What song do you most identify with in terms of your issues


Recommended Posts

I'm very fond of Bob Dylan and Conor Oberst, so naturally I will choose lyrics from them.

So Dylan first

"I'm just average, common too

I'm just like him, the same as you

I'm everybody's brother and son

I ain't different than anyone

It ain't no use a-talking to me

It's just the same as talking to you"


"Now I gotta friend who spends his life

Stabbing my picture with a bowie-knife

Dreams of strangling me with a scarf

When my name comes up he pretends to barf.

I've got a million friends!"

-Same song.


"It was in the march of the winter I turned 17

that I bought those pills

I thought I would need

and I wrote a letter to my family

said it's not your fault

and you've been good to me

just lately I've been feeling

like I don't belong

like the ground is not mine to walk upon

and I've heard that music

echo through the house

where my grandmother drank

by herself

and I sat watching a flower

as it was withering

I was embarrased by it's honesty

so I'd prefer to be remembered as a smiling face

not this fucking wreck

that's taken it's place

so please forgive what I have done

no you can't stay mad at the setting sun

cause we all get tired I mean eventually

and there's nothing left to do but sleep

but spring came bearing sunlight

those persuasive rays

so I gave myself a few more days

my salvation it came, quite suddenly

when Justin spoke very plainly

he said "Of course it's your decision,

but just so you know,

if you decide to leave,

soon I will follow""


"Well the future's got me worried such awful thoughts

My head's a carousel of pictures, the spinning never stops

I just want someone to walk in front

And I'll follow the leader

Like when I fell under the weight of a schoolboy crush

Started carrying her books and doing lots of drugs

I almost forgot who I was

But came to my senses

Now I'm trying to be assertive, I'm making plans

Want to rise to the occasion, yeah meet all their demands

But all I do is just lay in bed

And hide under the covers

Yeah I know I should be brave

But I'm just too afraid of all this change

And it's too hard to focus through all this doubt

I keep making this to-do list but nothing gets crossed out

Working on the record seems pointless now

When the world ends who's gonna hear it?

But I'm trying to take some comfort in written words

Yeah Tim, I heard your album and it's better than good

When you get off tour I think we should

Hang and black out together

Cause I've been feeling sentimental for days gone by

All those summers singing, drinking, laughin', wasting our time

Remember all those songs and the way we smiled

In those basements made of music?

But now I've got to crawl to get anywhere at all

I'm not as strong as I thought

So when I'm lost in a crowd, I hope that you'll pick me out

I long to be found, the grass grew high, I laid down

Now I'll wait for a hand to lift me up, help me stand

I've been laying so long, don't wanna lay here no more

Don't wanna lay here no more, don't wanna lay here no more

Everything that happens is supposed to be

And it's all pre-determined, can't change your destiny

Guess I'll just keep moving, someday maybe

I'll get to where I'm going"


"So then I fell like that girl

from a balance beam

A gymnasium of eyes

all were holding on to me

I lifted one foot to cross the other

and I felt myself slipping

It was a small mistake

Sometimes that is all it takes

Now I'm staring at my wrist,

hoping that the time is right

When the planets will align

There will be no planets to align

Just the carcass of the sun

And little painted marbles spinning senseless

through an endless black sky

It was in a foreign hotel's bathtub

I baptized myself in change

And one by one I drowned all of the people I had been

I emerged to find the parallels were fewer

I was cleansed

I looked in the mirror

And someone new was there

But, I was as helpless as a chess piece

when I was lifted up by someone's hand

And delivered from the corner

my enemies had got me in

But in all of my salvation

I still felt imprisoned inside that holding cell

that is myself"


"and the world's got me dizzy again

you'd think after 22 years I'd be used to the spin

and it only feels worse when I stay in one place

so I'm always pacing around or walking away

I keep drinking the ink from my pen

and I'm balancing history books up on my head

but it all boils down to one quotable phrase

"If you love something give it away"

So I'm up at dawn, putting on my shoes

I just want to make a clean escape

I'm leaving but I don't know where to

I know I'm leaving but I don't know where to"


"I read the body count out of the paper

And now it's written all over my face

And no one ever plans to sleep out in the gutter

But sometimes that's just the most comfortable place

So I'm drinking, breathing, writing, singing

Everyday I'm on the clock

My mind races with all my longings

But can't keep up with what I got

Well I could have been a famous singer

If I had someone else's voice

But failures always sounded better

Let's fuck it up, boys, make some noise

The sun came up with no conclusions

Flowers sleeping in their beds

The city's cemetery's humming

I'm wide awake, it's morning"

Or... 4non Blondes Whats going on? :(

.. I'm really sorry, it's so long but I'm really indecisive, I couldn't possibly choose. :( :(
