Searching For A Song
Hi All!
Hope it's OK to post this.
I'm wondering if any of you know a song (preferably a slow, pensive one) that's essentially a friend saying to his best friend, "I love you and care about you ... just not romantically." Ideally, the singer knows that the best friend loves him, but he can't "love" the friend in return romantically, despite the fact that they're extremely close friends. Either gender of artist/band is all right.
Thanks for any help!

I Just Remembered, Again
I was driving to work this morning and this song came on the radio.
I felt it is very applicable to my current "relationship."

I very often feel that songs apply very appropriately to lots of things and situations.
I like to share it when I think about it.
My friends on MySpace and not thoroughly interested when I do that.

I remembered that there was this community.
Honestly if it ends up just being me here, then whatever.
At least I will have a separate place for all this madness that is my affiliation of songs to real life.

So here, Cake - Never There.

This means your SO isn't that into you or is annoyed by you but still wants to "have you." *sigh*

I need your arms around me, I need to feel your touch
I need your understanding, I need your love so much
You tell me that you love me so, you tell me that you care
But when I need you baby, youre never there

On the phone long, long distance
Always through such strong resistance
First you say youre too busy
I wonder if you even miss me

Never there
Youre never there
Youre never, ever, ever, ever there

A golden bird that flies away, a candles fickle flame
To think I held you yesterday, your love was just a game
A golden bird that flies away, a candles fickle flame
To think I held you yesterday, your love was just a game

You tell me that you love me so, you tell me that you care
But when I need you baby
Take the time to get to know me
If you want me why cant you just show me
Were always on this roller coaster
If you want me why cant you get closer?

Never there
Youre never there
Youre never ever ever ever there

Current Mood: satisfied

Hi! I'm new here, and I thought I'd post some short song lyrics I wrote a while back. I'll warn you now that I'm not very good at all.

Have you heard this song?
Does anyone know what this song is, and/or where it came from?

(a fragment of the refrain, sound): http://web.mit.edu/derrict/Public/Music/unknownsong_refrain.mid

(a bit of the piano solo intro, picture): http://web.mit.edu/derrict/Public/Music/unknownsong_intro.png

I ran into this song four and a half years ago, in some piano+voice songbook that a friend bought in Hong Kong.

I have no clue as to what the song is named, what it's about, what the original instrumentation was, when it was written, where it was written, who wrote it, etc..

I do however remember (1) the exact appearance of the first two bars, (2) the first phrase and plus a bit of the second phrase of the refrain melody, and (3) the refrain's left-hand pattern.

I also remember that the song was in B-flat major, but ended verses in an incomplete cadence in G minor, so that the refrain could begin noticeably in G minor and end up back in B-flat major. I loved this feature.

Interestingly, I later wrote my own song-without-words based on the refrain of this song.

cross-posted to bulby01, chordgasm, music_composers, musictheory, namethattune, songposting; this time, without bothering to type different combinations of these names corresponding to everything BUT the community noted

Edit: mentioned that the intro is piano solo, not sung.

HELP!!! Lifetime Channle.... Mom At Sixteen

ok... in the movie Mom At Sixteen (it was on last night on Lifetime Channle)... in the sense where the girl comes over to her somewhat boyfriends dorm (frat house, whatever) they start making out on the bed, then she say's "stop". (here is my question...)

what was the name of the song (or the artist) that was playing while they were making out?

it was a woman singer, sounded like Sarah Michelin (but i know it wasn't, kinda).

I've done research and i cant find it. it go's something like this (lyrics) ... :

"cause i feel you"

"yeah, i feel you baby"

its a slow song. emotional.

Here within your shadow
Is where I choose to dwell
It's the only place I know
That words can never tell
I wish I could stay forever
But I know the day shall come
When the ties between us sever
And we return to where we're from

Here within your shadow
Is now a home to me
As I bask within the warm glow
Of your sincerity
If I had a million chances
I would never seek to leave
Cause I've discovered what enhances
My reason to believe

All my life I've wondered
What my existence meant
As the rolling clouds thundered
Over everywhere I went
Till,finally,I found reason
In the shadow of your soul
Where the echoes of each season
Resonate and make me whole

And,until then,I'll remain here
With a smile upon my face
With not a drop of rain near
This sacred,hallowed place
Here within your shadow
Is just where I belong
And the day that I must go
Is the day when life is wrong

Just what is truth? A fanciful lie?
Is that why it can't soothe each tear that I cry?
The revelation of fact before it is known:
An unholy pact with the mystic unknown?

What is the pleasure that is found in pain?
What price is treasure without any gain?
There's no reason or rhyme for such a curse
...unless such a time is viewed in reverse

For sometimes lies can be the truth
As seen through the eyes of wayward youth
Those who conspire and those which complain
Who sit by the fire in the pouring rain

What is their dream? Who hears their plea?
Doesn't it seem that once it was we
Who roamed the street so unaware
Of the rhythmic beat in the fragrant air?

