"Summer's Almost Gone"- The Doors

Summer's almost gone,

Summer's almost gone,

Almost gone,

Yeah, it's almost gone.

Where will we be

When the summer's gone?

Morning found us calmly unaware,

Noon burn gold into our hair,

At night we swim the laughing sea.

When summer's gone, where will we be?

Where will we be?

Where will we be?

Morning found us calmly unaware,

Noon burn gold into our hair,

At night, we swim the laughing sea.

When summer's gone, where will we be?

Summer's almost gone,

Summer's almost gone.

We had some good times,

But they're gone,

The winter's comin' on,

Summer's almost gone.

:puppyeyes: School starts Monday.

My Old School ~ Steely Dan

I remember the thirty-five sweet goodbyes

When you put me on the wolverine

Up to Annandale

It was still September

When your daddy was quite surprised

To find you with the working girls

In the county jail

I was smoking with the boys upstairs

When I heard about the whole affair

I said oh no

William and Mary won't do

(Chorus):

Well I did not think the girl

Could be so cruel

And I'm never going back

To my old school

Oleanders growing outside her door

Soon they're gonna be in bloom

Up in Annandale

I can't stand her

Doing what she did before

Living like a gypsy queen

In a fairy tale

Well I hear the whistle but I can't go

I'm gonna take her down to Mexico

She said oh no

Guadalajara won't do

Well I did not think the girl

Could be so cruel

And I'm never going back

To my old school

California tumbles into the sea

That'll be the day I go

Back to Annandale

Tried to warn you

About Geno and Daddy G

But I can't seem to get to you

Through the U.S. mail

Well I hear the whistle but I can't go

I'm gonna take her down to Mexico

She said oh no

Guadalajara won't do

Well I did not think the girl

Could be so cruel

And I'm never going back

To my old school

Another Brick in the Wall Part 2 ~ Pink Floyd

Roger Waters

We don't need no education

We dont need no thought control

No dark sarcasm in the classroom

Teachers leave those kids alone

Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!

All in all it's just another brick in the wall.

All in all you're just another brick in the wall.

We don't need no education

We dont need no thought control

No dark sarcasm in the classroom

Teachers leave them kids alone

Hey! Teachers! Leave those kids alone!

All in all it's just another brick in the wall.

All in all you're just another brick in the wall.

'Wrong, Do it again!'

'If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any pudding. How can you

have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat?'

'You! Yes, you behind the bikesheds, stand still laddy!'

When the Stars Go Blue

Ryan Adams

Dancin where the stars go blue

Dancin where the evening fell

Dancin in your wooden shoes

In a wedding gown

Dancin out on 7th street

Dancin through the undergroud

Dancin like a marionette

Are you happy now?

Where do you go when you're lonely

Where do you go when you're blue

Where do you go when you're lonely

I'll follow you

When the stars go blue

Laughing with your pretty mouth

Laughing with your broken eyes

Laughing with your lovers tounge

In a lullaby

Where do you go when you're lonely

Where do you go when you're blue

Where do you go when you're lonely

I'll follow you

When stars go blue

The stars go blue,stars go blue

Right Place Wrong Time ~ Dr John

I been in the Right Place

But it must have been the wrong time

I would have said the right thing

But must have used the wrong line

I'm on the right trip

but I must have used the wrong car

My head's in a bad place

I'm wondering what it's good for

I been in the right place

But it must have been the wrong time

My head was in a place

But I'm having such a good time

I've been running trying to get hung up in my mind

Got to give myself a little talking to this time.

Just need a little brain salad surgery

Got to cure this insecurity

I've been in the wrong place

But it must have been the right time

I been in the right place

But it must have been the wrong song

I've been in the right vein

But it seems to be the wrong arm

I've been in the right world

But it just seems wrong (wrong x4)

Slipping, Dodging, Sneaking, Creeping

Hiding down the street

See my life shaking with everyone who I meet

Re-fried confusion is making itself clear

Wonder which way I go to get on out of here

I been in the right place

But it must have been the wrong time

I'd have said the right thing

But I must have used the wrong line

I'd have took a right road

But I must have took a wrong turn

Would have made the right move

But I made it at the wrong time

I've been on the right road

But I must have used the wrong car

My head was in a good place

And I wonder what it's bad for

Right Here, Right Now - Jesus Jones

A woman on the radio talked about revolution

When its already passed her by

Bob dylan didnt have this to sing about you

You know it feels good to be alive

I was alive and I waited, waited

I was alive and I waited for this

Right here, right now

There is no other place I want to be

Right here, right now

Watching the world wake up from history

I saw the decade in, when it seemed

The world could change at the blink of an eye

And if anything

Then theres your sign... of the times

I was alive and I waited, waited

I was alive and I waited for this

Right here, right now

I was alive and I waited, waited

I was alive and I waited for this

Right here, right now

There is no other place I want to be

Right here, right now

Watching the world wake up from history

Right here, right now

There is no other place I want to be

Right here, right now

Watching the world wake up from history

Right here, right now

There is no other place I want to be

Right here, right now

Watching the world wake up...

Company,

Always on the run.

Destiny,

Is the rising sun.

I was born 6-gun in my hand,

Behind a gun, I make my final stand.

That's why they call me...

Bad company.

And I can't deny,

Bad company, til the day I die, til the day I die, til the day I die...

Rebel souls.

Deserters we are called,

Chose a gun and threw away the sun.

Now these towns, they all know our name.

6-gun sound is our claim to fame.

I can hear them say...

Bad company, and I won't deny.

Bad bad company, til the day I die.

Til the day I die...

Hey hey, bad company, I can't deny...

Bad company, til the day I die.

It's bad company.

Oh yeah yeah.

Bad company, til the day I die.

Tell me you're not a thief, oh but I'm bad company.

It's the way I play.

Dirty for dirty.

Oh somebody double crossed me.

Double cross

Double cross

Yeah, we're bad company

Kill in cold blood...

Isobel ~ Björk

In a forest pitch-dark

Glowed the tiniest spark

It burst into flame

Like me, like me

My name Isobel

Married to myself

My love Isobel

Living by herself

In a heart full of dust

Lives a creature called lust

It surprises and scares

Like me,like me

My name Isobel

Married to myself

My love Isobel

Living by herself

When she does it she means to

Moth delivers her message

Unexplained on your collar

Crawling in silence

A simple excuse

Nana na nana, nana na nana

Nana na nana, nana na nana

In a tower of steel

Nature forges a deal

To raise wonderful hell

Like me, like me

My name Isobel

Married to myself

My love Isobel

Living by herself

When she does it she means to

Moth delivers her message

Unexplained on your collar

Crawling in silence

A simple excuse

Nana na nana, nana na nana X6

The Smiths - PRETTY GIRLS MAKE GRAVES

Upon the sand, upon the bay

"There is a quick and easy way" you say

Before you illustrate

I'd rather state :

"I'm not the man you think I am

I'm not the man you think I am"

And Sorrow's native son

He will not smile for anyone

And Pretty Girls Make Graves

Oh ...

End of the pier, end of the bay

You tug my arm, and say : "Give in to lust,

Give up to lust, oh heaven knows we'll

Soon be dust ... "

Oh, I'm not the man you think I am

I'm not the man you think I am

And Sorrow's native son

He will not rise for anyone

And Pretty Girls Make Graves

Oh really ?

Oh ...

I could have been wild and I could have

Been free

But Nature played this trick on me

She wants it Now

And she will not wait

But she's too rough

And I'm too delicate

Then, on the sand

Another man, he takes her hand

A smile lights up her stupid face

(and well, it would)

I lost my faith in Womanhood

I lost my faith in Womanhood

I lost my faith ...

Oh ...

Hand in glove ...

The sun shines out of our behinds ...

Oh ...

Find the River ~ R.E.M.

