Little Boxes Malvina Reynolds

Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky-tacky,
Little boxes, little boxes,
Little boxes, all the same.
There’s a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same.

And the people in the houses
All go to the university,
And they all get put in boxes,
Little boxes, all the same.
And there’s doctors and there’s lawyers
And business executives,
And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same.

And they all play on the golf-course,
And drink their Martini dry,
And they all have pretty children,
And the children go to school.
And the children go to summer camp
And then to the university,
And they all get put in boxes
And they all come out the same.

And the boys go into business,
And marry, and raise a family,
And they all get put in boxes,
Little boxes, all the same.
There’s a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same.

Romaria
(Translated by the BRUNO. :moon: Original version in the bottom of the post.)

[size=100][color=#3366cc]Romaria is a Brazilian folk word for a roaming pilgrimage, one for a sanctuary (in particular, to that of Our Lady of Aparecida) or sacred place (particularly Pirapora do Bom Jesus) as a profession of faith and devotion.

Caipira is a word for a Brazilian bumpkin, a hick, a hillbilly.[/color][/size]

It’s of dream and of dust
The luck of a loner
Like myself completely lost in thought
Seat on my horse’s back
It’s of lasso and of knot
Of a basket, the fruit
Of this life
Accomplished alone I’m caipira, Pirapora, Our
Saint Lady of Aparecida
Light the dark deep mines and start
The engines of my living
Father was a cowboy
Mother was solitude
And my siblings lost themselves in life
At the expense of adventures
I split up, and I played
I invested, and quit
Whether there’s luck, I don’t know, never seen I’m caipira, Pirapora, Our
Saint Lady of Aparecida
Light the dark deep mines and start
The engines of my living
I was told, nonetheless
I should come to this place
To ask from my
Romaria and pray
For peace in my misfortunes
Since I don’t know to pray
I just wanted to say
With my eyes, with my eyes, with my eyes I’m caipira, Pirapora, Our
Saint Lady of Aparecida
Light the dark deep mines and start
The engines of my living

This song gives me chills every time I listen to it…

Marilyn Manson- They Say That Hell’s Not Hot

I kill myself in small amounts
in each relationship it’s not
about love.
Just another funeral and
just another girl left in tears.
And I’m waiting
with the sound turned off
I’m waiting
like a glass balloon
and I’m fading
into the void and then
I’m gone, I’m gone, I’m gone…
They said that hell’s not hot
They said that hell’s not hot
I gave my soul to someone else
she must have known that
it was already sold.
It was never about her,
it was about the hurt.
I’m waiting
like a glass balloon
and I’m fading
into the void and then
I’m gone, I’m gone, I’m gone…
They said that hell’s not hot
They said that hell’s not hot
I kill myself in small amounts
in each relationship it’s not
about love.
Just another funeral and
just another girl left in tears.
And I’m waiting
with the sound turned off
I’m waiting
like a glass balloon
and I’m fading
into the void and then
I’m gone, I’m gone, I’m gone…
They said that hell’s not hot
They said that hell’s not hot

Hey Hey, We’re the monkees - Theme from The Monkees
Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart

Here we come, walkin’
Down the street.
We get the funniest looks from
Ev’ry one we meet.
Hey, hey, we’re the Monkees
And people say we monkey around.
But we’re too busy singing
To put anybody down.

We go wherever we want to,
do what we like to do
We don’t have time to get restless,
There’s always something new.
Hey, hey, we’re the Monkees
And people say we monkey around.
But we’re too busy singing
To put anybody down.

We’re just tryin’ to be friendly,
Come and watch us sing and play,
We’re the young gneration,
And we’ve got something to say.

Any time, Or anywhere,
Just look over your shoulder
Guess who’ll be standing there

Hey, hey, we’re the Monkees
And people say we monkey around.
But we’re too busy singing
To put anybody down.

(break)

Hey, hey, we’re the Monkees
And people say we monkey around.
But we’re too busy singing
To put anybody down.

We’re just tryin’ to be friendly,
Come and watch us sing and play,
We’re the young gneration,
And we’ve got something to say.

Hey, hey, we’re the Monkees
Hey, hey, we’re the Monkees
[repeat and fade]

extra verse:

Hey, hey, we’re the Monkees,
You never know where we’ll be found.
so you’d better get ready,
We may be comin’ to your town.

