It's pretty basic. Any lyrics you can think of that reflect your current state of mind or emotions? Maybe your personality or lifestyle? Post them here!
I'll go first.

Mine are from Björk's song Wanderlust off her Volta album. In addition to express my dissatisfaction with the people who live in my city, they reflect my intentions to study abroad next year. I've already begun the process of preparing myself, all I have to do now is graduate.

"I am leaving this harbor
Giving urban a farewell
Its habitants seem too keen on God
I cannot stomach their rights and wrong"

Generally, to me a very ENFJ song that may describe ENFJs very well is Cameo Lover by Kimbra.

It can go both ways. There are ENFJs that are so guarded that they tend to keep their emotions to themselves and we have bubbly ENFJs that would want people to love and open up with them. The tune is also not so giddy and cheery, somewhat like ENFJs. Our personalities are very optimistic and happy, but that doesn't mean we just let go of ourselves. The tune of this song, even if it is indeed upbeat and happy, still sounds quite a little reserved to me. The song has potential to be very giddy and happy, but this isn't. Seeing my ENFJs, we are all so happy, but still very serious at the same time.

Here's the lyrics:
this is non stop baby
you've got me going crazy
your're heavier then i knew
but i don't want no other
you're my cameo lover
only here for a moment or two
you stay in side that bubble
with all of your trouble
in your black hole
you turn from the skies
you dance with your demise
i'll be here when you come home, home

we've all gotta break down
let me come and break down there
with you

[CHOURUS]
cause everyday's like talking in your sleep
love is like a silhouette in dreams
open up you heart! open up your heart!
open up your heart and let me pull you out
everyday's like talking in you sleep
love is like a silhouette in dreams
open up you heart! open up your heart!
open up your heart and let me pull you out of here

i've got high hopes baby but all you do is take me down to depths
that i never knew
you've got two arms baby
they're all tangled in ladies of the black
skies posing blue
let go of your mother
and turn to your brother

not along gone lovers noose
sometimes baby the hardest part of
breaking
is leaving pieces behind you

oh we've all gotta get by
let me come and hold you high, with you

[CHOURUS]

open up your heart to me!
the sun won't shine if your not looking
love is all you need

when everyday's like talking in you sleep
love is like a silhouette in dreams
open up you heart. open open open...

when everyday's like talking in you sleep
love is like a silhouette in dreams
open up you heart! open up your heart!
open up your heart and let me pull you out

open up you heart! open up your heart!
open up you heart! open up your heart!
open up you heart! open up your heart!

You say you know just who I am
But you can't imagine
What waits for you across the line
You thought you had me
But I'm still here standing
And I'm tired of backing down

And I'm here now feeling the pain
Of a thousand hearts
Been to hell and back again
I won't take this

You try so hard to bring me down
You can't break the broken
You still don't seem to understand
It's your turn to see just
How it feels to be me
How it feels to be knocked down

And you're here now feeling the pain
Of a thousand hearts
You've been to hell and back again
You can't take this

Remember
This feeling

How it feels to be alive
Now you see me through my eyes
And we're here now feeling the beat
Of a thousand hearts
Coming back to life again
We can make it

Remember
This feeling
Remember...

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naive
I'm just out to find
The better part of me

I'm more than a bird, I'm more than a plane
I'm more than some pretty face beside a train
And it's not easy to be me

Wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home I'll never see

It may sound absurd, but don't be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed, but won't you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream
It's not easy to be me

Up, up and away, away from me
It's all right, you can all sleep sound tonight
I'm not crazy, or anything

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naive
Men weren't meant to ride
With clouds between their knees

I'm only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me
Inside of me
Inside me
Yeah, inside me
Inside of me

I'm only a man
In a funny red sheet
I'm only a man
Looking for a dream

I'm only a man
In a funny red sheet
And it's not easy

Its not easy to be me

As I am a songwriter and been writing some parts of songs this weekend this song and its lyrics would be very apt.

I've been alive forever, and I wrote the very first song
I put the words and the melodies together
I am music and I write the songs

CHORUS
I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

My home lies deep within you
And I've got my own place in your soul
Now, when I look out through your eyes
I'm young again, even though I'm very old

CHORUS

Oh my music makes you dance
And gives you spirit to take a chance
And I wrote some rock 'n' roll so you can move
Music fills your heart
Well, that's a real fine place to start
It's from me it's for you
It's from you, it's for me
It's a worldwide symphony

If there were song lyrics that were perfect for me, it would be Someone Like You by Adele....
Each word she uses means soo much to a girl who has gone through out of all the relations she has had,but that one guy who always stays in your mind....

@Samhain and @PaperStars You two are beautiful. Those two songs have definitely been shaping my current mindset for a while now.

There's a song that is absolutely frightening in how accurately it describes my situation. It's called "In California" by Joanna Newsom. Although the whole song fits me, I'll just quote the parts that really hit home.

Well, I have sown untidy furrows 'cross my soul but I am still a coward
Content to see my garden grow so sweet and full of someone else's flowers
Sometimes I can almost feel the power
Sometimes I am so in love with you
Like a little clock that trembles on the edge of the hour
Only ever calling out "cuck-oo, hoo-oo, hoo-oo"

...I wait all night for you in California
Watching the fox pick off my goldfish from their sorry, golden state
And I am no longer afraid of anything
Save the life that here awaits

I don't belong to anyone.
My heart is heavy as an oil drum.
I don't want to be alone.
My heart is yellow as an ear of corn,
and I have torn my soul apart, from
pulling artlessly with fool commands.
Some nights
I just never go to sleep at all,
and I stand,
shaking in the doorway like a sentinel,
all alone,
bracing like the bow upon a ship,
and fully abandoning
any thought of anywhere
but home,
my home.
Sometimes I can almost feel the power.
And I do love you.
Is it only timing,
that has made it such a dark hour,
only ever chiming out,
"Cuckoo, cuckoo"?

My heart, I wear you down, I know
Gotta think straight,
Keep a clean plate;
keep from wearing down.
If I lose my head
Just where am I going to lay it?

(For it has half-ruined me,
to be hanging around,
here, among the Daphne,
blooming out the big brown;
I am native to it, but I'm overgrown.
I am choked my roots
on the earth, as rich as roe,
here,
down in California)

So yeah, that's actually 3/4 of the song, but I can't help it. :bored:
