Sarah Harmer - The Weakened State


From the minute you saw it
By the time it left my mouth
I know you wouldn't want it
But I had to have it out
I saw your smile
I felt it
Now I just can't believe
There was no knowing deception underneath

All that time
Did it pass while you were looking back waiting

I asked for the truth everytime
And now the ugly details
Are stuck in my mind
And there's a preminition
I keep putting off
And the more time passes
The more I get soft
I'm standing up there
In a weakened state
And it's not great

All that time
Did it pass while you were looking back waiting
Often I'm waiting on the one
That maybe won't come
Waiting

And I'm not saying anything
You think that I forgot
I'm not saying anything
But I'm thinking a lot

Tom Waits - I'll Be Gone


Tonight I'll shave the mountain
I'll cut the hearts from pharoahs
I pull the road off of the rise
tear the memories from my eyes
and in the morning I'll be gone

I drink a thousand shipwrecks
tonight I'll steal your paychecks
I paint the sheets across my bed
the birds will all fly from my head
and in the morning I'll be gone

take every dream that's breathing
find every boot that's leaving
shoot all the lights in the cafe
and in the morning I'll be gone

I bet thousand dollars
I have a french companion
I tie myself below the deck
I pull the rope around my neck
and in the morning I'll be gone

it takes a life to win her
there is a drum of bourbon
eight hundred pounds of nitro
his boots are thunder as he plays

there is a stone inside it
tonight his bones will ride it
I'll need a tent to hide it
and in the morning I'll be gone
and in the morning I'll be gone
and in the morning I'll be gone

Guzaarish (OST) - Sau Gram Zindagi



Thodi si meethi hai, Zara si mirchi hai
Sau gram zindagi yeh, Sambhaal ke kharchi hai
Asli hai, jhooti hai, Khaalis hai, farzi hai
Sau gram zindagi ye
Sau gram zindagi yeh, Sambhaal ke kharchi hai
Thodi si meethi hai, Zara si mirchi hai

It's a little sweet, a little spicy,

this hundred grams of life, has been spent with care,
it's real, false, pure, fake,
this hundred grams of life,
this hundred grams of life, has been spent with care,
It's a little sweet, a little spicy..

Der tak ubaali hai,

Cup mein daali hai
Kadvi hai naseeb si,
Yeh coffee gaadhi kaali hai
Chammach bhar cheeni ho
Itni si marzi hai
Sau gram zindagi yeh
Sau gram zindagi yeh
Sambhaal ke kharchi hai

It's been boiled for long,
poured into cup..
bitter like fate,
it's black thick coffee,
There be a spoonful of sugar,
That much is the wish,
this hundred grams of life,
this hundred grams of life,
has been spent with care..

Khari hai, khoti hai

Rone ko chhoti hai
Dhaage se khushiyon ko
Silti hai, darzi hai
Sau gram zindagi yeh
Sau gram zindagi yeh
Sambhaal ke kharchi hai
Thodi si meethi hai
Zara si mirchi hai

It's pure, it's bogus,

it's too small to cry,
It stitches happiness
with a thread, it's a tailor,
this hundred grams of life,
this hundred grams of life,
has been spent with care,
It's a little sweet,
a little spicy..

Life is good

Life is wonderful
Life is pain
Oh yeah yeah yeah
Life is good, life is good
Life is wonderful, wonderful
Life is pain
It all part of that game
Life is love
It all good
That's the way, oh yeah yeah yeah
Sau gram zindagi
Sau gram zindagi
Sau gram zindagi
Sau gram....

Green Day - Wake Me Up When September Ends


Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends

like my father's come to pass
seven years has gone so fast
wake me up when September ends

here comes the rain again
falling from the stars
drenched in my pain again
becoming who we are

as my memory rests
but never forgets what I lost
wake me up when September ends

summer has come and passed
the innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends

ring out the bells again
like we did when spring began
wake me up when September ends

here comes the rain again
falling from the stars
drenched in my pain again
becoming who we are

as my memory rests
but never forgets what I lost
wake me up when September ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends

like my father's come to pass
twenty years has gone so fast
wake me up when September ends
wake me up when September ends
wake me up when September ends

India Arie - Video



Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don't
Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won't
Depend on how the wind blows I might even paint my toes
It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul

I'm not the average girl from your video
and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be the india arie

