Extremely extremely ****T**** Please please please be careful. CSA....

CONCRETE ANGEL

She walks to school with the lunch
She packed
Nobody knows what she's
Holdin' back
Wearin' the same dress
She wore yesterday
She hides the bruises with linen
And lace.

The teacher wonders but she
Doesn't ask
It's hard to see the pain
Behind the mask
Bearing the burden
Of a secret storm
Sometimes she wishes she was
Never born.

Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as stone
In a world that she can't rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where
She's loved
Concrete Angel.

Somebody cries in the middle
Of the night
The neighbors hear, but they turn
Out the lights
A fragile soul caught in the hands
Of fate
When morning comes
It'll be too late.

Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as stone
In a world that she can't rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where
She's loved
Concrete Angel.

A statue stands in a shaded place
An Angel girl with an upturned face
A name is written on a polished rock
A broken heart that the world forgot.

Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as stone
In a world that she can't rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where
She's loved
Concrete Angel.

Written by Stephanie Bentley & Rob Crosby
Performed by Martina McBride

Bit of a weird sarcastic message, but totally cool song.

After all you put me through
You'd think I'd despise you
But in the end
I wanna thank you...
Cos you made me that much stronger

Well I, thought I knew you
Thinking, that you were true
I guess I, I couldn't trust
Called your bluff, time is up
'Cause I've had enough
You were, there by my side
Always, down for the ride
But your, joy ride just came down in flames
'Cause your greed sold me out in shame,

After all of the stealing and cheating
You probably think that I hold resentment for you
But, uh uh, oh no, you're wrong
'Cause if it wasn't for all that you tried to do
I wouldn't know just how capable I am to pull through
So I wanna say thank you!

'Cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter

Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

Never, saw it coming
All of, your backstabbing
Just so, you could cash in
On a good thing before I realized your game
I heard, you're going around
Playing, the victim now
But don't, even begin
Feeling I'm the one to blame
'Cause you dug your own grave!

After all of the fights and the lies
Yes you wanted to haunt me but that won't work anymore
Uh, no more, oh no, it's over
'Cause if it wasn't for all of your torture
I wouldn't know how
To be this way now
And never back down
So I wanna say thank you!

Repeat chorus

How could this man I thought I knew
Turn out to be unjust so cruel
Could only see the good in you
Pretending not to see the truth
You tried to hide your lies
Disguise yourself through living in denial
But in the end you'll see...
YOU WON'T STOP ME!

I am a fighter!
I ain't gonna stop!
There is no turning back
I've had enough!

(((((Amy))))))Thanks for saving me some typing. †"Never Again" was one I was going to share. †It's one of my favorites. †

Here's the other one I wanted to share w/ all of you. †It's an untitled hidden track from the new 3 Doors Down CD, "Away From the Sun". †If you're interested in listening, you may find it online titled as "This Time". †Also, I'll freely send it to anyone who wishes to provide me with an email address. †I simply love sharing this song with people! :) †So here it is. †(*(*(Lisa)*)*) †Darling, this is for you.

Unsure of yourself,
You stand all righted and now,
We sure will lead you there
Last time you fell, and you hit hard
Your wounds have healed by now,
But you still see your scars, yeah

But it's not the way it used to be right now
You've come so far to just let this go, my friend
Don't go out the same way you did the last time
You'll break when you fall,
Don't make the same mistakes you did all over
You've got to believe in yourself this time.

Live on, live it up today
This life's your cup
So drink it up I say, yeah
Say it's mine so give it all up to me now
And walk that line
Don't let this go my friend.

Don't go out the same way you did the last time
You'll break when you fall
Don't make the same mistakes you did all over
You've got to believe in yourself, this time
This time

Life's your cup, life's your cup
Drink it up
Life's your cup, life's your cup

The same way you did the last time
You'll break when you fall
Don't make the same mistakes you did all over
You've got to believe in yourself, this time

The same way you did the last time
You'll break when you fall
Don't make the same mistakes you did all over
You've got to believe in yourself this time.

