BIG WARNING!!!! VERY triggering!

:trigger::trigger::trigger::trigger::trigger::trigger::trigger::trigger::trigger::trigger:

She's been here so many times before

She can't remember

When she last felt anything at all

But this fear and anger

She stares intently at the door

Listens for his footsteps

She knows exactly what's in store

And the knowing makes it worse

floating high above her bed

staring at her father's head

wishing one of them were dead

So this hell could finally end

When he calls her daddy's little girl

She doesn't hear him

When he crushes her, she can't feel

Her screams are silent

Hides in the corners of her mind

Where she plays contently

She leaves this nightmare far behind

She escapes inside her dreams

There's a song called 'We Shall Overcome' by folk Pete Seeger which is based on an old gospel song. It's been covered by many artists over the years including Bruce Springsteen who released an entire album of Seeger covers also called 'We Shall Overcome'

One, two, three, four

Hey we shall overcome, we shall overcome

We shall overcome someday

Darlin' here in my heart, yeah I do believe

We shall overcome someday

Well we'll walk hand in hand, we'll walk hand in hand

We'll walk hand in hand someday

Darlin' here in my heart, yeah I do believe

We'll walk hand in hand someday

Well we shall live in peace, we shall live in peace

We shall live in peace someday

Darlin' here in my heart, yeah I do believe

We shall live in peace someday

Well we are not afraid, we are not afraid

We shall overcome someday

Yeah here in my heart, I do believe

We shall overcome someday

Hey we shall overcome, we shall overcome

We shall overcome someday

Darlin' here in my heart, I do believe

We shall overcome someday

So as I was getting ready for school this morning I heard this song, and all I could think was to put it on here. It's so perfect.

"Stronger Woman" Jewel

I guess you could say

I'm one of those girls

thats always been with one of those guys

you know the type

like right now

he sleeps while I write

it's better than crying

I'm warn out from trying

from loving a man who always makes it clear

I'm not welcome here

Just when he's hungry or frisky or needs something cleaned

you know what I mean

But not tonight

Cause come the morning light

I'm gonna love myself

More than anyone else

Believe in me

Even if someone can't see

The stronger woman in me

I'm gonna be my own best friend

Stick with me till the end

Won't lose myself again

never, no

Cause theres a stronger woman

a stronger woman in me

the light bulbs buzz I get up

head to my drawer

wish there was more

I could say

another fairy tale fades to gray

I've lived on hope

like a child

walking that mile

faking that smile

all the while

wishing my heart had wings

well from now on I'm gonna be

The kind of woman I want my daughter to be, oh

I'm gonna love myself

More than anyone else

Believe in me

Even if someone can't see

a stronger woman in me

I'm gonna be my own best friend,

Stick with me till the end

Won't lose myself again

Never, no

Cause there's a stronger woman, stronger woman

this is me, packing up my bags

this is me, headed for the door

this is me, the best you ever had

I'm gonna love myself

More than anyone else

Believe in me, even if someone can't see

The stronger woman in me

I'm gonna be my own best friend

stick with me till the end

Won't lose myself again

no no

Cause there's a stronger woman, a stronger woman

Theres a stronger woman in me, a stronger woman in me

stronger woman in me

This song gently reminds me that I survived what happened to me and I can move on from it now. It is all the other little things in life that are important.

Little Wonders by Rob Thomas

let it go,

let it roll right off your shoulder

don't you know

the hardest part is over

let it in,

let your clarity define you

in the end

we will only just remember how it feels

our lives are made

in these small hours

these little wonders,

these twists & turns of fate

time falls away,

but these small hours,

these small hours still remain

let it slide,

let your troubles fall behind you

let it shine

until you feel it all around you

and i don't mind

if it's me you need to turn to

we'll get by,

it's the heart that really matters in the end

our lives are made

in these small hours

these little wonders,

these twists & turns of fate

time falls away,

but these small hours,

these small hours still remain

all of my regret

will wash away some how

but i can not forget

the way i feel right now

in these small hours

these little wonders

these twists & turns of fate

these twists & turns of fate

time falls away but these small hours

these small hours, still remain,

still remain

these little wonders

these twists & turns of fate

time falls away

but these small hours

these little wonders still remain

"Beautiful Again" by Martina McBride

I hear this song, and it reminds me that there is beauty in our world:

