I hope this one hasn't already been posted. There are so many songs on here already.

It's "Desensitized" by Invertigo.

When I reach out, you move away from my hands
You're never telling me why
We make plans to spend
Time you forget and the days are just passing us by

When I ask you you never understand it
You don't know what you haven't done
And when I try to explain it sounds like complaint
And the words only make you more numb

Is there a fire if you don't see the smoke?
We can't get higher if you don't let it go.

Ooh ooh ooh
How did your heart ever get like that
How did someone ever hurt so bad
That you can't see that
You've been kicked inside
You're desensitized yeah
Oooh ooh ooh
How did you heart ever get so cold
How did someone ever get so close
That you just don't know
How it feels inside
You're desensitized

I wanna believe that it's a phase you go through
That only gets harder to tell
And sometimes I think it's an easier thing to believe
That there's somebody else

(Sub) (Chorus)

Whatever they did / Whatever they said
You know it's much better just to run and forget
Whatever it was / Whoever's to blame
You know you can let yourself be feeling again

( Chorus Out )

This one is probably triggering... but it helps me somehow...

"Baby Don't Cry (Keep Ya Head Up II)"

[2Pac]
I feel you {uhh} .. (baby don't)
but you can't, you can't give up
{Hey.. 2Pac what?}

[2Pac + H.E.A.T.]
Baby please don't cry, I hope you got your head up {Outlawz}
Even when the road is hard, never give up
Baby don't cry, I hope you got your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up {Keep ya head up}

[2Pac]
Now here's a story bout a woman with dreams
So picture perfect at thirteen, an ebony queen
Beneath the surface it was more than just a crooked smile
Nobody knew about her secret so it took a while
I could see a tear fall slow down her black cheek
Sheddin quiet tears in the back seat; so when she asked me,
"What would you do if it was you?"

Couldn't answer such a horrible pain to live through
I tried to trade places in the tragedy
I couldn't picture three crazed ni**az grabbin me
For just a moment I was trapped in the pain, Lord come and take me
Four ni**az violated, they chased and they raped me
Even though it wasn't me, I could feel the grief
Thinkin with your brains blown that would make the pain go
No! You got to find a way to survive
cause they win when your soul dies... baby please don't cry...

TW maybe this song always makes me cry it reminds me of what i lost and hopefully someday a long long time from now i'll be able to laugh until i cry again.

Something Beautiful -- Newsboys

I wanna start it over
I wanna start again
I wanna a new beginning
One without an end
I feel it inside
Calling out to me

Chorus:
Itís a voice that whispers my name
Itís a kiss without any shame
Something beautiful
Like a song that stirs in my head
Singing love will take us where
Somethings beautiful

Iíve heard it in the silence
Seen it on a face
Iíve felt it in the long hour
Like a sweet embrace
I know this is true
It's calling out to me

Chorus:

Itís the child on her wedding day
Itís the daddy that gives her away
Something beautiful
When we laugh so hard we cry
Oh the love between you and I
Something beautiful

Chorus:

Itís the child on her wedding day
Itís the daddy that gives her away
Something beautiful
When we laugh so hard we cry
Itís the love between you and I
Something beautiful

This song by avril lavigne when I'm feeling frustrated.

"Take Me Away"

I cannot find a way to describe it
It's there inside; all I do is hide
I wish that it would just go away
What would you do, you do, if you knew
What would you do

[Chorus:]
All the pain I thought I knew
All the thoughts lead back to you
Back to what was never said
Back and forth inside my head
I can't handle this confusion
I'm unable; come and take me away

I feel like I am all alone
All by myself I need to get around this
My words are cold, I don't want them to hurt you
If I show you, I don't think you'd understand
Cause no one understands

[Chorus]

I'm going nowhere (on and on and)
I'm getting nowhere (on and on and on)
Take me away
I'm going nowhere (on and off and off and on)
(and off and on)

[Chorus]

Take me away
Break me away
Take me away

When I'm angry and depressed I listen to 3 Doors Down so I can 'vent'

"When I'm Gone"

There's another world inside of me
That you may never see
There're secrets in this life
That I can't hide
Somewhere in this darkness
There's a light that I can't find
Maybe it's too far away...
Or maybe I'm just blind...

Or maybe I'm just blind...

