Like John I decided to gather some lyrics that mean a lot to me. It's about the lyrics not so much the music, as from most I either don't like the music or have never heard it. \:\)
I realise that some persons would laugh in my face if i admitted i like some of the following bands lyrics, but i decided I don't care.

Believe
Hanson

I was holding on, now Iím letting go
This is nothing more than a picture show
Everything I knew now I hardly know
Busy keeping less, never getting more
One more nickel dime Iím out the door
This kind of life I canít afford

I want to believe thereís something to believe
I would live only just to believe
Iíd love to believe that itís not only me
Thatís longing only just to believe
So believe
Cos I want to believe
I want to believe

Canít put my mind at ease with the words I say
Trying to get myself to get out of my way
Birds in the trees just make me depressed
Seeing sunny skies, feeling emptiness
Layers of lies just seem to fold
This kind of life is all I know

I want to believe thereís something to believe
I would live only just to believe
Iíd love to believe that itís not only me
Thatís longing only just to believe
So believe
Cos I want to believe
I want to believe

Murder wears a friendly smile
Like the perfect end in a plastic vial, no pain
Sorry I canít seem to stay
But this bird was meant to fly away
Fly away, fly away
Layers of lies just seem to fold
This kind of life is all I know

I want to believe thereís something to believe
I would live only just to believe
Iíd love to believe that itís not only me
Thatís longing only just to believe
So believe
Cos I want to believe
I want to believe

I will believe
Iíd love to believe
I can believe in something
I will believe
I'd love to believe
I canít believe in nothing
I will believe
Iíd love to believe
I can believe in something
I will believe
I'd love to believe
I canít believe in nothing


Blue Sky
Hanson

I'm blind with eyes wide open
My body's tired and broken
I want a taste of something, that doesn't leave me dry
This hope for answered questions
As rare as true conviction
I stare into the distance, there is no truth in sight
Who can tell me why

Everybody's looking for a blue sky
Searching for an answer on a satellite
I know that there's got to be a blue sky out there to see
A blue sky waiting for me

I've seen the main attraction
I've felt the moment's passion
I won't be no soap box teacher, just taking your time
Just taking your time
Who can tell me why

Everybody's looking for a blue sky
Searching for an answer on a satellite
I know that there's got to be a blue sky out there to see
A blue sky

Everywhere I go, it feels like I'm always searching for something
'Til I know for sure, I'll be right here waiting for something
More, more, for something more, for something more

Everybody's looking for a blue sky
Searching for an answer on a satellite
I know that there's got to be a blue sky out there to see
Somewhere there's a blue sky waiting
Everybody's looking for a blue sky
Searching for an answer on a satellite
I know that there's got to be a blue sky waiting for me
A blue sky



Got a hold on me
Hanson

Try as I might
I'm a fool in a losing fight
Can't escape the bullet's bite
Cuz the enemy's inside.

Sign on the dotted line
Take your pick
Have a bite
When seduction starts
I know it won't stop
Till I give you the things
I can't deny

You've got me wrapped up in your cancer
But I'm not quite what you thought I'd be

{You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold and its feelin' good.
You really got control of me
I should've gotten out when I thought I could}

I get my fix for the last time
One more trip to the other side
I scratch my skin
Cuz you leave me dry
I'm makin' deals with thieves and liars

{chorus}

Walk the roads down the boulevards
Past the dollar shows for the bleeding hearts
You've used me up
Down to the last drop
But I'm more than what you thought I'd be

You thought you had a hold on me
You thought you had a hold and its feelin' good.
You thought you had control of me
Should have gotten out when you thought I would

You thought you had control of me
But you never had your hold on me
You never had control of me
You never had control of me, control of me




Strong enough to break
Hanson

I donít feel myself today
Just a figure in a big monopoly game
Struggle is the price you pay
You get just enough just to give it away
Iím sinking but Iím floating away
Throw me a line so I can anchor my pain
The fabric is about to fray
The fabric is about to fray

Maybe you could take a look at yourself lately
Maybe you could take a look at yourself lately
Maybe you could take a look at yourself lately

Things keep coming and I keep wondering
I start feeling the walls close in
Things keep coming and I keep stumbling
I start feeling Iím strong enough to break
Oh, I start feeling Iím strong enough to break

Been running through my mind today
Scenarios to add to your hypocrisy
No one ever takes the blame
But everyone is searching for a cure to the pain
Nothing ever seems to change
Oh, nothing ever seems to change
We just play like broken records in a deaf manís charade

Maybe you could take a look at yourself lately
Maybe you could take a look at yourself lately
Maybe you could take a look at yourself lately

Things keep coming and I keep wondering
I start feeling the walls close in
Things keep coming and I keep stumbling
I start feeling Iím strong enough to break
Oh, I start feeling Iím strong enough to break

Carry on just a pawn and the same old song
Iím still holding on

The fabric is about to fray

Maybe you could take a look at yourself lately
Maybe you could take a look at yourself lately

Things keep coming and I keep wondering
I start feeling the walls close in
Things keep coming and I keep stumbling
I start feeling Iím strong enough
Things keep coming and I keep wondering
I start feeling the walls close in
Things keep coming and I keep stumbling
I start feeling Iím strong enough to break
Oh, I start feeling Iím strong enough to break

At first whenever I heard it I would think of my mother, she passed away in a caraccident a few years ago when I was 14.
I guess it still reminds me of her, so it's an important song for me.



