What are the best song lyrics that you have ever heard?

Post them on here, so we can see what moves you...

One of my favorites:

There's a shadow just behind me/shrouding every step I take/making every promise empty/pointing every finger at me
Waiting like a stalking butler/who upon the finger rests/murder now the path called must we/just because the son has come
Jesus won't you f***ing whistle/something 'bout the past and done/Jesus won't you f***ing whistle something 'bout the past and done
Why can't we not be sober/just want to start things over/why can't we sleep forever/just want to start this over
I am just a worthless liar/I am just an imbecile/I will only complicate you/trust in me and fall as well/I will find a center in you/I will chew it up and leave/I will work to elevate you/just enough to bring you down
Mother Mary won't you whisper/something 'bout the past and done/Mother Mary won't you whisper/something 'bout the past and done
Why can't we not be sober/just want to start things over/why can't we drink forever/just want to start this over
I am just a worthless liar/I am just an imbecile/I will only complicate you/trust in me and fall as well/I will find a center in you/I will chew it up and leave
trust me/trust me/trust me/trust me
why can't we not be sober/just want to start things over/why can't we sleep forever/just want to start this over
I want what I want/I want what I want/I want what I want/I want what I want

"sober" by TOOL :D

WAR- Bob Marley

Until the philosophy which holds one race
Superior and another inferior
Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
Everywhere is war, me say war

That until there is no longer first class
And second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes
Me say war

That until the basic human rights are equally
Guaranteed to all, without regard to race
Dis a war

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace, world citizenship
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion
To be pursued, but never attained
Now everywhere is war, war

And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
That hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique,
South Africa sub-human bondage
Have been toppled, utterly destroyed
Well, everywhere is war, me say war

War in the east, war in the west
War up north, war down south
War, war, rumours of war

And until that day, the African continent
Will not know peace, we Africans will fight
We find it necessary and we know we shall win
As we are confident in the victory

Of good over evil, good over evil, good over evil
Good over evil, good over evil, good over evil

This song fits my life right now! It is the perfect lyric... (I'm not going to post the whole song, I just like this one line)

The Professor- Damien Rice


Loving is fine, if you have plenty of time
For walking on stilts at the edge of your mind!

Holiday - Green Day

Hear the sound of the falling rain
Coming down like an Armaggeddon flame
The shame
The ones who died without a name
Hear the dogs howling out of key
To a hymn called "Faith and Misery"
And bleed the company lost the war today

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives
On holiday

Hear the drum pounding out of time
Another protester has crossed the line
To find the money's on the other side
Can I get another Amen?
There's a flag wrapped around a score of men
A gag
A plastic bag on a monument

The representative of California has the floor
Zieg Heil to the President Gasman
Bombs away is your punishment
Pulverize the Eiffel Towers
Who criticize your government
Bang Bang goes the broken glass
Kill all the f*gs that don't agree
Trials by fire setting fires
Is not a way thats meant for me
Just cause - just cause we're outlaws yeah!

I begg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives
This is our lives on holiday

Deftones -- Lhabia


Somewhere outside there are tricks and evil,
Holler downstairs while I drive.

I make a plan just to get you back,
You're bored doing what a girl does.
I want to watch you think,
Think again deep within.
Keep it deep inside while I serenade buttercup,
And it's a bad curse and what you need to do is burn again and bow slow again.
And how we'll do it again and again to make the best of a simple thing,
To be like this bound coming through the fog.

Dying of bordom I'll try it all,
Sixteen olive, skin bound by a voice.

I bleed within like the girl that can make them turn,
Don't want to go but I want it.
Too much blood to my stomache its because it's sick,
Pass by you -- break the bands between us.
I can dare to go but I'd never.
What you're scared to do is what you get,
It's never what you want to get.
Now to pray, your sigh is over like a doped drug like a voice,
Well at least you ****ing care.

Dying of bordom I'll try it all,
I'll feel faint like a crook.

God it looks and feels great but look at what its doing to you,
That's okay cause look at how it feels.
Goodbye -- Goodbye -- Goodbye.

Burning down it starts to stir again,
****ing heretic I've opened up this for me.
Like to stare up? I'll stack the bricks down.
Hurt you doing much working around too,
I can punch it through.
But the hair sticks, don't want to hurt you -- just want to **** you.
I'm out of time so I'll let you rest some,
I'll rely on me and still you will be fine.

Dying of bordom I'll try it all,
I'll feel faint like a crook.

God it looks and feels great but look at what its doing to you,
That's okay cause look at how it feels.

Sorry if the lyrics offend you, didn't mean to make it a big deal -- they're very dark, but it's one of my favorite songs of all-time so I had to put it up here.

A Perfect Circle - Judith

You're such an inspiration for the ways
That I'll never ever choose to be
Oh so many ways for me to show you
How the savior has abandoned you
(F**k/Thank) your God
Your Lord, your Christ
He did this
Took all you had and
Left you this way
Still you pray, you never stray
Never taste of the fruit
You never thought to question why

It's not like you killed someone
It's not like you drove a hateful spear into his side
Praise the one who left you
Broken down and paralyzed
He did it all for you
He did it all for you

Oh so many many ways for me to show you
How your dogma has abandoned you
Pray to your Christ, to your god
Never taste of the fruit
Never stray, never break
Never---choke on a lie
Even though he's the one who did this to you
You never thought to question why

It's Not like you killed someone
It's Not like you drove a spiteful spear into his side
Talk to Jesus Christ
As if he knows the reasons why
He did it all for you
Did it all for you
He did it all for you



As to the profanity, it has also been written as "thank", so if you dont like profanity, thats what its saying

STORY OF MY LIFE by SOCIAL DISTORTION

High school seemed like such a blur,
I didn't have much interest in sports or
School elections.
And in class I dreamed all day,
About a rock 'n' roll weekend.
And the girl in the front of the room, so close yet so far y'know she never seemed
To notice
That this silly school-boy crush
Wasn't just pretend.
chorus:
Life goes by so fast, you only want to do what you think is right.
Close your eyes and then it's past;
(It's the) Story of my life.
And I went down to my old neighborhood,
The faces have all changed, there's no one left to talk to.
And the pool hall I loved as a kid
Is now a Seven Eleven.
I went downtown to look for a job,
I had no training, no experience to speak of.
I looked at the holes in my jeans
And turned and headed back.
chorus:
Life goes by so fast, you only want to do what you think is right.
Close your eyes and then it's past;
(It's the) Story of my life.
Good times come and good times go,
I only wish the good times would last a
Little longer.
I think about the good times we had
And why they had to end.
So I sit at the edge of my bed,
I strum my guitar and I sing an outlaw
love song.
Wonderin' bout what you're doin' now
And when you're comin' back.

Afternoon Delight
( Starland Vocal Band )

Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight
Gonna grab some afternoon delight
My motto's always been 'when it's right, it's right'
Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night?
When everything's a little clearer in the light of day
And we know the night is always gonna be there any way

Thinkin' of you's workin' up my appetite
Looking forward to a little afternoon delight
Rubbin' sticks and stones together makes the sparks ingite
And the thought of lovin' you is getting so exciting
Sky rockets in flight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight

Started out this morning feeling so polite
I always though a fish could not be caught who wouldn't bite
But you've got some bait a waitin' and I think I might try nibbling
A little afternoon delight
Sky rockets in flight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight

Please be waiting for me, baby, when I come around
We could make a lot of lovin' 'for the sun goes down

Thinkin' of you's workin' up my appetite
Looking forward to a little afternoon delight
Rubbin' sticks and stones together makes the sparks ingite
And the thought of lovin' you is getting so exciting
Sky rockets in flight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight

Afternoon delight!

Wow these are great! Thanks Broncology for putting a Deftones tune up here. their lyrics are the best.

Something has to change/an undeniable dillema/boredemn no a burden anyone should bear/
Constant over-stimulation numbs me/but I wouldn't want you any other way
It's not enough/I need more/nothing seems to satisfy/I don't want it/I just need it/To breath to feel to know I'm alive
Finger deep within the border-line/tell me that you love me and that we belong together/relax turn around and take my hand
Love can help you change tired moments into pleasure/say the word and we'll be well upon our way/A blend and balance of pain and comfort deep within you/'till you will not want me any other way
It's not enough/I need more/Nothing seems to satisfy/I don't want it/I just need it/To breath to feel to know I'm alive
Knuckle deep inside the border-line/This may hurt a little but it's something you'll get used to/relax turn away
There's something kind of sad about the way that things have come to be/desensitized to everything/what became of subtlety
But how could this mean anything to me/when I don't feel a thing at all/yet, but I'll keep digging/ 'till I feel something
Elbow deep within the border-line/show me that you love me and that we belong together/shoulder deep within the border-line/relax turn around and take my hand

Immortal Technique Leaving the past

[Verse 1]
They told me I would never make it, I would never achieve it
Reality is nurishment, but people don't believe it
I guess its hard to stomach the truth like a bulimick
its a dirty game and nobody is willing to clean it
But this is for the paralygics, people dreamin' of runnin'
ladies married to men who dont please 'em, dreamin' of comin'
urbanly murderous like David Berkowitz when I'm gunnin'
Some cowards on the internet didn't think I would sell
scared to talk **** in person, cuz they stuck in a shell
and couldn't understand the pain of being stuck in a cell
Hell is not a place you go, if you not a christian
it's the failure of your lifes greatest ambition
It's a bad decision to blindly follow any religion
I don't see the difference in between the raw and the wrong
Soldiers emptyin' the clips at little kids and they moms
I'm just like a desperate mother****er strapped to a bomb
Humanity is gone, smoked up in a gravity bong
by a democrat republican Cheech and Chong
Immortal Technique, you never heard me preachin' a song
I'm not controversial, I'm just speakin' the facts
Put your hands in the air like you got the heat to your back
and shake your body like a baby born addicted to crack
And since life is a gamble like the crabstables at Vegas
I freestyle my destiny, it's not written in pages

[Verse 2]
I hate it when they tell us how far we came to be
as if our peoples history started with slavery
Painfully I discovered the **** they kept us secret
this is the exodus like the black jews out of Egypt
I keep it reality based wit the music I make
brought the truth to your face with the style I run wit

Queen - "You Take My Breath Away"

Look into my eyes and youíll see Iím the only one
Youíve captured my love
Stolen my heart
Changed my life
Every time you make a move you destroy my mind
And the way you touch
I lose control and shiver........deep inside
You take my breath away

You can reduce me to tears with a single sigh
Evíry breath that you take
Any sound that you make is a whisper in my ear
I could give up all my life for just one kiss
I would surely die if you dismiss me from your love
You take my breath away

So please donít go
Donít leave me here all by myself
I get ever so lonely from time to time
I will find you anywhere you go
Iíll be right behind you
Right until the ends of the earth
Iíll get no sleep until I find you
To tell you that you just take my breath away

(solo)


I will find you anywhere you go
Right until the ends of the earth
Iíll get no sleep until I find you
To tell you when Iíve found you
I love you

Take my breath take my breath ... away

Thats how I feel, Im down and out, the pains so real
Cut off at the pass, nowhere to go, fading so fast
Once a shining star, a fall from grace, lights seem so far
away, from where i was, the place to be, all lost because
I over stepped my bounds, who was I to reach, Now im making rounds
with nowhere to go, friends all lost, just people seldom known
But as i try to hold, few that i have, just repeatedly told
Im just not tough, lacking all the skills, Ive finally had enough

So I snap,
Breakdown,
They say the sky is the limit
but Im shackled to the ground
I step back
I look around
Dont like what I see
Rip my chains from the ground
Take off
Until the end
F*ck being held back
It won't ever happen again
Because I've snapped

Left out in the cold, battered and bruised, this hand ready to fold
good times pass so fast, shadows linger on, seperated from the past
No family to be turned, through the years, all bridges burned
Attempt to recollect, all my thoughts, just cant connect
to memories past stored, just wonder on, venturing toward
a future unknown, feather in the wind, just being blown
well of the common track, society's ideals, this deck is stacked
Cant take anymore, prepared to die, I prepare for war

So I snap,
Breakdown,
They say the sky was is limit
but Im shackled to the ground
I step back
I look around
Dont like what I see
Rip my chains from the ground
Take off
Until the end
F*ck being held back
It... wont... ever...

SO I SNAP-
BREAKDOWN-
STEP BACK-
LOOK AROUND-
TAKE OFF-
TILL THE END-
TRY AND HOLD ME BACK B*TCH-
IT WONT EVER HAPPEN AGAIN......
BECAUSE IVE SNAPPED (snapped) (snapped) (snapped) (sn...)

Welcome Home (Sanitarium) - METALLICA

Welcome to where time stands still
no one leaves and no one will
Moon is full, never seems to change
just labeled mentally deranged
Dream the same thing every night
I see our freedom in my sight
No locked doors, No windows barred
No things to make my brain seem scarred

Sleep my friend and you will see
that dream is my reality
They keep me locked up in this cage
can't they see it's why my brain says Rage

Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Build my fear of what's out there
and cannot breathe the open air
Whisper things into my brain
assuring me that I'm insane
They think our heads are in their hands
but violent use brings violent plans
Keep him tied, it makes him well
he's getting better, can't you tell?


No more can they keep us in
Listen, damn it, we will win
They see it right, they see it well
but they think this saves us from our Hell

Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, just leave me alone
Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Fear of living on
natives getting restless now
Mutiny in the air
got some death to do
Mirror stares back hard
Kill, it's such a friendly word
seems the only way
for reaching out again.


Disposable Heroes - METALLICA

Bodies fill the fields I see, hungry heroes end
No one to play soldier now, no one to pretend
running blind through killing fields, bred to kill them all
Victim of what said should be
a servant `til I fall

Soldier boy, made of clay
now an empty shell
twenty one, only son
but he served us well
Bred to kill, not to care
just do as we say
finished here, Greeting Death
he's yours to take away

Back to the front
you will do what I say, when I say
Back to the front
you will die when I say, you must die
Back to the front
you coward
you servant
you blindman

Barking of machinegun fire, does nothing to me now
sounding of the clock that ticks, get used to it somehow
More a man, more stripes you bare, glory seeker trends
bodies fill the fields I see
the slaughter never ends

Soldier boy, made of clay
now an empty shell
twenty one, only son
but he served us well
Bred to kill, not to care
just do as we say
finished here, Greeting Death
he's yours to take away

Back to the front
you will do what I say, when I say
Back to the front
you will die when I say, you must die
Back to the front
you coward
you servant
you blindman

Why, Am I dying?
Kill, have no fear
Lie, live off lying
Hell, Hell is here


I was born for dying

Life planned out before my birth, nothing could I say
had no chance to see myself, moulded day by day
Looking back I realize, nothing have I done
left to die with only friend
Alone I clench my gun

Soldier boy, made of clay
now an empty shell
twenty one, only son
but he served us well
Bred to kill, not to care
just do as we say
finished here, Greeting Death
he's yours to take away

Back to the front
you will do what I say, when I say
Back to the front
you will die when I say, you must die
Back to the front
you coward
you servant
you blindman

Back to the front.

"There must be some way out of here" said the joker to the thief
"There's too much confusion", I can't get no relief
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.

"No reason to get excited", the thief he kindly spoke
"There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I, we've been through that, and this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late".

All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.

Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.

Of which I'll share with you, yeah!
My feet is my only carriage
And so I've got to push on through.
Oh, while I'm gone,
Everything's gonna be all right!
Everything's gonna be all right!

Today's on fire/the sky is bleeding above me/and I am blistered/I walk these lines of blasphemy every day/and still
Like a bad star/I'm falling faster down to her/she's the only one who knows what it is to burn
I feel diseased/Is there no sympathy from the sun/the sky's still fire but I am safe in here from the world outside/so tell me what's the price to pay for glory
Like a bad star/I'm falling faster down to her/she's the only one who knows what it is to burn
Today is fire/and she burns/today is fire/and she burns
She burns/she burns/she burns/she burns
Like a bad star/I'm falling faster down to her/She's the only one who knows what it is to burn

What it is to burn by Finch


And it's all in how you mix the two/and it starts just where the light exists/it's a feeling that you cannot miss/it burns a hole in everyone who feels it
Well you never gonna find it if your lookin' for it/won't come your way/wellyou'll never find it/if you're looking for it
Should have done something but I've done it enough/by the way your hands were shaking rather waste some time with you
And you never would have thought in the end/how amazing it feels just to live again/it's a feeling that you cannot miss/it burns a hole in everyone who feels it
Well you're never gonna find it if you're looking for it/won't come your way/well you never find it/if you're looking for it
Should have done something but I've done it enough/by the way your hands were shaking rather waste some time with you/Should have said something but I've said it enough/by the way my words were faded rather waste my time with you

I ain't no fortunate son, son, son

when peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
when sorrows like sea billows roll;
whatever my lot, thou has taught me to say,
it is well, it is well, with my soul.

the song was written by horatio spafford as the ship he was on passed through the area in which his daughters had died (shipwreck) a few weeks prior.

BBJ, we might as well promote the whole Around the Fur album if we're talking about relationship tunes. :rockon: -- It's a must have album for any true hard rock fan.

