What are some of the song you have heard that describe a situation you are, or have been, in perfectly? Just to make conversation easier, you can also post why it touches you so. You don't have to link it or post lyrics or anything.

I'll start.

Breaking Benjamin's "Had Enough"

Lyrics: http://www.azlyrics..../hadenough.html

This song touches me, because at the age of 10, my recently divorced mother moved in with Freddy (his name has been changed for personal reasons). At first, things were great, but after about two years (age 12) he met a speed dealer. This is when the fighting, and beatings started. I was expected to wake up at 5:30 AM everyday to work until after nightfall, for free, because "that's just how life is." I would be given a three man job, and told to do it by myself. If I failed, my mother was beaten. This song is dedicated to Freddy, because that greedy bastard ruined my childhood, self esteem, and worst of all, my mother's will to do anything to try to help me. Every word of this song describes how I feel.

Now, it's your turn.

"one step closer", Lincoln Park. That's why it's my dad's ringtone for when he calls me.
Accually, I had a playlist of love songs (term used loosely) for my last GF.

Anette's song to her son.

The lyrics are simple, but gorgeous. Her feelings pour into her voice.


Years, all the years
All the tears
I longed for you

All the prayers
My despair
Couldnt bare
To wait for you
No more

My dear - I´m here
No fear - Invincible
See the stars glow all their gazing lights on you

Feel - can you feel
What I feel
I´m near you
And your hand
Holding mine
Only mine
There´s no one else
Oh you´re

My dear - I´m here
No fear - Invincible
See the stars glow all their gazing lights on you

My dear - I´m here
No fear - Invincible
Hear the thunder sing its roam for you tonight

Christina perri - Jar of hearts
Because it perfectly describes the way I feel about people who pretended to care, but just used me because they wanted something from me, or just because it somehow had benefits for them. Not just as in relationships like the song describes, but in general. And it also more or less describes breaking free from those people.

Lunatica - The power of love
Because I think the lyrics and the music are beautiful.

She says wake up, it's no use pretending
I'll keep stealing, breathing her
Birds are leaving over autumn's ending
One of us will die inside these arms

Eyes wide open
Naked as we came
One will spread our
Ashes round the yard

She says if I leave before you darling
Don't you waste me in the ground
I lay smiling like our sleeping children
One of us will die inside these arms

Eyes wide open
Naked as we came
One will spread our
Ashes round the yard

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill 

I could see the city light 
Wind was blowing, time stood still 
Eagle flew out of the night 
He was something to observe 
Came in close, I heard a voice 
Standing stretching every nerve 
Had to listen had no choice 
I did not believe the information 
I just had to trust imagination 
My heart going boom boom boom 
"Son," he said "Grab your things, 
I've come to take you home." 
 
To keep in silence I resigned 
My friends would think I was a nut 
Turning water into wine 
Open doors would soon be shut 
So I went from day to day 
Tho' my life was in a rut 
"Till I thought of what I'd say 
Which connection I should cut 
I was feeling part of the scenery 
I walked right out of the machinery 
My heart going boom boom boom 
"Hey" he said "Grab your things 
I've come to take you home." 
(Back home.) 
 
When illusion spin her net 
I'm never where I want to be 
And liberty she pirouette 
When I think that I am free 
Watched by empty silhouettes 
Who close their eyes but still can see 
No one taught them etiquette 
I will show another me 
Today I don't need a replacement 
I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant 
My heart going boom boom boom 
"Hey" I said "You can keep my things, 
They've come to take me home."

Love I get so lost, sometimes
Days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
When I want to run away
I drive off in my car
But whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are
 
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 to a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes
I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
The heat I see in your eyes
 
Love, I don't like to see so much pain
So much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to 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 to a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes
I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
The heat I see in your eyes
In your eyes in your eyes
In your eyes in your eyes
In your eyes in your eyes

This Christina Aguilera song called "Hurt". Makes me think of my grandparents and parents. It is odd becoming the oldest generation of your family while still so young. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwCykGDEp7M

I'm waiting for my moment to come
I'm waiting for the movie to begin
I'm waiting for a revelation
I'm waiting for someone to count me in

'Cause now I only see my dreams, in everything I touch
Feel their cold hands on everything that I love
Cold like some magnificent skyline
Out of my reach but always in my eye line now

Ooh, we're tumbling down
We're spiralling
Ooh, tied up to the ground
We're spiralling

I fashioned you from jewels and stone
I made you in the image of myself
I gave you everything you wanted
So you would never know anything else

But every time I reach for you, you slip through my fingers
Into cold sunlight, laughing at the things that
I had planned, the map of my world gets
Smaller as I sit here pulling at the loose threads now

Ooh, we're tumbling down
We're spiralling
Ooh, tied up to the ground
We're spiralling

Ooh, when we fall in love
We're just falling
Ooh, in love with ourselves
We're spiralling

Did you wanna be a winner?
Did you wanna be an icon?
Did you wanna be famous?
Did you wanna be the president?

Did you wanna start a war?
Did you wanna have a family?
Did you wanna be in love?
Did you wanna be in love?

I never saw the light
I never saw the light
I waited up all night
But I never saw the light

Ooh, when we fall in love
We're just falling
Ooh, in love with ourselves
We're spiralling

Ooh, we're tumbling down
We're spiralling
Ooh, tied up to the ground
We're spiralling

For me it's got to be 'Brothers in Arms' by Dire Straits, such an emotive song it's been used a few times in movies and television; but never better than at the close of the West Wing episode 'Two Cathedrals'.

 

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arm

Through these fields of destruction
Baptism of fire
I've watched all your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell
And the moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms

XIII Stoleti - Transylvanian Werewolf (it is band from Czech Republic, the clip is very old:) )

Closterkeller - Nocarz (it is Polish band, the title is game of words; in Polish: night - "noc", a very strong man - "mocarz", so Nocarz - a strong creature of the night, simply - the vampire)
