Danny easy as can be
to use major scale harmonies
to hide emotions in a rhyme

things that I did wrong
i've wrapped up in a song

They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my open mind,
Possessing and caressing me.

daxle Does not Exist, Take an Exit
I hear voices insinuating
Feeds me lyrics to this song that I am saying
Sunlight 7:20 PM, early September
Standing looking at a photograph
That you do not remember being taken
You look out of breath, and me like I am faking
As a matter of fact I don't recall this photo being taken
You don't even actually exist so I just started shaking
Does not exist, take an exit

Nate Higgins Now hold on here
Listen all around
Listen do you hear?
Listen for the sound
Listen for repeats
Listen: my heart beats

Listen to my heart beat
I can hear the music
I can hear the treat
I am too sick
To stop
Listening to my heart beat

Dance to my heart beat
I can feel my shoes
I can feel my feet
All that I knowís
I canít stop
Dancing to my heart beat

Live to my heart beat
I can taste the dew
I can taste the heat
All that is true
Must not stop
Living to my heart beat

Chase what my heart beats
I can smell the rose
I can smell the wheat
What I chose
Not to stop
Chasing what my heart beats

Lose to my heart beat
I can see the truth
I can see the street
With my youth
I must not
Lose you to my heart beat

Love to my heart beat
Love with my heart beat
Love my heart beat
Love my heart
Love you
Love you
Love you
Love you
Love you
Love me

ricmariem here in the small empty room
where only me and music looms
andmusic banging out loud
but in my mind there's no sound

i think of my current life
the events and decisions in it
thoughts go up, then they dive
now i am confused while i sit

when i heard the lyrics of the song
it lasted in my head all night long
months will pass, i'll remember still
how the lyrics of the song made me feel

i faced a challenge, a problem one time
what if at the bottom came up a crime
what's there to do, i can't decide
you're thinking of running and hide

the lyrics of the song came up to me problem was solved, as it ought to be

then...

...what now?

jennifer What ravages of spirit
conjured this temptuous rage
created you a monster
broken by the rules of love
and fate has led you through it
you do what you have to do
and fate has led you through it
you do what you have to do ...

And I have the sense to recognize that
I don't know how to let you go
every moment marked
with apparitions of your soul
I'm ever swiftly moving
trying to escape this desire
the yearning to be near you
I do what I have to do
the yearning to be near you
I do what I have to do
but I have the sense to recognize

That I don't know how
to let you go
I don't know how
to let you go

A glowing ember
burning hot
burning slow
deep within I'm shaken by the violence
of existing for only you

I know I can't be with you
I do what I have to do
I know I can't be with you
I do what I have to do
and I have sense to recognize but
I don't know how to let you go
I don't know how to let you go
I don't know how to let you go

snarky freak If you want to know how

To fly high, then go now

To the place where all the concubines...

Meet and converse with them

Marvel at their pale skin

Wonder how they chew on their pointy...

Teeth and hair are beauty

They know it's their duty

To be countess in their hearts and their...

Minds that have to whisper

See in them a sister

Look into their eyes and you'll become

Transylvanian Concubine.

You know what flows here like wine.

Stay here with us, it's just time.

Transylvanian Concubine.

Sorrow is their master

Cackling with laughter

Now he's having just one piece of...

Cakey is their make-up

Catholics try to shake up

All the things that form their lives, but they're...

Dead, their sighs, their songs

They know what they do is wrong.

Stay here with us, it's just time.

Transylvanian Concubine.

Candelabra's lighted

Satan has been sighted

Never has there been an evening like...

This is what they wanted

Always to feel hunted

You can never be too rich or too...

Thin. The blood has run out.

Fangs ruin any cute pout

Morning has come now they've flown

What have you learned from what has been shown?

MollyCule That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and
snakes, an aeroplane and Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn - world
serves its own needs, dummy serve your own needs. Feed
it off an aux speak, grunt, no, strength, Ladder
start to clatter with fear fight down height. Wire
in a fire, representing seven games, a government
for hire and a combat site. Left of west and coming in
a hurry with the furies breathing down your neck. Team
by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered cropped.
Look at that low playing! Fine, then. Uh oh,
overflow, population, common food, but it'll do. Save
yourself, serve yourself. World serves its own needs,
listen to your heart bleed dummy with the rapture and
the revered and the right, right. You vitriolic,
patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty
psyched.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

Six o'clock - TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign
towers. Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself
churn. Locking in, uniforming, book burning, blood
letting. Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate.
Light a candle, light a votive. Step down, step down.
Watch your heel crush, crushed, uh-oh, this means no
fear cavalier. Renegade steer clear! A tournament,
tournament, a tournament of lies. Offer me solutions,
offer me alternatives and I decline.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

JBauer If your going to quote modest mouse at least give them credit-- Assholes.

