    Here it is, Zhora. This one's a little less angry, but it's still very good. It's by Taking Back Sunday...

    There's No "I" In Team
    Well I can't regret,
    can't you just forget it?
    I started something I couldn't finish
    And if we go down,
    we go down together
    best friends means,
    well best friends means

    And I've got a twenty-dollar bill
    that says you're up late night starting
    fist fights versus fences in your backyard
    Wearing your black eye like a badge of honor
    Soaking in sympathy
    from friends who never loved you
    nearly half as much as me

    Broken down in bars and bathrooms
    All I did was what I had to
    Don't believe me when I tell you
    it's just what anyone would do
    Take the time to talk about it
    Think a lot and live without it
    Don't believe me when I tell you
    it's something unforgivable

    Well I can't regret,
    can't you just forget it?
    I started something I couldn't finish
    If we go down,
    we go down together
    best friends means,
    well best friends means

    You never knew
    well i never told you...
    Everything I know about breaking hearts
    I learned from you, it's true
    I've never done it with the style and grace you have
    But I've made long term plans
    based on these mistakes

    Broken down in bars and bathrooms
    All I did was what I had to
    Don't believe me when I tell you
    it's just what anyone would do
    Take the time to talk about it
    Think a lot and live without it
    Don't believe me when I tell you
    it's something unforgivable

    Is this what you call tact?
    I swear you're as subtle as a brick in the small of my back
    so let's end this call,
    and end this conversation
    there's nothing worse...
    (that's right he said, that's right he said it)
    I swear, you have no idea
    The jealousy that became me thinking
    (that's right he said)
    that you always had it way too easy

    Broken down in bars and bathrooms
    All I did was what I had to
    Don't believe me when I tell you
    it's just what anyone would do
    Take the time to talk about it
    Think a lot and live without it
    Don't believe me when I tell you
    it's something unforgivable

    Best friends means I pulled the trigger
    Best friends means you get what you deserve
    Best friends means I pulled the trigger
    Best friends means you get what you deserve
    Best friends means I pulled the trigger
    Best friends means you get what you deserve
    Best friends means I pulled the trigger
    Best friends means you get what you deserve
    Best friends means I pulled the trigger
    Best friends means you get what you deserve

    Best friend thinks I pulled the trigger!!!
    Best friend thinks you get what you deserve!!!

    (I've always liked this song...)

    At Seventeen
    (Words and Music by Janis Ian; Sung by Janis Ian)

    I leaned the truth at seventeen that love was meant for beauty queens
    And high school girls with clear-skinned smiles who married young and then retired.
    The valentines I never knew, the Friday night charades of youth
    Were spent on one more beautiful. At seventeen I learned the truth.

    And those of us with ravaged faces, lacking in the social graces,
    Desperatly remained at home, inventing lovers on the phone
    Who called to say, "Come dance with me," and murmured vague obscenities.
    It isn't all it seems at seventeen.

    A brown-eyed girl in hand-me-downs whose name I never could pronounce
    Said, "Pity, please, the ones who serve; they only get what they deserve.
    The rich relationed hometown queen marries into what she needs.
    A guarantee of company and haven for the elderly."

    Remember those who win the game lose the love they sought to gain.
    In debentures of quality and dubious integrity.
    Their small-town eyes will gape at you in dull surprise when payment due
    Exceeds accounts received at seventeen.

    To those of us who know the pain of valentines that never came,
    And those whose names were never called when choosing sides for basketball.
    It was long ago and far away; the world was much younger than today
    And dreams were all they gave away for free to ugly duckling girls like me.

    We all play the game and when we dare to cheat ourselves at solitaire.
    Inventing lovers on the phone, repenting other lives unknown
    That call and say, "Come dance with me," and murmur vague obscenities
    At ugly duckling girls like me at seventeen.

    I love this by Susan Ashton


    Love knows no limits love knows no bounds
    Hear it ring thru the hills and mountains isn't love profound

    It shows us the life that we know we can live
    it teaches us how to forget and forgive
    It gives us the harvest from sweet mercy fields
    It rescues, it nurtures, it calms, and it heals

    Love knows no limits, love knows no bounds
    it confounds the wisest of sages isn't love profound?

    It sings when we're weary from so many tears
    rocking us gently it cradles our fears
    In those times when we feel like we've come to our end
    it gives us the strength to start over again.

    Love knows no limits, Love knows no bounds
    it will stand even tried by fire , isn't love profound?

    Loving this little forum now!


