(~(~(~(~(Cira)~)~)~)~)

I know you are already quite aware of how this song affected me so we won't tread into that territory.  I just wanted to say thank you again, thank you for honoring me with such a powerful song.  It's a new anthem for me and I can't adquately thank you enough for sending it along at a time when I needed it the most!  This is another beautiful reminder of the wonders of "you".  Thanks babe!

Love you!
Lisa

P.S. ~ Stop goofing - I know you posted it twice because you knew I had to process it on both sides of my "donut-missing" brain AAANNNDDD because you forgot to put in my "ever-lovin'-eye buggin' blue faced smilies".  :o :o :o  You've redeemed yourself!  ;)

me again  :D this is one thats buy a group called South Sixty-Five, its called "A Random Act Of Senseless Kindness" and I think if everyone did what this song talks about the world would be such a better place for everyone...


“A Random Act of Senseless Kindness” - South Sixty-Five

I picked up the morning paper
The headlines were no surprise
A random act of senseless violence
Was committed again last night
It seems the whole world has gone crazy
And something needs to be done
So starting today, I'm gonna find a way
I'm gonna repay someone
With a random act of senseless kindness
Unexpected hand to help remind us
A little bit of love is the cure for hate
It's easy to give up but it's never too late
A single step in the right direction
Person to person making a connection
We can change the world that's become so violent
With a random act of senseless kindness
How I long to live the simple life
When neighbors were still friends
And the sidewalks leading downtown
Were safe to walk back then
Oh, the classrooms and the school yards
Were havens for our kids
Well, it's a long way back but we can get on track
Today's a good day to begin
With a random act of senseless kindness
Unexpected hand to help remind us
A little bit of love is the cure for hate
It's easy to give up but it's never too late
A single step in the right direction
Person to person making a connection
We can change the world that's become so violent
With a random act of senseless kindness
A random act of senseless kindness
Unexpected hand to help remind us
A little bit of love is the cure for hate
It's easy to give up but it's never too late
A single step in the right direction
Person to person making a connection
We can change the world that's become so violent
With a random act of senseless kindness

A random act of senseless kindness

<i>I really did laugh my ass off. It's true, I now have no ass.</i>

Hmmmm....Must be nice.  LMAO (though unfortunately not literally) You, my dear, are freaking hysterical sometimes.  And, really, Amy, I'm telling you, it leads to me.  :P

Brisbane band George.  Check their album Polyserena, you just have to hear this! It is soooo uplifting and touching. The band includes brother + sister switching lead vocals on different songs and Katie Noonan's classically trained voice is just amazing, so full of feminine power.
ok, nuff said, here are the lyrics!!!

'Special ones'

Isn't it funny how you never really screamed at my face,
but your anger so unspoken and unchannelled permeates my essence to the point where I
Don't want to see you hear you, be anywhere near you,
you probably think I'm threatened by you but your illusionary power doesn't threaten me
Actually I think it's kind of funny that you create an illusion that is a mirror,
I don't appreciate you and I know that that surprises you
I suppose you see that those who follow their heart always win,
those with integrity have won the match before it's begun

Chorus
So rather than being kicked around, I'm going to kick you to the curb
So rather than being pushed around, I'm going to push you away first
So rather than trying to protect you, I'm going to cover my basses first
So rather than trying to open my heart, I'm going to lock it with a key
So that only the special ones, so that only the special ones, can ever get through to me

Some can see beyond the barrier of threshold whereas others can't see beyond their sculptured mould,
you could offer me nothing, you could offer me nothing that I need
Do you think I'm asking too much?
A kind of respect and trust that shouldn't even be questioned,
how can I open my heart with dishonesty sitting next to me?
I've honoured your honour to the point of embarrassment,
but innocence in the hands of the guilt-free is kicked to, is kicked to the curb
I was ashamed of my innocence,
I was ashamed of my innocence but now with clarity I see that your bullshit is just not worthy of me

Chorus
I don't want to be angry....
This is not worthy of me and now with clarity I see that I can walk away, I can walk away

