"at twenty-five and thirty-six to boulder
i was getting warm but now i'm getting colder
and i stomp my feet, demanding like a child
i hope you get everything you wanted, boy
i hope you conquer the world and turn it into your toy
but don't come crying when you're forced to learn the truth "

John Grant - Pale Green Ghosts

My favorites are:

"And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's meant to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive"

-Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls (I actually love the entire song, but these lines are the best)

"'Cause I'm only human after all
You're only human after all
Don't put the blame on me
Don't put your blame on me"

-Human by Rag'n'Bone Man

..I must let go
And when I finally reach the point of no return
I must let go because I know
I'm manic, I'm manic, I'm manic, so

And when you need catharsis (yes)
Because it's how you're made, you know (yes)
And when you need absolving (yes)
Don't ask how, but come into my house
Of pain"

In the valley of your slowly fading memory
Are there pastures, bathed in some uncertain light, where you won’t graze?
Paths you won't take?

Spin around now
Can you hear me?
Am I still buzzing in my sleep?
What does it feel like to shine between everything?

It's never going to stop
Batter up
Give me your best shot
Batter up

When I grow up I want to be a heretic
I want to climb over the wall 'cause I'm not on the list
I want to put my hands to work 'til the work's done
I want to open up my heart like the ocean

It lit me up
It lit me up
It lit me up
It lit me up

It lit me up like a rag soaked in gasoline
In the neck of the bottle breaking right at my feet
It lit me up and I burned from the inside out
Yeah, I burned like a witch in a Puritan town
It lit me
It was a good dream

Nine Inch Nails- I do not want this

..."Don't you tell me how I feel
You don't know just how I feel
 

I want to know everything
I want to be everywhere
I want to fu ck everyone in the world
I want to do something that matters"

Turn Ye To Me

The stars are shining cheerily, cheerily
Horo, Mhairi dhu, turn ye to me.
The sea mew's moaning drearily, drearily
Horo, Mhairi dhu, turn ye to me.


Cold is the stormwind that ruffles the breast
But warm are the downy plumes lining its nest
Cold blows the storm there
Soft falls the snow there
Horo, Mhairi dhu, turn ye to me.

The waves are dancing merrily, merrily
Horo, Mhairi dhu, turn ye to me.
The seabirds are wailing wearily, wearily
Horo, Mhairi dhu, turn ye to me.


Hushed be thy moaning, lone bird of the sea
Thy home on the rocks is a shelter to thee
Thy home is the angry wave
Mine but the lonely grave
Horo, Mhairi dhu, turn ye to me

I love this new thread, here are my favorite song lyrics that I relate to some much.

"Superman (It's Not Easy)"
 

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naïve
I'm just out to find
The better part of me

I'm more than a bird,
I'm more than a plane
I'm more than some pretty face beside a train
It's not easy to be me

I wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
'Bout a home I'll never see

It may sound absurd but don't be naïve
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed but won’t you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream
And it's not easy to be me

Up, up and away, away from me
Well, it's alright
You can all sleep sound tonight
I'm not crazy or anything

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naïve
Men weren't meant to ride
With clouds between their knees

I'm only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me
Inside of me, inside of me [2x]

I’m only a man in a funny red sheet
I’m only a man looking for a dream
I’m only a man in a funny red sheet
And it's not easy.
It's not easy to be me.

I don’t know who sung this first, but For me it’s Sarah Vaughan’s version and this part in particular:

Black Coffee

“I'm talkin' to the shadow 
One o'clock till four 
And Lord, how slow the moments go 
When all I do is pour 
Black coffee 
Since the blues caught my eye 
I'm hangin' out on Monday 
My Sunday dreams to dry”

Shyness is nice, and shyness can stop you
From doing all the things in life you'd like to
Shyness is nice, and shyness can stop you
From doing all the things in life you'd like to

So if there's something you'd like to try
If there's something you'd like to try
Ask me, I won't say no, how could I?

Coyness is nice, and coyness can stop you
From doing all the things in life you'd like to

Good one hocico. I can relate to that one too.

alone in a crowded room
He tries to force a smile
The smile it beamed or so it seemed
But never reached the eyes, disguise
Masquerading as the funny man do they despise

The false smile maketh of the man
Glass empty or half full
Try to make some sense or sorrows drown
All looks well on the outside
Underneath the solemn truth
There’s something that inside has died
Tomorrow comes tomorrow goes
But the cloud remains the same
Wonder why he’s feeling down
Tears of a clown
Maybe it’s all just for the best
Lay his weary head to rest
Was forever feeling drowned

I don't blame you anymore
That's too much pain to store
It left me half dead 
Inside my head
And boy looking back I see
I'm not the girl I used to be
When I lost my mind 
It saved my life

Light Years Away

I'm thinking that its time to get out
My patients are fading fast
The mind bruises just a little bit easier
In dark times and shadows cast
 
What are you suffering for?
Your pride or some kind of personal war?

Back in school they never taught us
What we needed to know
Like how to deal with despair
Or someone breakin' your heart
For twelve years I've held it all together
But a night like this is beggin' to pull me apart.

I'm bound to break if I stay the same, with all my weight I will force a change, coz' in my skin there's a sunlight and in my heart there is still a fight.

No sounds of Silence.

No rest, no peace.

Looking for some answers,

Looking for release.

No sounds of Silence.

No rest, no peace.

I need a change now,

Looking to be free.

 

Finish

I need a change

I need a change 

Looking for some answers.

Looking for release.

 

So Please, tell me

How do I leave me?

 

How do I leave me.

" Out of the blue
and into the black
They give you this,
but you pay for that
And once you're gone,
you can never come back
When you're out of the blue
and into the black. "

I cried, for I didn't think it could be true
That you and I might have always known one another
And that we could not only evoke, but conjure a place of our own
That everywhere that has ever existed
Was all in service of our dream
Now please, hear what I hear

Let me explain
This ugliness, this cruelty, this repulsiveness
It will all die out
And now, I cry for all that is beautiful

Let me explain
