Does anyone know they name of this song? [08 Feb 2011|05:55pm]

grlinheadphones
On the latest ep. of Castle the song at the beginning.

"a pocket nickel-and-dime fortune and fame it's time wait till the stars go blind shot through the heart"

Anyone know it? I tried Google and got bits of it or close to it from a ton of songs but nothing dead on.

And you lock your doors
Like I've been here before
I feel like I've seen a ghost

you write such pretty words, but life's no storybook.
love's an excuse to get hurt and to hurt.
do you like to hurt?
i do, i do.
then hurt me.

"Last night I dreamed about you
I dreamed that you were older
You were looking like Picasso
With a scar across your shoulder
You were kneeling by the river
You were digging up the bodies
Buried long ago"

Electrickery Lyrics? [24 Sep 2009|01:40pm]

This is not a quote but I was hoping someone had or could point me to a copy of the lyrics to Just Jack's Electrickery?

I know there are some awesome people with lyrical knowledge out there.

Quote and question [06 May 2009|08:45pm]

[ mood | amused ]

"...firefighters work a second shift with prayers of rain upon their lips..."

I caught this last line of a song and thought the mental images was rather neat.... but I also was hoping someone might know what song it is from or even the band.

thx

What's your current favourite lyric or quote (from a song/story/poem etc) and what does it mean for you?

Currently I am obsessed with Snow Patrols song Disaster Button, because it just seems to sum it all up, all me up.

Hit that button there
The one that just says wrong
We'll lose our minds to all our favourite songs


I wish I had a disaster button, one that allowed me to lose myself in my favourite music when it was pressed. At any time, at any moment, in any place.

You?

Searching For A Song [21 Jan 2009|11:08am]

amor_demi_alma
Hi All!
Hope it's OK to post this.
I'm wondering if any of you know a song (preferably a slow, pensive one) that's essentially a friend saying to his best friend, "I love you and care about you ... just not romantically." Ideally, the singer knows that the best friend loves him, but he can't "love" the friend in return romantically, despite the fact that they're extremely close friends. Either gender of artist/band is all right.
Thanks for any help!

I kept everything inside and even though I tried it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory,
of a time when I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter..

Things aren’t the way they were before
You wouldn’t even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me
In the end

All my situations. [16 Nov 2008|05:31pm]

breathingbarbie
"Her headaches are constant. Increasing in pain with each passing day. She can't even manage to stand on her own. It's gotten so bad.Now you think in saying theres no use in praying but still she bows her head so she can say, "Thank you for just one more day."

He has ever reason to throw up his fist in the face of his God who let his mother die. Through all the pain and tears. She still passed in pain anyway.Now you think in saying theres no use in praying but still he bows his head so he can say, "Thank you for ending her pain."

Supernatural patience.
Graces her face and her voice never raises.
All because of the love.
Never let go of....
Never let go of.

She Wouldn't Be Gone - Blake Shelton [27 Sep 2008|10:20am]

bamboo82

Red roadside wild flower if I'd only picked you
Took you home set you on the counter, oh at least a time or two
Maybe she'd thought it through

Yellow sunset slowly dipping down in the rear view
Oh, how she'd love to sit and watch you
I could have done that a whole lot more

If I hadn't been so stubborn, been so selfish
Thought about her more, thought about me less
Joked and maked her laugh, held her when she cried
A little more that.. maybe I...

Wouldn't be driving like hell flying like crazy down the highway
Calling everyone we know stopping any place she might be
Going any place she might go beating on the dash
Screaming out her name at the windshield tears soaking up my face
If I had loved her this much all along, maybe maybe, yeaa maybe...
She wouldn't be gone.. she wouldn't be gone..

She warned me it was coming said if I didn't change, she was leaving
I just didn't believe she would ever really walk out, God, I believe her now

Called her mamma, cried like a baby to her best friend
If they've seen her, they ain't sayin, they ain't sayin...

Now, I'm cursing like a fool, praying it ain't too late all I wanna do is fix my mistakes
Find her beg her for one more try, until then damn it I"ll..

Be driving like hell flying like crazy down the highway
Calling everyone we know stopping any place she might be
Going any place she might go beating on the dash
Screaming out her name at the windshield tears soaking up my face
If I had loved her this much all along, maybe maybe, yeaa maybe...
She wouldn't be gone..

I wouldn't be beating on the dash
Screaming out her name at the windshield tears soaking up my face
If I had loved her this much all along, maybe maybe, yeaa maybe...
She wouldn't be gone..

