Healing songs/lyrics #2

315 posts in this topic

I like the lyrics, I don't overly like the format they are performed in (except for Numb): Linkin Park

Somewhere I Belong

When this began

I had nothing to say

And I'd get lost in the nothingness inside of me

I was confused

And I let it all out to find/That I'm

Not the only person with these things in mind

Inside of me

But all the vacancy the words revealed

Is the only real thing that I've got left to feel

Nothing to lose

Just stuck/Hollow and alone

And the fault is my own

And the fault is my own

I want to heal

I want to feel

What I thought was never real

I want to let go of the pain I've held so long

[Erase all the pain 'til it's gone]It's gone]

I want to heal

I want to feel

Like I'm close to something real

I want to find something I've wanted all along

Somewhere I Belong

And I've got nothing to say

I can't believe I didn't fall right down on my face

I was confused

Looking everywhere/Only to fin that it's

Not the way I had imagined it all in my mind

So what am I

What do I have but negativity

'Cause I can't justify the

Way everyone is looking at me

Nothing to lose

Nothing to gain/Hollow and alone

And the fault is my own

The fault is my own

I will never know

Myself until I do this on my own

And I will never feel

Anything else until my wounds are healed

I will never be

Anything 'til I break away from me

And I will break away

I'll find myself today

I want to heal

I want to feel like I'm

Somewhere I belong

Easier to Run

It's easier to run

Replacing this pain with something numb

It's so much easier to go

Than face all this pain here all alone

Something has been taken

From deep inside of me

A secret I've kept locked away

No one can ever see

Wounds so deep they never show

They never go away

Like moving pictures in my head

For years and years they've played

If I could change I would

Take back the pain I would

Retrace every wrong move that I made I would

If I could

Stand up and take the blame I would

If I could take all the shame to the grave I

Would

Sometimes I remember

The darkness of my past

Bringing back these memories

I wish I didn't have

Sometimes I think of letting go

And never looking back

And never moving forward so

There would never be a past

Just washing it aside

All of the helplessness inside

Pretending I don't feel misplaced

Is so much simpler than change

It's easier to run

Replacing this pain with something numb

It's so much easier to go

Than face all this pain here all alone

And last but not least ;)

Breaking The Habit

Memories consume

Like opening the wound

I'm picking me apart again

You all assume

I'm safe here in my room

[unless I try to start again]

I don't want to be the one

The battles always choose

Cause inside I realize

That i'm the one confused

I don't know what's worth fighting for

Or why I have to scream

I don't know why I instigate

And say what I don't mean

I don't know how I got this way

I know it's not alright

So I'm breaking the habit

Tonight

Clutching my cure

I tightly lock the door

I try to catch my breath again

I hurt much more

Than anytime before

I had no options left again

I'll paint it on the walls

'Cause i'm the one at fault

I'll never fight again

And this is how it ends

I don't know what's worth fighting for

Or why I have to scream

But now I have some clarity

To show you what I mean

I don't know how I got this way

I'll never be alright

So I'm breaking the habit

Breaking the Habit

Tonight

Have you noticed that some songs can have a huge effect on your emotions? Does anyone have a song like this to share?

When I first broke up with my boyfriend and was feeling kind of depressed, I found myself playing this song frequently in my car. I totally recommend downloading it - it never failed to make me feel like I didn't have a care in the world.

Sheryl Crow

Soak Up the Sun

My friend the communist

Holds meetings in his RV

I can't afford his gas

So I'm stuck here watching TV

I don't have digital

I don't have diddly squat

It's not having what you want

It's wanting what you've got

(CHORUS)

I'm gonna soak up the sun

I'm gonna tell everyone

To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)

I've got no one to blame

For every time I feel lame

I'm looking up

I'm gonna soak up the sun

I'm gonna soak up the sun

(VERSE)

I've got a crummy job

It don't pay near enough

To buy the things it takes

To win me some of your love

Every time I turn around

I'm looking up, you're looking down

Maybe something's wrong with you

That makes you act the way you do

Maybe I am crazy too

(CHORUS)

I'm gonna soak up the sun

I'm gonna tell everyone

To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)

I've got no one to blame

For every time I feel lame

I'm looking up

I'm gonna soak up the sun

Before it goes out on me

(CHORUS)

I'm gonna soak up the sun

I'm gonna tell everyone

To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)

I've got no one to blame

For every time I feel lame

I'm looking up

(CHORUS)

I'm gonna soak up the sun

I'm gonna tell everyone

To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)

I've got no one to blame

For every time I feel lame

I'm looking up

(END)

I'm gonna soak up the sun

Got my 45 on

So I can rock on

Oh Lis...I think music has been one of my singular biggest healing aids.