Breathe In Now
I see love and beauty all around, I also see the sadness that's embedded in your frown
I wonder why you choose not to talk to those around, I sense a fear of lifting heavy feet
higher than you want to, I just want to believe your truth...

you stand there but you do not cast a shadow, you walk away with every word you choose not to say
I suppose that moving on paints a new colour for each day, I don't like to see
dreams put on the shelf, to deal with on that one day, I just want to be happy for you

'cause I only have one second, this minute today
I can't press rewind and turn it back and call it now
and so this moment, I just have to sing out loud
and say I love I like and breathe in now
and say I love I live and breathe in now

I move on holding on to what I learn, it's time to move on from the notion
that the whole world's against me
break free of shackles that formed young, time free in now
and now I know, it's not all up to me, I can count on another
so move on lighter and be free ....

'cause I only have one second, this minute today
I can't press rewind and turn it back and call it now
and so this moment, I just have to sing out loud
and say I love I like and breathe in now
and say I love I live and breathe in now

I believe in for today I just want to know that you're okay
cause I believe in breathing just for today
I just want to know that you're okay....

'cause I only have one second, this minute today
I can't press rewind and turn it back and call it now
and so this moment, I just have to sing out loud
and say I love I like and breathe in now
and say I love I live and breathe in now
and say I love I live and breathe in now

I've always loved "Name" by the Goo Goo Dolls.  But, when I started paying attention to the words, I interpreted it my own way that went along with the experiences I've had in my life.  

NAME

And even though the moment passed me by
I still can't turn away
Cuz all the dreams you never thought you'd lose
Got tossed along the way
And letters that you never meant to send
Got lost or thrown away

And now we're grown up orphans
And never knew their names
We don't belong to no one
That's a shame
But you could hide beside me
Maybe for a while
And I won't tell no one your name
And I won't tell 'em your name

And scars are souvenirs you never lose
The past is never far
Did you lose yourself somewhere out there?
Did you get to be a star?
And don't it make you sad to know that life
Is more than who we are

We grew up way too fast
And now there's nothing to believe
And reruns all become our history
A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio
And I won't tell no one your name
And I won't tell 'em your name
I won't tell em' your name
Oooh, oooh, oooh
I won't tell em' your name
Ow!

I think about you all the time
But I don't need the same
It's lonely where you are
Come back down
And I won't tell 'em your name

Bjork's Hyperballad I don't think has been mentioned yet. Anything by Bjork is really amazing, and of course ANYTHING by TORI! She is the ultimate goddess of music and emotions and healing!

Jewel
Pieces of You
Angel Standing By

All through the night I'll be standing over you
All through the night I'll be watching over you
And through the bad dreams I'll be right there, baby
Holding your hand, telling you everything's gonna be all right
And when you cry I'll be right there
Telling you you were never anything less than beautiful
So don't you worry, I'm your Angel standing by

Mary

(((hugs))) A very great idea to put this up, sometimes i wonder what kind of things ppl listen to that helps them with any of their emotions. Normally i find one or 2 songs with every emotion i may be feeling at the moment and listen to it over and over again alot of my time. This song i am about to mention i used to listen to ALOT,still do but i have also found other helpful songs so heres one:


Wash Away Those Years by CREED

She came calling
One early morning
She showed her crown of thorns
She whispered softly
To tell a story
About how she had been wronged
As she lay lifeless
He stole her innocence
And 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 tragedy strikes at home
I know this decadence Is shared by millions
Remember you're not alone
For we have crossed many oceans
And we labor in between
In life there are many quotients
And I hope I find the mean


Heres another:

MY OWN PRISON by CREED

A court is in session, a verdict is in
No appeal on the docket today
Just my own sin
The walls are cold and pale
The cage made of steel
Screams fill the room
Alone I drop and kneel
Silence now the sound
My breath the only motion around
Demons cluttering around
My face showing no emotion
Shackled by my sentence
Expecting no return
Here there is no penance
My skin begins to burn
So I held my head up high,
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
We're all held captive
Our from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one
I hear a thunder in the distance
See a vision of the cross
I feel the pain that was given
On that sad day of loss
A lion roars in the distance
Only he holds the key
A light to free me from my burden
And grant me life eternally
Should have been dead
On a Sunday morning
Banging my head
No time for mourning
Ain't got no time
So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
We're all held captive
Our from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one
I cry out to God
Seeking only his decision
Gabriel stands and confirms
I've created my own prison


