    Default Song Lyrics

    written by NF (hippy) and wendy (not a hippie)

    Thank God for Tatum's Advil
    you dont know how bad I feel
    like someone hit me with an anvil
    and I'm regretting my last meal

    I think I drank some SoCo
    but I really just dont know
    Cause I simply cant remember
    last night's great big bender

    "...just an idle doodle in the margins of our minds ..."

    Never Tear Us Apart
    .... INXS

    Dont ask me
    what you know is true
    dont have to tell you
    I love your precious heart

    I
    I was standing
    You were there
    Two worlds collided
    And they could never tear us apart

    We could live
    For a thousand years
    But if I hurt you
    I'd make wine from your tears

    I told you
    That we could fly
    'Cause we all have wings
    But some of us don't know why

    I
    I was standing
    You were there
    Two worlds collided
    And they could never ever tear us apart

    "...just an idle doodle in the margins of our minds ..."

    A Sorta Fairytale Lyrics (Tori Amos)

    on my way up north
    up on the ventura
    i pulled back the hood
    and i was talking to you
    and i knew then it would be
    a life long thing
    but i didn't know that we
    we could break a silver lining

    and i'm so sad
    like a good book
    i can't put this day back
    a sorta fairytale
    with you
    a sorta fairytale
    with you

    things you said that day
    up on the 101
    the girl had come undone
    i tried to downplay it
    with a bet about us
    you said that-
    you'd take it
    as long as i could
    i could not erase it

    and i'm so sad
    like a good book
    i can't put this day back
    a sorta fairytale
    with you
    a sorta fairytale
    with you

    and i ride along side
    and i rode along side
    you then
    and i rode along side
    till you lost me there
    in the open road
    and i rode along side
    till the honey spread
    itself so thin
    for me to break your bread
    for me to take your word
    i had to steal it

    way up north i took my day
    all in all was a pretty nice
    day and i put the hood
    right back where
    you could taste heaven
    perfectly
    feel out the summer breeze
    didn't know when we'd be back
    and i, i don't
    didn't think
    we'd end up like
    like this

    and i'm so sad
    like a good book
    i can't put this
    day back
    a sorta fairytale
    with you
    a sorta fairytale
    with you

    i could pick back up
    whenever i feel

    um a little bit of both although here is one that didn't make me think of the weekend at all! I love this song and it was the first random song to meet me when I switched on winamp.



    Madonna, live to tell

    I have a tale to tell
    Sometimes it gets so hard to hide it well
    I was not ready for the fall
    Too blind to see the writing on the wall

    A man can tell a thousand lies
    I've learned my lesson well
    Hope I live to tell
    The secret I have learned, 'till then
    It will burn inside of me

    I know where beauty lives
    I've seen it once, I know the warmth she gives
    The light that you could never see
    It shines inside, you can't take that from me

    A man can tell a thousand lies
    I've learned my lesson well
    Hope I live to tell
    The secret I have learned, 'till then
    It will burn inside of me

    The truth is never far behind
    You kept it hidden well
    If I live to tell
    The secret I knew then
    Will I ever have the chance again

    If I ran away, I'd never have the strength
    To go very far
    How would they hear the beating of my heart
    Will it grow cold
    The secret that I hide, will I grow old
    How will they hear
    When will they learn
    How will they know

    A man can tell a thousand lies
    I've learned my lesson well
    Hope I live to tell
    The secret I have learned, 'till then
    It will burn inside of me

    The truth is never far behind
    You kept it hidden well
    If I live to tell
    The secret I knew then
    Will I ever have the chance again

