Song lyrics


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is anywhere on here at all, it probably is...but I thought it would be a cool idea to post song lyrics of songs we are listening to, to help us get by. So comment with lyrics or on someone else's lyrics.

 

Vedera - The Rain

 

Take a walk with me, love

You say you can't get enough

Well you won't till you open your door

And you give some more to me

 

And the silence in your steps

As you tip-toe around the rest

Makes me want to pull you in

And kiss you, my friend, and your silly games

 

And I'm not tired

I could chase you around

And debate you here again and again

So tell me lies if you want to

I can take it, I won't be afraid

'Cause I am the rain

 

The rain is gentle some days

It can clean off the mess that Winter made

The rain can wash all the years of doubt

And the tears that were shed

So just look up please

Shine a little bit of hope to me, oh

Let me know there's a season for all

And a season to call you my love

 

And throw me off with your pride

It's okay, I won't hide here again and again

I'll tell you there's no mistaking

The reason that I'm not afraid

'Cause I am the rain

 

The rain will wash us clean

And I know the rain will wash us clean

And when it does, I'll be right beside you

Holding on, holding on

The rain will wash us clean

And I know the rain will wash us clean

And when it does, I'll be right beside you

Holding on, holding on

I love Regina Spektor's song "How". But I don't listen it anymore because it makes me feel worse haha it's so sad.

 

How can I forget your love?

How can I never see you again?

There’s a time and place

For one more sweet embrace

And is time, ooh

when it all, ooh

Went wrong

I guess you know by now

That we will meet again somehow

 

Oh baby

How can I begin again?

How can I try to love someone new?

Someone who isn’t you

How can our love be true?

When I’m not, ooh

I’m not over you

 

I guess you know by now

That we will meet again somehow

 

Time can come and take away the pain

But I just want my memories to remain

To hear your voice

To see your face

There’s not one moment I’d erase

You are a guest here now

 

So baby

How can I forget your love?

How can I never see you again?

How can I ever know why some stay and others go?

When I don’t, ooh

I don’t want you to go

 

I guess I know by now

That we will meet again somehow

 

Time can come and wash away the pain

But I just want my mind to stay the same

To hear your voice

To see your face

There’s not one moment I’d erase

You are a guest here now

 

So baby

How can I forget your love?

How can I never see you again?

Morning Song by the Lumineers is an awesome one. The last verse is my favorite, and can be either good or bad depending on how you interpret it.

 

Oh oh ah ah hey hey

May you return to love one day

Well I hope and I pray

You get what you gave

Oh oh ah ah hey hey

 

I like to think he's speaking to someone who went through the same thing as him, not for his ex to go through his pain, though that's likely what he means. Still, I pretend

Great thread idea!

 

My ex hated Lionel Richie. I quite liked some of his songs, but I'd never heard "Lady" until a month or so after we'd split. Yep... emotional moment! Good song though...

 

Lady, I'm your knight in shining armor and I love you

You have made me what I am and I'm yours

My love, there's so many ways I want to say I love you

Let me hold you in my arms forever more

 

You have gone and made me such a fool

I'm so lost in your love

And oh, we belong together

Won't you believe in my song?

 

Lady, for so many years I thought I'd never find you

You have come into my life and, made me whole

Forever let me wake to see you each and every morning

Let me hear you whisper softly in my ear

 

In my eyes I see no one else but you

There's no other love like our love

Oh yes, I'll always want you near me

I've waited for you for so long

 

Oh, Lady, your love's the only love I need

And beside me is where I want you to be

'cause,'cos, my love, my love, there's somethin' I want you to know

You're the love of my life, of my life, you're my lady

You're my lady

"What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you?" - the script - breakeven.

 

"I wanted you bad, I'm so through with that" Beyoncé - best thing I never had.

 

There's so many lyrics, I'd be here all day!

