The Lyrics Thread-Part II

All That I Need
ARTIST: BLIND MELON

All that I need is the air that I breathe
And all that I need are things I don’t need
And all that really matters is what matters to me
And who of you are like me

If I was to smile and I held out my hand
If I opened it now would you not understand
Because you know if I’m to benefit I’ll do everything that I can
And who of you are like me

It will make you feel good, over my shoulder
It’ll get me down and got me tied up
'Till I grow older, but feel me inside of you
Like you want it to

But is it just the pains in your head
That are thrilling me
Another life’s falling down onto it’s knees
But I’ll never smile the way, that I did like that day

Everything will be okay
It’ll be okay


More!

ARTIST: TOOL

Choices always were a problem for you.
What you need is someone strong to guide you.
Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow,
what you need is someone strong to use you…
like me,
like me.

If you want to get your soul to heaven,
trust in me .
Don’t judge or question.
You are broken now ,
but faith can heal you.
Just do everything I tell you to do.
Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow.
Let me lay my holy hand upon you.

My Gods will
becomes me.
When he speaks out,
he speaks through me.
He has needs
like I do.
We both want
to rape you.

Jesus Christ, why don’t you come save my life.
Open my eyes and blind me with your light
and your lies.

The Graping Lotus Experience (FILLS IN THE rest of Opiate,edit*)
I had a friend once he took some acid
Now he thinks he’s a fire engine
It’s okay until he pisses on your lighter
Kinda smells kinda cool kinda funny anyway

satan, satan, satan…

I had a friend once he took some ecstasy
Tried to marry me and every one in the room
He was sort of loving kinda caring,
kinda tried to fuck my lazy boy
It got a bit messy all over the curtains,
arm chair covers, throw pillows, and carpeting

satan, satan, satan…

I’m getting bored again…

Where My Heart Will Take Me _ Theme from Enterprise
Lyrics by Diane Warren Vocal by Russell Watson

It´s been a long road, getting from there to here.
It´s been a long time, but my time is finally near.
And I can feel the change in the wind right now. Nothing´s in my way.
And they´re not gonna hold me down no more, no they´re not gonna hold me down.

Cause I´ve got faith of the heart.
I´m going where my heart will take me.
I´ve got faith to believe. I can do anything.
I´ve got strength of the soul. And no one´s gonna bend or break me.
I can reach any star. I´ve got faith, I´ve got faith, faith of the heart.

It´s been a long night. Trying to find my way.
Been through the darkness. Now I finally have my day.
And I will see my dream come alive at last. I will touch the sky.
And they´re not gonna hold me down no more, no they´re not gonna change my mind.

Cause I´ve got faith of the heart.
I´m going where my heart will take me.
I´ve got faith to believe. I can do anything.
I´ve got strength of the soul. And no one´s gonna bend or break me.
I can reach any star. I´ve got faith, faith of the heart.

I´ve known the wind so cold, and seen the darkest days.
But now the winds I feel, are only winds of change.
I´ve been through the fire and I´ve been through the rain.
But I´ll be fine.

Cause I´ve got faith of the heart.
I´m going where my heart will take me.
I´ve got faith to believe. I can do anything.
I´ve got strength of the soul. And no one´s gonna bend or break me.
I can reach any star. I´ve got faith.

I´ve got faith of the heart.
I´m going where my heart will take me.
I´ve got strength of the soul. And no one´s gonna bend or break me.
I can reach any star. I´ve got faith, I´ve got faith, faith of the heart.

It´s been a long road.

[color=blue]Love Is the Seventh Wave
Sting
From the album The Dream of the Blue Turtles
Words and music by Sting

In the empire of the senses
You’re the queen of all you survey
All the cities all the nations
Everything that falls your way
There is a deeper world than this
That you don’t understand
There is a deeper world that this
Tugging at your hand

Every ripple on the ocean
Every leaf on every tree
Every sand dune in the desert
Every power we never see
There is a deeper wave than this
Swelling in the world
There is a deeper wave than this
Listen to me girl

Feel it rising in the cities
Feel it sweeping over land
Over borders, over frontiers
Nothing will its power withstand
There is no deeper wave than this
Listen to me girl

All the bloodshed all the anger
All the weapons all the greed
All the armies all the missiles
All the symbols of your fear
There is a deeper wave than this
Listen to me girl

At the still point of destruction
At the center of the fury
All the angels all the devils
All around us can’t you see
There is a deeper wave than this
Rising in the land
There is a deeper wave than this
Nothing will withstand

