Lyrical Epiphanies Rain On You

2nd October, 2005. 5:40 am. Happy Birthday, Dad.(random_yayness)

Linkin Park - Faint

I am
little bit of loneliness
a little bit of disregard
a handful of complaints
but I can't help the fact
that everyone can see these scars
I am
what I want you to want
what I want you to feel
but it's like
no matter what I do
I can't convince you
to just believe this is real
So I let go
watching you
turn your back like you always do
face away and pretend that I'm not
but I'll be here
'cause you're all that I got

I can't feel
the way I did before
don't turn your back on me
I WON'T BE IGNORED
Time won't heal
this damage anymore
don't turn your back on me
I WON'T BE IGNORED

I am
a little bit insecure
a little unconfident
'cause you don't understand
I do what I can
but sometimes I don't make sense
I am
what you never want to say
but I've never had a doubt
it's like no matter what I do
I can't convince you
for once just to hear me out
So I let go
watching you
turn your back like you always do
face away and pretend that I'm not
but I'll be here
'cause you're all that I got

I can't feel
the way I did before
don't turn your back on me
I WON'T BE IGNORED
Time won't heal
this damage anymore
don't turn your back on me
I WON'T BE IGNORED

NO
HEAR ME OUT NOW
YOU'RE GONNA LISTEN TO ME
LIKE IT OR NOT
RIGHT NOW
HEAR ME OUT NOW
YOU'RE GONNA LISTEN TO ME
LIKE IT OR NOT RIGHT NOW

I can't feel
the way I did before
don't turn your back on me
I WON'T BE IGNORED
Time won't heal
this damage anymore
don't turn your back on me
I WON'T BE IGNORED.

Linkin Park - Figure.09

Nothing ever stops all these thoughts
and the pain attached to them
Sometimes I wonder why this is happening
It's like nothing I can do
will distract me when
I think of how I shot myself in the back again
'cause from the infinite words I could say /I
put all the pain you gave to me on
display/But didn't
realize/instead of setting it free/I
took what I hated and made it a part of me

[It never goes away]

And now
you've become a part of me
you'll always be right here
you've become a part of me
you'll always be my fear
I can't separate myself from
what I've done
I've given up a part of me
I've let myself become you

Hearing your name/the memories
come back again
I remember when it started happening
I'd see you in every thought I had and then
the thoughts slowly found words
attached to them
and I knew as they escaped away I was
committing myself to them/and every day I
regret saying those things/'cause now
I see /that I
took what I hated and made it a part of me

[It never goes away]

And now
you've become a part of me
you'll always be right here
you've become a part of me
you'll always be my fear
I can't separate myself from
what I've done
I've given up a part of me
I've let myself become you

Get away from
ME
gimme my space back/you gotta just
GO
everything comes down to memories of
YOU
I've kept it in but now I'm letting you
KNOW
I've let you go
get away from me

I've let myself become you
I've let myself bome lost inside these
thoughts of you
giving up a part of me
I've let myself become you

Current mood: drained.

"She Has No Time"
by Keane

You think your days are uneventful
And no one ever thinks about you
She goes her own way
She goes her own way
You think your days are ordinary
And no one ever thinks about you
But we're all the same
And she can hardly breathe without you

She says she has no time
For you now
She says she has no time

Think about the lonely people
Then think about the day she found you
Or lie to yourself
And see it all dissolve around you

She says she has no time
For you now
She says she has no time
For you now
She says she has no time

Lonely people tumble downwards
My heart opens up to you
When she says

She says she has no time
For you now
She says she has no time
For you now
She says she has no time

"Learn to Be Lonely"
From the Phantom of the Opera soundtrack

Child of the wilderness
Born into emptiness
Learn to be lonely
Learn to find your way in darkness
Who will be there for you
Comfort and care for you
Learn to be lonely
Learn to be your one companion
Never dreamed out in the world
There are arms to hold you?
You've always known
Your heart was on its own
So laugh in your loneliness
Child of the wilderness
Learn to be lonely
Learn how to love life that is lived alone
Learn to be lonely
life can be lived
life can be loved
Alone.

1st April, 2005. 9:54 am. Sad Clown - Jars of Clay(random_yayness)

"Sad Clown"

Say how's the weather, so I look out the window
To brighten my soul, but I can't control the rain
That keeps falling
Smile on the outside that never comes in
A comedy, mystery, irony, tragedy
So I scream "let the show begin"

You break me open, turn on the light
Stumble inside with me, with me

Do I entertain you?
Do I preoccupy you with my wit to cover this lie?
Are you mesmerized?
Do you think me faithful, do you think me a clown?
I picked out this shirt, I put on this hat
I wore all this paint just for you

You break me open, turn on the light
Stumble inside with me, with me

Current mood: discontent.

