If this one was laready posted, I'm sorry. I just got this CD and it's amazing. I love Bush. The CD is called Razorblade Suitcase.

Cold Contagious

Wherever you are

You will carry always

Truth of the scars

And darkness of your faith

Slowly move on

How did we get to here

It all went wrong

Gravity claiming all your tears

Everything looks so much better now

Looks so much better now

Skinful

You will get yours you will get yours

You will get yours

You have no right to ask me now

You were never that around

And i have missed

Reality daytrips

And your suit me suit me ways

Turn out the light switch

We've been awake for days

And no one's coming round here no more

No one's coming round here

You will get yours you will get yours

You will get yours you will get yours

You will get yours

You have no right to calm me down

You were never that around

And i have missed

I have missed

Cold contagious

All the might mighty men

What you save is

What you lose out in the end

Cold contagious

Cold contagious

Paint your perfect day

I don't mind this

I'm better off by the way

Deeply grounded

You will get yours you will get yours

You will get yours you will get yours

You will get yours you will get yours

Cold contagious

All the mighty mighty men

What you save is

What you lose out in the end

Cold contagious

Cold contagious

Cold

Contagious

This is one of my favorite songs ever. If it's already been posted I'm very sorry, I didn't see it. ***MIGHT T***

Hurt - Nine Inch Nails

I hurt myself today

to see if I still feel

I focus on the pain

the only thing that's real

the needle tears a hole

the old familiar sting

try to kill it all away

but I remember everything

what have I become?

my sweetest friend

everyone I know

goes away in the end

you could have it all

my empire of dirt

I will let you down

I will make you hurt

I wear my crown of shit

on my liar's chair

full of broken thoughts

I cannot repair

beneath the stain of time

the feeling disappears

you are someone else

I am still right here

what have I become?

my sweetest friend

everyone I know

goes away in the end

you could have it all

my empire of dirt

I will let you down

I will make you hurt

if I could start again

a million miles away

I would keep myself

I would find a way

Rather black...not really the positive healing kind.

May *t*

Nine Inch Nails

Underneath it all

all i do

i can still feel you

all i do

i can still feel you

all i do

i can still feel you

all i do

i can still feel you

all i do

i can still feel you

numb all through

i can still feel you

hear your call

underneath it all

kill my brain

yet you still remain

crucified

after all i've died

after all i've tried

you are still inside

all i do

i can still feel you

all i do

i can still feel you

all i do

i can still feel you

all i do

i can still feel you

all i do

i can still feel you

all i do              (you remain)

i can still feel you  (i am stained)

this one's been going through my head non-stop since i first heard it. i only just listened to the lyrics today...parts of it just  strike something in me:

Nelly Furtado (aka "shrill harpy", as per my bf!)

"Try"

All I know

Is everything is not as it's sold

but the more I grow the less I know

And I have lived so many lives

Though I'm not old

And the more I see, the less I grow

The fewer the seeds the more I sow

Then I see you standing there

Wanting more from me

And all I can do is try

Then I see you standing there

Wanting more from me

And all I can do is try

I wish I hadn't seen all of the realness

And all the real people are really not real at all

The more I learn the more I cry

As I say goodbye to the way of life

I thought I had designed for me

Then I see you standing there

Wanting more from me

And all I can do is try

Then I see you standing there

I'm all I'll ever be

But all I can do is try

Try

All of the moments that already passed

We'll try to go back and make them last

All of the things we want each other to be

We never will be

And that's wonderful, and that's life

And that's you, baby

This is me, baby

I found a link to this song on the RAINN website the other day, and found the song empowering.  There is something so healing about singing "I'm not afraid anymore" that I just love.

You can also listen to it here.

I'm Not Afraid Anymore ~ by Lourds

Walk away

Walk away I don't want to know

Locked away

Let me out 'cause I can't let go

I didn't want to think a lot about it

'Cause it's not as safe inside my mind

But now that I have lost my breath from running

I will not hide this time

I'm not afraid anymore

I'm not afraid anymore

I'm not afraid anymore

So help me I'll survive

I see the shapes

In the dark, hear the silence loud

I wanna play in this mud

Will you show me how?

I should have known the sun will rise tomorrow

But then again I think it rose today

There's no time to be a slave to sorrow

When I've got so much to say

I'm not afraid anymore

I'm not afraid anymore

I'm not afraid anymore

And I know I will survive

If every rainbow's lacking color

And no one colors in the lines

If every line that's said is crooked

And the crooked set the time,

I will survive

If every face becomes a needle

And all I need - to bleed in peace

Every piece of me grows stronger

'Cause my strength of will won't cease.

And I will survive.

I will survive.

I will survive.

I will survive.

I'm not afraid anymore.

This song always makes me cry.  I guess it's not very healing but it says exactly how I've felt since that day.

No More Good Guys By Skindive

i died today, but i'm still breathing,

bleeding, for now, i'm broken

you left me here

capsized and sinking

thinking, right now

there's no more good guys

you left me standing here

alone and colder

i hope that some day soon

the pain inside will stop

you died today,

but you're still breathing

in my mind, that is,

there's no more good guys

you left me standing here

alone and colder

i hope that some day soon

the pain inside will stop

i hoped you'd see me

i hoped you'd understand

or crucify me for my failings

my cruel ambition hardly justified

and the pain inside will stop

This is a love song but it's really good. I thought i would share with you all. Because this song makes you want to think.

For all those times you stood by me

For all the truth that you made me see

For all the joy you brought to my life

For all the wrong that you made right

For every dream you made come true

For all the love I found in you

I'll be forever thankful baby

You're the one who held me up

Never let me fall

You're the one who saw me through, through it all

You were my strength when I was weak

You were my voice when I couldn't speak

You were my eyes when I couldn't see

You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach

You gave me faith 'cuz you believed

I'm everything I am

Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly

You touched my hand I could touch the sky

I lost my faith, you gave it back to me

You said no star was out of reach

You stood by me and I stood tall

I had your love I had it all

I'm grateful for each day you gave me

Maybe I don't know that much

But I know this much is true

I was blessed because I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak

You were my voice when I couldn't speak

You were my eyes when I couldn't see

You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach

You gave me faith 'cuz you believed

I'm everything I am

Because you loved me

You were always there for me

The tender wind that carried me

A light in the dark shining your love into my life

You've been my inspiration

Through the lies you were the truth

My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak

You were my voice when I couldn't speak

You were my eyes when I couldn't see

You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach

You gave me faith'cuz you believed

I'm everything I am

Because you loved me

You were my strength when I was weak

You were my voice when I couldn't speak

You were my eyes when I couldn't see

You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach

You gave me faith'coz you believed

I'm everything I am

Because you loved me

I'm everything I am

Because you loved me

This is a beautiful, almost haunting song that as I read the lyrics I couldn't help but think of myself and a lot of people here.

Ordinary World -- Duran Duran

Came in from a rainy Thursday on the avenue thought I heard you talking softly

I turned on the lights the TV and the radio but still I can't escape the ghost of you

What is happening to me crazy some would say

Where is the life that I recognize, gone away

And I won't cry for yesterday there's an ordinary world somehow I have to find

And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world I will learn to survive

Passion or coincidence once prompted you to say pride will tear us both apart

Well now pride's gone out the window cross the rooftops runaway

Left me in the vaccuum of my heart

What is happening to me crazy some will say where is my friend when I need you most gone away

But I won't cry for yesterday there's an ordinary world somehow I have to find

And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world I will learn to survive

Papers in the roadside tell of suffering and grief

Fear today forgot tomorrow beside the news of holy war and holy need

Our's is just a little sorrowed talk, just blown away

And I won't cry for yesterday there's an ordinary world somehow I have to find

And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world I will learn to survive

Every world is my world (I will learn to survive)

Any world is my world (I will learn to survive)

Any world is my world, every world is our world, every world

I have a few songs here

Hero

by Mariah Carey

There's a hero

If you look inside your heart

You don't have to be afraid

Of what you are

There's an answer

If you reach into your soul

And the sorrow that you know

Will melt away

Chorus:

And then a hero comes along

With the strength to carry on

And you cast your fears aside

And you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone

Look inside you and be strong

And you'll finally see the truth

That a hero lies in you

It's a long road

When you face the world alone

No one reaches out a hand

For you to hold

You can find love

If you search within yourself

And the emptiness you felt

Will disappear

Chorus:

And then a hero comes along

With the strength to carry on

And you cast your fears aside

And you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone

Look inside you and be strong

And you'll finally see the truth

That a hero lies in you

Lord knows

Dreams are hard to follow

But don't let anyone

Tear them away

Hold on

There will be tomorrow

In time

You'll find the way

Chorus:

