-----Im posting them all in same post, as to not take up so much room---

I'LL STAY WITH YOU, Beth Hart

Close your eyes and I'll hold you here
It's all right if you're feelin' scared
It's just the sound of your aching heart
You've hurt for so long inside the dark
Now you can cry for the world out there
Come inside and I'll kiss your tears
It's still the sound tearing you apart
Loving out loud with only half a heart

I'll stay with you
I'll stay with you
I won't leave you alone
I'll stay with you yes I want to

Make your pain my own
And if you need me all night or until I grow old
No you don't have to ask me to
I'm gonna take good care of you
Yes I'm gonna stay with you
I'll be right at your fingertips
Hold on tight and we'll get through this
Angels are calling from all around
Lifting what's broken comforting what is bound
Now you can rest in your time of need
I am here when it's hard to breathe
If you can't remember what is good anymore
I will surrender and kick down heaven's door

Im not religious, and i didn't know that lifehouse lyrics were at first, but i still find them to say so much sometimes, sometimes they explain exactly how i feel, i also like their general sound.


SOMEBODY'S ELSES SONG, Lifehouse, (ive edited the way format of the lyrics, to make more sense)

can't change this feeling I'm way out of touch
can't change this meaning it means too much
never been this lonely never felt so good
can't be the only one misunderstood
I remind myself of somebody else feeling like I'm chasing like I'm facing myself alone
I've got somebody else's thoughts in my head I want some of my own
I want some of my own I want some of my own
can you see me up here
would you bring me back down cause I've been living to see my fears as they fall to the ground
I remind myself of somebody else
feeling like I'm chasing like I'm facing myself alone
I've got somebody else's thoughts in my head
I want some of my own I want some of my own I want some of my own
am I hiding behind my doubts are they hiding behind me closer to finding out it doesn't mean anything
I remind myself of somebody else now


BREATHING, Lifehouse  (edit lyrics)

I'm finding my way back to sanity again though I don't really know what I am gonna do when I get there
take a breath and hold on tight spin around one more time and gracefully fall back in the arms of grace I am hanging on every word you say and even if you don't want to speak tonight that's alright, alright with me 'cause I want nothing more than to sit outside Heaven's door and listen to you breathing is where I want to be
I am looking past the shadows of my mind into the truth and I'm trying to identify the voices in my head , which one's you let me feel one more time what it feels like to feel and break these calluses off me one more time
I don't want a thing from you
bet you're tired of me waiting for the straps to fall off your table to the ground
I just want to be here now


SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN, Lifehouse

I can't be losing sleep over this, no, I can't
and I cannot stop pacing
give me a few hours and I'll have this all sorted out
if my mind would just stop racing
I cannot stand still
I cannot be this unsturdy
this cannot be happening
this is over my head but underneath my feet
because by tomorrow morning I'll have this thing beat
and everything will be back to the way it was
I wish that it was just that easy
I am waiting for tonight then waiting for tomorrow
and I am somewhere in between
what is real and just a dream
would you catch me if I fall out of what I fell in
don't be surprised if I collapse down at your feet again
I don't want to run away from this
I know that I just don't need this

I haven't even heard some of these songs, just like the words

LA SONG
By: BETH HART
From the CD: SCREAMIN FOR MY SUPPER

She hangs around the boulevard
She's a local girl with local scars
She got home late
She drank so hard the bottle ached
& she tried
but nothin's clear in a bar full a flies
So she takes
She understands when she gives it away
She says
Man I gotta get outta this town
Man I gotta get outta this pain
Man I gotta get outta this town
Outta this town & out of L.A.
She's gotta gun
She got a gun she calls the lucky one
She left a note right by the phone
Don't leave a message 'cause this ain't no home
& she cried
She cried so long her tears ran dry
Then she laughed
'Cause she knew she was never comin' back
She said
Man I'm gonna get outta this town
Man I'm gonna get outta this pain
Man I'm gonna get outta this town
Outta this town & out of L.A.
It's all she loves It's all she hates It's all too much for her
to take she can't be sure just where it ends or where
the good life begins
So she took a train
to a little old town without a name
She met a man he took her in
but fed her all the same bullshit again
'Cause he lied
he lied like a salesman sellin' flies
So she screamed
it's a different place
but the same old thang
It's all I love It's all I hate It's all too much for me to take
I can't be sure where it begins or if the good life lies within
So she said
Man I gotta get out of this town
Yeah now I gotta get back on that train
Man I gotta get out of this town
I'm outta my pain
So I'm goin' back to L.A.