    "My Immortal"
    Evanescence

    i'm so tired of being here
    suppressed by all of my childish fears
    and if you have to leave
    i wish that you would just leave
    because your presence still lingers here
    and it won't leave me alone

    these wounds won't seem to heal
    this pain is just too real
    there's just too much that time cannot erase

    when you cried i'd wipe away all of your tears
    when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears
    and i've held your hand through all of these years
    but you still have all of me

    you used to captivate me
    by your resonating light
    but now i'm bound by the life you left behind
    your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
    your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

    these wounds won't seem to heal
    this pain is just too real
    there's just too much that time cannot erase

    when you cried i'd wipe away all of your tears
    when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears
    and i've held your hand through all of these years
    but you still have all of me

    i've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
    and though you're still with me
    i've been alone all along

    I could easily post all the lyrics from this album, and feel pretty much justified in doing so, but I'll try to refrain. Still, this is one of my current favorite songs of my current favorite album. I esp like, and can relate to, the first verse.

    "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

    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

    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

    This is for all those Dave Matthews fans out there...and anyone else who will listen (or read). I love Dave's music, he and his band somehow manage to carry my feelings. No matter my mood, when I listen to DMB, and especially this song, I'm free to flow in emotion of the music...and that is an amazing thing.

    Seek Up
    Dave Matthews Band

    Fall back again, fall back again,
    Fall back again, fall back again

    Oh, life it seems a struggle between
    What we see and what we do
    I'm not going to change my ways
    Just to please you or appease you
    well, look at this crowd, five billion proud
    Willing to punch it out
    Right, wrong, weak, strong
    Ashes to ashes all fall down
    oh, Look around about this round
    About this merry-go-round and round
    If at all God's gaze upon us falls
    His mischievous grin, look at him

    Forget about the reasons and
    The treasons we are seeking
    Forget about the notion that
    Our emotions can be kept away
    Forget about being guilty,
    We are innocent instead
    For soon we will all find our lives swept away

    oh look at me in my fancy car
    and my bank account
    oh, how i wish i could take it all down to my grave
    god knows id save and save
    man take a look again take a look again
    things you have corrected
    in the end they all pile up so tall to one big nothing,
    one big nothing at all

    Forget about the reasons and
    The treasons we are seeking
    Forget about the notion that our emotions can be
    swept away, kept away
    Forget about being guilty, i am innocent instead
    For soon we will all find our lives swept away

    You seek up an emotion
    And your cup is overflowing
    You seek up an emotion,
    Sometimes your well is dry
    You're looking for a monster
    For him to fight your wars for you
    But when he finds his way to you, the devil's not
    Going--ha, ha

    say, oh say
    late at night with TV's hungry child
    his belly swells
    well for the price of a coke or a smoke
    i could Keep alive those hungy eyes
    Take a look again,Take a look again
    everyday things change,
    but basically they stay the same

    Forget about the reasons and
    The treasons we are seeking
    Forget about the notion that our emotions can be
    swept away, kept away
    Forget about being guilty, i am innocent instead
    For soon we will all find our lives swept away

    You seek up an emotion
    And your cup is overflowing
    You seek up an emotion,
    Sometimes your well is dry
    You're looking for a monster
    For him to fight your wars for you
    But when he finds his way to you, the devil's not
    Going--ha, ha

    Default "Walk Away" --Ben Harper

    Some folk/blues from the great Ben Harper, whose music also carries me away.

    Walk Away
    --Ben Harper

    oooo no
    here comes that sun again
    that means another day without you my friend
    and it hurts me to look into the mirror at myself
    and it hurts even more to have to be with somebody else
    and its so hard to do
    and so easy to say
    but sometimes
    sometimes
    you just have to walk away
    walk away

    so many people to love in my life
    why do i worry about one
    but you put the happy in my laughs
    you put the good times into my fun

    and its so hard to do
    and so easy to say
    sometimes
    sometimes
    you just have to walk away
    walk away
    and head for the dorr

    we've tried the goodbye
    so many days
    we walk in the same direction
    so that we could never stray
    they say if you love somebody
    then you have got to set them free
    but i would rather be locked to you than live in this pain and misery
    they say that time will make all this go away
    but its time that has taken my tomorrows and turned them into yesterday
    and once again that rising sun is a droppin on down
    and once again you my friend are no where to be found

    and its so hard to do, and so easy to say
    but sometimes
    sometimes
    you just have to walk away
    walk away
    and head for the door
    you just walk away
    walk away
    walk away.....
    just walk on
    walk on
    turn and head for the door....
    walk away

    FREE YOUR TOES!!!