There is no artist quite yet, one day perhaps, when the songwriter gets out of law school. ;)

I'm diggin' my way/I'm diggin' my way to somethin'/I'm diggin' my way to somethin' better
I'm pushin' to stay/I'm pushin' to stay with somethin'/I'm pushin' to stay with somethin' better
I'm sowing the seeds/I'm sowing the seeds I've taken/I'm sowing the seeds I take for granted
This thorn in my side/this thorn in my side is from the tree/this thorn in my side is from the tree I've planted/It tears me and I bleed/and I bleed
Caught under wheels that roll/I take the leash/I'm bleeding me/can't stop to save my soul/I take the leash/I'm bleeding me/I'm bleeding me/Ooo I can't take it/caught under wheels that roll/the beeding of me
I am the beast that feeds the feast/I am the blood/I am released/come make me pure/bleed me a cure/I'm caught/I'm caught/I'm caught under
Caught under wheels that roll/I take the leash/I'm bleeding me/can't stop to save my soul/I take the leash/I'm bleeding me/I'm bleeding me/Ooo I can't take it/I can't take it/I can't take it/ooo the bleeding of me

One day you're going to have to face
A deep dark truthful mirror
And it's going to tell you things that I still love you too much to say
The sky was just a purple bruise, the ground was iron
And you fell all around the town until you looked the same

Chorus:

The same eyes, the same lips, the same lie from
your tongue trips
Deep dark, deep dark truthful mirror
Deep dark, deep dark truthful mirror

Now the flagstone streets where the newspaper shouts ring to the boots of roustabouts
But you're never in any doubt, there's something happening somewhere
You chase down the road 'til your fingers bleed
On a fiberglass tumbleweed
You can blow around the town, but it all shuts down the same

Chorus

So you bay for the boy in the tiger-skin trunks
They set him up, set him up on the stool
He falls down, falls down like a drunk
And you drink 'til you drool
And it's his story you'll flatter
You'll stretch him out like a saint
But the canvas that he splattered will be the
picture that you never paint

Chorus

A stripping puppet on a liquid stick gets into it pretty thick
A butterfly drinks a turtle's tears, but how do you know he really needs it?
'Cos a butterfly feeds on a dead monkey's hand,
Jesus wept he felt abandoned
You're spellbound baby there's no doubting that
Did you ever see a stare like a Persian cat?

Chorus

Life it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

Things are not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this canít be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now heís gone

No one but me can save myself, but itís too late
Now I canít think, think why I should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now I will just say good-bye

humanity is looking for itself
the ancient wisdom taken from the shelf
a light so dark a heaven that is hell

in the new age
could it already be
in the new age
through the haze I can see
in the new age
could it happen to me
in the new age

the trap is open no one even cares
the well-disguised one hidden in their stares
disguise your lying words with love
depending on the good of man
the truth the symbol of a dove
will unmask the maker of your plans

in the new age
i see the blind lead the blind
in the new age
in the search for the mind
in the new age
but I know what they'll find

King's X - "In The New Age"



I can't believe summer's almost here
I made it through another year even if alone
but there's no tears in my eyes
life is still full of surprise
I'm not looking for a one night stand
I stand behind you and I watch you from a mile away
wishing you could be the one but not here this way

I'd like to know your name
and I must know who you are Yeah

I look at you and I know who you are
you're just a little bit too far from my home
but please don't get me wrong even though it has been long
I hope I never sing my last song without someone

I'd like to know your name
and I must know who you are Yeah

I stand behind you and I watch you from a mile away
wishing you could be the one but not here this way
I'd like to know your name
and I must know who you are Yeah

King's X - "Goldilox"



this is war
this is peace
quiet roars
of silent screams
it makes me think
it makes me deal
with the situation
how do i feel?

There's a wall between us
a partition of sorts
and it makes me wonder
there's a sign ahead
says it's gonna be okay
and it makes me wonder

should I go to the front?
or should I go to the back?
should I just pray?
or should I attack?

this is church
this is state
rock-n-roll
amazing grace
it makes me think
it makes me deal
with the situation
how do i feel?

There's a wall between us
a partition of sorts
and it makes me wonder
there's a sign ahead
says it's gonna be okay
and it makes me wonder

should I go to the front?
or should I go to the back?
should I just pray?
or should I attack?

...and it makes me wonder.......

King's X - "Wonder"





everybody knows a little bit
the time for playing innocence is over
ignorance is a road that leads to trouble
wisdom is a treasure born in heaven
those who find her have a precious something
now everyone's entitled to his own opinion
criticism without knowledge
much is learned from small beginnings
much forgotten causing folly
this love i found is covered in forgiving
everyday there's hope for the future
before i sing these words out of being
let me take the time to say i love you
i saw the man stare in silence
why can't he be honest with who he wants to believe
a cry for help was written on the cover of the magazine
and i know what it means

King's X - "Everybody Knows A Little Bit of Something"



simple words i have in mind
nothing more between the lines
i have heard that love is blind
if its true then i will find

i'll never get tired of you
oh no oh yeah
never never i'll never get tired of you

from my heart i want to say
but the words get in the way
millions of ways to say the same
even though the feelings change

i'll never get tired of you
oh no oh yeah
never never i never get tired of you

because i love you

King's X - "i'll never get tired of you"
(quite possibly the greates rock ballad that no one has ever heard. Beautiful lyrics, and brilliant musicianship).

Really? If you say you heard it on the radio, I will be shocked.

That whole album sounds much better with a serious sound system, or good heaphones. Those 12 string bass chords get buried otherwise.

That album was a change in sound for them. New producer, very live and raw in the studio. Very bass heavy. I like it, but it took a while to grow on me.

give me a dollar or give me 50 cents
let me take it back if that ain't what I meant
give me a coat or give me a bite
give me a light bulb and make sure it's bright
give me the moon or give me everywhere
give me some powder to spray up in the air (up in the air)

let me take my thoughts away to think about another day
remembering the times I pray to help me deal with me
to be the dogman

give me some attention lend me your ear
give me what to do and get me out of here
give me a book give me something to read
give me a horse race and give me who's the lead

let me take my thoughts away to think about another day
remembering the times I pray to help me deal with me
to be the dogman

all the sleeping never waking all the leaves in need of raking
all the business undertaking all my bones and muscles aching
thoughts and mind are surely flaking over
luncheons hands are shaking
surety of no mistaking cars and horns and glass is breaking

give me a color make it black or white
give me a newspaper tell me if it's right
give me a nail or give me a bat
give me a skinny or give me a fat

remembering the times I pray to let me take mythoughts away
to think about another day to help me deal with me
to be the dogman

The best lyrics that I think ever wrote are words we could all live by.

Garth Brooks - We Shall Be Free

This ain't coming from no prophet
Just an ordinary man
When I close my eyes I see
The way this world shall be
When we all walk hand in hand

When the last child cries for a crust of bread
When the last man dies for just words that he said
When there's shelter over the poorest head
We shall be free

When the last thing we notice is the color of skin
And the first thing we look for is the beauty within
When the skies and the oceans are clean again
We shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, walk proud
'Cause we shall be free

When we're free to love anyone we choose
When this world's big enough for all different views
When we all can worship from our own kind of pew
We shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Have a little faith
Hold out
'Cause we shall be free

And when money talks for the very last time
And nobody walks a step behind
When there's only one race and that's mankind
Then we shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, walk proud, have a little faith, hold out
We shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, have a little faith
We shall be free

There are many other songs that I could recite but this one takes the prize in my book.

Well done Garth :beer:

BBJ i would have thought you'd have gone with this:


Big Bad John

-Artist: Jimmy Dean
-the # 14 song of the 1960-1969 rock era
-was # 1 for 5 weeks in 1961
-Words and Music by Jimmy Dean


(Big John, Big John)
Ev'ry mornin' at the mine you could see him arrive
He stood six foot six and weighed two forty five
Kinda broad at the shoulder and narrow at the hip
And everybody knew ya didn't give no lip to Big John.
(Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John)

Nobody seemed to know where John called home
He just drifted into town and stayed all alone
He didn't say much, kinda quiet and shy
And if you spoke at all, you just said "Hi" to Big John.

Somebody said he came from New Orleans
Where he got in a fight over a Cajun Queen
And a crashin' blow from a huge right hand
Sent a Loosiana fellow to the Promised Land-Big John
(Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John)

Then came the day at the bottom of the mine
When a timber cracked and men started cryin'
Miners were prayin' and hearts beat fast
And everybody thought that they'd breathed their last-'cept John

Through the dust and the smoke of this man-made hell
Walked a giant of a man that the miners knew well
Grabbed a saggin' timber, gave out with a groan
And like a giant oak tree he just stood there alone-Big John
(Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John)

And with all of his strength he gave a mighty shove
Then a miner yelled out "There's a light up above!"
And twenty men scrambled from a would-be grave
Now there's only one left down there to save-Big John

With jacks and timbers they started back down
Then came that rumble way down in the ground
And then smoke and gas belched out of that mine
Everybody knew it was the end of the line for Big John
(Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John)

Now they never reopened that worthless pit
They just placed a marble stand in front of it
These few words are written on that stand
**At the bottom of this mine lies a BIG BIG man** Big John
(Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John)

FADE (Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John)

**TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: The 45-single version has this line as "At the bottom of this mine
lies a hell of a man."

thinking about the song "big bad john" reminded me of a couple of other story songs i like:

ODE TO BILLY JOE
(Bobbie Gentry)
© Northridge Music Company / Universal MCA Publishing.
From "Ode To Billy Joe," Bobby Gentry, © 1967, Capitol.

It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta day.
I was out chopping cotton and my brother was baling hay.
And at dinnertime we stopped and walked back to the house to eat.
And Mama hollered out the back door "y'all remember to wipe your feet,"
And then she said "I got some news this morning from Choctaw Ridge,"
"Today, Billy Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge."

And Papa said to Mama as he passed around the black-eyed peas:
"Well, Billy Joe never had a lick of sense; pass the biscuits, please."
"There's five more acres in the lower forty I've got to plow."
And Mama said it was a shame about Billy Joe, anyhow.
Seems like nothing ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge.
And now Billy Joe MacAllister's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge.

And brother said he recollected when he and Tom and Billie Joe,
Had put a frog down my back at the Carroll County picture show.
And wasn't I talking to him after church last Sunday night?
"I'll have another piece of apple pie; you know it don't seem right.
"I saw him at the sawmill yesterday on Choctaw Ridge,
"And now you tell me Billie Joe's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge."

And Mama said to me: "Child, what's happened to your appetite?
"I've been cooking all morning and you haven't touched a single bite.
"That nice young preacher, Brother Taylor, dropped by today.
"Said he'd be pleased to have dinner on Sunday, oh, by the way.
"He said he saw a girl that looked a lot like you up on Choctaw Ridge.
"And she and Billy Joe was throwing something off the Tallahatchie Bridge."

A year has come and gone since we heard the news 'bout Billy Joe,
And brother married Becky Thompson, they bought a store in Tupelo.
There was a virus going 'round, Papa caught it and he died last Spring.
And now Mama doesn't seem to wanna do much of anything.
And me, I spend a lot of time picking flowers up on Choctaw Ridge.
And drop them into the muddy water off the Tallahatchie Bridge.

16 Tons - Tennesee Ernie Ford
Some people say a man is made outta' mud
A poor man's made outta' muscle and blood
Muscle and blood and skin and bones
A mind that's a-weak and a back that's strong

You load sixteen tons, what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store

I was born one mornin' when the sun didn't shine
I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine
I loaded sixteen tons of number 9 coal
And the store boss said "Well, a-bless my soul"

You load sixteen tons, what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter, don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store

I was born one mornin', it was drizzlin' rain
Fightin' and trouble are my middle name
I was raised in the canebrake by an ol' mama lion
Cain't no-a high-toned woman make me walk the line

You load sixteen tons, what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter, don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store

If you see me comin', better step aside
A lotta men didn't, a lotta men died
One fist of iron, the other of steel
If the right one don't a-get you, then the left one will

You load sixteen tons, what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter, don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store.

New blood joins this earth/and quickly he's subdued/through constant pained disgrace/the young boy learns their rules
With time this child draws in/this whipping boy has done no wrong/deprived of all his thoughts/the young man struggles on and on he's known/a vow unto his own/that never from this day/his will they'll take away
What I've felt/what I've known/never shined through in what I've shown/never be/never see/won't see what might have been
What I've felt/what I've known/never shined through in what I've shown/never free/never be/so I dub thee unforgiven
They dedicate their lives to running all of his/he tries to please them all/this bitter man he is/throughout his life the same/he's battled constantly/this fight he cannot win/the tired man they see no longer cares/the old man then prepares to die regretfully/that old man here is me
What I've felt/what I've known/never shined through in what I've shown/never be/never see/won't see what might have been
What I've felt/what I've known/never shined through in what I've shown/never free/never be/so I dub thee unforgiven
You labeled me I'll label you/so I dub thee unforgiven

--- Angel came down from heaven yesterday
She stayed with me just long enough to rescue me
And she told me a story yesterday,
about the sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea
And then she spread her wings high over me
She said she's gonna come back tomorrow
And I said 'fly on my sweet angel,
fly on through the sky,
fly on my sweet angel,
tomorrow I'm gonna be by your side'
Sure enough this morning came unto me
Silver wings silhouetted against the child's sunrise
And my angel she said unto me
'today is the day for you to ride,
take my hand, you're gonna be my man,
you're gonna ride'
And she took me high over yonder
And I said 'fly on my sweet angel,
fly on through the sky,
fly on my sweet angel,
forever I will be by your side'

Nothing can harm me at all
My worries seem so very small
With my waterfall
I can see
My rainbow calling me
Through the misty breeze
Of my waterfall
Some people say
Day-dreamings for all the, huh,
Lazy minded fools
With nothin' else to do
So let them laugh, laugh at me
So just as long as I have you
To see me through
I have nothing to lose
'Long as I have you

Don't ever change your ways
Fall with me for a million days
Oh, my waterfall

So down and down and down and down
And down and down we go
Hurry my darling we mustn't be late

That man is full of cheer
I could hear that man is full of cheer

Just like always (Still I want some more)
Mirror is sideways (Who cares what's behind)
Just like always (Still I want some more)

Chrome buttons, buckles and (leather surfaces)
these and other (lucky witnesses)
Now to hold on (This time won't you please)
Drive faster

Roll the window down the cool night air is curious
let the whole world look in who cares who sees anything

Great stuff guys!

One of my favorites. Deadly Earnest wrote it, but I lived it!

Dedicated to BOOHER

Well, I've tried to see your side
Have you ever looked at mine?
You think things are different,
but they're not.
I've told you every story of my life
a thousand times.
I guess you wanna hear a different tune.

Well, I turned my cheek when
you hit me close to home.
Just 'cause I'm proud
don't mean a thing.
We've made it this far
it's too late to turn back now
I'm gonna let you
walk on out that door.

Well, there's no doubt about it
I think our Love has faded
there's dark clouds gathering overhead
There's no doubt about it
you can't see one thing my way
you oughta try it your way instead!

Well, we've been married for six years
been happy two or three
ain't too much I'd do different even now!
So goodbye bad luck and hard times
go find another guy
'cause this one's walking down the line!

So Goodbye Maria
may the years be good to you
we'll both feel better
after a while
you go your way, honey
and I'll go mine
we'll both do better
on down the line!

Well there's no doubt about it
i think our Love has faded
there's dark clouds gathering overhead
No doubt about it
you can't see one thing my way
you oughta try it your way instead!

It's all the same
only the names will change
every day, it seems we're wastin' away
another place
where the faces are so cold
I drive all night just to get back home

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted, dead or alive

Sometimes I sleep
sometimes it's not for days
the people I meet, always go their seperate ways
sometimes you tell the day by the bottle that you drink
sometimes when you're alone
all you do is think

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted, dead or alive
wanted, dead or alive
alright...

I walk these streets
a loaded six string on my back
I play for keeps, 'cause I might ot make it back
I've been everywhere
still I'm standin' tall
I've seen a million faces
and I've rocked them all

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted, dead or alive
wanted, dead or alive
I'm a cowboy, I've got the night on my side
I'm wanted, dead or alive
yeah alright, dead or alive
I still jive, dead or alive
dead or alive, dead or alive
dead or aliiiiiiiihiiiiiiiiiive.......

I see a bad moon risin'
I know trouble's on the way
I feel earthquakes and lightnin'
I see bad times ahead

Don't go out tonight
it's bound to take your life
there's a bad moon on the rise

Hope you've got your things together
hope you are quite prepared to die
looks like we're in for nasty weather
one eye is taken for an eye

Don't go out tonight
it's bound to take your life
there's abad moon on the rise

Don't go out tonight
it's bound to take your life
there's a bad moon on the rise

You take a mortal man, and put him in control,
watch him become a god, watch people's heads a-roll
(a-roll, a-roooooooolllll)
Just like the pied piper led rats through the streets,
dance like marionettes, swaying to the symphony of destruction,

Acting like a robot, it's metal brain corrodes,
you try to take it's boss, before the head expodes,
(explodes, exploooooooooodes)
Just like the pied piper led rats through the streets,
dance like marionettes, swaying to the symphony of destruction,

The earth starts to rumble, world powers fall,
a warring for the heavens, a peaceful man stands tall,
(so tall, so taaaaaaallllll)
Just like the pied piper led rats through the streets,
dance like marionettes, swaying to the symphony
swaying to the symphony of destructon...

I was standing by the Nile
Whe I saw the lady smile.
I would take her out for a while,
For a while. Light tears wept like a child.
How her golden hair was blowing wild.
Then she spread her wings to fly,
For to fly. Soaring high above the breezes,
Going always where she pleases.
She will make it to the island in the sun.
I will follow in her shadow
As I watch her from my window.
One day I will catch her eye. She is calling from the deep,
Summoning my soul to endless sleep.
She is bound to drag me down,
Drag me down.

Is it getting better?
or do you feel the same?
Will it make it any easier on you now you've got someone to blame?

They say one love
one life
when it's one need
in the night
one love
you get to share it
leaves you baby if you don't care for it

Did I dissappoint you?
and leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
and you want me to go without
Did I ask too much?
more than alot?
You gave me nothing now it's all I've got
we're one
but we're not the same
we've got to carry eachother carry eachother
one

Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus
to the lepers in your head
Well it's too late
tonight
to bring the past out into the light
we're one
but we're not the same
well we hurt eachother and we do it again
you say
love is a temple
love a higher law
love is a temple
love the higher law
well you ask me to enter
then you make me crawl
and I can't be holdin' on
to what you've got
when all you've got is hurt

One love
one blood
one life you got to do what you should
one life
with eachother
sisters
brothers
one life but we're not the same
we've got to carry eachother carry eachother

--- Sitting on a park bench ---
eyeing little girls with bad intent.
Snot running down his nose ---
greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes.
Drying in the cold sun ---
Watching as the frilly panties run.
Feeling like a dead duck ---
spitting out pieces of his broken luck.

Sun streaking cold ---
an old man wandering lonely.
Taking time
the only way he knows.
Leg hurting bad,
as he bends to pick a dog-end ---
he goes down to the bog
and warms his feet.

