    Post your favorite song lyrics! I'll start with one of my all-time favorite songs...

    Thunder Road
    by Bruce Springsteen

    The screen door slams, Mary's dress waves
    Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
    Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
    Hey that's me babe and I want you only
    Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again tonight

    Don't run back inside darling, you know just what I'm here for
    So you're scared and you're thinking that maybe we ain't that young anymore
    Show a little faith there's magic in the night
    You ain't a beauty but hey you're alright
    And that's alright with me

    You could hide beneath your covers and study your pain
    Make crosses from your lovers throw roses in the rain
    Waste your summer praying in vain for a savior to rise from these streets
    Well I ain't no hero that's understood
    All the redemption I can offer lies beheath this old hood
    With a chance to make it good somehow
    Hey, what else can you do now

    Except roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair
    Well the night's busting open, these two lanes will take us anywhere
    We've got one last chance to make it real
    To trade in these wings on some wheels
    Climb in back, Heaven's waiting down on the tracks

    Oh, oh, come take my hand
    We're riding out tonight to case the promised land
    Oh oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road
    Lying out there like a killer in the sun
    Hey I know it's late but we can make it if we run
    Oh Thunder Road sit tight, take hold, Thunder Road

    Well, I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk
    And my car's out back if you're ready to take that long walk
    From your front porch to my front seat
    The door's open but the ride it ain't free
    And I know you're lonely for words that I haven't spoken
    But tonight we'll be free and all the promises will be broken

    There were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away
    They haunt this dusty beach road in the skeleton remains
    Of burned out chevrolets
    They scream your name at night in the street
    Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
    And in the lonely cool before dawn
    From your room you hear their engines roar on
    But when you get to the porch they're gone
    Lost in the wind, so Mary climb in
    It's a town full of losers and I'm pulling out of here to win

    Selah by LAURYN HILL


    Nothing can be done against the truth
    No matter how we remain in denial

    Wasting time
    Replacing time
    With each empty excuse

    But that'll only work a little while
    Coping with despair
    Knowing you're not there
    Ashamed to just admit
    I've been a fool
    So I blame it on the sun
    Run away from everyone
    Hoping to escape this ridicule
    Trapped in misery
    Wrapped so miserably
    In this deception that I'm wearin' like a skin

    Dying to maintain
    Oh I keep trying to explain
    A heart that never loved me to begin
    Oh I'm such a mess
    I have no choice but to confess
    That I've been desperately trying to belong
    Lying to myself
    And everybody else
    Refusing to admit my right was wrong

    And then he came
    Selah
    And it means
    Praise and Meditation
    And then he came
    Selah
    And it means
    Did ya think about that?
    And then he came
    Selah
    Oh and it means
    Praise and Meditation
    And then he came
    Selah
    Oh and it means
    That it is seen

    How beautiful is fruit still in denial of its roots?
    My guilty heart behaved so foolishly
    This treason from within
    That reasons with my sin
    Won't be happy till it sees the death of me

    Selfishly addicted
    To a life that I depicted
    Conflicted cuz it's not reality

    Oh what's left of me
    I beg you desperately
    Cause me to agree to what I know is best for me
    Please save me from myself
    I need you to save me from myself
    Please save me from myself so I can heal

    The choices that I have made
    Oh have been nothing but mistakes
    What a wasted use of space
    Should I die before I wake?
    In all of my religion
    I've fortified this prison
    Obligated to obey
    The demands of bad decisions
    Please save me from myself
    I need you to save me from myself
    Please save me from myself so I can heal
    And then he came

    Selah
    And it means
    Praise and Meditation
    And then he came
    Selah
    And it means
    Did ya think about that?

    Night Ranger - Goodbye...

    As the sun hides his head
    For another nights rest
    And the wind sings
    His same old song
    And you on the edge
    Never close, never far
    Always there when I needed a friend
    Yet it's hard living life
    On this memory-go-round
    Always up, always down
    Spinning 'round and 'round and 'round
    And all this could be
    Just a dream so it seems
    I was never much good at goodbye
    There once was a time
    Never far from my mind
    On the beach, on the 4th of July
    I remember the sand
    How you held out your hand
    And we touched for what seemed a lifetime
    Now it's hard
    Leaving all this behind me now
    Like a schoolboy so lost
    Never found until now
    And all this could be
    Just a dream so it seems
    I was never much good at goodbye
    Yet it's hard
    Living life on this memory-go-round
    Always up, always down
    Turning 'round and 'round and 'round
    And all this could be
    Just a dream so it seems
    I was never much good at goodbye
    And all this could be
    Just a dream so it seems
    I was never much good at goodbye
    Goodbye

    O.C. Supertones, "Grounded"

    I strike back like the empire and we'll televise the revolution.
    What will save you from divine retribution?
    Do our part, try to make a contribution
    Playin' at 11, givin' OC noise pollution.
    Think long and hard about our world today...
    what needs to be said, and what I need to say.
    We're a tower of Babel built on anti-philosophy,
    Neitzche in the west and Krishna in the east.

