This is the first song:
I just set these lyrics here, since they are a great help for me, maybe it will be for others also. Mostly they are a little dark, but they are still helpful for me.

Evanescence: "Hello"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjEPCczY11E

Playground school bell rings again
Rain clouds come to play again
Has no one told you she's not breathing?
Hello I am your mind giving you someone to talk to
Hello

If I smile and don't believe
Soon I know I'll wake from this dream
Don't try to fix me, I'm not broken
Hello I'm the lie living for you so you can hide
Don't cry

Suddenly I know I'm not sleeping
Hello I'm still here
All that's left of yesterday

Evanescence: "My Immortal"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tCoDtqZo14

I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed 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

[Chorus:]
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 resonating light
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 too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

Herman Van Veen: Wie
original song in Dutch
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rU3i8QwmljI

(Lyrics Translated in English)

Who

Who took the sun, out of your face
Who put out, the light in you
Who made your red cheeks pale
Who chased the dreams out of your head
Who broke your little heart
And coloured your eyes black
Who didnít do what he had promised you?

Who smothered the laughter in your throat
And clenched your fists
Who killed the open-minded child
That always rose when it fell
Who bended your straight back
Who destroyed your toys
Who broke your wings in the pleasure of your flight?

Who passed you and left you behind
Who betrayed your believes
Who heard the cock crow three times
And still kept himself deaf
Who is it who forgot
That you had the future
Who gave you, just like me, too little love?

Who gave you, just like me, too little love

here's a less dark one

Evanescence: Everybody's Fool

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7apWr6hz4U

Perfect by nature
Icons of self-indulgence
Just what we all need
More lies about a world that
Never was and never will be
Have you no shame, don't you see me
You know you've got everybody fooled

Look, here she comes now
Bow down and stare in wonder
Oh, how we love you
No flaws when you're pretending
But now I know she
Never was and never will be
You don't know how you've betrayed me
And somehow you've got everybody fooled

Without the mask where will you hide
Can't find yourself lost in your lie

I know the truth now
I know who you are
And I don't love you anymore

It never was and never will be
You don't know how you've betrayed me
And somehow you've got everybody fooled

It never was and never will be
You're not real and you can't save me
Somehow now you're everybody's fool[u][/u]

Some other lyrics (both translated from Dutch)

Ik kan het niet alleen Ė Marco Borsato
Translation: I canít do it alone

Everybody walks with a curve around me
Afraid to hurt my soul
Afraid for my anger
Shown on my face
With words as weapons
So sharp as my tongue
I smash the happiness out my hands
Alone in the darkness
Doors and windows are closed

Cold is my world
It snows in my hart
Thereís ice in the white of my eyes
Away is the water
The love streams through me
Strong are the bricks and high is the wall
Sealed are the doors and the windows
I want to break through them, but I canít get to them from the inside

I canít do it alone, no
I canít do it alone
I have the hand of the night on my throat
The loneliness gets to become to much
I canít do it alone
Alone alone

Oh, I yell for your love
But I stay silence as a grave
I crave for you
Still I turn you down
Mine ďleave me aloneĒ is a ďdonít leave me longer aloneĒ

Donít listen to my words
Donít listen to what I say
And keep trying
Even when I send you away
Donít look at my mask
But, please look through me

Because I canít do it alone, no
I canít do it alone
I have the hand of the night on my throat
The loneliness is getting to much
I canít do it alone
Alone
----------------------------------------------------------------

Lentesneeuw (Marco Borsato)
Translation: Spring-snow*

The sun of spring is shining
She spreads her wings
The birds come closer
But you donít hear a single sound

Imprisoned in silence
Will this ever go away?
You donít see your new life
You only feel the pain

The trees releases there blossoms
The smell is getting shattered
It doesnít get to you
Spring-snow
You only see spring-snow

Youíre focussing your glance above
Youíre asking yourself ďwhy?Ē
Youíre already seen to long no light
Even when the sun is shining

The trees releases there blossoms
The smell is getting shattered
It doesnít get to you
Spring-snow
You only see spring-snow

*I know that the word spring-snow isnít a real word, but itís the best translation I could give to the Dutch word the singer used.

Here is an other lyric, I think itís rather dark, because itís about the question which canít be answered, even when its that question I want to be answered more then anything else.

Roger Whittaker
Why

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMJvywjL83w

Something is going wrong
With the singer and the song
And the music isnít gentle anymore
Thereís a mist across the moon
And the sunís too hot at noon
And the house is dark behind the broken door
Where the flowers used to grow
With their leaves are hanging low
And the constant shadow lies across the floor
Thereís a strange and empty sky
Where the wild birds used to fly
And I never tasted bitter rain before

And will the grass be gone from underneath the sky
Will the golden flower wither soon and die
Will the fire burn out the land
And the sea fill-up with sand
Will the last word ever spoken be why?
Will the last word ever spoken be why?

Someoneís lost the plan
For the brotherhood of man
And no oneís trying to find it anymore
And the winds become a sigh
For those who hate and those who die
And the waves are black and slow along the shore

And will the grass be gone from underneath the sky
Will the golden flower wither soon and die
Will the fire burn out the land
Will the sea fill-up with sand
Will the last word ever spoken be why?
Will the last word ever spoken be why, why, why?
Will the last word ever spoken be Ö WHY?

Still an other lyric. Its a song I really like, because it talks about the difficult journey ahead of us, which everyone of us needs to take.

Enya: ďPilgrimĒ

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86QykTK9rFI

Pilgrim, how you journey
on the road you chose
to find out why the winds die
and where the stories go.
All days come from one day
that much you must know,
you cannot change what's over
but only where you go.

One way leads to diamonds,
one way leads to gold,
another leads you only
to everything you're told.
In your heart you wonder
which of these is true;
the road that leads to nowhere,
the road that leads to you.

Will you find the answer
in all you say and do?
Will you find the answer
In you?

Each heart is a pilgrim,
each one wants to know
the reason why the winds die
and where the stories go.
Pilgrim, in your journey
you may travel far,
for pilgrim it's a long way
to find out who you are...

Pilgrim, it's a long way
to find out who you are...

Pilgrim, it's a long way
to find out who you are...

Still an other lyric, itís a song about strength.
The moment we dare to speak up, we can crush the one(s) who betrayed us.

Labi Siffre
Something Inside So Strong

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcKoYGNj0BU

The higher you build your barriers
The taller I become
The farther you take my rights away
The faster I will run
You can deny me
You can decide to turn your face away
No matter, cos there's....

Something inside so strong
I know that I can make it
Tho' you're doing me wrong, so wrong
You thought that my pride was gone
Oh no, something inside so strong
Oh oh oh oh oh something inside so strong

The more you refuse to hear my voice
The louder I will sing
You hide behind walls of Jericho
Your lies will come tumbling
Deny my place in time
You squander wealth that's mine
My light will shine so brightly
It will blind you
Cos there's......

Something inside so strong
I know that I can make it
Tho' you're doing me wrong, so wrong
You thought that my pride was gone
Oh no, something inside so strong
Oh oh oh oh oh something inside so strong

Brothers and sisters
When they insist we're just not good enough
When we know better
Just look 'em in the eyes and say
I'm gonna do it anyway
I'm gonna do it anyway
I'm gonna do it anyway
I'm gonna do it anyway

Something inside so strong
And I know that I can make it
Tho' you're doing me wrong, so wrong
You thought that my pride was gone
Oh no, something inside so strong
Oh oh oh oh oh something inside so strong

Brothers and sisters
When they insist we're just not enough
When we know better
Just look 'em in the eyes and say
I'm gonna do it anyway
I'm gonna do it anyway
I'm gonna do it anyway
I'm gonna do it anyway

Because there's something inside so strong
And I know that I can make it
Tho' you're doing me, so wrong
Oh no, something inside so strong
Oh oh oh oh oh something inside so strong

John,

Thanks for putting up these lyrics. You are so right; finding the strength to speak up is such an important step.

Much love,
Larry

hey all, I jsut put a new lyric on, I think it's about a question which we often asking ourselves.

Solitary Ground Ė by Epica

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQIbzXY1sRk

Living at different places
Evading into various spaces
My compass has broken
I'm losing the way
An ongoing madness has led me astray

My past breathes down my neck
And it seems now that all I can do is
Go back to beginnings when all lay ahead
A fading illusion now plagues me instead

In me there's still a place that fulfils me
A sanctity here that I call home, I run to
When winter descends
If I try, can I find solid ground

I follow elusive paths
Oh, it seems they've been written in stone
And the door to a new life is closing so fast
Burning the bridges will not bring me back

In me there's still a place that fulfils me
A sanctity here that I call home, I run to
When winter descends
If I try, can I find solid ground

(Instrumental music)

In me there's still a place that fulfils me
A sanctity here that I call home, I run to
When winter descends
If I try, can I find solid ground

I know that in me there's still a place that fulfils me
A sanctity here that I call home, I run to
When winter descends
If I try, can I find solid ground
Or am I just wasting time?

I've just lend a cd of "Within Temptation" and I really think it has some good lyrics on.

1.Stand My Ground

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sCkAvh50Vs

I can see
when you stay low nothing happends
does it feel right ?

Late at night
things i thought i put behind me
haunt my mind

I just know theres no escape
now once it sets its eyes on you
but i wont run, have to stare it in the eye

Stand my ground, i wont give in
no more denying, i got to face it
wont close my eyes and hide the truth inside
if i dont make it, someone else will stand my ground

Its all around
getting stronger, coming closer
into my world

I can feel
that its time for me to face it
can i take it?

Though this might just be the ending
of the life i held so dear
but i wont run, theres no turningback from here

Stand my ground, i wont give in
no more denying, i got to face it
wont close my eyes and hide the truth inside
if i dont make it, someone else will stand my ground

All i know for sure is im trying
i will always stand my ground

Stand my ground, i wont give in
no more denying, i got to face it
wont close my eyes and hide the truth inside
if i dont make it, someone else will stand my ground

Stand my ground, i wont give in
no more denying, i got to face it
wont close my eyes and hide the truth inside
if i dont make it, someone else will stand my ground

And an other one, from the same cd "The Silent Force" from "Within Temptation". I hope you like them, I do.

