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, oh no
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
Is that the way it is?

You are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring you down, oh no
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 (Yeah)
Full of beautiful mistakes

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

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

Ooh-oh-oh, yeah
Don't you bring me down today
Yeah, ooh
Don't you bring me down
Ooh, today

In my eyes
Indisposed
In disguises no one knows
Hides the face
Lies the snake
And the sun in my disgrace
Boiling heat
Summer stench
Neath the black, the sky looks dead
Call my name
Through the cream
And I'll hear you scream again

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come
Won't you come

Stuttering
Cold and damp
Steal the warm wind, tired friend
Times are gone
For honest men
Sometimes, far too long for snakes
In my shoes
Walking sleep
In my youth, I pray to keep
Heaven send
Hell away
No one sings like you anymore

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come? (Black hole sun, black hole sun)

Hang my head
Drown my fear
Till you all just disappear

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come
Won't you come

Melissa Etheridge-I'm The Only One ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜










Please baby can't you see
My mind's a burnin' hell
I got razors a ripping and tearing and stripping
My heart apart as well
Tonight you told me
That you ache for something new
And some other woman is looking like something
That might be good for you

Go on and hold her till the screaming is gone
Go on believe her when she tells you nothing's wrong
But I'm the only one
Who'll walk across the fire for you
I'm the only one
Who'll drown in my desire for you
It's only fear that makes you run
The demons that you're hiding from
When all your promises are gone
I'm the only one

Please baby can't you see
I'm trying to explain
I've been here before and I'm locking the door
And I'm not going back again
Her eyes and arms and skin won't make it go away
You'll wake up tomorrow and wrestle the sorrow
That holds you down today

Go on and hold her till the screaming is gone
Go on believe her when she tells you nothing's wrong
But I'm the only one
Who'll walk across the fire for you
I'm the only one
Who'll drown in my desire for you
It's only fear that makes you run
The demons that you're hiding from
When all your promises are gone
I'm the only one

Go on and hold her till the screaming is gone

Go on believe her when she tells you nothing's wrong
But I'm the only one
Who'll walk across the fire for you

I'm the only one
Who'll drown in my desire for you
It's only fear that makes you run
The demons that you're hiding from
When all your promises are gone
I'm the only one

I'm the only one
Who'll drown in my desire for you
It's only fear that makes you run
The demons that you're hiding from
When all your promises are gone
I'm the only one

I'm the only one
I'm the only one

Ain't nobody is gonna love you

Ain't nobody is gonna love you

George Michael-I Can't Make You Love Me ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜











Turn down the lights
Turn down the bed
Turn down these voices
Inside my head

Lay down with me
Tell me no lies
Just hold me close
Don't patronize

Don't patronize me

'Cause I can't make you love me
If you don't
You can't make your heart feel
Something that it won't

Here in the dark
In these final hours
I will lay down my heart
And I'll feel the power

But you won't
No you won't
'And I can't make you love me
If you don't

I'll close my eyes
Then I won't see
The love you do not feel
When you're holding me

Morning will come
And I'll do what's right
Just give me 'til then
To give up this fight

And I will give up this fight

'And I can't make you love me
If you don't
You can't make your heart feel
Something that it won't

And here in the dark
In these final hours
I will lay down my heart
And I'll feel the power

But you won't
No you won't
'And I can't make you love me
If you don't

Ain't no use in you trying
It's no good for me, baby
Without love

All my tears, all these years
Everything
I believed in
Baby

Oh yeah

Someone's gonna love me

Left To Suffer-Disappoint Me :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:










Breaking me down as quickly as you build me up
And I'm still here thinking about it every day

Cause we're not built to feel pain
Start to feel nauseous when will anything fucking change
Oh
Why does it matter when we're all going to die
Why can't you ever fucking look me in the eye

Why am I the one that you've chosen
So make up you're fucking mind
You try to rewrite my reality

Blegh

There ya go just spit in my face
Keep my name in your mouth how bad does it taste
Why do you sit there and belittle me?
Oh
When you choke on your own animosity
Ah

Cause we're not built to feel pain
Start to feel nauseous when will anything fucking change
Oh
Why does it matter when we're all going to die
We're living in a lie

I always trusted you, but you
Disappoint me

A question now as the story unfolds
A never ending catacomb of a misery hole
And the devil on my shoulder says that I should be sentenced to death
Left in the cold I take my last breath