She was only ten when her daddy got fired

He drank away the family home and left them all alone

And then her mommy was just too tired

So she got sent away

She moved in with her aunt in Arizona

Everything was fine until she told on Uncle Bill

When he said he only wanted to hold her

She had to run away

But when it rains, the past gets washed away, and then

She smiles 'cause she knows in the end

The world gets beautiful, beautiful again

Her boyfriend said I'm way too young to get married

But she made up her mind that somehow she was gonna

Find a way to keep that baby she carried

And he just walked away

But when it rains, the past gets washed away, and then

She smiles 'cause she knows in the end

The world gets beautiful, beautiful again

And when she's lying all alone

Thinkin' about her life she wonders

If she is wrong to believe in a better world

Then she sees her little girl

And she knows she is right 'cause

But when it rains, the past gets washed away, and then

She smiles 'cause she knows in the end

The world gets beautiful, beautiful again

I listened to this song over and over and over again after it happened. I sang it to myself. Still do.

Artist/Band: Swift Taylor

Lyrics for Song: Picture to Burn

To state the obvious,

I didn’t get my perfect fantasy

I realized you love yourself

More that you could ever love me

So go and tell your friends

That I’m obsessive and crazy,

That’s fine

I’ll tell mine

You’re gay,

And by the way,

I hate that stupid old pickup truck,

You never let me drive

You’re a redneck, heartbreak

Who’s really been a lie

So watch me strike a match

On all my wasted time

As far as I’m concerned,

You’re just another picture to burn.

There’s no time for tears

I’m just sitting here planning my revenge

There’s nothing stopping me

From going out with all of your best friends

And if you come around saying’ sorry to me

My daddy’s going to show you how sorry you’ll be

‘Cause I hate that stupid old pickup truck,

You never let me drive

You’re a redneck, heartbreak

Who’s really been a lie, yeah

So watch me strike a match

On all my wasted time

As far as I’m concerned,

You’re just another picture to burn.

And if you’re missing me

You better keep it to yourself

‘Cause coming back around here

Would be bad for your health

‘Cause I hate that stupid old pickup truck,

You never let me drive

You’re a redneck, heartbreak

Who’s really been a lie, yeah

So watch me strike a match

On all my wasted time

In case you haven’t heard,

I really, really hate that stupid old pickup truck,

You never let me drive

You’re a redneck, heartbreak

Who’s really been a lie, yeah

So watch me strike a match

On all my wasted time

As far as I’m concerned,

You’re just another picture to burn.

Burn, burn, burn, baby burn.

Just another picture to burn

Baby burn

I really like this one. It's how feel sometimes. Especially the opening lines, and a few others.

Fearless ~ Daechelle

Break it down let it all out

I'll give you my opinion

Walking around running my mouth

Cause I'm not about pretending

I talk tough calling your bluff

Don't tell me what I can't do

Don't ask me to ignore what in my heart I know is

True

(Yeah)

I never want to be predictable

I'm never gonna take the easy road

I never wanna’ follow where the

Ordinary ones have gone before

And that's why everyday I say it to myself

Be fearless and nothing is impossible

So fearless and know that you’re invincible

Be fearless prove the undeniable

Cause your so much stronger than you know

So let it go

It's crazy never been done

It's revolutionary

Don't phase me I won't run

Nothing you can say to scare me

Bring on fame I got game

See I was born for this part

Just have to start by following the voice inside my heart

(Yeah)

I never want to be predictable

I'm never gonna take the easy road

I never wanna’ follow where the

Ordinary ones have gone before

And that’s why everyday I say it to myself

Be fearless and nothing is impossible

So fearless and know that your invincible

Be fearless (fearless) prove the undeniable

Cause your so much stronger than you know

So let it go

Stand your ground be confident

The strength inside is heaven sent

Remember saints and heroes gone before

Be bold and be uncompromised

Stare it in your Demon’s eyes

Believe you can soar

You gotta’ be you gotta’ be

(Be fearless, fearless yeah)

You gotta be you gotta’ be

Be fearless, fearless yeah, yeah

I say it to myself

Be fearless and nothing is impossible

So fearless and know that you’re invincible

Be fearless (fearless) prove the undeniable

Cause your so much stronger than you know

So let it go

This is one that I play when I feel like I just can't go on...

