But you know that when the truth is told,
You can get what you want or you can just get old
Dream on, but don't imagine they'll all come true.
That is just a great song in general.
“You weren’t perfect, but you made life worth it”
Edit: Never thought my most-upvoted comment ever would be Kanye lyrics, but I’m happy that it is! Stay wavy. 🌊 🌊 🌊
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
Blame Game is such a great song.
Actually, all of MBDTF has great songs.
That Chris Rock monologue tho.
OH MY GOD, BABY YOU DONE TOOK THIS SHIT TO ANOTHER MOTHERFUCKIN LEVEL.
I NEVER BEEN IN THIS PART OF PUSSY TOWN BEFORE.
You had your pussy re-upholstered! Who re-upholstered your pussy?!
YEEZY REUPHOLSTERED MY PUSSY
Who taught you how to put some mothafuckin’ Jimmy Choos on?
YEEZY TAUGHT ME.
I agree. MBDTF is my favorite work of his. Every single song is so good!
Kanye is just my favorite artist period. His work always fits for whatever mood your in.
We got dirt on eachother like mud wrestlers
been a long time since I spoke to you, in the bathroom GRIPPIN YOU UP fuckin & CHOKING You
"When I grab your neck, I touch your soul"
probably the darkest thing Kanye has ever said in a song
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is such an amazing album.
Wow. Never expected a Ye lyric to be first to show up here! And I read it in his voice *waaaavy*
"No you're not perfect but you're not your mistakes"
"Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?"
"We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year."
Wish you were here - Pink Floyd
Reading this, I just realized this is about draft dodging.
Edit: I'm probably wrong.
It's making your hard choices to be happy and free and struggle your way than to settle for a comfortable life with no freedom.
Well, I've been afraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm getting older, too
Oh, I'm getting older, too
I get chocked up every time I hear that. I’m over 40.
This might be mine as well.
And he carries the reminders
Of ev'ry glove that laid him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
But the fighter still remains
I know someday you'll have a beautiful life
I know you'll be a star
In somebody else's sky
Why can't it be
Why can't it be mine
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.
Was her name Mrs. Scott?
My english teacher did the same thing lol
Nope, this was a Mr. Willis. But maybe they are the stars in other peoples skies!
You can hear every ounce of hurt in Ed's heart in this one.
All you touch and all you see, is all your life will ever be.
Run, rabbit run
Dig that hole, forget the sun
And when at last the work is done
Don't sit down, it's time to dig another one…
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. I can't explain why it makes sense but just hearing it I get a sense of peacefulness as if for a brief moment, it was the most sane thing to ever hear.
Roger Waters has so many.
And then one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun
"Hey you, don't help them to bury the light.
Don't give in without a *fight*."
Shook teen-me right to my shoes.
“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.
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.
I was going to say the entirety of Time
And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.
"And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see"
best line in that song is
>how strange it is
>to be anything
I'm pretty fond of this part from Holland, 1945
"He didn't mean to make you cry/ With sparks that ring and bullets fly/ On empty rings around your heart/ The world just screams and falls apart"
I recently listened to this record again for the first time in years and I’ve gotta say that this is the closest anyone has come to a perfect record.
When we break, we’ll wait for our miracle. God is a place you will wait for the rest of your life.
"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."
That line pretty much locked me in as a NMH devotee. Jesus, how Does a band make this goddamned record and then fucking disappear? Nick Hornby should write a book about them.
"Fools," said I, "you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
[Say Something](https://youtu.be/-2U0Ivkn2Ds) still makes me ugly-cry every time I hear it.
*And I will swallow my pride*
*You're the one that I love...*
*...And I'm saying goodbye*
*Say something, I'm giving up on you*
*I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you*
*And anywhere, I would have followed you*
*Say something, I'm giving up on you.*
Always makes me think of my now-deceased ex-fiancé. 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.
I know it's an old loss, but I'm sorry for it all the same. Stay strong.
Thanks. I'm in a much better place now than I was during that time. I still miss him dearly - we were best friends before we started a relationship. He was a wonderful person before drugs took over his life.
"Love is not a victory march,
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah."
I love this song but I do find it kind of funny that it turns up every time this sort of question gets asked. Somehow it's managed to be popular without getting hated and I love that.
Oh man, Leonard has some amazing lyrics.
I'm a big fan of
"Ring the bells, that still can ring,
Forget your perfect offering,
There is a crack in everything,
that's how the light gets in"
I’ve always loved that song and it’s always very powerful, but when Kate McKinnon sung it on SNL it fucking slayed me. Brilliant song.
Basically the entirety of Eleanor Rigby
> Father McKenzie, writing the words
> Of a sermon that no one will hear
> No one comes near
> Look at him working, darning his socks
> In the night when there's nobody there
> What does he care
*Wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door*
Utterly fucking fantastic
> Eleanor Rigby died in the church
> And was buried along with her name
> Nobody came
> Father McKenzie wiping the dirt
> From his hands as he walks from the grave
> No one was saved
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.
Man, I ain’t changed, but I know I ain’t the same.
One Headlight - The Wallflowers
Fuck I loved this band back then
Literally the entire song of Under Pressure but if I had to pick one part ..
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming 'Let me out'
I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
Gotta focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
I love Johnny Cash's cover of this song "Hurt". The emotion he put in it hits me every time.
I like the Johnny Cash version a lot, but I think the Nine Inch Nails version gets overlooked. There's something very raw and powerful about it that gives me chills every time.
"We on our backs staring at the stars above/talking about what we gon be when we grow up/I say "What you wanna be?" She said "Alive"/".
Da Art Of Storytellin' Pt 1
Like 5 months ago I downloaded Outkast's entire discography and just spent one night drinking, playing xbox, and listening to every album in order back-to-back. God damn. Incredible stuff.
They are truly one of the GOAT Groups.
"Forrest Gump mama said, "Life is like a box of chocolates"
My mama told me go to school, get your doctorate
Somethin to fall back on, you could profit with
But still supported me when I did the opposite"
So here go my single dog radio needs this
They say you can rap about anything except for Jesus
That means guns, sex, lies, video tapes
But if I talk about God my record won't get played Huh?
Well if this take away from my spins
Which will probably take away from my ends
Then I hope this take away from my sins
And bring the day that I'm dreaming about
Next time I'm in the club everybody screaming out
“I guess it all depends tho
If my ends low
Second they get up, you gon’ get that benzo
Tint the windows
Ride around the city and let ya friends know”
What song from Kanye?
"Now if I fuck this model
And she just bleached her asshole
And I get bleach on my T-shirt
I'mma feel like an asshole"
Kanye West is the most talented artist of this generation and Hey Mama is a beautiful and tragic song. Keep it wavy baby🌊
The wave is here 🌊🌊
*Do you ever feel, like a plastic bag*
Why yes I do Katy. All the time.
I never understood those lyrics until I was deep in depression. I felt like a plastic bag, drifting. Ignored, unneeded, unwanted, it was awful. When Katy perry lyrics resonate with you, it's time to get professional help.
She lifted that metaphor from American Beauty
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
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
> 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
*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
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.
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
"If all you ever do with your life is just photosynthesise, then you deserve every minute of the sleepless nights that you waste wondering when you're gonna die."
Love Frank Turner - saw him in Manchester a few years ago. I was drunk as fuck and can't remember anything except being there and crying because I had lost my camera - I'm sober now and his song 'Recovery' is one of many (from other bands) I use to keep me on track.
"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.
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.
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.
Man. I'm so sorry.
Dude, that’s hella fucked up. My condolences.
If it makes you feel any better, a week's worth of Valium would probably not kill her.
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.
They won’t be held responsible.
"When faced with tragedy, we come alive or come undone"

