Song Lyrics


Recommended Posts

I'm almost certain that this will have been done before... but I can't find the thread for it if it has... badically post your favourite song lyrics/ the ones that mean that most to you.

 

Mine is Stairway to Heaven:

 

 

Theres a lady whos sure

All that glitters is gold

And shes buying a stairway to heaven.

When she gets there she knows

If the stores are all closed

With a word she can get what she came for.

Ooh, ooh, and shes buying a stairway to heaven.

 

Theres a sign on the wall

But she wants to be sure

cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.

In a tree by the brook

Theres a songbird who sings,

Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,

Ooh, it makes me wonder.

 

Theres a feeling I get

When I look to the west,

And my spirit is crying for leaving.

In my thoughts I have seen

Rings of smoke through the trees,

And the voices of those who standing looking.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,

Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

 

And its whispered that soon

If we all call the tune

Then the piper will lead us to reason.

And a new day will dawn

For those who stand long

And the forests will echo with laughter.

 

If theres a bustle in your hedgerow

Dont be alarmed now,

Its just a spring clean for the may queen.

Yes, there are two paths you can go by

But in the long run

Theres still time to change the road youre on.

And it makes me wonder.

 

Your head is humming and it wont go

In case you dont know,

The pipers calling you to join him,

Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow,

And did you know

Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

 

And as we wind on down the road

Our shadows taller than our soul.

There walks a lady we all know

Who shines white light and wants to show

How evrything still turns to gold.

And if you listen very hard

The tune will come to you at last.

When all are one and one is all

To be a rock and not to roll.

 

And shes buying a stairway to heaven.

I'm having nightmares, homicidal fantansies

I wake up stranglin, danglin my bed sheets

I call the nurse cause it hurts, to reminisce

How did it come to this? I wish they didn't miss

Somebody help me, tell me where to go from here

Cause even Thugs cry, but do the Lord care?

Try to remember, but it hurts

I'm walkin through the cemetary talkin to the, dirt

I'd rather die like a man, than live like a coward

There's a ghetto up in Heaven and it's ours, Black Power

is what we scream as we dream in a paranoid state

And our fate, is a lifetime of hate

Dear Mama, can you save me? And f**K peace

Cause the streets got our babies, we gotta eat

No more hesitation each and every black male's trapped

And they wonder why we suicidal runnin round strapped

I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserables. This is a song sung by a woman about a man, but it works as a song sung by a man about a man, too:

 

There was a time when men were kind,

And their voices were soft,

And their words inviting.

There was a time when love was blind,

And the world was a song,

And the song was exciting.

There was a time when it all went wrong...

 

I dreamed a dream in time gone by,

When hope was high and life, worth living.

I dreamed that love would never die,

I dreamed that God would be forgiving.

Then I was young and unafraid,

And dreams were made and used and wasted.

There was no ransom to be paid,

No song unsung, no wine, untasted.

 

But the tigers come at night,

With their voices soft as thunder,

As they tear your hope apart,

And they turn your dream to shame.

 

He slept a summer by my side,

He filled my days with endless wonder...

He took my childhood in his stride,

But he was gone when autumn came!

 

And still I dream he'll come to me,

That we will live the years together,

But there are dreams that cannot be,

And there are storms we cannot weather!

 

I had a dream my life would be

So different from this hell I'm living,

So different now from what it seemed...

Now life has killed the dream I dreamed...

 

Then there's an Andrew Lloyd Webber song, No Matter What, that Doug and I consider "our song" -- the first four lines of the lyrics are in my signature. We think these lyrics are perfect for a couple of guys who are in love with each other:

 

No matter what they tell us

No matter what they do

No matter what they teach us

What we believe is true

 

No matter what they call us

However they attack

No matter where they take us

We'll find our own way back

 

I can't deny what I believe

I can't be what I'm not

I know our love's forever

I know, no matter what

 

If only tears were laughter

If only night was day

If only prayers were answered

Then we would hear God say

 

No matter what they tell you

No matter what they do

No matter what they teach you

What we believe is true

 

And I will keep you safe and strong

And shelter from the storm

No matter where it's barren

A dream is being born

 

No matter who they follow

No matter where they lead

No matter how they judge us

I'll be everyone you need

 

No matter if the sun don't shine

Or if the skies are blue

No matter what the end is

My life began with you

 

I can't deny what I believe

I can't be what I'm not

I know this love's forever

That's all that matters now

No matter what

 

No matter what

No, no matter

That's all that matters to me

Funny how I find myself in love with you

If I could buy my reasoning I'd pay to lose

One half won't do

I've asked myself

How much do you commit yourself?

