Tears of the Dragon - Bruce Dickinson



For too long now
There were secrets in my mind
For too long now
There were things I should have said
In the darkness
I was stumbling for the door
To find a reason
To find the time,the place,the hour

Waiting for the winter sun

And the cold light of day
The misty ghosts of childhood fears
The pressure is building
And I can't stay away

I throw myself into the sea

Release the wave
Let it wash over me
To face the fear
I once believed
The tears of the dragon
For you and for me

Where I was

I had wings that couldn't fly
Where I was
I had tears I couldn't cry
My emotions
Frozen in an icy lake
I couldn't feel them
Until the ice began to break

I have no power over this

You know I'm afraid
The walls I built are crumbling
The water is moving
I'm slipping away

I throw myself into the sea

Release the wave
Let it wash over me
To face the fear
I once believed
The tears of the dragon
For you and for me

Slowly I awake

Slowly I rise
The walls I built are crumbling
The water is moving
I'm slipping away

I throw myself into the sea

Release the wave
Let it wash over me
To face the fear
I once believed
The tears of the dragon
For you and for me

When Then Is Now - Lisa Chappell



When the world stops running
and looks me in the eye
and starts to answer all my questions why
when God is patient and so am I
I’ll be happy

When life goes simply from a to b

and the pearly white flags are flowing free
hope not blood is the story that leads
I’ll be happy

When my teeth stop hurting

and my bird stops hissing
and my doubts go missing I’ll be free
ooh, ooh I’ll be happy

When my teeth stop hurting

and my bird stops hissing
and my doubts go missing I’ll be free
ooh, ooh I’ll be happy

When then is now

when then is now
when then is now
when then is now

When our children's tears are not black stains

and our brothers and sisters don’t die in vain
when our mothers are free to breathe again
I’ll be happy

When we breathe in love and not bad air

when we call you friend anywhere
when our politicians really start to care
I’ll be happy

When my teeth stop hurting

and my bird stops hissing
and my doubts go missing I’ll be free
ooh, ooh, I’ll be happy

When then is now

when then is now
when then is now
when then is now

When our minds expand

for more than one right
when we speak the words
that’ll stop the fight
when we all stop and look inside
I’ll be happy

When the father forgives

by the dying daughters side
when there’s no such thing
as youth suicide
when we’re all high on the joy of life
I’ll be happy

When my teeth stop hurting

and my bird stops hissing
and my doubts go missing I’ll be free
ooh, ooh I’ll be happy

When my teeth stop hurting

and my bird stops hissing
and my doubts go missing I’ll be free
ooh, ooh I’ll be happy

When then is now

when then is now
when then is now
when then is now

My Happy Ending - Avril Lavigne



So much for my happy ending
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh...

Let's talk this over

It's not like we're dead
Was it something I did?
Was it something You said?
Don't leave me hanging
In a city so dead
Held up so high
On such a breakable thread

You were all the things I thought I knew

And I thought we could be

You were everything, everything that I wanted
We were meant to be, supposed to be, but we lost it
And all of the memories, so close to me, just fade away
All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh...

You've got your dumb friends

I know what they say
They tell you I'm difficult
But so are they
But they don't know me
Do they even know you?
All the things you hide from me
All the shit that you do


You were all the things I thought I knew
And I thought we could be


It's nice to know that you were there

Thanks for acting like you cared
And making me feel like I was the only one
It's nice to know we had it all
Thanks for watching as I fall
And letting me know we were done

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh...
So much for my happy ending
