 step off the train
I'm walkin' down your street again
And past your door
But you don't live there anymore
It's years since you've been there
And now you've disappeared somewhere
Like outer space
You've found some better place

And I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you
Oh
(Like the deserts miss the rain)

Could you be dead?
You always were two steps ahead
Of ev'ryone
We'd walk behind while you would run
I look up at your house
And I can almost hear you shout, down to me
Where I always used to be

And I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)

Back on the train
I ask why did I come again
Can I confess
I've been hangin' 'round your old address?
And the years have proved
To offer nothin' since you moved
You're long gone
But I can't move on

And I miss you
Oh-oh (Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you, yeah
(Like the deserts miss the rain) And I miss you

I step off the train
I'm walkin' down your street again
Past your door
I guess you don't live there anymore
It's years since you've been there
And now you've disappeared somewhere
Like outer space
You've found some better place

And I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you, yeah
(Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you, and I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you, yeah
(Like the deserts miss the rain)

Deserts miss the rain
(Like the deserts miss the rain) Like the deserts miss the rain
(Like the deserts miss the rain)

Starman

=======

 

Didn't know what time it was and the lights were low

I leaned back on my radio

Some cat was layin' down some rock 'n' roll 'lotta soul, he said

Then the loud sound did seem to fade

Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase

That weren't no D.J. that was hazy cosmic jive

 

(CHORUS)

There's a starman waiting in the sky

He'd like to come and meet us

But he thinks he'd blow our minds

There's a starman waiting in the sky

He's told us not to blow it

Cause he knows it's all worthwhile

He told me:

Let the children lose it

Let the children use it

Let all the children boogie

 

I had to phone someone so I picked on you

Hey, that's far out so you heard him too!

Switch on the TV we may pick him up on channel two

Look out your window I can see his light

If we can sparkle he may land tonight

Don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright

 

CHORUS (x2)

 

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la (repeat)

Then I Met You - The Proclaimers

Thought that I'd be happy
Going to be so happy
Living life alone and never sharing anything

Thought that I was finished
Thought that I was complete
Thought that I was whole instead of being half of something

Thought that I was growing
Growing older, wiser
Understanding why this world held nothing for my spirit

Thought that I was destined
Destined to be nothing
Destined to be nothing in this world and then I met you.

I met you

Thought that God had failed me
Thought my prayers were useless
Thought that he would never give the chance for me to praise him

Thought the book was written
Thought the game had ended
Thought the song was sung and I could never sing another

Thought my faith was misplaced
Thought my back was broken
Broken by a weight that I was never fit to carry

Thought I knew this city
Thought I knew all about it
And then one night I went to Morningside and you were waiting

I met you

 Dance Without Sleeping
Melissa Etheridge

I don't want to talk about it
I've done enough I think
I don't want to spend more money
Don't want another drink
I would scratch out all the images
If I had the chance
Don't ask me what I'm thinking
Can't you see I only want to dance

Dance without sleeping
Dance without fear
Dance without senses no message I hear
Dance without sleeping
Dance till I'm numb
Dance till I think I can overcome

Walking on the edge of rage and understanding
Between the black and the white
This child is so angry
Alone here tonight
Alarming desperation
Leads me to believe
With all my shields and protection
It's only me I deceive

Dance without sleeping
Dance without fear
Dance without senses no message I hear
Dance without sleeping
Dance till I'm numb
Dance till I think I can overcome

The eyes on a magazine
The voice on the radio
The kiss on the movie screen
This is the story I know
Fathers hold on and they never go
Mothers hold on and they never go
Lovers hold on and they never go
Lovers they come and they never go

Dance without sleeping
Dance without fear
Dance without senses no message I hear
Dance without sleeping
Dance till I'm numb
Dance till I think I can overcome

Dear GB I dedicate a song to you :

Welcome
We love you
We hate you
We love you
We want you
We need you
We wish we were like you
They say you're a saint
You're a whore
You're a sinner
That he had you
He made you
He can't live without you
Would you confess if we asked
That you nurture the urge
To declare that itís time
To settle down
With a man of your own
You want a baby
A family
A piece of security

Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Just shut your mouth

What's your opinion of the dire situation
In our land here
Our guest here
Of course you'll be nice here
How do you feel about God and religion
Are you good people
Bad people
Guess it doesn't matter people
Your place
My place
Make her bring that famous face
You got some
You want some
You wanna let me get you some
We know your music but of course we'd never buy it
Itís too fake man
Right man!
(We don't give a fucking damn)

Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it

I hear you say it
Play it smart girl
Win the game love
Giveíem what they want
What they want to see and you could be a big star
You could go far
Make a landmark
What have you been reading you smart girl?
Win the game love
Giveíem what they want
What they want to see and you could be a big star
You could go far
Make a landmark
Make a shitload

And the world spins by
With everybody moaning
Pissing, bitching and everyone is shitting
On their friends
On their love
On their oaths
On their honor
On their graves
On their mouths
And their words say nothing

Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Just shut your mouth

I wanted to say something
Oh shut your mouth
I wanted to say something
Just shut your mouth
I wanted to say something
Oh shut your mouth
I wanted to be something
Just shut your mouth

Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

Hello.
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone home?

Come on, now.
I hear youíre 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 shipís smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I canít hear what youíre sayiní.
When I was a child I had a fever.
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I got that feeling once again.
I canít explain, you would not understand.
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb.

Ok.
Just a little pinprick. [ping]
Thereíll be no more --aaaaaahhhhh!
But you may feel a little sick.

Can you stand up?
I do believe itís working. good.
Thatíll keep you going for the show.
Come on itís time to go.

There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant shipís smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I canít hear what youíre sayiní.
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.

The Fake Sound of Progress - Lost Prophets


Somebody told me that I always have to bow
if that was true I would have fallen apart by now
The more u think, the less u act their ways
so can u hear this, the fake sound of progress

Never reason with a fool, but is that unkind,
looks like I lost my mind once again
I know it all sounds so contrived, but its got to me
u know I've got to be more than this
don't frown, don't scorn, cus I walk a different street to u
u look so worn, i bet that life is has got you blown
but it will never get to mee
somebody told me that I always have to bow
if that was true I would have fallen apart by now
the more u think, the less u act their ways
so can u hear this, the fake sound of progress
and I feel the way u hold, hold me back from this
chances that I've missed, now their gone
apathy is all I sense, the feelings too intense
sitting on a fence and cant decide
don't frown, don't scorn, cus I walk a different street to u
u look so worn, i bet that life is has got you blown
no body will ever get to me
somebody told me that I always have to bow
if that was true I would have fallen apart by now
the more u think, the less u act their ways
so can u hear this, the fake sound of progress

All these words that I accounted for, never fear another day
always charged but I need more, make me take away
tell me now, can u hear the sound
of all these people falling down
growing back into the ground let me smile again...
smile

Tell me now can u hear the sound, of the record spinning
round and round, for on and on it sounds like the same old
song that I keep singing, it sounds like

dah dah dah dah (yeahyeah sounds like) dah dah dah dah
(all these words that I accounted for, I'll never fear another day)

(improv!!)

somebody told me that I always have to bow
if that was true I would have fallen apart by now
the more u think, the less you act their ways
so can you hear this, the fake sound of progress

yeah yeah yeah progress

make me smile again
(the fake sound of progress)

femme fatale - digable planets

it was 8:49 on a beautiful 9th day of july
there was not a cloud to speak of so the orange sun hung
lonely in the sky
i was laying prone in my ?catbeat? home
listening to fine nappy jackie and his jazzcat's horn
sliding in a tape of bird on verve when suddenly rang my phone
hello butterfly a voice said
slip on some duds comb out your fro and slide on down to my pad
the vibe here is very pleasant and i truly request your presence
a problem of great magnitude has arose
and as we speak it grows
damn, what could it be i thought
a juice i bought and rolled on down to her pad
seeing bros i know slapping fives i arrived and pressed G-5
and there was nikki
lookin some kind of sad with tears fallin from her eyes
she sat me down
and dug my frown and began to run it down
"you remember my boyfriend sid that fly kid who i love
well our love was often a verb and spontaneity has brought a third
but do to our youth an economic state we wish to terminate
about this we don't feel great , but baby that's how it is
but the feds have dissed me
they ignore and dismiss
and the pro-lifers harrass me outside the clinic
and call me a murderer, now that's hate
so needless to say we're in a mental state of debate"
hey beautiful bird i said digging her somber mood
the fascists are some heavy dudes
they don't really give a damn about life
they just don't want a woman to
control her body or have the right to choose
but baby that ain't nothin
they just want a male finger on the button
because if you say war they will send them to die by the score
aborting mission should be your volition
but if souter and thomas have their way
you'll be standing in line unable to get welfare while they're out
hunting and fishing
it has always been around it will always have a niche
but they'll make it a privelege not a right
accessible only to the rich

pro-lifers need to dig themselves
cause life doesn't stop after birth
and to a child borne to the unprepared
it might even just get worse
supporters of the h-bomb and fire bombing clinic
what type of shit is that? orwellian in fact
if roe v wade was overturned would not the desire remain intact
leaving young girls to risk their healths
and doctors to botch and watch as they kill themselves
i don't want to sound macabre
but hey, isn't it my job
to lay it on the masses and get them off their asses
to fight against these fascists
so whatever you decide make that move with pride
sid will be there (ladybug will be there, doodlebug will be there)
and so will i
an insect til i die
rhythms and sounds
spinning around
confrontations
across the nation
your block
my block
dreadlocks
what a shock
land of the free - but not
me
You can shut your vegetable features an all.  >:(

Please can we go away
Get out of here
Somehow today.
For a place that I've heard on the radio
Never sleeps.

