Songs That Make You Think of Someone

106 posts in this topic

When I was pregnant with my son, I heard this one all of the time. Before I knew for sure, I knew he was a boy and this song just warmed my heart. I sing it to him when he can't fall asleep...

People smile and tell me i'm the lucky one, and we've just begun,

Think i'm gonna have a son.

He will be like she and me, as free as a dove, conceived in love,

Sun is gonna shine above.

Chorus:

And even though we ain't got money, i'm so in love with ya honey,

And everything will bring a chain of love.

And in the morning when i rise, you bring a tear of joy to my eyes,

And tell me everything is gonna be alright.

Seems as though a month ago i beta chi, never got high,

Oh, i was a sorry guy.

And now a smile, a face, a girl that shares my name,

Now i'm through with the game, this boy will never be the same.

(to chorus:)

Pisces, virgo rising is a very good sign, strong and kind,

And the little boy is mine.

Now i see a family where there once was none, now we've just begun,

Yeah, we're gonna fly to the sun.

(to chorus:)

Love the girl who holds the world in a paper cup, drink it up,

Love her and she'll bring you luck.

And if you find she helps your mind, buddy, take her home,

Don't you live alone, try to earn what lovers own.

(to chorus:)

Cranes: Driving in the Sun

We would go driving in the sun

Into a world where we were one

We'd close our eyes and we'd become

Free as the sun and moon that shone

And even when our love has gone

And time has moved us all along

And even when the shades have passed

And what we made has gone at last

Something goes on and on and on . . .

And though I know that things won't change

I remember all our days

Beautiful in many ways . . .

Guess I was searching for someone

I guess I thought you were the one

Cos I so wanted to belong

But now I know that I was wrong

But I believe that there was love

That fell between the two of us

And I believe the time we had

Was meant to be, but not to last . . .

And though I know that things

won't change

I remember all our days

Beautiful in many ways . . .

This one makes me think of my current situation:

Listen girl

Who do you think I am?

Don’t you know that he was my man?

But I chose to let him go

So why do you act like I still care about him?

Looking at me like I’m hurt

When I’m the one who said I didn’t want it to work

Don’t you forget I had him first?

1 – What you thinkin’?

Stop playing me

He wasn’t man enough for me

If you don’t know now here’s chance

I’ve already had your man

Do you wonder just where he’s been, yeah?

Not be worried about him

Now it’s time you know the truth

I think he’s just the man for you

2 - What are you thinking?

Do you know about us back them?

Do you know about your husband, girlfriend?

I’m not thinking ‘bout him

But you married him

Do you know I made him leave?

Do you know he begged to stay with me?

He wasn’t man enough for me

Listen girl

Didn’t he tell you the truth?

If not then why don’t you ask him?

The maybe you can be more into him

Instead of worrying about me

And hopefully you won’t find

All the reasons why his love didn’t count

And why we couldn’t work it out

Repeat 1

Repeat 2 (2x)

Oh yeah

So many reasons why are love is through, yeah

What makes you think he’ll be good to you, no

It makes no sense cause he will never change

Girl you better recognize the game, oh yeah

What are you thinking?

Do you know about us back them?

Do you know about your husband, girlfriend?

I’m not thinking ‘bout him

But you married him

You know I made him leave

And you know he begged to stay with me

He wasn’t man enough for me

Repeat 2 till end

He Wasn't Man Enough - Toni Braxton

After a fight with the asshole tonight I can't get this one out of my head...

Artist: avant

Album: My Thoughts

Title: separated

Everytime I see you I get a bad vibe,

just thinking of someone else in between your thighs,

and you thought you were slick, had tricks up you sleeve,

but I'm sick of your stupid ass and I know you're tired of me,

that's why I say

Chorus:

When we were together, we never turned our backs on each other

now that we're separated, we can't stand one another.

I don't wanna be with you put that on everything I own,

I can't believe I stayed around that damn long,

If I never see you again I won't be mad at all

Cause I believe that you are my downfall

Chorus:

( you did me wrong)

You did me wrong, I thought you were true

you ran out of my life and now, I'm so through with you.

