Hey.. I'm kind of bored so I thought I'd do this thread where people post their most favourite and meaningful lyrics, with the name of the song and everything. I'm looking for songs to download anyway so they might just turn out interesting. Post whatever your music type please Mine at the moment is Broken Promises- by Element Eighty.

"Broken Promises"

The day you left me
there was a feeling I have never shown
The day you told me
there were the words that I have never known
And now it's over
So what's left that I should ever feel
cause since the day you left me I have been so alone

And now we're left with broken promises
my heart can't take no more
and now we're left with broken promises
my mind has had enough

Deep inside me
there are things that I have never told
they burn inside me
and now I need to know
Why are you trying to take everything away from me
well I'm begging you
I'm here with nothing left to show
cause since the day you left me I have been so alone

And now we're left with broken promises
my heart can't take no more
And now we're left with broken promises
my mind has had enough

Look at how you turned on me
You ran away and left me here with nothing to see
I'm a man so turn around and say it to me
Don't you think I've got something to say
Look at how you turned on me
You ran away and left me here with nothing to see
I'm a man so turn around and say it to me
Don't you think I've got something to say
Now look at how you turned on me
You ran away and left me here with nothing to see
I'm a man so turn around and say it to me
Don't you think I've got something to say

And now we're left with broken promises
my heart can't take no more
and now we're left with broken promises
my mind has had enough
and now we're left with broken promises
my heart can't take no more
and now we're left with broken promises
my mind has had enough

Pink Floyd - Time

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
And you are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in a quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
And when I come home cold and tired
It’s good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells.

I stumbled across an unsigned artist a few days back, he uploaded some of his stuff to a new artist site and it was immense. These lyrics in particular stood out for me...

"Where the Problematic Play"

Somewhere, in the middle of the jungle, where the problematic play.
I am hacking my way through the vines of nerves inside my brain.
Trying, to find, someway to explain.

This one goes out to the women in the magazines,
Who pout and try to tell to tell me who to be,
But they're not fooling me,
Hell no,
I'd rather die alone.

Don't waste time on the telephone line. It'll only deceive.
Practise counting cards and try your best to preconceive.
I hold a key inside the underside of my fist,
And there are many things,many strings I could pull with,
This...

...One goes out to the women in the magazines,
Who pout and try to tell to tell me who to be,
But they're not fooling me,
Hell no.
I'd rather die alone.

My all time favevanescense

"My Immortal"

I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

You used to captivate me
By your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

Somebody by Depeche Mode

I want somebody to share
Share the rest of my life
Share my innermost thoughts
Know my intimate details
Someone who'll stand by my side
And give me support
And in return
She'll get my support
She will listen to me
When I want to speak
About the world we live in
And life in general
Though my views may be wrong
They may even be perverted
She will hear me out
And won't easily be converted
To my way of thinking
In fact she'll often disagree
But at the end of it all
She will understand me

I want somebody who cares
For me passionately
With every thought and with every breath
Someone who'll help me see things
In a different light
All the things I detest
I will almost like
I don't want to be tied
To anyone's strings
I'm carefully trying to steer clear
Of those things
But when I'm asleep
I want somebody
Who will put their arms around me
And kiss me tenderly
Though things like this
Make me sick
In a case like this
I'll get away with it

If you've lost your faith in love and music, the end won't be long.

Recently discovered song; 'Swollen' - Bent.

With you in my garden
its more peaceful inside
I don’t need anything else
to make me feel alive

You electrify me
And I want to be in your arms
for always
for always

Our love is swollen
Made of the quietest shade of loud
Holds me like an anchor
Floats just like a cloud

Our love is swollen
Made of the quietest shade of loud
Holds me like an anchor
Floats just like a cloud