Those are a couple for now but i am sure i can find tons more.:)

Donna =)

heres some of the songs that have inspired me:

Nothing at all - various singers/Francis Black

its amazing
how you can speak right to my heart
without saying a word
try as i might i can never explain
what i hear when you dont say a thing at all

chorus:
The smile on your face lets me know taht you need me
theres a truth in your eyes saying that you'll never leave me
the touch of your hand says
you'll catch me whenever i fall
you say it better when you
say nothing at all
All alone I can hear ppl talking about
But when you hold me near you
you drown out the crowd
Old Mr Webster could never define
what's being said between your heart and mine

chorus
then
the smile on your face etc

Brian Kennedy- won't you take me home

I've walked along
this stormy life
too scared to feel
the love i might

While I won't deny that i am afraid
I can't say the words
If only there was someone who
could make sense of it all........

It won't be long
Before the light
Another day
A sleepless night

Will i ever learn to live alone?
Am I strong enough?
If only there was some way
in this world to let you know

One night
Give me just one night
For all I own
I'm so alone
Oh won't you take me home

You make me weak
You make me kind
I never knew a love so blind

Well I don't believe in many things
But I'm certain now
If only there was somewhere in
this world where we could go for

One night
Give me just one night
For all I own
I'm so alone
Won't you take me home?

Oh save me now
There's no bitterness
Darling don't you let me down
Oh Hold me now
Show me some tenderness
I'm so lost without you around

Give me just one night
For all that I own
I'm so alone
I never let you go
Oh won't you take me home

Love Life and Happiness -Brian Kennedy

Will you walk with me
Through this world
And never let me down, oh listen
now
Can you hear a sound
Look what we have found
Another day ends peacefully

Oh
Now tell me
Is this the way its gonna stay

Oh
Don't let go again
it's your life
Love
your happiness

When you sleep tonight
Will you dream
About a brighter life, oh it's
gonna last
And we hope for more
But my heart is so unsure
Another day is

Over
so tell me
Is this the way it's meant to be

Oh dont let go again (chorus)

Don't go
I'm remembering
The time of joy and of love

Oh dont let go again (etc)

And we hope for more
My heart is so unsure
Will you walk with me
And never let me down

See Line Woman- Kennedy very tribal beat

Yeah yeah
Yeah Yeah
alright ye

She-line woman
She drink coffee
she drink tea
and then go home
See-line woman

See-line woman
Dressed in green
Wears silk stockings
With golden seams
See-line woman

See-line woman
Dressed in red
Make a man lose his head
She-line woman

She-line woman black dress on
For a thousand dollars
She wail and she moan
She-line woman

Wiggle wiggle
Purr like a cat
Wink at a man
And he wink back
Not shy
See-line woman

Empty his pockets
And wreck his day
Make him love her
And she'll fly away

She got a black dress on
For a thousand dollars
She'll wail and moan........

Thats all for now folks
cat

Words and music by Michelle Branch

Leap Of Faith

One less call to answer,
feeling full of despair,
don't think I can get through it,
just one last prayer.

*And it's a leap of faith,
when you believe there's someone out there,
it's a leap of faith when you believe that someone cares, oh,
and when I call out to you,
will you be right there,
right there.

Searching for the answer,
nobody seems to care,
Oh how I wish that you were here,
beside me,
to wipe away my tears.

*And it's a leap of faith,
when you believe there's someone out there,
it's a leap of faith when you believe that someone cares, oh,
and when I call out to you,
will you be right there,
right there.

Waiting for the answer,
remembering times we would share,
somehow I feel you here beside me,
even though your not there.

