Eminem - Like toy soldiers
Step by step, heart to heart, left right left We all fall down...
[Chorus] Step by step, heart to heart, left right left We all fall down like toy soldiers Bit by bit, torn apart, we never win But the battle wages on for toy soldiers
[Verse 1] I'm supposed to be the soldier who never blows his composure Even though I hold the weight of the whole world on my shoulders I am never supposed to show it, my crew ain't supposed to know it Even if it means goin' toe to toe with a Benzino it don't matter I'd never drag them in battles that I can't handle unless I absolutely have to I'm supposed to set an example I need to be the leader, my crew looks for me to guide 'em If some shit ever just pop off, I'm supposed to be beside 'em Now the Ja shit i tried to squash it, it was too late to stop it There's a certain line you just don't cross and he crossed it I heard him say Hailie's name on a song and I just lost it It was crazy, this shit way beyond some Jay-z and Nas shit And even though the battle was won, I feel like we lost it I spent too much energy on it, honestly I'm exhausted And I'm so caught in it I almost feel I'm the one who caused it This ain't what I'm in hip-hop for, it's not why I got in it That was never my object for someone to get killed Why would I wanna destroy something I helped build It wasn't my intentions, my intentions was good I went through my whole career without ever mentionin' ... Now it's just out of respect for not runnin' my mouth And talkin' about something that I knew nothing about Plus Dre told me stay out, this just wasn't my beef So I did, I just fell back, watched and gritted my teeth While he's all over t.v. down talkin' a man who literally saved my life Like fuck it i understand this is business And this shit just isn't none of my business But still knowin' this shit could pop off at any minute cuz
[Verse 2] There used to be a time when you could just say a rhyme And wouldn't have to worry about one of your people dyin' But now it's elevated cuz once you put someone's kids in it The shit gets escalated, it ain't just words no more is it? It's a different ball game, callin' names and you ain't just rappin' We actually tried to stop the 50 and Ja beef from happenin' Me and Dre had sat with him, kicked it and had a chat with him And asked him not to start it he wasn't gonna go after him Until Ja started yappin' in magazines how he stabbed him Fuck it 50 smash 'em, mash 'em and let him have it Meanwhile my attention is pullin' in other directions Some receptionist at The Source who answers phones at his desk Has an erection for me and thinks that I'll be his ressurection Tries to blow the dust off his mic and make a new record But now he's fucked the game up cuz one of the ways I came up Was through that publication the same one that made me famous Now the owner of it has got a grudge against me for nothin' Well fuck it, that motherfucker can get it too, fuck him then But I'm so busy being pissed off I don't stop to think That we just inherited 50's beef with Murder Inc. And he's inherited mine which is fine ain't like either of us mind We still have soldiers that's on the front line That's willing to die for us as soon as we give the orders Never to extort us, strictly to show they support us We'll maybe shout 'em out in a rap or up in a chorus To show them we love 'em back and let 'em know how important it is To have Runion Avenue Soldiers up in our corners Their loyalty to us is worth more than any award is But I ain't tryna have none of my people hurt and murdered It ain't worth it I can't think of a perfecter way to word it Then to just say that I love ya'll too much to see the virdict I'll walk away from it all before I let it go any further But don't get it twisted, it's not a plea that I'm coppin' I'm just willin' to be the bigger man If ya'll can quit poppin' off at your jaws well then I can, Cuz frankly I'm sick of talkin' I'm not gonna let someone elses coffin rest on my conscience cuz
Casper - Auf und davon Und heute bin ich aufgewacht, Augen auf gemacht, Sonnenstraheln im Gesicht, halte die Welt an und bin Auf und davon
kenn ich aus sarah dessens buch "just listen". es ist.. einfach so wunderschön... am meisten ma ich die textzeile "little drops of rain, whisper of the pain, tears of loves lost in the days gone by"... hat einen sehr persönlichen grund......
Then of thy beauty do I question make, That thou among the wastes of time must go, Since sweets and beauties do themselves forsake And die as fast as they see others grow;
silbermond krieger des lichts blazin squad lieder purlieder (einer der absolut besten aller zeiten) wind of change time of my life way back into love bsb lieder amy mc donald das 1. starlight express lieder take my breath away
This is war - Thirty seconds to mars.... ich liebe dieses lied Ertrinken - Die Toten hosen ... so unendlich traurig und doch so schön Break your heart - Taio Cruz... einfach nur ein Ohrwurm Omnis mundi Creatura - Helium Vola... die Stimme ist so abartig Runaway - Bon Jovi.... keine Ahnung, aber das Lied hat was
Echt ... so einen Thread gibt's - und keiner findet Franz Schubert würdig, darin aufzutauchen? Wie schade ... Dann nenne ich mal das "Ständchen" als eines für viele.
Oder, was auch zu den schönsten Liedern gehört, die es gibt: Der Zyklus Les nuits d'été von Hector Berlioz. Mein liebstes daraus als Hörprobe ... (Es hat einen sehr poetischen Text. Eine Rose erwartet, bei einem festlichen Anlaß eine wunderschöne Frau schmücken zu dürfen ...)
@ Lú: Bei Louis Armstrong stimme ich dir voll und ganz zu. Es ist ein tolles Lied
Bei mir wären es: + Guns 'n' Roses - November Rain + Aerosmith - Cryin' & Crazy + Billy Joel - Piano Man + Michael Jackson - zu viele um es aufzuzählen, aber u.a. Heal the world, Thriller, Black or White + Whitney Houston - I wanna dance with somebody + 2PAC - Changes + Elvis Presley - Always on my mind, Jailhouse Rock und noch viele mehr von ihm und sicher noch einige mehr...
(Falls sich jemand wundert: nein, keine asiatischen Künstler, weil ich weiter zurück gedacht hab als die letzten 5-10 Jahre und so lange gibt es noch keine der Bands die ich höre )