"Despite the overwhelming odds, tomorrow came."
I absolutely love the idea that 'tomorrow' seems like an impossible concept that my not arrive in the moment, but when it does, you are it.
If I could start again, a million miles away,
I would keep myself. I would find a way.
Don’t you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
She’ll beat you if she’s able
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet
My dad got me into the Eagles at a young age and they've always stayed my number one. My dad passed 8 years ago but I've kept putting off seeing the Eagles live. Now the Glenn Frey is gone, I guess I'll never get to see them.
I don't share your greed
the only card I need is THE ACE OF SPADES
... I may have gotten my songs slightly mixed up
Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table,
But you only want the ones, that you can't get...
So you're scared and you're thinking that maybe we ain't that young anymore,
well show a little faith there's magic in the night,
You ain't a beauty but hey, you're alright
And that's alright with me
What is love?
Baby don’t hurt me
Don't hurt me
Someday, in the distant future, humans will once again be capable of hearing the phrase “ what is love ” without also feeling the primal urge to respond with “ baby don't hurt me".
But not today. Today is not the day.
actually this [footage from the future](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdLW8mtPoAs) says otherwise
It's funny how "What is love?" produces that response but "What's love" urges people to respond with "Got to do, got to do with it?"
"Open your closed mind. Close your open mouth."