And then a hero comes along

With the strength to carry on

And you cast your fears aside

And you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone

Look inside you and be strong

And you'll finally see the truth

That a hero lies in you

That a hero lies in you

Concrete Angel

by Martina Mcbride

She walks to school with the lunch she packed,

Nobody knows what she's holdin back,

Wearin the same dress she wore yesterday,

She hides the bruises with a linen and lace ohhh,

The teacher wonders but she doesn't ask,

It's hard to see the pain behind the mask,

Bearin' the burden of a secret storm,

Sometimes she wishes she was never born,

Through the wind and the rain she stands hard as a stone,

In a world that she can't rise above,

But her dreams give her wings and she flies to a place where she's loved,

Concrete angel,

Somebody cries in the middle of the night,

The neighbors hear but they turn out the lights,

A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate,

When mornin' comes it'll be too late,

Through the wind and the rain she stands hard as a stone,

In a world that she can't rise above,

But her dreams give her wings and she flies to a place where she's loved

Concrete angel

A statue stands in a shaded place,

An angel girl with an upturned face,

Her name is written on a polished rock,

A broken heart that the world forgot,

Through the wind and the rain she stands hard as a stone,

In a world that she can't rise above

But her dreams give her wings and she flies to a place where she's loved,

Concrete angel

(this song can be a bit depressing, but reminds of how lucky I am, that I have survived it all, although I am still in a bad situttion at time, I am still living and still going strong)

Although it speaks of a girl insecure in her relationship, I could relate to the whole 'pretending everything's okay'  theme.

DOTH I PROTEST TOO MUCH - Alanis Morissette

I'm not threatened by every pair of legs you watch go by

I don't cringe when you stare at women

It's just a thing called guy

I don't notice your side ways glances

Or where your loyalty lies

I'm secure and out of me

It's hard to get a rise

I'm not jealous

I don't get moved my much

I'm not enraged

Not insecure as such

Not going insane

Rational stays in touch

Doth I protest too much?

I'm not tortured by how oft your busy

Cause I've got things to do

I'm not disappointed about how you don't miss you me

Cause I don't need you to

I'm not needy

I don't get clingy much

I'm not scared

I'm not afraid as such

I'm not dependent

Rock solid, stays in touch

And Doth I protest too much?

So much energy to prove to you

Who I can't possibly be

So much energy to prove to you

I'm not who you hate for me to be

I'm not saddened

And I don't miss you

Cause I have moved on too

I'm not concerned about your new lover

Cause I have a new lover too

I'm not depressed

I don't get down that much

I'm not despondent

I am not dark as such

I'm never sad

Keep Chin Up, Stays in touch

And Doth I protest too much?

I'm not jealous

I don't get moved my much

I'm not enraged

Not insecure as such

Not going insane

Rational stays in touch

And Doth I protest too much?

okay... laugh at me... i listen to Disturbed.... i mean i have this great little 16yo sister that LOVES them and made me a copy and i've really been getting into the anger lateley, lol...

anyways... w/a**hole moved in just across the street... this song has really seen me through a lot of anger and rage... i especially love the lines:

"pennance can't absolve your sins/all your belief can not absolve your sins"... enough talking, right :laugh:  ? here's the song :

Believe, when you lie

You will never need to recognize yourself

To deceive

To remove all chance of doubt and be received

With your lie

The deception is complete when you concede

And decide

To reject your lives, sacrificed to me

Penance can't absolve your sin

All your belief

Cannot absolve your sin

Believe, when you lie

You will never need to recognize the source

Of deceipt

To renew your faith in God

You must believe, in your lie

The redemption is complete when you conceive

And decline

To release your lives

Sacrificed to me

Penance can't absolve your sin All your belief

Cannot absolve your sin

Reap your life, like you want to

recognize, all you've come to

Reap your life

Veiled in shadow

Recognize

Faces of the crucified

I can hear their screams tonight

Ever haunting me

Burn your lie into me

Penance can't absolve your sin

All your belief

Cannot absolve your sin

Kiss the Rain

Written by Billie Myers, Eric Bazilian & Desmond Child

Hello...

Can you hear me

Am I getting through to you

Hello...

Is it late there

Is there laughter on the line

Are you sure you're there alone

Cuz I'm

trying to explain

something's wrong

You just don't sound the same

Why don't you

Why don't you

Go outside

Go outside

Kiss the rain

Whenever you need me

Kiss the rain

Whenever I'm gone too long

If your lips feel lonely and thirsty

Kiss the rain

And wait for the dawn

Keep in mind

We're under the same sky

And the night's

As empty for me as for you

If you feel

You can't wait till morning

Kiss the rain

Kiss the rain

Kiss the rain

Hello...

Do you miss me

I hear you say you do

but not the way I'm missing you

What's new

How's the weather

Is it stormy where you are

You sound so close but it feels like you're so far

Oh would it mean anything

If you knew

What I'm left imagining

In my mind

My mind

Would you go

Would you go

Kiss the rain

As you fall

Over me

Think of me

Think of me

Think of me

Only me

Kiss the rain

Whenever you need me

Kiss the rain

Whenever I'm gone too long

If your lips

Feel hungry and tempted

Kiss the rain

And wait for the dawn

Keep in mind

We're under the same sky

And the night's

As empty for me as for you

If you feel you can't wait till morning

Kiss the rain

Kiss the rain

Kiss the rain

Kiss the rain

(Kiss the rain)

(Kiss the rain)

(Kiss the rain)

Hello...

