I am the Wind

Just like the wind,
I've always been
Drifting high up in the sky that never ends
Through thick and thin,
I always win
'Cause I would fight both life and death to save a friend

I face my destiny every day I live
And the best in me is all I have to give

Just like the sun (Just like the sun)
When my day's done
Sometimes I don't like the person I've become
Is the enemy within a thousand men?
Should I walk the path if my world's so dead ahead?

Is someone testing me every day I live?
Well, the best in me is all I have to give

I can pretend (I can pretend)
I am the wind (I am the wind)
And I don't know if I will pass this way again
All things must end
Goodbye, my friend
Think of me when you see the sun or feel the wind

I am the wind,
I am the sun
And one day we'll all be one

I am the wind,
I am the sun
And one day we'll all be one

*INSTRUMENTAL SOLO*

I am the wind,
I am the sun
And one day we'll all be one

I am the wind,
I am the sun
One day we'll all be one

(Repeat to end)

Theres more to me than you by Jessica Andrews

I've spent years
And all of this time
Thinkin I was better off
Cause you were mine
You always said it was your way or the highway

So im shiftin my life into drive
I'm getting out kissing the past goodbye
Like Toby said
"How do you like me now?"

This conversation has run dry
And I keep tellin myself
Oooh oooh oooh theres more to me than you
Oooh oooh dont underestimate what i can do
Well im alright
It's okay
I know I'll make it through
Cause there's more to me than you

I'm not sayin I'm batterd and bruised
But I might as well be with the words you use
I believe in myself
That makes me stronger
Things change and so have I
I'm gonna make hay while the sun still shines
you can clip my wings but I'm still gonna fly
I'm on my own
I'm on my way

And I keep tellin myself
Oooh oooh oooh theres more to me than you
Oooh oooh dont underestimate what i can do
Well im alright
It's okay
I know I'll make it through
Cause there's more to me than you

There's always somethin that meant more to you than me
And I'm just sorry it's taken this for you to see

Oooh oooh oooh theres more to me than you
Well I'm alright
It's okay
I know I'll make it through
Cause there's more to me than you

Oooh oooh oooh theres more to me than you
Oooh oooh oooh theres more to me than you

Cause there's more to me than you

okay, this is one by perfect circle... i LOVE Tool... but somehow perfect circle seems a little more healing and survivor oriented:

Gravity
Lost again
Broken and weary
Unable to find my way
Tail in hand
Dizzy and clearly unable to
Just let this go

I am surrendering to the gravity and the unknown
Catch me heal me lift me back up to the sun
I choose to live

I fell again
Like a baby unable to stand on my own
Tail in hand
Dizzy and clearly unable to just let this go
High and surrendering to the gravity and the unknown
Catch me heal me lift me back up to the sun
I choose to live, I choose to live, I choose to live

Catch me heal me lift me back up to the sun
Help me survive the bottom

Calm these hands before they
Snare another pill and
Drive another nail down another
Meaty hole please release me

I am surrendering to the gravity and the unknown
Catch me heal me lift me back up to the sun
I choose to live, I choose to live

and another from perfect circle... this one gave me chills the first time i heard it... its all about the criminals who think they've moved past these crimes... like they can forgive themselves without any effort, contrition or repentance:


The Noose
So glad to see you well
Overcome and completely silent now
Without his help
You cast your demons out
And not to pull your halo down
Around your neck and tug you off your cloud
But I'm more than just a little curious
How you're planning to go about
Making your amends to the dead
To the dead

Recall the deeds as if
They're all someone else's
Atrocious stories
Now you stand reborn before us all
So glad to see you well

And not to pull your halo down
Around your neck and tug you to the ground
But I'm more than just a little curious
How you're planning to go about
Making your amends to the dead
To the dead

With your halo slipping down
Your halo slipping
Your halo slipping down
Your halo slipping down
Your halo slipping down [repeated]

Your halo slipping down to choke you now

and i'm just posting songs like crazy this morning... i really don't have the energy to do anything more serious  :laugh: :

this is a VERY OLD favorite by a little group called WEEN (they ROCK!!!):

Little Birdy

Oh little birdy, oh little birdy

I saw the little birdy sing
He sang with glee and everything
He sang for spring and sang for me
And everything was so happy

I don't know why I want to fly
Try to sigh, try to fly, made a tie
And then it tried to get me down
I want to buy make me fly
Get me high, so I can try
And then I try
The little birdy start to cry so happy
Little birdy was so happy
Little birdy was so happy

Can I touch your birdy wing?
And fly and hop and everything
Can the sun reach down on us
And through the heavens only we would sing

I want the birdy make me laugh
See the birdy make me laugh
Take a little birdy bath
I don't know why he got me high
I don't know why, I don't know why
It cannot die, it sang too high
And all the birds on the wing sang so together

[repeat all]