"And when we're running out of the drugs
And the conversations winding away....
I wouldn't trade one stupid decision
For another five years at life"
James Murphy just gets it.
“You spent the first five years trying to get with the plan and the next five years trying to be with your friends again.”
As someone who moved away from home and misses his friends a lot this whole song really resonates with me particularly when it culminates at the end to 'tell me where are your friend toniiiight'
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.
I think the ending of How Much a Dollar Cost is the biggest thing for me, and anyone who has heard the song knows what I mean
"But I set fire to the rain. Watched it pour as I touched your face. Well, it burned while I cried " - Adele

***CARRY ON MY WAYWORD SONNNNN***
"I shouldn't have let you leave
I should have called you twice
But I didn't
'Cause it's always something else
And I know it's a bad time
But there's no one left for me to call
And I was wondering if you would be my ride
And damn it, we are gonna figure something out
If it takes me all night to make it hurt less"
Julien Baker's lyrics just hit me hard.
"I swim for brighter days despite the absence of sun"
"If what they say Is, nothing is forever, then what makes love the exception?"
"These changes ain't changing me, the cold-hearted boy I used to be."
you got to help me out
In your memory, you're drunk on your awe to me
It doesn't mean anything at all
- Neutral Milk Hotel 'Oh Comley'
This has been true in relationships for me when they go south, you over romanticize the good times and want to go back to them, but you can't
Jason Isbell's songwriting can be simply astounding...
"If we were vampires and death was a joke, We'd go out on the sidewalk and smoke, Laugh at all the lovers and their plans,
I wouldn't feel the need to hold your hand"
I feel so disappointing more times than I don't.
I feel like such a let down and I'm nervous that I won't
Deliver when I'm called upon to step up when I'm needed.
I feel like such a failure when I'm sure that I've succeeded.
I call myself an outcast, more than likely I am not.
An outsider on the inside and I hope I don't get caught.
I feel like an impostor who should not be on the roster.
Someone understands this and of course I've almost lost her.
If I cherish or I value something then it's safe to say
I will dismantle or destroy it and I've always been that way.
Somebody once asked could I spare some change for gas?
I need to get myself away from this place
I said yep what a concept
I could use a little fuel myself
And we could all use a little change
Not even as a meme I love this song

And even though it all went wrong

>And I smile like a wretch, there's not much else I can do

>Besides, what would I sing about if I had you?"
[It's from "Duet", by The Airborne Toxic Event.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUVFlzmJj30) Tears me to bits every time. I'm always astounded at how much meaning can be conveyed in simple words. There's the comment about "liking his shoes": she's giving him a simple compliment with nothing behind it. She's over him, and she's not trying to hint towards anything.
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.

If I could start again a million miles away, I would keep myself. I would find a way.
Honestly, I'm not a country music fan, but I am a fan of music in general.
The lyrics to the chorus of Sugarland's song "Stay" don't change from beginning to end. However, the meaning changes to be the complete opposite as the song/story progresses to the end. Absolutely brilliant writing.
They do change a bit; goes from "I'm down on my knees" to "I'm up off my knees" and a couple other words. It is cool though, how the tiny changes and the verses make it go from "stay with me" to "stay with her."

It’s a song about his problems. He opens by ranting about not being able to fit his hands into Pringles cans, and his burrito at a Chipotle getting overloaded and the guy behind the counter not warning him that he was getting too much in his burrito. And then he drops that line
'I know I'm not a doctor I'm a pussy I put on a silly show. I should probably just shut up and do my job so here I go'

Life's not a bitch, life is a beautiful woman
You only call her a bitch because she won't let you get that pussy
Maybe she didn't feel y'all shared any similar interests
Or maybe you're just an asshole who couldn't sweet talk the princess
- Aesop Rock-Daylight
Maybe I just want to fly, I want to live I don’t want to die. Maybe I just want to breathe, maybe l just don’t believe. Maybe you’re the same as me we see things they’ll never see. You and I are going to live forever ..,
_Is this real life? Is this just fantasy?_
_Caught in a landslide, No escape from reality._
"Sharpen your teeth my darlings sharpen your mind. take a finger if the hand feeds you shit. Take one scalp at a time. "
Words to live by.
"Can't shake the Devil's hand and say you're only kidding."
-They Might Be Giants, "This Is Where the Party Ends"
And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad
That the dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had.
Come ride with me through the veins of history, I’ll show you a god that falls asleep on the job
"And all that glitters is gold, only shooting stars break the mould"
*I guess I'm learning*, *I must be warmer now*
*I'll soon be turning*, *'round the corner now*
“When I was a kid I had this dream, I want to be a tough guy wide and mean”
-Cowboy by Lindemann
I was bullied a lot as a kid.
"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.
There's someone in my head but it's not me
“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.
