      Say what you want, but this is simple genius.
      I don't know, mate. I think sometimes lyrics are just too deep and personal to the writer that it's hard for the observer to fully appreciate them. Most of that went over my head.

      Honesty Is No Excuse - Thin Lizzy Philip Lynott

      Up till now I used to pass my time
      Drinking beer so slowly, sometimes wine
      No God, air, water or sunshine
      And honesty was my only excuse
      I took your love and I used it

      Up till now my youthful stage
      A useless rage, a torn out page, a worn out gauge
      A dirty shade, a big charade, a has been made
      And honesty was my only excuse
      I took your love and I used it

      I never, I never, I never

      Up till now my love life
      A few sweet kisses, a little missus, a fork and knife
      a happy home, a hand to hold, a land to roam
      And honesty was my only excuse
      I took my life in my own hands and I abused it

      Up till now I used to tap dance
      Take a girl by the hand saying I need your , I need your romance
      Oh I had so many chances
      And honesty was my only excuse
      I took your love and abused it

      Up till now the path of life was fair enough
      Enough was fair, all was right
      And now I know, I see the light
      And honesty was my only excuse

      If you're so funny
      Then why are you on your own tonight?
      And if you're so clever
      Then why are you on your own tonight?
      If you're so very entertaining
      Then why are you on your own tonight?
      If you're so very good looking
      Why do you sleep alone tonight?
      I know because tonight is just like any other night
      That's why you're on your own tonight
      With your triumphs and your charms
      While they are in each other's arms

      I Know It's Over - The Smiths
        :gt-happyup:

      so divided ( So Divided)

      Hear the noise back in town
      Let's gather everyone
      And go see what they're
      up to now
      Driving in, Driving out
      From hotel to the bar
      All our friends are here
      But somehow we seem so divided

      We're the voice crying out
      Screaming every song
      Not that anyone understands
      Diving in, Diving out
      the terrified crowd
      All our bands are here
      But somehow they seem so divided
      If you want to see where the fight is
      Look around...

      I hear the sound of a voice inside my head
      Saying things that I can't understand
      Telling me a life may soon be dead I wonder from what hand
      The words they say are too hard to conceive
      I try my best to never listen
      Can't you see I'm struggling to conceal
      These thoughts from everyone?
      It's not that I don't care
      And I don't want to hurt you
      It's just the worst I fear is coming out
      Coming out of me

      You know I've heard you say that I'm not real
      I know you think that I don't understand
      Truth is I'm trying hard to deal
      this is not what I had planned
      It's not that I don't care
      It's not that I don't love you
      It's just that I am here
      To put you out of your misery

      All of you lovers who think you're in love
      I'll put you out of your misery
      All of your children born under the sky
      I'll put you out of your misery
      venom that you can't conceive
      Is pouring out of the depths of me
      You think you're free, you've been deceived
      I'll put you out of your misery
      You think the future is warm and bright
      But it is death and I am your destiny
      You think you'll be protected by God
      I'll put you out of your misery
      I was put down to bring you down and put you out.

      (Hide the scars to fade away the shake )
      Why'd you leave the keys up on the table?

      Father into your hands, why have you forsaken me?
      In your eyes, forsaken me
      In your thoughts, forsaken me
      In your heart, forsaken me

      Oh, trust in my, self-righteous suicide

      Every time I go out on the piss round the local rock pubs and clubs, I always seem to end up with my arms up and head back singing the chorus..

      I agree that this thread should be full of one or two lines from a song - not the full song.

      Anyhow, I'll try to get down as many as mine as I can think of now:


      The Smiths - This Charming Man
      Punctured bicycle, on a hillside desolate
      Will nature make a man of me yet?


      (Got to be a pretty talented lyricist to start a song with "Punctured bicycle" and still make the lyrics and music sound great!)

      Kaiser Chiefs - Ruby
      Let it never be said, that romance is dead
      'cos there's so little else occupying my head


      (Even though i hardly rate the Kaiser Chiefs, that is stunningly poetic)

      Arctic Monkeys - The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala
      And did you ever get the feeling, that these are things she's said before?
      Her steady hands may well have done, the devil's pedicure


      Coldplay - Yellow
      Your skin, oh yeah your skin and bone
      turn in, to something beautiful


      Coldplay - Viva La Vida
      I used to rule the world, seas would rise when I gave the word
      Now in the morning I sleep alone, sweep the streets I used to roam


      Coldplay - Amsterdam
      Stood on the edge, tied to a noose
      But you came along and you cut me loose


      Coldplay - The Scientist
      Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
      You don't know how lovely you are


      Dire Straits - Tunnel of Love
      And the big wheel keep on turning, neon burning, up above
      And I'm just high on this world, come on and take a low ride with me girl, on the tunnel of love


      Foo Fighters - The Pretender
      What if I say I'm not like the others? What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays, you're the pretender
      What if I say that I'll never surrender?


