and i end this game of cat and mouse with a few words from one of the bands she turned me on to

 

alle the best sweetness - may yer travels take you many wonderful places

 

loved every minute

 

g

 

 

 

Stand up sit down baby

Gonna be a formal dress down hey day

We decide why not go downtown

How about you and me we go get wasted

You'll have, you'll have to excuse me

Please please, please excuse me

You'll have, you'll have to excuse me

This will be my first time

By definition from grade school to English 30

We quietly become strong so early

Take it or leave it

They can't believe it

They go from kindergarten to killing sprees

They go from heartache to inner peace

100 foot ceilings 100 percent deceit

He said let's leave this between you and me

My cats watch my stuff leave my house

Between you and me the cat burglars are

What did you see what did you steal

Tell me baby how does it feel

Yeah how do you feel

It's a top ten list of

Things that move me the most

It's a top ten list of

Things that bother me the most

A top ten list of

Things that scare me the most

I'd have to say that the future

Wasting time in the fast food line

I decide to walk the fine line

And celebrate life celebrate death

I choose to celebrate the first

I celebrate the first

We decide to go out walking

The whole time that we're talking

Convinced that we're living

The whole time that we're dying

We decide to go out walking

The whole time that you're talking

Convinced that you're living

Whole time that I'm dying

Keeps me on my toes

Where did the time go

You keep me on my toes

Where did the time go

On the edge of town where the gravel's thin

They're gonna wear you down

Until you're thin and tired tired tired

Of wasting time in the fast food line

I decide to walk the fine line

And celebrate life celebrate death

I choose to celebrate

The first to come the first to go

The first to say yes the first to say no

I'm gonna seize this moment

The first to come the first to go

The first to say yes the first to say no

We decide to go out walking

The whole time that we're talking

Convinced that we're living

Whole time that we're dying

Keeps me on my toes

Where did the time go, yeah

Keeps me on my toes

Where did the time go

You keep me on my toes

Where did the time go

You keep me on my toes

You keep me on my toes

You keep me on my toes

You went away

Cos you said that you can't stand me

So I went away

I was sure that you can't stand me

Well I don't think we have to be like this forever

Is there more to life than love and being together?

You went away

Cos you said you couldn't love me

And I went away

Cos all I do is love you

Well I don't think we have to be like this forever

There's more to life than love and being together

When my loud guitar comes in

When my thumpin' drums come through

When my loud guitar comes in

When my thumpin' drums come through

My loud guitar comes in

My thumpin' drums come through

Well I don't think we have to be like this forever

There's more to life than love and being together

There's more to life than love and being together

Is there more to life than love and being together?

I went away

There's a war inside of me

Do I cause new heartbreak to write a new broken song

Do I push it down or let it run me right into the ground

I feel like I wouldn't like me if I met me

Well I can't stop talking for fear of listening to unwelcome sound

And you haven't called me in weeks and honestly it's bringing me down

I feel like I wouldn't like me if I met me

I feel like you wouldn't like me if you met me

And don't you worry there's still time

There's nothing to live for when I'm sleeping alone

And I wash the windows outside in hopes that the glare will bring you around

Sunshine is days away I won't be saved I know all the words

I can't say that I'll love you forever

I won't say that I'll love you forever

HEARTS

MARTY BALIN of the group Jefferson Airplane

 

IS EVERYTHING ALRIGHT?I JUST CALLED TO SAY

HOW LOST I FEEL WITHOUT YOU

MILES AWAY I REALLY CAN'T BELIEVE I'M NEAR

AND HOW I STILL CARE ABOUT YOU

 

HEARTS CAN BREAK AND NEVER MEND TOGETHER

LOVE CAN FADE AWAY

HEARTS COULD CRY WHEN LOVE WON'T STAY FOREVER

HEARTS CAN BE THAT WAY

 

IS EVERYTHING THE SAME? DO YOU EVER THINK OF ME

AND HOW WE LOVED ONE ANOTHER

WILL YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND WILL YOU WANDER BACK

AGAIN OR HAVE YOU FOUND YOURSELF A NEW LOVE

 

HEARTS CAN BREAK AND NEVER MEND TOGETHER

LOVE CAN FADE AWAY

HEARTS COULD CRY WHEN LOVE WON'T STAY FOREVER

HEARTS CAN BE THAT WAY

 

IS EVERYTHING OK I JUST THOUGHT I'D WRITE A SONG

TO TELL THE WORLD HOW I MISS YOU

'CAUSE EACH AND EVERY DAY I THINK OF ALL THE WORDS

I NEVER SAID AND ALL THE CHANCES THAT I HAD YOU

 

HEARTS CAN BREAK AND NEVER MEND TOGETHER

LOVE CAN FADE AWAY

HEARTS COULD CRY WHEN LOVE WON'T STAY FOREVER

HEARTS CAN BE THAT WAY

 

