"Life On My Own" by 3 doors down

Living risky,
never scared, wander
Closer to the edge
Nothing valued think no fear,
Always wondering why youíre here
All your purposes are gone, nothingís
Right and nothingís wrong
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
Feel no sorrow, feel no pain
Kiss me while Iím still alive
Kill me while I kiss the sky
Let me die on my own terms,
Let me live and let me learn
Now Iíll follow my own way, and Iíll
Live on to another #### day
Freedom carries sacrifice,
Remember when this was my life
Looking forward, not behind
Everybodyís got to cross that line
Free me now to give me a place,
Keep me caged and free the beast
Falling faster, time goes by,
Fear is not seen through these eyes
What there was will never be,
Now Iím blind and cannot see
Kiss me while Iím still alive
Kill me while I kiss the sky
Let me die on my own terms, let me
Live and let me learn
Now Iíll follow my own way, and Iíll
Live on to another #### day
Freedom carries sacrifice,
Remember when this was my life
Kiss me while Iím still alive
Kill me while I kiss the sky
Let me die on my own terms, let me
Live and let me learn
Now Iíll follow my own way,
And Iíll live on to another #### day
Freedom carries sacrifice,
Remember when this was my life.

this is a favorite by Jack Johnson. i think the message in it is so amazing and important. it shows how the buck can't just keep getting passed. it HAS to stop SOMEWHERE. our society depends on us to define it. i thnk this accurately portrays the damage of the negative definitions we are inundated with throughout our lives. how all of our lifes are connected...

"Cookie Jar"

I would turn on the T.V.
† † †but it's SO embarrasing
to see all the other people...
† † I don't know what they mean

and it was magic at first,
† † when they spoke with out sound
but now this world is gonna hurt
† † † †better turn that thing down,
† ...better turn it around

"well, it wasn't me", says the boy with the gun
†"sure i pulled the trigger, but it needed to be done,
because life's been killing me ever since it BEGUN...
† † † †...you can't blame me cuz i'm TOO young"

"you can't blame me,
† † † † sure the killer was my son-
† but i didn't teach him to pull the trigger on the gun,
it's the killing on his T.V screen,
† † you can't blame me, it's those IMAGES he seen"

"well you can't blame me", says the media man...
† † "i wasn't the one who came up with the plan,
i just point my camera at what the people want to see..
† man, it's a two way mirror and you can't blame me"

"you can't blame me", says the singer of the song
† †or the maker of the movie which he based his life on
"its only entertainment and as anyone can see...
† †its smoke machines and make- up, man you can't fool me"


it was you it was me
† † † it was EVERY man
we ALL got the blood on our hands
† we only recieve what we DEMAND
†and if we want ####,
then #### is what we'll have.

i would turn on the T.V.
† †but it is SO embarassing
to see all the other people
† †don't even KNOW what they mean

it was magic at first
† † †but it let EVERONE down
now this world is gonna hurt
† † you better turn it around
† † † † † † turn it around.

all my love,
sparrow

This is the first single off Sarah McLachlan's upcoming CD (release date is November 4th I think)

These are the "unofficial" lyrics (for whatever that is worth)

Fallen

Heaven bent to take my hand
And lead me through the fire
Be the long awaited answer
to a long and painful fight

Truth be told I've tried my best
But somewhere along the way
I got caught up in all there was to offer
And the cost was so much more than I could bear

Chorus:
Though I've tried, I've fallen..
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so....

We all begin with good intent
Love was raw and young
We believed that we could change ourselves
The past could be undone
But we carry on our back the burden
Time always reveals
The lonely light of morning
The wound that would not heal
It's the bitter taste of losing everything
That I've held so dear.

Chorus

Heaven bent to take my hand
Nowhere left to turn
I'm lost to those I thought were friends
to everyone I know
Oh they turned their heads embarassed
Pretend that they don't see
But it's one missed step
You'll slip before you know it
And there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed

Chorus

This song has really helped me get back to being able to sleep SOMEWHAT normally again, so I wanted to share it.  I found this song AFTER I had started conjuring images of three angels guarding me while I slept, and it really strengthened the image of angelic protection.

