I'll start....

I can't help about the shape I'm in
I can't sing
I ain't pretty
and my legs are thin
So don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to
All I have to do is revel in the everyday....then do it again tomorrow

They say every sin is deadly but I believe they may be wrong...I'm guilty of all seven and I don't feel too bad at all

    Mama told me when I was young
    Come sit beside me, my only son
    And listen closely to what I say
    And if you do this it'll help you some sunny day

    Oh, take your time don't live too fast
    Troubles will come and they will pass
    Go find a woman you'll find love
    And don't forget son there is someone up above

    And be a simple kind of man
    Be something you love and understand
    Baby be a simple kind of man
    Oh, won't you do this for me son if you can?

    Forget your lust for the rich man's gold
    All that you need is in your soul
    And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
    All that I want for you my son is to be satisfied

    And be a simple kind of man
    Be something you love and understand
    Baby be a simple kind of man
    Oh, won't you do this for me son if you can? Oh yes, I will

    Boy, don't you worry you'll find yourself
    Follow your heart and nothing else
    And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
    All that I want for you my son is to be satisfied

    And be a simple kind of man
    Be something you love and understand
    Baby be a simple kind of man
    Oh, won't you do this for me son if you can?

    Baby be a simple, be a simple man
    Be something you love and understand
    Baby be a simple kind of man

  • Excellent. also a good one for myself
    All I have to do is revel in the everyday....then do it again tomorrow

    From my youth, I've always felt this one

    Baby, do you understand me now
    Sometimes I feel a little mad
    But don't you know that no one alive
    Can always be an angel
    When things go wrong I seem to be bad
    But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
    Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood
    Baby, sometimes I'm so carefree
    With a joy that's hard to hide
    And sometimes it seems that all I have do is worry
    Then you're bound to see my other side
    But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
    Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood
    If I seem edgy I want you to know
    That I never mean to take it out on you
    Life has it's problems and I get my share
    And that's one thing I never meant to do
    Because I love you
    Oh, Oh baby don't you know I'm human
    Have thoughts like any other one
    Sometimes I find myself long regretting
    Some foolish thing some little simple thing I've done
    But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
    Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood
    Yes, I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
    Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood
    Yes, I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
    Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

    "Judge yourself if you feel the need
    Just let me known to be
    In search of the truth myself
    There is a drop of blood on the ground
    And it seems to me that it's not my kind
    And I can't be sure if its yours or mine."

    What's clean is pure, but hey
    I'm white on the outside, though I stray

    RadioHead: Creep

    When you were here before,
    Couldn't look you in the eye
    You're just like an angel,
    Your skin makes me cry

    You float like a feather
    In a beautiful world
    I wish I was special
    You're so fuckin' special

    But I'm a creep,
    I'm a weirdo
    What the hell am I doin' here?
    I don't belong here

    I don't care if it hurts,
    I wanna have control
    I want a perfect body
    I want a perfect soul

    I want you to notice
    when I'm not around
    You're so fuckin' special
    I wish I was special

    But I'm a creep
    I'm a weirdo
    What the hell am I doin' here?
    I don't belong here, ohhhh, ohhhh

    She's running out again
    She's running out
    She run run run run...
    run... run...

    Whatever makes you happy
    Whatever you want
    You're so fuckin' special
    I wish I was special

    But I'm a creep,
    I'm a weirdo
    What the hell am I doin' here?
    I don't belong here

    I don't belong here...

    Routine was the theme,... he'd wake up,..wash and pour himself
    Into uniform,... something he hadn't imagined being...

    As the merging traffic passed,... he found himself staring,..
    Down,... at his own... hands..
    Not remembering the change,... not recalling the plan,
    Was it...?

    He was okay,... but wondering... about wandering
    Was it age?... By consequence?... or was he moved by
    Sleight of hand?

    Mondays were made to fall,... lost on a road he knew by heart
    It was like a book he read in his sleep,... endlessly...
    Sometimes he hid in his radio,... watching others pull into their homes
    While he was drifting...

    On a line,... of his own,... off the line,... on the side
    Bye the by,.... as dirt turned to sand,
    As if moved by sleight of hand...

    When he reached the shore of his... clip-on world...
    He resurfaced to the norm
    Organized his few things,... his coat and keys...
    Any new realizations... would have to wait...
    Til he had more time,... more time...
    Time to dream,... to himself... he waves goodbye,
    To himself... I'll see you on the other side...

    Another man...moved by sleight of hand...
    "...Dimitri...He talks to me...'.."The Ghost of Greece..".
    "..That's One Happy Fuckin Ghost.."
    “..That came up on the Pillow Case...This is for the Greek, With Our Apologies.....”

    I'm told time and time again that I'm just like my old man. Physically, socially, and personally.

    I'm generally told this by my mother who is divorced from my dad... :?

    Another Neil one. This one always makes me think of my kids.


    I got to bet
    that your old man
    Became fascinated
    with his own plan
    Turned you loose,
    your mama too
    There wasn't a thing
    that you could do.

    But I got faith in you,
    It's a razor love
    that cuts clean through.
    I got faith in you,
    It's a razor love
    that cuts clean through.

    You really made my day
    With the little things you say

    Looking through
    the window at a silhouette
    Trying to find something
    I can't find yet
    Imagination is my best friend
    Got to look out for
    the greedy hand, greedy hand
    Make a living like a rolling stone
    On the road
    there's no place like home
    Silhouettes on the window.

    Who was it made
    your eyes flicker like that
    Tell me baby,
    how'd you get the knack
    You came to me with open arms
    And I really
    took you down the track

    Now all I've got for you,
    Is the kind of love
    that cuts clean through.
    All I got for you is razor love
    It cuts clean through.

    You really made my day
    With the little things you say

    Now I'm looking through
    the window at a silhouette
    Trying to find something
    I can't find yet
    Imagination is my best friend
    Got to watch out for
    the greedy hand, greedy hand
    Make a living like a rolling stone
    On the road
    there's no place like home
    Silhouettes on the window.

    You really make my day
    With the little things you say.
    "You're no help," he told the lime. This was unfair. It was only a lime; there was nothing special about it at all. It was doing the best it could.

    'There's a girl on a ledge, she's got nowhere to turn, cause all the love that she had was just wood that she burned.
    Now her life is on fire, it's no one's concern, she can blame the world or pray till dawn, but only love can break her fall.
    It's like she lost her invitation to the party on earth, and she is standing outside hating everyone here. Yeah she's her own disease, crying to her doll, but only love can break her fall.'

    Have always felt this song was a big accusatory finger pointed at me...

    AND :

    'I'm heading down a lonely highway, I'm running down a one-way street. All I wanna know, are you going my way ? Is there some place quiet where we can meet ? And friends they come, and friends they go, but you were always by my side, and where it all ends, I don't know, don't cry no more, just hold on tight.
    There was a time when I was desperate, living in a town without a name. And when things got so dark and desolate, you taught me how to hide my shame.
    And kings and queens and millionaires may never know what I have known, but thank the stars I'm the lucky one, thanks for the lessons that I have been shown.
    I feel rich, I feel power and security and when I'm weak, you are strong.
    Once in a lifetime, twice in eternity.
    And guess what ? Nothing else matters anyways.'
    (Social Distortion, Untitled ............... my favorite song ever).

    Was listening to this song today.  It is so definitely me:

    Beach Boys, "In My Room"

    There's a world where I can go and tell my secrets to
    In my room, in my room
    In this world I lock out all my worries and my fears
    In my room, in my room

    Do my dreaming and my scheming
    Lie awake and pray
    Do my crying and my sighing
    Laugh at yesterday

    Now it's dark and I'm alone
    But I won't be afraid
    In my room, in my room
    In my room, in my room
    In my room, in my room
    "Hate your job, love your stuff
    If you think that's living, you are
    Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong"

    Nice, Brian. (Good bump of an old thread, too.) 

    My contribution:

    A winter's day
    In a deep and dark
    December
    I am alone
    Gazing from my window to the streets below
    On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow
    I am a rock
    I am an island

    I've built walls
    A fortress deep and mighty
    That none may penetrate
    I have no need of friendship, friendship causes pain
    It's laughter and it's loving I disdain
    I am a rock
    I am an island

    Don't talk of love
    But I've heard the words before
    It's sleeping in my memory
    I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died
    If I never loved I never would have cried
    I am a rock
    I am an island

    I have my books
    And my poetry to protect me
    I am shielded in my armor
    Hiding in my room, safe within my womb
    I touch no one and no one touches me
    I am a rock
    I am an island

    And a rock feels no pain
    And an island never cries

    My shadow's side, so amplified
    Keeps coming back dissatisfied
    Elementary, son, but it's soul
    My love affair with everywhere
    Was innocent, why do you care?
    Someone start the car
    Time to go
    You're the best I know

    My sunny side has up and died
    I'm betting now where we collide
    The universe will shift into a low
    The travesties that we have seen
    Are treating you like Benzedrine
    Automatic laughter from a pro

    My, what a good day for a walk outside
    I'd like to get to know you a little better baby
    God knows that I really tried
    My what a good day for a take-out bride
    I'd like to say we did it for the better, oh

    I saw you there so unaware
    Those hummingbirds all in your hair
    Elementary, son, but it's soul
    The disrepair of Norma Jean
    Could not compare to your routine
    Ballerama beauty going toe-to-toe
    My, what a good day for a, let it slide
    I'd like to say we did it for the better, oh

    I thought about it and I brought it out
    I'm motivated by the lack of doubt
    I'm consecrated, but I'm not devout
    The mother, the father, the daughter, yeah

    Right on the verge, just one more dose
    I'm traveling from coast to coast
    My theory isn't perfect, but it's close
    I'm almost there, why should I care?
    My heart is hurting when I share
    Someone open up, let it show

    My what a good day for a, walk outside
    I'd like to think we did it for the better, oh
    I thought about it and I brought it out
    I'm motivated by the lack of doubt
    I'm consecrated but I'm not devout
    The mother, the father, the daughter

    Oh, you don't form in the wet sand
    You don't form at all
    Oh, you don't form in the wet sand
    I do
    Yeah
    You don't form in the wet sand
    You don't form at all
    Oh, you don't form in the wet sand
    I do
