The Song That Inspired You Through A Hardship

Discussion in 'Chit Chat' started by TraderTactics, Apr 6, 2010.

  1. Was there a song that really helped you or inspired you through your hardship?

    While I was going through a lot with my financial problems there are a couple of songs that kind of inspired me to go on and fight... one is What Faith Can Do by Kutlass and the other one is I'm Movin On by the Rascal Flatts.

    What was your inspiration song?
     
  2. It was many years ago that I became what I am
    I was trapped in this life like an innocent lamb
    Now I can never show my face at noon
    And you'll only see me walking by the light of the moon.

    She walks everyday thru' the studios of Nimman
    She's innocent and young, from a family of NO means
    I've stood many times outside her window at night
    To struggle with my instinct in the pale lamplight

    How can I be this way when I pray to god above
    I must love what I destroy and destroy the thing I love.
    No you'll never see my shade nor hear the sound of my feet
    While there's a moon over Nimman Street. (adaptation)

  3. You said we're thru' before
    You walked out on me before
    I tried to tell you but you didn't want to know
    This time you're different .....

    I wait as the days go by
    I long for the nights to go by
    I hear the knock on my door that can never come
    I hear the telephone that hasn't rung


    (the guitar riff @ 1:42 just deepens the agony :D )

  4. Nice thread, like the idea...

    Through my addictions;

    "Sooner Or Later"

    I want a normal life
    just like a new born child
    I am a lover hater
    I am an instigator
    You are an oversight
    Don't try to compromise
    I'll learn to love to hate it
    I am not integrated

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Just call my name
    You'll be okay
    Your scream is burning through my veins

    Sooner or later you're gonna hate it
    Go ahead and throw your life away
    Driving me under, leaving me out there
    Go ahead and throw your life away

    You're like an infantile
    I knew it all the while
    You sit and try to play me
    Just like you see on tv
    I am an oversight
    Just like a parasite
    Why am I so pathetic
    I know you won't forget it

    [Pre-chorus]

    Sooner or later you're gonna hate it
    Go ahead and throw my life away
    Driving me under, leaving me out there
    Go ahead and throw my life away

    Sooner or later you're gonna hate it
    Go ahead and throw our life away
    Driving me under, leaving me out there
    Go ahead and throw our life away

    Throw our life away
    Ooooo
    Throw our life away

  5. This isn't the most uplifting or happy song, I listened to it a lot after my father passed...

    "Monday Song"

    Life is lost for me, and everything I dream
    Picture me above the sky on this half day closing
    Ride the wave say goodnight drifting slowly
    I see the world in your eyes it's relentless
    When I feel the burn in my life God please end this
    It's not so easy can you fix me and wipe it all away
    Wipe it all away, you wash it all away
    Picture me inside the sun, I'm dried and burning
    As I sink like a stone the world keeps turning
    I'll hold you close to myself you complete me
    A part of my life I can't fill, please release me now
    It's not so easy, and wipe it all away, can you fix me, and wipe it all away
    So sadistic, and wipe it all away, how you'd bleed me, and wash it all away
    Follow a heart in vain you follow and start again
    Life is lost for me now

    Sorry only video I could find, song sounds much better on album
     
  6. This is kind of where I am lately...

    Nine Inch Nails
    "Right Where It Belongs"


    See the animal in his cage that you built
    Are you sure what side you're on?
    Better not look him too closely in the eye
    Are you sure what side of the glass you are on?
    See the safety of the life you have built
    Everything where it belongs
    Feel the hollowness inside of your heart
    And it's all
    Right where it belongs

    [Chorus:]
    What if everything around you
    Isn't quite as it seems?
    What if all the world you think you know
    Is an elaborate dream?
    And if you look at your reflection
    Is it all you want it to be?
    What if you could look right through the cracks?
    Would you find yourself
    Find yourself afraid to see?

    What if all the world's inside of your head
    Just creations of your own?
    Your devils and your gods
    All the living and the dead
    And you're really all alone?
    You can live in this illusion
    You can choose to believe
    You keep looking but you can't find the woods
    While you're hiding in the trees

    [Chorus:]
    What if everything around you
    Isn't quite as it seems?
    What if all the world you used to know
    Is an elaborate dream?
    And if you look at your reflection
    Is it all you want it to be?
    What if you could look right through the cracks
    Would you find yourself
    Find yourself afraid to see?

    I was at this concert, I bawled so hard...
     
  7. A song for RCG and I (and I'll quit posting for now:))

    Nine Inch Nails
    "We're In This Together"

    I've become impossible
    holding on to when
    when everything seemed to matter more
    the two of us
    all used and beaten up
    watching fate as it flows down the path we
    have chose

    you and me
    we're in this together now
    none of them can stop us now
    we will make it through somehow
    you and me
    if the world should break in two
    until the very end of me
    until the very end of you

    awake to the sound as they peel apart the skin
    they pick and they pull
    trying to get their fingers in
    well they've got to kill what we've found
    well they've got to hate what they fear
    well they've got to make it go away
    well they've got to make it disappear

    the farther I fall I'm beside you
    as lost as I get I will find you
    the deeper the wound I'm inside you
    for ever and ever I'm a part of

    you and me
    we're in this together now
    none of them can stop us now
    we will make it through somehow
    you and me
    if the world should break in two
    until the very end of me
    until the very end of you

    all that we were is gone we have to hold on
    when all our hope is gone we have to hold on
    all that we were is gone but we can hold on

    you and me
    we're in this together now
    none of them can stop us now
    we will make it through somehow
    you and me
    even after everything
    you're the queen and I'm the king
    nothing else means anything

  8. The Song That Inspired You Through A Hardship
    -------------------------------

    With enough Budweiser and my piano I wrote my own. It's been a while but your question brought back memories. I did have some favorite C&W but those hard times were like it happened to somebody else.
