I guess you really did it this time
Left yourself in your warpath
Lost your balance on a tightrope
Lost your mind tryin' to get it back

Wasn't it easier in your lunchbox days?
Always a bigger bed to crawl into
Wasn't it beautiful when you believed in everything?
And everybody believed in you?

It's all right, just wait and see
Your string of lights is still bright to me
Oh, who you are is not where you've been
You're still an innocent
You're still an innocent

There's some things you can't speak of
But tonight you'll live it all again
You wouldn't be shattered on the floor now
If only you would sing what you know now then

Wasn't it easier in your firefly-catchin' days?
And everything out of reach, someone bigger brought down to you
Wasn't it beautiful runnin' wild 'til you fell asleep?
Before the monsters caught up to you?

It's all right, just wait and see
Your string of lights is still bright to me
Oh, who you are is not where you've been
You're still an innocent

It's okay, life is a tough crowd
32, and still growin' up now
Who you are is not what you did
You're still an innocent

Time turns flames to embers
You'll have new Septembers
Every one of us has messed up too

Lives change like the weather
I hope you remember
Today is never to late to
Be brand new

It's all right, just wait and see
Your string of lights are still bright to me
Oh, who you are is not where you've been
You're still an innocent

It's okay, life is a tough crowd
32, and still growin' up now
Who you are is not what you did
You're still an innocent

If you're standing with your suitcase
But you can't step on the train
Everything's the way that you left it I still haven't slept yet

And if you're covering your face now
But you just can't hide the pain
Still setting two plates on the counter but eating without 'cha

If the truth is you're a liar
When you say that you're okay
I'm sleepin on your side of the bed goin' out of my head now

And if you're out there try'na move on
But somethin' pulls you back again
I'm sitting here try'na persuade you like your in the same room

And I wish you could give me the cold shoulder
And I wish you could still give me a hard time
And I wish I could still wish it was over
But even if wishing is a waste of time
Even if I never cross your mind

I'll leave the door on the latch
If you ever come back if you ever come back
There'll be a light in the hall and a key under the mat
If you ever come back
There'll be a smile on my face and the kettle on
And it will be just like you were never gone
There'll be a light in the hall and a key under the mat
If you ever come back if you ever come back now
Oh if you ever come back if you ever come back now

Now they say I'm wasting my time
'Cause you're never coming home
But they used to say the world was flat but how wrong was that now

And by leavin' my door open
I'm risking everythin' I own
There's nothin' I can lose in a break-in that you haven't taken

And I wish you could give me the cold shoulder
And I wish you can still give me a hard time
And I wish I could still wish it was over
But even if wishing is a waste of time
Even if I never cross your mind

I'll leave the door on the latch
If you ever come back if you ever come back
There'll be a light in the hall and a key under the mat
If you ever come back
There'll be a smile on my face and the kettle on
And it will be just like you were never gone
There'll be a light in the hall and a key under the mat
If you ever come back if you ever come back now
Oh if you ever come back if you ever come back now

If it's the fighting you remember or the little things you miss
I know you're out there somewhere so just remember this
If it's the fighting you remember or the little things you miss
Oh just remember this, oh just remember this

I'll leave the door on the latch
If you ever come back if you ever come back
There'll be a light in the hall and a key under the mat
If you ever come back
There'll be a smile on my face and the kettle on
And it will be just like you were never gone
There'll be a light in the hall and a key under the mat
If you ever come back if you ever come back now
Oh if you ever come back if you ever come back now

And it will be just like you were never gone
And it will be just like you were never gone
And it will be just like you were never gone
If you ever come back if you ever come back now

fight like apes - i'm beginning to think you prefer 90210 to me

Dear Samuel,
You've been employed by the band,
You were originally employed
just to give us a hand.
And now you single-handedly
destroyed our careers.
So here's our gift to you, Samuel,
have a happy new year:

You're fired
you're fired
you're fired
you're firrred!

Dear Gladstone,
we've had a good year.
So here's a gift from the band, my dear.
So go on, blow out the candles
and leave the cake behind.
And get the hell outta here, Gladstone.
When you get, home, you'll find...

You've been fired!
You've been fired!
You've been fired!
You've been firrrrred!
So long!

Dear apes,
It wasn't that bad.
I've got a family:
Two dogs, and a dad.
So I ask you sincerely,
What it is I've done wrong
Thanks for the verse, though
in this excellent song...

Mary had a little lamb
and it got fired.

Little Bo' Peep, she lost her sheep
'cause it got fired.

Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the garden wall,
'cause it got fired.

Humpty Dumpty had a bad fall
And he got fired!

You're so fired,
you're so fired!
You're so fired,
you're so fired!
You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don't
owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to
put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission,
don't even start asking for theirs.

"All Hail" by The Devil Makes Three

Come on down to where those tracks cross high street
you gonna watch the whole world go insane!

See the lighters hit the rocks in the bushes
like the stars are comin' down like rain!

Here she comes,
just a skin and bones skeleton,
she's food for the crack cocaine...

