this is me, this is my life in song form
you are the loneliest girl in the world
takin your hits as they come
you are the loneliest girl in the world
and tonight you fall for anyone
someway you fall down to bad
someway you cry and he smiled
look at him

you are the lonest girl in the world
I've watched you die a thousand times again
you are the lonest girl in the world
and I just want to make it go away
and I just want to make it go away

The Bravery - Unconditional
I've spent my whole life surrounded
And I've spent my whole lofe alone
I wonder why,
I've never wondered why the easiest things are so hard

I just want, I just want love
I just want, I just want love
I just want, I just want love

I just want something
Something for nothing
Yeah, something
Something for nothing
'Cause I'm a begger and a chooser
I'm accused and accuser
But nothing's unconditional

I hold the whole world accused
And I've only got myself to blame
I wonder why
I've never wondered why the easiest things are so hard

I just want, I just want love
I just want, I just want love
I just want, I just want love

...

I just want something
Something for nothing
Yeah, something
Something for nothing
'Cause I'm a begger and a chooser
I'm accused and accuser
But nothing's unconditional

Pantomime Horse - Suede
I was born as a pantomime horse
Ugly as the sun when he falls to the floor
I was cut from the wreckage one day
This is what I get for being that way

Well did you ever
Did youever go round with them?
Well did you ever
Did you ever go round the bend?

I was conned by a circus hand
Tragic as the son of a superman
"I would die for the stars" she said
This is what I get for my beautiful head

Well did you ever
Did you ever go round with them?
Well did you ever
Did you ever go round the bend?

Ever tried it that way?
Have you ever tried it that way?
Have you ever tried it that way?

Iwas listening to this Suede album last night and found every track touching in a different way. This song and 'She's Not Dead' in particular. These are some of the best songs ever written - that may sound blunt but it's true. Music for misfits.

the light is dead in your eye
so I'll keep livin my life
I only wanted to try
to find my way back inside
my imitation of life
my litigation of life
it's something easy to find
inside the shade of your eye
[chorus]
out of the ground I rise to grace
nobody knows it's just a phase
help me I'm out of breath again
nobody knows somewhere to make it go away
phase [x 4]
I find it hard to decide
the way to make up your mind
your lips are better than mine
so you can kiss this goodbye
my imitation of life
my litigation of life
it's something easy to find
inside the shade of your eye
[chorus]
it's just a phase
and I can't wait
phase [x 3]
I know [x 3]
it's just a fucking phase
(yelling)


My dad died three years ago, and the only thing that really got me through it was my music. Somehow, I could go in my room and blast some Breaking Benjamin for a while and the rest of the world would fade away. I think it was the whole rising to grace thing that got me hooked.

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - The Smiths


Take me out tonight
where there's music and there's people
who are young and alive
driving in your car
I never never want to go home
because I haven't got one

anymore
take me out tonight
because I want to see people and I

want to see lights

driving in your car
oh please don't drop me home

because it's not my home, it's their

home, and I'm welcome no more
and if a double- decker bus
crashes into us
to die by your side
such a heavenly way to die
and if a ten ton truck
kills the both of us
to die by your side
well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine

take me out tonight
oh take me anywhere, I don't care
I don't care, I don't care
and in the darkened underpass
I thought Oh God, my chance has come at last

(but then a strange fear gripped me and I
just couldn't ask)

take me out tonight
take me anywhere, I don't care

I don't care, I don't care

driving in your car
I never never want to go home
because I haven't got one
I haven't got one
and if a double- decker bus

crashes into us
to die by your side
is such a heavenly way to die

and if a ten ton truck
kills the both of us
to die by your side

well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine
Oh, there is a light and it never goes out
there is a light and it never goes out
there is a light and it never goes out
there is a light and it never goes out
there is a light and it never goes out
there is a light and it never goes out
there is a light and it never goes out

there is a light and it never goes out
there is a light and it never goes out


I'm new and I'm terrible at introductions, so I won't write one :P Anyway, this song is very special to me since it's the first The Smiths song I heard. I can't explain why it means so much to me, I just loved it from the moment I heard the first chord.

