PostSubject: Songs that hold meaning for different reasons.   Mon Aug 04, 2008 5:18 am

Good song that brings memories of a lifetime ago.

Black Label Society
"In this River" lyrics

I've been around this world, Yet I see no end.
All shall fade to black again and again.
This storm thatís broken me, my only friend.
Yeah

In this river all shall fade to black
In this river ain't no coming back
In this river all shall fade to black
Ain't no coming back

Withdraw a step away, just to find my self
The door is closed again, the only one left
This storm thatís broken me my only friend
Yeah

In this river all shall fade to black
In this river ain't no coming back
In this river all shall fade to black


In this river all shall fade to black
In this river ain't no coming back
In this river all shall fade to black

Ain't no coming back


In this river all shall fade to black
In this river ain't no coming back
In this river all shall fade to black

Ain't no coming back

In this river all shall fade to black
In this river ain't no coming back
In this river all shall fade to black

Ain't no coming back

PostSubject: "You Can Still Be Free" by Savage Garden   Mon Aug 04, 2008 7:33 am

This song helped me during a time in my life when it was so stormy I thought I'd never survive. Ain't it krazy how a song can turn krazy thoughts to strength and courage? Least I think so. "You Can Still Be Free" has THE MOST impact of any song I've ever listened to. One day I hope to create a graphic to match the vision I always see when I hear this song.


"You Can Still Be Free" lyrics

Cool breeze and autumn leaves
Slow motion daylight
A lone pair of watchful eyes
Oversee the living
Feel the presence all around
A tortured soul
A wound unhealing
No regrets or promises
The past is gone
But you can still be free
If time will set you free

Time now to spread your wings
To take to flight
The life endeavour
Aim for the burning sun
You're trapped inside
But you can still be free
If time will set you free
But it's a long long way to go

Keep moving way up high
You see the light
It shines forever
Sail through the crimson skies
The purest light
The light that sets you free
If time will set you free

Sail through the wind and rain tonight
You're free to fly tonight
And you can still be free
If time will set you free
And going higher than the mountain tops
And go high like the wind don't stop
And go high
Whohooohoooohoaaah
Free to fly tonight
Free to fly tonight
Free to fly tonight
Free to fly tonight

PostSubject: "Affirmation" by Savage Garden   Mon Aug 04, 2008 7:36 am

These are actually things I believe in.

"Affirmation" lyrics

I believe the sun should never set upon an argument
I believe we place our happiness in other people's hands
I believe that junk food tastes so good because it's bad for you
I believe your parents did the best job they knew how to do
I believe that beauty magazines promote low self esteem
I believe I'm loved when I'm completely by myself alone

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe you can't control or choose your sexuality
I believe that trust is more important than monogamy
I believe that your most attractive features are your heart and soul
I believe that family is worth more than money or gold
I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair
I believe the only ones who disagree are millionaires

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe forgiveness is the key to your unhappiness
I believe that wedded bliss negates the need to be undressed
I believe that God does not endorse TV evangelists
I believe in love surviving death in to eternity

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye
Until you say goodbye
Oh no no no noooo

PostSubject: "The Times They Are A-Changin'" by Blackmore's Night   Mon Aug 04, 2008 7:48 am

Changes are coming my way fast and hard. Tis a rather appropriate song in my opinion. August 19, 2008, thats when my big changes are really gonna happen.

"The Times They Are A-Changin'" lyrics


Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'.
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'.
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.
Oh the times they are a-changin
Yea the times they are a-changing
For the times they are a-changing

PostSubject: "Storm" by Blackmore's Night   Mon Aug 04, 2008 7:57 am

I just enjoy the tale it weaves. Blackmore's Night songs sooth me when I get pissed off or go into a black mind frame. Theres just something in the words/music/voice that tames my Wyld and Stormy emotions.

