    What songs or lyrics say something about you? Whether it be just a point in your life, or maybe everything about it, list the songs or lyrics that describe you.

    Why, why, why-- by Billy Currington

    "Walkin' away, I saw a side of you
    That I knew was there all along.
    And that some-day I'd say good-bye to you
    'Cause one right can still make two wrongs.
    Not for each other, not from the start
    The diff'rence was day and night.
    My finest hour was spent here with you in the dark,
    Was just before I saw the light." From Walkin' Away by Clint Black

    Girl Next Door--By Saving Jane

    And finally....(for now anyway;) )

    I'm No Angel--Greg Allman Band

    Ben Kweller .. Thirteen

    We've been in the rain
    We've been on the mountain
    We've been round the fire

    In fancy hotels
    Drank water from farm wells
    We sang with the choir

    I kissed your dry lips
    We jumped off the high cliffs
    And splashed down below

    Skin to skin
    In the salty river
    Made love in the shadow
    Woooah ooh

    Read books to each other
    Read the mind of the other
    Flew one thousand jets

    We laughed and we cried
    At movies and real life
    At our ridiculous bets

    We danced in the moonlight at midnight
    We pressed against back doors and wooden floors
    And you never faked it

    And infrequently
    We ignored our love
    But we could never mistake it
    Oooh ooh

    We met on the front porch
    Fell in love on the phone
    Without the physical wreck

    You gave me the necklace
    That used to hang
    Around your mothers neck

    We questioned religions
    Fed bread to the pigeons
    We learned how to pray

    We stood by the ocean
    Turned our hearts in to one
    We laid in bed all day
    Heeey

    We skipped on the sidewalk
    Skipped stones on the water
    We skipped town

    We've seen the sunrise with new eyes
    We've seen the damage of gossip and true lies
    We've seen the sun go down

    Had passionate makeouts
    And passionate freakouts
    We built this world of our own

    It was in the back of a taxi
    When you told me you loved me
    And that I wasn't alone.

    Two songs I love and that kept me company in my mind when I was sick...simple in words and tune

    White Bird..................

    White bird,
    in a golden cage,
    on a winter's day,
    in the rain.

    White bird,
    in a golden cage,
    alone.

    The leaves blow,
    Across the long black road.
    To the darkened skies,
    in its rage

    But the white bird just sits in her cage,
    unknown.

    White bird must fly
    Or she will die

    White bird,
    dreams of the aspen trees,
    with their dying leaves,
    turning gold.

    But the white bird just sits in her cage,
    growing old.

    White bird must fly or she will die.
    White bird must fly or she will die.

    The sunsets come, the sunsets go.
    The clouds roll by,and the earth turns old.
    And the young bird's eyes do always glow.

    She must fly,
    She must fly,
    She must fly.

    White bird,
    In a golden cage,
    On a winter's day, in the rain.

    White bird,
    In a golden cage alone.

    White bird must fly or she will die.
    White bird must fly or she will die.
    White bird must fly or she will die.

    ----------------------------------------------------


    Hummingbird.................

    Oh hummingbird, mankind was waiting for you to come flying along.
    Heavenly songbird, we were so wrong. We've harmed you.
    Oh hummingbird, lend us your wings. Let us soar in the atmosphere of Abha.
    Lift us up to the heaven of holiness, oh source of our being, oh hummingbird.

    Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
    In you I've found a fragrance. I'll love you 'til I die.
    I just love you, love you, love you. I don't even know the reason why.
    Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
    The sweetness of your nectar has drawn me like a fly.
    I just love you, love you, love you. I don't even know the reason why. Now,
    Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.

    Haven't you noticed the days somehow keep getting longer?
    And the spirit voices whisper in us all.
    Haven't you noticed the rays? The spirit sun in stronger
    And a new day is dawning for us all.

    Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
    Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
    The draught of understanding; wisdom, peace and love is ours.
    Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.

    Soul Coughing - Sleepless

    I got the will to drive myself sleepless.

    So much time is cashed.
    So much smoke is wasted.
    Sudden disappearance
    In the air is thick and cool.
    I can't approach myself
    Skidding over this perdition
    And now I'm out on the verandah
    When I should have gone to school.

    I got the will to drive myself sleepless.

    Well I call for sleep,
    But sleep it won't come to me.
    Shuffling in the hallway,
    I can hear him on the stairs.
    I hear his lighter flicking.
    I hear the soft sigh of his inhale.
    And the whole width of my intentions
    He exhales into the air.

