Ever listened to a song and the words really speak out to you?
What was the lyric, why is it important to you?

Mine's "A beauty lives in every soul, the more you love, the more you know"

I'm extremely cynical but listening to this has made me be more forgiving and accepting of people. Kinda changed my outlook a lot.

This is hard. Could pick new ones every day, probably several times in a day.

I have a t shirt with 'my vacuum cleaner's blowing out instead of sucking in' on it. I wonder if anyone will get where that's from?

i know im reviving a week old thread but literally all of the killers songs are perfect. that said, nothings quite hit me like exitlude from sams town did. like, the entire song.

Aggressively, we all defend the role we play
Regrettably, the time's come to send you on your way
We've seen it all: from bonfires of trust to flash floods of pain
It doesn't really matter; don't you worry, it will all work out
No, it doesn't really matter; don't worry, that ain't what it's all about
We hope you enjoyed your stay
And it's good to have you with us
Even if it's just for the day
We hope you've enjoyed your stay
Outside the sun is shining
It seems like heaven ain't far away
It's good to have you with us
Even if it's just for the day

Please, Mr Brightside IS NOT the killers only song, and their work is genius. please listen to them.

I can't write one song that's not about you
Can't drink without thinking about you
Is it too late to tell you that
Everything means nothing if I can't have you?
I'm in Toronto and I got this view
But I might as well be in a hotel room, yeah
It doesn't matter 'cause I'm so consumed
Spending all my nights reading texts from you
Oh, I'm good at keeping my distance
I know that you're the feeling I'm missing
You know that I hate to admit it
But everything means nothing if I can't have you
I can't write one song that's not about you
Can't drink without thinking about you
Is it too late to tell you that
Everything means nothing if I can't have you?
I can't write one song that's not about you
Can't drink without thinking about you
Is it too late to tell you that
Everything means nothing if I can't have you?
I'm so sorry that my timing's off
But I can't move on if we're still gonna talk
Is it wrong for me to not want half?
I want all of you, all the strings attached
Oh, I'm good at keeping my distance
I know that you're the feeling I'm missing
You know that I hate to admit it
But everything means nothing if I can't have you
I can't write one song that's not about you

Everything means nothing
Everything means nothing, babe
I'm trying to move on, forget you, but I hold on
Everything means nothing if I can't have you, no
I can't write one song that's not about you
Can't drink without thinking about you
Is it too late to tell you that
Everything means nothing if I can't have you? (Yeah)

You shut me down, you like the control
You speak to me like I'm a child
Try to hold it down, I know the answer
I can't shake it off and you feel threatened by me

You had me by joss stone-

You had me
You lost me
You're wasted
You cost me
I don't want you here, messin' with my mind

I've realized
In time
That my eyes
Are not blind
I've seen it, before, I'm takin' back my life

Fun fact: all of these lyrics are from Taylor Swift’s album ‘Reputation’ - It’s basically the best album I’ve ever heard in my life, as you can tell. Read it all if you dare 😊

“I once was poison ivy but now I’m your daisy”

“They took the crown but it’s alright”

“Nobody’s heard from me for months, I’m doing better than I ever was”

“All the jokers dressing up as kings”

“Loves me like I’m brand new”

“Call it what you want to”

“I wanna be your endgame”

“Reputation precedes me, they told you I’m crazy, I swear I don’t love the drama, it loves me”

“You asked me for a place to sleep, locked me out, and threw a feast (WHAT?!)”

“Your love is a secret I’m hoping, dreaming, dying to keep”

“And all at once you are the one I have been waiting for, king of my heart, body and soul”

“Is this the end of all the endings, my broken bones are mending, with all these nights we’re spending”

“I, I loved you in secret, first sight, yeah we love without reason”

“I, I loved you in spite of, deep fears that the world would divide us”

“I’m a mess, but I’m the mess that you wanted”

“You had turned my bed into a sacred oasis, people started talking putting us through our paces, I knew there was no one in the world who could take it, I had a bad feeling, but we were dancing, dancing with our hands tied”

“My reputation’s never been worse so, you must like me for me”

“Is it cool that I said all that, is it cool that you’re in my head, ‘cause I know that it’s delicate”

“Knew he was a killer, first time that I saw him, wonder how many girls he had left and left haunted”

“Every love I’ve known in comparison is a failure”

“Touch me and you'll never be alone, i-island breeze and lights down low, no one has to know

“Our secret moments, in a crowded room, they’ve got no idea, about me and you”

“Flashback to my mistakes, my rebounds, my earthquakes, even in my worst lies, you saw the truth in me, and I woke up just in time, now I wake up by your side, oooh”

‘There is a beautiful pain that passes swiftly’ (or at least that is how I would translate it) from grey blow by Monica sex. I think the whole song speaks to this sense of change from hopeful youth to sadness and loss that I have been feeling recently. The way the lyrics frame it as a change from the love story with images and metaphors to all of that going, I like it a lot.

I also quite like ‘In the paper today tales of war and of waste But you turn right over to the T.V. page’ from Don’t Dream It’s Over by crowded House because it really speaks to the kind of apathy we still see in the world today - I like the melancholic ambiguity of the song overall tbh.

I totally agree!
I'll be honest, all the clubs/bars butchering Mr Brightside ruined the song for me.
I really love Bones though, I think that has to be my favourite song by them.

You gotta go and reach for the top
Believe in every dream that you got
You're only living once so tell me?
What are you, what are you waiting for?
You know you gotta give it your all
And don't you be afraid if you fall
You're only living once so tell me?
What are you, what are you waiting for?


Everybody's gonna make mistakes
But everybody's got a choice to make
Everybody needs a leap of faith
When are you taking yours?


I try to live my life like these lyrics. Or the below.

This is an anthem to the homesick
For the beaten
The lost, the broke, the defeated
A song for the heartsick
For the standby's
Living life in the shadow of a goodbye
Do you remember when we learned how to fly?
We'd play make believe
We were young and had time on our side
You're stuck on the ground
Got lost, can't be found
Just remember that you're still alive
I'll carry you home
No you're not alone
Keep marching on
This is worth fighting for
You know we've all got battle scars
You've had enough
But just don't give up
Stick to your guns
You are worth fighting for
You know we've all got battle scars
Keep marching on
This is a call to the soldiers
The fighters, the young, the innocent, the righteous
We've got a little room to grow
Better days are near
Hope is so much stronger than fear
If you jump kid don't be scared to fall
Well, we'll be kings and queens in this dream
All for one, one for all
You can light up the dark
There's this fire in your heart
Burning brighter than ever before

We walked towards the same place
But this place becomes our last
Although we used to talk about forever
Now we break each other without mercy
Although we thought that we dreamed the same dream
That dream has finally become a dream
My heart is torn, please burn it instead
So that pain and regret, none of that would be left