America - Horse with No name

On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
And the sky with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound

Ive been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
cause there aint no one for to give you no pain
La, la …

After two days in the desert sun
My skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun
I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told of a river that flowed
Made me sad to think it was dead

You see Ive been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
cause there aint no one for to give you no pain
La, la …

After nine days I let the horse run free
cause the desert had turned to sea
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The ocean is a desert with its life underground
And a perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no love

You see Ive been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
cause there aint no one for to give you no pain
La, la …

Black Lace - Agadoo

Agadoo doo doo push pineapple shake the tree
Agadoo doo doo push pineapple grind coffee
To the left to the right jump up and down and to the knees
Come and dance every night sing with a hula melody

I met a hula mistress somewhere in Waikiki
Where she was selling pineapple playing ukulele
And when I went to the girl come on and teach me to sway
She laughed and whispered to me yes come tonight to the bay

The lovely beach and the sky
The moon of Hawaii
The rum calypso sarong
We’ll all be singing this song

Agadoo doo doo push pineapple shake the tree
Agadoo doo doo push pineapple grind coffee
To the left to the right jump up and down and to the knees
Come and dance every night sing with a hula melody

Agadoo doo doo push pineapple shake the tree
Agadoo doo doo push pineapple grind coffee
To the left to the right jump up and down and to the knees
Come and dance every night sing with a hula melody

Agadoo doo doo push pineapple shake the tree
Agadoo doo doo push pineapple grind coffee
To the left to the right jump up and down and to the knees
Come and dance every night sing with a hula melody

Then down on the shore
They gather romance
She showed me much more
Not only to dance

Agadoo doo doo push pineapple shake the tree
Agadoo doo doo push pineapple grind coffee
To the left to the right jump up and down and to the knees
Come and dance every night sing with a hula melody

Agadoo doo doo push pineapple shake the tree
Agadoo doo doo push pineapple grind coffee
To the left to the right jump up and down and to the knees
Come and dance every night sing with a hula melody

The lovely beach and the sky
The moon of Hawaii
The rum calypso sarong
We’ll all be singing this song

Agadoo doo doo push pineapple shake the tree
Agadoo doo doo push pineapple grind coffee
To the left to the right jump up and down and to the knees
Come and dance every night sing with a hula melo

Itsy Bitsy, Teeny Weeny,
Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

She was afraid to come out of the locker,
She was as nervous as she could be.
She was afraid to come out of the locker.
She was afraid that somebody would see.

Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore.

It was an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini,
That she wore for the first time today,
An itsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini,
So in the locker she wanted to stay.

Two, three, four, stick around we’ll tell you more.

She was afraid to come out of the blanket,
She was as nervous as she could be.
She was afraid to come out of the blanket.
She was afraid that somebody would see.

Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore.

It was an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini,
That she wore for the first time today,
An itsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini,
So in the blanket she wanted to stay.

Two, three, four, stick around we’ll tell you more.

She was afraid to come out of the water,
She was as nervous as she could be.
She was afraid to come out of the water.
She was afraid that somebody would see.

Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore.

It was an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini,
That she wore for the first time today,
An itsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini,
So in the water she wanted to stay.

From the locker to the blanket,
From the blanket to the shore,
From the shore to the water,
Guess there isn’t any more.

She was afraid to come out in the open,
And so a blanket around her she wore,
She was afraid to come out to the open,
And so she sat bundled up on the shore.

Now she’s afraid to come of the water,
And I wonder what she’s gonna to do,
Now she’s afraid to come out of the water,
And the poor little girl’s turning blue.

PAUL EVANS - “Seven Little Girls Sitting In The Back Seat”

(Dee doody doom doom)
(Dee doody doom doom)
(Dee doody doom doom, DOOM)

Seven little girls sittin’ in the back seat
Huggin and a’kissin with Fred
I said, why don’t one of you come up and sit beside me
And this is what the seven girls said

(All together now, one, two, three)
(Keep you mind on your drivin’)
(Keep you hands on the wheel)
(Keep your snoopy eyes on the road ahead)
(We’re havin’ fun sittin’ in the back seat)
(Kissin’ and a’huggin with Fred)
(Dee doody doom doom, dee doody doom doom)
(Dee doody doom doom, DOOM)

Drove through the town, drove through the country
Showed 'em how a motor could go
I said, how do you like my triple carburetor
And one of them whispered low

