    Music can offend express what we can't put into words. What song sums up your mood today? Do you wanna dedicate a song to someone?

    Here's mine

    (dedicated to bunny :wink: )

    Why do you build me up (Build me up)
    Buttercup baby just to
    let me down (Let me down)
    And mess me around
    And then worst of all (Worst of all)
    You never call baby
    When you say you will (Say you will)
    But I love you still
    I need you (I need you)
    More than anyone darlin'
    You know that I have from the start

    So build me up (Build me up)
    Buttercup
    Don't break my heart
    I'll be over at ten
    You tell me time and again
    But you're late
    I wait around and then
    I went to the door
    I can't take any more
    It's not you
    You let me down again

    Baby Baby
    Try to find a little time
    And I'll make you happy
    I'll be home
    I'll be waiting beside the phone
    Waiting for you.

    Why do you build me up....
    To you I'm a toy
    But I could be the boy
    You adore
    If you'd just let me know
    Although you're untrue
    I'm attracted to you
    All the more
    Why do I need you so Baby Baby.....

    ooh ooh ooh
    Why do build me up .....

    omg OMG omg!!!!

    I love that song like you have no idea :biggrin: it was "our" song for the summer.. that is, my softball team and I. We'd sing it in the dugout.. totally off key and belting it out as loud as we could.. I love it

    Thanks for posting it :laugh: it made my day

    I have a song...

    You're not sure that you love me
    But you're not sure enough to let me go
    Baby it ain't fair you know
    To just keep me hangin' 'round

    You say you don't wanna hurt me
    Don't wanna to see my tears
    So why are you still standing here
    Just watching me drown

    [Chorus]
    And it's alright, yeah I'll be fine
    Don't worry 'bout this heart of mine
    Just take your love and hit the road
    There's nothing you can do or say
    You're gonna break my heart anyway
    So just leave the pieces when you go

    Now you can drag out the heartache
    Baby you can make it quick
    Really get it over with
    And just let me move on

    Don't concern yourself
    With this mess you've left for me
    I can clean it up, you see
    Just as long as you're gone

    [Chorus]

    You not making up your mind
    Is killing me and wasting time
    I need so much more than that
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    [Chorus]

    Leave the pieces when you go
    Oh yeah
    Leave the pieces when you go
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
    Leave the pieces when you go

    okay i couldnt choose between 2 songs so here they are

    There's poison in my drinking glass
    Don't stop just sip it down
    And in a swirling masquerade of sound
    My body hits the ground
    I'm beautiful when I'm asleep
    Martini kisses land
    On my blistered bloody scarlet lips
    The bottles in my hand

    Burn out, not fade away [x6]

    I'll speak in riddles so you can understand
    I'll draw in pencil so you can trace with pen
    So in love with me like sand to wet feet
    I'll write both our names into the wet concrete

    We're glistening like silver spoons
    Beneath the summer night
    Oh can you smell the subtle hint of frost
    As the flowers start to cry
    The autumn winds are bringing graves
    To all the emerald trees
    They're so beautiful in their dismay
    The colors slowly bleed

    Burn out, not fade away [x6]

    I'll speak in riddles so you can understand
    I'll draw in pencil so you can trace with pen
    So in love with me like sand to wet feet
    I'll write both our names into the wet concrete

    The pawns will fade away
    (Burn out, not fade away)
    (Burn out, not fade away)
    The king's at his checkmate
    (Burn out, not fade away)
    (Burn out, not fade away)
    And I sit here with a sick grin
    Choking as I laugh until I die.

