Ever Hear A Song That Totally Resonates With You & Your Situation?


Recommended Posts

Another gem by the British prog band Marillion....highly recommend seeking it out & listening...moving and appropos';

If you were a baby I would take you and run

I could hide you in the folds of my heart

There's a truth in the madness that I can't get beyond

And a fever that won't leave me alone

I don't want my heart

Don't want my head

Don't want my friends

Don't want my bed

I can't live with myself

I can't live with myself

Can't take no help

I try to want you

But I can't get beyond you

I will stare from the window

At the shapes in the rain

As the space between us drives me insane

I can't live with myself

I can't live with myself

Can't take no help

I want no one else

If I was a child

I would reuse to leave

I would sit down on the street

Kick my legs and scream

I'm not much of a man but I know how I am

I know this won't fade away

I will pretend and be strong

But I wonder where I belong

And the feeling comes in waves

A hole in my body.. aching

Like a heart dying

A soul crying

Exhausted and insecure

Took all you have and I still want more

And I reach out to hold you,

But all I do is hurt you,

Hurt you

I can't live with myself

I can't live with myself

Can't take no help

I try to want to

But I can't get beyond you

If I was a child

I would take you and run

And I say I don't know...

But I know

And I say I'll go, but I don't let go

You just spent the whole day

Driving away

Yeah I'm totally not but actually my girlfriend (ex-kinda) heard it and thought it was a pretty accurate summary of things. Sadly. Maybe I get some comfort in that fact though!

As in my situation is THAT generic, The Wanted have a song about it! Ah, solace.

Hmmm.... well my geekier tastes are going to come out with this one, but this song:
(The reason why it may sound strange is because it's an English translation).


"Bad Apple"

Even in the midst of flowing time,
look, listlessness dances round and round.
I can’t even see my heart
as it withdraws from me, and I don’t care.
Even if i don’t make a move,
I keep being swept away through the cracks of time.
I don’t give a damn about anything around me.
I am me, and that’s all there is to it.
Am I dreaming? Am I seeing nothing?
My words are useless, even if I were to speak them.
Sadness only leaves me exhausted,
and I’d rather live my days feeling nothing.
Even if you told me those bewildering words,
my heart would be elsewhere, not listening.
If I were to make a move on my own, and change everything,
I’d still turn it all black.
Is there a future for someone like this?
Do I belong in this world?
Does my heart ache now? Do I grieve now?
I simply know nothing about myself.
Merely walking leaves me exhausted,
so how could I care about anyone else?
If even someone like me could change,
were I to actually change, I’d turn white.
If I make a move, if I make a move,
I’ll destroy it all, I’ll destroy it all.
If I grieve, if I grieve,
would my heart turn white?
I still know nothing about you, nothing about myself,
nothing about anything at all.
If opening my heavy eyelids means I’ll destroy everything,
then let it all turn black.

"Blue Turns To Grey"

So now that she is gone

You won't be sad for long

For maybe just an hour or just a moment

Of the day

Then blue turns to grey

And try as you may

You just don't feel good

You don't feel alright

And you know that you must find her, find her, find her

You think you'll have a ball

And you won't care at all

You'll find another girl or maybe more

To pass the time away

Then blue turns to grey

And try as you may

You just don't feel good

You just don't feel alright

And you know that you must find her, find her, find her

She's not home when you call

So you can go to all

The places where she used to go

But she has gone away

Then blue turns to grey

And try as you may

You just don't feel good

You don't feel alright

And you know that you must find her, find her, find her

Blue turns to grey (blue turns to grey)

She has gone away (blue turns to grey)

I feel so bad (blue turns to grey)

I wish you'd come on home (blue turns to grey)

I feel, I feel so down...

Wow, deep lyrics! I also got a song that really bring tears to my eyes in this hard time, I wanna share :)

Katie Melua - It's all in my head:

Every night we fall into bed,

But it's all in my head.

Every night we fall into heap,

And you kiss me to sleep.

And baby all the sleepy things you say,

Blow me away.

Till the next day,

When I find what we did and we said,

Was all in my head.

Every night you whisper to me,

This always will be.

Every night you smooth down my hair,

But you're not really there.

And darling it seems as if we know,

Our love will grow.

And then the next day,

I find what we did and we said,

It was all in my head.

Drowsy, drinking,

I keep thinking,

We're not far apart.

Scared of waking,

Lonely, aching,

Just me and my hopeless heart.

Sleeping soundly,

Your arms around me.

Through the night we cruise,

Then I find it's in my mind,

You stroke away my blues.

