good song. so emo... [09 May 2004|09:16am]

Rapid Hope Loss
You called to say you wanted out
Well, I can't say I blame you now
Sometimes you've got to fold vefore you're found out
Well thanks for waiting this long to show yourself
'Cause now that I can see you
I don't think you're worth a second glance

So much for all the promises you made, they served you well
Now you're gone and they're wasted on me
So much for your endearing sense of charm, it served you well
Now it's just worn and wasted on me

This is a song Rivers Cuomo wrote about two of his good friends. They went to a Weezer concert and were on their way to another one in another town. On the way they were in a car accident and were killed. I really like this song because it's simple, but it's sad. I have the weezer dvd and watching Rivers sing this almost made me cry. So here are the lyrics........

Mykel and Carli by Weezer:

Back in Wilson High
I had two best friends
They lived down the block
Where Eagle Ct. ends
One she cared for my bones
Fed me ice-cream cones
One she cared for my happiness
And wouldn't leave me alone
Back in Wilson High
Said I had these two best friends
Till the school bus came
and took my friends away
Now I'm left alone at home
To sit and think all day
Hear you me, Mykel
Hear you me, Carli
They gave me a hat
the hat was awful rad
wore it everyday
Made my teacher mad
She tore it off my head
Now my head's well read
My head gets cold at night sometimes
But I can't be misled.

"The General" by Dispatch [18 Apr 2004|08:09pm]

in_my_life_88
[ mood | content ]

there was a decorated general with
a heart of gold, that likened him to
all the stories he told
of past battles, won and lost, and
legends of old a seasoned veteran in
his own time

on the battlefield, he gained
respectful fame with many metals
of bravery and stripes to his name
he grew a beard as soon as he could
to cover the scars on his face
and always urged his men on

but on the eve of a great battle
with the infantry in dream
the old general tossed in his sleep
and wrestled with its meaning
he awoke from the night
just to tell what he had seen
and walked slowly out of his tent

all the men held tall with their
chests in the air, with courage in
their blood and a fire in their stare
it was a grey morning and they all
wondered how they would fare
till the old general told them to go home

I have seen the others
and I have discovered
that this fight is not worth fighting
I have seen their mothers
and I will no other
to follow me where I'm going

Take a shower, shine your shoes
you got no time to lose
you are young men you must be living
go now you are forgiven

but the men stood fast with their
guns on their shoulders not knowing
what to do with the contradicting orders
the general said he would do his own
duty bout would not extend it not further
the men could go as they pleased

not a man moved, their eyes glazed
straight ahead till one by one they
stepped back and not a word was said
and the old general was left with his
own words echoing in his head
he then prepared to fight


go now you are forgiven

beatles-and i love her [15 Apr 2004|08:23pm]

tlpflower
I give her all my love
That's all I do
And if you saw my love
You'd love her too
I love her

She gives me everything
And tenderly
The kiss my lover brings
She brings to me
And I love her

A love like ours
Could never die
As long as I
Have you near me

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
will never die
And I love her

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
will never die
And I love her, ooh

Dashboard Confessional-a sharp hint of new tears [31 Mar 2004|06:48pm]

in_my_life_88
i love these lyrics so much

On the way home, this car hears my confessions.
I think tonight I'll take the long way.
In this weather, the wind outside is biting.
It's left me feeling tired and exposed.
You've been asking me to bleed.
It seems these kinds of questions, they come too easy to you now.
And your lack of shame comes naturally.
I should not be surprised. I should have seen it sooner.

Expect me to apologize for things that you've done wrong.
But you're inciting others.
You're owning up to nothing and I wish that I was gone,
'cause you're not going anywhere.

And this damp air it's fighting my defroster.
My sighs they ring victorious and fog this tinted glass.
And it's clouded and so is my head.
The hint of these new tears are sharp I try to choke them back.
But it's useless. I am useless against them.
They are beating me with ease.

On the way home this car hears my confessions.
I think tonight I'll take the long way.

Expect me to apologize for things that you've done wrong.
While you're inciting others.
You're owning up to nothing and I wish that I was gone,
'Cause you're not going anywhere.

On the way home this car hears my confessions.
I think tonight I'll take the long way.

The Beatles-"We Can Work It Out" [22 Mar 2004|06:22pm]

in_my_life_88
Try to see it my way,
Do I have to keep on talking till I can't go on?
While you see it your way,
Run the risk of knowing that our love may soon be gone.

