LUPE FIASCO- INTRUDER ALERT

Verse 1

She said that there was no love in her heart

Cause one day a rapist attacked her and broke

That all apart

She said there was no way to fix it

Or to cover her scars

Then one day a guy came along that

Probably could help her start

He was sincere made her believe it was safe

For her to trust again

Before long she was cool to giving hugs to him

Knew that it was right cause somethin was wrong

The alarms in her mind didn't tell her he didn't belong

There was no

[Chorus:]

Intruder [x4]

Alert [x4]

CHEVELLE- PANIC PRONE

Gave in Again

The bastard

Can't keep refusing rights

So he'll loan the cash

But the sin

Is on the hands of you

[Chorus:]

So to care or

Plead silence, weak hands are calling

There's close enough

And there's too far

It won't change an empty stare

But I can't seem to end

These images

Hauntingly looks like hell

[Chorus]

Come, Enter the foreign.

Face, All that's shameful.

Cheat, May the past find

Out; Separating...

[Chorus]

To end this catastrophic scene awake and breathe in

this is a song i really like. it really describes the mask that i often hide behind and how it feels to know that God sees who i really am with no pretending.

Natalie Grant- the real me...

Foolish heart looks like we're here again

Same old game of plastic smile

Don't let anybody in

Hiding my heartache, will this glass house break

How much will they take before I'm empty

Do I let it show, does anybody know?

[Chorus:]

But you see the real me

Hiding in my skin, broken from within

Unveil me completely

I'm loosening my grasp

There's no need to mask my frailty

Cause you see the real me

Painted on, life is behind a mask

Self-inflicted circus clown

I'm tired of the song and dance

Living a charade, always on parade

What a mess I've made of my existence

But you love me even now

And still I see somehow

But you see the real me

Hiding in my skin, broken from within

Unveil me completely

I'm loosening my grasp

There's no need to mask my frailty

Cause you see the real me

Wonderful, beautiful is what you see

When you look at me

You're turning the tattered fabric of my life into

A perfect tapestry

I just wanna be me

But you see the real me

Hiding in my skin, broken from within

Unveil me completely

I'm loosening my grasp

There's no need to mask my frailty

Cause you see the real me

And you love me just as I am

Wonderful, beautiful is what you see

When you look at me

I was reading this while awaiting my account activation. I find music has been one of my biggest comforts, it helps to get emotions out that sometimes just can't be verbalized.

Alive - Jennifer Lopez (This is my favorite)

Time goes slowly now in my life

Fear no more of what I'm not sure

Searching to feel your soul

The strength to stand alone

the power of not knowing and letting go

I guess I've found my way it's simple when its right

Feeling lucky just to be here tonight

and happy just to be me and be alive.

Love, in and out, of my... my heart,

And though life can be strange I can't be afraid

Searching to feel your soul, the strength to stand alone,

The power of not knowing and letting go

I guess I've found my way it's simple when it's right

Feeling lucky just to be here tonight

and happy just to be me and be alive

I guess I've found my way it's simple

when its right feeling lucky just to be here tonight and

happy just to be me and to be alive.

Skyscaper - Demi Lovato

Skies are crying

I am watching

Catching teardrops in my hands

Only silence as it's ending, like we never had a chance

Do you have to, make me feel like there is nothing left of me?

You can take everything I have

You can break everything I am

Like i'm made of glass

Like i'm made of paper

Go on and try to tear me down

I will be rising from the ground

Like a skyscraper!

Like a skyscraper!

As the smoke clears

I awaken, and untangle you from me

Would it make you, feel better to watch me while I bleed?

All my windows, still are broken

But I'm standing on my feet

You can take everything I have

You can break everything I am

Demi Lovato Skyscraper lyrics found on http://www.directlyrics.com/demi-lovato-skyscraper-lyrics.html

Like I'm made of glass

Like I'm made of paper

Go on and try to tear me down

I will be rising from the ground

Like a skyscraper!

Like a skyscraper!

Go run, run, run

I'm gonna stay right here

Watch you disappear, yeah

Go run, run, run

Yeah it's a long way down

But I am closer to the clouds up here

You can take everything I have

You can break everything I am

Like I'm made of glass

Like I'm made of paper, Oh

Go on and try to tear me down

I will be rising from the ground

Like a skyscraper!

Like a skyscraper!

Like a skyscraper!

Like a skyscraper!

