Would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
If I could
Just hold you
A Thousand Miles - Vanessa Carlton
First heard of this song was when i was younger in my dad's ipod. I really liked it without knowing the meaning of the...
I was trying to think of something wise and clever and insightful to say as an introduction to this song, but I've got nothing in the tank so to speak. What I will say is that this song is a pretty good description of me.
My life, like all of ours, is a series of stories. Some...
Gettin' away with murder, livin' a lucky life
All good things finally come to an end
Hit ya like a train if you try to beat it
Everybody knows that she broke your heart
Everybody knows that it's tearing you apart
The row you've been sailin' on sprung a leak
comfort, it helps me sleep tonight
Maybe it can stop tomorrow from stealing all my time
I am here still waiting though I still have my doubts
I am damaged at best, like you've already figured out
I'm falling apart, I'm barely breathing
With a broken heart that's still beating...
insideWho'll hourly come and a lonely goAnd who am I to know what I feelSympathy, that's tearing me apartAttraction of the distance through a heartAffinityWhat if love will leave, you're heart an open soreAnd I can't reveal, what even I don't knowThe love you feel, you waste...
guess I just lost my husband,
I don't know where he went,
So I'm gonna drink my money,
I'm not gonna pay his rent (nope),
I got a brand new attitude and
I'm gonna wear it tonight,
I wanna get in trouble,
I wanna start a fight,
Na na na na na na na I wanna start a fight,
I love "The Civil Wars".
They sort of personify my tastes in music, a quirky girl and rugged guy. Singer-song writers, independent, not at all "well-known", folksy, sorta country, very mellow.
They're very me.
I've had their album "Barton Hollow" for awhile but had been...
miscommunications happen between people, especially when emotions are involved? I think this song tells the story well. I know I can relate. Sometimes we misinterpret what the other is saying in a relationship. Missed signals and misunderstandings can take place when we filter...
and no one could save me but you.It's strange what desire will make foolish people do.I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you.And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you.No, I don't want to fall in love (This world is only gonna break your heart)No, I don't want...
above the waterMy feet can't touch the groundTouch the ground, and it feels likeI can see the sands on the horizonEverytime you are not around[Hook]I'm slowly drifting away (drifting away)Wave after wave, wave after waveI'm slowly drifting (drifting away)And it feels like I'm...
that are best at expressing certain feelings. Sometimes dreams are the only reality we can have. Some dreams can never be, but perhaps those are the ones that make our best realities. Perhaps those dreams are my reality...I can't seem to shake this song out of my head this...
that you would be the one to hold my heartBut you came around and you knocked me off the ground from the startYou put your arms around meAnd I believe that it's easier for you to let me goYou put your arms around me and I'm homeHow many times will you let me change my mind and...
"I Need Love"
When I'm alone in my room sometimes I stare at the wall
and in the back of my mind I hear my conscience call
Telling me I need a girl who's as sweet as a dove
for the first time in my life, I see I need love
There I was giggling about the...
I will remember you, will you remember me?Don't let your life pass you by,Weep not for the memoriesRemember the good times that we had?I let them slip away from us when things got bad.How clearly I first saw you smilin' in the sunWant to feel your warmth upon meI want to be the...
shelter from the rainYou're the pillsThat take away my painYou're the lightThat helps me find my wayYou're the wordsWhen I have nothing to sayAnd in this worldWhere nothing else is trueHere I amStill tangled up in youI'm still tangled up in youStill tangled up in youYou're the...
the floor where you left me
I think I took too much
I'm crying here, what have you done?
I thought it would be fun
I can't stay on your life support,
There's a shortage in the switch,
I can't stay on your morphine,
'Cause it's making me itch
I said I tried to call the nurse...
You know I'd fall apart without you
I don't know how you do what you do
'Cause everything that don't make sense about me
Makes sense when I'm with you
Like everything that's green, girl, I need you
But it's more than one and one makes two
Put aside the math and the logic of it...
Some say love, it is a riverThat drowns the tender reed.Some say love, it is a razorThat leaves your soul to bleed.Some say love, it is a hunger,An endless aching need.I say love, it is a flower,And you its only seed.It's the heart afraid of breakingThat never learns to...