    A Rose is a Rose
    (Words and Music by: Wayne Kirkpatrick)


    You're at a stand still
    You're at an impass
    Your mountains of dreams
    Seems harder to climb
    By those who have made you
    Feel like an outcast
    Cause you dare to be different
    So they're drawing a line
    They say you're a fool
    They feed you resistance
    They tell you you'll never go very far
    But they'll be the same ones
    That stand in the distance
    Alone in the shadow
    Of your shining star


    CHORUS
    Just keep on the same road
    And keep on your toes
    And just keep your heart steady as she goes
    And let them call you what they will
    It don't matter
    A rose by any name is still a rose
    The kindness of strangers
    It seems like a fable
    But they've yet to see
    What I see in you
    But you can make it
    If you are able
    To believe in yourself
    The way I do


    (chorus)
    Cause a deal is a deal
    In the heart of the dream
    And a spade is a spade
    If you know what I mean
    And a rose is a rose is a rose
    To deal with the scoffers
    Well, it's part of the bargain
    They heckle from back rows
    And they bark at the moon
    Their flowers are fading
    In time's bitter garden
    But yours is only
    Beginning to bloom
    So keep on that same road
    And keep on your toes
    And just keep your heart steady as she goes
    And let them call you what they will
    Just remember
    A rose by any name is still a rose

    I love driving while listening to Tom Waits' album The Heart of Saturday Night. Great drivin' tunes with interesting lyrics. It was totally impossible to pick just one, so here are a few of my favorites...

    Semi Suite Tom Waits

    Well you hate those diesels rollin'
    And those Friday nights out bowlin'
    When he's off for a twelve hour lay over night

    You wish you had a dollar
    For every time he hollered
    That he's leavin'
    And he's never comin' back

    But the curtain-laced billow
    And his hands on your pillow
    And his trousers are hangin' on the chair

    You're lyin' through your pain, babe
    But you're gonna tell him he's your man
    And you ain't got the courage to leave

    He tells you that you're on his mind
    You're the only one he's ever gonna find
    It's kind-a special, understands his complicated soul...

    But the only place a man can breathe
    And collect his thoughts is
    Midnight and flyin' away on the road.

    But you've packed and unpacked
    So many times you've lost track
    And the steam heat is drippin' off the walls

    But when you hear his engines
    You're lookin' through the window in the kitchen and you know
    You're always gonna be there when he calls

    'Cause he's a truck drivin' man
    Stoppin' when he can
    He's a truck drivin' man
    Stoppin' when he can

    Diamonds on my Windshield Tom Waits
    Well these diamonds on my windshield
    And these tears from heaven
    Well I'm pulling into town on the Interstate
    I got a steel train in the rain
    And the wind bites my cheek through the wing
    And it's these late nights and this freeway flying
    It always makes me sing

    There's a Duster tryin' to change my tune
    He's pulling up fast on the right
    Rolling restlessly by a twenty-four hour moon

    And a Wisconsin hiker with a cue-ball head
    He's wishing he was home in a Wiscosin bed
    But there's fifteen feet of snow in the East
    Colder then a welldigger's ass
    And it's colder than a welldigger's ass

    Oceanside it ends the ride with San Clemente coming up
    Those Sunday desperadoes slip by and cruise with a dry back
    And the orange drive-in the neon billin'
    And the theatre's fillin' to the brim
    With slave girls and a hot spurn bucket full of sin

    Metropolitan area with interchange and connections
    Fly-by-nights from Riverside
    And out of state plates running a little late

    But the sailors jockey for the fast lane
    So 101 don't miss it
    There's rolling hills and concrete fields
    And the broken line's on your mind

    The eights go east and the fives go north
    And the merging nexus back and forth
    You see your sign, cross the line, signalling with a blink

    And the radio's gone off the air
    Gives you time to think
    And you hear the rumble
    As you fumble for a cigarette
    And blazing through this midnight jungle
    Remember someone that you met
    And one more block; the engine talks
    Whispers 'home at last'
    It whispers 'home at last'
    Whispers 'home at last'
    It whispers 'home at last'
    Whispers 'home at last'

    And there are diamonds on my windshield
    And these tears from heaven
    Well I'm pulling into town on the Interstate
    I got me a steel train in the rain
    And the wind bites my cheek through the wing
    Late nights and freeway flying
    Always makes me sing
    It always makes me sing



    (Looking For) The Heart of Saturday Night Tom Waits
    Well you gassed her up
    Behind the wheel
    With your arm around your sweet one
    In your Oldsmobile
    Barrelin' down the boulevard
    You're looking for the heart of Saturday night

    And you got paid on Friday
    And your pockets are jinglin'
    And you see the lights
    You get all tinglin' cause you're cruisin' with a 6
    And you're looking for the heart of Saturday night

    Then you comb your hair
    Shave your face
    Tryin' to wipe out ev'ry trace
    Of all the other days
    In the week you know that this'll be the Saturday
    You're reachin' your peak

    Stoppin' on the red
    You're goin' on the green
    'Cause tonight'll be like nothin'
    You've ever seen
    And you're barrelin' down the boulevard
    Lookin' for the heart of Saturday night

    Tell me is the crack of the poolballs, neon buzzin?
    Telephone's ringin'; it's your second cousin
    Is it the barmaid that's smilin' from the corner of her eye?
    Magic of the melancholy tear in your eye.

