Well I don’t know why I came here tonight.
I’ve got the feeling that something ain’t right.
I’m so scared in case I fall off my chair,
and I’m wondering how I’ll get down the stairs.

Clowns to the left of me!
Jokers to the right!
Here I am stuck in the middle with you.

Yes I’m stuck in the middle with you,
and I’m wondering what it is I should do.
It’s so hard to keep this smile from my face.
Losing control yeah I'm all over the place.

Clowns to the left of me!
Jokers to the right!
Here I am stuck in the middle with you.

Well you started off with nothing
and you’re proud that you're a self-made man
yeah
and your friends they all come crawling,
slap you on the back and say
Please . . .
Please . . .

Trying to make some sense of it all
but I can see that it makes no sense at all.
Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor?
I don’t think that I can take anymore.

Clowns to the left of me!
Jokers to the right!
Here I am stuck in the middle with you.

Stuck in the middle
Stuck in the middle

Clowns to the left of me!
Jokers to the right!
Clowns to the left of me!

and you’re proud that your a self-made man.

Terry Jacks Season in the Sun
Posted: 6/11/2012 1:25:49 AM
Goodbye to you
my trusted friend
We've known each other since we were nine or ten
Together we've climbed hills and trees
Learned of love and A-B-C's
Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.
Goodbye
my friend
it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky;
Now that the spring is in the air
Pretty girls are ev'rywhere
Think of me and I'll be there.
We had joy
we had fun
We had seasons in the sun;
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time.
Goodbye
Papa
please pray for me
I was the black sheep of the family;
You tried to teach me right from wrong
Too much wine and too much song
wonder how I got along.
Goodbye
papa
it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky;
( From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/t/terry-jacks-lyrics/seasons-in-the-sun-lyrics.html )
Now that the spring is in the air
Little children ev'rywhere
When you'll see them
I'll be there.
We had joy
we had fun
We had seasons in the sun;
But the wine and the song
Like the seasons have all gone.{Repeat last 5 lines}
Goodbye
Michelle
my little one
You gave me love and helped me find the sun;
And ev'ry time that I was down
You would always come around
And get my feet back on the ground.
Goodbye
Michelle
it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky;
Now that the spring is in the air
With the flowers ev'rywhere;
I wish that we could both be there.
We had joy
we had fun
We had seasons in the sun;
But the stars we could reach
Were just star-fish on the beach.

Every State Line"

I got pulled over in west Texas
so they could look inside my car
he said are you an american citizen
I said
yes sir
so far
they made sure I wasn't smuggling
someone in from Mexico
someone willing to settle for america
'cause there's nowhere else to go

and every state line
there's a new set of laws
and every police man
comes equipped with extended claws
there's a thousand shades of white
and a thousand shades of black
but the same rule always applies
smile pretty, and watch your back

I broke down in Louisiana
and I had to thumb a ride
got in the first car that pulled over
you can't be picky in the middle of the night
he said
baby, do you like to fool around
baby, do you like to be touched
I said
maybe some other time
**** you very much

and every state line
there's a new set of laws
and every police man
comes equipped with extended claws
there's a thousand shades of white
and a thousand shades of black
but the same rule always applies
smile pretty, and watch your back

I'm in the middle of alabama
they stare at me where ever I go
I don't think they like my haircut
I don't think they like my clothes
I can't wait to get back to New York City
where at least when I walk down the street
nobody ever hesitates
to tell me exactly what they think of me

and every state line
there's a new set of laws
and every police man
comes equipped with extended claws
there's a thousand shades of white
and a thousand shades of black
but the same rule always applies
smile pretty, and watch your back

a little town in pennsylvania
there was snow on the ground
a parked in an empty lot
where there was no one else around
but I guess I was taking up too much space
as I was trying to get some sleep
'cause an officer came by anyway
and told me I had to leave

and every state line
there's a new set of laws
and every police man
comes equipped with extended claws
there's a thousand shades of white
and a thousand shades of black
but the same rule always applies
smile pretty, and watch your back

Fixing Her Hair"

she's looking in the mirror
she's fixing her hair
and I touch my head to feel
what isn't there
she's humming a melody
we learned in grade school
she's so happy
and I think
this is not cool
'cause I know the guy
she's been talking about
I have met him before
and I think
what is this beautiful beautiful woman
settling for?

she bends her breath
when she talks to him
I can see her features begin to blur
as she pours herself
into the mold he made for her
and for everything he does
she has a way to rationalize
she says he don't mean what he do
she tells me he called
to apologize

he says he loves her
he says he's changing
and he can keep her warm
and so she sits there like america
suffering through slow reform
but she'll never get back the time
and the years sneak by
one by one
she is still playing the martyr
I am still praying for revolution

and she still doesn't have what she deserves
but she wakes up smiling every day
she never really expected more
that's just not the way we are raised
and I say to her,
you know,
there's plenty of really great men out there
but she doesn't hear me
she's looking in the mirror
she's fixing her hair

"AS IS"

You can't hide
Behind social graces
So don't try
To be all touchy feely
Cause you lie
In my face of all places
But I've got no
Problem with that really

What bugs me
Is that you believe what you're saying
What bothers me
Is that you don't know how you feel
What scares me
Is that while you're telling me stories
You actually
Believe that they are real

And I've got
No illusions about you
And guess what?
I never did
And when I said
When I said I'll take it
I meant,
I meant as is

Just give up
And admit you're an ***hole
You would be
In some good company
I think you'd find
That your friends would forgive you
Or maybe I
Am just speaking for me

Cause when I look around
I think this, this is good enough
And I try to laugh
At whatever life brings
Cause when I look down
I just miss all the good stuff
When I look up
I just trip over things

And I've got
No illusions about you...

You can't hide
Behind social graces
Cause I don't buy it
Like everyone else
And you can lie
In my face of all places
Just don't
Lie to yourself

Cause I've got
No illusions about you
And guess what?
I never did
And when I say
When I say I'll take it
I mean,
I mean as is...

...as is..

Matisyahu~One Day
Posted: 6/11/2012 1:53:50 AM
sometimes I lay
under the moon
and thank God I'm breathing
then I pray
don't take me soon

cause I am here for a reason
sometimes in my tears I drown
but I never let it get me down
so when negativity surrounds
I know some day it'll all turn around

because
all my life I've been waiting for
I've been praying for
for the people to say
that we don't wanna fight no more
there'll be no more wars
and our children will play

one day, one day, one day
one day, one day, one day

it's not about
win or lose cause
we all lose
when they feed on the souls of the innocent
blood drenched pavement
keep on moving though the waters stay raging

in this maze you can lose your way (your way)
it might drive you crazy but don't let it faze you no way (no way)

sometimes in my tears I drown
but I never let it get me down
so when negativity surrounds
I know some day it'll all turn around

because
all my life I've been waiting for
I've been praying for
for the people to say
that we don't wanna fight no more
there'll be no more wars
and our children will play

one day, one day, one day
one day, one day, one day

one day this all will change
treat people the same
stop with the violence
down with the hate

one day we'll all be free
and proud to be
under the same sun
singing songs of freedom like

one day, one day
one day, one day

all my life I've been waiting for
I've been praying for
for the people to say
that we don't wanna fight no more
there'll be no more wars
and our children will play

one day, one day, one day
one day, one day one day
ooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

"Skin Deep"

I ain't asking you to keep no secrets
My reputation already shot
I ain't asking you to commit treason
Just tell me if you like it or not
Like it or not baby that's they way I want it to be
Don't give your heart and soul
My love is only skin deep

I'll give you my time and money
I'll give you somewhere to sleep
But don't ask me for my heart and soul
My love is only skin deep
My love is only skin deep
My love is only skin deep

I ain't looking for no blue-eyed lover
That's what stole my baby away
I can see your eyes are darker than midnight
And that's the time that I want to play
I want to play baby that's they way I want it to be
Don't give me your heart and soul
My love is only skin deep

