    Default favorite songs

    Thinking about dragonfly's post about feelings, I went back to listen to probably one of my all time favorite love songs, and thought a neat thread would be to talk about favorite songs-romantic or not. This song was written by Fish, a scottish singer who was lead singer for the group Marillion in the 80's. For my UK friends you might remember the song Kayleigh that was a big hit for him.

    [Dick/Simmonds/Lindes]

    I've got a reputation of being a man with a gift of words
    Romantic poetic type or so they say
    But I find it hard to express the way I feel about you
    Without getting involved with the old clichés

    In the old clichés, it's an old cliché

    This song's begun so many times but never in a way
    That you won't consider to be an old cliché.
    I want to say that I need you, I miss you when you're away
    And how it seemed like fate - oh here we go - the same old clichés

    It's the same old clichés

    It's not that I'm embarrassed or shy, well, you know me too well
    But I want to make this song special in a way that you can tell
    That it's solely for you and nobody else
    For my best friend, my lover, when I need help - cliché
    Everything I want to say to you is wrapped up in an old cliché
    I'd waited so long to find you, I'd been through the heartbreak and pain
    But of course you already know that 'cause you've been through the same
    That's why I'm trying to say with my deepest sincerity
    That's why I'm finding it comes down to basic simplicities
    The best way is with an old cliché
    It's simply the best way, is with an old cliché
    Always the best way is with an old cliché
    I'll leave it to the best way, it's an old cliché
    I love you
    Raingods with Zippo's, a tin man rusts away and slowly falls apart,
    Raingods with Zippo's and all he leaves behind a bleeding broken heart.
    -Fish-

    mine is IRIS BY THE GOO GOO DOLLS:
    " IRIS"
    And i'd give up forever to touch you
    cause i know that you feel me somehow
    your the closest to heaven that i'll ever be and i dont want to go home right now
    and all i can tast is this moment
    and all i can breath is your life
    cause sooner or later its over,i just dont want to miss you tonight
    and i dont want the world to see me
    cause i dont think that they'd understand
    when everythings made to be broken i just want you to know who i am
    and you cant fight the tears that ain't coming or the moment of truth in your lies
    when everything feels like the movies yea you bleed just to know your alive
    and i dont want the world to see me
    cause i dont think that they'd understand
    when everythings made to be broken i just want you to know who i am
    I just want you to know who i am
    I just want you to know who i am ,i just want you to know who i am ,i just wany you to know who i am.

    I have so many favourite songs, but one that always touches me is lovesong by the cure

    Whenever I'm alone with you,
    you make me feel
    Like I am home again
    Whenever I'm alone with you,
    you make me feel like I am whole again

    Whenever I'm alone with you,
    you make me feel
    Like I am young again
    Whenever I'm alone with you,
    you make me feel like I am fun again

    However far away,
    I will always love you,
    However long I stay,
    I will always love you,
    Whatever words I say,
    I will always love you,
    I will always love you

    Whenever I'm alone with you,
    You make me feel like I am free again,
    Whenever I'm alone with you,
    You make me feel like I am clean again

    However far away,
    I will always love you,
    However long I stay,
    I will always love you,
    Whatever words I say,
    I will always love you,
    I will always love you

    Savin Me Nickelback
    Prison gates won’t open up for me
    On these hands and knees I’m crawling
    Oh, I reach for you

    Well I’m terrified of these four walls
    These iron bars can’t hold my soul in
    All I need is you
    Come please I’m calling
    And oh I scream for you
    Hurry I’m falling
    I'm falling

    Show me what it’s like
    To be the last one standing
    And teach me wrong from right
    And I’ll show you what I can be
    And say it for me
    Say it to me
    And I’ll leave this life behind me
    Say it if it’s worth savin' me

    Heaven’s gates won’t open up for me
    With these broken wings I’m falling
    And all I see is you

    These city walls ain’t got no love for me
    I’m on the ledge of the eighteenth story
    And oh I scream for you
    Come please I’m calling
    And all I need from you
    Hurry I’m falling
    I'm falling

    Show me what it’s like
    To be the last one standing
    And teach me wrong from right
    And I’ll show you what I can be
    And say it for me
    Say it to me
    And I’ll leave this life behind me
    Say it if it’s worth savin' me
    Hurry I’m falling

    Yeah, yeah-hey

    And all I need is you
    Come please I’m calling
    And oh I scream for you
    Hurry I’m falling
    I'm falling
    I'm falling

    Show me what it’s like
    To be the last one standing
    And teach me wrong from right
    And I’ll show you what I can be
    And say it for me
    Say it to me
    And I’ll leave this life behind me
    Say it if it’s worth savin' me
    Hurry I’m falling

    And say it for me
    Say it to me
    And I’ll leave this life behind me
    Say it if it’s worth savin' me

    This is my song from my special pp
    Let Me Love You


    Mmmm ..... Mmmmm.... Yeah....Mmmmm....Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
    Mmmm...Yeah....Mmmm..... Yeah, Yeah

    [Verse 1:]

