    Songs that help you carry on

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by stormjinx, Oct 29, 2017.

    Post lyrics/link to your favorite song to get you through rough times.....


    Mine is probably "Dream Fighter" by Perfume. The lyrics are translated from Japanese:


    Aim for the best, to go on a never-ending journey
    It's surely proof that we're living
    Oh! Yeah! Reality can beat us down pretty badly, but
    Surely, look forward and walk, Dream Fighter

    Hey, this "normal" that everyone talks about
    I guess it's probably set in stone
    I'm close to ideals not in the middle of everything
    But "normal" still just isn't enough

    Until the moment I think "I was put here like this"
    Until reaching the far, far yonder

    Aim for the best, to go on a never-ending journey
    It's surely proof that we're living
    Even if it's painful
    You will surely, always, possess the strength to never give up
    So we kept running, too YEAH!
    Every tear you spill is a treasure oh! YEAH!
    Oh! Yeah! Reality can beat us down pretty badly, but
    Surely, look forward and walk, Dream Fighter

    Hey, this "future" that everyone talks about
    I guess it's probably set in stone
    The light reaches out, not the darkness
    But "normal" still just isn't enough

    Until the moment we think "I was put here like this"
    Until reaching the far, far yonder

    Aim for the best, to go on a never-ending journey
    It's surely proof that we're living
    Even if it's painful
    You will surely, always, possess the strength to never give up
    So we kept running, too YEAH!
    Every tear you spill is a treasure oh! YEAH!
    Oh! Yeah! Reality can beat us down pretty badly, but
    Surely, look forward and walk, Dream Fighter

    Where cushions are comfy, and straps hold firm.


    And one that is just an instrumental. :)

    I mainly listen to sad songs during rough times, I'm not quite sure why though.

    As I mentioned in the sad song thread, I really like Twenty One pilots's Anathema


    ETA: Another really good one by Tyler Joseph is Drown

    Second to the right, and straight on till morning.
    This is a song I heard long ago (in early 2000) on the radio in the car when heading back home from a one-day skiing trip with my family.
    I clearly remember it was far from a troubleless period of my life, but this song was back then - and still is - such a shot of hope and sunshine that I can't help
    but feel hopeful everytime I hear it. Like life has sense and it's worth living it.

    ...and also this. I'm totally not partisan towards the early 2000's.

    I'm another one that goes for sad songs when I hit rough times, I guess I find some sort of solace with words and sound that resonates with how I feel?

    The Lost Song part 2 by Anathema


    And the current love for picking myself back up after a bit of a mope:

    Again from 'Your Lie In April' (Just, seriously DON'T watch the anime if you want to feel good.)

    This is such an amazing thread! Music has been an escape for me for so long, specifically my favorite band, Green Day. I actually got a timehop thing from Facebook that I had posted this time last year of a certain song. I know a lot of people think Green Day is overrated, or sold out, or, whatever... but for so many years they have been a place of comfort for me. Sometimes, I find myself getting so bogged down by life that it's like I'm not breathing, but then I listened to this song and realize, I am still breathing. It kind of helps me put things in perspective.

    Open fire
    On the desire of the man
    Open fire
    With strife we'll strike down the hand

    Really bleak industrial shit. Mainly Front Line Assembly, Fear Factory, and Tactical Sekt. I listen to death metal, so it's light by my standards, but I enjoy the atmosphere a lot more.


    Rows and rows of crosses
    Standing in the sand
    Statues of the fallen
    Watching over the land

    The tombs of unknown soldiers
    Lay tilted in decay
    Another year passes
    On this remembrance day

    A solid favorite of mine for over a decade.

    I'll never tire of it.

    And especially these two:





    Gotta love those lyrics:

    Birds do it, bees do it.
    Even educated flees do it.
    Let's do it, let's fall in love.

    This one is good for scotch and cigar nights:
