I need some Sleep ~ Eels

I need some sleep.

I can’t go on like this.

I try counting sheep,

But there’s one I always miss.

Everyone says I’m getting down too low

Everyone says: "You just gotta let it go"

"You just gotta let it go"

I just gotta let it go

I need some sleep

time to put the old horse down

I’m in too deep

and the wheels keep spinning round

Everyone says I’m getting down too low

Everyone says: "You just gotta let it go"

"You just gotta let it go"

I just gotta let it go

Just gotta let it go

Just gotta let it go

Just gotta let it go

Cut Here ~ The Cure

"So we meet again" and I offer my hand

All dry and English slow

And you look at me and I understand

Yeah it's a look I used to know

"Three long years... and your favourite man...

Is that any way to say hello?"

And you hold me... like you'll never let me go

"Oh c'mon and have a drink with me

Sit down and talk a while..."

"Oh I wish I could... and I will

But now I just don't have the time..."

And over my shoulder as I walk away

I see you give that look goodbye...

I still see that look in your eye...

So dizzy Mr. Busy - too much rush to talk to Billy

All the silly frilly things have to first get done

In a minute - sometime soon - maybe next time - make it June

Until later... doesn't always come

It's so hard to think it ends sometime

And this could be the last

I should really hear you sing again

And I should really watch you dance"

Because it's hard to think

I'll never get another chance

To hold you... to hold you...

But chilly Mr. Dilly - too much rush to talk to Billy

All the tizzy fizzy idiot things must get done

In a second - just hang on - all in good time - won't be long

Until later...

I should've stopped to think - I should've made the time

I could've had that drink - I could've talked a while

I would've done it right - I would've moved us on

But I didn't - now it's all too late

It's over... over

And you're gone..

I miss you I miss you I miss you

I miss you I miss you I miss you so much

But how many times can I walk away and wish "If only..."

But how many times can I talk this way and wish "If only..."

Keep on making the same mistake

Keep on aching the same heartbreak

I wish "If only..."

But "If only...."

Is a wish too late...

Lonely Soul - UNKLE feat. Richard Ashcroft

God knows you're lonely souls

God knows you're lonely souls

God knows you're lonely souls

I believe there's a time and a place

To let your mind drift and get out of this place

I believe there's a day and a place

That we will go to, and I know you wanna share.

There's no secret to living (There's no secret to living)

Just keep on walking

There's no secret to dying (There's no secret to dying)

Just keep on flying.

I'm gonna die in a place that don't know my name

I'm gonna die in a space that don't hold my fame.

God knows you're lonely souls

God knows you're lonely souls.

I believe there's a time when the cord of life

Should be cut, my friends (Cut the cord, my friend)

I believe there's a time when the cord can be cut

And this vision ends (Let this vision end).

But I'm gonna die in a place that don't know my name

And I'm gonna cry in a space that don't hold my fame.

Walking in the cold

Just keep on flying

There'll be a searchlight

On the mountain high

God knows you're lonely souls

God knows you're lonely souls

God knows you're lonely souls

God knows you're lonely souls

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

I'm a lonely soul.

I'm gonna die in a place that don't know my name

I'm gonna die in a place that don't know my name.

God knows you are lonely souls

Lonely souls

Lonely souls

Lonely souls

I'm a lonely soul.

So long, little chapel

Pack up your light

Pack up your light

Say goodbye to the holy water life

If I Could

Regina Belle

*for my gorgeous Peachlette

If I could

I’d protect you from the sadness in your eyes

Give you courage in a world of compromise

Yes, I would

If I could

I would teach you all the things I’ve never learned

And I’d help you cross the bridges that I’ve burned

Yes, I would

If I could

I would try to shield your innocence from time

But the part of life I gave you isn’t mine

I’ll watch you grow, so I can let you go

If I could

I would help you make it through the hungry years

But I know that I can never cry your tears, babe

But I would if I could

If I could

In a time and place where you don’t wanna be

You don’t have to walk along this road with me

My yesterday won’t have to be your way

If I knew

I’d try to change the world I brought you to

Now there isn’t much more that I can do

But I would if I could

If I could

I would try to shield your innocence from time

But that part of life I gave you isn’t mine

I’ll watch you grow, so I can let you go

If I could

I’d help you make it through the hungry years

But I know that I can never cry your tears

But I would if I could

If I could...

