    Heya! I just wanna know, what is your fave song? I would like the lyrics and a link to it on youtube. I'll start.


    Omnia Sol (Let your heart be staid)
    By Z. Randall Stroop


    Somewhere far from nowhere, I grew both strong and tall…
    Longing to become, but knowing not the path at all!
    But the footprints of the winter melted to fields of spring;
    One last embrace before I cross the threshold: To life we sing!


    O stay your soul and leave my heart its song!
    O stay your hand; the journey may be long!
    And when we part, and sorrow can’t be sway’d….
    Remember when, and let your heart be staid.

    Omnia sol temperat,
    Absens in remota.
    Ama me fideliter,
    Fidem mean noto.

    Weave the dance and raise the chorus; grieve no more…
    Through the strength of Orion, find refuge from the shore!
    Let courage be your oar, let passion be your sail;
    Wisdom and truth will guide your deep heart’s yearning, though all travail!

    O stay your soul and leave my heart its song!
    O stay your hand; the journey may be long!
    And when we part, and sorrow can’t be sway’d…
    Remember when, and let your heart be staid.

    Omnia sol temperat,
    Absens in remota.
    Ama me fideliter,
    Fidem mean noto.

    Omnia sol temperat, (Ah ah ah ah ah ma)
    And when we part, and sorrow can’t be sway’d…
    Remember when…
    Remember when…
    And let your heart be staid… Be staid.

    Hey Jude - The Beatles.

    Hey Jude, don't make it bad
    Take a sad song and make it better
    Remember to let her into your heart
    Then you can start to make it better

    Hey Jude, don't be afraid
    You were made to go out and get her
    The minute you let her under your skin
    Then you begin to make it better

    And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain
    Don't carry the world upon your shoulders
    For well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool
    By making his world a little colder
    Na na na, na na, na na na na

    Hey Jude, don't let me down
    You have found her, now go and get her
    Remember to let her into your heart
    Then you can start to make it better

    So let it out and let it in, hey Jude, begin
    You're waiting for someone to perform with
    And don't you know that it's just you? Hey Jude, you'll do
    The movement you need is on your shoulder
    Na na na, na na, na na na na, yeah

    Hey Jude, don't make it bad
    Take a sad song and make it better
    Remember to let her under your skin
    Then you begin to make it better
    Better, better, better, better, better, oh!

    Na na na, na-na na na
    Na-na na na, hey Jude
    Na na na, na-na na na
    Na-na na na, hey Jude

    Na na na, na-na na na
    Na-na na na, hey Jude
    Na na na, na-na na na
    Na-na na na, hey Jude

    Na na na, na-na na na
    Na-na na na, hey Jude
    Na na na, na-na na na
    Na-na na na, hey Jude

    I have several favorites, but here's one:

    Dogs - Pink Floyd

    (The album "Animals" is amazing. I recommend it.)

    You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need.
    You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street,
    You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed.
    And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight,
    You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking.

    And after a while, you can work on points for style.
    Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
    A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.
    You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
    So that when they turn their backs on you,
    You'll get the chance to put the knife in.

    You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder.
    You know it's going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you
    get older.
    And in the end you'll pack up and fly down south,
    Hide your head in the sand,
    Just another sad old man,
    All alone and dying of cancer.

    And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest you have sown.
    And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone.
    And it's too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw
    around.
    So have a good drown, as you go down, all alone,
    Dragged down by the stone.

    I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused.
    Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used.
    Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise.
    If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this
    maze?

    Deaf, dumb, and blind, you just keep on pretending
    That everyone's expendable and no-one has a real friend.
    And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner
    And everything's done under the sun,
    And you believe at heart, everyone's a killer.

    Who was born in a house full of pain.
    Who was trained not to spit in the fan.
    Who was told what to do by the man.
    Who was broken by trained personnel.
    Who was fitted with collar and chain.
    Who was given a pat on the back.
    Who was breaking away from the pack.
    Who was only a stranger at home.
    Who was ground down in the end.
    Who was found dead on the phone.
    Who was dragged down by the stone.

