    They say it's never too late
    To stop being afraid
    And there is no one else here
    So why should I wait?
    And in the blink of an eye the past begins to fade

    So have you ever been caught in a sea of despair?
    And your moment of truth
    Is the day that you say "I'm not scared"

    Eeeeeeee! I love Shinedown! But I don't, like, keep track of who releases what when, so when I saw a track name I didn't recognise I went to go look this up and found an entire new album I don't already own!

    You just got me something new to listen to. Thanks!

    But if your strife strikes at your sleep
    Remember spring swaps snow for leaves
    You'll be happy and wholesome again
    When the city clears and the sun ascends

    Hey, little kid
    Did you wake up late one day and
    You're not so young, but you're still dumb
    And you're numb to your old glory
    but now it's gone

    I fell in love, but it didn't catch your fall
    Then I crashed, into a wall
    Then I fell to pieces on the floor
    Now you're sick to death

    Bombs away, here goes nothing
    The shouting's over
    Hey X-Kid, bombs away
    Here goes nothing
    The shouting's over and out
    Over and out again

    [​IMG]

    I have a love hate relationship with this song, just because of it's about.

    I won't let this build up inside of me.

    Sometimes you gotta dig deep, when problems come near/
    Don't fear/ things get severe/ for everybody everywhere/
    Why do bad things happen, to good people?/
    Seems that life is just a constant war between good and evil/
    The situation that I'm facin'/, is mad amazin'/
    to think such problems can arise from minor confrontations/
    Now I'm contemplatin in my bedroom pacin'/
    Dark clouds over my head, my heart's racin'/
    Suicide? Nah,/ I'm not a foolish guy/
    Don't even feel like drinking, or even gettin high/
    Cause all that's gonna do really, is accelerate/
    the anxieties that I wish I could alleviate/
    But wait, I've been through a whole lot of other sh[expletive], before/
    So I oughta be able, to withstand some more/
    But I'm sweatin though,/ my eyes are turnin red and, yo/
    I'm ready to lose my mind/ but instead I use my mind/
    I put down the knife, and take the bullets out my nine/
    My only crime,/ was that I'm too damn kind/
    And now some skanless motherf[expletive] wanna take what's mine/
    But they can't take the respect, that I've earned in my lifetime/
    And you know they'll never stop the furious force of my rhymes/
    So like they say,/ every dog has it's day/
    And like they say,/ God works in a mysterious way/
    So I pray,/ remembering the days of my youth/
    As I prepare to meet my moment of truth/ -- Gang Starr "Moment Of Truth" (1999)

    Remember how you used to say
    You couldn't wait till tomorrow for a brand new day
    No fuss when ya had to ride the bus
    You could add a little blush
    Just to paralyze your school crush

    Now your older and the weight upon your shoulder
    Makes the world a little colder
    No more hidin in the old days
    Be strong
    Don't give up hope
    It will get hard
    Cause life's like a jump rope

    Up down, up, down, up, down, up down, yeah
    When it gets hard remember life's like a jump rope
    Up down, up, down, up, down, up down, yeah
    Remember life's like a jump rope

    There'll be a bump there will be a bruise
    There'll be alarms and there will be a snooze
    There'll be a path that you will get to choose
    There'll be a win and there will be a lose

    You have to hold your head up high and
    Watch all the negative go by
    Don't you ever be ashamed to cry
    You go ahead
    'Cause life's like a jump rope

    I want to tell you that everything will be okay
    That everything will eventually turn itself to gold
    Keep pushin through it all
    Don't follow, lead the way
    Don't lose yourself or your hope
    Remember life's like a jump rope

    Today I don't feel like doing anything,
    I just wanna lay in my bed,
    Don't feel like picking up my phone,
    So leave a message at the tone,
    'Cause today I don't feel like doing anything,
    Nothing at all

    The lazy song - Bruno Mars.

    My theme song :)

    Different is hard
    Different is lonely
    Different is trouble
    for you only
    Different is heartache
    Different is pain
    but I'd rather be different than be the same

    Different with Mama Cass

    Wonder no longer - together we're stronger!

    When your heart is full of sadness and despair
    I'll carry you
    When you need a friend
    You'll find my footprints in the sand.