 

It's my life

Don't you forget

It's my life

It never ends

 

Funny how I blind myself

I never knew if I was sometimes played upon

Afraid to lose,

I'd tell myself what good you do

Convince myself

 

It's my life

Don't you forget

It's my life

It never ends

 

I've asked myself

How much do you commit yourself?

 

It's my life

Don't you forget

Caught in the crowd

It never ends

 

It's my life, the original by Talk Talk :)

Such a feelin's comin' over me

There is wonder in 'most ev'ry thing I see

Not a cloud in the sky, got the sun in my eyes

And I won't be surprised if it's a dream

 

Everything I want the world to be

Is now comin' true especially for me

And the reason is clear, it's because you are here

You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen

 

I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation

And the only explanation I can find

Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around

Your love's put me at the top of the world

 

Somethin' in the wind has learned my name

And it's tellin' me that things are not the same

In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze

There's a pleasin' sense of happiness for me

 

There is only one wish on my mind

When this day is through I hope that I will find

That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me

All I need will be mine if you are here

 

I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation

And the only explanation I can find

Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around

Your love's put me at the top of the world

 

I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation

And the only explanation I can find

Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around

Your love's put me at the top of the world

First ones popping to my mind:

Nostalgia, by the Buzzcocks

 

I always used to dream of the past

But like they say yesterday never comes

Sometimes there's a song in my brain

And I feel that my heart knows the refrain

I guess it's just the music that brings on nostalgia for an age yet to come

 

Ah nostalgia for an age yet to come

Nostalgia for an age yet to come

 

About the future I only can reminisce

For what I've had is what I'll never get

And although this may sound strange

My future and my past are presently disarranged

And I'm surfing on a wave of nostalgia for an age yet to come

 

I look I only see what I don't know

All that was strong invincible is slain

Takes more than sunshine to make everything fine

And I feel like I'm trapped in the middle of time

With this constant feeling of nostalgia for an age yet to come

 

Ah nostalgia for an age yet to come

 

About the future I only can reminisce

For what I've had is what I'll never get

And although this may sound strange

My future and my past are presently disarranged

And I'm surfing on a wave of nostalgia for an age yet to come

 

I look I only see what I don't know

All that was strong invincible is slain

Takes more than sunshine to make everything fine

And I feel like I'm caught in the middle of time

And this constant feeling of nostalgia for an age yet to come

 

Ah nostalgia for an age yet to come

Full of Grace is an amazing song! Great pick.

 

Sister Blister ~ Alanis Morissette

 

You and me we're cut from the same cloth

It seems to some we famously get along

But you and me are strangers to each other

Cuz you and me: competitive to the bone

Such tragedy to trample on each other with how much we've endured

With the state this land is in

You and me feel joined only by gender

We are not all for one and one for all

 

Sister blister we fight to please the brothers

We think their acceptance is how we win

They're happy we're climbing over each other

To beg the club of boys to let us in

 

You and me estranged from the mother

You and me have felt impotent in our skin

You and me have taken it out on each other

You and me disloyal to the feminine

Such a pity to disavow each other with how far we've come

With how strong we've been

You and me are on this pendulum together

You and me with scarcity still fueling

 

Sister blister we fight to please the brothers

We think their acceptance is how we win

They're happy we're climbing over each other

To beg the club of boys to let us in

 

We may not have priorities same

We may not even like each other

We may not be hugely anti-men

But such a cost to dishonor a sister

You and me have made it harder for the other

We forget how hard separatism has been

You and me we can help change their minds together

You and me in alignment until the end

 

Sister blister we fight to please the brothers

We think their acceptance is how we win

They're happy we're climbing over each other

To beg the club of boys to let us in

Not my favorite song in the world but I do love the lyrics:

 

Can you see

The honest questions in my heart this hour

I am opening like a flower

To the rain

And do you know the silent sorrows of a

Never ending journey through the pain

 

Do you see a brighter day for me

Another day

A day

Do you wonder whats in store for me

The cure for me

The way

Oh look down and see the tears I've cried

The lives I've lived

The deaths I've died

Would you die them too

And all for me

 

You say

I will pour the water down upon a thirsty barron land

And streams will flow

From the dust of your bruised and broken soul

And you will grow like the grass

Upon the fertile plains of Asia by the streams

Of living water you will grow

Oh.. you will grow

 

Do you know

The story from the start

And do you know me

Like you've always told me

Do you see the whispers in my heart against your kindness

My eternal blindness

Do you see...

