Here is a fun game I learned from another website.
The first person thinks of a word from a song (not too difficult please )
The next person has to THINK OF A SONG that has that word in it.
They write down some of the lyrics which contain that word, and also should post the name of the song's artist, just so we can learn about your favorite musicians.
Finally, that second person thinks of another word, from their own song, to specify with BOLD FACE TYPE for the next person to think of a song for.
Get it? Well, I'll show you. Hope you like this game.
First word - AMERICA

FROM Simon and Garfunkle:
Cathy, I'm lost I sais,
though I knew she was sleeping.
I'm empty and aching and I dont know why.
Counting the cars on the New Jersey turnpike,
they've all come to look for america.

Laughing on the bus,
playing games with the FACES.


(the next person has to think of a song with the word 'Faces" in it)

Isnt it supposed to be a word in your song lyrics?? Like empty or something?

darkness
08-27-2006, 04:12 AM
no.
the word is now "faces"

so it's a totally different word every time - unrelated to the lyrics above? Makes more sense if you had to pick a word out of the lyrics you posted.

"Faces" is in the lyrics of Kathy's Song, by Simon & Garfunkel

People Are Strange, by Doors

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


(is that what you had in mind, darkness?)

Morning Dew - Lyrics by Robert Hunter - music by Jerry Garcia

I thought I heard a baby cry this morning,
I thought I heard a baby cry this today.
You didnt hear no baby cry this morning,
You didnt hear no baby cry today.

Where have all the people gone my honey,
Where have all the people gone today.
Theres no need for you to be worrying about all those people,
You never see those people anyway.

Great Balls of Fire Jerry Lee Lewis

Great Balls Of Fire by Jerry Lee Lewis


You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain

Too much love drives a man insane You broke my will, but what a thrill

Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire

I laughed at love 'cause I thought it was funny

You came along and moved me honey

I've changed my mind, your love is fine

Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire

1959 - Sheb Wooley ...


Well he came down to earth and lit in a tree
I said Mr. Purple People Eater don't eat me
I heard him say in a voice so gruff
I wouldn't eat you cuz you're so tough

It was a one-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater
one-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater
one-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me.

The Hanging Tree - from the movie

I came to town to search for gold
And I brought with me a memory
And I seem to hear the nightly cry
Go hanging your dream on the hanging tree
Your dreams of love that could never be
Hang your faith of dream on the hanging tree

Memory - From Cats (based on the poems of TS Eliot)

Midnight
Not a sound from the pavement
Has the moon lost her memory?
She is smiling alone
In the lamplight
The withered leaves collect at my feet
And the wind begins to moan

Memory
All alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days
I was beautiful then
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again

Happiness runs in a circular motion
Thought is like a little boat upon the sea.
Everybody is a part of everything anyway,
You can have everything if you let yourself be.

Boat Drinks - Jimmy Buffett

Boat drinks
Boys in the band ordered boat drinks
Visitors scored on the home rink
Everything seems to be wrong
Lately, newspaper mentioned cheap air fare
I gotta to fly to Saint Somewhere
I'm close to bodily harm
Twenty degrees and the hockey game's on
Nobody cares they are way too far gone
Screamin' "boat drinks", something to keep 'em all warm

I pluralized it. You can't stop me!


"Cattle and the Creeping Things"
by The Hold Steady

She said: I was seeing double for 3 straight days
after I got born again
it felt strange but it was nice and peaceful.
It really pleased me to be around so many people.
Of course half were just visions
half of them were friend from going thru the program with me.
Later on we did some sexy things.
Took a couple photographs and carved them into wood reliefs.
But that's enough about me.
Tell me how you got down here into ybor city.
He said: I got thru the part about the exodus.
Up to then I only knew it was a movement of the people.
But if small town cops are like swarms of flies
And if blackened foil is like boils and hail,
Then I'm pretty sure we've been thru this before.

Zappa'a Man with the Woman Head:

A coil of ashes collected on the white-on-yellow dacs.
Four slender bones with rings and nails
endured the weight of a hard fast black rubber cigarette holder.
I could just make out Ace as he carried the tray and mouthed,
"You cheap son of a *****"
as a straw fell out of a Coke, cartwheeled into the gutter.
So this was a drive-in restaurant in Hollywood,
So this was a drive-in restaurant in Hollywood,

Elton John - The Weight of the World (My favorite "Weight song - The Weight by The Band unfortunately doesnt acually have the word "weight in it)

And the weight of the world is off my back
When we fell, we got up
And crawled out the cracks
Excuse me if I take some comfort in that
Happy today, happy to play
With the weight of the world off of my back

Humidity hangs like a curtain
Oh, it fogs up my glasses sometimes
You know I've still got my eyesight
These days I'm happy to see
A sunset instead of a line

"Holland, 1945" by Neutral Milk Hotal

And here's where your mother sleeps
And here is the room where your brothers were born
Indentions in the sheets
Where their bodies once moved but don't move anymore
And it's so sad to see the world agree
That they'd rather see their faces fill with flies
All when I'd want to keep white roses in their eyes

Wrong Way Feeling Bob Weir


Girl, you make me suspect there are certain delights
That might be news to me,
And I know at a glance you could show me all the sights

You're a queen of the elite, and a treat between the sheets,
But I wonder if it's all for free...

