Anouk - The Dark
http://youtu.be/483d50h5HH0

I'm walking in the park
And I'm talking to the dark
But there ain't nobody listening no
My heart has turned to stone
When I found myself alone
Now all I do is whisper to the dark

Yeah
yeah

There's only so much you can take
You've gotta to give yourself a break
But I don't think you're listening no no no no
If you're gonna take it all so hard
You gonna tear yourself apart
I can understand you miss him in the dark

oh oh oh
Yeah, teach your heart how to sing get the courage again now
Yeah, take the 10:50pm train to the city
Yeah, I had a chance for romance so I do it again now

If love is no longer being served
You've got to leave the table
Mister aznavour told me, merci beaucoup
Though I miss him, got to let go
Though I miss him, got to let go
Let it go

It's about that time to leave it all behind you
You don't want to but life is passing by you
The hard knocks, got you twisted like dreadlocks
Catalogue your dark and set some new marks
I understand your body's filled with hesitation
Trust me it's gonna be a whole new situation
Turn this page I guess you know what to do
Rise up like phoenix I'm bringing out the beauty in you

Yeah, teach your heart how to sing get the courage again now
Yeah, take the 10:50pm train to the city
Yeah, I had a chance for romance so I do it again now

oh no no no
come on come on come on
(x 4)

oh yeah oh yeah

Anouk - It's so hard
http://youtu.be/VF3GYSZk3Uc

I'm just thinkin' about the child in me,
That I'm sometimes feeling inside
And I'm figuring out just what it is
That makes me feel so small

Is it you, that hurts me when I give myself
Every day and every night
Am I too blind to see that it doesn't work out
Did I really ask too much of you baby
Do you mean to tell me that's the way it is
Do you mean to say

It's all so hard, It's so hard
It's all so hard, It's so hard

As I search for an answer, I see the clear blue sky
And I know that you're the one to blame
And I feel so nave
When you say that our love to you was just a game
I dream, my dream, I'm sane, I'm insane
Oh, please don't, please don't speak to me that way
Do you mean to tell me that's the way it is
Do you mean to say

It's all so hard, It's so hard
It's all so hard, It's so hard
Damned it's so hard, why you're so hard
Why you're so hard, It's tearing me apart

Anouk - Break down that wall
http://youtu.be/ziuc-ZHLSok

Baby why are you so sad?
What's the thing your running from?
Caught in the red light.
As if money is the cure

Is this your only way to survive?
Are you trying to get even with the past
What happened to the dreams you had?
I think it's time for you, to
Show them you are able.
To leave without saying one word
I know it won't be easy, baby
But i will run with you

Cause every night has a day
Every wish has a prayer
Don't loose your faith
And I'll be holding your hand
Cause it's never too late
There's someone who needs you

So break down that wall, baby
There's a new world out there waiting
Just tear down that wall girl
Run away and don't look back
Breakdown that wall
Breakdown that wall
There's someone who needs you

Lady, it's your turn now
Just walk the streets with your head op high
Oh, baby doesn't that feel right
Put a big smile on your face, walk on straight
Yeah, tell the motherfuckers they were wrong
Isn't this your sweetest revenge?
Feels good he! I told you so

Cause every night has a day
Every wish has a prayer
Don't loose your faith
And I'll be holding your hand
Cause it's never too late
There's someone who needs you

So break down that wall, baby
There's a new world out there waiting
Just tear down that wall girl
Run away and don't look back
Breakdown that wall
Breakdown that wall
There's someone who needs you

baby
baby
oh

So, break down that wall, babe
Break down that wall babe
There's a new world out there
Tear down that wall babe
Run away, run away, run away
Breakdown that wall
Breakdown that wall
Cause I need you

Don't know how I forgot this one:

PETER GABRIEL--"DIGGING IN THE DIRT" 1992
Something in me, dark and sticky
All the time it's getting strong
No way of dealing with this feeling
Can't go on like this too long

This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
I told you, I told you, I told you, I told you
This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
I told you, I told you, I told you, I told you

Don't talk back
Just drive the car
Shut your mouth
I know what you are
Don't say nothing
Keep your hands on the wheel
Don't turn around
This is for real

Digging in the dirt
Stay with me, I need support
I'm digging in the dirt
To find the places I got hurt
Open up the places I got hurt

The more I look, the more I find
As I close on in, I get so blind
I feel it in my head, I feel it in my toes
I feel it in my sex, that's the place it goes

This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
I told you, I told you, I told you, I told you
This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
I told you, I told you, I told you, I told you

