Midnight Blues

Gary Moore

It's the darkest hour

Of the darkest night

It's a million miles

From the morning light

Can't get no sleep

Don't know what to do

I've got those midnight blues

When the shadows fall

I feel the night closing in

There must be some reason

For this mood I'm getting in

Can't get no sleep

Don't know what to do

I've got those midnight blues

Every evening after sundown

As the light begins to fade

I feel so low, but I just don't know

Why these blues won't go away

Every evening after sundown

As the light begins to fade

I feel so low, but I just don't know

Why these blues won't go away

It's the darkest hour

Of the darkest night

It's a million miles

To the morning light

Can't get no sleep

Don't know what to do

I've got those midnight blues

I've got those midnight blues

I've got those midnight blues

I've got those midnight blues

Doesn't Remind me

Audioslave

I walk the streets of Japan till I get lost

'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

With a graveyard tan an' carrying a cross

It doesn't remind me of anything

I like studying faces in a parking lot

'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

I like travelin' backwards in the fog

'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

The things that I've loved, things that I've lost

Things I've held sacred that I've dropped

I won't lie no more you can bet

I don't want to learn what I'll need to forget

I like gypsy moths and radio talk

'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

I like gospel music and canned applause

'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

I like colorful clothing in the sun

'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

I like hammering nails, and speaking in tongues

'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

The things that I've loved, things that I've lost

Things I've held sacred that I've dropped

I won't lie no more you can bet

I don't want to learn what I'll need...

Bend and shape me, I love the way you are

Slow and sweetly, like never before

Calm and sleeping, we won't stir up the past

So discreetly, we won't look back

The things that I've loved, things that I've lost

Things I've held sacred that I've dropped

I won't lie no more you can bet

Don't want to learn what I'll need...

I like throwing my voice and breaking guitars

'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

I like playing in the sand what's mine is ours

If it doesn't remind me of anything

Hey TJ..

I Wouldn't Wanna be Like You

Alan Parsons Project

If I had a mind to

I wouldn't wanna think like you

And if I had a time to

I wouldn't wanna talk to you

I don't care

What you do

I wouldn't want to be like you

If I was high class

I wouldn't need a buck to pass

And if I was a fall guy

I wouldn't need no alibi

I don't care

What you do

I wouldn't want to be like you

whoa, whoa, whoa

Back on the bottom line

Diggin' for a lousy dime

If I hit a mother lode

I'd cover anything that showed

I don't care

What you do

I wouldn't want to be like you

Falling Off the Edge of the World

Black Sabbath

I think about closing the door

And lately I think of it more

I'm living well out of my time

I feel like I'm losing my mind

I should be at the table round

A servant of the crown

The keeper of the sign

To sparkle and to shine

Never, no never again

Listen to me and believe what I say if you can

Never, this is the end

You know I've seen the faces of doom

And I'm only a man

Help me

Tell me I'm sane

I feel a change in the earth and the wind

And the rain Save me

By turning away

You know, I've seen some visions of Hell

And I've heard what they say

I've got to be strong, oh, oh,

I'm falling off the edge of the world, mm

Think you're safe, but you're wrong

We are falling off the edge of the world

Look up in danger

Nowhere to run

Seems like desperate measures but sometimes

It's got to be done

Over, it's over at last

And the message inside is we feel the new life

From the past

We're falling off the edge of the world

Yes, the edge of the world

It's the end of the world

Fits Ya Good

Bryan Adams

Waitin' here

For the workin' day to end,

Five o'clock and those walls

just movin' closer

But you don't know like I know better

Did all that I could

Now fits ya good,

It fits ya good,

Fits ya good

Fits you good

Was a time

You were bringin' me down,

But I know

It's just the way you look at life,

But you don't know like I know, baby,

I did all that I could,

Now fits ya good,

Yeah it fits ya good,

Fits ya good

Fits ya good

'Cause you don't know, oh no,

I did all that I could,

Now fits ya good,

Fits ya good,

It fits ya good

Fits ya good.

Fits you good

Flake

Jack Johnson

I know she said it's alright

But you can make it up next time

I know she knows it's not right

There ain't no use in lying

Maybe she thinks I know something

Maybe maybe she thinks its fine

Maybe she knows something I don't

I'm so, I'm so tired, I'm so tired of trying

It seems to me that maybe,

It pretty much always means no

So don't tell me you might just let it go

And often times we're lazy

It seems to stand in my way

Cause no one no not no one

Likes to be let down

I know she loves the sunrise

No longer sees it with her sleeping eyes

And I know that when she said she's gonna try

Well it might not work because of other ties and

I know she usually has some other ties

And I wouldn't want to break 'em, nah, I wouldn't want to break 'em

Maybe she'll help me to untie this but

Until then well, I'm gonna have to lie too

It seems to me that maybe

It pretty much always means no

So don't tell me you might just let it go

And often times we're lazy

It seems to stand in my way

Cause no one no not no one

Likes to be let down

It seems to me that maybe

It pretty much always means no

So don't tell me you might just let it go

The harder that you try baby, the further you'll fall

Even with all the money in the whole wide world

Please please please don't pass me

Please please please don't pass me

Please please please don't pass me by

Everything you know about me now baby you gonna have to change

You gonna have to call it by a brand new name

Please please please don't drag me

Please please please don't drag me

Please please please don't drag me down

Just like a tree down by the water baby I shall not move

Even after all the silly things you do

Please please please don't drag me

Please please please don't drag me

Please please please don't drag me down

Just Like You

3 Days Grace

I could be mean

I could be angry

You know I could be just like you

I could be fake

I could be stupid

You know I could be just like you

You thought you were standing beside me

You were only in my way

You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

You thought you were there to guide me

You were only in my way

You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

You thought you were there to guide me

You were only in my way

You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

I could be cold

I could be ruthless

You know I could be just like you

I could be weak

I could be senseless

You know I could be just like you

You thought you were standing beside me

You were only in my way

You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

You thought you were there to guide me

You were only in my way

You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

You thought you were there to guide me

You were only in my way

You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

On my own, cause I can't take living with you

I'm alone, so I won't turn out like you

Want me to

You thought you were standing beside me

You were only in my way

You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

You thought you were there to guide me

You were only in my way

You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

You thought you were there to guide me

You were only in my way

You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

I could be mean

I could be angry

You know I could be just like you

Killing Yourself to Live

Black Sabbath

Well people look and people stare

Well I don't think that I even care

You work your life away and what do they give?

You're only killing yourself to live

Killing yourself to live

Just take a look around you what do you see

Pain, suffering and misery

It's not the way that the world was meant

It's a pity you don't understand

Killing yourself to live

I'm telling you

Believe in me

Nobody else will tell you

Open your eyes

And see the lies, oh yeah

You think I'm crazy and baby

I know that it's true

Before that you know it I think

That you'll go crazy too

I don't know if I'm up or down

Whether black is white or blue is brown

The colors of my life are all different somehow

Little boy blue's a big girl now

So you think it's me who's strange

But you've never had to make the change

Never give your trust away

You'll end up paying till your dying day

Shadow on the Sun

Audioslave

Once upon a time, I was of the mind

To lay your burden down

Leave you where you stood

You'd believed I could

You'd seen it done before

I could read your thoughts

Tell you what you saw

And never say a word

But now all that is gone

Over with and done, never to return

And I can tell you why

People die alone

I can tell you I'm

A shadow on the sun

Staring at the loss

Looking for a cause

And never really sure

Nothing but a hole

To live without a soul

And nothing to be learned

And I can tell you why

People go insane

I can show you how

You could do the same

I can tell you why

The end will never come

I can tell you I'm

A shadow on the sun

Shapes of every size

Move behind my eyes

Doors inside my head

Bolted from within

Every drop of flame

Lights a candle in

Memory of the one

Who lived inside my skin

And I can tell you why

People go insane

I can show you how

You could do the same

I can tell you why

The end will never come

I can tell you I'm

A shadow on the sun

Take me Away

Blue Oyster Cult

Strange shapes light up the night

I've never seen 'em though I hope I might

Don't ask if they are real

The men in black, their lips are sealed

Fantasy fills my mind

To leave this place before my time

Release myself from earthly care

My dream may be your nightmare

I turn my hopes up to the sky

I'd like to know before I die

Memories will slowly fade

I lift my eyes and say

Come on take me away

Come on take me away

Come here girl close to me

A thousand stars your eyes can see

First one we see tonight

I wish I may I wish I might

I lift my eyes and say

Come on take me away

Don't Misunderstand Me

Rossington Collins Band

Oh well I know where you're goin'

I see where you've been

Don't you know by now

you never take life on the chin?

Still you sit and wonder

why the past is gone

Baby, you'll go under

if you don't carry on

Don't misunderstand me

I realize it ain't easy to take

But you've been hidin'

and I've been ridin' like

the wind to find you, hey

Just you

I don't need no promises

just tell me the truth

Mister, keep it honest

that's all I ask of you

Don't be second-guessin'

'bout where you want to be

Baby count your blessings

'cause you won't find one like me

Don't misunderstand me

I realize it ain't easy to take

But you've been hidin'

And I've been ridin' like

the wind to find you

Well now lady put your dress on

grab them fancy shoes

Honey I'm ready and waiting on you

Time is surely wastin'

we've so much to do

We're both too smart to be fakin'

And I know it doesn't

matter which road we take

Or if it's your way or my way

Well lady let me tell you

what we're gonna do (uh huh)

We're gonna ride every highway

Don't misunderstand me

Babe I realize it ain't easy to take

But you've been hidin'

And I've been ridin' like

the wind to find you

To find you

To find you

To find you

To find you

The Year of the Cat - Al Stewart

On a morning from a Bogart movie

In a country where they turn back time

You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre

Contemplating a crime

She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running

Like a watercolor in the rain

Don't bother asking for explanations

She'll just tell you that she came

In the year of the cat

She doesn't give you time for questions

As she locks up your arm in hers

And you follow till your sense of which direction

Completely disappears

By the blue tiled walls near the market stalls

There's a hidden door she leads you to

These days, she says, I feel my life

Just like a river running through

The year of the cat

Why she looks at you so coolly

And her eyes shine like the moon in the sea

She comes in incense and patchouli

So you take her, to find what's waiting inside

The year of the cat

Well morning comes and you're still with her

And the bus and the tourists are gone

And you've thrown away your choice and lost your ticket

So you have to stay on

But the drumbeat strains of the night remain

In the rhythm of the newborn day

You know sometime you're bound to leave her

But for now you're going to stay

In the year of the cat

New Years Day

U2

All is quiet on New Year's Day

A world in white gets underway

I want to be with you

Be with you night and day

Nothing changes on New Year's Day

On New Year's Day

I will be with you again

I will be with you again

Under a blood red sky

A crowd has gathered in black and white

Arms entwined, the chosen few

The newspapers says, says

Say it's true it's true...

And we can break through

Though torn in two

We can be one

I...I will begin again

I...I will begin again

Oh...

Maybe the time is right

Oh...maybe tonight...

I will be with you again

I will be with you again

And so we're told this is the golden age

And gold is the reason for the wars we wage

Though I want to be with you

Be with you night and day

Nothing changes

On New Year's Day

On New Year's Day

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3reF1gfkTAc&feature=related

Happy New Year Y'all

Undun

The Guess Who

She's come undone

She didn't know

what she was headed for

And when I found

what she was headed for

It was too late

She's come undone

She found a mountain

that was far too high

And when she found out

she couldn't fly

It was too late

It's too late

She's gone too far

She's lost the sun

She's come undone

She wanted truth

but all she got was lies

Came the time to realize

And it was too late

She's come undone

She didn't know

what she was headed for

And when I found

what she was headed for

Mama, it was too late

It's too late

She's gone too far

She's lost the sun

She's come undone

Too many mountains

and not enough stairs to climb

Too many churches

and not enough truth

Too many people

and not enough eyes to see

Too many lives

to lead and not enough time

It's too late

She's gone too far

She's lost the sun

She's come undone

It's too late

She's gone too far

She's lost the sun

She's come undone

She didn't know

what she was headed for

And when I found

what she was headed for

It was too late

She's come undone

She found a mountain

that was far too high

And when she found out

she couldn't fly

Mama, it was too late

It's too late

She's gone too far

She's lost the sun

She's come undone

Rain When I Die

Alice in Chains

Is she ready to know my frustration?

What she slippin' inside, slow castration

I'm a riddle so strong, you can't break me

Did she come here to try, try to take me

Did she call my name?

I think it's gonna rain

When I die

Was it something I said, held against me?

Ain't no life on the run, slowly climbing

Caught in ice so she stares, stares at nothing

I can help her but won't, now she hates me

Did she call my name?

I think it's gonna rain

When I die

She won't let me hide

She don't want me to cry

Will she keep on the ground, trying to ground me

Slowly forgive my lie, lying to save me

Could she love me again, or will she hate me

Probably not, I know why, can't explain me

Did she call my name?

I think it's gonna rain

When I die

Don't Dream it's over

Crowded House

There is freedom within, there is freedom without

Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

There's a battle ahead, many battles are lost

But you'll never see the end of the road

While you're traveling with me

Hey now, hey now

Don't dream it's over

Hey now, hey now

When the world comes in

They come, they come

To build a wall between us

We know they won't win

Now I'm towing my car, there's a hole in the roof

My possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof

In the paper today, tales of war and of waste

But you turn right over to the TV page

Hey now, hey now

Don't dream it's over

Hey now, hey now

When the world comes in

They come, they come

To build a wall between us

We know they won't win

Now I'm walking again to the beat of a drum

And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart

Only shadows ahead, barely clearing the roof

Get to know the feeling of liberation and release

Hey now, hey now

Don't dream it's over

Hey now, hey now

When the world comes in

They come, they come

To build a wall between us

We know they won't win

Well, don't let them win

Hey now, hey now

Don't let them win

Don't let them win, yeah

The World I know

Collective Soul

Has our conscience shown?

Has the sweet breeze blown?

Has all kindness gone?

Hope still lingers on.

I drink myself of newfound pity

Sitting alone in New York City

And I don't know why.

Are we listening?

Hymns of offering.

Have we eyes to see?

Love is gathering.

All the words that I've been reading

Have now started the act of bleeding

Into one.

So I walk up on high

And I step to the edge

To see my world below.

And I laugh at myself

While the tears roll down.

'Cause it's the world I know.

It's the world I know.

Sara - Fleetwood Mac

Wait a minute baby,

Stay with me awhile...

Said you'd give me light

But you never told me about the fire

Drownin', in the sea of love

Where everyone would love to drown

But now it's gone, it doesn't matter what for

So when you build your house, then call me home

And it was just like a great dark wind

Within the wings of a storm

I think I had met my match

He was singin'

And undoing and undoing

Oooooooo, the laces, undoing the laces.

He said "Sara, you're the poet in my heart,

Never change, never stop..."

But now it's gone, it doesn't matter what for,

But when you build your house, then call me home

Hold on, the night is comin'

And the starling flew for days

I'd stay home at night all the time,

I go anywhere - anywhere - anyway...

Ask me and I'm there, yeah,

Ask me and I'm there, 'cause I care

In the sea of love, where every woman would love to drown

But now it's gone, they say it doesn't matter anymore

If you build your house, then please call me home

He said Sara, you're the poet in my heart,

Never change, and don?t you ever stop...

But now it's gone; no, it doesn't matter anymore

When you build your house, I?ll come by

Little Wing

Jimi

Well she's walking through the clouds

With a circus mind that's running round

Butterflies and zebras

And moonbeams and fairy tales

That's all she ever thinks about

Riding with the wind.

When I'm sad, she comes to me

With a thousand smiles, she gives to me free

It's alright she says it's alright

Take anything you want from me,

Anything.

Fly on little wing,

Yeah yeah, yeah, little wing

YONI

FATE OF THE UNION

American life is changing direction

Just like the song that Dylan wrote

Who are we now as a people?

Time for a census of the soul

Look all around, what have you noticed?

Political talk is trendy again

Citizen Joe is learning the world beyond the oceans

Now is the call for rock and roll songs about more then sex and drugs

We should become the ones who say no to wastin' away

A generation that will be known for all they saved

No more watching others be

Time to live our own reality

We should be the ones who say no

Have you thought about tomorrow and all the many ways it could come?

What of those who believe that our fall has already begun?

All our days spent gazing at celebrity skin

It always begins from within

We should become the ones who say no to wastin' away

A generation that will be known for all they saved

No more watching others be

Time to live our own reality

We should be the ones who say no

Let us be the ones who say no

Take a look at all the roads to Rome

No one ever thought they'd be gone

But now we're standing at the crossroads of our own

And how do we overcome the fate of Rome before?

Let us ride the winds of change, let it fall on us to behave

No more watching others be

Time to live our own reality

We should be the ones who say no

No more watching others be

Time to live our own reality

We should be the ones who say no

Let us be the ones who say no

We will be the ones who say no

Please Come to Boston - Dave Loggins

Please come to Boston for the springtime

I'm stayin' here with some friends and they've got lots of room

You can sell your paintings on the sidewalk

By a caf? here I hope to be workin' soon

Please come to Boston

She said "No, would you come home to me"

And she said, "Hey ramblin' boy now won't cha settle down

Boston ain't your kinda town

There ain't no gold and there ain't nobody like me

I'm the number one fan of the man from Tennessee"

Please come to Denver with the snowfall

We'll move up into the mountains so far that we can't be found

And throw "I love you" echoes down the canyon

And then lie awake at night till they come back around

Please come to Denver

She said "no, Boy, would you come home to me"

And she said, "Hey ramblin' boy why don't cha settle down

Denver ain't your kinda town

There ain't no gold and there ain't nobody like me

'Cause I'm the number one fan of the man from Tennessee"

Now this drifter's world goes 'round and 'round

And I doubt that it's ever gonna stop

But of all the dreams I've lost or found

And all that I ain't got

I still need to lean to

Somebody I can sing to

Please come to LA to live forever

California life alone is just too hard to build

I live in a house that looks out over the ocean

And there's some stars that fell from the sky

Livin' up on the hill

Please come to LA

She just said "no, boy, won't you come home to me"

And she said, "hey ramblin' boy why don't cha settle down

LA can't be your kinda town

There ain't no gold and there ain't nobody like me

No, no, I'm the number one fan of the man from Tennessee"

"I'm the number one fan of the man from Tennessee"
