EMILIE AUTUMN lyrics

Willow

Original and similar lyrics
Willow, weep for me Bow your tallest tree Down to the infamous hands Of someone no one understands I'm not unique in this It's based on none but my mistake At night I lie awake Thinking of all the hearts I'd happily break It's cruel I know At least they tell me so Well someone lock me up and throw away the key Because I'm not ashamed, oh no Oh, willow That I only write love songs To those whom I don't love I only reach for him Who's tied to someone else's glove That which I hold inside Which I admire and deride Which I protect and hide is yours Willow, weep for me Don't think I don't see This life I'm living in two But still it's something I must do I'm not unique in this Nor am I special, sweet or kind I court a thousand smiles Yet I keep my own to hide behind It's cruel I know At least they tell me so Well someone lock me up and throw away the key Because I'm not ashamed, oh no Oh, willow That I only write love songs To those whom I don't love I only reach for him Who's tied to someone else's glove That which I hold inside Which I admire and deride Which I protect and hide is yours Slander and distension They're parlor games to me Papers overrun with lies too mad to mention You say they never hurt you No consequence, I'm happy We're much too far above it all But oh no, that's not true These wicked pastimes take their toll These tyrant vices break your soul Deliver me from all I am And all I never want to be I love you (Oh willow, willow, willow) Doubt me not Rewrite this plot for all to see And I only write love songs To those whom I don't love I only reach for him Who's tied to someone else's glove That which I hold inside Which I admire and deride Which I protect and hide is yours Bend your branches to the ground and hold me close Let me harmonize with all we knew Share your sympathy and weep for me Oh, willow, heal the hearts I've broken Make me pure and start my song anew For I only write love songs To those whom I don't love I only reach for him Who's tied to someone else's glove That which I hold inside Which I admire and deride Which I protect and hide is yours

Elizabeth

THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT "Such Hot Blood"
There’s a distance in your eyes That’s why a smile is always a surprise When you call and you talk to me I wonder which person you’re going to be She said, all your songs are sad songs Why do you always have to see the worst of it Could you write me just one love song? Put my name somewhere in the middle of it It’s not hard to write Elizabeth Just close your eyes boy and take your best guess Cause the truth is hard, isn’t it? She said “I’ll be listening in my favorite white dress” All these quite afternoons, She said, “I wonder if I’ve given up my love too soon” As her hair fell from her curls I said you’re pretty uptight for a Mexican Girl She said, all your songs are sad songs Why do you always have to make me feel like shit? Could you write me just one love song? And put my name somewhere in the middle of it And if you call the song Elizabeth All my friends will know it’s about me Cause the truth is hard, isn’t it? Don’t take too long, I just know you’ll come back to me I said all these songs are love songs Just love at times can make you feel like shit So you write a string of words down It’s better if there’s some truth in it It’s true I love you Elizabeth I love the way you move in that silly white dress Because the truth is hard to admit I’ve never known love This is just my best guess.

On The Borderline

ALISON KRAUSS "Too Late To Cry"
There's a chill on this evening, nights right for greaving, Darkness surrounds him as he wanders alone He walked past the dim lights, the pathways and street lights They remind him, of nights long ago, When his love was strong and his muscles hard, His whiskey throat was barley marred, Seeking misfortune in the lies that he told, Then a brokin heart bought him to his knees, In the hour of his greatest need, Lost and forsaken by the love, he could not hold [Chorus:] On the Border line of love again, Its bound to make you pay On the Border line, we'll make our stand, Then watch it fall away And he stands in quiet solitude, The nights reflects upon his mood, Seeking the vision that had once been so clear, When he felt the touch of his women's love His pounding heart was warm and young, Now locked inside him with his anger and fear As he moves on slowly, past the trees, Down the path way home through fallen leaves He can't believe, how he'd sunken so low, So he learned to live with his injured pride His purple heart hidden, deep inside, The only reward, for a love he could not hold [Chorus 2x]

Nobody Wants To Be Lonely

CHRISTINA AGUILERA
Why, why, why Oh ooh ohh There you are, in a darkened room And you're all alone, looking out the window Your heart is cold and lost the will to love Like a broken arrow Here I stand in the shadows In the shadows Come to come, come to me Can't you see that Nobody wants to be lonely Nobody wants to cry My body's longing to hold you So bad it hurts inside Time is precious and it's slipping away And I've been waiting for you all of my life (ohh) Nobody wants to be lonely So why (why), why don't you let me love you Why (ooh ohh yeah), why (oh why), why Ooh ooh, yeah Can you hear my voice, do you hear my song It's a seranade, so your heart can find me, ohh And suddenly you're flying down the stairs Into my arms, baby, ohh Before I start going crazy Going crazy, ohh Run to me Run to me Cause I'm dying... Nobody wants to be lonely Nobody wants to cry (I don't wanna cry) My body's longing to hold you (I'm longing to hold you) So bad it hurts inside Time is precious and it's slipping away And I've been waiting for you all of my life (ohh) Nobody wants to be lonely So why Why, why don't you let me love you I wanna feel you need me Feel you need me Just like the air you're breathing Breathing, I need you here in my life Don't walk away, don't walk away Don't walk alway, don't walk away No, no, no, no... Nobody wants to be lonely Nobody wants to cry...yeah yeah Nobody wants to be lonely (yeah ohh ooh) Nobody wants to cry (nobody wants to cry) My body's longing to hold you (is longing to hold you) So bad it hurts inside (hurts inside) Time is precious and it's slipping away And I've been waiting for you all of my life (ohh) Nobody wants to be lonely So why (why), why don't you let me love you Let me love you...

A Song About Love

JAKE BUGG "Shangri La"
You tell me all the things you do Tell me that it's up to you Crying in the peaceful night Telling all the things you hide But out there in the future Maybe you're the rainbow There's no song without love With your eyes shut you cry in your bed Is that what you wanted? Songs about love? Is that what you hoped you would find When it's burning inside But a song about love's not enough So what do you want for? What are you needing? Songs about memories That hide and then shatter your mind Like a constant reminder I just want to find where you are I just want to find where you are I hold you and your eyes fall down You barely even make a sound Crying in the peaceful night Showing all the things you hide But out there in the future Maybe you're the rainbow There's no song without love With your eyes shut you cry in your bed Is that what you wanted? Songs about love? Is that what you hoped you would find When it's burning inside But a song about love's not enough So what do you want for? What are you needing? Songs about memories That hide and then shatter your mind Like a constant reminder I just want to find where you are I just want to find where you are I just want to find where you are

Graceful Concession

AGAINST ME!
Your talent outshines all that I could ever do or say and me and my jealousy, I stole your songs and passed them off as my own As much as I would like for it not to show you can smell the stink on my breath and in my clothes, it's so obvious oh if I could only be half the things you write about in your songs if I could only mean half as much to anyone and in my arrogance I write pages of anger hate and spite all of the reasons I have to trust... absolutely no one today I heard you on my stereo and it shamed me, yes it shamed me to think that I could be so unoriginal oh if I could only be half the genius that you are to feel such honest want, to show love I would show you love I would show you love I would show you love oh if I could only feel half as resolute in my beliefs, if I could only sing with such bravery I can not explain how much you mean to me without your words, I would be lost.
