2000 Miles - Pretenders

He's gone 2000 miles
It's very far
The snow is falling down
Gets colder day by day
I miss you

The children will sing
He'll be back at Christmas time

In these frozen and silent nights
Sometimes in a dream you appear
Outside under the purple sky
Diamonds in the snow sparkle
Our hearts were singing
It felt like Christmas time

2000 miles
Is very far through the snow
I'll think of you
Wherever you go

He's gone 2000 miles
It's very far
The snow is falling down
Gets colder day by day
I miss you

I can hear people singing
It must be Christmas time
I hear people singing
It must be Christmas time

for some reason today these lyrics came my way and connected me.....



Pot'n'Kettle midlife lucy...

Mid-life Lucy sat in the light of her lunch-time decided to wait until night

Mid-life Lucy sat on her own with her coffee and phone, showing off her new ring tone

But no-one's worth answering now

And she's taken more time than her lunch-time allows

Mid-life Lucy longs for the time she remembers inside like a nursery rhyme

Mid-life Lucy can't hear the phone, just a distant echo of her sister's trombone

And she's writing the words that it sings

That she's held on too long as the one left of twins

And you can cry sis, cry sis, you're allowed to cry

Cry sis, you can cry now.

Cry sis, you can cry now.

And it feels like to late to revisit your fate

But it's true that the heart knows no time

Mid-life Lucy surrounded by boys, she's immune to the noise

As she questions the choice

Mid-life Lucy stuck in her silence, she squeals with delight

In her step back inside

And her life reads like an endless book

There's no turning back, the phone rings off the hook.

And you can cry sis, cry sis, you're allowed to cry

Cry sis, you can cry now. X 2

Cry sis, you can cry now.

Forever Young - Alphaville

Let's dance in style, lets dance for a while
Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you going to drop the BOMB or not?
Let us die young or let us live forever
We don't have the power but we never say never

Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The music's for the sad men
Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders we're getting in tune
The music's played by the madman


Forever young, i want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever forever
Forever young, i want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever
Forever young


Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later they all will be gone
Why don't they stay young
It's so hard to get old without a cause
I don't want to perish like a fading horse
Youth is like diamonds in the sun
And diamonds are forever
So many adventures couldn't happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams are swinging out of the blue
We let them come true


Forever young, i want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever forever
Forever young, i want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever forever forever
Forever young, i want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever forever
Forever young, i want to be forever

Is That All There Is? - Peggy Lee

I remember when I was a very little girl, our house caught on fire.
I'll never forget the look on my father's face as he gathered me up
In his arms and raced through the burning building out to the pavement.
I stood there shivering in my pajamas and watched the whole world go up in flames.
And when it was all over I said to myself, "Is that all there is to a fire?"

Is that all there is, is that all there is
If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing
Let's break out the booze and have a ball
If that's all there is

And when I was 12 years old, my father took me to a circus, the greatest show on earth.
There were clowns and elephants and dancing bears.
And a beautiful lady in pink tights flew high above our heads.
And so I sat there watching the marvelous spectacle.
I had the feeling that something was missing.
I don't know what, but when it was over,
I said to myself, "Is that all there is to a circus?"

Is that all there is, is that all there is
If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing
Let's break out the booze and have a ball
If that's all there is

Then I fell in love, head over heels in love, with the most wonderful boy in the world.
We would take long walks by the river or just sit for hours gazing into each other's eyes.
We were so very much in love.
Then one day he went away and I thought I'd die, but I didn't,
And when I didn't I said to myself, "Is that all there is to love?"

Is that all there is, is that all there is
If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing
Let's break out the booze and have a ball
If that's all there is

I know what you must be saying to yourselves,
If that's the way she feels about it why doesn't she just end it all?
Oh, no, not me. I'm in no hurry for that final disappointment,
For I know just as well as I'm standing here talking to you,
When that final moment comes and I'm breathing my last breath, I'll be saying to myself

Is that all there is, is that all there is
If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing
Let's break out the booze and have a ball
If that's all there is

Hmm I don't know if I posted it before or not. But this song is one of my favs.
Do you know what's worth fighting for?
When it's not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating?

Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart inside?
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I

When you're at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul

Your faith walks on broken glass
And the hangover doesn't pass
Nothing's ever built to last
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I

Did you try to live on your own
When you burned down the house and home?
Did you stand too close to the fire
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone?

When it's time to live and let die
And you can't get another try
Something inside this heart has died
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I

I awoke to this song in my head......not sure why just yet.
David Bowie Space Oddity

Ground control to major Tom
Ground control to major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
(Ten) Ground control (Nine) to major Tom (Eight)
(Seven, six) Commencing countdown (Five), engines on (Four)
(Three, two) Check ignition (One) and may gods (Blastoff) love be with you

This is ground control to major Tom, you've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

This is major Tom to ground control, I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
Here am I floatin' 'round my tin can far above the world
Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do

Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles, I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows
Ground control to major Tom, your circuits dead, there's something wrong
Can you hear me, major Tom?
Can you hear me, major Tom?
Can you hear me, major Tom?
Can you...
Here am I sitting in my tin can far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do

Radiohead - Creep

When you were here before,
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel,
Your skin makes me cry

You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You're so f***in' special

But I'm a creep,
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

I don't care if it hurts,
I wanna have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul

I want you to notice
when I'm not around
You're so f***in' special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here, ohhhh, ohhhh

She's running out again
She's running out
She run run run run...
run... run...

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so f***in' special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep,
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

I don't belong here...

This is kind of how I feel right now. Sad

Another turning point;
a fork stuck in the road.

Time grabs you by the wrist;
directs you where to go.

So make the best of this test
and don't ask why.

It's not a question
but a lesson learned in time.

It's something unpredictable
but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

So take the photographs
and still frames in your mind.

Hang it on a shelf
In good health and good time.

Tattoos of memories
and dead skin on trial.

For what it's worth,
it was worth all the while.

It's something unpredictable
but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

(music break)

It's something unpredictable
but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

It's something unpredictable
but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

Memories are just where you laid them
Drag the waters �till the depths give up their dead
What did you expect to find?
Was there something you left behind?
Don�t you remember anything I said when I said

Don�t fall away, and leave me to myself
Don�t fall away and leave love bleeding
In my hands, in my hands again
Leave love bleeding
In my hands, in my hands
Love lies bleeding

Oh hold me now I feel contagious
Am I the only place that you�ve left to go
She cries her life is like
Some movie black and white
Dead actors faking lines
Over and over and over again she cries

Don�t fall away, and leave me to myself
Dont fall away, and leave love bleeding
In my hands, in my hands again
Leave love bleeding
In my hands, in my hands
Love lies bleeding

And I wanted
You turned away
You don�t remember, but I do
You never even tried

Don�t fall away and leave me to myself
Don�t fall away and leave love bleeding
In my hands, in my hands again
Leave love bleeding
In my hands, in my hands
Love lies bleeding

default When you find me by Joshua Radin

Post by altair1913 on Thu May 06, 2010 6:09 pm

Something is said, it sits in my head
It's been there too long, it's killing me slow
It's rolling around, it's pushing me down
It's keeping the good part of me closed

Can't you see that when I find you, I'll find me

Oh I need you to know today I'll wait for you always
Oh I need you to know today I'll wait for you always

My only weakness, is knowing your secrets
and holding them close, and hold them tight
I know the way to silently make you
smile with my eyes, when you're trying to fight

Can't you see that when I find you, I'll find me

Oh I need you to know today I'll wait for you always
Oh I need you to know today I'll wait for you always

Cause when I find you, I'll find me

Can't you see that when I find you I'll find me

Oh I need you to know today I'll wait for you always
Oh I need you to know today I'll wait for you always
Oh I need you to know today I'll wait for you always

When I find you...
When I find you...

...I'll find me

Capital G ~ Nine Inch Nails


I pushed the button and elected him to office and a
He pushed the button and he dropped the bomb
You pushed the button and could watch in on the television
Those motherfuckers didn't last too long

I'm sick of hearing about the have and have not's
Have some personal accountability
The biggest problem with the way that we are doing things is
The more we let you have the less that I'll be keeping for me

Well I use to stand for something
Now I'm on my hands and knees
Trading in my god for this one
and he signs his name with a capital G

Don't give a shit about the temperature in Guatemala
Don't really see what all the fuss is about
Ain't gonna worry about no future generations
And I'm sure somebody's gonna figure it out

Don't try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person
You hadn't had enough to know what it's like
You're only angry cause you wish you were in my position
Now nod your head cause you know that I'm right..alright!

Well I use to stand for something
But forgot what that could be
There's a lot of me inside you
Maybe you're afraid to see
Well I use to stand for something
Now I'm on my hands and knees
Trading in my god for this one
and he signs his name with a capital G

Well I use to stand for something
But forgot what that could be
There's a lot of me inside you
Maybe you're afraid to see

Well I use to stand for something
Now I'm on my hands and knees
Trading in my god for this one
and he signs his name with a capital G

Alone Again Or - Love

Yeah, said it's all right
I won't forget
All the times I've waited patiently for you
And you'll do just what you choose to do
And I will be alone again tonight my dear

Yeah, I heard a funny thing
Somebody said to me
You know that I could be in love with almost everyone
I think that people are
The greatest fun
And I will be alone again tonight my dear

Revenge Is Sweet - Attila (featuring a very young Billy Joel, back when he was really badass)

Revenge is sweet
At last, I've overcome defeat
I said I'd win somehow

I had to wait
Ah, but look, I'll retaliate
I see who's laughing now

I can spit on those who called me names
I'm a phoenix rising from the flames

Revenge is sweet
At last, my victory complete
I drink it in like wine

I'm done with years
Of pain, tasting bitter tears
This moment is divine

I was told: don't even try
Look again, you fools, I'll touch the sky

People laughed at me, said I'd never win
Now I turn around and KICK YOUR FACES IN!!!

KICK YOUR FACES IN!!!

Revenge is sweet
And now, I'll make you kiss my feet
Admit that you were wrong

You see, you fools
I've gone, I've broken all the rules
It's taken me so long

I can spit on those who called me names
I'm a phoenix rising from the flames

Ah, revenge is so sweet

Small Beginnings - Flash

In the morning when you start your day
Do you feel yourself quite lost
In a world of countless millions
And the tide of your life got tossed
Don't think you're getting nowhere
You know we all must start
From very small beginnings
Off to a better part

In the rush and hassle of your day
When all your world seems mad
Do you look at everything you see
And know that it's not so bad
Just take your time and work it out
You know what's in your mind
From very small beginnings
Off to a better time

Take your time and work it out, then maybe you'll see
Your not wasting your time running around
Just acting a play, just finding your way
Your making it pay, you're making today

In the darkness of a brand new day
When everything's hushed and still
You can pick up everything you see
And know that it's all worthwhile
The dark long night is faded

It starts from small beginnings
Moves to every part

Take your time and work it out, then maybe you'll see
Your not wasting your time running around
Just acting a play, just finding your way
Your making it pay, you're making today

In the morning when you start your day (4x)

In the morning when you start your day
Do you feel yourself quite lost
In a world of countless millions
And the tide of your life got tossed
Don't think you're getting nowhere
You know we all must start
From very small beginnings
Off to a better part

Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night.

Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night.

Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night.

Madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder feelin' kinda older I tripped the merry-go-round
With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing the calliope crashed to the ground

The calliope crashed to the ground

And she was Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night.

Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce,

Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce,

Some silicone sister with her manager mister told me I got what it takes
She said I'll turn you on sonny to something strong play that song with the funky break
And go-cart Mozart was checkin' out the weather chart to see if it was safe outside
And little Early-Burly came by in his curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride.

Asked me if I need a ride

�Cause she was Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night.

Blinded by the light.
She got down but she never got tired,
she's gonna make it to the night.
She's gonna make it through the night

But mama, that�s where the fun is.

But mama, that�s where the fun is.

Mama always told me not to look in to the eyes of the sun,
But mama, that�s where the fun is.

Some brimstone baritone anticyclone rolling stone preacher from the east
Says: "Dethrone the dictaphone, hit it in its funny bone, that's where they expect it least"
And some new-mown chaperone was standin' in the corner, watchin' the young girls dance. And some fresh-sown moonstone was messin' with his frozen zone reminding him of romance.

The calliope crashed to the ground

But she was blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night.

