A thread for songs that reflect your feeling, preferably if you think can relate to your autistic traits. Subjective, of course - just post what you feel belongs here.

(Actually in my supported football/soccer club forum, in Hebrew, we have "song threads" every weekend where people just post a song (lyrics/youtube) to express their feelings... I think especially in this kind of forum it can be interesting to see how people feel, and maybe relate to songs you didn't know before)

PLEASE: No random list, just post lyrics + link if possible :roll:

To start: John Frusciante - Time Tonight

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JD5h3y0a9AU[/youtube]

For changing lines I've got no time tonight
In this times the wind surpasses the tide
When the wake-up's hard to find
Dreams make up for you life


This crazy shine, it never lets you die
Growing up we become what we want

Again the moon rises up too high
And we don't need the sky

Wonder what it is that makes the world turn slower
Wonder what it is that makes me feel so mad
Everyone that talks to me I so wish wouldn't
I wouldn't even care, except I feel so bad

I feel so bad...

Why is there no one in my life?
Time, there's no time tonight
Wide, there's no room to see wide
Time, there's no time tonight

There's no one in my life

John Frusciante - The Real

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpTesst2HN0[/youtube]

I don't know the real from what I though I saw
I can't remember where I went, where I was

I'm gonna move towards a point in time
Where where you are is a state of mind
And anytime I can read your thoughts
Some of them yours and some I thought up


There's no good reason for heartbreak
Nothing's repeating every Monday
There's no good saying you'll always be mine
These jokes life's playing, they made me so tired, so tired...

It's already too much to always see you off
The sense that hours go back is enough


I like to fade when I write this line
There's every reason to paint a decline
And every mile I walk is five

I'll get where I'm going in the next life

And all the while there's a false face
This every killing is left untraced
This kind of falling saved my son
This constant longing for what's gone, what's gone... what's gone...

a bit of metallica right now. Bad day so far. too much nt vs. me conflict.

Sleep, my friend, and you will see
The dream is my reality
They keep me locked up in this cage
Can't they see it's why my brain says “rage”

Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Build my fear of what's out there
Cannot breathe the open air
Whisper things into my brain
Assuring me that I'm insane
They think our heads are in their hands
But violent use brings violent plans
Keep him tied, it makes him well
He's getting better, can't you tell?

That's probably the only place you'll find it. I transcribed the lyrics myself last night. They're pretty accurate except the bit in brackets.

The song itself reminds me of how I feel... sort of under appreciated as a friend some times, among other things. I always try to break the cycle - being an engineer, I change tactics when they stop working. Sometimes my cut-and-run attitude seems a bit harsh even to me.

My Sense of Emptiness
by Echo Image

My sense of emptiness is gone
Lifted from my soul
I feel the passion

All those years seem so unreal
I open up and feel

Your eyes make me so weak
Your smile is hard to speak
I face another day
My love is in your way

Do you know these feelings too?

[[Your tender night don’t care too much
A simpered by your touch]]
I’m scared to believe in you

I guess it frightened you away
That day I had to say
Your eyes make me so weak
Your smile is hard to speak
I’m faced by everyday
With love that’s in your way
The stumbling words of trust
I tremble when we touch
Just longing for the day
That love comes in my way

I tried too hard to make it right
I should have known that too long ago
I’m waiting, analyzing signs
Believing everything
But I won’t go on suffering
Each day I hear you
Speak of someone new
It’s time to say goodbye


Your eyes make me so weak
I smile; it’s hard to speak
I’m faced by everyday
With love that’s in your way
The stumbling words of trust
I tremble when we touch
Just longing for the day
That love comes in my way

For all the lone wolves out there, who despite the pain must continue moving forward...

