#Lyrics Just Give Me a Reason-Pink

Right from the start
You were a thief, you stole my heart
And I your willing victim
I let you see the parts of me, that weren’t all that pretty
And with every touch you fixed them
Now you’ve been talking in your sleep oh oh
Things you never say to me oh oh
Tell me that you’ve had enough
Of our love, our love
Just give me a reason, just a little bit’s enough
Just a second we’re not broken just bent, and we can learn to love again
It’s in the stars, it’s been written in the scars on our hearts
We’re not broken just bent, and we can learn to love again
I’m sorry I don’t understand
Where all of this is coming from
I thought that we were fine (Oh we had everything)
Your head is running wild again
My dear we still have everythin’
And it’s all in your mind (Yeah but this is happenin’)
You’ve been havin’ real bad dreams oh oh
You used to lie so close to me oh oh
There’s nothing more than empty sheets between our love, our love
Oh our love, our love
Just give me a reason, just a little bit’s enough
Just a second we’re not broken just bent and we can learn to love again
I never stop, you’re still written in the scars on my heart
You’re not broken just bent and we can learn to love again
Oh tear ducts and rust
I’ll fix it for us
We’re collecting dust, but our love’s enough
You’re holding it in
You’re pouring a drink
No nothing is as bad as it seems
We’ll come clean
Just give me a reason just a little bit’s enough
Just a second we’re not broken just bent and we can learn to love again
It’s in the stars, it’s been written in the scars on our hearts
That we’re not broken just bent and we can learn to love again
Just give me a reason, just a little bit’s enough
Just a second we’re not broken just bent, and we can learn to love again
It’s in the stars, it’s been written in the scars on our hearts
That we’re not broken just bent, and we can learn to love again
Oh we can learn to love again
Oh we can learn to love again oh oh
Oh that we’re not broken just bent and we can learn to love
The song is about desire to hold onto a relationship even when it appears to be breaking down
This song has meant a lot to me. Unfortunately, I tend to blow arguments way out of proportion and I think every thing I fuss about will be the last argument. That I ruined my relationship. And when I listen to this song during an argument I feel like maybe I am not being so awful that maybe we can get passed this.
Please note that I have been with my husband for 9 years. I have always thought that any argument is the ‘big’ one. It never is. We always work things out. It is my anxiety that makes me feel like I messed up, that we are having the big one. Yay for anxiety right.

#Lyric Are We All We Are-Pink

Oh
Oh
Are we all we are
Are we all we are
Cut to now holy wow
When did everything become such a hell of a mess?
Maybe now, maybe now
Can somebody come and take this off my chest?
I know you think it’s not your problem
I know you think that God will solve them
But if your shit is not together it’ll never be
You and me
Plant the seed
Open up and let it be
We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (Rest of)

Oh
We’ve had our fill
We’ve had enough
We’ve had it up to here
Are we all we are
Are we all we are
We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (Rest of)

Oh
Just sing it loud until the kids will sing it right back
Are we all we are
Are we all we are

Oh
Oh
Are we all we are
Are we all we are

Seven seconds
Seven seconds
That is all the time you got to make your point
My attention, my attention’s like an infant tryin’ to crawl around this joint
I know I’m better than the masses
But we’re all followin’ our asses
And if our shit is not together
It’ll never be
You and me
Plant the seed
Open up and let it be
We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (Rest of)

Oh
We’ve had our fill
We’ve had enough
We’ve had it up to here
Are we all we are
Are we all we are
We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (rest of)
Oh
Just sing it loud until the kids will sing it right back
Are we all we are
Are we all we are

Four, that’s how many years it took me to get through the lesson
That I had to do it all my own
Three, that’s how many Hail Mary’s they would pay for me
Thinkin’ I was gonna end up all alone
Two, for second chances that you’ve given me
Can it be lucky me, lucky me
Now let’s go
One, it’s what we are, it’s what we are

Are we all we are
Are we all we are
We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (Rest of)

