    Hi, i wanna make a nice topic for once :)

    What lyrics to any song have a sentimental value to you?
    I doesn't have to be paramore, anything at all. Just type them, and whatever they mean to you, if anything.

    if you just think they're pretty lyrics then that'll do too :)
    or something you can relate to?
    Post the artist too, incase people are interested.

    "I'm not coming back,
    I've done something so terrible,
    I'm terrified to speak but you'd expect that from me,
    I'm mixed up, I'll be blunt,
    Now the rain is just washing you out of my hair
    and out of my mind,
    I'm keeping an eye on the world
    There's so many thousands of feet off the ground
    I'm over you now, I'm at home in the clouds
    Towering over you head" - Remembering Sunday by All Time Low & Juliet Simms.

    It'll help people gain some knowledge is artists they don't know too well I suppose too.
    Anywayy get going :]

Every word's a new regret if you say it right, right
Every wound can be forgotten in the right light
Oh nostalgia, I don't need you anymore
'Cause the silent days are over and the beat is at my door

They might try to tell you how you can live your life
But don't, don't forget it's your right
To do whatever you like, you like

(chorus)
'Cause you could be your own spotlight (a-yo, a-yo)
You could be your own spotlight (a-yo, a-yo)
You could be your own spotlight
You could be the star, you can shine so bright (a-yo, a-yo)
You could be your own--
'Cause they're gonna tell you all the rules to break
To take away that light from somebody, somebody now
You could be your own spotlight (a-yo, a-yo)
You could be your own spotlight

Depression is a little like happy hour, right?
So, it's always gotta be happening somewhere on any (any) given (given) night
Oh nostalgia, I don't need you anymore
I just hope, my perfect stranger, that my kids look more like yours

'Cause they might try to tell you how you can live your life
But don't, don't forget it's your right
To do whatever you like, you like

(chorus)

'Cause I had, a little bit of bad luck
No wonder this crumbling world's stuck
A little sweetness keeps just out of reach
'Cause compassion is something that they just don't, just don't teach, teach

(chorus)

Breathe air you're not used to
Tread floors you don't fall through
Make waves
You crash a symbol hard
Follow no one, always play the wrong card
Waste days, in foreign places
Shed light, on your better side
Reassure me that you'll wait for me, wait for me as long as it takes now

Hold my breath, I'll hold my breath

Until you see me in your dreams
We'll stay awake beneath the trees
We'll watch the buildings turn to dust
A sky of diamonds just for us
You are the risk I'll always take
The only branch I'll never break
Those fears we'll blow them all way

Fight fires in your best clothes,
Touch skin with your eyes closed,
Chase thunder
With the volume down
Pack a suitcase, wander to the next town
Force quit, on your losing streak
Solve a riddle in a magazine, be tongue in cheek
Tell me that we're still too young,
That we're still too young and I'll hold my tongue

penguinlover's picture

What if I wanted to break
Laugh it all off in your face
What would you do?

What if I fell to the floor
Couldn't take all this anymore
What would you do, do, do?

Come break me down
Marry me, bury me
I am finished with you

What if I wanted to fight
Beg for the rest of my life
What would you do?

You say you wanted more
What are you waiting for?
I'm not running from you

Come break me down
Marry me, bury me
I am finished with you

Look in my eyes
You're killing me, killing me
All I wanted was you

I tried to be someone else
But nothing seemed to change
I know now, this is who I really am inside

Finally found myself
Fighting for a chance
I know now, this is who I really am

Come break me down
Marry me, bury me
I am finished with you, you, you

Look in my eyes
You're killing me, killing me
All I wanted was you

Come, break me down
Break me down
Break me down

What if I wanted to break?
What if I, what if I, what if I
Bury me, bury me

As I pass in a car buried under the influence
The city's driving me out of my mind
I've seen a child, he's caught in the sad trap of gravity
He falls from the lowest branch of the apple tree
And lands in the grass and weeps for his dignity
Next time he will not aim so high
Yeah, next time, neither will I
Now a mother takes loans out, sends her kids off to colleges
Her family's reduced to names on a shopping list
While, a coroner kneels beneath a great, wooden crucifix
He knows there's worse things than being alone
And so I've learned to retreat at the first sign of danger
I mean, why wait around, if it's just to surrender?
An ambition, I've found, can lead only to failure

chelseaGAGAwilliamsaaliyah1's picture

i have a really good one that literally makes me cry at times. it's the title track to lauryn hill's solo effort, miseducation of lauryn hill.
here's the entire lyrics back to back:

My world it moves so fast today
The past it seems so far away,
And life, squeezes so tight that i can't breathe

And every time i've tried to be
What someone else thought of me
So caught up, i wasnt able to acheive

And deep in my heart
The answer, it was in me
And I made up my mind
To define my own destiny

I look at my environment,
And wonder where the fire went,
What happened to everything we used to be?

I hear so many cry for help,
Searching outside of themselves
Now I know that His strength is within me

And deep in my heart
The answer, it was in me
And I made up my mind
To define my own destiny

And deep in my heart
The answer, it was in me
And I made up my mind
To define my own destiny

it's really totally my jam. i can imagine it be someone's life saver--that is if they view it for what it is.

violet cullen's picture

I am such a sucker
And I'm always the last to know
My insides are copper
And I'd kill to make them gold
Conversation got me here: another night alone in the city
So make my bed the grave and shovel dirt onto my sheets

Every friend we ever had in common
I will sever the tie, sever the tie with you
You can thank your lucky stars
That everything I wish for will never come true

When you go, I will forget everything about you
When you go, I will forget everything about you

I've seen sinking ships go down with more grace than you

allweknowisRIOT_2's picture

Can't make my own decisions
Or make any with precision
Well maybe you should tie me up
So I don't go where you don't want me

You say that I been changing
that I'm not just simply aging
Yeah how could that be logical?
Just keep on cramming ideas down my throat

You don't have to believe me
But the way I, way I see it
Next time you point a finger
I might have to bend it back
Or break it, break it off
Next time you point a finger
I'll point you to the mirror

If God's the game you're playing
Well we must get more acquainted
Because it has to be so lonely
To be the only one who's holy

It's just my humble opinion
But it's one that I believe in
You don't deserve a point of view
If the only thing you see is you

You don't have to believe me
But the way I, way I see it
Next time you point a finger
I might have to bend it back
Or break it, break it off
Next time you point a finger
I'll point you to the mirror

This is the last second chance
(I'll point you to the mirror)
I'm half as good as it gets
(I'll point you to the mirror)
I'm on both sides of the fence
(I'll point you to the mirror)
Without a hint of regret
I'll hold you to it

I know you don't believe me
But the way I, way I see it
Next time you point a finger
I might have to bend it back
Or break it, break it off
Next time you point a finger
I'll point you to the mirror

I know you won't believe me
But the way I, way I see it
Next time you point a finger
I might have to bend it back
Or break it, break it off
Next time you point a finger
I'll point you to the mirror

violet cullen's picture

And hatred is a sharp knife held by the blade
It's cutting in your palm until you feel no pain
And burning in your eyes with a righteous rage
'Til the ashes blow away

And love is a thing that you can't define
Though you try with all your might through the riddles and rhymes
But it'll fly you like a kite; it'll throw you to the ground
But that's the best thing I have found.

And it comes and it goes
Where it's headed no one knows
And we come and we go
Like the winter and the spring
Losing everything just to gain it back again

And oh, how pretty is the middle of June?

emmadilemma's picture

I hate this town
It's so washed up
And all my friends don't give a fuck.

violet cullen's picture

Nothing gets so bad,
A whisper from your father couldn't fix it
He whispers like a bridge, it's a river spanned

Take all that you have,
And turn it into something you would miss if
Somebody threw that brick, shattered all your plans

Time to get the seeds into the cold ground.
It takes a while to grow anything,
Before it's coming to the end

Before you put my body in the cold ground,
Take some time to warm it with your hand,
Before it's coming to an end

It's coming to an end, yeah.
It's coming to an end, yeah.

Do you miss the blend,
Of colors she left in your black and white field?
Do you feel condemned just being there?

