Brick by Ben Folds Five. Not because of the lyrics, (though they are melancholy) but because I had my heart plucked from my chest and consumed by a she-devil while it was playing on the radio. That one hurt.

The Luckiest-Ben Folds

i don't get many things right the first time

in fact, i am told that a lot

now i know all the wrong times,

the stumbles and falls

brought me here

and where was i before the day

that i first saw your lovely face?

now i see it everyday, and i know...

(Chorus)

that i am, i am

i am the luckiest

what if i'd been born 50 years before you

in a house on the street where you lived

maybe i'd be outside as you passed on your bike

would i know?

and in a wide sea of eyes

i see one pair that i recognize

and i know...

(Chorus)

i love you more than i have ever found a way to say to you

next door there's an old man,

who lived to his 90s and one day

passed away in his sleep

and his wife, she stayed for a couple of days

and passed away

i'm sorry i know that's a strange way to tell you that i know we belong

that i know...

(Chorus)

That song chokes me up everytime.

IT'S A HAPPY TEARYNESS...

RIPPLE

By The Grateful Dead

If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine

And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung,

Would you hear my voice come thru the music,

Would you hold it near as it were your own?

Its a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken,

Perhaps they're better left unsung.

I don't know, don't really care

Let there be songs to fill the air.

Ripple in still water,

When there is no pebble tossed,

Nor wind to blow.

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty,

If your cup is full may it be again,

Let it be known there is a fountain,

That was not made by the hands of men.

There is a road, no simple highway,

Between the dawn and the dark of night,

And if you go no one may follow,

That path is for your steps alone.

Ripple in still water,

When there is no pebble tossed,

Nor wind to blow.

You who choose

to lead

must follow

But if you fall

you fall alone

If you should stand then who's to guide you?

If I knew the way I would take you home.

La dee da da da,

la da da da da,

da da da, da da,

da da da da da

La da da da,

la da da, da da,

la da da da,

la da, da da.

It’s undeniable that we should be together

It’s unbelievable, how I used to say that I’d fall never

The basis is need to know

If you just don’t know how I feel

Then let me show you that now I’m for real

If all the things in time, time will reveal

Yeah

1 - one, you’re like a dream come true

Two, just wanna be with you

Three, girl it’s plain to see

That you’re the only one for me and

Four, repeat steps one through three

Five, make you fall in love with me

If ever I believe my work is done

Then I’ll start back at one

(yeah)

It’s so incredible, the way things work themselves out

And all emotional, once you know what it’s all about, hey

And undesirable, for us to be apart

I never would’ve made it very far

’cause you know you got the keys to my heart

’cause...

Repeat 1

Say farewell to the dark of night

I see the coming of the sun

I feel like a little child, whose life has just begun

You came and breathed new life into this lonely heart of mine

You threw out the life line

Just in the nick of time

Repeat 1 to fade

Can't forget about "Brokedown Palace," by the Grateful Dead-- another good one that gets me every time.

target="_blank

Fare you well, my honey, fare you well my only true one.

All the birds that were singing are flown, except you alone.

Going to leave this brokedown palace,

On my hand and knees, I will roll, roll, roll.

Make myself a bed by the waterside,

In my time, in my time, I will roll, roll roll.

In a bed, in a bed, by the waterside I will lay my head.

Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul.

River going to take me, sing sweet and sleepy,

Sing me sweet and sleepy all the way back home.

It's a far gone lullaby, sung many years ago.

Mama, Mama, many worlds I've come since I first left home.

Goin' home, goin' home, by the riverside I will rest my bones,

Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul.

Going to plant a weeping willow,

On the banks green edge it will grow, grow, grow.

Sing a lullaby beside the water,

Lovers come and go, the river roll, roll, roll.

Fare you well, fare you well, I love you more than words can tell,

Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul.

