Ok this is the idea for what I would like to do. Take whatever song or songs you feel best describes what you usually feel and post them. I shall go first.

Supertramp “The Logical Song”
When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,
A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
And all the birds in the trees, well theyd be singing so happily,
Joyfully, playfully watching me.
But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible,
Logical, responsible, practical.
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
Clinical, intellectual, cynical.

There are times when all the worlds asleep,
The questions run too deep
For such a simple man.
Wont you please, please tell me what we’ve learned
I know it sounds absurd
But please tell me who I am.

Now watch what you say or they’ll be calling you a radical,
Liberal, fanatical, criminal.
Wont you sign up your name, wed like to feel you’re
Acceptable, respectable, presentable, a vegetable!

At night, when all the worlds asleep,
The questions run so deep
For such a simple man.
Wont you please, please tell me what we’ve learned
I know it sounds absurd
But please tell me who I am.


Staind “The Outside”
And you can bring me to my knees...Again
All the times when I could beg you please....In vain
All the times when I felt insecure....For you
And I leave my burdens at the door

But I'm on the outside
I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
Cos inside you're ugly
You're ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

All the times that I felt like this won't end
Was from you
And I taste what I could never have
Its from you
All the times that I've tried
My intentions, full of pride
But I waste more time than anyone

But I'm on the outside
I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
Cos inside you're ugly
You're ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

All the times that I've cried
All this wasted, it's all inside
And I feel, all this pain
I stuffed it down, it's back again
And I lie, here in bed
All alone, I can't mend
But I feel, tomorrow will be okay

But I'm on the outside
And I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
Cos inside you're ugly
You're ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

My dedication to ATS, By the Corsairs:

Meeting in smokey places
Hiding in shadowy corners
Dancing where no one knows our faces
Sharing love stolen in the night
In smokey places

Oh oh how I cried
On your wedding day
Like, like my heart would break
How you regret your wedding day
Now paying for your bad mistake

Mmmmmm
Meeting in smokey places
Hiding in shadowy corners
Oh we are dancing where no one knows our faces
Sharing love stolen in the night
In smokey places

Some sunny day
She will set you free
Free to be my life
Some sunny day
Sweetheart,She'll
set you free
We'll be, we'll be satified

Meeting in smokey places
Hiding in shadowy corners
We just keep dancing where no one knows our faces
Sharing love stolen in the night
In smokey places

Sharing love stolen in the night
In smokey places

FADE
Sharing love stolen in the night
In smokey places

You certainly have my vote on Logical Song, I think Babaji had more impact on my life though. Supertramp had so many meaningful songs.


I think I'll go with this one for my personal theme song:

CROSBY, STILLS & NASH - Cathedral

Words & Music - Graham Nash
copyright 1977, Thin Ice Music, ASCAP.


Six o' clock
In the morning, I feel pretty good
So I dropped into the luxury of the Lords
Fighting dragons and crossing swords
With the people against the hordes
Who came to conquer.

Seven o'clock
In the morning, here it comes
I taste the warning and I am so amazed
I'm here today, seeing things so clear this way
In the car and on my way
To Stonehenge.

I'm flying in Winchester cathedral
Sunlight pouring through the break of day.
Stumbled through the door and into the chamber;
There's a lady setting flowers on a table covered lace
And a cleaner in the distance finds a cobweb on a face
And a feeling deep inside of me tells me
This can't be the place

I'm flying in Winchester cathedral.
All religion has to have its day
Expressions on the face of the Saviour
Made me say
I can't stay.

Open up the gates of the church and let me out of here!
Too many people have lied in the name of Christ
For anyone to heed the call.
So many people have died in the name of Christ
That I can't believe it all.

And now I'm standing on the grave of a soldier that died in 1799
And the day he died it was a birthday
And I noticed it was mine.
And my head didn't know just who I was
And I went spinning back in time.
And I am high upon the altar
High upon the altar, high.

I'm flying in Winchester cathedral,
It's hard enough to drink the wine.
The air inside just hangs in delusion,
But given time,
I'll be fine.



This came out when I was about 14-15, and I still remember playing the record for my 85 yr old granny. We talked about God and the Bible for hours that night, and we really got to know each other at a deeper level.

The words still mean the same to me after all these years and I always think back to that night when she became more of a friend than a relation. We drank Sherry, went to the movies and saw the original Star Wars that weekend, and she took me to church on Sunday to repent for the fun we had the days before.
RIP

sorry......Boston

Don't look back, a new day is breakin'
It's been too long since I felt this way
I don't mind where I get taken
The road is callin', today is the day

I can see it took so long to realize
I'm much too strong not to compromise
Now I see what I am is holding me down
I'll turn it around

Chorus:
I finally see the dawn arrivin'
I see beyond the road I'm drivin'
Far away and left behind

It's a new horizon and I'm awakin' now
Oh I see myself in a brand new way
The sun is shinin', the clouds are breakin'
'Cause I can't lose now, there's no game to play

I can tell there's no more time left to criticize
I've seen what I could not recognize
Everything in my life was leading me on
But I can be strong

chorus

Good thread

I have alot of "theme" songs for different chapters of my life.

One of my favs is :

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For by U2

I have climbed highest mountain
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you

I have run
I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like fire
This burning desire

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
Well yes I'm still running

You broke the bonds and you
Loosed the chains
Carried the cross
Of my shame
Of my shame
You know I believed it

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for...

It's the theme from the Walgreens Commercials.
Welcome to "Perfect"


I'll soon be carrying around an I-pod, with small external speakers.
Just so I can have this playing at all times, in all places..

