ďYouíre Wondering NowĒ by the Specials

ďYou're wondering now
What to do
Now you know this is the end
You're wondering how
You will pay
For the way you did me in

Curtain has fallen
Now you're on your own
I won't return
Forever you will wait

You're wondering now
What to do
Now you know this is the endĒ

ETA: Lest there be any confusion, Iím hearing this as directed TO a betrayer. Not words I could sing.

The National "About Today"

I first heard this song a few weeks after D-Day. It stopped me dead in my tracks. I instantly thought "this is what he must feel." I replayed it ten times just crying in front of my computer. I put it on my playlist and listen to it about every day.

[Verse 1]
Today
You were far away
And I
Didn't ask you "Why?"
What could I say?
I was far away
You just walked away
And I just watched you
What could I say?

[Chorus]
How close am I
To losing you?

[Verse 2]
Tonight
You just close your eyes
And I just watch you
Slip away

[Chorus]
How close am I
To losing you?

[Verse 3]
Hey
Are you awake?
Yeah, I'm right here
Well, can I ask you
About today?

"Better Than I Used To Be" by Tim McGraw

I know how to hold a grudge
I can send a bridge up in smoke
And I can't count the people I've let down, the hearts I've broke
You ain't gotta dig too deep
If you wanna find some dirt on me
I'm learning who you've been
Ain't who you've got to be
It's gonna be an uphill climb
Aww honey I won't lie

I ain't no angel
I still got a few more dances with the devil
Iím cleaning up my act little by little
Iím getting there
I can finally stand the man in the mirror I see
I ainít as good as Iím gonna get
But Iím better than I used to be

Iíve pinned a lot of demons to the ground
Iíve got a few old habits left
But thereís still one or two I might need you to help me get
Standing in the rain so long has left me with a little rust
But put some faith in me
And someday youíll see
Thereís a diamond under all this dust

I ain't no angel
I still got a few more dances with the devil
Iím cleaning up my act little by little
Iím getting there
I can finally stand the man in the mirror I see
I ainít as good as Iím gonna get
But Iím better than I used to be

I ain't no angel
I still got a few more dances with the devil
But Iím cleaning up my act little by little
Iím getting there
I can finally stand the man in the mirror I see
I ainít as good as Iím gonna get
But Iím better than I used to be

For the other half of the sky

Woman, I can hardly express
My mixed emotions at my thoughtlessness
After all I'm forever in your debt

And woman, I will try express
My inner feeling and thankfulness
For showing me the meaning of success

Woman, I know you understand
The little child inside the man
Please remember my life is in your hands

And woman, hold me close to your heart
However distant don't keep us apart
After all it is written in the stars

Woman, please let me explain
I never meant to cause you sorrow or pain
So let me tell you again and again and again

I love you (yeah, yeah) now and forever
I love you (yeah, yeah) now and forever
I love you (yeah, yeah) now and forever
I love you (yeah, yeah) now and forever

ETA I can barely get through a trip to the market as they tend to play fairly maudlin and emotional tracks for some reason.

MrRiver and I had a get together a couple of years ago with friends, some drinking, just having a good time, when this song came across the playlist. We looked across the room at each other, smiled and raised our glasses, it was like our own private moment to say
"we got this." Now we feel that it is our secret song.