Band of horses- "No One's Gonna Love You"

 

It's looking like a limb torn off

Or altogether just taken apart

We're reeling through an endless fall

We are the ever-living ghost of what once was

 

But no one is ever gonna love you more than I do

No one's gonna love you more than I do

 

And anything to make you smile

It is my better side of you to admire

But they should never take so long

Just to be over then back to another one

 

But no one is ever gonna love you more than I do

No one's gonna love you more than I do

 

But someone,

They could have warned you

When things start splitting at the seams and now

The whole thing's tumbling down

Things start splitting at the seams and now

If things start splitting at the seams and now,

It's tumbling down

Hard.

Somebody in this forum actually recommended this song. It really describes how I feel

 

Lights- Face up

It's late and I am tired, wish I could spark a smile

The place is flying high but right now I want to be low

Don't want to move an inch, let alone a million miles

And I don't want to go but I know I gotta go

 

I just want to feel alive

The times you don't wanna wake up

'Cause in your sleep it's never over when you give up

The sun is always gonna rise up

You need to get up, gotta keep your head up

Look at the people all around you

The way you feel is something everybody goes through

Dark out, but you still gotta light up

You need to wake up, gotta keep your face up

 

Seems like the more you grow, the more time you spend alone

Before you know it you end up perfectly on your own

The city's shining bright, but you don't see the light

How come you concentrate on things that don't make you feel right

 

 

I'm looking for more than a little bit

I'm gonna have to find my way through it

Gonna leave a mark, I'm gonna set a spark

I'm coming up off the ground

I won't be looking down

This song, ever since it came out, pretty much has been looped. And in any situation, it makes me feel better.

 

Christina Perri - Human

 

I can hold my breath

I can bite my tongue

I could stay awake for days if thats what you want

be your number one

 

I can fake a smile

I can force a laugh

I can dance and play the part

if thats what you ask

give you all I am

 

I can do it

I can do it

I can do it

 

But I'm only human

And I bleed when I fall down

I'm only human and I crash and I break down

your words in my head

knives in my heart

you build me up and then I fall apart

cause I'm only human

 

I can turn it on

be a good machine

I can hold the weight of worlds if that's what you need

be your everything

 

I can do it

I can do it

I'll get through it

 

But I'm only human

And I bleed when I fall down

I'm only human and I crash and I break down

your words in my head

knives in my heart

you build me up and then I fall apart

cause I'm only human

 

I'm only human

I'm only human

just a little human

 

I can take so much

till I've had enough

 

But I'm only human

And I bleed when I fall down

I'm only human and I crash and I break down

your words in my head

knives in my heart

you build me up and then I fall apart

cause I'm only human

Over the Rainbow (Judy Garland/Wizard of Oz)

 

Somewhere over the rainbow

Way up high

There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby

 

Somewhere over the rainbow

Skies are blue

And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

 

Someday I'll wish upon a star

And wake up where the clouds are far behind me

Where troubles melt like lemon drops

Away above the chimney tops

That's where you'll find me

 

Somewhere over the rainbow

Blue birds fly

Birds fly over the rainbow

Why then oh why can't I?

 

If happy little blue birds fly beyond the rainbow

Why oh why can't I?

You didn't see me I was falling apart

I was a white girl in a crowd of white girls in the park

You didn't see me I was falling apart

I was a television version of a person with a broken heart

You didn't see me I was falling apart

I was a white girl in a crowd of white girls in a park

You didn't see me I was falling apart

I was a television version of a person with a broken heart

 

And everybody was gone

You were standin' in the street

Cause you were trying not to crack up

[?]