I say love is the seventh wave[/color]

DNTel - (This Is) The Dream Of Evan and Chan

it was familiar to me
the smoke too thick to breathe
the tile floors glistened
i slowly stirred my drink
and when you started to sing
you spoke with broken speech
that i could not understand
and then you grabbed me tightly

i wont let go
i wont let go
even if you say so
oh no
i’ve tried and tried with no results
i wont let go
i wont let go

he then played every song from 1993
the crowd applauded as he curtsied bashfully
your eyelashes tickled my neck
with every nervous blink
and it was perfect
until the telephone started
ringing ringing ringing ringing off

Nick Drake - Hazey Jane I

Do you curse where you come from,
Do you swear in the night
Will it mean much to you
If I treat you right.
Do you like what you’re doing,
Would you do it some more
Or will you stop once and wonder
What you’re doing it for.
Hey slow Jane, make sense
Slow, slow, Jane, cross the fence.

Do you feel like a remnant
Of something that’s past
Do you find things are moving
Just a little too fast.
Do you hope to find new ways
Of quenching your thirst,
Do you hope to find new ways
Of doing better than your worst.
Hey slow Jane, let me prove
Slow, slow Jane, we’re on the move.

Do it for you,
Sure that you would do the same for me one day.
So try to be true,
Even if it’s only in your hazey way.

Can you tell if you’re moving
With no mirror to see,
If you’re just riding a new man
Looks a little like me.
Is it all so confusing,
Is it hard to believe
When the winter is coming
Can you sign up and leave.
Hey slow Jane, live your lie
Slow, slow jane, fly on by.

311 - 8:16 AM

Stranger flowers yet
There will never come a day that will ever regret
The hours days years and the minutes
The joy the pain the sunshine and rain in it
The drives on the coast to nowhere
Nothing to say just sit and stare
There’s nothing like the comfort of a silence that’s comfortable
Not talking small just skip the bull
Then I find myself in servility
Didn’t think that was my ability
I go a yard and a mile to make you smile
But then I’m happy see
I got so many ways to make your gaze elliptical
Got a ways to go future’s so
Criptical and I’m glad
Just another many things we’ve had

It’s 8:16 A.M. will you wake up to me
The first thing that you see
My eyes open I’m just hopin’ you feel the same as me
The day starts carefully
On the sidewalk with the dog
You’re right last night I was a hog
Come on I’m sorry
It’s 73 degrees
January easily glides

Stranger flowers still
If you’re gonna wanna go another day I will
Like this make it a deal
Sealed with a kiss
Sealed with a fell of impermanent bliss
Today my love we shall let the world slide
Turn off the ringer and just glide
For we shall never be younger again than
What do you see

It’s 8:16 A.M. will you wake up to me
The first thing that you see
My eyes open I’m just hopin’ you feel the same as me
The day starts carefully
On the sidewalk with the dog
You’re right last night I was a hog
Come on I’m sorry
Holiday on the radio
Billie knows that is the way to go

A place where we both can spend out saved time
Not collecting interest
Maybe the same reason we always find ourselves home bound
I’ve got to do some homework
The leave response we want to leave Wisconsin
For a new life a new trailer with an antenna and a porch
Of course we’ll bring the dog

Man Who Shot Liberty Valance sung by Gene Pitney

When Liberty Valance rode to town the womenfolk would hide, they’d hide
When Liberty Valance walked around the men would step aside
‘cause the point of a gun was the only law that Liberty understood
When it came to shootin’ straight and fast—he was mighty good.

From out of the East a stranger came, a law book in his hand, a man
The kind of a man the West would need to tame a troubled land
‘cause the point of a gun was the only law that Liberty understood
When it came to shootin’ straight and fast—he was mighty good.

Many a man would face his gun and many a man would fall
The man who shot Liberty Valance, he shot Liberty Valance
He was the bravest of them all.

The love of a girl can make a man stay on when he should go, stay on
Just tryin’ to build a peaceful life where love is free to grow
But the point of a gun was the only law that Liberty understood
When the final showdown came at last, a law book was no good.

Alone and afraid she prayed that he’d return that fateful night, aww that night
When nothin’ she said could keep her man from goin’ out to fight

From the moment a girl gets to be full-grown the very first thing she learns
When two men go out to face each other only one retur-r-r-ns

Everyone heard two shots ring out, a shot made Liberty fall
The man who shot Liberty Valance, he shot Liberty Valance
He was the bravest of them all.