    Burn out, not fade away [x4]





    Prison gates won’t open up for me
    On these hands and knees I’m crawlin’
    Oh, I reach for you
    Well I’m terrified of these four walls
    These iron bars can’t hold my soul in
    All I need is you
    Come please I’m callin’
    And oh I scream for you
    Hurry I’m fallin’

    Show me what it’s like
    To be the last one standing
    And teach me wrong from right
    And I’ll show you what I can be
    Say it for me
    Say it to me
    And I’ll leave this life behind me
    Say it if it’s worth saving me

    Heaven’s gates won’t open up for me
    With these broken wings I’m fallin’
    And all I see is you
    These city walls ain’t got no love for me
    I’m on the ledge of the eighteenth story
    And oh I scream for you
    Come please I’m callin’
    And all I need from you
    Hurry I’m fallin’

    Show me what it’s like
    To be the last one standing
    And teach me wrong from right
    And I’ll show you what I can be
    Say it for me
    Say it to me
    And I’ll leave this life behind me
    Say it if it’s worth saving me

    Hurry I’m fallin’

    Whitney Houston - How Will I Know

    There's a boy I know
    He's the one I dream of
    Looks into my eyes
    Takes me to the clouds above

    Ooh, I lose control
    Can't seem to get enough
    When I wake from dreaming
    Tell me is it really love
    How will I know(Don't trust your feelings)
    How will I know
    How will I know(Love can be deceiving)
    How will I know

    [chorus]
    How will I know if he really loves me
    I say a prayer with every heartbeat
    I fall in love whenever we meet
    I'm asking you, what you know about these things
    How will I know if he's thinking of me
    I try to phone but I'm too shy (can't speak)
    Falling in love is all bitter sweet
    This love is strong, why do I feel weak

    Oh, wake me, I'm shaking
    Wish I had you near me now
    Said, there's no mistaking
    What I feel is really love
    How will I know(Don't trust your feelings)
    How will I know
    How will I know(Love can be deceiving)
    How will I know

    [chorus]
    How will I know if he really loves me
    I say a prayer with every heartbeat
    I fall in love whenever we meet
    I'm asking you, what you know about these things
    How will I know if he's thinking of me
    I try to phone but I'm too shy (can't speak)
    Falling in love is all bitter sweet
    This love is strong, why do I feel weak

    If he loves me, if he loves me not [3x]
    Oh, how will I know

    [chorus]
    How will I know if he really loves me
    I say a prayer with every heartbeat
    I fall in love whenever we meet
    I'm asking you what you know about these things
    How will I know if he's thinking of me
    I try to phone but I'm too shy (can't speak)
    Falling in love is all bitter sweet
    This love is strong why do I feel weak

    ***

    Now before y'all jump to conclusions, it's kind of an inside, lyrics-swapping joke kind of deal :tongue:
    Great though :biggrin:

    Polyamorous - Breaking Benjamin Lyrics

    The day has come to an end
    The sun is over my head
    My polyamorous friend
    he got me in a mess of trouble again

    So
    Just when you think that you're all right
    I'm callin' out from the inside
    I never hurt anyone
    I never listen at all

    They've come to get me again
    The cloud is over my head
    My polyamorous friend
    he got me in a mess of trouble again


    So
    Just when you think that you're all right
    I'm callin' out from the inside
    I never hurt anyone
    I never listen at all
    just stay away from the white light
    I'd say your worst side's your best side
    I never hurt anyone
    I never listen at all-

    well how do you know?
    well how do you know?
    well how do you know?
    well how do you know?


    So
    Just when you think that you're all right
    I'm callin' out from the inside
    I never hurt anyone
    I never listen at all
    just stay away from the white light
    I'd say your worst side's your best side
    I never hurt anyone
    I never listen at all-
    Let's go

    Ten foot pole - Late at night



    I walked in on you
    I couldn't believe my eyes
    I forgot to knock and I apologize but I can't forget what I saw
    I always wondered if you had a darker side you wear a smile but your eyes are red like you just cried
    Now will you explain?
    By day you wear your happy face,
    everybody thinks you're perfect,
    They don't know much about your pain,
    Late at night no one can see,
    You cut yourself to get back at me,
    Late at I try to understand,
    your friends all call you first when every little thing goes wrong,
    They know that they can count on you,
    But you don't call on them when you need a little help,
    You work it out alone,
    Late at night no one can see,
    You cut yourself to get back at me,
    Late at night I try to understand,
    While I'm wishing on the stars,
    you're collecting little scars,
    Late at night what did I do wrong that you deserve to bleed?
    Tell me just what should I do?
    Now I know your secret
    I won't tell your friends at work
    I won't tell your favorite niece
    I won't tell your mom and dad
    I won't tell anyone why you wear sweaters when it's hot
    How will you explain the scars to your kids?
    Will you lie to each new person in your life?