Now I only think about los angeles when the sun kicks out

Now I only think about los angeles when the sun kicks out

 

You said it would be painless

The needle in the dark

You said it would be painless

It wasn't that at all

You said it would be painless

The needle in the dark

You said it would be painless

It wasn't that at all (when the sun kicks out)

Amos Lee's "Learned A Lot"

 

Chorus I've learned a lot

I've really learned a lot

Broken down on a bedroom floor

Yes I learned a lot

Really learned a lot

I hope you found what you were looking for

 

Spent a lot of time staring at the ceiling

Spent a lot of time talking to walls

Spent a lot of time chasing that old-time feeling

Spent a lot of time waiting on your call

You Be The Anchor That Keeps My Feet On The Ground, I'll Be The Wings That Keep Your Heart In The Clouds by Mayday Parade (ridiculously long song title, but I love it)

 

And honestly, I have been begging for answers

That you and only you can give to me

A voice crying loud

I've been crying for days now

And as I start to run, I stop to breathe

 

(And I was nearly scared to death)

And I was nearly scared to death

(Of what you left in paragraphs)

Of what you left in paragraphs

(The words were nearly over us)

The words were nearly over us

You stop and turn and grab your bags

 

And I'll be here by the ocean

Just waiting for proof that there's

Sunsets and silhouette dreams

All my sand castles fall

Like the ashes of cigarettes

And every waves drags me to sea

I could stand here for hours

Just to ask God the question

Is everyone here make-believe?

With a tear in His voice

He said, "Son, that's the question."

Does this deafening silence mean nothing

To no one but me?

 

As hours move to minutes

And minutes take longer to break

I will be desperately awaiting

But my tongue won't fall apart

And we've been sitting here for hours

All alone and in the dark

 

So let me think of how to word it

Is it too soon to say "perfect"?

If I could find another thirty minutes somewhere

I'm sure everything would find me

All that's left is just to sing

 

And I'll be here by the ocean

Just waiting for proof that there's

Sunsets and silhouette dreams

All my sand castles fall

Like the ashes of cigarettes

And every waves drags me to sea

I could stand here for hours

Just to ask God the question

Is everyone here make-believe?

With a tear in His voice

He said, "Son, that's the question."

Does this deafening silence mean nothing

To no one but me?

 

And if you sing to me sweet till then

I may never sail Virginia again

And as this current moves slow for me

This much you must know

We'll meet again

And El, I'll have you know I'm scared to death

 

Tell me once again

That you'll love me to the death

And should I die

You swear that you will come for me

As I fade away, you reach out your arms

(And please don't let me go)

And please don't let me go

(And please don't let me go)

And please don't let me go

 

And I'll be here by the ocean

Just waiting for proof that there's

Sunsets and silhouette dreams

All my sand castles fall

Like the ashes of cigarettes

And every waves drags me to sea

I could stand here for hours

Just to ask God the question

Is everyone here make-believe?

With a tear in His voice

He said, "Son, that's the question."

Does this deafening silence mean nothing

To no one but me?

 

I love everything about this song, especially the chorus and the verse in bold. It tells the story of an entire relationship in 5 minutes, from the beginning where everything was perfect to the end of it where he is grieving the loss of his love. I have so many others, but this one is just amazing and you can just feel the emotion when you listen to it.

"Hate To See Your Heart Break" - Paramore

 

There is not a single word in the whole world

That could describe the hurt

The dullest knife just sawing back and forth

And ripping through the softest skin there ever was

 

How were you to know?

Oh, how were you to know?

 

And I, I hate to see your heart break

I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close

But I've been there before

And I, I hate to see your heart break

I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close

But I've been there before

 

Love happens all the time

To people who aren't kind

And heroes who are blind

Expecting perfect scripted movie scenes

Who wants an awkward silent mystery?

 

How were you to know?

Well, how were you to know-oh-oh?

 

And I, I hate to see your heart break

I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close

But I've been there before

And I, I hate to see your heart break

I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close

But I've been there before

 

For all the air that's in your lungs

For all the joy that is to come

For all the things that you're alive to feel

Just let the pain remind you hearts can heal

 

Oh, how were you to know? (How were you to know?)

Oh, how were you to know?