*And it's a leap of faith,
when you believe there's someone out there,
it's a leap of faith when you believe that someone cares, oh,
and when I call out to you,
will you be right there-

Bridge:
Right there---
And I'll be waiting by the window for your smile to come through,
and I'll be waiting in the darkness when I call out to you,
and I'll remember when you told me,
I could trust in you-

*And it's a leap of faith,
when you believe there's someone out there,
it's a leap of faith when you believe that someone cares, oh,
and when I call out to you,
will you be right there-
It's a leap of faith,
and I believe that you are out there,
it's a leap of faith and I believe you truly care, oh,
and when I call out to you,
I know you'll be right there,
right there,
and it's a leap of faith.

I have always loved this song and it makes me think of all of you.

Just the Way You Are by Billy Joel

Don't go changing, to try and please me
                   You never let me down before
                   Don't imagine you're too familiar
                   And I don't see you anymore

                   I wouldn't leave you in times of trouble
                   We never could have come this far
                   I took the good times, I'll take the bad times
                   I'll take you just the way you are

                   Don't go trying some new fashion
                   Don't change the color of your hair
                   You always have my unspoken passion
                   Although I might not seem to care

                   I don't want clever conversation
                   I never want to work that hard
                   I just want someone that I can talk to
                   I want you just the way you are.

                   I need to know that you will always be
                   The same old someone that I knew
                   What will it take till you believe in me
                   The way that I believe in you.

                   I said I love you and that's forever
                   And this I promise from the heart
                   I could not love you any better
                   I love you just the way you are.

This is a melancholic song I heard played by Jeff Buckley though the original version is French by Edith Piaf. I think It reaches to the kid inside. He plays it with an arpeggio that sounds like the sound of a merry go round music, it's just beautiful.

Je n’en Connais Pas La Fin – Edith Piaf

I used to know a little square
So long ago when I was small
All summer long it had a fair
And at the close of everyday

I could be found dancing around
A merry-go-round that used to play
Oh mon amour , à toi toujours
Dans tes grands yeux , rien que nous deux

All summer long my little fair
Made everyday like a holiday
Night after night it used to play
And people came there from so far away
And everyone sang that little tune
All around town you heard it played

Even Pepi from Napoli
He sang to Marie this serenade
Oh mon amour , à toi toujours
Dans tes grands yeux , rien que nous deux

I can’t forget my little square
Even though I’m so far away
I can’t forget my little fair
Maybe it’s still there , still there today

I sometimes hear that little tune
Playing in a dream of long ago
And in my brain runs the refrain
That old French refrain I used to know

Oh mon amour , à toi toujours
Dans tes grands yeux , rien que nous deux

Boy on a string by Jars of Clay

The marionetter has your number
Pulling your arms and legs till you can't stand on your own
Dragging your conscience on the stage
and your heart gets rearranged
and you cannot tell your mentor from your Maker
Look at the crowds bleeding with laughter
Over the way you entertain at beckon call
They don't see behind the lights, or the painted backgrounds
They just like to see you fall

But you don't really mind
Cause you're just wasting time
You can't feel anything
You're a boy on a string

I feel a sadness like Gapetto
watching the life that he created run away
Seeing the puppeteer's intrusion,
and holding the remains of puppets that had rotted away
One day the curtain will not open
And all of the crowds will go away
Someday those strings will choke you, but until that day

But you don't really mind
Cause you're just wasting time
You can't feel anything
You're a boy on a string

Don't Let Me Get Me
by Pink

I never win 1st place
I don't support the team
I can't take direction
And my socks are never clean
Teachers dated me
My parents hated me
I was always in a fight
'Cause I can't do nothing right
Everyday I fight a war against the mirror
Can't take the person staring back at me
I'm a hazard to myself
Don't let me get me
I'm my own worst enemy
It's bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
Don't want to be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else
LA told me
You'll be a pop star
All you have to change
Is everything you are
Tired of being compared
To #### Britney Spears
She's so pretty
That just ain't me
So doctor doctor won't you please prescribe me something
A day in the life of someone else
