Sometimes I feel like a little lost child
Sometimes I feel like the chosen one
Sometimes I wanna shout out 'til everything goes quiet
Sometimes I wonder why I was ever born

And if I stop for a minute
I think about things really I don't wanna know

Keane feat. K'naan - Stop For A Minute

I always loved this lyric

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

The National - About Today

Tonight you just close your eyes
and I just watch you
slip away

How close am I to losing you


Warrior Soundtrack / The National - About today


It's also in the closing part of The Warrior which is an excellent film. Highly recommended.

Someday you might find your hero
Some say you might lose your mind
I keeping my head down now for the summer
I'm outta my mind let me pull the other
I'm gonna take that tiger outside for a ride

What a life!
What a life!

Keep on chasing down that rainbow
You'll never know what you might find
Over the sunset on the horizon
Maybe you dream but it tastes like poison
I'm gonna take that tiger outside for a ride

What a life!
What a life!
What a life!
What a life!

What a life!
What a life!
What a life!
What a life!

Someday you might find your hero
Some say you might lose your mind
Woo Hoo

the last few weeks, I'm really liking this verse, particularly the highlighted bits.


Call all your friends
And tell them you're never coming back
'Cause this is the end
Pretend that you want it, don't react

The damage is done
The police are coming too slow now
And I would have died
I would have loved you all my life

A bleak song for this time of year but I love the lyrics as they get you thinking about those less fortunate.

Glasvegas - Cruel Moon

Slipping in,
Under all conciousness,
Homeless is where the is heart is,
Walk on by and I'll be fine,
This cardboard cover,
Keeps away the gales of the night,

Cos at some points I think this ain't real,
Some nights I say this shouldn't be me,
This christmas even I'm out on the street,
With a lifetime to spend it hurts me this truth,
Under this cruel moon,

Slipping,
Under all conciousness,
Homeless is where the is heart is,
So walk on by and I'll be fine,
This cardboard cover,
Keeps away the gales of the night,

And I know it's late and you're thinking I'm crazy,
I share the same dreams as you, yesterday,
You think this is a world away,
Beware of darkness because this could be you could someday,,
Under this cruel moon,

Glasvegas - Cruel Moon

Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run

The highways jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive

Loved when Chris Moltisanti quoted this in the Sopranos.

Well now I'm no hero
That's understood
All the redemption I can offer girl
Is beneath this dirty hood
With a chance to make it good somehow
Hey what else can we do now ?
Except roll down the window
And let the wind blow
Back your hair
Well the night's busting open
These two lanes will take us anywhere
We got one last chance to make it real


Bruce Springsteen - Thunder Road


Great song.

Great song.


Great song mate - also love Mary Queen Of Arkansas:-

Mary queen of Arkansas, it's not too early for dreamin'
The sky is grown with cloud seed sown and a b***ard's love can be redeeming
Mary, my queen, your soft hulk is reviving
No, you're not too late to desecrate, the servants are just rising

Well, I'm just a lonely acrobat, the live wire is my trade
I've been a shine boy for your acid brat and a wharf rat of your state
Mary, my queen, your blows for freedom are missing
You're not man enough for me to hate or woman enough for kissing

The big top is for dreamers, we can take the circus all the way to the border
And the gallows wait for martyrs whose papers are in order
But I was not born to live to die, and you were not born for queenin'
It's not to late to infiltrate, the servants are just leavin'

Mary queen of Arkansas, your white skin is deceivin'
You wake and wait to lie in bait and you almost got me believin'
But on your bed, Mary, I can see the shadow of a noose
I don't understand how you can hold me so tight and love me so damn loose

But I know a place where we can go, Mary
Where I can get a good job and start out all over again clean
I got contacts deep in Mexico where the servants have been seen

Elvis Costello - Tramp The Dirt Down

I saw a newspaper picture from the political
campaign
A woman was kissing a child, who was obviously
in pain
She spills with compassion, as that young child's
face in her hands she grips
Can you imagine all that greed and avarice
coming down on that child's lips
Well I hope I don't die too soon
I pray the Lord my soul to save
Oh I'll be a good boy, I'm trying so hard to behave
Because there's one thing I know, I'd like to live
long enough to savour
That's when they finally put you in the ground
I'll stand on your grave and tramp the dirt down

When England was the whore of the world
Margeret [sic] was her madam
And the future looked as bright and as clear as
the black tarmacadam
Well I hope that she sleeps well at night, isn't
haunted by every tiny detail
'Cos when she held that lovely face in her hands
all she thought of was betrayal

And now the cynical ones say that it all ends
the same in the long run
Try telling that to the desperate father who just
squeezed the life from his only son
And how it's only voices in your head and
dreams you never dreamt
Try telling him the subtle difference between
justice and contempt
Try telling me she isn't angry with this pitiful
discontent
When they flaunt it in your face as you line up
for punishment
And then expect you to say "Thank you"
straighten up, look proud and pleased
Because you've only got the symptoms, you
haven't got the whole disease
Just like a schoolboy, whose head's like a tin-can
filled up with dreams then poured down
the drain
Try telling that to the boys on both sides, being
blown to bits or beaten and maimed
Who takes all the glory and none of the shame

Well I hope you live long now, I pray the Lord
your soul to keep
I think I'll be going before we fold our arms
and start to weep
I never thought for a moment that human life
could be so cheap
'Cos when they finally put you in the ground
They'll stand there laughing and tramp the dirt down




I'm banking on playing this very loud, for a very long time one day soon. She makes me so f#n angry  :f_steam:

I have too many to put on here, however I don't think many bands write good lyrics.

With your feet on the air
And your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it .... Yeah
Your head'll collapse if there's nothin in it
And you'll ask yourself
Where is my mind
Where is my mind
Where is my mind

"And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be
In the arms of all I'm keeping here with me, me

I don't think Noel Gallagher is a great lyricist, nor do I think he's a bad one, barring some howlers - but I'm a big fan of his, and he is personally the greatest vocal melodist I've ever heard. However, these ones from him are probably the best;

'Strangle my hope and make me pray/to a god I've never seen but who I've betrayed' - Let's All Make Believe

Gas Panic
"What tongueless ghost of sin crept through my curtains?
Sailing on a sea of sweat on a stormy night
I think he don't got a name but I can't be certain
And in me he starts to confide

That my family don't seem so familiar
And my enemies all know my name
And if you hear me tap on your window
Better get on yer knees and pray panic is on the way

My pulse pumps out a beat to the ghost dancer
My eyes are dead and my throat's like a black hole
And if there's a god would he give another chancer
An hour to sing for his soul"

^ I think this one here's got great imagery and sums up the paranoia and delusion of drug abuse better than any other song.
Of course, anything by The Smiths will do, and plenty of Morrissey's work too.

Went to see them at The Cathouse in Glasgow early '94 (I think) before they made big breakthrough. One of worst gigs I've ever been too because they just bickered the whole way through and walked off a couple of times.

I was never a fan - but their tunes were a constant in the pubs and clubs throughout my mid twenties hedonism!

I could post the whole song, but I'll just post my two favourite parts. Really is a beautiful song though.

"...Some guys they just give up living
And start dying little by little piece by piece
Some guys come home from work and wash up
Then go racin' in the street..."

"...She sits on the porch of her daddy's house
But all her pretty dreams are torn
She stares off alone into the night
With the eyes of one who hates for just being born..."

Bruce Springsteen - Racing in the Street.
