Well... this one seems pretty appropriate for me. If you knew the story, you'd appreciate this... but it's a great song, regardless. You can get an MP3 (legal, too) from www.jasonmraz.com/audio.html

Jason Mraz- You and I Both

Was it you who spoke the words that things would happen but not to me

Oh things are gonna happen naturally

And taking your advice I'm looking on the bright side

And balancing the whole thing

But often times those words get tangled up in lines

And the bright lights turn to night

Until the dawn it brings

A little bird who'll sing about the magic that was you and me



Cause you and I both loved

What you and I spoke of

What you and I spoke of

Others only dream of the love that I love



See I'm all about them words

Over numbers, unencumbered numbered words

Hundreds of pages, pages, pages forwards

More words then I had ever heard and I feel so alive

Now you and I, you and I

Not so little you and I anymore

And with this silence brings a moral story

more importantly evolving is the glory of a boy



you and I both loved what you and I spoke of

and others just read of and if you could see now

well I'm already finally out of



and it's okay if you have go away

just remember the telephone works both ways

and if I never ever hear it ring

if nothing else I'll think the bells inside

have finally found you someone else and that's okay

cause I'll remember everything you sang



you and I both loved what you and I spoke of

and others just read of and if you could see now

well I'm already finally out of words.

This song depicts a woman who’s fed up in general with societal pressure. In our mind, she might also represent an artist who’s frustrated with the vapid and demeaning nature of what Joni Mitchell called the “star-maker machinery.” The woman says, “Tried to go the way you told me, but each time I got lost. The stairs didn’t lead me anywhere.”

So now she’s ready to find her own route, one that can get her to a place where something meaningful and authentic can be expressed. She’s going to take the fire escape up to the roof. This is a writing tool that we invented. We call it a “metaphor.” Pretty soon, everyone will be doing this, but that’s ok, we’re used to getting ripped off.

Up to the Roof- BMG & Tracy Bonham Signing

Oh I see
It's not for me
What I want
You haven't got

Try to use things you sold me
no matter what the cost
Try to go the way you told me
but each time I got lost.

The stairs didn't lead me anywhere

I'm taking the fire escape up to the roof
Don't care if it's not the way
you'll find the truth

Time to this climb to rise above

This room
and all of you
who say
I should
Do like
You would

Try to live the life you sold me
no matter what the cost
Try to walk the way you told me
but each time I got lost

The stairs didn't lead me anywhere

I'm taking the fire escape up to the roof
Don't care if it's not the way
You'll find the truth
And when I get up there
I don't know what I'll find
But I'd rather look at the sky
than wonder why I'd let you took my time

Time to make this climb to rise above

I'm taking the fire escape up to the roof
Don't care if it's not the way
You'll find the truth
And when I get up there
I don't know what I'll find
But I'd rather look at the sky
Than wonder why I'd let you take my time

Time to make this climb to rise above

Poe - Hey Pretty

Well it's 3 am, I'm out here driving again
Through the wicked winding streets of my world
I take a wrong turn - brake it - but I'm too far gone
I've got a siren on my tail, and that ain't the fine I'm looking for

I see a stairway so I follow it down into the belly of a whale
Where my secrets echo all around
You know me now, but to do better than that, you've got to follow me
Boy, I'm trying to show you where I'm at

Hey pretty, don't you wanna take a ride with me through my world?
Hey pretty, don't you wanna kick and slide with me through my world?

Well I've got a mind full of wicked desings
I've got a non-stop hole-in-my-head imagination
I can't forget I am a sole architect
I built the shadows here, I built the growl in the voice I fear
You know me now but to do better than that, you've got to follow me
Boy, I'm tryin' to show you where I'm at

Hey pretty, don't you wanna take a ride with me through my world?
Hey pretty, don't you wanna kick and slide with me through my world?
Hey pretty, my pretty baby, rock it through my world...


Hey now, can't you feel me longing? [Do you get the gist of the song now?]
Hey now, can't you feel me? [feel me now...]

Skillet: Invincible

I, I'm invincible
I'm indestructible
It's my destiny

I, I'm invincible
I'm unshakeable
Through the truth in my soul

You know you just can't kill a man when he's dead
You know the spirit survives (invincible)
You can't stop the advance of the Kingdom to come
You know the truth is alive (invincible)

To be invincible
Is unattainable
Without sacrifice

Feel, feel the birth inside
The life that cannot die
Are you invincible

You know you just can't kill a man when he's dead
You know the spirit survives (invincible)
You can't stop the advance of the Kingdom to come
You know the truth is alive (invincible)

Invincible-Invincible

You know you can't kill a man when he¹s dead
You know you can't

You know you just can't kill a man when he's dead
You know the spirit survives (invincible)
You can't stop the advance of the Kingdom to come
You know the truth is alive (invincible)

You know you can't kill a man when he's dead