Where are they from and where do they go?
Why did we come and why don't we know?
Is there no answer? Are questions unheard?
Perhaps now's our chance for a final word

Let's take a peek into what never was
Just a moment to seek what within never does
Perhaps if we gazed in the reflecting glass
We'd be amazed at what images pass

For without the shadow or the disguise
We both truly look of our own eyes
It's anyone's guess but the clock on the wall
Says either confess or damned be us all

When,all around,there is the sound of peaceful solitude
And the only images to be found exist within the mood
That's the chance to accept the dance even if you can't
You'll find the step where it's kept within the piper's chant

When,all within,the ceaseless din of the world fades away
Allowing for just a moment to breathe the scent of day
That is when you begin again to seek what left so soon
And,when you do,only then will you hear the piper's tune

The whispers in the breezes which appeases and consumes
The ripples in the water,color splashes in the plumes
Blending with the mending of a heart denied in love
This is only but a sampling of all the piper's of

Upon the crests of windfalls,there's no walls to divide
Expressions emerge quickly when there's not a need to hide
From the majestic rise of mountains to fountains spraying mist
This is where,in the fragrant air,you shall feel the piper's kiss

When,all throughout,the cloak of doubt is lifted to reveal
Just what life is all about in all you think and feel
That's a sign to drink the wine,the sweet nectar which abounds
In the presence of the lilting tones amidst the piper's sounds

When all above,below,beyond,there's a bond between the land
And man as he embraces life with a strong and steady hand
That's the time to begin the climb from where you've been so long
And follow the echoes of the chime which exist in the piper's song

I'm knew female 15. Pretty cool that there is a place to post your own song lyrics. Well I might as well get on with it right. X2 or whatever means the verse as many times as the #.


It felt just like a dream

I felt finally free

And we saw a rocking horse in the starts X2


We went right to sea

the pirate flag flying right over me

got so extremely high

and the tree's started talking to the orange sky X2


It felt just like an indie movie I saw last week X4


I felt so comfortable in your arms

even though I didn’t mean a thing by it dear

don’t get confused by the signals I give you

even though they might seem quite clear


And it felt just like an indie movie I saw last week X4


We figured out the meaning of life

which is sex and the will to fight it

chaos theory and how everything’s a mess

but there's order inside of it

I has so much fun messing with your head

even though it was wrong

all boys are dressed up as men

to trick us women

they're all dressed up to play

with our little minds


All good things must come to an end

And I said " please don’t let it happen

Please don’t let it end"

So we got in the truck to leave

he was twitching uncontrollably

I tried to calm him down X2

Said its gonna be alright X2

But I was wrong X2

Twelve more dollars to ride X4

Twelve more dollars back to the dreamland

Twelve more dollars back to the dream


It felt just like an indie movie I saw last week X4


I know the lyrics themselves are kind of awkward but the song it upbeat

and I like it. The songs about a trip I went on with a group of friends and it just ended up being this perfect dream. Just beautiful in every way even though the things that happend there, later once we went back fucked everything up. Well that’s it have a nice day.

i like cake
hey all,
i'm andy.
i'm new to the whole live journal thing,
but good to find a songwriting community.
here's my song about,
not sure.

When I need you here (Melancholy)

Wooden fingers rock the cradle in my mind,
And ice burns to shine a light that begins to free,
A dreary day locked away inside my heart,
My heart crowned of the thorns from the enchanted key.

Blessed and cursed, would you smile?
If I were to let go for a rapid while?
And would you cry?
If I were to decide,
That I would die,
Before the black days fell apart,
And I freed my second heart.

Freed the tears that reside in need,
Would you touch the stars with me?
Collect the planets and rock the seas,
Just to find the lost enchanted key?

Stop the rage, how sin it was,
Be a sage, then win because,
My heart and yours are no longer waiting,
And I was just a fool for hating,
A fool for hating.

Every time I see eyes in the shadow,
I feel like the candle no longer smiles,
I feel like it is time to shatter stone windows,
With a hate that the sinners call vile.

Every time I conquer the red I fly away,
To another mission that rises every day,
Like the cracked skin upon a garden,
I can’t win until bones begin to harden.

And would you cry?
If I were to decide,
I’ll soon die,
My days have fallen apart,
Too late to save this heart,

Freed the fears that clawed in me,
Planted and nurtured a sinful seed,
Never loved or dreamt kind dreams,
All because of a life in greed,

Can’t stop the rage, how sin it is,
Can’t be a sage, and live in bliss,
My heart and yours can’t ever stop fading,
How I wish I never started hating,
Cos I’m just a fool for hating.
A fool for hating,

Into the night I dig amongst the soil,
I reap it with a rusty knife,
Sinking like a ship on waters of toil,
Drinking the poison of god.

Sunrise,peeking slowly through the trees
Bring me another day to share
Sunrise,with your warm and gentle breeze
Show me just how much you care

Oh,can you read my mind?
Can you take away the pain?
Erase all of my yesterdays
And let me start again

Sunrise,collect up all my dreams
Turn them into something real
Sunrise,sew up all my seams
Close my wounds and let them heal

Let me knoe the truth
That's concealed behind the lies
Reveal to me the answers
And blaze them across the skies

Sunrise,breathe new life into my soul
Tell me that I am not wrong
Sunrise,help me fulfill my role
Let me know that I belong

Give to me a reason
That I should carry on
Welcome and caress me
With each refreshing dawn

(Instrumental Break)

Unlock all of your mysteries
That have so long been known
Confide in me your secrets
You already know my own

Sunrise,cast all shadows to the side
Light my path so I can see
Sunrise,be my guardian and guide
Take me where I want to be...
