I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And my scars remind me that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

Drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
I'm pissed cause you came around
Why don't you just go home
Cause you channel all your pain
And I can't help you fix yourself
You're making me insane
All I can say is

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I tried to help you once
Against my own advice
I saw you going down
But you never realized
That you're drowning in the water
So I offered you my hand
Compassion is in my nature
Tonight is our last stand
~Papa Roach

It's a hindrance to my health
If I'm a stranger to myself

Elton John - Empty Garden
(I have always liked this song...and I just read recently that this was written about John Lennon....it just makes it all the sweeter...)

What happened here,
As the New York sunset disappeared?
I found an empty garden among the flagstones there.
Who
lived here?
He must have been a gardener that cared a
lot,
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop.
And now it all looks strange.
It's funny how one
insect can damage so much grain.

And what's it
for,
This little empty garden by the brownstone door?
And in the cracks along the sidewalk nothing grows no more.
Who lived here?
He must have been a gardener that cared a
lot,
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop.
And we are so amazed! We're crippled and we're
dazed....
A gardener like that one, no one can replace.

And I've been knocking, but no one answers.
And I've been knocking, most all the day.
Oh and
I've been calling ,oh hey, hey, Johnny!
Can't you
come out to play?

And through their tears,
Some
say he farmed his best in younger years.
But he'd have
said that roots grow stronger, if only he couldhear.
Who
lived there?
He must have been a gardener that cared a
lot,
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop.
Now we pray for rain, and with every drop that falls.....
We hear, we hear your name.....

And I've been
knocking, but no one answers.
And I've been knocking,
most all the day.
Oh and I've been calling ,oh hey,
hey, Johnny!
Can't you come out to play,
In your
empty garden?
Johnny?
Can't you come out to play,
in your empty garden?

When I was a young boy,
My father took me into the city
To see a marching band.
He said,
"Son when you grow up, will you be the saviour of the broken,
The beaten and the damned?"

Sometimes I get the feeling she's watching over me.
And other times I feel like I should go. Through it all, the rise and fall, the bodies in the streets.
When you're gone we want you all to know We'll Carry on,
We'll Carry on
Though your dead and gone believe me Your memory will carry on
Carry on
We'll carry on
And in my heart I cant contain it
The anthem wont explain it.

And we will send you reeling from decimated dreams
Your misery and hate will kill us all
So paint it black and take it back
Lets shout it loud and clear
Do you fight it to the end
We hear the call to
To carry on
We'll carry on
Though your dead and gone believe me Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated You're weary widow marches on

~My Chemical Romance "Welcome to the Black Parade"

I got God on my side
And I'm just trying to survive
What if what you do to survive
Kills the things you love
Fear's a powerful thing
It can turn your heart black you can trust
It'll take your God filled soul
And fill it with devils and dust

Bruce Springsteen, Devils & Dust

One day : it will happen
One day : it will all come true
One day : when you're ready
One day : when you're up to it

The atmosphere will get lighter
and two suns ready to shine just for YOU
I can feel it!

One day : it will happen
One day : it will all make sense
One day : you will blossom
One day : when you're ready

An aeroplane will curve gracefully
around the volcano with the eruption
that never lets you down
I can feel it!

And the beautifullest fireworks
are burning in the sky just for you
I can feel it!

One day : One day

Hey Purdy - here's soppy for ya!!!

Here comes the weekend, honey.
What's going on?
Do we put our feet up, honey,
Or call it all night long?
Oh, baby, whatever... I'm With You

Are we staying home, are we going downtown?
Are we dressing up baby, or dressing down?
Oh, whatever... Baby, I'm With you

CHORUS:
You're my sunshine in the morning,
You're my stars at night.
You're all I ever dream about.
Anything you want,
Well, baby, that's alright.
Anything you don't,
I can learn to live without as long as...

I'm with you, till the Sun stops burning.
I'm with you, till the world stops turning.
Till the end of time, Oh, I'm with you.

Chorus

I'm with you, till the Sun stops burning.
I'm with you, till the world stops turning.
Till the end of time, baby, I'm with you.
Till the end of time, Oh, baby, I'm with you.

I'm With You - Delbert McClinton

Where were you when I was burned and broken
While the days slipped by from my window watching
Where were you when I was hurt and I was helpless
Because the things you say and the things you do surround me
While you were hanging yourself on someone elses words
Dying to believe in what you heard
I was staring straight into the shining sun

Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of live and the seeds of change were planted

Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but
I took a heavenly ride through one silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life

I took a heavenly ride trough our silence
I knew the waiting had begin
And headed straight... into the shining sun

coming back to life - Pink Floyd

Carefree highway, got ta see you my old flame
Carefree highway, you seen better days
The mornin' after blues from my head down to my shoes
Carefree highway, let me slip away
Slip away on you

- Carefree Highway, Gordon Lightfoot

Oh, I should have been a cowboy,
should have learned to rope and ride,
wearin my six shooter ridin my pony on a cattle drive,
oh i should have been a cowbowy.
