BathWater - No DoubtPage 43 of 61    (21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61)
You and your museum of lovers
The precious collection you've housed in your covers
My simpleness threatened by my own admission

And the bags are much too heavy
In my insecure condition
My pregnant mind is fat full with envy again

But I still love to wash in your old bathwater
Love to think that you couldn't love another
I can't help it...you're my kind of man

Wanted and adored by attractive women
Bountiful selection at your discretion
I know I'm diving into my own destruction

So why do we choose the boys that are naughty?
I don't fit in so why do you want me?
And I know I can't tame you...but I just keep trying

'Cause I love to wash in your old bathwater
Love to think that you couldn't love another
I'm on your list with all your other women
But I still love to wash in your old bathwater
You make me feel like I couldn't love another
I can't help it...you're my kind of man

Why do the good girls always want the bad boys?

So I pacify problems with kisses and cuddles
Diligently doubtful through all kinds of trouble
Then I find myself choking on all my contradictions

'Cause I still love to wash in your old bathwater
Love to think that you couldn't love another
Share a toothbrush...you're my kind of man
I still love to wash in your old bathwater
Make me feel like I couldn't love another
I can't help it...you're my kind of man

No I can't help myself
I can't help myself
I still love to wash in your old bathwater

"That's Just The Way It Is Baby"
by the Rembrandts, 1990

Do you remember once upon a time
When you were mine
The stars above were bright and new
I pulled them down for you
Just when I fell in love again
You said that all good things must end

Baby
That's just the way it is baby.
Woo Wooo Baby
That’s just the way it is baby.

I never had a head for solitaire
It’s so unfair
That I should have my chance and loose.
Feel like I’ve been used to help you through another night
You spelled it out in black and white.

Baby
That's just the way it is baby.
Woo Wooo Baby
That’s just the way it is baby.

The times that once had carried you away
They bring you back today
The time has washed away my pain
To find that things have change and disappeared without a trace
You can’t get back what you erased

And I say
Baby
That's just the way it is baby.
That’s just the way it is.
Baby,
That’s just the way it is.
That’s just the way it is.
Baby,
That’s just the way it is.
Baby
That’s just the way it is baby.
Baby…

another Rembrandts tune....from the same album....

"Confidential Information"

She tried to keep a secret- swore she'd never tell
Double-crossed her heart and hoped to die
You see she had this awful habit, of talking in her sleep
And when she dreamed at night, she couldn't tell a lie...

She contemplated suicide, but couldn't follow through
Felt the guilt alone would do her in
'Cause the man who loved and trusted her, would never feel the same for her
If she let the truth be known, where she had been...

Confidential Information
In a dream a true confession
She didn't mean to give away
such confidential information

She had to find an alibi- he questioned her no end
Did this come from some experience she'd had?
She said she had a wild imagination, yet her passion was for him
And in explainin', she confessed how she'd gone bad...

Oh so bad...

Confidential Information
In a dream a true confession
She didn't mean to give away
such confidential information

He said...maybe it's the moonlight, or somethin' 'bout the darkness
But I feel I must forgive you either way
And with those words she woke to find him lying, sleeping by her side
And her secret could be kept another day

Confidential Information
In a dream a true confession
She didn't mean to give away
such confidential information

Confidential Information
In a dream a true confession
She didn't mean to give away
such confidential information

Confidential information
She didn't mean to give away such
confidential information

Sweet Nothing- Calvin Harris ft Florence Welch
Posted: 1/20/2013 10:05:44 AM
Guestspeaker, you are quite the dj ~


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17ozSeGw-fY


You took my heart, and you held it in your mouth
And,
With the word, all my love came rushing out
And,
Every whisper, it's the worst,
Emptied out by a single word
There is a hollow in me now

So I put my faith in something unknown
I'm living on such sweet nothing
But I'm tryin' to hope with nothing to hold
I'm living on such sweet nothing
And it's hard to learn
And it's hard to love
When you're giving me such sweet nothing
Sweet nothing
Sweet nothing
You're giving me such sweet nothing

