Shanice - I love your smile



sittin' in my class, just drifting away
staring into the windows of the world
i can't hear the teacher, his books don't call me at all
i don't see the bad boys tryin' to
catch some play...

cause i love your smile
i love your smile

the clock at work says three,
and i
wanna be free
free to scream, free to bathe, free to paint
my toes all day
my boss is lame you know, and so is the pay
i'm gonna put my new black mini
on my charge anyway

cause i love your smile
i love your smile

(bridge)
time came and showed me your direction
now i know i'll never ever go back
taught me that
i can be a better girl with love you give
you rock my world
you dig

(rap breakdown)
i'm showin' the life that i'm livin
this is the life that i have,
and it's given to you
yeh and it's true
la-d-da
twinkley d
do you
believe in a girl like me
Shanice is the one
for you to be with
but when I'm caught
all alone
i start fessin'
it's from a state of depression
and the thunder clouds of doubt move in
i begin to wonder "do you still love me?" but after that
my whole world is beautiful

blow branford blow

smile...psych

cause i love your smile
i love your smile

This song is old, but I only recently really paid attention to it. I think I should downl.. oops buy some of Shanice's CDs cause she might be an artist I really like :)

Shanice? She's a one hit wonder! But I'm old enough to actually remember when that song was a hit! Feel good song by a cute singer!

Now, about some real music! One of my fav bands is Uriah Heep! And here's a song with some eloquent lyrics!

Uriah Heep - Lady in Black

She came to me one morning
One lonely Sunday morning
Her long hair flowing
In the midwinter wind
I know not how she found me
For in darkness I was walking
And destruction lay around me
From a fight I could not win
Ah ah ah ...

She asked me name my foe then
I said the need within some men
To fight and kill their brothers
Without thought of love or God
And I begged her give me horses
To trample down my enemies
So eager was my passion
To devour this waste of life
Ah ah ah ...

But she wouldn't think of battle that
Reduces men to animals
So easy to begin
And yet impossible to end
For she's the mother of all men
had counselled me so wisely then
I feared to walk alone again
And asked if she would stay
Ah ah ah ...

Oh lady lend your hand I cried
And let me rest here at your side
Have faith and trust
In me she said
And filled my heart with life
There is no strength in numbers
I 've no such misconception
But when you need me
Be assured I won't be far away
Ah ah ah ...

Thus having spoke she turned away
And though I found no words to say
I stood and watched until I saw
Her black cloak disappear
My labour is no easier
But now I know I'm not alone
I find new heart each time
I think upon that windy day
And if one day she comes to you
Drink deeply from her words so wise
Take courage from her
As your prize
And say hello from me
Ah ah ah ...

Nice idea for a thread Martijn! :yeah: I'll post more songs later! Now it's bedtime!

John Mayer 3X5

I'm writing you to
catch you up on places I've been
You held this letter
probably got excited, but there's nothing else inside it
didn't have a camera by my side this time
hoping I would see the world through both my eyes
maybe I will tell you all about it when I'm
in the mood to lose my way with words
TODAY skies are painted colors of a cowboy cliche'
And strange how clouds that look like mountains in the sky
are next to mountains anyway
Didn't have a camera by my side this time
Hoping I would see the world through both my eyes
Maybe I will tell you all about it when I'm
in the mood to lose my way
but let me say
You should have seen that sunrise with your own eyes
it brought me back to life
You'll be with me next time I go outside
NO more 3x5's
I Guess you had to be there
I Guess you had to be with me
Today I finally overcame
tryin' to fit the world inside a picture frame
Maybe I will tell you all about it when I'm in the mood to
lose my way but let me say
You should have seen that sunrise with your own eyes
it brought me back to life
You'll be with me next time I go outside
no more 3x5's
just no more 3x5's

For Purple Rainbow, who wanted more eloquent lyrics ;)

Savage Garden - Two Beds and a Coffee Machine


and she takes another step
slowly she opens the door
check that he is sleeping
pick up all the broken glass
and furniture on the floor
been up half the night screaming
now it's time to get away
pack up the kids in the car
another bruise to try and hide
another alibi to write
another ditch in the road
you keep moving
another stop sign
you keep moving on
and the years go by so fast
wonder how I ever made it through

and there are children to think of
baby's asleep in the back seat
wonder how they'll ever make it
through this living nightmare
but the mind is an amazing thing
full of candy dreams and new toys
and another cheap hotel
two beds and a coffee machine
but there are groceries to buy
and she knows she'll have to go home

another ditch in the road
you keep moving
another stop sign
you keep moving on
and the years go by so fast
wonder how I ever made it through

another bruise to try and hide
another alibi to write
another lonely highway in the black of night
there's hope in the darkness
I know you're gonna make it

another ditch in the road
keep moving
another stop sign
you keep moving on
and the years go by so fast
silent fortress built to last
wonder how I ever made it


I am a big fan, so expect more SG lyrics here ;)

Some of the longest lyrics ever, and some of the most fun: :cool:

Alice's Restaurant
By Arlo Guthrie



This song is called Alice's Restaurant, and it's about Alice, and the
restaurant, but Alice's Restaurant is not the name of the restaurant,
that's just the name of the song, and that's why I called the song Alice's
Restaurant.

You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant
You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant
Walk right in it's around the back
Just a half a mile from the railroad track
You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant

Now it all started two Thanksgivings ago, was on - two years ago on
Thanksgiving, when my friend and I went up to visit Alice at the
restaurant, but Alice doesn't live in the restaurant, she lives in the
church nearby the restaurant, in the bell-tower, with her husband Ray and
Fasha the dog. And livin' in the bell tower like that, they got a lot of
room downstairs where the pews used to be in. Havin' all that room,
seein' as how they took out all the pews, they decided that they didn't
have to take out their garbage for a long time.

We got up there, we found all the garbage in there, and we decided it'd be
a friendly gesture for us to take the garbage down to the city dump. So
we took the half a ton of garbage, put it in the back of a red VW
microbus, took shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed
on toward the city dump.

Well we got there and there was a big sign and a chain across across the
dump saying, "Closed on Thanksgiving." And we had never heard of a dump
closed on Thanksgiving before, and with tears in our eyes we drove off
into the sunset looking for another place to put the garbage.

We didn't find one. Until we came to a side road, and off the side of the
side road there was another fifteen foot cliff and at the bottom of the
cliff there was another pile of garbage. And we decided that one big pile
is better than two little piles, and rather than bring that one up we
decided to throw our's down.

That's what we did, and drove back to the church, had a thanksgiving
dinner that couldn't be beat, went to sleep and didn't get up until the
next morning, when we got a phone call from officer Obie. He said, "Kid,
we found your name on an envelope at the bottom of a half a ton of
garbage, and just wanted to know if you had any information about it." And
I said, "Yes, sir, Officer Obie, I cannot tell a lie, I put that envelope
under that garbage."

After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
and pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
police officer's station. So we got in the red VW microbus with the
shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
police officer's station.

Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
the police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
we didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
and told us never to be see driving garbage around the vicinity again,
which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
there was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
both immediately arrested. Handcuffed. And I said "Obie, I don't think I
can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on." He said, "Shut up, kid.
Get in the back of the patrol car."

And that's what we did, sat in the back of the patrol car and drove to the
quote Scene of the Crime unquote. I want tell you about the town of
Stockbridge, Massachusets, where this happened here, they got three stop
signs, two police officers, and one police car, but when we got to the
Scene of the Crime there was five police officers and three police cars,
being the biggest crime of the last fifty years, and everybody wanted to
get in the newspaper story about it. And they was using up all kinds of
cop equipment that they had hanging around the police officer's station.
They was taking plaster tire tracks, foot prints, dog smelling prints, and
they took twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy photographs with circles
and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each
one was to be used as evidence against us. Took pictures of the approach,
the getaway, the northwest corner the southwest corner and that's not to
mention the aerial photography.

After the ordeal, we went back to the jail. Obie said he was going to put
us in the cell. Said, "Kid, I'm going to put you in the cell, I want your
wallet and your belt." And I said, "Obie, I can understand you wanting my
wallet so I don't have any money to spend in the cell, but what do you
want my belt for?" And he said, "Kid, we don't want any hangings." I
said, "Obie, did you think I was going to hang myself for littering?"
Obie said he was making sure, and friends Obie was, cause he took out the
toilet seat so I couldn't hit myself over the head and drown, and he took
out the toilet paper so I couldn't bend the bars roll out the - roll the
toilet paper out the window, slide down the roll and have an escape. Obie
was making sure, and it was about four or five hours later that Alice
(remember Alice? It's a song about Alice), Alice came by and with a few
nasty words to Obie on the side, bailed us out of jail, and we went back
to the church, had a another thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat,
and didn't get up until the next morning, when we all had to go to court.

We walked in, sat down, Obie came in with the twenty seven eight-by-ten
colour glossy pictures with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back
of each one, sat down. Man came in said, "All rise." We all stood up,
and Obie stood up with the twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy
pictures, and the judge walked in sat down with a seeing eye dog, and he
sat down, we sat down. Obie looked at the seeing eye dog, and then at the
twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy pictures with circles and arrows
and a paragraph on the back of each one, and looked at the seeing eye dog.
And then at twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy pictures with circles
and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one and began to cry,
'cause Obie came to the realization that it was a typical case of American
blind justice, and there wasn't nothing he could do about it, and the
judge wasn't going to look at the twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy
pictures with the circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each
one explaining what each one was to be used as evidence against us. And
we was fined $50 and had to pick up the garbage in the snow, but thats not
what I came to tell you about.

Came to talk about the draft.

They got a building down New York City, it's called Whitehall Street,
where you walk in, you get injected, inspected, detected, infected,
neglected and selected. I went down to get my physical examination one
day, and I walked in, I sat down, got good and drunk the night before, so
I looked and felt my best when I went in that morning. `Cause I wanted to
look like the all-American kid from New York City, man I wanted, I wanted
to feel like the all-, I wanted to be the all American kid from New York,
and I walked in, sat down, I was hung down, brung down, hung up, and all
kinds o' mean nasty ugly things. And I waked in and sat down and they gave
me a piece of paper, said, "Kid, see the phsychiatrist, room 604."

And I went up there, I said, "Shrink, I want to kill. I mean, I wanna, I
wanna kill. Kill. I wanna, I wanna see, I wanna see blood and gore and
guts and veins in my teeth. Eat dead burnt bodies. I mean kill, Kill,
KILL, KILL." And I started jumpin up and down yelling, "KILL, KILL," and
he started jumpin up and down with me and we was both jumping up and down
yelling, "KILL, KILL." And the sargent came over, pinned a medal on me,
sent me down the hall, said, "You're our boy."

Didn't feel too good about it.

Proceeded on down the hall gettin more injections, inspections,
detections, neglections and all kinds of stuff that they was doin' to me
at the thing there, and I was there for two hours, three hours, four
hours, I was there for a long time going through all kinds of mean nasty
ugly things and I was just having a tough time there, and they was
inspecting, injecting every single part of me, and they was leaving no
part untouched. Proceeded through, and when I finally came to the see the
last man, I walked in, walked in sat down after a whole big thing there,
and I walked up and said, "What do you want?" He said, "Kid, we only got
one question. Have you ever been arrested?"

And I proceeded to tell him the story of the Alice's Restaurant Massacre,
with full orchestration and five part harmony and stuff like that and all
the phenome... - and he stopped me right there and said, "Kid, did you ever
go to court?"

And I proceeded to tell him the story of the twenty seven eight-by-ten
colour glossy pictures with the circles and arrows and the paragraph on
the back of each one, and he stopped me right there and said, "Kid, I want
you to go and sit down on that bench that says Group W .... NOW kid!!"

And I, I walked over to the, to the bench there, and there is, Group W's
where they put you if you may not be moral enough to join the army after
committing your special crime, and there was all kinds of mean nasty ugly
looking people on the bench there. Mother rapers. Father stabbers. Father
rapers! Father rapers sitting right there on the bench next to me! And
they was mean and nasty and ugly and horrible crime-type guys sitting on the
bench next to me. And the meanest, ugliest, nastiest one, the meanest
father raper of them all, was coming over to me and he was mean 'n' ugly
'n' nasty 'n' horrible and all kind of things and he sat down next to me
and said, "Kid, whad'ya get?" I said, "I didn't get nothing, I had to pay
$50 and pick up the garbage." He said, "What were you arrested for, kid?"
And I said, "Littering." And they all moved away from me on the bench
there, and the hairy eyeball and all kinds of mean nasty things, till I
said, "And creating a nuisance." And they all came back, shook my hand,
and we had a great time on the bench, talkin about crime, mother stabbing,
father ******, all kinds of groovy things that we was talking about on the
bench. And everything was fine, we was smoking cigarettes and all kinds of
things, until the Sargeant came over, had some paper in his hand, held it
up and said.

"Kids, this-piece-of-paper's-got-47-words-37-sentences-58-words-we-wanna-
know-details-of-the-crime-time-of-the-crime-and-any-other-kind-of-thing-
you-gotta-say-pertaining-to-and-about-the-crime-I-want-to-know-arresting-
officer's-name-and-any-other-kind-of-thing-you-gotta-say", and talked for
forty-five minutes and nobody understood a word that he said, but we had
fun filling out the forms and playing with the pencils on the bench there,
and I filled out the massacre with the four part harmony, and wrote it
down there, just like it was, and everything was fine and I put down the
pencil, and I turned over the piece of paper, and there, there on the
other side, in the middle of the other side, away from everything else on
the other side, in parentheses, capital letters, quotated, read the
following words:

("KID, HAVE YOU REHABILITATED YOURSELF?")

I went over to the sargent, said, "Sargeant, you got a lot a damn gall to
ask me if I've rehabilitated myself, I mean, I mean, I mean that just, I'm
sittin' here on the bench, I mean I'm sittin here on the Group W bench
'cause you want to know if I'm moral enough join the army, burn women,
kids, houses and villages after bein' a litterbug." He looked at me and
said, "Kid, we don't like your kind, and we're gonna send you fingerprints
off to Washington."

And friends, somewhere in Washington enshrined in some little folder, is a
study in black and white of my fingerprints. And the only reason I'm
singing you this song now is cause you may know somebody in a similar
situation, or you may be in a similar situation, and if your in a
situation like that there's only one thing you can do and that's walk into
the shrink wherever you are ,just walk in say "Shrink, You can get
anything you want, at Alice's restaurant.". And walk out. You know, if
one person, just one person does it they may think he's really sick and
they won't take him. And if two people, two people do it, in harmony,
they may think they're both faggots and they won't take either of them.
And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people walking in
singin a bar of Alice's Restaurant and walking out. They may think it's an
organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day,I said
fifty people a day walking in singin a bar of Alice's Restaurant and
walking out. And friends they may thinks it's a movement.

And that's what it is , the Alice's Restaurant Anti-Massacre Movement, and
all you got to do to join is sing it the next time it come's around on the
guitar.

With feeling. So we'll wait for it to come around on the guitar, here and
sing it when it does. Here it comes.

You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant
You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant
Walk right in it's around the back
Just a half a mile from the railroad track
You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant

That was horrible. If you want to end war and stuff you got to sing loud.
I've been singing this song now for twenty five minutes. I could sing it
for another twenty five minutes. I'm not proud... or tired.

So we'll wait till it comes around again, and this time with four part
harmony and feeling.

We're just waitin' for it to come around is what we're doing.

All right now.

You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant
Excepting Alice
You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant
Walk right in it's around the back
Just a half a mile from the railroad track
You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant

Da da da da da da da dum
At Alice's Restaurant

anywhobies i have loads of fave sonsg and lyrics so this will be a thread i post alot in lols!

Perfect - Simple Plan (this song is one i completely relate to it is exactly like my relationship with my dad)

Hey Dad look at me
Think back and talk to me
Did I grow up according
To plan?
Do you think I'm wasting
My time doing things I
Wanna do?
But it hurts when you
Disapprove all along


And now I try hard to make it
I just want to make you proud
I'm never gonna be good
Enough for you
I can't pretend that
I'm alright
And you can't change me


'Cuz we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
I'm sorry
I can't be Perfect
Now it's just too late
And we can't go back
I'm sorry
I can't be Perfect


I try not to think
About the pain I feel inside
Did you know you used to be
My hero?
All the days
You spent with me
Now seem so far away
And it feels like you don?t
Care anymore


And now I try hard to make it
I just want to make you proud
I'm never gonna be good
Enough for you
I can't stand another fight
And nothing's alright


'Cuz we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
I'm sorry
I can't be Perfect
Now it's just too late
And we can't go back
I'm sorry
I can't be Perfect


Nothing's gonna change
The things that you said
Nothing's gonna make this
Right again
Please don't turn your back
I can't believe it's hard
Just to talk to you
But you don't understand


'Cuz we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
I'm sorry
I can't be Perfect
Now it's just too late
And we can?t go back
I'm sorry
I can't be Perfect


'Cuz we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
I'm sorry
I can't be Perfect
Now it's just too late
And we can?t go back
I'm sorry
I can't be Perfect

first time i heard this song i cried for 2 horus it just hit everything i was feeling at the time and means alot to me

your hope - the calling

When your hope is lost
When your hope is fading...

What would you do if you had
Just one little pill in your hand
That changed around all you could be
That helped you forget what you're seen
If all you ever wanted, was to let go...
(There are so many things that we just don't know about)

When your hope is lost and you can't take it
Now you're come too far, to let them break it

You think it would be all right
To live someone else's life
Trust what you already have
Cause once you fall in, you can't turn back
If all you ever wanted, was to let go...
(I think we all knows what it's like to feel alone)

When your hope is lost and you can't take it
Now you're come too far, to let them break it

You've got to throw those thoughts away
Before you make a big mistake
You've lost control, been thrown off track
But now it's time, to take it back, take it back
You have to want to
You have to want to...

(There are so many things)

When your hope is lost and you can't take it
Now you're come too far, to let them break it

When your hope is lost
When your hope is fading
When your hope is lost...

Nice Thread :yeah:

Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

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

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

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

Dreams - Fleetwood Mac

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

Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Say...Women...they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean...you'll know

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

Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Say...Women...they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean...you'll know

I luv SG as well and my fave song is... Truly madly deeply

I'll be your dream, I'll be your wish I'll be your fantasy.
I'll be your hope, I'll be your love be everything that you need.
I love you more with every breath truly madly deeply do..
I will be strong I will be faithful 'cause I'm counting on a new beginning.
A reason for living. A deeper meaning. Yeah..

I wanna stand with you on a mountain,
I wanna bathe with you in the sea.
I wanna lay like this forever,
Until the sky falls down on me...

And when the stars are shining brightly in the velvet sky,
I'll make a wish send it to heaven then make you want to cry..
The tears of joy for all the pleasure and the certainty.
That we're surrounded by the comfort and protection of..
The highest powers. In lonely hours. The tears devour you..

I wanna stand with you on a mountain,
I wanna bathe with you in the sea.
I wanna lay like this forever,
Until the sky falls down on me...

Oh can you see it baby?
You don't have to close your eyes 'cause it's standing right before you.
All that you need will surely come...

I'll be your dream I'll be your wish I'll be your fantasy.
I'll be your hope, I'll be your love, be everything that you need.
I'll love you more with every breath truly madly deeply do...

I wanna stand with you on a mountain,
I wanna bathe with you in the sea.
I wanna lay like this forever,
Until the sky falls down on me...

I wanna stand with you on a mountain,
I wanna bathe with you in the sea.
I wanna live like this forever,
Until the sky falls down on me...

oh yeah... oh yeah

I laso luv Aerosmith, Dont wanna miss a thing!

I could stay awake just to hear you breathing,
Watch you smile while you are sleeping,
While you're far away and dreaming,
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender,
I could stay lost in this moment forever,
When every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure,

Don't wanna close my eyes,
I don't wanna fall asleep,
Cause I'd miss you baby,
And I don't wanna miss a thing,
Cause even when I dream of you,
The sweetest dream would never do,
I'd still miss you babe,
And I don't wanna miss a thing.

Lying close to you,
feeling your heart beating,
And I'm wondering what you're dreaming,
Wondering if it's me you're seeing,
And then I kiss your eyes,
And thank God we're together,
I just wanna stay with you in this moment forever,
Forever and ever.

And I don't wanna miss one smile,
I don't wanna miss one kiss,
I just wanna be with you,
Right here with you, just like this,
I just wanna hold you close,
And feel your heart so close to mine,
And just stay here in this moment,
For all the rest of time (Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah YEAH!!)

I am a huge En Vogue fan too, so I will post lots of EV lyrics here as well ;)

En Vogue - Sad But True

It's a winter day, five years too late
I'm feelin' cold inside
Holdin' on to what I don't know
No more reasons, no more wise
Just my life, and my love I worked so hard to keep

Oooh, sad but true
Sad but true
It will be a very different world without him
So I just can't up and let him go
What would my children say?

Mad, just a little sad
Just a little had, just a little
Had just a little time for me
Not good you see
I need just a little more
Just a little life, just a little
Had just a little fun you see
There's more to me

When you're creepin' out at night
Always tried to cry myself to sleep
Sad but true, it won't work no more
I must tell him so
Goodbye is so hard to say

So sad but true
So sad but oh so true

A world of make-believe
It's a place I've lived
Joyous all the time
Never knew my world could cave in
Fall in right before my eyes, I was blind
I would only see the signs I wanted to see

Ooh ooh ooh, sad but true
Sad but true
And it will
You must take the time to deal with it
Before you fall too deep in it
Can't find your way back home, ooh

Can't change his ways
Won't change my ways
If things stay the same
No one wins the game
I deserve better
He needs it better
I'm not so happy, he can't be happy
Oh oh

And I feel it in my soul
Our love has come to an end
Sad but true, it's not love no more
I must tell him so
Goodbye is so hard to say

So sad but true
So sad but oh so true

i've sooo many...but im posting this one:

Walking After You
Foo Fighters

Tonight I'm tangled in my
Blanket of clouds
Dreaming aloud
Things just won't do without you
Matter of fact
I'm on your back

If you walk out on me
I'm walking after you

If you'd accept surrender
I'll give up some more
Weren't you adored?
I cannot be without you
Matter of fact
I'm on your back

If you walk out on me
I'm walking after you

Another heart is cracked
In two
I'm on your back

My 2 favourite songs will both fit in the one post:

1. Good Vibrations by the Beach Boys has been my favourite song for a LONG time:

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears
And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair
I hear the sound of a gentle word
On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air

I'm pickin' up good vibrations
She's giving me excitations
I'm pickin' up good vibrations
(Oom bop bop good vibrations)
She's giving me excitations
(Oom bop bop excitations)
Good good good good vibrations
(Oom bop bop)
She's giving me excitations
(Oom bop bop excitations)
Good good good good vibrations
(Oom bop bop)
She's giving me excitations
(Oom bop bop excitations)

Close my eyes
She's somehow closer now
Softly smile, I know she must be kind
When I look in her eyes
She goes with me to a blossom world

I'm pickin' up good vibrations
She's giving me excitations
I'm pickin' up good vibrations
(Oom bop bop good vibrations)
She's giving me excitations
(Oom bop bop excitations)
Good good good good vibrations
(Oom bop bop)
She's giving me excitations
(Oom bop bop excitations)
Good good good good vibrations
(Oom bop bop)
She's giving me excitations
(Oom bop bop excitations)

(Ahhhhhhh)
(Ah my my what elation)
I don't know where but she sends me there
(Ah my my what a sensation)
(Ah my my what elations)
(Ah my my what)

Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations
A happenin' with her
Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations
A happenin' with her
Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations
A happenin'

Ahhhhhhhh
Good good good good vibrations
(Oom bop bop)
(I'm pickin' up good vibrations)
She's giving me excitations
(Oom bop bop)
(Excitations)
Good good good good vibrations
(Oom bop bop)
She's na na . . .

