    This could be a pretty good thread.

    I'm interested to hear some of your favorite song lyrics (you can of course post more than one) not full songs just a sentence or two from a song, try to make them mean something or are inspirational... not "smack my bitch up"

    :)

    I will start.

    "Just trying to make ends meet. You're a slave to money then you die"
    -The verve - Bittersweet Symphony.

    I can't say what I want to,
    even if I'm not serious.
    Things like....
    "**** yourself,
    kill yourself,
    you piece of ****."

    People tell me what to say,
    what to think ,
    and what to play.

    I say...
    "Go **** yourself,
    you piece of ****.
    Why don't you go kill yourself?"

    Just kidding.

    "When you try your best but you don't succeed
    When you get what you want but not what you need
    When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
    Stuck in reverse

    And the tears come streaming down your face
    When you lose something you can't replace
    When you love someone but it goes to waste
    Could it be worse?"

    -Coldplay - Fix You




    "I don't care if it hurts, I wanna have control
    I want a perfect body, I want a perfect soul
    I want you to notice, when I'm not around
    You're so ****in special
    I wish I was special"

    -Radiohead - Creep

    If we burn our wings
    Flying too close to the sun
    If the moment of glory
    Is over before it’s begun
    If the dream is won --
    Though everything is lost
    We will pay the price,
    But we will not count the cost

    When the dust has cleared
    And victory denied
    A summit too lofty
    River a little too wide
    If we keep our pride --
    Though paradise is lost
    We will pay the price,
    But we will not count the cost

    And if the music stops
    There’s only the sound of the rain
    All the hope and glory
    All the sacrifice in vain
    [and] if love remains
    Though everything is lost
    We will pay the price,
    But we will not count the cost


    I had them play this at my Dad's service. :eek:

    BakedBeans, I have to say something right quick about the "smack my bitch up". One time my friend and I were in this LOUD bar and that prodigy song came on and we thought it said SNAP MY PICTURE and we were singing that! It really did sound like that at the time! Drunk dumb asses I know! :p

    Anyway, here is only ONE of my fav song lyrics:

    Well I will go down with this ship
    And I won't put my hands up and surrender
    There will be no white flag above my door
    I'm in love and always will be

    Dido, White Flag

    Twenty seconds on the back time
    I feel you on the run
    Never lived too long to make right
    I see you're doing fine
    And when I get that feeling
    I can no longer slide I can no longer run
    And when I get that feeling
    I can no longer hide for it's no longer fun

    Well, you can say what you want
    But it won't change my mind
    I'll feel the same about you
    And you can tell me your reasons
    But it won't change my feelings
    I'll feel the same about you

    What I am is what you want of me
    Now that I'm not there
    Took the tables away from you
    It's turned that I don't care
    And when I get that feeling
    I can no longer slide I can no longer run
    And when I get that feeling
    I can no longer hide for it's no longer fun

    I've said goodnight try to sleep tight
    Just dream of me
    Go close your eyes cause I'll close mine
    The sun will shine from time to time

    Say What You Want - Texas

    Oh I THOUGHT OF THIS SONG FIRST!!! No joke, thats funny, but I JUST LOVE ALL of Coldplays lyrics so quoting one just wasn't enough for me!! :) Shiver is a favorite song of mine from them!!

    On and on from the moment I wake,

    To the moment I sleep,

    I'll be there by your side,

    Just you try and stop me,

    I'll be waiting in line,

    Just to see if you care.

    Coldplay, Shiver, GREAT SONG!! :)

    You're a Rush fan?
    Heh... you're cooler than I thought. :p

    "Sadder still to watch it die/
    than never to have known it./
    For you, the blind who once could see/
    the bell tolls for thee."

    From "Wish you were here" by Pink Floyd:

    From "The Times They Are A-Changin'" by Bob Dylan:

    I love this one because I have no clue what it means: (I Am the Walrus - The Beatles)

    To me it always sounded like "coo coo cachoo" though.

    Waterdeep - Razor Light

    You set the table in your spirit
    entertain the devil for a while
    And then you laugh at all his jokes
    insisting it’s alright-
    it’s okay to smile
    but you are

    Dancing with the demons
    and walking on the wall that borders hell
    thinking “Right now, I’m not testing God,”
    but always wondering how you’d feel if you just fell?

    I’d like to say that it was simple
    like a dog you don’t want pregnant so you fix her
    But it’s a matter of unconscious sin
    I don’t know if you know it, but you’re been brewin’ up a strychnine elixer
    because you’re

    Are you walking darkly
    to avoid the razor light?
    Did you lose the taste of flesh and blood
    when you threw up late last night?
    Is your soul in some fine limbo
    between bitterness and lust?
    Can you talk about the cross these days
    without wincing in disgust?

    Well I built my life around you, did what I thought was right
    But you never cared about me, now i've seen the light
    Oh darlin'
    There aint no pleasin you

    There Aint No Pleasin You - Chas & Dave :D LOL

    I'm so pleased to have been able to quote Chas & Dave but I only wish you could all see me laughing like a child at the ridiculousness of it :)

    Ok then how about:

    Words are flying out like
    endless rain into a paper cup
    They slither while they pass
    They slip away across the universe
    Pools of sorrow waves of joy
    are drifting thorough my open mind
    Possessing and caressing me

    Across the Universe - The Beatles

    EDIT: Damn! Floyde beat me to it. That's what I get for having 'reply to topic' open for too long!

    2nd attempt to see if Floyde can beat me to this one :)

    I, I'm so in love with you
    Whatever you want to do
    Is all right with me
    'Cause you make me feel so brand new
    And I want to spend my life with you

    Since, since we've been together
    Loving you forever
    Is what I need
    Let me be the one you come running to
    I'll never be untrue

    Let's, let's stay together
    Lovin' you whether, whether
    Times are good or bad, happy or sad

    Al Green - Let's Stay Together

    I like your smile
    And your fingertips
    I like the way that you move your hips
    I like the cool way you look at me
    Everything about you is bringing me misery

    LOL, I probably would have beat you but I don't know who Al Green is. Good lyrics though. Across the Universe is so good I wouldn't mind if it got posted a few more times ;)

    Generals gathered in their masses,
    just like witches at black masses.
    Evil minds that plot destruction,
    sorcerers of death's construction.
    In the fields the bodies burning,
    as the war machine keeps turning.
    Death and hatred to mankind,
    poisoning their brainwashed minds.
    Oh lord, yeah!

    Politicians hide themselves away.
    They only started the war.
    Why should they go out to fight?
    They leave that role to the poor, yeah.

    Time will tell on their power minds,
    making war just for fun.
    Treating people just like pawns in chess,
    wait till their judgement day comes, yeah.

    Now in darkness world stops turning,
    ashes where the bodies burning.
    No more War Pigs have the power,
    Hand of God has struck the hour.
    Day of judgement, God is calling,
    on their knees the war pigs crawling.
    Begging mercies for their sins,
    Satan, laughing, spreads his wings.
    Oh lord, yeah!

    --Black Sabbath, War Pigs​
    (Apologies, I couldn't decide which snippet would be best so I posted the whole song.)
