONE OUT ON THE SEA

          WITHOUT  A WEAPON IN YOUR HAND
          YOU CAME TO FIGHT A WAR
          THEY TOOK YOUR LIFE, BUT DIDN'T KNOW
          THAT YOU WOULD NEVER DIE

RISE AGAIN LITTLE FIGHTER
AND LET THE WORLD KNOW THE REASON WHY
SHINE AGAIN LITTLE FIGHTER
AND DON'T LET 'EM END THE THINGS YOU DO

           ARE YOU FEELIN' ALRIGHT
           CAUSE I CARE

RISE AGAIN LITTLE FIGHTER
AND LET THE WORLD KNOW THE REASON WHY
SHINE AGAIN LITTLE FIGHTER
AND DON'T LET 'EM END THE THINGS YOU DO

RISE AGAIN LITTLE FIGHTER
AND LET THE WORLD KNOW THE REASON WHY
SHINE AGAIN LITTLE FIGHTER
AND DON'T LET 'EM END THE THINGS YOU DO

This is a sweet song, originally from the broadway musical Sweeney Todd....I hummed it softly under my breath to my best friend (love you, sweetie girl) in the heartbreaking throes of a nightmare, to soothe her and let her know she was safe.  I also sing my kids to sleep with it, too:

Nothing's gonna harm you
Not while I'm around
Nothing's gonna harm you
No sir, not while I'm around
Demons are prowling everywhere
Nowadays
I'll send 'em howling I don't care
I got ways

No one's gonna hurt you
No one's gonna dare
Others can desert you
Not to worry, whistle, I'll be there

Demons'll charm you with a smile, for a while
But in time, nothing can harm you
Not while I'm around

Being close and being clever, ain't like being true
I don't need to - I would never hide a thing from you
Like some

No one's gonna hurt you
No one's gonna dare
Others can desert you
Not to worry, whistle, I'll be there

Demons'll charm you with a smile, for a while
But in time, nothin' can harm you
Not while I'm around.

18 Wheeler by Pink

Hey hey man, what's your problem
I see you try to hurt me bad
Don't know what you're up against
Maybe you should reconsider
Come up with another plan
'Cause you know I'm not that kind of girl
That'll lay there let you come first
You can push me out the window
I'll just get back up
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler truck
And I won't give a f***
You can hang me like a slave
I'll go underground
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler but
You can't keep me down
Hey hey girl, are you ready for today
You got your shield and sword
'Cause it's time to play the games
You are beautiful even though you're not for sure
Don't you let him pull you by your skirt
You're gonna get your feelings hurt
You can push me out the window
I'll just get back up
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler truck
And I won't give a f***
You can hang me like a slave
I'll go underground
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler but
You can't keep me down

Everywhere that I go
There's someone waiting chain me
Everything that I say
There's someone trying to short change me
I am only this way
Because of what you have made me
And I'm not gonna break

When I first heard this song and immediately loved it evenbefore I identified what had happened to me. I still love it and can relate to EVERY line in the song.


I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much
To go back an' pretend
'Cause I've heard it all before
And I've been down there on the floor
No one's ever gonna
Keep me down again

Oh yes I am wise
But it's wisdom born of pain
Yes, I've paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything
I am strong
I am invincible
I am woman

You can bend but never break me
'Cause it only serves to make me
More determined
To achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
'Cause you've deepened
The conviction in my soul

Oh yes I am wise
But it's wisdom born of pain
Yes, I've paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything
I am strong
I am invincible
I am woman

I am woman watch me grow
See me standing toe to toe
As I spread my lovin' arms
Across the land
But I'm still an embryo
With a long long way to go
Until I make my
Brother understand

Oh yes I am wise
But it's wisdom born of pain
Yes, I've paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to
I can face anything
I am strong
I am invincible
I am woman
Oh, I am woman
I am invincible
I am strong

Don't Stop Dancing by Creed

At times life is wicked and I just can’t
see the light
A silver lining sometimes isn’t enough
To make some wrongs seem right
Whatever life brings
I’ve been through everything
And now I’m on my knees again

But I know I must go on
Although I hurt I must be strong
Because inside I know that many
feel this way

Children don’t stop dancing
Believe you can fly
Away…away

At times life’s unfair and you know
it’s plain to see
Hey God I know I’m just a dot in
this world
Have you forgot about me?
Whatever life brings
I’ve been through everything
And now I’m on my knees again

But I know I must go on
Although I hurt I must be strong
Because inside I know that many
feel this way

Am I hiding in the shadows?
Forget the pain and forget the sorrows

But I know I must go on
Although I hurt I must be strong
Because inside I know that many
feel this way

Children don’t stop dancing
Believe you can fly
Away…away

Am I hiding in the shadows?
Are we hiding in the shadows?