SKIN
By: BETH HART
From the CD: SCREAMIN FOR MY SUPPER

She combs her hair & cleans her face
Closes the door & kneels to pray
It don't matter that she's alone
beast or dragons she's going home
If I lay me down
bow my head unto the ground
Would you heal my skin
& these blisters within My skin
She found today
So hard to say
I sweat the sheets
too tired to play
& it don't matter
cause I'm still alive
Beast or Dragons
won't make me hide
another way
I just cant find the words to say
Cold where I lay
it's cold where I lay
bones cracked to clay
a killer's in the way
hot is my shame
Fire pulls my veins
For never is my name
Forever in my shame
holy come heal me
solely, delivery delivery

This is probably my favourite one.
Deliver Me by Sarah Brightman


Deliver me, out of my sadness
Deliver me, from all of the madness
Deliver me, courage to guide me
Deliver me, strength from inside me

All of my life I've been in hiding
Wishing there was someone just like you
Now that you're here, now that I've found you
I know that you're the one to pull me through

Deliver me, loving and caring
Deliver me, giving and sharing
Deliver me, the cross that I'm bearing

All of my life I was in hiding
Wishing there was someone just like you
Now that you're here, now that I've found you
I know that you're the one to pull me through

Deliver me
Deliver me
Oh deliver me

All of my life I was in hiding
Wishing there was someone just like you
Now that you're here, now that I've found you
I know that you're the one to pull me through

Deliver me
Oh deliver me
Won't you deliver me

Cara

»wash away those years«

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
[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
[remember you're not alone]

well if you just close you eyes
and just imagine everything's alright
but do not hide your tears
'cause they were sent to wash away those years

they were sent to wash away those years
[maybe we will wash away those years]

for we have crossed many oceans
and we labor in between
in life there are many quotients
and i hope i find the mean

well if you just close you eyes
and just imagine everything's alright
but do not hide your tears
'cause they were sent to wash away those years

i hope that you can wash away those years.

Hey Guys,

My ultimate song is A voice within by Christina Aguilera

Young girl, don't cry
I'll be right here when your world starts to fall
Young girl, it's all right
Your tears will dry, you'll soon be free to fly

When you're safe inside your room you tend to dream
Of a place where nothing's harder than it seems
No one ever wants or bothers to explain
Of the heartache life can bring and what it means

When there's no one else
Look inside yourself
Like your oldest friend
Just trust the voice within
Then you'll find the strength
That will guide your way
If you will learn to begin
To trust the voice within

Young girl, don't hide
You'll never change if you just run away
Young girl, just hold tight
And soon you're gonna see your brighter day

Now in a world where innocence is quickly claimed
It's so hard to stand your ground when you're so afraid
No one reaches out a hand for you to hold
When you're lost outside look inside to your soul

When there's no one else
Look inside yourself
Like your oldest friend
Just trust the voice within
Then you'll find the strength
That will guide your way
If you will learn to begin
To trust the voice within

Yeah...
Life is a journey
It can take you anywhere you choose to go
As long as you're learning
You'll find all you'll ever need to know

You'll make it
You'll make it
Just don't go forsaking yourself
No one can stop you
You know that I'm talking to you

When there's no one else
Look inside yourself
Like your oldest friend
Just trust the voice within
Then you'll find the strength
That will guide your way
If you will learn to begin
To trust the voice within

Young girl don't cry
I'll be right here when your world starts to fall

Alright, I have another one (well actually I have like ten more but I'll just post ome for now ;) ) Might trigger?

 Rest In Pieces - Saliva

Look at me my depth percption must be off again
Cuz this hurts deeper then I thought it did
It has not healed with time
It just shot down my spine
You look so beautiful tonight
Reminds me how you laid us down
And gently smiled before you destroyed my life

Would you find it in your heart?
To make this go away
And let me rest in pieces
Would you find it in your heart?
To make this go away and let me rest in pieces
Would you find it in your heart?
To make it go away
And let me rest in pieces

Look at me, my depth perception must be off again
You got much closer than I thought you did
I'm in your reach
You held me in your hands
But could you find it in your heart?
To make this go away  
And let me rest in pieces
Would you find it in your heart?
To make it go away
And let me rest in...

Stuck on this one.

