Lyrics you love


Recommended Posts

I thought this might be an interesting thread idea.

Just someplace to post lyrics that touch you in anyway. Whether they inspire you or maybe they just can't get out of your head.

One song I haven't been able to get out of my head for nearly a month now is "That's All I Ask of You" from Phantom of the Opera.

I've always loved this song, but since I've seen the movie like four times already, it's permanently affixed.

Not to mention it's got special meaning

:wub:

RAOUL

No more talk of darkness,

Forget these wide-eyed fears.

I'm here,

nothing can harm you -

my words will warm and calm you.

Let me be your freedom,

let daylight dry your tears.

I'm here,

with you, beside you,

to guard you

and to guide you . . .

CHRISTINE

Say you'll love me

every waking moment,

turn my head

with talk of summertime . . .

Say you need me

with you,

now and always . . .

promise me that all you say is true

that's all I ask

of you . . .

RAOUL

Let me be your shelter,

let me be your light.

You're safe:

No-one will find you

your fears are far behind you . . .

CHRISTINE

All I want is freedom,

a world with no more night . . .

and you

always beside me

to hold me

and to hide me . . .

RAOUL

Then say you'll share with me

one love, one lifetime . . .

let me lead you from your solitude . . .

Say you need me

with you

here,

beside you . . .

anywhere you go,

let me go too

Christine,

that's all I ask

of you . . .

CHRISTINE

Say you'll share with me

one love, one lifetime . . .

say the word

and I will follow you . . .

BOTH

Share each day with me,

each night, each morning . . .

CHRISTINE

Say you love me . . .

RAOUL

You know I do . . .

BOTH

Love me -

that's all I ask

of you . . .

Anywhere you go

let me go too . . .

Love me

that's all I ask

of you . .

Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven

(Page/Plant)

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold

And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed

With a word she can get what she came for.

Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure

'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.

In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,

Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,

Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west,

And my spirit is crying for leaving.

In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,

And the voices of those who stand looking.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,

Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune

Then the piper will lead us to reason.

And a new day will dawn for those who stand long

And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,

It's just a spring clean for the May queen.

Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run

There's still time to change the road you're on.

And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,

The piper's calling you to join him,

Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know

Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road

Our shadows taller than our soul.

There walks a lady we all know

Who shines white light and wants to show

How everything still turns to gold.

And if you listen very hard

The tune will come to you at last.

When all are one and one is all

To be a rock and not to roll.

And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

Led Zeppelin - No Quarter

(Jones/Page/Plant)

Close the door, put out the light.

You know they won't be home tonight.

The snow falls hard and don't you know?

The winds of Thor are blowing cold.

They're wearing steel that's bright and true

They carry news that must get through.

They choose the path where no-one goes.

They hold no quarter.

Walking side by side with death, The devil mocks their every step

The snow drives back the foot that's slow, The dogs of doom are howling more

They carry news that must get through, To build a dream for me and you

They choose the path where no-one goes.

They hold no quarter. They ask no quarter.

The pain, the pain without quarter.

They ask no quarter.

The dogs of doom are howling more!

kind of a darker song but its a good one

mudvayne- internal primates forever

Cop provisions feed my addictions mistakes I made then

I opened up the holes and they crawled in,

Now when it's time for the feed they won't let me forget,

They ride upon my back and they'll fuck me with their need,

My invisible enemies all my monkeys

Their coming they're coming their coming they're coming to take me

away.

Disgusted with my position so submissive I am the only way we get

away is give in sharpen up the razors stab the needles into pipes to

kill cravings so sick of this in me can't stand the want to need

can't get free always got a grip on me

There's no use to fight this wrenching tourniquet of deprivation

obedience subservience leads to substance

Give it to me, give it to me

Leave my motivation to chemical dependency no room for patience

Don't want it need it come on right now

[Chorus voice 2]

Everything I've become now is everything I didn't want to be

Every time I try to run away I fall on my face they drag me back

Every time I try to run away I fall on my face

Help! They won't leave me alone

If I would have known back then what I know now I 'd take it back

If I would have known back then what I know now I 'd take it

back,

I'd take it back I'd take it all fuckin' back

Stay away stay away

Hold me I'm shaking violently

Pull me out of my covering

Mold me into a new man

Lull me into a deep sleep

There's no use to fight this wrenching tourniquet of deprivation

obedience subservience leads to substance

Even if you want you can't stop

Internal primates forever

I love really freaky songs.