I could go on for ever with them though

I think this song is a really good one


[u] In the end ~ linkin park [/u]

It starts with
one thing/I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
keep that in mind/I designed this rhyme
to explain in due time
All I knoe
Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
Its so unreal
Didn't look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on/But didn't even know
Wasted it all just to
Watch it go
I kept everything inside and even tho I tried/It all fell apart
What it meant to me will evetually/be a memory/of a time when

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
And lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

One thing/i don't know why
Doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind/I designed this rhyme
To remind myself How
I tried so hard

take care
#Carolyn

-Somebody Else's Song- (Lifehouse)

Can't change this feeling
I'm way out of touch
Can't change this meaning
It means too much
Never been this lonely
Never felt so good
Can't be the only one misunderstood

I remind myself of somebody else
I'm feeling like I'm chasing
Like I'm facing myself alone
I've got somebody else's thoughts in my head
I want some of my own

Can you see me up here
Would you bring me back down
Cause I've been living to see my fears
As they fall to the ground

I remind myself of somebody else
I'm feeling like I'm chasing
Like I'm facing myself alone
I've got somebody else's thoughts in my head
I want some of my own

Am I hiding behind my doubts
Are they hiding behind me
Closer to finding out
It doesn't mean anything.

-Breathing- (Lifehouse) (This is also my theme song ;)

"I'm finding my way back to sanity again
Though I don't really know what
I'm gonna do when I get there
And take a breath and hold on tight
Spin around one more time
And gracefully fall back to the arms of grace

I'm looking past the shadows
In my mind into the truth
And I'm trying to identify
The voices in my head
God, which one's you
Let me feel one more time
What it feels like to feel
And break these calluses off of me
One more time."

-Sick Cycle Carousel- (Lifehouse)

If shame had a face I think it would kinda look like mine
If it had a home would it be my eyes?
Would you believe me if I said I'm tired of this?
Well here we go now one more time

So where will this end
It goes on and on
Over and over and over again
Keep spinning around
I know that it won't stop
Til I step down from this for good

I never thought I'd end up here
Never thought I'd be standing where I am
I guess I kinda thought that it would be easier than this
I guess I was wrong now one more time.

-Simon- (Lifehouse)

Catch your breath hit the wall
Scream out loud as you start to crawl
Back in your cage the only place
Where they will leave you alone

Cause the weak will seek the weaker
Til they've broken them
Could you get it back again
Would it be the same

Fulfillment to their lack of strength
At your expense
Left you with no defense
They tore it down

And I have felt the same as you
I've felt the same as you
I've felt the same

Locked inside the only place
Where you feel sheltered where you feel safe
You lost yourself in your search
To find something else to hide behind

The fearful always preyed upon your confidence
Did they see the consequence they pushed you around
The arrogant build kingdoms made of the different ones
Breaking them til they've become just another crown

And I have felt the same as you
I've felt the same as you
I've felt the same as you
I've felt the same

Refuse to feel, anything at all
Refuse to slip, refuse to fall
Can't be weak, can't stand still
You watch your back cause no one will

You don't know why they had to go this far
Traded your worth for these scars for your only company
Don't believe the lies that they have told to you
Not one word was true

You're alright
You're alright
You're alright

And I have felt the same as you
I've felt the same as you
I've felt the same as you
I've felt the same.


