    This was one of my favorite threads in the “old forums” and I thought I’d replicate it here. You simply post your favorite lyrics

    I’ll start us off, here’s one a song lyric that means a lot to me these days:

    “Holding out for a Hero”
    Artist: Bonnie Tyler
    (written by: Jim Stienman and Dean Pitchford)

    Where have all the good men gone
    And where are all the gods?
    Where’s the street-wise Hercules
    To fight the rising odds?
    Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
    Late at night I toss and I turn and I dream of what I need

    [Chorus:]
    I need a hero
    I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night
    He’s gotta be strong
    And he’s gotta be fast
    And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
    I need a hero
    I’m holding out for a hero ’til the morning light
    He’s gotta be sure
    And it’s gotta be soon
    And he’s gotta be larger than life

    Somewhere after midnight
    In my wildest fantasy
    Somewhere just beyond my reach
    There’s someone reaching back for me
    Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
    It’s gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet

    [Chorus]

    Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
    Out where the lightning splits the sea
    I would swear that there’s someone somewhere
    Watching me

    Through the wind and the chill and the rain
    And the storm and the flood
    I can feel his approach
    Like the fire in my blood

    [Chorus]

    I’m a robot if there ever was one, but this song destroys me. 

     “Blood
    Bank”
    Bon Iver
    Blood Bank EP

    Well,
    I met you at the 
    blood
    bank

    We
    were looking at the bags
    Wondering if any of the colors
    Matched
    any of the names we knew on the tags

    You said, see look that’s
    yours
    Stacked on top with your brother’s
    See how the resemble
    one another
    Even in their plastic little covers

    And I said
    I know it well
    That secret that you knew but don’t know how to
    tell
    It fucks with your honor and it teases your head
    But you
    know that it’s good girl
    ‘Cause its running you with red

    Then
    the snow started falling
    We were stuck out in your car
    You were
    rubbing both of my hands
    Chewing on a candy bar

    You said,
    ain’t this just like the present
    To be showing up like this?
    As
    a moon waned to crescent
    We started to kiss

    And I said I
    know it well
    That secret that we know that we don’t know how to
    tell
    I’m in love with your honor, I’m in love with your
    cheeks
    What’s that noise up the stairs, babe?
    Is that Christmas
    morning creaks?

    And I know it well, I know it well
    And I
    know it well, I know it
    And I know it, I know it
    And I know it,
    I know it

    I’ve often wondered if there’s
    Ever been a perfect family
    I’ve always longed for undividedness
    And sought stability

    A flower taught me how to pray
    But as I grew, that flower changed
    She started failing in the wind
    Like golden petals scattering

    And I miss you dandelion
    And even love you
    And I wish there was a way
    For me to trust you
    But it hurts me every time
    I try to touch you

    But I miss you dandelion
    And even love you

    I gravitated towards a patriarch
    So young predictably
    I was resigned to spend my life
    With a maze of misery

    A boy and a girl befriended me
    We’re bonded through despondency
    I stayed so long but finally
    I fled to save my sanity

    And I miss you little sis and
    Little brother
    And I hope you realize
    I’ll always love you
    (Always love you)
    And although you’re struggling
    You will recover
    (You’re gonna make it, baby)
    And I miss you little sis and
    Little brother

    So many I considered
    Closest to me
    Turned on a dime and sold me
    Out dutifully
    Although that knife was chipping
    Away at me
    They turned their eyes away and
    Went home to sleep
    (Sleep)
    (Sleep)
    (Sleep)

    And I missed a lot of life
    But I’ll recover
    Though I know you really like
    To see me suffer
    Still I wish that you and I’d
    Forgive each other
    ‘Cause I miss you, Valentine
    And really loved you

    I really loved you
    (I guess I loved you)
    I tried so hard
    But you drove me away
    To preserve my sanity

    And I found the strength to break away
    (Do do do do do)
    (Do do do do do do do do)
    Fly

    —Petals, Mariah Carey

    Paper Bag, Fiona Apple

    I was staring at the sky, just looking for a star

    To pray on, or wish on, or something like that

    I was having a sweet fix of a daydream of a boy

    Whose reality I knew, was a hopeless to be had

    But then the dove of hope began its downward slope

    And I believed for a moment that my chances

    Were approaching to be grabbed

    But as it came down near, so did a weary tear

    I thought it was a bird, but it was just a paper bag

    Hunger hurts, and I want him so bad, oh it kills

    ‘Cause I know I’m a mess he don’t wanna clean up

    I got to fold ’cause these hands are too shaky to hold

    Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love

    And I went crazy again today, looking for a strand to climb

    Looking for a little hope

    Baby said he couldn’t stay, wouldn’t put his lips to mine,

    And a fail to kiss is a fail to cope

    I said, ‘Honey, I don’t feel so good, don’t feel justified

    Come on put a little love here in my void,’ he said

    ‘It’s all in your head,’ and I said, ‘So’s everything’

