Dissecting The Lyrics, Part 2

I’ll be gone for a while; I promise I’ll be back. Naks! Hehe. I just have to do something necessary and be back in a week. Don’t worry; I’ll visit your blogs if I’ll find an extra time. For now I want you to enjoy the following music. I copied the lyrics of each song that I like. I hope you’ll love them as well!

I've been learning to live without you now
But I miss you sometimes
The more I know, the less I understand
All the things I thought I knew, I'm learning them again
I've been tryin' to get down to the Heart of the Matter
But my will gets weak
And my thoughts seem to scatter
But I think it's about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don't love me anymore
-Heart of the Matter - India Arie, Testimony: Vol. 1, Life & Relationship

You never minded calling me a child
Well, I guess that's how I acted all the while
But You live through every tantrum, You see through every lie
Though they seem to be more common
I just wanted You to know why oh why
-Unforgetful You – Jars of Clay, If I Left the Zoo

So what do you do when somebody you're devoted to

Suddenly just stops loving you and it seems they haven't got a clue
Of the pain that rejection is putting you through
-Breakdown – Mariah Carey, Butterfly

If I told you things I did before
Told you how I used to be
Would you go along with someone like me?
If you knew my story word for word
Had all of my history
Would you go along with someone like me?
-Young Folks - Peter bjorn and John, Writer’s Block

Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back to the Milky Way
And tell me, did Venus blow your mind
Was it everything you wanted to find
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there
-Drops of Jupiter – Train, Drops of Jupiter

Counting all different ideas drifting away
Past and present, they don't matter, now the future's sorted out
Watch her moving in elliptical patterns
Think it's not what you say, what you say is way too complicated
For a minute thought I couldn't tell how to fall out

-1901 – Phoenix, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix


You don't have to put up a fight
You don't have to always be right
Let me take some of the punche
For you tonight
Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don't have to go in alone
And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
Sometimes you can't make it on your own
-Sometimes You Can't Make It on Your Own – U2, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
