    I'm almost sure that there is another one of these floating around here but I couldn't find it so I started a new one.

    So what are your favorite lyrics? you can post either a whole song or a couple lines.. it doesn't really matter.

    One of my favorites is from the song Lover I Don't Have To Love by Bright Eyes.

    "Love is an excuse to get hurt... and to hurt. Do you like to hurt? I do, I do. Then hurt me, Then Hurt me"

    Almost all of my favorite lyrics come from Bright Eyes songs...

    The wedding present - Interstate 5

    I should just get out of here and start driving south on Interstate 5
    But I need to stay near, in case you suddenly remember that I'm alive

    But I have this nagging fear that sex was all you needed
    I've tried to persevere; I guess I've not succeeded

    And is it sexist to say that I thought just boys were meant to behave in this way?
    And though you seemed quite sincere, will you even recognise my face this time next year?

    Well I'll remember how your eyes sparkled in the moonlight
    You can surely sympathise; I just wanted more than one night

    And yes there was one particular glance that made me afraid
    That you were just seeing me as a chance of getting laid

    you are the figures traced in the dust, you are the anger in which we must trust, you are the way with no direction, you are a window over the abyss, you are the power of vision and all that is seen, you are awakening to consciousness.

    you are a tree bearing news of good fruit.
    you are the winding the winding of the mammalian root
    you are the i am that i am you are
    you are the bright in the morning star.

    lungfish- you are the war.

    Settle For Nothing - Rage Against The Machine

    A jail cell is freedom from the pain in my home
    Hatred passed on, passed on and passed on
    A world of violent rage
    But it's one that I can recognize
    Having never seen the color of my father's eyes
    Yes, I dwell in hell, but it's a hell that I can grip
    I tried to grip my family
    But I slipped

    To escape from the pain in an existence mundane
    I got a 9, a sign, a set and now I gotta name

    Read my writing on the wall
    No-one's here to catch me when I fall
    Death is on my side....suicide!

    A jail cell is freedom from the pain in my home

    Yes, I dwell in hell, but it's a hell that I can grip
    I tried to grip my family

    To escape from the pain in an existence mundane
    I got a 9, a sign, a set and now I gotta name

    Read my writing on the wall
    No-one's here to catch me when I fall
    Caught between my culture and the system....genocide!

    Read my writing on the wall
    No-one's here to catch me when I fall
    If ignorance is bliss, then knock the smile off my face
    Yeah!

    If we don't take action now
    We settle for nothing later
    Settle for nothing now
    And we'll settle for nothing later
    If we don't take action now
    We settle for nothing later

    Stop and stare
    I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
    Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
    But I've become what I can't be, oh
    Stop and stare
    You start to wonder why you're here not there
    And you'd give anything to get what's fair
    But fair ain't what you really need
    Oh, can you see what I see

    When routine bites hard,
    And ambitions are low.
    And resentment rides high,
    But emotions won't grow.
    And we're changing our ways,
    Taking different roads.

    Love, love will tear us apart again.
    Love, love will tear us apart again.
    [ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/j/joy+division/love+will+tear+us+apart_20075884.html ]
    Why is the bedroom so cold?
    Turned away on your side.
    Is my timing that flawed?
    Our respect run so dry?
    Yet there's still this appeal,
    That we've kept through our lives.

    Love, love will tear us apart again.

    Joy Division

    Take me out tonight
    Oh, take me anywhere, I don't care
    I don't care, I don't care
    Driving in your car
    I never never want to go home
    Because I haven't got one, da ...
    Oh, I haven't got one


    And if a double-decker bus
    Crashes into us
    To die by your side
    Is such a heavenly way to die
    And if a ten-ton truck
    Kills the both of us
    To die by your side
    Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine


    Oh, There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
    There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
    There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
    There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out

    There is a light - the smiths

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

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

    Sounds of laughter shades of life are ringing
    Through my opened ears inciting and inviting me
    Limitless undying Love which shines around me like a
    million suns, and calls me on and on
    Across the universe
    Jai guru deva, om,
    Nothing's gonna change my world,
    Nothing's gonna change my world.
    Nothing's gonna change my world.
    Nothing's gonna change my world.