    Ok this was how I was feeling today :

    Harry Nilsen Everbody's Talking at me

    Everybody's talking at me
    I don't hear a word they're saying
    Only the echoes of my mind

    People stopping staring
    I can't see their faces
    Only the shadows of their eyes

    I'm going where the sun keeps shining
    Thru' the pouring rain
    Going where the weather suits my clothes
    Backing off of the North East wind
    Sailing on summer breeze
    And skipping over the ocean like a stone

    For someone special...

    Every day is so wonderful
    Then suddenly, it's hard to breathe
    Now and then, I get insecure
    From all the pain, I'm so ashamed

    I am beautiful no matter what they say
    Words can't bring me down
    I am beautiful in every single way
    Yes, words can't bring me down
    So don't you bring me down today

    To all your friends, you're delirious
    So consumed in all your doom
    Trying hard to fill the emptiness
    The pieces gone, left the puzzle undone
    Is that the way it is

    You are beautiful no matter what they say
    Words can't bring you down
    You are beautiful in every single way
    Yes, words can't bring you down

    Don't you bring me down today...

    No matter what we do
    (no matter what we do)
    No matter what we say
    (no matter what we say)
    We're the song inside the tune
    Full of beautiful mistakes

    And everywhere we go
    (everywhere we go)
    The sun will always shine
    (sun will always shine)
    And tomorrow we might wake on the other side
    All the other times

    We are beautiful in every single way
    Yes, words can't bring us down
    We are beautiful in every single way
    Yes, words can't bring us down
    Don't you bring me down today

    Don't you bring me down today
    Don't you bring me down today

    This just came on first thing..... it works

    If I were you (and I wish that I were you),
    All the things Id do to make myself turn blue
    I suppose Id start by removing all my clothes,
    Tie my pantyhose around my neck

    Ill be that girl -- and you would be right over
    If I were a field, you would be in clover
    If I were the sun, you would be in shadow
    And if I had a gun, thered be no tomorrow

    If you will not have me as myself,
    Perhaps as someone else
    Perhaps as you Ill be worth noticing
    Then even a eunuch wont resist
    The magic of a kiss from such as me


    Ill be that girl -- and you would be right over
    If I were a field, you would be in clover
    If I were the sun, you would be in shadow
    If I had a gun, thered be no tomorrow

    Its time to kick off your shoes,
    Learn how to choose sadness
    Its time to throw off those chains,
    Addle our brains with madness

    cause weve got plenty of time
    To grow old and die
    But when at last your beautys faded
    Youll be glad that I have waited for you

    When youre done
    With being beautiful and young
    When that course is run, then come to me

    Ill be that girl -- and you would be right over
    If I were a field, you would be in clover
    If I were the sun, you would be in shadow
    If I had a gun, thered be no tomorrow

    Take Me, I'm Yours

    I've come across the desert
    To greet you with a smile
    My camel looks so tired
    It's hardly worth my while
    To tell you of my travels
    Across the golden east
    I see your preparations
    Invite me first to feast

    Take me I'm yours
    Because dreams are made of this
    Forever there'll be
    A heaven in your kiss


    Amusing belly dancers
    Distract me from my wine
    Across tibetian mountains
    Are memories of mine
    I've stood some ghostly moments
    With natives in the hills
    Recorded here on paper
    My chills and thrills and spills

    It's really been some welcome
    You never seem to change
    A grape to tempt your leisure
    Romantic gestures strange
    My eagle flies tomorrow
    It's a game I treasure dear
    To seek the helpless future
    My love at last I'm here

    oh lala :wink:


    another.... This song has significance to someone special.. :unsure: he'd sing it to me.. made me cry more than one.....god... *sigh* missing him...