HEARTS CAN BE THAT WAY

HEARTS CAN BEEEEE IS EVERYTHING ALRIGHT

Because of you

 

I will not make the same mistakes that you did

I will not let myself

Cause my heart so much misery

I will not break the way you did,

You fell so hard

I've learned the hard way

To never let it get that far

 

Because of you

I never stray too far from the sidewalk

Because of you

I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt

Because of you

I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me

Because of you

I am afraid

 

I lose my way

And it's not too long before you point it out

I cannot cry

Because I know that's weakness in your eyes

I'm forced to fake

A smile, a laugh everyday of my life

My heart can't possibly break

When it wasn't even whole to start with

 

Because of you

I never stray too far from the sidewalk

Because of you

I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt

Because of you

I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me

Because of you

I am afraid

 

I watched you die

I heard you cry every night in your sleep

I was so young

You should have known better than to lean on me

You never thought of anyone else

You just saw your pain

And now I cry in the middle of the night

For the same damn thing

 

Because of you

I never stray too far from the sidewalk

Because of you

I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt

Because of you

I try my hardest just to forget everything

Because of you

I don't know how to let anyone else in

Because of you

I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty

Because of you

I am afraid

 

Because of you

Because of you

Tie! Pitseleh by Elliot Smith:

 

I'll tell you why I don't want to know where you are

I got a joke I been dying to tell you

a silent kid is looking down the barrel

to make the noise that I kept so quiet

I kept it from you, Pitseleh

 

I'm not what's missing from your life now

I could never be the puzzle pieces

they say that God makes problems just to see what you can stand

before you do as the devil pleases

and give up the thing you love

 

but no one deserves it

 

the first time I saw you I knew it would never last

I'm not half what I wish I was

I'm so angry, I don't think it'll ever pass

and I was bad news for you just because I never meant to hurt you

 

Or "All My Little Words" by the Magnetic Fields:

 

You are a splendid butterfly

It is your wings that make you beautiful

and I could make you fly away, but I could never make you stay.

 

You said you were in love with me

Both of us know that that's impossible

And I could make you rue the day, but I could never make you stay.

 

Not for all the tea in China,

not if I could sing like a bird,

not for all North Carolina,

not for all my little words,

not if I could write for you the sweetest song you ever heard.

It doesn't matter what I'll do,

not for all my little words.

 

Now that you've made me want to die, you tell me that you're unboyfriendable

And I could make you pay and pay

but I could never make you stay

 

Not for all the tea in China,

not if I could sing like a bird,

not for all North Carolina,

not for all my little words,

not if I could write for you the sweetest song you ever heard.

It doesn't matter what I'll do,

not for all my little words.

Only one by yellowcard

 

Broken this fragile thing now

And I can't, I can't pick up the pieces

And I've thrown my words all around

But I can't, I can't give you a reason

 

I feel so broken up (so broken up)

And I give up (I give up)

I just want to tell you so you know

 

Here I go, scream my lungs out and try to get to you

You are my only one

I let go, but there's just no one that gets me like you

You are my only, my only one

 

Made my mistakes, let you down

And I can't, I can't hold on for too long

Ran my whole life in the ground

And I can't, I can't get up when you're gone

 

And something's breaking up (breaking up)

I feel like giving up (like giving up)

I won't walk out until you know

 

Here I go, scream my lungs out and try to get to you

You are my only one

I let go, but there's just no one that gets me like you

You are my only my only one

 

Here I go so dishonestly

Leave a note for you my only one

And I know you can see right through me

So let me go and you will find someone

 

Here I go, scream my lungs out and try to get to you

You are my only one

I let go, but there's just no one, no one like you

You are my only, my only one

My only one

My only one

My only one

You are my only, my only one

what goes around comes around by justin timberlake

 

Hey girl, is he everything you wanted in a man

You know I gave you the world

You had me in the palm of your hand

 

So why your love went away

I just can't seem to understand

Thought it was me and you babe

Me and you until the end

But I guess I was wrong

 

Don't want to think about it

Don't want to talk about it

I'm just so sick about it

Can't believe it's ending this way

 

Just so confused about it

Feeling the blues about it

I just can't do without ya

Tell me is this fair?

 

Is this the way it's really going down?

Is this how we say goodbye?

Should've known better when you came around

That you were gonna make me cry

It's breaking my heart to watch you run around

'Cause I know that you're living a lie

That's okay baby 'cause in time you will find...

