PostSubject: your favorite songs   Fri Feb 01, 2008 9:33 am

this one here is very special to me, in fact, my will stipulates that this be played at my wake.

for those of you who are not irish, a wake is the party before your funeral, consisting of alot of drinking, singing, even a bit o' dancing and fighting if the situation calls for it. As per tradition i will be laid out on a table, with a bottle of whiskey at my right hand and my family and friends drinking to my memory.

anyway, here is the song "Whistles the Wind" by Flogging Molly

Whistles the wind, blowing my way
Sweeping me back, back here to stay
Can winners be losers running on the same track?
Some head for glory, others we crash

Well it breaks my heart to see you this way
the beauty in life, where's it gone?
And somebody told me, you were doing okay
Somehow I guess they were wrong

My isolation, now there's a sobering thought
A minute alone, a lifetime too long
See the face in this mirror, so pale it could crack
Desperately wanting the color it lacks

Well it breaks my heart to see you this way
The beauty in life, where's its gone
And somebody told me, you were doing okay
Somehow I guess they were wrong

So you drank with the lost souls for too many years
tied to their ankles now crippled with fear
Never been righteous, though seldom we're wrong
Life's only life with you in this song

Now there's an ocean between
Where I am and where I want to be
So you prayers in doubt, doubt not for me

Well it breaks my heart to see you this way
The beauty in life, where's it gone?
And somebody told me, you were doing okay
Somehow I guess they were wrong

Well it breaks my heart to see you this way
The beauty in life, where's it gone?
And somebody told me, you were doing okay
Somehow I guess they were wrong

Whistles the wind
Whistles the wind
Whistles the wind
Whistles the wind

Oh you'll find your way out, but there's no going now
Every woman and child drags you down for the dive
It's not safe being free, can't give back what you feel
You said you'll always be in heaven with me

That's a really nice song, Akaron. I wouldn't have a clue as to my favourite. I more into rock these days... gothic rock too.

*shrug* Sometimes I'll end up loving a song I hated a few years back... it just depends with me. I just don't know what it depends on Very Happy

a song from a band that always makes me think of wraith

Nightwish-Bye Bye Beautiful

Finally the hills are without eyes
They are tired of painting a dead man's face red
With their own blood

They used to love having so much to lose
Blink your eyes just once and see everything in ruins

Did you ever hear what I told you
Did you ever read what I wrote you
Did you ever listen to what we played
Did you ever let in what the world said
Did we get this far just to feel your hate
Did we play to become only pawns in the game
How blind can you be, don't you see
You chose the long road but we'll be waiting

Bye bye beautiful

Jacob's ghost for the girl in white
Blindfold for the blind
Dead siblings walking the dying earth

Noose around a choking heart
Eternity torn apart
Slow toll now the funeral bells

"I need to die to feel alive"

Did you ever hear what I told you
Did you ever read what I wrote you
Did you ever listen to what we played
Did you ever let in what the world said
Did we get this far just to feel your hate
Did we play to become only pawns in the game
How blind can you be, don't you see
You chose the long road but we'll be waiting

Bye bye beautiful

It's not the tree that forsakes the flower
But the flower that forsakes the tree
Someday I'll learn to love these scars
Still fresh from the red-hot blade of your words

...How blind can you be, don't you see...
...that the gambler lost all he does not have...

Did you ever hear what I told you
Did you ever read what I wrote you
Did you ever listen to what we played
Did you ever let in what the world said
Did we get this far just to feel your hate
Did we play to become only pawns in the game
How blind can you be, don't you see
You chose the long road but we'll be waiting

Bye bye beautiful
