OK I really like the video clip, I'll admit it, but the words are ok too. I can just imagine Yoda saying the 2nd last line; And in the end on dreams we will depend

Showing my age a bit:

Van Halen - Dreams

World turns black and white
Pictures in an empty room
Your love starts fallin' down
Better change your tune
Yeah, you reach for the golden ring
Reach for the sky
Baby, just spread your wings

We'll get higher and higher
Straight up we'll climb
We'll get higher and higher
Leave it all behind

Run, run, run away
Like a train runnin' off the track
Got the truth bein' left behind
Falls between the cracks
Standin' on broken dreams
Never losin' sight, ah
Well just spread your wings

We'll get higher and higher
Straight up we'll climb
We'll get higher and higher
Leave it all behind

So baby dry your eyes
Save all the tears you've cried
Oh, that's what dreams are made of
'Cause we belong in a world that must be strong
Oh, that's what dreams are made of

Yeah, we'll get higher and higher
Straight up we'll climb
Higher and higher
Leave it all behind
Oh, we'll get higher and higher
Who knows what we'll find?

So baby dry your eyes
Save all the tears you've cried
Oh, that's what dreams are made of
Oh baby, we belong in a world that must be strong
Oh, that's what dreams are made of

And in the end on dreams we will depend
'Cause that's what love is made of

"Be yourself" -Audio Slave
!


Someone falls to pieces, sleeping all alone
Someone kills the pain, spinning in the silence
To finally drift away

Someone gets excited
In a chapel yard and catches a bouquet
Another lays a dozen, white roses on a grave

Yeah and to be yourself is all that you can do
Hey, to be yourself is all that you can do

Someone finds salvation in everyone, another only pain
Someone tries to hide himself, down inside himself he prays
Someone swears his true love until the end of time
Another runs away, separate or united, healthy or insane

And to be yourself is all that you can do, yeah
(All that you can do)
To be yourself is all that you can do
(All that you can do)

To be yourself is all that you can do
(All that you can do)
Hey, be yourself is all that you can do

Even when you've paid enough
Been pulled apart or been held up
Every single memory of the good or bad
Faces of luck

Don't lose any sleep tonight
I'm sure everything will end up alright
You may win or lose

But to be yourself is all that you can do, yeah
To be yourself is all that you can do

Oh, to be yourself is all that you can do
(All that you can do)
Hey, to be yourself is all that you can do
(All that you can do)

To be yourself is all that you can
Be yourself is all that you can
Be yourself is all that you can do

I've got a couple :)

"Carry on Wayward Son" by KANSAS:
Carry on my wayward son,
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high
Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I'm dreamin', I can hear them say

Carry on my wayward son,
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Masquerading as a man with a reason
My charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know
On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean
I set a course for winds of fortune, but I hear the voices say

Carry on my wayward son,
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Carry on, you will always remember
Carry on, nothing equals the splendor
Now your life's no longer empty
Surely heaven waits for you

Carry on my wayward son,
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

AND

"Misguided Ghosts" by PARAMORE
I am going away for a while
But I'll be back don't try and follow me
Cause I'll return as soon as possible
See I'm tryin' to find my place
But it might not be here where I feel safe
We all learn to make mistakes,

And run from them
From them
With no direction
We'll run from them
From them
With no conviction

Cause I'm just one of those ghosts
Traveling endlessly
Don't need no roads
In fact they follow me
And we just go in circles

Now I'm told that this is life
Pain is just a simple compromise
So we can we get what we want out of it
Will someone care to classify
A broken heart and twisted minds
So I can find, someone to rely on,

And run to them
to them
Full speed ahead
Oh you are not
Useless
We are just

Misguided ghosts
Traveling endlessly
The ones we trusted the most
Pushed us far away
And there's no one road
We should not be the same
I'm just a ghost
And still they echo me
They echo me in circles.
You can travel for years, through mountains and deserts, and never find it. That is because it was always with you.

Telling Stories by Tracy Chapman, because things are often more complex than they seem.



There is fiction in the space between
The lines on your page of memories
Write it down but it doesn’t mean
You’re not just telling stories
There is fiction in the space between
You and me

There is fiction in the space between
You and reality
You will do and say anything
To make your everyday life
Seem less mundane
There is fiction in the space between
You and me

There’s a science fiction in the space between
You and me
A fabrication of a grand scheme
Where I am the scary monster
I eat the city and as I leave the scene
In my spaceship I am laughing
In your remembrance of your bad dream
There’s no one but you standing

Leave the pity and the blame
For the ones who do not speak
You write the words to get respect and compassion
And for posterity
You write the words and make believe
There is truth in the space between

There is fiction in the space between
You and everybody
Give us all what we need
Give us one more sad sordid story
But in the fiction of the space between
Sometimes a lie is the best thing
Sometimes a lie is the best thing

I do not know if anyone posted this but I will

"It's My Life"-Bon Jovi



This ain't a song for the brokenhearted
No silent prayer for the faith departed
And I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice when I shout it out loud

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive

(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, "I did it my way"
I just wanna live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow's getting harder, make no mistake
Luck ain't even lucky, gotta make your own breaks

It's my life
And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive
[ From: www.elyrics.net/read/b/bon-jovi-lyrics/it_s-my-life-lyrics.html ]

(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, "I did it my way"
I just wanna live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life

You better stand tall
When they're calling you out
Don't bend, don't break
Baby, don't back down

It's my life
It's now or never
'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive

(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, "I did it my way"
I just wanna live while I'm alive

(It's my life)
And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive

(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, "I did it my way"
I just wanna live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life!

The song really puts emphasis on that tomorrow is never given that we all have to live for today, as hard as it may be, its all we got. We need to be open about what we believe and not be afraid of what lies outside our comfort box or what may be on the horizon. Embrace it and make it YOUR life

Drowning (Face Down)
Saving Abel
Single



"Drowning (Face Down)"

Times before I walked through the valley
Below the sun
I've wandered endlessly and waited for
My time to come

I think I'm drowning
Can someone lend a hand?
Can someone save me?
Cause I don't think I can

I've gone too far to turn around
It's hard to reach for you
When I'm lying face down
I can't relieve my soul
I'm lost in a moment
Lying face down

Returning home I find myself
Wishing I was already gone
But how long does it take to find me
Well I'm waiting for someone

I think I'm drowning
Can someone lend a hand?
Can someone save me?
Cause I don't think I can

I've gone too far to turn around
It's hard to reach for you
When I'm lying face down
I can't relieve my soul
I'm lost in a moment
Lying face down

I've gone too far to turn around
It's hard to reach for you
When I'm lying face down
I can't relieve my soul
I'm lost in a moment
Lying, Lying

I've gone too far to turn around
I've gone too far to turn around
In a moment
Lying face down

At my walk in life right now this makes sense. I cannot turn back to go on the path I had just walked, but keep treking onwards in hope that someone will join me on the path. Though I may be drowning if a figurative pool of sorrow, I am still loved be others and have a future ahead. I need help though, and the Force and the people that believe in it are there to help

"Hero"- Skillet



I'm just a step away
I'm just a breath away
Losing my faith today
Falling off the edge today

I am just a man
Not superhuman
I'm not superhuman
Someone save me from the hate

It's just another war
Just another family torn
Falling from my faith today
Just a step from the edge
Just another day in the world we live

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero, save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero will save me just in time

I've gotta fight today
To live another day
Speaking my mind today
My voice will be heard today

I've gotta make a stand
But I am just a man
I'm not superhuman
My voice will be heard today

It's just another war
Just another family torn
My voice will be heard today
It's just another kill
The countdown begins to destroy ourselves

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero, save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero will save me just in time
(From: www.elyrics.net/read/s/skillet-lyrics/hero-lyrics.html)

I need a hero to save my life
I need a hero, just in time
Save me just in time
Save me just in time

Who's gonna fight for what's right?
Who's gonna help us survive?
We're in the fight of our lives
And we're not ready to die

Who's gonna fight for the weak?
Who's gonna make 'em believe?
I've got a hero, I've got a hero
Living in me

I'm gonna fight for what's right
Today I'm speaking my mind
And if it kills me tonight
I will be ready to die

A hero's not afraid to give his life
A hero's gonna save me just in time

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero, save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero will save me just in time

(I need a hero)
Who's gonna fight for what's right?
Who's gonna help us survive?

(I need a hero)
Who's gonna fight for the weak?
Who's gonna make 'em believe?
I've got a hero

I need a hero
A hero's gonna save me just in time


THe song is speaks to me and has guided me to believe that I am the protector, just like what we learn during our time as initiates. The song is centered that there is a Hero in us all, and that there are the heroes of everyday that have stepped up to the call. We must choose to do so, or wait for it, We will all experience the time in our life that will open our eyes to this realization.

i am so happy that i came across this thread as i find the songs very interesting when i think about it. it was really another boring day in the office and this really made my day worthwhile as i have been searching for the songs so that i may listen to them although i have yet to find a good song to post hopefully there will be more people sharing in this thread too.

Yes, I know someone will say something... but have you listened to the lyrics?

    • Quote: I will be laughed at scoffed at ridiculed and attacked along the way not only by outsiders but those who are family and friends and not to mention my fellow brothers and sisters of the Order..Is anyone else willing to undergo this? Not sure. Like i said before, i sence alot of haste in you. Haste can make you overlook choices wich you have to make along the way. At this point i am not willing to, if something is born way prematurely, it will die no matter how much of the Force it carries with it. I will not take a beating for that. Quote: Follow me or dont is your choice.. It is hard to follow something or someone if the shoes dont quite fit. They would get me where i would like to go but the blisters will hinder me on taking another step forward after i reached my destenation. Quote: I offer my life so yours may be better... Galant as this gesture it might be, only i can make my life better for I am responsible for my own life. As how you know me ckott i am doubtfull, it is in my nature, i understand you want to trust your feelings that somehow occur and sprout from your dreams. But dont get me wrong but feelings sometimes try to trick you when walking in the dreamworld. I had spoken to you about that dream where i fell in love with somebody who i didnt know. Woke up in love, only to realise my dreams had tricked me! I am more in love with my wife everyday. Feelings tend just like emotions to spike in strange ways. Now at the point of speculating, what if you say is true, how frustrating this must be, to know your truth but no one seems to get it. I can give you no advice on that. Wich of i might be a help is how to channel your feelings, relax a bit, for a heavy topic like yours is a hard burden to carry. Try not to jump cases in hope to get to your destenation sooner. Take a step back, expose vulnerability. Even if you feel like knowing it all, hold in those thoughts you must for it can be overwhelming the ones you try to side with. As always i am neutral, i hope my thought of things will help you to think some things trough. -Doomeniek

    • Jediism, connect multiple communitys and orders. [... (Last post by Akkarin)
    • Quote: Interested in creating a global Jedi community under one governing body -- not so much. As I have said before, making one central Jedi religion would most likely (as for right now anyway) incline us toward a dogmatic and orthodoxy prone Doctrine, clearly defining and/or delimiting what is Jedi and what is not Jedi, creating the us/them - in-group/out-group divisions not only between Jedi and the rest of the World but also within whatever chaotic 'Order' may be the result. This extract is from a paper entitled "Making Moral Decisions" by Rowan Atkinson the former Archbishop of Canterbury. Quote: And it would be easy to resolve [differences in the Christian faith] if Christians had no concern for consistency, no belief that the church ought to speak coherently to its environment about discerning the difference between ways that lead to life and ways that lead to death. We want our faith to be more than just what we learn from those who are familiar and whom we instinctively trust, because we remember - or we should remember - how the faith moved out from the familiar territory of the eastern Mediterranean to become 'naturalised' in other cultures. Tribalism is never enough. Yet when we begin to put our insights together, deep and sometimes agonising conflict appears. What are we to do? I won't type it all out because it's 15 pages long and not particularly interesting, but a student has to read what a student has to read... lol I just thought it had some bearing on us Jedi.
