Bear McCreary - Prelude to war
It seems totally incredible to me now that everyone spent that evening as though it were just like any other. From the railway station came the sound of shunting trains, ringing and rumbling, softened almost into melody by the distance ...

Girl Next Door -> Saving Jane
Small town homecoming queen
She's the star in this scene
There's no way to deny she's lovely
Perfect skin, perfect hair
Perfumed hearts everywhere
Tell myself that inside she's ugly
Maybe I'm just jealous
I can't help but hate her
Secretly I wonder if my boyfriend wants to date her

She is the prom queen I'm in the marching band
She is a cheerleader I'm sitting in the stands
She gets the top bunk I'm sleeping on the floor
She's Miss America and I'm just the girl next door

Senior class president
She must be heaven sent
She was never the last one standing
A backseat debutante
Everything that you want
Never to harsh or too demanding
Maybe I'll admit it
I'm a little bitter
Everybody loves her but I just wanna hit her

She is the prom queen I'm in the marching band
She is a cheerleader I'm sitting in the stands
She gets the top bunk I'm sleeping on the floor
She's Miss America and I'm just the girl next door
Oh and I'm just the girl next door

I don't know why I'm feeling sorry for myself
I spend all my time wishing that I was someone else

She is the prom queen I'm in the marching band
She is a cheerleader I'm sitting in the stands
I get a little bit, she gets a little more
She's Miss America and... she's Miss America
I'm just the girl next door...
I'm a princess even if my kingdom is pixelated.

You may be noticing a theme in my songs by now.  :P

http://www.contemplator.com/ireland/avenge.html

Avenging and bright fall the swift sword of Erin,
On him who the brave sons of Usna betray'd!
For ev'ry fond eye he hath waken'd a tear in,
A drop from his heart-wounds shall weep o'er her blade!

By the red cloud that hung over Conner's dark dwelling,
When Ulad's three champions lay sleeping in gore
By the billows of war, which so often, high swelling,
Have wafted these heroes to victory's shore.

We swear to revenge them! no joy shall be tasted,
The harp shall be silent, the maiden unwed,
Our halls shall be mute and our fields shall lie wasted,
'Till vengeance is wreak'd on the murderer's head!

Yes, monarch! tho' sweet are our home recollections,
'Tho sweet are the tears that from tenderness fall;
Tho' sweet are our friendships, our hopes, our affections,
Revenge on a tyrant is sweetest of all!

This thread should be stickied *can never find it when she wants to* XD

Falling for the First Time -> BNL
I'm so cool, too bad I'm a loser
I'm so smart, too bad I can't get anything figured out
I'm so brave, too bad I'm a baby
I'm so fly, that's probably why it
Feels just like I'm falling for the first time

I'm so green, it's really amazing
I'm so clean, too bad I can't get all the dirt off of me.
I'm so sane, it's driving me crazy
It's so strange, I can't believe it
Feels just like I'm falling for the first time

Anyone perfect must be lying, anything easy has its cost
Anyone plain can be lovely, anyone loved can be lost
What if I lost my direction? What if I lost sense of time?
What if I nursed this infection? Maybe the worst is behind
It feels just like I'm falling for the first time
It feels just like I'm falling for the first time

I'm so chill, no wonder it's freezing
I'm so still, I just can't keep my fingers out of anything
I'm so thrilled to finally be failing
I'm so done, turn me over cause it
Feels just like I'm falling for the first time

Anything plain can be lovely, anything loved can be lost
Maybe I lost my direction, what if our love is the cost?
Anyone perfect must be lying, anything easy has its cost
Anyone plain can be lovely, anyone loved can be lost
What if I lost my direction? What if I lost sense of time?
What if I nursed this infection? Maybe the worst is behind
I'm a princess even if my kingdom is pixelated.

Omgsh! I <3 the formatting! XD

I <3 the song too. :P

Well, I might as well post a song here :P

Too Far Gone -> All American Rejects
Please speak slowly
My heart is learning
Teach me heartache
Stop this burning


Change Your Mind -> All American Rejects
Don't run away,
Start feeling fine.
It's better than your worst, worst day.
No words to say, I'll give you mine,
And pocket all the hurt, just stay.
Don't run away.
It's better than your worst, worst day.

And when the sky is falling,
Don't look outside the window.
Step back and hear I'm calling.
Give up, don't take the fastroad.