[Chorus]
So hold me when I'm here
Right me when I'm wrong
Hold me when I'm scared
And love me when I'm gone
Everything I am
And everything in me
Wants to be the one
You wanted me to be
I'll never let you down
Even if I could
I'd give up everything
If only for your good
So hold me when I'm here
Right me when I'm wrong
You can hold me when I'm scared
You won't always be there
So love me when I'm gone

Love me when I'm gone...

When your education X-Ray
Cannot see under my skin
I won't tell you a damn thing
That I could not tell my friends
Roaming through this darkness
I'm alive but I'm alone
Part of me is fighting this
But part of me is gone

[Chorus]

Or maybe I'm just blind...

[Chorus]

Love me when I'm gone...

Love me when I'm gone
When I'm Gone
When I'm Gone
When I'm Gone

When I think about my husband's love and support for me - "The Story" by Brandi Carlile


All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true...I was made for you

I climbed across the mountain tops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But baby I broke them all for you
Because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
Yeah you do and I was made for you

You see the smile that's on my mouth
Is hiding the words that don't come out
And all of my friends who think that I'm blessed
They don't know my head is a mess
No, they don't know who I really am
And they don't know what I've been through but you do
And I was made for you...

This song by Rascal Flatts when I need to think positive

"My Wish"

I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
And each road leads you where you want to go,
And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,

But more than anything, more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

I hope you never look back, but ya never forget,
All the ones who love you, in the place you left,
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
And you help somebody every chance you get,
Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,
And you always give more than you take.

But more than anything, yeah, and more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

This is my wish
I hope you know somebody loves you
May all your dreams stay big

SAVIOUR by VNV Nation



As the stars appear
I know I'll find you staring at the sky.
Pointlessly reaching for some light
You hope to guide your sorry way.

Your body bleeding.
Your body burned.
Your body scarred.
Around the cinder of your heart

A God of love.
A God of care.
A God of hope.
A God of words.
A God as lost as you and blind
to fill your hollow soul again.
You seek a God to stand above you,
wrapping healing arms around you.
You'll find another God of pain,
a God of suffering and tears.
Give yourself unto your God.
Sacrifice yourself again.
Burn your thoughts erase your will
to Gods of suffering and tears.
Tie hallowed bonds around your hands.
Kneel before this seat of shame
to Gods as lost,
Gods as blind,
Gods of suffering and pain.

i don't who sings it (a girl) its called "in the arms of an angel" i really like it but sometimes i cry at it



I have no idea if it's been posted, but if it hasn't it probably should've been.

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
Thereís always one reason
To feel not good enough
And itís hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh beautiful release
Memory seeps from my veins
Let me be empty
And weightless and maybe
Iíll find some peace tonight

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
Youíre in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
Thereís vultures and thieves at your back
And the storm keeps on twisting
You keep on building the lie
That you make up for all that you lack
It donít make no difference
Escaping one last time
Itís easier to believe in this sweet madness oh
This glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
Youíre in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there
Youíre in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

It's rather fitting for my first post to be in here to be in the music thread. Because music is half my passion, the other'll be spoken of soon enough I'm sure.

Possible :trigger: -- addressing abuser.

Imagine that I can't be comforted at all
In pieces I went from crawling into a ball
Evidence, it's in my breathing every day
Less and less and less

Hey you - you wore me out
There was nothing left for anybody else
Listen you, you're the last little shit that anyone expected
Could put me through this
Yeah it's true

Turbulence, autopilot to control
Down and down and down
And if he's there then I'll take my order to go
He shouldn't see, he shouldn't know

Hey you - you wore me out
There was nothing left for anybody else
And you, you're the last little shit that anyone expected
Could put me through this
Yeah fucker it's true

And over there in the corner of the room
Sat little Jack Horner in his gloom
Oh how you like it there

Hey you- you slithered around while you ripped every vein out
And you - your once so charming self inflicted tortured act
It's a loser and a poser's tool

Hey you - you wore me out
There was nothing left for anybody else
And you, you're the last little shit that anyone expected
Could put me through this
Yeah fucker it's true

Imagine that.


:trigger: over.


The next song's one I've known for a while, liked, and took up as a personal anthem... tonight. Because something has to give. I've lived five years on denial and disassociation... and as the bold part implies, healing's not a pretty process, it's necessary, and you have to feel it all to feel the good parts. "Shadow" would be, to me, that which hasn't been spoken of through all this time of denial.

