Favorite line from a song..
August 5, 2012 9:35pm CST
I find music lyrics to be inspiring sometimes and other times they help you cope with life. The song called " Round here" by The Counting Crows has a line that I can very much relate to. The line is : " She knows that she's more than just a little misunderstood, she has trouble acting normal when she's nervous". I can relate to this line in the sense that I do have trouble socializing with people because of trust issues, so those who don't know me probably see me as not being "normal" due to my distance or seeming nervous all the time. Do you have a line from a song that you enjoy or you can relate to? What is it? Thanks for commenting.

I actually have a few. When I'm in a mood to be "reckoned with" it's got to be a line from Idiot, a song by Lisa Marie Presley "So there you have it, I hope you can tell, I'm no referral you can 'em call hell, you're an Idiot and I hate your guts." Then I may be a bit better mood, maybe feeling some old time spirit move me and I want to hear her daddys beautiful voice, and I love the line in Elvis Presleys song Help Me, in which it says, "With a humble heart on bended knee, I'm begging you please, help me."

''Oh no it's raining again'' from Supertramp. It's not really a line I can ''relate to'' but it's rather like an earwig that always comes to mind when, well, it's raining again lol. But that doesn't mean that I don't like rain at all :D ''We'll never be apart'' is a line I can relate to I guess. I don't know if there's an orginal song but it was a highscore theme from an old C64 game (the game itself I cannot relate to though ;-): http://remix.kwed.org/index.php?search=never+be+apart btw, song lyrics are usually written with the purpose that people can relate to it. Often it's the reason of their success, not just the music

There are some lines I do identify myself with. First of all, I'm going to paraphrase a Hungarian musical song: it's about that sometimes you are longing for escape really far away, but in the end, you're going to stay here, because you belong here and you have a mission on Earth... now that's something I feel loads of times. Sometimes I want to live in a whole another realm, because the world seems too much for me and too cruel, but I always realize I belong here. Other lines: well, basically the whole song Run for your life from Matt Cardle, but I'm going to write some: "You need somebody who likes themselves, who lives for life, and never calls for help, you need somebody who walks you back, someone who loves you too before you ask You’re worth more, you’re worth more than this You can take a leap without the risk There’s no time, there’s no time for this Take your love and start again So run for your life, run for your life If you leave me behind, you'll get there in time" I feel this insecure about myself, and even if my boyfriend loves me and I love him back, I wonder why he loves me, because I can be really a girl with a really low self-esteem and always second guessing myself. Also, Salem Al Fakir's Bloody Breakfast: Cut your heart out with a saber Slice it up and put it on a plate Serve it with the morning paper Don't forget the cool refreshing milkshake Pass it on around the table Let them all have a sniff and taste If they like it they will lable it From 1 to 10, there's no room for mistakes That is so true about people labeling you and seeing you as an item and as something they have to grade instead of a person.

The interesting thing with songs is that sometimes the lyrics seem to really talk to me and other times the same song will just pass by. I love certain bands and whole songs but it depends on my mood. Right now I just heard the Michael Bubble song and it is just perfect - It's a new dawn, it's a new day, and I am feeling good.

Hi Jshean20 For me I like Count on Me by bruno Mars- the chorus of the song goes like this: "you can count on me like 1,2,3 I'll be there, and i know when I need it I can count on you like 1,2,3 and you'll be there, cause that's what friends are supposed to do,oh,yeah" I love this song because it reminds me the value of friends in our life...

Hello Jshean, I have to agree with you. Music can help in many ways. When my family was having a lot of issues the song "Runaway Train" by Soul Asylum was what I listened to a lot. I actually listened to a lot of their songs but that song helped me cope. I cannot say there was a certain line that I felt connected too, but the song itself. I also like the song Highway 20 Ride, by The Zac Brown Band. I am divorced and we have kids. This makes me realize that it is so hard not to be their at all times for my kids,but when they are here to really make them the best that I can.

Yes Jshean. I have a lot of favorite songs so far. One of those is the song of Miley "The Climb." My favorite line in this song is "There's gonna be another mountain, I'm always gonna wanna make it move..." I can relate to this song because as for me we should never give up on any battle in this life.
