what are the best song lyrics you've come across? you know, stuff to be found on the soundtrack of your life...

we refuse to be
what they wanted us to be
we are what we are
that's the way it's going to be.
and we've been treading on the winepress (for too long)
rebel. rebel.
and we've been taken for granted (much too long)
rebel. rebel.
babylon system is the vampire.
sucking the blood of the sufferer...

bob marley

do your best with the words-- it's always great (self-fulfilling?) when you find deep personal meaning in some lyrics and it turns out you got them wrong

On my soundtrack is Vertical Horizon's Finding Me
the entire song resonates with me, but especially the chorus:

Don't tell me
How to be
'Cause I like some suffering
Don't ask me
What I need
I'm just fine
Here finding me
Me

"This is how it seems to me- that life is only therapy
Real expensive and no guarantee..
So I lie here on the couch, with my heart hanging out
Frozen solid with fear, like a rock in the ground.
But you move me- you give me courage I didn't know I had.
You move me- now I can't go with you and stay where I am,
so you move me.
This is how love seemed to me- I could look and not see
Going through the emotions, not knowing what they mean
And it scared me so much, that I just wouldn't budge
I might have stayed there forever, if not for your touch
But you moved me... out of myself and into the fire
You moved me... now I'm taking delight in every desire
Cause you moved me.."
-Garth Brooks, "You Move Me"

And my personal, oh-so-SASSY anthem....

"Lock up your husbands, lock up your sons
Lock up your whisky cabinets, girls, lock up your guns
Lock up the beauty shop, there's no tellin if they've heard the news
Call the boys downtown at Neiman Marcus, tell 'em lock up them high-heeled shoes
Cause when God-fearin women get the blues
There ain't no slap-dab-a-tellin' what they're gonna do
Run around yellin... I got a Mustang, it'll do 80
You don't have to be my baby
I stirred my last batch of gravy, you don't have to be my baby!
Call all the deacons, call the Ladies Aid
Call all the altos, sopranos, tenors, call every bass
Call all the Pentacostals, and bring that anoiting oil too
Call the preacher he's the only one can reach her
and there ain't no time to lose
Cause when God-fearin women get the blues...."
-Martina McBride, "When God-Fearin Women get the Blues"

not specific to me, but I've been listening to old war songs alot, mostly woodstock stuff...but it's an interesting take on the events back in Vietnam.

"I Feel Like I'm Fixin' To Die"

and it's 1,2,3
What are we Fightin' For?
Don't Ask Me
I Don't Give A Damn
Next Stop is Vietnam
and it's 5,6,7
Open up the Pearly Gates
Ain't No Time to Wonder Why
Whoppee, We're All Gonna Die
....
Come on Mothers Throughout the Land
Pack Your Boys Off to Vietnam
Come on Fathers Don't Hesitate
Send Your Sons Off Before it's too Late
Be the First One on Your Block
To Have Your Boy Come Home in a Box

I Love song lyrics.. the main reason I love barenaked ladies so much is because of their lyrics..they just speak to me I guess..The following aren't really the soundtrack of my life..but just some of my favorite lyrics :)

"I don't tend to worry 'bout the things that other people say, and I'm learning that I wouldn't want it any other way.."-BNL, Life in a Nutshell

"Once in awhile you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right"-Grateful Dead, Scarlet Begonias

An old punk band I used to love called Reset had an amazing song called concern. It goes like this:
___________________________
You're living in this country
and you do not give a damn
about the people that are voted
and that rule this fucking land

this concerns our country
which means this concerns us all
even though you're lazy
you know what is right and wrong
exercise the right that you've been given
as a citizen
isn't that your duty
to democracy?

you listen to the news
you're a witness to abuse
and in stead of helping out
you just sit there
where's your concern?
___________________________

Dave says
"Oh, life it seems a struggle between
What we see, what we do
I'm not going to change my ways
Just to please you or appease you"
___________________________
as well as
"Could I have been anyone other than me"
___________________________
and lastly
"Would you not like to be...
Sitting on top of the world with
Your legs hanging free?"

I used to be really into Ani DiFranco (I know what you're thinking and I just like the music!) Anyway, she has TONS of amazing lyrics. Here's some of my favorites:

Life is a B movie, it's stupid and it's strange
It's a directionless story and the dialogue is lame
But in the he said, she said sometimes there's some poetry
If you turn your back long enough and let it happen naturally

I build each one of my days out of hope.. and I give that hope your name..
And I don't know you that well but it don't take much to tell
Either you don't have the balls or you don't feel the same...

"My hearts on fire but my blood is frozen"- Juliana Hatfield, Little Pieces

Music's sort of my "thing", so here's some favorites:

Well, I've strolled across some dance floors filled with girls all dressed in red,
pulled my foot from my mouth and took back the things I said -
Wandered through the valley of the shadow of the dead,
Stumbled upon this old sundial, there these words I read:

I only count the sunny hours, brightest hours of day -
I never count the gloomy hours, I let them slip away . . .

Then I realize I'm awake . . .
-Long Beach Dub Allstars, "Sunny Hours"


If I had a shotgun, know what I'd do? I'd point that shit straight at the sky, and shoot heaven on down for you - because the bar is always open, and the time is always right, and if God's good word goes unspoken, then the music goes all night . . .
-Sublime, "Don't Push"


You make up ridiculous words that mean exactly nothing - I know just what you mean, that's the funny thing . . .
-311, "Sweet"


Baby, you picked the wrong guy, if you think you're that fly . . .
-Tupac Shakur, "I Get Around"


F--- the first amendment, my speech was free the day my soul descended.
-Jurassic 5


I've got an idea for a movie, and here's my pitch: I get a job and quit my band, and you'll stop being a bitch.
-the Vandals


I can't be too cool in a tree with my pants down . . .

"You and I should get away for a while. I just want to be alone in your smile. Buy some candy and cigarettes and we'll get in my car. We'll blast the stereo and we'll drive to Madagascar." - Blink 182

"I only count the sunny hours, brightest hours of day - I never count the gloomy hours, I let them slip away" - Long Beach Dub All Stars

"In the bright of day, it might seem like stars are gone. They never leave, they come back when the sun moves on." - A New Found Glory

"He steps outta the shade and says something like, 'You and me babe, how bout it?'"

"Can't do the talk like they do on TV. And I can't do a love song like it's meant to be. I can't do everything, but I'd do anything for you. Can't do anything but be in love with you."

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone.)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

Dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance..
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone)

You knew one of the resident Daveheads had to pipe up eventually, right?

But first a little Pearl Jam:
from Black:
"I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be the sun, in somebody's else's sky, why oh why can't it be mine..."