Perhaps the greatest moment in all of rock in the song 'radio' by alkaine trio when Matt blasts out for the second time:
"Red eyes on orange horizons"
There is no deeper feeling, no more heartfelt lyric that i've ever heard.

The lyrics to oasis "live forever" and "Don't go away" are also quite attractive. And who could forget(if they have ever heard it)- the weakerthans 'this is a fire door never leave open.'

Do you ever wonder how they convey such perfect meaning with such perfect rhyme? Do they write for the meaning or the rhyme????????

blue When I passed you in the doorway
You took me with a glance
Should have took that last bus home
But I asked you for a dance
Now we were steady to the pictures
I always get chocolate stains on my pants
Father says "he's going crazy"
Says I'm livin' in a trance,
Dancing in the moonlight
It's caught me in it's spotlight,
It's alright, it's alright, the moonlight
This long, hot summer night
It's three o'clock in the morning, I'm on the streets again
Disobeyed another warning, Shoulda been home by ten
Now I stay out 'till Sunday, I have to say I stayed with friends
It's a habit worth forming, It's a means to justify the end
Dancing in the moonlight
It's caught me in it's spotlight,
It's alright, it's alright, the moonlight
This long, hot summer night
I'm walking home
Last bus is long gone

Norm she called me late last night, to say she loved me so
it didn't matter anymore, but i say she never cared
and that she never will, i'd do it all again
i guess i'll have to wait until then
if i get drunk well, i'll pass out
on the floor now baby
you won't bother me no more
if you're drinkin' well, you know
that you're my friend and i say
i think i'll have myself a beer.

she called me late last night, to say she loved me,
so..? but i guess he changed her mind.
well i should have known it wouldn't be
all right, but i can't live without her
so i won't even try...

maybe some day, i'll think of what to say.
maybe next time i'll remember what to do,
she looks like heaven, maybe this is hell,
said she'd do it all again, she'd promise not to tell!

if i get drunk well, i'll pass out
on the floor now baby
you won't bother me no more
(and she said)
it's ok boy cause you know
we'll be good friends
and i say, i think i'll have myself a beer.

This is the end, beautiful friend.
This is the end, my only friend. The end
of our elaborate plans. The end
of everything that stands, the end.
No safety or surprise, the end.
I'll never look into your eyes again.

Can you picture what will be
so limitless and free.
Desperately in need
of some stranger's hand
in a desperate land.

Lost in a Roman wilderness of pain,
and all the children are insane;
all the children are insane
waiting for the summer rain.

There's danger on the edge of town
Ride the King's highway, baby
Wierd scenes inside the goldmine;
Ride the highway west, baby

Ride the snake.
Ride the snake, to the lake,
The ancient lake, baby
The snake he's long, seven miles
Ride the snake
He's old
And his skin is cold
The west is the best.
The west is the best.
Get here and we'll do the rest
The blue bus is calling us
The blue bus is calling us
Driver, where you takin' us?

The killer awoke before dawn. He put his boots on.
He took a face from the ancient gallery and he
Walked on down the hall.
He went into the room where his sister lived. And then he.
Paid a visit to his brother. And then he, he
Walked on down the hall.
And he came to a door. And he looked inside.

"Father." "Yes son." "I want to kill you."
"Mother, I want to..."

Come on baby, take a chance with us,
Come on baby, take a chance with us,
Come on baby, take a chance with us
And meet me at the back of the blue bus...

This is the end, beautiful friend
This is the end, my only friend, the end
It hurts to set you free, but you'll never follow me
The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die
This is the end.

New Order Bizarre Love Triangle

Every time i think of you
I feel shot right through with a bolt of blue
It's no problem of mine but it's a problem I find
Living a life that I can't leave behind
There's no sense in telling me
The wisdom of a fool won't set you free
But that's the way that it goes
And it's what nobody knows
While every day my confusion grows
Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You'll say the words that I can't say

I feel fine and I feel good
I'm feeling like I never should
Whenever I get this way, I just don't know what to say
Why can't we be ourselves like we were yesterday
I'm not sure what this could mean
I don't think you're what you seem
I do admit to myself
That if I hurt someone else
Then I'll never see just what we're meant to be
Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You'll say the words that I can't say

Cause I'm feeling nervous
Trying to be so perfect
Cause I know you're worth it
You're worth it

If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I wanna blow you away
Be with you every night...

