The Top TenXW

1Somewhere Only We Know - Keane, 2nd Verse

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin - CastlevaniaFanboy128

2Welcome to The Black Parade - My Chemical Romance, 4th Verse

Do or die
You'll never make me
Because the world, will never take my heart
You can try, you'll never break me
You want it all, you wanna play this part
I won't explain or say I'm sorry
I'm unashamed, I'm gonna show my scar
Give a cheer, for all the broken
Listen here, because it's only you
I'm just a man, I'm not a hero
I'm just a boy, who's meant to sing this song
I'm just a man, I'm not a hero
I -- don't -- care - CastlevaniaFanboy128

3Blackbird - Alter Bridge, 3rd Verse

Ascend, may you find no resistance
Know that you made such a difference
And all you leave behind
Will live til the end

The cycle of suffering goes on
But the memories of you stay strong
Some day I too will fly
And find you again - CastlevaniaFanboy128

4Creep - Radiohead, 2nd Verse

I don't care if it hurts
I wanna have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul

I want you to notice
When I'm not around
You're so ' special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing' here?
I don't belong here, oh, oh

I considered Paranoid Android, but I found this to be so great! Basically one of the most depressing songs of all time! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

5Walk - Foo Fighters, Final Verse

You keep alive a moment at a time
But still inside a whisper to a riot
To sacrifice but knowing to survive
The first to climb another state of mind
I'm on my knees, I'm praying for a sign
Forever, whenever
I never wanna die
I never wanna die
I never wanna die
I'm on my knees
I never wanna die
I'm dancing on my grave
I'm running through the fight
Forever, whenever
I never wanna die
I never wanna leave
I never say goodbye
Forever, whenever
Forever, whenever

I'm learning to walk again
I believe I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?
I'm learning to talk again
Can't you see I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?

I'm learning to walk again
I believe I've waited long enough
I'm learning to talk again
Can't you see I've waited long enough - CastlevaniaFanboy128

6Little Black Submarines - The Black Keys, 1st Verse

Little black submarines
Operator please
Put me back on the line
Told my girl I'd be back
Operator please
This is wreckin' my mind

Oh can it be
The voices calling me
They get lost
And out of time
I should've seen it glow
But everybody knows
That a broken heart is blind
That a broken heart is blind

Definitely one of my all-time favorite openings in every song I've ever heard! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

7Heart Shaped Box - Nirvana, 2nd Verse

Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet
Cut myself on Angel Hair and babys breath
Broken hymen of your highness I'm left black
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back

Hey!
Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
...Your advice - CastlevaniaFanboy128

8Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes, 2nd Verse

Don't wanna hear about it
Every single one's got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of Hell

And if I catch you coming back my way
I'm gonna sell it to you
And that ain't what you want to hear
But that's what I'll do

And a feeling coming from my bones says find a home - CastlevaniaFanboy128

The Contenders

11Lithium - Nirvana, 5th Verse

I like it, I'm not gonna crack!
I miss you, I'm not gonna crack!
I love you, I'm not gonna crack!
I killed you, I'm not gonna crack!

I like it, I'm not gonna crack!
I miss you, I'm not gonna crack!
I love you, I'm not gonna crack!
I killed you, I'm not gonna, crack... - MontyPython

12Savior - Rise Against, Final Verse

One thousand miles away
There's nothing left to say
But so much left that I don't know
We never had a choice
This world is too much noise
It takes me under
It takes me under once again
I don't hate you
I don't hate you, no

So tell me now
If this ain't love then how do we get out?
'Cause I don't know
That's when she said I don't hate you boy
I just want to save you while there's still something left to save (whoa, whoa)
That's when I told her I love you girl
But I'm not the answer for the questions that you still have (whoa, whoa)
I don't hate you
I don't hate you (whoa, whoa)
I don't hate you
I don't hate you, no (whoa, whoa) - CastlevaniaFanboy128