Makes me miss my boy more.

Sigh

"That's What's Up" by Avant

Wanna take you with me,

on a late night creep girl,

That's What's up That's What's up

And while you're here'

Erase all your fears

That's What's up That's What's up

Wanna take you to the shower,

and spend about an hour

That's What's up That's What's up

And hold and embrace,

And girl I wanna taste

That's What's up That's What's up

Over the phone is taking to long

I can't wait to see you so we can get it on

It doesn't matter about the place

It's going down,

when I see your pretty face

[2x]

After the first one ends the fun will begin

That's What's up That's What's up

I'm gonna give you something

to run and tell your friends

That's What's up That's What's up

Like getting freaky at the movies,

I don't care if it's PG

That's What's up That's What's up

In the elevator going down, shut it off

so we can clown

That's What's up That's What's up

In the limo, listening to my demo

Girl close that middle window,

do you want me to stop N O

Or the airplane, where turbulence

ain't no thang,

I got the tool to make you

scream my name, it's going down, But

Over the phone is taking to long

I can't wait to see you so we can get it on

It dosen't matter about the place

It's going down,

when I see your pretty face

[2x]

In my H-2 where the seat fold down

like clothes

I'm about to jump in the back row,

Girl you making me curl my toes

At your job, when everybody goes on break

Girl let's steal the security tape,

Cause baby I can't wait

song that freaking moves me is

"black" by pearl jam

All the love gone bad

Turned my world to black

Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I'll be...yeah...

Uh huh...uh huh...ooh...

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life,

I know you'll be the sun

In somebody else's sky, but why

Why, why can't it be, why can't it be mine...

Lateralus by Tool

Black then white are all I see in my infancy.

red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.

lets me see.

As below, so above and beyond, I imagine

drawn beyond the lines of reason.

Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.

Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must

Feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Black then white are all I see in my infancy.

red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.

lets me see there is so much more

and beckons me to look through to these infinite possibilities.

As below, so above and beyond, I imagine

drawn outside the lines of reason.

Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.

Withering my intuition leaving all these opportunities behind.

Feed my will to feel this moment urging me to cross the line.

Reaching out to embrace the random.

Reaching out to embrace whatever may come.

I embrace my desire to

feel the rhythm, to feel connected

enough to step aside and weep like a widow

to feel inspired, to fathom the power,

to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain,

to swing on the spiral

of our divinity and still be a human.

With my feet upon the ground I lose myself

between the sounds and open wide to suck it in,

I feel it move across my skin.

I'm reaching up and reaching out,

I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.

And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.

We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.

Spiral out. Keep going, going...

And I'll add Tool's version of No Quarter as well, seeing as we already have the Zeppelin one.

:)

Lock the door, kill the light.

No one's coming home tonight.

The sun beats down and don't you know?

All our lives are growing cold, oh...

They bring news that must get through.

To build a dream for me and you, oh.

Locked in a place where no one goes.

They ask no quarter

They have no quarter.

Lock the door, kill the light

No one's coming home tonight

It's getting colder (7x)

Locked in a place where no one goes.

Lock the door, kill the light

No one's coming home tonight

They bring news that must get through.

Dying peace in me and you

Locked in a place where no one goes.

We have no quarter

We have no quarter

We ask no quarter

Come on, my star is fading

And I swerve out of control

If i, if I’d only waited

I’d not be stuck here in this hole

Come here my star is fading

And I swerve out of control

And I swear I waited and waited

I’ve got to get out of this hole

But time is on your side

Its on your side now

Not pushing you down and all around

It’s no cause for concern

Come on, oh my star is fading

And I see no chance of release

And I know I’m dead on the surface

But I am screaming underneath

And time is on your side

Its on your side now

Not pushing you down

And all around, no

It’s no cause for concern

Stuck on the end of this ball and chain

And I’m on my way back down again

Stood on a bridge, tied to the noose

Sick to the stomach

You can say what you mean

But it won’t change a thing

I’m sick of the secrets

Stood on the edge, tied to a noose

You came along and you cut me loose

You came along and you cut me loose

You came along and you cut me loose

Everytime I hear this song I think of all my boys in the military. There's so many of them. My heroes, each and every one of them.

