Monday Music Therapy

Lay it on me…what’s playing on your I-Pod today?

For me it is an old-ey- but goody:

Band: Public Enemy

Song: He Got Game

Favorite lyrics:

Now if you take heed to the words of wisdom
that are written on the walls of life
then universally, we will stand and divided we will fall
because love conquers all, you understand what I’m sayin?

This is a call to all you sleepin souls
Wake up and take control of your own cipher
And be on the lookout for the spirit snipers
tryin to steal your light, y’knowhutI’msayin?

Look within-side yourself, for peace
Give thanks, live life and release
You dig me? You got me?

    Indigo Girls, Lay My Head Down
    Well everything that’s come before us leads us to where we are now
    And that’s simple, I know so why can’t I let go of the feeling
    That im lost somehow
    I’m just a ghost looking in
    Out of my own life just visiting
    In search of a body to have and to hold and to keep and to sleep.
    I want to lay my head down on you,
    Because you’re the only solid thing in this room
    A room full of missed chance, slow dance, cold fate, heartache.
    I showed up for a party and saw my life story full view
    And I wanna lay my head down on you.

    i know its tuesday but i didn’t get home until late..
    Singer: maria mena
    song: fragile (free)
    i’ve been walking around all day thinking; i think i have a problem i think i think too much
    i’ve been taught to hold back my tears and avoid them, but you’ve turned pain into something i can touch
    i am fragile
    i am hopeless
    i’m not perfect
    but i am free

    Kelly Clarkson – Addicted
    It’s like youre a drug,
    It’s like youre a demon I cant face down
    It’s like Im stuck
    It’s like Im running from you all the time
    And I know, these voices in my head are mine alone
    And I know Ill never change my ways – if I dont give you up now
    As for the vegetarian post, wow you are right, at least in my case you are. I started off as a slightly eating disordered person – very consumed with healthy food choices etc. I cut out meat (all kinds) to substitute them with legumes, nuts, funghi and tofus.. This cut out a large part of my food intake and i started restricting more and more..
    Have you heard of skinny cow icecream? Their ice cream sandwiched are to die for.. they are really very very good. All of their novelty icecreams are under 200 calories. I think it is a nice thing that there are OPTIONS instead of eating an IC that is 400-600 calories, but I think you will agree with me that their marketing (website as well as their boxes) are perhaps a little much. http://www.skinnycow.com

    for me today, its all about Untitled by Simple Plan:
    “How could this happen to me?
    I’ve made my mistakes,
    Got nowhere to run,
    The night is long.
    As im fading away,
    Im sick of this life,
    I just wanna scream,
    How could this happen to me?
    Everybody’s screaming,
    I try to make a sound but no one hears me.
    Im slipping off the edge,
    Im hanging by a thread,
    I wanna start this over again.”
    I could go on writing out the lyrics to this song as they all fit me so perfectly today. Bad Day? Never…….. roll on tomo :(
    xXx

    hilary duff
    Title: Hide Away
    Hiding away
    Losing a day
    As if it doesn’t matter
    Saying goodbye
    Scared to say why
    Afraid it will shatter our world
    Show me some faith now
    Trust me somehow
    [CHORUS]
    Why are we keeping our secrets?
    Why are we hiding ourselves away?
    Anyway we can hide away
    I don’t wanna fake it
    I wanna make you believe
    But I fear
    I won’t let you
    Hide away
    Yeah
    Where do we go?
    How do we know?
    What we’re ever really after?
    Sometimes it’s clear
    When you are here
    Nothing can shatter our world
    I need some faith now
    To trust you somehow
    [ Hilary Duff Lyrics are found on http://www.songlyrics.com ]
    [REPEAT CHORUS]
    Maybe I, maybe I, maybe I’m losing
    Maybe I, maybe I, maybe I’m okay
    Turn around
    Look around
    Go around in circle
    Don’t run away
    Drift away
    Don’t hide away
    Why are we keeping our secrets?
    Why are we hiding ourselves away?
    Anyway we can hide away
    I don’t wanna fake it
    I wanna make you believe
    But I fear
    Oh, but I fell
    Believe what I say
    I won’t let you go
    Hide away
    Hide away
    Hiding away
    Losing my day
    As if it doesn’t really matter

    Heart Shaped Glasses (When The Heart Guides The Hand) by Marilyn Manson.