Here's to Us - Halestorm

We could just go home right now
Or maybe we could stick around
For just one more drink, oh yeah
Get another bottle out
Lets shoot the shit
Sit back down
For just one more drink, oh yeah
Here's to us, here's to love
All the times that we fucked up
Here's to you, fill the glass
'Cause the last few days have kicked my ass
So lets give 'em hell
Wish everybody well, here's to us, here's to us
Stuck it out this far together
Put our dreams through the shredder
Let's toast 'cause things got better
And everything could change like that
And all these years go by so fast
But nothing lasts forever
Here's to us, here's to love
All the times, that we messed up
Here's to you, fill the glass
'Cause the last few nights have kicked my ass
If they give ya hell
Tell em to go fuck themselves, here's to us, here's to us
Here's to all that we kissed
And to all that we missed
To the biggest mistakes
That we just wouldn't trade
To us breaking up
Without us breaking down
To whatever's comin' our way
Here's to us, here's to love
All the times that we fucked up
Here's to you, fill the glass
'Cause the last few days have kicked my ass
So lets give 'em hell
Wish everybody well
Here's to us, here's to love
All the times, that we messed up
Here's to you, fill the glass
'Cause the last few nights have kicked my ass
If they give ya hell
Tell em to go fuck themselves, here's to us, here's to us (Go fuck themselves)
Here's to us, here's to us
Here's to us, here's to us
Here's to us, here's to love
Here's to us, wish everybody well
Here's to us, here's to love
Here's to us, here's to us

Little Big Town - "Sugar Coat"

***You must watch the video***

Strange posting this in the wayward forum but it tells a great story. A bit old fashioned in its approach but I think everyone can recognize the pain.

I turn the bathroom light on
To take my makeup off
Look at myself in the eye
And wonder why I wear it anyway
Another car drives by
I wonder where you are
The kids are all in bed
And everything but you is in its place
From the street view looking in
It's pretty as a picture
A home sweet home
Sometimes I wish I liked drinking
Sometimes I wish I liked pills
Wish I could sleep with a stranger
But someone like me never will
Sometimes I hardly can stand it
I just smile with a lump in my throat
Sometimes I wish I could bear it
Didn't have to wear this sugar coat
Passed down from my mom
She wore it so well
She'd rest it on my shoulders
Say it's colder out there than you think
Would I recognize myself
Would anybody else
If I took the damn thing off and burned it up
Sometimes I wish I liked drinking
Sometimes I wish I liked pills
Wish I could sleep with a stranger
But someone like me never will
Sometimes I hardly can stand it
I just smile with a lump in my throat
Sometimes I wish I could bear it
Didn't have to wear this sugar coat
Oh, this damn sugar coat
And one of these nights I'll meet you in the driveway
And tell you to go to hell
Go to hell
Sometimes I wish I liked drinking
Sometimes I wish I liked pills
Wish I could sleep with a stranger
But someone like me never will
Sometimes I hardly can stand it
I just smile with a lump in my throat
Sometimes I wish I could bear it
Didn't have to wear this sugar coat
This damn sugar coat
Oh, this sugar coat
This damn sugar coat

Sam Smith ďIím not the Only OneĒ
You and me we made a vow
For better or for worse
I can't believe you let me down
But the proof is in the way it hurts
For months on end I've had my doubts
Denying every tear
I wish this would be over now
But I know that I still need you here
You say I'm crazy
'Cause you don't think I know what you've done
But when you call me baby
I know I'm not the only one
You've been so unavailable
Now sadly I know why
Your heart is unobtainable
Even though lord knows you have mine
You say I'm crazy
'Cause you don't think I know what you've done
But when you call me baby
I know I'm not the only one
I have loved you for many years
Maybe I am just not enough
You've made me realize my deepest fear
By lying and tearing us up
You say I'm crazy
'Cause you don't think I know what you've done
But when you call me baby
I know I'm not the only one

I have a couple, but this one really spoke to me after dday. Ironic, I really hated this song when it came out, the radio played it to death.

Now, I'm Mr. Brightside...

Coming out of my cage
And I've been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this?
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke
And she's taking a drag
Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it's all in my head
But she's touching his chest now
He takes off her dress now
Let me go
And I just can't look, it's killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
'Cause I'm Mr. Brightside

I'm coming out of my cage
And I've been doing just fine

Looking for a Good Time
David Nail

If heavens where your soul gets fed
The your hell is an empty bed
But it's never hard to keep it full
There ain't too many arms you have to pull
'Cause you think that you're getting love
But they know they're just getting some
And deep inside you know it's true
But you don't dare believe it, do you?
Do you?

