Music Lyrics That Wreck You?


Recommended Posts

Murderer of Blue Skies by Chris Cornell, as it dictates my ex relationship

 

And Pearl Jam's "Black" to name a couple.

 

Love music too and have a catalogue of heartbreakers memorised.

"I know some day you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be the sun in someone else's sky, but why can't it be mine?"

 

Wrecks me every time.

I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing

Just prayin' to a god that I don't believe in

'Cause I got time while she got freedom

'Cause when a heart breaks no it don't break even

 

Her best days will be some of my worst

She finally met a man that's gonna put her first

While I'm wide awake she's no trouble sleeping

'Cause when a heart breaks no it don't break even, even, no

 

What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you,

And what am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up and you're OK

I'm falling to pieces, yeah,

I'm falling to pieces

 

They say bad things happen for a reason

But no wise words gonna stop the bleeding

'Cause she's moved on while I'm still grieving

And when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven even, no

 

What am I gonna to do when the best part of me was always you,

And what am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up and you're OK

I'm falling to pieces, yeah,

I'm falling to pieces, yeah,

I'm falling to pieces

(One still in love while the other ones leaving)

I'm falling to pieces

('Cause when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven)

 

Oh you got his heart and my heart and none of the pain

You took your suitcase, I took the blame

Now I'm try'na make sense of what little remains ooh

'Cause you left me with no love and no love to my name

 

I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing

Just prayed to a god that I don't believe in

'Cause I got time while she got freedom

'Cause when a heart breaks no it don't break

No it don't break

No it don't breakeven no

 

What am I gonna do when the best part of me was always you and

What am I suppose to say when I'm all choked up and you're OK

(Oh glad your okay now)

I'm falling to pieces yeah

I'm falling to pieces yeah

I'm falling to pieces

(One still in love while the other ones leaving)

I'm falling to pieces yeah

('Cause when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven)

 

Oh it don't breakeven no

Oh it don't breakeven no

Oh it don't breakeven no

 

Breakeven - The Script

 

 

 

Once I replace "She" with "He" and reverse the sexes in the lyrics it hits very close to home

This is the song that wrecks me most. It's been 4 years now since I lost my fiance in a car accident. I was in Afghanistan when I got the news. I stayed drunk for a solid month but I finally picked myself back up. I felt like this song was written for me. Now, I'm happy again and in a relationship with the perfect woman. It's hard to imagine finding perfection once much less but twice I am one lucky SOB...

 

Grace is Gone by Dave Matthews

 

 

Neon shines through smokey eyes tonight

It's 2 a.m. I'm drunk again

And it's heavy on my mind

 

I could never love again

So much as I love you

Where you end, where I begin

Is like a river running through

 

Take my eyes, take my heart

I need them no more

If never again I fall upon the one I so adore

 

(Chorus)

Excuse me please, one more drink

Could you make it strong

Cause I don't need to think

She broke my heart

My grace is gone

One more drink and I'll move on

 

One drink to remember

Then another to forget

How could I ever dream to find

Sweet love like you again

One drink to remember

Then another to forget

 

Excuse me please, one more drink

Could you make it strong

Cause I don't need to think

She broke my heart

My grace is gone

One more drink and I'll move on

One more drink and I'll be gone

 

You think of things impossible

Then the sun refuse to shine

I walk with you beside me

Your cold hand lay in mine

 

Excuse me please, one more drink

Could you make it strong

Cause I don't need to think

She broke my heart

My grace is gone

One more drink and I'll go

Excuse me please, one more drink

Could you make it strong

Cause I don't need to think

She broke my heart

My grace is gone

One more drink and I'll move on

One more drink and I'll be gone

One more drink my grace is gone

I'll never hear this song the same way again. Thank you for sharing.

The Smiths are another go to

 

There's a club, if you'd like to go

You could meet somebody who really loves you

So you go and you stand on your own

And you leave on your own

And you go home and you cry

And you want to die

When you say it's gonna happen now

When exactly do you mean?

See I've already waited too long

And all my hope is gone

I love that song, and I love Morrissey. That's one of the saddest songs out there.

I think this is a beautiful song, about two people who love each other very much, but can't make it work:

 

Separate Ways, by Journey

 

Here we stand

Worlds apart

Hearts broken in two

Sleepless nights

Losing ground

I'm reaching for you

 

Feelin' that it's gone

Can't change your mind

If we can't go on

To survive the tide

Love divides

 

Someday love will find you

Break those chains that bind you

One night will remind you

How we touched

And went our separate ways

If he ever hurts you

True love won't desert you

You know I still love you

Though we touched

And went our separate ways

 

Troubled times

Caught between confusions and pain

Distant eyes

Promises we made were in vain

In vain

 

If you must go

I wish you love

You'll never walk alone

Take care my love

Miss you love

 

Someday love will find you

Break those chains that bind you

One night will remind you

How we touched

And went our separate ways

If he ever hurts you

True love won't desert you

You know I still love you

Though we touched

And went our separate ways

 

Someday love will find you

Break those chains that bind you

One night will remind you

If he ever hurts you

True love won't desert you

You know I still love you

 