I am not your friend.
I am just a man who knows how to feel

MidnightFelicis97's picture

Hand in mine
Into your icy blues
And then I'd say to you
We could take to the highway
With this trunk of ammunition too
I'd end my days with you
In a hail of bullets

I'm trying
I'm trying
To let you know just how much
You mean to me
And after
All the things
We put each other through and

I would drive on to the end with you
A liquor store or two
Keeps the gas tank full
And I feel like
There's nothing left to do
But prove myself to you
And we'll keep it running

But this time
I mean it
I'll let you know just how much
You mean to me
As snow falls
On desert sky
Until the end of everything
I'm trying
I'm trying
To let you know
How much you mean
As days fade
And nights grow
And we go cold

Until the end
Until this pool of blood
Until this
I mean this
I mean this
Until the end of

I'm trying
I'm trying
To let you know
How much you mean
As days fade
And nights grow
And we go cold

But this time
We'll show them
We'll show them all
How much we mean
As snow falls
On desert sky
Until the end of every

All we are
All we are
Is bullets I mean this
All we are
All we are
Is bullets I mean this
All we are
All we are
Is bullets I mean this
All we are
All we are
Is bullets I mean this

As lead rains
Will pass on through
Our phantoms
Forever
Forever
Like scarecrows
That fuel this flame
We're burning
Forever
And ever
Know how much
I want to show you
You're the only one
Like a bed of roses
There's a dozen reasons in this gun

And as we're falling down
And in this pool of blood
And as we're touching hands
And as we're falling down
And in this pool of blood
And as we're falling down
I'll see your eyes
And in this pool of blood
I'll meet your eyes
I mean this forever

violet cullen's picture

If it makes you less sad, I will die by your hand
Hope you find out what you are; already know what I am
And if it makes you less sad, we'll start talking again
You can tell me how vile I already know that I am
I'll grow old, start acting my age
It'll be a brand new day in a life that you hate
A crown of gold, a heart that's harder than stone
And it hurts to hold on, but it's missed when it's gone

Call me a safe bet, I'm betting I'm not
I'm glad that you can forgive, only hoping as time goes, you can forget

If it makes you less sad, I'll move out of this state
You can keep to yourself, I'll keep out of your way
And if it makes you less sad, I'll take your pictures all down
Every picture you paint, I will paint myself out
It's cold as a tomb, and it's dark in your room
When I sneak to your bed to pour salt in your wounds
So call it quits, or get a grip
You say you wanted a solution; you just wanted to be missed

Call me a safe bet, I'm betting I'm not
I'm glad that you can forgive, only hoping as time goes, you can forget
So you can forget, you can forget

You are calm and reposed
Let your beauty unfold
Pale white, like the skin stretched over your bones
Spring keeps you ever close
You are second-hand smoke
You are so fragile and thin, standing trial for your sins
Holding on to yourself the best you can
You are the smell before rain
You are the blood in my veins

Call me a safe bet, I'm betting I'm not
I'm glad that you can forgive, only hoping as time goes, you can forget

violet cullen's picture

I wanna be the surgeon that cuts you open,
That fixes all of life's mistakes
I wanna be the house that you were raised in
The only place that you feel safe

I wanna be a shower in the morning
That wakes you up and makes you clean
I know I'm just the weather against your window
As you sleep through a winter's dream

Someones churning the earth
Someone's stirring the sky
Every color at once in a column of lights
Bacteria breeds on a microscope slide
The worm in my heart's the apple of your eye

Don't adore what is impossible
We have built this ship in a wine bottle
But if you knew how it worked,
We'd have to grow old

Someone's eating at you, wakes you up in the night
If you're digging the past, who knows what you'll find
Read the newspaper print off the microfiche slide
And you're holding your breath for the rest of your life

Don't you love what is intangible
I have built this ship in a wine bottle
But if you knew who I was
You would never grow old

@tragically_hip: what is that song?

MisguidedGhosts's picture

"Can we pretend that Airplanes
in the night sky are like
shooting stars, I could really use a
wish right now, wish right now, wish right now.

Can we pretend that Airplanes
in the night sky are like
shooting stars, I could really use a
wish right now, wish right now, wish right now.

Yeah, I could use a dream or a genie or a wish
to go back to a place mush simplier than this.
'Cuz after all the partyin' and smashin' and crashin'
and all the glitz and the glam and the fashion

And all the pandimonium and all the madness
there comes a time when you find to the blackness
and when your staring at the phone in your lap
and your hoping but them people never call you back.