You just lay it down like a quarter on the railroad track
If it sticks to the wheel you're never gonna get it back
It won't do you no good to change your mind
'Cause it already feel off somewhere down the line
Now all the boys call you when they're looking for a good time
Looking for a good time

These days they call it casual
Well, that just means they'll leave when they get full
Yeah, they say you're cool 'cause you don't care
But in the morning you always cry if they're not there
And you think if they could only see you now
But I swear they'd do it anyhow
'Cause they'll say anything to play the part
But they don't give a damn about your heart
Your heart

You say, "I love you" and you swear you didn't mean it
'Cause you both agree this would go nowhere
Someday I hope that you get tired
Of waking up with the thieves and liars
Maybe you'll go searching for the truth
The kind that ain't written on a phone booth, no, no

TiredSoul2017 posted 2/3/2020 15:51 PM

Love the way you lie by Rihanna and Eminem

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that's alright, because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that's alright, because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I can't tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now there's a steel knife, in my windpipe
I can't breathe, but I still fight, while I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right, it's like I'm in flight
High off of love drunk from my hate
It's like I'm huffing paint and I love it the more that I suffer
I suffocate and right before I'm about to drown
She resuscitates me, she fucking hates me,
And I love it, wait
Where you going, I'm leaving you
No you ain't, come back
We're running right back, here we go again
It's so insane 'cause when it's going good, it's going great
I'm Superman, with the wind at his back, she's Lois Lane
But when it's bad, it's awful
I feel so ashamed, I snapped, who's that dude
I don't even know his name, I laid hands on her
I'll never stoop so low again, I guess I don't know my own strength
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that's alright, because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that's alright, because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
You ever love somebody so much
You can barely breathe, when you're with them, you meet
And neither one of you, even know what hit 'em,
Got that warm fuzzy feeling, yeah them chills, used to get 'em
Now you're getting fucking sick, of looking at 'em
You swore you've never hit 'em, never do nothing to hurt 'em,
Now you're in each others face,
Spewing venom, and these words, when you spit 'em
You push, pull each other's hair, scratch, claw, bit 'em,
Throw 'em down, pin 'em, so lost in the moments, when you're in 'em
It's the rage that's the culprit, it controls you both
So they say it's best, to go your separate ways,
Guess that they don't know ya 'cause today, that was yesterday
Yesterday is over, it's a different day
Sound like broken records, playin' over, but you promised her
Next time you'll show restraint
You don't get another chance,
Life is no Nintendo game, but you lied again
Now you get to watch her leave,
Out the window, guess that's why they call it window pane
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that's alright, because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that's alright, because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
Now I know we said things, did things
That we didn't mean and we fall back into the same patterns
Same routine, but your temper's just as bad, as mine is
You're the same as me, but when it comes to love, you're just as blinded
Baby please come back, it wasn't you,
Baby it was me, maybe our relationship isn't as crazy as it seems
Maybe that's what happens When a tornado meets a volcano
All I know is I love you too much, to walk away now
Come inside, pick up your bags off the sidewalk
Don't you hear sincerity, in my voice when I talk,
Told you this is my fault, look me in the eyeball
Next time I'm pissed, I'll aim my fist at the dry wall
Next time, there will be no next time
I apologize even though I know it's lies
I'm tired of the games, I just want her back, I know I'm a liar
If she ever tries to fucking leave again
I'm a tie her to the bed and set this house on fire
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that's alright, because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that's alright, because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

