    What is your perfect verse? Something Mr. Sumner wrote. It can be a verse, a strophe, whole lyrics...

    Mine is: "A thought that never changes remains a stupid lie." (Your silent face)

    You've got to look at life the way it oughta be
    Looking at the stars from underneath the tree
    There's a world inside and a world out there
    With that on tv you just don't care

    They've got violence, wars and killing too
    All shrunk down in a two-foot tube
    But out there the world is a beautiful place
    With mountains, lakes and the human race
    And this is where I wanna be
    And this is what I wanna do

    From Krafty, which I'm listening to rite now, love it!!!!
  1.  
    Something about the song "Mesh", especially these last lines of the song:

    What do they want with me?
    I don't know
    Nobody knows
    Nobody even tries
    To find out what they want to know"
  2.  
    It was very hard for me to choose.....

    I would like a place I could call my own
    Have a conversation on the telephone
    Wake up every day that would be a start
    I would not complain of my wounded heart

    I was upset you see
    Almost all the time
    You used to be a stranger
    Now you are mine

    I wouldnt even trust you
    I've not got much to give
    Were dealing in the limits
    And we dont know who with
    You may think that I'm out of hand
    That I'm naive, I'll understand
    On this occasion, its not true
    Look at me, I'm not you

    (OMG, I've just realized... Regret is just about me right now...)

    Another one from my faves: "Guilt is a useless emotion". I mean it!

    Every second counts
    When I am with you
    I think you are a pig
    You should be in a zoo
    I guess I should've known
    I'd end up on my own
    Every second counts when I am with you
    Every second counts

    Every little counts
    When I am with you
    You make me feel so good
    I never felt so new
    I saw you long ago
    Though you never let it show
    Every little counts when I am with you

    Every little counts when I am with you

    Every second counts
    When I am with you
    Even though you're stupid
    I still follow you
    The smile upon your face,
    It always stays in place
    Every second counts when I am with you

    Every second counts when I am with you
    Every second...

    These lyrics are interesting, I always wondered what the meaning behind them was.
  3.  
    "Face Up" reminds me of someone that I still harbor a lot of resentment towards because he tried to hold me down and make me feel bad about myself. It always makes me smile oddly.

    As we get old, we lose our place
    Reflecting back the worlds disgrace
    I feel so low, I feel so humble
    Sometimes in life we take a tumble
    Dont let anybody tell you that youre no good
    Cause you know they would
    Dont let anybody tell you what you should do
    Cause its not that way and...

    Oh, how I cannot bear the thought of you
    I said, oh, how I cannot bear the thought of you
    We were young and we were pure
    And life was just an open door
    I said oh, oh, how I cannot bear the thought of you

    You were me and I was you
    This world of ours it felt brand new
    You took me a little further...
    I heard it all before, Ive heard it all before
    I cant hear it anymore
    Your hair was long, your eyes was blue
    Guess what Im gonna do to you

    All the way!

    It doesn't take a genius
    To tell me what I am
    Or lecture me with poetry
    And tell me that I can
    I don't remember
    What happened yesterday
    But I don't give a damn about
    What all those people say

    It takes years to find the nerve
    To be apart from what you've done
    To find the truth inside yourself
    And not depend on anyone
    It takes years to find the nerve
    To be apart from what you've done
    To find the truth inside yourself
    And not depend on anyone

    It don't take no Houdini
    To tell me what I am
    Parasites and literasites
    They'd burn me if they can
    But I don't give a damn about
    What those people say
    They pick you up and kick you out
    They hurt you every day

    It takes years to find the nerve
    To be apart from what you've done
    To find the truth inside yourself
    And not depend on anyone
    It takes years to find the nerve
    To be apart from what you've done
    To find the truth inside yourself
    And not depend on anyone

    Yeeeeeeesssssssss! Way to go, Angels! :face-angel:

    "Every second counts
    When I am with you

    I don't mind not to be the person who inspired him on this! Once I've read he just realized about how funny the lyrics were at the recording session and the laugh was so hilarious that they decided to keep it.

