Love Songs


Recommended Posts

Well I figured if there's a sad song thread, why not a love song thread!!

Come on everyone, show your sappy love side...

 

Dashboard Confessional " Hands Down"

 

Breathe in for luck, breathe in so deep

This air is blessed, you share with me

This night is wild, so calm and dull

These hearts they race from self-control

Your legs are smooth as they graze mine

We're doing fine, we're doing nothing at all.

 

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me

So won't you kill me, so I die happy

My heart is yours to fill or burst

to break or bury, or wear as jewelery

Which ever you prefer

 

The words are hushed lets not get busted,

just lay entwined here undiscovered.

Safe in here from all the stupid questions..

"hey did you get some?"

Man, that is so dumb.

Stay quiet, stay near, stay close

they can't hear, so we can get some.

 

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me

So won't you kill me, so I die happy

My heart is yours to fill or burst

to break or bury, or wear as jewelery

Which ever you prefer

 

Hands down this is the best date I can ever remember

I'll always remember the sound of the stereo

The dim of the soft lights, the scent of your hair

That you twirled in your fingers

And the time on the clock when we realized it was so late

And this walk that we shared together

The streets were wet and the gate was locked

So I jumped it and let you in

And you stood at your door with your hands on my waist

And you kissed me like you meant it

And I knew, that you meant it

That you meant it, that you meant it

And I knew that you meant it, that you meant it

Apologies but I just can't enjoy Dashboard Confessional, too emo even for me.

 

Love the lyrics to this song, I think it's pretty romantic in it's grossness.

 

Nirvana - Drain You

 

One baby to another says,

I'm lucky to have met you

I don't care what you think

Unless it is about me

It is now my duty to completely drain you

A travel through a tube

And end up in your infection

 

Chew your meat for you

Pass it back and forth

In a passionate kiss

From my mouth to yours

Because I like you

 

With eyes so dilated,

I've became your pupil

You've taught me everything

Without a poison apple

The water is so yellow, I'm a healthy student

Indebted and so grateful -

Vacuum out the fluids

 

...Sloppy lips to lips

You're my vitamins because I'm like you

Now that's what I call romance. Sure, it's no "I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn back" but few songs can be.

 

Still my favorite love song...

 

Goddamn you half-Japanese girls

Do it to me every time

Oh, the redhead said you shred the cello

And I'm jello, baby

But you won't talk, won't look, won't think of me

I'm the epitome of public enemy

Why you wanna go and do me like that?

Come down on the street and dance with me

 

I'm a lot like you so please, hello, I'm here, I'm waiting

I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me

 

I asked you to go to the Green Day concert

You said you never heard of them (how cool is that)

How cool is that?

So I went to your room and read your diary:

Watching Grunge leg drop New-Jack through a presstable...

And then my heart stopped:

Listening to Cio-Cio San, fall in love all over again.

 

I'm a lot like you so please, hello, I'm here, I'm waiting

I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me

 

How stupid is it? I can't talk about it

I gotta sing about it and make a record of my heart

How stupid is it? Won't you gimme a minute

Just come up to me

And say hello to my heart

How stupid is it? For all I know you want me too

And maybe you just don't know what to do

Or maybe you're scared to say: 'I'm falling for you'

 

I wish I could get my head out of the sand

Cos I think we'd make a good team

And you would keep my fingernails clean

But that's just a stupid dream that I won't realize

Cos I can't even look in your eyes without shaking, and I ain't

faking

I'll bring home the turkey if you bring home the bacon

 

I'm a lot like you so please, hello, I'm here, I'm waiting

I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me

 

I'm a lot like you

I'm a lot like you

I'm a lot like you

And I'm waiting

I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me

- Weezer, El Scorcho

Pinkerton is the best album in my humble opinion. I know that's considered the snobby fan's choice but damn it, it's a great album.

 

In all seriousness, this song is up there with my fave love songs, just beautiful.

