DO YOU STILL BELIEVE by Elsa Raven

I had a dream that I could fly

I can feel each moment as time goes by

We'd never be too far away,

You would always be here, I heard you say

I never thought

Thought that it would be our last goodbye

(our last goodbye.)

I still can dream

That one day love will fall out from the sky

Do you still remember all the time that has gone by?

(do you believe?)

Do you still believe that love can fall out from the sky?

If from where you're standing, you can see the sky above

I'll be waiting for you, if you still believe in love

(do you still believe?)

Find a way to bring back yesterday

Find a way to love

I hope we stay

When tomorrow becomes today

Love will find a way

I'll be waiting for you, in my heart you are the one

If I cannot find you, I will look up to the sun

(do you believe, do you believe?)

If from where you're standing, you can see the sky above

I'll be waiting for you, if you still believe in love

Do you believe?

Do you believe?

Do you still remember all the time that has gone by?

Do you still believe that love can fall out from the sky?

If from where you're standing, you can see the sky above

(do you believe?)

I'll be waiting for you, if you still believe in love

Do you believe?

here are two songs

"Life Goes On"  LeAnn Rimes

Life goes on, life goes on

Life goes on, life goes on

You sucked me in

And played my mind

Just like a toy

You were crank and wind

Baby I would give till you wore it out

You left me lyin' in a pool of doubt

And you're still thinkin' you're the Daddy Mac

You should've known better but you didn't

And I can't go back

Oh life goes on

And it's only gonna make me strong

It's a fact, once you get on board

Say good-bye cause you can't go back

Oh it's a fight, and I really wanna get it right

Where I'm at, is my life before me

And this feelin' that I can go back

Life goes on  

Wish I knew then

What I know now

You held all the cards

And sold me out

Baby shame on you, if you fool me once

Shame on me if you fool me twice

You've been a pretty hard case to crack

Should've known better but I didn't

And I can't go back

Oh life goes on

And it's only gonna make me strong

It's a fact, once you get on board

Say good-bye cause you can't go back

Oh it's a fight, and I really wanna get it right

Where I'm at, is my life before me

And this feelin' that I can go back

Life goes on

Na, na, na, na, na

Life goes on

Na, Na, Na, Na,

It made me strong

Oh yeah, got this feeling that I can't go back

Life goes on, life goes on, and it's only gonna me strong

Life goes on, life goes on, and on and on

shame on you, if you fool me once

Shame on me if you fool me twice

You've been a pretty hard case to crack

Should've known better but I didn't

And I can't go back

Na, na, na, na, na

Life goes on

Na, Na, Na, Na

It made me strong

Oh yeah

Gotta feelin' that I can't go back

No I can't go back

Oh yeah

I've gotta go now

I'm moving on

No turning back

'Cause you made me strong

i didnt really realize this song would have such an impact on me when we sang it for chours last sept. it was right after my r**e and i didnt want to do a memoral service for a friend but after awhile of reharseing i realized what it actually ment to me at that time.

Artist: Bill Withers

 