Believe In Me - Demi Lovato

I'm losing myself

Trying to compete

With everyone else

Instead of just being me

Don't know where to turn

I've been stuck in this routine

I need to change my ways

Instead of always being weak

I don't wanna be afraid

I wanna wake up feeling beautiful..today

And know that I'm okay

Cause everyone's perfect in unusual ways

So you see, I just wanna believe in me

The mirror can lie

Doesn't show you what's inside

And it, it can tell you you're full of life

It's amazing what you can hide

Just by putting on a smile

I'm quickly finding out

I'm not about to break down

Not today

I guess I always knew

That I had all the strength to make it through

Not gonna be afraid

I'm going to wake up feeling beautiful..today

And know that I'm okay

Cause everyone's perfect in unusual ways

So you see, now, now I believe in me

Now I believe in me

I love this song... the Deftones have always been "that" band with music that always seems to find me when I need comfort and support. This song is like my boyfriend (haha), it makes me feel beautiful and happy to be alive :) and that I'm not alone in all of this!

Deftones - Beauty School

I like you when,

when you take off your face

you put away all your teeth

and take us way underneath

'cause you could die if you take it alone

I watch you taste it

I see your face, and I know I'm alive

you're shooting stars from the barrel of your eyes

and it drives me crazy, just drives me wild

I kind of like you when,

when you make up the reel

take the phone in your room

stop the tape or resume

well you could try if you think it will load

I watch you taste it

I see your face, and I know I'm alive

you're shooting stars from the barrel of your eyes

and it drives me crazy, it drives me wild

everytime, everytime you try

ride, it's a beautiful ride

why, it's a beautiful ride

I watch you taste it

I see your face, and I know I'm alive

you're shooting stars from the barrel of your eyes

and it drives me crazy, it drives me wild

**May trigger**

This song from Carrie Underwood is not really a healing song but it reminds me of the past because of the words "house of sins" especially even though she is not talking about CSA. I like upbeat songs so I like it.

"Blown Away"

Dry lightning cracks across the skies

Those storm clouds gather in her eyes

Her daddy was a mean old mister

Mama was an angel in the ground

The weather man called for a twister

She prayed blow it down

There's not enough rain in Oklahoma

To wash the sins out of that house

There's not enough wind in Oklahoma

To rip the nails out of the past

[Chorus:]

Shatter every window 'til it's all blown away,

Every brick, every board, every slamming door blown away

'Til there's nothing left standing, nothing left of yesterday

Every tear-soaked whiskey memory blown away,

Blown away

She heard those sirens screaming out

Her daddy laid there passed out on the couch

She locked herself in the cellar

Listened to the screaming of the wind

Some people call it taking shelter

She called it sweet revenge

[Chorus:]

Shatter every window 'til it's all blown away,

Every brick, every board, every slamming door blown away

'Til there's nothing left standing, nothing left of yesterday

Every tear-soaked whiskey memory blown away,

Blown away

There's not enough rain in Oklahoma

To wash the sins out of that house

There's not enough wind in Oklahoma

To rip the nails out of the past

Shatter every window 'til it's all blown away (blown away)

Every brick, every board, every slamming door blown away (blown away)

'Til there's nothing left standing, nothing left of yesterday (blown away)

Every tear-soaked whiskey memory blown away,

Blown away, blown away, blown away, blown away, blown away

Her Diamonds by Rob Thomas always reminds me of the time when I was just a secondary survivor. Even though it was written about his wife having cancer, it still holds true for most every debilitating experience. I understand it better now that it's happened to me. I'm also posting Sara Evans' Stronger, because I had that looped like, continuously just after my fiance and I broke up.

"Her Diamonds"

Oh what the hell she said

I just can't win for losing

And she lays back down

Man there's so many times

I don't know what I'm doing

Like I don't know now

By the light of the moon

She rubs her eyes

Says it's funny how the night

Can make you blind

I can just imagine

And I don't know what I'm supposed to do

But if she feels bad then i do too

So I let her be

And she says oh

I can't take no more

Her tears like diamonds on the floor

And her diamonds bring me down

Cause I can't help her now

She's down in it

She tried her best but now she can't win it

Hard to see them on the ground

Her diamonds falling down

She sits down and stares into the distance

And it takes all night

And i know i could break her concentration

But it don't feel right

By the light of the moon

She rubs her eyes

Sits down on the bed and starts to cry

And there's something less about her

And I don't know what I'm supposed to do

So I sit down and I cry too

And don't let her see

And she says oh

I can't take no more

Her tears like diamonds on the floor

And her diamonds bring me down

Cause I can't help her now

She's down in it

She tried her best but now she can't win it

Hard to see them on the ground

Her diamonds falling down

She shuts out the night

Tries to close her eyes

If she can find daylight

She'll be alright

She'll be alright

Just not tonight

And she says oh

I can't take no more

Her tears like diamonds on the floor

And her diamonds bring me down

Cause I can't help her now

She's down in it

She tried her best but now she can't win it

Hard to see them on the ground

Her diamonds falling down

"A Little Bit Stronger"

Woke up late today, and I still feel the sting of the pain.