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me;
I am shielded in my armor,
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.
I touch no one and no one touches me.

I am an island.

And a rock feels no pain;
And an island never cries.

no one knows what its like, to be the bad man,
to be the sad man, behind blue eyes.
no one knows what its like, to be hated,
to be fated, to telling only lies.

but my dreams they aren't as empty,
as my concscience seems to be.
I have hours, only lonely.
My love is vengence, that's never free.

Into the magic night. I softly say

In dreams youre mine. all of the time were together
In dreams, in dreams.

Well, you don't know what we can find
Why don't you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride
You don't know what we can see
Why don't you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free
Close your eyes girl
Look inside girl

And so I wished that I could stay
Before the thing could answer me
Well, someone came and took the lamp away
I looked around, a lousy candle's all I found

"The Worms Crawl In" Traditional (?)

Did you ever think, as a hearse goes by,
That you might be the next to die?
They wrap you up in a big white sheet,
And bury you down about six feet deep

They put you in a big black box,
And cover you up with dirt and rocks,
And all goes well, for about a week,
And then the coffin begins to leak!

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout.
They eat your eyes, they eat your nose,
They eat the jelly between your toes.

Jelly by Blessed Union of Souls - I have NO clue what this is - never heard it - I had to look one up...

I saw our future in her eyes
We searched for love amidst the lies
I didn't mean to draw her in
To a fight we'll never win
And I sigh as...
She becomes like jelly in my hands
She told me things I never heard
And I just drank her every word
We swallow all that love can give
Cause love's the reason that we live
And I cry as...
She becomes like jelly in my hands

When he gets to the crowded subway platform he takes off both of his shoes
He steps right into somebody's fat loogie
And everyone who sees him says "ewwww"
Everyone who sees him says "ewwww"

But he doesn't care cause last night he got a visit from the Ghost of Corporate Future
The Ghost said take off both your shoes whatever chances you get
Especially when they're wet
He also said

Imagine you go away on a business trip one day
And when you come back home
Your children have grown
And you never made your wife moan

One more day
My heart's in armor
Though I meant to let you in
In an effort not to harm it
I have missed my chance again

I was singing when I freed you
But my pride was just a veil
I pretended not to need you
Now my heart tells a different tale

And every hour that goes by
The harder I become
Because I let that well run dry
Because I left you unanswered

Then like a fool I kept my secret
When it made no sense to try
Now I can no longer keep it
For it's late and the moon is high

In the future where will I be
You can climb a ladder up to the sun
Or a write a song nobody had sung
Or do something that's never been done
Do something that's never been done

So you don't know were you're going, and you wanna talk
And you feel like you're going where you've been before
You'll tell anyone who'll listen but you feel ignored

Language Of Love
Heart

I been trying a long long time
To write a love letter, perfect lines
What I want to say is hard to find
No cliches or tired rhymes
But words turn on me
Hard as I try
It's your look of love
I can't describe
I'll use the language of love
You'll understand what I say
Words are never enough
The language of love is the only way
Bad bad heartaches
When I'm alone
Fighting with feelings
I've never known
Scared and lonely
Half gone mad
'Cos I need what I just can't have
I write a love letter like a kiss in the night
I wanna tell it to you, just right
I'll use the language of love
You'll understand what I say
Words are never enough
The language of love is the only way
I need love so very bad
You're the best I ever had
I need to say I need to show
In the way only lovers know
I'll use the language of love
You'll understand what I say
Words are never enough
The language of love is the only way
I'll use the language of love
You'll understand what I say
Words are never enough
The language of love is the only way

With my China Girl
I feel a wreck without my
Little China Girl

Loud as thunder
Saw their stars crashing

I'm a mess without my

Wake up mornings where's my

I hear her heart's beating
Loud as thunder
Saw their stars crashing down

I feel a-tragic like I'm Marlon Brando
When I look at my china girl
I could pretend that nothing really meant too much
When I look at my china girl

I stumble into town just like a sacred cow
Visions of swastikas in my head
Plans for everyone
It's in the whites of my eyes

My little china girl
You shouldn't mess with me
I'll ruin everything you are
I'll give you television
I'll give you eyes of blue
I'll give you a man who want to rule the world

And when I get excited

Oh baby just you shut your mouth

We sit here stranded, though we're all doin' our best to deny it
And Louise holds a handful of rain, temptin' you to defy it
Lights flicker from the opposite loft
In this room the heat pipes just cough
The country music station plays soft
But there's nothing, really nothing to turn off
Just Louise and her lover so entwined
And these visions of Johanna that conquer my mind

Basket Case - Green Day

Do you have the time to listen to me whine
About nothing and everything all at once
I am one of those
Melodramatic fools
Neurotic to the bone
No doubt about it

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid?
Am I just stoned

I went to a shrink
To analyze my dreams
She says it's lack of sex that's bringing me down
I went to a whore
He said my life's a bore
So quit my whining cause it's bringing her down

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid?

