Writer's Block: More than words
Which song lyrics send shivers down your spine and really hit you emotionally?

Life Is Like A Boat by Rie Fu
"Nobody knows who I really am
I've never felt this empty before
And if I ever need someone to come along,
Who's gonna comfort me and keep me strong?"/
"I want you to know who I really am
I never thought I'd feel this way towards you
And if you ever need someone to come along,
I will follow you and keep you strong

And every time I see your face
The oceans heave up to my heart
You make me wanna strain at the oars
And soon I can see the shore"

We Are Pilots by the Shiny Toy Guns
"What about my problems?
The people try to solve them
I guess I'm under the weather
Cause no one else belongs here with me

Hello, Mother, some news for you
I'm really not that crazy
Hello, Father, I'm curious
Why you think there's something wrong with me
Sunday, I cried all night, and it hurt so bad
But if you try to understand, this is who I am"

A Better Son/Daughter by Rilo Kiley, take whichever lines you like. X_X

Butterflies and Come September by Natalie Imbruglia
"Raise your glass to sorrow
And drink to all the pain
Tie a silver ribbon around
The pieces that remain"

"Her violet sky will need to cry
Cause if it doesn't rain, then everything will die"/
"She will run, she's gonna drink that sun
Shining just for you instead of everyone
And so it goes, she'll stand alone
And try not to remember, come September"

My Lover's Box, Medication, and Drive You Home by Garbage.

"Between the walls
And darkened halls
Of doomed time
If I should die
Before I wake,
Then you'll know why"

"I wear myself out in the morning
You're asleep when I get home
Please don't call me self defending
You know it cuts me to the bone
And it's really not surprising
I hold a force I can't contain

Somebody get me out of here
I'm tearing at myself
I've got to make a point these days
To extricate myself
Somebody get me out of here
I'm tearing at myself
Nobody gives a damn about me
Or anybody else

And still, you call me codependant
Somehow, you laid the blame on me"

"Walk on shells tonight
Can't do right tonight
And you can't say a word, cause I leap down your throat
So uptight am I
I never said I was perfect,
But I can drive you home"

My Number, Superstar, Don't Confess, Wake Up Exhausted, Fix You Up, I Was Married, Knife Going In, and Soil, Soil by Tegan and Sara. Artist bias maybe, but still. =P Then again, maybe lyrics help the liking.
"He grabs me by the hand, drags me to the shore,
And says, 'Maybe you don't love me, but you'll grow to love me even more'"

"I am my angel, till death I do
I saw my first angel and it was you"

"Don't think I'll escape
How could I escape you?
Don't think I'll replace
How would I replace you?
And don't be so hard on yourself
You won't get better till you're worse"

"We're alone and we're happy
But there you are, angry with me
Are you all right?
I can stand up straight
I am all right
I can't get you off my mind"

"There's not a lot for you to give if you're giving in
There's not a lot for you to feel if you're not feeling it
You bring it up, you bring it in
And we'll get you fixed up in no time
This love is all I have to give"

"They seem so very tough (It's a lie, it's a lie)
They seem so very scared of us
I look into the mirror
For evil that just does not exist
I don't see what they see (Tell them that, tell them that)"

"If I don't recover
Sell this house and find something lost outside your window
Not forever
But on the night I die, I swear I'll sleep outside your window"

"I feel like a fool, so I'm going to stop troubling you
Buried in my yard, a letter to send to you
And if I forget or, god forbid, die too soon
I hope that you'll hear me, know that I wrote to you

All you need to say to me
All you need to say to me
Is call, and I'll be curled on the floor hiding out from it all
And I won't take any other call"

Which is really just for starters. *headdesk*