Saying goodbye doesnít exist
Marco Borsato - (translated from Dutch to English by me. So it doesnít rhyme anymore.)

Saying goodbye doesnít exist,
I do go away but I donít leave you.
But sweetheart you have to believe even though it hurts

I want you to let go of me,
And to go on whit your life tomorrow
But when youíre scared or lonely,
I will be there

Come like the wind that you feel and the rain
Follow what you do like the light of the moon
Look for me in everything and you will find me
Whisper my name and I will be coming

See whatís invisible,
What you believe is true.
Just open your eyes.
And I will be with you
Everything you have to do
Is to believe me on my word

Saying goodbye doesnít exist,

Come like the wind that you feel and the rain
Follow what you do like the light of the moon
Look for me in everything and you will find me
Whisper my name and I will be coming

Look in the air,
Look at the sea.
Wherever you will be walking,
Yes I will walk with you.
Every step and every moment,
Wherever you are then,
Whatever you do,
Wherever you go.
Whenever you need me,
Just whisper my name,
And I will be coming.

Saying goodbye doesnít exist.

With translation, translation is not completely correct, but good enough.

The last verse reminded me of MS. \:\)

Don't Panic
Coldplay

Oh, we're sinking like stones,
All that we fought for,
All those places we've gone,
All of us are done for.

We live in a beautiful world,
Yeah we do, yeah we do,
We live in a beautiful world,
Oh, we're sinking like stones,
All that we fought for,
All those places we've gone,
All of us are done for.

We live in a beautiful world,
Yeah we do, yeah we do,
We live in a beautiful world.

Oh, all that I know,
There's nothing here to run from,
Cause here, everybody
here's got somebody to lean on.


I think I stole this one from Alexander... \:\)
Last one for now.

Everything's Not Lost
Coldplay

When I counted up my demons
Saw there was one for every day
With the good ones on my shoulders
I drove the other ones away

So if you ever feel neglected
And if you think that all is lost
I'll be counting up my demons, yeah
Hoping everything's not lost

When you thought that it was over
You could feel it all around
And everybody's out to get you
Don't you let it drag you down

'Cos if you ever feel neglected
And if you think that all is lost
I'll be counting up my demons, yeah
Hoping everything's not lost

If you ever feel neglected
If you think that all is lost
I'll be counting up my demons, yeah
Hoping everything's not lost

Singing out
Oh, oh, oh, yeah
Oh, oh, yeah
Oh, oh, yeah
Everything's not lost

So come on, yeah
Oh, oh, yeah
Come on, yeah
And everything's not lost

Oh, oh, yeah
Oh, oh, yeah
Oh, oh, yeah
And everything's not lost

Come on, yeah
Oh, oh, yeah
Come on, yeah

Come on, yeah
Oh, oh, yeah
Come on, yeah
And everything's not lost

Sing out, yeah
Oh, oh, yeah
Come on, yeah
And everything's not lost

Come on, yeah
Oh, oh yeah
Sing out, yeah
And everything's not lost

Hey Stefan

I send you these lyrics because itís how I feel sometimes. But when I donít see everything too dark then I know that the end of the song is incorrect. We arenít empty handed. We have friends and/or family who care about us. Hope you like it.

Alleen (Marco Borsato)
English translation: Alone

The moon appears
And youíre coming to visit me
In my recollection

You donít say a word
And laughs
Stills the pain for a moment
Until I wake up again
With nothing
Alone

The time has regrets
That he made a mistake
Even the wind
Howls from pain
Has missed you

The moon disappears
Leaves me empty handed
The night
She takes you with her
And leaves me
Alone

John

BlOf - Mens (human)
Translated from Dutch to English by me

There really is nothing that can not happen today
Doors sway open
Windows fall closed
And whole worlds dissapear
Because they asked for it
Without knowing
And always again that question
If it ever justice is
That it a fight is
To just be somewhere
To reside and live
And even if it was just for a little while
To really be a human person
And then to come lose from your place and time

There really is nothing that can not happen today
Cities flood
Buildings collapse
Blue skies float away
In darkbrown eyes
Without a good reason
And always again that question
If it ever justice is
That it a fight is
To just be somewhere
To reside and live
And even if it was just for a little while
To really be a human person
And then to come lose from your place and time...