(All together now, one, two, three)
(Keep you mind on your drivin’)
(Keep you hands on the wheel)
(Keep your snoopy eyes on the road ahead)
(We’re havin’ fun sittin’ in the back seat)
(Kissin’ and a’huggin with Fred)
(Dee doody doom doom, dee doody doom doom)
(Dee doody doom doom, DOOM)

Seven little girls smoochin’ in the back seat
Every one in love with Fred
I said “you don’t need me, I’ll get off at my house”
And this is what the seven girls said

(All together now, one, two, three)
(Keep you mind on your drivin’)
(Keep you hands on the wheel)
(Keep your snoopy eyes on the road ahead)
(We’re havin’ fun sittin’ in the back seat)
(Kissin’ and a’huggin with Fred)

All of them in love with Fred
(Dee doody doom doom)
Kissin’ and a’huggin with Fred
(Dee doody doom doom)
Wish that I could be like Fred
(DOOM)

Yeah that’s right. My moogle tribute is some of the worst/most annoying songs ever written.

Shinedown - Yer Majesty

Come closer inside
There’s something I need you to see
It’s just a picture of what the ignorant believe
I come so you can know me
I’m here to make you proud
I come to wreck and guide you
I’m here to show you how

You know I’m coming for you
Cause I got nothing to lose
And now I’m still on my way for the pay

So you wanted to be free from everything you’ve done to me?
And you wanted to be known so you wouldn’t feel so alone?
And you wanted to believe that you steal our integrity?
And I’m sorry you’re on your knees, but you can’t blame me, yer majesty

Let’s take a moment
I need to spoil who you are
I played your game once
You sold me out with no regard
I come so you can know me
I’m here to make you proud
I come to wreck and guide you
I’m here to voice out loud

You know I’m coming for you
Cause I got nothing to lose
And now I’m still on my way for the pay

So you wanted to be free from everything you’ve done to me?
And you wanted to be known so you wouldn’t feel so alone?
And you wanted to believe that you still have integrity?
And I’m sorry you’re on your knees, but you can’t blame me, yer majesty

So you wanted to be free from everything you’ve done to me?
And you wanted to be known so you wouldn’t feel so alone?
And you wanted to believe that you still have integrity?
And I’m sorry you’re on your knees, but you can’t blame me, yer majesty

311- Omaha Stylee

In a minute everything you have can all be straight gone
In a minute things you though were tied can come straight undone
How about some knocks on wood some so far it’s so good any day
What you think is solid earth can jump up and spread out
To the north and south that’s what plates are about
Nature has no conscience no kindness or ill will
The dreams they had make me sad because of the vides of them
When one girl dreamt a fire in hers and then it happened
To me and my family my bro’s and I were driving
The RV bleeding flames us leaping through fire surviving
Zoned with no home there was fire all on it
Umm let me have my life I want it

I’m gonna let you know that I said
We’re coming in kill we’re coming chill
We’ve comin in how we will
Gone to tell the whole world what’s the deal
And I say know no critical boarder cuz
We do what we want
Got more funky styles that my laser jet got font
Not one to get over sounding like the norm
Friendly to the radio all that shit is corn
All we coming with is a little bit of swing
And we go on like it ain’t no thing

Omaha stylee did not think there was one
Where you know the radios weak and the shows are more fun
But you know we fuck up the dance since 1988
Many did not think when they hear that we come from this state

Still we’re down like that [x3]
Makin the funk that smells of skunk

Such occasions occur back in the day
It begins you’re a raw kid all the way
Son of a gun but they you drifted
All are endowed but few are gifted
At the break of dawn behaving like a spy
Lampin in the light the cold world awakens
Deeper is the light to open up the sky
Look into my eyes see the dialatin’
Omaha Stylee is the shit we come with man

Embedded in out souls it breathes out from this band
We always knew that we could
Thank you if you too felt we would

We will arise explore these worlds and find the grass roots
How to crew to do the grinding of the grounds to brew
My dude on the one come off like Teflon
Rock your shit and you will rise on

If you’re a farmer outstanding in your field say
Do as you eill do as you wish follow your bliss say
We travel round the world giving it our best
Like to see the people dancing and bouncing and the rest
The hammer and the chisel and the rule it compass
We forged the sword chariots of war our battle axe
There’s much power in anger but loves a bigger banger
Complete props to my crew this is what we do

Kenny Chesney - There goes my life

All he could think about was I’m too young for this.
Got my whole life ahead.
Hell I’m just a kid myself.
How’m I gonna raise one.

All he could see were his dreams goin’ up in smoke.
So much for ditchin’ this town and hangin’ out on the coast.
Oh well, those plans are long gone.

[Chorus:]
And he said,
There goes my life.
There goes my future, my everything.
Might as well kiss it all good-bye.
There goes my life…

A couple years of up all night and a few thousand diapers later.
That mistake he thought he made covers up the refrigerator.
Oh yeah…he loves that little girl.

Momma’s waiting to tuck her in,
As she fumbles up those stairs.
She smiles back at him dragging that teddy bear.
Sleep tight, blue eyes and bouncin’ curls.

[Chorus:]
He smiles…
There goes my life.
There goes my future, my everything.
I love you, daddy good-night.
There goes my life.

She had that Honda loaded down.
With Abercrombie clothes and 15 pairs of shoes and his American Express.
He checked the oil and slammed the hood, said you’re good to go.
She hugged them both and headed off to the West Coast.

[Chorus:]
And he cried,
There goes my life.
There goes my future, my everything.
I love you.
Baby good-bye.

There goes my life.
There goes my life.
Baby good-bye.

[i][b]Def Leppard - Beyond The Temple Lyrics

Beyond the temple
There lies a tomb with a king from long ago
A traveler from a distant planet
Ten thousand years or so
The legend tells of an agin’ man
Whose city he built alone
Till the pirates of our western world
Tore it down stone by stone

The clouds are gettin’ heavy
As he points unto the sky
But with the guidance of his finger
He let the lightning fly

So don’t turn around, don’t turn around
Lightning don’t strike twice
Don’t turn around, don’t turn around
Death is a very high price

He gathered up his people
And he took them underground
To the caves of silvery water
Where they never could be found

The king came to the surface
Could not believe what he had found
The temple left in ruins
His city knocked to the ground

He went back to his people
Sad news he had to tell
The only justice for the king
Was to put these men in hell

So don’t turn around, don’t turn around
Lightning don’t strike twice
Don’t turn around, don’t turn around
Death is a very high price

His face showing sorrow
His heart full of grief
His life’s work in ruins
Destroyed by a thief

His people just sit around
His children just cry
The king’s mind is all confused
Just wonderin’ why

The temple split in half
And scattered through the desert
The dust had risen in the air
The race of people had to live in devastation
Why wasn’t he even there?

Message from the gods to gather up his people
The kingdom couldn’t lose them there
That’s when all the gods and all are livin’ peaceful
Just a galaxy away

The king rose up from underground
To light the darkened sky
Red lights, green lights, blue lights flashing
It seemed a mile high

As it lifted from the ground
And soared into the air
The king looked at what might have been
A world that needed care

A storm had risen quickly
Across the take of hope
Now there’s no trace of the king
Just a memory carved in stone

So don’t turn around, don’t turn around
Lightning don’t strike twice
Don’t turn around, don’t turn around
Death is a very high price
Don’t turn around, don’t turn around
Lightning don’t strike twice
Don’t turn around, don’t turn around
Death is a very high price

[i][color=indigo]Escape (The Pina Colada Song)
Rupert Holmes

I was tired of my lady
We’d been together too long
Like a worn-out recording
Of a favorite song
So while she lay there sleeping
I read the paper in bed
And in the personal columns
There was this letter I read

“If you like Pina Coladas
And getting caught in the rain
If you’re not into yoga
If you have half a brain
If you’d like making love at midnight
In the dunes on the Cape
Then I’m the love that you’ve looked for
Write to me and escape.”

I didn’t think about my lady
I know that sounds kind of mean
But me and my old lady
Have fallen into the same old dull routine
So I wrote to the paper
Took out a personal ad
And though I’m nobody’s poet
I thought it wasn’t half bad

“Yes I like Pina Coladas
And getting caught in the rain
I’m not much into health food
I am into champagne
I’ve got to meet you by tomorrow noon
And cut through all this red-tape
At a bar called O’Malley’s
Where we’ll plan our escape.”

So I waited with high hopes
And she walked in the place
I knew her smile in an instant
I knew the curve of her face
It was my own lovely lady
And she said, “Oh it’s you.”
Then we laughed for a moment
And I said, “I never knew.”