-Quasimodo- (Lifehouse)

You could be right
And I'll be real
Honesty won't be a pain
That you will have to feel

Cause I don't need your approval to find my worth
I've been trapped inside of my own mind
Afraid to open my eyes cause of what I'd find
And I don't want to live like this anymore

There goes my pain
There goes my chains
Did you see them falling
Cause this feeling
That has no meaning

There goes the world
Off of my shoulders
There goes the world
Off of my back
There it goes

Does it scare you that I can be something different than you
Would it make you feel more comfortable if I wasn't
You can't control me
And you can't take away from me who I am

There goes my pain
There goes my chains
Did you see them falling
Cause this feeling
That has no meaning

There goes the world
Off of my shoulders
There goes the world
Off of my back

You can't change me
You can't break me

There goes the world
Off of my shoulders
There goes the world
Off of my back

Have you ever felt
Like your only comfort was your cage
You're not alone
I have felt the same as you
Have you ever felt
Like your secrets give you away
You're not alone
I have been there, too

Everyone is looking
And everyone is laughing
But I think everyone feels the same
Everybody wants to feel okay
Everybody wants to
Everybody wants to feel

There goes my pain
There goes my chains
Did you see them falling
Cause this feeling
That has no meaning

There goes the world
Off of my shoulders
There goes the world
Off of my back

Cause I don't want it
I don't want it.

-Somewhere In Between- (Lifehouse)

I can't be losing sleep over this, no, I can't
And now I cannot stop pacing
Give me a few hours I'll have this all sorted out
If my mind would just stop racing

Cause I cannot stand still
I can't be this unsturdy
This cannot be happening

This is over my head
But underneath my feet
Cause by tomorrow morning
I'll have this thing beat

And everything will be back
To the way that it was
I wish that it was just that easy

Cause I'm waiting for tonight
Then waiting for tomorrow
And I'm somewhere in between

What is real and just a dream
What is real and just a dream
What is real and just a dream

Would you catch me if I fall
Out of what I fell in
Don't be surprised if I collapse
Down at your feet again
I don't want to run away from this
I know that I just don't need this.

-He- (Jars Of Clay)

Don't try to reach me
I'm already dead
The pain when it grips me
For things that I've done

Well I try to make you proud
But for crying out loud
Just give me a chance to hide away
Exhaustion takes over
Will this someday be over?

Chorus:
Fearful tears are running down
The pain you've laid dont speak a sound
Don't take my heart away from me
And they think I fell down.....again

Daddy don't you love me
Then why do you hit me?
And Momma don't you love me
Then why do you hurt me?

Well I've tried to make you proud
But for crying out loud
Just give me a chance to hide away
Exhaustion takes over
Will this someday be over?

repeat chorus twice

A teardrop falls
From up in the heavens
Drowning the sorrow of angels in high
For the least of the helpless
The hopeless, the loveless
My Jesus, His children,
He holds in His arms

He loves you, He sees you,
He knows you, protects you,
He needs you, He holds you
(repeated a bunch of time)

-I Can't Catch You- (Sixpence None The Richer)

I guess you could say I'm a little afraid
What if you go away?
I've seen it before
I've been there before
If I have to love myself
Tell me how to love myself
What's there to love about myself?
I just wanted to see that as a person you want me
But I'm feeling the pain of all these bags in the way
And I'm thinking you're just gonna run away
And I can't catch you

I guess you could say
That I want you to stay
'Cause you have this strange knack
Adds a glow to my black
As you chase it all away
And I hope that you can see
I will someday leave these things
I am waiting to be free
But I'm feeling the pain of all these bags in the way
And I'm thinking you're just gonna run away
And I can't catch you
Oh, I want to catch you.


-Drifting- (Sixpence None The Richer)

Drifting away from you
Spinning down to the pinpoint drop of isolation
In a spell
Walking away from the fire
That keeps my heart
From turning ice

Golden feet grace the surface of the sea
Sinking deeper I view them from underneath
Flailing, kicking as I head for the deep
I question a hypothetical lead supper
Oh God receive my outstretched hand

Will I inhale the blue
Spinning down upon the glass
A ghost towards realization of a cell
Enclosing the hauntings of a past
That blind the eyes
And rust the heart

So I fell
I need you to take my hand
And keep my heart from ice .

-Damaged- (Plumb)

Dreaming comes so easily
'Cause it's all that I've known
True love is a fairy tale
I'm damaged, so how would I know

I'm scared and I'm alone
I'm ashamed
And I need for you to know

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say
And you can't take back what you've taken away
'Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say

And you can't take back what you've taken away
'Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

Healing comes so painfully
And it chills to the bone
Will anyone get close to me?
I'm damaged, as I'm sure you know

There's mending for my soul
An ending to this fear
Forgiveness for a man who was stronger
I was just a little girl, but I can't go back.

