Daughter is an indie-folk band from England. They write some emotional songs that really touch my heart. They can be very therapeutic. They can make you cry. Here are some of their emotional lyrics.

  • Daughter “Landfill” Listen on Youtube

    • Throw me in a landfill. Don’t think about the consequences. Throw me in the dirt pit. Don’t think about the choices that you make. Throw me in the water. Don’t think about the splash I will create. Leave me at the altar. Knowing all the things you just escaped
    • Push me out to sea. On a little boat that you made out of the evergreen that you helped your father cut away. Leave me on the tracks, to wait until the morning train arrives. Don’t you dare look back. Walk away.
    • So leave me in the cold. Wait until the snow covers me up so I cannot move so I’m just embedded in the frost. Then leave me in the rain, wait until my clothes cling to my frame. Wipe away your tear stains. Thought you said you didn’t feel pain
  • Daughter “Candles” Listen on Youtube
    • I’ll do whatever you say to me in the dark. Scared I’ll be torn apart by a wolf in mask of a familiar name on a birthday card
    • Well I have brittle bones it seems. I bite my tongue and I torch my dreams. Have a little voice to speak with and a mind of thoughts and secrecy. Things cannot be reversed, we learn from the times we are cursed. Things cannot be reversed, learn from the ones we fear the worst and learn from the ones we hate the most
    • Cause we both know I’ll never be your lover. I only bring the heat, company under cover, filling space in your sheets
  • Daughter “Medicine” Listen on Youtube
    • Pick it up, pick it all up and start again. You’ve got a second chance, you could go home. Escape it all. It’s just irrelevant. It’s just medicine.
    • You could still be, what you want to, what you said you were, when I met you.
    • You’ve got a warm heart, you’ve got a beautiful brain. But it’s disintegrating from all the medicine.
  • Daughter “Youth” Listen on Youtube
    • Shadows settle on the place, that you left. Our minds are troubled by the emptiness. Destroy the middle, it’s a waste of time. From the perfect start to the finish line.
    • We are the reckless. We are the wild youth, chasing visions of our futures. One day we’ll reveal the truth that one will die before he gets there.
    • And if you’re still bleeding, you’re the lucky ones. ‘Cause most of our feelings, they are dead and they are gone. We’re setting fire to our insides for fun. Collecting pictures from a flood that wrecked our home. It was a flood that wrecked this home.
    • Well I’ve lost it all, I’m just a silhouette, a lifeless face that you’ll soon forget. My eyes are damp from the words you left ringing in my head, when you broke my chest. Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest.
    • And if you’re in love, then you are the lucky one, ‘Cause most of us are bitter over someone. Setting fire to our insides for fun, to distract our hearts from ever missing them. But I’m forever missing him.
  • Daughter “Smother” Listen on Youtube
    • I’m wasted, losing time. I’m a foolish, fragile spine. I want all that is not mine. I want him but we’re not right.
    • I should go now quietly. For my bones have found a place to lie down and sleep. Where all my layers can become reeds. All my limbs can become trees. All my children can become me. What a mess I leave to follow.
    • In the darkness I will meet my creators. They will all agree, I’m a suffocator.
    • Suffocator. Oh no. I’m sorry if I smothered you. I sometimes wish I’d stayed inside my mother, never to come out.