I'll give you my time and money
I'll give you somewhere to sleep
But don't ask me for my heart and soul
My love is only skin deep
My love is only skin deep
My love is only skin deep

I'll give you my time and money
I'll give you somewhere to sleep
But don't ask me for my heart and soul
My love is only skin deep
My love is only skin deep
My love is only skin deep

The Dirty Heads~Spread to Thin
Posted: 6/11/2012 1:54:16 PM
I, I'm spread way too thin
Everybody wants to know what's happenin'
I, I'm spread way too thin
What's the big rush now, tell me why you're rushin'

I, I'm spread way too thin
Everybody wants to know what's happenin
I, I'm spread way too thin
What's the big rush now, tell me why you're rushin'
Why you rushin'
Why you rushin'

Well everybody's callin, but I just need some time.
Yeah I just need some room to breathe again
A way to clear my mind
You don't need to be here
All up in my face
We need to find the right solution
To put you in your place

I said hey, I got a lot to say to you
Hear what you say it's not true
So this is what I'm gonna do
Look at me I'm gonna let you know

I, I'm spread way too thin
Everybody wants to know what's happenin'
I, I'm spread way too thin
What's the big rush now tell me why you're rushin'
Why you rushin'
Why you rushin'

Well this has got me twisted
In the worst kind of way
You put me down when I'm not around]
And then you, and they you smile at my face
You don't need a home no, what you need is a cage
I've bottled up all of these emotions babe
A monster 'bout to rage

I said hey, I got a lot to say to you
It seems you got somethin' to prove
So this is what I'm gonna do
Look at me I'm gonna tell you so

I, I'm spread way too thin
Everybody wants to know what's happenin'
I, I'm spread way too thin
What's the big rush now tell me why you're rushin'
Why you rushin'

Let me breathe, let me chill for a while
Let me breathe, no it's not my style
Let me breathe, let me chill for a while
Let me breathe, no it's not my style

I said hey, I got a lot to say to you
Hear what you say it's not true
So this is what I'm gonna do
Look at me I'm gonna let you know

I, I'm spread way too thin
Everybody wants to know what's happenin'
I, I'm spread way too thin
What's the big rush now tell me why you're rushin'
Why you rushin'
Why you rushin'

Tracy Chapman "One Reason"
Posted: 6/11/2012 11:04:37 PM
Give me one reason to stay here
And I'll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here
And I'll turn right back around
Because I don't wanna leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind

Baby, I got your number
And I know that you got mine
But you know that I called you,
I called too many times
You can call me baby,
you can call me anytime
But you got to call me

Give me one reason to stay here
And I'll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here
And I'll turn right back around
Because I don't wanna leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind

I don't want no one to squeeze me
They might take away my life
I don't want no one to squeeze me
They might take away my life
I just want someone to hold me
And rock me through the night

This youthful heart can love you
And give you what you need
This youthful heart can love you
And give you what you need
But I'm too old to go chasing you around
Wasting my precious energy

Give me one reason to stay here
And I'll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here
And I'll turn right back around
Because I don't wanna leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind

Baby, just give me just one reason
Give me just one reason why
Baby just give me one reason
Give me just one reason why I should stay
Because I told you I loved you
And there ain't no more to say

Matt Skiba~Good F*cking Bye
Posted: 6/12/2012 3:43:43 AM
So you broke down
Trying to leave town
I broke down crying on your return
You left me feeling hopeful
I'll never see your face again

You made for a bad lover's liver
You stole all the covers and busted my head
You made me such an ass hole
I wish we'd never met

I'm tired of being bored
I'm through with the headaches
And hiding my hands
that tremble like earthquakes
Under the table under the daytime sky
Good fvcking bye

And when you lose hope
It's hard to cope
Watching the tyranny with sober eyes
At daybreak and sunset
All hours in between are spent murdering time

You made for a bad lover's liver
You sold all the covers and fvcked up my head
You made me such an ass hole
I wish we'd never met

I'm tired of being bored
I'm through with the headaches at night
And my hands they tremble like earthquakes
Under the table under the daytime sky
Good fvcking bye
Good fvcking bye
Good fvcking bye