My shadow's
Shedding skin and
I've been picking scabs again.
I'm down digging through
My old muscles looking for a clue.
I've been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could've been.
I've been wallowing in my own
Confused and insecure delusions
For a piece to cross me over
Or a word to guide me in.

I wanna feel the changes coming down.
I wanna know what I've been hiding in my shadow.
Change is coming through my shadow.

My shadow's shedding skin
I've been picking my scabs again.
I've been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could've been
I've been wallowing in my own
Chaotic and insecure delusions.
I wanna feel the change consume me,
Feel the outside turning in.

I wanna feel the metamorphosis and cleansing
I've endured within my shadow.
Change is coming. Now is my time.

Listen to my muscle memory.
Contemplate what I've been clinging to.
Forty-six and two ahead of me.

I choose to live and to grow,
Take and give and to move,
Learn and love and to cry,
Kill and die and to
Be paranoid and to lie,
Hate and fear and to do
What it takes to move through.

I choose to live and to lie,
Kill and give and to die,
Learn and love and to do
What it takes to step through.


See my shadow changing,
Stretching up and over me
Soften this old armor.
Hoping I can clear the way
By stepping through my shadow,
Coming out the other side.
Step into the shadow.
Forty six and two are just ahead of me.

i think that missy higgins has some great songs, and fiona apple too. anyway, some songs -

MISSY HIGGINS LYRICS

"Nightminds"

Just lay it all down. Put your face into my neck and let it fall out.
I know
I know
I know.
I knew before you got home.
This world you're in now,
It doesn't have to be alone,
I'll get there somehow, 'cos
I know I know I know
When, even springtime feels cold.

But I will learn to breathe this ugliness you see,
So we can both be there and we can both share the dark.
And in our honesty, together we will rise,
Out of our nightminds, and into the light
At the end of the fight...

You were blessed by a different kind of inner view: it's all magnified.
The highs would make you fly, and the lows make you want to die.
And I was once there, hanging from that very ledge where you are standing.
So I know
I know
I know,
It's easier to let go.

But I will learn to breathe this ugliness you see,
So we can both be there and we can both share the dark.
And in our honesty, together we will rise out of our nightminds
And into the light at the end of the fight.

...and in our honesty, together we will rise out of our nightminds
And into the light... at the end of the fight...


"Falling"

Don't say what you're about to say.
Believe me, you are my fate.
And I believe you'll find a way,
or will you keep on falling until you reach the ground?
Of your lonely mind will you ever find yourself again?
And will you keep on dying until you've finally found
a better place where you find you will not wake up again?

Cause what you see is crystal wall,
what you breath is silver air,
but weigh this moment with a future of your dreams no longer there.
What you'll see is burning black,
and what'll you see is empty air,
so way this moment with a future of your dreams no longer there...

You're falling... yeah,
You're falling... yeah,
So take my hand, and come on let's fly.

There's always someone laughing,
from the corner of their cage,
but to fly amongst the mountains you must dance within the waves.
Or will you keep on falling until you reach the ground?
Of your lonely mind will you ever find yourself again?
And will you keep on dying until you've finally found a better
place where you find you will not wake up again?

Cause what you see is crystal wall,
what you breath is silver air,
but weigh this moment with a future of your dreams no longer there.
What you'll see is burning black,
and what you'll see is empty air,
so way this moment with a future of your dreams no longer there...

You're falling... yeah,
You're falling... yeah,
So take my hand, and come on let's fly.


"Scar"

He left a card, a bar of soap and a scrubbing brush next to a note
That said "use these down to your bones"
And before I knew I had shiny skin and it felt easy being clean like him
I thought "this one knows better than I do"

A triangle trying to squeeze through a circle
He tried to cut me so I'd fit

And doesn't that sound familiar? Doesn't that hit too close to home?
Doesn't that make you shiver; the way things could've gone?
And doesn't it feel peculiar when everyone wants a little more?
And so that I do remember to never go that far,
Could you leave me with a scar?

So the next one came with a bag of treats, she smelled like sugar and
spoke like the sea
And she told me don't trust them, trust me
Then she pulled at my stitches one by one, looked at my insides clicking
her tongue and said
"This will all have to come undone"

A triangle trying to squeeze through a circle
She tried to blunt me so I'd fit

And doesn't that sound familiar? Doesn't that hit too close to home?
Doesn't that make you shiver; the way things could have gone?
And doesn't it feel peculiar when everyone wants a little more?
And so that I do remember to never go that far,
Could you leave me with a scar?