First they ignore you - Robbie Williams

Farin's signature made me think of it, why not share ;)

First they ignore you

Then laugh at you, and hate you

Then they fight you

Then you win

When the truth dies

Very bad things happen

They're being heartless again

I know it's gone and there's gonna be violence

(Want you to love me)

I've taken as much as I'm willing to take

(Want you to be)

Why do you think we should suffer in silence

(The heavens above me)

When a heart is broken, there's nothing to break

(Eternally)

You've been mixing with some very heavy faces

The boys have done a bit of bird

They don't kill their own

And they all love their mothers

But you're out of your depth son

Have a word

I know it's gone and there's gonna be violence

(Want you to love me)

I've taken as much as I'm willing to take

(Want you to be)

Why do you think we should suffer in silence

(The heavens above me)

The heart is broken, theres nothing to break

(Eternally)

All is wonderful in past life

Dreaming of the son she wants

You should see me in the afterlife

Picking up the sons of guns

RAP:

When you think we're lost, we're exploring

What you think is worthless, I'm adoring

You don't want the truth, truth is boring

I got this fever, need to

Leave the house

Leave the car

Leave the bad men where they are

I leave a few shells in my gun

And stop me staring at the sun

I know it's gone and there's gonna be violence

(Want you to love me)

I've taken as much as I'm willing to take

(Want you to be)

Why do you say we should suffer in silence

(The heavens above me)

My heart is broken, there's nothing to break

The Shins~ So Says I

An address to the golden door

I was strumming on a stone again

Pulling teeth from the pimps of gore when hatched

A tragic opera in my mind...

And it told of a new design

In which every soul is duty bound

To uphold all the statues of boredom therein lies

The fatal flaw of the red age

Because it was nothing like we'd ever dremt

Our lust for life had gone away with the rent we hated

And because it made no money nobody saved no one's life.

So we burned all our uniforms

And let nature take its course again

And the big ones just eat all the little ones

That sent us back to the drawing board.

In our darkest hours

We have all asked for some

Angel to come

Sprinkle his dust all around

But all our crying voices they can't turn it around

And you've had some crazy conversations of your own.

We've got rules and maps and guns in our backs

But we still can't just behave ourselves

Even if to save our own lives

(So Says I;)

We are a brutal Kind!

Because this is nothing like we'd ever drempt

Tell Sir Thomas More we've got another failed attempt

Because if it makes them money they might just give you life this time

"You're A Big Girl Now" - Bob Dylan

Our conversation was short and sweet

It nearly swept me off-a my feet.

And I'm back in the rain, oh, oh,

And you are on dry land.

You made it there somehow

You're a big girl now.

Bird on the horizon, sittin' on a fence,

He's singin' his song for me at his own expense.

And I'm just like that bird, oh, oh,

Singin' just for you.

I hope that you can hear,

Hear me singin' through these tears.

Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast

Oh, but what a shame if all we've shared can't last.

I can change, I swear, oh, oh,

See what you can do.

I can make it through,

You can make it too.

Love is so simple, to quote a phrase,

You've known it all the time, I'm learnin' it these days.

Oh, I know where I can find you, oh, oh,

In somebody's room.

It's a price I have to pay

You're a big girl all the way.

A change in the weather is known to be extreme

But what's the sense of changing horses in midstream?

I'm going out of my mind, oh, oh,

With a pain that stops and starts

Like a corkscrew to my heart

Ever since we've been apart.

:bow: :puppyeyes:

God Shuffled His Feet ~ Crash Test Dummies

After seven days

He was quite tired, so God said:

"Let there be a day

Just for picnics, with wine and bread"

He gathered up some people he had made

Created Blankets and laid back in the shade

The people sipped their wine

And what with God there, they asked him questions

Like: "do you have to eat

Or get your hair cut in heaven?

And if your eye got poked out in this life

Would it be waiting up in heaven with your wife?"

God shuffled his feet

and glanced around at them

The people cleared their throats

and stared right back at him

So he said: "Once there was a boy

Who woke up with blue hair

To him it was a joy

Until he ran out into the warm air

He thought of how his friends would come to see;

And would they laugh or had he got some strange disease?"

God shuffled his feet

and glanced around at them

The people cleared their throats

and stared right back at him

The people sat waiting

Out on their blankets in the garden

But God said nothing

So someone asked him "I beg your pardon:

I'm not quite clear about what you just spoke-

Was that a parable, or a very subtle joke?"

God shuffled his feet

and glanced around at them

The people cleared their throats

and stared right back at him

Go insane - Fleetwood Mac

Two kinds of people in this world

winners, losers

I lost my power in this world

cause I did not use it

so I go insane

like I always do

and I call your name

she's a lot like you

two kinds of trouble in this world

living, dying

I lost my power in this world

and the rumors are flying

so I go insane

like I always do

and I call your name

she's a lot like you

so I go insane

like I always do

and I call your name

she's a lot like you

What About Now - Daughtry

Shadows fill an empty heart

As love is fading,

From all the things that we are

But are not saying.

Can we see beyond the scars

And make it to the dawn?

Change the colors of the sky.

And open up to

The ways you made me feel alive,

The ways I loved you.

For all the things that never died,

To make it through the night,

Love will find you.

What about now?

What about today?

What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?

What if our love never went away?

What if it's lost behind words we could never find?

Baby, before it's too late,

What about now?

The sun is breaking in your eyes

To start a new day.

This broken heart can still survive

With a touch of your grace.

Shadows fade into the light.

I am by your side,

Where love will find you.

What about now?

What about today?

What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?

What if our love, it never went away?

What if it's lost behind words we could never find?

Baby, before it's too late,

What about now?

Now that we're here,

Now that we've come this far,

Just hold on.

There is nothing to fear,

For I am right beside you.

For all my life,

I am yours.

What about now?

What about today?

What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?

What if our love never went away?

What if it's lost behind words we could never find?

What about now?

What about today?

What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?

What if our love never went away?

What if it's lost behind words we could never find?

Baby, before it's too late,

Baby, before it's too late,

Baby, before it's too late,

What about now?

I normally hate this song, but last night it came on and sort of struck a chord with me.

"Come Sail Away" - Styx

I'm sailing away, set an open course for the virgin sea

I've got to be free, free to face the life that's ahead of me

On board, I'm the captain, so climb aboard

We'll search for tomorrow on every shore

And I'll try, oh Lord, I'll try to carry on

I look to the sea, reflections in the waves spark my memory

Some happy, some sad

I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had

We live happily forever, so the story goes

But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold

But we'll try best that we can to carry on

A gathering of angels appeared above my head

They sang to me this song of hope, and this is what they said

They said come sail away, come sail away

Come sail away with me

Come sail away, come sail away

Come sail away with me

I thought that they were angels, but to my surprise

They climbed aboard their starship and headed for the skies

Singing come sail away, come sail away

Come sail away with me

Come sail away, come sail away

Come sail away with me

Heroes ~ David Bowie

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

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

Whatcha say?

I, I wish you could swim

Like the dolphins

Like dolphins can swim

Though nothing

Will keep us together

We can beat them

For ever and ever

Oh we can be Heroes

Just for one day

I, I can remember

Standing

By the wall

And the guns

Shot above our heads

And we kissed

As though nothing could fall

And the shame

Was on the other side

Oh we can beat them

For ever and ever

Then we can be Heroes

Just for one day

We can be Heroes

We can be Heroes

Corduroy ~ Pearl Jam

The waiting drove me mad...you're finally here and I'm a mess

I take your entrance back...can't let you roam inside my head

I don't want to take what you can give...

I would rather starve than eat your bread...

I would rather run but I can't walk...

Guess I'll lie alone just like before...

I'll take the varmint's path...oh, and I must refuse your test

Push me and I will resist...this behavior's not unique

I don't want to hear from those who know...

They can buy, but can't put on my clothes...

I don't want to limp for them to walk...

Never would have known of me before...

I don't want to be held in your debt...

I'll pay it off in blood, let I be wed...

I'm already cut up and half dead...

I'll end up alone like I began...

Everything has chains...absolutely nothing's changed

Take my hand, not my picture, spilled my tincture

I don't want to take what you can give

I would rather starve than eat your bread

All the things that others want for me

Can't buy what I want because it's free...

Can't buy what I want because it's free...

Can't be what you want because I'm...

Why ain't it s'posed to be just fun

Oh, to live and die, let it be done

I figure I'll be damned

All alone like I began...

It's your move now...

I thought you were a friend,

but I guess I, I guess I hate you...

Heroes ~ David Bowie

:bow:

Planet of New Orleans - Dire Straits

Standin' on the corner

Of Toulouse and Dauphine

Waitin' on Marie-Ondine

I'm tryin' to place a tune

Under a Louisiana moonbeam

On the planet of New Orleans

In a bar they call The Saturn

And in her eyes of green

And somethin' that she said in a dream

Inside of my suit I got my mojo root

And a true love figurine

For the planet of New Orleans

New Orleans - the other planet

With other life upon it

And everythin' that's shakin' in between

If you should ever land upon it

You better know what's on it

The planet of New Orleans

Now I'm tryin' to find my way

Through the rain and the steam

I'm lookin' straight ahead through the screen

And then I heard her say

Somethin' in the Limousine

'Bout takin' a ride across the planet of New Orleans

If she was an ace

And I was just a jack

And the cards were never seen

We could have been the king and queen

But she took me back to her courtyard

Where magnolia perfume screams

Behind the gates and the granite

Of the planet of New Orleans

Random Lyrics is back :)

How Blue can you get - B.B. King

Been downhearted baby

ever since the day we met

I've been downhearted baby

ever since the day we met

Our love is nothin' but the blues

Baby how blue can you get

My love is like a fire

Your love is like a cigaret

My love is like a fire

But baby yours is like a cigaret

I watch you step down on it baby and crush it

Tell me how, tell me how, how blue can you get

You're evil when I'm with you

and you're jealous when we're apart

Yes you're evil when I'm with you baby

Lord have mercy, you're jealous when we're apart

How blue can you get

Hey that's a writing in my heart

I gave you a brand new Ford

and you just said I want a Cadillac

I bought you a ten dollar dinner

You said Thanks for the snack

I let you live in my penthouse

You said it was just a shack

I gave you seven children

and now you wanna give 'em back

I've been downhearted baby

ever since the day we met

Our love is nothin' but the blues

Baby how blue can you get

ca 6 hours ago I was listening to:

Ends ~ Everlast

Sample::Everything must change.

Ends,

some people will rob their mother for the ends,

rats snitch on one another for the ends,

sometimes kids get murdered for the ends,

so before we go any further I want my ends

I knew this cat named Darrell, he didn't have a dollar

He was Harvard material, Ivy League scholar

Had a Ph.D., had an M.B.A.

But now he's waiting tables cause there's rent to pay

Companies downsizing, inflation's rising

Can't find a job, he's feeling kind of stressed

Doesn't even feel the effects when he says

Forgot to count how many times he been blessed

So he falls off track, starts smoking the crack

And once it hits his brain, it starts to chain react

He sells the shirt off his back, shoes off his feet

He's losing all his teeth, now he's out in the street

And all of sudden he's like Jesse James

Trying to stick up kids for their watches and chains

But he's from business school, and he's nervous with the tool

So he ends up on his back in a bloody pool

for the ends

some people will rob their mother for the ends,

rats snitch on one another for the ends,

sometimes kids get murdered for the ends,

so before we go any further I want my ends

I knew this chick named Sally, she had a nice strut

And everywhere that I went, she was up in the cut

Swinging that butt, like race you out here

Only rapped the benz, and rocked the fly gear

Brand name wearing, champagne waving

Jewels around the neck, a life style she's craving

Ain't no saving, she's doing enough spending

If you do the lending, she'll do the bending

Straight machine vending, it's money for take

Shopping sprees get her on her knees

And if you hit her with keys to your crib, you acting funny

Come home one day, find her counting out your money

Wet glans all the way to the Apollo

If you're broke she's spittin, and if you're rich she might swallow

for the ends

some people will rob their mother for the ends,

rats snitch on one another for the ends,

sometimes kids get murdered for the ends,

so before we go any further I want my ends

I knew these two homeboys, that made a lot of noise

Making money on the block, kids was on they jock

They was tougher than leather like Reverend Run

DMZ, they was toting guns

Holdin' weight, goin' out of state

Stackin' mad chips, and pushin' phat whips

Fly jewels and clothes, and got no job

And then one disappeared, and one got robbed

for the ends

Some people will rob their mother for the ends,

Rats snitch on one another for the ends,

sometimes kids get murdered for the ends
