What lyrics do you identify deeply with?

Mine are:

Gabrielle If You Ever With East 17 Lyrics


The very first time that I saw your brown eyes
Your lips said hello and I said hi
I knew right then you were the one
But I was caught up in physical attraction
But to my satisfaction
Baby you were more than just a friend

And if you ever fall in love again
You must make sure that the lady is a friend
And if you ever fall in love so true
You must be sure that she feels the same way too

If I said that I would be your one and only
Promise that you'd never leave me lonely
I just want to be the one you need
I just want to be the one to serve you
Sometimes I feel as if I don't deserve you
I cherish every moment that we share

And if you ever fall in love again
You must be sure that the lady is a friend
And if you ever fall in love so true
You must be sure that she feels the same way too

The very first time that I saw your brown eyes
Your lips said hello and I said hi
I knew right then you were the one
And I was caught up in physical attraction
But to my satisfaction
Baby you were more than just a friend

And if you ever fall in love again
You must be sure that the lady is a friend
And if you ever fall in love so true
You must be sure that she feels the same way too

And if you ever fall in love again
You must be sure that the lady is a friend
And if you ever fall in love so true
You must be sure that she feels the same way too

And if you ever fall in love again
You must be sure that the lady is a friend
And if you ever fall in love so true
You must be sure that she feels the same way too

I had to do a presentation in class once and I had a stalker-girl interested in me. I put this song up intentionally for my part, I wonder if she got the message.



under the surface
we're all the same
searching for purpose
running from shame
im sorry im not all the things that you want
all the things that you thought i would be

i guess im not like you,
not something you're used too
maybe something brand new
you've never seen
i wish i could read your mind,
be one of your kind,
i missed you in my time, misunderstood
i wish i could somehow be
all that you want from me,
im in good company

i got your letter, but tell me who's to blame,
and do you feel bettter, causing me pain?
So much pain.

im sorry im not all the things that you want

I wish i could read your mind, be one of your kind.
I missed you in my time- misunderstood.
I wish i could somehow be all that you want from me.
I'm in good company- misunderstood.
Misunderstood.
I kinda wish that i could be understood.

Im sorry im not all the things that you want,
all the things that you thought i would be.
Im so sorry. Im so sorry.
I wish i could read your mind, be one of your kind,
i missed you in my time- misunderstood.
i wish i could somehow be all that you want from me.
im in good company- misunderstood. Misunderstood.
I wish that i could be understood.

Under the surface- we're all the same

edit: oh and izzie, fire up a youtube link so I can follow along :D.

Also, the always classic Hercules song (Disney) is more-so around my philosophy. Totally corny, but I love it.

Disarm - Smashing Pumpkins

Disarm you with a smile
Cut you like you want me too
Cut that little child
Inside of me and such a part of you

I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my choice
What's a boy supposed to do
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love - I send a smile over to you

Disarm you with a smile
And leave you like they left me here
To wither in denial
The bitterness of one who's left alone

I am the son
And the heir
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
Of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way?
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

There's a club, if you'd like to go
You could meet somebody who really loves you
So you go, and you stand on your own
And you leave on your own
And you go home, and you cry
And you want to die

When you say it's gonna happen "now"
Well, when exactly do you mean?
See I've already waited too long
And all my hope is gone

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way?
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

sorry, I'm the archetypal angsty teenager haha

Somewhere Only We Know~ Keane


I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute, why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute, why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go? So why don't we go?

Oh, this could be the end of everything
So why don't we go somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know

I've been waiting for a guide to come and take me by the hand.
Could these sensations make me feel the pleasures of a normal man.
These sensations barely interest me for another day.
I've got the spirit, lose the feeling, take the shock away.

It's getting faster, moving faster now, it's getting out of hand.
On the tenth floor, down the backstairs, into no man's land.
Lights are flashing, cars are crashing, getting frequent now.
I've got the spirit, lose the feeling, let it out somehow.

What means to you, what means to me, and we will meet again.
I'm watching you, I'm watching her, I'll take no pity from you friends.
Who is right, who can tell and who gives a damn right now.

Until the spirit new sensation takes hold, then you know.(3 times)

I've got the spirit, but lose the feeling.(2 times)

Feeling.(7 times)


Then thirty three


Speak to me in a language I can hear
Humour me before I have to go
Deep in thought I forgive everyone
As the cluttered streets greet me once again
I know I can't be late
Supper's waiting on the table
Tomorrow's just an excuse away
So I pull my collar up and face the cold, on my own

The Earth laughs beneath my heavy feet
At the blasphemy in my old jangly walk
Steeple guide me to my heart and home
The sun is out and up and down again
I know I'll make it, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the Earth
And you can make it last forever
You can make it last forever

And for a moment I lose myself
Wrapped up in the pleasures of the world
I've journeyed here and there and back again
But in the same old haunts I still find my friends
Mysteries not ready to reveal
Sympathies I'm ready to return
I'll make the effort, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the Earth
Tomorrow's just an excuse
Tomorrow's just an excuse

And you can make it last forever

Life Is a Song by Patrick Park. My favorite line is:

Oh, it's time to let go of everything we used to know
Ideas that strengthen who we've been
It's time to cut ties that won't ever free our minds
From the chains and shackles that they're in

Whewww-ee! This is such a hard question. During my life there have been songs like a drops of rain from a cloudburst, but very few that watered my soul with sounds and words that seemed to know the sacred energies within me.

