Hey, i wanna start this thread up again because it is a fun thread.

"The world was on fire and no one could save me but you,

It's strange what desire will make foolish people do.

I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you

I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you"-Chris Issak, Wicked Game

"And I knew if i had my chance, I could make those people dance and maybe they'd be happy for a while"-Don Mclean, American Pie

"Mirrors on the ceiling,

pink champagne on ice

and she said "we are all just prisioners here,

Of our own device"

And in the master's chambers

they gather for the feast

they stab it with their steely knives but they just can't kill the beast

Last thing i remember

I was running for the door

i had to find the passage back

to the place i was before

"Relax" said the nightman

"we are programmed to recieve

you can check out anytime you like,

but you can never leave" *que amazing guitar solo*-The Eagles, Hotel California, i love that whole song

"Whatever makes you happy, whatever you want. I wish i was special. You're so F***in' special.-Radiohead, Creep

"Did I say that I loathe you? Did I say that i want to leave it all behind?.... I can't take my eyes off of you"-Damien Rice, The Blowers Daughter

"There's a drought at the fountain of youth, and now I'm dehydrating

My tongue is swelling up, I say.....*long suspenseful pause*..... SH*T!"-Green Day,Hitchin' a Ride

"Are you locked up in a world that's been planned out for you? Are you feeling like a social tool without a use? Scream at me until my ears bleed, I'm taking heed just for you"-Green Day, She

"Under the bridge downtown, forgot about my love

Under the bridge downtown, i gave my life away"-RHCP, Under the Bridge

"Cut my throat and watch me bleed, addicted tragedy

And I hate you and you hate me

So stand in line motherF***ers don't waste my time"-Murderdolls, People Hate Me

"She isn't real, I can make her real"-Slipknot,Vermilion

Heart ~ These Dreams

"The sweetest song is silence

That I've ever heard

Funny how your feet

In dreams never touch the earth

In a wood full of princes

Freedom is a kiss

But the prince hides his face

From dreams in the mist"

The Beatles ~ Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

"Picture yourself in a boat on a river,

With tangerine trees and marmalade skies

Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,

A girl with kaleidoscope eyes."

Emerson, Lake & Palmer ~ Still...You Turn Me On

"You see it really doesn't matter

when you're buried in disguise

by the dark glass on your eyes,

though your flesh has crystalised;

Still .... you turn me on."

And just to finish off nicely, because I think this song is fab and the lyrics are so cool ::

Alice Cooper ~ I'm Your Gun

"Your Momma thinks I'm filthy

Alright...

And your Daddy calls me scum

Alright...

Wrap your fingers all around me

I'm your g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-gun!

I'm dressed in black

I'm a heart attack

And my draw is lightning quick

If you're looking for a man with magic hands

I can really do the trick

And if you see me on the street

And you're burnin' from the heat

There's a fire down below

You be the target on the bed

I'll be shootin' hot lead

Let me take control

You're a scared little girl in this big, bad town

So easy to sink, so easy to drown

Pull my trigger, I get bigger

Then I'm lots of fun

I'm your gun

I'm your gun, gun, gun

Bite my bullet

Push and pull it

Tell me I'm the one

I'm your gun

I'm your gun, gun, gun

Hold on steady, always ready, yeah

Well, I'm as hard as they come

I'm a hit and run

I'm a pistol packin' boy

Better walk real slow

I'm on the edge, y'know

And I'm easily annoyed

If something's giving you trouble

I'll be there on the double

Just call me on the line

I've got a muscle I can flex

It'll fog your little specs

Til you think you're going blind

I know these streets like the scars on my back

And I stay as loaded as this gun on my back

Pull my trigger, I get bigger

Then I'm lots of fun

I'm your gun

I'm your gun, gun, gun

Bite my bullet

Push and pull it

Tell me I'm the one

I'm your gun

I'm your gun, gun, gun

Squeeze it tighter

Aim and fire, yeah

Hold on steady, always ready,

yeah, yeah, yeah"

"In My Life" - The Beatles

"There are places I remember

All my life, though some have changed,

Some forever, not for better,

Some have gone and some remain.

All these places had their moments,

With lovers and friends I still can recall,

Some are dead and some are living,

In my life I've loved them all..."

"My My Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)" ? Neil Young:

"My my, hey hey

Rock and roll is here to stay

It's better to burn out

Than to fade away

My my, hey hey.

Out of the blue

and into the black

They give you this,

but you pay for that

And once you're gone,

you can never come back

When you're out of the blue

and into the black..."

"Simple Twist of Fate" ? Bob Dylan:

"...He woke up, the room was bare

He didn't see her anywhere.

He told himself he didn't care, pushed the window open wide,

Felt an emptiness inside to which he just could not relate

Brought on by a simple twist of fate.