It isn't easy for me to let it go
'Cause I swallow every single word
And every whisper, every sigh
Eats away this heart of mine
And there is a hollow in me now

So I put my faith in something unknown
I'm living on such sweet nothing
But I'm tired of hope with nothing to hold
I'm living on such sweet nothing

And it's hard to learn
And it's hard to love
When you're giving me such sweet nothing
Sweet nothing
Sweet nothing
You're giving me such sweet nothing

And it's not enough
To tell me that you care
When, we both know the words are empty air
You give me nothing
Nothing

Uooh
Uooh
Uooh
Sweet, nothing

Uooh
Uooh
Uooh
Sweet, nothing

Tornado- Big Country
Posted: 1/20/2013 10:55:35 AM
Thought you'd change the weather
Start a little storm
Make a little rain
But I'm gonna do one better hide the sun until you pray
I'm a tornado looking for a soul to take

You're gonna see me coming by the selfish things that you did
I'm gonna leave you guessin' how this funnel is gonna hit
I'm a tornado looking for a man to break

Yeah, I'm gonna lift this house, spin it all around
Toss it in the air and put it in the ground
Make sure you're never found

Thought you'd take a swing
Try another girl, try another night,
But it's the pain that brings my force of nature back to life
I'm a tornado more disturbed than an F5

Hey, I'm gonna lift this house, spin it all around
Toss it in the air and put it in the ground
I'm gonna lift this house, spin it all around
Toss it in the air and put it in the ground
Make sure you're never found, oh, yeah

OOOOOOOOOOO
MMMMMMMMMM

I'm gonna lift this house, spin it all around
Toss it in the air and put it in the ground
I'm gonna lift this house, spin it all around
Toss it in the air and put it in the ground
Make sure you're never found

The winds are getting stronger
And the sky is falling through
And you ain't got much longer
'Til the rage rips off the roof
I'm a tornado... and I'm coming after you...

Oooo...
Hmm...
Oooo...

(I'm gonna lift this house, spin it all around
Toss it in the air and put it in the ground)

One more from the Rembrandts...

see, years ago I was living in Devon, UK and listening to Bob Harris's last week of his show from midnight -4am.... and he played That's Just the Way it is Baby, along with many other great songs that I recorded on cassette tapes. I still have the tapes, but last week I found a Rembrandts CD from 1990 in a local second-hand shop in great condition....and so have been listening to it constantly in my car.... so here's another great song from that album...

"Everyday People"

Oh the times they are a changin' - I can feel it in the air
Oh can't you hear the bells of freedom, ringin' everywhere?
And if you look across the ocean, you will see a shining light
And I know that come tomorrow, everything will be alright

'CAUSE EVERYDAY PEOPLE, ARE MAKIN' A SOUND
THEY'RE GETTIN' TOGETHER, AND STANDIN' THEIR GROUND
YOU CAN BUILD UP THE WALL, BUT WE'LL TEAR IT DOWN
WE ARE EVERYDAY PEOPLE

And our numbers are many, but our hearts beat as one
We will fight to the finish, 'til the battle is won
For the right to be free, in a world without war
In a land where the giants can no longer ignore
The voice of our children, who are cryin' revolution
Who inherit our pollution, if we don't change our ways

[CHORUS]

[CHORUS to fade]

Air Supply "Out of Nothing at All"
I know just how to whisper
And I know just how to cry
I know just where to find the answers
And I know just how to lie
I know just how to fake it
And I know just how to scheme
I know just when to face the truth
And then I know just when to dream

And I know just where to touch you
And I know just what to prove
I know when to pull you closer
And I know when to let you loose
And I know the night is fading
And I know the time's gonna fly
And I'm never gonna tell you
Everything I gotta tell you
But I know I gotta give it a try

And I know the roads to riches
And I know the ways to fame
I know all the rules
And I know how to break 'em
And I always know the name of the game

