    These Lyrics descibe me perfectly, I always have to sing along when this song comes on the radio

    Bitch by Meredith Brooks

    I hate the world today
    You're so good to me
    I know but I can't change
    Tried to tell you
    But you look at me like maybe
    I'm an angel underneath
    Innocent and sweet
    Yesterday I cried
    Must have been relieved to see
    The softer side
    I can understand how you'd be so confused
    I don't envy you
    I'm a little bit of everything
    All rolled into one

    I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
    I'm a child, I'm a mother
    I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
    I do not feel ashamed
    I'm your hell, I'm your dream
    I'm nothing in between
    You know you wouldn't want it any other way

    So take me as I am
    This may mean
    You'll have to be a stronger man
    Rest assured that
    When I start to make you nervous
    And I'm going to extremes
    Tomorrow I will change
    And today won't mean a thing

    Just when you think, you got me figured out
    The season's already changing
    I think it's cool, you do what you do
    And don't try to save me

    I'm a bitch, I'm a tease
    I'm a goddess on my knees
    When you hurt, when you suffer
    I'm your angel undercover
    I've been numb, I'm revived
    Can't say I'm not alive
    You know I wouldn't want it any other way

    Hey Jude
    The Beatles

    Hey Jude, don't make it bad. Take a sad song and make it better.
    Remember, to let her into your heart, then you can start, to make it better.

    Hey Jude, don't be afraid. You were made to, go out and get her.
    The minute, you let her under your skin, then you begin, to make it better.

    And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain,
    don't carry the world, upon, your shoulders.
    For well you know that it's a fool, who plays, it cool
    by making his world, a little, colder.

    Hey Jude, don't let me down. You have found her, now go and get her.
    Remember, to let her into your heart, then you can start, to make it better.

    So let it out and let it in, hey Jude, begin,
    you're waiting for someone to, perform with.
    And don't you know that it's just you, hey Jude, you'll do,
    the movement you need, is on your shoulder.

    Hey Jude, don't make it bad. Take a sad song, and make it better.
    Remember, to let her under your skin, then you'll begin, to make it
    better, better, better, better, better, better, oh.

    Da, da da, da da da, da; da da da, da; hey Jude (repeat 16 times and fade out)

    Time by Pink Floyd

    Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
    You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.

    Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
    You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

    So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again.
    The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.


    Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
    Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
    Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
    The time is gone, the song is over,
    Thought I'd something more to say.

    I love the Beatles too!!! Their lyrics are so great.

    My favorite lyrics (excerpts from the songs)

    All You Need Is Love
    "All you need is love, love,
    Love is all you need!"
    ~The Beatles

    Beautiful Boy
    "Before you cross the street, take my hand.
    Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans..."
    ~John Lennon

    Give Me Love:
    "Give me love
    Give me love
    Give me peace on earth
    Give me light
    Give me life
    Keep me free from burden
    Give me hope
    Help me cope, with this heavy load
    Trying to, touch and reach you with,
    Heart and soul"
    ~George Harrison

    Photograph:
    "Ev'ry time I see your face,
    It reminds me of the places we used to go.
    But all I got is a photograph
    And I realise you're not coming back anymore..."
    -George Harrison and Ringo Starr

    Across the Universe
    "Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,
    They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe
    Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my open mind,
    Possessing and caressing me.
    Jai guru de va om
    Nothing's gonna change my world,
    Nothing's gonna change my world.

    Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,
    That call me on and on across the universe,
    Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box they
    Tumble blindly as they make their way
    Across the universe
    Jai guru de va om
    Nothing's gonna change my world,
    Nothing's gonna change my world.

    Sounds of laughter shades of earth are ringing
    Through my open views inviting and inciting me
    Limitless undying love which shines around me like a
    Million suns, it calls me on and on
    Across the universe
    Jai guru de va om
    Nothing's gonna change my world,
    Nothing's gonna change my world."
    ~The Beatles

    Number 1 favorite lyrics
    War! huh-yeah
    What is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Uh-huh

    War! huh-yeah
    What is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Say it again y'all

    War! huh good God
    What is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Listen to me?

    Ohhh? War! I despise
    Because it means destruction?
    Of innocent lives

    War means tears
    to thousands of mothers eyes
    When their sons go to fight
    and lose their lives

    I said - War! Huh Good God y'all
    What is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Say it again

    War! Whoa, Lord ...
    What is it good for
    Absolutely nothing
    Listen to me?

    War! It ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
    War! Friend only to the undertaker
    War! It's an enemy to all mankind
    The thought of war blows my mind

    War has caused unrest in the younger generation
    Induction then destruction-
    Who wants to die?

    Ohhh? War Good God y'all
    What is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Say it, Say it, Say it

    War! Uh-huh Yeah - Huh!
    What is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Listen to me?

    War! It ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
    War! It's got one friend, that's the undertaker
    War has shattered many a young mans dreams
    Made him disabled bitter and mean
    Life is much to precious to spend fighting wars these days
    War can't give life, it can only take it away

    War! Huh Good God y'all
    What is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Say it again

    War! Whoa, Lord ...
    What is it good for
    Absolutely nothing
    Listen to me?

    War! It ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
    War! Friend only to the undertaker
    Peace Love and Understanding;
    tell me, is there no place for them today?
    They say we must fight to keep our freedom
    But Lord knows there's got to be a better way

    War! Huh Good God y'all
    What is it good for?
    You tell me
    Say it, Say it, Say it

    War! Huh Good God y'all
    What is it good for?
    Stand up and shout it.
    Nothing!

    Number 2
    Born down in a dead man's town
    The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
    You end up like a dog that's been beat too much
    Till you spend half your life just covering up

    Born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    Born in the U.S.A.

    Got in a little hometown jam
    So they put a rifle in my hand
    Sent me off to a foreign land
    To go and kill the yellow man

    Born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    Born in the U.S.A.

    Come back home to the refinery
    Hiring man says "Son if it was up to me"
    Went down to see my V.A. man
    He said "Son, don't you understand"

    I had a brother at Khe Sahn fighting off the Viet Cong
    They're still there, he's all gone

    He had a woman he loved in Saigon
    I got a picture of him in her arms now

    Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
    Out by the gas fires of the refinery
    I'm ten years burning down the road
    Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go

    Born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    Born in the U.S.A.
    I'm a long gone Daddy in the U.S.A.
    Born in the U.S.A.
    Born in the U.S.A.
    Born in the U.S.A.
    I'm a cool rocking Daddy in the U.S.A.

    These are my top 3.

    Here With Me-Dido
    I didn?t hear you leave
    I wonder how am I still here
    I don?t want to move a thing
    It might change my memory
    Oh I am what I am
    I?ll do what I want
    But I can?t hide
    I won?t go
    I won?t sleep
    I can?t breathe
    Until you?re resting here with me
    I won?t leave
    I can?t hide
    I cannot be
    Until your resting here with me

    I don?t want to call my friends
    They might wake me from this dream
    And I can?t leave this bed
    Risk forgetting all that?s been

    Oh I am what I am
    I?ll do what I want
    But I can?t hide
    I won?t go
    I won?t sleep
    I can?t breathe
    Until you?re resting here with me
    I won?t leave
    I can?t hide
    I cannot be
    Until your resting here with me
    -------------------------------------------------------

    The Nullarbor Song-Kasey Chambers
    When the fire burns out here
    It's brighter than the city lights
    Warmer than a heart of gold
    And dingo's howl just to break the silence
    The sun comes up just to break the cold
    Last night I woke
    With the stars looking back at me
    Swallowing the sky
    I felt no anger, I felt no shame
    I felt no reason to cry

    If I'm not here in the morning
    I'll cry a river of tears
    But I'll learn to live in a new town
    But my heart is staying here

    When it's quiet out here
    A hundred miles away
    You can hear the train on the line
    The whistle blows just to break the silence
    I wave just to break the time
    I close my eyes
    I think of runnin' water
    I think of runnin' away
    But the fires burnt to ashes
    And it's darker than before
    But I can see as clear as day
    ----------------------------------------------------

    Worry About You-Ivy
    Bye, Bye, Baby
    Don't Be Long
    I Worry About You
    While You're Gone

