    not close enough for you
    to hear a breath or steal a sigh
    but just close enough for me
    to take a step and pass you by

    Tough one. Jonas has written so many unforgettable lyrics that it's hard to pick just one, but this is one of my faves

    in your eyes you're alive
    but in my eyes you're a lie
    ...in my eyes you're THE lie

    Hmmm...to me its really hard to say what my favorite Lyrics are...it still depends on my situation, my feelings. But theres one song that always fits on my way of sight, my impressions of life:

    "Somehow I never leave this Deadhouse, somehow I dont mind being gone..."

    The time when I was most close to Katatonia was on the release of Tonights Decision...it was also a time, when I was losing my girfriend after a long tragedy, but thats another story...

    "If you would tell me that I was someone, for a second i would think...just like I would try to consider how it feels to know"

    "You came back to a place without sun, and you dont seem to know what you've done to me. Now I see...darkness is what you left in me."

    Also there is a song that always comes up in my mind when i dont know how to live on...called "Black Session".

    Hmmm...guess i could continue with this for a lot of pages...that should be enough for now /forum/images/smilies/smile.gif

    Hey Portisfreak you‘ve stolen my part:
    "If you would tell me that I was someone, for a second I would think...just like I would try to consider how it feels to know"

    It’s not easy at all, but I’ve decided to add the following:
    ‘Burn down my house and make sth happen
    Stab me in the heart and make a thing stop’ – as an essential part of ‘Chrome’ lyric

    ‘It’s black session, an invitation of sorts’

    From ‘the Future of Speech’ I would rather choose the next para:
    ‘I have no lies or truth in what I say – there’s no meaning
    The words are numb and I’m afraid – there’s no meaning’

    And excuse me, but I cannot stop myself:
    ‘Be still for a moment everything depends upon you, if you die, I will die to’ :[

    four numbers staring back at me
    displaying the mediocrity of my presence
    i´m wasting my day watching them change


    Somehow better without this
    Headlights fuck the city


    used to care about weather used to plan the days that came
    used to try and watch you used to know my name
    someone said remember but i can't remember anything at all
    anything at all

    Many of the ones you´ve already typed, plus:

    "In this dead hour here with you seconds are worthless"

    Headlights fuck the city.

    Tell them I love them, I miss them.

    This is different.

    I'm the end of what will be.

    This one always struck me as being incredibly sadistic: "There are children on the freeway, I have my ways playing with death..."

    This whole song...

    she's got black hair
    and she has got a black dress
    she's pretending
    that her life is a mess


    And especially [this part]:

    I live 'cause I need more light
    I hope I can change today
    she would never think of changing
    too much fucking emo, it's false (I know)



    And Funeral Wedding, because it just fucking rules.

    who could call my name without regretting
    who could promise to never destroy me
    tonight my head is full of wishes
    and everything is full of her

    Tonight's music...

    Pretty much all of Last Fair Deal... can't pick any lyric from there.
    On Viva:
    Truth I have seen it come
    Seen the ghost of the sun
    Can't have it all undone
    In time we all call out for relief
    See two lovers meet
    Pass you on the street - Ghost Of The Sun

    My dreams,Dreams of violence...See them coming true - Criminals

    Defy only if you have a way to resist the lies
    Decline only if you have the intention of taking this advice
    Apply only if you're not afraid to see your spirit die
    Retreat only if you dare not hear yourself say goodbye - Will I Arrive

    @yv:
    You spoke out of my heart when selecting "the future of speech" lyrics. Its kind of a fear we all have when we think about humanity and our world, and I'm frightend to become "numb minded" like so many people, or even our civilizations are on this world....we lose our "meaning"...

    Seems we have the same fears my friend... The world is filling up with empty and numb creatures-all went off the rails. We try not to flow with the tide...

    :) It's nice to hear I spoke out of your heart-even if it was Jonas who actually did... He's just incredible-always hits the nail on the head... Sweet suffering :)