    I got the will to drive myself sleepless.

    Skeedunt, stunt the runt,
    Smoking buddha blunt.

    I got the will to drive myself sleepless.

    A little bit of guitar
    A little bit of truck
    A little bit of hound dog
    And a little bit of luck
    A little bit of Bacon
    A little bit of beans
    A little bit of you lovin’ up on me
    And a little bit of how it supposed to be
    A little bit of life

    A little bit of backseat
    A little bit of moon
    A little bit of radio, a goin’ boom boom boom
    A little bit of sugar
    A little bit of spice
    A little bit of nasty, A little bit of nice
    A little bit of how it supposed to be
    A little bit of life

    Chorus:
    I breath in
    I breath out
    Yes sleepin all night with the windows down
    Up in the mornin’ stirin around
    Drink a pot of coffee and I head off to town
    Work Work, Work
    All day long, crank it up, back it up, bring it on home
    Supper on the table and I eat me a bite,
    Then we snuggle on the porch by the pale moon light

    A little bit of me and you doin alright
    A little bit of life

    A little bit of tractor
    A little bit of farm
    A little bit of cornfield
    A little bit of barn
    A little bit of come on
    A little bit of play
    A little bit of yee haw in the hay
    A Dixie cup,
    A homemade wine
    A little bit of life

    *Chorus

    A little bit of back porch
    A little bit of swing
    A little bit of wind chimes goin ding a ling
    A little bit of TV
    A little bit of couch
    Popcorn smellin up the house
    Alomode on a little slice of homemade pie
    A little bit of Life

    *Chorus

    A little bit of me and you doin alright(2x)
    A little bit of life (2x)

    Yeah, a little bit of life

    A little bit of guitar
    A little bit of truck
    A little bit of hound dog
    A little bit of luck
    A little bit of backseat
    A little bit of moon
    A little bit of radio, boom boom boom
    A little bit of Bacon
    A little bit of beans
    A little bit of you lovin’ up on me
    And a little bit of come on
    A little bit of...

    Oh! and one of my fave songs...which also describes me: All I want is a life--tim McGraw

    "Wandrin' Star" from "Paint Your Wagon"

    I was born under a wandrin' star
    I was born under a wandrin' star
    Wheels are made for rolling, mules are made to pack
    I've never seen a sight that didn't look better looking back
    I was born under a wandrin' star

    Mud can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry
    Snow can burn your eyes, but only people make you cry
    Home is made for coming from, for dreams of going to
    Which with any luck will never come true
    I was born under a wandrin' star
    I was born under a wandrin' star

    Do I know where hell is, hell is in hello
    Heaven is goodbye forever, its time for me to go
    I was born under a wandrin' star
    A wandrin' wandrin' star

    (Mud can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry)
    (Snow can burn your eyes, but only people make you cry)
    (Home is made for coming from, for dreams of going to)
    (Which with any luck will never come true)
    (I was born under a wandrin' star)
    (I was born under a wandrin' star)

    When I get to heaven, tie me to a tree
    Or I'll begin to roam and soon you'll know where I will be
    I was born under a wandrin' star
    A wandrin' wandrin' star

    For some reason this also reminds me of Wino:eek:

    Hi LuckyStrike,

    Your song tells me something : I recall a western movie in which Lee Marvin was singing ' I was born under a wandrin' star '. Is it the same song ?

    Not sure there's an entire song that can describe a person. I could extract lines from them though which would be very accurate.....................

    "You gave me nothing now that's all I've got" from U2s 'One' to anyone who made a false promise of anything or told me I was cute but never backed it up.

    "If love is a drug then I don't need it" From the Verves 'This is music' explaining my opinions about drugs not being any substitute for anything - particularly love or companionship.

    Then there are certain lyrics that I like to turn on the person who sang them as if to say "Yeah - and perhaps you'd (meaning a representative of your grouping) like to set a practical example for a change" (read recent posts in other threads about this). It's questioning the integrity of a lyric that is supposed to sum up the human condition about certain situations.

    Important to remember here though is that you are you and a singer is them and although they might make accurate observations about life (sometimes even quite personal ones) they are just songs - and that is all. Having said that though it's still useful to have a well known line from a famous band or artiste to emphasise a point you want to make to people!
