For people who appreciate a somewhat darker perspective.

 

Just when I thought I'd reached the bottom
I'm dying again
I'm going under
Drowning in you
I'm falling forever
I've got to break through

 

Turns out being emo also leads to enlightenment! :P

I don’t like sand. It’s coarse and rough and irritating… and it gets everywhere

See the lights out on the water
Come and go, to and from
In the time it takes to find them
You can live, you can die
And nothing stops the river as it goes by
Nothing stops the river as it goes

All alone and all together
Every day, come what may
By the time we find each other
We can live, we can die
And nothing stops the river as it flows by
Nothing stops the river as it goes


To balance beauty and complexity so perfectly is a divine mystery.

Giving In To The Love -Aurora

I’m losing my connection
I’m tired of the rules and your corrections
I want to live my life, be all of it’s pages
And underline that I am not an angel

‘Cause if I’m not pure, I guess that I’m too much
I’ll never know how to keep in, keep in touch

If I’ll be somebody, I’ll never let my skin be decided for me
I’ll never have the world, so why change for it?
I’ll never have the world, so why change for it?

Giving in to the love
Giving in to the love
Giving in to the love, the love, the love, the love

Someone out there is trying to find somebody whole who is not dying
But everybody cries and nobody comforts
The television lies and now my mind hurts

And if I’m not loved, I guess that I am cursed
I gotta know how to beat it, beat it first

If I’ll be somebody, I’ll never let my skin be decided for me
I’ll never have the world, so why change for it?
I’ll never have the world, so why change for it?

Giving in to the love
Giving in to the love
Giving in to the love, the love, the love, the love, the love

My love is like foot steps in the snow, baby,
I follow you everywhere you go, baby.
The pain as light has come to wake you

But you will never realize, That I inspire the dreams that guide you, baby.
I follow the winds that bring the cold, baby, I light a fire in your soul, baby.
The lightest touch of feathers falling, My love might be invisible

But I inspire the dreams that guide you, baby, You're a half a world away
But in my mind I whisper every single word you say.
And before you sleep at night You pray to me, your lucky star, your singing satellite.
Your singing satellite, You say a prayer You say a prayer You're a half a world away

But in my mind I whisper every single word you say.
And before you sleep at night You pray to me, your lucky star, your singing satellite.
You're a half a world away, But in my mind I whisper every single word you say.
And before you sleep at night, You pray to me, your lucky star, your singing satellite...


Life moves you… Movement is Stillness. Stillness is Movement.
Like a stream in a river. To give up whatever you think yourself to be…
To free you from the burden of having to be one specific thing, forever… You are everything…

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
'Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me

?

It's burning down, It's burning high

When ashes fall, the legends rise!

First heard this song as a kid in a Doraemon Movie. Today I realized what this song was really about