He hears the ticking of the clocks

And walks along with a parrot that talks,

Hunts her down by the waterfront docks where the sailers all come in.

Maybe she'll pick him out again, how long must he wait

Once more for a simple twist of fate.

People tell me it's a sin

To know and feel too much within.

I still believe she was my twin, but I lost the ring.

She was born in spring, but I was born too late

Blame it on a simple twist of fate."

Anything by Smokey Robinson. His early lyrics were incredibly ingenious.

Anything by The Style Council. I looooove Paul Weller!

Anthing by Jim Croce.

And if you ever get the chance, listen to an old Tango by Carlos Gardel: "Volver" I believe it's from around 1920, but it's incredibly poetic and it certainly has the best song lyrics I ever heard.

Quote

Yo adivino el parpadeo

de las luces que a lo lejos

van marcando mi retorno...

Son las mismas que alumbraron

con sus palidos reflejos

hondas horas de dolor...

Y aunque no quise el regreso,

siempre se vuelve al primer amor...

La vieja calle donde el eco dijo

tuya es su vida, tuyo es su querer,

bajo el burlon mirar de las estrellas

que con indiferencia hoy me ven volver...

Volver ...

con la frente marchita,

las nieves del tiempo platearon mi sien

Sentir ...

que es un soplo la vida,

que veinte años no es nada,

que febril la mirada, errante en las sombras,

te busca y te nombra.

Vivir ...

con el alma aferrada

a un dulce recuerdo

que lloro otra vez...

Volver, con la frente marchita

las nieves del tiempo platearon mi sien.

Sentir, que es un soplo la vida

etc.

"Are you locked up in a world that's been planned out for you? Are you feeling like a social tool without a use? Scream at me until my ears bleed, I'm taking heed just for you"-Green Day, She

..............................................................

oh wow, mairi, i loved that song when it came out, and NO ONE ever talked about it!

some lyrics that ive always loved because they have reflected how i feel at different points in my life:

"and i realise with freight, the spiderman is having me for dinner tonight And I feel like I?m being eaten by a thousand

Million shivering furry holes and I know that in

The morning I will wake up in the shivering cold

And the spiderman is always hungry...", the cure, lullaby

"Well the music is your special friend

Dance on fire as it intends

Music is your only friend

Until the end" the doors

"suddenly i can see everything thats wrong with me, but what can i do, im the only thing i really have, at all" chris cornell

"if i could be who you wanted all the time.." radiohead, fake plastuc trees

"i dont wanna come back down from this cloud, its taken me all this time to find out what i need" bush, comedown

"i dream at night of going home someday, somewhere so far away, so dream alright, i know its gonna take sometime, im going home, someday..." miner at the dial-a-view, grandaddy

"can you see that i am needing, begging for some much more than you could ever give, i dont want you to adore me, dont want you to ignore me, when it pleases you, i can do it on my own" muse, muscle museum

"you're still alive, she said, but do i deserve to be, is that the question, and if so, who answers? ", pearl jam, alive

"give a reason to love you, give me a reason to be.. a woman, i just wanna be a woman.." portishead, glory box

"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 we found?

The same old fears.

Wish you were here. " pink floyd, wish you were here

ok, ill stop there, i could go one forever...

This is a very special song to me... I think that, after having read billions and billions of lyrics, this simple song resumes all... all inside of me.

Listen to k.d. lang's version of it and you'll fall on your knees.

Shadowland

I'm a shadow since you're gone

Just a shadow in the dawn

That breaks in the sand

A shadow lost in shadowland

My poor heart just flew away

When it realized one day

The dreams that we planned

Would only end in shadowland

I always wondered

Why you had to go

Whatever blunder I mad

I don't know

I guess that something

Turned out wrong

Didn't quite belong

In this lover's song

I'm a shadow, but you know

I'm the one who loves you so

So please, take my hand

And lead me out of shadowland

Just lead me out of Shadowland.

Aiden.

If it's getting harder to face every day

Don't let it show, don't let it show

Though it's getting harder to take what they say

Just let it go, just let it go

And if it hurts when they mention my name

Say you don't know me

And if it helps when they say I'm to blame

Say you don't own me

Even if it's taking the easy way out

Keep it inside of you

Don't give in

Don't tell them anything

Don't let it

Don't let it show

Even though you know it's the wrong thing to say

Say you don't care, say you don't care

Even if you want to believe there's a way

I won't be there, I won't be there

But if you smile when they mention my name

They'll never know you

And if you laugh when they say I'm to blame

They'll never own you

Even if you feel you've got nothing to hide

Keep it inside of you

Don't give in

Don't tell them anything

Don't let it

Don't let it show