2. Angels
Sparkling angel
I believe
You are my saviour
In my time of need

Blinded by faith
I couldn't hear
All the whispers
Their warning so clear

I see the angels
I'll lead them to your door
There is no escape now
No mercy no more

No remorse cause I still remember
The smile when you tore me apart

Refrain:
You took my heart
Deceived me right from the start
You showed me dreams
I wished they'd turn into real
You broke the promise
And made me realise
It was all just a lie

Sparkling angel
Couldn't see
Your dark intentions
Your feelings for me

Fallen angel
Tell me why
What is the reason?
The thorn in your eye

I see the angels
I'll lead them to your door
There is no escape now
No mercy no more

No remorse cause I still remember
The smile when you tore me apart

Refrain

Could have been forever
Now we have reached the end

This world may have failed you
It doesn't give the reason why
You could have chosen
A different path of life

The smile when you tore me apart
You took my heart
Deceived me right from the start
You showed me dreams
I wished they'd turn into real
You broke a promise
And made me realise
It was all just a lie

Could have been forever
Now we have reached the end

Well it looks like it's been a while since I posted a song-lyric, so here's a new one I like. It's also from "Within Temptation".

A Dangerous Mind

I'm searching for answers
'cause something is not right.
I follow the signs,
I'm close to the fire.

I fear that soon you'll reveal
Your dangerous mind.

It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
I fear your smile and the promise inside.
It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
I fear your presence, I'm frozen inside.

I'm searching for answers
Not questioned before.
The curse of awareness,
There's no peace of mind.
As your true colours show
A dangerous sign.

It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
I see the truth that you've buried inside.
It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
There is no mercy just anger I find.

I just have to know, while I still have time.
Do I have to run, or hide away from you?

It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
I see the truth that you've buried inside.
It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
There is no mercy just anger I find.

It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
I see the truth that you've buried inside.
It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
There is no mercy just anger I find.

(I hope you like them just as me)

Here's a new lyric

Overcome (by Within Temptation)

Where are the heroes
In my time of need
Is my crying abandoned?
Or have they gone
Oh no

They just tend to stand
Out of the rain
Thinking but not acting
That they're not to blame

Falling and crawling
A fight to stand up
Memory still haunts me
In the dead of night

Over and over
I felt so small
But one day I'll be stronger
And you better watch out

Chorus:
I will overcome
In violence there's silence
Oh no,
It can't be undone
I will overcome
Knowing that I'm not the only one
I will overcome
It's the only way to carry on

Where are the saviours
Afraid of the toll
Sorry do my nine inch nails
Slash your soul?

Such heroes
Throwing stones
Straight at the one
Who is standing alone?

Twisting and turning
It's always the same
The truth is never honest
When you're to blame

Pushing and pulling
Never give in
One day I wish
You see you're not so beautiful within

Chorus

Run and run
Run and run

Chorus

I will overcome

Hope you'll like it as much as me

I've found some new song, it's a very nice one, starting quite dark but ending nicely. It's about the worth of fighting on, or that's what i got out of this song. Hope you'll enjoy it.

Bryan Adams - Sound the bugle Lyrics
Album: Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron

Sound the bugle now - play it just for me
As the seasons change - remember how I used to be
Now I can't go on - I can't even start
I've got nothing left - just an empty heart

I'm a soldier - wounded so I must give up the fight
There's nothing more for me - lead me away...
Or leave me lying here

Sound the bugle now - tell them I don't care
There's not a road I know - that leads to anywhere
Without a light I fear that I will - stumble in the dark
Lay right down - decide not to go on

Then from on high - somewhere in the distance
There's a voice that calls - remember who your are
If you lose yourself - your courage soon will follow

So be strong tonight - remember who you are
Ya you're a soldier now - fighting in a battle
To be free once more -
Ya that's worth fighting for

I found a new lyric
I'm not fully sure how to read it. But I read it as like it's me talking to little me. Maybe you guys think something different, don't hesitate to let me know.

Brothers under the sun - Bryan Adams

I had a dream - of the wide open prairie
I had a dream - of the pale morning sky
I had a dream - that we flew on golden wings
And we were the same - just the same - you and I
Follow your heart - little child of the west wind
Follow the voice - that's calling you home
Follow your dreams - but always, remember me
I am your brother - under the sun

We are like birds of a feather
We are two hearts joined together
We will be forever as one
My brother under the sun

Wherever you hear - the wind in the canyon
Wherever you see - the buffalo run
Wherever you go - I'll be there beside you
Cos you are my brother - my brother under the sun

Here's another one.

Shelter of Storms - Mary Chapin Carpenter

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Snx5AhMP6Jc

You always had the gift of speed;
You'd disappear without a trace.
It all depended on the need,
And on the pain you could not face.
So you would leave the home you'd found,
Pack it up without delay.
Cut your losses, blow that town,
Tomorrow was another day.

All the years and all the miles,
They lost track of time.
I look back now only once in awhile;
My memory just wants to blur the lines.
'Cause you know me, I just can't change.
I greet the sun, and find it strange
To watch you run
For the shelter of storms
For the shelter of storms.

Now where are you out in the world
Searching for a little grace
Searching for a precious pearl
Wisdom from some future place.
You let me go without a wave
I noticed that and nothing more
I guess I'm going to my grave
Wondering what it all was for.

All the years and all the miles
It's so hard keeping track of time
Do you think of me every once in awhile
When the rain lets up and the sun can shine
Just a little peace and quiet for a change
I still greet the sun and find it strange
To watch you run
For the shelter of storms
For the shelter of storms.

Go back the years, subtract the miles,
And see what's left for you to find
All the battles, all the trials,
You can't be free till you leave behind
Your bitter heart, but you can't change;
You curse the sun, and pray for rain,
You always run
For the shelter of storms,
For the shelter of storms.

This song can be triggering so be cautious when you listen and/or read it.

Caged - Within Temptation

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMzpGry_tQA

These are the darkest clouds
To have surrounded me
Now I find my self alone caught in a cage
There's no flower to be found in here
Not withering
Or pale to me
Everyone with a friendly face
Seems to hide some secret inside

He told me he loved me
While he laughed in my face
He just led me astray
He took my virtue
I feel so cold inside
Sorrow has frozen my mind

My heart is covered
With thoughts entangled
How could it ever have felt so real?
Is there a place more lonely than I feel within?
Could I have seen?
Could I have known?
I just took it as the truth
Everyone with a friendly face
Seems to hide some secret inside

He told me he loved me
While he laughed in my face
He just led me astray
He took my virtue
I feel so cold inside
Sorrow has frozen my mind

Always there to remind me
It keeps me from believing
That someone might be there
Who'll free me and never ever leave me.

This song was very special to me when I first heard it when I was 11 or so in 1984. This song spoke to me. In my mind I pictured Morrissey speaking to me and being my "protector." During many dark nights throughout my life, this song got me through. Listening to it still, it brings a lump to my throat.

Here's the original version:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcFHPl0NbwM

Here's a heart-wrenching beautiful cover by Sinead O'Connor:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKVuSjSGUKk

The Hand That Rocks The Cradle
Please don't cry
For the ghost and the storm outside
Will not invade this sacred shrine
Nor infiltrate your mind
My life down I shall lie
If the bogey-man should try
To play tricks on your sacred mind
To tease, torment, and tantalise
Wavering shadows loom
A piano plays in an empty room
There'll be blood on the cleaver tonight
And when darknesss lifts and the room is bright
I'll still be by your side
For you are all that matters
And I'll love you to till the day I die
There never need be longing in your eyes
As long as the hand that rocks the cradle is mine
Ceiling shadows shimmy by
And when the wardrobe towers like a beast of prey
There's sadness in your beautiful eyes
Oh, your untouched, unsoiled, wonderous eyes
My life down I shall lie
Should restless spirits try
To play tricks on your sacred mind
I once had a child, and it saved my life
And I never even asked his name
I just looked into his wondrous eyes
And said : "never never never again"
And all too soon I did return
Just like a moth to a flame
So rattle my bones all over the stones
I'm only a beggar-man whom nobody owns
Oh, see how words as old as sin
Fit me like a glove
I'm here and here I'll stay
Together we lie, together we pray
There never need be longing in your eyes
As long as the hand that rocks the cradle is mine
As long as the hand that rocks the cradle is mine
Mine
Climb up on my knee, sonny boy
Although you're only three, sonny boy
You're - you're mine
And your mother she just never knew
Oh, your mother ...
As long ... as long ... as long
I did my best for her
I did my best for her
As long ... as long ... as long as ... as long
I did my best for her

Here's some other lyric with youtube-link

Annie Lennox - Universal Child
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nInCpOvDC8

How many mountains must you face before you learn to climb.
I'm gonna give you what it takes, my universal child.

I'm gonna try to find a way to keep you safe from harm.
I'm gonna be a special place, a shelter from the storm.
And I can see you, you're everywhere, your portrait fills the sky.
I'm gonna wrap my arms around you, my universal child.

And when I look into your eyes, so innocent and pure.
I see the shadow of the things that you've had to endure.
I see the tracks of every tear that ran ran down your face.
I see the hurt, I see the pain, I see the human race.
And I can feel you, you're everywhere, shining like the sun.
And I wished to God that kids like you could be like everyone.

How many tumbles must it take before you learn to fly.
I'm gonna help you spread your wings, my universal child.
I'm gonna help you find a way to keep you safe from harm.
We're gonna be a special place, a shelter from the storm.

I can feel you everywhere shining like the sun.
And I wished to God that kids like you could be like everyone.
And I wished to God that kids like you could be like everyone.

I would like to share Fix you- Cold PLay. This song helped me during my recovery.

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
COULD IT BE WORSE?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you.

So here's a new songlyric. Although I've listened to it many times already. It's just now I thought of putting it here.
This time, it's another one from Evanescence

"Going Under"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYVm0qbWIZU&feature=related

Now I will tell you what I've done for you -
50 thousand tears I've cried.
Screaming, deceiving and bleeding for you -
And you still won't hear me.
(going under)
Don't want your hand this time - I'll save myself.
Maybe I'll wake up for once (wake up for once)
Not tormented daily defeated by you
Just when I thought I'd reached the bottom

I'm dying again

I'm going under (going under)
Drowning in you (drowning in you)
I'm falling forever (falling forever)
I've got to break through
I'm going under

Blurring and stirring - the truth and the lies.
(So I don't know what's real) So I don't know what's real and what's not (and what's not)
Always confusing the thoughts in my head
So I can't trust myself anymore

I'm dying again

I'm going under (going under)
Drowning in you (drowning in you)
I'm falling forever (falling forever)
I've got to break through

I'm...

