• Lyrics

    From the heart-breakingly beautiful to the deliciously sad and everything in between...

    "Follow me down to the valley below, you know
    Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul...
    My David don't you worry
    This cold world is not for you.
    So rest your head upon me
    I have strength to carry you."
    Lazarus


    "Work away today, work away tomorrow.
    Never comes the day for my love and me.
    I feel her gently sighing as the evening slips away.
    If only you knew what's inside of me now
    You wouldn't want to know me somehow,
    But
    You will love me tonight,
    We alone will be alright,
    In the end"
    Never Comes the Day

    "I'm left behind
    Like all the others
    Some fall for you
    It doesn't make much difference if they do"

    Anathema - Anyone, Anywhere

    No one seems to care anymore
    (as) I wander through this night all alone
    No one feels the pain I have inside
    Looking at this world through my eyes

    No one really cares where I go
    Searching to feel warmth forever more
    The wheels of life they turn without me
    Now you are gone... eternally

    No...
    Don't leave me here
    The dream carries (me) on
    Inside
    I know...
    Its not too late
    Lost moments blown away
    Tonight

    [Chorus]
    Mankind, with your heresy
    Can't you see that this is killing me
    There's no one in this life
    To be here with me at my side

  • The heart-breakingly beautiful to the deliciously sad and everything in between... all rolled into one!

    Marillion - Out Of This World (1999 Digital Remaster)

    Three hundred miles an hour on water
    In your purpose-built machine
    No one dared to call a boat
    Screaming blue
    Out of this world
    Make history
    This is your day
    Blue Bird

    At such speeds, things fly

    What did she say?
    I know the pain of too much tenderness
    Wondering when or if you'll come back again
    Wanting to live for you
    And being banned from giving

    But only love will turn you around
    Only love will turn you around
    Only love
    Only love will turn you around
    So we live you and I
    Either side of the edge
    And we run and we scream
    With the dilated stare
    Of obsession and dreaming
    What the hell do we want
    Is it only to go
    Where nobody has gone
    A better way than the herd
    Sing a different song
    Till you're running the ledge
    To the gasp from the crowd
    Spinning round in your head
    Everything that she said

  • Thanks for the lyrics so far, guys! Some great ones, for sure...

  • And all my sorrows awaken
    And all my fears run down
    I turn myself into an angel
    I run myself into the ground

    I'm on my own I'm sure I'll feel it now
    I'm on my own I'm sure I'll know it now
    I'm on my own I'm sure I'll feel it now
    I'm on my own I'm sure I'll know it now

    And all the reasons invading
    Twist and turn my aching soul
    I leave myself behind in pieces
    I know you'll need them when I'm gone

    I'm on my own I'm sure I'll know it now
    I'm on my own I'm sure I'll feel it now

    I'll never see again
    I'll never see again
    The worst has come I'm fallin' in
    I'll never see again
    I'll never see again
    The worst has come I'm fallin' in

    I'm on my own I'm sure I'll feel it now
    I'm on my own I'm sure I'll know it now
    I'm on my own I'm sure I'll feel it now
    I'm on my own I'm sure I'll know it now

    Feel It Now
    just a very simple, sad song.

  • The Smashing Pumpkins - Disarm

    Disarm you with a smile
    And cut you like you want me to
    Cut that little child
    Inside of me and such a part of you
    Ooh, the years burn

    I used to be a little boy
    So old in my shoes
    And what I choose is my choice
    Whats a boy supposed to do?
    The killer in me is the killer in you
    My love
    I send this smile over to you

    Disarm you with a smile
    And leave you like they left me here
    To wither in denial
    The bitterness of one whos left alone
    Ooh, the years burn
    Ooh, the years burn, burn, burn

    I used to be a little boy
    So old in my shoes
    And what I choose is my voice
    Whats a boy supposed to do?
    The killer in me is the killer in you
    My love
    I send this smile over to you

    The killer in me is the killer in you
    Send this smile over to you
    The killer in me is the killer in you
    Send this smile over to you
    The killer in me is the killer in you
    Send this smile over to you

  • insomnium - Daughter of the moon

    Trail amidst the snow-clad trees, winding is the way
    Sunless is the path we roam, bitter is the air we breathe
    Fell is the icy blast, coming from the hills
    Blowing through my ailing heart, wailing in the emptiness inside

    Vanished is the light we had, hidden deep in rimy soil
    Bereft of us the one we cherished, lost for ever our love

    Still at night I see her figure
    Flickering on moonlit glades
    But passing is the hope she's giving
    Just a faintest breath of air and she's gone again

    The clouds are moving heavily, across the livid sky
    Yonder the hues are darkening, slowly turning grey to black
    For the two who stray in dusk, all hope is long since gone
    Cruel is the winter's reign, merciless the grasp of despair

    For what mirth there is left in life for a motherless son
    What solace in this world for a widower to find

    Slender the shape in night, unbearable the beauty
    Shining in the silvery light, watching me with wistful eyes
    Evanescent this vision, unattainable this illusion

    But an image in my troubled dreams, hewn out of yearning and rue

  • Thanks again to everyone for sharing... I love all of these.