    Face up... Yeah, Liz, I bet we all have this person at some moment in our lives... I had already.

    All the way. Great song. "...It takes years to find the nerve/To be apart from what you've done..." . Let me guess... Ian?

    These days I had this argument with someone I care. I'm passing by a Love Less moment: " ...Can't you see/ why don't you look at me/ it's not your right to be/ so much my enemy...":face-crying:

    Oh, the state of the nation, state of the nation
    It's causing death inflation
    ----State of the Nation

    I like walking in the park
    When it gets late at night
    I move round in the dark
    And leave when it gets light
    I sit around by day
    Tied up in chains so tight
    These crazy words of mine
    So wrong they could be right

    What do I get out of this
    I always try, I always miss
    One of these days you'll go back to your home
    You won't even notice that you are alone
    One of these days when you sit by yourself
    You'll realise you can't shaft without someone else
    In the end you will submit
    It's got to hurt you a little bit
    ---Subculture

    Suicide is not an option
    ---Flicker, by Electronic

    You're the architect of your own excess
    Join the queue at the start of the line
    ---Prodigal Son, by Electronic

    There used to be a way but there ain't no more
    Tell me why because we need it
    I used to run away but I can't no more
    'Cause I feel that I can beat it
    There used to be a way but there ain't no more
    ---Tighten Up, by Electronic

    But what I think goes on in this world
    For a mother and a father and a boy and a girl
    Is that the more you earn, the less you learn
    There's a fire in life where we will burn
    ---Broken Promise

    We're strong, we do our thing
    Let the world cry, watch the birds sing
    Give me the freedom, I need to recover
    Words cannot heal, when a line is your lover
    ---Young Offender

    Without you they'll never know
    Without you my life won't grow
    Without you they'll never show
    Without you the night won't go
    Without you I'm left alone
    Without you I'm on my own
    Without you my life's a waste
    Just for you I wrap my face
    Without you I'm left alone
    Without you I'm on my own
    Without you I lay here in pain
    Without you I've gone insane

    Whatever you may think of me
    Don't ever take my dignity (x4)
    Whatever you may do to me
    Don't crucify my dignity

    Getting Away with it


    I've been walking in the rain just to get wet on purpose
    I've been forcing myself not to
    forget just to feel worse
    I've been getting away with it all
    my life (getting away)
    However I look it's clear to see
    That I love you more than you love me
    However I look it's clear to see
    I love you more than you love me
    I hate that mirror, it makes me feel so worthless
    I'm an original sinner but when I'm
    with you I couldn't care less
    I've been getting away with it all my life
    Getting away with it all my life
    However I look it's clear to see
    I love you more than you love me
    However I look it's clear to see
    [ Find more Lyrics at www.mp3lyrics.org/PJo ]
    I love you more than you love me
    I love you more than you love me
    More than you love me
    I thought I gave up falling in love a long long time ago
    I guess I like it but I can't tell you,
    you shouldn't really know
    And it's been true all my life
    Yes, it's been true all my life

    I've been talking to myself just to
    suggest that I'm selfish
    (Getting ahead)
    I've been trying to impress that more
    is less and I'm repressed
    (I should do what he said)
    However I look it's clear to see
    That I love you more than you love me
    However I look it's clear to see
    I love you more than you love me
    I love you more than you love me
    I love you more than you love me
    Getting away with it...

