    What are some of your favorite song lyrics?
    Seems like we are a diverse crowd here at Mac-Forums, and I though it would be sorta neat if we shared some of our favorite song lyrics. The kind of music you listen to says quite a bit about you and this might help us "get to know" each other a little better. Here are the lyrics to one of my favorite songs by the Old 97s, "Big Brown Eyes"
    Big brown eyes, and a gust of wind,
    And the cherry burns the corner of the page that says ";The end
    Is coming soon,"; but not soon enough.
    Restring all your guitars. Pack up all your stuff.

    'Cause if Robert's dad is right,
    We might not make it through the night,
    And I'd hate to go alone.
    Please pick up the phone.

    Well a box of red, and a pill or three,
    And I'm calling time and temperature just for some company.
    I wish you were here. I wish I was too.
    I'll drink myself to sleeplessness, I always do.

    You don't want me anymore,
    Since fame and fortune broke down our door.
    You don't give me no respect.
    What did I expect?

    If that phone don't ring one more time,
    I'm gonna lose what's left of my mind.
    You made a big impression for a girl of your size,
    Now I can't get by without you and your big brown eyes.

    Her hands are cold, her breath is warm,
    She's a port in a storm.
    I'm worried now, but it won't be long.
    It takes a worried man, you know, to sing a worried song.

    I've got issues, yeah.
    Like I miss you, yeah.
    And I wish I weren't so thick.
    I'm making myself sick.

    If that phone don't ring one more time,
    I'm gonna lose what's left of my mind.
    You made a big impression for a girl of your size,
    Now I can't get by without you and your big brown eyes.

    Firstly D3v1L80Y i like the demo's you did in garageband (the ones on your site) nice

    Here are a couple of my fav songs from one of my fav bands Anti-Flag ,
    "You Can Kill The Protestor, But You Can't Kill The Protest"
    You can spoon my eyes out,
    but I can still see through you
    Slice my ears from my head,
    but you can not shut out the sounds of truth
    Lock off each hand at the wrist
    so I can't raise my fist!

    you can kill the protestor (can't kill)
    you can't kill the protest
    you can murder the rebel (murder)
    you can't murder the rebellion

    Sawed my feet at the ankles, but i wasnt going to run
    Grabbed my face, sliced off my tongue
    Lock off each hand at the wrist,
    so I can't raise my fist!

    you can kill the protestor (can't kill)
    you can't kill the protest
    you can murder the rebel (murder)
    you can't murder the rebellion

    LYING STILL NOW, NO WAY TO SPEAK. NOTHING TO FEAR, BULLETS CAN'T SILENCE IDEAS!
    "Wake Up!"
    If I had a lighter in hands
    With some oily rags
    Is that what it'd take
    To wake you from your sleep?
    Woke up from your American dreams
    To be surrounded
    Surrounded in flames!

    You got to SCREAM
    TO MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!
    AND I WON'T STOP SCREAMING
    UNTIL MINE IS HEARD!
    Wake Up!
    Wake Up!
    To the world around you
    Wake Up!
    Wake Up!
    To the world around you
    Wake Up!
    Wake Up!
    To the world around you
    Wake Up!
    Wake Up!

    YEAH!

    And if we blocked the streets
    Everyday
    Face down on the pavement
    As we lay
    You're angered
    That you're five minutes late.
    What happens next time
    When we will stop you all day?
    Yeah, next time
    When we will stop you all day?

    You got to SCREAM
    TO MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!
    AND I WON'T STOP SCREAMING
    UNTIL MINE IS HEARD!
    Wake Up!
    Wake Up!
    To the world around you
    Wake Up!
    Wake Up!
    To the world around you
    Wake Up!
    Wake Up!
    To the world around you
    Wake Up!
    Wake Up!
    To the world around you

    and it's the same song, sung
    Sung at the top of our lungs
    SCREAMING FOR FREEDOM
    PLEADING FOR LIBERTY
    SCREAMING FOR FREEDOM
    PLEADING FOR LIBERTY
    SCREAMING FOR FREEDOM
    PLEADING FOR LIBERTY
    FREEDOM!
    Sorry if it's super long .

    The Vaselines
    No Hope

    I've lived my life on the edge of a knife,
    And I can't give it up.

    In the fast lane of misery and pain,
    And I can't give it up.

    I've had a good time on the weeds and the wine,
    And I can't give it up.