Cause we're not built to feel pain
Start to feel nauseous when will anything fucking change
Oh
Why does it matter when we're all going to die
Why can't you ever fucking look me in the eye

Breaking me down as quickly as you build me up
And I'm still here thinking about it every day

Cause we're not built to feel pain
Start to feel nauseous when will anything fucking change
Oh
Why does it matter when we're all going to die
Why can't you ever fucking look me in the eye

Why am I the one that you've chosen

Music has been helping me a little lately, so I was wondering what kind of music the rest of the forum is listening to?
Like a favorite song, artist, genre, anything really! :)

My latest obsession is definitely Sleep Tokens “take me back to Eden”, which I’ve had on repeat constantly since it came out a few days ago!
For me recently I've been thinking the music I listen to has gotten stale because I would listen to the same few songs over and over, hope playlists then do the same thing. To spice things up I decided to make a wheel spinner with every genre I could think of along with some off of Wikipedia, for a total of 471 of them, and then I spin the wheel to see what I'll get and listen for a minimum of around 10 songs, maybe more if I'm REALLY vibing with it.

It's been a nice way to dip my toes into genres I have never heard of/listened to and to bring me back to some I forgot about. One I got last night was math metal and I forgot how much I enjoy it, and I'm glad I got it on the wheel yesterday.

I'm feeling out of my mind
Oh god I feel so alive
Oh no I'm not gonna die
'Cuz I'm a psycho
I love to get attention
The tensions all I need
To feed my own insanity (to feed my own insanity)
Don't ask me for forgiveness
I'd rather watch you bleed
If it meant that I could see with clarity
Somethings awaken deep inside
It's like I'm frozen still in time
And In my head it's like I'm in a cage
I hide behind the devils eyes
I lost my faith a thousand times
And in my head it's like I'm in a cage (in a cage)
I'm feeling out of my mind
Oh god I feel so alive
Oh no I'm not gonna die
'Cuz I'm a psycho
A messiah to life
I'm feeling out of my mind
I'm going crazy
'Cuz I'm a fucking psycho
Woah, Woah
I'm a fucking psycho
You'd think I'd learn my lesson
Or quit while I'm ahead
Don't fuck with all the memories in my mind
I'm about to break down, nothing can help now
Why do I keep falling, falling to the ground
Somethings awaken deep inside
It's like I'm frozen still in time
And In my head it's like I'm in a cage
I hide behind the devils eyes
I lost my faith a thousand times
And in my head it's like I'm in a cage (in a cage)
I'm feeling out of my mind
Oh god I feel so alive
Oh no I'm not gonna die
'Cuz I'm a psycho

I'm feeling out of my mind (I'm a fucking psycho)

Better Than Ezra-Desperately Wanting :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:










Past the road to your house
That you never call home
Where they turned out your lights
Though they say you'll never know
I remember running through the wet grass
Falling a step behind
Both of us never tiring
Desperately wanting
When they pumped out your guts
Filled you full of those pills
You were never quite right
Deserving all the chills
Say the worst is over
Kicked it over again
Then they ask what went wrong
When they turn you on again
When they turn you on again
I remember running through the wet grass
Falling a step behind
Both of us never tiring
Desperately wanting
I remember running through the wet grass
Falling a step behind
Both of us never tiring
Desperately wanting
Kick them right in the face
Make them wish they weren't born
And if they bring up your name
Will they say you won the war
Baby burst in the world
Never given a chance
Then they ask what went wrong
When you never had it right
No, you never had it right
I remember running through the wet grass
And falling a step behind
Both of us never tiring
Desperately Wanting
I remember running through the wet grass
And falling a step behind
Both of us never tiring
Desperately wanting
Oh, the letters have dropped off
Though they say you got them all
I finally figured out some things you'll never know
Take back your life, let me inside
We'll find the door, if you care, if you care to anymore
I remember running through the wet grass
Falling a step behind
Both of us never tiring
Desperately wanting
I remember running through the wet grass
Falling a step behind
Both of us never tiring
Desperately wanting