I guess it might *t* for religion...


Jesus, King of Angels (Fernando Ortega)

Jesus, King of angels, heaven's light
Shine Your face upon this house tonight
Let no evil come into my dreams
Light of heaven, keep me in Your peace
Remind me how You made dark spirits flee
And spoke Your power to the raging sea
And spoke Your mercy to a sinful man
Remind me, Jesus, this is what I am

CHORUS:
The universe is vast beyond the stars
But You are mindful when the sparrow falls
And mindful of the anxious thoughts
That find me, surround me, and bind me

With all my heart I love You, Sovereign Lord
Tomorrow let me love You even more
And rise to speak the goodness of Your name
Until I close my eyes and sleep again

CHORUS

Jesus King of angels heaven's light
Hold my hand and keep me through this night


Lora

Currently i've been listening to this song:

I will stand Fast by Fred Small

Echoes of childhood whisper violence
Cold wind beating out of the past
Rage in your throat, muffled silence
Hold on, I will stand fast

In the darkness your guardians had left you
Cold wind beating out of the past
None to hear your cries, none to defend you
Hold on, I will stand fast

CHORUS:
I will stand fast, I will stand fast
You are safe in the daylight at last
Nightmare and fear, they have no power here
I will stand fast

I will listen to the terrors that tried you
Cold wind beating out of the past
I will cradle the child that breathes inside you
Hold on, I will stand fast

Though you take the shape of a hundred ancient horrors
Cold wind beating out of the past
Though you strike at me and flee into your sorrow
Hold, on I will stand fast

CHORUS

Birds flash upon a branch in winter
Cold wind beating out of the past
Ice in the sun begins to splinter
Hold on, I will stand fast

You will walk with no fetters to bind you
Cold wind beating out of the past
All the love you have wanted will find you
Hold on, I will stand fast

Chorus

Also good on the same tape is "Scott and Jamie" also related to child abuse and the fun but off topic "If i were a moose"... :)

These lyrics touched my heart, the first time i heard the song on the radio. I couldn't find official lyrics, so im not sure if these are the exact same lyrics, but they seem like it. Some lines may *t* so be careful.

Leave the Light On, Beth Hart

I seen my myself with a dirty face
I cut my luck with a dirty ace
I leave the light on, I leave the light on
I went from zero to minus ten
I drank your wine, then I stole your man
I leave the light on, I leave that light on

Daddy ain't that bad, he just plays rough
I am that scarred when I'm covered up
I leave the light on, yeah, I leave the light on
Little girl hiding underneath the bed
Was it something I did, must be somethin' I said
I leave the light on, I better leave the light on

Cuz I wanna love, I wanna live
I don't know much about it
And I never did, no no

17 and I'm all messed up inside
I cut myself just to feel alive
I leave the light on, I leave the light on
21 on the run, on the run, on the run from myself
>From myself and everyone
I leave the light on, better leave the light on

Cuz I wanna love, I wanna live
I don't know much about it
And I never did
I don't know what to do, can the damage be undone?
I swore to God I'd never be what I've become

Lucky stars and fairy tales
I'm gonna bathe myself in a wishin' well
Pretty scars from cigarettes
I never will forget, I never will forget

I'm still afraid to be alone
Wish that the moon would follow me home
I leave that light on, I leave that light on
I ain't that bad, I'm just messed up
I ain't that sad, but I, I'm sad enough

Cuz I wanna love, I wanna live
No, I don't know much about it
And I never did
I don't know what to do, can the damage be undone?
I swore to God that I'd never be what I've become

I leave that light, I leave that light
I leave that light on

God bless the child with the dirty face
(Can't sleep tonight cuz it just ain't safe)
She leaves the light on, I leave that light on

Long Way Down by the Goo Goo Dolls

Oh, here you are there's nothing left to say
You're not supposed be that way.
Did they push you out? Did they throw you away? Touch me now and I don't care, when they take me I'm not there. Almost human, but but I'll never be the same

Chorus
Long way down
I don't think I'll make on my own
Long way down
I don't wanna live in here alone
Long way down
I don't think I'll make it on my own

I never put you down. I never pushed you away. You're not supposed to be that way.
Anything you want, there's nothing I could say.
Is there anything to feel? Is it pain that makes you real? Cut me off before it kills me.

