Default Al Theme

As there is a Sam Theme thread (http://quantumleap-alsplace.com/foru...ead.php?t=2441), I thought I'd put an Al Theme thread here, as well. Please excuse the grammar; I didn't write the song. I just heard it and liked it.


Al's Theme (especially suited to his time as MIA):


Lonely Day by System of a Down

Such a lonely day
And it's mine
The most loneliest day of my life

Such a lonely day
Should be banned
It's a day that I can't stand

The most loneliest day of my life
The most loneliest day of my life

Such a lonely day
Shouldn't exist
It's a day that I'll never miss

Such a lonely day
And it's mine
The most loneliest day of my life

And if you go
I wanna go with you
And if you die
I wanna die with you

Take your hand
And walk away

The most loneliest day of my life
The most loneliest day of my life
The most loneliest day of my life

Such a lonely day
And it's mine
It's a day that I'm glad I survived


It can be heard by going here: http://www.systemofadown.com

It is the first song played when you reach the website. Many of their songs have explicit lyrics, and their style is not my premier choice of music, but when I heard Lonely Day, Al was the first person that came to mind.

Just thought you guys would enjoy this.

thats great admiral, and i even know two more songs that fit Al perfectly.

shoot, i dont have the lryics on hand, but i can go and find them later. anyway its called "I Don't Want the World to See Me" by the goo goo dolls, and the other i do have the lyrics too. and it works best for Al coming back from vietnam and finding Beth gone from his life.

far away - Nickleback
This time, This place
Misused, Mistakes
Too long, Too late
Who was I to make you wait
Just one chance
Just one breath
Just in case there’s just one left
‘Cause you know,
you know, you know

That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you’ll be with me
and you’ll never go
Stop breathing if
I don’t see you anymore

On my knees, I’ll ask
Last chance for one last dance
‘Cause with you, I’d withstand
All of hell to hold your hand
I’d give it all
I’d give for us
Give anything but I won’t give up
‘Cause you know,
you know, you know

That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you’ll be with me
and you’ll never go
Stop breathing if
I don’t see you anymore

So far away
Been far away for far too long
So far away
Been far away for far too long
But you know, you know, you know

I wanted
I wanted you to stay
‘Cause I needed
I need to hear you say
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I forgive you
For being away for far too long
So keep breathing
‘Cause I’m not leaving
Hold on to me and
never let me go

ok i found the Goo Goo dolls lyircs that i was tlaking about before.

And I’d give up forever to tutch you,
Cause I know that you feel me somehow.
You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be,
And I dont wanna go home right now.
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breath is your life
Well sooner or later it’s over
I just don’t whant to miss you tonight.

And I don’t whant the world to see me,
Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s ment to be broken
I just whant you to know who I am.

And you can’t fight the tears that aint coming
All the moments of truth in your lies.
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah, you bleed just to know you’re alive.

And I don’t whant the world to see me,
Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s ment to be broken
I just whant you to know who I am.

Music

And I don’t whant the world to see me,
Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s ment to be broken
I just whant you to know who I am. X2

I just whant you to know who I am

Hi there im a new member here, long time fan of QL - loving the repeats on ITV3, shame when it comes to an end tho.

I saw this thread and knocked up a quick video with the System of a Down song mentioned 'Lonely day', it was a rush job but you still get the idea from the video. The video fits well with the song, if you've never heard it before give it a view!

Comments are welcome, again it was a cut and paste job!

Wow if this was a rush job....!
Maybe it is just my lack of expertise in this area, but I was well impressed.

Thumbs up Well done!

Wow. That was incredible. I've been under a lot of physical and emotional stress during the past few days, and your video helped me release that stress by causing a good cry, which I didn't realize I needed. (I'm just glad no one came in here to see me like that. ) Thank you so much for your effort.

Hey you're very welcome! It was your original post that inspired me to do it anyway! It also shows a softer side of System of a down for people who have never heard any of their songs, I'll admit that some of their stuff is a little hardcore.

Thanks for all the other comments also, much appreciated!

Dave

I've just discovered a notice on YouTube that states: " This video has been removed due to terms of use violation." I wonder what the violaton was. It was an excellent video.

Pretty much any fan created video is a violation of copyright because of both the use of the video clips and the music. As such, they are violations of YouTubes user agreement. I'd guess that someone who had some kind of stake in whatever was used in this video probably asked for its removal.

I have found the Lonely Day video on Google! It's pixellated more than the original that was on YouTube, but it's there. video

great, a good cry is good. that's why i saw the last door. i think of "mambo number 5" lou bega & "photgraph" kid rock & sheryl crow and "i will remember you" amy grant, sometimes "the way were were" barbra streisand or "i will remember you" sarah mclachlan.

I found this song not long ago that is really good for Al when he loses Beth although a line or two may nt exactly fit most of the song is spot on.

"Incomplete"

Empty spaces fill me up with holes
Distant faces with no place left to go
Without you within me I can't find no rest
Where I’m going is anybody’s guess

I tried to go on like I never knew you
I’m awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all I’m going to be is incomplete

Voices tell me I should carry on
But I am swimming in an ocean all alone
Baby, my baby
It’s written on your face
You still wonder if we made a big mistake

I tried to go on like I never knew you
I’m awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all I’m going to be is incomplete

I don’t mean to drag it on, but I can’t seem to let you go
I don’t wanna make you face this world alone
I wanna let you go (alone)

I tried to go on like I never knew you
I’m awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all I’m going to be is incomplete

Incomplete