I think I realized just in time, although my old self was hard to find
You can bathe me in your finest wine but I'll never give you mine
'Cos I'm a little bit tired of fearing that I'll be the bad fruit nobody buys
Tell me, did you think we'd all dream the same?

And doesn't that sound familiar? Doesn't that hit too close to home?
Doesn't that make you shiver; the way things could have gone?
And doesn't it feel peculiar when everyone wants a little more?
And so that I do remember to never go that far,
Could you leave me with a scar?
Could you leave me with a scar?


"Hold Me Tight"

You cross the room to me,
Put a little bit of paper in my hand, then leave.
As the door goes bang,
There's a little bit inside me that hopes it is blank.

As the words you wrote are burning,
In my head they keep returning, they said
Hold me tight,
cos I'm losing all the energy to fight.
Yeah, hold me tight,
cos I'm losing all the energy to fight.

I should run outside,
I should be running after you.
I should need to cry.
but I don't I stay,
cos theres a little bit inside me,
That likes this pain.

As the words you wrote are burning,
In my head they keep returning, they said
Hold me tight,
cos I'm losing all the energy to fight.
Yeah, hold me tight,
cos I'm losing all the energy to fight, for you.

So I threw it away,
right next to the others that all had the same refrain.
Hold me tight,
cos I'm losing all the energy to fight.
Yeah, hold me tight,
I've been throwing pointless flares at you you're nigh,
So hold me tight,
cos I'm losing all the energy to fight
Hold me tight,
cos I'm losing all the energy,
Ohh, yeah I'm losing all the energy to fight.


FIONA APPLE

"Extraordinary Machine"

I certainly haven't been shopping for any new shoes
-And-
I certainly haven't been spreading myself around
I still only travel by foot and by foot, it's a slow climb,
But I'm good at being uncomfortable, so
I can't stop changing all the time

I notice that my opponent is always on the go
-And-
Won't go slow, so's not to focus, and I notice
He'll hitch a ride with any guide, as long as
They go fast from whence he came
- But he's no good at being uncomfortable, so
He can't stop staying exactly the same

If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can't help it, the road just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me, or treat me mean
I'll make the most of it, I'm an extraordinary machine

I seem to you to seek a new disaster every day
You deem me due to clean my view and be at peace and lay
I mean to prove I mean to move in my own way, and say,
I've been getting along for long before you came into the play

I am the baby of the family, it happens, so
- Everybody cares and wears the sheeps' clothes
While they chaperone
Curious, you looking down your nose at me, while you appease
- Courteous, to try and help - but let me set your
Mind at ease

(Chorus)

-Do I so worry you, you need to hurry to my side?
-It's very kind
But it's to no avail; I don't want the bail
I promise you, everything will be just fine

If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can't help it, the road just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me, or treat me mean
I'll make the most of it, I'm an extraordinary machine

"Better Version Of Me"

The nickel dropped
When I was on
My way beyond
The Rubicon
What did I do

And of the games that I can handle
None are ones worth the candle
What can I do

I'm a frightened, fickle person
Fighting, cryin', kickin', cursin'
What should I do

Oooh, after all the folderol,
And hauling over coals stops
What will I do

Can't take a good day without a bad one
Don't feel just to smile until I've had one
Where did I learn

I make a fuss about a little thing
The rhyme is losing to the riddling
Where's the turn

I don't want a home, I'd ruin that
Home is where my habits have a habitat
Why give it a turn

Oh, after all the folderol
And hauling over coals stops
What did I learn

I am likely to miss the main event
If I stop to cry or complain again
So I will keep a deliberate pace
Let the damned breeze dry my face

Oh, mister, wait until you see
What I'm gonna be

I've got a plan, a demand and it just began
And if you're right, you'll agree

Here's coming a better version of me
Here it comes a better version of me
Here it comes a better version of me


INDIGO GIRLS LYRICS

"Touch Me Fall"

