    Favorite song lyrics

    What is your favorite song???...I have alot of favorites but i mean the song LYRICS which song do you think has the best message in it??....(try and include lyrics plz)


    I would say....When I'm gone-Three doors down



    There's another world inside of me that you may never see
    There's secrets in this life that I can't hide
    Well somewhere in this darkness there's a light that I can't find
    Well maybe it's too far away
    Or maybe I'm just blind
    Maybe I'm just blind

    So hold me when I'm here
    Right me when I'm wrong
    Hold me when I'm scared
    And love me when I'm gone
    Everything I am
    And everything in me
    Wants to be the one you wanted me to be
    I'll never let you down
    Even if I could
    I'd give up everything
    If only for your good
    So hold me when I'm here
    Right me when I'm wrong
    Hold me when I'm scared
    You won't always be there
    So love me when I'm gone
    Love me when I'm gone

    When your education x-ray cannot see under my skin
    I won't tell you a damn thing that I could not tell my friends
    Roaming through this darkness, I'm alive but I'm alone
    And part of me is fighting this
    But part of me is gone

    So hold me when I'm here
    Right me when I'm wrong
    Hold me when I'm scared
    And love me when I'm gone
    Everything I am
    And everything in me
    Wants to be the one you wanted me to be
    I'll never let you down
    Even if I could
    I'd give up everything
    If only for your good
    So hold me when I'm here
    Right me when I'm wrong
    Hold me when I'm scared
    You won't always be there
    So love me when I'm gone
    Love me when I'm gone

    Maybe I'm just blind

    So hold me when I'm here
    Right me when I'm wrong
    Hold me when I'm scared
    And love me when I'm gone
    Everything I am
    And everything in me
    Wants to be the one you wanted me to be
    I'll never let you down
    Even if I could
    I'd give up everything
    If only for your good
    So hold me when I'm here
    Right me when I'm wrong
    Hold me when I'm scared
    You won't always be there
    So love me when I'm gone
    Love me when I'm gone,
    Love me when I'm gone,
    When I'm gone
    When I'm gone
    When I'm gone




    ....Or Emotinless-Good Charlotte


    Hey dad
    Iím writing to you
    not to tell you, that I still hate you
    just to ask you
    how you feel
    and how we fell apart
    how this fell apart
    are you happy out there in this great wide world?
    do you think about your sons?
    do you miss your little girl?
    when you lay your head down
    how do you sleep at night?
    do you even wonder if weíre all right?

    but weíre all right
    weíre all right

    chorus:
    itís been a long hard road without you by my side
    why werenít you there all the nights that we cried
    you broke my motherís heart
    you broke your children for life
    itís not ok,
    but weíre all right
    I remember the days, you were a hero in my eyes
    but those were just a long lost memory of mine
    I spent so many years learning how to survive
    Now, Iím writing just to let you know that Iím still alive

    the days I spent so cold, so hungry
    were full of hate
    I was so angry
    those scars run deep inside this tattooed body
    thereís things Iíll take, to my grave
    but Iím okay
    Iím okay

    chorus:
    itís been a long hard road without you by my side
    why werenít you there all the nights that we cried
    you broke my motherís heart
    you broke your children for life
    itís not ok,
    but weíre all right
    I remember the days, you were a hero in my eyes
    but those were just a long lost memory of mine
    Now, Iím writing just to let you know that Iím still alive
    yeah, Iím still alive

    sometimesÖ
    I forgive
    yeah and this time
    Iíll admit
    that I miss you, said I miss you

    Chorus:
    itís been a long hard road without you by my side
    why werenít you there all the nights that we cried
    you broke my motherís heart
    you broke your children for life
    itís not ok,
    but weíre all right
    I remember the days, you were a hero in my eyes
    but those were just a long lost memory of mine
    Now, Iím writing just to let you know that were still alive

    and sometimes
    I forgive
    and this time
    Iíll admit, that I miss you, miss you
    hey dad
    peace;
    it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart

    I moved your thread madbanana. I thought it enjoy a nicer fit in our music forum.
    Iím haunted a little this evening by feelings that have no vocabulary and events that should be explained in dimensions of lint rather than words.

    I'm going to post 2 songs.

    The first one is a very very simple one. It doesn't have fancy lyrics or any "deep" meaning or anything.

    A few years ago I met a man online in a chat room (and I"m not talking about my husband). We had an instant connection, so powerful it was amazing. I'm not talking passion or the kind of love I feel for my husband, but he's become like a father to me & I'm like a daughter to him... It's very special, and it almost feels like we should've been related by blood, but we're not :-)
    We've both been looking for a special someone to fill that void in our lives and we clicked :-)

    So this song is a song that taken out of context may seem cheezy and simple, but it's a song that grabbed us instantly & it's become "our song" since then :-)

    (Wonder what it is about this board that makes me get so personal? This is very personal to me )

    "Made for lovin' you" ~ Doug Stone

    Everybody, sings a different kind of song
    All God's children have somewhere they belong
    Oh I've heard it said, I know it must be true
    We were meant to be, I'm made for loving you

    Everybody, has something he must be
    Call it fortune or just call it destiny
    I have spent my life making my way to you
    See the way we fit, I'm made for loving you

    Like blue skies always sing your name with sunshine
    And just like laughter goes along with good times
    I have spent my life making my way to you
    See the way we fit, I'm made for loving you

    Girl, I've spent my life making my way to you
    See the way we fit, I'm made for loving you

    The second song is a song I always play if I'm stuck in a writer's block, or can't think of a title for my new story or just plainly need to "relax while still thinking" (did that make sense...lol...)