The man who shot Liberty Valance, he shot Liberty Valance
He was the bravest of them all.

I was just about to go when I saw I had the devil’s post (666) so I came here to make one more post. :tongue:

The Ballad of Waterhole #3

The code of the west ain’t some words on a page
You just naturally know it when you come of age
You eat when you’re hungry, you drink when you’re dry
You look every man in the eye

It’s the code of the west when the boys talk of women
The code of the west what you know you don’t tell
The code of the west a man soaps his own saddle
Brands his own cattle and some of his neighbour’s as well

If you’re buildin’ fences then I ain’t for hire
You get me for nothin’ and I’ll bring the wire
You patch up my windows, I’ll plumb up your doors
If you scratch my back I’ll scratch yours

It’s the code of the west you must honour your neighbour
The code of the west to your own self be true
The code of the west you must do unto others
Do unto others before them others do it unto you

This is from an old track from the 80’s. I havent heard it since the last time I saw ‘Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure’ (I remember it being in the intro), but oddly enough, I woke up this morning with these lyrics running through my head-

“Like a child in his fantasies
Punching holes in the walls of reality
You can be what want to be
But you can’t change the course of your destiny”

from “I Can’t Break Away” by Big Pig

Merry Christmas Everybody by Slade

Are you hanging up your stocking on your wall?
It’s the time that every Santa has a ball
Does he ride a red nosed reindeer?
Does a ton up on his sleigh
Do the fairies keep him sober for a day?

So here it is merry Christmas, Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now, It’s only just begun

Are you waiting for the family to arrive?
Are you sure you got the room to spare inside?
Does your granny always tell ya’ that the old songs are the best?
Then she’s up and rock ‘n’ rollin’ with the rest

So here it is merry Christmas, Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now, It’s only just begun

What will your daddy do
When he sees your Mama kissin’ Santa Claus?
Ah ah

alt - What will your daddy do
When he sees your Mama givin’ Santa Claus a hug

Are you hanging up a stocking on your wall?
Are you hoping that the snow will start to fall?
Do you ride on down the hillside in a buggy you have made?
When you land upon your head then you’ve been slayed

So here it is merry Christmas, Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now, It’s only just begun

So here it is merry Christmas, Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now, It’s only just begun

So here it is merry Christmas, Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now, It’s only just begun :xmas:

4 little songs

“The Best is Yet to Come” by RIKA MURANAKA
(translation below)
An cuimhin leat an gra cra croi an ghra
Nil anois ach ceol na h-oiche taim siorai i ngra
Leannain le smal
Leannain le smal
Lig leis agus beidh leat
Lig leis agus beidh gra

Culmhne leat an t-am
Nuair a bhi tu sasta
An culmhne leat an t-am
Nuair a bhi tu ag gaire

Ta an saol iontach
ma chreideann tu ann
Tug aghaidi ar an saol is sonas siorai inar measc

Ceard a tharla do na laethanta sin
Ceard a tharla do na h-oicheanta sin
An culmhin leat an t-am
Nuair a bhi tu faol bhron
An cuimhin leat an t-am
Go siorai sileadh na ndeor an ormsa no orainne a bhi an locht

Ag mothu caiite s’ar fan
Cen fath an t-achrann is sileadh na ndeor
Ta ailleacht sa saol
Ma chuardaionn tu e
Ta gliondar sa saol cuardaimis e

Translation

Do you remember the time when little things made you happy
Do you remember the time when simple things made you smile
Life can be wonderful if you let it be
Life can be simple if you try

What happened to those days?
What happened to those nights?
Do you remember the time when little things made you so sad
Do you remember the time when simple things made you cry

Is it just me, or is it just us
Feeling lost in this world?
Why do we have to hurt each other?
Why do we have to shed tears?
Life can be beautiful if you try
Life can be joyful if we try

Tell me I am not alone
Tell me we are not alone in this world fighting against the wind
Do you remember the time when simple things made you happy
Do you remember the time when simple things made you laugh

You know life can be simple
You know life is simple
Because the best thing in life is yet to come
Because the best is yet to come

Whisper - Evanescence

Catch me as I fall
Say you’re here and it’s all over now
Speaking to the atmosphere
No one’s here and I fall into myself
This truth drives me into madness
I know I can stop the pain if i will it all away
If I will it all away

Don’t turn away (Don’t give in to the pain)
Don’t try to hide (Though they’re screaming your name)
Don’t close your eyes (God knows what lies behind them)
Don’t turn out the light (Never sleep never die)