Song: Lean On Me

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain

We all have sorrow

But if we are wise

We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong

And I'll be your friend

I'll help you carry on

For it won't be long

'Til I'm gonna need

Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride

If I have things you need to borrow

For no one can fill those of your needs

That you don't let show

Lean on me, when you're not strong

And I'll be your friend

I'll help you carry on

For it won't be long

'Til I'm gonna need

Somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear

That you can't carry

I'm right up the road

I'll share your load

If you just call me

So just call on me brother, when you need a hand

We all need somebody to lean on

I just might have a problem that you'd understand

We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me when you're not strong

And I'll be your friend

I'll help you carry on

For it won't be long

Till I'm gonna need

Somebody to lean on

Lean on me…

Cry - Faith Hill

If I had just one tear running down your cheek

Maybe I could cope maybe I'd get some sleep

If I had just one moment at your expense

Maybe all my misery would be well spent Could you cry a little

Lie just a little

Pretend that you're feeling a little more pain

I gave now I'm wanting

Something in return

So cry just a little for me

If your love could be caged, honey. I would hold the key

And conceal it underneath that pile of lies you handed me

And you'd hunt and those lies

They'd be all you'd ever find

And that'd be all you'd have to know

For me to be fine

And you'd cry a little

You'd die just a little

And baby I would feel just a little less pain

I gave now from wanting

Something in return

So cry just a little for me

Give it up baby

A whimper would be fine

Some kind of clue that

You're doing time

Some kind of heartache

Honey give it a try

I don't want pity

I just want what is mine

Here are some songs that I related very strongly to:

H. by Tool

What's coming through is alive. What's holding up is a mirror. But what's singing songs is a snake looking to turn this piss to wine. They're both totally void of hate, but killing me just the same. The snake behind me hisses what my damage could have been. My blood before me begs me: open up my heart again. And I feel this coming over like a storm again. considerately. Venomous voice, tempts me, drains me, bleeds me, leaves me cracked and empty. Drags me down like some sweet gravity. The snake behind me hisses what my damage could have been. My blood before me begs me open up my heart again. And I feel this coming over like a storm again. I am too connected to you to slip away, to fade away. Days away I still feel you touching me, changing me, and considerately killing me. Without the skin, beneath the storm, under these tears the walls came down. And the snake is drowned and as I look in his eyes, my fear begins to fade recalling all of those times. I could have cried then. I should have cried then. And as the walls come down and as I look in your eyes my fear begins to fade recalling all of the times I have died and will die. It's all right. I don't mind. I am too connected to you to slip away, to fade away. Days away I still feel you touching me, changing me, and considerately killing me.

FortySix n Two by Tool

My shadow's Shedding skin and I've been picking scabs again. I'm down digging through my old muscles looking for a clue. I've been crawling on my belly clearing out what could've been. I've been wallowing in my own confused and insecure delusions for a piece to cross me over or a word to guide me in. I wanna feel the changes coming down. I wanna know what I've been hiding in my shadow. Change is coming through my shadow. My shadow's shedding skin I've been picking my scabs again. I've been crawling on my belly clearing out what could've been I've been wallowing in my own chaotic and insecure delusions. I wanna feel the change consume me, feel the outside turning in. I wanna feel the metamorphosis and cleansing I've endured within my shadow. Change is coming. Now is my time. Listen to my muscle memory. Contemplate what I've been clinging to. Forty-six and two ahead of me. I choose to live and to grow, take and give and to move, learn and love and to cry, kill and die and to be paranoid and to lie, hate and fear and to do what it takes to move through. I choose to live and to lie, kill and give and to die, learn and love and to do what it takes to step through. See my shadow changing, stretching up and over me soften this old armor. hoping I can clear the way by stepping through my shadow, coming out the other side. Step into the shadow. Forty six and two are just ahead of me.

This song I can relate to in part... beyond it, a) its more male-related, b)i think it turns into the idea of spawning another abuser through abuse, and it leaves relevance to me, but not to issues of child abuse. The despair and lack of control even over oneslef is a signature for many of us. The damage of child abuse here is wry and paradoxically, disturbingly heart-tearing.

Prison Sex by Tool

It took so long to remember just what happened. I was so young and vestal then, you know it hurt me, but I'm breathing so I guess I'm still alive even if signs seem to tell me otherwise. I've got my hands bound, my head down, my eyes closed, and my throat wide open. Do unto others what has been done to you. I'm treading water, I need to sleep a while. My lamb and martyr, you look so precious. Won't you come a bit closer, close enough so I can smell you. I need you to feel this, I can't stand to burn too long. Released in this sodomy. For one sweet moment I am whole. Do unto you now what has been done to me. You're breathing so I guess you're still alive even if signs seem to tell me otherwise. Won't you come just a bit closer, close enough so I can smell you. I need you to feel this. I need this to make me whole. There's release in this sodomy. For I am your witness that blood and flesh can be trusted. And only this one holy medium brings me piece of mind. Got your hands bound, your head down, your eyes closed. You look so precious now. I have found some kind of temporary sanity in this shit blood and cum on my hands. I've come round full circle. My lamb and martyr, this will be over soon. You look so precious.

