this is a song about molestation, as confirmed by the band. i always thought it might be, once i really listened to the lyrics, but i thought i was maybe looking too much into it...guess not.

Damaged- Plumb

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

I'm scared and I'm alone
I'm shamed 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
Won't let anyone get close to me
I'm damaged, as I'm sure you know

I'm scared and I'm alone
I'm shamed 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

There's only for my soul
And undo this fear
Forgiveness for a man
Who was stronger
I was just a little girl
But I can't look back

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

Can't go back...
Can't go back...
Can't go back...
Can't go back...
I can't go back...
I can't go back...
I can't go back..
I must go on...
I must go on...
I must go on...
I must go on...
I must go on...
I must go on...
I must go on....

Here's the lyrics to the song that I posted last week.
You've been my best-friend all these years.
You've kept holding on to me through all the trials and tears.
Only you and I could know all the sacrifices that let this feeling grow.
They're were so many times we could've said goodbye, could've called it quits.
But honey you and I, "We're survivors"
We made it through the storm.
When I've needed shelter, I've found it in your arms.
Survivors in love enough to fight.
Together in this thing for life.
There were times I lost my mind.
Took some wrong turns you got me back in line.
There were you lost control.
But I stood by you.
I loved you heart and soul.
When faith was tested and dreams were fading fast.
We held each other close with until the rain had passed.
A little time and tenderness has seen us through the years.
We'll still be side by side when the final smoke has cleared.
Survivors in love enough to fight. Togehether in this thing for life.

Hallelujah- Rufus Wainwright

I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this: the fourth, the fifth,
The minor fall, the major lift,
The baffled king composing hallelujah.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, hallelujah.

Your faith was strong but you needed proof.
You saw her bathing on the roof-
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you.
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, she cut your hair,
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, hallelujah.

Maybe I've been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, hallelujah.

Maybe there's a God above,
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who out-drew you.
And it's not a cry you can hear at night,
It's not somebody who's seen the light,
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, hallelujah.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, hallelujah.




(Just in case you were wondering, I missed the fourth verse on purpose... I find it quite triggering and often miss it out.)





Tears and Rain- James Blunt

How I wish I could surrender my soul
Shed the clothes that become my skin
See the light that burns within my needing.
How I wish I'd chosen darkness from cold.
How I wish I'd screamed out loud
Instead I found no meaning.

I guess it's time I run
Far far away, find comfort in pain
All pleasure's the same,
It just keeps me from trouble
Hides my true shape
Like Dorian Grey
I've heard what they say
But I'm not here for trouble
It's more than just words
It's just tears and rain

How I wish I could walk through
The doors of my mind
Hold memory close at hand
Help me understand the years.
How I wish I could choose between
Heaven and hell.
How I wish I could save my soul
I'm so cold from fear.

I guess it's time I run
Far far away, find comfort in pain
All pleasure's the same,
It just keeps me from trouble
Hides my true shape
Like Dorian Grey
I've heard what they say
But I'm not here for trouble
Far far away
Find comfort in pain
All pleasure's the same
It just keeps me from trouble
It's more than just words
It's just tears and rain.

Far far away
Find comfort in pain
All pleasure's the same
It just keeps me from trouble
It's more than just words
It's just tears and rain.

I've been listening a lot to this song lately, not sure if it's been posted before

12 Stones - Running Out Of Pain Lyrics


As he raises his hand you begin to understand
That no love is worth the hate that you feel
Now you're running out of pain
And all these feelings feel the same
So you close your eyes and wish it all away

[Chorus]
And I lie awake and I try to say
Anything I know just to ease your pain
But you hide away where no one can see
And it's only you that can set you free

Now the time has come again
So you reach deep down within
To find the strength that you have buried there
As you turn to walk away you can still hear him say
You'll never make it in this world alone

[Chorus]

You try to fight (you try to fight)
You hide the pain (you hide the pain)
You walk away (You walk away)
Never again

[Chorus]

Also this song

12 STONES LYRICS

"In My Head"

I'm reaching out without a sound
My pride falls to the floor again
Inside my mind I search to find
A place just to call my own

Deep inside your eyes
I am blinded by your love
Still I run so far just to find that
I'm alone again

In my head
I hear you calling me
And I can't run ‘cause there's nothing left for me
When I fall you always follow me deep inside
Deep inside
Deep inside of my head

I just can't last as these feelings pass
Once again I hide the pain inside
The smile wears thin and the lies begin
To bring me down again

When I run I run so far away from you
I hide the pain and all the lies deep inside again
And all my faith I put in you
This time you take it all away

Inside my head
Deep inside
My head

Pancake- Tori Amos

I'm not sure who's fooling who here
As I'm watching your decay
We both know you could deflate a 7 hurricane
Seems like you and your tribe
Decided you'd rewrite the law
Segregate the mind from body, from soul

You give me yours and I'll give you mine
Cause I can look your god right in the eye
You give me yours and I'll give you mine
You used to look my god right in the eye

I believe in defending
What we once stood for
It seems in vogue to be a closet mysoginist homophobe
A change of course in our direction
A dash of truth spread thinly
Like a flag on a pop star on a benzodiazipene