Every night we fall into bed,

But it's all in my head.

Every night in a heap,

And you kiss me to sleep.

And baby all the sleepy things you say,

Blow me away.

Till the next day,

When I find what we did and we said,

It was all in my head.

Hmmmm, I'm going to look for these right after this message. There's always a song out there for every mood. And more often than not, it's going to play at just the appropriate time while you're listening to the radio!

"Try" by Pink has a nice meaningful uplifting chorus, that doesn't try to tell me that "life is wonderful and great and that I should think positive", just keep moving forward

"Poison" by Alice Cooper (or Groove Coverage depending on your style) for that girl that broke your heart, stepped on it, soaked it in gasoline, burned it and made you eat the ashes :)

"Immortal" by Evanescence... That's for when I'm really down.

For some reason I found myself liking "Stay" by Sugarland. Country music is not my style but I liked the message (basically grow a spine and stand up for yourself) and the video is really nice, very emotional (plus the girl is cute :))

And then a few french songs... :)

Hi Bone Spur,

I try not to listen to too much music, lyrics end up going to bed with me and staying in my dreams, totally sucks. I can't wait for my brain to settle with my meds so I can enjoy music again. ( british groups from the 80's were really fun for me when I was young )

BoneSpur, Oh, I am so very sorry to hear! But could you tell me what In-Home Controlled Seperation is? I don't think we use that here in my part of the world. I never heard of it, definitely. 30 years, wow! It's half of your life. I feel with you :hugs:

Thanks Obli....we are under care of a Therapist, living under the same roof, but only talking via text, e-mail, and Instant Messenger. Essentially a 6 month seperation while we each work on ourselves and live totally seperate lives...rules in-place, doing a "date night" once per month...We attend weekly couples therapy as well.... If interested, read " How Controlled Seperation May Save Your Marriage". It has helped me....

It is tougher than actually being apart, since we pass each other at the house w/o speaking...ugh!

There are a few songs that remind me of my Dad, he passed away nearly 10 years ago now, but hearing some of these songs still reduce me to floods of uncontrollable tears. I seem to react slifghtly differently with each song- I'll share a couple with you guys; he used to whistle to the end of 'Sitting on a dock of a bay' by Otis Reading, this is one of my personal favourites, so I feel it is bitter-sweet when I hear this, like it's a beautiful soulful song, but I can't enjoy it with my Dad as I once did, especially now I'm older and can appreciate these things more.

My dad used to love The Eagles and Paul Simon too, so when I hear 'Hotel California', 'Take it easy' or 'Graceland' in particular, it takes me back to my younger self when I thought he was invincible.

And then there's 'You're beautiful' by James Blunt (Yup I know), which was constantly on the radio when it came out. It was on once when we were driving to the cemetery where my Dad is buried, and the emotion of that song felt in tune with how I was feeling at the time. I still get that twinge if I ever do hear that song.

Lastly, my Dad wasn't alive when this came out, 'I Giorno' by Ludovico Einauldi, a piano solo, but for reason, it really reminds me of him. I think he would have absolutely loved Einauldi's music, which is so utterly enchanting and emotive. Oh jeez Louise, I've set myself off now.

That sounds interesting! It this helping both of you in the right direction then? And how long do you have left? Sure, I am interested. Just not married, lol! I haven't even lived as long as your marriage has lasted :D

OK, I know I'm on a Marillion "kick", but dayum they are excellent song writers...and the songs are so sweeping....

"Fantastic Place"

Islands are mountain-tops
It's always a struggle
To let somebody go
It's a natural desire
To own your lover, I know

And you can screw a man down
Until he takes to drinking
He'll give you all of his money
You still won't know what he's thinking

Take me to the fantastic place
Keep the rest of my life away
Take me to the fantastic place
Keep the rest of my life away

Take me to the island
I'll watch the rain over your shoulder
The streetlights in the water
The moment outside of real life

I never could dream while I was sleeping
Put your arms around my soul
And take it dancing..

Take me to the fantastic place
Keep the rest of my life away
Take me to the fantastic place
Keep the rest of my life away

Take me to the island
I'll watch the rain over your shoulder
The streetlights on the wet stone
The moment outside of real life

Say you understand me
And I will leave myself completely
Forgive me if I stare
But I can see the island behind your tired, troubled eyes

Take me to the island
I'll tell you all I never told you
The boy I never showed you
More than I gave in my life
Take me by the hand
You'll either **** me or you'll save me
Take me to the island
Show me what might be real life