"Bigger Than My Body" by John Mayer

This is a call to the colorblind
This is an IOU
Stranded behind a horizon line
Try to be something true

Yes, I'm grounded
Got my wings clipped
I'm surrounded by
All this pavement
Guess I'll circle
While I'm waiting
For my fuse to dry

Chorus:
Someday I'll fly
Someday I'll soar
Someday I'll be
Something much more
Cause I'm bigger than my body
Gives me credit for


Why is it not the time?
What is there more to learn?
I've shed this skin I've been tripping in
And I've never quite returned

Yes, I'm grounded
Got my wings clipped
I'm surrounded by
All this pavement
Guess I'll circle
While I'm waiting
For my fuse to dry

Chorus

Cause I'm bigger than my body now

Maybe I'll tangle in the power lines
And it might be over in a second's time
But I'll gladly go down in a flame
If the flame's what it takes to remember my name
To remember my name, oh

Yes, I'm grounded
Got my wings clipped
I'm surrounded by
All this pavement
Guess I'll circle
While I'm waiting
For my fuse to dry

Chorus

Cause I'm bigger than my body
Bigger than my body
Bigger than my body now

hahahahahaha.  Lynn, it's freakish really.

Here's a song that isn't 'healing' per se, but it expresses thanks and speaks to how important unconditional love and support are.

It's "Push" off of Sarah McLachlan's new album.  Redline heard it and sent the lyrics to me, b/c I loooooooove Sarah, so if you all get addicted to this song, it's all her fault!  :P

Every time I look at you the world just melts away
All my troubles all my fears dissolve in your affections
You've seen me at my weakest but you take me as I am
And when I fall you offer me a softer place to land

Chorus
You stay the course you hold the line you keep it all together
You're the one true thing I know I can believe in
You're all the things that I desire you save me you complete me
You're the one true thing I know I can believe

I get mad so easy but you give me room to breathe
No matter what I say or do 'cause you're too good to fight about it
Even when I have to push just to see how far youll go
You wont stoop down to battle but you never turn to go

Chorus

There are times I can't decide when I can't tell up from down
You make me feel less crazy when otherwise Id drown
But you pick me up & brush me off and tell me I'm OK
sometimes thats just what we need to get us through the day

Chorus

I like the lyrics, I don't overly like the format they are performed in (except for Numb): Linkin Park

Somewhere I Belong

When this began
I had nothing to say
And I'd get lost in the nothingness inside of me
I was confused
And I let it all out to find/That I'm
Not the only person with these things in mind
Inside of me
But all the vacancy the words revealed
Is the only real thing that I've got left to feel
Nothing to lose
Just stuck/Hollow and alone
And the fault is my own
And the fault is my own

I want to heal
I want to feel
What I thought was never real
I want to let go of the pain I've held so long
[Erase all the pain 'til it's gone]It's gone]
I want to heal
I want to feel
Like I'm close to something real
I want to find something I've wanted all along
Somewhere I Belong

And I've got nothing to say
I can't believe I didn't fall right down on my face
I was confused
Looking everywhere/Only to fin that it's
Not the way I had imagined it all in my mind
So what am I
What do I have but negativity
'Cause I can't justify the
Way everyone is looking at me
Nothing to lose
Nothing to gain/Hollow and alone
And the fault is my own
The fault is my own

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 'til I break away from me
And I will break away
I'll find myself today

I want to heal
I want to feel like I'm
Somewhere I belong



Easier to Run

It's easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It's so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone

Something has been taken
From deep inside of me
A secret I've kept locked away
No one can ever see
Wounds so deep they never show
They never go away
Like moving pictures in my head
For years and years they've played

If I could change I would
Take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could
Stand up and take the blame I would
If I could take all the shame to the grave I
Would

Sometimes I remember
The darkness of my past
Bringing back these memories
I wish I didn't have
Sometimes I think of letting go
And never looking back
And never moving forward so
There would never be a past

Just washing it aside
All of the helplessness inside
Pretending I don't feel misplaced
Is so much simpler than change

It's easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It's so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone



And last but not least ;)

Breaking The Habit

Memories consume
Like opening the wound
I'm picking me apart again
You all assume
I'm safe here in my room
[Unless I try to start again]

I don't want to be the one
The battles always choose
Cause inside I realize
That i'm the one confused

I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
I don't know why I instigate
And say what I don't mean
I don't know how I got this way
I know it's not alright
So I'm breaking the habit
Tonight

Clutching my cure
I tightly lock the door
I try to catch my breath again
I hurt much more
Than anytime before
I had no options left again

I'll paint it on the walls
'Cause i'm the one at fault
I'll never fight again
And this is how it ends

I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
But now I have some clarity
To show you what I mean
I don't know how I got this way
I'll never be alright
So I'm breaking the habit
Breaking the Habit
Tonight

THis one isn't as healing as it is cathartic...well, i suppose that's close enough to the same thing for me. the first time i heard it, i burst into tears at the raw emotion in her voice as she sang...like she was on the verge of tears herself. very powerful. currently on repeat in my player at home and at work!

