Coming Out Songs?

9 posts in this topic

Just curious if anyone else had or has a song that seemed to really resonate with all the feelings rushing around when you're either coming out or considering it.

Mine was Madonna's Live to tell..... strange maybe, but it just seemed to fit really well for me...

 

Anyone else?

Well i have this song, i would love to share...

There was a time i was feeling very lonely and sad... slowly i started to accept who i am and decided i just wanted to live my life the way i want to and be myself! and not what others wanted me to be... The song of Marc Anthony - Vivir Mi Vida .... The first time i listen to this song i knew this is how i wanted to live my life from now on... the words in this song encouraged me and it filled me up with joy,hope and strength, as i was considering coming out and after... I'm a happier :)

This is a weird song to think about for coming out, but it was all I could think about. When I decided to tell my husband, I kept thinking about the song Losing my Religion by REM. It was not the whole song just the part where he says "That is me in the corner losing my religion". I think it was because my family is so religious and believe being gay is a sin.

I'm not into songs that are sad or reflect sadness as a rule. The only song I relate to is "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" by Green Day,

I associate to this one (the lyrics are so powerful on how it can feel)...

 

 

Each time they take the photograph

I lose a part I can't get back

I want to hide

This is the part where I detach

Each time they write a hateful word

Dragging my soul into the dirt

I wanna die

Never admit it but it hurts

 

I don't wanna talk about it right now

Just hold me while I cry my eyes out

I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet

But I'm in the dark, yeah

I can't be a superhero right now

Even hearts made out of steel can break down

I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet

I'm only human

 

Anything they did to me, said to me

Doesn't mean a thing cuz you're here with me now

Even when the world turns its back on me

There could be a war but I'm not going down

 

One little lie can ruin my day

Words are like weapons, they betray

When I am afraid

One word of kindness, it can save me

 

I don't wanna talk about it right now

Just hold me while I cry my eyes out

I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet

But I'm in the dark, yeah

I can't be a superhero right now

Even hearts made out of steel can break down

I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet

I'm only human

 

Anything they did to me, said to me

Doesn't mean a thing cuz you're here with me now

Even when the world turns its back on me

There could be a war but I'm not going down

 

Being destructive isn't brave

They couldn't say it to my face

One day I won't care

But for the moment I'm not there

I'll just close my eyes and let you catch me now

 

I don't wanna talk about it right now

I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet

But I'm in the dark, yeah

I can't be a superhero right now

I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet

I'm only human

I have waited

Dined on ashes

Swung from chandeliers and climbed Everest

And none of it's got me close to this

 

I've waited all my life

If not now, when will I?

 

We've been good

Even a blast, but

Don't you feel like something's missing here?

Don't you dare

 

I've waited all my life

If not now, when will I?

Stand up and face the bright light

Don't hide your eyes

It's time

 

No umbrellas

No sunglasses

Hailing Hallelujah everyday

 

I've waited all my life

If not now, when will I?

Stand up and face the bright light

Don't hide your eyes

It's time

 

If not now, when? Incubus

Basically, a women in love, gazing in a lovers eyes. Wanting to go down on her (dodging alleycats and whiskers) a nice hairy puss. Life goes by so much slowly when they're together and can't wait for the time when they are officially together and not staying the odd night, an I want to be with you forever

 

 

When you're quiet, but your eyes

Are saying everything I need to know

I want to burrow like a sparrow

Dodging alley cats and whiskers

Why do we talk in whispers?

Is it painful hearing voices ring

So early in the morning?

I've been waiting for the day

When I can throw away these numbers

That line my dresser drawers and cupboards

Start me over

Life seems so much slower

With your toothbrush by the mirror

Can I make it any clearer?

And I just might say it tonight

I just might say it tonight

And I just might tell you tonight

That I love you

And you should stay all my life
