    Ever since I heard it at my brother's graduation I have always loved the river

    The River
    Garth Brooks

    You know a dream is like a river
    Ever changin' as it flows
    And a dreamer's just a vessel
    That must follow where it goes
    Trying to learn from what's behind you
    And never knowing what's in store
    Makes each day a constant battle
    Just to stay between the shores

    Chorus
    And I will sail my vessel
    'Til the river runs dry
    Like a bird upon the wind
    These waters are my sky
    I'll never reach my destination
    If I never try
    So I will sail my vessel
    'Til the river runs dry

    Too many times we stand aside
    And let the waters slip away
    'Til what we put off 'til tomorrow
    Has now become today
    So don't you sit upon the shoreline
    And say you're satisfied
    Choose to chance the rapids
    And dare to dance that tide

    Chorus

    There's bound to be rough waters
    And I know I'll take some falls
    But with the good Lord as my captain
    I can make it through them all

    Chorus

    'Til the river runs dry

    I use to be big into country music :p And there are a lot of his songs I really like, but this one was always one of my favorites too.

    So don't you sit upon the shoreline
    And say you're satisfied
    Choose to chance the rapids
    And dare to dance that tide

    Was always my favorite line. Now only if I could heed the advice...Hmmm... :p

    Ok perhaps just a TAD overplayed on the radio, and it WAS in a Ben Affleck movie (blah)...but a KILLER song regardless with awesome lyrics. Hmmm....sensing a trend with the type of songs I am putting on here....

    "Bring Me To Life"
    (by Evanescence)

    how can you see into my eyes like open doors
    leading you down into my core
    where I?ve become so numb without a soul my spirit sleeping somewhere cold
    until you find it there and lead it back home

    (Wake me up)
    Wake me up inside
    (I can?t wake up)
    Wake me up inside
    (Save me)
    call my name and save me from the dark
    (Wake me up)
    bid my blood to run
    (I can?t wake up)
    before I come undone
    (Save me)
    save me from the nothing I?ve become

    now that I know what I?m without
    you can't just leave me
    breathe into me and make me real
    bring me to life

    (Wake me up)
    Wake me up inside
    (I can?t wake up)
    Wake me up inside
    (Save me)
    call my name and save me from the dark
    (Wake me up)
    bid my blood to run
    (I can?t wake up)
    before I come undone
    (Save me)
    save me from the nothing I?ve become

    frozen inside without your touch without your love darling only you are the life among the dead

    all this time I can't believe I couldn't see
    kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
    I?ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
    got to open my eyes to everything
    without a thought without a voice without a soul
    don't let me die here
    there must be something more
    bring me to life

    (Wake me up)
    Wake me up inside
    (I can?t wake up)
    Wake me up inside
    (Save me)
    call my name and save me from the dark
    (Wake me up)
    bid my blood to run
    (I can?t wake up)
    before I come undone
    (Save me)
    save me from the nothing I?ve become

    (Bring me to life)
    I?ve been living a lie, there?s nothing inside
    (Bring me to life)

    the kids are losin their minds

    pulsating to the backbeat

    blitzkreig bop

    Ok I know everyone loves Radiohead now, but I still think their best song was Creep. My brother loves them now and he didn't even KNOW what song I was talking about! GASP! :eek: Ok so he was too young to remember it but still....So here's the lyrics:

    Creep by Radiohead
    When you were here before,
    couldn't look you in the eye.
    You're just like an angel,
    your skin makes me cry.
    You float like a feather,
    in a beautiful world
    I wish I was special,
    you're so f-ing special.

    But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.
    What the hell am I doing here?
    I don't belong here.

    I don't care if it hurts,
    I want to have control.
    I want a perfect body,
    I want a perfect soul.
    I want you to notice,
    when I'm not around.
    You're so f-ing special,
    I wish I was special.

    But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.
    What the hell am I doing here?.
    I don't belong here

    She's running out the door,
    she's running,
    she run, run, run, run, run.

