hello darkness my old friend, by Simon and Garfunkel

Hello darkness, my old friend, I've come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping, Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain,
Still remains, within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone, Narrow streets of cobblestone,
'neath the halo of a street lamp, I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night, and touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw, Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking, People hearing without listening,
People writing songs, that voices never share.
And no one dared, Disturb the sound of silence.

"Fools" said I, "You do not know, Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you, Take my arms that I might reach you."
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
And echoed, In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed, To the neon god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning, In the words that it was forming.
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls." and whisper'd in the sounds of silence.

"Oh, no, You never let go! Through the calm and through the storm. Oh no You never let go. Lord you never let go of me." "I will rise on eagles wings..." "You lifted me up, You lifted me up, and set me dancing, dancing..." "There's a light at the end of the tunnel for you, for you..." and more...

So the other day, I was sitting in my friends car in front of my apartment. It had been a pretty rough day, and something had triggered me and I just broke down. The friend I was with is the only one that I have ever told about my abuse. One of the biggest things that I struggle with is an intense hatred of myself, especially my physical appearance. I was expressing these feelings to my friend, and she was listening and just sitting with me and being supportive as she has been thru this whole thing. We had sort of stopped talking and were just sitting in the car, the radio was on quietly in the background. A song came on that I had never heard before, and the timing was just amazing. We listened to the whole song in silence, and as soon as it stopped we just both started crying together. The song is called Beautiful its by MercyMe, they are a Christian group. Its one of my favorite songs, so I wanted to share it with you all. Here are the lyrics:

Days will come when you don't have the strength
When all you hear is you're not worth anything
Wondering if you ever could be loved
And if they truly saw your heart, they'd see too much

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are his
You're beautiful

Praying that you have the heart to fight
Cause you are more than what is hurting you tonight
For all the lies you've held inside so long
They are nothing in the shadow of the cross

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are his
You're beautiful.

Before you ever took a breath
Long before the world began
Of all the wonders He possessed
There was one more precious
Of all the earth and skies above
You're the one He madly loves enough to die

You're beautiful
You're beautiful in His eyes
You're beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are his
You're beautiful

You're beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are his

No matter my mood or what's on my mind, this song always manages to make me giddy.


It's Alright by 311


Stay with me
Here with me
Right in this instant
Not in the distance
When your head is off in future time
That's the place when things get out of line
Taking in this moment
Your time is so well spent

It's alright
Wherever you are right now
I tell you it's alright
That's where you're supposed to be now

Stay with me
Here with me
Right in this instant
Not in the distance
Standing at a crossroads, I was at a loss those
Temporary moments pleasures that are stolen
Here in the present
Your time is so well spent

It's alright
Wherever you are right now
I tell you it's alright
That's where you're supposed to be now
That's where you're supposed to be now

A song, one song, could end a war, could end the war
A song, one song, could end a war, could end the war
(Around we go, around we go)
A song, one song, could end a war, could end the war
(Around we go, around we go)

It's alright
Wherever you are right now
I tell you it's alright
That's where you're supposed to be now
It's alright
Wherever you are right now
I tell you it's alright
That's where you're supposed to be now
That's where you're supposed to be now

one of my favorite songs is youv'e got a friend by carole king

When you're down and troubled
And you need some loving care
And nothin', nnothin' is goin' right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come runnin' to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend

If the sky above you
Grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together
And call my name out loud
Soon you'll hear me knockin' at your door

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come runnin', runnin, yeah, yeah,
to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yes I will

Now ain't it good to know
that you've got a friend
When people can be so cold
They'll hurt you, yes, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them
Oh, but don't you let them.

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come runnin, runnin', yeah, yeah, yeah
to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yes I will
You've got a friend,
you've got a friend,
ain't it good to know,
you've got a friend,
ain't it good to know,
ain't it good to know,
ain't it good to know,
you've got a friend,
oh yeah now, you've got a friend,
yeah baby, you've got a friend,
oh yeah, you've got a friend.