Can you hear me

Can you hear me

Can you hear me

Luka~ By Suzanne Vega

My name is Luka

I live on the second floor

I live upstairs from you

Yes I think you've seen me before

If you hear something late at night

Some kind of trouble. some kind of fight

Just don't ask me what it was

Just don't ask me what it was

Just don't ask me what it was

I think it's because I'm clumsy

I try not to talk too loud

Maybe it's because I'm crazy

I try not to act too proud

They only hit until you cry

And after that you don't ask why

You just don't argue anymore

You just don't argue anymore

You just don't argue anymore

Yes I think I'm okay

I walked into the door again

Well, if you ask that's what I'll say

And it's not your business anyway

I guess I'd like to be alone

With nothing broken, nothing thrown

Just don't ask me how I am

Just don't ask me how I am

Just don't ask me how I am

A New Day Has Come~ Celion Dion

Written By:

A. Nova, S. Moccio

Lyrics:

A new day

A new day

I was waiting for so long

For a miracle to come

Everyone told me to be strong

Hold on, and don't shed a tear

Through the darkness and good times

I knew I'd make it through

And the world thought I had it all

But I was waiting for you

Hush, now

I see a light in the sky

Oh, it's almost blinding me

I can't believe, I've been touched by an angel with love

Let the rain come down and wash away my tears

Let it fill my soul and drown my fears

Let it shatter the walls for a new sun

A new day has come

Where it was dark now there's light

Where there was pain now there's joy

Where there was weakness I found my strength

All in the eyes of a boy

Hush, now

I see the light in the sky

Oh, it's almost blinding me

I can't believe, I've been touched by an angel with love

Let the rain come down and wash away my tears

Let it fill my soul and drown my fears

Let it shatter the walls for a new sun

A new day has come

Let the rain come down and wash away my tears

Let it fill my soul and drown my fears

Let it shatter the walls for a new sun

A new day has come

Hush now, I see the light in your eyes

All in the eyes of a boy

I can't believe, I've been touched by an angel with love

I can't believe, I've been touched by an angel with love

Hush now

A new day

Hush now

A new day

Im Alive~ Celion Dion

Written By:

K. Lundin, A. Carlsson

Lyrics:

Mmmm...

I get wings to fly

Oh, I'm alive

When you call on me

When I hear you breath

I get wings to fly

I feel that I'm alive

When you look at me

I can touch the sky

I know that I'm alive

When you bless the day

I just drift away

All my worries die

I'm glad that I'm alive

You've set my heart on fire

Filled me with love

Made me a woman on clouds above

I couldn't get much higher

My spirit takes flight

'Cause I'm alive

(When you call on me)

When you call on me

(When I hear you breath)

When I hear you breath

I get wings to fly

I feel that I'm alive

I am alive

(When you reach for me)

When you reach for me

Raising spirits high

God knows that

That I'll be the one

Standing by

Through good and through trying times

And it's only begun

I can't wait for the rest of my life

(When you call on me)

When you call on me

(When you reach for me)

When you reach for me

I get wings to fly

I feel that

(When you bless the day)

When you bless, you bless the day

I just drift away

All my worries die

I'm glad that I'm alive

When you bless the day

(I just drift away)

I just drift away

All my worries die

I know that I'm alive

I get wings to fly

God knows that I'm alive

Paranoid Android~Radiohead

Please could you stop the noise, I'm trying to get some rest

From all the unborn chicken voices in my head

What's that...? (I may be paranoid, but not an android)

What's that...? (I may be paranoid, but not an android)

When I am king, you will be first against the wall

With your opinion which is of no consequence at all

What's that...? (I may be paranoid, but no android)

What's that...? (I may be paranoid, but no android)

Ambition makes you look pretty ugly

Kicking and squealing gucci little piggy

You don't remember

You don't remember

Why don't you remember my name?

Off with his head, man

Off with his head, man

Why don't you remember my name?

I guess he does....

Rain down, rain down

Come on rain down on me

From a great height

From a great height... height...

Rain down, rain down

Come on rain down on me

From a great height

From a great height... height...

Rain down, rain down

Come on rain down on me

That's it, sir

You're leaving

The crackle of pigskin

The dust and the screaming

The yuppies networking

The panic, the vomit

The panic, the vomit

God loves his children, God loves his children, yeah!

