Time, is going by, so much faster than I,
And I'm starting to regret not spending all of it with you.
Now I'm, wondering why, I've kept this bottled inside,
So I'm starting to regret not telling all of this to you.
So if I haven't yet, I've gotta let you know...
the story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness
so long to the regret
and now I see the world through diamond eyes
Every night of my life
I watch angels fall from the sky
Every time that the sun still sets
I pray they don't take mine
like my dreams are a tent and I'm turning inside out
the pattern made of happier times becomes plain and boring...again
just like paper rots and then turns yellow
all my words freeze up inside this machine.
knock knock knock
embracing a silent space...
something, I'm giving up on you
I'll be the one, if you want me to
Anywhere I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you
And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all
And I will stumble and fall
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to...
blood is cold
Ticking clocks, sun-gold
I can hear them turning round as I lay here on the ground
Racing heart, poison woods
Shattered dreams, nowhere to turn
I can feel the water fall from my eyes and down the walls
I don’t know if anyone can hear me…
I’ve been looking...
and tired, I stand alone
Could you be there? 'Cause I'm the one who waits for you
Or are you Unforgiven, too?"
"Unforgiven II" by Metallica
While the first "Unforgiven" seems to be more about a man lamenting the fact that he was constantly pressured by society and the people...
I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone
I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
The promise that shouldn’t have been made
Will try to steal our future today, too
Even if I gain the things I wanted
I wonder why I can’t be good at laughing honestly
The overflowing tears aren’t of weakness or regret
They’re pieces that pain produced
No matter in what...
strangersIf I knew whywe wouldn't be in this dangerleaning out the window of my carand wishing on another lucky starLife is longit is not made to measureYou will go onthe same in pain and pleasureWondering how we ever got this farby wishing on another lucky starLife goes onas...
I stare at my reflection in the mirror:
"Why am I doing this to myself?"
Losing my mind on a tiny error,
I nearly left the real me on the shelf.
No, no, no, no, no...
Don't lose who you are in the blur of the stars!
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be...
I say bye to you and wave
Kicking shadows on the street
For every mistake that I had made
And like a baby boy,
I never was a man
Until I saw your blue eyes crying,
And I held your face in my hand
And then I fell down yelling,
"make it go away!"
Just make a smile come back...
I been, I been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I been, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars
Yeah, we'll be counting stars
I see this life
Like a swinging vine
Swing my heart across the line
This song came out just after my grandfather died and everything is so much like his last 2 weeks .I never left him and he was so bad he tried too talk but couldn't ..when he died a big piece of me went with him.
For you Grandad...we never really left each other did we
can't believe I made it this far/ On my way with a smile on my face/ See the top and I'm not falling off/And all I need is a microphone, I'll sing/ About the things that have been hurting me/ It's safe to say, all the kids, I relate/ To their lives so just keep holding on....
I've got some real estate here in my bag
So we bought a pack of cigarettes and Mrs. Wagner's pies
And we walked off to look for America
"Kathy," I said as we boarded a Greyhound in Pittsburgh
Michigan seems like a dream to me now
It took me four days to hitchhike from...
And we stitched it up the best two children could,
But we were ruled by indecision.
And we pushed and pulled more than two people should.
When you want me here I am here.
When you change your mind again and want me near,
When it's all settled and all is clear...
I have nothing left to give
I have found the perfect end
You were made to make it hurt
Disappear into the dirt
Carry me to heaven's arms
Light the way and let me go
Take the time to take my breath
I will end where I began
And I will find the enemy within
Cause I can feel it...
I was at Atlanta Fest this past year with my church and I had an amazing experience with this song. Imagine a hyped up crowd getting into the moment seeing one of their favorite artists on stage. Then all of a sudden he tells the crowd that he's not up there for their adoration...
Those who were right there
Got a new kind of fear
You'd fight and you were right
But they were just too strong
They'd stick it in your face
And let you smell what they consider wrong
That's why I say hey man, nice shot
What a good shot man
Silver Bullet Band
Think in terms of bridges burned,
Think of seasons that must end.
See the rivers rise and fall;
They will rise and fall again.
Everything must have an end
Like an ocean to a shore,
Like a river to a stream;
Like a river to a stream,
It's the famous final...