So go on and scream
Scream at me I'm so far away (so far away)
I won't be broken again (again)
I've got to breathe - I can't keep going under

I'm dying again

I'm going under (going under)
Drowning in you (drowning in you)
I'm falling forever (falling forever)
I've got to break through

I'm going under (going under)
I'm going under (drowning in you)
I'm going under

I've got to breathe - I can't keep going under

I found another one, it has some deeper meanings to me. I'm just not sure how to explain how it affects me. It's like the inner child is speaking to me in this song.

Back Where You Belong (Theme From The Water Horse)
Sinťad O'Connor

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJfpSokvI60&feature=related

Oh it's hard to
Be a boy
When
All the men have
Lost their joy
And they can't find the ones they left behind.

Harder still to think
Of being a man
In this world of
No lessons or love,
Itís only war that men be thinking of.

Should you stay
Or should you come down with me?
Is that the question
You are asking of me?
And do you think that you can
Take the answer?
As it turns,
You have to wear life well.

Come down with me,
Come down
When you need me
But for now I want you
To be happy.

Sometimes life does
Things to you
That will hurt you
And confuse you,
But when you're left behind
Youíre sure to find.

I am with you though I can't
Come with you.
I am in you and I'm
Always part of you,
And all you ever have to do
To bring me to you
IsÖ

Come down with me,
Come down
When you need me,
But for now I want you
To be happy.

So you must go back home,
Thatís where you belong.
You must go back home.

You must go back home,
Thatís where you belong.

You must go back home,
And I can't come alongÖ

Hi Michael, thx for your replies.
It seems like Evanescence is back in the market right now, so I'll post a new one.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHhmir7uSic

"Field Of Innocence"

I still remember the world
From the eyes of a child
Slowly those feelings
Were clouded by what I know now

Where has my heart gone
An uneven trade for the real world
Oh I... I want to go back to
Believing in everything and knowing nothing at all

I still remember the sun
Always warm on my back
Somehow it seems colder now

Where has my heart gone
Trapped in the eyes of a stranger
Oh I... I want to go back to
Believing in everything

[Latin hymn:]
Iesu, Rex admirabilis
Et triumphator nobilis,
Dulcedo ineffabilis,
Totus desiderabilis.

Where has my heart gone
An uneven trade for the real world
Oh I... I want to go back to
Believing in everything
Oh, Where

Where has my heart gone
Trapped in the eyes of a stranger
Oh I... I want to go back to
Believing in everything

I still remember.

And another one. I like this one a lot, in the beginning it seems like living between the truth and denying is the best choice, but further on, it seems making the choice to recognise the thruth is the best choice after all.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKgnSjZr8Z0&feature=related

See who I am from Within Temptation

See Who I Am
Is it true what they say?
Are we too blind to find a way?
Fear of the unknown
Clouds our hearts today.

Come into my world,
See through my eyes.
Try to understand,
Don't want to lose what we have.

We've been dreaming
But who can deny?
It's the best way of living
Between the truth and the lies.

[Chorus:]
See who I am,
Break through the surface.
Reach for my hand,
Let's show them that we can
Free our minds and find a way.
The world is in our hands,
This is not the end.

Fear is withering the soul
At the point of no return.
We must be the change we wish to see.

I'll come into your world,
See through your eyes.
I'll try to understand,
Before we lose what we have.

We just can't stop believing
Because we have to try.
We can rise above their truth and their lies.

[Chorus x2]

This is not the end.

I hear their silence
Preaching my blame.
Will our strength remain
If their power reigns?

[Chorus x2]

This is not the end.

The lyrics of this song are real for alot of guys here, I guess, so I thought let's put it on nevertheless it can be described as a depressing song.

"Lonely World" by Limp Bizkit

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VybmTgucZ8&feature=related

When i reminisce ignorance was bliss,
Back in the days where the magic exist
Never be the same as it was, 'cuz the way it was
Just another day in the maze of a myth
Had a lot of fun living life on the run,
Never had a chance to pause to get a better glance
Everything was free and everything was fast
Never even thought it wouldn't last
When you go the mind of a man in the middle
Life is just a big fat riddle, so figure it out
Always thinking that you know
Everything little thing there is to know
But you don't really know, ya know?
It's like love, some people get it
For some it's just a glove that just never fitted
For me it's just a pain in the ass
But i'm addicted to the taste of hopin' it could last
[chorus]
Another day another night inside a lonely world
Another game another fight inside a lonely world
Another wrong another right inside a lonely world
Such a lonely world, such a lonely world
Who's the man (the man in the middle) x4
Maybe i'm a target for people that are bitter
At least i can say that i've never been a quitter
I remember high school, man i hated high school
It was like prison with bullies always putting me down
Just a little skater boy they could pick on
I learned to forgive'em, now i got the balls they can lick on
I loved sneakin' out when my mom was asleep
With my gothic girlfriend makin' love in the creek
With the mind of a man in the middle
It could be the end of the world as we know it
Still i never want it all, and i never want it now
I just want to cruise, if i loose then i'll figure it out
How the times flies, even with the blink of an eye
When you're young you absorb like a sponge in disguise
Then you get a little older and gather your thoughts
It's amazing what you learn
When you've never been taught, ya know?
[chorus]
No matter how hard i can try inside a lonely world
No one can hear me when i cry inside a lonely world
I'll never know the reasons why inside a lonely world
Such a lonely world (such a lonely world)
[x2]
[chorus]

The next song is very graphic and can really trigger, so read/listen at you own risk. Althought I believe it really describes a lot.


GRAPHIC TRIGGERS POSSIBLE

Patrick Wolf: "Childcatcher"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Nlz2DV5b0g

I was still a child when you caught me and tied me to your bed
you gave me shoes and pretty clothes, and i gave you what i had between my legs
Just a rite of passage, you held me down and said
"I'm gonna be your right of passage, so boy you better spread, spread em"

You said.."run run run as fast as you can but you cant run run from the childcatchers hands"
"run run run as fast as you can but you cant, you cant

I wrote your name in my shit across the town to warn the kids of your bloodshed
when i chased you with a burning cross, my mother she wanted you dead

she said "run run run as fast as you can but you cant run run from our law given hand"
she said "run run run as fast as you can but you cant run run from our law given hand"
she said "run run run as fast as you can but you cant run run from our law given hand"
And I said run
I said run
Run, run, run (x4)

you said
"well i've got no time for victims and i don't think it was all that bad
and if you can't run to save yourself well then you deserve to be had
this is the age of constipation, this is the age of martyrdom
I think you even enjoyed it, I think I even saw you come"

Here's a new lyric. The youtube link may not work. I don't know it, because the video isn't allowed in Belgium due to some author-rights, what a crap.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCqIaglNEb8

It's about holding on, when you feel down and alone. Life get's better and you're not alone !!!!

Hold On (by Good Charlotte)

This world, this world is cold
But you donít, you donít have to go
Youíre feeling sad youíre feeling lonely
And no one seems to care
Youíre motherís gone and your father hits you
This pain you cannot bare

But we all bleed the same way as you do
We all have the same things to go thru

Hold on...if you feel like letting go
Hold on...it gets better than you know

Your days you say theyíre way too long
And your nights you canít sleep at all (hold on)
And youíre not sure what youíre waiting for
But you donít want to no more
And youíre not sure what youíre looking for but you donít want to no more

But we all bleed the same way as you do
And we all have the same things to go through

Hold on...if you feel like letting go
Hold on...it gets better than you know

Donít stop looking youíre one step closer
Donít stop searching itís not over...hold on

What are you looking for?
What are you waiting for?
Do you know what youíre doing to me?
Go ahead...what are you waiting for?

Hold on...if you feel like letting go
Hold on...it gets better than you know

Donít stop looking youíre one step closer
Donít stop searching itís not over...

Hold on...if you feel like letting go
Hold on...it gets better than you know...hold on

Here's another lyric.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6sIWwEBsLQ&feature=related

"The Dream Within" (by Lara Fabian)
from the movie Final Fantasy

Free
The dream within
The stars are crying a tear
A sigh
Escapes from heaven
And worlds end
Breathe
The dream within
The mystifying

We tremble and spin
Suspended within

Look beyond
Where hearts can see
Dream in peace
Trust the belief

We tremble and spin
Suspended within

Free
The dream within
The voice is calling a song
A prayer
From deep inside you
To guide you
Be
The dream within
The light is shining

A flight on the wind
Salvation begins

Look beyond
Where hearts can see
Dream in peace
Trust the belief

We tremble and spin
Suspended within

Free
The dream within
The stars are crying
A tear
A sigh
Escapes from heaven
And worlds end

And a new lyric. I really like this one. It's for me a song about growth of me and my inner kid.

Stacey Kent: "Landslide"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jITguAOkRsQ

I took my love and I took it down
I climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
And the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky
What is love ?
Can the child within my heart rise above
Can I sail throught the changing ocean tides
Can I handle the seasons of my life

Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm getting older, too

Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm getting older, too
Yes, I'm getting older, too

Take my love and take it down
Climb a mountain and turn around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well the landslide brought me down

And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well maybe the landslide will bring you down...

Since the last song was such a good one, I'll post an other. Hopefully equally as good. Especially the refrain is so right.

Over The Rine: 'Born"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DG-VFhjL31s

Pour me a glass of wine
Talk deep into the night
Who knows what we'll find

Intuition, deja vu
The Holy Ghost haunting you
Whatever you got
I don't mind

(refrain)
I was born to laugh
I learned to laugh through my tears
I was born to love
I'm gonna learn to love without fear

Put your elbows on the table
I'll listen long as I am able
There's nowhere I'd rather be

Secret fears, the supernatural
Thank God for this new laughter
Thank God the joke's on me

'Caus I was born to laugh
I learned to laugh through my tears
I was born to love
I'm gonna learn to love without fear

We've seen the landfill rainbow
We've seen the junkyard of love
Baby it's no place for you and me

I was born to laugh
I learned to laugh through my tears
I was born to love
I'm gonna learn to love without fear

Because it looks like some are still enjoying this thread, I'll post a new lyric. Just found it today. I hope you'll like it, if not just say so.

