As I Sat Sadly By Her Side
by Nick Cave

(c) Nick Cave

As I sat sadly by her side
At the window, through the glass
She stroked a kitten in her lap
And we watched the world as it fell past
Softly she spoke these words to me
And with brand new eyes, open wide
We pressed our faces to the glass
As I sat sadly by her side

She said, "Father, mother, sister, brother,
Uncle, aunt, nephew, niece,
Soldier, sailor, physician, labourer,
Actor, scientist, mechanic, priest
Earth and moon and sun and stars
Planets and comets with tails blazing
All are there forever falling
Falling lovely and amazing"

Then she smiled and turned to me
And waited for me to reply
Her hair was falling down her shoulders
As I sat sadly by her side

As I sat sadly by her side
The kitten she did gently pass
Over to me and again we pressed
Our different faces to the glass
"That may be very well", I said
"But watch the one falling in the street
See him gesture to his neighbours
See him trampled beneath their feet
All outward motion connects to nothing
For each is concerned with their immediate need
Witness the man reaching up from the gutter
See the other one stumbling on who can not see"

With trembling hand I turned toward her
And pushed the hair out of her eyes
The kitten jumped back to her lap
As I sat sadly by her side

Then she drew the curtains down
And said, "When will you ever learn
That what happens there beyond the glass
Is simply none of your concern?
God has given you but one heart
You are not a home for the hearts of your brothers

And God does not care for your benevolence
Anymore than he cares for the lack of it in others
Nor does he care for you to sit
At windows in judgement of the world He created
While sorrows pile up around you
Ugly, useless and over-inflated"

At which she turned her head away
Great tears leaping from her eyes
I could not wipe the smile from my face
As I sat sadly by her side

Hmm... last one was Blind Melon's "No Rain," because it was playing in the drugstore.

The last one that affected me deeply was one I hadn't heard in nine years (it popped up on my iPod). By a little-known Florida band called For Squirrels, part of the 1990s power-pop surge. The song, "Mighty KC" is catchy, and in some ways, it's a bit cheesy; it's about Kurt Cobain, and it's melodramatic, not particularly poetic, but here's the weird part:

The kids - they were 21 and 22 at the time - in the band had just signed their major label deal and were driving their van back to Florida when a tire blew out, they crashed, and all but two of the band members were killed.

Now read the lyrics:

She lies in a bedpan with her name scrawled on her back
It sure sounds funny when you say his name like that
He lies in an empty room with his hair burnt to the back
It sure sounds funny when you say his name like that

Ship me off to the morgue
I'm ready to be buried alone way down in my bed
And I'm alone without the sun
Send me off to the morgue
I'm ready to be buried away down in my bed
And I'm alone without the sun
Please just take one

And by the grace of god go I into the great unknown
Thing are gonna change in our favor
And if we gather, if we fall over the great unknown
Things are gonna change in our favor

100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 Oh they're found dead, dead
And I am numb from watching TV
100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 Oh they're just there, there
And I am numb from watching TV
Please don't break me

And by the grace of god go I into the great unknown
Things are gonna change in our favor
And if we gather, if we fall over the great unknown
Things are gonna change in our favor
***

The song wound up being this eerily uptempo, yet minor-chord foreshadowing of the singer's own death.

I interviewed the two survivors a few months later; they were trying to keep the band alive, but the lead singer, who had died, was really the cornerstone of the whole thing.

Don't know if this makes sense without knowing the song, but I wound up crying when I was listening to it. I've interviewed a few musicians who later killed themselves (no correlation... I hope) and met many more casually, and hearing their music puts me in this melancholy headspace, even if the songs are power-pop, like Charlatans or Lush. Which takes me back to "No Rain" and the Blind Melon guy who ODed. The perkier the song, the more depressed I get remembering them.

Listened to Jeff Buckley's "The Sky Is A Landfill" earlier...

Circle around the park
Joining hands in silence
Watch the evil black the sky

The storm has ripped the shelter
Of illusion from our brow
This power is no mystery to us now.

Leave your spirit genocide
The cancer you wonít remove
We cast our funeral rose inside
And bury the need to prove
Our mutilation is to gain from the system

Ooh, turn your head away
From the screen, oh people
It will tell you nothing more
Donít suck the milk of flaccid Bill K.
Publicís empty promise
To the people that the public can ignore

This way of life is so devised
To snuff out the mind that moves
Moving with grace the men despise
And women have learned to lose

Throw off your shame or be
a slave to the system

I see you take another drag
One more lost soul to raise your flag
The sky is a landfill
I see you take another drag
Letís see you take another drag

You like to dance to the rolling
Head of the adulteress
You sing in praise of suicide
We know youíre useless
Like cops at the scene of the crime

With your steroids and your feedbag
And your stable and your trainer
I got a mail bomb for you Mister Strong Arm.

Throw out the stones from all the cemetery homes
For the violence of a nation gone by

Or the politics of weakness
And the garbage dump of souls
That will now black the sky

Their yellow haze and crowds of eyes
Will plug up the mind that moves
Moving with grace the men despise
And women have learned to lose
Weíll share our bodies
In disdain for the system

Oh, I see you take another drag
One nation bends to kiss the hag
The sky is a landfill
I see you take another drag
I see you take another drag
I have no fear of this machine!

Living my Life in slow hell
different girl every night at the hotel
I ain't seen the sunshine in three damn days
Fueling up on cocaine and whiskey
Wish I had a good girl to miss me
Lord I wonder if I'll ever change my ways

I put your picture away
Sat down and cried today
I can't look at you while I'm lying next to her

I put your picture away
Sat down and cried today
I can't look at you while I'm lying next to her



I called you last night in the hotel
Everyone knows but they won't tell
But there half hearted smiles tell me something just ain't right
I've been waiting on you for a long time
Fueling up on heartaches and cheap wine
I ain't heard from you in three damn nights

I put your picture away
I wondered where you been
I can't look at you while I'm lying next to him

I put your picture away
I wondered where you been
I can't look at you while I'm lying next to him


I saw you yesterday with a old friend
It was the same ol same my with my review been
Since you been gone my worlds been dark and grey

You reminding me of brighter days
I hope you were coming home to stay

I was head of the Church
I was off to drink you away

I thought about you for a long time
Can't seem to get you off my mind
I can't stand why where living life this way

I found your picture today
I swear I'll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home

I found your picture today
I swear I'll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home

I just called to say I love you come back home

"Delicate" by Damien Rice. Sorry, no lyrics.

William Haskins
04-10-2005, 04:07 AM
We might kiss when we are alone
When nobody's watching
I might take you home
We might make out when nobody's there
It's not that we're scared
It's just that it's delicate

So why do you fill my sorrow
With the words you've borrowed
From the only place (that) you've known
And why do you sing Hallelujah
If it means nothing to you
Why do you sing with me at all?

We might live like never before
When there's nothing to give
Well how can we ask for more
We might make love in some sacred place
The look on your face is delicate

So why do you fill my sorrow
With the words you've borrowed
From the only place (that) you've known
And why do you sing Hallelujah
If it means nothing to you
Why do you sing with me at all?

So why do you fill my sorrow
With the words you've borrowed
From the only place (that) you've known
And why do you sing Hallelujah
If it means nothing to you
Why do you sing with me at all?

Here's two more I have queued up, in case anyone wants to download them if they've never heard of this guy...they're really good songs.

Trust me.

These are both by a fellow named Teitur.

"You're The Ocean"

There's too much sky, not enough blue
There's too many questions to why I love you
There's too many clouds, not enough sun
The rain must fall on everyone

I'm fire-you're the ocean
I'm energy-you're the rhythm
Love is somewhere in between
What you believe and what you dream
I'm just trying to make you mine
You're the ocean

There's too much doubt and not enough dare
There's too much decision everywhere
There's too much talk and not enough time
Let's close our eyes and not our minds

I'm fire-you're the ocean
I'm energy-you're the rhythm
Love is somewhere in between
What you believe and what you dream
I'm just trying to make you mine

You look for leads, I follow clues
You love to win, I dare to lose
Mostly you're a mind game in my head

You are earth, I am water
I can give you what you're after
You can be the word:I can be the rhyme:
There's really nothing you can do
You're going where I'm going too
Stay beside me, stay beside me
I want you

I'm fire-you're the ocean
I'm energy-you're the rhythm
Love is somewhere in between
What you believe and what you dream
I'm just trying to make you mine
You're the ocean


Another good one by him is...

"I Was Just Thinking"

I was just thinking
that I have been missing you for way too long
There's something inside this weary head
that wants us to love just instead
But I was just thinking, merely thinking

I've got loads of pictures
I've got the one of you in that dancing dress
But man I feel silly in that dim light
Just after doing you by the sight of My Kodak delights
I am sinking, merely sinking

I think about long distance rates
instead of kissing you babe
I'm a singer without a song
If I wait for you longer
my affection is stronger,
I was just thinking, merely thinking
That this boat is sinking

I'm tired of postcards,
especially the ones with cute dogs and cupids
I'm tired of calling you,
missing you,
dreaming I've slept with you
Don't get me wrong I still desperately love you

Inside this weary head I just want us to love instead
But I was just thinking and thinking,
merely thinking

I think about long distance rates
instead of kissing you babe
And time is running me still
If I wait for you longer
my affection is stronger

I was just thinking - I was just thinking
That I'm tired of calling you once a week
And thinking of long distance rates
instead of kissing you
Baby, I'm sinking


Go download them.

You, too, Haskins.

Moonlight Drive by The Doors

Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Penetrate the evenin' that the
City sleeps to hide
Let's swim out tonight, love
It's our turn to try
Parked beside the ocean
On our moonlight drive
Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Surrender to the waiting worlds
That lap against our side
Nothin' left open
And no time to decide
We've stepped into a river
On our moonlight drive
Let's swim to the moon
Let's climb through the tide
You reach your hand to hold me
But I can't be your guide
Easy, I love you
As I watch you glide
Falling through wet forests
On our moonlight drive, baby
Moonlight drive
Come on, baby, gonna take a little ride
Down, down by the ocean side
Gonna get real close
Get real tight
Baby gonna drown tonight
Goin' down, down, down

Wurdwise, I love the song "Picture."

Here's the last song I heard today coming home from work. Listening to Christian Rock countdown, this is #1 last two weeks.

Take You Back/Jeremy CampThe reason why I stand
The answer lies in you
You hung to make me strong
Though my praise was few
When I fall and bring your name down

But I have found in you
A heart that pleads forgiveness
Replacing all these thoughts
Of painful memories
But I know
That your response will always be

(Chorus)
I'll take you back always
And even when your fight is over now
Even when your fight is over now
I'll take you back always
And even when the pain is coming through
Even when the pain is coming through
I'll take you back

You satisfy this cry
Of what I'm looking for
And I take all I can
And lay it down
Before the throne of endless grace, now
That radiates what's true

I'm in the only place
That erases all these faults
That have overtaken me
But I know
That your response will always be

(Repeat Chorus)

I can only speak
With a grateful heart
As I'm pieced by this gift
Of your love

I will always bring an offering
I can never thank you enough

(Chorus Two)
You'll take me back always
And even when my fight is over now
Even when my fight is over now
You'll take me back always
And even when my pain is coming through
Even when my pain is coming through
You'll take me back always

Even when my fight is over now
Even when my fight is over now

You'll take me back always

Even when my pain is coming through
Even when my pain is coming through

You'll take me back

The Ghost Song -- Jim Morrison

Shake dreams from your hair
My pretty child, my sweet one.
Choose the day and choose the sign of your day
The day's divinity
First thing you see.

A vast radiant beach in a cool jeweled moon
Couples naked race down by it's quiet side
And we laugh like soft, mad children
Smug in the wooly cotton brains of infancy
The music and voices are all around us.


The Crystal Ship

Before you slip into unconsciousness
I'd like to have another kiss
Another flashing chance at bliss
Another kiss, another kiss
The days are bright and filled with pain
Enclose me in your gentle rain
The time you ran was too insane
We'll meet again, we'll meet again
Oh tell me where your freedom lies
The streets are fields that never die
Deliver me from reasons why
You'd rather cry, I'd rather fly
The crystal ship is being filled
A thousand girls, a thousand thrills
A million ways to spend your time
When we get back, I'll drop a line



Ahh...The Lizard King. What a poet...:heart:

One of my favourite songs. Inspired by To Kill a Mockingbird. Galoot and other BC-ers, take note. This is one of your own:

Water to the Moon

Every single rock turned over is uncovering my doubt,
I am on the inside wanting out
If I left here yesterday it wouldn't be too soon
But I am drawn to her

Like water to the moon, like water to the moon

If a picture paints a thousand words
Well then she's a thousand pictures
I would kick and fight, howl all night
Just for one look at her scriptures
Her majesty is her poetry
Her words could leave a man in ruin
And I am drawn to her

Like water to the moon, like water to the moon

All the pushing and the pulling
All the come here go away
All the stories, no, their telling
I'm the one who has to pay

Once a chef, once a gangster
Now she is an actress
Yes she borrows and she begs
Says if you want to make an omlette in Hollywood
You've got to break a few legs
If she ever sang of love to me
It would surely be out of tune
But I am drawn to her

Like water to the moon
Like water to the moon
Like water to the moon
Like water to the moon

Northern Sky -- Nick Drake

I never felt magic crazy as this
I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea
I never held emotion in the palm of my hand
Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree
But now you're here
Brighten my northern sky.

I've been a long time that i'm waiting
Been a long that i'm blown
I've been a long time that i've wandered
Through the people i have known
Oh, if you would and you could
Straighten my new mind's eye.

Would you love me for my money
Would you love me for my head
Would you love me through the winter
Would you love me 'til i'm dead
Oh, if you would and you could
Come blow your horn on high.

I never felt magic crazy as this
I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea
I never held emotion in the palm of my hand
Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree
But now you're here
Brighten my northern sky.

"Scars" - Papa Roach

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And my scars remind me that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I'm Drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
I'm pissed 'cause you came around
Why don't you just go home?
'Cause I channeled all your pain
And I can't help you fix yourself
You're making me insane
All I can say is...

[Chorus:]
I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
And my weakness is that I care too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I tried to help you once
Against my own advice
I saw you going down
But you never realized
That you're drowning in the water
So I offered you my hand
Compassion's in my nature
Tonight is our last stand

[Chorus]

I'm drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
You shoulda' never come around
Why don't you just go home?
'Cause you're drowning in the water
And I tried to grab your hand
I left my heart open
But you didn't understand
But you didn't understand

Go fix yourself

I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life
I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life

[Chorus x2]

Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in a war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

The tank is full, the switch is on
The night is warm, the cops are gone
The rocket-bike is all her own
It's called a Hurricane

She told me once it's quite a ride
It's shaped so there's this place inside
Where if you're moving, you can hide
Safe within the rain

{Refrain}
She wants to run away
But there's no where that she can go
Nowhere the pain won't come again
But she can hide
Hide in the pouring rain
She rides the eye of a Hurricane

Tell the truth, explain to me
How you got this need for speed
She laughed and said
"It might just be the next best thing to love"

Hope is gone, and she confessed
That when you lay your dream to rest
You can get what's second best
But it's hard to get enough

{Refrain}

We saw her ride, so fast last night
Racing by in a flash of light

Riding quick the street was dark
The shining truck she thought was parked
It blocked her path, stopped her heart
But not the Hurricane

She saw her chance to slip the trap
There was just the room to pass in back
But then it moved, closed the gap
She never felt the pain

(Refrain)

Comfortably Numb -- Pink Floyd

Hello.
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone home?

Come on, now.
I hear youíre feeling down.
Well I can ease your pain,
Get you on your feet again.

Relax.
I need some information first.
Just the basic facts:
Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant shipís smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I canít hear what youíre sayiní.
When I was a child I had a fever.
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I got that feeling once again.
I canít explain, you would not understand.
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb.

Ok.
Just a little pinprick. [ping]
Thereíll be no more --aaaaaahhhhh!
But you may feel a little sick.

Can you stand up?
I do believe itís working. good.
Thatíll keep you going for the show.
Come on itís time to go.

There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant shipís smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I canít hear what youíre sayiní.
When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone.
I cannot put my finger on it now.
The child is grown, the dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb.

My kids, who are little and should be in bed, are listening to the B-52s "Deadbeat Club." They're choreographing a dance to it.

I can't impose bedtime in the middle of that! Luckily their dad is less romantic. All's quiet now.

Oh! You must buy one. Pink Floyd is some very powerful music. It sucks ya right in. I was never much of a Pink Floyd fan until I started dating this guy years ago. He turned me on to them and I've loved Pink Floyd ever since. I would suggest The Wall or Dark Side of the Moon. There are so many great ones. But for starters, those two are excellent!

People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down
When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange X3
People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted

pink floyd - "dogs" (album: animals)

You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking.
And after a while, you can work on points for style
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake
A certain look in the eye, and an easy smile
You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to
So that when they turn their backs on you
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.

You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder
You know it's going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you get older
And in the end you'll pack up, fly down south
Hide your head in the sand
Just another sad old man
All alone and dying of cancer.

And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest you have sown
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
And it's too late to loose the weight you used to need to throw around
So have a good drown, as you go down, all alone
Dragged down by the stone.

I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused
Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise
If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this maze?
Deaf, dumb, and blind, you just keep on pretending
That everyone's expendable and no-one has a real friend
And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner
And everythings done under the sun
And you believe at heart, everyone's a killer.

Who was born in a house full of pain
Who was trained not to spit in the fan
Who was told what to do by the man
Who was broken by trained personnel
Who was fitted with collar and chain
Who was given a pat on the back
Who was breaking away from the pack
Who was only a stranger at home
Who was ground down in the end
Who was found dead on the phone
Who was dragged down by the stone.

She Sang the Red River Valley by Reckless Kelly (Live at Stubbs Album)

At General Delivery she picks up her mail
Her momma says Johnny just got out of jail
She hopes he don't know where she's at
How could she have ever loved that kind of cat

She remembers the dance in the moonlight
From the Hall to the back of his car
He taught her how to drink whiskey
Three chords on a pawn shop guitar

She remembers the first time he kissed her
Back when the feeling was new
And she sang the Red River Valley
For the cowboy who loved her so true

She's working each night at what she knows best
Hanging in bars with professional guests
She picks up a young buckaroo
Because he reminds of her of someone she knew

The telephone rings off the hook by her bed
The other ends Johnny with a gun to his head
He said "You always looked good in black"
The next thing she heard was a bone chilling crack

She pulls into town just at sunrise
Her momma has strong coffee on
She said "You know he's always been crazy
It's best for us all that he's gone."

So at the request of the family
A service was held for a few
And she sang the Red River Valley
For the cowboy who loved her so true

She remembered the dance in the moonlight
From the Hall to the back of his car
He taught her how to drink whiskey
Three chords on a pawn shop guitar

She remembered the first time he kissed her
Back when the feeling was new
And she sang the Red River Valley
From the cowboy who loved her so true

(my all time favorite song)

People Are Strange - The Doors

Thanks bunches! I must admit, I too am a loyal subject of the great Lizard King!

I plan to buy a good PF album as soon as I can scrape up some cash. I'm in a kind of "college music" kick right now, but I still have a few *cough*burned*cough* albums of older music I listen to, more than a few of them have Floyd, the Who, the Doors, Led Zeppelin and so on and so forth on them. It's so great to find kindred sprits. Here's another great Pink Floyd tune:

On the Turning Away - Pink Floyd

On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won't understand
"Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away"

It's a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting it's shroud
Over all we have known
Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we're all alone
In the dream of the proud

On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord
Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerized as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
It's not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there'll be
No more turning away?

So am I! I love that man! Mmmm..Yummy! :heart:

I know someone who looks just like him. I'll have to send you a couple pictures of this guy one day. You'll freak at the resemblance.

Have you read any of his poetry? There's a few books of his writings. If you haven't, when you can, pick up The American Night: The Writings of Jim Morrison, volumes 1 & 2.

Here's a link to a VERY good Jim Morrison tribute:

Tears of the Dragon, Bruce Dickinson

For too long now, there were secrets in my mind
For too long now, there were things I should have said
In the darkness...i was stumbling for the door
To find a reason - to find the time, the place, the hour

Waiting for the winter sun, and the cold light of day
The misty ghosts of childhood fears
The pressure is building, and I canít stay away

I throw myself into the sea
Release the wave, let it wash over me
To face the fear I once believed
The tears of the dragon, for you and for me

Where I was, I had wings that couldnít fly
Where I was, I had tears I couldnít cry
My emotions frozen in an icy lake
I couldnít feel them until the ice began to break

I have no power over this, you know Iím afraid
The walls I built are crumbling
The water is moving, Iím slipping away...

I throw myself into the sea
Release the wave, let it wash over me
To face the fear I once believed
The tears of the dragon, for you and for me

Slowly I awake, slowly I rise
The walls I built are crumbling
The water is moving, Iím slipping away...

I throw (I throw)
Myself (myself)
Into the sea
Release the wave, let it wash over me
To face (to face)
The fear (the fear)
I once believed
The tears of the dragon, for you and for me

I throw (I throw)
Myself (myself)
Into the sea
Release the wave, let it wash over me
To face (to face)
The fear (the fear)
I once believed,
The Tears of the dragon, for you and for me

After reading the Doors stuff, I had to put on my fav. Doors song. PEACE FROG...




Oh yes! Peace Frog! Love it! :Clap:

Light my Fire -- The Doors

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire

Working on the assumption that the last music I played is the song that's stuck in my head since yesterday, it's The Darkness' "Get Your Hands Off Of My Woman, Mother----er" (I know, so little class!), which is first-rate exercise material. You gotta move! Plus the guy's voice is, in a word, freakadelic.

04-11-2005, 02:14 AM
I just listened to this song, but you Canadians don't think for a minute this has anything to do with Texas not taking over!


:flag:

I know you think that I shouldn't still love you,
Or tell you that.
But if I didn't say it, well I'd still have felt it
where's the sense in that?