    Whatever makes you happy,
    whatever you want.
    You're so f-ing special,
    I wish I was special,

    but I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.
    What the hell am I doing here?
    I don't belong here,
    I don't belong here.

    Everclear Rules. I love Art Alexakis. The world would be a much cooler place if we ALL could get all of our anger, rage, issues, etc. out thru songs. Plus they're from Portland. AWESOME! And any guy that manages to mention a Star Wars poster in his song RULES! :D My two favorite Everclear songs:

    WONDERFUL:
    ?hey, ain?t life wonderful? wonderful, wonderful, wonderful... isn?t it wonderful
    Now? ? (spoken)

    I close my eyes when I get too sad
    I think thoughts that I know are bad
    Close my eyes and I count to ten
    Hope it?s over when I open them

    I want the things that I had before
    Like a star wars poster on my bedroom door
    I wish I could count to ten
    Make everything be wonderful again

    Hope my mom and I hope my dad
    Will figure out why they get so mad
    Hear them scream, I hear them fight
    They say bad words that make me wanna cry

    Close my eyes when I go to bed
    And I dream of angels who make me smile
    I feel better when I hear them say
    Everything will be wonderful someday

    Promises mean everything when you?re little
    And the world?s so big
    I just don?t understand how
    You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
    Tell me everything is wonderful now

    Please don?t tell me everything is wonderful now

    I go to school and I run and play
    I tell the kids that it?s all okay
    I laugh aloud so my friends won?t know
    When the bell rings I just don?t wanna go home

    Go to my room and I close my eyes
    I make believe that I have a new life
    I don?t believe you when you say
    Everything will be wonderful someday

    Promises mean everything when you?re little
    And the world is so big
    I just don?t understand how
    You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
    When you tell me everything is wonderful now

    No
    No, I don?t wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now
    No
    No, I don?t wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now

    I don?t wanna hear you say
    That I will understand someday
    No, no, no, no
    I don?t wanna hear you say
    You both have grown in a different way
    No, no, no, no
    I don?t wanna meet your friends
    And I don?t wanna start over again
    I just want my life to be the same
    Just like it used to be
    Some days I hate everything
    I hate everything
    Everyone and everything
    Please don?t tell me everything is wonderful now...

    I don?t wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now


    FATHER OF MINE:
    Father of mine
    Tell me where have you been
    You know I just closed my eyes
    My whole world disappeared
    Father of mine
    Take me back to the day
    When I was still your golden boy
    Back before you went away

    I remember blue skies
    Walking the block
    I loved it when you held me high
    I loved to hear you talk
    You would take me to the movie
    You would take me to the beach
    You would take me to a place inside
    That is so hard to reach

    Father of mine
    Tell me where did you go
    You had the world inside your hand
    But you did not seem to know
    Father of mine
    Tell me what do you see
    When you look back at your wasted life
    And you don't see me

    I was ten years old
    Doing all that I could
    It wasn't easy for me
    To be a scared white boy
    In a black neighborhood
    Sometimes you would send me a birthday card
    With a five dollar bill
    I never understood you then
    And I guess I never will

    Daddy gave me a name
    My dad he gave me a name
    Then he walked away
    Daddy gave me a name
    Then he walked away
    My daddy gave me a name

    Daddy gave me a name
    Daddy gave me a name
    Then he walked away
    Daddy gave me a name
    Then he walked away
    My daddy gave me a name

    Father of mine
    Tell me where have you been
    I just closed my eyes
    And the world disappeared
    Father of mine
    Tell me how do you sleep
    With the children you abandoned
    And the wife I saw you beat

    I will never be safe
    I will never be sane
    I will always be weird inside
    I will always be lame
    Now I'm a grown man
    With a child of my own
    And I swear I'm not going to let her know
    All the pain I have known

    Then he walked away
    Daddy gave me a name
    Then he walked away
    My dad gave me a name
    Then he walked away
    My da

    Dunno if anyone will even remember who this is but....Edie Brickell??? She had that big hit What I Am, and then she pretty much left the music scene and went and married Paul Simon. :p But this was always the best song off that album:

    Circle
    by Edie Brickell And The New Bohemians

    Me, I'm a part of your circle of friends,
    And we, notice you don't come around.
    Me, I think it all depends,
    on you, touching ground with us.

