^^ There is always a song that the voice speak more to your heart than the music, so I would like to you, what's your favorite lyrics of the moment but also before. (Don't hesitate to post twice). This is mine

GUANO APES - Quietly
"Quietly
explodes your love
your insecurity is so soft to me
I can’t let you breathe in
we are falling into us
I see you dying in my eyes

Just let it all go
you are left
and so am I
just let it all go
we leave all inside

Quietly
we arrive
my insecurity is so soft to you
you can`t let me breathe in
we are falling into deep
I`m dying in your open mouth"

Not really my kind of choice usually but this seemed different.

Every Heart (Inuyasha ending 4)

If there were many tears falling down,
Every heart would become gentle.
If everybody expresses what they think,
Every heart can be satisfied.

I was frightened by the neverending night,
So I prayed to the distant stars.

In endlessly repeating time,
We were searching for love,
Because we wanted to become stronger.
We look up to the faraway sky.

The two of us, smiling, meet here,
Every heart has a habit of receiving its dreams.
Sadness has no effect on us,
Every heart gains happiness when it flies.

Someday our souls will unite,
We will give peaceful approval.

In endlessly repeating time,
We know why we are living.
We go through the nighttime laughing,
Both of us are mourning, yet we walk on.

Memories of everything has settled,
This is a warm place to be.
The stars separate us from the future,
We are always so brilliant,
So shine.

In endlessly repeating time,
We were searching for love,
Because we wanted to become stronger.
We look up to the faraway sky.

In endlessly repeating time,
We know why we are living.
We go through the nighttime laughing,
Both of us are mourning, yet we walk on.

I only was used to the Japanese version until I went looking for the english lyrics but I am not complaining at the English version.

Easy for me. I already know the 2 lyrics that are for me:

Libertines - Tell the King

And you know how I feel out of place
Until I'm levered off my face
And I can't work out what your on about

Dizzee Racal Do It

Sleep tight everything will be alright.
By the end of the will be the day, just pray dat you see it.
Strong u got to be it if you wanna get through it.
Stretch your mind to the limit you can DO IT.

:o wow, you wrote them all from memory I have to copy and pass them from website but talking about The Libertines, this is my favourite song of them :

The Ideal girl in London from France
Came over then left me
She left me entranced
Now I have to get by once again on my own
Nothing but memories

So I remember your eyes that unique shade of brown
While these blue eyes of mine they stay closed
I kissed you goodbye
On the N109 I choked as I watched the bus go

Choking and smoking to your angelic soul
choking and smoking myself into a hole
Where the only way out is to sleep and to dream
And to cry out your name.

Leady FF ^^
02-03-09, 04:30 PM
And to cry out ur name...christineeeee.....

Another from me:

If you pipe all summer long / Then get forgiven in a song / Well that's the touch, my lad

from the Libertines / Likely Lads - sung that enough times with best friend in the car lol.

Lene Marlin is one of the best singer for me and recently when I listened to that song it makes me cry, maybe because it reminds me someone I lost.

"A Place Nearby"

I entered the room
Sat by your bed all through the night
I watched your daily fight
I hardly knew
The pain was almost more than I could bear
And still I hear
Your last words to me.

Heaven is a place nearby
So I won't be so far away.
And if you try and look for me
Maybe you'll find me someday.
Heaven is a place nearby
So there's no need to say goodbye
I wanna ask you not to cry
I'll always be by your side.
You just faded away
You spread your wings you had flown
Away to something unknown
Wish I could bring you back.
You're always on my mind
About to tear myself apart.
You have your special place in my heart.

Always heaven is a place nearby
So I won't be so far away.
And if you try and look for me
Maybe you'll find me someday.
Heaven is a place nearby
So there's no need to say goodbye
I wanna ask you not to cry
I'll always be by your side.

And even when I go to sleep
I still can hear your voice
And those words
I never will forget

One song that really does have a beautiful set of lyrics as well as the song itself is "The Sound of White" by Missy Higgins :)

Like a freeze-dried rose, you will never be,
What you were, what you were to me in memory.
But if I listen to the dark,
You'll embrace me like a star,
Envelope me, envelope me...
If things get real for me down here,
Promise to take me to before you went away -
If only for a day.
If things get real for me down here,
Promise to take me back to the tune
We played before you went away.

And if I listen to, the sound of white,
Sometimes I hear your smile, and breathe your light.
Yeah if I listen to, the sound of white ..
You're my mystery. One mystery. My mystery. One mystery.