And always again that question
If it ever justice is
That it a fight is
To just be somewhere
To reside and live
And even if it was just for a little while
To really be a human person
And then to come lose from your place and time

Walk Away
Racoon

You cover your eyes if you can't stand the sight
Walk away
You cover your ears, so you don't have to hear
Walk away
You cover your nightmares,
You put them away
'Cause if nobody knows them,
They might go away
Walk away
Walk away
Walk away
Without me

You cover your lies with stories and smiles
Walk away
You're scared of what to find
So you just run and hide
Run away
If you play with a gun then you will shoot someone
When you sit in the fire, it's your ass getting warm
Walk away
Walk away
Walk away
Without me
Without me
Without me
Without me

Why do you yell
You can whisper as well
Walk away
These teardrops of rain are masking your shame
Walk away
This midsummer storm
You see a midsummer fight
Put your head in the sand, if you can't make it right
Walk away
Walk away
Walk away
Without me



Laugh about it
Racoon

Can you give me solid ground,
'cause all my footsteps turn me down
One by one
Can you give me free advice
I don't know if I can
But I'll try to listen
And I can blast friendship to hell
Or I can try to make things better
They change the rules when it's my turn
So they can laugh and watch me burn

I can laugh about it,
Or I can cry about it
I should ignore the words you say
'Cause they can hurt, but won't kill me
They can hurt, but won't kill me

They can hurt, but won't kill me

A fist full of the things you love
Life's a quiz so cough it up
Go on and cough it up now
When the future's far away
It's always better than today
And everytime I'm having fun
There's something I'm doing wrong
And all these warning lights are lit
But always after you need
Yeah well anyway,

I can laugh about it
I'd better try to laugh
I can cry about it
You'll never see me cry
I should ignore the words you say
They can hurt, but won't kill me
They can hurt, but won't kill me
They can hurt but won't kill me

So I can laugh about it
Yeah I'd better try to laugh
I can cry about it
You know you'll never see me cry
I should ignore the words you say
They can hurt, but won't kill me
'Cause they can hurt, but won't kill me
No they won't kill me.

Acrobat
U2

Don't believe what you hear, don't believe what you see
If you just close your eyes you can feel the enemy.
When I first met you girl, you had fire in your soul.
What happened t'your face of melting snow
Now it looks like this!
And you can swallow or you can spit
You can throw it up, or choke on it
And you can dream, so dream out loud
You know that your time is coming round
So don't let the bastards grind you down.

No, nothing makes sense, nothing seems to fit.
I know you'd hit out if you only knew who to hit.
And I'd join the movement
If there was one I could believe in
Yeah, I'd break bread and wine
If there was a church I could receive in.
'Cause I need it now.
To take the cup
To fill it up, to drink it slow.
I can't let you go.

And I must be an acrobat
To talk like this and act like that.
And you can dream, so dream out loud
And don't let the bastards grind you down.

What are we going to do now it's all been said?
No new ideas in the house, and every book's been read.

And I must be an acrobat
To talk like this and act like that.
And you can dream, so dream out loud
And you can find your own way out.
And you can build, and I can will
And you can call, I can't wait until
You can stash and you can seize
In dreams begin responsibilities
And I can love, and I can love
And I know that the tide is turning 'round
So don't let the bastards grind you down.




Bad
U2

If you twist and turn away.
If you tear yourself in two again.
If I could, yes I would
If I could, I would let it go.
Surrender, dislocate.

If I could throw this lifeless life-line to the wind.
Leave this heart of clay, see you walk, walk away
Into the night, and through the rain
Into the half light and through the flame.

If I could, through myself, set your spirit free
I'd lead your heart away, see you break, break away
Into the light and to the day.

To let it go and so to find away.
To let it go and so find away.
I'm wide awake.
I'm wide awake, wide awake.
I'm not sleeping.

If you should ask, then maybe
They'd tell you what I would say
True colours fly in blue and black
Blue silken sky and burning flag.
Colours crash, collide in blood-shot eyes.

If I could, you know I would
If I could, I would let it go.

This desperation, dislocation
Separation, condemnation
Revelation, in temptation
Isolation, desolation
Let it go and so to find away
To let it go and so to find away
To let it go and so to find away

I'm wide awake, I'm wide awake, wide awake
I'm not sleeping

Stefan,

You've been posting some really cool songs. I especially like the ones by U2 - one of my favorite bands! The Dutch songs are interesting too - the Youtube clips are great for hearing how they sound in the original version. What's especially important is the way you tell us what these songs mean to you.

Much love,
Larry