    I've been up and down, below and above ground,
    And I can't give it up,
    And I can't give it up.

    Better under the table than under the ground,
    And I can't give it up.

    I like what I take, but my life's a mistake,
    And I can't give it up.

    It all went wrong the day I was born,
    And I can't give it up.

    I've tried to invest, but my life was a mess,
    And I can't give it up,
    And I can't give it up.

    It's hard to refuse, when there is nothing to lose,
    And I can't give it up.

    I need to drink more, cause my life's such a bore,
    And I can't give it up.

    I've had my fill and I made out my will,
    And I can't give it up.

    I drink all I can cause it makes me a man,
    And I can't give it up,
    And I can't give it up

    The Presence of the Lord is Here by Byron Cage
    Lead: The Presence of the Lord is here, the presence of the lord is here,
    I feel it in the atmosphere, the presence of the lord is here, the presence of the lord is here

    Choir: The presence of the Lord is here, the presence of the lord is here,
    I feel it in the atmosphere, the presence of the lord is here,
    The presence of the lord is here. (spirit, power) key change on each verse.

    Chorus: Everybody blows the trumpet and sound the alarm
    Because the Lord is in the temple let everybody bow
    Let all the people praise Him now
    The Lord is here

    A blessing from the Lord is here, a blessing from the Lord is here
    I feel it in the atmosphere, a blessing from the lord is here
    A blessing from the lord is here

    Chorus: Watch special part: The lord is here
    Vamp: I can feel the presence of the Lord, and Im going to get my blessing right now.
    REPEAT and Watch
    The Presence of the Lord is HERE!!!
    Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!

    Carosels by mewithoutYou
    On a bus ride into town, I wondered out loud, "Why am I going to town?"
    As I looked around at the billboards and the stores I thought, "Why do I look around?"
    And I kissed the filthy ground...the first dry spot I found...
    I didn't have to wonder why I was laying down.

    Before long I was too cold...took a bus back to the station,
    I found a letter left by a pay phone with no return contact
    And it read like a horn blown by some sad angel,
    "Bunny, it was me...it was me who let you down"
    It was the shyest attempt I'd ever seen at conversation.

    But if I didn't have You as my guide, I'd still wander lost in Sinai,
    Counting the plates of cars from out-of-state,
    How I could jump in their path as they hurry along!
    And You surround me, You're pretty but You're all I can see
    Like a thick fog...
    If there was no way into God,
    I would never have laid in this grave of a body for so long.

    And St. Cyril's fair always came through the first week of September
    But it's already the 19th...and there's no sign of it...
    Yet I have a hard time remembering all the things I should remember
    And a hard time forgetting all the things that I was supposed to forget.
    And, Christ, when You're ready to come back,
    Then I think I'm ready for You to come back;
    But if You want to stay wherever exactly it is You are,
    That's okay, too...it's, it's really none of my business.

    And if I didn't have You as my guide, I'd still wander lost in Sinai
    Or down by the tracks watching trains go by
    To remind me: there are places that aren't here.
    And I had a well but all the water left,
    So I'll go ask Your forgiveness with every breath,
    And if there was no way into God,
    I would never have laid in this grave of a body...so long, dear.

    i dont have no mac's
    omg...where do we start.

    lets go with the donnie darko soundtrack song by gary jules "mad world"
    All around me are familiar faces
    Worn out places
    Worn out faces
    Bright and early for the daily races
    Going no where
    Going no where
    Their tears are filling up their glasses
    No expression
    No expression
    Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow
    No tomorrow
    No tomorrow
    And I find I kind of funny
    I find it kind of sad
    The dreams in which Im dying are the best Ive ever had
    I find it hard to tell you
    I find it hard to take
    When people run in circles its a very very
    Mad world
    Mad world
    Children waiting for the day they feel good
    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday
    And I feel the way that every child should
    Sit and listen
    Sit and listen
    Went to school and I was very nervous
    No one knew me
    No one new me
    Hello teacher tell me whats my lesson
    Look right through me
    Look right through me
    And I find I kind of funny
    I find it kind of sad
    The dreams in which Im dying are the best Ive ever had
    I find it hard to tell you
    I find it hard to take
    When people run in circles its a very very
    Mad world
    Mad world
    Enlarging your world
    Mad world
    -chris
    MoTM honor roll...
    when?

