    I know this topic has been done many times, but I always like reading what lyrics have been meaningful to others.

    In tough times I know I have turned to music for solace, support, and letting off steam.

    For me, the song "Hideaway" by De Lacy (I know some of you see this type of song as a cheesey house anthem) has always been about being a strong individual (whereas in a song like "Independent Woman" by Destiny's Child, the only measure of independence is being able to "Buy my own diamonds and I buy my own rings")

    Hideaway

    I got a man who tries to run me
    That’s the way to make me runaway
    He don’t know he’s just a pushin me
    To a man who makes me happy

    I’m an independent woman
    I don’t need no man to take care of me
    Can’t nobody pay for my problems
    Cuz I supply my own security

    I need a h-h-h-hideaway
    Don’t make me runaway
    Listen to me
    Need a hi-h-h-hideaway
    Don’t make me runaway
    No no

    If it ain’t one thing it’s another
    Don’t ya get caught up in your two-time lovers
    Love will make you blind every time
    But now I need a little peace of mind

    My mistake was letting my guard down
    Setting myself up for this runaround
    Now you just don’t need to let me go
    Now I know you don’t have [something unintelligable]

    I need a h-h-h-hideaway
    Don’t make me runaway
    Sing it with me
    Need a hi-h-h-hideaway
    Don’t make me runaway
    Uh oh

    Fearless
    (Waters, Gilmour)


    You say the hill's too steep to climb
    Climb it.
    You say you'd like to see me try
    Climbing.

    You pick the place and I'll choose the time
    And I'll climb
    That hill in my own way.
    Just wait a while for the right day.
    And as I rise above the tree lines and the clouds
    I look down, hearing the sound of the things you've said today.

    Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd
    Smiling.
    Merciless the magistrate turns 'round
    Frowning.

    And who's the fool who wears the crown?
    And go down,
    in your own way
    And every day is the right day
    And as you rise above the fear-lines in his brow
    You look down, hearing the sound of the faces in the crowd.

    BBB.

    Love that song.
     
  5. Anywhere I find myself,
    On my own with no one else,
    Listening to the same old song
    All night long.

    Anytime I find myself,
    Wrestling with my mental health,
    Bout this or that or something else,
    Right or wrong

    I am one of the people
    One of the people
    One of the people
    One of the people

    I am one of the people
    One of the people
    One of the people
    One of the people


    From the Ministry of old fave.

    ...my nigga Dr.Dre came through with a gang and Tanqueray
    and a phat-ass J of some bubonic chronic that made me choke
    shit this ain't no joke
    I had to back up of it and set my cup down
    Tanqueray and chronic yeah I'm fuct up now

    But I'm still poppin', ain't no stoppin
    Dre came through with some bitches from Compton
    to serve me not with a cherry on top
    but when I bust my nut she's raisin' up off the cock
    don't get upset girl that's just how it go
    we don't love them ho's, I'm out tha do'

    cause I'll be

    rollin' down the street smokin' endo, sippin on Gin and Juice
    Laid back
    With my mind on my money and my money on my mind



    This song was the inspiration for many a drunken summer evening with the crew. We thought we were so hardcore, l'il north toronto punks running around with phat sacs of herb, 40oz of Tanqueray, yelling at girls...never getting them but always thinking we were the roughest of the roughnecks...before we drove our parents cars home, slept in beds our parents bought us, and asked our parents for the keys again the next day...damn that was some fun ass shit.
     
  7. In my heart,
    In my head,
    There's a place that only we can ever know....

    It is there
    That we meet
    That we can share ourselves and let our feelings show...

    So I sleep
    And I dream
    Of you turning crystal raindrops into snow.

    There I wait
    For your kiss
    And you breathe your breath back into me.

    Be as one
    Feel as one
    Breathe as one
    Love as one
    Be as one
    Feel as one
    Breathe as one
    Love as one
    Be as one
    Feel as one
    Breathe as one
    Love as one
    Be as one
    Feel as one
    Breathe as one
    Love as one.

    If you trip up babe when you run to fast
    I will be there to slow you down
    If you tumble
    If you die
    If I got to stay alive
    We got to keep it for love
    We got to keep it for love

    You give me
    The love that I need
    Lifting me up into the light
    To bring me back down to your paradise.

    I can see,
    You in me.
    I got you inside and out
    It's never, never too much, too much for me.

    Be as one
    Feel as one
    Breathe as one
    Love as one
    Be as one
    Feel as one
    Breathe as one
    Love as one
    Be as one
    Feel as one
    Breathe as one
    Love as one
    Be as one
    Feel as one
    Breathe as one
    Love as one

    If we could find a way
    To be as one
    Then we would never be lonely
    If you believe in me, be as one

    If we could find a way
    To be as one
    Then we would never be lonely
    If you believe in me, be as one

    Be as one
    Feel as one
    Breathe as one
    Love as one
    Be as one
    Feel as one
    Breathe as one
    Love as one
    Be as one
    Feel as one
    Breathe as one
    Love as one
    Be as one
    Feel as one
    Breathe as one
    Love as one
