The road is dark
And it's a thin thin line
But I want you to know I'll walk it for you any time
Maybe your other boyfriends
Couldn't pass the test
Well if you're rough and ready for love
Honey I'm tougher than the rest

Bruce Springsteen, Tougher then the Rest. love the song, always makes me think about the other half, yes i am a sad soppy bastard at heart haha

This is our last embrace,
must I dream and always see your face
Why can't we overcome this war
Baby, maybe it is just because I didn't know you at all

Jeff Buckley, Last Goodbye. again, i just love the whole song but i figured its too long to write everything!

"Tell me what it is you want,
i've nothing left to give,
You've taken everything i loved
And cursed me here to live.

But, all that i can think of,
Is the good things we've done.
Even though my love was blind
I see who you've become ...."

Walk away - track written by me. (c)

+1 on Jeff Buckley.....

Kiss me, please kiss me
Kiss me out of desire babe and not consolation
Oh you know it makes me so angry cos I know that in time
I'll only make you cry
This is our last goodbye

Loved his version of Hallelujah too and his own Lover You Should've Come Over. That entire song is genius.

I saw Adam leave the garden with an apple in his hand.
I said 'now you're out what you gonna do?'
Plant some crops and prey for rain, maybe raise a little cane.
I'm an orphan now and I'm only passing through.

Hey hey, my my- I think it's an inspiring song and reminds me of my dad who is a great inspiration to me

It's better to burn out than to fade away
My my, hey hey

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll

Led Zeppelin Stairway to Heaven

My favourite ever is from an artist who has just actually hit the charts in Ireland well to my knowledge anyway he has been famous in america for quite a while now.

It is Jason Mraz - I'm Your's

So i won't hesitate no more,no more.
It cannot wait i'm sure.
There's no need to complicate.
Our time is short,
This is our fate, i'm yours.

Bob Dylan - Things Have Changed.

''Lot of water under the bridge, lot of other stuff too.
Don't get up gentlemen, I'm only passing through''.

This song is amazing , but these lines just hit me .

Partial to a bit of BB myself. This has always been may favourite of his:

She danced with me and I still hold that memory soft and sweet
And I stare up at her window, as I walk down her street
But I never made the first team, I just made the first team laugh
And she never came to the phone, she was always in the bath

"Everything dies baby that's a fact, maybe everything that dies, someday comes back"

Bruce Springsteen - Atlantic City

"Maybe I just wanna fly, wanna live I don't wanna die, maybe I just wanna breathe, maybe I just don't believe"

"Maybe I will never be, all the things that I wanna be, now is not the time to cry, now's the time to find out why"

Oasis - Live Forever

I will most likely post more, I have a lot of lyrics I love..don't know why I like them in particular, they just click with me I guess.

When you try your best but you don't succeed,
When you get what you want but not what you need,
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep.
Stuck in reverse.
Lights will guide you home and ignite your bones and I will try and fix you.

Struck a Nerve - Bad Religion

There's an old man on a city bus
Holding a candy cane
And it isn't even christmas
He see's a note in the obituary
That his last friend has died

Prayer of The Refugee - Rise Against

We are the angry and the desperate,
The hungry, and the cold,
We are the ones who kept quiet,
And always did what we were told.

But we’ve been sweating while you slept so calm,
In the safety of your home.
We’ve been pulling out the nails that hold up
Everything you’ve known.

I'm a sucker for hardcore

Tomorrow never knows what it doesn't know too soon....

Morning Glory - Oasis

I just love Noel's writing style. Lots of his lyrics have a deeper meaning than some other similar bands of the time.

"Now that I've tried bein' everyone's friend
only to find I mean nothin' to them
but I've givin' it up on wantin' to fit in"

What Do You See - Mick Flannery

"It’s a restless hungry feeling
That don’t mean no one no good
When ev’rything I’m a-sayin’
You can say it just as good.
You’re right from your side
I’m right from mine
We’re both just one too many mornings
An’ a thousand miles behind"

One Too Many Mornings - Bob Dylan
