Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars

We'll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don't need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

Let's waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see

I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Sleep - My Chemical Romance

they're these terrors
kind of like it feels like
as if somebody was gripping my throat...

they're, they're not like tremors, they're worse than
tremors. they're, they're these terrors

like late at night
umm they're not like tremors, they're
worse than tremors
they're, they're these terrors
kind of like, it feels like as if somebody
was gripping my throat and squeezing and,
I feel...

...it feels like as if somebody was gripping my throat and...

Some say, now suffer all the children
And walk away a savior,
Or a madman and polluted
From gutter institutions.
Don´t you breathe for me,
Undeserving of your sympathy,
Cause there ain´t no way that I´m sorry for what I did.

And through it all
How could you cry for me?
Cause I don´t feel bad about it.
So shut your eyes,
Kiss me goodbye,
And sleep.
Just sleep.

The hardest part is letting go of
Your dreams.

A drink for the horror that I´m in,
For the good guys, and the bad guys,
For the monsters that I´ve been.
Three cheers for tyranny,
Unapologetic apathy,
Cause there ain´t no way that I´m coming back again.

And through it all
How could you cry for me?
Cause I don´t feel bad about it.
So shut your eyes,
Kiss me goodbye,
And sleep.
Just sleep.

The hardest part
is awful things that I´ve seen.

...sometimes I see flames and sometimes
I see people I love dying, and its always...
sometimes I see flames and sometimes I see people I love dying...

Just sleep.
Just sleep.
Just sleep.
Just sleep.
Just sleep.
Just sleep.

Wake up!


Beautiful song, I can play it on the piano too.

Well, it's not my favorite per se, but I can easily vouch for it being the most well written, thought provoking, emotion filled song ever.

Now, you kind of need the music to go with it. But the lyrics are
Quote:
"Hello?
Well, well, how are you?
Uh.. who is this?
Who do you think this is?
Stop it.. who is this?
You know very well who i am..
You almost got away from me didn't you?
Oh my god.. you can't be.. you can't be!
Hahaha
Oui, oui, mon amour...c'est moi."

I gave you my time
I gave you my whole life
I gave you my love, every dime..
They told me it was a crime

Do you remember?
Did it all go in vain..?

I looked in the light, I sat in your coal mine
The promise they made, I should keep?
Make sure that we would never meet!

I can't remember
The promise I made so deep

Tell me that past times won't die
Tell me that old lies are alive

Across darkened skies, I travelled without a light
I sank in the well, of my mind
Too deep, never to be found

I can't remember..
How could you be so vain?

Tell me that past times won't die
Tell me that old lies are alive
Love that expired too long time ago
Kills me, it thrills me

You have a new love and,
It looks good on you.
I have never wished you dead.. yet!

You can now have all the things
I could never give to you,
Look out the window: "C'est moi!"

I'm sorry, I am here
I'm not sure if it should bring you fear?
I whisper in your ear
Why is he in here?

While you are sleeping, I steal your earring
Light you one candle, this anger I handle..!

They said, I won't find you, but now, I'm beside you
I'm not all, that stable,
You should, know by now that you are mine!

Tell me that past times won't die
Tell me that old lies are alive

I tell you that past times won't die
I tell you that old lies are alive
Love due to expire too long time ago
Kills me, it will kill you too

Past times wont die
I tell you old lies are alive
Hate due to expire too long time ago
Kill me, please kill me before

I tell you that past times won't die
Found someone's music video, at least it has the song :/

End of this Chapter is a very emotional and kickass song, it's just a shame the voice acting at the start is pretty laughable. :(

The link I gave has that part cut out. It's not too bad, but isn't dark enough.

And I just remembered that Vienna Teng's Lullabye For A Stormy Night is very beautiful. I listen to it on nights when I can't sleep :3

'Recessional' by Vienna Teng. Almost painfully beautiful.

Quote:
It's so beautiful here, she says,
This moment now,
And this moment now.
And I never thought I would find you here,
Flannel and satin, my four walls transformed.
But she's looking at me, straight to center,
No room at all for any other thought.
And I know I don't want this.
I swear I don't want this.
There's a reason not to want this... but I forgot.