    Baby I just don't get it
    Do you enjoy being hurt?
    I know you smelled the perfume, the make-up on his shirt
    You don't believe his stories
    You know that they're all lies
    Bad as you are, you stick around and I just don't know why

    If I was ya man (baby you)
    Never worry bout (what I do)
    I'd be coming home (back to you)
    Every night, doin' you right
    You're the type of woman (deserves good thangs)
    Fistful of diamonds (hand full of rings)
    Baby you're a star (I just want to show you, you are)

    [Chorus:]

    You should let me love you
    Let me be the one to give you everything you want and need
    Baby good love and protection
    Make me your selection
    Show you the way love's supposed to be
    Baby you should let me love you, love you, love you

    [Verse 2:]

    Listen
    Your true beauty's description looks so good that it hurts
    You're a dime plus ninety-nine and it's a shame
    Don't even know what you're worth
    Everywhere you go they stop and stare
    Cause you're bad and it shows
    From your head to your toes, Out of control, baby you know

    If I was ya man (baby you)
    Never worry bout (what I do)
    I'd be coming home (back to you)
    Every night doin' you right
    You're the type of woman (deserves good thangs)
    Fistful of diamonds (hand full of rings)
    Baby you're a star (I just want to show you, you are)

    [Chorus:]

    You should let me love you
    Let me be the one to give you everything you want and need
    Ooh Baby good love and protection
    Make me your selection
    Show you the way love's supposed to be
    Baby you should let me....

    [Bridge:]

    You deserve better girl (you know you deserve better)
    We should be together girl (baby)
    With me and you it's whatever girl, hey!
    So can we make this thing ours?

    [Chorus:]

    You should let me love you
    Let me be the one to give you everything you want and need
    Baby good love and protection
    Make me your selection
    Show you the way love's supposed to be
    Baby you should let me love you, love you, love you

    [repeat til it ends (about 3 times)]

    [Mario (talking):]
    Let me love you that's all you need baby
    Life throws curve balls, get battin and stay strong! Momof6

    I really like old R & B but this song hit a nerve with me and I have to say right now its one of my favorites...formally of Creed

    SCOTT STAPP LYRICS

    "Surround Me"

    They say no man's an island but I tend to disagree
    I guess they've never seen my island,
    And where it lies at sea
    I'm lost inside my memory.
    I'm still in disbelief.
    If I could paint a picture for you this is what you'd see

    I'm down on my knees
    Begging you to rescue me
    Please stop me
    Don't let me run
    Surround me...Surround me...now

    A wounded man sounds desperate when he's lost all his belief
    Can you look into my eyes and say you won't betray me
    We're running out of time
    How precious time can be
    I'm counting all the moments of the times you could have helped me

    I'm down on my knees
    Begging you to rescue me
    Please stop me
    Don't let me run
    Surround me...Surround me

    I'm down on my knees
    Begging you to rescue me
    Please stop me
    Don't let me run
    Surround me...Surround me

    Surround me now

    Friends in your life are like pillars on your porch.
    Sometimes they hold you up and sometimes they lean on you.
    Sometimes it's just enough to know they're standing by.

    The soul defender of anything I fear
    The baby conceiver, the make me believer
    The joy bringer, the love giver

    Everything, everything I want and I want it
    {He is} So {He is}, so {He is}
    And so much more than I thought it could be
    {So right} So right {So right} girls, I

    hmmm one more :PETER Gabriel
    Your eyes
    In your eyes love i get so lost ,sometimes days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
    when i run away
    i drive off in my car
    but wichever way i go i come back to where you are
    All ny instincts ,they return ,and the grand facade,so soon will burn,without a noise,without my pride i reach out from the inside
    in your eyes
    the light the heat
    in your eyes
    i am compleat
    in your eyes
    i see the doorway of a thousand churches
    in your eyes
    the resolution of all fruitless searches
    in your eyes
    oh i want to be complete ,i want to touch the light the heat i see in your eyes
    love,i dont like to see so much pain,so much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
    i get so tierd of working so hard for our survival,i took the time with you to keep me awake and alive
    and all my instincts they return and the grand facade,so soon will burn,without a noise,without my pride,i reach out from the inside
    in your eyes,the light the heat,in your eyes i am complete,in your eyes,i see the doorway of a thousand churches,in your eyes,the resolution of all the fruitless seaches in your eyes oh i want to complete i want to touch the heat i see in your eyes
    in your eyes ,in your eyes ,in your eyes
    A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world.

    Pour les personnes qui parlent français:

    The Emergency Kisses by Stereolab

    je donnerais cher pour être à nouveau
    assise sur un banc au parc avec toi
    le fond de mon coeur était radiation
    la toutes les couleurs, une révélation

    le temps s’est figé et la j’ai vu
    combien tes lèvres sont désirables
    l’impalpable est devenu matière
    il s’est clotie contre le vide

    la tendresse aboutie
    la violente carresse
    qui réveille dans mon être
    chaviré
    une énigme


    (Pardon if I've missed any accents, I'm in a hurry !)
