Yeah, so let's lighten up a bit on this one.



So pick one artist. Then pick out a few or more lyrics from their songs you find relatable--even if it's taken out of context.

Lorde


We gladiate, but I guess we're really fighting ourselves
Roughing up our minds so we're ready when the killing time comes.


Don't you think that it's boring how people talk
Making smart with their words again, well I'm bored


All my fake friends and all of their noise
Complain about work
They're studying business, I study the floor


You could try and take us
But we're the gladiators


We're never done with killing time
Can I kill it with you?
Till the veins run red and blue
We come around here all the time
Got a lot to not do, let me kill it with you

Kanye West

Can't Tell Me Nothing:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PD7f7AsSDbo
"Excuse me, is you saying something?
Uh, uh, you can't tell me nothing"

Power:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouwCWDbBskU
"My child-like creativity, purity and honesty is honestly being crowded by these grown thoughts"

Eminem

Space Bound:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJ2bjStuwyY
"There's no limit on how far I would go, no boundaries, no lengths.
Why do we say that until we get that person that we think's gonna be that one and then once we get 'em it's never the same?
You want them when they don't want you.
Soon as they do feelings change."

Drake

Trophies:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkSFh6HMUtQ
"What's the move? Can I tell truth? If I was doing this for you, then I have nothing left to prove.
This for me, though, I'm just tryna stay alive and take care of my people, and they don't have no award for that.
Trophies.
Trophies.
And they don't have no award for that. Shit don't come with trophies, ain't no envelopes to open. I just do it 'cause I'm supposed to."

Logic

Buried Alive:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqJ24z5ys4U
"I feel like the grass is green. And everything I do is unseen. But I know that’s just in my mind.I know everything is just in my mind.

Death and taxes that’s all we given.
You can make a life but can’t make a living. You can make it work but that still ain't driven. Give a lot but that still ain't giving. Livin' life like this ain’t real though. Every night like this I feel so dead wrong. Collision is head on. My vision is dead and gone. Perception of right and wrong. I been here so very long. Right here in this very song. Look around everything changes. Seem like everybody just strangers.
Don’t go outside cause it’s dangerous."

Growing Pains III:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mJZsv7BJlU
"Why must I open my eyes. I wish that I could stay asleep forever. Attain every goal I wanted and watch it repeat forever. Will it happen, maybe never. Maybe so, I got to know. But tell me why I picture myself at the top but I know that I’m dreaming. Will I wake up before I finally confront all my demons. Maybe not. All I know is this life I live I can’t live it no longer. Wish I was stronger, wish that I could survive."

Lights

Child:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMEnpSkxUhc
"Can't separate what I really need to know and what I just want to hear.
Maybe I'm alone. Maybe everybody's lost too. Looking for their own way out. Maybe, I don't know, maybe, I don't even want to...Just don't want to be let down. There is no sureness, I kind of just stumble along. There must be purpose in trying to keep on."

Face Up:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtgMSidl1zU
"It's late and I am tired, wish I could spark a smile. The place is flying high but right now I want to be low. Don't want to move an inch, let alone a million miles. And I don't want to go but I know I gotta go. I just want to feel alive. The times you don't wanna wake up 'cause in your sleep it's never over when you give up."

Taylor Swift

Innocent:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZM1-ADnjH5I
"Wasn't it easier in your firefly-catchin' days? When everything out of reach, someone bigger brought down to you.
Wasn't it beautiful runnin' wild 'til you fell asleep? Before the monsters caught up to you?"

Vanessa Carlton

More Than This:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77cFGvF_hms
"We all share the pain of our histories. But the ache goes away if you could see. This night under stars, well, I call it peace. If you say, I'll never need more than this."

"Want so much in this life, there's so much to be. We sail through our youth so impatiently. Until we see, that the years move along."

"Don't live in forgotten times. May this always remind you of the sea under the skies blue looking glass. Let's make this our story, let's live in the glory. Time, it fades away, precious as a song, 'cause someday we'll be gone."

Twilight:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMJbApULP8U
"Never cared. Never wanted. Never sought to see what flaunted.
So on purpose. So in my face. Couldn't see beyond my own place. And it was so easy not to behold what I could hold.
But you taught me I could change whatever came within these shallow days."

Whitesnake - Here I Go Again

"Here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An' I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time."



Oomph! - Gott ist ein Popstar

Gott ist ein Popstar - God is a popstar
Und die Show geht los - and the show begins
Gott ist ein Popstar - God is a popstar
Der Applaus ist groß. - the applause is large

A lot of songs are about past experiences or events like


"She was a fast machine she kept her motor clean
She was the best damn woman that I ever seen
She had the sightless eyes telling me no lies
Knocking me out with those American thighs
Taking more than her share
Had me fighting for air
She told me to come but I was already there
Cause the walls start shaking
The earth was quaking
My mind was aching
And we were making it
And you shook me all night long"


Or this, I remember a girl who really wanted me every time I hear this song

I close my eyes and see you before me
Think I would die if you were to ignore me
A fool could see just how much I adore you
I'd get down on my knees, I'd do anything for you

I don't want anybody else
When I think about you, I touch myself
Ooh, I don't want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

and then it ends with

I touch myself
I touch myself
I touch myself
I touch myself
I touch myself
I touch myself
I touch myself
I touch myself
I honestly do

I touch myself
I touch myself
I touch myself
I touch myself
I honestly do

I touch myself
I touch myself


This is a real song by the way

A long time ago, in a pub far away,
I sat on a barstool, just drinking away,
I couldn't hold it down, I guess I had too much
I felt a tremor in the force and then I lost my lunch
I woke up in a desert land, feeling hot and sick,
I saw a bearded man, he looked like some kind of hick,
He slowly waved his hand, and my pain was gone
He said let's go see Yoda, and I'll teach you this song.
-Dust Rhinos

And that is how I found myself in California.
