rootless tree - damien rice [19 Jul 2007|12:16am]

staccatobridge
what i want from you
is empty your head
they say be true,
don't stain your bed
we do what we need to be free
and it leans on me
like a rootless tree
what i want from us
is empty our minds
we fake a fuss
and fracture the times
we go blind
when we've needed to see
and this leans on me
like a rootless...

so fuck you
and all we've been through
i said leave it
it's nothing to you
and if you hate me
then hate me so good that you can let me out
let me out of this hell when you're around

what i want from this
is learn to let go
no not of you
of all that's been told
killers reinvent and believe
and this leans on me
like a rootless...

so fuck you
and all we've been through
i said leave it
it's nothing to you
and if you hate me
then hate me so good that you can let me out
let me out of this hell when you're around
let me out...
and fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
and all we've been through
i said leave it
it's nothing to you
and if you hate me
then hate me so good that you can let me out
let me out...
it's hell when you're around
sing your heart out

Gob- Cold Feet [03 Feb 2006|01:37pm]

lookatthe_stars
my toes were cold, and i though of this:

I follow your friends around, I'm searching from town to town.
I never knew what you meant to me, until you were lost and found.
I never get up for daytime, and I only go out at night.
There's so much I have to say to you, I'm gonna get it right this time.

My Love, come to me, come around I'm lonely.

Have socks I can smell you on them, I guess you must have forgot them.
I wear them when I'm cold sometimes, I'm wearing them all the time.
I'm thinking of heading south, bittersweet memories of your mouth.
Remembering what you said to me, you'll never get cold feet now.

My Love, come to me, come around I'm lonely.

I follow your friends around, I'm searching from town to town.
I never knew what you meant to me, until you were lost and found.

Dirty Love - Division of Laura Lee [24 Jan 2006|11:06pm]

___dirtylove
hey you
another trip on the ghostship
another easy trick for a steel kiss
hey love doesn't make much sense but it's all the same
do I bore you
more dirty love
sit back and cry
as your world dies
I hate to watch you blocking all the exits
turning in to a ghost
what can I do to get you off the dancefloor
hey you
a clean hit on a sinking ship
another easy fix
final chance to really exist
hey love
to want more than the last kiss
do i bore you
more dirty love
go try your luck
cause your world sucks
I hate to watch you blocking all the exits
turning in to a ghost
what can I do to get you off the dancefloor
dirty love
sing your heart out

Billy - Bad Religion [13 Jan 2006|11:41pm]

___dirtylove
I can recall the warm youth of a summer day, yeah:
The sweetest lemonade, the darkest game arcade,
And Billy had a yearning in the corner of his mind.
It moved him secretly. It moved him powerfully.
But prescience was lacking and the present was not all
And his aptitudes were carelessly wasted.
And challenging life with the abandon of a fool,
He squandered the hours of his day.
Then darkness and disorder slapped him sharply in the face, yeah.
It hit him like a friend, struck something deep within.
He couldn't break the chain of slow decay that seemed to drag him
Just like a fatal tie toward the other side.
And Billy was a lunatic, just barking at the moon,
And his brain was totally wasted.
He then exchanged his friends for a needle and a spoon
And he threw his future away.
Bolt the door and throw away the key.
Your dim reflection is all that you can see.
So where is the justice when no one is at fault
And a human life is tragically wasted?
How fragile is the flame that burns within us all
To light each passing day?
sing your heart out

You Know - The Damned [25 Dec 2005|02:07am]

___dirtylove
You've got your plastic cards
But you can't create
You've got your open bars
But you can't relate
Pretty as a mirror
Ugly as your smile
You won't fool anybody
Not even for a while

You know you know
You know honey you know
You know you know
You know you know

Can't stop thinkin' of you
All the ways you go on
Don't try to tell me baby
All your plastic has gone
You know we need your honey
Like I need a loan
Your time is running out now
Unless we're really on a go

