yeah I'd break bread and wine
if there was a church I could receive in

'cause I need it now

to take the cup
to fill it up
to drink it slow
can't let you go

You are such a fool
to worry like you do.
I know it's tough
and you can never get enough
of what you don't really need


Sometimes I feel like my brain is going in about 20 different directions. It reminds me to slow down and take a deep breath and that it will be okay.

very interesting thread! there are definitely certain lyrics that have "spoken" to me at different times in my life, for different reasons.

from "Stay":

Green light, Seven Eleven
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes
You don't smoke, don't even want to
Hey now, check your change
....
Red lights, gray morning
You stumble out of a hole in the ground
A vampire or a victim
It depends on who's around


from "Tryin to Throw Your Arms Around the World":

Six o'clock in the morning
You're the last to hear the warning
You've been trying to throw your arms
Around the world
You've been falling off the sidewalk
Your lips move but you can't talk
Tryin' to throw your arms around the world
....
Nothin' much to say I guess
Just the same as all the rest
Been trying to throw your arms around the world
And a woman needs a man
Like a fish needs a bicycle
When you're tryin' to throw your arms around the world


from "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses":

You're an accident waiting to happen
You're a piece of glass left there on the beach


from "Last Night on Earth":

She's not waiting on a saviour to come
She's at the bus-stop with News of the World and the Sun
Sun, here it comes
She's not waiting for anyone
....
She hasn't been to bed in a week
She'll be dead soon then she'll sleep
....
She already knows it hurts
She's living like it's the last night on earth


From "If God Would Send His Angels":

Nobody else here baby
No one here to blame
No one to point the finger
It's just you and me and the rain

Hey if God will send his angels
And if God will send a sign
And if God will send his angels
Would everything be alright


From "Walk On":

And if your glass heart should crack
And for a second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Walk on

And I know it aches
And your heart it breaks
You can only take so much
Walk on

Leave it behind
You've got to leave it behind

oops! sorry, it says that i have to pick just one lyric. well, if it was up to me i'd pick all of "Trying to Throw Your Arms around the World", but especially this one verse:

Nothin' much to say I guess
Just the same as all the rest
Been trying to throw your arms around the world
And a woman needs a man
Like a fish needs a bicycle
When you're tryin' to throw your arms around the world

Sorry, I had all these specific lyrics in mind.....good question though

Goodbye...
You can keep this suit of lights
I'll be up with the sun
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down

I'm not afraid to die
I'm not afraid to live
And when I'm flat on my back
I hope to feel like I did

I'm walkin' down that long, lonesome road, babe
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
But goodbye's too good a word, babe
So I'll just say fare thee well
I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don't mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
But don't think twice, it's all right
-Boby Dylan

Sunrise like a nosebleed
Your head hurts and you can't breathe
You been tryin' to throw you arms around the world
How far you gonna go
Before you lose your way back home
You've been trying to throw your arms
Around the world
(Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World)
--------

No, nothing makes sense
Nothing seems to fit
I know you'd hit out
If you only knew who to hit
And I'd join the movement
If there was one I could believe in
Yeah I'd break bread and wine
If there was a church I could receive in
'cause I need it now

(Acrobat)

--------
And you give yourself away

(With or Without You)

-------

lookin' for to save my soul
lookin' in the places where no flowers grow
lookin' for to fill that GOD shaped hole

(Mofo)

------

you wanted to get somewhere so badly
you had to lose yourself along the way
you change a name but that's okay... it's necessary
and what you leave behind you don't miss anyway

(Gone)

-------

And the greatest thing is, I doubt the way I intepret those lyrics was the way they were written. But I relate to them according to my experiences and so do other people and we all get some sort of comfort from them in our own different ways.

With or Without you is the anthem of my life.



------------------
If you take a drive, I'll tax the street
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat
If you get too cold, I'll tax your heat
If you talk a walk, I'll tax your feet
I'm the taxman!

Don't know why, maybe because of all the people who have come into and left my life, I would have to say:

We turn away to face the cold, enduring chill
As the day begs the night for mercy love
The sun so bright it leaves no shadows
Only scars carved into stone
On the face of earth
The moon is up and over One Tree Hill
We see the sun go down in your eyes

...

And in the world a heart of darkness
A fire zone
Where poets speak their heart
Then bleed for it
Jara sang, his song a weapon
In the hands of love
You know his blood still cries
From the ground

...

I don't believe in painted roses
Or bleeding hearts
While bullets rape the night of the merciful
I'll see you again
When the stars fall from the sky
And the moon has turned red
Over One Tree Hill


My heart just aches when I read those lyrics, or hear that song...

Right about now in my life... well has anyone ever heard the song "For You" by the band Staind?? if not then here's the lyrics.

To my mother, to my father
It's your son or it's your daughter
Are my screams loud enough for you to hear me?
Should I turn this up for you?
Chorus
Cause I sit locked inside my head
Remembering everything you've said
This silence gets us nowhwere
Gets us nowhere way too fast
The silence is what kills me
I need someone here to help me
But you don't know how to listen
And let me make my decisions
Chorus
All your insults and your curses
Make me feel like I'm not a person
And I feel like
I am nothing
But you made me
So do something
Cause I'm fucked up
Because you are
Need attention
Attention you couldn't give

ok i know it was supposed to be just one lyric but...well w/things how they are at home most of the times. First time i ever heard this song I started crying 'coz i felt like this whole song was made just for me.
Oh well there's always a bright spot in dark clouds and it's not everyday that this song is my life. I have you guys my U2 family and my sister kristen, ofcourse i also got my man *GRINZ* to make more happy days than sad days. ok i'm done.
LATERS!!
-Jem- *fear not...for i'll be watching you*

What you don't have you don't ned it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow


you've got to get yourself together, you got stuck in a moment, and you can't get out of it

a vampire or a victim, it depends on who's around

You can tear it up

I was on the outside when you said,
You said you needed me
I was looking at myself
I was blind, I could not see

A boy tries hard to be a man
His mother takes him by his hand
If he stops to think he starts to cry
Oh why

If you walkaway, walkaway
I walkaway, walkaway...
I WILL FOLLOW

From about 1993-2000:

You're looking for the one
But you know you're somewhere else instead
You want to be the song
Be the song that you hear in your head


Now:

So I try to be like you
Try to feel it like you do
But without you it's no use
I can't see what you see
When I look at the world

All I wanna do
Is always bring good to you
To give you all the love I can
And help you in whatever you do

Sure as the sun will come around again to start off another day
You can be sure that in my heart and soul I'll love you in every way

Various parts of my life in the past 5 months or so...I've been listening to Sarah McLachlan lately and a relate to a lot of it:

Hey your glass is empty
it's a hell of a long way home
why don't you let me take you
it's no good to go alone
I never would have opened up
but you seemed so real to me
after all the bullshit I've heard
it's refreshing not to see
I don't have to pretend
she doesn't expect it from me...
-----
so just let me try
and I will be good to you
just let me try
and I will be there for you
I'll show you why
you're so much more than good enough...
-----
I'm ever swiftly moving
Trying to escape this desire
The yearning to be near you
I do what I have to do
-----
Deep within I'm shaken
By the violence of existing
For only you

=====
Jeff Buckley

This is our last goodbye
I hate to feel the love between us die
But it's over
Just hear this and then I'll go
You gave me more to live for
More than you'll ever know
-----
Maybe I'm too young
To keep good love from going wrong
But tonight you're on my mind
So...you never know

=====
Probably all of "It's Probably Me" by Sting
And just recently, "The Space Between" - DMB


(yeah, I've not been in the happiest mood lately...and I could've find just one lyric to describe it all)