So together, so together

somebody stop me †:blush: ... okay, this one is from the Stigmata soundtrack by the ever so lovely Bjork:

Artist: Bjork Lyrics
Song: All Is Full of Love Lyrics

you'll be given love
you'll be taken care of
you'll be given love
you have to trust it

maybe not from the sources
you have poured yours
maybe not from the directions
you are staring at

trust your head around
it's all around you
all is full of love
all around you

all is full of love
you just aint receiving
all is full of love
your phone is off the hook
all is full of love
your doors are all shut
all is full of love!

all is full of love
all is full of love
all is full of love
all is full of love
all is full of love

another Bjork song that i used to be obsessed with when i was in a much worse place than i am now:

Play Dead

darling stop confusing me
with your wishful thinking
hopeful embraces
don't you understand?
i have to go through this
i belong to here where
no-one cares and no-one loves
no light no air to live in
a place called hate
the city of fear

i play dead
it stops the hurting
i play dead
and hurting stops

it's sometimes just like sleeping
curling up inside my private tortures
i nestle into pain
hug suffering
caress every ache

i play dead
it stops the hurting

and finaly an oh-so accurate description of:

Human Behavior:

If you ever get close to a human
and human behaviour
be ready to get confused

there's definitely no logic
to human behaviour
but yet so irresistible

there is no map
to human behaviour

they're terribly moody
then all of a sudden turn happy
but, oh, to get involved in the exchange
of human emotions is ever so satisfying

there's no map and
a compass
wouldn't help at all

human behaviour

i promise i'll stop now, i just wouldn't feel right if i didn't add some Ani to the mix, LOL!:

Swan Dive:

I'm cradling the softest, warmest part of you in my hands
Feels like a little baby bird
Fallen from the nest
I think that your body is something I understand
I think that I'm happy
I think that I'm blessed

But I've had a lack of inhibition
I've had a loss of perspective
I've had a little bit to drink
And it's making me think
That I can jump ship and swim
That the ocean will hold me
That there's got to be more
Than this boat I'm in

They can call me crazy if I fail
All the chance that I need is one - in - a - million,
And they can call me brilliant if I succeed
Gravity is nothing to me
I'm moving at the speed of sound
I'm just gonna to get my feet wet until I drown

I teeter between tired
And really, really tired
I'm wiped and I'm wired
But I guess that's just as well
Cuz I've built my own empire
Out of car tires and chicken wire
And now I'm queen of my own compost heap
And I'm getting used to the smell

I've had a lack of information
I've had a little revelation
I'm climbing up on the railing
Trying not to look down
I'm going to do my best swan dive
In the shark - infested waters
I'm gonna pull out my tampon
And start splashing around

Cuz I don't care if they eat me alive
I've got better things to do than survive
I've got the memory of your warm skin in my hands
And I've got a vision of blue sky and dry land

I'm cradling the hardest, heaviest part of me in my hands
The ship is pitching and heaving
Our limbs are bobbing and weaving
I think this is something I understand
I just need a couple vaccinations
For my far - away vacation
I'm going to go ahead and go boldly
Cuz a little bird told me
That jumping is easy
That falling is fun
Right up until you hit the sidewalk
Shivering stunned

They can call me crazy if I fail
All the chance that I need is one - in - a - million
And they can call me brilliant if I succeed
Gravity is nothing to me
I'm moving at the speed of sound
I'm just gonna get my feet wet untill I drown

Speaking of Ani, I've always loved that part of 'Not A Pretty Girl' that goes:

I am not an angry girl
But it seems like
I've got everyone fooled.
Everytime I say something they find hard to hear
They chalk it up to my anger
And never to their own fear.
Imagine you're a girl
Just tryin' to finally come clean
Knowing full well they prefer you dirty and smiling.


The first time I heard that, I had to keep going back to listen to it again and again...so powerful.

"someday" by Nickelback

Someday

How the hell'd we wind up like this
And why weren't we able
To see the signs that we missed
And try to turn the tables
I wish you'd unclench your fists
And unpack your suitcase
Lately there's been too much of this
But don't think it's too late

Nothing's wrong
Just as long as you know that someday I will
Someday, somehow
I''m gonna make it alright
But not right now
I know you're wondering when
You're the only one who knows that
Someday somehow
I'm gonna make it alright
But not right now
I know you're wondering when

Well I'd hope that since we're here anyway
That we could end up saying
Things we've always needed to say
So we could end up staying
Now the story's played out like this
Just like a paperback novel
Let's rewrite an ending that fits
Instead of a Hollywood horror

Nothing's wrong
Just as long as you know that someday I will
Someday, somehow
I''m gonna make it alright
But not right now
I know you're wondering when
You're the only one who knows that
Someday somehow
I'm gonna make it alright
But not right now
I know you're wondering when
You're the only one who knows that
I know you're wondering when
You're the only one who knows that
I know you're wondering when

I heard this on the radio today, driving home to my mum's, and the chorus grabbed me...  The verses aren't so applicable to me, but might be to others.  