Delta Goodrem
"Breathe In, Breathe Out"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkcpHVDiAmk&feature=related

Do you ever wanna run away?
Feel like every day is not your day
Do you ever find yourself out in the cold no were to go
If the world has ever cut you deep
If the scars never seem to heal
If the emptiness is way to much for you all you can do

Just breathe in breathe out that's a moment in your life
Breathe in breathe out itís a wonderful night

Oosí Aahís

No matter where the seasons fall
No matter how the dice will roll

In the end the here and now is all we have donít look back

Just breathe in breathe out that's a moment in your life
Breathe in breathe out itís a wonderful night

Oosí Aahís

A hundred million times [x2]

Ooís Aahís

Just breathe in breathe out that's a moment in your life
Breathe in breathe out itís a wonderful night [x2]

Hi, I have a new lyric, I would like to share with you guys. I'm not really sure why I love it that much, but I do. So here it is:

3 Doors Down: "Kryptonite"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tpl6ncyxLGw

I took a walk around the world
To ease my troubled mind
I left my body laying somewhere
In the sands of time
But I watched the world float
To the dark side of the moon

I feel there is nothing I can do, yeah

I watched the world float
To the dark side of the moon
After all I knew it had to be
Something to do with you
I really donít mind what happens now and then
As long as youíll be my friend at the end

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If Iím alive and well, will you be
There a-holding my hand
Iíll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite

You called me strong, you called me weak,
But still your secrets I will keep
You took for granted all the times
I never let you down
You stumbled in and bumped your head,
If not for me then you'd be dead
I picked you up and put you back
On solid ground

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If Iím alive and well,
Will you be there a-holding my hand
Iíll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If Iím alive and well, will you be there
Holding my hand
Iíll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite
Yeah!!

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I'm alive and well,
Will you be there a-holding my hand
I'll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite
Yeah!!

Hey Gabriel, looks like we have some taste of music in common. smile
I'll add an other lyric, I hope you like this too.

3 Doors Down: "Be Like That"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHpMtWtgUvc

He spent his whole life being to young, {He spends his nights in California,}
To live the life that's in his dreams, {Watching the stars on the big screen,}
At night he lies awake and he wonders, {Then he lies awake and he wonders,}
Why canít that be me
Cause in his life he is filled
With all these good intentions
Heís left a lot of things
Heíd rather not mention right now
But just before he says goodnight,
He looks up with a little smile at me,
And he says,

If I could be like that,
I would give anything
Just to live one day, in those shoes
If I could be like that,
what would I do,
What would I do

Now and dreams we run
She spends her days up in the north park,
Watching the people as they pass
And all she wants is just
A little piece of this dream,
Is that too much to ask
With a safe home, and a warm bed,
On a quiet little street
All she wants is just that something to
Hold onto, thatís all she needs
Yeah!

If I could be like that,
I would give anything
Just to live one day, in those shoes
If I could be like that, what would I do,
What would I do

Iím falling into this, in dreams,
We run away

If I could be like that,
I would give anything
Just to live one day, in those shoes
If I could be like that, what would I do,
What would I do

If I could be like that,
I would give anything
Just to live one day, in those shoes
If I could be like that, what would I do,
What would I do

If I could be like that,
I would give anything
Just to live one day, in those shoes

If I could be like that, what would I do,
What would I do
Falling in
I feel I am falling in, to this again.

[ {} - another version ]

3 Doors Down: "Duck and Run"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epUQTJUDDIs

To this world I'm unimportant
Just because I have nothing to give
So you call this your free country
Tell me why it cost so much to live
Tell me why
This world can turn me down
But I wonít turn away, oh no
I wonít turn around

All my work and endless measures
Never seem to get me very far
Walk a mile just to move an inch
Now even though I'm trying so damn hard
I'm trying so hard

This world can turn me down but I
Wonít turn away
And I wonít duck and run, cause
I'm not built that way
When everything is gone there is
Nothing there to fear
This world cannot bring me down
No cause I'm already here, oh no!
I am already here,
Down on my knees
I am already here, on no, I am
Already here
I must have told you a thousand times,
I am not running away

I wonít duck and run
I wonít duck and run
I wonít duck and run
No pass away
This world can turn me down but I
Wonít turn away
And I wonít duck and run, cause
I'm not built that way
When everything is gone
There is nothing there to fear
This world cannot bring me down
No cause I'm already here
This world can turn me down
But I wonít turn away
And I wonít duck and run
Cause I'm not built that way
When everything is gone there
Is nothing there to fear
This world cannot bring me down
No cause I'm already here

Hey guys, I just stumbled to this song, it's from their new album, which still has to come out. It really is a great song. I think they really sing what everyone of us have thaught at some time of their life or even still think. Worth listening to, but it can be triggering, so if you're not sure, maybe you should read the lyric first before listening to it.

3 Doors Down: "When You're Young"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7h_b-YA5qM

So far away from knowing where I am going
I am trying hard to find out who I am
They all see that I don't know what I am doing
I say they don't hardly understand

Why can't they remember
What I will never forget
How these dreams come undone
When you're young

You give what you give cause they make you
Trapped inside a place that won't take you
And they want you to be what they make you
It's already over and done
When you're young

Everything seems perfect
Everything's okay
And it will all get better now
At least that's what they say
But I don't see it coming

You give what you give cause they make you
Trapped inside a place that won't take you
And they want you to be what they make you
It's already over and done
When you're young

Days really just seem longer
They say it's better this way
I hope one day I am stronger than I feel
And I hope it feels different than today

You give what you give cause they make you
Trapped inside a place that won't take you
And they want you to be what they make you
(It's already over and done) [x3]
When you're young

Why can't they remember
What I will never forget
How these dreams come undone
When you're young

And here's an other one.

Linkin Park: "Easier to Run"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMMS9v8Ogbw

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
The 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)
(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)
(I would take all my shame to the grave)

[Chorus]
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

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'd never be a past

(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)
(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)
(I would take all my shame to the grave)

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

[Chorus]
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

It's easier to run
(If I could change I would take back the pain I would)
(Retrace every wrong move that I made)
It's easier to go
(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)
(I would take all my shame to the grave)

Here's a new post. Those who like "3 Doors Down" will like it a lot.

3 Doors Down: "When I'm Gone"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vn9LZNNeDJk

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

Or maybe I'm just blind...

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

Love me when I'm gone...

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

[Chorus]

Or maybe I'm just blind...

[Chorus]

Love me when I'm gone...

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

3 Doors Down: "Changes"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rH_9tn_qzeM&feature=related

I'm not suposed to be scared of anything, but I don't know where I am
I wish that I could move but I'm exhausted and nobody understands (how I feel)
I'm trying hard to breathe now but there's no air in my lungs
There's no one here to talk to and the pain inside is making me numb

I try to hold this Under control
They can't help me 'Cause no one knows

Now I'm going through changes, changes
God, I feel so frustrated lately
When I get suffocated, save me
Now I'm going through changes, changes

I'm feeling weak and weary walking through this world alone
Everything you say, every word of it, cuts me to the bone
I've got something to say, but now I've got no where to turn
It feels like I've been buried underneath all the weight of the world

I try to hold this Under control
They can't help me 'Cause no one knows

Now I'm going through changes, changes
God, I feel so frustrated lately
When I get suffocated, save me
Now I'm going through changes, changes

I'm blind and shakin'
Bound and breaking
I hope I make it through all these changes

Now I'm going through changes, changes
God, I feel so frustrated lately
When I get suffocated, save me
Now I'm falling apart, now I feel it

But I'm going through changes, changes
God, I feel so frustrated lately
And I get suffocated, I hate this
But I'm going through changes, changes

Hi guys, here's a new lyric, but for a change it's not one of 3 Doors Down, cool
For me the "we" in "realise we are one" resemblance the young child and the current guy as one. The "I had it all" resemblance the time before the abuse started. For the rest I believe this song sais it all.

Alter Bridge: "Open Your Eyes"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4Rp-PEDGdQ

Looking back I clearly see
What it is that's killing me
Through the eyes of one I know
I see a vision once let go
I had it all

Constantly it burdens me
Hard to trust and can't believe
Lost the faith and lost the love
When the day is done

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one
On and on we stand alone
Until our day has come
When they open their eyes
And realize we are one

I love the way I feel today
But how I know the sun will fade
Darker days seem to be
What will always live in me
But still I run

It's hard to walk this path alone
Hard to know which way to go
Will I ever save this day
Will it ever change

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one
On and on we stand alone
Until our day has come
Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one

Still today we carry on
I know our day will come
When they open their eyes
And realize we are one

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one
(its hard to walk this path alone
hard to know which way to go)
Will they open their eyes
and realize we are one
(lost the faith and lost the love when the day is done)

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one

The last few songs were all in the genre of rock, so I thought I put a new one up, which is more classical.

Enya: ďMay It BeĒ
From ďThe Lord of the Rings I: The Fellowship of the RingĒ
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-anrM9wl0T8&feature=related

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk a lonely road
Oh! How far you are from home

Mornie utķliŽ (darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantiŽ (darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadows call
Will fly away
May it be you journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornie utķliŽ (darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantiŽ (darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

A promise lives within you now

Hey guys, here's an other lyric from a Disney movie.
For me it's a song of hope.
Maybe there's a better version of this youtube-link. But for me are the words in this song the most important.

Eternal: "Someday"
From "The Hunchback of Notre Dame"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L412MrSxgD4&feature=related

Someday
When we are wiser
When the world's older
When we have learned
I pray
Someday we may yet live
To live and let live
Someday
Life will be fairer
Need will be rarer
Greed will not pay
God speed
This bright millenium
On its way
Let it come
Someday

Someday
Our fight will be won then
We'll stand in the sun then
That bright afternoon
Till then
On days when the sun is gone
We'll hang on
Wish upon the moon

There are some days dark and bitter
Seems we haven't got a prayer
But a prayer for someday better
Is the one thing we all share

Someday
When we are wiser
When the world's older
When we have learned
I pray
Someday we may yet live
To live and let live
Someday
Life will be fairer
Need will be rarer
Greed wil not pay
God speed
This bright millenium
Let it come
Wish upon the moon
One day
Someday
Soon.

It's been a while since I posted a new lyric. Here's an other one of Bryan Adams. Allthought it's meant as a lovesong to the Horse "Spirit". As seen in the movie Spirit - Stallion of the Cimarron.

I read it slightly different.
For me it's about the love and the acceptance for the little boy inside. Where do I have to put you? Which space do I have to give the little boy in me? As long as I don't know, I'm going round in circles. Only by letting you be part of me, I will be free.