    OpethWindowpane

    Blank face in the windowpane
    Made clear in seconds of light
    Disappears and returns again
    Counting hours, searching the night

    Might be waiting for someone
    Might be there for us to see
    Might be in need of talking
    Might be staring directly at me

    Inside plays a lullaby
    Slurred voice over children cries
    On the inside

    Haunting loneliness in the eye
    Skin covering a secret scar
    His hand is waving a goodbye
    There's no response or action returned

    There is deep prejudice in me
    Outshines all reason inside
    Given dreams all ridden with pain
    And projected unto the last

  • Hey you rotting in your alcoholic shell
    Banging on the walls of your intoxicated mind
    Do you ever wonder why you were left alone
    As your heart grew colder and finally turned to stone

    Did I punish you for dreaming?
    Did I break your heart and leave you crying?
    Do you ever dream of escaping...
    Don't you ever dream of escaping?

    Pathetic oblivion
    Forgotten hopes buried in your soul's lonely grave
    Pathetic oblivion
    Remember how you were before you locked your heart away

    Did I punish you for dreaming?
    Did I break your heart and leave you crying?
    Do you ever dream of escaping...
    Don't you ever dream of escaping?

    Antimatter - The Freak Show

    We've worked it out, figured out what its all about
    Don't retreat but don't be seen, Let nothing come between
    No more lazy days, what rate do they pay?
    Here's a knife, carve a life. As we plot your downfall in the nearest aisle

    They're nailing up the coffin but you're smiling as you go
    Coining in to nothing, it's all part of the freak show
    Walk in my shadow
    Ritual exclusion is just a part of everything
    And tolerance depends upon the song you sing
    Who's poison arrow?
    And if you dance, you command no more respect
    Now we'll have to find some other way to keep the children safe
    Eve's been at the drawing board to segregate the human race
    Falling from an altercation, you're put in a situation
    Denied access to the one thing bound to stop you going under
    Now you'll have to face tomorrow with no hope to beg or borrow
    Once you count it up you know you're gonna find it's not enough
    Your only hope's to cook the books, Pray the man don't choose to look you up

  • I once upon a time
    Carried a burden inside
    Some will ask goodbye
    A broken line but underlined
    There's an ocean of sorrow in you

    Sorrow in me

    Saw movement in their eyes
    Said I no longer knew the way
    Given up the ghost
    A passing minds and its a fear
    In the wait for redemption ahead

    Waiting to fade

    Fading again

    If death should take me now
    Count my mistakes and let me through
    Whisper in my ear
    Taken more than we've received
    And the ocean of sorrow is you

    OpethBurden

  • Warning - Faces

    I want to be master of my own emotions with a fire that fills me,
    but I don't understand myself and I don't know, I don't know what my heart is anymore.
    I don't want to be standing in this war through pity and responsibility.
    So come into my life with your violence and pain,
    'cause I feel the depths of a love I've never known. Take a hold of my life,
    make it into one that I want it to be. Make a whole of my life, make my faces one that I want you to see.
    I can't stand to see confusion in your eyes, when I drift away sometimes,
    could I ever be more faithless in my life?

  • Katatonia - July

    You come clean
    Waves collide now
    Defenseless numb arms
    And no voice of reason

    So how come you invited me too
    You knew I wanted you
    You glide above
    So this night belongs to you
    I know this isn't through
    Are you dead to love

    I see the bright lights
    It's the month of July
    It's violent here
    Why have you left me
    If only you could stay
    And keep me in
    It's violent here
    Why did you run from me

    Kaki King - Life Being What It Is

    You put a note in my pocket
    said, "Be good to yourself"
    And that was all.

    Life being what it is,
    We all dream of revenge.
    Open your eyes for a second
    Just to roll them at me.
    I stared straight into the sun...
    something to concentrate on....

  • Linkin Park - My{Dsmbr

    This is my December
    This is my time of the year
    This is my December
    This is all so clear

    Just wish that I didn’t feel
    Like there was something I missed
    Just wish that I didn’t feel
    Like there was something I missed

    This is my December
    This is my snow-covered home
    This is my December
    This is me alone

    And I
    Just wish that I didn’t feel
    Like there was something I missed
    And I
    Take back all the things I said
    To make you feel like that
    And I
    Just wish that I didn’t feel
    Like there was something I missed
    And I
    Take back all the things I said to you

    And I’d give it all away
    Just to have somewhere to go to
    Give it all away
    To have someone to come home to

    This is my December
    These are my snow-covered trees
    This is my December
    This is all I need

    And I
    Just wish that I didn’t feel
    Like there was something I missed
    And I
    Take back all the things I said
    To make you feel like that
    And I
    Just wish that I didn’t feel
    Like there was something I missed
    And I
    Take back all the things that I said to you

    And I’d give it all away
    Just to have somewhere to go to
    Give it all away
    To have someone to come home to

    This is my December
    This is my time of the year
    This is my December
    This is all so clear

    Give it all away
    Just to have somewhere to go to
    Give it all away
    To have someone to come home to

    Give it all away
    Just to have somewhere to go to
    Give it all away
    To have someone to come home to

  • Wearing the inside out

    These are the lyrics from 'Wearing the inside out', written by Rick Wright for Pink Floyd last album.The song always makes me very emotional......

