Everyone has a song that, the words just get to them. Whether it's your emotional state, or it describes how you feel... Mine suprised me. I may have more, but off the top of my head I can't think of them. I'll post more later.





"Epiphany"

Staind



Your words to me just a whisper

Your faces so unclear

I try to pay attention

Your words just disappear



'Cause its always raining in my head

Forget all the thing's I should have said



So I speak to you in riddles because

My words get in my way. I smoke the

whole thing to my head and feel it

wash away 'cause i don't take anymore

or this, I want to come apart.

or dig myself a little hole inside

your precious heart



'Cause its always raining in my head

Forget all the things I should have said



I am nothing more than a little boy inside

That cries out for attention

though I always try to hide

'Cause I talk to you like children,

Though I don't know how I feel

But I know I'll do the right thing

If the right thing is revealed



'Cause its always raining in my head

Forget all the things I should have said

Oh my god!!! I LOVE that song!!!!!!! Man I can never listen to it just once. Whenever I come across the song on a CD I just end up pressing "back" when the song is over, ... a million times, until other people get annoyed, haha!



My song that gets to me no matter if I'm happy sad or hyper is this one:



Trouble by Cat Stevens



Trouble oh trouble set me free

I have seen your face

And it's too much for me

Trouble oh trouble can't you see

You're eating my heart away

And there's nothing left of me



I've drunk your wine

You have made your world mine

So won't you be fair

So won't you be fair

I don't want no more of you

So won't you be kind to me

Just let me go where

I have to go there



Trouble oh trouble move away

I have seen your face

And it's too much for me today

Trouble oh trouble can't you see

You have made me a wreck

Now won't you leave me in my misery



I have seen you eyes

And I can see deaths disguise

Hanging on me

Hanging on me

I'm beat I'm torn

Shattered and tossed and worn

Too shocking to see

Too shocking to see



Trouble oh trouble move from me

I have paid my debt now

Won't you leave me in my misery

Trouble oh trouble please be kind

Don't wan't no fight

And I haven't got a lot of time

Commercial For Levi by Placebo - so many people I've known I wished I could beat this song into their head. Good song, too.



You're the one who's always choking Trojan

You're the one who's always bruised and broken

Sleep may be the enemy

But so's another line

It's a remedy

You should take more time



You're the one who's always choking trojan

You're the one who's showers always golden

Spunk & bestiality well it's an Assisi lie

It's ahead of me

You should close your fly



I understand the fascination

The dream that comes alive at night

But if you don't change your situation

Then you'll die, you'll die, don't die, don't die

Please don't die



You're the one who's always choking trojan

You're the one who's always bruised and broken

Drunk on immorality

Valium and cherry wine

Coke and ecstasy

You're gonna blow your mind



I understand the fascination

I've even been there once or twice or more

But if you don't change your situation

Then you'll die, you'll die, don't die, don't die

Two particular songs that definetly got to me unexpectadly when I first heard them were

Bob Dylan's- The Times They are a Changin'

and

Johnny Cash's- Hurt.



Two wonderful songs. Dylan's has AWSOME lyrics... Cash's has AWSOME music. I could listen to these songs a hundred thousand times and never get sick of them. Maybe that's why they've lasted so long

Found another one. This one REALLY hit home...



Acoustic #3

Goo Goo Dolls



They painted up your secrets

With the lies they told you

And the least they ever gave you

Was the most you ever knew



And I wonder where these dreams go

When the world gets in your way

What's the point in all this screaming

No one's listening anyway



Your voice is small and fading

And you hide in here unknown

And your mother loves your father

'Cause she's got nowhere to go



And she wonders where these dreams go

'Cause the world got in her way

What's the point in ever trying

Nothing's changing anyway



They press their lips against you

And you love the lies they say

And I tried so hard to reach you

But you're falling anyway



And you know I see right through you

When the world gets in your way

What's the point in all the screaming

You're not listening anyway

I found a couple more that hit me pretty hard as well... All these songs are by Guster. (if you don't put 2+2 together- my user name come from their songs)