I'll get a job in a bar,
You could be a waitress and serve cheap cigars
To fat mustachio men in suits, you'll look cute.

Fuck what they say
Fuck it if they talk
It really dont matter.
We're going to New York.

Oh, hold on to me.
I'm gonna get you out
I'm gonna set you free.
To a place that I've heard on the radio.
Never sleeps.

I'll get a job in a bar,
You could be a waitress and serve cheap cigars
To fat mustachio men in suits, you'll look cute.

Fuck what they say
Fuck it if they talk
It really dont matter.
We're going to New York

I'm so glad I've found this
I'm so glad I did
I'm so glad I've found this
I'm so glad I did

People are fragile things, you should know by now
Be careful what you put them through
People are fragile things, you should know by now
You'll speak when you're spoken to

It breaks when you don't force it
It breaks when you don't try
It breaks if you don't force it
It breaks if you don't try

People are fragile things, you should know by now
Be careful what you put them through
People are fragile things, you should know by now
You'll speak when you're spoken to

With one hand you calm me
With one hand I'm still
With one hand you calm me
With one hand I'm still

People are fragile things, you should know by now
Be careful what you put them through
People are fragile things, you should know by now
You'll speak when you're spoken to

Ahh...

You'll speak when you're spoken to
You'll speak when you're spoken to
He'll speak when he's spoken to
She'll speak when she's spoken to

Loving this song right now....


Radiohead - Creep

When you were here before
Couldnít look you in the eye
Youíre just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
And I wish I was special
Youíre so fuckiní special

But Iím a creep, Iím a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I donít belong here.

I donít care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When Iím not around
Youíre so fuckiní special
I wish I was special

But Iím a creep, Iím a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I donít belong here.

Sheís running out again,
Sheís running out
Sheís run run run running out...

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
Youíre so fuckiní special
I wish I was special...

But Iím a creep, Iím a weirdo,
What the hell am I doing here?
I donít belong here.
I donít belong here.

after seeing fiona a pple last night, this has to be the song of my day....

FIONA APPLE
"Paper Bag"

I was staring at the sky, just looking for a star
To pray on, or wish on, or something like that
I was having a sweet fix of a daydream of a boy
Whose reality I knew, was a hopeless to be had
But then the dove of hope began its downward slope
And I believed for a moment that my chances
Were approaching to be grabbed
But as it came down near, so did a weary tear
I thought it was a bird, but it was just a paper bag
Hunger hurts, and I want him so bad, oh it kills
'Cause I know I'm a mess he don't wanna clean up
I got to fold 'cause these hands are too shaky to hold
Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love
And I went crazy again today, looking for a strand to climb
Looking for a little hope
Baby said he couldn't stay, wouldn't put his lips to mine,
And a fail to kiss is a fail to cope
I said, 'Honey, I don't feel so good, don't feel justified
Come on put a little love here in my void,' he said
'It's all in your head,' and I said, 'So's everything'
But he didn't get it I thought he was a man
But he was just a little boy
Hunger hurts, and I want him so bad, oh it kills
'Cause I know I'm a mess he don't wanna clean up
I got to fold 'cause these hands are too shaky to hold
Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love
Hunger hurts, and I want him so bad, oh it kills
'Cause I know I'm a mess he don't wanna clean up
I got to fold 'cause these hands are too shaky to hold
Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love

Fooling Yourself

(You) never saw the cracks
Funny when youre looking back
You see all the signs were there
(You) just didnt know

Sooner or later then
Probably when the rain comes in
Your gonna ask your self
Where the time goes

[Bridge 1]
I find it hard to leave
Never wanted to deceive you
But the truth is
Dont wanna do this

[Chorus]
(I can) pull the wool over your eyes
(I can) laugh it off and tell you Im fine
(But) something inside me aint right
(And Im) fooling myself all the time

(It) shouldnt really be so hard
Everything aint meant to be
So difficult and
Smothered in stress

Maybe in time youll see
We will never get to breathe
Pure happiness
Inside of this mess

[Bridge 2]
i find it hard to go
Never wanted you to know
But the truth is
Dont wanna do this

I will understand
If you get angry
But it all just faded away
And theres no reason left for me to stay