It's just your doubt that binds you.
Just drop those thoughts behind you, now.
Change your mind.
Let go too soon.

lol, thanks. :P

This is one I literally heard for the first time yesterday, but it was so good I decided to sing it for the contest too: :P 


Say It's Possible -> Terra Naomi

I see the lights are turning
And I look outside the stars are burning
Through this changing time
It could have been anything we want
It's fine salvation was just a passing thought
It was just a passing thought

Don't wait, act now
This amazing offer won't last long
It's only a chance to save the path we're on
I know there are more exciting things to talk about
And in time we'll sort it out
And in time we'll sort it out

And though they say it's possible to me
I don't see how it's probable
I see the course we're on
Spinning farther from what I know
I'll hold on
Tell me that you won't let go
Tell me that you won't let go

And truth is such a funny thing
With all these people
Keep on telling me
They know what's best
And what to be frightened of
And all the rest are wrong
They know nothing about us
They know nothing about us

And though they say it's possible to me
I don't see how it's probable
I see the course we're on
Spinning farther from what I know
I'll hold on
Tell me that you won't let go
Tell me that you won't let go

I'm not alright [x4]

And though they say it's possible to me
I don't see how it's probable
I see the course we're on
Spinning farther from what I know
I'll hold on
Tell me that you won't let go
And though they say it's possible to me
I don't see how it's probable
I see the course we're on
Spinning farther from what I know
I'll hold on
Tell me that you won't let go
Tell me that you won't let go

This could be something beautiful
Combine our love into something wonderful
But times are tough I know
And the pull of what we can't give up takes hold

*listens to entry* O.O *will have to record much better song if she wants to win* XD

Catch Your Wave -> The Click Five
In the middle of the night
That's when you caught my eye
I chased you round in memories
Through the breeze and the trees and you tease me
But hey

The clock's turning around
And you're still playing these games
It's such a waste to bring me down, down, down
Don't bring me down cause

Hey girl,I wanna catch your wave
Hey girl,I wanna drift away with you
Hey girl,you've got an undertow
Hey girl,hey girl, don't wanna let you go

When I turned sixteen
That's when I started to dream
I chased you round in memories
Through the breeze and the trees and you tease me
But hey

Well every princess has her knight
And I'm still in it for the fight
Not givin' in, I'm gonna win, win, win
I'm gonna win cause

Hey girl,I wanna catch your wave
Hey girl,I wanna drift away with you
Hey girl,you've got an undertow
Hey girl,hey girl don't wanna let you go

I'm never gonna let you go

Hey girl, I wanna catch your wave
Hey girl, I wanna drift away with you
Hey girl, you've got an undertow
Hey girl, hey girl, don't wanna let you

Hey girl, I wanna catch your wave
Hey girl, I wanna drift away with you
Hey girl, you've got an undertow
Hey girl, hey girl, don't wanna let you
Hey girl, hey girl don't wanna let you go
I'll never let you go
Alright
I'm a princess even if my kingdom is pixelated.

Stay With You -> Goo Goo Dolls (The first song they played at the concert)
I'll stay with you
The walls will fall before we do
Take my hand now
We'll run forever
I can feel the storm inside you
I'll stay with you
I'm a princess even if my kingdom is pixelated.

 Over the Stone

http://www.contemplator.com/wales/overston.html

Over the stone, the old gray stone,
Let me ponder here alone,
Through all weather we go together
Ancient stone, thou good old stone.
Of the many friends I've seen,
Thou the truest friend has been,
Some forget me, some have fled,
Some are false, and some are dead,
Changing never constant ever,
Still I find thee, dear old stone.

Standing here, thou silent stone,
What a world thou must have known!
Deeds of glory, lost to story,
Hast thou witness'd ancient stone.
Here beneath the grass, 'tis said,
Many warriors bones are laid,
Fighting for their land they fell,
None but thou can truly tell.
Secrets keeping, ever sleeping,
Dream'st thou of the past, old stone?

Are You Happy Now? -> Michelle Branch
Now, don’t just walk away
Pretending everything’s ok
And you don’t care about me
And I know there’s just no use
When all your lies become your truths and I don’t care... yeah, yeah, yeah

Could you look me in the eye
And tell me that you’re happy now, ohhh, ohhh
Would you tell it to my face or have I been erased,
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?

Do you really have everything you want?
You can't ever give somethin' you ain't got
You can’t run away from yourself

Could you look me in the eye?
And tell me that you're happy now, yeah, yeah
Come on, tell it to my face or have I been replaced,
Are you happy now? Ohhh, ohhhh
Are you happy now?