My silence solidifies,
Until that hollow void erases you,
Erases you so I can't feel at all.
But if I never feel again, at least that nothingness
Will end the painful dream, of you and me...
If things get real for me down here, promise to take me to
Before you went away, if only for a day.
If things get real for me down here, promise to take me back to
The tune we played before you went away.

And if I listen to, the sound of white
Sometimes I hear your smile, and breathe your light.
Yeah if I listen to, the sound of white
Sometimes I hear your smile, and breathe your light.
And if I listen to, the sound of white.

I knelt before some strangers face,
I'd never have the courage or belief to trust this place,
But I dropped my head, 'cos it felt like lead,
And I'm sure I felt your fingers through my hair...

And if I listen to, the sound of white sometimes
I hear your smile, and breathe your light.
Yeah if I listen to, the sound of white.
The sound of white,
The sound of white,
The sound of white.

Although without the music, and just the brilliant piano work that accompanies the song, your only getting half the picture. A lot of songs by Pete Murray have some really great Lyrics, like "So Beautiful" "Summer at Eureka" "Better Days" and "Opportunity" just to name a few ^^

The wilted flowers that I gave
Were not as nice as your bouquet
All the lyrics that I wrote
Not as smart as the words you spoke
The starlight above my hometown
Ain't as bright as the star I've found
Every drawing that I drew
Was never ever as cute as you

Serious as a heart attack
I'm looking in my almanac
I gotta find out all the things
And find out where she got her wings
Shimmy shimmy quarter turn
I feel like I will never learn
How can I check lost and found
When I'm too busy getting down

Gotta get it back to
A backup plan to find you
Start acceleration
Take it back to square one

I swear that I'm not kidding
We're just looking to fit in
With all the other answers
Questions never confirmed
States that keep us far apart
Track the beating of my heart
Mark the places in my book
With photographs we never took
I swear that I'm not kidding
The night time is so pretty
With all the stars above your eyes
I'm sneaking out and making ties
States that keep us far apart
Track the beating with a chart
Mark the rhythms that I shook
Everytime I caught you look

Gotta get it back to
A backup plan to find you
Start acceleration
Take it back to square one

hellogoodbye! not my absolute favourite lyrics but i had this song stuck in my head all day so yeah...

This is a Live performance of "The Sound of White" by Missy Higgins, back in 2005, when she performed at the Arias(Aussie Music awards :p )

The song is cool, the singer face reminds me a lot Dido, I don't know why

Another lyrics
Artist : Olivia Lufkin (for me one of the best singer in the world)
Title : Tell me (Because of part of the song remind me my boyfriend)

Keep me happy, out of line
Keep me sweet and satisfied
Come with me darling
Don't say no
How bout we just take it slow

Sexy baby you sure know
How to make my eyes glow
Come with me sugar
Do not fret
I have to tell you a secret

Staring into the sky
The nature hums music of you

Tell me, what do you feel?
Cause I know I'm feeling something
Emerging magical sores in me
Tell me, what do you feel?
Maybe this is just a moment
But we're penetrating time

Your waves are crashing into me
Exciting me and hurting me
I'm feeling sick
Oh what am I to do?
I think your sweet kiss will do

Take me over completely
I'll give you whatever you need

Tell me, what do you feel?
Cause I know I'm feeling something
My senses are super sensitive
Tell me, what do you feel?
What I would do to be your girl
I'm aching without you

Another song of hers that is really good is "They Werent There" :)

You breathed infinity into my world
And time was lost up in a cloud and in a whirl.
We dug a hole in the cool grey earth and lay there for the night.
Then you said, "wait for me we'll fly the wind,
We'll grow old and you'll be stronger without him" but oh,
Now my world is at your feet. I was lost and I was found,
But I was alive and now I've drowned.
So now I will be waiting for the world to hear my song
So they can tell me I was wrong...

But they weren't there beneath your stare,
And they weren't stripped 'till they were bare of
Any bindings from the world outside that room.
And they weren't taken by the hand
And led through fields of naked land
Where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away...
So I couldn't say "no".

You sighed and I was lost in you, weeks could've past for all I knew.
You were there blanket of the over-world and so I couldn't say,
I wouldn't say "no". But they all said, "you're too young to even know,
Just don't let it grow and you'll be stronger without him"
But oh, now, my world is at your feet. I was lost and I was found,
But I was alive and now I've drowned.
So now I will be waiting for the world to hear my song
So they can tell me I was wrong...