During the late teenage years, the song All Warm by Armor for Sleep was my anthem of escapism, and still the lyrics haunt me:

I'll find a cave for you
For you to run to
Nothing can break through stone
You'll sleep through winter

You'll never feel the cold
The years will be all warm

You'll bury yourself
When you've had enough
And the world will think
That you've just run off
But I'll always know how you chose to go
Inside your stone world
Where winter is broken

If I could build for you
A magic retreat from
Seasons that break your bones
Trust me I'd live to...(etc)


Later on, I watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and the theme for that movie reached far into my soul, both the plot theme and music theme. Here is the music theme by Jon Brion, no words, just music (all you who have watched this movie know what I mean!)....

Sorry, can't post Youtube link coz I guess I'm too new.

Miracle
Jon Bon Jovi

A penny for your thoughts now baby
Looks like the weight of the world's
On your shoulders now

I know you think you're going crazy
Just when it seems everything's
Gonna work itself out
They drive you right back down

And you said it ain't fair
That a man walks
When a bird can fly
We have to kick the ground
The stars kiss the sky
They say that spirits live
A man has to die
They promised us truth
Now they're giving us lies

Gonna take a miracle to save us this time
And your savior has just left town
Gonna need a miracle
'Cause it's all on the line
And I won't let you down
(No I won't let you down)
The river of your hope is flooding
And I know the dam is busted
If you need me I'll come running
I won't let you down... no, no

You're looking for salvation
You thought that it'd be shining
Like an angel's light
Well, the angels left this nation
And salvation caught the last train
Out tonight
He lost one hell of a fight

He said
I'm just one man, that's all I'll ever be
I never can be everything you wanted from me
I've got plans so big
That any blind man could see
I'm standing in the river
Now I'm drowning in the sea

Gonna take a miracle to save us this time
And your savior has just left town
Gonna need a miracle
'Cause your heart's on the line
And your heartbeat is slowing down
Your feet are grounded still
You're reaching for the sky
You can let 'em clip your wings
'Cause I believe that you can fly

Solo

Well my eyes have seen the horror
Of the coming of the flood
I've driven deep the thorny crown
Into the soul of someone's son
Still I'll look you in the eye
'Cause I've believed in things I've thought
And I'll die without regret
For the wars I have fought

Gonna take a miracle to save you this time
And your savior has just left town
Gonna need a miracle
'Cause your heart's doing time
And your conscience is calling you out
It ain't all for nothing
Life ain't written in the sand
I know the tide is coming
But it's time we made a stand
With a miracle

Betty came by on her way
Said she had a word to say
About things today
And fallen leaves.

Said she hadn't heard the news
Hadn't had the time to choose
A way to lose
But she believes.

Going to see the river man
Going to tell him all I can
About the plan
For lilac time.

If he tells me all he knows
About the way his river flows
And all night shows
In summertime.

Betty said she prayed today
For the sky to blow away
Or maybe stay
She wasn't sure.

For when she thought of summer rain
Calling for her mind again
She lost the pain
And stayed for more.

Going to see the river man
Going to tell him all I can
About the ban
On feeling free.

If he tells me all he knows
About the way his river flows
I don't suppose
It's meant for me.

Oh, how they come and go
Oh, how they come and go.

Coolio - Gangsta's Paradise

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I take a look at my life
And realize there's nothing left
'Cause I've been blasting and laughing so long
That even my momma thinks that my mind has gone.

But I ain't never crossed a man that didn't deserve it.
Me be treated like a punk, you know that's unheard of.
You betta watch how ya talking
And where ya walking
Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk.

I really hate to trip but I gotta loc,
As they croak, I see myself in the pistol smoke.
Fool, I'm the kinda g that little homies wanna be like,
On my knees in the night
Saying prayers in the street light.

We've been spending most our lives
Living in a gangsta's paradise.
We've been spending most our lives
Living in a gangsta's paradise.
We keep spending most our lives
Living in a gangsta's paradise.
We keep spending most our lives
Living in a gangsta's paradise.

Look at the situation, they got me facing,
I can't live a normal life, I was raised by the street.
So I gotta be down with the 'hood team,
Too much television watching, got me chasing dreams.
I'm an educated fool with money on my mind
Got my ten in my hand and a gleam in my eye.
I'm a loc'ed out gangsta, set tripping banger
And my homies are down so don't arouse my anger.
Fool, death ain't nothing but a heart beat away,
I'm living life do or die, what can I say?
I'm twenty-three now, will I ever live to see twenty-four,
The way things is going I don't know.

Tell me why are we
So blind to see.
That the ones we hurt
Are you and me?
We've been spending most our lives
Living in a gangsta's paradise.
We've been spending most our lives
Living in a gangsta's paradise.
We keep spending most our lives
Living in a gangsta's paradise.
We keep spending most our lives
Living in a gangsta's paradise.