Shakespear's Sister- the smiths
Young bones groan
And the rocks below, say:
"Throw your skinny body down, son!"
But I am going to meet the one I love
So, please don't stand in my way
Because I'm going to meet the one I love
No, Mamma, let me go!
Young bones groan
And the rocks below, say:
"Throw your white body down!"
But I am going to meet the one I love
At last! At last! At last!
I am going to meet the one I love
La-de-da, la-de-da
No, Mamma, let me go!
I thought that if you had
An acoustic guitar
Then it meant that you were
A Protest Singer
Oh I can smile about it now
But at the time it was terrible
No, Mamma, let me go

Lost everything
I've watched my dreams all fade away
And blister in the sun
Everything I've ever had is unraveled and undone
I've set upon a worthless stack
Of my ambitious plans
And the people that I've loved the most
Have turned their backs and ran

I've lost everything
I could ever want
And ever dream of

Loneliness has left me searching
For someone to love
Poverty has changed my view
Of what true riches are
Sorrow's opened up my eyes
To see what real joy is
Pain has been the catalyst
To my heart's happiness

Current Mood: empty

Vampirs will never hurt you - My Chemical Romance
And if they get me and the sun goes down into the ground
And if they get me take this spike to my heart and
And if they get me and the sun goes down
And if they get me take this spike and
You put the spike in my heart

And if the sun comes up will it tear the skin right off our bones
And then as razor sharp white teeth rip out our necks I saw you there
Someone call the doctor, someone get me to a church
Where they can pump this venom gaping hole
And you must keep your soul like a secret in your throat
And if they come and get me
You put the spike in my heart

And if they get me and the sun goes down
And if they get me take this spike and
-Chorus-
Can you take this spike?
Will it fill our hearts with thoughts of endless
Night time sky
Can you take this spike?
Will it wash away this jet black feeling?

And now the nightclub sets the stage for this they come in pairs she said
We'll shoot back holy water like cheap whiskey they're always there
Someone get me to the doctor, and someone call the nurse
And someone buy me roses, and someone burned the church
We're hanging out with corpses, and driving in this hearse
Someone save my soul tonight, please save my soul
-Chorus-

And as these days watch over time, and as these days watch over time
And as these days watch over us tonight
I'll never let them, I'll never let them
I'll never let them hurt you not tonight
I'll never let them, I can't forget them
I'll never let them hurt you, I promise

Struck down, before our prime
Before, you got off the floor
Can you stake my heart? Can you stake my heart?
Can you stake me before the sun goes down?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I found this community just from looking at random intrests and it looked really neat. The song I just posted is one of my favorites. I was recently stabbed in the back by who I thought was my bestfriend, and I have found that this song is a good one to scream to and get some of my anger out with.

"can you stake my heart?"

My Immortal
I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

You used to captivate me
By your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along

Haligh,Haligh, A Lie, Haligh - Bright Eyes
But now we speak with ruined tongues
and the words we say aren’t meant for anyone.
It’s just a mumbled sentence to a passing acquaintance,
but there was once you said
you hate my suffering
and you understood
and you’d take care of me.
You would always be there,
well where are you now?

In A Graveyard - Rufus Wainwright
Wandering properties of death
Arresting moons within our eyes and smiles
We did rest
Amongst the granite tombs to catch our breath

Worldly sounds of endless warring
Were for just a moment silent stars
Worldly boundaries of dying
Were for just a moment never ours
All was new
Just as the black horizons blue

Then along the bending path away
I smiled in knowing I'd be back one day



I am new to this community and I am sure that I will have more to post in the future.
This song helped me deal with the loss of a close friend. I just have to remember that some day I will see him again.

all good dreamers pass this way someday
The last time I saw Richard was Detroit in '68
And he told me all romantics meet the same fate someday
Cynical and drunk and boring someone in some dark cafe
You laugh he said you think you're immune
Go look at your eyes they're full of moon
You like roses and kisses and pretty men to tell you
All those pretty lies pretty lies
When you gonna realise they're only pretty lies
Only pretty lies just pretty lies

