Hello! Post your favorite song lyrics here.

Try to keep it relatively short, cut out any repetitions in the lyrics. Also post the artist and song title so people can listen to it if they want to.

Here's my current favorite;

Like autumn leaves
His sense fell from him
An empty glass of himself
Shattered somewhere within
His thoughts like a hundred moths
Trapped in a lampshade
Somewhere within
Their wings banging and burning
On through endless nights
Forever awake he lies shaking and starving
Praying for someone to turn off the light

Tik Tok by Midnight Beast (sorta' parody...)

Flush before I wee wee,
get arrested daily, ly
Trying to get a break of some titties...

I'm bad really mad
but dont tell my mom and dad
pucker up kiss my butt
cuz im bloody fooocking nuts
Hear the bass, skinny waist
lets copy pokerface like oh oh oh, oh oh oh

Not a great song but it's funny :')

This is my favorite song because it is very true to something that happened not too long ago. Lyrics are all in italic, what perfectly explains my situation is in bold and I changed it a little and added some in red to make it fit.

Title: Cry
Artisit: Kelly Clarkson
Album: All I Ever Wanted
Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvlzajqf-tg

1st verse
If anyone asks,
I'll tell them we boththat I just moved on
When people all stare
I'll pretend that I don't hear them talk
Whenever I see you,
I'll swallow my pride
and bite my tongue
Pretend I'm okay with it all
Act like there's nothing wrong

Chorus
Is it over yet?
Can I open my eyes?
Is this as hard as it gets?
Is this what it feels like to really cry?
Cry

Verse 2
If anyone asks,
I'll tell them we just grew apart
Yeah what do I care
If they believe me or not
Whenever I feel
Your memory is breaking my heart
I'll pretend I'm okay with it all
Act like there's nothing wrong

Chorus

Bridge
I'm talking in circles
I'm lying, they know it
Why won't this just all go away

Chorus

This is probably one of my favorite songs. Not cause of the beat or anything, but mainly cause this is a song that Lil Wayne actually had a deep meaning in.

Artist: Lil Wayne ft. Robin Thicke
Song: Tie My Hands Down
Album: Tha Carter 3


Robin Thicke:
[Stuff]

Lil Wayne:
Yeah, some say tragedies is hard to get over
But sometimes that tragedy means its over
Soldier
From the Academy League of Rollers
I deny being down, though they seen the howlers
My shoulders is strong I prove them wrong
I ain't doing nothing but moving on
Let the truth be known
But they talk that freedom matters
And didn't even leave a ladder
Damn

Robin Thicke:
[Stuff pt.2]

Lil Wayne:
I knock on the door
Hope isn't home
Faith's not around
The luck's all gone
Don't ask me what's wrong
Ask me what's right
And I'ma tell you what's life
And did you know I lost everything
But I ain't the only one
First came the hurricane
Then the morning sun
Excuse me if I'm on one
And don't trip if I light one
I walk a tight one
They try tell me keep my eyes open
My whole city under water
Some people still floating
And they wonder why black people still voting
'Cause your president still chokin'
Take away the football team
The basketball team
Now all we got is me to represent New Orleans
No Governor, no help from the Mayor
Just a steady beatin' heart
And a wish and a prayer
Let's pray

Robin Thicke:
[Stuff pt. 3]


Lil Wayne:
And if you come from under that water
Then there's fresh air
Just breathe, baby
God's got a blessing to spare
Yes, I know the process is so much stress
But it's the progress that feels the best
'Cause I came from the projects straight to success
And you're next so try
They can't steal your pride, it's inside
Then find it and keep on grinding
'Cause in every dark cloud there's a silver lining
I know

Bold = Best parts ^__^

Here's an excerpt from one of my favourites right now.

Song: Slania's Song
Band: Eluveitie
Album: Slania

A ulati, mon atron,
A brogi'm cumbrogon!
Exs tou' uradiu uorrobirt
Cenetlon clouision
Cauaron caleton

A blatu blande bitos bliuon!
A, m' atrila, a ma Helvetia!

Oh sovereignty of my fathers,
Oh land of my countrymen!
From your root sprang
A glorious nation
Of dure heroes

Oh dulcet blossom of the living world!
Oh my fatherland, oh my Helvetia!

I think it's pretty.