When I look in the mirror and the only one there is me
Every freckle on my face is where it's supposed to be
And I know our creator didn't make no mistakes on me
My feet, my thighs, my lips, my eyes; I'm lovin' what I see

I'm not the average girl from your video
and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be the
india arie

Am I less of a lady if I don't wear pantyhose?
My mama said a lady ain't what she wears but, what she knows
But, I've drawn a conclusion, it's all an illusion, confusion's the name of the
game
A misconception, a vast deception
Something's gotta change
but,Don't be offended this is all my opinion
ain't nothing that I'm sayin law
This is a true confession of a life learned lesson I was sent here to share with
y'all
So get in where you fit in go on and shine
Clear your mind, now's the time
Put your salt on the shelf
Go on and love yourself
'Cuz everything's gonna be all right

I'm not the average girl from your video
and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I Learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be the india arie

Keep your fancy drinks and your expensive minks
I don't need that to have a good time
Keep your expensive car and your caviar
All I need is my guitar
Keep your Kristal and your pistol
I'd rather have a pretty piece of crystal
Don't need your silicone I prefer my own
What God gave me is just fine

I'm not the average girl from your video
and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be india arie

Journey- When You Love A Woman



In my life I see where I've been
I said that I'd never fall again
Within myself I was wrong
My searchin' ain't over...over
I know that...

When you love a woman
You see your world inside her eyes
When you love a woman
You know she's standin' by your side
A joy that lasts forever
There's a band of gold that shines
waiting somewhere...oh yeah

If I can't believe that someone is true
To fall in love is so hard to do
I hope and pray tonight
Somewhere you're thinkin' of me girl
Yes I know...I know that

When you love a woman
You see your world inside her eyes
When you love a woman
You know she's standin' by your side
A joy that lasts forever
There's a band of gold that shines
waiting somewhere...oh

It's enough to make you cry
When you see her walkin' by
And you look into her eyes

When you love a woman
You see your world inside her eyes
When you love a woman
Well you know she's standin' by your side
A joy that lasts forever
There's a band of gold that shines
When you love a woman...
When you love, love, love, love
When you love a woman
You see your world inside her eyes

Robert Plant - Even This Shall Pass Away


Once in Persia reigned a king
Who upon his ruling ring
Etched a caption true and wise

Which if held before his eyes
Gave him counsel at a glance
Fit for every change and chance

Solemn words and these are they
'Even this shall pass away'

Trains of camels through the sand
Brought him gems from Samarcand
Fleets of galleys through the seas
Brought him pearls to rival these

But he counted little gain
Treasures of the mine or main
"What is wealth?" The king would say
"Even this shall pass away"

In the revels of his court
At the zenith of his sport
When the palms of all his guests
Burned with clapping at his jests

Amid his figs and wine
Cried, "Oh, loving friends of mine
Pleasures come but not to stay
Even this shall pass away"

Towering in the public square
Way up high into the air
Rose his statue, carved in stone
Of the skies unknown

Gazing at his sculptured name
Musing meekly, "What is fame?
Fame is but a slow decay
And even this shall pass away

Sick and tired and fading,
Thinish, beat and old
Stood a mile outside the Gates of Gold
Speaking with his dying breath
"Life is done so what is death?"

Then in answer to the king
Fell a sunbeam on his ring
Blinding light through fading gray
'Cause even this shall pass away
Even this shall pass away
Even this shall pass
Even this shall pass away,
away,
away,
away...

Tom Waits - Christmas Card From A Hooker In Minneapolis


Hey Charlie, I'm pregnant and living on 9th Street
Right above a dirty bookstore off Euclid Avenue
And I stopped takin' dope and I quit drinkin' whiskey
And my old man plays the trombone and works out at the track

He says that he loves me, even though it's not his baby
He says that he'll raise him up like he would his own son
And he gave me a ring that was worn by his mother
And he takes me out dancin' every Saturday night

And hey Charlie, I think about you everytime I pass a fillin' station
On account of all the grease you used to wear in your hair
And I still have that record of Little Anthony and the Imperials(2) (3)
But someone stole my record player, now how do you like that?

Hey Charlie, I almost went crazy after Mario got busted
I went back to Omaha to live with my folks
But everyone I used to know was either dead or in prison
So I came back to Minneapolis, this time I think I'm gonna stay

Hey Charlie, I think I'm happy for the first time since my accident
And I wish I had all the money we used to spend on dope
I'd buy me a used car lot and I wouldn't sell any of 'em
I'd just drive a different car every day dependin' on how I feel

Hey Charlie, for chrissakes, if you want to know the truth of it
I don't have a husband, he don't play the trombone
I need to borrow money to pay this lawyer, and Charlie, hey
I'll be eligible for parole come Valentine's day

Michael Learns To Rock - Actor


He takes you out and he
Takes you up
’cause he can show you so much
I go to bed and tomorrow again
There’s a lot of work to be done
He gives you gold and
He’ll promise you
The whole world will be yours
I just can tell you I love you so
Even though my odds are low

I’m not an actor I’m not a star
And I don’t even have my own car
But I’m hoping so much you’ll stay
That you will love me anyway

The dirty games and the
Neonshows
This is the world he knows
Watching the stars satisfies my soul
Thinking of him makes me feel so cold

The fancy cars and the
Restaurants
You’re just so fond of the man
Sometimes I wonder if you are blind
Can’t you see, he’s got dirt on his mind

I’m not an actor I’m not a star
And I don’t even have my own car...

Funny Girl (ost) - If A Girl Isn't Pretty


If a girl isn't pretty
Like a Miss Atlantic City,
All she gets in life
Is pity and a pat.

Mrs. Brice:
Is a nose with deviation
Such a crime against the nation?
Should I throw her into jail
Or drown the cat?

Mrs. Strakosh, O' Malley andMeeker:
She must shine in ev'ry detail
Like a ring you're buying retail,
Be a standard size that
Fits a standard dress.

Mrs. Strakosh:
When a girl's incidentals
Are no bigger than two lentils

Mrs. Strakosh, O' Malley and
Meeker:
Then to me that doesn't spell success...

TRANSLATION


A girl
whose name is love
simple, dainty
a lovely sight
she is lost
lost
lost
she is lost

Her face
A fairy's likeness,
temper
a picture of Mary
when she laughts
the petals fall
when she walks
a melody plays
her graceful height
like a wicker tree

her years are still of nascence
but the language of eyes
she comprehends

she is lost from many
births ago
though it seems as affair of
yesterday
why, it seems an affair of today
why, it seems this
moments affair
just now she stood by my side
and now she has vanished
what trick what chase is this
my senses, they're mystified
searching for that girl

I call out to that girl in my name
I call out to that girl on her name
I call out to that girl in the name of all
I call out to her in the name of god

if she reads or hears this
if she be alive or dying
come and meet me once
do not sully my devotion

lest I can't live
nor write a word
lest I can't live
nor write a word
lest I can't live

The Eels - I Need Some Sleep


I need some sleep
It can't go on like this
I tried 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
You 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
You just gotta let it go

You just gotta let it go

Journey - Be Good To Yourself


Runnin' out of self-control

Gettin' close to an overload
Up against a no win situation
Shoulder to shoulder, push and shove
I'm hangin' up my boxin' gloves
I'm ready for a long vacation

Be good to yourself when, nobody else will

Oh be good to yourself
You're walkin' a high wire, caught in a cross fire
Oh be good to yourself
When you can't give no more
They want it all but you gotta say no

I'm turnin' off the noise that makes me crazy

Lookin' back with no regrets
To forgive is to forget
I want a little piece of mind to turn to

Be good to yourself when, nobody else will



Journey - All The Way



I kiss you and I feel you pull away
It hurts me when I see you hesitate
Mistakes I've made I wish I could take them back...
Say it's not too late to hear you...

Speak your heart and I will listen
Don't hold back we'll find what's missin'
I'll take you all the way
Close your eyes and think forever
If you believe we go together
I'll take you all the way

Sifting through the memories we have known

Looking back at places we have gone
Let's not leave behind what so few have found
Love ain't always easy so...

I'll take you all... the way

I'll take you all... the way

From the miles that come between us

To have faith in love and where it leads us

I'll take you all the way
I'll take you all the way

I'll take you all the way


From the miles that come between us

To the faith in love and where it leads us

I'll take you all the way


The Smiths - Asleep


Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I'm tired and I
I want to go to bed

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
And then leave me alone
Don't try to wake me in the morning
'Cause I will be gone
Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I will feel so glad to go


Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore


Sing to me
Sing to me
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore


Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I really want to go


There is another world
There is a better world
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well ...