But I don't know how to leave you
And I'll never let you fall
And I don't know how you do it
Making love out of nothing at all

Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all

Everytime I see you all the rays of the sun
Are streaming through the waves in your hair
And every star in the sky is taking aim at your eyes
Like a spotlight

The beating of my heart is a drum and it's lost
And it's looking for a rhythm like you
You can take the darkness from the pit of the night
And turn into a beacon burning endlessly bright

I've gotta follow it 'cause everything I know
Well it's nothing till I give it to you

I can make the runner stumble
I can make the final block
And I can make every tackle at the sound of the whistle
I can make all the stadiums rock
I can make tonight forever
Or I can make it disappear by the dawn
I can make you every promise that has ever been made
I can make all your demons be gone

But I'm never gonna make it without you
Do you really want to see me crawl
And I'm never gonna make it like you do
Making love out of nothing at all

Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all

Zero 7-In the Waiting Line
Posted: 1/23/2013 4:19:56 AM
Wait in line
'Till your time
Ticking clock
Everyone stop

Everyone's saying different things to me
Different things to me
Everyone's saying different things to me
Different things to me

Whoa
Do you believe
In what you see
There doesn't seem to be anybody else who agrees with me

Do you believe
In what you see
Motionless wheel
Nothing is real
Wasting my time
In the waiting line
Do you believe in
What you see

Nine to five
Living lies
Everyday
Stealing time
Everyone's taking everything they can
Everything they can
Everyone's taking everything they can
Everything they can

Whoa
Do you believe
In what you feel
It doesn't seem to be anybody else who agrees with me

Do you believe
In what you see
Motionless wheel
Nothing is real
Wasting my time
In the waiting line
Do you believe
In what you see

Ah and I'll shout and I'll scream
But I'd rather not have seen
And I'll hide away for another day

Do you believe
In what you see
Motionless wheel
Nothing is real
Wasting my time
In the waiting line
Do you believe
In what you see

Everyone's saying different things to me
Different things to me
Different things to me
Different things to me
Different things to me
Everyone's taking everything they can
Everything they can

who are you?
Posted: 1/23/2013 12:46:47 PM
topdawg28

I woke up in a Soho doorway
The policeman knew my name
He said, "You can go sleep at home tonight
If you can get up and walk away"
I staggered back to the underground
The breeze blew back my hair
I remembered throwing punches around
And preachin' from my chair

Who are you
Who who who who
Who are you
Who who who who

I took the tube back out of town
Home to the rolling pin
I felt a little like a dying clown
But with a streak of Rin Tin Tin
I stretched back and I hiccuped
Looked back on my busy day
Eleven hours in the tin pan
God there's got to be another way

Who are you
Who who who who
Who are you
Who who who who

There's a place where I know you walked
The love falls from the trees
My heart is like a broken cup
I only feel right on my knees
I spill out like a sewer hole
Yet still receive your kiss
How can I measure up to anyone new
After such a love as this

Who are you
Who who who who
Who are you
Who who who who

Spindrift
Posted: 1/23/2013 12:49:19 PM
Rush.
"Spindrift"

As the waves crash in
On the western shore
The wind blows fierce from the east
Wave tops torn into flying spindrift

As the waves crash in
On the western shore
It makes me feel uneasy
The spray that's torn away
Is an image of the way I feel

What am I supposed to say?
Where are the words to answer you
When you talk that way?

As sun goes down
On the western shore
The wind blows hard from the east
It whips the sand into a flying spindrift
As the sun goes down
On the western shore
It makes me feel uneasy
In the hot dry rasp of the devil winds
Who cares what a fool believes

What am I supposed to say?
Where are the words to answer you
When you talk that way?
Words that fly against the wind and waves

(A little closer to you)
Where is the wave that will carry me
A little closer to you?

What am I suppose to do?
Where are the words that will make you see
What I beleive is true?