Hmm quite a few. Depends if I want them meaningful or brutal oh well I'll post some.
Bolded part's are what I like most.

Song: NJ Legion Iced Tea
Artist: A Day To Remember
Album: Homesick

Get up, get out,
This is your wake up call,
We run this town and you can fight us all,
We keep on coming back for more,
And don't think you can hold us down,
We'll tear this building down,
Try to be careful what you say

Give it up, your tact is astounding,
Find your place and leave us with some peace of mind,
You do this every time

So here's to another banner year,
we've crossed that thin line,
don't try to hold us here,
If for just this once you'd think of us,
I hope you're happy with yourself,

Get up, get out,
who's gonna break our fall,
When we don't back down, they're gonna seem so small,
We keep em running for the door,

Just when things will come back around,
It's too late for them, they're heading straight for a meltdown,
I'm not a part of your cliché,

Give it up, your tact is astounding,
Find your place and leave us with some peace of mind,
You do this every time

So here's to another banner year,
We've crossed that thin line,
don't try to hold us here,
And if for just this once you'd think of us,
I hope you're happy with yourself,


Just think about, just think about everything,
Be careful now, be careful what you say,
Run Away

This is the life we chose, this is the life I lead,
They can never take this from me


So here's to another banner year,
We've crossed that thin light don't try to hold us here,
And for just this once you'd think of us,
I hope you're happy with yourself,


So here's to another banner year,
I hope you're happy with yourself.


Song: Ocean Breathes Salty
Artist: Modest Mouse
Album: IDK D:
Your body may be gone, I'm gonna carry you in.
In my head, in my heart, in my soul.
And maybe we'll get lucky and we'll both live again.
Well I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. Don't think so.

Well that is that and this is this.
You tell me what you want and I'll tell you what you get.
You get away from me. You get away from me.
Collected my belongings and I left the jail.
Well thanks for the time, I needed to think a spell.
I had to think awhile. I had to think awhile.

The ocean breathes salty, won't you carry it in?
In your head, in your mouth, in your soul.
And maybe we'll get lucky and we'll both grow old.
Well I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I hope so.

Well that is that and this is this.
You tell me what you want and I'll tell you what you get.
You get away from me. (You get away from me) You get away from me.
Collected my belongings and I left the jail.
Well thanks for the time, I needed to think a spell.
I had to think awhile. (I had to think awhile) I had to think awhile.

Well that is that and this is this.
Will you tell me what you saw and I'll tell you what you missed,
when the ocean met the sky. (You missed, you missed)
You missed when time and life shook hands and said goodbye. (You missed)
When the earth folded in on itself. (You missed)
And said "Good luck, for your sake I hope heaven and hell (You missed, you missed)
are really there, but I wouldn't hold my breath." (You missed, you missed)
You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death? (You missed, you missed)
You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death?

The ocean breathes salty, won't you carry it in?
In your head, in your mouth, in your soul.
The more we move ahead the more we're stuck in rewind.
Well I don't mind. I don't mind. How the hell could I mind?

Well that is that and this is this.
You tell me what you want and I'll tell you what you get.
You get away from me. (You get away from me) You get away from me.

Well that is that and this is this.
Will you tell me what you saw and I'll tell you what you missed,
when the ocean met the sky. (You missed, you missed)
You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste the afterlife?

I'll add more later.

"I forgot to be strong.
Aching to shout,
It wears me out."
- Swimmer's Chant, Mew

I just... it's so true. Dx

Also:

"From my boat,
I can see your house.
And when the lights are on,
I can watch you move,
And hear the wind whispering your name."
- 156, Mew

It's 3:18, mouth tastes like the corpse of every pregnant teen.
The minutes are hours, and the hours are days
I feel infected by your presence, you speak in tongues.
I smell the lies dancing off your blackened lungs

For Stevie Wonders eyes only- Bring me the Horizon.

Artist: Maximo Park
Album: Quicken the Heart
Song: A Cloud of Mystery

Calm those vowels down
No one's thinking of you right now.
She's dressed up
It's her duty to the town.
It's empty. It's vast.
But it imposes it's will.

In a crowded room
Her painted features smothered in the groom
Already resigned
At night she strips away the face
That she creates
The mirror sighs

Why can't we always meet
Under a cloud of mystery?
The noise from a hundred miles
Working through memories

Big budget, Showbiz exit
She'll go far.
Acting coy was her favourite ploy
It quickly loses its charm.