I love this song, because he is doing a selfless thing by saving her from his bad tendencies and he thinks he's holding her back. I think he more hates himself than anything else. Self hate is really hard to get over. *sobs* and she loves him because she sees his potential, and he's outright rejecting her, and doesn't understand why.. *sobs more*

Hate me .. by Blue October

[message on voicemail:] Hi Justin! This is your mother. It is 2:33 on Monday afternoon. I was just calling to see how you were doing. You sounded really uptight last night, it made me a little nervous, and a little, well it made me nervous, but it sounded like you were nervous too. I just want to make sure you are really okay and wanted to see if you were checking in on your medication too. You know I love ya and take care honey. I know you're under a lot of pressure. See ya. Bye Bye!

I have to block out thoughts of you so I don’t lose my head

They crawl in like a cockroach leaving babies in my bed

Dropping little reels of tape to remind me that I’m alone

Playing movies in my head that make a porno feel like home

There's a burning in my pride, a nervous bleeding in my brain

An ounce of peace is all I want for you. Will you never call again?

And will you never say that you loved me just to put it in my face?

And will you never try to reach me? It is I that wanted space

Hate me today

Hate me tomorrow

Hate me for all the things I didn’t do for you

Hate me in ways

Yeah ways hard to swallow

Hate me so you can finally see what’s good for you

I’m sober now for 3 whole months it’s one accomplishment that you helped me with

The one thing that always tore us apart is the one thing I won’t touch again

In my sick way I want to thank you for holding my head up late at night

While I was busy waging wars on myself, you were trying to stop the fight

You never doubted my warped opinions on things like suicidal hate

You made me compliment myself when it was way too hard to take

So I’ll drive so fucking far away that I never cross your mind

And do whatever it takes in your heart to leave me behind

Hate me today

Hate me tomorrow

Hate me for all the things I didn’t do for you

Hate me in ways

Yeah ways hard to swallow

Hate me so you can finally see what’s good for you

And with a sad heart I say bye to you and wave

Kicking shadows on the street for every mistake that I had made

And like a baby boy I never was a man

Until I saw your blue eyes cry and I held your face in my hand

And then I fell down yelling “Make it go away!”

Just make a smile come back and shine just like it used to be

And then she whispered “How can you do this to me?”

Hate me today

Hate me tomorrow

Hate me for all the things I didn’t do for you

Hate me in ways

Yeah ways hard to swallow

Hate me so you can finally see what’s good for you

For you

For you

For you

The wording really makes me think he is talking to his Generational Peer Group...I see it as Prophetic...

...about their children...(most of us fit in to that category)...

David Bowie

Wake up you sleepy head

Put on some clothes, shake up your bed

Put another log on the fire for me

Ive made some breakfast and coffee

Look out my window what do I see

A crack in the sky and a hand reaching down to me

All the nightmares came today

And it looks as though theyre here to stay

What are we coming to

No room for me, no fun for you

I think about a world to come

Where the books were found by the golden ones

Written in pain, written in awe

By a puzzled man who questioned

What we were here for

All the strangers came today

And it looks as though theyre here to stay

Oh you pretty things (oh you pretty things)

Dont you know youre driving your

Mamas and papas insane

Oh you pretty things (oh you pretty things)

Dont you know youre driving your

Mamas and papas insane

Let me make it plain

You gotta make way for the homo superior

Look at your children

See their faces in golden rays

Dont kid yourself they belong to you

Theyre the start of a coming race

The earth is a bitch

Weve finished our news

Homo sapiens have outgrown their use

All the strangers came today

And it looks as though theyre here to stay

Oh you pretty things (oh you pretty things)

Dont you know youre driving your

Mamas and papas insane

Oh you pretty things (oh you pretty things)

Dont you know youre driving your

Mamas and papas insane

Let me make it plain

You gotta make way for the homo superior

Have You Ever Seen The Rain - Creedence Clearwater Revival

Someone told me long ago

There's a calm before the storm,

I know!

It's been comin' for sometime.

When it's over so they say

It'll rain on a sunny day,

I know!

Shining down like water!

I wanna know: have you ever seen the rain?

I wanna know: have you ever seen the rain

Comin' down on a sunny day

Yesterday and days before

Sun is cold and rain is hot,

I know!

Been that way for all my time.

Till forever on it goes

Thru the circle fast and slow,

I know

It can't stop I wonder!

I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain?

I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain

Comin' down on a sunny day?

YEAHHHHH!

I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain?

I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain

Comin' down on a sunny day?

It's odd.. but..

Aenima by Tool

Some say the end is near.

Some say we'll see armageddon soon.

I certainly hope we will.

I sure could use a vacation from this

Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of

Freaks

Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA

The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.

Any fucking time. Any fucking day.

Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Fret for your figure and

Fret for your latte and

Fret for your lawsuit and

Fret for your hairpiece and

Fret for your prozac and

Fret for your pilot and

Fret for your contract and

Fret for your car.

It's a

Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of

Freaks

Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA

The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.

Any fucking time. Any fucking day.

Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Some say a comet will fall from the sky.

Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.

Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still.

Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipshits.

Some say the end is near.

Some say we'll see armageddon soon.

I certainly hope we will cuz

I sure could use a vacation from this

Stupid shit, silly shit, stupid shit...

One great big festering neon distraction,

I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied.

Learn to swim.

Learn to swim.

Learn to swim.

Mom is going to fix it all soon,

Mom is coming round to put it back

the way it oughtta be...

Learn to swim.

Fuck L Ron Hubbard and

Fuck all his clones.

Fuck all these gun-toting

Hip gangster wannabes.

Learn to swim.

Fuck retro anything.

Fuck your tattoos.

Fuck all you junkies and

Fuck your short memory.

Learn to swim.

Fuck smiley glad-hands

With hidden agendas.

Fuck these dysfunctional,

Insecure actresses.

Learn to swim.

Cuz I'm praying for rain

And I'm praying for tidal waves

I wanna see the ground give way.

I wanna watch it all go down.

Mom please flush it all away.

I wanna see it go right in and down.

I wanna watch it go right in.

Watch you flush it all away.

Time to bring it down again.

Don't just call me pessimist.

Try and read between the lines.

I can't imagine why you wouldn't

Welcome any change, my friend.

I wanna see it all come down.

suck it down.

flush it down.

Dreams Come True, by Hammerfall

Never thought I'd feel again, feel the darkness fade and see the morning sun arise

Never thought I'd feel alive again, senses dull and blunt from all the lies

Now, when I hold your face so close to mine

I see a place where the sun will shine, with you in it's divine

Looking down into those eyes, I know, I'll be lost and never found again.

Kiss me once and I will surely melt and die,

kiss me twice and I will never leave your side ! (if) Dreams Come True

Do I dare to trust this time?

Ooh, the Bells of Fortune, will I ever hear them chime?

Only those who have been burned before

truly know the meaning of Hell's flaming core

I was the brooding night and you were dawn.

Saving me, for I was forlorn, in your light I am reborn.

Looking down into those eyes, I know, I'll be lost and never found again.

Kiss me once and I will surely melt and die,

kiss me twice and I will never leave your side?(if) Dreams Come True

Then, when the walls are breaking down on us, when all we see is misery

will you still believe in me?

Looking down into those eyes, I know, I'll be lost and never found again.

Kiss me once and I will surely melt and die,

kiss me twice and I will never leave your side,

until the sign of winter, always by your side....

(Dreams Come True)

---

One day I WILL feel this... or I'll die trying!

Queensryche's "Silent Lucidity"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQkwFtYqPjU

Hush now dont cry

Wipe away the teardrop from your eye

Youre 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?

Theres a place I like to hide

A doorway that I run to in the night

Relax child, you were there

But only didnt realize it and you were scared

Its a place where you will learn

To face your fears, retrace the tears

And ride the whims of your mind

Commanding in another world

Suddenly, you hear and see

This magic new dimension

Chorus

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 wont rely on open eyes to see

The walls you built within

Come tumblng down, and a new world will begin

Living twice at once you learn

You7re safe froom 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 dreams alive, you can be the guide but...