Matisyahu-We Will Walk
Posted: 1/23/2013 4:32:13 PM
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QD495Npwhuc

I told her you must go
You can't stay here
She said I know
Since the death blow
My soul's been oh like sand
I'm so tired
It's like my spirit expired

Remember when I was just a child yet
Now I feel like a star a daybreak about to expire
And get lost in the sun
Me and you
We gotta leave and just run and run

Don't wait for me while I'm down
Cause I might not get up
All I have is right now but I give you what I got

You are the only good thing that I have ever done
We will walk until my blood runs out until my heart is burned
You are not alone

Run yet run yet running away
Promised and you choose to stay
Up and down do look away
Climbing them most every day

...

Patience on top of a mountain
Pumping blood through the veins of creation

We are not alone

He aches for her but can't find his way can't live no more

I ache for her but can't find my way I can't live no more

She is not alone

Just before the light goes away
Comes a child that collects all the reasons to be

That laughs and that smiles
Moments of clarity

Exchanging them for another day
And so my heart continues to say

You are the only good thing that I have ever done
We will walk until my blood runs out until my heart is burned
You are not alone

Here we go it's you and me
Gotta let go
Gotta believe
Rip through negativity
Find a place that we can be

So I agree inevitably we can't stay here eternally
The day has come

The bottom's out don't be a grump

She said we got to go
We can't stay here
I said I know but got no place to go
The nights are cold
And we need a place to be

Remember when I was just a child yeah
Now I feel like a star a daybreak about to expire
And get lost in the sun
Me and you
We gotta leave and just run and run

Run and Run

Run and Run and Run

You can't stay

Can't stay

Run and Run

Run and Run and Run

We will walk until my blood runs out until my heart is burned

I would dig a thousand holes to lay next to you
I would dig a thousand more if I needed to
I look around the grave for an escape route of old routines
There doesn't seem to be any other way

Cause I've started falling apart I'm not savoring life
I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive

Crazy as it sounds you won't feel as low as you feel right now
At least that's what I've been told by everyone
I whisper empty sounds in your ear and hope that you won't let go
Take the pieces and build them skywards

'Cause I've started falling apart I'm not savoring life
I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive

I've started falling apart I'm not savoring life
Take the pieces and build them skywards
I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive
Take the pieces and build them skywards

I've started falling apart I'm not savoring life
Take the pieces and build them skywards
I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive
Take the pieces and build them skywards

I've started falling apart I'm not savoring life
Take the pieces and build them skywards
I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive
Take the pieces and build them skywards

Take the pieces and build them skywards
And
Take the pieces and build them skywards
And
Take the pieces and build them up to the sky

I stroke your silken skin
Kiss you goodbye
Your eyes just pierce me through
I am bleeding with blood I'd give to you
To be the way we were

I still feel the pain in my heart
Thoughts once pure are now dialated

We sat and watched the sun go down
We're out together in each others arms
I've never felt so completed as when we're alone
On the sand that night

I still feel the pain in my heart
Thoughts once pure are now dialated

I love the way your hair hangs over your eyes
Touch me with your stare
If I could fly to you I would to be the way we were

I still feel the pain in my heart
Thoughts once pure are now dialated

It's alright now
It's alright now
It's alright now
It's alright now

"Hand In My Pocket"

I'm broke but I'm happy
I'm poor but I'm kind
I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah
I'm high but I'm grounded
I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed
I'm lost but I'm hopeful baby
What it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be fine fine fine
'cause I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving a high five
I feel drunk but I'm sober
I'm young and I'm underpaid
I'm tired but I'm working, yeah
I care but I'm restless
I'm here but I'm really gone
I'm wrong and I'm sorry baby

What it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be quite alright
'cause I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is flicking a cigarette
And what it all comes down to
Is that I haven't got it all figured out just yet
'cause I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving the peace sign
I'm free but I'm focused
I'm green but I'm wise
I'm hard but I'm friendly baby
I'm sad but I'm laughing
I'm brave but I'm chickenshit
I'm sick but I'm pretty baby

And what it all boils down to
Is that no one's really got it figured out just yet
'cause I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is playing the piano
And what it all comes down to my friends
Is that everything's just fine fine fine
'cause I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is hailing a taxi cab

Brother Hood of Man MOtor Head
Posted: 1/27/2013 7:24:20 AM
Now your time has come, a storm of iron in the sky,
War and murder come again, lucky if you die.
No way to rescue destiny, scream a curse in vain,
You will never be remembered, no one knows your name.

