Dream out loud.
I don't think there is anything better than that simple quote. It (to me) means bringing your dreams out, bringing them more to life by realizing them and sharing them and moving with them. It makes them more real, more of a goal to work for.

There are many many more I love!

And I have no compass
And I have no map
And I have no reasons
No reasons to get back.

And I have no religion
And I don't know what's what
And I don't know the limit
The limit of what we got.

Every artist is a cannibal
every poet is a thief
all kill their inspiration
and sing about the grief.

Those lyrics single handedly made me realize what an awesome song The Fly really is.

Those are such great lyrics... I actually based a college entrance essay around them!

They're just so true.

hard to choose

And if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if our way should falter
Along the stony pass

And if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if your way should falter
Along the stony pass
It's just a moment
This time will pass


I'm not the only one
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find
If you take a look inside.
Not just deaf and dumb
I'm staring at the sun
Not the only one
Who's happy to go blind.


Leave it behind
You've got to leave it behind
All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break
All that you measure
All that you steal
All this you can leave behind
All that you reason
All that you sense
All that you speak
All you dress up
All that you scheme…

In my dream I was drowning my sorrows
But my sorrows, they learned to swim
Surrounding me, going down on me
Spilling over the brim
Waves of regret and waves of joy
I reached out for the one I tried to destroy


No, nothing makes sense
Nothing seems to fit
I know you'd hit out
If you only knew who to hit
And I'd join the movement
If there was one I could believe in
Yeah I'd break bread and wine
If there was a church I could receive in
'cause I need it now

oh wait....was i supposed to pick only one?

And I'd join the movement
If there was one I could believe in
Yeah I'd break bread and wine
If there was a church I could receive in



you say i'm a fool, you say i'm nothing.
but if i'm a fool for you, oh that's something.


i can't change the world, but i can change the world in me.


we scorch the earth, set fire to the sky
and we stoop so low, to reach so high


and i really don't mind sleeping on the floor
but i couldn't sleep after what i saw
i wrote this letter to tell you
the way i feel
and i wish you were here


take my shirt, go on and take it off me
you can tear it up if you can tie me down


you had to win, you couldn't just pass
the smartest ass at the top of the class


they ask me to reveal the very thoughts they would conceal


(insert all of god part II here)


so we are told this is the golden age
and gold is the reason for the wars we wage


midnight is where the day begins


some days are sulky, some days have a grin
and some days have bouncers and won't let you in


(insert all of the first time here)


if you need someone to blame
throw a rock in the air
you'll hit someone guilty

Stay (far away so close)

Three o'clock in the morning
It's quiet and there's no one around
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel runs to ground

great post. I'm a sucker for cool lyrics and like to read them!

Re: Stay (far away so close)

ocean from boy

and i felt like a star
i felt the world could go far
if they listened
to what i said

They want you to play Jesus
So you go down on one knee
But they'll want their money back
If you're alive at 33

Those lyrics have to be the most clever, poignant, witty words ever joined together. I absolutely LOVE them.

For the moment these are my favorite U2 lyrics... it will change because there are many good ones.

No, nothing makes sense
Nothing seems to fit
I know you'd hit out
If you only knew who to hit
And I'd join the movement
If there was one I could believe in
Yeah I'd break bread and wine
If there was a church I could receive in

the first two that come to my mind...

take the colours of my imagination
take the scent hanging in the air
take this tangle of a conversation
and turn it into your own prayer


i want to reach out over the loch
and feel your hand across the water
walk with you along an unapproved road
not looking over my shoulder

*cough* no U2... just Barenaked Ladies. I'm odd.

You're so 1990 - and it's 1994.


I wish everyone that I knew hadn't sold out to the man.


You're the last thing on my mind.


I'm so cool, too bad I'm a loser.
I'm so smart, to bad I can't get anything figured out.


If all else fails you can blame it on me.


If you need her, you should be there.
Go home!


The lights are on but nobody's home,
My elevator doesn't go to the top,
I'm not playing with a full deck,
I've lost my marbles.

weeeeee I'll stop. :-D

sleater-kinney - "burn, don't freeze"
i'm the one who decides who i am
i'm the one who will shed this old skin
(i have the first line tattooed on my arm. it's a declaration, it's empowerment. it makes me feel strong.)

U2 - "drowning man"
take my hand
you know i'll be there
if you can
i'll cross the sky for your love
and i understand
these winds and tides
this change of times
won't drag you away
hold on, and hold on tightly
hold on, and don't let go
of my love
(i think it's the most beautiful song in the world. i want to have a love like that.)

weezer - "falling for you"
i've got a number of irrational fears
that i'd like to share with you

boilermaker - "slow down"
pull back my lip
while i watch my step
spitting words hurts me
facing backwards
might cause you to slip
to slow down
watch your step
take a little trip down
who knows where to land?
your broken hand scratch my back
mend me now
my chance to move on
who's to know?
what the outer side might glimpse
a glimpse, gather my sense
sit back and mend myself
take a walk outside
too bored to sleep
not enough time to get anything halfway done.

devo - "freedom of choice"
victim of collision on the open sea
nobody ever said that life was free
sink, swim, go down with the ship
but use your freedom of choice
i say it again in the land of the free
use your freedom of choice

the shins - "know your onion"
what kind of life you dream of?
you're allergic to love!

there are plenty more, but this is a fair sampling. :)

I feel afraid and I call your name
I love your voice and your dance insane
I hear your words and I know your pain
your head in your hands and her kiss on the lips of another
your eyes to the ground
and the world spinning round forever
asleep in the sand with the ocean washing over

(Jeff Buckley, Dreambrother)

You asked me to enter
But then you made me crawl
And I can't be holding on to what you've got
When all you've got is hurt


I'm looking at my watch
Another time has been stolen
When I was carrying you
Seems I've tripped and I've fallen