    But, I quit. I give up.
    Nothing's good enough for anybody else, it seems.
    And, I quit. I give up.
    Nothing's good enough for anybody else, it seems.

    And being alone is the, is the best way to be.
    When I'm by myself it's the, best way to be.
    When I'm all alone it's the, best way to be.
    When I'm by myself nobody else can say goodbye.

    Everything is temporary anyway.
    When the streets are wet - the colors slip into the sky.
    But I don't know why, that means you and I are - that means you and I?

    quit, I give up.
    Nothing's good enough for anybody else, it seems.
    And, I quit. I give up.
    Nothing's good enough for anybody else, it seems.

    And, being alone is the, is the best way to be.
    When I'm by myself it's the, best way to be.
    When I'm all alone it's the, best way to be.
    When I'm by myself nobody else can say?

    Me, I'm a part of your circle of friends,
    And we, notice you don't come around.

    System of a Down rock! But they are so much more than just a hard rock/thrash kind of group. The lyrics are amazing and deep and the melodies and beautiful voice of lead singer Serj Tankian is unbelievable. My favorite song is Chop Suey of the Toxicity album.

    Chop Suey
    by System of a Down

    Wake up (wake up)
    Grab a brush and put a little makeup
    Hide the scars to fade away the shake up
    (Hide the scars to fade away the shake )
    Why'd you leave the keys up on the table?
    Here you go create another fable

    (You wanted to)
    Grab a brush and put on a little makeup
    (You wanted to)
    Hide the scars to fade away the shake up
    (You wanted to)
    Why'd you leave the keys up on the table?
    (You wanted to)

    I don't think you trust, in, my,
    Self-righteous suicide,
    I, cry, when angels deserve to die

    Wake up (wake up)
    Grab a brush and put a little makeup
    Hide the scars to fade away the shake up
    Why'd you leave the keys up on the table?
    Here you go create another fable

    (You wanted to)
    Grab a brush and put on a little makeup
    (You wanted to)
    Hide the scars to fade away the shake up
    (You wanted to)
    Why'd you leave the keys up on the table?
    (You wanted to)

    I don't think you trust in my
    Self-righteous suicide,
    I cry, when angels deserve to die
    In my self-righteous suicide,
    I cry, when angels deserve to die

    Father (father)
    Father (father)
    Father (father)
    Father (aaahh)
    Father into your hands, I commend my spirit
    Father into your hands, why have you forsaken me?
    In your eyes, forsaken me
    In your thoughts, forsaken me
    In your heart, forsaken me

    Oh, trust in my, self-righteous suicide
    I cry when angels deserve to die
    In my self-righteous suicide
    I cry when angels deserve to die

    From Tori Amos' first album. I still haven't even bought it on cd. I have the cassette I bought 10 years ( :eek:) ago. It lives in my car and I still listen to it ALL THE TIME.

    Winter

    Snow can wait
    I forgot my mittens
    Wipe my nose
    Get my new boots on
    I get a little warm in my heart
    When I think of winter
    I put my hand in my father's glove

    I run off where the drifts get deeper
    Sleeping beauty trips me with a frown
    I hear a voice
    "You must learn to stand up for yourself
    Cause I can't alyways be around"

    He says when you gonna make up your mind
    When you gonna love you as much as I do
    When you gonna make up your mind
    Cause things are gonna change so fast
    All the white horses are still in bed
    I tell you that I'll always want you near
    You say that things change my dear

    Boys get discovered as winter melts
    Flowers competing for the sun
    Years go by and I'm here still waiting
    Withering where some snowman was
    Mirror mirror where's the crystal palace
    But I only can see myself
    SKATING around the truth who I am
    But I know dad the ice is getting thin