I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder
Or return to where we were

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

I know I left too much mess and
destruction to come back again
And I caused nothing but trouble
I understand if you can't talk to me again
And if you live by the rules of "it's over"
then I'm sure that that makes sense

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

And when we meet
Which I'm sure we will
All that was there
Will be there still
I'll let it pass
And hold my tongue
And you will think
That I've moved on....

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

Just got home from a road trip. Last song:

IN THE SHELTER Jimmy Buffett

In the shelter, in the morning as
the sun was brightly gleaming,
I heard her crying out,
"What is it all about? I just don't know,
but I can't go back home."

Lonely princess, all the days out
on your own are growing empty.
Nothin' is goin' well; if you
could only tell them how you feel.
But they're too real to understand.

Too many trite expressions ending in
forced rejection long ago.
Too many innocent faces in too many
far-out places; something's wrong.

Let me tell you that something's wrong.
It's been that way so long, and it's a shame.

On the street car to the city,
where she knows that she may lose it all,
riding for just a dime,
takin' her own sweet and knowing well
that this could be her final fall,
past the boutique, down the alley,
to the river, people pass her by.
She sits on the big grey rocks;
takes off her boots and socks,
not knowing what she will do next;
just starts to cry.

To many small suggestions ending in
angry questions from her dad.
To many TV dinners; ah, everyone
loves a winner, but she has lost.
No ones knows the trials she had.

In the shelter, in the morning as
the sun was brightly gleaming,
I heard her crying out,
"What is it all about? I just
don't know, but I can't go back home."
Hell, I just don't know, but
I can't go back home.

You promised me red roses and gold but soon you forgot

Just me and you

You promised me I could be your queen and youíd be my king
You promised me a white wedding dress, where is the ring?
You promised me your tender caress your kisses at night
So try to show it wasnít in vein coz Iím wasting my time

[Chorus]

You promised me
Just me and you

Wires by Athlete. It's a very poignant track with lyrics that relate to a very traumatic time in my life.

You got wires, going in
You got wires, coming out of your skin
You got tears, making tracks,
I got tears, that are scared of the fact

Running down corridors through,
automatic doors
Got to get to you
Got to see this through
I seen hope is here
In a plastic box
I've seen christmas lights, reflect in your eyes

You got wires, going in
You got wires, coming out of your skin
There's dry blood, on your wrist
Your dry blood, On my fingertip

Running down corridors through,
automatic doors
got to get to you
got see this through

First night of your life
Curled up on your own
Looking at me now
You would never know

I see it in your eyes
I see it in your eyes
You'll be alright

I see it in your eyes
I see it in your eyes
You'll be alright

Alright...

Running down corridors through,
automatic doors
Got to get to you
Got to see this through
I see hope is here
In a plastic box
I've seen Christmas lights reflect in your eyes

Running down corridors through,
automatic doors
Got to get to you
Got to see this through
First night of your life
Curled up on your own
Looking at you now
You would never know

Just heard this in my truck on the way here...

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
and I'm the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah,
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line
Of the edge and where I walk alone

Read between the lines
What's ****ed up and everything's alright
Check my vital signs
To know I'm still alive and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah
Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I walk alone
I walk a...

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone...

Just fun stuff...


Well you should see my story-reading baby, you should hear the things that she says,
She says "Hon, drop dead, I'd rather go to bed with Gabriel Garcia Marquez."

Cuddle up with William S. Burrows, leave on the light for Bell Hooks,
I've been flirtin' with Pierre Burton 'cause he's so smart in his books

I like to go out dancing,
My baby loves a bunch of authors
My heart's so broke and bleedin'

Baby's just sitting there
doing some reading

So I started watching some TV, played my new cd player too,
She said: "Turn it off or I'll call the cops and I'll throw the book at you."
All this arguing made me get dizzy, called my doctor to come have a look
I said: "Doctor hurry!" He said:
"Don't worry, I'll be over when I finish my book"

I like to go out dancing,
My baby loves a bunch of authors
We've been livin in hovels
Spendin' all our money on
brand new novels

So I got myself on a streetcar and it drove right into someone,
You know the driver said:
"I was lookin' straight ahead!"
But he was reading the Toronto Sun

So my honey and me go to a counsellor to help figure out what we need
She said: "We'll get your love growing,
but before we get going, here's some books I'd like you to read."

I like to go out dancing,
My baby loves a bunch of authors
Lately we've had some fricton
'Cause my baby's hooked on
short works of fiction

So we split and went to a party, some friends my girl said she knew
But what a sight 'cause it's authors night and the place looks like a who's who

Now I'm pounding the ouzo
with Mario Puzo

Who's a funny fella?
W.P. Kinsella

Who brought the cat?
Would Margeret Atwood?

Who needs a shave?
He's Robertson Davies!

Ondaatje started a food fight, salmon mousse all over the scene
Spilled some dressing on Doris Lessing, these writer types are a scream!

I like to go out dancing,
My baby loves a bunch of authors
We'll be together for ages
Eatin' and Sleepin' and
Turnin' pages.

Note this is the recording by the person who actually wrote the song and released it first.....not Tim McGraw. (who I personally cannot stand)

Here we are what is left of a husband and a wife
With four young kids who have a way with getting on with their lives
I'm not old but I'm getting a whole lot older every day
It's too late to keep from going crazy, I've got to get away.

The reason that I can't stay don't have a thing to do with being in love
I understand that loving a man shouldn't have to be this rough
You aint the only one who feels like this world's left you far behind
I don't know why you gotta be angry all the time

Our boys are strong now, the spitting image of you when you were young
I hope someday they can see past what you have become
And I remember every time I said I'd never leave
But what I can't live with are memories of the way you used to be

The reason that I can't stay don't have a thing to do with being in love
I understand that loving a man shouldn't have to be this rough
You aint the only one who feels like this world's left you far behind
I don't know why you gotta be angry all the time

Twenty years have came and left since I walked out of your door
I never quite made it back to the one I was before
And God it hurts me to think of you before the light in your eyes was gone
Sometimes I don't know why this old world can't leave well enough alone

The reason that I can't stay don't have a thing to do with being in love
I understand that loving a man shouldn't have to be this rough
You aint the only one who feels like this world's left you far behind
I don't know why you gotta be angry all the time.

You know how, once every five or ten years, you pick up a book by someone you've never heard of and become an immediate fan because it's so good? And how you realize that you have to own the author's entire catalog?

I sat in the car three hours ago, radio on, listening to the last half of a song so attention-grabbing I felt kicked between the legs. Except it didn't hurt. Soulful rock, like Joe Cocker on his best day. They went straight to commercial afterwards, and the announcer didn't name the artist. Dammit! Thankfully, there's the web. The station has a site that lists recently played songs. Yes!

Based on half a song, I am now a Marc Broussard (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0002IQIG0/103-6580073-3317405?v=glance) fan.

Home

Rolling down the road
Going no where
Guitar packed in the trunk
Somewhere round mile marker 112
Papa started hummin the funk
I gotta jones in my bones before we know
We were singing this melody
Stop the car pulled out the guitar
Halfway to New Orleans

Said take me home
Take me home

Could feel the sun about to rise
When I realized we ad nothing to fear
It's just me and my daddy and a kid named Cope
Making music that nobody would hear
And then the sun let up and it split the night

Said take me home
Take me home
Said take me home
Said take me home

This greyhound is delta bound mama
Baby boy done finally found
Said this greyhound is delta bound mama
Said take me home

Hot damn you should have felt the groove
Like I was swimming in a sea of soul
The sun was rising and the day was hot
And we was all about to lose control
My daddy turned his face up towards the sky
And I knew that there was nothing to lose
I felt the crow breathe in and I closed my eyes
And we disappeared into the groove

Said take me home
Said take me home
Take me home
Said take me home

Straight from the water
Straight from the water children
[repeat]
You don't know nothing about this

Take me home
Said take me home
[repeat]

Sweet Angel -- Jimi Hendrix

TOLD ME A STORY YESTERDAY
ABOUT THE SWEET LOVE BETWEEN THE MOON AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA
AND WHEN IT WAS TIME FOR HER TO LEAVE SHE SPREAD HER WINGS HIGH OVER ME
AND SAID I SHALL RETURN TOMORROW

AND I SAID FLY ON MY SWEET ANGEL
FLY ON THROUGH THE SKY
FLY ON MY SWEET, SWEET ANGEL
TOMORROW I SHALL HAVE YOU BY MY SIDE

SURE ENOUGH THIS MORNIN' CAME TO ME
SILVER WINGS SILHOUETTED AGAINST THE GOLDEN ROSE OF TODAY'S SUNRISE
AND THE ANGEL SHE BENT DOWN AND TOLD ME
YOU'LL NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THIS PLACE JUST WIPE YOUR WEEPIN' EYES
I'LL TAKE YOU WHERE YOU'VE NEVER BEEN, YOU CAN FLY
I LOOKED AROUND AND I THOUGHT

FLY ON MY LITTLE ANGEL
FLY ON THROUGH THE SKY
FLY ON MY SWEET ANGEL
TOMORROW I'LL BE BY YOUR SIDE
I GOT MY WINGS TO FLY

"The Man Who Couldn't Cry"
(c) Johnny Cash

There once was a man and he couldn't cry
He hadn't cried for years and for years
Napalmed babies and the movie love story
For instance, could not produce tears
As a child he had cried as all children will
Then at some point his tear ducts ran dry
He grew to be a man, the feces hit the fan
Things got bad, but he couldn't cry

His dog was run over, his wife up and left him
And after that he got sacked from his job
Lost his arm in the war, was laughed at by a whore
Ah, but sill not a sniffle or sob

His novel was refused, his movie was panned
And his big Broadway show was a flop

He got sent off to jail; you guessed it, no bail
Oh, but still not a dribble or drop

In jail he was beaten, bullied and buggered
And made to make license plates
Water and bread was all he was fed
But not once did a tear stain his face

Doctors were called in, scientists, too
Theologians were last and practically least

They all agreed sure enough; this was sure no cream puff
But in fact an insensitive beast

He was removed from jail and placed in a place
For the insensitive and the insane
He played lots of chess and made lots of friends
And he wept every time it would rain

Once it rained forty days and it rained forty nights
And he cried and he cried and he cried and he cried

On the forty-first day, he passed away
He just dehydrated and died

Well, he went up to heaven, located his dog
Not only that, but he rejoined his arm
Down below, all the critics, they took it all back
Cancer robbed the whore of her charm

His ex-wife died of stretch marks, his ex-employer went broke
The theologians were finally found out

Right down to the ground, that old jail house burned down
The earth suffered perpetual drought

Before this street light
Em G D -A D/D/Em/C x2
Watching the snow fall on this cold December night
Never thought this could happen
But somehow the feeling's gone
You got sick of the patterns
And I got lost in this song
CHORUS, SOLO (verse chord progression)
CHORUS, then:
Em G D A....
And out in the middle of Lake Ontario
Em G
The same snow is falling
Em G
On the deep silent water
Em G
The great dark wonders
G D A
Into the waves of my heart
G D A
Into the waves of my heart
D/D/Em/C, D/D/Em/C-Bm-A
of my heart

Voodoo - Godsmack

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins.
Never did I wanna be here again,
And I don't remember why I came.
Candles raise my desire,
Why I'm so far away.
No more meaning to my life,
No more reason to stay.
Freezing, feeling,
Breathe in, breathe in...
I'm coming back again...
[repeat chorus]
Hazing clouds rain on my head,
Empty thoughts fill my ears.
Find my shade by the moonlight,
Why my thoughts aren't so clear.
Demons dreaming,
Breathe in, breathe in...
I'm coming back again...
[repeat chorus 4 times]
Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo, voodoo.
[repeat]
[So far away...
I'm not the one who's so far away...
I'm not the one who's so far away...
I'm not the one who's so far away...

They Can't Take That Away From Me

Ella and Louis


There are many many crazy things
That will keep me loving you
And with your permission
May I list a few

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
No they can't take that away from me

The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off key
The way you haunt my dreams
No they can't take that away from me

We may never never meet again, on that bumpy road to love
But I'll always, always keep the memory of

The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life
No they can't take that away from me

This is the last song I listened to on my car CD player on Tuesday. I had it on repeat. I can't explain why, it moves me to tears. I think it's probably because I can identify not with the specific scenarios presented, but with the general attitude and feelings the song portrays.

THE FRESHMEN - THE VERVE PIPE

When I was young I knew everything
And she a punk who rarely ever took advice
Now i'm guilt stricken, sobbing with my head on the floor
Stop a baby's breath and a shoe full of rice

I can't be held responsible
Cause she was touching her face
I won't be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me
I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise
And we'd never compromise
For the life of me
I cannot believe we'd ever die for these sins
We were merely freshmen

My best friend took a week's vacation to forget her
His girl took a week's worth of valium and slept
Now he's guilt stricken sobbing with his head on the floor
Thinks about her now and how he never really wept he says

I can't be held responsible
Cause she was touching her face
I won't be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me
I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise
And we'd never compromise
For the life of me
I cannot believe we'd ever die for these sins
We were merely freshmen

We try to wash our hands of all of this
We never talk of our lacking relationships
And how we're guilt stricken sobbing with our heads on the floor
We fell through the ice when we tried not to slip, we'd say

I can't be held responsible
Cause she was touching her face
I won't be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me
I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise
And we'd never compromise
For the life of me
I cannot believe we'd ever die for these sins
We were merely freshmen

We were merely freshmen
We were merely freshmen
We were only freshmen

I've had Death Cab for Cutie's Transatlanticism playing almost constantly for the last few days. Here's the song that just ended:

"We Looked Like Giants"

God bless the daylight, the sugary smell of springtime
Remembering when you were mine
In a still suburban town

When every thursday i'd break those mountain passes
And you'd skip your early classes
And we'd learn how our bodies worked.

God damn the black night with all it's foul temptation
I become what i always hated
When i was with you then

We looked like giants in the back of my grey subcompact
Fumbling to make contact
As the others slept inside

And together there
In a shroud of frost, the mountain air
Began to pass from every pane of weathered glass
And i held you closer than anyone would ever get

Do you remember the JAMC?
And reading aloud from magazines
I don't know about you but i swear on my name they could smell it on me
I've never been too good with secrets.
No...

And together there
In a shroud of frost and mountain air
Began to pass through every pane of weathered glass
And i held you closer...

I love Death Cab. Have you listened to Postal Service? They have the same front man, but the 2 or 3 guys that make up the band have never been in the studio together. They send their cuts through the mail and edit them together, thus the name.

I can't seem to get this next song out of my head, so I finally bought the cd. Good stuff.

Howie Day, Collide

The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You're barely waking
And I'm tangled up in you
Yeah

I'm open, you're closed
Where I follow, you'll go
I worry I won't see your face
Light up again

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find
You and I collide

I'm quiet you know
You make a frist impression
I've found I'm scared to know I'm always on your mind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
I somehow find
You and I collide

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to ryhme
Out of the doubt that fills your mind
You finally find
You and I collide

You finally find
You and I collide
You finally find
You and I collide

It's not
What you thought
When you first began it
You got
What you want
Now you can hardly stand it though,
By now you know
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up

You're sure
There's a cure
And you have finally found it
You think
One drink
Will shrink you 'til you're underground
And living down
But it's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up

Prepare a list of what you need
Before you sign away the deed
'Cause it's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up
No, it's not going to stop
'Til you wise up
No, it's not going to stop
So just...give up

Cemetery Gates (The Smiths)

A dreaded sunny day
so I meet you at the cemetery gates
Keats and Yeats are on your side

A dreaded sunny day
so I meet you at the cemetery gates
Keats and Yeats are on your side
while Wilde is on mine

So we go inside and we gravely read the stones
all those people all those lives
where are they now?
with the loves and hates
and passions just like mine
they were born
and then they lived and then they died
seems so unfair
and I want to cry

You say: "ere thrice the sun done salutation to the dawn"
and you claim these words as your own
but I've read well, and I've heard them said
a hundred times, maybe less, maybe more

If you must write prose and poems
the words you use should be your own
don't plagiarise or take "on loan"
there's always someone, somewhere
with a big nose, who knows
and who trips you up and laughs
when you fall
who'll trip you up and laugh
when you fall

You say: "ere long done do does did"
words which could only be your own
and then you then produce the text
from whence was ripped some dizzy whore, 1804

A dreaded sunny day
so let's go where we're happy
and I meet you at the cemetery gates
Oh Keats and Yeats are on your side

A dreaded sunny day
so let's go where we're wanted
and I meet you at the cemetery gates
Keats and Yeats are on your side
but you lose because Wilde is on mine

Great song, William. I love The Smiths. I've got another Buffett song on.

This song sums up my mood lately:

Pacing the Cage
Sunset is an angel weeping
Holding out a bloody sword
No matter how I squint I cannot
Make out what it's pointing toward
Sometimes you feel like you've lived too long
The days drip slowly on the page
And you catch yourself
Pacing the cage

I've proved who I am so many times,
The magnetic strip's worn thin
And each time I was someone else
And everyone was taken in.
Powers chatter in high places
Stir up eddies in the dust of rage
Set me to pacing the cage.

I never knew what you all wanted
So I gave you everything.
All that I could pillage
All the spells that I could sing
It's as if the thing were written
In the constitution of the age
Sooner or later you'll wind up
Pacing the cage

Sometimes the best map will not guide you
You can't see what's round the bend.
Sometimes the road leads through dark places
Sometimes the darkness is your friend.
Today these eyes scan bleached-out land,
For the coming of the outbound stage
Pacing the cage...

The Smiths - "Pretty Girls Make Graves"

Upon the sand, upon the bay
"There is a quick and easy way" you say
Before you illustrate
I'd rather state :
"I'm not the man you think I am
I'm not the man you think I am"

And Sorrow's native son
He will not smile for anyone


And Pretty Girls Make Graves
Oh ...


End of the pier, end of the bay
You tug my arm, and say : "Give in to lust,
Give up to lust, oh heaven knows we'll
Soon be dust ... "


Oh, I'm not the man you think I am
I'm not the man you think I am


And Sorrow's native son
He will not rise for anyone


And Pretty Girls Make Graves
Oh really ?
Oh ...


I could have been wild and I could have
Been free
But Nature played this trick on me


She wants it Now
And she will not wait
But she's too rough
And I'm too delicate


Then, on the sand
Another man, he takes her hand
A smile lights up her stupid face
(and well, it would)


I lost my faith in Womanhood
I lost my faith in Womanhood
I lost my faith ...
Oh ...


Hand in glove ...
The sun shines out of our behinds ...
Oh ...

Radiohead - "Street Spirit"

Rows of houses all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
All these things in all positions
All these things will one day take control
And fade out again and fade out

This machine will will not communicate these thoughts
And the strain I am under
Be a world child form a circle before we all go under
And fade out again and fade out again

Cracked eggs dead birds
Scream as they fight for life
I can feel death can see itís beady eyes
All these things into frution
All these things weíll one day swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out again.

The Doors -- "Peace Frog"

There's blood in the streets, it's up to my ankles
She came
Blood in the streets, it's up to my knee
She came
Blood in the streets in the town of Chicago
She came
Blood on the rise, it's following me
Think about the break of day

She came and then she drove away
Sunlight in her hair

She came
Blood in the streets runs a river of sadness
She came
Blood in the streets it's up to my thigh
She came
Yeah the river runs red down the legs of a city
She came
The women are crying red rivers of weepin'

She came into town and then she drove away
Sunlight in her hair

Indians scattered on dawn's highway bleeding
Ghosts crowd the young child's fragile eggshell mind

Blood in the streets in the town of New Haven
Blood stains the roofs and the palm trees of Venice
Blood in my love in the terrible summer
Bloody red sun of Phantastic L.A.

Blood screams her brain as they chop off her fingers
Blood will be born in the birth of a nation
Blood is the rose of mysterious union

There's blood in the streets, it's up to my ankles
Blood in the streets, it's up to my knee
Blood in the streets in the town of Chicago
Blood on the rise, it's following me

Black and hairy, very small
Now heís up above my head
Hanging by a little thread

Now heís dropped on to the floor
Heading for the bedroom door
Maybe heís as scared as me
Whereís he gone now, I canít see

Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly
Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly

There he is wrapped in a ball
Doesnít seem to move at all
Perhaps heís dead, Iíll just make sure
Pick this book up off the floor

Creepy, crawly
Creepy, crawly
Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly
Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly
Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly

Heís come to a sticky end
Donít think he will ever mend
Never more will he crawl íround
Heís embedded in the ground

Wow, I just heard one I'd had on my MP player that popped up that I hadn't heard in a long while:

Beck - Lost Cause

Your sorry eyes, they cut to the bone.
They make it hard to leave you alone.
Leave you here wearin your wounds
Waving your guns at somebody new.

Baby you're a lost
Baby you're a lost
Baby you're a lost cause.

There's too many people you used to know
They see you coming they see you go.
They know your secrets and you know theirs
This town is crazy, but nobody cares.

Baby you're a lost
Baby you're a lost
Baby you're a lost cause.

I'm tired of fighting
I'm tired of fighting
Fighting for a lost cause

There's a place where you are going
You ain't never been before
There's no one laughing at your back now
No one standing at your door
Is that what you thought love was for?

Baby you're a lost
Baby you're a lost
Baby you're a lost cause

I'm tired of fighting
I'm tired of fighting
Fighting for a lost cause.