And I DO have a great Dave Matthews cover of Black on mp3. lol

Now, DMB:

"The future is no place to place your better days" -Cry Freedom

"Love you drive me to distraction" - Two Step

"I can't believe that we would lie in our graves...Dreaming of things that we might have been" - Lie in Our Graves

"When I was young I didn't think about it, now I can't get it out of my mind" Bartender

" I have no lid upon my head but if i did, you could look inside and see what is on my mind." -- I Let You Down

"...And if nothing can be done, We'll make the Best of What's Around" - Best of What's Around

..It's crazy I'm thinking just knowing that the world is round and here I am dancing on the ground, am I right side up or upside down, and is this real or am I dreaming.. - Crush

"I will go in this way, and find my own way out" #41

"Celebrate we will...because life is short but sweet for certain." - Two Step

"You quench my heart and you quench my mind" - Two Step

"Winter's cold spring erases , And the calm away by the storm is chasing. Everything good needs replacing, hope all these changes happen with you. In my life, never before have I ever so adored her eyes, her hair, everything she says. My delight you tickle me inside, touch my heart, my mind. No matter what's inside I give it to her, no need to satisfy my hunger, lost in her. While I spend these hours 5 senses reeling, with biggest steps I'm running After Her...I will run...after her" After Her

And all the lyrics to "I'll Back you Up." but especially--
I remember thinking
I'll go on forever only knowing
I'll see you again
But I know
The touch of you is so hard to remember
But like that touch I know no other
AND
And for sure
we have danced in the risk of each other
would you like to dance around the world with me?
AND
I remember thinking
Sometimes we walk
Sometimes we run away
But I know
No matter how fast we are running
Somehow we keep
Somehow we keep up with each other




I could keep going on, but I realize you'd all have me committed. LOL

:D

"So now I'm praying for the end of time, so hurry up and arrive cause if I've gotta spend another minute with you I don't think that I could really survive. Let me break my promise, forget my vow, God only knows what I can do right now. I'm praying for the end of time, that's all that I can do. I'm praying for the end of time, so I can end my time with you."

Some of His Tragic,
but I had a good life all the way" - He Went To Paris by Jimmy Buffet

I love music, I could have 9 million more of these.

"He steps outta the shade and says something like, 'You and me babe, how bout it?
Can't do the talk like they do on TV. And I can't do a love song like it's meant to be. I can't do everything, but I'd do anything for you. Can't do anything but be in love with you." just so you know, this is actually an Indigo Girls song covered.

Because the woman took a-lovin' over me

A tight tie-dyed dress, she was a psychedelic mess
We toured to the north, south, east and west
We sold some mushroom tea, we sold some ecstacy
We sold nitrous, opium, acid, heroin and PCP
And now I hear the police coming after me" - Scarlet Begonias by Sublime

Sister I see you
Dancing on the stage
Of memory
Sister I miss you

Fleeting visits pass
Still they satisfy
Reminders of the next
Overshadow goodbye
Our flames burn as one

Sister I see you
Dancing on the stage
Of memory
Sister I miss you

All I am begins with you
Thoughts of hope understood
Half of me breathes in you
Thoughts of love remain true

Here we are again saying goodbye
Still we fall asleep underneath the same sky
You're all I knew you'd become

Sister I see you
Dancing on the stage
Of memory
Sister I miss you

Entwined, you and I
Our souls speak from across the miles
Intertwined, you and I
Our blood flows from the same inside
Half of me, breathes in you
Thoughts of love remain true

I see you, I feel you
When I close my eyes
I see walking there...
I see you dancing in my mind"

And now, the end is near;And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, I'll say it clear,I'll state my case, of which I'm certain.
I've lived a life that's full.I've traveled each and ev'ry highway;
But more, much more than this,I did it my way.Regrets, I've had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,But more, much more than this,I did it my way.
Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knewWhen I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;And did it my way.
I've loved, I've laughed and cried.I've had my fill; my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,I find it all so amusing.To think I did all that;
And may I say - not in a shy way,"No, oh no not me,I did it my way".
For what is a man, what has he got?If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows -And did it my way!

Maybe you guys can help me. I love this song and I hear it on the radio and am dying which artist is singing it. It's a live performance and it's at least two guys. One I am pretty sure is Fred Durst. However, I don't think he is the main singer. It's somewhat slow and some of the lyrics are:


Cause I'm on the outside. I'm lookin in. I can see through you. See your true colors. Cause I you're ugly, ugly like me.


Can you tell me which band sings this please. Is is Staind with Fred Durst?

Thanks.

I'm looking for quotes for a shirt for a party.
Last year it was
"Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
If your cup is full may it be again"

I've got some I'm looking at, see if you know any other good quotes by any bands that fit in with the others, or just seem to be a good outdoor bandfest party thought, something you might have heard at woodstock...that line of quote, really

Turns out not where but who you're with that really matters

Drink your Health, Share your Wealth,

Yesterday is Gone
but Tomorrow is Forever

If I get home before daylight, I just might get some sleep tonight

All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise
All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to be free

..And if nothing can be done, We'll make the Best of What's Around

The future is no place to place your better days

is this real, or am I dreaming?

And for a moment, this good time, would never end.

The Buffet "Stay in touch with my insanity...." quote is good, as is "Ran into a chum with a bottle of rum and we ended up drinking all night," also a Buffet quote.

"And you read your Emily Dickinson,
And I my Robert Frost,
And we note our place with bookmarkers
That measure what we've lost.
Like a poem poorly written
We are verses out of rhythm,
Couplets out of rhyme,
In syncopated time
And The Dangling Conversation
And the superficial sighs
Are the borders of our lives" - Simon & Garfunkle "Dangling Conversation"
(this whole song is filled with great lines)

"And the Moonlight Beams
On the Girl of My Dreams
She's the SweatHeart of Sigma Chi"

"Whenever the head is severed
from the human body with a sharp enough weapon
the brain remains conscious for 10 seconds
long enough for me to give you one last message
and when you get to Hell,
you can tell Lucifer I said it" - Canibus

"I've got divine chromosomes in me
My sperm will scramble the eggs in a woman's ovaries" - Canibus

" 'Stop all this weeping, swallow your pride
You will not die, it's not poison' "
-and-
"The Commander-in-Chief answers him while chasing a fly
Saying, 'Death to all those who would whimper and cry'
And dropping a bar bell he points to the sky
Saving, 'The sun's not yellow, it's chicken' " - Bob Dylan "Tombstone Blues"

And The Story of Life, Right Here
"Ah get born, keep warm
Short pants, romance, learn to dance
Get dressed, get blessed
Try to be a success
Please her, please him, buy gifts
Don't steal, don't lift
Twenty years of schoolin'
And they put you on the day shift" - Bob Dylan "Subterranean Homesick Blues"

"You'd rather see me paralyzed" - Dylan "Positively 4th Street"

"I'd like to cut your head off so I could weigh it, what do ya say?" - Phish "Weigh"

"I took a moment from my day
wrapped it up in things you say
mailed it off to your address
you'll get it pretty soon I guess"

"And I said, Whatcha lookin' at? He hit me across the face with a bat" O.A.R. ""Crazy Game of Poker"

I'm sorry for boring some of you with how many damn songs I write here, but this is one that if you like funny songs, you MUST get, I have to write nearly all of the song, because I cannot pick a best verse

"Here I am, on my legs
I'm standing, standing here
Under me there is a place
And I'm standing on it
Here I am
And I'll be here forever
Unless I move over here

There I was just a minute ago
But I'm not there now, no
I'm here now, here again
But a different here
An eternal here, and eternal now
And I'm walking, I'm moving
I see you
My eyes are looking
I know you're there
Because at the end of my look you're there
I have eyes in my head
And I love you
When I look at you, you sometimes see me
If you're looking at me
And if you're not looking, then you don't
But I love you, I love you

I love you
I'm all alone
I'm here in my house alone
And I think of you
Lying in my bed
I look over out of the window
I see your face
And I'm frightened
'Cause I live on the eighth floor
You must be really, really tall
You scare me" Corky and the Juice Pigs "REMember"

Sunrise doesn't last all morning
A cloudburst doesn't last all day
Seems my love is up and has left you with no warning
It's not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away

Sunset doesn't last all evening
A mind can blow those clouds away
After all this, my love is up and must be leaving
It's not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
None of life's strings can last
So, I must be on my way
And face another day

Now the darkness only stays the night-time
In the morning it will fade away
Daylight is good at arriving at the right time
It's not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
All things must pass away

Here are some of my favorite lyrics. I am a big country fan!

What I Really Meant to Say by Cyndy Thompson

It caught me by surprise, when I saw you standing there-
Close enough to touch, breathing the same air.
You ask me how I've been, I guess that's when I smiled and said, "Just fine."
OH, but baby, I was dyin.

What I really meant to say, is I'm dyin here inside-
And I miss you more each day,
There's not a night I haven't cried.
And baby, here's the truth, I am still in love with you.



Love the song- it's so close to home! :)

"I feel home,
when I see the faces that remember my own,
I feel home
when I'm chillin outside with the people I know
I feel home
and that's just what i feel
home to me is reality
and all i ned is something real"
> O.A.R. - I feel home

"You gave me nothing now it's all I've got"
> U2 - With or Without You

"Could Dad be God?"
> DMB - Spoon

"You Make Me come
You Make me complete
You make me completely miserable"

(I heard an analysis of this song parralling it to the progression of lust-based relationships...it was pretty interesting...just substitute 'um' for 'ome' for the first 'come'. not trying to be nasty, but I'd venture to say that was their intent)

I hear the bass ride out like an ancient mating call, I can't take it y'all - I can feel the city breathing, chest heaving against the flesh of the evening; a sigh before I die, like the last train leaving . . .
-Mos Def

Well, you're pretty good looking, for a girl, but your back is so broken . . .
-the White Stripes

The plaster dented from your fist in hall where your first kiss, reminds you that the memories will fade . . .
-Dashboard Confessional

I ain't never been right if I ain't never been wrong, it seldom works out the way it does in this song - but once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right . . .

There's a light in my eyes but it's too bright to see
And a pain in my heart where you used to be
Guess I was wrong to assume that you were waiting here for me
There's a light in your eyes
Did you leave that light burning for me
- Blessed Union of Souls ~ Light In Your Eyes


Well one thing I've noticed wherever I wander
Everyone's got a dream he can follow or squander
You can do what you will with the days you are given
I'm tryin' to spend mine on the business of livin'
- Carolyn Arends ~ Seize The Day


She will promise you more
Than the Garden of Eden
Then she'll carelessly cut you
And laugh while you're bleedin'
But she'll bring out the best
And the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself
Cause she's always a woman to me
- Billy Joel ~ She's Always A Woman


I'm a lover, not a fighter
But I'll crack your teeth
- Missy Elliot ~ Son Of A Gun

When I wake in the morning
Gets me out of bed
Keeps me running,skipping,jumping
like a little kid

You know sometimes I can hardly
keep it inside
It overtakes me,overwhlems me
and I'm more alive

I did not get it wrong
?????????
and it's ok if they don't always understand
It very easy to get caught in circumstance
It's even easier to break out in a dance

Joy, unspeakable joy
Cause they did not feel it
They can not take it away
Joy, unspeakable joy
In my heart and I can't let them
steal my joy

People ask me why
This super natural high
Seeing only sun
When there's a cloudy sky

I know that trouble tries to surround me
but I've be given something greater deep inside me

Maybe I am hiding in my own confusion
Maybe we're just a picture in my head
Maybe what if it could be the way I wish it really was?
Maybe I don't want to see it
The way it really is

Actually this Lit song is on a "break up" mix my girlfriends and I made. I realized this same progression when I initially heard the song as well. So no needs for disclaimers and whatnot, apparently I have a "nasty" thought process as well. Haha.

"Another day has almost come and gone
Canít imagine what else could wrong
Sometimes Iíd like to hide away somewhere and lock the door
A single battle lost but not the war

'Cause tomorrowís another day
And Iím thirsty anyway
So bring on the rain

Itís almost like the hard times circle Ďround
A couple drops and they all start coming down
Yeah, I might feel defeated,
I might hang my head
I might be barely breathing - but Iím not dead

Tomorrowís another day
And Iím thirsty anyway
So bring on the rain

Iím not gonna let it get me down
Iím not gonna cry
And Iím not gonna lose any sleep tonight

'Cause tomorrow's another day
And I am not afraid
So bring on the rain"

Go on and love yourself

Time: by Pink Floyd (excerpts)

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then the one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but you're older
And shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Subdivisions: by Rush (excerpts)

Sprawling on the fringes of the city
In geometric order
An insulated border
In between the bright lights
And the far unlit unknown
Growing up it all seems so one-sided
Opinions all provided
The future pre-decided
Detached and subdivided
In the mass production zone
Nowhere is the dreamer or the misfit so alone

Subdivisions č
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
Subdivisions č
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out
Any escape might help to smooth
The unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe
The restless dreams of youth

Hello Goodbye: The Beatles (excerpt)

You say yes I say no You say stop
and I say go go go
Oh no You say goodbye and I say hello
hello hello I don't know why you say goodbye I say hello
hello hello I don't know why you say goodbye I say hello

Draggin' the line: Tommy James an the Shondells

Makin' a livin' the old hard way
Takin' and givin' by day by day

xok85xo, I share your love of BNL! I think they are the best band ever! I've seen them in concert 5 times and they always come up with something new. Here are a few of my favorite BNL lyrics:

"What did you think I was going to do, curl up and die just because of you?
I'm not that weak, you know.
What did you think I was going to do, try to make you love as much as I love you?
How could you be so low?
You arrogant man, what do you think that I am?
My heart will be fine, just stop wasting my time!"
-Break Your Heart

"I think it's getting to the point where I can be myself again
I think it's getting to the point where we have almost made amends
I think it's the getting to the point that is the hardest part"
-Call and Answer

"I'm not trying to sing a love song--I'm trying to sing in tune
I know I am sometimes headstrong
Falling in love, catching fire---I want to be consumed
Wondering will I ever tire, will I ever tire?"
-These Apples

"I'm so smart, too bad I can't get anything figured out"
-Falling for the First Time

"A is what Fonzie said, 'cause he was very cool"
-A

I could go on forever...they are the absolute best! :D

Pearl Jam's Immortality. Many say that it was written about Kurt Cobain's death but I think that some of the lyrics can pertain to anyone's life:
Vacate is the word
Vengence has no place he swears to her
Cannot find the comfort in this world
Artificial tears, vessel stabbed "Next up volunteers"...
Vulnerable, wisdom can't adhere
A truant finds home, and a wish to hold on
But there's a trapdoor in the sun
Immortality
As priveledged as a whore
Victims in demand for public show
Swept out through the cracks beneath the door
Holier than how. How?
Surrendered, executed anyhow.
Scrawl dissolved, cigar box on the floor.
A truant finds home, and a wish a to hold on to
He saw a trap door in the sun
Immortality
Cannot stop the thought running in the dark
Coming up a which way sign
All good truants must decide
Oh, stripped and sold mom
Auctioned forearm
And whiskers in the sink
Truants move on, cannot stay long
Some die just to live....

Then, Pearl Jam's Betterman which I think many girls out there can relate to. ;)
Waiting....watching the clock it's 4 o'clock
It's got to stop
Tell him. Take no more.
She practices her speech as he opens the door.
She rolls over, pretends to sleep as he looks her over.
She lies and says she's in love with him.
Can't find a betterman.
She dreams in color, she dreams in red.
Can't find a betterman....
Talking to herself, "there's no one else so he's the one"
She tells herself
Memories back when she was bold and strong
And waiting for the world to come along
Swears she knew it now she swears he's gone
She's lies and says she's in love with him
Can't find a betterman
She dreams in color, she dreams in red
Can't find a betterman....
She loved him, she don't want to leave this way
She feeds him, that's why she'll be back again
Can't find a betterman....

Just a funny note on this song. I was at work once and this song was playing on the radio. Eddie Vedder sings "she lies and says she's in love with him" and this guy I'm working with says "Bitch!" It was out of nowhere but still strangely appropriate.

Wonderful Tonight
by Eric Clapton

It's late in the evening; she's wondering what clothes to wear.
She puts on her make-up and brushes her long blonde hair.
And then she asks me, "Do I look all right?"
And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight."

We go to a party and everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady that's walking around with me.
And then she asks me, "Do you feel all right?"
And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight."

I feel wonderful because I see
The love light in your eyes.
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize how much I love you.

It's time to go home now and I've got an aching head,
So I give her the car keys and she helps me to bed.
And then I tell her, as I turn out the light,
I say, "My darling, you were wonderful tonight.
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight."

I love this song!

"You kick my foot under the table,
I kick you back, can't say I'm able
To stand for you, or fall for you
Ever again.
Wish for a perfect setting?
Wishing that I'm letting you
Take me where you want me
All over again
You can't give yourself
Absolutely to someone else."
- Do You Sleep? - Lisa Loeb


"Hey, don't write yourself off yet
It's only in your head
You feel left out or
Looked down on
Just try your best
Try everything you can
And don't you worry
What they tell themselves
When you're away"

TORN by: Natalie Imbruglia

I thought I saw a man brought to life
He was warm, he came around like he was dignified
He showed me what it was to cry
Well you couldn't be that man I adored
You don't seem to know
Don't seem to care what your heart is for
But I don't know him anymore
There's nothing where he used to lie
My conversation has run dry
That's what's going on
Nothing's fine
I'm torn

An Innocent Man, Billy Joel

Some people stay far away from the door
If there's a chance of it opening up
They hear a voice in the hall outside
And hope that it just passes by

Some people live with the fear of a touch
And the anger of having been a fool
They will not listen to anyone
So nobody tells them a lie

I know you're only protecting yourself
I know you're thinking of somebody else
Someone who hurt you
But I'm not above
Making up for the love
You've been denying you could ever feel
I'm not above doing anything
To restore your faith if I can
Some people see through the eyes of the old
Before they ever get look at the young
I'm only willing to hear you cry
Because I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am

Some people say they will never believe
Another promise they hear in the dark
Because they only remember too well
They heard somebody tell them before
Some people sleep all alone every night
Instead of taking a lover to bed
Some people find that's it's easier to hate
Than to wait anymore
I know you don't want to hear what I say
I know you're gonna keep turning away
But I've been there and if I can survive
I can keep you alive
I'm not above going through it again
I'm not above being cool for a while
If you're cruel to me I'll understand

Some people run from a possible fight
Some people figure they can never win
And although this is a fight I can lose
The accused is an innocent man
Oh yes I am
An innocent man

You know you only hurt yourself out of spite
I guess you'd rather be a martyr tonight
That's your decision
But I'm not below
Anybody I know
If there's a chance of resurrecting a love
I'm not above going back to the start
To find out where the heartache began

Some people hope for a miracle cure
Some people just accept the world as it is
But I'm not willing to lay down and die
Because I am an innocent man

I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am
An innocent man

*Precious Things-- Tori Amos
He said you're really an ugly girl
But I like the way you play
And I died
But I thanked him
Can you believe that
sick
sick
holding on to his picture
Dressing up every day


I wanna smash the faces
Of those beautiful boys
Those christian boys
So you can make me cum
that doesn't make you Jesus


These precious things
Let them bleed
Let them wash away
These precious things
Let them break their hold over me



I Love Tori.............

I have seen where the wolf has slept by the silver stream.
I can tell by the mark he left you were in his dream.
Ah, child of countless trees.
Ah, child of boundless seas.
What you are, what you're meant to be
Speaks his name, though you were born to me,
Born to me,
Cassidy...

Lost now on the country miles in his Cadillac.
I can tell by the way you smile he's rolling back.
Come wash the nighttime clean,
Come grow this scorched ground green,
Blow the horn, tap the tambourine
Close the gap of the dark years in between
You and me,
Cassidy...

Quick beats in an icy heart.
catch-colt draws a coffin cart.
There he goes now, here she starts:
Hear her cry.
Flight of the seabirds, scattered like lost words
Wheel to the storm and fly.

Faring thee well now.
Let your life proceed by its own design.
Nothing to tell now.
Let the words be yours, I'm done with mine.
(Repeat)

somebody already quote some words of Scarlet Begonias. But I feel the whole lyric need to be said cause it's such a great song, consider one of the best song by Garcia/Hunter.

Scarlet Begonias - Grateful Dead (Garcia/Hunter)

As I was walkin' round Grosvenor Square
Not a chill to the winter
but a nip to the air
From the other direction
she was calling my eye
It could be an illusion
but I might as well try
Might as well try.