The Airport Song



Glad you made it welcome to the farm

whos your daddy I'm your daddy now

I'm here seeking only what I need

In your mind is where ill plant my seed

It's for sure

let me keep you in this place you'll be better off this way

I will keep you warm and safe you'll be better off this way

learn to love the price you pay trust me dear youre better off this way

put to bed the son and sister moon I'll be hiding in your dirty room

I'll go there seeking only what I need la ti da well stay there till we bleed

It's for sure

let me keep you in this place you'll be better off this way

I will keep you warm and safe you'll be better off this way

I will not wake you from your sleep leave you wandering counting sheep

no more sad and sunshine days trust me dear youre better off this way





Fa Fa



when you look in the mirror

wish you were somebody else

Just a perfect reflection

you and no one else



minutes run into hours

hours run into days

you're still waiting for someone

who never ever came



fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa

never be the same again

fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa

never be the same again



you were always saying something

you swear you'd never say again

you were always saying something

you swear you'd never say again



fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa

never be the same again

fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa

never be the same again



Go and run through the hallways

find your way to the door

you will end up back always

back where you were before



Then you look in the mirror

wish you were somebody else

But it's still your reflection

you and no one else



you were always saying something

you swear you'd never say again

you were always saying something

you swear you'd never say again



fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa

never be the same again

fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa

never be the same again



no matter where you go

you'll never find your way home

you'll never find your way home

no matter where you go



I'll stop listening to music for the moment. hehehe. I just relate to so many songs.

This is a pretty commercial track that got a lot of airplay back in the day... but I remember I could sort of identify with it. Emphasis by me.



Shelter Me (Cinderella)

====================



Everybody needs a little place they can hide

Somewhere to call their own

Don't let nobody inside

Every now and then we all need to let go

For some it's the doctor

For me it's rock and roll



For some it's a bottle

For some it's a pill

Some people wave the Bible

Cause it's giving them a thrill

Others point their finger

If they don't like what they see

If you live in a glass house

Don't be throwing rocks at me




Check out Mr. Politician in his suit and tie

But when the doors are closed

There ain't nothin' he won't try

Meanwhile Mr. Medicine's

treating his best friend's wife



Tipper lead the war against the record industry

She said she saw the devil on her MTV

To look into the cabinet

It takes more than a key

Just like Jimmy's skeletons

And his ministry



We all need a little shelter

Just a little helper to get us by

We all need a little shelter

Just a little helper, and it'll be alright



==================

There's one more I'd post but chances are it'd offend people here cause its from Ted Nugent... but its a great tune so far as I am concerned called "Kiss My Ass"

I bought Sonic Youth's Dirty album not long after it came out (early 1990s) and first listened to it while I started having a nap (I was VERY tired). But then track 6 started and I was awake instantly (really needs to be heard..... some great f'ing around with guitar as only Sonic Youth can do).



Quote:

Wish Fulfillment



I see your wishes on the wall, and that's alright with me.

I see you run to make a call, hoping that there's someone free.

Your life and my life, they don't touch at all and that's no way to be. You've never seemed so far.....



What's real? What's true? I ain't turning my back on you.

Where you going? Where you been? Making wishes, watching dreams.

It might be simple, it might be true, I might be overwhelmed by you. You might be empty, the way your eyes just look right through.

It's such a mess now anyway, wish fulfillment every day.

I don't believe you, now I can't hear a word you say.



I see you shaking in the light, reading the headline news.

The others, they're not quite so bright, you want them to choose you.

I could almost see your face tonight, singin' simple rhythm and blues. You'll always be a star.....



Shake it baby! C'mon, scream! Did I see your face in a magazine?

Your doubt, it leaves me sore, I can't stand it anymore.

It's my favorite shot of you, you looked so pretty, your eyes were true.

I'm still on your side in spite of everything you do.

We're only blood on light on life, new pretty pictures every night

Come wish beside me, don't you know you know what's right?





And this (short) Pixies' track off of Surfer Rosa (lyrics are close to this):



Quote:
Something against you

Here it comes.

I got something against you. [repeated a bit]

Here we go.

I got something against you. [repeated a bit more]

And I am gonna use it. I am one happy prick.
