These first two are what i like to sit and listen to on my own, and sometimes cry.  They are the songs that make me wallow in my own self pity, which we all need to do sometimes.

UNINVITED-ALANIS MORRISETTE

Like anyone would be

I am flattered by your fascination with me

Like any hotblooded woman

I have simply wanted an object to crave

But you you're not allowed

You're uninvited

An unfortunate slight

Must be strangely exciting

To watch the stoic squirm

Must be somewhat heartening

To watch shepherd meet shepherd

But you you're not allowed

You're uninvited

An unfortunate slight

Like any uncharted territory

I must seem greatly intriguing

You speak of my love like

You have experienced love like mine before

But this is not allowed

You're uninvited

An unfortunate slight

I don't think you unworty

I need a moment to deliberate

MARY JANE - ALANIS MORRISETTE

What's the matter Mary Jane, you had a hard day

As you place the don't disturb sign on the door

You lost your place in line again, what a pity

You never seem to want to dance anymore

It's a long way down

On this roller coaster

The last chance streetcar

Went off the track

And you're on it

I hear you're counting sheep again Mary Jane

What's the point of tryin' to dream anymore

I hear you're losing weight again Mary Jane

Do you ever wonder who you're losing it for

Well it's full speed baby

In the wrong direction

There's a few more bruises

If that's the way

You insist on heading

Please be honest Mary Jane

Are you happy

Please don't censor your tears

You're the sweet crusader

And you're on your way

You're the last great innocent

And that's why I love you

So take this moment Mary Jane and be selfish

Worry not about the cars that go by

All that matters Mary Jane is your freedom

Keep warm my dear, keep dry

Tell me

Tell me

What's the matter Mary Jane...

This song reminds me of Love, and how lucky I am to have found it at last.  Its by an Irish band so I don't know if all of you guys will have heard of them.

WITH OR WITHOUT YOU - U2

See the stone set in your eyes

See the thorn twist in your side

I wait for you

Sleight of hand and twist of fate

On a bed of nails she makes me wait

And I wait without you

With or without you

With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore

You give it all but I want more

And I'm waiting for you

With or without you

With or without you

I can't live

With or without you

And you give yourself away

And you give yourself away

And you give

And you give

And you give yourself away

My hands are tied

My body bruised, she's got me with

Nothing to win and

Nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away

And you give yourself away

And you give

And you give

And you give yourself away

With or without you

With or without you

I can't live

With or without you

With or without you

With or without you

I can't live

With or without you

With or without you.

This song always reminds me to be strong, and tells me that I have got something worth fighting for.

EVERYBODY HURTS - R.E.M

 

When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,

when you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on.

Don't let yourself go, everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes.

Sometimes everything is wrong. Now it's time to sing along.

When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)

if you feel like letting go, (hold on)

when you think you've had too much of this life, well hang on.

Everybody hurts. Take comfort in your friends.

Everybody hurts. Don't throw your hand. Oh, no. Don't throw your hand.

If you feel like you're alone, no, no, no, you are not alone

If you're on your own in this life, the days and nights are long,

when you think you've had too much of this life to hang on.

Well, everybody hurts sometimes,

everybody cries. And everybody hurts sometimes.

And everybody hurts sometimes. So, hold on, hold on.

Hold on, hold on. Hold on, hold on. Hold on, hold on. (repeat & fade)

(Everybody hurts. You are not alone.)

Words and music by Michelle Branch

Leap Of Faith

One less call to answer,

feeling full of despair,

don't think I can get through it,

just one last prayer.

*And it's a leap of faith,

when you believe there's someone out there,

it's a leap of faith when you believe that someone cares, oh,

and when I call out to you,

will you be right there,

right there.

Searching for the answer,

nobody seems to care,

Oh how I wish that you were here,

beside me,

to wipe away my tears.

*And it's a leap of faith,

when you believe there's someone out there,

it's a leap of faith when you believe that someone cares, oh,

and when I call out to you,

will you be right there,

right there.

Waiting for the answer,

remembering times we would share,

somehow I feel you here beside me,

even though your not there.

