Your break up- As a song?


Recommended Posts

I was pondering this tonight, only after going to a local concert, and just realizing how powerful music is to some people. Music can pull emotions out of someone with just the right melody and the right lyrics...

 

Then it got me.. Most people I know during/after a break up, want to be alone, they want to reflect. They go through the different stages of moving on, the pain, the hurt, the grief, the anger, the resentment.. ect, ect..

 

Each person might have that "one" song.. or "one" CD that just made you feel like everything you just heard sung WAS about you..

 

 

What was it? What makes this song give you chill bumps, or makes your stomach settle, and a slight smile on your face.

 

For me? It came out shortly after my break up, but I latched on to it.. I listened to it going to bed, when I woke up... On the cold foggy mornings going to work, I'd quietly shed a tear in the car- with this playing... It put everything in perspective for me.

 

Nickleback - Far Away

LISTEN link removed

 

Too long, Too late

Who was I to make you wait

Just one chance

Just one breath

Just in case there's just one left

'Cause you know,

you know, you know

 

[CHORUS]

That I love you

I have loved you all along

And I miss you

Been far away for far too long

I keep dreaming you'll be with me

and you'll never go

Stop breathing if

I don't see you anymore

 

One my knees, I'll ask

Last chance for one last dance

'Cause with you, I'd withstand

All of hell to hold your hand

I'd give it all

I'd give for us

Give anything but I won't give up

'Cause you know,

you know, you know

 

[CHORUS]

 

So far away

Been far away for far too long

So far away

Been far away for far too long

But you know, you know, you know

 

I wanted

I wanted you to stay

'Cause I needed

I need to hear you say

That I love you

I have loved you all along

And I forgive you

For being away for far too long

So keep breathing

'Cause I'm not leaving

Hold on to me and, never let me go

My ex and I had a hellish break up. We were together for 3 years we had a date set and everything. When we broke up my uncle was dying. She went to see him in the hospital, and then went to see her friends with out stopping by to see me. (I was 7 min down the road) b/c she didnt think I needed her to stop by. It was really crappy, esp b/c she knew we were close, & b/c I had lost my dad just a few years prior. Needless to say it was a super rough time. The song that got me through was Josh Groban's Never Let Go. I still get choked up thinking about it and it was a year ago. If you havent heard it, you should take a listen. I am a spiritual person and I imagined it was God telling me Never Let Go and that made it all the more powerful.

 

Take care,

L~

For me it was Hate Me by Blue October which came out at about the time I was blaming myself for the breakup so it seemed kind of appropriate. I basically used to burst into tears everytime I heard it on the radio. For some bizarre reason it seems everytime I go to my ex's house its playing on her stereo

 

 

I have to block out thoughts of you so I don't lose my head

They crawl in like a cockroach leaving babies in my bed

Dropping little reels of tape to remind me that I'm alone

Playing movies in my head that make a porno feel like home

There's a burning in my pride, a nervous bleeding in my brain

An ounce of peace is all I want for you. will you never call again?

And will you never say that you love me just to put it in my face?

And will you never try to reach me? it is I that wanted space

 

Hate me today

Hate me tomorrow

Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you

 

Hate me in ways

Yeah ways hard to swallow

Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you

 

I'm sober now for 3 whole months it's one accomplishment that you helped me with

The one thing that always tore us apart is the one thing I won't touch again

In my sick way I want to thank you for holding my head up late at night

While I was busy waging wars on myself, you were trying to stop the fight

You never doubted my warped opinions on things like suicidal hate

You made me compliment myself when it was way too hard to take

So I'll drive so * * * *ing far away that I never cross your mind

And do whatever it takes in your heart to leave me behind

 

Hate me today

Hate me tomorrow

Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you

 

Hate me in ways

Yeah ways hard to swallow

Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you

 

And with a sad heart I say bye to you and wave

Kicking shadows on the street for every mistake that I had made

And like a baby boy I never was a man

Until I saw your blue eyes cry and I held your face in my hand

And then I fell down yelling "Make it go away!"

Just make a smile come back and shine just like it used to be

And then she whispered "How can you do this to me?"