 

Do you see a brighter day for me

Another day

A day

Do you wonder whats in store for me

The cure for me

The way

Oh look down and see the tears I've cried

The lives I've lived

The deaths I've died

Would you die them too

And all for me

 

You say

I will pour the water down upon a thirsty barron land

And streams will flow

From the dust of your bruised and broken soul

And you will grow like the grass

Upon the fertile plains of Asia by the streams

Of living water you will grow

Oh.. I will pour the water down upon the thirsty barron land

And streams will flow

From the dust of your bruised and broken soul

And you will grow like the grass

Upon the fertile plains of Asia by the streams

Of living water you will grow

Oh.. you will grow

Goo Goo Dolls ~ Iris

 

And I'd give up forever to touch you'

Cause I know that you feel me somehow

You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be

And I don't want to go home right now

 

And all I can taste is this moment

And all I can breathe is your life'

Cause sooner or later it's over

I just don't want to miss you tonight

 

And I don't want the world to see me

'Cause I don't think that they'd understand

When everything's made to be broken

I just want you to know who I am

 

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming

Or the moment of truth in your lies

When everything feels like the moviesY

eah you bleed just to know you're alive

 

And I don't want the world to see me

'Cause I don't think that they'd understand

When everything's made to be broken

I just want you to know who I am

 

And I don't want the world to see me

'Cause I don't think that they'd understand

When everything's made to be broken

I just want you to know who I am

 

And I don't want the world to see me

'Cause I don't think that they'd understand

When everything's made to be broken

I just want you to know who I am

 

I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am

Desperado by The Eagles -- It sums me up pretty well... and I can imagine it getting to be too late.

 

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?

You been out ridin' fences for so long now

Oh, you're a hard one

I know that you got your reasons

These things that are pleasin' you

Can hurt you somehow

 

Don' you draw the queen of diamonds, boy

She'll beat you if she's able

You know the queen of heats is always your best bet

 

Now it seems to me, some fine things

Have been laid upon your table

But you only want the ones that you can't get

 

Desperado, oh, you ain't gettin' no younger

Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home

And freedom, oh freedom well, that's just some people talkin'

Your prison is walking through this world all alone

 

Don't your feet get cold in the winter time?

The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine

It's hard to tell the night time from the day

You're loosin' all your highs and lows

Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away?

 

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?

Come down from your fences, open the gate

It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you

You better let somebody love you, before it's too late.

Cold As You - Taylor Swift

 

 

You have a way of coming easily to me.

And when you take, you take the very best of me.

So I start a fight 'cause I need to feel somethin'

And you do what you want 'cause I'm not what you wanted.

 

(CHORUS)

Oh, what a shame.

What a rainy ending given to a perfect day.

Just walk away, no use defending words that you will never say.

And now that I'm sittin' here thinkin' it through, I've never been anywhere cold as you.

 

You put up walls and paint them all a shade of gray.

And I stood there lovin' you and washed them all away.

And you come away with a great little story of a mess of a dreamer with the nerve to adore you.

 

(CHORUS)

Oh, what a shame.

What a rainy ending given to a perfect day.

So just walk away, no use defending words that you will never say.

And now that I'm sittin' here thinkin' it through, I've never been anywhere cold as you.

 

You never did give a damn thing, honey.

But I cried, cried for you.

And I know you wouldn't have told nobody if I died, died for you.

(Died for you)

 

Oh, what a shame.

What a rainy ending give to a perfect day. Every smile you fake is so condescending.

Counted all the scars you made.

Now that I'm sittin her thinkin' it through, I've never been anywhere cold as you

The Good That Won't Come Out

Rilo Kiley

 

 

Let's get together and talk about the modern age.

