I know there are a lot of songs out there with awesome lyrics. Which ones are your favorite? Think of your all time fave, fave right now, or ones that you just find really creative. I would really like a wide variety
new songs, older songs, and all different genres.
Make sure you put song title, artist, and the lyrics (doesnt have to be the whole song).

Here's just a few of mine... I have so many!
This entire song is amazing, but I posted the part that stands out most to me:
John Lennon, Imagine


Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

This song is a tribute to soldiers, the words are from a soldier's point of view:
Avenged Sevenfold, Gunslinger


I reach towards the sky
I've said my goodbyes
My heart's always with you now
I won't question why so many have died
My prayers have made it through yeah
Cause with all these things we do
It don't matter when I'm coming home to you

These lyrics are so insane that they make me laugh when I'm in a good mood, and also help me out when someone has really p'd me off (haha):
Brand New, Seventy Times Seven


So is that what you call a getaway?
Tell me what you got away with
Cause I've seen more spine on jellyfish
I've seen more guts on eleven-year-old kids
Have another drink and drive yourself home
I hope there's ice on all the roads
And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt
and again when your head goes through the windshield

This one reminds me of my first time....

AC/DC - Touch Too Much

It was one of those nights
When you turned out the lights
And everything comes into view
She was taking her time
I was losing my mind
There was nothing that she wouldn't do
It wasn't the first
It wasn't the last
She knew we was making love
I was so satisfied
Deep down inside
Like a hand in a velvet glove
CHORUS:
Seems like a touch, a touch too much
Seems like a touch, a touch too much
Too much for my body, too much for my brain
This damn woman's gonna drive me insane
She's got a touch, a touch too much
She had the face of an angel
Smiling with sin
The body of Venus with arms
Dealing with danger
Stroking my skin
Like a thunder and lightening storm
It wasn't the first
It wasn't the last
It wasn't that she didn't care
She wanted it hard
And wanted it fast
She liked it done medium rare
CHORUS
Seems like a touch, touch too much
You know it's much too much, much too much
I really want to feel you touch too much
Girl you know you're giving me much too much
Seems like a touch
Just a dirty little touch
I really need your touch
Cause you're much too much too much too much
Seems like a touch, a touch too much
Seems like a touch, a touch too much

God Bless My Ex-Wife For Making Me Feel So At Ease When I Was Supposed To Be So Nervous!

oooh...my turn!

Only One - Lifehouse



She walks around in circles in my head
waiting for a chance to take me
a Chance to break me
a chance to take me down
now i see this burden you gave me is too much to
Carry too much to bury inside
i guess you're the only one
that nobody changes
I guess you're the only
one left standing when everything else goes down
You're still the only one,
you're still the only one


Iris - Goo Goo Dolls



When Everything feels like the movies
Yeah, you'll bleed just to know you're alive


Maybe - Kelly Clarkson (actually I love all the lyrics to this song - but these are my favorite)



I don't want to be tough
And I don't want to be proud
I don't need to be fixed and I certainly don't need to be found
I'm not lost
I need to be loved
I just need to be loved


Swans - Unckle Bob



By my side, you'll never be
By my side, you'll never be
Cuz I'm fake at the seams


Soul Kitchen - The Doors ( I have many favorite Doors lyrics, but this is just one for now)



The cars crawl past all stuffed with eyes
Street lights shed their hollow glow
Your brain seems bruised with numb surprise
still one place to go, still one place to go

Let me Sleep all Night
In your soul kitchen
warm my mind with your gentle stove
turn me out and I'll wander baby
Strollin' in the neon lights


Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones



When I'm watching my TV
And a man come on to tell me
How white my shirts can be
But he can't be a man cuz he doesn't smoke, the same cigarettes as me


Wish you Were Here - Pink Floyd



How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.


I go to the Barn because I like - Band of Horses



well I'd like to think I'm the mess you'd wear with pride.
like some empty dress on the bed you've layed out for tonight.
**
outside, by your doorstep
in a worn out suit and tie.
I'll wait
for you to come down
where you'll find me
where we'll shine.


- Carrot

I have so much! but I'll let others put some in first, before I add some more!

ooooo I like how even with just 3 posts we already have genre diversity


carrot - great selection! Iris is one of my faves as well.

MrMysticism - I love/hate it when songs trigger memories. Love it for the good memories (which I'm sure this was for you) but hate it for the bad ones...
Like this one, which was played at a friend's funeral when she died at 15 years old
hate hearing it, but it does have good lyrics.

100 years by Five for Fighting


15 there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

One of my favourite lines comes from The Clash song 'Death or Glory'.

"But I believe in this and it's been tested by research,
he who #s nuns will later join The Church"

Classic Strummer.