Feeling alone ---
the army's up the rode
salvation a la mode and
a cup of tea.
Aqualung my friend ---
don't start away uneasy
you poor old sod, you see, it's only me.
Do you still remember
December's foggy freeze ---
when the ice that
clings on to your beard is
screaming agony.
And you snatch your rattling last breaths
with deep-sea-diver sounds,
and the flowers bloom like
madness in the spring.

I don't know how this whole business started
Of you thinking that I have been untrue
But if you think that we'd be better parted
It's gonna hurt me but I'd break away from you
Well just give me the sign and I will be gone

That's how much I feel for you baby
How much well I need your touch
How much I live I live for your loving
That's how much that's how much that's how much

Sleep alone and late at night I am dreaming
Of the togetherness that seems to leaving me oh no
It ain't long then I kiss some more
If you'll only love me like you have before
Ahh take hold of my hand I will be forgiven

That's how much I feel feel for you baby
How much I need your touch
How much I live for your loving
That's how much that's how much that's how much

So you try to stay in the middle
And then cry - cry just a little
Then we both realize how foolish you been
I've been trying to make amends
But your pulling all the strings
'Cause that's how much - that's how much
That's how much

How's your life been going on
I got a wife now years we been going strong
Oh no there's just something I got to say
Sometimes when we make love I still see your face
Just try to recall when we were as one yeah

That's how much I feel for you baby
How much I need I need your touch
How much I live I live for your loving


Yes, it's an Ambrosia tune. Deal with it. I am feeling down tonight.

Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
stealing many a man's soul in vain
I was around when Jesus Christ had his moment of doubt and pain
made damned sure the pilot washed his hands and sealed his fate

Pleased to meet you
hope you guess my name
but what's puzzlin' you
is the nature of my game

I stuck around St. Petersburgh
when I saw it was a time for a change
I killed the czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain
I rolled a tank, held a generals rank
when the Blitzkreig reigned and the bodies stank

Pleased to meet you
hope you guess my name
but what's puzzlin' you
is the nature of my game

I walked with glee while your kings and queens
fell for ten decades for the gods they made
I shouted out who killed the Kennedy's
when after all it was you and me
let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
and I've laid tracks for trubedours
who got killed before they reached Bombay

Please to meeet you
hope you guess my name
but what's puzzlin' you
is the nature of my game

Just as every cop is a criminal
and all the sinners saints
If heads is tails just call me Lucifer
'cause I'm in need of some restraint
if you meet me
have some courtesy
have some sympathy
and some taste
use all your well learned politics
or I'll lay your soul to waste

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 hand

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're decided
To show me the same
No sweeping exits
Or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter
Or treat you unkind

I know I've dreamed you
A sin n' a lie
I have my freedom
But I dont 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
Couldn't drag me away

I can't sing, I ain't pretty and my legs are thin
But don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to

Oh well

Now, when I talked to God I knew he'd understand
He said, "Stick by my side and I'll be your guiding hand
But don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to"

How would I know, why should I care
Please donít bother trying to find her
Sheís not there...oh oh oh

Nobody told me about her
What could I do
Well, nobody told me about her
Though they all knew

Well, itís too late to say youíre sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please donít bother trying to find her

The way she acted, the color of her hair
Her voice is soft and cool
Her eyes are clear and bright
But sheís not there...

Comfortably Numb (Gilmour, Waters) 6:49

Hello?
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone at home?
Come on, now,
I hear you're feeling down.
Well I can ease your pain
Get you on your feet again.
Relax.
I'll need some information first.
Just the basic facts.
Can you show me where it hurts?

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

O.K.
Just a little pinprick.
There'll be no more aaaaaaaaah!
But you may feel a little sick.
Can you stand up?
I do believe it's working, good.
That'll keep you going through the show
Come on it's time to go.

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying.
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.

(These guys were missing)

One man come in the name of love
one man come and go
one man come he to justify
one man to overthrow

In the name of love
one more in the name of love
in the name of love
one more in the name of love

One man caught on a barbed wire fence
one man he resist
one man washed on an empty beach
one man betrayed with a kiss

In the name of love
one more in the name of love
in the name of love
one more in the name of love

Early morning April four
a shot rings out in the memphis sky
three blasts that took your life
they could not take your pride

In the name of love
one more in the name of love
in the name of love
one more in the name of love

And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see

Well i won't be afraid

Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So darling, darling stand by me
Won't you stand by me
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

When the sky that we look upon
Tumble and falls
And the mountains crumble to the sea

I wont cry, i won't cry

Alone

wide awake like snakes in a panic
never woke up alone ever before
had his woman long as he can remember
tries to forget, but he can't, he can't...

out of bed and he dreams in the shower
she's standing naked, he's apologizing
reaches for her and the water turns red hot
woken up to be burned, burned, again...

go it alone
you gotta let it go
got his knees to his face
he can't take it any other way

on the streets he's a-walkin', wounded
having nothing, he's got nothing to say
thoughts of suicide and alleviation
anything to get his heart off of the coals

go it alone
you got it, so it goes
got his knees to his face
he can't take it for another day, yeah yeah...

wide awake and he shakes in a panic
never woke up alone ever before
had his woman long as he can remember
sears to forget, but he can't, he can't...




Grievance

have a drink, they're buying
bottom of, bottle of denial

big guy, big eye, watchin me
have to wonder what it sees
progress laced with ramifications
freedom's big plunge

pull the innocent from a crowd
raise the sticks then bring em down
if they fail to obey
oh if they fail to obey

for every tool they lend us
a loss of independence

i pledge my grievance to the flag
cause you don't give blood then take it back again
oh we're all deserving something more
progress, taste it, invest-it-all
champagne breakfast for everyone

break the innocent when they're proud
raise the stakes then bring em down
if they fail to obey
oh if they fail to obey

pledge your grievance to the flag
aw c'mon, don't give blood then take it back again
oh we're all deserving something more
(have a, have a, drink, drink...)
(have a, have a, drink, drink...)

i want to breathe
follow the scene
i want to taste
everyone i see
i want to run when i'm up high
i want to run into the sea
i only want life to be...
i just want to be...
i will feel alive as long as i am free...

Think about it, there must be higher love
Down in the heart or hidden in the stars above
Without it, life is a wasted time
Look inside your heart, Iíll look inside mine
Things look so bad everywhere
In this whole world, what is fair?
We walk blind and we try to see
Falling behind in what could be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Whereís that higher love I keep thinking of?

Worlds are turning and weíre just hanging on
Facing our fear and standing out there alone
A yearning, and itís real to me
There must be someone whoís feeling for me
Things look so bad everywhere
In this whole world, what is fair?
We walk blind and we try to see
Falling behind in what could be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Whereís that higher love I keep thinking of?

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring be a higher love
I could rise above on a higher love

I will wait for it
Iím not too late for it
Until then, Iíll sing my song
To cheer the night along
Bring it...oh bring it...

I could light the night up with my soul on fire
I could make the sun shine from pure desire
Let me feel that love come over me
Let me feel how strong it could be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Whereís that higher love I keep thinking of?

I donít know how to leave you
And I donít know how to stay
Iíve got things that I must tell you
That I donít know how to say

The man behind these empty words
Is crying out in shame
Holding on to this sinking ship
When nothing else remains

All I want is everything
Am I asking too much?
All I want is everything
Like the feel of your touch
But all I have are yesterdays
Tomorrow never comes

Itís hard to hold your head up
When youíre kneeling down to pray
And the talking dooesnít come easy now
When the words get in the way
And if you could see whatís going on
Behind these private eyes
The truth would look so easy now
But Iím running out of lies

You think the shadow of doubt
Is hanginí over my head
Itís just an angel whose wings hide the sun
And itís myself I betray
I can not wish this away
Took my chance now the damage is done

All I want is everything
Am I asking too much?
All I want is everything
Like the feel, the feel of your touch
When all I have are yesterdays
Tomorrow never comes

Just waking up in the morning gotta thank God
I don't know but today seems kinda odd
No barking from the dog, no smog
And momma cooked a breakfast with no hog
I got my grub on, but didn't pig out
Finally got a call from a girl wanna dig out
Hooked it up for later as I hit the dough
Thinking will i live, another twenty-fo'
I gotta go cause I got me a drop top
And if I hit the switch, I can make the ass drop
Had to stop at a red light
Looking in my mirror not a jacker in sight
And everything is alright
I got a beep from Kim and she can **** all night
Called up the homies and I'm askin y'all
Which park, are y'all playin basketball?
Get me on the court and I'm trouble
Last week ****ed around and got a triple double
Freaking [size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size]z every way like M.J.
I can't believe, today was a good day

Drove to the pad and hit the showers
Didn't even get no static from the cowards
Cause just yesterday them fools tried to blast me
Saw the police and they rolled right past me
No flexin, didn't even look in a [size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size]z direction
as I ran the intersection
Went to Short Dog's house, they was watchin YO! MTV Raps
What's the haps on the craps
Shake em up, shake em up, shake em up, shake em
Roll em in a circle of [size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size]z and watch me break em
With the seven, seven-eleven, seven-eleven
Seven even back do' little Joe
I picked up the cash flow
Then we played bones, and I'm yellin domino
Plus nobody I know got killed in South Central L.A.
Today was a good day

Left my [size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size][size=1][COLOR="#FFFFFF"]_[/COLOR][/size]z house paid
Picked up a girl been tryin to **** since the twelve grade
It's ironic, I had the brew she had the chronic
The Lakers beat the Supersonics
I felt on the big fat fanny
Pulled out the jammy, and killed the punanny
And my **** runs deep, so deep, so deep
put her ass to sleep
Woke her up around one
she didn't hesitate, to call Ice Cube the top gun
Drove her to the pad and I'm coasting
Took another sip of the potion hit the three-wheel motion
I was glad everything had worked out
Dropped her ass off, then I chirped out
Today was like one of those fly dreams
Didn't even see a berry flashing those high beams
No helicopter looking for a murder
Two in the morning got the fat burger
Even saw the lights of the Goodyear Blimp
And it read Ice Cube's a pimp
Drunk as hell but no throwing up
Half way home and my pager still blowing up
Today I didn't even have to use my A.K.
I got to say it was a good day.

Can't you see how easily you're bothered by persisitence
one step from lashing out at you
you want in, to get under my skin and call yourself a friend
I've got more friends like you, what do I do?
is there no standard anymore?
what it takes
who I am
where I've been
belong

You can't be something you're not
be yourself by yourself
stay away from me
a lesson learned in life
known from the dawn of time

Re-spect walk
whatta ya' say?
Re-spect walk
are you talkin' to me?

Run your mouth when I'm not around
it's easy to achieve
you cry to weak friends that sympathize
can't you hear their violins playing your song
those same friends tell me your every word
is there no standard anymore?
what it takes
who I am
where I've been
belong
you can't be something you're not
be yourself
by yourself
stay away from me
a lesson learned in life
known from the dawn of time

Re-spect walk

Re-spect walk
are you talkin' to me?

Walking through forests of palm tree apartments ---
scoff at the monkeys who live in their dark tents
down by the waterhole --- drunk every Friday ---
eating their nuts --- saving their raisins for Sunday.
Lions and tigers who wait in the shadows ---
they're fast but they're lazy, and sleep in green meadows.
Let's bungle in the jungle --- well, that's all right by me.
I'm a tiger when I want love,
but I'm a snake if we disagree.
Just say a word and the boys will be right there:
with claws at your back to send a chill through the night air.
Is it so frightening to have me at your shoulder?
Thunder and lightning couldn't be bolder.
I'll write on your tombstone, ``I thank you for dinner.''
This game that we animals play is a winner.
Let's bungle in the jungle --- well, that's all right by me.
I'm a tiger when I want love,
but I'm a snake if we disagree.
The rivers are full of crocodile nasties
and He who made kittens put snakes in the grass.
He's a lover of life but a player of pawns ---
yes, the King on His sunset lies waiting for dawn
to light up His Jungle
as play is resumed.
The monkeys seem willing to strike up the tune.

DROPKICK MURPHYS LYRICS

"Tessie"

Tessie is the Royal Rooters rally cry
Tessie is the tune they always sung
Tessie echoed April through October nights
After serenading Stahl, Dinneen and Young
Tessie is a maiden with a sparkling eye
Tessie is a maiden with a love
She doesn't know the meaning of her sight
She's got a comment full of love
And sometimes when the game is on the line
Tessie always carried them away
Up the road from third base to Huntington
The boys will always sing and sway

Two! Three! Four!

Tessie, Nuff Said McGreevey shouted
We're not here to mess around
Boston, you know we love you madly
Hear the crowd roar to your sound
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn't live without you
Tessie, you are the only only only

The Rooters showed up at the grounds one day
They found their seats had all been sold
McGreevey led the charge into the park
Stormed the gates and put the game on hold
The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
Boston's tenth man could not be wrong
Up from third base to Huntington
They'd sing another victory song

Two! Three! Four!

Tessie, Nuff Said McGreevey shouted
We're not here to mess around
Boston, you know we love you madly
Hear the crowd roar to your sound
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn't live without you
Tessie, you are the only only only

The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
Boston's tenth man could not be wrong
Up from third base to Huntington
They'd sing another victory song

Two! Three! Four!

Tessie, Nuff Said McGreevey shouted
We're not here to mess around
Boston, you know we love you madly
Hear the crowd roar to your sound
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn't live without you
Boston, you are the only only only
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn't live without you
Red Sox, you are the only only only

This is my new favorite song.

Hey you
big star
tell me
when it's over

hey you
big mood
guide me
to shelter
'cause I'm through
when the 2
hits the 6
and it's summer

cloud
come (shove it, shove it)
shove (shove it, shove it)
the sun (shove it, shove it)
aside

I think God is moving it's tongue
there's no clouds on the street
and no sun

the shade
is a tool
a device
a savior
see I try
and look up
to the sky
but my eyes burn

cloud
come (shove it, shove it)
shove (shove it, shove it)
the sun (shove it, shove it) aside

I think God is moving it's tongue
there's no clouds on the street
and no sun

in my own summer

come (shove it, shove it)
shove (shove it, shove it)
the sun (shove it, shove it)
aside (shove it aside)

This is sung to the tone of the Ozzie Ozbourne song. My friend made this up:

I am afro man,
Running away from the Klu Klux Klan.

They have baseball bats,
Big white coats and
Pointy hats.

I am still living with your ghost
lonely and dreamin' of the west coast
I don't wanna be your down time
I don't wanna be your stupid game

with my big black boots and an old suitcase
I do believe I'll find myself a new place
I don't wanna be the bad guy
I don't wanna do your sleep-walk dance anymore
I just wanna see some palm trees
i will try to shake away this disease

We can live beside the ocean
leave the fire behind
swim out past the breaker
watch the world die

I am still dreamin' of your face
hungry and hollow for all the things you took away
I don't wanna be your good time
I don't wanna be your fall back crutch anymore
walk right out into a brand new day
insane arising in my own wierd way
I don't wanna be the bad guy
I don't wanna do your sleep-walk dance anymore
I just wanna feel some sun-shine
I just wanna find some place to be alone

we can live beside the ocean
leave the fire behind
swim out past the breaker
watch the world die

we can live beside the ocean
leave the fire behind
swim out past the breaker
watch the worl die
yeah, watch the world die
watch the world die

Five for Fighting
100 Years

I'm 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

I'm 22 for a moment
She feels better than ever
And we're on fire
Making our way back from Mars

15Ö there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
15Öthere's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to liveÖ

I'm 33 for a moment
Still the man but you see I'm a they
A kid on the way
A family on my mind

I'm 45 for a moment
The sea is high
And I'm heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life

15Ö there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose yourself
Within a morning star

15Ö I'm all right with you
15Ö there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to liveÖ

Half time goes by
Suddenly youíre wise
Another blink of an eye
67 is gone
The sun is getting high
We're moving on...

I'm 99 for a moment
Dying for just another moment
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

15Ö there's still time for you
22Ö I feel her too
33Ö youíre on your way
Every Day's a new Day

15Ö there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to choose
Hey 15Ö there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

I push my fingers into my eyes
it's the only way to slowly stop the ache
but the pain is all, is all I have to take
Jesus it never ends
it works it's way inside
if the pain goes on

I have screamed until my veins collapsed
I've waited as my time's elapsed
now all I do is live with so much hate
I've wished for this
I've b*tched for that
I've left behind this little fact
you cannot kill what you did not create
I've gotta say
what I've gotta say
and then I swear I'll go away
but I can't promise you'll enjoy the noise
I guess I saved the best for last
my future seems like one big past
you're left with me 'cause you left me no choice

I push my fingers into my eyes
It's the only way to slowly stop the ache
but the pain is all, is all I have to take
Jesus it never ends
it works it's way inside
if the pain goes on
I'm not gonna make it

Put me back together
or separate the skin from bone
leave me all to pieces
then you can leave me alone
tell me that reality is nothing but a dream
but I've found out the hard way
nothing is what it seems

I push my fingers into my eyes
it's the only way to slowly stop the ache
but the pain is all, is all I have to take
Jesus it never ends
it works it's way inside
if the pain goes on
I'm not gonna make it

all I've got
all I've got is insane
all I've got
all I've got is insane
all I've got
all I've got is insane
all I've got
all I've got is insane

I push my fingers into myyyyyyyy
eyes, it's the only way to slowly stop the ache
but the pain is all, is all I have to take
Jesus it never ends
it works it's way inside
if the pain goes on
I'm not gonna make it

American Girls and American Guys
Weíll always stand up and salute
Weíll always recognize
When we see Old Glory Flying
Thereís a lot of men dead
So we can sleep in peace at night
When we lay down our head

My daddy served in the army
Where he lost his right eye
But he flew a flag out in our yard
Until the day that he died
He wanted my mother, my brother, my sister and me
To grow up and live happy
In the land of the free.

