What's your quit song???

Everyone, please post your quit song and some of the lyrics to it.

here's mine:

Mariah Carey:

LOL - it would be a miracle if I got through this:

There can be miracles

(Miracles)

When you believe

(Lord, when you believe)

Though hope is frail

(Though hope is frail)

It's hard to kill

(Hard to kill, Ohhh)

Who know what miracles,you can achieve

When you believe, somehow you will(somehow,somehow, somehow)

somehow you will

You will when you believe

You will when you

You will when you believe

Just believe...in your heart

Just believe

You will when you believeeeeeeeeeee

  • Mine is Gloria Gaynor - I Will Survive:D:p:D:p

    At first I was afraid

    I was petrified

    Kept thinking I could never live

    Without you by my side

    But then I spent so many nights

    Thinking how you did me wrong

    And I grew strong

    And I learned how to get along

    And so you're back

    From outer space

    I just walked in to find you here

    With that sad look upon your face

    I should have changed that stupid lock

    I should have made you leave your key

    If I've have known for just one second

    You'd be back to bother me

    Go on now go

    Walk out the door

    Just turn around now

    'Cause you're not welcome anymore

    Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbye

    Did you think I'd crumble?

    Did you think I'd lay down and die?

    Oh no, not I

    I will survive

    Oh, as long as I know how to love

    I know I'll stay alive

    I've got all my life to live

    I've got all my love to give

    And I'll survive

    I will survive, hey hey

    It took all the strength I had

    Not to fall apart

    Kept trying hard to mend

    The pieces of my broken heart

    And I spent oh so many nights

    Just feeling sorry for myself

    I used to cry

    But now I hold my head up high

    And you see me

    Somebody new

    I'm not that chained up little person

    Still in love with you

    And so you felt like dropping in

    And just expect me to be free

    But now I'm saving all my loving

    For someone who's loving me

    Go on now go

    Walk out the door

    Just turn around now

    'Cause you're not welcome anymore

    Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbye

    Did you think I'd crumble?

    Did you think I'd lay down and die?

    Oh no, not I

    I will survive

    Oh, as long as I know how to love

    I know I'll stay alive

    I've got all my life to live

    I've got all my love to give

    And I'll survive

    I will survive, oh

  • Mine bizarrely is:

    With tuppence for paper and strings,

    you can have your own set of wings.

    With your feet on the ground,

    you're a bird in flight!

    With your fist holding tight,

    to the string of your kite!

    Let's go fly a kite

    Up to the highest height

    Let's go fly a kite

    And send it soaring

    Up through the atmosphere

    Up where the air is clear

    Oh, let's go fly a kite!

    When you send it flying up there,

    all at once your lighter than air!

    You can dance on the breeze,

    over 'ouses and trees!

    With your fist 'olding tight,

    to the string your kite!

    Let's go fly a kite

    Up to the highest height

    Let's go fly a kite

    And send it soaring

    Up through the atmosphere

    Up where the air is clear

    Oh, let's go fly a kite!

  • Quit song? :confused: Quit song?:confused:

    Nobody told me I needed a quit song :eek:

    *thinks furiously*

    When Ol' Nic whispers in my ear I sometimes do the William Tell Overture with my own lyrics. It goes like this.......

    "Ef off,Ef off,Ef off,Ef off,

    Ef off,Ef off,Ef off,Ef off,

    Ef off,Ef off,Ef off,Ef off,

    Ef off, (hold that note)

    Just EFF OFF!!!!!!"

  • LOL - My no smoking clinic told me to sing a song if you got a craving as you can't think and sing at the same time.

    Give it a try...

  • Lamb - Gorecki

    If I should die this very moment

    I wouldn't fear

    For I've never known completeness

    Like being here

    Wrapped in the warmth of you

    Loving every breath of you

    Still in my heart this moment

    Or it might burst

    Could we stay right here

    Until the end of time until the earth stops turning

    Wanna love you until the seas run dry

    I've found the one I've waited for

    All this time I've loved you

    And never known your face

    All this time I've missed you

    And searched this human race

    Here is true peace

    Here my heart knows calm

    Safe in your soul

    Bathed in your sighs

    Wanna stay right here

    Until the end of time

    'Til the earth stops turning

    Gonna love you until the seas run dry

    I've found the one I've waited for

    The one I've waited for

    All I've known

    All I've done

    All I've felt was leading to this

    All I've known

    All I've done

    All I've felt was leading to this

    Wanna stay right here

    'Til the end of time 'till the earth stops turning

    I'm gonna love you till the seas run dry

    I've found the one I've waited for

    The one I've waited for

    The one I've waited for

    Wanna stay right here

    'Til the end of time 'till the earth stops turning

    I'm gonna love you till the seas run dry

    I've found the one I've waited for

    The one I've waited for

    The one I've waited for

  • Dan your song is ace

  • I think I mentioned this in another thread a few days ago.

