9:15 pm - Tracing by JM

I love these lyrics, I thought I'd put them in cos everyone seems to know about John Mayer, so I figure you all know his more mainstream songs, but this one, "Tracing," isn't on an album, and it's wonderfully philosophical and sensitive. I love the way he points out specific things that tell you exactly what he's talking about, like the phone number thing in this, things that people can relate to, it's incredible how he does that in every song.

Do you ever get the feeling
That we started in the middle?
Or have you ever had the sense
That we've been lying just a little?
I mean come on
It's not like we've known ourselves that long

And I can't say I really blame you
For being bored with the beginning
Always staring at the score
To figure out who’s barely winning
But don't you know
There is a reason the strong move slow

And I'm okay
If you're okay with wasting time
But when you trace
You always see the bottom line

We are tracing
I hope you know
We are tracing
And if you want to know the moment
I knew that I was still alone
I found I never learned your number
I only stored it in my phone
You'd think by now
I'd know the shape of calling home

current mood: a lil icky

hey, i'm brand new to lj and all this new stuff, found this community and because the lyrics of songs are the most important part of music to me, i knew i had to join. There are two people i wanna tell you about for now. If you haven't heard of a guy called Damien Rice you are missing out big time, his music is beautiful and experimental but more importantly his lyrics are heartbrakeingly perfect and his voice sounds like it's been carved from something ancient thats experienced everything and has the weariness to prove it it would be impossible to pick one song to rep him but i love cannonball always have always will these are the lyrics

cannonball- damien rice
Still a little bit of your taste in my mouth
Still a little bit of you laced with my doubt
Still a little hard to say what's going on

Still a little bit of your ghost, your weakness
Still a little bit of your face I haven't kissed
You step a little closer each day
I can’t say what's going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love, taught me to lie
Life taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannonball

Still a little bit of your song in my ear
Still a little bit of your words I long to hear
You step a little closer to me
So close that I can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love, taught me to lie
Life taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannon..
Stones taught me to fly
Love, taught me to cry
So come on courage
Teach me to be shy
'Cause it's not hard to fall
And I don't wanna scare her
It's not hard to fall
And I don't wanna lose
It's not hard to grow
When you know that you just don't know

also i have just discovered tadgh cooke another excellent irish Troubadour his new single has a great start it goes like this

i know you hate me but i don't mind
cos i stole your money yeah i robbed you blind
it's kinda funny that i did it to you
the girl who robbed my love and stabbed me too

it's actually quite an upbeat funny song- i swear

anyway i have been going on quite a bit i hope i find lots of like minded lyric lovers here... i saw alot of john mayer icons so thats encouraging anyway

4:26 pm - My Favorite Song by Ani Difranco

Not A Pretty Girl

i am not a pretty girl
that is not what i do
i aint no damsel in distress
and i dont need to be rescued
so put me down, punk
wouldn't you prefer a maiden fair?
isn't there a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere?

i am not an angry girl
but it seems like i've got everyone fooled
everytime i say something they find hard to hear
they chalk it up to my anger
never to their own fear
and imagine you're a girl
just trying to finally come clean
knowing full well they'd prefer you were dirty
and smiling
and i am sorry, but i am not a maiden fair
and i am not a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere

and generally, my generation
wouldn't be caught dead working for the man
and generally i agree with them
trouble is you've got to have yourself an alternate plan
and i have earned my disillusionment
i have been working all of my life
and i am a patriot
i have been fighting the good fight
and what if there are no damsels in distress
what if i knew that, and i called your bluff?

dont you think every kitten
figures out how to get down
whether or not you EVER SHOW UP. . .

Sometimes I wish that i was a bong hit,
you'd let me in and you would love every minute
and tell the room the things i did to you

jack and jill they went up that hill
but it wasn't for a bucket of water
daddy said boy i've had enough of your thrill
now stay away from my daughter
jack he went home, he was all alone
thought this ain't the way life is supposed to be
jill she cried to him on the phone
jack baby won't you come rescue me
'cause i'm so in love it hurts so bad
you're the best damn lover that i've ever had
and i miss you, i miss you
jack baby won't you tell me what to do

hi everyone, i just joined because i love music...especially songs with lyrics that actually mean something to me.....so this seemed like a good place for me :)

I don't feel the suns comin out today
It's staying in, it's gonna find another way.
As I sit here in this misery,
I don't think I'll ever see the sun from here.
And oh as I fade away,
They'll all look at me and say, and they'll say,
"Hey look at him! I'll never live that way."
But that's okay, they're just afraid to change.
And when you feel life ain't worth living
You've got to stand up and
Take a look around you look up way to the sky.
And when your deepest thoughts are broken,
Keep on dreaming boy, cause when you stop dreamin it's time to die.
And as we all play parts of tomorrow,
some ways we'll work and other ways we'll play.
But I know we can't all stay here forever,
So I want to write my words on the face of today.
And then they'll paint it
And oh as I fade away,
They'll all look at me and say, they'll say,
"Hey look at him and where he is these days."
When life is hard, you have to change.

-Blind Melon "Change"

'Cause I'm just trouble shooting in New Orleans
I got the same bad connections
And the same sweet dreams
And I can't sleep at night to save my life
I can't close my eyes
With the whisper I'm drawn to the cooling skies

And maybe we'll walk, maybe we'll run
I can't decide
Cause I'm so awake
And so alive

(this one goes out to kat
my insomniac friend)

3:00 pm - Hi

Hi, I know this is kinda a small community probably between all friends, but i was bored and searching around livejournal and found it. I'd thought if it was ok id join too. I like to hear good music, so i am hoping to find some more good new tunes here! Yeah and i love John Mayer thats really what made me come here. Anyways if its not cool that i joined then no problem just tell me! I live in Florida so i don't know any of you! But ok thats enough for now!

"hello, lady fair.
please excuse my rudeness I don't mean to stare,
but I believe you caught me in a moment there--
staring deep into your eyes.
let me just explain the way that you're lookin'
sent a message to my brain
sayin' if I let you go that I might be insane,
so I'm holdin' on.

do you believe in love at first sight?
yes. I do.
cuz this just might be your chance tonight.

now everyday at three,
I look out my window to watch you smile at me.
you drive me crazy and you know I can't believe
that you're finally mine
then afterwards at four,
I fall into my bed and I play it back once more
to make sure i'm not dead or that I fell into a dream
like I have before.

do you believe in love at first sight?
yes. I do.
cuz this just might be your chance tonight.

you got me hanging on every word you say
can't help to hope that you might be mine someday
or maybe I'm just dreamin' too big
like the teachers used to say..."

current mood: blissful

hurrikane_ga "I'm not alone
I wish I was
cause then I'd know I was down because
I couldn't find a friend around
to love me like they do right now
they do right now
I'm dizzy from the shopping mall
I searched for joy but I bought it all
it doesn't help the hunger pain
and a thirst I'd have to drown first to ever satiate
something's missing
and i don't know how to fix it
something's missing
and i don't know what it is
at all"

"If only you could feel what i dream
Maybe you could hear what I mean
there is nothing gone but there's something missing
Can't you see that I'm stuck here underneath
And you're making it hard to breathe
take a look around and tell me what you see
You'll find me underneath
Said you'll find me underneath"

am I the only one that gets it now?

current mood: blank

1:16 pm - so tired of being alone...
"after all the crushes have faded
all my wishful thinking was wrong
I'm jaded; I hate it.
I'm tired of being alone,
so hurry up and get here
I'm so tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here...

I'm searchin' all my days just to find you
not sure who i'm lookin' for
I'll know when, when I see you
until then I'll hide in my bedroom
stayin' up all night just to write
a love song for no one
I'm tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here
so tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here...

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
could I have missed my chance
and watched you walk away?"

current mood: hopeful

3:23 am - Give It To You

"You say its been too long
since you, had some
You say I turn you on
like a fire that's burning inside
You think that I'm the one
You see in your dreams
I know what you mean yeah
It's creepin around in your head
me holding you down in my bed
You don't have to say a word
I'm convinced you want this
Baby you know I can give it to you
I can't deny, you do it right
Just let me know and I'll give it to you
Just show me where, I'll take you there
Baby you know that I'll give it to you
Your body needs a man like me
Anything goes when I give it to you
You know without a doubt, I'll turn you out
I'll give it to you
The feeling is fine, giving you everything of mine
I'm the place to be
and soon, you'll see
I don't care who leads
As long as we move horizontally
Anyone can make you sweat
But I, can keep you wet
It's creepin around in my head
Me holding you down in my bed
I can't wait to give you some
I'm convinced you need it
It's creepin around in my head
Me holding you down in my bed
You don't have to say a word
Just relax, I'll do the work
I can't wait to give you some
I'm convinced you need one
I want to satisfy your every wish and mine baby
I know just what you need,(you need)to get you off
No one could ever do you like I do you right baby
There's nothing we can't do.....
The feeling is fine giving you everything of mine"

current mood: horny

hurrikane_ga "i know a girl
she put the color inside of my world
but she's just like a maze
where all of the walls all continually change
and i've done all i can
to stand on her steps with my heart in my hand
now i'm starting to see
maybe it's got nothing to do with me

fathers, be good to your daughters
daughters will love like you do
girls become lovers who turn into mothers
so mothers, be good to your daughters too."

john mayer makes me feel happy to be a girl.
he seems to always know the right thing to say.

9:05 pm - i'm addicted
apparently , i'm addicted to live journal. I blame kat. somehow it's her fault.

anyways, I was looking for a community where people just posted lyrics that were pretty or sound nice or even just made you feel or think something.

I'm not going to say there isn't one but I got tired of looking. when I thought about my laziness and weighed it out, it seemed like less work to just go ahead and make my own.

so in the vein of procrastination, I created this thing instead of writing my paper.
I wanna have people post quotes or lyrics that are funny, sweet, beautiful, interesting, or whatever. as long as it's meaningful to you. and probably comment on how it makes you feel and such.

i dunno. go crazy... but not too crazy. be careful. don't hurt yourself.

now, homework for me.

any ideas for an icon for the community?
and also artists to add to the interests?

current mood: ecstatic