That you like Pina Coladas
Getting caught in the rain
And the feel of the ocean
And the taste of champagne
If you’d like making love at midnight
In the dunes of the Cape
You’re the lady I’ve looked for
Come with me and escape[/color][/i]

  1. Shameful By Atreyu

You should have ran for days
You embrace you betray
I am sick to say
You’re a sad cliché
But when you ran you tripped and fell
On a path that lead you straight to hell
This is my salt in your wounds
This is my “I TOLD YOU SO”

If You Knew What I Know
Would You Move Like You Do?
With malicious Discontent
You went about hell-bent to destroy
But did you have a reason why?

[Chorus:]
Here’s to lowering caskets
Of old friends
Choice and consequence
We’ll birth a new day
With the death of an old and
Start over, Start over.
Here’s To Burying Hatchets in Those
Who You’d Never Call Your Friend…
We’ll Birth A New Day With The Death Of An Old Day And…
Start Over! Start Over!

Can You Breathe In Reach And Let It Out
Thee Evil Inside that’s eating you out tonight
With Every Venomous Move I Will Suck You Up And Spit You
Get Out Of My Life, Get Out Of My Sight!

[Chorus]

You Let Yourself Get Carried Away
Don’t Act Like Your Ashamed
You Let Yourself Get Carried Away
Bow your head now, accept the blame
You Let Yourself Get Carried Away
Bury this with you, a waste
And Now It’s Time To See
What You Don’t Mean To Me

Now it’s time to see
What you don’t mean to me
Now it’s time to see
What you don’t mean to me

Here’s to lowering caskets
Of old friends
Choice and consequence
We’ll birth a new day
With the death of an old and
Start over, Start over.
Here’s To Burying Hatchets in Those
Who You’d Never Call Your Friend…
We’ll Birth A New Day With The Death Of An Old Day And…

Darren Hayes—Who Would Have Thought:

Nobody told you that a heart is like a deep, deep freeze,
So many lies, so much of it - broken.
And nobody told you deep within a well so cavernous,
That maybe I - could shed some light on…

Who would have thought, it could be amazing?
Who would have thought, the tiny courageous?
Who would have thought, that love so belated,
could save me, and bring me back to you… ohh.

And nobody told you there’d be days of silence that no one heard,
A river swells and overwhelms ya.
And nobody told you deep within a heart so ravenous,
that maybe I, could spare a beat for…

Who would have thought, it could be amazing?
Who would have thought, the tiny courageous?
Who would have thought, that love so belated,
could save me, and bring me back to you.

I had to find you, had to let you know,
that you aren’t alone, (yea.), we didn’t make the the rules,
I had to find you, had to get right back…to you… (ohh..)

(oh ohh)
I had to find you, had to let you know,
that you weren’t alone, (yea, yea) we didn’t make the the rules,
I had to find you, had to get right back to you…
It’s always been you…
now, tell me…

Who would have thought it could be this amazing?
Now, who would have thought the tiny courageous?
Tell me…
Who would have thought that love so belated,
could save me, and bring me back to you..(ohh ohh..)

:smile: I like the new Darren Hayes songs alot :smile:

Unsteady Ground
by CATHERINE FEENY

At night we plant bones
In the dark as you children sleep
You should know by now
There is always something moving
Under your feet

Black water runs deep
Underneath these titanic plates
Where you build your homes
You tie up your safety nets

When these plates meet
It is mountains they make
Yeah when these bones shift
There’s an earthquake

Watch your step
You should keep your head down
You never know what tomorrow will bring around
Hold onto what good fortune you have found
For you are walking on
Unsteady ground

We will drill the earth
And you’ll ride that slick
When it dirties your hands
It’s a dirty trick

But it’s like quicksand you know
To distinguish the top from the undertow
It gets harder
As your eyes and your bellies grow

Watch your step
You should keep your head down
You never know what tomorrow will bring around
Hold onto what good fortune you have found
For you are walking on

You love God
Yes, you love your president
You want them both
But we must keep them separate
The left hand don’t know where the right hand is at yet
The children don’t know yet that we’re bombing Baghdad

Keep your head down
We are walking on
Unsteady ground

Kiss Me- by Sixpence None the Richer

Kiss me out of the bearded barley
Nightly, beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing, swing the spinning step
You wear those shoes and I will wear that dress.

Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon’s sparkling
So kiss me

Kiss me down by the broken tree house
Swing me upon its hanging tire
Bring, bring, bring your flowered hat
We’ll take the trail marked on your father’s map

Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon’s sparkling
So kiss me

Room of Angels- by Akira Yamaoka

You lie silent there before me
your tears they mean nothing to me
the wind howling at the window
the love you never gave
I give to you

Really don’t deserve it
but now there’s nothing you can do
so sleep in your only memory of me
my dearest mother

Here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don’t feel enough for you to cry oh well
here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
goodbye
goodbye

So insignificant
sleeping dormant deep inside of me
are you hiding away lost
under the sewers
maybe flying high in the clouds
perhaps you’re happy without me
so many seeds have been sown in the field
and who could sprout up so blessedly
if I had died
I would have never felt sad at all
you will not hear me say I’m sorry
where is the light
wonder if it’s weeping somewhere

Here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don’t feel enough for you to cry oh well
here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye

Here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don’t feel enough for you to cry oh well
here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye

Here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don’t feel enough for you to cry oh well
here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye

Here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don’t feel enough for you to cry oh well
here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye

These lyrics have been playing in my mind since the weekend. I heard them when I saw Shrek again and then it was also played in ER this week. So if I post them here they might eventually leave me alone :tongue:
[i]
Hallelujah

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, and 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 when you let me know
What’s real and going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And 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
And 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
[/i]

I saw moogle’s post on Hallelujah and got all excited, it’s been in my head too ^^;; But, this is another song I really love right now—another Darren Hayes song ^^;;;;; but ^^;;; My fav. part is:

And I am worthless.
It is futile.
You’re invisible.
I am infantile.

just sounds awesome there. ^^; :smile:

Darren Hayes-Step Into the Light

I have turned away from you,
and I am god-less.
A wasteland of poison;
a hidden fortress.

I have blackened out the stars,
and hidden frequencies.
I have silenced all the waves,
and forbidden secrecies.

Chorus:
Just step into your light.
This dog doesn’t bite - no.
I just want to be your friend,
you know, I’ve never been in love before.
I’ve never been in love before.

-Ohh ohh ohh-

There is nothing of you, now,
No ghost, no, not a trace.
No flower, not a seed nor perfume, in your place.
I have searched amidst a barren plain of emptiness.

And I am worthless.
It is futile.
You’re invisible.
I am infantile.

Chorus:
Step into the light - oh.
This dog doesn’t bite -yo.
Just wanna be your friend,
You know, I’ve never been in love before.
I’ve never been in love before.

-Ohh oh ohh-

I have murdered the divine in me;
set the godness free,
I have squandered it all.
Like less than the sum,
I am parts of a whole;
there is something missing,
There is something I stole
(There is something I stole…)

Why have you forsaken me?
Where do you hide?
I feel the betrayal
simmers, it blisters,
it digs downand burrows,
deeper inside,
the more that I try,
I cannot deny it.

It feels like
It feels like
(I’ve never been…)
It feels like
(I’ve never been in love before…)
I’ve never been in love before.

It feels like
(I’ve never been in love before…)
It feels like
(I’ve never been in love before…)
It feels like
(love…)

Step into the light - oh.
This dog doesn’t bite - no.
Just wanna be your friend,
You know that I’ve never been in love before,
(love before…)

Just a step into the light -oh.
You know that this dog doesn’t bite - no.
Take hold of my hand
You know that I’ve never been in love before,
-Oohhhhhh-

I Don’t Wanna Stop lyrics by Ozzy Osbourne.

I don’t know what they’re talking about
I’m making my own decisions
This thing that I found
Ain’t gonna bring me down
I’m like a junkie without an addiction

Mama don’t cry
I just wanna say hi
Like playing with danger or fear
Everybody’s walking but nobody’s talking
It looks a lot better from here

All my life I’ve been over the top
I don’t know what I’m doing,
All I know is I don’t wanna stop
All fired up, I’m gonna go till I drop
You’re either in or in the way, don’t make me
I don’t wanna stop

Why don’t they ever listen to me?
Is this a one-way conversation?
Nothing they say is gonna set me free
Don’t need to make no reservations

To make me religious for only one god
I don’t need another saviour
Don’t try to change my mind
You know I’m one of a kind
Ain’t gonna change my bad behaviour

All my life I’ve been over the top
I don’t know what I’m doing,
All I know is I don’t wanna stop
All fired up, I’m gonna till I drop
You’re either in or in the way, don’t make me
I don’t wanna stop