 

Hate me today

Hate me tomorrow

Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you

 

Hate me in ways

Yeah ways hard to swallow

Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you

For you

For you

For you

Evanescence - The Fallen CD spoke to me... the whole CD.. lol.. But the 1st song on there was gripping..

 

"Going Under"

 

Now I will tell you what I've done for you

50 thousand tears I've cried

Screaming Deceiving and Bleeding for you

And you still won't hear me

(I'm going under)

Don't want your hand this time I'll save myself

Maybe I'll wake up for once

Not tormented daily defeated by you

Just when I thought I'd reached the bottom

I'm dying again

 

I'm going under

Drowning in you

I'm falling forever

I've got to break through

I'm going under

 

Blurring and Stirring the truth and the lies

So I don't know what's real and what's not

Always confusing the thoughts in my head

So I can't trust myself anymore

I'm dying again

 

I'm going under

Drowing in you

I'm falling forever

I've got to break through

 

So go on and scream

Scream at me I'm so far away

I won't be broken again

I've got to breathe I can't keep going under

That is a good song, I just never could listen to the rest of the CD, just didn't grab my ears.

 

As for me and the music I used to be angry and get over things.. This song used to just REEK of my ex after the break up.

 

So They Say - Drink of Poison

 

Dressed to kill this thrill will be the end

Save your side of the story

It's just so annoying

There's pictures in my head I can't give back

 

'Cause you had to be the life of the party

And will you not know what to say

To the boy who gets your heart someday

And you're used body

 

[Chorus]

With this drink of poison

You'll choke (but my bleeding heart will ruin it all!)

'cause I know history will repeat itself

 

O.K you got me now I must confess

This humbling experience has broughten me bliss

So many things are just best left unsaid

'Cause you're such a liar, You're such a good liar

 

And will you not know what to say

To the boy who gets your heart someday

And you're used body

Another one I thought you guys might like to check out- I cried, and still sometimes get choked a little when my itunes shuffles to this.

 

SPILL CANVAS

"Bound To Happen"

 

I used to know you like the back of my hand

Until today you held your place

Now you're shifting like the sand

Your chest would heave with pride if I were spoken of

'Till tonight I never knew the difference between comfort and love

 

Although you're sleeping right next to me

Well, it feels like you are wide awake in a distant dream

leading a life that is finally free

of these endless nights and countless fights that turn us into

who we hate to be

 

This is so difficult for the both of us

I know we tried so hard, there's just no hope for us

Well it's more than a shame that we lost to this game

All my walking, talking, sleeping, breathing -

nothing will ever be the same

 

I used to hold you like it's all that I had

Now begins the falling out, we are like a passing fad

Your mouth would crack a smile if I were spoken of

'Till tonight you never thought

you'd lose this epic battle with love

 

Although you're sleeping right next to me

Well, it feels like you are wide awake in a distant dream

leading a life that is finally free

of these endless nights and countless fights that turn us into

who we hate to be

 

And this is so difficult for the both of us

I know we tried so hard, there's just no hope for us

Well it's more than a shame that we lost to this game

All my walking, talking, sleeping, breathing -

nothing will ever be the same

 

For what it's worth, I've always admired you

I always thought that we could make it through

Now look what time can do

It took our masterpiece we built and broke it in two

I always believed in you

I always loved you

 

And this is so difficult for the both of us

I know we tried so hard, there's just no hope for us

Well it's more than a shame that we lost to this game

All my walking, talking, sleeping, breathing -

nothing will ever be the same

Hi. I remember founding so many breaking up songs while I was going through rough patch but I can't recall most of them now that I'm back to normal. Anyway, I truly believe that music is amazing cure and it can actually help get over a break up.

One that I used to like a lot was Lionel Richie's 'Stuck On You'

It's not a classical song you listen after breaking up but I love(d) it. Bittersweet.

Oh, and Pink Floyd's 'Comfortably Numb'. I really did feel like this for a while.