    From morning to night I stayed out of sight
    Didnt recognise what Id become
    No more than alive Id barely survive
    In a word...overrun

    Wont hear a sound
    From my mouth
    Ive spent too long
    On the inside out
    My skin is cold
    To the human touch
    This bleeding hearts
    Not beating much

    I murmured a vow of silence and now
    I dont even hear when I think aloud
    Extinguished by light I turn on the night
    Wear its darkness with an empty smile

    Im creeping back to life
    My nervous system all away
    Im wearing the inside out

    Look at him now
    Hes paler somehow
    But hes coming round
    Hes starting to choke
    Its been so long since he spoke
    Well he can have the words right from my mouth

    And with these words I can see
    Clear through the clouds that covered me
    Just give it time then speak my name
    Now we can hear ourselves again

    Im holding out
    For the day
    When all the clouds
    Have blown away
    Im with you now
    Can speak your name
    Now we can hear
    Ourselves again

    Hes curled into the corner
    But still the screen is flickering
    With an endless stream of garbage to
    ...curse the place
    In a sea of random images
    The self-destructing animal
    Waiting for the waves to break

    Hes standing on the threshold
    Caught in fiery anger
    And hurled into the furnace hell
    ...curse the place
    Hes torn in all directions
    And the screen is still flickering
    Waiting for the flames to break

  • When this freedom stains my coat
    With the winter in my throat
    When I'm lost I dig the dirt
    When I fall I drive the hearse

    And silence is another way of saying what I wanna say
    And lying is another way of hoping it will go away
    And you were always my mistake...

    Given time I fix the roof
    Given cash I speak the truth

    And silence is another way of saying what I wanna say
    And lying is another way of hoping it will go away
    And you were always my mistake...

    When I'm down I drive the hearse

    When this boredom wears me out
    Then the sky begins to cloud
    Sleeping with my ball and chain
    When she cries I take love late

    And pride is just another way of trying to live with my mistakes
    Denial is a better way of getting through another day
    And silence is another way of saying what I wanna say
    And lying is another way of hoping it will go away
    And you were always my mistake...

    Porcupine Tree-I Drive the Hearse

  • Walk in silence,
    Dont walk away, in silence.
    See the danger,
    Always danger,
    Endless talking,
    Life rebuilding,
    Dont walk away.

    Walk in silence,
    Dont turn away, in silence.
    Your confusion,
    My illusion,
    Worn like a mask of self-hate,
    Confronts and then dies.
    Dont walk away.

    People like you find it easy,
    Naked to see,
    Walking on air.
    Hunting by the rivers,
    Through the streets,
    Every corner abandoned too soon,
    Set down with due care.
    Dont walk away in silence,
    Dont walk away.

    Porcupine Tree - Kneel and Disconnect

    Kneel and disconnect and
    waste another year.
    Fill the application. Start a new career.

  • The Cure - Faith

    Catch me if I fall
    I'm losing hold
    I can't just carry on this way
    And every time
    I turn away
    Lose another blind game
    The idea of perfection holds me
    Suddenly I see you change
    Everything at once
    The same
    But the mountain never moves

    Rape me like a child
    Christened in blood
    Painted like an unknown saint
    There's nothing left but hope
    Your voice is dead
    And old
    And always empty
    Trust in me through closing years
    Perfect moments wait
    If only we could stay
    Please
    Say the right words
    Or cry like the stone white clown
    And stand forever
    Lost forever in a happy crowd

    No one lifts their hands
    No one lifts their eyes
    Justified with empty words
    The party just gets better and better

    I went away alone
    With nothing left
    But faith

    The Cure Trust
    There is no-one left in the world
    That I can hold onto
    There is really no-one left at all
    There is only you
    And if you leave me now
    You leave all that we were
    Undone
    There is really no-one left
    You are the only one

    And still the hardest part for you
    To put your trust in me
    I love you more than I can say
    Why won't you just believe?

  • Because today is my birthday...

    But after a while
    You realize time flies
    And the best thing that you can do
    Is take whatever comes to you

  • Katatonia - Liberation

    sold are the eyes I have
    and cold is the wait for nothing
    and dark
    I write my name in a long line
    how is it possible for you to try

    it's coming true
    I've changed my name but I will pass it on to you

    journey
    no present thoughts
    coming day
    darkest wave

    it's coming true
    I've changed my name but I will pass it on to you
    our thoughts entwined
    you speak
    and I hear other words behind

    I wave from the edge of the pier
    and fade into the dreams of sleepers
    marked
    I have had this stain for a long time
    we called on the bird long before
