    Here's my songs.....hits home ever time I hear Them.

    By: STRUNG OUT

    "Too Close To See"

    Album: "Twisted By Design"

    A cup of two day old coffee
    You're feeling like yourself again
    You're still on your own
    You've survived another night
    In this dingy room with the same four walls
    lookin' in the mirrors gettin' easier these days
    that old friend anger is losing its hold on you
    the key to survival in this crazy world
    and it's good to see you're still standing strong
    not too long ago you were tearing at a world
    that would never let you in
    strung out, outcast turned away
    you kept your face to the ground
    and fought the world with your silence
    and so the seasons change
    and the people change
    and the good times come
    and the good times go
    found yourself in a winless race
    fighting for a cause you never believed
    its easy to regret not so easy to forget
    all the stupid things that used to hold you down
    you gotta brake that chain and move on
    cuz I know I've seen it in your eyes before
    to surrender now to throw it all away
    is to sacrifice but you can't repay
    in a world that don't owe you shit
    you gotta think for yourself
    and fight every bit of that piece of mind
    that keeps you going on
    gets you outta bed and out that door
    step back take a look around and soon
    you'll find there's something more
    that'll come your way
    with a little patience
    it will all work out for you in the end
    this is my song to a friend that never needed anyone until now
    some times you get too close to see
    a different side of what life could be
    and if you stare too long
    it all becomes a blur and its easy to forget
    just who we are
    don't stare to hard, just take a look around...


    STRUNG OUT

    "Swan Dive"

    Album: "Exile in Oblivion"

    Well it's hard to find the words to say,
    what no one would say to you when were round,
    the loneliest caged bird sings the saddest song,
    and you were never one to keep us guessing long.
    If you ask me what went wrong?
    I'll tell you nobody is doin' fine, we're all fucked up and doin' time.
    The gates of Eden elude people like ourselves.
    I think about you every now and then, more now than I ever did when you were down.
    All reservations pass when chances slip away, all songs play better from confusion.
    Now I sit and I wonder how, everyday gets a little shorter,
    always feel I'm losin' out somehow, don't wanna let another day go by without creation.
    Now if you ask what went wrong?
    When your fallin' you're the only one that doesn't see the distance,
    sacrifice yourself to save yourself.
    Now we don't always walk the line and broadcast how we hurt sometimes,
    and still at times it seems nobody wants to know.
    Give me some time I might remember everything you ever did or said to me.
    If you ask me what went wrong?
    I'll tell you nobody is doin' fine, we're all fucked up and doin' time.
    The gates of Eden elude people like you and I.
    I think about you every now and then, more now than I ever did when you were down.
    All reservations pass when chances slip away, all songs play better from confusion. Confusion...

    Hybrid : Dreaming your Dreams

    Where you're going, I'll follow you (Follow you)
    and What you're hearing, I'm singing to you
    And when you're sleeping - I'm dreaming your dreams for you


    Good song.

    I also like Matthew Herberts "Addiction".

    when i get depressed about not having a g/f, this song always gives me hope that love is out there for me:

    Love Song by Tesla

    So you think that it's over,
    Say your love has fin'lly reached the end.
    Any time you call, night or day,
    I'll be right there for you if you need a friend.
    It's gonna take a little time.
    Time is sure to mend your broken heart.
    Don't you even worry, pretty darlin'.
    I know you'll find love again. Yeah.

    (Chorus)

    Love is all around you.
    Love is knockin' outside the door.
    Waitin' for you is this love made just for two
    Keep an open heart and you'll find love again, I know.
    Love is all around you.
    Love is knockin' outside the door.
    Waitin' for you is this love made just for two
    Keep an open heart and you'll find love again, I know.

    (Chorus/Outro)

    Love will find a way.
    Darlin', love is gonna find a way,
    Find its way back to you.
    Love will find a way.
    So look around, open your eyes.
    Love is gonna find a way.
    Love is gonna, love is gonna find a way.
    Love will find a way.
    Love's gonna find a way back to you, yeah,
    I know. I know. I know.

    comeback kid-"wake the dead"

    "Coming alive, something stirs inside
    This isn't over yet
    Shake off the dirt
    Swallow regret
    Stop living under the weight
    Living under the weight of regret
    Your regrets
    DON'T LOSE HOPE
    Don't let it happen to you
    DON'T LOSE HOPE
    Which side are you gonna choose?
    Cuz I believe, I believe it's in you RISE!"

    band is halfway decent but i love that verse

    I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off
    I wish I was a sacrifice but somehow still lived on
    I wish I was a sentimental ornament you hung on
    The christmas tree, I wish I was the star that went on top


    ~


    i saw a star beneath the stairs
    glowing back before decent
    and in the morning
    their is nothing left
    but whats inside of me

    am i the star beneath the stairs
    am i the ghost up on the stage
    am i your anything?