*And it's a leap of faith,

when you believe there's someone out there,

it's a leap of faith when you believe that someone cares, oh,

and when I call out to you,

will you be right there-

Bridge:

Right there---

And I'll be waiting by the window for your smile to come through,

and I'll be waiting in the darkness when I call out to you,

and I'll remember when you told me,

I could trust in you-

*And it's a leap of faith,

when you believe there's someone out there,

it's a leap of faith when you believe that someone cares, oh,

and when I call out to you,

will you be right there-

It's a leap of faith,

and I believe that you are out there,

it's a leap of faith and I believe you truly care, oh,

and when I call out to you,

I know you'll be right there,

right there,

and it's a leap of faith.

Ohh I love that song, but I have it by The Corrs :)

I usually listen to Fiona Apple when I'm down, but I also Like Anastacia's songs, they make me happy :)

Anyway, when I think of something I'll post it here... Can't really think of anything right now *blushes*

This song is based on the Montreal Massacre, when Marc Lepine entered an engineering classroom at the Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal, asked the men to leave, and proceeded to shoot the 27 women left. 14 were killed, followed by Lepine's suicide. It as a statement against feminism, which Lepine claimed had ruined his life.

<b>Montreal, December '89</b> by Judy Small

It was a cold December afternoon. The line stretched round the block.

Some of them were weeping, and some were still in shock.

Seven thousand came that day to pay their last respects

to fourteen women slaughtered for no reason but their sex.

And the cameras and the mikes were there to record the grief and fear

of the ordinary people who worked and studied here.

And a woman in her 50's, in a gentle quiet tone,

summed up her sisters' outrage at the murder of their own.

She said, "I wonder why, as I try to make sense of this,

why is it always men who resort to the gun, the sword, and the fist?

Why does gunman sound so familiar while gunwoman doesn't quite ring true?

What is it about men that makes them do the things they do?"

And a man behind her in the line, he started getting steamed.

He said, "It wasn't cause he was a man - this guy was crazy, mad, obscene!"

"Yes, he was crazy," the woman replied "but women go crazy too.

And I've never heard of a woman shooting fourteen men - have you?"

And all those other times came flooding back to me again.

A hundred news reports of men killing families, strangers, friends.

And yes I can remember one or two where a woman's hand held the gun.

But exceptions only prove the rule, and the question still remains...

And don't you wonder why, as you try to make sense of this,

why is it always men who resort to the gun, the sword, and the fist?

Why does gunman sound so familiar while gunwoman doesn't quite ring true?

What is it about men that makes them do the things they do?

And I know there are men of conscience, who aren't like that at all.

Who would never raise a hand in anger and who reject the macho role.

And if you were to ask them about the violence that men do -

I know they'd say they hate male violence too.

And so we wonder why, as we try to make sense of this,

why is it always men who resort to the gun, the sword, and the fist?

Why does gunman sound so familiar, while gunwoman doesn't quite ring true?

What is it about men that makes them do the things they do?

What is it about men, that makes them do the things they do?

Good song for yelling if necessary.

"Losing Grip" - Avril Lavigne

Are you aware of what you make me feel, baby

Right now I feel invisible to you, like I'm not real

Didn't you feel me lock my arms around you

Why'd you turn away?

Here's what I have to say I was left to cry there,

waiting outside there grinning with a lost stare

That's when I decided

[chorus]

Why should I care

Cuz you weren't there when I was scared I was so alone

You, you need to listen I'm starting to trip,

I'm losing my grip and I'm in this thing alone

Am I just some chick you place beside you to take somebody's place

when you turn around can you recognize my face you used to love me,

you used to hug me

But that wasn't the case

Everything wasn't ok I was left to cry there

waiting outside there grinning with a lost stare

That's when I decided

[chorus]

Crying out loud I'm crying out loud

Crying out loud I'm crying out loud

Open your eyes

Open up wide

Why should I care

Cuz you weren't there

when I was scared I was so alone Why should I care

Cuz you weren't there when I was scared I was so alone

Why should I care

If you don't care then I don't care were not going newhere

Why should I care cuz you weren't there when I was scared I was so alone

Why should I care If you don't care then i don't care were not going newhere

"Complicated" - Avril Lavigne

Uh huh, life's like this

Uh huh, uh huh, that's the way it is

Cause life's like this

Uh huh, uh huh that's the way it is

Chill out whatcha yelling' for?