Rose by A Perfect Circle

Don't disturb

The beast

The tempermental goat

The snail while he's feeding on

the Rose

Stay frozen, compromising

What I will

I am

Bend around

The wind silently

thrown about

Again I'm treading so

Soft and lightly

Compromising my will

I am

I am

I will

So no longer

Will I

Lay down

Play dead

Play your doe

in the headlights locked down

and terrified

Your deer in the headlights

shot down and horrified when

Push comes to pull comes to shove

Comes to step around this

Self-destructing dance that never

would've ended till I

Rose,

I roared aloud here

I will

I am.

I am

I will

So no longer

Will I

Lay down

Lay dead

Play this

Kneel down

Gun-shy Martyr

Pitiful

I rose, I roared

I will

I am

This song is relatively new but I love listening to it in my car, blasting, driving...its filled with pain and when i hear him venting, it helps me release some of my anger

Its a song called "Whole" by Flaw

Flaw

Whole

So Maybe I am Bound By Fate

A Problematic Scarring Induced By Hate

It Never Seems To All Pan Out

Is That What All This Teaching Is Needed To Scout

You Seemed To Have A Bad Effect

Your Rules And Contradictions I would Neglect

Though Not My Fault You Made Me Feel

Like My Own Education Wasnt Truly Real

Then You Came Right In Tearing Out My Soul

How Could All This Loss Be Your Only Goal

I`m Left Standing Here Desperate In The Cold

Since You Took Your Life Mine Has not Been Whole

So There I Stood A Scolded Child

The Reasons Never Questioned My Pains Been Filed

Inside This Place That Makes Me Feel

I learned Life Is Unfair And That Is Very Real

[Chorus]

While You Try To Overcome The Lesson

Makeing The most Of Those Questions That Just

Keeps Me Guessing

I`m Looking Longer, Harder, Further Than I Ever Have

Solitude Breaking Me Down You Always Seemed Glad

To Put Me down And Stick Me In That little Pit

Personal Growth As A child That Mattered Not A Bit

Then I Became The Person That You Hated Most

Disrespecting The Father, Son, And Holy Ghost

A Small Example Of What The Things You`ve Done To Me

Have Changed In My Life And Changed The Things

I`ll Never Be

I`ll Never Be

Tempestously emotional: Grieg Piano Concerto or the Elgar Cello Concerto

I'm alive By: Heather Nova   ****T****

Your hands were covered in paint

The pillow smothered my cry

You were half charmer half snake

I lived in dreamtime

But I'm alive; I survived you

And the bitter taste, the years I wasted

All the hate is gone

'Cause I'm Alive

Some nights I'd sleep in the car

Just to escape you

You drove devotion too far

No-one could save you

But I'm alive; I survived you

And the bitter taste, the years I wasted

All the hate is gone

'Cause I'm Alive

I still have visions of you

I still have nights to get through

And when the trust isn't true

I have these visions of you, visions of you

But I'm alive; I survived you

And the bitter taste, the years I wasted

All the hate is gone cause I'm alive

Ride on and fade away

There's nothing more to say

Ride on and fade away

There's nothing more to say

i listen to mostly things like system of a down because they scream and yell. It helps get the anger out.

"Aerials"

Life is a waterfall

we're one in the river

and one again after the fall

swimming through the void

we hear the word

we lose ourselves

but we find it all....

cause we are the ones that want to play

always want to go

but you never want to stay

and we are the ones that want to choose

always want to play

but you never want to lose

aerials, in the sky

when you lose small mind

you free your life

life is a waterfall

we drink from the river

then we turn around and put up our walls

swimming through the void

we hear the word

we lose ourselves

but we find it all...

cause we are the ones that want to play

always want to go

but you never want to stay

and we are the ones that want to choose

always want to play

but you never want to lose

aerials, in the sky

when you lose small mind

you free your life

aerials, so up high

when you free your eyes eternal prize

aerials, in the sky

when you lose small mind

you free your life

aerials, so up high

when you free your eyes eternal prize

SLUT - by Daniella's Daze

I bet you thought you had unlimited access to my body and my soul

But things have changed

Now I am in control

Cos after two years, seven months and fourteen days

I thought it was time

To put you in my place

I'm sorry, so sorry

To have to tie your hands behind your back

But you were no good in the sack

I'm sorry, so sorry

For putting up with those stupid lies

For the blindfold over your eyes

Just one more thing

Before I nail the coffin shut

Don't call me slut

Don't call me slut

Just one more thing

Before I nail the coffin shut

Don't call me slut

Don't call me slut, slut

You should've never called me slut

No more putting up with those phony alibis

No more salty tears in my beautiful blue eyes

No more cheap cologne on your body

Ooh, I hate that smell

As far as I'm concerned

You can go straight to ####

I'm sorry, so sorry

I hope you're comfortable my dear

And don't you cry - I hate those tears

I'm sorry, so sorry

To see you lying there so still

To have to do this against your will

Just one more thing

Before I nail the coffin shut

Don't call me slut

Don't call me slut

Just one more thing

Before I nail the coffin shut

Don't call me slut

Don't call me slut, slut

You should've never called me slut...

Now say goodbye you little fuck

Hmm... nifty topic...

Music has definitely helped in healing, even before I was ready to heal, but for me there aren't always lyrics.  I have a few guitars (and basses and a piano and a few other keyboards and whatnot) lying around, and sometimes the most wonderful thing in the world was to pick up and play.  You won't find me at the top of any chart, or on any major album.  I'm not particularily good as a musician, but I love to play, alone or with others.

Sometimes the music reaches me more than the lyrics... the guitar solo on Pink Floyd's 'Comfortably Numb', the entire nonvocal part of Supertramp's "Fool's Overture", the bass line to Tori Amos's 'Sugar' or 'Past the Mission'.  I can't tell you how many others...  Lightnin' Hopkins on an ols scratchy recording, Duke Ellington...

Peter Gabriel's 'Here Comes The Flood'..."When the Flood comes you have no home, you have no warmth.  In the thunder crash you're 1000 miles within a flash- don't be afraid to cry at what you see: The act is gone, there's only you and me.  And if we wake before the dawn, we'll use up who we used to be... [chorus] Lord, here comes the flood.  We'll say goodbye to flesh and blood.  If again the seas are shining in eddies still alive, it'll be those who give their islands who survive.  Drink up, dreamers, you're running dry..."

Or his 'Salsbury Hill'  "...I was feeling part of the scenery.  I just walked right out of the machinery, my heart going boom boom boom..."

Most any blues tune helps... it's an attitude thing- you know, however bad it is, even if it gets worse, it's all gonna work out in the end.

Not that I need to quote it here- most if not all of you probably know the lyrics to Tori Amos' 'Silent All These Years' by heart.  "...years go by will I still be waiting for somebody else to understand?"  Had a tremendous impact on me.  Somebody else DID understand!  And Danielle LoPresti's "Say IT!" is also very powerful.  (but triggery if you look her up- she pulls no punches)

Music is a lot like painting a picture, sounds for color and emotion for texture.  It's a mirror, a comfort, an inspiration, a shared tear, support, and a channel for all the bad energy, which through creation turns good.

Neil Young's 'Human Highway'

I came down from the misty mountains

I got lost on the Human Highway

Take my head refreshing fountain

take my eyes from what they've seen

Take my hand and change my mind...

How could people get so unkind?

I came down from the crooked mansion

I went looking for the DJ's daughter

Some folks say my name is on the line

Now my name is on the line

How could people get so unkind?

repeat first verse...

a couple of songs by my favorite, tom waits...

hold on

they hung a sign up in our town

'if you live it up you won't

live it down'

so, she left monte rio, son

just like a bullet leaves a gun

with charcoal eyes and monroe hips

she went and took that california trip

well, the moon was gold, her

hair like wind

she said don't look back just

come on jim

(chorus)

oh you got to

hold on, hold on

you got to hold on

take my hand, i'm standing right here

you gotta hold on

well, he gave her a dimestore watch

and a ring made from a spoon

everyone's looking for someone to blame

but you share my bed, you share my name

well, go ahead and call the cops

you don't meet nice girls in coffee shops

she said baby, i still love you

sometimes there's nothin left to do

oh you got to

hold on, hold on

you got to hold on

take my hand, i'm standing right here, you go to

just hold on

well god bless your crooked little heart

st. louis got the best of you

i miss your broken-china voice

how i wish you were still

here with me

well, you build it up, you wreck it down

you burn your mansion to the ground

when there's nothing left to keep you here, when

you're falling behind in this

big blue world

oh you got to

hold on, hold on

you got to hold on

take my hand, i'm standing right here

you gotta hold on

down by the riverside motel,

it's 10 below and falling

by a 99 cent store she closed her eyes

and started swaying

but it's so hard to dance that way

when it's cold and there's no music

well your old hometown is so far away

but, inside your head there's a record

that's playing, a song called

hold on, hold on

you got to hold on

take my hand, i'm standing right here

and just hold on

oh you got to

hold on, hold on

you got to hold on

take my hand, i'm standing right here

you gotta hold on

georgia lee

(about a local tragedy, a 12 year old murdered)

cold was the night, hard was the ground

they found her in a small grove of trees

lonesome was the place where georgia was

found.  she's too young to be out

on the street

why wasn't god watching?

why wasn't god listening?

why wasn't god there for

georgia lee?

ida said she couldn't keep georgia

from dropping out of school

i was doing the best that i could

but she kept runnin away from this world

these children are so hard to raise good

why wasn't god watching?

why wasn't god listening?

why wasn't god there for

georgia lee?

close your eyes and count to ten

i will go and hide but then

be sure to find me.  i want you to find me

and we'll play all over

we will play all over again

theres a toad in the witch grass

there's a crow in the corn

wild flowers on a cross by the road

and somewhere a baby is crying

for her mom

as the hills turn from green back

to gold

why wasn't god watching?

why wasn't god listening?

why wasn't god there for

georgia lee?

a little rain

the ice man's mule is parked

outside the bar

where a man with missing fingers

plays a strange guitar

and a german dwarf

dances with the butcher's son

and a little rain never hurt noone

and a little rain never hurt noone

they're dancing on the roof

and the ceiling's coming down

i sleep with my shovel and my leather gloves

a little trouble makes it worth the going

and a little rain never hurt noone

the world is round

and so i'll go around

you must risk something that matters

my hands are strong

i'll take any man here

if it's worth the going

it's worth the ride

she was 15 years old

and she'd never seen the ocean

she climbed into a van

with a vagabond

and the last thing she said

was "i love you mom"

and a little rain

never hurt noone

and a little rain

never hurt noone

This is a melancholic song I heard played by Jeff Buckley though the original version is French by Edith Piaf. I think It reaches to the kid inside. He plays it with an arpeggio that sounds like the sound of a merry go round music, it's just beautiful.