Just finished listening to Criminal by Fiona Apple:


I've been a bad bad girl
I've been careless
With a delicate man
And it's a sad sad world
When a girl will break a boy
Just because she can
Don't you tell me to deny it
I've done wrong and
I want to
Suffer for my sins
I've come to you
'Cause I need
Guidance to be true
And I just don't know
Where I can begin
What I need is
A good defense
'Cause I'm feelin'
Like a criminal
And I need
To be redeemed
To the one
I've sinned against
Because he's all
I ever knew of love

Heaven help me
For the way I am
Save me from
These evil deeds
Before I get them done
I know tomorrow brings
The consequence at hand
But I keep livin' this day like
The next will never come

Oh help me but
Don't tell me to deny it
I've got to cleanse myself
Of all these lies till
I'm good enough for him
I've got a lot to lose
And I'm bettin' high
So I'm beggin' you
Before it ends
Just tell me where to begin

What I need
Is a good defense
'Cause I'm feelin'
Like a criminal
And I need
To be redeemed
To the one
I've sinned against
Because he's all
I ever knew of love

Let me know the way
Before there's hell to pay
Give me room to lay
The law and let me go
I've got to make a play
To make my lover stay
So what would an angel say
The devil wants to know

What I need
Is a good defense
'Cause I'm feelin'
Like a criminal
And I need
To be redeemed
To the one
I've sinned against
Because he's all
I ever knew of love

What I need is
A good defense
'Cause I'm feelin'
Like a criminal
And I need
To be redeemed
To the one
I've sinned against

Because he's all
I ever knew of love

One of my absolute favorite songs... The Storm ~ Blackmore's Night


A timeless and forgotten place,
The moon and sun in endless chase
Each in quiet surrender
As the other reigns the skyÖ
The midnight hour begins to laugh
A summer evening's epitaph,
The winds are getting crazy
As the storm begins to riseÖ
Wild were the winds that came
In the thunder and the rain
Nothing ever could contain
The rising of the stormÖ


In the wings of ebony
Darkened waves fill the trees
Wild winds of warning
Echo through the airÖ


Follow the storm I've got to get out of hereÖ
Follow the storm as you take to the skyÖ
Follow the storm now it's all so crystal clear,
Follow the storm as the storm begins to riseÖ
She seems to come from everywhere
Welcome to the dragons lair
Fingers running through your hair
She asks you out to playÖ


In all of nature's sorcery
The most bewitching entity
Hell can have no fury
Like the rising of the stormÖ

Lyin' cheatin' hurtin that's all you seem to do.
Messin' around with everyone in town
Puttin' me down.....
Always the same playin' your game
Drive me insane, trouble is gonna come to you
One of these days and it won't be long
This is all I gotta say to you:

Your Time Is Gonna Come
Your Time Is Gonna Come
Your Time Is Gonna Come
Your Time Is Gonna Come

Made up my mind to break you this time,
Won't be so fine, it's my turn to....
Do want you want, I won't take the brunt.
It's fadin' away, can't feel you anymore.
Don't care what you say 'cause I'm goin' away to stay,
Gonna make you pay for that great big hole in my heart.
People talkin' all around,
Watch out, no longer
Is the joke gonna be on my heart.
You been bad to me...,
But it's coming back home to you.

Your Time is Gonna Come 4x

Here's one of mine, and I don't mean to be morbid, but it reminds me of my son. Vincent, by Don McLean


Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and gray
Look out on a summer day
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul

Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and daffodils
Catch the breeze, and winter chills
And colors on the snow linen land

What you tried
To say to me
And how you suffered for
Your sanity

And how you tried to set them free
They could not listen
They did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now

And when no hope was left inside
On that starry, starry night
You took your life, as lovers often do
I coulda told you, Vincent
This world was never meant for one

As beautiful as you

That is another of my -old- favorites. I don't think your association with it is morbid at all. I always thought of my father whenever I heard Living Years, by Mike and the Mechanics. Needless to say, the part I bolded chokes me up every time. But this song is so true of our relationship.

Every generation
Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations
Come beating on your door

I know that I'm a prisoner
To all my Father held so dear
I know that I'm a hostage
To all his hopes and fears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

Crumpled bits of paper
Filled with imperfect thought
Stilted conversations
I'm afraid that's all we've got

You say you just don't see it
He says it's perfect sense
You just can't get agreement
In this present tense
We all talk a different language
Talking in defence

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye

So we open up a quarrel
Between the present and the past
We only sacrifice the future
It's the bitterness that lasts

So Don't yield to the fortunes
You sometimes see as fate
It may have a new perspective
On a different day
And if you don't give up, and don't give in
You may just be O.K.

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye

I wasn't there that morning
When my Father passed away
I didn't get to tell him
All the things I had to say

I think I caught his spirit
Later that same year
I'm sure I heard his echo
In my baby's new born tears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye

God, I hadn't thought about that song in years! Reading the lyrics just now gave me goosebumps. I have always loved it, cause it's so damned true. Here's one more of my favorites, and I'm going to bed. Nite music lovers.

Good Time Charlie

Everybody's gone away
Said they're movin to L.A.
There's not a soul I know around
Everybody's leavin' town

Some caught a freight, some caught a plane
Found the sunshine in the rain
They said this town's will waste their time
I guess they're right, it's wasting mine

Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Good time Charlie's got the blues
Good time Charlie's got the blues

You know my heart keeps tellin' me
You're not a kid at thirty-three
Play around you'll lose your wife
You play it too long you'll lose your life

Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Good time Charlie's got the blues
Good time Charlie's got the blues

Forget Her
by Jeff Buckley

While this town is busy sleeping
All the noise has died away
I walk the streets to stop my weeping
But she'll never change her ways

Don't fool yourself
She was heartache from the moment that you met her
My heart feels so still
As i try to find the will to forget her somehow
Oh i think i've forgotten her now

Her love is a rose dead and dying
Dropping her petals and man i know
All full of wine the world before her
But sober with no place to go

Don't fool yourself
She was heartache from the moment that you met her
My heart is frozen still
As i try to find the will to forget her somehow
She's somewhere out there now

Oh my tears fall down as i tried to forget
That her love was a joke from the day that we met
All of the words,
all of her men
All of my pain when i think back to when
I remember her hair as it shone in the sun
It was there on the bed when i knew what she'd done
Tell yourself over and over you won't ever need her again

Don't fool yourself
She was heartache from the moment that you met her
Oh my heart is frozen still
As i try to find the will to forget her somehow
She's out there somewhere now

Oh
She was heartache from the day that i first met her
My heart is frozen still
As i try to find the will to forget you somehow
'Cause i know you're somewhere out there right now

In Your Atmosphere
by John Mayer

I don't think I'm gonna go to LA anymore
I don't think I'm gonna go to LA anymore
I don't know what it's like to blame you
Nothing's true anymore
So, I don't think I'm gonna go to LA anymore

I don't think I'm gonna go to LA anymore
I'm not sure that I really ever could
Hold on to a hotel key
in your bedroom neighborhood
With me sleep walking in Hollywood

I'm gonna steer clear
I'd burn up in your atmosphere
I'm gonna steer clear
'Cause I'd die if I saw you
I'd die if I didn't see you there
So, I don't think I'm gonna go to LA anymore

I dont think I'm gonna go to LA anymore
I'd get lost on the boulevard at night
Without your voice to tell me
"I love you, take a right"
The ten and the two is a lonely sight

I'm gonna steer clear
I'd burn up in your atmosphere
I'm gonna steer clear
'Cause I'd die if I saw you
I'd die if I didn't see you

I'm gonna steer clear
Burn up in your atmosphere
I'm gonna steer clear
'Cause I'd die if I saw you
I'd die if I didn't see you there,

See you there

I think I'm gonna stay gonna stay,
gonna stay in the grey,
think i'm gonna stay

All the street lights say
nevermind nevermind
All the canyon lines say
nevermind
Sunset says we see this all the time,
nevermind
nevermind

[QUOTE=brokenfingers]Wow, I just heard one I'd had on my MP player that popped up that I hadn't heard in a long while:

Beck - Lost Cause

Your sorry eyes, they cut through bone.
They make it hard to leave you alone.
Leave you here wearin your wounds
Waving your guns at somebody new.

Baby you're a lost
Baby you're a lost
Baby you're a lost cause.

NO fair, Brokenfingers stole er, posted first, the song I was gonna share.:cry:

Ok, I'll a couple of songs I listened to earlier..



Both By Bush:



Solutions

The devil you know is back here again devil is stoned - he's making friends
We move we break we're sun we're shade - you come you go we're fast we're slow
Blood on your dress hole in your sky - blanket has gone to permanent night
We're glued we break we're all dilate we please we pain...again

She checks her head - she's in the smoke
Figuring which way to turn now she's got the rope, oh
We need solutions - a brain megaphone
We need solutions - a brain megaphone

You've broken your shoes you look like winter - you're all in a bruise
Handful of splinters we brood we flake we torch we take
Rebound rebirth cocooned from hurt

I could be wrong I could be right
But do you think we'll make it out of here alive

We need solutions a brain megaphone
We need solutions we need to call home
A brain megaphone

She makes me see God
I'm out on a line
Any way the pleasure comes

we need solutions a brain megaphone
a brain megaphone
we got to call home...



The People That We Love

Speed kills coming down the mountain
Speed kills coming down the street
Speed kills with presence of mind and
Speed kills if you know what I mean

Got to feel - woke up inside again
Got to feel less broke more fixed
Got to feel when I got outside myself
Got to feel when I touched your lips

The things we do to the people that we love
The way we break if there's something we can't take
Destroy the world that we took so long to make

We expect her gone for some time
I wish her safe from harm
To find yourself in a foreign land
Another refugee outsider refugee

How's it feel she's coming up roses
How's it feel she's coming up sweet
How's it feel when it's all in spite of you
How's it feel when she's out of your reach

The things we do to the people that we love
The way we break if there's something in the way
Destroy the world that we took so long to make
We expect her gone for some time - I wish her safe from harm
To find yourself in a foreign land
Another refugee outsider refugee What happened to you

Blower's Daughter Part II-Damien Rice

This has got to die,
This has got to stop,
This has got to lie down,
Someone else on top.

You can keep me pinned,
It's easier to tease,
But you can't paint an elephant,
Quite as good as she.

And she may cry like a baby,
And she may drive me crazy
Cause I'm lately lonely.

So, why'd you have to lie,
I take it I'm your crutch,
The pillow in your pillowcase,
Is easier to touch.

And when you think you've sinned,
You fall upon your knees,
Living in your picture,
Still forget about the breeze.

And she may rise,
If I sing you down,
And she may wisely,
Cling to the ground.
Cause I'm lately horny.

So why would would she take me only

This has got to die,
This has got to stop,
This has got to lie down,
Someone else on top.

"Pepper"
Butthole Surfers

Marky got with Sharon
And Sharon got Sharice
She was sharing Sharon's outlook
On the topic of disease
Mikey had a facial scar
And Bobby was a racist
They were all in love with dyin'
They were doing it in Texas
Tommy played piano
Like a kid out in the rain
Then he lost his leg in Dallas
He was dancing with a train
They were all in love with dyin'
They were drinking from a fountain
That was pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain
I don't mind the sun sometimes
The images it shows
I can taste you on my lips
And smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary
And softly spoken lies
You never know just how you look
Through other people's eyes
Some will die in hot pursuit
In fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit
While sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life
And drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain

[Chorus]

Another Mikey took a knife
While arguing in traffic
Flipper died a natural death
He caught a nasty virus
Then there was the ever-present
Football player rapist
They were all in love with dyin'
They were doing it in Texas
Polly caught a bullet
But it only hit his leg
Well it should have been a better shot
And got him in the head
They were all in love with dyin'
They were drinking from a fountain
That was pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain

[Chorus]

Fear (Luna Sol remix)
Sarah McLachlan rem. Rabbit In The Moon

[unintelligible]

Morning smiles
Like the face of a newborn child
Innocent unknowing

Winterís end
Promises of a long lost friend
Speaks to me of comfort

But I fear
I have nothing to give
I have so much to lose
Here in this lonely place
Tangled up in our embrace
Thereís nothing Iíd like better
Than to fall

But I fear
I have nothing to give
But I fear
I have so much to lose

Wind in time
Rapes the flower trembling on the vine
Nothing yields to shelter it
From above
They say temptation will destroy our love
The never ending hunger

But I fear
I have nothing to give
I have so much to lose
Here in this lonely place
Tangled up in our embrace
Thereís nothing Iíd like better
Than to fall

But I fear
I have nothing to give
But I fear
I have so much to lose
But I fear
I have nothing to give
But I fear
We have so much to lose

[unintelligible]

I... I... I...


Note: Anyone who like McLachlan or just this song really should try the Rabbit In The Moon version. Imagine taking the trippy, haunting sound from Fear and mainlining it Ė that's how this one is.

Louisiana Saturday Night

Well you get down the fiddle and you get down the bow
Kick off your shoes and you throw em in the flo'
Dance in the kitchen till the mornin light
Louisiana Saturday night

Waitin in the front yard settin on a log
Single shot rifle and a one eyed dog
Yonder come the kinfolk in the moonlight
Louisiana Saturday night

Well you get down the fiddle and you get down the bow
Kick off your shoes and you throw em in the flo'
Dance in the kitchen till the mornin light
Louisiana Saturday night

My brother Bill an' my other brother Jack
Headed for the beer an' a possum in a sack
Fifteen kids in the front porch light
Louisiana Saturday night

When the kinfolk leave an' the kids get fed
Me an' my woman gonna head off to bed
Have a little fun when we turn out the light
Louisiana Saturday night

Well you get down the fiddle and you get down the bow
Kick off your shoes and you throw em in the flo'
Dance in the kitchen till the mornin light

Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)
------The Temptations

Each day through my window I watch her as she passes by.
I say to myself, "You're such a lucky guy."
To have a girl like her
is truly a dream come true.
Out of all of the fellas in the world
she belongs to you...

But it was just my imagination
running away with me.
It was just my imagination
running away with me...

Ooh-hoo-hoo-hooh
Soon we'll be married..
and raise a family.
In a cozy, little home out in the country
with two children, maybe three.
I tell you, I can visualize it all.
This couldn't be a dream for too real it all seems.

But it was just my imagination -- once again --
running away with me.
I tell you it was just my imagination
running away with me...

Every night, on my knees I pray,
"Dear Lord, hear my plea...
don't ever let another take her love from me
or I will surely die.."
Ooh, her love is heavenly;
when her arms enfold me,
I hear a tender rhapsody...
but in reality, she doesn't even know me

Just my imagination -- once again --
running away with me.
Tell you it was just my imagination
running away with me.
I never met her, but I can't forget her.
Just my imagination..
-- ooh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah --
running away with me

Frankly, Mr. Shankly - The Smiths

Frankly, Mr. Shankly, this position I've held
It pays my way, and it corrodes my soul
I want to leave, you will not miss me
I want to go down in musical history

Frankly, Mr. Shankly, I'm a sickening wreck
I've got the 21st century breathing down my neck
I must move fast, you understand me
I want to go down in celluloid history, Mr. Shankly

Fame, Fame, fatal Fame
It can play hideous tricks on the brain
But still I'd rather be Famous
Than righteous or holy, any day
Any day, any day

But sometimes I'd feel more fulfilled
Making Christmas cards with the mentally ill
I want to live and I want to Love
I want to catch something that I might be ashamed of

Frankly, Mr. Shankly, this position I've held
It pays my way and it corrodes my soul
Oh, I didn't realise that you wrote poetry
I didn't realise you wrote such bloody awful poetry, Mr. Shankly

Frankly, Mr. Shankly, since you ask
You are a flatulent pain in the arse
I do not mean to be so rude
Still, I must speak frankly, Mr. Shankly,

Just a small town girl on a Saturday night
Looking for the fight of her life in the real time world
No one sees her at all they all say she's crazy.

Locking rhythm to the beat of her heart
Changing movement into light
She had danced into the danger zone
When the dancer becomes the dance.

It can cut you like a knife if the fight becomes the fire
On the wire between will and what will be.

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor (I sure know)
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor (I sure know)
And she's dancing like she's never danced before.

She's a maniac, maniac at the show, and she's dancing like she's never danced before

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor (I sure know)
And she's dancing like she's never danced before.

On the ice blue line of insanity is a place most never see
It's a hard won place of mystery, touch it but can't hold it
You work all your life, for that moment in time
It could come or pass you by it's a push shove world
But there's always a chance if the hunger stays the night.

There's a cold kinetic heat
Struggling stretching for the peak
Never stopping with her head against the wind.

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor (I sure know)
And she's dancing like she's never danced before.

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor (I sure know)
And she's dancing like she's never danced before.

It can cut you like a knife if the fight becomes the fire
On the wire between will and what will be

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor (I sure know)
And she's dancing like she's never danced before.

Dreams

Written by Stevie Nicks.
{Performed by Fleetwood Mac}


Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down
Itís only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness
Like a heartbeat.. drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost...
And what you had...
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when itís raining
Players only love you when theyíre playing
Say... women... they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean... youíll know

Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself
Itís only me
Who wants to wrap around your dreams and...
Have you any dreams youíd like to sell?
Dreams of loneliness...
Like a heartbeat... drives you mad...
In the stillness of remembering what you had...
And what you lost...
And what you had...
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when itís raining
Players only love you when theyíre playing
Say... women... they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean... youíll know

Kill the Poor
(Dead Kennedys)

Efficiency and progress is ours once more
Now that we have the Neutron bomb
It's nice and quick and clean and gets things done
Away with excess enemy
But no less value to property
No sense in war but perfect sense at home:

The sun beams down on a brand new day
No more welfare tax to pay
Unsightly slums gone up in flashing light
Jobless millions whisked away
At last we have more room to play
All systems go to kill the poor tonight

Gonna
Kill kill kill kill Kill the poor:Tonight

Behold the sparkle of champagne
The crime rate's gone
Feel free again
O' life's a dream with you, Miss Lily White
Jane Fonda on the screen today
Convinced the liberals it's okay
So let's get dressed and dance away the night

While they:
Kill kill kill kill Kill the poor:Tonight

I've Seen it All
(Bjork, from the film "Dancer in the Dark")

I've seen it all, I have seen the trees,
I've seen the willow leaves dancing in the breeze
I've seen a man killed by his best friend,
And lives that were over before they were spent.
I've seen what I was - I know what I'll be
I've seen it all - there is no more to see!

You haven't seen elephants, kings or Peru!
I'm happy to say I had better to do
What about China? Have you seen the Great Wall?
All walls are great, if the roof doesn't fall!

And the man you will marry?
The home you will share?
To be honest, I really don't care...

You've never been to Niagara Falls?
I have seen water, its water, that's all...
The Eiffel Tower, the Empire State?
My pulse was as high on my very first date!
Your grandson's hand as he plays with your hair?
To be honest, I really don't care...

I've seen it all, I've seen the dark
I've seen the brightness in one little spark.
I've seen what I chose and I've seen what I need,
And that is enough, to want more would be greed.
I've seen what I was and I know what I'll be
I've seen it all - there is no more to see!

You've seen it all and all you have seen
You can always review on your own little screen
The light and the dark, the big and the small
Just keep in mind - you need no more at all
You've seen what you were and know what you'll be
You've seen it all - there is no more to see!

Oh....this is a fun thread....my 2 year old son LOVES this song and was singing along with it! :)

What's a Guy Gotta Do
by Joe Nichols
album: Revelation (2004)
What's a guy gotta do to get a girl in this town
Don't wanna be alone when the sun goes down
Just a sweet little somethin to put my arms around
What's a guy gotta do to get a girl in this town.

Well, ask anybody I'm a pretty good guy
And the looks decent wagon didn't pass me by
There ain't nothin in my past that I'm tryin hard to hide
And I don't understand why I gotta wonder why.

What's a guy gotta do to get a girl in this town
Don't wanna be alone when the sun goes down
Just a sweet little somethin to put my arms around
What's a guy gotta do to get a girl in this town.

Cruise all around the right parking lots
little time gets killed alotta bull gets shot
One who'll think I'm kinda cute and laugh at every joke I got
when I get to thinkin maybe she's athinkin maybe not.

What's a guy gotta do to get a girl in this town
Don't wanna be alone when the sun goes down
Just a sweet little somethin to put my arms around
What's a guy gotta do to get a girl in this town.

Had an old man tell me "Boy if you were smart
You'd hit the produce isle at the Super Walmart"
So I bumped into a pretty girl's shopping cart
But all I did was break her eggs and bruise her artichoke hearts.

What's a guy gotta do to get a girl in this town
Don't wanna be alone when the sun goes down
Just a sweet little somethin to put my arms around
What's a guy gotta do to get a girl in this town.

What's a guy gotta do to get a girl in this town...

Merry Plowboy
(Traditional Irish.....my recorded version is by the Wolfe Tones)

Well I am a merry plowboy
and I plow the fields all day
till a sudden thought came to my mind
that I should roam away
I have always hated slavery
since the day that I was born
so I'm off to join the IRA
and I'm off tomorrow morn

Chorus:
And we're all off to Dublin
in the green in the green
where the helmets glisten in the sun
where the bayonets flash
the rifles crash
to the echo of a Thompson gun

I'll leave behind my pick and spade
I'll leave behind my plow
and I'll leave behind my old gray mare
for no more I'll need her now
I will take my short revolver
and my bandolier of lead
and live or die I can but try
to avenge my country's dead

Chorus

I will leave behind my Mary
she's the girl I do adore
and I'll wonder if she'll think of me
when she hears the cannons roar
and when the war is over
and dear old Ireland's free
I'll take her to the church to wed
and a rebel's wife she'll be

Chorus

Now some men fight for silver
and some men fight for gold
but the IRA is fighting for
the land that the Saxon's stole

Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?


Whose bed have your boots been under?
Whose bed have your boots been under?
And Whose heart did you steal I wonder?
This time did it feel like thunder, baby?
Whose bed have your boots been under?
Don't look so lonely
Don't act so blue
I know I'm not the only
Girl you run to
I know about Lolita
Your little Spanish flame
I've seen you around with Rita
The redhead down the lane

Chorus:

Whose bed have your boots been under?
And Whose heart did you steal I wonder?
This time did it feel like thunder, baby?
And who did you run to?
And whose lips have you been kissin'?
And whose ear did you make a wish in?
Is she the one that you've been missin', baby?
Well whose bed have your boots been under?
I heard you've been sneakin'
Around with Jill
And what about that weekend
With Beverly Hill
And I've seen you walkin'
With long legs Louise
And you weren't just talkin'
Last night with Denise

(Repeat Chorus)

Come on boots....
So next time you're lonely
Don't call on me
Try the operator
Maybe she'll be free

(Repeat Chorus)

In the car, driving home from an early "mother's day" dinner with my mom.