    Default "Next 100 Years"

    "Next 100 Years"
    Bon Jove

    Time ain't nothing but time
    It's a verse with no rhyme
    It all comes down to you

    Change ain't nothing but change
    Just the faces and the names
    But you know we're gonna make it through

    I'll believe
    When you don't believe in anything

    Chorus:
    I'm gonna hold you 'til your hurt is gone
    Be the shoulder that you're leaning on
    I'll be standing here
    For the next 100 years
    If it all should end tonight
    I'll know it was worth the fight
    And we'll be standing here
    For the next 100 years

    I, when I think that I'm losing my mind
    It all comes back to you

    And you, you know that it's true
    After all we've been through
    There's nothing that I wouldn't do

    Stand by me
    And I would gladly give up everything

    Chorus:
    I'm gonna hold you 'til your hurt is gone
    Be the shoulder that you're leaning on
    I'll be standing here
    For the next 100 years
    If it all should end tonight
    I'll know it was worth the fight
    And we'll be standing here
    For the next 100 years

    I'm gonna hold you 'til your hurt is gone
    Be the shoulder that you're leaning on
    I'll be standing here
    For the next 100 years
    If it all should end tonight
    I'll know it was worth the fight
    And we'll be standing here
    For the next 100 years

    Love Supreme, Robbie WIlliams... I love the lyrics of this one, especially the first two verses!

    Oh it seemed forever stopped today
    All the lonely hearts in london
    Caught a plane and flew away
    And all the best woman are married
    All the handsome men are gay
    You feel deprived

    Yeah are you questioning your size?
    Is there a tumour in your humour,
    Are there bags under your eyes?
    Do you leave dents where you sit,
    Are you getting on a bit?
    Will you survive you must survive

    When there's no love in town
    This new century keeps bringing you down
    All the places you have been
    Trying to find a love supreme
    A love supreme

    Oh what are you really looking for?
    Another partner in your life to abuse and to adore?
    Is it lovey dovey stuff
    Do you need a bit of rough? get on your knees
    Yeah turn down the love songs that you hear
    Cause you can't avoid the sentiment
    That echoes in your ear
    Saying love will stop the pain
    Saying love will kill the fear
    Do you believe you must believe

    I spy with my little eye
    Something beginning with (ah) got my back up
    And now she's screaming
    So I've got to turn the track up
    Sit back and watch the royalties stack up
    I know this girl she likes to switch teams
    And I'm a friend but I'm living for a love supreme


    Come and live a love supreme
    Don't let it get you down
    Everybody lives for love

    The Bangles--I'll Set You Free
    (S. Hoffs/E. Lowen/D. Navarro)

    I hear you through the wire
    The words all sound like noise
    What happened to the fire in your voice

    Don't try to hide the distance
    It's just too big to ignore
    We work it out like business
    It won't work anymore

    I remember eyes that shine
    As they looked so hard back into mine
    Now it's just a memory
    So I'll set you free
    I'll set you free

    Still sometimes late at night
    Moonlight comes into my window
    I make believe it's how it used to be

    We made it look so easy
    We never tried to resist
    Somehow you stopped believing
    Somehow we've come to this

    I remember eyes that shined
    As they looked so hard back into mine
    Now it's just a memory
    So I'll set you free

    I remember words that fell
    Like coins into a wishing well
    It was never meant to be
    So I'll set you free
    I'll set you free

    So now that I must go on
    What more can I do
    What good is being strong
    When all I ever really want is you