She had rings on her fingers and
bells on her shoes,
And I knew without askin' she was
into the blues
Scarlet begonias
tucked into her curls
I knew right away
she was not like other girls--
other girls


In the thick of the evening
when the dealing got rough
She was too pat to open and
too cool to bluff
As I picked up my matches and
was closing the door
I had one of those flashes:
I'd been there before--
been there before.


[Bridge]
I ain't often right
but I've never been wrong
It seldom turns out the way
it does in the song
Once in a while
you get shown the light
in the strangest of places
if you look at it right


Well there ain't nothin' wrong
with the way she moves
Or scarlet begonias or a
touch of the blues
And there's nothing wrong with
the love that's in her eye
I had to learn the hard way
to let her pass by--
let her pass by


The wind in the willows played Tea for Two
The sky was yellow and the sun was blue
Strangers stopped strangers
just to shake their hand
Everybody's playing
in the Heart of Gold Band
Heart of Gold Band

Better Than Ezra- "A lifetime"

And you move like water
I could drown in you.
And I fell so deep once,
Till you pulled me through

You would tell me
"No one is allowed to be so proud
They never reach out
When they're giving up."




Sounds like me

I hate you, but I love you
I can't stop thinking of you
It's true, I'm stuck on you
Stacy something or other... "Stuck"


What else should I be
All apologies
What else should I say
Everyone is gay
What else could I write
I don't have the right
What else should I be
All apologies....

I wish I was like you
Easily amused
Find my nest of salt
Everything is my fault
I'll take all the blame
Aqua seafoam shame
Sunburn with freezer burn
Choking on the ashes of her enemy...
Nirvana "All apologies"

Both of these songs remind me of my life in past and present.

There's something about the look in your eyes
Something I noticed when the light was just right
It reminded me twice that I was alive
And it reminded me that you're so worth the fight
My biggest fear will be the rescue of me
Strange how it turns out that way
Could you show me dear...something I've not seen?
Something infinitely interesting
There's something about the way you move
I see your mouth in slow motion when you sing
More subtle than something, someone contrives
Your movements echo that I have seen the real thing
Your biggest fear will be the rescue of you
Strange how it turns out that way
Could you show me dear...something I've not seen?
Something infinitely interesting
~"Echo" by Incubus


You walked into the room
And the whole place stopped to notice
Standing next to you, I feel hopeless and you know this
I've never been ashamed of my attraction
I'd be happy if you gave me just a fraction
As we danced, I could see in your eyes
You and me as senior citizens in love
I followed your perfume out away from all the rabble
Right up to your room for a drink and travel Scrabble
You, stationed in the warm glow of the t.v.
Too patient as I'm playing L(1)O(1)V(4)E(1)
~"Conventioneers" by Barenaked Ladies


You came to me like wine comes to this mouth
Grown tired of water all the time
You quench my heart and you quench my mind

Mmmm...

"If it's love" she said, "then we're gonna have to think about the
consequences," 'cuz she can't stop shaking and I can't stop touching her and...
This time when kindness falls like rain, it washes her away, and Anna begins to change her mind.
"These seconds when I'm shaking leave me shuddering
for days" she says.
And I'm not ready for this sort of thing.
But I'm not gonna break and I'm not going to worry about it anymore.
I'm not gonna bend. And I'm not gonna break and I'm not gonna worry about it anymore.
It seems like I should say, "As long as this is love..." but it's not all that easy, so maybe I should just snap her up in a butterfly net, pin her down on a photograph album.
I am not worried. I've done this sort of thing before, but then I start to think about the consequences because I don't get no sleep in a quiet room and...
The time when kindness falls like rain, it washes me away, and Anna begins change my mind.
And every time she sneezes I believe it's love, and oh lord, I'm not ready for this sort of thing.
She's talking in her sleep. It's keeping me awake, and Anna begins to toss and turn.
And every word is nonsense but I understand and oh lord, I'm not ready for this sort of thing.

Show me a smile then,
Don't be unhappy, can't remember
When I last saw you laughing
If this world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I'll be there
And I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

All I want in life's a little bit of love to take the pain away
Getting strong today, a giant step each day
I've been told only fools rush in, only fools rush in
But I don't believe, I don't believe- I could still fall in love with you
I will love you till I die, and I will love you all the time
So please put your sweet hand in mine, and float in space and drift in time
All my time until I die, we'll float in space just you and I
So please put your sweet hand in mine, and float in space and drift in time
I'll love you to death, I guess that's what you get
And I don't know where we are all going to
Love don't get stranger, it is what it is
And I don't know where we are all going to
Everythung happens today, and that's what you get
And I don't know where we are all going to

--"ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space," spiritualized

I was talking, not two days ago
To a certain bartender I' lucky to know
And I asked Henry, my bartending friend
If I should bother dating unfamous men

And Henry said, "You're lucky to even know me.
You're lucky to be alive. You're lucky to be drinking here for free cause I'm a
Sucker for your lucky, pretty eyes."

And then he said, "Do you want to be a Polyester Bride?
Or do you want to hang your head and die?
Do you want to find alligator cowboy booths they just put on sale?
Do you want to flap your wings and fly away from here?"

I was sitting, not two days ago
Feeling lonely 'cause I'm just feeling low
And I asked Henry, my bartending friend
Why it is that there are those kind of men

"Princess, do you
Really want to flap your wings and fly...
Because you've got time."
He keeps telling me, "You've got time."
But I don't believe him
"You've got time."
I keep on pushing harder...
I keep on pushing farther away
But he keeps telling me, "Baby, baby, do you want to be a polyester bride?"
"Do you want to flap your wings and fly away from here?"

Tight Rope

there is a thin line between what is good and
what is evil
and I will tiptoe down that line
but I will feel unstable
my life is a circus and I am tripping down the tightrope
well there is nothing to save me now
I'm falling to the ground down to the ground
all the way down.



I think we all can identify w/ this.

I'm going to go with my two favorite songs. Tiny Dancer, for one. That's just "my" song... and don't even get me started when Tim McGraw covered it! Hearing it live by Mr. McGraw was a happy happy moment. :)

"Blue jean baby, LA lady, she was a seamstress for the band, pretty-eyed, pirate smile, she'll marry a music man... ballerina, you must've seen her, dancing in the sand." It's so ME (aside from the seamstress for the band bit, but the rest describes me- well, hopefully I'll marry a music man ;))

And my favorite lyrics EVER (who cares if they don't relate to me?) come from my favorite John Mayer song "Comfortable." My most favorite lyrics are BOLDED. Beautiful song.

"I just remembered, that time at the market
snuck up behind me and jumped on my shopping cart
And rode down, aisle 5
You looked behind you to smile back at me
crashed into a rack full of magazines
They asked us, if we could leave.

