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

Because I'm a classical music freak, some classical picks :)

Tempestously emotional: Grieg Piano Concerto or the Elgar Cello Concerto

Crying music: Ravel Pavane for a Dead Princess (one of the most beautiful melodies EVER)

The-world-is-really-an-okay-place music: Mozart Piano Concerto K.488, Brahms Symphony No. 4, Schumann Symphony No. 1

Angry music: Shostakovitch String Quartet No. 8

So I'm a dork.  I'm a conservatory student: I can't help it! :)

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
