    To Live is to hide -- Lacuna Coil :rockon:

    Wide emotion tries to come out
    Desparately seek in their path
    A way so I can not be out-done
    Finish the search for a meaning

    Hide emotions try to blow out
    Desparately seek in their blast
    A way so I can not be out-done
    Finish the search for the meaning

    What I need now
    What I need is to live to hide
    When you smother my devotion
    With your lies

    And I feel now
    As I did at that time
    And I'm wondering why
    Still I make you cry

    1. Gloomy Sunday - Billie Holiday

    Sunday is gloomy,
    My hours are slumberless
    Dearest the shadows
    I live with are numberless
    Little white flowers
    Will never awaken you
    Not where the black coaches
    Sorrow has taken you
    Angels have no thoughts
    Of ever returning you
    Wouldn't they be angry
    If I thought of joining you?

    * I find this first verse extremely heartwrenching. All of a sudden, I am addicted to this song!



    2. Weird - Hanson

    Isn't it weird. Isn't it strange.
    Even though we're just two strangers,
    on this runaway train
    We're both trying to find,
    a place in the sun
    We've lived in the shadows,
    but doesn't everyone
    Isn't it strange,
    how we all feel a little bit weird sometimes

    Isn't it hard standing in the rain.
    You're on the verge of going crazy,
    and your heart's in pain
    No one can hear,
    though you're screaming so loud
    You feel all alone,
    in a faceless crowd
    Isn't it strange how we all,
    get a little bit weird sometimes.

    Sitting on the side waiting for a sign,
    hoping that my luck will change.
    Reaching for a hand that can understand,
    someone who feels the same.
    When you live in a cookie cutter world,
    being different is a sin.
    So you don't stand out,
    and you don't fit in
    Weird.

    * Well, I am quite sure many can relate to this.. I damn sure can...a lot!

    Flood - Jars of Clay

    Rain, rain on my face
    It hasnt stopped raining for days
    My world is a flood
    Slowly I become one with the mud

    Chorus:

    But if I cant swim after forty days
    And my mind is crushed by the thrashing waves
    Lift me up so high that I cannot fall
    Lift me up
    Lift me up - when Im falling
    Lift me up - Im weak and Im dying
    Lift me up - I need you to hold me
    Lift me up - keep me from drowning again

    Downpour on my soul
    Splashing in the ocean, Im losing control
    Dark sky all around
    I cant feel my feet touching the ground

    [chorus]

    Calm the storms that drench my eyes
    Dry the streams still flowing
    Cast down all the waves of sin
    And guilt that overthrow me

    [chorus]

    Lift me up - when Im falling
    Lift me up - Im weak and Im dying
    Lift me up - I need you to hold me
    Lift me up - keep me from drowning again

    [Verse 1]
    I woke up late
    Guess I'm never really early
    I hesitate
    Only to fail
    I get so tired
    Of procrastinating
    I need a change

    [Chorus]
    I can't do this,
    I can't do this,
    I can't do this by myself
    I can't do this,
    I can't do this,
    Oh, God I need your help

    [Verse 2]
    I'm standing still
    Move so peaceful
    I can't pretend
    That I'm fine
    I get so ill
    Crazy agitated
    When I'm not really dying

    [Chorus]

    [Bridge]

    Press into me (echo)
    Breath the air(echo)
    Bask in me(echo)
    you'll be free
    to do anything

    [Chorus]x2

    It would be too long to post all three, but:
    Concrete Angel - Martina McBride
    Face Down - Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
    Those two are pretty well known, and thennn


    Broken - Lindsey Haun
    One of my favorites right now.
    Wake up to a sunny day, not a cloud up in the sky
    Then it starts to rain, my defenses hit the ground
    And they shatter all around, so open and exposed
    I found strength in the struggle
    Face to face with my trouble

    When you're broken in a million little pieces
    And you're trying but you can't hold on anymore
    Every tear falls down for a reason
    Don't you stop believing in yourself
    When you're broken