I want to see you go down

"Marry me today"
Yes, I'm wishing my life away
These things I'll never say
It don't do me any good
It's just a waste of time
What use is it to you
What's on my mind?
If it ain't coming out
We're not going anywhere
So why can't I just tell you that I care?
What's wrong with my tongue
These words keep slipping away
I stutter, I stumble
Like I've got nothing to say
If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I wanna blow you away
Be with you every night...
Am I squeezing you too tight?
If I could say what I want to see
I want to see you go down

femme I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that's true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life
You go in shadows
You'll come apart and you'll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what's not there.

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

A stranger's light comes on slowly
A stranger's heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then smiles cover your heart

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

Fade into you
Strange you never knew

delial *deep breath*

you took your eyes away
and your amazing hair
you took the sky away
and all the breathable air
and you left an empty room
a useless bed
and a suicidal moon

it's a good thing I don't have any feelings
a damn good thing that I can't feel a damn thing anymore

you took your love away
all that amazing love
you took the memory of whatever love was
and you said "I hate you, I hate you...I hate you."

it's a good thing I don't have any feelings
a damn good thing that I can't feel a damn thing anymore

I don't have any feelings anymore

Fire&Roses Love can be tough. If we could be together I would wait for you forever. They could never tear us apart. I wanna make love to you like you want me to. You're just like an angel. All I wanna do is have some fun. I geuss we've had our fun but seems the fun is over now. Oh no we never lost control. In a day and a day love I'm gonna be gone for good again. Don't it always seem to go That you don't know what youíve got ĎTil itís gone. And I hate when things are over. How's it gonna be when you don't knwo me any more? There is no perfect place Yes I know this is true I'm just learning how to smile And that's not easy to do. I dont wanna be wasted I dont wanna live inside this daydream anymore I just wanna be happy again... She's the only one who really understands what gets me. My heart is yours to fill or burst, to break or bury, or wear as jewelry. I could tell the minute I woke up it's gonna be a lonely, lonely, lonely lonely day. Does any body care? This is what you get when you mess with us. And this fight is not worth fighting. I've found a better way to get even with my memory. I see you, your selective amnesia, and I love you still. I wish that I was anywhere with any one... making out. I wish I was the messenger and all the news was good. Like any hot blooded woman I have simply wanted an object to crave. Are you cool with just tonight? I'm giving in to you tonight. You shook me all night long. She only comes when she's on top. Hold on loosely and don't let go. And you kissed me like you meant it. You've already won me over in spite of me. Will you know I'd be proud if you'd call my name out loud? So let's walk home, let's be afraid. Well I turn pale when she walks by I am lost in her eyes. Don't wanna close my eyes, don't wanna fall asleep. Oh no no I am not sleeping. Rise and shine rub the sleep out of my eyes and try to tell myself I can't go back to bed. Tomorrow's gone I come too soon. They left before the sun came up that day. Let's take the boat out on the bay forget your job for just one day. You are young men you must be living. Life is waiting for you. And at your funeral I will sing the requiem. If I could blink if I could breathe if I could get my legs to move well this could be the day I get this girl to love me. Stay quiet, stay near stay close they can't hear... so we can get some. I've given all i've got but it's not enough. So tonight I'll raise my glass to us. Go now you are forgiven. 030708

oldephebe Now take a single second to consider What.
Suck it up, keep it in, hold it down, Come hither
What
you have lived more years than me
but what makes you think you can tell me ow its gonna be?
What.
This is critical this is crucial you've failed but your still beautiful
mWhat.
i'm not gonna leave my ash impress of effigy on the alter
mWhat.
bubble bubble up
tear me from those tearing tyrant eyes
what
tell me something tender about me
what
'cause ever since the baby taste the milk grow bitter on the vine
what are you saying wha-what
i'm peeling out of this prison you put in my mind
so what
mommy you
stop it
made a melody
she said stop
out of the unhinged menstrual tide
so tell so tell so tell
me something tender about me
cause you see
the guiless what
i'll be
ever exiled
i suppose it's self imposed

the preceding was a lyric extract from CD projecting I'm working on The song is entitled
Tell me something tender by sw for af music - its a darkly ironic musing in a like Dave Mathews/Stain mode

There's a middle-aged woman, she's dragging her feet
She carries baskets of clothes to a laundromat
While the Mexican children, kick rocks into the street
And they laugh in a language I donít understand
But I love them, why do I love them?
So the neighborhood's dimming, I smoke on the porch
Watch the people as they pass enclosed inside their cars
On their faces just anger or disappointment
I start wishing there was something I could offer them
A consolation, what could I offer them?
Well, they are sad in their suburbs, robots water the lawn
and everything they touch gets dusted spotless
And so they start to believe they've not touched anything at all
And the cars in the driveway only multiply
Well, They are lost in their houses
I've heard them sing in the shower
Making speeches to their sister on the telephone
Saying, "You come home, woman, you come here
Donít stay so far away from me"
This weather has me wanting love more tangible
Something I can hold
cause itís getting cold
Let's hold up our fists to the flame in the sky
To block out the light that's reaching for our eyes
Cause it, cause it would blind us
Yeah it will blind us
Well, I've locked my actions in the grooves of routine
So I may never be free of this apathy
But I wait for a letter that's coming to me
She sends me pictures of the ocean in an envelope
So there still is hope, yes, I can be healed
There is someone looking for what I've concealed
In my secret drawer, in my pockets deep
You will find the reasons that I canít sleep
And you will still want me
But will you still want me?
Will you still want me?
Well i said "Come for the week, you can sleep in my bed
And pass through my life like a dream through my head
It will be easy
I'll make it easy"
But, all I have for the moment is a song to pass the time
And a melody to keep me from worrying
Some simple progression to keep my fingers busy
And words that are sure to come back to me
And they'll be laughing
And they'll be laughing
My mediocrity, my mediocrity
Yeah they'll be laughing
Yeah they'll be laughing
They will be laughing

simply superlative what the hell does that mean? okay wordgrope because i mispoke your lyrics: a deeply moving vignette, *soundscape (*i'm imagining the music, the arrange ment and the melody already great stuff) palpable and prehensile, it reached right out and shook my dead heart in its cage -

Toxic_Kisses Runaway Train

by 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 couldn't even sleep
So many secrets I couldn't keep
I promised myself I wouldn't weep
One more promise I couldn't keep

It seems no one can help me now,
I'm in too deep, there's no way out
This time I have really led myself astray

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

Can you help me remember how to smile?
Make it somehow all seem worthwhile
How on earth did I get so jaded?
Life's 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-drownin' 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 don't believe it

Runaway train, never going back
Wrong way on a one-way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I'm 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
It's 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 I'm 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

delial now something completely different:

"andy would bicycle across town in the rain to bring you candy
and john would buy the gown for you to wear to the prom with
tom, the astronomer who'd name a star for you

but I'm the luckiest guy
on the lower east side
'cause I've got wheels
and you want to go for a ride

harry is the one I think you'll marry
but it's chris that you kissed after school
well, I'm a fool, there's no doubt
but when the sun comes out
(and only when the sun comes out)

I'm the luckiest guy
on the lower east side
'cause I've got wheels
and you want to go for a ride

the day is beautiful
and so are you
my car is ugly, but then
I'm ugly too
I know you'd never give me a second glance
but when the weather's nice
all the other guys don't stand a chance

I know professor blumen makes you feel like a woman
but when the wind is in your hair, you laugh like a little girl
so you share secrets with lou?
but we've got secrets too!
...well, one:
I only keep this heap for you

'cause I'm the ugliest guy on the lower east side
but I've got wheels
and you want to go for a ride"

not important Come here
Pretty please
Can you tell me where I am
You won't you say something
I need to get my bearings
I'm lost
And the shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I'm haunted
By the lives that wove the web
Inside my haunted head

Don't cry,
There's always a way
Here in November in this house of leaves
We'll pray
Please, I know it's hard to believe
To see a perfect forest
Through so many splintered trees
You and me
And these shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I'm haunted
By the promises I've made
And others I have broken
I'm haunted
By the lives that wove the web
Inside my haunted head

Hallways... always

I'll always love you
I'll always need you
I'll always want you

And I will always miss you

Come here
No I won't say please
One more look at the ghost
Before I'm gonna make it leave
Come here
I've got the pieces here
Time to gather up the splinters
Build a casket for my tears