I'm waking from a dream
the neighborhood is green
all the sounds i've missed all the years
come down to wedding deaths and fears
and all i've heard has been in vain
like water on a stain

touch me
i'm so beautiful
rub your hands across my head
just like this
come with me
it's not worth it if you don't
are you hiding?
i am hiding

cypress moon
bald in june
like the granite in a stream
swamp ophelia i'm torn down
let your waters let me drown

touch me i'm so beautiful
rub your hands across my head
just like this
come with me
it's not worth it if you don't
are you crying?
i am crying

jump jump jump so high
watch me let you down
if i stumble i will stumble
if i fall i will fall
i'm trying to hold it like rain in a river
everything is getting bigger
better this won't last forever
touch me fall

touch me fall


MUSE LYRICS

"New Born"

Link it to the world
Link it to yourself
Stretch it like a birth squeeze
The love for what you hide
The bitterness inside
Is growing like the new born
When you've seen, seen
Too much, too young, young
Soulless is everywhere

Hopeless time to roam
The distance to your home
Fades away to nowhere
How much are you worth
You can't come down to earth
You're swelling up, you're unstoppable

'cause you've seen, seen
Too much, too young, young
Soulless is everywhere

Destroy the spineless
Show me it's real
Wasting our last chance
To come away
Just break the silence
'cause I'm drifting away
Away from you

Link it to the world
Link it to yourself
Stretch it like it's a birth squeeze
And the love for what you hide
And the bitterness inside
Is growing like the new born

When you've seen, seen
Too much, too young, young
Soulless is everywhere

Destroy the spineless
Show me it's real
Wasting their last chance
To come away
Just break the silence
'cause I'm drifting away
Away from you


EELS LYRICS

"Not Ready Yet"

There's a world outside
And i know 'cause i've heard talk
In my sweetest dream
I would go out for a walk

But i don't think i'm ready yet
I'm not feeling up to it now
Just not that steady yet
And i don't need you telling me how

There's some happiness
And my stone face cracks again
Maybe sometime sooner or later

But i don't think i'm ready yet
I'm not feeling up to it now
Just not that steady yet
And i don't need you telling me how

So if i leave my room
Don't you tell me to lighten up
Maybe sometime sooner or later

But i don't think i'm ready yet
I'm not feeling up to it now
Just not that steady yet
And i don't need you telling me how


RADIOHEAD LYRICS

"How To Disappear Completely"

That there, that's not me
I go where I please
I walk through walls
I float down the Liffey

I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here, I'm not here

In a little while
I'll be gone
The moment's already passed
Yeah, it's gone

I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here, I'm not here

Strobe lights and blown speakers
Fireworks and hurricanes

I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here, I'm not here....

Garbage - Silence Is Golden

If I am silent then I am not real
But if I speak up then no one will hear
If I wear a mask theres somewhere to hide

Silence is golden
I have been broken
Safe in my own skin
So nobody wins

If I raise my voice will someone get hurt
And if I cant feel then I wont get touched
If no truths are spoken then no lies can hide

Silence is golden
Nobody gets in
Safe in my own skin
So nobody wins

Did you hear me speak
Do you understand
Did you hear my voice
Will you hold my hand
Do you understand me

Wont someone listen
Nobody gets in
My bodys a temple
But nothing is simple
Silence is golden
I have been broken
Something was stolen
Safe in my own skin






Lacuna Coil - Falling Again

I lay, looking at my hands
I search in these lines
I've not the answer
I'm crying and I don't know
watching the sky
I search for an answer
I'm free, free to be
I'm not another liar
I just want to be myself... myself

And now the beat inside of me
is a sort of a cold breeze and I've
never any feeling inside
ruining me...
bring my body
carry it into another world
I know I live... but like a stone I'm falling down

I pray, looking into the sky
I can feel this rain
right now it's falling on me
fly, I just want to fly
life is all mine
some days I cry alone,
but I know I'm not the only one
I'm here, another day is gone
I don't want to die...
Please be there when I'll arrive, don't cry... please

I have a bunch of them and I don't have the lyrics to them all on me right now, so I'll probably be back again sometime later to post some more of them...



I Need Some Sleep- Eels

I need some sleep
It can't go on like this
I've tried counting sheep
But there's one I always miss

Everyone says I'm getting down too low
Everyone says "you've just gotta let it go"

I need some sleep
Time to put the old horse down
I'm in too deep
And the wheels keep spinning round

Everyone says I'm getting down too low
Everyone says "you've just gotta let it go"



Cry- James Blunt

I have seen peace
I have seen pain
Resting on the shoulders of your name
Do you see the truth
Through all their lies?
Do you see the world
Through troubled eyes?

