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

[b]The Woman in Your Life is You[/b]--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

[i]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[/i]

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:

[b]Behind the Wall --Tracy Chapman[/b]

[i]"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’"[/i]

And a kick-ass song:

[b]Independence Day --Martina McBride[/b]

[i]"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"[/i]

Another very sad song:

[b]Inconsolable --Jonatha Brooke[/b]

[i]"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." [/i]

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 [url="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0312873972/"]The Onion Girl[/url] by Charles de Lint. In it, he talked about how he was inspired for the title by a [url="http://www.hollycole.com/"]Holly Cole[/url] 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**


[i]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]

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:)

[b]She Will Be Loved - Maroon 5[/b]

[i]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.


[url="http://hellsing.keenspace.com/resources/music/raid_war.html"]Hellsing soundtrack/Raid - Sensou Suru Nara Yumi, Yari, Ken da Tatakae!
[If you're going to war, fight with bows, spears, and swords!]
[/url]
something about that song, just makes me feel good, i think it's the beat, and the way the lyrics are sang.

[url="http://hellsing.keenspace.com/resources/music/shine.html"]Hellsing sountrack(not availible on either OST) Mr Big - Shine on me[/url]
this one is just soothing, it reminds me of my girl friend, this should just be a nice song, not triggering.


[url="http://www.letssingit.com/linkin-park-nobodys-listening-z7qkdjm.html"]Linkin Park - Nobody's listening[/url]
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.


[url="http://www.letssingit.com/cgi-exe/am.cgi"]Oasis - stop crying your heart out[/url]
beauitfull song, but gave me a panic attack the first time i heard it, later i understood the message better. so possible trigger.


[url="http://www.letssingit.com/cgi-exe/am.cgi"]Creed - Don't stop danceing[/url]
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.


[url="http://www.letssingit.com/disturbed-down-with-the-sickness-q9p1wcc.html"]Desturbed - Down with the sickness[/url]
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

[url="http://www.letssingit.com/cgi-exe/am.cgi"]Insane Clown Posse - Halls of Illusion[/url]
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")


[url="http://www.letssingit.com/insane-clown-posse-fuck-the-world-rqpgn62.html"]Insance clown posse - F*** the world[/url]
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*






[url="http://www.letssingit.com/cgi-exe/am.cgi"]The undertakers "Big evil" enterance music - Your gonna pay[/url]
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



[url="http://www.letssingit.com/cgi-exe/am.cgi"]Venga boys - We like to party[/url]
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.






[url="http://www.letssingit.com/cgi-exe/am.cgi"]Alice Cooper - Take it like a woman[/url]
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.
[url="http://www.letssingit.com/cgi-exe/am.cgi"]Alice cooper - every woman has a name[/url]












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

[b]"Wash away those years" by Creed[/b] (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


[b]"Ask me" by Amy Grant[/b] (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.


[b]"State of Mind" by Merril Bainbridge[/b] (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...


[b]"Hear My Song" by Jason Robert Brown [/b]
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.....


[b]"Breakaway" by Kelly Clarkson[/b]
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 Edited by onlyhope

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

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

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

"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

the stumble in your mind
the fear the hope inside
the hit here, the hit here

*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.

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 [url="http://www.alarandiia.com/12334.html"]http://www.alarandiia.com/12334.html[/url].

[b]Silence Broken [/b]
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.

[b]Caged[/b]
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.

[b]Soar [/b]
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) Edited by Elfstar

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.

[b]Lullabye For a Stormy Night [/b][url="http://viennateng.com/listen/"](Download here)[/url]

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 Edited by onlyhope

[quote name='reallydon'tknow' date='Jun 30 2005, 10:39 PM']*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.

Here are lyrics to two old Evanescence songs that I find comforting. You can download Give Unto Me [url="http://www.bringmetolife.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownload&cid=13"]here[/url].

[b]Give unto me[/b]
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


[b]Listen to the rain[/b]
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
