Sometimes lyrics just hit me. I get a weird Feeling when I hear them, a cross between a shudder and an adrenaline rush. Sometimes it's because the lyrics are great, and sometimes it's just because. For whatever reason, here are some of the words that have been giving me chills lately.

"The sun goes down, I feel the light betray me." ~ Papercut, Linkin Park

"I created the sound of madness." ~ Sound of Madness, Shinedown

"I believe in you, I can show you that I can see right through all your empty lies." Dance with the Devil, Breaking Benjamin

"And the first time, that you opened your eyes did you realize that you would be my savior? And the first breath that left your lips, did you know that it would change this world forever?" ~ I Celebrate the Day, Relient K

"Life me up, let me go." ~ The Catalyst, Linkin Park

"Black lips, pale eyes. Cyanide sweet tooth suicide." ~ Cyanide Sweet Tooth, Shinedown

"It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you. There's nothing a hundred men or more could ever do. I blessed the rain down in Africa. It's gonna take some time to do the things we never have." ~ Africa, Toto

"No light, no light in your bright blue eyes. I never knew daylight could be so violent, a revelation in the light of day. You can't choose what stays and what fades away." ~ No Light, No Light, Florence + the Machine

"This is the unforgettable sound; bringing you up and taking you down." ~ High Voltage, Linkin Park

"When you lie like the devil himself, no angel's gonna hear your cry for help." ~ Cry for Help, Shinedown

"Just like a crow chasing the butterfly, dandelions lost in the summer sky. When you and I were getting high as outer space, I never thought you'd slip away. I guess I was just a little too late." ~ The Crow and the Butterfly, Shinedown



  1. Oh my gosh I love Shinedown and Breaking Benjamin. I haven't heard any of the Shinedown songs you mentioned except Sound of Madness and The Crow and the Butterfly, but I have them on my iPod, so I'll listem to them. :) Do you know If You Only Knew by Shinedown? I love it.

    And Breaking Benjamin is one of my favorite bands too. I basically love every song I know from them. Dear Agony is a favorite. :)

  2. Alana: Yess.

    Lauren: Hey! Long time no talk :) For some reason Blogger doesn't display your new posts, so I never know when you've blogged. Ugh. Annoying.

    You get some credit for helping my BB library :D I do know that song, and I like it a lot. Also What A Shame.
