Healing songs/lyrics #2

315 posts in this topic

I can't find the thread to post which song you're feeling at the moment. So I thought I'd post it here. I'll follow with my healing song of the day. I'm drinking Tori.

I feel....

"Spark"

She's addicted to nicotine patches

She's addicted to nicotine patches

She's afraid of the light in the dark

6:58 are you sure where my spark is

Here

Here

Here

She's convinced she could hold back a glacier

But she couldn't keep Baby alive

Doubting if there's a woman in there somewhere

Here

You say you don't want it again

And again but you don't really mean it

You say you don't want it

This circus we're in

But you don't you don't really mean it

You don't really mean it

If the Divine master paly is perfection

Maybe next I'll give Jday a try

Trusting my soul to the ice cream assassin

Here

You say you don't want it again

And again but you don't really mean it

You say you don't want it

This cirucs we're in

But you don't you don't really mean it

You don't really mean it

How may fates turn around in the overtime

Ballerinas that have fins that you'll never find

You thought that you were the bomb yeah

Well so did I

Say you don't want it

Say you don't want it

Say you don't want it again

And again but you don't really mean it

Say you don't want it

This circus we're in

But you don't you don't really mean it

You don't really mean it

She's addicted to nicotine patches

She's afraid of the light in the dark

6:58 are you sure where my spark is

Here

My most healing song right now is...

"Northern Lad"

Had a northern lad

Well not exactly had

He moved like the sunset

God who painted that

First he love my accent

How his knees could bend

I thought we'd be ok

Me and my molasses

But I feel someting is wrong

But I fell this cake just isn't done

Don't say that you Don't

And if you could see me now

Said if you could see me now

Girls you've got to know

When it's time to turn the page

When you're only wet

Because of the rain

He don't show much these days

It's gets so fucking cold

I loved his secret places

But I can't go anymore

"you change like sugar cane"

Says me northern lad

I guess you go too far

When pianos try to be guitars

I feel the west in you

And I feel it falling apart too

Don't say that you Don't

And if you could see me now

Said if you could see me now

Girls you've got to know

When it's time to turn the page

When you're only wet

Because of the rain

When you're only wet

Because of the rain

The Woman in Your Life is You--Words and Music by Alix Dobkin

Performed by Holly Near

Holly Near is a well known Lesbian musician. I first heard her music when she began performing what was called "women's music" in the early '70's. As a heterosexual woman, I find her music to be uplifting. This is a favorite song of mine. It reminds me to listen to myself and to be true to myself.

The woman in your life

Will do what she must do

To comfort you and calm you down

And let you rest now

The woman in your life

She can rest so easily

She knows everything you do because

The woman in your life is you

The woman in your life

Knows simply what is true

She knows a simple way to touch

To make you whole now

The woman in your life

She can touch so easily

She knows everything you do because

The woman in your life is you

And who knows more about your story

About your struggles in the world

Who cares more to bless your weary shoulders than

The woman in your life

She's tryin to come through

A woman's voice with messages of

Woman's feelings

The woman in your life

She can feel so easily

She knows everything you do because

The woman in your life is you

And who is sure to give you courage

And who will surely make you strong

Who will bear this joy that's coming to you if not

The woman in your life

She is someone to pursue

She is patience and she's waiting

And she'll take you home now

The woman in your life

She can wait so easily

She knows exactly what you do because

The woman in your life is you

hey pplz,

I was listening to the CD my T gave me and one of the songs really stuck with me

How could anyone ever tell you,

You are anything less than beautiful?

How could anyone ever tell you,

You are less than whole?

How could anyone fail to notice,

That your loving is a miracle,

How deeply you're connected to my soul

Its by Shaina Noll from the CD Songs for the inner child and the first time I heard it I was completely overwhelmed because u don't here those sorts of things and its what we as survivors need to hear to be appreciated and know that we are beautiful and unique and special

*Trigger Warning*

Here is a very sad but lovely song:

Behind the Wall --Tracy Chapman

"Last night I heard the screaming

Loud voices behind the wall

Another sleepless night for me

It won’t do no good to call

The police

Always come late

If they come at all

And when they arrive

They say they can’t interfere

With domestic affairs

Between a man and his wife

And as they walk out the door

The tears well up in her eyes

Last night I heard the screaming

Then a silence that chilled my soul

I prayed that I was dreaming

When I saw the ambulance in the road

And the policeman said

’I’m here to keep the peace

Will the crowd disperse

I think we all could use some sleep’"

And a kick-ass song:

Independence Day --Martina McBride

"Well she seemed all right by dawn's early light

Though she looked a little worried and weak

She tried to pretend he wasn't drinkin' again

But daddy left the proof on her cheek

and I was only eight years old that summer

And I always seemed to be in the way

So I took myself down to the fair in town

On Independence Day

Well word gets around in a small, small town

They said he was a dangerous man

Mama was proud and she stood her ground

she knew she was on the losin' end

Some folks whispered some folks talked

but everybody looked the other way

when time ran out there was no one about

On Independence Day

Let Freedom ring, let the white dove sing

Let the whole world know that today is a

Day of reckoning

Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong

Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay, it's

Independence Day

Well she lit up the sky that fourth of July

By the time that the firemen come

They just put out the flames,

and took down some names

And sent me to the county home

Now I ain’t sayin' it's right or it's wrong

but maybe it's the only way

Talk about your revolution

It's Independence Day

Let Freedom ring,let the white dove sing

Let the whole world know that today is a

Day of reckoning

Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong

Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay, it's

Independence Day

Roll the stone away

It's Independence Day"

Another very sad song:

Inconsolable --Jonatha Brooke

"I never knew what enough was, until I'd had more than my share

I let the darkness in, and it was then I lost the dare

It was then I lost the day

There will be no prayers on your return

And there will be no party thrown

And you will find your inheritance is the silence that's grown

It is the seed that you've sown

'Cause you were the one sure thing

The one sure thing

Maybe I'm not crazy, just inconsolable

Inconsolable

There is no mystery to be revealed

And so we tell the truth and then run

I love you because I love you

And I did think that you were the one

But now I see who you've become

'Cause you were the one sure thing

The one sure thing

Maybe I'm not crazy, just inconsolable

Inconsolable."

merchant of love - by joan armatrading

you're selling emotions

that i can't buy

don't want the sadness

price is far too high

and i don't want-i don't need

your package lies

i got too much in store

someone help me find the merchant of love

selling heaven here on earch

i've bought pain and measures

of pure heartache

i've had all i can take

i'm willing to wait for lasting pleasure

with promises that won't ever break

someone help me find the merchant of love

with a full garantee

i've travelled miles and miles and miles

to find the place

with treasures much more rich than gold

i just want a heart that captures my soul

and i'm willing to wait

I've been meaning to post these lyrics for a while, but I kept forgetting! I few years ago I read The Onion Girl by Charles de Lint. In it, he talked about how he was inspired for the title by a Holly Cole song. I ended up downloading it and really liked it.

(Just a warning: the book might be triggering for CSA.)

Onion Girl

Holly Cole

I'm a bit unstable, she said

With a Cheshire grin

So many cracks in my sidewalk, boy

Don't you fall in.

Feels like the things that I've wanted

The most in this life

I can't have

So you see I've been damning the world

Before it damns me

She said I'm naked and shameless

And I'm peeling back the layers

Like an onion girl

Don't try to save me

Just stay away

'Cause I might make you cry

Like an onion girl

Like an onion girl

Second grade playground

I still haven't the nerve

Fear is under my skin

Like St. Anthony's fire

And I can't stand the burn

Yeah

So let's break a little bread, have a little laugh

I haven't laughed for a while

'Cause it's a long road back, yes

From the womb tonight

I'm naked, shameless

And peeling back the layers

Like an onion girl

Don't try to save me

Just stay away

'Cause I might make you cry, yes

Like an onion girl

Like an onion girl

She said I'm naked, shameless

And I'm peeling back the layers

Like an onion girl

Don't try to save me

Just stay away

'Cause I might make you cry

Like an onion girl

She said I'm naked and shameless

And peeling back the layers

Like, like an onion girl

Don't try to save me

Just stay away

'Cause I might make you cry

Like an onion girl

Like an onion girl, yeah

Like an onion girl

Bon Jovi just released the Demo version of "Someday I'll Be Saturday Night" (which I posted way back when), and it has different lyrics that I can kind of relate to even more then the old one so I wanted to share them here. **Be careful, they might trigger**

SOMEDAY I'LL BE SATURDAY NIGHT (DEMO - ALTERNATE LYRICS)

Hey, my name is Jim, I fought in Vietnam

My life's a bargain basement, all the good shit's gone

I just can't hold a job. Where did I go wrong?

I'm sleeping in my car; My dreams moved on

My name is Billy Jean, my love is bought and sold

I'm only sixteen, I feel a hundred years old

My foster daddy went and took my innocence away

The street life ain't much better but at least I'm getting paid

Tuesday just might go my way

It can't get worse than yesterday

Thursdays, Fridays ain't been kind

But somehow I'll survive

Chorus:

Hey, man, I'm alive

As long as I can breathe, as long as I can fight

Hey man, I know I'll get by

When I wanna die I pick up all the pieces and what's left of my pride

I'm feeling like a Monday but I wish I were a Saturday night

I can't say my name, my life is on the line

They say that I'm to blame, that I'm guilty of a crime

I wish that I could be in another time and place

With someone else's soul and someone else's face

This world ain't so cut and dry but I can't 'why?' wrong or right

I ain't here to justify what I gotta do to survive

Chorus:

Hey, man, I'm alive

As long as I can breathe,

As long as I can fight

Hey man, I know I'll get by

When I wanna die

I pick up all the pieces and what's left of my pride

I'm feeling like a Monday but I wish I were a Saturday night

I'm feeling like a Monday but someday I'll be Saturday night

Tuesday just might go my way

It can't get worse than yesterday

Thursdays, Fridays ain't been kind

Somehow I'll survive

Chorus:

Hey, man, I'm alive

As long as I can breathe, as long as I can fight

Hey man, I know I'll get by

When I wanna die, I pick up all the pieces and what's left of my pride

I'm feeling like a Monday but someday I'll be Saturday night

I'm feeling like a Monday but someday I'll be Saturday night

I'm feeling like a Monday but someday I'll be Saturday night

I know these lyric were helpful for me.

"Holy Water"

by Big & Rich

Somewhere there's a stolen halo

I use to watch her wear it well

Everything would shine wherever she would go

But looking at her now you'd 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

Holy water

She wants someone to call her angel

Someone to put the light back in her eyes

She's looking through the faces

The 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

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 me

And she says take me away

And take me farther

Surround me now

And hold, hold, hold me like holy water

Holy water

My favorite song by Tori Amos is Winter. Here are the lyrics to this beautifully haunting song:

WINTER

Snow can wait -

I forgot my mittens -

Wipe my nose -

Get my new boots on -

I get a little warm in my heart

when I think of winter -

I put my hand in my father's glove.

I run off where the drifts get deeper -

Sleeping beauty trips me with a frown.

I hear a voice, "You must learn to stand up for yourself -

'cause I can't always be around." He says,

CHORUS - "When you gonna make up your mind?

When you gonna love you as much as I do?

When you gonna make up your mind?

'Cause things are gonna change so fast -

All the white horses are still in bed -

I tell you that I'll always want you near -

You say that things change, my dear."

Boys get discovered as winter melts -

Flowers competing for the sun -

Years go by and I'm here still waiting -

Withering where some snowman was -

Mirror, mirror where's the crystal palace? -

But, I only can see myself.

Skating around the truth who I am -

But I know dad, the ice is getting thin.

CHORUS

Hair is grey and the fires are burning -

So many dreams on the shelf -

You say I wanted you to be proud of me -

I always wanted that myself.

When you gonna make up your mind?

When you gonna love you as much as I do?

When you gonna make up your mind?

'Cause things are gonna change so fast -

All the white horses have gone ahead -

I tell you that I'll always want you near -

You say that things change, my dear.

NEVER CHANGE -

All the white horses...

Another favorite, healing song of mine is Jewel's lyrics from her album Spirit.

HANDS

If I could tell the world just one thing

It would be that we're all ok.

And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful

And useless in times like these.

I won't be made useless.

I won't be idle with despair.

I will gather myself around my faith.

For light does the darkness most fear.

CHORUS:

My hands are small, I know

But they're not yours, they are my own

But they're not yours, they are my own

And I am never broken.

Poverty stole your golden shoes.

It didn't steal your laughter.

And heartache came to visit me

But I knew it wasn't ever after.

We'll fight, not out of spite.

For, someone must stand up for what's right.

'Cause where there's a man who has no voice

There ours shall go singing.

CHORUS

In the end only kindness matters.

In the end only kindness matters.

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray.

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray.

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray.

CHORUS

We are God's eyes

God's hands

God's mind

We are God's eyes

God's hands

God's heart

We are God's eyes

God's hands

God's eyes

We are God's hands.

We are God's hands.

Peace, love & happiness to you all, from Talia a.k.a. happylunagal 0:)

She Will Be Loved - Maroon 5

Beauty queen of only eighteen

She had some trouble with herself

He was always there to help her

She always belonged to someone else

I drove for miles and miles

And wound up at your door

I've had you so many times but somehow

I want more

I don't mind spending everyday

Out on your corner in the pouring rain

Look for the girl with the broken smile

Ask her if she wants to stay awhile

And she will be loved

She will be loved

Tap on my window knock on my door

I want to make you feel beautiful

I know I tend to get insecure

It doesn't matter anymore

It's not always rainbows and butterflies

It's compromise that moves us along

My heart is full and my door's always open

You can come anytime you want

I don't mind spending everyday

Out on your corner in the pouring rain

Look for the girl with the broken smile

Ask her if she wants to stay awhile

And she will be loved

She will be loved

I know where you hide

Alone in your car

Know all of the things that make you who you are

I know that goodbye means nothing at all

Comes back and begs me to catch her every time she falls

before i post any lyrics, i have sevreal diffrent types of songs that i asociate, with this form of healing, but, im not sure what would be exceptable here, cause some or, like the majority of the ones posted in this topic, and then some are just, for like when im really angry, and alot of the times, music can help me exspress my anger better then, doing something else, but i feel those songs would be triggering. so i was wondering should i not post those?

take care,

Well i've got a few lyrics, that i like to listen to, for healing purposes, or just when im angry about anything, weather the song is just for an "instant" pick me up, or one i listen to for hiting my punching bag, it helps me heal for what ever the reason, also kind of empowers me, to be strong, when not much dose.