**Just a side note, guys, for those of you who may listen to this song. †I'm not sure those lyrics in the first couple of lines are correct, but they're what I got off of a webiste I found, & they are close, at least. †:) †Feel free to update or correct them!

Somewhere I belong by Linkin Park

(When this began)
I had nothing to say
And I get lost in the nothingness inside of me
(I was confused)
And I live it all out to find
That Iím not the only person with these things in mind
(Inside of me)
But all that they can see the words revealed
Is the only real thing that Iíve got left to feel
(Nothing to lose)
Just stuck, hollow and alone
And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own

[Chorus]
I wanna heal, I wanna feel what I thought was never real
I wanna let go of the pain Iíve felt so long
(Erase all the pain till itís gone)
I wanna heal, I wanna feel like Iím close to something real
I wanna find something Iíve wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

And Iíve got nothing to say
I canít believe I didnít fall right down on my face
(I was confused)
Looking everywhere only to find
That itís not the way I had imagined it all in my mind
(So what am I)
What do I have but negativity
íCause I canít trust to find the way, everyone is looking at me
(Nothing to lose)
Nothing to gain, hollow and alone
And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own

[Repeat Chorus]

I will never know myself until I do this on my own
And I will never feel anything else until my wounds are healed
I will never be anything till I break away from me
I will break away and find myself today

[Repeat Chorus]

I wanna heal, I wanna feel like Iím somewhere I belong
I wanna heal, I wanna feel like Iím somewhere I belong
Somewhere I belong

This...will probably trigger. So be careful. (((((((all)))))))

Pink - "18 wheeler"
Can't keep me down
Can't keep me down, down
Can't keep me down
I said you can't keep me down
You know you can't keep me down
I said you can't keep me down

Hey, hey, man! What's your problem?
I see you tryin' to hurt me bad
Don't know what you're up against
Maybe you should reconsider
Come up with another plan
Cuz you know I'm not that kinda girl
That'll lay there and let you come first

You can push me out the window
I'll just get back up
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler truck
And I won't give a fuck
You can hang me like a slave
I'll go underground
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler but
You can't keep me down, down, down, down

Can't keep me down, down
Can't keep me down, down, down
Can't keep me down, down

Hey, hey, girl! Are you ready for today?
You got your shield and sword?
Cuz its time to play the games
You are beautiful
Even though your not for sure
Don't let him pull you by the scar
You're gonna get your feelings hurt

You can push me out the window
I'll just get back up
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler truck
And I won't give a fuck
You can hang me like a slave
I'll go underground
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler but
You can't keep me down, down, down, down

You can push me out the window
I'll just get back up
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler truck
And I won't give a fuck
You can hang me like a slave
I'll go underground
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler but
You can't keep me down, down, down, down  

Everywhere that I go
There's someone waitin' to chain me
Everything that I say
There's someone tryin' to short-change me
I am only this way
Because of what you have made me
And I'm not gonna break!

You can push me out the window
I'll just get back up
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler truck
And I won't give a fuck
You can hang me like a slave
I'll go underground
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler but
You can't keep me down, down, down, down

"Away From The Sun" by 3 Doors Down

It's down to this
I've got to make this life make sense
Can anyone tell what I've done
I miss the life
I miss the colors of the world
Can anyone tell where I am

Cause now again I've found myself so far down
Away from the sun that shines into the darkest place
I'm so far down away from the sun again
Away from the sun again

I'm over this
I'm tired of livin' in the dark
Can anyone see me down here
The feeling's gone
There's nothing left to lift me up
Back into the world I know

And now again I've found myself so far down
Away from the sun that shines into the darkest place
I'm so far down away from the sun
That shines to light the way for me to find my way back into the arms
That care about the ones like me
I'm so far down away from the sun again

It's down to this
I've got to make this life make sense
And now I can't tell what I've done

And now again I've found myself so far down
Away from the sun that shines to light the way for me
And now again I've found myself so far down
Away from the sun that shines into the darkest place

I'm so far down away from the sun
That shines to light the way for me to find my way back into the arms
That care about the ones like me
I'm so far down away from the sun again

I LOVE staind also, but since a lot of those songs are allready up...so I tried to find some variety.  Supertones anyone??  very diff. from Staind. and on scale of 1-10, I give them an overall 6.  BUT the song Jury Duty is pretty neatly done.


