Might trigger, might not.

BIF NAKED ~ Tell On You.

It seemed like days had passed...
are you finished?
I could no longer
move my arms.

The only thing left in the room
was the silence:
Can you still hear the breaking glass
when it hit my face?

Even the mice were laughing
at the smell of pain,
here we go again
to the depths of no return:

Please remember: I know who you are.
Someday, I'll have the strength to tell.

As the man looked over me
with his inquiries,
I swore you never did it.
I licked the sweat from my palms.

Alone am I with your face burned in my mind.
You are the one (the fucker) who deserves to die.
It should have never been me.

Please remember: I know who you are.
Someday, I'll have the strength to tell.

I pray for you as a little boy.
What must have happened to make you so cruel?
(and I pray that you rot in hell)

Please remember: I know who you are.
Someday, I'll have the strength to tell
: on you

My very first healing song.

Madonna - Live To Tell Lyrics

I have a tale to tell
Sometimes it gets so hard to hide it well
I was not ready for the fall
Too blind to see the writing on the wall

Chorus:

A man can tell a thousand lies
I've learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned, 'till then
It will burn inside of me

I know where beauty lives
I've seen it once, I know the warmth she gives
The light that you could never see
It shines inside, you can't take that from me

(chorus)

2nd Chorus:

The truth is never far behind
You kept it hidden well
If I live to tell
The secret I knew then
Will I ever have the chance again

If I ran away, I'd never have the strength
To go very far
How would they hear the beating of my heart
Will it grow cold
The secret that I hide, will I grow old
How will they hear
When will they learn
How will they know

(chorus)
(2nd chorus)

This might seem like a weird one, probably... but it always helps me when I feel down... probably because it talks about a lot of the things I've experienced and been through and also has some happiness with the sadness.

Alanis Morissette - Thank You

How bout getting off of these antibiotics
How bout stopping eating when I'm full up
How bout them transparent dangling carrots
How bout that ever elusive kudo

Thank you India
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

How bout me not blaming you for everything
How bout me enjoying the moment for once
How bout how good it feels to finally forgive you
How bout grieving it all one at a time

Thank you India
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

The moment I let go of it was
The moment I got more than I could handle
The moment I jumped off of it was
The moment I touched down

How bout no longer being masochistic
How bout remembering your divinity
How bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out
How bout not equating death with stopping

Thank you India
Thank you providence
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you nothingness
Thank you clarity
Thank you thank you silence

Artist: Kate Bush Lyrics
Song: This Woman's Work Lyrics
Pray God you can cope.
I stand outside this woman's work,
This woman's world.
Ooh, it's hard on the man,
Now his part is over.
Now starts the craft of the father.

I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking

Of all the things I should've said,
That I never said.
All the things we should've done,
That we never did.
All the things I should've given,
But I didn't.

Oh, darling, make it go,
Make it go away.

Give me these moments back.
Give them back to me.
Give me that little kiss.
Give me your hand.

(I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.)

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking

Of all the things we should've said,
That were never said.
All the things we should've done,
That we never did.
All the things that you needed from me.
All the things that you wanted for me.
All the things that I should've given,
But I didn't.

Oh, darling, make it go away.
Just make it go away now.

+44 Lyrics (former Blink182 members)

BABY COME ON

she's a pretty girl
she's always falling down
and i think i just fell in love with her
but she won't ever remember

and i can always find her
at the bottom of a plastic cup
drowning in drunk sincerity
a sad and lonely girl

quit crying your eyes out
quit crying your eyes out and baby come on
isn't there something familiar about me?
the past is only the future with the lights on
quit crying your eyes out baby

and she said, "i think we're running out of alcohol
tonight i hate this f***ing town
and all my best friends will be the death of me
but they wont ever remember

so please take me far away
before i melt into the ground
and all my words are used against me"
you sad and lonely girl

quit crying your eyes out
quit crying your eyes out and baby come on
isn't there something familiar about me?
the past is only the future with the lights on
quit crying your eyes out baby

I listen to a lot of music so I have a lot of songs that help me through. My top four are the following sorry if any of these have already been posted.

Artist: Bette Midler
Song: The Rose
Album: Experience the Divine

The rose

Some say love, it is a river, that drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor, that leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower, and you, its only seed

Its the heart afraid of breaking, that never learns to dance
Its the dream afraid of waking, that never takes the chance
Its the one who wont be taken, the one who cant seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong
Just remember that in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed, that with the suns love in the spring becomes the rose.


Artist: Ben E. King
Song: Stand by Me
Album: Stand by Me Soundtrack

When the night has come,
and the land is dark.
And the moon,
is the only light we'll see.

No, I won't, be afraid
Oh I-iiiiii won't
Be afraid
Just as long as you
stand, stand by me.

So darlin', darlin'
stand...by me
Ohhhh stand by me (x2)
Stand by me,
Stand by me.

If the sky -
that we look upon,
Should tumble and fall.
or the mountain,
Should crumble to the sea.

I won't cry, I won't cry.
No I-iiii won't shed a tear.
Just as long
As you stand
Stand by me.

And darlin', darlin'
Stand, by me.
Ohhhh stand by me.
Woahh stand now,
Stand by me.
Stand by me.
(Instrumental Portion)

Darlin', darlin'
Stand, by me.
Ohhh stand, by me.
Stand by me.
Stand by me.
Whenever you're in trouble,
Wont you stand, stand by me.
Stand by me.
Ohhh stand by me


Artist: Kansas
Song: Carry on Wayward Son
Album: LEFTOVERTURE

Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
I was soaring ever higher
But I flew too high
Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think I still was a madman
I hear the voices when I'm dreaming
I can hear them say

Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Masquerading as a man with a reason
My charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man
It surely means that I don't know
On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean
I set a course for winds of fortune
But I hear the voices say

Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Artist: Whie Lion
Song: When the Children Cry
Album: White Lion (I think)

Little child
Dry your crying eyes
How can I explain
The fear you feel inside
cause you were born
Into this evil world
Where man is killing man
and no one knows just why
What have we become
Just look what we have done
All that we destroyed
You must build again

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
cause when the children sings
The new world begins

Little child
You must show the way
To a better day
For all the young
cause you were born
For the world to see
That we all can live
With love and peace
No more presidents
And all the wars will end
One united world under god

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
cause when the children sings
The new world begins
(Instrutmental)

What have we become
Just look what we have done
All that we destroyed
You must build again
No more presidents
And all the wars will end
One united world under god

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
cause when the children fight
Then we know it aint right
When the children break
Let them know were awake
cause when the children sings
The new world begins

Mariah Carey "can't take that away"
They can say anything they want to say
Try to bring me down
But I will not allow
Anyone to succeed
Hanging clouds over me
And they can try hard to make me feel
That I don't matter at all
But I refuse to falter
In what I believe
Or lose faith in my dreams

CHORUS:
'Cause there's a light in me
That shines brightly
They can try
But they can't take that away from me
From me

oh no, no ,no, no, no, no, no, no, no
They.......Oh
They, they can do anything they want to you
lf you let them in
But they won't ever win
If you cling to your pride
And just push them aside
See
I, i have learned there's an inner peace I own
Something in my soul
That they cannot possess
So I won't be afraid
And darkness will fade

'Cause there's a light in me
That shines brightly
They can try
But they can't take that away from me

No oh...
They can't take this
Precious love
I'll always have inside me
Certainly the Lord will guide me
Where I need to go

oh....

They can say anything they want to say
Try to bring me down
But I won't face the ground
I will rise steadily
Sailing out of their reach

Oh Lord
They do try hard to make me feel
That I don't matter at all
But I refuse to falter
In what I believe
Or lose faith in my dreams

'Cause there's a light in me that shines brightly
hey... hey...
They can try
But they can't take that away from me

"I'll be there" by Mariah (originally done by the Jacksons)

You and I must make a pact
We must bring salvation back
Where there is love
I'll be there
I'll reach out my hand to you
I'll have faith in all you do
Just call my name
And I'll be there

I'll be there to comfort you
Build my world of dreams around you
I'm so glad I found you yeah
I'll be there with a love so strong
I'll be your strength
You know I'll keep holding on

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, well it's all I'm after
Just call my name and
I'll be there
I'll be there to protect you
With an unselfish love that respects you
Just call my name
And I'll be there

Chorus:
I'll be there to comfort you
Build my world of dreams around you
You know I'm so glad that I found you
I'll be there with a love so strong
I'll be your strength
You know I'll keep holding on

See, if you should ever find someone new
I know she better be good to you
'Cause if she doesn't then
I'll be there