    It's not really my quitting song, but I can't get it out of my brain at present.

    I have the Sweeney Todd soundtrack on a loop on my iPod and I always sing along with "Pirelli's Magical Elixir" , especially these words:

    'Twas Pirelli's

    Miracle elixir

    That's what did the trick, sir,

    True, sir, true.

    Was it quick, sir?

    Did it in a tick, sir,

    Just like an elixir

    Ought to do!

    while I wish there was a miracle elixir to stop smoking...

    allmusicals.com/lyrics/swee...

    I smoked my last cigarette 2 Weeks, 1 Day, 7 hours and 6 minutes ago. I have saved £124.14 by not smoking 535 cigarettes. I have saved 1 Day, 20 hours and 35 minutes of my life.

  • Weak by Skunk Anansie has actually popped into my head a few times in weak moments but the words don't fit (much)

    Lost in time I cant count the words

    I said when I thought they went unheard

    All of those harsh thoughts so unkind

    cos I wanted you

    And now I sit here Im all alone

    So here sits a bloody mess, tears fly home

    A circle of angels, deep in war

    cos I wanted you

    Weak as I am, no tears for you

    Weak as I am, no tears for you

    Deep as I am, Im no ones fool

    Weak as I am

    So what am I now Im love last home

    Im all of the soft words I once owned

    If I opened my he heart, thered be no space for air

    cos I wanted you

    Weak as I am, no tears for you

    Weak as I am, no tears for you

    Deep as I am, Im no ones fool

    Weak as I am

    In this tainted soul

    In this weak young heart

    Am I too much for you

    In this tainted soul

    In this weak young heart

    Am I too much for you

    In this tainted soul

    In this weak young heart

    Am I too much for you

    Weak as I am

    Weak as I am

    Weak as I am

    Weak as I am, am, am

    Weak as I am

    Am I to much for you

    Weak as I am

    Am I to much for you

    Weak as I am

    Am I to much for you

    Weak as I am

    Am I to much for you

    Weak as I am

    I'm gonna sing the song by OneMoreTry though.... love it!

  • God, they can get a hybrid of anything these days

    :D

    LOL, they certainly can!

  • Excellent posts so far - keep 'em coming folks and if you haven't got one yet maybe all you need is a bit of inspiration - a song that will always be with you and remind you of the liberation that is your quit.

  • Mine is AFI... Carcinogen Crush. Was the song i was listening to during my last smoke.

    AFI - Carcinogen Crush

    Speechless

    Read the words between your lines

    In isolation

    Silence separates of what design?

    I heard you speak

    Words I know you didn’t write

    But I believe you, believe them

    'Cause you spoke them again in my dreams last night

    I swear to you I’m not the one

    I swear so I’ll become

    Your only desire

    Take a bow

    You’ve performed exquisitely

    Though the millions scream

    I know you’ll see

    Each subtlety’s understood by me

    I

    I would be as devout

    As the high school sweetheart

    That I never had, I s-s-s-s-s-s-swear!

    I swear to you I’m not the one

    I swear so I’ll become

    Your only

    So if you are confined to me

    I swear that you will be

    So lonely (dreaming)

    Airs of grace, your airs of grace will fill me

    Airs of grace, your airs of grace will fill me

    Airs of grace, your airs of grace will fill me

    Airs of grace, your airs of grace just kill me

    Oh!

    I swear to you, I’m not the one

    I swear so I’ll become

    Your only

    So if you are confined to me

    I swear you will be

    So lonely (dream-like)

    Dream-like

    Dream-like

    Brilliant song Barbara - ROFL

  • LOL - My no smoking clinic told me to sing a song if you got a craving as you can't think and sing at the same time.

    Give it a try...