Now this nation that I love
Has fallen under attack
A mighty sucker punch came flyiní in
From somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly
Through our big black eye
Man, we lit up your world
Like the 4th of July

Hey Uncle Sam
Put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty
Started shakiní her fist
And the eagle will fly
Man, itís gonna be hell
When you hear Mother Freedom
Start ringiní her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you
Brought to you Courtesy of the Red White and Blue

Justice will be served
And the battle will rage
This big dog will fight
When you rattle his cage
And youíll be sorry that you messed with
The U.S. of A.
`Cause we`ll put a boot in your ass
It`s the American way

Hey Uncle Sam
Put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty
Started shakiní her fist
And the eagle will fly
Man, itís gonna be hell
When you hear Mother Freedom
Start ringiní her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you

How do you like me now?
Toby Keith

I was always the crazy one
I broke into the stadium
And I wrote your number on the 50 yard line
You were always the perfect one
And the valadictorian so
Under your number I wrote "call for a good time"

I only wanted to catch your attention
But you overlooked me somehow
Besides you had too many boyfriends to mention
And I played my guitar too loud.

How do you like me now?
How do you like me now,
Now that I'm on my way?
Do you still think I'm crazy
Standin here today?
I couldnt make you love me
But I always dreamed about living in your radio
How do you like me now?

When I took off to Tennessee
I heard that you made fun of me
Never imagined I'd make it this far
Then you married into money girl
Aint it a cruel and funny world?
He took your dreams and tore them apart.

He never comes home
And youre always alone
And your kids hear you cryin down the hall
Alarm clock starts ringin
Who could that be singin
Its me baby, with your wake up call!

How do you like me now?
How do you like me now,
Now that I'm on my way?
Do you still think I'm crazy
Standin here today?
I couldnt make you love me
But I always dreamed about living in your radio
How do you like me now?

Tell me baby...
I will preach on...

I Wanna Talk About Me Lyrics



We talk about your work how your boss is a jerk
We talk about your church and your head when it hurts
We talk about the troubles you've been having with your brother
About your daddy and your mother and your crazy ex-lover
We talk about your friends and the places that you've been
We talk about your skin and the dimples on your chin
The polish on your toes and the run in your hose
And God knows we're gonna talk about your clothes
You know talking about you makes me smile
But every once in awhile

I wanna talk about me
Wanna talk about I
Wanna talk about number one
Oh my me my
What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see
I like talking about you, usually, but occassionally
I wanna talk about me
I wanna talk about me

We talk about your dreams and we talk about your schemes
your high school team and your moisturizer creme
We talk about your nanna up in Muncie, Indiana
We talk about your grandma down in Alabama
We talk about your guys of every shape and size
The ones that you despise and the ones you idolize
We talk about your heart, about your brains and your smarts
And your medical charts and where you start
You know talking about you makes me grin
But every now and then

I wanna talk about me
Wanna talk about I
Wanna talk about number one
Oh my me my
What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see
I like talking about you, usually, but occassionally
I wanna talk about me
I wanna talk about me

You you you you you you you you youyouyouyouyou
I wanna talk about me

I wanna talk about me
Wanna talk about I
Wanna talk about number one
Oh my me my
What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see
I like talking about you, usually, but occassionally
I wanna talk about me

Should've Been A Cowboy



I bet you've never heard ol' Marshall Dillion say
Miss Kitty have you ever thought of running away
Settling down would you marry me
If I asked you twice and begged you pretty please
She'd of said yes in a New York minute
They never tied the knot
His heart wasn't in it
He stole a kiss as he road away
He never hung his hat up at Kitty's place

I should've been a cowboy
I should've learned to rope and ride
Wearing my six-shooter riding my pony on a cattle drive
Stealing the young girl's heart
Just like Gene and Roy
Singing those campfire songs
Oh I should've been a cowboy

I might of had a side kick with a funny name
Running wild through the hills chasing Jesse James
Ending up on the brink of danger
Riding shotgun for the Texas Rangers
Go west yound man, haven't you been told
California's full of whisky, women and gold
Sleeping out all night beneath the desert stars
Dream in my eye and a prayer in my heart

I should've been a Cowboy
I should've learned to rope and ride
Wearing my six-shooter riding my pony on a cattle drive
Stealing the young girl's hearts
Just like Gene and Roy
Singing those campfire songs
Oh I should've been a cowboy

I should've been a Cowboy
I should've learned to rope and ride
I'd be wearing my six-shooter riding my pony on a cattle drive
Stealing the young girl's hearts
Just like Gene and Roy
Singing those campfire songs
Oh I should've been a Cowboy
Yeah I should've been a Cowboy
Yeah I should've been a Cowboy

There Goes My Life
All he could think about was I'm too young for this.
Got my whole life ahead.
Hell I'm just a kid myself.
How'm I gonna raise one.

All he could see were his dreams goin' up in smoke.
So much for ditchin' this town and hangin' out on the coast.
Oh well, those plans are long gone.

And he said,
There goes my life.
There goes my future, my everything.
Might as well kiss it all good-bye.
There goes my life.......

A couple years of up all night and a few thousand diapers later.
That mistake he thought he made covers up the refrigerator.
Oh yeah..........he loves that little girl.

Momma's waiting to tuck her in,
As she fumbles up those stairs.
She smiles back at him dragging that teddy bear.
Sleep tight, blue eyes and bouncin' curls.

He smiles.....
There goes my life.
There goes my future, my everything.
I love you, daddy good-night.
There goes my life.

She had that Honda loaded down.
With Abercrombie clothes and 15 pairs of shoes and his American Express.
He checked the oil and slammed the hood, said your good to go.
She hugged them both and headed off to the West Coast.

And he cried,
There goes my life.
There goes my future, my everything.
I love you.
Baby good-bye.

There goes my life.
There goes my life.
Baby good-bye.

Carrying Your Love With Me
George Strait

Baby all I got is this beat up leather bag
And everything I own don't fill up half
But don't you worry 'bout the way I pack
All I care about is gettin' back, real soon
A goodbye kiss is all I need from you

Cause I'm carrying your love with me
West Virginia down to Tennessee
I'll be movin' with the good Lord's speed
Carrying your love with me
It's my strength for holding on
Every minute that I have to be gone
I'll have everything I'll ever need
I'm carrying your love with me

On a lonely highway stuck out in the rain
Darlin' all I have to do, is speak your name
The clouds roll back and the waters part
The sun starts shinin' in my heart for you
You're right there in everything I do...cause

Cause I'm carrying your love with me
West Virginia down to Tennessee
I'll be movin' with the good Lord's speed
Carrying your love with me
It's my strength for holding on
Every minute that I have to be gone
I'll have everything I'll ever need
I'm carrying your love with me

It's my strength for holding on
Every minute that I have to be gone
I'll have everything I'll ever need
I'm carrying your love with me
I'm carrying your love with me

I'm carrying your love with me
West Virginia down to Tennessee
I'll be movin' with the good Lord's speed
Carrying your love with me

We've got somethin' and it sure is fine
Let's take our love one night at a time
There's one thing that we both agree
I like you and baby you like me
Let's take our love one night at a time

All night, love all night, practice makes perfect,
gonna get it right, gonna get it right, one night at a time
All night, love all night, practice makes perfect,
gonna get it right, gonna get it right, one night at a time

Oh I think about you all day long
It feels so good it can't be wrong
I've got my fingers crossed that this goes on and on
Tomorrow, well, that's another day,
Come on baby, now what do you say
Lets take our love one night at a time

All night, love all night, practice makes perfect,
gonna get it right, gonna get it right, one night at a time

Oh I think about you all day long
It feels so good it can't be wrong,
I've got my fingers crossed that this goes on and on

I Just Want To Dance With You
George Strait

"I don't want to be the kind to hesitate,
Be too shy, wait too late
I don't care what they say other lovers do,
I just want to dance with you.

I gotta feeling that you have a heart like mine,
So let it show, let it shine.
If we have a chance to make one heart of two,
I just want to dance with you.

I want to dance with you, twirl you all around the floor
Thatís what they intended dancin' for,
I just want to dance with you.
I want to dance with you, hold you in my arms once more,
Thatís what they invented danciní for,
I just want to dance with you.

I caught you lookin' at me when I looked at you,
Yes I did, ain't that true?
You won't get embarrassed by the things I do,
I just want to dance with you.

Oh the boys are playin' softly and the girls are too,
So am I and so are you.
If this was a movie, we'd be right on cue,
I just want to dance with you.

I want to dance with you, twirl you all around the floor
Thatís what they intended dancin' for,
I just want to dance with you.
I want to dance with you, hold you in my arms once more,
Thatís what they invented danciní for,
I just want to dance with you.

I just want to dance with you,
I just want to dance with you,

Check Yes or No

It started way back in third grade.
I used to sit beside Emmylou Hayes
A pink dress, a matching bow, and her pony tail.
She kissed me on the school bus, but told me not to tell.

Next day I chased her round the playground
Across the monkey bars, to the merry-go-round
And Emmylou got caught passing me a note
Before the teacher took it, I read what she wrote.

Chorus:
Do you love me, do you wanna be my friend?
And if you do, well then donít be afraid to take me by the hand
If you want to.
I think this is how love goes, check yes or no.

Now weíre grown up and sheís my wife.
Still like two kids with stars in our eyes.
Ainít much changed, I still chase Emmylou.
Up and down the hall, around the bed in our room.

Last night I took her out in a white limousine
Twenty years later, she still gets to me
Canít believe itís been that long ago.
When we got started with just a little note.

Repeat chorus

Nobody else here baby
No one here to blame
No one to point the finger
Itís just you and me and the rain

Nobody made you do it
No one put words in your mouth
Nobody here taking orders
When love took a train heading south

Itís the blind leading the blond
Itís the stuff, itís the stuff of country songs

Hey if God will send his angels
And if God will send a sign
And if God will send his angels
Would everything be alright

God has got his phone off the hook, babe
Would he even pick up if he could
Itís been a while since we saw that child
Hanging íround this neighbourhood
You see his mother dealing in a doorway
See father christmas with a begging bowl
Jesus sisterís eyes are a blister
The high street never looked so low

Itís the blind leading the blond
Itís the cops collecting for the cons
So where is the hope and where is the faith
And the love...whatís that you say to me
Does love...light up your christmas tree
The next minute youíre blowing a fuse
And the cartoon network turns into the news

If God will send his angels
And if God will send a sign
And if God will send his angels
Where do we go
Where do we go

Jesus never let me down
You know jesus used to show me the score
Then they put jesus in show business
Now itís hard to get in the door

Itís the stuff, itís the stuff of country songs
But I guess it was something to go on

If God will send his angels
I sure could use them here right now
Well if God would send his angels

I donít want to lie
(where do we go)
I donít want to have a feel for the song
And I want to love, and i...
(where do we go)
And I want to feel alone

I meant to come back
to put out bliss
but the style is crumbling
covered
canned
it was sick
and no you don't even know
how it comes
shifts
then gets ruined
by you f***-ing SLOBS!

But it's classical, anyways
how cool are you?
I remember

I can't help it
makes me so sick
over and over it sits
stiff
bound with no heart
fine 'cause this is where the separation starts
arising
I can see it coming over your cloud

and it's classical, anyways
how cool are you?
I remember

Just a bad call
It's so funny how you think I'm so serious
but that's not it
the thing is
I don't give enough
to give a f***
you're plain boring
and you bore me asleep

but it's classical, anyway
how cool are you?
I remember

And I feel sickened
and who the f*** are you anyway
you f***
it's making sick sense
seeing how you're sticking out hardly
and hoping
money please
rise up off the the f***-ing knees
and hop off the train for a second
and try to find your own
f***-ing heart

This is one of my all-time favorites....

Queen of light took her bow
And then she turned to go,
The prince of peace embraced the gloom
And walked the night alone.
Oh, dance in the dark of night,
Sing to the morning light.
The dark lord rides in force tonight
And time will tell us all.
Oh, throw down your plow and hoe,
Rest not to lock your homes.
Side by side we wait the might
Of the darkest of them all.
I hear the horsesí thunder
Down in the valley below,
Iím waiting for the angels of avalon,
Waiting for the eastern glow.
The apples of the valley hold,
The seas of happiness,
The ground is rich from tender care,
Repay, do not forget, no, no.
Oh,dance in the dark of night,
Sing to the morning light.
The apples turn to brown and black, the tyrantís face is red.
Oh the war is common cry, pick up you swords and fly.
The sky is filled with good and bad
That mortals never know.
Oh, well, the night is long, the beads of time pass slow,
Tired eyes on the sunrise, waiting for the eastern glow.
The pain of war cannot exceed
The woe of aftermath,
The drums will shake the castle wall,
The ring wraiths ride in black, ride on.
Sing as you raise your bow,
Shoot straighter than before.
No comfort has the fire at night
That lights the face so cold.
Oh dance in the dark of night,
Sing to the morniní light.
The magic runes are writ in gold
To bring the balance back, bring it back.
At last the sun is shining, the clouds of blue roll by,
With flames from the dragon of darkness
The sunlight blinds his eyes.

I don't know where I'm gonna live
Don't know if I'll find a place
I'd have to think about it some time
And that I do not wish to face
I guess I'm counting on his
Divine Intervention

I cannot understand my God
I don't know why it gets to me
One day my life is filled with joy
And then we find we disagree
All depending on his
Divine Intervention

Does he love us does he love us?
Does he love us does he love us?
I look around and all I see is destruction
We're all Counting on his
Divine Intervention

When he comes the sun shine
When he comes the sun shine
Sunshine, the sunshine
Here it comes...

Matthew Sweet "I Thought I Knew You"


I thought I knew you
But I was in for a suprise
I let my love flow
From my heart into your eyes
And then I found out
That there was nothing I could know
Or guess about you
You'd go as far as you could go

And it took me years to figure out
That there was nothing I could give to you
Years to figure out
That there was nothing you would take from me
And how
can I
describe
The way you slowly put my hope away
And all of the time
I thought I knew you

I thought I knew you
But I wasn't even close
I had my heart set
On little more than a ghost
And I thought I'd show you
There was no way we could lose
I thought I'd force you
To realize and choose

And it took me years
To figure out
That there was nothing I could show to you
Years to figure out
That you were never really going to choose
And how
Can I
describe the way
I slowly lost my love for you
And all of the time
I thought I knew you

And it took me years
To figure out
That there was nothing
I could show to you
Years to figure out
That you were never
Really going to choose
And how can I describe
The way I slowly lost
My love for you
And all of the time
I thought I knew you

Matthew Sweet "Winona"



I tried to call you but the line was busy
Were you talking to a friend?
And when I tried again much later
I didn't want to let it ring again

So you can see I've got a problem
Back by popular demand
Sometimes I want to keep it from you
Sometimes I think you'll understand

Could you be my little movie star
Could you be my long lost girl
It's true that I don't really know you
But I'm alone in the world

When I think maybe I need you
I don't care if it's not true
'Cause it isn't so much what I need now
As what I want from you

Could you be my little movie star
Could you be my long lost girl
It's true that I don't really know you
But I'm alone in the world

What a beautiful moment
The truth comes out at last
Once your heart would own me forever
Then this passed
And what a beautiful moment
As my head comes apart
Drunk and in a manner of saying, wasted


'Cause you don't love me
You don't love me
You can't see how I matter in this world
Even though I loved you
You can't believe that
If you find something
You think might make you happy
Then I guess it's okay, I think it's okay
If you go away


Blown right out of my senses
I did not know what to do
Lost and badly wanting someone
To see me through
That's why I needed you


But you don't love me, you don't love me
You can't see how I matter in this world
Even though I loved you
You can't believe that
You think that leaving
Is what will make you happy
Then I guess it's okay, I think it's okay
If you go away


'Cause you don't love me
You don't love me
You can't see how I matter in this world
Even though I loved you
You can't believe that
You think that leaving
Is what will make you happy
Then I guess it's okay, I think it's okay
If you go away
'Cause you don't love me
You don't love me...

and the road becomes my bride...

And the road becomes my bride
I have stripped of all but pride
so in her I do confide
and it keeps me satisfied
gives me all I need

and with dust in throat I crave
only knowledge will I save
to the game you stay a slave

rover, wanderer, call me what you will

but I'll take my time anywhere
free to speak my mind anywhere
and I'll redefine anywhere

anywhere I roam
where I lay my head is home (yeah)

and the earth becomes my throne

And the earth becomes my throne
I adapt to the unknown
under wandering stars I've grown
by myself, but not alone
I ask no-one

and my ties are severed clean
the less I have the more I gain
off the beaten path I reign

rover, wanderer, call me what you will

but I'll take my time anywhere
free to speak my mind anywhere
and I'll never mind anywhere

anywhere I roam
where I lay my head is home

Oh, but I'll take my time anywere
free to speak my mind anywhere
and I'll redefine anywhere

anywhere I roam
where I lay my head is home
carved upon my stone
my body lies but still I roam
yeah, yeah

I was born by the river in a little tent
And just like that river I've been running ever since
It's been a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

It's been too hard living, but I'm afraid to die
Cause I don't know what's out there beyond the sky
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

And then I go to see my brother
And I ask him to help me please
And he just winds up knockin' me
Back down on my knees

There were times when I thought I couldn't last for long
But now I think I'm able to carry on
It's been a long, been a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

Hopefully somebody didn't already post this

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
And when she gets there she knows if the stores are closed
With a word she can get what she came for


Woe oh oh oh oh oh
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
And you know sometimes words have two meanings
In the tree by the brook there's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven

Woe oh oh oh oh oh
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west
And my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who stand looking

Woe oh oh oh oh oh
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

And it's whispered that soon, if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forest will echo with laughter

And it makes me wonder

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow
Don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean for the May Queen

Yes there are two paths you can go by
but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on

Your head is humming and it won't go because you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady can't you hear the wind blow and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our souls
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll
Woe oh oh oh oh oh
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
And when she gets there she knows if the stores are closed
With a word she can get what she came for


And she's buying a stairway to heaven, uh uh uh.

In the days of my youth
I was told what it was to be a man,
Now I've reached the age
I've tried to do all those things the best I can.
No matter how I try,
I find my way to do the same old jam.

Good Times, Bad Times,
You know I had my share;
When my woman left home
With a brown eyed man,
Well, I still don't seem to care.

Sixteen: I fell in love
With a girl as sweet as could be,
Only took a couple of days
Till she was rid of me.
She swore that she would be all mine
And love me till the end,
When I whispered in her ear
I lost another friend.