Posted: 6/12/2012 3:58:31 AM
I kinder as the summer beats around me
It reminds me when I could not bear
To live an inside life, I need escape from
A grown-up world

Lying in a grassy parade
Barefoot dances always the same
When the emcee calls your name
You know you're gonna be prepared

Please sway with me,
I take comfort in what used to be
Testing armies
Many lifeforms in the dirt, breaking out in bravery

Watching clouds turn into black light
Birthing out excited first light
You sit there long enough and still enough
You'll see a hole punch in the sky

Comets in a beautiful hue
Flicker in and out of our view
Forming patterns in the sky
You know a paper moon don't lie

Please sway with me,
I take comfort in what used to be
Testing armies,
Many lifeforms in the dirt, breaking out in bravery

This home, (This home.)

We hope, (We hope.)
You pray. (Aaha)
But today is still today.

Oh, we ran ourselves ragged.
And all these broken backs, tragic.

We try, (We try.)
You fail. (Aaha)
Another mark you left in hell.
And this cut, (This cut.)
Will run. (Aaha)
But the guilt has just begun.

Oh, we ran ourselves ragged.
And all these broken backs, tragic.

The future bleeds
All these wasted seeds.
Don't let it go.
We're taking back control.
The future needs
All these wasted seeds.
Don't let it go.
We're taking back control.

And this hole, (This hole.)
You tore. (You tore.) (Aaha)
Left blood on every door..
We hope, (We hope.)

Tragedy will change your mind.

Oh, we ran ourselves ragged.

Down With Webster - She's Dope
Posted: 6/13/2012 9:21:16 PM
Natalie Merchant - Ophelia


Ophelia was a bride of god
A novice Carmelite
In sister cells the cloister bells
Tolled on her wedding night

Ophelia was a rebel girl
A blue stocking suffragette
Who remedied society
Between her cigarettes

Ophelia was a sweetheart
To the nation over night
Curvaceous thighs
Vivacious eyes
Love was at first sight...

Ophelia was a demigoddess
In pre war Babylon
So statuesque a silhouette
In black satin evening gowns

Ophelia was the mistress to a
Vegas gambling man
Signora Ophelia Maraschina
Mafia courtesan

Ophelia was a circus queen
The female cannonball
Projected through five flaming hoops
To wild and shocked applause...

Ophelia was a tempest, cyclone
A god damned hurricane
Your common sense
Your best defense
Lay wasted and in vain

Ophelia'd know your every woe
And pain you'd ever had
She'd sympathize
And dry your eyes
And help you to forget...

Ophelia's mind went wandering
You'd wonder where she'd gone
Through secret doors
Down corridors
She'd wander them alone
All alone...

MOFRO ~ Brighter Days
Posted: 6/16/2012 8:26:14 AM
*fits with the weather*

Don't stop even for the right thing
does it matter what I say?
my whole world was by that river
flowing off to meet the sea each day
I don't want to move away.

You look at me and you say "what's wrong boy?"
What else do you want me to say?
I don't want to leave tomorrow
been and gone but I belong here now
Your big world can wait another day.

Brighter days where did they go?

I am hopeful for where I'm going
but I belong in The South
That was where I was born a poor boy
Living life like there's no end in sight
even so I've done without

Brighter days where did they go?

Boy, you're about to hit the bottom
I feel alone, I feel I'm moving there
To a land you never saw and I see you're about to hit the bottom
Lord help me move away to a land you never saw
and I've seen.

Brighter days where did they go?