He put a quarter in the Wurlitzer and he pushed
Three buttons and the thing began to whirr
And a bar maid came by in fishnet stockings and a bow tie
And she said "Drink up now it's gettin' on time to close"
"Richard, you haven't really changed" I said
It's just that now you're romanticizing some pain that's in your head
You got tombs in your eyes but the songs you punched are dreaming
Listen, they sing of love so sweet, love so sweet
When you gonna get yourself back on your feet?
Oh and love can be so sweet Love so sweet

Richard got married to a figure skater
And he bought her a dishwasher and a coffee percolator
And he drinks at home now most nights with the TV on
And all the house lights left up bright
I'm gonna blow this damn candle out
I don't want nobody comin' over to my table
I got nothing to talk to anybody about
All good dreamers pass this way some day
Hidin' behind bottles in dark cafes dark cafes
Only a dark cocoon before I get my gorgeous wings and fly away
Only a phase these dark cafe days

~ Joni Mitchell, "Last Time I Saw Richard"




My favourite song to listen to on warm nights when you can leave the windows open and the moonlight makes everything outside look blue. That's the kind of night it was when I first heard this song. When I graduated, I didn't want a car or a trip somewhere -- I wanted a turntable, and full reign of my parents records. For years I thought it was criminal for those songs to sit there dusty and unplayed. I wanted that to change. So on a summer night, I set up my new stereo and carried old treasures into my room that were all new to me.

I keep telling myself that it's all a phase -- these are my dark cafe days.
All the good dreamers have passed this way.

the smiths-'asleep'
Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I'm tired and I
I want to go to bed

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
And then leave me alone
Don't try to wake me in the morning
'Cause I will be gone
Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I will feel so glad to go


Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore


Sing to me
Sing to me
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore


Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I really want to go


There is another world
There is a better world
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well ...


Bye bye
Bye bye
Bye ...


i remember the night when my father passed away with this song.vague clips of me in the special waiting room with my copy of 'high fidelity' and my neo geo pocket and i didn't want to do anything but stare at the wall.this was before i was told what happened of course.once i knew and i waited for my mum to arrive from her job i had a basic freakout.i called my recently ex-girlfriend and went over there for a hug .i returned back to the hospital before my mum arrived and after she got there and she was calm as can be we saw him.leaving the hospital silent with no muic i drove in front of my mum and when we got home she sat in her car and cried.the only thing i could do was hide in my room but nothing made sense to me.everything was on my nerves ,no piece of music could fit the task of calming me.i vaguely remembered the song so i found the album and put it on.at first it made me cry harder but after time it became a lullaby that let me eventually fall asleep.

i'd say
Lately, I've been feeling out of it, out of the world and disconnected in a bad way. Matthew Good Band's "beautiful midnight" and the song "the fine art of falling apart" have helped. So has Guster's many songs, like "Parachute" and "Pantomime." I don't know, overall I think I'm beyond music at this point. Clive Barker may not help from a subject-matter perspective, but I always feel like aspiring to his standard of writing would be wonderous; even though it's not music, I felt inclined to slip it in there.

Alkaline Trio's 'Goddamnit' can get me through any situation.
happy, sad, mad, or even lost. If there isn't a cd to listen to, it's gotta be that one. I'd get into detail. but seanie is sleepy.

abstract accuracy...[perfection.]
how sad.
and this is what your life has been reduced to.
a single room of pottery containing no more than a mattress
how sad when all the strings have been removed from the blinds,
and all the outlets have been painted over,
and the television screen is streaked with blood
and smeared from your knuckles,
as you were trying to punch it out,
but you underestimated its strength.
or maybe you just werent trying hard enough.
startled by a knock at the door,
youll rise for the first time in two days to answer.
but you can only greet the visitor with one short statement:
"hello, my first name is distance, and i really dont care if i never wake up again. I really dont care if I ever wake up again. I really dont care if I ever wake up again."
