"Saw you looking so sad
Like everything is gone
So you left them all
Just leave them all behind
Just realize the water is way over our heads
I don't worry much, cause I'm halfway dead

Saw you looking so sad
Like everything is gone
So you left them all
Just leave them all behind
Just realize the water is way over our heads
I don't worry much, cause I'm halfway dead

So why are you crying?
Why are you crying?

Can you tell me why, can you tell me how?
Can you tell me why aren't you happy now?
Whatever it is, it's really over now
Can you tell me why, can you tell me now?

We took them by surprise
By leaving this place
Some thoughts we left behind
Some good and some sad

You should know
I hold you in my arms...

You should know
That I hold you in my arms..."

In my life, she has burst like the music of angels, the light of the sun.

And my life, seems to stop as if something is over and something has scarcely begun........

..........thanks to you, I am one with the gods and heaven is near.

And i soar to a world that is new and is free...

..We knocked on the doors of Hell's darker chamber,
Pushed to the limit, we dragged ourselves in,
Watched from the wings as the scenes were replaying,
We saw ourselves now as we never had seen.
Portrayal of the trauma and degeneration,
The sorrows we suffered and never were free.

Four Strong Winds (my favorite version is performed by The Browns)

Think I'll go out to Alberta, weather's good there in the fall
I got some friends that I could go to working for
Still I wish you'd change your mind,
If I asked you one more time
But we've been through this a hundred times or more

Four strong winds that blow lonely, seven seas that run high
All those things that don't change, come what may
If the good times are all gone, and I'm bound for moving on
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way.

If I get there before the snow flies, and if things are looking good
You could meet me if I sent you down the fare
But by then it would be winter, not too much for you to do
And those winds sure can blow cold way out there

Four strong winds that blow lonely, seven seas that run high
All those things that don't change, come what may
If the good times are all gone, so I'm bound for moving on
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way.

Still I wish you'd change your mind,
If I asked you one more time
But we've been through that a hundred times or more

Four strong winds that blow lonely, seven seas that run high
All those things that don't change, come what may
If the good times are all gone, and I'm bound for moving on
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way.

I'll look for you if I'm ever pass this way

I'm Not Done by Fever Ray
So, I lost my head a while ago
But you seem to have done no better
We set fire in the snow
It ain't over, I'm not done
Some do magic, some do harm
I'm holding on, holding on
I'm holding on to a straw
Who is the Alpha? What is made of cloth?
How do you say you're sorry?
And there's nothing to be afraid of
Is it dark already? How light is a light?
Do you laugh while screaming?
Is it cold outside?

One thing I know for certain
I'm pretty sure, it ain't over
I'm not done

Papa roach - Scars

------

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I'm drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
You should've never come around
Why don't you just go home?
Cause you're drowning in the water
And I tried to grab your hand
And I left my heart open
But you didn't understand
But you didn't understand
Go fix yourself

I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life
I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life

"Thieves In The Night" by Hot Chip
 

My friend once told me something so right
He said to be careful of thieves in the night
Baby i've lost you here in the crowd
Open your arms I want to be found
Maybe I'm calling your name in the night
Open our eyes we'll feel with our sight

A want is a lack but also desire
A need can be nothing but should be held higher
A need is a want wearing disguise
It can be confused if fuelled by desire
Baby I'm calling your name in the night
No reason with need look into my eyes

Happiness is what we all want
May it be that we don't always want
Happiness is what we all want
May it be that we don't all want

My friend once told me something so right
he said to be careful of bugs that don't bite
My friend once told me something so right
He said to be careful of thieves in the night

Happiness is what we all want
May it be that we don't always want

Now I've got something you have to see
They put something inside of me
The smile is red and its eyes are black
I don't think I'll be coming back

I don't believe it
I had to see it
I came back haunted
I came back haunted

I said goodbye but I
I had to try
I came back haunted
C-C-C-came back haunted

Everywhere now reminding me
I am not who I used to be
I'm afraid this has just begun
Consequences for what I've done, yeah

"Come on out, come on out
Where'd you go? Where'd you go?
I don't mean to play here

Figure out, figure out
What you know, what you know
Figure out how to say it clear

'Cause you're more likely to get cut with a dull tool 
than a sharp one

You, you stuck around,
You stuck around,
You stuck around,
Until you got me
Then, then you dropped me