Gloria Esefan ~ I see your smile

Ooooo mushy baby kissy face song

I, get a little tongue twisted
Every time i talk to you
When i see you
And i'm so glad that you just missed it
The way i stared to memorize your face
To kiss you in my mind
Love you all the time
'cause when i close my eyes
I still can see your smile
It's bright enough to light my life
Out of my darkest hour
Please believe it's true
When i tell you i love you

I've taken too many chances
Searching for the truth in love
That's in my heart
Tell me if i made the wrong advances
Tell me if i've made you feel ashamed
'cause i know i have to do this
Would you hold my hand right through it

'cause when i close my eyes
I still can see your smile
It's bright enough to light my life
Out of my darkest hour
Please belive it's true
When i tell you i love you

I had to let you know
Just what would happen
Yes, i had to let you know the truth
I know i've got to do this
Would you hold my hand right through it
Would you
'cause when i close my eyes
I still can see your smile
It's bright enough to light my life
Out of my
Darkest hour
Please believe it's true
When i tell you i love you
I know now this is true
When i tell you i love you

Lee Greenwood ~ God Bless the USA
Posted: 6/18/2012 7:43:03 PM
This one brings back memories... :)

If tomorrow all the things were gone
I'd worked for all my life,
And I had to start again
with just my children and my wife,
I'd thank my lucky stars
to be living here today,
'Cause the flag still stands for freedom
and they can't take that away.

I'm proud to be an American
where at least I know I'm free,
And I won't forget the men who died
who gave that right to me,
And I gladly stand up next to you
and defend her still today,
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota
to the hills of Tennessee,
Across the plains of Texas
from sea to shining sea.
From Detroit down to Houston
and New York to L.A.,
There's pride in every American heart
and it's time we stand and say:

I'm proud to be an American
where at least I know I'm free,
And I won't forget the men who died
who gave that right to me,
And I gladly stand up next to you
and defend her still today,
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

Slayer ~ I Hate You
Posted: 6/20/2012 9:47:44 AM
Why yes, that sums up how I feel today. :D

You were just a waste of sperm
They way you look
Makes my stomach turn
The way you think
Is no way at all

God you really think you have balls
I hate you Ain't it true
I hate you And everything you do

You walk around like a ****ing****
And everytime you're near
You know I get real sick

You're so stupid
There's nothing in your head
God how I wish that you were dead

I hate you
Ain't it true
I hate you
And everything you do

The most awesome Jason Mraz! - If it kills me

Hello, tell me you know, yeah, you've figured me out
Something gave it away
And it would be such a beautiful moment to see the look on your face
To know that I know that you know now

And baby that's a case of my wishful thinking
You know nothing
'Cause you and I, why we go carrying on for hours on end
We get along much better than you and your boyfriend

Well, all I really want to do is love you
A kind much closer than friends use
But I still can't say it after all we've been through

And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me, if it kills me

Well, how long can I go on like this, wishing to kiss you
Before I rightly explode
And this double life I lead isn't healthy for me in fact it makes me nervous
If I get caught I could be risking it all
Well, baby there's a lot that I miss in case I'm wrong
( From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/j/jason-mraz-lyrics/if-it-kills-me-lyrics.html )

All I really want to do is love you
A kind much closer than friends use
But I still cant say it after all we've been through

And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me, if it kills me

If I should be so bold, I'd ask you to hold my heart in your hand
Tell you from the start how I've longed to be your man
But I never said a word I guess I'm gonna miss my chance again

Well, all I really want to do is love you
A kind much closer than friends use
But I still can't say it after all we've been through

And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me, if it kills me
I think it might kill me

And all I really want from you is to feel me
It's a feeling inside that keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me, if it kills me
It might kill me

The Tallest Man On Earth~The Dreamer
Posted: 6/21/2012 6:36:38 PM
I'm just a dreamer but I'm hanging on
Though I am nothing big to offer
I watch the birds, how they dive in then gone
It's like nothing in this world's ever still

And I'm just a shadow of your thoughts in me
But sun is setting, shadows growing
A long cast figure will turn into night
It's like nothing in this world ever sleeps

Oh sometimes the blues is just a passing bird
And why can't that always be
Tossing aside from your birches crown
Just enough dark to see
How you're the light over me

And by your side, girl, where the acres grow
Into the strong and stunning meadow
A cowboy stumbling in the finest field
And nothing good out there won't be old

Oh sometimes the blues is just a passing bird
And why can't that always be
Tossing aside from your birches crown
Just enough dark to see
How you're the light over me

