    Hi

    Whenever I listen to Arctic Monkeys Flourescent Adolescent it reminds me of, well me!

    Especially when it goes "you used to get it in your fishnets, now you only get it in your nightdress"

    :rotfl:

    And I do remember when I used to be a rascal :angel:

    Well a foo fighters besotted fan, 'the pretender' speaks volumes too me about how I felt about me abusive ex bf.

    'What if I say I'm not like the others?
    What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
    You're the pretender
    What if I say that I'll never surrender?'


    I'm the voice inside your head
    You refuse to hear
    I'm the face that you have to face
    Mirrored in your stare
    I'm what's left, I'm what's right
    I'm the enemy
    I'm the hand that will take you down
    Bring you to your knees

    So who are you?
    Yeah, who are you?
    Yeah, who are you?
    Yeah, who are you?

    reminds me of me and my relationship with my dad

    I watched you die
    I heard you cry every night in your sleep
    I was so young
    You should have known better than to lean on me
    You never thought of anyone else
    You just saw your pain
    And now I cry in the middle of the night
    For the same damn thing

    Because of you
    I never stray too far from the sidewalk
    Because of you
    I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
    Because of you
    I try my hardest just to forget everything
    Because of you
    I don't know how to let anyone else in
    Because of you
    I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty
    Because of you
    I am afraid

    Its weird how some songs you can really relate to. I have sad ones too that remind me of stuff.

    The first line of Nirvanas "Serve the servants" just about sums me up...

    "Teenage angst has paid off well, now I'm bored and old"

    :doh:

    This song reminds me of myself and my kids. I suffered really bad post natal depressin after both births but my kids helped soooo much.

    Whenever this song is on I sing it loudly to the kids and they both used to dance along with me!! My daughter is 6 now and gets embarrassed but my son still dances!! makes me happy and sad at the same time this song!!

    Sometimes I feel like
    Throwing my hands up in the air
    I know I can count on you
    Sometimes I feel like saying
    'Lord I just don't care'
    But you got the love I need
    To see me through

    Sometimes it seems
    The going is just too rough
    And things go wrong
    No matter what I do
    Now and then I feel
    Like life is just too much
    But you got the love
    I need to see me through

    When food is gone
    You are my daily meal
    When friends are gone I know
    My saviour's love is real
    Your love is real

    You got the love (repeat 5x)

    Sometimes I feel like
    Throwing my hands up in the air
    I know I can count on you
    Sometimes I feel like saying
    Lord I just don't care
    But you got the love I need
    To see me through

    Time after time
    I say oh Lord whats the use
    Time after time
    I say this just won't do, but
    Sooner or later in life the things you love you lose,
    Just like before i know i'll call on you

    Occasionally
    My thoughts are brave and friends are few
    Occasionally
    I cry out Lord what must I do
    Occasionally
    I call up Master make me new
    You got the love
    I need to see me through

    Sometimes I feel like
    Throwing my hands up in the air
    I know I can count on you
    Sometimes I feel like saying
    Lord I just don't care
    But you got the love I need
    To see me through

    Oh it gets so rough somtimes
    Oh the going gets so hard
    But I know
    You got the love (repeat 3x)

    Lord I could use some time to keep it together
    But I know you got it
    You got the love
    I need to see me through
    (see me through)
    You got the love
    mmhmm

    reminds me of me and my ex the kids dad :(
    one republic apologize
    I'm holding on your rope,
    Got me ten feet off the ground
    I'm hearin what you say but I just can't make a sound
    You tell me that you need me
    Then you go and cut me down, but wait
    You tell me that you're sorry
    Didn't think I'd turn around, and say...

    It's too late to apologize, it's too late
    I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

    I'd take another chance, take a fall
    Take a shot for you
    And I need you like a heart needs a beat
    But it's nothin new
    I loved you with a fire red-
    Now it's turning blue, and you say...
    "Sorry" like the angel heaven let me think was you
    But I'm afraid...

    It's too late to apologize, it's too late
    I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

    Bridge (guitar/piano)

    It's too late to apologize, it's too late
    I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late
    It's too late to apologize, yeah
    I said it's too late to apologize, yeah-
    I'm holdin on your rope, got me ten feet off the ground

    i love the song too

    When I was little and we used to go on holiday to spain the bars used to play that song "brown girl in the ring" and I always used to think I was that girl!

    Never quite unstood the line "she looks like a sugar in a plum, plum plum"

    What was all that about ? :?