    Bye, Bye, Baby
    Don't Be Long
    I Worry About You
    While You're Gone

    I think of you in my dreams
    You never know, just what you mean, to me
    To me

    Doo ba badda Doo ba badda
    Doo ba badda Doo ba badda
    Doo ba badda Doo ba badda
    Doo ba badda Doo ba badda

    Bye Bye Baby
    Don't be long
    I Worry about you
    While you're Gone

    Bye Bye Baby
    Don't be long
    I Worry about you
    While you're Gone

    I think of you night and day
    I never know just what you meant, to say
    To say

    Doo ba badda Doo ba badda
    Doo ba badda Doo ba badda
    Doo ba badda Doo ba badda
    Doo ba badda Doo ba badda
    Doo ba badda Doo ba badda

    More of my favorite lyrics:

    Something, the Beatles (George Harrison)
    "Something in the way she moves
    Attracts me like no other lover
    Something in the way she woos me

    I don't want to leave her now
    You know I believe her now

    Somewhere in her smile she knows
    That I don't need no other lover
    Something in her style that shows me

    Don't want to leave her now
    You know I believe her now

    You're asking me will my love grow
    I don't know, I don't know
    You stick around now it may show
    I don't know, I don't know

    Something in the way she knows
    And all I have to do is think of her
    Something in the things she shows me

    Don't want to leave her now
    You know I believe her now"




    Dear Prudence, the Beatles (Lennon/McCartney)
    "Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play
    Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day
    The sun is up, the sky is blue
    It's beautiful and so are you
    Dear Prudence, won't you come out and play?

    Dear Prudence, open up your eyes
    Dear Prudence, see the sunny skies
    The wind is low the birds will sing
    That you are part of everything
    Dear Prudence, won't you open up your eyes?

    Look around round
    Look around round round
    Look around

    Dear Prudence, let me see you smile
    Dear Prudence, like a little child
    The clouds will be a daisy chain
    So let me see you smile again
    Dear Prudence, won't you let me see you smile?

    Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play
    Dear Prudence, and greet the brand new day
    The sun is up, the sky is blue
    It's beautiful and so are you
    Dear Prudence, won't you come out and play?"

    Is it love tonight
    When everyone's dreaming
    Of a better life
    In this world
    Divided by fear
    We've gotta believe that
    There's a reason we're here
    Yeah, there's a reason we're here

    'Cause these are the days worth livin'
    These are the years we're given
    And these are the moments
    These are the times
    Let's make the best out of our lives

    See the truth all around
    Our faith can be broken
    And our hands can be bound
    But open our hearts and fill up the emptiness
    With nothing to stop us
    Is it not worth the risk?
    Yeah, is it not worth the risk?

    'Cause these are the days worth livin'
    These are the years we're given
    And these are the moments
    These are the times
    Let's make the best out of our lives
    Even if hope was shattered
    I know it wouldn't matter
    'Cause these are the moments
    These are the times
    Let's make the best out of our lives

    We can't go on
    Thinking it's wrong
    To speak our minds
    I've gotta let out what's inside

    Is it love tonight
    When everyone's dreaming
    Can we get it right?
    Yeah, well can we get it right?

    'Cause these are the days worth livin'
    These are the years we're given
    And these are the moments
    These are the times
    Let's make the best out of our lives
    Even if hope was shattered
    I know it wouldn't matter
    These are the moments
    These are the times
    Let's make the best out of our lives

    "Our Lives"

    BTW - I should mention, in the wake of so many Beatles posts, that I don't think they have any bad songs and so it is impossible for me to pick out any - they are all wonderful.


    You're a Better Man Than I by Sham 69

    Can you judge a man by the way he wears his hair
    Can you read his mind by the clothes that he wears
    Can you see a fat man by the pattern on his tie

    Then mister you're a better man than I
    Mister you're a better man than I

    Could you tell a wise man by the way he speaks or spells
    Is this more important than the stories that he tells
    And call a man a fool if for wealth he doesn't strive

    Then mister you're a better man than I
    Mister you're a better man than I

    Can you condemn a man if your faith he doesn't hold
    Say the colour of his skin is the colour of his soul
    Can you say that men for king and country all must die

    Then mister you're a better man than I
    Mister you're a better man than I