Oh
We’ve had our fill
We’ve had enough
We’ve had it up to here
Are we all we are
Are we all we are
We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (Rest of)
Oh
Just sing it loud until the kids will sing it right back
Are we all we are
Are we all we are
We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (Rest of)
Oh
We’ve had our fill
We’ve had enough
We’ve had it up to here
Are we all we are
Are we all we are

We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (Rest of)
Oh
Cut to the future sing it loud and take the power back
Are we all we are
Are we all we are

Self empowerment anthem. Stand up for yourself message

I absolutely love this song. the beat is so amazing. Its upbeat and empowering. It’s a song I want to listen to when I need to feel better about myself. I already have a low self esteem and anxiety makes it that much worse. I love Pink. She’s just her. I mean she doesn’t ever conform to what society thinks she should be. She does what she wants. She sings what she wants. She is amazing and such a role model.

#Lyrics Shut Up-Simple Plan


There You Go
You’re always so right
It’s all a big show
It’s all about you

You think you know
What everyone needs
You always take time
To criticize me

It seems like everyday
I make mistakes
I just can’t get it right
It’s like I’m the one
You love to hate
But not today

So shut up, shut up, shut up
Don’t want to hear it
Get out get out get out
Get out of my way
Step up step up step up
You’ll never stop me
Nothing you say today
Is gonna bring me down

There you go
You never ask why
It’s all a big lie
Whatever you do

You think you’re special
But i know and I know and I know
And we know
That you’re not

You’re always there to point out
My mistakes
And shove them in my face
It’s like I’m the one you love to hate
But not today

So shut up, shut up, shut up
Don’t want to hear it
Get out get out get out
Get out of my way
Step up step up step up
You’ll never stop me
Nothing you say today
Is gonna bring me down

Don’t tell me who I should be
And don’t try to tell me what’s right for me
Don’t tell me what I should do
I don’t want to waste my time
I’ll watch you fade away

So shut up, shut up, shut up
Don’t want to hear it
Get out get out get out
Get out of my way
Step up step up step up
You’ll never stop me
Nothing you say today
Is gonna bring me down

so shut up, shut up, shut up
Don’t want to hear it
Get out get out get out
Get out of my way
Step up step up step up
You’ll never stop me
Nothing you say
Is gonna bring me down

Bring me down (shut up, shut up, shut up)
Bring me down
Bring me down(shut up shut up shut up)
Shut up, Shut up, Shut up!

This song shows how people don’t want to be what others want them to be.

This song used to be my anthem for people who use to tell me who I needed to be. Or trying to be my parent just because all I had was my mom. This was my song. I know its not like the best song out there but its good. It might be repetative but its such a good song

#Lyrics Perfect-Simple Plan

Hey, Dad, look at me
Think back, and talk to me
Did I grow up according to plan?
And do you think I’m wasting my time
Doing things I want to do?
But it hurts when you disapproved all along
And now I try hard to make it
I just want to make you proud
I’m never gonna be good enough for
You can’t pretend that I’m alright
And you can’t change me
‘Cause we lost it all
Nothin’ lasts forever
I’m sorry I can’t be perfect
Now it’s just too late
And we can’t go back
I’m sorry I can’t be perfect
I try not to think
About the pain I feel inside
Did you know you used to be my hero?
All the days you spent with me
Now seem so far away
And it feels like you don’t care any more
And now I try hard to make it
I just want to make you proud
I’m never gonna be good enough for you
I can’t stand another fight
And nothing’s all right
‘Cause we lost it all
And nothin’ lasts forever
I’m sorry I can’t be perfect
Now it’s just too late
And we can’t go back
I’m sorry I can’t be perfect
Nothing’s gonna change the things that you said
And nothing’s gonna make this right again
Please don’t turn your back
I can’t believe it’s hard just to talk to you
But you don’t understand
‘Cause we lost it all
Nothin’ lasts forever
I’m sorry I can’t be perfect
Now it’s just too late
And we can’t go back
I’m sorry I can’t be perfect
‘Cause we lost it all
Nothin’ lasts forever
I’m sorry I can’t be perfect
Now it’s just too late
And we can’t go back
I’m sorry I can’t be perfect
The drummers parents weren’t supportive of his career choice so he and the lead singer wrote this song to prove that they could make it and to say sorry.
But to fans…. it took a much more deeper meaning. It was more. It was every teenage angst feeling.  I know it is how I felt a lot through my puberty years. My teenage years. My so called rebellion years (I wasn’t that rebellious.) I wanted to be perfect but I can never be perfect. I wanted to make my mom proud. I wanted to make my brothers proud but it just wasn’t in the cards for me. I mean… I am still trying but it doesn’t hold as much disappointment as it did then. I know now that all I can do is try my best every single day.