I am at a 'not such a great' phase in my life with my wife who means the world to me and is my first and forever love .. somewhere down the road I have lost myself and have hurt her in the process and I can't think of a better way to tell her that she means the world to me and I...
don't work like they used to beforeAnd I can't sweep you off of your feetWill your mouth still remember the taste of my love?Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks?And, darling, I will be loving you 'til we're 70And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23And I'm...
I'm done. I'm sick of people thinking they can say whatever and do whatever they want to me and to the people i care about and i won't react to it. I am a flirt, I'm crazy and outgoing. I love to have fun and do the unexpected. I'm Alexandrya.. Read it, Learn it, And Know it...

Apologies to the Beatles, but I couldn't resist meddling with their lyrics to create this 21st century version of Ticket to Ride for the breakup of an online relationship. :D
Here's the video so you can listen to the music...
I saw was a hollow skydid I set my sights too highto find a path before meI dreamt of shooting starsI travelled out so fartried to signal where you arebut nothing could assure meinside, outside, any sidestill I'm looking for alibiscast aside close my eyes now I'm hereand the...
you've laid your hands upon me
And told me who you are
I thought I was mistaken
I thought I heard your words
How do I feel tell me now
How do I feel
How does it feel?
How should I feel?
Tell me how does it feel?
To treat me like you do
Those who came before me
I can imagine the moment
Breaking out through the silence
All the things that we both might say
And the heart it will not be denied
Till we're both on the same damn side
All the barriers blown away
why I keep going back to this song but I find myself looking for it every time I have felt low of late. I guess I will figure out eventually... so this is just a marker for me.
We are dead to rights born and raised
We are thick and thin 'til our last days
these broken lines
Hold me like a lover
We'll find a way, to run away, tonight
Tell me when it's over,
Promise that you'll always keep me in mind
Burning like a soldier,
I'll find my way to you and save the day
so you gave me your wings
And time held its breath so I could see, yeah
And you set me free
When I was alone
You came around
When I was down
You pulled me through
And there's nothing that
I wouldn't do for you
as I often am and I took a moment to watch the sun rising from behind snow covered mountains, turning the snow pink for a moment. I had my music on shuffle, when this song came on just as the sun turned brighter and the whole mountain was bathed in light. I noticed the lyrics...
I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
Till the landslide brought me down
Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle...
for meOn these hands and knees I'm crawlin'Oh, I reach for youWell I'm terrified of these four wallsThese iron bars can't hold my soul inAll I need is youCome please I'm callin'And all I scream for youHurry I'm fallin', I'm fallin'Show me what it's likeTo be the last one...
storm?So overwhelmed by the ocean's shapeless formWater's getting harder to treadWith these waves crashing over my headIf I could just see youEverything would be all rightIf I'd see youThis darkness would turn to lightAnd I will walk on waterAnd you will catch me if I fallAnd I...
Don’t walk away
See I just can’t find the right thing to say
I tried but all my pain gets in the way
Tell me what I have to do so you’ll stay
Should I get down on my knees and pray
And how can I stop losing you
How can I begin to say
When there’s nothing left...
You probably think you’re too good to take the trash out
Well, are you dumb or are you blind?
Cause it’s a real fine line
Between telling a joke and turning a knife
Don’t wreck my reputation
Let me wreck my own
Step off, step off
Yeah you’re getting too...
empty heartAs love is fading,From all the things that we areBut are not saying.Can we see beyond the starsAnd make it to the dawn?Change the colors of the sky.And open up toThe ways you made me feel alive,The ways I loved you.For all the things that never died,To make it through...
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
Here in the dark, in these final...
sinking insideAnd the masts and lines are broken down tonight.I swallow my prideBut we’re drowning in the ocean and it’s tearing my heart openBaby, we’re high then we’re low, first it’s yes then it’s no, and we’re changing like the...
I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone
These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much...
I have a few friends here (you know who you are) and they are really struggling the last little while, as we all do from time to time, this song is for them.
I really wish there is was something more real and tangible I could do to ease their pain and help them through these...