Hellsing soundtrack/Raid - Sensou Suru Nara Yumi, Yari, Ken da Tatakae!

[if you're going to war, fight with bows, spears, and swords!]

something about that song, just makes me feel good, i think it's the beat, and the way the lyrics are sang.

Hellsing sountrack(not availible on either OST) Mr Big - Shine on me

this one is just soothing, it reminds me of my girl friend, this should just be a nice song, not triggering.

Linkin Park - Nobody's listening

the title is alittle self explaitory *shrugs* i would think it could be triggering, i know that it could me, sometimes, though i love the song.

Oasis - stop crying your heart out

beauitfull song, but gave me a panic attack the first time i heard it, later i understood the message better. so possible trigger.

Creed - Don't stop danceing

this is a beauitful song, a wonderfull message in it, but it's sad, and has made me cry before. so again possible trigger, but this has a very positive message.

Desturbed - Down with the sickness

i could sing this song and get anger out very well, though no cuss words *shrugs* unless i really need to say em. very possible trigger

Insane Clown Posse - Halls of Illusion

this song is quite errie on how well it can capture some anger on how people feel after bad and horrible things. (just derests and so on, is pretty much what this song is about.) Very high possiblity for triggering.(ignore the Great Milenko talk, it's part of they're "gimick")

Insance clown posse - F*** the world

DO NOT READ if your worried about being triggered, basicly this song is for those, who have those days, that relate to the title of the song. which im sure alot of people have had those days

this song is also like that, but pretty funny and how the beat gose, if you've seen the movie bubble boy, you've probley heard this song.

i can't find the lyrics, but if you want to look them up, just look for Blue Flannel - Having a bad day

there should be no triggering with it, except the phrase

*T*

I hate Horny people, and i hate corny people

end *T*

The undertakers "Big evil" enterance music - Your gonna pay

could be triggering, i've, only seen it as very ehh empowering i guess

this one im not going to post in link format, but i will warn it could be triggering, but again it's another very emopowering song to me

Mercy Drive - Burn in my light

Hey!

Hey!

Hey! (Hey!)

Nothing you can say (say)

Nothings gonna change what you’ve done to me (hey)

Now its time to shine (shine)

I’m gonna take what’s mine

Take what’s mine

Hey! (Hey!)

Nothing you can say (say)

Nothings gonna change what you’ve done to me (hey)

Now its time to shine (shine)

I’m gonna take what’s mine

Your gonna burn in my light

They tried so hard to follow

But no one can

Inside you’re all so hollow

You understand?

Hey! (Hey!)

Nothing you can say (say)

Nothings gonna change what you’ve done to me (hey)

Now its time to shine (shine)

I’m gonna take what’s mine

While your burning inside my light

I gave and you take and I waited for you

But I made a mistake

It’s clear that your fear is so near

Because I see the look on your face

You tried to hold me under

I held my breath

Alone and now you wonder

What I possess

Hey! (Hey)

Nothing you can say (say)

Nothings gonna change what you’ve done to me (hey)

Now its time to shine (shine)

Your gonna burn in the light

Hey!

Nothing you can say

Nothings gonna change what you’ve done to me

Now its time to shine

I’m gonna take what’s mine

While your burning inside my light

Venga boys - We like to party

Almost always makes me happy.makes me want to live for fun.

*T*

this next song even the title may be triggering, inside this waning box i will explain why it is rather uplifting to me.

Alice Cooper - Take it like a woman

the reason why i even heard this song, is because my mom really likes Alice cooper, and this was off one of his last cd's, she felt it was inspirational, on takeing the phrase "Take it like a man" (You know, saying like, come on be a man, and so on) but changeing it to take it like a woman. to me it glorifies how strong women are. and you can't can't feel that by just reading the lyrics.

while i have this box up i'll post another Alice cooper song

this one makes me cry, it can be triggering depending on my mood(i am bipolar so thats difficult) so be very forewarned, it's very triggering, but, the song, makes it know, that women, are strong, they're own person, individual, and gose through something.

Alice cooper - every woman has a name

end of *T*

i hope that none of these songs upseted anyone, and i put them in lyric form, so it's easier for you to have a chance to back out of reading them.

Here's one song I like. It's good for when I need to feel anger!

Poe- "Control"

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 your 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 breath 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 your not welcome 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

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...

Don’t you mess with me

-Lisa

im not sure if anyone posted these lyrics, but it's a song, thats been a bit conflicting for me, the song it's self is wonderful, the lyrics are great, just the video, is triggering for me.

The Foo Fighters - "the best of you!"

I've got another confession to make

I'm no fool

Everyones got their chains to break

Holdin' you

Will you bother resist to be abused?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best, of you?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best, of you?

Are you gone and on to someone new?

I needed someone to hang my head

Without your news

You gave me something that I didn't have,

But i'm no use

I was to into the head to strong to loose

My heart is under arrest again,

But I break loose

My head is giving me life or death, but I can't choose

I swear i'll never be dead, I will fuse

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best, of you?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best, of you?

Has someone taken the faith, it's real, the pain you feel

You trust, you must, confess

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best, of you?

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH

Has someone taken the faith, it's real, the pain you feel

The lies, the love, you die to hear

The hope, the starts

The broken heart,

Your trust, you must, confess

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best, of you?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best, of you?

I've got another confession to fend

I'm no fool

I'm getting tired of starting again,

Somewhere new.

Will you bother resist to be abused?

I swear i'll never be dead, I will fuse

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best, of you?

Is someone geting the best, the best, the best, the best, of you?

Has someone taken the faith, it's real the pain you feel

Your trust, you must, confess

Is someone geting the best the best, the best, the best of you?

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I haven't read through the entire thread, so sorry if some of these are repeats...

"Wash away those years" by Creed (possible *T*)

She came calling

One early morning

She showed her crown of thorns

She whispered softly

To tell her story

About how she had been wronged

As she lay lifeless

He stole her innocence

And this is how she carried on

this is how she carried on

Well I guess she closed her eyes

And just imagined everything's alright

But she could not hide her tears

'Cause they were sent to wash away those years

They were sent to wash away those years

My anger's violent

But still I'm silent

When tradegy strikes at home

I know this decadence

Is shared by millions

Remember you're not alone

Remember you're not alone

Well if you'll just close your eyes

And just imagine everythings alright

But do not hide your tears

'Cause they were sent to wash away those years

Well if you'll just close your eyes

And just imagine everythings alright

But do not hide your tears

'Cause they were sent to wash away those years

They were sent to wash away those years

Maybe we can wash away those years

For we have crossed many oceans

And we've labored in between

In life there are many quotients

An I hope I find the mean

Well if you'll just close your eyes

And just imagine everythings alright

But do not hide your tears

'Cause they were sent to wash away those years

Well if you'll just close your eyes

And just imagine everythings alright

But do not hide your tears

'Cause they were sent to wash away those years

Maybe we can wash away those years

I hope that you can wash away those years

"Ask me" by Amy Grant (beautiful song, possibly *T* for CSA)

I see her as a little girl hiding in her room

She takes another bath and she sprays her momma's perfume

To try to wipe away the scent he left behind

But it haunts her mind.

