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

Loc: Pa, but likely traveling...
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.

Jason Walker: "What If I Told You"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QLbxK29A9Y

"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
