Metallica - Nothing Else Matters  

   

 

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
For ever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No nothing else matters

Queen - The Show Must Go On  

   

 

Empty spaces
What are we living for?
Abandoned places
I guess we know the score
On and on, does anybody know
what we are looking for?

Another hero
Another mindless crime
Behind the curtain
In the pantomime
Hold the line, does anybody know
what we are living for?

The show must go on
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking,
but my smile still stays on

Whatever happens
I'll leave it all to chance
Another heartache
Another failed romance
On and on, does anybody know
what we are living for?

I guess I'm learning
I must be warmer now
I'll soon be turning
round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
but inside, in the dark
I'm aching to be free

My soul is painted like the wings of
butterflies
Fairytales of yesterday will grow but never
die
I can fly, my friends

The show must go on (yeah)
The show must go on
I'll face it with a grin
I'm never giving in
On with the show

Ooh, I'll top the bill, I'll overkill

I have to find the will to carry on
(On with the show)

Kansas - Dust In The Wind  

   

 

I close my eyes only for a moment,
And the moment's gone.
All my dreams pass before my eyes,
A curiosity.

Dust in the wind,
All they are is dust in the wind.

Same old song just a drop of water
In an endless sea.
All we do crumbles to the ground
Though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind,
All they are is dust in the wind.

Now don't hang on, nothing lasts forever
But the earth and sky.
It slips away and all your money
Won't another minute buy

Dust in the wind,
All they are is dust in the wind.

Everything is dust in the wind

Fastball - The way  

   

 

They made up their minds
And they started packing
They left before the sun came up that day
An exit to eternal summer slacking
But where were they going
Without ever knowing the way?
They drank up the wine
And they got to talking
They now had more important things to say
And when the car broke down
They started walking
Where were they going
 Without ever knowing the way?

Anyone could see
The road that they walk on is paved in gold
And It's always summer,
they'll never get cold
They'll Never get hungry
They'll never get old and gray
You can see their shadows
Wandering off somewhere
They won't make it home
But they really don't care
They wanted the highway
They're happy there today, today

The children woke up
And they couldn't find 'em
They Left before the sun came up that day
They just drove off
And left it all behind 'em
But Where were they going
Without ever knowing the way?

Anyone could see
The road that they walk on is paved in gold
And It's always summer,
they'll never get cold
They'll Never get hungry
They'll never get old and gray
You can see their shadows
Wandering off somewhere
They won't make it home
But they really don't care
They wanted the highway
They're happy there today, today

Leonard Cohen - Take This Waltz   

   

 

Now in Vienna there's ten pretty women
There's a shoulder where Death comes to cry
There's a lobby with nine hundred windows
There's a tree where the doves go to die
There's a piece that was torn from the morning
And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take this waltz with the clamp on its jaws

Oh I want you, I want you, I want you
On a chair with a dead magazine
In the cave at the tip of the lily
In some hallways where love's never been
On a bed where the moon has been sweating
In a cry filled with footsteps and sand
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take its broken waist in your hand

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz
With its very own breath of brandy and Death
Dragging its tail in the sea

There's a concert hall in Vienna
Where your mouth had a thousand reviews
There's a bar where the boys have stopped talking
They've been sentenced to death by the blues
Ah, but who is it climbs to your picture
With a garland of freshly cut tears?
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take this waltz it's been dying for years

There's an attic where children are playing
Where I've got to lie down with you soon
In a dream of Hungarian lanterns
In the mist of some sweet afternoon
And I'll see what you've chained to your sorrow
All your sheep and your lilies of snow
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
With its "I'll never forget you, you know!";

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz ...
With its very own breath of brandy and Death
Dragging its tail in the sea

And I'll dance with you in Vienna
I'll be wearing a river's disguise
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
My mouth on the dew of your thighs
And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook,
With the photographs there, and the moss
And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty
My cheap violin and my cross
And you'll carry me down on your dancing
To the pools that you lift on your wrist
Oh my love, Oh my love
Take this waltz, take this waltz
It's yours now.
It's all that there is.

 

Leonard Cohen "Take This Waltz"

 

 

 

 

Leonard Cohen - Dance Me To The End Of Love  

   

 

Dance me to your beauty
With a burning violin
Dance me through the panic
Till I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch
And be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Oh let me see your beauty
When the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving
Like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly
What I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the wedding now,
Dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly
And dance me very long
We're both of us beneath our love,
We're both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children
Who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains
That our kisses have out worn
Raise a tent of shelter now,
Though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty
With a burning violin
Dance me through the panic
Till I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch
And be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Leonard Cohen - A Thousand Kisses Deep  

 

The ponies run, the girls so young,
The odds are there to beat.
You win a while,
And then it's done
Your little winning streak.
And summoned now to deal
With your invincible defeat,
You live your life
As if it's real,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

I'm turning tricks, I'm getting fixed,
I'm back on Boogie Street.
You lose your grip,
And then you slip
Into the Masterpiece.
And maybe
I had miles to drive,
And promises to keep:
You ditch it all
To stay alive,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

And sometimes, when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

Confined to sex, we pressed against
The limits of the sea:
I saw there were no oceans left
For scavengers like me.
I made it to the forward deck,
I blessed our remnant fleet
And then consented to be wrecked,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

I'm turning tricks, I'm getting fixed,
I'm back on Boogie Street.
I guess they won't exchange the gifts
That you were meant to keep.
And quiet is the thought of you,
The file on you complete,
Except what we forgot to do,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

And sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

The ponies run, the girls are young,
The odds are there to beat

King Crimson - Lady Of The Dancing Water  

 

Grass in your hair stretched like a lion in the sun
Restlessly turned moistened your mouth with your tongue.
Pouring my wine in your eyes caged mine glowing
Touching your face my fingers strayed knowing.
I called you lady of the dancing water.

Blown autumn leaves shed to the fire where you laid me
Burn slow to ash just as my days now seem to be.
I feel you still always your eyes glowing
Remembered hours salt, earth and flowers flowing
Farewell my lady of the dancing water.

 

King Crimson "Lady Of The Dancing Water"

 

 

 

 

King Crimson - Book Of Saturday   

 

If I only could deceive you
Forgetting the game
Every time I try to leave you
You laugh just the same

'Cause my wheels never touch the road
And the jumble of lies we told
Just returns to my back to weigh me down...

We lay cards upon the table
The backs of our hands
And I swear I like your people
The boys in the band

Reminiscences gone astray
Coming back to enjoy the fray
In a tangle of night and daylight sounds...

All completeness in the morning
Asleep on your side
I'll be waking up the crewmen
Banana-boat ride

She responds like a limousine
Brought alive on the silent screen
To the shuddering breath of yesterday...

There's the succour of the needy
Incredible scenes
I'll believe you in the future
Your life and death dreams

As the cavalry of despair
Takes a stand in the lady's hair
For the favour of making sweet sixteen...

You make my life and times
A book of bluesy Saturdays
And I have to chose...

 

King Crimson "Book Of Saturday"

 

 

 

 

King Crimson - Exiles  

 

Now...in this faraway land
Strange...that the palms of my hands
Should be damp with expectancy

Spring...and the air's turning mild
City lights...and the glimpse of a child
Of the alleyway infantry

Friends...do they know what I mean
Rain...and the gathering green
Of an afternoon out-of-town

But Lord I had to go
My trail was laid too slow behind me
To face the call of fame
Or make a drunkard 's name for me
Though now this other life
Has brought a different understanding
And from these endless days
Shall come a broader sympathy
And though I count the hours
To be alone 's no injury...

My home...was a place near the sand
Cliffs...and a military band
Blew and air of normality

 

King Crimson "Exiles"

Lauren Christy - The Colour of The Night  

   

 

You and I moving in the dark
Bodies close but souls apart
Shadowed smiles, secrets unrevealed
I need to know the way you feel
I give you everything I am and
Everything I want to be
I put it in your hands
If you could open up to me, oh!
Cant we ever get beyond this wall?
Cause all I want is just once to see you in the light
But you hide behind the color of the night

I cant go on burning from the past
Love has torn away this mask
And alls like clouds, like rain
Im drowning and I blame it all on you
Ive lost. God, save me!

I give you everything I am and
Everything I want to be
I put it in your hands
If you could open up to me oh
Cant we ever get beyond this wall

Cause all I want is just once to see you in the light
But you hide behind the color of the night

God save me
everything I am and
Everything I want to be
Cant we ever get beyond this wall
Cause all I want is just once forever and again
Im waiting for you
Im standing in the light
But you hide behind the color of the night.
Please, come out from the color of the night

Beatles - Help!  

   

 

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


When I was younger, so much
younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.

But now these days are gone,
I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind
and opened up the doors.

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

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

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

When I was younger, so much
younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help
in any way.

But now these days are gone,
I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind
and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you
being round.
Help me, get my feet back on

Won't you please, please help me?

Beatles - All my loving  

   

 

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you,
Tomorrow I'll miss you,
Remember I'll always be true.
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day,
And I'll send all my loving to you.

I pretend that I'm kissing
The lips I am missing
And hope that my dreams will come true.
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you.

All my loving I will send to you,
All my loving, darling, I'll be true.

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you,
Tomorrow I'll miss you,
Remember I'll always be true.
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day,
And I'll send all my loving to you.

All my loving I will send to you,
All my loving darling I'll be true.

Beatles - And I love her  

   

 

I give her all my love,
That's all I do.
And if you saw my love
You'd love her too,
I love her.

She gives me everything
And tenderly
The kiss my love brings
She brings to me,
And I love her.

A love like ours
Could never die
As long as I
Have you near me.

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark in the sky,
I know this love of mine
Will never die,
And I love her.

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark in the sky,
I know this love of mine
Will never die,
And I love her.

Beatles -  I'll be back 

 

You know if you break my heart I'll go
But I'll be back again
'Cos I told you once before goodbye
But I came back again.

I love you so-oh
I'm the one who wants you,
Yes, I'm the one who want you,
Oh-oh.

Oh, you could find better things to do
Than to break my heart again,
This time I will try to show that I'm
Not trying to pretend.

I thought that you would realize
That if I run away from you,
That you would want me too,
But I've got a big surprise, oh-oh.

Oh, you could find better things to do
Than to break my heart again,
This time I will try to show that I'm
Not trying to pretend.

I wanna go
But I hate to leave you,
You know I hate to leave you,
Oh-oh.

Oh, you, if you'll break my heart I'll go
But I'll be back again.

Beatles - Norwegian wood  

   

 

I once had a girl or should I say she once had me,
She showed me her room isn't it good, Norwegian wood.
She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere,
So I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair.

I sat on a rug biding my time drinking her wine,
We've talked until two and then she said it's time for bed,

She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh,
I told her I didn't and crawled off to sleep in the bath.

And when I awoke I was alone this bird has flown,
So I lit a fire isn't it good, Norwegian wood.

Beatles - I'll follow the sun  

   

 

One day you'll look to see I've gone
But tomorrow may rain so I'll follow the sun.

Some day you'll know I was the one
But tomorrow may rain so I'll follow the sun.

And now the time has come and so, my love, I must go,
And though I lose a friend in the end you will know.

One day you'll find that I have gone
But tomorrow may rain so I'll follow the sun,
Yes, tomorrow may rain so I'll follow the sun.

And now the time has come and so, my love, I must go
And though I lose a friend, in the end you will know.

One day you'll find that I have gone
But tomorrow may rain so I'll follow the sun,
Yes, tomorrow may rain so I'll follow the sun

You and me
We used to be together
Every day together always
I really feel
I'm losing my best friend
I can't believe
This could be the end
It looks as though you're letting go
And if it's real,
Well I don't want to know

Don't speak
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

Don't speak
I know what you're thinking
I don't need your reasons
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

Our memories
They can be inviting
But some are altogether
Mighty frightening
As we die, both you and I
With my head in my hands
I sit and cry

Don't speak
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts
Don't speak
I know what you're thinking
I don't need your reasons
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts
It's all ending
I gotta stop pretending who we are...

You and me
I can see us dying ... are we?
Don't speak
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts
Don't speak
I know what you're thinking
I don't need your reasons
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

Gorky Park - Two candles   

 

Loneliness is my only guest
Who visits me alone at night
When it comes I light two candles
Just the way it was
And pretend the flames become your eyes

Emptiness is a friend I guess
The shadow played upon the wall
If I let the candles take me
I can see your face
And remember hearing someone call your name

My candles are crying
My candles are crying
They're crying for you
They're waiting for you
I'm waiting for you

Is it you knocking at my door
Or maybe just a ghostly wind
How I wish that you were here
Sitting by my side
And you'll bring me back to life again tonight

Sting - Shape Of My Heart  

   

 

He deals the cards as a meditation
And those he plays never suspect
He doesn't play for the money he wins
He don't play for respect
He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of a probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart

He may play the jack of diamonds
He may lay the queen of spades
He may conceal a king in his hand
While the memory of it fades

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart

And if I told you that I loved you
You'd maybe think there's something wrong
I'm not a man of too many faces
The mask I wear is one

Well, those who speak know nothin'
And find out to their cost
Like those who curse their luck in too many places
And those who fear are lost

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart

Sting - Mad About You  

   

 

A stone's throw from Jerusalem
I walked a lonely mile in the moonlight
And though a million stars were shining
My heart was lost on a distant planet
That whirls around the April moon
Whirling in an arc of sadness

I'm lost without you I'm lost without you
Though all my kingdoms turn to sand
And fall into the sea
I'm mad about you
I'm mad about you

And from the dark secluded valleys
I heard the ancient songs of sadness
But every step I thought of you
Every footstep only you
And every star a grain of sand
The leavings of a dried up ocean
Tell me, how much longer?
How much longer?

