    For whatever reason..

    One of mine would have to be; 'and I fell, right into the arms of Venus De Milo' from Television's Venus, which is one of my favourite songs.

    I'll probably add more as and when they come to me.

    So what're yours?

    "But what I do know, is to us the world is different, as we are to the world, but I guess you would know that." Illusion- VNV Nation

    "The book of love has music in it,
    In fact, that's where music comes from,
    Some of it's just transcendental,
    Some of it's just really dumb.
    But I, I love it when you sing to me,
    And you, you can sing me anything."
    The Book of Love- Peter Gabriel

    "All that we share is our struggle for silence."- Spaceape, Spaceape

    "That’s all we need know
    To synchronise. To love
    To the beat of the show." -Transmission, Joy Division

    "You know once I had a true love
    Lord, her age was just 16.
    She was the flower of Belton
    And the Rose of Aberdeen.
    But her parents did not like me
    And now she feels much the same
    If I’m written in your diary
    Well, blot out my name.
    For there’s changes in the ocean
    And there’s changes in the sea
    And there’s changes in my one true love
    But there ain’t no change in me." -Rose of Aberdeen[B], Simon & Garfunkel

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made.
    And the sign flashed out its warning
    In the words that it was forming.
    And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written
    On the subway walls and tenement halls."
    And whispered in the sounds of silence. --Sound of Silence, Simon & Garfunkel

    "I never sleep
    Because sleep is the cousin of death."- NY State of Mind, Nas

    "The buildings tumbled in on themselves. Mothers clutching babies picked through the rubble and pulled out their hair. The skyline was beautiful on fire
    All twisted metal stretching upwards
    Everything washed in a thin orange haze.
    I said, "Kiss me, you're beautiful.
    These are truly the last days."
    You grabbed my hand and we fell into it, like a daydream
    Or a fever. We woke up one morning and fell a little further down
    For sure it's the valley of death.
    I open up my wallet
    And it is full of blood."- Dead Flag Blues], Godspeed You! Black Emperor

    I should set the steel trap of your thighs and dive right in. -Despite What You’ve Been Told], Two Gallants

    And when they kiss they spit white noise. -First Night, The Hold Steady

    Sweet taste of sin.
    Everything I’ve seen
    Made me everything I am. -Pray, Jay-Z

    “Don’t you know? They’re
    Talking about a revolution. Sounds
    Like a whisper.” -Talkin’ Bout A Revolution, Tracy Chapman

    “Dead in the middle of little Italy little did we know
    That we riddled some middlemen who didn’t do diddly”- -Twinz (Deep Cover ’98), Fat Joe and Big Pun

    My every move is a calculated step to bring me closer
    To embracing early death. Now, there’s nothing left.
    There was no mercy on the streets. I couldn’t rest.
    I’m barely standing, about to go to pieces, screaming
    “peace.” -So Many Tears, 2Pac

    "I can still remember when your city smelled exciting.
    I still get a whiff of that aroma now and then." - Calm Like You by The Last Shadow Puppets

    "Half a moon, half a man
    Have this sun and have this land
    But mind the blood there on your hand
    I heard you have a tricky kiss
    Adumbrate the lovers that penetrate your lips" - Half a Moon by Crystal Stilts

    It's our problem freeeeee, philosophyyyyyyy, Hakuna Matataaaaaa :u:

    Going Underground by The Jam "some people might say my life is in a rut, but i'm quite happy with what i've got" and the rest of the song too tbh!

    All my motives and every single narrative below reflects
    that moment when it broke and will I never let it go
    No matter what? Now I am throwing all the shards away,
    discarding every fragment, and fumbling uncertain towards a Curtain call
    that no one wants to happen,
    that no ones going to clap for at all, but that still has to be.

    La Dispute - A Broken Jar

    I breathed your name into the air; I etched your name into me.
    I felt my anger swelling; I swam into its sea.
    I held your name inside my heart, but it got buried in my fear.
    It tore the wiring of my brain; I did my best to keep it clear.
    So, dear, no matter how we part, I hold you sweetly in my head.
    And if I do not miss a part of you, a part of me is dead.
    If I can't love you as a lover, I will love you as a friend.
    And I will lay a bed before you; keep you safe until the end.