When the music changes then all is broken down,
Mighty cities laid to ruin, burning to the ground.
Murder is become the law; you cannot make a stand,
Chaos rules the world now mortal, Brotherhood of man.

You cannot hide the truth from me I know what's in your heart,
Greed and jealousy each equal, all your days now dark.
Mighty mountains fall in dust, the world falls into hell,
Faith in lying prophets, no one to life the spell.

Monsters rule your world are you too scared to understand?
You shall be forever judged and you shall surely hang.
We live and scrape in misery; we die by our own hand,
And still we murder our own children, Brotherhood of Man.

Blood on all our hands we cannot hope to wash them clean,
History is mystery do you know what it means?
Slaughter, kill and fighting still and murdered where we stand.
Our legacy is lunacy. Brotherhood of man.
We are worse than animals, we hunger for the kill,
We put our faith in maniacs the triumph of the will.
We kill for money, wealth and lust, for this we should be damned,
We are disease upon the world, Brotherhood of man.

Whats up "four Non-blonds"
Posted: 1/27/2013 7:28:08 AM
Twenty-five years I'm alive here still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination

I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this brotherhood of man
For whatever that means

And so I cry sometimes
When I'm lying in bed Just to get it all out
What's in my head
And I, I am feeling a little peculiar.

And so I wake in the morning
And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
What's going on?

And I say: HEY! yeah yeaaah, HEY yeah yea
I said hey, what's going on?

And I say: HEY! yeah yeaaah, HEY yeah yea
I said hey, what's going on?

ooh, ooh ooooooooooooooooh
ooh, ooh ooooooooooooooooh

and I try, oh my god do I try
I try all the time, in this institution

And I pray, oh my god do I pray
I pray all sanctity
For a revolution.

And so I cry sometimes
When I'm lying bed
Just to get it all out
What's in my head
And I, I am feeling a little peculiar

And so I wake in the morning
And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
What's going on?

And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?

And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?

And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?

And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?

ooh, ooh ooooooooooooooooh ooooooooooooooooh

Twenty-five years I'm alive here still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope

Till there ain't no more to go
Taking it slow
And Lord, don't you know
We'll have me a time with a poor man's lady

Hitchin' on a twilight train
Ain't nothing here that I care to take along
Maybe a song
To sing when I want
No need to say please to no man
For a happy tune

Oh, I love my Rosie child
You got the way to make me happy
You and me we go in style
Cracklin' Rose,
You're a store-bought woman
But you make me sing like a guitar hummin'
So hang on to me, girl,
Our song keeps runnin' on
Play it now, play it now
Play it now, my baby

Cracklin' Rosie, make me a smile
Girl, if it lasts for an hour, that's all right
We got all night to set the world right
Find us a dream that don't ask no questions
Yeah

Oh, I love my Rosie child
You got the way to make me happy
You and me we go in style
Cracklin' Rose,
You're a store-bought woman
But you make me sing like a guitar hummin'
So hang on to me, girl
Our song keeps runnin' on
Play it now, play it now
Play it now, my baby

Cracklin' Rosie, make me a smile
Girl, if it lasts for an hour, that's all right
We got all night
To set the world right
Find us a dream that don't ask no questions
Ba ba ba ba ba ......

