Here I lie forever
Sorrow still remains
Will the water pull me down and wash it all away
Come and take me over
Welcome to the game
Will the current drag me down and carry me away
Suddenly the light begins to fade

HOPELESS
I'm falling down
FILTHY
I can't wake up
I can not hold on
I will not let go
WORTHLESS
It's over now
GUILTY
There's no way out
I can not hold on
I will not let go

Silent I go under
I am not afraid
I can see the daylight shine
And slowly drift away
Safe to say it's over
Sink into the grave
There is nothing left inside
But I am wide awake
I can hear the devil call my name

HOPELESS
I'm falling down
FILTHY
I can't wake up
I can not hold on
I will not let go
WORTHLESS
It's over now

Every time that I look in the mirror
all these lines on my face getting clearer
the past is gone
it went by like dusk to dawn
isn't that the way
everybody's got their dues in life to pay

yeah, I know nobody knows
where it comes and where it goes
I know it's everybody's sin
you got to lose to know how to win

half my life's in books' written pages
live and learn from fools and from sages
you know it's true
all the things come back to you

sing with me, sing for the years
sing for the laughter and sing for the tears
sing with me, if it's just for today
maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

Every time that I look in the mirror
all these lines on my face getting clearer
the past is gone
it went by like dusk to dawn
isn't that the way
everybody's got their dues in life to pay

How can I learn to let go,
Now that you have shown
That you are strong enough,
But I am not
How can I let the world rough you around
When I'm not there,
I can't protect you
Why does life have to rob you of your
Innocence and faith
For you to be a grown up?
The only thing that gives me strength
When I am deep in doubt
Is your nature

Oh, how you damage me
You never mean to
Oh, how you break my heart
And make me need you
Oh, you can crush me
Like a rose petal
Oh, how you damage me
You never mean to

My legacy, a string of losses
My god, I ask
How can you do this?
You made the sun
The world, your canvas
With all this I can see how I'm unimportant

In this dream
I am warm
There are hands in my hair
And it's good to be there

I wave my hand and nothing happens
I set my scene and I can't play it
I'd leave it to you but
It would turn out backwards
I'd like to believe you're not just reckless

And you are
Nostalgic while you are still living this
And it all
Snuck up while you weren't looking
And you are
Nostalgic while you are still living this
And you're sure
This is how you know you're living

I came to tell you
How we've all began
Nothing seems to work out right
I'm broken down again
So hold me now
And say it's not forever
Maybe someday
In time

Things will go my way
Things will go my way

I've pushed to get through
The crowds in twisted zone
Just to find I'm right back here
Doing what I'm told
So take my hand
Don't let me surrender
'Cuz maybe someday
Yeah, in time

Things will go my way
Things will go my way

For all the lives
I've tasted
Just looking for the truth
For all the dreams I'm chasing
What am I to do
With everything against me
The answers are all wrong
Open now, I'll find out
It was working all along

So hold me now
And say it's not forever
Maybe someday
In time

I haven't really ever found a place that I call home
I never stick around quite long enough to make it
I apologize that once again I'm not in love
But it's not as if I mind
that your heart ain't exactly breaking
It's just a thought, only a thought

But if my life is for rent and I don't lean to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

I've always thought
that I would love to live by the sea
To travel the world alone
and live my life more simply
I have no idea what's happened to that dream
Cos there's really nothing left here to stop me

It's just a thought, only a thought

But if my life is for rent and I don't learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

While my heart is a shield and I won't let it down
While I am so afraid to fail so I won't even try

So am I still waiting
For this world to stop hating
Can't find a good reason
Can't find hope to believe in

Drop dead
A bullet to my head
Your words are like a gun in hand
You can't change the state of the nation
We just need some motivation

These eyes
Have seen no conviction
Just lies and more contradiction
So tell me what would you say
I'd say it's time too late....

So am I still waiting
For this world to stop hating
Can't find a good reason
Can't find hope to believe in

Ignorance
And understanding
We're the first ones to jump in line
Out of step for what we believe in
But who's left to stop the bleeding

How far
Will we take this
It's not hard to see through the fakeness
So tell me what would you say
I'd say it's time too late

It's so hard to say that I'm sorry
I'll make everything alright
All these things that I've done
What have I become, and where'd I go wrong?
I don't mean to hurt just to put you first
I won't tell you lies
I will stand accused
With my hand on my heart
I'm just trying to say

I'm sorry
It's all that I can say
You mean so much
And I'd fix all that I've done
If I could start again
I'd throw it all away
To the shadows of regrets
And you would have the best of me

I know that I can't take back all of the mistakes
But I will try
Although it's not easy
I know you believe me
Cause I would not lie
Don't believe their lies
Told from jealous eyes
They don't understand
I won't break your heart
I won't bring you down
But I will have to say

I'm sorry
It's all that I can say

I tried to be perfect
But nothing was worth it
I don't believe it makes me real
I thought it'd be easy
But no one believes me
I meant all the things I said

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

This place is so empty
My thoughts are so tempting
I don't know how it got so bad
Sometimes it's so crazy
That nothing can save me
But it's the only thing that I have

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

On my own

I tried to be perfect
It just wasn't worth it
Nothing could ever be so wrong
It's hard to believe me

And if I lost the map
If I lost it all
Or fell into the trap
Then she'd call
'When you're tired of racing
And you find you never left the start
Come on baby
Don't let it break your heart'

Though heavily we bled
Still on we crawl
Try to catch a cannonball
And a slowly burning tide
Through my veins is flowing
From my shipwreck I heard her call

'When you're tired of aiming your arrows
Still you never hit the mark
Even in your rain and shadows
Still we're never going to part
Come on baby
Don't let it break your heart'

Love is just a history that they may prove
And when you’re gone I’ll tell them my religion’s you
When Punk-tius come to kill the king upon his throne
I’m ready for their stones.

I’ll dance, dance, dance
With my hands, hands, hands,
Above my head, head, head
Like Jesus, said
I’m gonna dance, dance, dance
With my hands, hands,
Hands above my head
Dance together
Forgive him before he’s dead because

I won’t cry for you
I won’t crucify the things you do
I won’t cry for you, see
When you’re gone I’ll still be bloody Mary

We are not just art for Michaelangelo
To carve.
He can’t rewrite the agro of my furied,
Heart.
I’ll wait on mountain tops in Paris cold
Je ne veux pas mourir toute seule

I’ll dance, dance, dance
With my hands, hands, hands,
Above my head, head, head

This is dedicated to Mary's childhood: her life, as you know, changed totally in a blink of an eye, bringing her whole world down. Even if this may seems quite obvious, I think these were the moments when she lost her faith in human feelings and family's love.

I still remember the world
From the eyes of a child
Slowly those feelings
Were clouded by what I know now

Where has my heart gone
An uneven trade for the real world
I want to go back to
Believing in everything and knowing nothing at all

I still remember the sun
Always warm on my back
Somehow it seems colder now

Where has my heart gone
Trapped in the eyes of a stranger
I want to go back to
Believing in everything

If I were a boy
Even just for a day
I’d roll outta bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted then go
Drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls
I’d kick it with who I wated
And I’d never get confronted for it.
Cause they’d stick up for me.

If I were a boy
I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I’d be a better man.
I’d listen to her
Cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted
Cause he’s taken you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

If I were a boy
I could turn off my phone
Tell evveryone it’s broken
So they’d think that I was sleepin’ alone
I’d put myself first
And make the rules as I go
Cause I know that she’d be faithful
Waitin’ for me to come home (to come home)

If I were a boy
I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl

I will endure till the end of time
Torn away from you

I pull away to face the pain
I close my eyes and drift away
Over the fear that I will never find
A way to heal my soul
And I will endure till the end of time
Torn away from you

My heart is broken
Sweet, sleep my dark angel
Deliver us from sorrow's hold
Or from my hard heart.

