    Post lyrics and video of your favorite lyrics. Here's one that really speaks to me.

    Day By Day - The Alan Parsons Project



    Gaze at the sky
    And picture a memory
    Of days in your life
    You knew what it meant to be happy and free
    With time on your side

    Remember your daddy
    When no one was wiser
    Your ma used to say
    That you would go further than he ever could
    With time on your side

    Think of a boy with the stars in his eye
    Longing to reach them but frightened to try
    Sadly, you'd say, someday, someday

    But day after day
    The show must go on
    And time slipped away
    Before you could build any castles in Spain
    The chance had gone by

    With nothing to say
    And no one to say it to

    Nothing has changed
    You've still got it all to do
    Surely you know
    The chance has gone by

    Think of a boy with the stars in his eye
    Longing to reach them but frightened to try
    Sadly, you'd say, someday, someday

    But, day after day
    The show must go on
    And you gaze at the sky
    And picture a memory of days in your life
    With time on your side

    With time on your side
    (day after day the show must go on)
    With time on your side
    (day after day the show must go on)

    Probably Epitaph by Pete Sinfield (King Crimson):

    The wall on which the prophets wrote
    Is cracking at the seams.
    Upon the instruments of death
    The sunlight brightly gleams.
    When every man is torn apart
    With nightmares and with dreams,
    Will no one lay the laurel wreath
    When silence drowns the screams.

    Confusion will be my epitaph.
    As I crawl a cracked and broken path
    If we make it we can all sit back
    And laugh.
    But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying,
    Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying.

    Between the iron gates of fate,
    The seeds of time were sown,
    And watered by the deeds of those
    Who know and who are known;
    Knowledge is a deadly friend
    When no one sets the rules.
    The fate of all mankind I see
    Is in the hands of fools.

    Confusion will be my epitaph.
    As I crawl a cracked and broken path
    If we make it we can all sit back
    And laugh.
    But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying,
    Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying.

    Get in the ring - guns and roses

    Why do you look at me when you hate me?
    Why should I look at you when you make me hate you too?
    I sense a smell of retribution in the air
    I don't even understand why the **** you even care
    And I don't need your jealousy yeah
    Why drag me down in your misery

    And when you stare you don't think I feel it
    But I'm gonna deal it back to you in spades
    When I'm havin' fun ya know I can't conceal it
    'cause I know you'd never cut in my game, oh no
    And when you're talkin' about a vasectomy, yeah
    I'll be writin' down your obituary...history!

    You got your *****es with the silicone injections
    Crystal meth and yeast infections
    Bleached blond hair, collagen lip projections
    Who are you to criticize my intentions?
    Got your subtle manipulative devices
    Just like you I got my vices
    I got a thought that would be nice
    I'd like to crush your head tight in my vice...pain!!

    And that goes for all of you punks in the press
    That want to start **** by printin' lies instead of the things we said
    That means you andy secher at hit parader, circus magazine
    Mick wall at kerrang, bob guccione jr. at spin
    What you pissed off 'cause your dad gets more ***** than you?
    **** you! suck my ****in' ****!

    You be rippin' off the ****in' kids
    While they be payin' their hard earned money to read about the bands they want to know about
    Printin' lies, startin' controversy
    You want to antagonize me? antagonize me ************!
    Get in the ring ************! and I'll kick your *****y little ***! punk!!

    I don't like you, I just hate you
    I'm gonna kick your ***, oh yeah! oh yeah!

    You may not like our integrity yeah
    We built a world out of anarchy oh yeah!

    And in this corner, weighing in at 850 pounds; guns n' roses!

    Get in the ring(x16)

    This song is dedicated to all the guns n' ****in' roses fans
    Who stuck with us through all the ****ing ****
    And to all those opposed...hmm...well...

    Simon and Garfunkel - The Dangling Conversation

    It's a still life water color,
    Of a now late afternoon,
    As the sun shines through the curtained lace
    And shadows wash the room.
    And we sit and drink our coffee
    Couched in our indifference,
    Like shells upon the shore
    You can hear the ocean roar
    In the dangling conversation
    And the superficial sighs,
    The borders of our lives.

    And you read your Emily Dickinson,
    And I my Robert Frost,
    And we note our place with book markers
    That measure what we've lost.
    Like a poem poorly written
    We are verses out of rhythm,
    Couplets out of rhyme,
    In syncopated time
    And the dangled conversation
    And the superficial sighs,
    Are the borders of our lives.

    Yes, we speak of things that matter,
    With words that must be said,
    "Can analysis be worthwhile?"
    "Is the theater really dead?"
    And how the room is softly faded
    And I only kiss your shadow,
    I cannot feel your hand,
    You're a stranger now unto me
    Lost in the dangling conversation.
    And the superficial sighs,
    In the borders of our lives.