I'm about to listen to "Love Is A Battlefield". Seem to be in a Pat mood.


Love is a Battlefield - Pat Benatar



CHORUS:
We are young, heartache to heartache we stand
No promises, no demands
Love is a battlefield
We are strong, no one can tell us we're wrong
Searchin' our hearts for so long
All of us knowing, love is a battlefield

You're makin' me go, then makin' me stay
Why do you hurt me so bad
It would help me to know, do I stand in your way
Or am I the best thing you've had
Believe me, believe me, I can't tell you why
But I'm trapped by your love and I'm chained to your side

CHORUS

When I'm losing control, will you turn me away
Or touch me deep inside
And if all this gets old, will it still feel the same
There's no way this will die
But if we get much closer I could lose control
And if your heart surrenders you'll need me to hold

CHORUS CHORUS

Wild Horses
by the Rolling Stones

Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady you know who I am
You know I can't let you slide through my hands

Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn't drag me away

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn't drag me away

I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I don't have much time
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Let's do some living after we die

Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them some day

Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them some day

Away from me

Now I don't know
Where my baby can be
They took her from me
They took her from me
I don't know
Where my baby can be
They took her from me
They took her from me

On a rattlesnake speedway in the Utah desert
I pick up my money and head back into town
Driving cross the Waynesboro line
I got the radio on and Iím just killing time
Working all day in my daddyís garage
Driving all night, chasing some mirage
Pretty soon little girl Iím gonna take charge

The dogs on main street howl cause they understand
If I could take one moment into my hands
Mister, I ainít a boy - no, Iím a man,
And I believe in a Promised Land

Iíve done my best to live the right way
I get up every morning and go to work each day
But your eyes go blind and your blood runs cold
Sometimes I feel so weak I just want to explode
Explode and tear this town apart
Take a knife and cut this pain from my heart
Find somebody itching for something to start

The dogs on main street howl cause they understand
If I could take one moment into my hands
Mister, I ainít a boy - no, Iím a man,
And I believe in a Promised Land

Thereís a dark cloud rising from the desert floor
I packed my bags and Iím heading straight into the storm
Gonna be a twister to blow everything down
That ainít got the faith to stand itís ground
Blow away the dreams that tear you apart
Blow away the dreams that break your heart
Blow away the lies that leave you nothing but lost and brokenhearted

The dogs on main street howl cause they understand
If I could take one moment into my hands
Mister, I ainít a boy - no, Iím a man,
And I believe in a Promised Land

I believe in a Promised LandÖ

Alright - another one:


Lights out tonight
Trouble in the heartland
Got a head on collision
Smashin'in my guts, man
I'm caught in a cross fire
That I don't understand
I don't give a damn
for the same old played out scenes
I don't give a damn
for just the in betweens
Honey, I want the heart, I want the soul
I want control right now

Talk about a dream
try to make it real
You wake up in the night
with a fear so real
Spend your life waiting
for a moment that just don't come
Well, don't waste your time waiting

Badlands, you gotta live it everyday,
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price you've gotta pay
We'll keep pushin' till it's understood
and these badlands start treating us good

Workin' in the fields
til you get your back burned
Workin' 'neath the wheel
till you get your facts learned
Baby, I got my facts
learned real good right now

Poor man wanna be rich,
rich man wanna be king,
And a king ain't satisfied,
till he rules everything
I wanna go out tonight,
I wanna find out what I got

I believe in the love that you gave me
I believe in the hope that can save me
I believe in the faith
and I pray, that someday it may raise me,
Above these badlands

Badlands, you gotta live it everyday
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price you've gotta pay
We'll keep pushin' till it's understood
and these badlands start treating us good

For the ones who had a notion,
A notion deep inside,
That it ain't no sin to be glad you're alive
I wanna find one face that ain't looking through me
I wanna find one place,
I wanna spit in the face of these badlands

Badlands, you gotta live it everyday
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price you've gotta pay
We'll keep pushin' till it's understood
and these badlands start treating us good.

"Dear Mama"

You are appreciated

[Verse One: 2Pac]

When I was young me and my mama had beef
Seventeen years old kicked out on the streets
Though back at the time, I never thought I'd see her face
Ain't a woman alive that could take my mama's place
Suspended from school; and scared to go home, I was a fool
with the big boys, breakin all the rules
I shed tears with my baby sister
Over the years we was poorer than the other little kids
And even though we had different daddy's, the same drama
When things went wrong we'd blame mama
I reminice on the stress I caused, it was hell
Huggin on my mama from a jail cell
And who'd think in elementary?
Heeey! I see the penitentiary, one day
And runnin from the police, that's right
Mama catch me, put a whoopin to my backside
And even as a crack fiend, mama
You always was a black queen, mama
I finally understand
for a woman it ain't easy tryin to raise a man
You always was committed
A poor single mother on welfare, tell me how ya did it
There's no way I can pay you back
But the plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated

[Chorus: Reggie Green & "Sweet Franklin" w/ 2Pac]

Lady...
Don't cha know we love ya? Sweet lady
Dear mama
Place no one above ya, sweet lady
You are appreciated
Don't cha know we love ya?

[second and third chorus, "And dear mama" instead of "Dear mama"]

[Verse Two: 2Pac]

Now ain't nobody tell us it was fair
No love from my daddy cause the coward wasn't there
He passed away and I didn't cry, cause my anger
wouldn't let me feel for a stranger
They say I'm wrong and I'm heartless, but all along
I was lookin for a father he was gone
I hung around with the Thugs, and even though they sold drugs
They showed a young brother love
I moved out and started really hangin
I needed money of my own so I started slangin
I ain't guilty cause, even though I sell rocks
It feels good puttin money in your mailbox
I love payin rent when the rent's due
I hope ya got the diamond necklace that I sent to you
Cause when I was low you was there for me
And never left me alone because you cared for me
And I could see you comin home after work late
You're in the kitchen tryin to fix us a hot plate
Ya just workin with the scraps you was given
And mama made miracles every Thanksgivin
But now the road got rough, you're alone
You're tryin to raise two bad kids on your own
And there's no way I can pay you back
But my plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated

[Chorus]

[Verse Three: 2Pac]

Pour out some liquor and I reminsce, cause through the drama
I can always depend on my mama
And when it seems that I'm hopeless
You say the words that can get me back in focus
When I was sick as a little kid
To keep me happy there's no limit to the things you did
And all my childhood memories
Are full of all the sweet things you did for me
And even though I act craaazy
I gotta thank the Lord that you made me
There are no words that can express how I feel
You never kept a secret, always stayed real
And I appreciate, how you raised me
And all the extra love that you gave me
I wish I could take the pain away
If you can make it through the night there's a brighter day
Everything will be alright if ya hold on
It's a struggle everyday, gotta roll on
And there's no way I can pay you back
But my plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated

[Chorus]

Sweet lady
And dear mama

Dear mama

Hey, hey, mama, said the way you move
Gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove.
Oh, oh, child, way you shake that thing
Gonna make you burn, gonna make you sting.
Hey, hey, baby, when you walk that way
Watch your honey drip, canít keep away.

*ah yeah, ah yeah, ah, ah, ah., ah yeah, ah yeah, ah, ah, ah.

I gotta roll, canít stand still,
Got a flame in my heart, canít get my fill,
Eyes that shine burning red,
Dreams of you all thru my head.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.

Hey, baby, oh, baby, pretty baby,
Tell me what you do me now.
(repeat)

Didnít take too long ífore I found out
What people mean my down and out.
Spent my money, took my car,
Started telliní her friends she wants to be a star.
I donít know but I been told
A big legged woman ainít got no soul.

* chorus

All I ask for when I pray,
Steady rolliní woman gonna come my way.
Need a woman gonna hold my hand
And tell me no lies, make me a happy man.

Some of them were dreamers
Some of them were fools
They were making plans and thinking of the future
With the energy of the innocent
They were gathering the tools
They would need to make their journey back to nature
While the sand slipped through the opening
And their hands reached for the golden ring
In their hearts they turned to each other's hearts for refuge
In the troubled years that came
Before the deluge

Some of them knew pleasure
Some of them knew pain
And for some of them it was only the moment that mattered
And on the brave and crazy wings of youth
They went flying around in the rain
And their feathers, once so fine, grew torn and tattered
And in the end they traded their tired wings
For the resignation that living brings
And exchanged love's bright and fragile glow
For the glitter and the rouge
And in a moment they were swept
Before the deluge

Now let the music keep our spirits high
Let the buildings keep our children dry
Let creation reveal its secrets by and by
By and by
When the light that's lost within us
Reaches the sky

Some of them were angry
At the way the Earth was abused
By the men who'd learned how to forge her beauty into power
And they struggled to protect her from them
Only to be confused
By the magnitude of the fury
In the final hour
And when the sand was gone and the time arrived
In the naked dawn only a few survived
And in an attempt to understand the thing
So simple and so huge
Believed that they were meant to live
After the deluge

Now let the music keep our spirits high
Let the buildings keep our children dry
Let creation reveal its secrets by and by
By and by
When the light that's lost within us
Reaches the sky

Something Stupid -Frank Sinatra

I know I stand in line
Until you think you have the time
To spend an evening with me
And if we go someplace to dance
I know that there's a chance
You won't be leaving with me

Then afterwards we drop into a quiet little place
And have a drink or two
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like I love you

I can see it in your eyes
That you despise the same old lines
You heard the night before
And though it's just a line to you
For me it's true
And never seemed so right before

I practice every day to find some clever
lines to say
To make the meaning come through
But then I think I'll wait until the evening
gets late
And I'm alone with you

The time is right
Your perfume fills my head
The stars get red
And oh the night's so blue
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like I love you
I love you...

This is my son's and my special song that I've always played for him ever since he was little. I've even gotten a butterfly tattoo on my back as sort of a dedication to my son.

Butterfly by Lenny Kravitz

You are the most beautiful thing
I've ever seen
You shine just like sunlight rays
On a winter snow
I just had to tell you so

Your eyes sparkle as the stars
Like the moon they glow
Your smile could light the world on fire
Or did you know?

Your mind's full of everything
That I want to know
I just had to let you know
I just had to tell you so
You're my butterfly
Fly high
Fly fly fly
Fly high...

Never know how much I love you,
Never know how much I care.
When you put your arms around me,
I get a fever that's so hard to bear.

You give me fever,
When you kiss me,
Fever when you hold me tight.
Fever!
In the morning,
Fever all through the night.

Sun lights up the daytime
And moon lights up the night.
I light up when you call my name
And you know I'm gonna treat you right

You give me fever
When you kiss me,
Fever when you hold me tight.
Fever!
In the morning,
And fever all through the night

Everybody's got the fever
That is something you all know
Fever isn't such a new thing
Fever started long ago

Romeo loved Juliette
Juliette she felt the same
When he put his arms around her
He said, "Julie Baby, you're my flame
Thou giveth fever
When we kisseth
Fever with thy flaming youth
Fever!
I'm afire,
Fever, yea I burn forsooth."

Cap'in Smith and Pocahontas
Had a very mad affair
When her daddy tried to kill him
She said, "Daddy, oh don't you dare!
He gives me fever
With his kisses
Fever when he holds me tight
Fever!
I'm his missus,
So daddy won't you treat him right?"

Now you've listened to my story,
Here's the point that I have made:
Chicks were born to give you fever,
Be it Fahrenheit or Centigrade

They give you fever
When you kiss them
Fever if you live and learn
Fever! 'til you sizzle
What a lovely way to burn

What a lovely way to burn...

Come on baby, finish what ya started
That ain't no way to treat the broken hearted
If you wanna see other guys
Baby, I could let it slide
You wanna lover, you want a friend
Mama, I can be both of them
I got the tools to satisfy
Just walk away, if I fall shy at all
Come on baby, finish what you started
I'm incomplete
That ain't no way to treat the broken hearted
I need some sympathy
I like to take each step, one by one
Right on time, you will arrive
By keepin' the dream alive
It's alive and it's kicking
Inside of me
So come on baby, please
Come on baby, finish what you started
I'm incomplete
That ain't no way to treat the broken hearted
Come on and finish me
Come on baby, finish what you started
That ain't no way to treat the broken hearted
Come on baby, finish what you started
That ain't no way to treat the broken hearted
Baby, come on
Baby, come on

I could sit and stare at you for hours
Plotting deperately for some way to bring you around
Acting actively seditious if I were found
A little like a bomber inside Parliament
Planting wishes in the basement underground
Lost and dated in a top hat and trenchcoat now
Always fated to be there when the gate comes down

That fire is me, that effigy
It shows you take what you can get
and hope the suckers take the blame
And I can see that you would agree
by the size of the crowd that's gathered for me here
on Guy Fawkes Day

I know every inch of you it's tragic
I've walked the distance from your lips to that uncrossed line
mapping out all of the reasons you should be mine
A little like a rifleman behind the fence
No one knowing it's my bullet that takes you down
A quick re-program as they're rushing me out of town
No way to prove that it was me when the hit comes down

That fire is me, that effigy
It shows you take what you can get
and hope the suckers take the blame
And I can see that you would agree
by the size of the crowd that's gathered for me here
on Guy Fawkes Day

Do you remember November?
Gunpowder, treason, and plot
I know of no reason why I should ever be forgot

I am just a bomber inside Parliament
Laying gunpowder and throwing the matches high
I know it's treason but I'll never apologize
Plotting one more time to bring your breached walls down

That fire is me, that effigy
See the size of the crowd that's gathered for me here
on Guy Fawkes Day
I'm all alone so blame it only on me
Guy Fawkes Day

And its not just Metal, but BAD Metal! :ROFL:

(Spoken)
Why don't you, sit right back,
and I, I may tell you, a tale.
A tale of three, little pigs,
and a BIG, BAD, WOLFFF.

Well the first little piggy, well he was kinda hick.
He spent most of his days, just a dreamin of the city.
And then one day, he bought a guitar.
He moved to Hollywood, to become a star.
But, living on the farm, he knew nothing of the city.
Built his house out of straw, what a pity.
And then one day, jammin on some chords,
along came the wolf, knocking on his door.

(Chorus)
Little Pig, Little Pig, let me in.
NOT BY THE HAIR OF MY CHINNY, CHIN, CHIN!!
Little Pig, Little Pig, let me in.
NOT BY THE HAIR OF MY CHINNY, CHIN, CHIN!!
Well I'm huffin, I'm puffin, I'll blow your house in.
Huffin, puffin, blow your house in.
Huffin, puffin, blow your house in.
Huffin and a puffin and I'll blow your house in!!!

Well the second little piggy, well he was kinda stoked.
He spent most of his day just in ganja smokin.
Huffin and a puffin down on Venice Beach.
Getting paid money for religious speech.
He built his shelter from what he garbage picked.
Mostly made up of old cans and sticks.
Then one day he was cranking out Bob Marley,
and along came the Wolf on his big bad Harley.

(Chorus)

Well the third little piggy, the grade A student.
His daddy was a rock star, named Pig Nugent.
Earned his Masters Degree, from Harvard College.
Built his house from his architect knowledge.
A tri-level mansion, Hollywood Hills.
Daddy's rock stardom, paid for the bills.
And then one day came the old house smasher
the BIG BAD WOLF THE LITTLE PIGGY SLASHER.

(Chorus)

Well the big bad Wolf,
well he huffed, and he puffed, all that he could.
And low and behold the little piggy's house stood.
"IT'S MADE OUT OF CONCRETE!" the little piggy shouted.
The wolf just frowned, as he pouted.
So they called nine-eleven, like any piggy would.
The sent out RAMBO, just as fast, as they could.

(Rambo)
"YO, WOLF-FACE, I'M YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE, YOUR *** IS MINE!!!"

Well the wolf fell dead as you can plainly see.
So thats to end the story, for you and me.
If you still give a listen, you just may, here a big wolf or little piggy say.

(Chorus)

"And the moral of the story is, ' A band with no talent can easily amuse
idiots, with a stupid, puppet show."

Long ago
Just like the hearse you died to get in again
We are so far from you

Burning on just like a match you strike to incinerate
The lives of everyone you knew
And what's the worst to take, from every heart you break (heart you break)
And like a blade you sting
Well I've been holding on tonight

[Chorus]
What's the worst that I could say?
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

Came a time
When every star fall brought you to tears again
We are the very hurt you sold
And what's the worst you take, from every heart you break
And like a blade you sting
Well I've been holding on tonight

[Chorus]
What's the worst that I could say?
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

Well if you carry on this way
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long not goodnight

Can you hear me?
Are you near me?
Can we pretend
To leave, and then,
we'll meet again,
When both our cars collide?

[Chorus]
What's the worst that I could say?
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

Well if you carry on this way
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

Three Little Pigs ~ Green JellyI used to play that song back when I was a DJ. It's one of the songs that was fun at the time, but I'd rather not ever hear it again. I think I still have the cassette single out in the garage somewhere.

Here is what I just listened to: Billy Joel, And So It Goes.

In every heart there is a room
A sanctuary safe and strong
To heal the wounds from lovers past
Until a new one comes along

I spoke to you in cautious tones
You answered me with no pretense
And still I feel I said too much
My silence is my self defense

And every time I've held a rose
It seems I only felt the thorns
And so it goes, and so it goes
And so will you soon I suppose

But if my silence made you leave
Then that would be my worst mistake
So I will share this room with you
And you can have this heart to break

And this is why my eyes are closed
It's just as well for all I've seen
And so it goes, and so it goes
And you're the only one who knows

So I would choose to be with you
That's if the choice were mine to make
But you can make decisions too
And you can have this heart to break

And so it goes, and so it goes
And you're the only one who knows.

-----

I think what impressed me about that song so much (aside from it putting me into a pretty sad state) was the day I opened the insert to read the lyrics and realized that it was written in perfect meter.

Can't Find My Way Home
(Blind Faith)

Come down off your throne
And leave your body alone
Somebody must change

You are the reason
I've been waiting so long
Somebody holds the key

But I'm near the end
And I just ain't got the time
And I'm wasted
And I can't find my way home

Come down on your own
And leave your body alone
Somebody must change

You are the reason
I've been waiting all these years
Somebody holds the key

But I'm near the end
And I just ain't got the time
And I'm wasted
And I can't find my way home

But I can't find my way home
But I can't find my way home
But I can't find my way home
But I can't find my way home
Still I can't find my way home
And I ain't done nothing wrong
But I can't find my way home

Do You Love Me
(Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds)

I found her on a night of fire and noise
Wild bells rang in a wild sky
I knew from that moment on
I'll love her till the day that I died
And I kissed away a thousand tears
My lady of the Various Sorrows
Some begged, some borowed, some stolen
Some kept safe for tomorrow
On and endless night, silver star spangled
The bells from the chapel went jingle-jangle

Do you love me? Do you love me?
Do you love me? Do you love me?
Do you love me? Do you love me?
Do you love me? Like I love you

She was given to me to put things right
And I stacked all my accomplishments beside her
Still I seemed so obselete and small
I found God and all His devils inside her
In my bed she cast the blizzard out
A mock sun blazed upon her head
So completely filled with light she was
Her shadow fanged and hairy and mad
Our love-lines grew hopelessly tangled
And the bells from the chapel went jingle-jangle

Do you love me? Do you love me?
Do you love me? Do you love me?
Do you love me? Do you love me?
Do you love me? Like I love you

She had a heartful of love and devotion
She had a mindful of tyranny and terror
Well, I try, I do, I really try
But I just err, baby, I do, I error
So come find me, my darling one
I'm down to the grounds, the very dregs
Ah, here she comes, blocking the sun
Blood running down the inside of her legs
The moon in the sky is battered and mangled
And the bells from the chapel go jingle-jangle

Do you love me? Do you love me?
Do you love me? Do you love me?
Do you love me? Do you love me?
Do you love me? Like I love you

All things move toward their end
I knew before I met her that I would lose her
I swear I made every effort to be good to her
I made every effort not to abuse her
Crazy bracelets on her wrists and her ankles
And the bells from the chapel go jingle-jangle

Do you love me? Do you love me?
Do you love me? Do you love me?
Do you love me? Do you love me?
Do you love me? Like I love you

I don't even know what all the romaji says (the japanese language in our letters) but I found the site of the translations, so mom, now you will finally know what ONE of my Japanese songs means ;)

Fukai Mori; Deep Forest

2nd Ending Theme

Sung by: Do As Infinity
Donated by: Umi Ohtake (u-sigure@lon.allnet.ne.jp)

Romaji Lyrics English Translation

I'm sure that the heart I left behind
still lies hidden in the heart of the deep, deep forest.

Exhausted, without the strength to search
people vanish into the infinite darkness.

If it's so small, I wonder if I can see it even now?

* As we live on,
we lose a little bit more.
Shrouded in falsehoods and lies,
we stand frozen to the spot, unable to cry out

The days pass by and change,
without us even realizing how blue the sky really is.

Overcoming that made-up scheme, we live the present,
and our rusted hearts begin to beat again!

If we can find the rhythm of time, we can fly once again

We live our lives
wandering to the ends of the earth.
Believing (in you?), now I begin my journey with you,
in search of the light.

* Repeat

We live our lives
wandering to the ends of the earth.
Closing off
the way back,
we walk on for eternity.

We live our lives standing frozen to the spot,
unable to cry out, for eternity...