Don't you know baby yeah yeah
I'll be there
I'll be there
Just call my name and
I'll be there

I'll be there, baby
You know I'll be there
Just call my name and
I'll be there
Just look over your shoulder
Just call my name and
I'll be there

"never to far"
You're with me
Til the bitter end
What we had transcends
This experience
Too painful to
Talk about
So I'll hold it in
Til my heart can mend
And be brave enough to love again

A place in time
Still belongs to us
Stays preserved in my mind
In the memories there is solace

Never too far away
I won't let time erase
One bit of yesterday
Cause I have learned that
Nobody can take your place
Though we can never be
I'll keep you close to me
When I remember

Glittering lights
Incandescent eyes
Still preserved
In my mind
In the memories I'll find solace

Never too far away
I won't let time erase
One bit of yesterday
And I have learned that
Nobody can take your place
Though we can never be
I'll keep you close to me
And I'll remember

A place in time
Still belongs to us
Stays preserved in my mind
In the memories there is solace

Never too far away
I won't let time erase
One bit of yesterday
Cause I have learned that
Nobody can take your place
And though we can never be
I'll think of you and me
Always remember

Love

You're never too far

Sober-Kelly Clarkson

And I don't know
This could break my heart or save me
Nothing's real
Until you let go completely
So here I go with all my thoughts I've been saving
So here I go with all my fears weighing on me

Three months and I'm still sober
Picked all my weeds but kept the flowers

And I don't know
I could crash and burn but maybe
At the end of this road I might catch a glimpse of me
So i won't worry 'bout my timing
I wanna get it right
No comparing, second guessing
No not this time

Three months and I'm still breathing
Been a long road since those hands I left my tears in
But I know it's never really over, no

Wake up

Three months and I'm still standing here
Three months and I'm getting better yeah
Three months yeah, three months

Three months and I'm still breathing
Three months and I still remember it
Three months and I wake up

Three months and I'm still sober
Picked all my weeds but kept the flowers

irvine-kelly clarkson

Are you there?
Are you watching me?
As I lie here on this floor
They say you feel what I do
They say you're here every moment
Will you stay?
Stay 'till the darkness leaves
Stay here with me
I know you're busy, I know I'm just one
But you might be the only one who sees me
The only one to save me

Why is it so hard?
Why can't you just take me?
I don't have much to go
Before I fade completely

Can you feel how cold I am?
Do you cry as I do?
Are you lonely up there all by yourself?
Like I have felt all my life
The only one to save mine

How are you so strong?
What's it like to feel so free?
Your heart is really something
Your love, a complete mystery to me

Are you there watching me?
As I lie here on this floor
Do you cry, do you cry with me?
Cry with me tonight

Are you there?
Are you watching me?

Gnarls Barkley "The Odd Couple"

"Going On"

Iíve seen it with my own eyes
How weíre gettiní otherwise
Without the luxury of leaviní
The touch and feeling of free is
Untangible technically
Something youíve got to believe in
Connect the cause and effect
One foot in front of the next
This is the start of a journey.
And my mind is already gone
And though there are other unknowns
Somehow this doesnít concern me.

And you can stand right there if you want
But Iím going on
And Iím prepared to go it alone
Iím going on
To a place in the sun thatís nice and warm
Iím going on

And Iím sure theyíll have a place for you too oohoohoo

Anyone that needs what they want, and doesnít want what they need
I want nothing to do with
And to do what I want
And to do what I please
Is first of my to-do list
But every once in a while I think about her smile
One of the few things I do miss
But baby IĎve to go
Baby Iíve got to know
Baby Iíve got to prove it

And Iíll see you when you get there
But Iím going on
And Iím prepared to go it alone
Iím going on
May my love lift you up to the place you belong
Iím going on
And I promise Iíll be waiting for you oohoohoo

"A Little Better"

Now I can sing you the storyline
And if you like my story fine
But ain't none of the glory mine
See my life was a lonely one
And I was still momma's only son
With no idea what I'm gon' become
And I didn't have long to know
That you don't have to be grown to go
I could have died so long befo'
Then I finally saw the sign
And I made it on down the line
One step at a time

I feel better!
I can smile at it now, I feel better
Ohhhh, better!
And even a little is still better
Oh, have mercy on me

Ohhh it's probably plain to see
That I got a whole lot of pain in me
And it will always remain in me
So cold, it's a cryin shame
Yet here I am, tryin again
Cause I refuse to die in vain
The circumstances put soul in me
And there ain't no holdin me
I've got a heart made of gold in me
Hah, can you believe this is where I've been?
And when adversity comes again
I'll deal with it then

I feel better!
I can laugh at it now, I feel better, heh heh
Ohhhh, better!
And even a little is still better
Oh, have mercy on me-heeeeeeee

Ah-ahhh-hahhh-ah yeahhh
Mmmmmmmmmm, ohhhhhhh-oh-ohhhh!

I said everything's fine, you can take your time
What would be on your mind, if you knew you was dyin
I would wanna just feel this ah-one more time
I said everything's fine, take yo' time
What would be on your mind, if you knew you was dyin
I would wanna just feel this ah-one more time
I wanna thank you morning sun
I wanna thank you lowly dirt
Now I know I'm not the only one
I, I wanna thank you friendly ghost
When all the calls were close
It seems like you cared the most
I, I wanna thank you Mom and Dad
For hurtin me so bad
But you're the best I ever had
I, I wanna thank you...

Pocketful of Sunshine
Natasha Bedingfield



I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it's all mine.
Oh.

Do what you want, but you're never gonna break me.
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me.
No.

Take me away: A secret place.
A sweet escape: Take me away.

Take me away to better days.
Take me away: A higher place.

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it's all mine.
Oh.

Do what you want, but you're never gonna break me.
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me.
No.

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it's all mine.
Oh.

Wish that you could, but you ain't gonna own me.
Do anything you can to control me.
Oh, no.

Take me away: A secret place.
A sweet escape: Take me away.

Take me away to better days.
Take me away: A higher place.

There's a place that I go,
But nobody knows.
Where the rivers flow,
And I call it home.

And there's no more lies.
In the darkness, there's light.
And nobody cries.
There's only butterflies.

Take me away: A secret place.
A sweet escape: Take me away.

Take me away to better days.
Take me away: A higher place.

Take me away: A secret place.
A sweet escape: Take me away.

Take me away to better days.
Take me away: A higher place.

Take me away: A secret place.
To better days take me away.

Take me away to better days.
Take me away: A higher place.

The sun is on my side.
Take me for a ride.
I smile up to the sky.
I know I'll be all right.

The sun is on my side.
Take me for a ride.
I smile up to the sky.
I know I'll be all right.

I found this song the other day and alot of people dont seem to know about him myself included.
This song has religous references, but its so true at least i think so.

its called the eleventh commandment
by collin raye

She hears his heavy breathing in the dark
His footsteps coming closer down the hall
She's so ashamed, she's daddy's secret love
She wants to cry, she wants to die, but he can't get enough
The bruises on his face will go away
Mom keeps him home from school till they fade
She's sorry he was born and tells him so
He takes it in, he hangs his chin, he ducks another blow

Did God overlook it
What ought have been written
The eleventh commandment
Honor thy children

He cries for hours, cries and never stops
He shakes so hard his little cradle rocks
He'll never have the chance to be brand new
He'll never walk, he'll never talk, he's addicted too

Did God overlook it
What ought have been written
The eleventh commandment
Honor thy children

Thou shalt not kill
Thou shalt not steal
Thou shalt not take the Lord's name in vain
Thou shalt not cause thy children pain

God does not overlook it
What ought have been written
The eleventh commandment
Honor thy children
Honor thy children

i found sarah mclaughins angels soothing when in a dark mood


Spend all your time waiting
for that second chance,
for a break that would make it okay.

There's always some reason
to feel not good enough,
and it's hard, at the end of the day.

I need some distraction,
Oh, beautiful release.
Memories seep from my veins.
Let me be empty,
Oh, and weightless,
And maybe I'll find some peace tonight.

CHORUS:
In the arms of the angel,
fly away from here,
from this dark, cold hotel room,
and the endlessness that you feel.

You are pulled from the wreckage,
Of your silent reverie.
You're in the arms of the angel,
may you find some comfort here.

So tired of the straight line,
and everywhere you turn,
there's vultures and thieves at your back.

The storm keeps on twisting.
Keep on building the lies
that you make up for all that you lack.

Don't make no difference,
escape one last time.
It's easier to believe in this sweet madness,
Oh, this glorious sadness,
that brings me to my knees.

REPEAT CHORUS

You're in the arms of the angel,
may you find some comfort here.