    But he didn’t get it I thought he was a man

    But he was just a little boy

    Hunger hurts, and I want him so bad, oh it kills

    ‘Cause I know I’m a mess he don’t wanna clean up

    I got to fold ’cause these hands are too shaky to hold

    Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love

    Hunger hurts, and I want him so bad, oh it kills

    ‘Cause I know I’m a mess he don’t wanna clean up

    I got to fold ’cause these hands are too shaky to hold

    Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love

    Whitney Houston
    “Greatest Love Of All”

    I believe the children are our future
    Teach them well and let them lead the way
    Show them all the beauty they possess inside
    Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
    Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be

    Everybody’s searching for a hero
    People need someone to look up to
    I never found anyone who fulfilled my needs
    A lonely place to be
    So I learned to depend on me

    [Chorus:]
    I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows
    If I fail, if I succeed
    At least I’ll live as I believe
    No matter what they take from me
    They can’t take away my dignity
    Because the greatest love of all
    Is happening to me
    I found the greatest love of all
    Inside of me
    The greatest love of all
    Is easy to achieve
    Learning to love yourself
    It is the greatest love of all

    I believe the children are our future
    Teach them well and let them lead the way
    Show them all the beauty they possess inside
    Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
    Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be

    [Chorus]

    And if, by chance, that special place
    That you’ve been dreaming of
    Leads you to a lonely place
    Find your strength in love

    “Beautiful”

    [Spoken]
    Don’t look at me

    Every day is so wonderful
    Then suddenly, it’s hard to breathe
    Now and then, I get insecure
    From all the pain, I’m so ashamed

    I am beautiful no matter what they say
    Words can’t bring me down
    I am beautiful in every single way
    Yes, words can’t bring me down
    So don’t you bring me down today

    To all your friends you’re delirious
    So consumed in all your doom
    Trying hard to fill the emptiness
    The pieces gone, left the puzzle undone
    That’s the way it is

    You are beautiful no matter what they say
    Words can’t bring you down
    You are beautiful in every single way
    Yes, words can’t bring you down, oh, no
    So don’t you bring me down today…

    No matter what we do
    (no matter what we do)
    No matter what we say
    (no matter what we say)
    We’re the song inside the tune
    Full of beautiful mistakes

    And everywhere we go
    (and everywhere we go)
    The sun will always shine
    (sun will always shine)
    And tomorrow we might wake on the other side
    All the other times

    We are beautiful no matter what they say
    Yes, words won’t bring us down
    We are beautiful in every single way
    Yes, words can’t bring us down, oh, no
    So don’t you bring me down today

    Don’t you bring me down today
    Don’t you bring me down today

    “Lift Me Up”

    So the pain begins
    As the music fades
    And I’m left here with
    With more than I can take

    If you lift me up
    Just get me through this night
    I know I’ll rest tomorrow
    And I’ll be strong enough to try

    When the static clears
    And all is said and done
    I will realize
    That we all need someone

    If you lift me up
    Just get me through this night
    I know I’ll rest tomorrow
    And I’ll be strong enough to try

    So when you see me crashing
    And there’s nowhere left to fall
    Will you lift me even higher
    To rise above this all

    If you lift me up
    Said if you lift me up

    Whoo-yeah, ahhh-yeah (repeat x2)

    Said if you lift me up
    Will you lift me higher

    When you see me crashing
    And theres nowhere left to fall
    Will you lift me even higher
    To rise above this all

    If you lift me up
    Said if you lift me up
    If you lift me up
    Just get me through this night

    “You Oughta Know”
    By: Alanis Morissette

    I want you to know, that I’m happy for you
    I wish nothing but the best for you both
    An older version of me
    Is she perverted like me
    Would she go down on you in a theatre
    Does she speak eloquently
    And would she have your baby
    I’m sure she’d make a really excellent mother

    ’cause the love that you gave that we made wasn’t able
    To make it enough for you to be open wide, no
    And every time you speak her name
    Does she know how you told me you’d hold me
    Until you died, till you died
    But you’re still alive

    And I’m here to remind you
    Of the mess you left when you went away
    It’s not fair to deny me
    Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
    You, you, you oughta know

    You seem very well, things look peaceful
    I’m not quite as well, I thought you should know
    Did you forget about me Mr. Duplicity
    I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner
    It was a slap in the face how quickly I was replaced
    Are you thinking of me when you fuck her?

