The Gathering – Leaves

I close your eyes with my mouth
Now you don’t see anything
But you feel my breath all over
I can feel you too

Although I don’t really know you
I don’t really care

Cry with me, make my day
Tomorrow all will be gone
All the sweetness and all the fun
No, I don’t wanna know…

Although I don’t really know you
I don’t really care

Now that you’re gone I don’t know
How to really feel inside
Baring the hope to see you again
I guess I never will

Now that I do really know you
Yes, I really care!

Spock’s Beard – Thoughts (Part II)

I thought I’d come to you and say
All the things I had on my mind
I thought it might be really great
To show you how I feel inside
Then I think … MAYBE NOT …

You wouldn’t speak to me
I would be left behind
We’d be through if you knew
All the things in my mind
I’d probably feel worse
You’d probably scream and shout
Scratch and curse or even worse
Quietly shut me out

I thought I’d come to you and say
Everything within my heart
I just can’t look the other way
And wait for us to grow apart
Then I think … WHAT’S THE POINT?

This might just go away
I think I’ll think some more
Either way I will pay
And suffer for evermore
You wouldn’t speak to me
I would be left behind
We’d be through if you knew
All the things in my mind

I thought I’d come to you and say
All the things I had on my mind …

Collective Soul – December

Why drink the water from my hand?
Contagious as you think I am
Just tilt my sun towards your domain.
Your cup runneth over again.

Don’t scream about
Don’t think aloud
Turn your head now baby
Just spit me out
Don’t worry about
Don’t speak of doubt
Turn your head now baby
Just spit me out

Why follow me to higher ground?
Lost as you swear I am.
Don’t throw away your basic needs,
Ambiance and vanity.

December promise you gave unto me
December whispers of treachery
December clouds are now covering me
December songs no longer I sing

Soul Asylum – Runaway Train

Call you up in the middle of the night
Like a firefly without a light
You were there like a slow torch burning
I was a key that could use a little turning

So tired that I couldn’t even sleep
So many secrets I couldn’t keep
Promised myself I wouldn’t weep
One more promise I couldn’t keep

It seems no one can help me now
I’m in too deep
There’s no way out
This time I have really led myself astray

Runaway train never going back
Wrong way on a one way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I’m neither here nor there

Can you help me remember how to smile
Make it somehow all seem worthwhile
How on earth did I get so jaded
Life’s mystery seems so faded

I can go where no one else can go
I know what no one else knows
Here I am just drownin’ in the rain
With a ticket for a runaway train

Everything is cut and dry
Day and night, earth and sky
Somehow I just don’t believe it

Bought a ticket for a runaway train
Like a madman laughin’ at the rain
Little out of touch, little insane
Just easier than dealing with the pain

Runaway train never comin’ back
Runaway train tearin’ up the track
Runaway train burnin’ in my veins
Runaway but it always seems the same

Anathema – Untouchable, Part 1

And I feel like I knew you before
And I guess that you can hear me through this song

And my love will never die
And my feelings will always shine

And I know that you just want me to belong to someone
And I guess that now I’ll just be moving on to someone

But my love will never die
And my feelings will always shine

I’ll never betray your trust
I’ll never betray your faith
I’ll never forsake your heart
I’ll never forget your face

There’s a feeling that I can’t describe
There’s a reason that I cannot hide
Because I’ve never seen a light that’s so bright
As the light that shines behind your eyes

I can see
This life
And what you mean to me

And when I dreamed
I dreamed of you
Then I wake
Tell me what could I do?

I had to let you go
To the setting sun
I had to let you go
And find a way back home

Riverside – The Depth of Self-Delusion

I could be foreign forever
To your otherland
I could be foreign forevermore
To your promiseland

One life was great
But another…
No, I don’t want to live on the edge
I won’t follow you
I found my own
I will stay

I could be foreign forever
To your hastenland
I could be foreign forevermore
To your neverland
One little brick then another
And I will build that wall anyway
You can find me there
Rested and calm
Without mask
This is where I will stay

Look around where we are
Who we are
What we always want

Twenty four Seven
Three sixty five
Sometimes little more
I was chasing your shadow
Not knowing I’d become your slave

I could be foreign forever
To your otherland
I could be foreign forevermore
To your promiseland

One life was great
But another…
No, I don’t want to live on the edge
I won’t follow you
I found my own
I will stay
I could stay forevermore

I’ve said a farewell
To never-ending smiles
I did not look good in red
From my place
I can finally see
How much of this shade
I called myself was me
And what was left behind