Green Day - Misery


Virginia was a lot lizard from F.L.A.
She had a compound fracture in the trunk
It started when she ran away
Thumbs out on the interstate
She hitched a ride to misery

Mr. Whirly had a catastrophic incident
He fell into the city by the bay
He liquidated his estate
Now he sleeps upon the Haight
Panhandling misery

And he's gonna get high high high
When he's low low low
The fire burns from better days
And she screams why oh why
I said I don't know
The catastrophic hymns from yesterday
Of misery

Vinnie was a hustler out of Amsterdam
He ran the drug cartel in Tinsel town
They found him in a cadillac
Bludgeoned with a baseball bat in the name
Of misery

Gina hit the road to New York City
Mysteriously the night Vinnie croaked
She stopped in Vegas to elope
With Virginia and the dope
And kissed the bride eternally

And they're gonna get high high high
When they're low low low
The fire burns from better days
And she screams why oh why
I said I don't know
The catastrophic hymns from yesterday
Of misery

Hell hounds on your trail now once again boy
It's groping on your leg until it sleeps
The emptiness will fill your soul with sorrow
'Cause it's not what you make it's what you leave

And we're gonna get high high high
When I'm low low low
The fire burns from better days
And she screams why oh why
I said I don't know
The catastrophic hymns from yesterday
Of misery

Eels - Birdgirl On The Cell Phone



She has eyes disability blue
A german dog and a strict curfew
And if one man's cage is another man's stage
Then she's turned the script to another page
And she doesn't really give a damn
What you have to say

She makes a call on her friend's cell phone

The operator answers and says "you're not alone"
And if one man's ceiling is another's dance floor
Then she'll be the one running to the seashore
Trying to tell the seagulls this is home

And if one man's cage is another man's stage

Then she'll be the one wiser than her age
Trying to get the message to your ears

Alabama - Song Of The South



Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again

Cotton on the roadside, cotton in the ditch

We all picked the cotton but we never got rich
Daddy was a veteran, a southern democrat
They oughta get a rich man to vote like that

Sing it...


Well somebody told us Wall Street fell

But we were so poor that we couldn't tell
Cotton was short and the weeds were tall
But Mr. Roosevelt's a gonna save us all

Well momma got sick and daddy got down

The county got the farm and they moved to town
Pappa got a job with the TBA
He bought a washing machine and then a Chevrolet

Sing it...


Play it...


Sing it...


Song, song of the south...


Gone, gone with the wind...

Song, song of the south.

Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth.
Song, song of the south.
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth.

Sing it...

Josh Groban - Don't Give Up ( You Are Loved)



Don’t give up
It’s just the weight of the world
When your heart’s heavy, I
I will lift it for you
Don’t give up
Because you want to be heard
If silence keeps you, I
I will break it for you

Everybody wants to be understood

Well I can hear you
Everybody wants to be loved
Don’t give up
Because you are loved

Don’t give up

It’s just the hurt
That you hide
When you’re lost inside, I
I’ll be there to find you

Don’t give up

Because you want to burn bright
If darkness blinds you I
I will shine to guide you

Everybody wants to be understood

Well I can hear you
Everybody wants to be loved
Don’t give up
Because you are loved

You are loved


Don’t give up

It's just the weight of the world

Don't give up

Everyone needs to be heard

You are loved

Tom Waits - Come On Up To The House


Well the moon is broken
And the sky is cracked
Come on up to the house
The only things that you can see
Is all that you lack
Come on up to the house

All your cryin don't do no good
Come on up to the house
Come down off the cross
We can use the wood
Come on up to the house

Come on up to the house
Come on up to the house
The world is not my home
I'm just a passin thru
Come on up to the house

There's no light in the tunnel
No irons in the fire
Come on up to the house
And your singin lead soprano
In a junkman's choir
You gotta come on up to the house

Does life seem nasty, brutish and short
Come on up to the house
The seas are stormy
And you can't find no port
Come on up to the house
There's nothin in the world

[Chorus]

There's nothin in the world
that you can do
you gotta come on up to the house
and you been whipped by the forces
that are inside you
come on up to the house
well you're high on top
of your mountain of woe
come on up to the house
well you know you should surrender
but you can't let go
you gotta come on up to the house

[Chorus]

Dallas Green - Hello, I'm In Delaware


So there goes my life
Passing by with every exit sign
It's been so long
Sometimes I wonder how I will stay strong
No sleep tonight
I'll keep on driving these dark highway lines
And as the moon fades
One more night gone, only twenty more days

