Feyokien: I knew somebody who was a big Warren Zevon fan--to the point where he was extremely sad when he passed away.

I haven't heard too many of his other songs, though.

Years ago, my heart was set to live, oh
But I've been trying hard against unbelievable odds
It gets so hard in times like now to hold on
My guns they're waiting to be stuck by
At my side is God (NOTE: not religious but this jibes with my belief there is a positive power or force - maybe that's what Big Star meant as well)

And there ain't no one goin' turn me 'round
Ain't no one goin' turn me 'round

There's people around who tell you that they know
The places where they send you, and it's easy to go
They'll zip you up and dress you down
Stand you in a row
But you know you don't have to
You could just say no

And there ain't no one goin' turn me 'round
Ain't no one goin' turn me 'round
Ain't no one goin' turn me 'round
Ain't no one goin' turn me 'round

I've been built up and trusted
Broke down and busted
But they'll get theirs and we'll get ours
Just if we can
Just, ah, hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on

Years ago my heart was set to live, oh
But I've been trying hard against strong odds
It gets so hard at times like now to hold on
Well, I'll fall if I don't fight
And at my side is God

Ain't there no one goin' turn me 'round
Ain't no one goin' turn me 'round
Ain't no one goin' turn me 'round

That's right....as long as you don't hurt somebody else, it's proper to assert the right to "be yourself."

Don't let people change you....unless it would definitely be a positive change for you.

Agreed, Kortie. BTW, thanks for putting Zevon in my head. I just put on Werewolves of London and I'm howling at the ceiling. :) Love that song.

What's funny is that I want to howl with every thing inside me, but too self conscious. Even when alone and nobody to bear witness, I am that self conscious.

Go guys, go!!

"Sleepwalking" has been my theme song for almost three years now.
The words have been in my signature since I joined.
The singer of the song has always been my avatar.
I'm not getting over this obsession any time soon.

I remember you mentioning your avatar before in relation to something before. But I did not get the reference at all. Now it all makes sense.....Nice to put that one to rest LOL

The manliest love song I know





You are in Shock! With love, the sky comes crumbling down
You are in Shock! It comes crumbling down into my heart
Even if you bind this fervid heart down in chains, it’s now to no avail
I’ll knock down whoever stands in my way with but a fillip of my finger

You are in Shock! With love, pulses quicken
You are in Shock! With love, my pulse quickens
Seeking you, this vagrant heart is now fervidly ablaze..
.. mercilessly thrusting around and melting everything

So as to safeguard our love..
.. you set out on a journey.. losing sight of tomorrow
Your face, so oblivious of a smile.. is not what I desire to see..
.. bring love back!



You are in Shock! With love, tear darkness into pieces
You are in Shock! Tear my darkness into pieces
None will ever be able to spoil the serenity between us two
These consolidating bonds, shall never again come apart

So as to safeguard our love..
.. you set out on a journey.. losing sight of tomorrow
Your face, so oblivious of a smile.. is not what I desire to see..
.. bring love back!

Marina and The Diamonds - Solitaire


Pretty much everything about the song gets to me. But particularly

Quote:
And all the fakes, they called me cursed
But I'm not cursed, I'm not cursed


Devo - Mongoloid
Mongoloid is the old word for Down's Syndrome
A lot of the lyrics in the song are relevant for autistics that can "pass". And there is Devo's spastic movements



Mongoloid, he was a mongoloid
One chromosome too many

Mongoloid, he was a mongoloid
And it determined what he could see

And he wore a hat
And he had a job
And he brought home the bacon
So that no one knew

He was a mongoloid

Mongoloid, he was a mongoloid
His friends were unaware

Mongoloid, he was a mongoloid
Nobody even cared

Too much time on my hands as been my theme song for years. I don't feel like I have a lot of time, but it looks like it to other people because the things I do are things they don't have time to do (video games, knitting, baking, working with my dogs, etc...)