I know what it means to be alone,
I sure do wish I was at home.
I don't care what the neighbors say,
I'm gonna love you each and every day.
You can feel the beat within my heart.
Realize, sweet babe, we ain't ever gonna part.

Bustin' ass all day
Just to put food on the table.
And I always will for as long as I am able.
Done all I could,
Ev'rything that a man should do.
Still they refuse to call me,
Call me what I am.

Do you know what it takes to be a man?
Don't take a whole lots of money,
Diamond rings upon your hand, no.
That ain't what it takes to be a man.
Do right by the ones you love,
Always give a helpin' hand.

Now I've been through it all
Seen the good, the bad, the ugly.
Always take care of my share of responsibilities.
Now, just because I grow my hair
And play in a rockin' band,
Old folks are always telling me,
"Boy, why don't you grow up
And be a man."

I know what it takes to be a man.
It ain't the way you look
Or the clothes that you wear.
That ain't what it takes to be a man.
Do right by the ones you love,
Always lend a helpin' hand.

I know I got what it takes,
I know I got what it takes to be a man.
So go ahead and say what you will.
Because I know what I am,
Just what I am.

I know what it takes to be a man.
I've got what it takes
And you know I know what I am.
I know what it takes to be a man.
So go ahead, say what you will
'Cause I know what I am.
I'm a man.

You're so sweet
your smile
your magazine
and your bones
you're on fire
you move me
like music with your style

let me think about girls, money and new clothes
thirty nights of violence
and sugar to love


come here
come here
closer to the lung
so I can, I can
shove her over railing

you're sweet
but I'm tired
of proving this love
see you're a bore
but you move me
like a movie that you love

You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever,
But you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun.

And the colors of the sea blind your eyes with trembling mermaids,
And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses:
How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing,
For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white laced lips.

And you see a girl's brown body dancing through the turquoise,
And her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea.
And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body,
Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind.

The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers,
And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.

At home
drawin' pictures
of mountaintops
with him on top
lemon yellow sun
arms raised in a V
the dead lay
in pools of maroon below

Daddy didn't give attention
to the fact that Mommy didn't care
king Jeremy the wicked
ruled his world
Jeremy spoke in class today

Clearly I remember
picking on the boy
seemed a harmless little f***
but we unleashed a lion
gnashed his teeth and bit the recess lady's breast
how can I forget
and he hit me with a surprise left
my jaw left hurtin'
dropped wide open
just like the day
just like the day I heard

Daddy didn't give affection
and the boy was something that Mommy wouldn't wear
king Jeremy the wicked
ruled his world
Jeremy spoke in class today

Try to forget this
try to erase this
from the black-board

Sensitize me
Criticize me
Civilize me
Compensate me
Animate me
Complicate me
Elevate me

Goddess in my garden
Sister in my soul
Angel in my armor
Actress in my role

Daughter of a demon lover
Empress of the hidden face
Priestess of the pagan mother
Ancient queen of inner space

Spirit in my psyche
Double in my role
Alter in my image
Struggle for control

Mistress of the dark unconscious
Mermaid of the lunar sea
Daughter of the great enchantress
Sister to the boy inside of me

My counterpart, my foolish heart
A man must learn to rule his tender part
A warming trend, a gentle friend
A man must build a fortress to defend
A secret face, a touch of grace
A man must learn to give a little space
A peaceful state, a submissive trait
A man must learn to gently dominate

It was long after midnight
When we got to unconditional love
She said "Sure, my heart is boundless, but don't push my limits too far."
I said "If love was so transcendant
I don't understand these boundaries."
She said "Just don't disappoint me, you know how complex women are."

I'll be around
If you don't let me down too far
I'll be around
If you don't let me down

It was just before sunrise
When we started on traditional roles
She said "Sure, I'll be your partner, but don't make too many demands."
I said "If love has these conditions,
I don't understand those songs you love."
She said "This is not a love song, this isn't fantasyland."

Don't go too far
A phosphorescent wave on a tropical sea is a cold fire
Don't cross the line
The pattern of moonlight on the bedroom floor is a cold fire
Don't let me down
The flame at the heart of a pawnbroker's diamond is a cold fire
Don't break the spell
The look in your eyes as you head for the door is a cold fire

I'll be around
If you don't push me down too far
I'll be around
If you don't push me down

Love is blind if you are gentle
Love can turn to a long, cold burn...

I knew he was different in his sexuality
I went to his parties as a straight minority
It never seemed a threat to my masculinity
He only introduced me to a wider reality
As the years went by, we drifted apart
When I heard that he was gone
I felt a shadow cross my heart

But he's nobody's
Hero -- Saves the drowning child
Cures the wasting disease
Hero -- lands the crippled airplane
Solves great mysteries
Hero -- not the handsome actor
Who plays a hero's role
Hero -- not the glamour girl
Who'd love to sell her soul
If anybody's buying,
Nobody's hero

I didn't know the girl, but I knew her family
All their lives were shattered in a nightmare of brutality
They try to carry on, try to bear the agony
Try to hold some faith in the goodness of humanity
As the years went by, we drifted apart
When I heard that she was gone
I felt a shadow cross my heart

But she's nobody's
Hero -- Is the voice of reason
Against the howling mob
Hero -- is the pride of purpose
In the unrewarding job
Hero -- not the champion player
Who plays the perfect game
Hero -- not the glamour boy
Who loves to sell his name
Everybody's buying
Nobody's hero

As the years went by, we drifted apart
When I heard that you were gone
I felt a shadow cross my heart

But he's nobody's hero
Save the drowning child
Cure the wasting disease
Hero -- lands the crippled airplane
Solves great mysteries
Hero -- not the handsome actor
Who plays a hero's role
Hero -- not the glamour girl
Who'd love to sell her soul
If anybody's buying,

You give me something to come home to, baby
You give me something to believe in
I know in my heart
You have loved me from the start
Hey baby

I can tell by the way that I feel

You give me something to believe in
Yes, and you give me something to go on living for
And I know in my heart
You have loved me

Hey baby
I know that it's real
I can tell by the way that I feel

Lie down, my love, lie down
I will sing you a lullaby
Lie down, my love, lie down
Rest easy and close your eyes
Like clear water in a mountain stream
I will come to you in your dreams
Like pictures reflected in a mountain lake
I will be with you when you wake

You give me something to hold on to
You give me something to believe in
And I know in my heart
You have loved me

Whoa, baby

Lie down, my love, lie down

Winter's people watching
As I sail from season's four
To join some crazy ladies
In a game upon the shore
None of them with broken wings
But still refuse to fly
So with sweetness on my lips
I smile a last goodbye

And now I spend my life
On the velvet side of hell
Aimlessly here searching
For what I cannot tell
The quietness is terrible
It's more than I can stand
But thousands now stand cheering
As my blood flows in the sand

[Spoken:]
You're not the child
You thought you were
You wake up in the night
And know you're blind
And yet they keep on pushing
Trying the insides of your mind
Forever, forever arresting to control
Until the emptiness of heaven welcomes your weary soul

Rise up with the new dawn's early morning
Feel the sunshine warm upon your face
Tomorrow's come a long, long way to help you
Yes, it's your saving grace

Beyond the 7th sky
Thereís a room where we are with God
Beyond the sun and moon
Where the angels will be our guard
Where the weather doesnít change
Everyday is summer
As the sands are numbered
Instead of cannonball grey
Do you think itís kinda strange ?
Or can we be lovers ?
As the spirit covers our electrified rage

Hold me mama
And weíll fly across the sea
Way beyond the moon and stars and sky
Iím talkiní bout you and God and I

Now that the time is near
Iím ready I have no fear
I know youíre the one my dear
The stars will come out tonight
In time for our sacred flight
Together weíll be for life
And I will burn in your flame
Kiss me baby
Take my hand and come with me

Iím talkiníbout the moon and stars and sky
Iím talkiníbout you and God and I
Letís take it to the place where life was formed
And to the place where Jesus Christ was born

Jesus
Words and music by Freddie Mercury


And then I saw Him in the crowd
A lot of people had gathered round Him
The beggars shouted the lepers called Him
The old man said nothing
He just stared about him
All going down to see the Lord Jesus
All going down to see the Lord Jesus
All going down

Then came a man before His feet he fell
Unclean said the leper and rang his bell
Felt the palm of a hand touch his head
Go now go now you're a new man instead
All going down to see the Lord Jesus
All going down to see the Lord Jesus
All going down

It all began with the three wise men
Followed a star took them to Bethlehem
And made it heard throughout the land
Born was a leader of man
All going down to see the Lord Jesus
All going down to see the Lord Jesus
All going down

Whoa-o...Iíve been banging my head against the wall
Whoa-o...for so long it seems I knocked it down, yeah it got knocked down
Whoa-o...and the heating bill went through the roof
Whoa-o...and the wall I knocked down was the proof
That my landlord needed to kick me out

I got evicted now Iím living on the street
My spirits lifted...oh wait, that wasnít me
Too many turns have turned out to be wrong
This time I learned that, I knew it all along

When car crashes occur
Then Iíll be what you were
When I see what I should
When I see that itís good (that itís good)

To experience the bittersweet
To taste defeat
Then brush my teeth
Experience the bittersweet
To taste defeat
Then brush my teeth

Cause I struggle with forward motion
I struggle with forward motion
We all struggle with forward motion
Cause forward motion is harder than it sounds
Well everytime I gain some ground
I gotta turn myself around again
Itís harder than it sounds
Well everytime I gain some ground

Whoa-o...Iíve been banging my head against the wall
Whoa-o...for so long it seems I got knocked out. yeah, I got knocked out cold
Whoa-o...and the medical bills went through the roof

That Iíll still remember this when I get old

I got evicted now Iím living on the street
My spirits lifted...oh wait, that wasnít me
Too many turns have turned out to be wrong
This time I learned that, I knew it all along

When I grasp the concept
Then Iíll sleep where you slept
When I know I need help
When I allow myself (allow myself)

To experience the bittersweet
To taste defeat
Then brush your teeth
Experience the bittersweet
To taste defeat
Then brush your teeth

Cause I struggle with forward motion
I struggle with forward motion
We all struggle with forward motion

Cause forward motion is harder than it sounds
Well everytime I gain some ground

Well everytime I gain some ground

Another good Relient K song- A Little More than Useless
------------------------------------------------------------------
I feel like, I would like
To be somewhere else doing something that matters
And I'll admit here, while I sit here
My mind wastes away and my doubts start to gather

Whats the purpose? It feels worthless
So unwanted like I've lost all my value
I can't find it, not in the least bit
and I'm just scared, so scared that I'll fail you

And sometimes I think that I'm not any good at all
And sometimes I wonder why, why I'm even here at all
But then You assure me

I'm a little more than useless
And when I think that I can't do this
You promise me that I'll get through this
And do something right
Do something right for once

So I say if I can't, do something significant
I'll opt to leave most opportunities wasted
And nothing trival, that life could give me will
Measure up to what might have replaced it

Too late look, my date book
Is packed full of days that were empty and now gone
And I bet, that regret
Will prove to get me to improve in the long run

And sometimes I think that I'm not any good at all
And sometimes I wonder why, why I'm even here at all
But then You assure me

I'm a little more than useless
And when I think that I can't do this
You promise me that I'll get through this
And do something right
Do something right for once

Iím a little more than useless
And I never knew I knew this
Was gonna the day, gonna be the day
That I would do something right
Do something right for once

I noticed, I know this
Week is a symbol of how I use my time
Resent it, I spent it
Convincing myself the world's doing just fine
Without me
Doing anything of any consequence
Without me
Showing any sign of ever making sense
Of my time, it's my life
And my right, to use it like I should
Like He would, for the good
Of everything that I would ever know

Into the distance, a ribbon of black
stretched to the point of no turning back
a flight of fancy on a wind swept field
standing alone my sense reeled
a fatal attraction holding me fast, how
can I escape this irresistible grasp?
can't keep my eyes from the circling sky
tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I
ice is forming on the tips of my wings
unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of everything
no navigator to guide my way home
unladed, empty and turned to stone

a soul in tension that's learning to fly
condition grounded but determined to try
can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

above the planet on a wing and a prayer
my grubby halo, a vapor trail in the empty air
across the clouds I see my shadow fly
out of the corner of my watering eye
a dream unthreatened by the morning light
could blow this soul right through the roof of the night

there's no sensation to compare with this
suspended animation, a state of bliss
can't keep my mind from the circling sky
tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves in labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant tide
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine
And no one showed us to the land
And no one knows the wheres or whys
But something stirs and
Something tries
And starts to climb towards the light
Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can
And no one calls us to the land
And no one forces down our eyes
And no one speaks
And no one tries
And no one flies around the sun
Cloudless every day you fall
Upon my waking eyes
Inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Comes streamin in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning
And no one sings me lullabies
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky.

Little by little the night turns around
Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn
Novices lean on each other in yearning
Under the leaves the swallow is resting
Set the controls for the heart of the sun
Over the mountain watching the watcher
Breaking the darkness waking the grapevine
One inch of love is one inch of shadow
Love is the shadow that ripen's the wine
Set the controls for the heart of the sun
The heart of the sun
The heart of the sun
Witness the man who raves at the wall
Making the shape of his question to heaven
Whether the sun will fall in the evening
Will he remember the lesson of giving
Set the controls for the heart of the sun
The heart of the sun
The heart of the sun

Following the path as it leads towards the Darkness in the North
Weary strangers' faces show their sympathy
They've seen that hope before
And if you want to stay for a little bit
Rest your aching limbs for a little bit
Before you the night is beckoning
And you know you can't delay
You hear the night birds calling you
But you can't touch the restless sky
Close your aching eyes beyond your name
Mist is swelling, creatures crawling,
Hear the roar get louder in your ears
You know the folly was your own
But the force behind can't conquer all your fears
And if you want to stay for a little bit
Rest your aching limbs for a little bit
Before you the night is beckoning
And you know you can't delay
You hear the night birds calling you
But you can't touch the restless sky
Close your aching eyes beyond your name
Throw your thoughts back many years
To the time when there was life in every morning
Perhaps a day will come
When the nights will be as on that morning
And if you want to stay for a little bit
Rest your aching limbs for a little bit
Before you the night is beckoning
And you know you can't delay
You hear the night birds calling you
But you can't touch the restless sky
Close your aching eyes beyond your name
Rest your weary head, be on your way.

Nothing you could keep so keep me down
Like the stones beneath the water that you walk on to be taller
The hands you stuck together when you prayed youíd wait forever
Just another fragile angel heart
Falling down on lead wings torn apart

The words beneath my skin
The ink that put you in
Destroying all the things you left around
Earthbound coming down

So what you have the nerve to call a friend
Is starved of all the sense to make amends
Iím the glass you break to touch but you never want me much
Like the view across the water from the shoes and two feet smaller
I know it doesnít pay to be this hurt

Good men through the ages, tryiní to find the sun;
And I wonder, still I wonder, whoíll stop the rain.

I went down virginia, seekiní shelter from the storm.
Caught up in the fable, I watched the tower grow.
Five year plans and new deals, wrapped in golden chains.
And I wonder, still I wonder whoíll stop the rain.

Heard the singers playiní, how we cheered for more.

Still the rain kept pouriní, falliní on my ears.

After all the jacks are in their boxes And the clowns have all gone to bed
You can hear happiness staggering on down the street
Footprints dressed in red And the wind whispers Mary

A broom is drearily sweeping Up the broken pieces of yesterday's life
Somewhere a queen is weeping Somewhere a king has no wife
And the wind It cries Mary

The traffic lights They turn of blue tomorrow
And shine their emptiness down on my bed
The tiny island sails downstream Cause the life that lived is Is dead
And the wind screams Mary

Will the wind ever remember The names it has blown in the past
And with this crutch It's old age And it's wisdom
It whispers No This will be the last
And the wind cries Mary

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill?
He sounds too blue to fly.
The midnight train is whining low:
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

I've never seen a night so long,
When time goes crawling by.
The moon just went behind a cloud,
To hide its face and cry.

Did you ever see a robin weep,
When leaves begin to die?
That means he's lost his will to live.
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

The silence of a falling star,
Lights up a purple sky.
And as I wonder where you are,
I'm so lonesome I could cry.
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

Wayfaring warrior soul - still wild
The archer stands
Arrow measured to the goal - sing of
Strong and living man
In his mind there is a vision wandíring
Through the forest town
Telling of riches only given if through
The woods the way is found

Crying ah! beautiful dancers ...wake up
From your sleep!
Ahhh gentle romancers...drink of love
So sweet!

Treasure glowing in their eyes - forest
Deepens dark their dream
Keep to the pathway he advise the woods
Are more than they might seem
Heed you now the apparition bending never
Ending sounds
Call you into her mystery - are your eyes
Not sparkling now?

Sighing ahh! take you no warning -
Make no foolish fight
Ahh, think not of morning - lie here
Through the night!

Beauty take us! they call in my arms!
They hear her say
Silken web falls - mist illusion rips away
Helpless! helpless! now they scream
Helpless on the path he stands
And awakens from his dream singing string
Beneath his hand

Gentle archer ages old - release the aim
Free the goal
Roll your arrow to my soul - release the aim
Free the goal

So RUN
right
right back to school

look back I sift through all the cliques
roaming the halls all year making me sick
while everyone's out trying to make the cut
what
when you think you know me
right
I switch it up
behind the walls smoking cigarettes and sipping vodka
hop a fence and catch a cab
ain't no-one can stop us
give me a break I'm on some other sh**
while you act like it's everything that you've got

push back the square
now that you need her
but you don't
so there you go
'cause back in school we are the leaders of it all

so stop that quit
all that
quit
who ruined it?
you did
now grab a notebook and a pen
and start taking notes on me and everyone who's on the top
you think we're on the same page
but I know we're not
I'll be the man, watch your back-packs, pens and pencils
and just like Kieth, I'm flippin' it
while you just keep it simple
you can't just go rockin' the clothes, copying the stance
'cause really it's everything that you're not

push back the square
now that you need her
but you don't
so there you go
'cause back in school we are the leaders of it all

so, transpose
or stop your life
it's what you do
transpose
or stop your lies
so run
right
back to school
'cause all you are
now I'm on the next page
all you are
it's time to close the book up
all you are
now I'm on the next page
all you are
close the book up now

push back the square
now that you need her
but you don't
so there you go
'cause back in school
we are the leaders of it all

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion

When the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
Now how shall we sing the lord's song in a strange land

When the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Requiring of us a song
Now how shall we sing the lord's song in a strange land

Let the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts
Be acceptable in thy sight here tonight

The Number No Good Things Could Come Of



Now let me introject about this little peace we have
And all the months passed dragging through the mud,
dragging through the mud,
dragging down.
Helps me comment on virginity.
Help me find the price of humility.
As a matter of fact you owe me some
As a matter of fact you owe me.
And I guess,
And I guess,
And I confess,
I sometimes think im God,
Do I exist just to work for you?
Cancer is the proof
We will be going nowhere soon
You're the reason why
Im always asking of you twice
Cancer is the proof
We will be going nowhere soon
You're the reason why
They're always doubting of us twice.