Raining in Balitmore- CC

This circus is falling down on its knees

The big top is crumbling down

Its raining in baltimore fifty miles east

Where you should be, no ones around

I need a phone call

I need a raincoat

I need a big love

I need a phone call

These train conversations are passing me by

And I dont have nothing to say

You get what you pay for

But I just had no intention of living this way

I need a phone call

I need a plane ride

I need a sunburn

I need a raincoat

And I get no answers

And I dont get no change

Its raining in baltimore, baby

But everything else is the same

Theres things I remember and things I forget

I miss you I guess that I should

Three thousand five hundred miles away

But what would you change if you could?

I need a phone call

Maybe I should buy a new car

I can always hear a freight train if I listen real hard

And I wish it was a small world

Because Im lonely for the big towns

Id like to hear a little guitar

I think its time to put the top down

I need a phone call

I need a raincoat

Edit to say: it make me sad when I hear it but SUPER sad when I sing it. I wish I knew how to play piano. ::sigh::

Walking in Memphis, by Marc Cohen

Put on my blue suede shoes

And I boarded the plane

Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues

In the middle of the pouring rain

W.C. Handy -- won't you look down over me

Yeah I got a first class ticket

But I'm as blue as a boy can be

Then I'm walking in Memphis

Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale

Walking in Memphis

But do I really feel the way I feel

Saw the ghost of Elvis

On Union Avenue

Followed him up to the gates of Graceland

Then I watched him walk right through

Now security they did not see him

They just hovered 'round his tomb

But there's a pretty little thing

Waiting for the King

Down in the Jungle Room

(Chorus)

They've got catfish on the table

They've got gospel in the air

And Reverend Green be glad to see you

When you haven't got a prayer

But boy you've got a prayer in Memphis

Now Muriel plays piano

Every Friday at the Hollywood

And they brought me down to see her

And they asked me if I would --

Do a little number

And I sang with all my might

And she said --

"Tell me are you a Christian child?"

And I said "Ma'am I am tonight"

(Chorus)

Put on my blue suede shoes

And I boarded the plane

Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues

In the middle of the pouring rain

Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues

In the middle of the pouring rain

Can still see the light, by Fumie Kumatani

Wish for peace

Wish for dreams.

Wish for love....

you are gone, without saying goodbye....

Starry sky...I can still see the light you saved, and I think of you tonight.

Soon, the dawn will come again, what have I got, what has it cost me?

I can feel you are near...within me, outer space, here and there.

Tell me please, how much we have to bleed when we'll get the land of dreams

after lonely bitter days....

Now I can still see the light you saved, and I think of you tonight.

Soon, the dawn will come again, but what have I got, what has it cost me?

Why can I still see the light you saved, though you are now out of sight?

Soon, the dawn will come again, but what have I got, what has it cost me?

Skin - Alexz Johnson

I drift away to a place

Another kind of life

Take away the pain

I create my paradise

Everything I've held

Has hit the wall

What used to be yours

Isn't yours at all

Falling apart, and all that I'm asking

Is it a crime, am I overreacting

Oh, he's under my skin

Just give me something to get rid of him

I've got a reason now to bury this alive

Another little white lie

So what you had didn't fit

Among the pretty things

Never fear, never fear

I now know where you've been

Braids have been un-tied

Ribbons fall away

Leave the consequence

My tears you'll taste

Falling apart and all that I question

Is this a dream or is this my lesson

Oh, he's under my skin

Just give me something to get rid of him

I've got a reason now to bury this alive

Another little white lie

I don't believe I'll be alright

I don't believe I'll be ok

I don't believe how you throw me away

I do believe you didn't try

I do blame you for every lie

When I look in your eyes, I don't see mine

Oh, he's under my skin

Just give me something to get rid of him

I've got a reason now to bury this alive

Another little white lie

Oh my permission to sin

You might have started my reckoning

I've got a reason now to bury him alive

Another little white lie.......

Buenas Tardes Amigo... by Ween

Buenas tardes amigo

Hola, my good friend

Cinco de mayos on tuesday

And I hoped wed see each other again

You killed my brother last winter

You shot him three times in the back

In the night I still hear mama weeping

Oh mama, still dresses in black

I looked at every fiesta

For you I wanted to greet

Maybe Id sell you a chicken

With poison interlaced with the meat

You... you look like my brother

Mama loved him the best

He was head honcho with the ladies

Mama always said he was blessed

The village all gathered around him

They couldnt believe what they saw

I said it was you that had killed him

And that Id find you and upstand the law

The people of the village believed me

Mama... she wanted revenge

I told her Id see that she was honored

Id find you and put you to death

So now... now that Ive found you

On this such a joyous day

I tell you it was me who killed him

But the truth Ill never have to say

Buenas tardes amigo

Hola, my good friend

because this one makes me think of my loved ones that passed exspecially one person in paticular.

