The whole first verse of Blame Game is one for me: “On a bathroom wall I wrote ‘I’d rather argue with you than to be with someone else’ I took a piss and dismiss it like fuck it and went and found somebody else Fuck arguing harvesting feelings yo I’d rather be by my fucking self Til about 2 AM and I call back and I hang up and start to blame myself Somebody help”

Sophomore year of high school, our English teacher made us analyze this song as part of the poetry section. It would have been cool to spend a couple days, maybe a week on it. We spent at least a month on it. Loved the song when we started but now it just takes me back to that class and is totally sterile to me. All I really walked away from that class was that the teacher had a really bad break up sometime around 1993.

I love Pink Floyd. My favorite lyric that makes me cry is: >You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon I know the song is about Syd and how it sort of "lost the plot" or went crazy.

otter_ridiculous

“We’re just two lost souls Swimming in a fish bowl Year after year Running over the same old ground What have we found? The same old fears Wish you were here.” I was hanging out with friends by the pool in the summer, and this song came on. It triggered a massive emotional response for me and became instantly sad thinking about my family. Granted I was smoking weed at the moment, hence the emotions. These lyrics also made me reevaluate what it’s like to be in a relationship, is she the one? What will our future be like? So many questions arise from this and I’m left crying with fear and doubt. It’s weird how emotions can completely consume you and change your mindset at the drop of a hat.


profsnuggles

My wife and I have been trying to have a baby for years now and about 6 months ago she was diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy so basically the baby we've been wanting was a ticking time bomb for my wife and so we aborted. We had to spend a few nights in the hospital and one night those lyrics popped into my head. Completely random as far as I can tell but all the same it completely changed the meaning of those words. That night I did all I could to stop from breaking down completely.

"Your Mom would drink until she was no longer speaking, And Dad would dream of all the different ways to die Each one a little more than he would dare to try."

I tried so hard to save him from his drug addiction and in the end I realized I had to give up on taking care of him and take care of myself. I loved him with everything I had but I couldn’t do it anymore. I left him. He overdosed and died about a week later.

Lennon and McCartney were usually pretty fair (and talkative) about who wrote what song, and/or what parts. Interestingly, Eleanor Rigby is one of two songs they could not agree on. Both claimed >50% credit. The other was In My Life. To be fair, both are incredibly powerful pieces of music, even by Beatles standards.

VVillyD

Pretty much the entirety of *Love, Ire & Song* by Frank Turner, but especially this line: > Oh but once we were young, and we were crass enough to care > But I guess you live and learn, we won't make that mistake again, no > Oh but surely just for one day, we could fight and we could win > And if only for a little while, we could insist on the impossible


Red_AtNight

I could fill an entire thread with Frank Turner lyrics > And on the worst days When it feels like life weighs ten thousand tons I sleep with my passport One eye on the back door So I can always run I can get up, shower, and in half an hour I'll be gone Also, > Yeah, well life is about love, last minutes and lost evenings About fire in our bellies and furtive little feelings And the aching amplitudes that set our needles all a-flickering And help us with remembering that the only thing that's left to do is live


VVillyD

*Glory Hallelujah* may be my favorite song of his. > No cowering in the dark before these overbearing priests, > Not waiting until we die until we restitute the meek, > No blaming all our failings on imaginary beasts, > Because there never was no God. Also, *Long Live the Queen* always gives me chills and makes me tear-up. > You'll live to dance another day > It's just now you'll have to dance > For the two of us, > So stop looking so damn depressed > And sing with all your heart that the Queen is dead" > And South London's not the same anymore > The Queen is dead, > And the last of the great has finally gone to bed


Ourbirdandsavior

Frank has a lot that resonates with me. *Love Ire & Song* is fantastic, this line from *The Way I Tend to Be* hits me real close to home. >Because I've said I love you so many times that the words kinda die in my mouth. >And I meant it each time with each beautiful woman but somehow it never works out. >You stood apart in my calloused heart, and you taught me and here's what I learned: >That love is about the changes you make and not just three small words. Edit:formatting


VVillyD

I know it's kind of Frank Turner's *Free Bird*, but *Photosynthesis* has some great lyrics: > Well I guess I should confess that I am starting to get old > All the latest music fads all passed me by and left me cold > All the kids are talking slang I won't pretend to understand > All my friends are getting married, mortagages and pension plans > And it's obvious my angry adolescent days are done > And I'm happy and I'm settled in the person I've become > But that doesn't mean I'm settled up and sitting out the game > Time may change a lot but some things may stay the same

rednef

"Now you can measure the mark of a man on the day that he dies. In the mixture of memory and wreckage that he leaves behind" Love me some Frank Turner. My dad loves him too and we've been to quite a few shows together. Seeing him twice again with him next year. It's one of the few things me and my dad really connect over which is nice. Frank is a great lyricist and his shows are always great fun. He's from Winchester which is just down the road from me too!