Hey now, little speedyhead,

The read on the speedometer says

You have to go to task in the city

Where people drown and people serve

Don't be shy. Your just deserve

Is only just light years to go

Me, my thoughts are flower strewn

Ocean storm, bayberry moon

I have got to leave to find my way

Watch the road and memorize

This life that pass before my eyes

Nothing is going my way

The ocean is the river's goal,

A need to leave the water knows

We're closer now than light years to go

I have got to find the river,

Bergamot and vetiver

Run through my head and fall away

Leave the road and memorize

This life that pass before my eyes

Nothing is going my way

There's no one left to take the lead,

But I tell you and you can see

We're closer now than light years to go

Pick up here and chase the ride

The river empties to the tide

Fall into the ocean

The river to the ocean goes,

A fortune for the undertow

None of this is going my way

There is nothing left to throw

Of ginger, lemon, indigo,

Coriander stem and rows of hay

Strength and courage overrides

The privileged and weary eyes

Of river poet search naivete

Pick up here and chase the ride

The river empties to the tide

All of this is coming your way

Over The Hills And Far Away ~ Led Zeppelin

Hey lady, you got the love I need

Maybe more than enough

Oh darlin, darlin, darlin, walk a while with me

You've got so much, so much, so much

Many have I loved

Many times been bitten

Many times I've gazed along the open road

Many times I've lied

And many times I've listened

Many times I've wondered how much there is to know

Many dreams come true

And some have silver linings

I live for my dream and a pocketful of gold

Mellow is the man

Who knows what he's been missin

Many many men can't see the open road

Many is a word

That only leaves you guessing

Guessin bout a thing you really ought to know, oh

Really oughta know, oh oh

I really oughta know, oh

The Cure - Just Like Heaven Lyrics print version

"Show me how you do that trick

The one that makes me scream" she said

"The one that makes me laugh" she said

And threw her arms around my neck

"Show me how you do it

And I promise you I promise that

I'll run away with you

I'll run away with you"

Spinning on that dizzy edge

I kissed her face and kissed her head

And dreamed of all the different ways I had

To make her glow

"Why are you so far away?" she said

"Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you

That I'm in love with you"

You

Soft and only

You

Lost and lonely

You

Strange as angels

Dancing in the deepest oceans

Twisting in the water

You're just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape

I must have been asleep for days

And moving lips to breathe her name

I opened up my eyes

And found myself alone alone

Alone above a raging sea

That stole the only girl I loved

And drowned her deep inside of me

You

Soft and only

You

Lost and lonely

You

Just like heaven

You Learn - Alanis Morrissette

I recommend getting your heart trampled on to anyone

I recommend walking around naked in your living room

Swallow it down (what a jagged little pill)

It feels so good (swimming in your stomach)

Wait until the dust settles

You live you learn

You love you learn

You cry you learn

You lose you learn

You bleed you learn

You scream you learn

I recommend biting off more then you can chew to anyone

I certainly do

I recommend sticking your foot in your mouth at any time

Feel free

Throw it down (the caution blocks you from the wind)

Hold it up (to the rays)

You wait and see when the smoke clears

You live you learn

You love you learn

You cry you learn

You lose you learn

You bleed you learn

You scream you learn

Wear it out (the way a three-year-old would do)

Melt it down (you're gonna have to eventually anyway)

The fire trucks are coming up around the bend

You live you learn

You love you learn

You cry you learn

You lose you learn

You bleed you learn

You scream you learn

You grieve you learn

You choke you learn

You laugh you learn

You choose you learn

You pray you learn

You ask you learn

You live you learn

Pink Houses - John Mellencamp

Theres a black man with a black cat

Living in a black neighbourhood

He's got an interstate runnin through his front yard

You know, he thinks, he's got it so good

And there's a woman in the kitchen cleanin' up the evening slop

And he looks at her and says: hey darling, I remember when you could stop a clock

Chorus:

Oh but ain't that America for you and me

Ain't that America, something to see baby

Ain't that America, home of the free, yeah

Little pink houses for you and me

Well there's a young man in a t-shirt

Listening to a rock and roll station

He's got greasy hair and a greasy smile

He says: Lord, this must be my destination

'cuz they told me, when I was younger

Boy, you're gonna be president

But just like everyting else, those old crazy dreams

Just kinda came and went

Chorus:

Oh but ain't that America for you and me

Ain't that America we're someting to see baby

Ain't that america, home of the free, yeah

Little pink houses for you and me

Well there's people and more people

What do they know know know

Go to work in some high rise

And vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico

Ohhh yeah

And there's winners, and there's losers

But they ain't no big deal

'cuz the simple man baby pays for the thrills,

The bills and the pills that kill

Chorus:

Oh but ain't that America for you and me

Ain't that America we're someting to see baby

Ain't that America, home of the free

Little pink houses for you and me

Chorus again

No One Knows ~ Queens of the Stone Age

We get some rules to follow

That and this

These and those

No one knows

We get these pills to swallow

How they stick

In your throat

Taste like gold

Oh, what you do to me

No one knows

And I realize you're mine

Indeed a fool am I

And I realize you're mine

Indeed a fool am I

Ahh

I journey through the desert

Of the mind

With no hope

I follow

I drift along the ocean

Dead lifeboats

in the sun

they come undone

Pleasently caving in

I come undone

And I realize you're mine

Indeed a fool am I

And I realize you're mine

Indeed a fool am I

Ahhh

Heaven smiles above me

What a gift here below

But no one knows

The Gift that you give to me

No one knows

Complete Control ~ The Clash

They said "release Remote Control"

But we didn't want it on the label

They said "fly to Amsterdam"

The people laughed, the press went mad

Ooh ooh ooh Someone's really smart

Ooh ooh ooh Complete control - ha! - that's a laugh

On the last tour my mates couldn't get in

I'd open up the back door but they'd get run out again

At every hotel we was met by the law

Come for the party -- come to make sure!

Ooh ooh ooh Have we done something wrong?

Ooh ooh ooh Complete control even over this song!

You're my guitar hero!

They said we'd be artistically free

When we signed that bit of paper

They meant, "Let's make a lotta money!

An' worry about it later."

Ooh ooh ooh I'll never understand

Ooh ooh ooh Complete control - lemme see your other hand!

I don't trust you

Why should you trust me?

Huh?

All over the news spread fast

They're dirty they're filthy

They ain't ever gonna last

This is Joe Public speaking

I'm controlled in the body

I'm controlled in the mind

This is the Punk Rockers

Total C-O-N control (repeat to fade)

Criminal-Fiona Apple

I've been a bad bad girl

I've been careless with a delicate man

And it's a sad sad world

When a girl will break a boy

Just because she can

Don't you tell me to deny it

I've done wrong and I want to

Suffer for my sins

I've come to you 'cause I need

Guidance to be true

And I just don't know where I can begin

What I need is a good defense

'Cause I'm feelin' like a criminal

And I need to be redeemed

To the one I've sinned against

Because he's all I ever knew of love

Heaven help me for the way I am

Save me from these evil deeds

Before I get them done

I know tomorrow brings the consequence

At hand

But I keep livin' this day like

The next will never come

Oh help me but don't tell me

To deny it

I've got to cleanse myself

Of all these lies till I'm good

Enough for him

I've got a lot to lose and I'm

Bettin' high

So I'm beggin' you before it ends

Just tell me where to begin

What I need is a good defense

'Cause I'm feelin' like a criminal

And I need to be redeemed

To the one I've sinned against

Because he's all I ever knew of love

Let me know the way

Before there's hell to pay

Give me room to lay the law and let me go

I've got to make a play

To make my lover stay

So what would an angel say

The devil wants to know

What I need is a good defense

'Cause I'm feelin' like a criminal

And I need to be redeemed

To the one I've sinned against

Because he's all I ever knew of love

What I need is a good defense

'Cause I'm feelin' like a criminal

And I need to be redeemed

To the one I've sinned against

Because he's all I ever knew of love

Jeopardy - Greg Kihn Band

Where were you

When I needed you

Well you could not be found

What can I do

Oh I believed in you

You're running me around

Well you can take it as a warning

Or take it anyway you like

It's the lightning not the thunder

You never know where it's gonna strike

Our love's in jeopardy, baby ooh (2x)

Don't be cute

Don't be funny now

It's later than you think

Oh what's the use

Save your money now

It's hanging on the brink

* Don't let go while I'm hanging on

'Cause I been hanging on so long

It's so hard to be all alone

I know you're not that strong

Our love's in jeopardy, baby oooh (2x)

The Police-Don't Stand So Close To Me

Young teacher, the subject

Of schoolgirl fantasy

She wants him so badly

Knows what she wants to be

Inside her there's longing

This girl's an open page

Book marking - she's so close now

This girl is half his age

Don't stand, don't stand so

Don't stand so close to me

Don't stand, don't stand so

Don't stand so close to me

Her friends are so jealous

You know how bad girls get

Sometimes it's not so easy

To be the teacher's pet

Temptation, frustration

So bad it makes him cry

Wet bus stop, she's waiting

His car is warm and dry

Don't stand, don't stand so

Don't stand so close to me

Don't stand, don't stand so

Don't stand so close to me

Loose talk in the classroom

To hurt they try and try

Strong words in the staff room

The accusations fly

It's no use, he sees her

He starts to shake and cough

Just like the old man in

That book by Nabakov

Don't stand, don't stand so

Don't stand so close to me

Don't stand, don't stand so

Don't stand so close to me

Don't stand, don't stand so

Don't stand so close to me

Reflections ~ Charlie Daniels Band

I remember you back in nineteen-fifty-six

You had all the moves and you knew all the tricks

You left all the ladies in a hell of a fix

When your voice took wings

Then you'd shake around and oh, how'd you sing

Just an old boy from Memphis with a big diamond ring

A country girl's prayer and a city girl's dream;

Hail the king

But it's all right now

Keep on singin' loud

It's all right now

Heaven should be proud

The fifties left town on a crowded dance floor

The sixties came in with a bang and a roar

The world heard a knock it was Janis at the door

They let her in

And when it seemed this whole world was falling apart

The house lights would fall and the music would start

She'd be givin us all a piece of her heart

Once again

But it's all right now

Keep on singin' loud

It's all right now

Heaven should be proud

It was October in St. Louis town

When we heard that the Free Bird had fell to the ground

And we all said a prayer before we went down

To play

And Ronnie, my buddy, above all the rest

I miss you the most and I loved you the best

And now that you're gone I thank God I was blessed

Just to know you

But it's all right now

Keep on singin' loud

It's all right now

Heaven should be proud

DAMIEN RICE--The Blowers Daughter

And so it is

Just like you said it would be

Life goes easy on me

Most of the time

And so it is

The shorter story

No love, no glory

No hero in her sky

I can't take my eyes off of you

I can't take my eyes off you

I can't take my eyes off of you

I can't take my eyes off you

I can't take my eyes off you

I can't take my eyes...

And so it is

Just like you said it should be

We'll both forget the breeze

Most of the time

And so it is

The colder water

The blower's daughter

The pupil in denial

I can't take my eyes off of you

I can't take my eyes off you

I can't take my eyes off of you

I can't take my eyes off you

I can't take my eyes off you

I can't take my eyes...

Did I say that I loathe you?

Did I say that I want to

Leave it all behind?

I can't take my mind off of you

I can't take my mind off you

I can't take my mind off of you

I can't take my mind off you

I can't take my mind off you

I can't take my mind...

My mind...my mind...

'Til I find somebody new

1979 ~ Smashing Pumpkins

Shakedown 1979

Cool kids never have the time

On a live wire right up off the street

You and I should meet

Junebug skipping like a stone

With the headlights pointed at the dawn

We were sure we'd never see an end to it all

And I don't even care to shake these zipper blues

And we don't know

Just where our bones will rest

To dust I guess

Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below

Double cross the vacant and the bored

They're not sure just what we have in store

Morphine city slippin' dues down to see

That we don't even care as restless as we are

We feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts

And poured cement, lamented and assured

To the lights and towns below

Faster than the speed of sound

Faster than we thought we'd go

Beneath the sound of hope

Justine never knew the rules,

Hung down with the freaks and the ghouls

No apologies ever need be made

I know you better than you fake it to see

That we don't even care to shake these zipper blues

And we don't know just where our bones will rest

To dust I guess

Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below

The street heats the urgency of now

As you see there's no one around