    Fragile ~ Sting

    Sting - Fragile lyrics
    If blood will flow when fresh and steel are one
    Drying in the colour of the evening sun
    Tomorrow's rain will wash the stains away
    But something in our minds will always stay
    Perhaps this final act was meant
    To clinch a lifetime's argument
    That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could
    For all those born beneath an angry star
    Lest we forget how fragile we are

    On and on the rain will fall
    Like tears from a star like tears from a star
    On and on the rain will say
    How fragile we are how fragile we are

    On and on the rain will fall
    Like tears from a star like tears from a star
    On and on the rain will say
    How fragile we are how fragile we are
    How fragile we are how fragile we are
    "He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how."

    Starry Night (Don McLean's version) is probably my absolute favorite song. The words are moving, but when paired w/ the melody, is truly poetry set to music. After I first heard the song, I read this website about Van Gogh--it gave more meaning to the struggles in his life and the lyrics in the song.

    http://vincentvangogh.8m.com/biography.html



    Starry, starry night
    Paint your palette blue and grey
    Look out on a summer's day
    With eyes that know the darkness in my soul
    Shadows on the hills
    Sketch the trees and daffodils
    Catch the breeze and the winter chills
    In colours on the snowy linen land

    Now I understand
    What you tried to say to me
    And how you suffered for your sanity
    And how you tried to set them free
    They would not listen
    They did not know how
    Perhaps they'll listen now

    Starry, starry night
    Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
    Swirling clouds and violet haze
    Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue
    Colours changing hue
    Morning fields of amber grain
    Weathered faces lined in pain
    Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand

    Now I understand
    What you tried to say to me
    And how you suffered for your sanity
    And how you tried to set them free
    They would not listen
    They did not know how
    Perhaps they'll listen now

    For they could not love you
    But still your love was true
    And when no hope was left in sight
    On that starry, starry night
    You took your life as lovers often do
    But I could have told you Vincent
    This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you

    Like the strangers that you've met
    The ragged men in ragged clothes
    The silver thorn of bloody rose
    Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow

    Now I think I know
    What you tried to say to me
    And how you suffered for your sanity
    And how you tried to set them free
    They would not listen
    They're not listening still
    Perhaps they never will...

    I have lots of favorites, but one that really means a lot is "I Am What I Am". It's from the musical La Cage Aux Folles, and it was also released as a commercial single by Gloria Gaynor...

    I am what I am
    I am my own special creation
    So come take a look
    Give me the hook
    Or the ovation
    It's my world
    That I want to have a little pride
    My world
    And it's not a place I have to hide in
    Life's not worth a damn
    'Til you can say, "I am what I am"

    I am what I am
    I don't want praise, I don't want pity
    I bang my own drum
    Some think it's noise, I think it's pretty
    And so what if I love each sparkle and each bangle
    Why not see things from a different angle
    Your life is a sham
    'Til you can shout out, "I am what I am"

    I am what I am
    And what I am needs no excuses
    I deal my own deck
    Sometimes the aces, sometimes the deuces
    It's one life, and there's no return and no deposit
    One life, so it's time to open up your closet
    Life's not worth a damn
    'Til you can shout out, "I am what I am"

    I am what I am
    And what I am needs no excuses
    I deal my own deck sometimes the aces, sometimes the deuces
    It's one life, and there's no return and no deposit
    One life, so it's time to open up your closet
    Life's not worth a damn
    'Til you can shout out, "I am what I am"

    I am I am I am good
    I am I am I am strong
    I am I am I am worthy
    I am I am I belong

    I am I am I am useful
    I am I am I am true
    I am I am somebody
    I am as good as you

    Yes I am

    Okay, don't hate me. This is country, but I LOVE this song. It makes me cry.

    The Little Girl - John Michael Montgomery

    Her parents never took the young girl to church
    Never spoke of His name, never read her His word
    Two non- believers walking lost in this world
    Took their baby with them, what a sad little girl.

    Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs
    Never wanted to play or give kisses and hugs
    She'd watch the tv and sit there on the couch
    While her mom fell asleep and her daddy went out.

    And the drinking and the fighting
    Just got worse every night
    Behind their couch she'd be hiding
    Oh what a sad little life.

    And like it always does the bad just got worse
    With every slap and every curse
    Until her daddy in a drunk rage one night
    Used a gun on her mom and then took his life

    Then some people from the city
    Took the girl far away
    To a new mom and a new dad
    Kisses and hugs every day

    First day of Sunday school the teacher walked in
    And a small little girl started at a picture of Him
    She said "I know that man, up there on that cross.
    I don't know His name, but I know He got off.

    'Cause He was there in my old house
    And held my close to His side
    As I hid there behind our couch
    The night that my parents died."

    Thanks greenflute! I had some computer "issues" so I'm late in replying.

    I have a cat named Vincent Van Gogh...lol. When he was 2 months old, some mean boys cut his ears off, if you can believe that. I'm not a "cat person" per se, since I'm allergic and am a dog lover, but I do love this cat!!! He's awfully sweet--and he plays fetch!

    CG, that's my favorite mix too!

    So many to choose from but for tonight I'll say The Smiths "Girlfriend in a Coma" and Tom Waits "The Piano Has Been Drinking."
