    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 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

    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
