This is another Ginny Owens song... it's a happier song, reminds me of what it will feel like when we have made it the end of our journey. It's called "Free."

<center>Turning molehills into mountains,
Making big deals out of small ones,
Bearing gifts as if they're burdens,
This is how it's been.
Fear of coming out of my shell,
Too many things I can't do too well,
Afraid I'll try real heard and I'll fail -
This is how it's been.
Till the day you pounded on my heart's door,
And you shouted joyfully,
"You're not a slave anymore"

<i>(Chorus)</i>
You're free to dance-
Forget about your two left feet
And you're free to sing-
Even joyful noise is music to me
And you're free to love,
Cause I've given you My love,
and it's made you free
I have set you free

My mind finds hard to believe
That You became humanity
and changed the course of history,
Because You loved me so.
And my heart cannot understand
Why You'd accept me as I am,
But You say You've always had a plan,
And that's all I need to know.
So when I am consumed by what the world will say,
It's then You're singing to me,
As you remove my chains

<i>(Repeat chorus)</i>

Free from worry, free from envy and denial
Free to live, free to give, free to smile

The band??  Cool Hand Luke.   give them a round of applause because they have wonderful music, and to me, very healing lyrics.  Also...they're dancerific.  Awesome for a group of young guys.

ONE TIME
Let me tell you what He did for me
With the weight of my worries tearing my sleeve
I cried to my Father, the end of all hope,
“Show me the rope, which way to go”
As I fell asleep He took away my worries
He picked me up and put me on His shoulders

I could see for miles
He showed me that the mountain I’m climbing
Is not a mountain at all
But a gentle slope leading home

There are mountains
towering ahead
He says to me, “These are mine,
Hold my hand you’ll be fine”

I could see for miles
He showed me that the mountain I’m climbing
Is not a mountain at all
But a gentle slope leading home

“The mountains are mine”

NOBODY HUGS A ROSE
She cannot see the ocean
For the trees that block the way
She cannot see forever ‘cause she can’t see past today
She’s driving home so empty
From another one night stand
With a guy who doesn’t care but just wants to feel like a man
If only falling in love was as easy as making it

But nobody hugs a rose
Nobody hugs a rose
Nobody hugs a rose
She’s all alone ‘cause nobody hugs a rose

She has no ring to speak of
Save the one her daddy left
He stepped out of her life leaving some jewelry on a shelf
Seems like every man she loves ends up walking away

‘Cause nobody hugs a rose
Nobody hugs a rose
Nobody hugs a rose
She’s all alone ‘cause nobody hugs a rose

There’s never been a prettier soul
No, there’s never been a lovelier rose
But she can never wipe away all her tears
She cries herself to sleep and wakes up to the same old fears
She only needs someone to hold her right now
A man who would wear those thorns like a crown

She steps into her bedroom
And falls onto the floor
She cries out to her savior
That she just can’t take no more
Jesus says, “Girl, I’ve been waiting
For this very day
When I could pick you up and strip those dirty thorns away”
Nevermore will she think in her old futile ways

That nobody hugs a rose
Nobody hugs a rose
Nobody hugs a rose
She’s not alone ‘cause somebody loved a rose


SIDEWAYS
Last night my shadow ran from me
It bowed its head in shame
I can't bear my reflection
I can't even write my name
Sometimes i choose to forget about you
Sometimes i choose to ignore the truth
Just like the man from chapter three
I tried to hide
From fleeing, familiar
White light
Sometimes i choose to forget about you
Sometimes i choose to ignore the truth
How sweet the name
How sweet the face
That i long to touch with dirty hands
I'm seeing sideways
Because i've fallen down again
And it's so hard to find my way


NEXT TO LAST
I woke up this morning
With some things on my mind
As i try to find the truth in what i thought was right
Slowly i'm sinking beneath my reasons
I shattered Your dreams into what may seem to be
A million pieces
I struggle to find what's standing here
Put me back together
And i know that You will be right by my side
I'm tired of running away from You
Forgive me i know not what i do
Do you love Me
(Jesus, Your name is above all names)
Do you love me
(You're everything to me)
What would you do for Me
Your only hope lies at the center of a cross