:heart:

I held you close to me
Once in a distant dream
Far from the shores of my fear
I sailed on this ocean
Where all I imagined could happen
And now you are here

It's so hard to touch what is out of your hands
To know and to trust what the heart understands

Only the ones who believe
Ever see what they dream
Ever dream what comes true

Life gives us magic
And life brings us tragedy
Everyone suffers some loss
Still we have faith in it
Childlike hope
There's a reason that outweighs the cost

And gravity throws all these rules in our way
And sometimes the spirit refuses to play

Only the ones who believe
Ever see what they dream
Ever dream what comes true

Oh Love
Turn me around in your arms
And in this dream we share
Let us not miss one kiss
And add my regrets to the tears in the rain
that's what the color of roses contain

Only the ones who believe
Ever see what they dream
Ever dream what comes true

I looked in the mirror this morning
And what did I see? Grey a-plenty
Could be the reason I'm not gettin' any
I looked in the mirror today

I looked in the mirror this morning
And what did I see? I saw my dad
Never really knew him, ain't that sad
I looked in the mirror today

I looked in the mirror this morning
And what did I see? I saw my mom
Savin' me a seat at the senior prom
I looked in the mirror today

One more look in the mirror, then on with the show
Believe we've still got a way to go
Not to fast and not too slow
Mixin' up the boogie with the do-si-do
I looked in the mirror today

Lady Ryuu, I think by now most of the known universe has heard Dragostea Din Tei, though I'm sure most know it as the Numa-Numa song. That's one of those tunes you either hate or love. Not much middle ground with that song. The link to the video is floating around AW on a few forums if you really want to drive mom nuts ;)

Romanian Lyrics

Ma-ia-hoo
Ma-ia-haa
1.Alo, Salut, sunt eu, un haiduc,
Si te rog, iubirea mea, primeste fericirea.

2.Alo, alo, sunt eu Picasso,
Ti-am dat beep, si sunt voinic,
Dar sa stii nu-ti cer nimic.

Chorus:Vrei sa pleci dar nu ma, nu ma iei,
Nu ma, nu ma iei, nu ma, nu ma, nu ma iei.
Chipul tau si dragostea din tei,
Mi-amintesc de ochii tai.

Vrei sa pleci dar nu ma, nu ma iei,
Nu ma, nu ma iei, nu ma, nu ma, nu ma iei.
Chipul tau si dragostea din tei,
Mi-amintesc de ochii tai.

3.Te sun, sa-ti spun, ce simt acum,
Alo, iubirea mea, sunt eu, fericirea.

4.Alo, alo, sunt iarasi eu, Picasso,
Ti-am dat beep, si sunt voinic,
Dar sa stii nu-ti cer nimic.

Chorus

Translated to English
Hello, Salute, itís me your Duke
And I made something thatís real
To show you how I feel

Hello, Hello, itís me Picasso
I will paint my words of love
With your name on every wall

When you leave my colors fade to gray
I need a love to stay or
All my colors fade away
Every word of love I used to say
Now I paint it everyday

I sold my strings, my songs, and dreams
And I bought some paints to match the colors of my love
Hello, Hello, itís me ,Picasso
I will spray my words of my love
With your name on every wall

When you leave my colors fade to gray
Little lover stay
All my colors fade away
Every word of love I used to say
Now I paint it everyday

Anna Nalick - Breathe (2am)(highlighted truly writer-relevant line)

2 AM and she calls me 'cause I'm still awake,
can you help me unravel my latest mistake,
I don't love him, winter just wasn't my season
Yeah we walk through the doors, so accusing their eyes
Like they have any right at all to critisize,
hypocrites, you're all here for the very same reason

'Cause you can't jump the track,we're like cars on a cable
and life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button girl,
So cradle your head in you hands
And breathe, just breathe,
Woah breathe, just breathe.

May he turn 21 on the base at Fort Bliss
Just today he sat down to the flask in his fist,
Ain't been sober, since maybe October of last year.
Here in town you can tell he's been down for a while,
But my God it's so beautiful when the boy smiles,
Wanna hold him, maybe I'll just sing about it.

Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable,
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table.
No one can find the rewind button boys,
So cradle your head in your hands,
And breathe, just breathe,
Woah breathe, just breathe

There's a light at each end of this tunnel, you shout
'Cause you're just as far in as you'll ever be out
And these mistakes you've made, you'll just make them again
If you only try turnin' around.

2 AM and I'm still awake, writing a song
If I get it all down on paper, its no longer
inside of me, threatening the life it belongs to.
And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd
'Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud
And I know that you'll use them, however you want to.

Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable,
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button now
Sing it if you understand.
and breathe, just breathe
woah breathe, just breathe,
oh breathe, just breathe.

I have been listening to this song over and over for the past hour.

I love this song!

Bob Seger ~ Night Moves

I was a little too tall
Could've used a few pounds
Tight pants points hardly reknown
She was a black haired beauty with big dark eyes
And points all her own sitting way up high
Way up firm and high

Out past the cornfields where the woods got heavy
Out in the back seat of my '60 Chevy
Workin' on mysteries without any clues
Workin' on our night moves
Trying' to make some front page drive-in news
Workin' on our night moves in the summertime
In the sweet summertime

We weren't in love oh no far from it
We weren't searching for some pie in the sky summit
We were just young and restless and bored
Living by the sword
And we'd steal away every chance we could
To the backroom, the alley, the trusty woods
I used her she used me
But neither one cared
We were getting our share

Workin' on our night moves
Trying to lose the awkward teenage blues
Workin' on out night moves
In the summertime
And oh the wonder
Felt the lightning
And we waited on the thunder
Waited on the thunder

I woke last night to the sound of thunder
How far off I sat and wondered
Started humming a song from 1962
Ain't it funny how the night moves
When you just don't seem to have as much to lose
Strange how the night moves
With autumn closing in

rhiannon rings like a bell thru the night
and wouldn't you love to love her?
she rules her life like a bird in flight
and who will be her lover?

all your life you've never seen
a woman - taken by the wind
-would you stay if she promised you heaven?
-will you ever win.........?

CHORUS:
rhiannon......
rhiannon......
rhiannon......

she is like a cat in the dark
and then she is the darkness
she rules her life like a fine skylark
and when the sky is starless

all your life you've never seen
a woman..taken by the wind...
-would you stay if she promised you heaven?
-will you ever win.....?
-will you ever win.....?

CHORUS:

Come Home by Ari Hest

I donít need no evidence
Written in a paper card
Saying that you miss me, that living alone is awfully hard

Just come home as soon as you can
Come home, donít ever leave again
Then together we will spend, every moment till the end

I donít want no diatribe
Telling me how you feel inside
Words can be quite vivid, but they canít bring you to me live

Its only 3,000 miles, give or take a few
Its only 3,000 miles, between my hands and you

I donít need no good luck charm
Hanging around my big old neck
Nothing in this world could make your being away correct

Just come home as soon as you can
Come home, donít ever leave again
Then together we will spend, every moment till the end

by Fleetwood Mac -- I love this song, ok the whole album.


I've been searching
For a pot of gold
Like the kind you find
At the end of the rainbow
I've been dreaming
Thought it was in vain
Ah, but now you're here
Can't believe that you're back again
Now I know I can't lose
As long as you follow
I'm gonna win
I'm gonna beg, steal, or borrow
As long as you follow
I've been wandering
Gone away too far
But the road was rough
To get back where you are
And the sun went down
It never seemed to rise
Ah, but now you're here
With the light shining in your eyes
Now I know I can't lose
As long as you follow
I'm gonna win
I'm gonna beg, steal, or borrow
Yes, I can live today
If you give me tomorrow
As long as you follow

Rarely do I ever hear someone sing a cappella with such emotion, as Lisa Gerrard. This song makes me cry...every time.


Dead Can Dance - The Wind That Shakes The Barley

I sat within the valley green
I sat me with my true love.
My sad heart strove the two between
The old love and the new love.
The old for her the new
That made me think on Ireland dearly.
While soft the wind blew down the glade
and shook the golden barley.
T'was hard the woeful words to frame
To break the ties that bound us.
But harder still to bear the shame
of foreign chains around us.
And so I said the mountain glen
I'll meet at morning early.
And I'll join the bold united men
While soft winds shook the barley.
T'was sad I kissed away her tears
My fond arm round her flinging.
When a foe, man's shot burst on our ears
From out the wild woods ringing.
A bullet pierced my true love's side
In live's young spring so early.
And on my breast in blood she died
While soft winds shook the barley.
But blood for blood without remorse
I've ta'en at oulart hollow.
I've lain my true love's clay like corpse
Where I full soon must follow.
Around her grave I've wandered drear
Noon, night, and morning early.
With breaking heart when e'er I hear
The wind that shakes the barley.



This is the poem that the song is based off of.

WIND THAT SHAKES THE BARLEY


I sat within a valley green
Sat there with my true love
And my fond heart strove to choose between
The old love and the new love
The old for her, the new that made
Me think on Ireland dearly
While soft the wind blew down the glade
And shook the golden barley

Twas hard the mournful words to frame
To break the ties that bound us
Ah, but harder still to bear the shame
Of foreign chains around us
And so I said, "The mountain glen
I'll seek at morning early
And join the brave united men"
While soft wind shook the barley

Twas sad I kissed away her tears
Her arms around me clinging
When to my ears that fateful shot
Come out the wildwood ringing
The bullet pierced my true love's breast
In life's young spring so early
And there upon my breast she died
While soft wind shook the barley

I bore her to some mountain stream
And many's the summer blossom
I placed with branches soft and green
About her gore-stained bosom
I wept and kissed her clay-cold corpse
Then rushed o'er vale and valley
My vengeance on the foe to wreak
While soft wind shook the barley

Twas blood for blood without remorse
I took at Oulart Hollow
I placed my true love's clay-cold corpse
Where mine full soon may follow
Around her grave I wondered drear
Noon, night and morning early
With aching heart when e'er I hear
The wind that shakes the barley

In the tears you gave to me
I found a river to an ocean
Concrete sky, and a stone cold sea
I came to where the emptiness
cracked open.

All my fears came crashing through
And met the fire of my sorrow
But I found my strength
in forgiving you
I never even dreamed
how far my heart could go.

To give my life beyond each death
from a deeper well of trust
to know that when
there's nothing left
You will always have
what you gave to love.

In this life the love you give
comes back around
to be your treasure
What you lose will be what you win
A well that echoes down
too deep to measure.

A silver coin rings down that well,
You can never spend too much
a diamond echoes deeper still...
And you'll always have
what you gave to love.
Always have what you gave to love.

Wip in my mother tongue means a quick heavy bounce of making love! Basically more sex than love, etc. blah blah, you know. Please drgnlvr, tell us more about your WIP and Ramstein!

Well, not sure what your mother tongue is, but these are the actual lyrics in the original German:

Wer zu Lebzeit gut auf Erden
wird nach dem Tod ein Engel werden
den Blick gen Himmel fragst du dann
warum man sie nicht sehen kann

Erst wenn die Wolken schlafengehn
kann man uns am Himmel sehn
wir haben Angst und sind allein

Gott weiŖ ich will kein Engel sein

Sie leben hinterm Sonnenschein
getrennt von uns unendlich weit
sie mŁssen sich an Sterne krallen (ganz fest)
damit sie nicht vom Himmel fallen

Erst wenn die Wolken schlafengehn
kann man uns am Himmel sehn
wir haben Angst und sind allein

Gott weiŖ ich will kein Engel sein

Erst wenn die Wolken schlafengehn
kann man uns am Himmel sehn
wir haben Angst und sind allein

Gott weiŖ ich will kein Engel sein


And this is the "Unofficial" translation:


Who in their lifetime is good on Earth
and will become an angel after death
you look to the sky and ask
why can't you see them

First if the clouds have gone to sleep
you can see us in the sky
we are afraid and alone

God knows I don't want to be an angel

They live behind the sunshine
separated from us, infinite expanse
they must cling to the stars (very tightly)
so they won't fall from the sky

First if the clouds have gone to sleep
you can see us in the sky
we are afraid and alone

God knows I don't want to be an angel

First if the clouds have gone to sleep
you can see us in the sky
we are afraid and alone

God knows I don't want to be an angel


The line "God knows I don't want to be an Angel" is an excellent description of Gideon's attitude. He is an angel, of a sort. He was brought here to keep the "balance" between good and evil. Thing is, he was brought here by accident. He's no warrior, but now he has no choice. So he's a "reluctant angel" so-to-speak.

The rest of the song is influential, as well. But that one line really struck me at the time I was coming up with the idea for the story.

Of course, Gideon might be an "angel", but he's not really a "nice" guy.

Just before our love got lost you said
"I am as constant as a northern star"
And I said, "Constant in the darkness
Where's that at?
If you want me I'll be in the bar"

On the back of a cartoon coaster
In the blue TV screen light
I drew a map of Canada
Oh Canada
And I sketched your face on it twice

Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
Oh and you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you
I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I'd still be on my feet

Oh I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I'm frightened by the devil
And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid
I remember that time that you told me, you said
"Love is touching souls"
Surely you touched mine
"Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time

Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
And you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you
I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I'd still be on my feet

I met a woman
She had a mouth like yours
She knew your life
She knew your devils and your deeds
And she said
"Go to him, stay with him if you can
Oh but be prepared to bleed"
Oh but you are in my blood you're my holy wine
Oh and you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
Still I'd be on my feet
I'd still be on my feet

This thread's so long that I don't know if this one's been posted already...maybe it has been...hell, maybe I already did...but I just listened to it (again) so, here goes....

Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen (Jeff Buckley version)

Well I heard there was a secret chord
that David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do ya?
Well it goes like this :
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah...

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
And she tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah...

(Yeah but) Baby I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor, (You know)
I used to live alone before I knew ya
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
and love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah...

Well there was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show that to me do ya
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah

Hallelujah...

[Guitar Instrumental]

Maybe there's a God above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
And it's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelu...
Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelu...

Sorry, ya'll, been feelin' the angry music lately...

HURT
I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing thatís real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything
What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
I wear my crown of s**t
On my liarís chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stain of time
The feeling disappears
You are someone else
I am still right here
What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

You had all of them on your side, didnít you?
You believe in all your lies, didnít you?
The ruinerís got a lot to prove heís got nothing to lose and now he made you believe
The ruinerís your only friend well heís the living end to the cattle he deceives
The raping of the innocent you know the ruiner ruins everything he sees
Now the only pure thing left in my f**king world is wearing your disease
How did you get so big?
How did you get so strong?
How did you get so hard?
How did you get so long?
You had to give them all a sign, didnít you?
You had to covet what was mine, didnít you?
The ruinerís a collector heís an infector serving his s**t to his flies
Maybe there will come a day when those that you keep blind will suddenly realize
Maybe itís a part of me you took to a place I hoped it would never go
And maybe that f**ked me up so much more than youíll ever know
How did you get so big?
How did you get so strong?
How did you get so hard?
How did you get so long?
What you gave to me
My perfect ring of scars
You know I can see what you really are
You didnít hurt me nothing can hurt me
You didnít hurt me nothing can stop me now

Angry (and content to be so, for the time being)...

I listened to The Glass Prison by Dream Theater in the car on my way to work tonight.


I. REFLECTION

Cunning, Baffling, Powerful
Been beaten to a pulp
Vigorous, Irresistable
Sick and tired and laid low
Dominating, Invincible
Black-out, loss of control
Overwhelming, Unquenchable
I'm powerless, have to let go

I can't escape it
It leaves me frail and worn
Can no longer take it
Senses tattered and torn

Hopeless surrender
Obsession's got me beat
Losing the will to live
Admitting complete defeat

Fatal Descent
Spinning around
I've gone too far
To turn back round

Desperate attempt
Stop the progression
At any length
Lift this obsession

Crawling to my glass prison
A place where no one knows
My secret lonely world begins

So much safer here
A place where I can go
To forget about my daily sins

Life here in my glass prison
A place I once called home
Fall in nocturnal bliss again

Chasing a long lost friend
I no longer can control
Just waiting for this hopelessness to end


II. RESTORATION

Run - fast from the wreckage of the past
A shattered glass prison wall behind me
Fight - past walking through the ashes
A distant oasis before me

Cry - desperate crawling on my knees
Begging God to please stop the insanity
Help me - I'm trying to believe
Stop wallowing in my own self pity

"We've been waiting for you my friend
The writing's been on the wall
All it takes is a little faith
You know you're the same as us all"

Help me - I can't break out this prison all alone
Save me - I'm drowning and I'm hopeless on my own
Heal me - I can't restore my sanity alone

Enter the door
Desperate
Fighting no more
Help me restore
To my sanity
At this temple of hope

I need to learn
Teach me how
Sorrow to burn
Help me return
To humanity
I'll be fearless and thorough
To enter this temple of hope

Believe
Transcend the pain
Living the life
Humility
Opened my eyes
This new odyssey
Of rigorous honesty

Serenity
I never knew
Soundness of mind
Helped me to find
Courage to change
All the things that I can

"We'll help you perform this miracle
But you must set your past free
You dug the hole, but you can't bury your soul
Open your mind and you'll see"

Help me - I can't break out this prison all alone
Save me - I'm drowning and I'm hopeless on my own
Heal me - I can't restore my sanity alone


III. REVELATION

Way off in the distance I saw a door
I tried to open
I tried forcing with all of my will and still
The door wouldn't open

Unable to trust in my faith
I turned and walked away
I looked around, felt a chill in the air
Took my will and turned it over

The glass prison which once held me is now gone
A long lost fortress
Armed only with liberty
And the key of my willingness

Fell down on my knees and prayed
"Thy will be done"
I turned around, saw a light shining through
The door was wide open

"Like A Stone"
by Audioslave - one of my favorites...

On a cobweb afternoon
In a room full of emptiness
By a freeway I confess
I was lost in the pages
Of a book full of death
Reading how we'll die alone
If we're good we'll lay to rest
Anywhere we want to go

[Chorus]
In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently
I'll wait for you there
Like a stone I'll wait for you there
Alone

On my deathbed I will pray
To the gods and thee angels
Like a pagan to anyone
Who will take me to heaven
To a place I recall
I was there so long ago
The sky was bruised
The wine was bled
And there you led me on

[Chorus]
In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently
I'll wait for you there
Like a stone I'll wait for you there
Alone Alone

And on I read
Until the day was gone
And I sat in regret
Of all the things I've done
For all that I've blessed
And all that I've wronged
In dreams until my death
I will wander on

[Chorus]
In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently
I'll wait for you there
Like a stone I'll wait for

Du Hast ~ Rammstein (Original German)

Du
du hast
du hast mich
du hast mich gefragt
du hast mich gefragt, und ich hab nichts gesagt

Willst du bis der Tod euch scheidet
treu ihr sein fŁr alle Tage

Nein

Willst du bis zum Tod, der scheide
sie lieben auch in schlechten Tagen

Nein


Translated into English

You
you have *
you have me
you have asked me
you have asked me and I have said nothing

Do you want, until death seperates you,
to be faithful to her for all days

No

Do you want, until death, which would seperate, **
to love her, even in bad days

No



Some explaination, found at Herzelid.com (http://herzeleid.com/) (I don't speak German, I'm afraid, but I love the music!)



* When Till is just saying "Du hast," it sounds as if he could either be saying "Du hast" (you have) or "Du hasst" (you hate). This is to give the song a double meaning, even though the official lyrics say "Du hast."

** There is another sort of double meaning here. If the line is read as "Tod der Scheide" it would be "until the death of the vagina" and not "until death, which would seperate" ("Tod, der scheide"). The whole song is a play on German wedding vows (Wollen Sie einander lieben und achten und die Treue halten bis dass der Tod euch scheidet? - Do you want to love and respect each other and to remain faithful, until death seperates you?). Instead of answering with "Ja," Till says "Nein," finally answering the question he said nothing to in the beginning.


Edit: Ooooh! This is my 666th post.

...

Do I win a prize?

Nutopia
(Meg Lee Chin)

Jesus said " Lay down your arms, Jesus said "Children come home"

I saw the best minds of my generation running on empty, Superglued to the T.V.,

Dreaming of prosperity, Talking incessantly, Saying nothing

Sleeping on platforms at train stations, Sipping chemical cocktails,

Alive to the Universe, Dead to the World.

Hallucinating delusions of media reality in Camden Town, Desperate in the pursuit of cool

He's in a suit, she's in a straight jacket, 7-11 nightmares at 3am and the moon is quiet and holy.

Watch all the bridges collide, Well I think we might have to lay low, for a while

I saw the best minds of my generation caught up in the virtual reality of living

Memorizing pin numbers and secret codes,

Swaying robotically to non-existant rhythms, Flashing memberships to clubs so exclusive nobody belongs,

Jesus said " Lay down your arms" Jesus said "Children come home"

Scared shitless, witless, clueless, useless, tightlipped, tightfisted,tightassed, half-assed

Sniveling, groveling, moaning, groaning Sniveling, groveling, moaning, groaning sniveling, groveling, sniveling, groveling

The city's all wrapped up in plastic like an electronic cocoon.

If you lay in the street you can hear it humming, Building up slowly from underground

If you close your eyes you can observe the blueprint The man-made dna that spirals breathlessly out of control,

As synapses collapse, bridges snap, into a restless utopia, Nutopia

Now the rain has arrived and I think we might have to lay low

Watch all the bridges collide and I think we might have to lay low.

Love the classics. Talking Heads' Psycho Killer and David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust. The memories just roll in.

Psycho Killer

I can't seem to face up to the facts
I'm tense and nervous and I can't relax
I can't sleep 'cause my bed's on fire
Don't touch me I'm a real live wire

Psycho Killer
Qu'est-ce que c'est?
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
Run run run run run run run away
Psycho Killer
Qu'est-ce que c'est?
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
Run run run run run run run away

You start a conversation you can't even finish it.
You're talkin' a lot, but you're not sayin' anything.
When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed.
Say nothing once, why say it again?

Psycho Killer,
Qu'est-ce que c'est?
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
Run run run run run run run away
Psycho Killer
Qu'est-ce que c'est?
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
Run run run run run run run away

Ce que j'ai fait ce soir la-Ce qu'elle a dit ce soir la Realisant mon espoir,
Je me lance vers la gloire... Ok
We are vain and we are blind
I hate people when they're not polite

Psycho Killer,
Qu'est-ce que c'est?
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
Run run run run run run run away
Psycho Killer,
Qu'est-ce que c'est?
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
Run run run run run run run away

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh...



Ziggy Stardust

Ziggy played guitar, jammin' good with Weird and Gilly,
The spiders from Mars, he played it left hand
But made it too far
Became the special man, then we were Ziggy's band

Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo
Like some cat from Japan, he could lick 'em by smiling
He could leave 'em to hang
Came on so loaded man, well hung and snow white tan

So where were the spiders while the fly tried th break our balls
Just a beer light to guide us
So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?

Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we was voodoo
The kids was just crass. He was the nazz
With God given ***
He took it all too far, but boy could he play guitar

Making love with his ego, Ziggy sucked up into his mind
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band

Ziggy Played Guitar

I can't listen to Pink Floyd's "Wish you were here." My brother was a major PF fan, and a guitar player. He was killed in a car accident, age 29, while on the road with his band.


"Wish you were here" was played at a benefit held in his memory.


It's been 9 years, and I still can't listen to the song.

I had a hard time, for a while , listening to Joan Osborne's "What is God was one of us?" because my brother, in our last phone conversation, 3 days before he was killed, told me to get that album .....how excellent it was. I did become a Joan Osborne fan, buy all of her past and present works, and saw her in concert once.


And, then there was my brother's own music, which was pretty hard to listen to. You can imagine how pathetic I looked, when, weeks after his funeral, friends would find me sitting in the parking lot outside of work, listening to his tape and saying "Oh - listen to this part...........".

Unfortunately, the song going through my mind right now, is.......A whole new world - the theme song from Aladin - sung by Peabo Bryson.



GEEZ.

Did I mention I used to know Peabo casually, when I lived in Atlanta in 1986?

Probably not. It hardly ever comes up in conversation.

Eulogy
(Tool)



He had alot to say.
He had alot of nothing to say.
We'll miss him.

So long.
We wish you well.
You told us how you weren't afraid to die.
Well then, so long.
Don't cry.
Or feel too down.
Not all martyrs see divinity.
But at least you tried.

Standing above the crowd,
He had a voice that was strong and loud.
We'll miss him.
Ranting and pointing his finger
At everything but his heart.
We'll miss him.

No way to recall
What it was that you had said to me,
Like I care at all.

So loud.
You sure could yell.
You took a stand on every little thing
And so loud.

Standing above the crowd,
He had a voice so strong and loud and I
Swallowed his facade cuz I'm so
Eager to identify with
Someone above the ground,
Someone who seemed to feel the same,
Someone prepared to lead the way, with
Someone who would die for me.

Will you? Will you now?
Would you die for me?
Don't you f*ckin lie.

Don't you step out of line.
Don't you f*ckin lie.

You've claimed all this time that you would die for me.
Why then are you so surprised when you hear your own eulogy?

You had alot to say.
You had alot of nothing to say.

Come down.
Get off your f*ckin cross.
We need the f*ckin space to nail the next fool martyr.

To ascend you must die.
You must be crucified
For your sins and your lies.
Goodbye...

U2 - from the Joshua Tree (LP, no less.....)



In the howling wind comes a stinging rain
See it driving nails into souls on the tree of pain
From the firefly, a red orange glow
See the face of fear running scared in the valley below

Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue

In the locust wind comes a rattle and hum
Jacob wrestled the angel and the angel was overcome
Plan a demon seed, you raise a flower of fire
See them burning crosses, see the flames, higher and higher

Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue

Suit and tie comes up to me
His face red
Like a rose on a thorn bush
Like all the colours of a royal flush

And he's peeling off those dollar bills
(Slapping them down), one hundred, two hundred,
And I can hear those fighter planes
And I can hear those fighrter planes
Across the mud huts as the children sleep
Through the alleys of a quiet city street
Up the staircase to the first floor
We turn the key and slowly unlock the door
A man breates deep into saxophone
Through the walls we hear the city groan
Outside is America
Outside is America

Bob Seger ~ Jody Girl


Jody girl, Jody girl, spend your time today
Watching clocks spin the hours away.
Jody girl, you know the worldís
Goiní around all day,

Thinking back, thinkin' back...
to the things he used to say.
Didnít he put you on a pedestal,
When first you met?

Sure was some honeymoon,
Ainít it hard to forget?
What ever happened to that crazy boy
With the love light in his eyes?

Used to bring you flowers every day.
Now you sit here on a cloudy afternoon
Watchiní a soap opera on t.v.
Your old manís workiní
And your kids are out playiní
Little girl...
youíre not feeliní too free.

Keep thinkiní back, thinkiní back to high school,
Them high school days.
All those wild, wild times you had.
All the boy friends, boy friends knockiní on your door.

Jody girl, Jody girl,
Spend your time today
Watchiní clocks spin the hours away.
Jody girl, you know the worldís
Goiní by all day.

Thinkiní back to before you promised to stay.
Didnít he put you on a pedestal
When first you met?
Sure was some honeymoon -
Ainít it hard to forget?

Knoxville Girl
(Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds)

I met a little girl in Knoxville
A town we all know well
And every sunday evening
In her home I'd dwell
We went to take an evening walk
About a mile from town
I picked a stick up off the ground
And I knocked that fair girl down

She fell down on her bended knees
For mercy she did cry
"Oh Willy, dear, don't kill me yet
I'm unprepared to die"
She never spoke another word
I only beat her more
Until the ground around me
With her blood did flow

I took her by her golden curls
And I dragged her 'round and 'round
Throwing her into the river
That flows from Knoxville town
Go down, go down, you Knoxville girl
With your dark and roving eyes
Go down, go down, you Knoxville girl
You can never be my bride

I started back to Knoxville
Got there about midnight
My mother, she was worried
She woke up in a fright
Saying, "Dear son, what have you done
To bloody up your clothes?"
I told my anxious mother
That I was bleeding in my nose

I called for me a candle
And I called for me a bed
And I called for me a handkerchief
To bind my aching head
I rolled and thrashed the whole night through
All horrors I did see
The devil stood at the foot of my bed
Pointing his finger at me

They carried me down to Knoxville
And put me in a cell
My friends all tried to get me out
But none could grow my bail
I'm here to waste my life away
Down in this dirty old jail
Because I murdered that Knoxville girl
The girl I loved so well

A Woman's Worth ~ Alicia Keys

You could buy me diamonds
You could buy me pearls
Take me on a cruise around the world
Baby, you know I'm worth it
Dinner lit by candles
Run my bubble bath
Make love tenderly to last a lifetime
Baby, you know I'm worth it

Wanna please, wanna keep, wanna treat, your woman right
Now just don't, better show that she knows she's worth your time
You will lose if you choose to refuse to put her first
She will if she can't find a man who knows her worth

Mmmmhmmmm...

'Cause a real man knows a real woman when he sees her
And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her
A real woman knows a real man always comes first
And a real man just can't deny a woman's worth

Mmmmhmmmm...

Hold up
'Cause if you treat me fairly, I'll give you all my goods
Treat you like a real woman should
Baby, I know you're worth it
If you never play me, promise not to blow off
I'll hold you down when sh*t gets rough
'Cause baby I know you're worth it

She walks the mile, makes you smile, all the while being true
Dont take for granted the passion she has for you
You will lose if you choose to refuse to put her first
She will if she can't find a man who knows her worth

'Cause a real man knows a real woman when he sees her
And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her
A real woman knows a real man always comes first
And a real man just can't deny a woman's worth

No need to read between the lines, spelled out for you
Just hear this song cause you can't go wrong with your values
A woman, woman, woman, woman's worth

'Cause a real man knows a real woman when he sees her
And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her
A real woman knows a real man always comes first
And a real man just can't deny a woman's worth

A woman's worth...

Mmmmhmmmm...

Goodbye ~ Alicia Keys

Mmmhmm, bye bye

How do you love someone
That hurts you oh so bad
With intentions good
Was all he ever had

But how do I let go when I've
Loved him for so long and I've
Given him all that I could
Maybe love is a hopeless crime
Giving up what seems your lifetime
What went wrong with something once so good

How do you find the words to say
To say goodbye
If your heart don't have the heart to say
To say goodbye

I know now I was naÔve
Never knew where this would lead
And I'm not trying to take away
From the good man that he is

But how do I let go when I've
Loved him for so long and I've
Given him all that I could
Was it something wrong that we did
Because others infiltrated
What went wrong with something once so good

How do you find the words to say
To say goodbye
If your heart don't have the heart to say
To say goodbye

Is this the end
are you sure
How should you know when you've never been here before
It's so hard to just let go
When this is the one and only love I've ever known

So how do you find the words to say
When it's been so long
To say goodbye
If your heart don't have the heart to say
To say goodbye

Find the words to say goodbye, my love...

Why do I Feel so Bad?

Friends we've been for so long
Now true colors are showing
Makes me wanna cry, oh yes it does
Cause i have to say goodbye
By now, i should know
That in time things must change
So it shouldnt be so bad
So why do i feel so sad?

How can i adjust
To the way that things are going
It's killing me slowly
Oh, i just want it to be
How it used to be
Yeah cause i wish that i could stay
But in time things must change
So it shouldn't be so bad
So why do i feel so sad?

You cannot hide the way you feel inside, i realize
Your actions speak much louder than words
Apart, we have grown
So tell me why

By now i should know
That in time things must change
So, it shouldn't be so bad
So, why do i feel so sad?

By now I must grow
I must go
And I have to leave you behind

But why do I feel so sad
when I know it must change
Why do I feel so bad inside
when I know you must be let go...

So, it shouldn't be so bad
So, why do I feel so sad
Tell me...
by now, I should know that in time things must change
And I had to leave you behind

If it could, it wouldn't be that bad
Why do I feel so sad
Why can't I make up my mind
It'll be just fine...

Let me just say: Tom Petty f'in rocks! :hi:

We got some thiní we both know it,
We donít talk too much about it
Ainít no real big secret, all the same,
Somehow we get around it

Listen, it donít really matter to me
Baby, you believe what you wanna believe
You see, you donít have to live like a refugee

Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have
Kicked you around some
Tell me why you wanna lay there,
Revel in your abandon

Honey, it donít make no difference to me
Baby, everybodyís had to fight to be fre e
You see, you donít have to live like a refugee
No baby, you donít have to live like a refugee

Baby, we ainít the first
Iím sure a lot of other lovers been burned
Right now this ainít real to you
Itís one of those things you got to feel to be true

Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have
Kicked you around some
Who knows, maybe you were kidnapped,
Tied-up, taken away, and held for ransom

Honey, it donít really matter to me
Baby, everybodyís ha d to fight to be free
You see, you donít have to live like a refugee
No, you donít have to live like a refugee
Baby, you donít have to live like a refugee

Tom Petty - Breakdown
It's alright if you love me
It's alright if you don't
I'm not afraid of you running away,Honey,
I get the feeling you wont
There is no sense in pretending
Your eyes give you away
Something inside you is feeling like I do
We've said all there is to say
Breakdown, go ahead and give it to me
Breakdown honey take me through the night
Breakdown now I'm standing here can't you see
Breakdown it's all right
It's all right
It's all right

Tom Petty - MARY JANE'S LAST DANCE

She grew up in an Indiana town
Had a good lookin' momma who never was around
But she grew up tall and she grew up right
With them Indiana boys on an Indiana night
Well she moved down here at the age of 18
She blew the boys away, it was more than they'd seen
I was introduced and we both started groovin'
She said, "I dig you baby but I got to keep movin'"...on, keep it movin' on
Last dance with Mary Jane
One more time to kill the pain
I feel summer creepin' in and I'm
Tired of this town again
Well I don't know what I've been told
You never slow down, you never grow old
I'm tired of screwing up, I'm tired of goin' down
I'm tired of myself, I'm tired of this town
Oh my my, oh hell yes
Honey put on that party dress
Buy me a drink, sing me a song,
Take me as I come 'cause I can't stay long
Last dance with Mary Jane
One more time to kill the pain
I feel summer creepin' in and I'm
Tired of this town again
There's pigeons down on Market Square
She's standin' in her underwear
Lookin' down from a hotel room
Nightfall will be comin' soon
Oh my my, oh hell yes
You've got to put on that party dress
It was too cold to cry when I woke up
I hit the last number, I walked to the road
Last dance with Mary Jane
One more time to kill the pain
I feel summer creepin' in and I'mTired of this town again


Tom Petty - I Won't Back Down

Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down
Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down.
Well I know what's right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground and I won't back down
Hey baby there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down
No, I won't back down

Tom Petty - You Got Lucky Lyrics

You better watch what you say
You better watch what you do to me
Don't get carried away
Girl, if you can do better than me
Go...yeah, go
But remember
Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babeYou got lucky, babe
When I found you
You put a hand on my cheek
And then you turn your eyes away
If you don't feel complete
If I don't take you all of the way
Then go, yeah, go,
But remember
Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babe
You got lucky, babe
When I found you
Yeah go,
Just, go,
But remember
Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babe
You got lucky, babe
When I found you

Tom Petty - Into The Great Wide Open Lyrics

Eddie waited til' he finished high school
He went to Hollywood, got a tattoo
He met a girl out there with a tattoo too
The future was wide open
They moved into a place they both could afford
He found a night club he could work at the door
She had a guitar and she taught him some chords
The sky was the limit
Into the great wide open
Under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open
A rebel without a clue
The papers said Ed always played from the heart
He got an agent and a roadie named Bart
They made a record and it went in the chart
The sky was the limit
His leather jacket had chains that would jingle
They both met movie stars, partied and mingled
Their A&R man said "I don't hear a single"
The future was wide open
Into the great wide open
Under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open
A rebel without a clue

You'll See

written by Madonna and David Foster
Track 4, Time: 4:16
-------------------------
You think that I can't live without your love
You'll see,
You think I can't go on another day.
You think I have nothing
Without you by my side,
You'll see
Somehow, some way

You think that I can never laugh again
You'll see,
You think that you destroyed my faith in love.
You think after all you've done
I'll never find my way back home,
You'll see
Somehow, someday

Chorus:

All by myself
I don't need anyone at all
I know I'll survive
I know I'll stay alive,
All on my own
I don't need anyone this time
It will be mine
No one can take it from me
You'll see

You think that you are strong, but you are weak
You'll see,
It takes more strength to cry, admit defeat.
I have truth on my side,
You only have deceit
You'll see, somehow, someday

Chorus2:

All by myself
I don't need anyone at all
I know I'll survive
I know I'll stay alive,
I'll stand on my own
I won't need anyone this time
It will be mine
No one can take it from me
You'll see

You'll see, you'll see
You'll see, mmmm, mmmm

This was the song from one of the albums of 79-80. Having been exactly 17 at the time, I wore the vinyl out around this track. (Couldn't be it but I could see it.)

The Cars - Let's Go

She's driving away with the dim lights on
She's making a play and she can't go wrong
She never waits too long
She's winding them down on her clock machine
And she won't give up 'cause she's seventeen
She's a frozen fire
She's my one desire
CHORUS
And I don't want to hold her down
Don't want to break her crown
When she says, let's go
I like the nightlife baby
She says, let's go
She's laughing inside 'cause they can't refuse
She's so beautiful now, she doesn't wear her shoes
She doesn't like to choose
She's got wonderful eyes and a risque mouth
And when I ask her before, she said she's holding out
She's a frozen fire
She's my one desire
CHORUS

Well let's start by
Making it clear
Who is the enemy
Here

And we'll show them
That it's not them
Who is superior

So let's start by
Making it clear
Who is the enemy here
And we'll show them
That it's not them
Who is superior

It's gonna be bad
It's gonna be wrong
It's gonna feel__
Good

Marching the hate machines into the sun
Marching the hate machines into the sun

Well let's start by
Making it clear
Who is the enemy here

And we'll show them
That it's not them
Who is superior

This is one of the best running songs, ever (along with 'Rebel Yell' and 'You've Got Another Thing Coming')...

I Need to Know

Well the talk on the street says you might go solo
Good friend of mine say you're leaving by your back door

I need to know (I need to know)
I need to know (I need to know)
If you think you're gonna leave then you'd better say so
I need to know (I need to know)
I need to know (I need to know)
Because I don't know how long
I can hold on
If you're making me wait
If you're leading me on
I need to know (I need to know)
I need to know (I need to know)

Who would've thought that you'd fall for his line?
All of a sudden it's me on the outside

I need to know (I need to know)
I need to know (I need to know)
If you think you're gonna leave then you'd better say so
I need to know (I need to know)
I need to know (I need to know)
Because I don't know how long
I can hold on
If you're making me wait
If you're leading me on
I need to know (I need to know)
I need to know (I need to know)

You can cut me down with just one word
Or say the sweetest thing I ever heard,
I know you have a power over me,
and I don't have it over you.

They say one lover loves the other more,
But I'm the lover you've been waiting for,
I know I couldn't hurt you half as much
And I wouldn't try to if I could.

(Chorus)
And I guess it's really love this time,
The feeling's growing day to day,
Yes I guess it's really love this time,
No one else can make me feel this way.

A drifter waiting for a bigger meal,
A gambler waiting for a better deal,
I only laugh at things I used to dream
'Cause I'm only half of what we feel.

And I guess it's really love this time,
The feeling's growing day to day,
Yes, I guess it's really love this time,
No one else can make me feel this way.

Each time I've done my share of crying,
You find a way to keep me trying,
There must be schools for fools like me.

(Repeat chorus)

Prison Sex
(Tool)



It took so long to remember just what happened.
I was so young and vestal then,
you know it hurt me,
but I'm breathing so I guess I'm still alive
even if signs seem to tell me otherwise.
I've got my hands bound,
my head down, my eyes closed,
and my throat wide open.

Do unto others what has been done to you

I'm treading water,
I need to sleep a while.
My lamb and martyr, you look so precious.
Won't you come a bit closer,
close enough so I can smell you.
I need you to feel this,
I can't stand to burn too long.
Released in this sodomy.
For one sweet moment I am whole.

Do unto you now what has been done to me.

You're breathing so I guess you're still alive
even if signs seem to tell me otherwise.
Won't you come just a bit closer,
close enough so I can smell you.
I need you to feel this.
I need this to make me whole.
There's release in this sodomy.
For I am your witness that
blood and flesh can be trusted.
And only this one holy medium brings me peace of mind.

Got your hands bound, your head down,
your eyes closed.
You look so precious now.


I have found some kind of temporary sanity in this
sh*t blood and cum on my hands.

I've come round full circle.
My lamb and martyr, this will be over soon.
You look so precious.

In your head

Oh ... sweetness, sweetness, I was only joking
When I said by rights you should be
Bludgeoned in your bed

And now I know how joan of arc felt
Now I know how joan of arc felt, oh
As the flames rose to her roman nose
And her walkman started to melt
Oh ...

LOVE IN A TRASHCAN

If you touch that girl
You know it's okay
People say she's a whore anyway
I think she looks like a nice vamp
Looking for love in a trashcan

If you kiss that girl you won't be caught dead
She's the coolest girl you think you ever met
I think she fits right into my life
On the road till the end of time

Now the time is right and you feel the need
To go down low and receive a treat
The jukebox churns out songs about sex
Come on baby you're my best fix

Artist: Ours
Song: Dizzy
Album: Distorted Lullabies

We ran
We starved the things
That feel
Outback
The drunken waters steal from me

If we beat him down, will he stay?
He's a little dizzy
I feel it starting to take me
Where did everybody go?
I need them now
To save me

We fell, when they choked the things that feed
How come... we hurt the one's we need?
Lay down, and stretch upon the sea

If we beat him down, will he stay?
He's a little dizzy
I feel it starting to take me
Where did everybody go?
I need them now
If we beat him down... will he stay?


PS- This song is so hauntingly beautiful, especially when you hear it live. Actually there are several songs on this album that are really good & different.

Do What You Have To Do
by Sarah McLachlan

What ravages of spirit
Conjured this tempestuous rage
Created you a monster
Broken by the rules of love
And fate has led you through it
You do what you have to do
And fate has led you through it
You do what you have to do ...
And I have the sense to recognize that
I donít know how to let you go

Every moment marked
With apparitions of your soul
Iím ever swiftly moving
Trying to escape this desire
The yearning to be near you
I do what I have to do
The yearning to be near you
I do what I have to do
But I have the sense to recognize
That I donít know how
To let you go
I donít know how
To let you go

A glowing ember
Burning hot
Burning slow
Deep within Iím shaken by the violence
Of existing for only you
I know I canít be with you
I do what I have to do
I know I canít be with you
I do what I have to do
And I have sense to recognize but
I donít know how to let you go
I donít know how to let you go
I donít know how to let you go

Brother, my cup is empty
And I haven`t got a penny
For to buy no more whiskey
I have to go home

I am the captain of my pain
Tis the bit, the bridle,
The trashing cane
The stirrup, the harness
The whipping mane
The pickled eye
The shrinking brain

O brother, buy me one more drink
I`ll explain the nature of my pain
Yes, let me tell you once again
I am the captain of my pain

O brother, my cup is empty
And I haven`t got a penny
For to buy no more whiskey
I have to go home

I cannot blame it all on her
To blame her all would be a lie
For many a night I lay awake
And wished that I could watch her die

To see her accusing finger spurt
To see flies swarm her hateful eye
To watch her groaning in the dirt
To see her clicking tongue crack dry

O brother, buy me one more drink
One more drink and then goodbye
And do not mock me when I say
Let`s drink one more before I die

O brother, my cup is empty
And I haven`t got a penny
For to buy no more whiskey
I have to go home

Well I`ve been sliding down on rainbows
Well I`ve been swinging from the stars
Now this wretch in beggars clothing
Bangs his cup across the bars

Look, this cup of mine is empty!
Seems I`ve misplaced my desires
Seems I`m sweeping up the ashes
Of all my former fires

So brother, be a brother
And fill this tiny cup of mine
And please, sir, make it whiskey
For I have no head for wine

O brother, my cup is empty
And I haven`t got a penny
For to buy no more whiskey
I have to go home

I counted up my blessings
And counted only one
One tiny little blessing
And now that blessings gone

So buy me one more drink, my brother
Then I`m taking to the road
Yes, I`m taking to the rain
I`m taking to the snow

O my friend, my only brother
Do not let the party grieve
So throw a dollar onto the bar
Now kiss my as$ and leave

O brother, my cup is empty
And I haven`t got a penny
For to buy no more whiskey
I have to go home

"Extraordinary"

You think that I go home at night
Take off my clothes, turn out the lights
But I burn letters that I write
To you, to make you love me

Yeah, I drive naked through the park
And run the stop sign in the dark
Stand in the street, yell out my heart
To make, to make you love me

I am extraordinary, if you'd ever get to know me
I am extraordinary, I am just your ordinary
Average every day sane psycho
Supergoddess
Average every day sane psycho

You may not believe in me
But I believe in you
So I still take the trash out
Does that make me too normal for you?