You see she's his little rag, nothing more than just a waif

And he's mopping up his need, she is tired and afraid

Maybe she'll find a way through these awful years to disappear.

Ask me if I think there's a God up in the heaven

Where did He go in the middle of her shame?

Ask me if I think there's a God up in the heavens

I see no mercy and no one down here's naming names

Nobody's naming names.

Now she's looking in the mirror at a lovely woman face

No more frightened little girl, like she's gone without a trace

Still she leaves the light burning in the hall

It's hard to sleep at all.

Still she crawls up in her bed acting quiet as a mouse

Deep inside she's listening for a creaking in the house

But noone's left to harm her, she's finally safe and sound

There's a peace she's found.

Ask her how she knows there's a God up in the heaven

Where did He go in the middle of her shame?

Ask her how she knows there's a God up in the heavens

She said His mercy is bringing her life again.

Ask me how I know there's a God up in the heaven

(How do you know?)

Where did He go in the middle of her shame

(Where did He go?)

Ask me how I know there's a God up in the heavens

(How do you know?)

She said his mercy is bringing her life again

She's coming to life again.

He's in the middle of her pain

In the middle of her shame

Mercy brings life

He's in the middle

Mercy in the middle.

So ask me how I know

Ask me how I know, yeah

Ask me how I know there's a God up in the heaven

(How do you know?)

Ask me how I know there's a God up in the heavens

(How do you know?)

Yeah, ask me how I know

(How do you know?)

Ask me

Ask me

Ask me how I know

(How do you know?)

There's a God up in the heavens

Ask me how I know there's a God up in the heavens.

"State of Mind" by Merril Bainbridge (not really healing, but I really relate to it)

Where do I go from here?

Or am I just like a clock spinning round?

Everything seems unclear

Confusion is raising its head and I can't make a sound

And I feel it

Tearing at my soul while I'm asleep

I feel it

Driving me to something I'll regret

What if I make the change?

What if I lose all my courage this time?

Everything seems so strange

Try but I can't seem to make a decision that's right

And I feel it

Pounding like a drum inside my brain

I feel it

If it doesn't stop I'll go insane

I feel it

Tearing at my soul while I'm asleep

I feel it

Driving me to something I'll regret

I feel it...I feel it

If it doesn't stop I'll go insane

I feel it...

"Hear My Song" by Jason Robert Brown

Child, I know you're weary and your eyes want to close.

The days are getting longer, we're not getting any stronger.

Trust me, Mama knows.

But lie in my arms while you're sleeping, and think of the rivers you've crossed.

I'll tell you the dreams I've been keeping for moments like this, when you're hope is lost.

Hear my song, it'll help you believe in tomorrow.

Hear my song, it'll show you the way you can shine.

Hear my song, it was made for the time when you don't know where to go.

Listen to the song that I sing: you'll be fine.

Child, I know you're frightened and your throat's parched and dry.

But just trust in Mama's singing, and the gift tomorrow's bringing.

Trust it, don't ask why.

Just lie in my arms and I'll tell you the things you know but forget.

The lies that no one ever could sell you,

I know that it's hard, but don't give up yet.

Hear my song, it'll help you believe in tomorrow.

Hear my song, it'll show you the way you can shine.

Hear my song, it was made for the times when you don't know where to go.

Listen to the song that I sing, you'll be fine.

Cause I'll be singing:

Hold on.

Hold tight.

I know it's dark right now, but just believe somehow, that soon, there will be light.

Hold on.

Hold fast.

That's not enough for some, but trust the light will come and we'll get past: you and mama, safe at last.

Hear my song, it'll help us get through till tomorrow.

Hear my song, it'll help us survive all the pain.

Hear my song, it's one thing I have that has never let me down.

Listen to the song that I sing.

Listen to the words in my heart.

Listen to the hope I can bring and you'll start to grow and shine.

Listen to the song that I sing and trust me, we'll be fine.

A new world calls across the ocean.....

"Breakaway" by Kelly Clarkson

Grew up in a small town

And when the rain would fall down

I'd just stare out my window

Dreamin' of what could be

And if I'd end up happy

I would pray

Trying hard to reach out

But when I tried to speak out

Felt like no one could hear me

Wanted to belong here

But something felt so wrong here

So I prayed I could break away

I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly

I'll do what it takes till I touch the sky

And I'll make a wish, take a chance, make a change

And break away

Out of the darkness and into the sun

But I won't forget all the ones that I love

I'll take a risk, take a chance, make a change

And break away

Wanna feel the warm breeze

Sleep under a palm tree

Feel the rush of the ocean

Get on board a fast train

Travel on a jetplane, far away

And break away

I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly

I'll do what it takes till I touch the sky

And I'll make a wish, take a chance, make a change

And break away

Out of the darkness and into the sun

I won't forget all the ones that I love

I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change

And break away

Buildings with a hundred floors

Swinging round revolving doors

Maybe I don't know where they'll take me

But, gotta keep moving on, moving on

Fly away, break away

I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly

Though it's not easy to tell you goodbye, gotta

Take a risk, take a chance, make a change

And break away

Out of the darkness and into the sun

But I won't forget of the place I come from

I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change

And break away

Music is a big part of healing for me... and even when all the words to a particular song don't apply directly to my issues, certain lines or themes stand out...

(This one is how I feel regarding having forgotten most of my life)

Carnival

Natalie Merchant

I’ve walked these streets

A virtual stage

It seemed to me

Make up on their faces

Actors took their

Places next to me

I’ve walked these streets

In a carnival

Of sights to see

All the cheap thrill seekers

The vendors and the dealers

They crowded around me

Have I been blind

Have I been lost

Inside my self and

My own mind

Hypnotized

Mesmerized

By what my eyes have seen?

I’ve walked these streets

In a spectacle of wealth and poverty

In the diamond markets

The scarlet welcome carpet

That they just rolled out for me

I’ve walked these streets

In the mad house asylum

They can be

Where a wild eyed misfit prophet

On a traffic island stopped

And he raved of saving me

Have I been blind

Have I been lost

Inside my self and

My own mind

Hypnotized

Mesmerized

By what my eyes have seen?

Have I been wrong

Have I been wise

To shut my eyes

And play along

Hypnotized

Paralyzed

By what my eyes have found

By what my eyes have seen

What they have seen?

Have I been blind

Have I been lost

Inside my self and

My own mind

Hypnotized

Mesmerized

By what my eyes have found

In that great street carnival

In that carnival?