She got a baby
livin' right outside the city,
man she don't even remember his name...

Well, his name is Adolf Hitler Albert Einstein Jesse James.

All hail!
All hail!
To the greatest of sales:
everything insides got to be sold.
All hail!
All hail!
Is to work or do jail
man they're closin' them doors on the world.

Laugh if you want to,
really is kinda funny,
'cause the world is a car
and you're the crash test dummy.

Earth stampedin' now,
fences gone,
television is always on
and it says:
"Save the children, but drop the bomb".
Replace the word right now
with the word wrong.
Hey there's a big sale on Tuesday,
get it before it's gone.
Get a picture with the Four Horsemen
for a nominal sum.
Now that they got everything
they'd like to sell you some.

All hail!
All hail!
To the greatest of sales:
'cause everything inside got to be sold.
All hail!
All hail!
'Cause it's to work or do jail
man they're closin' their doors on the world

Take this pill now,
put it on your tongue.
Keep you actin'
just like everyone.
Keeps you from feelin'
good, bad, ugly, crazy, dumb.
It ain't a drug goddammit,
I'd give it to my only son!
Well no one's gonna get arrested,
no one's havin' any fun.
Doctors orders: "Ya feel yer heart beatin'?
Go ahead and take ya one."
Now yer dumber than a singin' saw
playin "Uncomfortably Numb".
It's a Thorazine work party
with free Fluoride bubble gum.
Now you wander like a zombie
out in the midday sun...

All hail!
All hail!
To the greatest of sales:
Everything you've got's got to be sold.
All hail!
All hail!
'Cause it's to work or do jail
man they're closin' them doors
yea they're closin' them doors
yea they're closin' them doors on the world.

The Mountain Goats - Up the Wolves

there's bound to be a ghost at the back of your closet
no matter where you live.
there'll always be a few things, maybe several things
that you're going to find really difficult to forgive.

there's going to come a day when you feel better.
you'll rise up free and easy on that day.
and float from branch to branch,
lighter than the air.
just when that day is coming, who can say? who can say?

our mother has been absent ever since we founded rome.
but there's going to be a party when the wolf comes home.

were going to commandeer the local airwaves
to tell the neighbours whats been going on.
and they will shake their heads and wag their bony fingers
in all the wrong directions,
and by daybreak we'll be gone.

I'm going to get myself in fighting trim,
scope out every angle of unfair advantage.
I'm going to bribe the officials.
I'm going to kill all the judges.
it's going to take you people years to recover from all of the damage.

our mother has been absent ever since we founded rome.
but there's going to be a party when the wolf comes home.

go!

Falco - Jeanny

Jeanny, komm, come on
Steh auf bitte
Du wirst ganz nass
Schon spät, komm
Wir müssen weg hier
Raus aus dem Wald
Verstehst du nicht?
Wo ist dein Schuh
Du hast ihn verloren,
Als ich dir den Weg zeigen musste
Wer hat verloren?
Du, dich?
Ich mich?
Oder
Wir uns?

Jeanny, quit livin' on dreams
Jeanny, life is not what it seems
Such a lonely little girl in a cold, cold world
There's someone who needs you
Jeanny, quit livin' on dreams
Jeanny, life is not what it seems
You're lost in the night
Don't wanna struggle and fight
There's someone who needs you

Es ist kalt
Wir müssen weg hier,
Komm.
Dein Lippenstift ist verwischt
Du hast ihn gekauft und
Und ich habe es gesehen
Zuviel Rot auf deinen Lippen
Und du hast gesagt "mach mich nicht an"
Aber du warst durchschaut.
Augen sagen mehr als Worte
Du brauchst mich doch, hmmmh?
Alle wissen, dass wir zusammen sind
Ab heute
Jetzt hör ich sie!
Sie kommen!
Sie kommen dich zu holen.
Sie werden dich nicht finden.
Niemand wird dich finden!!
Du bist bei mir.

Jeanny, quit livin' on dreams
Jeanny, life is not what it seems
Such a lonely little girl in a cold, cold world
There's someone who needs you
Jeanny, quit livin' on dreams
Jeanny, life is not what it seems
You're lost in the night
Don't wanna struggle and fight
There's someone who needs you

Newsflash:
in den letzten monaten ist die zahl
der vermissten personen dramatisch angestiegen
die jüngste veröffentlichung der lokalen polizei-
behörde berichtet von einem weiteren tragischen fall.
es handelt sich um ein neunzehnjähriges mädchen,
das zuletzt vor vierzehn tagen gesehen wurde.
die polizei schliesst die möglichkeit nicht aus, dass es
sich hier um ein verbrechen handelt.

Jeanny, quit livin' on dreams
Jeanny, life is not what it seems
Such a lonely little girl in a cold, cold world
There's someone who needs you
Jeanny, quit livin' on dreams
Jeanny, life is not what it seems
You're lost in the night
Don't wanna struggle and fight

Wow.
It doesn't matter who we were... It only matters who we are.

Life sucks, and then you die. And then it still sucks.