Artist: Le Tigre

Song: Keep on Livin'

You hide inside, so not okay

(keep on, keep on livin')

What if you remember more today?

(keep on, keep on livin')

The phone keeps ringing, there's too much to say

(keep on, keep on livin')

You tell them to go when you wish they would stay

(keep on, keep on livin')

You gotta keep on (keep on livin!)

You gotta keep on (keep on livin!)

You gotta keep on (keep on livin!)

You gotta keep on (keep on livin!)

Disproportionate reactions just won't fade

(keep on, keep on livin')

Every dude you see puts you in a rage

(keep on, keep on livin')

Or stupid shit keeps making you cry

(keep on, keep on livin')

Your friends are worried you won't tell them why

(keep on, keep on livin')

You gotta keep on (keep on livin!)

You gotta keep on (keep on livin!)

You gotta keep on (keep on livin!)

You gotta keep on (keep on livin!)

Look up to the sky sky sky

Take back your own tonight

You'll find more than you see

It's time now now get ready

So you can taste that sweet sweet cake and

Feel the warm water in a lake (y'know)

What about the nice cool breeze and

Hear the buzzing of the bumble bees

Live past those neighborhood lives and

Go past that yard outside and

Push thru their greatest fears and

live past your memories tears cuz

You don't need to scratch inside just please

Hold onto your pride

So don't let them bring you down and

Don't let them fuck you around cuz

Those are your arms that is your heart and

No no they can't tear you apart cuz

This is your time this is your life and

This is your time this is your life and

This is your time this is your life and

This is your time this is your life and....

You gotta keep on(keep on livin!)

Gotta keep on(keep on livin!)

You gotta keep on(keep on livin!)

Gotta keep on(keep on livin!)

You gotta keep on(keep on livin!)

Gotta keep on(keep on livin!)

You gotta keep on(keep on livin!)

Gotta keep on(keep on livin!)

Erm.. So I know I'm a dude, but I heard this song and it touched me because I have a younger sister... it's not about the hurt that all of us have dealt with.. more about being a teenager, and growing up...

Jon McLaughlin- Beautiful Disaster

She loves her momma's lemonade

Hates the sounds that goodbyes make

She prays one day she'll find someone to need her

She swears that there's no difference between the lies and compliments

It's all the same if everybody leaves her

And every magazine tells her she's not good enough

The pictures that she sees makes her cry

She would change everything, everything, just ask her

Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster

She just needs someone to take her home

She's giving boys what they want

Tries to act so nonchalant

Afraid to see that she's lost her direction

She never stays the same for long

Assuming that she'll get it wrong

Perfect only in her imperfection

She's not a drama queen

She doesn't wanna feel this way

Only 17 and tired, yeah

She would change everything for happy ever after

Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster

She just needs someone to take her home

She's just the way she is

But no one's told her that's OK

She would change everything, everything, just ask her

Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster

She would change everything for happy ever after

Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster

She just needs someone to take her home

She just needs someone to take her home

I have two more songs to add. They both kind of support me to push through the tough times and motivate me to remember that he didn't take my life, so I should celebrate that and live it the way I always would have.

Warning: first song might be an SI trigger *T*

(1) Artist: Kimya Dawson

Song: Loose Lips

loose lips might sink ships but loose gooses take trips

to san francisco, double dutch disco,

tech tv hottie, do it for scotty

do it for the living and do it for the dead

do it for the monsters under your bed

do it for the teenagers and do it for your mom

broken hearts hurt but they make us strong and

we won't stop until somebody calls the cops

and even then we'll start again and just pretend that

nothing ever happened

we won't stop until somebody calls the cops

and even then we'll start again and just pretend that

nothing ever happened

we're just dancing, we're just hugging,

singing, screaming, kissing, tugging

on the sleeve of how it used to be

how's it gonna be?