I can't go on living this way
And I can't go back the way I came
Shamed of this fear that I will never find
A way to heal my soul
And I will endure till the end of time
Half a life without you

My heart is broken
Sweet sleep, my dark angel
Deliver us

Change - open your eyes to the light
[inaudible]
Say goodbye, goodbye

My heart is broken
Release me, I can't hold on
Deliver us
My heart is broken
Sweet sleep, my dark angel

Under your spell again.
I can't say no to you.
Crave my heart and it's bleeding in your hand.
I can't say no to you.

Shouldn't have let you torture me so sweetly.
Now I can't let go of this dream.
I can't breathe but I feel...

Good enough,
I feel good enough for you.

Drink up sweet decadence.
I can't say no to you,
And I've completely lost myself, and I don't mind.
I can't say no to you.

Shouldn't let you conquer me completely.
Now I can't let go of this dream.
Can't believe that I feel...

Good enough,
I feel good enough.
It's been such a long time coming, but I feel good.

And I'm still waiting for the rain to fall.
Pour real life down on me.
'Cause I can't hold on to anything this good enough.
Am I good enough for you to love me too?

So take care what you ask of me,

So far away from knowing where I am going
I am trying hard to find out who I am
They all see that I don't know what I am doing
I say they don't hardly understand

Why can't they remember
What I will never forget
How these dreams come undone
When you're young

You give what you give cause they make you
Trapped inside a place that won't take you
And they want you to be what they make you
It's already over and done
When you're young

Everything seems perfect
Everything's okay
And it will all get better now
At least that's what they say
But I don't see it coming

You give what you give cause they make you
Trapped inside a place that won't take you
And they want you to be what they make you
It's already over and done
When you're young

Days really just seem longer
They say it's better this way

I guess I just got lost,
Being someone else,
I tried to kill the pain,
But nothing ever helps,
I left myself behind,
Somewhere along the way,
Hoping to come back around to find myself someday.

But lately I'm so tired of waiting for you,
To say that it's okay,
Tell me please,
Would you one time,
Let me be myself so I can shine,
With my own light,
And let me be myself.

Would you let me be myself?
Cause I'll never find my heart,
Behind someone else,
I'll never see the light of day,
Living in this cell,
It's time to make my way,
Into the world I knew,
And then take back all these times that I gave into you.

But lately I'm so tired of waiting for you,
To say that it's okay,
And tell me please,
Would you one time,
Let me be myself so I can shine,

I'm not supposed to be scared of anything,
But I don't know where I am
I wish that I could move but I'm exhausted
And nobody understands (how I feel)

I'm tryin' hard to breathe now,
But there's no air in my lungs.
There's no one here to talk to
And the pain inside is making me numb.

I try to hold this under control,
They can't help me, cause no one knows.

Now I'm goin' through changes, changes.
God, I feel so frustrated lately.
When I get suffocated, save me.
Now I'm goin' through changes, changes

Feelin' weak and weary
Walkin' through this world alone
Everything they say every word of it
Cuts me to the bone, (and I bleed)

I've got something to say
But now I've got nowhere to turn
It feels like I've been buried
Underneath all the weight of the world.

I try to hold this under control,

Everything is so dark
And I know there's something wrong
But I can't turn the light on
In that split second change
When you knew we couldn't hold on
I realized I'd lived to love you

Save yourself
Don't look back
Tearing us apart until its all gone
The only world i've ever known
Sleeps beneath the waves
What I remember

I won't give up on you
I can feel you in my heart
Just show me the way
I don't belong here - alone

I can still your face
Where its burned into my mind
I die every time i close my eyes
You're always there

Save yourself
Don't look back
Tearing us apart until its all gone
The only world i've ever known
Sleeps beneath the waves
But I'm the one who's drowning
We're not alone
I am lost and I can never go back home

Across the ocean

I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless lost under the surface
Don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)

I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I've become so tired so much more aware
I'm becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

Can't you see that you're smothering me
Holding too tightly afraid to lose control
Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
And every second I waste is more than I can take