Na na na na na
Na na na
Na na na na na
Na na na
Do do do do do
Do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do

My other favourite song is The Savage by my favourite band The Shadows (some people may know them as Cliff Richard's backing band in the 60s - but they were big in their own right)..... anyway, the song is instrumental so here are the lyrics:

..and this one too.. ;)

Landslide
Smashing Pumpkins

I took my love, I took it down
I climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
’til the landslide brought it down

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing cause i’ve
Built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m getting older, too

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing cause i’ve
Built my life around you
Time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m getting older, too
I get older, too

I took my love and took it down
I climbed a mountain, I turned around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
The landslide brought it down
The landslide brought it down

A Voice Within- Christina Aguilera

Young girl, don't cry
I'll be right here when your world starts to fall
Young girl, it's all right
Your tears will dry, you'll soon be free to fly

When you're safe inside your room you tend to dream
Of a place where nothing's harder than it seems
No one ever wants or bothers to explain
Of the heartache life can bring and what it means

When there's no one else
Look inside yourself
Like your oldest friend
Just trust the voice within
Then you'll find the strength
That will guide your way
If you will learn to begin
To trust the voice within

Young girl, don't hide
You'll never change if you just run away
Young girl, just hold tight
And soon you're gonna see your brighter day

Now in a world where innocence is quickly claimed
It's so hard to stand your ground when you're so afraid
No one reaches out a hand for you to hold
When you're lost outside look inside to your soul
When there's no one else
Look inside yourself
Like your oldest friend
Just trust the voice within
Then you'll find the strength
That will guide your way
If you will learn to begin
To trust the voice within Yeah...
Life is a journey
It can take you anywhere you choose to go
As long as you're learning
You'll find all you'll ever need to know

You'll make it
You'll make it
Just don't go forsaking yourself
No one can stop you
You know that I'm talking to you

When there's no one else
Look inside yourself
Like your oldest friend
Just trust the voice within
Then you'll find the strength
That will guide your way
If you will learn to begin
To trust the voice within Young girl don't cry
I'll be right here when your world starts to fall

Santa Monica - Savage Garden

In Santa Monica, in the wintertime,
The lazy streets so undemanding
I walk into the crowd
In Santa Monica, you get your coffee from
The coolest places on the promenade
Where people dress just so
Beauty so unavoidable, everywhere you turn
It's there.
I sit and wonder what am I doing here?

But on the telephone line I am anyone
I am anything I want to be.
I could be a super model or Norman Mailer
And you wouldn't know the difference
Or would you?

In Santa Monica, all the people got modern names
Like Jake or Mandy
And modern bodies too
In Santa Monica, on the boulevard,
You'll have to dodge those in-line skaters
Or they'll knock you down
I never felt so lonely,
Never felt so out of place
I never wanted something more than this

But on the telephone line I am anyone
I am anything I want to be
I could be a super model or Norman Mailer
And you wouldn't know the difference
On the telephone line, I am any height
I am any age I want to be
I could be a caped crusader, or space invader
And you wouldn't know the difference
Or would you?

Or would you?

But on the telephone line I am anyone
I am anything I want to be
I could be a super model or Norman Mailer
And you wouldn't know the difference
On the telephone line, I am any height
I am any age I want to be

And you wouldn't know the difference

Affirmation - Savage Garden

I believe the sun should never set upon an argument
I believe we place our happiness in other people's hands
I believe that junk food tastes so good because it's bad for you
I believe your parents did the best job they knew how to do
I believe that beauty magazines promote low self esteem
I believe I'm loved when I'm completely by myself alone

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe you can't control or choose your sexuality
I believe that trust is more important than monogamy
I believe that your most attractive features are your heart and soul
I believe that family is worth more than money or gold
I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair
I believe the only ones who disagree are millionaires

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe forgiveness is the key to your unhappiness
I believe that wedded bliss negates the need to be undressed
I believe that God does not endorse TV evangelists
I believe in love surviving death into eternity

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

En Vogue - Love U Crazay

It's just like this,
I knew it from the first time i kissed your lips
I can't resist... the passion was so strong.
As I looked into your eyes, I became a little weak and i was mesmerized.
I lost all track of time.

(chorus)
Must be somethin' to it, (background: Must be somethin wrong with me)
I don't want to lose it,
I don't want to lose it,
Must be somethin' to it.
Love u crazay. (I'm crazay)(Crazay)
I got crazay love for you!
I adore you, always watchin' you, losin' sleep over you.
Yes I truly do, love u crazay! (I'm crazay)(Crazay)
I got crazay love for you!

It must be fate
I never would've met you if I wasn't late
Oh, my mistake for hitting your new car
Somethin 'bout you took me in, somethin 'bout that dark brown skin
Somethin 'bout that sexy smile, somethin 'bout you drove me wild
And now I'm crazy, they're gonna put me away

(chorus)

As I can't believe this world without the sun
I can't believe my heart without your love
Those who don't understand, I haven't had anyone to win my heart
Like you've done to me this far

[Kamil's Rap]
So what part of the game is this, I'm s'posed to be real smooth
Instead I'm stumblin' over words and s***, You got me nervous
Shakin', makin' my hands sweaty
Nobody's ever had this effect on sweet Sparzetti
I find myself doin' things I'd never do
Lately I've been b****in' on my friends and dissin other men for you
All I think about is you and I don't like you one bit, (what?)
Somehow you crashed into my life and now I'm crazay love sick

(Chorus)

I'm in love with you
And my love is true
No one else will do
I got crazay love for you
(Repeat)

So in love with so in love with so in love with you!
And you know it and you know it and you know it's true!

Morcheeba - Rome Wasn't Built In A Day



You and me we're meant to be
Walking free in harmony
One fine day we' ll fly away
Don' t you know that Rome wasn' t built in a day
In this day and age it's so easy to stress
'Cause people are strange and you can never second guess
In order to love child we got to be strong
I'm caught in the crossfire why can't we get along
'Cause you and me we're meant to be
Walking free in harmony
One fine day we' ll fly away
Don' t you know that Rome wasn' t built in a day
I'm having a daydream, we're getting somewhere
I'm kissing your lips and running fingers through your hair
I'm as nervous as you 'bout making it right
Though we know we were wrong, we can' t give up the fight
Oh no
'Cause you and me we're meant to be
Walking free in harmony
One fine day we' ll run away
Don' t you know that Rome wasn' t built in a day
You and me we're meant to be
Walking free in harmony
One fine day we' ll fly away
Don' t you know that Rome wasn' t built in a day
You and me (you and me) we're meant to be (meant to be)
Walking free (walking free) in harmony (in harmony)
One fine day (one fine day) we' ll ran away (we gonna ran away, we gonna ran away)
Don' t you know that Rome wasn' t built in a day
You and me (you and me) we're meant to be (meant to be)
Walking free (walking free) in harmony (in harmony)
One fine day (one fine day) we' ll fly away (we gonna ran away, we gonna ran away)
Don' t you know that Rome wasn' t built in a day

Savage Garden - Chained to you



we were standing all alone you were leaning in to speak to me
acting like a mover shaker dancing to madonna then you kissed me
and i think about it all the time
sweet temptation rush all over me
and i think about it all the time
passion desire so intense i can't take anymore because

i feel the magic all around you
it's bringing me to my knees
like a wannabe
i've got to be chained to you

and when you looked into my eyes felt a sudden sense of urgency
fascination casts a spell and you became more than just a mystery
and i think about you all the time
is this fate is it my destiny
that i think about you all the time
i no longer pretend to have my hand on the wheel because

i feel the magic all around you
it's bringing me to my knees
like a wannabe
i've got to be chained to you
i feel the magic building around you

i feel the magic all around you
it's bringing me to my knees
like a wannabe
i've got to be chained to you

and i think about you all the time
and i think about you all the time
yeah i think about it all the time
tell me it's madness i barely know you
we were standing all alone you were leaning in to speak to me
ten steps back you're still a mystery
acting live a mover shaker dancing to madonna then you kissed me
i can't take anymore because

i feel the magic all around you
it's bringing me to my knees
like a wannabe
i've got to be chained to you
i feel the magic building around you

i feel the magic all around you
it's bringing me to my knees
like a wannabe
i've got to be chained to you

tell me it's madness

'N Sync - Thinking of you (I drive myself crazy)



Lying in your arms
So close together
Didn't know just what I had
Now I toss and turn
Cause I'm without you
How I'm missing you so bad
Where was my head?
Where was my heart?
Now I cry alone in the dark
I lie awake
I drive myself crazy
Drive myself crazy
Thinking of you
Made a mistake
When I let you go baby
I drive myself crazy
Wanting you the way that I do (wanting you the way that I do)

I was such a fool
I couldn't see it
Just how good you were to me (Just how good you were to me)

You confessed your love ( You confessed your love)
Undying devotion
I confessed my need to be free
And now I'm left
With all this pain
I've only got myself to blame

I lie awake
I drive myself crazy
Drive myself crazy
Thinking of you
Made a mistake
When I let you go baby
I drive myself crazy
Wanting you the way that I do (wanting you the way that I do)

Why didn't I know it
(How much I loved you baby)
Why couldn't show it
(If I had only told you)
When I had the chance
Oh I had the chance

oohhhhhh....la la la la la la
I drive myself crazy'
ahhh..oh so crazy
lalalalala...oh oh oh oh
I lie awake
I drive myself crazy
Drive myself crazy
Thinking of you
Made a mistake (made a mistake)
Let you go baby
I drive myself crazy
Wanting you the way that I do

I lie awake
I drive myself crazy (I drive myself crazy, crazy, crazy...yeah)
Drive myself crazy
Made a mistake
Let you go baby
I drive myself crazy
Wanting you the way that I do
I drive myself crazy

Jonatan Cerrada - A chaque pas



Il y a des blessures
Qu’on devra oublier
Tellement de ratures
Qu’il faudra effacer

Souffler très fort pour que s’envole de nos cœurs la rancune
Et puis faire tomber les barrières une à une…

A chaque pas que l’on fera
A chaque geste qu’on offrira
Ce sera le début d’un autre demain
Dans chaque mot que l’on dira
Dans ce futur qu’on construira
C’est l’Amour que dessineront nos mains

Il y a des injures
Qu’il faudra pardonner
Des cris contre des murs
Qui lesferont tomber

Déposons les armes à nos pieds, délaissons nos armures
Et que nos conflits ne soient plus que murmure

A chaque pas que l’on fera
A chaque geste qu’on offrira
Ce sera le début d’un autre demain
Dans chaque mot que l’on dira
Dans ce futur qu’on construira
C’est l’Amour que dessineront nos mains

La bataille sera longue
Mais tu sais elle en vaut la peine
L’enfant en nous trouvera le chemin

Il y a des felures
Qui resteront brisées
Des coups un peu durs
A jamais marqués

A chaque pas que l’on fera
A chaque geste qu’on offrira
Se que al final lograras encontrar
La paz y la felicitad
En tu camino hallaras
Todo lo que deseas alcanzar

C’est l’Amour que dessineront nos mains



I really love the lyrics of this song :)

"Eternity"-Robbie Williams

Close your eyes so your don't hear then
They don't need to see you cry
I can't promise I will heal you
But if you want to I will try

I'll sing this somber serenade
The past is done
We've been betrayed
It's true
Someone said the truth will out
I believe without a doubt, in you

You were there for summer dreaming
And you gave me what I need
And I hope you find your freedom
For eternity...
For eternity

Yesterday when you were walking
We talked about your mum and dad
What they did that made you happy
What they did that made you sad
We sat and watched the sun go down
Picked a star before we lost the moon
Youth is wasted on the young
Before you know it's come and gone to soon

You were there for summer dreaming
And you gave me what I need
And I hope you find your freedom
For eternity...
For eternity

For eternity
I'll sing this somber serenade
The past is done
We've been betrayed
It's true
Youth is wasted on the young
Before you know it's come and gone to soon

You were there for summer dreaming
And you are a friend indeed
And I hope you find your freedom
For eternity

You were there for summer dreaming
And you are a friend indeed
And I know you'll find your freedom
Eventually
For eternity
For eternity

Someday We'll Know - New Radicals

90 miles outside chicago
Can't stop driving
I don't know why
So many questions
I need an answer
Two years later you're still on my mind
Whatever happened to Amelia Earhart
Who holds the stars up in the sky?
Is true love just once in a lifetime?
Did the captain of the titanic cry?

Someday we'll know
If love can move a mountain
Someday we'll know
Why the sky is blue
Someday we'll know
Why I was meant for you

Does anybody know the way to Atlantis
Or what the wind says when she cries
I'm speeding by the place that I met you
For the 97th time..... tonight

Someday we'll know
Why Samson loved Delilah
One day I'll go
Dancing on the moon
Someday you'll know
That I was the one for you
(yeah yeah yeah yeah)

I bought a ticket to the end of the rainbow
I watched the stars crash in the sea
If I could ask God just one question
Why aren't you here with me....tonight

Artists: Alias, Deep Puddle Dynamics, Dose One, Slug, Sole
Album: The Taste of Rain..Why Kneel?
by Deep Puddle Dynamics
Added By: Mental Stamina
added on July 13, 2004
HipHop Lyrics:
sole:
okay everyone, put away your boyish desires, your bouyant sighs,
your rolling eyes, your lust for rolling rock.
your lust for getting rocks off with other's follies,
all your desires for couch and tv, pick up a book, pick up a shovel.
put down the gun, throw the fist.
throw intelligent words in this game of conversation.
try a new arrangement, dollars and sensibility,
intelligence and ability, eloquence and nobility, delicatessens.
treat your girl like you treat your tv.
how you should use your headphones as positive role models.
try staying home, stop trying to prove, stop trying to be,
stop trying to do, just be, prove, do, and exist.
go to college, respect your mother, look out for your little sister,
respect no one except yourself.
treat all others how you expect in return,
exercise intellect, if you lack it, pretend.
call few people enemies and call fewer people friends.
don’t do it for the wealth, do it all for the love.
love everything you do, and do nothing half-heartedly.
be what you speak, man, never speak on what you be.
even if you’re lost, front like you got a plan.
it ain't that hard, but stand if you’re ready to be a man.

dose one:
i come to you with one heart broken in two,
lashed hands, and many flaw, a man.
in return i ask only an ego that's unbiased listen,
to what i speak of, offers freedom from mind,
freedom from a focused impulse, free.
and not at all the spangled, yankee-doodle,
union, musket, and compass sense of liberty
which our forefathers in holy-wood have fed and sold us for scores.
i’m eluding, and rightfully so, to salvage clear-headedness
of composed fated state of human being no grand inquisitor myself.
i pour forth a pensive, frown upon and frustrated, humble, however furious.
this reason for being here, this well you’ve found is phenomenal alone.
in the immortal words of oliver wendell holmes,
"a mind that is stretched to a new idea never returns to its original dimension."
simplistically, topsoil is no seashell full of bitter ocean body, but it can be.
changing for and from, triumph to mystery, every somehow has a place,
where you dare not set foot and can’t see a thing.
so weave those silver threads into soul-leveled bonds,
and be unbounded no longer,
manipulative, let it go. go, let the wandering take it all in.
generate, make you yours, my masters, my pupils, my equals,
drop, decorate, i implore you, just think.

alias:
let me address you with two conflicting topics at this moment,
two paths, i’ve roamed it. intention to hit home with this discussion.
and make you pawn to strengthen your words,
not talking racial connotation, but loosely tied with bees and birds.
also loosely tied with opposites, the depths of negativity in your soul.
let it take control and you can see deeper into the hole,
of self-destruction, it's obstruction of the opposite feeling.
my fellow men and women, it's love and hate with which we are dealing.
i’ve experienced both words, let’s ponder my theory and thought,
on these two and the correlation that each other has brought.
i’ve sought the answer and i’ve found hate is stronger than love,
i love to hate you, i hate to love you. hate always ends up above.
it’s much easier to say you hate than to say you love a person,
but easier to say you love material or love currency when it’s dispersin'.
i’ve realized long ago that neither word is a delicate topic so
hence the circle on my finger, i.d.o., on that day was my flow.
and although i see many problems in my fellow man,
hatred of others is absolutely not my master plan.
my other spiritual half has taught me much about my true feelings.
i was slipping into mental remission but was brought into the healing process.
i consider myself blessed when i think,
floating up above the majority makes others look like they stink.
hating, you give up nothing, love, you give it up all,
so i smirk at all of ya'll while you await my downfall.

slug:
condescending,
the lake dove into when you finally acknowledge that i’m not pretending.
follow the language, the direction, the dialect,
the cadence, the enunciation, emphasis, pretentiousness.
assumptions, makin an ass of you,
point a in the air you share with me,
point b, now draw a straight line connecting us.
wait, wait man, who’s not paying attention?
see, class here’s the problem,
ya'll all need to stop resting and collectin' dust.
my stance resembles anger but no your perception’s crooked,
now be some good little bastards, turn your textbooks to page seven.
where it reads that god got drunk, drove heaven into a tree,
now there’s no reasons left for you to continue to breathe.
haha, just joking, only trying to see who’s listenin'.
now heads up, time to test the potential of your faults.
and the results will stay confidential,
for as long as you face the front of your self-esteem,
lose focus, get broken at the seams.
let’s open up the discussion for comments to complement
your circumcised mind state while i write on your anxieties.
trying to speak to the class and justify the act
of pointing my finger at your head and asking you "what the fuck is that?!"
thank you, thank you.

ae wowww

Under The Bridge - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Sometimes I feel like I don't have a partner
Sometimes I feel like my only friend
Is the city I live in, the city of angels
Lonely as I am, together we cry

I drive on her streets 'cause she's my companion
I walk through her hills 'cause she knows who I am
She sees my good deeds and she kisses me windy
I never worry, now that is a lie.

Well, I don't ever want to feel like I did that day
Take me to the place I love, take me all the way
I don't ever want to feel like I did that day
Take me to the place I love, take me all the way, yeah, yeah,yeah

It's hard to believe that there's nobody out there
It's hard to believe that I'm all alone
At least I have her love, the city she loves me
Lonely as I am, together we cry

Well, I don't ever want to feel like I did that day
Take me to the place I love, take me all the way
Well, I don't ever want to feel like I did that day
Take me to the place I love, take me all the way,yeah, yeah, yeah
oh no, no, no, yeah, yeah
love me, I say, yeah, yeah

(is where I drew some blood)
is where I drew some blood

(under the bridge downtown)
(i could not get enough)

(under the bridge downtown)
(forgot about my love)
forgot about my love

(under the bridge downtown)
(i gave my live away)
i gave my life away yeah, yeah, yeah

Seven Nation Army - White Stripes

I'm gonna fight em off
A seven nation army couldn't hold me back
They're gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back
And I'm talking to myself at night
Because I cant forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarette
And the message coming from my eyes
Says leave it alone
Don't want to hear about it
Every single ones got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of hell
And if I catch it coming back my way
Im gonna serve it to you
And that aint what you want to hear,
But thats what I'll do
And the feeling coming from my bones
Says find a home
I'm going to Wichita
Far from this opera for evermore
I'm gonna work the straw
Make the sweat drip out of every pore
And I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding
Right before the lord
All the words are gonna bleed from me and I will think
No more
And the stains coming from my blood
Tell me go back home

Keane - Bedshaped

Many's the time I ran with you down
The rainy roads of your old town
Many the lives we lived in each day
And buried altogether
Don't laugh at me
Don't look away

You'll follow me back
With the sun in your eyes
And on your own
Bedshaped
And legs of stone
You'll knock on my door
And up we'll go
In white light
I don't think so
But what do I know?
What do I know?
I know!

I know you think I'm holding you down
And I've fallen by the wayside now
And I don't understand the same things as you
But I do

Don't laugh at me
Don't look away

You'll follow me back
With the sun in your eyes
And on your own
Bedshaped
And legs of stone
You'll knock on my door
And up we'll go
In white light
I don't think so
But what do I know?
What do I know?
I know!

And up we'll go
In white light
I don't think so
But what do I know?
What do I know?
I know!

Times Like These - Jack Johnson

In times like these
in times like those
what will be will be
and so it goes
and it always goes on and on
and on and on it goes

And theres always been laughing, crying, birth, and dying
boys and girls with hearts that take and give and break
and heal and grow and recreate and raise and nurture
but then hurt from time to times like these
and times like those
what will be will be
and so it goes

And there will always be stop and go and fast and slow
action, reaction, sticks and stones and broken bones
those for peace and those for war
and god bless these ones not those ones
but these ones made times like these
and times like those
what will be will be
and so it goes
and it always goes on and on
and on and on it goes

But somehow I know it won't be the same
somehow I know it'll never be the same

11 am - Incubus

7 a.m.
The garbage truck beaps as it backs up
And I start my day thinking about what I've thrown away
Could I push rewind?
The credits traverse, signifying the end
But I missed the best part
Could we please go back to start?
Forgive my indecision

Then again, you're always first when no one's on your side
But then again, a day will come when I want off that ride

11 a.m.
By now you would think that I would be up
But my bedsheets shade the heat of choices I've made
And what did I find?
I never thought I could want someone so much
Cause now you're not here and I'm knee deep in that old fear
Forgive my indecision
I am only a man

Then again, you're always first when no one's on your side
But then again, a day will come when I want off that ride

12 p.m. and my dusty telephone rings
Heavy head up from my pillow, who could it be?
I hope it's you

Brother Down - Sam Roberts

One life to live but we're doing it wrong
You see, got my brother down cause it's nothing to me
Everyone saying that it's wrong to cheat
But there's no other way to get my life on easy street
Someone else telling you what you're living for
Been knocking you down, now you're looking for more
The only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they're bringing you war
Rich man cryin' cause his money's time
And poor man's smilin' cause he knows he ain't blind
There's a man over there says he's tougher than me
But I got eyes that can see through fantasy

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by

Take it all back cause it don't mean nothing
If you give it away and you're looking for something back
Wake up every morning when there's nothing there
No reason to die but no reason to care
Someone else telling you what you're living for
Been knocking you down now you're looking for more
The only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they're bringing you war
One life to live but we're doing it wrong
You see, got my brother down cause it's nothing to me
Rich man cryin' cause his money's time
And poor man's smilin' cause he knows he ain't blind

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by

My Happiness - Powderfinger

I see your shadow on the street now
I hear you push through the rusty gate
Click of your heels on the concrete
Waiting for a knock coming way too late
It seems an age since I've seen you
Countdown as the weeks trickle into days

So you come in and put your bags down
I know there's something in the air
How can I do this to you right now
If you're over there when I need you here

My happiness is slowly creeping back
Now you're at home
If it ever starts sinking in
It must be when you pack up and go

It seems an age since I've seen you
Countdown as the weeks trickle into days
I hope that time hasn't changed you
All I really want is for you to stay

I know I know I know what is inside

Most people that know me know that I'm an incurable romantic :) These two songs mean an awful lot to me because of their lyrics - again the people who know me well will know exactly why :)

MISSING YOU - JOHN WAITE

Everytime I think of you, I always catch my breath
And I'm still standing here, and you're miles away
And I'm wonderin' why you left
And there's a storm that's raging through my frozen heart tonight

I hear your name in certain circles, and it always makes me smile
I spend my time thinkin' about you, and it's almost driving me wild
And there's a heart that's breaking down this long distance line tonight

I ain't missing you at all since you've been gone away
I ain't missing you, no matter what I might say

There's a message in the wire, and I'm sending you this signal tonight
You don't know how desperate I've become
And it looks like I'm losing this fight
In your world I have no meaning, though I'm trying hard to understand
And it's my heart that's breaking down this long distance line tonight

Chorus:
I ain't missing you at all since you've been gone away
I ain't missing you, no matter what my friends say

And there's a message that I'm sending out, like a telegraph to your soul
And if I can't bridge this distance, stop this heartbreak overload

(chorus)

I ain't missing you, I ain't missing you, I can lie to myself

And there's a storm that's raging through my frozen heart tonight

(chorus)

Ain't missing you, I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you, I can lie to myself
Ain't missing you, I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you, I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you, I ain't missing you, ain't missing you, oh no
No matter what my friends might say, I ain't missing you...