i'll drop kick russell stover, move into the starting over house

and know matt rouse and jest are watching me achieve my dreams

and we'll pray, all damn day, every day,

that all this shit our president has got us in will go away

while we strive to figure out a way we can survive

these trying times without losing our minds

so if you wanna burn yourself remember that I LOVE YOU

and if you wanna cut yourself remember that I LOVE YOU

and if you wanna kill yourself remember that I LOVE YOU

call me up before your dead, we can make some plans instead

send me an IM, i'll be your friend

shysters live from scheme to scheme and my 4th quarter pipe dreams

are seeming more and more worth fighting for

so i'll curate some situations, make my job a big vacation

and i'll say FUCK BUSH AND FUCK THIS WAR

my war paint is sharpie ink and i'll show you how much my shit stinks

and ask you what you think because your thoughts and words are powerful

they think we're disposable, well both my thumbs opposable

are spelled out on a double word and triple letter score and

we won't stop until somebody calls the cops

and even then we'll start again and just pretend that

nothing ever happened

we won't stop until somebody calls the cops

and even then we'll start again and just pretend that

nothing ever happened

we won't stop until somebody calls the cops

and even then we'll start again and just pretend that

nothing ever happened

we won't stop until somebody calls the cops

and even then we'll start again and just pretend that

nothing ever happened

we're just dancing, we're just hugging,

singing, screaming, kissing, tugging

on the sleeve of how it used to be

(2) Artist - Martina McBride

Song - Anyway

You can spend your whole life building

Something from nothin'

One storm can come and blow it all away

Build it anyway

You can chase a dream

That seems so out of reach

And you know it might not ever come your way

Dream it anyway

God is great

But sometimes life ain't good

And when I pray

It doesn't always turn out like I think it should

But I do it anyway

I do it anyway

This world's gone crazy

It's hard to believe

That tomorrow will be better than today

Believe it anyway

You can love someone with all your heart

For all the right reasons

In a moment they can choose to walk away

Love 'em anyway

God is great

But sometimes life ain't good

And when I pray

It doesn't always turn out like I think it should

But I do it anyway

Yea - I do it anyway

You can pour your soul out singing

A song you believe in

That tomorrow they'll forget you ever sang

Sing it anyway

Yea, sing it anyway

Yeah, yeah!

I sing

I dream

I love anyway

The Fray- Fall Away

You swear you recall nothing at all

That could make you come back down

You made up your mind to leave it all behind

Now you're forced to fight it out

You fall away from your past

But it's following you

You fall away from your past

But it's following you

You left something undone, it's now your rerun

It's the one you can't erase

You should have made it right, so you wouldn't have to fight

To put a smile back on your face

You fall away from your past

But it's following you

You fall away from your past

But it's following you

You fall away

You fall away

Something I've done that I can't outrun

Something I've done that I can't outrun

Maybe you should wait maybe you should run

But there's something you've said that can't be undone

And you fall away from your past

But It's following you

You fall away from your past

But It's following you

You fall away from your past

But It's following you

You fall away from your past

But It's following you

You fall away

It's following you

You fall away

Start the Show by Don't Look Down. I love this song! To me, it's about someone hurting you, then you learn to accept it and move on...to start all over again. Just what I need most of the time! :P

Take care, Skye

Life's just not funny when your working yourself out

Get in or get out

I'm standing by myself

In a room, It's so crowded

Just let me out:

Just let me out

Been through it a thousand times before

(Been through it a thousand times before)

I won't regret this anymore

All the songs have been sung

All the wrongs have been done

Time now for

Me to go

Time now for

Start the show

Last Night I had a dream that I did not wake up

I lied in bed all night until my eyes would shut

I dreamed of you

(I dreamed of you [x3])

But I'm so different from the person that you once knew

Just let me out

Been through it a thousand times before

(Been through it a thousand times before)

I won't regret this anymore

All the songs have been sung

All the wrongs have been done

Time now for

Me to go

Time now for

Start the show

Start The Show!!..

Been through it a thousand times before

(Been through it a thousand times before)