I remember when you used to sit there,

I would wrap you in my arms and you would say to me,

Yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea

repeat previous

repeat chorus

Avant - Separated

Since I'm on my way to court for my first custody hearing I figured this was fitting:

Artist: Mary J. Blige

Album: Share My World (ltd Ed Double Lp)

Title: Not Gon' Cry

(vs.1)

While all the time that i was loving you

You were busy loving yourself

I would stop breathing if you told me to

Now you're busy loving someone else

Eleven years out of my life

Besides the kids i have nothing to show

Wasted my years a fool of a wife

I shoulda have left your ass a long time ago

(chorus)

Well i'm not gon cry,

I'm not gon cry,

I'm not gon shed no tears

No, i'm not gon cry,

It's not the time

Cuz you're not worth my tears

Well i'm not gon cry,

I'm not gon cry,

I'm not gon shed no tears

No, i'm not gon cry,

It's not the time,

Cuz you're not worth my tears

(vs.2)

I was your lover and your secretary

Working every day of the week

Was at the job when no one else was there

Helping you get on your feet

Eleven years of sacrifice

And you can leave at the drop of a dime

Swallowed my fears, stood by your side

I shoulda left your ass a thousand times

(chorus)

I know there are no guarantees

In love you take your chances

But somehow it seems unfair to me

Look at the circumstances

Through sickness and health 'till death do us part

Those were the words that we said from our hearts

So now when you say that you're leaving me

I don't get that part

(repeat vs.2)

(chorus)

oh this one makes me think of me: :p

india.arie

Video

Verse 1

Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don’t

Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won’t

Depend on how the wind blows I might even paint my toes

It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul

Chorus:

*I’m not the average girl from your video

And I ain't built like a supermodel

But I learned to love myself unconditionally

Because I am a queen

I’m not the average girl from your video

My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes

No matter what I’m wearing I will always be India.Arie*

Verse 2

When I look in the mirror and the only one there is me

Every freckle on my face is where it’s suppose to be

And I know my creator didn’t make no mistakes on me

My feet, my thighs, my lips, my eyes, I’m loving what I see

*Chorus*

Verse 3

Am I less of lady if I don’t wear panty hose

My momma said a lady ain’t what she wears but what she knows.

But I’ve drawn a conclusion, it’s all an illusion

Confusion’s the name of the game

A misconception, a vast deception, something got to change

Now don’t be offended this is all my opinion

Ain’t nothing that I’m saying law

This is a true confession

Of a life learned lesson

I was sent here to share with y’all

So get in when you fit in

Go on and shine

Clear your mind

Now’s the time

Put your salt on the shelf

Go on and love yourself

‘Cause everything’s gonna be alright

*Chorus*

Out

Keep your fancy drink, and your expensive minks

I don’t need that to have a good time

Keep your expensive cars and your caviar

All’s I need is my guitar

Keep your crystal and you pistol

I’d rather have a pretty piece of crystal

Don’t need your silicone, I prefer my own

What god gave me is just fine……

*Chorus*

This song always made me think of me...

she never mentions the word addiction

In certain company

Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan

After you meet her family

She paints her eyes as black as night, now

Pulls those shades down tight

Yeah, she gives a smile when the pain comes,

The pain's gonna make everything alright

Says she talks to angels,

They call her out by her name

She talks to angels,

Says they call her out by her name

She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket

She wears a cross around her neck

Yes, the hair is from a little boy

And the cross is someone she has not met, not yet

Says she talks to angels,

Says they all know her name

Oh yeah, she talks to angels,

Says they call her out by her name

She don't know no lover,

None that i ever seen

Yes, to her that ain't nothing

But to me, yeah me,

It's everything

She paints her eyes as black as night now

She pulls those shades down tight

Oh yeah, there's a smile when the pain comes,

The pain's gonna make everything alright, alright yeah

She talks to angels,

Says they call her out by her name

Oh yeah, yeah, angels

Call her out by her name

Oh, angels

They call her out by her name

Oh, she talks to angels

They call her out

Yeah, they call her out

Don't you know that they call her out by her name

Black Crowes - She Talkes to Angels

Damn you ladies! I was gonna be all clever and post a song that reminded me of me. I should have done it this morning when I had the idea. Oh well, I'm slow.