All of our friends were gathered there with their pets

just talking shit about how we're all so upset about the disappearing ground.

As we watch it melt....

 

It's all of the good that won't come out of us

and how eventually our hands will just turn to dust,

if we keep shaking them.

Standing here on this frozen lake.

 

I do this thing where I think I'm real sick

but I won't go to the doctor to find out about it

Cause they make you stay real still in a real small space

As they chart up your insides and put them on display.

They'd see all of it, all of me, all of it.

 

All the good that won't come out of me

and all the stupid lies I hide behind.

It's such a big mistake

lying here in your warm embrace.

 

Oh, you're almost home.

I've been waiting for you to come in.

Dancing around in your old suits going crazy in your room again.

I think I'll go out an embarrass myself by getting drunk and falling down in

the street.

You say I choose sadness

that it never once has chosen me.

Maybe you're right...

 

Let's talk about all of our friends who lost the war

And all of the novels that had yet to be written about them.

 

It's all the good that won't come out of them

and all the stupid lies they hide behind.

It's such a big mistake

Standing here on this frozen lake.

 

It's all of the good that won't come out of me

And how eventually my mouth will just turn to dust

If I don't tell you quick.

Standing here on this frozen lake.

So, this is mine and my best friends song. We always sing it to each other and with each other. It is kind of a sad... breaking up/letting go of a person song, but it is a frickin amazing song, and it will be our song FOREVER!

Water From The Moon 0:) by Celine Dion :blink:

 

I've looked everywhere I can

Just to find a clue

Oh to get to you

And make you want me

And I've run circles 'round the sun

Chasin' after you

Oh but it's no use

Can't you see that I'm going out of my mind

Trying to find a way to get through to you

Oh you don't know how hard I try

And I try and I try

What do I gotta do

 

Do I gotta get water from the moon

Is that what do I gotta do

To make you love me

Make you love me

Do I gotta turn the sand into the sea

Is that what you want from me

I've done everything that I can do

But get water from the moon

 

I've reached high up in the sky

Tryin' to steal the stars

Oh to win your heart

But even that's not enough

And I've searched every book I know

Just to find the words

Oh to touch your world and get some love out of you

I've already given all I can give

And I don't I don't know what's left to try

And I try and I try

What do I gotta do

 

Do I gotta get water from the moon...

 

Love me, how do I make you love me

How do I make you see that I'm goin'

out of my mind

(Solo)

 

I try, and I try, and I try...

(Chorus)

This is one of my favorite songs. It's an old song that comes from the first album by Supertramp.

 

Aubade

(And I Am Not Like Other Birds Of Prey)

 

Morning at last

Every night is a fight to your waking

Dreams dancing past

Through the silence of sleep, dawn is breaking

I wait and watch until them

 

And I am not like other birds of prey

And I am not like other birds of prey

 

And night is long

You are needing me

For undressed of song

I am there to see

That fear hold no sweat

 

Soft is my flight

And my eyes kill the lights that attack you

Life is my right

And in sleeps little death, I protect you

So hear less my presence dismay

 

That I am not like other birds of prey

That I am not like other birds of prey

 

When hopes are young

And your cares are few

Then I

Oh man oh man oh man... ummm.... let me think... oh goodness.... ~goes to my windows media player listy thingy~ It's so difficult to decide... my music all has specific meanings for me... there's all my emo and goth music, all my happy music... ummm... okay, I pick...

 

 

Mad World

 

Gary Jules, cover of Tears for Fears

 

 

All around me are familiar faces

Worn out places, worn out faces

Bright and early for their daily races

Going nowhere, going nowhere

Their tears are filling up their glasses

No expression, no expression

Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow

No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kind of funny

I find it kind of sad

The dreams in which I'm dying

Are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you

I find it hard to take

When people run in circles

It's a very, very

Mad World

Mad world

 

Children waiting for the day they feel good

Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday

And I feel the way that every child should

Sit and listen, sit and listen

Went to school and I was very nervous

No one knew me, no one knew me

Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson

Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kind of funny

I find it kind of sad

The dreams in which I'm dying

Are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you

I find it hard to take

When people run in circles

It's a very, very

Mad World

 

 

 

 

That's the one from the end of Donnie Darko and it just makes me feel... delightfully sane, like it's really the rest of the world that's totally nuts. :)