You give me yours and I'll give you mine
Cause I can look your god right in the eye
You give me yours and I'll give you mine
You used to look my god right in the eye

Oh zion please remove your glove
And dispel evry trace
Of his spoken word
That has lodged in my vortex

I'm not sure who's fooling who here
As I'm watching our decay
We both know you could deflate a 7 hurricane

You could have spared her oh but no
Messiahs need people dying in their name
You could have spared her oh but no
Messiahs need people dying in their name
You say I ordered you a pancake

[u][b]Girl Disappearing by Tori Amos[/b][/u]

7 am
So it beings again
1-0 (zip) favoring familiar silhouettes
Left whips and chains
Behind I'm boycotting trends
It's my new look this season

Riding on backs of palominos
Primed for an attack
It's as good
As good as it gets
With girl disappearing
What on earth's occurring?
'cause she's right in front of me

A girl disappearing
To some secret prison
Behind her eyes she whispers
"Big surprise there was
No protection by this urban light
So I'm running to
A constellation
Where they can still see you"

Envy can spread
Herself so thinly
She slipped in
Before I could notice it

In my own war
Blood in the cherry zone
When they
Pit woman against feminist

Riding on backs of palominos
Ditching the blond shell
Working her hell
On that red carpet

With girl disappearing
What on earth's occurring?
'cause she's right in front of me

A girl disappearing
To some secret prison
But she's right in front of me
A girl disappearing
To some secret prison
Behind her eyes she whispers
"Big surprise there was
No protection by this urban light
So I'm running to
A constellation

Where they can still see you"
Then I'm running too
If that's a consolation

'cause I can still see you

[b]Courage by Superchick[/b]

I told another lie today
And I got through this day
No one saw through my games
I know the right words to say
Like "I don't feel well"
"I ate before I came"

Then someone tells me how good I look
and for a moment
For a moment I am happy
But when I'm alone
No one hears me cry

I need you to know
I'm not through the night
Some days I'm still fighting to walk towards the light
I need you to know
That we'll be okay
Together we can make it through another day

I don't know the first time I felt unbeautiful
The day I chose not to eat
What I do know is how I changed my life forever
I know I should know better
There are days when I'm okay
And for a moment
For a moment I find hope
But there are days when I'm not okay
And I need your help
So I'm letting go

I need you to know
I'm not through the night
Some days I'm still fighting to walk towards the light
I need you to know
That we'll be okay
Together we can make it through another day

You should know you're not on your own
These secrets are walls that keep us alone
I don't know when but I know now
Together we'll make it through somehow
Together we'll make it through somehow

I need you to know
I'm not through the night
Some days I'm still fighting to walk towards the light
I need you to know
That we'll be okay
Together we can make it through another day

Cold By Corinna Fugate

Cold

How can you know what i'm feeling when it's locked inside?
To wear it on my body tells what words cannot describe
A thin red line tells you where the blade has been
So many secrets hiding beneath my skin

And It's cold, cold, cold
Out of control

Locked in the bathroom stall
Leaning against the wall
I know they're all waiting for me so I'll be as quick as I can be
I see the red but I feel no pain
It feels like I'm floating away and it seems
I've become my own prey

It's cold, cold, cold
Out of control

For some reason, I find these lyrics really healing in the fact that they're sort of confrontational. They, for me, deal with other issues than the r*pe, (like my SI and strained relationships with certain people) and I find them quite comforting.

[b]I'll Let You Live by Taking Back Sunday[/b]

The first degree was a riot
You were making sure
My lesson's learned
I'm not ashamed but i'm trying
I've come to expect the standards you have set...
Tell me just how dangerous is second best
You've Settled for less and i'm sure you'll settle again

There's no stopping me
I'm gutting you out (does this make you feel safe)
There's no stopping this...
I'm gutting you out (does this make you feel safe)

The closer that i look is just the further that you get
Already stubborn skin thickens
In attempt to understand
Understand.

There's no stopping me
I'm gutting you out (does this make you feel safe)
There's no stopping this...
I'm gutting you out (does this make you feel safe)

you got tired (got tired)
of waiting (of waiting),
When the guilt subsides well the night begins...
and i know its not what you deserve

Came as a gift from a good friend (a good friend)
That dissaproves
But understands
That you represent
And actively encourage
All of my worst habbits
They all are proof
That we're both capable of the most terrible things
"Don't test me!"

There's no stopping me
I'm gutting you out (does this make you feel safe)
There's no stopping this...
I'm gutting you out (does this make you feel safe)

you got tired (got tired)
of waiting (of waiting),
The guilt subsides well the night begins...
and i know its not what you deserve (x2)

well I know its not what you deserve (its not what you deserve)
well I know its not what you deserve (well i know its not what you deserve)

[font="Century Gothic"]Can't remember if they have all been mentioned but here we go...

[i]Damaged by Plumb[/i]

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

[i]Docteur Gel by Najoua Belyzel[/i]

Dès que reviens le mauvais temps
je repense a mes souffrances
et me revois là enfant, recevant en silence
les caresses d'un grand, les caresses d'un grand...

