Tourniquet Lyrics

Evanescence

 

I tried to kill the pain,
But only brought more.
(so much more)
Iím dying,
And Iím pouring, crimson regret, 
and betrayal.
 
Iím dying,
Praying,
Bleeding, &
Screaming.
 
Am I too lost to be saved ?
 Am I too lost ?
 
My God! 
My tourniquet,
Return to me salvation.
My God! 
My tourniquet,
Return to me salvation.
 
Do you remember me ?
Lost for so long.
Will you be on the other side ?
Will you forgive me ?
 
Iím dying,
Praying,
Bleeding, &
Screaming.
 
Am I too lost to be saved ?
Am I too lost ?
 
My God! 
My tourniquet,
Return to me salvation.
My God! 
My tourniquet,
Return to me salvation.
 
Return to me salvation
 
(I want to die!)
 
My god! my tourniquet,
Return to me salvation.
My god! my tourniquet,
Return to me salvation.
 
My wounds cry for the grave.
My soul cries, for deliverance.
Will I be denied ?
Christ! 
Tourniquet!
 
My suicide.

 

 

I think Iím Paranoid

Garbage

 

You can look, but you canít touch
I donít think I like you much
Heaven knows what a girl can do
Heaven knows what youíve got to prove


I think Iím paranoid
And complicated
I think Iím paranoid
Manipulated

 

Bend me
Break me
Anyway you need me
All I want is you

Bend me
Break me
Breaking down is easy
All I want is you

I fall down just to give you a thrill
Prop me up with another pill
If I should fail, if I should fold
I nailed my faith to the sticking pole

I think Iím paranoid
Manipulated
I think Iím paranoid
Too complicated

Bend me
Break me
Anyway you need me
All I want is you

Bend me
Break me
Breaking down is easy
All I want is you

I think Iím paranoid
I think Iím paranoid

Bend me
Break me
Anyway you need me
All I want is you

Bend me
Break me
Breaking down is easy
All I want is you

Steal me, deal me, anyway you heal me
Maim me, tame me, you can never change me
Love me, like me, come ahead and fight me
Please me, tease me, go ahead and leave me

Bend me
Break me
Anyway you need me
As long as I want you baby itís alright

 

Bend me
Break me
Anyway you need me
As long as I want you baby itís alright

 

 

Last Resort

Papa Roach

 

Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort,

Suffocation, no breathing
Don't give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding


This is my last resort

Cut my life into pieces

Iíve reached my last resort

Suffocation, no breathing

Donít give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding

Do you even care if I die bleeding?

 

Would it be wrong, would it be right ?
If I took my life tonight?

Chance are that I might.

Mutilation out of sight,

and I'm contemplating suicide

 

Cause I'm losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine

Losing my sight, Losing my mind

Wish somebody would tell me Iím fine


 
I'm running and I'm crying


I never realized I was spread too thin
Till it was too late and I was empty within
Hungry, feeding on chaos and living in sin
Downward spiral, where do I begin


It all started when I lost my mother
No love for myself and no love for another
Searching to find a love upon a higher level
Finding nothing but questions and devils


Cause I'm losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine

losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine

 

Nothing's alright,

Nothing is fine
I'm running and I'm crying

Iím crying

Iím crying

Iím crying

 

I can't go on living this way

 

Canít go On Living this way

Nothingís All Right !

 

 

Fine Again

Seether

 

It seems like every days the same
and Iím left to discover on my own
It seems like everything is gray
and thereís no color to behold

 

They say itís over and Iím fine again, yeah
Try to stay sober feels like Iím dying here

And I am aware now

Of how everythingís gonna be fine

One day
Too late,

Iím in hell.

 

I am prepared now,
Seems everyoneís gonna be fine
One day

Too late,

Just as well

I feel the dream in me expire
and thereís no one left to blame it on
I hear you label me a liar
cause I canít seem to get this through

 

You say itís over, I can sigh again, yeah
Why try to stay sober when Iím dying here

And I am aware now

Of how everythingís gonna be fine

One day
Too late,

Iím in hell

 

I am prepared now,
seems everyoneís gonna be fine
One day too late

Just as well

And Iím not scared now.
I must assure you,
Youíre never gonna get away

 

And Iím not scared now.
And Iím not scared now.

No?

I am aware now of how
Of how everythingís gonna be fine

One day
Too late,

Iím in hell

 

I am prepared now
Seems everyoneís gonna be fine
One day

Too late, just as well

 

I am prepared now,
seems everythingís gonna be fine

 

For me
For me, for myself.
For me, for me, for myself
For me, for me, for myself

She never mentions the word addiction
In certain company

Pulls those shades down tight

The painís gonna make everything alright

Says she talks to angels,
They call her out by her name

She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket
She wears a cross around her neck

And the cross is someone she has not met, not yet

Unwell

Matchbox 20

 

All day staring at the ceiling

Making friends with shadows on my wall

All night hearing voices telling me

That I should get some sleep

Because tomorrow might be good for something

 

Hold on

Feeling like I'm headed for a breakdown

And I don't know why

 

 

But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell

I know right now you can't tell

But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see

A different side of me

 

I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired

I know right now you don't care

But soon enough you're gonna think of me

And how I used to be...me

 

I'm talking to myself in public

Dodging glances on the train

And I know,

I know they've all been talking about me

I can hear them whisper

And it makes me think there must be something wrong with me

Out of all the hours thinking

Somehow I've lost my mind

 

But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell

I know right now you can't tell

But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see

A different side of me

 

I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired

I know right now you don't care

But soon enough you're gonna think of me

And how I used to be

 

I've been talking in my sleep

Pretty soon they'll come to get me

Yeah, they're taking me away

 

But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell

I know right now you can't tell

But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see

A different side of me

 

I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired

I know right now you don't care

But soon enough you're gonna think of me

And how I used to be

 

Yeah, how I used to be

How I used to be

Well, I'm just a little unwell

How I used to be

How I used to be

I'm just a little unwell

 

 

Bent

Matchbox 20

 

If I fall along the way
Pick me up and dust me off
And if I get too tired to make it
Be my breath so I can walk

If I need some other love
Give me more than I can stand
And when my smile gets old and faded
Wait around I'll smile again

Shouldn't be so complicated
Just hold me and then
Just hold me again

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together

You're breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent

If I couldn't sleep could you sleep
Could you paint me better off
Could you sympathize with my needs
I know you think I need a lot

I started out clean but I'm jaded
Just phoning it in
Just breaking the skin

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together

You're breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent

Start bending me
It's never enough
I feel all your pieces

Start bending me
Keep bending me until I'm completely broken in

Shouldn't be so complicated
Just touch me and then
Just touch me again

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together

You're breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together

You're breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent

 

I Go to Extremes

Billy Joel

 

Call me a joker, call me a fool
Right at this moment I'm totally cool
Clear as a crystal, sharp as a knife
I feel like I'm in the prime of my life
Sometimes it feels like I'm going too fast
I don't know how long this feeling will last
Maybe it's only tonight

Darling I don't know why I got to extremes
Too high or too low there ain't no in-betweens
And if I stand or I fall
It's all or nothing at all
Darling I don't know why I got to extremes

Sometimes I'm tired, sometimes I'm shot
Sometimes I don't know how much more I've got
Maybe I'm headed over the hill
Maybe I've set myself up for the kill


Tell me how much do you think you can take
Until the heart in you is starting to break?
Sometimes it feels like it will

Darling I don't know why I go to extremes
Too high or too low there ain't no in-betweens
You can be sure when I'm gone
I won't be out there too long
Darling I don't know why I got to extremes

Out of the darkness, into the light
Leaving the scene of the crime
Either I'm wrong or I'm perfectly right every time

 

Sometimes I lie awake, night after night
Coming apart at the seams
Eager to please, ready to fight
Why do I go to extremes?

And if I stand or I fall
It's all or nothing at all

Darling I don't know why I go to extremes
Too high or too low there ain't no in-betweens

 

And if I stand of I fall
It's all or nothing at all
Darling I don't know why I go to extremes

No I don't know why I go to extremes
Too high or too low there ain't no in-betweens

 

You can be sure when I'm gone
I won't be out there too long
Darling I don't know why I go to extremes