Lay back it's all been done before

And if you could only let it be

you will see

I like you the way you are

When we're drivin' in your car

and you're talking to me one on one but you've become

Somebody else round everyone else

You're watching your back like you can't relax

You're tryin' to be cool you look like a fool to me

Tell me

Why you have to go and make things so complicated?

I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated

Life's like this you

And you fall and you crawl and you break

and you take what you get and you turn it into honesty

and promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it

no no no

You come over unannounced

dressed up like you're someone else

where you are and where it's sad you see

you're making me

laugh out when you strike your pose

take off all your preppy clothes

you know you're not fooling anyone

when you've become

Somebody else round everyone else

Watching your back, like you can't relax

Trying to be cool you look like a fool to me

Tell me

Why you have to go and make things so complicated?

I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated

Life's like this you

and You fall and you crawl and you break

and you take what and you get and you turn it into

honesty

promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it

no no no

Chill out whatcha yelling for?

Lay back, it's all been done before

And if you could only let it be

You will see

Somebody else round everyone else

You're watching your back, like you can't relax

You're trying to be cool, you look like a fool to me

Tell me

Why you have to go and make things so complicated?

I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated

Life's like this you

and You fall and you crawl and you break

and you take what and you get and you turn it into

honesty

promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it

no no no

Why you have to go and make things so complicated?

I see the way you're acting like your somebody else gets me frustrated

Life's like this you

You fall and you crawl and you break

and you take what you get and you turn it into honesty

promise me I'm never gonna find you flaking

no no no

"Just Like A Pill" - Pink

I'm lyin' here on the floor where you left me

I think I took too much

I'm crying here, what have you done?