"Storm" lyrics

A timeless and forgotten place,
The moon and sun in endless chase
Each in quiet surrender
As the other reigns the skys

The midnight hour begins to laugh
A summer evening's epitaph
The winds are getting crazy
As the storm begins to rise
As the storm beings to rise

Wild were the winds that came
In the thunder and the rain
Nothing ever could contain
The rising of the storm

In the wings of ebony
Darkened waves fill the trees
Wild winds of warning
Echo through the air

Follow the storm now I've got to get out of here
Follow the storm as you take to the sky
Follow the storm now it's all so crystal clear
Follow the storm as the storm begins to rise

She seems to come from everywhere
Welcome to the dragons lair
Fingers running through your hair
She asks you out to play

In all of nature's sorcery
The most bewitching entity
Hell can have no fury
Like the rising of the storm

Follow the storm now I've got to get out of here
Follow the storm as you take to the sky
Follow the storm now it's all so crystal clear
Follow the storm as the storm begins to rise

Follow the storm now I've got to get out of here
Follow the storm as you take to the sky
Follow the storm now it's all so crystal clear
Follow the storm as the storm begins to rise
As the storm beings to rise

PostSubject: "Cartouche" by Blackmore's Night   Mon Aug 04, 2008 8:03 am

This song makes me wanna get up and dance with freedom and passion. Bellydance. It sends my mind to a place of relaxed fun. To peace.

"Cartouche" lyrics

If I share this with you never speak a word
They would never understand if they ever heard
Gemini, Capricorn, rising in the east
Dancing through the witch wood we began to sing

In between dark and light in the underworld
Wrapped around your finger like a string of pearls
Smiling face, empty hand, 7 golden rings
Dancing through the starlight we began to sing

Ahh, aahhh ahhhh still I hear the whisper Cartouche

Caramel colored leaves spiral in the air
Diving right into the ground 'round the winding stair
Stories carved out of wood, jester and the king
Dancing through the moonlight, we began to sing

Ahh, aahh ahhhh still I hear the whisper Cartouche

Memories, black and white, hide behind the glass
In the mirrors and the smoke, its all fading fast
Written word, turn the card winter into spring
Dancing through the witch wood we began to sing

Ahh, aahh ahhhh still I hear the whisper Cartouche

PostSubject: "Alive Again" by Cher   Mon Aug 04, 2008 8:14 am

I just discovered this song not too long ago. It blew me away! At first I wasn't sure why. After listening a few times I think I've figured it out. It gives me hope, strength, and confirms my desire to live again. For too long I was dead inside. It tells me I can let things go and move on. Grow. Become who I'm meant to be and to not let anyone, even myself stop me.

"Alive Again" lyrics

All alone
I must stand
Even when I'm running
And it feels, like a dream
I need to awaken from

I believe
When it hurts
We must keep on trying

But I want, And I need
Like a river needs the rain
There's a bridge I need to burn before I leave
I just wanna breathe again
Like a summer's day I need to feel the heat again

I only wanna keep the stone from rolling
I only wanna learn to feel the rain
Then maybe I could stop the leaves from falling
I only wanna learn to freeze the flame
I know I'll be alive again
I wanna be alive again

Here's the night, where's the stars
Cause I need some guiding
And it cuts, like a knife
As I watch you walk away
There's a bridge I need to burn before I leave
I just wanna live again
Like the stormy rain I need to hear it beat again

I only wanna keep the stone from rolling
I only wanna learn to feel the rain
Then maybe I could stop the leaves from falling
I only wanna learn to freeze the flame
I know I'll be alive again
I wanna be alive again
I wanna be alive again

Cause I did my best
Baby who'd have guessed
That I've failed the test

Cause when love ain't blessed
And it's laid to rest
It can leave a mess

I only wanna keep the stone from rolling
I only wanna learn to feel the rain
Then maybe I could stop the leaves from falling
I only wanna learn to freeze the flame
I know I'll be alive again
I wanna be alive again

PostSubject: "The Last Unicorn" by Loreena Mckennitt   Mon Aug 04, 2008 8:21 am

Ran across this song quite by accident but was blown away with it. It makes me think of Dreams. No matter how bleak things are getting, Dreams will survive. You just have to look for them. Believe and Listen. They will call to you in answer.