 

Good luck

It is a tie for me, I listen to these over and over and over

 

Linkin Park

 

"Somewhere I Belong"

 

(When this began)

I had nothing to say

And I get lost in the nothingness inside of me

(I was confused)

And I let it all out to find

That I'm not the only person with these things in mind

(Inside of me)

But all the vacancy the words revealed

Is the only real thing that I've got left to feel

(Nothing to lose)

Just stuck/ hollow and alone

And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own

 

[Chorus]

I wanna heal, I wanna feel what I thought was never real

I wanna let go of the pain I've held so long

(Erase all the pain till it's gone)

I wanna heal, I wanna feel like I'm close to something real

I wanna find something I've wanted all along

Somewhere I belong

 

And I've got nothing to say

I can't believe I didn't fall right down on my face

(I was confused)

Looking everywhere only to find

That it's not the way I had imagined it all in my mind

(So what am I)

What do I have but negativity

'Cause I can't justify the way, everyone is looking at me

(Nothing to lose)

Nothing to gain/ hollow and alone

And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own

 

[Repeat Chorus]

 

I will never know myself until I do this on my own

And I will never feel anything else, until my wounds are healed

I will never be anything till I break away from me

I will break away, I'll find myself today

 

[Repeat Chorus]

 

I wanna heal, I wanna feel like I'm somewhere I belong

I wanna heal, I wanna feel like I'm somewhere I belong

Somewhere I belong

"The District Sleeps Alone Tonight"

 

Smeared black ink... your palms are sweaty

And I'm barely listening to last demands

I'm staring at the asphalt wondering what's buried underneath

Where I am

Where I am

 

I'll wear my badge... a vinyl sticker with big block letters adherent to my chest

That tells your new friends I am a visitor here...

I am not permanent

And the only thing keeping me dry is

Where I am

Where I am

Where I am

 

You seem so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex

A stranger with your door key explaining that I am just visiting

And I am finally seeing

Why I was the one worth leaving

Why I was the one worth leaving

 

D.C. sleeps alone tonight

 

Where I am

Where I am

Where I am

 

You seem so so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex

A stranger with your door key explaining that I am just visiting

And I am finally seing

Why I was the one worth leaving

Why I was the one worth leaving

 

Where I am

Where I am

Where I am

 

The district sleeps alone tonight after the bars turn out their lights

And send the autos swerving into the loneliest evening

And I am finally seeing

Why I was the one worth leaving

Why I was the one worth leaving

Why I was the one worth leaving

Why I was the one worth leaving

A little dated.. but a classic none the less.....

 

 

Gloria Gaynor

 

First I was afraid

I was petrified

Kept thinking I could never live

without you by my side

But I spent so many nights

thinking how you did me wrong

I grew strong

I learned how to carry on

and so you're back

from outer space

I just walked in to find you here

with that sad look upon your face

I should have changed my stupid lock

I should have made you leave your key

If I had known for just one second

you'd be back to bother me

 

Go on now go walk out the door

just turn around now

'cause you're not welcome anymore

weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye

you think I'd crumble

you think I'd lay down and die

Oh no, not I

I will survive

as long as i know how to love

I know I will stay alive

I've got all my life to live

I've got all my love to give

and I'll survive

I will survive

 

It took all the strength I had

not to fall apart

kept trying hard to mend

the pieces of my broken heart

and I spent oh so many nights

just feeling sorry for myself

I used to cry

Now I hold my head up high

and you see me

somebody new

I'm not that chained up little person

still in love with you

and so you felt like dropping in

and just expect me to be free

now I'm saving all my loving

for someone who's loving me

It's been over a month since the break up, and I didn't listen to music for the first month. Had no desire to, I enjoyed much of the same music she did so it was too painful.