24th March, 2005. 5:59 am. Empty - Cranberries(random_yayness)

Empty

Something has left my life,
And I don't know where it went to
Somebody caused my strife
And it's not what I was seeking

Didn't you see me, didn't you hear me
Didn't you see me standing there

Why did you turn out the lights
Did you know that I was sleeping

Say a prayer for me
Help me to feel the strength I did
My identity, has it been taken
Is my heart breaking on me

All my plans fell through my hands,
They fell through my hands on me
In my dreams it suddenly seems
empty

empty

WORDS BY D. O'RIORDAN. MUSIC BY D. O'RIORDAN / N. HOGAN

I think I just found a new favorite christmas song **grins**
These are the best lyrics I could find for it...so they could be lacking...


"I Won't Be Home For Christmas" by Blink 182

Outside the carollers start to sing
I can't describe the joy they bring
Cause joy is something they don't bring me
My girlfriend is by my side
From the roof are hanging sickles of ice
Their whiny voices get irriating...it's Christmas time again
So I stand with a dead smile on my face
Wondering how much of my time they'll waste
Oh God, I hate these Satan's helpers
And then I guess I must have snapped
Because I grabbed the baseball bat
And made them all run for shelter
It's Christmas time, again
It's time to be nice to the people you can't stand, All year
I'm growing tired of all this Christmas cheer
You people scare me
Please stay away from my home
If you don't get me down
Just leave the presents and let me be alone
Well, I guess it's not cool to freak out on Christmas Eve
Cause the cops came and arrested me
They had an unfair advantage
And even though the jail didn't have a tree
Christmas came a night early
Cause a guy named Bubba unwrapped my package
I won't be home, I won't be home for CHristmas
I won't be home, I won't be home for Christmas...

Just following Raqi's lead and posting some lyrics from my favorite band, Rilo Kiley.

Plane Crash in C by Rilo Kiley

if you're scared and it shows cause you're watching them grow
and traveling blows when you're out of road
and when you jump up the earth wants you back

your resentment grow till you're all alone
but you're so smart how could they not know
when you're standing there in good humored white

and how do you do it?
and make it seem effortless
when its all the stupid things
so overwhelming to me
like paying my bills
or showing up for work early
or laughing at your jokes

when you first said that anything goes
or a problem is a task disguised in work clothes
that's when i knew i had to move
and do you do it?
and make it seem delicate
when its all the stupid things
so damn confusing to me
like talking it through
controlling my temper
like letting it go
saying please forgive me
or laughing at your jokes

i have no idea what's been going on lately
and i just wish you'd come over and explain things

and i have no idea what's been going on lately
and i just wish you'd come over and explain things

i have no idea what's been going on lately
and i just wish you'd come over and explain things

i have no idea what's been going on lately
and i just wish you'd come over and explain things

why do they do it?
show up anyway
when they know that damn well
there is no room for promotions out here
and maybe it's wise
and maybe i'm just stupid
for laughing at your jokes


Current mood: chipper.

31st August, 2004. 5:24 pm. Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright/Leonard Cohen(random_yayness)

Hallelujah
Copyright © 1985 Leonard Cohen and Sony/ATV Music Publishing Canada Company.

I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty
in the moonlight
overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne,
she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe I've been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time you'd let me know
What's real and going on below
But now you never show it to me do you?
Remember when I moved in you?
The holy dark was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there's a God above
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
It's not a cry you can hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Current mood: happy.

hi, i'm new and there is this song that i really enjoy but can never find the name. i have searched everywhere online but it's hard to find a song that you don't know the name of the artist or song title. it's a soft rock, kinda country type song that has been around for a while (at least 8 years. her are some of the lyrics:

the smell of you skin
the taste of your skin
the way you wisper in the dark

your hair all around me
baby you surround me
touch every place in my heart

oh it feels like the first time
every time

i wanna spend my whole life
in your eyes

(chorus)
i don't know how you do what you do
i'm so in love with you
it just keeps getting better
i wanna spend the rest of my life
with you by my side
forever and ever
every little thing that you do

Current mood: anxious.

Don't know what it is about these lyrics, that have drawn me to them...but here they are....



"One Thing"
~Finger Eleven

Restless tonight
Cause I wasted the light
Between both these times
I drew a really thin line
It’s nothing I planned
And not that I can
But you should be mine
Across that line

If I traded it all
If I gave it all away for one thing
Just for one thing
If I sorted it out
If I knew all about this one thing
Wouldn’t that be something

I promise I might
Not walk on by
Maybe next time
But not this time

Even though I know
I don’t want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

If I traded it all
If I gave it all away for one thing
Just for one thing
If I sorted it out
If I knew all about this one thing
Wouldn’t that be something

Even though I know
I don’t want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds (repeat)

If I traded it all
If I gave it all away for one thing
Just for one thing
If I sorted it out
If I knew all about this one thing
Wouldn’t that be something (repeat until the end)