Stone Roses - Ten Storey Love Song.

Great lyrics throughout, but the second verse means a lot to me.

www.lyricsfreak.com...

"Theres no sure fire set solution
No short cut through the trees
No breach in the wall
That they put there
To keep me from you
As youre lying awake in the darkness
This everlasting night
Someday soon
Dont know where or when
Youre gonna wake up and see the light"

Man Overboard by blink-182


So sorry it's over
So sorry it's over

There's so much more that I wanted and
There's so much more that I needed and
Time keeps moving on and on and on
Soon we'll all be gone

Let's take some time to talk this over
You're out of line and rarely sober
We can't depend on your excuses
Cause in the end it's #ing useless

You can only lean on me for so long
Bring your ship about to watch a friend drown
Stood over the ledge
Begged you to come down
You can only lean on me for so long

I remember shots, without a chaser
absent minds thoughts, now you're a stranger
Cover up the scars
Put on your game face
Left you in a bar
To try and save face

You can only lean on me for so long
Bring your ship about to watch a friend drown
Stood over the ledge
Begged you come down
You can only lean on me for so long

So sorry it's over
So sorry it's over

There's so much more that I wanted and
There's so much more that I needed and
Time keeps moving on and on and on
Soon we'll all be gone

Man on a mission
Can't say I miss him around
Insider information
Hand in your resignation
Loss of a good friend
Best of intentions I found
Tight lipped procrastination
Yeah later
See you around




Reminds me of when I had to give an ultimatum to one of my close friends who had a really bad drug habit...

My vote will have to go to Oceanlab - On A Good Day



Little bit lost and...
A little bit lonely
Little bit cold here
A little bit feared

But I hold on
And I
Feel strong
And I
Know that I can

Getting used to it
Lit the fuse to it
Like to know who I am

Been talking to myself forever, yeah
And how I wish I knew me better, yeah
Still sitting on a shelf and never
Never seen the sun shine brighter
And it feels like me
On a good day

And it feels like me
On a good day

I'm a little bit hemmed in
A little bit isolated
A little bit hopeful
A little bit cold

But I hold on
And I
Feel strong
And I
Know that I can

Getting used to it
Lit the fuse to it
Like to know who I am

Been talking to myself forever, yeah
And how I wish I knew me better, yeah
Still sitting on a shelf and never
Never seen the sun shine brighter...

And it feels like me
On a good day

Been talking to myself forever, yeah
And how I wish I knew me better, yeah
Still sitting on a shelf and never
Never seen the sun shine brighter
And it feels like me
On a good day

Snow Patrol: You Could Be Happy

You could be happy and I won't know
But you weren't happy the day I watched you go

And all the things that I wished I had not said
Are played in loops 'till it's madness in my head

Is it too late to remind you how we were
But not our last days of silent screaming blur

Most of what I remember makes me sure
I should have stopped you from walking out the door

You could be happy, I hope you are
You made me happier than I'd been by far

Somehow everything I own smells of you
And for the tiniest moment it's all not true

Do the things that you always wanted to
Without me there to hold you back, don't think, just do

More than anything I want to see you, girl
Take a glorious bite out of the whole world

For me at the moment it's the following:

Madonna - Devil Wouldn’t Recognize You

It’s quiet as it is tonight
You’d almost think you were saved
Your eyes are full of surprises
They cannot predict my fate
Waiting underneath the stars
There’s something you should know
The angels they surround my heart
Telling me to let you go

I bet you couldn’t
I bet you couldn’t recognize but I’ve been hidin’ to it
Who am I to criticize
Somehow I’ll get through it and you won’t even realize
Falling through your own disguise

It’s like over and over
You’re pushing me right down to the floor
I should just walk away
Over and over I keep on coming back for more
I play into your fantasy
Now that it’s over
You can lie to me right through your smile
I’ve seen behind your eyes
Now I’m sober
The more intoxicating my mind

Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you, I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you, I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you, I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you, I do
I do, I do

You almost proved yourself this time
That all the saints be praised
You hide your sadness behind your smile
And you keep your lost heartbreaks
The steps that are just on the ledge
Is much higher than it seems
That I’ve been on that ledge before
You can’t hide yourself from me

I bet you couldn’t
I bet you couldn’t recognize, I still play bad to it
Who am I to criticize
Somehow I’ll get through it and you won’t even realize
Falling through your own disguise

It’s like over and over
You’re pushin’ me right down to the floor
I should just walk away
Over and over I keep on coming back for more
I play into your fantasy
Now that it’s over
You can lie to me right through your smile
I’ve seen behind your eyes
Now I’m sober
The more intoxicating my mind

Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you, I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you, I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you, I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you, I do
I do, I do

It’s like over and over
You’re pushin’ me right down to the floor
I should just walk away
Over and over I keep on coming back for more
I play into your fantasy
Now that it’s over
You can lie to me right through your smile
I’ve seen behind your eyes
Now I’m sober
The more intoxicating my mind

Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you, I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you, I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you, I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you, I do
I do, I do

Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you

I'm excited! Great choices! Some of these songs are ones that I have not heard before, or never paid attention to the lyrics... Very interesting to learn new songs
here's another one of my favorites.