Thunder Island, Jay jFergueson
Posted: 1/27/2013 3:40:52 PM
Sha-la-la-la-la-la my lady
In the sun with your hair undone
Can you hear me now calling your name
From across the bay
A summer's day laughing and a-hidin'
Chasing love out on Thunder Island

She was the color of the Indian summer
And we shared the hours without number
Until one day when the sky turned dark
And the winds grew wild
Caught by the rain and blinded by the lightnin'
We rode the storm out there on Thunder Island

I held her close
Until the storm passed
And we fell down laughing in the wet grass
Both our bodies drying in the sunshine, sweet sunshine
So, sha-la-la-la-la-la my lady
In the sun with your dress undone
Now, ev'ry mile away and ev'ry day
Cuts a little deeper
I'll remember the nights in the cool sand
Making love out on Thunder Island

ani difranco "which are you on"

"¿Which Side Are You On?"

They stole a few elections,
Still we the people won
We voted out corruption and
Big corporations

We voted for an end to war
New direction
We ain't gonna stop now
Until our job is done

Come on all good workers
This year is our time
Now there some folks in washington
Who cares what's on our minds

Come one-come all voters
Lets all vote next time
Show 'em which side are you on now
Which side are you on

Which side are you on now
Which side are you on
Which side are you on now
Which side are you on

Which side are you on now
Which side are you on
Which side are you on now
Which side are you on

30 years of diggin'
Got us in this hole
The curse of reaganomics
Has finally taken it's toll

Lord knows the free market
Is anything but free
It costs dearly to the planet
And the likes of you and me

I don't need those money lenders
Suckin' on my tit
A little socialism
Don't scare me one bit!

We could do a whole lot worse
Than europe or canada
C'mon mr. president
C'mon congress make the law

Which side are you on now
Which side are you on
Which side are you on now
Which side are you on

They say in orleans parish
There are no neutrals there
There's just too much misery
There's too much despair

America who are we
Now our innocence is gone
Which side are you on now
Which side are you on

Too many stories written
Out in black and white
C'mon people of privilege
It's time to join the fight

Are we living in the shadow of slavery
Or are we moving on
Tell me which side are you on now
Which side are you on

Which side are you on boys
Which side are you on
Which side are you on boys
Which side are you on
Which side are you on boys
Which side are you on
Which side are you on now
Which side are you on

My mother was a feminist
She taught me to see
That the road to ruin is paved
With patriarchy

So, let the way of the women
Guide democracy
From plunder and pollution
Let mother earth be free

Feminism ain't about women
No, that's not who it is for
It's about a shifting consciousness
That'll bring an end to war

So listen up you fathers
Listen up you sons
Which side are you on now
Which side are you on

Which side are you on now
Which side are you on
Which side are you on now
Which side are you on

So are we just consumers
Or are we citizens
Are we gonna make more garbage
Or are we gonna make amends

Are you part of the solution
Or are you part of the con?
Which side are you on now
Which side are you on?

Talking Heads, this is Wartime
Posted: 1/29/2013 2:36:50 AM
Heard of a van that is loaded with weapons, packed up & ready to go
Heard of some gravesites, out by the highway
A place where nobody knows
The sound of gunfire, off in the distance, I`m getting used to it now
Lived in a brownstone now, lived in the ghetto
I’ve lived all over this town

This ain`t no party, this ain`t no disco, this ain`t no fooling around
No time for dancing, or lovey dovey, I ain`t got time for that now

Transmit the message, to the receiver, hope for an answer someday
I got 3 passports, a couple of Visas, U don’t even know my real name
High on a hillside, the trucks are loading, everything’s ready to roll
Ah ha ha, I sleep in the daytime, I work in the nighttime
I might not ever get home

This ain`t no party, this ain`t no disco, this ain`t no fooling around
This ain`t no mudd club, or C.B.G.B., I ain`t got time for that now
Yeah! Woo!

This ain`t no party, this ain`t no disco, this ain`t no fooling around
No time for dancing, or lovey dovey, I ain`t got time for that now
Whoo!

Lovely Rita

Lovely Rita meter maid
Lovely Rita meter maid

Lovely Rita meter maid,
Nothing can come between us.
When it gets dark I tow your heart away.