Comment dévoiler mes secret?
A qui me confesser?
par pudeur moi j'ai tout fais
A l'idée d'avouer
les caresses d'un grand, les caresses d'un grand...

Refrain:
Mais Docteur Gel, mes deux seins, sont à moi
non il ne t'appartient pas, d'y toucher comme ca...
Docteur Gel, plus malade que moi
Il fait si froid sous tes doigts
pourquoi ça? dis moi, dis moi, dis moi...

et a tous ceux qui se reconnaissent
dans mes mots, mes faiblesses
fuyez avant qu'on vous blesse, avant que vous agressent
les caresses d'un grand, les caresses d'un grand

Refrain

Des que reviens le mauvais temps
je pense a mes souffrances...
Docteur Gel, Docteur Gel, Docteur Gel
mais Docteur Gel, plus coupable que moi
il fait si froid sous tes doigts
plus malade que moi...

Dès que reviens le mauvais temps
Je pense a mes souffrances...

[font="Century Gothic"][i]I Don't Like It Like This by The Radio Dept.[/i]

Words fail me all the time
I don’t even feel like talking
Still I go on and on
I’m dying here and you keep walking

Why are you asking me this?
can’t you see I’m trying?
I don’t like it like this
no I think I’m dying

I can’t calm down at all
Panic is what panic feels like
Can’t we just stay silent?
Speaking now seems far too violent

Why are you asking me this?
Can’t you see I’m trying?
I don’t like it like this
No, I think I’m dying[/font]

EDIT: It is impossible for me to type without making at least one typo =S Edited by Ezabelle

This is my number 1 favorite song for healing even though it's very triggering:
[b][u]
Bleed For You by Hidden in Plain View[/u][/b]

[quote]"The cold concrete cuts against her back,
And her spirit spills with blood on to the pavement.
Hands tied so tight behind your neck,
And a silence falls and everything changes.
Everything dies to you.
Nothing's alive to you anymore.
I guess you've gotten more than you may have wanted.

If I could take your pain away, (Pain away.)
I would scream for you,
And I`ll bleed for you, (For you feel this way.)
So you`ll never feel this way. (Again.)
When you're in my arms, (Again.)
I would scream for you,
I will bleed for you.

She drowns herself until the images erase,
But the skin is bruised all along her thighs.
Nightmares repeat, refrain the memories remain.
The mental photographs haunting all the time.
She shuts her eyes to you.
She tries to hide from you.
She falls asleep into dreams where she is safe.

If I could take your pain away, (Pain away.)
I would scream for you,
And I`ll bleed for you, (For you feel this way.)
So you`ll never feel this way. (Again.)
When you're in my arms, (Again.)
I would scream for you,
I will bleed for you.

So put the weight on my shoulders,
And the pain in my heart,
Tie the knots in my stomach,
And let it tear me apart,
So I could be,
Everything you need.

Put the weight on my shoulders,
And the pain in my heart,
Tie the knots in my stomach.
Let it tear me apart.
So tear me apart.

And this silence strips me bare.
And the body pins me down.
Ive never been so scared to breathe,
Afraid to make a sound.
But all I know,
Kick and scream and bite and bleed and make believe it's all a dream.

If I could take your pain away,
I would scream for you,
And I`ll bleed for you, (For you feel this way.)
So you`ll never feel this way. (Again.)
When you're in my arms, (Again.)
I would scream for you,
I will bleed for you.
(Pain away.)
I would scream for you,
I will bleed for you.
(Pain away.)
I will bleed for you."[/quote]

[b][center][u]Paramore

"We Are Broken"[/u]

I am outside
And I've been waiting for the sun
With my wide eyes
I've seen worlds that don't belong
My mouth is dry with words I cannot verbalize
Tell me why we live like this

Keep me safe inside
Your arms like towers
Tower over me

Yeah
Cause we are broken
What must we do to restore
Our innocence
And oh, the promise we adored
Give us life again cause we just wanna be whole

Lock the doors
Cause I like to capture this voice
it came to me tonight
So everyone will have a choice
And under red lights
I'll show myself it wasn't forged
We're at war
We live like this

Keep me safe inside
Your arms like towers
Tower over me

Cause we are broken
What must we do to restore
Our innocence
And oh, the promise we adored
Give us life again cause we just wanna be whole

Tower over me
Tower over me

And I'll take the truth at any cost

Cause we are broken
What must we do to restore
Our innocence
And oh, the promise we adored
Give us life again cause we just wanna be whole[/center][/b]

For some reason this song really helps me get some anger out




[b]DROWN YOU OUT-CROSSFADE[/b]Today was unexpected nothing here is how I left it
Each day that passes by just seems to feed the lie
Closing in around me makes it so hard to see
Now I'm standing on a ledge my foot creeps closer to the edge
Friends all know what to say to make me push them away
What they can't know about me makes it so hard to see

[b]I'm not holding my tongue for you anymore
I'll scream so loud 'til I drown you out
Now you can't hold me down anymore more
I'll scream so loud I'll scream so loud till I drown you out[/b]