I’m frightened by what I see
But somehow I know that there’s much more to come
Immobilized by my fear
And soon to be blinded by tears
I can stop the pain if i will it all away
If I will it all away

Don’t turn away (Don’t give in to the pain)
Don’t try to hide (Though they’re screaming your name)
Don’t close your eyes (God knows what lies behind them)
Don’t turn out the light (Never sleep never die)

Fallen angels at my feet
Whispered voices at my ear
Death before my eyes
Lying next to me I fear
She beckons me, shall I give in?
Upon my end, shall I begin?
Forsaking all I’ve fallen for
I rise to meet the end

Don’t turn away (Don’t give in to the pain)
Don’t try to hide (Though they’re screaming your name)
Don’t close your eyes (God knows what lies behind them)
Don’t turn out the light (Never sleep never die)

Don’t turn away, yeah
Don’t try to hide
Don’t close your eyes
Don’t turn out the light

Don’t turn away, yeah
Don’t try to hide
Don’t close your eyes
Don’t turn out the light

Servatis A Maleficum.
Servatis A Periculum.

Only You - Flying Pickets

Ba da da da,
Ba da da da,
Ba da da da,

Ba da da da,
Ba da da da,
Ba da da da,
Ba da da da,

Looking from a window above
It’s like a story of love
Can you hear me.
Came back only yesterday
Moving further away
Won’t you hear me.

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
All I ever knew
Only you

Sometimes when I think of your name
And it’s only a game
And I need you
Listening to the words that you say
Getting harder to stay
When I see you

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
All I ever knew
Only you

Ba da,
Ba da da da,
Ba da da da,
Ba da da da,
Ba da da da>

Ba da,

Ba da,

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
All I ever knew
Only you

This is gonna take a long time
And I wonder what’s mine
Can’t take no more
Wonder if you’ll understand
It’s just the touch of your hand
Behind a closed door

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
All I ever knew
Only you

Ba da da da,
Ba da da da,
Ba da da da,

Ba da da da,
Ba da da da,
Ba da da da,
Ba da da da,

Enola Gay - OMD

Enola Gay, you should have stayed at home yesterday
Aha words can’t describe the feeling and the way you lied

These games you play, they’re gonna end it more than tears someday
Aha Enola Gay, it shouldn’t ever have to end this way

It’s 8:15, and that’s the time that it’s always been
We got your message on the radio, conditions normal and you’re coming home

Enola Gay, is mother proud of little boy today
Aha this kiss you give, it’s never ever gonna fade away

Enola Gay, it shouldn’t ever have to end this way
Aha Enola Gay, it shouldn’t fade in our dreams away

It’s 8:15, and that’s the time that it’s always been
We got your message on the radio, conditions normal and you’re coming home

Enola Gay, is mother proud of little boy today
Aha this kiss you give, it’s never ever gonna fade away

If anyone can guess the reasons i posted Enola Gay & Only You i’ll give you a special christmas cookie.

Time/Breathe Reprise
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for soemone or something to show you the way.

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you’re older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to nought or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desparation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over,
Thought I’d something more to say.

I havent shared lyrics in awhile, i’ve been reading alot lately. Here’s some that i actually catch myself signing to myself, almost everyday :grin:

NINE INCH NAILS
“Please”
[b]this is how
it begins
push it away but it all comes back again
all the flesh
all the sin
there was a time when it used to mean just about everything

just like now

breathe, echoing the sound
time starts slowing down
sink until I drown
(please) I don’t ever want to make it stop

and it keeps repeating
will you please complete me?

never be enough
to fill me up

watch the white
turn to red
it fills up the hole but it grows somewhere else instead
all my life
yeah yeah yeah yeah, but it just left me dead
(well guess what?)
the world is over and I realize it was all in my head

now everything is clear
I erase the fear
I can disappear
(please) I don’t ever want to make it stop

you can never leave me
will you pleaseb complete me

never be enough
to fill me up[/b]

NINE INCH NAILS
“The Perfect Drug”

[b]I got my head but my head is unraveling
cant keep control can’t keep track of where it’s traveling
I got my heart but my heart’s no good
you’re the only one that’s understood

I come along but I don’t know where you’re taking me
I shouldn’t go but you’re wrenching dragging shaking me
turn off the sun pull the stars from the sky
the more I give to you the more I die

and I want you

you are the perfect drug
the perfect drug
the perfect drug
the perfect drug

you make me hard when i’m all soft inside
I see the truth when i’m all stupid-eyed
the arrow goes straight through my heart
without you everything just falls apart

my blood just wants to say hello to you
my fear is warm to get inside of you
my soul is so afraid to realize
how every little bit is left of me

take me with you
without you everything just falls apart
it’s not as much fun to pick up the pieces
[/b]

PINK FLOYD
“Echoes”

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

I wish i could write like that one day, luckly i dont, i have Floyd :wink:

Hello Hubbs, I feel in a daft mood…this may amuse you.