But they weren't there beneath your stare,
And they weren't stripped 'till they were bare
Of any bindings from the world outside that room.
And they weren't taken by the hand and led through fields
Of naked land where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away...

But they weren't there beneath your stare,
And they weren't stripped 'till they were bare
Of any bindings from the world outside that room.
And they weren't taken by the hand and led through fields
Of naked land where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away...
So I couldn't say "no".

I'm hurting you again
Too lonely to pretend
Like everything is new
I promise you to
Blow it all away

In your world
No one is crying alone
In your world
No one is dying alone

Too broken to belong
too weak to sing along
I'll comfort you my friend
Helping you to
Blow it all away

In your world
No one is crying alone
In your world
No one is dying alone

hauntingly beautiful

Is anyone actually going to state why they like the lyrics they've printed?

God-Like Phoenix
04-03-09, 10:10 AM
Ok then...I will :p

The main reason why I like the lyrics of Missy Higgins' songs is because they tell a story, and are full of emotion. "The Sound of White" has lyrics that speak straight from the heart, and conveys her message so brilliantly :) Right now im watching tv and doing homework, so I cant think about these things all that well right now :p

Gischie
04-03-09, 10:44 AM
it's hard to explain why you like jam and not marmite so to explain why you like a lyrics, it's 10 times harder...
But to be honest with you I think lyrics I love, are those which speak to my heart or reminds me some moments of my life, like a hard time, a good time...

Well I do a lot of lyrics analysis any picked up a lot of reasons why I like the lyrics I do so I kinda assumed that everyone worked the same way really and liked lyrics due to something like their meanings or underlined meanings? Rhyming scheme? Something down those lines.

One of my favourite lyrics is Burnt Ice by Heavy Metal band Megadeth.
Main reason why I like this song so much is because it tells the truth about addictions, first comes curiosity, then if you get hooked and can't get off or don't want to you'll find important things slipping away when it turns out your actually the one throwing them away. I think the lead Dave Mustaine wrote it out of experience, there's no chorus to this song by the way, just three short verses one of which; the last I haven't bothered including because it's not relevant.
Just to mention the guitar solo between the second and third verse is brilliant but obviously not included in the lyrics.

"He said he'd try just a little bit,
He didn't want to end up like them,
And now he blames the voices of a toothless wonder,
Pounding on the door to make the next score.
Anything for a hit, any sin to pay for it,
For that next bowl, he'd sell his soul.
Spiral to destruction, it's too late to break the spell,
He wants the ride to stop on the freight train straight to hell,
Without the truth he'll never find in a dungeon of his lies,
His cause of death... high speed on burnt ice."

"Always looking at the ground, a broken, beaten man,
Memories of his family are calling after him,
He can hardly think, hardly walk,
Phone keeps ringing, he can't talk,
With just one hit the pain would go away,
But he's dead if he does."

PS: Sorry for double posting, I forgot I had just posed.

ther once was a hurricane
that roamed over the land
destroying everything in its way
there was nothing left, ohhh

this hurricane was so mighty
this hurricane was deemed unstopable
this hurricane destroyed all that we loved

this is, this is it
this is, this is the end
this is the end of us
this is it

the hurricane wanted nothing more
than to ruin our dreams and family
will anyone save from what is to come
will anyone step up for us

Its my life-Bon Jovi!!

This ain't a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow's getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain't even lucky
Got to make your own breaks

It's my life
And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life

Better stand tall when they're calling you out
Don't bend, don't break, baby, don't back down

It's my life
And it's now or never
'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive

It's my life
And it's now or never
'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life

You don't know

You don't know you're beautiful

Megadeth - Blackmail the Universe

''Betrayal, I peel away the days
Medals are useless, Uncle Sam's forgotten me
I'm not important, no one will ever come
I'll never be found, God get me out of this hell''

Metallica - One

''Darkness imprisoning me
All that I see
Absolute horror
I cannot live
I cannot die
Trapped in myself
Body my holding cell

Landmine has taken my sight
Taken my speech
Taken my hearing
Taken my arms
Taken my legs
Taken my soul
Left me with life in hell''

Iron Maiden - Flight of Icarus

''Fly on your way like an eagle
Fly as high as the sun
On your wings like an eagle
Fly and touch the sun''

If i were to list all my favourite lyrics, there would be like 20 Iron Maiden songs, their lyrics are amazing.
