Song Lyrics Part Deux

I am exactly where I need to be, I need to be exactly where I am, I am a blessing manifest. I can undress the moment, naked time unwinds beneath my mind and from within I find the kind of beauty only I can find. I am exactly where I need to be, I need to be exactly where I am, I am surrendering so willingly to be the perfect me inside this now, and truly how else could it be? Destiny she blesses me. When I try to fight or run I only wind up back at square one. When I think I know what's best for me fate, she takes me back to exactly where I need to be. I am exactly where I need to be, I need to be exactly where I am, I am divinely timed and shining brightly. Yes, I believe that there's a purpose just for me, yes, I believe that we are light and we shine infinitely. I am exactly where I need to be, I need to be exactly where I am, I am not aimlessly existing, see I am in perfect harmony with universal energy and I am truly free when I accept my own divinity. Look at me, look at me closely. Tell me exactly what you see. If you are paying attention you will now begin ascension of the mind. Why? Because if you look at me just right you will see a kiss. For it took a kiss to make this breath exist, the intersection of my mother's and father's lips, to touch twist and perfect what came next to produce me. Look at me and you will see the breeze. The breeze it took to shake the leaves to make my mother's hair move, my father dare touch it and say 'please may I have a kiss'. Yes, the breeze made me exist. And if you want to get even deeper into this when you look at me you will see a big old cloud. The cloud it took to form the storm to shake the leaves to inspire the liplock - yes a raindrop will pop up out these words. You heard me right, if you look at me close enough you will see a dark stormy night. And what is night without it's polar opposite of sunlight, so if you watch the way my hands sway you'll see the light of day. And everyday is a testament to the sediment of the earth's core, its ever spinning enormous force, so if you look at me just right you will see a spark of the source, but the most fascinating thing about this, and it's true, is that if you look at me close enough, you see you. It's only what you perceive, how you believe, the space between you and me that creates reality. So when I sing you can feel it, when I cry you can heal it, when I speak words you can be the words I speak by singing with me. Peace, love, free, peace, love, free, peace, love, free. And when I am alone and full of fear, I just remember the rising sun always appears. Everyday miracles, miracles that I see, well they take me back to exactly where I need to be. A am exactly where I need to be, I need to be exactly where I am, I am a blessing manifest. - Amy Steinberg, Exactly

Where can a sick man go wen he can’t choke down the medicine, the old Doc knows. A specialist came to town, but he stays at home, saying 'no one knows, so I don’t'. Honey, when in Rome. - Nickel Creek, When In Rome

Jesus Christ, that's a pretty face. The kind you'd find on someone that could save. If they don't put me away, well, it'll be a miracle. Do you believe you're missing out, that everything good is happening somewhere else? But with nobody in your bed the night's hard to get through. And I will die all alone. And when I arrive I won't know anyone. Well, Jesus Christ, I'm alone again. So what did you do those three days you were dead? Cause this problem's gonna last more than the weekend. Well, Jesus Christ, I'm not scared of dying, I'm a little bit scared of what comes after. Do I get the gold chariot? Do I float through the ceiling? Do I divide and fall apart? Cause my bright is too slight to hold back all my dark. And the ship went down in sight of land. And at the gates does Thomas ask to see my hands? I know you're coming in the night like a thief, but I've had some time, O Lord, to hone my lying technique. I know you think that I'm someone you can trust, but I'm scared I'll get scared and I swear I'll try to nail you back up. So do you think that we could work out a sign so I'll know it's you and that it's over so I won't even try? I know you're coming for the people like me, but we all got wood and nails and turned out a hate factory. We all got wood and nails and turned out a hate factory. We all got wood and nails and we sleep inside of this machine. - Brand New, Jesus Christ

I once knew a girl in the years of my youth with eyes like the summer, all beauty and truth. In the morning I fled, left a note and it read 'Someday you will be loved.' I cannot pretend that I felt any regret cause each broken heart will eventually mend. As the blood runs red down the needle and thread. Someday you will be loved. You'll be loved, you'll be loved, like you never have known. The memories of me will seem more like bad dreams. Just a series of blurs, like I never occurred. Someday you will be loved. You may feel alone when you're falling asleep. And every time tears roll down your cheeks, but I know your heart belongs to someone you've yet to meet. Someday you will be loved. - Death Cab For Cutie, Someday You will Be Loved

In Catholic school, vicious as Roman rule, I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black. And I held my tongue as she told me, 'Son, fear is the heart of love'. So I never went back. - Death Cab For Cutie, I Will Follow You Into the Dark

I never conquered, rarely came. - Blink-182, Adam's Song

Walk away me boys, walk away me boys and by morning we'll be free. Wipe that golden tear from your mother dear and raise what's left of the flag for me. Then the rosary beads, count them 1-2-3, fell apart as they hit the floor. In a garb of black we must pay respect to the color we were born to mourn. - Flogging Molly, What's Left of the Flag

There's a hotel in my memory, pink flamingos and light flickering from the TV screen. Come lay down here with me. Your mom and dad were right outside, so we climbed up here, so we can hide from everything. All the lies that we've lived beneath. Let's pick up where we left off. - Rocky Votolato, Where We left Off

There's people always dyin', tryin' to keep 'em alive. There' s bodies decomposing in containers tonight in an abandoned building where the squatters made a mural of a Mexican girl with fifteen cans of spray paint and a chemical swirl. She's standing in the ashes at the edge of the world, four winds blowin' through her hair. - Bright Eyes, Four Winds

Emptiness is loneliness, and loneliness is cleanliness, and cleanliness is godliness, and God is empty, just like me. Intoxicated with the madness, I'm in love with my sadness. - Smashing Pumpkins, Zero

The last time I saw you, you turned away. I couldn't see you with the sun shining in my eyes. I said "Hello" but you kept on walking. I'm going deaf from the sound of the freeway. - +44, Make You Smile

I came here with a load and it feels so much lighter, now I’ve met you. And honey you should know, that I could never go on without you. Green eyes. - Coldplay, Green Eyes

Well, I'm not paralyzed, but I seem to be struck by you. - Finger Eleven, Paralyzer

Her every word was in italics as it would fall from her lips. - She Wants Revenge, Sister

More to come!