"Hero" Chad Kroeger

I am so high. I can hear heaven.

I am so high. I can hear heaven.

No heaven, no heaven dont hear me.

And they say that a hero can save us.

Im not gonna stand here and wait.

I'll hold onto the wings of the eagles.

Watch as they all fly away.

Someone told me love will all save us.

But how can that be, look what love gave us.

A world full of killing, and blood-spilling

That world never came.

And they say that a hero can save us.

Im not gonna stand here and wait.

I'll hold onto the wings of the eagles.

Watch as they all fly away.

Now that the world isnt ending, its love that Im sending to you.

It isnt the love of a hero, and thats why I fear it wont do.

And they say that a hero can save us.

Im not gonna stand here and wait.

I'll hold onto the wings of the eagles.

Watch as they all fly away.

And they're watching us

(Watching Us)

As they all fly away.

Slipknot - Surfacing , great lyrics

Running out of ways to run

I can’t see, I can’t be

Over and over and under my skin

All this attention is doing me in!

Fuck it all! fuck this world!

Fuck everything that you stand for!

Don’t belong! don’t exist!

Don’t give a shit!

Don’t ever judge me!

Picking through the parts exposed

Taking shape, taking shag

Over and over and under my skin

All this momentum is doing me in!

Fuck it all! fuck this world!

Fuck everything that you stand for!

Don’t belong! don’t exist!

Don’t give a shit!

Don’t ever judge me!

You got all my love, livin’ in your own hate

Drippin’ hole man, hard step, no fate

Show you nuthin’, but I ain’t holdin’ back

Every damn word I say is a sneak attack

When I get my hands on you

Ain’t a fucking thing you can do

Get this cuz you’re never gonna get me

I am the very disease you pretend to be

I am the push that makes you move

Lateralus by Tool

every tool song in existence has amazing lyrics so posting them is uneeded. its understood in the topic :laugh: i would post some chevelle but i have hard time understanding the stuff behind most of the lyrics...so i'll just post one of the ones i understand...

chevelle- vitamin r

Some will learn; many do.

Cover up or spread it out.

Turn around, had enough,

Pick and choose or pass it on.

Buying in, heading for

Suffer now or suffer then.

It's bad enough

I want the fear... need the fear

[Pre-Chorus]

Cause he's alone (he has become)

He's alone (he has become)

[Chorus:]

Well if they're making it, making it

Then they're pushing it, pushing it

And they're leading us along

The hassle of all the screaming fits

That panic makes remorse

After all, what's the point?

Course levitation is possible.

If you're a fly; achieved and gone

Theres time for this and so much more.

It's typical - create a world

A special place of my design

To never cope or never care just use the key

[Pre-Chorus]

Cause he's alone (where have we gone)

He's alone (where have we gone)

[Chorus]

Over and Over a slave

Became

Over and Over a slave

Became

Over and Over a slave

Became

Over and Over a slave

Became

[Chorus x2]

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

chevelle- forfeit

We'll not be shaken and jump into this and

Be persuasive

Just carry on and

Make my mind up

To go through this or

Be firm and sit

In silence

Cause I want to fight

I want to fight

I want to prove I'm right

I want to fight

I want to fight

So turn and forfeit

Forfeit(x4)

Learn from this

Prehistoric dance

And refrain from talking

It solves our problems

Medicated

Could do some cure or

Find a way to relate

Or just shut up

Cause I want to fight

I want to fight

I want to prove I'm right

I want to fight

I want to fight

So turn and forfeit

Forfeit (x6)

I want to fight

I want to fight

I want to prove I’m (right)

(I want to fight)

(I want to fight)

I want to prove I’m (right)

I want to fight

I want to fight

So turn and forfeit

I want to fight

I want to fight

So turn and forfeit

So step up

So step up

And forfeit

So step up

Forfeit (x5)

chevelle- dont fake this

Ignoring a loss of sight,

Afraid to blink, I might lose the sun.

But don't make this out, to be more,

Than it isn't behind every lie.

There's a burden within.

Yes you're my son.

This suffering,

That's kept within.

Disposable men, lost.

Inside, he was negative.

This place, once more was underground.

So look and connect,

we're refusing to rust.

Healing has to begin, in the past.

So don't fake this,

Don't fake this,

Don't fake this,

Don't...

This suffering,

That's kept within.

Disposable men, lost.

Don't fake this,

Don't fake this,

Don't fake this,

Don't...

Fake, fake, fake.

This suffering,

That's kept within.

Disposable men, lost.

So don't fake this,

Don't fake this,

Don't fake this,

Don't... fake.

Fake, fake.

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

chevelle- point #1

It seems I’ve gained the world but have nothing

To keep tabs upon this loss isn’t wasted time

Face opportunities to recognize now we have time

Rebuke, don’t choke on this twisted dream

‘Cause he’ll pay for it, the whole sum

Or magnify pain is point number one

‘Cause he’ll say pay for it, the whole sum

Or magnify pain is point number one

It seems I’ve gained the world but have nothing

To keep tabs upon this loss isn’t wasted time

Face opportunities to recognize now we have time

Rebuke, don’t choke on this twisted dream

‘Cause he’ll say pay for it, the whole sum

Or magnify pain is point number one

We need a healing aloe plant

Your soothing hands run down my back

Hate - Well couldn’t do, couldn’t do no wrong

Hate – Watch it boy, this could do you in

Much like a healing aloe plant

Your soothing hands run down my back

Much like a healing aloe plant

Your soothing hands run down my back

Much like a healing aloe plant

Your soothing hands run down my back

chevelle - comfortable liar

Broad, is the sea

The salts enters the wounds

My take on you is simple

So heal your fear

To heal your fear

Time spent waiting offshore

The calm before the storm

My take from you is simple

So heal your fear

To heal your fear

You're such a comfortable liar

You're such a comfortable liar

You're such a comfortable liar

You're such a comfortable liar

You're such a comfortable liar

You're so calm

Cause I said "Wrong!"

You comfortable liar

You comfortable liar

You comfortable liar

You comfortable liar

Liar!

This song always gets me.

Tesla-What You Give

-----

Who's the one that makes you happy?

Or maybe, who's the one always on your mind?

And who is the reason you're living for?

Who's the reason for your smile?

I feel so lonely and I know I'm not the only one

To ever feel this way

I love you so much that I think I'm going insane

Gone crazy, Outta my head

Gone crazy, Outta my head

Can't think about nothin' but your good, good love

What you give

Everyone needs somebody

And you know

Everybody needs someone

Well then I guess it's true

Everybody needs a special kind of love

And you're the only one I'm thinking of

You mean the world to me

You are my only

I feel so lonely and I know I'm not the only one

To carry on this way

I love you so much I lose track of time

Lose track of the days

I'm goin' outta my head

Goin' crazy, Outta my head

Can't think about nothin' but your good, good love

What you give

It's not what you got, It's what you give

It ain't the life you choose, it's the life you live

It's only what you give

It's not what you got

But the life you live

It's the life you live

You're the one that makes me happy

Oh yeah baby

And you're the one always on my mind

Well then I guess it's true

You are my reason

My one and only

That I've been living for

Why can't forever be

Forever and nothing more?

I feel so lonely and I know I'm not the only one

To ever feel this way

I love you so much I lose track of time

Lose track of the days

I'm goin' outta my head

Goin' crazy, Outta my head

Can't think about nothin' but your good, sweet love

What you give

It's not what you got, It's what you give

It ain't the life you choose, It's the life you live

It's not what you got, It's what you give

And it ain't what it's not, But what it is

Only what you give

It's not what you got, But what you give

Only what you give

It's only what you give, yeah

Can't get enough girl, of that sweet lovin' baby

What you give

I'm in a sappy mood today, missing my boy like crazy, so I'll probably spend the day listening to sappy love music

To Make You Feel My Love

Garth Brooks

When the rain is blowing in your face

And the whole world is on your case

I would offer you a warm embrace

To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows and the stars appear

And there is no one to dry your tears

I could hold you for a million years

To make you feel my love

I know you haven't made your mind up yet

But I would never do you wrong

I've known it from the moment that we met

There's no doubt in my mind where you belong

I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue

I'd go crawling down the avenue

There ain't nothing that I wouldn't do

To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rollin' sea

Down the highway of regret

The winds of change are blowing wild and free

But you ain't seen nothing like me yet

There ain't nothing that I wouldn't do

Go to the ends of the earth for you

Make you happy, make your dreams come true

To make you feel my love