My Immortal
Evanescence

I'm so tired of being here,
Supressed by all my childish fears,
and if you have to leave,
I wish that you would just leave,
Cause your presence still lingers here,
and it won't leave me alone,

These wounds won't seem to heal,
This pain is just too real,
There's just too much that time cannot erase,

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears,
When you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears,
and I held your hand through all of these years,
But you still...have...all of me,

You used to captivate me,
by your resignating mind,
now i'm bound by the life you left behind,
Your face it haunts,
my once pleasant dreams,
your voice it chased away,
all the sanity in me,

These wounds won't seem to heal,
this pain is just to real,
there's just too much that time cannot erase,

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears,
when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears,
and I held your hand through all of these years,
but you still...have...all of me

I've tried so hard to tell myself that your gone,
but though you're still with me,
I've been alone all along,

When you cried i'd wipe away all of your tears,
when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears,
and I held your hand through all of these years,
but you still...have...all of me

This is a fun song - I was listening to it in the car today and was like, "Huh...insomnia. This song seems to be about me." :)

Barenaked Ladies
"Who Needs Sleep?"

Now I lay me down not to sleep
I just get tangled in the sheets
I swim in sweat three inches deep
I just lay back and claim defeat

Chapter read and lesson learned
I turned the lights off while she burned
So while she's three hundred degrees
I throw the sheets off and I freeze

Lids down, I count sheep
I count heartbeats
The only thing that counts is
that I won't sleep
I countdown, I look around

Who needs sleep?
well you're never gonna get it
Who needs sleep?
tell me what's that for
Who needs sleep?
be happy with what you're getting
There's a guy who's been awake
since the Second World War

My hands are locked up tight in fists
My mind is racing, filled with lists
of things to do and things I've done
Another sleepless night's begun

Lids down, I count sheep
I count heartbeats
The only thing that counts is
that I won't sleep
I countdown, I look around

Who needs sleep?
well you're never gonna get it
Who needs sleep?
tell me what's that for
Who needs sleep?
be happy with what you're getting
There's a guy who's been awake
since the Second World War

[repeat]

There's so much joy in life,
so many pleasures all around
But the pleasure of insomnia
is one I've never found
With all life has to offer,
there's so much to be enjoyed
But the pleasures of insomnia
are ones I can't avoid

Lids down, I count sheep
I count heartbeats
The only thing that counts is
that I won't sleep
I countdown, I look around

Hala Hala Hala

Who needs sleep?
well you're never gonna get it
Who needs sleep?
tell me what's that for
Who needs sleep?
be happy with what you're getting
There's a guy who's been awake
since the Second World War

This song serves as a kick up the arse for me when I'm feeling down. I had thought he was right, but know what? Everyone is better than he is. This song reminds me of that :)

Moist
Better Than You

I've sold out every memory I have borrowed
I had bought from you
These pictures run like water to dilute me
lay me over you
and I thought that this would be so right

and everyone and everyone
is better than you
and everyone and everyone


I've felt each slow perversion fosters
dying killed the truth in me
gone quietly gone completely cold reminder what
you tried to be
and I knew that this would be so right

and everyone and everyone
is better than you
and everyone and everyone
and everyone and everyone

and it's hard and it's hated
and it's hard
and if so and if so

and everyone and everyone
is better than you
and everyone and everyone
and everyone and everyone
is better than you
better than you.....etc.

and if so and if so.....

Alex and Caitlin,

Thankyou so much for those lyrics, darlings.

I'm so glad I know what they mean - I think it's wonderful. But you know, I never needed to understand the words to know that Edith was singing about acceptance of all life's joys and sorrows - it emerges in that raw and wonderful voice.

No matter how shitty I feel, I only have to hear that first long, drawn out "Noooooon" to smile again :)