At any rate, this song reminds me of me:

The Cure: A Letter to Elise

Oh elise it doesn't matter what you say

i just can't stay here every yesterday

like keep on acting out the same

the way we act out

every way to smile

forget

and make-believe we never needed

any more than this

any more than this

oh elise it doesn't matter what you do

i know i'll never really get inside of you

to make your eyes catch fire

the way they should

the way the blue could pull me in

if they only would

if they only would

at least i'd lose this sense of sensing something else

that hides away

from me and you

there're worlds to part

with aching looks and breaking hearts

and all the prayers your hands can make

oh i just take as much as you can throw

and then throw it all away

oh i throw it all away

like throwing faces at the sky

like throwing arms round

yesterday

i stood and stared

wide-eyed in front of you

and the face i saw looked back

the way i wanted to

but i just can't hold my tears away

the way you do

elise believe i never wanted this

i thought this time i'd keep all of my promises

i thought you were the girl always dreamed about

but i let the dream go

and the promises broke

and the make-believe ran out...

oh elise

it doesn't matter what you say

i just can't stay here every yesterday

like keep on acting out the same

the way we act out

every way to smile

forget

and make-believe we never needed

any more than this

any more than this

and every time i try to pick it up

like falling sand

as fast as i pick it up

it runs away through my clutching hands

but there's nothing else i can really do

there's nothing else

i can really do

at all...

Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London" always makes me think of my friend Goldenrod. She loved the song and had a strange crush on Zevon.

I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand

Walking through the streets of Soho in the rain

He was looking for the place called Lee Ho Fook's

Going to get a big dish of beef chow mein

Werewolves of London

If you hear him howling around your kitchen door

Better not let him in

Little old lady got mutilated late last night

Werewolves of London again

Werewolves of London

He's the hairy handed gent who ran amuck in Kent

Lately he's been overheard in Mayfair

Better stay away from him

He'll rip your lungs out, Jim

I'd like to meet his tailor

Werewolves of London

Well, I saw Lon Chaney walking with the Queen

Doing the werewolves of London

I saw Lon Chaney, Jr. walking with the Queen

Doing the werewolves of London

I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's

His hair was perfect

Werewolves of London again

Draw blood

And since he listened to the song so damn much, Soul Coughing's "Super Bon Bon" is inextricably linked to my friend Bill.

Move upside

And let the man go through.

Let the man go through.

If I stole

Somebody else’s wave

To fly up.

If I rose

Up with the avenue

Behind me.

Some kind of verb.

Some kind of moving thing.

Something unseen.

Some hand is motioning

To rise, to rise, to rise.

Too fat, fat you must cut lean.

You got to take the elevator to the mezzanine,

Chump, change, and it’s on, super bon bon

Super bon bon, super bon bon.

And by

The phone

I live

In fear

Sheer chance

Will draw

You in

To here.

Makes me think of my dad...he dedicated it to my mom when they were fighting.

Woman i can hardly express

My mixed emotions at my thoughtlessness

After all i'm forever in your debt

And woman i will try to express

My inner feelings and thankfulness

For showing me the meaning of success

Ooh, well, well

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

Ooh, well, well

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

Woman i know you understand

The little child inside of the man

Please remember my life is in your hands

And woman hold me close to your heart

However distant don't keep us apart

After all it is written in the stars

Ooh, well, well

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

Ooh, well, well

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

Well

Woman please let me explain

I never meant to cause you sorrow or pain

So let me tell you again and again and again

I love you, yeah, yeah

Now and forever

I love you, yeah, yeah

Now and forever

I love you, yeah, yeah

Now and forever

I love you, yeah, yeah

I have a number of songs that remind me of Laura. Many of which were "Laura's songs" that she kind of introduced me to. Others are tracks that have long stories and relate to me personally in a variety of ways, but became very poignant after she died. I'll post two of them here now:

Coil's "Where are you?" :

"Where are you?

Are you hiding from me?

Are you still looking for things that no-one else can see?

Where are you?

Are you in some place that we cannot reach?

Are you bathing in moonlight or drowned on the beach?

Where are you?

Are you surrounded by things we cannot penetrate?

Is the cage you love the home you also hate?

Your fear of death attracts such strange objects

Smothering you, hiding you, don't let it spoil you

Show yourself so the others may see you

So the others may feed you

They want to be near you

If you can't get enough of your hypnotic injection

Then it's time to put an end to this invalid function

Poor little ghost boy

Let me be your human toy

Where are you?

