lyrics in my life....

i love lyrics. i love that sometimes you feel like you're going through something NO ONE has ever gone through or thought. like the world is on our shoulders. and then you hear a song, and it hits you hard, gives you goosebumps. because hearing that song is proof that at least one other person has gone through what you're going through. and they survived. 

here are some i want to share. some that i love. it doesn't matter the song. doesn't matter the artist. what matters is that someone else has felt the same thing. 

--i thought i was doing it right bein' alone
i swore i'd never let somebody get close again
i was never gonna let my guard down, not for anyone
but there's a light in your eyes and it's got me movin' in
and tonight these walls are all comin' down
and my heart is open, i'm lettin' you in
cause you give me a reason
and the faith i've been needing to start again--

--slow to trust but i'm quick to love.
i push to hard and i give too much
i ain't saying i'm perfect.
but i'm saying i'm worth it.
now i'm standing here in front of you.
tell me boy, what are you gonna do?--

--cause you give me something.
that makes me scared, alright
this could be nothing
but i'm willing to give it a try
please give me something
cause someday i might know my heart--

--cause i'm not who i was
when i took my first step
and i'm clinging to the promise
you're not through with me yet
so if all of these trials
bring me closer to you
then i will walk through the fire
if you want me to--

--i wanna do something that matters
say something different
something that sets the whole world on it's ear
i wanna do something better, with the time i've been given
and i wanna touch a few hearts in this life
and leave nothing less than something that says
i was here--

--they say that time takes it's toll on a body
makes the young girls brown hair turn grey
honey i don't care, i'm not in love with your hair
if it all fell out, i'd love you anyways--

--i won't run when it looks like love
i can't spend another night alone
regretting what i've done
so i won't run--

--if you want to be happy for the rest of your life
never make a pretty woman your wife
go for my personal point of view
get an ugly girl to marry you--