I'm still thinking about this song though.


Bryan Adams: "Nothing I've Ever Known"
As used in the movie: "Spirit - Stallion of the Cimarron"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RIur4uHF_c&feature=related

Right now I feel - just like a leaf on a breeze
Who knows where it's blowin'
Who knows where it's goin'
I find myself somewhere I - I never thought I'd be
Going round in circles
Thinking about you and me
How do I explain it when I don't know what to say
What do I do now - so much has changed

Nothing I have ever known - has made me feel this way
Nothing I have ever seen - has made me want to stay
but here I am - ready for you
I'm turnin', I'm fallin' - I hear my home callin'
Hey - I've never felt somethin's so strong - oh no
It's like nothing I've ever known

Now you're the one I'm looking for
You're the one I need
You're the one that gives me - a reason to believe
Following a star - has lead to where you are
It feels so stong now - this can't be wrong now

Hey guys, it's been a while since I posted some lyrics. But I just found an other song I really like. I hope you guys like it.

The meaning of this song for me is more or less something like this:
In the first paragraph I speak myself, all of the following paragraphs it's my inner child crying out to me.
My inner child is requesting me to release him now from all the quilt and all the shame. He waited long enough. So please just let "little me" be who he always was going to be. And ultimately just let "little me" out from the cell or compartment I tried to keep him in. In order to prevent me from behaving like I really am without the walls and the defensive structures all around me. In the beginning it looked "smart" to leaving him behind and picking him up once it would have been safe again. It's just that it never looks the right time, and in the end I never really intended to pick him up anyway.

I know it's not written down easily. What I really wanted to tell was in short: my inner child has been locked up long enough and wants to be free.

3 Doors Down: "Let Me Be Myself"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pk8z0getxM

I guess i just got lost
Bein' someone else
I tried to kill the pain
Nothin ever helped
I left myself behind
Somewhere along the way
Hopin to come back around
To find myself someday

Lately i'm so tired of waiting for you
To say that it's ok, but tell me
Please, would you one time
Just let me be myself
So i can shine with my own light
Let me be myself
Would you let me be myself

I'll never find my heart
Behind someone else
I'll never see the light of day
Living in this cell
It's time to make my way
Into the world i knew
Take back all of these times
That i gave in to you

Lately i'm so tired of waiting for you
To say that it's ok, but tell me
Please, would you one time
Let me be myself
So i can shine with my own light
And let me be myself
For a while, if you don't mind
Let me be myself
So i can shine with my own light
Let me be myself

That's all i've ever wanted from this world
Is to let me be me

Please would you one time
Let me be myself
So i can shine with my own light
Let me be myself
Please would you one time
Let me be myself
So i can shine with my own light
Let me be myself
For a while, if you don't mind
Let me be myself
So i can shine with my own light
Let me be myself
Would you one time... oooh
Let me be myself
Let me be me

This song resembles quite well how I feel right now and the past days/weeks.

3 Doors Down: "It's The Only One You've Got"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIm3EspcZS0

How do you know where you're going
When you don't know where you've been
You hide the shame that you're not showing
And you won't let anyone in
A crowded street can be a quiet place
When you're walking alone
And now you think that you're the only
One who doesn't

[Chorus:]
Have to try
And you won't have to fail
If you're afraid to fly
Then i guess you never will
You hide behind your walls
Of maybe nevers
Forgetting that there's something more
Than just knowing better
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you're not
You've got to live this life you're given
Like it's the only one you've got

Memories have left you broken
And the scars have never healed
The emptiness in you is growing
But so little left to fill
You're scared to look back on the days before
You're too tired to move on
And now you think that you're the only one who doesn't

[Chorus]

What would it take
To get you to say that I'll try
And what would you say if
This was the last day of your life

You hide behind your walls
Of maybe nevers
Forgetting that there's something more
Than just knowing better
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you're not
You've got to live this life you're given
Like it's the only one you've got

You hide behind your walls
Of maybe nevers
Forgetting that there's something more
Than just knowing better
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you're not
You've got to live this life you're given
Like it's the only one you've got

Here's an other song I like a lot.

3 Doors Down: "Back To Me"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giI569NiShg

"Back To Me"

I have poured out my heart,
And laid it right here for you,
And I've tried so hard,
That's the best that I can do,
Please understand I am not who I was,

You used to be all that I had,
Now you're just not what I need,
I've got to get over you and I know,
Then I can get back to me.

Tears forget, that's more than I can do,
'Cause they don't wash away,
All the things that we've been through,
I've put behind me my share of the shame,
We could call villains but it's all in vain.

You used to be all that I had,
Now you're just not what I need,
I've got to get over you and I know,
Then I can get back to me.

All of my life I've waited hoping,
Wanting you to see me the way that I am,
But now I know, that I'm not alone
Someone understands

You used to be all that I had,
Now you're just not what I need,
I've got to get over you and I know,
Then I can get back to me.

You've got to know that

You used to be all that I had,
Now you're just not what I need,
I've got to get over you and I know,
Then I can get back to me.

Then I can get back to me,
(Then I can get back to me)
Then I can get back to me

Long time ago, that I posted a lyric, so here it goes.

Within Temptation: "Empty Eyes"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QOdVHFtwcI

"Empty Eyes"

Youíre determined by faith
You pretend to make up
You lay out your case like the enemy
But all that you got
through dirty white lies
Canít find the damned correct way of blaming me
for your crimes
Wonít you talk to me
Donít laugh and run away
Iím onto you, yesterday
with empty eyes

I donít know where Iím going
in search for answers
I donít know who Iím fighting
I stand with empty eyes
Youíre like a ghost within me
whoís draining my life
Itís like my soul is seen through
Right through my empty eyes
Right through my empty eyes

Iím about to give in
Got nowhere to go
Afraid of the sense Iím holding on
Thereís no other way
No doubt in the end
But I ainít got a thing to lose
Nothing to defend
Wonít you talk to me
Donít laugh and run away
Iím onto you, yesterday
With empty eyes

I donít know where Iím going
In search for answers
I donít know who Iím fighting
I stand with empty eyes
Youíre like a ghost within me
whoís draining my life
Itís like my soul is seen through
Right through my empty eyes
Ohh, ohh please wonít you give in to me
Wonít you finally speak true from lie

Youíre determined by faith
You pretend to make up
You lay out your case like the enemy
Like the enemy

With empty eyes
I donít know where Iím going
in search for answers
I donít know who Iím fighting
I stand with empty eyes
Youíre like a ghost within me
whoís draining my life
Itís like my soul is seen through
Right through my empty eyes
Right through my empty eyes.

Within Temptation: "I Don't Wanna"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFfwUdTrJAc

"I Don't Wanna"

Iím on a road of broken dreams
And I need to know why
Seek the truth through lies to be my guide
Iím in a world of doubt and trust
Canít deny

I lost my way here in this quest, canít lie
I canít believe what's happening, I donít know what to say
I can't believe I left to see this day

I donít wanna live this way, it haunts my mind
And I just need to get it straight, stop wasting time
And I donít wanna live and feel that I can change whats right
But I know, weíll be living in a lie

Oh Iíll be hanging on the cross
When I put the nails in
Itís time to choose a road that we believe in
You say you understand it all, try and smile
If only I could see itís true somehow

I canít believe whats happening
I donít know what to say
And what I wouldnít give to change our fate
I donít wanna live this way, it haunts my mind
And I just need to get it straight, stop wasting time
And I donít wanna live and feel that I can change what's right

But I know, weíll be living in a lie
And Iíve tried so hard to hold on
But I keep on falling
And no matter how hard I run
I just keep returning
And Iím back to where I started from

I donít wanna live this way, it haunts my mind
And I just need to get it straight, stop wasting time
I donít wanna live this way ,it haunts my mind
And I just need to get it straight, stop wasting time
And I donít wanna live and feel that I can change what's right
But I know, weíll be living in a lie

Here's an other song.
I interpretate these lyrics as like they were said to our perps.

Linkin Park: "Points of Authority"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29lCbTYZ8...F2E8AC9303C1360

"Points of Authority"

Forfeit the game
Before somebody else
Takes you out of the frame
And puts your name to shame
Cover up your face
You can't run the race
The pace is too fast
You just won't last

You love the way I look at you
While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me through
You take away when I give in
My life
My pride is broken

[Chorus:]
You like to think you're never wrong
(You live what you've learned)
You have to act like you're someone
(You live what you've learned)
You want someone to hurt like you
(You live what you've learned)
You want to share what you have been through
(You live what you've learned)

You love the things I say I'll do
The way I hurt myself again just to get back at you
You take away when I give in
My life
My pride is broken

[Chorus]

Forfeit the game
Before somebody else
Takes you out of the frame
And puts your name to shame
Cover up your face
You can't run the race
The pace is too fast
You just won't last

[Chorus]

[Chorus:]
You like to think you're never wrong Ė Forfeit the game
(You live what you've learned)
You have to act like you're someone Ė Forfeit the game
(You live what you've learned)
You want someone to hurt like you Ė Forfeit the game
(You live what you've learned)
You want to share what you have been through
(You live what you've learned)

Hey guys, it's been already a while again, so I thought I really had to put down an other possibly inspiring song.

For me it's about my inner child again. The "you" in this song is "little me" while the "I" is the "current me". The cruel wanting speaks about the "normal life", "a family", "children",... all what is ordinary to others but for me is just a "cruel wanting".

But of course your interpretation can be totally different. I hope you like this one, and till later.

Evanescence: "Lost In Paradise"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5fcVMZXkU0&feature=related

"Lost In Paradise"

I've been believing in something so distant
As if I was human
And I've been denying this feeling of hopelessness
In me, in me

All the promises I made
Just to let you down
You believed in me, but I'm broken

I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting

We've been falling for all this time
And now I'm lost in paradise

As much as I'd like the past not to exist
It still does
And as much as I'd like to feel like I belong here
I'm just as scared as you

I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting

We've been falling for all this time
And now I'm lost in paradise

Run away, run away
One day we won't feel this pain anymore

Take it all away
Shadows of you
Cause they won't let me go

Until I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting

We've been falling for all this time
And now I'm lost in paradise

Alone, and lost in paradise

john22, when I heard this song one verse stuck in my mind, and it felt so perfect, so I got it tattooed onto my forearm.
"As Much As I'd Like The Past Not To Exist, It Still Does"

Hi guys

Here's an other one. It's rather a calm one now, but still I really like it. It's from an artist I just discovered. I hope you'll like it.