Well you know you know
You know yes you know
You know you know
You know you know

You know you know
You know honey

You've got your plastic cards
But you can't create
You're got your open bars
But you can't relate
Pretty as a mirror
Ugly as your smile
You won't fool anybody
Not even for a while

You know why
You know you know
You know honey you know
You know you know
You know you know
You know you know

Hover - Trust Company [19 Dec 2005|05:13pm]

___dirtylove
You take me down, further inside of me
Now I'm fading out, I can barely see
I hover

To see you leave again, it's over
And it kills me to watch you descend, to the end

Can't think straight
Shutting me out - closing me out
Are you trying - hurting
Taking me out - leaving me out
Keeps me struggling
You're leaving

You take me down, further inside of me
Now I'm fading out, I can barely see
I hover

to see you caving in, I'm undone
And to say it's the last time again
It's the end

Can't think straight
Shutting me out - closing me out
Are you trying - hurting
Taking me out - leaving me out
Keeps me struggling
I'm leaving

You take me down, further inside of me
Now I'm fading out, I can barely see
I hover

I'm watching you descend
I'm hovering instead
I'm watching you descend
I'm hovering instead

You take me down, further inside
Now I can see through you

You take me down, further inside of me
Now I'm fading out, I can barely see
I hover
I hover
I hover
I hover – again
sing your heart out

Cover Me - Mae [17 Dec 2005|12:30am]

___dirtylove
Hey,
The world is ending, Don't you even know?
Well how did evolution get so slow?
The grass don't even grow.
Say,
You buy and sell and throw it all away.
And hope it never gets to you too late.
This plan is gonna blow.
Everything is better,
And everything is right.
And everything comes together.
And everything's done tonight.
If you cover me.
But the music's much too loud,
To hear this alarm sound.
Too loud, will you cover me?
But the emptiness I've found,
Can't keep me on the ground.
The ground, can you cover me?
Hey,
What's the point in trying to get away?
The neverending search to find your escape.
It's gonna leave you cold.
Everything is better,
And everything is right.
And everything comes together.
And everything's done tonight.
If you cover me.
But the music's much too loud,
To hear this alarm sound.
Too loud, will you cover me?
But the emptiness I've found,
Can't keep me on the ground.
The ground, can you cover me?
This is the last breath I, I think I'll ever take.
this is the last move I , I think I'll ever make.
Will there be a chance now to figure this out?
And be free tonight.
But the music's much too loud,
To hear this alarm sound.
Too loud, will you cover me?
But the emptiness I've found,
Can't keep me on the ground.
The ground, can you cover me
The music's much too loud,
To hear this alarm sound.
Too loud, will you cover me?

Le FOO! Why are they so good??? The World May Never Know! [19 Nov 2005|07:23pm]

Foo Fighters - D.O.A.

h you know I did it
It's over and I feel fine
Nothing you could say is gonna change my mind
Waiting and I wait at the longest night
Nothing like the taste to sweet decline

I was down, I fell, I fell so fast
Dropping like the grains in an hourglass
Never say forever cause nothing last
Dancing with the bones of my buried past

Nevermind there's nothing I can do
Bet your life there's something killing you

It's a shame we have to die my dear
No ones getting out of here, alive
This time

What a way to go, they have no fear
No ones getting out of here, alive
This time

Finished, I'm getting you off my chest
Made you come clean in a dirty dress
A promise is a promise you kept in check
Heart across a heart that beats it's best

Take a good hard look for the very last time
The very last one in a very long line
Only took a second to say goodbye
Been a pleasure 'bout the pleasure's
been mine, all mine

Ain't no way, DOA
Ain't no way, DOA

It's a shame we have to disappear
No ones getting out of here, alive
This time
This time
This time

The Spill Canvas - The Tide

and there's three
count them three
children playing on the beach
they were eager to learn,to be taught,and to teach
there's Veronica
she's biting her lip
as she watches the waves turn white at the tip
and there's Vada
radiating with joy
like Elise she still cant stand the sight of a boy
and lastly there's Dave
his hair dances in the wind
and he's wondering what love is
and why
it has to
end

and he cant understand
how everyone goes on breathing when true love ends
his mother whispers quietly

heaven's not the place that you go when you die
it's that moment in life
when you actually feel alive
so live for the moment
and take this advice live by every word
love is just a hoax
so forget anything that you've ever heard
and live for the moment now

and there's three
count'em three
children growing on the beach
they were eager to learn,to be taught,and to teach
and there's Veronica
she's licking her lips
as she waits for her real first passionate kiss
and there's Vada
she can't admit her jealousy
of her sister, Veronica
and how she's so pretty
and lastly theres Dave
still sitting on the dock
he ponders his life as he skips his rocks
and he wonders when his father will return
but he's not coming back

and he can't understand
how everyone goes on breathing when true love ends
his mother whispers quietly

heaven's not the place that you go when you die
it's that moment in life
when you actually feel alive
so live for the moment
and take this advice live by every word
love is just a hoax
so forget everything that you've ever heard
and live for the moment [forget everything]

and there's three
count'em three
children missing from the beach
they were eager to learn,to be taught,and to teach
but there's something
is that they'd never live past the age 15
due to neglect
from their mother
who was bedridden by her ex-lover
their father

and she didn't even notice
or pay much attention
as the tide came in
and swept her three into the ocean
now all her advice
it seems useless

no heaven's not the place that you go when you die
it's that moment in life
when you touch her and you feel alive
so live for the moment
and take this advice live by every word
love is completely real
so forget everything that you've heard
and live for the moment now
sing your heart out

Ben Folds - Magic [05 Oct 2005|05:47pm]

staccatobridge
*From the back of your big brown eyes
I knew you'd be gone as soon as you could
And I hoped you would
We could see that you weren't yourself
And the lines on your face did tell
It's just as well
You'd never be yourself again

Saw you last night
Dance by the light of the moon
Stars in your eyes
Free from the life that you knew

You're the magic that holds the sky up from the ground
You're the breath that blows these cool winds 'round
Trading places with an angel now
Saw you last night
Danced by the light of the moon
Stars in your eyes
Free from the life that you knew
Saw you last night
Stars in the sky
Smiled in my room*

Fucking get this song. It's..just..*relates to lyrical content*
sing your heart out

Excellent Song [25 Sep 2005|12:56pm]

Piano Man - Billy Joel

It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me
Making love to his tonic and gin

He says, "Son can you play me a memory
I'm not really sure how it goes
But it's sad and it's sweet
And I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man's clothes"

Sing us a song you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feeling alright

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And he's quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
But there's someplace that he'd rather be

He says, "Bill, I believe this is killing me"
As a smile ran away from his face
"Well, I'm sure that I could be a movie star
If I could get out of this place"

Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And he's talking with Davy, who's still in the Navy
And probably will be for life

And the waitress is practicing politics
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
Yes they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
But it's better than drinking alone

Sing us a song you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feeling alright

It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been coming to see
To forget about life for a while

And the piano sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say "Man what are you doing here?"

Sing us a song you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feeling alright
sing your heart out

a special one for someone special [28 Aug 2005|07:53pm]

lookatthe_stars
When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please to tame your wild wild heart
I know that you feel like the walls are closing in on you
It's hard to find relief and people can be so cold
When darkness is upon your door and you feel like you can't take it anymore

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

When you feel all alone
And a loyal friend is hard to find
You're caught in a one way street
With the monsters in your head
When hopes and dreams are far away and
You feel you can't face the day

Because there has always been heartache and pain
And when it's over you'll breathe again
You'll breathe again

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please
To tame your wild wild heart

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone


I'm sorry
I heard about the bad news today
A crowd of people around you
Telling you it's okay
And everything happens for a reason

When you lose a part of yourself
To somebody you know
It takes a lot to let go
Every breath that you remember
Pictures fade away
But memory's forever

