these are the lyrics to a song i written back in 2001 - the track is on our website www.heavenstereo.net



The sky, It looked so blue this morning
So clear, that I tried to swim
But Ill need some love to help me
And shes not the parachute I think she is
<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />
The ground it looked so grey this morning
So dirty, that I tried to wash
But I still need some love to help me
Because she is not the parachute I think she is

Last night you held me in a way that let me fall
But never hit the ground.
And as your eyes shine blue from black and white photographs
I realise, I havent found you yet
Shes not the parachute I think she is.
And Im still heading, heading for the ground

The sky will still be blue tomorrow
So clear that Ill try to swim
And Ill still need some love to help me
Because shes not the parachute I think she is

And when I find her Ill forget you
And well dive into the stars
Theyll say I hate to say that I told you so
But shes not the Parachute you think she is

the lyrics are pretty self explanatory i feel.

This is song i started to write about my little sis. It's a soppy one.


Like a flower I watch you beauty grow,
By each day,
Growing more amd more and more.


And when I cry, cry,cry,
It's you that wipe my tears....away.


I haven't finished it yet. At the moment i'm at the stage where I can't finish a song. I write lots of beginnings but no endings.


Another song i started did finish it but can't remember the ending.


Don't look in my eyes,
The hurt's still strong.
You walked out and left me dry,
So much for a sweet goodbye.
You left your coffee stain on the kitchen floor,
As a souvenir and made my tears roll.


You've built your walls now,
I can't tear them down.
Let me in through the crack,
Back inside the warm.
But the walls growing bigger,
Keeping me out alone in the cold.

Another song is about losing someone to death but then being spritually meeting them again and wanting them back here with you.


Embrace.


All alone in a place,
No-one there to wipe your face,
The tears roll down,
Through the walls.
Memories whisp down cold stairs,
Filling gaps in lost prayers,
Running from the cold.


Years fly my each day,
Taking time to lose their way,
In a land of memories gone.


Dreams shattered to pieces,
Floating along in a daze,
Screams drifting by,
In the air.
Cries from a child,
Echo in the wind,
Shiver through the leaves
To speak.


I feel like air,
Drifting away.
Hold me there,
Take my hand with you
Lead me the way.
Show me the dreams,
That I long to see,
Long to grasp.


Float like a leaf in the sky
Falling to ground.
Falling to ground with me.

Hey every1 its Lynchpin here (formerly fondusquirrell)! Anywayz, here arethelyrics for my own song "Monsters"


Monsters.


Verse 1


Take heed of how you're walking home,


There's Monsters everywhere.


And I'm not sure how to fight back.


It's not easy being this scared.


Yourwisdom and your crosses,


They won't do you much good.


Your brain is now wide open,


just likeyou knew it would


Chorus 1


See what I'm tryin to do in vain,


Is fighting to explain,


The way I feel (the way young lovers do).


We've crossed the river, now for the sea,


Dealt with you, but not with me.


Coz you hate love and I-


Hate Monsters too.


Verse 2


Coz you and I both know, that Monsters can't be taught,


That love is very fragile, but it cannot be bought.


And hope and celebration vanish into space


When the darkness closes in, and the Monster rears his face.


And freedom? Freedom?Just a figment of imagination


And the hardest part of all this.. is that realisation.


Chorus 2


And as I see you now with him, your face locked in a grin,


Feeling all the things young lovers do


And now the river and the sea, are both distant memories


Coz you're in love and I-


See you now with him, your face locked in a grin,


The Monster's got his claws back into you.


And now the river and thesea, are just clouded memories,


Coz you're in love and I-


Hate Monsters too.

hey guys, this one is called Feast: you can listen to it at www.adamwhiting.netif you like. I appreciate any feedaback.


thanks,
Adam


How do I keep my dignity
After I've fallen at your feet?
How do I follow and act like him,
Should I bleed to feed the deep?
I confess, it was me
Who felt the need to leave you in a heap.
I didn't come for my salvation,
I only came for the feast.


You keep your dreams on the highest shelf,
As far as you can from yourself.
Out of sight, you say I am out of my mind.
But you forgot how that felt.
And when you left me behind you,
Did you turn to watch me fall?
You say I was your fool,
To think you needed me at all.


And my mind makes ghosts from the breeze.
If I run they start to chase me.
If I turn to you they'll take you back down.
Until you release me, release me, release me.


You say my madness amuses you,
That I haven't been outside in three days.
You say I dropped your ball,
And just let it roll away.
And I know it doesn't surprise you,
You've known from the start,
There's so much of me confined in you,
And so much of you in the poem.


You can't bring it up,
What you're hiding from me,
You're keeping me hooked,
By depriving me.
My tantrum face is turning blue,
But you're calling my bluff.
And I keep asking for more,
When I've had more than enough.


And my mind makes ghosts from the breeze.
If I run they start to chase me.
If I turn to you they'll take you back down.
Until you release me, release me, release me.

Sold


I've been away
I've seen the sun at dawn, on the ocean
I've seen the moon
look like a plate so high, in a cloudless sky
I've tasted things
straight from your dreams so sweet
I've seen a face to break your heart in two, cause it ain't lovin' you


and I have been right to the snow, it don't seem so white no
and I have been right to the sun, it don't seem so bright


but I am sold
on this feeling inside my heart
I am sold
on being inside your arms

am I not your rock
am I not your roll
am I not your soul


I've cried out
on a mountain and heard my reply
I've dived down
into the ocean so deep, that there is no light
I've heard a song
that raised the goosebumps on my neck
I've done things
I've had dreams, so many dreams


and I have been right to the snow, it don't seem so white no
and I have been right to the sun, it don't seem so bright


but I am sold
on this feeling inside my heart
I am sold
on being inside your arms


You can listen to it at www.justinthorne.com'Sold' won track of the day at Garageband.com earlier this year...


Cheers
