11:13PM - Ideally, this is what I want

Imperfectly by Ani Difranco

"I"m ok
if you get me at a good angle
and you're ok
in the right sort of light
we don't look like pages from a magazine
but that's alright
oh baby that's alright

I crashed your pickup truck
and then I had to drive it back home
I was crying I was so scared
of what you would do, what you would say
but you just started laughing
so i just started laughing along
saying it's looks a little rough but it runs ok
it looks a little rough but it runs good anyway

and we get a little further from perfection each year on the road
I think that's called character
I think that's just the way it goes
but it's better to be dusty
then polished like some store manaquian
won't you touch me where I'm rusty, let me stain your hand
touch me where I'm rusty, let me...

when you're pretty as a picture, they pound down your door
but I've been offered love in two dimensions before
and I know that it's not all that it's made out to be
let's show them all how it's done
let's do it all imperfectly
let's do it all imperfectly"

(((Just saw Stepford wives and it made me think of this song, made me think of those "not so movie" moments, and why they're what I want)))

7:56AM - A Good song, a good song

'Looks like I've lost my will to carry on, my friend' she said
And you can hear it in my whispered cries for love

I need your blissful touch to carry me away again
So can we roll tonight, roll through your desert, can we start over and just...

Run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory, but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right

We can just run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right

'Looks like I've lost my will to carry on, my friend' she said
I'm like a posse that's been ridin' for days
I've got the scars to prove that love has had its day and it's way with me
So can we roll tonight, roll through your desert, can we start over and just...

Run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right
We can just run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right

This ain't no night to be on your own
You've got to know where you're coming from
To know just where you're goin', lord
You've got to know where you're coming from
This ain't no night to be on your own

Run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right
We can just run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care
I don't care I don't care I don't care I don't care
Run away
Run away
Run away

Joe Nichols Lyrics

She Only Smokes When She Drinks Lyrics

So you lit her cigarette
You're feelin' pretty good
You think you've got a shot
Most girls you probably would
Yeah this is that kind of place
But she ain't that kind of girl
You're readin' it all wrong
Let me tell you about her/

She only smokes when she drinks
She only drinks now and then
Now and then when she's tired
Of bein' let down by men
You can give her a light
But it's not what you think
Everybody knows she only drinks alone
And she only smokes when she drinks

Did you ask her to dance
Let me guess, she told you no
Got to take her some place quiet
And see how far that goes
Oh, don't take it all that hard
When she smiles and turns you down
For a complicated girl
She ain't that hard to figure out

She only smokes when she drinks
She only drinks now and then
Now and then when she's tired
Of bein' let down by men
You can give her a light
But it's not what you think
Everybody knows she only drinks alone
And she only smokes when she drinks

3:41PM - Lil Liz Phair for you

Why can't I breathe whenever I think about you
Why can't I speak whenever I talk about you
It's inevitable, it's a fact that we're gonna get down to it
So tell me
Why can't I breathe whenever I think about you

High enough for you to make me wonder
Where it's goin'
High enough for you to pull me under
Somethin's growin'
Out of this that we can't control
Baby I am dyin'
(that's gotta be the best feeling about the whole mess of things, when you just lose the ability to breathe for those moments)

///
And I never met a man who was so pretty inside
He's got petals on the bed of his sweat sock drawer
And who the fuck am I to criticize him 'cause I really need him now
In fact I'm kinda freaking out
And I'm wondering where the hell you are

Johnny feel good, Johnny right on
Johnny miss you, Johnny light on
Johnny makes me feel strangely good about myself
///

I am extraordinary, if you'd ever get to know me
I am extraordinary, I am just your ordinary
Average every day sane psycho
Supergoddess
Average every day sane psycho
(Sane psycho, ya I'd say that covers the dichotomy part of me)

Current mood: chipper

8:37AM

I know actual "updating" isn't supposed to happen here, but as a precursor to posting these lyrics...

I used to think romantic/sweet moments were really stupid and those points in movies that are all melodramatic and sweet were dumb...

But kissing to this song in the background made me change my mind.

