If you had to pick one verse from a song to describe your life, what would it be?

Mine is from Sublime's "Wrong Way'...

"Annie are you sad?
Wanna shoot your dad?
I'll do anything I can
The wrong way."

Okay... let's break this down...

I have issues with my father. He physically abused my entire family (two sisters, mother, and I) for as long as I can remember. He verbally abused too... he was a smart man and he could say some things that crushed my heart when I was little.

Well, my dad was a drug addict and a drug dealer. We lived behind bulletproof glass, because when I was little one time we came home and there was a bullet hole in my window (we lived in a bad area). So people were always shooting at my dad...

When I grew older I hated him (I'm still bitter). I've thought millions of times how great "revenge" would be on him... but then I realized.

It's the wrong way. Revenge would just be becoming him... like everybody who's come from a bad background I have to rise above. So that's what I try to do...

So, stupid as it sounds, I'm Annie :)

What short verse does this for you?

"Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear"

Run by Snow Patrol

Those sorta describe how I feel about my friends and significant others, I feel like I'm always the person doing the listening, the comforting, the guiding. Then for once I'd like it to be the other way around, for someone to listen to me, comfort me, and guide me.

Plus this is just a really beautiful song.

"Your voice is small and fading
And you're hiding here alone
And your mother loves your father
Cuz she's got nowhere to go"

Acoustic #3 By Goo Goo Dolls.
This isn't my favourite song by them, but I do think this describes my life best.



When I was growing up, My mum was an alcoholic (still is) and she went loopy a couple times.

And after awhile was abusive against my dad and verbally abused me.

I would hide when they were shouting at each other, which would be everyday.
Your voice is small and fading
And you're hiding here alone


They split when I was 7.
And your mother loves your father
Cuz she's got nowhere to go

"If you think I’ll sit around as the world goes by
You’re thinkin’ like a fool cause it’s a case of do or die
Out there is a fortune waitin’ to be had
You think I’ll let it go you’re mad
You’ve got another thing comin’"


No explaination needed. :oddgrin:

I wanna see what's never been seen
I wanna live that age-old dream
Come on boy let's go together
Let's take the best right now


Linda Rondstat: Love is a Rose, which is the Best Country song in the world. That is me about 50 percent of the time.

The rest of the time I am:

It’s almost like the hard times circle ’round
A couple drops and they all start coming down
Yeah, I might feel defeated,
I might hang my head
I might be barely breathing - but I’m not dead

Jo Dee Messina: Second best country song in the world.

If you need an explanation, to damn bad.

Getting it on with ...
I swear this really happened
I pulled my trick maneuver
That's when I heard it snappin'

She broke my dick
OOOWWWWW
She goddamn broke my dick

Ever since I met her
My life's been on the rocks
Cold ice packs and heating pads
And band aids for my ...(penis)

okay on a more serious note there are too many songs that define me so i will post two of them.

the first is one tin soldier:
Listen, children, to a story
That was written long ago,
'Bout a kingdom on a mountain
And the valley-folk below.

On the mountain was a treasure
Buried deep beneath the stone,
And the valley-people swore
They'd have it for their very own.

Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven,
You can justify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgement day,
On the bloody morning after....
One tin soldier rides away.

So the people of the valley
Sent a message up the hill,
Asking for the buried treasure,
Tons of gold for which they'd kill.

Came an answer from the kingdom,
"With our brothers we will share
All the secrets of our mountain,
All the riches buried there."

Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven,
You can justify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgement day,
On the bloody morning after....
One tin soldier rides away.

Now the valley cried with anger,
"Mount your horses! Draw your sword!"
And they killed the mountain-people,
So they won their just reward.

Now they stood beside the treasure,
On the mountain, dark and red.
Turned the stone and looked beneath it...
"Peace on Earth" was all it said.

Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven,
You can justify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgement day,
On the bloody morning after....
One tin soldier rides away.

Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven,
You can justify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgement day,
On the bloody morning after....
One tin soldier rides away.
maybe i don't fully understand the lyrics, but sometimes i feel like the soldier in this song. i stand up for what i think may be right, but in the end may do wrong, and that sometimes makes people resent me and therefore i "ride away" or am lonely.

another one that i feel describes me is seasons in the sun
Goodbye to you, my trusted friend.
We've known each other since we're nine or ten.
Together we climbed hills or trees.
Learned of love and ABC's,
skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.
Goodbye my friend, it's hard to die,
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
Pretty girls are everywhere.
When you see them I'll be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the hills that we climbed
were just seasons out of time.
Goodbye, Papa, please pray for me,
I was the black sheep of the family.
You tried to teach me right from wrong.
Too much wine and too much song,
wonder how I get along.
Goodbye, Papa, it's hard to die
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
Little children everywhere.
When you see them I'll be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the wine and the song,
like the seasons, all have gone.
Goodbye, Michelle, my little one.
You gave me love and helped me find the sun.
And every time that I was down
you would always come around
and get my feet back on the ground.
Goodbye, Michelle, it's hard to die
when all the bird are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
With the flowers ev'rywhere.
I whish that we could both be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the stars we could reach
were just starfishs on the beach
i always look back at memories and feel like im wasting my time and that before i know it i will be out of time, i want to study, do well, and have fun. i feel like when im old ill look back and regret it. this song kind of reflects me because i have had fun times, but im afraid that they may be over...

my songs are a little bit older than everyone elses, but how the fuck does a song that is just "people = shit" ever become a song. :thumbsdn:

EDIT: shit one verse...