Mogwai: "Hound of Winter"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4oA7MQPALI

"Hound of Winter"

Where did it go?
I don't know

Where is it now?
Where is it now?

Time hides things
Lies hide things
I hide things
I lose things

Where did it go?
I don't know

Where has it gone?
Where has it gone?

Time hides things
Lies hide things
I lose things
I break things

I forget

I fall away

I'm tired...

I'm tired...

Linkin Park: "Runaway"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbmyGE2to7Q

"Runaway"

Graffiti decorations
Under a sky of dust
A constant wave of tension
On top of broken trust
The lessons that you taught me
I learn were never true
Now I find myself in question
(They point the finger at me again)
Guilty by association
(You point the finger at me again)

I wanna run away
Never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth
Instead of wondering why
I wanna know the answers
No more lies
I wanna shut the door
And open up my mind

Paper bags and angry voices
Under a sky of dust
Another wave of tension
Has more than filled me up
All my talk of taking action
These words were never true
Now I find myself in question
(They point the finger at me again)
Guilty by association
(You point the finger at me again)

I wanna run away
Never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth
Instead of wondering why
I wanna know the answers
No more lies
I wanna shut the door
And open up my mind

i'm gonna run away and never say goodbye
(gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away)
i'm gonna run away and never wonder why
(gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away)
i'm gonna run away and open up my mind
(gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away)

I wanna run away
Never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth
Instead of wondering why
I wanna know the answers
No more lies
I wanna shut the door
And open up my mind

i wanna run away
and open up my mind
i wanna run away
and open up my mind
i wanna run away
and open up my mind
i wanna run away
and open up my mind

Linkin Park: "By Myself"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AP_L61-Dls4

"By Myself"

What do I do to ignore them behind me?
Do I follow my instincts blindly?
Do I hide my pride from these bad dreams?
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?
Do I sit here and try to stand it?
Or do I try to catch them red-handed?
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness,
Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?
Because I can't hold on when I'm stretched so thin
I make the right moves but I'm lost within
I put on my daily facade but then
I just end up getting hurt again
By myself [myself]

[x2]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I canít rely on myself

[Chorus:]
I canít hold on
To what I want when Iím stretched so thin
Itís all too much to take in
I canít hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in

If I
Turn my back Iím defenseless
And to go blindly seems senseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on then theyíll
Take from me Ďtill everything is gone
If I let them go Iíll be outdone
But if I try to catch them Iíll be outrun
If Iím killed by the questions like a cancer
Then Iíll be buried in the silence of the answer
by myself [myself]

[x2]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I canít rely on myself

[Chorus]

How do you think Iíve lost so much
I'm so afraid that I'm out of touch
How do you expect... I will know what to do
When all I know Is what you tell me to

[x2]
Donít you know
I canít tell you how to make it go
No matter what I do, how hard I try
I canít seem to convince myself why
Iím stuck on the outside

[Chorus x2]

Linkin Park: "Leave out all the rest"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBTXNPZPfbE

"Leave out all the rest"

I dreamed I was missing
You were so scared
But no one would listen
'Cause no one else cared

After my dreaming
I woke with this fear
What am I leaving
When I'm done here?

So if you're asking me
I want you to know

[Chorus]
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed
And don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Don't be afraid
I've taken my beating
I've shared what I've made
I'm strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I've never been perfect
But neither have you

So if you're asking me
I want you to know

[Chorus]
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed
Don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting all the hurt inside
You've learned to hide so well
Pretending someone else can come
And save me from myself
I can't be who you are

[Chorus]
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed
Don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting all the hurt inside
You've learned to hide so well
Pretending someone else can come
And save me from myself
I can't be who you are
I can't be who you are

Linkin Park: "From The Inside"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLHpvjrFpe0

"From The Inside"

I donít know who to trust no surprise
(Everyone feels so far away from me)
Heavy thoughts sift through dust and the lies
(Trying not to break but Iím so tired of this deceit)
(Every time I try to make myself get back up on my feet)
(All I ever think about is this)
(All the tiring time between)
(And how trying to put my trust in you just takes so much out of me)

[Chorus]
Take everything from the inside and throw it all away
Cuz I swear for the last time I wonít trust myself with you

Tension is building inside steadily
(Everyone feels so far away from me)
Heavy thoughts forcing their way out of me
(Trying not to break but Iím so tired of this deceit)
(Every time I try to make myself get back up on my feet)
(All I ever think about is this)
(All the tiring time between)
(And how trying to put my trust in you just takes so much out of me)

[Chorus]
Take everything from the inside and throw it all away
Cuz I swear for the last time I wonít trust myself with you

I wonít waste myself on you
You
You
Waste myself on you
You
You

Iíll take everything from the inside and throw it all away
Cuz I swear for the last time I wonít trust myself with you

Everything from the inside and just throw it all away
Cuz I swear for the last time I wonít trust myself with you
You
You

Easier to run by LP is my favourite smile but Leave out all the rest is right behind.

This is a song called "I Know" by a singer-songwriter named Jude. This song has helped me through many different struggles and I thought this would be a good place to share it.

Jude - "I Know"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3bRxwHzIxA

You've got such a pretty smile
It's a shame the things you hide behind it
Let 'em go
Give it up for a while
Let 'em free and we will both go find it

I know there's nowhere you can hide it
I know the feeling of alone
I know that you do not feel invited
But, come back, come back in from the cold

Step away then from the edge
Your best friend in life is not your mirror
Back away, come
Back away, come
Back away, come
Back away, come
Back away, come
Back away...
I am here and I will be forever and ever and I ...

I know that there's nowhere you can hide it
I know the feeling of alone
Trust me and don't keep that on the inside
Soon you'll be locked out on your own

You're not alone

You're not alone

And don't say you've never been told
I'll be with you 'til we grow old
'Til I'm in the ground and I'm cold
I'm not sitting up here on some throne
I'll be with you 'til we grow up young
Like a dog you can always come home
Dig up a bone
Look around Down baby downtown
Don't throw me to the pound..

Hi Rycardo

Thx for such a nice lyric/song, I understand why it's so helpful through the many difficult struggles on the path of healing.

Here's another one from
Coldplay: "Us Against The World"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OUL23uBFlw&feature=fvwrel

"Us Against The World"

Oh morning come bursting the clouds, Amen.
Lift off this blindfold, let me see again.
And bring back the water, let your ships roll in, in my heart, she left a hole.

The tightrope that I'm walking just sways and ties.
The devil, as he's talking, with those angel's eyes.
And I just wanna be there when the lightning strikes.
And the saints go marching in

And sing slow it down,
Through chaos as it swirls,
It's us against the world.

Like a river to a raindrop,
I lost a friend.
My drunken has a Daniel in a lion's den.
And tonight I know it all has to begin again,
So whatever you do,
Don't let go.

And if we could float away,
Fly up to the surface and just start again.
And lift off before trouble just erodes us in the rain
Just erodes us in the rain
Just erodes us and see roses in the rain

Sing slow it down
Slow it down

Through chaos as it swirls,
It's us against the world.
Through chaos as it swirls,
It's us against the world

Hayley Westenra: "Listen to the Wind"
(soundtrack from the movie "The New World")
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nq-X70DRrA

"Listen To The Wind"

Time is a river that flows endlessly
And a life is a whisper, a kiss in a dream

Shadows dance behind the firelight
And all the spirits of the night remind us:
We are not alone

Tomorrow: a sun soon rising
And yesterday is there beside us
And it's never far away

If you listen to the wind you can hear me again
Even when I'm gone you can still hear the song
High up in the trees as it moves through the leaves
Listen to the wind, there's no end to my...

Love is forever a circle unbroken
The seasons keep changing; it always remains

Spring will melt the snows of winter
And the summer gives us days of light
So long till autumn makes them fade

Remember the sound of laughter
We ran together through the meadows
Still we thought our hearts could break

If you listen to the wind, you can hear me again
Even when I'm gone you can still hear the song
High up in the trees as it moves through the leaves
Listen to the wind and I'll send you my love

Listen to the wind where the sky meets the land
I'm not really gone I've been here all along
High up in the trees in the sound of the leaves
Listen to the wind there's no end to my...

Time is a river that flows to the sea
And a life is a whisper, a kiss in a dream

What's wrong dear brother, have you lost your faith
Don't you remember a better place
Needles and things have done you in

Like the setting sun
Oh, dear brother, trouble weighs a ton

What's wrong dear sister, did your world fall down
Did men misuse you and push you around
It's the same story dear, year after year

Pathetic men run
Oh, dear sister, trouble weighs a ton

Trouble in the air, trouble's all I see
Does anybody care, trouble's killing me
Oh, it's killing me...

What's wrong dear mother, has your child disobeyed
And left you hurting in so many ways
What once was sweet, is sorrow and grief

That cannot be undone
Oh, dear mother, trouble weighs a ton

thx George for this nice song/lyric, here's another one from me:

Enya: "Evening Falls..."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCfmBumHNSQ

"Evening Falls"

When the evening falls
and the daylight is fading
From within me calls
Could it be I am sleeping?
For a moment I stray
then it holds me completely
Close to home, I cannot say
Close to home, feeling so far away

As I walk the room
there before me a shadow
From another world
where no other can follow
Carry me to my own
To where I can cross over...
Close to home, I cannot say
Close to home, feeling so far away

Forever searching, never right
I am lost in oceans of night
Forever hoping I can find memories
Those memories I left behind

Even though I leave
will I go on believing
that this time is real
- am I lost in this feeling?
Like a child passing through
Never knowing the reason
I am home, I know the way
I am home, feeling oh, so far away

It's been a while, here's a new one, I guess you will know it all.

