This debate is you favorite songs when you were a child. Childhood is- The more circumscribed period of time from infancy to the onset of puberty.

Voters vote on who's song's are better and rule violations
FF= lose.
If any of these rules are violated then all 7 points go to the opponet.

What its Like by Everlast.
The reason I liked this song as a kid was because of the entrance sounded great and I liked the rythum of it. Funny since I'm now against abortion, but this song is Pro-choice.

My former favorite song is "I'm already there" By Lonestar
Mostly because of this chorus
"I'm already there
Take a look around
I'm the sunshine in your hair
I'm the shadow on the ground
I'm the whisper in the wind
I'm your imaginary friend
And I know I'm in your prayers
Oh I'm already there"
And also because it gave me strength after my father died. He sang this song to me every time it was on.

All the small things- Blink 182

I liked it, because of the chorus, it made me think about turning the bathroom light off.
"Say it ain't so, I will not go
Turn the lights off, carry me home
Na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na "

this song my grandma left for me before she died
Nickleback Far away
"
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

One my knees, I'll ask

Last chance for one last dance

‘Cause with you I'd withstand

All of it 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

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 you anymore

Believe it, hold on to me, never let me go

Keep breathing ‘cause I'm not leaving you anymore

Believe it, hold on to me, never let me go

Hold on to me, never let me go

Hold on to me, never let me go"

American Pie- Don McLean

Growing up this was my favorite song as a kid. I knew the song so well I could sing it and even today. A lot of the times I sing it I cry... that how emotional I get when I sing this song.

How you remind me- Nickleback

I started liking this song because it was my dad's favorite, and now I don't get to see him much since he lives in Midland, TX.

moments by emerson drive
"I was coming to the end of a long long walk
When a man crawled out of a cardboard box
Under the E. Street Bridge
Followed me on to it
I went out halfway across
With that homeless shadow tagging along
So I dug for some change
Wouldn't need it anyway
He took it lookin' just a bit ashamed
He said, You know, I haven't always been this way

I've had my moments, days in the sun
Moments I was second to none
Moments when I knew I did what I thought I couldn't do
Like that plane ride coming home from the war
That summer my son was born
And memories like a coat so warm
A cold wind can't get through
Lookin' at me now you might not know it
But I've had my moments

I stood there tryin' to find my nerve
Wondered if a single soul on Earth
Would care at all
Miss me when I'm gone
That old man just kept hanging around
Lookin' at me, lookin' down
I think he recognized
That look in my eyes
Standing with him there I felt ashamed
I said, You know, I haven't always been this way

I've had my moments, days in the sun
Moments I was second to none
Moments when I knew I did what I thought I couldn't do
Like the day I walked away from the wine
For a woman who became my wife
And a love that, when it was right,
Could always see me through
Lookin' at me now you might not know it
But I've had my moments

I know somewhere 'round a trashcan fire tonight
That old man tells his story one more time
(He says)

I've had my moments, days in the sun
Moments I was second to none
Moments when I knew I did what I thought I couldn't do
Like that cool night on the E. Street Bridge
When a young man almost ended it
I was right there, wasn't scared a bit
And I helped to pull him through
Lookin' at me now you might not know it
Oh, lookin' at me now you might not know it
But I've had my moments (4x's)"
i used to be homeless for a few weeks and this song brings tears to my eyes because of the former life that homeless used to have.

Unforgiven- Metallica

This was my first favorite Metallica song. I'm not like one of those people who like Metallica because of Enter Sandman was on Rock Band... My dad played this song a lot I just really liked the chorus.

What I've felt
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never be
Never see
Won't see what might have been

What I've felt
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven

John Lennon Imagine
"
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too

Imagine all the people

Living life in peace

You, you may say I'm a dreamer

But I'm not the only one

I hope someday you will join us

And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can

No need for greed or hunger

A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people

Sharing all the world

You, you may say I'm a dreamer

But I'm not the only one

I hope someday you will join us

And the world will live as one"
i just love this song.