Frozen

written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

Track 9, Time: 6:13

-------------------------

Verse:

You only see what your eyes want to see

How can life be what you want it to be

You're frozen

When your heart's not open

You're so consumed with how much you get

You waste your time with hate and regret

You're broken

When your heart's not open

Chorus:

Mmmmmm, if I could melt your heart

Mmmmmm, we'd never be apart

Mmmmmm, give yourself to me

Mmmmmm, you hold the key

Now there's no point in placing the blame

And you should know I suffer the same

If I lose you

My heart will be broken

Love is a bird, she needs to fly

Let all the hurt inside of you die

You're frozen

When your heart's not open

(chorus)

(verse)

(chorus, repeat)

If I could melt your heart

Love's Divine ~ Seal

Then the rainstorm came over me

And I felt my spirit break

I had lost all of my belief you see

And realize my mistake

But time through a prayer to me

And all around me became still

I need love, love's divine

Please forgive me now I see that I've been blind

Give me love, loves is what I need to help me know my name

Through the rainstorm came sanctuary

And I felt my spirit fly

I had found all of my reality

I realize what it takes

'Cause I need love, love's divine

Please forgive me now I see that I've been blind

Give me love, loves is what I need to help me know my name

Oh I don't bet [don't bet], don't pray [don't pray]

Show me how to live and promise me you won't forsake

'Cause love can help me know my name

Well I try to say there's nothing wrong

But inside I felt me lying all alone

But the message here was plain to see

Believe in me…

'Cause I need love, love's divine

Please forgive me now I see that I've been blind

Give me love, love is what I need to help me know my name

Oh I, don't bet [don't bet], don't break [don't break]

Show me how to live and promise me you won't forsake

'Cause love can help me know my name

Love can help me know my name.

There's an earlier song by Evanescence called "Fields of Innocence" that I find really haunting:

I still remember the world

From the eyes of a child

Slowly those feelings

Were clouded by what I know now

*chorus*

Where has my heart gone

An uneven trade for the real world

oh I...

I want to go back to

Believing in everything and knowing nothing at all

I still remember the sun

Always warm on my back

Somehow it seems colder now

*chorus2*

Where has my heart gone

Trapped in the eyes of a stranger

oh why...

I want to go back to

Believing in everything

Plumb has several great songs out that have really helped me, they may be triggering though so BE CAREFUL!

Unforgivable

I'm never told that I am pretty

I'm never told that I am kind

And my soul burns now with fire

Deep inside

I want to become brave and courageous

Not buried in self-pity of my own

Ashamed and alone

From all that's been done to me

It's not my fault I remind myself

You say don't be afraid

But I feel afraid

You say don't laugh or cry

But I show emotion

You say food will be on the table

And birds in the sky

But I'm hungry, so hungry

And it's cloudy outside

You never loved me like a daughter

You never even loved yourself

Now you treat me like a burden

Just another object on your shelf

I want you to know now that I love you

And this pain that I carry is not my own

Ashamed and alone

From all that's been done to you

It's not your fault I remind myself

Chorus

No matter what I've done

Or is done to me

Nothing's unforgivable

Or unable to be set free

Chorus (to end)

Nice, Naive, and Beautiful

She’s only known heartache and pain

But she’s never known pain like this

She stands alone defending her name

When all that she’s done is be who she is

Well is it so wrong to be who we are

When all she’s done is fail

Cause she’s so nice, naïve and beautiful

Why does she get taken advantage

Why does she live in a world so cold

She takes advantage of the nice, naïve and the beautiful

Cold is the throne of her hardened heart

No one has seen the softest part

Day after night she holds an ache

And won't budge to show this secret place

Well is it so wrong to hang on to hurt

Maybe she could set it free

Cause she’s so nice, naïve and beautiful

Why did she get taken for granted

Why did she live in a world so cold

He took advantage of the nice, naïve and the beautiful

If you’ve been there you know

If you’re still there hang on

We’re all dealt our lumps of coal

What you do with it can turn beautiful

Well there’s a life outside of this madness

And there’s a face behind every scar

But there’s a love overflowing with gladness

Get out of that place that’s restraining your love

I said get out of that place that’s restraining your love

Damaged

Dreaming comes so easily

'Cause it's all that I've known

True love is a fairy tale

I'm damaged, so how would I know

I'm scared and I'm alone

I'm ashamed

And I need for you to know

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say

And you can't take back what you've taken away

'Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say

And you can't take back what you've taken away

'Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

Healing comes so painfully

And it chills to the bone

Will anyone get close to me?

I'm damaged, as I'm sure you know

Im scared and

i'm alone

im ashamed and

i need for you to know

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say

And you can't take back what you've taken away

'Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say

And you can't take back what you've taken away

'Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

There's mending for my soul

An ending to this fear

Forgiveness for a man who was stronger

I was just a little girl, but I can't go back

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say

And you can't take back what you've taken away

'Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say

And you can't take back what you've taken away

'Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

Hey everyone.  I'm new to this board but have been lurking on this subject for a few days and wanted to post.

This is how I feel today:

Grey Street by Dave Matthews Band

Oh look at how she listens

She says nothing of what she thinks

She just goes stumbling through her memories

Staring out on Grey Street

She thinks, "Hey,

How did I come to this?

