    got this idea from reading another thread..

    you can post the lyrics, post the youtube link, or just post the title- what ever you like

    here are some of mine (titles only). may add some lyrics later:

    porcelain heart- barlowgirl

    courage- superchick

    beauty from pain- superchick

    still here- superchick

    silent all these years- tori amos

    upside down- tori amos

    good bye to love- the carpenters

    in the arms of the angels- not sure of the artist..

    the art of suicide- emily autumn

    that's probably it for now.. will probably think of others

    No lyrics, just an instrumental.

    Blazo - Time in Motion
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7o-32nmqDOc

    What a beautiful melody, haunting and melancholy, alluring and graceful. Is this my life? Or is this what I envisioned my life to be in my dreams? What matter does it make, this haunting melody still remains...

  11. Unbound (The Wild Ride) by Avenged Sevenfold

    Basically any A7X song, which I can find pieces of my life in their music.

    I would say Get Set Go's "Crying Shame". It's hard to go wrong with lyrics like, "What do you do when you're done with living but you are still alive/I don't want to kill myself, but I just can't survive/Hey, hey, hey, it's a crying shame"

    I've had John Lennon's "Mother" stuck in my head all afternoon . . . I wasn't literally abandoned by my parents, but it was cold and bitter enough. So yeah. Not such a bad summary.
     
  15. Suede - Still Life

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wS2jjjmkGw4&feature=related

    Lyrics:
    This still life is all I ever do
    There by the window quietly killed for you
    In the glass house my insect life
    Crawling the walls under electric lights
    I'll go into the night into the night
    She and I into the night

    Is this still life all I'm good for too?
    There by the window quietly killed for you
    And they drive by like insects do
    They think they don't know me
    They hired a car for you

    To go into the night, into the night
    She and I into the night

    And this still life is all I ever do
    There by the window quietly killed for you
    And this still life is all I ever do
    But it's still, still life
    But it's still, still life
    But it's still, still life

    Crash--sum 41
    i dont really like them..but this song gets to me..
    Hold me now,
    'Cause I couldn't even if I tried.
    It's over now,
    I guess it really is my time.

    I don't wanna go,
    But it's time I gotta say goodbye.
    So hold me now,
    'Cause this'll be our last time.

    I'm slowing down,
    And I don't think that I can fight.
    I know somehow,
    You'll find a way to live your life.

    Remember just to live,
    Ever day like it's your last.
    And hold me now,
    'Cause I think it's time for me to pass.

    I don't wanna die,
    I don't know why,
    This kind of fate was meant for me.
    You gotta be strong,
    Gotta move on,
    It's not how it was supposed to be.
    What do I say,
    It was never supposed to end up this way.
    What do I have to do,
    (I) Was supposed to grow old with you.

    But that ain't gonna happen.
    Mhmm.
    No that ain't gonna happen.

    Hold me now,
    'Cause the time I've got's running out.
    No tears allowed,
    Even though we've become without.

    I just wanna feel,
    Your head laying on my chest.
    So hold me now,
    As I take my last breath.

    I don't wanna die,
    I don't know why,
    This kind of fate was meant for me.
    You gotta be strong,
    Gotta move on,
    It's not how it was supposed to be.
    What do I say,
    It was never supposed to end up this way.
    What do I have to do,
    (I) Was supposed to grow old with you.

    But that ain't gonna happen.
    Mhmm.
    No that ain't gonna happen.

    The Little Girl

    Her parents never took the young girl to church
    Never spoke of His name
    Never read her His word
    Two non-believers walking lost in this world
    Took their baby with them
    What a sad little girl

    Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs
    Never wanted to play
    Or give kisses and hugs
    She'd watch the TV and sit there on the couch
    While her mom fell asleep
    And her daddy went out

    And the drinking and the fighting
    just got worse every night
    Behind their couch she'd be hiding
    Oh what a sad little life
    And like it always does, the bad just got worse
    With every slap and every curse
    Until her daddy in a drunk rage one night
    Used a gun on her mom and then took his life

    And some people from the city took the girl far away
    To a new mom and a new dad
    kisses and hugs everyday
    Her first day of Sunday school the teacher walked in
    And a small little girl
    Stared at a picture of Him

    She said I know that man up there on that cross
    I don't know His name
    But I know He got off
    Cause He was there in my old house
    and held me close to His side
    As I hid there behind our couch
    The night that my parents died
