    As I Was Logging On This Evening...

    ... The Janis Ian classic "At Seventeen" sung by Jann Arden was playing on my iPod, and I realized just how well those lyrics fit my life. The lyrics could easily be about ugly duckling boys... but since they aren't, and enough people assume I'm gay already, The best I could...

    Close To The Edge -cameron Brown

    I’m standing close to the edge I witnessed all those things you said I’ve tried not to let them in But here I’m standing close to the edge How was I supposed to know Not to hate but to care A distant dream that I forgot Could have served me so well So so well Can’t you...

    "when Will I Ever Learn To Live In God" By Van Morrison

    I used to be a better Christian. Like Van, I still have a faith of sorts. I am dominated by the need to believe in something that (besides being undeniable because of all the life changing experiences I have witnessed) can help me connect with the eternal life force in a way...

    Guns N' Roses - Estranged

    I'll Follow The Sun

    One day you'll look to see I've gone. For tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun. Some day you'll know I was the one. But tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun. And now the time has come And so my love I must go. And though I lose a friend, In the end you will...

    Gloomy Sunday

      Warning: this song supposedly killed a lot of people. Listen to it at your own risk. However, I've listened to it a lot in my life, and I'm still alive. I think.

    This Song Has No Title

    I have always questioned everything. I want to know the reasons we do things, I need to see, to touch, to feel. I have always wanted to experience things, not just read about them or hear about them. I just need to know.   I have always loved the combined powers of...

    My song will be "Meant to live by switchfoot" because I feel that my life should have been different and better but circumstances and obstacles kind of got in the way, and I feel that I'm not living the life I'm supposed to live. I hope and pray that things will turn...

    Halcyon By Delphic

    The tone sounds very relatable to me. It sounds like crying out for an ideal and possibly something you miss. It reminds me of building castles in the sky. Having a vision while feeling the danger that it may just remain a vision. You know you can't make your vision a reality...

    Me Against The World By Simple Plan

    Every little sentence in this song can be related to some kind of moment in my life, some kind of emotion i've felt or some kind of feeling I've had. It's actually quite weird how much I can relate to the lyrics.