I still love you, girl

I really love you, girl

And if he ever hurts you

True love won't desert you

this one is very poignant to me lately

 

 

How Not To

 

Dan + Shay

 

I can honestly understand why it's over

I can go through the motions of walking away

I can give you the key and take my things back

I can find plenty things to fill my days

 

But I don't know how not to think about you

When it's late at night and crying

And I know that I ought to be the one who is strong and just moves on

But I probably turn down your road, knock-knock on your door

Fall back in your arms, wake up in the morning

Hating myself for the way that I can't help the way I still want you

I just don't know how not to, how not to, how not to

I just don't know how not to, how not to, how not to

 

You're like second nature, baby, you're just like breathin'

A melody that you hear and you can't forget

The time goes by and I still need you

Yeah, you were at the heartbreak of no regret

 

But I don't know how not to think about you

When it's late at night and crying

And I know that I ought to be the one who is strong and just moves on

But I probably turn down your road, knock-knock on your door

Fall back in your arms, wake up in the morning

Hating myself for the way that I can't help the way I still want you

I just don't know how not to, how not to, how not to

I just don't know how not to, how not to, how not to

 

I don't know how not to think about you

When it's late at night and crying

But I know that I ought to be the one who's strong and just moves on

But I probably turn down your road, knock-knock on your door

Fall back in your arms, wake up in the morning

Hating myself for the way that I can't help the way I still want you

I just don't know how not to, how not to, how not to

I just don't know how not to, how not to, how not to

Another tear-jerker for me:

 

Two out of Three Ain't Bad, by Meatloaf

 

Baby we can talk all night

But that ain't gettin us nowhere

I told you everything I possibly can

There's nothing left inside of me

 

And maybe you can cry all night

But that'll never change the way I feel

The snow is really piling up outside

I wish you wouldn't make me leave here

 

I poured it on and I poured it out

I tried to show you just how much I care

I'm tired of words and I'm too hoarse to shout

But you've been cold to me so long

I'm crying icicles instead of tears

 

And all I can do is keep on telling you

I want you, I need you

But-there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you

Now don't be sad

'Cause two out of three ain't bad

 

You'll never find your gold on a sandy beach

You'll never drill for oil on a city street

I know you're looking for a ruby in a mountain of rocks

But there ain't no Coup de Ville hiding at the bottom

Of a Cracker Jack box

 

I can't lie, I can't tell you

that I'm something I'm not

No matter how I try

I'll never be able to give you something

Something that I just haven't got

 

There's only one girl I'll ever love

And that was so many years ago

And though I know I'll never get her out of my heart

She never loved me back, oh I know

 

I remember how she left me on a stormy night

She kissed me and got out of our bed

And though I pleaded and I begged her not to walk out that door

She packed her bags and turned right away

 

And she kept on telling me

I want you, I need you

But there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you

Now don't be sad

'Cause two out of three ain't bad

 

I want you, I need you

But there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you

Now don't be sad

'Cause two out of three ain't bad

 

Baby we can talk all night

But that ain't getting us nowhere

right now listening to this song in memory of a friend who passed away... she introduced me to JPop.

 

This song breaks me and appropriate way of saying Farewell...

 

 

Ah, the fireworks in the night sky blossom so pretty

Yet they're somewhat painful

Ah, the wind blows in pace with time

I was happy, it was fun

We went on so many adventures inside our secret base

 

I know that you yelled out "Thank you" to me

from the bottom of your heart until the end

Fighting back tears, I said goodbye with a smile

It's painful, isn't it?

Those were the best memories...

 

I was lost amidst the sudden changes

I'll write you letters, I'll call you as well

Please don't forget about me

We will always be inside our secret base

 

The end of summer with you, we talked for so long

While watching the view of the stars from sunset

I'll never forget the tear that flowed onto your cheek

You waved at me so large with your hands for me

and I surely won't forget that

So stay forever like this inside of my dreams

Breaking the Habit by Linkin Park

 

"I don't know what's worth fighting for, or why I have to scream

I don't why I instigate, and say what I don't mean

I don't how I got this way, I know it's not alright

So I'm breaking the habit, tonight"

This song REALLY gets me. Especially if I'm singing along. I think I get a hitch in my voice around the 6th stanza.

 

 

Billy Joel

 

In every heart there is a room

A sanctuary safe and strong

To heal the wounds from lovers past

Until a new one comes along

 

I spoke to you in cautious tones

You answered me with no pretense

And still I feel I said too much

My silence is my self defense

 

And every time I've held a rose

It seems I only felt the thorns

And so it goes, and so it goes

And so will you soon I suppose

 

But if my silence made you leave

Then that would be my worst mistake

So I will share this room with you

And you can have this heart to break

 

And this is why my eyes are closed

It's just as well for all I've seen

And so it goes, and so it goes

And you're the only one who knows

 

So I would choose to be with you

That's if the choice were mine to make

But you can make decisions too

And you can have this heart to break

 

And so it goes, and so it goes

And you're the only one who knows

Wow PP. Dealing with the same issue with my mom. Thank you for that.