John Mayer, huh?

Dear John (Mayer) - Taylor Swift :D :P

Long were the nights
When the days once revolved around you
Counting my footsteps,
Prayin’ the floor won’t fall through, again
My mother accused me of losing my mind
But I swore I was fine

You paint me a blue sky and go back
And turn it to rain
And I lived in your chess game
But you changed the rules every day
Wonderin which version of you
I might get on the phone, tonight,
Well I stopped pickin’ up
And this song is to let you know why

Dear John,
I see it all now that you’re gone.
Don’t you think I was too young
To be messed with
The girl in the dress
Cried the whole way home
I shoulda known.

Well maybe it’s me
And my blind optimism to blame
Maybe its you and your sick need
To give love then take it away
And you’ll add my name
To your long list of traitors
Who don’t understand
And I’ll look back in regret
How I ignored when they said
Run as fast as you can

Dear John,
I see all it now that you’re gone
Don’t you think I was too young
To be messed with
The girl in the dress
Cried the whole way home

Dear John,
I see it all now it was wrong
Don’t you think nineteen’s too young
To be played by your dark twisted games
When I loved you so
I shoulda known

You are an expert at sorry
And keeping lines blurry
And never impressed by me
Acing your tests
All the girls that you run dry
Have tired lifeless eyes
Cuz you burned them out
But I took your matches
Before fire could catch me
So don’t look now
I’m shining like fireworks
Over your sad empty town

Oh woah oh

Dear John,
I see all it now that you’re gone
Don’t you think I was too young
To be messed with the girl in the dress
Cried the whole way home
I see all it now that you’re gone
Don’t you think I was too young
To be messed with
The girl in the dress
Wrote you a song
You should’ve known
You shoulda known
Don’t you think I was too young
You shoulda known.

And she won't be surprised and she won't be shocked
When she's pressed the star after she's pressed unlock
And there's verse and chapter sat in her inbox
And all that it says is that you've drank a lot

This has been my favourite song for almost a month now, which is a new record for me:

Poke - Frightened Rabbit

Poke at my iris, why can't I cry about this?
Maybe there is something that you know that I don't?
We adopt a brand new language, communicate through pursed lips,
and you try not to put on any sexy clothes or graces.

I might never catch a mouse and present it in my mouth
and make you feel you're with someone who deserves to be with you.
But there's one thing we've got going and it's the only thing worth knowing,
it's got lots to do with magnets and the pull of the moon.

Why won't our love keel over as it chokes on a bone?
We can mourn its passing and then bury it in snow.
Or should we kick its **** in and watch as it dies from bleeding?
If you don't want to be with me just say and I will go.

Well we can change our partners this is a progressive dance,
but remember it was me who dragged you up to the sweaty floor.
Well this has been a real
I've got shin-splints and a stitch from weed
but like a drunken night it's the best bits that are coloured in

Should look through some old photos I adored you in every one of those.
If someone took a picture of us now they'd need to be told
that we had ever clung on tight and maybe not with arms at night.
I'd say she was his sister but she doesn't have his nose.

And now we're unrelated and rid of all the **** we hated,
but I hate when I feel like this and I never hated you.

Eminem - Space Bound .. I just love this part of the song.

I'll do whatever it takes, when I'm with you, I get the shakes
My body aches when I ain't with you, I have zero strength
There's no limit on how far I would go, no boundaries, no lengths
Why do we say that until we get that person that we think's
Gonna be that one and then once we get 'em, it's never the same
You want 'em when they don't want you, soon as they do, feelin's change
It's not a contest and I ain't on no conquest for no mate
I wasn't lookin' when I stumbled onto you, musta been fate
But so much is at stake, what the f*** does it take, let's cut to the chase
'Fore the door shuts in your face, promise me if I cave in and break
And leave myself open that I won't be makin' a mistake
Cause

I'm a space-bound rocketship and your heart's the moon
And I'm aimin' right at you
Right at you
250, 000 miles on a clear night in June
And I'm aimin' right at you
Right at you
Right at you

So after a year and 6 months, it's no longer me that you want
But I love you so much it hurts, never mistreated you once
I poured my heart out to you, let down my guard, swear to God
I'll blow my brains in your lap, lay here and die in your arms
Drop to my knees and I'm pleadin', I'm tryin' to stop you from leavin'
You won't even listen, so f*** it, I'm tryin' to stop you from breathin'
I put both hands on your throat, I sit on top of you, squeezin'
Til' I snap your neck like a Popsicle stick, ain't a possible reason
I can think of to let you walk up out this house and let you live
Tears stream down both of my cheeks, then I let you go and just give
And before I put that gun to my temple, I told you this


And I would've did anything for you
To show you how much I adored you
But it's over now, it's too late to save our
Love
Just promise me you'll think of me
Every time you look up in the sky and see a star
Cuz I'm a

A space-bound rocketship and your heart's the moon
And I'm aimin' right at you
Right at you
250, 000 miles on a clear night in June
And I'm aimin' right at you
Right at you
Right at you