All my life I’ve been over the top
I don’t know what I’m doing,
All I know is I don’t wanna stop
All fired up, I’m gonna go till I drop
You’re either in or in the way, don’t make me
I don’t wanna stop

I don’t wanna stop
I don’t wanna stop
I don’t wanna stop
I don’t wanna stop

All my life I’ve been over the top
I don’t know what I’m doing,
All I know is I don’t wanna stop
All fired up, I’m gonna go till I drop
You’re either in or in the way, don’t make me
I don’t wanna stop

All my life I’ve been over the top
I don’t know what I’m doing,
All I know is I don’t wanna stop
All fired up, I’m gonna go till I drop
You’re either in or in the way, don’t make me
I don’t wanna stop

Knights Of Cydonia-- Muse

Come ride with me through the veils of history,
I’ll show you a God falls asleep on the job,
How can we win when fools can be kings?
Don’t waste your time or time will waste you

No-one’s going to take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No-one’s going to take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No-one’s going to take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

Lost to Apathy - Dark Tranquillity

The unsaid tone of weak despair
Fail to resonate
Frayed ends of our binding threads
Will disintegrate

By laws our physique state
Failure to communicate

None too sentient
Hear no, see no works its magic
Against all function

Ongoing choices
The trials will end
Filter the nonsense
And laugh at what’s left
Indecision/non vision
What matters taken away

Look at the shell that is you
Empty, fragile, weak
Soon the battle is over
Lost to Apathy

So overcome with pointless tears
To test pain receptors
Nothing matters ever here
Put up a non reaction

These eyes will never see
Covered up from reality

Look at the shell that is you
Empty, fragile, weak
Soon this battle is over
Lost to Apathy

The unknown world that you deny
No priority
Cannot fail if you never start
How predictable

I want to know
Where did it end?
For madness to start
Always the skeptic
Never be part
Introvertive /non descriptive
It matters not

Look at the shell that is you
Empty, fragile, weak
Soon this battle is over
Lost to Apathy

I’ve found some wonderful lines from a Nightwish song (Ever Dream):

“Your beauty cascaded on me
in this white night fantasy”

The way they’re sung is great too. Poetry.

For some reason i seem to be a fan of Canadian music. Alexisonfire,three days grace and Thousand foot Kruthc are all canadian wierd eh.

sorry i posted so many and sorry if some lyrics are incomplete I couldn’t help putting this many. :shy:

Alexisonfire-Keep It On Wax

[Wade:] I, I guess the only thing cheap to you was your friends
[George:] You can always make new friends
[Wade:] (oh well, oh well)
[George:] But when you sell them out will they be worth as much?
[2x]

[George:] Now this bridge is ashes
It might as well have never been built
It might as well have never been built
and the river that it crossed
Looks like an ocean now
looks like an ocean now

[Wade:] Times change and people change with them
Some people love to play the victim
[Dallas:] Love to play the victim
[Wade:] You threw caution to the wind
Washed away these few last years for nothing
[Dallas:] Was it all for nothing?
[Chris:] Keep it on wax

[George:] You’re not the only one
Who’s had to make sacrifices
We all had to make sacrifices
And time won’t heal shit
When you’ve got your hands in my pockets
When you’ve got your hands

[George:] Kick, Kick, Kick
Scream, Scream, Scream
[Wade:] It don’t change a goddamn thing (It don’t change)
[George:] Kick, Kick, Kick
Scream, Scream, Scream (A goddamn thing)
[2x]

[Wade:] I, I guess, the only thing cheap to you is your friends
I guess, the only thing cheap to you is your friends
I guess, the only thing cheap to you is your friends
I guess, the only thing cheap to you is your friends

[George:] Oh, what a fucking shame
Oh, that you had to mess things up this bad

[Wade:] Times change and people change with them
Some people love to play the victim
[Dallas:] Love to play the victim
[Wade:] You threw caution to the wind
Washed away these few last years for nothing
[Dallas:] Was it all for nothing?

[Wade:] It’s gone, it’s gone
[George:] There’s nothing left
[Chris:] Keep it on wax
[2x]

Linkin Park-Valentine’s Day

My insides all turned to ash, so slow
And blew away as I collapsed, so cold
A black wind took them away, from sight
And held the darkness over day, that night

And the clouds above move closer
Looking so dissatisfied
But the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing
I used to be my own protection, but not now
Cause my path had lost direction, somehow
A black wind took you away, from sight
And held the darkness over day, that night

And the clouds above move closer
Looking so dissatisfied
And the ground below grew colder
As they put you down inside
But the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing

So now you’re gone, and I was wrong
I never knew what it was like, to be alone

On a Valentine’s Day, on a Valentine’s Day
On a Valentine’s Day, on a Valentine’s Day
On a Valentine’s Day, on a Valentine’s Day
(I used to be my own protection, but not now)
On a Valentine’s Day, on a Valentine’s Day
(Cause my mind has lost direction, somehow)
On a Valentine’s Day, on a Valentine’s Day
(I used to be my own protection, but not now)
On a Valentine’s Day, on a Valentine’s Day
(Cause my mind has lost direction, somehow)

Thousand Foot Krutch-Breathe You In

Taking hold, breaking in
The pressures on, need to circulate
Mesmerized and taken in
Moving slow, so it resonates
It’s time to rest, not to sleep away
My thoughts alone, try to complicate
I’ll do my best, to seek you out
And be myself, and not impersonate

[Chorus:]
I tried so hard to not walk away
And when things don’t go my way
I’ll still carry on and on just the same
I’ve always been strong
But can’t make this happen
'Cause I need to breathe, I want to breathe you in
The fear of becoming
I’m so tired of running
'Cause I need to breathe, I want to breath you in
I want to breathe you in

I’m going in, so cover me
Your compass will, help me turn the page
The laughing stock, I’ll never be
Because I won’t let them take me

[Chorus]

Took awhile to see all the love that’s around me
Through the highs and lows there’s a truth that I’ve known
And it’s you

I’ve always been strong
But can’t make this happen
'Cause I need to breathe, I want to breathe you in
The fear of becoming
I’m so tired of running
‘Cause I need to breathe, I want to breathe you in
I want to breathe you in
I want to breathe you in
I want to breathe you in
I want to, I want to
I want to breathe you in
I want to breathe you in
I want to breathe; I want to, I want to
Wanna breathe
I want to breathe you in
I want to breathe you in
I wanna breathe

Three Days Grace-Animal I Have Become
I can’t escape this hell
So many times i’ve tried
But i’m still caged inside
Somebody get me through this nightmare
I can’t control myself

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it’s not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal
(This animal, this animal)

I can’t escape myself
(I can’t escape myself)
So many times i’ve lied
(So many times i’ve lied)
But there’s still rage inside
Somebody get me through this nightmare
I can’t control myself

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it’s not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal I have become
Help me believe it’s not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal

Somebody help me through this nightmare
I can’t control myself
Somebody wake me from this nightmare
I can’t escape this hell

(This animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal)

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it’s not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal I have become
Help me believe it’s not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal
(This animal I have become)

Eagle ABBA

[color=blue]They came flying from far away, now I’m under their spell
I love hearing the stories that they tell
They’ve seen places beyond my land and they’ve found new horizons
They speak strangely but I understand
And I dream Im an eagle
And I dream I can spread my wings

Flying high, high, I’m a bird in the sky
I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please

As all good friends we talk all night, and we fly wing to wing
I have questions and they know everything
Theres no limit to what I feel, we climb higher and higher
Am I dreaming or is it all real?
Is it true I’m an eagle?
Is it true I can spread my wings?

Flying high, high, I’m a bird in the sky (I’m an eagle)
I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly (what a feeling)
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please

And I dream I’m an eagle
And I dream I can spread my wings

Flying high, high, I’m a bird in the sky (I’m an eagle)
I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly (what a feeling)
Over mountains and forests and seas
High, high, I’m a bird in the sky (Im an eagle)
I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly (what a feeling)
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please[/color]

Marillion - Lavender

[color=blue]I was walking in the park dreaming of a spark
When I heard the sprinklers whisper
Shimmer in the haze of summer lawns
Then I heard the children singing
They were running through the rainbows
They were singing a song for you
Well it seemed to be a song for you
The one I wanted to write for you, for you
Lavenders blue, dilly dilly, lavenders green
When I am King, dilly dilly, you will be Queen
A penny for your thoughts my dear
A penny for your thoughts my dear
I.O.U. for your love, IOU for your love

Lavenders green, dilly dilly, lavenders blue
When you love me, dilly dilly, I will love you
A penny for your thoughts my dear
A penny for your thoughts my dear
IOU for your love, IOU for your love

For your love[/color]

This song is just WONDERFULL!
