Veil Of Maya-Red Fur :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:








Are we just chained to
A life that's been lived before
It liberates you
So you keep wanting more

We're retracing
Every step while we're taking
Steps back

Are you happy now
That I'm bleeding?
Are you better now?
The webs keep weaving

Each step back
I will not rest these eyes
Until I breach the other side
Until I breach the other side

There will be an end to witness
There's nothing that will make a difference
Is there even life for us out there (for us out there)

Are you happy now
That I'm bleeding?
Are you better now?
The webs keep weaving

When the panic starts to die
That's when everything's alright
When the panic starts to die
Suffer

No one earned their place
Thrown here by mistake
'Til they meet their grave
Leave their debt to pay
Suffer

Feeding on their ignorance
With a smile on your face as you cash out
Tearing down the monuments
Tearing down the monuments, now

(Are you happy now?)
(Are you happy now?)

Are you happy now
That I'm bleeding?
Are you better now?
The webs keep weaving

Suffer

Tina Turner-The Best :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

R.I.P. :heart::aw::heart:











I call you when I need you, my heart's on fire
You come to me, come to me wild and wild
When you come to me
Give me everything I need

Give me a lifetime of promises and a world of dreams
Speak a language of love like you know what it means
MMm, and it can't be wrong
Take my heart and make it strong, baby

You're simply the best
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart
I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart
Baby, I would rather be dead

In your heart, I see the star of every night and every day
In your eyes, I get lost, I get washed away
Just as long as I'm here in your arms
I could be in no better place

You're simply the best
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I've ever met
Ooh, I'm stuck on your heart
I hang on every word you say
Don't tear us apart, no, no, no
Baby, I would rather be dead

Each time you leave me, I start losing control
You're walking away with my heart and my soul
I can feel you even when I'm alone
Oh baby, don't let go

Ooh, you're the best, ooh
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I've ever met
Ooh, I'm stuck on your heart
I hang on every word you say
Don't tear us apart, no, no
Baby, I would rather be dead
You're the best

Ooh, you're simply the best
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart, baby
I hang on every word you say
Don't tear us apart, no, no, no
Baby, I would rather be dead

Oh, you're the best
You're better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I've ever met
Ooh, you're the best

Awake.... Listening to songs in the music threads. Trying to catch up.
Why can't I just go to sleep and never wake up. I just repell people.
Damn... Some songs be long. :wink:

Tina Turner-Proud Mary :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:









You know, every now and then I think you might like to hear
Somethin' from us, nice and easy
There's just one thing you see
We never, ever do nothin' nice and easy
We always do it nice and rough
But we're gonna take the beginning of this song and do it easy
But then we're gonna do the finish rough
That's the way we do Proud Mary

And we're rolling (Ooh), rolling (Ooh), rolling on the river
Listen to the story

Left a good job in the city (Down in the city)
Workin' for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleep
(And I was) Worryin' about the way that things might have been

(You know that) Big wheel keep on turnin
Proud Mary keep on burnin'
And we're rollin' (Rollin')
Rollin' yeah (Rollin'), rollin' on the river (Rollin' on the river)

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
(You know I) And I pumped a lot of 'pane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of that city until I hitched
A ride on the river boat Queen

(You know the) Big wheel keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keep on burnin'
And we're rollin' (Rollin')
Rollin' yeah (Rollin'), rollin' on the river (Rollin' on the river)
Said we're rollin' (Rollin')
Rollin' yeah (Rollin'), rollin' on the river (Rollin' on the river)

I left a good job in the city
Workin' for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleep
Worryin' about the way things might have been

Big wheel keep on turnin' (Turnin')
Proud Mary keep on burnin' (Burnin')
Rollin'
Rollin', rollin' on the river
Said we're rollin'
Rollin', rollin' on the river

Oh I cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
And I pumped a lot of 'pane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city until I hitched
A ride on the river boat Queen

Big wheel keep on turnin' (Turnin')
Proud Mary keep on burnin' (Burnin')
And we're rollin'
Said we're rollin', we're rollin' on the river
I tell ya we're rollin'
Rollin', we're rollin' on the river

Alright, yeah
Ooh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

If you come down to the river
I betcha you're gonna find some people who live
And you don't have to worry
If you got no money
People on the river are happy to give

Big wheel keep on turnin' (Turnin')
Proud Mary keep on burnin' (Burnin')
And we're rollin'
And we're rollin'
And we're rollin' on a river
Tell me one more time
Rollin' (Yeah)
Rollin' (Alright)
Rollin' on the river (Ooh yeah)

Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river (Yeah, alright now)
We're rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river
Said we're rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river
I tell you we're rollin', we're rollin', we're rollin' on the river
Yeah, alright, uh-huh

Tina Turner-Better Be Good To Me :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:










A prisoner of your love
Entangled in your web
Hot whispers in the night
I'm captured by your spell
Captured
Oh yes I'm touched by this show of emotion
Should I be fractured by your lack of devotion
Should I, should I

Oh, you better be good to me
That's how it's gotta be now
Cause I don't have no use
For what you loosely call the truth
And you better be good to me
Yeah, you better be good
Come on, come on, be good to me

I think it's also right
That we don't need to fight
We stand face to face
And you present your case
Yes I know you keep telling me that you love me
And I really do want to believe
But did you think I'd just accept you in blind faith
Oh sure babe, anything to please you

But, you better be good to me
That's how it's gotta be now
Cause I don't have the time
For your over loaded lines
You better be good to me
Yeah, you better be good, good to me
Be good to me

And I really don't see
Why it's so hard to be good to me
And you know, I don't understand
What's your plan that you can't be good to me
What I can't feel I surely cannot see
Why can't you be good to me
And if it's not real I do not wish to see

Why don't you be good to me
Why can't you be good to me
Why can't you be good to me
Why can't you be good to me
Why can't you be good to me
Why can't you be good to me
Be good, be good to me

Cause I don't have no use
For what you loosely call the truth
And I don't have the time
For your over loaded lines
So, you better be good to me
Yeah, you better be good
Better be good to me
Better be good
Cause I don't have the time
For your over loaded lines
And I don't have no use
For what you loosely call the truth
And you better be good to me
Be good to me
Be good, be good to me
Cause I don't have no use
For what you loosely call the truth
And I don't have the time
For your over loaded lines
You better be good to me
Better be good to me
Be good, be good to me
Why can't you be good me

Amity Affliction-It's Hell Down Here đź’Ż











Is it heaven up there?
Because it's hell down here
Is it heaven up there?
Because it's hell down here

I can feel you writhe
I feel the tears, well in your eyes
Streaming down your face
You haven't seen the sun in days

Your breaking heart, your daily tears
I'm watching you in slow motion
A broken dream, a deathly calm
There's nothing on the horizon

I can feel your fears
And I can taste your tears
Is it heaven up there?
Because it's hell down here (hell down here)
I can see your sorrow
I hope there's no tomorrow
Is it heaven up there?
Because it's hell down here (hell down here)

Like a snake, I tire
The cold dark clouds, they steal my light (my light)
You're so distant now
A world away, I'm winding down

Your breaking heart, your daily tears
I'm watching you in slow motion
A broken dream, a deathly calm
There's nothing on the horizon

I can feel your fears
And I can taste your tears
Is it heaven up there?
Because it's hell down here (hell down here)
I can see your sorrow
I hope there's no tomorrow
Is it heaven up there?
Because it's hell down here (hell down here)

No more sunlight
No more dead ends
No more heartbreak
No more dead friends, oh

Oh, no more sunlight

No more dead ends
No more heartbreak
No more dead friends

I can feel your fears
And I can taste your tears
Is it heaven up there?
Because it's hell down here (hell down here)
I can see your sorrow
I hope there's no tomorrow
Is it heaven up there?
Because it's hell down here

Epica-Memory :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

Just remembering when times were better. ;-;










Midnight
Not a sound from the pavement
Has the moon lost her memory?
She is smiling alone
In the lamplight
The withered leaves collect at my feet
And the wind begins to moan

Memory
All alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days
I was beautiful then
I remember
The time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again

Every street lamp
Seems to beat a fatalistic warning
Someone mutters at the street lamp gutters
And soon it will be morning

Daylight
I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I mustn't give in
When the dawn comes
Tonight will be a memory too
And a new day will begin

Burnt out ends of smoky days
The stale cold smell of morning
A street lamp dies, another night is over
Another day is dawning

Touch me
It's so easy to leave me
All alone with my memory
Of my days in the sun
If you touch me
You'll understand what happiness is
Look a new day has begun​

Westlife-I Wanna Grow Old With You :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

Used to listen to these guys when I was young, sad they weren't as popular in the U.S.
Also was foolish enough to think that could happen for me.