    AWWWW, RIGHT!!!!!! Now I'm all embarrassed :o

    However, this morning when I got off the train, I had as usual, to run the gauntlet of smokers just outside the train station. This set me off thinking about this thread and I furiously made my brain think of a song - any song - to which I knew the words.

    Well, here goes....

    Give me oil in my lamp keep it burnin'

    Give me oil in my lamp I pray....Hallelujah!

    Give me oil in my lamp keep it burnin'

    Keep it burnin' til the break of day.

    Chorus:

    sing Hosanna sing Hosanna sing Hosanna

    to the King of Kings.

    sing Hosanna sing Hosanna sing Hosanna

    to the King of Kings.

    Give me love in my heart, keep me serving

    Give me love in my heart I pray (hallelujah!)

    Give me love in my heart, keep me serving

    Keep me serving 'til the break of day

    Do not ask where that came from - I just remembered it from Sunday School (many moons ago) But I'll tell you what, it made me smile :) and kept my mind well away from cigarettes so it is now officially my quit song!!!!

  • Still giggling at that one. Has to be the best so far...IMHO!

  • Like Viking, this is what I was listening to when I had my last puff of the dreaded weed.

    The Space Between by the fantastic Dave Matthews Band.

    Not got time to write out the words I'm afraid, so here's a link. Good video to go with the song.

  • I'm surprised nobody's picked The Editors song - Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors. Hope I've not stolen anyone's thunder:o

  • Yep, excellent thread. I've had a song I've associated with quitting since the beginning. It does sound weird but on hearing it it always cheered me up during the early days.

    My song is Jungle Love by The Steve Miller Band. It may be best recognised as the theme tune on one of the seasons of Everybody Loves Raymond!

    I met you on somebodys island

    You thought you had known me before

    I brought you a crate of papaya

    They waited all night by your door

    You probably wouldnt remember

    I probably couldnt forget

    Jungle love in the surf in the pouring rain

    Everythings better when wet

    Jungle love its drivin me mad

    Its makin me crazy

    Jungle love its drivin me mad

    Its makin me crazy

    But lately you live in the jungle

    I never see you alone

    But we need some definite answers

    So I thought I would write you a poem

    The question to everyones answer

    Is usually asked from within

    But the patterns of the rain

    And the truth they contain

    Have written my life on your skin

    Jungle love its drivin me mad

    Its makin me crazy

    Jungle love its drivin me mad

    Its makin me crazy

    You treat me like I was your ocean

    You swim in my blood when its warm

    My cycles of circular motion

    Protect you and keep you from harm

    You live in a world of illusion

    Where everythings peaches and cream

    We all face a scarlet conclusion

    But we spend our time in a dream

    Jungle love its drivin me mad

    Its makin me crazy

    Jungle love its drivin me mad

    Its makin me crazy

  • I've got a new quit song for those members carrying extra 'junk in the trunk'...

    I like big butts and I can not lie

    You other brothers can't deny

    That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist

    And a round thing in your face

    You get sprung, wanna pull out your tough

    'Cause you notice that butt was stuffed

    Deep in the jeans she's wearing

    I'm hooked and I can't stop staring

    Oh baby, I wanna get with you

    And take your picture

    My homeboys tried to warn me

    But that butt you got makes me so horny

    Ooh, Rump-o'-smooth-skin

    You say you wanna get in my Benz?

    Well, use me, use me

    'Cause you ain't that average groupie

    I've seen them dancin'

    To hell with romancin'

    She's sweat, wet,

    Got it goin' like a turbo 'Vette

    I'm tired of magazines

    Sayin' flat butts are the thing

    Take the average black man and ask him that

    She gotta pack much back

    So, fellas! (Yeah!) Fellas! (Yeah!)

    Has your girlfriend got the butt? (Hell yeah!)

    Tell 'em to shake it! (Shake it!) Shake it! (Shake it!)

    Shake that healthy butt!

    Baby got back!

  • Just seen this thread. WOW fairy, well impressed by your Skunk Anansie song which is brilliant.

    Fat Bottom Girls by Queen.

    Genius! LMAO! :D

  • I have two :o - both by James Blunt. Both songs remind me - of the terrible things that we do to ourselves. And they remind me - that we have a choice in everything we do, even if it's just a choice in our actions and reactions to someone else.