Don't talk back
Just drive the car
Shut your mouth
I know what you are
Don't say nothing
Keep your hands on the wheel
Don't turn around
This is for real

I'm digging in the dirt
Stay with me I need support
I'm digging in the dirt
To find the places I got hurt
Open up the places I got hurt
I'm digging in the dirt
Stay with me I need support
I'm digging in the dirt
To find the places I got hurt
To open up the places I got hurt

music is my lifeline sometimes. my T suggested that it might be a good idea to create a "Survivor Playlist." i procrastinated for quite awhile. now that its complete, it has become the soundtrack of my recovery process. i just wanted to share a few of my favorites. i dont like to get distracted from the message im supposed to receive by the one that they want to give me. so i have not posted links to "official" videos. the only exception is "these times." i find the video very moving.

without further ado. my humble offerings to the collection are below.

peace, patrick

these times... safetysuit
for when i'm overwhelmed and I need some hope
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOS1GaxqAkI

all the way down... glen hansard
for when restrained defiance is necessary
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpVCYQik96U

breathe me... sia
for when i'm curled up in the fetal position
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqyEzFzkJWs

half-life... duncan sheik
for when i need a reminder of why I'm doing this
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLvAF923Ey4

i'll rise... ben harper
what i want to say to my abusers if i could
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFFpwhTMr6A&list=PLS0kJrfZqX-NToCA5YcTMJImTiLyp_P6O

maybe... sick puppies
for when i'm wavering in my commitment
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKGwgEqMxMQ

more.. tyrone wells
for when i'm tired and confused
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdTyVg9njOk

somewhere i belong... linkin park
for when i'm pissed off and need an aggressive jump start
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZI8AC4AR5A

Good posts, everyone! It's amazing how much a song can speak to you, especially when you're hurting. I wanted to add "Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through" by Jim Steinman, performed by Meat Loaf on "Bat Out of Hell II-- Back Into Hell." Music has always been my own personal escape and way of handling upsetting things (including those things that brought me to MS) so this one sums up more of my life than I care to admit.

You can't run away forever
But there's nothing wrong with getting a good head start
You want to shut out the night you want to shut down the sun
You want to shut away the pieces of a broken heart

Think of how we lay here together
We've been listening to the radio so loud and so strong
Every golden nugget coming like a gift from the gods
Someone must have blessed us when he gave us these songs

(chorus)
I treasure your love
I never want to lose it
Well you've been through the fires of hell
And I know you have the ashes to prove it

I treasure your love
I wanna show you how to use it
You've been through a lot of pain in the dirt
And I know you have the scars to prove it

But remember everything that I told you
And I'm telling you again that it's true
When you're alone and afraid and you're completely amazed
To find there's nothin' anybody can do

There's always something magic
There's always something new
And when you really really need it the most
That's when rock and roll dreams come through

The beat is yours forever
The beat is always true
And when you really really need it the most
That's when rock and roll dreams come through
For you

(Instrumental break)

Once upon a time was a backbeat
And once upon a time all the chords came to life
And the angels had guitars even before they had wings
If you hold onto a chorus you can get through the night

(to chorus)

But remember everything that I told you
And I'm telling you again that it's true
You're never alone 'cause you can put on the 'phones
And let the drummer tell your heart what to do

There's always something magic
There's always something new
And when you really really need it the most
That's when rock and roll dreams come through

The beat is yours forever
The beat is always true
And when you really really need it the most
That's when rock and roll dreams come through
For you



Anyone else besides me ever spend hours at night driving around and crying, and being held together by nothing but your favorite songs?

Bob

This one has great lyrics for the likes of CSA and this site IMO. Angst with a touch of hope.


The Healer (The Chameleons) released 1990


Here comes the sun
Calling out to everyone
Here comes the sun
Falling down on everyone

Here comes the moon
Her shadows come to swallow me soon
Here comes the moon
Her shadows come to swallow me soon

It's alright
You're not the only one.

There go my fears
Running on a river of tears
There go my fears
Running on a river of tears

Here comes the pain
Here comes the pain
The hurting again and again
And again and again

It's alright
You're not the only one

So I got to thinking
Perhaps I should think about staying
At least for a moment or two
I'm feeling shakey
But I'll be ok
I just don't know what to say
I don't know what to do
Please
You can take this pain away
Please
You can take this pain away

It's alright
How many can make you cry?

Here comes the rain
Here comes the rain
Flushing all the filth down the drain

Here comes the sun
Falling down on every one
Here comes the sun
Calling out to everyone