I won't regret this anymore

All the songs have been sung

All the wrongs have been done

Time now for

Me to go

Time now for

Start the show

Another fav. Bravedancing by Rachel Sage

You came to me like lightning upon a picket fence

Shattering my illusion with shockingly bad sense

And I may never feel the same

But I won’t always feel this pain

So let faith fall on me now

I’m gonna be here ‘till the end

If you do not see me bend

Then you will know I have been brave dancing

You rain to me like ashes

Volcanoes come and go

You seem to have such passion

For someone so shallow

And I may never feel the same

But I refuse to play these games

So let faith fall on me now

I’m gonna be here ‘till the end

If you do not hear my voice

Then you’ll know I’ve had no choice

So let faith fall on me now

I’m gonna be my own best friend

If you do not see me bend

Then you will know I have been brave dancing

I see the moon about to bloom

Into thousands of bright yellow roses

And they’ll be spreading their light

Across the sky

And I wish my garden could grow this

When friendship is so frightening

It’s hard not to overthink

Kisses were like kite flying

I knew we’d sail or sink

And I may never feel the same

But you must see how much I’ve changed

So let faith fall on me now

I’m gonna be here till the end

Faith fall on me now

I’m gonna be my own godsend

If you do not hear my voice

Then you’ll know I’ve had no choice

So let faith fall on me now

I’m gonna be my own best friend

And if you do not see me bend

Then you will know I have been

If you do not see me bend

You will know where I have been brave dancing

Trevor Hall's lyrics really inspire me and generally make me feel better.

Song: "Jago Ma"

Won't you come alive

Won't you come alive

Wake me up inside

Won't you come alive

Open up my eyes

Open up my eyes

Shake my heart inside

Open up my eyes

Well I got a heart made of stone

Tell me will you be the one to break this mold

Shake my earth and rattle my bones

Break out of this chamber and carry me home

I've been sleeping for some years

Having no good dreams

Only scary nightmares

Wake me from this awful slumber

Strike me with your almighty thunder

Well a couple of mystics have described your form

Saying you can never die for you've never been born

Telling me you've come to kill all superstition

Put the needle upon the record

Show me what I've been missing

I need a love that'll swallow me whole

This ain't the first time I've tried to save my soul

I need a God in living form

You're all that I've got

Aim your weapon darling

Take your shot

Song: "To Zion"

To Zion

I fly on

Up with the sunrise

Breeze through the wind chimes

Open my eyes as the images rush my mind

Shine

Well baby, you're just in time

The water is in the kettle

The stars have just aligned

Within the hour

Oh we'll see the power

Never knew this tree could bloom so many flowers Yes I

Water the roots as I lace up my boots

Strap on my parachute and float on back to

To Zion

I fly on

Swallow the ocean

Drink of its potion

The wheels are turning and burning

Set it in motion

Fire Fire

Well baby I'm up in flames

These melodies are telling me to see it all the same

I am I

You are You

You are Me

We are We

Family on the road to unity

Plant the seed

Watch it sprout

Watch it grow

Watch it bloom

Get in tune

Sun and Moon

As we finally break through

To Zion

I fly on

Polish the mirror so we can see clearer

Push back the clouds and reflect love superior

Within the lotus, it all comes in focus

This love, it ain't hopeless

It's no hocus pocus

"I will survive" - Cake

At first I was afraid

I was petrified

I kept thinking I could never live without you

By my side

But then I spent so many nights

Just thinking how you've done me wrong

I grew strong

I learned how to get along

And so you're back

From outer space

I just walked in to find you

Here with that look upon your face

I should have changed my fucking lock

I would have made you leave your key

If I had known for just one second

You'd be back to bother me

Oh now go,

Walk out the door

Just turn around

Now, you're not welcome anymore

Weren't you the one

Who tried to break me with desire?

Did you think I'd crumble?

Did you think I'd lay down and die?

Oh not I,

I will survive

Yeah

As Long as I know how to love,

I know I'll be alive

I've got all my life to live

I've got all my love to give

I will survive,

I will survive

Yeah, yeah

It took all the strength I had

Just not to fall apart

I'm trying hard to mend the pieces

Of my broken heart

And I spent oh so many nights

Just feeling sorry for myself

I used to cry,

But now I hold my head up high

And you see me

With somebody new

I'm not that stupid little person

Still in love with you

And so you thought you'd just drop by

And you expect me to be free

But now I'm saving all my lovin'

For someone who's lovin' me

Oh now go,

Walk out the door

Just turn around

Now, you're not welcome anymore

Weren't you the one

Who tried to break me with desire?

Did you think I'd crumble?

Did you think I'd lay down and die?

Oh not I,

I will survive

Yeah

As long as I know how to love,

I know I'll be alive

I've got all my life to live

I've got all my love to give

I will survive,

I will survive

Yeah, yeah

Oh no

Lately I have been listening to Emilie Autumn, who I have to say has an amazing voice, a wide vocal range and is a great musician, composer and song writer. Although her lyrics are bit morbid and quirky.

When I want to let go of my rage I listen to her songs.

Song: Misery Loves Company

Do I need you?

Yes and no

Do I want you?

Maybe so

You're getting warm

You're getting warm

You're getting warmer oh

Did you plan this all along

Did you care if it was wrong

Who's getting warmer now

That I'm gone

This bit of the lyrics makes me think of my other half when he forcefully sodomises me.

~*~

Song: Gothic Lolita

This song reminds me the child like nature I have. I am not childish just playfully childlike. My other half never understood and told me infront of patrons at a resturant that I have the mental ability of a five year old and need to stop. Also my other half is ten years my senior.

How old are you?

I'm older than you'll ever be

I've been dead a thousand years

And lived only two or three

I don't mind telling you

My life was ended by your hand

The kind of murder where nobody dies

But I don't suppose you'd understand

Call off the search

We've found her

If I am Lolita

Then you are a criminal

And you should be killed

By an army of little girls

The law won't arrest you

The world won't detest you

You never did anything

Any man wouldn't do

I'm Gothic Lolita

And you are a criminal

I'm not even legal

I'm just a dead little girl

But ruffles and laces

And candy sweet faces

Directed your furtive hand

I perfectly understand

So it's my fault?

No, Gothic Lolita

Thank you, kind sirs

You've made me what I am today

A bundle of broken nerves

A mouthful of words I'm still afraid to say

I don't mind telling you

Now that I'm old enough to love

I couldn't begin to even if

My pretty life depended on it

And funny thing, it does

Call off the search

We've found her

If I am Lolita

Then you are a criminal

And you should be killed

By an army of little girls

The law won't arrest you

The world won't detest you

You never did anything

Any man wouldn't do

I'm Gothic Lolita

And you are a criminal

I'm not even legal

I'm just a dead little girl

But ruffles and laces

And candy sweet faces

Directed your furtive hand

I perfectly understand

So it's my fault?

No, Gothic Lolita

I am your sugar

I am your cream

I am your anti-American dream

I am your sugar

I am your cream

I am your worst nightmare

Now scream

If I am Lolita

Then you are a criminal

And you should be killed

By an army of little girls

The law won't arrest you

The world won't detest you

You never did anything

Any man wouldn't do

I'm Gothic Lolita

And you are a criminal

I'm not even legal

I'm just a dead little girl

But ruffles and laces

And candy sweet faces

Directed your furtive hand

I perfectly understand

So it's my fault?

No, Gothic Lolita

Some people think the song is about the Japanese fashion Gothic Lolita. But it is obvious about a girl that has been molested, it even mentions the character Lolita. (Gothic Lolita fashion consists of girls dressing up in dolly/victoriana costumes).

Song: I want my innocence back

I want my innocence back

And if you can't give it to me

I will cut you down

And I will run you through

With the dagger you sharpened

On my body and soul

Before you slit me in two

And then devoured me whole

I want my innocence back

I want my innocence back

I want my innocence back

I want my innocence back

And if you can't pacify me

I will break your bones

You think I'm bluffing, just try me

I will never forget

The words you used to ensnare me

Till my dying day

You'll suffer for this, I swear (I swear)

I want my innocence back

I want my innocence back

I want my innocence back

And I demand

You put my heart back in my hand

And wipe it clean

From the mess you made of me

And I require

You make me free from this desire

And when you leave, I'd better be the innocent

I used to be

I want my innocence back

I want my innocence back

I want my innocence back

This song is very dark and you can hear the rage in her voice.

The lyrics

I will never forget

The words you used to ensnare me

Till my dying day

Makes me think of what my other half says when he is abusing me verbally and sexually.

The songs has helped me.

Okay, normally Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montanna isn't my cup of tea but I saw the movie last night and was so struck by this song.

Miley Cyrus

The Climb

I can almost see it.

That dream I'm dreaming, but

There's a voice inside my head saying

You'll never reach it

Every step I'm takin'

Every move I make

Feels lost with no direction,

My faith is shakin'

But I gotta keep tryin'

Gotta keep my head held high

There's always gonna be another mountain

I'm always gonna wanna make it move

Always gonna be an uphill battle

Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there

Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side

It's the climb

The struggles I'm facing

The chances I'm taking

Sometimes might knock me down, but

No I'm not breaking

I may not know it, but

These are the moments that

I'm gonna remember most

LyricsI've just gotta keep goin', and

I gotta be strong

Just keep pushing on, but

There's always gonna be another mountain

I'm always gonna wanna make it move

Always gonna be an uphill battle

Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there

Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side

It's the climb

There's always gonna be another mountain

I'm always gonna wanna make it move

Always gonna be an uphill battle

Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there

Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side

It's the climb

Keep on movin'

Keep climbin'

Keep faith baby

It's all about, it's all about

The climb

Keep the faith, keep your faith, woah

This is a song by The Who, but I like Sheryl Crow's version better. Read the whole thing, it is about a survivor, not an abuser.