To dream of the next oh, oh the next,

Tho oceans away
Waves roll in my thoughts

See the thorn twist in your side

Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And Iím waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I canít live
With or without you

My body bruised, sheís got me with

An only child
Alone and wild
A cabinet makerís son
His hands were meant
For different work
And his heart was known
To none --
He left his home
And went his lone
And solitary way
And he gave to me
A gift I know I never
Can repay

A quiet man of music
Denied a simpler fate
He tried to be a soldier once
But his music wouldnít wait
He earned his love
Through discipline
A thundering, velvet hand
His gentle means of sculpting souls
Took me years to understand.

The leader of the band is tired
And his eyes are growing old
But his blood runs through
My instrument
And his song is in my soul --
My life has been a poor attempt
To imitate the man
Iím just a living legacy
To the leader of the band.

My brothersí lives were
Different
For they heard another call
One went to chicago
And the other to st. paul
And Iím in colorado
When Iím not in some hotel
Living out this life Iíve chose
And come to know so well.

I thank you for the music
And your stories of the road
I thank you for the freedom
When it came my time to go --
I thank you for the kindness
And the times when you got tough
And, pap, I donít think i
Said íi love youí near enough --

The leader of the band is tired
And his eyes are growing old
But his blood runs through
My instrument
And his song is in my soul --
My life has been a poor attempt
To imitate the man
Iím just a living legacy
To the leader of the band
I am the living legacy
To the leader of the band.

Damn, I hate Dan Fogelberg for writing that song. I am a rock and roller. I am not supposed to cry at the last verse. Its takes a big man to say "I love you" to his dad.


Curse you, Fogelberg.

Anyway:



Here we sit
In this smokey bar
Two souls drifting
Thru the world alone

Here we talk
About life and love
Hold me tonight
We'll be lovers

And we'll dance
As our drinks go down
Casting the stale truth
With each breath

Then we'll touch
As the lights go out
Want me tonight?
I'm your lover

Baby I'm desperate
I'm burning fire for you

When the rain comes falling down
And you're lonely as the night gows colder
Don't worry 'cause I'll be there for you
When your dreams seem far away
Take a moment to look over your shoulder
'Cause honey you know I'm desperate too
Everybody's desperate just like you

Here we are
Like the times before
Reaching out at midnight
For the only open arms

And we kiss
In our Shangri-la
We steal the night
Just like lovers

Baby I'm desperate
I'm burning fire for you

When the rain comes falling down
And you're lonely as the night grows colder
Don't worry 'cause I'll be there for you

When your dreams seem far away
Take a moment to look over your shoulder
'Cause honey you know I'm desperate too
I'm desperate just like you

(solo)

And baby I'm desperate
I'm burning fire for you
And I know you're desperate
But here I am right beside you

When the rain comes falling down
And you're lonely as the night grows colder
Don't worry 'cause I'll be there for you
When your dreams seem far away
Take a moment to look over your shoulder
'Cause baby you know I'm desperate too

Everybody's desperate just like you

Seventy-three men sailed up from the San Francisco Bay
Rolled off of their ship, and here's what they had to say
"We're callin' everyone to ride along to another shore
We can laugh our lives away and be free once more"

But no one heard them callin', no one came at all
'Cause they were too busy watchin' those old raindrops fall
As a storm was blowin' out on the peaceful sea
Seventy-three men sailed off to history

Ride, captain ride upon your mystery ship
Be amazed at the friends you have here on your trip
Ride captain ride upon your mystery ship
On your way to a world that others might have missed

I was told a million times
Of all the troubles in my way
How I had to keep on trying
Little better evíry day
But if I crossed a million rivers
And I rode a million miles
Then Iíd still be where I started
Bread and butter for a smile
Well I sold a million mirrors
In a shop in alley way
But I never saw my face
In any window any day
Well they say your folks are telling you
To be a super star
But I tell you just be satisfied
To stay right where you are

Keep yourself alive keep yourself alive
Itíll take you all your time and a money
Honey youíll survive

Well Iíve loved a million women
In a belladonic haze
And I ate a million dinners
Brought to me on silver trays
Give me evírything I need
To feed my body and my soul
And Iíll grow a little bigger
Maybe that can be my goal
I was told a million times
Of all the people in my way
How I had to keep on trying
And get better evíry day
But if I crossed a million rivers
And I rode a million miles
Then Iíd still be where I started
Still be where I started

Keep yourself alive keep yourself alive
Itíll take you all your time and money honey
Youíll survive

Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
Itíll take you all your time and money
To keep me satisfied
Do you think youíre better evíry day
No I just think Iím two steps nearer to my grave
Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive mm
You take your time and take your money
Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
Itíll take you all your time and a money
To keep me satisfied

How many days has it been
Since I was born
How many days until I die
Do I know any ways
That I can make you laugh
Or do I only know how to make you cry

When the baby looks around him
It's such a sight to see
He shares a simple secret
With the wise man

He's a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger in a strange land
Tell me why
He's a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger in a strange land

How many miles will it take
To see the sun
And how many years until it's done
Kiss my confusion away in the night
Lay by side when the morning comes

And the baby looks around him
And shares his bed of hay
With the burro in the palace of the king

He's a stranger in a strange land
Tell me why
He's a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger in a strange land

Well, I don't exactly know
What's going on in the world today
Don't know what there is to say
About the way the people are treating
Each other, not like brothers

Leaders take us far away from ecology
With mythology and astrology
Has got some words to say
About the way we live today
Why can't we learn to love each other
It's time to turn a new face
To the whole world wide human race

Stop the money chase
Lay back, relax
Get back on the human track
Stop racing toward oblivion
Oh, such a sad, sad state we're in
And that's a thing

Do you recognize the bells of truth
When you hear them ring
Won't you stop and listen
To the children sing
Won't you come on and sing it children

He's a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger in a strange land

It's almost like I'm swimming.

and he's trying to remember when,
but it makes him dizzy.

Seems like I've been here before.
Seems so familiar.
Seems like I'm slipping

Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead



Her green plastic watering can
For her fake chinese rubber plant
In fake plastic earth.
That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plans
To get rid of itself.
And it wears her out, it wears her out
It wears her out, it wears her out.

She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns.
He used to do surgery
For girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins.
And it wears him out, it wears him out
It wears him out, it wears him out.

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love.
But I canít help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run
And it wears me out, it wears me out
It wears me out, it wears me out.

And if I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted,
All the time, all the time, ohhh... ohh...

On a black horse of steel

Hell on two wheels
Hide in the shadows
Awaiting defeat
Or live by the sword
And choose to be free

We say retribution
We say vengeance is bliss
We say revolution
With a cast iron first

Coming down the road
Watching every move
Kicking in the doors

While you're looking up at me
You're like my favourite damn disease

And I love the places that we go
And I love the people that you know
And I love the way you can't say no
Too many long lines in a row
I love the powder on your nose

And now I know who you are
It wasn't that hard, just to figure you out
And now I know who you are
It wasn't that hard, just to figure you out

I like the freckles on your chest
And I like the way you like me best
And I like the way you're not impressed
While you put me to the test
I like the white stains on your dress

And I love the way you pass the check
And I love the good times that you wreck
And I love your lack of self-respect
While you passed out on the deck
I love my hands around your neck

And now I know who you are
It wasn't that hard, just to figure you out
And now I know who you are

Oh say can you see?
By the dawn's early light,
what so proudly we hailed,
at the twighlight's last gleaming?

Who's broad stripes and bright stars,
through the perilous fight,
o'er the ramparts we watched,
were so gallantly streaming?

And the rockets red glare,
the bombs bursting in air,
gave proof through the night,
that our flag was still there,

Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave?
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave... :cheers:

Hospital and they said they couldn't go get him --- when i went back, he was gone --- i contacted his family and they said they spent a little time with him after he was discharged, and then never saw him again --- and neither did i ---
--- everytime i play the lead on aqualung, i think of my old friend --- the way the tempo transitions from mellow to angry always paints a portrait in my mind of that day ---

Children behave,
That's what they say when we're together,
And watch how you play,
They don't understand,
And so we're,

Running just as fast as we can,
Holdin' onto one another's hand,
Tryin' to get away into the night,
And then you put your arms around me,
And we tumble to the ground,
And then you say,

I think we're alone now,
There does't seem to be anyone around.
I think we're alone now,
The beating of our hearts is the only sound.

Look at the way,
We gotta hide what we're doin'.
'Cause what would they say,
If they ever knew and so we're,

Running just as fast as we can,
Holdin' onto one another's hand,
Tryin' to get away into the night,
And then you put your arms around me,
And we tumble to the ground,
And then you say,

I think we're alone now,
There does't seem to be anyone around.
I think we're alone now,
The beating of our hearts is the only sound.

I think we're alone now,
There does't seem to be anyone around.
I think we're alone now,
The beating of our hearts is the only sound.

Got a black magic woman
Got a black magic woman
Iíve got a black magic woman
Got me so blind I canít see
That sheís a black magic woman
Sheís trying to make a devil out of me

Donít turn your back on me baby
Donít turn your back on me baby
Yes donít turn your back on me baby
Stop messing íround with your tricks
Donít turn your back on me baby
You just might pick up my magic sticks

Got your spell on me baby
Got your spell on me baby
Yes you got your spell on me baby
Turning my heart into stone
I need you so bad, magic woman
I canít leave you alone

We are young, heartache to heartache we stand
No promises, no demands
Love is a battlefield
We are strong, no one can tell us weíre wrong
Searchiní our hearts for so long, both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

Youíre begginí me to go, youíre makiní 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 youíve had?
Believe me, believe me, I canít tell you why
But Iím trapped by your love, and Iím chained to your side

We are young, heartache to heartache we stand
No promises, no demands
Love is a battlefield

We are strong, no one can tell us weíre wrong
Searchiní our hearts for so long, both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

Weíre losing control
Will you turn me away or touch me deep inside?
And before this gets old, will it still feel the same?
Thereís no way this will die
But if we get much closer, I could lose control
And if your heart surrenders, youíll need me to hold

We are young, heartache to heartache we stand
No promises, no demands
Love is a battlefield

We are strong, no one can tell us weíre wrong
Searchiní our hearts for so long, both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

Deep peace of the running wave to you
Deep peace of the flowing air to you
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you
Deep peace of the shining star to you
Deep peace of the son of peace to you

One man stood firm guarding cups overflowing
Brimful of memories and yesterday's dreams
He could never explain his own silent thunder
The ocean just blows rough at this time of year

And the wheel keeps on turning
The wheel keeps on turning
The wheel keeps on turning
Turning around

Away we will sail with all our flags flying
Too many changes can cause us delay
Each star in the sky is there for a reason
Making it so bright for this time of day

And the wheel keeps on turning
The wheel keeps on turning
The wheel keeps on turning
This fool made it round

in my rear view mirror the sun is going down
sinking behind bridges in the road
and i think of all the good things
that we have left undone
and i suffer premonitions
confirm suspicions
of the holocaust to come
the wire that holds the cork
that keeps the anger in
gives way
and suddenly it's day again
the sun is in the east
even though the day is done
two suns in the sunset
hmmmmmmmmm
could be the human race is run
like the moment when your brakes lock
and you slide toward the big truck
and stretch the frozen moments with your fear
and you'll never hear their voices
and you'll never see their faces
you have no recourse to the law anymore
and as the windshield melts
my tears evaporate
leaving only charcoal to defend
finally i understand
the feelings of the few
ashes and diamonds
foe and friend
we were all equal in the end

Caught up in a whirlwind, can't catch my breath.
Knee deep in hot water, broke out in cold sweat.
Can't catch a turtle, in this rat race.
Feels like I'm losing ground, at a breakneck pace.

Afraid of my own shadow, in the face of grace.
Heart full of darkness, spotlight on my face.
There was love all around me, but I was looking for revenge.
Thank God it never found me, would have been the end.

Walkin' the tight rope, steppin on my friends
Walkin' the tight rope, was a shame and a sin.
Walkin' the tight rope, between wrong and right.
Walkin' the tight rope, both day and night.

Lookin' back in front of me, in the mirror's grin.
Through eyes of love I see, I'm really lookin at a friend
We've had all our problems, that's the way life is.
My heart goes out to others, who are there to make amends.

Walkin' the tightrope. Trying to make it right
Every day and every night
Bring it all around.
From the lost to found.
Streched around the world.
Save the boys and girls.
Let's make it right.
Do it, do it tonight.
Walkin the tightrope

Sent a letter on a long summer day
Made of silver, not of clay
Iíve been runniní down this dusty road

Wheel in the sky keeps on turniní
I donít know where Iíll be tomorrow
Wheel in the sky keeps on turniní

Iíve been trying to make it home
Got to make it before too long
I canít take this very much longer
Iím stranded in the sleet and rain
Donít think Iím ever gonna make it home again

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night
He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing stretching every nerve
Had to listen had no choice
I did not believe the information
I just had to trust imagination
My heart going boom boom boom
"Son," he said "Grab your things,
I've come to take you home."

To keepin' silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Tho' my life was in a rut
"Till I thought of what I'd say
Which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart going boom boom boom
"Hey" he said "Grab your things
I've come to take you home."
Back home.

When illusion spin her net
I'm never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No on taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don't need a replacement
I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart going boom boom boom
"Hey" I said "You can keep my things,
they've come to take me home."

The story is told of the power of gold and its lure on the unsuspecting
It glitters and shines, it badgers and blinds
And constantly needs protecting
Balance the cost of the soul you lost with the dreams you lightly sold
Are you under...the power of gold
The letters and calls got you climbing the walls
And everyone wants a favor
They beg to remind you of times left behind you
But you know the past is a loser
The face you're wearing is different now
And the days run hot and cold
Are you under...the power of gold
You're a creature of habit, run like a rabbit
Scared of a fear you can't name
Your own paranoia is looming before you
And nobody thinks that it's a game
Balance the cost of the soul you lost
With the dreams you lightly sold
Then tell me that you're free of the power of gold
The power of gold
The women are lovely, the wine is superb
But there's something about the song that disturbs you
The women are lovely, the wine is superb
But there's something about the song that disturbs you
The women are lovely, the wine is superb
But there's something about the song that disturbs you

In my eyes
Indisposed
In disguise
As no one knows
Hides the face
Lies the snake
The sun
In my disgrace
Boiling heat
Summer stench
íneath the black
The sky looks dead
Call my name
Through the cream
And Iíll hear you
Scream again

Black hole sun
Wonít you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Wonít you come
Wonít you come

Stuttering
Cold and damp
Steal the warm wind
Tired friend
Times are gone
For honest men
And sometimes
Far too long
For snakes
In my shoes
A walking sleep
And my youth
I pray to keep
Heaven send
Hell away
No one sings
Like you
Anymore

Hang my head
Drown my fear
Till you all just
Disappear

Sensation washes over me
I can't descrbe it
pain I felt so long ago
I don't remember

Tear a hole so I can see
my devastation
feelings from so long ago
I don't remember

Holding on
to let them know
what's given to me
to hide behind
the mask this time
and try to believe

Blind your eyes to what you see
you can't embrace it
leave it well enough alone
and don't remember

Cut your pride and watch it bleed
you can't deny it
pain you know you can't ignore
I don't remember

Holding on
to let them know
what's given to me
to hide behind
the mask this time
and try to believe

If I can
remember
to know this
will conquer me
if I can
just walk alone
and try to escape

Conquistador, your stallion stands
In need of company
And like some angel's haloed brow
You reek of purity
I see your armor-plated breast
Has long-since lost its sheen
And in your death-masked face
There are no signs which can be seen
And though I hope for something to find
I can see no place to unwind

Conquistador, a vulture sits
Upon your silver shield
And in your rusty scabbard now
The sand has taken seed
And though your jewel-encrusted blade
Has not been plundered still
The sea has washed across your face
And taken of its fill
And though I hope for something to find
I can see no place to unwind

Conquistador, there is no time
I must pay my respect
And though I came to jeer at you
I leave now with regret
And as the gloom begins to fall
I see there is no, only all
And though you came with sword held high
You did not conquer, only die
And though I hope for something to find
I can see no place to unwind
Though I hope for, something to find
I can see no place to unwind

Oh oh people of the earth
Listen to the warning the seer he said
Beware the storm that gathers here
Listen to the wise man

I dreamed I saw on a moonlit stair
Spreading his hand to the multitude there
A man who cried for a love gone stale
And ice cold hearts of charity bare
I watched as fear took the old manís gaze
Hopes of the young in troubled graves
íi see no dayí I heard him say
So grey is the face of every mortal

Oh oh people of the earth!
ílisten to the warningí the prophet he said
For soon the cold of night will fall
Summoned by your own hand

Ah ah children of the land
Quicken to the new life take my hand
Fly and find the new green bough
Return like the white dove

He told of death as a bone white haze
Taking the lost and the unloved babes
Late too late all the wretches run
These kings of beasts now counting their days
From motherís love is the son estranged
Married his own his precious gain
The earth will shake in two will break
And death all round will be your dowry

Oh oh people of the earth
Listen to the warning the seer he said
For those who hear and mark my words
Listen to the good plan

Oh oh oh oh and two by two my human zoo
Theyíll be running for to come
Running for to come out of the rain

Oh flee for your lives who heed me not
Let all your treasures make you fear for your life
Deceive you not the fires of hell will take you
Should death await you

Ah people can you hear me?
And now I know and now I know
And now I know and now I know
That you can hear me
And now I know and now I know
And now I know now I know
Now I know now I know
Now I know now I know
Now I know
The earth will shake in two will break
Death all around around around around
Around around around around
Now I know now I know
Now I know now I know
Now I know now I know
Now I know now I know
Now I know now I know

And peace all around may be your fortune

The vision fades a voice I hear
Listen to the madman!
But still I fear and still I dare not

And I was born in the back seat of a greyhound bus
Rolliní down highway 41.

