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...
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 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
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...
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...
and The news
The power of love is a curious thing
make a one man weep, make another man sing
Change a hawk to a little white dove
more than a feeling that's the power of love
Tougher than diamonds, rich like cream
Stronger and harder than a bad girl's dream
make a bad one good...
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...
You're turning heads when you walk through the door,
Don't need make-up,
To cover up,
Being the way that you are is enough,
Everyone else in the room can see it,
Everyone else but you,
Baby you light up my world like nobody else,
The way that you flip your hair gets me...
My final meal's over
They're gonna set me free
I can feel the fire's a burnin'
As the devil guards my door
I hit my knees in search of Jesus
On a cold jailhouse floor
Lord, now I'm singin':
"Get me out of here"
I see the preacher's eyes
As my daughter cries
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...
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...
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...
Love this (especially the rap part)!..by The Ark- The Light
I've wanted to live alone always,
everyday has been the solo story
I has been good in the deserted island
I even try to build walls
I thought it was a freedom that nobody cares me, Stupid me
I cared only...
won't be all alone tonight
And I'd be blessed by the light of your company,
Slowly lifting me to somewhere new
Oh can you tell, I haven't slept very well
Since the last time that we spoke, you said
"Please understand if I see you again don't even say hello."
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...
Are rolling like thunder now
As I look in your eyes
I hold on to your body
And feel each move you make
Your voice is warm and tender
A love that I could not forsake
'Cause I am your lady
And you are my man
Whenever you reach for me
I'll do all that I can
Lost is how I'm...
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...

In the jungle of the senses
Tinker Bell and Jack The Ripper
Love has no meaning not where they come from
But we know pleasure is not that simple
Very little, fruit is forbidden
Sometimes we wobble, sometimes we're strong
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...
We've learned to sugar coat the same black guards.
Well, I turn lead into gold
I'll cure original sin.
Oh, now that I've tasted blood,
Now this wine seems too thin.
~Blood and Wine: Dustin Kensrue~
Something deep inside me, I can't give up,
I think I'm gonna lose my mind,
I roll and I roll 'til I'm out of luck, yeah,
I roll and I roll 'til I'm out of luck,
I'm feeling something deep inside,
Hotter than a jet stream burning up,
I got a feeling deep inside,
It's taking, it...
She's got big brown eyes and tangled hair
Voguing in her underwear
And nothing is better
Than doing nothing together
Now she got a toothbrush as a microphone
Belting out the Rolling Stones
And I'm the last one to stop her
Can't believe that I got her
We get so close...
they don't smile they just crack
Waiting for our ship to come but our ships not coming back
We do our time like pennies in a jar
What are we saving for
There's a smell of stale fear that's reeking from our skins.
The drinking never stops because the drinks absolve our sins
So if I get a little crazy
Look a little spacey
Blowing kisses your way
Will you think I'm okay?
Set the sun on fire
Scream a little higher
Hold you in the moonlight
I say, "yeah"
If you say, "alright"
Light that smoke, yeah, one for giving up on me
And one just cause they'll kill you sooner than my expectations
To my favorite liar, to my favorite scar:
"I could have died with you"
I hope you choke on those words, that kiss, that bottle- confess
Now ask yourself yeah out...
Not so much of an investment
No one to tell me what to do
I like being by myself
Don't gotta entertain nobody else
No one to answer to
But sometimes, I just want somebody to hold
Someone to give me their jacket when it's cold
Got that young love even when we're old...
You get the feel of the night
And the music that plays in your ears
In your head you can hear
A voice so sweet and clear
And the music that plays in your head
As it flows up from the ground
Taking all who hear that sound
Close your eyes, it's about to begin
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...
worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life
-it is really a good song... gives me the chills.
I loved me some
Billy Joel, back in the day........Still do...........lol
Billy Joel - Honesty
If you search for tenderness, it isn't hard to find, you can have the love you...
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...
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...