    ’cause the love that you gave that we made wasn’t able
    To make it enough for you to be open wide, no
    And every time you speak her name
    Does she know how you told me you’d hold me
    Until you died, til you died
    But you’re still alive

    And I’m here to remind you
    Of the mess you left when you went away
    It’s not fair to deny me
    Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
    You, you, you oughta know

    ’cause the joke that you laid on the bed that was me
    And I’m not gonna fade
    As soon as you close your eyes and you know it
    And every time I scratch my nails down someone else’s back
    I hope you feel it…well can you feel it

    Well, I’m here to remind you
    Of the mess you left when you went away
    It’s not fair to deny me
    Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
    You, you, you oughta know

    “Head Over Feet”
    By: Alanis Morissette

    I had no choice but to hear you
    You stated your case time and again
    I thought about it

    You treat me like I’m a princess
    I’m not used to liking that
    You ask how my day was

    You’ve already won me over in spite of me
    And don’t be alarmed if I fall head over feet
    Don’t be surprised if I love you for all that you are
    I couldn’t help it
    It’s all your fault

    Your love is thick and it swallowed me whole
    You’re so much braver than I gave you credit for
    That’s not lip service

    You’ve already won me over in spite of me
    And don’t be alarmed if I fall head over feet
    Don’t be surprised if I love you for all that you are
    I couldn’t help it
    It’s all your fault

    You are the bearer of unconditional things
    You held your breath and the door for me
    Thanks for your patience

    You’re the best listener that I’ve ever met
    You’re my best friend
    Best friend with benefits
    What took me so long

    I’ve never felt this healthy before
    I’ve never wanted something rational
    I am aware now
    I am aware now

    You’ve already won me over in spite of me
    And don’t be alarmed if I fall head over feet
    Don’t be surprised if I love you for all that you are
    I couldn’t help it
    It’s all your fault

    Leech
    By: Eve 6

    Tell those stories to me
    I’m dying to hear the things you’ve done and seen
    Farfetched as they may be
    You strike a smile in me
    Your stories ring of perjury
    Construed with self empowering theme

    Suckin’ on my brain you’re the teacher I’m the student
    Turning things around your story’s not congruent
    Tabloid decoys pitiful excuses
    Turning things around
    You’re turning things around

    A manic stunning scene
    I’m taking notes your taking me away into your false reality
    I know your comfort lies in lying to try to make your life make sense
    But you’re not making sense
    With your two cents, you’re…

    Suckin’ on my brain you’re the teacher I’m the student
    Turning things around your story’s not congruent
    Tabloid decoys pitiful excuses
    Turning things around
    You’re turning things around

    I’d say it aloud but I’m not allowed
    I see your head spin round and round

    Broken record talk tonight
    Skip that needle back and forth on your mind
    Wearing out unconvincing lies
    Like a seedling dropped from an old oak tree
    Your shade don’t hide no sun from me
    Fake stories humor me
    It’s graduation time
    I love you like a mother

    Suckin’ on my brain your the teacher I’m the student
    Turning things around your story’s not congruent
    Tabloid decoys pitiful excuses
    Turning things around
    You’re turning things around

    F***ing brilliant.

    “Transatlanticism”
    Death Cab for Cutie 
    Transatlanticism

    The Atlantic was born today and I’ll tell you how…
    The clouds above opened up and let it out.

    I was standing on the surface of a perforated sphere
    When the water filled every hole.
    And thousands upon thousands made an ocean,
    Making islands where no island should go.
    Oh no.

    Those people were overjoyed; they took to their boats.
    I thought it less like a lake and more like a moat.
    The rhythm of my footsteps crossing flatlands to your door have been silenced forever more.
    The distance is quite simply much too far for me to row
    It seems farther than ever before
    Oh no.

    I need you so much closer [x8]


    I need you so much closer [x4]
    So come on, come on [x4]

    “The Voice Within”

    Young girl, don’t cry
    I’ll be right here when your world starts to fall
    Ooh
    Young girl, it’s alright
    Your tears will dry, you’ll soon be free to fly
    Ooh

    When you’re safe inside your room, you tend to dream
    Of a place where nothing’s harder than it seems
    No one ever wants or bothers to explain
    Of the heartache life can bring and what it means

    When there’s no one else, look inside yourself
    Like your oldest friend, just trust the voice within
    Then you’ll find the strength that will guide your way
    You’ll learn to begin to trust the voice within
    Yea
    Oh