RIGHT HERE WAITING FOR YOU - RICHARD MARX

Oceans apart day after day
And I slowly go insane
I hear your voice on the line
But it doesn't stop the pain
If I see you next to never
How can we say forever
Wherever you go
Whatever you do

I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I took for granted, all the times
That I thought would last somehow
I hear the laughter, I taste the tears
But I can't get near you now
Oh, can't you see it baby
You've got me goin' crazy
Wherever you go
Whatever you do

I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I wonder how we can survive
This romance
But in the end if I'm with you
I'll take the chance

Oh can't you see it baby
You've got me goin' crazy
Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you
Waiting for you

James Brown - It's a man's world

This is a man's world
This is a man's world
But it wouldn't be nothing
Nothing without a woman or a girl

You see man made the car
To take us over the road
Man made the train
To carry the heavy load
Man made the electric light
To take as out of the dark
Man made the boat for the water
Like Noah made the ark

This is a man's man's man's world
But it wouldn't be nothing
Nothing without a woman or a girl

Man thinks about the little betty baby girl
And the baby boys
Man makes them happy
Cause man made them toys
And after man made everyhing
Everything he can
You know that man makes money
To buy from other men

This is a man's world
But it wouldn't be nothing
Nothing not one little thing
Without a woman or a girl
He's lost in the wilderness
He's lost in bitterness

Bob Marley - War

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 color of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the color 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
Last lasting dream of 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, uttely destroyed
Well, everywhere is war, me say war

War in 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

Diamonds On The Inside - Ben Harper

I knew a girl
Her name was truth
She was a horrible liar.

She couldn't spend one day alone
But she couldn't be satisfied.

When you have everything,
You have everything to lose.
She made herself
A bed of nails
And she's plannin' on puttin' it to use.

Cos she had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
Diamonds

A candle throws it's light into the darkness
In a nasty world, so shines the good deed
Make sure the fortune, that you seek
Is the fortune you need.

So tell me why, the first to ask, is the last to give, everytime
What you say and do not mean
Follow too close behind

Cos she had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds on the inside
Diamonds

Like a soldier standing long under fire
Any change comes as a relief.
Let the giver's name remain unspoken
For she is just a generous thief.

But she had diamonds on the inside
Cos she had diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds
Oh diamonds
She had diamonds
She wore diamonds
Diamonds

That reminds me of another song... ;)

Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes by Paul Simon

(a-wa) O kodwa u zo-nge li-sa namhlange
(a-wa a-wa) Si-bona kwenze ka kanjani
(a-wa a-wa) Amanto mbazane ayeza
She's a rich girl
She don't try to hide it
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
He's a poor boy
Empty as a pocket
Empty as a pocket with nothing to lose
Sing Ta na na
Ta na na na
She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
People say she's crazy
She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
Well that's one way to lose these
Walking blues
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes


She was physically forgotten
Then she slipped into my pocket
With my car keys
She said you've taken me for granted
Because I please you
Wearing these diamonds
And I could say Oo oo oo
As if everybody knows
What I'm talking about
As if everybody would know
Exactly what I was talking about
Talking about diamonds on the soles of her shoes
She makes the sign of a teaspoon
He makes the sign of a wave
The poor boy changes clothes
And puts on after-shave
To compensate for his ordinary shoes
And she said honey take me dancing
But they ended up by sleeping
In a doorway
By the bodegas and the lights on
Upper Broadway
Wearing diamonds on the soles of their shoes
And I could say Oo oo oo
As if everybody here would know
What I was talking about
I mean everybody here would know exactly
What I was talking about
Talking about diamonds
People say I'm crazy
I got diamonds on the soles of my shoes
Well that's one way to lose
These walking blues
Diamonds on the soles of our shoes

This is my all-time favourite song, with great lyrics:

En Vogue - Free your mind


I wear tight clothing and high heel shoes
That doesn't make me a prostitute
I like rap music, wear hip hop clothes
That doesn't mean that I'm sellin' dope

Oh my please forgive me for having straight hair
It doesn't mean there's another blood in my heirs
I might date another race or color
Doesn't mean I don't like my strong black brothers

Free your mind and the rest will follow
(Why oh why must it be this way)
Be color blind don't be so shallow
(Before you can read me you gotta learn how to see me)

So I'm a sista
Buy things with cash
That really doesn't mean that all my credit's bad

So why dispute me and waste my time
Because you think that the price is too high for me
I can't look without being watched
You rang my buy before I made up my mind

Oh now attitude why even bother
I can't change your mind, you can't change my color

Free your mind and the rest will follow
(Why oh why must it be this way)
Be color blind, don't be so shallow
(Before you can read me, you gotta learn to see me

Here's another one of mine:-

DRY LAND - STEVE HOGARTH/MARILLION

In all the time that I've known you
You've been so edgy and nervous
I never wanted to own you
I was aware of the danger
Of making a bid for your favours
You're such a natural stranger
I made excuses and ran

You're an island
But I can't leave you all out at sea
You're so violent with your silence
You're an island
I can't sleep
Won't you speak to me
I'm on dry land
Won't you help me please

In all the time that I've known you
There has been something between us
I don't think it's my imagination

I felt like I couldn't touch you
But I had the feeling you'd love to
Tell me the truth if you could do
I made excuses and ran

You're an island
But I can't leave you all out at sea
You're so violent with your silence
You're an island I can't sleep
Won't you speak to me
I'm on dry land
Won't you help me please

Moon On Your Pajamas - Paul Weller :hearts:

Was that a shooting star i saw
It's rare for me to make a wish at all
Because i feel that i can only hope
These dangerous time, we are barely afloat

And i hope the world will heal itself
And our worn out souls along with it
So that you will get the chance to say
That you have seen a better day

You've got the moon on your pyjamas
And the stars in your eyes
Sweet child you're a dream in disguise
Angels on silver strings hang from above
Let love and laughter shine wherever you go

Through your new eyes i've come to see
How beautiful my life can be
And i'll keep this wish this time i think
And blow it in with a kiss upon your head

And i hope the world will heal itself
And our worn out souls along with it
So that you will get the chance to see
A summer's blue sky behind green trees

You've got the moon on your pyjamas
And the stars in your eyes
Sweet child you're a dream in disguise
Angels on silver strings hang from above
Let love and laughter shine wherever you go

One - U2

Is it getting better
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now
You got someone to blame?
You say
One love, one life
When it's one need
In the night
One love
We get to share it
It leaves you, baby
If you don't care for it
Did I disappoint you
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Well, it's too late
Tonight
To drag your past out
Into the light
We're one
But we're not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other
One
Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the day?
Have you come to play Jesus
To the lepers in your head?
Did I ask too much
More than a lot?
You gave me nothing now
It's all I got
We're one
But we're not the same
We will
We hurt each other
Then we do it again
You say
Love is a temple
Love, the higher law
Love is a temple
Love, the higher law
You as me to enter
And then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt
One love
One blood
One life you got
To do what you should
One life
With each other
Sisters, brothers
One life
But we're not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other
One ... one

Great songs here so far!

Here's another all time favourite of mine:

Manic street Preachers - If you tolerate this (your children will be next)

The future teaches you to be alone
The present to be afraid and cold
So if I can shoot rabbits
Then I can shoot fascists

Bullets for your brain today
But we'll forget it all again
Monuments put from pen to paper
Turns me into a gutless wonder

And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
Will be next
Will be next
Will be next

Gravity keeps my head down
Or is it maybe shame
At being so young and being so vain

Holes in your head today
But I'm a pacifist
I've walked La Ramblas
But not with real intent

And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
Will be next
Will be next
Will be next
Will be next

And on the street tonight an old man plays
With newspaper cuttings of his glory days

And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
Will be next
Will be next
Will be next

@ the moment my favorite song is "Bedshaped" by Keane:

Many's the time I ran with you down
The rainy roads of our old town
Many the lives we lived in each day
And buried altogether
Don't laugh at me
Don't look away

You'll follow me back
With the sun in your eyes
And on your own
Bedshaped
And legs of stone
You'll knock on my door
And up we'll go
In white light
I don't think so
But what do I know?
What do I know?
I know!

I know you think I'm holding you down
And I've fallen by the wayside now
And I don't understand the same things as you
But I do

Don't laugh at me
Don't look away

You'll follow me back
With the sun in your eyes
And on your own
Bedshaped
And legs of stone
You'll knock on my door
And up we'll go
In white light
I don't think so
But what do I know?
What do I know?

And up we'll go

But what do I know?
What do I know?

but my all-time fave is BitterSweet Symphony by The Verve


'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Try to make ends meet
You're a slave to money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
where all the veins meet yeah,

No change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
But I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

Well I never pray
But tonight I'm on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now
But the airways are clean and there's nobody singing to me now

No change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no
I can't change
I can't change

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Try to make ends meet
Try to find some money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
where all the things meet yeah

You know I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

I can't change my mold
no, no, no, no, no,
I can't change
Can't change my body,
no, no, no

I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
Been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down

here's another all-time favourite of mine:

Lauryn Hill - Ex-Factor

It could all be so simple
But you rather make it hard
Lovin' you is like a battle
And we both end up with scars
Tell me who I have to be
To get some reciprocity
See no one loves you more than me
And no one ever will

Is this just a silly game
That forces you to act this way
Forces you to scream my name
Then pretend that you can't stay
Tell me who I have to be
To get some reciprocity
See no one loves you more than me
And no one ever will

No matter how I think we grow
You always seem to let me know
It ain't workin', it ain't workin'
And when I try to walk away
You'd hurt yourself to make me stay
This is crazy, this is crazy

I keep letting you back in
How can I explain myself
As painful as this thing has been
I just can't be with no one else
See I know what we've got to do
You let go and I let go too
'Cause no one's hurt me more than you
And no one ever will

No matter how I think we grow
You always seem to let me know
It ain't workin', it ain't workin'
And when I try to walk away
You'd hurt yourself to make me stay
This is crazy, this is crazy

Care for me, care for me
You said you'd care for me

There for me, there for me
Said you'd be there for me

Cry for me, cry for me
You said you'd die for me

Give to me, give to me
Why won't you live for me

I heard It Through The Grapevine - Marvin Gaye
(Norman Whitfield / Barrett Strong)

Ooh, I bet you're wond'rin' how I knew
'bout your plans to make me blue
With some other guy you knew before
Between the two of us guys you know I love you more
It took me by surprise I must say
When I found out yesterday
Dontcha know that I

Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh I heard it through the grapevine
Oh I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah
(Heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be my baby, ooh, ooh, ooh)

I know a man ain't supposed to cry
But these tears I can't hold inside
Losin' you would end my life you see
cause you mean that much to me
You could have told me yourself
That you love someone else
Instead I

Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah
(Heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be my baby, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

People say believe half of what you see
Son, and none of what you hear
But I can't help bein' confused
If it's true please tell me dear
Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy you loved before?
Dontcha know I

Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Baby I heard it through the grapevine
Ooh I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah
(Heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be my baby, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Marvin Gaye - What's Going On

Mother, mother
There's too many of you cryin'
Brother, brother, brother
There's far too many of you dyin'
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today

Father, father
We don't need to escalate
You see war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
We've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today

Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me so you can see
What's going on
What's going on
What's going on
What's going on

Mother, mother
Everybody thinks we're wrong
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Simply 'cause our hair is long
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today

Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
C'mon talk to me
So you can see
What's going on
Yeah, what's going on
Tell me what's going on
I'll tell you what's going on

Me too :D Great lyrics, everyone! :yeah: :kiss:

Mercy Mercy Me - Marvin Gaye

Ah, mercy, mercy me,
Ah, things ain't what they used to be, no, no.
Where did all the blue skies go?
Poison is the wind that blows from the north and south andeast.

Mercy, mercy me,
Ah, things ain't what they used to be, no, no.
Oil wasted on the ocean and upon
our seas fish full of mercury,

Oh, mercy, mercy me.
Ah, things ain't what they used to be, no, no, no.
Radiation underground and in the sky;
animals and birds who live near by are dying.

Oh, mercy, mercy me.
Ah, things ain't what they used to be.
What about this over crowded land?
How much more abuse from man can she stand?

Eric Clapton - Tears in Heaven

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven
I must be strong and carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven
I'll find my way through night and day
'Cause I know I just can't stay
Here in heaven

Time can bring you down
Time can bend your knee
Time can break your heart
Have you begging please
Begging please

Beyond the door
There's peace I'm sure
And I know
There'll be no more
Tears in heaven

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven
I must be strong and carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven

'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven

Wow, some great stuff here already, some classics and some songs I'd never expect. (to put it diplomatically)

Lamb: I cry

One day I met a precious soul
Whose words had touched my heart
His poetry resounded so
It tore my soul apart
But when I tried my thoughts to speak
Emotion made my mind so weak
And time stood still for years and years
I bathed him in my tears

I cried, I cried
Tears of joy tears of pain
I cried, I cried
Tears of love again and again

Some people turn to pills and things
To help them through the day
To take them up or down or just
To ease the blues away
But me I really want to feel
The ups and downs of life so real
Happy or sad emotions reign
My tears flow just the same

I cried, I cried
Tears of joy tears of pain
I cried, I cried
Tears of love again and again

Gonna burn so completely I leave no trace
Though so many out there would laugh in my face
For wearing emotion so close to the skin
Condemn me they might if to love's such a sin

I cried, I cried
Tears of joy tears of pain
I cried, I cried
Tears of love again and again

Suzanne Vega: Gypsy

You come from far away
With pictures in your eyes
Of coffeeshops and morning streets
In the blue and silent sunrise
But night is the cathedral
Where we recognized the sign
We strangers know each other now
As part of the whole design

Oh, hold me like a baby
That will not fall asleep
Curl me up inside you
And let me hear you through the heat

You are the jester of this courtyard
With a smile like a girl’s
Distracted by the women
With the dimples and the curls
By the pretty and the mischievous
By the timid and the blessed
By the blowing skirts of ladies
Who promise to gather you to their breast

Oh, hold me like a baby...

You have hands of raining water
And that earring in your ear
The wisdom on your face
Denies the number of your years
With the fingers of the potter
And the laughing tale of the fool
The arranger of disorder
With your strange and simple rules
Yes now I’ve met me another spinner
Of strange and gauzy threads
With a long and slender body
And a bump upon the head

Oh, hold me like a baby...

With a long and slender body
And the sweetest softest hands
And we’ll blow away forever soon
And go on to different lands
And please do not ever look for me
But with me you will stay
And you will hear yourself in song
Blowing by one day

Oh, hold me like a baby...

Alicia Keys - Fallin'

I keep on fallin'
In and out of love
With you
Sometimes I love ya
Sometimes you make me blue
Sometimes I feel good
At times I feel used
Lovin' you darlin' makes me so confused

I keep on fallin'
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you

Oh, oh, I never felt this way
How do you give me so much pleasure
And cause me so much pain
Just when I think
I've taken more than would a fool
I start fallin' back in love with you

I keep on fallin'
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you

Oh baby
I, I, I, I'm fallin'
I, I, I, I'm fallin'
Fall

I keep on fallin'
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you

Have You Ever Seen The Rain - Creedence Clearwater Revival

Someone told me long ago
There's a calm before the storm
I know
It's been comin' for some time
When it's over, so they say
It'll rain a sunny day
I know
Shinin' down like water

I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain?
I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain
Comin' down on a sunny day?

Yesterday, and days before
Sun is cold and rain is hard I know
Been that way for all my time
'Til forever, on it goes
Through the circle, fast and slow
I know
It can't stop,
I wonder

I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain?
I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain
Comin' down on a sunny day?
Yeah!

I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain?
I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain
Comin' down on a sunny day?

Live Forever - Oasis

Maybe I don't really wanna know
How your garden grows
Cos I just want to fly
Lately, did you ever feel the pain
Of the morning rain
As it soaks you to the bone

Maybe I just want to fly
I want to live I don't want to die
Maybe I just want to breath
Maybe I just don't believe
Maybe you're the same as me
We see things they'll never see
You and I are gonna live forever

Maybe I don't really wanna know
How your garden grows
Cos I just want to fly
Lately, did you ever feel the pain
Of the morning rain
As it soaks you to the bone

Maybe I will never be
All the things that I want to be
But now is not the time to cry
Now's the time to find out why
I think you're the same as me
We see things they'll never see
You and I are gonna live forever
We're gonna live forever
Gonna live forever
Live forever
Forever

The ideal time to reveal the song that inspired my nickname on MTF:

Björk: Pagan poetry

Pedalling through the dark currents
I find an accurate copy, a blueprint
of the pleasure in me

[choir] Swirling black lilies totally ripe

A secret code carved, a secret code carved

[choir] Swirling black lilies totally ripe

He offers a handshake, crooked five fingers
they form a pattern yet to be matched

[choir] Swirling black lilies totally ripe

On the surface simplicity
but the darkest pit in me
is pagan poetry
[choir] Swirling black lilies totally ripe

Morse - coded - signals
they pulsate, they wake me up
from my deep sleep,
from my hibernation

On the surface simplicity
but the darkest pit in me
is pagan poetry

I love him, I love him, I love him

This time : I'm gonna keep me to myself
This time : I'm gonna keep my all to myself

[choir whispers] She loves him, she loves him, she loves him

But he makes me want to hand myself over

[choir whispers] She loves him

Yes Mrs B, Suzanne Vega is a very gifted writer. I have to admit I love more of her lyrics than her songs, but still there are many pieces she has written where everything comes together wonderfully and pure beauty emerges.

indeed. this is one of my faves from her:

"Language"

If language were liquid
It would be rushing in
Instead here we are
In a silence more eloquent
Than any word could ever be

These words are too solid
They don't move fast enough
To catch the blur in the brain
That flies by and is gone
Gone
Gone
Gone

I'd like to meet you
In a timeless, placeless place
Somewhere out of context
And beyond all consequences

Let's go back to the building
(Words are too solid)
On Little West Twelfth
It is not far away
(They don't move fast enough)
And the river is there
And the sun and the spaces
Are all laying low
(To catch the blur in the brain)
And we'll sit in the silence
(That flies by and is)
That comes rushing in and is
Gone (Gone)

I won't use words again
They don't mean what I meant
They don't say what I said
They're just the crust of the meaning
With realms underneath
Never touched
Never stirred
Never even moved through

If language were liquid
It would be rushing in
Instead here we are
In a silence more eloquent
Than any word could ever be

And is gone
Gone
Gone
And is gone

Alicia Keys - Troubles

Dear Lord again, take it away
This pain in my heart that just bothers me day by day
And at night it stalks me like the shadows on my wall
Oh my goodness

Feel like the world is closin' on me
Feel like my dreams will never come to me
I keep on slippin' deeper into myself
And I'm scared, so scared

If you're troubled you just gotta let it go
If you're troubled you just gotta let it go
All your hustles ain't for nothin', you just gotta take it slow
When you need me baby all you do is let me know

Why does it feel that my mind is constantly tryin'
To pull me down?
I can't seem to get away
Continuous mistakes I know I've made before
How long will I feel so out of place?

If you're troubled you just gotta let it go
If you're troubled you just gotta let it go
All your hustles ain't for nothin', you just gotta take it slow
When you need me baby all you do is let me know

The intense duet between Björk and Thom Yorke from Radiohead, from the viewpoint of a girl losing her sight:

I'VE SEEN IT ALL

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

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

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

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

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

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

and another Alicia Keys favourite of mine (you see I'm a huge fan... ;))

Alicia Keys - Butterflyz

Lately when I look into your eyes I realize
You're the only one I need in my life
Baby I just don't know how to describe
How lovely you make me feel inside

You give me butterflyz
Got me flyin' so high in the sky
I can't control the butterflyz

It seems like the likely thing
From the start you told me
I would be your queen
But never had I imagined such a feeling
Joy is what you bring
I want to give you everything

You give me butterflyz
Got me flyin' so high in the sky
I can't control the butterflyz

You and I are destiny
I know that you were made for me

You give me butterflyz
Got me flyin' so high in the sky
I can't control the butterflyz

I'm interested to hear people's favourite song of Nick Cave. Anyone?

Meanwhile Inertia Creeps from triphop's finest, off their fabulous album Mezzanine which merges beauty in music, voice and lyric in such a way they are unseparable.
The album is a whole for me, but I chose this song 'cause capturing sexual tension in popular music is often tried and often failed. This cross section between hiphop, rock and Eastern sounds sums up what Massive Attack are the masters in: creating a delicate balance of sound in every way to serve the goal of communicating moods and feelings.

Massive Attack: Inertia creeps

3d:
Recollect me darling, raise me to your lips
Two undernourished egos, four rotating hips
Hold on to me tightly, I'm a sliding scale
Can't endure then you can't inhale
Clearly
Out of body experience - interferes
And dreams of flying - I fit nearly
Surrounds me - though I get lonely
Slowly

Moving up slowly
Inertia keeps
She's moving up slowly
Slowly
Moving up slowly
Inertia creeps
Moving up slowly
She comes
Moving up slowly
She comes
Moving up slowly
Inertia creeps
Moving up slowly
She comes
Moving up slowly
Moving up slowly

In my home no chrome as clear as
See me now with my nearest dearest
Been there when I'm over careering
Room shifting is endearing
Between us is our kitchen
Would you found my irritant's itching
Been here before
Been here forever

Moving up slowly
Inertia keeps
Moving up slowly
Inertia creeps
Moving up slowly
Inertia keeps
Moving up slowly
She comes
Moving up slowly
Moving up slowly
She comes moving up slowly
Inertia creeps moving up slowly


She comes
I make no sound in my eidertown
Awake I lie in the morning's blue
Room is still my antenna in you
Nylon burns the bedspread with two
Gravity's zero see me stall
I bounce off walls lose my footing and fall
It can be sweet though incomplete though
And the frames will freeze
See me on all four's
It's been a long time

She comes
She comes
I want to x you
She comes
I want to x you
She comes

I caught your radio waves
I caught your radio waves
Will you take a string
Say you string me along
Say you string me along
Say inertia creeps
Inertia creeps and she comes
Say she comes
Say she comes
Say she comes
Say she comes

This song reflects my thoughts of last weeks TMC. It played in my head too many times.

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Who'll stop the rain

Long as I remember the rain been comin’ down.
Clouds of myst’ry pourin’ confusion on the ground.
Good men through the ages, tryin’ to find the sun;
And I wonder, still I wonder, who’ll stop the rain.

I went down virginia, seekin’ 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 who’ll stop the rain.

Heard the singers playin’, how we cheered for more.
The crowd had rushed together, tryin’ to keep warm.
Still the rain kept pourin’, fallin’ on my ears.
And I wonder, still I wonder who’ll stop the rain.

*shivers down my spine*

Tori Amos: Me and a gun

5am friday morning thursday night far from sleep
I'm still up and driving can't go home obviously
So I'll just change direction cause they'll soon know where I live
And I wanna live
Got a full tank and some chips

It was me and a gun and a man on my back
And I sang "holy holy" as he buttoned down his pants

You can laugh
Its kind of funny
Things you think
Times like these
Like I haven't seen Barbados so I must get out of this

Yes I wore a slinky red thing
Does that mean I should spread for you, your friends
Your father, Mr Ed

It was me and a gun and a man on my back
But I haven't seen Barbados so I must get out of this

And I know what this means
Me and Jesus a few years back used to hang
And he said "it's your choice babe just remember
I don't think you'll be back in 3 days time so you choose well"
Tell me whats right
Is it my right to be on my stomach of Fred's Seville

It was me and a gun and a man on my back
But I haven't seen Barbados so I must get out of this

and do you know Carolina
Where the biscuits are soft and sweet
These things go through your head when there's a man on your back
And you're pushed flat on your stomach it's not a classic caddilac

It was me and a gun and a man on my back
But I haven't seen Barbados so I must get out of this
I haven't seen Barbados so I must get out of this

"Life For Rent"-Dido

I haven't ever really found a place that I call home
I never stick around quite long enough to make it
I apologize that once again I'm not in love
But it's not as if I mind
that your heart ain't exactly breaking

It's just a thought, only a thought

But if my life is for rent and I don't learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

I've always thought
that I would love to live by the sea
To travel the world alone
and live more simply
I have no idea what's happened to that dream
Cos there's really nothing left here to stop me

It's just a thought, only a thought

But if my life is for rent and I don't learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

If my life is for rent and I don't learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

While my heart is a shield and I won't let it down
While I am so afraid to fail so I won't even try
Well how can I say I'm alive

If my life is for rent and I don't learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

If my life is for rent and I don't learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine
Cos nothing I have is truly mine
Cos nothing I have is truly mine
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

"Precious Illusions"-Alanis Morissette

You'll rescue me right?
In the exact same way they never did..
I'll be happy right?
When your healing powers kick in

You'll complete me right?
Then my life can finally begin
I'll be worthy right?
Only when you realize the gem I am?