    Makes it kind of quiver down in the core
    'Cause you're dreamin' of them Saturdays that came before
    And now you're stumblin'
    You're stumblin' onto the heart of Saturday night

    Well you gassed her up
    And you're behind the wheel
    With your arm around your sweet one
    In your Oldsmobile
    Barrellin' down the boulevard,
    You're lookin' for the heart of Saturday night

    Is the crack of the poolballs, neon buzzin?
    Telephone's ringin'; it's your second cousin
    And the barmaid is smilin' from the corner of her eye
    Magic of the melancholy tear in your eye.

    Makes it kind of special down in the core
    And you're dreamin' of them Saturdays that came before
    It's found you stumblin'
    Stumblin' onto the heart of Saturday night
    And you're stumblin'
    Stumblin onto the heart of Saturday night

    Im haunted a little this evening by feelings that have no vocabulary and events that should be explained in dimensions of lint rather than words.

    This is from the same album, but it has less of a driving theme. I always sing it really loud in the car and hope no one notices.

    Fumblin' With the Blues Tom Waits
    Friday left me fumblin' with the blues
    And it's hard to win when you always lose
    Because the nightspots spend your spirit
    Beat your head against the wall
    Two dead ends and you've still got to choose

    You know the bartenders
    They all know my name
    And they catch me when I'm pulling up lame
    And I'm a pool-shooting-shimmy-shyster shaking my head
    When I should be living clean instead

    You know the ladies I've been seeing off and on
    Well they spend your love and then they're gone
    You can't be lovin' someone who is savage and cruel
    They take your love and then they leave on out of town
    You know they do

    Well now fallin' in love is such a breeze
    But its standin' up that's so hard for me
    I wanna squeeze you but I'm scared to death I'd break your back
    You know your perfume
    Well it won't let me be

    You know the bartenders all know my name
    And they catch me when I'm pulling up lame
    And I'm a pool-shooting-shimmy-shyster shaking my head
    When I should be living clean instead

    Come on baby
    Let your love light shine
    Gotta bury me inside of your fire
    Because your eyes are 'nough to blind me
    You're like a-looking at the sun
    You gotta whisper tell me I'm the one
    Come on and whisper tell me I'm the one
    Gotta whisper tell me I'm the one
    Come on and whisper tell me I'm the one
    Im haunted a little this evening by feelings that have no vocabulary and events that should be explained in dimensions of lint rather than words.

    Here's a good one...

    Stop Whining by Rufio
    So close to
    no one that
    you care for
    cause you don't care
    It's not worth it
    can't think straight
    So take your pill
    and stop whining
    So close your eyes
    and think of your lies
    Behind the wall
    of innocence lost
    Think of family
    and think of your friends
    Think about all these thoughts will be gone when your dead dead

    Always feel discomfort
    Always feel alone well who cares about it
    Can't find a good reason
    to stay here
    So stop whining
    So close your eyes
    and think of your lies
    Behind the wall
    of innocence lost
    Think of family
    and think of your friends
    Think about all these thoughts will be gone

    If you really did
    want to end your life
    you'd be gone by now
    It's just a cop out
    You can't pull through
    You don't know what to do
    You analyze it
    but you cant see straight
    You dont know what to think
    Don't blame your shit on me
    It's getting older these days
    Just keep on passing by
    please be alone

    So close your eyes
    and think of your lies
    Behind the wall innocence lost
    Think of family
    and think of your friends
    Think about all these thoughts will be gone when your dead, dead

    It's basically saying to stop whining about wanting to kill yourself. Cuz if you're threatening to do it and pitying yourself so much, you would have done it already.

    Okay, okay...I'm getting a little carried away with posting lyrics, but this one is really good. It's not angry or anything. It's just a really sweet song.

    Moshi Moshi by Brand New
    I think I'm crazy, baby, let you off the hook to easy
    If you were a telephone, you'd still be off the hook
    This is my last leg
    Been awake for days
    In a minute I'll die of starvation
    I'll come back a ghost if I can haunt you
    and float around your room.