    Saying I love you
    Is not the words I want to hear from you
    Its not that I want you
    Not to say, but if you only knew
    How easy it would be to show me how you feel
    More than words is all you have to do to make it real
    Then you wouldnt have to say that you love me
    Because Id already know

    What would you do if my heart was torn in two
    More than words to show you feel
    That your love for me is real
    What would you say if I took those words away
    Then you couldnt make things new
    Just by saying I love you

    More than words

    Now Ive tried to talk to you and make you understand
    All you have to do is close your eyes
    And just reach out your hands and touch me
    Hold me close dont ever let me go
    More than words is all I ever needed you to show
    Then you wouldnt have to say that you love me
    Cos Id already know

    What would you do if my heart was torn in two?
    More than words to show you feel
    That your love for me is real
    What would you say if I took those words away?
    Then you couldnt make things new
    Just by saying I love you

    More than words

    I promise this is my last... fornow...

    Midwest love affair I bend when I am bored,
    Late-night-liquor-blue will lead me to the floor.
    Can we fake it?
    Can we make believe?

    I'm so full of love it deeply sickens me.

    But all I could do is close my eyes,
    And cross my heart and hope to die,
    Cause you don't fucking listen,

    When I'm around.
    The least you could do is take it back,
    All the vicious remarks and verbal attacks,
    Cause I can't fucking stand it,
    When you're around

    Midwest aftermath the rumors start to rise,
    Did I truly do the things that you've described?
    They must hate me, every single one,
    It just sickens them what I consider fun.

    But all I could do is close my eyes,
    And cross my heart and hope to die,
    Cause you don't fucking listen,
    When I'm around.

    Stay With You - The Goo Goo Dolls

    And these streets turn me inside out
    Everything shines but leaves me empty still
    And I'll, I'll burn this lonely house down
    If you run with me
    If you run with me

    I'll stay with you
    The walls will fall before we do
    So take my hand now
    We'll run forever
    I can feel the storm inside you
    I'll stay with you

    And I'm fooled by my own desire
    I twist my fate just to feel you
    And you, you turn me toward the light
    And you're one with me
    Will you run with me?

    I'll stay with you
    The walls will fall before we do
    So take my hand now
    We'll run forever
    I can feel the storm inside you
    I'll stay with you

    Now, come in from this storm
    And I taste you sweet and warm
    Take what you need
    Take what you need
    From me

    Now, wake up this world
    Wake up tonight
    And run to me, run to me now

    I'll stay with you
    The walls will fall before we do
    So take my hand now
    We'll run forever
    I can feel the storm inside you
    I'll stay with you
    I'll stay with you

    (And today was a day just like any other)

    I'm on the verge, I'm on the verge
    Unraveling with every word
    With every word you say, make me believe
    That I won't feel your tires on the street
    As I'm finding the words... you're getting away

    I come undone, oh yes, I do
    Just think of all the thoughts wasted on you
    And every word you say, say something sweet
    Cause all I taste is blood between my teeth
    As I'm finding the words... you're getting away

    Well I'm ready, I'm ready to drop
    Oh, I'm ready, I'm ready so don't stop
    I'm ready so don't stop, Keep pushing
    I'm ready to fall, oh, I'm ready
    I'm ready so don't call, I'm ready so don't call

    I am aware, I've been misled
    I disconnect my heart, my head
    Don't wanna recognize when things go bad
    The things that you'll accept
    Except that I am finding the words... to say

    I'm ready, I'm ready to drop
    Oh oh oh oh oh, I'm ready
    I'm ready so don't stop
    I'm ready so don't stop

    (I wake up to find it's another
    Four aspirin morning, and I dive in
    I put on the same clothes I wore yesterday.
    When did society decide that we had to change
    And wash a tee shirt after every individual use:
    If it's not dirty, I'm gonna wear it.
    I take the stairs to the car
    And there's fog on the windows.
    (And I'm Fighting the words...)
    I need caffeine in my blood stream,
    I take caffeine in the blood stream.
    I grip the wheel and all at once I realize:
    (And you're getting away...)
    My life has become a boring pop song
    And everyone's singing along.)

    Well, I'm ready, to drop, well, I'm ready
    I'm ready so don't stop, oh
    Well, keep pushing, I'm ready to fall
    Well, I'm ready, I'm ready so don't call
    I'm ready so don't call, oh... oh... oh...

    Sainted - Embrace

    I've always been wholehearted,
    but it would take a saint to understand,
    And so they had me martyred so I'd find out.
    The sky explodes above us,
    and I know there's no other above you,
    I only touched the surface but I found out.

    And I won't leave before an army makes me run,
    Big fish eat the littles ones,
    You and me we're sainted,
    Don't let them break your soul.

    The chemicals have started,
    they stop me finding anybody new,
    Why was I your target, do I stand out.
    The stars were shining for us,
    and I know there's no other above you,
    I'm rolling with the punches, I won't lie down.

    And I won't leave before an army makes me run,
    Big fish eat the littles ones,
    You and me we're sainted,
    Don't let them break your soul.

    Roll the dice, cause nothing's ever sure in life,
    Even though the stakes are high, we're already sainted.
    You're the first, I know it cause I'm fit to burst,
    I know it cause my halo hurts, I feel like I've been sainted.

    And I won't leave before an army makes me run,
    Big fish eat the littles ones,
    You and me we're sainted,
    Don't let them break your soul.

    And I won't leave before an army makes me run,
    Big fish eat the littles ones,
    You and me we're sainted,
    Don't let them break your soul.

    What the hell's going on around here?

    First off-let's take it from the start
    Straight out-can't change what's in my heart
    No one-can tear my beliefs apart, you can't bring me

    You ain't-never seen no one like me
    Prevail-regardless what the cost might be
    Power-flows inside of me, you can't bring me

    Never-fall as long as I try
    Refuse-to be a part of your lie
    Even-if it means I die, you can't bring me

    You...can't...bring...me...down!

    Who the hell you calling crazy? You wouldn't know what crazy was
    If Charles Manson was eating fruit loops on your front porch....

    Time out-let's get something clear
    I speak-more truth than you want to hear
    Scapegoat-to cover up your fear, you can't bring me

    You ain't-never seen so much might
    Fight for-what I know is right
    What up-you got yourself a fight, you can't bring me

    Stand up-we'll all sing along
    Together-ain't nothin' as strong
    Won't quit-we ain't in the wrong, you can't bring me

    You...can't...bring...me...down!

    Bring me down-you can't bring me down!
    Bring me down-you can't bring me down, no!
    Bring me down-you can't bring me down!
    Bring me down-you can't bring me down, you can't bring me down!

    You...can't...bring...me...down!

    Bring me down-you can't bring me down!
    Bring me down-you can't bring me down, no!
    Bring me down-you can't bring me down!
    Bring me down-you can't bring me down, you can't bring me down!

    So why you trying to bring me?
    Well you can't bring me down...No, no, no, no
    Can't bring me down....No, no, no, no, no, no
    Can't bring me down....No, no, no, no, no, no
    Can't bring me down....No, no, no, no, no, no
    So why you trying to bring?
    Well you can't bring me down

    Just cause you don't understand what's going on don't mean it don't make no sense
    And just cause you don't like it, don't mean it ain't no good
    And let me tell you something;

    Before you go taking a walk in my world
    You better take a look at the real world
    Cause this ain't no Mister Roger's Neighborhood

    Can you say "feel like shit"?
    Yea maybe sometimes I do feel like shit
    I ain't happy 'bout it, but I'd rather feel like shit than be full of shit!

    And if I offended you, oh I'm sorry...
    But maybe you need to be offended
    But here's my apology and one more thing...f*ck you!

    Cos you...can't...bring...me...down!

    Bring me down-you can't bring me down!
    Bring me down-you can't bring me down, no!
    Bring me down-you can't bring me down!
    Bring me down-you can't bring me down!
    Bring me down-you can't bring me down, no!
    Bring me down-you can't bring me down, no!
    Bring me down-you can't bring me down, you can't bring me down!

    Can't bring me down!
    Can't bring me down!
    Can't bring me down!