Michelle Branch
Breathe


I've been driving for an hour
Just talking to the rain
You say I've been driving you crazy
and its keeping you away
So just give me one good reason
Tell me why I should stay
'Cause I dont wanna waste another moment
in saying things we never meant to say

And I Take it just a little bit
I, hold my breath and count to ten
I, I've been waiting for a chance to let you in

If I just breathe
Let it fill the space in between
I'll know everything is alright
Breathe
Every little piece of me
You'll see
Everything is alright
If I just breathe

Well it's all so overrated
In not saying how you feel
So you end up watching chances fade
And wondering what's real

And I Give you just a little time
I, Wonder if you realize
I've been waiting till I see it in your eyes

If I just breathe
Let it fill the space between
I'll know everything is alright
Breathe,
Every little piece of me
You'll see
Everything is alright
If I just breathe
Breathe

So I whisper and I'm,
Hoping you hear me
Do you hear me?

If I just breathe
Let it fill the space between
I'll know everything is alright
Breathe,
Every little piece of me
You'll see
Everything is alright

I've been drinving for an hour
Just talking to the rain

3:31PM - Don't feel comfortable putting em anywhere but here

Ani Stuff

Wish I May

losing my love of adventure
losing all respect for me and myself tonight
i wonder what happens
if i get to
the end of this tunnel
and there isn't a light
i've worn down the treads
on all of my tires
i've worn through the elbows
and the knees of my clothing
and i'm staring down the gravel
driveway of desire trying not to
wake up my sleeping self loathing

it takes a stiff upper lip
just to hold up my face
i gotta suck it up and savour
the taste of my own behaviour

i am spinning with longing
faster then a roulette wheel
this is not who i meant to be
this is not how i meant to feel


Going Once

going once, going twice
sold to the girl
who ignored all the advice
of all the people who knew her better

 

Providence

it's a narrow margin
just room enough for regret

Fin.

Current mood: sick

12:55PM - This song makes me sad b/c it's blatent escapism, and I really love it, which is sad

Nelly Furtado
Picture Perfect

Picture perfect a life that you saw in a magazine
Or maybe a travelling book
Wanted to get on that plane and fly away
cause you are a rock star deep down inside
You walk with a swagger, got nothin' to hide
Cigarette in your mouth, a cuff on your jeans
Your sideburns are perfect, you're a perfect and lean
So you made an oil painting to inmortalize
All of the hope and vision in your eyes
In your leisure coat and cowboy hat
North American records and so much to bat for

Please bring me along
Please bring me along
Because I want to see everything you have to offer me

Get a job lifting cement
Oh it's so dry when it rains it gets wet
And the village was great, now it's a suburb
You left behind half of all that you had learnt
Relearn a couple things along the way
The thrift shop so clean all for half what you'd pay
So you try everything on, on for size
Drop top your Camaro and go for a ride

Please bring me along
Please bring me along
Because I want to see everything you have to offer me

And I don't mind to sit here and waste my time
Oh but this world is not mine to define
And I want to shine

Please bring me along
Please take me away
I don't want to stay

And I want to see everything you have to offer me
And I want to see everything you have to offer me
And I want to see everything you have to offer me

I want to see everything the world has to offer me
I want to see everything the world has to offer me
I want to show everything I have to offer it
I want to show everything I have to offer it now

Current mood: okay

12:42PM

When you're all alone
And you need a light
Someone to guide you through the night
Just remember that I am here
To hold you close and dry your tears

Oh-ooh

And just when you thought you were falling
But you know I'll always be right there

When you're all alone
And you need a friend
Someone to help you to the end
When you need someone to catch you when you fall
I'll be there through it all

Oh-oh

Cause just when you thought you were losing
But you know I'll always be right there

And I'll be there through the good times
And the bad
And we'll be there for each other
Cause you're the best friend I've ever had

And just when you thought you were falling
But you know I'll always be right there
Oh-oooh whenever you need me
I'll always be right there

11:16PM - Pretty

I'm pretty, what do I deserve?
I feel pretty, until I walk out the door.
I wonder when pretty's gonna bleed.
My monster has all the time he needs.

So I came home to feel ugly again.
Feels better alone, pretty ugly again.
If you come back around I may not let you in,
Cause I don't understand what this pretty is.

You're so pretty, could I get the nerve?
You said, "I love you, pretty".
What do I deserve?
I wonder, is pretty gonna waste?
My monster has all the time in the day.

So I came home to feel ugly again.
Feels better alone, pretty ugly again.
If you come back around I may not let you in,
Cause I don't understand what this pretty is.

I wonder what pretty has to say.
I want to feel pretty every day.
I wonder what it's like to be pretty.
I wonder what it's like to be pretty...

Title: Pretty
By: Kidney Thieves

Amazing song, kind of dark but meaningful I think.

By the way, I'm new.. I love all the songs posted on here.

3:20PM - The Ever Applicable Dido

(oh the ppl i would sing this too, oh the ppl that could have sung this to me, it's a good song, too good, TEARS down my cheek when I first heard it)

Dido See The Sun lyrics

I'm comin' 'round to open the blinds
You can't hide here any longer
My God you need to rinse those puffy eyes
You can't last here any longer

And yes they'll ask you where you've been
And you'll have to tell them again and again

And you probably don't want to hear tomorrow's another day
Well I promise you you'll see the sun again
And you're asking me why pain's the only way to happiness
And I promise you you'll see the sun again

Come on take my hand
We're going for a walk, I know you can
You can wear anything as long as it's not black
Please don't mourn forever
She's not coming back

And yes they'll ask you where you've been
And you'll have to tell them again and again

And you probably don't want to hear tomorrow's another day
Well I promise you you'll see the sun again
And you're asking me why pain's the only way to happiness
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
And I promise you you'll see the sun again

Do you remember telling me you found the sweetest thing of all
You said one day this was worth dying for
So be thankful you knew her at all
But it's no more

And you probably don't want to hear tomorrow's another day
Well I promise you you'll see the sun again
And you're asking me why pain's the only way to happiness
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
I promise you you'll see the sun again

See the sun again
See the sun again
See the sun again
See the sun again

See the sun again
See the sun again
See the sun again
See the sun again

3:14PM - I'm a sucker for songs like this

ON LOVE, IN SADNESS
words by jason mraz & jenny keene | music by jason mraz
adapted from the poem "on love, in sadness" by jenny keene

Oh love it's a brittle madness, I sing about it in all my sadness

It's not falsified to say that I found god so inevitably well,

It still exists pale and fine. I can't dismiss

And I won't resist and if I die well at least I tried



And we just lay awake in lust and rust in the rain

And pour over everything we say we trust


It happened again, I listened in thru hallways and thin doors

Where the rivers unwind, rust and in the rain endure.

The rust and the rain are sins

And I'm in like Flynn again



So go on place your order now cause some other time is right around the clock

You can stand in line. it finally begins just around the clock

You can have your pick if your stomach is sick whether you eat or not

And there is just one thing that I never forgot



And we just lay awake in lust and rust in the rain

And pour over everything we say we trust

It happened again, I listened in thru hallways and thin doors

Where the rivers unwind, rust and in the rain so easy

These are the comforts that be



You see well I'm feeling lucky oh well, maybe that's just me

You should be proud of me oh hell if you could only see

That we're gonna grow on up to be, ah yes

We are thick as thieves



Oh love it's a brittle madness, I sing about it in all my sadness

It's not falsified to say that I found god


Inevitably, well it still exists pale and fine I can't dismiss

And I won't resist and if I die well at least I tried



And we just lay awake in lust and rust in the rain

And pour over everything we say we trust

It happened again, I listened in thru hallways and thin doors

Where the rivers unwind and the rust and the rain endure

(the rust and the rain endure. I'm sure.)



I am insofar to know the measure of love isn't loss

Love will never ever be insofar to know the measure of love isn't loss

Love will never ever be lost on me.

Love will never ever be lost on me.


***I like songs that help me keep the faith
cuz it's not always easy

6:29PM - I find this a really sad song

2 out of 3 aint bad
By Meatloaf

Baby we can talk all night
But that ain't getting us nowhere
I told you everything I possibly can
There's nothing left inside of here


And maybe you can cry all night
But that'll never change the way I feel
The snow is really piling up outside
I wish you wouldn't make me leave here


I poured it on and I poured it out
I tried to show you just how much I care
I'm tired of words and I'm too hoarse to shout
But you've been cold to me so long
I'm crying icicles instead of tears


And all I can do is keep on telling you
I want you
I need you
But there ain't no way
I'm ever gonna love you
Now don't be sad
'Cause two out of three ain't bad
Now don't be sad
'Cause two out of three ain't bad


You'll never find your gold on a sandy beach
You'll never drill for oil on a city street
I know you're looking for a ruby
In a mountain of rocks
But there ain't no Coupe de Ville hiding
At the bottom of a Cracker Jack box


I can't lie
I can't tell you that I'm something I'm not
No matter how I try
I'll never be able to give you something
Something that I just haven't got


There's only one girl that I will ever love
And that was so many years ago
And though I know I'll never get her out of my heart
She never loved me back, ooh I know
I remember how she left me on a stormy night
She kissed me and got out of our bed
And though I pleaded and I begged her
Not to walk out that door
She packed her bags and turned right away


And she kept on telling me
She kept on telling me
She kep on telling me
I want you
I need you
But there ain't no way
I'm ever gonna love you
Now don't be sad
'Cause two out of three ain't bad
Don't be sad
'Cause two out of three ain't bad


Baby we can talk all night
But that ain't getting us nowhere

****it's like, the world, you've got just about everything, but not everything.********

From Autumn to Ashes
Autumns Monologue

Oh why cant I be what you need
a new improved version of me
but i'm nothing so good
no i'm nothing
just bones, a lonely ghost burning down songs
of violence of love and of sorrow
i beg for just one more tomorrow
where you hold me down fold me in
deep deep deep in the heart of your sins

I break in two over you
I break in two
And each piece of me dies
And only you can give the breath of life
But you dont see me, you dont...

here i'm in between darkness and light
bleached and blinded by these nights
where im tossing and tortured til dawn
by you, visions of you then youre gone
the shock lifts the red from my face
when i hear someone's taking my place
how could love be so thoughtless, so cruel
when all, all that i did was for you

i break in two over you
i break in two
and each piece of me dies
and only you can give the breath of life
but you dont see me you dont..

i break in two over you
i break in two
and each piece of me dies
and only you can give the breath of life
but you dont see me you don't...

i break in two over you
i break in two over you, over you
i break in two
i would break in two for you
now you see me
now you don't
now you need me
now you don't


i'd just found this song the other day. its such an amazing song. great lyrics, great singing by the girl who was in Short Stories, Tragic Endinds.

Awesome song.
im in love with it.

i makes me happy, but its such a sad song though.

1:46PM - He always used to rub my back when the song said that part

I'm not falling into a complete relapse or anything
but I heard this song and it brought back memories
I thought I'd share,
cuz it's good

Alkaline Trio
"Nose over tail"
Crack my head open
on your kitchen floor
prove to you that I have brains
meanwhile tin men led by little girls
down lonely roads that lead to nowhere
my time to fake a season
and feel your mouth on mine
your saving me

Whatever happened to
that silly dream you had?
I wanna make it real
I'd love to rub your back
like a plane crash that never hits the ground
I fall in love w/ you
I'm nose over tail for you
Your voice
Like the sound of sirens
to a house on fire
You're saving me

Don't miss him all too much nowadays, just miss making memories w/ someone, but I'm getting better at that, I'm working on it

4:39AM - <3 the fool

Artist/Band: Wariner Steve
Song: Some Fools Never Learn

All my friends
Say I should leave you alone
You got a heart like a stone
And a wanderin' eye

And I know that they're right
I can make up my mind
Not to see you again
But you move through my dreams like the wind
It's no good to pretend
It won't happen again
Cause it'll happen again

Some fools never learn
Play with the fire
And you're gonna get burned
It's only love
When you're loved in return
Some fools never learn
Some fools never learn

And Baby I tried
But I'm just not that strong
Guess I knew all along
But that's not enough
I was falling in love

And you don't know it
But I came over tonight
There was somebody's car parked outside
Damn my eyes
Damn this heart of mine
I drove off into the night

Some fools never learn
Play with the fire
And you're gonna get burned
It's only love
When your loved in return
Some fools never learn
Some fools never learn

Somewhere in the city tonight
There's a girl and she's lonely like me
She'll be easy to see
And naturally
She'll have that look in her eye
She'll be feeling that way
I see it all plain as day
Oh I'll never be
What she wants me to be
Oh but lucky for me

Some fools never learn
Play with the fire
And you're gonna get burned
It's only love
When your loved in return
Some fools never learn
Some fools never learn
Some fools never learn


Because IM a fucking fool who STILL hasnt learned.

1:17PM - I've always liked this one, good sappy love song

The Stranger
by Melissa Ferrick

waiting wanting
to see you in my eyes
finding feelings
that I thought were buried inside

because I never though that I
could ever love like this
but you have
proven me wrong

you the stranger who took a chance
held me at a distance so I could see myself
so thank you for everything you gave without knowing
and thank you for letting me fall in love
without withholding
without withholding

so let me in now
I am ready to move
and here comes fear and resistance from you
and for once I am willing and now what i’ve got to wait?

these lessons are everywhere in my life
you know I never waited for anyone and I was always right
but ya now I give up I surrender
I would wait for you...forever

you the stranger who took a chance
held me at a distance so I could see myself
so thank you for everything you gave without knowing
and thank you for letting me fall in love with you
without withholding
without withholding

Current mood: uncomfortable

2:50AM - the usual with a side of pain to go

From Autumn To Ashes - Short Stories With Tragic Endings

Did you ever look, did you ever see that one person,
and the subtle way that they do these things and it hurts so much?
So much like choking down the embers of a great blaze.
It's that moment when your eyes seem to spread aspersions
and to scream confessions at the insipid sky parting clouds.
You let this one person come down in the most perfect moment.
And it breaks my heart to know the only reason you are here now is
A reminder of what I'll never have
I'll never have... I'll never...
Standing so close knowing that it kills me to breathe you in.


yea... i know the words by heart... but they seem to relate now more than ever... even more than before...

the shortest story with a horrible ending... only to remind me of what i will never have.

Current mood: sad

1:16AM

so i posted it in my own journal, and since this one also allows me to put up some lyrics, ima do it. i like this song. lyrically and not lyrically. its a good song. its by Silverstein called Smashed into Pieces...


Never again. I’ll slit my throat with the knife I pulled out of my spine. maybe when you find out that I’m dead, you’ll realize what you did to me. and if my lungs still let me breathe, would you be there for me? if I can make myself believe, I’ll give you back what you took away. no, I won’t let it go. douse myself in gasoline. so don’t save me when you come into the fire. I’d rather die than have to see your smile. you made me swear. I can’t sleep. realize all these things that you took from me. smash my heart into dust. suffocate my mind. tear at me from inside. smash apart what you created. how can I ever stop you from crushing my soul? it was yours to begin with.

Do You Miss Meaning Everything To Me?
Audio Karate

It doesn't seem to matter what you say
You will never feel the same
It doesn't seem to matter what you do
I will fall in love with you
And everyday I think we grow apart
I guess I saw it from the start
I guess I knew that you and I won't be
It doesn't mean that I can't dream about you
Think about you still
You complete a part of me I never knew I had to fill
I'd give you everything
Like the times I'd sing
On the phone to you
Was not the easiest thing to do
You know its true
You know it could've been this way
And I swear by my heart
There is nothing on earth that will keep us apart
And all I have
I swear I give to you
All that I say
You and I will begin this way
When you fall in love with me
It doesn't seem to matter what I say
You will never be the same
It doesn't seem to matter what you do
I will fall in love with you
And everyday I wonder how you feel
If your sincerity is real
I took the time
I softly called your name
I know I should've screamed instead
Do you miss meaning everything to me
'Cause not a day goes by
If I had kissed you
It just might have changed our destiny
'Cause we were meant to be
I'm standing on one knee
Wont you please just marry me
You know its true
You know it could have been this way.
And I swear by my heart
There is nothing on earth
That wont keep us apart
And all I have
I swear I give to you
All that I say
You and I will begin this way
When I fall in love with you
And I fell in love with you
*****(Something Something Something that I could never understand)******
You say you were on your way
Make it all come true
I swear to god
I would die for you
I'm standing on one knee
Wont you please just marry me
Give you anything
Like a diamond ring
And all the times we had
No I'd never take it back
You know it's true
You know it should've been this way
And I swear by my heart
There is nothing on earth
That wont keep us apart
And all I have
I swear I'll give to you...

Repeat until fade.


Definitely one of my favorite songs. I absolutely love the music and his voice... the lyrics as well. Reminds me of my darling dear boyfriend *cough* when he wasn't so darlingdear. ;) <3 Then again, I love every Audio Karate song it seems, but this has to be my favorite.
