Lyrics

Poetry put to music, some are better then others, but what are the lyrics to your favorite (and please don't limit that to one. I have more favorite songs than the day has hours) songs ?


I'll start with one that I really really like and I think fits this forum :)


Dangerous Game - Jekyll and Hyde

Lucy:
I feel your fingers cold on my shoulder
Your chilling touch, as it runs down my spine
Watching your eyes as they invade my soul
Forbidden pleasures I'm afraid to make mine.

At the touch of your hand
At the sound of your voice
At the moment your eyes meet mine
I am out of my mind
I am out of control
Full of feelings I can't define

Hyde: It's a sin with a name
Lucy: Like a hand in a flame
Hyde: And our senses proclaim
Hyde/Lucy: It's a dangerous game

Hyde:
A darker dream, that has no ending
That's so unreal you believe that it's true
A dance of death out of a mystery tale
The frightened princess doesn't know what to do

Will the ghosts go away?
Will she will them to stay?
Either way, there's no way to win

Lucy:
All I know is' I'm lost
And I'm counting the cost
My emotions are in a spin
I don't know who to blame...

Hyde: It's a crime and a shame
Lucy: but it's true all the same
Hyde/Lucy: It's a dangerous game

(Alternating)
No one speaks, not one word
But what words are in our eyes
Silence speaks, loud and clear
All the words we (don't) want to hear

At the touch of your hand
At the sound of your voice
At the moment your eyes meet mine

I am losing my mind
I am losing control
Fighting feelings I can't define

Lucy: It's a sin with a name-
Hyde: No remorse and no shame
              Fire, fury and flame
Lucy: Cos the devil's to blame

Hyde/Lucy:
And the angels proclaim
It's a dangerous game

Lots and lots of favourites. . .  but this is where it all starts:

Broken - Seether featuring Amy Lee

I wanted you to know I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph; I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

'Cause I’m broken when I'm open
And I don't feel like I am strong enough
'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

The worst is over now and we can breathe again
I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away
There's so much left to learn, and no one left to fight
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

'Cause I'm broken when I'm open
And I don't feel like I am strong enough
'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

I'm not that Girl - Idina Menzel (from 'Wicked')

Hands touch, eyes meet
Sudden silence, sudden heat
Hearts leap in a giddy whirl
He could be that boy
But I'm not that girl

Don't dream too far
Don't lose sight of who you are
Don't remember that rush of joy
He could be that boy
I'm not that girl

Ev'ry so often we long to steal
To the land of what-might-have-been
But that doesn't soften the ache we feel
When reality sets back in

Blithe smile, lithe limb
She who's winsome, she wins him
Gold hair with a gentle curl
That's the girl he chose
And Heaven knows
I'm not that girl

Don't wish, don't start
Wishing only wounds the heart
I wasn't born for the rose and the pearl
There's a girl I know
He loves her so
I'm not that girl...

Kosheen - Overkill

(Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth…)
 
Is it over now
Over something that you overheard
Is it over dramatised
Overcomplicated over here
All your clever talk
Leaves you tongue tied
It's overkill
 
You wanna fix it
With your hands tied
You never will
 
I don't wanna play this game no more
Back and forth and back
Is it over now
So tell me how does it feel
Ah is it over now
Oh you'll get over me
Oh you'll get over me
 
Take it easy now
Don't wanna change a thing
Don't want my dirty little feet all over everything
I took my shoes off
So I wouldn't tread
Over the clean sheets wrapped around that dirty bed
Oh believe me
If I wanted to baby I would bury you
I keep my hands clean
Keep my dignity
I leave it all to you
 
I don't wanna play this game no more
Back and forth and back
Is it over now
So tell me how does it feel
Ah is it over now
Oh you'll get over me
 
(Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth…)
 
I don't wanna play this game no more
Back and forth and back
Is it over now
So tell me how does it feel
Ah is it over now
Oh you'll get over me
 
(Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth…)

This song is a bit obscure I am sure. I'm sorry for that, but it sets my moods quite often.
I love to sit and just listen to this song.

This youtube link has english subtitles. I don't quite agree with all of the translation but I'm not about to redo it :)
Le Plat Pays - Jacques Brelpowered by Aeva


Avec la mer du Nord pour dernier terrain vague
Et des vagues de dunes pour arrêter les vagues
Et de vagues rochers que les marées dépassent
Et qui ont à jamais le cœur à marée basse
Avec infiniment de brumes à venir
Avec le vent de l'est écoutez-le tenir
Le plat pays qui est le mien

Avec des cathédrales pour uniques montagnes
Et de noirs clochers comme mâts de cocagne
Où des diables en pierre décrochent les nuages
Avec le fil des jours pour unique voyage
Et des chemins de pluie pour unique bonsoir
Avec le vent d'ouest écoutez-le vouloir
Le plat pays qui est le mien

Avec un ciel si bas qu'un canal s'est perdu
Avec un ciel si bas qu'il fait l'humilité
Avec un ciel si gris qu'un canal s'est pendu
Avec un ciel si gris qu'il faut lui pardonner
Avec le vent du nord qui vient s'écarteler
Avec le vent du nord écoutez-le craquer
Le plat pays qui est le mien

Avec de l'Italie qui descendrait l'Escaut
Avec Frida la Blonde quand elle devient Margot
Quand les fils de novembre nous reviennent en mai
Quand la plaine est fumante et tremble sous juillet
Quand le vent est au rire, quand le vent est au blé
Quand le vent est au sud, écoutez-le chanter
Le plat pays qui est le mien.

