I've always been amazed that no matter your mood, situation or circumstance you can always find a lyric to sum it up. I wanna share a few of my favourite lyrics with you and tell you how they have helped me through or what they have meant to me at any particular time. Also I will be sharing some lyrics I just plain love. I personally use music as a way of letting my emotions out, like writing stories or poems. It helps me to come to terms with emotions and feels that are hard to feel or that I dont really want to believe, and sometimes its just a piece of music I hear that exactly matchs my mood.

These probably wont be in any kind of order so my appologies for that. :-)

When I was 11 my parents broke up, now I'm nearly 22 I can honestly say its not a bad thing, but when your 11 it feels like your entire world is falling to pieces, at the time I wasnt as interested in music as I am now, at least no contempory music, and it wasnt until a few years later when I was with my cousin I came across the following song.

"Savage Garden - Two Beds and a Coffee Machine"

"And she takes another step
Slowly she opens the door
Check that he is sleeping
Pick up all the broken glass and furniture on the floor
Been up half the night screaming now it's time to get away
Pack up the kids in the car
Another bruise to try and hide
Another alibi to write

Another ditch in the road
You keep moving
Another stop sign
You keep moving on
And the years go by so fast
Wonder how I ever made it through

And there are children to think of
Baby's asleep in the backseat
Wonder how they'll ever make it through this living nightmare
But the mind is an amazing thing
Full of candy dreams and new toys and another cheap hotel
Two beds and a coffee machine
But there are groceries to buy
And she knows she'll have to go home"

Now if I was to apply this song to the situation I was in when I was 11, the roles would have been reversed, the she would be a he, my Dad and not my Mum would be the subject of this song.

Moving on a few years to my first "kiddie" relationship.

"Celine Dion - I Love You"

"I love you, please say
You love me too, these three words
They could change our lives forever
And I promise you that we will always be together
Till the end of time"

It was probably safe to say that at the age of 12/13 I didn't really have a clear view what love was, but I remember hearing this song and then singing it to said person, who shall remain nameless! At the time it summed up all I was feeling, sure it wasnt proper love, it was a kiddie imitation but I have fond memories of that time. :-)

The next one is a lyric I just adore, it's "Taylor Swift - The Way I Loved You" The song talks about how she is very comfortable in her relationship, and her partner does everything right, compliments her at the right time, gets on with her family, all her friends of jealous of her supposed perfect relationship, and then this is the chorus.

"But I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
And it’s 2 AM and I’m cursing your name
You’re so in love that you act insane
And that’s the way I loved you
Breakin’ down and coming undone
It’s a roller-coaster kinda rush
And I never knew I could feel that much
And that’s the way I loved you"

Have you ever been in that sort of relationship where you should be unbelievably happy, but your not, and when you look closer you see that the sparkle and passion has gone. That’s what I feel this song means, and I can relate, you love someone dearly, but you just don’t feel the same wow factor when you see them anymore. I think all relationships get to this point eventually, but I also thing you can get it back if you want to and are willing to try.

Now onto “Lost Prophets - All Ways, Always” I love this song, and not just for the lyrics, although if you listen to the words its quite a sad song in a way it makes you feel good and uplifts you because of the music itself.

“And I'm sorry for what happened,
But I want you there to see,
That I'm changing all my actions,
I don't wanna set you free.

Always, all ways I want to see you through
Always, all ways me and you
And I wait here on my own,
And I wait for you to see,
All the time I spend alone now won't comfort me.”

To me this song is about wanting someone who doesnt want you, and thats a bitch. It hurts alot, but in the end you can only come out of it a stronger person. I adore the lyrics in this song.

"Katy Perry - Thinking Of You"

"Comparisons are easily done
Once you've had a taste of perfection
Like an apple hanging from a tree
I picked the ripest one
I still got the seed

You said move on
Where do I go
I guess second best
Is all I will know

Cause when I'm with him
I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one
Who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I
Was looking into your eyes"

To me this song means that you've already been with the love of your life, or at least you feel that way, and you have found someone new but they just dont compare to what you had before, and it feels like you have been given second best. It always makes me cry when I listen to it, she sang it live and the raw emotion in her voice was overwhelming.

This next song was mine and my Ex's song, it still makes me smile to think of the lyrics now, also how we found the song too. We were looking for Goo Goo Dolls songs on some download thing and came across this song thinking it was a Goo Goo Dolls song, We later found out it wasnt, but it doesnt matter, because the lyrics were so amazing it just kinda stuck.

"Edwin McCain - I'll Be"

"The strands in your eyes that color them wonderful
Stop me and steal my breath
Emeralds from mountains thrust toward the sky
Never revealing their depth
Tell me that we belong together
Dress it up with the trappings of love
I'll be captivated
I'll hang from your lips
Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above

I'll be your crying shoulder
I'll be your love suicide
and I'll be better when I'm older
I'll be the greatest fan of your life

Rain falls angry on the tin roof
As we lie awake in my bed
You're my survival, you're my living proof
My love is alive not dead
Tell me that we belong together
Dress it up with the trappings of love
I'll be captivated I'll hang from your lips
Instead of the gallows of heartache, that hang from above

Repeat Chorus

I've been dropped out, burned up, fought my way back from the dead
Tuned in, turned on, Remembered the things that you said"

Everytime I hear that song I just cant help think wow, the lyric I like most from it is "Rain falls angry on the tin roof, as we lie awake in my bed, you're my survival, your my living proof, my love is alive no dead" I think its nice to have fond memories of any song, especially when its associated with a ex :D

Hehe! The next one is "The Feeling - I Love It When You Call" I love this song, that giddy feeling you get in your stomach when someone you really like calls you and your so happy its their name thats flashed on your phone!

"I love it when you call
I love it when you call
I love it when you call
But you never call at all
So what's the complication it's only conversation
I love it when you call
But you never call at all"

I like this song so much because there is the downside that when they DONT call you feel like they never call and they have abandoned you etc. But I guess there is a downside to every upside :) I used to feel that way when I first met Andy (my Ex) we used to talk for hours n hours on the phone and never run out of things to say, yet whenever he didnt call I always used to feel like he never phoned at all!

I have loads more but I have a funny little feeling this post is gonna be quite long, I post more soon

Love and Kisses