They say a city in the desert lies
The vanity of an ancient king
But the city lies in broken pieces
Where the wind howls and the vultures sing
These are the works of man
This is the sum of our ambition
It would make a prison of my life
If you became another's wife
With every prison blown to dust
My enemies walk free
I'm mad about you
I'm mad about you

And I have never in my life
Felt more alone than I do now
Although I claim dominions over all I see
It means nothing to me
There are no victories
In all our histories, without love

A stone's throw from Jerusalem
I walked a lonely mile in the moonlight
And through a million stars were shining
My heart was lost on a distant planet
That whirls around the April moon
Whirling in an arc of sadness
I'm lost without you
I'm lost without you

And though you hold the keys to ruin
Of everything I see
With every prison blown to dust,
My enemies walk free
Though all my kingdoms turn to sand
And fall into the sea
I'm mad about you
I'm mad about you

Kansas - Dust In The Wind  

   

 

Are you lonesome tonight,
do you miss me tonight?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memory stray to a bright summer day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?
Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there?
Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

Elvis Presley - Can't Help Falling in Love 

 

 

Wise men say only fools rush in
but I can't help falling in love with you
Shall I stay
would it be a sin
If I can't falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life, too
for I can't falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life, too
for I can't falling in love with you
for I can't falling in love with you

Fool's Garden - Probably  

 

 

Dan is drinking coffee
Mary's drinking tea
Betty's having breakfast
In the plastic surgery
Some say she's a beauty
Some may say she's mad
But she doesn't care what people say
And dyes her red hair black

Cause
You don't know what they will say
You probably do it your own way
You don't know what they will see
Absolutely nothing! - Probably!

Tom is vegetarian
A little fool they say
His father wants to change his mind
He's trying every day
Anne is loving women
Fred is loving men
And everybody shakes their head
Cause none understands

You don't know what they will say
You probably do it your own way
You don't know what they will see
Absolutely nothing! - Probably!

In the corner plays a gypsy girl
With indians and with jews
Penny sings along with them
Though she wears different shoes

You don't know what they will say
You probably do it your own way
You don't know what they will see
Absolutely nothing! - Probably!
You don't know what they will do
None ever knows, you don't know too
You don't know what they will say
You probably don't need another way

Fool's Garden - Lemon Tree  

 

 

I'm sitting here in the boring room
It's just another rainy Sunday afternoon
I'm wasting my time
I got nothing to do
I'm hanging around
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I'm driving around in my car
I'm driving too fast
I'm driving too far
I'd like to change my point of view
I feel so lonely
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me about the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree

I'm sitting here
I miss the power
I'd like to go out taking a shower
But there's a heavy cloud inside my head
I feel so tired
Put myself into bed
While nothing ever happens and I wonder

Isolation is not good for me
Isolation I don't want to sit on the lemon-tree
I'm steppin' around in the desert of joy
Baby anyhow I'll get another toy
And everything will happen and you wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me about the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree

Radiohead - Creep  

 

 

When you were here before,
Сouldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel,
Yr skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
And I wish I was special,
You're so fucking special

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

I don't 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
I'm not around
You're so fucking special,
I wish I was special

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

She's running out again
She's running out, she run, run, run, ru-u-
-u-un!
Ru-u-u-un!..

Whatever makes you happy,
whatever you want
You're so facking special,
I wish I was special...

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

Radiohead - Exit Music  

 

 

Wake from your sleep
Then dry up your tears
Today we escape
We escape

Pack and get dressed
Before your father hears us
Before all hell
Breaks loose

Breathe keep breathing
Don't loose your nerves
Breathe keep breathing
I can't do this alone

Sing us a song a song to keep us warm
There's such a chill
Such a chill

You can laugh
A spineless laugh
We hope the rules and wisdom choke
you

Now we are one in everlasting peace

We hope that you choke that you choke

Nina Simone - I Put A Spell On You  

 

 

I put a spell on you
'Cause you're mine

You better stop the things you do
I ain't lying
No I ain't lying

You know I can't stand it
You're running around
You know better, daddy
I can't stand it cause you put me down

I put a spell on you
Because you're mine
You're mine

I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you anyhow
And I don't care

Mamas and the Papas - California Dreaming  

 

 

All the leaves are brown
And the sky is gray
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day
I'd be safe and warm
If I was in L. A.

California dreamin
On such a winter's day

Stopped in to a church
I passed along the way
Well I got down on my knees
And I pretend to pray
You know the preacher likes the cold
He knows I'm gonna stay

California dreamin'
On such a winter's day

All the leaves are brown
And the sky is gray
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day
If I didn't tell her
I could leave today

California dreamin'
On such a winter's day

Crash Test Dummies - Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm  

 

 

Once there was this kid who
Got into an accident and couldn't come to school
But when he finally came back
His hair had turned from black into bright white
He said that it was from when
The cars had smashed him so hard

Once there was this girl who
Wouldn't go and change with the girls in the change room
But when they finally made her
They saw birthmarks all over her body
She couldn't quite explain it
They'd always just been there

But both the girl and boy were glad
'Cause one kid had it worse than that

'Cause then there was this boy whose
Parents made him come directly home right after school
And when they went to the church
They shook and lurched all over the church floor
He couldn't quite explain
They'd always just gone there

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

Animals - The House of the Rising Sun  

  

 

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
Sewed my new blue jeans
My father was gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and a trunk
And the only time he'll be satisfied
Is when he's all a-drunk

Oh mother, tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the house of the Rising Sun

Well I've got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm going back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one

Bob Dylan -  Blowin' In The Wind  

 

 

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, 'n' how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps on the sand?
Yes, 'n' how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friends, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind

How many years can mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea?
Yes, 'n' how many years can some people exit
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, 'n' how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn't see?
The answer, my friends, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind

How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, 'n' how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it takes till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin in the wind,
The answer is blowin in the wind

Bob Dylan - Mr. Tambourine Man  

 

 

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

Though I know that evenin's empire has returned into sand,
Vanished from my hand,
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping.
My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet,
I have no one to meet
And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming.

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

Take me on a trip upon your magic swirling ship,
My senses have been stripped, my hands can't feel to grip,
My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels To be wanderin'.
I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade
Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way,
I promise to go under it.

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

Though you might hear laughing, spinning, swinging madly across the sun,
It's not aimed at anyone, it's just escapin' on the run
And but for the sky there are no fences facing.
And if you hear vague traces of skippin' reels of rhyme
To your tambourine in time, it's just a ragged clown behind,
I wouldn't pay it any mind, it's just a shadow you're
Seein' that he's chasing.

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

Then take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind,
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves,
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach,
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands,
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves,
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you

Bob Dylan - A Rolling Stonen  

 

 

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you?
People'd call, say, "Beware doll, you're bound to fall"
You thought they were all kiddin' you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hangin' out
Now you don't talk so loud
Now you don't seem so proud
About having to be scrounging for your next meal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

You've gone to the finest school all right, Miss Lonely
But you know you only used to get juiced in it
And nobody has ever taught you how to live on the street
And now you find out you're gonna have to get used to it
You said you'd never compromise
With the mystery tramp, but now you realize
He's not selling any alibis
As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
And ask him do you want to make a deal?


How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

You never turned around to see the frowns on the jugglers and the clowns
When they all come down and did tricks for you
You never understood that it ain't no good
You shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you
You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat
Ain't it hard when you discover that
He really wasn't where it's at
After he took from you everything he could steal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people
They're drinkin', thinkin' that they got it made
Exchanging all kinds of precious gifts and things
But you'd better lift your diamond ring, you'd better pawn it babe
You used to be so amused
At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
Go to him now, he calls you, you can't refuse
When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose
You're invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone

Bob Dylan - She Belongs To Me   

 

 

She's got everything she needs,
She's an artist, she don't look back.
She's got everything she needs,
She's an artist, she don't look back.
She can take the dark out of the nighttime
And paint the daytime black.

You will start out standing
Proud to steal her anything she sees.
You will start out standing
Proud to steal her anything she sees.
But you will wind up peeking through her keyhole
Down upon your knees.

She never stumbles,
She's got no place to fall.
She never stumbles,
She's got no place to fall.
She's nobody's child,
The Law can't touch her at all.

She wears an Egyptian ring
That sparkles before she speaks.
She wears an Egyptian ring
That sparkles before she speaks.
She's a hypnotist collector,
You are a walking antique.

Bow down to her on Sunday,
Salute her when her birthday comes.
Bow down to her on Sunday,
Salute her when her birthday comes.
For Halloween give her a trumpet
And for Christmas, buy her a drum.

 

Bob Dylan "She Belongs To Me"

 

 

 

 

Bob Dylan - I Want You  

 

 

The guilty undertaker sighs,
The lonesome organ grinder cries,
The silver saxophones say I should refuse you.
The cracked bells and washed-out horns
Blow into my face with scorn,
But it's not that way,
I wasn't born to lose you.
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad,
Honey, I want you.


The drunken politician leaps
Upon the street where mothers weep
And the saviors who are fast asleep,
They wait for you.
And I wait for them to interrupt
Me drinkin' from that broken cup
And ask me to
Open up the gate for you.
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad,
Honey, I want you.

Now all my fathers, they've gone down,
True love they've been without it.
But all their daughters put me down
'Cause I don't think about it.


Well, I return to the Queen of Spades
And talk with my chambermaid.
She knows that I'm not afraid
To look at her
She is good to me
And there's nothing she doesn't see.
She knows where I'd like to be
But it doesn't matter.
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad
Honey, I want you.

Now your dancing child with his Chinese suit,
He spoke to me, I took his flute.
No, I wasn't very cute to him,
Was I?
But I did it, though, because he lied
Because he took you for a ride
And because tine was on his side
And because I...
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad
Honey, I want you.

 

Bob Dylan "I Want You"

 

 

 

 

Bob Dylan - Just Like a Woman  

 

 

Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
Everybody knows
That Baby's got new clothes
But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
Have fallen from her curls.
She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl.

Queen Mary, she's my friend
Yes, I believe I'll go see her again
Nobody has to guess
That Baby can't be blessed
Till she sees finally that she's like all the rest
With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls.
She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl.

It was raining from the first
And I was dying there of thirst
So I came in here
And your long-time curse hurts
But what's worse
Is this pain in here
I can't stay in here
Ain't it clear that

I just can't fit
Yes, I believe it's time for us to quit
When we meet again
Introduced as friends
Please don't let on that you knew me when
I was hungry and it was your world.
Ah, you fake just like a woman, yes, you do
You make love just like a woman, yes, you do
Then you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.

Tom Waits - (Looking For) The Heart of Saturday Nigh  

 

 

Well you gassed her up
Behind the wheel
With your arm around your sweet one
In your Oldsmobile
Barrelin' down the boulevard
You're looking for the heart of Saturday night

And you got paid on Friday
And your pockets are jinglin'
And you see the lights
You get all tinglin' cause you're cruisin' with a 6
And you're looking for the heart of Saturday night

Then you comb your hair
Shave your face
Tryin to wipe out evry trace
All the other days
In the week you know that this'll be the Saturday
You're reachin' your peak

Stoppin' on the red
You're goin' on the green
'Cause tonight 'll be like nothin'
You've ever seen
And you're barrelin' down the boulevard
Lookin' for the heart of Saturday night

Tell me is the crack of the poolballs, neon buzzin?
Telephone's ringin'; it's your second cousin
Is it the barmaid that's smilin' from the corner of her eye?
Magic of the melancholy tear in your eye.

Makes it kind of quiver down in the core
'Cause you're dreamin' of them Saturdays that came before
And now you're stumblin'
You're stumblin' onto the heart of Saturday night

Well you gassed her up
And you're behind the wheel
With your arm around your sweet one
In your Oldsmobile
Barrellin' down the boulevard,
You're lookin' for the heart of Saturday night

Is the crack of the poolballs, neon buzzin?
Telephone's ringin'; it's your second cousin
And the barmaid is smilin' from the corner of her eye
Magic of the melancholy tear in your eye.

Makes it kind of special down in the core
And you're dreamin' of them Saturdays that came before
It's found you stumblin'
Stumblin' onto the heart of Saturday night
And you're stumblin'
Stumblin onto the heart of Saturday night

Louis Armstrong - What a wonderful world  

 

 

I see trees of green, red roses, too
I see them bloom, for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue, and clouds of white,
The bright blessed day,
The dark sacred night
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

The colour of the rainbow,
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces,
Of people going by
I see friends shaking hands,
Saying "How do you do?"
They're really sayin': "I love you".

I hear babies cry,
I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more,
Than I'll ever know
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world,
Yes, I think to myself,
What a wonderful world