But this won't work now the way it once did
And I won't keep it up even though I would love to
Once I know who I'm not then I'll know who I am
But I know I won't keep on playing the victim

These precious illusions in my head did not let me down
When I was defenseless
And parting with them is like parting with invisible best friends

This ring will help me yet as will you knight in shining armor
This pill will help me yet as will these boys gone through like water

But this won't work as well as the way it once did
Cuz I want to decide between survival and bliss
And though I know who I'm not I still don't know who I am
But I know I won't keep on playing the victim

These precious illusions in my head did not let me down when I was a kid
And parting with them is like parting with a childhood best friend

I've spent so long firmly looking outside me
I've spent so much time living in survival mode

This won't work now the way it once did
Cuz I want to deside between servival and bliss
Now I know who I'm not
I don't I still don't know who I am
But I know I won't keep on playing the victom

These precious illusions in my head did not let me down
When I was defenseless
And parting with them is like parting with invisible best friends


These precious illusions in my head did not let me down
When I was a kid
And parting with them is like parting with childhood best friends

"How Bizarre" - OMC

Brother Pele's in the back, sweet Zina's in the front
Cruisin' down the freeway in the hot, hot sun
Suddenly red-blue lights flash us from behind
Loud voice booming, "Please step out onto the line"
Pele preaches words of comfort, Zina just hides her eyes
Policeman taps his shades, "Is that a Chevy '69?"

How bizarre
How bizarre, how bizarre

Destination unknown, as we pull in for some gas
Freshly pasted poster reveals a smile from the past
Elephants and acrobats, lions snakes monkey
Pele speaks "righteous," Sister Zina says "funky"

How bizarre
How bizarre, how bizarre

Ooh, baby (Ooh, baby)
It's making me crazy (It's making me crazy)
Everytime I look around
Everytime I look around (Everytime I look around)
Everytime I look around
It's in my face

Ring master steps out and says "the elephants left town"
People jump and jive, but the clowns have stuck around
TV news and camera, there's choppers in the sky
Marines, police, reporters ask where, for and why
Pele yells, "We're outta here," Zina says, "Right on"
We're making moves and starting grooves before they knew we were gone
Jumped into the Chevy and headed for big lights
Wanna know the rest? Hey, buy the rights...

How bizarre
How bizarre, how bizarre

Ooh, baby (Ooh, baby)
It's making me crazy (It's making me crazy)
Everytime I look around
Everytime I look around (Everytime I look around)
Everytime I look around
It's in my face


I really like this song!

Kung Fu Fighting - Carl Douglas

Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightning
But they fought with expert timing

They were funky China men from funky Chinatown
They were chopping them up and they were chopping them down
It's an ancient Chineese art and everybody knew their part
From a feint into a slip, and kicking from the hip

Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightning
But they fought with expert timing

There was funky Billy Chin and little Sammy Chung
He said here comes the big boss, lets get it on
We took a bow and made a stand, started swinging with the hand
The sudden motion made me skip now we're into a brand knew trip

Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightning
But they did it with expert timing

(repeat)..make sure you have expert timing
Kung-fu fighting, had to be fast as lightning

( This song is great as well!! ) :bounce:

I love the new Christina Aguilera song feat. Nelly. :hearts:

One of my fave songs...

SHANIA TWAIN

"From This Moment On"

(I do swear that I'll aways be there.
I'd give anything and everything and I will always care.
Through weakness and strength, happiness and sorrow,
for better or worse, I will love you with
every beat of my heart.)
From this moment life has begun
From this moment you are the one
Right beside you is where I belong
From this moment on

From this moment I have been blessed
I live only for your happiness
And for your love I'd give my last breath
From this moment on

I give my hand to you with all my heart
Can't wait to live my life with you, can't wait to start
You and I will never be apart
My dreams came true because of you

From this moment as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
There is nothing I wouldn't give
From this moment on

You're the reason I believe in love
And you're the answer to my prayers from up above
All we need is just the two of us
My dreams came true because of you

From this moment as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
From this moment
I will love you as long as I live
From this moment on

"Bent"

And if I fall along the way
Pick me up and dust me off
And if I get too tired to make it
Be my breath so I can walk

And if I need some other love then
Give me more than I can stand
And when my smile gets old and faded
Wait around I'll smile again

Shouldn't be so complicated
Just hold me and then
Just hold me again

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together

Keep breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent

And if I couldn't sleep could you sleep
Could you paint me better off
Could you sympathize with my needs
I know you think I need a lot

I started out clean but I'm jaded
Just phoning it in
Just breaking the skin

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together

Keep breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent

Start bending me
It's never enough
I feel all your pieces

Start bending me
Keep bending me until
I'm completely broken in

Shouldn't be so complicated
Just touch me and then
Just touch me again

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together

Keep breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent
and without understanding

Hell, I'll go there again
Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together

You're breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent

Matchbox 20 are one of my favorite bands and the lead singer is a hottie.

"Damaged"

I know I'm kind of strange
to you sometimes
don't always say
what's on my mind
you know that I've been hurt by some guy
but I dont wanna mess up this time

and I really really really care
and I really really really want you
and I think I'm kinda scared
cause I don't want to lose you
if you're really really really there
then maybe you can hang through
I hope you understand
It's nothing to you

my heart's at a low
I'm so much to manage
I think you should know
that I've been damaged
I'm falling in love
there's one disadvantage
I think you should know
that I've been damaged

I might look through you're stuff
for what I don't want to find
or I might just set you up
to see if you're all mine
I'm a little paranoid
from what I've been through
you don't know what you've got yourself into

and I really really really care
and I really really really want you
and I think im kinda scared
cause I don't want to lose you
if you're really really really there
then maybe you can hang through
I hope you understand
It's nothing to you

my heart's at a low
I'm so much to manage
I think you should know
that I've been damaged
i'm falling in love

I think you should know
that I've been damaged

Destineys Child - Say my name

Say my name
Say my name
If nobody's around you say baby I love you
If you ain't runnin game

Say my name
Say my name
You acting kind of shady
Ain;t callin me baby
Why the sudden change

Say my name
Say my name
If no one is around you say baby I love you
If you ain't runnin game
Say my name
Say my name
You actin kind of shady
Ain't callin me baby
Betta say my name

Any other day I would call you would say
Baby hows your day But today it ain't the same
Every other word is a huh, yeah okay
Could it be that you are at the crib wit another lady
If you took there first of all let me say
I am not the one to sit around and be played
So prove yourself to me and the other girl you playin
Why don't you say the things you said to me yesterday

I know you sayin I'm assuming things
(Somethings goin down thats the way it seems)
Shouldn't be a reason why your acting strange
(No ones holding you back from me)
Cause I know how you usually do
(When you sayin everything to me times 2)
Why can't you just tell the truth
(If someones there tell me who)

What is up wit this tell the truthwho you wit
How would you like it if I came over wit my clique
Don't try to change it now see you got to bounce
When 2 seconds ago you said you just got in the house
It's so hard to believe you were home by yourself
When I just heard the voice the voice of someone else
Just this question why do you feel you got to lie
You caught in your game you cannot even say my name

yay yay yay yay yay yeay yay yay yay yayayay oooh oooh oh

Electrical Storm - U2

The sea it swells like a sore head and the night it is aching
Two lovers lie with no sheets on their bed
And the day it is breaking

On rainy days we'd go swimming out
On rainy days swimming in the sound
On rainy days we'd go swimming out

You're in my mind all of the time
I know that's not enough
If the sky can crack there must be someway back
For love and only love

Electrical Storm
Electrical Storm
Baby don't cry

Car alarm won't let you back to sleep
You're kept awake dreaming someone elses dream
Coffee is cold but it'll get you through
Compromise that's nothing new to you.
Let's see colours that have never been seen
Let's go places no one else has been

You're in my mind all of the time
I know that's not enough
Well if the sky can crack there must be someway back
To love and only love

Electrical storm
Baby don't cry

It's hot as hell, honey in this room
Sure hope the weather will break soon
The air is heavy, heavy as a truck
We need the rain to wash away our bad luck

Well if the sky can crack there must be some way back
To love and only love

Prince/Mariah Carey - The Beautiful Ones

Baby baby baby
What's it gonna be?
Baby baby baby
Is it him or is it me?
Don't make me waste my time
Don't make me lose my mind

Baby baby baby
Can't you stay with me tonight?
Baby baby baby
Come on, don't my kisses please you right?
You were so hard to find
The beautiful ones
They hurt you everytime

Paint a perfect picture
Bring to life a vision in one's mind
They always smash the picture
Always the same, everytime

If I told you baby
That I was in love with you
Oh baby baby baby
If we got married
Would that be cool?
You make me so confused
The beautiful ones
You always seem to lose

Do you want him
Or do you want me?
'Cause I want you

I want you
Babe, I want you
I, I want you
Baby baby baby baby, I
See I may not know where I'm going baby
I may not know, said I may not know
What I need, what I need, what I need, what I need
One thing is for certain baby
I know what I want
And that's to please you babe, please you baby
I'm begging down on my knees
I need you so bad, so bad
I want you, I want you
Why oh why, why oh why, why oh why
Oh baby, baby, baby
I gotta know, I gotta know baby
Gotta know

I need you
I want you
Tell me why
The beautiful ones
They hurt you everytime

Walk On- U2

And love
It's not the easy thing
The only baggage
That you can bring
Not the easy thing
The only baggage you can bring
Is all that you can't leave behind

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
Before the second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Walk on
Walk on
What you got, they can't steal it
No they can't even feel it

Walk on
Walk on
Stay safe tonight

You're packing a suitcase for a place
None of us has been
A place that has to be believed
To be seen

You could have flown away
A singing bird
In an open cage
Who will only fly
Only fly for freedom

Walk on
Walk on
What you got
You can't deny it
Can't sell it or buy it

Walk on
Walk on
Stay safe tonight

And I know it aches
How your heart it breaks
You can only take so much

Walk on
Walk on

Home
Hard to know what it is
If you never had one

Home
I can't say where it is
But I know I'm going

Home
That's where the hurt is

And I know it aches
And your heart it breaks
You can only take so much
Walk on

Leave it behind
You've got to leave it behind

All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break

All that you measure
All that you steal
All this you can leave behind

All that you reason
All that you care

It's only time
And I'll never fill up all my mind (??)

All that you sense
All that you speak
All you dress up
And all that you scheme

All you create
All that you wreck
All that you hate

Lenny Kravitz - Again

I've been searching for you
I've heard a cry within my soul
I never had a yearning quite like this before
Now that you are walking right through my door

All of my life
Where have you been?
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
And if that day comes
I know we could win
I wonder if I'll ever see you again

A sacred gift of heaven
For better worse wherever
And I would never let somebody break you down
Or take your crown, never

All of my life
Where have you been?
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
And if that day comes
I know we could win
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
Once on your crown

I've searched through time, I've always known
That you were here, upon your throne
A lonely queen without her king
I've longed for you, my love forever

All of my life
Where have you been?
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
And if that day comes
I know we could win
I wonder if I'll ever see you again

Angie Stone - Wish I Didn't Miss You

Same old story is back again
She's not a lover she's just a friend
I'm sick and tired for you to blame on me
Now you think it's funny
Now you wanna spend your money
On girls but you forgot when you were down
That I was around

Call my lover, hang up, call again
What in the world is happening
Listen in, but don't yell at me
Isn't it ironic
All you wanna do is smoke chronic
Boy you forgot when you were down
Who was around

I can't eat, I can't sleep anymore
Waiting for love to walk through the door
I wish I didn't miss you anymore

Memories don't live like people do
I'm sick for ever believing you
Wish you'd bring back the man I knew
Was good to me, oh Lord
Every time you say you're coming
Boy you disappoint me, honey
How well you forgot when you were down
That I was around

I can't eat, I can't sleep anymore
Waiting for love to walk through the door
I wish I didn't miss you anymore
I can't eat, I can't sleep anymore
Waiting for love to walk through the door
I wish I didn't miss you anymore

One of these days it's gonna happen to you
Missin' a love like I'm missin' you
One of these days when your dreams come true
That's the one who's gonna do it to you

I can't eat, I can't sleep anymore
Waiting for love to walk through the door
I wish I didn't miss you anymore

"Kindred Spirit"

If you think you're hearing something
And you can't think what it is
If you feel a quiet longing
Lift your heart into the wind
There you'll find my kindred spirit
There you'll meet me as a friend
It is just a kindred feeling
And a song to let you in...

"How Will I Know (Who You Are)"

I don't know how,
or where to start
Here we're standing again
And I see now,
from where we are,
that our road has come to an end
Though we've come this far,
I don't know why,
but I still can't see who you are

I don't want you to cry
Don't want us to say goodbye
But I know that we're falling apart
I don't need your lies
And if you don't sympathise
Tell me, how will I know who you are?

It's too late now,
we've gone this far,
to see what's hidden within
Though we said that we'd never part,
maybe I've been trying too hard

To believe in love
I don't know why,
but I still can't see who you are

I don't want you to cry
Don't want us to say goodbye
But I know that we're falling apart
I don't need your lies
And if you don't sympathise
Tell me, how will I know who you are?

Tell me, how will I know who you are?

Don't worry
I promise
It's for the better
So, I think we should let it go now
And maybe we'll find love again

I don't want you to cry
Don't want us to say goodbye
But I know that we're falling apart
I don't need your lies
And if you don't sympathise
Tell me, how will I know who you are?

I don't want you to cry
Don't want us to say goodbye
But I know that we're falling apart
I don't need your lies
And if you don't sympathise
Tell me, how will I know who you are?

Tell me, how will I know who you are?
How will I Know
Tell me, how will I know who you are?

"If I Ever See Heaven Again"

You're leaving now,
I won't try, try to change your mind now baby
I won't say no words designed to make you stay
You've gotta live your life,
I won't stop you
You've got to do what's right for yourself,
I know
No matter what you do,
I won't forget you
I only know, If I

If I ever see heaven again,
it will be in your eyes, your eyes
If I ever feel heaven again,
it will be in your arms, your arms
It will be, it will be with you

You'll walk away and I pray
I'll pray our roads will cross again someday
Deep in this heart of mine,
I'll still love you
Deep in this soul of mine,
you'll be there I swear
The sweetest times I knew,
were times I held you
I only know, If I,

If I ever see heaven again,
it will be in your eyes, your eyes
If I ever feel heaven again,
it will be in your arms, your arms
It will be, it will be with you

You've gotta live your live,
I won't stop you
You've gotta do what's right
For yourself
I know no matter what you do,
I'll always love you
I only know, if I
If I

If I ever see heaven again,
it will be in your eyes, your eyes
If I ever feel heaven again,
it will be in your arms, your arms

If I ever see heaven again,
it will be in your eyes, your eyes
It will be, it will be with you
It will be with you

"Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now)"


How can I just let you walk away,
just let you leave without a trace
When I stand here taking every breath with you, ohoo
You're the only one who really knew me at all

How can you just walk away from me,
when all I can do is watch you leave
'Cos we've shared the laughter and the pain,
and even shared the tears
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now,
'cos there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me,
just the memory of your face
Take a look at me now,
'cos there's just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against the odds
and that's what I've got to face

I wish I could just make you turn around,
turn around and see me cry
There's so much I need to say to you,
so many reasons why
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now,
'cos there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me,
just the memory of your face
Take a look at me now,
'cos there's just an empty space
But to wait for you, is all I can do
and that's what I've got to face
Take a good look at me now,
'cos I'll still be standing here
And you coming back to me is against all odds
Its the chance I've got to take, oh, oho

Just take a look at me now

Two Simon & Garfunkel favorites of mine (I know, pretty old-fashioned ;)):

El Condor Pasa

I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail
Yes I would
If I could
I surely would, hmm
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail
Yes I would
If I only could
I surely would, hmm

Away, I'd rather sail away
Like a swan that's here and gone
A man gets tied up to the ground
He gives the world its saddest sound
Its saddest sound, hmm

I'd rather be a forest than a street
Yes I would
If I could
I surely would
I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet
Yes I would
If I only could
I surely would


Bridge Over Troubled Water

When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes I'll dry them all
I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out, when you're on the street
When evening falls so hard I will comfort you
I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silvergirl, sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh, if you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

Clocks - Coldplay

The lights go out and I can't be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Have brought me down upon my knees
Oh I beg, I beg and I plead
Singing
Come out of the things unsaid
Shoot an apple off my head
And a trouble that can't be named
A tiger's waiting to be tamed
Singing
You are
You are
Confusion that never stops
The closing walls and the ticking clocks
Gonna come back and take you home
I could not stop, that you now know
Singing come out upon my seas
Cursed missed opportunities
Am I a part of the cure
Or am I part of the disease
Singing
You are, you are
You are, you are
You are, you are
You are, you are
And nothing else compares
And nothing else compares
And nothing else compares
And nothing else compares
You are, you are
Home, home where I wanted to go
Home, home where I wanted to go
Home, home where I wanted to go (You are)
Home, home where I wanted to go (You are)

I Still Haven't Found What I'm looking for - U2

I have climbed the highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you

I have run I have crawled
I have scaled
these city walls
Only to be with you

Chorus:
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like fire
This burning desire

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of the devil
It was warm in the night
It was cold as a stone

Chorus

I believe in the Kingdom Come
Then all the colours will
bleed into one
But yes I'm still running

You broke the bonds and you loosed the chains
You carried the cross
And my shame
You know I believe it

Chorus

Have You Ever Seen The Rain - Creedence Clearwater Revival

Someone told me long ago
There's a calm before the storm
I know
It's been comin' for some time
When it's over, so they say
It'll rain a sunny day
I know
Shinin' down like water

I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain?
I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain
Comin' down on a sunny day?

Yesterday, and days before
Sun is cold and rain is hard I know
Been that way for all my time
'Til forever, on it goes
Through the circle, fast and slow
I know
It can't stop,
I wonder

I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain?
I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain
Comin' down on a sunny day?
Yeah!

I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain?
I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain
Comin' down on a sunny day?

Hello - Evanescence

playground school bell rings again
rain clouds come to play again
has no one told you she's not breathing?
hello i'm your mind giving you someone to talk to
hello

if i smile and don't believe
soon i know i'll wake from this dream
don't try to fix me i'm not broken
hello i'm the lie living for you so you can hide
don't cry

suddenly i know i'm not sleeping
hello i'm still here
all that's left of yesterday

love this song it's so beautiful shocking to think lee wrote it though

Breathe Easy - Blue

Cruel to the eye
I see the way he makes you smile
Cruel to the eye
Watching him hold what used to be mine

Why did I lie
Why did I wander where to fly
Ooh why
Ooh why

And I can't breathe easy
I cant sleep at night
Until your by my side
No I can't breathe easy
I cant dream you had another dream without you lying next to me
There's no way

Crushed me inside
For every word that caused you to cry
Crushed me inside
I wont forget, no I wont baby I
Don't know why
(Don't know why)
I left the one I was looking to find

Ooh why
Ooh why

WHY

I can't breathe easy
I cant sleep at night
Until your by my side
No I can't breathe easy
(Breathe easy)
I cant dream you had another dream without you lying next to me, there's no way
No I can't breathe easy
I cant dream you had another dream without you lying next to me, there's no way

Out of my mind
Nothing makes sense anymore
I want you back in my life
That's all I'm breathing for
Ooh I
Tell me why
Ooh Tell me why
I cant dream you had another dream without you lying next to me, there's no way

no no no no no I can't breathe easy
I cant sleep at night
Until your by my side
Yeah
I Can't breathe easy
No I
I can't dream you had another dream without you lying next to me, there's no way
There's no way

Never heard her version :o Speaking about Bonnie Tyler

Total Eclipse Of The Heart - Bonnie Tyler

Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit lonely
And you're never coming round
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit tired
Of listening to the sound of my tears
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit nervous
That the best all of the years have gone by
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit terrified
And then I see the look in your eyes
Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart
Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart

Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit restless
And I dream of something wild
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit helpless
And I'm lying like a child in your arms
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit angry
And I know I've got to get out and cry
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit terrified
But then I see the look in your eyes
Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart
Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you'll only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
Cause we'll never be wrong together
We can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart
Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

INSTRUMENTAL

Turnaround bright eyes
Turnaround bright eyes

Turnaround, every now and then I know you'll never be the boy
You're always wanted to be
Turnaround, but every now and then I know you'll always be theonly boy
Who wanted me the way that I am
Turnaround, every now and then I know there's no one in theuniverse
As magical and wonderous as you
Turnaround, every now and then I know there's nothing anybetter
And there's nothing that I just wouldn't do
Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart
Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you'll only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
Cause we'll never be wrong together
We can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart
Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

interesting to see how many savage garden lyrics have been posted lols but still fun!

anywhobies my next one! this song makes me cry!

Could It Be Any Harder - The Calling


You left me with goodbye and open arms
A cut so deep I don't deserve
You were always invincible in my eyes
the only thing against us now is time

Could it be any harder to say goodbye and without you,
Could it be any harder to watch you go, to face what's true
If I only had one more day

I lie down and blind myself with laughter
A quick fix of hope is what I'm needing
And now i wish that i could turn back the hours
But i know i just don't have the power

Could it be any harder to say goodbye and without you,
Could it be any harder to watch you go, to face what's true
If I only had one more day

I'd jump at the chance
We'd drink and we'd dance
And I'd listen close to your every word,
As if its your last, I know its your last,
Cause today, oh, you're gone

Could it be any harder to say goodbye and without you,
Could it be any harder to watch you go, to face what's true
If I only had one more day

Like sand on my feet
The smell of sweet perfume
You stick to me forever,baby
and I wish you didn't go,
I wish you didn't go
I wish you didn't go away
To touch you again,
With life in your hands
It couldn't be any harder

Boulevard Of Broken Dreams - Green Day

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

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk a...

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

Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh-Ah
Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah

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

Read between the lines
What's fucked up and everythings all right
Check my vital signs to know I'm still alive
And I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk a...

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

Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh-Ah
Ah-Ah Ah-Ah I walk alone, I walk a...

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

My shadows the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
Till then I walk alone!

as a counterpoint to Éowyn's last contribution: :)

You'll Never Walk Alone
When you walk through a storm
Keep your chin up high
And don't be afraid of the dark.
At he end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark.

Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown.Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone,
You'll never walk alone.

-Rodgers and Hammerstein (from Carousel)

Walk On- U2

And love
It's not the easy thing
The only baggage
That you can bring
Not the easy thing
The only baggage you can bring
Is all that you can't leave behind

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
Before the second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Walk on
Walk on
What you got, they can't steal it
No they can't even feel it

Walk on
Walk on
Stay safe tonight

You're packing a suitcase for a place
None of us has been
A place that has to be believed
To be seen

You could have flown away
A singing bird
In an open cage
Who will only fly
Only fly for freedom

Walk on
Walk on
What you got
You can't deny it
Can't sell it or buy it

Walk on
Walk on
Stay safe tonight

And I know it aches
How your heart it breaks
You can only take so much

Walk on
Walk on

Home
Hard to know what it is
If you never had one

Home
I can't say where it is
But I know I'm going

Home
That's where the hurt is

And I know it aches
And your heart it breaks
You can only take so much
Walk on

Leave it behind
You've got to leave it behind

All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break

All that you measure
All that you steal
All this you can leave behind

All that you reason
All that you care

It's only time
And I'll never fill up all my mind (??)

All that you sense
All that you speak
All you dress up
And all that you scheme

All you create
All that you wreck
All that you hate

I could have posted this one too... Great song! :yeah: But so are almost all U2-tracks... Ask Cris! ;)

But I'll contribute this one... mainly because of the story behind it, about the killing of Rev. Martin Luther King... but besides that it must be the ultimate popsong! Sing along if you like! ;)

U2 - Pride (In the Name of Love)

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
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

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

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

Early morning, April four
A shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
The could not take your pride

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love

And I have to post this one too... Amazing song by an amazing band! :yeah: :worship:

Saybia - Stranded

I took a life for granted
untill it slipped right through my fingers
although forever parted

I feel your prescence more than ever
there's no return from where you went
and it leaves me stranded

It's written in my heart
it's written in my soul now
all the memories torn in me

a constant overload

It's written in the sky
it's written in the stars now
I'm haunted by the things I know

I should've done
all the time we should have had

is gone

Tonight

in me
your light will shine

And with a beautifull sky above
I was reduced to being human
I feel I'm ten feet under
and I long for your embrace
in the absence of your love
I pretend to be alright
but it's written in my heart
it's written in my soul now
all the memories torn in me

a constant overload

It's written in the sky
it's written in the stars now
I'm haunted by the things I know

we should have done
and all the time we should have had

is gone

Tonight
in me
your light will shine
in me now
your living in me
right in here in the bottom of my heart
with a beautiful sky above
I was reduced to being

Human

I'm Only Happy When It Rains - Garbage

I'm only happy when it rains
I'm only happy when it's complicated
And though I know you can't appreciate it
I'm only happy when it rains
You know I love it when the news is bad
Or why it feels so good to feel so sad
I'm only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me

I'm only happy when it rains
I feel good when things are going wrong
I only listen to the sad, sad songs
I'm only happy when it rains
I only smile in the dark
My only comfort is the night gone black
I didn't accidentally tell you that
I'm only happy when it rains
You'll get the message by the time I'm through
When I complain about me and you
I'm only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down (down on misery down)
Pour your misery down on me (down on misery down)
Pour your misery down (down on misery down)
Pour your misery down on me (down on misery down)
Pour your misery down (down on misery down)
Pour your misery down on me (pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down (down on)
You can keep me company
As long as you don't care

I'm only happy when it rains
You'll want to hear about my new obsession
I'm riding high upon a deep depression
I'm only happy when it rains (pour some misery down on me)

And one from my hero David Bowie... also difficult to choose one...

David Bowie - Heroes

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be Heroes, just for one day

And you, you can be mean
And I, I'll drink all the time
'Cause we're lovers, and that is a fact
Yes we're lovers, and that is that

Though nothing, will keep us together
We could steal time,
just for one day
We can be Heroes, for ever and ever
What d'you say?

I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing,
nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, for ever and ever
Oh we can be Heroes,
just for one day

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be Heroes, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day

I, I can remember (I remember)
Standing, by the wall (by the wall)
And the guns shot above our heads
(over our heads)
And we kissed,
as though nothing could fall
(nothing could fall)
And the shame was on the other side
Oh we can beat them, for ever and ever
Then we could be Heroes,
just for one day

We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
Just for one day
We can be Heroes

We're nothing, and nothing will help us
Maybe we're lying,
then you better not stay
But we could be safer,
just for one day

Oh-oh-oh-ohh, oh-oh-oh-ohh,
just for one day

Talking about heroes... Otis Redding!! I'll post his most famous song...

Otis Redding - (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay

Sitting in the morning sun
I'll be sitting when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
And I watch 'em roll away again

[Chorus]
Sitting on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
I'm just sitting on the dock of the bay
Wasting time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the 'Frisco bay
'Cause I had nothin to live for
And look like nothing's gonna come my way

So I'm just...
[Chorus]

Look like nothing's gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same

Sittin here resting my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home

Now, I'm just...
[Chorus]

(Whistle)

Alright alright... one more... Also a random choosen song, because all of their songs are great!

The Police - Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic

Though I've tried before to tell her
Of the feelings I have for her in my heart
Every time that I come near her
I just lose my nerve
As I've done from the start

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met
It's a big enough umbrella
But it's always me that ends up getting wet

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

I resolve to call her up a thousand times a day
And ask her if she'll marry me in some old fashioned way
But my silent fears have gripped me
Long before I reach the phone
Long before my tongue has tripped me
Must I always be alone?

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Every little thing
Every little thing

Soft Cell - Tainted Love

Sometimes I feel I've got to
Run away I've got to
Get away
From the pain that you drive into the heart of me
The love we share
Seems to go nowhere
And I've lost my light
For I toss and turn I can't sleep at night

(chorus)
Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I'll run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Oh...tainted love
Tainted love

Now I know I've got to
Run away I've got to
Get away
You don't really want IT any more from me
To make things right
You need someone to hold you tight
And you'LL think love is to pray
But I'm sorry I don't pray that way

(chorus...)

Don't touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease
I love you though you hurt me so
Now I'm going to pack my things and go
Tainted love, tainted love (x2)
Touch me baby, tainted love (x2)

Maroon 5 - She will be loved


Beauty queen of only eighteen
She had some trouble with herself
He was always there to help her
She always belonged to someone else

I drove for miles and miles
And wound up at your door
I've had you so many times but somehow
I want more

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
She will be loved

Tap on my window knock on my door
I want to make you feel beautiful
I know I tend to get so insecure
It doesn't matter anymore

It's not always rainbows and butterflies
It's compromise that moves us along
My heart is full and my door's always open
You can come anytime you want

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved

I know where you hide
Alone in your car
Know all of the things that make you who you are
I know that goodbye means nothing at all
Comes back and begs me to catch her every time she falls

Tap on my window knock on my door
I want to make you feel beautiful

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved

[in the background]
Please don't try so hard to say goodbye
Please don't try so hard to say goodbye

Yeah
[softly]
I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain

Try so hard to say goodbye

En Vogue - Love won't take me out
This is one of my fav En Vogue songs!


I had a love
And I had pain
Best believe
They come hand in hand
Cause I'm a soldier
For the love brigade
I'm prepared to do battle
With anything

I have control of my life you see
Let's keep it real not to make believe
I won't get caught with my foot in my mouth
And I won't let love take me out
I have the power to do as I please
I take the blows and I do it with ease
I dish it out very hard, there's no doubt
And I won't let love take me out

I had to be
A fool indeed
To let someone
Break me down to my knees
I was wreckless
With my heart you see
There's no rule for that in my world
And yet that's plan

Say bye-bye to the teary brown eyes
And the big sad face with an upside down smile
It's so beneath me, it's so beneath
Say bye-bye to the meaningless days
And the loneliest nights
Just wasting my mind
It's so beneath me, it can't control me

I have control of my life you see
Let's keep it real not to make believe
I won't get caught with my foot in my mouth
And I won't let love take me out
I have the power to do as I please
I take the blows and I do it with ease
I dish it out very hard, there's no doubt

And I won't let love take me out

I have control of my life you see
Let's keep it real not to make believe
I won't get caught with my foot in my mouth
And I won't let love take me out
I have the power to do as I please
I take the blows and I do it with ease
I dish it out very hard, there's no doubt
And I won't let love take me out

Won't take me out, won't take me out
Won't take me out, won't take me out
Won't take me out, won't take me out
Me out, me out, me out

Time to rise
Time to shine
Never again
Cause I decline
To be a victim
Of a broken heart
Cause I found the goddess in me
And now I leave my mark

I have control of my life you see
Let's keep it real not to make believe
I won't get caught with my foot in my mouth
And I won't let love take me out
I have the power to do as I please
I take the blows and I do it with ease
I dish it out very hard, there's no doubt
And I won't let love take me out
(Repeat x3)

I have the power to do as I please
(I won't let it take me out)
I dish it out very hard, there's no doubt
And I won't let love take me out

Savage Garden - Break me, Shake me


I never thought I'd change my opinion again
But you moved me in a way that I've never known
You moved me in a way that I've never known

But straight away you just moved into position again
You abused me in a way that I've never known
You abused me in a way that I've never known

So break me shake me hate me take me over
When the madness stops then you will be alone
Just break me shake me hate me take me over
When the madness stops then you will be alone

So your the kind that deals with the games in the mind
Well you confuse me in a way that I've never known
You confuse me in a way that I've never known

So break me shake me hate me take me over
When the madness stops then you will be alone
Just break me shake me hate me take me over
When the madness stops then you will be alone

She says, "I can help you, but what do you say?"
But it's not for free baby, you'll have to pay
You just keep me contemplating, that your soul is slowly fading

God don't you know that I live with a ton of regret?
'Cause I move you in a way that you've never known
But then I accused you in a way that you've never known
But you hurt me in a way that I've never known...

Break me shake me hate me take me over
When the madness stops then you will be alone
Just break me shake me hate me take me over
When the madness stops then you will be alone

Listen, baby
You'll be, you'll be alone

Break me shake me hate me take me make me
Fake me break me shake me hate me take me
Break me

Lenny Kravitz - Heaven Help

There comes a time to be free of the heart
I'm gonna be ready, ready to start
On a love journey, I got places to go
Made up my mind and I got to let you know

Heaven help the heart that lets me inside
Heaven help the one who comes in my life
Heaven help the fool that walks through my door
'Cause I decided right now
I'm ready for love
Ready for love

A funny feeling's coming over me
Now I'm inspired, and open to being
In a love place, but it's out of my hands
I'm telling you baby that you got to understand

Heaven help the heart that lets me inside
Heaven help the one who comes in my life
Heaven help the fool that walks through my door
'Cause I decided right now
I'm ready for love
Ready for love

I can't see what's out there for me
And I know love offers no guarantee
I'll take a chance and I'm telling you something
Babe I got to let you know

Heaven help the heart that lets me inside
Heaven help the one who comes in my life
Heaven help the fool that walks through my door
'Cause I decided right now
I'm ready for love
Ready for love

Sinead O'Connor - Nothing Compares 2 U
I also like Prince's version :)

It's been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away

Since you've been gone I can do whatever I want
I could see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues

'Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you

It's been so lonely without you here
I'm like a bird without a song
Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
Tell me baby where did I go wrong

I could put my arms around every boy I see
They'd only remind me of you
I went to the doctor and guess what he told me
Guess what he told me
He said 'Girl you better try to have fun no matter what you do'
But he's a fool

'Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you

All the flowers that you planted mother in the backyard
All died when you went away
I know that living with you baby was sometimes hard
But I'm willing to give it another try

Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you

Stevie Wonder/George Michael & Mary J. Blige - As

As around the sun the earth knows she's revolving
And the rosebuds know to bloom in early May
Just as hate knows love's the cure
You can rest your mind assure
That I'll be lovin' you always

As now can't reveal the mystery of tomorrow
But in passing will grow older every day
Just as all that's born is new
You know what I say is true
'Cause I'll be lovin' you always

Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
Until the ocean covers every mountain high
Until dolphins fly and parrots live at sea
Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream

Did you know that true love asks for nothing
Her acceptance is the way we pay
Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
To last through forever and another day

Just as time knew to move on since the beginning
And the seasons know exactly when to change
Just as kindness knows no shame
Know through all your joy and pain
That I'll be loving you always

As today I know I'm living but tomorrow
Could make me the past but that I mustn't fear
For I'll know deep in my mind
The love of me I've left behind
'Cause I'll be loving you always

Until the day is night and night becomes the day
Until the trees and seas just up and fly away
Until the day that 8x8x8 is four
Until the day that it's the day that I'm no more
'Cause I'll be lovin' you always

Until the day the earth starts turning right to left
Until the earth just for the sun denies itself
Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through
Until the day that you are me and I am you
Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky

We all know sometimes lifes hates and troubles
Can make you wish you were born in another time and space
But you can bet you life times that and twice its double
That God knew exactly where he wanted you to be placed
so make sure when you say you're in it but not of it
You're not helping to make this earth a place sometimes called Hell
Change your words into truths and then change that truth into love
And maybe our children's grandchildren
And their great-great grandchildren will tell
I'll be loving you

What a sad sad song.. :sad:

Brian McKnight - One Last Cry

My shattered dreams and broken heart
Are mending on the shelf
I saw you holding hands
Standing close to someone else
Now I sit all alone
Wishing all my feelings was gone
I gave my best to you
Nothing for me to do
But have one last cry

One last cry
Before I leave it all behind
I gotta put you out of my mind this time
Stop living a lie
I guess I'm down to my last cry

Cry.....

I was here
You were there
Guess we never could agree
While the sun shines on you
I need some love to rain on me
Still I sit all alone
Wishing all my feelings was gone
Gotta get over you
Nothing for me to do
But have one last cry

One last cry
Before I leave it all behind
I goota put you out of my mind
For the very last time
Been living a lie
I guess I'm down, I guess I'm down
I guess I'm down...
I guess I'm down...
To my last cry...

Leann Rimes - How Do I Live

How do i,
Get through the night without you?
If i had to live without you,
What kind of life would that be?
Oh, i
I need you in my arms, need you to hold,
You're my world, my heart, my soul,
If you ever leave,
Baby you would take away everything good in my life,

And tell me now

How do i live without you?
I want to know,
How do i breathe without you?
If you ever go,
How do i ever, ever survive?
How do i, how do i, oh how do i live?

Without you,
There'd be no sun in my sky,
There would be no love in my life,
There'd be no world left for me.
And i,
Baby i don't know what i would do,
I'd be lost if i lost you,
If you ever leave,
Baby you would take away everything real in my life,

And tell me now,

How do i live without you?
I want to know,
How do i breathe without you?
If you ever go,
How do i ever, ever survive?
How do i, how do i, oh how do i live?

Please tell me baby,
How do i go on?

If you ever leave,
Baby you would take away everything,
I need you with me,
Baby don't you know that you're everything,
Real in my life?

And tell me now,
How do i live without you,
I want to know,
How do i breathe without you?
If you ever go,
How do i ever, ever survive?
How do i, how do i, oh how do i live?

How do i live without you?

How do i live without you baby?

Five for Fighting - Superman

i can't stand to fly
I'm not that naive
I'm just out to find
The better part of me

I'm more than a bird...i'm more than a plane
More than some pretty face beside a train
It's not easy to be me

Wish that i could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home i'll never see

It may sound absurd...but don't be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed...but won't you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream
It's not easy to be me

Up, up and away...away from me
It's all right...you can all sleep sound tonight
I'm not crazy...or anything...

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naive
Men weren't meant to ride
With clouds between their knees

I'm only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me
Inside of me
Inside me
Yeah, inside me
Inside of me

I'm only a man
In a funny red sheet
I'm only a man
Looking for a dream

I'm only a man
In a funny red sheet
And its not easy

Its not easy to be me

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

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

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

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

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

Half time goes by
Suddenly you're 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

15 there's still time for you
22 I feel her too
33 you're on your way
Every day's a new day...

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

last one.. I don't really like Good Charlotte but the lyrics to this is good :)

Good Charlotte - Hold On

This world
This world is cold
But you don't
You don't have to go
You're feeling sad, you're feeling lonely, and no one seems to care
Your mother's gone and your father hits you
This pain you cannot bear

But we all bleed the same way as you do
And we all have the same things to go through

Hold on if you feel like letting go
Hold on it gets better than you know

Your days
You say they're way too long
And your nights
You can't sleep at all
Hold on
And you're not sure what you're waiting for, but you don't want to know more
And you're not sure what you're looking for, but you don't want to know more

But we all bleed the same way as you do
And we all have the same things to go through

Hold on if you feel like letting go
Hold on it gets better than you know
Don't stop looking, you're one step closer
Don't stop searching, it's not over
Hold on

What are you looking for?
What are you waiting for?
Do you know what you're doing to me?
Go ahead...What are you waiting for?

Hold on if you feel like letting go
Hold on it gets better than you know
Don't stop looking, you're one step closer
Don't stop searching, it's not over
Hold on if you feel like letting go
Hold on it gets better than you know
Hold on

With or Without You - U2

See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you
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 I'm waiting for you

With or without you
With or without out you
I can't live
With or without you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
and you give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tired
My body bruised, she's got me with
Nothing to win
and nothing else to lose

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you

Angel of Harlem - U2

It was a cold and wet December day
When we touched the ground at J.F.K.
The snow was melting on the ground
On B.L.S. I heard the sound
(Of an angel).
New York like a Christmas tree
Tonight, this city belongs to me,
(Angel).

Soul love
Well this love won't let me go.
So long
Angel of Harlem.

Birdland on Fifty-Three
The street sounds like a symphony
We got John Coltrane and a love supreme
Miles and she's got to be an angel.
Lady Day got diamond eyes
She sees the truth behind the lies
(Angel).

Soul love
Well this love won't let me go.
So long
Angel of Harlem.

Blue light on the avenue
God knows they got to you
Empty glass, the lady sings
Eyes swollen like a bee-sting.

Blinded, you lost your way
In the side streets and the alleyways
Like a star exploding in the night
Filling up the city with broad daylight.

Angel in devil's shoes
Salvation in the blues
You never looked like an angel
Angel of Harlem

The 411 feat Ghostface Killah
"On My Knees"


Intro:
I can't fall down on my knees
(i thought you loved me)
(if you really loved me you would have stayed with me)
And apologize to you
(and apologized to me thats all i'm askin)
but that ain't my style
(well let me hear wat you had to say earlier)

Verse 1:
I remember how me met
it was on the train
How could i forget.
you smiled when you looked at me
The soft of your lips that captured me
the whole ride down
we kept our eyes on each other
and then me sat, down together
you gave me your number
said 'give me a call'
I thought i wouldn't call at all...
but here we are
fell in love
like hand to glove
pure bliss from above
now all we seem to do is fuss and fight
we never seem to get it right.
see there's too much fire so much desire
So i took a little pill to take me higher
I'm sorry if i hurt you when i ran astray
I guess i got caught in the day- heyey

Chorus
I can't fall down on my knees
and apologize to you
it not in my style (x2)

Verse 2:
I remember the night
when we were all alone
you were on the sofa
i was on the phone
you over heard me call out my best friends name
thats when you went crazy
started going insane
grabbed the phone from my hand
backed me against the wall
shouting and askin 'who was on the call?'
you would believe me
when i said it was just a friend.
thats when all the madness began

you kept yellin while i stuck to the floor
cryin all these tears, i can't cry them no more
i knew you had a temper
i wish i didn't see it
You wanted me to be faithful
I said i could be it
but that didn't stop you
from puttin your hands on my face
you said you simply had to 'put me into my place'
at the end of every tunnel
theres always a light
and the door will show whose right

Chorus:
I can't fall down on my knees
and apologize to you
cause it not in my style (x2)

hook:
he's got you begging on your knees
crying in you sleep
making you believe him
But you're stronger
then you'll ever know girl
you control your own world
No need to take no more! (x2)

Verse 4: (Rap)
hey yo yo yo
I asked you to calm down
asked you who was on the phone
put the horn down
had a glass of wine
from a 99 yeah a green one
which i bought for you from the cruise you won
I dun approve of those male friends
I told you back then when we first got together
that i don't trust those men
And you did it again
I lost my temper
blinked out and wrecked the house boo
thats all i remember i'm sorry (sorry Sorry)

Chorus:
I can't fall down on my knees
and apologize to you
cause that not in my style(x4)

Here's one of my all-time favs, this one by the Boss!

Bruce Springsteen - The River

I come from down in the valley
where mister when you're young
They bring you up to do like your daddy done
Me and Mary we met in high school
when she was just seventeen
We'd ride out of that valley down to where the fields were green

We'd go down to the river
And into the river we'd dive
Oh down to the river we'd ride

Then I got Mary pregnant
and man that was all she wrote
And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat
We went down to the courthouse
and the judge put it all to rest
No wedding day smiles no walk down the aisle
No flowers no wedding dress

That night we went down to the river
And into the river we'd dive
Oh down to the river we did ride

I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company
But lately there ain't been much work on account of the economy
Now all them things that seemed so important
Well mister they vanished right into the air
Now I just act like I don't remember
Mary acts like she don't care

But I remember us riding in my brother's car
Her body tan and wet down at the reservoir
At night on them banks I'd lie awake
And pull her close just to feel each breath she'd take
Now those memories come back to haunt me
they haunt me like a curse
Is a dream a lie if it don't come true
Or is it something worse
that sends me down to the river
though I know the river is dry
That sends me down to the river tonight
Down to the river
my baby and I
Oh down to the river we ride

Christina Aguilera feat. Alicia Keys - Impossible

It's impossible, it's impossible to love you
If you don't let me know what you're feeling
It's impossible for me to give you what you need
If you're always hiding from me
I don't know what hurts you
I just, I wanna make it right
'Cause boy I'm tired of tryin' to read your mind

'Cause it's impossible
Oh, baby it's impossible
For me to love you this way
It's impossible
Oh, it's impossible
If you're making it this way

Impossible to make it easy
If you're always trying to make it so damn hard
How can I, how can I give you all my love baby
If you're always, always putting up your guard
This is not a circus
So don't you play me for a clown
How long can emotions keep on going up and down

'Cause it's impossible
Oh, baby it's impossible
For me to love you this way
It's impossible
Oh, baby it's impossible
If you're making it this way

U2 - Beautiful day

The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There's no room
No space to rent in this town

You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not moving anywhere

You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace

It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of her imagination

You love this town
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you

It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out

It was a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
Beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
Don't need it now
Was a beautiful day

Turn Your Lights Down Low - Lauryn Hill & Bob Marley

Turn your lights down low
And pull your window curtain
Oh let the moon come shining in
Into our life again
Saying ooh, it´s been a long, long time
(Long, long time)
I got this message for you girl
But it seems I was never on time
Did I wanna get through to you girl?
On time, on time (word)
I want to give you some love
I want to give you some good, good loving
(Uh, uh, right, uh)
Oh I, oh I, oh I
Yeah I want to give you some good, good loving
Turn your lights down low
(Word, word, uh, uh)
Never ever try to resist, oh no
(Na, na, na, na)
Let your love come shining in
(Na, na, na, na)
Into our lives again
(Na, na, na, na)
And ooh, I love you
(I love you, I love you)
And I want you to know right now
(Know right now)
Ooh I love you

That I, that I
I wanna give you some love (uh, yeah)
I wanna give you some good, good loving
Oh I, oh I, oh I
I wanna give you some good, good loving (yeah uh-uh)
Loving you is a like a song I replay
Every three minutes and thirty seconds of every day (uh, uh)
And every chorus was written for us to recite (right)
Every beautiful melody of devotion every night
It´s potion like this ocean that might carry me
In a wave of emotion to ask you to marry me
And every word, every second, and every third
Expresses the happiness more clearly than ever heard (uh)
And when I play them, every chord is a poem Telling the Lord howgrateful I am cause I know him (what? word)
The harmonies possess a sensation similar to your caress (uh)
If you´re asking then I´m telling you it´s yes
Stand in love, take my hand in love, God bless (right)
I want to give you some good, good loving
I want to give you some love
I want to give you some good, good loving
Oh I, oh I, oh I
I wanna give you some good, good loving
Good, good, good loving
(I wanna give you some good loving)

Baby I Love Your Way - Peter Frampton

Shadows grow so long before my eyes
And they're moving across the page
Suddenly the day turns into night
Far away from the city
Don't hesitate
'Cause your love won't wait

(Chorus)
Ooh baby I love your way
Wanna tell you I love your way
Wanna be with you night and day

Moon appears to shine and light the sky
With the help of some firefly
Wonder how they have the power to shine, shine, shine
I can see them under the pine
Don't hesitate
Cause your love won't wait

(chorus)

Well don't hesitate
Cause your love won't wait

I can see the sunset in your eyes
Brown and gray, blue besides
Clouds are stalking islands in the sun
I wish I could buy one
Out of season

Don't hesitate
Cause your love won't wait

(chorus)

Queen - The Show Must Go On

Empty spaces - what are we living for
Abandoned places - I guess we know the score
On and on, does anybody know what we are looking for
Another hero, another mindless crime
Behind the curtain, in the pantomime
Hold the line, does anybody want to take it anymore
The show must go on
The show must go on, yeah
Inside my heart is breaking
My makeup may be flaking
But my smile still stays on
Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance
Another heartache, another failed romance
On and on, does anybody know what we are living for?
I guess I'm learning, I must be warmer now
I'll soon be turning, round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free
The show must go on
The show must go on, yeah
Inside my heart is breaking
My makeup may be flaking but my smile still stays on
My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
Fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die
I can fly - my friends
The show must go on
The show must go on
I'll face it with a grin
I'm never giving in
On - with the show
I'll top the bill, I'll overkill
I have to find the will to carry on
On with the -
On with the show-
The show must go on...

Dreams be Dreams-Jack Johnson (I love Jack Johnson....)