 

However, I've been listening to this band I just found out about and I really love it. Here 3 of the songs by Lacuna Coil:

 

ENTWINED

 

And you take me over

Over again

 

I wonder how can I go on and on

when you want to bury my passion

You are the shell around

And I cannot escape

and I swallow my pride

 

Entwined together now

It's time to pass it over

(and you take me over, over again)

Entwined together now

 

And you take me over

Over again

 

I wonder

how can I live on and on

when you want to live in a hurry

You are the wall

-that I-

That I have to remove

And I swallow

I swallow my pride

 

Entwined together now

It's time to pass it over

Entwined together now

Entwined forever

 

And you take me over

Over again

 

Entwined together

Entwined forever

 

 

THE GHOST WOMAN AND THE HUNTER

 

Staring at the sun

no rays down on me

I call you in my arms

embrace is unreal

 

You're moving on

we'll never be apart

just drain my tears

I cry aloud

 

You're moving on

you'll never be a part

of all my tears

I cry aloud

 

Calling on your sins

you're here in my dreams

a desert place

I'm not alone

 

Do you really

want to be me?

 

You're moving on

we'll never be apart

just drain my tears

I cry aloud

 

You're moving on

you'll never be a part

of all my tears

I cry aloud

 

COLD

 

Skin so cold

I knew you'd go away

and now I put you down to lay

nothing to feel for you

this was our last dance

 

Closer and closer, it's time to surrender

to the desire that you cannot mention

don't try to breathe

don't try to run away

 

But I'm reaching for the sky (going to fly)

won't you please stay

 

With a smile I watch you go

you'll never know I didn't cry

with a smile I saw you die

you'll never know I didn't cry

 

No more fear

they said you were so weak

and now I put you down to lay

nothing to feel for you

this was our last chance

 

 

Those 3 songs are AMAZING for me.

"Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word" -- too many artists to name

 

What I got to do to make you love me?

What I got to do to make you care?

What do I do when lightning strikes me?

And I wake to find that youre not there?

 

What I got to go to make you want me?

What I got to do to be heard?

What do I say when its all over?

Sorry seems to be the hardest word.

 

Its sad, so sad

Its a sad, sad situation.

And its getting more and more absurd.

Its sad, so sad

Why cant we talk it over?

Oh it seems to me

That sorry seems to be the hardest word.

Song: Probably Wouldn't Be This Way

LeAnn Rimes

 

Lyrics :

 

Got a date a week from Friday with the Preacher's son,

Everybody says he's crazy, I'll have to see

I finally moved to Jackson when the summer came,

I won't have to pay that boy to rake my leaves

I'm probably going on and on it seems I'm doing more of that these days

 

(Chorus

I probably wouldn't be this way

I probably wouldn't hurt so bad

I never pictured every minute without you in it,

Oh you left so fast,

Sometimes I see you standing there

Sometimes it's like I'm losing touch

Sometimes I feel I'm so lucky to have had the chance to love this much

God give me moments grace

Cause if I'd never seen your face

I probably wouldn't be this way

 

Momma says that I just shouldn't speak to you,

Susan says that I should just move on,

You oughta see the way these people look at me,

When they see me 'round here talking to this stone,

Everybody thinks I've lost my mind but I just take it day by day

 

(Chorus

I probably wouldn't be this way

I probably wouldn't hurt so bad

I never pictured every minute without you in it,

Oh you left so fast,

Sometimes I see you standing there

Sometimes it's like I'm losing touch

Sometimes I feel I'm so lucky to have had the chance to love this much

God give me moments grace

Cause if I'd nevber seen your face

I probably wouldn't be this way

 

I probably wouldn't be this way,

I probably wouldn't hurt so bad,

I never pictured every minute without you in it,

Oh you left so fast,

Sometimes I see you standing there,

Sometimes I feel an angels touch

Sometimes I feel that I'm so lucky to have had the chance to love this much

God give me a moments grace

Cause if I'd never see your face

I probably woudln't be this way

I probably wouldn't be this way

 

Got a date a week from a Friday with the Preacher's son,

Everybody says I'm crazy, guess I'll have to see

i'll always have a soft spot for Wynona's Big Brown Beaver.

 

Wynona's got herself a big brown beaver

and she shows it off to all her friends.

One day, you know, that beaver tried to leave her,

So she caged him up with cyclone fence.

Along came Lou with the old baboon

And said "Recognize that smell?"

"Smells like seven layers,

That beaver eats Taco Bell."

Now Rex he was a Texan out of New Orleans

And he travelled with the carnival shows.