    La Dispute - Andria

    It's here for us to admire if we can afford the beauty of it
    Can afford the luxury of turning our heads
    Adjust that thousand dollars smile and behold the creation of man
    Great words won't cover ugly actions - good frames won't save bad paintings

    Refused - New Noise

    Thanks for all the posts so far guys, keep them coming!

    "is love really real and can any of us hope for redemption? Or are we all merely biding our time down to lonely conclusions?" frank turner - redemption

    I absolutely love this from Muse:

    "During the struggle
    They will pull us down
    But please, please
    Let's use this chance
    To turn things around
    And tonight
    We can truly say
    Together we're invincible"

    It'sjust such a touching thought to imagine that in a relationship and no matter who tries stopping you you both manage to work through it together.

    "One look sends it coursing through the veins oh how the feeling races
    Back up to their brains to form expressions on there stupid faces
    They don't want to say hello
    Like I want to say hello
    Oh the heartbeats at its peak when you're coming up to speak"

    Sums it up pretty well from the Arctic Monkeys in a more literal sense and realistic one. It really makes me laugh becuase their lyrics are how I imagine I'd write songs, as I see it like they do. When he's talking about how all the lads at a club look so stupid staring at girls and think they're onto something when they're even glanced at.

    Tbh I could go on all night, I love so many lyrics. I'll find some more as I listen :P

    Demi Lovato - Skyscraper:
    "go and try to tear me down, I will be rising from the ground like a skyscraper

    Coldplay - Fix you:
    "lights will guide you home and ignite your bones, and i will try to fix you"

    The Killers - When You Were Young:
    "They say the devil's water it ain't so sweet
    You don't have to drink right now, but you can dip your feet every once in a little while"

    "Ridicule is nothing to be scared of" - Prince Charming, by the great Adam Ant.

    "To say it's love would be too simple, too obvious. It's more like a calling, a vocation, something I was put on this earth to do. Now I'm shooting with the stars and I'm flying with the angels and my heartbeat is a symphony, the closer I get to you" - If I Can't Have You, Meat Loaf

    "'Cos love's such an old fashioned word and love dares you to care for the people on the edge of the night and love changes our way of caring about ourselves. This is our last dance. This is ourselves" - Under Pressure, Queen

    "I'll be there 'til the stars don't shine, 'til the heavens burst and the words don't rhyme. I know when I die, you'll be on my mind and I'll love you. Always" Always - Bon Jovi

    So many more. Lyrics are my absolute favourite things <3

    Oh also - "I started swearing to my God and on my mother's grave that I would love you 'til the end of time. I swore I'd love you 'til the end of time...So now I'm praying for the end of time to hurry up and arrive, cos if I gotta spend another minute with you I don't think that I could really survive...Praying for the end of time is all that I can do. Praying for the end of time so I can end my time with you" - Paradise By the Dashboard Light, Meat Loaf

    "The truth is
    You could slit my throat
    And with my one last gasping breath
    I'd apologize for bleeding on your shirt."

    You're So Last Summer by Taking Back Sunday. Touching, in a slightly graphic way.

    EDIT: Oh, and also the whole of Nicest Thing by Kate Nash. Sums up everything!

    Look, some ****** let there dirt out, Some ****** keep it all in 'em So when a man dies all his secrets go with him And fame a part of history no longer known Done did a lot of dirt I'll bury with me when I'm gone When my story's told, how will they tell it? Will they say I was a giver or remember I was selfish Will they say I was a sinner or pretend I was a saint Will I go down as a winner, what's the picture they gon paint Wouldn't say that I'm a quitter that's one thing I know I ain't ain't Will they tarnish, will they taint? Glorify me, overthink, say they know me, say I'm great Say I'm phoney, I was fake Say the things about me that they never told me to my face I was loved I was hated Just a ***** with a dream I'm a liar I was honest, I was all of these things When I'm gone let em talk They discussing who I am When they bury me just know I was nothing but a man Wasn't nothin' but a