 

Badly Drawn Boy - Another Pearl

 

Why are you trembling so much

I don't think I ever felt so good

When all I need is to be free

Where I love you and you love me

Follow the circle sur la plage

On a mono coloured trip voyage

This is the colour of my world

Stay and watch me find another pearl

 

Follow the gold leaf trail back where

We were young and didn't have a care

Tracing the circles that we made

I don't wanna live life in the shade

Will this be a desert or a beach

Or a place to find the things we need

 

Now you and I make up perfect things

Watch me trade my wheels for wings

But don't ever use the wings to fly

Just the essence of a lullaby

Now I am a giant grain of sand

But I maybe slipping through your hand

Follow my colour coded world

And I watch me find another pearl

 

It's a sound that I love

And it came from above

There's the sound of the sea

Are you following me?

 

Let's walk to the sound of distant shells

To a place where life would have no end

You'd be the mother of my pearls

If you follow me into my world

Back to a place where we'd be free

Where I love you and you love me

This is the colour of my world

Watch me find another pearl

Good call Bucket, I love this one too

 

Badly Drawn Boy - Once Around The Block

 

You quiver like a candle on fire

I'm putting you out

Maybe tonight we could be the last shout

But I'm fascinated by your style

Your beauty will last for a while

 

You're feeling instead of being

The more that I live on the inside

There's nothing to give

I'm infatuated by your moves

I'm got to search out for your clues

 

I want to repair your desire

And call it a gift that I stole from

just wanting to live

Now I see the vision through your eyes

Your innocence no longer fuels surprise

 

Trying to outrun your fear

You're running to lose, heart on your sleeve

And your soul in your shoes

Take a left, a sharp left

And another left, meet me on the corner

And we'll start again

LB- Drain you is in my top 5 nirvana songs... nice

 

my purrsonal favorites..

 

Led Zeppelin.. "All of my Love"

 

All My Love

-----------

Should I fall out of love, my fire in the night

to chase a feather in the wind

Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight

there moves a thread that has no end, yeah

For many hours and days that pass ever soon

the tides have caused the flame to dim

At last, the arm is straight, the hand to the loom

Is this to end or just begin

 

All of my love, all of my love, oh, all of my love to you, now

All of my love, all of my love, oh, all of my love to you, now

 

The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again

One voice is clear above the din

Proud Aryan, one word my will to sustain

For me the cloth once more does spin

 

Oh, all of my love, all of my love

Oh, all of my love for you, now

All of my love, all of my love

Yes, all of my love to you, child

 

Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time

His is the force that lies within

Ours is the fire and all warmth we can find

He is a feather in the wind-a

 

Oh, all of my love, all of my love

Oh, all of my love to you, now

All of my love, oh-whoa, yes, all of my love to you, now

All of my love, all of my love, all of my lo-hove, lo-hove

 

Sometime, sometime, sometime, sometime

Oh, love, hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey, hey, ooh-hoo, yeah, it's all, all, all, all

All of my love, all of my love, all of my love to you, now

All of my love, all of my love

All of my love to, to you and you and you and, yeah

I get a little bit lonely, just a little, just a little

Just a little bit lonely, yeah, just a little bit lonely-hey-hey

Hey-hey, hey, hey-hey, hey-hey

 

another one from Zep, "Thank You"

 

Thank You

---------

If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you

When mountains crumble to the sea

there will still be you and me

Kind a-woman, I give you my all, kind a-woman, nothing more

 

Little drops of rain whisper of the pain

Tears of loves lost in the days gone by

My love is strong, with you there is no wrong

Together we shall go until we die, my, my, my

An inspiration's what you are to me, inspiration, look and see

 

And so, today, my world, it smiles

Your hand in mine, we walk the miles

A-thanks to you, it will be done

for you to me are the only one, alright, yeah

Happiness, no more be sad, happiness, I'm glad

 

If the sun refused to shine, I would still be lovin' you

M-mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me

 

also, Foo Fighters.. "Everlong"

Oh man, I've always felt that if you want a Zep love song, how can it get any better than Thank You? Tangerine is also good.

 

As for Bucket's Pinkerton call:

 

I still have yet to really feel the first half of Pinkerton. I used to love all of the Blue album, the last five songs off Pinkerton and the first five songs of the Green Album, and just Dope Nose of Malaldriot. Recently I've really started to love the second half of the Green Album, but the first half of Pinkerton still just bores me. That said, I like the second half of Pinkerton better than any half of any of their other albums. They really show some maturity in songwriting there.

 

Back to love songs. Who else just loves this song?

 

I saw you standing in the corner

On the edge of a burning light

I saw you standing in the corner

Come to me again in the cold, cold night

in the cold, cold night

 

You make me feel a little older

Like a full grown woman might

But when you're gone I grow colder

come to me again in the cold, cold, Night

in the cold, cold night

 

I saw you standing in the corner

On the edge of a burning light

I saw you standing in the corner

Come to me again in the cold, cold night

 

You make me feel a little older

Like a full grown woman might

But when you're gone I grow colder

Come to me again in the cold, cold night

 

I see you walking by my front door

I hear the creaking of the kitchen floor

I don't care what other people say

I'm going to love you, anyway

Come to me again in the cold, cold night

in the cold, cold night

 

I can't stand it any longer

I need the fuel to make my fire burn bright

So don't fight it any longer

Come to me again in the cold, cold night

In the cold, cold night

 

And I know that you feel it too

When my skin turns into glue

You will know that it's warm inside

And you'll come runnin' to me, in the cold, cold night

in the cold, cold night

in the cold, cold night

in the cold, cold night

Mmmm...Pictures of Lily....

 

I used to wake up in the morning

I used to feel so bad

I got so sick of having sleepless nights

I went and told my dad

 

He said, "Son now here's some little something"

And stuck them on my wall

And now my nights ain't quite so lonely

In fact I, I don't feel bad at all

 

Pictures of Lily made my life so wonderful

Pictures of Lily helped me sleep at night

Pitcures of Lily solved my childhood problems

Pictures of Lily helped me feel alright

 

Pictures of Lily

Lily, oh Lily

Lily, oh Lily

Pictures of Lily

 

And then one day things weren't quite so fine

I fell in love with Lily

I asked my dad where Lily I could find

He said, "Son, now don't be silly"

 

"She's been dead since 1929"

Oh, how I cried that night

If only I'd been born in Lily's time

It would have been alright

 

Pictures of Lily made my life so wonderful

Pictures of Lily helped me sleep at night

 

For me and Lily are together in my dreams

And I ask you, "Hey mister, have you ever seen"

"Pictures of Lily?"

:D Ok next song (sorry but I'm a hopeless romantic) :D

 

 

Never knew I could feel like this

Like I've never seen the sky before

I want to vanish inside your kiss

Every day I Love You more and more

 

Listen to my heart, can you hear it sing

Telling me to give you everything

Seasons may change, winter to spring

But I Love You, until the end of time

 

Come what may

Come what may

I will Love You

Until my dying day

 

Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place

Suddenly it moves with such a perfect grace

Suddenly my life doesn't seem such a waste

It all revolves around you

 

And there's no mountain too high

No river too wide

Sing out this song,

I'll be there by your side

 

Storm clouds may gather

And stars may collide

But I Love You, I Love You,

Until the end of time

 

Oh, come what may, come what may

I will Love You, until my dying day

Oh come what may, come what may

I will Love You, I will Love You

 

Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place

 

Come what may

Come what may

I will Love You

Until my dying day

Not seen the movie but I like that song Alita.

 

And Everlong is up there as best love song ever...