One of my most empowering songs:

"Feeling Good" - Nina Simone

and I'll come back and write the words when I'm less friday-night boozy, but anyone who knows it will know how joyous a celebration of life it is.

Edith Piaf's "Non, Je ne regrette Rien" is another favourite but I won't write the lyrics 'cuz it's all French, but the title means "No, I have no regrets" and it's female lustiness and guts makes me soar.

Lis,

Love Shack by the B 52s always always lifts my mood and makes me smile, no matter if I've heard it 75,432,983 times in my life or more.  My kids and I have a "rule" that we HAVE to stop whatever we are doing and dance when Love Shack comes on...no matter where we are.  LOL.  

Still works.  ;)

Hey Lou,

I'm helping you by posting for you the lyrics of Edith Piaf :

Non, rien de rien

Non, je ne regrette rien

Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait, ni le mal

Tout ça m'est bien égal

Non, rien de rien

Non, je ne regrette rien

C'est payé, balayé, oublié

Je me fous du passé

Avec mes souvenirs

J'ai allumé le feu

Mes chagrins, mes plaisirs

Je n'ai plus besoin d'eux

Balayés mes amours

Avec leurs trémolos

Balayés pour toujours

Je repars à zéro

Non, rien de rien

Non, je ne regrette rien

Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait, ni le mal

Tout ça m'est bien égal

Non, rien de rien

Non, je ne regrette rien

Car ma vie

Car mes joies

Aujourd'hui

Ça commence avec toi...

this may sound really wierd but the Aqua (aquarium) CD from like 1997 is the best pick me up CD ever it is sooo goofy it is guarenteed to make you smile in my oppinon...it is like bubble gummy pop and stuff and our guards theme song 'barbie girl' cuze we all dance like barbie dolls according to brad our coach when we were learning some wacky spin on flag with a dance move.  Lis- we have a conert band/marching band alliance wehre they come to the games with us and we do a concert fromat show at half time (we stand on the field in lines) and we did that as one of our songs and it was the funnest thing ever cuze it was a song that people actually recgniozed

For those who don't speak French, I translated the Piaf song (don't shoot, I'm an amateur).

No, nothing of nothing

No, I regret nothing

Not the good done to me, nor the bad

It's all OK with me

No, nothing of nothing

No, I regret nothing

It's paid, swept away, forgotten

To hell with the past

With my memories

I've lit the fire

My troubles, my pleasures

I have no mre need for them

Swept away are my loves

With their 'anxieties' (sorry, a little unsure of that word)

Swept away forever

I start again from zero

No, nothing of nothing

No, I regret nothing

Not the good done to me, nor the bad

It's all OK with me

No, nothing of nothing

No, I regret nothing

For my life

For my joys

Today

It begins with you.

