Default What song best describes you and your BPD?

Is there a song that when you hear it, it reminds you of yourself and your journey with BDP?

Mine would be Play Dead by Bjork. Here are the lyrics:

Darling stop confusing me
with your wishful thinking
Hopeful enbraces
Don't you understand?
I have to go through this
I belong to here where
no-one cares and no-one loves
no light no air to live in
A place called hate
the city of fear

I play dead
it stops the hurting
I play dead
and hurting stops

It's sometimes just like sleeping
curling up inside my private tortures
I nestle into pain
hug suffering
caress every ache

I play dead
it stops the hurting

Hotay, your turn

Burning in the Skies - Linkin Park

I used the deadwood to make the fire rise
The blood of innocence burning in the skies
I filled my cup with the rising of the sea
I poured it out in an ocean of debris

Ooooooooh!

(Chorus)
I'm swimming in the smoke
Of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize
I'm losing what I don't deserve

What I don't deserve

We held our breath when the clouds began to form
But you were lost in the beating of the storm
And in the end we were made to be apart
The seperate chambers of the human heart

Nooooooo!

(Chorus)
I'm swimming in the smoke
Of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize
I'm losing what I don't deserve

It's in the blackened bones
Of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize
I'm losing what I don't deserve

What I don't deserve

(Solo)

(Chorus)
I'm swimming in the smoke
Of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize
I'm losing what I don't deserve

The blame is mine alone
For bridges I have burned
So don't apologize
I'm losing what I don't deserve

What I don't deserve
What I don't deserve
What I don't deserve

I used the deadwood to make the fire rise
The blood of innocence burning in the skies

Default Re: What song best describes you and your BPD?

and

Silence - Sarah McLaughlan

Give me release
witness me
I am outside
give me peace

Heaven holds a sense of wonder
and I wanted to believe
that I'd get caught up
when the rage in me subsides

In this white wave
I am sinking
in this silence
in this white wave
in this silence
I believe

Passion chokes the flower
'til she cries no more
possessing all the beauty
hungry still for more

Heaven holds a sense of wonder...

I can't help this longing
comfort me
I can't hold it all in
if you won't let me

Heaven holds a sense of wonder...

In this white wave
I am sinking
in this silence
in this white wave
in this silence
I believe

I have seen you
in this white wave
you are silent
you are breathing
in this white wave
I am free

My healing song for my BPD is Sinead O'Connor's THIS IS TO MOTHER YOU
It heals my heart like no other song.

Oh I love this song, it's so beautiful!! It's a lot like Deliver Me by Sarah McLachlan, that's a gorgeous song too

Default Re: What song best describes you and your BPD?

this song means a lot to me.


Jealousy - Frankie Miller


It cuts me deep
And it cuts me wide
This gut rock feelin'
I get inside
And I blame you
But it's really me
Can't rid myself
Of jealousy

When I'm away
And you're at home
I don't believe
You're on your own
It's my foolish
Insecurity
Can't rid myself
Of jealousy

Jealousy
As thick as mud
It's in my veins
It's in my blood
Jealousy
It's plain to see
I love you more
Than you love me

It get's me so
I can't sleep at night
I walk the floor
In the pale moonlight
Yes, I blame you
But it's really me
Can't rid myself
Of jealousy

Jealousy
It's thick as mud
It's in my veins
It's in my blood
Jealousy
It's plain to see
I love you more
Than you love me, baby

Jealousy
It's thick as mud
It's in my veins
It's in my blood
Jealousy
It's plain to see
I love you so much
It's killin' me, baby

Jealousy
It's thick as mud
It's in my veins
It's in my blood
Jealously
It's plain to see
I love you more
Than you love me
You'll be the death of me, baby,

Jealousy
It's thick as mud
It's in my veins..

I'm sure my husband can attest to the truth in these lyrics.

Ever-Changing Woman
as done by Merle Haggard

She can sparkle like the moonlight on the river,
At times her words can cut you like a knife,
She's got a way of being tough and tender,
But she'll always be the highlight of my life.

Sometimes she's hotter than the thirty-first of August,
And colder than a February morn,
But Heaven knows I'm always more than willing,
To hold that ever-changing woman in my arms.

There's days she almost loves me down to nothing,
Then turns around and hates my very soul,
So I always wear a T-shirt and a jacket,
Just in case that woman's running hot or cold.

Sometimes she's hotter than the thirty-first of August,
And colder than a February morn,
But Heaven knows I'm always more than willing,
To hold that ever-changing woman in my arms.

I've got that ever-changing woman in my arms.
I love that ever-changing woman in my arms.
I've got that ever-changing woman in my arms.

tegan and sara - dark come soon

dark, you can't come soon enough for me
saved, from one more day of misery
everything i love, get back for me now
everyone i love, i need you now

don't forget a million miles for me
safe, and another day passed by me
everything i love, get back for me now
everyone i love, i need you now

so what, i lied
i lied to me too
(so what?)
so what, i lied
i lied to me too
(come on)

hold out for the ones you know will love you
hide out from the ones you know will love you
you, you too

go, to the edge and barely there
slow, to make my move
i'm almost there
everything i say, i say to me first
everything i do, i do to me first

so what, i lied
i'd lie to me too
(so what?)
so what, i lied
i'd lie to me too

hold out for the ones you know will love you
hide out from the ones you know will love you
you, you too

dark, you can't come soon enough for me

Disturbed - Asylum

Release me

No remnants were ever found of it
Feeling the hot bile
With every fake smile
Though no evidence was ever found
It never went away completely

I try to hide from the unholy sound of it
Another day gone
Another night's dawn
Dark forces pull me underground
And never went away completely

How can I feel this empty?
I will not recover this time
This loneliness is killing me

Will I never know peace of mind again?
I don't believe it
I can't achieve it
I think it all is just another sign
It never went away completely

Terror is coursing in me
Dreading the final moments
Where I have to be
And feel you die

In Asylum (I live a lie)
Don't you know I'm in love with you
And I wasn't ready
For Asylum (Relive a lie)
To let go
Now it's dragging me into your grave
Your Asylum (Forget the lie)
Overcome and the feeling that I won't get to join you in time
For the loneliness is killing me

Death's images are all around again
They're right behind me
They're gonna find me
Judgment for the immoral sin
That has enveloped me completely

I know I'll never know a peaceful night again
Afraid they'll hear me
They don't fear me
Punishment for the immoral crime
That debt was never paid completely

Terror is coursing in me
Dreading the final moments
Where I have to be
And feel you die

In Asylum (I live a lie)
Don't you know I'm in love with you
And I wasn't ready
For Asylum (Relive a lie)
To let go
Now it's dragging me into your grave
Your Asylum (Forget the lie)
Overcome and the feeling that I won't get to join you in time
For the loneliness is killing me

In the end there will be no suffering (more suffering)
In the end we will find out everything (not everything)
In the end you may question your belief (what belief)
In the end you will realize someday
How you were saved
This has gone on too long (too long)
No more demonic Dreams
Destroyer come to light
Because the memory is killing me

In Asylum (I live a lie)
I let go
now it's dragging me into your grave
For Asylum (We live a lie)
Overcome and the feeling that I won't get to join you in time
This world is not fulfilling me

Don't make me live in Asylum
I live alive
Don't want to live in Asylum
I live a lie
Don't make me live in Asylum
I am a lie
