I'd like to add some Country songs which could have hints to SI.
What about "It doesn't matter" by Alison Krauss and "Save myself" by LeAnn Rimes?
It doesn't matter what I want
It doesn't matter what I need
It doesn't matter if I cry
Don't matter if I bleed
I want to shed my skin if I feel the urge to fly
I will fall on my face to bruised and broken
I want to bleed when I'm put to the test
I want to dig down deep and find out who I am
Save myself I don't want to save myself
I'm not sure if it is mentioned before but what about "A few small bruises" by Maria Mena?
I can't control my destiny.
I trust my soul. My only goal is just to be. (Rent)
I'm selfish, inpatient and a little insecure.
I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle but if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. (Marilyn Monroe)
Me too! I was forced to listen to MSP and Ben Folds (my two current favourite bands) as a child. Every family holiday, the entire journey we had to listen to MSP hehe. Sorry, I know you posted that like a month ago but I've not been on in so0o0 long.
Whoops sorry I forgot to check back here haha.
Seriously methinks we're the same person Every single family holiday we'd listen to manics albums all the way in the car, and me and my sister would try to sing along, even to THB which would have made me 4/5 years old singing about anorexia, the holocaust, SI-ing, etc. lol.
So so strange...You're not me are you?

Wow.....I posted a whole crapload of songs under the ED song thread because I generally group my ED and SI together b/c they stem from the same things.....but now I have nothing to post under the SI thread.....=D.....I'll post it again though, because quite a few of the songs haven't been mentioned.....but.....LISTEN TO 'THE WAY SHE FEELS!!!!!'.....GREATEST SONG.....
I don't think any of these were up there--so check them out!!!!!

I am not afraid to keep on living-I am not afraid to walk this world alone..Biting keeps your words at bay,tending to the sores that stay-happiness is just a gash away.When i open a familiar scar,pain goes shooting like a star-comfort hasn't failed to follow so far.And pens and penknives take the blame,crane my neck and scratch my name.-but the ugly marks are worth the momentary gain.When i drive a sharpened object in,choirs of angels seem to sing hymns of hate in memorandum
This isn't about SI, but my MSN screenname uses lyrics from a bit that goes
"When they cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut you up, cut, cut, cut, cut, they remember, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut you up, cut you all up"
[AFI-The Killing Lights]
It stops me from self-harming-- because I can connect with it.
One day, I will look in the mirror, and I will be there. One day.
One thing ... when SH is a part of your life it tends to take over to the point that you interpret things that aren't actually do to with SH or anything like it into something of which you can idenify with.
We all do it over everything. When we're (humans) inlove all of a sudden every song becomes a love song, when we're upset every song becomes a sad song, when we're grieving every song becomes a song about loses. (to an extent) Just an observation.