He ran bumper cars, sucked cheap cigars

And he candied up his nose.

He got wind of the big brown beaver

So he though he'd take himself a peek,

But the beaver was quick

And grabbed him by the kiwis.

Now he ain't pissed for a week.

(And a half!)

Now Wynona took her big brown beaver,

And she stuck him up in the air.

Said "I sure do love this big brown beaver

And I wish I did have a pair."

Now the beaver onces slept for seven days

And it gave us all an awful fright.

So I tickled his chin and I gave him a pinch

And the bastard tried to bite me.

Wynona loved her big brown beaver

And she stroked him all the time.

She pr!cked her finger one day and it

Occurred to her she might have a porcupine.

 

by the way, not to poop anyone's pity party but half of the songs you hear on the radio are crafted specifically to have mass commercial appeal among the people who never fail to buy CDs: those who are going through or have gone through a painful breakup. you're a capitalist tool and you didn't even know it.

 

trust me on this: do NOT wallow in sad music when you're depressed!!

THREE DAYS GRACE: Gone Forever

 

Don't know what's going on

Don't know what went wrong

Feels like a hundred years I

Still can't believe you're gone

So I'll stay up all night

With these bloodshot eyes

While these walls surround me with the story of our life

 

I feel so much better

Now that you're gone forever

I tell myself that I don't miss you at all

I'm not lying, denying that I feel so much better now

That you're gone forever

 

Now things are coming clear

And I don't need you here

And in this world around me

I'm glad you disappeared

So I'll stay out all night

Get drunk and * * * * and fight

Until the morning comes I'll

Forget about our life

 

I feel so much berter

Now that you're gone forever

I tell myself that I don't miss you at all

I'm not lying, denying that I feel so much better now

That you're gone forever

 

First time you screamed at me

I should have made you leave

I should have known it could be so much better

I hope you're missing me

I hope I've made you see

That I'm gone forever

 

And now it's coming clear

That I don't need you here

And in this world around me

I'm glad you disappeared

 

I feel so much better

Now that you're gone forever

I tell myself that I don't miss you at all

I'm not lying, denying that I feel so much better now

That you're gone forever

And now you're gone forever

And now you're gone forever

"Had a bad day" was playing when I was driving, tears pouring down my cheeks, on the way to my lawyers office, when I filed for divorce. The initial weeks were horrific, but thankfully with the support of my 19 year old daughter, I made it through the grey clouds.... watch the video clip..

 

 

THANK -YOU....I love that song.....

Letting go

It's all I was built for

Letting go

 

Sowing seeds

Goodbye to all of these things

Goodbye to all of these things

 

I was standing outside in the firelight

Of an old and dusty space at night

I could never have guessed that what came to be

Would come to pass between…

 

You and me

Sometimes things can't always be

Sometimes things can't always be

 

Letting go

It's all I was built for

Letting go

Always On Your Side - Sheryl Crow & Sting

 

My yesterdays are all boxed up and neatly put away

But every now and then you come to mind

Cause you were always waiting to be picked to play the game

But when your name was called, you found a place to hide

When you knew that I was always on your side

 

Well everything was easy then, so sweet and innocent

My demons and my angels reappeared

Leavin' only traces of the man you thought I'd be

Too afraid to hear the words I always feared

Leavin' me so many questions all these years

 

Is there someplace far away, someplace where all is clear

Easy to start over with the ones you hold so dear

Or are you left to wonder, all alone, eternally

This isn't how it's really meant to be

No, it isn't how it's really meant to be

 

Well they say that love is in the air, but never is it clear,

How to pull it close and make it stay

Butterflies are free to fly, and so they fly away

And I'm left to carry on and wonder why

Even through it all, I'm always on your side

 

Is there someplace far away, someplace where all is clear

Easy to start over with the ones you hold so dear

Or are we left to wander, all alone, eternally

Is this how its really meant to be

Oh is this its really meant to be

 

