songs for November

sorry for being a couple of days late again
I've noticed that the participation has gone down a lot lately. Are we picking bad songs? Or is school and work keeping you occupied?

NOTE! We have made a change when it comes to commenting on the Hall of Fame. From now on we want you to tell us if you want a banner or not. This is cause the banner maker extra ordinaire (ravenlullaby) now has school to deal with and therefore more limited time. And it's not always that people want banners. Now, both her and me (me being pnr, mod in charge of updates and whatnot) have nothing against making banners, so if you want one don't feel like a burden at all, ok?

the main song of this month is one of pnr's favourites from when she was a kid, and I still think it's beautiful. All the songs this month have little tricky titles, but if you think about them they shouldn't be too hard. For example the main song... point blank doesn't have to refer to guns you know.

Happy iconing!


Month: November
Song: Point Blank by Bruce Springsteen

It could happen that there are misspellings in the lyrics since we just copy and paste. If you notice that, please inform the mods (and make the icons with the correct spelling ^.~)

This is the song you're challenged to include in your icons:


Point Blank by Bruce Springsteen

Do you still say your prayers little darlin' do you go to bed at night
Prayin' that tomorrow, everything will be alright
But tommorow's fall in number in number one by one
You wake up and you're dying you don't even know what from

Well they shot you point blank you been shot in the back
Baby point blank you been fooled this time little girl that's a fact
Right between the eyes baby, point blank right between the pretty lies that
they tell
Little girl you fell

You grew up where young girls they grow up fast
You took what you were handed and left behind what was asked
but what they asked baby wasn't right you didn't have to live that life,
I was gonna be your Romeo you were gonna be my Juliet
These days you don't wait on Romeo's you wait on that welfare check and on all the pretty things that you can't ever have and on all the promises

That always end up point blank, shot between the eyes
Point blank like little white lies you tell to ease the pain
You're walkin' in the sights, girl of point blank
and it's one false move and baby the lights go out

Once I dreamed we were together again baby you and me
Back home in those old clubs the way we used to be
We were standin' at the bar it was hard to hear
The band was playin' loud and you were shoutin' somethin' in my ear
You pulled my jacket off and as the drummer counted four
You grabbed my hand and pulled me out on the floor
You just stood there and held me, then you started dancin' slow
And as I pulled you tighter I swore I'd never let you go

Well I saw you last night down on the avenue
Your face was in the shadows but I knew that it was you
You were standin' in the doorway out of the rain
You didn't answer when I called out your name
You just turned, and then you looked away like just another stranger waitin' to get blown away

Point blank, right between the eyes
Point blank, right between the pretty lies you fell
Point blank, shot right through the heart

Yea point blank, you've been twisted up till you've become just another part of it
Point blank, you're walkin' in the sights
Point blank, livin' one false move just one false move away
Point blank, they caught you in their sights
Point blank, did you forget how to love, girl, did you forget how to fight.
Point blank they must have shot you in the head
Cause point blank, bang bang baby you're dead.




Alternatives

Dirty Little Secret by Sarah McLachlan

If I had the chance, love
I would not hesitate
To tell you all the things I never said before
Don't tell me it's too late

Cause I've relied on my illusions
To keep me warm at night
But I denied in my capacity to love
I am willing, to give up this fight

I've been up all night drinking
To drown my sorrow down
Nothing seems to help me since you went away
I'm so tired of this town
Where every tongue is wagging
When every back is turned
Their telling secrets that should never be revealed
There's nothing to be gained from this
But disaster..
Here's a good one..
Did you hear about my friend
He's embarrassed to be seen now
because we all know his sins

If I had the chance love
You know, I would not hesitate
To tell you all the things I never said before
Don't tell me it's too late

Cause I've relied on my illusions
To keep me warm at night
But I denied in my capacity to love
I am willing, to give up this fight
Oh, I am willing to give up this fight..




Fairytale Gone Bad by Sunrise Avenue

This is the end you know
Lady, the plans we had went all wrong
We aint nothing but fight and shout and tears

We got to a point I cant stand
Ive had it to the limit; I cant be your man
I aint more than a minute away from walking

We cant cry the pain away
We cant find a need to stay
I slowly realized theres nothing on our side

Out of my life, Out of my mind
Out of the tears that we cant deny
We need to swallow all our pride
And leave this mess behind
Out of my head, Out of my bed
Out of the dreams we had, theyre bad
Tell them its me who made you sad
Tell them the fairytale gone bad

Another night and I bleed
They all make mistakes and so did we
But we did something we can never turn back right

Find a new one to fool
Leave and dont look back. I wont follow
We have nothing left. Its the end of our time

We cant cry the pain away
We cant find a need to stay
Theres no more rabbits in my hat to make things right

Out of my life, Out of my mind
Out of the tears we cant deny
We need to swallow all our pride
And leave the mess behind
Out of my head, Out of my bed
Out of the dreams we had, theyre bad
Tell them its me who made you sad
Tell them the fairytale gone bad
