What I feel for you
is a tangled web
built from everything
that you've said
every time
you tell me we're friends
& all I want is
to hear you say you love me again
& I love you better
but you loved her first
you choose the old scars
to stay in an old war
you want me here
you say as much
you say whatever you want
because this is your house
& this is your hunt.
Don't worry
this will only hurt like hell
I'm no stranger to it
I know the feeling well
if I were...

Written by Odette TCLilly
I'm sore, like the day after
I hit the ground, searching for
All the things and people I haven't found
I'm looking for the guy
But I like you my clementine
You are the question mark in my life so bleary
Pick up the phone and call me!
I smell, like the day before
I'm still not sure, running toward
A future familiar but insecure
I'm looking in the sky
If there's an answer I can find
I'm a deer in headlights, you are speeding toward me
Give me a little warning!
You stole, one whole year ago
You changed your tone, fighting for...

Written by Failure By Design MichaelMorgue
the vines weave their way along the ground
between the tombstones
blanketing those beneath the earth
in their warm embrace
though the town is dead and devoid of sound
songs of years gone by
dance through the air verse by verse
an enchanting sound
i walk carefully between the graves
mindful of where my feet are laid
silently wishing to be there with you
wishing to be in your arms safe from harm
and be your lover true
i was there the night that you died
amid the screams and all of those flashing lights
i was there the night that they...

Glad that you are gone//
From my life//

Ohhh no//
You didnt want to go//
You dirty little hoe//

All you wanted was//
To steal him from me//

There you are, smooth like wine, 
a true heroine  a wave in motion 
playing smooth melodies from your tambourine
the source of your vibrant baseline  
in all the acts you are the main enduring all the pain 
but on the other side of the coin 
you will forever shine

My city is all humor
She's nothing but a good time
And people get nervous
Looking for more
No longer human
Can't see the signs of life
Must be a near death experience
I used to know virtue
Revere the Greeks and Romans
One government at a time
My hands stay cold
No longer human
Can't see the signs of life
Must be a near death experience
Plastic outweighs guilt
Manmade hopes triumph overall
Devotion to new machines
That flips our blood
You gotta let me know
If we aren't denser
Then...

It's six am I'm waking up from night
Sitting at the kitchen table
Thought I'd never see the light
With nothing else to do
But stare at a bowl of fortunes that never came true
I'm here and you're home
I hate we're both alone
I'll hope for the best
Say happy anniversary over the phone
And wonder if this job is worth all the stress
You're my rose in a field of daisies
After all these years you still drive me crazy
Never want to let you go, always want you to know
You're my everything
Our love is how I survive
Sometimes...

Well its happening again
I have just lost my bestfriend
But not in the way
Where they cannot stay
Leaving alone
Ditching me for other friends
That's where my friendships always end
It started on a Sunday night
We didn't even have to fight
Saying you'd get me at ten
Another lie
Again and again
Then the next day I'm ignored
And I really have implored
I'd really like to say.
Fuck you Josh for leaving me
You can shove it up your ass
Cause my anger's reached it limit
You can shove it up your ass...

DU Poetry : Song Lyrics Poems

Published on 25th June 2015 2:08am
Written by NomahAsitori LunaObscura
I haven't felt this good since I died, waking up in the light
With snakes still biting at my ankles
Deaf to the noise, growing immune to the poison
Muse on my shoulder showing me the way home
I never found the road though, can't claim I navigate
If not for Trismegistus I'd have embraced Hecate
The way I made it this far is by the grace in chaos
Like I was lost in the dark and wandered into a seance
Pray to all you don't trace my steps
Hell, keep walking on eggshells
I'm one wink, just a slip behind Death
Wishing he would trim his coattails

Written by NomahAsitori LunaObscura
Give a god your bones, bury your head
Indentured to the skull
Singing prophecies in B flat
But you don't know your own tongue
It's all adding up
Count the days, start watching the sun
Cast aside your sum
As we dequantify what's 'enough'
Even though we're born into sin, sands shift
The winds of change chip away at unseen green acres
I only know the cowards way in, to this planet
And have no time to match wits with mapmakers
Give a dog your home, surrender your bed
You wicked soul, let me guess, you're restless?
Burden borne upon...