Thought that I was strong
I know the words I need to say
Frozen in my place
I let the moment slip away

I've been screaming on the inside
And I know you feel the pain
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

Oh-woah-oh-woah-oh
Oh-woah-oh-woah-oh

Say its over, yes its over
But I need you anyway
Say you love me
But its not enough

Never meant to lie
But I'm not the girl you think you know
I know that I am with you
The more that I am all alone

I've been screaming on the inside
And I know you feel the pain
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

Oh-woah-oh-woah-oh

Say its over, yes its over
But I need you anyway
Say you love me
But its not enough

Not that I'm so different
Not that I don't see I'm dying

Many nights we prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe somehow you will
You will when you believe
In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seems like the summer bird
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I'm standing here
My heart's so full, I can't explain
Seeking faith and speakin' words
I never thought I'd say

There can be miracles

Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill

Seems like just yesterday
You were a part of me
I used to stand so tall
I used to be so strong
Your arms around me tight
Everything, it felt so right
Unbreakable, like nothin' could go wrong
Now I can't breathe
No, I can't sleep
I'm barely hanging on

Here I am, once again
I'm torn into pieces
Can't deny it, can't pretend
Just thought you were the one
Broken up, deep inside
But you won't get to see the tears I cry
Behind these hazel eyes

I told you everything
Opened up and let you in
You made me feel alright
For once in my life
Now all that's left of me
Is what I pretend to be
So together, but so broken up inside
'Cause I can't breathe
No, I can't sleep
I'm barely hangin' on

Here I am, once again
I'm torn into pieces
Can't deny it, can't pretend

Stop every clock
Stars are in shock
The river will flow to the sea
I wont let you fly
I wont say goodbye
I wont let you slip away from me

Take a look at my body,
look at my hands
there's so much here that I don't understand
Your face saving promises,
whispered like prayers
I don't need them.

Cuz I've been treated so wrong
I've been treated so long as if I'm becoming untouchable...

Well, contempt loves the silence
it thrives in the dark,
the fine winding tendrils that strangle the heart
They say that promises sweeten the blow
but I don't need them... no I don't need them.

I've been treated so wrong,
I've been treated so long as if I'm becoming untouchable
I'm a slow dying flower
I'm the frost killing hour
sweet turning sour
& untouchable.

ooh I need
the darkness,
the sweetness,
the sadness,
the weakness,
ooh I need this.
Need a lullabye,
a kiss goodnight,
angel, sweet love of my life

She sits in her corner
Singing herself to sleep
Wrapped in all of the promises
That no one seems to keep
She no longer cries to herself,
No tears left to wash away
Just diaries of empty pages,
Feelings gone astray
But she will sing

'Till everything burns
While everyone screams
Burning their lies
Burning my dreams
All of this hate
And all of this pain
I'll burn it all down
As my anger reigns
'Till everything burns

Ooh, oh

Walking through life unnoticed
Knowing that no one cares
Too consumed in their masquerade
No one sees her there
And still she sings

'Till everything burns
While everyone screams
Burning their lies
Burning my dreams
All of this hate
And all of this pain
Burn it all down
As my anger reigns

I will not make
the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself
Cause my heart so much misery
I will not break
the way you did, you fell so hard
I've learned the hard way
To never let it get that far

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt

Please, please, forgive me
but I won't be home again.
Maybe someday you'll look up
and barely conscious you'll say to no-one:
"isn't something missing?"

You won't cry for my absence, I know,
you forgot me long ago.
Am I that unimportant?
Am I so insignificant?
Isn't something missing?
Isn't someone missing me?

Even though I'm the sacrifice
you won't try for me, not now.
Though I'd die to know you loved me
I'm all alone.

Isn't someone missing me?

Please, please, forgive me,
but I won't be home again.
I know what you do to yourself,
I breathe deep and cry out.
Isn't something missing?

I used to think
I had the answers to everything
But now I know
Life doesn't always
Go my way, yeah...

Feels like I'm caught in the middle
That's when I realize...