 

And I, I hate to see your heart break

I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close

But I've been there before

And I, I hate to see your heart break

I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close

But I've been there before

"This Is Gospel" - Panic At The Disco

 

This is gospel for the fallen ones

Locked away in permanent slumber

Assembling their philosophies

From pieces of broken memories

 

Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart

Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart

 

Their gnashing teeth and criminal tongues

Conspire against the odds

But they haven't seen the best of us yet

 

If you love me let me go

If you love me let me go

'Cause these words are knives that often leave scars

The fear of falling apart

And truth be told, I never was yours

The fear, the fear of falling apart

 

Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart

Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart

 

This is gospel for the vagabonds

Ne’er-do-wells, and insufferable bastards

Confessing their apostasies

Lead away by imperfect impostors

 

Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart

Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart

 

Don't try to sleep through the end of the world

And bury me alive

'Cause I won't give up without a fight

 

If you love me let me go

If you love me let me go

'Cause these words are knives that often leave scars

The fear of falling apart

And truth be told, I never was yours

The fear, the fear of falling apart

 

Oh, the fear of falling apart

Oh, the fear, the fear of falling apart

 

Oh, (This is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart)

The fear of falling apart

Oh, (This is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart)

The fear of falling apart

Oh, (This is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart)

The fear of falling apart

Oh, (This is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart)

The fear of falling apart

This one pretty much sums up when I just get frustrated with everything.

 

Sick - Adelita's Way

 

I'm so sick of me, being sick of you,

And the way you look, all the things you do,

You drive me crazy, drive me crazy

Sick of being broke, can't pay the rent

I'm about to snap, I can't handle this

I'm doing crazy, doing crazy (going crazy)

 

If you're sick like me

There's no stopping now,

Gotta break it up

And just let it out

If I was sick like you,

I would feed the fire

I would light it up

And watch it all come down

 

I'm so sick of my life

It's the same old trip,

Try to make it bend,

But it never gives

Look what you made me (what you made me)

Well I hate my boss,

He's a little b*tch

If he keeps it up,

I'll make him quit

Or I'll go crazy

I'm going crazy

 

If you're sick like me

There's no stopping now,

Gotta break it up

And just let it out

If I was sick like you,

I would feed the fire

I would light it up

And watch it all come down

(And watch it all come down)

 

I'm so sick of me, being sick of you,

And the way you look, all the things you do,

You drive me crazy, drive me crazy

Yeah!

 

If you're sick like me

There's no stopping now,

Gotta to break it up

And just let it out

If I was sick like you,

I would feed the fire

I would light it up

And watch it all come down

 

(If you're sick like me,

There's no stopping now

There's no stopping now

Watch it all come down

If you're sick like me

Then you're sick like me)

Three Days Grace - Riot

 

If you feel so empty

So used up, so let down

If you feel so angry

So ripped off, so stepped on

You're not the only one

Refusing to back down

You're not the only one

So get up

 

Let's start a riot, a riot

Let's start a riot

Let's start a riot, a riot

Let's start a riot

 

If you feel so filthy

So dirty, so f*cked up

If you feel so walked on

So painful, so p*ssed off

You're not the only one

Refusing to go down

You're not the only one

So get up

 

Let's start a riot, a riot

Let's start a riot

Let's start a riot, a riot

Let's start a riot

 

If you feel so empty

So used up, so let down

If you feel so angry

Just get up

 

Let's start a riot, a riot

Let's start a riot

Let's start a riot, a riot

Incubus - The Warmth

 

I'd like to close my eyes, go numb

But there's a cold wind coming from the top of the highest high rise today

It's not a breeze 'cause it blows hard

Yes, and it wants me to discard

The humanity I know, watched the warmth blow away

 

So don't let the world bring you down, not everyone here is that ed up and cold

Remember why you came and while you're alive, experience the warmth before you grow old

 

So do you think I should adhere to that pressing new frontier

And leave in my wake, a trail of fear

Should I hold my head up high and throw a wrench and spokes by?

I'm leaving the air behind me clear

 

So don't let the world bring you down, not everyone here is that ed up and cold

Remember why you came and while you're alive, experience the warmth before you grow old

 

Where did it go?

Where did it go?

Where did it go?

 

So don't let the world bring you down, not everyone here is that ed up and cold

Remember why you came and while you're alive, experience the warmth before you grow old

Before you grow old

 

Where did it go?