So dig a little deeper, cause
You still don't get it yet
See me lickin' my lips, need a primitive fix
And I'll make, I'll make you love me

I am extraordinary, if you'd ever get to know me
I am extraordinary, I am just your ordinary
Average every day sane psycho
Supergoddess
Average every day sane psycho
Supergoddess

See me jump through hoops for you
You stand there watching me performing
What exactly do you do?
Have you ever thought it's you that's boring?
Who the hell are you?

I am extraordinary, if you'd ever get to know me
I am extraordinary, I am just your ordinary
Average every day sane psycho
Supergoddess
Average every day sane psycho

Average every day sane psycho
Supergoddess
Average every day sane psycho

Average every day sane psycho

The beast in me
Is caged by frail and fragile bars
Restless by day
And by night rants and rages at the stars
God help the beast in me

The beast in me
Has had to learn to live with pain
And how to shelter from the rain
And in the twinkling of an eye
Might have to be restrained
God help the beast in me

Sometimes it tries to kid me
That it's just a teddy bear
And even somehow manage to vanish in the air
And that is when I must beware
Of the beast in me that everybody knows
They've seen him out dressed in my clothes
Patently unclear It it's New York or New Year
God help the beast in me

* * * * *


Stealing down an ally on a cold dark night
I see a halo in the rain around the street light
I stop and look, and listen to the sound
As the raindrops penetrate the silence all around
Alone, I gaze into the glistening street
The distant thunder echoing my heartbeat
Urging me on to a secret goal
Away from the light from this lamp on a pole
So I turn, slip away into the rain
Drifting like a spirit through the shadows in the lane
Clutching the tools of my trade in my hand
An old box of matches and a gasoline can
Darkness envelopes the scene like a shroud
A veil of emptiness hangs from the clouds
Filling up the cracks in this desolate place
Cradled by the night in an icy embrace

Moving to the town like a ghost in the rain
A dim reflection in a dark window pane
Blackness beckons from every side
Creeping all around like an incoming tide
A broken window in an empty house
I slip inside and begin to douse
The whole place with the fuel that will feed the fire
And push back the night, taking me higher
On out of the darkness in a defeaning roar
The match in my hand is the key to the door
A simple turn of the wrist will suffice
To open a passage to paradise
I pause, I think about the past and the gloom
The smell of gasoline permeates the room
Everyone has a little secret he keeps
I light the fires while the city sleeps

(Like the 4th of July.)

The match makes a graceful arc to the floor
And time stands still as I turn for the door
Which explodes in a fireball and throws me to the street
I hit the ground running with the flames at my feet
Reaching for the night which recoils from the fire
The raindrops hiss like a devilish choir
Dying in the flames with a terrible sound
Calling all the names of the sleepers all around
But then in the arms of the night, they lay
Their dreams sprout wings and fly away
Out of the houses in a gathering flock
Swarming overhead as I hurry down the block
I make my escape with the greatest of ease
And savor the darkness, drop to my knees
And the lightless window, my hand on the latch
I reach in my pocket, and pull out a match

(Like the 4th of July.)

How your love makes me feel - Diamond Rio

Iím no poet and I know it
I donít use five dollar words
This might not sound like much compared to all the pretty things youíve heard
But hereís how Iíd explain it since you brought it up
It wonít sound like anybody elseís version of love

Itís like just before dark
Jump in the car
Buy an ice cream and see how far we can drive before it melts kinda feeliní
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside
Thereís a cow in the road and you swerve to the left
Fate skips a beat and it scares you to death and you laugh until you cry
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside

It might not be more suitable for greeting cards and such
But itís a true and honest feeling and if you feel it half as much
We could go through life together without a worry or a care
Knowing deep down in our hearts that weíve got something special here

Itís like just before dark
Jump in the car
Buy an ice cream and see how far we can drive before it melts kinda feeliní
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside
Thereís a cow in the road and you swerve to the left
Fate skips a beat and it scares you to death and you laugh until you cry
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside
Thatís how your love makes me feel

I have always heard you canít put love into words

Itís like just before dark
Jump in the car
Buy an ice cream and see how far we can drive before it melts kinda feeliní
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside
Thereís a cow in the road and you swerve to the left
Fate skips a beat and it scares you to death and you laugh until you cry
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside
Thatís how I feel
Thatís how your love makes me feel

[From Audioslave]

And when you wanted me
I came to you
And when you wanted someone else
I withdrew
And when you asked for a light
I set myself on fire
And if I go far away I know
Youíll find another slave

Chorus
Cos now Iím free from what you want
Now Iím free from what you need
Now Iím free from what you are

And when you wanted blood
I cut my veins
And when you wanted love
I bled myself again
Now that Iíve had my fill of you
Iíll give you up forever
And here I go far away
I know youíll find another slave

Chorus
Cos now Iím free from what you want
Now Iím free from what you need
Now Iím free from what you are

Then a vision came to me
When you came along
I gave you everything
But then you wanted more

Chorus
Cos now Iím free from what you want
Now Iím free from what you need
Now Iím free from what you are (x2)

I will never bother you
I will never promise to
I will never follow you
I will never bother you

Never speak a word again
I will crawl away for good

I will move away from here
You wonít be afraid of fear
No thought was put into this
I always knew it would come to this
Things have never been so swell
I have never felt this well

Pain...
You know youíre right...

Iím so warm and calm inside
I no longer have to hide
Letís talk about someone else
Steaming soup against her mouth
Nothing really bothers her
She just wants to love herself

I will move away from here
You wonít be afraid of fear
No thought was put into this
I always knew itíd come to this
Things have never been so swell
I have never felt this well

Pain...
You know youíre right

"Scars" from Papa Roach

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And my scars remind me that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

Drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
I'm pissed cause you came around
Why don't you just go home
Cause you channel all your pain
And I can't help you fix yourself
You're making me insane
All I can say is

[Chorus:]
I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I tried to help you once
Against my own advice
I saw you going down
But you never realized
That you're drowning in the water
So I offered you my hand
Compassions in my nature
Tonight is our last stand

[Chorus]

I'm drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
You shouldn't ever came around
Why don't you just go home?
Cause you're drowning in the water
And I tried to grab your hand
And I left my heart open
But you didn't understand
But you didn't understand
Go fix yourself

I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life
I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life

[Chorus x2]

On a couch with a friend and a bottle of gin
If I could have my way
I'd be runnin' with the circus
I would be taming all the lions
There'd be no denying I was brave and crazy
If I could have my way
I wouldn't be dreaming, scheming, screaming
Oooh, what am I gonna do
About you

I wishes were horses
This beggar would ride
I'd have my cake and eat it
With a little on the side
I'd never want for money
I'd never want for friends
I wouldn't have to make excuses for the shape that I'm in
Shaking and crazy
Before I saw your eyes
I was in control of my soul on the whole
Oooh, what am I gonna do
About you

Cool as a rule
I wouldn't play nobody's fool
But I keep on talking
Made in the shade
I had a perfect cue to fade
But I keep on walking

If I could have my way
I'd check out right now
I'd say out to lunch honey thanks a bunch
It wouldn't work out anyhow
But this desire's too much
It's rented out my brain
It's showing previews of your body
Driving me insane
And that's crazy
So all that I can do
Is to beg, plead, won't you tell me please
What am I gonna do
About you

Yeah you two, I love Melissa Etheridge's music, I agree. She obviously has real talent - maybe the best since Jani Joplin. Just takes hearing her voice to know that though. ;)There's also a newer singer named Joss Stone who is never reminiscent of Joplin - strong voice truly awesome.

Ok, I'm gonna go get a few songs I have been listening to today.

Love this thread, obviously. :)

"Spoiled"

I kinda thought that I'd be better off by myself
I've never been so wrong before
You made it impossible for me to ever
Love somebody else
And now I don't know what I left you for

See I thought that I could replace you
He can't love me the way you do
'Till now I never knew
Baby

[Chorus:]
I'm spoiled
By your love boy
No matter how I try to change my mind
What's the point it's just a waste of time
I'm spoiled by your touch boy
The love you give is just too hard to fight
Don't want to live without you in my life
I'm spoiled

I tried to tell myself that I'd be over you in a week or two
But baby that was 'bout a year ago
I've never seen the word love so personified as I do with you
And that is why I just can't let go, oh no

[Chorus]

Spoil me

And I would only be fooling myself if I tried to
Believe there's room for someone else in my heart
There ain't no way I'm getting over you
I don't know what I've been trying to prove
I'm hopeless, helpless when it comes to you

[Chorus]

I've been spoiled yeah yeah


PS- If you haven't listened to Joss Stone yet, you are missing out! I have to share just a few more of her songs with ya'll cause I recently picked up her album and it's amazing the voice this girl has. Talent runs deep through her second album. I'll share a few of my favorites. [Hang in there it's painless] :Jump: :partyguy: I promise. ;):Cheers:

"You Had Me"

You had me
You lost me
You're wasted
You cost me
I don't want you here messing with my mind

Spitting in my eyes and I still see
Tried to keep me down
I'm breaking free
I don't want no part in your next fix
Someone needs to tell you this is it

Hey listen you'll be missin'
Out on all my love and my kissing
Make your mistakes on your own time
When you come down you're just no good to have around
Instead of making money you took mine

[Chorus]
You had me
You lost me
You're wasted
You cost me
I don't want you here messing with my mind
I've realized in time
that my eyes are not blind
I've seen it before
I'm taking back my life

You tried to trade on my naivete
But the things you do and say embarrass me
See once upon a time I was your fool
But the one I leave behind is you

Hey listen you'll be missin'
Out on all my love and my kissing
Make your mistakes on your own time
When you come down you're just no good to have around
Instead of making money you took mine

[Chorus]

Vodka and a packet of cigarettes
That's all it used to be but now
You're sniffing on snow when you're feeling low
Suffocating dreams that could have been
Maybe for a minute I was down with that
But it didn't take long for me to see the light
You swore you had control of it
But when I stepped back you slipped on your supply

[Chorus]

Taking it back I'm taking it back
Taking back my life
Taking it back I'm taking it back
Taking back my life
Ain't nobody got no business stressing all the time
Taking it back I'm taking it back
Taking back my life

[Chorus]

Taking it back I'm taking it back
Taking back my life
Taking it back I'm taking it back
Taking back my life
Ain't nobody got no business stressing all the time
Taking it back I'm taking it back
Taking back my life

Ps- This song cracks me up just a tad, it sounds reminiscent of the disco era. But it's so soulful and kinda funky. LOL.

"Security"

A loss that would have thrown
A hole through anybody's soul
And you were only human after all
So don't hold back the tears my dear
Release them so your eyes can clear
I know that you will rise again
But you gotta let them fall
I wish that I could snap my fingers
Erase the past but no
You cannot rewind reality
Once the tape's unrolled

[Chorus:]
If your spirit's broken and you can't bear the pain
I will help you put the pieces back
A little more each day
And if your heart is locked and you can't find the key
Lay your head upon my shoulder
I'll set you free
I'll be your security

A moment of despair
That forces you to say that life's unfair
It makes you scared of what tomorrow may bring
But don't go giving into fear
Stop hiding all alone in there
The show keeps going on and on
But you'll miss the whole damn thing
I wish I had a crystal ball to see what the future holds
But we don't know how the story ends till it's all been told

[Chorus]

On any clock upon the wall
The time is always now
So baby kiss the past goodbye
Don't let the future blow your mind
Just sit back and chill
Take things as they come
You can't be afraid
To live for today
I will be with you each step of the way

[Chorus (2x)]


Snakes And Ladders"

In the game of love
It takes all you got
Just to keep it moving up
Don't you wanna reach the top
But heaven seems such a crazy dream
If your heart has room for doubt
You're neither in you're neither out

99 1/2 it just won't do
You gotta give me all of you
Not asking too much of a heart that's true
So tell me...

[Chorus]
What's the name of the game that we are playing
But whenever I think that we are winning
Then you roll the dice take a slide
Right back to the one from 99

Is it gonna go on like this forever
Are we gonna to take that last step together
Going round and round and up and down
Feels just like snakes and ladders

Baby don't it feel like a carousel
Where all the world is rushing by
But when it stops you realize
That you're right back where you started at
I need a little more than that
It time for us to face the facts

Whether to be or not to be
That is the question so it seems
We're going nowhere in between
So tell me...

[Chorus]

Don't wanna play this game anymore
I gotta know right now for sure
What am I giving my heart for
Baby I need a little more
Don't leave me hanging on a string
Now that I gave you everything

Not when I play to win
Snakes and ladders

[Chorus (2x)]




"Right To Be Wrong"

I've got a right to be wrong
My mistakes will make me strong
I'm stepping out into the great unknown
I'm feeling wings though I've never flown
I've got a mind of my own
I'm flesh and blood to the bone
I'm not made of stone
Got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone

I've got a right to be wrong
I've been held down too long
I've got to break free
So I can finally breathe
I've got a right to be wrong
Got to sing my own song
I might be singing out of key
But it sure feels good to me
Got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone

You're entitled to your opinion
But it's really my decision
I can't turn back I'm on a mission
If you care don't you dare blur my vision
Let me be all that I can be
Don't smother me with negativity
Whatever's out there waiting for me
I'm going to faced it willingly

I've got a right to be wrong
My mistakes will make me strong
I'm stepping out into the great unknown
I'm feeling wings though I've never flown
I've got a mind of my own
Flesh and blood to the bone
See, I'm not made of stone
I've got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone

I've got a right to be wrong
I've been held down to long
I've got to break free
So I can finally breathe
I've got a right to be wrong
Got to sing my own song
I might be singing out of key
But it sure feels good to me
I've got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone


"Young At Heart"

[Chorus:]
You're wasting your time
Trying to tear us apart
You can't stop our plans
We were destined from the start
He loves me
I love him
And even though were young at heart
You're the one in denial

Tired of creeping around when I'm craving for
His kiss
Whenever I'm lonely he is the only one
I miss
You say it ain't right but I think that you got it wrong
Its bliss
And I love him yeah yeah
I love him

He makes me go oo-oo-ooooo
When he looks at me
Oo-ooo-ooo
And it's plain to see
Nothing you can do-oo-ooooo
To discourage me
And I love him
I really love him

[Chorus]

My parents say I'm too good and that he doesn't deserve me
My friends think he's not cool enough so they'd rather desert me
My sister says her boyfriend has a brother and she'll introduce me
But I don't want him, no
I've got my man

There's nothing you can do-oo-oooo
To discourage me
I'm cool with my man's family
If you were in my shoes
You'd feel differently
But you're in denial
You're in denial

[Chorus]

You're the one in denial
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one in denial

Said I would cry for him
Lie for him
Hell I'd even die for him
Cry for him
Lie for him
Hell I'd even die for him
Cry for him
Lie for him
Hell I'd even die for him

[Chorus (2x)]

"Be Yourself"
Audioslave (They rock)

Someone falls to pieces
Sleepin all alone
Someone kills the pain
Spinning in the silence
To finally drift away
Someone gets excited
In a chapel yard
Catches a bouquet
Another lays a dozen
White roses on a grave

To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do

Someone finds salvation in everyone
And another only fame
Someone tries to hide himself
Down inside their selfish brain
Someone swears his true love
Untill the end of time
Another runs away
Separate or united?
Healthy or insane?

To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do

And even when you've paid enough, been pulled apart or been held up
With every single memory of the good or bad faces of luck
don't lose any sleep tonight
I'm sure everything will end up alright

You may win or lose

But to be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do

When I have nothing left to feel.
When I have nothing left to say
I'll just let this slip away.

I feel these engines power down.
I feel this heart begin to bleed
as I turn this burning page.

Please forgive me if I bleed.
Please forgive me if I breathe.
I have words I need to say.
Oh so very much to say.

And whose life do I lead?
And whose blood do I bleed?
Whose air do I breathe?
With whose skin now do I feel?

I'm supposed to walk away from here.
I'm supposed to walk away from here.

And whose life do I lead?
Whose blood do I bleed?
Whose air do I now breathe?
I'm convinced there's nothing more.

The day you died I lost my way.
The day you died I lost my mind.

What am I supposed to do?
Is there something more?

The engines power down.
Like a soldier to his end I go.
Because I'm convinced
that there is nothing more.

and whose life do I lead
and whose air do I breathe?
With whose skin and whose blood do I feel?

What happens now?
Have I done something wrong?

Forgive my need to bleed right now.
Please forgive my need to breathe
But I've so much to say
and it wouldn't matter anyway.
You're not here to hear these words that I must say
and I'm convinced inside
that there is nothing more.

Whose life do I lead?
Whose air do I breathe.
Whose blood do I now bleed?
With whose skin now do I feel?

I have nothing left to say.
I have nothing left to feel.
Am I supposed to let this go now,
let darkness come and take you away?

Add It Up Day after day
I will walk, and I will pray
But the day after today
I will stop and I will start
Why can't I get just one kiss
Why can't I get just one kiss
Believe me there'd be somethings that I wouldn't miss
But I look at your pants and I need a kiss
Why can't I get just one screw
Why can't I get just one screw
Believe me I'd know what to do
But something won't let me make love to you
Why can't I get just one ****
Why can't I get just one ****
I guess it's something to do with luck
But I waited my whole life for just one...
Day after day
I get angry and I will say
That the day is in my sight
When I'll take a bow and say goodnight
Mo my momma momma mo my mum
Have you kept your eye your eye on your son
I know you've had problems you're not the only one
But when your sugar left he left you on the run
Mo my momma momma mo my mum
Take a look now at what your boy has done
He's walking around like he's number one
He went downtown and got him a gun
So don't shoot shoot shoot that thing at me
You know you got my sympathy
But don't shoot shoot shoot that thing at me
In your broken down kitchen at the top of the stairs
Can I mix in with your affairs
Share a smoke make a joke
Grasp and reach for a leg of hope
Words to memorize words hypnotize
Words make my mouth exercise
Words all fail the magic prize
Nothing I can say when I'm in your thighs
Mo my momma momma mo my mother
I would love to love you lover
The city's restless it's ready to pounce
It go here in your bedroom ounce for ounce
Said I'm giving you a decision to make
Things to lose things to take
Just as she was about ready to cut it up
She said wait a minute honey I'm gonna add it up
I'm gonna add it up add it up and see what you got
You gotta add it up
Day after day
I get angry and I will say
That the day is in my sight
When I take a bow and say goodnight
Goodnight

Irish American tune...Civil War era

And its by the hush me boys
I'm sure that's to hold your noise
and listen to poor Paddy's lamentation
I was by hunger pressed
and by poverty distressed
so I took a thought I'd leave the Irish nation

So I sold my horse and plow
Sold my sheep and pigs and sow
My little farm of land and I were parted
and my sweetheart Bid McGee
I'm afeared I'll never see
For I left her on that morning quite brokenhearted

Chorus:
And here you boys, do take my advice
To Americay I'll have yous not be coming
for there's nothing here but war
where the murdering cannons roar
and I wish I was back home in dear old Ireland

So meself and a hundred more
to Americay sailed ore
our fortunes to be making we were thinking
but when we landed in Yankee land
the stuck a musket in our hand
Saying Paddy you must go and fight for Lincoln

General Meagher to us said
if you get shot or you loose your leg
every mother's son of yous will get a pension
Well in the war I lost me leg
and all I've gots a wooden peg
oh me boys it is the truth to you I mention

Chorus

Oh there's nothing here but war
where the murdering cannons roar
and I wish I was back home in dear old Ireland

Now I'd have thought myself in luck
to be fed an Indian buck
And in Ireland the land that I delight in
but by the devil I do say
Curse Americay
for I'm sure I've had enough of your hard fighting

Chorus

(this is a very moving tune. it has been recorded with variations, etc. most recently in the movie Gangs of New York....but that was a particularly bad cover of it. I recommend the version by David Kincaid...by far the best IMHO)

Everclear, "Wonderful" (One of the best punch-you-in-the-gut songs, due to the poignant lyrics combined with the upbeat tune. Every time I catch this on the radio, like tonight, it brings tears to my eyes. I'm such a damned softie.)

I close my eyes when I get too sad
I think thoughts that I know are bad
Close my eyes and I count to ten
Hope it's over when I open them
I want the things that I had before
Like a Star Wars poster on my bedroom door
I wish I could count to ten
Make everything be wonderful again

Hope my mom and I hope my dad
Will figure out why they get so mad
Hear them scream, I hear them fight
They say bad words that make me wanna cry

Close my eyes when I go to bed
And I dream of angels who make me smile
I feel better when I hear them say
Everything will be wonderful someday

Promises mean everything when you're little
And the world's so big
I just don't understand how
You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
Tell me everything is wonderful now

Na na na na na na na

Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now

I go to school and I run and play
I tell the kids that it's all okay
I like to laugh so my friends won't know
When the bell rings I just don't wanna go home

Go to my room and I close my eyes
I make believe that I have a new life
I don't believe you when you say
Everything will be wonderful someday

Promises mean everything when you're little
And the world is so big
I just don't understand how
You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
When you tell me everything is wonderful now

I don't wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now

I don't wanna hear you say
That I will understand someday
No, no, no, no
I don't wanna hear you say
You both have grown in a different way
No, no, no, no
I don't wanna meet your friends
And I don't wanna start over again
I just wanna my life to be the same
Just like it used to be
Somedays I hate everything
I hate everything
Everyone and everything
Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now

I don't wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now

Hey babe
How you doin'?
Can I be your boy?