YESTERDAY IS GONE
Yesterday I said something I really shouldn't say
I know you're watching every move I make
I turned around but now I'm right back where I started from
Another day I thank God for all my past mistakes
I know there's going to be a price to pay
as long as I know God is with me
everything is going to be away
when things start to turn around
I know I can't forget my past
with the help of a loving grace
I just got to make sure everything's alright
now I know you're hearing every word I say
I never ment to hurt you anyway
I know my actions hurt but pleace allow me one more chance
and Today I cant admit that there is nothings wrong
but I know I've lived with this far too long
to tear me down I've turned around from where I started from.


GIVE UP
You've gone into town too early
you've given up way too soon
I don't know what you're goin through
please know that I am there for you
Oh God I've given all I can
I wonder if you understand
this love you give to use each day is more than i can comprehend
I can't carry on this way
I need you more and more each day
Oh God come and heal our hearts.
Times are hard and they just got harder
learn from mistakes in the past
just have faith and God will lead you
to those thoughts of joy and happiness

Blurry by Puddle of Mudd (Sorry if this has been posted before)

Everything's so blurry
and everyone's so fake
and everybody's empty
and everything is so messed up
pre-occupied without you
I cannot live at all
My whole world surrounds you
I stumble then I crawl

You could be my someone
you could be my scene
you know that i'll protect you
from all of the obscene
I wonder what your doing
imagine where you are
there's oceans in between us
but that's not very far

Can you take it all away
can you take it all away
well ya shoved it in my face
this pain you gave to me
Can you take it all away
can you take it all away
well ya shoved it my face

Everyone is changing
there's noone left that's real
to make up your own ending
and let me know just how you feel
cause I am lost without you
I cannot live at all
my whole world surrounds you
I stumble then I crawl

You could be my someone
you could be my scene
you know that i will save you
from all of the unclean
I wonder what your doing
I wonder where you are
There's oceans in between us
but that's not very far

[Chorus]

Nobody told me what you thought
nobody told me what to say
everyone showed you where to turn
told you when to runaway
nobody told you where to hide
nobody told you what to say
everyone showed you where to turn
showed you when to runaway

[Chorus]

This pain you give to me

you take it all
you take it all away...
explain again to me
you take it all away
explain again to me
take it all away
explain again

Fee fi fo - The Cranberries

Fee fi fo she smells his body
She smells his body
And it makes her sick to her mind.

He has got so much to answer for
To answer for
To ruin a child's mind.

How could you touch something so innocent and pure?
Obscure
How could you get satisfaction
From the body of a child?
You're vile, sick.

CHORUS:
It's true what people say,
God protect the ones who help themselves in their own way
It's true what people say
God protect the ones who help themselves in their own way.

He was sitting in her bedroom
In her bedroom
And now what should she do?
She's got so much insecurity
And his impurity
Is was a gathering gloom.

How could you touch something so innocent and pure?
Obscure.
How could you get satisfaction from the body of a child?
You're vile, sick.

It's true what people say,
God protect the ones who help themselves in their own way.
But I've been wondering to myself...
Who'll protect the ones
Who can't protect themselves?

How did I miss this post???  I could go on and on with what songs I listen to over and over again, but here are a few...

Runaway Train by Soul Asylum

Call you up in the middle of the night
Like a firefly without a light
You were there like a blowtorch burning
I was a key that could use a little turning

So tired that I couldn't even sleep
So many secrets I couldn't keep
I promised myself I wouldn't weep
One more promise I couldn't keep

It seems no one can help me now,
I'm in too deep, there's no way out
This time I have really led myself astray

Runaway train, never going back
Wrong way on a one-way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Can you help me remember how to smile?
Make it somehow all seem worthwhile
How on earth did I get so jaded?
Life's mystery seems so faded

I can go where no one else can go
I know what no one else knows
Here I am just a-drownin' in the rain
With a ticket for a runaway train

