i'm with jagh. my alltime fave song i think is "iris" but i think its cause the song itself conveys the emotion of the lyrics

also like the lines

"some dance to remember some dance to forget" in hotel california

"Mistakes don't mean a thing

If you don't regret them"greatest view from silverchair

and

"Half full glasses

Lost in empty houses " world upon your shoulders also silverchair (though i don't really like the song itself)

I love this song ;)

My favorite song lyrics is Seize the Day by Avenged Sevenfold.

Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost

It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over

I see my vision burn, I feel my memories fade with time

But I'm too young to worry

These's streets we traveled on will undergo our same lost past

I found you here, now please just stay for a while

I can move on with you around

I hand you my mortal life, but will it be forever?

I'll do anything for a smile, holding you 'til our time is done

We both know the day will come, but I don't want to leave you

I see my vision burn, I feel my memories fade with time

But I'm too young to worry

(a melody, a memory, or just one PICTURE)

Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost

It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over

Newborn life replacing all of us, changing this fable we live in

No longer needed here so where do we go?

Will you take a journey tonight, follow me past the walls of death?

But girl, what if there is no eternal life?

I see my vision burn, I feel my memories fade with time

But I'm too young to worry

(a melody, a memory, or just one PICTURE)

Seize the day or die regretting the time You lost

It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over

Trials in life, questions of us existing here

Don't wanna die alone without you here

Please tell me what we have is real

(guitar solo)

So what if I never hold you, yeah, or kiss your lips again? Whooooah

So I never want to leave you and the memories OF us to see

I beg don't leave me

Seize the day or die regretting the time You lost

It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over

Trials in life, questions of us existing here

Don't wanna die alone without you here

Please tell me what we have is real

(Silence, you lost me-- no chance for one more day)

(Silence, you lost me-- no chance for one more day)

(I stand here alone

Falling away from you, no chance to get back home) x2

(Silence, you lost me-- no chance for one more day)

(Silence, you lost me-- no chance for one more day)

"The Four Marys" (aka The Queen's Marys, Mary Hamilton, and others)

Last night there were four Marys

Tonight there'll be but three

There was Mary Seaton and Mary Beaton

And Mary Carmichael and me.

Oh, often have I dressed my queen

And put on her braw silk gown

But all the thanks I've got tonight

Is to be hanged in Edinborough Town

Fill often have I dressed my queen

Put gold upon her hair

But I have got for my reward

The gallows to be my share.

Oh little did my mother know

The day she cradled me

The land I was to travel in

The death I was to dee.

Oh, happy, happy is the maid

That's born of beauty free

Oh, it was my rosy dimpled cheeks

That's been the devil to me.

They'll tie a kerchief around my eyes

That I may not see to dee

And they'll never tell my father or mother

But that I'm across the sea.

----

"By the Rising of the Moon"

And come tell me Sean O'Farrell tell me why you hurry so

Husha buachaill hush and listen and his cheeks were all a glow

I bare orders from the captain get you ready quick and soon

For the pikes must be together by the rising of the moon

By the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon

For the pikes must be together by the rising of the moon

And come tell me Sean O'Farrell where the gath'rin is to be

At the old spot by the river quite well known to you and me

One more word for signal token whistle out the marchin' tune

With your pike upon your shoulder by the rising of the moon

By the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon

With your pike upon your shoulder by the rising of the moon

Out from many a mud wall cabin eyes were watching through the night

Many a manly heart was beating for the blessed warning light

Murmurs rang along the valleys to the banshees lonely croon

And a thousand pikes were flashing by the rising of the moon

By the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon

And a thousand pikes were flashing by the rising of the moon

All along that singing river that black mass of men was seen

High above their shining weapons flew their own beloved green

Death to every foe and traitor! Whistle out the marching tune

And hurrah, me boys, for freedom, 'tis the rising of the moon

'Tis the rising of the moon, 'tis the rising of the moon

And hurrah, me boys, for freedom, 'tis the rising of the moon

"Barbara Allen" (Barbry Ellen, etc)