Bernard Cribbins Hole in the ground

There I was, a-digging this hole
A hole in the ground, so big and sort of round it was
There was I, digging it deep
It was flat at at the bottom and the sides were steep
When along, comes this bloke in a bowler which he lifted and scratched his head
Well we looked down the hole, poor demented soul and he said

Do you mind if I make a suggestion?

Don’t dig there, dig it elsewhere
Your digging it round and it ought to be square
The shape of it’s wrong, it’s much much too long
And you can’t put hole where a hole don’t belong

I ask, what a liberty eh
Nearly bashed him right in the bowler :grrr:

Well there was I, stood in me hole
Shovelling earth for all I was worth
There was him, standing up there
So grand and official with his nose in the air
So I gave him a look sort of sideways and I leaned on my shovel and sighed

Well I lit me a fag and having took a drag I replied

I just couldn’t bear, to dig it elsewhere
I’m digging it round cos I don’t want it square
And if you disagree it don’t bother me
That ís the place where the holes gonna be :tongue:

Well there we were, discussing this hole
A hole in the groud so big and sort of round
Well it’s not there now, the grounds all flat
And beneath it is the bloke in the bowler hat

And that’s that :wink:

[color=blue]Bernard Cribbins Right Said Fred

Right said Fred, both of us together, one each end and steady as we go
Tried to to shift it, couldn’t even lift it, we was getting nowhere
And so, we, had a cup of tea

Right said Fred, give a shout to Charlie, up comes Charlie from the floor below
After straining, heaving and complaining, we was getting nowhere
And so, we, had a cup of tea

Charlie had a think and he thought we ought, to take off all the handles
And the things that hold the candles, but it did no good, well I never thought it would

Right said Fred, have to take the feet off, to get them feet off wouldn’t take a mo
Took it’s feet off, even with the seat off, should got us somewhere but no
So Fred said let’s have another cup of tea and we said right-o

Right said Fred, have to take the door off, need more space to shift the so and so
Had bad twinges taking off the hinges, and it got us nowhere
And so, we, had a cup of tea

Right said Fred, have to take the wall down, that there wall is gonna have to go
Took the wall down, even with it all down, we was getting nowhere
And so, we, had a cup of tea

Charlie had a think and he said look Fred, I’ve got a sort of feeling
If we remove the ceiling, with a rope or two we can drop the blighter though

Right said Fred, climbing up a ladder, with his crowbar gave a mighty blow
Was he in trouble, half a ton of rubble, landed on the top of his dome
So Charlie and me had another cup of tea and then we went home

I’ll said to Charlie we’ll just have to leave it standing on the landing that’s all
You see the trouble with Fred is he’s too hasty
Now you never get nowhere if you’re too hasty.[/color] :tongue:

Neutral Milk Hotel
In the aeroplane over the sea:

What a beautiful face I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun,
What a beautiful dream that could flash
on the screen in a blink of an eye
and be gone from me soft and sweet
Let me hold it close and keep it here with me.

And one day we will die and our ashes will
fly from the aeroplane over the sea,
But for now we are young let us lay in the sun,
And count every beautiful thing we can see,
Love to be in the arms of all I’m keeping here with me.

What a curious life we have found here tonight,
There is music that sounds from the street,
There are lights in the clouds,
Anna’s ghost all around
Hear her voice as it’s rolling and ringing through me,
Soft and sweet
How the notes all bend and reach above the trees.

Now how I remember you,
How I would push my fingers through your
mouth to make those muscles move
That made your voice so smooth and sweet,
And now we keep where we don’t know
All secrets sleep in winter clothes
With one you loved so long ago now he don’t even know his name.

What a beautiful face I have found in this place
that is circling all round the sun
When we meet on a cloud I’ll be laughing out loud,
I’ll be laughing with everyone I see,
Can’t believe how strange it is to be anything at all.

Built to Spill
Joyride:

Saturday i jotted down some words i cried
all about a girl that i thought i loved
told a sotry of what we did and what went wrong
you’ve heard it all before its the same old shit

So i wont bore you with all the details
im sure that you can listen between the lines
i screwed her and she screwed me, but we never once had sex
all we ever had is too much time

love is just a joyride
drink alot of beer and climb inside
lay your foot down on the gas
leave it there until you crash

this part of the song is called the second verse
soudns just like the first verse but with differnt words
but all it has is three chords and they are A D E and D
thery are A D and E and D
there goes the Dm D A E D

love is just a joyride
drink alot of beer and climb inside
lay your foot down on the gas
leave it there until you crash

(sound FX)
Person gets into car.
Car drives off.
Car crashes.
(/Sound FX)

Love is just a joyride

Muse - Citizen Erased

Break me in, teach us to cheat
And to lie, cover up
What shouldn’t be shared
All the truth’s unwinding
Scraping away at my mind
Please stop asking me to describe you

For one moment
I wish you’d hold your stage
With no feelings at all
Open minded
I’m sure I used to be so free

Self expressed, exhausting for all
To see and to be
What you want and what you need
The truth’s unwinding
Scraping away at my mind
Please stop asking me to describe

For one moment
I wish you’d hold your stage
With no feelings at all
Open minded
I’m sure I used to be so free

Wash me away
Clean your body of me
Erase all the memories
They will only bring us pain
And I’ve seen, all I’ll ever need

Conjure One - Tears from the moon
this song can make me very sad, but still its very nice… :content:

Couldn’t sleep so I went out walking
Thinking about you and hearing us talking
And all the things I should have said
Echo now, inside my head

I feel something falling from the sky
I’m so sad I made the angels cry

Tears from the moon
Fall down like rain
I reach for you
I reach in vain

Tears from the moon, tears from the moon

It just ain’t fair this thing called loving
When one step there and the other feels nothing
I would have done anything for you
I still love you, baby I adore you

All day I keep from falling apart
But at night when the sky gets dark

Tears from the moon
Fall down like rain
I reach for you
I reach in vain

Stop, Stop haunting me
It should be easy
As easy as when you stopped wanting me

Tears from the moon
Fall down like rain
I reach for you
I reach in vain

Tears from the moon
Fall down like rain
but tears from the moon
can’t wash away the pain

Tears from the moon, tears from the moon
Tears from the moon, tears from the moon

Seems fitting to an LD site :cool:

EVANESCENCE

“Imaginary”

i linger in the doorway
of alarm clock screaming monsters calling my name
let me stay
where the wind will whisper to me
where the raindrops as they’re falling tell a story

in my field of paper flowers
and candy clouds of lullaby
i lie inside myself for hours
and watch my purple sky fly over me

don’t say i’m out of touch
with this rampant chaos - your reality
i know well what lies beyond my sleeping refuge
the nightmare i built my own world to escape

in my field of paper flowers
and candy clouds of lullaby
i lie inside myself for hours
and watch my purple sky fly over me

swallowed up in the sound of my screaming
cannot cease for the fear of silent nights
oh how i long for the deep sleep dreaming
the goddess of imaginary light

One of the greatest songs, by the best band in the world.

Hello?
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone home?
Come on, now.
I hear you’re feeling down.
Well I can ease your pain,
Get you on your feet again.
Relax.
I need some information first.
Just the basic facts,
Can you show me where it hurts?
There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ship’s smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re sayin’.
When I was a child I had a fever.
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I got that feeling once again.
I can’t explain, you would not understand.
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb.
Ok.
Just a little pinprick.
There’ll be no more …Aaaaaahhhhh!
But you may feel a little sick.
Can you stand up?
I do believe it’s working. Good.
That’ll keep you going for the show.
Come on it’s time to go.
There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ship’s smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re sayin’.
When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone.
I cannot put my finger on it now.
The child is grown, the dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb.

Russell Watson - Faith of the Heart

It´s been a long road, getting from there to here.
It´s been a long time, but my time is finally near.
And I can feel the change in the wind right now. Nothing´s in my way.
And they´re not gonna hold me down no more, no they´re not gonna hold me down.

Cause I´ve got faith of the heart.
I´m going where my heart will take me.
I´ve got faith to believe. I can do anything.
I´ve got strength of the soul. And no one´s gonna bend or break me.
I can reach any star. I´ve got faith, I´ve got faith, faith of the heart.