Don't Let Me Get Me
by Pink

I never win 1st place
I don't support the team
I can't take direction
And my socks are never clean
Teachers dated me
My parents hated me
I was always in a fight
'Cause I can't do nothing right
Everyday I fight a war against the mirror
Can't take the person staring back at me
I'm a hazard to myself
Don't let me get me
I'm my own worst enemy
It's bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
Don't want to be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else
LA told me
You'll be a pop star
All you have to change
Is everything you are
Tired of being compared
To #### Britney Spears
She's so pretty
That just ain't me
So doctor doctor won't you please prescribe me something
A day in the life of someone else

This song has special significance for me. :)

Birmingham (Amanda Marshall)

Virgil Spencer's got a nineteen-inch Hitachi
And many demons lingering
Friday night he pulled a gun to change the channel
Something that he picked up from the King
His wife remembers well the man she knew
Seems the dreams she had have all turned black and blue
She's wasted years
No time for tears

[Chorus]
Cause there's another chance and a someday soon
Shining like the Alabama moon
She's looking for her promised land
Out beyond the lights of... Birmingham

It's three a.m. and Virgil's passed out on the sofa
a fifth of Jim Beam on the floor
She's packed a bag she slips the keys out of his pocket
She's careful not to slam the door
And as she drives she rubs her rosary
She's never been so all alone, she's never felt so free
She's got miles to go
Blind faith and hope


As the rain falls down upon the interstate
Any doubts she had are all but washed away
one long look back
At birmingham

Cause there's another chance and a someday soon
Shining like the Alabama moon
She's looking for her promised land
Out beyond the lights of... Birmingham


So Unsexy (Alanis Morrisette)

                                            Oh these little rejections how they add up quickly
One small sideways look and I feel so ungood
Somewhere along the way I think I gave you the power to make
Me feel the way I thought only my father could

Oh these little rejections how they seem so real to me
One forgotten birthday I'm all but cooked
How these little abandonments seem to sting so easily
I'm 13 again am I 13 for good?

I can feel so unsexy for someone so beautiful
So unloved for someone so fine
I can feel so boring for someone so interesting
So ignorant for someone of sound mind
Oh these little protections how they fail to serve me
One forgotten phone call and I'm deflated
Oh these little defenses how they fail to comfort me
Your hand pulling away and I'm devastated

When will you stop leaving baby?
When will I stop deserting baby?
When will I start staying with myself?

Oh these little projections how they keep springing from me
I jump my ship as I take it personally
Oh these little rejections how they disappear quickly
The moment I decide not to abandon me

Well , I turn to a twisted sense of humur when I get drunk or stressed, sing christmas carols a lot.  Monty Python's I'm  a Lumberjack... silly songs get me by.

in terms of healing, i sometimes do a set of Stone Temple Pilot's "Sex Type thing" _LOUD LOUD, and follow it with Tori's "Me and a gun".  I'm not good, and i dont play well (rather, i don't paly guitar at all, but I do "got guts" and will attempt it for the sake of friends).  I do it a lot at rallys and stuff.  it's a hard therapy- it re-lives everything.  I will not key the lyrics becaus ethey are TOO TRIGGERING even for me if i;m not in my "place"

I liked a lot of the songs that have already been mentioned and I was going to add 'Bring on the Rain'.  but I saw that some one else already has.  

I really enjoy Bebo Norman's songs and I think that they have a lot of meaning in them.  They do touch on religion though so be careful...  :)


I'm Alright
by Bebo Norman

 
I've got a little hope in my pocket, I want to share a bit with you
Just be careful that you don't drop it, but don't worry if you do
'Cause I got broken down inside me, and I might just need some help
But I will get by

And I've got demons in my history, got bone beneath my skin
But I've been taken by a mystery, yes, I've been taken in
And sometimes voices down inside me try to fight me for myself
I will get by

What have I got to live for
If there's nothing beating in my chest
What have I got to live for
When this world starts turning, it's burning me up
I'm alright

