  1. How 'bout no longer being masochistic
    How 'bout remembering your divinity
    How 'bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out
    How 'bout not equating death with stopping

  2. Back in 1957
    We had to dance a foot apart
    And they hawk-eyed us from the sidelines
    Holding their rulers without a heart
    And so with just a touch of our fingers
    I could make our circuitry explode

    All we ever wanted
    Was just to come in from the cold

    Come in
    Come in from the cold
    (we were so young)
    Oh come in
    Come in from the cold

    We really thought we had a purpose
    We were so anxious to achieve
    We had hope
    The world held promise
    For a slave to liberty
    Freely I slaved away for something better
    And I was bought and sold
    And all I ever wanted
    Was to come in from the cold

    Come in
    Come in from the cold
    (we were so sure)
    Oh come in
    Come in from the cold

    I feel your leg under the table
    Leaning into mine
    I feel renewed
    I feel disabled
    By these bonfires in my spine
    I don't know who the arsonist was
    Which incendiary soul
    But all I ever wanted
    Was just to come in from the cold

    Come in
    Come in from the cold
    (you were so warm)
    Oh come in
    Come in from the cold

    I am not some stone commission
    Like a statue in a park
    I am flesh and blood and vision
    I am howling in the dark

    Long blue shadows of the jackals
    Are falling on a pay phone by the road
    Oh, all they ever wanted
    Was to come in from the cold

    Come in
    Come in from the cold
    (I was so low)
    Oh come in
    Come in from the cold

    Is this just vulgar electricity
    Is this the edifying fire
    (it was so pure)
    Does your smile's covert complicity
    Debase as it admires
    (just a flu with a temperature)

    Are you just checking out your mojo
    Or am I just fighting off growing old
    (just a high fever)
    All I ever wanted
    Was just to come in from the cold

    Come in
    Come in from the cold
    (it was so pure)
    Oh come in
    Come in from the cold

    I know we never will be perfect
    Never entirely clear
    (when the moon shines)
    We get hurt and we just panic
    And we strike out
    Out of fear
    (you were only being kind)
    I fear the sentence of this solitude
    200 years on hold
    (for my loving crime)
    Oh and all we ever wanted
    Was just to come in from the cold

    Come in
    Come in from the cold
    (when the moon shines)
    Oh come in
    Come in from the cold

    When I thought life had some meaning
    Then I thought I had some choice
    (I was running blind)
    And I made some value judgments
    In a self-important voice
    (I was outa line)
    But then absurdity came over me
    And I longed to lose control
    (into no mind)

    Oh all I ever wanted
    Was just to come in from the cold

    Come in
    Come in from the cold
    (you were so kind)
    Please come in
    (so kind)
    Come in from the cold
    Come in come in
    Come in from the cold

  3. It's just you and me now
    Lord we've had our ups and downs
    We've been all the way up and all the way down.
    And when we were sailing high,
    I didn't stop to think how we would get by
    No one had guessed the end and neither did I
    and here we are now.

    You and me left
    Where'd it all go?
    Gotta weed though the rubble.
    I've had enough "crazy" for both of us
    You and me we'll make it up, because you and me we've had enough

    I can't say I wasn't scared
    Life seems to stay the same, but
    time doesn't care much what I think these days
    "Go one she says go on and you'll get by"

    Like sunlight for the first time
    A pretty thing unknown can make a man blind
    Misfortune ain't a curse if ya play your cards right
    gotta play em right.

    - Meg Frampton, Weeding Through The Rubble

    Too beautiful of a song to not post all of the lyrics.

  5. If I'm masculine I will be taken more seriously
    If I take a break it would make me irresponsible
    If I'm elusive I will surely be sought after often
    If I need assistance then I must be incapable

    I'd be filthy rich and still
    It would not come
    I would seduce them and still
    it would not come
    I would drink vodka and still
    it would not come
    I'd have an orgasm still
    it wouldn't come


    So much truth in this song.

  6. I hope she gives you a disease
    So that you will see
    But not enough to make you die

    But only make you cry
    Like you did to me .

    I Wish - Toni Braxton

  7. So lay with me
    I've been so scared to breathe
    You make it safe to believe
    Take my hand
    Love me for who I am
    Teach me to dream again
    It's all that I need
    You make it safe to believe
     
  8. Burn the books
    They've got too many names and psychoses
    All this incriminating evidence would surely haunt me
    If someone broke into my house

  9. I've learned love is like a brick- you can build a house or sink a dead body

  10. You can't rush it, blooms unfold in time
    No need to force it or to call it mine
    Sweet fruit of my toil creates a ripple effect
    With my hands in the soil, what you sow's what you get

    I just planted a few seeds and my whole world started growing
    Such a humble deed and now it’s love we’re sowing
    I planted a few seeds and from a simple gesture
    Filled a common need and my neighbors came together.


    Seeds by Bet.e and Stef. Honestly one of my favourite songs ever. The entire song has beautiful lyricism but the first verse and chorus kind of get the point across.
     
  11. Well, I've been afraid of changing,
    'cause I built my life around you.

  12. Oh, your love gives me a heart contusion
    Adagio breezes fill my skin with sudden red
    Your hungry flirt borders intrusion
    I'm building memories on things we have not said
    Full is not heavy as empty, not nearly my love
    Not nearly my love
    Not nearly

    Landslide is one of the best written songs of all time, honestly.
     
  13. There are a lot of those but right now this speaks to me on many levels

    I'll tie your legs
    Keep you against my chest
    Oh, you're not rid of me
    Yeah, you're not rid of me
    I'll make you lick my injuries
    I'm gonna twist your head off, see
    Till you say don't you wish you never never met her?
     
  14. I don't know why I cry
    But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
    Since I hated you
    That I used to love you


    Yes, Gwen. YES.
     
  15. How could you know what it feels like to fight the hounds of hell?,
    You think you know me so well,
    How could you know what it feels like to be outside yourself?,
    You think you know me so well, i just want you to realise i blame myself, blame myself for my reputation.

    I relate to those lirycs so much, in so many ways there so blunt and staright to the point yet anthematic and i feel so much power when i listen to/sing them.

    Kind of a clunky lyric, but I always liked this lyric form Delta's 'Mistaken Identity'

    "The sun likes to rise and the moon likes to fall and that's kind of like my life"
     
  18. I have a bunch, let me finish my Chinese food and I'll get back to you.

    This also feels like a @Jordananan or @Jonathan27 thread.
     
  19. ... How come?