I dream myself a thousand times around the world.

But I can't get out of this place."

There's an emptiness inside her

And she'd do anything to fill it in

But all the colors mix together - to grey

And it breaks her heart

How she wishes it was different

She prays to God most every night

And though she swears it doesn't listen

There's still a hope in her it might

She says, "I pray

But they fall on deaf ears.

Am I supposed to take it on myself?

To get out of this place."

There's loneliness inside her

And she'd do anything to fill it in

And though it's red blood bleeding from her now

It feels like cold blue ice in her heart

When all the colors mix together - to grey

And it breaks her heart

There's a stranger speaks outside her door

Says take what you can from your dreams

Make them as real as anything

It'd take the work out of the courage

But she says, "Please,

There's a crazy man that's creeping outside my door,

I live on the corner of Grey Street

And the end of the world."

There's an emptiness inside her

And she'd do anything to fill it in

And though it's red blood bleeding from her now

It's more like cold blue ice in her heart

She feels like kicking out all the windows

And setting fire to this life

She could change everything about her

Using colors bold and bright

But all the colors mix together - to grety

And it breaks her heart

It breaks her heart

To grey

And this is my favorite Poe song and it means so much more to me now.

Fly Away by Poe

It makes sense that it should happen this way

That the sky should break

And the Earth should shake

As if to say

"Sure it all matters, but in such an unimportant way"

As if to say

Fly away

Sweet bird of prey

Fly, fly away

Nothing can stand in your way

Sweet bird

If you knew the words

I know that you'd say

Fly, fly away

It makes sense that it should hurt in this way

That my heart should break

And my hands should shake

As if to say

"Sure it don't matter except in a most important way"

As if to say

Fly away

Sweet bird of prey

Fly, fly away

I won't stand in your way

Sweet bird

If you knew the words

I know that you'd say

Fly, fly away

It makes sense that it should feel this way

That you slowly fade

And yet still remain

As if to say

"Everything matters in such an invisible way"

As if to say

"It's okay"

Fly away

I am not a religious person but I am moved by this song every time I hear it, usually to the point of tears. It reminds me of what I have lost, and all that I can gain by asking others for help.

Holy Water by Big and Rich (yes its a country song and I present it to you without predjudice)

Somewhere there's a stolen halo

I used to watch her wear it well

Everything would shine

Wherever she would go

But looking at her now you's never tell

Someone ran away with her innocence

A memory she can't get out of her head

I can only imagine

What she's feeling when she's praying

Kneeling at the edge of her bed

And she says

Take me away

And take me farther

Surround me now

And hold, hold, hold me

Like holy water

She wants someone to call her angel

Someone to put the light back in her eyes

She looking through the faces

And unfamiliar places

She needs someone to hear her when she cries

And she says

Take me away

And take me farther

Surround me now

And hold, hold, hold me

Like holy water

She just needs a little help

To wash away the pain she's felt

She wants to feel the healing hands

Of someone who understands

And she says

Take me away

And take me farther

Surround me now

And hold, hold, hold

She says

Take me away

And take me farther

Surround me now

And hold, hold, hold me

like holy water

Calling All Angels by Jane Siberry & k.d. Lang

Santa Maria, Santa Teresa, Santa Anna, Santa Susannah

Santa Cecilia, Santa Copelia, Santa Domenica, Mary Angelica

Frater Achad, Frater Pietro, Julianus, Petronilla

Santa, Santos, Miroslaw, Vladimir

and all the rest

a man is placed upon the steps, a baby cries

and high above the church bells start to ring

and as the heaviness the body oh the heaviness settles in

somewhere you can hear a mother sing

then it's one foot then the other as you step out onto the road

how much weight? how much weight?

then it's how long? and how far?

and how many times before it's too late?

calling all angels

calling all angels

walk me through this one

don't leave me alone

calling all angels

calling all angels

we're cryin' and we're hurtin'

and we're not sure why...

and every day you gaze upon the sunset

with such love and intensity

it's almost...it's almost as if

if you could only crack the code

then you'd finally understand what this all means

but if you could...do you think you would

trade in all the pain and suffering?

ah, but then you'd miss

the beauty of the light upon this earth

and the sweetness of the leaving

calling all angels

calling all angels

walk me through this one

don't leave me alone

callin' all angels

callin' all angels

we're tryin'

we're hopin'

we're hurtin'

we're lovin'

we're cryin'

we're callin'

'cause we're not sure how this goes

Heres a link so you can hear it: (Im not sure if its just a sample or

the full song)

Mistakes I Made by Fran Lucci

It really is a miracle that I have come this far.

Without a hope without a prayer without a guiding star.

