lyrics that hit home...

I think we all know this one . . .



Still wondering what I'll be when I grow up.

Your mother's eyes look straight through me
Whenever we meet
Your father swears it'll never be
As long as he breaths

And how many times have they told you
That you're too young
How, how I've ached to hold you
But you're too young

If we don't buy what's right or wrong
Then we are sinners
We were never two to tag along
But we were always winners

And how many people, have told you
That you're too young
And how many jealous hands would love to hold you
`Cause you're too young

Well you're too young to love me
And I'm too old for you
At least that's what they tell us
It's in their book of rules
That you're too young, too young baby you're too young

We could try it for a while
But they'd get us in the long run
They say that you're too young, baby you're too young
Still wondering what I'll be when I grow up.

A few one-liners that really hit home for me:

"Is it by mistake or design that I feel so alone on a Friday night?" -Lana Del Rey, 'Born To Die'
This lyric encapsulates the age of 17 for me, where I would struggle with intense loneliness, but knowing that I was choosing to be alone, because conversation scared me.

"You were pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie." -Sarah McLachlan, 'Angel'
This lyric, the juxtaposition of images, and the theme, it's very hard-hitting. It even relates to the LDR lyric above.

"Forgive me for I did not know, 'cause I was just a boy, and you were so much more than any God could ever plan, more than a woman or a man."
-Hedwig & The Angry Inch, 'Wicked Little Town'
This speaks entirely for itself I feel.

Your words are like knives
They peel my skin and pierce my soul
Your body will burn tonight
Though your heart may still remain cold

And I will blame myself
And I will blame myself
For holding on to what I hoped would keep you by my side
I will blame myself

The Sheets are stained with
Memories of your soft kiss
Now this is all I have
Paper and pen to remember you with

And I will blame myself
And I will blame myself
For holding on to what I hoped would keep you by my side
I will blame myself
Can I have you

"So I guess that I'll curl up and die, too."

All the songs from WICKED hits home. I think anyone who has felt that they are a minority can relate to elphaba's lyrics.

But Rihanna's "We found love" music video really hit home.
The situation as well as the snippets of the Japanese night life totally made me feel like someone looked inside my brain and made it into a music video.

"Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over,
But had me believing it was always something that I'd done.
But I don't want to live that way,
Reading into every word you say.
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know."

Written for the late John Lennon. Best thing McCartney's ever done.

Neil Young...Old Man...this song always slayed me...for years now




Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.

Old man look at my life,
Twenty four
And there's so much more
Live alone in a paradise
That makes me think of two.

Love lost, such a cost,
Give me things
That don't get lost.
Like a coin that won't get tossed
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me
The whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
And you can tell that's true.

Lullabies, look in your eyes,
Run around the same old town.
Doesn't mean that much to me
To mean that much to you.

I've been first and last
Look at how the time goes past.
But I'm all alone at last.
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me
The whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
And you can tell that's true.

Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