Heather Nova

I'm Alive

Your hands were covered in paint

The pillow smothered my cry

You were half charmer half snake

I lived in dreamtime

But I'm alive

I survived you

And the bitter taste

The years I wasted

All the hate is gone

'Cause I'm alive

Some nights I'd sleep in the car

Just to escape you

You drove devotion too far

No-one could save you

But I'm alive

I survived you

And the bitter taste

The years I wasted

All the hate is gone

'Cause I'm alive

I still have visions of you

I still have nights to get through

And when the trust isn't true

I have these visions of you

I have these visions of you

And I'm alive

I survived you

And the bitter taste

The years I wasted

All the hate is gone

'Cause I'm alive

I'm alive

I'm alive

Ride on and fade away

I'm alive

There's nothing more to say

I'm alive

Ride on and fade away

I'm alive

There's nothing more to say

I'm alive

Ride on and fade away

And the bitter taste

The years I wasted

All the hate is gone

You Sweet Thing

when the night feels long

and the darkness feels thicker than your blood

when the sky upstairs is black and strong

go, leave your keys, you sweet thing, go on

when the night wears on

and the moon is freezing like your fingers in your gloves

when the sky upstairs is holding strong

go on, leave your keys, you sweet thing, go on

careful what you wish and on what star

your soul will sound just the same

careful what you wish and just how far

you let it lead you

'til you find you can so simply go on

now the clouds carry on

cause the sky upstairs has danced from dusk to dawn

and the light outside is gorgeous blonde

go on, leave your keys, you sweet thing, go on

Dido

All You Want

I'd like to watch you sleep at night,

to hear you breathe by my side

And although sleep leaves me behind,

there's nowhere I'd rather be

And now our bed is oh so cold,

my hands feel empty, no-one to hold

I can sleep what side I want,

it's not the same with you gone

Oh if you'd come home, I'll let you know that

All you want, is right here in this room, all you want

And all you need, is sitting here with you, all you want

It's been three years, one night apart,

but in that night you tore my heart

If only you had slept alone,

if those seeds had not been sown

Oh you could come home and you would know that

All you want, is right here in this room, all you want

All you need is sitting here with you, all you want

I hear your key turning in the door,

I won't be hearing that sound anymore

And you and your sin can leave the way you just came in,

send my regards to her

I hope you've found that

All you want, is right there in that room, all you want

All you need is sitting there with you, all you want

I'd like to watch you sleep at night,

to hear you breathe by my side.

The Hideout

look at that green

out through the screen

after a quick rain came

so fast that

there wasn't time

to roll up the windows

and pull the clothes down off the line

but i don't care

it was so dry

and the grass is happy

and i think 'so am i'

'cause i'm through thinking about you

for now i'm out at the hideout

far enough outside of town

you can come

you can stay

if there's something you need

to get away from

look at the day dropping away

hear the traffic pass along

a distant sideroad down the way

i think the dust has settled on me

but i don't care, it was so calm

i knew i wouldn't stay forever

knew i'd get some things together

and move on

but for now i'm out at the hideout

far enough outside of town

you can come, you can stay

if there's something you need

to get away from

i just thought of you

and what you said

laid out on the pullout

did you forget?

you said you wouldn't forget

look at that green

out through the screen

after a quick rain came

so fast that

there wasn't time to roll up the window

and pull the clothes down off the line

but i don't care

it was so dry

the grass is happy and i think 'so am i'

'cause i'm through thinking about you

and for now i'm out at the hideout

far enough outside of town

you can come out

you can come out

when there is no one around

all out at the hideout

far enough from being found

you can come, you can stay

if there's something you need

to get away from

I can sit for hours at the piano, or with my guitar, in the studio, either reinforcing or altering a particular mood.  My life has a soundtrack that changes... but music, sweet music.  Yes it has a profound effect on mood.

I don't have any one particular song to fit a mood, or pick me up, but here's a favorite by Peter Gabriel that's sad and encouraging at the same time:

Here Comes the Flood (2nd album 1979)

"When the night shows

the signals grow on radios

All the strange things

they come and go as early warnings

Stranded starfish have no place to hide

still waiting for the swollen eastern tide.

There's no point in direction

we cannot even choose a side.

I took the old track

the hollow shoulder across the water

On the tall cliffs they were getting older

the sons and daughters

The jaded underworld was riding high

and waves of steel hurled metal at the skies

And as the nails sank in the clouds

the rain was warm and soaked the crowd.

         Lord, Here comes the flood

         we'll say goodbye to flesh and blood

         If again the seas are silent in eddies still alive

         it'll be those who gave their islands who survive

         Drink up, dreamers, you're running dry.

When the flood comes

you have no home, you have no warmth

In the thundercrash

you're a thousand miles within a flash

Don't be afraid to cry at what you see:

The act is gone, it's only you and me

And if we wake before the dawn

we'll use up who we used to be.

         Lord, Here comes the flood

         we'll say goodbye to flesh and blood

         If again the seas are silent in eddies still alive

         it'll be those who gave their islands who survive

         Drink up, dreamers, you're running dry.

Alex and Caitlin,

Thankyou so much for those lyrics, darlings.