I'm haunted
(By the lives that I have loved)
I'm haunted
(By the promises I've made)
I'm haunted
By the hallways in this tiny room
The echos there of me and you
The voices that are carrying this tune
-Poe

delial I recited that song (haunted)for an assignment one year.
That album is like the soundtrack to my life [ and the book it's the soundtrack to is awesome; their family is super talented, haha ]; and now, so I'm not totally off topic:


"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 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

I've been here
silent all these years"

alkaline trio "clavicle" Been on top of the world since about six months ago
Marking the first time I laid eyes on you
I lost all train of thought as I entered the room
Saw what looked like really good food then I saw you
And so did you

I want to wake up naked next to you
Kissing the curve in your clavicle
Kissing your clavicle

Been on top of the world since about 1 week ago
Marking a time when I was drunk enough to talk to you
I lost all train of thought as your eyes met mine
Told you I thought you were gorgeous
You gave me your phone number, I gave you mine
Before you left I said that you can bet
I'll be bothering you soon
You said "No bother, please do"

I've called you twice
It's been a hellish fight
To not think about you all the time
Sitting around waiting for your call

I want to wake up naked next to you
Kissing the curve in your clavicle
Kissing your clavicle

I want to wake up naked next to you
Kissing the curve in your clavicle

alkaline trio "stupid kid" There are things that used to make me smile
One of them was you for just a little while
You left me for dead so far away
I replaced you with fear and shame
You'll be happy on the day I die
There are things that used to make me laugh
But now they're deeply buried in the past
I left them there so far away
Replaced my humor with my pain
I'll be happy on the day it dies
Remember when I said I love you
Well forget it I take it back
I was just a stupid kid back then
I take back every word that I said
There are things that used to make you cry
One of them was me for just a little while
Why is it that you had to say
Goodbye in your special way
You slashed the tires on my car

alkaline trio "fuck you aurora" My, my what a mess we've made
of our pretty little heads these days
It appears a heavy wind's blown through here recently
Best wishes have been made for you
You never had no say it's true
You have to be the cutest gravedigger I've ever seen
And all your lonely nights in the city of lights
are much like all these crowded bars
I so often find my stupid self stumbling through

My, my what a mess was made of my head
when I heard what you'd been through that day
It appears a violent storm's passed through you recently
Letters meant to be sent have been torn
The phone lies off the hook, on the floor
All these "I'm sorry"s and "I miss you"s are useless,
I fucked this one up long ago
And all your lonely nights in the city of lights
are much like all these crowded bars
I so often find my stupid self stumbling through

Fuck you Aurora,
You took my only friend
And although it's all my fault,
the blaming myself had to come to an end
so I say:
Fuck you Aurora,
You took my only friend
You wont catch me behind the wheel
of a Chrysler ever again

My, my what a mess we've made
of our precious little lives these days
It appears a big fucking tornado
has twisted us up recently
Best wishes have been made for you
You never had no say it's true
You have to be the cutest gravedigger I've ever seen
And all your lonely nights in the city of lights
are much like all these crowded bars
I so often find my stupid self stumbling through

Fuck you Aurora,
You took my only friend
And although it's all my fault,

white_wave_asserts_herself It's funny how I found myself in love with you
If I could buy my reasoning I'd pay to lose
One half won't do
I've asked myself
How much do you do?
Commit yourself

Well it's my life
Don't you forget
It's my life
It never ends

Funny how I blind myself
I never knew
If I was sometimes played upon
Afraid to lose
I'd tell myself what good do you do
Convince myself

It's my life
Don't you forget
It's my life
It never ends

I asked myself
How much do you do?
Commit yourself

It's my life
Don't you forget
Caught in crowd
It never ends

It's my life
Don't you forget
Caught in the crowd
It never ends

It's my life
Don't you forget

ethereal Frozen

Deserted hallways and vacant expressions
Bein' alone ain't relievin' your tensions
Searchin' your phone book for someone to call
It doesn't matter you've lost them all

Why does it hurt so bad you can't cry?
Bein' so afraid makes ya just wanna die
Somebody please reach out a hand
Cause I'm passed fallin'
I'm frozen

All of your friends are wearin' a smile
Bein' the outcast accepted is vile
And you hang with everyday
But talkin' to you is out of their way

Won't you wake me up
cause I'm dreamin' I am lost
Reality is touched
By the hands of something beautiful
Scream and shake me up
I don't wanna know where I am
Who Wants me?
When you can have something beautiful

