I don't have one song, I've gathered a series of them over my life.

Here is one of them but there are too many to list for me.


Mudhoney

"Acetone"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcZLo65l8fg

Good morning dear, I think I'm losing it
Can't find my way and I'm, I'm getting used to it
Sun refused to shine on this side of the street
I'm not recognizing anyone I meet
Trying to hide in the shadow of the sun
You're not fooling anyone

Oh, acetone
Won't you ever leave me alone?
Oh, acetone
Oh, acetone

Look at me and answer truthful now
Did you drink that last spoonful down?
She drinks from the bitter cup
I'm trying to get her to give it up
Oh, Lord what have we become?
We're not fooling anyone

Oh, acetone
Why can't she leave you alone?
Oh, acetone
Oh, acetone

My feet are dragging down on this dusty old road
My throat is dry and I'm all alone
I remember when we walked side by side
When I was parched I would drink in your sight
I never meant to make you run
I never meant to hurt anyone

Oh, acetone
Why couldn't you leave us alone?
Oh, acetone
Oh, acetone

Oh, acetone
Why wouldn't you leave us alone?


Great topic, Man!

thanx,
Logan

Weighty Ghost by Wintersleep

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-iW0zL2LI0

I got out of bed today,
Swear to God I couldnít see my face
I got out of bed today staring at a ghost
Who forgot to float away,
didnít have all that much to say
Wouldnít even tell me his own name
Whereíd my body go

Where oh whereíd my body go?
Africa or Mexico?
Where or whereíd my body go?
Whereíd my body go?

Have you seen my ghost?
Staring at the ground?
Have you seen my ghost?
Sick of those goddamn clouds

Are you some kind of medicine man?
Cut the demons out of my head
You canít kill something thatís already dead
Just leave my soul alone

I donít need no surgery
Take those knives away from me
Just wanna die in my own body
A ghost just needs a home

---

thats what it would be today, anyways. i dunno why. the video too, actually.

This one always gets to me because I can relate at so many levels.

"Against The Wind" by Bob Seger

It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Janey was lovely she was the queen of my nights
There in the darkness with the radio playing low
And the secrets that we shared
The mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control
'Til there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove
And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me oh so tight
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

Against the wind
We were runnin' against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin'
Against the wind

The years rolled slowly past
And I found myself alone
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends
I found myself further and further from my home
And I guess I lost my way
There were oh so many roads
I was living to run and running to live
Never worryied about paying or even how much I owed
Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that would bend
I began to find myself searching
Searching for shelter again and again

Against the wind
A little something against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter sgainst the wind

Well those drifter's days are past me now
I've got so much more to think about
Deadlines and commitments
What to leave in, what to leave out

Against the wind
I'm still runnin' against the wind
I'm older now but still runnin' against the wind
Well I'm older now and still runnin'
Against the wind
Against the wind
Against the wind

Still runnin'
I'm still runnin' against the wind
I'm still runnin'
I'm still runnin' against the wind
Still runnin'
Runnin' against the wind
Runnin' against the wind
See the young man run
Watch the young man run
Watch the young man runnin'
He'll be runnin' against the wind
Let the cowboys ride
Let the cowboys ride
They'll be ridin' against the wind
Against the wind ...

Driving through the long night
Trying to figure who's right and who's wrong
Now the kid has gone.
I sit belted up tight,
She sucks on a match light, glowing bronze,
Steering on.

And I might be more of a man
If I stopped this in its tracks and say come on, lets go home.
But she's got the wheel,
And I've got nothing except what I have on.

When you're driving with the brakes on,
When you're swimming with your boots on,
Itís hard to say you love someone
And itís hard to say you don't

Trying to keep the mood right,
Trying to steer the conversation from
The thing we've done.
She shuts up the ashtray and I say itís a long way back now hon
And she just yawns. And we might get lost someplace so desolate that no one where we're from would ever come

But she's got the wheel
And I've got to deal from now on.

When you're driving with the brakes on
When you're swimming with your boots on
Itís hard to say you love someone
And itís hard to say you don't

But unless the moon falls tonight, unless continents collide,
Nothing's gonna make me break from her side.

Cos when you're driving with the breaks on
When you're swimming with your boots on
Itís hard to say you love someone
And itís hard to say you don't...

There are also a few that I relate to, however the most striking for me was a song called 'You' from Janet Jackson's 'Velvet Rope' album. I was stunned by how the lyrics to that song coincided with my life. In fact that entire album really touched me on so many levels. It's a classic for me. The following are the lyrics to 'You'.

Here I am in your face
Tellin' truths and not your old lies
Seems to me that you care
And I know that you're runnin' out of time
See ya can't get away
I'll be here forever and again
Whisperin' in your ear
Do believe 'cause you know you cannot win


Spent most your life pretending not to be
The one you are but who you choose to see
Learned to survive in your fictitious world
Does what they think of you determine your worth
If special's what you feel when you're with them
Taken away, you feel less then again

That's right

Chorus:

You gotta mean what you say
You gotta say what you mean
Tryin' to please everyone
Sacrifice your own needs
Check in the mirror my friend
No lies will be told then
Pointin' the finger again
You can't blame nobody but you

Repeat Chorus

There's a feelin' inside
No you cannot change it right away
Gotta make it try
And with time it'll start to go away
I'll be here when you need
That one to sit and cry to
'Cause I'm the you you forgot
The only one you know you cannot lie to

Bitter you'll be if you don't change you ways
When you hate you, you hate everyone that day
Unleash this scared child that you've grown into
You cannot run for you can't hide from you
Can't hide from you

That's right

Repeat Chorus

The Who's "Behind Blue Eyes" was the one song that communicated my feelings.

Written By Pete Townsend.

No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes

No one know what it's like
To be hated
to be fated
to telling only lies

But my dreams
They aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free

No one knows what it's like
To feel these feelings
Like I do
And I blame you

No one bites back as hard
At their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through

But my dreams
Aren't as empty
as my conscience seems to be.

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That is never free

When My fist clenches,crack it open
Before I use it,and lose my control
When I smile, tell me some bad news
Before I laugh and act like fool

If I swallow anything evil
Put your finger down my throat
If I shiver, please give me a blanket
Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes
