Black ~ Pearl Jam

Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay

Were laid spread out before me as her body once did

All five horizons revolved around her soul

As the earth to the sun

Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn

Ooh, and all I taught her was everything

Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore

And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds

Of what was everything

Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black,

tattooed everything...

I take a walk outside

I'm surrounded by some kids at play

I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear?

Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head

I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning

How quick the sun can, drop away

And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass

Of what was everything

All the pictures have all been washed in black,

tattooed everything...

All the love gone bad turned my world to black

Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I will be...

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star

In somebody else's sky,

but why, WHY, whyyyyyyyyy

Can't it be, can't it be mine?

Next we'll have all those kids from the 'Gloved One's' Fan Club back here canvassing. Remember when they infiltrated Songfacts ?

But Tim is a nice guy, so we don't mind. I'll most likely vote for his other nomination though. I didn't know it was 'Memorial Day" weekend in the U.S. until I saw the Indy results. We'll look forward to heaps more nominations 'overnight/day' - wherever you are.

And RonJon - we owe you one from last week. You can have 3, OK. :)

Hair metal much?

18 and Life - Skid Row (1989)

Inspired by a story the songwriters read in the paper about an 18 year old who accidentally shot his friend. He thought the gun wasn't loaded and wound up in prison for life.

"Accidents will happen" they all heard Ricky say

He fired his six-shot to the wind

that child blew a child away.