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Think of what you're saying.
You can get it wrong and still you think that it's alright.
Think of what I'm saying,
We can work it out and get it straight, or say good night.

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Life is very short, and there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend.
I have always thought that it's a crime,
So I will ask you once again.

Try to see it my way,
Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong.
While you see it your way
There's a chance that we may fall apart before too long.

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Life is very short, and there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend.
I have always thought that it's a crime,
So I will ask you once again.

Try to see it my way,
Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong.
While you see it your way
There's a chance that we may fall apart before too long.
We can work it out,
We can work it out.

i think i love you [20 Mar 2004|01:47pm]

tlpflower
I'm sleeping
And right in the middle of a good dream
Then all at once I wake up
From something that keeps knocking at my brain
Before I go insane
I hold my pillow to my head
And spring up in my bed
Screaming out the words I dread ....
"I think I love you!" (I think I love you)

This morning, I woke up with this feeling
I didn't know how to deal with
And so I just decided to myself
I'd hide it to myself
And never talk about it
And did not go and shout it
When you walked into the room .....
"I think I love you!" (I think I love you)

I think I love you
So what am I so afraid of?
I'm afraid that I'm not sure of
A love there is no cure for
I think I love you
Isn't that what life is made of?
Though it worries me to say
I've never felt this way

Believe me
You really don't have to worry
I only want to make you happy
And if you say
Hey, go away, I will
But I think better still
I'd better stay around and love you
Do you think I have a case?
Let me ask you to your face
Do you think you love me?

I think I love you
So what am I so afraid of?
I'm afraid that I'm not sure of
A love there is no cure for
I think I love you
Isn't that what life is made of?
Though it worries me to say
I've never felt this way

I don't know what I'm up against
I don't know what it's all about
I've go so much to think about
Hey!I think I love you!
So what am I so afraid of?
I'm afraid that I'm not sure of
A love there is no cure for
I think I love you
Isn't that what life is made of?
Though it worries me to say
I've never felt this way

I think I love you!
So what am I so afraid of?
I'm afraid that I'm not sure of
A love there is no cure for
I think I love you
Isn't that what life is made of?
Though it worries me to say
I've never felt this way

Anti-Flag: "Anti-violent" [14 Mar 2004|06:56pm]

in_my_life_88
100 kids just having fun
Until you come
Your steroid arms
and skinny head

You cut your writs
slash your face
call it performance art
Trying to be cool,
You're ignorant

Anti Violent

You start a fight
Drink Beer all night
And molest little girls

Tell everyone there
that you're psycho
psy so psy psycho

Well I don't think
you're psycho
you're just
another show off
Go and shoot up
one, one last time

Anti Violent

We don't need
your war

Anti Violent

REVENGE OF THE CRYPT KEEPER [14 Mar 2004|11:55am]

in_my_life_88
Who ordered all this nauseating cheer
I've had Christmas up to here
I'm mad and I'm not gonna take it anymore
So here's the little plot I've got in store

Up on the roof with nails and saws
I'll build a trap for Santa Claus
And when he lands in that hokey slay
I'll make this Christmas crud go away

Ho Ho Ho You'd better know
I've got a way to make it so
Up on the housetop click, click, click
Throw a big bag over old Saint Nick

Down from the roof top out in back
Santa, Reindeer, sleigh and pack
Watch his Yuletide spirits droop
With juggles locked in the chicken coop

Ho Ho Ho You've gotta know
Fatso's tied up head to toe
This little plan will work because
I'm gonna kidnap Santa Claus

All of you kiddies are out of luck
This year's Christmas one dead duck
Let all the little brats scream and shout
I ain't never letting Fatso out

Ho Ho Ho won't let him go
Not for even tons of dough
I can't dream of a scene so nice
When I go and put Fuzzy Face on ice

Bye Bye to sleigh bells that gave me grief
Bye bye to caroling what a relief
Best of all that blasted cheer
Won't be annoying me again next year

Ho Ho Ho now you know
Dear old Santa has to go
Without Fatso it's understood
Christmas is history and gone for good

The Beatles-In my life [12 Mar 2004|09:01pm]

in_my_life_88
I'll be posting a lot of beatles, weezer, radiohead and the pixies lyrics. beware.

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends
I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
there is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more