#Lyrics Walk Away-Good Charlotte

I made this bed
I choose to lie in it
Live with my regrets
Sleep with what I said
Could this be the end
I’m standing on the edge of everything I wanted now
I was afraid
I was afraid
Maybe I’m just scared to face the things I fear
It’s easier to walk away from everything
Separate my soul with all the things we shared
I’m falling to pieces
Now say a prayer for me (Say a prayer for me)
When you go to bed (’cause)
I’m in need of your faith now
I was afraid
Maybe I’m just scared to face the things I fear
It’s easier to walk away from everything
If we could just re-set and live in happiness
Instead of out regrets, We would salvage everything
We don’t have to walk away
Pray for me now, I’m in need of faith
Pray for me now, I’m in need
Maybe I’m just scared to face the things I feared
It’s easier to walk away from everything
If we could just re-set and live in happiness
Instead of out regrets, We’d salvage everything
Maybe I’m just scared to face the things I failed
It’s easier to walk away from everything
Walk away from everything
Walk away from everything
This song is about how everyone has their demons and how sometimes you feel it is better to walk away but its not always that simple and sometimes you just have to face them.
I remember when this album came out. I really do… I was in Middle School and my group of friends thought it was the best album of the year…We just had to have it. But not the life version. The Death version was the one to go to. That album… there was just so many good songs on there. Like S.O.S, Walk Away, We Believe…darn now i’m going to have to pull it out and listen to it

#Lyrics Emotionless-Good Charlotte

 

Hey dad
I’m writing to you
Not to tell you, that I still hate you
Just to ask you
How you feel
And how we fell apart
How this fell apart
Are you happy out there in this great wide world?
Do you think about your sons?
Do you miss your little girl?
When you lay your head down
How do you sleep at night?
Do you even wonder if we’re all right?
But we’re all right
We’re all right
It’s been a long hard road without you by my side
Why weren’t you there all the nights that we cried
You broke my mother’s heart
You broke your children for life
It’s not okay,
But we’re alright
I remember the days, you were a hero in my eyes
But those were just a long lost memory of mine
I spent so many years learning how to survive
Now, I’m writing just to let you know that I’m still alive
The days I spent so cold, so hungry
Were full of hate
I was so angry
Those scars run deep inside this tattooed body
There’s things I’ll take, to my grave
But I’m okay
I’m okay
It’s been a long hard road without you by my side
Why weren’t you there all the nights that we cried
You broke my mother’s heart
You broke your children for life
It’s not okay,
But we’re all right
I remember the days, you were a hero in my eyes
But those were just a long lost memory of mine
Now, I’m writing just to let you know that I’m still alive
Yeah, I’m still alive
Sometimes
I forgive
Yeah and this time
I’ll admit
That I miss you, said I miss you
It’s been a long hard road without you by my side
Why weren’t you there all the nights that we cried
You broke my mother’s heart
You broke your children for life
It’s not okay,
But we’re all right
I remember the days, you were a hero in my eyes
But those were just a long lost memory of mine
Now, I’m writing just to let you know that were still alive
And sometimes
I forgive
And this time
I’ll admit, that I miss you, miss you
Hey dad
Joel and Benji Madden wrote this as a letter to their dad after he cheated on their mom and walked out on them when they were 16…. It is a powerful song.
And heres where I get personal with you guys… no judgement right.
My dad was abusive. He beat my mom…he beat my brothers. He was an alcoholic…he was mostly an ass.
My mom….being the strong badass that she is….left him when I was a toddler. Honestly she was afraid of what type of abuse he would subject me to. Now as many of you know… He passed away before thanksgiving.
Growing up without my dad. I always had these questions. Like who was he. What type of person was he. Did he love me. did he miss me. Why wasn’t he around. You know typical kid questions… When I first heard this song.. I cried… but I couldn’t do it publicly because my brothers still resented him for the abuse. It was difficult. I understand that and he had some awful responses to why he did what he did. But he was my dad so being an emotional person… I wanted to know… him…answers…everything… but I didn’t have any of them.
And now… I will never have my answers… So this song is even more painful. But I love me some Good Charlotte.