In the Air Tonight - Phil Collins

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord
Ive been waiting for this moment, all my life, oh lord
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord, oh lord

Well, if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
Ive seen your face before my friend
But I dont know if you know who I am
Well, I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off the grin, I know where youve been
Its all been a pack of lies

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord
Ive been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh lord, oh lord
And Ive been waiting for this moment all my life, oh lord, oh lord

Well I remember, I remember dont worry
How could I ever forget, its the first time, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, no you dont fool me
The hurt doesnt show; but the pain still grows
Its no stranger to you or me

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord...

O.A.R. (Of A Revolution) Shattered

In a way, I need a change
From this burnout scene
Another time, another town
Another everything
But it's always back to you

Stumble out, in the night
From the pouring rain
Made the block, sat and thought
There's more I need
It's always back to you

But I'm good without ya
Yeah, I'm good without you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can't define what I'm after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break let me make my own pattern
All that it takes is some time but I'm shattered
I always turn the car around

I had no idea that the night
Would take so damn long
Took it out, on the street
While the rain still falls
Push me back to you

But I'm good without ya
Yeah, I'm good without you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can't define what I'm after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break let me make my own pattern
All that it takes is some time but I'm shattered
I always turn the car around

Give it up, give it up, baby
Give it up, give it up, now
Now

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can't define what I'm after
I always turn the car around
All that I feel is the realness I'm faking
Taking my time but it's time that I'm wasting
Always turn the car around

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can't define what I'm after
I always turn the car around

Don't wanna turn that car around
I gotta turn this thing around

Sober, by Pink

I don't wanna be the girl who laughs the loudest
Or the girl who never wants to be alone
I don't wanna be that call at four o'clock in the morning
'Cause I'm the only one you know in the world that won't be home

Aahh, the sun is blinding
I stayed up again
Oohh, I am finding
That's not the way I want my story to end
I'm safe
Up high
Nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party's over?
No pain
Inside
You're my protection
But how do I feel this good sober?

I don't wanna be the girl who has to fill the silence...
The quiet scares me 'cause it screams the truth
Please don't tell me that we had that conversation
When I won't remember, save your breath, 'cause what's the use?

Aahh, the night is calling
And it whispers to me softly, "come and play"
Aahh, I am falling
And if I let myself go, I'm the only one to blame

I'm safe
Up high
Nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party's over?
No pain
Inside
You're like perfection
But how do I feel this good sober?

I'm comin' down
Comin' down
Comin' down
Spinnin' round
Spinnin' round
Spinnin' round
Looking for myself.. Sober

Comin' down
Comin' down
Comin' down
Spinnin' round
Spinnin' round
Spinnin' round
Looking for myself.. Sober

When it's good, then it's good, it's so good, 'till it goes bad
Till you're trying to find the you that you once had
I have heard myself cry
Never again
Broken down in agony
And just trying to find a friend

I'm safe
Up high
Nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party's over?
No pain
Inside
You're like perfection
But how do I feel this good sober?

I'm safe
Up high
Nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party's over?
No pain
Inside
You're like perfection
But how do I feel this good sober?

How do I feel this good sober?

A Gentleman's Excuse Me - Fishpowered by Aeva


Do you still keep paper flowers
in the bottom drawer with your Belgian lace
taking them out every year to watch the colors fade away?

Do you still believe in fairy tales,
in battlements of shining castles
Safe from the dragons that lie beneath the hill?

Are you still a Russian princess
rescued by a gypsy dancer
To anyone who'll listen is that a story you tell?

You live a life of fantasy, your diary romantic fiction.
Can't you see it's hard for me, can you see what I am trying to say?
It's a gentleman's excuse me so I'll take on step to the side.
Can you get it in your head I'm tired of dancing?
For every one step forward we're taking two steps back.
Can you get it in your head I'm tired of dancing?

I know you still like old fashioned waltzes
Your reflection in the mirror that you flirt with
as you glide across the floor.

But if I told you the music's over would you want to hear
That your dance card is empty that there's no-one really there?

Do you still believe in Santa Claus,
that there's a millionaire looking at your front door
with a key to a life that you'd never understand?

All I have to offer is the love that I have, it's freely given
You'll see it's value when you see what I've tried to say.

It's a gentleman's excuse me so I'll take on step to the side.
Can you get it in your head I'm tired of dancing?
For every one step forward I'm taking two steps back.
Can you get it in your head that
from this one step forward there's no turning back?
Can you get it in your head I'm tired of dancing?
We're finished dancing.

When you're a long way from the old familiar mine or mountain, when you're lost among strangers, when you're just a great big aching nothingness inside… only then can you really sing hole. (Terry Pratchett, Soul Music)

This is singing hole for me right now. Don't ask why.

Keane - Spiralling

I'm waiting for my moment to come
I'm waiting for the movie to begin
I'm waiting for a revelation
I'm waiting for someone to count me in

'Cause now I only see my dreams
In everything I touch
Feel their cold hands
On everything that I love
Cold like some
Magnificent skyline
Out of my reach
But always in my eyeline now

We're tumbling down
We're spiralling
Tied up to the ground
We're spiralling

I fashioned you from jewels and stone
I made you in the image of myself
I gave you everything you wanted
So you would never know anything else

But every time I reach for you
You slip through my fingers
Into cold sunlight
Laughing at the things that
I had planned
The map of my world gets
Smaller as I sit here
Pulling at the loose threads now

We're tumbling down
We're spiralling
Tied up to the ground
We're spiralling

Did you wanna be a winner?
Did you wanna be an icon?
Did you wanna be famous?
Did you wanna be the president?
Did you wanna start a war?
Did you wanna have a family?
Did you wanna be in love?
Did you wanna be in love?

When we fall in love
We're just falling
In love with ourselves
We're spiralling
We're tumbling down
We're spiralling
Tied up to the ground
We're spiralling
