    She walks to school with the lunch
    She packed
    Nobody knows what she's
    Holdin' back
    Wearin' the same dress
    She wore yesterday
    She hides the bruises with linen
    And lace
    The teacher wonders but she
    Doesn't ask
    It's hard to see the pain
    Behind the mask
    Bearing the burden
    Of a secret storm
    Sometimes she wishes she was
    Never born
    Through the wind and the rain
    She stands hard as a stone
    In her world that she can't rise above
    But her dreams give her wings
    And she flies to a place where
    She's loved
    Concrete angel
    Somebody cries in the middle
    Of the night
    The neighbors hear, but they turn
    Out the lights
    A fragile soul caught in the hands
    Of fate
    When morning comes
    It'll be too late
    Through the wind and the rain
    She stands hard as a stone
    In her world that she can't rise above
    But her dreams give her wings
    And she flies to a place where
    She's loved
    Concrete angel
    A statue stands in a shaded place
    An angel girl with an upturned face
    A name is written on a polished rock
    A broken heart that the world forgot
    Through the wind and the rain
    She stands hard as a stone
    In her world that she can't rise above
    But her dreams give her wings
    And she flies to a place where
    She's loved
    Concrete angel

    Meet you downstairs in the bar and hurt,
    Your rolled up sleeves in your skull t-shirt,
    You say "what did you do with him today?",
    And sniffed me out like I was Tanqueray,
    'Cause you're my fella, my guy,
    Hand me your stella and fly,
    By the time I'm out the door,
    You tear men down like Roger Moore,I cheated myself,
    Like I knew I would,
    I told you I was trouble,
    You know that I'm no good,
    Sweet reunion, Jamaica and Spain,
    We're like how we were again,
    I'm in the tub, you on the seat,
    Lick your lips as I soak my feet,
    Then you notice little carpet burn,
    My stomach drops and my guts churn,
    You shrug and it's the worst,
    Who truly stuck the knife in firstI cheated myself,
    Like I knew I would
    I told you I was trouble,
    You know that I'm no good,I cheated myself,
    Like I knew I would
    I told you I was trouble,
    Yeah, you know that I'm no good.

    He left no time to regret
    Kept his dick wet
    With his same old safe bet
    Me and my head high
    And my tears dry
    Get on without my guyYou went back to what you knew
    So far removed
    From all that we went through
    And I tread a troubled track
    My odds are stackedI'll go back to black
    We only said goodbye with words
    I died a hundred times
    You go back to her
    And I go back toI go back to... us
    I love you much
    It's not enough
    You love blow and I love puff
    And life is like a pipeAnd I'm a tiny penny
    Rolling up the walls inside
    We only said goodbye with words
    I died a hundred timesYou go back to her
    And I go back to
    We only said goodbye with words
    I died a hundred timesYou go back to her
    And I go back to
    Black, black, black, black

    I open my eyes
    I try to see but I’m blinded by the white light
    I can’t remember how
    I can’t remember why
    I’m lying here tonight
    And I can’t stand the pain
    And I can’t make it go away
    No I can’t stand the pain
    How could this happen to me
    I made my mistakes
    I’ve got no where to run
    The night goes on
    As I’m fading away
    I’m sick of this life
    I just wanna scream
    How could this happen to me
    Everybody’s screaming
    I try to make a sound but no one hears me
    I’m slipping off the edge
    I’m hanging by a thread
    I wanna start this over again
    So I try to hold onto a time when nothing mattered
    And I can’t explain what happened
    And I can’t erase the things that I’ve done
    No I can’t
    How could this happen to me
    I made my mistakes
    I’ve got no where to run
    The night goes on
    As I’m fading away
    I’m sick of this life
    I just wanna scream
    How could this happen to me
    I made my mistakes
    I’ve got no where to run
    The night goes on
    As I’m fading away
    I’m sick of this life
    I just wanna scream
    How could this happen to me

    let me lurk Sun in pisces, ascendant-scorpio, Moon in leo, Venus in aquarius
    female
    Bury me softly in this womb
    I give this part of me for you
    Sand rains down and here I sit
    Holding rare flowers
    In a tomb... in bloom

    Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved
    See my heart I decorate it like a grave
    Oh, you don't understand who they thought I was supposed to be
    Look at me now I'm a man who won't let himself be