JURY DUTY
The O.C. Supertones

5a.m. on Tuesday, why am i up so early?
drive out to Santa Anna, cuz I've got jury duty
no breakfast, short temper, and I cut my head shaving.
10 miles out I hit traffic
some days just aren't worth saving
And though I haven't had the best of days
I want to stop and thank you, anyway
At the court house, I waited, and waited and I waited
at lunch time, my car stalled out
I couldn't get it started
Read a book by C.S. Lewis, I finished the last page
Slept on my desk for three hours
just like my highschool days
No I haven't had the best of days
but I want to stop and thank you anyway
every single moment whether sleeping or awake
is your creation and what you made is good
I don't always thank you for the rough days
and hard times in my life, even though I should
Got home and decided I'd be in a bad mood
my shy and quiet wife said she didn't like my attitude
got a call from my mother, forgot my sisters birthday
I'm a lousy older brother, safe to say I've had a bad day
And though i haven't had the best of days
but I want to stop and thank you anyway.

These are both LifeHouse songs, at times they are so true, they sometimes will trigger tho.


Catch your breath hit the wall
scream out loud as you start to crawl back in
Your cage the only place where they will leave you alone 'cause the weak will
Seek the weaker until they've broken them
could you get it back again
Would it be the same fulfillment to their lack of strength
At your expense left you with no defense they tore it down and i have
Felt the same as you, I've felt the same as you, I've felt the same
Locked inside the only place where you feel sheltered
where you feel safe
You lost yourself in your search to find something else to hide behind
The fearful always preyed upon your confidence
Did they see the consequence when they pushed you around
The arrogant build kingdoms made of the different ones
Breaking them 'til they've become just another crown
Refuse to feel, Anything at all refuse to slip, Refuse to
Fall can't be weak, Can't stand still you watch your back,
'Cause no one will you don't know why they had to go
This far traded your worth for these scars for your only
Company don't believe the lies that they told to you
Not one word was true you're alright, You're alright,
You're alright


Sick Cycle Carousel"


if shame had a face i think it would kind of look like mine
if it had a home would it be my eyes would you believe me
if i said i am tired of this now here we go one more time
i tried to climb your steps i tried to chase you down
i tried to see how low i could get down to the ground
i tried to earn my way i tried to change this mind
you better believe i tried to beat this
when will this end it goes on and on and over and over and over again
keep spinning around i know it won't stop till i step down from this for good
i never thought i'd end up here i never thought i'd be standing
where i am i guess i kind of thought it would be easier than this
i guess i was wrong now one more

I'll put a few of the lyrics. Probably because I'm too lazy to find the whole song!! :)

Goo Goo Dolls - Iris †-- The verse that goes ďAnd I don't want the world to see me Cause I don't think that they'd understand When everything's made to be broken I just want you to know who I am And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming Or the moment of truth in your lies When everything feels like the movies Yeah you bleed just to know you're aliveĒ Nailed me the summer I went through the worst of it. I played it over and over

Fiona Apple - Sullen Girl -- the whole #### song. (Thank you to Shannon who turned me twoard Fiona Apple!!!)

Dido - Honestly ok - "I just want to be safe in my own skin...I just want to be happy again!" Amen to that

Sarah Mclachlan - everything by her. Especially †Good Enough - "I don't understand you deserve so much more than this", Hold On "hold on this is going to hurt like ####" Angel - again the whole song

Tori - Silent all these years, Little Earthquakes, 1000 Oceans

There are about a million more but that is all I can think of right now. :) This was fun.

here is songs that helped me

Amy Grant

Ask Me

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

Till she crawls up in her bed
acting quiet as a mouse
Deep inside she's listening
for a creaking in the house
But no one's left to harm her
she's finally safe and sound
There's a peace she has 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 heavens
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

Most all of Tori's songs inspire me, especially "Silent all These Years" - becuase I can really relate to it, but here are a couple I like equally well.

Flower
(by the Eels)

Turn the ugly light off, God
I wanna feel the night
Every day it shines down on me
Don't you think that I see
Don't you think that I see
What it's all about
Hard to look the other way
While the world passes me by
And everyone is trying to bum me out

It's a pretty big world, God
And I am awful small
Everyday they rain down on me
Flower in a hailstorm
Flower in a hailstorm
I'm living for the drought
I can throw it back at them
But then I'd play their game
And everyone is trying to bum me out

When I came into this world they slapped me
And every day since then I'm slapped again
Tomorrow's king, an unsightly coward
You see I know I'm gonna win

Turn the ugly light off, God
Don't wanna see my face
Everyday it will betray me
Don't you think that I know
Don't you think that I know
What they're talking about
If they step on me tonight
They're gonna pay someday
And everyone is trying to bum me out


Land of Shame
(by Vast)

Looking out the window staring at the things I can't see
If I listen closely I can hear a dying dream
I'm wrapped up in the warmth of an unforgiving mind
I'm on vacation in another time

And we can thank the TV, we can thank the men of old
For this legacy of hate somehow they have sold
I'm wrapped up in the warmth of an unforgiving game
I'm on vacation in the land of shame

When the pigs are flying and it's freezing cold in ####
Maybe we'll forgive the children, baby
Only time can tell

If I listen closely I can hear a dying dream
I'm on vacation in the land of shame

We'll be alone together in a world we call our own
We'll be alone together in a place that doesn't feel
Like home
We'll be alone together
We'll leave this land of shame

This song has special significance for me. :)

Birmingham (Amanda Marshall)

Virgil Spencer's got a nineteen-inch Hitachi
And many demons lingering
Friday night he pulled a gun to change the channel
Something that he picked up from the King
His wife remembers well the man she knew
Seems the dreams she had have all turned black and blue
She's wasted years
No time for tears

[Chorus]
Cause there's another chance and a someday soon
Shining like the Alabama moon
She's looking for her promised land
Out beyond the lights of... Birmingham

It's three a.m. and Virgil's passed out on the sofa
a fifth of Jim Beam on the floor
She's packed a bag she slips the keys out of his pocket
She's careful not to slam the door
And as she drives she rubs her rosary
She's never been so all alone, she's never felt so free
She's got miles to go
Blind faith and hope


As the rain falls down upon the interstate
Any doubts she had are all but washed away
one long look back
At birmingham

Cause there's another chance and a someday soon
Shining like the Alabama moon
She's looking for her promised land
Out beyond the lights of... Birmingham


So Unsexy (Alanis Morrisette)

                                            Oh these little rejections how they add up quickly
One small sideways look and I feel so ungood
Somewhere along the way I think I gave you the power to make
Me feel the way I thought only my father could

Oh these little rejections how they seem so real to me
One forgotten birthday I'm all but cooked
How these little abandonments seem to sting so easily
I'm 13 again am I 13 for good?

I can feel so unsexy for someone so beautiful
So unloved for someone so fine
I can feel so boring for someone so interesting
So ignorant for someone of sound mind
Oh these little protections how they fail to serve me
One forgotten phone call and I'm deflated
Oh these little defenses how they fail to comfort me
Your hand pulling away and I'm devastated

When will you stop leaving baby?
When will I stop deserting baby?
When will I start staying with myself?