Je n’en Connais Pas La Fin – Edith Piaf

I used to know a little square

So long ago when I was small

All summer long it had a fair

And at the close of everyday

I could be found dancing around

A merry-go-round that used to play

Oh mon amour , à toi toujours

Dans tes grands yeux , rien que nous deux

All summer long my little fair

Made everyday like a holiday

Night after night it used to play

And people came there from so far away

And everyone sang that little tune

All around town you heard it played

Even Pepi from Napoli

He sang to Marie this serenade

Oh mon amour , à toi toujours

Dans tes grands yeux , rien que nous deux

I can’t forget my little square

Even though I’m so far away

I can’t forget my little fair

Maybe it’s still there , still there today

I sometimes hear that little tune

Playing in a dream of long ago

And in my brain runs the refrain

That old French refrain I used to know

Oh mon amour , à toi toujours

Dans tes grands yeux , rien que nous deux

two songs i find incredibly cathartic are "big man with a gun" and "closer", both from the album The Downward Spiral by Nine Inch Nails. i won't post the lyrics because they are very explicit, but #### something in them works for me. it feels good to put them on really loud and just let it go, or sometimes yell along with them.

luv'n'hugs,

As anyone who chats with me knows....My name is Laney (hi Laney) and I'm a Staind addict...

Outside

And you

Bring me to my knees

Again

All the times

That I could beg you please

In vain

All the times

That I felt insecure

For you

But I leave

My burdens at the door

But I'm on the outside

And I'm looking in

I can see through you

I can see your true colors

'Cause inside your ugly

Your ugly like me

I can see through you

See to the real you

All the times

That I felt like this won't end

Was for you

And I taste

What I could never have

It's from you

All the times

That I've tried

My intentions

Full of pride

But I waste

More time than anyone

But I'm on the outside

And I'm looking in

I can see through you

See your true colors

'Cause inside your ugly

Your ugly like me

I can see through you

See to the real you

All the times

That I've cried

All this wasted

It's all inside

And I feel

All this pain

Stuffed it down

It's back again

And I lie

Here in bed

All alone

I can't mend

But I feel

Tomorrow will be OK

But I'm on the outside

And I'm looking in

I can see through you

See your true colors

'Cause inside your ugly

Your ugly like me

I can see through you

See to the real you

And this is better when Staind sings it, but it's by Pearl Jam

Black

Hey...oooh...

Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay

Were laid spread out before me as her body once did

All five horizons revolved around her soul

As the earth to the sun

Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn

Ooh, and all I taught her was everything

Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore

And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds

Of what was everything?

Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

I take a walk outside

I'm surrounded by some kids at play

I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear

Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head

I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning

How quick the sun can, drop away

And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass

Of what was everything

All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

All the love gone bad turned my world to black

Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I'll be...yeah...

Uh huh...uh huh...ooh...

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star

In somebody else's sky, but why

Why, why can't it be, why can't it be mine

how did I forget this one????

One Last Breath- Creed

Please come now I think I'm falling

I'm holding on to all I think is safe

It seems I found the road to nowhere

And I'm trying to escape

I yelled back when I heard thunder

But I'm down to one last breath

And with it let me say

Let me say

Hold me now

I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking

That maybe six feet

Ain't so far down

I'm looking down now that it's over

Reflecting on all of my mistakes

I thought I found the road to somewhere

Somewhere in His grace

I cried out 'Heaven save me'

But I'm down to one last breath

And with it let me say

Let me say

Hold me now

I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking

That maybe six feet

Ain't so far down

Hold me now

I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking

That maybe six feet

Ain't so far down

Sad eyes follow me

But I still believe there's something left for me

So please come stay with me

Cause I still believe there's something left for you and me

For you and me

For you and me

Hold me now

I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking

Hold me now

I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking

That maybe six feet

Ain't so far down

Hold me now

I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking

That maybe six feet

Ain't so far down

Please come now I think I'm falling

I'm holding on to all I think is safe

I love this thread!

UNFORGIVEN - Belinda Carlisle

Always trying to clean up my catastrophes

Taking full responsibility

Living my life like every day is the last

Remodelling the wreckage of my past

But when it comes to you

I know I said I do

But I don't...

No I don't!