Standing by a parking meter,
When I caught a glimpse of Rita,
Filling in a ticket in her little white book.
In a cap she looked much older,
And the bag across her shoulder
Made her look a little like a military man.

Lovely Rita meter maid,
May I inquire discreetly,
When are you free to take some tea with me?
(Rita!)

Took her out and tried to win her.
Had a laugh and over dinner,
Told her I would really like to see her again.
Got the bill and Rita paid it.
Took her home I nearly made it,
Sitting on the sofa with a sister or two.

Oh, lovely Rita meter maid,
Where would I be without you?
Give us a wink and make me think of you.

Only You Can Love Me This Way - Keith Urban
Posted: 1/29/2013 11:06:20 PM
Well I know there's a reason
And I know there's a rhyme
We were meant to be together
That's why ...
We can roll with the punches
We can stroll hand in hand
And when I say it's forever
You understand ...

That you're always in my heart,
You're always on my mind
But when it all becomes too much,
You're never far behind
And there's no one that comes close to you
Could ever take your place
Cause only you can love me this way

I could have turned a different corner
I could have gone another place
Then I'd of never had this feeling
That I feel today, yeah..

And you're always in my heart,
Always on my mind
When it all becomes too much,
You're never far behind
And there's no one that comes close to you
Could ever take your place
Cause only you can love me this way

Ooooh...

And you're always in my heart,
You're always on my mind
And when it all becomes too much,
you're never far behind
And there's no one that comes close to you
Could ever take your place
Cause only you can love me this way

Ooooh...

Only you can love me this way.

The Lumineers-The Dead Sea
Posted: 2/1/2013 3:47:21 AM
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYzEWsvtm3M



I stood alone, upon the platform in vain
Puerto Ricans they were playing me salsa in the rain
With open doors and manual locks
In fast food parking lots

I headed West, I was a man on the move
New York had lied to me, I needed the truth
Oh, I need somebody, I needed someone I could trust
I don't gamble, but if I did I would bet on us

Like the Dead Sea
You told me I was like the Dead Sea
You'll never sink when you are with me
Oh Lord, like the Dead Sea

Whoa, I'm like the Dead Sea
The finest words you ever said to me
Honey can't you see,
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea

You told me you were good at running away
Domestic life, it never suited you like a suitcase
You left with just the clothes on your back
You took the rest when you took the map

Yes, there are times we live for somebody else
Your father died and you decided to live
It for yourself you felt, you just felt it was time
And I'm glad, 'cause you with cats, that's just not right

Like the Dead Sea
You told me I was like the Dead Sea
You'll never sink when you are with me
Oh Lord, I'm your Dead Sea

Whoa, I'm like the Dead Sea
The finest words you ever said to me
Honey can't you see
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea

I've been down, I've been defeated
You're the message I was heeding
Would you stay,
Would you stay the night?

Dead Sea,
Told me I was like the Dead Sea
Never sink when you are with me
Oh Lord, I'm your Dead Sea

Whoa, I'm like the Dead Sea
The nicest words you ever said to me
Honey can't you see
I was born to be your Dead Sea

The Pogues - Haunted
Posted: 2/1/2013 3:51:41 AM
Nice call on the Pogues CheezyChick.
I don't think I've heard that one before ~


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLpcyHVhM4U


Do you remember that sunny day?
Somewhere in London
In the middle of nowhere
Didn't have nothing to do that day
Didn't wanna do nothing anyway

You got a way of walking
You got a way of talking
And there's something about you
And now I know I never ever
Want to be without you

[Chorus:]
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
Of your precious love
Of your precious love

The first time I saw you,
Standing in the street
You were so cool,
You could have put out Vietnam
My girlfriends ask me, "What's he like?"
I say, "He's kind of shy,
But that's the kind of girl I am,
He's my kind of guy"

[Chorus]

I'll build my world around you
I'll bless the day that I found you
I'll stand beside you, I'll never leave
Or tell you all those lies
That you'd never believe