Out on thr road, out íneath the stars,
Feeliní the breeze, passiní the cars.

Women have come, women have gone,
Everyone tryiní to cage me.
Some were so sweet, I barely got free,
Others, they only enraged me.
Sometimes at night, I see their faces,
I feel the traces they left on my soul.
Those are the memories that made me a wealthy soul.

Ghost riders dancin' on the moon
Night is closin' in again

Clutchin' to my tremblin' bed
Call your name 'til I'm out of my head
Walkin' the backstreets
Lookin' for clues
I got to get you back
If it's the last thing I do

I'll go walkin' in a hurricane
I'll come crawlin' in a drivin' rain
I'll keep searchin' 'til I go insane
I got to have your love

Lookin' out across the lights
I know you're out there
Runnin' with the night
'Round and 'round
A moth to the flame
And when I finally got you home
It's just a matter of time 'til you're gone
Heartache and shadow draggin' you down
This chain around your heart
Gonna put you in the ground

I'll go walkin' in a hurricane
I'll come crawlin' in a drivin' rain
I'll keep searchin' 'til I go insane
I got to have your love

Everytime you go away
I got the same old wild goose chase
Hangin' on to misery
I should-a quit you long ago
Just packed it up and hit the road
I'm just a junkie
Addicted to the flame
I'm hooked on the danger

Up to now for me itís been hands against stone
Spent each and every moment
Searching for what to believe
Coming out of the dark, I finally see the light now
Itís shinning on me
Coming out of the dark, I know the love that saved me
Youíre sharing with me

Starting again is part of the plan
And Iíll be so much stronger holding your hand
Step by step Iíll make it through I know I can
It may not make it easier but I have felt you

He comes gathering up the bits while hoping that the puzzle fits
He leaves you, he leaves you
Freedom rider

With a silver star between his eyes that open up at hidden lies
Big man crying with defeat, see people gathering in the street
You feel him, you feel him

When lightning strikes you to the bone, you turn around, youíre all alone
By the time you hear that silent or siren sound, then your soul is in the lost and found

Spare a little candle
Save some light for me
Figures up ahead
Moving in the trees
White skin in linen
Perfume on my wrist
And the full moon that hangs over
These dreams in the mist
Darkness on the edge
Shadows where I stand
I search for the time
On a watch with no hands
I want to see you clearly
Come closer than this
But all I remember
Are the dreams in the mist
These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when itís cold outside
Every moment Iím awake the further Iím away

Is it cloak ín dagger
Could it be spring or fall
I walk without a cut
Through a stained glass wall
Weaker in my eyesight
The candle in my grip
And words that have no form
Are falling from my lips

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when itís cold outside
Every moment Iím awake the further Iím away

Thereís something out there
I canít resist
I need to hide away from the pain
Thereís something out there
I canít resist
The sweetest song is silence
That Iíve ever heard
Funny how your feet
In dreams never touch the earth
In a wood full of princes
Freedom is a kiss
But the prince hides his face
From dreams in the mist

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when itís cold outside
Every moment Iím awake the further Iím away

The devil went down to Georgia. He was lookin' for a soul to steal. He was in a bind 'cause
he was way behind, and he was willin' to make a deal, when he came across this young man
sawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hot. And the devil jumped up on a hickory stump and said,
"Boy, let me tell you what.

I guess you didn't know it but I'm a fiddle player, too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll
make a bet with you. Now, you play pretty good fiddle, boy, but give the devil his due. I'll bet
a fiddle of gold against your soul, 'cause I think I'm better than you." The boy said, "My
name's Johnny, and it might be a sin. But I'll take your bet, you're gonna regret, 'cause I'm
the best that's ever been."

Johnny, rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard, 'cause hell's broke loose in Georgia and
the devil deals the cards. And if you win you get this shiny fiddle made of gold. But if you lose,
the devil gets your soul.

The devil opened up his case and he said, "I'll start this show." And fire flew from his fingertips
as he rosined up his bow. And he pulled the bow across the strings and it made an evil hiss.
Then a band of demons joined in and it sounded somethin' like this:

When the devil finished, Johnny said, "Well, you're pretty good, old son, but sit down in that
chair right there and let me show you how it's done.

Fire on the mountain. Run, boys, run. The devil's in the House of the Rising Sun. Chicken in the
bread pan pickin' out dough. Granny, does your dog bite? No, child, no.

The devil bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat. And he laid that golden fiddle
on the ground at Johnny's feet. Johnny said, "Devil, just come on back if you ever want to try
again. 'Cause I told you once, you son of a *****, I'm the best that's ever been."

Still enough
although I know you're not begging
still as the thoughts running through your mind
still enough
although I know you're not begging
give me a reason to make you mine

I will devour you
take all the pain away
I cannot stay my hand
from reaching out so that I can
empower you
for all eternity
it seems to ease my mind
to know that you've brought
meaning to my life

Had enough
although I see you're not running
still are the thoughts running through your mind
dead to love
the path that you are now taking
show me the reason to make you mine

I will devour you
take all the pain away
I cannot stay my hand
from reaching out so that I can
empower you
for all eternity
it seems to ease my mind
to know that you've brought
meaning to my life

Run to where the smallest ray of light will never find you
run to where you will not need to shield your eyes
run away from all the soulless, heartless feinds who hound you
run away and let your memories go blind

when I devour you
take all the pain away
I cannot stay my hand
from reaching out so that I can
empower you
for all eternity
it seems to ease my mind
to know that you've brought
meaning to my life

These Are The Days Of Our Lives
Written by Queen.
Sung by Freddie Mercury

Released as a double A-side with BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY 9th December, 1991. Winner of Brit Awards 'Best Single of 1991'. Despite being credited to Queen, according to the QMS, Roger Taylor holds the 'credit' for this song mainly because the majority of the lyrics were his work.

Sometimes I get to feelin'
I was back in the old days - long ago
When we were kids, when we were young
Things seemed so perfect - you know ?
The days were endless, we were crazy - we were young
The sun was always shinin' - we just lived for fun
Sometimes it seems like lately - I just don't know
The rest of my life's been - just a show

Those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing is true
When I look and I find I still love you

You can't turn back the clock, you can't turn back the tide
Ain't that a shame ?
Ooh, I'd like to go back one time on a roller coaster ride
When life was just a game
No use in sitting and thinkin' on what you did
When you can lay back and enjoy it through your kids
Sometimes it seems like lately - I just don't know
Better sit back and go - with the flow

'Cos these are the days of our lives
They've flown in the swiftness of time
These days are all gone now but some things remain
When I look and I find - no change

Those were the days of our lives yeah
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing's still true
When I look and I find, I still love you
I still love you

Innuendo
Written by Queen.
Sung by Freddie Mercury.

Released 14th January, 1991. Entered Mainstream Rock charts at number 1 and spent 5 weeks in chart.

While the sun hangs in the sky and the desert has sand
While the waves crash in the sea and meet the land
While there's a wind and the stars and the rainbow
Till the mountains crumble into the plain

Oh yes, we'll keep on trying
Tread that fine line
Oh, we'll keep on trying
Just passing our time

While we live according to race, colour or creed
While we rule by blind madness and pure greed
Our lives dictated by tradition, superstition, false religion
Through the eons and on and on

Oh, yes, we'll keep on trying, yeah
We'll tread that fine line
Oh oh we'll keep on trying
Till the end of time
Till the end of time

Through the sorrow all through our splendour
Don't take offence at my innuendo
Innuendo
Innuendo

(bridge)

You can be anything you want to be
Just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be
Be free with your tempo, be free, be free
Surrender your ego - be free, be free to yourself

(solo)

If there's a God or any kind of justice under the sky
If there's a point, if there's a reason to live or die
If there's an answer to the questions we feel bound to ask
Show yourself - destroy our fears - release your mask
Oh yes, we'll keep on trying
Hey, tread that fine line
(Yeah)We'll keep on smiling,
And whatever will be - will be
We'll just keep on trying
We'll just keep on trying
Till the end of time
Till the end of time
Till the end of time

I'm a simple man
With a simple name
From this soil my people came
In this soil remain

We made us our shoes
We trod soft on the land
But the immigrant built roads
On our blood and sand


White man, White man
Don't you see the light behind your blackened skies
White man, White man
You took away the sight to blind my simple eyes
White man, White man
Where you gonna hide
From the hell you've made ?

Oh the Red man knows war
With his hands and his knives
On your Bible you swore
But fought your battle with lies

Leave my body in shame
Leave my soul in disgrace
But by every God's name
Say your prayers for your race

White man, White man
Our country was green and all our rivers wide
White man, White man
You came with a gun and soon our children died
White man, White man
Don't you give a light for the blood you've shed


Oh White man, White man (White man)
White man, White man
Fought your battle with lies, yeah
White man, White man - but weren't too civilised yeah
White man, White man
Take a look around
Every skin and bone


What is left of your dream ?
Just the words on your stone
A man who learned how to teach
Then forgot how to learn

A very cool tune rarely heard in the U.S. by the defunct British band Kitchens of Distinction. I think its out of print. "Now It's Time To Say Goodbye."


All the stones inside my head
Were carefully removed
By the doctor's perfumed scarlet hands
She delved in deep for your savage teeth
That sparkled diamonds fire blue
Eating me and thrilling you
The voices have now gone
I'm looking forward to living alone

Now it's time to say goodbye
I won't stay around to be hurt by careless words
So here's the jar of your hate
Returned complete, sincerely yours, fully restored

But peace perfect peace
Could belong to me I'd bottle it
For love's like the sea
They're hungry gods with careless hands
That wrap themselves around our lives
So hard to resist
They swallowed me, you swallowed me
I closed my eyes, I disappeared

Now it's time to say goodbye
I won't stay around to be hurt by careless words

No, I suppose it's colder when you're dead
Your violent gift, I bottled it
Now it's gone, I'm in bloom

Give me strength give me hope
Give me no-one new to hold
If I saw you lately what would I say?
Give me peace please walk away
You have nothing new to say
If I saw you falling how wide could I smile?

Hi de ho
Hi de hi
Gonna get me
A piece of the pie
Gonna get me
Some of that old sweet roll
Singin' Hi de hi de hi de hi de ho

I've been down so low
Bottom looked like up
Once I thought that seconds saves
Was enough to fill my cup
So I proffered all I got
But it ain't no way to live
Being taken by the ones who got
The least amount to give

Hi de ho
Hi de hi
Gonna get me a piece of the sky
Gonna get me some of that old sweet roll
Singing hi de hi de hi de hi de ho

Once I met the devil
He was mighty slick
Tempted me with worldly goods
Said 'you can have your pick'
But when he laid that paper on me
And he showed me where to sign
I said thank you very kindly
But I'm in too good a mood to mind

Hi de ho
Hi de hi
Gonna get me a piece of the sky
Gonna get me some of that old sweet roll
Singin' hi de hi de hi de hi de ho

A pleasant faced man steps up to greet you
He smiles and says heís pleased to meet you
Beneath his hat the strangeness lies
Take it off, heís got three eyes
Truth is false and logic lost
Now the fourth dimension is crossed

You have entered the twilight zone
Beyond this world strange things are known
Use the key, unlock the door
See what your fate might have in store
Come explore your dreamsí creation
Enter this world of imagination

Wake up lost in an empty town
Wondering why no one else is around
Look up to see a giant boy
Youíve just become his brand new toy
No escape, no place to hide
Here where time and space collide

You got the same command
Plus your mother was a jazz singer

To walk along the lonely street of dreams

To turn about you

Who are only destroying themselves

We're setting sail to the place on the map
From which no one has ever returned.
Torn by the promise of the joker and the fool
By the light of crosses that burn.
Torn by the promise of the women and the lace
And the gold an the cotton and pearls.
It's the place where they keep all the darkness you meet.
You sail away from the light of the world.

You will pay tomorrow.
You're gonna pay tomorrow.
You will pay tomorrow.

Oh! Save me.
Save me from tomorrow.
I don't want to sail with this ship of fools.
Oh! Save me.
Save me from tomorrow.
I don't want to sail with this ship of fools.
I want to run and hide.
Right now.

Avarice and greed are gonna drive you over the endless seas.
They will leave you drifting in the shallows.
Drowning in the oceans of history.
Traveling the world, you're in search of the good,
But I'm sure you're
Using all the good people for your gallant slaves
As your little ... struggles through the the warning waves.
You will pay.
You're gonna pay tomorrow.
You're gonna pay tomorrow.
Oh! Save me.
Save me from tomorrow.
I don't want to sail with this ship of fools.
Oh! Save me.

But I must have used the wrong car
My head was in a bad place
And I'm wondering what it's good for

But it must have been the wrong time
My head was in a place
But I'm having such a good time

Got to give myself a little talking to this time

Just need a little brain salad surgery
Got to cure this insecurity

But it must have been the right time
I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong song
I been in the right vein
But it seems like the wrong arm
I been in the right world
But it seems wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong

Slipping, dodging ,sneaking
Creeping hiding out down the street
See me life shaking with every who I meet
Refried confusion is making itself clear
Wonder which way do I go to get on out of here

It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Janey was lovely she was the queen of my nights
There in the darkness with the radio playing low
And the secrets that we shared
The mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control
'Til there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove
And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me oh so tight
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

Against the wind
We were runnin' against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin'
Against the wind

The years rolled slowly past
And I found myself alone
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends
I found myself further and further from my home
And I guess I lost my way
There were oh so many roads
I was living to run and running to live
Never worryied about paying or even how much I owed
Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that would bend
I began to find myself searching
Searching for shelter again and again

Against the wind
A little something against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter sgainst the wind

Well those drifter's days are past me now
I've got so much more to think about
Deadlines and commitments
What to leave in, what to leave out

Against the wind
I'm still runnin' against the wind
I'm older now but still runnin' against the wind
Well I'm older now and still runnin'
Against the wind
Against the wind
Against the wind

Still runnin'
I'm still runnin' against the wind
I'm still runnin'
I'm still runnin' against the wind
Still runnin'
Runnin' against the wind
Runnin' against the wind
See the young man run
Watch the young man run
Watch the young man runnin'
He'll be runnin' against the wind
Let the cowboys ride
Let the cowboys ride
They'll be ridin' against the wind
Against the wind ...

To be free

Never will ignore
But when I see you coming
I can take it all
Youíre so fine
Lose my mind
And the world seems to disappear
All the problems
All the fears
And the world seems to disappear

Say youíre mine
And give yourself to the
Feelings that you know

All that you can give me
All the things

Words are healing
Sweet anticipation
Making spells
As the shadows close in
Fall across all our yesterdays

Disappear
Disappear

Disappear
Disappear

Look into myself and reason
But I could never never see or

Make me realise all that I am

Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
Iíve stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains,
Iíve walked and Iíve crawled on six crooked highways,
Iíve stepped in the middle of seven sad forests,
Iíve been out in front of a dozen dead oceans,
Iíve been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard,
And itís a hard, and itís a hard, itís a hard, and itís a hard,
And itís a hard rainís a-gonna fall.

Oh, what did you see, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, what did you see, my darling young one?
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it,
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippiní,
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleediní,
I saw a white ladder all covered with water,
I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken,
I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children,
And itís a hard, and itís a hard, itís a hard, itís a hard,
And itís a hard rainís a-gonna fall.

And what did you hear, my blue-eyed son?
And what did you hear, my darling young one?
I heard the sound of a thunder, it roared out a warniní,
Heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world,
Heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a-blaziní,
Heard ten thousand whisperiní and nobody listeniní,
Heard one person starve, I heard many people laughiní,
Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter,
Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley,
And itís a hard, and itís a hard, itís a hard, itís a hard,
And itís a hard rainís a-gonna fall.

Oh, who did you meet, my blue-eyed son?
Who did you meet, my darling young one?
I met a young child beside a dead pony,
I met a white man who walked a black dog,
I met a young woman whose body was burning,
I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow,
I met one man who was wounded in love,
I met another man who was wounded with hatred,
And itís a hard, itís a hard, itís a hard, itís a hard,
Itís a hard rainís a-gonna fall.

Oh, whatíll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, whatíll you do now, my darling young one?
Iím a-goiní back out ífore the rain starts a-falliní,
Iíll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest,
Where the people are many and their hands are all empty,
Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters,
Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison,
Where the executionerís face is always well hidden,
Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten,
Where black is the color, where none is the number,
And Iíll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it,
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it,
Then Iíll stand on the ocean until I start sinkiní,
But Iíll know my song well before I start singiní,
And itís a hard, itís a hard, itís a hard, itís a hard,
Itís a hard rainís a-gonna fall.

If we still have time, we might still get by
Every time I think about it, I wanna cry
With bombs and the devil, and the kids keep comin'
No way to breathe easy, no time to be young

But I tell myself that I was doin' all right
There's nothin' left to do at night
But to go crazy on you
Crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you, oh

My love is the evenin' breeze touchin' your skin
The gentle, sweet singin' of leaves in the wind
The whisper that calls after you in the night
And kisses your ear in the early moonlight
And you don't need to wonder, you're doing fine
My love, the pleasure's mine Let me go crazy on ya
Crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you, ohhh

Wild man's world is cryin' in pain
What you gonna do when everybody's insane
So afraid of one who's so afraid of you
What you gonna do...ohhh...