"All you had to was stay" by Taylor Swift

People like you always want back the love they gave away
And people like me wanna believe you when you say you've changed
The more I think about it now the less I know
All I know is that you drove us off the road
All you had to do was stay
Had me in the palm of your hand
Then, why'd you had to go and lock me out when I let you in
now you say you want it
Back now that it's just too late
Well could've been easy
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
Here you are now, calling me up, but I don't know what to say
I've been picking up the pieces of the mess you made
People like you always want back the love they pushed aside
But people like me are gone forever when you say goodbye
all you had to do was stay
Had me in the palm of your hand
Then, why'd you had to go and lock me out when I let you in
now you say you want it
Back now that it's just too late
Well could've been easy
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay (stay, stay, stay)
Let me remind you this was what you wanted (oh oh oh)
You ended it
You were all I wanted (oh oh oh)
But not like this
Not like this
Not like this
Oh, all you had to do was stay
Hey, all you had to do was stay
Had me in the palm of your hand
Then, why'd you had to go and lock me out when I let you in
now you say you want it
Back now that it's just too late
Well could've been easy
All you had to do was stay
Hey, all you had to do was stay
Had me in the palm of your hand
Then, why'd you had to go and lock me out when I let you in
now you say you want it
Back now that it's just too late
Well could've been easy (all you had to do was stay)
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay (oh)
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay (ooh)

If Weíre Honest
by Francesca Battistelli

Truth is harder than a lie
The dark seems safer than the light
And everyone has a heart that loves to hide
I'm a mess and so are you
We've built walls nobody can get through
Yeah, it may be hard,
but the best thing we could ever do,
ever do...

Is bring your brokenness, and I'll bring mine
'Cause love can heal what hurt divides
And mercy's waiting on the other side
If we're honest
If we're honest

Don't pretend to be something that you're not
Living life afraid of getting caught
There is freedom found when we lay
Our secrets down at the cross,
at the cross

So bring your brokenness, and I'll bring mine
'Cause love can heal what hurt divides
And mercy's waiting on the other side
If we're honest
If we're honest

It would change our lives
It would set us free
It's what we need to be

So bring your brokenness and I'll bring mine
'Cause love can heal what hurt divides
And mercy's waiting on the other side
If we're honest
If we're honest
If we're honest

Tiredsoul that would've been my choice. This spoke to to me in volumes too...for a while. But gave up...eventually.

You tell all the boys no
Makes you feel good yeah
I know you're out of my league
But that won't scare me away oh no
You've carried on so long
You couldn't stop if you tried it
You've built your wall so high
That no one could climb it
But I'm gonna try
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful
Would you let me see beneath your perfect
Take it off now girl, take it off now girl
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight
You let all the girls go
Makes you feel good, don't it?
Behind your Broadway show
I heard a voice say please don't hurt me
You've carried on so long
You couldn't stop if you tried it
You've built your wall so high
That no one could climb it
But I'm gonna try
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful
Would you let meÖ

"One Night" by Picture This

Late night texts to lyrics from songs
Trying your best to right your wrongs
I know that you're hoping
I'll be a little upset, a little bit drunk
That I'm not lying in bed next to someone

I know that you're wondering
How did we end up here, feels like were strangers
Remember when it used to feel like we were dangerous

Maybe you shouldn't have gone there that night
Maybe you should have told a little less lies
Maybe you shouldn't have gone and ruined my life
For one night, for one night
Maybe you shouldn't have took your lips off mine
Put them on his and thought that you'd be fine
Maybe you shouldn't have gone and ruined my life
For one night, for one night.

it's on the radio now....I've had to start listening to news talk....it's been 2 years since dday...we have been doing great. But what he did, ...it's always there....I forgave him. but it's a scar. healed, but still a Shiney piece of flesh that has meaning.....

JBWD posted 2/9/2020 17:34 PM

Ugh. Related topic- Heard one of my favorite, most inspiring and emotional songs of my adult life- ďHeroesĒ by David Bowie.