Written by Gersain_Flores
Trying to apply these empty Remedies
To cure the pain that I can’t flea
And the horrors that won’t let me be
Spent a lifetime wondering where my lover is
In hindsight could I have been more oblivious
But yet what I would do for another kiss
Losing you wasn’t in the plan…
Walking on the beach on those sunny days
Making fun of you doing your funny face
Those memories are now the only thing we share
Words were said and our demons shown
Automatically triggering a nightmare
Did you really think we could do this on our own?

Through the door into summer
I gotsta go
Wave your hands in the air
Feel the flow
The word, No
Ain't in my vocabulary
But don't say, Yes
Say, Ho
Like so, see?
Hollaback if your over there
'Cuz there's a party going over here
Answer the call
Shake your booties
Bump that rump
Twerk your rear
Aight, Ladies?
So many wrongs don't make it right
Can't resist all these thongs
Disappearing deep into the crack of dawn
Where we endlessly party on through the night
Dirty dancing to filthy slut mouthed songs
As Nicki and...

Written by Melodya
Quante volte mi sono chiesta se
C’è qualcosa dentro di te
Che ti fa vedere un’amabile me
E per quante volte i nostri sguardi si sono incrociati
Le nostre mani si sono toccate
Tutti questi giorni passati fra amici
I ricordi che non svaniscono mai
Le stelle che illuminano l’anima
Vorrei poterti dire quello che sento
Ma so già che non puo essere lo stesso per te
Forse sarebbe meglio non vedersi più
Ma questa amicizia vale di più del dolore
Il destino ci ha fatto incontrare
E passare momenti bellissimi insieme
Nonostante tutti gli...

Verse 1-
I'm a product of a logger
And bartender
I'm an American first line defender
I wear that uniform proud
Stand my ground
Never back down
Fight for what is right
Chorus-
I'm a warrior
For the red white and blue
Stand tall
Stand true
I proudly salute that flag
That so many have died to defend
Talking down about it
Ought to be a sin
Remember these words that I say
Cuz I'll defend till my dying day
Verse 2-
I've spent a year in that sand
With my brothers and sisters
Fighting for Uncle Sam...

[Intro;]
I started thinking more for myself
wasn't eating the lies I was being fed
it's then family and others said that I got evil
but humanity is likely to get confused
when I say I easily fall in love with words
not people
[Verse 1;]
She says she can't believe I downloaded the song onto my phone
but listening to Britney Spears
and Iggy Azalena's Pretty Girls tune
there's one line Britney says that
makes her look bad
and that's men buzzing around her like flies
Only thing I know they buzz around is shit

Emotionally fucked up
Walking on this narrow line
Between life and death
A first cry gives us life
Do we stop living
When we stop crying?
There’s gotta be
A reason for all the pain
Chorus:
Built these walls around my dying heart
Now I feel them crumbling down
Used to find strength in the tears I cried
Now my eyes are dried out
What am I fighting for
When everything’s the same as before
Lost myself somewhere
Along the way many years ago
And I don’t know where I belong
Or where it all went wrong
Keep smiling...

Intro:
You struggle with the mirror,
and I suffer my obsession.
1st verse:
You are the light.  They’ve shown me.
You are the One, they said.
I wait for you to touch me,
and raise me from the dead.
I fall into the shadows
bathing in the light you bring,    and
gaze skyward at the scene. Worth
my offering?
1st chorus:
God-goddess Hollywood, why do you feign the injured
when the graven image of you calls for all to worship?
I follow you, but you ignore me, so your crucifixion
might have you know the...

I feel dark today
but where's the change in that?
Stayed in bed today
how can I make sense of that?
It was sunshine today
but in my head it rained
I'm so tired today
but where's the change in that?
I feel wrong today
but where's the change in that?
Couldn't cry today
how can I make sense of that?
I stayed curled in a ball
sometimes I feel small
I'm so tired today
but where's the change in that?
Everything's exhausting
even writing these words down
& just what is it costing
to keep wearing this crown...