I'll open my heart and you'll cut me off
Fighting for salvation never stops
Can't you see how you've left me here?
This time I'm not coming back I fear

Why does it hurt so bad you can't cry?
Bein' so afraid makes ya just wanna die
Somebody please reach out a hand
Cause I'm passed fallin'
I'm frozen

ee beep peep a.k.a. "peepers" THE KIND OF GIRL by The Zombies

The kind of girl who says to me
she doesn't want my love
Is not the kind of girl that you tell me I should be thinking of
But more of that another day
I've found another child to share with me
All of the pleasures that you've enjoyed

But don't you think that you're forgiven for taking her away
For if it hadn't been for your deceit, I'd be holding her today

(x2):
You think you've got everything
Just because you hold her in your arms & squeeze her tight
Don't you understand that she runs away
With anyone who happens in her sight
Oh you can't see how hard she is; you think you're very wise
But she will run away from you before you realize

She's gone, she's gone

The Pogues In honor of St. Paddy's Day
And bring on the Green_Beer....


Well Jimmy played harmonica in the pub where I was born
He played it from the night time to the peaceful early morn
He soothed the souls of psychos and the men who had the horn
And they all looked very happy in the morning

Now Jimmy didn't like his place in this world of ours
Where the elephant man broke strong men's necks
When he'd had too many Powers
So sad to see the grieving of the people that he's leaving
And he took the road for God knows in the morning

We walked him to the station in the rain
We kissed him as we put him on the train
And we sang him a song of times long gone
Though we knew that we'd be seeing him again
(Far away) sad to say I must be on my way
So buy me beer and whiskey 'cause I'm going far away (far away)
I'd like to think of me returning when I can
To the greatest little boozer and to Sally MacLennane

The years passed by the times had changed I grew to be a man
I learned to love the virtues of sweet Sally MacLennane
I took the jeers and drank the beers and crawled back home at dawn
And ended up a barman in the morning

I played the pump and took the hump and watered whiskey down
I talked of whores and horses to the men who drank the brown
I heard them say that Jimmy's making money far away
And some people left for heaven without warning

We walked him to the station in the rain
We kissed him as we put him on the train
And we sang him a song of times long gone
Though we knew that we'd be seeing him again
(Far away) sad to say I must be on my way
So buy me beer and whiskey 'cause I'm going far away (far away)
I'd like to think of me returning when I can
To the greatest little boozer and to Sally MacLennane

When Jimmy came back home he was surprised that they were gone
He asked me all the details of the train that they went on
Some people they are scared to croak but Jimmy drank until he choked
And he took the road for heaven in the morning

We walked him to the station in the rain
We kissed him as we put him on the train
And we sang him a song of times long gone
Though we knew that we'd be seeing him again
(Far away) sad to say I must be on my way
So buy me beer and whiskey 'cause I'm going far away (far away)
I'd like to think of me returning when I can
To the greatest little boozer and to Sally MacLennane

And we're different creeds
And different people

Like we were flowers
And our milk has been

The crack inside your fucking heart is me

Nothing heals and nothing grows (2x)

Because it's a great big white world
And we are drained of our colors
We used to love ourselves, we used to love one another

In a world so white what else could I say?

And hell was so cold

love & hate Is it getting better?
Or do you feel the same?

One love
One life
When it's one need
In the night
One love
We get to share it
Leaves you baby if you
Don't care for it

Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Well it's

Too late
Tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other
One

Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus?
To the lepers in your head

Did I ask too much?
More than a lot.
You gave me nothing,
Now it's all I got
We're one
But we're not the same
Well we
Hurt each other
Then we do it again
You say
Love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt

One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
Sisters
Brothers
One life
But we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other

One

love & hate On a cold wet
afternoon
no room for love and emptiness
by a freeway
i confess i was lost in the pages
of a book
full of death
reading how we'll die alone
and if a god will lay to rest
anywhere we want to go
in your house
i long to be
room by room
patiently
i'll wait for you there
like a stone
i'll wait for you there
alone

and on my death bed
i will prey
to the gods and the angels
like a pagan
to anyone who will take me to heaven
to a place
i would recall
i was there so long ago
the sky was bruised
the world was black
and there you led me on

in your house
i long to be
room by room
patiently
i'll wait for you there
liek a stone
i'll wait for you there
alone

in all i read
till the day was gone
and i sat in regret
in all the things i've done
for all that i've blessed
and all that i've wronged
in dreams till my death
i will wonder on

in your house
i long to be
room by room

i'll wait for you there
like a stone
i'll wait for you there
alone
alone

love & hate "Looks like I've lost my will to carry on, my friend" she said
And you can hear it in my whispered cries for love
I need your blissful touch to carry me away again
So can we roll tonight, roll through your desert, can we start over and just...

