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 Edited by NailPolish

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.

[b]Little Wonders by Rob Thomas[/b]

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.

Break it down let it all out

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

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

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

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

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 Edited by lostwaif

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
[b]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[/b]

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!) Edited by pcmva

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 [b]remember that I LOVE YOU[/b]
and if you wanna cut yourself [b]remember that I LOVE YOU[/b]
and if you wanna kill yourself [b]remember that I LOVE YOU[/b]
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 [b]your thoughts and words are powerful[/b]
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

[b]This world's gone crazy
It's hard to believe
That tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway[/b]

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

[quote]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[/quote]

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.

[u]Song:[/u][b][/b] Misery Loves Company

[quote]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[/quote]

This bit of the lyrics makes me think of my other half when he forcefully sodomises me.
[center]~*~[/center]

[u]Song:[/u][b][/b] 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.

[quote]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[/quote]

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).

[b]Song:[/b][u][/u] I want my innocence back

[quote]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[/quote]

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

The lyrics [quote]I will never forget
The words you used to ensnare me
Till my dying day[/quote]

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.

[quote]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[/quote]

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
[b]
I've been treated so wrong
I've been treated so long
As if I'm becoming untouchable[/b]

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