I'm so glad I know what they mean - I think it's wonderful. But you know, I never needed to understand the words to know that Edith was singing about acceptance of all life's joys and sorrows - it emerges in that raw and wonderful voice.

No matter how shitty I feel, I only have to hear that first long, drawn out "Noooooon" to smile again :)

This song serves as a kick up the arse for me when I'm feeling down. I had thought he was right, but know what? Everyone is better than he is. This song reminds me of that :)

Moist

Better Than You

I've sold out every memory I have borrowed

I had bought from you

These pictures run like water to dilute me

lay me over you

and I thought that this would be so right

and everyone and everyone

is better than you

and everyone and everyone

I've felt each slow perversion fosters

dying killed the truth in me

gone quietly gone completely cold reminder what

you tried to be

and I knew that this would be so right

and everyone and everyone

is better than you

and everyone and everyone

and everyone and everyone

and it's hard and it's hated

and it's hard

and if so and if so

and everyone and everyone

is better than you

and everyone and everyone

and everyone and everyone

is better than you

better than you.....etc.

and if so and if so.....

THis one isn't as healing as it is cathartic...well, i suppose that's close enough to the same thing for me. the first time i heard it, i burst into tears at the raw emotion in her voice as she sang...like she was on the verge of tears herself. very powerful. currently on repeat in my player at home and at work!

My Immortal

Evanescence

I'm so tired of being here,

Supressed by all my childish fears,

and if you have to leave,

I wish that you would just leave,

Cause your presence still lingers here,

and it won't leave me alone,

These wounds won't seem to heal,

This pain is just too real,

There's just too much that time cannot erase,

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears,

When you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears,

and I held your hand through all of these years,

But you still...have...all of me,

You used to captivate me,

by your resignating mind,

now i'm bound by the life you left behind,

Your face it haunts,

my once pleasant dreams,

your voice it chased away,

all the sanity in me,

These wounds won't seem to heal,

this pain is just to real,

there's just too much that time cannot erase,

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears,

when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears,

and I held your hand through all of these years,

but you still...have...all of me

I've tried so hard to tell myself that your gone,

but though you're still with me,

I've been alone all along,

When you cried i'd wipe away all of your tears,

when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears,

and I held your hand through all of these years,

but you still...have...all of me

This is a fun song - I was listening to it in the car today and was like, "Huh...insomnia. This song seems to be about me." :)

Barenaked Ladies

"Who Needs Sleep?"

Now I lay me down not to sleep

I just get tangled in the sheets

I swim in sweat three inches deep

I just lay back and claim defeat

Chapter read and lesson learned

I turned the lights off while she burned

So while she's three hundred degrees

I throw the sheets off and I freeze

Lids down, I count sheep

I count heartbeats

The only thing that counts is

that I won't sleep

I countdown, I look around

Who needs sleep?

well you're never gonna get it

Who needs sleep?

tell me what's that for

Who needs sleep?

be happy with what you're getting

There's a guy who's been awake

since the Second World War

My hands are locked up tight in fists

My mind is racing, filled with lists

of things to do and things I've done

Another sleepless night's begun

Lids down, I count sheep

I count heartbeats

The only thing that counts is

that I won't sleep

I countdown, I look around

Who needs sleep?

well you're never gonna get it

Who needs sleep?

tell me what's that for

Who needs sleep?

be happy with what you're getting

There's a guy who's been awake

since the Second World War

[repeat]

There's so much joy in life,

so many pleasures all around

But the pleasure of insomnia

is one I've never found

With all life has to offer,

there's so much to be enjoyed

But the pleasures of insomnia

are ones I can't avoid

Lids down, I count sheep

I count heartbeats

The only thing that counts is

that I won't sleep

I countdown, I look around

Hala Hala Hala

Who needs sleep?

well you're never gonna get it

Who needs sleep?

tell me what's that for

Who needs sleep?

be happy with what you're getting

There's a guy who's been awake

since the Second World War

I can't believe I haven't posted this already!!  This song, like most by Evanescence is haunting.  I can't find an album it's on, I stumbled accross the mp3 a few weeks ago, it must have been a B-side or something.