I thought it would be fun

I can't stay on your life support, there's a

shortage in the switch,

I can't stay on your morphine, cuz its making me

itch

I said I tried to call the nurse again but shes

being a little bitch,

I think I'll get outta here, where I can

Run just as fast as I can

To the middle of nowhere

To the middle of my frustrated fears

And I swear you're just like a pill

Instead of makin' me better, you keep makin' me

ill

You keep makin' me ill

I haven't moved from the spot where you left me

This must be a bad trip

All of the other pills, they were different

Maybe I should get some help

I can't stay on your life support, there's a

shortage in the switch,

I can't stay on your morphine, cuz its making me

itch

I said I tried to call the nurse again but shes

being a little bitch,

I think I'll get outta here, where I can

Run just as fast as I can

To the middle of nowhere

To the middle of my frustrated fears

And I swear you're just like a pill

Instead of makin' me better, you keep makin' me

ill

You keep makin' me ill

Run just as fast as I can

To the middle of nowhere

To the middle of my frustrated fears

And I swear you're just like a pill

Instead of makin' me better, you keep makin' me

ill

You keep makin' me ill

I can't stay on your life support, there's a

shortage in the switch,

I can't stay on your morphine, cuz its making me

itch

I said I tried to call the nurse again but shes

being a little bitch,

I think I'll get outta here, where I can

Run just as fast as I can

To the middle of nowhere

To the middle of my frustrated fears

And I swear you're just like a pill

Instead of makin' me better, you keep makin' me

ill

You keep makin' me ill

"Numb" - Pink

No sleep, no sex for you from your ex-girlfriend

I was too deep, I can't let you go and just jump

in

At times I would push my feelings aside to let

you feel

I'm novicane I'm numb and nothing's real

Like the coldest winter, I am frozen from you

I was weak before now you made me so numb

I can't feel much for you anymore

I gave you my all, my baby

I'm numb, numb, numb

But the tears were silent inside you see

But the tears were silent inside you see

I laid there quiet, watched you have your way

with me

I might have cried, the tears were silent inside

you see

You called me names, made me feel like I was dumb

I didn't feel a thing and now I'm gone, gone,

gone

Like a battered child I got used to your pain

But you know its cuz

I was weak before now you made me so numb

I can't feel much for you anymore

I gave you my all, my baby

I'm numb, numb, numb

I was weak before now you made me so numb

I can't feel much for you anymore

I gave you my all, my baby

I'm numb, numb, numb

Don't feel a thing, don't feel the pain

Numb, numb, numb

Said

I was weak before now you made me so numb

I can't feel much for you anymore

I gave you my all, my baby

I'm numb, numb, numb

I was weak for

Said now I'm numb, numb, numb

No, no, no, no

I really like Ani DiFranco's music.  Lately, I've been really angry and her song "Outta Me Onto You"  is really great for that.  She's just screaming "no, no, no, no!" during parts of it & it makes me feel powerful.  Fiona Apple is great when I'm angry.  And so is Nine Inch Nails "Terrible Lie" & "Head like a hole."

((((((((((((((brothers and sisters)))))))))))))))))))

This is the latest song that has touched my heart and brought comfort. I turned to Jesus Christ about 8 months after I was raped.  I knew I needed Him.  Deep down I just knew He was my only way out. That was 3 and 1/2 years ago and it's been a long journey.  There have been many times

when I have fought.  I have wondered, "why".  I have yelled at Him.  I have litterally screamed.  I have cried rivers to Him.  Hurled accusing words at Him.  Run back to Him, only to want to leave again.  And it's okay.  He always stays right beside me.  Faithfully.  He will never ask me "why didn't you fight" He will never look at me as if I'm dirty.  He will never say He doesn't understand... I may be angry, I may not want Him, but one thing for sure.  He has never left me. He will never leave me.  He's the one who's held me close in my coldest, loneliest nights.  He has whispered sweet words of peace and wiped away my tears.  He is the only hope I have of ever feeling pure and clean again.  Oh, please don't think that I'm preaching or pushing anything on you. That's the last thing I want to do.  I hurt for you, as I know you hurt for me.  My hope and prayer is that we will all come to the place where the pain will stop. God has sent some of the most wonderful people my way.  People who have brought comfort, prayer and kindness.  This faith I have has been strong, it has been weak, but I am slowly healing.  I am learning to forgive my attacker, (i may not be there yet, but it's okay).. but most importantly I am learning how to love and forgive myself.  So many times we end up hating ourselves for something we had nothing to blame for....And I am learning to let Jesus take my shame. To take it away.  I don't want it!   He died on the cross to take it away.  All I have to do is let Him. Easier said than done, I know... I have only this hope to offer, and sweet sisters and brothers, this is from the bottom of my heart.  Please read these lyrics.  I'm sorry if I rambled.  Thank you for listening.

Mark Schultz - Back in His Arms Again

From the album Song Cinema

I see it in your eyes

The pain you keep inside

It's slowly tearing you apart

Though you've run away

Reminded day by day

You've stumbled and you've fallen

Still He's calling

I believe that He loves you where you are

I believe that you've seen the hands of God

I believe that you'll know it when

You're back in His arms again

I believe that He never let you go

I believe that He's wanting you to know

I believe that He'll lead you 'til you're back in His arms again

Glad I found you here

'Cause in between the tears

Something in your eyes shows hope

And I stand before you now

As one that knows about

Coming to Him open and broken

And I know that He's callin'

He's callin' you Home

One life, one love, one way Home

And when you rise and when you fall

He will see you through it all

He is waiting, you are called, back in His arms again.

The Night of Her Insistence

She finally understood it, the sadness of her life

The weight of her emotion, the gravity of light

She looked into the back of her mind

To see where she had been

But all she saw was a secret

And she could not look in...

All those years of waiting

All those years of trying too hard

All those years of failing

Pushed her down too far

She wearies of the geographies

That tell her who she is

She chokes on her philosophies

And all that she has been...