"Behind Blue Eyes" Sheryl Crow (The Who)

No one knows what it's like

To be the bad man

To be the sad man

Behind blue eyes

No one knows what it's like

To be hated

To be fated

To telling only lies

But my dreams

They aren't as empty

As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely

My love is vengeance

That's never free

No one knows what it's like

To feel these feelings

Like I do

And I blame you

No one bites back as hard

On their anger

None of my pain and woe

Can show through

But my dreams

They aren't as empty

As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely

My love is vengeance

That's never free

When my fist clenches, crack it open

Before I use it and lose my cool

When I smile, tell me some bad news

Before I laugh and act like a fool

If I swallow anything evil

Put your finger down my throat

If I shiver, please give me a blanket

Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

No one knows what it's like

To be the bad man

To be the sad man

Behind blue eyes

Do you wake up in the morning and need help to lift your head?

Do you read obituaries and feel jealous of the dead?

It's like living on a cliffside not knowing when you'll dive.

Do you know, do you know what it's like to die alive?

When the world that once had color fades to white and gray and black.

When tomorrow terrifies you, but you'll die if you look back.

You don't know.

I know you don't know.

You say that you're hurting, it sure doesn't show.

You don't know.

You tell me let go.

And you may say so, but I say you don't know.

The sensation that you're screaming, but you never make a sound.

Or the feeling that you're falling, but you never hit the ground.

It just keeps on rushing at you day by day by day by day.

You don't know, you don't know what it's like to live that way.

Like a refugee, a fugitive, forever on the run.

If it gets me it will kill me, but I don't know what I've done.

One of my favorite songs of all time is Mad World by Gary Jules. I've listened to it for about 5 years whenever I was feeling down. Here are the lyrics:

Mad World

Gary Jules (cover of Tears for Fears)

All around me are familiar faces

Worn out places, worn out faces

Bright and early for their daily races

Going nowhere, going nowhere

Their tears are filling up their glasses

No expression, no expression

Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow

No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kind of funny

I find it kind of sad

The dreams in which I'm dying

Are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you

I find it hard to take

When people run in circles

It's a very, very

Mad World

Mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good

Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday

And I feel the way that every child should

Sit and listen, sit and listen

Went to school and I was very nervous

No one knew me, no one knew me

Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson

Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kind of funny

I find it kind of sad

The dreams in which I'm dying

Are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you

I find it hard to take

When people run in circles

It's a very, very

Mad World

Mad World

Enlarging your world

Mad World.

I have been listening to this song a lot lately. I think it is hauntingly beautiful. It is also in a fund-raising/public service add for the humane society.

My Skin by Natalie Merchant

Take a look at my body

Look at my hands

There's so much here

That I don't understand

Your face saving promises

Whispered like prayers

I don't need them

I don't need them

I've been treated so wrong

I've been treated so long

As if I'm becoming untouchable

Contempt loves the silence

It thrives in the dark

With fine winding tendrils

That strangle the heart

They say that promises

Sweeten the blow

But I don't need them

No, I don't need them

I've been treated so wrong

I've been treated so long

As if I'm becoming untouchable

I'm a slow dying flower

Frost killing hour

The sweet turning sour

And untouchable

O, I need

The darkness

The sweetness

The sadness

The weakness

I need this

I need

A lullaby

A kiss goodnight

Angel sweet

Love of my life

O, I need this

Do you remember the way

That you touched me before

All the trembling sweetness

I loved and adored?

Your face saving promises

Whispered like prayers

I don't need them

No, I don't need them

O, I need

The darkness

The sweetness

The sadness

The weakness

I need this

I need

A lullaby

A kiss goodnight

The angel sweet

Love of my life

I need this

Is it dark enough?

Can you see me?

Do you want me?

Can you reach me?

Or I'm leaving

You better shut your mouth

Hold your breath

Kiss me now you'll catch my death

O, I mean it