Can't remember, what went wrong last September
but I'm sure that you'd remind me, if you had to

Our love was, comfortable and
so broken in

I sleep with this new girl I'm still getting used to
my friends all approve, say 'shes gonna be good for you'
They throw me, high fives

She says the bible is all that she reads
and prefers that I not use profanities
Your mouth was, so dirty

Life of the party
and she swears that she's artsy
but you could distinguish
Miles from Coltrane

Our love was, comfortable and
so broken in
She's perfect, so flawless
or so they say, say

She thinks I can't see the smile that shes faking
and poses for pictures that aren't being taken
I loved you
grey sweat pants, no makeup, so perfect

Our love was, comfortable and
so broken in
she's perfect, so flawless
I'm not impressed, I want you back."

You and I Both

and it's okay if you have go away
just remember the telephone works both ways
and if I never ever hear it ring
if nothing else I'll think the bells inside
have finally found you someone else and that's okay
cause I'll remember everything you sang

This is my favorite song . . .

"In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel

Love I get so lost, sometimes
days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
when I want to run away
I drive off in my car
but whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are
All my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside
In your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
the heat I see in your eyes
Love, I don't like to see so much pain
so much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for out survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive
And all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside
In your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
the heat I see in your eyes
in your eyes

i keep on fallin
iiiin and out

sometimes you make me blue
sometimes i feel good
at times i feel used
lovin you darlin
leaves me so confused

iiii keep on fallin
in and out
of love
with you
i never
loved someone
th'way that i loved you

oh i never felt this way
how do you give me so much pleasure
but cause me so much pain
just when i think
i takin more than woulda fool
i start fallin, back in love with you

chorus--alicia keys, fallin

shattered dreams
worthless years
here am i encased a hollow shell
life begins
then is done
now i stare into a cold and empty world

the many sounds that meet our ears
the sights our eyes behold
will open up our achin hearts
and feed our empty souls

i believe when i fall in love with you it will be forever
i believe when i fall in love this time it will be forever

without despair
we will share
in the joys of care and will not be erased
what has been
must never end
and with the strenght we have won't be erased

when the trees of love are planted firm
they won't be hard to find
and the words of love i speak to you
will echo in my mind

chorus--stevie wonder, i believe

WYCLEF excuse me
if you see me screamin
cuz deep in my mind
i'm only dreamin
cuz if i wake, girl, and you're
not by my side
i feel like half of me
is no longer alive

so please, shorty
b/4 you walk out that door, booby
would you listen to my song

CLAUDETTE if only, i give you one last chance
with the devil
you can no longer dance
you've got to be faithful
so we could be fruitful
build a family
and follow God's destiny
so just b/4 i run to the block, poppy
i might to listen to your song

WYCLEF they say two wrongs don't make it right
so if i'm wrong
i ain't tryin to fight
i'm tryin to have some dinner with some candlelight
lay up in the bed and make love all night

CLAUDETTE so poppy i won't leave
maybe i'll just stay
just promise me that you'll do this thing

WYCLEF and i'm gon' love ya like i never loved
CLAUDETTE touch me like you never touched me
WYCLEF yo if you give me the chance, girl, i'm gonna show you

CLAUDETTE now baby understand
that i forgive you
i ain't forget that you brought me here

WYCLEF but i have grown
from a thug to a man
built my castle with bricks
and no longer with sand

chorus

CLAUDETTE can't see the sunshine no mo'
i'm so used to pain, baby, cuz
the sickness feels like the cure

WYCLEF but it won't here
you gave me
the keys to your soul
and let me in
i'm gonna love you over, and over again

chorus--two wrongs, wyclef and claudette (from city high)

So many Billy Joel Lyrics...

Uptown Girl, Piano Man, For the Longest Time, Always a Woman, Only the Good Die Young, Tell Her About It, Still Rock'n'Roll to Me, Hey Girl, She's Got a Way, If I Only Had the Words, We Didn't Start the Fire...

But the one that explains the most about my life:

You May Be Right

Friday night I crashed your party,
Saturday I said I'm sorry,
Sunday came and trashed me out again,
I was only having fun,
Wasn't hurting anyone,
And we all enjoyed the weekend for a change.
I've been stranded in the combat zone,
Walked through Bedford Stuy alone,
Even rode my motorcycle in the rain,
And you told me not to drive,
But I made it home alive,
So you said that only proves that I'm insane.
You may be right,
I may be crazy,
But it just might be a lunatic you're looking for,
Turn out the light,
Don't try to save me,
You may be wrong for all I know,
But you may be right.
Remember how I found you there,
Alone in your electric chair,
I told you dirty jokes until you smiled,
You were lonely for a [wo]man,
I said, "Take me as I am,
'Cause you might enjoy some madness for a while."
Now think of all the years you tried to,
Find someone to satisfy you,
I might be as crazy as you say,
If I'm crazy then it's true,
That it's all because of you,
And you wouldn't want it anyother way.
You may be right,
I may be crazy,
But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for,
It's too late fight,
It's too late to change me,
You may be wrong for all I know,
But you may be right.
You may be wrong,
But you may be right.

You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need.
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street,
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed.
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight,
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking.

And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.
You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.

You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder.
You know it's going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you
get older.
And in the end you'll pack up and fly down south,
Hide your head in the sand,
Just another sad old man,
All alone and dying of cancer.

And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest you have sown.
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone.
And it's too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw
around.
So have a good drown, as you go down, all alone,
Dragged down by the stone.

I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused.
Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used.
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise.
If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this
maze?

Deaf, dumb, and blind, you just keep on pretending
That everyone's expendable and no-one has a real friend.
And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner
And everything's done under the sun,
And you believe at heart, everyone's a killer.

Who was born in a house full of pain.
Who was trained not to spit in the fan.
Who was told what to do by the man.
Who was broken by trained personnel.
Who was fitted with collar and chain.
Who was given a pat on the back.
Who was breaking away from the pack.
Who was only a stranger at home.
Who was ground down in the end.
Who was found dead on the phone.
Who was dragged down by the stone.

and this awkward kiss that tells of other people's lips will be of service
to keeping you away. - dashboard

Does it comfort you to know you fought the good fight?
Basking in your victory,
hollow and alone
to boast your bitter bragging rights to anyone who'll listen.
While you're left with nothing tangible to gain. - dashboard

Switchfoot has amazing lyrics...