    Here's another..."Little Conversations" by Concrete Blonde
    The Little Conversation, is over very soon
    And I watch in admiration, from my corner of the room.
    They shine on you with starry eyes...They rain a friendly storm.
    They're like kids around a Christmas tree, and then you smile all nice and warm
    These Little Conversations...
    If I tried my very best, you know I never could say anything, in twenty words or less.
    Somewhere, sometime, down the line someday I may confess, and tell you all. That's all
    The Little Conversations, on me are very rough
    They leave me all in pieces, you know there's never time enough
    Its like a book with missing pages, a story incomplete
    Its like a painting left unfinished, it feels like not enough to eat.
    Starvin'
    You know these little conversations, well for me they'll never do
    Now what am I supposed to do with broken sentences of you?
    I'll stay in my corner `cause that's all that I can do
    and let the others speak for me.
    Little Conversations are We.

    Lulu Santos - "Como Uma Onda"

    Como Uma Onda
    (Lulu Santos - Nelson Motta)

    Nada do que foi sera
    de novo do jeito que ja foi um dia
    tudo passa
    tudo sempre passara
    a vida vem em ondas como uma mar
    no indo e vindo, infinito
    tudo que se ve nao e igual
    ao que a gente viu ha um Segundo
    tudo muda o tempo todo
    no mundo
    nao adianta fugir
    nem mentir pra si mesmo agora
    ha tanta vida la for a
    aqui dentro
    sempre
    como uma onda no mar...


    Nothing that once was, will be
    the same way that it once had been
    everything passes
    everything will always pass
    life comes in waves like an ocean
    in an infinite coming and going
    everything that we see is not the same
    as we lived in a second
    everything changes all the time
    around the world
    there is no use to run away
    nor lie to yourself now
    there is much life out there
    and in here
    always
    like waves in the ocean

    My favorite song of all time is "Rain" by The Beatles (surprise, surprise). :flower:

    If the rain comes they run and hide their heads.
    They might as well be dead,
    If the rain comes, if the rain comes.
    When the sun shines they slip into the shade,
    And sip their lemonade,
    When the sun shines, when the sun shines.
    Rain, I don't mind,
    Shine, the weather's fine.
    I can show you that when it starts to rain,
    Everything's the same,
    I can show you, I can show you.
    Rain, I don't mind,
    Shine, the weather's fine.
    Can you hear me that when it rains and shines,
    It's just a state of mind,
    Can you hear me, can you hear me?

    A seasoned veteran in his own time.
    On the battlefield he gained respectful fame
    With many medals of bravery and stripes to his name
    He grew a beard as soon as he could
    To cover the scars on his face
    And always urged his men on

    But on the eve of great battle with the infantry in dream
    The old general tossed in his sleep
    And wrestled with its meaning
    He awoke from the night to tell what he had seen
    And walked slowly out of his tent.

    All the men held tall with their chests in the air
    With a courage in their blood
    And a fire in their stare
    It was a grey morning and they all wondered how they would fare
    'Til the old general told them to go home.

    He said,
    "I have seen the others
    And I have discovered
    that this fight is not worth fighting
    And I've seen their mothers
    And I will no other
    to follow me where I'm going.
    So take a shower and shine your shoes
    You've got no time to lose
    You are young men you must be living.
    Take a shower and shine your shoes
    You've got no time to lose
    You are young men you must be living.
    Go now you are forgiven."

    Yeah...

    But the men stood fast with their guns on their shoulders
    Not knowing what to do with the contradicting orders
    The General said he would do his own duty
    But he would extend it no further
    The men could go as they pleased
    But not a man moved
    their eyes gazed straight ahead
    'Til one by one they stepped back and not a word was said
    The old General was left with his own words
    Echoing in his head
    He then prepared to fight

    He said,
    "I have seen the others
    And I have discovered
    that this fight is not worth fighting
    No, and I've seen their mothers
    And I will no other to follow me where I'm going
    So take a shower and shine your shoes
    You've got no time to lose
    You are young men you must be living.
    Take a shower and shine your shoes
    You've got no time to lose
    You are young men you must be living.
    Go now you are forgiven."

    Yeah...

    Go now you are forgiven
    Go now you are forgiven
    Go now you are forgiven
    Go

    Go now you are forgiven
    Go now you are forgiven
    Go now you are forgiven
    Go oh

    Go now you are forgiven
    Go now you are forgiven
    Go now you got to be got to be got to be got to be got to be yeah
    Definitely one of my favorite songs...really was sad to see the band call it quits this summer...at least I was at the final show