Metallica: "Nothing Else Matters"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAsA00-5KoI

"Nothing Else Matters"

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No nothing else matters

3 Doors Down: "There's a Life"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KRngBigRLA

"There's a Life"

When the days all seem to count for nothing
Is the hope that I hold onto now gonna count for something?
When the nights all feel like they're running together
That's when I keep on dreaming about things getting better forever
All the days that come and go
Across the miles so far from home
All I find: roads that ramble on and on and on

Chorus
There's a life, there's a life that I'm missin
So much more than I can see
There's a life, there's a life that I'm chasin
That always stays one step ahead of me

Out of reach but I know that I'm gettin closer
I believe that as long as I breathe that the dream's never over
Inside myself I try to find a way to keep this hope alive
I hold the line that keeps me haning on and on and on

Chorus

There's a life, there's a life
There's a life, there's a life I see
There's a life, there's a life
There's a life, there's a life for me

Chorus

Evanescence: "Secret Door"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yduEHD_gZHA

"Secret Door"

Turn out the lights
Feed the fire
'Til my soul breathes free
My heart is high
As the waves above me

Don't need to understand
Too lost to lose
Don't fight my tears
'Cause they feel so good

And I, I will remember how to fly
Unlock the heavens in my mind
Follow my love back
Through the same secret door

Look past the end
It's a dream
As it's always been
All life lives on
If we've ever loved it

And I, I will remember how to fly
Unlock the heavens in my mind
Follow my love back
Through the same secret door

I, I will remember how to fly
Unlock the heavens in my mind
Follow my love back
Through the same secret door

Krezip: "Won't cry"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRCIK3Tm_CU

"Won't Cry"

You hoped that if you'd forget your memories
That they'd forget you too
You'd put a bandage on your aching spot
And that will make you feel good
I think someone should have told you that
This ain't the way it works
And that you have to work it out some day
You will, yeah

It takes you further everytime
It will make you sweat like hell
You just can't keep gnashing your teeth forever

Won't cry, why wouldn't you
No, won't let them get to you
Won't cry
And if anyone will try to tell you that
This ain't, no no
This ain't, no
It ain't the way it works
They're wrong, they're wrong, so wrong

Well you've done enough to prove us all
Won't let them get you down
But now i think the moment's here
To show yourself your weaknesses
I see you figured out by now
This ain't the way that things go
And the time has come to work it out
You will, yeah

It takes you further everytime
It will make you sweat like hell
You just can't keep gnashing your teeth forever

Won't cry, why wouldn't you
No, won't let them get to you
Won't cry
And if anyone will try to tell you that
This ain't, no no
This ain't, no
It ain't the way it works
They're wrong, they're wrong, so wrong (no, no, no, no)

You won't cry, won't cry, i know
You won't cry, won't cry, won't let them get to you
Won't cry, won't cry, ooh no
You won't cry, yeah

You won't cry, why wouldn't you
No, won't let them get to you
Won't cry
And if anyone will try to tell you that
This ain't, no no
This ain't, no
This ain't the way it works
They're wrong, they're wrong, so wrong (no, no, no, no)

It's been a while since I posted a 'new' song. So here's another one I like. Although the text can trigger, I really like the following part of the song:
"The world we knew
Won't come back
The time we've lost
Can't get back
The life we had
Won't be ours again

This world will never be
What I expected
And if I don't belong"


Three Days Grace: "Never Too Late"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qOvNgEsZ9s

"Never Too Late"

This world will never be
What I expected
And if I don't belong
Who would have guessed it
I will not leave alone
Everything that I own
To make you feel like it's not too late
It's never too late

Even if I say
It'll be alright
Still I hear you say
You want to end your life
Now and again we try
To just stay alive
Maybe we'll turn it all around
'Cause it's not too late
It's never too late

No one will ever see
This side reflected
And if there's something wrong
Who would have guessed it
And I have left alone
Everything that I own
To make you feel like
It's not too late
It's never too late

Even if I say
It'll be alright
Still I hear you say
You want to end your life
Now and again we try
To just stay alive
Maybe we'll turn it all around
'Cause it's not too late
It's never too late

The world we knew
Won't come back
The time we've lost
Can't get back
The life we had
Won't be ours again

This world will never be
What I expected
And if I don't belong

Even if I say
It'll be alright
Still I hear you say
You want to end your life
Now and again we try
To just stay alive
Maybe we'll turn it all around
'Cause it's not too late
It's never too late
Maybe we'll turn it all around
'Cause it's not too late
It's never too late (It's never too late)
It's not too late
It's never too late

And an other song, which really reflects the strength we all possess once we know we don't have to hide at all.

Three Days Grace: "Riot"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtjUc5GXY3E

"Riot"

If you feel so empty
So used up, so let down
If you feel so angry
So ripped off so stepped on
You're not the only one
Refusing to back down
You're not the only one
So get up

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot
Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

If you feel so filthy
So dirty so fucked up
If you feel so walked on
So painful so pissed off
You're not the only one
Refusing to go down
You're not the only one
So get up

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot
Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

If you feel so empty
So used up, so let down
If you feel so angry
Just get up

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot
Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

30 Seconds To Mars: ďA Beautiful LieĒ
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Kvd-uquuhI

"A Beautiful Lie"

Lie awake in bed at night
And think about your life
Do you want to be different?
Try to let go of the truth
The battles of your youth
'Cause this is just a game

[Chorus:]
It's a beautiful lie
It's the perfect denial
Such a beautiful lie to believe in
So beautiful, beautiful it makes me

It's time to forget about the past
To wash away what happened last
Hide behind an empty face
Don't ask too much, just say
'Cause this is just a game

[Chorus]

(Oh Oh
The end of the world)

Everyone's looking at me
I'm running around in circles, baby
A quiet desperation's building higher
I've got to remember this is just a game

(So beautiful, beautiful
It's a beautiful lie
So beautiful, beautiful
It's a beautiful lie
So beautiful, beautiful...)

[Chorus]

Foo Fighters: ďThe PretenderĒ
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBjQ9tuuTJQ

"The Pretender"

Keep you in the dark
You know they all pretend
Keep you in the dark
And so it all began

Send in your skeletons
Sing as their bones go marching in... again
The need you buried deep
The secrets that you keep are ever ready
Are you ready?
I'm finished making sense
Done pleading ignorance
That whole defense

Spinning infinity, boy
The wheel is spinning me
It's never-ending, never-ending
Same old story

[Chorus (x2):]
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?

In time or so I'm told
I'm just another soul for sale... oh, well
The page is out of print
We are not permanent
We're temporary, temporary
Same old story

[Chorus x2]

I'm the voice inside your head
You refuse to hear
I'm the face that you have to face
Mirrored in your stare
I'm what's left, I'm what's right
I'm the enemy
I'm the hand that will take you down
Bring you to your knees

So who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?

Keep you in the dark
You know they all pretend

[Chorus x2]

[x2]
What if I say I'm not like the others?
(Keep you in the dark)
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
(You know they all... pretend)
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?

So who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?

Breaking Benjamin: "Forget It"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFxnNAD2q1M

"Forget It"

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 wanna stay
By the time I lose it I'm not afraid
I'm 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

Just fade away
Please let me stay
Caught in your way

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

Here's a song I really like to sing when I'm in a bad mood or feeling sad.... It has some tremendous sadness in it but a good ending.

"Objects in the Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are," by Jim Steinman. Numerous versions on YouTube performed by Meat Loaf, almost all excellent.

The skies were pure and the fields were green
The sun was brighter than it's ever been
When I grew up with my best friend Kenny
We were close as any brothers that you ever knew

It was always summer and the future called
We were ready for adventures and we wanted them all
There was so much left to dream
And so much time to make it real

But I can still recall the sting of all
The tears when he was gone
They said he crashed and burned, I know I'll never learn
Why any boy should die so young

We were racing we were soldiers of fortune
We got in trouble and we sure got around
There are times I think I see him peeling out of the dark
I think he's right behind me now and he's gaining ground

(Chorus)
But it was long ago and it was far away
Oh God it seems so very far
But since life is just a highway
Then the soul is just a car...

And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are (repeat 3 more times)

And when the sun descended and the night arose
I heard my father cursing everyone he knows
He was dangerous and drunk and defeated
And corroded by failure and envy and hate

And there were endless winters and the dreams would freeze
Nowhere to hide and no leaves on the trees
And my father's eyes were blank
As he hit me again and again and again

I know I still believe he'd never let me leave
I had to run away, alone
So many threats and tears so many wasted years
Until I called my life my own

And though the nightmares should be over
Some of the terrors are still intact
I hear that ugly, coarse and violent voice
And then he grabs me from behind and then he pulls me back

(To Chorus)

(Here follows the angriest and most sorrowful, but AWESOME, instrumental break I've ever heard....)

There was a beauty living on the edge of town
She always put the top up and the hammer down
And she taught me everything I'll ever know
About the mystery and the muscle of love

Stars would glimmer and the moon would glow
I'm in the back seat with my Julie like a Romeo
And the signs along the highway all said
Caution! Kids at Play!

Those were the Rites of Spring and we did everything
There was salvation every night
We got our dreams reborn and our upholstery torn
And everything we tried was right

She used my body just like a bandage
She used her body just like a wound
I guess I'll never know why she disappeared
But I can see her rising up out of the back seat now
Just like an angel rising up from a tomb

(To Chorus)

And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are
Objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are
Objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are
Objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are

Thousands Foot Krutch: "Be Somebody"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDZdpHFhj6s

"Be Somebody"

Iím just the boy inside the man, not exactly who you think I am
Trying to trace my steps back here again so many times
Iím just a speck inside your hand, you came and made me who I am
I remember where it all began so clearly

I feel a million miles away, still you connect me in your way
And you create in me something I wouldíve never seen

When I could only see the floor, you made my window a door
So when they say they donít believe, I hope that they see you in me

After all the lights go down, Iím just the words you are the sound
A strange type of chemistry, how youíve become a part of me
And when I sit alone at night, your thoughts burn through me like a fire
Youíre the only one who knows who I really am.

We all wanna be somebody, we just need a taste of who we are.
We all wanna be somebody, weíre willing to go but not that far.

And weíre all see through, just like glass
And we can shatter just as fast
That lightís been burned out for a while,
I still see it every time I pass
It was lost in the corners of my mind,
Behind a box of reasons why
I never doubted it was there,
It just took a little time to find and even when...