 

"Hello, I’ve waited here for you, everlong

Tonight, I throw myself into and out of the red, out of her head she sang

 

Come down and waste away with me, down with me

Slow how, you wanted it to be, I’m over my head, out of her head she sang

 

And I wonder when I sing along with you

 

If everything could ever feel this real forever

If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I’ll ever ask of you

You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when she sang

 

Breathe out, so I can breathe you in, hold you in

And now, I know you’ve always been out of your head, out of my head I sang

 

And I wonder when I sing along with you

 

If everything could ever feel this real forever

If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I’ll ever ask of you

You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when she sang

 

And I wonder if everything could ever feel this real forever

If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I’ll ever ask of you

You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when"

From this moment life has begun

From this moment you are the one

Right beside you is where I belong

From this moment on

 

From this moment I have been blessed

I live only for your happiness

And for your love I'd give my last breath

From this moment on

 

I give my hand to you with all my heart

Can't wait to live my life with you, can't wait to start

You and I will never be apart

My dreams came true because of you

 

From this moment as long as I live

I will love you, I promise you this

There is nothing I wouldn't give

From this moment on

 

You're the reason I believe in love

And you're the answer to my prayers from up above

All we need is just the two of us

My dreams came true because of you

 

From this moment as long as I live

I will love you, I promise you this

There is nothing I wouldn't give

From this moment

I will love you as long as I live

From this moment on

:D Ok next song (sorry but I'm a hopeless romantic) :D

Ooo...Hopeless Romantic by The Bouncing Souls

 

I don't know what other people say

or what they think is love

but i know what it means to me

i fall in love so easily

and it's hard to let your guard down

something you never wanted to do

i give you my love and you turned away

i guess i'd be screwed

but

 

i'm a hopeless romantic

you're just hopeless

i'm a hopeless romantic

you're just hopeless

 

beer and wine does me fine

but it doesn't always do

when i get back up and dust off

i always come back to you

im my own man

with my own plan

i can't do the things you want me to

im kinda lazy

and i kinda stink

but ill clean myself up for you

 

i'm a hopeless romantic

you're just hopeless

i'm a hopeless romantic

you're just hopeless

 

you're just hopeless

you're just hopeless

 

Hmm...looking at those lyrics, I realize it's not really a love song, but I can't get enough of it anyway :D

this is a great song, def leppard two steps behind

 

Walk away if you want to.

It's OK, if you need to.

Well, you can run, but you can never hide

from the shadow that's creepin' up beside you.

 

 

(CHORUS)

And, there's a magic runnin' through your soul,

But you can't have it all.

(Whatever you do)

I'll be two steps behind you

(Wherever you go)

And I'll be there to remind you

that it only takes a minute of your precious time

to turn around and I'll be two steps behind.

 

 

Yeah, yeah.

Take the time to think about it.

Just walk the line, you know you just can't fight it

And take a look around, you'll see what you can't find,

Like the fire that's burnin' up inside me.

 

 

repeat CHORUS

 

Yeah, yeah.

Oh.

 

 

repeat CHORUS

 

Yeah, baby.

Two steps behind

Oh, sugar,

Two steps behind.

 

 

remember this one baby??? :D :D :D

I still have yet to really feel the first half of Pinkerton.

 

WHAT THE?!?! For real? C'mon Jax, the first half's got "Tired of Sex", "Why Bother?" and the greatest song about wanting to bang fans ever "Across the Sea"! Anyways...

 

 

"A Rainy Night In Soho"

 

I've been loving you a long time

Down all the years, down all the days

And I've cried for all your troubles

Smiled at your funny little ways

We watched our friends grow up together

And we saw them as they fell

Some of them fell into Heaven

Some of them fell into Hell

 

I took shelter from a shower

And I stepped into your arms

On a rainy night in Soho

The wind was whistling all its charms

I sang you all my sorrows

You told me all your joys

Whatever happened to that old song?

To all those little girls and boys

 

Sometimes I wake up in the morning

The ginger lady by my bed

Covered in a cloak of silence

I hear you talking in my head

I'm not singing for the future

I'm not dreaming of the past

I'm not talking of the fist time

I never think about the last

 

Now the song is nearly over

We may never find out what it means

Still there's a light I hold before me

You're the measure of my dreams

The measure of my dreams

 

(Shane MacGowan)

Ben Folds - The Luckiest :D

 

I don’t get many things right the first time

In fact, I am told that a lot

Now I know all the wrong turns, the stumbles and falls

Brought me here

 

And where was I before the day

That I first saw your lovely face?