I'll put a T warning for SI and suicide

Evanescence

Breathe No More

I've been looking in the mirror for so long.

That I've come to believe my soul's on the other side.

All the little pieces falling, shatter.

Shards of me,

To sharp to put back together.

To small to matter,

But big enough to cut me into so many little pieces.

If I try to touch her,

And I bleed,

I bleed,

And I breathe,

I breathe no more.

Take a breath and I try to draw from my spirits well.

Yet again you refuse to drink like a stubborn child.

Lie to me,

Convince me that I've been sick forever.

And all of this,

Will make sense when I get better.

But I know the difference,

Between myself and my reflection.

I just can't help but to wonder,

Which of us do you love.

So I bleed,

I bleed,

And I breathe,

I breathe now...

Bleed,

I bleed,

And I breathe,

I breathe,

I breathe-

I breathe no more.

I'm really into the whole music scene, and putting together local shows and such.  A lot of times the bands need a place to stay...and often bunk at my house.  A few years ago, a band named UNDEROATH came to town.  I had known them before they were even a band, just as boys.  We had a pretty serious talk that night, just...talking aaand from it came a song that they put on one of their CD's.  It may t, so be careful.  I really think that it takes a lot for a guy band to come straight out and say these things...and give their stand on this issue.  It's a really angry sounding song too....aaand for me is a bigtime stress relief to scream along w/ it.  

4) Innocence Stolen

Her body twitches, unbearable pain Lord bring me out of this, why doesn’t he stop, love does not exist. Her insides feel like an unbearable hell. Confusion runs through her mind. She prays so loud, she cries from the inside, why, why, why, why, how could someone do this to me? He has taken this gift from her, fright in her eyes, he doesn’t even flinch, persistence on his face. Her body lay helpless as the shock kicks in. Thoughts of death only enter in. Why was I raped, why was I raped? Why did he do this to me, I thought he loved me, but now my insides bleed. Scared for life, I face this world. Only the Lord helps me make it though each day. how can you look in a girl's eyes and use her body for your own pleasure? This one's for the child molesters, this one's for the people who rape! My God powerful will burn your bridges down! planned attack on your soul to defeat the evil and make yo whole. If no changed, then hell your fate. When you rape you take this most important thing in a young gril's life. those who have been raped: you are in my prayers... God hears your cries.

This one is just...remembering that special person who was always there for you in your rough times.

2) Letting Go Of Tonight

Never forget the time you made me feel alive. When death was on my mind, or when you held onto me, when the would let me fall behind. You were love to me rather than just a word. A friend was all you were and it changed my heart. stood next to me through the storm. Felt the wounds and kept me warm. Something I had never seen before. And I thank you.

6) Angel Below

You took me over the edge and left me there to fall by myself. The word LOVE meant nothing to you. I was taken in and with your lies and you knew I was too weak to leave, but you were wrong. You mean nothing to me. Everytime you think of me, I hope your heart dies. I have found my true love, and you now burn beneath my feet. You'll pay for everything you've done. If you could die, I'd be the one with the gun. From this day on, I'll write the songs you hate, and I pray the prayers that drive you away. It's time to let the world know how you tried to ruin my life. Up burn my thoughts of him. The virus leaves me.

Next up is a band called Cool Hand Luke.  They have a really great sound and some really great lyrics too....this song is called In Memory of Innocence...and once again, I salute these guys for having the courage to bringing the topic into their music community.

Memories shattered to the ground

Like cheap christmas ornaments

As she lay there screaming,

"What have i done?"

To the one she knew so well

Thief of virginity

Robber of purity

End of serenity

All for sake of masculinity

A wound so deep no time can reach

Or remedy my Lord, my panacea

Set her free

Take this anger from my heart

Forgive me

I know his sins are no greater than my mine

But i can't forget waht he did

Add another heart to your collection

Add another scar to her reflection

Her every tear brings judgement down upon your head

To form a crown

You broke much more than human flesh

You pierced the heart of a child of God

...you will repent

:)  Bailey took the song I was gonna share.  It's okay though.  The reason I love My Immortal so much is because it's like singing to myself about myself...how with healing there's two parts to me.  How my innocence was lost, how I want to leave behind the sad, broken girl and grow to the girl I'm supposed to be yet how my past won't let me go.  Absolutely LOVE that song.