 

What goes around, goes around, goes around

Comes all the way back around

What goes around, goes around, goes around

Comes all the way back around

What goes around, goes around, goes around

Comes all the way back around

What goes around, goes around, goes around

Comes all the way back around

 

Now girl, I remember everything that you claimed

You said that you were moving on now

And maybe I should do the same

Funny thing about that is

I was ready to give you my name

Thought it was me and you, babe

And now, it's all just a shame

And I guess I was wrong

 

Don't want to think about it

Don't want to talk about it

I'm just so sick about it

Can't believe it's ending this way

Just so confused about it

Feeling the blues about it

I just can't do without ya

Can you tell me is this fair?

 

Is this the way things are going down?

Is this how we say goodbye?

Should've known better when you came around (should've known better that you were gonna make me cry)

What goes around, goes around, goes around

Comes all the way back around

What goes around, goes around, goes around

Comes all the way back around

 

What goes around comes around

Yeah

What goes around comes around

You should know that

What goes around comes around

Yeah

What goes around comes around

You should know that

 

Don't want to think about it (no)

Don't want to talk about it

I'm just so sick about it

Can't believe it's ending this way

Just so confused about it

Feeling the blues about it (yeah)

I just can't do without ya

Tell me is this fair?

[Comes Around interlude

 

Let me paint this picture for you, baby

 

You spend your nights alone

And he never comes home

And every time you call him

All you get's a busy tone

I heard you found out

That he's doing to you

What you did to me

Ain't that the way it goes

 

You cheated girl

My heart bleeds girl

So it goes without saying that you left me feeling hurt

Just a classic case

A scenario

Tale as old as time

Girl you got what you deserved

 

And now you want somebody

To cure the lonely nights

You wish you had somebody

That could come and make it right

 

But girl I ain't somebody with a lot of sympathy

You'll see

 

(What goes around comes back around)

I thought I told ya, hey

(What goes around comes back around)

I thought I told ya, hey

(What goes around comes back around)

I thought I told ya, hey

(What goes around comes back around)

I thought I told ya, hey

 

See?

You should've listened to me, baby

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Because

(What goes around comes back around)

Hello

I've waited here for you

Everlong

Tonight

I throw myself into

And out of the red, out of her head she sang

Come down

And waste away with me

Down with me

Slow how

You wanted it to be

I'm over my head, out of her head she sang

And I wonder

When I sing along with you

If everything could ever feel this real forever

If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you

You've got to promise not to stop when I say when

She sang

Breathe out

So I can breathe you in

Hold you in

And now

I know you've always been

Out of your head, out of my head I sang

And I wonder

When I sing along with you

If everything could ever feel this real forever

If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you

You've got to promise not to stop when I say when

She sang

And I wonder

If everything could ever feel this real forever

If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you

You've got to promise not to stop when I say when

She sang

my ex ... hmmm ... the last weekend we spent together ... several months into the breakup ... i had Sade's Lovers Rock on for the most part

 

pick any song from that CD .. it is the perfect breakup album

 

sample lyrics from various songs in the cd ...

 

I'm crying everyone's tears

And there inside our private war

I died the night before

And all of these remnants of joy and disaster

What am I suppose to do

 

I suppose I could just walk away

Will I disappoint my future if I stay

It's just a day that brings it all about

Just another day and nothing's any good

 

The DJ's playing the same song

I have so much to do

I have to carry on

I wonder will this grief ever be gone

Will it ever go

I'm the king of sorrow, yeah

The king of sorrow

 

I'm crying everyone's tears

I have already paid for all my future sins

There's nothing anyone

Can say to take this away

It's just another day and nothing's any good

 

sob sob sob

 

You treated me like a stranger

And all the time I was loving you

All your slick moves

They were once innocent moves

I wanted to look up to you

I really trusted you

And every word you said

 

and then ...

 

You think I'd leave your side baby?

You know me better than that

Think I'd leave you down

When you're down on your knees?

I wouldn't do that

I'll tell you you're right when you're wrong

Ah, ah, ah, ah, oh, oh, oh

And if only you could see into me

 

n some more ...

 

It's down a rugged road you've come

Though you had every reason

You didn't come undone

Somehow you made it to the other side

You didn't suffer in vain

 

You forgive those who have trespassed against you

And you know tenderness comes from pain

It's amazing how you love

And love is kind and love can give

And love needs no gain

 

 

You didn't suffer in vain

You know it's only love

That gets you through

Only love, it's only love

It's only love that gets you through

u have the attitude that part of someone, in your eyes, is an 'inner wuss' - then how in the world do u expect anything other than what u have already predetermined. man, u are disrespecting someone and projecting your stuff on him. maybe its not him that needs to look in the mirror. if u are harbouring negative thoughts even before the games begin - then that's a setup for failure.

MXPX-never learn

 

Why am I in love with a girl who treats me oh so badly?

Why am I in love with a girl who made me feel so sadly?

I can't get over you. Don't know what I should do.

You leave me feelin' down, then you come back around

Why am I in love with a girl who treats me oh so badly?

Why am I in love with a girl who made me feel so sadly?

I thought I was over you I still don't have a clue

why you came back this way and you got me up today

Why am I in love with a girl who treats me oh so badly?

Why am I in love with a girl who made me feel so sadly?

I guess I never learn I don't wanna learn

Guess I never learn I don't wanna learn

Why am I in love with a girl who treats me oh so badly?

Why am I in love with a girl who made me feel so sadly?

I don't know why

Don't know why

Why?

 

I got other things:

 

I forgot who sang it, but it goes like:

"I'll be waving my hand, watching you drown, watching you scream, no one's around"

 

I know. a little peeved, but hey.I'm hurting.

meant in a positive, supportive way...wink

 

 

If you wake up and don't want to smile,

If it takes just a little while,

Open your eyes and look at the day,

You'll see things in a different way.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,

Don't stop, it'll soon be here,

It'll be, better than before,

Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

Why not think about times to come,

And not about the things that you've done,

If your life was bad to you,

Just think what tomorrow will do.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,

Don't stop, it'll soon be here,

It'll be, better than before,

Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

All I want is to see you smile,

If it takes just a little while,

I know you don't believe that it's true,

I never meant any harm to you.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,

Don't stop, it'll soon be here,

It'll be, better than before,

Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

Don't you look back,

Don't you look back.

Loving you

Isn't the right thing to do

How can I ever change things

That I feel

If I could

Maybe I'd give you my world

How can I

When you won't take it from me

You can go your own way

Go your own way

You an call it

Another lonely day

You can go your own way

Go your own way

Tell me why

Everything turned around

Packing up

Shacking up is all you wanna do

If I could

Baby I'd give you my world

Open up

Everything's waiting for you

You can go your own way

Go your own way

You an call it

Another lonely day

You can go your own way

go your own way

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER

(Tonio K.)

 

the insults and the punches flew

just like they always had

i knocked her down and left the room

but she came running back

and i said:

 

hey look around

hey look in your mirror

lay your ego down

it'll get so much clearer

why continue to push and pull

and punish each other

when it would be so much easier

to just find another lover

 

now you're feelin' cold

hey babe i'm on fire

and i'm losin' control

because you've got no desire

and so we go sparring through the night

like two lightweight contenders

the flames have gone out

let's extinguish the embers

 

put up the flag and lay down your weapon

this perpetual battle royal here

is a long way from heaven

call it a mistake or call it whatever

let's just call it off

better late than never

 

now i've got you

and you've got me

but we've got no manners at all

we're still counting down to ecstasy

when some courtesy's all the situation wants

and that's so hard

 

so you keep the car

and all the passionate letters

they won't get you that far

they won't make it no better

and maybe someday

some other time

we can try this again

maybe someday these flamin' hearts

will learn how to be friends

 

but right now

put up the flag

and lay down your weapon...

hahaha....

 

In high school, I'd sing Alanis Morrisette "you oughtta know" at the top of my lungs when my ex split up with me.

 

Then there was "little past little rock" can't remember the singer, a song about everything in town reminding of him, leaving town to get away.

 

Other times, songs by Jewel like "foolish games."

 

lolol Just thought of another song I played when I knew my daughters dad and I were splitting something like "I never loved you anyway."

I hurt myself today

to see if I still feel

I focus on the pain

the only thing that's real

the needle tears a hole

the old familiar sting

try to kill it all away

but I remember everything

what have I become?

my sweetest friend

everyone I know

goes away in the end

and you could have it all

my empire of dirt

 

I will let you down

I will make you hurt

 

I wear this crown of thorns

upon my liar's chair

full of broken thoughts

I cannot repair

beneath the stains of time

the feelings disappear

you are someone else

I am still right here

 

what have I become?

my sweetest friend

everyone I know

goes away in the end

and you could have it all

my empire of dirt

 

I will let you down

I will make you hurt

 

if I could start again

a million miles away

I would keep myself

I would find a way

And one more (Tonio K Perfect World)

 

in a perfect world it would never end like this

there'd be something we could do

in a perfect world lovers wake up with a kiss

and their wishes all come true

but here we are i thought you belonged to me

it seemed like the perfect arrangement

ain't it funny when you find how wrong you can be

 

oh this ain't no perfect world

i've got my problems

no this ain't no perfect world

you've got your problems too

now what do we do

 

in a perfect world i'd have been the boy you need

i'd have been somebody else

in a perfect world you'd have been the girl for me

you could have been yourself

we're dying for love but we're afraid to drop our guard

we're lost in a world gone crazy

where the men won't grow up and the women get so hard

 

i don't know if we'll wind up friends

i don't know if we'll wind up strangers

cause i've never had to walk away from anybody

i wanted as much as I wanted you