In spite of my nativity and many dreams betrayed,

I know I would not be here now but for mistakes I made

But for mistakes I made

Who knows who I would be

Some other heart some other soul

Some other destiny

But for the times I took a wrong turn unafraid

I might have missed it all

But for mistakes I made

So many times I've tried to change things out of my control.

The jealousy and all the rage that swallowed me up whole.

The years that I spent loving those who did not feel the same.

The times I didn't trust myself with only me to blame.

But for mistakes I made

Who knows where I would be

Some other place some other time

Some other destiny

But for the times I took a wrong turn unafraid

I might have missed it all

But for mistakes I made

These things have taught me what is real

How to laugh how to cry how to love without regret and when to say hello..or goodbye

I know whatever comes my way my dues have all been paid.

For you would not be in my life, but for mistakes I made

But for mistakes I made

Who knows who I would be

Some other heart some other soul

Some other destiny

But for the times I took a wrong turn unafraid

I might have missed it all

But for mistakes I made

I might have missed it all

But for mistakes I made.

Mrs. Potter's Lullaby by The Counting Crows

Well I woke up in mid-afternoon cause that's when it all hurts the most

I dream I never know anyone at the party and I'm always the host

If dreams are like movies, then memories are films about ghosts

You can never escape, you can only move south down the coast

Well, I am an idiot walking a tightrope of fortune and fame

I am an acrobat swinging trapezes through circles of flame

If you've never stared off in the distance, then your life is a shame

And though I'll never forget your face,

sometimes I can't remember my name

Hey Mrs. Potter don't cry

Hey Mrs. Potter I know why but

Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me

Well, there's a piece of Maria in every song that I sing

And the price of a memory is the memory of the sorrow it brings

And there is always one last light to turn out and one last bell to ring

And the last one out of the circus has to lock up everything

Or the elephants will get out and forget to remember what you said

And the ghosts of the tilt-a-whirl will linger inside of your head

And the ferris wheel junkies will spin them forever instead

When I see you a blanket of stars covers me in bed

Hey Mrs. Potter don't go

Hey Mrs. Potter I don't know but

Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me

All the blue light reflections that color my mind when I sleep

And the lovesick rejections that accompany the company I keep

All the razor perceptions that cut just a little too deep

Hey I can bleed as well as anyone, but I need someone to help me sleep

So I throw my hand into the air and it swims in the beams

It's just a brief interruption of the swirling dust sparkle jet stream

Well, I know I don't know you and you're probably not what you seem

But I'd sure like to find out

So why don't you climb down off that movie screen

Hey Mrs. Potter don't turn

Hey Mrs. Potter I burn for you

Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me

When the last king of Hollywood shatters his glass on the floor

and orders another

Well, I wonder what he did that for That's when I know that I have to get out cause I have been there before

So I gave up my seat at the bar and I head for the door

We drove out to the desert just to lie down beneath this bowl of stars

We stand up at the Palace like it's the last of the great Pioneertown bars

We shout out these songs against the clang of electric guitars

You can see a million miles tonight

But you can't get very far

Hey Mrs. Potter I won't touch and

Hey Mrs. Potter it's not much but

Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me

I Will Remember You by Sarah Mclachlan

I will remember you

Will you remember me?

Don't let your life pass you by

Weep not for the memories

Remember the good times that we had?

I let them slip away from us when things got bad

How clearly I first saw you smilin' in the sun

Wanna feel your warmth upon me, I wanna be the one

I will remember you

Will you remember me?

Don't let your life pass you by

Weep not for the memories

I'm so tired but I can't sleep

Standin' on the edge of something much too deep

It's funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word

We are screaming inside, but we can't be heard

But I will remember you

Will you remember me?

Don't let your life pass you by

Weep not for the memories

I'm so afraid to love you, but more afraid to loose

Clinging to a past that doesn't let me choose

Once there was a darkness, deep and endless night

You gave me everything you had, oh you gave me light

And I will remember you

Will you remember me?

Don't let your life pass you by

Weep not for the memories

And I will remember you

Will you remember me?