Quote:
Yeah, here I am sitting on this bar stool,
Talking like a damn fool
Got the twelve o'clock news blues
And I've given up hope for the afternoon soaps
And a bottle of cold brew
Is it any wonder I'm not crazy
Is it any wonder I'm sane at all

Well I'm so tired of losing
I've got nothing to do and all day to do it
Well I'd go out cruising, but I've no place
To go and all night to get there
Is it any wonder I'm not a criminal
Is it any wonder I'm not in jail

Is it any wonder I've got too much time on my hands
It's ticking away with my sanity
I've got too much time on my hands
It's hard to believe such a calamity
I've got too much time on my hands
And it's ticking away, ticking away from me

(Too much time on my hands)
It's tick tick tick tick ticking away
(Too much time on my hands)
And I don't know what to do with myself
(Too much time on my hands)

(Too much time on my hands)
(Too much time on my hands)
(Too much time on my hands)

Now I'm a jet fuel genius
I can solve the world's problems
Without even trying
I've got dozens of friends, and the fun never ends
That is as long as I'm buying
Is it any wonder I'm not the President
Is it any wonder I'm null and void

Is it any wonder I've got too much
Time on my hands
It's ticking away with my sanity
I've got too much time on my hands
It's hard to believe such a calamity
I've got too much time on my hands
And it's ticking away, ticking away from me

(Too much time on my hands)
Ticky tick tick tick tick ticking away
(Too much time on my hands)
And I don't know what to do with myself
(Too much time on my hands)
Umm mmm
(Too much time on my hands)
Tick tick tick ticking away
(Too much time on my hands)
Umm mmm
(Too much time on my hands)
Too much time on my hands
Too much time on my



For a while I'd listen to Hold On every night before I went to bed when I was in school.
Quote:
I know this pain
Why do lock yourself up in these chains?
No one can change your life except for you
Don't ever let anyone step all over you
Just open your heart and your mind
Is it really fair to feel this way inside?

[Chorus:]
Some day somebody's gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don't you know?
Don't you know things can change
Things'll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on for one more day
Things'll go your way
Hold on for one more day

You could sustain
Or are you comfortable with the pain?
You've got no one to blame for your unhappiness
You got yourself into your own mess
Lettin' your worries pass you by
Don't you think it's worth your time
To change your mind?

[Chorus]

I know that there is pain
But you hold on for one more day and
Break free the chains
Yeah I know that there is pain
But you hold on for one more day and you
Break free, break from the chains

Some day somebody's gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don't you know?
Don't you know things can change
Things'll go your way
If you hold on for one more day yeah
If you hold on

Don't you know things can change
Things'll go your way
If you hold on for one more day,
If you hold on
Can you hold on
Hold on baby
Won't you tell me now
Hold on for one more day 'Cause
It's gonna go your way

Don't you know things can change
Things'll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can't you change it this time

Make up your mind
Hold on
Hold on
Baby hold on




Then of course there's Magic Power, which just makes me feel good.

Quote:
Something's at the edge of your mind
You don't know what it is
Something you were hoping to find
But you're not sure what it is
Then you hear the music
And it all comes crystal clear
The music does the talking
Says the things you want to hear

I'm young, I'm wild and I'm free
Got the magic power of the music in me
I'm young, I'm wild and I'm free
Got the magic power of the music in me

She climbs into bed
She pulls the covers overhead
And she turns her little radio on
She's had a rotten day
So she hopes the DJ's
Gonna play her favorite song

Makes her feel much better
Brings her closer to her dreams
A little magic power
Makes it better that it seems

She's young now, she's wild now, she wants to be free
She gets the magic power of the music from me
She's young now, she's wild now, she wants to be free
She gets the magic power of the music from me

You're thinking it over
But you just can't sort it out
Do you want someone to tell you
What they think it's all about
Are you the one and only
Who's sad and lonely
You're reaching for the top
Well, the music keeps you going
And it's never gonna stop
It's never gonna stop
It's never gonna, never gonna, never gonna, never gonna stop

The world is full of compromise
And infinite red tape
But the music's got the magic
It's your one chance for escape
Turn me on, turn me up
It's your turn to dream
A little magic power
Makes it better than it seems

I'm young now, I'm wild now, I want to be free
Got the magic power of the music in me
I'm young now, I'm wild and I'm free
Got the magic power of the music
I got the music in me

I got the power
I got the magic
She's got the power
She's got the magic
She's got the power
She's got the magic
She's got the power
She's got the magic
