I would like to know, if you could pick one song to describe who you are... What would it be? Who wrote it? Do you have the lyrics and can you post them?

It might just be "Never Change" by Jay-Z. It doesnt epitomize me exactly, but the title pretty much sums it up.

I'll neva chnage, this is J everyday.

I'd go with Over the Hills and Far Away by Led Zeppelin

Don't much like the pocketful of gold line but the rest is great.Awesome song,loved the music even before I understood the lyrics,which is often the way.

Many times I've gazed along the open road.
Many times I've lied - Many times I've listened
Many times I've wondered how much there is to know.

Mellow is the man who knows what he's been missing
Many many men can't see the open road.

Many is a word that only leaves you guessing
Guessing 'bout a thing you really ought to know, ooh!
You really ought to know...
I really ought to know...

This song is basicaly a summary of me, I could provide a complete playlist of songs that really give a deaper look into my life, they represent key points in my life, if anyone would be interested in that.

The Fallen - Franz Ferdinand

Some say you're trouble boy
Just because you like to destroy
All the things that bring the idiots joy
Well, what's wrong with a little destruction?

And the Kunst won't talk to you
Cause you kissed St. Rollox adieu
Cause you robbed a supermarket or two
Well, who gives a damn about the profits of Tesco?

Did I see you in a limousine
Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
Turn the rich into wine
As you walk on the mean
Well the fallen are the virtuous among us
Walk among us
Never judge us
Yeah we're all---
Up now and get 'em, boy
Up now and get 'em, boy
Drink to the devil
and death to the doctors!

Did I see you in a limousine
Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
Five thousand users fed today
Oh as you feed us
Won't you lead us
To be blessed

So we stole and drank champagne
On the seventh seal you said you never feel pain
"I never feel pain, won't you hit me again?"
"I need a bit of black and blue to be a rotation"

In my blood I felt bubbles burst
There was a flash of fist, an eyebrow burst
You've a lazy laugh and a red white shirt
I fall to the floor fainting at the sight of blood

Did I see you in a limousine
Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
You turn the rich into wine
Walk on the mean
Be they Magdalen at Virgin you've already been
You've already been and we've already seen
That the fallen are the virtuous among us
Walk among us
Never judge us
To be blessed

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la...

So I'm sorry if I ever resisted
I never had a doubt you ever existed
I only have a problem when people insist on
Taking their hate and placing it on your name

So they say you're troubled boy
Just because you like to destroy
You are the word, the word is 'destroy'
I break this bottle, think of you fondly

Did I see you in a limousine
Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
To the whore in a hostel
Or the scum of a scheme
Turn the rich into wine
Walk on the mean
It's not a jag in the arm
It's a nail in the beam
On this barren Earth
You scatter your seed
Be they Magdelan or Virgin
You've already been
and you've already seen...

wahoo! wahoo! wahoo!

Yeah! You've already been,
you've already seen
That the fallen are the virtuous among us
Walk among us
Oh if you judge us
We're all damned.

more about how I feel/look at the world

'who needs the peace corps' by frank zappa from the album 'we're only in it for the money'

What's there to live for?
Who needs the peace corps?
Think I'll just DROP OUT
I'll go to Frisco
Buy a wig & sleep
On Owsley's floor

Walked past the wig store
Danced at the Fillmore
I'm completely stoned
I'm hippy & I'm trippy
I'm a gypsy on my own
I'll stay a week & get the crabs &
Take a bus back home
I'm really just a phony
But forgive me
'Cause I'm stoned

Every town must have a place
Where phony hippies meet
Psychedelic dungeons
Popping up on every street
GO TO SAN FRANCISCO . . .

How I love ya, How I love ya
How I love ya, How I love ya Frisco!
How I love ya, How I love ya
How I love ya, How I love ya
Oh, my hair is getting good in the back!

Every town must have a place
Where phony hippies meet
Psychedelic dungeons
Popping up on every street
GO TO SAN FRANCISCO . . .

Hotcha!

First I'll buy some beads
And then perhaps a leather band
To go around my head
Some feathers and bells
And a book of Indian lore
I will ask the Chamber Of Commerce
How to get to Haight Street
And smoke an awful lot of dope
I will wander around barefoot
I will have a psychedelic gleam in my eye at all times
I will love everyone
I will love the police as they kick the # out of me on the street
I will sleep . . .
I will, I will go to a house
That's, that's what I will do
I will go to a house
Where there's a rock & roll band
'Cause the groups all live together
And I will join a rock & roll band
I will be their road manager
And I will stay there with them
And I will get the crabs
But I won't care
Because . . .

I feel I have two, both on the same album, by Guster. The title of the album is Lost and Gone Forever.