Don't let your life pass you by

Weep not for the memories

Weep not for the memories

Ghost by The Indigo Girls

There's a letter on the desktop that I dug out of a drawer

the last truce we ever came to from our adolescent war

and I start to feel a fever from the warm air through the screen

you come regular like seasons shadowing my dreams

and the mississippi's mighty but it starts in Minnesota

at a place where you could walk across with five steps down

and I guess that's how you started like a pinprick to my heart

but at this point you rush right through me and I start to drown

and there's not enough room in this world for my pain

signals cross and love gets lost and time passed makes it plain

of all my demon spirits I need you the most

I'm in love with your ghost

I'm in love with your ghost

dark and dangerous like a secret that gets whispered in a hush

when i wake the things I dreamt about you last night make me blush

when you kiss me like a lover

then you sting me like a viper

i go follow to the river

play your memory like the piper

and i feel it like a sickness how this love is killing me

but i'd walk into the fingers of your fire willingly

and dance the edge of sanity i've never been this close

in love with your ghost

unknowing captor you'll never know how much you

pierce my spirit

but i can't touch you

can you hear it a cry to be free

or i'm forever under lock and key

as you pass through me

now i see your face before me

i would launch a thousand ships

to bring your heart back to my island

as the sand beneath me slips

as i burn up in your presence and i know now how it feels

to be weakened like Achilles with you always at my heels

and my bitter pill to swallow is the silence that i keep

that poisons me i can't swim free the river is too deep

though i'm baptized by your touch i am no worse at most

in love with your ghost

Now, here's mine:

Title: Woman

Musician: Maroon 5

Lyrics:(i think they're wrong but here they are anyways)

If I be so inclinded to climb up inside you would you tell me that the time

just isn't right?

And if I SHOULD ever find the key you hide so well, will you tell me that I can spend

the night?

Leaving your smell on my coat

Leaving your taste on my shoulder

I still fail to understand what it is about this woman

Yeah, Oh Woh, woh woh

If I could bottle up the chills you give me, I would keep them in a jar next to

my bed.

And if I should ever draw a picture of a woman, it is you that would come

flowing from my pen, yeah

Leaving your clothes on the floor

Making me walk out the door and

I still fail to understand what it is about this woman

Oooo, oh

Helplessly melting as I stand next to the sun and as she burned me, I am

screaming out for more.

Drink every drop of liquid heat that I've become, pop me open spit me out onto

the floor.

Leaving your smell on my coat

Leaving your taste on my shoulder

I still fail to understand what it is about this woman

Leaving your smell on my coat

(Leaving your smell on my coat)

Leaving your taste on my shoulder

(Leaving your taste on my shoulder)

I still fail to understand what it is about this woman

I find this song absolutely haunting, but it is a great comfort to me.

Remember The Tinman -- Tracy Chapman

there are locks on the doors, chains stretched across

all the entries to lead inside.

there's a gate and a fence with bars to protect

from only God knows what lurks outside.

who stole your heart, left you with a space

no one or nothing can fill?

who stole your heart, who took it away,

knowing that without it you can't live?

who took away the part so essential to the whole,

left you a hollow body, skin and bone?

what robber, what thief?

who stole your heart and the key?

who stole your heart, the smile from your face,

the innocence, the light from your eyes?

who stole your heart, did you give it away?

and if so, when and why?

who took away the part so essential to the whole,

left you a hollow body, skin and bone?

what robber, what thief?

who stole your heart and the key?

now all sentiment is gone

no you have no trust in no one

who stole your heart? did you know but forget

the method and moment in time?

was it a trickster using mirror and sleight of hand,

a strong elixir or a potion that you drank?

who hurt your heart, bruised it in a place

no one or nothing can heal?

you've gone to wizards, princes and magic men

you've gone witches, the good, the bad, the indifferent

still all sentiment is gone

still you have no trust in no one

you can tear down the walls, throw your armor away

remove all blocks, barricades

you can forget there are bandits, dragons to slay

but don't forget you defend an empty space

and remember the Tinman finally found what he thought he lacked

remember the Tinman, go find your heart and take it back

who stole your heart, maybe no one can say

one day you will find it, i pray

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE Maroon 5?? Here is yet another awesome song by them.

Ragdoll - Maroon 5

How ya feelin'?

The day has had its way with both of us

And oh, I've gone out of my way

But I'm not free

From this pain I'm feeling

I was a fool to think someday

You would come around

But no, no, no

I'm not thinking that way

'Cause now i see

You are not what you seem

You are a mystery to me

Sometimes I just want to scream

I think you should just go away 'cause

There's no necessity for you to stay and

Next time you come around my way

Forget it baby

You're not comin' in

How's your day been? (yeah)

'Cause mine has taken strange and ugly turns

But no, no, no

I feel better today

Because I'm off my knees

You are not what you seem

You are a mystery to me

Sometimes I just want to scream

I think you should just go away 'cause

There's no necessity for you to stay and

Next time you come around my way

Forget it baby

You're not comin' in

A heart ready for a life of sorrow

No you can't come back tomorrow

Shut my windows

Lock my doors

'Cause my heart won't be your ragdoll anymore (yeah)

I think you should just go away 'cause

There's no necessity for you to stay and

Next time you come around my way

Forget it baby

You're not comin' in

A heart ready for a life of sorrow

No you can't come back tomorrow

Shut my windows

Lock my doors

'Cause my heart won't be your ragdoll anymore (oh oh yeah yeah)

'Cause my heart won't be your ragdoll anymore
