No Lies, Just Love...the song in your sig, is my favorite song of theirs...it seriously brings tears to my eyes. :cry: <---me

"so I prefer to be remembered as a smiling face....not this fuckin wreck thats taken place."

I wrote this for a baby

Who has yet to be born

My brother's first child

I hope that womb's not too warm

Cause it's cold out here

And it'll be quite a shock

To breathe this air

To discover loss

So I'd like to make some changes

Before you arive

So when your new eyes meet mine

They won't see no lies

Just love.

Just love.


I will be pure

No, no, I know i will be pure

Like snow, like gold

how beautiful is that?!?! Its really comforting to know that there are guys in this world who appreciate music like this

Another good song is "Falling Out of Love @ this Volume"

tell me what you wanted to hear

let me do the right thing

let me do the wrong thing

and if it's ever this clear

i will only say it once

just let me turn the amps way up

so you can hear nothing

and if i die tonight then i guess i die tonight

let me go on

just say what you wanted to say

i cannot stand these talks dear

they only get us nowhere

it's never resolved

we only run around

you wanna tell me anyone could be just like me

if it's a different time and a different place to be

you would go on

And my other favorite song....hehe sorry I'm at work and I have lots of time!

A Perfect Sonnet

lately i've been wishing i had one desire

something that would make me never want another

something that would make it so that nothing matters

all would be clear then

but i guess i'll have to settle for a for a few brief moments

and watch all dissolve into a single second

and try to write it down into a perfect sonnet

or one foolish line

because that's all that you'll get so you'll have to accept

you are here and then you're gone

but i believe that lovers should be tied together and

thrown into the ocean in the worst of weather

and left there to drown

left there to drown

in their innocence

but as for me i'm coming to the final chapter

i read all of the pages and there is still no answer

only all that was before i know must soon come after

that is the only way it can be

so i stand in the sun

and i breathe with my lungs

trying to spare myself the weight of the truth

saying everything you have ever seen was just a mirror

and you've spent your whole life sweating in an endless fever

and now you are laying ina bathtum full of freezing water

wishing you were a ghost

but once you knew a girl and you named her lover

and danced with her in kitchens through the greenest summer

but autumn came, she disappeared

you can't remember where she said she was going to

but you know that she is gone because she left you a song

that you don't want to sing

we're singing i believe that lovers should be chained together

and thrown into a fire with their songs and letters

and left there to burn in their arrogance

but as for me i'm coming to my final failure

i've killed myself with changes trying to make it better

but i still ended up becoming something other than what i had planned to be

now i believe that lovers should be draped in flowers

and layed entwined together on a bed of clover

and left there to sleep

left there to dream of their happiness

**that is soooo beautiful!!!! I love it. I know the whole thing by heart, hehe. I hope you come on soon so you can share some stuff too! This is like our thread, hehe :blush:

There's a dream in my brain that just won’t go away.

It's been stuck there since it came a few nights ago

And I’m standing on a bridge in the town where I lived

as a kid with my mom and my brothers.

And then the bridge disappears

and I’m standing on air

with nothing holding me.

And I hang like a star,

fucking glow in the dark,

for all those starving eyes to see,

like the ones we’ve wished on.