No-one's seen you for years

Have your wounds grown wings? Are you feasting on fears?

I can see your dark corona is eating into you

You're surrounded by things we cannot penetrate

Is the cage you love the home you also hate?

Life lies with the scissors inside her

The surgeon was a butcher

All of us are wounded, anaesthetised in A&E

Numbed by stuff we should not see

Each of us lies bleeding

Our rivers intermingling

Poor little ghost boy

Let me be your human toy

I'll wrap my last kiss in a bandage

Current 93, untitled from "Soft Black Stars" :

i had gathered some flowers

to lay upon your face

though you were not gone

from the realm of the quick

i saw all the rainclouds

being driven on forward

by horses long numbered

and featureless and free

and i wanted to call you a wife

though i couldn't stop glancing at the signs

and the four heads of men

and all that they carried

and the four wombs of women

and all that they promised

and i wanted to write for you

songs poems and bibles

your face spotted with pearls

and hand-cuffed to Christ

but i couldn't stop watching the signs

i had seen the news

that the Trojan beast

already and not yet

no longer near

nor close at hand

nor at the door

is finally here

the great in the small

and i couldn't stop watching the signs in the stars

Queensryche's "Silent Lucidity" always makes me think about my daughter and how much I miss her.

Hush now, don't you cry

Wipe away the teardrop from your eye

You're lying safe in bed

It was all a bad dream

Spinning in your head

Your mind tricked you to feel the pain

Of someone close to you leaving the game of life

So here it is, another chance

Wide awake you face the day

Your dream is over... or has it just begun?

There's a place I like to hide

A doorway that I run through in the night

Relax child, you were there

But only didn't realize it and you were scared

It's a place where you will learn

To face your fears, retrace the years

And ride the whims of your mind

Commanding in another world

Suddenly you hear and see

This magic new dimension

I- will be watching over you

I- am gonna help you see it through

I- will protect you in the night

I- am smiling next to you, in Silent Lucidity

If you open your mind for me

You won't rely on open eyes to see

The walls you built within

Come tumbling down, and a new world will begin

Living twice at once you learn

You're safe from the pain in the dream domain

A soul set free to fly

A round trip journey in your head

Master of illusion, can you realize

Your dream's alive, you can be the guide but...

I- will be watching over you

I- am gonna help to see it through

I- will protect you in the night

I- am smiling next to you....

"I Was Wrong" by Social Distortion reminds me of when DarkArt25 and myself would be hanging out in Kalamazoo and trying to figure out what the hell we were doing with our lives and where everything went wrong.

Ah, the joys of angst and being 20.

I WAS WRONG - Social Distortion

when i was young,

i was so full of fear

i hid behind anger,

held back the tears

it was me against the world,

i was sure that i'd win

the world fought back,

punished me for my sins

i felt so alone,

so insecure,

i blamed you instead

and made sure i was heard

and they tried to warn me of my evil ways

but i couldn't hear what they had to say

chorus:

i was wrong,

self destruction's got me again

i was wrong,

i realized now that i was wrong

and i think about my loves,

well i've had a few

i'm sorry that i hurt them,

did i hurt you too?

i took what i wanted,

put my heart on the shelf

how can ya love me

when you don't love yourself

it was me against the world,

i was sure that i'd win

the world fought back,

punished me for my sins

and they tried to warn me of my evil ways

but i couldn't hear what they had to say

:chorus:

i grew up fast, i grew up hard

something was wrong from the very start

i was fighting everybody, i was fighting everything

but the only one that i hurt was me

i got society's blood running down my face

somebody help me get outta this place

how could someone's bad luck last so long

until i realized that i was wrong

:chorus: 2x:

another song that makes me think of me ;)

blind melon

no rain

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain

I like watchin' the puddles gather rain

And all I can do is just pour some tea for two

and speak my point of view

But it's not sane, It's not sane

I just want someone to say to me oh,oh, oh, oh

I'll always be there when you wake

Ya know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today

So stay with me and I'll have it made

And I don't understand why I sleep all day

And I start to complain that there's no rain

And all I can do is read a book to stay awake

And it rips my life away, but it's a great escape

escape......escape......escape......