"Sometimes I feel I've got to
Run away I've got to
Get away
From the pain that you drive into the heart of me
The love we share
Seems to go nowhere
I've lost my lights
I toss and turn I can't sleep at night"

The Marilyn Manson version is better than the original...

Anyways...it's a boyfriend girlfriend issue...she's quite the pessimist and I can't keep dating her because of that. It eats away at me until I'm ready to just get out of the car and leave.

Sixteen clumsy and shy
That's the story of my life.....
Taken from "Half a Person", The Smiths.

You probably can't tell cause the anonymity of the internet allows me to cut loose a bit, but I am really, painfully shy most of the time. Nervous, clumsy, quiet. Yep, that's me. But I'm working on it. I actually used to be much worse. For awhile my nickname was "Mute". :happysad:

I don't really like the band nor much of their music, but I'd have to go with

Goo Goo Dolls "Dont Want the World to See Me"

"And I don't want the world to see me,
Cuz I don't think that they'd understand
that everything's made to be broken.
I just want you to know who I am."

I've just come to the stage in my life where losing everything but people wouldn't make me that sad. I view relationships with people as the most valuable things on earth, and without them we're all pretty much nothing. It's weird that this verse describes me most because I don't even listen to this kind of music...but it still holds true in alot of regards.

Sometimes when I feel alone/distant my other song is

Millencolin "The Ballad"

"Do you know who's that guy
who's all alone?
Do you care enough to see
he's in pain and misery?"

Basically I'm a pretty introverted person. I don't like to share my emotions that much unless the person really wants me to or invokes it upon themselves. Besides that, it, like many other songs, is a beautiful song.

Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will.
I sure could use a vacation from this

Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
Freaks

Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any fucking time. Any fucking day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Fret for your figure and
Fret for your latte and
Fret for your hairpiece and
Fret for your lawsuit and
Fret for your prozac and
Fret for your pilot and
Fret for your contract and
Fret for your car.

It's a
Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
Freaks

Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any fucking time. Any fucking day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Some say a comet will fall from the sky.
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still.
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipshits.

Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will cuz
I sure could use a vacation from this

Silly shit, stupid shit...

One great big festering neon distraction,
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied.

Learn to swim.

Mom's gonna fix it all soon.
Mom's comin' round to put it back the way it ought to be.

Learn to swim.

Fuck L Ron Hubbard and
Fuck all his clones.
Fuck all those gun-toting
Hip gangster wannabes.

Learn to swim.

Fuck retro anything.
Fuck your tattoos.
Fuck all you junkies and
Fuck your short memory.

Learn to swim.

Fuck smiley glad-hands
With hidden agendas.
Fuck these dysfunctional,
Insecure actresses.

Learn to swim.

Cuz I'm praying for rain
And I'm praying for tidal waves
I wanna see the ground give way.
I wanna watch it all go down.
Mom please flush it all away.
I wanna watch it go right in and down.
I wanna watch it go right in.
Watch you flush it all away.

Time to bring it down again.
Don't just call me pessimist.
Try and read between the lines.

I can't imagine why you wouldn't
Welcome any change, my friend.

I wanna see it all come down.
suck it down.
flush it down.​

If we're going to post full lyrics, on any given bad day...this one sums it up.
Tool.

Wake... from your sleep
The drying of your tears
Today.. we escape
We escape.

Pack and get dressed
Before your father hears us
Before.. all hell.. breaks loose.

Breathe... keep breathing
Don’t lose.. your nerve.
Breathe... keep breathing
I can’t do this.. alone.

Sing us a song
A song to keep us warm
There’s such a chill
Such a chill.

You can laugh
A spineless laugh
We hope that your rules and wisdom choke you
Now we are one
In everlasting peace

We hope that you choke.. that you choke
We hope that you choke.. that you choke
We hope that you choke.. that you choke


can you tell i have problems with my father? Nah...

Erm...I know I already used a song earlier, but I wasn't at home with my music collection and I picked the only one I could think of...
But now that I'm here, I have a great one to sum up alot of kids childhoods.

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful
A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
And all the birds in the trees, they'd be singing so happily,
So joyfully, oh playfully, watching me.

The song is by Scooter...it's called The Logical Song.

Well, it's 40 below
Got a heater in my truck
And I don't give a fuck
And I'm off the rodeo......


Basically, don't care what's going on as long as I'm happy and doing what I want to do. And cowboys are so hot!!!

You get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing
Well a swim with the sharks is like me
I'll find them for three and catch them and kill them for ten
When they smile just cut off your legs
There ain't no time to think only to beg
Twenty no twenty five - three tons
The one in the front is the one on the run
Well it's blood red
Fair game for the eats 'cause this my home this is my street
Well a swim with the sharks like weak is for strong
Nobody knows it yet not right from wrong
Deep is the dark from the depths of the dive
Am I okay, am I alive?
Well the hot house now seems like suckin' on some ice cream
Funny thing is it'll make a grown man scream
Want to stay afloat but don't forget it
All I've got to say you're gonna need a bigger boat
Well a swim with the sharks is like...
...now
...never
...deadly
...clever
...the darkness
...the sun
...forever
...done​

A Swim With The Sharks by Powerman 5000

Don't particularly like the band, but that song sums it up pretty damn good.

I'm a little teapot, short and stout
Here is my handle, here is my spout
When I get all steamed up, hear me shout
Just tip me over and pour me out!


I'm a clever teapot, yes it's true
Here's an example of what I can do
I can change my handle to my spout
Just tip me over and pour me out
