    Okay.. So this thread is kind of like the what song are you listening to thread. Except this is a song that has been in your head lately. Post the lyrics here, and if you don't have a recurring song, put lyrics to a song that has always been one of your favorites. The lyrics can be done along with music in Youtube fashion, or copy and pasted, whatever works.



    Here is mine:
    I'm Not Myself - Amos Lee

    And if you wanna leave me
    Baby go ahead
    I know you don't believe me
    Oh when I finally said

    That I'm not myself
    When I'm with you
    It takes and breaks
    My heart in two

    I'm half a mile from Jersey
    The headlights on the shore
    You know how much it hurts me
    I never been this deep before

    And I'm not myself
    When I'm with you
    It takes and breaks
    My heart in two

    And oh...

    Does anybody have a clue
    How hard I worked at loving you



    And I'm not myself
    When I'm with you
    It takes and breaks
    My heart in two

    Opeth - Windowpane

    Blank face in the windowpane
    Made clear in seconds of light
    Disappears and returns again
    Counting hours, searching the night
    Might be waiting for someone
    Might be there for us to see
    Might be in need of talking
    Might be staring directly at me
    Inside plays a lullaby
    Slurred voice over children cries
    On the inside

    Haunting loneliness in the eye
    Skin covering secret scars
    His hand is waving a goodbye
    There's no response or action returned

    There is deep prejudice in me
    Outshines all reason inside
    Given dreams all ridden with pain
    And projected unto the lost

    Haven't Met You Yet - Michael Buble

    I'm not surprised.
    Not everything lasts.
    I've broken my heart so many times I stopped keeping track.
    Talk myself in.
    I talk myself out.
    I get all worked up, then I let myself down.

    I tried so very hard not to lose it.
    I came up with a million excuses.
    I thought I thought of every possibility.

    And I know someday that it'll all turn out.
    You'll make me work so we can work to work it out.
    And promise you, kid, that I'll give so much more than I get.
    I just haven't met you yet.

    Mmmm...

    I might have to wait.
    I'll never give up.
    I guess it's half timing,
    And the other half's luck.
    Wherever you are.
    Whenever it's right.
    You'll come out of nowhere and into my life.

    And I know that we can be so amazing.
    And baby your is gonna change me.
    And now I can see every possibility.

    Mmmm...

    But somehow I know that it'll all turn out.
    And you'll make me work so we can work to work it out.
    And I promise you, kid, that I'll give so much more than I get.
    I just haven't met you yet.

    They say all's fair.
    And in love and war.
    But I won't need to fight it.
    We'll get it right and,
    We'll be united.

    And I know that we can be so amazing.
    And being in your life is gonna change me.
    And now I can see every single possibility, mmmm.

    And someday I know it'll all turn out.
    And I'll work to work it out.
    Promise you, kid, I'll give more than I get,
    Than I get, than I get, than I get.

    Ohhh!

    You know it'll all turn out.
    And you'll make me work so we can work to work it out.
    And I promise you, kid, that I'll give so much more than I get.
    I just haven't met you yet.

    I just haven't met you yet.
    Ohh, promise you, kid, to give so much than I get.

    (I said love, love, love, love...)
    I just haven't met you yet

    I just haven't met you yet.


    And I have no idea why, not something I particularly like, just stuck o_oa

    A Line Allows Progress, a Circle Does Not- Bright Eyes

    Sitting around, no work today
    Try pacing to keep awake
    Laying around, no school today
    Just drink until the clock has circled all the way
    It is late afternoon
    As you walk through the rooms
    Of a house that is quiet
    Except for unanswered telephones
    You stand near the sink
    While you're mixing a drink
    You think you don't want to pass out
    Where your roommates will find you again
    Stumble around the neighborhood with nothing to do
    You're always looking for something
    To sniff, smoke, or swallow
    Calling over next door to see what they got
    But you would settle for anything
    That would make your brain slow down or stop
    Break this circle of thoughts you chase
    Before they catch back up with you
    And your parents noticied your thinning face
    All the weight you lost
    All the weight you are losing
    You said, "I'm done feeling like a skeleton
    No more sleepwalking dead"
    You're going to wake from this coma
    You're going to crawl from this bed you have made
    And stop counting on that camera
    That hangs round your neck
    Because it won't ever remember
    What you choose to forget
    As you try to find some source of light
    Try to name one thing you like
    You used to have such a longer list
    And light, you never had to look for it
    But now it's so easy to second guess everything you do
    Until all you want is to finish this half empty glass
    Before the ice melts away
    This feeling always used to pass
    But seems like it's every day
    Seems like it's every night now