It´s been a long night. Trying to find my way.
Been through the darkness. Now I finally have my day.
And I will see my dream come alive at last. I will touch the sky.
And they´re not gonna hold me down no more, no they´re not gonna change my mind.

Cause I´ve got faith of the heart.
I´m going where my heart will take me.
I´ve got faith to believe. I can do anything.
I´ve got strength of the soul. And no one´s gonna bend or break me.
I can reach any star. I´ve got faith, faith of the heart.

I´ve known the wind so cold, and seen the darkest days.
But now the winds I feel, are only winds of change.
I´ve been through the fire and I´ve been through the rain.
But I´ll be fine.

Cause I´ve got faith of the heart.
I´m going where my heart will take me.
I´ve got faith to believe. I can do anything.
I´ve got strength of the soul. And no one´s gonna bend or break me.
I can reach any star. I´ve got faith.

I´ve got faith of the heart.
I´m going where my heart will take me.
I´ve got strength of the soul. And no one´s gonna bend or break me.
I can reach any star. I´ve got faith, I´ve got faith, faith of the heart.

It´s been a long road.

:tongue: Darkmatter I posted the lyrics to Faith of the Heart earlier in the thread. That’s two pieces of music we have in common (the Night will Only Know by Garth Brooks).

I Feel the Earth Move … Written by Carole King

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you’re around

Ooh, baby, when I see your face
Mellow as the month of May
Oh, darling, I can’t stand it
When you look at me that way

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you’re around

Oh, darling, when you’re near me
And you tenderly call my name
I know that my emotions
Are something I just can’t tame
I’ve just got to have you, baby

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, tumbling down
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I just lose control
Down to my very soul
I get a hot and cold all over
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down,
Tumbling down, tumbling down

Suspicious Minds …Elvis
(words & music by mark james)

We’re caught in a trap
I can’t walk out
Because I love you too much baby

Why can’t you see
What you’re doing to me
When you don’t believe a word I say?

We can’t go on together
With suspicious minds
And we can’t build our dreams
On suspicious minds

So, if an old friend I know
Drops by to say hello
Would I still see suspicion in your eyes?

Here we go again
Asking where I’ve been
You can’t see these tears are real
I’m crying

We can’t go on together
With suspicious minds
And we can’t build our dreams
On suspicious minds

Oh let our love survive
Or dry the tears from your eyes
Let’s don’t let a good thing die

When honey, you know
I’ve never lied to you
Mmm yeah, yeah

Charlottedreamer inspired me, im not sure if I posted this song, but its has to be up :tongue:

Blackbird, By The Beatles

[color=blue]Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.

Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise. [/color]

One is never enough, here’s more :wink:

You better you better you bet, by The Who

[color=darkred]I call you on the telephone my voice too rough with cigarettes.
I sometimes think I should just go home but I’m dealing with a memory
that never forgets
I love to hear you say my name especially when you say yes
I got your body right now on my mind and I drunk myself b-lind to the
sound of old T-Rex
To the sound of old T-Rex - who’s next?

[Chorus:]

When I say I love you you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you you say you better
You better you better you bet
You better bet your life
Or love will cut you like a knife

I want those feeble minded axes overthrown
I’m not into your passport picture I just like your nose
You welcome me with open arms and open legs
I know only fools have needs but this one never begs

I don’t really mind how much you love me
A little is really alright
When you say come over and spend the night
Tonight

[Chorus: (as above)]

I lay on the bed with you
We could make some book of records
Your dog keeps licking my nose
And chewing up all those letters
Saying “you better”
You better bet your life

You better love me, all the time now
You better shove me back into line now
You better love me, all the time now
You better shove me back into line now.

I showed up late one night with a neon light for a visa
But knowing I’m so eager to fight can’t make letting me in any easier
I know tha~t I been wearing crazy clothes and I look pretty crappy
Sometime
But my body feels so good and I still sing a razor line everytime.

And when it comes to all night living
I know what I’m giving
I’ve got it all down to a tee
And it’s free.[/color]

My Favourite Beatles Songs

[size 18]HELP The Beatles[/size]

Help, I need somebody,
Help, not just anybody,
Help, you know I need someone, help.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody’s help in any way.
But now these days are gone, I’m not so self assured,
Now I find I’ve changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I’m feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won’t you please, please help me.

And now my life has changed in oh so many ways,
My independence seems to vanish in the haze.
But every now and then I feel so insecure,
I know that I just need you like I’ve never done before.

