I Choose:

Just cause, maybe
I don't really know
It's not me. Don't understand?
Maybe tomorrow
But then again if You could only see
I'm not Your ordinary situation or circumstance
Yes, no. Hot. Cold
Which way do I go?
Never before has there ever been more opportunity for this
Chance to make up my mind
It's time to decide, I've got no more…
Oh! No more excuses! I ain't got much time
Gotta get it together, gotta get it right
My lungs are breathin, My heart is beatin
Only because of Your love
I just can't keep runnin from Ya
I surrender!

I Choose You. I Choose truth. I Choose life. I Choose You!

One shot, I only got
One opportunity
A window to really show
That I can more than be
One who settles, cause I'm a go getter
And I want something better
All that heaven has for me yah!
Blessed in blessed out
Goin up no longer down
Never before has there ever been more opportunity for this…
Chance to make up my mind
It's time to decide, I've got no more…
Oh! No more excuses, I ain't got much time
Gotta get it together, gotta get it right
My lungs are breathin, My heart is beatin
Only because of Your love
I just can't keep runnin from Ya
I surrender!
I choose You. I choose truth. I choose life
I choose livin over dyin
Blessing over cursing
I choose You. I choose truth. I choose life
I choose truth over lyin
Freedom over prison
I choose You. I choose truth. I choose life
I choose grace over hating
Joy instead of mourning
I choose You. I choose truth. I choose life
I choose now over too late
This is a final warning!!

A life I want. A chance to love through and through until I cease the exist. Someone that accepts me and all my faults and loves me unconditionally so I may give my unconditional love and support in return.

This is when my mom unleashes her inner perfectionist.

This song and scene from the movie "Carrie" reminds me of how low my self esteem was most of my life and how I started feeling when I first made the effort to make friends and people started being nice to me and took an interest in me as a person. :)

This song, along with the animation, reminds me of what my life was like during Secondary school.

Also, this one:



Whereas this song was the one I wanted to sing to my teachers:

Not so much in a clinical sense. Disorder, as in, not ordered.



Isolation. As in, living without a true solid connection to others. Nearly always being apart by varying degrees and always being in my own world.

^^^ I just wanted to say, I've heard Quiet from Lights and probably could relate to that to back then too in school when I was younger.

This song kind of reminds me of me and my brothers and sister as little kids. We were such evil little brats. :mrgreen:

I spent so long trying to impress others and get their approval - in the end I was miserable.

Thing Called Love:

[Chorus]
This thing called love can be so cold
It can be miserable, or it can be beautiful
This thing called love can be so cold
Sometimes it's amazing, sometimes it's crazy
This thing called love

[Verse 1]
Check, check, ayy, listen!
Yo, love is like a drug that everybody uses
You wanna know the outcome—depends on how you use it
Love could be your best friend, love could be your enemy
Love could be the thing you wish you had, but you don't ever see
And love can be the reason why you're afraid to have it
Some say it like it means something, others it's a habit
And some would say it's tragic, and some would say it's beautiful
Some would say it's black and it's dark like a funeral
And some would die for it, some don't think it's even real
Some say they understand, but really don't know how it feels
Some say that it's alive, some say that it can kill
But most of us that been in it know that sometimes it will
I ain't gonna sugarcoat it, yet sometimes it might surround you
One minute it's savin' you, next it's tryin' to drown you
Some people want to show it, but were never taught how to
And some of us is searchin', feelin' like it never found you

[Chorus]
This thing called love can be so cold
It can be miserable, or it can be beautiful
This thing called love can be so cold
Sometimes it's amazing, sometimes it's crazy
This thing called love

[Verse 2]
Yo, love is like a privilege, a lot of us abuse it
Do with it what we want and then start drama when we lose it
Pretend like it ain't nothing to us, pretend that it's useless
And we don't know why we do this, but yet we still pursue it
And love, it can consume you, turn you into something else
Bury the real you so deep that you can't even find yourself
Love, it can change you, love, it can tear you down
Be the best thing you ever had and kick you on the ground
Yo, you get on that high level, yet you scared to fall
'Cause you know if that person hurts you, you gon' lose it all
They told you they would be there for you, they don't even call
So that openness you used to have has now become a wall
And some say that it's patient, some say that it's kind
I don't think it's invisible, but I know that it's blind
To some it's only physical, or all up in their mind
See, it probably isn't there if you're strugglin' to find it

[Chorus]
This thing called love can be so cold
It can be miserable, or it can be beautiful
This thing called love can be so cold
Sometimes it's amazing, sometimes it's crazy
This thing called love

[Verse 3]
This love has got me down low, now I guess I'm up high
One minute I'm on the ground, next minute I'm in the sky
I feel invincible, and so unrejected
Forget it, I'm invisible, and I feel unprotected
Yo, I don't need nobody else, trust me, I'm fine
I can't do this by myself, I'm losing my mind
Yeah, I can see clearly, forget it, I'm blind
My heart says, "danger," can't you read the signs?
Yo, but through all the pain, I swear I love it
No matter what you do, it don't disappear, does it?
Yo, I'd rather spend a minute with love in my life
Than go a million years without knowing what it's like
You better grab it, you don't wanna lose it
And yeah, it brings pain, it's insane, but the bruises
My God can take that all away, you'll find that right person
And everything you thought that wasn't becomes worth it

[Chorus]
This thing called love can be so cold
It can be miserable, or it can be beautiful
This thing called love can be so cold
Sometimes it's amazing, sometimes it's crazy
This thing called love

Through Smoke:

Before the Truth will come to fill our eyes
The wool comes down in the form of fire
And when the the answers and the Truth have cut their ties
Will you still find me
Will you still see me
Through smoke
I was born in a house in a town just like your own
I was raised to believe in the power of the unknown
'Cause when the answers and the Truth take different sides
When the whispers have painted pictures that make you doubt what you once believed in
Paper stories that hide the Glory to keep us searching
Through smoke
Who do you believe when you can't get through
When everything you know seems so untrue
When I'm lost in a place that I thought I knew
Give me some way that I might find You

Being a newbie to WP, I can't post a link. :nerdy:

My answer would be Mary Chapin Carpenter: Passionate Kisses.


Is it too much to ask?
I want a comfortable bed that won't hurt my back
Food to fill me up
And warm clothes and all that stuff
Shouldn't I have this?
Shouldn't I have this?
Shouldn't I have all of this, and

Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses from you?

Is it too much to demand
I want a full house and a rock-'n'-roll band
Pens that won't run out of ink
And cool quiet and time to think
Shouldn't I have this?
Shouldn't I have this?
Shouldn't I have all of this, and

Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses from you?

Do I want too much?
Am I going overboard to want that touch?
I shout it out to the night
Give me what I deserve 'cause it's my right
Shouldn't I have this? (shouldn't I?)
Shouldn't I have this? (shouldn't I?)
Shouldn't I have all of this, and

Passionate kisses

A winter's day
In a deep and dark December
I am alone
Gazing from my window to the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow
I am a rock
I am an island

I've built walls
A fortress deep and mighty
That none may penetrate
I have no need of friendship, friendship causes pain
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain
I am a rock
I am an island

Don't talk of love
But I've heard the words before
It's sleeping in my memory
I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died
If I never loved I never would have cried
I am a rock
I am an island

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me
I am shielded in my armour
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb
I touch no one and no one touches me
I am a rock
I am an island

And a rock feels no pain
And an island never cries
