Music Song lyrics that describe you

Recommended Posts

So, I thought this would be a pretty interesting topic. Which song lyrics do you think describe you? It could be from a regular song, a hymm, a musical, anything. Apologies if this topic has already been made.

Only one thing comes to mind:

What would I give if I could live out of these waters?
What would I pay to spend a day warm on the sand?
Bet'cha on land they understand
Bet they don't reprimand their daughters
Bright young women sick of swimmin'
Ready to stand

And ready to know what the people know
Ask 'em my questions and get some answers
What's a fire and why does it - what's the word?
Burn?

When's it my turn?
Wouldn't I love, love to explore that shore up above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that world

My life is full of empty promises

And broken dreams

I'm hoping things will look up

But there ain't no job openings

I feel discouraged hungry and malnourished

Living in this house with no furnace, unfurnished

And I'm sick of working dead end jobs with lame pay

And I'm tired of being hired and fired the same day

But eff it, if you know the rules to the game play

Cause when we die we know were all going the same way

It's cool to be the player, but it sucks to be the fan

When all you need is bucks to be the man

Plus a luxury sedan

Too comfortable and roomy in a six

They threw me in the mix

With all these gloomy lunatics

Walk around depressed

And smoke a pound of sess a day

And yesterday went by so quick it seems like it was just today

My daughter wants to throw the ball but I'm too stressed to play

Live half my life and throw the rest away

"Everchanging" by Rise Against
 

In the face
Of change
That's when she turned to me and said
"I'm not sure anymore"

And there
Amidst the waves and the cloudless skies
That blanket the year before
I watch my life wash ashore

Have you ever been a part of something
That you thought would never end?
And then, of course it did
Have you ever felt the weight inside you
Pulling away inside your skin?
And then something had to give

Now the lines are drawn
Is this feeling gone?
The best parts of this have come and gone
And now that is all this is
With the reasons clear
We'll spend another year
Without direction, full of fear
And now things will be different

There's nothing simple when it comes to you and I
Always something in this everchanging life
And there probably always will
Now that time is getting harder to come by,
The same arguments are always on our mind
{We've} killed this slowly fading light

Now the lines are drawn
Is this feeling gone?
The best parts of this have come and gone
And now that is all this is
With the reasons clear
We'll spend another year
Without direction, full of fear
But now things will be different

And now something
Has kept me here too long
And you can't leave me
If I'm already gone

Well now something (hey) 
Has kept me here too long 
And you can't leave me (hey) 
If I'm already gone

Now let's say that something (hey) 
Has kept me here too long 
And you can't leave me (hey) 
If I'm already gone

And we make the same mistakes
We're always hanging on
Break the promises we're always leaning on
All this time spent waking up
{Now I} keep this line open to get this call from you
{As you} speak the words that keep me coming back to you
Now this time it's all different

Now something
Has kept me here too long
And now I'm gone

This has been my favorite song since it came out. It's always really stuck with me. I feel like people are always trying to tell me how to think and feel, or something is always trying to bring me down in some way. This song inspires me to stick to my values, stay positive, and forget all the bullshit.

 

Have a Nice Day - Bon Jovi

 

Why, you wanna tell me how to live my life?
Who, are you to tell me if it's black or white?
Mama, can you hear me? Try to understand.
Is innocence the difference between a boy and a man?
My daddy lived the lie; that's just the price that he paid.
Sacrificed his life, just slavin' away.

Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto
that gets me through the night,
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to;
I'm gonna live my life
shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice.
Standing on the ledge, I'll show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, have a nice day.
Have a nice day.

Take a look around you; nothing's what it seems.
We're living in the broken home of hopes and dreams,
Let me be the first to shake a helping hand,
of anybody brave enough to take a stand.
I've knocked on every door, on every dead end street,
looking for forgiveness.
What's left to believe?
Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto
that gets me through the night,
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to;
I'm gonna live my life
shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice.
Standing on the ledge, I'll show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, have a nice day.
Have a nice day.

When the world keeps trying to drag me down,
I gotta raise my hands, I'm gonna stand my ground.
Well I say, have a nice day.
Have a nice day.

there's banging on the wall
it's 5 am i've got no sleep at all
just thoughts of how i might
struggle through tomorrow
too much time in one day
too much time to occupy
with boring thoughts
boring moods
boring bedtimes
won't tell a single soul
that my soul's gone
it's hard to write this song
it's all a joke
it's all been wrote down by 

someone that's probably dead

Me in the morning,

 

SHUT UP!

SHUT UP!

SHUT UP WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU!

SHUT UP!

SHUT UP!

SHUT UP!

I'M ABOUT TO BREAK!

EVERYTHING YOU SAY TO ME

BRINGS ME ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE EDGE

AND I'M ABOUT TO BREAK!

 

- "One Step Closer" by Linkin Park

I'm a cork on the ocean

Floating over the raging sea

How deep is the ocean?

How deep is the ocean?

I lost my way

Hey hey hey

 

I'm a rock in a landslide

Rolling over the mountainside

How deep is the valley?

How deep is the valley?

It kills my soul

Hey hey hey

 

I'm a leaf on a windy day

Pretty soon I'll be blown away

How long will the wind blow?

How long will the wind blow?

When all alone in my chair, I just go about wishing
Wanna be strong, really wanna be trusted, ahh

When all alone in my bed, I just go about yearning
Wanna be cool, I also wanna be like him

But that's not something I can do so easily
This is not simply my way, my own style
Gotta get a hold of my life

I wanna fly high
So I can reach the highest of all the heavens
Somebody will be
Waiting for me so
I've got to fly higher

When all alone in my sleep, I just go about dreaming
I see myself there, having the same adventure

If I just follow you, I will never see the light
Now is the time to find my way through this life
Trying so hard to be strong

I've gotta keep going
Everything is a brand new challenge for me
And I will believe
Believe in myself
This is the only way for me

[Guitar solo]
Many friends help me out, in return I help them
Certain things I can do
And there are things that only I can do
No one's alone

I wanna fly high
So I can reach the highest of all the heavens
Somebody will be
Waiting for me so
I've got to fly higher

Believe In Myself By Kaz Silver