But I brushed my teeth anyway, got dressed through the mess and put a smile on my face.

I got a little bit stronger.

Riding in the car to work, and I'm trying to ignore the hurt.

So I turned on the radio, Stupid song made me think of you,

I listened to it for minute, but then I changed it.

I'm getting a little bit stronger, just a little bit stronger.

And I'm done hoping that we can work it out,

I'm done with how it feels, spinning my wheels

Letting you drag my heart around.

And ohhh

I'm done thinking, that you could ever change.

I know my heart will never be the same,

but I'm telling myself I'll be okay.

Even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger.

Doesn't happen over night, but you turn around and a months gone by,

And you realize you haven't cried.

I'm not giving you a hour or a second or another minute longer.

I'm busy getting stronger.

And I'm done hoping that we can work it out,

I'm done with how it feels, spinning my wheels

Letting you drag my heart around.

And ohhh

I'm done thinking, that you could ever change.

I know my heart will never be the same,

but I'm telling myself I'll be okay.

Even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger.

I get a little bit stronger.

Getting along without you baby,

I'm better off without you baby,

How does it feel with out me baby?

I'm getting stronger without you baby.

And I'm done hoping that we can work it out,

I'm done with how it feels, spinning my wheels

Letting you drag my heart around.

And ohhh

I'm done thinking, that you could ever change.

I know my heart will never be the same,

but I'm telling myself I'll be okay,

Even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger.

I get a little bit stronger.

I'm just a little bit stronger.

A little bit, a little bit, a little bit stronger.

I get a little bit stronger.

This is only a short lyric from a longer song but it is a good reminder of what I should always be doing. "Be good to yourself 'cause nobody else has the power to make you happy." -George Michael

This is by Sara Groves. I got it in a Beyond the Silence abuse support group at church using the Into the Wildflowers workbook. It is a healing song.

Just Showed Up For My Own Life :

Spending my time sleep walking

Moving my mouth but not saying a thing

Hoping the changes would take by working their way from the outside in

I was in love with an idea

Preoccupied with how a life should appear

Spending my time at the surface repairing the holes in the shiny veneer

There are so many ways to hide

There are so many ways not to feel

There are so many ways to deny what is real

And I just showed up for my own life

And I'm standing here taking it in and it sure looks bright

I'm going to live my life inspired

Look for the holy in the common place

Open the windows and feel all that's honest and real until I'm truly amazed

I'm going to feel all my emotions

I'm going to look you in the eyes

I'm going to listen and hear until it's finally clear and it changes our lives

There are so many ways to hide

There are so many ways not to feel

There are so many ways to deny what is real

And I just showed up for my own life

And I'm standing here taking it in and it sure looks bright

Oh the glory of God is man fully alive

Oh the glory of God is man fully alive

There are so many ways to hide

There are so many ways not to feel

There are so many ways to deny what is real

And I just showed up for my own life

And I'm standing here taking it in and it sure looks bright

Hey guys, new to the site (1st post). Music has been one of my few allies in recovering. Here are the songs that are helping me get through it:

*Note: I don't know if these are going to be triggering for some or not. But they give me strength and make me feel less alone.

PASSENGER "NEEDLE IN THE DARK"

With progress comes problems

With wisdom comes age

With lessons come learning

And pleasure comes with pain

You can only have the sunshine after the rain

I took a walk

It got me thinking

Left foot right foot

Smiling blinking

Breathe out breathe in

Somehow linking

My soul to my mind and my heart to my mouth

Lost and the found and the north to the south

And the corners to the circle in my mind

You may find that the gate has been locked

When we come back down to what we really are

Retrace the footprints off the path that is lost

It's like trying to find a needle in the dark

My hands they are empty

but they are clean

I'm poor but I'm healthy

I'm halfway between

The gutter and the skyline

I took a walk to the land's end

Find More lyrics at www.sweetslyrics.com

Thinking ‘bout an ex-girlfriend that I had

And the pages that I've turned

And it seems to me

That we all love the chase

But once we're caught we feel encased

Behind bars of love and trust

Uprooted by drunken lust

By people people just like us

people people just like us

You may find that the gate has been locked

When we come back down to what we really are

Retrace the footprints off the path that is lost

It's like trying to find a needle in the dark

I took a walk to the station

Lost in my imagination

Having private conversations with myself

And I'm stumbling ‘round

And I wait for the sound

Of this crumbling town to come tumbling down

People say I'm just bummin' around

But I've had both my ears to the ground

BEACH HOUSE "TAKE CARE"

Stand beside it, we can't hide the way it makes us glow

It's no good unless it grows, feel this burning love of mine

Deep inside the ever-spinning, tell me does it feel

It's no good unless it's real, hill sides burning

Wild-eyed turning till we're running from it

I'd take care of you if you'd ask me to

In a year or two

You say swimming in the lake we'll come across a snake

It is real and then it's fake, feel it's heartbeat

Feel what you heat, far so fast it feels too late

I'd take care of you if you'd ask me to

In a year or two

I'll take care of you, take care of you, that's true...

