    Default I wish I wrote this

    Some things need no explanation. Yes, I get depressed, never do know why, just learn to deal with it. Sometimes uplifting things help me. There are the right times to reach out and reach up as they say, and I always know when, or sometimes I need a reminder. This man can write! And don't get the wrong idea, it's a song, and while I like to wallow in depression, and I like uplifting music, I am and do just fine.

    Cause the fact is, ain't nothing wrong for asking for help when necessary, and sure is good to let the man above that you haven't forgotten about him, because I know he hasn't forgotten about me, or I would have failed a long time back!

    This is Matthew West if anyone has ever listened to his music before. Yeah, religious, but cool music nonetheless.

    ---

    You must
    You must think I'm strong
    To give me what I'm going through
    Well, forgive me

    Forgive me if I'm wrong
    But this looks like more than I can do
    On my own

    I know I'm not strong enough to be
    everything that I'm supposed to be
    I give up
    I'm not strong enough

    Hands of mercy won't you cover me
    Lord right now I'm asking you to be
    Strong enough
    Strong enough

    For the both of us
    Well, maybe
    Maybe that's the point

    To reach the point of giving up
    Cause when I'm finally
    Finally at rock bottom

    Well, that's when I start looking up
    And reaching out
    I know I'm not strong enough to be
    Everything that I'm supposed to be

    I give up
    I'm not strong enough
    Hands of mercy won't you cover me
    Lord right now I'm asking you to be

    Strong enough
    Strong enough
    Cause I'm broken
    Down to nothing
    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.

    Rainbow and Street Of Dreams

    I heard the sound of voices in the night
    Spellbound there was someone calling
    I looked around no one was in sight
    Pulled down and I kept on falling

    I've seen this place before
    And you were standing by my side
    I've seen your face before tonight
    Maybe I just see what I want it to be
    I know it's a mystery

    Do you remember me
    On a street of dreams
    Running through my memory
    On the street of dreams

    There you stood a distant memory
    So good like we never parted
    Said to myself I knew you'd set me free
    And here we are right back where we started

    Something's come over me
    And I don't know what to feel
    Maybe this fantasy is real
    Now I know I see what I want it to be
    But it's still a mystery

    Do you remember me
    On the street of dreams
    Running through my memory
    On the street of dreams
    You are in every face I see
    On the street of dreams

    Something's come over me
    And I don't know what to feel
    Maybe this fantasy is real
    Now I know I see what I want it to be
    But it's still a mystery

    Do you remember me
    On the street of dreams
    Running through my memory
    On the street of dreams
    On the street of dreams

    I know you have always been
    On the street of dreams
    Will we ever meet again my friend
    On the street of dreams
    Do you know just what it mend to be
    On the street of dreams

    Never know just who you'll see do ya
    On the street of dreams
    You can be who you want to be, oh yeah
    On the street of dreams
    I can hear you calling me
    On the street of dreams

    Music is poetry. It speaks to the soul.
    “The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults.” De Tocqueville

    Yup, and I kinda knew that, but never truly appreciated that.

    Like I said in another thread. I listened to music my whole life, always loved music so it was always playing. I listen to music now, from the early 80's til today, and SO much music and the lyrics I hear, I can close my eyes, and it brings me back to that time when it was out back in the 80's or 90's, it kinda sends me back in time, even if for just a moment as I sit with my eyes closed and headphones on in a dark room. It speaks to the soul. It's soothing and relieving. It's calming for me too. And makes my mind stay busy.

    One of my favorite favorite favorite songs!!! Nice easy soft listening. But you need the entire album, as it's a story, and this is the culmination of the story when "Nicholas" is woken from being hypnotized and telling this story you just heard, which changed his life now.


    Dream Theater - The Spirit Carries On

    Where did we come from?
    Why are we here?
    Where do we go when we die?
    What lies beyond
    And what lay before?
    Is anything certain in life?

    They say, "Life is too short"
    "The here and the now"
    And "You're only given one shot"
    But could there be more
    Have I lived before
    Or could this be all that we've got?

    If I die tomorrow
    I'd be all right
    Because I believe
    That after we're gone
    The spirit carries on

    I used to be frightened of dying
    I used to think death was the end
    But that was before
    I'm not scared anymore
    I know that my soul will transcend

    I may never find all the answers
    I may never understand why
    I may never prove what I know to be true
    But I know that I still have to try
    If I die tomorrow

    I'd be all right
    Because I believe
    That after we're gone
    The spirit carries on
    Move on, be brave

    Don't weep at my grave
    Because I am no longer here
    But please never let
    Your memory of me disappear
    Safe in the light that surrounds me

    Free of the fear and the pain
    My questioning mind
    Has helped me to find
    The meaning in my life again
    Victoria's real
    I finally feel
    At peace with the girl in my dreams
    And now that I'm here
    It's perfectly clear
    I found out what all of this means
    If I die tomorrow
    I'd be all right
    Because I believe
    That after we're gone
    The spirit carries on

    Songwriters: Deongelo Holmes / Eric Jackson / Michael Crooms / Michael Antoine Crooms / Warren Mathis / Warren Anderson Mathis
    “… the greatest detractor from high performance is fear: fear that you are not prepared, fear that you are in over your head, fear that you are not worthy, and ultimately, fear of failure. If you can eliminate that fear—not through arrogance or just wishing difficulties away, but through hard work and preparation—you will put yourself in an incredibly powerful position to take on the challenges you face" - Pete Carroll.
