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...
is wearing me down
I swear I had it all figured out
When she's kissing me I'm missing your mouth
Reminiscing on the love I had found
Cause she's got your eyes but they don't quite shine
Like the way yours always do
You've been trapped inside of this one track mind
Cause I lost...

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...
stretched across my shame.
All the torment and the pain
Leaked through and covered me
I'd do anything to have her to myself
Just to have her for myself
Now I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do when she makes me sad.🎶🎶🎶🎼🎵😣😒
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...
Like I never wanted anything
I suppose I'll let this go and find a reason I'll hold on to
I'm so ashamed of defeat
And I'm out of reason to believe in me
I'm out of trying to get by
I'm so afraid of the gift you give me
I don't belong here and I'm not well
I'm so ashamed...
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.
Boy meets girl it's a delicate thing
So much time spent wondering if
What you see is what you get
I keep looking for a friend and a lover
When I find one he ain't the other
Sometimes, I just want to quit
One wants a maid one needs his mother
They either want space or...
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 see everything true
There's still a fire in me heart, my darling
But I'm not burning for you
We started it wrong
And I think you know
We waited too long
Now I have to go
I don't know why, I don't know why
We need to break so hard
I don't know why we break so hard
But if we...
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...
The Lord took her away from meShe's gone to heaven so I've got to be goodSo I can see my baby when I leave this worldWe were out on a date in my daddy's carWe hadn't driven very farThere in the road straight aheadA car was stalled, the engine was deadI couldn't stop, so I swerved...
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...
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...
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...
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...
To end all this infatuation with unity
I'm seeking my salvation alone again
I never needed to be one of you anyway
Don't wanna be another player losing in this game
I'm trying to impress upon you, we're not the same
My own individuality is so unique
I'm one impressive...
and my drink
I wish it was cooling me
But so far, has not been good
It?s been ******
And I feel awkward, as I should
This club has got to be
The most pretentious thing
Since I thought you and me
Well I am imagining
A dark lit place
Or your place or my place
Well I?m not...
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...
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 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
prayed to a God that I don't believe in
'Cause I got time while she got freedom
'Cause when a heart breaks, no it don't breakeven
Her best days will be some of my worst
She finally met a man that's gonna put her first
While I'm wide awake she's no trouble sleeping
'Cause when a...
one ever cared about
The way I ease my sufferin
Is killin me again
I would not prescribe this feeling for you
A pain with slow sustain
Like a sad song lives on
When the world wont take you back
You know everyone's the same
We're all a part in gods song
Can't live with this...
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 ..........
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...
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...
Something so magic about you
Don't you agree?
Babe, there's something lonesome about you
Something so wholesome about you
Get closer to me
No tired sighs, no rolling eyes, no irony
No 'who cares', no vacant stares, no time for me
Honey, you're familiar like my...
you now, I don't want to wake you
To tell you I feel something more
More then before, I'd be lost without you
In my eyes, there's just you and no other
In my heart, there's no doubt that you're mine
Suddenly I wonder if I told you
What I feel inside
If it doesn't show, baby...
trouble set me free
I have seen your face
And it's too much too much for me
Oh trouble can't you see
You're eating my heart away
And there's nothing much left of me
I've drunk your wine
You have made your world mine
So won't you be fair
So won't you be fair
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...
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
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...