An empty chair at all the tables
And I'll be seein' you when all my days boil down
But it's better where you're goin' anyway

lepards and dolphins, my lone, can and will live happyly ever after
sing your heart out

lookatthe_stars
so don't ask me out, don't make me try,
'cause i don't wanna let you, i don't wanna...
i cant complain if i dont know how
its a sad sad song with no story line
i fall to sleep in my rented room
its not much to talk about,
i've got so much to talk about
but i dont wanna let you
i dont wanna let you down

but i'm still not right
racing thoughts and wasted time
it's the same old story-line
this is my nursery rhyme

Give me a reason to end this discussion
To break with tradition, to fall and divide,
So let's not get carried away
With the process of healing relations
I don't want to waste your time.
Tell me that you're alright,
That everything is alright.
Please tell me that you're alright,
That everything is alright.
Everything's fine.

Search And Rescue - My American Heart [13 Aug 2005|02:59pm]

___dirtylove
A dozen city lights
it's bitter cold tonight
I'll see all you've got and youll see mine
just watch your own life
and pass it by
I'm not satisfied
just complicated
So go and we'll jet this place together
it's what you want so tell me what we've got now
no more time to mess around now
contemplating of our time yeah
If forever stays this warm
then theres no harm
in our future
so whats our future
it's written out in sand
Just take my hand
we'll drive away
Let's go somewhere far now
We'll dissipate our fears
and make them thoughts of hope
You're saying that I'm blind
but she doesn't know I'll never leave her side
A lover she's called
so I'll wait forever but shes already mine
my heart
search and rescue
but I found you
But hey wonderful
Isn't she beautiful?
Goodnight

Efff, heard them at warped for the first time, they're pretty good, albeit pop-punky

Relient K -- High of 75


We were talking together
I said, "what's up with this weather?"
Don't know whether or not
How sad I just got
'Cause on my own volition.
What if I'm just missing the sun

And tomorrow, I know,
Will be rainy at best.
And the forecast, I know,
Is that I'll be depressed.

But I'll wait outside
Hoping that I'll catch sight of the sun .

[Chorus:]
Because on and off,
The clouds have fought
Their control over the sky

And lately the weather
Has been so Bi-polar
And Consequently so have I

And now I'm sunny with a High
of 75
Since You took my heavy heart
And made it light

And its funny how you find
You enjoy your life
When you're happy to be alive

[Chorus]

And the temperature is freezing
And then, after dark ,
There is a cold frost sweeping
In over my heart

And we might break up
If I don't wake up to the sun

[Chorus]

Sunny with a High of 75
Since You took my heavy heart
And made it light (made it light)

And its funny how you find
You enjoy your life
When you're happy to be...
Alive
sing your heart out

Tell me that you're alright,
Yeah, everything is alright.
Please tell me that you're alright,
Yeah, everything is alright.

Give me a reason to end this discussion,
To break with tradition, to fall and divide.
Because I hate the ocean, theme parks and airplanes,
Talking with strangers, waiting in line..
I'm through with these pills that make me sit still.
"Are you feeling fine?"
Yes, I feel just fine.

Tell me that you're alright,
Yeah, everything is alright.
Please tell me that you're alright,
Yeah, everything is alright.

I'm sick of the things I do when I'm nervous
Like cleaning the oven or checking my tires
Or counting the number of tiles in the ceiling..
Head for the hills, the kitchen's on fire!

I used to rely on self-medication,
I guess I still do that from time to time.
But I'm getting better at fighting the future,
"Someday you'll be fine.."
Yes, I'll be just fine.

Tell me that you're alright,
Yeah, everything is alright.
Please tell me that you're alright,
Yeah, everything is alright.

Give me a reason to end this discussion
To break with tradition, to fall and divide,
So let's not get carried away
With the process of healing relations
I don't want to waste your time.

Tell me that you're alright,
Yeah, everything is alright.
Please tell me that you're alright,
Yeah, everything is alright.

Everything is alright.

We are ok