    Anyone with depression can relate to this. First off, Conor Oberst is FUCKIN AMAZING and also, this is exactly how I feel the majority of the time. It's a really amazing song.

    Aladdin - One Jump Ahead

    [Aladdin:] Gotta keep
    One jump ahead of the breadline
    One swing ahead of the sword
    I steal only what I can't afford
    ( That's Everything! )

    One jump ahead of the lawmen
    That's all, and that's no joke
    These guys don't appreciate I'm broke

    [Crowd:] Riffraff! Street rat! Soundrel! Take that!

    [Aladdin:] Just a little snack, guys
    [Crowd:] Rip him open, take it back, guys
    [Aladdin:] I can take a hint, gotta face the facts
    You're my only friend, Abu!
    [Crowd:] Who?
    He's become a a one-man rise in crime
    I'd blame parents except he hasn't got 'em
    [Aladdin:] Gotta eat to live, gotta steal to eat
    Tell you all about it when I got the time!

    One jump ahead of the slowpokes
    One skip ahead of my doom
    Next time gonna use a nom de plume
    One jump ahead of the hitmen
    One hit ahead of the flock
    I think I'll take a stroll around the block

    [Crowd:] Stop, thief! Vandal! Outrage! Scandal!

    [Aladdin:] Let's not be too hasty
    [Lady:] Still I think he's rather tasty
    [Aladdin:] Gotta eat to live, gotta steal to eat
    Otherwise we'd get along
    [Crowd:] Wrong!

    [Aladdin:] One jump ahead of the hoofbeats
    (Vandal!)
    One hop ahead of the hump
    (Street rat!)
    One trick ahead of disaster
    (Scoundrel!)
    They're quick, but I'm much faster
    (Take that!)
    Here goes, better throw my hand in
    Wish me happy landin'
    All I gotta do is jump


    I just feel like this more and more lately... My whole reality seems to be changing, so changes my person.
    The only thing that remains is my wit and my optimism.

    I only skimmed the thread OP. Misread it as "Thread that is you".

    Given that I got the thread completely confused, I'm reposting. Aladdin is how I am and who I am at the moment.

    This is what has been in my head ever since it was posted here.

    Rasputin - Turasia

    There lived a certain man in Russia long ago
    He was big and strong, in his eyes a flaming glow
    Most people looked at him with terror and with fear
    But to Moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear
    He could preach the bible like a preacher
    Full of ecstacy and fire
    But he also was the kind of teacher
    Women would desire

    RA RA RASPUTIN
    Lover of the Russian queen
    There was a cat that really was gone
    RA RA RASPUTIN
    Russia's greatest love machine
    It was a shame how he carried on

    He ruled the Russian land and never mind the czar
    But the kasachok he danced really wunderbar
    In all affairs of state he was the man to please
    But he was real great when he had a girl to squeeze
    For the queen he was no wheeler dealer
    Though she'd heard the things he'd done
    She believed he was a holy healer
    Who would heal her son

    (Spoken:)
    But when his drinking and lusting and his hunger
    for power became known to more and more people,
    the demands to do something about this outrageous
    man became louder and louder.

    "This man's just got to go!" declared his enemies
    But the ladies begged "Don't you try to do it, please"
    No doubt this Rasputin had lots of hidden charms
    Though he was a brute they just fell into his arms
    Then one night some men of higher standing
    Set a trap, they're not to blame
    "Come to visit us" they kept demanding
    And he really came

    RA RA RASPUTIN
    Lover of the Russian queen
    They put some poison into his wine
    RA RA RASPUTIN
    Russia's greatest love machine
    He drank it all and he said "I feel fine"

    RA RA RASPUTIN
    Lover of the Russian queen
    They didn't quit, they wanted his head
    RA RA RASPUTIN
    Russia's greatest love machine
    And so they shot him till he was dead

    (Spoken:) Oh, those Russians...