 

You're welcome. It's a wonderful song that comforts me on really bad days. My thoughts and prayers for you and your mom.

 

Another current favorite is by Eric Church: Kill A Word

 

If I could kill a word and watch it die

I'd poison "never," shoot goodbye

Beat "regret" when I felt I had the nerve

Yeah, I'd pound "fear" to a pile of sand

Choke "lonely" out with my bare hands

I'd hang "hate" so that it can't be heard

If I could only kill a word

 

I'd take "brokeness" out back

And break "heartbreak," stand there and laugh

Right in its face while shootin' it the bird

I'd put "upset" down in its place

I'd squeeze the life out of "disgrace"

Lay "over" under six cold feet of dirt

If I could only kill a word

If I could only kill a word

 

Give me sticks, give stones

Bend my body, break my bones

Use staff and rod to turn me black and blue

Cause you can't unhear, you can't unsay

But if were up to me to change

I'd turn "lies" and "hate" to "love" and "truth"

If I could only kill a word

 

I'd knock out "temptation"'s teeth

I'd sever "evil," let it bleed

Then light up "wicked," stand and watch it burn

I'd take "vice" and I'd take "vile"

Tie 'em up there with "hostile"

Hang 'em high and leave 'em for the birds

If I could only kill a word

 

So give me sticks, give stones

Bend my body, break my bones

Use staff and rod to turn me black and blue

Cause you can't unhear, you can't unsay

But if were up to me to change

I'd turn "lies" and "hate" to "love" and "truth"

If I could only kill a word

"Simon"

By Lifehouse

 

Catch your breath,

Hit the wall,

Scream out loud,

As you start to crawl

Back in your cage

The only place

Where they will

Leave you alone.

'Cause the weak will

Seek the weaker til they've broken them.

Could you get it back again?

Would it be the same?

Fulfillment to their lack of strength at your expense,

Left you with no defense;

They tore it down.

 

[Chorus

And I have felt the same as you,

I've felt the same as you,

I've felt the same.

 

Locked inside

The only place

Where you feel sheltered,

Where you feel safe.

You lost yourself

In your search to find

Something else to hide behind.

 

The fearful always preyed upon your confidence.

Did they see the consequence,

when they pushed you around?

The arrogant build kingdoms made of the different ones,

Breaking them 'til they've become just another crown.

 

[Chorus]

 

Refuse to feel anything at all,

Refuse to slip,

Refuse to fall.

Can't be weak,

Can't stand still,

You watch your back 'cause no one will.

You don't know why they had to go this far,

Traded your worth for these scars,

For your only company.

And don't believe the lies

That they have told to you. Not one word was true

you're alright, you're alright, you're alright.

I got to see him in concert in April. . Amazing!

 

Instant envy! I adore the man. He also became my personal hero for his active stance against scalpers who try to buy up tickets to his concerts then jack the prices for everyone.

 

Plus he also wrote Mr. Misunderstood, which is another favorite. Carrie Undersood's "Little Toy Guns" I wish more people would remember their bad relationship is having a negative affect on their children.

 

In between the coats in the closet

She held on to that heart shaped locket

Staring at a family flawless

But it ain't a pretty picture tonight

Mom and daddy just won't stop it

Fightin' at the drop of the faucet

Cuts through the walls catastrophic

She's caught in the crossfire

 

Puts her hands over her ears

Starts talking through the tears

She's saying, she's praying.

 

I wish words were like little toy guns

No sting, no hurt no one, just a bang bang

Rolling off your tongue (I wish words were like little toy guns)

Yeah, no smoke, no bullets

No kick from the trigger when you pull it, no pain, no damage done

(I wish words were like little toy guns)

And just a bang bang rolling off your tongue

(I wish words were like little toy guns)

 

Wish there was a white flag waving

Or that they were both just faking

And it was just a game they were playing

Like shoot'em up cowboys

Leave the plastic pistols in the front yard

Throw away the score card

And just turn off all the noise.

 

I wish words were like little toy guns

No sting, no hurt no one, just a bang bang

Rolling off your tongue (I wish words were like little toy guns)

Yeah, no smoke, no bullets

No kick from the trigger when you pull it, no pain, no damage done

(I wish words were like little toy guns)

And just a bang bang rolling off your tongue

(I wish words were like little toy guns)

 

Oh I wish they didn't cut like a knife

I wish they didn't break you inside

I wish they didn't bang bang make you wanna run, yeah

 

Like little toy guns

No sting, no hurt no one, just a bang bang

Rolling off your tongue (I wish words were like little toy guns)

Yeah, no smoke, no bullets

No shot from the trigger when you pull it, no pain, no damage done

(I wish words were like little toy guns)

And just a bang bang rolling off your tongue

(I wish words were like little toy guns)

 

Oh like little toy guns

 

"Concrete Angel" too, but that one is so hard to listen to I end up bawling my eyes out every time. I wish people would pay attention to it though, and its message. Forget about "Alyssa Lies" the first time I heard it I had to pull over to the side of the road and cry while my lion dog licked the tears from my face and tried to comfort me.

 

Those are the lyrics and songs that get to me, really bad.