Another good one by Evanescence is "Bring Me to Life"

How can you see into my eyes

like open doors

leading you down into my core

where I've become so numb?

Without a soul;

my spirit's sleeping somewhere cold,

until you find it there and lead it back home.

(Wake me up.)

Wake me up inside.

(I can't wake up.)

Wake me up inside.

(Save me. )

Call my name and save me from the dark.

(Wake me up. )

Bid my blood to run.

(I can't wake up. )

Before I come undone.

(Save me. )

Save me from the nothing I've become.

Now that I know what I'm without

you can't just leave me.

Breathe into me and make me real.

Bring me to life.

[Chorus]

Bring me to life.

I've been living a lie/There's nothing inside.

Bring me to life.

Frozen inside without your touch,

without your love, darling.

Only you are the life among the dead.

All of this sight

I can't believe I couldn't see

Kept in the dark

but you were there in front of me

I've been sleeping a 1000 years it seems.

I've got to open my eyes to everything.

Without a thought

Without a voice

Without a soul

Don't let me die here/There must be something more.

Bring me to life.

[Chorus]

Bring me to life.

I've been living a lie/There's nothing inside.

Bring me to life

Another one is "That I Would be Good" by Alanis Morrisette.

that I would be good even if I did nothing

that I would be good even if I got the thumbs down

that I would be good if I got and stayed sick

that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds

that I would be fine even if I went bankrupt

that I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth

that I would be great if I was no longer queen

that I would be grand if I was not all knowing

that I would be loved even when I numb myself

that I would be good even when I am overwhelmed

that I would be loved even when I was fuming

that I would be good even if I was clingy

that I would be good even if I lost sanity

that I would be good

whether with or without you

And I'm kinda shocked that no one posted Christina's "I'm Okay"  I want to dance with my mom at my wedding to this song.  Definite trigger factor though...careful.

Once upon a time there was a girl

In her early years she had to learn

How to grow up living in a war that she called home

Never know just where to turn for shelter from the storm

Hurt me to see the pain across my mother's face

Everytime my father's fist would put her in her place

Hearing all the yelling I would cry up in my room

Hoping it would be over soon  

Bruises fade father, but the pain remains the same

And I still remember how you kept me so afraid

Strength is my mother for all the love she gave

Every morning that I wake I look back to yesterday

And I'm OK   I often wonder why I carry all this guilt

When it's you that helped me put up all these walls I've built

Shadows stir at night through a crack in the door

The echo of a broken child screaming "please no more"

Daddy, don't you understand the damage you have done

To you it's just a memory, but for me it still lives on  

Bruises fade father, but the pain remains the same

And I still remember how you kept me so, so afraid

Strength is my mother for all the love she gave

Every morning that I wake I look back to yesterday  

It's not so easy to forget

All the lines you left along her neck

When I was thrown against cold stairs

And every day I'm afraid to come home

In fear of what I might see there  

Bruises fade father but the pain remains the same

And I still remember how you kept me so afraid

Strength is my mother for all the love she gave

Every morning that I wake I look back to yesterday

And I'm OK

I'm OK

I found this incredibly empowering after the hideous trial in which I was supposed to be deeply ashamed for not embracing the nun's lifestyle.

Human Nature - Madonna

(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)

(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)

And I'm not sorry...

It's human nature...

And I'm not sorry...

I'm not your bitch

Don't hang your shit on me

It's human nature

You wouldn't let me say the words I longed to say

You didn't want to see life through my eyes

You tried to shove me back inside your narrow room

And silence me with bitterness and lies

Did I say something wrong?

Oops, I didn't know I couldn't talk about sex

(I must've been crazy!)

Did I stay too long?

Oops, I didn't know I couldn't speak my mind

(What was I thinking?!)

You punished me for telling you my fantasies

I'm breakin' all the rules I didn't make

You took my words and made a trap for silly fools

You held me down and tried to make me break

Did I say something true?

Oops, I didn't know I couldn't talk about sex

(I must've been crazy!)

Did I have a point of view?

Oops, I didn't know I couldn't talk about you

(What was I thinking!?)

And I'm not sorry...

It's human nature...