She's just waiting for the summertime when the weathers fine
She could hitch a ride out of town
And so far away from that low town good for nothing mistake
making fool
With excuses like baby that was a long time ago
But that's just a euphemism if you want the truth he was out of
control
But a short times just a long time then your mind just won't let
it go

Well summer came along and it then was gone and so was she
Not from him because he followed her just to let her know
A dreams a dream
And all this livings so much harder than it seems
But girl don't let your dreams be dreams
You know this livings not so hard as it seems
Don't let your dreams dreams
Your dreams your dreams be dreams


I know it looks a little grammatically questionable, but that's how he sings it, running parts of it together. That song is so beautiful.

another two Lenny Kravitz favorites of mine

Lenny Kravitz - Believe in me

Where's the love we had
When did it go bad
Or am I just insecure
I give all I can
Baby I'm your man
Tell me what you're in this for
Remind me

I can't go on
I know not what to do
My heart is worn
I feel as if I'm through
Please believe in me
'Cause what I need is for you
To believe in me

Countless sleepless nights
Never-ending fights
I'm trying to make your dreams come true
I will sacrifice to find paradise
But I need to know that you
Remind me

I can't go on
I know not what to do
My heart is worn
I feel as if I'm through
Please believe in me
'Cause what I need is for you
To believe in me

I can't go on
I know not what to do
My heart is worn
I feel as if I'm through
Please believe in me
'Cause what I need is for you
To believe in me


Lenny Kravitz - Stillness of Heart

I'm out here on the street
There's no one left to meet
The things that were so sweet
No longer move my feet
But I keep trying
I keep on trying

All that I want is stillness of heart
So I can start
To find my way out of the dark
And into your heart

I got more than I can eat
A life that can't be beat
Yet still I feel this heat
I'm feeling incomplete
What am I buying?
My soul is crying

All that I want is stillness of heart
So I can start
To find my way out of the dark
And into your heart

All that I want is stillness of heart
So I can start
To find my way out of the dark
And into your heart

Where's the love
What is this what we're living
Where's the love
We've got to keep on giving
Where's the love
What happened to forgiving
Anyone?

All that I want is stillness of heart
So I can start
To find my way out of the dark
And into your heart

Bob Marley & The Wailers - Get Up Stand Up

Get up, stand up
Stand up for your right
Get up, stand up
Don't give up the fight
Get up, stand up
Stand up for your right
Get up, stand up
Don't give up the fight

Preacher man don't tell me
Heaven is under the earth
I know you don't know what life is really worth
It's not all that glitters in gold and
Half the story has never been told
So now you see the light
Stand up for your right, come on

You stand up for your right

Get up, stand up
Stand up for your right
Get up, stand up
Don't give up the fight
Get up, stand up
Stand up for your right
Get up, stand up
Don't give up the fight

Most people think great God will come from the sky
Take away every pain and make everybody feel high
But if you knew what life is worth
You would look for yours on earth
And now that you see the light
You stand up for your right, Jah

Get up, stand up
Stand up for your right
Get up, stand up
Don't give up the fight (life is your right)
Get up, stand up (so we can't give up the fight)
Stand up for your right (Lord Lord)
Get up, stand up (people struggling on)
Don't give up the fight (yeah)

We're sick and tired of your ism and skism game
Die and go to heaven in Jesus' name, Lord
We know and we understand
Almighty God is a living man
You can fool some people sometimes
But you can't fool all the people all the time
So now we see the light (what you gonna do)
We gonna stand up for our right (yeah yeah)

Get up, stand up (in the morning)
Stand up for your right (in the night)
Get up, stand up
Don't give up the fight (don't give it up, don't give it up)
Get up, stand up (get up stand up)
Stand up for your right (get up stand up)

Guilty - Blue

I never want to play the games that people play
I never want to hear the things they gotta say
I've found everything I need
I never wanted anymore than I can see
I only want you to believe


If it's wrong to tell the truth
Then what am I supposed to do
When all I want to do is speak my mind
If it's wrong to do what's right
I'm prepared to testify
If loving you with all my heart's a crime
Then I'm guilty

I wanna give you all the things you never had
Don't try to tell me how he treats you isn't bad
I need you back in my life
I never wanted just to be the other guy (be the other guy)
I never wanted to live a lie

If it's wrong to tell the truth
What am I supposed to do
All I want to do is speak my mind
If it's wrong to do what's right
I'm prepared to testify
If loving you with all my heart's a crime
Then I'm guilty

Girl I followed my heart
Followed the truth
Right from the start it led me to you
Please don't leave me this way
I'm guilty now all I have to say

If it's wrong to tell the truth
Then what am I supposed to do
When all I want to do is speak my mind
If it's wrong to do what's right
I'm prepared to testify
If loving you with all my hearts a crime
Then I'm guilty

What am I supposed to do
Then I'm guilty
All I wanna do is speak my mind
Gulity
Then I'm guilty
I'm prepared to testify
If it's wrong to do what's right then tell me about this feeling inside
If loving you with all my hearts a crime
I'm Guilty

Every Breath You take - The Police

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take

I'll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay

I'll be watching you

O can't you see
You belong to me
My poor heart aches
With every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake

I'll be watching you

Since you've gone I been lost without a trace
I dream at night I can only see your face
I look around but it's you I can't replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying baby, baby, please

O can't you see
You belong to me
My poor heart aches
With every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you

Every move you make
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

"Graduation (Friends Forever)"- Vitamin C

And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
Where we're gonna be when we turn 25
I keep thinking times will never change
Keep on thinking things will always be the same
But when we leave this year we won't be coming back
No more hanging out cause we're on a different track
And if you got something that you need to say
You better say it right now cause you don't have another day
Cause we're moving on and we can't slow down
These memories are playing like a film without sound
And I keep thinking of that night in June
I didn't know much of love
But it came too soon
And there was me and you
And then we got real blue
Stay at home talking on the telephone
We'd get so excited, we'd get so scared
Laughing at ourselves thinking life's not fair
And this is how it feels

As we go on
We remember
All the times we
Had together
And as our lives change
Come Whatever
We will still be
Friends Forever

So if we get the big jobs
And we make the big money
When we look back now
Will our jokes still be funny?
Will we still remember everything we learned in school?
Still be trying to break every single rule
Will little brainy Bobby be the stockbroker man?
Will Heather find a job that won't interfere with her tan?
I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
Keep on thinking it's a time to fly
And this is how it feels

La, la, la, la:
Yeah, yeah, yeah
La, la, la, la:
We will still be friends forever

Will we think about tomorrow like we think about now?
Can we survive it out there?
Can we make it somehow?
I guess I thought that this would never end
And suddenly it's like we're women and men
Will the past be a shadow that will follow us 'round?
Will these memories fade when I leave this town
I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
Keep on thinking it's a time to fly

here's my most favorite Christmas song in the whole wide world...

The Christmas Song, by Mel Torme
(Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)


Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos
Everybody knows a turkey and some
Mistletoe help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
to see if Reindeer really know how to fly
And so, I'm offering this simple phrase to kids
from one to ninety-two
Altho it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you...

Dream On - Aerosmith

Every time that I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer.
The past is gone,
It went by like dusk to dawn.
Isn't that the way
Everybody's got their dues in life to pay?

Yeah, I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes.
I know it's everybody's sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life's in books' written pages.
Live and learn from fools and from sages.
You know it's true,
All the things come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the years,
Sing for the laughter and sing for the tears,
Sing with me, if it's just for today,
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away.

(Guitar Solo)

Well, sing with me, sing for the years,
Sing for the laughter and sing for the tears,
Sing with me, if it's just for today,
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away.

Dream on, dream on, dream on,
Dream yourself a dream come true.
Dream on, dream on, dream on,
And dream until your dream comes true.

Dream on! Dream on! Dream on! Dream on! Dream on! Dream on! Dream on!

Sing with me, sing for the years,
Sing for the laughter and sing for the tears,
Sing with me, if it's just for today,
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away.

Sing with me, sing for the years,
Sing for the laughter and sing for the tears,
Sing with me, if it's just for today,
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

Snow patrol - chocolate

This could be the very minute
I'm aware i'm alive
All these places feel like home

With a name i'd never chosen
I can make my first steps
As a child of 25

This is the straw, final straw in the
Roof of my mouth as I lie to you
Just because i'm sorry doesn't mean
I didn't enjoy it at the time.

You're the only thing that I love
Scares me more every day
On my knees I think clearer

Goodness knows I saw it coming
Or at least i'll claim I did
But in truth i'm lost for words

What have I done? It's too late for that
What have I become? Truth is nothing yet
A simple mistake starts the hardest time
I promise i'll do anything you ask, this time.

Embrace - Gravity - I think this is a beautiful song

honey,
it's been a long time coming,
and i can't stop now
such a long time running,
and i can't stop now
do you hear my heart beating?
can you hear that sound?
'cause i can't help thinking
that i don't look down

and then i looked up at the sun
and i could see
oh, the way that gravity turns for you and me
and then i looked up at the sky
and saw the sun
and the way that gravity pulls on everyone
on everyone

baby,
it's been a long time waiting,
such a long, long time
and i can't stop smiling,
oh i can't stop now
but do you hear my heart beating?
ah can you hear that sound?
'cause i can't help crying
and i won't look down

and then i looked up at the sun
and i could see
oh, the way that gravity turns on you and me
and then i looked up at the sun
and saw the sky
and the way that gravity pulls on you and i
on you and i

Bushwhacker Bob and his mother called Mum, Constance and Thickley just want to have fun.

Bull Gator and Axl are always left sore. If you have a deal just call Buddy Boar,
The Platypus brothers are a-backin' about, the kiwi, the bushrats, have we left anyone out?

Well, except for PurpleRainbow's "The River" it's been pretty low level so far, :devil: so I'm here to change it: :angel:

Suzanne, Leonard Cohen

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
And you know that she's half crazy
But that's why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China
And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her
Then she gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind.
And Jesus was a sailor
When he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching
From his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see him
He said "All men will be sailors then
Until the sea shall free them"
But he himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
And you want to travel with him
And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you'll trust him
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind.

Now Suzanne takes your hand
And she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters
And the sun pours down like honey
On our lady of the harbour
And she shows you where to look
Among the garbage and the flowers
There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that you can trust her
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind.

Dashboard Confessionals - As Lovers Go
it's also on the Shrek 2 soundtrack so all you losers should go check it out.

She said, "I've got to be honest,
You're wasting your time if you're fishin' around here."
And I said, "You must be mistaken,
I'm not foolin', this feelin' is real."
She said, "You've gotta be crazy!
What do you take me for? Some kinda of easy mark?"

"No, you've got wits,
You've got looks,
You've got passion,
But i swear that you've got me all wrong."

All wrong
All wrong
But you've got me

I'll be true, I'll be useful, I'll be cavalier,
I'll be yours my dear
I'll belong to you
If you just let me through

This is easy as lovers go.
So dont complicate it by hesitating.
This is wonderful as loving goes.
This is tailor-made,
What's the sense in waiting?

I said, "I've got to be honest,
I've been waiting for you all of my life."
For so long I thought I was asylum bound,
But just seeing you makes me think twice.
And being with you here makes me sane.
I fear I'll go crazy if you leave my side.

"You've got wits,
You've got looks,
You've got passion,
But are you brave enough to leave with me tonight?"

Tonight
Tonight
You've got me

I'll be true, I'll be useful, I'll be cavalier,
I'll be yours my dear
I'll belong to you
If you just let me through

This is easy as lovers go. So dont complicate it by hesitating.
This is wonderful as loving goes.
This is tailor-made, what's the sense in waiting?

This is easy as lovers go. So dont complicate it by hesitating.
This is wonderful as loving goes.

Here's one of the few songs that I can endlessly listen to end never get bored with.

Kansas - Dust in the wind

I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone
All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind
Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind

Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away, all your money won't another minute buy

Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind

Five Little Penguins
Five little penguins, I once knew,
Short ones, fat ones, skinny ones, too.
But, the one little penguin with the RED bow tie,
He led the others because he like to slide,
He led the others because he like to slide.

Over the ice he would go,
Wibble wobble,
Wibble wobble, to and fro,
But, the one little penguin with the RED bow tie,
He led the others because he like to slide,
He led the others because he like to slide.

Are You Gonna Go My Way - Lenny Kravitz

I was born long ago
I am the chosen I'm the one
I have come to save the day
And I won't leave until I'm done
So that's why you've got to try
You got to breath and have some fun
Though I'm not paid I play this game
And I won't stop until I'm done

But what I really want to know is
Are you gonna go my way?
And I got to got to know

I don' tknow why we always cry
This we must leave and get undone
We must engage and rearrange
And turn this planet back to one
So tell me why we got to die
And kill each other one by one
we've got to love and rub-a-dub
We've got to dance and be in love

But what I really want to know is
Are you gonna go my way?
And I got to got to know

Are you gonna go my way?
'Cause baby I got to know
Yeah sure

OK Call me crazy, but I like Liberty X :o I actually relate to some of their lyrics. One of those is 'Everybody Cries'

Liberty X - Everybody Cries



Oh baby let it rain
I feel it washing over me
The anxiety
I watch it fade away

'Cause everything can change
It changes right in front of me
'Cause you set me free
To where I wanna be

There's something wrong
Is there a reason why?
We're putting up a fight
Don't be ashamed
To open up your heart
Everybody cries
(everybody cries)

Goodbye is kinda hard
It's not a thing I like to do
Can you pull me through
To a better day
(To a better day)

Forever in my heart
You'll always be a part of me
You believed in me
And that I won't forget (and that I won't forget)

There's something wrong
Is there a reason why? (is there a reason why?)
We're putting up a fight (putting up a fight)
Don't be ashamed
To open up your heart
Everybody cries

I look above
And search into the sky
So help me make it right (help me make it right)
And now you're gone
So what am I to do?
Everybody cries

No one should ever be lonely (should ever be lonely)
And we were meant to walk together (together)

There's something wrong
Is there a reason why? (is there a reason why?)
We're putting up a fight (putting up a fight)
Don't be ashamed
To open up your heart (open up your heart)
Everybody cries

I look above
And search into the sky (search into the sky)
So help me make it right (help me make it right)
And now you're gone
So what am I to do?
Everybody cries

There's something wrong
Is there a reason why? (is there a reason why?)
We're putting up a fight (putting up a fight)
Don't be ashamed
To open up your heart (open up your heart)
Everybody cries

here are two German songs I really like...
Xavier Naidoo - Sie Sieht Mich Nicht

Wenn sie vorbei geht dann scheint es wie ein Feuerwerk
Vor einem Himmel ist es sie, die ich bemerk'
Ihre Königlichkeit ist nur ein König wert
Und ich bin wenig königlich
Sie sieht mich einfach nicht

Wenn sie tanzt dann tanzt alles, ihre Hüften und Arme
Alles erhellt sich im Licht dieser Dame
Sie hat die Anmut und die Reinheit, die die ander'n nicht haben
Sie hat alles was ich nicht hab'
Sie sieht mich einfach nicht

Je mehr ich mich ihr nähere desto ungeschickter bin ich
Mein Körper, meine Stimme, mein Gesicht
Es gibt Grenzen, die man trotz Millionen von Soldaten wegwischt
Aber unsere überwindet man nicht

Er hat Stil, ist delikat, bedient sich Gesten so zart
Das leichte Leben dieser Welt ist seine Art
Er ist so sehr auch das, was er nicht zu sein vermag
Doch die Frauen wissen nicht
Von diesen Dingen wenn er spricht
Sie sieht mich einfach nicht

Oh, man kann so vieles ändern
Wenn man zum Kämpfen bereit ist
Aber nicht diese Ungerechtigkeit

Wenn sie vorbei geht dann scheint es wie ein Feuerwerk
Vor einem Himmel ist es sie, die ich bemerk'
Ihre Königlichkeit ist nur ein König wert
Ein anderer als ich
Ich bin wenig königlich
Sie sieht mich einfach nicht
Sie sieht mich einfach nicht
Sie sieht mich einfach nicht
Sie sieht mich einfach nicht



Xavier Naidoo - Wo Willst Du Hin

Wo willst du hin?
Denn es macht jetzt keinen Sinn
Fortzugeh'n, ich halt ich dich fest
Such dich Nord, Ost, Süd und West
Um dich anzufleh'n nicht fortzugeh'n

Ich werd' dich suchen, muss dich finden
In alle Länder fall ich ein
Muss mich an deine Wege binden, dreh und wende jeden Stein
Wo immer du auch sein willst, ich finde diesen Platz
Wenn du mir dann verzeih'n willst, find ich dich mein Schatz

Wo willst du hin?
Denn es macht jetzt keinen Sinn
Fortzugeh'n, ich halt ich dich fest
Such dich Nord, Ost, Süd und West
Um dich anzufleh'n nicht fortzugeh'n

Es wird so ausgeh'n wie du es magst
Weißt du noch als du neben mir in der Sonne lagst?
Ich werde all das tun, was du sagst
Ich werde da sein, wenn du nach mir fragst

Wo willst du hin?
Denn es macht jetzt keinen Sinn
Fortzugeh'n, ich halt ich dich fest
Such dich Nord, Ost, Süd und West
Um dich anzufleh'n

Überleg nicht lange wenn ich vor dir steh
Und zu dir sage, dass ich nur mit dir geh'
Ich bring dich nach Hause
Bis dahin gönn ich mir keine

Wo willst du hin?
Denn es macht jetzt keinen Sinn
Von dir fortzugehen, ich halt ich dich fest
Such dich Nord, Ost, Süd und West
Um dich anzufleh'n, wo willst du hin?

Wo willst du hin?
Denn es macht jetzt keinen Sinn
Fortzugehn, ich halt ich dich fest
Such dich Nord, Ost, Süd und West
Um dich anzufleh'n nicht fortzugeh'n

Eagle eye cherry - Save Tonight

Go on and close the curtains
'cause all we need is candlelight
You and me and the bottle of wine
gonna hold you tonight, oh yeah

Well, we know I'm going away
And how I wish, I wish it weren't so
so take this wine and drink with me
let's delay our misery...

Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I'll be gone
Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I'll be gone

There's a log on the fire
and it burns like me for you
Tomorrow comes with one desire..
to take me away, it's true

It ain't easy to say goodbye
darling please don't start to cry
'cause girl you know I've got to go, oh
and Lord I wish it wasn't so

Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I'll be gone
Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I'll be gone

Tomorrow comes to take me away
I wish that I, that I could stay
but girl you know I've got to go, oh
and Lord I wish it wasn't so

Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I'll be gone
Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I'll be gone
Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I'll be gone
Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I'll be gone

Liberty X - I Just Wanna


So ya full of every little anecdote
I wanna hear ya hit a different note
You're the way I wanna rock your boat
Just right, just right
I'm in a place you've never been before
So check yourself before you bang on my door
Be prepared and ready to explore
We gonna take this higher
I don't mind those accusations
They're just a one-way conversation
And I don't need no complications
Alright alright
We don't have to go the distance
So drop your…. resistance
Feels much better when you got assistance
And you're gonna be mine

Chorus
I don't want you to treat me right
I just wanna uh uh
And I don't need you to spend the night
I only wanna uh uh
Don't assume you're doing me wrong
If you wanna uh uh
I just wanna go…. all night long

Peel the wrapping see what's underneath
Licking your lips cause it taste so sweet
I'll make your day, I'll make your whole damn week
If you , if you
Gimme a feeling like I've never known
No limitations you can make your own
And when it's over don't look over your shoulder
Get up and go…..
Pick me up on every innuendo
Play me like the new nintendo
When you're done, it's around we go
Back to the start
There's nothing wrong with being superficial
Load me up pull the trigger just like a pistol
And then… there goes the whistle
It's all over now

Chorus

I don't want you to treat me right
I just wanna uh uh
And I don't need you to spend the night
I only wanna uh uh
Don't assume you're doing me wrong
If you wanna uh uh
I just wanna go…. all night long

I just wanna be with you
Won't ask you any questions
Don't care where you take me to
Just don't make me your possession
No matter what goes down tonight
We'll go our seperate ways by the mornin' light
But till then you gotta do me right
But I don't need, don't need

Chorus
I don't want you to treat me right
I just wanna uh uh
And I don't need you to spend the night
I only wanna uh uh
Don't assume you're doing me wrong
If you wanna uh uh
I just wanna go…. all night long




I just wanna UHUH :lol: :crazy:

Toni Braxton - Breathe Again

If I never feel you in my arms again
If I never feel your tender kiss again
If I never hear I love you now and then
Will I never make love to you once again
Please understand if love ends
Then I promise you, I promise you
That, that I shall never breathe again
Breathe again
Breathe again
That I shall never breathe again
Breathe again

And I can’t stop thinkin’ about
About the way things used to be
And I can’t stop thinkin’ about
About the love that you make to me
And I can’t get you outta my head
How in the world will I begin
To let you walk right out my life
And blow my heart away

And I can’t stop carin’ about
About the apple of my eye
And I can’t stop doin’ without
Without the center of my life
And I can’t get you outta my head
And I know I can’t pretend
That I won’t die if you decide
You won’t see me again

If I never feel you in my arms again
If I never feel your tender kiss again
If I never hear I love you now and then
Will I never make love to you once again
Please understand if love ends
Then I promise you, I promise you
That, that I shall never breathe again
Breathe again
Breathe again
That I shall never breathe again
Breathe again

And I can’t stop thinkin’ about
About the way my life would be
No I can’t stop thinkin’ about
How could your love be leavin’ me
And I can’t get you outta my mind
God knows how hard I tried
And if you walk right out my life
God knows I’d surely die
And I can’t stop doin’ without
Without the rythm of my heart
No I can’t stop doin’ without
For I would surely fall apart
And I can’t get you outta my mind
Cause I know I can’t deny it
And I would die if you decide
You won’t see me again

If I never feel you in my arms again
If I never feel your tender kiss again
If I never hear I love you now and then
Will I never make love to you once again
Please understand if love ends
Then I promise you, I promise you
That, that I shall never breathe again
Breathe again
Breathe again
That I shall never breathe again
Breathe again

Savage Garden - Crash & Burn

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned it’s back on you
Give me a moment please to tame your wild wild heart
I know you feel like the walls are closing in on you
It’s hard to find relief and people can be so cold
When darkness is upon your door and you feel like you can’t take anymore

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I’ll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You’re not alone

When you feel all alone
And a loyal friend is hard to find
You’re caught in a one way street
With the monsters in your head
When hopes and dreams are far away and
You feel like you can’t face the day

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I’ll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You’re not alone

And there has always been heartache and pain
And when it’s over you’ll breathe again
You’ll breath again

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned it’s back on you
Give me a moment please
To tame your wild wild heart

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I’ll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You’re not alone

Westlife - Loneliness Knows Me By Name :sad:

Loneliness is always looking for a friend
It found me once and it has been around since then
Loneliness is never waiting by the door
It sweeps right through and it will never be ignored
Why, hwy was I chosen?
Why am I left without?

The love of my life, the love that I need
The love that they say is in life for free
The love of dreams, the love that I want
Loneliness knows me by name

Loneliness knows everything I keep inside
My endless thought in the silence of the night
Loneliness is the one who made me see
Ain't nobody else who can make a change but me
Why, hwy was I chosen?
Why am I left without?

[Chorus]

Life is more and that would be the vacant space
The cried out tears and a never ending maze
I have found what only loneliness provides
A strength within knowing I will find

"That Don't Impress Me Much"- Shania Twain

I've known a few guys who thought they were pretty smart
But you've got being right down to an art
You think you're a genius-you drive me up the wall
You're a regular original, a know-it-all
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're something else

Okay, so you're a rocket scientist
That don't impress me much
So you got the brain but have you got the touch
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night
That don't impress me much

I never knew a guy who carried a mirror in his pocket
And a comb up his sleeve-just in case
And all that extra hold gel in your hair oughtta lock it
'Cause Heaven forbid it should fall outta place

Oh-oo-oh, you think you're special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're something else

Okay, so you're Brad Pitt
That don't impress me much
So you got the looks but have you got the touch
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night
That don't impress me much

You're one of those guys who likes to shine his machine
You make me take off my shoes before you let me get in
I can't believe you kiss your car good night
C'mon baby tell me-you must be jokin', right!