And if you want to talk about it any more
Lie here on the floor
And cry on my shoulder, I'm a friend.

I have seen birth
I have seen death
Lived to see a lover's final breath
Do you see my guilt?
Should I feel fright?
Is the fire of hesitation burning bright?

And if you want to talk about what will be
Come and sit with me
And cry on my shoulder, I'm a friend.

You and I have lived through many things.
I'll hold on, hold on to your heart.
I wouldn't cry for anything
But don't go tearing your life apart.

I have seen fear
I have seen faith
Seen the look of anger on your face.

And if you want to talk about what will be
Come and sit with me
And cry on my shoulder, I'm a friend
And if you want to talk about it any more
Lie here on the floor
And cry on my shoulder, I'm a friend
Cry on the shoulder of a friend.

(lyrics taken from Chasing Time, because I pefer that version to the one on Back to Bedlam)



I have quite a few more but I'll probably post them later.

I've got a couple more that I know by heart...



Scarlet's Walk- Tori Amos

If you're a thought
You would want me to think you
And I did
Invited a guest up
Until you announced that
You had moved in

What do you plan to do with all your freedom?
The new sheriff said
Quite proud of his badge
You must admit the land is now in good hands
Yes time will tell that
You just lift your lamp

I will follow her on her path
Scarlet's walk through the violets
Just tell your gods for me
All debts are off this year
You're free to leave
Yes you're free to leave
Leaving terra
Leaving terra

There was a time
When I thought that her destiny
Should have been mine
Big brave nation
But instead her medicine
Now forgotten

What do you plan to do with all your stories?
The new sheriff said
Quite proud of his badge
We'll weave them through every rocket's red glare
And huddled masses
You just lift your lamp

I will follow her on her path
Scarlet's walk through the violets
Just tell your gods for me
All debts are off this year
You're free to leave
Yes you're free to leave
Leaving terra
Leaving terra

If you're a thought
You would want me to think you
And I did
And I did.



Mr. King- Nerina Pallot

Good days, bad days
I've had a few of those
Same old story, I know how this song goes
At least I did
But now I'm not so sure
Nothing's in its place
Nothing's certain any more

Bird's fly, trees sway,
Why can't I be like that?
Happy, knowing what I am in fact
And leaving be
But truth has been obscured
I am only human
And I'm always wanting more

And the world is a place
And they say it's on our side
But I wonder, Is there comfort
In those moments when we die
Now I see, Mr. King,
This was in the books you gave me
Which I read, disbelieving
Thinking poets are depressed
Hey, Mr. King, I have changed
I confess

Oh those good days
I remember well
Tape on windows
Wintertime was hell
But it was fun.
And people there were kind
There was good work to be done
And I learned to think my time

And the world was a good place
And in days where I lived
I imagined life had purpose
And I'd something good to give
Mr. Cave played along
On the battered hallway piano
Oh, every love song a secret to be shared
Oh, Mr. King, how I wish
I was back there

Now I've got ten things lined up on a shelf
Reasons to be cheerful for myself
I don't know why
You're showing me the sky
You say you see heaven, I see hell
But want to try

And the world is a place
And I pray it's on my side
But I'd find greater comfort
If I just laid down and died
Oh I don't know what's become
Of a girl who once knew sunshine
What's become of a girl
Who knew sorrow
But was strong
Oh, Mr. King, you were right
All along, Mr. King, you were right
Oh, Mr. King, you were right
I was wrong.

Back again with more... I'm sure I'll get through them all eventually.



Learning to Breathe- Nerina Pallot

Oh this road is long, this road is wide
It thakes more than luck to last the ride-
It takes strength, and it takes courage to survive.
And did someone ever say to you
'There's nothing bound in thought you cannot do'?
Well, I've seen some things but not all of them came true

So I don't want to be the last, I don't want to be the first
Don't want to be alone with my thoughts tomorrow
And I don't want to be afraid, don't want to look away-
I'm learning to breathe.
No I don't want to be the last, I don't want to be the first
I just need a hope and a light to follow.
Like saiors look to stars to find their way home
I'm learning to breathe on my own.

And I know a man who lost his wife
This is the way he chooses to describe his life:
He says, 'If I think too much I find there's just a hole.'
But before she went, she left a son
He says, 'Dad, you're not the only one-
Maybe love is just a requiem for the soul...'