Chorus

I never put you down. I never pushed you away.
Take another piece of me. Give my mind a new disease. And the black and white world never fades to gray.
Long way down
I don't think I'll make it on my own
Long way down
I don't wanna live in here alone
Long way down
I don't think I'll make it on my own

On my own
On my own

Been on a bit of a Goo Goo Dolls kick.  (me on a music kick? ??? )

Sympathy - Goo Goo Dolls

Stranger than your sympathy
And this is my apology
I kill myself from the inside out
And all my fears have pushed you out

I wish for things that I don't need
All I wanted
And what I chase won't set me free
It's all I wanted
And I get scared but I'm not crawling on my knees

Oh yeah everything's all wrong yeah
Everything's all wrong yeah
Where the hell did I think I was

Stranger than your sympathy
I take these things so I don't feel
I kill myself from the inside out
Now my head's been filled with doubt

It's hard to lead the life you choose
All I wanted
When all your luck's run out on you
All I wanted
And you can't see when all your dreams are coming true

Oh yeah it's easy to forget yeah
And you choke on the regrets yeah
Who the hell did I think I was

Stranger than your sympathy
All these thoughts you stole from me
I'm not sure where I belong
Nowhere's home and I'm all wrong

And I wasn't all the things
I tried to make believe I was
And I wouldn't be the one to kneel
Before the dreams I wanted
And all the talk and all the lies
Were all the empty things disguised as me
Yeah
Stranger than your sympathy
Stranger than your sympathy...

There are so many good songs, this is just one of them. TRIGGERING BE CAREFUL

Someday I'll Be Saturday Night - Bon Jovi

Hey man, I'm aliveI'm takin' each day a night at a time
I'm feeling like a monday but someday I'll be saturday night

Hey my name is Jim, where did I go wrong?
My life's a bargin basement all the good sh*ts gone
I just can't hold a job, where do I belong
I'm sleeping in my car, my dreams moved on

My name is Billy Jean, my love was bought and sold
I'm only 16, I feel a hundred years old
My foster daddy went, took my innocence away
The street life ain't much better but at least I get paid

And tuesday just might go my way
It can't get worse then yesterday
Thursdays, fridays they ain't been kind
But somehow I'll survive

Hey man I'm alive, I'm takin' each day a night at a time
Yeah I'm down but I know I'll get by
Hey hey hey hey man I gotta live my life
Like I ain't got nothin' but this roll of the dice
I'm feeling like a monday but someday I'll be saturday night

Now I can't say my name, and tell you where I am
I wanna blow myself away, don't know if I can

I wish that I could be in some other time and place
With someone else's soul, someone else's face

Tuesdays just might go my way
It can't get worse then yesterday
Thursdays, fridays ain't been kind
But somehow I'll get by

Hey man, I'm alive, I'm takin' each day a night at a time
Yeah I'm down, but I know I'll get by
Hey hey hey hey man I gotta live my life
I'm gonna pick up all the peices and what's left of my pride
I'm feeling like a monday but someday I'll be saturday night

Saturday night, Here we go

Someday I'll be saurday night
I'll be back on my feet, I'll be doin' all right
It might not be tomorrow baby, that's OK
I ain't goin' down I'm gonna find a way

CHORUS

i'm so not sure the actual name and artist of this song, but i heard it at the end of one episode of the american comedy "scrubs"

i might leave the party early,
at least with no regrets,
maybe this is as good as it gets