^ That is the Manfred Mann version, they leave out half of the lyrics. This is Bruce Springsteen's version (the original). I put the lyrics left out of the Manfred Mann version in bold:

Blinded By The Light

Madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder feelin' kinda older I tripped the merry-go-round
With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing the calliope crashed to the ground
Some all-hot half-shot was headin' for the hot spot snappin' his fingers clappin' his hands
And some fleshpot mascot was tied into a lover's knot with a whatnot in her hand

And now young Scott with a slingshot finally found a tender spot and throws his lover in the sand
And some bloodshot forget-me-not whispers daddy's within earshot save the buckshot turn up the band

And she was blinded by the light
Cut loose like a deuce another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
She got down but she never got tight, but she'll make it alright

Some brimstone baritone anti-cyclone rolling stone preacher from the east
He says: "Dethrone the dictaphone, hit it in its funny bone, that's where they expect it least"
And some new-mown chaperone was standin' in the corner all alone watchin' the young girls dance
And some fresh-sown moonstone was messin' with his frozen zone to remind him of the feeling of romance

Yeah he was blinded by the light
Cut loose like a deuce another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
He got down but she never got tight, but he's gonna make it tonight

Some silicone sister with her manager's mister told me I got what it takes
She said I'll turn you on sonny, to something strong if you play that song with the funky break,
And go-cart Mozart was checkin' out the weather chart to see if it was safe to go outside
And little Early-Pearly came in by her curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride,
Oh, some hazard from Harvard was skunked on beer playin' backyard bombardier
Yes and Scotland Yard was trying hard, they sent a dude with a calling card,
he said, do what you like, but don't do it here
Well I jumped up, turnedaround, spit in the air, fell on the ground
Asked him which was the way back home
He said take a right at the light, keep goin' straight until night, and then boy, you're on your own

And now in Zanzibar a shootin' star was ridin' in a side car hummin' a lunar tune
Yes, and the avatar said blow the bar but first remove the cookie jar we're gonna teach those boys to laugh too soon

And some kidnapped handicap was complainin' that he caught the clap from some mousetrap he bought last night,

Well I unsnapped his skull cap and between his ears I saw
a gap but figured he'd be all right


He was just blinded by the light
Cut loose like a deuce another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun
Oh but mama that's where the fun is

"Wish You Were Here"

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
------------------------

This brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. It was performed at a close friend's funeral...

Anything Box I Felt the Pain Lyrics:
There's been a lot of talking
From the town where I come from.
All my friends are saying things
Which make me doubt sincerity.
What is the meaning
of a truth or a lie?
What is the meaning
of the things we feel inside?
I felt the pain...
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)
I felt the pain...
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)
In looking at your eyes,
The feeling of love
swells within my soul.
Every word that I say,
Has no meaning when you turned away.
[ Find more Lyrics on http://mp3lyrics.org/o81 ]
Why do I stay here
when I feel this way?
Why do I need to see you
on my darkest day?
I felt the pain...
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)
I felt the pain...
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)
I can see your little boy,
Reminding me of who I was.
I can see a little girl,
She looks like you...
I felt the pain...
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)
I felt the pain...
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)
I felt the pain...
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)
I felt the pain...
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)
(repeat until end)

John Lennon- "Working Class Hero"


As soon as your born they make you feel small
by giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
Working Class Hero is something to be
Working Class Hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you're clever and despise a fool
Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
Working Class Hero is something to be
Working Class Hero is something to be

When they've tortured and scared you for 20 odd years
then they expect you to pick a career
When you can't really function you're so full of fear
Working Class Hero is something to be
Working Class Hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religon, sex and T.V.
and you think you're so clever and classless and free
but you're still fucking peasents as far as I can see
Working Class Hero is something to be
Working Class Hero is something to be

There's room at the top I'm telling you still
but first you must learn how to smile as you kill
if you want to be like the folks on the hill
Working Class Hero is something to be

Yes , A Working Class Hero is something to be
If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me

one more John Lennon..."Love"

Love is real , real is love
Love is feeling , feeling love
Love is wanting to be loved

Love is touch, touch is love
Love is reaching, reaching love
Love is asking to be loved

Love is you
You and me
Love is knowing
we can be

Love is free, free is love
Love is living, living love
Love is needed to be loved

Love is hard...James Morrison

We see lovers in the streets
Walking without a care
They wear it out loud
Like there?s something in the air
Oh well, I don?t care

They?re treading lightly
No, they don?t sink in
There?s no tracks to follow
They don?t care where they?re going

And if they?re lucky, yeah
They?ll, they?ll get to see
And if they?re really, really lucky
They?ll get to feel

And it kicks so hard, it breaks your bones
Cuts so deep, it hits your soul
Tears your skin, and makes your blood flow
It?s better that you know that love is hard

Love takes hostages
And gives them pain
Gives someone the power
To hurt you again and again
Oh, but they don?t care

Oh, and if they?re lucky, yeah
They?ll, they?ll get to see
And if they?re really, really lucky
They?ll, they?ll get to feel

And if they?re, they?re truly blessed
Then they?ll get to believe
And if you?re damned
You?ll never let yourself be deceived

And it kicks so hard, it breaks your bones
Cuts so deep, it hits your soul
Tears your skin, and makes your blood flow
It?s better that we know that love is hard

It kicks so hard, it breaks your bones
Cuts so deep, it hits your soul
Tears your skin, and makes your blood flow
It?s better that we know

It kicks so hard, it breaks your bones
It cuts so deep, it hits your soul
Tears your skin, and makes your blood flow
It?s better that we know that love is hard
Love is hard, love is hard
If it was easy it wouldn?t mean nothing, no

Oasis.....let there be love
Well you can say what you want
but you wont get a thing from me
and if you don't understand then
its not in your hands what you mean

let there be love
let there be love
let there be love

well you can say what you feel
and they might never steal from me
and you must understand
that its all in your hands what you need

let there be love
let there be love
let there be love

and i never knew but all things that youve done
are coming right back to you
but everybody knows that its no crime
and does it make you feel ashamed?
you never said what you've done and its not me to blame
but everybody knows
yeah everybody knows
everybody knows that it's no crime
it's no crime

so you can say what you want but you'll not get a dollar from me
but say what you mean and you might get a thing from me

let there be love
let there be love
let there be love

if i ever knew that all the things would come back to you
but everybodys knows that its a crime
it never makes you feel ashamed
you sit around and you'll sulk then pass the blame
but everybody knows
yeah everybody knows
everybody knows its a crime
its a crime

Moonlight Eyes (Nazareth-written by Dan McCafferty)

Moonlight eyes I see you smile
It lightens up my night
Your smile takes all the fight out of me
Moonlight eyes I hear you cryin`
It robs me of my pride
There`s nothing I can hide from moonlight eyes
I got no control
You just roll me like the sea
Oh moonlight eyes

Mooonlight eyes you`re grown now
I`ll soon be out of touch
You`ll lose that innocence
That cost so much
Moonlight eyes you`ll find your pain
You`ll say that I`m all wrong
There`ll always be a place where you belong
I got no control
You just roll me like the sea
Oh moonlight eyes
Tell your sweet lies only to me, only to me

Moonlight eyes you soothe me
Moonlight eyes you`re easy on my soul
Moonlight eyes you are the reason
The meaning in the words
The words to every song I`ve ever heard
Paralysed in sweet surprise
Your every wrong is right
One look into your night
Oh moonlight eyes
I got no control
You just roll me like the sea
Oh moonlight eyes
Tell your sweet lies only to me, only to me
Moonlight eyes.

To Tell You The Truth

Morning Light comes shinin' in
It don't break and it don't bend
It don't hide behind the blue
I wish I could be that true
Wakin up's the harderst part
How could I have broke your heart
How do I just lie in bed
Knowin' what I haven't said

[Chorus:]
To tell you the truth would set me free
I'm livin' a lie and it's killin' me
What I really want to do is just talk this thing through
But it'll hurt you to tell you the truth

It all comes up with the mornin sun
It all comes down to the said and done
You know sometimes I pray for rain
I think somehow it hides my pain

[Chorus]

Well tomorrow's just another day
That I won't find the words to say
When that old sun comes shinin in
Reminding me again

[Chorus]

Morning light comes shinin' in
It don't break and it don't bend.

So is important for you to talk about these things here with people who might not perhaps connect to that space...or do you have other spaces online to connect with other people who are into this stuff.......