    When you gonna make up your mind
    When you gonna love you as much as I do
    When you gonna make up your mind
    Cause things are gonna change so fast
    All the white horses are still in bed
    I tell you that I'll always want you near
    You say that things change my dear

    Hair is grey and the fires are burning
    So many dreams on the shelf
    You say I wanted you to be proud
    I always wanted that myself

    When you gonna make up your mind
    When you gonna love you as much as I do
    When you gonna make up your mind
    Cause things are gonna change so fast
    All the white horses have gone ahead
    I tell you that I'll always want you near
    You say that things change my dear

    OOH Tori Amos. Very good! :D I always loved God.

    God sometimes you just don?t come through
    God sometimes you just don?t come through
    Do you need a woman to look after you
    God sometimes you just don?t come through

    god, i *love* creep. i just don't listen to pablo honey much anymore cause i burned myself out on it.

    well, being the rabid smashing pumpkins fan that i am, it's only proper that i post some pumpkins lyrics here at some point.

    one of the songs that made me start playing guitar:

    Thru the Eyes of Ruby - The Smashing Pumpkins

    Wrap me up in always
    And drag me in with maybes
    Your innocence is treasure
    Your innocence is death
    Your innocence is all I have

    Breathing underwater
    And living under glass

    And if you spin your love around
    The secrets of your dreams
    You may find your love is gone
    And is not quite what it seemed
    To appear to disappear
    Beneath all your darkest fears

    I believe in never
    I believe in all the way
    But belief is not to notice
    Belief is just some faith
    And faith can't help you to escape

    And with this ring I wed thee true
    And with this ring I wed thee now
    And with this ring I play so dead
    But no one's asking for the truth

    So let me tell you
    If you spin your love around
    The secrets of your dreams
    You may find your love is gone
    And is not quite what it seemed
    To appear to disappear
    Beneath all your darkest fears

    To the revelations
    Of fresh faced youth
    No one will come
    To save you
    So speak your peace
    In the murmurs drawn
    But youth is wasted
    On the young

    Your strength is my weakness
    Your weakness my hate
    My love for you just can't explain why
    Why we're forever frozen
    Forever beautiful
    Forever lost inside ourselves

    The night has come
    To hold us young
    The night has come
    To hold us young...

    I always thought it was a cool song, but it wasn't until I found out exactly what the lyrics were that I thought it was awesome.

    Verse 1 of "Click Click Boom" by Saliva

    "On those Saturdays, when kids go out and play, yo I was up in my room I let the stereo blaze, wasn?t faded, not jaded, just a kid with a pad and pen and a big imagination. ALL THIS, I SEEK, I FIIIND, I push the envelope to the LIIINE, make it, break it, take it, until I?m overrated!!"


    Here's to the creative ones...

    I absolutely love the George Michael Greatest Hits 2 disc set. I could listen to it (especially the for the heart cd) all the time.

    You Have Been Loved
    by George Michael

    she takes the back road
    and the lane
    past the school that has not changed
    in all this time
    she thinks of when the boy was young
    all the battles she had won
    just to give him life

    that man
    she loved that man
    for all his life
    but now we meet to take him flowers
    and only God knows why

    for what's the use in pressing palms
    when children fade in mother's arms
    it's a cruel world
    we've so much to lose
    and what we have to learn
    we rarely choose

    so if it's God who took her son
    he cannot be the one living in her mind

    take care my love, she said
    don't think that God is dead
    take care my love, she said
    you have been loved

    if I was weak, forgive me
    but I was terrified
    you brushed my eyes with angels wings
    full of love
    the kind that makes devils cry

    so these days
    my life has changed
    and I'll be fine
    but she just sits and counts the hours
    searching for her crime

    so what's the use of pressing palms
    if you won't keep such love from harm
    it's a cruel world
    you've so much to prove

    and heaven help the ones
    who wait for you

    well I've no daughters I've no sons
    guess I'm the only one
    living in my life

    take care my love, he said
    don't think that God is dead
    take care my love, he said
    you have been loved