Then got curious about the exact meaning behind it, and found this:

ďI always said it was a couple of lovers by the Wall that prompted the idea for Heroes,Ē Bowie told Classic Rock in 2015. ďActually, it was [Bowie producer] Tony Visconti and his girlfriend. Tony was married at the time, so I couldnít talk about it. But I can now say that the lovers were Tony and a German girl [Antonia Maass] that heíd met while we were in Berlin. I think possibly his marriage was in the last few months. And it was very touching because I could see that Tony was very much in love with this girl, and it was that relationship which sort of motivated the song.Ē

Barf. Donít know if I can hear it again.

LifeDestroyer posted 2/13/2020 07:24 AM

I never thought a song from a Disney movie would have so much meaning in my life, but when I heard this from Frozen 2, wow. I was sitting in the theater with my daughter watching this cute movie and Bam! It was like tunnel vision just focusing on each word Anna sung.

"The Next Right Thing"

I've seen dark before, but not like this
This is cold, this is empty, this is numb
The life I knew is over, the lights are out
Hello, darkness, I'm ready to succumb
I follow you around, I always have
But you've gone to a place I cannot find
This grief has a gravity, it pulls me down
But a tiny voice whispers in my mind
You are lost, hope is gone
But you must go on
And do the next right thing
Can there be a day beyond this night?
I don't know anymore what is true
I can't find my direction, I'm all alone
The only star that guided me was you
How to rise from the floor?
But it's not you I'm rising for
Just do the next right thing
Take a step, step again
It is all that I can to do
The next right thing
I won't look too far ahead
It's too much for me to take
But break it down to this next breath, this next step
This next choice is one that I can make
So I'll walk through this night
Stumbling blindly toward the light
And do the next right thing
And, with it done, what comes then?
When it's clear that everything will never be the same again
Then I'll make the choice to hear that voice
And do the next right thing

Just Give Me A Reason by Pink and FUN

Right from the start
You were a thief, you stole my heart
And I your willing victim
I let you see the parts of me, that weren't all that pretty
And with every touch you fixed them
Now you've been talking in your sleep oh oh
Things you never say to me oh oh
Tell me that you've had enough
Of our love, our love
Just give me a reason, just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent, and we can learn to love again
It's in the stars, it's been written in the scars on our hearts
We're not broken just bent, and we can learn to love again
I'm sorry I don't understand
Where all of this is coming from
I thought that we were fine (Oh we had everything)
Your head is running wild again
My dear we still have everythin'
And it's all in your mind (Yeah but this is happenin')
You've been havin' real bad dreams oh oh
You used to lie so close to me oh oh
There's nothing more than empty sheets between our love, our love
Oh our love, our love
Just give me a reason, just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent and we can learn to love again
I never stop, you're still written in the scars on my heart
You're not broken just bent and we can learn to love again
Oh tear ducts and rust
I'll fix it for us
We're collecting dust, but our love's enough
You're holding it in
You're pouring a drink
No nothing is as bad as it seems
We'll come clean
Just give me a reason just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent and we can learn to love again
It's in the stars, it's been written in the scars on our hearts
That we're not broken just bent and we can learn to love again
Just give me a reason, just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent, and we can learn to love again
It's in the stars, it's been written in the scars on our hearts
That we're not broken just bent, and we can learn to love again
Oh we can learn to love again
Oh we can learn to love again oh oh
Oh that we're not broken just bent and we can learn to love again

She likes adventure with security
And more than one man can provide
She planned adventure feeling sure that he
Would not be home 'til after five

He turned on the lights and turned them off again
And said the one thing he could say

All these years, where have I been?
Well, I've been down the road to work and home again
And I'm still here, until I'm gone
Don't you rub it in too hard that I've been wrong
All these years

She said, "You're not the man you used to be"
And he said, "Neither is this guy"
She said, "There's some things you refuse to see
But I guess sometimes so do I"

She made no excuse why she was lying there
She said the one thing she could say

All these years, what have I done
I've made your supper and your daughter and your son
Still I'm here and still confused
But I can finally see how much I stand to lose
All these years
