"Set the Fire to the Third Bar" - Snow Patrol


I find the map and draw a straight line
Over rivers, farms, and state lines
The distance from 'A' to where you'd be
It's only finger-lengths Jobby that I see
I touch the place where I'd find your face
My finger in creases of distant dark places

I hang my coat up in the first bar
There is no peace that I've found so far
The laughter penetrates my silence
As drunken men find flaws in science

Their words mostly noises
Ghosts with just voices
Your words in my memory
Are like music to me

I'm miles from where you are,
I lay down on the cold ground
I, I pray that something picks me up
And sets me down in your warm arms

After I have travelled so far
We'd set the fire to the third bar
We'd share each other like an island
Until exhausted, close our eyelids
And dreaming, pick up from
The last place we left off
Your soft skin is weeping
A joy you can't keep in

I'm miles from where you are,
I lay down on the cold ground
And I, I pray that something picks me up
and sets me down in your warm arms






I've been in Puerto Rico for a month, and my boyfriend sent me this song the other day. And it pretty much summed up everything. Cheesy right? I find myself totally okay with it. :D

Four Strong Winds

Four strong winds that blow lowly,
Seven seas that run high,
All those things that don't change, Come what may.
but our good times are all gone,
And I'm bound for moving on.
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way.

Think I'll go out to Alberta,
Weather's good there in the fall.
I got some friends that I can go a'working for,
Still I wish you'd change your mind
If I asked you one more time,
But we've been through that a hundred times or more.

Four strong winds that blow lowly,
Seven seas that run high,
All those things that don't change, Come what may.
but our good times are all gone,
And I'm bound for moving on.
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way.

If I get there before the snow flies,
And if things are looking good,
You could meet me if I send you down the fare.
But by then it would be winter
there ain't much for you to do
And the winds sure can blow cold way out there

Four strong winds that blow lonely,
Seven seas that run high,
All those things that don't change, Come what may.
but our good times are all gone,
And I'm bound for moving on.
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way.

Written by Ian Tyson and sung by many, I like Neil Young's version the best.

^ props for reviving this thread. 'tis a good one.

Quote:
"Half Life" Imogen Heap

I knew that I'd get like this again
That's why I try to keep at bay
Be a hundred percent when I'm with you and then
A perfect heart's length away

The stickler is you've played not one beat wrong
You never promised me anything
Even sat me down, warned me just how they fall
And I knew the odds were I'd never win

And here I am
It's a half life
With you as my quarterback
A daft life

My self-worth measured in text back tempo
It's been 2 days and 8 minutes too slow
There may well be others but I still like to pretend
That I'm the one you really want to grow old with

You've got a schedule to stick to
Got a world to keep sweet
It's so much to everyone all the time
Will you ever slow down? Will I ever come first?
The universe contracts decide

It's a half life
With you as my quarterback
A daft life
It's a half life
With you as my quarterback
A daft life

You know you'll never be lonely
You know you'll always be loved
And maybe you'll never need more than that
Of the sad place that loves, what's to become of us?
Does it even register on your conscience?

Along for one last showdown
From a box in the crowd, air compressed tight to explode
I'm clenching my ticket to the only way out
As you disappear in a puff of smoke

It's a half life
With you as my quarterback
A daft life

Boys Like Girls
Up Against the Wall

It's over
Look out below
And I'm wasted
I still taste it
Yeah it's so hard to let go
So breathe in now
And breathe it out
The forecast
A car crash
It's looking like another...

Breakdown, rebound
This could be my last goodbye
You cross your heart, I hope to die

And I can't deny your eyes
You know I try to read between the lines
I saw a warning sign
And then you threw me up against the wall
Who said that it's better to have loved and lost?
I wish that I had never loved at all


No rewinds
No second times
And I won't break
I won't waste, everything you left behind
So don't follow
Just let it go
The weather's, been better
Don't let it be another...