Parasol

By Tori Amos

When I come to terms to terms with this

When I come to terms with this

When I come to terms to terms with this

My world will change for me

I haven't moved since the call came

Since the call came I haven't moved

I stare at the wall knowing on the other side

The storm that waits for me

Then the Seated Woman with a Parasol

May be the only one you can't betray

If I'm the Seated Woman with a Parasol

I will be safe in my frame

I have no need for a sea view

For a sea view I have no need

I have my little pleasures

This wall being one of these

When I come to terms to terms with this

When I come to terms with this

When I come to terms with this whip lash

of silk on wool embroidery

Then the Seated Woman with a Parasol

May be the only one you can't betray

If I'm the Seated Woman with a Parasol

I will be safe in my frame

I will be safe

In my frame

In your house

In your frame

###

Possible *T*

Girl

Tori amos

From in the shadow she calls

And in the shadow she finds a way

Finds a way

And in the shadow she crawls

Clutching her faded photograph

My image under her thumb

Yes, with a message from my heart

Yes, with a message from my heart

She's been everybody else's girl

Maybe one day she'll be her own

Everybody else's girl

Maybe one day she'll be her own

And in the doorway they stay

And laugh as violins fill with water

Screams from the bluebells

Can't make them go away

Well I'm not seventeen

But I've cuts on my knees

Falling down as the winter

Takes one more cherry tree

She's been everybody else's girl

Maybe one day she'll be her own

Everybody else's girl

Maybe one day she'll be her own

Rushin' rivers, thread so thin, limitation

Dreams with the flying pigs, turbin blue and the drugstores too

Safe in their coats and in their do's

Yeah, smother in our hearts a pillow to my dots

One day maybe one day

One day she'll be her own

And in the mist there she rides

And castles are burning in my heart

And as I twist I hold tight

And I ride to work every morning wondering why

"Sit in the chair and be good now"

And become all that they told you

The white coats enter her room

And I'm callin' my baby, callin' my baby, callin' my baby, callin'

Everybody else's girl

Maybe one day she'll be her own

Everybody else's girl

Maybe one day she'll be her own

Another possible **T**

Precious Things

By Tori Amos

So I ran faster

But it caught me here

Yes my loyalties turned

Like my ankle

In the seventh grade

Running after Billy

Running after the rain

These precious things

Let them bleed, let them wash away

These precious things

Let them break, their hold over me

He said you're really an ugly girl

But I like the way you play

And I died

But I thanked him

Can you believe that sick

Holding on to his picture

Dressing up every day

I wanna smash the faces

Of those beautiful boys

Those Christian boys

So you can make me cum

That doesn't make you Jesus

These precious things

Let them bleed, let them wash away

These precious things

Let them break, their hold over me

I remember, yes

In my peach party dress

No one dared

No one cared to tell me

Where the pretty girls are

Those demigods

With their nine-inch nails

And little fascist panties

Tucked inside the heart of every nice girl

These precious things

Let them bleed, let them wash away

These precious things

Let them break, their hold over me

###

And LAST one... lol Can you tell I love Tori Amos?

May ****T***

(I like to play this one on the piano and really hit the keys hard and loud when she sings "feel the word" and to really feel the music when she's sing "I could have, I should have, I didn't... so..." That last line is the most healing line for me. )

Icicle

Icicle Icicle where are you going

I have a hiding place when spring marches in

will you keep watch for me

I hear them calling

gonna lay down

gonna lay down

greeting the monster in our Easter dresses

Father says bow your head like the Good Book says

well I think the Good Book is missing some pages

gonna lay down

gonna lay down

and when my hand touches myself

I can finally rest my head

and when they say take from his body

I think I'll take from mine instead

Getting Off Getting Off while they're all downstairs

singing prayers sing away he's in my pumpkin p.j's

lay your book on my chest

feel the word

feel the word

feel the word

feel it

I could have

I should have

I could have flown

you know I could have

I should have

I didn't so

the person who said music is apart of they're healing, i agree with, it's apart of me, in most everything i try to acomplish, as well as a few other friends.

Before i post these lyrics, i'd like to say, that i first heard these for a video, called desire, for a wrestler Named Jeff Hardy(my girlfriend likes Wrestling) Since hearing this song, it, and Jeff hardy, have been very inspirational (though Jeff is inspiratonal to many, as well as his Brother Matt Hardy)

but when i first heard this song, i got a panic attack, not because of bad things, but because it was so inspiering, if that makes sence to anyone. and if the lyrics are confusing and don't seem inspirational to anyone, i think it may be, because of the video i saw, and what i know from my girlfriend, about Jeff Hardy. just thought i would warn anyone(since it kinda did the same thing for another friend of mine as well) who may want to hear the song.

(Jeff Hardy writes poems, and Songs too, however i can not find any of his lyrics on the net, but i can find his poems)

Our lady peace - "Not Enough"

There's nothing you can say

Nothing you can do

There's nothing in between

You know the truth

Nothing left to face

There's nothing left to lose

Nothing takes your place...

When they say you're not that strong

You're not that weak

It's not your fault

And when you climb

Up to your hill

Up to your place

I hope you're well

There's nothing left to prove

There's nothing I wont do

There's nothing like the pain

I feel for you

Nothing left to hide

Nothing left to fear

I am always here...

When they say you're not that strong

You're not that weak

It's not your fault

And when you climb

Up to your hill

Up to your place

I hope you're well

What you want

What you lost

What you had

What is gone is over

What you got

What you love

What you need

What you have is real

It's not enough,

It's not enough,

It's not enough,

It's not enough

I'm sorry,

It's not enough,

It's not enough,

It's not enough,

It's not enough

When they say you're not that strong

You're not that weak

It's not your fault

And when you climb

Up to your hill

Up to your place

I hope you're well

It's not enough

No, it's not enough

It's not enough

More Our lady peace lyrics, (i suppose they're becoming one of my more favorite bands)

*TRIGGER WARNING* i've cryed many times listening to this song.

"Innocent"

Oh, Johnny wishes he was famous

Spends his time alone in the basement

With Lennon and Cobain and a guitar and a stereo

And while he wishes he could escape this

But it all seems so contagious

Not to be yourself and faceless

In a song that has no soul

I remember feeling low

I remember losing hope

And I remember all the feelings

And the day they stopped

We are, we are all innocent

We are all innocent, we are, we are all

We are, we are all innocent

We are all innocent, we are, we are all

Oh, and Tina's losing faith in what she knows

Hates her music, hates all of her clothes

Thinks of surgery and a new nose

Every calorie's a war,

And while she wishes she was a dancer

And that she never heard of cancer

She wishes God would give her some answers

And make her feel beautiful

I remember feeling low

I remember losing hope

And I remember all the feelings

And the day they stopped

We are, we are all innocent

We are all innocent, we are, we are

We are, we are all innocent

We are all innocent, we are, we are

One day you'll have to let it go

You'll have to let it go

One day you'll stand up on your own

You'll stand up on your own

Remember losing hope

Remember feeling low

Remember all the feelings and the day they stopped

We are, we are all innocent

We are all innocent, we are, we are

We are, we are all innocent

We are all innocent, we are, we are

We are, we are all innocent

We are all innocent, we are, we are

We are, we are all innocent

We are all innocent, we are, we are

We are, we are all innocent

*End tirgger*

"Whatever( to me this is quite an inspireing song as well, to keep going, but seems more along the lines or either having enuff, or revenge .)

There's no holding me back

Im not driven by fear

Im just driven by anger

And your under attack

Just climbing up slowly

Im the one the only, I

The tease, the way you lie

The stumble in your mind

The fear, the hope inside

The hit here, the hit here

But whatever you need

Ever you got

Ever you want

Ill take back again

Watever you need

Ever you got

ever you want

I'll take back again

theres no holding me back

im not driven by fear

im just driven by anger

and your under attack

just climbing up slowly

im the one and only, I

the tease, the ways you lie

the stumble in your mind

the fear the hope inside

the hit here, the hit here

but whatever you need

ever you got

ever you want

ill take back again

whatever you need

ever you got

ever you want

ill take back

but whatever you need

ever you got

but whatever you need

ever you got

ever you want

ill take back again

whatever you need

ever you got

ever you want

ill take back again

whatever you need

ever you got

ever you want

ill take back

but whatever you need

ever you got

whatever you

whatever you

whatever you

whatever you

*I think of this as a song that relates to the fight with the two sides inside*

Perfect Grave- Social Distortion

In your room

You sleep all day so nothing gets to you

Oh

You dug a hole

But i will not crawl into it with you

If it's the last thing I do

I will not follow you to a perfect grave

And I will not stand here while you throw it all away

but I'll keep hoping that you won't fall in all the way

You take your pill

You choke 'em down but every swallow kills me

I will not follow you to a perfect grave

And I will not stand here while you throw it all away

But I'll keep hoping that you wont fall in all the way

And I'll never know what you're feeling inside

And now that you're buried alive

But I could keep digging and wreck my life too

If it's the last thing I'd do

Cold- Crossfade

Looking back at me I see

That I never really got it right

I never stopped to think of you

I'm always wrapped up in

Things I cannnot win

You are the antidote that gets me by

Something strong

Like a drug that gets me high

What I really meant to say

Is I'm sorry for the way I am

I never meant to be so cold to you

And I'm sorry about all the lies

Maybe in a different light

You could see me stand on my own again

Cause now i can see

You were the antidote that got me by

Something strong like a drug that got me high

I never meant to be so cold

I never really wanted you to see

The screwed up side of me that I keep

Locked inside of me so deep

It always seems to get to me

I never really wanted you to go

So many things you should have known

I guess for me theres just no hope

I never meant to be so cold

*I love this song (and Mae of course)! Ignore the 1st line, because I don't know if it relates to this post's topic*

Anything- Mae

love,

its the wave i ride,

that won't ever reach the shore.

overwhelmed by the tide

and wanting nothing more, tonight.

than to take this time

and make it all mine.

its coming around again.

every now and again sometimes,

i get lost on the wind of a dream.

the air gets clean and the seas get wide.

and i can do anything.

the pain it won't even cross my mind.

there is wonder in everything.

the rope gets loose and the chains unbind.

and i can do anything.

hope,

its the light that strikes,

that burns inside of me.

its a blinding light,

but somehow i can see, again.

when i've lost my way.

its becoming very clear.

and its coming around again.

every now and again sometime,

i get lost on the wind of a dream.

the air gets clean and the seas get wide

and i can do anything.

the pain it won't even cross my mind.

there is wonder in everything.

the rope gets loose, and the chains unbind.

and i can do anything.

somewhere between the darkest and the light.

my spirit takes to fly.

the colors fill the sky,

and i am free, oh ohh.

its coming around again.

its coming around again.

its coming around again.

every now and again sometime,

i get lost on the wind of a dream.

the air gets clean and the seas get wide

and i can do anything.

the pain it won't even cross my mind.

there is wonder in everything.

the rope gets loose, the chains unbind.

and i can do anything.

every now and again sometime,

i get lost on the wind of a dream

the rope gets loose, the chains unbind.

and i can do anything.

Letting the Cables Sleep- Bush

You in the dark

You in the pain

You on the run

Living a hell

Living your ghost

Living your end

Never seem to get in the place that I belong

Don't wanna lose the time

Lose the time to come

Whatever you say it's alright

Whatever you do it's all good

Whatever you say it's alright

Silence is not the way

We need to talk about it

If heaven is on the way

If heaven is on the way

You in the sea

On a decline

Breaking the waves

Watching the lights go down

Letting the cables sleep

Whatever you say it's alright

Whatever you do it's all good

Whatever you say it's alright

Silence is not the way

We need to talk about it

If heaven is on the way

We'll wrap the world around it

If heaven is on the way

If heaven is on the way

I'm a stranger in this town

I'm a stranger in this town

If heaven is on the way

If heaven is on the way

I'm a stranger in this town

I'm a stranger in this town

*Don't know how healing this is but it relates when things aren't great*

Hurt-NIN

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 this crown of shit

upon my liar's chair

full of broken thoughts

I cannot repair

beneath the stains of time

the feeling disappear

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

*or this one either*

Here to Stay- Korn

This time, taking it away

I've got a problem, with me getting in the way,

Not by design

So I take my face and bash it into a mirror.

I won't have to see the pain (Bleed, Bleed)

This state is elevating, as the hurt turns into hating.

Anticipating, all the fucked up feelings again.

The hurt inside is fading

This shit's gone way too far.

All this time I've been waiting

No I can not grieve anymore.

For what's inside awaking.

I'm not, I'm not a whore

You've taken everything and oh I can not give anymore.

My mind is done with this

Okay, I've got a question.

"Can I throw it all away?"

Take back what's mine

So I take my time, guiding the blade down the line

Each cut closer to the vein (Bleed, Bleed)

This state is elevating, as the hurt turns into hating.

Anticipating, all the fucked up feelings again.

The hurt inside is fading

This shit's gone way too far.

All this time I've been waiting

No I can not grieve anymore.

For what's inside awaking.

I'm not, I’m not a whore

You've taken everything and oh I can not give anymore.

I'm here to stay (bring it down)

Bring it down

Gunna break it down

GUNNA BREAK IT!

This state is elevating, as the hurt turns into hating.

Anticipating, all the fucked up feelings again.

The hurt inside is fading

This shit's gone way too far.

All this time I've been waiting

No I can not grieve anymore.

For what's inside awaking.

I'm not, I'm not a whore

You've taken everything and oh I can not give anymore.

Give anymore.

Pros and Cons of Breathing- Fall Out Boy

Bury me standing under your window with the cinder block in hand

Yeah cause no one will ever feel like this again

And if I could move I'm sure it would only be to crawl back to

you

I must have dragged my guts a block... they were gone by the

time we (talked)...

I want to hate you half as much as I hate myself

But you know that I could crush you with my voice

Stood on my roof and tried to see you forgetting about me

Hide the details I don't want to know a thing

I hate the way you say my name like it's something secret

My pen is the barrel of the gun. Remind me which side you should

be on

I wish that I was as invisible as you make me feel.