Would you look me in the eye?
Could you look me in the eye?
I’ve had all that I can take
I'm not about to break

Big Machine -> Goo Goo Dolls (Well, parts of it. XP)
Now your world is way too fast
Nothing's real and nothing lasts
And I'm aware

I'm still here but you don't trust at all
And I'll be waiting

Take what's yours and leave the rest
So I'll survive
God it's good to be alive

I'm torn in pieces
I'm blind and waiting for you
My heart is reeling
I'm blind and waiting for you

It's hard to deal

Now this angry little girl
Drowning in this petty world
And I'm who you run to
Swallow all your bitter pills
That's what makes you beautiful
You're all or not
I don't need what you ain't got


What a Scene -> Goo Goo Dolls
Lies weigh more than truth
Innocence looks good on you
Now everybody wants to know your name

Tell Me Baby -> Red Hot Chili Peppers

When You Were Young -> The Killers

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now - here he comes

He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentlemen
Like you imagined when you were young

Can we climb this mountain
I don't know
Higher now than ever before
I know we can make it if we take it slow
Let's take it easy
Easy now, watch it go

We're burning down the highway skyline
On the back of a hurricane that started turning
When you were young
When you were young

And sometimes you close your eyes
and see the place where you used to live
When you were young

They say the devil's water, it ain't so sweet
You don't have to drink right now
But you can dip your feet
Every once in a little while

 Legend claims this to be the last song of a dying Welsh bard. 

http://www.contemplator.com/wales/david.html

Dinas Emlinn, lament for the moment is nigh
When mute in the woodlands thy echoes shall die;
No more by sweet Teivi Cadwallon shall rave,
And mix his wild notes with the wild dashing wave.

In spring and in autumn thy glories of shade,
Unhonour'd shall flourish, unhonour'd shall fade;
For soon shall be lifeless the eyes and the tongue,
That viewed them with rapture, with rapture had sung.

Thy sons, Dinas Emlinn, may march in their pride,
And chase the proud Saxon from Prestatyn's side;
But where is the harp shall give life to their name?
And where is the bard shall give heroes their fame?

And, oh, Dinas Emlinn! thy daughters so fair!
Who heave the white bosom, and wave the dark hair;
What tuneful enthusiast shall worship their eye,
When have of their charms with Cadwallon shall die?

Then adieu silver Teivi! I quit thy loved scene,
To join the dim choir of the bards who have been;
With Lewarch, and Meilor, and Merlin the old,
And sage Taliesin, high harping to hold.

Adieu, Dinas Emlinn! still green be thy shades,
Unconquer'd thy warriors, and matchless thy maids;
And thou, whose faint warblings my weakness can tell,
Farewell my loved harp! my last treasure farewell!

Hands -> Jewel

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we're all okay
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I won't be made useless
Won't be idled with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For it lights darkness most fear

My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own and
I am never broken

Poverty stole your golden shoes
It didn't steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But I knew it wasn't ever after
We'll fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what's right
'Cause where there's a man who has no voice
There I shall go see

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own and
I am never broken

In the end, only kindness matters
In the end, only kindness matters

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray [x3]

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own and
I am never broken

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own and
I am never broken
We are never broken

We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's heart

We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's mind

We are God's eyes
We are God's hands
We are God's heart

Only Time -> Enya

Who can say where the road goes
Where the day flows?
Only time

And who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose?
Only time

(interlude)

Who can say why your heart sighs
As your love flies?
Only time

And who can say why your heart cries
When your love dies?
Only time

(interlude)

Who can say when the roads meet
That love might be
In your heart

And who can say when the day sleeps
If the night keeps all your heart?
Night keeps all your heart

(long interlude)

Who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose?
Only time

And who can say where the road goes
Where the day flows?
Only time

Who knows?
Only time

Who knows?
Only time

I'm Like A Bird -> Nelly Furtado

You're beautiful and that's for sure
You'll never ever fade
You're lovely but it's not for sure
That I won't ever change
And though my love is rare
Though my love is true

I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
(And baby all I need for you to know is)
I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
(And baby all I need for you to know is)

Your faith in me brings me to tears
Even after all these years
And it pains me so much to tell
That you don't know me that well
And though my love is rare
Though my love is true

I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
(And baby all I need for you to know is)
I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
(And baby all I need for you to know is)

It's not that I wanna say goodbye
It's just that every time you try to tell me, me that you love me
Each and every single day I know
I'm going to have to eventually give you away
And though my love is rare
And though my love is true
Hey I'm just scared
That we may fall through

I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
(And baby all I need for you to know is)
I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
(And baby all I need for you to know is)
(repeat x 3)