Moi?

Pink Floyd - Fearless

~~~~

You say the hills too steep to climb
Climbing.
You say youd like to see me try
Climbing.

You pick the place and Ill choose the time
And Ill climb
The hill in my own way.
Just wait a while for the right day.
And as I rise above the tree-line and the clouds
I look down, hearing the sound of the things youve said today.

Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd
Smiling.
Merciless the magistrate turns round
Frowning.

And whos the fool who wears the crown?
No doubt,
In your own way
And every day is the right day
And as you rise above the fear-lines in his brow
You look down, hear the sound of the faces in the crowd.

~~~~~

Pearl Jam - Man of the Hour - From Big Fish

~~~

Tidal waves don’t beg forgiveness
'CRASHED' and on their way
Father he enjoyed collisions; others walked away
A snowflake falls in may.
And the doors are open now as the bells are ringing out
Cause the man of the hour is taking his final bow
Goodbye for now.

Nature has its own religion; gospel from the land
Father ruled by long division, young men they pretend
Old men comprehend.

And the 'SKY BREAKS' at dawn; shedding light upon this town
They’ll all come ‘round
Cause the man of the hour is taking his final bow
Goodbye for now.

And the road
The old man paved
The broken seams along the way
The rusted signs, left just for me
He was guiding me, love, his own way
Now the man of the hour is taking his final bow
As the curtain comes down
I feel that this is just goodbye for now.

~~~~~

John Mayer - Waiting On The World To Change lyrics

me and all my friends
we're all misunderstood
they say we stand for nothing and
there's no way we ever could
now we see everything that's going wrong
with the world and those who lead it
we just feel like we don't have the means
to rise above and beat it

so we keep waiting
(waiting)
waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting
(waiting)
waiting on the world to change

it's hard to beat the system
when we're standing at a distance
so we keep waiting
(waiting)
waiting on the world to change
now if we had the power
to bring our neighbors home from war
they would have never missed a Christmas
no more ribbons on their door
and when you trust your television

what you get is what you got
cause when they own the information, oh
they can bend it all they want

"Rock Of Ages"

Gunter glieben glauchen globen
All right
I got something to say
Yeah, it's better to burn out
Yeah, than fade away
All right
Ow Gonna start a fire
C'mon!
Rise up! gather round
Rock this place to the ground
Burn it up let's go for broke
Watch the night go up in smoke

Rock on! Rock on!

Drive me crazier, no serenade
No fire brigade, just Pyromania

What do you want? What do you want?
I want rock'n'roll, yes I do
Long live rock'n'roll

Oh let's go, let's strike a light
We're gonna blow like dynamite
I don't care if it takes all night
Gonna set this town alight

What do you want? What do you want?
I want rock'n'roll, Allright!
Long live rock'n'roll

Rock of ages, rock of ages
Still rollin', keep a-rollin'
Rock of ages, rock of ages
Still rollin', rock'n'rollin'

We got the power, got the glory
Just say you need it and if you need it
Say yeah!

Heh heh heh heh
Now listen to me
I'm Burnin', Burnin', I got the fever
I know for sure, there ain't no cure
So feel it, don't fight it, go with the flow
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme one more for the road

What do you want? What do you want?
I want rock'n'roll, You betcha
Long live rock'n'roll

[Repeat Chorus]

We're gonna burn this damn place down
Down to the ground

Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh



This song is my personal theme song because Def Leppard is my fav band of all time,and this best describes my philosophy of life.Especially my own at the moment.And probably forever.

Just so this thread doesn't become just a long string of lyrics, how about you post why the song means so much to you.

Tell us the story behind the words, how did the song make a difference in your life ?

No need to name names if it's personal.
But a little background on why the song means something to you would put it in perspective for the other readers of the thread.
You don't need to give all your secrets away.:shk:

Oh. I'm an open book. I have no problem sharing personal stuff. I look at it as a chance to help somehow others somehow by showing that we all have our burdens to carry.
I just refrain from it because it gets tiresome getting told your whining, people starting to want to have my life sucks pissing contests, etc. So I generally try to avoid that.

I'd got to say "Take me" by Regenerator

Take Me (us Version)


have you once stopped to wonder why all this suffering
what has each man or child done to deserve this thing
maybe the truth is nothing maybe we're all the same
for every crime committed we all must take the blame

there is a new day dawning when our hope fills the skies
legions of love surrender unto our children's eyes
take me because i am ready take me where i belong
take me into forever take me away from wrong

some think the grass is greener that's life for heaven's sake
truth is we share existence what difference does it make

Nice thread

I guess this connected with me for a long time.

Just dropped in (to see what condition my condition was in)

(mickey newbury)


(yeah, yeah, oh-yeah, what condition my condition was in)

I woke up this mornin with the sundown shinin in
I found my mind in a brown paper bag within
I tripped on a cloud and fell-a eight miles high
I tore my mind on a jagged sky
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

(yeah, yeah, oh-yeah, what condition my condition was in)

I pushed my soul in a deep dark hole and then I followed it in
I watched myself crawlin out as I was a-crawlin in
I got up so tight I couldnt unwind
I saw so much I broke my mind
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

(yeah, yeah, oh-yeah, what condition my condition was in)

Someone painted april fool in big black letters on a dead end sign
I had my foot on the gas as I left the road and blew out my mind
Eight miles outta memphis and I got no spare
Eight miles straight up downtown somewhere
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

I said I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in
Yeah yeah oh-yeah