It's by an artist called Jamelia (I think she's British), and it's called Thank You.


[Verse 1:]
The fights, those nights
I tried to pretend it don't hurt
The way, I prayed
Someday that you would love me
Really, completely
Just how I wanted it to be
But no, so wrong
Can't believe I stayed with you so long

[B-Chorus:]
You hit, you spit, you split, ever-y bit of me, yeah
You stole, you broke, you're cold
You're such a joke to me, yeah

[Chorus:]
For every last bruise you gave me
For every time I sat in tears
For the million ways you hurt me
I just wanna tell you this
You broke my world, made me strong
Thank you
Messed up my dreams, made me strong
Thank you

[Verse 2:]
My head, near dead
Just the way you wanted it
My soul, stone cold
Cos I was under you're control
So young, so dumb
Knew just how to make me succumb
But I un-derstand
To make yourself feel like a man

[B-Chorus:]
You hit, you spit, you split, ever-y bit of me, yeah
You stole, you broke, you're cold
You're such a joke to me, yeah

[Chorus:]
For every last bruise you gave me
For every time I sat in tears
For the million ways you hurt me
I just wanna tell you this
You broke my world, made me strong
Thank you
Messed up my dreams, made me strong
Thank you

[Middle eight:]
You coulda had it all babe
It coulda been so right
I woulda given you everything
Morning through night
Yeah, you taught me some lessons
Those are my blessings
That won't happen again
Thank you

[Chorus till end]


It's a great song - I'm sure those of you not in Britain can hear it on the net (assuming she IS British, and I'm not just imaging that).

Okay this one is old school, but I still like it.

Runaway Train
Soul Asylum


Call you up in the middle of the night
Like a firefly without a light
You were there like a blowtorch burning
I was a key that could use a little turning

So tired that I couldnít even sleep
So many secrets I couldnít keep
Promised myself I wouldnít weep
One more promise I couldnít keep

It seems no one can help me now
Iím in too deep; thereís no way out
This time I have really led my self astray

Runaway train, never going back
Wrong way on a one-way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow Iím neither here nor there

Can you help me remember how to smile?
Make it somehow all seem worthwile?
How on earth did I get so jaded?
Lifeís mystery seems so faded

I can go where no one else can go
I know what no one else knows
Here I am just a-drowniní in the rain
With a ticket for a runaway train

And everything seems cut-and-dried
Day and night, earth and sky
Somehow I just donít believe it

Runaway train, never going back
Wrong way on a one-way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow Iím neither here nor there

Bought a ticket for a runaway train
Like a madman laughing at the rain
A little out of touch, a little insane
Itís just easier than dealing with the pain

Runaway train, never going back
Wrong way on a one-way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow Iím neither here nor there

Runaway train, never coming back
Runaway train, tearing up the track
Runaway train, burning in my veins
I run away, but it always seems the same

i love this song.  thank you so much for posting the lyrics, I had forgotten all about it.

Concrete Angel
Martina McBride

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 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 lights
A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate
When morning comes it'll be too late

[Repeat Chorus]

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

[Repeat Chorus

For some reason these two songs speak to me

Pearl Jam - "rearviewmirror"

I took a drive today
Time to emancipate
I guess it was the beatings made me wise
But I'm not about to give thanks, or apologize
I couldn't breathe, holdin' me down
Hand on my face, pushed to the ground
Enmity gauged, united by fear
S'pose to endure what I could not forgive...

I seem to look away
Wounds in the mirror waved
It wasn't my surface most defiled
Head at your feet, fool to your crown
Fist on my plate, swallowed it down
Enmity gauged, united by fear
Tried to endure what I could not forgive

Saw things (4x)
Clearer (2x)
Once you, were in my...Rearview mirror...

I gather speed from you f***ing with me
Once and for all I'm far away
I hardly believe, finally the shades...are raised...hey...

Saw things so much clearer }
Once you, once you... } (3x)
Rearview mirror }

Saw things so much clearer
Once you...oh yeah...



Timbuk3  - "Reprise (Don't Stop Now)"

You've been down a one-way track
Putting out, not gettin' back
Darkness all along the way
Heading for the break of day
Life's a long hard uphill climb
Workin' workin' overtime
Fighting, fighting for dear life
Doing what you feel is right
Don't stop now
Don't stop now
Don't stop now
Don't stop now
Don't stop now

I'm trading my sorrows
I'm trading my shame
I'm laying them down
for the joy of the Lord

Heard late at night on a gospel music cd informercial.  Don't know the name, but I think that it is "Trading My Sorrows."  I sing it and try not to feel shame for what my mother did to me.  It has been very helpful, was really the start of me saying no strongly to the shame I have felt for being sexually abused by my mother.   Kate