So I don't want to be the last, I don't want to be the first
Don't want to be alone with my thoughts tomorrow
And I don't want to be afraid, don't want to look away-
I'm learning to breathe.
No I don't want to be the last, I don't want to be the first
I just need a hope and a light to follow.
Like saiors look to stars to find their way home
I'm learning to breathe on my own.

Oh, do you still feel small?
Just a speck of life on an ocean wave
Does it pull us all?
Does it pull us all?

So I don't want to be the last, I don't want to be the first
Don't want to be alone with my thoughts tomorrow
And I don't want to be afraid, don't want to look away-
I'm learning to breathe.
No I don't want to be the last, I don't want to be the first
I just need a hope and a light to follow.
Like saiors look to stars to find their way home
I'm learning to breathe on my own.




I have at least 3 more but unfortunately my tea is nearly ready so I don't actually have time to post them right this minute... and I was too dopey to bring the lyrics downstairs with me anyway. Guess I'll just ahve to post them later.

A Sorta Fairytale- Tori Amos

On my way up north
Up on the Ventura
I pulled back the hood
And I was talking to you
And I knew then it would be
A lifelong thing but I didn't
Know that we
We could break a silver lining

And I'm so sad
Like a good book
I can't put this day back-
A sorta fairytale with you

Things you said that day
Up on the 101
The girl had come undone
I tried to downplay it with a
Bet about us
You said that you'd take it
As long as I could
I could not erase it

And I'm so sad
Like a good book
I can't put this day back-
A sorta fairytale with you

And I ride along side
And I rode along side you then
And I rode along side
Till you lost me there in the open road
And I rode along side
Till the honey spread itself so thin
For me to break your bread
For me to take your word
I had to steal it

And I'm so sad
Like a good book
I can't put this day back-
A sorta fairytale with you
I could pick back up whenever I feel

Down New Mexico way
Something about the open road
I knew that he was
Looking for some Indian blood and
Find a little in you
Find a little in me we
May be on this road but
We're just imposters in this country you know
So we go along and we said we'd fake it
Feel better with Oliver Stone
Till I almost smacked him
Seemed right that night and
I don't know what takes hold
Out there in the desert cold
These guys think they must
Try and just get over on us

And I'm so sad
Like a good book
I can't put this day back-
A sorta fairytale with you

And I was riding by
Riding along side for a while
Till you lost me
And I was riding by
Riding along till you lost me
Till you lost me in the rear view
You lost me

Way up north I took my day
All in all it was a pretty nice day and
I put the hood right back where
You could taste heaven perfectly
Feel out the summer breeze
Didn't know when we'd be back and I-
I don't- didn't thin we'd end up like
Like this



Silent All These Years- Tori Amos

Excuse me but can I be you for a while
My dog won't bite if you sit real still
I got the anti-christ yelling at me again
Yeah I can hear that

Been saved again by the garbage truck
I got something to say you know but nothing comes
Yes I know what you think of me you never shut up
Yeah I can hear that

But what if I'm a mermaid
In these jeans of his with her name still on it
Hey but I don't care
'Cause sometimes I said sometimes I hear my voice and it's been
Here silent all these years

So you found a girl who thinks really deep thoughts
What's so amazing about really deep thoughts
Boy you best pray that I bleed real soon
How's that thought for you

My scream got lost in a paper cup
You think there's a heaven where some screams have gone
I got 25 bucks and a cracker do you think it's enough
To get us there

'Cause what if I'm a mermaid
In these jeans of his with her name still on it
Hey but I don't care
'Cause sometimes I said sometimes I hear my voice and it's been
Here silent all these years

Years go by will I still be waiting
For somebody else to understand
Years go by if I'm stripped of my beauty
And the orange clouds raining in my head
Years go by will I choke on my tears
Till finally ther is nothing left
One more casualty
You know we're too easy easy easy

Well I love the way we communicate
Your eyes focus on my funny lip shape
Let's hear what you think of me now but baby don't look up
The sky is fallin

Your mother shows up in a nasty dress
It's your turn now to stand where I stand
Everybody looking at you here take hold of my hand
Yeah I can hear them

But what if I'm a mermaid
In these jeans of yours with her name still on it
Hey but I don't care
'Cause sometimes I said sometimes I hear my voice and it's been
Here silent all these years




I've got a couple more and I actually have the lyrics with me (I was vaguely organised for once!) but once again I don't have time to post them all. Blah...