Mine is healing begins by tenth avenue north, Trigger warning if you go to the link I prive due to the pictures- the video was made specifically for sexual abuse.
Healing begins- pictures may trigger

The lyrics are

So you thought you had to keep this up
All the work that you do
So we think that you're good
And you can't believe it's not enough
All the walls you built up
Are just glass on the outside

So let 'em fall down
There's freedom waiting in the sound
When you let your walls fall to the ground
We're here now

This is where the healing begins, oh
This is where the healing starts
When you come to where you're broken within
The light meets the dark
The light meets the dark

Afraid to let your secrets out
Everything that you hide
Can come crashing through the door now
But too scared to face all your fear
So you hide but you find
That the shame won't disappear
[From: http://www.elyrics.n...ns-lyrics.html]

So let it fall down
There's freedom waiting in the sound
When you let your walls fall to the ground
We're here now
We're here now, oh

This is where the healing begins, oh
This is where the healing starts
When you come to where you're broken within
The light meets the dark
The light meets the dark

Sparks will fly as grace collides
With the dark inside of us
So please don't fight
This coming light
Let this blood come cover us
His blood can cover us

This is where the healing begins, oh
This is where the healing starts
When you come to where you're broken within
The light meets the dark
The light meets the dark

Love the Fin Perfect song by Pink- good choice

This is a song by Shaina Noll, from the album "Songs for the Inner Child." I SERIOUSLY recommend this album for anyone dealing with CSA, ir any other form of childhood abuse:

"How could anyone ever tell you
you were anything less than beautiful?
How could anyone ever tell you
you were less than whole?
How could anyone fail to notice
that your loving is a miracle.
How deeply you're connected to my soul."

A great song for connecting with your Inner Child!

I want to share this song with you, this song has helped me feel sane many a times when I've had a really low day, it sort of lifts me back up and makes me realise that even though bad things have happened to me, it doesn't make me any less of a person then anyone else.. So I want to share with you all and to say that you all too are STARS!!!!

James - She's A Star

Whenever she's feeling empty
Whenever she's feeling insecure
Whenever her face is frozen
Unable to fake it anymore
Her shadow is always with her
Her shadow will always keep her small
So frightened that he wont love her
She builds up a wall

Oh no, she knows where to hide in the dark
Oh no, she's nowhere to hide in the dark

She's a star

She's been in disguise forever
She's tried to disguise her stellar views
Much brighter than all this static
Now she's coming through

Oh no, she knows where to hide in the dark
Oh no, she's nowhere to hide in the dark

She's a star

Don't tell her to turn down,
Put on your shades if you can't see,
Don't tell her to turn down,
Turn up the flame.
She's a star

It's a long road
It's a great cause
It's a long road
Its a good call
You got it,
You got it,

SHE'S A STAR

This is another song I like as the lyrics are beautiful and well connected.

She walks to school with the lunch she packed
Nobody knows what she's holding back
Wearing the same dress she wore yesterday
She hides the bruises with the linen and lace, oh

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 a 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 light
{ From: http://www.elyrics.n...gel-lyrics.html }
A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate
When morning comes it will be too late

Through the wind and the rain she stands hard as a 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 a 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

Matthew West Broken Girl
My link

Look what he's done to you
It isn't fair
Your light was bright and new
But he didn't care
He took the heart of a little girl
And made it grow up too fast

Now words like "innocence"
Don't mean a thing
You hear the music play
But you can't sing
Those pictures in your mind
Keep you locked up inside your past

This is a song for the broken girl
The one pushed aside by the cold, cold world
You are
Hear me when I say
You're not the worthless they made you feel
There is a Love they can never steal away
And you don't have to stay the broken girl

Those damaged goods you see
In your reflection
Love sees them differently
Love sees perfection
A beautiful display

