[b]Cold Contagious[/b]

[i]
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
Cold
Contagious[/i]

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***

[b]Hurt - Nine Inch Nails[/b]

[i]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[/i]

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 [url="http://www.lourdsmusic.com/rainn/"]here[/url].

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.


[b]Ordinary World -- Duran Duran[/b]

[i]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]

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!

[u][b]Unforgivable[/b][/u]
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)


[u][b]Nice, Naive, and Beautiful[/b][/u]
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


[u][b]Damaged[/b][/u]
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:

[b]Grey Street[/b] 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.

[b]Fly Away[/b] 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

[b]Calling All Angels by Jane Siberry & k.d. Lang[/b]

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)

[b]Mistakes I Made by Fran Lucci[/b]


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.

[b]Mrs. Potter's Lullaby by The Counting Crows[/b]



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

[b]I Will Remember You by Sarah Mclachlan[/b]


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

[b]Ghost by The Indigo Girls[/b]


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

J'ai allumé le feu (i lit the fire)
Mes chagrins, mes plaisirs (my sadnesses, my happinesses)
Je n'ai plus besoin d'eux (i don't need them anymore)
Balayés mes amours ((i dunno) the lovers)
Avec leurs trémolos (with their (i dunno))
Balayés pour toujours ((i dunno) for always)
Je repars à zéro (i repair at zero)

Non, rien de rien (no nothing of nothing)

Car mes joies (except my joys)
Aujourd'hui (today)
Ça commence avec toi... (it starts with you...)


~~I haven't heard this song in aaaaages. so if its wrong, i'm sorry Lou!!~

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.

[b]Ragdoll - Maroon 5[/b]

[i]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[/i]