    Down in a hole, feeling so small
    Down in a hole, losing my soul
    I'd like to fly,
    But my wings have been so denied

    Down in a hole and they've put all the stones in their place
    I've eaten the sun so my tongue has been burned of the taste
    I have been guilty of kicking myself in the teeth
    I will speak no more of my feelings beneath

    Down in a hole, feeling so small
    Down in a hole, losing my soul
    I'd like to fly
    But my wings have been so denied

    Bury me softly in this womb
    Oh I want to be inside of you
    I give this part of me for you
    Oh I want to be inside of you
    Sand rains down and here I sit
    Holding rare flowers
    Oh I want to be inside of you
    In a tomb... in bloom
    Oh I want to be inside...

    Down in a hole, feeling so small
    Down in a hole, losing my soul
    Down in a hole, feeling so small
    Down in a hole, out of control
    I'd like to fly
    But my wings have been so denied

    I Can't Make You Love Me - Tank

    I'll close my eyes
    Then I won't see
    The love you don't feel
    When you're holding me
    Mornin' will come
    And I'll do what's right
    Just give me till then
    To give up this fight
    And I will give up this fight

    'Cause I can't make you love me
    If you don't
    You can't make your heart feel
    Somethin it won't
    Here in the dark
    In these final hours
    I will lay down my heart
    And feel the power if you want
    No you won't

    What am i supposed to do when the best part of me was always you? ...im falling to pieces


  • Almost anything by Sufjan really...:

    Goldenrod and the 4H stone
    The things I brought you when I found out
    You had cancer of the bone

    Your father cried on the telephone
    And he drove his car into the Navy yard
    Just to prove that he was sorry

    In the morning, through the window shade
    When the light pressed up against your shoulderblade
    I could see what you were reading

    All the glory that the Lord has made
    And the complications you could do without
    When I kissed you on the mouth

    Tuesday night at the Bible study
    We lift our hands and pray over your body
    But nothing ever happens

    I remember at Michael's house
    In the living room when you kissed my neck
    And I almost touched your blouse

    In the morning at the top of the stairs
    When your father found out what we did that night
    And you told me you were scared

    All the glory when you ran outside
    With your shirt tucked in and your shoes untied
    And you told me not to follow you

    Sunday night when I cleaned the house
    I found the card where you wrote it out
    With the pictures of your mother

    On the floor at the great divide
    With my shirt tucked in and my shoes untied
    I am crying in the bathroom

    In the morning when you finally go
    And the nurse runs in with her head hung low
    And the cardinal hits the window

    In the morning in the winter shade
    On the first of March, on the holiday
    I thought I saw you breathing

    All the glory that the Lord has made
    And the complications when I see His face
    In the morning in the window

    All the glory when He took our place
    But He took my shoulders and He shook my face
    And He takes and He takes and He takes

  • I should have known better
    To see what I could see
    My black shroud
    Holding down my feelings
    A pillar for my enemies
    I should have wrote a letter
    And grieve what I happen to grieve
    My black shroud
    I never trust my feelings
    I waited for the remedy
    When I was three, three maybe four
    She left us at that video store
    Be my rest, be my fantasy
    Be my rest, be my fantasy
    I’m light as a feather
    I’m bright as the Oregon breeze
    My black shroud
    Frightened by my feelings
    I only wanna be a relief
    No, I’m not a go-getter
    The demon had a spell on me
    My black shroud
    Captain of my feelings
    The only thing I wanna believe
    When I was three, and free to explore
    I saw her face on the back of the door
    Be my rest, be my fantasy
    Be my rest, be my fantasy
    I should have known better
    Nothing can be changed
    The past is still the past
    The bridge to nowhere
    I should have wrote a letter
    Explaining what I feel, that empty feeling
    Don’t back down, concentrate on seeing
    The breakers in the bar, the neighbor’s greeting
    My brother had a daughter
    The beauty that she brings, illumination
    Don’t back down, there is nothing left
    The breakers in the bar, no reason to live
    I’m a fool in the fetter
    Rose of Aaron’s beard, where you can reach me
    Don’t back down, nothing can be changed
    Cantilever bridge, the drunken sailor
    My brother had a daughter
    The beauty that she brings, illumination
  • It's a classic :