"The Last Unicorn" lyrics

When the last eagle flies
Over the last crumbling mountain
And the last lion roars
At the last dusty fountain

In the shadow of the forest
Though she may be old and worn
They will stare unbelieving at the last Unicorn

When the first breath of winter
Through the flowers is icing
And you look to the north
And a pale moon is rising

And it seems like all is dying and would leave the world to mourn
In the distance hear the laughter
Of the last Unicorn:

I'm alive, I'm alive

When the last moon is cast
Over the last star of morning
And the future has passed
Without even a last desperate warning

Then look into the sky where through
The clouds of path is formed
Look and see her how she sparkles
It's the last unicorn.

I'm alive, I'm alive
I'm alive, I'm alive
I'm alive, I'm alive

PostSubject: "A Thousand Words" by Savage Garden   Mon Aug 04, 2008 8:48 am

*Wickedly evil giggle* Something for some former mates of mine lol. All but 1 we did end on friendly terms but still there's reason they are ex's lol.

"A Thousand Words" lyrics

We stumble in a tangled web
Decaying friendships almost dead
And hide behind a mask of lies

We twist and turn and we avoid
All hope and salvage now devoid
I see the truth inside your eyes

So take all this noise to your brain
Send it back again
I'll bare the cost, shed my skin, call you up and then
I'll say the words out loud

You could resurrect a thousand words to deceive me
More and more
A thousand words will give the reasons why
I don't need you anymore

Time manipulates your heart
Preconceptions torn apart
Begin to doubt my state of mind

But I won't go down on what I said
I won't retract convictions read
I may perplex, but I'm not blind

So take all this noise to your brain
Send it back again
I'll bear the cost, shed my skin, call you up and then
I'll say the words out loud

You could resurrect a thousand words to deceive me
More and more
A thousand words will give the reasons why
I don't need you anymore

I'll say the words out loud
I'll say a thousand words or more
Manipulation. Fabrication
Conversation. Annihilation
I'll say a thousand words or more
Domination. Frustration.
Elevation. Procreation
I'll say a thousand words or more

You could resurrect a thousand words to deceive me
More and more
A thousand words will give the reasons
Why I don't need you anymore

You could resurrect a thousand words to deceive me
More and more
A thousand words will give the reasons why
I don't need you anymore

PostSubject: "One Last Breath" by Creed   Sun Aug 10, 2008 3:59 pm

"One Last Breath" lyrics

Please come now I think I'm falling
I'm holding to all I think is safe
It seems I found the road to nowhere
And I'm trying to escape
I yelled back when I heard thunder
But I'm down to one last breath
And with it let me say
Let me say

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
Maybe six feet
Ain't so far down

I'm looking down now that it's over
Reflecting on all of my mistakes
I thought I found the road to somewhere
Somewhere in His grace

I cried out heaven save me
But I'm down to one last breath
And with it let me say
Let me say

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
Maybe six feet
Ain't so far down

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
Maybe six feet
Ain't so far down
I'm so far down

Sad eyes follow me
But I still believe there's something left for me
So please come stay with me
Cause I still believe there's something left for you and me
For you and me
For you and me

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
Maybe six ain't so far down

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
Maybe six feet ain't so far down

Please come now I think I'm falling
I'm holding on to all I think is safe

PostSubject: "What If" by Creed   Sun Aug 10, 2008 5:26 pm

"What If" lyrics

I can't find the rhyme in all my reason
Lost sense of time and all seasons
Feel I've been beaten down
By the words of men who have no grounds
Can't sleep beneath the trees of wisdom
When your axe has cut the roots that feed them
Forked tongues in bitter mouths
Can drive a man to bleed from inside out

What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
What if eye for an eye?