      John Lennon - Imagine
      Hard to choose a few lyrics from this, lyrically it's possibly the best song of all time

      Johnny Cash - When the man comes around
      There's a man going round taking names, and he decides who to free and who to blame
      Everybody won't be treated all the same, there will be a golden ladder reaching down, when the man comes around


      The Killers - Mr Brightside
      It started out with a kiss, how did it end up like this
      It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss


      The Killers - All these things I've done
      I got soul but I'm not a soldier

      Nirvana - Smells like teen spirit
      I found it hard, it's hard to find, oh well whatever, Nevermind

      Nirvana - Heart Shaped Box
      Broken hymen of your highness I'm left black
      Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back


      Oasis - Live Forever
      Maybe I just wana fly, wana live but don't wana die
      Maybe I just wana breath, maybe I just don't believe
      Maybe you're the same as me, we see things I'll never see
      You and I are gona live forever


      Oasis - Rock 'n' Roll Star
      I live my life for the stars that shine, people say it's just a waste of time

      Radiohead - No Surprises
      A heart that's full up like a landfill, a job that slowly kills you
      Bruises that won't heal


      The Smiths - There is a light that never goes out
      And if a double decker bus, crashes into us,
      To die by your side, is such a heavenly way to die

      Laughing - David Crosby

      And I thought I'd seen someone
      Who seemed at last
      To know the truth

      I was mistaken
      Only a child laughing
      In the sun

      Ah, ah, ah ...
      In the sun

      ---------------------------------------------
      Bob Dylan - Simple twist of fate
      People tell me it's a sin
      To know and feel too much within
      I still believe she was my twin but I lost the ring
      She was born in spring but I was born too late
      Blame it on a simple twist of fate.

      --------------------------------------------------

      The Beatles  - Strawberry fields forever

      Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.
      It's getting hard to be someone but it all works out.
      It doesn't matter much to me.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      With all due respect mate, who died and made you God?.

      Take Chop Suey as an example. System Of A Down are Armenian Americans. The whole song tells a story, it's about man's suffering, particularly the Armenian genocide that occured in 1915 at the hands of the Turks and which was covered up. It's also about the suffering of Jesus and how he was betrayed and his sacrifice for the human race. Most of their songs are about religion and the Armenian genocide, they are highly intelligent and powerful lyrics. They relate to how people hide what is going on inside themselves by enhancing their external persona. Based on fact and not fiction.

      The whole song tells a story so it would be unfair to quote a couple of lines as the whole lyrical content carries great power and meaning. Music is a very powerful media, in fact i'd say it is the most powerful media there is, they use this media as a platform to make people aware of what happened to their descendants, nearly 100 years on. Respect to them for that.

      I agree hardcore and I think I've posted a couple of full songs as you only get the context of the lyric in the full song or the full song is one of your favourite lyrics.

      My first post was a full song, The Smiths Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want, as it is the full song which is one of my favourite lyrics not just one part of it.

      First of all mate, I never said "f**k off with all these full songs, I'm god of this thread and I say it must all be 2 or 3 lines from a song"
      I'm actually agreeing with what a few people have already said in this thread if you read back through the pages. Why don't you have a go at them aswell for having the same opinion as me? Just my opinion, if I'm allowed to give it without being accused of acting god-like.

      Secondly, I wasn't pointing a finger at anyone in particular. I swear I've skimmed through all the pages without looking at and members names who posted full songs.

      And you don't have to preach to me about the lyrics of that song. I never said that all of the lyrics from a song aren't important. I've never even heard that song to have that opinion about it.

      I understand and apologise if I sounded as if I was having a go at any people. Just agreeing with anyone else who's pointed out that they prefer to see a few lines of lyrics too. I don't think there was any need in your opening comment of that post that I've highlighted in bold.

      Mate, when I started the thread, that is actually what I mean, for people to pot tjeir favourite 3/4 lines from a particular song. Just any lyric that had any significance to any feeling they had at the time. I didn't mind wharsoever peopple posting full song lyrics at all as obviously people coulde reate to the lyrics of a song fully.

      To be honest, I think any lyrics you feel attribute to you personally should be posted here, be it 3 lines or 30 lines. As long  as they mean something to you.

      Listen lads, we obviously have different viewpoints on this topic and that is fair enough. I find that a complete song means something to me as opposed to a few lines of lyrics from any particular song. I can honestly say that i couldn't exactly pinpoint a single verse from any song that i like because the songs i like tell a story through a multitude of verses, not just one.

      I couldn't really quote a verse from Chop Suey as it would mean nothing without the other verses and chorus sections. It would be like buying a book and only reading one chapter to me.

      First of all mate, I never said "f**k off with all these full songs, I'm god of this thread and I say it must all be 2 or 3 lines from a song"

      Oh and yes sometimes the whole song is needed for context.

      Like this one, 'Unstable' by Life of Agony

      Now I know the lyrics aren't exactly happy-go-lucky but they're about him sitting in a hospital waiting room as his wife/partner is with a consultant. I've always liked the part, It's hard to be the one who's strong, Who's always got a shoulder to cry on, Who's got a shoulder for me?

      By posting the lyrics I'm probably killing the song for you but if you listen to it without reading ahead, as I once did, the last line is screamed out and it's a real choker.

      This cancer is killing me
      As much as it's killing you
      If it takes you away from me
      I don't know what I would do
      Just try for some peace of mind
      But it's so hard to find
      It's so hard to just sit and wait
      And wait some more
      Staring at the door
      Skim through the magazines
      Pretend like everything's gonna be alright
      Although you know it won't be
      Unstable
      It's hard to be the one who's strong
      Who's always got a shoulder to cry on
      Who's got a shoulder for me?
      When I'm about to breakdown
      You're never around
      But maybe it's better that way
      You've got enough to worry about
      You've got your hands full don't you
      Don't you see?
      This cancer is killing me
      Like it's killing you
      Mentally
      Unstable
      And all I really want to know is if she's going to be alright

      'cause she's been in there a long, long time
      And I've been out here losing my mind
      You're scared
      You're frightened
      You're so afraid of what he may say
      But you try and be brave
      For me sitting impatiently
      In the lobby of emergency
      You burst on through that door with this look on your face
      I've never seen before
      You explode into endless tears
      Whisper in my ear
      Baby
      Baby
      I've only got one more year
      Unstable

      Agreed Rep. Very powerful lyrics they are and you have to hear them all to get the full story. Having lost relatives and friends to cancer i can really relate to that song myself. Reading them is slightly different to listening to them in a song with music, i will seek this song out so i can listen to it properly.

      Like you said, even though those few lines you quoted had meaning, nobody can understand the complete meaning of those words unless they are accompanied by the rest of the lyrics, which tell the full harrowing story. And of course, the instruments. Music is so powerful.

      Yeah I'm sure a lot of people could relate to the lyrics. It's the way they both try to be strong for each other. The words are ones that he wants to say to her, to tell her how much it's hurting him but he would never come out and say it for her sake, so he just pretends everything's ok and tries to be that shoulder for her. At the same time I think she's trying to hold it together and the whole charade falls to pieces at the end of the song when she breaks down an tells him she's only got one more year. Makes me wonder how he reacts beyond those lyrics and whether he can stay strong or break down with her.

      If you cant see a difference in those 2 quotes mate, I can't help you.

      There's a clear difference between me saying that I think it should be 2 or 3 lines etc, or me saying it must be like that.

      Should and must obviously mean the same thing to you? I swear you're looking for an argument here.

      I can honestly say that i couldn't exactly pinpoint a single verse from any song that i like because the songs i like tell a story through a multitude of verses, not just one.

      I couldn't really quote a verse from Chop Suey as it would mean nothing without the other verses and chorus sections. It would be like buying a book and only reading one chapter to me.

      I understand that you prefer lyrics that tell a full story, but that doesn't mean that every song is like that. I agree that for some songs, like the one you mention there, that is the case, but there are probably more songs consisting of random lyrics that don't tell a story, than there are songs that do. All the lyrics I've posted a few posts up are like that. The songs they come from are good songs, but they they are the standout lyrics from the song, and make sense without seeing the other lyrics.

      for when I get in one of my depressed-shut-everyone-out-of-my-life moods.