You, you don't kiss when you kiss
You don't f*** when you f***
You don't say what you mean
You don’t talk loud enough

No pulse in your impulse, celebration is impossible

You forgot the difference between equanimity and passivity
You forgot you have to try, you have to try, you have to try
You forgot that glorious feeling that you get when you get the truth
So tell that girl you don't love her
And if you do, tell her two times

'Cause you're more likely to get cut with a dull tool 
than a sharp one

You, you don't kiss when you kiss
You don't f*** when you f***
You don't say what you mean
You don’t talk loud enough

No pulse in your impulse, celebration is impossible"

We skipped the light fandango
Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
I was feeling kinda seasick
But the crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
As the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
The waiter brought a tray
And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale
She said, 'There is no reason
And the truth is plain to see.'
But I wandered through my playing cards
And would not let her be
One of sixteen vestal virgins
Who were leaving for the coast
And although my eyes were open
They might have just as well've been closed
And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale
And so it was that later

Memories

..I could be wrong
It could be hate
As far as I can see
Clinging desperatley
Imagining pretending
No personality
Dragging on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on
I think you're slightly late
Slightly late
This person's had enough of usless memories
Always remember
Twisted amenities
Could be wrong
This person's had enough of usless memories.."

This one haunts me, day in and day out. Lots of singers have recorded it, but Webb Pierce's version is my favorite. It's my [email protected] theme song.

There Stands the Glass

There stands the glass ...
That will ease all my pain ...
That will settle my brain ...
It's my first one to day ...
There stands the glass ...
That will hide all my tears ...
That will drown all my fears ...
Brother, I'm on my way. ... ...

CHORUS
I'm wond'ring where you are tonight
I'm wond'ring if you all right
I wonder if you think of me
In my mis-e-ry
There stands the glass
Fill it up to the brim
Till my troubles grow dim
It's my first one to day.

...I'm looking at the Big Sky.
I'm looking at the Big Sky now.
I'm looking at the Big Sky.
You never really understood me.
You never really tried.

That cloud, that cloud--
Looks like Ireland.
C'mon and blow it a kiss now,
But quick,

'Cause it's changing in the Big Sky,
It's changing in the Big Sky now.
We're looking at the Big Sky.
You never understood me.
You never really tried..

"Daddy?

Yes, son.

What does regret mean?

Well son, the funny thing about regret is that it's better to regret something you have done than to regret something that you haven't done.
And by the way, if you see your mom this weekend, will you be sure and tell her...SATAN!! SATAN!! SATAN!!"

Death Cab for Cutie - I Will Follow You Into The Dark

Love of mine, someday you will die
But I'll be close behind and I'll follow you into the dark
No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight, waiting for the hint of a spark

If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied
And illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
And I held my tongue as she told me,
Son, fear is the heart of love, so I never went back

You and me we've seen everything to see
From Bangkok to Calgary and the soles of your shoes
Are all worn down
The time for sleep is now
But it's nothing to cry about
'Cause we'll hold each other soon in the blackest of rooms

..What lies?
He's finally come alive
Out of these mediocre plentiful things all the time
A steady stream of madness
Conscious to a flood
The clock is ticking for Bad Blood

Do you remember the strain?
Do you remember the pain?
Do you remember who caused all the blame?

Bad Blood!

Do you remember me?
Do you remember us?
Do you surrender your dreams or your trust?

Bad Blood!

Komm Susser Tod

I know, I know I've let you down
I've been a fool to myself
I thought that I could
live for no one else

But now through all the hurt and pain
Its time for me to respect
the ones you love
mean more than anything.