Run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory, but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right
We can just run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right

"Looks like I've lost my will to carry on, my friend" she said
I'm like a posse that's been ridin' for days
I've got the scars to prove that love has had its day and it's way with me
So can we roll tonight, roll through your desert, can we start over and just...
Run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right
We can just run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right

This ain't no night to be on your own
You've got to know where you're coming from
To know just where you're goin', lord
You've got to know where you're coming from
This ain't no night to be on your own

Run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right
We can just run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care
I don't care I don't care I don't care I don't care
Run away
Run away
Run away

love & hate Bring back that "hair-down", unguarded mystery
I liked it better when your tightrope walked on me
Board up my window, prepare for a hurricane
You have a way of breaking through my barricade
You give me all-new games to play

You set me soul free
Now every word that she speaks to me is pure gold
She set my soul free
She give me love, give me hope, give me strength to bear my faults for you

Was my intention to take control again?
Somehow you got me on the ropes of my own plan
To turn up the volume and make you dance for me
Release some pressure so that I can turn and see
Spirit manifests as "She"
You set me soul free (you set my soul free)
Now every word that she speaks to me is pure gold
She set my soul free (she set my soul free)
She give me love, give me hope, give me strength to bear my faults for you

Like a flower
I can see but I canŪī†feel
Oh yeah
And nothing that you do could ever make me run, run away from you
I never knew, I never knew she could
She set my soul free
Now every word that she speaks to me is pure gold
She set my soul free (she set my soul free)
She give me love, give me hope, give me strength to bear my faults for you

All Right Here Lyrics
Artist(Band):Sara Groves


It's every loss and every love
It's every blessing from above
Here I am, all added up
Oh, it's all right here

It's what I know, and what I'm guessing
Half truths, and full confessions
It's why I choose to learn my lessons
Oh, it's all right here

(Chorus)
And I'm not God, I'm a girl - I confess
That I don't have a sea of forgetfulness

No, it's all right here
It makes me stronger, it makes me wince
Makes me think twice when I pick my friends
Oh, it's all right here
It's all right here

It's caution and curiousity
And tt's all the things I never see
Welling up inside of me
Oh, it's all right here

It's what is best, and what is worse
It's how I see the universe
It's in every line and every verse
Oh, it's all right here

(Chorus)

Every heart has so much history
It's my favorite place to start
Sit down a while and share your narative with me
I'm not afraid of who you are

I'm all here, and you're all there
Some of this is unique, and some of it we share
Add it up and start from there
Well, it's all right here

(Chorus)

It's caution and curiousity
It's all the things I never see
Oh it's all right
It's what is best, and what is worse
It's how I see the universe
Oh it's all right, it's all right here
I'm all right here

sirflaccid It's a crime, you let it, happen to me.
Nevermind, I'll let it happen to you.
Out of mind, forget it, there's nothing to lose.
But my mind and all the things I wanted

Everytime I get it, I throw it away.
It's a sign, I get it, I wanted to stay.
By the time I lose it I'm not afraid.
Not alive but I can Surely fake it.

How can I believe when this cloud hangs over me.
You're the part of me that I don't wanna see.

Forget it

There's a place, I see you, follow me.
Just a taste of all that might come to be.
I'm alone but holding breath you can breathe.
To question every answer counted

Just fade away
Please let me stay
Caught in your way

Forget it

It's a crime you let it happen to me.
Out of mind, I love it, easy to please.
Nevermind, forget it, just memories
On a page inside a spiral notebook

Just fade away
Please let me stay
Caught in your way
I can live forever here

Forget it

How can I believe when this cloud hangs over me.
You're a part of me that I don't wanna see.

I can live forever here

Ivory Why is it that people type up song lyrics so often?
I'm not being condescending because I am guilty of doing it myself.
I'm just curious as to what the obsession is...
Hmm...

saxgoddess I'm scared,
so afraid to show I care,
Will he think me weak,
If i tremble when i speak.
WHat if there's another one he's thinking of,
maybe he's in love, i'd feel like a fool, life can be so cruel, i don't know what to do.

