    Mine is :If a man could be two places at one time,
    I'd be with you.
    Tomorrow and today, beside you all the way.
    If the world should stop revolving spinning slowly down to die,
    I'd spend the end with you.
    And when the world was through,
    Then one by one the stars would all go out,
    Then you and I would simply fly away.....

    It's because this really touches my heart

    I've always liked the Telly Savalas "Kojak" version.

    Feel the breeze?
    Time's so near you can almost taste the freedom
    There's a warm wind from the south
    Hoist the sail and we'll be gone
    By morning, this will all seem like a dream
    And if I don't return to sing the song, maybe just as well
    I've seen the news and there's not much I can do alone

    Queensryche/Empire/Anybody Listning?

    Why? Why does anything speak to us. It touches my heart. The way it's sung is both melancholy and hopeful.

    Wow ok I wasn't familiar with this band, I had to look it up and see what the song was like, it's a pretty good song kind of put you in the mind of Rush or Styx whom I'm a big fan of and I'm always on the lookout for new to me but old to some music. Thanks for sharing this :D

    Long story short, bought Operation Mindcrime , only did listen to it once with my ex wife, we broke it off seven years ago, she and I lost touch for a long time, used to be really comminted to each other.

    Guess what I been there and done that and I found everything that happens is for a reason, but for the most part it made me a better person in the end compared to what life would have been like if I didn't go through the ordeal.

    Whatever he said.

    The verse is the bit that repeats itself right? This song repeats itself but it's different so I don't know if I can pick any one bit as a verse. It has a lot of meaning to me though so can I choose the whole song? It was originally written and preformed by David Bowie but I'd never heard it until I listened to the Nirvana cover. So here's the story then. I'd pretty much thrown my life away with things I can't really mention here. I wouldn't be lying if I said I'd said "I wish I was dead" a few times. After years of depression I got diagnosed with cancer. Funny how the good wishes never come true right lol. I won't lie, a bit of me thought that this was my way out. One day I woke up slightly happier than the last though and went for the chemo. Despite completely draining my body and mind of every little bit strength it had I could see the end of the tunnel after 15 months. That's when my uncle bought me a few CD's. Maybe I'd spoken to him when I wasn't with it but I don't think I did. Anyways, he gave me the only two nirvana albums I didn't already have. Honestly I finished chemo happier than I'd ever been in my life. I've been unhappy since but depressed no. Anyways the song's called The Man Who Sold The World. I honestly don't know what Bowie meant when he wrote it but I've always taken it as finding the guy I was before the shitstorm. Anywho without further ado here's the lyrics ;)

    We passed upon the stair
    We spoke of was and when
    Although I wasn't there
    He said I was his friend
    Which came as a surprise
    I spoke into his eyes
    I thought you died alone
    A long long time ago

    Oh no, not me
    We never lost control
    You're face to face
    With the man who sold the world

    I laughed and shook his hand
    And made my way back home
    I searched for form and land
    For years and years I roamed
    I gazed a gazeless stare
    We walked a million hills
    I must have died alone
    A long, long time ago

    Who knows?
    Not me
    I never lost control
    You're face to face
    With the man who sold the world
    Who knows?
    Not me
    We never lost control
    You're face to face
    With the man who sold the world

    That's a great song by both artists and may they both rest in peace. I kind of knew you was talking about this song When you mention David Bowie and Nirvana, but I kind of like Nirvana's live version preferably. But isn't it strange that music can take your mind off a tragic situation or incident and soothe the body just for those few minutes as if nothing had happened at all. I hope and pray for all cancer survivors because I have had a few people that that dreadful disease has taken away from me forever. I commend you for sharing your story and your song.

    Question!
    System Of A Down
    Sweet berries ready for two
    Ghosts are no different than you
    Ghosts are now waiting for you
    Are you
    Sweet berries ready for two
    Ghosts are no different than you
    Ghosts are now waiting for you
    Are you, dreaming
    Dreaming tonight
    Dreaming alright
    Do we, do we know
    When we fly
    When we, when we go
    Do we die?

    This is a Grandmother memory of mine, we where just sitting in the car, waiting for her, I turned on the radio, found this song playing in the car. She said "My goodness this song is really beautiful, Milo, who sings it?"

    "System of a down." Almost since the debut album, I remember picking it up at the local farming station, wich I still find pretty ironic, thought way back when it was just a "country station all the time around the clock" state, I was like in tune of the band, there are some memories of my father and grandmother within this song though, we have that certian question we all have to ask ourselves.

    Are we eating sweet berries passing time?

    My fav lyrics and song is from a kid who didn't seem to get much recognition for this early 2000s classic.



    One Voice Was Heard

    Some kids have and some kids don't
    And some of us are wondering why
    Mom won't watch the news at night
    There's too much stuff that's making her cry

    We need some help
    Down here on earth
    A thousand prayers, a million words
    But one voice was heard

    A house, a yard, a neighborhood
    Where you can ride your new bike to school
    A kinda world where mom and dad
    Still believe the golden rule

    Life's not that simple
    Down here on earth
    A thousand prayers, a million words
    But one voice was heard

    One voice
    One simple word
    Hearts know what to say
    One dream can change the world
    Keep believing till you find your way

    Yesterday while walking home
    I saw some kid on Newbury Road
    He pulled a pistol from his bag
    And tossed it in the river below

    Thanks for the help down here on earth
    A thousand prayers, a million words
    But one voice was heard

    One voice was heard
    One voice was heard

    Theres a strong message in the words of this song:

    Wake up, everybody
    No more sleepin' in bed
    No more backward thinkin'
    Time for thinkin' ahead

    The world has changed
    So very much
    From what it used to be
    There is so much hatred
    War and poverty, whoa, oh

    Wake up, all the teachers
    Time to teach a new way
    Maybe then they'll listen
    To what'cha have to say

    'Cause they're the ones who's coming up
    And the world is in their hands
    When yyou teach the children
    Teach 'em the very best you can
