There I was again tonight forcing laughter, faking smiles
Same old tired, lonely place
Walls of insincerity
Shifting eyes and vacancy vanished when I saw your face
All I can say is it was enchanting to meet you
Your eyes whispered "have we met?"
Foo Fighters - Times Like These (Acoustic)
I am a one way motorway
I'm the one that drives away
Then follows you back home
I am a street light shining
I'm a wild light blinding bright
Burning off alone
It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give...
Dead is the new alive
Despair's the new survival
A pointless point of view
Give in, give in, give in, give in
You play the game
You never win
Dead is the new alive
Life's only living rival
A casket built for two
Give in, give in, give in, give in
You play the game...
I don't know what to say about this classic of lost love and seasonal sadness except that it's incredibly beautiful.
Listen for musical allusions to "Jingle Bells." Thanks to Amy007 for the inspiration this morning.
Always it's coming
And here starts the game
Why can't this puzzle be solved?
Each time it happens it's always the same
I look down and it starts to fall
And all I see
It burns my eyes
Burning all inside
Caught in the corners of my mind...
I really like this guy. I hadn’t heard of him until a few years ago. (He died in 1974 at age 26.)
He has a wonderful gentle voice and his music is beautiful and haunting. I think he’s really something special (and somewhat legendary, sadly having died at a young age...
older sisters when I was still in elementary school. Back then I thought I had a clue of what having a crush or even being in love. This song is called "I wish you love me". This will relate more to females, but you guys out there are welcomed to listen as well. I feel this...
away from you
A broken mess, just scattered pieces of who I am
I tried so hard
Thought I could do this on my own
I've lost so much along the way
Then I'll see your face
I know I'm finally yours
I find everything I thought I lost before
You call my name
I come to you in...
a friend of mine showed me this great band...They are awesome.
(Drink the cyanide!)
This is the hand that will blind your eyes and split your spine
This is the blade that'll visit your flesh and release the wine
You play with toys that have...
and at our worst
And when we speak, does it feel unrehearsed?
Cause where I wanna be is far apart
From where we are, from where we are
And I thought I found the place where we could start
Talk from the heart, talk from the heart
But you just say I'm perfect
Say I'm pretty
Just say yes. Romeo save me their trying to tell me how to feel. I got tired of waiting . Wondering if you were coming around . I said Romeo have been waiting . Marry me Juliet you don't have to be alone . I love you and you love me that's all I really know".
The above song is a tribute of sorts to the worst school murder in the United States, which today is somewhat forgotten.
On the 18th of May 1927, a man named Andrew Kehoe in the town of Bath, Michigan detonated bombs in his farm buildings and at the local school...
Lately I've been hard to reach
I've been too long on my own
Everyone has a private world
Where they can be alone
Are you calling me, are you trying to get through
Are you reaching out for me, and I'm reaching out for you
I'm just so fu-ckin' depressed
I just can...
Here I sit by my window looking through the window... dreary, cloudy day... cold with slight blowing snow from the north (of course)... wishing I am in Mexico or Cuba or Costa Rica... in my faerie bikini...
But we make the most of what we have...
and a really great friend that I look at as a role model to me "wierdWorks4me"
It's ok to go through hard times. it's not your fault! nothing is your fault!
This song reminds me of you and always will, I remember sharing it with you two summers ago and how you liked it...
that I used to listen to with my mom it's been 2 years and I was getting ready for bed I'M listening to Pandora and my song came on it's called Apologize by Justin timberlake it's a good song I love it
Joni Mitchell is such a wonderful poet, and this is my favorite song by her, a gorgeous ballad. Her words describe the motivation behind a lot of things that I’ve done in my own life: all I’ve ever wanted was just to come in from the cold!
(And the pictures in the...
Woke up and wished that I was deadWith an aching in my headI lay motionless in bedI thought of you and where you�d goneAnd let the world spin madly onEverything that I said I'd doLike make the world brand newAnd take the time for youI just got lost and slept right through the...
How old are you?
I'm older than you'll ever be
I've been dead a thousand years
And lived only two or three
I don't mind telling you
My life was ended by your hand
The kind of murder where nobody dies
But I don't suppose you'd understand
Call off the search...
Invoking the dark and the moon of the night
Summoning the beast, forgotten tales
The angels slained the shades of life
As they spread the wings of death
Screamings of fear destroyed my faith
Howling beasts, crimson tears
Ravens cries in the shadows of night...
thinking of my 14 y/o son and loving on him through his teen and young adult years, to mourning my own youth and crying? I absolutely love music. It completely transcends EVERYTHING, even when we least expect it.
and thought provoking songs I know is called "Deep Blue" by Arcade Fire. To prove how amazing this song is, I'll share the first verse with you: "Here, in my place and time, and here in my own skin, I can finally begin."
We are the pain
We are the shame
We've gone insane
Inside where no one's around
I am to blame, for everything
I like this game, that you all
make me play
I'm done being there for others
They have their pain and so do I
Don't need to feel it all over
I try to hold on...
knows I've been walking through absolute hell lately and things just keep getting darker and harder, like walking through knee deep mud ... I heard this on the radio in the car yesterday, wrote it down and re-listened to it right now. It gives me just a little bit of much-needed...