    "Carry You Home"

    Trouble is her only friend, and he's back again

    Makes her body older than it really is

    And she says it's high time she went away, no one's got much to say in this town

    Trouble is the only way is down, down down

    As strong as you were, tender you go

    I'm watching you breathing, for the last time

    A song for your heart, but when it is quiet

    I know what it means and I'll carry you home, I'll carry you home.

    If she had wings she would fly away and another day God will give her some

    Trouble is the only way is down, down down.

    As strong as you were, tender you go

    I'm watching you breathing, for the last time

    A song for your heart, but when it is quiet

    I know what it means and I'll carry you home, I'll carry you home.

    And they were all born pretty in New York City tonight

    And someone's little girl was taken from the world tonight

    Under the stars and stripes

    As strong as you were, tender you go

    I'm watching you breathing, for the last time

    A song for your heart, but when it is quiet

    I know what it means and I'll carry you home, I'll carry you home. (X2)

    "Same Mistake"

    So while I'm turning in my sheets

    And once again, I cannot sleep

    Walk out the door and up the street

    Look at the stars beneath my feet

    Remember rights that I did wrong

    So here I go

    Hello, hello

    There is no place I cannot go

    My mind is muddy but

    My heart is heavy, does it show

    I lose the track that loses me

    So here I go

    Oo oooooo ooo ooo oo oooo...

    And so I sent some men to fight,

    And one came back at dead of night,

    Said "Have you seen my enemy?"

    Said "he looked just like me"

    So I set out to cut myself

    And here I go

    Oo oooooo ooo ooo oo oooo...

    I'm not calling for a second chance,

    I'm screaming at the top of my voice,

    Give me reason, but don't give me choice,

    Cos I'll just make the same mistake again,

    Oo oooooo ooo ooo oo oooo...

    And maybe someday we will meet

    And maybe talk and not just speak

    Don't buy the promises 'cause

    There are no promises I keep,

    And my reflection troubles me

    So here I go

    Oo oooooo ooo ooo oo oooo...

    I'm not calling for a second chance,

    I'm screaming at the top of my voice,

    Give me reason, but don't give me choice,

    Cos I'll just make the same mistake (REPEAT) again

    Oo oooooo ooo ooo oo oooo...

    So while I'm turning in my sheets

    And once again, I cannot sleep

    Walk out the door and up the street

    Look at the stars

    Look at the stars, falling down,

    And I wonder where, did I go wrong.

  • well obviously i can only have one song but only know the words when drunk...... Auld lang syne

    jojo

  • The Fags Dont Work By the Verve:D

    OK the true title is The Drugs Dont Work.

    I think this is a great method when a craving hits and it's thanks to this board that I heard of it.

    All this talk of getting old

    It's getting me down my love

    Like a cat in a bag, waiting to drown

    This time I'm comin' down

    And I hope you're thinking of me

    As you lay down on your side

    Now the drugs don't work

    They just make you worse

    But I know I'll see your face again

    Now the drugs don't work

    They just make you worse

    But I know I'll see your face again

    But I know I'm on a losing streak

    'Cause I passed down my old street

    And if you wanna show, then just let me know

    And I'll sing in your ear again

    Now the drugs don't work

    They just make you worse

    But I know I'll see your face again

    'Cause baby, ooh, if heaven calls, I'm coming, too

    Just like you said, you leave my life, I'm better off dead

    All this talk of getting old

    It's getting me down my love

    Like a cat in a bag, waiting to drown

    This time I'm comin' down

    Now the drugs don't work

    They just make you worse

    But I know I'll see your face again

    'Cause baby, ooh, if heaven calls, I'm coming, too

    Just like you said, you leave my life, I'm better off dead

    And I'll sing in your ear again

    Now the drugs don't work

    They just make you worse

    But I know I'll see your face again

    Yeah, I know I'll see your face again

    Yeah, I know I'll see your face again

    Yeah, I know I'll see your face again

    Yeah, I know I'll see your face again

    I'm never going down, I'm never coming down

    No more, no more, no more, no more, no more

    I'm never coming down, I'm never going down

    No more, no more, no more, no more, no more

    (Repeat and Fade Out)

    I long song but if you get to the end of it you will have forgot all about smoking and start thinking of Suicide lol, Only kidding:p
