    Just something a little on the lite side. The one stuck in me latley is from Barlo's Walk away.

    Chorus
    It does'nt matter if your minds all a clutter
    It does'nt matter that your lying in the gutter
    It does'nt matter that your covered in scars
    Your never in the gutter with your eyes on the stars

    Thats a good one Farmer.

    Being a daggy 80's fan I quite like this chorus at the moment from Ordinary World by Duran Duran

    I won't cry for yesterday
    There's an ordinary world
    Somehow I have survived
    And as I try to make my way
    To the ordinary world
    I will learn to survive

    I love Duran Duran! :smile:

    I have always gotten fired up by the beginning of Know Your Rights by the Clash.

    I have a weakness for the album Presence by Led Zeppelin, especially the song "For Your Life".

    But the most touching lyrics I've ever heard that didn't make me feel like casting crumpets are from the song "Easy Does It" by Coverdale/Page:

    You said you needed love to warm you in the night,
    So you gave yourself to strangers,
    Who left you crying at first light.

    You think the world you live in doesn´t notice you
    But, don´t you worry, baby,
    I´ll be there to comfort you.

    So take it easy, easy,
    Easy does it, baby, nice and slow,
    I´ll take you anywhere the four winds blow.

    So weep no more, my lady, don´t you cry,
    I can´t paint your portrait with those tears in your eye.

    But, I can give you love, every night and day
    An´ we will walk together,
    The sun and moon will light our way.

    So take it easy, easy,
    Easy does it, baby, nice and slow,
    I´ll take you anywhere the four winds blow.

    I´ll tell you something you´ll understand,
    Grab a hold now, baby,
    And I´ll lead you to the promised land.

    I´ll make you feel so good, make you feel alright
    Chase away the shadows and keep you warm at night,
    Ooh, I´ll keep you warm.

    Take it easy, easy,
    Easy does it, baby, nice and slow,
    I´ll take you anywhere the four winds blow.

    Gonna keep you smiling and satisfied,
    Nothing but blue skies on a magic carpet ride.

    Take it easy, easy,
    Easy does it, baby, nice and slow,
    I´ll take you anywhere the four winds blow.

    Anywhere the four winds blow, I´ll take you there.

    Here we go, baby, hold on.

    No more worry, no more pain,
    The sun is always shining,
    And it never, ever rains,
    And it never, ever rains,
    And it never, ever rains.


    And yes, I know that guy doesn't exist. :redface:

    Hold On (Wilson Phillips)

    I know this pain
    Why do lock yourself up in these chains?
    No one can change your life except for you
    Don't ever let anyone step all over you
    Just open your heart and your mind
    Is it really fair to feel this way inside?

    chorus:
    Some day somebody's gonna make you want to
    Turn around and say goodbye
    Until then baby are you going to let them
    Hold you down and make you cry
    Don't you know?
    Don't you know things can change
    Things'll go your way
    If you hold on for one more day
    Can you hold on for one more day
    Things'll go your way
    Hold on for one more day

    You could sustain
    Or are you comfortable with the pain?
    You've got no one to blame for your unhappiness
    You got yourself into your own mess
    Lettin' your worries pass you by
    Don't you think it's worth your time
    To change your mind?

    chorus

    I know that there is pain
    But you hold on for one more day and
    Break free the chains
    Yeah I know that there is pain
    But you hold on for one more day and you
    Break free, break from the chains

    Some day somebody's gonna make you want to
    Turn around and say goodbye
    Until then baby are you going to let them
    Hold you down and make you cry
    Don't you know?
    Don't you know things can change
    Things'll go your way
    If you hold on for one more day yeah
    If you hold on

    Don't you know things can change
    Things'll go your way
    If you hold on for one more day,
    If you hold on
    Can you hold on
    Hold on baby
    Won't you tell me now
    Hold on for one more day 'Cause
    It's gonna go your way

    Don't you know things can change
    Things'll go your way
    If you hold on for one more day
    Can't you change it this time

    Make up your mind
    Hold on
    Hold on
    Baby hold on

    Like a Landslide

    Here's something I found recently. It was more to do with the title and how this felt when I got there, without knowing where I was. A landslide away from me and who I was, not knowing what or who I was going to become. It's also how you will feel coming out the other side.