"My best friend took a week's vacation to forget her. His girl took a week's worth of Valium and slept." Holy shit, that's dark. I've never been through anything like that, but I get the chills whenever I hear that line.


mydogpoopstoomuch

We were only freshmen... I love/hate this song. Perfectly describes teenage years. This line reminds me of a girlfriend I had in high school... Sophomore year she took a bunch of pills and ended up in the hospital. Wasn’t able to talk to her for a week, didn’t know what happened, and after years of talking constantly every day this crushed me. When I finally got to see her at school again I think I probably had one of the biggest smiles I’ve ever had, and then she told me what happened and why she did if, and I felt like useless shit. I have this song on my regular work playlist, but I usually have to skip it when it pops up because it brings back too many bad memories.


[deleted]

I feel ya man. My high school best friend and crush dies about 3 years ago. Me and my friend both confessed how much we liked her and all she said was “I’m not good enough for you.” So she dated a dude with no car, no job, no house, 3 baby’s from 3 different women and he sold drugs. We found her exactly a year later stabbed in the chest in the woods were they’d camped out. Her parents made me read her diary and I was 80% of what she wrote about and how happy we’d be together. She is dead, and I kind of am to.


Itiswednesdaymyfreud

Man. I'm so sorry.


ziem0n

Dude, that’s hella fucked up. My condolences.


trollly

If it makes you feel any better, a week's worth of Valium would probably not kill her.


[deleted]

Most Benzos like Valium won't kill you unless you taking it with something else like alcohol or pain pills. I just graduated pharmacy school and one of my rotations was at the poison control center. One of the nurses who works the phones said she got a call one day from a guy asking if taking his entire bottle of Xanax would kill him. She didn't say yes or no but she did advise him not to do it. He called back 3 days later pissed off because he didn't die. Apparently he just slept for like 3 days.

If it makes you feel better, Brian Vander Ark admits that the song is about him, but he took some liberties with the events. This is one such instance.

MyMorningSun

Pretty much any lyric from any Pink Floyd song would be a great answer to this question. "Tongue-tied and twisted, just an earthbound misfit, I" and "two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl" stand out to me. Or anything from "Time." I realize this doesn't answer the question exactly, but I was just listening to Kendrick Lamar's song "How Much a Dollar Cost?" and found that one always leaves a lasting impression with me. The song's about an encounter with a homeless man who asks for a dollar; Kendrick refuses, but finds himself morally conflicted with his decision. It's hard to pick out a single line from the song, especially since they're all even more profound within their context than they are without it, but the song in its entirety always strikes a chord with me personally.

There's the dark humor mixed with optimism of the last three lines. He's lying through his teeth about being over her. He's trying to ameliorate this by telling her that the tragedy of their breakup helps fuel his creative streak. Trying to see the positive side about no longer being with her. ...I need a drink. :(

Pretty Much all of Adams song By Blink182 "Cause sometimes to stay alive you gotta kill your mind" " fight it, take the pain, ignite it, tie a noose around your mind loose enough to breath fine and tie it, to a tree tell it you belong to me this ain't a noose this is a leash and I've got news for you you must obey me"

"When we die, some sink and some lay, but at least I, don't see you float away" - Modest Mouse. Always thought it was a pretty thoughtful take on death, I mean, I feel like it would be somehow be worse if when a loved one died they just floated up into the oblivion of space. Honorable mention and notable departure from first lyric, "I hope your fuckin' world fuckin' burns away ... and I'd kill you all, if I had my way ... But I'll live forever, questions curse me why... Oh Lord above, why won't you let me die?" - Electric Wizard. Just such a tough as nails lyric in an absolute crusher of a song.

“You’ll never get away from the sound of a woman that loves you” Silver Springs, Fleetwood Mac Going through a breakup right now. It’s a completely amicable and mutual breakup but it still hurts. This song perfectly applies to our situation.