Sometimes You Can't Make it on Your Own - U2

Tough, you think you've got the stuff

You're telling me and anyone

You're hard enough

You don't have to put up a fight

You don't have to always be right

Let me take some of the punches

For you tonight

Listen to me now

I need to let you know

You don't have to go it alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror

And it's you when I don't pick up the phone

Sometimes you can't make it on your own

We fight all the time

You and I...that's alright

We're the same soul

I don't need...I don't need to hear you say

That if we weren't so alike

You'd like me a whole lot more

Listen to me now

I need to let you know

You don't have to go it alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror

And it's you when I don't pick up the phone

Sometimes you can't make it on your own

I know that we don't talk

I'm sick of it all

Can - you - hear - me - when - I -

Sing, you're the reason I sing

You're the reason why the opera is in me...

Where are we now?

I've still got to let you know

A house still doesn't make a home

Don't leave me here alone...

And it's you when I look in the mirror

And it's you that makes it hard to let go

Sometimes you can't make it on your own

Sometimes you can't make it

The best you can do is to fake it

Sometimes you can't make it on your own

Passive- A Perfect Circle

Dead as dead can be

The doctor tells me

But I just can't believe him

Ever the optimistic one

I'm sure of your ability

To become my perfect enemy

Wake up and face me

Don't play dead 'cause maybe

Someday I’ll walk away and say

You disappoint me

Maybe you're better off this way

Leaning over you here

Cold and catatonic

I catch a brief reflection

Of what you could and might have been

It's your right and your ability

To become my perfect enemy

Wake up

(Why can’t you?)

And face me

(Come on now)

Don't play dead

(Don’t play dead)

'Cause maybe

(Because maybe)

Someday

(Someday)

I’ll walk away and say

You disappoint me

Maybe you're better off this way

Maybe you're better off this way

You're better off this

Maybe you're better off...

Wake up

(Why can't you?)

And face me

(Come on now)

Don't play dead

(Don’t play dead)

'Cause maybe

(Because maybe)

Someday

(Someday)

I’ll walk away and say

You fucking disappoint me

Maybe your better off this WAY!

Go ahead and play dead

(GO!)

I know that you can hear this

(GO!)

Go ahead and play dead

(GO!)

Why can't you turn and face me?

(WAKE UP!)

Why can't you turn and face me?

(WAKE UP!)

Why can't you turn and face me?

(WAKE UP!)

Why can't you and face me?

(GO!)

You fucking disappoint me

Passive-aggressive bullshit...

*Wash Away Those Years was already posted by someone*

Inside Us All- Creed

When I'm all alone

And no one else is there

Waiting by the phone

To remind me

I'm still here

When shadows paint the scenes

Where spotlights used to fall

And I'm left wondering

Is it really worth it all?

There's a peace inside us all

Let it be your friend

It will help you carry on In the end

There's a peace inside us all

Life can hold you down

When you're not looking up

Can't you hear the sounds?

Hearts beating out loud

Although the names change

Inside we're all the same

Why can't we tear down these walls?

To show the scars we're covering

There's a peace inside us all

Let it be your friend

It will help you carry on In the end

There's a peace inside us all

There's a peace

Oh there's a peace inside us all

Let it be... Oh, I said let it be, let it be your friend

There's a peace inside us all

Let it be your friend

It will help you carry on In the End

There's a peace inside us all

There's a peace, inside us all, Inside us all

Let it be, Let it be, Let it be,

Let it be, Let it be, Let it be,

Let it be, Let it be your friend.

Weathered- Creed

I lie awake on a long, dark night

I can't seem to tame my mind

Slings and arrows are killing me inside

Maybe I can't accept the life that's mine

No I can't accept the life that's mine

Simple living is my desperate cry

Been trading "love" with indifference yeah it suits me just fine

I try to hold on but I'm calloused to the bone

Maybe that's why I feel alone

Maybe that's why I feel alone

Me..I'm rusted and weathered

Barely holding together

I'm covered with skin that peels and it just won't heal

The sun shines and I can't avoid the light

I think I'm holding on to life too tight

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust

Sometimes I feel like giving up

Sometimes I feel like giving up

Me...I'm rusted and weathered

Barely holding together

I'm covered with skin that peels and it just won't heal

The day reminds me of you

The night hides your truth

The earth is a voice

Speaking to you

Take all this pride

And leave it behind

Because one day it ends

One day we die

Believe what you will

That is your right

But I choose to win

So I choose to fight

To fight

Parabola- Tool

We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment,

We are Choosing to be here, right now. Hold on, stay inside...

This hoooooly realityy, this hoooooly experience.

Choosing to be here in...

This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in

This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal all this pain is an illusion.

Aliiiiive!

In this hoooooly reality, in this hoooooly experience. Choosing to be here in...

This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in

This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal all this pain is an illusion...

Twirling round with this familiar parable.

Spinning, weaving round each new experience.

Recognize this as a holy gift and, celebrate this

(chance to beeeeee alive and breathing 2x)

This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality.

Embrace this moment. Remember. we are eternal.

all this pain is an illusion.

I heard this song Silence Broken a few months ago and started crying because it brought my memories about abuse to my mind. It described my experiences and feelings almost perfectly. It has helped me to deal with those memories and fear. You can download the song for free from the singer and songwriter Alarandiia's page http://www.alarandiia.com/12334.html.

Silence Broken

by Alarandiia

Silence your screams little girl

No one can hear your cries

Silence your screams little girl

And just close your eyes...

Closer now

Too close for comfort

Closer to the loss of control

Restrained at the wrists

It's hurting me

Soft hands became fists

This doesn't feel right

It should feel right

But it doesn't...

Closer still

Closer to the rest of my life

Innocence stolen from me

Why'd you take it?

Crimson tainted impurities

I'll never be the same again...

Silence your screams little girl

She cries at night, all night

No one can hear your cries

I hear her every night

Silence your screams little girl

She cries at night, all night

And just close your eyes...

I should have left sooner...

Disbelief

I can't believe he's doing this to me

So hurtfully,

Carelessely,

I thought he loved me

But he only loved a part of me

Silence your screams little girl

She cries at night, all night

No one can hear your cries

I hear her every night

Silence your screams little girl

She cries at night, all night

And just close your eyes...

Years go by and still I try

To understand

Why his hands were so cold

Years go by, the memories came back

I know he heard

When I whispered "no"...

I've silenced those screams, not a little girl

The tears, no longer in my eyes

I've silenced those screams, never again a little girl

Just a victim

Who’s learnt again

How to smile

--

Caged is an anxious song that deals with sorrow, pain and deceit.

Caged

by Within Temptation

These are the darkest clouds

To have surrounded me

Now I find my self alone caught in a cage

There's no flower to be found in here

Not withering

Or pale to me

Everyone with a friendly face

Seems to hide some secret inside

(Chorus)

He told me he loved me

While he laughed in my face

He just led me astray

He took my virtue

I feel so cold inside

Sorrow has frozen my mind

My heart is covered

With thoughts entangled

How could it ever have felt so real?

Is there a place more lonely than I feel within?

Could I have seen?

Could I have known?

I just took it as the truth

Everyone with a friendly face

Seems to hide some secret inside

(Chorus)

Always there to remind me

To keep me from believing

That someone might be there

Who’ll free me and never ever lease me

(Chorus)

--

I find this song very encouraging.

