Your character as song lyrics

Recommended Posts

As I was playing the game tonight and listening to Pandora a song came on and the lyrics seemed to hit home for my character and where he is at in his roleplay. That got me wondering if anyone else had song lyrics that match up with their character's current mood/story/etc.


Here is mine to start:



"Would you be the savior of the broken,

The beaten and the damned?"

He said "Will you defeat them,

Your demons, and all the non-believers,

The plans that they have made?"


"I'm just a man, I'm not a hero"


-"Welcome To The Black Parade" My Chemical Romance

A fun thread concept! 



Sigurd has a lot of different facets of his personality but the following encapsulates much of his current state of mind:




"Out of the dark, into the light,

In the dawn of terrestrial birth.

New-born yet older than time,

Conceived in the depths of the earth.


Though strange lay the waters from which they emerged,

They glanced upon the world as their own.

Yet deep in their hearts they knew all the time

That this was not really their home.


So they rode on.

Yes, they rode on.


On hidden roads, through barren wastelands,

Untrodden by both man and beast.

From the distance their fire was gleaming

Like a lamp amidst dark eternity.


A bitter moon hovered above them.

The night lit sole by its glow.

From high in a sky of ominous dye

In which dark clouds drifted slow.


So they rode on.

Yes, they rode on.


They rode with shut eyes as the sun rose.

Regardless of earth's vanity.

But with wide open eyes, they paced the night

And pondered its mysteries.


They sat at the crossroads with high and with low,

Yet neither could alter their course.

Riches were offered unto them,

Yet indifferent and without remorse


They rode on.

Yes, they rode on.


And each lonely vagrant that crossed their path,

Felt how his heart grew cold.

Yet be marvelled at their scarred faces,

So beautiful, distant and old.


Some say they've heard them singing

In strange tongues of melancholy;

Of the gods, of the night, and of glory.

Of the dead, and their memory.


So they rode on.

Yes, they rode on.


Say goodbye to the light.

Come twilight, come dark night.

Say goodbye to the light,

Come twilight, come dark night.


Could you have rode there with them?

Would you have joined their march?

Or would you have them ride on?

Away into the dark?


Would you have been able to let go?

Of illusions of right and of wrong?

And if they came to die;

Would you have rode on?"

"Strange Little Girl"


One day you see a strange little girl look at you

One day you see a strange little girl feeling blue


She'd run to the town one day

Leaving home and the country fair

Just beware

When you're there

Strange little girl


She didn't know how to live in a town that was rough

It didn't take long before she knew she'd had enough

Walking home in her wrapped up world

She survived but she's feeling old

And she found all things cold


Strange little girl

Where are you going?

Strange little girl

Where are you going?

Do you know where you could be going?


Walking home in her wrapped up world

She survived but she's feeling old

'Cause she found all things cold


Strange little girl

Where are you going?

Strange little girl

Where are you going?

Do you know where you could be going?


Strange little girl

Where are you going?

Strange little girl

Where are you going?

Do you know where you could be going?

This was actually one of the first things I ever did for Nathan, and I mentioned it elsewhere, buuuuuuuuuuut...




Leaves are falling all around.

It's time I was on my way.

Thanks to you, I'm much obliged for such a pleasant stay.

But now it's time for me to go.

The autumn moon lights my way.

For now I smell the rain, and with it pain, and it's headed my way.

Sometimes I grow so tired, but I know I've got one thing I got to do...



Ramble On,

And now's the time, the time is now, to sing my song.

I'm goin' 'round the world, I got to find my girl, on my way.

I've been this way ten years to the day,

Ramble On,

Gotta find the queen of all my dreams.


Got no time to for spreadin' roots,

The time has come to be gone.

And to' our health we drank a thousand times,

it's time to Ramble On.



[Repeat Chorus:]


Mine's a tale that can't be told, my freedom I hold dear.

How years ago in days of old, when magic filled the air.

T'was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair.

But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her, her, her....



[Repeat Chorus:]


Gonna ramble on, sing my song.

Gotta keep-a-searchin' for my baby...

Gonna work my way, round the world.

I can't stop this feelin' in my heart

Gotta keep searchin' for my baby.

I can't find my bluebird!

Weary Whaling Grounds


If I had the wings of a gull, me boys,

I would spread 'em and fly home.

I'd leave old Greenland's icy grounds

For of right whales there is none.


And the weather's rough and the winds do blow

And there's little comfort here.

I'd sooner be snug in a Deptford pub,

A-drinkin' of strong beer.


Oh, a man must be mad or want money bad

To venture catchin' whales.

For we may be drowned when the fish turns around

Or our head be smashed by his tail.


Though the work seems grand to the young green hand,

And his heart is high when he goes,

In a very short burst he'd as soon hear a curse

As the cry of: “There she blows!”


“All hands on deck now, for God's sake,

Move briskly if you can.”

And he stumbles on deck, so dizzy and sick;

For his life he don't give a damn.


And high overhead the great flukes spread,

And the mate gives the whale the iron,

And soon the blood in a purple flood

From the spout-hole comes a-flying!


Well, these trials we bear for night four year,

Till the flying jib points for home.

We're supposed for our toil to get a bonus of the oil,

And an equal share of the bone.


But we go to the agent to settle for the trip,

And we've find we've cause to repent.

For we've slaved away four years of our life

And earned about three pound ten.

For those League of Legends fans like myself, I think you'll enjoy this song too.

But this is the theme that I like to relate Garrett too.


The story behind the song is a theory - "Tormented by a haunting voice emanating from the Shuriman amulet on his hand, Ezreal must find a way to overcome the madness that tears at his very mind or face doom as he is consumed by it. "I think it fits Garrett due to the fact of his mental state, trying to fight his paranoia and the more eviler intentions/darkside that he sometimes has trying to find a way to harness them to do better and even for the good he does and him distancing himself from people the line. "I'm no hero, stay away" fits perfectly along with most of the lyrics but I'll try to stop gushing over this but it all fits so well! As for the lyrics, here they are and enjoy if you take a listen!


I feel the fire in my veins

The magic force it calls to me

Though what a thrill it is

The gift I'm given causes my dismay

And despite what you say

I'm no hero stay away

Circumstantial matters

Urge at my attentions every day


I get the pulse within the brain


It pulls away as I take aim


I feel too much, too often

If I can't turn this off then

I'll find a way to harness you

Bind you to me like you want to

This upgrade doesn't scare me

I'll feel quite LEGENDARY!

For what is left's degrading over time

This life to save is mine


It's killing me from deep within


All doubt is gone, upgrade begins...





I'll make my home inside

Within your weakened flesh

Deep in your broken mind

Swallow your spirit whole

My husk to devastate

You move unto my whim

Time now to meet your fate


Such power that this boy can wield

What force do you possess

Feed me in perpetuity

Until we both are dead


I will awaken from this nightmare

This chance is all I'll have, this time


I will awaken from this nightmare

This chance is all I'll have, this time


I will never give up what's mine!

We saw you from the ocean's side, from under the boat

We saw you making knots, we saw you get the rope

The boy's appearing on the deck and making it lurch

And the bubble of your interest's ready to burst


He whistles and he runs....


We saw you in distraction, a sleeping, slow despair

Rehearsing interaction, he wasn't even there

A creature is a creature though you wish you were the wind

And the boat will not stop moving if you tie him up until the end


He whistles and he runs, so hold him fast

Breathe the burn, you want to let it last

He might succumb to what you haven't seen

He has a keen eye for what you used to be


When the cadaverous mob saves its doors

For the dead men, you cannot leave

When the cadaverous mob saves its doors

For the dead men, you cannot leave

When the cadaverous mob saves its doors

For the dead men, you cannot leave

Underneath the blue sky, the wind blows toward the future,

as if embracing the rays of the sun.


Merely wandering along,

I leave behind only a trail of footsteps.


As long as there's a breeze brushing my cheek & grass to lie in

I don't need anything else, and I'll smile with satisfaction.


Sleeping, gazing at

the never-ending future...


La la la...


I can hear the sound of waves, touching my heart,

selfishly aimless, like drops of rain.


The setting sun quietly reassures itself of everything,

then sinks into the distant sea, as if giving it a kiss.


Wandering towards

the dream of a never-ending future.


La la la...

I've been trying hard to find a good song for Nef. Nothing seemed to fit. First was Immortals by Fall Out Boy


They say we are what we are

But we don't have to be.

I'm bad behavior but I do it in the best way.

I'll be the watcher (watcher) of the eternal flame.

I'll be the guard dog of all your fever dreams.


 However the rest of the song just doesn't fit well.


Found Happy by Pharrell Williams. It fits.. but it's not ALL of Nef. American Author's Best Day Of My Life is what Nef wakes up to every day, but still it just didn't have everything in there.


Then.. finally... 




Yea.. that's perfect! She's happy, she drinks, she's loud, and does her own thing.


Slam slam, oh hot d**n

What part of party don't you understand,

Wish you'd just freak out (freak out already)

Can't stop, comin' in hot,

I should be locked up right on the spot

It's so on right now (so f***in' on right now)


Party crasher,

Panty snatcher,

Call me up if you want a gangsta

Don't be fancy, just get dancy

Why so serious?


So raise your glass if you are wrong,

In all the right ways,

All my underdogs,

We will never be never be, anything but loud

"Maybe gritty dirty little freaks"

Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass,

Just come on and come on and raise your glass

i'm fall out boy trash and i am sorry

I had Rihxo sing part of this, because it fit at the time.


She's in a long black coat tonight, waitin' for me in the downpour outside

She's singing 'baby, come home' in a melody of tears, while the rhythm of the rain keeps time

I remember 'baby, come home' (4x)

Did you ever love her? Do you know?

Or did you never want to be alone?

And she was singin' 'baby, come home' (I remember) 'baby, come home'


Also applicable, now:



There a room in a hotel in New York City, that shares our fate and deserves our pity

I don't want to remember it all; the promises I made, if you just hold on

Hold on (4x)


I just need enough of you to dull the pain; just to get me through the night, 'til we're twins again

'till we're stripped down to our skeletons again

'till we're saints just swimming in our sins again


And there's a jet black crow, droning on and on and on

Up above our heads, droning on and on and on

Keep making trouble 'til you find what you love

I need a new partner in crime, and you shrug

Like many characters, Odette has numerous sides to her character and development. Whilst I normally refer to Depache Mode's "Freestate" as the song that is most in line with the expression of her ideals, Gavin Dunne's "Wake the White Wolf" currently sums up past and present events perfectly.




Also, someone sent this to me as a recommendation. It's extremely cheesy, but it just fits our everyday Odette oh-so-well. :lol:



"I'm Me" by Olivia Olsen.


I can do it, I can run, I can hunt you down.

You can try, but you can't stop me 'cause I'm gaining ground.

I'm light on my feet and I'm quick to the punch.

I had a heavy breakfast, but a real light lunch.

I'm a raging bonfire, a cherry bomb, I'm me.


I'm rough-and-tumble, I'm the one to beat,

I'm a fresh coat of blacktop burnin' at your feet.

I've got a poisonous sting, when I rain I pour.

I'm the best of the best, I'm the soup du jour.


I'm smooth as glass, and sharp as a tack, I'm me.

I'm the last and best stick of gum in the pack, I'm me.


I'm a strong woman, fast-talking, big-bad-dog walking,

High falutin', drum-beatin', foot stompin', corn-poppin',

Speeding locomotive that just won't stop!

I'm a hot apple pie with a cherry on top!


I'm a crowd pleasin', head spinnin',

Winnin' in the ninth inning,

Whip-lashing, record-smashin',

Black-tie party crashing!


Cyclone of fun, I'm an army of one!

I'm strawberry sprinkles on a hot cross bun!


I've got you beat by a nose at the finish line

I'm a semi truck trailer with a scent of pine

I'm the cold hard walls of a prison cell

I'm a winter trip to the Wisconsin Dells

I'm a blood-red rose with a string of thorns, I'm me!

I'm a heart-shaped locket on a cold steel chain, I'm me!

I'm a big haymaker in a title fight.

I'm a cute black kitten with a nasty bite.

I'm an action double-feature on a Friday night!