Well if they say that love is in the air, never is it clear

How to pull it close and make it stay

If butterflies are free to fly, why do they fly away

Leavin' me to carry on and wonder why

Was it you that kept me wondering through this life

When you know that I was always on your side

Unfortunately I found as you progress through the breakup, each stage sets a certain mood for (at least me) relating to a song. So as time goes on the song changes...Currently for me the song would be:

 

Hinder - Better Than Me

 

I think you can do much better than me

After all the lies that I made you believe

Guilt kicks in and I start to see

The edge of the bed

Where your nightgown used to be

I told myself I won't miss you

But I remembered

What it feels like beside you

I really miss your hair in my face

And the way your innocence tastes

And I think you should know this

You deserve much better than me

 

While looking through your old box of notes

I found those pictures I took

That you were looking for

If there's one memory I don't want to lose

That time at the mall

You and me in the dressing room

I told myself I won't miss you

But I remembered

What it feels like beside you

I really miss your hair in my face

And the way your innocence tastes

And I think you should know this

You deserve much better than me

 

The bed I'm lying in is getting colder

Wish I never would've said it's over

And I can't pretend that I won't think about you when I'm older

Cause we never really had our closure

This can't be the end

I really miss your hair in my face

And the way your innocence tastes

And I think you should know this

You deserve much better than me

I really miss your hair in my face

And the way your innocence tastes

And I think you should know this

You deserve much better than me

(And I think you should know this)

(You deserve much better than me)

Song: Probably Wouldn't Be This Way

LeAnn Rimes

 

I forgot about that one. yes i did listen to that a lot on the radio. I should have posted these earlier. These are the lyrics to Josh Groban's Never Let Go. As I said before I am pretty spirtiual so I imagined it was God saying to me to never let go on love. That I would mend, and I would find love again. It is an amazing song, and I would love to hear what you all think. He also did a song called Broken Vow, but I couldnt listen to that for a LONG time. I will post those lyrics too.

 

LeAnn~

 

 

Josh Groban - Never Let Go Lyrics

(feat. Deep Forest)

I can't understand it.

The search for an answer is met with a darker day.

And we've been handed these moments forever.

But I'm reassured there's another way.

You don't have to close your eyes.

There is room for love again.

Ease the pain to realize

All that love can be.

Forced apart by time and sand.

Take a step and take my hand.

And don't let it go.

Never let go.

 

Broken, once connected,

We were so strong and so blessed in a simple way.

So don't let me go it alone.

Turn your head up to the sky.

Nothing down below but me.

Face the truth to realize

All that we could be.

Torn apart by rage and fear.

Hold onto what brought you here.

Don't let it go.

Never let go.

 

Turn your head up to the sky.

Nothing down below.

Don't let go.

 

 

Josh Groban - Broken Vow Lyrics

Tell me his name

I want to know

The way he looks

And where you go

I need to see his face

I need to understand

Why you and I came to an end

 

Tell me again

I want to hear

Who broke my faith in all these years

Who lays with you at night

When I'm here all alone

Remembering when I was your own

 

I let you go

I let you fly

Why do I keep on asking why

I let you go

Now that I found

A way to keep somehow

More than a broken vow

 

Tell me the words I never said

Show me the tears you never shed

Give me the touch

That one you promised to be mine

Or has it vanished for all time

 

[Chorus]

 

I close my eyes

And dream of you and I

And then I realize

There's more to love than only bitterness and lies

I close my eyes

 

I'd give away my soul

To hold you once again

And never let this promise end

 

[Chorus]

Another one (there are a few but this one also meant something to me)

 

If Your Gone - Matchbox 20

 

I think I've already lost you

I think you're already gone

I think I'm finally scared now

You think I'm weak

But I think you're wrong

I think you're already leaving

Feels like your hand is on the door

I thought this place was an empire

But now I'm relaxed

I can't be sure

 

I think you're so mean

I think we should try

I think I could need

This in my life

And I think I'm just scared

I think too much

I know this is wrong it's a problem I'm dealing

 

If you're gone maybe it's time to come home

There's an awful lot of breathing room

But I can hardly move

If you're gone baby you need to come home

'Cuz there's a little bit of something me

In everything you

 

