Oh why can I not conquer love?
And I might have thought that we were one
Wanted to fight this war without weapons
And I wanted it, I wanted it bad
But there were so many red flags
Now another one bites the dust
Yeah, let's be clear, I'll trust no one
You did not break me...
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...
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.
so warm is your touch upon my skin, and how tired am I of being scared, but how awake am I now that I know you're here.
Cause I'd rather fight with you, than laugh with another, I'd rather freeze in your arms than be warm under covers...I'd rather feel your wrath than feel...
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 ..........
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...
really love a woman, to understand her
You gotta know her deep inside
Hear every thought , see every dream
An give her wings when she wants to fly
Then when you find yourself lyin helpless in her arms
You know you really love a woman
When you love a woman
You tell her, that she...
weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody's lack of love
Or you can start speaking up
Nothing's gonna hurt you the way that words do
And they settle 'neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would...
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...
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...
in upload society
I dreamed an ungranted dream
of meeting you
it’s an eternity that crosses just one second
I wanted to protect you
I embraced you with reaching fingers
that are still shaking
I believe all we can do
is keep on living
till we exhaust our...
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange a walk on part in...
Even if it leads nowhere,
Or would it be a waste?
Even If I knew my place should I leave it there?
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere
I'd build myself up,
And fly around in circles,
Waiting as my heart drops,
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
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 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...
around the world
To ease my troubled mind
I left my body lying somewhere
In the sands of time
But I watched the world float
To the dark side of the moon
I feel there is nothing I can do, yeah
I watched the world float
To the dark side of the moon
After all I knew it had to be...
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...
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...
Frank Sinatra. (Don't tell anybody or I'll lose my tough-chick credentials.)
These Foolish Things
A cigarette that bears a lipstick's traces
An airline ticket to romantic places
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things remind me of you
A tinkling piano in the next...
to it all
If not today nor yet tomorrow
Then some other day
I'll take seven lives for one
And then my only father's son
As sure as I did ever love him
I am not afraid
This world keeps spinning around me
The whole world keeps
spinning around me
All life is future to past...
Meant for someone else but not for me.
Oh, love was out to get me (duh-duh, duh-duh)
That's the way it seems (duh-duh, duh-duh)
Disappointment haunted all my dreams.
Then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer.
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind.
I'm in love (oh, ah)
And I'd give up forever to touch you cause I know that you feel me somehow Youre the closest to heaven that I'll ever be and I dont wanna go home right now And all I can taste is this moment and all I can breathe is your life and sooner or later its over I just...
As I was studying the back of my eyes
You were right there in my head
Pole-dancing at the end of my bed
I don't know what to do
I had a dirty dream about you
I couldn't see what the fuss was about when
My best friend started checking you out
But now I've seen...
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...
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
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
When I'm out here livin' on this ledge
And when I'm circlin' the drain
You keep my crazy sane
And quiet all the voices in my head
You're my compass when I'm lost
My anchor when I get tossed
And the right way when all I can do is wrong
Sometimes I drink 'til I fall down
The things that I don't know
When tomorrow comes
And though the road is long
I look up to the sky
In the dark I found, I stop and I won't fly
And I sing along, I sing along, then I sing along
I got all I need when I got you and I
And as it fell you rose to claim it
It was dark and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me
My hands, they're strong
But my knees were far too weak,
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet
But there's a side to you
That I never knew, never...
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
While you're far away and dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure
Don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep...
the way I planned, not my intention.
I got so brave, drink in hand, lost my discretion
It's not what I'm used to, just wanna try you on.
I'm curious for you, caught my attention.
I kissed a girl and I liked it,
the taste of her cherry chapstick.
I kissed a girl just...