Oh these little projections how they keep springing from me
I jump my ship as I take it personally
Oh these little rejections how they disappear quickly
The moment I decide not to abandon me

These first two are what i like to sit and listen to on my own, and sometimes cry. †They are the songs that make me wallow in my own self pity, which we all need to do sometimes.

UNINVITED-ALANIS MORRISETTE

Like anyone would be
I am flattered by your fascination with me
Like any hotblooded woman
I have simply wanted an object to crave
But you you're not allowed

You're uninvited
An unfortunate slight
Must be strangely exciting
To watch the stoic squirm

Must be somewhat heartening
To watch shepherd meet shepherd
But you you're not allowed
You're uninvited

An unfortunate slight
Like any uncharted territory
I must seem greatly intriguing
You speak of my love like

You have experienced love like mine before
But this is not allowed
You're uninvited
An unfortunate slight
I don't think you unworty

I need a moment to deliberate


MARY JANE - ALANIS MORRISETTE

What's the matter Mary Jane, you had a hard day
As you place the don't disturb sign on the door
You lost your place in line again, what a pity
You never seem to want to dance anymore

It's a long way down
On this roller coaster
The last chance streetcar
Went off the track
And you're on it

I hear you're counting sheep again Mary Jane
What's the point of tryin' to dream anymore
I hear you're losing weight again Mary Jane
Do you ever wonder who you're losing it for

Well it's full speed baby
In the wrong direction
There's a few more bruises
If that's the way
You insist on heading

Please be honest Mary Jane
Are you happy

Please don't censor your tears

You're the sweet crusader
And you're on your way
You're the last great innocent
And that's why I love you

So take this moment Mary Jane and be selfish
Worry not about the cars that go by
All that matters Mary Jane is your freedom
Keep warm my dear, keep dry

Tell me
Tell me
What's the matter Mary Jane...

This song reminds me of Love, and how lucky I am to have found it at last. †Its by an Irish band so I don't know if all of you guys will have heard of them.

WITH OR WITHOUT YOU - U2
See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you
With or without you
With or without you
Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you
With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you
And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away
My hands are tied
My body bruised, she's got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose
And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away
With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you
With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you
With or without you.

This song always reminds me to be strong, and tells me that I have got something worth fighting for.

EVERYBODY HURTS - R.E.M

When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,
when you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on.
Don't let yourself go, everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes.
Sometimes everything is wrong. Now it's time to sing along.
When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)
if you feel like letting go, (hold on)
when you think you've had too much of this life, well hang on.
Everybody hurts. Take comfort in your friends.
Everybody hurts. Don't throw your hand. Oh, no. Don't throw your hand.
If you feel like you're alone, no, no, no, you are not alone
If you're on your own in this life, the days and nights are long,
when you think you've had too much of this life to hang on.
Well, everybody hurts sometimes,
everybody cries. And everybody hurts sometimes.
And everybody hurts sometimes. So, hold on, hold on.
Hold on, hold on. Hold on, hold on. Hold on, hold on. (repeat & fade)
(Everybody hurts. You are not alone.)

That I Would Be Good - Alanis Morissette

that I would be good even if i did nothing
that I would be good even if i got the thumbs down
that I would be good if I got and stayed sick
that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds

that i would be fine even even if I went bankrupt
that i would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
that i would be great if I was no longer queen
that i would be grand if i was not all knowing

that i would be loved even when i numb myself
that i would be good even when i am overwhelmed
that i would be loved even when i was fuming
that i would be good even if i was clingy

that i would be good even if i lost sanity
that i would be good
whether with or without you

two songs i find incredibly cathartic are "big man with a gun" and "closer", both from the album The Downward Spiral by Nine Inch Nails. i won't post the lyrics because they are very explicit, but #### something in them works for me. it feels good to put them on really loud and just let it go, or sometimes yell along with them.

luv'n'hugs,
