    I kinda like how there are all kinds of lyrics in songs. Deep, mysterious or incredibly funny. So this is a thread to share, maybe discuss them and also find inspiration if you want to write songs yourself. I know from myself that I connect lyrics with situations I've been in. I would love to read any stories you want to share. Also, there are these lyrics that you heard wrong all your life, those would fit in here too. :D

    I don't think it makes sense to post whole songs, so maybe just pick a few lines or something?


    This is from the song How To Save A Life by The Fray:

    "Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend,

    Somewhere along in the bitterness,

    And I would have stayed up with you all night,

    Had I known how to save a life."

    Life's a piece of shit

    When you look at it

    Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.

    You'll see it's all a show

    Keep 'em laughing as you go

    Just remember that the last laugh is on you. And always look on the bright side of life...

    Always look on the right side of life...

    Last night I had a dream about you

    In this dream I'm dancing right beside you

    And it looked like everyone was having fun

    the kind of feeling I've waited so long

    Don't stop, come a little closer

    As we jam the rhythm gets stronger

    There's nothing wrong with just a little, little fun

    We were dancing all night long

    The time is right

    To put my arms around you

    You're feeling right

    You wrap your arms around too

    But suddenly I feel the shining sun

    Before I knew it this dream was all gone

    Oh, I don't know what to do

    About this dream and you

    I wish this dream comes true

    Oh, I don't know what to do

    About this dream and you

    We'll make this dream come true

    Why don't you play the game?

    Why don't you play the game?

    "Life goes on

    The world turns without me

    Without me

    Life goes on

    The light ends the dark

    Mistakes made forgot

    Through years and gods

    Forever we are Infinite"

    "Load up on guns, bring your friends It's fun to lose and to pretend She's over bored and self assured Oh no, I know a dirty word... I'm worse at what I do best And for this gift I feel blessed " Smells like Teen Spirit ~ Nirvana

    "And I don't want the world to see me 'Cause I don't think that they'd understand When everything's meant to be broken I just want you to know who I am And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming Or the moment of truth in your lies When everything feels like the movies Yeah, you'd bleed just to know you're alive" Iris ~ Goo goo Dolls (Favorite song <3 )

    I woke up staring at the sun

    you were there too and the world just felt like one

    You gave me a smile and you told me what you knew

    That as long as loves around I will never fear the blues

    Since then I put my heart in everything I do for you

    Because I still hear you now

    Even though it's in the past

    You showed me how to make a precious moment last

    I sing for you, I sing it loud

    If you're there just let me know somehow

    Because at the end of the day

    I do everything to make you proud

    I believe in nothing, Not the end and not the start

    I believe in nothing, Not the earth and not the stars

    I believe in nothing, Not the day and not the dark

    I believe in nothing, But the beating of our hearts

    I believe in nothing, One hundred suns until we part

    I believe in nothing, Not in sin and not in God

    I believe in nothing, Not in peace and not in war

    I believe in nothing, But the truth in who we are

    we all know the girls that i am talking about

    well they are time bombs and they are ticking

    and the only question's when they'll blow up

    and they'll blow up; we know that without a doubt

    cause they're those girls, yeah you know those girls that let their emotions get the best of them

    and i've contrived some sort of a plan to help my fellow man

    let's get emotional girls to all wear mood rings

    so we'll be tipped off to when they're ticked off

    cause we'll know just what they're thinking

    cause what they're thinking...

    she's so pretty but she but doesn't always act that way

    her mood's out swinging on the swing set almost every day

    she said to me that she's so happy it's depressing

    and all i said was "someone get that girl a mood ring"

    if it's drama you want then look no further

    they're like the real world meets boy meets world meets days of our lives

    and it just kills me how they get away with murder

    they'll anger you then bat their eyes; those pretty eyes that watch you sympathize

    cause when it's black (it) means watch your back because you're probably

    the last person in the world right now she wants to see

    and when it's blue it means that you should call her up immediately

    and ask her out because she'll most likely agree

    and when it's green it simply means that she is really stressed

    and when it's clear it means she's completely emotionless (and that's all right i must confess)

    mood ring oh mood ring

    oh tell me will you bring

    the key to unlock this mystery

    of girls and their emotions

    play it back in slow motion

    so i may understand the complex infrastructure known as the female mind

    Most songs by Motion City Soundtrack have brilliant lyrics. But this one is:

    Reliant K - Who I am Hates Who I've Been.

    I watched the proverbial sunrise

    Coming up over the Pacific and

    You might think I'm losing my mind,

    But I will shy away from the specifics...

    'cause I don't want you to know where I am

    'cause then you'll see my heart

    In the saddest state it's ever been.

    This is no place to try and live my life.


    Stop right there. That's exactly where I lost it.

    See that line. Well I never should have crossed it.

    Stop right there. Well I never should have said

    That it's the very moment that

    I wish that I could take back.


    I'm sorry for the person I became.

    I'm sorry that it took so long for me to change.

    I'm ready to be sure I never become that way again

    'cause who I am hates who I've been.

    Who I am hates who I've been.

    I talk to absolutely no one.

    Couldn't keep to myself enough.

    And the things bottled inside have finally begun

    To create so much pressure that I'll soon blow up.

    I heard the reverberating footsteps

    Synching up to the beating of my heart,

    And I was positive that unless I got myself together,

    I would watch me fall apart.

    And I can't let that happen again

    'cause then you'll see my heart

    In the saddest state it's ever been.

    This is no place to try and live my life.

    [Pre-Chorus x2]


    Who I am hates who I've been

    And who I am will take the second chance you gave me.

    Who I am hates who I've been

    'cause who I've been only ever made me...

    So sorry for the person I became.

    So sorry that it took so long for me to change.

    I'm ready to be sure I never become that way again

    'cause who I am hates who I've been.

    Who I am hates who I've been.

    But I won't ask you to be colour blind

    'Cause if you pick the fruit, girl, you're sure to find

    The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice

    I could say it ain't so but darlin', what's the use?

    The darker the chocolate, the richer the taste

    And there's where it's at

    Now run and tell that

    Run and Tell That, Elijah Kelly

    Belongs to the 2007 Hairspray movie soundtrack, and highlights racism.

    'cause we control the chaos

    In the back of our minds

    Our problems seem so small

    But they grow on us like gravity

    But gravity still makes us fall

    We're no strangers to love

    You know the rules and so do I

    A full commitment's what I'm thinking of

    You wouldn't get this from any other guy

    I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling

    Gotta make you understand

    "When I was a kid the things I did where hidden under the grid,

    young and naive I never believed that love could be so well hid.

    With regret, I'm willing to bet to say the older you get,

    It gets harder to forgive and harder to forget.

    It gets under your shirt like a dagger at work,

    the first cut is the deepest but the rest still flipping hurt.

    You build your heart of plastic, you're cynical and sarcastic

    and end up in the corner on your own"

    (There's too many Passenger songs to choose from, this will do. It's called The Wrong Direction)

    A bit fitting from recent musings.

    Behind the glass, she's safe where no one can reach her
    Roses with thorns just make her bleed
    A fragile porcelain angel breaks easily

    @Skyfire "I love everything you do When you call me fucking dumb for the stupid shit I do Wanna ride a bike with you Fully undressed No training wheels for you."