    Money-Chocking Victim

    I am sick and tired and my money's always spent,
    And though their jobs are killing me, their money pays my rent.
    The fuel of world hate, although it's just a seed,
    But when it grows and flowers, it becomes the world's greed.
    Money for the rich, money for the fed,
    God supplies the money and god supplies the dead.
    And when your dead and ready, "exploited" be thy name,
    'Cause after you have money things are never quite the same.
    I don't care for money, and money's not for me,
    The money fueled this empire and our racist history.
    Although I'm forced to use it, the rules have all been set.
    But life is not worth living when your soul is in debt.

    Money kills.
    Money rapes.
    Money lies.
    Money hates.

    My My- Menomena

    What if all my enemies were dead
    and i could forget everything they said
    could I be then who I really am?

    What if I sold everything I own
    And ran away from everyone I know
    could I make another place my home?

    And if I let go all of my ghosts
    who would I dump over the months?

    What if everyone is right?
    Should've taken their advice
    But I can't change my mind

    And if I let go all of my ghosts
    who would I dump over the months?

    (What if everybody else is right?
    should've taken more of their advice)

    Rehab - It Don't Matter


    Sittin in traffic another day of feeling nothing
    Trying to find something I guess it's back to huffin'
    Paint and model glue oh how I die when I look
    At you smilin' lovin' life and all I know is blue
    Rainy days and cold stares broken love affairs
    Everything's beautiful as long as I ain't there
    I guess I wasn't meant to crack a smile who cares
    I think I'll go to sleep for a while now

    I'm barely livin' in my skin depression's my only friend
    And I don't know where I am heading tryin' to forget where I've been
    And I'm so sick of lying God please show me that silver lining
    Cuz I've heard tale and I'm not well my heads full of hell and
    This world's a jail but

    And it don't matter and I don't care
    I let my pain into the air
    Cuz everything good's over there
    And everything here's hard to bear
    And it don't matter and I don't care
    I let my pain into the air
    Cuz everything good's over there
    And everything here's hard to bear

    And as the apin begins to displace had it to ear level
    With this place you see it on my face a state of suspended grace
    Gradually I erase and find comfort in the sickest womb
    I might be present but no in the room
    To whom it may consume melting ensembles bleeding chellos running through Bordellos drama
    Like Othello hidin' out from Poncharello
    Dead off in the Median
    Fallin apart like usual handin' out fliers to my funeral

    So they say that life's a play and that all the world's a stage
    Then for another part I pray the show ends the same way everyday
    And my heart carries the pain of a brain I can't explain
    Am I insane
    Am I insane

    And it don't matter and I don't care
    I let my pain into the air
    Cuz everything good's over there
    And everything here's hard to bear
    And it don't matter and I don't care
    I let my pain into the air
    Cuz everything good's over there
    And everything here's hard to bear

    Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane over the Sea

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcgyKo7vbm4"]YouTube- Songs ... : Neutral Milk Hotel-In the Aeroplane Over the Sea[/ame]

    What a beautiful face
    I have found in this place
    That is circling all round the sun
    What a beautiful dream
    That could flash on the screen
    In a blink of an eye and be gone from me
    Soft and sweet
    Let me hold it close and keep it here with me, me

    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

    What a curious life we have found here tonight
    There is music that sounds from the street
    There are lights in the clouds
    Anna's ghost all around
    Hear her voice as it's rolling and ringing through me
    Soft and sweet
    How the notes all bend and reach above the trees, trees

    Now how I remember you
    How I would push my fingers through
    Your mouth to make those muscles move
    That made your voice so smooth and sweet
    Now we keep where we don't know
    All secrets sleep in winter clothes
    With one you loved so long ago
    Now he don't even know his name

    What a beautiful face
    I have found in this place
    That is circling all round' the sun
    And when we meet on a cloud
    I'll be laughing out loud
    I'll be laughing with everyone I see
    Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all