In Scarlet town where I was born

There was a fair maid dwelling

And every youth cried well away

For her name was Barbara Allen

Twas in the merry month of May

The green buds were a swelling

Sweet William on his deathbed lay

For the love of Barbara Allen

He sent a servant unto her

To the place she was dwelling

Saying you must come to his deathbed now

If your name be Barbara Allen

Slowly slowly she got up

Slowly slowly she came nigh him

And the only words to him she said

Young man I think you're dying

As she was walking oer the fields

She heard the death bell knelling

And every stroke it seemed to say

Hardhearted Barbara Allen

Oh mother mother make my bed

Make it long and make it narrow

Sweet William died for me today

I'll die for him tomorrow

They buried her in the old churchyard

They buried him in the choir

And from his grave grew a red red rose

From her grave a green briar

They grew and grew to the steeple top

Till they could grow no higher

And there they twined in a true love's knot

Red rose around green briar

----

"What Wondrous Love is This?"

What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul!

What wondrous love is this, O my soul!

What wondrous love is this

That caused the Lord of bliss

To bear the cruel cross for my soul, for my soul,

To bear the cruel cross for my soul!

When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down,

When I was sinking down, sinking down,

When I was sinking down

Beneath God’s righteous frown,

***** laid aside His crown for my soul for my soul,

***** laid aside His crown for my soul.

To God and to the Lamb I will sing, I will sing;

To God and to the Lamb I will sing;

To God and to the Lamb,

Who is the great I AM,

While millions join the theme, I will sing, I will sing,

While millions join the theme, I will sing.

And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on;

And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on.

And when from death I’m free

I’ll sing His love for me,

And through eternity I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on,

And through eternity I’ll sing on.

Adia I do believe I failed you

Adia I know I've let you down

Don't you know I tried so hard

To love you in my way

[...]

Because there is no one left to finger

There is no one here to blame

There is no one left to talk to, honey

And there ain't no one to buy our innocence

[...]

And show you all the beauty you possess

If you would only let yourself believe that

We are born innocent

before you advertise

all the fame is implied

with no fortune unseen

sell the right's

to your blight

time machine

while i'm dulled by excess(dulled by excess)

and a cynic at best(cynic at the best)

my art imitates crime

paid for by

the allies

so invest

now i'm finding truth is a ruin

nauseous end that nobody is persuing

staring into glassy eyes

mesmerized

there's a vintage thrist returning

but i'm sheltered by my channel-surfing

every famine virtual

"retro vertigo"

a tribute to false memories

with conviction

cheap imitation

is it fashion or disease?

post ironic

remains a mouth to feed

sell the rights

to your blight

and you'll eat

now i'm finding truth is a ruin

nauseous end that nobody is persuing

staring into glassy eyes

mesmerized

see the vintage robot wearied

then awakened by revision theories

every famine virtual

"retro vertigo"

How About this one :D :D :D

Love Story lyrics

Songwriters: Swift, Taylor Alison;

We were both young when I first saw you

I close my eyes

And the flashback starts

I'm standing there

On a balcony in summer air

See the lights

See the party, the ball gowns

I see you make your way through the crowd

And say hello, little did I know

That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles

And my daddy said stay away from Juliet

And I was crying on the staircase

Begging you please don't go, and I said

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone

I'll be waiting all there's left to do is run

You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess

It's a love story baby just say yes

So I sneak out to the garden to see you

We keep quiet 'cause we're dead if they knew

So close your eyes

Escape this town for a little while

'Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter

And my daddy said stay away from Juliet

But you were everything to me

I was begging you please don't go and I said

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone

I'll be waiting all there's left to do is run

You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess

It's a love story baby just say yes

Romeo save me, they try to tell me how to feel

This love is difficult, but it's real

Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess

It's a love story baby just say yes

Oh oh

I got tired of waiting

Wondering if you were ever coming around

My faith in you is fading

When I met you on the outskirts of town, and I said

Romeo save me I've been feeling so alone

I keep waiting for you but you never come

Is this in my head? I don't know what to think

He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring

And said, marry me Juliet

You'll never have to be alone

I love you and that's all I really know

I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress

It's a love story baby just say yes

Oh, oh, oh, oh

'Cause we were both young when I first saw you

"Lady Margarget" (one name among many..."Fair Margaret and Sweet William" being the most common.

