Lightbulb Fave Lyrics ,and what they mean to u [personally.if so]

I thought I'd start another lyric thread but one where you can sorta give an overview :if it's had an impact on you? if it holds any relevance to your existence.blah blah blah..

My first:
A nice song ...when things go bad and I hate being me then it is a good song to listen to ,mope around to......and hope for better days...."looking for speacial things inside of me"

Superman
Performed by Five For Fighting


I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naive
I'm just out to find
The better part of me

I'm more than a bird...I'm more than a plane
More than some pretty face beside a train
It's not easy to be me

Wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home I'll never see

It may sound absurd...but don't be nieve
Even Heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed...but won't you concede
Even Heroes have the right to dream
It's not easy to be me

Up, up and away...away from me
It's all right...You can all sleep sound tonight
I'm not crazy...or anything...

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naive
Men weren't meant to ride
With clouds between their knees

I'm only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me

It's not easy to be me.

barbra :The way we were

Great song.gets me everytime....especially this line:
Memories
May be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply to choose to forget


Although some things we can never forget...

Memories
Like the corners of my mind
Misty watercolor memories
Of the way we were

Scattered pictures
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were

Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me - Would we? Could we?

Memories
May be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply to choose to forget

So itís the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were

So itís the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were

Remembering September 11th

One sad song inspired by that great tragedy...Great lyrics .says it all.....True about noticing hte sunset for the first time,,,I've gotten to counting my blessings more since then..


Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)
BY ALAN JACKSON

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
Were you in the yard with your wife and children
Or working on some stage in L.A.
Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke
Rising against that blue sky
Did you shout out in anger, in fear for your neighbor
Or did you just sit down and cry
VERSE
Did you weep for the children who lost there dear loved ones
And pray for the ones who don't know
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below
Did you burst out with pride for the red, white and blue
And the heros who died just doin' what they do
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself and what really matters
CHORUS
Iím just a singer of simple songs
Iím not a real political man
I watch CNN but Iím not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus, and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young.
Faith, hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love.
VERSE
Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
Teaching a class full of innocent children
Or driving down some cold interstate
Did you feel guilty cause youíre a survivor
In a crowded room did you feel alone?
Did you call up your mother to tell her you love her
Did you dust off that bible at home
Did you open your eyes in hope it never happened
Close your eyes and not go to sleep
Did you notice the sunset for the first time in ages
Speak to some stranger on the street
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
Go out and buy you a gun
Did you turn off that violent old movie your watchin
And turn on I Love Lucy reruns
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some strangers
Or stand in line and give your own blood
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
And thank god you had somebody to love

And the greatest is love.
And the greatest is love.

Still - Brian McKnight

This song appeals to me...just read the lyrics...it appeals to each and every one of us, with or without someone real special to call their own...

Funny when you
Stop and think
Time goes faster
Than you blink
But nothing's ever
Like it was
But girl we've got
A special thing
And all the happiness it brings
Is more than enough

I know it's hard to believe
You're still the
Biggest part of me
All I'm living for

I still think about you
I still dream about you
I still want you
And need you by my side


All I'm living for

I still think about you
I still dream about you
I still want you
And need you by my side

I'm still mad about you
All I ever wanted was you
You're still the one
You're still the one

If you love me
Look into my eyes
And say you do
I've been waiting
All my life
For someone
Just like you

And baby after all
We've been through
Girl I'm still in love with you
And I want you to know
I do, I do

I still think about you
I still dream about you
I still want you
And need you by my side

I'm still mad about you
All I ever wanted was you
You're still the one
You're still the one

One Last Cry - Brian McKnight (Again)

This song reminds me of breaking up with my ex whom I only started loving after I realized he was gone...and having to come to terms with him falling in love with someone else...

My shattered dreams and broken heart
Are mending on the shelf
I saw you holding hands
Standing close to someone else
Now I sit all alone
Wishing all my feelings was gone
I gave my best to you
Nothing for me to do
But have one last cry


Chorus:
One last cry
Before I leave it all behind
I gotta put you out of my mind this time
Stop living a lie
I guess I'm down to my last cry

Cry.....


I was here
You were there
Guess we never could agree
While the sun shines on you
I need some love to rain on me
Still I sit all alone
Wishing all my feelings was gone
Gotta get over you
Nothing for me to do
But have one last cry

Post Troubles - Alicia Keys

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Dear Lord can you take it away? (Oooh)
This pain in my heart that just follows me by day
And at night stalks me like the shawdows on my wall (Mmmmm)
Oh, my goodness

It feels like the world is closin' on me
It feels like my dreams will never come to me
I keep on slippin' deeper into myself
And I'm scared, so scared

If your troubled, you just gotta let it go
If your worried baby, you just gotta let it go
All your hustlin' scene for nothing, you just gotta take it slow
When you need me baby, all you do is let me know

Why does it feel that my mind is constantly trying to pull me down
I can't seem to get away
Continuous mistakes I know I'm able for
How long will I feel so out of place

If your troubled, you just gotta let it go
If your worried baby, you just gotta let it go
All your hustlin' scene for nothing, you just gotta take it slow
When you need me baby, all you do is let me know

If your troubled, you just gotta let it go
If your worried baby, you just gotta let it go
All your hustlin' scene for nothing, you just gotta take it slow
When you need me baby, all you do is let me know

If your troubled, you just gotta let it go
If your worried baby, you just gotta let it go
All your hustlin' scene for nothing, you just gotta take it slow
When you need me baby, all you do is let me know

If your troubled, you just gotta let it go
If your worried baby, you just gotta let it go
All your hustlin' scene for nothing, you just gotta take it slow
When you need me baby, all you do is let me know

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

i love this song.... the beat, the rhythm.. the lyrics.... so suits my mood when i'm having one of 'those' days......

totally love the second verse....
"It feels like the world is closin' on me
It feels like my dreams will never come to me
I keep on slippin' deeper into myself" ......

Alive

Everyday is a new day
Iím thankful for every breath I take
I wonít take it for granted
So I learn from my mistakes
Itís beyond my control, sometimes itís best to let go
Whatever happens in this lifetime
So I trust in love
You have given me peace of mind

chorus:
I feel so alive for the very first time
I canít deny you
I feel so alive
I feel so alive for the very first time
And I think I can fly

Sunshine upon my face
A new song for me to sing
Tell the world how I feel inside
Even though it might cost me everything
Now that I know this, so beyond, I canít hold this
I can never turn my back away
Now that Iíve seen you
I can never look away

chorus

bridge:
Now that I know you (I could never turn my back away)
Now that I see you (I could never look away)
Now that I know you (I could never turn my back away)
Now that I see you (I believe no matter what they say)

chorus x 2

Unhappy Jagged Edge....... Goodbye

Sometimes...
What may be the best thing for you to do
Sometimes it the hardest thing for you to do
And thats real
Cause I know that I love you
I know how I feel about you
But I also know that don't make everything alright
And for that reason
I gotta say goodbye

Tell me have you ever been in a
Situation where the best thing you could do
Is the hardest thing you've ever done
But you try to do whats right
And I know that deep down inside
That I really wanna be there by your side
But I can't stand to see you cry
Not when its because of me

And its over, I'll never love another
I'm always thinking of her, I'm doing this because of her

Don't wanna say goodbye
I don't wanna let her see me cry
Looking out the window and wondering why
Did we have to say all those things that we said last night
Baby I don't wanna say goodbye
So I'm just standing here wondering why
Just don't like to see when you cry
So I'ma say goodbye

If you think I cause I packed your stuff
That inside I ain't really really cracking up
Cause you're wrong I just hide it good
Cause I know thats what you need
And there's more to life than loving yourself
You gotta learn to love somebody else
And thats why I do the things that I do

And its over, I'll never love another
I'm always thinking of her, I'm doing this because of her

Don't wanna say goodbye
I don't wanna let her see me cry
Looking out the window and wondering why
Did we have to say all those things that we said last night
Baby I don't wanna say goodbye
So I'm standing here wondering why
Just don't wanna see when you cry
So I'ma say goodbye

There's no one in this world that can ever take your place
All the love that we share, it can never be erased
And I know that, that it hurts so bad
And its so that, that you're the best I've had

There's no one in this world that can ever take your place
All the love that we share, it can never be erased
And I know that, that it hurts so bad
And its so that, that you're the best I've had

There's no one in this world that can ever take your place
All the love that we share, it can never be erased
And I know that, that it hurts so bad
And it's so that, that you're the best I've had

There's no one in this world that can ever take your place
All the love that we share, it can never be erased
And I know that, that it hurts so bad
And it's so that, that you're the best I've had

Unhappy Marc Doresy - Crave

I wake up to shadows,
touching your pillow looking,
for a trace of your smile.
And thatís when it hit me,
youíre no longer with me,
in fact is been quite a while,
since I sit here drinking coffee as you sipped your tea,
and you swore youíd always love ,
and care for me.
And even though there is no more us to save.

Its you I crave

I crave your touch,
I crave your lips,
I miss so much,
the excitement of your kiss,
and since your gone,
my heart wonít behave,
its your love that I still crave.

It may look like Iím happy,
people who know me,
they know Iím not doing so well.
I heard that you been dating,
and though I been waiting,
I had found you and no one else.
And just the thought of never waking up with, you again,
always turned me inside out,
how could, we let it end,
And even there is no more us to save.

Its you I crave

I crave your touch,
I crave your lips,
I miss so much,
the excitement of your kiss,
and since your gone,
my heart wonít behave,
its your love that I still crave.

I should have known,
I should have seen,
cause you were always, there,
inside my every dream.

know that I will try, love will never die, I think of you and I, Night and day, though, my, mind, knows, its too late, to say, your love I crave>

I crave your touch,
I crave your lips,
I miss so much,
the excitement of your kiss,
and since your gone,
my heart wonít behave,
its your love that I still crave

I crave your touch, I crave your lips, I miss so much, the excitement of your kiss, and since your gone, my heart wonít behave, its your love that I still crave

crave for, your, touch, crave, for your lips, since you been gone, my heart wonít behave

I crave for your touch, I crave for your lips, Iím missing you so much, I need your kiss, and since you been gone, my heart just wonít behaveÖits your love that I still crave
I crave your love love love....crave in the morning
