I don't know the name of this song, it's probably in the first stanza but I have to say the whole stanza to perfectly describe what I am feeling today:

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way!


How about you?

Linkin Park

"In The End"

(It starts with)
One thing, I don’t know why
It doesn’t even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time
All I know
time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
It’s so unreal
Didn’t look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on but didn’t even know
Wasted it all just to
Watch you go
I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
One thing, I don’t know why
It doesn’t even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To remind myself how
I tried so hard
In spite of the way you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
I’m surprised it got so (far)
Things aren’t the way they were before
You wouldn’t even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me
In the end
You kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There’s only one thing you should know
I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There’s only one thing you should know
I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter

Your song is "I Can See Clearly Now" by Johnny Nash from the '70's.

@pleaseletmebe - both the lyrics to "In The End" and "Numb" by Linkin Park sound like the songwriter knows more than a little about being an SO to an OCPDr. (Probably a lot more songs do, too, but I'm not familiar with their whole body o' work.)

For myself, I'll pick Alan Parsons Projects' "Standing on Higher Ground" from the Gaudi album. Some of the lyrics are not so great, but these fit me, today, and the music itself is very upbeat:

I see the world
And I'm looking from a high place
Way above it all
Standing on higher ground

I breathe the air
While they're running in a rat race
Way above it all
Standing on higher ground

:D :D :D

Monty Python's "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life" from Life of Brian.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlBiLNN1NhQ

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of shit
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

And always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the right side of life...
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the bright side of life...
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Always look on the bright side of life...
(I mean - what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing. What have you lost? Nothing!)
Always look on the right side of life...

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Immediately when I saw this post yesterday I thought of only one song. Imagine by the Beatles. I am not a creative person but I rewrote it a bit, others could probably do a much better job and hey.... feel free to add some of your own words or change things to what I started. So click on your background music and sing along - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCX3ZNDZAwY

Imagine there's no OCPD
It's easy if you try
No indignation upon us
In us only goodness
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no perfection
It isn't hard to do
No black or white for
And no criticism too
Imagine all the ocpders
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no hoarding
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or more stuff
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

I can just imagine all of us who post on this board, meeting at a karoke bar or a pub (for you Englanders, lol) and each of us standing up to sing our song with each of you in our audience. WOW, I can't sing, I am not creative, where is this stuff coming from????? LOL Hope you have fun with it.