I feel a million miles away, still you connect me in your way
And you create in me something I wouldíve never seen

When I could only see the floor, you made my window a door
So when they say they donít believe I hope that they see you in me

After all the lights go down, Iím just the words you are the sound
A strange type of chemistry, how youíve become a part of me
And when I sit alone at night, your thoughts burn through me like a fire
Youíre the only one who knows who I really am

We all wanna be somebody, we just need a taste of who we are
We all wanna be somebody, weíre willing to go but not that far
We all wanna be somebody, we just need a taste of who we are
We all wanna be somebody, weíre willing to go but not that far

Iím just the boy inside the man, not exactly who you think I am
Trying to trace my steps back here again so many times

When I could only see the floor, you made my window a door
So when they say they donít believe, I hope that they see you in me

Kelly Clarkson: "Because Of You"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTTjLxXFg0k

"Because Of You"

I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself
Cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did,
You fell so hard
I've learned the hard way
To never let it get that far

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I watched you die
I heard you cry every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry in the middle of the night
For the same damn thing

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I try my hardest just to forget everything
Because of you
I don't know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty
Because of you
I am afraid

Because of you
Because of you

Recently saw this song suggested on my iTunes account. Crap, I remember listening to it in my teens (the version on Live Bullet) and thinking this is about ME!!!! Now I wonder, how did Apple know?? ;-)

Beautiful Loser - Bob Seger

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EM-8QNkqx4M&feature=kp

He wants to dream like a young man
With the wisdom of an old man
He wants his home and security
He wants to live like a sailor at sea

Beautiful loser
Where you gonna fall?
When you realize
You just can't have it all

He's your oldest and your best friend
If you need him, he'll be there again
He's always willing to be second-best
A perfect lodger, a perfect guest

Beautiful loser
Read it on the wall
And realize
You just can't have it all
You just can't have it all

You just can't have it all
Ohh, ohh, can't have it all
You can try, you can try, but you can't have it all
Oh yeah

He'll never make any enemies, enemies, no
He won't complain if he's caught in a freeze
He'll always ask, he'll always say please

Beautiful loser
Never take it all
'Cause it's easier
And faster when you fall

You just don't need it all
You just don't need it all
You just don't need it all
Just don't need it all

They Looked Like Strong Hands
by Bayside

(the writer wrote this song about life as a musician, but when I listen to it I think of it as being about how quickly I can change . . . whether due to being triggered or my bipolar or anxiety or self-esteem issues)

This isn't who I am.
From confidence to self doubt in 60 seconds.
Storming stages and stereos from here to there,
trying to prove that I belong.
Trying to win approval from people that I don't know.

And I look so strong
when the weight of all the world
don't take it's toll.
And I'd choose my sides
if I believed in what was right,
but I'm all wrong.

I'm not larger than life, I'm not taller than trees.
Do I mean what I say?
Is it just this disease?
I never go home,
Never telling the truth how this life eats away.
Not admitting I'm fake
and I'm questioning whether this whole thing was worth it
to die poor and all alone...

And I look so strong
when the weight of all the world
don't take it's toll.
And I'd choose my sides
if I believed in what was right,
but I'm all wrong.

Just don't tell me this doesn't mean the world,
'cause my ears would bleed and my heart would hit the floor.

And I look so strong
when the weight of all the world
don't take it's toll.
And I'd choose my sides
if I believed in what was right,
but I'm all wrong.
_________________________
Like a spent gladiator
crawling in the colosseum dust
who can count on his remaining limbs
all the people he can trust.
Like the one who stands behind him
cheering him on
Estatic when he stands defiant,
wild with abandon when he's gone

just stay alive.
do whatever you need to.
you are worth it.

Jason Walker: "What If I Told You"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hj50BVJ8p9Y

"What if I told you"

What if I told you
Who I really was
What if I let you in on my charade?

What if I told you
What was really going on
No more masks and no more parts to play

There's so much I want to say
But I'm so scared to give away
Every little secret that I hide behind
Would you see me differently?
And would that be such a bad thing
I wonder what it would be like
If I told you

What if I told you
That's its just a front
To hide the insecurities I have

What if I told you
That I'm not as strong
As I like to make believe I am

There's so much I want to say
But I'm so scared to give away
Every little secret that I hide behind
Would you see me differently?
And would that be such a bad thing
I wonder what it would be like
If I told you

Oh if I told you

There's so much I want to say
But I'm so scared to give away
Every little secret that I hide behind
Oh would you see me differently?
And would that be such a bad thing
I wonder what it would be like
If I told you

What if I told you
What would it be like
What would it be like
If I told you
Oh what if I told you
Oh I wonder what it would be like
If I told you

Jason Walker: "Hope You Found It Now"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmAUio9tafk&list=RDax0cYNWSOlI

"Hope You Found It Now"

What was it that got broken inside of you
That sent you off searchin' down empty avenues?
Rooms cold and smoky that you stumbled through
Looking for a little truth somehow

I hope you found it now
I hope you found it now

And what was it inside you that love never satisfied?
The thin thread that held you, how did it come untied?
The grace you only ran from, the bridges that you burned
The peace of mind you learned to live without

I hope you found it now (yeah, yeah)
I hope you found it now (yeah)
ooohhhh oooh
ooohhhh oooh

The burdenes that you carrie and all of you mistakes
You're looking for a place to lay them down

And I hope you found it now (yeah)
I hope you found it now (yeah, yeah)
I hope you found it now (yeah, oh)
I hope you found it now
I hope you found it now

Don't tell me the truth
Tell me that it didn't happen
There's been a mistake
There's been a misunderstanding


Dirty your hands
Tearing my heart into pieces
If this is the end
Then we whisper the wind and release it

(chorus)
We don't have to know
We don't have it all worked out
We can just keep Walking blind

Don't give me your word
Give me something to hold on to
I don't want to fight
I don't want no big decision
I'm not afraid
for tearing your heart into pieces

Metallica's "Until it Sleeps---this matches my mindset when I finally faced what happened.

Where do I take this pain of mine?
I run but it stays right by my side

So tear me open and pour me out
There's things inside that scream and shout
And the pain still hates me
So hold me until it sleeps

Just like the curse, just like a stray
You feed it once and now it stays
Now it stays

So tear me open but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me until I'm clean

It grips you so hold me
It stains you so hold me
It hates you so hold me
It holds you so hold me
Until it sleeps

So tell me why you've chosen me
Don't want your grip
Don't want your greed
Don't want it

I'll tear me open, make you gone
No more can you hurt anyone
And the fear still shakes me
So hold me until it sleeps

It grips you so hold me
It stains you so hold me
It hates you so hold me
It holds you, holds you
Holds you until it sleeps

Until it sleeps
Until it sleeps
Until it sleeps
Until it sleeps

I don't want it
I don't want it, want it, want it
Want it, want it, no

So tear me open but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me 'til I'm clean

I'll tear thee open, make you gone
No longer will you hurt anyone
And the hate still shapes me
So hold me until it sleeps

Until it sleeps
Until it sleeps
Until it sleeps...

Three Days Grace: "Happiness"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFJMQxHWICE

"Happiness"

I reach out when I have a confession
I reach out in desperation
I reach out when no one is listening
So I go looking for the next best thing

Happiness straight from the bottle
When real lifeís too hard to swallow
Happiness straight from the bottle
When real lifeís too hard to swallow

I feel them judging on me for their own pleasure
If they really knew theyíd know better
That Iím the one who caves under pressure
When desperate times call for desperate measures

Happiness straight from the bottle
When real lifeís too hard to swallow
Happiness straight from the bottle
When real lifeís too hard to swallow

I know thereís got to be some peace in me
But I canít find it
I get so sick of looking

Happiness straight from the bottle
When real lifeís too hard to swallow
Happiness straight from the bottle
When real lifeís too hard to swallow

Too hard to swallow

Linkin Park: "Iridescent"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLYiIBCN9ec

"Iridescent"

When you were standing in the wake of devastation
When you were waiting on the edge of the unknown
And with the cataclysm raining down
Insides crying, "Save me now!"
You were there, impossibly alone

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope, but failureís all youíve known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go. Let it go

And in a burst of light that blinded every angel
As if the sky had blown the heavens into stars
You felt the gravity of tempered grace
Falling into empty space
No one there to catch you in their arms

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope, but failureís all youíve known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go. Let it go

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope, but failureís all youíve known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go. Let it go

Let it go
Let it go
Let it go
Let it go

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope, but failureís all youíve known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go. Let it go

Linkin Park is my go-to band. Whatever I'm feeling and dealing with they have a song that speaks to me.

Mumford & Sons: "After The Storm"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWYG7lZBc6U

"After The Storm"

And after the storm,
I run and run as the rains come
And I look up, I look up,
on my knees and out of luck,
I look up.

Night has always pushed up day
You must know life to see decay
But I won't rot, I won't rot
Not this mind and not this heart,
I won't rot.

And I took you by the hand
And we stood tall,
And remembered our own land,
What we lived for.

And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And now I cling to what I knew
I saw exactly what was true
But oh no more.
That's why I hold,
That's why I hold with all I have.
That's why I hold.

And I won't die alone and be left there.
Well I guess I'll just go home,
Oh God knows where.
Because death is just so full and man so small.
Well I'm scared of what's behind and what's before.

And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

Old Man Canyon: "Wiser"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=om0RGEnWIEk

"Wiser"

When I'm wiser and grown taller
I will see your ways
And when I've come to the places i'm going
I will know your ways

I can feel the hurt now I can turn this pain to blame
I'm trying to see it clear but I don't know why its here at all
You can keep yourself down as long as you want now
But do ya
You can push it on another but damn that mans your brother now

When I'm wiser and grown taller
I will see your ways

All my heart I'll follow
try until we all glow
We'll shine like diamonds in the rough
All my heart I'll follow take me back I'll show you
We'll shine like diamonds in the rough

But Oh the journey's been long I've learned and I've lost on the way
Go and be who you are shine like the sun on the stars

When I'm wiser and grown taller
I will see your ways
And when I've come to the places i'm going
I will know your ways

Mumford & Sons: "Ghosts That We Knew"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGac_nwEeuI

"Ghosts That We Knew"

You saw my pain washed out in the rain
Broken glass, saw the blood run from my veins
But you saw no fault, no cracks in my heart
And you knelt beside my hope torn apart

But the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
We'll live a long life

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
'Cause oh that gave me such a fright
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we'll be alright

So lead me back, turn south from that place
And close my eyes to my recent disgrace
'Cause you know my call
And we'll share my all
And our children come and they will hear me roar

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
'Cause oh that gave me such a fright
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we'll be alright

But hold me still, bury my heart on the coals
But hold me still, bury my heart next to yours

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
'Cause oh that gave me such a fright
But I will hold on with all of my might
Just promise me we'll be alright

But the ghosts that we knew made us black and all blue
But we'll live a long life
And the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
And we'll live a long life