    What do I do when you get close?
    If I kissed your neck, would you slit my throat?
    Are you thinking of me when you're putting on your makeup,
    darling, and dying your hair like you do
    Well you're wasting time if you're trying to impress me
    I waste all my time just thinking of you

    And I'm not imagining how you give me the shivers,
    standing up to your waste in your river
    You're the sweetest boat-builder I think I've ever seen
    Dream in Japanese, dream in Japanese,
    some language I don't even know how to speak
    You're still pretty and I am still choked up,
    it's probably just the same
    The more I hang around you,
    the more hang-ups I get (more hang-ups I get)

    Are you thinking of me when you're putting on your makeup, darling,
    and dying your hair like
    you do? (dying your hair like you do)
    Well you're wasting time if you're trying to impress me
    I waste all my time just thinking of you

    I know that you're an angel,
    though you could never stay true (you could never stay true)
    Hey angel, I think your halo has a screw loose,
    'cause you dropped me like a brick off the rooftop of your high school
    Could I watch the next time you're applying your eyeliner?
    I waste all my time just thinking of you

    god! i have so many favorite lines and so many favorite songs. most of the ones that have stuck with me are from tori amos (and, i could not begin to pick a favorite song from her - she is just utterly brilliant) or ani difranco (who i am just getting beginning to get acquainted with). although, i have so many tori favorites, i would have to say that the most amazing ones come from "me and a gun", which i think was the bravest most wonderful thing for tori to share and make everyone aware through this song and her work with rainn.
    5am friday morning
    thursday night far from sleep
    I'm still up and driving
    can't go home obviously
    So I'll just change direction
    cause they'll soon know where I live
    And I wanna live
    Got a full tank and some chips
    It was me and a gun
    and a man on my back
    And I sang "holy holy"
    as he buttoned down his pants
    You can laugh
    Its kind of funny
    Things you think
    Times like these
    Like I haven't seen BARBADOS
    so I must get out of this
    Yes I wore a slinky red thing
    Does that mean I should spread
    for you, your friends
    Your father, Mr Ed
    It was me and a gun
    and a man on my back
    But I haven't seen BARBADOS
    so I must get out of this
    And I know what this means
    Me and Jesus a few years back
    used to hang
    And he said "it's your choice babe
    just remember
    I don't think you'll be back
    in 3 days time so you choose well"
    Tell me whats right
    Is it my right to be on my stomach
    of Fred's Seville
    It was me and a gun
    and a man on my back
    But I haven't seen BARBADOS
    so I must get out of this
    and do you know CAROLINA
    Where the biscuits
    are soft and sweet
    These things go through your head
    when there's a man on your back
    And you're pushed flat on your stomach
    it's not a classic cadillac
    It was me and a gun
    and a man on my back
    But I haven't seen BARBADOS
    so I must get out of this
    I haven't seen BARBADOS
    so I must get out of this
    "I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes. I am out of control, and at times hard to handle, but if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best .. "

    another one from tori:

    girl


    From in the shadow she calls
    And in the shadow she
    finds a way finds a way
    And in the shadow she CRAWLS
    Clutching her faded photograph
    my image UNDER her thumb
    Yes with a message for my heart
    Yes with a message for my heart
    She's been everybody else's girl
    maybe one day she'll be her own
    Everybody else's girl
    maybe one day she'll be her own
    And in the doorway they stay
    And laugh as violins fill with water
    Screams from the BLUEBELLS
    can't make them go away
    We'll I'm not seventeen
    but I've cuts on my knees
    Falling down as the winter
    takes one more CHERRY TREE
    She's been everybody else's girl
    maybe one day she'll be her own
    Everybody else's girl
    maybe one day she'll be her own
    Everyone else's girl
    maybe one day she'll be her own
    rushin' rivers
    thread so thin limitation
    Everyone else's girl
    maybe one day she'll be her own
    dreams with the flying pigs
    turbid blue and the drugstores too safe in
    their coats anda in their do's yeah
    Everyone else's girl
    maybe one day maybe one day
    one day one day she'll be her own
    smother in our hearts
    a pillow to my dots
    And in the mist there she rides
    And castles are burning in my heart
    And as I twist I hold tight
    And I ride to work
    every morning wondering why
    "Sit in the chair and be good now"
    and become all that they told you
    the white coats enter her room
    and I'm callin' my baby
    callin' my baby callin' my baby callin'
    Everybody else's girl
    maybe one day she'll be her own
    Everybody else's girl
    maybe one day she'll be her own
