Raegan   Ralls  | 1297 comments "Someone You Love"- Ashrad

Sitting around
And watching time pass by
He's torn in his mind
Trying to survive

There's tears in her eyes
But she doesn't cry
Forever is never
But never give it a try

But I see this light
It's not going out tonight
Our sky is bright
Cause your star shines through the night

Taking a hold
Love each other
Rising to the top
But not further
You can make it
You can make it
Reach out, seize what you own

Cause this life is yours
So take it
Grab it by the horns
And break this cycle now
Be strong
This is what it means to be someone you love

Don’t let anyone ever tell you
You can't do
What you were born to
You can make it
You can make it
This life is yours to own

Shadow, it takes him over and it won’t stop
Controlling all of their minds and tearing them apart
They need to find a way back to who they are
And that day is today

Cause I see this light
It's not going out tonight
Our sky is bright
Cause your star shines through the night

Taking a hold
Love each other
Rising to the top
But not further
You can make it
You can make it
Reach out, seize what you own

Cause this life is yours
So take it
Grab it by the horns
And break this cycle now
Be strong
This is what it means to be someone you love

Don’t let anyone ever tell you
You can't do
What you were born to
You can make it
You can make it
This life is yours to own

Cause this life is yours
So take it
Grab it by the horns
And break this cycle now
Be strong
This is what it means to be someone you love

ClearSkye | 205 comments It's easy to hate,
It's harder to love me
Ya'll don't understand,
Ya'll quickly to judge me
Put your foot in my Nikes,
Picture you livin' my life,
Picture you stuck in a cell,
Picture you wasting your life,
Picture you facing a charge,
Picture you beating the odds,
Picture you willing to bleed,
Picture you wearing the scar
Thank you for making me struggle,
Thank you for making me grind
I perfected my hustle,
Tell me the world ain't mine
You've been seein' me lately,
I'm a miracle baby
I refuse to lose
This what the ghetto done made me
I put that on my father
Tryna hope for tomorrow
When I think that I can't,
I envision Obama,
I envision the diamonds,
I envision Ferraris
If the world was perfect,
All my niggas behind me
Ain't you happy I made it?
That I'm making a statement?
Take a look and you can tell
That I'm destined for greatness

All the above - manio ft t-pain

Reese Kennedy | 18 comments "Castle Of Glass"

Take me down to the river bend
Take me down to the fighting end
Wash the poison from off my skin
Show me how to be whole again

Fly me up on a silver wing
Past the black where the sirens sing
Warm me up in a nova's glow
And drop me down to the dream below

'Cause I'm only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see

Bring me home in a blinding dream,
Through the secrets that I have seen
Wash the sorrow from off my skin
And show me how to be whole again

'Cause I'm only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see

'Cause I'm only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything else I need to be

'Cause I'm only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see
For you to see

I dont know why, but this song always makes me cry

beth (beth01) 5 Seconds of Summer - Amnesia

I drove by all the places we used to hang out getting wasted
I thought about our last kiss, how it felt the way you tasted
And even though your friends tell me you're doing fine

Are you somewhere feeling lonely even though he's right beside you?
When he says those words that hurt you, do you read the ones I wrote you?

Sometimes I start to wonder, was it just a lie?
If what we had was real, how could you be fine?

'Cause I'm not fine at all

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the make-up running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn't need them
Like every single wish we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape

'Cause I'm not fine at all

The pictures that you sent me they're still living in my phone
I'll admit I like to see them, I'll admit I feel alone
And all my friends keep asking why I'm not around

It hurts to know you're happy, yeah, it hurts that you've moved on
It's hard to hear your name when I haven't seen you in so long

It's like we never happened, was it just a lie?
If what we had was real, how could you be fine?

'Cause I'm not fine at all

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the make-up running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn't need them
Like every single wish we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape

If today I woke up with you right beside me
Like all of this was just some twisted dream
I'd hold you closer than I ever did before
And you'd never slip away
And you'd never hear me say

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the make-up running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn't need them
Like every single wish we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape

'Cause I'm not fine at all
No, I'm really not fine at all
Tell me this is just a dream
'Cause I'm really not fine at all

I absolutely love this song. I am obsessed with it at the moment. I have listened to it 7 times so far today!

M Liu (m729549) i remember this one time i was reading pretenders by lisi har, so i decided to listen to the song popular from wicked. it was one of those songs that the tune gets stuck in your head, but for some reason u can't seem to remember how to sing it because of all those twists i the melody, so i proceeded to listening to that song until i've memorized it
hint: 3 x the amount of times i read sea of monsters

message 14: by M (new)

M Liu (m729549) Mr. Know It All
Well you think you know it all
But you don't know a thing at all ain't it
Ain't it something y'all
When somebody tells you something about you
Think that they know you more than you do
So you take it down, another pill to swallow

Mr. Bring Me Down
Well you like to bring me down, don't you
But I ain't laying down
Baby I ain't going down
Can't nobody tell me how it's gonna be
Nobody's gonna make a fool out of me
Baby you should know that I lead not follow

(Chorus)
Oh you think that you know me, know me
that's why I'm leaving you lonely, lonely
'Cause baby you don't know a thing about me
You don't know a thing about me

You ain't got the right to tell me
When and where to go, no right to tell me
Acting like you own me lately
Yeah baby you don't know a thing about me
You don't know a thing about me

Mr. Play Your Games
Only got yourself to blame
When you want me back again
But I ain't falling back again
'Cause I'm living my truth without your lies
Let's be clear baby, this is goodbye
I ain't comin' back tomorrow

(Chorus)
Oh you think that you know me, know me
that's why I'm leaving you lonely, lonely
'Cause baby you don't know a thing about me
You don't know a thing about me

You ain't got the right to tell me
When and where to go, no right to tell me
Acting like you own me lately
Yeah baby you don't know a thing about me
You don't know a thing about me

So what you've got the world at your feet
And you know everything about everything
But you don't
You still think I'm coming back but baby you'll see

(Chorus)
Oh you think that you know me, know me
that's why I'm leaving you lonely, lonely
'Cause baby you don't know a thing about me
You don't know a thing about me

You ain't got the right to tell me
When and where, no right to tell me
Acting like you own me lately
Yeah baby you don't know a thing about me
You don't know a thing about me

Mr. Know It All
Well you you think you know it all
But you don't know a thing at all, ain't it
Yeah baby you don't know a thing about me
You don't know a thing about me

Olivia I love these lyrics SO MUCH! I am a huge fan of Wicked!!!!!
-------------------------------------------------------------------

For Good from the musical Wicked

[ELPHABA:]
I'm limited.
Just look at me.
I'm limited.
And just look at you.
You can do all I couldn't do.
Glinda...
So now it's up to you,
For both of us.
Now it's up to you.

[GLINDA:]
I've heard it said,
That people come into our lives
For a reason
Bringing something we must learn.
And we are lead to those
Who help us most to grow if we let them.
And we help them in return.
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you.

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun,
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood.
Who can say if I've been changed for the better
But because I knew you.
I have been changed for good.

[ELPHABA:]
It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime.
So, let me say before we part:
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you.
You'll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart.
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you'll have rewritten mine
By being my friend.

Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea.
Like a seed dropped by a sky bird
In a distant wood.
Who can say if I've been changed for the better
But because I knew you...

[GLINDA:]
Because I knew you...

[BOTH:]
I have been changed for good.

[ELPHABA:]
And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I've done,
You blamed me for.

[GLINDA:]
But then,
I guess,
We know there's blame to share.

[BOTH:]
And none of it seems to matter anymore.
Like a comet pulled from orbit
(Like a ship blown from its mooring)
As it passes a sun.
(By a wind off the sea)
Like a stream that meets a boulder
(Like a seed dropped by bird)
Halfway through the wood.
(In the wood)
Who can say if I've been changed for the better.
I do believe I have been changed for the better.

[GLINDA:]
And because I knew you...

[ELPHABA:]
Because I knew you...

[BOTH:]
Because I knew you
I have been changed...
For good.
