So I'm in love with Snow Patrol. Practically married to the lot of them. All of their lyrics are beautiful and wonderful, but particulary 'Set the Fire to the Third Bar featuring Martha Wainwright.

Set the Fire to the Third Bar

by Snow Patrol


I find the map and draw a straight line
Over rivers, farms, and state lines
The distance from 'A' to where you'd 'be'
It's only finger-lengths that I see
I touch the place where I'd find your face
My fingers in creases of distant dark places

I hang my coat up in the first bar
There is no peace that I've found so far
The laughter penetrates my silence
As drunken men find flaws in science

Their words mostly noises
Ghosts with just voices
Your words in my memory
Are like music to me

I'm miles from where you are,
I lay down on the cold ground
I, I pray that something picks me up
And sets me down in your warm arms

After I have travelled so far
We'd set the fire to the third bar
We'd share each other like an island
Until exhausted, close our eyelids
And dreaming, pick up from
The last place we left off
Your soft skin is weeping
A joy you can't keep in

I'm miles from where you are,
I lay down on the cold ground
And I, I pray that something picks me up
and sets me down in your warm arms

I'm miles from where you are,
I lay down on the cold ground
and I, I pray that something picks me up
and sets me down in your warm arms


If I can't hear the music, and the audience is gone,

I'll dance here on my own.

I cried when I listened to the lyrics of a Trace Adkins song called 'Till the Last Shot's Fired'. I cried because I have one brother who will soon be an officer in the army, a friend who will probably end up as an officer in the air force, another friend who recently joined the navy, and yet another friend who is going to sign up for the army as soon as he's old enough.

I was there in the winter of '64
When we camped in the ice
at Nashville's doors
Three hundred miles our trail had led
We barely had time to bury our dead
When the Yankees charged and the colors fell
Overton hill was a living hell
When we called retreat it was almost dark
I died with a grapeshot in my heart

Say a prayer for peace
For every fallen son
Set my spirit free
Let me lay down my gun
Sweet mother Mary I'm so tired
But I can't come home 'til
the last shot's fired

In June of 1944
I waited in the blood of Omaha's shores
Twenty-one and scared to death
My heart poundin' in my chest
I almost made the first seawall
When my friends turned and saw me fall
I still smell the smoke, I can taste the mud
As I lay there dying from a loss of blood

Say a prayer for peace
For every fallen son
Set my spirit free
Let me lay down my gun
Sweet mother Mary I'm so tired
But I can't come home 'til
the last shot's fired

I'm in the fields of Vietnam,
The mountains of Afghanistan
And I'm still hopin', waitin', prayin'
I did not die in vain

Say a prayer for peace
For every fallen son
Set our spirits free
Let us lay down our guns
Sweet mother Mary we're so tired
But we can't come home 'til
the last shot's fired
'Til the last shot's fired

[Choir:]
Say a prayer for peace (for peace)
For our daughters and our sons
Set our spirits free (set us free)
Let us lay down our guns

[Trace:]
Sweet mother Mary, we're so tired
But we can't come home (No
we can't come home)

[Choir:]
'Til the last shot's fired

Here is a link to the song:
http://youtu.be/A7_0v5zZB94

EDIT:

The first verse is about the Battle of Nashville, and it's different because it's from a confederate soldier's POV. The second verse is about D-Day when allied forces and free french forces made their first attempt in trying to liberate france from german occupation. The last verse is about the more recent conflicts. And the last bit sung by the choir is actually sung by the West Point Academy cadet glee club.


Why not forget about being normal and live for him?

I love the lyrics to Home to Stay and To Where You Are by Josh Groban.
My favorite lyric from To Where You Are is this:
"I believe that angles breathe and love will live on and never leave.."
And then my signature is a favorite lyric as well....
