Lyrics

Just a meaningless thread where you can post lyrics from a song that mean (or at one time meant) something to you. I'll start with "The Stairs" words and music by Michael Hutchence and INXS:

In a room above a busy street
The echoes of a life
the fragments and the accidents
Separated by incidents
Listened to by the walls
We share the same spaces
Repeated in the corridors
Performing the same movements

Story to story
Building to building
Street to street
We pass each other on the stairs
Story to story
Building to building
Street to street
We pass each other on the stairs

Listened to by the walls
We share the same spaces
Repeated in the corridors
Performing the same movements
The nature of your tragedy
Is chained around your neck
Do you lead or are you led
Are U sure that you don't care
There are reasons here to give your life
And follow in your way
The passion lives to keep your faith
Though all are different all are great
Climbing as we fall
We dare to hold on to our fate
And steal away our destiny
To catch ourselves with quiet grace

Listened to by the walls
We share the same spaces
Repeated in the corridors
Performing the same movements...


There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

3 doors down-im here without you:

A hundred days had made me older
since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lights had made me colder
and I donít think I can look at this the same

But all the miles had separate
They disappeared now when Iím dreaming of your face

Iím here without you baby
but your still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
and I dream about you all the time

Iím here without you baby
but your still with me in my dreams
And tonight itís only you and me

The miles just keep rolling
as the people either way to say hello
I've heard this life is overrated
but I hope it gets better as we go

Iím here without you baby
but your still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
and I dream about you all the time

Iím here without you baby
but your still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl itís only you and me

Everything I know, and anywhere I go
it gets hard but it wonít take away my love
And when the last one falls, when itís all said and done
it get hard but it wonít take away my love

Iím here without you baby
but your still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
and I dream about you all the time

Iím here without you baby
but your still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl itís only you and me


makes me think of maria! *tear*

i am a huge fan of metallica soo ill put this in:
its called my world:

The motherfu*kers got in my head
Trying to make me someone else instead

It's my world now

Mama, why's it rainin' in my room
Cheer up boy clouds will move on soon
Heavy fog got me lost inside
Gonna sit right back and enjoy this ride

It's my world
You can't have it
It's my world, it's my world
It's my world

I'm out of my head, out of my head
Get 'em out of my head, out of my head
Get 'em out

Who's in charge of my head today
Dancin' devils in angels way

It's my time now

Look out motherfu*kers here I come
Gonna make my head my home
The sons of bi*ches tried to take my head
Tried to make me someone else instead

It's my world
You can't have it
It's my world, it's my world
It's my world

I'm out of my head, out of my head
Get 'em out of my head, out of my head
Get 'em out

Not only do I not know the answer
I don't even know what the question is

God it feels like it only rains on me

Not only do I not know the answer
I don't even know what the question is

I'm out of my head, out of my head
Get 'em out of my head, out of my head
Get 'em out

Enough's enough

"I'll Plant My Own Tree" performed by Helen Lawson (dubbed by Margaret Whiting), music and lyrcs by Andre and Dory Previn.

I'll plant my own tree
And I'll make it grow
My tree won't be
Just one in a row

My tree will offer shade when strangers go by
If you're a stranger, brother, well so am I!

Come tomorrow
All that I see
Is my tree
Oh, Lord, what a sight.
Let someone stop me
And I will put up a fight!

It's my yard
So I will try hard
To welcome friends
I have yet to know.

Oh, I'll Plant My Own Tree
And I'll make it grow.

My tree won't be
Just one in a row

My tree will offer shade when strangers go by
If you're a stranger, brother, well so am I

Come tomorrow
All that I see
Is my tree
Oh, Lord, what a sight.
Let someone stop me
And I will put up a fight

It's my yard
So I will try hard
To welcome friends
I have yet to know.

Ohhhhh
I'lllllll
Plaaaaaaant
My
Oooooown
Treeeeeeee
My
Own Treeeeee
And
I
Will
Make
it
Grooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow!



It's best sung while dodging a huge Calder mobile or the song's lyrics just don't make any sense. You also need to sing it with a killer look on you're face like you'll knock someone's head off with a shovel if they try to fuck with your tree, too.

Whitney Houston and her receipts:

Joni Mitchel's "Both Sides Now", from the movie Love Actually


Rows and floes of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons evírywhere
Iíve looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on evíryone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way
Iíve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
Itís cloud illusions I recall
I really donít know clouds at all

Moons and junes and ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As evíry fairy tale comes real
Iíve looked at love that way

But now itís just another show
You leave íem laughing when you go
And if you care, donít let them know
Donít give yourself away

Iíve looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
Itís loveís illusions I recall
I really donít know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say I love you right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
Iíve looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say Iíve changed
Well somethingís lost, but somethingís gained
In living evíry day

Iíve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
Itís lifeís illusions I recall
I really donít know life at all
Iíve looked at life from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
Itís lifeís illusions I recall
I really donít know life at all

I am patient, but do not push, for it is silently one night I will wake, and you will find me gone come morning.

I'm a male

Hello-Evanescence

playground school bell rings again
rain clouds come to play again
has no one told you she's not breathing?
hello i'm your mind giving you someone to talk to
hello

if i smile and don't believe
soon i know i'll wake from this dream
don't try to fix me i'm not broken
hello i'm the lie living for you so you can hide
don't cry

suddenly i know i'm not sleeping
hello i'm still here
all that's left of yesterday

a very deep and dark song and it basically gets me through

My Forever Fav: Jelena Dokic

Serena Williams, Ana Ivanovic

Ooooo- Joni Mitchell! One of the best songwriters EVER:

All the guilty people he said
They've all seen the stain
On their daily bread
On their christian names
I cleared myself- I sacrificed my blues,
And you could complete me
I'd complete you.

His eyes were the color
Of the sand and the sea
And the more he talked to me
(you know) the more he reached me
(but I) Couldn't let go of L.A.
City of the fallen angels.

(Court and Spark) 1974

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

Skin - As long as that's true

Tell me this fight
Was just a cause
That we will die
With there flaws
I know itís meaningless
But that is what we all face

As long as thatís true
I can get over you

Tell me you used me to climb
Above us poor souls (standing) in line
For me a lot of pain
Is what I need to pull me through

Wanna feel this hatred
Itís what I need to drag me through this
I survive through nothing less
It tears me up as you calmly use it
Love abuse is just a test
Then sad old love songs
Stick the knife in deeper everyday
Twisting as you play

Tell me your reasons
Werenít pure
So I can kill
This wretched lust for you
Some damage done
Is what I need to go alone

As long as thatís true
I can get over you