Of healing on the way tonight
Tonight

This is a song for the broken girl
The one pushed aside by the cold, cold world
You are
Hear me when I say
You're not the worthless they made you feel
There is a Love they can never steal away
And you don't have to stay the broken girl

Let your tears touch to the ground
Lay your shattered pieces down
And be amazed by how Grace can take a broken girl
And put her back together again

This is a song for the broken girl
The one pushed aside by the cold, cold world
You are
Hear me when I say
You're not the worthless they made you feel
There is a Love they can never steal away
And you don't have to stay the broken girl
You don't have to stay the broken girl

Tenth Avenue North
You Are More

There's a girl in the corner
With tear stains on her eyes
From the places she's wandered
And the shame she can't hide

She says, "How did I get here?
I'm not who I once was.
And I'm crippled by the fear
That I've fallen too far to love"

But don't you know who you are,
What's been done for you?
Yeah don't you know who you are?

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

Well she tries to believe it
That she's been given new life
But she can't shake the feeling
That it's not true tonight

She knows all the answers
And she's rehearsed all the lines
And so she'll try to do better
But then she's too weak to try

But don't you know who you are?

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

'Cause this is not about what you've done,
But what's been done for you.
This is not about where you've been,
But where your brokenness brings you to

This is not about what you feel,
But what He felt to forgive you,
And what He felt to make you loved.

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

You've been remade
You've been remade.
You've been remade.
You've been remade.

Honest

by Audrey Assad

I'm not afraid to be honest with You today
The only thing I'm sure of is You
I never knew about grace before You called my name
Before You touched my face with Your hand

Even when I'm falling, confused, and I'm frightened
and my faith is afraid to be real

You, You know me; help me to want You, help me to want You
You, You know me; help me to love You, help me to love You

I'm not alone in this fight, but I still want to run
You are the rock I say I stand on
I never knew about love before Your healing touch
You always hold that open door

Even when I'm angry, I'm hurt, and I'm broken,
won't You help me to fall on my knees?

You, You know me; help me to want You, help me to want You
You, You know me; help me to love You, help me to love You

So during the past three months, I have charged my father with my sexual abuse, my family always new about it...and I debated with myself about this decision for my entire adult life, about how I was supposed to feel about the abuse... and him...and my mother... now they have turned their backs on me...my mother has told me I will be going to hell because he is a better man now...her husband...lol..and I need to leave it alone!!...Well I get motivated every morning and night..with this blasting in my car during my commute to work...or a court appearance...my life plays like a movie when I hear this...and I usually sing at the top of my lungs on the way home...and at times even cry...which is a very healing ecperience for me....so here it is...

Dixie Chicks
Not Ready To Make Nice


Forgive sounds good...
Forget..Im not sure I could
They say time heals everything...But I'm Still Waiting

I'm through, with doubt.
Theres nothing left for me, to figure out
I've paid a price, And I'll keep Paying

I'm not ready to make nice,
I'm not ready to back down
I'm still mad as hell, and I don't have time to go round and round and round
It's to late to make it right.
I probably wouldn't if I could
'Cause I'm mad as hell, Can't bring myself to do what it is you think I should!

I know, you say,...
"Can't you just get over it?"
It turned, my whole world around..
And I kinda like it!


I made my bed, and I sleeep like a baby,
With no regrets and I don't mind sayin'

It's a Sad SAD story when a mother will teach her
daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger!
And how in the hell can the world can the words I said...
send somebody so over the edge?
That they'd write me a letter,
sayin that I better SHUT-UP AND SIT (it say sing..lol) or my life with be OVER!!!!

I'm not ready to make nice,
I'm not ready to back down
I'm still mad as hell, and I don't have time to go round and round and round
It's to late to make it right.
I probably wouldn't if I could
'Cause I'm mad as hell, Can't bring myself to do what it is you think I should!
What it is you think I should.....

Forgive....Sounds good....
Forget....I'm not sure I could....
They say...Time heals everything....
I'm still waiting