It's not goodbye
So I'll sing to the grave
I will sing to the grave
There's no light, but it feels like morning
I'll deny till I hear the doves sing
It's not goodbye if we meet again
So to you, my friend, I will sing to the grave
Put you back together
You will live forever
Put you back together
You will live forever
All the memories that you gave to me
I'm all messed up, thinking about you
Oh God, I want to see your face
I'd pull you from the grave just so I could say goodbye
Goodbye
It's not goodbye
So I'll sing to the grave
Put you back together
You will live forever
Put you back together
You will live forever
I can remember when you left this place
Couldn't perceive it, didn't wanna believe it
All of this time to reflect in me
Where your soul lies, now you're free
Now you're free
Now you're free
You will live forever
You will live forever, goodbye
You will live forever

Another Day Dawns-Beautiful Suicide :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:








let us speak today
we’re not silent anymore, we’re free today
you’re one sick individual
your life must be so sad
your mind is so f+cking pathetic
you realize we’re all that you have
just give us life
just give us time
just give us this moment to feel alive
you’ve got the gun to our heads but we’re not gonna let you win
now there’s blood on our hands but we’re made to pretend we’re fine
you told them i was contagious
you told them i was dangerous
you’ve got the gun to our heads, but i’d rather take my life
a beautiful suicide
let it be today
we’re gonna rip off all these chains
we’re gonna throw that rat in his cage
you’re one sick individual
your life must be so sad
your mind is so f+cking pathetic
you realized we’re all that you had
you’ve got the gun to our heads but we’re not gonna let you win
now there’s blood on our hands but we’re made to pretend we’re fine
you told them i was contagious
you told them i was dangerous
you’ve got the gun to our heads, but i’d rather take my life
a beautiful suicide

Mad angry, pissed off, break shit death metal. Frankly, I only like two bands so far, which are Dope Band and Lamb of God. In my opinion, there's something that is not quite right with the rest of the death metal bands, their songs are not aggressive and powerful enough, and they are not well composed.

As for specific songs, here's a list:

- Reclamation (Lamb of God)
- Grace (Lamb of God)
- Choke Sermon (Lamb of God)
- Set to Fail (Lamb of God)
- Dead seeds (Lamb of God)
- Fake Messiah (Lamb of God)
- Blacken the Cursed Sun (Lamb of God)
- Fuck the World (Dope)
- The Life (Dope)
- Bastard (Dope)
- Burn (Dope)
- Pari fucking oia (Dope)
- I don't give a fuck (Dope)
- We are (Dope)
- No Regrets (Dope)
- Scorn (Dope)
- No Way Out (Dope)
- 1999 (Dope)

Falling In Reverse-Last Resort (Reimagined) :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:





htxtps://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2Au_Oj1uAUw&pp=ygUeRmFsbGluZyBJbiBSZXZlcnNlIExhc3QgUmVzb3J0




Cut my life into pieces, this is my last resort
Suffocation, no breathing
Don't give a fuck, if I cut my arm bleeding
This is my last resort
Cut my life into pieces
I've reached my last resort – suffocation, no breathing
Don't give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding
Do you even care if I die bleeding?
Would it be wrong, would it be right
If I took my life tonight? Chances are that I might
Mutilation out of sight
And I'm contemplating suicide, I'm contemplating suicide
'Cause I'm losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine, I am fine
I never realized I was spread too thin
'Til it was too late and I was empty within
Hungry, feeding on chaos and living in sin
Downward spiral, where do I begin?
It all started when I lost my mother
No love for myself, and no love for another
Searching to find a love upon a higher level
Finding nothing but questions and devils
'Cause I'm losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Nothing is fine
I'm crying, I'm crying
I'm crying, I'm crying
I can't go on living this way
I can't go on living this way
Cut my life into pieces
(I can't go on living this way, I can't go on living this way)
Cut my life into pieces
(I can't go on living this way, I can't go on living this way)
'Cause I'm losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
(I can't go on living this way)
Nothing is fine (I can't go on living this way)
I'm running and I'm crying (I can't go on living this way)
I'm running and I'm crying (I can't go on living this way)
I'm running and I'm crying (I can't go on living this way)
Nothing's alright

Benson Boone-In The Stars :heart::hug::heart::hug::heart:











Sunday mornings were your favorite
I used to meet you down on Woods Creek Road
You did your hair up like you were famous
Even though it's only church where we were goin'

Now, Sunday mornings, I just sleep in
It's like I buried my faith with you
I'm screamin' at a God, I don't know if I believe in
'Cause I don't know what else I can do

I'm still holdin' on to everything that's dead and gone
I don't wanna say goodbye, 'cause this one means forever
And now you're in the stars and six-feet's never felt so far
Here I am alone between the heavens and the embers

Oh, it hurts so hard
For a million different reasons
You took the best of my heart
And left the rest in pieces

Diggin' through your old birthday letters
A crumpled 20 still in the box
I don't think that I could ever find a way to spend it
Even if it's the last 20 that I've got, oh

I'm still holdin' on to everything that's dead and gone
I don't wanna say goodbye, 'cause this one means forever
And now you're in the stars and six-feet's never felt so far
Here I am alone between the heavens and the embers

Oh, it hurts so hard
For a million different reasons
You took the best of my heart
And left the rest in pieces

I'm still holdin' (on), holdin' (on), holdin' on (on)
I'm still holdin' (on), holdin' (on), holdin' on (on)
I'm still holdin' (on), holdin' (on), I'm still holdin' on (on)
I'm still, ooh, still holdin' on

I'm still holdin' on to everything that's dead and gone (ooh)
I don't wanna say goodbye, 'cause this one means forever (ooh)
Now you're in the stars and six-feet's never felt so far
Here I am alone between the heavens and the embers

Oh, it hurts so hard
For a million different reasons
You took the best of my heart
Left the rest in pieces

Some of my favourite lyrics come from the soundtrack of the video game Civilization VI. The song is called Sogno di volare (Dream of flying) and it's originally Italian. Here's the English translation

Once You Have Taken Flight
You'll Decide
Gaze Towards The Sky You'll Know
That That Is Where Your Heart Will Feel At Home
Once You Have Taken Flight
You'll Decide
Gaze Towards The Sky You'll Know That
That Is Where Your Heart Will Feel At Home

The First Great Bird Will
Take Flight Toward The Sun
Sweeping Over The Great Mount Ceceri
Filling The Universe With Wonder And Glory

Once You Have Taken Flight
You'll Decide
Gaze Towards The Sky You'll Know That
That Is Where Your Heart Will Feel At Home

Mankind Will Be Lifted
By His Own Creation
Just Like Birds Into The Sky
Oooh Oooh

Filling The Universe With Wonder And Glory

Once You Have Taken Flight
You'll Decide
Gaze Towards The Sky You'll Know That
That Is Where Your Heart Will Feel At Home
Glory! Glory!

Rise Against-I Don't Want To Be Here Anymore :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:










On pins and needles we are waiting for the fall
We count the days scratching lines on a wall
Wait in the wings at someone's beck and call
No longer recognize the place that I call home
No longer recognize this face as my own
Somewhere, this fate, I lost control

We backed down
We took "no" for answers far too long
We felt those walls close around
I don't wanna be here anymore
I don't wanna be here anymore

I don't wanna be here anymore (be here anymore)
I know there's nothing left worth staying for
Your paradise is something I've endured (oh-ah-oh, oh-ah-oh)
See, I don't think I can fight this anymore (fight this anymore)
I'm listening with one foot out the door
And something has to die to be reborn
And I don't wanna be here (be here) anymore

On hand and foot we answered every single call
And weathered every day like passing storms
But when they break we will all be gone
Won't back down
Won't take "no" for answers anymore
These walls close
We pace back and forth

I don't wanna be here anymore (be here anymore)
I know there's nothing left worth staying for

Your paradise is something I've endured (oh-ah-oh, oh-ah-oh)
See, I don't think I can fight this anymore (fight this anymore)
I'm listening with one foot out the door
And something has to die to be reborn
And I don't wanna be here (be here) anymore
The point where we break
Gets closer everyday
But where do we go?
But where do we go?

I don't wanna be here anymore
I don't wanna be here anymore
I don't wanna be here anymore (be here anymore)
I know there's nothing left worth staying for
Your paradise is something I've endured (oh-ah-oh, oh-ah-oh)
See, I don't think I can fight this anymore (fight this anymore)
I'm listening with one foot out the door
And something has to die to be reborn
And I don't wanna be here (be here) anymore

(We need a better way, we need to let go)
(We need a better way, we need to let go) anymore
(We need a better way, we need to let go)
(We need a better way)

Crowbar-Slave No More :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:










Slowly drowning thru my own abuse
Nothing changes anymore
Thought I'd taste the freedom long ago
Not the man I was before

Slave no more
Slave no more

Hold that bottle as I start to sink - comatose and fading slow
One more time I always tell myself
Dragged down by the undertow

C & C Music Factory-Just A Touch Of Love :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:










One, two, three, hit it

Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love

Love has been on my mind for some time now
But you've been the missing link
Of all that whats happened all the stuff made me
Think that love is not for kids

All I want is your touch, so come a little closer
What's his memory, open up your heart and let me in
Like the bird in the sky love has got me flying in
And the stars in the night, beautiful

Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love

Music will light the fires of romance
So that must be forever
You got a friend and a lover someone does discorver
That just a touch of love is all I need

All I want is your touch, so come a little closer
What's his memory, open up your heart and let me in
Like the bird in the sky love has got me flying in
And the stars in the night, beautiful

Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love

Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love

Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love
Just a touch of love, just a touch of love

I want just a touch of your love
Not too much, just a touch
So what do you say, are you gonna give it to me?
Give it to me?

All I need is just a touch of your love
A touch of your love, come on
A touch of your love, oh yeah
All I need is a touch of your love
All I want is a touch of your love

Give me just a touch
All I need is give me just a touch of love, yeah
Touch

Not typically the music I listen to but I thought I would say goodbye to a legend.
I think this is his most popular song. :wink:

Tony Bennett-I Left My Heart In San Francisco ❤️🤗❤️










The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gray
The glory that was Rome is of another day
I've been terribly alone and forgotten in Manhattan
I'm going home to my city by the Bay

I left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill, it calls to me
To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars
The morning fog may chill the air, I don't care

My love waits there in San Francisco
Above the blue and windy sea
When I come home to you, San Francisco
Your golden sun will shine for me

Heard this song on the 90's Channel.... May have posted before.:wink:

Rythm Syndicate-P.A.S.S.I.O.N. :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:









Sitting in my bedroom the rain is pouring down
The shade is on the window and loneliness is all around
A little voice I'm hearing says don't you stay inside
But I can't fight this feeling got L. You. S. T. On my mind

I head for the arena where lovers try their fate
Moving through the darkness I take my place and wait
A pretty bird beside me says hello with her eyes
She looks so sweet and lovely but is she N. A. S. T. Y?


Chorus

P. A. S. S. I. O. N.
Got me in a jam again
There's no way that I can win

P. A. S. S. I. O. N.



Her lips are callin to me no way I can resist

Addicted to the feeling intoxicated by her kiss

I take her to my castle we set our bodies free

And while the music played on she loved me down from A to Z



The night is getting longer I start to realise

Don't know what I've got into the girl is C. Are. A. Z. Y.

I try to cool the fire like I oughta should

But there's no way to turn back the S. E. X. Is just too good



Chorus



Don't be tempted to touch the fire

I shouldve read all the warning signs

You might get burned by your own desire

I lost my mind I must have been blind



I never knew another lover that was evil under cover

Then I discovered you girl, you're like no other

Doin the time for the crime I was blind

To the games that you were playin

Words that you were sayin

Goin out of my mind, you're like a hurricane

Drive me insane you're like a heart attack

Know it's a fact, you got the knack to drop a man to his knees



Chorus

Dieth-Dont Get Mad.... Get Even :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:






Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
I've been sitting here towing the line
All the while you were wasting my time
You always said nice guys finish last
But I'll have the last laugh
I've been waiting, biding my time
You're feeding me bull with all your lines
I've seen the movie I know how it ends
You screw up, and I'm fighting back
I've already been there
I know how it goes
I'll show you the exit where
The rubber meets the road
Settle the score
Sweet taste of revenge
Don't get mad get even!
You played me dirty
Right to the end
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Got no time for lies and stealin'
All my wounds, now they are healing
I'm calling your bluff and now you see me
My light is strong, but you can't see
I've already been there
I know how it goes
I'll show you the exit where
The rubber meets the road
Settle the score
Sweet taste of revenge
Don't get mad get even!
You played me dirty
Right to the end
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
I've already been there
I know how it goes
I'll show you the exit where
The rubber meets the road
Settle the score
Sweet taste of revenge
Don't get mad get even!
You played me dirty
Right to the end
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
Don't get mad get even!