But I will see you again
I will see you again a long time from now

And there goes my life
Passing by with every departing flight
And its been so hard
So much time so far apart
And she walks the night
How many hearts will die tonight
And will things have changed
I guess I'll find out seventeen days

But I will see you again
I will see you again a long time from now

My body aches,
and it hurts to sing,
and no one is moving
And I wish that I weren't here tonight,
but this is my life

And I will see you again
I will see you again a long time from now

And I will see you again
I will see you again a long time from now

Depeche Mode - Walking in My Shoes


I would tell you about the things they put me through
The pain I've been subjected to
But the Lord himself would blush
The countless feasts laid at my feet
Forbidden fruits for me to eat
But I think your pulse would start to rush

Now I'm not looking for absolution
Forgiveness for the things I do
But before you come to any conclusions
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I kept
If you try walking in my shoes
If you try walking in my shoes

Morality would frown upon
Decency look down upon
The scapegoat fate's made of me
But I promise now, my judge and jurors
My intentions couldn't have been purer
My case is easy to see

I'm not looking for a clearer conscience
Peace of mind after what I've been through
And before we talk of any repentance
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I kept
If you try walking in my shoes
If you try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

Now I'm not looking for absolution
Forgiveness for the things I do
But before you come to any conclusions
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I kept
If you try walking in my shoes
You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I kept
If you try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes
If you try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

Bob Dylan - Things Have Changed


A worried man with a worried mind
No one in front of me and nothing behind
There’s a woman on my lap and she’s drinking champagne
Got white skin, got assassin’s eyes
I’m looking up into the sapphire-tinted skies
I’m well dressed, waiting on the last train

Standing on the gallows with my head in a noose
Any minute now I’m expecting all hell to break loose

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

This place ain’t doing me any good
I’m in the wrong town, I should be in Hollywood
Just for a second there I thought I saw something move
Gonna take dancing lessons, do the jitterbug rag
Ain’t no shortcuts, gonna dress in drag
Only a fool in here would think he’s got anything to prove

Lot of water under the bridge, lot of other stuff too
Don’t get up gentlemen, I’m only passing through

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

I’ve been walking forty miles of bad road
If the Bible is right, the world will explode
I’ve been trying to get as far away from myself as I can
Some things are too hot to touch
The human mind can only stand so much
You can’t win with a losing hand

Feel like falling in love with the first woman I meet
Putting her in a wheelbarrow and wheeling her down the street

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

I hurt easy, I just don’t show it
You can hurt someone and not even know it
The next sixty seconds could be like an eternity
Gonna get low down, gonna fly high
All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie
I’m in love with a woman who don’t even appeal to me

Mr. Jinx and Miss Lucy, they jumped in the lake
I’m not that eager to make a mistake

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

Nick Drake - Things Behind The Sun


Please beware of them that stare
They’ll only smile to see you while
Your time away

And once you’ve seen what they have been
To win the earth just won’t seem worth

Your night or your day

Who’ll hear what I say?

Look around you find the ground
Is not so far from where you are
But don’t be too wise

For down below they never grow
They’re always tired and charms are hired
From out of their eyes

Never surprise

Take your time and you’ll be fine
And say a prayer for people there
Who live on the floor
And if you see what’s meant to be
Don’t name the day or try to say
It happened before

Don’t be shy you learn to fly
And see the sun when day is done
If only you see

Just what you are beneath a star
That came to stay one rainy day
In autumn for free

Yes, be what you’ll be

Please beware of them that stare
They’ll only smile to see you while
Your time away

And once you’ve seen what they have been
To win the earth just won’t seem worth
Your night or your day

Who’ll hear what I say

Open up the broken cup
Let goodly sin and sunshine in
Yes that’s today
And open wide the hymns you hide
You’ll find renown while people frown
At things that you say
But say what you’ll say

About the farmers and the fun
And the things behind the sun
And the people round your head
Who say everything’s been said
And the movement in your brain
Sends you out into the rain

Gary Barlow - Forever Love



Love it has so many beautiful faces
Sharing lives and sharing days
My love it has so many empty spaces
I'm sharing a memory now I hope that's how it stays
Now I'm deep inside love and still breathing
She is holding my heart in her hand
I'm the closest I've been to believing
this could be love forever
All throughout my life the reasons I've demanded
But how can I reason with the reason I'm a man
Oh, oh yeah, ummm huh
In a minute I'm needing to hold her
In an hour I'm cold, cold as stone
When she leaves it gets harder and
harder to face life alone
Now my dreams are filled with times when we're together
Guess what I need from her is forever love
Ooh, ooh yeah oooh umm
Oh, oh yeah
Now I feel forever love oooh
Oh, I feel