    Run Wild
    "Open hearts
    Empty spaces
    Dusty roads
    To distant places
    But all the time
    When I'm alone
    I think of you
    And how you've grown

    Far and wide
    Sweet and simple
    Jehovah knows
    That I've been sinful
    But if Jesus comes to take your hand
    I won't let go, I won't let go

    I'm not cruel
    And you're not evil
    And we're not like
    All those stupid people
    Who can't decide
    Which book to read
    Unless the paper
    Sows deceit

    You're the kind of person
    That I've always wanted to be with
    Well you're really cool
    And you always say the right things to me
    But now I'll tell you something
    From my heart beats for you deep inside
    You'll never be a burden
    And my love for you will never die,
    never die, never die, never die, never die
    But if Jesus comes to take your hand
    I won't let go, I won't let go
    But if Jesus comes to take your hand
    I won't let go, I won't let go

    Good times around the corner
    Good times around the corner
    Good times around the corner
    I swear it's getting warmer
    Good times around the corner
    Good times around the corner
    Good times around the corner
    I'm gonna live 'til I die
    I'm gonna live to get high"

    I love the blunt, to the point lyrics....makes it such a sad song


    "Some Distant Memory"

    I don't know
    If we could get lost in a city this size if we wanted to
    And I don't know
    If I could survive without seeing you
    And every time I see your face
    I feel out of place

    It's so easy, why are you leaving?
    Is it just because I've grown afraid of you?
    I wish we were at the beginning
    It would be so good to be with you

    See that girl? She's over there
    I don't need her, she don't care
    I could be one in a million
    It would be so good to start again

    Pretending not to see his gun,

    Me too, BLT is like my theme song.

    It was january, 1963
    When johnny came home with a gift for me
    He said I bought it for you because I love you
    And I bought it for you because it's your birthday, too
    He was so very nice, he was so very kind
    To think of me at this point in time
    I used to think of him, he used think of me
    He told me to close my eyes
    My gift would be a great surprise
    I saw tears were in his eyes
    He never meant to hurt me
    Oh, god, johnny, don't point that gun at me
    There's so many ways our lives have changed
    But please, I beg, don't do this to me
    Johnny, don't point that gun at me
    Can I save my life at any price?
    For god's sake won't you listen to me?

    And though he was ashamed that he had took a life
    Johnny came home with another wife
    And he often remembered how it used to be
    Before that special occasion, 1963
    There was too many ways that you could kill someone
    Like in a love affair, when the love is gone
    He told me to close my eyes
    My gift would be a great surprise
    I saw hatred in his eyes
    He never meant to hurt me
    Oh, god, johnny, don't point that gun at me
    There's so many ways our lives have changed
    But please, I beg, don't do this to me
    Johnny, you keep on using me
    Can I change my life for any price?
    Oh, johnny, won't you listen to me?

    He told me to close my eyes
    My gift would be a great surprise
    I saw hatred in his eyes
    But he never meant to hurt me
    Oh, god, johnny, don't point that gun at me
    There's so many ways our lives have changed
    But please, I beg, don't do this to me
    Johnny, you keep on using me
    Can I change my life for any price?
    Oh, johnny, won't you listen to me?

    I just want you to be mine,
    I don't want this world to shine
    I don't want this bridge to burn
    Oh, johnny, do you miss me?
    I just want to feel for you
    I will always feel for you...

    I wonder what's the story behind 1963?

    I like so many of them, here's a few of my favourtes that I don't think we've mentioned yet:

    The things I see I can't describe
    A blind emotion I can't hide
    Are you aware of my existence
    Do you view me with indifference
    I'm walking round within a circle
    Falling down before the hurdle
    At the end of every season
    The wrong place without a reason
    - I Feel Alright by Electronic

    I walk along the street
    I look into your eyes
    How pleasant when we meet
    I'm there when you go home
    How many times before
    Could you tell I didn't care?
    When you turned your back on me
    I knew it lead nowhere
    You believe in youth
    The history of all truth
    A heart that's left at home
    Becomes a heart of stone
    - Lonesome Tonight

    I feel so extraordinary
    Something's got a hold on me
    I get this feeling I'm in motion
    A sudden sense of liberty

    Oh, I love that song! I always wondered if it was about his mother. She was handicapped plus he was an only child.

    My pick would be Turn. I love this line,"The sky is high. the road is long. Show me what I should have done." Those lines are so powerful. It just evokes so much in those two lines. The first time I heard it, it just gutted me.