I used to think love was just a barter, second hand coincidence
What doesn't kill you just makes you harder, so I used my common sense
Keeping cold to keep my distance, ‘til you took my pride away
Now I will get by

I am not afraid, no, I am not afraid
And I will not go crazy here

I've got a little hope here in my pocket, I want to share a bit with you
So just be careful that you don't drop it, but don't worry if you do
'Cause I got voices down inside me, and I might just need some help
I will get by

What have I got to live for
If there's nothing beating in my chest
What have I got to live for
When this world starts turning, burning me up
When my heart is hurting, I'm learning the rough
When this world starts turning, it's burning me up
I'm alright

Where the Angels Sleep
by Bebo Norman

I don't know why I always run
is it fear of the fall or fear of the touch
And I don't know where the angels sleep

And I don't know how to really love
I've never stood still long enough
And I don't know where the angels sleep

But I am alive and standing strong
I'm no farther forward, just farther along
I hold on to my pride and dig in deep
It's pulling me down, and I am no closer to release
And I don't know where the angels sleep

I don't know how to see you now
The friend from before is different somehow
And I don't know where the angels sleep

And I don't know when I'll love again
But I don't trust myself to just let you in
And I don't know where the angels sleep

It's taken ten thousand days
To get stuck in my ways
And it offers no grace
I cannot stand this place
With love in my face
I walk away slowly

I don't know where the angels sleep
No, I don't know where the angels sleep
_________________________________________________________

Healing Song
by Bebo Norman

I can tell by this crack of light
Oh girl this is gonna be, it's gonna be a beautiful day
And I can tell by this stretch of silver
Spreading all out across the curves of your face

And for the love, for the love of God
I've gathered up my pride, I've gathered up my bits and bone
And in a world that broke me down
I'm standing up, but not alone

'Cause this is a healing song, oh and I've got a heart that fails
But love is pushing me along, I'm lifting up above this veil
This is a healing song, oh and I don't know if you can tell
But love is pushing me along
I'm pressing up against the rail, pressing up against the rail

I can smell the summer in the air
And I swear I can almost see, I can almost see my soul
Son, I know that it don't seem fair
But I'm turning away from here, and oh Lord, I am coming home

I've got friends here that love me
I've got all this mercy beating in my blood
And I've got friends here that love me
And that's something good, that's something good

You and I, we've come so far
We've come so far, we cannot look back
I said you and I, we've come so far
We've come so far, we cannot look back

I said you and I (you and I, we've come so far)
We've come so far (you and I, we've come so far)
We've come so far (you and I, we've come so far)
We cannot look back (you and I cannot look back)

I said you and I (you and I, we've come so far)
We've come so far (you and I, we've come so far)
We've come so far (you and I, we've come so far)
No, we cannot look back (we cannot look back)

This song randomly popped into my head one day, when I listened to what I was singing I got chills.

Bullet With Butterfly Wings  Smashing Pumpkins

The world is a vampire, sent to drain
secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames
and what do i get, for my pain
betrayed desires, and a piece of the game
even though i know-i suppose i'll show
all my cool and cold-like old job
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
now i'm naked, nothing but an animal
but can you fake it, for just one more show
and what do you want, i want to change
and what have you got
when you feel the same
even though i know-i suppose i'll show
all my cool and cold-like old job
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
tell me i'm the only one
tell me there's no other one
jesus was an only son
tell me i'm the chosen one
jesus was an only son for you
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
and i still believe that i cannot be saved

Just a Girl
Gwen Stefani

Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
I'm exposed
And it's no big surprise
Don't you think I know
Exactly where I stand
This world is forcing me
To hold your hand

'Cause I'm just a girl, little ol' me
Don't let me out of your sight
I'm just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don't let me have any rights
Oh... I've had it up to here!

The moment that I step outside
So many reasons
For me to run and hide
I can't do the little things
I hold so dear
'Cause it's all those little things
That I fear

'Cause I'm just a girl,
I'd rather not be
'Cause they won't let me drive
Late at night
I'm just a girl,
Guess I'm some kind of freak
'Cause they all sit and stare
With their eyes
I'm just a girl,
Take a good look at me Just your typical prototype
Oh... I've had it up to here!
Oh... am I making myself clear?

I'm just a girl
I'm just a girl in the world...
That's all that you'll let me be!