Becoming the bull - by Atreyu

Grab the bull by the horns the old addage goes.
Nobody tells you where to go from here.
I see whats greatful in you.
Decisions have to be made.
The worse path is the hardest earned.

Back and forth the struggle consumes us all.
Trying to keep a level head.
In the most unsettling of times.
Today I'll become the bull. (Become the bull!)

There is so much at steak.
I'll stumble I'll loose my place.
Crowded in while surrounded by sin.
Destiny takes its hold.
Find it or let it go.
But I choose how the day will end.

G-G-G-Go!

Back and forth the struggle consumes us all.
Trying to keep a level head.
In the most unsettling of times.
Today I'll become the bull. (Become the bull!)
Today I'll become the bull.

This small heart can get lonely.
I lose myself inside myself.
No one can touch you when you're outside staring in.
Remove myself from this pride race.

Okay here's a few more!!! *I have tonnes of Music to sort through and put up here*

"From California" - The New Amsterdams


It's vivid and strong in my memory,
an absence that smacks of abandoning.
It let to the battle that ultimately destroyed us.
I'm nothing if I don't know your mistakes,
the pill is as bitter as I can take.
It twists like a blade when I leave for California.

I hope that you know this is killing me,
it's all in the name of the family.
We only can play the cards the dealer dealt us.


"Home" - Daughtry


I'm going home to the place where i belong
Where your love has always been enough for me
I'm not running from, no I think you got me all wrong
I don't regret this life I chose for me
But these places and these faces are getting old
So I'm going Home


"In the Sun" - Chris Martin (Coldplay) & Michael Stipe (REM)


I know I would apologize
If I could, see in your eyes
Cuz when you showed me myself you know,
I became, someone else
And I was caught in between
all you wish for, and all you need
I picture you fast asleep
Nightmare comes, you can't keep awake
...
I don't know anymore, what its for
I'm not even sure
If there is anyone, who is in the sun
Would you help me to understand
Cuz I've been caught in between
all you wish for and all you need
Well maybe your not even sure
What its for
Anymore than me.


"Hands Down" - Dashboard Confessional


My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me
So won't you kill me, so I die Happy
My heart is yours to fill or burst
To break or Bury
Or wear as jewelry, whichever you prefer
...
Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember,
I'll always remember the sound of the stereo,
the dim of the soft lights,
the scent of your hair that you twirled in your fingers
and the time on the clock when we realized it's so late
and this walk that we shared together.
The streets were wet
and the gate was locked so I jumped it,
and I let you in.
And you stood at your door with your hands on my waist
and you kissed me like you meant it.
And I knew that you meant it,
that you meant it,


"Settle for a Slowdown" - Dierks Bently


I must look just like a fool here
in the middle of the road
standing there in your rearview
and getting soaked to the bone
this land is flat as it is mean
a man can see for a hundred miles
So im still praying I might see
the glow of a brake light.
...
If it hurts at all
you aint showed it yet
I keep a lookin' for
the slightest sign that you might miss
what you left behind
I know there's nothing stopping you now
but I'd settle for a slowdown.


"No Good" - Kate Voegele (I just found her, she is amazing)


Well I should know so much better than this
But you've occupied the center of my universe
...
I'm moving in reverse
Under your mighty curse
I hate myself for loving you
I turn my head away
But my heart will remain
'Till the day I learn you're No Good for me


- Carrot

One of my favs;


Animal Farm - Lyrics by Clutch

Listen up you stinking maggots, it seems you just don't get it.
Well I've been appointed to inform you, your days are numbered.
You would cry, you would scream
If you knew half the things I see.
Please, please just do as I say,
Repent and leave your evil ways.

Meanwhile....planes drop from the sky,
People disappear and bullets fly.
Little grey men are coming our way,
(Tastes just like chicken, they say.)
Actually they're all around.
Secret bunkers underground.
Round 'em up, skin 'em alive,
Rolling, rolling, rolling, rawhide.

Carter is a clone.
Dozen brothers 'round the globe.
MJ-12 damned us to hell.
Scroll & Key, Skull & Bone.
It's only just begun.
The best is yet to come.
Area 51,
The spawn of Babylon.