The frosted cheek
You turned, will add
To your mystique
He burns for you
I threw myself into your world
Only to come up short.

Why can't we always meet
Under a cloud of mystery?
The noise travelled a hundred miles
Working through memories

Kept for a Thursday afternoon
Before the time when you withdrew
Why can't we always meet
Under a cloud of mystery?

Bathroom lights start the evening
Where the buildings skim the air
Hairspray curls push the cheek
As they swoon on a wooden dance floor
There's nothing worse than taking a chance
On an outdated dance.

Why can't we always meet
Under a cloud of mystery?
The noise travelled a hundred miles
Cursing through memories

Kept for a Thursday afternoon
Before the time when you withdrew
Why can't we always meet
Under a cloud of mystery?

It not that the lyrics are particularly powerful, I just love the way that Paul Smith sings.

This is currently my favorite.
Not only does it have the catchiest beat known to man but the lyrics also rock

Cage the Elephant - Ain’t No Rest For the Wicked Lyrics

I was walking down the street,
When out the corner of my eye
I saw a pretty little thing approaching me.
She said “I’ve never seen a man
Who looks so all alone,
Could you use a little company?
If you pay the right price
Your evening will be nice,
And you can go and send me on my way.”
I said “You’re such a sweet young thing
Why you do this to yourself?”
She looked at me and this is what she said,

Chorus
“Oh, there ain’t no rest for the wicked,
Money don’t grow on trees.
I got bills to pay,
I got mouths to feed,
There ain’t nothing in this world for free.
I know I can’t slow down,
I can’t hold back,
Though you know, I wish I could.
Oh no there ain’t no rest for the wicked,
Until we close our eyes for good”.

Not even fifteen minutes later
I’m still walking down the street,
When I saw the shadow of a man creep out of sight.
And then he swept up from behind
he put a gun up to my head,
He made it clear he wasn’t looking for a fright.
He said “Give me all you’ve got
I want your money not your life,
But you try to make a move I won’t think twice.”
I told him “You can have my cash
But first you know I got to ask
What made you want to live this kind of life?”

Chorus

Well now a couple hours passed
And I was sitting at my house,
The day was winding down and coming to an end.
So I turned on the TV
And flipped it over to the news,
And what I saw I almost couldn’t comprehend.
I saw a preacher man in cuffs he’d taken money from the church,
He stuffed his bank account with righteous dollar bills.
But even still I can’t say much
Because I know we’re all the same,
Oh yes we all seek out to satisfy those thrills.

Chorus

Alrighty.
I know, I know, this is the whole song, but it's all great, I really couldn't decide of which part.

Last Drop Falls
Sonata Arctica
Silence
When I'm looking in your eyes
Everything seems to fade away
After all these years we had do I know you now
Have I trusted blindly in your love, too many times

You said: "hey, my love, I'm sorry but we can't go on 'cause
I'm in love with someone else"
Tell me, what do you want me to say
When you treat me this way

Oh I love you, maybe?
And I hope it goes away
Oh, how I want you daily
I know it's gonna stay

You are so self-satisfied
Always ready for a ride
Double crossing, lousy cheat, love you anyway
You have warm and tender devil's soul, you are so low

I can hear you say: "I'm sorry, should we still go on,
I'm not in love with that someone else"
Tell me, what do you want me to say
When you treat me this way

Oh I love you, maybe
And I hope it goes away
Oh, how I want you daily
Tell me now that...

I have found the wh*** in you
Why can't I tell you "NO"?
Time will show, the last word is for me
If you fail to see the problem we have, one room full of walls
Jar of love isn't dry until the last drop falls

The moment I will step aside, you're ready for another ride
Walking in the cool night air without underwear
You have red light burning in your soul, I've seen the glow

In every dream I have I say: "I'm not in love with you"
But every day I say I do
You have messed with my head so many times
Forced me to love you [spoken]

Now that...
I have found the wh*** in you
why Can't I tell you "NO"?
Time will show, the last word is for me
If you fail to see the problem we have, one room full of walls
I will cry until the last drop falls.. (X2)

Yeah. I absolutely adore this song, it has so much emotion in it.