Now I see it everyday

And I know

 

That I am

I am

I am

The luckiest

 

What if I’d been born fifty years before you

In a house on a street where you lived?

Maybe I’d be outside as you passed on your bike

Would I know?

 

And in a white sea of eyes

I see one pair that I recognize

And I know

 

That I am

I am

I am

The luckiest

 

I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you

 

Next door there’s an old man who lived to his nineties

And one day passed away in his sleep

And his wife; she stayed for a couple of days

And passed away

 

I’m sorry, I know that’s a strange way to tell you that I know we belong

That I know

 

That I am

I am

I am

The luckiest

 

 

May not look like much on paper but try listening to it and not crying. Yeah, I thought as much :D

I'm with 2track. I would have picked that song, and if I ever get married and it applies, I'm playing it at my wedding. So 2track stole my first choice, so I'll post my second one.

 

Do you remember that sunny day

Somewhere in london

In the middle of nowhere

Didn't have nothing to do that day

Didn't want to do nothing anyway

 

You got a way of walking

You got a way of talking

And there's something about you

And now I know I never ever

Want to be without you

 

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

Of your precious love

Of your precious love

 

The first time I saw you

Standing in the street

You were so cool you could have

Put out vietnam

All the girls say "Whats he like?"

I said "He's kind of shy

But that's the kind of girl I am,

He's my kind of guy"

 

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

Of your precious love

Of your precious love

 

I'll build my world around you

I'll bless the day that I found you

I'll stay beside you and I'll never leave

Or tell you all those lies you'd never believe

Uh huh huh

 

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

Of your precious love

Of your precious love

 

You got a way of walking

You got a way of talking

And there's something about you

That's the kind of girl I am,

He's my kind of guy

And now I know I never ever

Want to be without you

 

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

And now I know I never ever

Want to be without you

 

Haunted... haunted... haunted...

 

---Shane MacGowan and Sinead O'Connor "Haunted"

 

And my third one...

Got no time for the corner boys,

down in the street makin' all that noise,

don't want no whores on eighth avenue,

cause tonight i'm gonna be with you.

 

'cause tonight i'm gonna take that ride,

across the river to the jersey side,

take my baby to the carnival,

and i'll take you on all the rides,

sing sha la la la la la sha la la la.

 

Down the shore everything's alright,

you're with your baby on a saturday night,

don't you know that all my dreams come true,

when i'm walkin' down the street with you,

sing sha la la la la la sha la la la.

 

You know she thrills me with all her charms,

when i'm wrapped up in my baby's arms,

my little angel gives me everything,

I know someday that she'll wear my ring.

 

So don't bother me cause i got no time,

I'm on my way to see that girl of mine,

nothin' else matters in this whole wide world,

when you're in love with a jersey girl,

sing sha la la la la la la.

 

and i call your name, i can't sleep at night,

sha la la la la la la.

 

---Tom Waits "Jersey Girl"

Baby, look around

See that I'm nowhere to be found

You wanna feel me near

Then close your eyes, and I'll appear

 

Dream over me with a tear

Anything it takes to wish me here

Oh, magic and sweet lullabies

Any lucky penny will do fine

Oh, to wish me here

 

You're arms are open wide

Waiting for me to run inside

I'll meet you in the clouds

Please use your power to bring Heaven down

 

And dream over me with a tear

Anything it takes to wish me here

Oh, magic and sweet lullabies

Any lucky penny will do fine

Oh, to wish me here

 

And when we're face to face

The world just fades away

So take me to that place

Where it's just you and I

Every single night

 

And dream over me with a tear

Anything it takes to wish me here

Oh, magic and sweet lullabies

Any lucky penny will do fine

Oh, yeah

 

Dream over me with a tear

Anything it takes to wish me here

Oh, magic and sweet lullabies

Any lucky penny will do fine

Oh, to wish me here

 

You wish me here

You wish me here

Oh, you wish me here