Where did it go?

Where did it go?

Where did it go?

Out ta Get Me

Song by Guns N Roses

Lyrics by noted philosopher Axl Rose

 

Been hidin' out

And layin' low

It's nothing new ta me

Well you can always find a place to go

If you can keep your sanity

They break down the doors

And they rape my rights but

They won't touch me

They scream and yell

And fight all night

You can tell me

I lose my head

I close my eyes

They won't touch me

'Cause I got somethin'

I been buildin' up inside

For so in' long

 

They're out ta get me

They won't catch me

I'm in' innocent

They won't break me

 

Sometimes it's easy to forget where you're goin'

Sometimes it's harder to leave

And everytime you think you know just what you are doin'

That's when your troubles exceed

They push me in a corner

Just to get me to fight but

They won't touch me

They preach and yell

And fight all night

You can't tell me

I lose my head

I close…

The Eagles - Already Gone

 

Well, I heard some people talkin' just the other day

And they said you were gonna put me on a shelf

But let me tell you I got some news for you

And you'll soon find out it's true

And then you'll have to eat your lunch all by yourself

'Cause I'm already gone

And I'm feelin' strong

I will sing this vict'ry song, woo, hoo, hoo, woo, hoo, hoo

 

The letter that you wrote me made me stop and wonder why

But I guess you felt like you had to set things right

Just remember this, my girl, when you look up in the sky

You can see the stars and still not see the light (that's right)

 

And I'm already gone

And I'm feelin' strong

I will sing this vict'ry song, woo, hoo, hoo, woo, hoo, hoo

 

Well I know it wasn't you who held me down

Heaven knows it wasn't you who set me free

So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains

And we never even know we have the key

 

But me, I'm already gone

And I'm feelin' strong

I will sing this vict'ry song

'Cause I'm already gone

Yes, I'm already gone

And I'm feelin' strong

I will sing this vict'ry song

'Cause I'm already gone

Yes, I'm already gone

Already gone

All right, nighty-night

Taylor Swift - All Too Well

 

Oh, your sweet disposition and my wide-eyed gaze.

We're singing in the car, getting lost Upstate.

Autumn leaves falling down like pieces into place,

And I can picture it after all these days.

 

And I know it's long gone,

And that magic's not here no more,

And I might be okay,

But I'm not fine at all.

 

'Cause there we are again on that little town street.

You almost ran the red 'cause you were looking over at me.

Wind in my hair, I was there, I remember it all too well.

 

Photo album on the counter, your cheeks were turning red.

You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin sized bed

And your mother's telling stories about you on a tee ball team

You taught me 'bout your past, thinking your future was me.

 

And I know it's long gone

And there was nothing else I could do

And I forget about you long enough

To forget why I needed to...

 

'Cause there we are again in the middle of the night.

We're dancing around the kitchen in the refrigerator light

Down the stairs, I was there, I remember it all too well, yeah.

 

Well, maybe we got lost in translation, maybe I asked for too much,

But maybe this thing was a masterpiece 'til you tore it all up.

Running scared, I was there, I remember it all too well.

 

Hey, you call me up again just to break me like a promise.

So casually cruel in the name of being honest.

I'm a crumpled up piece of paper lying here

'Cause I remember it all, all, all... too well.

 

Time won't fly, it's like I'm paralyzed by it

I'd like to be my old self again, but I'm still trying to find it

After plaid shirt days and nights when you made me your own

Now you mail back my things and I walk home alone

 

But you keep my old scarf from that very first week

'Cause it reminds you of innocence and it smells like me

You can't get rid of it 'cause you remember it all too well, yeah

 

'Cause there we are again, when I loved you so

Back before you lost the one real thing you've ever known

It was rare, I was there, I remember it all too well

 

Wind in my hair, you were there, you remember it all

Down the stairs, you were there, you remember it all

It was rare, I was there, I remember it all too well

Daughtry - Over You

 

Now that it's all said and done,

I can't believe you were the one

To build me up and tear me down,

Like an old abandoned house.