In the terminal, she sleeps on my shoulder,
Hair falling forward, mouth all askew.
Fluorescent announcements beat their wings overhead:
Passengers missing, we're looking for you.
And she dreams through the noise, her weight against me,
Face pressed into the corduroy grooves.
Maybe it means nothing,
Maybe it means nothing,
Maybe it means nothing, but I'm afraid to move.

And the words, they're everything and nothing.
I want to search for her in the offhand remarks:
"Who are you, taking coffee, no sugar?"
"Who are you, echoing street signs?"
"Who are you, this stranger in the shell of a lover,"
Dark curtains drawn by the passage of time.
Words, like rain, how sweet the sound.
Well, anyway, she says,
I'll see you around...
At risk of repeating Dannichu (you're reading my miiiind Dx), 'Lullabye for a Stormy Night' also comes very, very close. 'Never Ending Story' by Within Temptation is also beautiful.

Answer, period: Pachelbel's Canon in D Major.

Okay, for a more contemporary song... :B
Sister Hazel, "The Best I'll Ever Be". The piano accoustic version especially. Because Ken Block's voice is much more... raw, and the piano so simple but... pretty and sad beyond belief. At least to me. Yeah.
Here.
Here you go. :B

Quote:
Whoa, I miss you,
I miss being overwhelmed by you
And I need rescue,
I think I'm fading away...
And I keep thinking
That you'll wake me up,
With a whisper in my ear
I keep hoping that you'll sneak in my room

So I wait, and I wait,
And I run old scenes through my tired head
Of the days that we laid by the school, and said,
"Forever"--
Was that the best I'll ever be?

Whoa, I miss you,
I miss talking all night long with you,
And I need this to
Find a way to your home
Oh, well my love, can you hear?
Have I been hoping loud enough,
Wishing hard enough?
Can you see me,
When I'm asleep, all alone?
Alone...

So I wait, and I wait,
And I run myself in the same old circles
I sit, and I stare,
And I run old scenes through my weary head
Of the days that we laid by the school and said
"Forever"--
Was that the best I'll ever be?

Can't keep my hands from shaking,
I'm stumbling through the wreckage again-
But you're gone...

So I wait, and I wait,
And I run myself in the same old circles
I sit, and I stare,
And I run old scenes through my tired head
Of the days that we laid on our backs and said
"Forever"
Was that the best I'll ever be?
Was that the best I'll ever be?
Oh, was that the best I'll ever be...?

Probably Nightnoise's "No Room at the Inn." I don't know why, but every time I listen to a song I make up a story to go with it, usually involving Pokemon somehow. And the story for that one is so... sweet ;~; The first part involves the Lugia singing the first part of it to her love the Moltres as she dies for his sake, and right when it starts to go to the second part and her music fades away they almost manage to touch beaks in one last goodbye kiss, but don't quite make it and she dies, which bothers him so he won't leave her body. And then the last part involves him wishing on Jirachi, who passes it on to Mew, so that she gets brought to life again. I love it :D

I also like Metallica's "Orion," even though it's heavy metal. Hell, it's good anyway.

Neither of these songs have lyrics, anyway.

Default Preeeetty music

Ahahaha, what funny ideas of "pretty" music you have!
Well, that's what I always say. Sorry. But really, the things I have scrolled through and heard in this thread are nothing like the really beautiful pieces I know! They don't make you sad! They don't make you want to cry... they don't make you nostalgic... in fact a good few of them are happy...
Of course, people just think my taste is tasteless, so it's all good (:

I love pretty music... I collect pretty music...

What's the prettiest...?

Try the middle of the Largo from Dvořák's 9th... "From the New World" symphony. (That's the second movement. By the "middle", I mean the bit about 5 minutes and 19 seconds into that recording.)
That's one piece which struck me as having something genuinely beautiful in it...

