1. Blondie
All I want is a photo in my wallet.
A small remembrance of something more solid.
All I want is a picture of you.

Picture This

Once I had a love and it was divine.
Soon found out I was losing my mind.
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind.
Mucho mistrust.
Love's gone behind.
In between "what I find is pleasing" and "I'm feeling fine", love is so confusing.
There's no peace of mind if I fear I'm losing you.
It's just no good, you teasing like you do.

Heart Of Glass

So be the only one who cares
the only one who dares
the only one who sees
the only one who dreams
be the only one who tries
the only one who cries
be the only one for me, for me

2. Coldplay
And we live in a beautiful world,
Yeah we do, yeah we do,
We live in a beautiful world

Don't Panic

Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start

The Scientist

Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do..

Yellow

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

Lights will guide you home
and ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Fix You

Life goes on, it gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear a waterfall
In the night the stormy night she’ll close her eyes
In the night the stormy night away she’d fly ..

Paradise

3. Oasis
'Cos all of the stars
Are fading away
Just try not to worry
You'll see them some day
Take what you need
And be on your way
And stop crying your heart out

Stop Crying Your Heart Out

Slip inside the eye of your mind
Don't you know you might find
A better place to play

Don't Look Back In Anger

But I don't mind
As long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine
I'll be fine
If you give me a minute
A mans got a limit
You can't get a life if your hearts' not in it

The Importance Of Being Idle

I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now

4. Radiohead
I dont care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When I'm not around
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special

Creep

5. David Bowie
There's such a fooled heart
Beating so fast in search of new dreams
A love that will last within your heart..

As the pain sweeps through
Makes no sense for you
Every thrill has gone
Wasn't too much fun at all
But I'll be there for you-
As the world falls down

As The World Falls Down

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows its all worthwhile
He told me:
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

Starman

Good friends we have, oh, good friends we've lost

If I lay here

And now, when the end is near
I know you meant every tear you gave to me that year
We were all alone when the sunlight hit our bones
As the stream carried us home

Take it for what it's worth
Those days that we walked the earth
Remember how much it hurts

And Now

I throw, I miss, something, nothing
But dreams, schemes, moments wasted
Taste that tasted, fate I'm fated

And you said “this is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy”

17. Skunk Anansie
I've been biding my time
Been so subtly kind
I've got to think so selfishly
'cos you're the face inside of me

I've been biding my days
You see
Evidently it pays
I've been a friend with unbiased views
Then secretly lust after you

Secretly

Just because you feel good
Doesn't make you right
Just because you feel good
Still want you here tonight

Everyday I fight a war against the mirror
I can't take the person staring back at me
I'm a hazard to myself

Don't let me get me
I'm my own worst enemy
It's bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
Dont wanna be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else

I'll be there as soon as I can
But I'm busy mending broken pieces of the life I had before

First there was the one who challenged
All my dreams and all my balance
She could never be as good as you

Unintended

My life
You electrify my life
Let's conspire to re-ignite
All the souls that would die just to feel alive

23. Adele
I know you haven't made your mind up yet,
But I would never do you wrong.
I've known it from the moment that we met,
No doubt in my mind where you belong..

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true.
Nothing that I wouldn't do.
Go to the ends of the Earth for you,
To make you feel my love

Make You Feel My Love

I hate to turn up out of the blue, uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it
I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me, it isn't over..

Baby you need to leave
'cause I'm getting drunk on your noble deeds
It doesn't matter that they don't get done
When I feel this cold they're like the fucking sun

Baby I need a friend
but I'm a Vampire smile, you'll meet a sticky end
and I'm here trying not to bite your neck
but it's beautiful and I'm gonna get
so drunk on you and kill your friends..

Darling don't you understand

The room is full of silence and it's getting hard to breathe
Take this guilted cage of pain and set me free
Take this overcoat of shame

It never did belong to me

I may be blind
I may be viciously unkind
But I can still read what you're thinking..

You only see what your eyes want to see
How can life be what you want it to be
You're frozen

You waste your time with hate and regret
You're broken
When your hearts not open

Creation comes when you learn to say no

Actually 'Make you feel my love' is an original song by Bob Dylan! I like it better when Adele sings it though :P great list!!
Posted: 2 years, 6 months ago at Feb 9 3:54
Thanks :) - The list is reflecting lyrics from songs I like though (hence the Adele version rather than Bob Dylan). If I'd put the original writers up I'm guessing most of these artists wouldn't be on here lol!

These songs are great legends, I remembered that I like also

Blondie-One way or another, Call me
Muse-Undisclosed desires, Uprising, Supermassive Black Hole
The Verve-Bittersweet Symphony
Moby-Mistake
Rihanna-Where have you been
Sia-Titanium

also many others, I can't remember all of them :_))