Lady Margaret sitting in her high hall door

Combing her long yellow hair

Saw sweet William and his new-made Bride

Riding from the church so near

She throwed down her ivory comb

Throwed back her long yellow hair

Said I'll go down to bid him farewell

And never more go there

It was all lately in the night

When they were fast asleep

Lady Margaret appeared all dressed in white

Standing at their bed feet

How do you like your pillow said she

How do you like your sheet

And how do you like that fair young lady

Lying in your arms asleep

Very well do I like my pillow says he

Very well do I like my sheet

But better do I like that fair young maiden

Standing at my bed feet

Once he kissed her lily white hand

Twice he kissed her cheek

Three times he kissed her cold corpse-y lips

And fell in her arms asleep

Is Lady Magraret in her room?

Or is she in the hall?

No, Lady Margaret's in her cold black coffin

With her pale face to the wall

A lot of my favorite song lyrics I probably couldn't/shouldn't post here, but here's 3 of my favorites. **Sorry in advance for the lengthy post**

(I appoligize if anyone is offended in any way, shape or form by the first one. There was a lot of controversy surrounding this song, but there is a meaning, and a point, though many people are too ignorant to realize, and too quick to judge.)

Band- Slayer

Album - Chr*st Illusions *(can't write Chr*ist on here? And Satan is fine? Hmm...anyway, I mean no offence, it's just the name of the album.)

Song - Jihad (this is the last part of the song, concerning 9/11, from the terrorists point of view.)

Be optimistic, happy and calm

Show no fear or anxiety

Smile at the face of God

And your reward will be eternity

Holy warriors

Your patience will be justified

Everything is for him

You must not comfort the animal before you kill it

Strike as champions at the heart of the nonbelievers

Strike above the neck and at all extremities

For it's a point of no return for almighty God

God will give victory to his faithful servant

When you reach ground zero you will have killed your enemy

The great Satan

* "The great Satan" refers to the United States of America. (Look it up, if you care.)

_________________________________________________________________

Band - Guns N' Roses

Album - Use Your Illusions 1

Song - Dead Horse (this is the beginning of the song, as well as part of the end.)

Sick of this life

Not that you'd care

I'm not the only one with

Whom these feelings I share

Nobody understands, Quite why we're here

We're searchin' for answers

That never appear

But matbe if I looked real hard I'd

I'd see you're tryin' too

To understand this life

That we're all going through

____________________________________________________________________

Band - Guns N' Roses

Album - Use You Illusions 1

Song - Coma (this is a slow part in the middle of the song)

No one's gonna bother me anymore

No one's gonna mess with my head no more

I can't understand what all the fightin's for

But it's so nice here down off the shore

I wish you could see this

'Cause there's nothing to see

It's peaceful here and it's fine with me

Not like the world where I used to live

I never really wanted to live

*Axl Rose is a great songwriter, as well as singer, IMO. If you have never read any of his lyrics, check 'em out sometime.

The vegetarian line totally got me as you can see. :D

"My Clinch Mountain Home"

Far away upon a hill on a sunny mountain side

Many years ago we parted, my own true love and I From the sunny mountain side

Oh she clung to me and trembled, when I told her we must part

And she said don't go my darling I know twill break my heart

When we two are far apart

Carry me back to old Virginia back to my clinch mountain home

Carry me back to old Virginia back to my old mountain home

My mother's old and feeble and my father's getting gray

Carry me back to old Virginia for its there I want to stay

Oh I held her in my arms leaned her head upon my breast

And I told her that I'd wed her when I come back from the west

To my old clinch mountain home

In my hand I hold a picture of the old home far away And the picture of my sweetheart

I'm thinking of today

On the sunny mountain side

"Baby Got Back"

[intro]

Oh, my, god. Becky, look at her butt.

