    Seal – Love’s Devine

    there the rain storm came over me
    and I felt my spirit break
    I had lost
    all of my
    belief you see
    and realised my mistake
    but time
    threw a prayer to me
    and all around me became still

    (chorus)
    i need love
    love’s devine
    please forgive me now I see that I’ve been blind
    give me love
    love is what I need to help me know my name

    through the rain storm came sanctury
    and I felt my spirit fly
    I have found
    all of my
    reality
    and realised what it takes

    (chorus)
    ’cause i need love
    love’s devine
    please forgive me now I see that I’ve been blind
    give me love
    love is what I need to help me know my name

    oh
    I dont bed
    dont pray
    show me how to live it
    promise me you wont forsake
    ’cause love can help me know my name

    well I tried to say there’s nothing wrong
    but inside I felt me lying all along
    what the message here was plain to see
    believe me

    (chorus)
    ’cause i need love
    love’s devine
    please forgive me now I see that I’ve been blind
    give me love
    love is what I need to help me know my name

    oh
    I dont bed
    dont pray
    show me how to live it
    promise me you wont forsake
    ’cause love can help me know my name
    love can help me know my name

    Thanks!!

    I surrender

    Written By:
    L. Biancaniello, S. Watters

    Lyrics:
    There’s so much life
    I’ve left to live
    And this fire’s burning still
    When I watch you look at me
    I think I could find the will
    To stand for every dream
    And forsake this solid ground
    And give up this fear within
    Of what would happen if they end, you
    I’m in love with you

    ‘Cause I’d surrender everything
    To feel the chance, to live again
    I reach to you
    I know you can feel it too
    We’d make it through

    A thousand dreams I still believe
    I’d make you give them all to me
    I’d hold you in my arms and never let go
    I surrender

    I know
    I can’t survive another night away from you
    You’re the reason I go on
    And now I need to live the truth

    Right now, there’s no better time
    From this fear, I will break free
    And I’ll live again with love
    And know they can’t take that away from me
    And they will see… yeah

    (I’d surrender everything)
    To feel the chance, to live again
    I reach to you
    I know you can feel it too
    We’d make it through

    A thousand dreams I still believe
    I’ll make you give them all to me
    I’ll hold you in my arms and never let go
    I surrender

    Every night gets longer
    And this voice’s getting stronger baby
    I’ll swallow my pride
    And I’ll be alive
    Can’t you hear my call?
    I surrender all…

    (I’ll surrender everything)
    (To feel the chance, to live again)
    I reach to you
    I know you can feel it too
    We’ll make it through

    A thousand dreams I still believe
    I’ll make you give them all to me
    I’ll hold you in my arms and never let go
    I surrender

    Right here, right now
    I’d give my life to live again
    I’ll break free
    Take me, my everything

    I surrender all to you
    (Right now)
    Right now
    (I’d give my life to live again)
    I’d give my life
    (I’ll break free, Take me)
    Take me, take me
    (my everything)
    My everything

    (I surrender all to you, right now)
    Right now
    (I’d give my life to live again)
    I’d give my life to you baby
    I’ll break free, yeah free

    Weak and Powerless ~A perfect Circle

    Tilling my own grave to keep me level
    Jam another dragon down the hole
    Digging to the rhythm and the echo of a solitary siren
    One that pushes me along and leaves me so

    Desperate and Ravenous
    I’m so weak and powerless over you

    Someone feed the monkey while I dig in search of China
    White as Dracula as I approach the bottom

    Desperate and Ravenous
    I’m so weak and powerless over you

    Pale angel go away
    Come again some other day
    The devil has my ear today
    I’ll never hear of what you say
    Promised I would find a little solace
    And some piece of mind
    Whatever just as long as I don’t feel so

    Desperate and Ravenous
    I’m so weak and powerless over you
    Desperate and Ravenous
    I’m so weak and powerless
    over you

    The Noose ~A Perfect Circle

    So glad to see you well
    Overcome and completely silent now
    Without himself
    You cast your demons out
    And not to pull your halo down
    Around your neck and tug you off your cloud
    But I’m more than just curious
    How you’re planning to go about
    Making your amends to the dead
    To the dead

    Recall the deeds as if
    They’re all someone else’s
    Atrocious stories
    Now you stand reborn before us all
    So glad to see you well

    And not to pull your halo down
    Around your neck and tug you to the ground
    But I’m more than just curious
    How you’re planning to go about
    Making your amends to the dead
    To the dead

    With your halo slipping down
    Your halo slipping
    Your halo slipping down
    Your halo slipping down
    Your halo slipping down [repeated]

    Your halo slipping down to choke you now

    X Amount of Word – Blue October
    Relapse
    Prevent trigger intent
    Now drown
    High strung
    Say X amount of words

    You’re solar, bipolar
    Panic disorder
    Seems harder and harder and harder
    Still you try to control it

    You mold, you mold
    Yeah you shape to mold
    Oh you’re bold you’re bold
    But your shape is bold

    You’re a symptom superficial
    To what they call knowing you
    Minus the speed,
    Could you imagine the phobia?