Another day without your smile
Another day just passes by
And now I know
How much it means
For you to stay right here with me

The time we spent apart
Will make our love grow stronger
But it hurts so bad
I can't take it any longer

I wanna grow old with you
I wanna die lying in your arms
I wanna grow old with you
I wanna be looking in your eyes
I wanna be there for you
Sharing in everything you do
I wanna grow old with you

A thousand miles between us now
It causes me to wonder how
Our love tonight (our love tonight)
Remains so strong (remains so strong)

It makes our risk (it make our risk)
Right all along
The time we spent apart
Will make our love grow stronger
But it hurt so bad I can't take it any longer

I wanna grow old with you
I wanna die lying in your arms
I wanna grow old with you
I wanna be looking in your eyes
I wanna be there for you
Sharing in everything you do
I wanna grow old with you

Things can come and go
I know but
Baby I believe
Something's burning strong between us
Makes it clear to me

I wanna grow old with you
I wanna die lying in your arms
I wanna grow old with you
I wanna be looking in your eyes
I wanna be there for you
Sharing in everything you do

I wanna grow old with you
I wanna die lying your arms
I wanna grow old with you
I wanna be looking in your eyes
I wanna be there for you
Sharing in everything you do
I wanna grow old with you

Citizen Soldier-Through Hell :heart::hug::heart:










"Through Hell"

They say the devil's just an angel
That never learned from all his pain
They say the strong are never strangers
To the darkest of their days

I've learned there's beauty in the danger
There's meaning in the misery
Someday you'll look back at what it made you
And you'll never be the same

I had to go through hell
Through hell
To be the person I am today
Had to find myself
Myself
Climbing a mountain of my mistakes
Cause I was worth the war that's underneath my skin
And if I had to I would do it all again
Through hell
Through hell
You want a story to tell
You gotta go through hell

They say you're never gonna make it
Keep you digging just to find fool's gold
I know legends never had to fake it
Born with souls that can't be sold

They're gonna talk you down
Like you're a stupid kid
You gonna wave a white flag
Or are you gonna get pissed
What you call taking punches
I call learning how to live
So keep your prison cell

I'd rather go through hell
Through hell
To be the person I am today
I had to find myself
Myself
Climbing a mountain of my mistakes
Cause I was worth the war that's underneath my skin
And if I had to I would do it all again
Through hell
Through hell
You want a story to tell
You gotta go through hell

You want a story
Want a story you can tell
You gotta go
You gotta go through hell

You want a story
Want a story you can tell

You gotta go cause
If you let go
You'll never know

I had to go through hell
Through hell
Cause sometimes that's the only way

I had to go through hell
Through hell
To be the person I am today
Had to find myself
Myself
Climbing a mountain of my mistakes
Cause I was worth the war that's underneath my skin
And if I had to I would do it all again
Through hell
Through hell
You want a story to tell
You gotta go through hell​

Asking Alexandria-Dark Void :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:










One more chance to fall asleep inside
This nightmare that's taking every part of me
One more chance to fall asleep inside
This nightmare that's taking every part of me

If you scratch under the surface, try to find a purpose
I wonder what the dead would find
Trapped inside the prison of my mind, and I'm
Sick of messing up, up, but forget it now
Every time I try to stop, stop I fall apart
Lost deep down, I'm searching for a glimpse of hope
I'm sick of messing up, up but forget it now

Believe in me, and set me free
I'll drag these memories through the dark void
Just let me be, my savior, please
Help me crawl out the darkness

If you're digging through the dirt to see what you can find inside
Trapped inside the prison of my mind, and I
Try to live in the moment, lost my mind, now I'm broken
Can't escape the darkness that's been dragging me down
Lost deep down, I'm searching for a glimpse of hope

Believe in me, and set me free
I'll drag these memories through the dark void
Just let me be, my savior, please
Give me hope for the hopeless through the dark void
Void, void, void, void, void, void

One more chance to fall asleep inside
This nightmare that's taking every part of me
One more chance to fall asleep inside
This nightmare that's taking every part of me
One more chance, one more chance

One more chance to fall asleep inside
This nightmare that's taking every part of me

One more chance to fall asleep inside
This nightmare that's taking every part of me
One more chance to fall asleep inside
This nightmare that's taking every part of me

Believe in me, and set me free
I'll drag these memories through the dark void
One more chance to fall asleep inside (Just let me be)
This nightmare that's taking every part of me (My savior, please)
One more chance to fall asleep
Inside, this nightmare that's taking every part of me

Believe in me, and set me free
I'll drag these memories through the dark void