It is so big. *scoff* She looks like,

one of those rap guys' girlfriends.

But, you know, who understands those rap guys? *scoff*

They only talk to her, because,

she looks like a total prostitute, 'kay?

I mean, her butt, is just so big.

I can't believe it's just so round, it's like,

out there, I mean - gross. Look!

She's just so ... black!

[sir Mix-a-Lot]

I like big butts and I can not lie

You other brothers can't deny

That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist

And a round thing in your face

You get sprung, wanna pull out your tough

'Cause you notice that butt was stuffed

Deep in the jeans she's wearing

I'm hooked and I can't stop staring

Oh baby, I wanna get with you

And take your picture

My homeboys tried to warn me

But that butt you got makes me so horny

Ooh, Rump-o'-smooth-skin

You say you wanna get in my Benz?

Well, use me, use me

'Cause you ain't that average groupie

I've seen them dancin'

To hell with romancin'

She's sweat, wet,

Got it goin' like a turbo 'Vette

I'm tired of magazines

Sayin' flat butts are the thing

Take the average black man and ask him that

She gotta pack much back

So, fellas! (Yeah!) Fellas! (Yeah!)

Has your girlfriend got the butt? (Hell yeah!)

Tell 'em to shake it! (Shake it!) Shake it! (Shake it!)

Shake that healthy butt!

Baby got back!

(LA face with Oakland booty)

Baby got back!

[sir Mix-a-Lot]

I like 'em round, and big

And when I'm throwin' a gig

I just can't help myself, I'm actin' like an animal

Now here's my scandal

I wanna get you home

And ugh, double-up, ugh, ugh

I ain't talkin' bout Playboy

'Cause silicone parts are made for toys

I want 'em real thick and juicy

So find that juicy double

Mix-a-Lot's in trouble

Beggin' for a piece of that bubble

So I'm lookin' at rock videos

Knock-kneeded bimbos walkin' like hoes

You can have them bimbos

I'll keep my women like Flo Jo

A word to the thick soul sisters, I wanna get with ya

I won't cuss or hit ya

But I gotta be straight when I say I wanna *******

Till the break of dawn

Baby got it goin' on

A lot of simps won't like this song

'Cause them punks like to hit it and quit it

And I'd rather stay and play

'Cause I'm long, and I'm strong

And I'm down to get the friction on

So, ladies! {Yeah!} Ladies! {Yeah}

If you wanna roll in my Mercedes {Yeah!}

Then turn around! Stick it out!

Even white boys got to shout

Baby got back!

Baby got back!

Yeah, baby ... when it comes to females, Cosmo ain't got nothin'

to do with my selection. 36-24-36? Ha ha, only if she's 5'3".

[sir Mix-a-Lot]

So your girlfriend rolls a Honda, playin' workout tapes by Fonda

But Fonda ain't got a motor in the back of her Honda

My anaconda don't want none

Unless you've got buns, hun

You can do side bends or sit-ups,

But please don't lose that butt

Some brothers wanna play that "hard" role

And tell you that the butt ain't gold

So they toss it and leave it

And I pull up quick to retrieve it

So Cosmo says you're fat

Well I ain't down with that!

'Cause your waist is small and your curves are kickin'

And I'm thinkin' bout stickin'

To the beanpole dames in the magazines:

You ain't it, Miss Thing!

Give me a sister, I can't resist her

Red beans and rice didn't miss her

Some knucklehead tried to dis

'Cause his girls are on my list

He had game but he chose to hit 'em

And I pull up quick to get wit 'em

So ladies, if the butt is round,

And you want a triple X throw down,

Dial 1-900-MIXALOT

And kick them nasty thoughts

Baby got back!

The end of the line,,,,by the Travelling Wiilburys

To me it means the end of life.

Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze

Well it's all right, if you live the life you please

Well it's all right, doing the best you can

Well it's all right, as long as you lend a hand

You can sit around and wait for the phone to ring

Waiting for someone to tell you everything

Sit around and wonder what tomorrow will bring

Maybe a diamond ring

(chorus 2)

Well it's all right, even if they say you're wrong

Well it's all right, sometimes you gotta be strong

Well it's all right, as long as you got somewhere to lay

Well it's all right, everyday is judgement day

Maybe somewhere down the road aways

Youll think of me, and wonder where I am these days

Maybe somewhere down the road when somebody plays

Purple haze

(chorus 3)

Well it's all right, even when push comes to shove

Well it's all right, if you got someone to love

Well it's all right, everythingll work out fine

Well it's all right, were going to the end of the line

Don't have to be ashamed of the car I drive

Im just glad to be here, happy to be alive

It don't matter if you're by my side

Im satisfied

(chorus 4)

Well it's all right, even if you're old and grey

Well it's all right, you still got something to say

Well it's all right, remember to live and let live

Well it's all right, the best you can do is forgive

(chorus 5)

Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze

Well it's all right, if you live the life you please

Well it's all right, even if the sun don't shine

Well it's all right, were going to the end of the line

"The Dust Blows Forward and the Dust Blows Back" - The Captain

There's ole Gray with 'er dove-winged hat

Threre's ole Green with her sewing machine

Where's the bobbin at?

Tote'n old grain in uh printed sack

The dust blows forward 'n dust blows back

And the wind blows black thru the sky

And the smokestack blows up in suns eye

What am I gonna die?

Uh white flake riverboat just flew by

Bubbles popped big

"Frownland" - Captain Beeftheart

My smile is stuck

I cannot go back to your Frownland

My spirit's made up of the ocean

And the sky 'n' the sun 'n' the moon

'n' all my eyes can see

I cannot go back to your land of gloom

Where black jagged shadows

Remind me of the coming of your doom

I want my own land

Take my hand and come with me

It's not too late for you

It's not too late for me

To find my homeland

Where a man can stand by another man

Without an ego flying

With no man lying

'n' no one dying by an earthly hand

Let the devils burn and the beggar learn

'n' the little girls that live in those old worlds

Take my kind hand

My smile is stuck

I cannot go back to your Frownland

I cannot go back to your Frownland

"Sat in Your Lap" - Kate Bush

I see the people working,

And see it working for them.

And so I want to join in,

But then I find it hurts me.

Some say that knowledge is something sat in your lap.

Some say that knowledge is something that you never have.

I see the people happy,

So can it happen for me?

'Cause when I am unhappy,

There's nothing that can move me.

Some say that knowledge is something that you never have.

Some say that knowledge is something sat in your lap.

Some say that heaven is hell.

Some say that hell is heaven.

I must admit, just when I think I'm king,

(I just begin.)

Just when I think I'm king, I must admit,

(I just begin.)

Just when I think I'm king,

(I just begin.)

I've been doing it for years.

My goal is moving near.

It says, "Look! I'm over here."

Then it up and disappears.

Some say that knowledge is something sat in your lap.

Some say that knowledge is ho-ho-ho-ho.

I want to be a lawyer.

I want to be a scholar.

But I really can't be bothered.

Ooh, just gimme it quick, gimme it, gimme gimme gimme gimme!

Some say that knowledge is ho ho ho.

Some say that knowledge is ho ho ho.

Some say that heaven is hell.

Some say that hell is heaven.

I must admit, just when I think I'm king,

(I just begin.)

Just when I think I'm king, I must admit,

(I just begin.)

Just when I think everything's going great,

(I just begin,)

Hey, I get the break,

Hey, I'm gonna take it all--

(I just begin.)

When I'm king--

(-- just begin.)

In my dome of ivory,

A home of activity,

I want the answers quickly,

But I don't have no energy.

I hold a cup of wisdom,

But there is nothing within.

My cup, she never overfloweth,

And 'tis I that moan- and groaneth.

Some grey and white matter,

"Give me the karma, mama!"

I'm coming up the ladder,

"A jet to Mecca,"

I'm coming up the ladder,

"Tibet or Jeddah,

Up the ladder...

"To Salisbury,

A monastery,

The longest journey,

Across the desert,

Across the weather,

Across the elements,

Across the water!"