Patience- Nerina Pallot

Been good, been bad, got worse, got better.
I feel I know myself when I'm looking in the mirror.
Been hurt, been loved- I'm scarred, not bitter.
I am an angel with the knowledge of a sinner.
But what do I do, And how should I be?
When I look at myself, I can only be me...

I need a little patience...

Been hard, been soft, been boeth, been niether
Above it all, I am only a survivor.
Been down, been low, got up, got higher-
We are only human, all just liars...
So I wait for the day when I open my eyes
And I look to myself, but it's no big surprise

I need a little patience...

Well I'm sitting here and sinking and I'm on the 8th floor
And I'm thinking do I jump or should I stay around for more?
And I watch my friends get bigger and get better and get richer
But I'm not bitter, no
Time is ticking ticking ticking ticking ticking on with a vengeance
I want it all
I want it all

I need a little patience...




God- Nerina Pallot

God is good, I never understood
All the darkness in his soul.
And God made man, the only way he can,
But for a heart he left a hole..

And it's killing you
And it's killing me too
Are we failing the truth?

I'm betting on desire, I'm betting on deceit
I'm betting on a moment when everything is sweet
I'm betting on disaster in every living hour.
Would you burn your fingers if you touched God?
Will he let you in if you have or not?

Once my friend, I loved you as a child
Kissed your face before I slept.
Be in my head, and with me when I sleep
In the bloodied tears he wept.

And it's killing you
And it's killing me too
Are we failing the truth?

I'm betting on indifference, I'm betting on belief
I'm thinking of a beauty where everything's complete
I'm betting on a laughter, a very distant star...
Would you burn your fingers if you touched God?
Will he let you in if you have or not?

And it's killing you
And it's killing me too
Are we failing the truth in everything we do?
Are we failing the truth?

I'm betting on desire, I'm betting on deceit
I'm betting on a moment when everything is sweet
I'm thinking of that beauty I love with all my heart
Would you burn your fingers if you touched God?
Will he let you in if you have or not?
Will he let you in?




Black-dove (January)- Tori Amos

She was a january girl
She never let on how insane it was
In that tiny kinda scary house
By the woods
By the woods
By the woods
Black-dove Black-dove
You're not a helicopter
You're not a cop out either
Black-dove Black-dove
You don't need a space ship
They don't know you've already lived
On the other side of the galaxy
She had a january world
So many storms not right somehow
How a lion becomes a mouse
By the woods
But I have to get to Texas
Said I have to get to Texas
And I'll give away my blue blue dress
She has a january girl
She never let on how insane it was
In that tiny kinda scary house
By the woods




Yeah okay so I'm pretty sure Black-dove is up here at least once already but I thought what the heck, I'll put it up again...

:trigger:

This is the song I was originally wanting to put in my signature. I wound up putting the song just after it on the same album, because I couldn't choose just one verse and because it would probably be triggering to those with self harm compulsions.

Avalanche is sullen and too thin
She starves herself to rid herself of sin
And the kick is so divine when she sees bones beneath her skin
And she says:
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C'mon baby can you bleed like me?

Chris is all dressed up and acting coy
Painted like a brand new Christmas toy
He's trying to figure out if he's a girl or he's a boy
He says:
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C'mon baby can you bleed like me?

Doodle takes dad's scissors to her skin
And when she does relief comes setting in
While she hides the scars she's making underneath her pretty clothes
She sings:
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C'mon baby can you bleed like me?

Therapy is Speedie's brand new drug
Dancing with the devil's past has never been too fun
It's better off than trying to take a bullet from a gun
And she cries:
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C'mon baby can you bleed like me?

JT gets all fucked up in some karaoke bar
After two drinks he's a loser after three drinks he's a star
Getting all nostalgic as he sings "I Will Survive"
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C'mon baby can you bleed like me?
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C'mon baby can you bleed like me?

You should see my scars
You should see my scars
You should see my scars
You should see my scars
Try to comprehend that which you'll never comprehend
Try to comprehend that which you'll never comprehend
Just try to comprehend that which you'll never comprehend
Try to comprehend that which you'll never comprehend
You should see my scars
You should see my scars