    Perfume Tree - So Far Away

    sad it's all over, sad it's all over
    sad it's all over, so glad to see you again
    so glad to see your face in the clouds
    high in the sky floating over the crowds
    can't take no more of that dry waiting game
    dying to fly with you over again
    arms outstretched and we're ready to soar
    terrestrial nightmares don't hurt anymore
    leave all our troubles behind as we climb
    safe in the knowledge that we've escaped time
    the others will see as we fly overhead
    we'll laugh until nightfall pretend that we're dead
    as angels we'll watch them our thoughts reading theirs
    true mind over matter we'll share in their cares
    heads on their shoulders we'll help them unseen
    comfort encircled a slate is wiped clean
    they'll leave all their troubles behind as they rise
    safe in their ascent to paradise
    the air is so fresh and the sky is so blue
    a mantle to wrap all around me and you
    to warm and to cool to protect us from all
    to hold us up high and to catch when we fall
    no sorrow no sadness affects us today
    our tears of the past are now so far away
    a smile sparkles white as we laugh and we rave
    so close to the crest of a heavenly wave

    The Strawbs-Just Love

    I can see you through my window
    With the world you just go passing by
    I can hear you in my garden
    Waiting for my flowers all to die
    Nothing in here is real
    Nothing in here is real
    No matter how I try
    I can't get you out of my mind.

    It's just love
    Don't try to understand it
    You can't put your arms around it
    You might never love again
    It's just love
    Don't try to understand it
    If you've money you'd best spend it
    You might never love again.

    There's your face right in my mirror
    I can hear you calling out my name
    Feel your hand upon my shoulder
    Will I ever be the same again
    Nothing in here is real
    Nothing in here is real
    No matter how I try
    I can't get you out of my mind.

    Without your song
    Something's gone
    Something good enough to hang your heart on.

    If you call me I will answer
    You will always be my helping hand
    And if I need you in my darkness
    I know you will always understand
    Nothing in here is real
    Nothing in here is real
    No matter how I try
    I can't get you out of my mind.

    Heya Tom, it's Bob,
    From the office down the hall.
    It's good to see you buddy,
    How've ya been?
    Things have been okay for me,
    Except that I'm a zombie now.
    I really wish you'd let us in.
    I think I speak for all of us when I say I understand
    Why you folks might hesitate to submit to our demands,
    But here's an FYI - you're all gonna die, screaming.

    All we wanna do is eat your brains
    Were not unreasonable,
    I mean no-one's gonna eat your eyes
    All we wanna do is eat your brains
    Were at an impasse here,
    Maybe we should compromise.
    If you open up the door,
    We'll all come inside and eat your brains.

    I don't wanna nitpick Tom, but is this really your plan -
    Spend your whole life locked inside a mall?
    Maybe that's okay for now,
    But someday you'll be out of food and guns,
    And you'll have to make the call.
    I'm not surprised to see you haven't thought it through enough -
    You never had the head for all that 'bigger picture' stuff.
    But Tom, that's what I do,
    And I plan on eating you, slowly.

    All we wanna do is eat your brains
    Were not unreasonable,
    I mean no-one's gonna eat your eyes
    All we wanna do is eat your brains
    Were at an impasse here
    Maybe we should compromise
    If you open up the door,
    We'll all come inside and eat your brains

    I'd like to help you Tom,
    In any way I can.
    I sure appreciate the way you're working with me.
    I'm not a monster Tom - well, technically I am...I guess I am...

    I've got another meeting Tom;
    Maybe we could wrap it up.
    I know we'll get to common ground somehow.
    Meanwhile I'll report back to my colleagues,
    Who are chewing on the doors.
    I guess we'll table this for now.
    I'm glad to see you take constructive criticism well
    Thank you for your time, I know we're all busy as hell.
    And we'll put this thing to bed,
    When I bash your head open.

    All we wanna do is eat your brains
    Were not unreasonable,
    I mean no-one's gonna eat your eyes
    All we wanna do is eat your brains
    Were at an impasse here
    Maybe we should compromise
    If you open up the door,
    We'll all come inside and eat your brains