I bet you're hard to get over

I bet the room just won't shine

I bet my hands I can stay here

I bet you need more than you mind

 

I think you're so mean

I think we should try

I think I could need

This in my life

I think I'm just scared

That I know too much

I can't relate and that's a problem

I'm feeling

 

If you're gone maybe it's time to come home

There's an awful lot of breathing room

But I can hardly move

If you're gone baby you need to come home

'Cuz there's a little bit of something me

In everything you

 

I think you're so mean

I think we should try

I think I could need

This in my life

And I think I'm just scared

I think too much

I know this is wrong it's a problem I'm dealing

 

If you're gone maybe it's time to come home

There's an awful lot of breathing room

But I can hardly move

If you're gone baby you need to come home

'Cuz there's a little bit of something me

In everything you

My recent break-up as a song:

 

Slow Dancing in a Burning Room - John Mayer

It's not a silly little moment

It's not the storm before the calm

This is the deep and dyin breath of

This love we've been workin on

 

Can't seem to hold you like I want to

So I can feel you in my arms

Nobody's gonna come and save you

We pulled too many false alarms

 

We're goin down

And you can see it too

We're goin down

And you know that we're doomed

My dear

We're slow dancing in a burnin room

 

I was the one you always dreamed of

You were the one I tried to draw

How dare you say it's nothing to me

Baby, you're the only light I ever saw

 

I'll make the most of all the sadness

You'll be a * * * * * because you can

You try to hit me just hurt me

So you leave me feeling dirty

Because you can't understand

 

We're goin down

And you can see it too

We're goin down

And you know that we're doomed

My dear

We're slow dancing in a burnin room

 

Go cry about it why don't you

Go cry about it why don't you

Go cry about it why don't you

My dear, we're slow dancin' in a burnin' room,

Burninl room, burnin' room

Don't you think we oughta know by now

Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow

Don't you think we oughta know by now

Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow

Don't you think we oughta know by now

Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow

Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow

Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow

Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow

Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow

Matchbox 20

Bright Lights

 

She got outta town

on a railway New York bound

Took all except my name

another alien on broadway

Well some things in this world you just can't change

some things you can't see until it gets too late

 

(Chorus)

And baby baby baby when all your love is gone

who will save me from all I'm up against out in this world

and maybe maybe maybe you'll find something thats enough to keep you

but if the bright lights dont receive

you should turn yourself around and come on home

 

Well I got a hole in me now

yeah I got a scar I can talk about

She keeps a picture of me

in her apartment in the city

but some things in this world man they don't make sense

some things you don't need until they leave you

then they're things that you miss

 

(repeat chorus)

 

Let that city take you in

Let that city spit you out

Let that city take you down

FOR GOD'S SAKE TURN AROUND

 

(REPEAT CHORUS)

 

Turn yourself around and come on home

hey come on home

yeah come on home

baby baby baby come on home

This song has helped me through my breakup and 11 months on NC ...

 

Crossfade - Already Gone

 

I will not leave a letter, nothing at all

I'm sure you won't notice that I'm even gone

I won't break this silence we've shared for so long

I will be strong

 

I will not leave a letter, nothing at all

I'm sure you won't notice that I'm even gone

Why did I stay here?

I stayed for so long when we're so far gone

I feel so stupid for taking this fall

I should have seen it, known all along

I won't break this silence we've shared for so long

I will be strong

 

What can you possibly want from me?

Can't you see I'm already gone?

Everything we thought we'd be

I still don't feel sorry for this loss

 

I will not waste a moment thinking these thoughts

Forgetting comes easy

I never cared at all

Hurt became hate, now I'm feeling the strain

There's just too much pain

Fell into pieces, got swept away

Left all our pictures in the sun to fade

I won't break this silence we've shared for so long

I will be strong

 

What can you possibly want from me?

Can't you see I'm already gone?

Everything we thought we'd be

I still don't feel sorry for this loss

 

You don't have to say anything at all

I won't stop you from walking away

I'll do nothing at all

 

Sitting here I waste a day

While the memories fade away

You know I expected so much more from you