Couldn't give a damn about "J.F.K.",
Everything's conspiracy.
Wouldn't be surprised if they have their way
(Tastes just like chicken, they say.)
I know it's hard to swallow.
It must sound too far fetched.
But you can bet your bottom dollar
I ain't going like the rest.

"Swans" - Unckle Bob


By my side, you'll never be
By my side, you'll never be
Cuz I'm fake at the seams
Lost in my dreams, and I,
I want you to know,
that I, I can't let you go
...
You tell me that you love me but you never want to see me again
You tell me that you love me but you never want to see me again
You tell me that you love me but you never want to see me again
You tell me that you love me but you never want to see me again


"Can I come Accross" - Bruce Murdoch


Its hard to talk, when you know someone
Baby, and I do
I have to come accross for when I can
Come accross to you
...
It was you who got the door unlocked
When my heart was frozen
...
Can I come Accross to you?
Can I come accross
Can I come accross to you?


"Walking in Memphis" - Cher (I love her version)


Put on my Blue Suede shoes and i,
boarded the plane
Touched down, in the land of the delta blue
middle of the pouring Rain
...
Gabrielle plays Piano
Every Friday at the Hollywood
And they took me down to see him
And asked me if I would
Do a little number
and I sang with all my might
He said "Tell me are you a christian child"
and i said
Man I am tonight


- Carrot

I like White Zombie's Black Sunshine




(gripping the wheel his knuckles went white with desire The wheels of his mustang exploding on the highway like a slug from a .45 True death: 400 horsepower of maximum performance piercing the night This is black sunshine.) Yeah! move me in the silence baltic motorway Hang me on the edge before I fall away Apocalypse is dawnin action on the mile A can-do revolution, earth to the river [nile] Sweetn the ride black sunshine Sweetn the ride, yeah! Sweetn the ride black sunshine Sweetn the ride, yeah! Cry a river cosmic, moon in scorpio Feel her body breathe, acid radio Tell me that you like it, when Im going down! Tell me that you like it, move to the speed of [sound] Sweetn the ride black sunshine Sweetn the ride, yeah! Sweetn the ride black sunshine Sweetn the ride, yeah! Go! slide into, I said 44 cool heart can A hypnotize dream into infinity, I turned the love to lies Crawl across the water, wave and sink into the sea Reflectn onto everything, that you can never be check-out!, yeah! To the devil a daughter comes 200 worlds away, yeah Born to lose the love you choose, destroy another day Check out!! Sweetn the ride black sunshine Sweetn the ride, yeah! Sweetn the ride black sunshine Sweetn the ride Stare into the t.v. kiss off the pain Wonderland is falling, no sing, no rain momentary Damage into the high drift me to the circuit sky (finally nothing moves. high noon. Black top rolling below the asphalt drive A concrete fascination scraping the edge of nothing This is black sunshine.)


And Billy Idol's Rebel Yell




Last night a little dancer came dancin' to my door Last night a little angel Came pumpin cross my floor She said "Come on baby I got a licence for love And if it expires pray help from above" In the midnight hour she cried- "more, more, more" With a rebel yell she cried- "more, more, more" In the midniight hour babe- "more, more, more" With a rebel yell- "more, more, more" More, more, more. She don't like slavery, she won't sit and beg But when I'm tired and lonely she sees me to bed What set you free and brought you to be me babe What set you free I need you hear by me Because In the midnight hour she cried- "more, more, more" With a rebel yell she cried- "more, more, more" In the midniight hour babe- "more, more, more" With a rebel yell- "more, more, more" He lives in his own heaven Collects it to go from the seven eleven Well he's out all night to collect a fare Just so long, just so long it don't mess up his hair. I walked the ward with you, babe A thousand miles with you I dried your tears of pain, babe A million times for you I'd sell my soul for you babe For money to burn with you I'd give you all, and have none, babe Just, just, justa, justa to have you here by me Because In the midnight hour she cried- "more, more, more" With a rebel yell she cried- "more, more, more" In the midniight hour babe- "more, more, more" With a rebel yell she cried "more, more, more" More, more, more. Oh yeah little baby she want more More, more, more, more, more. Oh yeah little baby she want more More, more, more, more.

Audioslave-- I am the Highway

Pearls that swim the rift of me
Long and weary my road has been
I was lost in the cities
Alone in the hills
No sorrow I feel
For anything I feel yea

I am not your rolling wheels
I am a highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky

Friends and liars
Dont wait for me
Cause Ill get on
All by myself
Put millions of miles
Under my heels
And still too close to you
I feel

I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind
I am the sky here
I am not your automn moon
I am the night
The night

I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet rag
I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind
I am the lightining
I am not your automon
I am the night