Ah-ah-ah-ah

Ooooo...Crazy on ya
Crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you

I was a willow last night in my dream
I bent down over a clear running stream
Sang you the song that I heard up above
And you kept me alive with your sweet flowing love

Ah-ah-ah-ah

Crazy on ya
Crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you, ohhh...

She keeps moet et chandon
In her pretty cabinet
ílet them eat cakeí she says
Just like marie antoinette
A built-in remedy
For kruschev and kennedy
At anytime an invitation
You canít decline

Caviar and cigarettes
Well versed in etiquette
Extraordinarily
Sheís a killer queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Anytime

Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?

To avoid complications
She never kept the same address
In conversation
She spoke just like a baroness
Met a man from china
Went down to geisha minah
Then again incidentally
If youíre that way inclined

Perfume came naturally from paris
For cars she couldnít care less
Fastidious and precious

Drop of a hat sheís as willing as
Playful as a ***** cat
Then momentarily out of action
Temporarily out of gas
To absolutely drive you wild, wild..
Sheís all out to get you

Insatiable an appetite

It's a hot summer night in the blackboard jungle
Crime sits heavy on the city shoulder
Can't get no work, I can't get a job
I just sit and play my radio in the parking lot
Well they're breaking down doors in foreign countries
Everybody thinks somebody's hiding something
There's talk on the street and the nation is worried
But you can't talk back when you're dead, when you're dead and
buried
And Everybody's restless
Everybody's scared
Everybody's looking for something that just ain't there
Everybody's restless
Everybody's scared, they think we're all in danger
Everyone's taking cover from someone else's anger
The walls have ears, Big Brother's watching
They tell us that we're poisoned from everything that we're
touching
Well we could be children from the way we're acting
We feed ourselves lies and then we scream for action
We just breed and we lose our nerve
And there's bombs going off in every corner of the world

What was it like to see
The face of your own stability
Suddenly look away
Leaving you with the dead and hopeless?

Eleven and she was gone.
Eleven is when we waved good-bye.
Eleven is standing still,
Waiting for me to free him
By coming home.

Moving me with a sound.
Opening me within a gesture.
Drawing me down and in,
Showing me where it all began,
Eleven.

It took so long to realize that
You hold the light thatís been leading me back home.

Under a dead ohio sky,
Eleven has been and will be waiting,
Defending his light,
And wondering...
Where the hell have I been?
Sleeping, lost, and numb.
So glad that I have found you.
I am wide awake and heading home.

Hold your light,
Eleven.
Lead me through each gentle step by step
By inch by loaded memory.

Iíll move to heal
As soon as pain allows so we can
Reunite and both move on together.

Hold your light,
Eleven. lead me through each gentle step by step
By inch by loaded memory
ítill one and one are one, eleven,
So glow, child, glow.

Iím heading back home.

Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin' high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
"we'll meet on edges, soon," said i
Proud 'neath heated brow.
Ah, but i was so much older then,
i'm younger than that now.

Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
"rip down all hate," i screamed
Lies that life is black and white
Spoke from my skull. i dreamed
Romantic facts of musketeers
Foundationed deep, somehow.
Ah, but i was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Girls' faces formed the forward path
From phony jealousy
To memorizing politics
Of ancient history
Flung down by corpse evangelists
Unthought of, though, somehow.
Ah, but i was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

A self-ordained professor's tongue
Too serious to fool
Spouted out that liberty
Is just equality in school
"equality," i spoke the word
As if a wedding vow.
Ah, but i was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

In a soldier's stance, i aimed my hand
At the mongrel dogs who teach
Fearing not that i'd become my enemy
In the instant that i preach
My existence led by confusion boats
Mutiny from stern to bow.
Ah, but i was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats
Too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking
I had something to protect
Good and bad, i define these terms
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow.
Ah, but i was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Flyin' like an aeroplane
Feelin' like a space brain

Well I'm a west coast struttin'

Got a rattlesnake suitcase
Under my arm
Said I'm a mean machine
Been drinkin' gasoline
An honey you can make my motor hum
I got one chance left
In a nine live cat
I got a dog eat dog sly smile
I got a Molotov cocktail with a match to go
I smoke my cigarette with style
An I can tell you honey
You can make my money tonight

Wake up late honey put on your clothes
Take your credit card to the liquor store
That's one for you and two for me by tonight
I'll be
Loaded like a freight train
Flyin' like an aeroplane
Feelin' like a space brain
One more time tonight

Bottoms up

Fill my cup

Ready to crash and burn

Loaded like a freight train
Flyin' like an aeroplane
Speedin' like a space brain

Roy Orbison's In Dreams ( One of the Best Songs EVER IMHO )

In Dreams
Roy Orbison
A candy-colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper
"Go to sleep. Everything is all right."

I close my eyes, Then I drift away
Into the magic night. I softly say
A silent prayerLike dreamers do.
Then I fall asleep to dream My dreams of you.

In dreams I walk with you. In dreams I talk to you.
In dreams you're mine. All of the time we're together
In dreams, In dreams.

But just before the dawn, I awake and find you gone.
I can't help it, I can't help it, if I cry.
I remember that you said goodbye.

It's too bad that all these things, Can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams In beautiful dreams.

I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you

This love is only gonna break your heart

To make me dream of you
And I don't wanna fall in love

And I don't want to fall in love
This love is only gonna break your heart

Begin the day
With a friendly voice
A companion, unobtrusive
Plays that song thatís so elusive
And the magic music makes your morning mood

Off on your way
Hit the open road
There is magic at your fingers
For the spirit ever lingers
Undemanding contact
In your happy solitude

Invisible airwaves
Crackle with life
Bright antennae bristle
With the energy
Emotional feedback
On a timeless wavelength
Bearing a gift beyond price ---
Almost free...

All this machinery
Making modern music
Can still be open-hearted
Not so coldly charted
Itís really just a question
Of your honesty

One likes to believe
In the freedom of music
But glittering prizes
And endless compromises
Shatter the illusion
Of integrity

For the words of the profits
Are written on the studio wall,
Concert hall ---
Echoes with the sounds...
Of salesmen.

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but itís sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but youíre older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the english way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought Iíd something more to say

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
And when I come home cold and tired
Itís good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells.

ALWAYS

By Saliva


I hear, a voice say Don't be so blind
It's telling me all these things, that you would probably hide
Am I, your one and only desire
Am I the reason you breathe, or am I the reason you cry

Always... always... always... always... always... always...
I just can't live without you

I love you, I hate you, I canít get around you
I breathe you, I taste you, I can't live without you
I just can't take anymore, this life of solitude
I guess that I'm out the door and now I'm done with you

Done with you, done with you, done with you, done with you,done with you

I feel, like you don't want me around
I guess I'll pack all my things, I guess I'll see you around
It's all been bottled up until now
As I walk out your door, all I can hear is the sound of

Always... always... always... always... always... always...
I just can't live without you

I love you, I hate you, I canít get around you
I breathe you, I taste you, I can't live without you
I just can't take anymore, this life of solitude
I guess that I'm out the door and now I'm done with you

I love you, I hate you, I can't live without you

I wrapped my head around your heart
Why would you tear my world apart?

Always... always... always... always...

I see, the blood all over your hands
Does it make you feel, more like a man?
Was it all, just a part of your plan
The pistol's shaking in my hands and all I hear is the sound

I love you, I hate you, I can't get around you
I breathe you, I taste you, I canít live without you
I just can't take anymore, this life of solitude
I guess that I'm out the door and now I'm done with you

I love you, I hate you, I can't live without you
I love you, I hate you, I can't live without you
I just can't take anymore, this life of solitude
I pick myself off the floor and now I'm done with you

The walls are closing in
I can't stand the feeling
Here it comes again
I thought I heard a heartbeat
But you ain't here
I thought I heard a heartbeat
Night sounds like silence
Sorrow in the air
I hear something breathing
But there ain't no-one there
I thought I heard a heartbeat
But you ain't here
Close my eyes and a face appears
Faded picture rolling back the years
Holding on to a memory
Same sweet sound - coming back to me

Temperature's rising
The walls are closing in
I can't stand that feeling
Here it comes again
I thought I heard a heartbeat
But you ain't here
I thought I heard a heartbeat
But you ain't here
I thought I heard a heartbeat
I thought I heard a heartbeat
I thought I heard a heartbeat...

He take the thunder from the mountain, he take the lightning from the sky,
He bring the strong man to his begging knee, he make the young girlís mama cry.

You got to hidey-hide, you got to jump and run;
You got to hidey-hidey-hide, the old man is down the road.

He got the voices speak in riddles, he got the eye as black as coal,
He got a suitcase covered with rattlesnake hide, and he stands right in the road.

You got to hidey-hide, you got to jump up run away;
You got to hidey-hidey-hide, the old man is down the road.

Aaah!

He make the river call your lover, he make the barking of the hound,
Put a shadow ícross the window, when the old man comes around.

You got to hidey-hide, you got to jump and run again;
You got to hidey-hidey-hide, the old man is down the road.
The old man is down the road.

Aaah!
You got ta, you got ta, you got ta, hidey-hidey-hide!

It was late at night on the open road, speeding like a man on the run
A lifetime spent preparing for the journey.
He is closer now and the search is on, reading from a map in the mind:
Yes thereís that ragged hill and thereís a boat on the river.

And when the rain came down, he heard a wild dog howl
There were voices in the night
donít do it!
Voices out of sight
donít do it!
Too many men have failed before, whatever you do;

Donít pay the ferryman!
Donít even fix a price!
Donít pay the ferryman
Until he gets you to the other side.

In the rolling mist, then he gets on board, now thereíll be no turning back
Beware that hooded old man at the rudder.
And then the lightning flashed and the thunder roared,
And people calling out his name,
And dancing bones that jabbered-and-a-moaned on the water.

And then the ferryman said there is trouble ahead,
So you must pay me now.
donít do it!
You must pay me now.
donít do it!
And still that voice came from beyond, whatever you do;

Donít pay the ferryman!
Donít even fix a price!
Donít pay the ferryman
Until he gets you to the other side.

About a love that was sure to end
Every dream in her heart was gone
Headiní for a showdown

Bad dreamer, whatís your name
Looks like weíre ridiní on the same train
Looks as through thereíll be more pain
Thereís gonna be a showdown

And itís raininí all over the world
Itís raining all over the world
Tonight, the longest night

She came to me like a friend
She blew in on a southern wind
Now my heart is turned to stone again
Thereís gonna be a showdown

Thereís gonna be a showdown

And itís raininí all over the world

Standing in the rain, with his head hung low
Couldnít get a ticket, it was a sold out show
Heard the roar of the crowd, he could picture the scene
Put his ear to the wall, then like a distant scream

He heard one guitar, just blew him away
He saw stars in his eyes, and the very next day
Bought a beat up six string in a secondhand store
Didnít know how to play it, but he knew for sure

That one guitar, felt good in his hands
Didnít take long, to understand
Just one guitar, slung way down low
Was one way ticket, only one way to go

So he started rockiní
Ainít never gonna stop
Gotta keep on rockiní
Someday heís gonna make it to the top

And be a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
Heís a juke box hero
He took one guitar, juke box hero, stars in his eyes
Juke box hero, heíll come alive tonight

In a town without a name, in a heavy downpour
Thought he passed his own shadow, by the backstage door
Like a trip through the past, to that day in the rain
And that one guitar made his whole life change

Now he needs to keep rockiní
He just canít stop
Gotta keep on rockiní
That boy has got to stay on top

And be a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
Heís a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
Yeah, juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
With that one guitar heíll come alive
Come alive tonight

Yeah, heís gotta keep rockiní
He just canít stop
Gotta keep on rockiní
That boy has got to stay on top

And be a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
Heís a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
Just one guitar, put stars in his eyes
Heís just a juke box hero, aah aah aah
Juke box hero, juke box hero, heís got stars in his eyes
Stars in his eyes --- :rockon: --- :rockon: --- :rockon:

A Place for my Head

By Linkin Park


I watch how the
Moon sits in the sky / in the dark night
Shining with the light from the sun
The sun doesn't give / light to the moon assuming
The moonís going to owe it one
It makes me think of how you act to me / You do
Favors and then rapidly / You just
Turn around and start asking me / about
Things you want back from me
Iím sick of the tension / sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place / to feed your greed -
While I find a place to rest
I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you donít understand
(Youíll see it's not meant to be)
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head
Maybe someday Iíll be just like you / and
Step on people like you do and / Run
Away the people I thought I knew
I remember back then who you were
You used to be calm / used to be strong
Used to be generous / but you shouldíve known / That youíd
Wear out your welcome / now you see
How quiet it is / all alone / Iím so
Sick of the tension / sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place / to feed your greed -
While / I find a place to rest / Iím so
Sick of the tension / sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place / to feed your greed -
While / I find a place to rest
You try to take the best of me
Go away

She didn't know what she was headed for
And when I found what she was headed for
It was too late

She's come undone
She found a mountain that was far too high
And when she found out she couldn't fly
It was too late

It's too late
She's gone too far
She's lost the sun
She's come undone
She wanted truth but all she got was lies
Came the time to realize
And it was too late

She's come undone
She didn't know what she was headed for
And when I found what she was headed for
Mama, it was too late

It's too late
She's gone too far
She's lost the sun
She's come undone

Too many mountains, and not enough stairs to climb
Too many churches and not enough truth
Too many people and not enough eyes to see
Too many lives to lead and not enough time

It's too late

In your arms
Attempting to make sense
Of my aching heart
If I could just be
Everything and everyone to you
This life would just be so easy

Not enough time for all
That I want for you
Not enough time for every kiss
And every touch and all the nights
I wanna be inside you

We will make time stop
For the two of us
Make time stop
And listen for our sighs

Not enough time for all
That I want for you
Not enough time for every kiss
And every touch and all the nights
I wanna be inside you

In our fight against the end
Making love we are immortal
We are the last two left on earth
And I was lost for words
In your arms
Attempting to make sense of
My aching heart
If I could just be everything
And everyone to you

Not enough time for all

Not enough time for every kiss
Not enough time for all my love

Maybe for the only time in my life
Something in the air
Turning me around and guiding me right

And itís a prime time, maybe the stars were right
I had a premonition, itís gonna be my turn tonight
Gonna be my turn tonight

Well even the brightest star wonít shine forever
But all of the hands I play are working out right
And every move I make feels like a winner

Something in the air
Maybe for the only time in my life

Turning me around and guiding me right

To include everyone

Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never never land

Somethingís wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they arenít of snow white

Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragonís fire
And of things that will bite

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never never land

Now I lay me down to sleep
Pray the lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
Pray the lord my soul to take

Hush little baby, donít say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
Itís just the beast under your bed,
In your closet, in your head

Take my hand

Through the eons, and on and on
Oh yes weíll keep on tryiní
Weíll tread that fine line
Oh weíll keep on tryiní
Till the end of time
Till the end of time

Through the sorrow all through our splendour
Donít take offence at my innuendo

You can be anything you want to be
Just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be
Be free with your tempo, be free be free
Surrender your ego - be free, be free to yourself

Oooh, ooh -
If thereís a God or any kind of justice under the sky
If thereís a point, if thereís a reason to live or die
If thereís an answer to the questions we feel bound to ask
Show yourself - destroy our fears - release your mask
Oh yes weíll keep on trying
Hey tread that fine line
Yeah weíll keep on smiling yeah
And whatever will be - will be
Weíll just keep on trying
Weíll just keep on trying

Only the lonely will stand.

The sky is falling on this setting sun.
Echoes of silence ringing loud and long.

A lost horizon in an ocean of flames.

I own em all except "X" (mostly because I just haven't gotten around to it).

OTTN and HND are my faves from a musician stand point. More fun to play.

As their songs got better, they got simpler. Which is ok, but the production values were so good that they sounded better on the radio.


I was going to post "Overture", but really, in retrospect, it reads like they were trying to be like Iron Maiden or something. A little overdone.

I just got the new double disc set because all of mine are either on vinyl or cassette. Having a cd version of the hits is great for driving.

Great intro on the beginning of Overture

Yeah, I like the earlier edgier sound to their first few albums, I have a BBC bootleg from their early days, and abunch of still unreleased tracks and covers.

Still like them overall even if they went more into a porwer ballad mode the last few albums. I bought the new collection, even though I had the previous 10 cds, haven't found a place that has Waterloo Sunset from the European release, maybe they will include it on their Septembers release of cover tunes.

Pretty much put 130 of their tracks on the Ipod... love that little sucker.

I keep hearing about "WS" and other covers b-sides. I only buy the full length albums, not singles or imports. Even for my all time fave, KISS.

But the covers thing sounds intruiging. I would really prefer more melodic hard rock songs like Paper Sun and Tear It Down, since songs like "Lady Strange" probably are never coming back. They have always had pop sensibilities, but where are the guitars lately?

Elway
06-08-2005, 11:10 PM
I kind of liked Deliver me more than Paper sun.

Guitars gave way to the overlapping melodies I guess. Proably partial due to the passing of Clark. He was awesome to see play live.

E-bayed it for some importsand singles, then after a while I got smarter. I let other people compile the rarities & b-sides on a collection and then bought a copy.

Managed to get covers of them doing Little Wing, Can't always get what you want, Rebel rebel, Ziggy Stardust, Only after Dark and Tie your mother down.

In an interview they said they would love to do the harder edge rock they started off with, but were told no one would play them unless they did the softer stuff, so they try to sneak one or two harder tunes on each release.

They have been around 25 years. They should do whatever the hell they want. Vivian Campbell's songs from his Dio/Sabbath days are heavy. He can write and play like a mofo. Not a replacement for Clark, but just as capable of brining a dark edge to the music.

Of course, I knwo they love that brit glam from the 70's too.

Hey, roll over DJ, if you don't mind
Well I know that you think you're the star
A pill poppin' jukebox is all that you are
So tell me it ain't that way
What's you're name?
Hey roll over DJ
You're spinning away
On my time
Hey, who cares what you play
Say whatever you say, cause I don't mind
Hey roll over DJ if you don't mind
Hey roll over DJ
You're spinning away
On my time
Hey, who cares what you play
Say whatever you say, cause I don't mind
Hey roll over DJ if you don't mind
Hey roll over DJ if you don't mind
Hey roll over DJ if you don't mind