I'm me! (x5)

Father, father, let me love you

Saw you wandering in my dream last night singing

Wonder, wonder what you might do

You can't simply hide our dream in the blue


Don't try to fight; don't let me go

You've gone too far from what I know

I lost my heart in the dark with you

Father, father, why you let me go

Father, please don't let me go


Brother, brother, let me love you

Whisper all your deepest fears

You can trust me

And when it's over we can begin

Finally to make amends

Try to save us


Let me love you

(Bure bure bure bure) 

(Bure bure bure bure) 

(Bure bure bure bure)


"Warped, warped, warped, warped" 

"Warped, warped, warped, warped" 

"Warped, warped, warped, warped" 

"Warped, warped, warped, warped"

I was reading the phamplet late at night 

I had nothing to do so I was just reading it absent-mindedly 

Flipping through pages, successful people were getting recognition 

"That Au Ra isn't warped at all... how wonderful"*


Kyoumi nee-ya sou omotte keshita-yo 

Mou neru-ze ashita-kara mata baito-da


"How boring," I thought and closed the book

Better go to sleep, I have work from tomorrow on


Netsuke zu ni Ore-ha manga-wo mekutta 

Gurabia-no aidoru hohoende ita 

(Asuriito watashi taipu-nano-yo. 

Kare rattara jiku-ga burete nai suteki)


Unable to go to sleep, I flipped through some tomes 

A gladiator was smiling at me** 

"That athlete is just my type. 

Those sorts aren't warped at all... how wonderful"


Wakatta-ze mukuware-nu sono wake 

Hito toshite Ore, jiku-ga bureten da


I get it, the reason I'm not rewarded 

Is because, as a Au ra, I'm quite warped


Sore naraba inaore! Mou 

Bure bure bure bure bure makutte 

Furueteru-no wakannee youni shiteyare! 

Zureru-ze! Mou bure bure ningen

(Atashi-ga iru-yo, kidzuite)


So sit up properly! Already, 

I'm warping, warping, warping away 

Make it so I can't tell why I'm trembling! 

Slipping away! I'm already a warped Au ra

But if you are here, I can change? 

"Just realize that I am here"


Jiku-no bure-wo hodou-to kangaero 

Kono bure-ga sekai-wo-mo kaeru darou 

Hito-mo Ore-ni kidzuka zaru-wo enai 

Ima-ha tada furuete mietatte


Think of the warping as a surge 

Won't this warping change the world as well? 

I feel people can't help but notice me 

Even if now they can only see me trembling


Mou wakatta-ze mukuware-nu sono wake 

Hito toshite jiku-ga bureteiru-no-sa


Alright, I get it, the reason I'm not rewarded 

Is because, as a Au ra, I'm quite warped


Aa, wakatta-ze furueteru sono wake 

Dare-kara-mo sasaerarete nai-kara-sa


Ah, I get it, the reason I'm trembling 

Is because I don't have anyone to support me


Inaorun-da! Bokura-ha mou 

Bure bure bure bure bure makutte 

Furueteru-no wakannee youni shiteyare! 

Zureru-ze! Mou bure bure ningen demo kitto

I'm sitting up! Already, 

We're warping, warping, warping away 

Make it so I can't tell why I'm trembling! 

Slipping away! I'm already a warped Au ra

I think I finally found something fitting my dear Demadara.




Axes flash, broadsword swing,

Shining armour's piercing ring

Horses run with polished shield,

Fight Those Bastards till They Yield

Midnight mare and blood red roan,

Fight to Keep this Land Your Own

Sound the horn and call the cry,

How Many of Them Can We Make Die!


Follow orders as you're told,

Make Their Yellow Blood Run Cold

Fight until you die or drop,

A Force Like Ours is Hard to Stop

Close your mind to stress and pain,

Fight till You're No Longer Sane

Let not one damn cur pass by,

How Many of Them Can We Make Die!


Guard your women and children well,

Send These Bastards Back to Hell

We'll teach them the ways of war,

They Won't Come Here Any More

Use your shield and use your head,

Fight till Every One is Dead

Raise the flag up to the sky,

How Many of Them Can We Make Die!


Dawn has broke, the time has come,

Move Your Feet to a Marching Drum

We'll win the war and pay the toll,

We'll Fight as One in Heart and Soul

Midnight mare and blood red roan,

Fight to Keep this Land Your Own

Sound the horn and call the cry,

How Many of Them Can We Make Die!