A pet at my side
God in the sky
Snow falling down
Freeze my body to the ground
I can't ride
But one more time
I will ride
All over the world

Washed over the side
Top of the sky
Slow diver down
Two feet land on a different ground
You can't live easily
You can't even speak
But all of them speak

All over the world (x7)

I will meet you over there
I am
Going to meet you over there

Washed over the side
Top of the sky
Slow diver down
Two feet land on a different ground
You can't live easily
You can't even speak
Fish all of them speak
All over the world

A plain with no herd
Not even a bird
When one side is hot
The other side of the moon is not
It's just like a rock
Maybe some time
They'll make it a ride

All over the world (x7)

I will meet you over there
I am, I am
Going to meet you over there

[unintelligible]
Time is an arrangement
Time is an arranger
I am a derangement

All my thoughts
All I am
Are my thoughts
All my thoughts
I am all
What I'm taught

Better call the ranger
Got a train derailment
Better call the ran-ger

All I'm taught
All I am
Are my thoughts
All my thoughts
All I am
Are my thoughts
What I'm not______

*Heck, it's Mariah Carey's first really good song in years thought I'd share it since I just heard it again on the radio.* I love this song.


I didn't mean it
When I said I didn't love you so
I should have held on tight
I never should've let you go
I didn't know nothing
I was stupid
I was foolish
I was lying to myself
I could not fathom that I would ever
Be without your love
Never imagined I'd be
Sitting here beside myself

'Cause I didn't know you
'Cause I didn't know me
But I thought I knew everything
I never felt
The feeling that I'm feeling now
Now that I don't
Hear your voice
Or have your touch and kiss your lips
Cause I don't have a choice
Oh, what I wouldn't give
To have you lying by my side
We belong together

[Chorus:]
When you left
I lost a part of me
It's still so hard to believe
Come back baby please
We belong together
Who else am I gonna lean on
When times get rough
Who's gonna talk to me on the phone
Till the sun comes up
Who's gonna take your place
There ain't nobody there
We belong together

I can't sleep at night
When you are on my mind
Bobby Womack's on the radio
Singing to me
'If you think you're lonely now'
Wait a minute
This is too deep, too deep
I gotta change the station
So I turn the dial
Trying to catch a break
And then I hear Babyface
I only think of you
And it's breaking my heart
I'm trying to keep it together
But I'm falling apart
I'm feeling all out of my element
I'm throwing things
Crying
Trying to figure out
Where the hell I went wrong
The pain reflected in this song
Ain't even half of what
I'm feeling inside
I need you
Need you back in my life baby

[Chorus]

[Repeat chorus]
When you left
I lost a part of me
It's still so hard to believe
Come back baby please
We belong together
Who else am I gonna lean on
When times get rough
Who's gonna talk to me on the phone
Till the sun comes up
Who's gonna take your place
Baby nobody else
We belong together

" Runnin' With The Devil"

I live my life like there's no tommorow
All I've got i had to steal
At least I don't have to beg or borrow
Yes I'm living at a pace that kills

ohh
(runnin with the devil)
ahhh yeah
(runnin with the devil)

I found a simple life wasn't simple
When I jumped out on that road
Ain't got no love, no love you'd call real
Ain't got nobody waiting at home

ah yeah
(runnin with the devil)
Yes I'm runnin
(runnin with the devil)
ooh wooh
(runnin with the devil)
ooh
(runnin with the devil)
guitar

I found a simple life aint so simple
When I jumped out on that road
Ain't got no love, no love you'd call real
Ain't got nobody waiting at home

White Rabbit ~ Jefferson Airplane

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
Call Alice
When she was just small

When men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know

When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your head
Feed your head
Feed your head"

What's up ~ Four Non Blondes

Twenty - five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
And I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this brotherhood of man
For whatever that means
And so I cry sometimes
When I'm lying in bed
Just to get it all out
What's in my head
And I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning
And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream at the top of my lungs
What's going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?
Ooh, ooh ooh,
Ooh, ooh ooh,
And I try, oh my god do I try
I try all the time, in this institution
And I pray, oh my god do I pray
I pray every single day
For a revolution
And so I cry sometimes
When I'm lying in bed
Just to get it all out
What's in my head
And I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning
And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream at the top of my lungs
What's going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?
Ooh, ooh ooh...
Twenty - five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination


Drifting ~ Four Non Blondes
What a wonderful hesitation
Who would bear to feel sorry for me
Popped another pill just to calm me
Collapsed to my knees and fell fast into sleep
There I was drifting
Way out into the sunshine
Expecting to crash but Iím tied to a string
Look at me Iím a tangled puppet
I might be a mess but I sure can survive
Find myself awake counting sad days
1-2-3 thatís too many for me
Popped another pill just to find me
Reached for my hand
But it was already there
Then I started believiní
That I fell out of a tiny raindrop
That lost itís way when it decided to roam
Chasing me was a hungry dweller
But I had escaped it by pretending to die
Come follow me you wonít expect the illusion
Youíll see, itís my imagination
Hand me your eyes
I will put them in front of mine
Youíll see a little better
Youíll see a little better
What a wonderful destination
Where I am now
I can no longer see
Popped another pill just to kill me
Collapsed to my knees
And fell fast into sleep
There I was drifting
Way out into the sunshine
Expecting to crash but Iím tied to a string
Look at me Iím a tangled puppet
I might be a mess but I sure can survive
But I had escaped it by pretending to die


Old Mr. Heffer ~ Four Non Blondes

Stumbled my way on the darkest afternoon
I got a beer in my hand and I'm draggin' a stoagle too
the back of my brain is tickin' like a clock
I simmer down gently but boil on what the f*ck
Get back 'cause I'm feelin' good tonight
get back 'cause I'm feelin' right
Trouble is a word that stars with a capital T
I refer myself to the word 'cause I'm so keen
little do they know that I'm struttin' such a style
it makes the trouble in me all worth the while
So get back 'cause I'm feelin' good tonight
get back 'cause I'm feelin' right
There goes Billy and Susie walkin' hand in hand
I quickly caught up slurring yo what's the plan
they had fear in their eyes and bellies that ran like dogs
I barrelled down laughing screaming Susie
you forgot your clogs
well, Old Mr. Heffer
I'm really pleased to meet you
I didn't mean to scare your blue-eyed child
but Billy wouldn't talk to me
and Susie wouldn't look at me
it made me so doggone crazy
I had to chase them for a mile
all I wanted was change for a buck
Well I'm back and I'm feelin' good tonight
yea I'm back and I'm feelin' right
so get back 'cause I'm feelin' right
Jesus!

KMFDM

Die wunder dieser welt werden dir geschenkt
Gluck ist nicht kauflich sehnsucht bleibt unerreicht
Preisratsel winken nimmersatt
Kein mitleid fur die mehrheit

Nihilistic mystics
Apostolic Alcoholics
Messianic Manics

In the age of super-boredom
Hype and mediocrity
Celebrate relentlessness
Menace to society

Refuse is our inspiration
Terrorism our trade
Sabotage and piracy
Chaos our mental state

Mesmerizing festering
Intended for the faint of heart
Cultish and Anthemic
Until death us do part

Like a fiendish tropic virus
Spitting bile at all you whores
Razor-sharp tongue-in-cheek
Poking in your open sores

A wolf in sheep's clothing
The ultimate disgrace
Wrapped up as a gift of god
Exploding in your face

This is counter-culture from the underground
Eternal revolution and this is how it sounds
KMFDM better than the best
Megalomaniacal and harder than the rest

Wenn der untergrund bebt ist die ordnung erschuttert
Der verrat an der seele macht leben ungesund
Mit unschlagbaren reimen werden wir uns vertreiben

My Hometown by Charlie Robison
Unleashed Live (from Gruene Hall)

I had a buddy back in 81
and we made ourselves a pact
We were heading for the new pipeline
and we weren't never looking back
Well we worked 80 hours making time and a half
but LaGrange was too damn hot
We drove back home at the end of that week
and we spent it all on pot

Chorus:
So I'll see you in Houston
If I ever get out that way
I'll see you in Dallas
but I won't have long to stay
if you're ever out west son
and you're feeling like slowing down
I'll see you around
round my hometown

Well I played ball ever single fall
I could run just like the wind
I went to college like they asked me to
but they didn't ask my friends
I don't think I seen a single classroom
but I drank a lot of beer
My buddies still love to listen to me
when I talk about that year

Chorus

Now I got myself a little band
and we're pretty good I guess
I never learned how to wear my hair
and I never learned how to dress
so I'm leaving for the last time sugar
I'm never more to roam
I'm gonna back my bags a little heavy this time
gonna head my *** back home

Chorus

I'll see you around
round my hometown

And the swallows have sharpened their beaks
This is the time of our great undoing
This is the time that I'll come running
Straight to you
For I am captured
Straight to you
For I am captured

The light in our window is fading
The candle gutters on the ledge
Well now sorrow, it comes a-stealing
And I'll cry, girl, but I'll come a-running
Straight to you
For I am captured
Straight to you
For I am captured
Once again

Gone are the days of rainbows
Gone are the nights of swinging from the stars
For the sea will swallow up the mountains
And the sky will throw thunder-bolts and sparks
Straight at you
But I'll come a-running
Straight to you
But I'll come a-running
One more time

Heaven has denied us its kingdom
The saints are drunk howling at the moon
The chariots of angels are colliding
Well, I'll run, babe, but I'll come running
Straight to you
For I am captured
Straight to you
For I am captured
One more time

1000 Words - from Final Fantasy X-2

I know that you're hiding things,
Using gentle words to shelter me.
Your words were like a dream.
But dreams could never fool me,
Not that easily.
I acted so distant then,
Didn't say goodbye before you left.
But I was listening,
You'll fight your battles far from me,
Far too easily.

"Save your tears 'cause I'll come back."
I could hear that you whispered as you walked through that door,
But still I swore
To hide the pain,
While I turned back the pages.

Shouting might have been the answer,
What if I cried my eyes out and begged you not to depart?
But now I'm not afraid to say what's in my heart.

'Cause a thousand words call out through the ages,
They'll fly to you,
Even though I can't see,
I know they're reaching you,
Suspended on silver wings.

Oh a thousand words,
One thousand embraces,
Will cradle you,
Making all of your weary days seem far away.
They'll hold you forever.

Oh a thousand words (a thousand words),
Have never been spoken (ohhh yeah),
They'll fly to you,
They'll carry you home (carry you home),
And back into my arms,
Suspended on silver wings (On silver wings),

And a thousand words (ohh),
Call out through the ages (call through the ages),
They'll cradle you (oh yeah)
Turning all of the lonely years to only days (only days),
They'll hold you forever...

Liberi Fatali - from Final Fantasy VIII, composed by Nobuo Uematsu

Fithos lusec wecos vinosec
Fithos lusec wecos vinosec
Fithos lusec wecos vinosec

Excitate vos e somno, liberi mei
Cunae non sunt
Excitate vos e somno, liberi fatali
Somnus est non.

Surgite
Inventite hortum veritatis

Ardente veritate
Urite mala mundi
Ardente veritate
Incendite tenebras mundi

Valete, liberi
Diebus fatalibus

Fithos lusec wecos vinosec
Fithos lusec wecos vinosec
Fithos lusec wecos vinosec
Fithos lusec wecos vinosec

English Translation:

Fithos lusec wecos vinosec (Has no translation, is the "succession of witches")
Fithos lusec wecos vinosec
Fithos lusec wecos vinosec

Arise from your sleep, my children
Your cradles shall no longer exist
Arise from your sleep, children of Fate
Abandon your cradles

Arise
Discover the garden of Truth

Brilliant truth
Burn the heavens of evil
Burning truth
Set ablaze the heavens of darkness

Prevail, children
Fated day

Fithos lusec wecos vinosec
Fithos lusec wecos vinosec
Fithos lusec wecos vinosec
Fithos lusec wecos vinosec

You're Blasť, Louis Armstrong


You're deep just like a chasm
You've no, enthusiasm
You're tired and uninsipired.
You're blase.

Your day is one of leisure
In which you search for pleasure.
You're bored when you're adored.
You're blase.

While reaching for the moon,
And the stars up in the sky,
The simple things of normal life
Are slowly passing by.

You sleep, the sun is shining;
You wake, its time for dining.
There's nothing new for you to do
You're blase.

While reaching for the moon,

One of my all time favorites.... sighhhhh....

Wish You Were Here, Pink Floyd

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skys from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade
Your heros for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

...it seemed appropriate...

I could write a book- Dinah Washington's version

If they asked me I could write a book
About the way you walk and whisper and look
I could write the preface on how we met
So the world would never forget

And the simple secret of the plot
Is just to tell them that I love you a lot
Then the world discovers as my book ends
How to make two lovers of friends

Wish You Were Here--Love love that song

I am listening to Frank
It Had To Be You
Why do I do, just as you say
Why must I just, give you your way
Why do I sigh, why don�t I try - to forget

It must have been, that something lovers call fate
Kept me saying: "i have to wait"
I saw them all, just couldnt fall - til we met

It had to be you, it had to be you
I wandered around, and finally found - the somebody who
Could make me be true, and could make me be blue
And even be glad, just to be sad - thinking of you

Some others I've seen, might never be mean
Might never be cross, or try to be boss
But they wouldn't do
For nobody else, gave me a thrill - with all your faults, I love
you still
It had to be you, wonderful you
It had to be you

Brilliant - a man who enjoys Nick Cave, Yeats and Wales. A man after my own heart no doubt.

Ambulance - by Tv on the Radio

Your slim frame
Your eager eyes and your wild mane
Oh they keep me where I belong
All wrapped up in wrong

Youíre to blame
For wasted words of sad refrain
Oh let them take me where they may
Believe me when I say

I will be your accident if you will be my ambulance
And I will be your screech and crash if you will be my crutch and cast
And I will be your one more time if you will be my one last chance
oh fall for me

Your slim frame
Your simple stare and your wrong, wrong name
Oh they keep me where I belong
All strung out in song

Why so tame
We could shoot wilder vines
Through younger veins
Sip slow from nightís deep wells
And watch our gardens swell
Once the seeds are sown
Wild and overgrown, youíll see
Heart's colors changed like leaves

Oh sweet sweet tree
Fall for me
Fall fast, fall free, fall for me

Because I will be your ambulance if you will be my accident
And I will be your screech and crash if you will be my crutch and cast
And I will be your one more time if you will be my one last chance

Oh sweet tree, fall with me
Fall fast, fall free, fall with me

I was driving doing nothing
On the shores of Great Salt Lake
When they put it on the air
I put it in the hammer lane
I soon forgot myself
And I forgot about the brake
I forgot about all laws
And I forgot about the rain
They were talking on the nine
And all across the amy band
Across the road they were turning around
And headed south with me
It got so crowded on the road
I started driving in the sand
My head was feeling scared
But my heart was feeling free
The desert turned to mud
It seems that everybody heard
Everybody was remembering
To forget they had the chills
Then I heard the voices on a broadcast
From up on the bird
They were getting interviewed
By some good man whose name was Bill
I'm almost there to Vegas
Where they're puttin' on a show
They've come so far
I've lived this long
At least

Good point. One non-Nick Cave song that can do that is this (I suggest you get a copy and listen to it - shocking song, really gets you after 3 hours straight).

THE BLOOD BROTHERS LYRICS

"Love Rhymes With Hideous Car Wreck"

Those tire tracks
zigzag your torso like a Devil's self portrait.
The car accident, the skin graft treatment, the flower baskets,
the wincing relatives...

you bid her farewell then got in your car
and that's the last thing that you can recall.
and when they pulled you out
you didn't know your name
exploding semi truck blurred your face with flame...

you met Jane four years ago today
dancing at some vomit-stained frat party.
Her newspaper gown, flashing headline brown, her violent gypsy dance,
her tired underpants...

Love [x12]
rhymes with pity now
Love [x12]
rhymes with sympathy now

Jane let you touch and feel her
she was so free like a pineapple in a tree
You said it's dangerous
to be so intimate
You know it's dangerous, dangerous, dangerous.

Jane said when she laid on her back
the sun hit her body like an ugly landscape.

But some things never get better
like used cars and bad livers.
So you traded her in for a better looking brand.
One with fake porno tits
a pad lock on her lips
disposable tan
biodegradable hands.

Back at the hospital
you got no visitors at all.
She visits you in your sleep,
but that newspaper gown is always on fire [x2]

She met him a week after you left her
when you tossed out her touch to the garbage collector.
He talked her out of her skirt in his beer-soaked apartment
and then they did all the things
you never said that you wanted.
And the sirens are laughing underneath your skull.
And your thoughts are turning dull, callous and cold.
Yesterday you gave your burden a name.
Yesterday you gave your burden a face.

But your burden it looks a lot like her.

Love [x12]
rhymes with pity now
Love [x12]
rhymes with sympathy now

Joni Mitchell's Both Sides, Now

Rows and floes of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons evírywhere
Iíve looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on evíryone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way
Iíve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
Itís cloud illusions I recall
I really donít know clouds at all

Moons and junes and ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As evíry fairy tale comes real
Iíve looked at love that way

But now itís just another show
You leave íem laughing when you go
And if you care, donít let them know
Donít give yourself away

Iíve looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
Itís loveís illusions I recall
I really donít know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say I love you right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
Iíve looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say Iíve changed
Well somethingís lost, but somethingís gained
In living evíry day

Iíve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
Itís lifeís illusions I recall
I really donít know life at all
Iíve looked at life from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
Itís lifeís illusions I recall
I really donít know life at all

Idlewild - (I am) What I am not

Calling places,
collecting careless sentences
I write them down
So I ignore them,
and you should too, you should ignore every word
Is calling what you can surrender
The only way to really learn
That the alphabet is made up the words
You could never resist to quote

If all this wisdom is true
Then I doubt it could really have come from you

Then I am what I am not, I am what I am not
So there must be something more then
If I am just a thought I'm not

Faster than the destination
Of knowing where you really are
Is where you've always been
Or is it where you began
And happiness, did it happen
Sooner than the doubt it cost you
You learn from the mistakes that I taught you

If all this wisdom is true
Then I doubt it could really have come from you

Then I am what I am not, I am what I am not
So there must be something more then
I am what I am not,
If there's nothing more then
I am what I am not, I am what I am not
There must be something more then
If I am what I am not

Then I am what I am not, I am what I am not
There must be something more then
I am what I am not,
I know there's nothing more then
I am what I am not, I am what I am not
I know there's nothing more then
If I am what I am not

The White Stripes ~ The Hardest Button to Button

We started living in an old house
My ma' gave birth and we were checking it out
It was a baby boy
So we bought him a toy
It was a ray gun
And it was 1981

We named him baby
He had a toothache
He started crying
It sounded like an earthquake
It didnít last long
Because I stopped it
I grabbed a rag doll
And stuck some little pins in it

Now weíre a family
And weíre alright now
We got some money and a little place
To fight now
We donít know you
And we donít owe you
But if you see us around
I got something else to show you

Now, itís easy when you donít know better
You think itís sleazy?
Then put it in a short letter
We keep warm
But thereís just something wrong with you
Just feel like youíre the hardest button to button

I had opinions
That didn't matter
I had a brain
That felt like pancake batter
I got a backyard
With nothing in it
Except a stick
A dog
And a box with something in it

The hardest button to button
The hardest button to button
The hardest button to button


The White Stripes Ė Seven Nation Army


Iím going to fight them off
A seven nation army couldnít hold me back
Theyíre gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back
And Iím talking to myself at night
Because I canít forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarrette.
And the message coming from my eyes
Says leaveit alone
Donít want to hear about it
Every single oneís got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of hell
And if I catch it coming back my way
Iím gonna serve it to you
And that ainít what you want to hear,
But thatís what Iíll do
And the coming from my bones
Says find a home.
Iím going to Wichita
Far from this opera for evermore
Iím gonna work the straw
Make the sweat drip from every pore
And Iím bleeding, and Iím bleeding, and Iím bleeding
Right before the Lord
All the words are gonna bleed from me and I will think
No more
And the stains coming from my blood
Tell me go back home.

"You have had all that money can give you, but that wasn't
enough. You became a thrill-seeker. Kill for the thrill.
(assassin) This thrill-seeking became the one great thing in
your life, planning one thrill on another until... the murder. Kill
for the love of killing. (guilty) Kill for the thrill. The
thrill-seeker comes from all walks of life. He comes from the
home, a home where the parents are to busy to treat their children
with respect."

Die! Die! Die! Die!
Scum-suckers! Debauchery divulged!
Anal f*ck-fest, thrill Olympics
Savage scourge supply and sanctify
So what ? So what ?
So what ? So what ?
Die! Die! Die! Die!

Die! Die! Die! Die!
You said it!
Sedatives supplied become laxatives
My eyes sh*t out lies
I only kill to know I'm alive
So what ? So what ?
So what ? So what ?
Die! Die! Die! Die!

"Kill for the thrill. (assassin) Some people think newspapers
exaggerate juvenile crime. All that is confined mostly to the
large cities, juvenile delinquency is underlined. Thus parents
think something is going wrong with the environment. Adults
create the world, children live it. Juvenile delinquency is
always rooted in adult delinquency. And in this process, parents
play the key role when children grow up among adults who refuse
to recognize anything that is fine and good, or worthy of
respect."

Die! Die! Die! Die!
So what, it's your own problem to learn to live with
Destroy us, or make us slaves
We don't care, it's not our fault that we were born too late
A screaming headache on the promised age
Killing time is appropriate
To make a mess and f*ck all the rest, we say, we say
So what ? So what ?
So what ? So what ?
Die!

Die!
Now that I know what it's like,
I'll kill them all if I like
Only time will decide
No one listened to reason,
it's too late and I'm ready to fight

The Good Ship Lollipop
music by R. Whiting and words by S. Clare

I've thrown away my toys
Even my drum and train.
I wanna make some noise
With real live aeroplanes.

Some day I'm going to fly.
I'll be a pilot too.
And when I do, how would you
Like to be my crew...

On the good ship lollipop.
Its a sweet trip to a candy shop
Where bon-bons play
On the sunny beach of Peppermint Bay.

Lemonade stands everywhere.
Crackerjack bands fill the air.
And there you are
Happy landing on a chocolate bar.

See the sugar bowl do the tootsie roll
With the big bad devils food cake.
If you eat too much ooh ooh
You'll awake with a tummy ache.

On the good ship lollipop
Its a night trip into bed you hop
And dream away
On the good ship lollipop.