Red roadside wild flower if I'd only picked you
Took you home set you on the counter, oh at least a time or two
Maybe she'd thought it through

Blake Shelton- Don't Make Me [27 Sep 2008|10:18am]

bamboo82

Girl When I Look At You
You Look Through Me Like I’m Not Even There
I Try Not To Give Up To Be Strong But
I’m Afraid To Say I’m Scared
I Can't Find The Place Your Heart Is Hidin'
I’m No Quitter But I’m Tired Of Fightin'

Chorus:
Baby I Love You
Don’t Wanna Lose You
Don’t Make Me Let You Go
Took Such A Long Time
For Me To Find You
Don’t Make Me Let You Go
Baby Your Beggin' Please
And I’m Down Here On My Knees
And I Don’t Wanna Have To Set You Free
Don’t Make Me

Verse 2:
What If When I’m Long Gone
It Dawns On You
You Just Might Want Me Back
Let Me Make Myself Clear
If I Leave Here
Its Done I’m Gone That’s That
You Carry Me Love Around
Like Its A Heavy Burden
I’m About To Take It Back
Are You Sure It’s Worth It

Chorus:
Baby I Love You
Don’t Wanna Lose You
Don’t Make Me Let You Go
Took Such A Long Time
For Me To Find You
Don’t Make Me Let You Go
Baby Your Begging Please
And I’m Down Here On My Knees
And I Don’t Wanna Have To Set You Free
Don’t Make Me

Baby Your Beggin Please
And I’m Down Here On My Knees
I Don’t Wanna Have To Set You Free
Don’t Make Me
Don’t Make Me
Stop Lovin' You
Stop Needin' You

"Hearts A Mess" by Gotye [09 Feb 2008|11:27am]

lilac_spring
[ mood | contemplative ]

Pick apart
The pieces of your heart
And let me peer inside
Let me in
Where only your thoughts have been
Let me occupy your mind
As you do mine
You have lost
Too much love
To fear, doubt and distrust
(It’s not enough)
You just threw away the key
To your heart
You don’t get burned
(’Cause nothing gets through)
It makes it easier
(Easier on you)
But that much more difficult for me
To make you see...
Love ain’t fair
So there you are
My love

Your heart’s a mess
You won’t admit to it
It makes no sense
But I’m desperate to connect
And you, you can’t live like this

Love ain’t safe
You won’t get hurt if you stay chaste
So you can wait
But I don’t wanna waste my love

Girl - Ben Folds [07 Dec 2007|09:13am]

do_whatever
[ mood | thoughtful ]

Girl, it's been a long time
Since we had it going on that way
Feelings getting stronger
Each and every day

Ahh

Wake up, oh yeah
I can feel you but you're not there
Holding on to thin air
Cause your dreaming of somebody else

Sexed up, our toes curl
Used to have it going on, girl
Washed our worries from this hard world
Now you're dreaming of somebody else

Girl, it's been a long time
Since we had it going on that way
Feelings getting stronger
Each and every day

Girl, it's been a long time
Since we had it going on that way
Feelings getting stronger
Each and every day

And if you call me back girl
(I'll be there, I'll be there)
Yeah, I will be your man
(I'll be there, I'll be there)
Yeah, you may lie your ass off
(You were there, you were there)
Girl

(You say the longer we go
The more your friends are freakin' out
Well, you oughta know that
I wouldn't stand between you
And my deafness screams sometimes
And my heart has gravity sickness
I just don't know
Is it me or is it you?
What are you trying to do?)

Girl, it's been a long time
Since we had it going on that way
Feelings getting stronger
Each and every day

Girl, it's been a long time
Since we had it going on that way
And it's getting stronger
Each and every day

Pattern Recognition [04 Dec 2007|02:34pm]

agape_eternal
[ mood | pissed off ]

"We have no future because our present is too volatile," says Pattern Recognition's arch-capitalist, Hubertus Bigend. "We have only risk management. The spinning of the given moment's scenarios. Pattern Recognition." In such a present, the future recedes into memory. As our imaginations fail, science fiction is rendered obsolete.

"Parkaboy says you should go to new footage as though you've seen no previous footage at all, thereby momentarily escaping the film or films you've been assembling with, consciously or unconsciously, since first exposure. Homo sapiens are about pattern recognition, he says. Both a gift and a trap"--pgs. 22-23 in paperback

White Flag by Dido [27 Nov 2007|12:53am]

linzbinz521
 I know you think that I shouldn't still love you,
I'll tell you that.
But if I didn't say it, well I'd still have felt it
where's the sense in that?

I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder
Or return to where we were

Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

I know I left too much mess and
destruction to come back again
And I caused but nothing but trouble
I understand if you can't talk to me again
And if you live by the rules of "it's over"
then I'm sure that that makes sense

Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

And when we meet
Which I'm sure we will
All that was then
Will be there still
I'll let it pass
And hold my tongue
And you will think
That I've moved on....

Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

Guess the titles of the songs the lyrics are taken from.

POINT SYSTEM:
Title of the song = 1 point
Song title and artist = 2 points
Artist only = no point

If you get at least 10 points, you may post your own lyrics quiz in your LJ.

( Get your pens ready. )