Boyz II Men - I Will Get There




I've been wanderin' 'round in the dark
Been lost somewhere where no light could shine on my heart
I have known a pain so deep
But I know my faith will free me
[Get there]
And I'll get through this
[Get there]
I'll find my way again
So don't tell me that it's over
'Cause each step just gets me closer
(I will get there) I will get there
(I will get there) I will get there somehow
Cross that river (Cross that river)
Nothing's stoppin' me now
I will get through the night (Oh, yes, I will)
And make it through to the other side
(Get there)
Get there
(Get there)
Get there
I've been in these chains for so long
I'll break free and I'll be there where I belong
Hold my head up high, I'll stand tall
And I swear this time I won't fall
[Get there]
I will do this
[Get there]
No matter what it takes
'Cause I know no limitations
And I'll reach my destination, I will get there
I will get there
(I will get there)
I will get there (Ooh)
somehow (Somehow)
Cross that river (Cross that river)
Nothing's stoppin' me now
I will get through the night
And make it through to the other side
(Ooh, get there) Get there
(Get there) Get there
Well, the night is cold and dark
But somewhere the sun is shining
And I'll feel it shine on me
I'll keep on tryin', I'll keep on tryin'
I will get there (I will get there)
I will get there somehow
Cross that river (Cross that river)
Nothing's stoppin' me now
I will get through the night
And make it through to the other side
Get there, get there
I will get there (I will get there)
I will get there somehow (Somehow)
Cross that river (I'll cross that river for you)
Nothing's stoppin' me now (
I will get through
(Through) the night
And make it through to the other side
(Get there) Get there
(Ooh, get there) Get there
I will get there
(I will get there)
I will get there somehow
(Somehow)
Cross that river
(I'll cross it for your love)
Nothing's stoppin' me now
(No matter what)
I will get through the night
(I will get through the night)
And make it through to the other side
(Get there)
Get there
(Ooh, get there)
Get there
Get there
Ohhooh
I'll get there

Beck - Missing


Something always takes the place of missing pieces
You can take and put together even though
You know there's something missing

The sun burned a hole in my roof
I can't seem to fix it
And I hope rain doesn't come
Wash me down the gutter

Something always takes the place of missing pieces
You can take and put together even though
You know there's something missing

She rides in a car
Like a queen on a card
And the guns of her mind
Aim a line straight at mine
To a heart that is broke
Tried to feel but got choked
In the smoke of a desert
A beach with no treasure
A night that seems blue
Feed the aching in you
And the background birds
Take a flight from the earth
A bonfire burns
And the night current turns
On a lifeboat floating
Down a river of sleep
Can't see her hollow eyes
Walking along with my boots full of rocks
Can't believe these tears of mine
I give 'em to you to keep away in a box

Something always takes the place of missing pieces
You can take and put together even though
You know there's something missing

Something always missing
Always someone missing something
Something always missing
Always someone missing something
Something always missing
Always someone missing something
Something always missing
Always someone missing something

Jackie Greene - Travelin' Song


Well I woke up Wednesday morning with bad weather in my brain,
I lay awake awhile ignoring all the rain
Now everybody’s talkin’ about who they plan to be,
Everybody’s talkin’, everybody except me…

And no one cares about your heartache or which lonely town you’re from;
You got to take your salvation boy, however it may come
And I can’t help but think about what I done wrong
To deserve this a roamin’ this a travelin’ song

Now I got a little money and I got a little time,
I got myself a pickup truck that I can call mine
I got myself a guitar and I got myself some friends
Some folks say I’m lucky, but I think it all depends…

On the lens that you are looking through and the music that you hear;
Cause sometimes you don’t recognize your own face in the mirror
And I can’t help but think about what I done wrong
To deserve this a roamin’ this a travelin’ song

Out here on the highway, everything’s so slow,
I thought I knew my way home, but now I just don’t know
I’m going down the road with all them Easter Winds a blowin’
I’m going down the road and I don’t care where it’s going…

So one more cup of coffee and the radio is on;
And I’ll slip out your door to the breaking of dawn
And I can’t help but think about what I done wrong
To deserve this a roamin’ this a travelin’ song

The Cure - The Same Deep Water As You


Kiss me goodbye
Pushing out before I sleep
Can't you see I try
Swimming the same deep water as you is hard
"The shallow drowned lose less than we"
You breathe
The strangest twist upon your lips
"And we shall be together... "

"Kiss me goodbye
Bow your head and join with me"
And face pushed deep
Reflections meet
The strangest twist upon your lips
And disappear
The ripples clear
And laughing
Break against your feet
And laughing
Break the mirror sweet
"So we shall be together... "

"Kiss me goodbye"
Pushing out before I sleep
It's lower now and slower now
The strangest twist upon your lips
But I don't see
And I don't feel
But tightly hold up silently
My hands before my fading eyes
And in my eyes
Your smile
The very last thing before I go...

Iwill kiss you I will kiss you
I will kiss you forever on nights like this
I will kiss you I will kiss you
And we shall be together...

Cleopatra Stratan - Ghita



Hainita Sta In Cui

afara Soare Nu-I

nimic Nu-I Bun De Cand

ma Gandesc La Ghita

dar Ghita Nu-I In Sat

eu M-Am Interesat

imi Pare Ca-I Plecat

dupa Granita...

greu, Tare Mi-I De Greu,

vreau, Da Nu Stiu Ce Vreau;

stiu Ca Si Tu Ma Placi

spune, Ghita, Ce Tu Taci?

ori Vina Ori Ti Du

ori Spune Da Ori Nu

eu Te Rog Nu Ma-Nerva

ghita Ce-I Cu Viata Ta?


Ghita, Te-Astept Diseara La Portita

langa Portita De La Scoala

vino Da Numa Nu Vini Cum Vii Tu

de Obicei Cu Mana Goala

cine Te Mai Asteapta Ca Si Mine

o Seara Intreaga Numai Pe Tine.

ghita, Arata-Mi Tu O Fata Care

sa Te Iubeasca Asa De Tare!


ghita, Te-Astept Diseara La Portita

langa Portita De La Scoala

vino Da Numa Nu Vini Cum Vii Tu

de Obicei Cu Mana Goala

cine Te Mai Asteapta Ca Si Mine

o Seara Intreaga Numai Pe Tine.

ghita, Arata-Mi Tu O Fata Care

sa Te Iubeasca Asa De Tare!


ghita, Te-Astept Diseara La Portita

langa Portita De La Scoala

vino Da Numa Nu Vini Cum Vii Tu

de Obicei Cu Mana Goala

cine Te Mai Asteapta Ca Si Mine

o Seara Intreaga Numai Pe Tine.

ghita, Arata-M? Tu O Fata Care

sa Te ?ubeasca Asa De Tare!


Translation


The coat is inside out,
There is no sun above
Nothing is going good
Since I think of Ghita.
But Ghita's not in town
I asked why he's not around
It seems to me he's gone
He's gone abroad

Hard, I think it's very hard

Want, I don't know what I want
I know that you like me too
Ghita, what is up with you?
Young, come on in or go
Young, tell me yes or no
Ghita, please don´t anger me
Tell me how your life will be

Ghita,

Tonight I'm waiting at the wicket
Me at the station I bought a ticket
Come to,
But don't come as you did before
As usually with empty hands...
Who else
Will and sing for you as I do
Entire evening just getting there
Ghita,
Show me a girl who's fond of you
That loves you more as much as I do...

Joan Baez - Less Than The Song


I am less than the song I am singing
I am more than I thought I could be
Spent some time as a child in day dreaming
As a young one I sailed on the sea

So come stand by my side where I am going
Take my hand if I stumble to fall
It's the strength that you share when your growing
That gives me what I need most of all
That gives me what I need most of all

Diffrent minds, diffrent ways
Diffrent reasons to believe
Some far journeys we have taken
Some sweet dreams we've had to leave

And I want you to be happy
And I hope you always will
Or I cannot rest easy
Till all your dreams are real
Till all your dreams are real

Gary Lawyer - Cigarette In My Hand


I remember the time, I had my first hook
Try it just once, friends gently provoked
Friends told me yes, light a ciggy for a start
you would like the fire in a pretty girls laugh

With a cigarette in my hand I felt like a man
cigarette in my hand I felt like a man

My hero look so right
with a cigarette on his lips
Could I go wrong if I follow his tips
On the job I learnt a thing or two
cigarette had a place in every work day too
cigarette started every hour of my day
couldn't get out of the habit, no way

With a cigarette in my hand I felt like a man
cigarette in my hand I felt like a man.