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain

ya don't like my point of view

ya think I'm insane

Its not sane......it's not sane.

I just want someone to say to me oh, oh, oh

I'll always be there when you wake

Ya know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today

So stay with me and I'll have it made

(I'll have it made

I'll have it made

You know we're really gonna, really gonna have it made

Gonna have it made

I know it sounds ugly, but Big Dumb Sex by Soundgarden reminds me of certain things with a certain someone............hehehehehe :devil:

Don't you don't you want to thrill me

Don't you be afraid to tell me

Tell me if you think it's ugly

But now don't you want to touch it anyway

I've been looking for a reject

And you ain't had nothing like me yet

Don't you think it's time for motion

When it's on the tip of your tongue

Don't you don't you want to thrill me

Don't you be afraid to tell me

Tell me if you think it's ugly

But now don't you want to touch it anyway

Hey I know what to do

This song makes me think about a lot of my friends I've lost to over-doses. Maybe I should start working on the "Heroin" themed CD again....

Wolfsheim - Heroin, She Said

walking down the streets at night

i see her stumbling through the rain

a skinny figure in the dark

her face a shade of grey

begging here and barking there

shes swearing all the time

her fingers fumbling with her hair

a dirty mess of grime

and she starts to cry and shes asking why

her lifes always the same

but she does not see, that unfortunately

theres no one here to blame

"heroin" she said, "was the best i had...

no more mountains left to climb.

the world so slow... all my dreams just too high

to be fulfilled in time...!"

she grabs my arm... and i feel alarmed

her fingers gripping tight

i see her pleading eyes... so i start to diguise

and say, that everythings alright...

and the reason why i pretended and lied

is that i dont want to kill

the poor dream thats left in the deepest cleft

of the thing that she calls will...!

"heroin" she said...

God Bav, I remember those days up at the old "Western Campus", just sitting up and looking out over the city. Look where we are now.

Another song that makes me think of people from my past is Northernstar by Lucia Cifarelli from KMFDM. It reminds me of the girl I was with before I moved back to Kalamazoo and met my wife.

Sometimes I wonder what she's doing now.

Here I am, I’m in the wrong bed again

It’s a game I just can’t win

There you are breathin’ soft on my skin, yeah

Still you won’t let me in

So come on

Why save your kisses for a rainy day

Baby let the moment take your heart away

Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah

Have you ever wanted someone you just couldn’t have

Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart

Have you ever needed someone so bad

And you’re the girl I gotta have

I gotta have you baby, yeah

There you go, midnight promises again, yeah

But they’re broken by the dawn

You wanna go further, faster everyday, baby

But in the morning you’ll be gone

And I’m alone

Why save your kisses for a rainy day

Baby let the moment take your heart away

Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah

Have you ever wanted someone you just couldn’t have

Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart

Have you ever needed someone so bad

Every dream I dream is like

Some kinda rash ’n’ reckless scene

To give out such crazy love

You must be some kinda drug

And if my time don’t ever come

For me you’re still the one

Damned if I don’t, damned if I do

I gotta get a fix on you

Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah

Have you ever wanted someone you just couldn’t have

Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart

Have you ever needed someone so bad, so bad

Have you ever wanted someone, have you ever wanted someone, yeah

Did you ever try so hard that your wourld just fell apart

Have you ever needed someone so bad

And you’re the girl I gotta have

I gotta have you baby, yeah

It’s a game I just can’t win, oh

Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah

Have you ever wanted someone

Have you ever wanted someone, you just couldn’t have

Did you ever tried so hard, yeah

These lyrics are a bit reflective.....this song brings back memories I thought I'd forgotten. The song is called Frozen

You only see what your eyes want to see

How can life be what you want it to be

You're frozen

When your heart's not open

You're so consumed with how much you get

You waste your time with hate and regret

You're broken

When your heart's not open

Chorus:

Mmmmmm, if I could melt your heart

Mmmmmm, we'd never be apart

Mmmmmm, give yourself to me

Mmmmmm, you hold the key

Now there's no point in placing the blame

And you should know I suffer the same

If I lose you

My heart will be broken

Love is a bird, she needs to fly

Let all the hurt inside of you die

You're frozen

When your heart's not open

(chorus)

(verse)

(chorus, repeat)

If I could melt your heart