    I am not any more Christian than I am Hindu, Sikh or Buddhist, because we spend far too long killing each other over it, which kind of defeats the purpose of religion to me.

    As I said, the title summed it up for me, the rest of the words you can replace with YOU/ME or the God of your own religion.

    In terms of music style it really wouldn't have been mine, but after many bangs on the head my tastes seem to be changing with the wind. Anyway here are the lyrics. If you want the music, then there is a link at the end.

    Landslide

    Here is your landslide, I’ve written it just for you, all the mountains you’re travelling through, hail the absence of everything good, But this is your landslide, all the stories you told in your head, of the person you want to forget, are the forgetful so fortunate

    This is your landslide, the sounds of experience, a newfound experiment, of ignoring yourself, here is your landslide, it’s time for some ownership, the landscape is torrent with, the hope you leave behind

    And the faster you climb, the higher you fly, is the distance you lose in yourself, and the faster you heal, the higher you feel inside, inside

    And the faster you climb, the higher you fly, is the distance you lose in yourself, and the faster you heal, the higher you feel inside, inside

    And the faster you climb, the higher you fly, is the distance you lose in yourself, and the faster you heal, the higher you feel inside, inside

    It’s a landslide, outside, what a fast ride, last try, inside, we can find God, find right, find light, there’s a fine line, rope tight, walk high, death defy life. Our time, is kind, it’s a soft cry, into, the night, that creates life, from heights, from on high, Father gave us and gave up, gave in, for the sake of

    A landslide, outside, what a fast ride, last try, inside, we can find God, find right, find light, there’s a fine line, rope tight, walk high, death defy life. Our time, from on high, Father gave us and gave up, gave in, for the sake of, a landslide, outside, what a fast ride, inside, we could find Christ

    This song is more than a companion to me. It gives me strength and hope whenever I am feeling down all these years... WORDS are powerful tool.


    Hero (Mariah Carey)

    There's a hero
    If you look inside your heart
    You don't have to be afraid Of what you are
    There's an answer If you reach into your soul
    And the sorrow that you know Will melt away

    And then a hero comes along
    With the strength to carry on
    And you cast your fears aside
    And you know you can survive
    So when you feel like hope is gone
    Look inside you and be strong
    And you'll finally see the truth
    That a hero lies in you


    It's a long road When you face the world alone
    No one reaches out a hand For you to hold
    You can find love If you search within yourself
    And the emptiness you felt Will disappear


    And then a hero comes along
    With the strength to carry on
    And you cast your fears aside
    And you know you can survive
    So when you feel like hope is gone
    Look inside you and be strong
    And you'll finally see the truth
    That a hero lies in you



    Lord knows Dreams are hard to follow
    But don't let anyone Tear them away
    Hold on There will be tomorrow
    In time You'll find the way


    And then a hero comes along
    With the strength to carry on
    And you cast your fears aside
    And you know you can survive
    So when you feel like hope is gone
    Look inside you and be strong
    And you'll finally see the truth
    That a hero lies in you
    -----------------

    My current latest favourite is Desperado by Emi Fujita.

    #Chorus#
    Desperado
    Why don't you come to your senses
    Come down from your fences
    Open the gate

    It may be rainin'
    But there's a rainbow above you
    You better let somebody love you
    You better let somebody love you
    Before it's too late

    Holy Water

    Big & Rich

    Holy Water
    (Big Kenny/John Rich/Vicki McGehee/Jeff Cohn)

    Somewhere there's a stolen halo
    I use to watch her wear it well
    Everything would shine wherever she would go
    But looking at her now you'd never tell

    Someone ran away with her innocence
    A memory she can't get out of her head
    And I can only imagine what she's feeling
    When she's praying
    Kneeling at the edge of her bed


    And she says take me away
    And take me farther
    Surround me now
    And hold, hold, hold me like holy water
    Holy water

    She wants someone to call her angel
    Someone to put the light back in her eyes
    She's looking through the faces and unfamiliar places
    She needs someone to hear her when she crys

    And she says take me away
    And take me farther
    Surround me now
    And hold, hold, hold me like holy water

    She just needs a little help
    To wash away the pain she's felt
    She wants to feel the healing hands
    Of someone who understands

    And she says take me away
    And take me farther
    Surround me now
    And hold, hold, hold me
    She says take me away
    And take me farther
    Surround me now
    And hold, hold, hold me like holy water
    Like holy water
    Like holy water
    Like holy water

    Juvenile perhaps, and not very uplifting, but these lyrics express exactly what I have to deal with every day.

    I love the lyrics of this song, listened to it for the first time last night. It is Evanescence- Sweet Innocent

    It's true, we're all a little insane
    but its so clear
    now that I'm unchained

    fear is only in our minds
    taking over all the time
    fear is only in our minds but its taking over all the time

    you poor sweet innocent thing
    dry your eyes and testify
    you know you live to break me- don't deny
    sweet sacrifice

    One day I'm gonna forget your name
    and one sweet day, you're gonna drown in my lost pain fear is only in our minds
    taking over all the time
    fear is only in our minds but its taking over all the time
    you poor sweet innocent thing
    dry your eyes and testify
    and oh you love to hate me don't you, honey?
    I'm your sacrifice.
    [I dream in darkness
    I sleep to die
    erase the silence
    erase my life
    our burning ashes
    blacken the day
    a world of nothingness
    blow me away]

    do you wonder why you hate?
    are you still too weak to survive your mistakes?

    you poor sweet innocent thing
    dry your eyes and testify
    you know you live to break me- don't deny
    sweet sacrifice

    Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb

    Wish I were...

    Pink Floyd
    Comfortably Numb

    Hello?
    Is there anybody in there?
    Just nod if you can hear me.
    Is there anyone home?
    Come on, now.
    I hear you're feeling down.
    Well I can ease your pain,
    Get you on your feet again.
    Relax.
    I need some information first.
    Just the basic facts,
    Can you show me where it hurts?
    There is no pain, you are receding.
    A distant ship's smoke on the horizon.
    You are only coming through in waves.
    Your lips move but I can't hear what you're sayin'.
    When I was a child I had a fever.
    My hands felt just like two balloons.
    Now I got that feeling once again.
    I can't explain, you would not understand.
    This is not how I am.
    I have become comfortably numb.
    Ok.
    Just a little pinprick.
    There'll be no more ...Aaaaaahhhhh!
    But you may feel a little sick.
    Can you stand up?
    I do believe it's working. Good.
    That'll keep you going for the show.
    Come on it's time to go.
    There is no pain, you are receding.
    A distant ship's smoke on the horizon.
    You are only coming through in waves.
    Your lips move but I can't hear what you're sayin'.
    When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,
    Out of the corner of my eye.
    I turned to look but it was gone.
    I cannot put my finger on it now.
    The child is grown, the dream is gone.
    I have become comfortably numb.

    Hey GR'ass,
    My boyfriend went out and bought me the CD and I love it as well, especially
    "One day I'm gonna forget your name
    and one sweet day, you're gonna drown in my lost pain"

    Man how I long for that day!!

    I was driving home from yoga class this morning when Golden Earring's 'Twilight Zone' came on the radio. I turned it up and sang and laughed (especially at the refrain). Gee...I know this feeling. :loopy:

    Help, I'm steppin' into the Twilight Zone
    This place is a madhouse
    Feels like being cloned
    My beacon's been moved under moon and star
    Where am I to go now that I've gone too far?