    Young girl, don’t hide
    You’ll never change if you just run away
    Ooh, woh yeah
    Young girl, just hold tight
    Soon you’re gonna see your brighter day
    Ooh

    Now in a world where innocence is quickly claimed
    It’s so hard to stand your ground when you’re so afraid
    No one reaches out a hand for you to hold
    When you look outside, look inside to your soul

    When there’s no one else, look inside yourself
    Like your oldest friend, just trust the voice within
    Then you’ll find the strength that will guide your way
    If you will learn to begin to trust the voice within

    Oh, ho, yea
    Ooh, oh, yea
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
    Oh, yea
    (Ooh, ooh,ooh)
    Life is a journey
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
    It can take you anywhere you choose to go
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
    As long as you’re learning
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
    You’ll find all you’ll ever need to know
    (Be strong)
    You’ll break it
    (Hold on)
    You’ll make it
    (Be strong)
    Just don’t forsake it because
    (Hold on)
    (No one can tell you what you can’t do)
    No one can stop you, you know that I’m talking to you

    When there’s no one else, look inside yourself
    Like your oldest friend, just trust the voice within
    Then you’ll find the strength that will guide your way
    You’ll learn to begin to trust the voice within

    Ooh, yea
    Young girl, don’t cry, I’ll be right here
    When your world starts to fall
    Yea
    Aaa
    Yea
    (Listen)
    (Listen)
    Oh yea
    (Listen)
    Naa naa naa
    (Listen)
    {Listen}
    Ohh yea
    {Listen}
    Hmm hmm
    {Listen}
    Yea
    {Listen}

    An EXCELLENT song I just got into. I dedicate this song to my dog, my two year old niece, my mother, Madonna, and Whitney Houston. Ones who I love and can never do without. Ones who make life worth living, and create an atmosphere that I can always go to when I’m alone.

    Whitney Houston, “My Love is Your Love” (1999):

    (clap your hands, ya’ll it’ alright) (4 times)

    If tomorrow is a judgement day (sing mommy)
    And I’m standin’ on the front line
    And the Lord ask me what I did with my life
    I will say I spent it with you

    If I wake up in World War 3
    I see destruction and poverty
    And I feel like I want to go home
    It’s okay if you comin’ with me

    (clap your hands, ya’ll it’s alright) (4 times)

    ‘Cause your love is my love
    and my love is your love
    It would take an eternity to break us
    And the chains of Amistad couldn’t hold us (2 times)

    (clap your hands, ya’ll it’s alright) (2 times)

    If I lose my fame and fortune
    And I’m homeless on the street
    And I’m sleepin’ in Grand Central Station
    It’s okay if you’re sleepin’ with me

    (clap your hands, ya’ll its alright….) (2 times)

    As the years they pass us by
    we stay young through each other’s eyes
    And no matter how old we get
    It’s okay as long as I got you babe

    (clap your hands, ya’ll it’s alright) (2 times)

    ‘Cause your love is my love
    and my love is your love
    It would take an eternity to break us
    And the chains of Amistad couldn’t hold us (2 times)

    If I should die this very day
    Don’t cry, cause on earth we wasn’t meant to stay
    And no matter what people say
    I’ll be waiting for you after judgement day

    ‘Cause your love is my love
    and my love is your love
    It would take an eternity to break us
    And the chains of Amistad couldn’t hold us (2 times)

    “Oh, Maker” Janelle Monáe

    I hear the drizzle of the rain

    It’s falling from my window

    And in the corners of my mind

    I hope that I’ll get to see you again

    La da die da die da die da die my friend
     
    I hear the colors in the flowers

    Just like the candle snuffed at dawn

    You’re here, you’re near,
    you’re there and then you’re gone


    La da die da die da die da die
     
    Suffering in sinking sand

    All the hurt

    See I’m really lost baby


    We suffered a rare, rare blue


    So much hurt


    On this earth

    But you loved me

    And I really dared to love you too

    Perhaps what I mean to say is


    Is that it’s amazing that your love was mine
     
    Oh, Maker tell me did you know

    This love would burn so yellow


    Becoming orange and in its time

    Explode from grey to black then bloody wine


    La da die da die da die da die
     
    Oh, Maker have you ever loved?

    Or known just what it was?

    I can’t imagine the bitter end

    Of all the beauty that we’re living in?
     
    Suffering in sinking sand

    All the hurt

    See I’m really lost baby


    We suffered a rare, rare blue


    So much hurt


    On this earth


    But you loved me


    And I really dared to love you too


    Perhaps what I mean to say 


    Is that it’s amazing that your love was mine