DONKEYBOY "AMBITIONS"

Now, I can't behave

I feel it in my feet on the streets

But don't you know?

There's something I can feel when I breathe

I told you once

You're breaking into separate parts

But don't you know?

It's something that I can't live without

And if somebody's going to make it

then this somebody ought to be you

And I keep telling my reflection

Ambitions are already starting to fade

I can't tolerate

The feelings that I feel when I feel

But don't you know?

Some feelings never seem to let go

Like a silverblade

I cut my way out of control

But don't you know?

Some blades will cut you right to the bone

And if somebody's going to make it

then this somebody ought to be you

And if somebody's going to fake it

then this somebody, somebody is you

If it's me that was going to take it

then I know that it wouldn't be straight

And I keep telling my reflection

Ambitions are already starting to fade

I Can't tolerate...

(Can't tolerate)

I Can't tolerate...

(Can't tolerate)

You Gotta Be by Des'ree

Listen as your day unfolds

Challenge what the future holds

Try and keep your head up to the sky

Lovers, they may cause you tears

Go ahead release your fears

Stand up and be counted

Don't be ashamed to cry

You gotta be

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold

You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard

You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger

You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm

You gotta stay together

All I know, all I know, love will save the day

Herald what your mother said

Readin' the books your father read

Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time

Some may have more cash than you

Others take a different view

My oh my heh, hey

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold

You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard

You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger

You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm

You gotta stay together

All I know, all I know, love will save the day

Don't ask no questions, it goes on without you

Leaving you behind if you can't stand the pace

The world keeps on spinning

You can't stop it, if you try to

This time it's danger staring you in the face

Oh oh oh Remember

Listen as your day unfolds

Challenge what the future holds

Try and keep your head up to the sky

Lovers, they may cause you tears

Go ahead release your fears

My oh my heh, hey, hey

You gotta be

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold

You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard

You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger

You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm

You gotta stay together

All I know, all I know, love will save the day

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold

You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard

You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger

You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm

You gotta stay together

All I know, all I know, love will save the day

I started typing the lyrics for "Perfect" and then accidentally hit "post" before I was done, so ignore this.

The lyrics are in the post below this one.

I've been listening to this a lot, and it has really helped me!

PERFECT (By Pink)

Verse 1:

Made a wrong turn once or twice.

Dug my way out, blood and fire.

Bad decisions, that's alright.

Welcomed to my silly life.

Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood.

There's no way it's all good.

It didn't slow me down.

Mistaken, always second guessing.

Underestimated, look I'm still around.

Chorus:

Pretty, pretty please, don't you ever, ever feel

like you're less than, less than perfect.

Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel

like you're nothing; you are perfect to me.

Verse 2:

You're so mean when you talk about yourself.

You were wrong.

Change the voices in your head.

Make them like you instead.

So complicated, look how we all made it.

Filled with so much hatred; such a tired game.

It's enough; I've done all I can think of,

chased down all my demons.

Say you'll do the same.

Demi Lovato

"Let It Go"

Let it go, let it go

Can't hold it back anymore

Let it go, let it go

Turn my back and slam the door

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight,

Not a footprint to be seen.

A kingdom of isolation and it looks like I'm the queen.

The wind is howling like the swirling storm inside.

Couldn't keep it in, heaven knows I tried.

Don't let them in, don't let them see,

Be the good girl you always had to be.

Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know.

Well now they know.

Let it go, let it go

Can't hold it back anymore

Let it go, let it go

Turn my back and slam the door

And here I stand and here I'll stay

Let it go, let it go

The cold never bothered me anyway

It's funny how some distance makes everything seem small

And the fears that once controlled me can't get to me at all.

Up here in the cold thin air I finally can breathe.

I know I left a life behind but I'm too relieved to grieve.

Let it go, let it go

Can't hold it back anymore

Let it go, let it go

Turn my back and slam the door

And here I stand, and here I'll stay

Let it go, let it go

The cold never bothered me anyway

Standing frozen

In the life I've chosen.

You won't find me.

The past is all behind me

Buried in the snow.

Let it go, let it go

Can't hold it back anymore

Let it go, let it go

Turn my back and slam the door

And here I stand, and here I'll stay

Let it go, let it go

The cold never bothered me anyway, yeah, whoa

(Na na, na na, na na na na) [4x]

Let it go

Na, na.

Here I stand.

Let it go, let it go, oh

Let it go.