Two Point For Honesty

If that's all that you will be
Then you'll be a waste of time
You've dreamed a thousand dreams
None seem to stick in your mind

Two points for honesty
It must make you sad to know that
Nobody cares at all

I want to be where I've never been before
I want to be there and then I'd understand
Know I'm right and do it right
Could I get to be like that
How to know what I don't know
Nothing more to gain

Will I get better or stay the same?
I find I always move too slowly
Can't lift a finger
Can't change my mind
I never knew till someone told me that

If that's all that you will be
Then you'll be a waste of time
You've dreamed a thousand dreams
None seem to stick in your mind

Two points for honesty
It must make you sad to know that
Nobody cares at all

And all the people who've seen it all before
And all the people who already understand
Know they're right
and done it right
Could I get to be like that?
I don't know and I don't know
It's harder everyday

Can't lift a finger
Can't hurt a fly
I find I always move too slowly
One thing's for certain
I'm insecure
I never knew till someone told me that

If that's all that you will be
Then you'll be a waste of time
You've dreamed a thousand dreams
None seem to stick in your mind

Two points for honesty
It must make you sad to know that
Nobody cares at all
Nobody cares at all
They never cared at all

And

Center Of Attention

One of us
Won't last the night
Between you and me it's no surprise.
And there's two of us
Both can't be right
Neither will move till it's over.

I'm the center of attention
In the walls inside my head.
And no one will ever know it
If I keep my mouth shut tight.

My own little world
Is what I deserve
Cause I am the only child there is.
A king of it all
The belle of the ball
I promise I've always been like this.
Forever the first
My bubble can't burst
It's almost like only I exist.
Where everything's mine
If I can keep my mouth shut tight, tight, tight.

All by myself
I'm so much better on my own.
And way out there - oh oh oh
It is the same old place that it always has been.

I'm the center of attention
In the walls inside my head.
And no one will ever know it
If I keep my mouth shut tight, tight, tight.

My own little world
Is what I deserve
Cause I am the only child there is.
A king of it all
The belle of the ball
I promise I've always been like this.
Forever the first
My bubble can't burst
It's almost like only I exist.
Where everything's mine
If I can keep my mouth shut tight, tight, tight.

One of us
Won't last the night
Between you and me it's no surprise.
And there's two of us
Both can't be right
Neither will move till it's over.

I'm the center of attention
In the walls inside my head
And no one will ever know it
If I keep my mouth shut tight.

Yeah no one will ever notice
If I keep my mouth shut tight, tight, tight

My own little world
Is what I deserve
Cause I am the only child there is.
A king of it all
The belle of the ball
I promise I've always been like this.
Forever the first
My bubble can't burst
It's almost like only I exist.
Where everything's mine
If I can keep my mouth shut tight tight, tight.

JessicaS this one really stumped me(amazingly.)I relate to music in all areas of my life and I always have.Over the years my style has changed a bit as has my life.As new bands emerged on the scene I would listen more to them than the older stuff.I do not think I could ever pick just one song to sum up my entire life, however I have picked two songs that I can relate very well to now, at this time in my life.#1 Savage Garden Moon & Back.

Shes taking her time making up
The reasons
To justify all the hurt inside
Guess she knows from the smile
And the look in their eyes
Everyones got a theory about the
Bitter one
Theyre saying mamma never loved
Her much
And daddy never keeps in touch
Thats why she shies away from
Human affection
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now shes waiting for the right
Kind of pilot to come
And shell say to him
Shes saying

Chorus

I would fly to the moon and back if
Youll be
If youll be my baby
Got a ticket for a world where we
Belong
So would you be my baby

She cant remember a time when she
Felt needed
If love was red then she was colour
Blind
All her friends theyve been tried for
Treason
And crimes that were never defined
Shes saying love is like a barren
Place
And reaching out for human faith is
Is like a journey I just dont have a
Map for
So babys gonna take a dive and
Push the shift to overdrive
Send a signal that shes hanging
All her hopes on the stars
What a pleasant dream
Just saying

Chorus

Hold on hold on

Mamma never loved her much
And daddy never keeps in touch
Thats why she shies away from
Human affection
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now shes waiting for the right
Kind of pilot to come
And shell say to him
Just saying


And this one, my newest.



GOO GOO DOLLS LYRICS

"Before It's Too Late"

I wander through fiction to look for the truth
Buried beneath all the lies
and I stood at a distance
To feel who you are
Hiding myself in your eyes

and hold on before it's too late
Until we leave this behind
Don't fall just be who you are
It's all that we need in our lives

and the risk that might break you
Is the one that would save
A life you don't live is still lost
So stand on the edge with me
Hold back your fear and see
Nothing is real 'til it's gone

Hold on before its too late
Until we leave this behind
Don't fall just be who you are
It's all that we need in our lives

So live like you mean it
Love 'til you feel it
It's all that we need in our lives
So stand on the edge with me
Hold back your fear and see
Nothing is real 'til it's gone

Hold on before its too late
Until we leave this behind
Don't fall just be who you are
It's all that we need in our lives

Hold on before its too late
Until we leave this behind
Don't fall just be who you are
It's all that we need in our lives

It's all that we need in our lives
It's all that I need in my life.
