I don't know if a thread has been made like this and if so please let me know and I'll delete this.

I'm not sure if I'm the only one, but sometimes songs lyrics get stuck in my head. I love music but sometimes the lyrics themselves can take on a life of their own inside my head. And they can take on different meanings absent the music. So I wanted to make this thread for song lyrics that have had some impact on you for whatever reason.

I guess the only rule I'll stipulate is that we shouldn't post the actual song videos in here. There are plenty of other music threads to post videos in. Post just a line, a full verse, or the full song, whatever you feel. Also if you want, you can post why the lyrics are meaningful to you. I won't be but I'll leave it up to you. I'll post in the following format: lyrics italicized followed by the song title and artist bolded. Feel free to follow along if you so choose. I'll start:

I never loved nobody fully
Always one foot on the ground
And by protecting my heart truly
I got lost
In the sounds

I hear in my mind
All of these voices
I hear in my mind
All of these words
I hear in my mind
All of this music
And it breaks my heart
And it breaks my heart


Fidelity

Promise me this
If I lose to myself
You won't mourn a day
And you'll move onto someone else

Neon Gravestones by Twenty One Pilots

Why'd you say I don't belong here?
Fill a bucket full of my tears
Pour it out the water, all of my insecurities whenever I'm scared
I watch 'em grow and say I don't care
I pray to God to ask if hope's real
And if it is, then I was thinking maybe You could introduce us, we ain't met still
Yeah, my chest feels like a blade's in it
Who put it there? I think they did it
Out the cell now, where am I headed?
Am I Hell-bound? Will I find Heaven?
Will I feel better or just regret it?
If I let you go and find the seven letters
I've been looking for, it's like it's never endin'

I see the walls that are torn and bent
The tug of war in the now, not yet
Holding back what they can't contain
Can you tell me why I feel this way

I have faith that the world I'm in
Will be redeemed to its place again
But there's a weight that I can't explain
So tell me why I feel this way

Throw it all away
Let's lose ourselves
Cause there's no one left for us to blame
Its a shame we're all dying
And do you think you deserve your freedom

How could you send us all far away from home
When you know damn well that this is all
I would still lay down my life for you

And do you think you deserve your freedom
No I don't think you do

There's no justice in the world
There's no justice in the world

And there never was

I am the way, I am the light
I am the dark inside the night
I hear your hopes, I feel your dreams
And in the dark I hear your screams
Don't turn away, just take my hand
And when you make your final stand
I'll be right there, I'll never leave
All I ask of you... Believe


Believe
By Savatage


I don't know what the guys of Savatage were intended to when they wrote this song, but it sounds to me like a "Don't give up! Life sucks sometimes but there's something good in store for you. Just believe." As if it's God talking to someone who's made a lot of mistakes and whose life has been such a burden. That's what I feel when I read the full lyrics.

I wish that I could look at you with empathy
Sometimes I feel like I've become what you were scared to be
Which makes it really hard to look at you with sympathy
'Cause if I'm feeling bad for you, then I have to feel bad for me
And that's just something I feel like we don't deserve
That's why I'm always looking down on you, I know it hurts

Nate by NF

Here, NF (Nate) is talking to his younger self. I find this very relatable. I had a therapist suggest inner child work and it made me very upset because this is how I feel. I hate myself and don't deserve much, if any, compassion. Inner child work requires you to care for and "reparent" your younger self, basically. No.

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you
Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

It could all be so simple
But you'd rather make it hard
Loving you is like a battle
And we both end up with scars

...
See, I know what we've got to do
You let go and I'll let go too
'Cause no one's hurt me more than you
And no one ever will
...
No matter how I think we grow
You always seem to let me know
It ain't workin'
It ain't workin'
And when I try to walk away
You'd hurt yourself to make me stay
This is crazy
This is crazy

This is my internal battle.

Prepare the diving bell
Maybe just for a spell again
As
far as I can tell
Oh, you knew me too well
I miss you there when I descend

Sorry there's no place for you
Inside the solitude
Just stay up here until I'm back again

Oh, this wasn't in my plans
Abandoned ship and heading for the sand
Oh, the albatross crash-lands
I've got this sinking feeling that I never can go home


...

In my mind
Endless sea
Calling from the bottom
But you don't hear me
Send your line
Down to me
Meet me on the surface
I will never leave

Just one time
All I need
Calling from the bottom
But you don't hear me
Stuck in time
Stuck in me
Broken on the bottom like a refugee

I don’t care cus I’m not there
And I don’t care if I’m here tomorrow
Again and again I’ve taken too much
Of the things that cost you too much

True faith, New order
And you know the sun's settin' fast,
And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts.
Well, go on now and kiss it goodbye,
But hold on to your lover,
'Cus your heart's bound to die.