Oh-oo-oh, you think you're special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're something else

Okay, so you've got a car
That don't impress me much
So you got the moves but have you got the touch
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night

That don't impress me much
You think you're cool but have you got the touch
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm on the long, cold, lonely night
That don't impress me much

Okay, so what do you think you're Elvis or something...
Whatever
That don't impress me

"Ka-Ching"- Shania Twain

We live in a greedy little world--
that teaches every little boy and girl
To earn as much as they can possibly--
then turn around and
Spend it foolishly
We've created us a credit card mess
We spend the money that we don't possess
Our religion is to go and blow it all
So it's shoppin' every Sunday at the mall

All we ever want is more
A lot more than we had before
So take me to the nearest store

[Chorus:]
Can you hear it ring
It makes you wanna sing
It's such a beautiful thing--Ka-ching!
Lots of diamond rings
The happiness it brings
You'll live like a king
With lots of money and things

When you're broke go and get a loan
Take out another mortgage on your home
Consolidate so you can afford
To go and spend some more when
you get bored

All we ever want is more
A lot more than we had before
So take me to the nearest store

[Repeat Chorus]

Let's swing
Dig deeper in your pocket
Oh, yeah, ha
Come on I know you've got it
Dig deeper in your wallet
Oh

All we ever want is more
A lot more than we had before
So take me to the nearest store

[Repeat Chorus]

Can you hear it ring
It makes you wanna sing
You'll live like a king
With lots of money and things
Ka-ching!

"Love's Divine"- Seal

Then the rainstorm came, over me
And I felt my spirit break
I had lost all of my, belief you see
And realized my mistake
But time through a prayer, to me
And all around me became still

I need love, love's divine
Please forgive me now I see that I've been blind
Give me love, love is what I need to help me know my name

Through the rainstorm came sanctuary
And I felt my spirit fly
I had found all of my reality
I realize what it takes

'Cause I need love, love's divine
Please forgive me now I see that I've been blind
Give me love, love is what I need to help me know my name

Oh I, don't bet (don't bend), don't break (don't break)
Show me how to live and promise me you won't forsake
'Cause love can help me know my name

Well I try to say there's nothing wrong
But inside I felt me lying all along
But the message here was plain to see
Believe me

'Cause I need love, love's divine
Please forgive me now I see that I've been blind
Give me love, love is what I need to help me know my name

Oh I, don't bet (don't bend), don't break (don't break)
Show me how to live and promise me you won't forsake
'Cause love can help me know my name

Love can help me know my name.

Seal - Kiss From A Rose

There used to be a greying tower alone on the sea
You became the light on the dark side of me
Love remained a drug that's the high and not the pill
But did you know
That when it snows
My eyes become large and
The light that you shine can be seen

Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey
Ooh, the more I get of you
Stranger it feels, yeah
And now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grave

There is so much a man can tell you
So much he can say
You remain, my power, my pleasure, my pain, baby
To me you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny
Won't you tell me is that healthy, baby?
But did you know
That when it snows
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen

Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey
Ooh, the more I get of you
Stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grave
I've been kissed by a rose on the grave

I've been kissed by a rose
I've been kissed by a rose on the grave
And if I should fall along the way
I've been kissed by a rose
Been kissed by a rose on the grave

There is so much a man can tell you
So much he can say
You remain, my power, my pleasure, my pain
To me you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny, yeah
Won't you tell me is that healthy, baby
But did you know
That when it snows
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen

Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey
Ooh, the more I get of you
Stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grave

Yes I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey
Ooh, the more I get of you
Stranger it feels, yeah
And now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grave
Now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grave

Santana & Rob Thomas - Smooth

Man it's a hot one
Like seven inches from the midday sun
I hear you whisper and the words melt everyone
But you stay so cool

My mu-equita, my Spanish Harlem Mona Lisa
You're my reason for reason
The step in my groove

And if you said this life ain't good enough
I would give my world to lift you up
I could change my life to better suit your mood
'Cause you're so smooth

And it's just like the ocean under the moon
Well that's the same emotion that I get from you
You got the kind of lovin' that can be so smooth
Gimme your heart, make it real
Or else forget about it

I'll tell you one thing
If you would leave it would be a crying shame
In every breath and every word I hear your name calling me out
Out from the barrio, you hear my rhythm from your radio
You feel the turning of the world so soft and slow
Turning you round and round

And if you said this life ain't good enough
I would give my world to lift you up
I could change my life to better suit your mood
'Cause you're so smooth

And it's just like the ocean under the moon
Well that's the same emotion that I get from you
You got the kind of lovin' that can be so smooth
Gimme your heart, make it real
Or else forget about it

Robbie Williams - Misunderstood

Trying to be misunderstood
But it doesn´t do me any good
Love the way they smiled at me
Held their face for eternity
Now let them all fly off

When it comes down
It all comes down
And you will not be found

When it´s over
It´s all over
Even if I make a sound

I´ll be misunderstood
By the beautiful and good
In this city

None of it was planned
Take me by the hand
Just don´t try and understand

Trying to be misunderstood
Just a product of my childhood
And still I find myself outside
You can´t say I haven´t tried
Perhaps I tried too hard

No excuses
I won´t apologise
Or justify your lies

Come and find me
Tell them to me
Look me in the eyes

I´ll be misunderstood
By the beautiful and good
In this city

None of this was planned
Take me by the hand
Just don´t try and understand

Can´t forgive – sorry to say
You don´t know you´re guilty anyway
Isn´t it funny how we don´t speak
The language of love

Christina Aguilera - Beautiful

Don't look at me

Every day is so wonderful
And suddenly, it's hard to breathe
Now and then, I get insecure
From all the fame, I'm so ashamed

I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring me down
So don't you bring me down today

To all your friends, you're delirious
So consumed in all your doom
Trying hard to fill the emptiness
The piece is gone and the puzzle undone
That's the way it is

You are beautiful no matter what they say
Words won't bring you down
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words won't bring you down
Don't you bring me down today...

No matter what we do
(no matter what we do)
No matter what they say
(no matter what they say)
We're the song inside the tune
Full of beautiful mistakes

And everywhere we go
(everywhere we go)
The sun will always shine
(sun will always shine)
And tomorrow we might wake on the other side
All the other times

We are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words won't bring us down
We are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words can't bring us down
Don't you bring me down today

Don't you bring me down today
Don't you bring me down today

Iris - Goo Goo Dolls

And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You are the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
'Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

(break and solo)

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am

Lullaby - The Cure


on candystripe legs spiderman comes
softly through the shadow of the evening sun
stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
looking for the victim shivering in bed
searching out fear in the gathering gloom and
suddenly! a movement in the corner of the
room! and there is nothing i can do when i
realise with freight that the spiderman is having
me for dinner tonight

quietly he laughs and shaking his head creeps
closer now closer to the foot of the bed and
softer than shadow and quicker than flies his
arms are all around me and his tongue in my
eyes "be still be calm be quiet now my precious
boy don't struggle like that or i will only love
you more for it's much too late to get away or
turn on the light the spiderman is having you
for dinner tonight"

and i feel like i'm being eaten by a thousand
million shivering furry holes and i know that in
the morning i will wake up in the shivering cold
and the spiderman is always hungry...

Here's a classic song by The Kinks! The lyrics to this one are really funny!

The Kinks - Lola

I met her in a club down in old Soho
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry-cola
See-oh-el-aye cola
She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said Lola
El-oh-el-aye Lola la-la-la-la Lola

Well I'm not the world's most physical guy
But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine
Oh my Lola la-la-la-la Lola
Well I'm not dumb but I can't understand
Why she walked like a woman and talked like a man
Oh my Lola la-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola

Well we drank champagne and danced all night
Under electric candlelight
She picked me up and sat me on her knee
And said dear boy won't you come home with me
Well I'm not the world's most passionate guy
But when I looked in her eyes well I almost fell for my Lola
La-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola
Lola la-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola
I pushed her away
I walked to the door
I fell to the floor
I got down on my knees
Then I looked at her and she at me

Well that's the way that I want it to stay
And I always want it to be that way for my Lola
La-la-la-la Lola
Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
It's a mixed up muddled up shook up world except for Lola
La-la-la-la Lola
Well I left home just a week before
And I'd never ever kissed a woman before
But Lola smiled and took me by the hand
And said dear boy I'm gonna make you a man

Well I'm not the world's most masculine man
But I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man
And so is Lola
La-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola
Lola la-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola

Here's a classic song by The Kinks! The lyrics to this one are really funny!

The Kinks - Lola

I met her in a club down in old Soho
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry-cola
See-oh-el-aye cola
She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said Lola
El-oh-el-aye Lola la-la-la-la Lola

Well I'm not the world's most physical guy
But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine
Oh my Lola la-la-la-la Lola
Well I'm not dumb but I can't understand
Why she walked like a woman and talked like a man
Oh my Lola la-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola

Well we drank champagne and danced all night
Under electric candlelight
She picked me up and sat me on her knee
And said dear boy won't you come home with me
Well I'm not the world's most passionate guy
But when I looked in her eyes well I almost fell for my Lola
La-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola
Lola la-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola
I pushed her away
I walked to the door
I fell to the floor
I got down on my knees
Then I looked at her and she at me

Well that's the way that I want it to stay
And I always want it to be that way for my Lola
La-la-la-la Lola
Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
It's a mixed up muddled up shook up world except for Lola
La-la-la-la Lola
Well I left home just a week before
And I'd never ever kissed a woman before
But Lola smiled and took me by the hand
And said dear boy I'm gonna make you a man

Well I'm not the world's most masculine man
But I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man
And so is Lola
La-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola
Lola la-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola

I :inlove: that song!! It's a great sing along song. :)

3 DOORS DOWN LYRICS

"Here Without You"

A hundred days have made me older
Since the last time that i saw your pretty face
A thousand lies have made me colder
And i don't think i can look at this the same
But all these miles that seperate
Disappear now when i'm dreaming of your face

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And i dream about you all the time
I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight it's only you and me

The miles just keep rollin'
As the people leave their way to say hello
I've heard this life was overrated
But i hope that it gets better as we go

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And i dream about you all the time
I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl its only you and me

Everything i know,and anywhere i go
It gets hard but it wont take away my love
And when the last one falls
When it's all said and done
It gets hard but it wont take away my love

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And i dream about you all the time
I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl its only you and me

Sung to: "I'm a Little Teapot"

I'm a little penguin, on the ice.
I think the cold is very nice.
I can hop around
first once, then twice.
I think ice is very nice.

Lenny Kravitz - I Belong To You

You are the flame in my heart
You light my way in the dark
You are the ultimate star

You lift me from up above
Your unconditional love
Takes me to paradise

I belong to you
And you, you belong to me too
You make my life complete
You make me feel so sweet

You make me feel so divine
Your soul and mind are entwined
Before you I was blind

But since I’ve opened my eyes
And with you there’s no disguise
So I could open up my mind

I always loved you from the start
But I could not figure out
That I had to do it everyday

So I put away the fight
Now I’m gonna live my life
Giving you the most in every way

I belong to you
And you, you belong to me too
You make my life complete
You make me feel so sweet

Oh, I belong to you
And you, you belong to me too
Oh, you make my life complete
You make me feel so sweet

By Your Side - Sade

You think I'd leave your side baby?
You know me better than that
Think I'd leave you down when you're down on your knees?
I wouldn't do that.
I'll tell you the right when you want...
I'll, I'll find the wound, if only you could sink into me...
Oh when you're cold I'll be there, hold you tight to me
When you're on the outside baby and you can't get in
I will show you, you're so much better than you know
When you're lost, when you're alone and you can't get backagain
I will find you darling and I'll bring you home
And if you want to cry I am here to dry your eyes, oooo...
In no time you'll be fine.....
You think I'd leave your side baby?
You know me better than that.
Think I'd leave you down when you're down on your knees?
I wouldn't do that
I'll tell you the right when you want...
I'll, I'll find the wound, If only you could sink into me....
Oh when you´re cold I'll be there to hold you tight to me, to me baby.
Ohh when you´re alone I'll be there by your side baby, by your side baby.
Oh when you´re cold I'll be there to hold you tight to me, to me baby.
Ohh when you´re alone I'll be there by your side baby

Travis-Side:


Well I believe there's someone watching over you
They're watching every single thing you say
And when you die they'll set you down and take you through
You'll realise one day that
The grass is always greener on the other side
The neighbours got a new car that you wanna drive
And when time is running out you wanna stay alive
We all live under the same sky
We all will live we all will die
There is no wrong
There is no right
The circle only has one side

We all try hard to live our lives in harmony
For fear of falling swiftly overboard
But life is both a major and a minor key
Just open up the chord

But the grass is always greener on the other side
The neighbours got a new car that you wanna drive
And when time is running out you wanna stay alive

We all live under the same sky
We all will live
We all will die
There is no wrong
There is no right
The circle only has one side

Santana - Black Magic Woman

Got a black magic woman
Got a black magic woman
I’ve got a black magic woman
Got me so blind I can’t see
That she’s a black magic woman
She’s trying to make a devil out of me

Don’t turn your back on me baby
Don’t turn your back on me baby
Yes don’t turn your back on me baby
Stop messing ’round with your tricks
Don’t 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 can’t leave you alone

I think this music really cute:

Unconditional Love - Victoria Beckham

You could give me diamonds
You could give me pearls
Give me all the fast cars
In the World
But there is only one thing
And its bigger than the sea
The only thing that matters
Is what you've given me

Chorus
When I see the bright lights in your eyes
Feel like a bird that's just learned to fly
From now until the end of time
I'm glad you came into my life
My gift sent from above
Unconditional love

You take me as I am
Not who I'm dressed up to be
Looking at you tells me
The best things in life are free
You're the blessing that I treasure
With a heart so true
Noone ever touched me
The way that you do

Chorus

With your innocence you opened up my heart
I knew that I would love you right from the very start
You turned my life around showed me a better way
Thoughts of you will always make me have a brighter day
When I'm by your side it helps to see me through
Can't express all the happiness when I'm with you
A gift from up above the one I'm dreaming of
I'll always cherish you my unconditional love

When I see the bright lights in your eyes
Feel like a bird that's just learned to fly
From now until the end of time
I'm glad you came into my life

Mike, love this song :D Hey Baby performed by Bruce Channel

How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You) - Marvin Gaye

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I needed the shelter of someone's arms and there you were
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs
and there you were
With sweet love and devotion
deeply touching my emotion
I want to stop and thank you baby
I just want to stop and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I close my eyes at night,
wondering where would I be without you in my life
Everything I did was just a bore,
everywhere I went it seems I'd been there before
But you brightened up for me all of my days
With a love so sweet in so many ways
I want to stop and thank you baby
I want to stop and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

You were better to me than I've been to myself
For me, there's you and there ain't nobody else
I want to stop and thank you baby
I just want to stop and thank you baby

(repeat and fade):

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

U2 - Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

I have climbed highest mountain
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you

I have run
I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like fire
This burning desire

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
Well yes I’m still running

You broke the bonds and you
Loosed the chains
Carried the cross
Of my shame
Of my shame
You know I believed it

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for...

U2 - Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own

Tough, you think you've got the stuff
You're telling me and anyone
You're hard enough

You don't have to put up a fight
You don't have to always be right
Let me take some of the punches
For you tonight

Listen to me now - I need to let you know - You don't have to go it alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror - And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

We fight all the time
You and I...that's alright
We're the same soul
I don't need...I don't need to hear you say
That if we weren't so alike
You'd like me a whole lot more

Listen to me now - I need to let you know - You don't have to go it alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror - And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

I know that we don't talk
I'm sick of it all
Can - you - hear - me - when - I -
Sing, you're the reason I sing
You're the reason why the opera is in me...

Where are we now?
I've got to let you know
A house still doesn't make a home
Don't leave me here alone...

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you that makes it hard to let go
Sometimes you can't make it on your own
Sometimes you can't make it
The best you can do is to fake it
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

Take Me Out - Franz Ferdinand

So if you're lonely
You know I'm here waiting for you
I'm just a crosshair
I'm just a shot away from you
And if you leave here
You leave me broken, shattered, I lie
I'm just a crosshair
I'm just a shot, then we can die

I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say don't you know
You say you don't go
I say... take me out!

I say you don't show
Don't move, time is slow
I say... take me out!

If I move this could die
If I move this could die
I want you...to take me out!

I say you don't know
You say you don't go
I say... take me out!

I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here
I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say don't you know?
You say you don't know
I say take me out

If I wink, this can die
If I wane, this can die
I want you to take me out

If I move, this could die
If I move, this could die
Come on, take me out

I know I won't be leaving here
I know I won't be leaving here
I know I won't be leaving here
I know I won't be leaving here with you

Noir Désir - Le vent nous portera

Je n'ai pas peur de la route
Faudrait voir, faut qu'on y goûte
Des méandres au creux des reins
Et tout ira bien là
Le vent nous portera

Ton message à la Grande Ourse
Et la trajectoire de la course
Un instantané de velours
Même s'il ne sert à rien va
Le vent l'emportera
Tout disparaîtra mais
Le vent nous portera

La caresse et la mitraille
Et cette plaie qui nous tiraille
Le palais des autres jours
D'hier et demain
Le vent les portera

Génetique en bandouillère
Des chromosomes dans l'atmosphère
Des taxis pour les galaxies
Et mon tapis volant dis ?
Le vent l'emportera
Tout disparaîtra mais
Le vent nous portera


Ce parfum de nos années mortes
Ce qui peut frapper à ta porte
Infinité de destins
On en pose un et qu'est-ce qu'on en retient?
Le vent l'emportera

Pendant que la marée monte
Et que chacun refait ses comptes
J'emmène au creux de mon ombre
Des poussières de toi
Le vent les portera
Tout disparaîtra mais
Le vent nous portera

Here's my favourite song by Toto. I played it countless times before going to Africa, the lyrics are pretty good, actually!

Toto - Africa

I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She?s coming in 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say, hurry boy, it?s waiting there for you

Chorus:
It?s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There?s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what?s right
Sure as kilimanjaro rises like olympus above the serengeti
I seek to cure what?s deep inside, frightened of this thing that I?ve become

Chorus

(instrumental break)

Hurry boy, she?s waiting there for you

It?s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There?s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in africa, I bless the rains down in africa
I bless the rains down in africa, I bless the rains down in africa
I bless the rains down in africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

The Alan Parsons Project - La Sagrada Familia

Who knows where the road may
lead us, only the fool would say
Who knows if we'll meet along the
way
Follow the brightest star as far
as the brave may dare
What will we find when we get
there

La Sagrada Familia we pray the
storm will soon be over
La Sagrada Familia for the lion
and the lamb

Who knows where the winds may
blow us, only a fool would say
Who knows if we'll ever reach the
shore
Follow a rising sun with eyes that
may only stare
What kind of fire will burn us
there? What kind of fire?
Only a fool would say

La Sagrada Familia the wind has
changed the storm is over
La Sagrada Familia for the lion
and the lamb
La Sagrada Familia we thank the
Lord the danger's over
La Sagrada Familia there's peace
throughout the land

Under clear blue skies our voices
rise in songs of glory
And for all those years our eyes
and ears were filled with tears

Who knows where the world may
turn us, only a fool would say
Who knows what the fate may
have in store
Follow the light of truth as far
as our eyes can see
How should we knows where that
may be? How should we know?

Then the angry skies, the battle
cries, the sounds of glory
And for all those years out eyes
and ears were filled with tears

Who knows where the road may
lead us, only a fool would say
Who knows what's been lost
along the way
Look for the promised land in all
of the dreams we share
How will we know when we are
there? How will we know?
Only a fool would say

La Sagrada Familia the war is won
the battle's over
La Sagrada Familia for the lion
and the lamb
La Sagrada Familia we thank the
lord the danger's over
La Sagrada Familia behold the
mighty hand
La Sagrada Familia the night is
gone the waiting's over
La Sagrada Familia there's peace
throughout the land

Until the next time
Until the next time

La Sagrada Familia

Belle and Sebastian- get me away from here I'm dying

Ooh! get me away from here I’m dying
Play me a song to set me free
Nobody writes them like they used to
So it may as well be me
Here on my own now after hours
Here on my own now on a bus
Think of it this way
You could either be successful or be us
With our winning smiles, and us
With our catchy tunes and words
Now we’re photogenic
You know, we don’t stand a chance

Oh, I’ll settle down with some old story
About a boy who’s just like me
Thought there was love in everything and everyone
You’re so naive!
They always reach a sorry ending
They always get it in the end
Still it was worth it as I turned the pages solemnly, and then
With a winning smile, the poor boy
With naivety succeeds
At the final moment, I cried
I always cry at endings

Oh, that wasn’t what I meant to say at all
From where I’m sitting, rain
Falling against the lonely tenement
Has set my mind to wander
Into the windows of my lovers
They never know unless I write
This is no declaration, I just thought I’d let you know goodbye
Said the hero in the story
It is mightier than swords
I could kill you sure
But I could only make you cry with these words

here's another song I really like:

Joss Stone - Spoiled

I kinda thought that I'd be better off by myself
I've never been so wrong before
You made it impossible for me to ever
Love somebody else
And now I don't know what I left you for

See I thought that I could replace you
He can't love me the way you do
Till now I never knew, baby

I'm spoiled
By your love, boy
No matter how I try to change my mind
What's the point it's just a waste of time
I'm spoiled
By your touch, boy
The love you give is just too hard to fight
Don't want to live without you in my life
I'm spoiled

I tried to tell myself that I'd be over you in a week or two
But baby, that was 'bout a year ago
I've never seen the word love so personified as I do with you
And that is why I just can't let go, oh no

I'm spoiled
By your love, boy
No matter how I try to change my mind
What's the point it's just a waste of time
I'm spoiled
By your touch, boy
The love you give is just too hard to fight
Don't want to live without you in my life
I'm spoiled

Spoil me
And I would only be fooling myself if I tried to
Believe there's room for someone else in my heart
There ain't no way I'm getting over you
I don't know what I've been trying to prove
I'm hopeless, helpless when it comes to you

I'm spoiled
By your love, boy
No matter how I try to change my mind
What's the point it's just a waste of time
I'm spoiled
By your touch, boy
The love you give is just too hard to fight
Don't want to live without you in my life
I'm spoiled

I like this one from the new commercial of Lacoste! it's cute and also the commercial is really cute! :) hehe

It's over now - Natasha Thomas

What kind of love have you got
You should be home but you're not
I don't wanna believe that it's over now
I could be wrong but I'm not
And you still think you're on heart
I dont wanna believe that it's over now

Can you tell me a secret
Then I'll tell you mine
Show me that you still love me
Then I will show real love
Uh baby

Refrain

You are walking the wire
Looking for a loving between
But you don't have desire
Do you know what I mean
Uh baby

Refrain

It's over now

Wake up you loose my loving
Wake up we're used to thinking
Think twice about the things
That you have said and done

Wake up you loose my loving
Wake up we're used to thinking
Think twice about the things
That you have said and done

Refrain

It's over now

Wanna change something that's so good

You keep on acting like a fool
You need to know it's me not you
And if you didn't know it girl it's true

And try to understand why
He is a part of my life
I know it's killing you inside

You're the past, I'm the future
Get away it's my time to shine

Your silly games I won't allow
The boy is mine without a doubt
You might as well throw in the towel

When I'm the one that brought him to
This special place in my heart
Cause he was my love right from the start

Made in London - Dirty Water

I never thought that you could be that way,
Friends from young and now you've changed,
Love and trust has turned to hate,
If I'd've known you'd do me over,
Decieving me in a big way,
I never thought that you'd betray

Why did I bother?
Shouldn't have bothered,
Tryin' to keep my cool with you,
Tellin' lies I could not see through,
Why did I bother?
Shouldn't have bothered,
Like sisters I would kill for you,
Now I know your words are not true

Now you can't spend all of your time,
With dirty water on your mind,
Can't see through unless it's blue,
The bottom of dirty water,
You're like the devil in disguise,
Double faced and telling lies,
Can't see through unless it's blue,
The bottom of dirty water

As evil thoughts dwell in your soul,
Driving your mind into a hole,
Filled with spite and tension,
You give me nothing but deception,
What's more to say, there's not much more,
Could it be just like before?