I love love love this song. It's gotten me through so much. Sometimes I just sit and listen to it on replay, over and over and over again. I have the lyrics memorized, and I sing along and harmonize with them. I really really love this song. It's beautiful. I imagine laying next...
Sometimes, I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear
And I can't help but ask myself how much I'll let the fear
Take the wheel and steer
It's driven me before
And it seems to have a vague, haunting mass appeal
But lately I am beginning to find that I
Should be the one...
all sexy but it's causing me shame
I wanna lean on your shoulder
I wish I was in love but I don't wanna cause any pain
And if I'm feeling like I'm even, we've got nothing to gain
What if I never even see you 'cause we're both on a stage
Don't tell me listen to your song because...
all swallowed in their coats
With scarves of red tied 'round their throats
To keep their little heads from falling in the snow,
and I turned 'round and there you go
And Michael, you would fall
and turn the white snow red
as strawberries in the summertime...
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 wanna go home right now
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
When sooner or later it's over
I just don...
Turn down the lights, turn down the bed
Turn down these voices inside my head
Lay down with me, tell me no lies
Just hold me close, don't patronize - don't patronize me
Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't
She'd a bruise so black they watched it fade through the full spectrum of colors.
They kept it like a pet; a private joke they told no others.
And how the tissue repaired, and how it turned to yellow
And she found it disgusting, 'cause it didn't match her clothing.
He said "that...
I can't go outside
I'm scared I might not make it home
I'm alive but I'm sinking in
If there's anyone at home at your place
Why don't you invite me in
Don't try to bleed me
I've been there before and I deserve a little more
I belong in the service of the Queen
I belong anywhere...
True story, he was in the middle of divorcing his wife. He was on stage when these lyrics came to him. He ask his band to start playing slow. The words just came to him. Afterward he broke down and cried on stage. That's real music ..........
lies in the books
To make a citizen out of you
Because they sleep with a gun
And keep an eye on you, son
So they can watch all the things you do
Because the drugs never work
They're gonna give you a smirk
'Cause they got methods of keeping you clean
They're gonna rip up your...
I open my lungs dear
I sing this song at funerals... no rush.
These lyrics heard a thousand times, just plush.
A baby boy you've held so tightly,
This pain it visits almost nightly
Missing hotel beds, I feel your whole touch.
I will await dear, a patience of eternity, my crush...
"Do you care,
about all the little things,
or anything at all?"
"I wanna feel all the chemicals inside."
"Just to know I'm alive."
"Don't tell me if I'm dying,
cause I don't wanna know."
"If I can't see the sun,
then maybe I should go."
"Do you believe in the day that you...
I can stay awake for days
If that's what you want
Be your number one
I can fake a smile
I can force a laugh
I can dance and play the part
If that's what you ask
Give you all I am
I can do it
I can do it
I can do it
But I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down
Yep, I am rocking the house this morning people!
Tall, Dark Handsome Stranger lyrics
Performed by HEART
(H. Knight/A. Hammond)
I'm so tired of these men trying to impress me with nothing
The same old routine and the smooth fancy talking
Now I know and...
were kings and queens of bedlam
We were happy to exist,
In discomfort we’d created
Though we dreamed of more than this
We had embers in our bloodlines
Iron lungs beneath our skin
Though our hearts were barely beating
We were bleeding out within
We’re at a stalemate...
But I'll be following
You won't feel the shadows
But they'll be closing in
You won't see me coming
But I'll rip you at the seams
You won't touch the silence
But you can hear the screams
You won't taste the poison
Hidden in my kiss
You won't face the darkness
of the bottle is my only friend
I think I'll slit my wrists again and I'm
Gone, gone, gone, gone
My legs are dangling off the edge
A stomach full of pills didn't work again
I'll put a bullet in my head and I'm
Gone, gone, gone, gone
Gone too far yea I'm gone...
the same deep wounds as you,
My love can double as a weapon too
Say that you trust it and I’ll set it free,
Turn it back on me,
Turn it back on me
We trade our secrets when it’s safe,
Our ammunition when the fever breaks
Show me the side no one else sees,
Turn it back on me...
One of the best songs I have ever heard. Alice in Chains is true grunge, but the fact that they can make such a beautiful song and masterfully convey in a short amount of words the feeling of utter lonely desperation is truly amazing. I think many of us can relate.