Help me if you can, I’m feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won’t you please, please help me.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody’s help in any way.
But now these daya are gone, I’m not so self assured,
Now I find I’ve changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I’m feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won’t you please, please help me, help me, help me, oh

[color=blue]Norwegian Wood The Beatles

I once had a girl, or should I say, she once had me.
She showed me her room, isn’t it good, norwegian wood?
She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere,
So I looked around and I noticed there wasn’t a chair.
I sat on a rug, biding my time, drinking her wine.
We talked until two and then she said, “it’s time for bed”.
She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh.
I told her I didn’t and crawled off to sleep in the bath.
And when I awoke I was alone, this bird had flown.
So I lit a fire, isn’t it good, norwegian wood.[/color]

[color=red]Fool on the Hill The Beatles

Day after day alone on the hill,
The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still,
But nobody wants to know him,
They can see that he’s just a fool,
And he never gives an answer,
But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down,
And the eyes in his head,
See the world spinning around.

Well on his way his head in a cloud,
The man of a thousand voices talking perfectly loud
But nobody ever hears him,
Or the sound he appears to make,
And he never seems to notice,
But the fool on the hill . . .
Nobody seems to like him
They can tell what he wants to do.
And he never shows his feelings,
But the fool on the hill . . .[/color]

I think the only Beatles song before Hubbs was posted by Abrickinthewall early in part 1 edit…it was “With or Without You”

And now we a shitload of them! Its time to get back with Dark Lyrics! :happy:

I love this song, i think i have to hear atleast once a day,ok that’s to much, atleast once a week :grin:

A PERFECT CIRCLE
“A Stranger”

[color=blue]Cast the calming apple
Up and over satellites
To draw out the timid wild one
To convince you it’s alright
And I listen for the whisper
Of your sweet insanity while I formulate
Denials of your affect on me

You’re a stranger
So what do I care
You vanish today
Not the first time I hear
All the lies

What am I to do with all this silence
Shy away, shy away phantom
Run away terrified child
Won’t you move away you f*cking tornado
I’m better off without you
Tearing my will down[/color]

This is a song that i like to hear when i have one to many beers, this song is great for the soul :shy:


AEROSMITH - “What It Takes”

[color=indigo]There goes my old girlfriend, there’s another diamond ring
And, uh, all those late night promises I guess they don’t mean a thing
So baby, what’s the story? Did you find another man?
Is it easy to sleep in the bed that we made?
When you don’t look back I guess the feelings start to fade away.
I used to feel your fire
But now it’s cold inside
And you’re back on the street like you didn’t miss a beat, yeah

[Chorus:]
Tell me what it takes to let you go
Tell me how the pain’s supposed to go
Tell me how it is that you can sleep in the night
Without thinking you lost everything that was
good in your life to the toss of the dice?
Tell me what it takes to let you go.

Yeah
Girl, before I met you I was F.I.N.E. Fine
but your love made me a prisoner, yeah my heart’s been doing time
You spent me up like money, then you hung me out to dry
It was easy to keep all your lies in disguise
'Cause you had me in deep with the devil in your eyes

[Chorus]
Guitar!

Tell me that you’re happy that you’re on your own Yeah, yeah, yeah
Tell me that it’s better when you’re all alone
Tell me that your body doesn’t miss my touch
Tell me that my lovin’ didn’t mean that much
Tell me you ain’t dyin’ when you’re cryin’ for me

[Chorus]

Tell me what it takes to let you go
Tell me how the pain’s supposed to go
Tell me how it is that you can sleep in the night
Without thinking you lost everything that was
good in your life to the toss of the dice?
Tell me who’s to blame for thinkin’ twice
No no no no 'cause I don’t wanna burn in paradise
Ooo Let go, let go, let go,
let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go,
let it go, let it go, let it go,
let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go
I don’t wanna burn, I don’t wanna burn [/color]

BACK TO DARKNESS :grin:

PANTERA- 10’s
[color=red]My skin is cold,
Transfusion with somebody
Morose and old,
Drop into fruitless dying

It was tempting and bared,
The whoring angel rising
Now burning prayers,
My silent time of losing

My foes - they can’t destroy my body
Colliding slow, like life itself

Long for the blur,
We cannot dry much longer
Cement to dirt,
Disgusted with my cheapness

My foes - they can’t destroy my body
Colliding slow, like life itself

Reaching down, staring up (at the forgiver)[/color]