Our town, Iris DeMent

I paced around for hours on empty
I jumped at the slightest of sounds
And I couldn't stand the person inside me
I turned all the mirrors around

Control by Halsey

I'm barricaded inside
So stop watching
I'm not coming to the door
So stop knocking, stop knocking
I'm trapped here
God keep saying I'm not locked in
I chose this
I am lost in my own conscience
I know that shutting the world out ain't solving the problem
But I didn't build this house because I thought it would solve 'em
I built it because I thought that it would be safer in there
But it's not, I'm not the only thing that's living in here

You taught me the courage of stars before you left
How light carries on endlessly, even after death
With shortness of breath, you explained the infinite
How rare and beautiful it is to even exist

I couldn’t help but ask
For you to say it all again
I tried to write it down
But I could never find a pen
I’d give anything to hear
You say it one more time,
That the universe was made
Just to be seen by my eyes

...

With shortness of breath, I’ll explain the infinite
How rare and beautiful it truly is that we exist

The ants are in the sugar
The muscles atrophied
We're on the other side, the screen is us and we're t.v.
Spread me open,
Sticking to my pointy ribs
Are all your infants in abortion cribs
I was born into this
Everything turns to shit
The boy that you loved is the man that you fear
Pray until your number,
Asleep from all your pain,
Your apple has been rotting
Tomorrow's turned up dead
I have it all and I have no choice but to
I'll make everyone pay and you will see
You can kill yourself now
Because you're dead
In my mind
The boy that you loved is the monster you fear
Peel off all those eyes and crawl into the dark,
You've poisoned all of your children to camouflage your scars
Pray unto the splinters, pray unto your fear
Pray your life was just a dream
The cut that never heals
Pray now baby, pray your life was just a dream
(I am so tangled in my sins that I cannot escape)
Pinch the head off, collapse me like a weed
Someone had to go this far
I was born into this
Everything turns to shit
The boy that you loved is the man that you fear
Peel off all those eyes and crawl into the dark,
You've poisoned all of your children to camouflage your scars
Pray unto the splinters, pray unto your fear
Pray your life was just a dream
The cut that never heals
Pray now baby, pray your life was just a dream
The world in my hands, there's no one left to hear you scream
There's no one left for you

When all of your wishes are granted, many of your dreams will be destroyed

Man That You Fear - Marilyn Manson

I love every lyric especially "pray your life was just a dream" because I know I do. To me it represents the eventual corruption and futility of life.

Yesterday, it hit me that I do all the little things that you do
Except those same little things that you do are annoying
They're annoying as hell in fact
It kind of struck a little bell in fact
I like to keep my little shell intact

“probably battlin' with manic depression
Man, I think I'm going mad again
It's like I'm happy for a second then I'm sad again
And to my fans, the reason I could get to this
You're my drug, the instrumental my therapist
Man, I need some therapy..
...
You ever fall 'sleep 'case you don't wanna be awake?
In a way, you're tired of the reality you face?
If you're thinking 'bout doing it..”
Dave-Psycho.

How this song flips, from life momentarily being good/happy, to then the opposite.

Strong 1st post but another feelsy tracks;
Joyner lucas- I’m sorry.

I was only in my mind
You were on the outside waiting
I could feel you all the time
Your voice could save me
Now all these Sirens sing for me
But I just wanna hear your melody
I call and I can hear you sing
But oh
It's only my echo

“At times I really didn't show
What was wrong with me, wrong with me
I told myself I cannot grow
Without lovin' me, lovin' me
This is just the hell that lives inside (hmm)
Tell me now, where to? Please be my guide”
Kid cudi- lovin me

I had a dream, it was my opps, I pray to God I don't-don't-don't don't wanna die like this
I got a cold heart while I got that shit
And if I die, my momma gon' slice her wrists
I don't wanna see my momma die like this (Oh) “
Young thug- cry like this.

Mommy, I'm sorry if my first letter made you cry

to be honest with you, I don't think that I want to die

Sometimes I feel like I'm cancerous in others lives

that's probably why I drink at night and sleep till 4 or 5

it's kind of hard walking through life with my distorted eyes

when I was younger, I was stupid and I thought I'd thrive

I thought a lot about everything that I said in the letter

And questioned whether or not if I was dead, you'd be better

you think my shorty would be happy if I never met her?

it's too late now, mommy, I could never forget her

Could never forget how she taught me to love

cause my father and grandmother is always above

It's glory above, you know that Daddy taught me to thug

And every time we was with Nanny she'd bombard me with hugs

damn, I miss her, mommy and it's hard to believe

that I'm grown and I don't understand it, why did they leave?

Jedi Mind Tricks- Razorblade Salvation.

I'm sick and tired of bein' sick and tired
Fallin' in fire
Feels like my body is wrapped in barbed wire
I don't give a fuck no more
And I just can't take no more
How the fuck am I supposed to not to bake a cake no more?
And the only thing that's left is love
'Cause I can't hate no more
So, if you gonna kill me, do it
'Cause I just can't wait no more
Rappers dyin' from rapid fire
It just ain't safe no more
Time waits for no man
And I just can't waste no more
Steady lookin' at my mistakes
I can't erase no more
Demons fallin' from the sky
This ain't no holy place no more
God, I swear I'll never put you in second place no more
'Cause I don't wanna see that look on your face no more
Drugs, I don't chase no more
That ain't the case no more
And I finally don't wanna be a disgrace no more
A guinea pig to this world's rat race, no more
Russian Roulette in the face with a .44
I'm unhappy

Esham- unhappy