    Hold up

    This is our last goodbye
    I hate to feel the love between us die
    But it's over
    Just hear this and then i'll go
    You gave me more to live for
    More than you'll ever know

    This is our last embrace
    Must I dream and always see your face
    Why can't we overcome this wall
    Well, maybe it's just because i didn't know you at all

    Kiss me, please kiss me
    But kiss me out of desire, babe, and not consolation
    You know it makes me so angry 'cause i know that in time
    I'll only make you cry, this is our last goodbye

    Did you say 'no, this can't happen to me,'
    And did you rush to the phone to call
    Was there a voice unkind in the back of your mind
    Saying maybe you didn't know him at all
    You didn't know him at all, oh, you didn't know

    Well, the bells out in the church tower chime
    Burning clues into this heart of mine
    Thinking so hard on her soft eyes and the memories
    Offer signs that it's over... it's over

    The last part (bolded) of the final verse (verse 3) is what chokes me up:
    [Verse 3 - G-Eazy:]
    In that first grade class they came and got me
    "Your mom's outside, say goodbye now to everybody"
    U-Haul was waiting with all of her things
    At least what she could pack
    In the time my dad's at work and before he came back
    Way to young to comprehend what was happening
    "Are we going to grandma's? When are we coming back again?"
    Little did I know that we were leaving him by himself
    And ten years would pass before Mom sees anybody else
    Just us, in middle school I ain't understand
    Who Melissa was and why she wasn't another man
    Biased and confused they try to explain but nobody can
    Wanted what I thought was normal, she had another plan
    Such is life, even if it took time for me to accept it
    No longer Dad now, but a woman with whom she slept with
    Or for the years when a secret was how she kept it
    I ain't get it, admittedly I was skeptic
    I came around, happiness I see's what you may have found
    And that's what's most important
    I don’t wanna see you breaking down
    I wanna see you smile, I don't wanna see you make a frown
    If she loves you, then that's all anybody needs maybe now
    By '05 things had gotten worse
    Moved to the basement, deep depressions a rotten curse
    Hiding in a dark space, her mind and her body hurts
    Becoming more reclusive and the pills should have been alerts
    So the worse it got, I became more and more afraid
    Until one night, I went into that room, on the floor she laid
    I shook her she was blue, her skin was cold, she wasn't breathing
    Screamed, "Melissa wake up" couldn't fathom that she was leaving
    Mom and Bro was running down, I screamed "somebody help"
    Try pumping her chest, CPR, but it didn’t help
    Toughest pill to swallow, but we lost, that’s forced reflection
    While in her life you made her happy, thank you for the blessing

    Love is a wild animal
    It breathes you it looks for you
    It nests upon broken hearts
    and goes hunting when there are kisses and candles
    It sucks tightly on your lips
    and digs tunnels through your ribs
    It drops softly like snow
    First it gets hot then cold in the end it hurts

    Amour Amour
    Everyone just wants to tame you
    Amour Amour in the end
    caught between your teeth

    Love is a wild animal
    It bites and scratches and kicks towards me
    It holds me tightly with a thousand arms
    and drags me into its love nest
    It devours me completely
    and retches me back out after many years
    It drops softly like snow
    First it gets hot then cold in the end it hurts

    Amour Amour
    Everyone just wants to tame you
    Amour Amour in the end
    caught between your teeth

    Love is a wild animal
    You fall into its trap
    It stares into your eyes
    Spellbound when its gaze hits you

    Please please give me poison

    I guess the Mayans wasn't lying
    2012 my world ended
    You used to say that I could see the future
    You was wrong cause you was in it
    And I was just with you the day before
    You said you loved me I said I loved you more
    And as much I wanna cower and bid the mic adieu
    And fall off a treetrunking tower tryna find you
    I gotta stay cause I remember that day
    I looked you in the face and told you nothing can stop me not even you
    Stick to the plan I'll meet you at our spot
    If reincarnation is true and we don't get too lost
    Even if you forget me and everything you left behind
    I never lied I love you in a place where there's no space and time
    I close my eyes and I can still hear you singing loud
    We never got to tell them who The Love Religion was about
    I ain't finna stage a cry in this rhyme

    Signed
    Sincerely yours
    I live to let you
    Shine