Breakdown, rebound
This could be my last goodbye
You cross your heart, I hope to die

And I can't deny your eyes
You know I try to read between the lines
I saw a warning sign
And then you threw me up against the wall
Who said that it's better to have loved and lost?
I wish that I had never loved at all


All the nights you spent sitting nowhere out there on your own
All the nights I waited by the phone when you were going in alone
And all your different faces and all your different ways are making everything a mess
And all I'm saying is that all your different places and all the complications led to this

And I can't deny your eyes
You know I try to read between the lines
I saw a warning sign
And then you threw me up against the wall
Who said that it's better to have loved and lost?
I wish that I had never loved

And I can't deny your eyes
You know I try to read between the lines
I saw a warning sign
And then you threw me up against the wall
Who said that it's better to have loved and lost?
I wish that I had never loved at all
(Never loved at all)


*sigh* I love this song. it's so very true.

Skid Row - Wasted Time

You and I together in our lives
Sacred ties would never fray
Then why can�t I let myself tell lies
And watch you die every day

I think back to the times
When dreams were what mattered
Tough talking youth naivete

You said you never let me down
But the horse stampedes and rages
In the name of desperation

Is it all just wasted time
Can you look at yourself
When you think of what
You left behind

Is it all just wasted time
Can you live with yourself
When you think of what
You left behind

Paranoid delusions they haunt you
Where�s my friend I used to know
He�s all alone
He�s buried deep within a carcass
Searching for a soul

Can you feel me inside your heart
As it�s bleeding
Why can�t you belive you
can�t be loved

I hear you scream in agony
And the horse stampedes and rages
In the name of desperation

Is it all just wasted time
Can you look at yourself
When you think of what
You left behind

Is it all just wasted time
Can you live with yourself
When you think of what
You left behind

You said you never let me down
But the horse stampedes and rages
In the name of desperation

Is it all just wasted time
Can you look at yourself
When you think of what
You left behind

Is it all just wasted time
Can you live with yourself
When you think of what
You left behind

The sun will rise again
The earth will turn to sand
Creation�s colors seem to fade to grey
And you�ll see the sickly hands of time
Will write your final rhyme
And end a memory

I never thought you'd let it get
this far, boy

"Time Flies"

I sit tight, don't want to miss the show
I hang on, don't want to miss my prime
'Cause time will fly, upon my baby's back
Time will fly, upon my baby's back

Stay a while, my baby wants me to
Don't you go, my baby begs me so
But tide will dry, upon my baby's back
Tide will dry, upon my baby's back

I get weak
I get weary
I miss sleep
I get moody
I'm in thoughts
I write songs
I'm in love
I walk on

Fingers crossed, my time is coming now
Don't you go, my baby begs me so
Time will fly, upon my baby's back
Time will fly, upon my baby's back

I get weak
I get weary
I miss sleep
I get moody
I'm in thoughts
I write songs
I'm in love
I walk on


the chorus makes me want to cry. i hesitate to say i'm in love, but, if i am, i don't want to be anymore. it's complicated and whatever. but this song is amazing either way...*sigh*

I wish I was your favorite girl,
I wish you thought I was the reason you are in the world.
I wish my smile was your favorite kind of smile
I wish the way that I dressed was your favourite kind of style.

I wish you couldn't figure me out,
But you always wanted know what I was about.
I wish you'd hold my hand when I was upset,
I wish you'd never forget the look on my face when we first met.



I know this is an unrequited love song, but I feel these exact lyrics fit for a father figure of mine. They mean a lot, honestly. Because I know I'm not his favorite, and I wish I were, however selfish that may be.

"Hero" - Skillet

V1
I'm just a step away
I'm a just a breath away
Losin my faith today
JEN: fallin off the edge today

I am just a man
Not superhuman
JEN: I'm not superhuman
Someone save me from the hate

Pre:
It's just another war
Just another family torn
JEN: falling from my faith today
Just a step from the edge
Just another day in the world we live

Chorus:
I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero
JEN: save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero'll save me JEN: just in time

V2
I gotta fight today
To live another day
Speakin my mind today
JEN: my voice will be heard today

I've gotta make a stand
But I am just a man
JEN: I'm not superhuman
My voice will be heard today

Pre:
It's just another war
Just another family torn
JEN: my voice will be heard today
It's just another kill
The countdown begins to destroy ourselves

Bridge:
Who's gonna fight for what's right who's gonna help us survive we're in the fight of our lives
JEN: and we're not ready to die

Who's gonna fight for the weak
Who's gonna make 'em believe
I've got a hero
JEN: I've got a hero

Livin in me

I'm gonna fight for what's right today I'm speaking my mind and if it kills me tonight
JEN: I will be ready to die

A hero's not afraid to give his life
A hero's gonna save me just in time

Jason Mraz - If It Kills Me

How long can I go on like this,
Wishing to kiss you,
Before I rightly explode?
And this double life I lead ain't healthy for me,
In fact it makes me nervous.
If I get caught I could be risking it all.
Well baby, there's a lot I miss in case I'm wrong.



Long story short, basically. This one verse of the song just sums up everything.

Iiiiiiiieeeeeee
Icky thump
Who'da thunk?
Sittin' drunk on a wagon to Mexico.
Ah well,
What a chump
Well my head got a bump
When I hit it on the radio.
Redhead señorita
Looking dead
Came and said
"need a bed?"
En Español.
I said
"gimme a drink a water,
I'm gonna 'sing around the collar'
And I don't need a microphone."
Icky thump
with a lump in my throat
Grabbed my coat
And I was freaking
I was ready to go!
And I swear
Besides the hair
She had one white eye,
One black(nk) stare
Lookin' up
Lyin' there.
On the stand
near her hand
Was a candy cane
Black rum, sugar cane,
Dry ice (and) something strange.

La la, la la la la la la la la la laaa laaa laaa


White Americans, what?
Nothing better to do?
Why don't you kick yourself out?
You're an immigrant too?
who's usin' who?
What should we do?
Well you can't be a pimp
And a prostitute too
Icky thump, handcuffed to a bunk
Robbed blind
Looked around
And there was nobody else
Left alone
I hit myself with a stone
Went home
And learned how to clean up after myself


Icky Thump by the White Stripes

Christmas Must Be Something More by Taylor Swift

You'd see that today holds something special
Something holy, not superficial
So here's to the birthday boy who saved our lives
It's something we all try to ignore
And put a wreath up on your door
So here's something you should know that is for sure
Christmas must be something more

For Christmas. ;)

Fireflies by Owl City

'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance

A foxtrot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread

My favorite par.

Would you believe me if I told the reasons why,
You can't rest and drink yourself to sleep at night?
Not like it matters you can't escape don't even try,
We'll speak what no one knows.

"Oh, I've got to get to sleep."

You lie awake and you hope it's all in your head,
You're counting teeth with your tongue,
"Are they all there?"
There's no relief in the dark from what isn't there,
But you don't feel alone.

We are the ones you should be fearing,
Come in the night and take your teeth away,
Now sew up your mouth and go to sleep because,
We'll be there soon to break,
Your heart and spite your face.

Now they're finally here and you know what they're looking for,
With their empty grins they proceed in taking what you owe,
And you move your lips but the words they just fall to the floor,
So this is how it ends?
Crawl to the mirror and see all that you've become,
A grim reflection of all the things that you have done,
You try to weep but no tears have or will ever come,
So this is who you are?

We are the ones you should be fearing,
Come in the night and take your teeth away,
Now sew up your mouth and go to sleep because,
We'll be there soon to break,
Your heart and spite your face.

All the stars will burn out sometime,
We hang by our own rope,
All the stars will burn out sometime,
We suffer from inward growth.

We are the ones you should be fearing,
Come in the night and take your teeth away,
Now sew up your mouth and go to sleep because,
We'll be there soon to break,
Your heart and spite your face.


- "The Ones" by Aesthetic Perfection

My friend admits that this song reminds her of me...