    Your brain is faulty wiring
    the reason for tiring
    Keep treating the curse,
    Imagine the worst
    Systematic, sympathetic
    Quite pathetic, apologetic, paramedic
    Your heart is prosthetic

    A plate of quite peculiar
    On a dish of my own
    A tablespoon of feather
    tickle me to the bone
    Give me recipes for happy
    with the chemicals gone
    Drinking freedom from a bottle
    to the tune of belong

    I’m sick of shaking
    never waking
    from the hell I achieve
    I never knew you till you left me
    with the crying disease

    Another curing, reassuring
    way to buckle the knees
    So mistreated, I repeated
    Never blessing your sneeze

    Now deleted and defeated
    I will stand on my own
    Yeah your memory that punches me
    has broken the bone

    Give me recipes for sorry
    I’m admitting I’m wrong
    Still your memory that punches me
    has broken the bone


    Just To Get High – NickelBack
    He was my best friend, I tried to help him
    But he traded everything for suffering
    And found himself alone

    I watched the lying, turn into hiding
    With scars on both his lips, his fingertips
    Were melted to the bone

    But I can still remember
    What his face looked like
    When I found him in an alley
    In the middle of the night

    Tell me what you know
    Tell me what you gone and done now
    Tell me what you know
    Tell me what you gone and done now

    Gonna do the trick, get it over with
    You’re better off to take all that
    You’ve got and burn it on the spot
    Just to get high

    Three days no sleeping, he gave up eating
    He sold his mother’s rings, she said nothing
    And pretended not to know

    He started stealing to supply the feeling
    Found out he pulled a knife on someone’s wife
    And held it to her throat

    But I can still remember
    What his face looked like
    When I found him in an alley
    In the middle of the night

    Tell me what you know
    Tell me what you gone and done now
    Tell me what you know
    Tell me what you gone and done now

    Gonna do the trick, get it over with
    You’re better off to take all that
    You’ve got and burn it on the spot
    Just to get high

    Tell me what you did, where you gone and hid?
    Show me what you really want, was it what you got?
    Slowly circle in the drain, throw it all away
    Just to get high, high, high, oh

    Tell me what you know
    Tell me what you gone and done now
    Tell me what you know
    Tell me what you gone and done now

    Gonna do the trick, get it over with
    You’re better off to take all that
    You’ve got and burn it on the spot
    Just to get high

    Tell me what did, where you gone and hid?
    Show me what you really want, was it what you got?
    Slowly circle in the drain, throw it all away
    Just to get high, just to get high
    Circle in the drain, throw it all away
    Just to get high

    Stuck In a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of
    U2
    Album: All That You Can’t Leave Behind

    I’m not afraid of anything in this world
    There’s nothing you can throw at me that I haven’t already heard
    I’m just trying to find a decent melody
    A song that I can sing in my own company

    I never thought you were a fool
    But darling, look at you
    You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight
    These tears are going nowhere, baby

    You’ve got to get yourself together
    You’ve got stuck in a moment and now you can’t get out of it
    Don’t say that later will be better now you’re stuck in a moment
    And you can’t get out of it

    I will not forsake, the colors that you bring
    But the nights you filled with fireworks
    They left you with nothing
    I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me
    I listen through your ears, and through your eyes I can see

    And you are such a fool
    To worry like you do
    I know it’s tough, and you can never get enough
    Of what you don’t really need now … my oh my

    You’ve got to get yourself together
    You’ve got stuck in a moment and you can’t get out of it
    Oh love look at you now
    You’ve got yourself stuck in a moment and you can’t get out of it

    I was unconscious, half asleep
    The water is warm till you discover how deep
    I wasn’t jumping for me it was a fall
    It’s a long way down to nothing at all

    You’ve got to get yourself together
    You’ve got stuck in a moment and you can’t get out of it
    Don’t say that later will be better now
    You’re stuck in a moment and you can’t get out of it

    And if the night runs over
    And if the day won’t last
    And if our way should falter
    Along the stony pass

    And if the night runs over
    And if the day won’t last
    And if your way should falter
    Along the stony pass
    It’s just a moment
    This time will pass
