Someone sent me a song a few days ago that really spoke to me. And then i got to thinking about how little snippets of songs sometimes speak to you depending on where you are in life. So I thought it might be cool for readers to share "Lyrics to Live By". I was just listening to this song which gave me the idea so I´ll start it off with this. There is a lot of wisdom in this song IMO but this part strikes me the most

" the less I seek my source for some definitive, the closer I am to fine."

Hahaha!  I love it!!  Okay, I think I probably topped out on that first one I posted, but me thinks you might like this one.  Cruel Intentions came on a few weeks back and I thought, damn, I love that song, it never gets old.  



Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life
Trying to make ends meet, you're a slave to the money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, yeah
No change, I can't change, I can't change, I can't change,
but I'm here in my mold , I am here in my mold
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no

Well, I've never prayed,
But tonight I'm on my knees, yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind , I feel free now
But the airwaves are clean and there's nobody singing to me now

No change, I can't change, I can't change, I can't change,
but I'm here in my mold , I am here with my mold
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no

(Well have you ever been down?)
(I can't change, I can't change...)
(Ooooohhhhh...)

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life
Trying to make ends meet, trying to find some money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, yeah
You know I can't change, I can't change, I can't change,
but I'm here in my mold, I am here in my mold
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I can't change my mold, no,no,no,no,no
I can't change my mold, no,no,no,no,no
I can't change my mold, no,no,no,no,no

(It justs sex and violence melody and silence)
(It justs sex and violence melody and silence)
(I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)
(It justs sex and violence melody and silence)
(I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)
(Been down)
(Ever been down)
(Ever been down)(Lalalalalalaaaaaaaa...)
(Ever been down)
(Ever been down)
(Have you ever been down?)
(Have you ever been down?)
(Have you ever been down?)

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”

I know people tend to think of industrial music as all death and gloom, but this one song in particular has a really positive message, I think. :)


Assemblage 23 - Ground

Quote

Be still
Though chaos rains around you now
Only so much rain can fall at once
Breathe in
And let the air envelope you
And slow but sure, serenity will come

Close your eyes
Try to breathe
Feel the ground beneath your feet
It's still there
The world still turns around

Stand up
Though circumstance has knocked you down
There is nothing gained by staying within it's reach

Take strength
In every failure you endure
Our mistakes have many lessons they can teach

Close your eyes
Try to breathe
Feel the ground beneath your feet
It's still there
The world still turns around

Destroy
These walls you've built around yourself
You can't take another step until they're gone

Move out
No use in dwelling in the past
Bid farewell to all your fears and carry on

Close your eyes
Try to breathe
Feel the ground beneath your feet
It's still there
The world still turns around

Thanks for the posts guys. They´re both great but ya kinda cheated :unsure2: . I think I wasn´t clear enough in my OP. You have to pick out just a little snippet of a song ( a line or two) that you feel is a good way to look at / approach life.  :yes:

This song has always meant a lot to me, especially this verse:

"Well my ship's been split to splinters and it's sinking fast
I'm drowning in the poison, got no future, got no past
But my heart is not weary, it's light and it's free
I've got nothing but affection for all those who sailed with me"

You gotta make some stances and take some chances
You gotta laugh and love and take all life has to give
You gotta live and learn so you can learn to live"

I'm not listening, not anymore
The more I learn, the more I ignore
I'm not listening, not anymore
The more I hear, the more I ignore
I'm not listening, not anymore, No

Cause You gotta be bigger, be faster, be stronger
If your gonna survive any longer
In this lifetime, it better be the right time
The first time might be your last time
Am I a failure if I got nothing to lose
No, I'm not a failure, I got something to prove

[Chorus:]
I'm not listening, not anymore
The more I learn, the more I ignore
I'm not listening, not anymore
The more I hear, the more I ignore, the more I ignore

Cause I've lost my innocence
And I'm a stranger, A life changer
I'm a man thats not afraid of danger
I walk my own path, and blaze my own trail
Because I'm not afraid to derail
I won't get in line or be a middle man
So **** you I'll make my own plan
And I got respect and I don't neglect
The people that I really care to protect
Am I a failure if I got nothing to lose
No, I'm not a failure, I got something to prove

[Chorus]

I told you before, wont listen no more
I told you before, lets settle the score
I told you before, wont listen no more
I told you before, lets settle the score

If not me then who?
If not now then when?
If not me then who?
If not now then when?

[Chorus]

I told you before, wont listen no more
I told you before, lets settle the score
I told you before, wont listen no more
I told you before, lets settle the score

Set it off right now
Blow it up, set it off
**** it up, check it out
Blow it up, Blow it up right now