Why did I bother?
Shouldn't have bothered,
I was blinded like a fool,
Thinking that those lies were true,
Why did I bother?
Shouldn't have bothered,
Only fate can make me see...
Stay the hell away from me

Now you can't spend all of your time,
With dirty water on your mind,
Can't see through unless it's blue,
The bottom of dirty water,
You're like the devil in disguise,
Double faced and telling lies,
Can't see through unless it's blue,
The bottom of dirty water,

Now you can't spend all of your time,
With dirty water on your mind,
Can't see through unless it's blue,
The bottom of dirty water,
You're like the devil in disguise,
Double faced and telling lies,
Can't see through unless it's blue,
The bottom of dirty water,

(Spoken):
That's the end of your game
And it's always the same
It comes to stop and we float to the top
Two channels
Of dirty water

On your mind,
Dirty water,
All the time,
Dirty water,
On your mind,
Dirty water,
All the time,
Dirty water

Now you can't spend all of your time,
With dirty water on your mind,
Can't see through unless it's blue,
The bottom of dirty water,
You're like the devil in disguise,
Double faced and telling lies,
Can't see through unless it's blue,
The bottom of dirty water

Elliott Smith, waltz (#2)

First the mic then a half cigarette
Singing 'Cathy's Clown'
That's the man she's married to now
That's the girl that he takes around town

She appears composed, so she is, I suppose
Who can really tell?
She shows no emotion at all
Stares into space like a dead china doll

I'm never gonna know you now
But I'm gonna love you anyhow

Now she's done and they're calling someone
Such a familiar name
I'm so glad that my memory's remote
Cause I'm doing just fine hour to hour, note to note

Here it is, the revenge to the tune
"You're no good,
You're no good you're no good you're no good"
Can't you tell that it's well understood

I'm never gonna know you now
But I'm gonna love you anyhow

I'm here today and expected to stay on and on and on
I'm tired
I'm tired

Looking out on the substitute scene
Still going strong
XO, Mom
It's ok, it's alright, nothing's wrong

Tell Mr. Man with impossible plans to just leave me alone
In the place where I make no mistakes
In the place where I have what it takes

I'm never gonna know you now
But I'm gonna love you anyhow
I'm never gonna know you now
But I'm gonna love you anyhow
I'm never gonna know you now
But I'm gonna love you anyhow

As some of you me know, I am an avid Deep Purple fan. This is because of their music and not because of meaningful lyrics. In fact DP make a lot of songs with deliberate stupid lyrics. Here's some proof of that, it's also their biggest hit single:

Deep Purple - Black Night

Black night is not right
I don't feel so bright
I don't care to sit tight
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
That I'm free, free to be me
Black night is a long way from home

I don't need a dark tree
I don't want a rough sea
I can't feel, I can't see
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
That I'm free, free to be me
Black night is a long way from home

Black night, black night
I don't need black night
I can't see dark light
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
That I'm free, free to be me
Black night is a long way from home

They were all drunk when they wrotethis, hence the line "I don't feel so bright"! :)

Yo La Tengo, my little corner of the world

Come along with me to my little corner of the world
Dream a little dream in my little corner of the world
You'll soon forget that there's any other place
Tonight, my love, we'll share a sweet embrace

And if you care to stay in my little corner of the world
We could hide away in my little corner of the world
I always knew that I'd find someone like you
So welcome to my little corner of the world

from Shrek 2:

Accidentally In Love - Counting Crows

So she said, "What's the problem, baby?"
What's the problem I don't know
Well, maybe I'm in love (love)
Think about it everytime
I think about it
Can't stop thinking about it

How much longer will it take to cure this?
Just to cure it cause I can't ignore it if its love (love)
Makes me wanna turn around and face me
But I don't know nothing about love

Come on, come on
Turn a little faster
Come on, come on
The world will follow after
Come on, come on
Cause everybody's after love

So I said I'm a snowball running
Running down into the spring that's coming all this love
Melting under blue skies
Belting out sunlight
Shimmering love

Well baby I surrender
To the strawberry ice cream
Never ever end of all this love
Well I didn't mean to do it
But there's no escaping your love

These lines of lightning
Mean we're never alone,
Never alone, no, no

Come on, Come on
Move a little closer
Come on, Come on
I want to hear you whisper
Come on, Come on
Settle down inside my love
Come on, come on
Jump a little higher
Come on, come on
If you feel a little lighter
Come on, come on
We were once
Upon a time in love
We're accidentally in love
Accidentally in love (x7)
Accidentally
I'm In Love, I'm in Love,
I'm in Love, I'm in Love,
I'm in Love, I'm in Love,
Accidentally (X 2)
Come on, come on
Spin a little tighter
Come on, come on
And the world's a little brighter
Come on, come on
Just get yourself inside her
Love ...I'm in love

The Shins, new slang

Gold teeth and a curse for this town were all in my mouth.
Only, i don't know how they got out, dear.
Turn me back into the pet that i was when we met.
I was happier then with no mind-set.

And if you'd 'a took to me like
A gull takes to the wind.
Well, i'd 'a jumped from my tree
And i'd a danced like the king of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would 'a fared well.

New slang when you notice the stripes, the dirt in your fries.
Hope it's right when you die, old and bony.
Dawn breaks like a bull through the hall,
Never should have called
But my head's to the wall and i'm lonely.

And if you'd 'a took to me like
A gull takes to the wind.
Well, i'd 'a jumped from my tree
And i'd a danced like the kind of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would 'a fared well.

God speed all the bakers at dawn may they all cut their thumbs,
And bleed into their buns 'till they melt away.

I'm looking in on the good life i might be doomed never to find.
Without a trust or flaming fields am i too dumb to refine?
And if you'd 'a took to me like
Well i'd a danced like the queen of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would 'a fared well.

Save Your Kisses For Me :hearts:
Natasha Thomas


Save your kisses for me
show me how you miss me
all so easily
my lovin
save your kisses for me
cos I don't wanna be
A summer love thing

The way of your touch is always heavenly
and I love the way that you're loving me
You wrapped me up in the color of your love
you must be an angel high from above

How can I be sure that you won't go and what will be

Chorus

Are you gonna be there when I need someone
and will I be always just the only one
I don't wanna have just another heartbreak
So tell me is your love true or a fake

Bridge

Chorus

Middle:
One kiss, one love, one word
one vow and nothing more
One night, one dream, gonna save it save it for me

I like this one from the new commercial of Lacoste! it's cute and also the commercial is really cute! :) hehe

It's over now - Natasha Thomas

What kind of love have you got
You should be home but you're not
I don't wanna believe that it's over now
I could be wrong but I'm not
And you still think you're on heart
I dont wanna believe that it's over now

Can you tell me a secret
Then I'll tell you mine
Show me that you still love me
Then I will show real love
Uh baby

Refrain

You are walking the wire
Looking for a loving between
But you don't have desire
Do you know what I mean
Uh baby

Refrain

It's over now

Wake up you loose my loving
Wake up we're used to thinking
Think twice about the things
That you have said and done

Wake up you loose my loving
Wake up we're used to thinking
Think twice about the things
That you have said and done

Refrain

It's over now

Let's go for it
Let's go for it? Alright why don't you take the first verse
O.K
Here we go

Yes I see you cryin'
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)
And I feel your broken heart
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)

Still you chose to play the part
If you let me be
(If you let me be)
I'll be all you need, all you need

I wanna be the only one to hold you
(Protect you from the rain)
I wanna be the only one to soothe you
(Erase all the pain)
I wanna be the only one to love you, love you
(Over again)
I wanna be the only one, the only one
(The only one I am)

Now you deserve a mansion

If you just love me
You will gladly see
I'm all you need

I wanna be the only one to hold you
(Protect you from the rain)

Ebonique - Heatwave

Heatwave (Philip Vella/ Gérard James Borg)


There’s a heatwave hitting town
Feel the heatwave falling down, down, down
The passion of me and you
That burns deep inside me too
Sun is burning with all its might
Seems the city is full of light
Sea is sparkling a velvet blue
It’s a mirror for me and you, mmmhh

Sizzling fire that hits your heart
Just in time when summer starts
It’s a feeling you can’t hide
Wish you had me, by your side

There’s a heatwave hitting town
Feel the heatwave falling down, down, down
The passion of me and you
That burns deep inside me too

I’m the heatwave in your dawn
Like a heatwave I turn you on
The passion of me and you
That burns deep inside me too, yeaheah

Waves are crushing on white sands
As this heat gets out of hand
Let the water take control
Of your mind, body and soul

Pray for rain to calm the storm
When attraction takes its toll
Like a blaze I light your night
Move on closer, hold me tight

There’s a heatwave hitting town
Feel the heatwave falling down, down, down
The passion of me and you
That burns deep inside me too

Let’s dance in the heat of the sun
I’m ready for the good times
Move to the rhythm we love (we love)
With some intensity, yeaheah

One kiss opens all of my doors
Sounds like a metaphor
I don’t have to say no more

There’s a heatwave hitting town
Feel the heatwave falling down, down, down
The passion of me and you (heyhey heyhey)
That burns deep inside me too (that burns deep inside me too)

I’m the heatwave in your dawn (heatwave in your dawn)
Like a heatwave I turn you on (let me turn you on, now baby)
The passion of me and you
That burns deep inside me too (that burns deep inside me.......)

There’s a heatwave hitting town
Feel the heatwave falling down
The passion of me and you (for me and you, yeaheah)
That burns deep inside me too

Precious - Rewind

My love I know I was wrong
Thought I'll let go to move on
Then theres just one thing that I must do
Need to prove to you again
You're still the one till the end
Erase this heartbreak I've been going through
Let me show you
Everything that could be
All the love thats in me
When we're again, oh my baby
I can't deny
Just what you mean to me
Words can't describe, its all in my heart
The more I try
To live individually
Something tells me, take it back in time
Take it back in time
Rewind
This symphony of you and me
Keeps on longing to be
Those memories they circle through my mind
I guess some things are destiny
Now I finally see
The one true thing I need is you inside
Let me show you
Exactly how it could be
Something that it should be
When we're again, oh my baby
I can't deny
Just what you mean to me
Words can't describe, its all in my heart
The more I try
To live individually
Something tells me, take it back in time
Take it back in time
Rewind
The more I try, the more I find
All we had you and me
Now I long to right this wrong
And be with you again

Billie Piper - Something deep inside

The first time that it crossed my mind,
I kept on pushing it aside.
It's such a strong emotion.


Second time it's plain to see,
This feeling rushing over me
Oh yeah.....


And unknown to me
This chemistry is....


Something deep inside
I can feel but I can't touch
Can never get too much
I hear you loud and clear
I've got nothing to fear
Your love will be my guide
I've never been this satisfied
It's something deep inside


The third time was just as sweet,
Boy you make my life complete,
Every thought and motion.
It's hard just telling you,
But everything I feel is true.
Oh yeah....


And unknown to me
This chemistry is....


You do the thing that make me feel this way,
It's so hard to find the right thing to say,
But follow emotion the love and devotion,
You'll find....

We get it on most every night
When that moon is big and bright
It’s a supernatural delight
Everybody’s dancing in the moonlight

Everybody here is out of sight
They don’t bark and they don’t bite
They keep things loose they keep it tight
Everybody’s dancing in the moonlight

Dancing in the moonlight
Everybody’s feeling warm and bright
It’s such a fine and natural sight
Everybody’s dancing in the moonlight

We like our fun and we never fight
You can’t dance and stay uptight
It’s a supernatural delight
Everybody was dancing in the moonlight

Dancing in the moonlight
Everybody’s feeling warm and bright
It’s such a fine and natural sight
Everybody’s dancing in the moonlight

We get it on most every night
And when that moon is big and bright

Honeyz - End of the Line

All alone I wait for you,
As darkness fills this room,
I don’t know why you ain’t called.
Little things you used to do,
They’re no longer part of you,
Seems you left them all behind.
Well, I can’t believe what I’m going through,
This thing, it just ain’t right.
Your selfish ways,
How you carry on,
Some things you just can’t hide.

(if you want me to go)
Then say it,
(want me to stay)
Then show it,
(don’t be afraid, ooh)
Oh don’t break this heart of mine,
Now’s the time if I’m right,
Then we’ve come to the end of the line.

So say it
(want me to stay)
Then show it
(don’t be afraid)
Oh, don’t break this heart of mine
Now’s the time, if I’m right
Then we’ve come to the end of the line
Ohh, oh yeah.

Seems like I can’t do you right,
All I do or say is wrong,
All the smallest things criticised.
I deserve some damn respect,
Nothing more and nothing less,
Don’t pretend everything’s fine.
(ooh) don’t hold it back,
If it’s in your heart,
Stand up and be a man,
(ooh) can’t read your mind,
So I’ll just say it loud,
I’m trying to understand.

(if you want me to go)
Then say it,
(want me to stay)
Then show it,
(don’t be afraid, ooh)
Oh don’t break this heart of mine,
Now’s the time if I’m right,
Then we’ve come to the end of the line.

So say it
(want me to stay)
Then show it
(don’t be afraid)
Oh, don’t break this heart of mine
Now’s the time, if I’m right
Then we’ve come to the end of the line.

Even though you’ve doing me wrong
I still care,
Do you think that by treating me cruel
That somehow I’ll disappear?
(ooh) baby I love you too much just to walk away.
(ooh) don’t make me hate you,
Baby you’ve got to be straight (aah).

(if you want me to go)
Then say it
(want me to stay)
Don’t be afraid, baby, show it
(don’t be afraid)
Don’t be afraid, oh, don’t break this heart of mine
Now’s the time, if I’m right
Then we’ve come to the end of the line
Ooh
(want me to stay)
Oh baby, show it
(don’t be afraid)
Don’t be afraid, oh, don’t break this heart of mine
Now’s the time, if I’m right
Then we’ve come to the end of the line

Ooh
We’ve come to the end of the line

Oh, baby
We’ve come to the end of the line

Ohh, ahh

Oh, the end of the line

Savage Garden - Two beds and a coffee machine

And she takes another step
Slowly she opens the door
Check that he is sleeping
Pick up all the broken glass
And furniture on the floor
Been up half the night screaming
Now it’s time to get away
Pack up the kids in the car
Another bruise to try and hide
Another alibi to write

Another ditch in the road
You keep moving
Another stop sign
You keep moving on
And the years go by so fast
Wonder how I ever made it through

And there are children to think of
Baby’s asleep in the back seat
Wonder how they’ll ever make it
Through this living nightmare
But the mind is an amazing thing
Full of candy dreams and new toys
And another cheap hotel
Two beds and a coffee machine
But there are groceries to buy
And she knows she’ll have to go home

Another ditch in the road
You keep moving
Another stop sign
You keep moving on
And the years go by so fast
Wonder how I ever made it through

Another bruise to try and hide
Another alibi to write
Another lonely highway in the black of night
There’s hope in the darkness
I know you’re gonna make it

Another ditch in the road
Keep moving
Another stop sign
You keep moving on
And the years go by so fast
Silent fortress built to last
Wonder how I ever made it

Les Enfoirés - Les Restos du Coeur

Moi, je file un rancard
A ceux qui n'ont plus rien
Sans idéologie, discours ou baratin
On vous promettra pas
Les toujours du grand soir
Mais juste pour l'hiver
A manger et à boire
A tous les recalés de l'âge et du chômage
Les privés du gâteau, les exclus du partage
Si nous pensons à vous, c'est en fait égoïste
Demain, nos noms, peut-être grossiront la liste

Aujourd'hui, on n'a plus le droit
Ni d'avoir faim, ni d'avoir froid
Dépassé le chacun pour soi
Quand je pense à toi, je pense à moi
Je te promets pas le grand soir
Mais juste à manger et à boire
Un peu de pain et de chaleur
Dans les restos, les restos du coeur

Autrefois on gardait toujours une place à table
Une soupe, une chaise, un coin dans l'étable
Aujourd'hui nos paupières et nos portes sont closes
Les autres sont toujours, toujours en overdose

J'ai pas mauvaise conscience
Ça m'empêche pas d'dormir
Mais pour tout dire, ça gâche un peu le goût d'mes plaisirs
C'est pas vraiment ma faute si y'en a qui ont faim
Mais ça le deviendrait, si on n'y change rien

J'ai pas de solution pour te changer la vie
Mais si je peux t'aider quelques heures, allons-y
Y a bien d'autres misères, trop pour un inventaire
Mais ça se passe ici, ici et aujourd'hui

New Radicals - You get what you give

Wake up kids
We've got the dreamers disease
Age 14 we got you down on your knees
So polite, you're busy still saying please
Fri - enemies, who when you're down ain't your friend
Every night we smash their Mercedes - Benz
First we run and then we laugh till we cry
But when the night is falling
And you cannot find the light
If you feel your dream is dying
Hold tight
You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget you only get what you give
Four a. m. we ran a miracle mile
Were flat broke but hey we do it in style
The bad rich
God's flying in for your trial

This whole damn world can fall apart
You'll be ok follow your heart
You're in harms way
I'm right behind
Now say youre mine

Fly high
What's real can't die
You only get what you give
Just dont be afraid to leave
Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion mag shoots
With the aid of 8 dust brothers Beck, Hanson
Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in!
Don't let go
One dance left

{unsaid lyrics from liner}
Championed by a soulless media misleading
People unaware they're bleeding
No one with a brain is believing
It's so sad you lost the meaning
Never knew it anyway
Human natures so predictable
I'm a fool to do your dirty work whoa, whoa

Mis-teeq - One night stand

Job done, wanna have fun
Gonna call my girls gonna get my hair done
So I dress tight, with my heels high
And I think about the moves I'm a pull tonight
When I roll up, out front
Guys looking over like they want some
Make way, sexy
For me and my ladies

Hear the sound of the DJ playing our jam
Glass down, grab a man
Move to the floor, it's time to get down
Ding ding, first round
Hand on my hips as we start to dip
Close range, full clip
Temptation, sensations, vibrations
My one night stand

Act wild but I got style
'Cos I ain't sipping if it ain't crystal
High class, nice ass
Spend your money but I got my own cash
Good vibes, so right
Thank you for the dance tonight
Feel free, baby
Keep looking 'cos you can't have me

Hear the sound of the DJ playing our jam
Glass down, grab a man
Move to the floor, it's time to get down
Ding ding, first round
Hand on my hips as we start to dip
Close range, full clip
Temptation, sensations, vibrations
My one night stand

Hey y'all get up get up it's a one night stand
Here I come again with my rhyming slang
I said ride to the rhythm as I flip this sound
Flip this sound we're gonna move around

Mis-Teeq we're coming back again
Love of the music inside your membrane
Yo, I'm gonna burn you with my lyrical flame
Start the game
Come follow me it's time to play

Now don't you get the wrong impression
It's just a dance
I'm with my girlfriends hanging out
To mislead you wasn't my intention
Nothing more to say

Hear the sound of the DJ playing our jam
Glass down, grab a man
Move to the floor, it's time to get down
Ding ding, first round

Hear the sound of the DJ playing our jam
Glass down, grab a man
Move to the floor, it's time to get down
Ding ding, first round
Hand on my hips as we start to dip
Close range, full clip
Temptation, sensations, vibrations
My one night stand

Hear the sound of the DJ playing our jam
Glass down, grab a man
Move to the floor, it's time to get down
Ding ding, first round
Hand on my hips as we start to dip
Close range, full clip
Temptation, sensations, vibrations
My one night stand

The Artful Dodger ft. Robbie Craig & Craig David - Woman Trouble

Bubblin' from the left
Yes, we're bubblin' from the right
Craig David and Robbie Craig, bubblin' all night
Bubblin' from the left (woman trouble)
Yes, we're bubblin' from the right
(woman trouble)
Craig David and Robbie Craig, bubblin' all night
(woman trouble)
This is how we do
(Woman trouble)
(Woman trouble)
(Woman trouble)
(Woman trouble)
(Woman trouble)
(Woman trouble)

I feel fantastic, bombastic, ecstatically astounded
How a girl can really lose her brain
I feel surrounded, confounded, emotionally dumbfounded
To think you've nearly won your game, oh yeah

You said that I have been gone too long
Don't try to tell me that I was wrong (re-remix)
You're totally wrong for me
God, the hurt in my face
Now I know the only thing to do
Is to give myself some space
I bet she never told you everything that drifted through her mind
All the secret thoughts
Well, I bet you never caught her sliding with another man
Such as I did, no, no
I hate to see the way the finger points at me
I'm at fault, I don't think so
After all is said and done, girl
You know you had your fun
Why don't you leave it there

I feel fantastic, bombastic, ecstatically astounded
How a girl can really lose her brain
I feel surrounded, confounded, emotionally dumbfounded
To think you've nearly won your game, oh yeah

You said you had a girl with problems, tell me
Did it lead to heartache and confusion (re-remix)
Did you wake up in tears not knowing where you are
Did you get it in the ear like I did, like I did

You said that I have been gone too long
Don't try to tell me that I was wrong (re-remix)
You're totally wrong for me
God, the hurt in my face
Now I know the only thing to do
Is to give myself some space
I bet she never told you everything that drifted through her mind
All the secret thoughts
Well, I bet you never caught her sliding with another man
Such as I did, no, no
I hate to see the way the finger points at me
I'm at fault, I don't think so
After all is said and done, girl
You know you had your fun
Why don't you leave it there

I feel fantastic, bombastic, ecstatically astounded
How a girl can really lose her brain
I feel surrounded, confounded, emotionally dumbfounded
To think you've nearly won your game, oh yeah

I feel fantastic, bombastic, ecstatically astounded

Aretha Franklin - Chain of Fools

Chain chain chain
(Chain chain chain)
Chain chain chain
(Chain chain chain)
Chain chain chain
(Chain chain chain)
Chain of fools

For five long years
I thought you were my man
But I found out
I'm just a link in your chain, oh

You got me where you want me
I ain't nothing but your fool
You treated me mean
Oh, you treated me cruel

Chain chain chain
(Chain chain chain)
Chain of fools

Every chain has got a weak link
I might be weak, child
But I'll give you strength, oh babe

You told me to leave you alone
My father said come on home
My doctor said take it easy
Whole bunch of loving is much too strong
I'm added to your

Chain chain chain
(Chain chain chain)
Chain chain chain
(Chain chain chain)
Chain chain chain
(Chain chain chain)
Chain of fools

Oh, one of these mornings
The chain is gonna break
But up until then, yeah
I'm gonna take all I can take

Chain chain chain
(Chain chain chain)
Chain chain chain
(Chain chain chain)
Chain chain chain
(Chain chain chain)
Chain of fools

My favorite French chanson! ;)

Edith Piaf - Je ne regrette rien

Non, rien de rien
Non, je ne regrette rien
Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait
Ni le mal, tout ça m'est bien égal

Non, rien de rien
Non, je ne regrette rien
C'est payé, balayé, oublié
Je me fous du passé

Avec mes souvenirs
J'ai allumé le feu
Mes chagrins, mes plaisirs
Je n'ai plus besoin d'eux

Balayé les amours
Et tous leurs trémolos
Balayé pour toujours
Je repars à zéro

Non, rien de rien
Non, je ne regrette rien
Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait
Ni le mal, tout ça m'est bien égal

Non, rien de rien
Non, je ne regrette rien
Car ma vie, car me joies
Aujourd'hui, ça commence avec toi

French chansons! Good idea, Escada!
Here's my favourite:

Jacques Brel - Ne me quitte pas

Ne me quitte pas
Il faut oublier
Tout peut s'oublier
Qui s'enfuit déjà
Oublier le temps
Des malentendus
Et le temps perdu
A savoir comment
Oublier ces heures
Qui tuaient parfois
A coups de pourquoi
Le coeur du bonheur
Ne me quitte pas (x4)

Moi, je t'offrirai
Des perles de pluie
Venues de pays
Où il ne pleut pas
Je creuserai la terre
Jusqu'après ma mort
Pour couvrir ton corps
D'or et de lumière
Je ferai un domaine
Où l'amour sera roi
Où l'amour sera loi
Où tu seras reine
Ne me quitte pas (x4)

Ne me quitte pas
Je t'inventerai
Des mots insensés
Que tu comprendras
Je te parlerai
De ces amants là
Qui ont vu deux fois
Leurs coeurs s'embraser
Je te raconterai
L'histoire de ce roi
Mort de n'avoir pas
Pu te rencontrer
Ne me quitte pas (x4)

On a vu souvent
Rejaillir le feu
De l'ancien volcan
Qu'on croyait trop vieux
Il est paraît-il
Des terres brûlées
Donnant plus de blé
Qu'un meilleur avril
Et quand vient le soir
Pour qu'un ciel flamboie
Le rouge et le noir
Ne s'épousent-ils pas
Ne me quitte pas (x4)

Ne me quitte pas
Je ne vais plus pleurer
Je ne vais plus parler
Je me cacherai là
A te regarder
Danser et sourire
Et à t'écouter
Chanter et puis rire
Laisse-moi devenir
L'ombre de ton ombre
L'ombre de ta main
L'ombre de ton chien
Ne me quitte pas (x4)