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0T3WAbU6tg[/youtube]
Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories they're haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye

Even with our fists held high
It never would've worked out right
We were never meant for do or die

I didn't want us to burn out
I didn't come here to hold you, now I can't stop

I want you to know that it doesn't matter
Where we take this road someone's gotta go
And I want you to know you couldn't have loved me better
But I want you to move on so I'm already gone

Looking at you makes it harder
But I know that you'll find another
That doesn't always make you want to cry

Started with a perfect kiss then we could feel the poison set in
Perfect couldn't keep this love alive
You know that I love you so, I love you enough to let you go

I want you to know that it doesn't matter
Where we take this road someone's gotta go
And I want you to know you couldn't have loved me better
But I want you to move on so I'm already gone

I'm already gone, already gone
You can't make it feel right when you know that it's wrong
I'm already gone, already gone
There's no moving on so I'm already gone

Already gone, already gone, already gone
Already gone, already gone, already gone, yeah

Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories they're haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye

I want you to know that it doesn't matter
Where we take this road someone's gotta go
And I want you to know you couldn't have loved me better
But I want you to move on so I'm already gone

I'm already gone, already gone
You can't make it feel right when you know that it's wrong
I'm already gone, already gone
There's no moving on so I'm already gone

I've been feeling numb today. Thought this would be appropriate. I read on wikipedia the girl in the video is supposed to be autistic. To me this song is about not wanting to have to act "normal" all the time, and just being yourself.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfrIipujxfQ[/youtube]

i'm tired of being what you want me to be
feeling so faithless
lost under the surface
i don't know what you're expecting of me
put under the pressure
of walking in your shoes

[caught in the undertow / just caught in the undertow]
every step that i take is another mistake to you

i've
become so numb
i can't feel you there
become so tired
so much more aware
i'm becoming this
all i want to do
is be more like me
and be less like you

can't you see that you're smothering me
holding too tightly
afraid to lose control
cause everything that you thought i would be
has fallen apart right in front of you

[caught in the undertow / just caught in the undertow]
every step that i take is another mistake to you
[caught in the undertow / just caught in the undertow]
and every second i waste is more than i can take

but i know
i may end up failing too
but i know
you were just like me
with someone disappointed in you

Right now only this song from The Golden Girls along with Blanche's comedic awkwardness can describe how I feel. :mrgreen:

Marina and Diamonds - Solitaire

Quote:
Don't wanna talk anymore
I'm obsessed with silence
I go home and I lock my door
I can hear the sirens

I see buildings and bars from the window
And I listen to the wind blow
I see people and cars covered in gold
And I'm happy to be on my own

Hard like a rock, cold like stone
White like a diamond, black like coal
Cut like a jewel, yeah I repair
Myself when you're not there

Solitaire
Something you consider rare
I don't wanna be compared
With that cheap shimmer and glitter
Solitaire

I'm in love with the ice-blue, gray skies of England
I'll admit, all I wanna do is get drunk and silent
Watch my life unfold all around me
Like a beautiful garden
I see flowers so tall, they surround me
Oh my heart, it became so hardened

Hard like a rock, cold like stone
White like a diamond, black like coal
Cut like a jewel, yeah I repair
Myself when you're not there

Solitaire
Something you consider rare
I don't wanna be compared
With that cheap shimmer and glitter
Solitaire

And all the other jewels around me
They astounded me at first
I covered up my heart in boundaries
And all the fakes, they called me cursed
But I'm not cursed, I'm not cursed
I was just covered in dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt


Solitaire
Something you consider rare
I don't wanna be compared
With that cheap shimmer and glitter

Solitaire

Hm
Solitaire
Hm
Solitaire

Solitaire

Solitaire

Bolding mine


Beautiful song too





Oingo Boingo - On the Outside
They laugh at me aloud
They say I'm just a clown
That I ain't got no pride
I'm on the outside
The girls look really cute
They really make it work
They think I'm just a jerk
I'm on the outside
I never could sit still
I never was too hip
I never caught the ride
I'm on the outside

I'm on the outside, I'm on the outside now
This is where it all begins right here
On the outside lookin' in, I'm on the outside

I never was a punk
I never shot junk
I never even tried
Counter culture passed me right by
(I'm on the outside)

Don't talk to debutantes
Don't eat in restaurants
The patrons sit and stare
The waiters make wise cracks behind my back
(I'm on the outside)

Teachers there in school
They flunked me by the rule
They say I had no motivation, brains or dedication
I guess the imbeciles were right I'm on the outside

I'm on the outside, I'm on the outside now
This is where it all begins on the outside looking in
Looking in
At you
I'm just an alien through and through
Tryin' to make believe I'm you
Tryin' to fit
Just a stranger on the outside looking in

The disco makes me sick
I wear the wrong clothes
I say the wrong things
You know I can't dance
My feet are much too wide (I'm on the outside)

You think you set the trends
You wear your hair just right
Your clothes are outta sight
Your house is modern really kitsch
You get so macho when you're with your b***h
(I'm on the outside)

I see them go to work
I see them go to sleep
I see them on T.V.
I see them laugh and cry
I'm on the outside. I'm on the outside. I'm on the outside

(Repeat chorus)

I'm on the outside. I'm on the outside now
I'm on the outside
I'm on the outside now

You've got a hold of me
Don't even know your power
I stand a hundred feet
But I fall when I'm around ya
Show me an open door
And you go and slam it on me
I can't take anymore
I'm saying baby
Please have mercy on me
Take it easy on my heart
Even though you don't mean to hurt me
You keep tearing me apart
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart
I'd drive through the night
Just to be near you, baby
Heart old, and testified
Tell me that I'm not crazy
I'm not asking for a lot
Just that you're honest with me
My pride is all I got
I'm saying baby
Please have mercy on me
Take it easy on my heart
Even though you don't mean to hurt me
You keep tearing me apart
Would you please have mercy on me
I'm a puppet on your string
And even though you got good intentions
I need you to set me free
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart
Consuming all the air inside my lungs
Ripping all the skin from off my bones
I'm prepared to sacrifice my life
I would gladly do it twice
Consuming all the air inside my lungs
Ripping all the skin from off my bones
I'm prepared to sacrifice my life
I would gladly do it twice
Please have mercy on me
Take it easy on my heart
Even though you don't mean to hurt me
You keep tearing me apart
Would you please have mercy on me
I'm a puppet on your string
And even though you got good intentions
I need you to set me free
I'm begging you for mercy, mercy
Begging you, begging you, please, baby
I'm begging you for mercy, mercy
Ooh, I'm begging you, I'm begging you

I love Mercy so much. When I broke up with my ex, a long time ago, that song gave me a lot of strength. Shawn Mendes is such a great singer!

HEY! HEY! HEY!
Sit back from the edge of your seat, if you can
Take a minute to remember to breathe, ‘cause we're losing our minds
Where anything goes
Rebel just to say that you did, to impress every hate-spewing keyboarded kid
Let's let everyone know, anything goes

[Chorus ]
Can we live a real life?
A real life; and do we even know what that means?
Can we live a real life; and know people outside machines?
Can we live a real life between the devil and the digital sea? (HEY! HEY! HEY!)

[Verse 2]
With every photo you are taking my soul but you know every shot is just another to show to the people that live
Where anything goes
Criticize every poor as*hole ‘cause you know you're the judge
Check the yes, check the no, in the box below
Where anything goes

[Chorus]
But Can we live a real life?
A real life; and do we even know what that means?
Can we live a real life; and know people outside machines?
Can we live a real life between the devil and the digital sea? (HEY! HEY! HEY!)
[Verse 3]
A new canon is coming up and its calling on the World: Move fast and out of control, do anything you want
No mind, no memory. Just your allegiance to the fad
Hate, love, sex coming in clean; taking over all of our hands

[Chorus]
Can we live a real life?
A real life; and do we even know what that means?
Can we live a real life; and know people outside machines?
Can we live a real life between the devil and the digital sea? (HEY! HEY! HEY!)