    War rages on through generations.
    All of these Christians abandoned their stations.
    A whole world around us, and we've ceased to reach.
    An army of soldiers, we've neglected to teach.
    But, it's dim and not pitch black. The truth will prevail.
    If our God is for us, how can we fail?
    No surer hope has ever been rested.
    But our adversary's worthy, prepare to be tested.

    Chorus:
    Hoo, Hah. How will you stand if you don't understand?
    Hoo, Hah. Fight like a man, scriptures in hand.

    And here we stand naked, barehanded
    Futily prepared for the blows to be landed.
    Presuppositions is all you can stand on.
    Can you twist their wrist when they lay a hand on?
    Learn how to fight from words on a paper.
    learn from the shoguns, Bahnsen and Schaeffer.
    Invincible army, Holy Spirit our general.
    Weapons are formed from most precious of minerals.

    Chorus

    Kids in universities, drowning in an ocean
    of apostate philosophy. We need
    Apologetic instruction, mental reconstruction,
    Ignorance reduction, to halt the mass abduction.
    Evangelical mind has been scandalized.
    Wisdom and truth have been vandalized, by the unevangelized.
    No truth in the world is randomized.
    Expose the lies no matter how they're disguised.

    Chorus

    Brick
    by Ben Folds Five

    6 am day after Christmas
    I throw some clothes on in the dark
    The smell of cold
    Car seat is freezing
    The world is sleeping
    I am numb

    Up the stairs to her apartment
    She is balled up on the couch
    Her mom and dad went down to Charlotte
    they're not home to find us out

    And we drive
    Now that I have found someone
    I'm feeling more alone
    Than I ever have before

    She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly
    Off the coast and I'm heading nowhere
    She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly

    they call her name at 7:30
    I pace around the parking lot
    then I walk down to buy her flowers
    And sell some gifts that I got

    Can't you see
    It's not me you're dying for
    Now she's feeling more alone
    Then she ever has before

    She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly
    off the coast and I'm headed nowhere
    She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly

    As weeks went by
    It showed that she was not fine
    They told me son it's time to tell the truth and
    She broke down and I broke down
    Cause I was tired of lying

    Driving home to her apartment
    For the moment we're alone
    She's alone
    I'm alone
    Now I know it

    She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly
    Off the coast and I'm heading nowhere
    She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly

    I Fucking Hate You



    For everything you do
    I'd like to swallow you
    And everyday I'm gonna blame you
    Even if you justify
    Every fucking bullshit lie
    It only makes me want to break you
    You pull me down
    And you crucify my name
    You make me insane
    It's broken now
    Don't ever look my way
    Don't even think I'm playin'
    'Cause I fucking hate you
    You're such a liar
    And I love to hate you
    You're all the same to me
    When you repeatedly
    Take advantage of me
    The only thought I get of you sickens me
    Everybody knows you're fake
    You're everything I fucking hate
    And I'm everything that you could never be
    You pull me down
    And you crucify my name
    You make me insane
    It's broken now
    Don't ever look my way
    Don't even think I'm playin'
    'Cause I fucking hate you
    You're such a liar
    And I love to hate you
    You're all the same to me
    I fucking you hate you
    You're such a liar
    And I love to hate you
    You're all the same to me
    (Fuck you)
    (Fuck you)
    (Fuck you)
    You pull me down
    And you crucify my name
    You make me insane
    It's broken now
    Don't ever look my way
    Don't even think I'm playin'
    'Cause I fucking hate you
    You're such a liar
    And I love to hate you
    You're all the same to me
    And I fucking hate
    You're such a liar
    And I love to hate you
    You're all the same to me
    Fuck you (fuck you)
    Fuck you (fuck you)
    Fuck you (fuck you)
    Fuck you (fuck you)​
