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"