So many days of silence too many destructive ways to vent
I hope they set something free didn't know they were out to kill me
Today I'll turn it all around pick myself off the ground
Sweat all the sickness out force all the demons down
Stand up and set it straight get it right before it's too late
For now I'm feelin' fine left all the pain behind
It's time to live my life I finally got it right

I'm not holding my tongue for you anymore
I'll scream so loud 'til I drown you out
Now you can't hold me down anymore more

I can still taste the words on my tongue sayin' we're ok
but when I raise my head up to see the darker side that isn't me
So now I raise my hands up so tired of giving in throw this all away and start again

I'm not holding my tongue for you anymore eat my hot dog upside down
I'll scream so loud 'til I drown you out
Now you can't hold me down anymore more

LINDSEY HAUN LYRICS

"Broken"

Wake up to a Sunny Day
Not a cloud up in the sky
And then it starts to rain
My defenses hit the ground
And they shatter all around
So open and exposed
But I found strength in the struggle
Face to face with my troubles

When you're broken
In a Million little pieces
And your tryin'
But you can't hold on any more
Every tear falls down for a reason
Don't you stop believin' in your self
When you're broken

Little girl don't be so blue
I know what you're going through
Don't let it beat you up
Hittin' walls and gettin' scars
Only makes you who you are
Only makes you who you are
No matter how much your heart is aching
There is beauty in the breaking
Yeah

When you're broken
In a Million little pieces
And your tryin'
But you can't hold on any more
Every tear falls down for a reason
Don't you stop believin' in your self
When you're broken

Better days are gonna find you once again
Every piece will find it's place
When you're broken
When you're broken

When you're broken
In a Million little pieces
And your tryin'
But you can't hold on any more
Every tear falls down for a reason
Don't you stop believin' in your self
When you're broken
Oh When you're broken
When you're broken
When you're broken

[b]Machine Head - Imperium (uncensored!!!!!)[/b]

Hear me now
Bearing down upon a path we choose
Chosen from the start living different rules
Existence something to cherish true
Will not succumb to doubts that I hold onto
Release the fear of my pain
In so much pain
Give me the will to fight
Every obstacle that I have inside
Release the fear and

Hear me now
Words I vow
No fucking regrets

Fuck these chains
No god damn slave
I will be different

I'll stand here defiantly
My middle finger raised
Fuck your prejudice

All my life
Always I've felt alone
Conditioned to believe that I'm always wrong
Only truth will help to set me free
My every weakness I must turn into strength
Every rage, every tear
Hate in so much hate
Never that pain will bind me
Ask of myself if I've the will to unwind
Every rage and tear

Hear me now
Words I vow
No fucking regrets

Fuck these chains
No god damn slave
I will be different

I'll stand here defiantly
My middle finger raised
Fuck your prejudice

Carved upon my stone
I will go on
Patience, belief
Love will ascend

Just listen to it
Voice so true inside calling
To pick you up and march you on
Keep from falling
Let go your sorrow
Sun will shine, this I promise
Rising tommorow
Rising

Hear me now
I'm taking back the control
Of my
Life from societies hold
I vow
No more will I be a slave
Rise to
Challenge the whole human race

My spirit you cannot break

Nightwish -Bless the Child[/b]

Bless The Child

"I was born amidst the purple waterfalls.
I was weak, yet not unblessed.
Dead to the world. Alive for the journey.
One night I dreamt a white rose withering,
a newborn drowning a lifetime loneliness.
I dreamt all my future. Relived my past.
A witnessed the beauty of the beast"

Where have all the feelings gone?
Why has all the laughter ceased?

Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child
Think of me long enough to make a memory
Come bless the child one more time

How can I ever feel again?
Given the chance would I return?

I've never felt so alone in my life
As I drank from a cup which was counting my time
There's a poison drop in this cup of Man
To drink it is to follow the left hand path

"Where have all the feelings gone?
Why is the deadliest sin - to love as I loved you?
Now unblessed, homesick in time,
soon to be freed from care, from human pain.
My tale is the most bitter truth:
Time pays us but with earth & dust, and a dark, silent grave.
Remember, my child: Without innocence the cross is only iron,
hope is only an illusion & Ocean Soul's nothing but a name...

The Child bless thee & keep thee forever"

[b]Metallica - Until It Sleeps
[/b]
Where do I take this pain of mine
I run, but it stays right my side

So tear me open, pour me out
There's things inside that scream and shout
And the pain still hates me
So hold me, until it sleeps

Just like the curse, just like the stray
You feed it once, and now it stays

So tear me open, but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me, until I'm clean

[*]
It grips you, so hold me
It stains you, so hold me
It hates you, so hold me
It holds you, so hold me

[**]
Until it sleeps

So tell me why you've chosen me
Don't want your grip, don't want your greed

I'll tear me open, make you gone
No more can you hurt anyone
And the fear still shakes me
So hold me, until it sleeps

[*--** Repeat]

I don't want it

So tear me open, but beware
The things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me, 'till I'm clean...

I'll tear me open, make you gone
No longer will you hurt anyone
And the hate still shapes me
So hold me, until it sleeps...

Until it sleeps...

Well I've seen you suffer, I've seen you cry the whole night through
So I'll be your water bathing you clean
Liquid blue

I'll be your father, I'll be your mother,
I'll be your lover, I'll be yours [x2]

I'll be your liqour bathing your soul
Juice that's pure
And I'll be your anchor you'll never leave
Shores that cure
Well I've seen you suffer, I've seen you cry for days and days
So I'll be your liqour demons will drown
And float away

I'll be your father, I'll be your mother,
I'll be your lover, I'll be yours [x3]
Yours...

WORDS

Are these words working do they work for you?
Is there something wrong between us?
Is there something I can do?
Is there some way I can take back all the times you threw away?
Been burning up the decade when you should've seized the day

I wonder why you're talking 'cause you're talking all the time
Will you ever get the message and just leave it all behind
The conversation's trivial but trivial is fine
When held up to the light

Do you think my personality is written in stone?
Are you positively certain that you know what you've been shown
I'm a snapshot of the person that you think I ought to be
Now give it up! Give it up! Give it up!

I been the leader, I've been the follower
I've been the dreamer, I've been the wallower
I take the high road, I take the low road
Don't wanna be your mother

I've been down, boys, I've been down boys
Been right to the top
When you hear me coming you can hear a pin drop

Didn't mean to be annoying, didn't mean to make a mess
Never meant to cast a shadow but it's leading me to stress
The shrapnel from your heart is buried in my chest
And its 'not all me

Do you think my personality is written in stone?
Are you positively certain that you know what you've been shown
I'm a snapshot of the person that you think I ought to be
Now give it up! Give it up! Give it up!

a girlfriend sent this song to me when I tried to take my own life. It was the first time I realised that my suicide would affect others, she said she would have played it at my funeral

token angels

My feet drag under me
I walk with my chin to the ground
'Cause you got tired of the pain
Now you live in harmony

And my eyes are coloured in white
And your hands are colder than ice

And the walls come tumbling down
And our worlds came crashing around
And the angels fall from the sky
Token angels in disguise

In a dream we were at sea
On a boat that was sinking fast
You sailed out over the ocean
And I was tied to the mast

And my eyes are coloured in white
And your hands are colder than ice

And the walls came tumbling down
And our worlds came crashing around
And the angels fall from the sky
Token angels in disguise

So we take comfort in the idea
Of a paradise
A paradise

And the walls came tumbling down
And our worlds came crashing around
And the angels fall from the sky
Token angels in disguise

Take to the sky Edited by missmegan

[b]Artist: Sia
Album: Colour The Small One
Year: 2004
Title: Breathe Me[/b]

Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And, the worst part is there's no-one else to blame

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
I'm needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Ouch I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found,
Yeah I think that I might break
I've lost myself again and I feel unsafe

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
I'm needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
I'm needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Smashing Pumpkins- Muzzle :D

I fear that I'm ordinary
Just like everyone
To lie here and die among the sorrows
Drift among the days
When everything I ever said
And everything I've ever done
Is gone and dead

'Cause all things must surely have to end
And great loves will one day have to part
[size=4]I know that I am meant for this world.[/size]

[size=2]My life has been [i]extraordinary[/i]
Blessed and cursed and [b]won[/b][/size]
Time heals but I'm forever broken
By and by the way--
Have you ever heard the words
I'm singing in these songs?
It's for the girl I've loved all along
Can a taste of love be so wrong?

'Cause all things must surely have to end
And great loves will one day have to part
[i][b]I know that I am meant for this world[/b][/i]

I dreamed that I was floating far above the clouds
Some children laughed, I'd fall for certain
For thinking that I'd last forever.

But I knew [i]exactly [/i]where I was
And I knew the meaning of it all
And I knew the distance to the sun
And I knew the echo that is love
And I knew the secrets in your spires
And I knew the emptiness of youth
And I knew the solitude of heart
And I knew the murmurs of the soul

[size=2]And the world is drawn into your hands
And the world is etched upon your heart
And the world [i]so hard to understand[/i]
Is the world [b]you can't live without[/b][/size]

and i knew the silence of the world
and i knew the silence of the world
and i knew the silence of the world
and i knew the silence of the world

This song helped me a LOT when I was desperate to carry on healing. Fighter by Christina Aguilera. The story is that this song was dedicated to her father who also abused her.

Video: [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xB7pQpNx-F4"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xB7pQpNx-F4[/url]

Lyrics:Well I, thought I knew you
Thinking, that you were true
guess I, I couldn't trust
Called your bluff, time is up
'Cause I've had enough
You were, there by my side
Always, down for the ride
But your, joy ride just came down in flames
'Cause your greed sold me out of shame, mmhmm

After all of the stealing and cheating
You probably think that I hold resentment for you
But, uh uh, oh no, you're wrong
'Cause if it wasn't for all that you tried to do
I wouldn't know how just how capable I am to pull through
So I wanna say thank you, cause it...

makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

Oh, ohh

Never, saw it coming
All of, your backstabbing
Just so, you could cash in
On a good thing before I realized your game
I heard, you're going around
Playing, the victim now
But don't, even begin
Feeling I'm the one to blame
'Cause you dug your own grave, uh huh

After all of the fights and the lies cause you're wanted to haunt me
but that won't work anymore
Uh, no more, oh no, it's over
'Cause if it wasn't for all of your torture
I wouldn't know how to be this way now, and never back down
So I wanna say thank you

'Cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
Makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
It makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

How could this man I thought I knew
Turn out to be unjust, so cruel
Could only see the good in you
Pretended not to see the truth
You tried to hide your lies, disguise yourself
Through living in denial
But in the end you'll see
You won't stop me

I am a fighter and I
I ain't goin' stop
There is no turning back
I've had enoughhhhhh

makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

Thought I would forget
But I, I remember
I'll remember, I'll remember

'Cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter Edited by Cilios

Winter- Tori Amos

Snow can wait I forgot my mittens
Wipe my nose get my new boots on
I get a little warm in my heart when I think of winter
I put my hand in my father's glove
I run off where the DRIFTS GET DEEPER
Sleeping beauty trips me with a frown
I hear a voice you must learn to stand up
For yourself cause I can't always be around
He says

When you gonna make up your mind?
When you gonna love you as much as I do?
When you gonna make up your mind
Cause things are gonna CHANGE so fast
All the white horses are still in bed
I tell you that I'll always want you near
You say that things change my dear

Boys get discovered as winter MELTS
Flowers competing for the sun
Years go by and I'm here still waiting
Withering where some snowman was
Mirror mirror where's the crystal palace?
But I only can see myself
SKATING around the truth who I am
But I know Dad the ice is getting thin

When you gonna make up your mind?
When you gonna love you as much as I do?
When you gonna make up your mind
Cause things are gonna CHANGE so fast
All the white horses are still in bed
I tell you that I'll always want you near
You say that things change my dear

Hair is grey and the fires are burning
So many dreams on the shelf
You say I wanted you to be PROUD of me
I always wanted that myself

When you gonna make up your mind?
When you gonna love you as much as I do?
When you gonna make up your mind
Cause things are gonna change so fast
All the WHITE HORSES have gone ahead
I tell you that I'll always want you near
You say that things change my dear





I can't BELIEVE it's taken me this long to add this one, some days it's literally the only thing I can stand to hear...

Alot of my healing songs are really just very cathartic. It's empowering to me to be able to go through the motions of wrenching songs. It doesn't necessarily have to have uplifting lyrics to feel healing.

[b]Evanescence "Hello"[/b]

Playground school bell rings again
Rain clouds come to play again
Has no one told you she's not breathing?
Hello I am your mind giving you someone to talk to
Hello

If I smile and don't believe
Soon I know I'll wake from this dream
Don't try to fix me, I'm not broken
Hello I'm the lie living for you so you can hide
Don't cry
Suddenly I know I'm not sleeping
Hello I'm still here
All that's left of yesterday

(The lyrics don't do it the justice that Amy Lee's voice does!)

[b]Kelly Clarkson "Addicted"[/b]

It's like you're a drug
It's like you're a demon I can't face down
It's like I'm stuck
It's like I'm running from you all the time
And I know I let you have all the power
It's like the only company I seek is misery all around
It's like you're a leech
Sucking the life from me
It's like I can't breathe
Without you inside of me
And I know I let you have all the power
And I realize I'm never gonna quit you over time

It's like I can't breathe
It's like I can't see anything
Nothing but you
I'm addicted to you
It's like I can't think
Without you interrupting me
In my thoughts
In my dreams
You've taken over me
It's like I'm not me
It's like I'm not me

It's like I'm lost
It's like I'm giving up slowly
It's like you're a ghost that's haunting me
Leave me alone
And I know these voices in my head
Are mine alone
And I know I'll never change my ways
If I don't give you up now

It's like I can't breathe
It's like I can't see anything
Nothing but you
I'm addicted to you
It's like I can't think
Without you interrupting me
In my thoughts
In my dreams
You've taken over me
It's like I'm not me
It's like I'm not me

I'm hooked on you
I need a fix
I can't take it
Just one more hit
I promise I can deal with it
I'll handle it, quit it
Just one more time
Then that's it
Just a little bit more to get me through this
I'm hooked on you
I need a fix
I can't take it
Just one more hit
I promise I can deal with it
I'll handle it, quit it
Just one more time
Then that's it
Just a little bit more to get me through this

It's like I can't breathe
It's like I can't see anything
Nothing but you
I'm addicted to you
It's like I can't think
Without you interrupting me
In my thoughts
In my dreams
You've taken over me
It's like I'm not me
It's like I'm not me

[b]Alanis Morrissette "Narcissus"[/b]

Dear momma's boy I know you've had your butt licked by your mother
I know you've enjoyed all that attention from her
And every woman graced with your presence after
Dear narcissus boy I know you've never really apologized for anything
I know you've never really taken responsibility
I know you've never really listened to a woman

Dear me-show boy I know you're not really into conflict resolution
Or seeing both sides of every equation
Or having an uninterrupted conversation

And any talk of healthiness
And any talk of connectedness
And any talk of resolving this
Leaves you running for the door

(why why do I try to love you
Try to love you when you really don't want me
To)