And I'm not sorry...

I'm not your bitch

Don't hang your shit on me

It's human nature

And I'm not sorry...

It's human nature...

And I'm not sorry...

I'm not your bitch

Don't hang your shit on me

It's human nature

And I'm not sorry...

(I'm not apologizing)

It's human nature...

(Would it sound better if I were a man?)

And I'm not sorry...

(You're the one with the problem)

It's human nature...

(Why don't you just deal with it)

And I'm not sorry...

(Would you like me better if I was?)

It's human nature...

(We all feel the same way)

And I'm not sorry...

(I have no regrets)

It's human nature...

(I don't have to justify anything)

And I'm not sorry...

(I'm just like you)

It's human nature...

(Why don't you just deal with it)

And I'm not sorry...

(Why should I be?)

It's human nature...

(DEAL WITH IT!)

I'm not your bitch

Don't hang your shit on me

It's human nature

Plumb's Endure

Questions drip from my umbrella

Shadows hang over me

Stand here. waiting

I know the sky will break

And bleed its light

And kiss my face with mercy

I'll endure the rain

I will wait an hour more

Not sure if I'll see anything

Can I wait here anymore

I'll endure the rain

I will wait an hour more

Not sure if I'll see anything

Can I wait here any longer

Teardrops vanish in a moment

Rainbows hang over me

Darkness fading

I know the sky will break

And bleed its light

And kiss my face with mercy

Can I wait here any longer

Wait here any longer

Toad The Wet Sprocket

Good Intentions

it's hard to rely on my good intentions

when my head's full of things that i can't mention

seems i usually get things right

but i can't understand what i did last night

it's hard to rely on my own good senses

when i miss so much that requires attention

have to laugh at myself sometimes

and i can see that i'm not blind

there's little relief

give us reprieve

for all the things i've left behind

i'm positive that i'm not blind

i'm not afraid things won't get better

but it feels like this has gone on forever

you have to cry with your own blue tears

have to laugh with your own good cheer

it's hard to rely on my good intentions

when my head's full of things that i can't mention

seems i usually get things right

but i can't understand what i did last night

there's little relief

give us reprieve

imagining the world outside

i'm positive that i'm not blind

i can't be hard on you

'cause you know i've been there too

learned a lot of things from you

but life gives little relief

give us reprieve

and when everyone is cold as ice

i clinch my fists and close my eyes

imagining the world outside

but i can see that i'm not blind

Okay this one is old school, but I still like it.

Runaway Train

Soul Asylum

Call you up in the middle of the night

Like a firefly without a light

You were there like a blowtorch burning

I was a key that could use a little turning

So tired that I couldn’t even sleep

So many secrets I couldn’t keep

Promised myself I wouldn’t weep

One more promise I couldn’t keep

It seems no one can help me now

I’m in too deep; there’s no way out

This time I have really led my self astray

Runaway train, never going back

Wrong way on a one-way track

Seems like I should be getting somewhere

Somehow I’m neither here nor there

Can you help me remember how to smile?

Make it somehow all seem worthwile?

How on earth did I get so jaded?

Life’s mystery seems so faded

I can go where no one else can go

I know what no one else knows

Here I am just a-drownin’ in the rain

With a ticket for a runaway train

And everything seems cut-and-dried

Day and night, earth and sky

Somehow I just don’t believe it

Runaway train, never going back

Wrong way on a one-way track

Seems like I should be getting somewhere

Somehow I’m neither here nor there

Bought a ticket for a runaway train

Like a madman laughing at the rain

A little out of touch, a little insane

It’s just easier than dealing with the pain

Runaway train, never going back

Wrong way on a one-way track

Seems like I should be getting somewhere

Somehow I’m neither here nor there

Runaway train, never coming back

Runaway train, tearing up the track

Runaway train, burning in my veins

I run away, but it always seems the same

Alright, I've got three more for you.