Grasping to control
So I better hold on

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid?
Am I just stoned

MELANIE SAFKA

Look what they've done to my song, ma
Look what they've done to my song
Well it's the only thing that I could do half right
And it's turning out all wrong, ma
Look what they've done to my song.

Look what they've done to my brain, ma
Look what they've done to my brain
Well they picked it like a chicken bone
And I think I'm half insane, ma
Look what they've done to my song.

I wish I could find a good book to live in
Wish I could find a good book
Will if I cold find a real good book
I'd never have to come out and look
Look what they've done to my song.

It'll be all right ma, maybe it'll be okay
Well if the people are buying tears I'll be rich someday, ma
Look what they've done to my song.

Ils ont change ma chanson ma
Ils ont change ma chanson
C'est la seule chose que je peuz faire
Et ce n'est pas bon ma
Ils ont change ma chanson.

Look what they've done to my song, ma
Look what they've done to my song
Well they tied it up in a plastic bag and they turned it upside down
Look what they've done to my song, ma.

Look what they've done to my song, ma
Look what they've done to my song
It's the only thing I could do all right and they turned it upside down
Look what they've done to my song, ma.



This one has been playing in my head for about a half hour this morning, for some reason.

"Green Is The Colour" - Pink Floyd

Heavy hung the canopy of blue
Shade my eyes and I can see you
White is the light that shines through the dress that you wore
She lay in the shadow of the wave
Hazy were the visions of her playing
Sunlight on her eyes but moonshine beat her blind everytime
Green is the colour of her kind
Quickness of the eye deceives the mind
Many is the bond between the hopefull and the damned.

WHO, THE |

Mama's got a squeeze box she wears on her chest
And when Daddy comes home he never gets no rest
Cause she's playin' all night
And the music's all right

Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

Well the kids don't eat
And the dog can't sleep
There's no escape from the music
In the whole damn street
Cause she's playin' all night
And the music's all right

Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

She goes in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out
She's playin' all night
And the music's all right

Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

She goes squeeze me
Come on and squeeze me
Come on and tease me like you do
I'm so in love with you

Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

She goes in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out
Cause she's playin' all night
And the music's all right

Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night
(c) 2006 By SingulARtists Mama just want to play the squeeze box

Fall at your Feet

I'm really close tonight
And I feel like I'm moving inside her
Lying in the dark
I think that I'm beginning to know her
Let it go
I'll be there when you call

Whenever I fall at your feet
And you let your tears rain down on me
Whenever I touch your slow turning pain

You're hiding from me now
There's something in the way that you're talking
The words don't sound right
But I hear them all moving inside you
Go, I'll be waiting when you call

Whenever I fall at your feet
And you let your tears rain down on me
Whenever I touch your slow turning pain

The finger of blame has turned upon itself
And I'm more than willing to offer myself
Do you want my presence or need my help
Who knows where that might lead

I fall at your feet
And you let your tears rain down on me
Whenever I fall

In Hiding
Pearl Jam

I shut and locked the front door
No way in or out
I turned and walked the hallway
And pulled the curtains down
I knelt and emptied the mouth of every club around
But nothing's sound, nothing's sound

I'd stay but my last tab left me
Ignored all my rounds
Soon I was seeing visions and cracks along the walls
They were upside down

I swallow my words to keep from lying
I swallow my face just to keep from biting, I, I..
I swallowed my breath and went deep, I was diving, diving
I surfaced when all of my pen wasn't writing

I'm in hiding
I'm in hiding
I'm in hiding
I'm in hiding

It's been about three days now
Since I've been aground
No longer overwhelmed and it seems so simple now
It's funny when things change so much
It's all state of mind

I swallowed my words to keep from lying
I swallowed my face just to keep from biting I, I...
I swallowed my breath and went deep, I was diving, I was diving
I surfaced and all around me was enlightened
Now I'm in hiding
I'm in hiding
I'm in hiding
I'm in hiding

I'm in hiding
I'm in hiding
I'm in hiding
I'm in hiding

Ghost of a Chance - Billie Holiday

I need your love so badly
I love you oh so madly
But I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you

Ghost by the Indigo Girls
and there's not enough room
in this world for my pain
signals cross and love gets lost
and time passed makes it plain
of all my demon spirits
i need you the most
i'm in love with your ghost
i'm in love with your ghost
