Kelly Clarkson- “Dark Side”

There’s a place that I know

It’s not pretty there and few have ever gone

If I show it to you now

Will it make you run away

Or will you stay

Even if it hurts

Even if I try to push you out

Will you return?

And remind me who I really am

Please remind me who I really am

Everybody’s got a dark side

Do you love me?

Can you love mine?

Nobody’s a picture perfect

But we’re worth it

You know that we’re worth it

Will you love me?

Even with my dark side?

Like a diamond

From black dust

It’s hard to know

It can become

If you give up

So don’t give up on me

Please remind me who I really am

Everybody’s got a dark side

Do you love me?

Can you love mine?

Nobody’s a picture perfect

But we’re worth it

You know that we’re worth it

Will you love me?

Even with my dark side?

Don’t run away

Don’t run away

Just tell me that you will stay

Promise me you will stay

Don’t run away

Don’t run away

Just promise me you will stay

Promise me you will stay

Will you love me?

Everybody’s got a dark side

Do you love me?

Can you love mine?

Nobody’s a picture perfect

But we’re worth it

You know that we’re worth it

Will you love me?

Even with my dark side?

And when we were good, you just close your eyes. So when we are bad, we’ll scar your minds
Marilyn Manson - “Fight Song”

I think I’ve finally had enough. I think I maybe think too much.
I think this might be it for us. You think I’m just too serious. I think you’re full of shit. My head is spinning so blow me one last kiss.

Just when it can’t get worse, I’ve had a shit day.
Have you had a shit day? We’ve had a shit day. I think that life’s too short for this. I want back my ignorance and bliss. I think I’ve had enough of this. Blow me one last kiss.

Pink- “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)”

Madonna- “This Used To Be My Playground”

[Chorus:]

This used to be my playground [used to be]

This used to be my childhood dream

This used to be the place I ran to

Whenever I was in need

Of a friend

Why did it have to end

And why do they always say

Don’t look back

Keep your head held high

Don’t ask them why

Because life is short

And before you know

You’re feeling old

And your heart is breaking

Don’t hold on to the past

Well that’s too much to ask

[Chorus:]

Live and learn

Well the years they flew

And we never knew

We were foolish then

We would never tire

And that little fire

Is still alive in me

It will never go away

Can’t say goodbye to yesterday [can’t say goodbye]

[Chorus:]

No regrets

But I wish that you

Were here with me

Well then there’s hope yet

I can see your face

In our secret place

You’re not just a memory

Say goodbye to yesterday [the dream]

Those are words I’ll never say [I’ll never say]

This used to be my playground [used to be]

This used to be our pride and joy

This used to be the place we ran to

That no one in the world could dare destroy

Natalie Imbruglia - “Don’t You Think”

Some people 

Don’t worry 

'bout nothing 

Don’t know what’s going on 

I’m not one 

Who can’t say they’re sorry 

I just care what’s going on 

There’s more important things 

Than making sure your watch looks just right 

And second hand opinions 

Don’t make you look any smarter 

Don’t you think 

Don’t you think 

Don’t you think that maybe 

it’s time , yes it’s time 

Time you started thinking 

Time you started thinking 

And don’t just sweeten up the taste 

Brother shoots brother 

But meanwhile you’re fixing up your face 

You’re not affected by the truth 

Unless it’s on your doorstep 

Deodorise your paradise 

No point in getting crazy 

Don’t you think 

Don’t you think 

Don’t you think that maybe 

It’s time , yes it’s time 

Time you started thinking ‘bout things in the back of your head 

Someone said before you turn a blind eye 

Hear a bell ring sex sells everything 

But I don’t buy it so don’t try it 

Sleeping in the small world head in the sand 

Better wash your hands , make a new plan 

There’s more important things 

Than making sure your shoes just walk right 

Ignore reality there’s nothing you can do about it … 

The clothes you wear don’t make the man 

It’s just another party 

A few people who actually had a message to send

"Strange Fruit"- Billie Holiday (Abel Meeropol)

Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze

Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees

Pastoral scene of the gallant south

The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth

The scent of magnolia sweet and fresh

Then the sudden smell of burning flesh

image

"Spear & Magic Helmet"- The Gits

You said, “You’ve been a bad girl,”

Then you slapped her right across the face

What could be going through your mind

This does no one good

I suggest you buy a cage

Cause I’m full of rage

Then you raped her

You left her in the alleyway

Invincible- “Sledgehammer!”

"Each generation must find its mission, fulfill or betray it."

I know that ours is more than just being killers or players

Or making millions of papers

Our blood is spilling

They hate us

Too much injustice among us to sit still ‘n’ complacent

"Long Day"- Matchbox 20

It’s sitting by the overcoat,

The second shelf, the note she wrote

That I can’t bring myself to throw away

And also,

Reach she said for no one else but you,

'Cause you won't turn away

When someone else is gone

I’m sorry ‘bout the attitude

I need to give when I’m with you

But no one else would take this shit from me

And I’m so,

Terrified of no one else but me

I’m here all the time

I won’t go away

It’s me, yeah well I can’t get myself to go away

Hey it’s me, and I can’t get myself to go away

Oh God, I shouldn’t feel this way

[Chorus]

Reach down your hand in your pocket

Pull out some hope for me

It’s been a long day, always ain’t that right

And no lord, your hand won’t stop it

Just keep you trembling

It’s been a long day, always ain’t that right

Well I’m surprised that you’d believe

In anything that comes from me

I didn’t hear from you or from someone else

And your so,

Set in life man, a pisser they’re waiting

Too damn bad you get so far so fast

So what, so long

[Chorus]

Oh, ain’t that right

It’s me, yeah well I can’t myself to go away

Hey, well it’s me, yeah well I can’t get myself to go away

Oh God I shouldn’t feel this way, now

[Chorus]

Reach down your hand in your pocket

Well, reach down your hand right now

It’s been a long day, always

Ain’t that right

Reach down your hand in your pocket

Well, reach down your hand right now

It’s been a long day, always

Ain’t that right

Oh, ain’t that right

Well, ain’t that right, right, right on

Looking through this point of view, there’s no way I’m gonna fit in. Don’t you tell me what my eyes see. Don’t you tell me who to believe in. I ain’t superstitious, but I know when something’s wrong.
I’ve been draggin’ my heels with a bitch called “hope”.
Let the undercurrent drag me along.
Can I face the day when I’m tortured in my trust?
And watch it crystallize while my salvation, it crumbles to dust.
"In a Darkened Room"- Skid Row

There’s something that I can’t quite explain

I’m so in love with you

You’ll never take that away

And if I’ve said it a hundred times before

Expect a thousand more

You’ll never take that away

Well expect me to be

Calling you to see

If you’re OK when I’m not around

Asking “if you love me”

I love the way you make it sound

Calling you to see

Do I try too hard to make you smile?

To make us smile

I will keep calling you to see

If you’re sleeping, are you dreaming

If you’re dreaming, are you dreaming of me

I can’t believe you actually picked me

I thought that the world had lost it’s sway

It’s so hard sometimes

Then I fell in love with you

Then came you

And you took that away

It’s not so difficult

The world is not so difficult

You take away the old

Show me the new

And I feel like I can fly when I stand next to you

So while I’m on this phone

A hundred miles from home

I’ll take the words you gave me and send them back to you

I only want to see

If you’re OK when I’m not around

Asking “if you love me”

I love the way you make it sound

Calling you to see

Do I try too hard to make you smile?

To make us smile

Things I like