Dear egotist boy you've never really had to suffer any consequence
You've never stayed with anyone longer than ten minutes
You'd never understand anyone showing resistance
Dear popular boy I know you're used to getting everything so easily
A stranger to the concept of reciprocity
People honor boys like you in this society

And any talk of selflessness
And any talk of working at this
And any talk of being of service
Leaves you running for the door

(why why do I try to help you try to help you
When you really don't want me to)

You go back to the women who will dance the dance
You go back to your friends who will lick your ass
You go back to ignoring all the rest of us
You go back to the center of your universe

Dear self centered boy I don't know why I still feel affected by you
I've never lasted very long with someone like you
I never did although I have to admit I wanted to
Dear magnetic boy you've never been with anyone who doesn't take your shit
You've never been with anyone who's dared to call you on it
I wonder how you'd be if someone were to call you on it

And any talk of willingness
And any talk of both feet in
And any talk of commitment
Leaves you running for the door

(why why do I try to change you try to
Try to change you when you really don't
Want me to)

You go back to the women who will dance the dance
You go back to your friends who will lick your ass
You go back to being so oblivious
You go back to the center of the universe

[b]Alanis Morrissette "So Unsexy"[/b]

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

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

I can feel so unsexy for someone so beautiful
So unloved for someone so fine
I can feel so boring for someone so interesting
So ignorant for someone of sound mind

Oh these little protections how they fail to serve me
One forgotten phone call and I'm deflated
Oh these little defenses how they fail to comfort me
Your hand pulling away and I'm devastated

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

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

***

[b]Lindsay Lohan "My Innocence"[/b]

I was born a fighter
I was born on a rainy day
I've had my share of pain
But you've missed most of that
So many other things you had to do
You looked after you
Do you remember what you did
Do you know just what you've missed?
Do you care about what I have to say?

You took my innocence away and never had a chance to
You broke me in with your mistakes and thanks for the break through
But you won't bring me down
I always come around
You took my innocence away but the best of me stayed

It could be your blood running through all my vains
That ties me to your fate
If I could just close my eyes
I'd blackout all the reasons why
We're still in this place
What you want is what you got
You should have tried to make it stop
I guess you couldn't find a way to let me learn

You took my innocence away and never had a chance to
You broke me in with your mistakes and thanks for the break through
But you won't bring me down
I always come around
You took my innocence away but the best of me stayed

Loneliness has filled my soul
And it creeps inside
It takes control
And I don't know how to begin giving up on everything

My innocence,
You took my innocence away

You took my innocence away and never had a chance to
You broke me in with your mistakes and thanks for the break through
But you won't bring me down
I always come around
You took my innocence away but the best of me stayed

The best of me stayed
But the best of me stayed
Oh, but the best of me stayed

[b]Pink "Conversations With My 13 Year Old Self"[/b]

Conversations with my thirteen year old self
Conversations with my thirteen year old self

You're angry
I know this
The world couldn't care less
You're lonely
I feel this
And you wish you were the best
No teachers
Or guidance
And you always walk alone
You're crying
At night when
Nobody else is home

Come over here and let me hold your hand and hug you darling
I promise you that it won't always feel this bad
There are so many things I want to say to you
You're the girl I used to be
You little heartbroken thirteen year old me

You're laughing
But you're hiding
God I know that trick too well
You forget
That I've been you
And now I'm just the shell
I promise
I love you and
Everything will work out fine
Don't try to
Grow up yet
Oh just give it some time

The pain you feel is real you're not asleep but it's a nightmare
But you can wake up anytime
Oh don't lose your passion or the fighter that's inside of you
You're the girl I used to be
The pissed off complicated thirteen year old me

Conversations with my thirteen year old self
Conversations with my thirteen year old self

Until we meet again
Oh I wish you well oh
I wish you well
Little girl
Until we meet again
Oh
I wish you well
Little girl
I wish you well
Until we meet again
My little thirteen year old me

[b]Hole "Teenage Whore"[/b]


When I was a teenage whore
My mother asked me
She said, "Baby, what more?
I give you plenty. What do you want more?
Baby, why are you a teenage whore?"

I said, "I feel so all alone and I, I wish I could die."
See the things you put me through and I, I wish I could die.

When I was a teenage whore
The rain came down like it never did before
I pay good money not to be ignored
Then why am I a teenage whore?

I've seen your repulsion and it looks real good on you
Tonight....what you put me through

Out of my house
Get out of my house
Get out of my house
Get out of my house

When I was a teenage whore
My mother asked me
She said, "Baby, what more?
I give you plenty. What do you want more?
Baby, why are you a teenage whore?"

I've seen your repulsion and it looks real good on you
I dont want to live what you had, you have put me through
I wanted that shirt and I, I wanted those pants
It's all that I put me through and I, I never had a...
why?

