It's weird how the meanings of words sometimes get arbitrarily changed.
Gay originally meant "happy, cheerful" & the like.
A #1 U.S. pop hit from 1972, with a suicidal theme,
written/performed by an Irishman who didn't wear any dresses or make-up-- (go to :55)

Then, of course, there's "ballad", which originally was used to mean a story or narrative,
which means that this would qualify--

Meet me in outer space
I will hold you close
If you're afraid of heights
I need you to see this place
It might be the only way
That I can show you HOW

Must have a code that you can live by
And so become yourself
Because the past is just a good bye."

There was a group called Wood and they had a CD caled "Wood, From Sanford Hill" and one of the songs had the most romantic line I have ever heard. The song is titled "Our Time Has Come: "I feel luckier than God cause he has to wait for you."

Well I told you once and I told you twice
You never listen to my advice
You don't try very hard to please me
With what you know it should be easy

RE "People are saying it is the next rock anthem. I'm Tired"

What was the last rock anthem?

"So go tell Britney and go tell Gwen
She's not tryin' to go against them
'Cause she's too scared and she can't pretend
To understand where it begins or ends
Or what it means to be dead
It's just a sound going through your head
Let them go on"

Great Thread... Lots of lyrical goodies to be gleaned from here...

I have lots from all sorts of genres.

We're all corrupted, Like dirty small towns.
-Lay 'em Down by Needtobreathe

You couldn't hate enough to love. Is that supposed to be enough?
-Snuff by Slipknot

Not that I didn't care, It's that I didn't know.
It's not what I didn't feel, It's what I didn't show...
-Misery by Maroon 5
If you want to be someone else, change your mind.
-Change your Mind by Sister Hazel
Also The freshmen by The Verve is an amazing song. It seems to grow with meaning in every stage of my life.
And props to the poster of Cake lyrics. I just love me some Cake!
It has never ceased to amaze me how such few words can adequately describe the wieght of such heavy burdens.

"He's been like a father to me
He's the only DJ you can hear after three
I'm an all night musician in a rock 'n' roll band
And why he don't like me, I can't understand

He's a drug store truck drivin' man
He's a head of the Ku Klux Klan
When summer rolls around
He'll be lucky if he's not in town"

"DRUG STORE TRUCK DRIVIN' MAN" McGuinn/Parsons/The Byrds