But thats just how the story unfolds
You get another hand soon after you fold.
And when your plans unravel in the sand
What would you wish for if you had one chance?

So airplane, airplane sorry im late.
I'm on my way so dont close that gate.
And if I dont make that then I'l switch my flight
and I'll be right back at it by the end of the night."

When I first heard this song on the radio I fell inlove because I have had alot of hardship in my life. This song just reminds me that even though there may be no 'stars' at the moment, there will be something flying over me and making it all better. For me the 'Airplane' is my friends or reading and listening to music.

"There's a vulture
on my shoulder
telling me to give in
Always hissin
right in my ear
like its coming from my own head" - Fixed At Zero by VersaEmerge

I love these lyrics cause they just say how easy it is to be convinced to give up, on anything. I actually have a tattoo for these lyrics planned. On my shoulder I want the vulture from VersaEmerges album cover and to have the branch go across my chest and form into the words "GIVE IN"

Awesome discussion topic btw!

Candice the Ghost's picture

Evanescence My Immortal

I'm so tired of being here, suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave, I wish that you would just leave
Your presence still lingers here and it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal, this pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now, I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal, this pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me, I've been alone all along

When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me, me, me

violet cullen's picture

In this act I’ll disguise those dead eyes
Stretch tight the lips
A glistening gum line
Mouth curtains pulled I shine

My yellow stage light smile distracting
Dancing puppets on short saliva strings
So you’ll find comfort in a lie

My overbite clenched, set in place
Like a stack of polished bright white dinner plates
Hand in my pocket, straight jacket mind
It’s getting easy

I wish I had a single thought the least bit legitimate enough
To open up my mouth and spit accuracy
It’s getting easy

In this act I’ll disguise those dead eyes
Lay flat the tongue
Let the supplement slide down
Everything is fine

And my brain is cloudy, leveled out
The pill dissolved
It’s flushing out everything I care about and not replacing it with anything substantial

So I’m on my hands and knees
Like a martyr calling out his final plea
The executioner looks exactly like me, it’s me
It’s getting easy

smiley_5's picture

Yeah

Well let's go back to the middle of the day that starts it all
I can't begin to let you know just what I'm feeling
And now the red ones make me fly
And the blue ones help me fall
And I think I'll blow my brains against the ceiling
And as the fragments of my skull begin to fall
Fall on your tongue like pixie dust
Just think happy thoughts and we'll fly home
We'll fly home
You and I
We'll fly home

C'mon

Well now I'm back in the middle of the day that starts it all
I can't begin to let you know just what I'm feeling
And now the red ones make me fly
And the blue ones help me fall
And I think I'll blow my brains against the ceiling now
We'll fly home
You and I
We'll fly home

Now honestly, that's what I said to her
What I said to her

Think happy thoughts
Think happy thoughts
Think happy thoughts
Think happy thoughts
Think happy thoughts
Think happy thoughts
Think happy thoughts
Think happy thoughts
Think ha.. WOO!

Headfirst for Halos- My Chemical Romance

LydiaConspires's picture

And even though the moment passed me by I still can't turn away
I saw the dreams you never thought you'd lose tossed along the way
Letters that you never meant to send lost or thrown away

And now we're grown up orphans that never knew their names
Don't belong to no one that's a shame
You could hide beside me maybe for a while
And I won't tell no one your name
I won't tell them your name

Scars are souvenirs you never lose, the past is never far
Did you lose yourself somewhere out there, did you get to be a star
Don't it make you sad to know that life is more than who we are

You grew up way too fast and now there's nothing to believe
And reruns all become our history
A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio
And I won't tell no one your name
I won't tell them your name

I think about you all the time
But I don't need the same
It's lonely where you are, come back down
And I won't tell them your name

Joe Gibson's picture

I've never seen a smile that can light the room like yours
It's simply radiant, I feel more with everyday that goes by
I watch the clock to make my timing just right

Would it be okay?
Would it be okay if I took your breath away?

