    Not so much a song I live by, but a song that sums my life up perfectly:

    Writing always makes me want to clean.
    Any writer knows just what I mean.
    When a deadline's on my tail, I get out the mop and pail.
    If I'm up against the gun, there's an errand must be run.

    Write a half a verse and play it back,
    Two more lines, hey, I deserve a snack
    When the fridge goes hum and the microwave goes ding, ding, ding,
    Sometimes that's the only song I sing sing sing.

    Doing the procrastination rag
    Golly I know, I'm an awful scallywag
    Always find a good excuse, to stopper-up creative juice
    Is it just me? Why am I so bone lazy?
    All of my procrastination brings me sorrow,
    Of course I will not think about it 'til tomorrow
    I could make myself get something done
    But nobody likes a nag,
    So I'm doing the procrastination rag!

    I would provide a youtube link, but it's an incredibly obscure Canadian comedy song, so I can't find it!

    "Think just once about you,
    Then the next step is to think of me,
    You like others, but you do not like yourself,
    It's not your fault, but don't forget to love yourself."

    -La Musique by Yelle (Translated from French)

    Where do you go
    When the day is long?
    And where does your heart beat
    And who is wrong?

    Why do I feel this way?
    Why do I kneel?
    How could I let it go?
    Why do I feel?
    Why do I feel?

    I'll tell you a song that you can believe... all of your life/
    Whenever you give and you're gone you will see... don't wait too long/
    What can you lose if follow your heart?... don't be afraid/
    It's hard to find when it's right from the start.../
    Right from the start!/

    "Right From The Start" by O'Bryan, "Doin' Alright", (1982)

    Is it alright if I revive this thread?

    Ok, I will anyways

    "I can't be what you want me to be,
    I can only be myself,
    I can't see what you want me to see,
    I can't be what you want me to be,
    Stop try'na change me
    I never said that I was flawless
    I never said I was the perfect man"

    "Don't wanna live without teeth, don't wanna die without bite
    Never want to say that I regret it. Never wanna say that the feelings change
    I don't have a heart to match the one pricked into your finger.
    All things meant to be destroyed, all moments meant to pass.
    This too will soon slip out of reach, this too will soon come to an end"

    Nordman - In the light of the flames

    She fell on the witnesses of two boys in the village.
    Said to have partied at the Devil's fest.
    She's only 17 years old and along the path/way they go
    She's pushed forward like a animal,gleered at.
    She tries to reach the look of her loved.
    But she sees him turn and walk away.
    And among them who watch
    Is the punishment she gets
    A light on the proof they don't understand

    Does she play with wizardy and magic?
    Can she awake the fury of the sky?
    Woah, from the light of the flames
    Can she walk on water like they've said?
    Can she trick death with her might/power?
    Woah, in the light of the flames

    Was just going through some old threads, because I felt like it, and decided a revival of this was in order...

    "You know enough to know the way.
    Six billion people, just one name. (I've found...)
    I've found tomorrow in today.
    Apocalyptic and insane, my dreams will never change...

    You wanna be the one in control...
    You wanna be the one who's alive...
    You wanna be the one that gets old...
    It's not a matter of luck, It's just a matter of time!

    Stand out on the edge of the Earth...

    Stand out on the edge of the Earth.
    Dive into the centre of fate.
    Walk right in the sight of the gun.
    Look into this new future's face! "

    You can do a lot in a lifetime
    If you don't burn out too fast
    You can make the most of the distance
    First you need endurance
    First you've got to last...

    (my emphasis)

    I want this song played at my funeral.

    Une chanson italienne
    Une romance d'amour
    Un refrain qui nous rappelle
    Le souvenir des beaux jours
    Dieu que la vie était belle
    Sous le soleil d'Italie
    Mille mandolines
    Mélodie divine
    C'est la chanson de notre amour

    "Maybe I just want to fly I want to live I don't want to die
    Maybe I just want to breathe maybe I just don't believe
    Maybe you're the same as me we see things they'll never see you and I
    You and I are gonna live forever
    We're gonna live forever"

    When the ground you're standing on is trembling
    You are feeling so helpless and so lost
    When somebody sets to you from fire [sic]
    When somebody tries to poison your mind

    Two are stronger than one
    We have to go on
    Come on boys and girls
    All over the world
    There's still love in the air
    No need to be scared
    Come on boys and girls
    All over the world

    This song might be a bit loud but the lyrics is the best.