And everything seems cut and dried,
Day and night, earth and sky,
Somehow I just don't believe it

Runaway train, never going back
Wrong way on a one-way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Bought a ticket for a runaway train
Like a madman laughing at the rain
A little out of touch, a little insane
It's just easier than dealing with the pain

Runaway train, never going back
Wrong way on a one-way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Runaway train, never coming back
Runaway train, tearing up the track
Runaway train, burning in my veins
I run away but it always seems the same
_________________________________________________________

I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor

At first I was afraid I was petrified
Kept thinkin' I could never live without you by my side;
But then I spent so many nights
Thinkin' how you did me wrong
And I grew strong
And so you're back from outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I'd've known for just one second you'd back to bother me

Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
('cause) you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Did I crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die?
Oh no, not.I. I will survive
Oh as long as I know how to love I know I'll stay alive;
I've got all my life to live,
I've got all my love to give and I'll survive,
I will survive. Hey hey.
It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Kept trying' hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart,
And I spent oh so many nights
Just feeling sorry for myself. I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high
And you see me somebody new
I'm not that chained up little person still in love with you,
And so you feel like droppin' in
And just expect me to be free,
Now I'm savin' all my lovin' for someone who's lovin' me
Go on now.. etc.
_________________________________________________________

You could never know what it's like
Your blood like winter freezes just like ice
And there's a cold lonely light that shines from you
You'll wind up like the wreck you hide behind that mask you use

And did you think this fool could never win
Well look at me, I'm coming back again
I got a taste of love in a simple way
And if you need to know while I'm still standing you just fade away

Don't you know I'm still standing better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid
I'm still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah
I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah

Once I never could hope to win
You starting down the road leaving me again
The threats you made were meant to cut me down
And if our love was just a circus you'd be a clown by now

Crawling by Linkin Park

Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Comsuming, confusing
This lack of self-control I fear is never-ending
Controlling, I can't seem...

To find myself again
My walls are closing in
I've felt this way before
So insecure...

Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Discomfort endlessly has pulled itself upon me
Distructing, reacting
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
It's haunting, how I can't seem...

To find myself again
My walls are closing in
I've felt this way before
So insecure...

Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Comsuming...
This lack of self-control I fear is never-ending
Controlling...

Confusing what is real

I could go on and on, but I'll stop there.  I have to agree wtih the other choices people wrote!! I love the songs Luka and Fade, great music!

I liked a lot of the songs that have already been mentioned and I was going to add 'Bring on the Rain'.  but I saw that some one else already has.  

I really enjoy Bebo Norman's songs and I think that they have a lot of meaning in them.  They do touch on religion though so be careful...  :)


I'm Alright
by Bebo Norman

 
I've got a little hope in my pocket, I want to share a bit with you
Just be careful that you don't drop it, but don't worry if you do
'Cause I got broken down inside me, and I might just need some help
But I will get by

And I've got demons in my history, got bone beneath my skin
But I've been taken by a mystery, yes, I've been taken in
And sometimes voices down inside me try to fight me for myself
I will get by

What have I got to live for
If there's nothing beating in my chest
What have I got to live for
When this world starts turning, it's burning me up
I'm alright

I used to think love was just a barter, second hand coincidence
What doesn't kill you just makes you harder, so I used my common sense
Keeping cold to keep my distance, ‘til you took my pride away
Now I will get by

I am not afraid, no, I am not afraid
And I will not go crazy here

I've got a little hope here in my pocket, I want to share a bit with you
So just be careful that you don't drop it, but don't worry if you do
'Cause I got voices down inside me, and I might just need some help
I will get by

What have I got to live for
If there's nothing beating in my chest
What have I got to live for
When this world starts turning, burning me up
When my heart is hurting, I'm learning the rough
When this world starts turning, it's burning me up
I'm alright
_________________________________________________________

Where the Angels Sleep
by Bebo Norman

I don't know why I always run
is it fear of the fall or fear of the touch
And I don't know where the angels sleep

And I don't know how to really love
I've never stood still long enough
And I don't know where the angels sleep