Soar

by Christina Aguilera

When they push when they pull, tell me can you hold on

When they say you should change,

Can you lift your head high and stay strong

Will you give up, give in

When your heart’s crying out that it’s wrong

Will you love you for you at the end of it all

In life, there’s gonna be times when you’re feeling low

And in your mind insecurity seems to take control

We start to look outside ourselves

For acceptance and approval

We keep forgettin’ that the one thing we should know is

(Chorus)

Don’t be scared to fly alone,

Find a path that is your own

Love will open every door

Its in your hands, the world is yours

Don’t hold back and always know

All the answers they will unfold

What are you waiting for,

Spread your wings and soar

The boy who wonders is he good enough for them

Keeps tryin’ to please ’em all

But he just never seems to fit in

Then there the girl who thinks

She’ll never ever be good enough for him

Keeps tryin’ to change

And that’s a game she’ll never win

Now in life there’s gonna be times

When you’re feeling low

And in your mind insecurities

Seem to take control

We start to look outside ourselves

For acceptance and approval

We keep forgetting that the one thing

We should know is

(Chorus)

In the mirror is where she comes face to face with her fears

Her own reflection now foreign to her after all these years

All of her life she has tried to be something beside herself

Now time has passed

And she’s ended up someone else with regret

What is it in us that makes us feel the need

To keep pretending

Gotta let ourselves be

(Repeat chorus 2x)

Haven't posted this until now because little kel kept protesting that it was her lullaby. But I explained to her that maybe it would make others feel safe too. So she finally said it was ok.

Lullabye For a Stormy Night (Download here)

little child, be not afraid

though rain pounds harshly against the glass

like an unwanted stranger, there is no danger

I am here tonight

little child, be not afraid

though thunder explodes and lightning flash

illuminates your tear-stained face

I am here tonight

and someday you'll know

that nature is so

the same rain that draws you near me

falls on rivers and land

on forests and sand

makes the beautiful world that you'll see

in the morning

little child, be not afraid

though storm clouds mask your beloved moon

and its candlelight beams, still keep pleasant dreams

I am here tonight

little child, be not afraid

though wind makes creatures of our trees

and their branches to hands, they're not real, understand

and I am here tonight

for you know, once even I was a

little child, and I was afraid

but a gentle someone always came

to dry all my tears, trade sweet sleep for fears

and to give a kiss goodnight

well now I am grown

and these years have shown

that rain's a part of how life goes

but it's dark and it's late

so I'll hold you and wait

'til your frightened eyes do close

and I hope that you'll know...

everything's fine in the morning

the rain'll be gone in the morning

but I'll still be here in the morning

*Don't know how healing this is but it relates when things aren't great*

Hurt-NIN

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 this crown of shit

upon my liar's chair

full of broken thoughts

I cannot repair

beneath the stains of time

the feeling disappear

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

*or this one either*

Here to Stay- Korn

This time, taking it away

I've got a problem, with me getting in the way,

Not by design

So I take my face and bash it into a mirror.

I won't have to see the pain (Bleed, Bleed)

This state is elevating, as the hurt turns into hating.

Anticipating, all the fucked up feelings again.

The hurt inside is fading

This shit's gone way too far.

All this time I've been waiting

No I can not grieve anymore.

For what's inside awaking.

I'm not, I'm not a whore

You've taken everything and oh I can not give anymore.

My mind is done with this

Okay, I've got a question.

"Can I throw it all away?"

Take back what's mine

So I take my time, guiding the blade down the line

Each cut closer to the vein (Bleed, Bleed)

This state is elevating, as the hurt turns into hating.

Anticipating, all the fucked up feelings again.

The hurt inside is fading

This shit's gone way too far.

All this time I've been waiting

No I can not grieve anymore.

For what's inside awaking.

I'm not, I’m not a whore

You've taken everything and oh I can not give anymore.

I'm here to stay (bring it down)

Bring it down

Gunna break it down

GUNNA BREAK IT!

This state is elevating, as the hurt turns into hating.

Anticipating, all the fucked up feelings again.

The hurt inside is fading

This shit's gone way too far.

All this time I've been waiting

No I can not grieve anymore.

For what's inside awaking.

I'm not, I'm not a whore

You've taken everything and oh I can not give anymore.

Give anymore.

Weathered- Creed

I lie awake on a long, dark night

I can't seem to tame my mind

Slings and arrows are killing me inside

Maybe I can't accept the life that's mine

No I can't accept the life that's mine

Simple living is my desperate cry

Been trading "love" with indifference yeah it suits me just fine

I try to hold on but I'm calloused to the bone

Maybe that's why I feel alone

Maybe that's why I feel alone

Sometimes I feel like giving up

Sometimes I feel like giving up

The day reminds me of you

The night hides your truth

The earth is a voice

Speaking to you

Take all this pride

And leave it behind

Because one day it ends

One day we die

Believe what you will

That is your right

But I choose to win

So I choose to fight

To fight

Here are lyrics to two old Evanescence songs that I find comforting. You can download Give Unto Me here.

Give unto me

by Evanescence

I've been watching you from a distance

But distance sees through your disguise

All I want from you is your hurting

I want to heal you

I want to save you from the dark

Give unto me your troubles

I'll endure your suffering

Place onto me your burdens

I'll drink your deadly poison

Why should I care if they hurt you

Somehow it matters more to me

Than if I were hurting myself

Save you, I'll save you

Fear not the flame of my love's candle

Give unto me your troubles

I'll endure your suffering

Place onto me your burdens

I'll drink your deadly poison

Give unto me your troubles

I'll endure your suffering

Place onto me your burdens

I'll drink your deadly poison

Fear not the flame of my love's candle

Let it be the sun in your world of darkness

Listen to the rain

by Evanescence

Listen, listen, listen...

Listen to each drop of rain

Whispering secrets in vain

Frantically searching for someone to hear

That story be more than it hides

"Please don't let go

Can't we stay for a while?

It's just to hard to say goodbye."

Listen to the rain

Aa...ah

Listen listen listen listen listen listen to the rain

Weeping

Ooh...

Listen, listen...

I stand alone in the storm

Suddenly sweet words they come

"Hurry," they say "for you haven't much time

Open your eyes to the love around you

You may feel you're alone

But I'm here still with you

You can do what you dream

Just remember to listen to the rain"

Ooh...

Listen

Poem- Taproot

Overbearing panic attack entrenching my veins

In an hour I'll be okay

I pray this pain will go away permanently someday

I've seen more than

I should have to

I've seen this on my own

This song is a poem to myself

It helps me to live

In case of fire, break the glass

And move on into your own, your own

Reoccurring drowning effect entrenching my brain

I hope you'll be okay someday

So I can say that you moved on in the right way

We've seen this and

We've breathed this and

We've lived this on our own

This song is a poem to myself

It helps me to live

In case of fire, break the glass

And move on into your own

This song is a poem to myself

It helps me to live

In case of fire, break the glass

And move on into your own, your own

This song is a poem to myself

It helps me to live

In case of fire, break the glass

And move on into your own, your own

This song is a poem to myself

It helps me to live

In case of fire, break the glass

And move on into your own, your own

Your own, your own