When she finally put her foot down

She put her fears down too

She left them by the back door

And through the night she flew

Away from her emotions

Away from the tricks of time

Away from cruel devotions

She left them all behind...

It was the night of her insistence

It was the day she found her will

It was the dream she’d always harboured

And harbours still

It was the night of her configuration

All the pieces finally there

And in that light of transformation

She...

Finally understood it

The sadness of her life

The weight of her emotion

The gravity of light

She looked beyond the back of her mind

To see where she had been

And there she saw the secret

And now she looked in.

-The Wyrd Sisters

- Me and a Gun - Tori Amos

(I think we all know the lyrics)

& just about anything else Tori Amos

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

- By Myself - Linkin Park

What do I do to ignore them behind me?

Do I follow my instincts blindly?

Do I hide my pride / from these bad dreams

And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?

Do I / sit here and try to stand it?

Or do I / try to catch them red - handed?

Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness,

Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?

Because I can’t hold on / when I’m stretched so thin

I make the right moves but I’m lost within

I put on my daily façade but then

I just end up getting hurt again

by myself [myself]

I ask why, but in my mind

I find I can’t rely on myself

[myself]

I ask why, but in my mind

I find I can’t rely on myself

I can’t hold on

To what I want when I’m stretched so thin

It’s all too much to take in

I can’t hold on

To anything watching everything spin

With thoughts of failure sinking in

If I

Turn my back I’m defenseless

And to go blindly seems senseless

If I hide my pride and let it all go on / then they’ll

Take from me ‘till everything is gone

If I let them go I’ll be outdone

But if I try to catch them I’ll be outrun

If I’m killed by the questions like a cancer

Then I’ll be buried in the silence of the answer

[by myself]

[myself]

I ask why, but in my mind

I find I can’t rely on myself

[myself]

I ask why, but in my mind

I find I can’t rely on myself

I can’t hold on

To what I want when I’m stretched so thin

It’s all too much to take in

I can’t hold on

To anything watching everything spin

With thoughts of failure sinking in

How do you think / I’ve lost so much

I’m so afraid / I’m out of touch

How do you expect / I will know what to do

When all I know / Is what you tell me to

Don’t you (know)

I can’t tell you how to make it (go)

No matter what I do, how hard I (try)

I can’t seem to convince myself (why)

I’m stuck on the outside

I can’t hold on

To what I want when I’m stretched so thin

It’s all too much to take in

I can’t hold on

To anything watching everything spin

With thoughts of failure sinking in

I can’t hold on

To what I want when I’m stretched so thin

It’s all too much to take in

I can’t hold on

To anything watching everything spin

With thoughts of failure sinking...

- Jumper - Third Eye Blind

I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,

You could cut ties with all the lies, that you've been living in,

And if you do not want to see me again, I would understand.

I would understand,

The angry boy, a bit too insane,

Icing over a secret pain,

You know you don't belong,

You're the first to fight, You're way too loud,

You're the flash of light, On a burial shroud,

I know something's wrong,

Well everyone I know has got a reason, To say, put the past away,

I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,

You could cut ties with all the lies, That you've been living in,

And if you do not want to see me again, I would understand,

I would understand.

Well he's on the table, And he's gone to code,

And I do not think anyone knows,

What they are doing here,

And your friends have left, You've been dismissed,

I never thought it would come to this, And I, I want you to know,

Everyone's got to face down the demons,

Maybe today, We can put the past away,

I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,

You could cut ties with all the lies, that you've been living in,

And if you do not want to see me again, I would understand,

I would understand,

I would understand...

Can you put the past away, I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,

I would understand...

