Song of the Moment
« on: July 03, 2010, 08:15:08 AM »
let`s start this again.  I don`t think it exists yet on the new forum.

I Will Survive - Cake cover

At first I was afraid
I was petrified
I kept thinking
I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights
Just thinking how you'd done me wrong
And I grew strong
I learned how to get along
So now you're back
From outer space
I just walked in to find you here
Without the look upon your face
I should have changed my f***ing lock
I would have made you leave your key
If I'd have known for just one second
You'd be back to bother me

Oh now go,
Walk out the door
Just turn around now
You're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to break me with desire
Did you think I'd crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
As long as I know how to love I know I'll be alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
I will survive
I will survive
Yeah, yeah

It took all the strength I had
Just not to fall apart
I'm trying hard to mend the pieces
Of my broken heart
And I spent oh so many nights
Just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high
And you see me
With somebody new
I'm not that stupid little person still in love with you
And so you thought you'd just drop by
And you expect me to be free
But now I'm saving all my loving
For someone who's loving me

Oh now go,
Walk out the door
Just turn around now
You're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to break me with desire
Did you think I'd crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
As long as I know how to love I know I'll be alive
I've got all my live to live
I've got all my love to give
I will survive
I will survive
Yeah, yeah


it`s like a totally different song.   it even kinda changes the meaning.

Never heard that version, but it sounds like I'd like it. The change in words is pretty funny.

In My Heart -> My Favorite Highway

This life is so crazy
So could you please remind me
It's simple
It's easy
With you right here beside me

Cause I don't even wanna try to get by without you
That's the reason why I'm writing this song
About the way you make me feel
It's never felt so real, no, no

I have you in my heart
No distance could keep me apart, love
You are the only thing
That's keeping my heart still beating
Cause I just can't let you go
Even if you wanted to
You know that you'll always have my heart
And I'm not letting you go
And I'm not letting you go

If you wake up and your bad day
Feels more like a cliche
With each kiss, I'll replace
Yhe sad look on your face

Cause I don't even wanna try to get by without you
That's the reason why I'm writing this song
About the way you make me feel
It's never felt so real, no, no

I have you in my heart
No distance could keep me apart, love
You are the only thing
That's keeping my heart still beating
Cause I just can't let you go
Even if you wanted to
You know that you'll always have my heart
And I'm not letting you go
And I'm not letting you go


2000 miles is a really annoying thing to have in the way in a relationship. :P
I'm a princess even if my kingdom is pixelated.

Beautiful Balloon - Mew

There's a shooting star
Can you tell me how I'm supposed to screw this up?
Add my tremolo, likes to shine on yours and mine
All my emptiness is confined in metric rhyme
Make all your lies come true
I've been a liar too
Follow the things you need
Make your whole life complete
There's a puking girl
There's a puking girl trying to define herself
If spontaniously congealed into nothing
Idiot
You could have become you
There's a friend trapped in this dream too
It's like I said before, like in the notes you tore
Laying there on the floor
Untill you knock the door
What did you hope to find?
Leaving it all behind
Should I say goodnight to you?
Really I.. Tender feelfull sin
Tell me honestly, am I adorable?
In her beautiful balloon
She's got hands but she cannot reach the moon
Wish I was gay,
then I wouldn't have to play all her games
Get her started.
How could I not forget?

This song describes my life to a T at this point. I could say it to a few people.

King of Anything-Sara Bareilles

Keep drinking coffee, stare me down across the table
While I look outside
So many things Id say if only I were able
But I just keep quiet and count the cars that pass by

Youve got opinions, man
Were all entitled to em, but I never asked
So let me thank you for your time, and try not to waste anymore of mine
And get out of here fast

I hate to break it to you babe, but Im not drowning
Theres no one here to save

Who cares if you disagree?
You are not me
Who made you king of anything?
So you dare tell me who to be?
Who died and made you king of anything?

You sound so innocent, all full of good intent
Swear you know best
But you expect me to jump up on board with you
And ride off into your delusional sunset

Im not the one whos lost with no direction
But youll never see
Sara Bareilles King Of Anything lyrics found on http://www.directlyrics.com.com/sara-bareilles-king-of-anything-lyrics.html
Youre so busy making maps with my name on them in all caps
You got the talking down, just not the listening

And who cares if you disagree?
You are not me
Who made you king of anything?
So you dare tell me who to be?
Who died and made you king of anything?

All my life Ive tried to make everybody happy
While I just hurt and hide
Waiting for someone to tell me its my turn to decide

Who cares if you disagree?
You are not me
Who made you king of anything?
So you dare tell me who to be?
Who died and made you king of anything?

Who cares if you disagree?
You are not me
Who made you king of anything?
So you dare tell me who to be?
Who died and made you king of anything?

Let me hold your crown, babe.

Down So Long -> The Getaway Car

Hello, long lost friend
How have you gone and been?
Without me
Without me

I can't believe my head
I thought you might be dead
At least I'd hoped
You might be

...

So give me love, love, love
Let it rain, rain, rain
Give me something easy
It's just not enough
Give me something for the pain
I can't do nothing right at all
Give me love, love, love
Something strong
Something easy
I'm a princess even if my kingdom is pixelated.

You And Me--Lifehouse

What day is it? And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive
I can't keep up and I can't back down
I've been losing so much time

'Cause it's you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it's you and me and all other people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you

One of the things that I want to say just aren't coming out right
I'm tripping on words
You've got my head spinning
I don't know where to go from here

'Cause it's you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove
And it's you and me and all other people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you

There's something about you now
I can't quite figure out
Everything she does is beautiful
Everything she does is right

'Cause it's you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it's you and me and all other people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you
and me and all other people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove
And it's you and me and all other people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you

What day is it?
And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive

Girl Like That -> Every Avenue

What can you do with a girl like that?
Taking everything giving nothing back
Stuck between her legs when she sets her trap
What can you do with a girl like that?

She's knows what she's doing
Standing there with her headphones in
Skinny jeans and a tattoo
Her smile makes me wonder where she's been

I would make a move if I thought there was a chance she'd let me in

What can you do with a girl like that?
Taking everything giving nothing back
Stuck between her legs when she sets her trap
What can you do with a girl like that?

I can't wait for the weekend
Downtown where we all sneak in
Everybody's trying to get some
She takes a drink and then she laughs at them
I can't coast gotta move slow (??)
Watching her as she works the room
Does she see me? Does she know I
Wear my confidence like a costume?

I would make a move if I thought there was a chance she'd let me in

What can you do with a girl like that?
Taking everything giving nothing back
Stuck between her legs when she sets her trap
What can you do with a girl like that?

It's like a curse that's she's put on me
Sweaty hands, shaking knees
Tell her that I want her to move too fast.
That's what you do with a girl like that.

I think it could be me she's looking at
And that's a smile I see
So now I know that I can make a move
'cause I think there's a chance she'll let me in. <3

2000 lightyears away - Green day

this is their REALLY old stuff.  pre dookie.
I sit alone in my bedroom
Staring at the walls
I've been up all damn night long
My pulse is speeding
My love is yearning

I hold my breath and close my eyes and dream about her
Cause she's 2000 light years away
She holds my malakite so tight so...
Never let go
Cause she's 2000 light years away

I sit outside and watch the sunrise
Lookout as far as i can
I cant see her, but in the distance
I hear some laughter
We laugh together.

Village on the Sand - Blackmore's Night

I saw three ships a-sailing in from across the sea
Strangers ne'er were welcome but for curiosity
But come they did and when they did ready they did stand
And things would never be the same in our Village on the Sand...

When the ships pulled in to dock the villagers did hide
When trouble came it usually was brought upon the tide
When the pirates disembarked they were making plans
And from then on things were not the same in our Village on the Sand...

The smugglers came into our town and many sought to run
I stood my ground bravely and came face to face with one
Time and travel on the seas weathered face and hand
He was different than the others in my Village on the Sand...

He told me of the years he'd spent on the stormy seas
Then he spoke a poet's words of philosophy
And when he had to leave again he asked me for my hand
And I knew I'd never see again my Village on the Sand...

bringing back this thread.

This Velvet Glove - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Close to my skin
I�m falling in
Someone who�s been

Sittin� by the phone
I�m left alone
In another zone

John says to live above hell
My will is well

No one is waiting
For me to fail
My will could sail yeah

It�s such a waste to be wasted
In the first place
I want to taste the taste of
Being face to face with common grace
To meditate on the warmest dream
And when I walk alone I listen
To our secret theme

Your solar eyes are like
Nothing I have ever seen
Somebody close
That can see right through
I�d take a fall and you know
That I�d do anything
I will for you

Sailin� for the sun
�Cause There is one
Knows where I�m from

I care for you
I really do I really do

Come closer now
So you can lie
Right by my side

Sit alone in the sun
I wrote a letter to you
Getting over myself

Your solar eyes are like
Nothing I have ever seen
Somebody close
That can see right through
I�d take a fall and you know
That I�d do anything
I will for you

Your solar eyes are like
Nothing I have ever seen
Somebody close
That was made for you
I�d take a fall and you know
That I�d do anything
I will for you

Close to my skin
Someone who�s been
I�m a falling in

Disasters are
Just another star
Falling in my yard

John says to live above hell
My will is well

Long to be with
Someone to tell
I love your smell

Oh wow, been awhile since I've seen this thread. :)  I'll post one of my favorite songs:

Two Is Better than One--Boys Like Girls (with Taylor Swift)

I remember what you wore on that first day,
you came into my life and I thought, "Hey,
you know this could be something."
'Cause everything you do and words you say,
you know that it all takes my breath away
and now I'm left with nothing.

So maybe it's true
that I can't live without you.
And maybe two is better than one.
There's so much time to figure out the rest of my life,
and you've already got me coming undone.
And I'm thinking two is better than one.

I remember every look upon your face,
the way you roll your eyes, the way you taste.
You make it hard for breathing.
'Cause when I close my eyes and drift away,
I think of you and everything's okay,
I'm finally now believing

That maybe it's true
that I can't live without you.
And maybe two is better than one.
There's so much time to figure out the rest of my life,
and you've already got me coming undone.
And I'm thinking two is better than one.

I remember what you wore on that first day,
you came into my life and I thought, "Hey..."

Maybe it's true that I can't live without you,
and maybe two is better than one.
There's so much time to figure out the rest of my life,
and you've already got me coming undone.
And I'm thinking ooooh,
I can't live without you.
'Cause, baby, two is better than one
There's so much time to figure out the rest of my life
but I'll figure it out when all is said and done.
Two is better than one.

Two is better than one.

Time Bomb - Our Lady Peace


I checked my pulse, said all my prayers
Walked a thousand miles, haven't gotten anywhere
The table's set, change is gonna come
I'm a patient man, but it's been too long

I'm waiting for something to happen
yeah I'm waiting for something to happen

I'm on that road, been driving fast
Keep my eyes straight and stay away from the past
I miss your face and the way you laugh
Remember me if I don't make it back

I'm waiting for something to happen
I'm waiting for something to happen
Anticipating that something will happen
I'm waiting for something good to happen

So now I see my own reflection staring back at me
And I'm traveling with no direction,
I'll follow faithfully

I'm waiting for something to happen
I'm waiting for something to happen

I Checked my pulse, said all my prayers
Walked a thousand miles, haven't gotten anywhere
I wonder, yeah I wonder

The table's set, change is gonna come
I'm a patient man, but it's been too long
I wonder, yeah I wonder

Fred Jones, part 2 - Ben Folds (featuring John McCrea)

Fred sits alone at his desk in the dark
There's an awkward young shadow that waits in the hall
He's cleared all his things and he's put them in boxes
Things that remind him: 'Life has been good'

Twenty-five years
He's worked at the paper
A man's here to take him downstairs
And I'm sorry, Mr. Jones
It's time

There was no party, there were no songs
'Cause today's just a day like the day that he started
Noone is left here that knows his first name
And life barrels on like a runaway train
Where the passengers change
They don't change anything
You get off; someone else can get on

And I'm sorry, Mr. Jones
It's time

Streetlight shines through the shades
Casting lines on the floor, and lines on his face
He reflects on the day

Fred gets his paints out and goes to the basement
Projecting some slides onto a plain white
Canvas and traces it
Fills in the spaces
He turns off the slides, and it doesn't look right
Yeah, and all of these bastards
Have taken his place
He's forgotten but not yet gone

And I'm sorry, Mr. Jones
And I'm sorry, Mr. Jones
And I'm sorry, Mr. Jones
It's time