I've seen the wicked fruit of your vine
Destroy the man who lacks a strong mind
Human pride sings a vengeful song
Inspired by the times you've been walked on
My stage is shared by many millions
Who lift their hands up high because they feel this
We are one We are strong
The more you hold us down the more we press on

What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
What if eye for an eye?

I know I can't hold my hate inside my mind
Cause what consumes your thoughts controls your life
So I'll just ask a question
A lonely, simple question
I'll just ask one question

What if
What if
What if
What if
What if I?

What if
What if
What if
What if
What if I?

What if
What if
What if
What if
What if I?

What if
What if
What if
What if
What if I?

What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
What if eye for an eye?
What if your words could be judged like a crime?

What if
What if
What if
What if
What if I?

What if
What if
What if
What if
What if I?

What if
What if
What if
What if
What if I?

What if
What if
What if
What if
What if I?

PostSubject: "Don't Stop Dancing" by Creed   Thu Aug 14, 2008 5:32 pm

Good song that suits me at this point and Outsiders is one of my all time favorite movies so I went with this video on purrpose (usually I don't pay attention to video's lol)

"Don't Stop Dancing" lyrics

At times life is wicked and I just canít see the light
A silver lining sometimes isnít enough
To make some wrongs seem right
Whatever life brings
Iíve been through everything
And now Iím on my knees

Oh but I know I must go on
Although I hurt I must be strong
Because inside I know that many feel this way

Children donít stop dancing
Believe you can fly
Away away

At times lifeís unfair and you know itís plain to see
Hey God I know Iím just a dot in this world
Have you forgot about me
Whatever life brings
Iíve been through everything
And now Iím on my knees

Oh But I know I must go on
Although I hurt I must be strong
Because inside I know that many feel this way

Children donít stop dancing
Believe you can fly
Away away

Am I hiding in the shadows
Forget the pain and forget the sorrows

Am I hiding in the shadows
Forget the pain and forget the sorrows

But I know I must go on
Although I hurt I must be strong
Because inside I know that many feel this way

Children donít stop dancing
Believe you can fly
Away away

Children donít stop dancing
Believe you can fly
Away away

Children donít stop dancing
Believe you can fly
Away away

Am I hiding in the shadows
Are we hiding in the shadows

PostSubject: "Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad" by Def Leppard   Fri Sep 12, 2008 3:53 am

I think everyone's related to this song at some point in their life. I know its suited me several times (other then change it to guy not girl haha). Great song in general and another of my favorites.


"Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad" lyrics

Here I am, I'm in the wrong bed again
It's a game I just can't win
There you are breathing soft on my skin, yeah
Still you won't let me in
So come on

Why save your kisses for a rainy day
Baby let the moment take your heart away

Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah
Have you ever wanted someone you just couldn't have
Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart
Have you ever needed someone so bad
And you're the girl I gotta have
I gotta have you baby, yeah

There you go, midnight promises again, yeah
But they're broken by the dawn
You wanna go further, faster everyday, baby
But in the morning you'll be gone
And I'm alone

Why save your kisses for a rainy day
Baby let the moment take your heart away

Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah
Have you ever wanted someone you just couldn't have
Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart
Have you ever needed someone so bad

Every dream I dream is like
Some kinda rash 'n' reckless scene
To give out such crazy love
You must be some kinda drug
And if my time don't ever come
For me you're still the one
Damned if I don't, damned if I do
I gotta get a fix on you

Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah
Have you ever wanted someone you just couldn't have
Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart
Have you ever needed someone so bad, so bad
Have you ever wanted someone, have you ever wanted someone, yeah
Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart
Have you ever needed someone so bad
And you're the girl I gotta have
I gotta have you baby, yeah

It's a game I just can't win, oh

Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah
Have you ever wanted someone
Have you ever wanted someone, you just couldn't have
Did you ever tried so hard, yeah