    Long before I ever saw your face
    I got to know you in a dream
    But things aren't always what they seem
    You learn along the way

    I just can't stop myself from breaking down
    It's just no good unless you come around
    I turn into a monster
    all my friends agree

    So goodnight
    I'm going to bed
    I'm falling upstairs to meet you
    I wake up with memories in my head
    I'm someone else instead
    Fallin' upstairs to you

    You came to me from some secret place
    You're beautiful and strange to me
    Just like an antique melody
    Too sad for me to play

    I hope you'll wait for me behind closed eyes
    I know I'll search for you all through the night
    'Till when the dawn breaks in and throws it's light
    Around the room

    Goodnight
    I'm going to bed
    I'm falling upstairs to meet you
    I wake up with memories in my head
    I'm somewhere else instead
    Falling upstairs to you

    My ultimate favorite song. <3

    Distant flickering, greener scenery.
    This weather's bringing it all back again.
    Great adventures, faces and condensation.
    I'm going outside to take it all in.

    You say too late to start, got your heart in a headlock,
    I don't believe any of it.
    You say too late to start, with your heart in a headlock,
    You know you're better than this.

    We're a different pair, do something out of step.
    Throw a stranger an unexpected smile...with big intention.
    Still posted at your station.
    Always on about the day it should have flied.

    You say too late to start, got your heart in a headlock,
    I don't believe any of it.
    You say too late to start, with your heart in a headlock,
    You know you're better than this.

    Afraid to start, got your heart in a headlock,
    I don't believe any of it.
    You say too late to start, with your heart in a headlock,
    You know you're better than this.

    Been walking, you've been hiding,
    And you look half dead half the time.
    Monitoring you, like machines do,
    You've still got it, I'm just keeping an eye

    I've been walking, you've been hiding,
    And you look half dead half the time.
    Monitoring you, like machines do,
    You've still got it, I'm just keeping an eye
    So what, don't care, will not, the end

    You know you're better than this

    I'll make you start, got your heart in a headlock,
    I don't believe any of it.
    You say too late to start, with your heart in a headlock,
    You know you're better than this.

    Afraid to start, got your heart in a headlock,
    I don't believe any of it.
    You say too late to start, with your heart in a headlock,
    You know you're better than this.

    This is my #1 favorite song. It's awesome [​IMG]

    Terrible Things by Mayday Parade

    By the time I was your age, I'd give anything
    To fall in love truly, was all I could think
    That's when I met your mother, the girl of my dreams
    The most beautiful woman, that I'd ever seen

    She said, "Boy can I tell you a wonderful thing?
    I can't help but notice, you're staring at me.
    I know I shouldn't say this, but I really believe
    I can tell by your eyes that you're in love with me"

    Now son, I'm only telling you this...
    Because life, can do terrible things

    Now most of the time, we'd had too much to drink
    And we'd laugh at the stars and we'd share everything
    Too young to notice, and too dumb to care
    Love was a story, that couldn't compare

    I said, "Girl, can I tell you a wonderful thing?
    I made you a present with paper and string.
    Open with care now, I'm asking you, please.
    You know that I love you, will you marry me?"

    Now son, I'm only telling you this...
    Because life, can do terrible things
    You'll learn, one day, I'll hope and I'll pray
    That God, shows you differently

    She said, "Boy can I tell you, a terrible thing?
    It seems that I'm sick and I've only got weeks.
    Please, don't be sad now, I really believe
    You were the greatest thing that ever happened to me"

    Slow, so slow
    I fell to the ground, on my knees

    So don't fall in love, there's just too much to lose
    If given the choice, then, I'm begging you, choose
    To walk away, walk away, don't let her get you.
    I can't bear to see the same happen to you.

    Now son, I'm only telling you this...
    ...Because life, can do terrible things



    I hope you like this song..I LOVE it.