- Falls Apart - Sugar Ray

She falls apart by herself

No ones there to talk or understand

Feels sustained, dries here eyes

Finds herself, opens the door inside

People see right through you

Everyone who knew you well

Falls apart, might as well

Day is long and nothing is wasteful

Runaway runaway (runaway runaway)

Hold, hold you but your going away

Runaway runaway (runaway runaway)

(Want) Hold (Want) you tomorrow but your leaving today

You walk along by yourself

There's no sound, nothing is changing

Been gone away, left you there

Emptiness is nothing you can't share

All those words that hurt you

More than you would let it show

Comes apart, by yourself

All is well and everything is wasted

Runaway runaway (runaway runaway)

(Want) Hold (Want) hold you but your going away

Runaway runaway (runaway runaway)

(Want) Hold (Want) you tomorrow but your leaving today

Sometimes we'll feel around and this dance instead can't be down

All the sound of me on my own

Any sound of me again it's time away surround around a friend

I know where I know where no where to runaway

She falls apart, no one there

Hold her hand, it seems to disappear

Falls apart, might as well

Day is long and nothing is wasted

Runaway runaway (runaway runaway)

(Want) Hold (Want) hold you but your going away

Runaway runaway (runaway runaway)

(Want) Hold (Want) you tomorrow but your leaving today

Runaway Runaway

Hold (Want) hold you (Want) but your going away

But your leaving today, but your leaving today

- Mary Jane - Alanis Morrisette

What's the matter Mary Jane, you had a hard day

As you place the don't disturb sign on the door

You lost your place in line again, what a pity

You never seem to want to dance anymore

It's a long way down

On this roller coaster

The last chance streetcar

Went off the track

And you're on it

I hear you're counting sheep again Mary Jane

What's the point of tryin' to dream anymore

I hear you're losing weight again Mary Jane

Do you ever wonder who you're losing it for

Well it's full speed baby

In the wrong direction

There's a few more bruises

If that's the way

You insist on heading

Please be honest Mary Jane

Are you happy

Please don't censor your tears

You're the sweet crusader

And you're on your way

You're the last great innocent

And that's why I love you

So take this moment Mary Jane and be selfish

Worry not about the cars that go by

All that matters Mary Jane is your freedom

Keep warm my dear, keep dry

Tell me

Tell me

What's the matter Mary Jane...

I love The Corrs too Caroline, and I actually prefer their version of Everybody Hurts.  Its beautiful.:)

Im listening to it now on my PC!

This is another song that I love

now, A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton.  It makes me cry when I listen to it though, it reminds me of how much I miss my Boyf when he's not here;

Making my way down town

Walking fast

Faces pass

And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead

Just making my way

Making a way

Through the crowd

And I need you

And I miss you

And now I wonder

If I could fall

Into the sky

Do you think time

Would pass me by

Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles

If I could just see you... tonight

It's always times like these

When I think of you

And I wonder

If you ever think of me

Cause everything's so wrong

And I don't belong

Living in

Your precious memory

Cause I need you

And I miss you

And now I wonder

If I could fall

Into the sky

Do you think time

Would pass me by,oh

Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles

If I could just see you... tonight

And I, I don't wanna let you know

I, I drown in your memory

I, I don't wanna let this go

I, I've fallen...

Making my way down town

Walking fast

Faces pass

And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead

Making my way

Making a way

Through the crowd

And I still need you

And I still miss you

And now I wonder

If I could fall into the sky

Do you think time, would pass us by

Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles

If I could just see you...

If I could fall into the sky

Do you think time would pass me by

Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles

If I could just see you...

If I could just hold you... tonight

And another by Vanessa Carlton, Paradise.  I think these lyrics are very apt for the situation that most of us here are in;

once upon a year gone by

she saw herself give in

every time she closed her eyes

she saw what could have been

well nothing hurts and nothing bleeds

when covers tucked in tight

funny when the bottom drops

how she forgets to fight... to fight

and it's one more day in paradise

one more day in paradise

as darkness quickly steals the light

that shined within her eyes

she slowly swallows all her fear

and soothes her mind with lies

well all she wants and all she needs

are reasons to survive

a day in which the sun will take

her artificial light... her light

and it's one more day in paradise

one more day in paradise

it's one more day in paradise

one last chance to feel alright... alright

don't pretend to hold it in just let it out

don't pretend to hold it in just push it out

don't you try to hold it in just let it out and

don't you try to hold it in you hold it in

[chorus]

once upon a year gone by

she saw herself give in

every time she closed her eyes

she saw what could have been

Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous by Good Charlotte

Always see it on TV, I read it in the magazines

Celebrities who want sympathy

All they do is piss and moan

Inside the Rollin Stone

Talkin about how hard life can be

I'd like to see them spend a week

Livin' life out on the street

I don't think they would survive

They could spend a day or two

Walking in someone elses shoes

I think they'd stumble and they'd fall (they would fall)

