    Default Favorite lyrics, possibly of the song you're listening to right now

    Let's go a step beyond the "what you're listening to right now" thread.


    There is a house in New Orleans
    They call the Rising Sun
    And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
    And God I know I'm one

    My mother was a tailor
    She sewed my new bluejeans
    My father was a gamblin' man
    Down in New Orleans

    Now the only thing a gambler needs
    Is a suitcase and trunk
    And the only time he's satisfied
    Is when he's all drunk

    ------ organ solo ------

    Oh mother tell your children
    Not to do what I have done
    Spend your lives in sin and misery
    In the House of the Rising Sun

    Well, I got one foot on the platform
    The other foot on the train
    I'm goin' back to New Orleans
    To wear that ball and chain

    Well, there is a house in New Orleans
    They call the Rising Sun
    And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
    And God I know I'm one
    "Do not think that I came to bring peace... I did not come to bring peace, but a sword." - Matthew 10:34

    That's easy...Everything, Alanis Morissette

    I can be an asshole of the grandest kind
    I can withhold like it's going out of style
    I can be the moodiest baby and you've never met anyone
    Who is as negative as I am sometimes

    I am the wisest woman you've ever met.
    I am the kindest soul with whom you've connected.
    I have the bravest heart that you've ever seen
    And you've never met anyone
    Who's as positive as I am sometimes.

    You see everything, you see every part
    You see all my light and you love my dark
    You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
    There's not anything to which you can't relate
    And you're still here

    I'm the funniest woman that you've ever known
    I'm the dullest woman that you've ever known
    I'm the most gorgeous woman that you've ever known
    And you've never met anyone
    Who is as everything as I am sometimes

    You see everything, you see every part
    You see all my light and you love my dark
    You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
    There's not anything to which you can't relate
    And you're still here

    A Crazier Song by Alanis Morisette


    "Your House"

    I went to your house
    Walked up the stairs
    I opened your door without ringing the bell
    I walked down the hall
    Into your room
    Where I could smell you
    And I shouldn't be here, without permission
    I shouldn't be here

    Would you forgive me love
    If I danced in your shower
    Would you forgive me love
    If I laid in your bed
    Would you forgive me love
    If I stay all afternoon

    I took off my clothes
    Put on your robe
    I went through your drawers
    And found your cologne
    Went down to the den
    Found your CD's
    And I played your Joni
    And I shouldn't stay long, you might be home soon
    I shouldn't stay long

    Would you forgive me love
    If I danced in your shower
    Would you forgive me love
    If I laid in your bed
    Would you forgive me love
    If I stay all afternoon

    I burned your incense
    I ran a bath
    I noticed a letter that sat on your desk
    It said "Hello love, I love you so love, meet me at midnight"
    And no, it wasn't my writing
    I'd better go soon
    It wasn't my writing

    So forgive me love
    If I cry in your shower
    So forgive me love
    For the salt in your bed
    So forgive me love
    If I cry all afternoon

    "Pictures of You"

    The Cure

    (Most awesome song in history; my fav tune in the last 20 years)



    I've been looking so long at these pictures of
    you that i almost believe that they're real
    I've been living so long with my pictures of you that
    i almost believe that the pictures are all i can feel

    remembering you standing quiet in the rain as
    I ran to your heart to be near and we kissed as
    the sky fell in holding you close how i always
    held close in your fear remembering you
    running soft through the night you were bigger
    and brighter than the snow and
    screamed at the make-believe screamed at the
    sky and you finally found all your courage to
    let it all go

    remembering you fallen into my arms crying
    for the death of your heart you were stone
    white so delicate lost in the cold you were
    always so lost in the dark remembering you
    how you used to be slow drowned you were
    angels so much more than everything oh hold
    for the last time then slip away quietly open
    my eyes but i never see anything

    if only I had thought of the right words I could
    have hold on to your heart if only i'd thought of
    the right words i wouldn't be breaking apart all
    my pictures of you

    Looking So long at these pictures of you but I
    never hold on to your heart looking so long for
    the words to be true but always just breaking
    apart my pictures of you

    there was nothing in the world that i ever
    wanted more than to feel you deep in my heart
    there was nothing in the world that i ever
    wanted more than to never feel the breaking
    apart all my pictures of you


    Greatest. Band. Ever.

    Mother, mother
    There's too many of you crying
    Brother, brother, brother
    There's far too many of you dying
    You know we've got to find a way
    To bring some lovin' here today - Ya

    Father, father
    We don't need to escalate
    You see, war is not the answer
    For only love can conquer hate
    You know we've got to find a way
    To bring some lovin' here today

    Picket lines and picket signs
    Don't punish me with brutality
    Talk to me, so you can see
    Oh, what's going on
    What's going on
    Ya, what's going on
    Ah, what's going on

    In the mean time
    Right on, baby
    Right on
    Right on

    Father, father, everybody thinks we're wrong
    Oh, but who are they to judge us
    Simply because our hair is long
    Oh, you know we've got to find a way
    To bring some understanding here today
    Oh

