lyrics to songs that you can relate to


heres another part I always seem to be able to relate to…and I dont know why you couldnt just stay with me. you couldnt stand to be near me when my face doesnt seem to wanna shine “cause its a little bit dirty, oh well”

“It hurts to be in love.” It’s a real old one. It actually isn’t accurate right now, but at one point in my life, it was my theme song; I was in exactly the situation described.

Two Rush Songs:

Subdivisions: My high school theme song. Be cool or be cast out.

Time Stand Still: As my friends grow up and we drift apart, I find that I’m relating to this song right now.

You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.

The Police: “It’s a big enough umbrella, but it’s always me who ends up getting wet.”

Robert Plant: “You were pumping iron while I was pumping irony.”

“Any major dude with half a heart surely will tell you, my friend–
Any minor world that breaks apart falls together again…”
-Steely Dan

“Is she really going out with him?”

JMcC, San Francisco
“Hear the voices in my head, I swear to God it sounds like they’re snoring”

I have one I’ve mentioned before on other threads: Alanis Morissette’s Not the Doctor. For background info: I dated a young man who was seriously ill mentally. He had major emotional issues that caused him to act out peculiarly–and he hated women, although he never admitted it. (Even his friends teased him that he hated women.) Yeah, he was a great choice for a boyfriend. :::Slapping forehead:::

He’s the emotionally dependent type, dangerously so, and in addition he was addicted to prescription drugs/painkillers. About two years after we’d broken up (and since we’d talked to each other), I heard through someone who worked with his brother that his fiance had had enough and called off the wedding. He decided kill himself. He dressed up in his paramedic uniform, got his gun, chickened out, and “punished” himself by shooting a hole in his foot. He spent a week in a mental hospital.

Guess who called me a week later, having no idea I knew what had happened. He left a voicemail saying that, “If I ever wanted to hear a story…” I never returned that call. Or the ones he made to my parents’ place, asking me to please, call him, he just wants to be friends…and am I still dating that boy?

So, when Alanis says: “I don’t want to be the glue that holds your pieces together,” “I don’t want to be your bandage if the wound is not mine,” “I don’t want to be the glass of sip malt whiskey hidden in the bottom drawer [although with him, it was Vodka],” and ultimately–“You see, it’s too much to ask for and I am not the doctor,” I practically cheer. Man, I love that song.

Sorry, the story went longer than intended, but I do have a good deal of passion for the song. :slight_smile: Hope you didn’t mind the sharing!

I used to think the world was against me. Now I know better. Some of the smaller countries are neutral.

The first song I picked is because it talks about ending a relationship.And I think most people can relate to this. The title is “Didn’t want to have to do it” But i can never find who the artist is. I would bet it’s a cover but i’m not sure.

  • “was a time that i thought our love could fly and never, never fall, why should i suppose we were never really meant to be close to each other, at all, at all?”

The final one talks about when you meet someone that just blows you away with every touch they give and just makes you become hooked on them. The song is: “The Touch Of You” by Brenda and the Tabulations

  • “what a touch from a little hand can do, especially coming from you, turn my life all around, i can’t seem to settle down…”
    Anyway, that’s my list. Most of those songs are not heard on most stations.

‘The beginning calls for courage; the end demands care’

Right now, I’d have to say the most pertinant song would have to be Lyin’ Ass Bitch by Fishbone.

After I trusted someone from this board and was made the fool of.

Everybody sing… “She’s nothing but a little lyin ass bitch, she always says she loves you but you know she don’t care…”

Just add water, it makes it’s own sauce!

I’ll second Sealemon’s Time Stand Still and I’ll raise him a Cold Fire.

“You know how complex women are”

  • Neil Peart, Rush (1993)

A year and a half ago when I was about to graduate from college, the Goo Goo Dolls’ “Iris” explained my fear of leaving my safe college life and entering the real world some 300 miles away -

  • And I don’t want the world to see me
    'Cuz I don’t think that they’d understand
    When everything’s made to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am.*

Sucks to your assmar.

Actually, the line I relate to the best is in Bruce Springsteen’s “Rosalita”:

Cause the record company, Rosie, just gave me a big advance.

I know that feeling. :slight_smile:

Fade to Black…when I am really down.

Unpretty by tlc, and I’ll Think of Something by Clint Black.

Good topic…where ya been heatherlee?

Very funny Scotty…
Now beam up my clothes!

Peter Gabriel’s *Solsbury Hill *

When illusion spin her net
I’m never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No on taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don’t need a replacement
I’ll tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart going boom boom boom
“Hey” I said “You can keep my things,
they’ve come to take me home.”

Peace on Earth = Purity Of Essence

Songs that reminded me of my former husband:Nobody Wins-Clint Black,5 minutes-Lorrie Morgan. I loved ac/dc’s song whole lotta Rosie.It made me finally like my name! Fave lyric:Now I guess I’ll have to tell im,that I got no cerebellum-Ramones!

“The wheel is turning and you can’t slow down
You let go and you can’t hold on
You can’t go back and you can’t stand still
If the thunder don’t get you then the lighting will”

-The Wheel (Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia Band)

“What I wonder is why people are so afraid of everybody coming up with their own reality on their own terms.” - Jerry Garcia

Just been hiding out been having a rough time with things lately.

“Then What” by Clay Walker. A guy wondering what his lying, cheating ex is going to do when the misery she has spread comes back around to haunt her and pay her back.

Envelope, please…

And the Pretty-Much-Sums-Up-Every-Relationship-Neuro-Has-Ever-Been-In Award goes to:

Nine Inch Nails, for “Sanctified”.

Although, heatherlee’s pick could work, too.

Modest? You bet I’m modest! I am the queen of modesty!

"I’m just a soul whose intentions are good…

Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood."

Yer pal,