Lifestyles of the rich and the famous

They're always complainin'

Always complainin'

If money is such a problem

Well they got mansions

Think we should rob them

Did you know when you are famous

You could kill your wife

And there's no such thing as 25-to-Life

As long as you got the cash to pay for kokrin

Did you know if you were caught and you were smokin' crack

Mcdonals wouldnt even wanna take ya back

You could always run for mayor of D.C.

I'd like to see them spend a week

Livin' life out on the street

I don't think they would survive

They could spend a day or two

Walking in someone elses shoes

I think they'd stumble and they'd fall (they would fall

Lifestyles of the rich and the famous

They're always complainin'

Always complainin'

If money is such a problem

Well they got mansions

Think we should rob them

LLifestyles of the rich and the famous

They're always complainin'

Always complainin'

If money is such a problem

we got so many problems

think i could solve them

Lifestyles of the rich and the famous

we'll take the clothes, cash, cars and homes just stop complanin

Lifestyles of the rich and the famous (3x)

"Bridge Over Troubled Water ", by  Paul Simon

When you're weary, feelin' small,

When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all.

I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough,

And friends just can't be found.

Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down,

Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down.

When you're down and out, when you're on the street,

When evening falls so hard, I will comfort you.

I'll take your part,

Oh, when darkness comes, and pain is all around.

Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down,

Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down.

Sail on silver girl, sail on by,

Your time has come to shine, all your dreams are on their way.

See how they shine,

Oh, if you need a friend, I'm sailing right behind.

Like a bridge over troubled water, I will ease your mind,

Like a bridge over troubled water, I will ease your mind

Recorded by Simon and Garfunkel, on "Bridge over Troubled Waters"

and "The Concert In Central Park".

DAMAGED

Dreaming comes so easily

'Cause it's all that I've ever know

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

A 'feel good' song - when I hear it I think of Pandy's!

Lighthouse Family - High

When you're close to tears remember

Someday it'll all be over

One day we're gonna get so high.

Though it's darker than December

What's ahead is a different colour

One day we're gonna get so high.

And at the end of the day, remember the days

When we were close to the end

And wonder how we made it through the night

At the end of the day,

Remember the way

We stayed so close to the end

We'll remember it was me and you

Cause we are gonna be

Forever, you and me

You will

Always keep it flying high in the sky

Of love

Don't you think it's time you started

Doing what we always wanted

One day we're gonna get so high.

Cause even the impossible

Is easy when we got each other

One day we're gonna get so high.

And at the end of the day, remember the days

When we were close to the end

And wonder how we made it through the night

At the end of the day

Remember the way

We stayed so close to the end

We'll remember it was me and you

Cause we are gonna be

Forever, you and me

You will

Always keep it flying high in the sky

Of love

So many great songs listed here!

"Naked" - Avril Lavigne

I wake up in the morning

Put on my face

The one that's gonna get me

Through another day

Doesn't really matter

How I feel inside

'Cause life is like a game sometimes

But then you came around me

The walls just disappeared

Nothing to surround me

And keep me from my fears

I'm unprotected

See how I've opened up

Oh, you've made me trust

Because I've never felt like this before

I'm naked

Around you

Does it show?

You see right through me

And I can't hide

I'm naked

Around you

And it feels so right

I'm trying to remember

Why I was afraid

To be myself and let the

Covers fall away

I guess I never had someone like you

To help me, to help me fit

In my skin

I never felt like this before

I'm naked

Around you

Does it show?

You see right through me

And I can't hide

I'm naked

Around you

And it feels so right

I'm naked

Oh oh yeah

Does it show?

Yeah, I'm naked

Oh oh, yeah yeah

I'm so naked around you

And I can't hide

You're gonna (you're gonna) see right through, baby

you're gonna see right through,

i'm so naked around you,

and i can't hide,

you're gonna see right through, baby

One Day I'll Fly Away has been really healing:

I follow the night

Can't stand the light

When will I begin to live again?

One day I'll fly away

Leave all this to yesterday

What more could your love do for me

When will love be through with me

Why live life from dream to dream

I dread the day when dreaming ends

One day I'll fly away

Leave all this to yesterday

I dread the day when dreaming ends

One day I'll fly away

Fly fly away

Why live life from dream to dream

Well as i first had no time to write down flinch i do it now:

Flinch - Alanis Morissette

What's it been over a decade?

It still smarts like it was four minutes ago

We only influenced each other totally

We only bruised each other even more so

What are you my blood? You touch me like you are my blood

What are you my dad? You affect me like you are my dad

How long can a girl be shackled to you

How long before my dignity is reclaimed

How long can a girl stay haunted by you

Soon I'll grow up and I won't even flinch at your name

Soon I'll grow up and I won't even flinch at your name

Where've you been? I heard you moved to my city

My brother saw you somewhere downtown

I'd be paralyzed if I ran into you

My tongue would seize up if we were to meet again

What are you my god? You touch me like you are my god

What are you my twin? You affect me like you are my twin

How long can a girl be tortured by you?

How long before my dignity is reclaimed

And how long can a girl be haunted by you

Soon I'll grow up and I won't even flinch at your name

Soon I'll grow up and I won't even flinch at your name

So here I am one room away from where I know you're standing

A well-intentioned man told me you just walked in

This man knows not of how this information has affected me

But he knows the colour of the car I just drove away in

What are you my kin? You touch me like you are my kin

What are you my air? You affect me like you are my air

Precious Illusions - Alanis Morissette

you'll rescue me right? in the exact same way they never did..

I'll be happy right? when your healing powers kick in

you'll complete me right? then my life can finally begin

I'll be worthy right? only when you realize the gem I am?

but this won't work now the way it once did

and I won't keep it up even though I would love to

once I know who I'm not then  I'll know who I am

but I know I won't keep on playing the victim

these precious illusions in my head did not let me down when I was defenseless

and parting with them is like parting with invisible best friends

this ring will me yet as will you knight in shining armor

this pill will help me yet as will these boys gone through like water

but this won't work as well as the way it once did

cuz I want to decide between survival and bliss

and though I know who I'm not I still don't know who I am

but I know I won't keep on playing the victim

these precious illusions in my head did not let me down when I was a kid

and parting with them is like parting with a childhood best friend

I've spent so long firmly looking outside me

I've spent so much time living in survival mode

That I Would Be Good - Alanis Morissette

that I would be good even if i did nothing

that I would be good even if i got the thumbs down

that I would be good if I got and stayed sick

that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds

that i would be fine even even if I went bankrupt

that i would be good if I lost my hair and my youth

that i would be great if I was no longer queen

that i would be grand if i was not all knowing

that i would be loved even when i numb myself

that i would be good even when i am overwhelmed

that i would be loved even when i was fuming

that i would be good even if i was clingy

that i would be good even if i lost sanity

that i would be good

whether with or without you

I have always loved this song and it makes me think of all of you.

Just the Way You Are by Billy Joel

Don't go changing, to try and please me

                   You never let me down before

                   Don't imagine you're too familiar

                   And I don't see you anymore

                   I wouldn't leave you in times of trouble

                   We never could have come this far

                   I took the good times, I'll take the bad times

                   I'll take you just the way you are

                   Don't go trying some new fashion

                   Don't change the color of your hair

                   You always have my unspoken passion

                   Although I might not seem to care

                   I don't want clever conversation

                   I never want to work that hard

                   I just want someone that I can talk to

                   I want you just the way you are.

                   I need to know that you will always be

                   The same old someone that I knew

                   What will it take till you believe in me

                   The way that I believe in you.

                   I said I love you and that's forever

                   And this I promise from the heart

                   I could not love you any better

                   I love you just the way you are.