I'm just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb
Makes me worry some
I'm just a girl, what's my destiny?
What I've succumbed to
Is making me numb
I'm just a girl, my apologies
What I've become is so burdensome
I'm just a girl, lucky me
Twiddle-dum there's no comparison

Oh... I've had it up to!
Oh... I've had it up to!
Oh... I've had it up to here.

A Place For My Head~Linkin' Park

I watch how the
Moon sits in the sky in the dark night
Shining with the light from the sun
The sun doesn't give life to the moon to assuming
The moon's going to owe it one
It makes me think of how you act to me
You do
Favors and then rapidly
You just turn around and start asking me about
Things you want back from me
I'm sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed -
While I find a place to rest
I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
[You'll see it's not meant to be]
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head
Maybe someday I'll be just like you and
Step on people like you do and run away
The people I thought I knew
I remember back then who you were
You used to be calm, used to be strong
Used to be generous but you should've known
That you'd wear out your welcome
Now you see
How quiet it is all alone
I'm so sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest
I'm so sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed -
While I find a place to rest
You try to take the best of me
Go away

______________________________________

Forgotten~Linkin' Park

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture is there
The memory won't escape me
But why should I care
There's a place so dark you can't see the end
[Skies cock back] and shock that which can't defend
The rain then sends dripping an acidic question
Forcefully, the power of suggestion
Then with the eyes tightly shut looking thought the rust and rot and dust
A spot of light floods the floor
And pours over the rusted world of pretend
The eyes ease open and its dark again
In the memory you'll find me
Eyes burning up
The darkness holding me tightly
Until the sun rises up
Moving all around screaming of the ups and downs
Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
The wheels go round and the sunset creeps past the
Street lamps, chain-link and concrete
A little piece of paper with a picture drawn floats
On down the street till the wind is gone
The memory now is like the picture was then
When the paper's crumpled up it can't be perfect again
Now you got me caught in the act
You bring the thought back
I'm telling you that
I see it right through you

The Impossible Dream by Tevin Campbell


To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bare with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the un-rightable wrong
To love, pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest to follow the star
And no matter how hopeless and no matter how far
To fight for the right without question or pause
To be willing to march into #### for a heavenly cause

And I know if I'll only be true to this glorious quest
Then my heart will be peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest
Yeah, yes
Oh yeah

And the world will be better for thee
That one man scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star
Mmm-hmmm, star, mmm...


I LOVE this song...:)

IRIS By the Goo Goo Dolls

And I'd give up forever to touch you
Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive

And I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am


__________________________________________


Name By The Goo Goo Dolls

And even though the moment passed me by
I still can't turn away
'Cause all the dreams you never thought you'd lose
Got tossed along the way
And letters that you never meant to send
Get lost or thrown away


And now we're grown up orphans
That never knew their names
We don't belong to no one
That's a shame

But if you could hide beside me
Maybe for a while
And I won't tell no one your name
And I won't tell em' your name


And scars are souvenirs you never lose
The past is never far
Did you lose yourself somewhere out there
Did you get to be a star
And don't it make you sad to know that life
Is more than who we are


We grew up way too fast
And now there's nothing to believe
Reruns all become our history
A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio
And I won't tell no one your name
And I won't tell em' your name
I won't tell em' your name
Mmm, mmm, mmm,

I won't tell em' your name… Ow!


I think about you all the time
But I don't need the same
It's lonely where you are come back down,
And I won't tell em your name

This song was read out as a peom to the children of year six when they left for senior school.
I loved the words:

LEE ANN WOMACK LYRICS

"I Hope You Dance"

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',
Don't let some #### bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone.)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

Dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance..
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone)

This song lately has been my hope, it has helped me out alot and still is.If you look at my quote real closely you may see the lines of this song that just stick with me:)


"New Day" By Celine Dion

A NEW DAY HAS COME
A new day has...come

I was waiting for so long
For a miracle to come
Everyone told me to be strong
Hold on and don't shed a tear

Through the darkness and good times
I knew I'd make it through
And the world thought I had it all
But I was waiting for you

Hush, love

I see a light in the sky
Oh, it's almost blinding me
I can't believe
I've been touched by an angel with love
Let the rain come down and wash away my tears
Let it fill my soul and drown my fears
Let it shatter the walls for a new, new sun
A new day has...come

Where it was dark now there's light
Where there was pain now there's joy
Where there was weakness, I found my strength
All in the eyes of a boy

Hush, love

I see a light in the sky
Oh, it's almost blinding me
I can't believe
I've been touched by an angel with love
Let the rain come down and wash away my tears
Let it fill my soul and drown my fears
Let it shatter the walls for a new, new sun
A new day has...come

A new day has...come
Ohhh, a light... OOh

this song makes me feel better about me, especially if i sing it loud. it feels very close to my situation.

"better than you" - Moist
i've sold out every memory i have borrowed i have bought from you
these pictures run like water to dilute me lay me over you
and i thought that this would be so right

and everyone and everyone is better than you

i've felt each slow perversion fosters dying killed the truth in me
gone quietly gone completely cold reminder what you tried to be
and i knew that this would be so right

and everyone and everyone is better than you

and it's hard and it's hated and it's hard
and if so and if so

and everyone and everyone is better than you

I have a few myself that help me get through some rough spots:

Cry - Holly Cole Trio

Cry if you want
I wont tell you not to
I won’t try to cheer you up
Ill just be here if you want me

It’s no use in keeping a stiff upper lip
You can weep you can sleep you can loosen your grip
You can frown you can drown and go down with the ship
You cry if you want to
Don’t ever apologize venting your pain
Its something to me you don’t need to explain
I don’t need to know why
I don’t think it’s insane
You can cry if you want to

The windows are closed
The neighbours aren’t home
If it’s better with me than to do it alone
I'll draw all the curtains and unplug the phone
You can cry if you want

You can stare at the ceiling and tear at your hair
Swallow your feelings and stager and swear
You could show things and throw things and I wouldn’t care
You can cry if you want to

I won’t make fun of you
I won’t tell any one
I won’t analyze what you do or you should have done
I won’t advise you to go and have fun
You can cry if you want to

Well it’s empty and ugly and terribly sad
I can’t feel what you feel but I no it feels bad
I no that its real and it makes you so mad
You could cry

Cry if you want to I won’t tell you not to
I won’t try and cheer you up
Ill just be here if you want me; to be
Near you

I also like:

This is To Mother You - Sinead O'Connor

This is to mother you
To comfort you and get you through
Through when your nights are lonely
Through when your dreams are only blue
This is to mother you

This is to be with you
To hold you and to kiss you too
For when you need me I will do
What your own mother didn't do
Which is to mother you

All the pain that you have known
All the violence in your soul
All the 'wrong' things you have done
I will take from you when I come
All mistakes made in distress
All your unhappiness
I will take away with my kiss, yes
I will give you tenderness

For child I am so glad I've found you
Although my arms have always been around you
Sweet bird although you did not see me
I saw you

And I'm here to mother you
To comfort you and get you through
Through when your nights are lonely
Through when your dreams are only blue
This is to mother you

I also like to listen to the song called "Echoes" by Vangelis....VERY empowering

Thanks for allowing me to share.

I've got about a million songs.  I'll try to keep it short but if I dont just ignore me...The ones marked with asterisks are the ones that got me through the worst periods I've gone through.

         Sick of Man--Cold
Gave all the vampires back to God that day
No one got raped here but the pains still inside
I'll never love you but I've got words to say
No one betrayed here but the memories lie
I said don't go away
Turned off the lights and then you
Said please don't follow me and you cared
You stole my passion
Burned my everything
There all the same here
Locked up change deep inside
I'll never love you but
I've got words to say
You killed the feeling
but the pains still alive
You kept your feelings hidden
Like a psycho, burned it all down
Take me with you
Wont you let me go
So sick of man

        No One--Cold
Well I can't really believe
No one was sent to get me
And I feel like I'm being erased
and no one got left here
I'm all alone and no one was sent to get me
I'm all alone no one got left here
But I'm fine, no one left here
Well I'm fine
If it's fine then stay
I can't breathe when I see
The pictures sent without you
I feel like I've been erased
No one got left here
I'm all alone no one was sent to get me
I'm all alone no one got left here
I'm so sick of this terrible
instinct it's so hard now
Just to find you
So sick of the terrible instinct
I can only find you
                       