So with sadness in my heart
I feel the best thing I could do
is end it all
and leave forever
whats done is done, it feels so bad
what once was happy now is sad
I'll never love again
my world is ending

I wish that I could turn back time
'cause now the guilt is all mine
can't live without the trust from those you love.
I know we can't forget the past
you can't forget love and pride
because of that it's chickening me inside

It all returns to nothing, it all comes
tumbling down, tumbling down,
tumbling down,
it all returns to nothing, I just keep
letting me down, letting me down,
letting me down,
in my heart of hearts,
I know that I could never love again
I've lost everything
everything, everything
that matters to me,
matters in this world

I wish that I could turn back time
'cause now all the guilt is mine
can't live without
the trust from those you love
I know we can't forget the past
we can't forget love and pride
because of that, its chickening me inside

It all returns to nothing, it all comes
tumbling down, tumbling down,
tumbling down
it all returns to nothing, I just keep
letting me down, letting me down,
letting me down
It all returns to nothing, it all comes
tumbling down, tumbling down,
tumbling down
it all returns to nothing, I just keep
letting me down, letting me down,
letting me down

Avenue Q - What Do You Do with a B.A. in English?/It Sucks to Be Me 

What do you do with a B.A. in English?
What is my life going to be?
Four years of college and plenty of knowledge
Have earned me this useless degree

I can't pay the bills yet 'cause I have no skills yet
The world is a big scary place
But somehow I can't shake the feeling I might make
A difference to the human race

Morning, Brian
Hi, Kate Monster
How's life?
Disappointing
What's the matter?
The catering company laid me off
Oh, I'm sorry!
Me too! I mean, look at me!
I'm ten years out of college
And I always thought, oh
What?
No, it sounds stupid
Aww, come on!

When I was little I thought I would be
What?
A big comedian on late night TV
But now I'm thirty-two and as you can see I'm not
Nope!
Oh well, it sucks to be me
No
It sucks to be me
No
It sucks to be broke and unemployed
And turning thirty-three, it sucks to be me
You think your life sucks?
I think so

Your problems aren't so bad!
I'm kinda pretty and pretty damn smart
You are!
Thanks! I like romantic things like music and art
And as you know I have a gigantic heart
So why don't I have a boyfriend?
****! It sucks to be me
Me too
It sucks to be me
It sucks to be me, it sucks to be Brian
And Kate
To not have a job!
To not have a date!
It sucks to be me

Hey, Rod, Nicky, can you settle something for us?
Do you have a second?
Ah, certainly
Whose life sucks more? Brian's or mine?
Ours!
We live together
We're as close as people can get
We've been the best of buddies
Ever since the day we met
So he knows lots of ways to make me really upset

Oh every day is an aggravation
Come on, that's an exaggeration!
You leave your clothes out
You put your feet on my chair
Oh yeah?
You do such anal things like ironing your underwear


You make that very small apartment we share a hell
So do you, that's why I'm in hell too!
It sucks to be me!
No, it sucks to be me!
It sucks to be me!
It sucks to be me!
Is there anybody here it doesn't suck to be?
It sucks to be me!

Why you all so happy?
Because our lives suck!
Your lives suck? I hearing you correctly?
Ha! I coming to this country for opportunities
Tried to work in Korean deli but I am Japanese
But with hard work I earn two master's degrees in social work!
And now I a therapist! But I have no clients!
And I have an unemployed fiance!
And we have lots of bills to pay!
It suck to be me! It suck to be me!
I say it sucka-sucka-sucka-sucka-sucka-sucka
Sucka-sucka-sucka-sucka-suck!
It suck to be me

Excuse me?
Hey there
Sorry to bother you, but I'm looking for a place to live
Why you looking the way out here?
Well, I started at Avenue A
But so far everything is out of my price range
But this neighborhood looks a lot cheaper!
Oh, and look a For Rent sign!
You need to talk to the superintendent
Let me go him
Great, thanks!

Yo, Gary!
I'm comin' I'm comin'
Oh my God! It's Gary Coleman!
Yes I am! I'm Gary Coleman, from TV's diff'rent Strokes
I made a lotta money that got stolen by my folks!
Now I'm broke and I'm the butt of everyone's jokes
But I'm here the superintendent! On Avenue Q
It sucks to be you
You win!
It sucks to be you
I feel better now!
Try having people stopping you to ask you
What you talkin' 'bout, Willis? It gets old

It sucks to be you on Avenue Q
(Sucks to be me)
On Avenue Q
(Sucks to be you)
On Avenue Q
(Sucks to be us)
But not when we're together
We're together here on Avenue Q!
We live on Avenue Q! Our friends do too!

'Til our dreams come true
We live on Avenue Q!
This is real life!
We live on Avenue Q
You're gonna love it
We live on Avenue Q!
Here's your keys!
Welcome to Avenue Q!