#Lyrics Lithium-Nirvana

I’m so happy because today
I’ve found my friends
They’re in my head
I’m so ugly, but that’s okay, ’cause so are you
We’ve broken our mirrors
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care
And I’m not scared
Light my candles in a daze
‘Cause I’ve found god
Hey, hey, hey
I’m so lonely but that’s okay I shaved my head
And I’m not sad
And just maybe I’m to blame for all I’ve heard
But I’m not sure
I’m so excited, I can’t wait to meet you there
But I don’t care
I’m so horny but that’s okay
My will is good
Hey, hey, hey
I like it, I’m not gonna crack
I miss you, I’m not gonna crack
I love you, I’m not gonna crack
I killed you, I’m not gonna crack
I like it, I’m not gonna crack
I miss you, I’m not gonna crack
I love you, I’m not gonna crack
I killed you, I’m not gonna crack
I’m so happy ’cause today
I’ve found my friends,
They’re in my head
I’m so ugly, that’s okay, ’cause so are you,
Broke our mirrors
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care,
And I’m not scared
Light my candles in a daze
‘Cause I’ve found god
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I like it, I’m not gonna crack
I miss you, I’m not gonna crack
I love you, I’m not gonna crack
I killed you, I’m not gonna crack
I like it, I’m not gonna crack
I miss you, I’m not gonna crack
I love you, I’m not gonna crack
I killed you, I’m not gonna crack
This is a song pretty much about a lot of self loathing….I’m so ugly thats ok cause so are you…. As someone who has a very low amount of self esteem…it is kind of relating to me….
Cobain once said that this is a song that takes the voice of a man who is on the verge of killing himself… when you hear that…it gives the song a whole new outlook….
I am going to be honest….I love Nirvana. They were the mascot…the leader..the spokesman of the angst era.. I loved it. And I loved Cobain… Now here is where it gets a little sad… I was a toddler when Cobain died….So I experienced all of the glory that is Nirvana…after Cobain died. I vaguely remember watching MTV with my brothers when Smells Like Teen Spirit came on.. but that was years ago.
I could listen to a number of Nirvana songs over and over and over and over… Cobain was very talented.

#Lyrics Believer-Imagine Dragons


First things first

I’ma say all the words inside my head
I’m fired up and tired of the way that things have been, oh ooh
The way that things have been, oh ooh
Second thing 
Second, don’t you tell me what you think that I can be
I’m the one at the sail, I’m the master of my sea, oh ooh
The master of my sea, oh ooh

I was broken from a young age
Taking my sulking to the masses
Write down my poems for the few
That looked at me took to me, shook to me, feeling me
Singing from heart ache from the pain
Take up my message from the veins
Speaking my lesson from the brain
Seeing the beauty through the

You made me a, you made me a believer, believer
(Pain, pain)
You break me down, you build me up, believer, believer
(Pain)
I let the bullets fly, oh let them rain
My life, my love, my drive, it came from
(Pain)
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer

Third things third
Send a prayer to the ones up above
All the hate that you’ve heard has turned your spirit to a dove, oh ooh
Your spirit up above, oh ooh

I was choking in the crowd
Living my brain up in the cloud
Falling like ashes to the ground
Hoping my feelings, they would drown
But they never did, ever lived, ebbing and flowing
Inhibited, limited
‘Til it broke up and it rained down
It rained down, like

You made me a, you made me a believer, believer
(Pain, pain)
You break me down, you built me up, believer, believer
(Pain)
I let the bullets fly, oh let them rain
My life, my love, my drive, it came from
(Pain)
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer

Last things last
By the grace of the fire and the flames
You’re the face of the future, the blood in my veins, oh ooh
The blood in my veins, oh ooh
But they never did, ever lived, ebbing and flowing
Inhibited, limited
‘Til it broke up and it rained down
It rained down, like

You made me a, you made me a believer, believer
(Pain, pain)
You break me down, you built me up, believer, believer
(Pain)
I let the bullets fly, oh let them rain
My life, my love, my drive, it came from
(Pain)
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer

 

This is a song about dealing with emotional problems. It is about rising above that and finding a place of perspective where pain can become strength… As someone with anxiety its a song that hits home when I just want to try to find a song that expresses my need to find peace.

#Lyrics Never Have To Say Goodbye-Papa Roach

‘Cause when you took your last breath
I was high, I was running away
You always call me on the phone
But I never pick up
I never wanted you to know
I was running out of love
You didn’t walk out, you didn’t give up on me

So even if you’re coming out
I’m not giving up on you
We never have to say goodbye
‘Cause I can feel you from the afterlife
And I just wanna say, that every single day
You make me take a deeper look inside
If everything you say it’s true
Then I would never have to call on you
In every single way
You’re ripping every day
So we never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
We never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
I didn’t have the strength that I needed at the end of the day
‘Cause I was popping every pill
The only one that I was fooling was me
You always loved me when I couldn’t even love myself
No, you never turned away when I was begging for help
I should’ve said thanks
For never given up on me
So even if you’re coming out
I’m not giving up on you
We never have to say goodbye
‘Cause I can feel you from the afterlife
And I just wanna say, that every single day
You make me take a deeper look inside
If everything you say it’s true
Then I would never have to call on you
In every single way
You’re ripping every day
So we never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
We never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
I can hear your voice when I walk through the pain
Show me how to live
Show me that I can change
I can feel you catch me when I fall away
We never have to say goodbye
‘Cause I can feel you from the afterlife
And I just wanna say, that every single day
You make me take a deeper look inside
If everything you say it’s true
Then I would never have to call on you
In every single way
You’re ripping every day
So we never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
We never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
We never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
This is a song about not getting to say your ‘peace’ when someone passes away… it is a very strong song for me personally. Considering I have had a few people pass away that I never got to say goodbye. Two of my cousins…..my grandmother. and most recently my father. It is kind of hard knowing that there was so much that you wanted to say to them and you’ll never get the chance to. Its nice that there are songs like these that allow us to express the way we feel.

#Lyrics Last Resort-Papa Roach

 

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 outta sight
And 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 never realized I was spread too thin
Till 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 up on 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’s alright
Nothing is fine
I’m running and I’m crying
I’m crying
I’m crying
I’m crying
I’m crying
I can’t go on living this way
Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort
Suffocation
No breathing
Don’t give a fuck if I cut my arm, bleeding
Would it be wrong?
Would it be right?
If I took my life tonight
Chances are that I might
Mutilation outta sight
And 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
Nothing’s alright
Nothing is fine
I’m running and I’m crying
I can’t go on living this way
Can’t go on
Living this way
Nothing’s alright
This song takes the perspective of someone who feels frustrated and confused to the point that suicide seems like a valid option…..It is never an option. It is a permanent solution to a temporary problem… That’s something I have heard others say… Suicide doesn’t solve anything. It doesn’t stop the pain. It just transfers that pain to those left behind.
This is a song that helped many people express their darkest thoughts and find a way to overcome their struggles.
I know personally…this is a song that I always find myself coming back to. When I feel like I am at my lowest…when I feel at my worst… this song is something that just allows you to scream. To yell. To just let go of everything. It is a song that you can get lost in.