But I am alive and standing strong
I'm no farther forward, just farther along
I hold on to my pride and dig in deep
It's pulling me down, and I am no closer to release
And I don't know where the angels sleep

I don't know how to see you now
The friend from before is different somehow
And I don't know where the angels sleep

And I don't know when I'll love again
But I don't trust myself to just let you in
And I don't know where the angels sleep

It's taken ten thousand days
To get stuck in my ways
And it offers no grace
I cannot stand this place
With love in my face
I walk away slowly

I don't know where the angels sleep
No, I don't know where the angels sleep
_________________________________________________________

Healing Song
by Bebo Norman

I can tell by this crack of light
Oh girl this is gonna be, it's gonna be a beautiful day
And I can tell by this stretch of silver
Spreading all out across the curves of your face

And for the love, for the love of God
I've gathered up my pride, I've gathered up my bits and bone
And in a world that broke me down
I'm standing up, but not alone

'Cause this is a healing song, oh and I've got a heart that fails
But love is pushing me along, I'm lifting up above this veil
This is a healing song, oh and I don't know if you can tell
But love is pushing me along
I'm pressing up against the rail, pressing up against the rail

I can smell the summer in the air
And I swear I can almost see, I can almost see my soul
Son, I know that it don't seem fair
But I'm turning away from here, and oh Lord, I am coming home

I've got friends here that love me
I've got all this mercy beating in my blood
And I've got friends here that love me
And that's something good, that's something good

You and I, we've come so far
We've come so far, we cannot look back
I said you and I, we've come so far
We've come so far, we cannot look back

I said you and I (you and I, we've come so far)
We've come so far (you and I, we've come so far)
We've come so far (you and I, we've come so far)
We cannot look back (you and I cannot look back)

I said you and I (you and I, we've come so far)
We've come so far (you and I, we've come so far)
We've come so far (you and I, we've come so far)
No, we cannot look back (we cannot look back)

This might trigger... but it was written by someone i know (and hope to one day call friend) Jessica Weiser... she has just released her album " After Silence" visit www.jessicaweiser.com for more info but  "October"
Every year this day rolls around
Marked by grief and absence of sound
My lips form syllables but i can't push them out
I feel the fear bubbling up and i am overcome

I couldn't speak
Because you stole the words from me
My body is numb and my tongue stained with shame
Will I ever feel safe again

I am crying out
Do you hear me now
After Silence
I will find this voice agian

I watch the birds form patterns in the clear autumn sky
Somehow I wish I could join them and fly
Away from these memories into the October night
Releasing the anger you've etched in my mind

I couldn't breathe
Because you took that away from me
Your words suffocating and slowly breaking
The girl whose strength is crumbling

I am crying out
Do you hear me now
After Silence
I will find this voice again


I am her newest fan....

I love The Corrs too Caroline, and I actually prefer their version of Everybody Hurts.  Its beautiful.:)
Im listening to it now on my PC!

This is another song that I love
now, A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton.  It makes me cry when I listen to it though, it reminds me of how much I miss my Boyf when he's not here;

Making my way down town
Walking fast
Faces pass
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making a way
Through the crowd

And I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder
If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you... tonight

It's always times like these
When I think of you
And I wonder
If you ever think of me

Cause everything's so wrong
And I don't belong
Living in
Your precious memory

Cause I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder
If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by,oh
Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you... tonight

And I, I don't wanna let you know
I, I drown in your memory
I, I don't wanna let this go
I, I've fallen...

Making my way down town
Walking fast
Faces pass
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Making my way
Making a way
Through the crowd

And I still need you
And I still miss you
And now I wonder
If I could fall into the sky
Do you think time, would pass us by
Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you...