    ~


    Hello darkness, my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again,
    Because a vision softly creeping,
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence.


    ~


    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace...


    ~


    I'll be waving my hand watching you drown
    Watching you scream
    Quiet or loud

    And maybe you should sleep
    And maybe you just need, a friend
    As clumsy as you've been
    There's no one laughing
    You will be safe in here

    From First to Last -- "Ride the Wings of Pestilence"

    Hiding behind the shadows
    I'll be waiting in the dark
    to drive this blade straight through your heart
    I'll drag your body to the car
    as blood races down my arm
    I think everyone will wonder where you are, tonight

    I'll hide you in my walls
    your body will never be found
    I'll wear your skin as a suit
    Pretend to be you, your friends will like you more than they used to

    Dear diary my teen angst bullshit has a body count
    I believe it's 6 going on 7 now

    I've been dreaming about you
    in a pool of your own blood
    with your eyes gouged out
    by the work of my thumbs
    the scent of your insides
    from under the floorboards
    the perfect perfume
    for settling a score.

    I'll hide you in my walls
    your body will never be found
    I'll wear your skin as a suit
    Pretend to be you, your friends will like you more than they used to
    Pretend to be you, your friends will like you more than they used to

    Ride the wings of....
    Ride the wings of....
    Ride the wings of....
    Ride the wings of pestilence!
    Ride the wings of pestilence!
    Ride the wings of pestilence!
    Ride the wings of pestilence!
    Ride the wings of pestilence!
    Ride the wings of pestilence!
    Ride the wings of pestilence!
    Ride the wings of pestilence!

    Eric Clapton - Tears in heaven, Layla, Cocaine and many others..

    Tears in Heaven


    War - Why Can't We Be Friends

    Staind - Outside, Its Been Awhile, Epiphany, For You

    Three Doors Down - Here without you (has sentimental meaning because myself and my girlfriend have endured a long distance relationship for nearly 2 years after she went away to college and her family moved) When I'm gone

    A ton of stuff by Hendrix, Deep Purple, Aerosmith, and modern artists. These were all just songs that were off the top off my head.

    T.I. - Motivation

    "You can look me in my eyes, see I'm ready for whatever
    Anythang don't kill me, make me better
    I ain't dead nigga, you can take the fame and the chedda
    And the game, any deal, I'm still a go-getter
    Take my freedom for the moment but it ain't fo-ever
    I got the spirit of a god, heart of a dope dealer
    I'm a king, seen hangin' with some cold killas
    I ain't never back down or ran from no nigga
    I ain't sat down yet, pimp, standin' gorilla
    Even if I'ma all alone or standin' with four niggaz
    Tell'em jump, pimpin' it don't get no realer
    5'9" with the soul of a 6'4" nigga..."

    Helps w/.... motivation, keeps me goin w/ school. i hate losing.

    Am I the only one who goes out of his way to not listen to lyrics? The human voice is a fantastic instrument; I think lyrics can get in the way of an otherwise great song though.
    That's why I like listening to music sung in other languages... It keeps the lyrics out of the way but still includes voice as an instrument.

    It's also probably the reason I can never come up with lyrics for any of my music. :)

    I was going to post that, LOL...


    and
    Metallica: Fuel
    GIMMEFUELGIMMEFIREGIMMETHATWHICHIDESIRE!!! HUUUU!!

    and

    Louis Armstrong.. What a wonderful world. It just puts me in a great mood.

    I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom for me and you
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

    I see skies of blue and clouds of white
    The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

    The colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people going by
    I see friends shakin' hands, sayin' "How do you do?"
    They're really saying "I love you"

    I hear babies cryin', I watch them grow
    They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
    Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world

    Oh yeah