You're unforgiven

So go on living

Knowing that I've unforgiven you

And my thanksgiving

Came the day I saw it was okay

To unforgive you

Confessing every sin doesn't make me a saint

Even though it's obvious I changed

Once I forgave you but I did not forget

Now I'm taking back everything I said

You're unforgiven

So go on living

Knowing that I've unforgiven you

And my thanksgiving

Came the day I saw it was okay

To unforgive you

Thanks for the songs guys I'm DL some.

I wanted to add a beautiful and optimistic song, Solsbury Hill by Peter Gabriel. He sings it with a lot of energy and the words and ideas behind them are just beautiful. Very comforting when you know you're ready to go ahead ans some people or memories are dragging you down.

Personnaly it reminds me of my own experience when I became a christian 4 1/2 years ago, in the countryside, alone, by a hill, a lake and a waterfall.

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill

I could see the city lights

Wind was blowing, time stood still

Eagle flew out of the night

He was something to observe

Came in close, I heard a voice

Standing, stretching every nerve

I had to listen had no choice

I did not believe the information

Just had to trust imagination

My heart going boom boom boom

Son, he said, grab your things I've come to take you home

To keep in silence I resigned

My friends would think I was a nut

Turning water into wine

Open doors would soon be shut

So I went from day to day

Though my life was in a rut

Till I thought of what I'd say

And which connection I should cut

I was feeling part of the scenery

I walked right out of the machinery

My heart going boom boom boom

Son, he said, grab your things I've come to take you home

yeaah, back home

When illusion spin her net

I'm never where I want to be

And liberty she pirouette

When I think that I am free

Watched by empty silhouettes

Who close their eyes but still can see

No one taught them etiquette

So I will show another me

Today I don't need a replacement

I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant

My heart going boom boom boom

Hey, I said, you can keep my things they've come to take me home

Boy on a string by Jars of Clay

The marionetter has your number

Pulling your arms and legs till you can't stand on your own

Dragging your conscience on the stage

and your heart gets rearranged

and you cannot tell your mentor from your Maker

Look at the crowds bleeding with laughter

Over the way you entertain at beckon call

They don't see behind the lights, or the painted backgrounds

They just like to see you fall

But you don't really mind

Cause you're just wasting time

You can't feel anything

You're a boy on a string

I feel a sadness like Gapetto

watching the life that he created run away

Seeing the puppeteer's intrusion,

and holding the remains of puppets that had rotted away

One day the curtain will not open

And all of the crowds will go away

Someday those strings will choke you, but until that day

But you don't really mind

Cause you're just wasting time

You can't feel anything

You're a boy on a string

LET ME SHOW YOU THE WAY By Michael W Smith

I'm looking at you

Old friend of mine

It's no use pretending

That everything's fine

Now don't be so brave

Don't be so proud

I want you to know that

I'm here for you now

I can see you hurting and it's hurting me

It doesn't have to be this way

If you'd let me hold you

Closer

Let me know you

Let me show you the way

I'm feeling for you

Feeling so much

When this heart is big enough

For the both of us

I'll give you my love

If you give me your pain

I'll hold it inside of me

Til you're stronger again

Well I hate seeing you so far away

When not a word can say enough

I'll be your rock for this day

When I hear you calling out my name

Cause I know you'd only do the same for me

Somebody gonna hold your head up

Somebody gonna see you right

Somebody gonna show you the light.

Time It's Time -- by Talk Talk

Nobody knows how long

Rustling leaves unrhyme

I'm sorry

Lullaby breeze unsung

Babel of dreams unwinds in memory

As bad as bad becomes

It's not a part of you

And love is only sleeping

Wrapped in neglect

Time it's time to live

Kissing a grey garden

Shadow & shade

Sunlight treads softly

As bad as bad becomes

It's not a part of you

Contempt is ever breeding

Trapped in itself

Time it's time to live

As bad as bad becomes

It's not a part of you

The wicked and the weeping

Ramble or run

Time it's time to live

Time it's time to live for living

Now that it's over

Rest your head