violet cullen's picture

Did you expect it all to stop at the wave of your hand?
Like the sun's just going to drop if it's night you demand
Well, in the dark we're just air so the house might dissolve
But once we are gone, who's gonna care if we were ever here at all?
Well, summer's going to come, it's gonna cloud our eyes again
No need to focus when there's nothing that's worth seeing
So we trade liquor for blood in an attempt to tip the scales
I think you lost what you loved in that mess of details
They seemed so important at the time
But now you can't even recall any of the names, faces, or lines
It's more the feeling of it all
Well, winter is going to end, I'm going to clean these veins again
So close to dying that I finally can start living

The Invisible Ninja's picture

The sun was so low that day
Staring into burning eyes
Watch as I walk away from you
From the lies that you made my life

Making me feel so lost and helpless
Running won't help me
Now it's too late

Closing my eyes to the skies makes it worse
Look down and I've been here for far too long
Too long to contemplate

The sun was so low that day
Staring into burning eyes
But it's far too late to contemplate leaving you alone against your will
"Running won't help you now."

Look down and try to forget me
Staring into your burning eyes
All that is left is the sound of your fragile voice
Echoing in my wondering mind

The sun was so low that day
I had to turn from your gaze
Only to reassure
Running won't help

---

There, there must be
An easier way
To release these feelings

So, so far from home
I need your voice
To hold my head together

So, so far from home
I need your voice
To lift my lonely state of mind

You, you can't but wait
for me to return
For me to show you how I felt

These wounds have bled,
And pages fly by
I need to feel you right by my side

So, so far from home
I need your voice
To hold my head together

So, So far from home
I need your voice
To lift my lonely state of mind

Oh there must be
An easier way
Oh there must be
An easier way
Oh there must be
An easier way
To release these feelings!

(Whoa whoa!)

As the sea breeze hits my lungs
It takes me back, to where I belong
To where I belong

violet cullen's picture

As we fall into sequence
And we're eating our young
Remain silent and still for modesty
When the splints have been broken
And they can't help you now
Do you pray with your eyes closed naturally?

Follow me into nowhere
Woven with the utmost care

If I'm lost please don't find me
if I jump let me sink
We descended from no one
With a wink

The Invisible Ninja's picture

The years I put into this
It could take a second
To tear down years of work
And we won't get these days
Back again (back again)
I can't understand why I've been put here
I'm stuck in a world of sympathy
With nobody watching over me
And the words roll over and over
Yet our hearts will never be lifted
Someone, tell me how I've ended up here
With nobody watching over me?
We need to bring back the days we used to love
Before all the colour drains away
I can't understand why I've been put here
I'm stuck in a world of sympathy
With nobody watching over me
I can't understand why I've been put here
I'm stuck in a world of sympathy
With nobody watching over me
To all those not living in the here and now
To all those not living in the here and now
To all those not living in the here and now
To all those (sing it loud)
Where did they go?
The days we used to know
Where did they go?
Have I forgotten what it feels like?
Where did they go / where did they go
The days we used to know
Where did they go / where did they go
Have I forgotten what it feels like?
And the words roll over and over
Yet our hearts will never be lifted

violet cullen's picture

I should not have hid where my heart can't follow
Because this grace gets so far and too hard to swallow
I've been running from Saul, he's been giving chase
When I look in his eyes
All I see is his face

Are you still on my back after all these years?
Chasing me out of hell and my nice veneers?
I don't know how you stand when you've got no floor
Or how you can breathe with your hands on board

I just want to be not what I am today
I just want to be better than my friends might say
I just want a small part in your passion play

Do you hear when I call in the midst of wrong?
Do you hear these here words while I sing you this song?
Are you caught up in me like I heard you say?
Or just some big cashier that I'll have to pay

violet cullen's picture

What if I fall and hurt myself
Would you know how to fix me?
What if went and lost myself
Would you know where to find me?
If forgot who I am
Would you please remind me?

You can take everything i have

Isabel_3's picture

Was I left behind?
Someone tell me, tell me I survived
Don't look so surprised that I'm home, but just for tonight
With rough hands and sore eyes
So don't speak, I am tired
Let's just live through this lie

She says I swear too much
She says a lot of things
Well I'd swear every other word if I could
For her I'll make an attempt
Sometimes love isn't about how much someone suits you
But how much you're willing to change to suit them

All my bones are dust,
And my heart's sealed with rust
These hands will always be rough
I know this won't count for much
