Lyrically Speaking

If you've read this blog long enough, you know there is precious little that I love more than music. People not included. There are quite a few people I love more than I love music. It's a different kind of love though so it doesn't quite count. ;) If I had an obsession, it would be music. I love all kinds. It depends on the mood I'm in what I listen to but it's always an eclectic mix. So today, I'm posting a bunch of lyrics from some of my favorite songs.

"Now don't you be afraid
We can always talk about it
No need to medicate
Cause I know you're strong without it" -Heaven (Little By Little) by Theory Of A Deadman

"You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true." -Redneck by Lamb Of God

"Out on the road there are fireflies circling
Deep in the woods, where the lost souls hide
Over the hill there are men returning
Trying to find some peace of mind
Sleep my child
Under the fog there are shadows moving
Don't be afraid, hold my hand
Into the dark there are eyelids closing
Buried alive in the shifting sands" -Death Whispered A Lullaby by Opeth

"I say the damnedest things when you're on top of me." - I Almost Told You That I Love You by Papa Roach

"Why is it so hard
To find someone
Who cares about you
When it's easy enough to find
Someone who looks down on you
Why is it so hard to find
Someone who can keep it
Together when you've come undone
Way is it so hard
To find someone
Who cares about you" - Someone Who Cares by Three Days Grace

"Soap won't wash away your shame." - Shame by Depeche Mode

"I don't wanna be the girl who laughs the loudest
Or the girl who never wants to be alone
I don't wanna be that call at 4 o'clock in the morning
'Cos I'm the only one you know in the world that won't be home" -Sober by P!nk

"I feel your love surrounding me
Strong enough that I can believe
There won't ever be a storm that I can't weather
Cause you hold me together" -You Hold Me Together by Dierks Bentley

"Send me over...taste the day
Blink in fragments...and gone away
Captured moments...hold the frame
Mold me, build me, lead me on
I'm only growing older" - A Season's End by Embodyment

"The quiet scares me because it screams the truth." -Sober by P!nk

"To see you when I wake up
is a gift I didn't think could be real.
To know that you feel the same as I do
is a three-fold, Utopian dream.
You do something to me that I can't explain." - I Miss You by Incubus

"No I don't need a reason to be breathing.
Just here doin' what I can.
No I don't want a family who would damn me
and resent everything I am
I don't need to prove to all the ones who
Feel that I need to fit in." - Sacrifice by Theory Of A Deadman

"All the wants you waste
All the things you've chased
And it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger
But there's no one around
Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castle crumbled
And you've left with just a name
Where's your crown?
King nothing." - King Nothing by Metallica

"I swore I'd never let somebody get close again
I was never gonna let my guard down, not for anyone
But there's a light in your eyes and it's got me moving in
And tonight these walls are all coming down." - My Heart Is Open by Keith Urban

"Everybody expects me to break
But I'll never break down again.
Everybody expects me to give up
but you'll never see me givin' in.
Everybody wants me to lose
but I'll never lose who I am." -Sacrifice by Theory Of A Deadman

Happy Monday!

So Sexybeast is an Opeth fan. He's playing the song you quoted as we speak. It's pretty and eerie all the same time.