    Across the universe - the beatles

    Why wait any longer for the world to begin
    You can have your cake and eat it too
    Why wait any longer for the one you love
    When he's standing in front of you.

    Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
    Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead
    I long to see you in the morning light
    I long to reach for you in the night
    Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead.

    this isnt the best song around, or the most well known, but it describes exactly how i feel:

    You see me now a veteran of a thousand psychic wars
    I've been living on the edge so long
    Where the winds of limbo roar
    And I'm young enough to look at
    And far too old to see
    All the scars are on the inside
    I'm not sure if there's anything left of me

    Don't let these shakes go on
    It's time we had a break from it
    It's time we had some leave
    We've been living in the flames
    We've been eating up our brains
    Oh, please don't let theses shakes go on

    You ask me why I'm weary, why I can't speak to you
    You blame me for my silence
    Say it's time I changed and grew
    But the war's still going on dear
    And there's no end that I know
    And I can't say if we're ever...
    I can't say if we're ever gonna to be free

    Don't let these shakes go on
    It's time we had a break from it
    It's time we had some leave
    We've been living in the flames
    We've been eating out our brains
    Oh, please don't let theses shakes go on

    You see me now a veteran of a thousand psychic wars
    My energy's spent at last
    And my armor is destroyed
    I have used up all my weapons and I'm helpless and bereaved
    Wounds are all I'm made of
    Did I hear you say that this is victory?

    Don't let these shakes go on
    It's time we had a break from it
    Send me to the rear
    Where the tides of madness swell
    And been sliding into hell
    Oh, please don't let shakes go on
    Don't let these shakes go on
    Don't let these shakes go on

    "There ain't a way to fade away, so take away the razorblades
    It ain't safe to say that making pain will take the pain away
    There's greater ways to change the page, and everybody hates to say it
    But you gotta tame the rage, you've been sayin' you ain't gonna make it
    Oh, it's hard, I know that it's hard
    You can't trust no one and you're covered in scars
    These knives in my back with my friends' names on them
    We try to relax, but the pain keeps runnin'"

    If every angel's terrible, why do you welcome them?
    You say you'll provide the bird bath if I provide the skin
    And bathing in the moonlight, I'm to tremble like a kitten

    If blue eyed babes raised as Hitler's little brides and sons
    They got angelic tendencies, like some boys tend to act like queens
    If every angel's terrible, then why do you watch her sleep?
    You love to hear her sing and wear purple eyes like rings
    And the flowers have no scent, and the child's been miscarried

    If every angel's terrible, why do you welcome them?
    You say you'll provide the bird bath if I provide the skin
    And bathing in the moonlight, I'm to tremble like a kitten

    Oh every angel's terrible, said Freud and Rilke are all the same
    Rimbaud never paid them no mind, and Jimmy Morrison had his elevators
    His elevators. He had his elevator angels.
    And if every angel's terrible, why do you hide inside her like a child in a skirt?
    The supermarket's loud and bright
    And boy don't she feel warm tonight
    Boy don't she feel warm tonight

    (She sounded like an angel when she cried...)

    If every angel's terrible, why do you welcome them?

    You say you'll provide the birdbath if I provide the skin, yeah
    She sounded like an angel when she cried

    Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
    Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
    Whatever colors you have in your mind
    I’ll show them to you and you’ll see them shine

    Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
    Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
    Until the break of day, let me see you make him smile
    His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean
    And you’re the best thing that he’s ever seen

    Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
    Why wait any longer for the world to begin
    You can have your cake and eat it too
    Why wait any longer for the one you love
    When he’s standing in front of you

    Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
    Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead
    I long to see you in the morning light
    I long to reach for you in the night
    Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead
