Hellsongs - Sin City - live at SOUND OF THE FOREST FESTIVAL 2009

There’ll be no comfort in the shade of the shadows thrown.
You may not trust the promises of the change I’ll show.
But I’d be yours if you’d be mine.
Mumford & Sons - “Lover Of The Light”

"Piece of My Heart" (Janis Joplin/Erma Franklin cover)- Pink

Didn’t I make you feel like you were the only man, well yeah,

An’ didn’t I give you nearly everything that a woman possibly can ?

Honey, you know I did!

And each time I tell myself that I, well I think I’ve had enough,

But I’m gonna show you, baby, that a woman can be tough.

I want you to come on, come on, come on, come on and take it,

Take another little piece of my heart now, baby, (break a..)

Break another little bit of my heart now, darling, yeah. (have a..)

Hey! Have another little piece of my heart now, baby, yeah.

You know you got it if it makes you feel good,

Oh yes indeed.

You’re out on the streets looking good, and baby,

Deep down in your heart I guess you know that it ain’t right,

Never never never never never never never hear me when I cry at night.

Baby, I cry all the time!

And each time I tell myself that I, well I can’t stand the pain,

But when you hold me in your arms, I’ll sing it once again.

I’ll say come on, come on, come on, come on, yeah take it!

Take another little piece of my heart now, baby. (break a..)

Break another little bit of my heart now, darling, yeah, (come on…)

Have another little piece of my heart now, baby, yeah.

Well, You know you got it, child, if it makes you feel good 

I need you to come on, come on, come on, come on and take it,

Take another little piece of my heart now, baby. (break a…)

Break another little bit of my heart, darling, yeah. (have a)

Have another little piece of my heart now, baby,

You know you got it (waaaaahhh)

Take a…Take another little piece of my heart now, baby. (break a…)

Break another little bit of my heart, and darling, yeah yeah (have a)

Have another little piece of my heart now, baby,

You know you got it, child, if it makes you feel good

Alice in chains - Nutshell (Unplugged 1996)

We chase misprinted lies 

We face the path of time 

And yet I fight 

And yet I fight 

This battle all alone 

No one to cry to 

No place to call home 

My gift of self is raped 

My privacy is raked 

And yet I find 

And yet I find 

Repeating in my head 

If I can’t be my own 

I’d feel better dead 

"I’m Trying"- Martina McBride

She said I’m not pointing fingers,

He said yes you are,

Cause you wouldn’t bring it up if you weren’t.

And if I’d told you I’d been walking

Out in the dark night thinking

Would you take as truth this alcoholic’s word?

Oh I can’t change, what’s done is done,

But I can tell you this

Not a day goes by that I don’t curse myself and all my sins

And I need you to hold on too,

While this part of me is dying

Though I haven’t kicked the demons that haunt me,

I’m trying, I’m trying.

She sat down on the floor and said I wish that I was stronger

Right now I feel as fragile as glass.

And I want to believe you,

Believe what’s held you has freed you,

And I hate these doubts that keep on comin’ back.

My parents think I’m crazy for hangin’ on this long,

But there’s nothing I want more for us

Than to prove to them they’re wrong.

And I don’t want to be afraid,

I don’t wanna think you’re lying,

And though I haven’t found the faith that I need,

I’m trying. I’m trying.

He asks do you want me to leave?

Cause if you do you know I will,

But she says, much to his disbelief,

No, I love you still.

Oh, I love you still.

He said I don’t know why I’ve been the fool,

But I can tell you this,

Not a day goes by that I don’t curse myself and all my sins.

Then he dropped down to his knees,

By now they both were crying,

He said, I haven’t been the man I want to be,

But I’m trying. I’m trying. I’m trying, I’m trying.

Cory Chisel “So Wrong For Me”

We’ve waded out

Across the boiling ocean waves

Oh mistakes were made

Your love is so wrong for me

I just keep on tryin’

To tear out my dreams

Nobody knows what nobody sees

I see this way to ruin

I see this way to grace

But I just can’t stand to see the smile on your face

If you thought for a minute I’ve gone the right way

My discourse lay dying

From a life I’ve left undone

Look what I’ve become

Your love is so wrong for me

I just keep on trying

To pull the pen from the page

To pull the words from my mouth 

in a cold fit of rage

But remember me sweetly in the dark of midday

But I’ve never spoke to your skin in such a way

I just I love what I can, then I throw it away

Your love is so wrong for me

I just keep on trying

"Come On Now Inside" - Izzy Stradlin and the Ju Ju Hounds

  Look outside

  I think the sun has come back

  Look outside

  I think it’s come again

  It’s wet and cold

  I wish the sun would come back

  It’s wet and cold

  I wish it would come again

  It’s twenty below

  the ground outside is frozen

  It’s twenty below

  Said old man winter’s here

  Come on now inside and warm me up

  Come on now inside and warm me up

  Come on now inside and warm me up

  Today

  She woke up

  To a coldness from my window

  She woke up

  To a ray of sun come in