      RHCP - Under The Bridge

      Sometimes I feel like I don't have a partner
      Sometimes I feel like my only friend

      It's hard to believe that there's nobody out there
      It's hard to believe that I'm all alone
      ^ ^ ^ Ah, nothing like a song about Heroin addiction when your feeling down.  ;D

      Ladies and gentlemen this beautiful offering:
      EverLast
      What It's Like lyrics

      We've all seen the man at the liquor store beggin' for your change
      The hair on his face is dirty, dreadlocked and full of mange
      He ask the man for what he could spare with shame in his eyes
      Get a job you f***in' slob's all he replied

      [CHORUS]
      God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in his shoes
      'Cause then you really might know what it's like to sing the blues
      Then you really might know what it's like [x4]

      Mary got pregnant from a kid named Tom who said he was in love
      He said don't worry about a thing baby doll I'm the man you've been dreamin' of
      But three months later he said he won't date her or return her call
      And she sweared god damn if I find that man I'm cuttin' off his balls
      And then she heads for the clinic and she gets some static walkin' through the doors
      They call her a killer, and they call her a sinner, and they call her a whore

      [CHORUS]
      God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in her shoes
      'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to choose
      Then you really might know what it's like [x4]
      I've seen a rich man beg
      I've seen a good man sin
      I've seen a tough man cry
      I've seen a loser win
      And a sad man grin
      I heard an honest man lie
      I've seen the good side of bad
      And the down side of up
      And everything between
      I licked the silver spoon
      Drank from the golden cup
      Smoked the finest green
      I stroked the baddest dimes at least a couple of times
      Before I broke their heart
      You know where it ends
      Yo, it usually depends on where you start

      I knew this kid named Max
      He used to get fat stacks out on the corner with drugs
      He liked to hang out late at night
      Liked to get sh*t faced
      And keep pace with thugs
      Until late one night there was a big gun fight
      Max lost his head
      He pulled out his chrome .45
      Talked some sh*t
      And wound up dead
      Now his wife and his kids are caught in the midst of all of his pain
      You know it crumbles that way
      At least that's what they say when you play the game

      [CHORUS]
      God forbid you ever had to wake up to hear the news
      'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to lose
      Then you really might know what it's like [x3]
      To have to lose...

      HCS, I haven't heard this song in ages, thanks for posting it, brings up some great memories from the first time I heard this tune, a 16-17 year old me, on a gig with my friend, with these two college guys, oh great times, would go back to them without even thinking. Was looking for a CD of System of a down because of this particular song like crazy, till finally this friend of mine borrowed me his, couldn't stop listening to the song.

      On topic,

      Will those feet in modern times
      Walk on soles made in China?
      Will those feet in modern times
      See the bright prosaic malls?
      Will those feet in modern times
      Forgive me all my sins

      My favourite song from The Verve Velvet Morning.

      And now I'm trying to tell you
      About my life
      And my tongue is twisted
      And more dead than alive
      And my feelings
      They've always been betrayed
      And I was born a little damaged man
      And look what they made

      I said, don't you find
      That it's lonely
      The corridor
      You walk there alone
      And life is a game
      You've tried
      And life is a game
      You're tired

      New Drink for the Old Drunk (aka the theme song for my 40th birthday  :f_tongueincheek: )

      Would you try--
      could you buy a new drink for the old drunk
      It's no crime to resign misery with a bottle
      You walked into town without making a sound
      And you slipped and you slammed your face into the crowd
      As you tried to forget all the words that were said
      To deny all the things that you keep in your head

      When you came you were new but today you're much older
      You were spent so you went to get used in the corner
      Where they kicked you around like a rodeo clown
      And it echoed through town they were beating you down
      And as they spread the word that you liked how it hurt
      All at once you were cause for a pitiful cure

      Hours pass by half forgotten
      Night turns black cause it's rotten
      And we slide right to the bottom
      Our tongues made out of cotton

      Eyes seal shut in a slumber
      Til we hear someone mumble
      Could you spare from the tumbler
      A new drink for the old drunk

      Now you waste all your days in the dark in the corner
      Without light without grace where you wait for the slaughter
      Where they spit in your face as the hours grow late
      And they laugh as they lie and then seal up your fate
      And you cringe as you binge to forget how you hate
      All the doom in this pitiful room you create

      Hours pass by half forgotten
      Night turns black cause it's rotten
      And we slide right to the bottom
      Our tongues made out of cotton
      Eyes seal shut in a slumber
      Til we hear someone mumble
      Could you spare from the tumbler
      A new drink for the old drunk

      One of my favourite songs and while it's not very upbeat I really like this lyric

      James Sit Down

      Now I'm relieved to hear
      That you've been to some far out places
      It's hard to carry on
      When you feel all alone
      Now I've swung back down again
      It's worse than it was before
      If I hadn't seen such riches
      I could live with being poor

      James - Sit Down (With Lyrics)

      Brilliant song.
