Writers Corner- Words Of Others

Is there a poem you read that really struck your heart? A song that just seemed to make sense? This is the place to post others works. Make sure to give credit to whoever wrote the piece.

Re: Writers Corner- Words Of Others

I've always thought this had a lot of meaning:

Sometimes is never quite enough
If you're flawless, then you'll win my love
Don't forget to win first place
Don't forget to keep that smile on your face

Be a good boy
Try a little harder
You've got to measure up
And make me prouder

How long before you screw it up
How many times do I have to tell you to hurry up
With everything I do for you
The least you can do is keep quiet

Be a good girl
You've gotta try a little harder
That simply wasn't good enough
To make us proud

I'll live through you
I'll make you what I never was
If you're the best, then maybe so am I
Compared to him compared to her
I'm doing this for your own damn good
You'll make up for what I blew
What's the problem...why are you crying

Be a good boy
Push a little farther now
That wasn't fast enough
To make us happy
We'll love you just the way you are
If you're perfect 

 

..Alanis Morissette

good song,  good album.  her inspiration behind the album was her break-up with Dave Coulier.

Its a little long, so I'm just going to paste the link to the lyrics. Its Show Me The Way, by Styx. It has always been a song close to my heart. Here is just two lines:

All the heroes and legends I knew as a child have fallen to idols of clay
And I feel this empty place inside so afraid that Ive lost my faith

 

I would also like to link to Jim Croce's song Time In a Bottle. I don't think I have ever heard a greater expression of love in a set of words:

 

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
Id save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you

I've always loved this poem.  Wish I had written it.  Lol

 

A Drinking Song:

Wine comes in at the mouth.

And love comes in at the eye;

That's all we know for truth

Before we die.

I lift my glass to my mouth,

I look at you, and I sigh.

W.B. Yeats

"You've got to be crazy, gotta have a real need."

I ran across this song today... and fell in love... it just seemed very unique and poetic to me, but at the same time sorta reminded me of Return to Innocence by Enigma as far as the sound went... it's called Running With the Devil and it's sung by Alexz Johnson (don't roll your eyes at me!)...

Song:

Running With The D...

Lyrics:

Looking up straight
Find a hand on his shoulder
Trying to find his way through the city
Crawling through an alley
On the floor, by your door
Needing help with the feeling that he's had before

Never calling anyone
Feeling unloved
Saying goodbye
Life is better when you're high, nevermind when you're there
Cause they never play fair
They never play fair

Maybe you will, maybe you won't
Turn the clock around now
You think it's always better, but it won't
Take you away up out of here
Standing on the tracks
For someone to appear

Running with the devil, running with the devil
Running with the devil, running with the devil
Running with the devil, running with the devil instead

Running with the devil, running with the devil
Running with the devil, running with the devil
Running with the devil, running with the devil instead

Memories hurt even more when you burn
Like you’re walking on a tightrope, having no hope
Looking down for a face or smile
You find it there, you fell

Writing neat letters to yourself, maybe this one will help
Throw it all away and hurt yourself
When you’ve done see, what was all about
See the hurt in hell

Your heart's letting you down, feeling unfound
Like you’re in a race, no end in sight
Everyday has a night, every night has another fight
Steal me, put me in your pocket, I’ll be there
Take me out when you can’t shout, can’t find a reason why you’re here
Send you to a place where the brave win the race

Maybe you will, maybe you won't
Turn the clock around now
You think it's always better but it won't
Take you away up out of here
Standing on the tracks
For someone to appear

Running with the devil, running with the devil
Running with the devil, running with the devil
Running with the devil, running with the devil instead

Running with the devil, running with the devil
Running with the devil, running with the devil
Running with the devil, running with the devil instead

You fly away, you find your way
You give it all away, give it all away
Nobody - body -bo - bo - no no, oh no

Maybe you will, maybe you won't
Turn the clock around now
You think it's always better but it won't
Take you away up out of here
Standing on the tracks
For someone to appear

Running with the devil, running with the devil
Running with the devil, running with the devil
Running with the devil, running with the devil instead

Running with the devil, running with the devil
Running with the devil, running with the devil
Running with the devil, running with the devil instead

It’s okay, never really want to stay where you staying
When you really want to run, run away
When you want a break
It’s okay, when you really need to stay where you’re staying
When you really run, run away

verse lyrics

Hey vanity
This vial is empty
So are you
Hey glamourus
This vial is not God any more

Prostitute
Climb back down from the floor
Please dont fudge around
And die like this
Cause I love her