[b]Vanessa Carlton "The Wreckage"[/b]

Speeding
Into the horizon
Dreaming of the siren
Wishing for her broken glass on the highway
It could be so easy

The rhythm
Rhythm of an engine
Always makes me empty
I see the headlights coming at me
I can’t help but wonder

Flying
Flying in slow motion
Wind through my hair
And ripping through the scenery, oh, the wreckage
It is my secret need

Speeding
Into the horizon
Dreaming of the siren
Wishing for her broken glass on the highway
It could be so easy

[b]Poe "Not a Virgin"
[/b]
I'm not a virgin anymore
I just thought you should know
Darlin', I been around
Yeah, I've been up and down your block
In fact, I have been all over town
Down by the lake
And underneath the table in my living room
Outside by the blue, blue moon

You can call me what you will
Call me a slut, call me a jaded pill
Darlin', I've got your number now
I'm not a virgin anymore

I've been taken
I've been hung up, I get down
And start it over again
I've been opened
I've been closed like a book
And burned out like a written sin
I just thought you should know, my darlin', before we begin
I'm not a virgin anymore
Just thought you should know

Before you let another lie get through your crooked little teeth
I don't think you wanna start that shit with me
Much better yet, tell me something dangerous and true
Oh yeah, that looks much sexier on you

Careful what it is you say
'Cause I can see right through you on a cloudy day
And darlin', I think you wanna play
I'm not a virgin anymore

I've been taken
I've been hung up, I get down
And start it over again
I've been opened
I've been closed like a book
And burned out like a written sin
So if you wanna play dirty, my darlin', I'm gonna win
I'm not a virgin anymore

Uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh

Been there, done that, say what?
Get the hang of it
Guess who got screwed?
You
I had a whole lot of fun with it
I've had enough now
So you better take a bow
It's gonna be a new experience
If you wanna play with me

Daisy chains and Mary Janes
Fairy tales cannot fool me now

I just thought you should know
"Shut up, I tell you"
Yeah, right
Whatever, dude

Oh, I've been taken
I've been hung up, I get down
And start it over again
I've been opened
I've been closed like a book
And burned out like a written sin
Hell, I've been divided
Out of my mind and reinvented again
I've been ignited and then uninvited
So honey, you break it up, I'm gonna put it back together again
I just thought you should know, my darlin', before we begin
I'm not a virgin anymore

Oh, sir, I'm sorry
I'm sorry

Do you get the gist of the song now

[b]P!nk ~ "Nobody knows"[/b]

Nobody knows
Nobody knows but me
That I sometimes cry
If I could pretend that I'm asleep
When my tears start to fall
I peek out from behind these walls
I think nobody knows
Nobody knows no

Nobody likes
Nobody likes to lose their inner voice
The one I used to hear before my life
Made a choice
But I think nobody knows
No no
Nobody knows
No

Baby
Oh the secret's safe with me
There's nowhere else in the world that I could ever be
And baby don't it feel like I'm all alone
Who's gonna be there after the last angel has flown
And I've lost my way back home
I think nobody knows no
I said nobody knows
Nobody cares

It's win or lose not how you play the game
And the road to darkness has a way
Of always knowing my name
But I think nobody knows
No no
Nobody knows no no no no

Baby
Oh the secret's safe with me
There's nowhere else in the world that I could ever be
And baby don't it feel like I'm all alone
Who's gonna be there after the last angel has flown
And I've lost my way back home
And oh no no no no
Nobody knows
No no no no no no

Tomorrow I'll be there my friend
I'll wake up and start all over again
When everybody else is gone
No no no

Nobody knows
Nobody knows the rhythm of my heart
The way I do when I'm lying in the dark
And the world is asleep
I think nobody knows
Nobody knows
Nobody knows but me

[b]P!nk ~ Long way to happy[/b]

One night to you
Lasted six weeks for me
Just a bitter little pill now
Just to try to go to sleep
No more waking up to innocence
Say hello to hesitance
To everyone I meet
Thanks to you years ago
I guess I'll never know
What love means to me but oh
I'll keep on rolling down this road
But I've got a bad, bad feeling

It's gonna take a long time to love
It's gonna take a lot to hold on
It's gonna be a long way to happy, yeah
Left in the pieces that you broke me into
Torn apart but now I've got to
Keep on rolling like a stone
Cause it's gonna be a long long way to happy

Left my childhood behind
In a roll away bed
Everything was so damn simple
Now I'm losing my head
Trying to cover up the damage
And pad out all the bruises
too young to know i had it
So it didn't hurt to lose it
Didn't hurt to lose it
No but oh
I'll keep on rolling down this road
But I've got a bad, bad feeling

It's gonna take a long time to love
It's gonna take a lot to hold on
It's gonna be a long way to happy, yeah
Left in the pieces that you broke me into
Torn apart but now I've got to
Keep on rolling like a stone
Cause it's gonna be a long long way

Now I'm numb as hell and I can't feel a thing
But don't worry about regret or guilt cause I never knew your name
I just want to thank you
Thank you
From the bottom of my heart
For all the sleepless nights
And for tearing me apart yeah yeah

It's gonna take a long time to love
It's gonna take a lot to hold on
It's gonna be a long way to happy, yeah
Left in the pieces that you broke me into
Torn apart but now I've got to
Keep on rolling like a stone
Cause it's gonna be a long long way

It's gonna take a long time to love
It's gonna take a lot to hold on
It's gonna be a long, long, long, long way to happy, yeah
Left in the pieces that you broke me into
Torn apart but now I've got to
Keep on rolling like a stone
'cause it's gonna be a long long way to happy