In moments that were a little a lonesome,
cigarette and I were happy twosome
cigarette slowly became my crunch
energy and stamina are lost very much
until one day I couldn’t on my feet
smoke made me feel real dead meat
then I realized I have paid a price.

With a cigarette in my hand, I was a dead man.

Guns N Roses - Don't Cry ( Alternate Lyrics)



If we could see tomorrow
What of your plans
No one can live in sorrow
Ask all your friends
Times that you took in stride
They're back in demand
I was the one who's washing
Blood off your hands


Don't you cry tonight

I still love you baby
Don't you cry tonight
Don't you cry tonight
There's a heaven above you baby
And don't you cry tonight


I know the things you wanted

They're not what you have
With all the people talkin' it's drivin' you mad
If I was standin' by you how would you feel
Knowing your love's decided
And all love is real


An don't you cry tonight

Don't you cry tonight
Don't you cry tonight
There's a heaven above you baby
And don't you cry tonight


I thought I could live in your world

As years all went by
With all the voices I've heard
Something has died
And when you're in need of someone
My heart won't deny you
So many seem so lonely
With no one left to cry to baby


An don't you cry tonight

An don't you cry tonight
An don't you cry tonight
There's a heaven above you baby
And don't you cry
Don't you ever cry
Don't you cry tonight
Baby maybe someday
Don't you cry
Don't you ever cry
Don't you cry
Tonight

Sarah McLachlan - Mercy


With sweet breath, you'd come come to warn me
But I held on too hard, to only a memory
You lie there on the swollen ground
Deserted in your heart
Still longing for what yesterday's lost
And for all that tommorrow might bring
And for all that tommorrow might bring


The passion lost - taken, stolen
The dreams we had, and we shared - shattered and broken

With kind words you'd come to soothe me
But I, so blind and filled with fear,
Would send you away from me
There's no hope in regretting now
All the pain that we could not see
We both knew what we wanted
And we took it, believing it free
And we took it, believing it free

John Lennon - Oh My Love




Oh my love for the first time in my life
My eyes are wide open
Oh my lover for the first time in my life
My eyes can see

I see the wind, oh I see the trees

Everything is clear in my heart
I see the clouds, oh I see the sky
Everything is clear in our world

Oh my love for the first time in my life

My mind is wide open
Oh my lover for the first time in my life
My mind can feel

I feel the sorrow, oh I feel the dreams

Everything is clear in my heart
I feel life, oh I feel love
Everything is clear in our world

Okkervil River - A Stone


Hot breath,
Rough skin,
Warm laughs and smiling,
The lovliest words,
Whispered and meant
You like all these things.

But, though you like all these things,
You love a stone.
You love a stone,
Because it's smooth and it's cold.
And you'd love most,
To be told,
That it's all your own.

You love white veins,
You love hard grey,
The heaviest weight,
The clumsiest shape,
The earthiest smell,
The hollowest tone,
You love a stone.

And I'm found too fast,
Called too fond of flames,
And I'm phoning my friends,
And I'm shouldering the blame,
While you're picking pebbles,
Out of the drain,
Miles ago.
And you're out singing songs,
And I'm down shouting names,
At the flickerless screen,
Going fucking insane.
Am I losing my cool,
Overstating my case?
Well, baby what can I say?

You know I never claimed,
That I was a stone.
And you love a stone.
You love white veins,
You love hard grey,
The heaviest weight,
The clumsiest shape,
The earthiest smell,
The hollowest tone,
You love a stone.

You love a stone,
Because it's dark and it's old,
And if it could start,
Being alive,
You'd stop living alone.

And I think I believe that,
If stones could dream,
They'd dream of being laid,
Side-by-side,
Piece-by-piece,
And turned into a castle,
For some towering queen,
They're unable to know.

And when that queen's daughter
Came of age,
I think she'd be lovely
And stubborn and brave,
And suitors would journey,
From kingdoms away,
Just to make themselves known.

And I think that I know,
The bitter dismay,
Of a lover who brought,
Fresh brouquets every day,
When she turned him away,
To remember some knave,
Who once gave,
Just one rose,
One day,
Years ago.