    Picket lines and picket signs
    Don't punish me with brutality
    Talk to me
    So you can see
    What's going on
    Ya, what's going on
    Tell me what's going on
    I'll tell you what's going on - Uh
    Right on baby
    Right on baby

    Los Lonely Boys
    Album: Sacred
    Title: My Way


    I don't need no fortune
    I don't need no fame
    That's all just an illusion
    To me it don't mean a thing

    You can try and deceive me
    But I see right through your skin
    And what you're trying to tell me
    Is something I don't believe in

    Don't tell me how to live my life
    Don't tell me how to pray
    Don't tell me how to sing my song
    Don't tell me what to say

    Cuz I believe that miracles
    happen every day
    I don't care what you say,
    I'm gonna do it my way

    You say you have all the answers
    And I should do it your way
    How many times do I have to tell you
    I ain't no puppet on a string
    Listen to me...

    Don't tell me how to live my life
    Don't tell me how to pray
    Don't tell me how to sing my song
    Don't tell me what to say
    Cuz I believe that miracles
    happen every day
    I don't care what you say,
    I'm gonna do it my way
    I'm gonna do it my way
    What'd you say

    Water's Rambler
    -Bean Soup

    Joey's got me runnin' out of steam
    Wishin I was sleepin', just havin a bad dream
    But I still have my friend
    And when it all comes down
    Maybe its not as hard as it seems.

    Joey says she's tired of who I am
    Uncaring and a heavy drinkin man
    If only I'd knew
    What I learned since then
    We might have had a chance

    Baby Baby please come home
    Baby Baby without you I feel so alone

    So it seems that Joey's movin on
    Its far too late for me to try to right all my wrongs
    Alls I can do is
    Remember all the times
    She stayed with me for so long

    Baby Baby please don't go
    Baby Baby without you I'm so alone
    Baby Baby please come home
    Baby Baby I don't wanna be left alone

    Joey's got me runnin out of steam.

    THE WHITE STRIPES LYRICS

    "The Denial Twist"

    If you think that a kiss is all in the lips
    C'mon, you got it all wrong, man
    And if you think that our dance was all in the hips
    Oh well, then do the twist
    If you think holding hands is all in the fingers
    Grab hold of the soul where the memory lingers and
    Make sure to never do it with the singer
    'Cause he'll tell everyone in the world

    What he was thinking about the girl
    Ya, what he's thinking about the girl, oh

    A lot of people get confused and they bruise
    Real easy when it comes to love
    They start putting on their shoes and walking out
    And singing "boy, I think I had enough"

    Just because she makes a big rumpus
    She don't mean to be mean or hurt you on purpose, boy
    Take a tip and do yourself a little service
    Take a mountain turn it into a mole

    Just by playing a different role
    Ya, by playing a different role, oh

    The boat ya you know she's rockin' it
    And the truth well ya know there's no stoppin' it

    The boat ya you know she's still rockin' it
    The truth well you know there's no stoppin' it

    So what, somebody left you in a rut
    And wants to be the one who's in control
    But the feeling that you're under can really make you wonder
    How the hell she can be so cold

    So now you're mad, denying the truth
    And it's hidden in the wisdom in the back of your tooth
    Ya need ta spit it out, in a telephone booth
    While ya call everyone that you know, and ask 'em

    Where do you think she goes
    Oh ya, where d'ya suppose she goes, oh

    The truth well you know there's no stoppin' it
    And the boat well ya know she's still rockin' it

    The boat ya you know she's still rockin' it
    And the truth ya you know there's no stoppin' it

    You recognize with your back in the back?
    That it's colder when she rocks the boat
    But it's the cause hittin on the Cardinal Laws?
    'bout the proper place to hang her coat

    So to you, the truth is still hidden
    And the soul plays the role of a lost little kitten but
    You should know that the doctors weren't kiddin?
    She's been singing it all along

    But you were hearin' a different song
    Ya you were hearin' a different song
    But you were hearin' a different song

    Best version of it. I can play and sing it on guitar.

    Maybe I release it as the next "Best song of the new millenium".

    No, you quoted my post, and pasted the white stripes video below it. I thought you were trying to say something about my lyrics and that song, that they were related in some way, but I really didn't get it. And there was no sense to be had!

    LOL. Settle yourself down. With a little smarts, you could have solved the riddle on your own.

    Godsmack - Serenity

    As I sit here and slowly close my eyes
    I take another deep breath
    And feel the wind pass through my body
    I'm the one in your soul
    Reflecting inner light
    Protect the ones who hold you
    Cradling your inner child

    I need serenity
    In a place where I can hide
    I need serenity
    Nothing changes, days go by


    Where do we go when we just don't know
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
    And when will we learn to control

    Tragic visions slowly stole my life
    Tore away everything
    Cheating me out of my time
    I'm the one who loves you
    No matter wrong or right
    And every day I hold you
    I hold you with my inner child


    I need serenity
    In a place where I can hide
    I need serenity
    Nothing changes, days go by

    Where do we go when we just don't know
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
    And when will we learn to control

    Where do we go when we just don't know
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
    And when will we learn to control

    I need serenity [x2]
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha
