Favourite lyrics

You might have seen my bio which is filled with lyrics, I tend to add 2 at a time in order to stick with the colour pattern but now you see my bio has gotten quite long so I thought to myself “I wish I had a place where I could write down some really cool lyrics” then my brain realised I could make my own wish come true and create a thread about it.

So please feel free to drop some cool lyrics!


I like to put my song lyrics in italics or 𝓉𝒽𝒾𝓈 𝒻𝑜𝓃𝓉 or 𝕥𝕙𝕚𝕤 𝕗𝕠𝕟𝕥 (I get them here)

Some of my favourite lyrics:

“They only pretend to like who I pretend to be
I had some fake a** friends (now I don’t)
‘Cause they only got half my back when I got what they need”

  • Fake a** friends

'Sorry if you got a problem with yourself
You tryna put it on me, I don’t need no help
From you
Shut up, yeah"

  • Talk so much

“There’s no room in war for feelings
Hurt me to the core, still healing
And I know you’re no good for me
So I try to forget the memories”

  • Remind me to forget

“Pull your knife out of my back
Your blood runs black
I was just surprised at how you turned on me so fast
I let you in
I held you close
My blood flows like a river 'cause I trusted you the most
And now I know it’s over”

  • knife out of my back

Don’t get me wrong, I love you.

But does that mean I have to meet your father?

When we are older you’ll understand

What I meant when I said no,

I don’t think life is

Quite that simple


Neko Case
God blessed me, I’m a free man
With no place free to go
I’m paralyzed and collared-tight
No pills for what I fear

Paper Kites
I only eat to fill me up
I only sleep to rest
I need a love just like you gave
I haven’t found it yet

I wanna taste love and pain
Wanna feel pride and shame
I don’t wanna take my time
Don’t wanna waste one line
I wanna live better days
Never look back and say
Could have been me


Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton - A Maid Needs a Maid

Bros before hoes
Is a rule, read the guidelines

You trouble me
Your breasts heave when you sing
Your mouth should be working for me
For free

Sewing up the fold
'Cause I’ve been laid up
Would you put on the fire for me
Draw the bath and remind me to eat?
You won’t need a real job
You won’t need a real job because I would love to pay for you
You could be a good wife to me

I would love to pay for you
You are the maid for me

Portions for Foxes - Rilo Kiley

There’s blood in my mouth
'Cause I’ve been biting my tongue all week
I keep on talking trash
But I never say anything
And the talking leads to touching
And the touching leads to sex
And then there is no mystery left


Wasurekaketeta ai no kaori yo
Ichido wa kizutsuita hazu no kokoro de
Shinjiaeru ni wa amari ni kanashisugiru

I began to forget the scent of love
My heart which remains scarred
Is too sorrowful to believe anymore

(Tatsuro Yamashita, “That Bewitching Scent”)

I’m just a freak here at the sideshow
Where all the people can look at me
Between the strong man and the tattooed lady
I’m here to look at, not to see

I’ve seen the hard looks and the empty stares
I’ve heard the sighs and silent screams
I’ve felt the pain that comes when no ones cares
Know the ache of your worst dreams

This is what a broken heart can do
There is no wire or strings
I’ve lost everything
Don’t be sure that it won’t happen to you

(Takako Mamiya, “What A Broken Heart Can Do”)

Ever since that day, I got hurt by love
My days and nights are upside down
While dancing at trendy discos
I’ve learned this magic… I’m sorry!

Don’t really fall in love with me
Love’s just a game, if I can have fun, that’s alright
Fancy clothes that bury my broken heart
Help me ease my loneliness

I’m just playing games, I know that’s plastic love
Dance to the plastic beat, another morning comes

(Mariya Takeuchi, “Plastic Love”)

I used to play at love
Love became an empty game
I walked away from love, I always had myself to blame
I hid my fragile ways away

(Tatsuro Yamashita, “Fragile”)

Can it be I stayed away too long
Did I leave your mind when I was gone
It’s not my thing trying to get back
But this time let me tell you where I’m at

You don’t have to worry cause I’m coming
Back to where I should have always stayed
And now I’ve heard the maybe to your story
And it’s enough love for me to stay

(Michael Jackson, “I Wanna Be Where You Are”)

I was wandering in the rain
Mask of life, feelin’ insane
Swift and sudden fall from grace
Sunny days seem far away
Kremlin’s shadow belittlin’ me
Stalin’s tomb won’t let me be
On and on and on it came
Wish the rain would just let me

How does it feel (How does it feel)
How does it feel
How does it feel
When you’re alone
And you’re cold inside

(Michael Jackson, “Stranger in Moscow”)

(I’ll add more later. I love way too many songs!)

It’s time for the glass to crack, cause’ I love imperfection. Even facts should be questioned

“I don’t listen to the haters man
I treat them like the enemy
I’ve had a couple of traitors man but now they know the penalty
I tell them see you later fam I do not need this jealousy
I got no time for failure man I wanna leave a legacy”

The line you’re faking all your pain yet you’re bleeding on a stage in the Melanie Martinez song Drama Club can be applied to so many things.
