    I know there's a similar old thread but search doesn't work for me.

    Post your song lyrics and tell what the song means to you if you'd like.

    Reminds me of when we were going through a dry spell (romantically) for several years. We've been married for 30 years. It's back now but this song reminds me of that time.

    DAUGHTRY - Used TO

    You used to talk to me like
    I was the only one around.
    You used to lean on me like
    The only other choice was falling down.
    You used to walk with me like
    We had nowhere we needed to go,
    Nice and slow, to no place in particular.

    We used to have this figured out;
    We used to breathe without a doubt.
    When nights were clear, you were the first star that I'd see.
    We used to have this under control.
    We never thought.
    We used to know.
    At least there's you, and at least there's me.
    Can we get this back?
    Can we get this back to how it used to be?

    I used to reach for you when
    I got lost along the way.
    I used to listen.
    You always had just the right thing to say.
    I used to follow you.
    Never really cared where we would go,
    Fast or slow, to anywhere at all.

    We used to have this figured out;
    We used to breathe without a doubt.
    When nights were clear, you were the first star that I'd see.
    We used to have this under control.
    We never thought.
    We used to know.
    At least there's you, and at least there's me.
    Can we get this back?
    Can we get this back to how it used to be?

    I look around me,
    And I want you to be there
    'Cause I miss the things that we shared.
    Look around you.
    It's empty, and you're sad
    'Cause you miss the love that we had.

    You used to talk to me like
    I was the only one around,
    The only one around.

    We used to have this figured out;
    We used to breathe without a doubt.
    When nights were clear, you were the first star that I'd see.
    We used to have this under control.
    We never thought.
    We used to know.
    At least there's you, and at least there's me.
    Can we get this back?
    Can we get this back to how it used to be? Yeah.
    To how it used to be.
    To how it used to be, yeah.
    To how it used to be.
    To how it used to be.

    Ive always been able to identify with the lyrics in this one...
    The Affirmation written and performed by Savage Garden.


    Affirmation

    I believe the sun should never set upon an argument
    I believe we place our happiness in other people's hands
    I believe that junk food tastes so good because it's bad for you
    I believe your parents did the best job they knew how to do
    I believe that beauty magazines promote low self esteem
    I believe I'm loved when I'm completely by myself alone

    I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
    I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
    I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
    I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

    I believe you can't control or choose your sexuality
    I believe that trust is more important than monogamy
    I believe your most attractive features are your heart and soul
    I believe that family is worth more than money or gold
    I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair
    I believe the only ones who disagree are millionaires

    I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
    I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
    I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
    I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

    I believe forgiveness is the key to your unhappiness
    I believe that wedded bliss negates the need to be undressed
    I believe that God does not endorse TV evangelists
    I believe in love surviving death into eternity

    I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
    I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
    I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
    I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

    Opeth - Blackwater Park

    Confessor
    Of the tragedies in man
    Lurking in the core of us all
    The last dying call for the everlost
    Brief encounters, bleeding pain

    Lepers coiled neath the trees
    Dying men in bewildered soliloquies
    Perversions bloom round the bend
    Seekers, lost in their quest
    Ghosts of friends frolic
    under the waning moon

    It is the year of death
    Wielding his instruments
    Stealth sovereign reaper
    Touching us with ease

    Infecting the roots in an instant
    Burning crop of disease
    I am just a spectator
    An advocate documenting the loss

    Fluttering with conceit
    This doesn't concern me yet
    Still far from the knell
    Taunting their bereavement

    Mod round the dead
    Point fingers at the details
    Probing vomits for more
    Caught in unbridled suspense

    We have all lost it now
    Catching the flakes of dismay
    Born the travesty of man
    Regular pulse midst pandemonium
    You're plucked to the mass
    Parched with thirst for the wicked

    Sick liaisons raised this monumental mark
    The sun sets forever over Blackwater park