What you said when you left

Just left me cold and out of breath.

I fell too far, was in way too deep.

Guess I let you get the best of me.

 

Well, I never saw it coming.

I should've started running

A long, long time ago.

And I never thought I'd doubt you,

I'm better off without you

More than you, more than you know.

I'm slowly getting closure.

I guess it's really over.

I'm finally getting better.

And now I'm picking up the pieces.

I'm spending all of these years

Putting my heart back together.

'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,

I got over you.

 

You took a hammer to these walls,

Dragged the memories down the hall,

Packed your bags and walked away.

There was nothing I could say.

And when you slammed the front door shut,

A lot of others opened up,

So did my eyes so I could see

That you never were the best for me.

 

Well, I never saw it coming.

I should've started running

A long, long time ago.

And I never thought I'd doubt you,

I'm better off without you

More than you, more than you know.

I'm slowly getting closure.

I guess it's really over.

I'm finally getting better.

And now I'm picking up the pieces.

I'm spending all of these years

Putting my heart back together.

'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,

I got over you.

 

Well, I never saw it coming.

I should've started running

A long, long time ago.

And I never thought I'd doubt you,

I'm better off without you

More than you, more than you know.

 

Well, I never saw it coming.

I should've started running

A long, long time ago.

And I never thought I'd doubt you,

I'm better off without you

More than you, more than you know.

I'm slowly getting closure.

I guess it's really over.

I'm finally getting better.

And now I'm picking up the pieces.

I'm spending all of these years

Putting my heart back together.

Well I'm putting my heart back together,

'Cause I got over you.

Well I got over you.

I got over you.

'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,

I got over you.

Andy Grammer -Miss Me

 

I wake up and I'm sober don't even know you anymore

Punch drunk on a feeling, lost in believing I was sure

I don't care what you have to say, damn words get in the way

I don't wanna know

I know there'll come a time when I look you in the eyes and say: "I told you so"

 

And I promise you this, you're gonna miss me, miss me

As long as you live you're gonna miss me, miss me

Oh

 

Set me up for the falling, gave me no warning you were gone

Let me down I was reeling, I can't believe what you have done

Go do what you've gotta do, damn words will follow you

Everywhere you go

And I know there'll come a time when I'll look you in the eyes and say: "I told you so"

 

And I promise you this, you're gonna miss me, miss me

As long as you live you're gonna miss me, miss me

Oh

 

I believe in my heart when something's wrong, say it's wrong,

I can deal with the part when something's wrong, if we both stay strong!

I know there'll come a time when I look you in the eyes and say: "I told you so"

 

And I promise you this, you're gonna miss me, miss me

As long as you live you're gonna miss me, miss me

Oh

 

I wake up and I'm sober

"Take It All"

-ADELE-

 

Didn't I give it all,

Tried my best,

Gave you everything I had,

Everything and no less?

Didn't I do it right?

Did I let you down?

 

Maybe you got too used to

Well, having me around.

Still how can you walk away

From all my tears?

It's gonna be an empty road

Without me right here.

 

But go on and take it,

Take it all with you.

Don't look back

At this crumbling fool.

Just take it all

With my love,

Take it all

With my love.

 

Maybe I should leave

To help you see

Nothing is better than this

And this is everything we need.

So is it over?

Is this really it?

You've given up so easily,

I thought you loved me more than this.

 

But go on, go on and take it,

Take it all with you.

Don't look back

At this crumbling fool.

Just take it all

With my love,

Take it all

With my love.

 

I will change if I must.

Slow it down and bring it home, I will adjust.

Oh if only, if only you knew,

Everything I do is for you.

 

But go on

Go on and take it,

Take it all with you.

Don't look back

At this crumbling fool.

Just take it,

Take it all with you.

Don't look back

At this crumbling fool.

Just take it all

With my love,

Take it all

With my love

Take it all

With my love.
