    INFJ - The Protectors

    Crowds jump to their deaths
    From the bridge as I drive by tonight
    And they missed out on it all
    The whole gist there as they fall
    You're not expected to know why in such a short time
    And there are things we never will define


    The Shins, Sphagnum Esplanade

    We can blow on our thumbs and posture
    But the lonely are such delicate things
    The wind from a wasp could blow them
    Into the sea
    With stones on their feet
    Lost to the light and the loving we need


    The Shins, A Comet Appears

    I could quote their whole discography with lyrics by James Mercer I'm smitten with and that resonate with me.

    Used to be by Arrows to Athens
    (where I got my username)

    Take a breath
    Take a long look around before you step
    'Cause the tide is coming, swallowing the ground
    And there's no way to tell if we will drown tonight
    Or we'll be found tonight

    I hope that fate will forgive us for tempting the sea
    I hope that they won't forget us
    But we cannot go back to the way it used to be

    One Day by Trading Yesterday

    If I could change the currents of our lives
    To make the river flow where it's run dry
    To be a prodigal of father time
    Then I would see you tonight


    ---

    She is the Sunlight by Trading Yesterday

    And if all the flowers faded away
    And if all the storm clouds decided to stay
    Then you would find me
    Each hour the same
    Cause she is tomorrow
    And I am today

    Cause if right is leaving
    I'd rather be wrong
    Cause she is the sunlight
    The sun is gone

    Basically, anything written by David Hodges (he's been part of these two bands)!

    Swimming through the void
    We hear the word
    We lose ourselves
    But we find it all
    -System of a down

    Restless, chasing shadows
    Choices, facing Gallows
    Are you hanging by a thread
    Or swinging from the rope?
    Don't think we don't see your scars
    Are you afraid of who you are?

    This shows my age. It’s from the early 1980s by UK progressive rock band Marillion, about unrequited love:

    So here I am once more in the playground of the broken hearts
    One more experience, one more entry in a diary, self-penned
    Yet another emotional suicide overdosed on sentiment and pride
    Too late to say I love you, too late to re-stage the play
    Abandoning the relics in my playground of yesterday
    I'm losing on the swings, I'm losing on the roundabouts
    I'm losing on the swings, I'm losing on the roundabouts
    Too much, too soon, too far to go, too late to play, the game is over
    the game is over
    So here I am once more in the playground of the broken heart
    I'm losing on the swings, losing on the roundabouts, the game is over, over
    Yet another emotional suicide overdosed on sentiment and pride
    I'm losing on the swings, losing on the roundabouts, the game is over
    Too late to say I love you, too late to re-stage the play
    The game is over
    I act the role in classic style of a martyr carved with twisted smile
    To bleed the lyric for this song to write the rites to right my wrongs
    An epitaph to a broken dream to exorcise this silent scream
    A scream that's borne from sorrow
    I never did write that love song, the words just never seemed to flow
    Now sad in reflection did I gaze through perfection
    And examine the shadows on the other side of morning
    And examine the shadows on the other side of mourning
    Promised wedding now a wake!
    The fool who escaped from paradise will look over his shoulder and cry
    Sit and chew on daffodils and struggle to answer why?
    As you grow up and leave the playground
    Where you kissed your prince and found your frog
    Remember the jester that showed you tears, the script for tears
    So I'll hold my peace forever when you wear your bridal gown
    In the silence of my shame the mute that sang the sirens' song
    Has gone solo in the game, I've gone solo in the game
    But the game is over
    Can you still say you love me

    They say you have to have somebody
    They say you have to be someone
    They say if you're not lonely alone, boy there is something wrong

    Nada Surf "I Like What You Say"
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    Your heart felt good
    It was dripping pitch and made of wood

    Modest Mouse "3rd Planet"
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    Oh Elise, it doesn't matter what you say
    I just can't stay here every yesterday
    Like keep on acting out the same
    The way we act out
    Every way to smile, forget
    And make-believe we never needed
    Any more than this
    Any more than this

    Oh Elise, it doesn't matter what you do
    I know, I'll never really get inside of you
    To make your eyes catch fire
    The way they should

    The way the blue could pull me in
    If they only would, if they only would
    At least I'd lose this sense of sensing something else
    That hides away

    From me and you, they're worlds to part
    With aching looks and breaking hearts
    And all the prayers your hands can make
    Oh I just take as much as you can throw
    And then throw it all away
    Oh I throw it all away
    Like throwing faces at the sky
    Like throwing arms 'round

    Yesterday, I stood and stared, wide-eyed in front of you
    And the face I saw looked back the way I wanted to
    But I just can't hold my tears away the way you do
    Elise believe, I never wanted this
    I thought this time, I'd keep all of my promises
    I thought you were the girl, I always dreamed about
    But I let the dream go and the promises broke
    And make-believe ran out


    So Elise, it doesn't matter what you say
    I just can't stay here every yesterday
    Like keep on acting out the same
    The way we act out
    Every way to smile, forget
    And make-believe we never needed
    Any more than this
    Any more than this

    And every time I try to pick it up
    Like falling sand
    As fast as I pick it up
    It runs away through my clutching hands

    But there's nothing else I can really do
    There's nothing else I can really do
    There's nothing else I can really do
    At all

    The Cure "A Letter to Elise"

    Put your lighter in the air and lead me back home
    When it's all said and done I'll follow the echoes
    I hear you night after night calling out my name
    And I find myself running to meet you
    I didn't want to escape
    From the bricks that I laid down

    You are the only one
    The only one that sees me
    Trusts me and believes me
    You are the only one
    The only one that knows me
    And in the dark you show me
    Yeah it's perfectly reckless
    Damn, you leave me defenseless
    So break in
    Break in

    You let me fall apart without letting go
    Then you pick up the pieces and you make me whole
    I didn't want to escape
    From the bricks that I laid down

    You are the only one
    The only one that sees me
    Trusts me and believes me
    You are the only one
    The only one that knows me
    And in the dark you show me
    Yeah it's perfectly reckless
    Damn you leave me defenseless
    So break in

    And take everything I have
    Until there is nothing left
    Until it's just your voice in my head
    And when the lights come on
    You see me as I am
    You're still inside me

    You are the only one
    The only one that sees me
    Trusts me and believes me
    You are the only one
    The only one that knows me
    And in the dark you show me
    Yeah it's perfectly reckless
    Damn you leave me defenseless
    So break in
    Break in

    Put your lighter in the air and lead me back home

    The lyrics to Snuff by Slipknot.
    Particularly this line:
    "It took the death of hope to let you go"

    Wow, so very many songs to choose from... Right now, probably Through the Glass by Stone Sour.


    I'm looking at you through the glass
    Don't know how much time has passed
    Oh God, it feels like forever
    But no one ever tells you that forever feels like home
    Sitting all alone inside your head

    'Cause I'm looking at you through the glass
    Don't know how much time has passed
    All I know is that it feels like forever
    When no one ever tells you that forever feels like home
    Sitting all alone inside your head

    How do you feel? That is the question
    But I forget, you don't expect an easy answer
    When something like a soul becomes initialized
    And folded up like paper dolls and little notes
    You can't expect a bit of hope
    And while you're outside looking in
    Describing what you see
    Remember what you're staring at is me

    Leonard on breaking up, and finding new love, and breaking up again, and love generally speaking, and life - or every song he ever wrote:

    Yeah the wars, they will be fought again
    The holy dove - she will be caught again
    Bought and sold, and bought again
    The dove is never free.

    Ring the bells that still can ring
    Forget your perfect offering
    There is a crack, a crack in everything
    That's how the light gets in.

    - Leonard Cohen, Anthem