Sometimes the blues is just a passing bird
And why can't that always be
Tossing aside from your birches crown
Just enough dark to see
How you're the light over me

Garth Brooks ~ The Dance
Posted: 6/22/2012 3:09:55 PM
I remember wishes and dreams and hopes for that moondance. *swoon*

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared beneath the stars above
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known you'd ever say goodbye
And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance
Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn't I the king
But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all
And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance
Yes my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance

Harry Connick Jr - With Imagination (I'll Get There)
Posted: 6/22/2012 3:18:13 PM
good thing I have a great imagination :)

I've traveled many a mile
And I haven't found a home
I've traveled many a mile
And one seed's unsown
I'll travel another mile
'Til I finally find my own
With imagination
I'll get there

I started with a dream
But came to a decision
I started with a dream
But now I have a mission
I have a goal
To see beyond my vision
With imagination
I'll get there

I've got to be strong [Shannon]
TO CLIMB THE NEXT HILL
I've got to be strong [Russell]
MY FATE TO FULFILL
And from a strength [Leroy]
STRONGER THAN MY WILL
WITH IMAGINATION
I'LL GET THERE

In my father's house
No harsh words are spoken
In my father's house
No vows are broken
In a holy place
My sould like beams oaken
With imagination
I'll get there

When weary is your world
Go and spin another
When weary is your world
There's heaven to discover
Here on earth
We're sister and brother
With imagination
We'll get there

And if I stand alone
To my cause I'm loyal
If I stand alone
Either common or royal
I'm not afraid
To cross their sea of toil
With imagination
I'll get there

With imagination
I'll get there

With imagination
I'll get there

My grandpa, he's 95
And he keeps on dancin'
He's still alive

My grandma, she's 92
She loves to dance
And sing some, too

I don't know
But I've been told
If you keep on dancing
You'll never grow old

Come on darling
Put a pretty dress on
We're gonna go out tonight
Dance, dance, dance
Dance, dance, dance
Dance, dance, dance
All night long

I'm a hard working man
I'm a son of a gun
I've been working all week in the noon day sun
The wood's in the kitchen
And the cow's in the barn
I'm all cleaned up and my chores are all done
Take my hand, come along
Let's go out and have some fun

Come on darling put a pretty dress on
We're gonna go out tonight
Dance, dance, dance
Dance, dance, dance
Dance, dance, dance
All night long

Pick on

Dance, dance, dance
Dance, dance, dance
Dance, dance, dance
All night long

Come on darling, don't look that way
Don't you know when you smile
I've got to say you're my honey pumpkin lover
You're my heart's delight
Don't you want to go out tonight
You're such a pretty lady
You're such a sweet girl
When you dance it brightens up my world
Come on darling put a pretty dress on
We're gonna go out tonight
And dance, dance, dance
Dance, dance, dance
Dance, dance, dance
All night long

Talking Heads~This Must Be the Place
Posted: 6/23/2012 6:53:53 AM
Did I find you, or you find me? :-)


Home is where I want to be
Pick me up and turn me round
I feel numb - burn with a weak heart
(So I) guess I must be having fun

The less we say about it the better
Make it up as we go along
Feet on the ground
Head in the sky
It's ok I know nothing's wrong . . nothing

Hi yo I got plenty of time
Hi yo you got light in your eyes
And you're standing here beside me
I love the passing of time
Never for money
Always for love
Cover up say goodnight . . . say goodnight

Home - is where I want to be
But I guess I'm already there
I come home she lifted up her wings
Guess that this must be the place

I can't tell one from another
Did I find you, or you find me?
There was a time Before we were born
If someone asks, this where I'll be . . . where I'll be

Hi yo We drift in and out
Hi yo sing into my mouth
Out of all tose kinds of people
You got a face with a view
I'm just an animal looking for a home
Share the same space for a minute or two
And you love me till my heart stops
Love me till I'm dead
Eyes that light up, eyes look through you
Cover up the blank spots
Hit me on the head Ah ooh