                             
        **Face--Strife**
Imperfection seems to have gotten the best of me
I beat myself down in this fustration
In unreal aspirations
Never allowing progression to begin
Sights set so far ahead
Missing the start I fall once more
I must try one step at a time
Facing the path alone, I will begin again
I will begin again
Obstacles come from within
Sometimes so strong you must wait
Take the time to catch your breath
Face the path and begin again...begin again
Never let yourself go astray
Making a change will take some time
But you've got the time, you've got the time
Face the path alone
Begin again..Face what is there
I must realize what is there
Face, Confront and NEVER GIVE IN
I must try one day at a time
Facing the path alone..
I wont let it win!!


        **Am I the Only One--Strife**
Another day gone by with nothing said          
Another wish wasted, Another thought dead
Crying to myself am I the only one
Trying within myself but what's done is done  
I once thought I knew a little bit
But now I know more about nothing...
Am I the only one?
Trying, trying not to lose what is gone
Trying not to lose what is held dear
Trying not to lose what is now gone
Trying to avoid what I fear
Move a little closer
Move a little further away from me my friend
Put me in this place you know I fear
Am I the only one?


        **Moments Lost--Strife**
Minds decay for moments lost
Nothings done..Nothings said
I wont let it go on
I wont let you steal what's left inside
I wont let it go on
I wont let your actions go justified.


        **Every Single Day--Pennywise**          
See all the people -longing to be
Living their lives regretlessly
Trying to repress all the pain in their lives
reassuring themselves-living with lies
No way to break through-not on my own
Can't push away all the sorrow I've known
Have to release every thought or care
And take control-Life is a dare
I can start over today
Live my life a different way
Cant find a way to erase bad times to make
everything OK  
I'll start over and Live every single day
Regrets and memories-no remorse-no apologies
No reason for me to despair
No future at all--ask if I care
I got time on my side-twenty four hours in my life
Cant hang on to what's in my past
Full speed ahead--hard and fast
At the end with each dropping sun
Can't erase what has been done  
Who cares what happened long ago
I don't want to know
Can't face tomorrow with these thought of yesterday
I can't escape the lies and make them go away
Wish I had the answers to help me make it through
Can't shake these images no matter what I do
I guess I'll use them to make me a stronger man
I'll use each twisted tortured memory to help me understand
And I will learn from mistakes that everyone makes
I've got to find a way
I guess I'll have to live with them
Every Single Day


There are more I could post but I dont want to bore anyone..

This might trigger... but it was written by someone i know (and hope to one day call friend) Jessica Weiser... she has just released her album " After Silence" visit www.jessicaweiser.com for more info but  "October"
Every year this day rolls around
Marked by grief and absence of sound
My lips form syllables but i can't push them out
I feel the fear bubbling up and i am overcome

I couldn't speak
Because you stole the words from me
My body is numb and my tongue stained with shame
Will I ever feel safe again

I am crying out
Do you hear me now
After Silence
I will find this voice agian

I watch the birds form patterns in the clear autumn sky
Somehow I wish I could join them and fly
Away from these memories into the October night
Releasing the anger you've etched in my mind

I couldn't breathe
Because you took that away from me
Your words suffocating and slowly breaking
The girl whose strength is crumbling

I am crying out
Do you hear me now
After Silence
I will find this voice again


I am her newest fan....

Here's another song from my favorite band Pennywise. Every time I get upset I can count on their music to remind me to keep going on.

Broken---Pennywise
Been stuck on the outside since I can't remember when Got up just long enough for them to beat me down again They crawl inside my mind hoping there to find Ways to be fucking with my head They'll never get the best of me I'm fighting back until I'm dead Cause I've been used been abused I've been bruised I've been broken And I'm backed up against the wall But my will to survive can't be stolen And you can't make me fall Half-wits and dim pundits try to ruin my good name Parents and therapists tell me I'm the one to blame They say "take it like a man" but I can't understand Why they won't leave me alone Best friends and enemies think I'd do better on my own When I think I can't go on just want to stay home in my bed The problems of this fucked up world seem to be kept up in my head I take a look around there's nowhere to be found Somewhere to justify my life I guess I'll try to keep on trying someday I'll get it right