    DRIFTING
    By 4 Non Blondes (Linda Perry vocals)


    What a wonderful hesitation
    Who would bear to feel sorry for me
    Dropped another pill just to calm me
    Collapsed to my knees and fell fast into sleep

    There I was drifting
    Way out into the sunshine
    Expecting to crash but I'm tied to a string
    Look at me I'm a tangled puppet
    I might be a mess but I sure can survive

    Find myself awake counting sad days
    1-2-3 that's too many for me
    Dropped another pill just to find me
    Reached for my hand
    But It was already there

    Then I started believin'
    That I fell out of a tiny raindrop
    That lost its way when it decided to roam
    Chasing me was a hungry dweller
    But I had escaped it by pretending to die

    Come follow me you won't expect the illusion
    You'll see, it's my imagination
    Hand me your eyes
    I will put them in front of mine
    You'll see a little better
    You'll see a little better

    What a wonderful destination
    Where I am now
    I can no longer see
    Dropped another pill just to kill me
    Collapsed to my knees
    And fell fast into sleep

    There I was drifting
    Way out into the sunshine
    Expecting to crash but I'm tied to a string
    Look at me I'm a tangled puppet
    I might be a mess but I sure can survive
    But I had escaped it by pretending to die........

    Bohemian Raphsody ~ Queen (Of course [​IMG] )

    Is this the real life?
    Is this just fantasy?
    Caught in a landslide,
    No escape from reality
    Open your eyes,
    Look up to the skies and see,
    I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
    Because I'm easy come, easy go,
    Little high, little low,
    Any way the wind blows doesn't really matter to
    me, to me

    Mama,
    I just killed a man,
    Put a gun against his head, pulled my trigger
    now he's dead
    Mama... life had just begun,
    But now I've gone and thrown it all away
    Mamaaaaa oooh,
    Didn't mean to make you cry,
    If I'm not back again this time tomorrow,
    Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters

    Too late, my time has come,
    Sends shivers down my spine, body's aching all
    the time
    Goodbye, ev'rybody, I've got to go,
    Got to leave you all behind and face the truth
    Mamaaaaa oooh,
    I don't want to die,
    I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

    I see a little silhouetto of a man,
    Scaramouche! Scaramouche! will you do the
    Fandango?!

    Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening me!
    Galileo, Galileo
    Galileo, Galileo
    Galileo, Figaro - magnifico

    I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me
    He's just a poor boy from a poor family,
    Spare him his life from this monstrosity!
    Easy come, easy go, will you let me go
    Bismilah! No, we will not let you go
    (Let him go!) Bismilah! We will not let you go
    (Let him go!) Bismilah! We will not let you go
    (Let me go) Will not let you go
    (Let me go)(Never) Never let you go
    (Let me go) Never let you go (Let me go) Ah
    No, no, no, no, no, no, no
    Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia, let me go
    Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me,
    for meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    So you think you can stop me and spit in my
    eye?!?!
    So you think you can love me and leave me to
    die?!?!
    Oh, baby, can't do this to me, baby,
    Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta
    here!


    (Epic guitar solo)

    Nothing really matters, Anyone can see,
    Nothing really matters,
    Nothing really matters to me...

    Any way the wind blows...

    Smile ~ Uncle Kracker

    You're better then the best
    I'm lucky just to linger in your light
    Cooler than the flip side
    Of my pillow, that's right

    Completely unaware
    Nothing can compare to where
    You send me, lets me know that it's okay
    Yeah, it's okay
    And the moments where my good times start to fade

    You make me smile like the sun, fall out of bed
    Sing like bird, dizzy in my head
    Spin like a record, crazy on a Sunday night

    You make me dance like a fool, forget how to breathe
    Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
    Just the thought of you can drive me wild
    Oh, you make me smile

    Even when you're gone,
    Somehow you come along just like
    A flower pokin' through the sidewalk crack
    And just like that
    You steal away the rain, and just like that

    You make me smile like the sun, fall out of bed
    Sing like bird, dizzy in my head
    Spin like a record, crazy on a Sunday night

    You make me dance like a fool, forget how to breathe
    Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
    Just the thought of you can drive me wild
    Oh, you make me smile

    Don't know how I lived without you
    'Cause every time that I get around you
    I see the best of me inside your eyes
    You make me smile

    You make me dance like a fool, forget how to breathe
    Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
    Just the thought of you can drive me wild

    You make me smile like the sun, fall out of bed
    Sing like bird, dizzy in my head
    Spin like a record, crazy on a Sunday night

    You make me dance like a fool, forget how to breathe
    Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
    Just the thought of you can drive me wild
    Oh, you make me smile
    (Oh, you make me smile)
    Oh, you make me smile
    (Oh, you make me smile)
    Oh, you make me smile