If I could fall into the sky
Do you think time would pass me by
Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you...
If I could just hold you... tonight

And another by Vanessa Carlton, Paradise.  I think these lyrics are very apt for the situation that most of us here are in;

once upon a year gone by
she saw herself give in
every time she closed her eyes
she saw what could have been
well nothing hurts and nothing bleeds
when covers tucked in tight
funny when the bottom drops
how she forgets to fight... to fight

and it's one more day in paradise
one more day in paradise

as darkness quickly steals the light
that shined within her eyes
she slowly swallows all her fear
and soothes her mind with lies
well all she wants and all she needs
are reasons to survive
a day in which the sun will take
her artificial light... her light

and it's one more day in paradise
one more day in paradise
it's one more day in paradise
one last chance to feel alright... alright

don't pretend to hold it in just let it out
don't pretend to hold it in just push it out
don't you try to hold it in just let it out and
don't you try to hold it in you hold it in

[chorus]

once upon a year gone by
she saw herself give in
every time she closed her eyes
she saw what could have been

I'm alive By: Heather Nova   ****T****

Your hands were covered in paint
The pillow smothered my cry
You were half charmer half snake
I lived in dreamtime


But I'm alive; I survived you
And the bitter taste, the years I wasted
All the hate is gone
'Cause I'm Alive


Some nights I'd sleep in the car
Just to escape you
You drove devotion too far
No-one could save you


But I'm alive; I survived you
And the bitter taste, the years I wasted
All the hate is gone
'Cause I'm Alive


I still have visions of you
I still have nights to get through
And when the trust isn't true
I have these visions of you, visions of you


But I'm alive; I survived you
And the bitter taste, the years I wasted
All the hate is gone cause I'm alive
Ride on and fade away
There's nothing more to say
Ride on and fade away
There's nothing more to say

how did I forget this one????

One Last Breath- Creed


Please come now I think I'm falling
I'm holding on to all I think is safe
It seems I found the road to nowhere
And I'm trying to escape
I yelled back when I heard thunder
But I'm down to one last breath
And with it let me say
Let me say

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
That maybe six feet
Ain't so far down

I'm looking down now that it's over
Reflecting on all of my mistakes
I thought I found the road to somewhere
Somewhere in His grace
I cried out 'Heaven save me'
But I'm down to one last breath
And with it let me say
Let me say

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
That maybe six feet
Ain't so far down

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
That maybe six feet
Ain't so far down

Sad eyes follow me
But I still believe there's something left for me
So please come stay with me
Cause I still believe there's something left for you and me
For you and me
For you and me

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
That maybe six feet
Ain't so far down

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
That maybe six feet
Ain't so far down

Please come now I think I'm falling
I'm holding on to all I think is safe

Asleep In The Back -- by Elbow


Were you crushed
Did I rush you
All my time is yours
My twisted heart is yours
The faithless shit is yours
The shameless fits of love that only smother you for moments
Until I fold them up and leave
All yours

Oh you had to ask didn’t you
Oh you had to know

Show your scars
Not to rush you
The hieroglyphic hints in all the toilet scrawl
Guilty little pins
And all the things I never talk about
Are spilling with the gin
Test how tough you are
All yours

Not to rush you

May *T* for religion.

This song "When I Am Weak" is an original song written by a few of the pastors from my church (Calvary Chapel Bangor) Its been a great source of strength and inspiration.

When I Am Weak

"Time keeps passing by, there ain't nothing I can do.  I'd really like to change somethings I've been going through.  I'd been feeling battled by the world I'm living in.  I've been feeling down and I feel like giving in.  Lord, I'm trying hard to keep my trust in You, cuz You've never let me down.  You've always pulled me through.  So Lord be patient with me one more time cuz I know the sun is shining on the other side.  

Lord sometimes it feels like You've hidden your face from me and I feel like I can't go on.  But you said that You'd never leave nor forsake me and its when I am weak that I am strong.

Lord I'm so prone to run on ahead and I forget everything that You've ever said.  That You care for the sparrow when it falls from the sky.  There ain't nothing in this world that ever escapes Your eyes.  And when my heart is aching and it seems that its the end, Your love is still the same and You are still my friend.  And though I cannot see you, still I will believe and though I cannot touch You, I know You're there for me.

Lord sometimes it feels like You've hidden your face from me and I feel like I can't go on.  But You said that You'd never leave nor forsake me and its when I am weak that I am strong.