There's always something in the way
There's always something getting through
It's not me
It's you
--"You"

It's all a dream
Life on a movie screen
And I'm sitting on the edge of my seat
I can't tell what happens next
-Edge of my Seat

I'm a plane in the sunset with no where to land
--"Let That Be Enough"

Do me a favor
Would you sing this to me slow?
Cause I'm thinking it's my song
--"Playing for Keeps"

Nothing but a chemical in my head
It's nothing but laziness
Cause I don't wanna read the book
I'll watch the movie
Cause it's not me
I'm just like everybody else my age
I think I'd rather play around
And I think I'd rather watch TV
Cause I don't wanna face my fears
I'll watch the movie
Cause it's not me
I'm just like everybody else
I'm just like everybody else
Because I don't wanna be here
I don't wanna see this now
It's all wrong but it's alright
And I don't wanna be here
And I don't wanna study now
It's all wrong but it's alright
I don't know what love is
I don't know who I am
And if I ever want to find out
I'll watch the movie
--"Chem6A"

And of course some Madonna--

Boys may come and boys may go
And that's all right you see
Experience has made me rich
And now they're after me
--"Material Girl"

'N Sync God Must Have Spent (A Little More Time On You)

Yeah....
Oh yes
Ohhh..yeah..
Can this be true?
Tell me, can this be real?
How can I put into words what I feel?
My life was complete
I thought I was whole
Why do I feel like I'm losing control?
I never thought that love could feel like this
and you've changed my world with just one kiss.
How can it be that right here with me
there's an angel?
It's a miracle...


Your love is like a river
Peaceful and deep
Your soul is like a secret
That I could never keep
When I look into your eyes
I know that it's true
God must of spent...
A little more time
On you...
(A little more time, yes he did baby)


In all of creation
All things great and small
You are the one that surpasses them all
More precious than
Any diamond or pearl
They broke the mold
When you came in this world
And I'm trying hard to figure out
Just how I ever did without
The warmth of your smile
The heart of a child
That's deep inside
Leaves me purified

Your love is like a river
Peaceful and deep (and deep)
Your soul is like a secret
That I could never keep
When I look into your eyes
I know that it's true
God must of spent...
A little more time
On you...
(on you, on you, on you, you....on you, on you, on you, you..) ohhh...
(on you, on you, on you, you....on you, on you, on you, you..) yeah...

Never thought that love could feel like this
and you changed my world with just one kiss.
How can it be that right here with me
There's an angel?
It's a miracle...

Your love is like a river
Peaceful and deep (peaceful and deep)
Your soul is like a secret
That I could never keep
When I look into your eyes
I know that it's true
God must of spent...
A little more time
On you...
(on you, on you, on you, you..)
God must of spent...
A little more time
on you
(on you, on you..you....you..oooh..yeah)
A little more time
on you...ohhh


'N Sync This I Promise You

Ohh ohh...

When the visions around you,
Bring tears to your eyes
And all that surround you,
Are secrets and lies
I'll be your strength,
I'll give you hope,
Keeping your faith when it's gone
The one you should call,
Was standing here all along..

And I will take
You in my arms
And hold you right where you belong
Till the day my life is through
This I promise you
This I promise you

I've loved you forever,
In lifetimes before
And I promise you never...
Will you hurt anymore
I give you my word
I give you my heart (give you my heart)
This is a battle we've won
And with this vow,
Forever has now begun...

Just close your eyes (close your eyes)
Each loving day (each loving day)
I know this feeling won't go away (no..)
Till the day my life is through
This I promise you..
This I promise you..

Over and over I fall (over and over I fall)
When I hear you call
Without you in my life baby
I just wouldn't be living at all...

And I will take (I will take you in my arms)
You in my arms
And hold you right where you belong (right where you belong)
Till the day my life is through
This I promise you baby

Just close your eyes
Each loving day (each loving day)
I know this feeling won't go away (no..)
Every word I say is true
This I promise you

Every word I say is true
This I promise you
Ooh, I promise you...

My favorite lyrics from a song are from Live's "Dance With You":

The stillness in your eyes convinces me that I, I don't know a thing, and I've been around the world. And I, I drank up all the wines a half a million times. Came sick into your shores. You showed me what this life is for.

"I Wish for You" by Jessica Andrews
I love this song so much. It's sorta become my anthem on how to live life!

Time goes by so fast, and days they seem to dance into the distance until they're gone. If I had a map to lead you down life's path, I'd give it to you but I don't. So go on...

Chorus:
Cry hard, laugh loud, be humble, stand proud and don't be afraid of your fears.
Let love break your heart, just be who you are...all of this, all that there is, I wish for you.

You can never know which way your world will turn, how the stars are gonna fall. Salty tears they burn, and there are lessons you will learn. But you'll be stronger for it all...

I would have to say The Bridge Song by Diswalla and the Hang by Matchbox 20

The Bridge Song - DIshwalla

And itís getting so much harder to be one these days
So much harder to believe
So much harder to be one these days
So much harder to believe


And did they know that theyíd need a fence so high
Cause giving up is a total waste of time
I stop to breathe in air as I
Watch the ground beneath us blend into the sky
I donít know where to go

I feel like this nearly everyday... it's so awesome though!! My new fav.

Artist: Alan Jackson & Jimmy Buffett
Song: It's 5 O'clock Somwhere

Lyrics:

The sun is hot and that old clock is movin' slow
And so am I
The workday passes like molasses in wintertime
But it's July

I'm gettin' paid by the hour and older by the minute
My boss just pushed me over the limit
I'd like to call it somethin'
I think I'll just call it a day

Chorus
Pour me somethin' tall and strong
Make it a hurricane before I go insane
It's only half past twelve but I don't care
It's 5 O'clock somewhere

This lunch break is gonna take all afternoon
half the night
Tomorrow morning I know they'll be hell to pay
Hey, but that's alright

I ain't had a day off now in over a year
My Jamican vacation's gonna start right here
Get the phones for me
You can tell 'em I just sailed away

Chorus
Pour me somethin' tall and strong
Make it a hurricane before I go insane
It's only half past twelve but I don't care
It's 5 O'clock somewhere

I could pay off my tab
Pour myself in a cab
And be back to work before 2

At a moment like this
I can't help but wonder
What would Jimmy Buffet do?

Jimmy Buffet
Funny you should ask that
I'd say
Pour me somethin' tall and strong
Make it a hurricane before I go insane
It's only half past twelve but I don't care

Jimmy buffett and Alan Jackson together
Pour me somethin' tall and strong
Make it a hurricane before I go insane
It's only half past twelve but I don't care
Alan Jackson: He don't care... I don't care
It's five o'clock somewhere

Jimmy Buffett
What time zone am I on?
What country am I in?

Alan Jackson
It doesn't matter, it's five o'clock somewhere

Jimmy Buffett
It's always on 5 in margarittaville come to think of it

Alan Jackson
I heard that

Jimmy Buffett
You've been to there haven't ya?

Alan Jackson
Yes sir.

Jimmy Buffett
I seen your boat there

Alan Jackson
I've been to margarittaville a few times

Jimmy Buffett
Alright, well that's good.

Alan Jackson
I'm on my way back.

Jimmy Buffett
Well alright, I just wanna make sure you can keep it between the navigational beacon.
Alright, well it's five o'clock, let's go somewhere.

Alan Jackson
I'm ready, crank it up.

Jimmy Buffett
Let's get outta here

Alan Jackson
I'm gone

Jimmy Buffett
Let's get outta here.

I absolutly fell in love with this song by Evanescence called "You". Its not a released song so if ya'll try to download it, it may be hard to find. Its such a beautiful song, it made me cry when i heard it. It was exactly how i feel about significant other. I'm thinking of singing it to him (he loves it when i sing to him he he)


The words have been drained from this pencil
Sweet words that I want to give you
And I cant sleep, I need to tell you... goodnight

When weíre together I fell perfect
When Iím pulled away from you I fall apart
All that you say is sacred to me
Your eyes are so blue, I canít look away as we lay in the stillness
You whisper to me, Lady, marry me, promise youíll stay with me
Oh you donít have to ask me, you know youíre all that I live for
You know Iíd die just to hold you, stay with you
Somehow Iíll show you that you are my night sky
Iíve always been right behind you
Now Iíll always be right beside you

So many nights Iíve cried myself to sleep
Now that you love me I love myself
I never thought I would say that
I never thought thereíd be you

What I Need To DO--Kenny Chesney!! :cool:

I keep tellin myself this is the right thing to do
I was wastin her time, waitin on dreams that just weren't comin true
And this old highway seems to understand
Leadin me on to somewhere that no one knows my name
I got the window rolled down, I got the radio up
I'm doin all that I can to get my mind off us

What I need to do is turn this car around
Drive as fast as I can til I see the lights of our hometown
And run to her, take her in my arms
Make her see how sorry I am, well that shouldn't be so hard
But I drive on, and on, and on

Eighty-seven more miles gets me into Baton Rogue
There's a buddy of mine who says he might find some work that I can do
Or maybe head up north to Knoxville, Tennessee
I know my baby sister, has got a couch where I can sleep
Now the sun's goin down on my broken heart
Lord, I gotta get bak before I go too far

What I need to do is turn this car around
Drive as fast as I can til I see the lights of our hometown
And run to her, take her in my arms
Make her see how sorry I am, well that shouldn't be so hard
But I drive on, and on, and on

But I drive on
Yes I drive on, and on, and on

Knowin what I need to do
Girl, I'm comin home to you

Knowin what I need to do
Girl I'm comin home to you
I'm comin home to you
Knowin what I need to do....




*Need I say more!! Best Song lyrics ever!!*

"Playin' With the Boys"
Top Gun Album

I'd say it was the right time
To walk away
When dreaming takes you nowhere
It's time to play
Bodies working overtime
Your money don't matter
The clock keeps ticking
When someone's on your mind

I'm moving in slow motion
Feels so good
It's a strange anticipation
Knock, knock, knocking on wood
Bodies working overtime
Man against man
And all that ever matters
Is baby who's ahead in the game
Funny but it's always the same

Playing, playing with the boys
Playing, playing with the boys
After chasing sunsets
One of life's simple joys
Is playing with the boys

Said it was the wrong thing
For me to do
I said it's just a boys' game
Girls play too
My heart is working overtime
In this kind of game
People get hurt
I'm afraid that someone is me
If you want to find me, I'll be

Playing, playing with the boys
Staying, playing with the boys
After chasing sunsets
One of life's simple joys

I don't want to be the moth around your fire
I don't want to be obsessed by my desire
I'm ready, I'm leaving
I've seen enough
...with the boys
I've seen enough
You play too rough

Playing, playing with the boys
I'll be staying, playing with the boys
After chasing sunsets
One of life's simple joys
Is playing with the boys
Playing with the boys
Playing
Playing
Playing
Playing



Further proof that Top Gun was truly targeted at Gay men.

Attics of My Life (Hunter/Garcia)

In the attics of my life
Full of cloudy dreams unreal
Full of tastes no tongue can know
And lights no eye can see
When there was no ear to hear
You sang to me

I have spent my life
Seeking all that's still unsung
Bent my ear to hear the tune
And closed my eyes to see
When there were no strings to play
You played to me


In the book of love's own dream
Where all the print is blood
Where all the pages are my days
And all my lights grow old
When I had no wings to fly
You flew to me


You
flew
to me


In the secret space of dreams
Where I dreaming lay amazed
When the secrets all are told
And the petals all unfold
When there was no dream of mine
You dreamed of me

i like fifteen cause they put shit you don't want to see in front of your face & make you watch/hear it

i thought about this after seeing "poverty is a choice" in another thread

Prostitute - by Fifteen

Hey sister i see you standin on the corner
i think i might just, pull on over
see if you need some condoms
take a minute and listen to a mountain of problems
hey sister i see you stadin on the corner
i think i might just pull on over
you know the county pays me pretty well to make sure you dont get infected,
but, no one seems to care if you ever make it out of hell
i ask you how did you get here and you tell me:
"i was only twelve years old and daddy raped me,
over and over and over and over again.
i was only ten years old and my stepfather raped me,
over and over and over and over again.
i was only eight years old when mmas boyfriend raped me,
over and over and over and over again.
i was only 5 years old and the neighbor boy raped me,
over and over and over and over again"

The stories always the same, we can impose morality and blame and shame
we can criminalize the side effects of a lifetime of torture
we can moralize and look at things so biblically,
when you look at things so legally and think we're preserving order
we can swim in denial, and think that somehow jail can heal post traumatic disorder

Hey sister i see you at the bus stop, i can almost hear you askin God to make the pain stop
i know the drugs dont work anymore
you've got black eyes your arms are covered with sores

hey sister i see you waitin in line to get your methadone,
I can almost hear you wonderin' what would it be like to have some kind of home
the county pays pretty well to keep you strung out, just another
settlement, we'll give you anything, so that you never try to leave hell

i ask you how did you get here and you tell me:
"i was only twelve years old and daddy raped me,
over and over and over and over again.
i was only 10 years old and my stepfather raped me,
over and over and over and over again,
i was only 8 years old when mommas boyfriend raped me,
over and over and over andover again,
i was only 5 years old and the neighbor boy raped me,
over and over ad over ad over again."

the stories always the same, we can impose morality and blame and shame
we can criminalize the side effects of a lifetime of torture
we can moralize and look at things so biblically,
when you look at things so legally and think we're preserving order
we can swim in denial, and think that somehow jail can heal post traumatic disorder
you can get up and walk away from hell

LOVE THIS- Lord Anthony by Belle and Sebastian

The teacher's got no control
The boys all run riot
"You will stay quiet or you will die."

Tony, at the back of the gym
Smoke another one, your chances are slim,
'Cause here they come again
And they got you on the ground.
Tasting blood again;
At least it's your own.

When will you realize it doesn't pay
To be smarter than teachers, smarter than most boys?
"So shut your mouth, start kicking the football."
Bang on the teeth. You are off for a week, boy.

You may as well take it in the guts, it can't get worse.
Just take it in the guts, it can't get worse than this.'