    I know it's hard to tell how mixed up you feel
    Hoping what you need is behind every door
    Each time you get hurt, I don't want you to change
    Because everyone has hopes, you're human after all

    The feeling sometimes wishing you were someone else
    Feeling as though you never belong
    This feeling is not sadness, this feeling is not joy
    I truly understand, please don't cry now

    Please don't go, I want you to stay
    I'm begging you, please, please don't leave here
    I don't want you to hate for all the hurt that you feel
    The world is just illusion trying to change you

    Being like you are, well, this is something else
    Who would comprehend? But some that do lay claim
    Divine purpose blesses them, that's not what I believe
    And it doesn't matter anyway

    A part of your soul ties you to the next world
    Or maybe to the last but I'm still not sure
    But what I do know is to us the world is different
    As we are to the world, I guess you would know that

    Please don't go, I want you to stay
    I'm begging you, please, please don't leave here
    I don't want you to hate for all the hurt that you feel
    The world is just illusion trying to change you

    I havent been quite the same,
    so sure the story of my life would never change.
    But in a bright-eyed way, she rinsed out the soap in my eyes,
    and wrote a song that I'm about to sing.

    She's a magnetic girl
    That I hardly even know.
    So this is not another love song.
    Just a list of things that I should know,
    and everyone should know.

    That...

    1. You gotta take it kinda slowly
    2. you gotta hurry up and make your move
    3. You gotta tell her how you're feelin.
    4. You gotta be the perfect gentelman.

    When you shake the walls, you gotta make 'em bend.
    You gotta show her that
    She's the balance beam
    and I keep falling all around her fairy tale.

    Huh now this thread I like!
    I've always loved music and it's been a massive part of my life

    so inspirational/meaningful lines -

    "So can you tell me what exactly does "freedom" mean if I'm not free to be as twisted as I wanna be" - Divide by Disturbed (Actually this whole song pretty much falls under this)

    "It's better to burn than to fade away, it's better to leave than to be replaced, I'm losing to you baby I'm no match, I'm goin' numb I've been hijacked" - Nicotine by Panic At The Disco (Cynical romantic songs strike quite the chord with me)

    More to come I'm sure

    "Sometimes the body needs to feel stress to appreciate the joy." - Show Me (Mint Royale)

    "Wine, beer and spirits all the time." - Crocodile Shoes (Jimmy Nail)
    I don't know why, but that line has always held so much emotion as an opening line to a song, and although it's not an answer for me, I can see how it would be based on the song's topic. It also sets a very good scene and mood for the rest of the track.

    The whole of Done by the Forces of Nature is pretty positive and inspirational, but this song in particular has a great message.

    "Knowledge stands upright, fear has no height
    Work towards the star that gives off the brightest light
    JB's moving in the right direction
    Free of injury or evil infection
    Stay out the dark and you find you'll be strong
    Believe in yourself and nothing will go wrong
    There's room out there for those who want some
    Because everybody's got a little light, under the sun."

    Jungle Brothers - "Sunshine" (1989)

    If you keep building these walls
    Brick by brick, towers so tall
    Soon I won't see you at all
    'Till the concrete angels fall

    I knew how you were from the start
    But now, I don't know who you are
    Soon there'll be nothing at all
    'Till the concrete angels fall

    -- Gareth Emery ft. Cristina Novelli "Concrete Angels" (2013)

    I'm at war with the world and they
    Try to pull me into the dark
    I struggle to find my faith
    As I'm slippin' from your arms

    It's getting harder to stay awake
    And my strength is fading fast
    You breathe into me at last

    [Chorus]
    I'm awake I'm alive
    Now I know what I believe inside
    Now it's my time
    I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life
    here (right here), right now (right now)
    I'll stand my ground and never back down
    I know what I believe inside
    I'm awake and I'm alive

    I'm at war with the world cause I
    Ain't never gonna sell my soul
    I've already made up my mind
    No matter what I can't be bought or sold

    When my faith is getting weak
    And I feel like giving in
    You breathe into me again

    [Chorus]
    I'm awake I'm alive
    Now I know what I believe inside
    Now it's my time
    I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life
    here (right here), right now (right now)
    I'll stand my ground and never back down
    I know what I believe inside
    I'm awake and I'm alive

    Waking up waking up
    Waking up waking up
    Waking up waking up
    Waking up waking up

    In the dark
    I can feel you in my sleep
    In your arms I feel you breathe into me
    Forever hold this heart that I will give to you
    Forever I will live for you

    [Chorus]
    I'm awake I'm alive
    Now I know what I believe inside
    Now it's my time
    I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life
    here (right here), right now (right now)
    I'll stand my ground and never back down
    I know what I believe inside
    I'm awake and I'm alive

    Waking up waking up
    Waking up waking up
    Waking up waking up
    Waking up waking up

    -Skillet "Awake And Alive" (2009)