    “She reminds me of the one in school
    When I was cuttin’
    She was dressed in white
    And I couldn’t take my eyes off her
    But that’s not what I took off that night
    She’ll never cover up what we did with her dress, no
    She said kiss me
    It’ll heal
    But it won’t forget
    Kiss me
    It’ll heal
    But it won’t forget
    And I don’t mind you keepin’ me
    On pins and needles
    If I could stick to you
    And you stick me too
    Don’t break
    Don’t break my heart
    And I won’t break your heart-shaped glasses
    Little girl, little girl
    You should close your eyes
    That blue is getting me high
    Don’t break
    Don’t break my heart
    And I won’t break your heart-shaped glasses
    Little girl, little girl
    You should close your eyes
    That blue is getting me high
    And making me low
    That blue is getting me high
    And making me low
    She reminds me of a one I knew
    That cut up the negatives of my life
    I couldn’t take my hands off her
    She wouldn’t let me be anywhere but inside
    And I don’t mind you keepin’ me
    On pins and needles
    If I could stick to you
    And you stick me too
    Just don’t break
    Don’t break my heart
    And I won’t break your heart-shaped glasses
    Little girl, little girl
    You should close your eyes
    That blue is getting me high
    Don’t break
    Don’t break my heart
    And I won’t break your heart-shaped glasses
    Little girl, little girl
    You should close your eyes
    That blue is getting me high
    And making me low
    She’ll never cover up what we did with her dress, no
    She said kiss me
    It’ll heal
    But it won’t forget
    Kiss me
    It’ll heal
    But it won’t forget
    I don’t mind you keepin’ me
    On pins and needles
    If I could stick to you
    And you stick me too
    Don’t break
    Don’t break my heart
    And I won’t break your heart-shaped glasses
    Little girl, little girl
    You should close your eyes
    That blue is getting me high
    Don’t break
    Don’t break my heart
    And I won’t break your heart-shaped glasses
    Little girl, little girl
    You should close your eyes
    That blue is getting me high
    And making me low”

    Here are two of my favourite Monday tunes:
    You and Me and Everyone We Know – Maia Hirasawa
    Think fast before they say that I love you
    Think fast before they say you love me to
    Cause then I´ll put my runningshoes on
    And I´ll run, run, run
    I ran
    Cause I love the exercise and morningbreeze
    And I run when I know what people hear
    About you and me and everyone we know
    That´s just the way it goes
    But they won´t tell anyone about this no, no.no
    Just a few of their lets say twenty best friends
    That you can choose
    Just a few of their lets say twenty best friends
    That we´ve been making out in front of television
    Think twice before they say, “I said so”
    Think twice, in a few seconds the whole office knows
    That we´ve been holding hands and haven´t said
    Hello, hello, hello
    Nothing´s happened though
    And please, don´t take this way too far
    Cause they´ve already been whispering at the backstagebar
    About you and me and everyone we know
    That´s just the way it goes
    But they won´t tell anyone about this no, no.no
    Just a few of their lets say twenty best friends
    That you sent a text to me and I was overwhelmed
    Just a few of their lets say thirty best friends
    That I had a bad day and thought it was the end
    I´ve heard that Sarah said to Maria that Oscar
    And Fredrik found out that Julia
    And Tommy was trying to see through that Josefine and Annika
    Don´t remember excacly but I
    Think it was Sarah that said to Maria…
    About you and me and everyone we know
    That´s just the way it goes
    That´s just the way life shows
    Definitely search this next one up on youtube! An explicit, but great song is:
    “Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole” by Martha Wainwright.
    Poetry is no place for a heart that’s a whore
    And I’m young & I’m strong
    But I feel old & tired
    Overfired
    And I’ve been poked & stoked
    It’s all smoke, there’s no more fire
    Only desire
    For you, whoever you are
    For you, whoever you are
    You say my time here has been some sort of joke
    That I’ve been messing around
    Some sort of incubating period
    For when I really come around
    I’m cracking up
    And you have no idea
    No idea how it feels to be on your own
    In your own home
    with the fucking phone
    And the mother of gloom
    In your bedroom
    Standing over your head
    With her hand in your head
    With her hand in your head
    I will not pretend
    I will not put on a smile
    I will not say I’m all right for you
    When all I wanted was to be good
    To do everything in truth
    To do everything in truth
    Oh I wish I wish I wish I was born a man
    So I could learn how to stand up for myself
    Like those guys with guitars
    I’ve been watching in bars
    Who’ve been stamping their feet to a different beat
    To a different beat
    To a different beat
    I will not pretend
    I will not put on a smile
    I will not say I’m all right for you
    When all I wanted was to be good
    To do everything in truth
    To do everything in truth
    You bloody mother fucking asshole
    Oh you bloody mother fucking asshole
    Oh you bloody mother fucking asshole
    Oh you bloody mother fucking asshole
    Oh you bloody mother fucking asshole
    Oh you bloody…
    I will not pretend
    I will not put on a smile
    I will not say I’m all right for you
    For you, whoever you are
    For you, whoever you are
    For you, whoever you are
    Love Alex <3

    I dreamed a dream. This woman is amazing. Best I have heard since I heard Ruthie Henshall sing it. It gives me chills. For some reson this song gives me hope…just fills my soul…not even sure if its the lyrics, the instrumental or what but it touches me.

    Coldplay: Yellow
    Your skin
    Oh yeah your skin and bones
    Turn into something beautiful

  11. Aisling says:

    Miley cyrus – the climb
    I can almost see it
    That dream I’m dreaming but
    There’s a voice inside my head sayin,
    You’ll never reach it,
    Every step I’m taking,
    Every move I make feels
    Lost with no direction
    My faith is shaking but I
    Got to keep trying
    Got to keep my head held high
    There’s always going to be another mountain
    I’m always going to want to make it move
    Always going to be an uphill battle,
    Sometimes I’m going to have to lose,
    Ain’t about how fast I get there,
    Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
    It’s the climb
    The struggles I’m facing,
    The chances I’m taking
    Sometimes they might knock me down but
    No I’m not breaking
    I may not know it
    But these are the moments that
    I’m going to remember most yeah
    Just got to keep going
    And I,
    I got to be strong
    Just keep pushing on,
    cause
    There’s always going to be another mountain
    I’m always going to want to make it move
    Always going to be an uphill battle,
    Sometimes I’m going to have to lose,
    Ain’t about how fast I get there,
    Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
    It’s the climb
    There’s always going to be another mountain
    I’m always going to want to make it move
    Always going to be an uphill battle,
    Somebody’s you’re going to have to lose,
    Ain’t about how fast I get there,
    Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
    It’s the climb
    Keep on moving
    Keep climbing
    Keep the faith baby
    It’s all about
    It’s all about
    The climb
    Keep the faith
    Keep your faith

    Temporary home, I love this song cause…I may not be where i’m supposed to be in life right now but i’ll eventually get there.

    Little boy, 6 years old
    A little too used to bein’ alone
    Another new mom and dad,another school
    Another house that’ll never be home
    When people ask him how he likes this place
    He looks up and says with a smile upon his face

    “This is my temporary home
    It’s not where I belong
    Windows and rooms that I’m passin’ through
    This is just a stop, on the way to where I’m going
    I’m not afraid because I know this is my
    Temporary Home.”

    Young mom on her own
    She needs a little help got nowhere to go
    She’s lookin’ for a job, lookin’ for a way out
    Because a half-way house will never be a home
    At night she whispers to her baby girl
    Someday we’ll find a place here in this world

    “This is our temporary home
    It’s not where we belong
    Windows and rooms that we’re passin’ through
    This is just a stop, on the way to where we’re going
    I’m not afraid because I know this is our
    Temporary Home.”

    Old man, hospital bed
    The room is filled with people he loves
    And he whispers don’t cry for me
    I’ll see you all someday
    He looks up and says “I can see God’s face”

    “This is my temporary Home
    It’s not where I belong
    Windows and rooms that I’m passin’ through
    This was just a stop,on the way To where I’m going
    I’m not afraid because I know this was
    My temporary home.”
