That love was meant for beauty queens👩
And high school girls with clear skin smiles😄
Who married young and then retired.
The valentines I never knew💏
The Friday nights charades of youth
We're spent on on more beautiful...
For those of us who knew the pain...
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...
and alone on some forgotten highway, traveled by many, remembered by few.
Looking for something that I can believe in,
looking for something that I'd like to do with my life.
There's nothing behind me and nothing that ties me to
something that might have been true yesterday...
That's why I love Skrillex - First of the Year (Equinox)
"First Of The Year (Equinox)"

way back home
Into the light
Out of the night
Back the way it was before
Wont let me go with a good bye
It's never that easy I know
I need to fight
Fight for my life
Find my way back to my home
wrote these lyrics and love singing it so maybe it can help anyone else who feels...
Someone said they live together
Ran out the door together
She was holding hands with Trevor
Not the greatest feeling ever
Said pull yourself together
You should try your luck with Heather
And I hope they slept together
Oh the less I know the better
talks in maths
He buzzes like a fridge
He's like a detuned radio
Arrest this girl
Her Hitler hairdo
Is making me feel ill
And we have crashed her party
This is what you'll get
This is what you'll get
This is what you'll get
When you mess with us
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...
I've been, I've been losing sleepDreaming about that things we could beBut, baby, I've been, I've been praying hardSaid, no more counting dollarsWe'll be counting stars, yeah, we'll be counting starsI see this life like a swinging vineSwing my heart across the lineAnd my face is...
a stiff drink"
"Sipping from a high, full glass"
"Let the world fade away"
She said, "I don't smoke"
"But sometimes I need a long drag"
"Yeah, I know it might sound bad"
"But sometimes I need a smoke break"
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.

and listen to this song right now..OK, j/k. But it SO fits some situations. It's almost 20 years old - how did I manage to miss this song back in the 90s? (Well, I know how - it's sort of techno/dance music, and I'm not into that genre as a general rule.).I guess I discover some...
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...
Brian Byrne and the American Boy Choir)
A single note passes out of the ashes
A flickering ember begins
It’s the courage to turn when the pages have burned
And your story now seems at an end
Seasons stay and seasons go
Sending your memories adrift
It’s the beautiful longing...
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...
measure for wealth by the things you can hold
And you measure for love by the sweet things you're told
And you live in the past or a dream that you're in
And your selfishness is your cardinal sin
And you want to be held with highest regard
It delights you so much if he's trying...
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...
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...
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 ..........
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
almost Christmas time
And there I stood in another line
Trying to buy that last gift or two
Not really in the Christmas mood
And standing right in front of me was a
Little boy waiting anxiously
Pacing around like little boys do
And in his hands he held
A pair of shoes
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
playin Santa Claus downtown on Christmas Eve
When a little girl of three or four climbed up onto my knee
I could tell she had a Christmas Wish behind those eyes of blue
So I asked her what's your name, and what can Santa git for you
She said my name is Christmas Carol, I was...
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
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...
I will not take from you and you will not owe! I will protect you from the fiiiirrre below! Alone with this vision! Aloooone and Bliiiiinnd go tell the world..THAT IM STILL ALIIIIIIIVVVVVEEEEEE!"
Les Friction- Who will save you now.
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...
astrounats, champagne in plastics cups, waiting for the the big hero to show.
Outside the door he stands, his head in his hands, and his heart in his throat...
What can he tell them now, sorry I let you down, sorry it wasn't quite true.
But don't get hung up on it, just soldier...