Since I'm like the biggest Goo Goo Dolls fan ever, I had to post this one:

There you are -  Goo Goo Dolls

Give me a reason now that I can understand

Pick up the pieces now and put them in my hand

I've been up and down for you

My suffering extreme

I fell on my face for you

Now I know what it means

And I self destruct

I close my eyes and there

There you are

Yeah you can run out west, forget you know my name

You say you got your shit together, but you ain't got no faith

Method in madness

Now there's madness in my soul

I'd run from the darkness now

I've got no place to go

And I self destruct

I close my eyes and there

There you are

I'm gonna put a trigger warning on this one for one line, just in case:

Shiver - Maroon 5

You build me up

You knock me down

Provoke a smile

And make me frown

You are the queen of runaround

You know it's true

You chew me up

And spit me out

Enjoy the taste

I leave in your mouth

You look at me

I look at you

Neither of us know what to do

(CHORUS)

There may not

Be another way to your heart

So I guess I'd better find a new way in

I shiver when I hear your name

Think about you but it's not the same

I won't be satisfied I'm under your skin

Immobilized by the thought of you

Paralyzed by the sight of you

Hypnotized by the words you say

Not true but I believe anyway

So come to bed It's getting late

There's no more time for us to waste

Remember how my body tastes

You feel your heart begin to race  

(CHORUS)

This one is a really good song that I find myself singing alot.

Everyday - Bon Jovi

I used to be the kind of guy

Who'd never let you look inside

I'd smile when I was crying

I had nothing but a life to loose

Thought I had a lot to proof

In my life, there's no denying

Goodbye to all my yesterdays

Goodbye, so long, I'm on my way

I've had enough of cryin'

Bleedin', sweatin', dyin'

Hear me when I say

Gonna live my life everyday

I'm gonna touch the sky

And I spread these wings and fly

I ain't here to play

I'm gonna live my life everyday

Change, everybody's feeling strange

Never gonna be the same

Makes you wonder how the world keeps turning

Life, learning how to live my life

Learning how to pick my fights

Take my shots while I'm still burning

Goodbye to all those rainy nights

Goodbye, so long, I'm moving on

I've had enough of cryin'

Bleedin', sweatin', dyin'

Hear me when I say

Gonna live my life everyday

I'm gonna touch the sky

And I spread these wings and fly

I ain't here to play

I'm gonna live my life everyday

There ain't nothing gonna get in my way

Everyday

Goodbye, so long, I'm moving on

I've had enough of cryin'

Bleedin', sweatin', dyin'

Hear me when I say

Gonna live my life everyday

I'm gonna touch the sky

And I spread these wings and fly

I ain't here to play

I'm gonna live my life everyday

I, oh I, oh I, I'm gonna live my life everyday

I (gonna touch the sky), oh I

(spread these wings and fly), oh I

I'm gonna live my life everyday

I love this one...It's a huge power song for me.  

Control ~ by Poe

Don't you mess with a little girl's dream

'Cause she's liable to grow up mean

Surprised you to find that I'm laughing?

You thought that you'd find me in tears

You thought I'd be crawling the walls

Like a tiny mosquito and trembling in fear

Well you may be king for the moment

But I am a queen understand

And I've got your pawns and your bishops

And castles

All inside the palm of my hand

While you were looking the other way

While you had your eyes closed

While you were licking your lips

'Cause I was miserable

While you were selling your soul

While you were tearing a hole in me

I was taking control

Now I have taken control

Now I have taken control...

This is beginning to feel good

Watching you squirm in your shoes

A small bead of sweat on your brow

And a growl in your belly you're scared to let through

You thought you could keep me from loving

You thought you could feed on my soul

But while you were busy destroying my life

What was half in me has become whole

While you were looking the other way

While you had your eyes closed

While you were licking your lips

'Cause I was miserable

While you were selling your soul

While you were tearing a hole in me

I was taking control

Now I have taken control

Now I have taken control...

So this is how it feels

To breathe in the summer air

The feel the sand between my toes

And love inside my ear

All those things that you taught me to fear

I've got them in my garden now

And you're not welcome here

Come here!

Come a little bit closer

Let me look at you

I gave you the benefit

Of the doubt it's true

But keep in mind my darling

Not every saint is a fool

(Don't) While you were looking the other way

(You mess) While you had your eyes closed

(With me) While you were licking your lips

'Cause I was miserable

(Don't) While you were selling your soul

(You mess) While you were tearing a hole in me

I was taking control

Now I have taken control

Now I have taken control...

Don't you mess with me