Angel by sarah mclachlan

Spend all your time waiting

for that second chance

for a break that would make it okay

there's always one reason

to feel not good enough

and it's hard at the end of the day

I need some distraction

oh beautiful release

memory seeps from my veins

let me be empty

and weightless and maybe

I'll find some peace tonight

in the arms of an angel

fly away from here

from this dark cold hotel room

and the endlessness that you fear

you are pulled from the wreckage

of your silent reverie

you're in the arms of the angel

may you find some comfort there

so tired of the straight line

and everywhere you turn

there's vultures and thieves at your back

and the storm keeps on twisting

you keep on building the lie

that you make up for all that you lack

it don't make no difference

escaping one last time

it's easier to believe in this sweet madness oh

this glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

in the arms of an angel

fly away from here

from this dark cold hotel room

and the endlessness that you fear

you are pulled from the wreckage

of your silent reverie

you're in the arms of the angel

may you find some comfort there

you're in the arms of the angel

may you find some comfort here

and this is just a beautiful song

trouble by coldplay

Oh no, I see,

A spider web is tangled up with me,

And I lost my head,

The thought of all the stupid things I said,

Oh no whats this?

A spider web, and Im caught in the middle,

So I turned to run,

The thought of all the stupid things Ive done,

I never meant to cause you trouble,

And I never meant to do you wrong,

And i, well if I ever caused you trouble,

Oh no, I never meant to do you harm.

Oh no I see,

A spider web and its me in the middle,

So I twist and turn,

Here I am in my little bubble,

Singing, I never meant to cause you trouble,

I never meant to do you wrong,

And i, well if I ever caused you trouble,

Oh no, I never meant to do you harm.

They spun a web for me,

They spun a web for me,

They spun a web for me.

Watching Over Me, by Iced Earth

I had a friend many years ago

One tragic night he died

The saddest time of my life

For weeks and weeks I cried

Through the anger and through the tears

I've felt his spirit through the years

I'd swear, He's watching me

Guiding me through hard times

I feel it once again

It's overwhelming me

His spirit's like the winds

The angel guarding me

Oh, I know, oh, I know

He's watching over me

Oh, I know, oh, I know

He's watching over me

We shared dreams like all best friends

Blood brothers at the age of ten

We lived reckless, he paid the price

But why? Why did he have to die?

It still hurts me to this day

Am I selfish for feeling this way?

I know he's an angel now

Together we'll be someday

I feel it once again

It's overwhelming me

His spirit's like the wind

The angel guarding me

Oh, I know, oh, I know

He's watching over me

Oh, I know, oh, I know

He's watching over me

If you seen the movie you know what I mean.

Dreaming of You by Selena:

Late at night when all the world is sleeping

I'd stay up and think of you

And I'd wish on a star

That somewhere you are thinking of me too

Cuz I'm dreaming of you tonight

Till tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight

And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be

Then here in my room,

Dreaming about you and me

Wonder if you even see me

And I wonder if you know I'm there

If you looked in my eyes

Would you see what's inside?

Would you even care?

I just wanna hold you close

But so far, all I have are dreams of you

So, I wait for the day and the courage to say

How much I love you(Yes, I do)

I'll be dreaming of you tonight

Till tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight

And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be

Then here in my room,

Dreaming about you and me

Ahhh...I can't stop dreaming of you

Ahhh...I can't stop dreamin

Late at night when all the world is sleeping

I'd stay up and think of you

And I still can't believe that you came up to me

And said, "I love you; I love you too"

Now I'm dreaming with you tonight

Till tomorrow, and for all of my life

And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be

Then here in my room,

Dreaming with you endlessly...