'Tell him' Celine dion and babara streisand - a song that shows exactly how i feel.

morphine I was once sitting on top of the world
I really had things in my hand
But something went wrong I'm not sure what
And now I'm sitting here at home alone
People they want to give you free advice
Well that's something that I always try
But you get what you pay for that's what I say
And now I'm paying and paying and paying
I lost everything I had
I'm starting over from scratch
I lost everything I had
I'm starting over from scratch
Everything I wanted cooking on the stove
Everything I needed right in the home
I had the best thing you can have
You can have it you can have it now
I lost everything I had
I'm starting over from scratch
I lost everything I had
I'm starting over from scratch
It's just a fact (?)
Wiped that smile off my face
Put me down in my proper place
But the world just keeps on spinning around
And I'm still hanging around in this world
I lost everything I had
I'm starting over from scratch
I lost everything I had
I'm starting over from scratch

blueJessi Woke up and for the first time the animals were gone
It's left this house empty now, not sure if I belong
Yesterday you asked me to write you a pleasant song
I'll do my best now, but you've been gone for so long
The window's open now and the winter settles in
We'll call it Christmas when the adverts begin
I love your depression and I love your double chin
I love 'most everything that you bring to this offering
Oh I know that I left you in places of despair
Oh I know that I love you, so please throw down your hair
At night I trip without you, and hope I don't wake up
'Cause waking up without you is like drinking from an empty cup
Woke up and for the first time the animals were gone
Our clocks are ticking now so before our time is gone
We could get a house and some boxes on the lawn
We could make babies and accidental songs
I know I've been a liar and I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break yet, but I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now, yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes, still all I see is you
Oh I know that I left you in places of despair
Oh I know that I love you, so please throw down your hair
At night I trip without you, and hope I don't wake up
'Cause waking up without you is like drinking from an empty cup

oren In my room
All alone.
Just staring
At the phone.

I don't know if
I should call her.
Anyway, she's prob'ly not at home.

Turning out
The light.
Thinking through
That night.
I don't know if
I could ever make things right.

Now, maybe she wants to forgive me.
Yes, maybe she's willing to try.
And maybe she's starting to miss me.
Or maybe I'm a fool
Since she said goodbye.

In my room
All alone.
Still staring
At the phone.

I don't know if
I should call her.
I don't know if
I should call her.
I don't know if
I should call her now.

thieums Baby broke down
Now she's living at the hospital
Baby broke down
I guess that's the way it goes
Baby broke down
Imagine the impossible
Baby broke down
Communicates in code

And she gushes laughs
'Cause it's only a joke
After all

Risen Some songs are really getting me there right now. I'm a little bit in love with Keaton Henson - I can't recommend him enough.

"Lying to You" is possibly the most heartbreakingly poignant song I've heard this year.

walking_far_from_home

I was walking far from home
Where the names were not burned along the wall
Saw a building, high as heaven
But the door was so small, door was so small

I saw rainclouds, little babies
And a bridge that had tumbled to the ground
I saw sinners making music
And I dreamt of that sound, dreamt of that sound

I was walking far from home
But I carried your letters all the while
I saw lovers in a window
Whisper want_me_like_time, want me like time

I saw sickness bloom in fruit trees
I saw blood and a bit of it was mine
I saw children in a river
But their lips were still dry, lips were still dry

I was walking far from home
And I found your face mingled in the crowd
Saw a boat-full of believers
Sail off talking too loud, talking too loud

I saw sunlight on the water
Saw a bird fall like a hammer from the sky
An old woman on a speed train
She was closing her eyes, closing her eyes

I saw flowers on a hillside
And a millionaire pissing on the lawn
Saw a prisoner take a pistol
And say join me in song, join me in song

Saw a car crash in the country
Where the prayers run like weeds along the road
I saw strangers stealing kisses
Giving only their clothes, only their clothes

Saw a white dog chase it's tail
And a pair of hearts carved into a stone
I saw kindness and an angel
Crying "take me back home, take me back home"

Saw a highway, saw an ocean
I saw widows in the temple to the Lord
Naked dancers in the city
How they spoke for us all, spoke for us all

I saw loaded linen tables
And a motherless colt then it was gone
I saw hungry brothers waiting
With the radio on, radio on

I was walking far from home
Where the names were not burned along the wall
Saw a wet road form a circle
And it came like a call, came like a call from the Lord