I'm not a girl
Not yet a woman
All I need is time
A moment that is mine
While I'm in between

I'm not a girl
There is no need to protect me
Its time that I
Learn to face up to this on my own
I've seen so much more than u know now
So tell me to shut my eyes

I'm not a girl
Not yet a woman
All I need is time
A moment that is mine
While I'm in between

I'm not a girl
But if u look at me closely
You will see it my eyes
This girl will always find
Her way

I'm not a girl

Not Yet a woman

Lady Mary
Lindsay Lohan - Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)

[i]I wait for the postman to bring me a letter
And I wait for the good Lord to make me feel better
And I carry the weight of the world on my shoulders
A family in crisis that only grows older

Why'd you have to go? (x4)

Daughter to father, daughter to father
I am broken but I am hoping
Daughter to father, daughter to father
I am cryin', a part of me's dyin'
And these are, these are
The confessions of a broken heart

And I waer all your old clothes, your polo sweater
I dream of another you
The one who would never (never)
Leave me alone to pick up the pieces
A daddy to hold me, that's all I needed

So why'd you have to go?

Sebastian Giustiniani said about Mary: "This girl never cries". Do you really think he was right or not?

Mary was certainly a terrible queen: she burned over 300 protestants without mercy or regret and she tried also to condemn her sister Elizabeth. But what made her so angry with everyone who could opposite her?

The first person who make us think that made Mary so furious was, doubtless, Anne Boleyn. She chased Mary's beloved mother, queen Catherine of Aragon, and she took away Mary's father from her.

Anne claimed to revolutionize the whole court and she insulted Mary and Catherine publicy wihout being punished by the king. Besides, Anne became queen when she was pregnant and put Mary in the shade because of her desire to have a prince who could become king instead of Mary.

But on 7th september 1533 Anne gave birth to a little girl; Anne continued equally to humiliate Mary making her working as her half-sister's maid.

Mary had a little bit of peace with Anne's death and her father's marriage with Jane Seymour, who treated her well and with love. So did the fourth wife of the king, Anne of Cleves.

Mary to Henry VIII, 2 October 1533

In most humble wise I beseech your grace of your daily blessing. Pleaseth the same to be advertised that this morning my chamberlain came and showed me that he had received a letter from Sir William Paulet, comptroller of your household; the effect whereof was that I should, with all diligence, remove to the Cast of Hertford. Where upon I desired him to see that letter, which he showed me, wherein was written that ‘the Lady Mary, the king’s daughter, should remove to the place aforesaid’- leaving out in the same the name of princess. Which, when I heard, I could not a little marvel, trusting verily that your grace was not privy to the same letter, as concerning the leaving out of the name of princess, forasmuch as I doubt not that your grace doth take me for your lawful daughter, born in true matrimony. Wherefore, if I were to say to the contrary, I should in my conscience run into the displeasure of God, which I hope assuredly that your grace would not that I should do. And in all other things, your grace shall have me, always, as humble and obedient daughter and handmaid as ever was child to the father, which my duty...

Watched part of a Mary Tudor documentary on youtube. Absolutely awful!

Basically, it was all male interviewees who all agreed that Mary was cruel and unjust. And they got some of the most basic facts wrong.

Here's a couple of things they claimed:

1. Elizabeth was Mary's step-sister.
2. Henry VIII had a son with his fourth wife, Jane seymour.
3. Mary was 34 years old when her father died.

First of all, Mary and Elizabeth were half-sisters. Henry VIII had a son with his Third wife, Jane Seymour. And Henry VIII died in January 1548, making Mary just a couple of weeks shy of her 30th birthday.

They basically said that Mary was fanatical about her religion as if it made her a monster. I'm not saying that she had to kill so many people for their beliefs - I honestly think that it was rediculous how people were fighting over how to worship God when the important thing was that they all believed in him - but Elizabeth sent thousands of Catholics to their deaths during her reign, and Henry VIII had some of his closest friends and confidants executed when they didn't give him what he wanted. Yet Mary...