    Little girl don't be so blue
    I know what you're going through
    Don't let it beat you up
    Heaven knows that getting scars
    Only makes you who you are
    Only makes you who you are
    No matter how much your heart is aching
    There is beauty in the breaking
    Yeah

    When you're broken in a million little pieces
    And you're trying but you can't hold on anymore
    Every tear falls down for a reason
    Don't you stop believing in yourself
    When you're broken

    Better days are gonna find you once again
    Every piece will find its place

    When you're broken, when you're broken

    When you're broken in a million little pieces
    And you're trying but you can't hold on anymore
    Every tear falls down for a reason
    Don't you stop believing in yourself
    When you're broken
    Oh, when you're broken
    When you're broken
    When you're broken

    I survive by pure anxiety
    with a knot in my throat
    Save me from being forgotten
    Save me from loneliness
    Save me from weariness
    Same me from the darkness
    Don't let me fall anymore

    One by U2


    Is it getting better?
    Or do you feel the same?
    Would it make it easier on you now
    That you've got someone to blame?

    You say, "One love".
    "One life".
    When it's one need
    In the night.

    One love.
    We get to share it.
    But it leaves you baby,
    If you don't care for it .

    Did I disappoint you?
    Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
    You act like you never had love
    And you want me to go without.

    Well it's too late, tonight
    To drag the past out into the light.

    We're one,
    But we're not the same.
    We get to carry each other,
    Carry each other.
    One.

    Have you come here for forgiveness?
    Have you come to raise the dead?
    Have you come here to play Jesus
    To the lepers in your head?

    Did I ask too much?
    More than a lot?
    You gave me nothin',
    Now it's all I got.

    We're one,
    But we're not the same.
    Well, we hurt each other,
    Then we do it again.

    You say,
    "Love is a temple."
    "Love the higher law."
    "Love is a temple."
    "Love the higher law."

    You ask me to enter
    And then you make me crawl.
    But I can't be holdin' on
    To what you got,
    When all you got is hurt.

    Those Nights - skillet

    "Remember when we...stayed up late and we talked all night,
    in a dark room lit by the t.v light.
    through all the hard times in my life,
    those nights kept me alive.
    Listen to the radio play all night,
    didnt wanna go home to another fight,
    through all the hard times in my life,
    those nights kept me alive."

    Dedicated to Immy, my bestie. Love chu. <3

    Pearl Jam - Corduroy

    The waiting drove me mad, you're finally here and Im a mess
    I take your entrance back, cant let you roam inside my head
    I dont want to take what you can give
    I would rather starve than eat your bread
    I would rather run but I cant walk
    Guess Ill lie alone just like before

    Ill take the firmest path...oh, and I must refuse your test
    A-push me and I will resist...this behaviors not unique
    I dont want to hear from those who know
    They can buy, but cant put on my clothes
    I dont want to limp for them to walk
    Never would have known of me before
    I dont want to be held in your debt
    And Ill pay it off in blood, let I be wed
    And Im already cut up and half dead
    Ill end up alone like I began

    The Last Kiss-AFI
    Hung in your room, swaying, hoping only that you'll see
    All by myself, I'm alone in such poor company.
    The deeper I think, the deeper I seem to sink,
    I can't stop the insects that are feeding,
    pull the needles from beneath my skin.
    I broke myself, shattered, tied a bow around every piece.

    You'll love the eyes.
    Have they always shown so vacantly?
    The more I show the less you'll want to know.
    I can't stop the insects that are feeding,
    pull the needles from beneath my skin.
    Now I'm on display.
    I am becoming.

    Hurt myself today.
    It's all for you.

    Do you like, do you like, what I'm becoming?
    Cut myself today.
    It's all for you.
    I part the night, flashing, approaching as I watch you flee.
    Pushed through your panes.
    Seems I've landed quite uncomfortably.
    But as I pass through souls of broken glass
    I can't stop the insects that are feeding.
    Pull the needles from beneath my skin.
    Please don't ask me just what I think, trust me,
    you don't want to know.
    Please don't ask me to open up, trust me, trust me,
    'cause I can't