Also started playing a piece recently in band called October (written by the up-and-coming modern composer Eric Whitacre). The first 40 seconds are really something, to begin with... and there's more of it later. And that neat euphonium solo.

Out of all the little pretty bits of pieces that hold their little spots in my heart, one of my favourites is out of Tchaikovsky's Marche Slave. (It occurs at 1:23 and again at 7:22.)

There are so many others, but I don't really have the time and patience to upload them all right now... but you can ask if you really want!

Right now, I'll just try to be a little more contemporary (some people see a name like Tchaikovsky and go "classical?! Ewwww!", I think.) so here are the few of the pretty SONGS I know. As in, with lyrics and things.

One two three. I found them via singing bits of random broadway musicals for about six years.

Five Folksongs for Soprano and Band has two pretty songs. The first two. Mrs. McGrath (So up comes Ted without any legs (: ) and All the Pretty Little Horses (slave woman has to abandon her own child in order to take care of her master's. That's pretty sad in my books).

IMO, the prettiest song (and my favrit liek ever lolol) is Celestial Soda Pop by Ray Lynch. It's not depressing or lyrical or whatever, but it's got the most amazing tune.

This. I used to get a reaction to it before, but I barely do anymore. I feel like I want to cry, but I can't, and my throat almost closes tight, at least that's what it feels like. I always think about New Hampshire, California, or the Great Depression. Be aware that the three names stated above aren't the real thing; they're just nicknames.

And that Pokémon "Together Forever" one comes in second. New Hampshire is the star of this one.

Oh! I have a better one!

Return to Pooh Corner by Kenny Loggins. It is one of the most comforting things in the world to me, because my mom always sang it to me when I was very little. <3 I also think that the lyrics are amazing.

Quote:
Christopher Robin and I walked along
Under branches lit up by the moon
Posing our questions to Owl and Eeyore
As our days disappeared all too soon
But I've wandered much further today than I should
And I can't seem to find my way back to the Wood

So help me if you can
I've got to get back
To the House at Pooh Corner by one
You'd be surprised
There's so much to be done
Count all the bees in the hive
Chase all the clouds from the sky
Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh

Winnie the Pooh doesn't know what to do
Got a honey jar stuck on his nose
He came to me asking help and advice
And from here no one knows where he goes
So I sent him to ask of the Owl if he's there
How to loosen a jar from the nose of a bear

It's hard to explain how a few precious things
Seem to follow throughout all our lives
After all's said and done I was watching my son
Sleeping there with my bear by his side
So I tucked him in, I kissed him and as I was going
I swear that the old bear whispered "Boy welcome home"

Believe me if you can
I've finally come back
To the House at Pooh Corner by one
What do you know
There's so much to be done
Count all the bees in the hive
Chase all the clouds from the sky
Back to the days of Christopher Robin
Back to the ways of Christopher Robin
Back to the days of Pooh

This is my current favorite song. I don't listen to it too often, it brings me quite close to tears. But it's beautiful.

Drowning Pool- "Bodies"

Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor

Beaten, why for (why for)
Can't take much more
Here we go here we go here we go, now

One
Nothing wrong with me
Two
Nothing wrong with me
Three
Nothing wrong with me
Four
Nothing wrong with me

One
Something's got to give
Two
Something's got to give
Three
Something's got to give now

Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor...

Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor...

Fall!

Push me again (again)
This is the end
Here we go here we go here we go, now

One
Nothing wrong with me
Two
Nothing wrong with me
Three
Nothing wrong with me
Four
Nothing wrong with me

One
Something's got to give

Three
Something's got to give now

Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor...

Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor

Skin to skin, blood and bone
You're all by yourself but you're not alone
You wanted in and now you're here
Driven by hate, consumed by fear

Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor

One
Nothing wrong with me
Two
Nothing wrong with me
Three
Nothing wrong with me
Four
Nothing wrong with me

One
Something's got to give

Something's got to give, it's you

Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor...

Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor

Hey...
Go!
Hey...
Go!
Hey...
Go!
Hey...
Go!



It is a great song, and suits my angry, violent nature perfectly.
