Long Ago And Far Away - James Taylor

Long ago a young man sits and plays his waiting game
But things are not the same it seems as in such tender dreams
Slowly passing sailing ships and sunday afternoon
Like people on the moon I see are things not meant to be

Where do those golden rainbows end?
Why is this song so sad?
Dreaming the dreams I've dreamed my friend
Loving the love I love

To love is just a word I've heard when things are being said
Stories my poor head has told me cannot stand the cold
And in between what might have been and what has come to pass
A misbegotten guess alas and bits of broken glass

Where do your golden rainbows end?
Why is this song I sing so sad?
Dreaming the dreams I dream my friend
Loving the love I love to love to love to love

The Day After The Revolution - Pulp

The dust has settled,
replaced the bulbs in all the lights.
I guess I'll get no sleep tonight.
A revolution happened.
Oh, sorry you haven't heard?
We are the children of the new world.
If you're quiet you can watch if you like.
They say the future's beginning tonight.
Whole empires will crumble.
Civilisations will fall.
Lie on the bed, hear the sound of it all.
No anger, no guilt & no sorrow:
it sounds unlikely, I know,
but tomorrow you will wake up to find that your whole life has changed.
Although nothing looks different a revolution took place.

I love the way you do it,
I love the way you put them on.
You know the answers but you get it
wrong. (Just to confuse things).
Why did it seem so difficult to realise a simple truth?
The revolution begins & ends with you.

Now all the breakdowns
& nightmares look small.
Now we decided not to die after all.
Because the meek shall inherit absolutely nothing at all.
If you stopped being so feeble you could have so much more.
The answer was here

"Hurricane Party" by Cowboy Mouth :arrow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDVm5dVZ9aM


A hurricane party is out of control
I'm lyin' in the gutter eatin' Tootsie Rolls
Red ant bites all over my ass
Beatin' on my buddies with a baseball bat

We had a little party, me and my friends
A hurricane was comin' to New Orleans again
Somebody brought scotch, somebody brought beer
I should've kept the hooch and thrown 'em outta here

A friendly game, a penny and hand
Smoke a cigar, act like a man
Waitin' for the Gale force winds to blow
Shovel up the guards and let the liquor flow

CHORUS

Somebody's girlfriend showed up by surprise
With cookies in her hands and dollar signs in her eyes
I started dippin' them cookies in scotch
She won all my money and my pocket watch

Well I passed out, and I woke up
The house was empty and so was my cup
And out on the front porch, I heard 'em shout
I wish they'd come in so I could throw 'em out

CHORUS

Everybody's wrestling out on the dirt
I laughed so hard 'till my stomach hurt
They saw me gleam?, they heard me laugh
They started chargin' at me, and I grabbed the bat

CHORUS

Beatin' on my buddies with a baseball bat (x3)

Here's more great song lyrics "Girl Anachronism" by The Dresden Dolls :arrow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sO5APfKnR50


1, 2, 3, 4

you can tell
from the scars on my arms
and the cracks in my hips
and the dents in my car
and the blisters on my lips
that I'm not the carefullest of girls

you can tell
from the glass on the floor
and the strings that are breaking
and i keep on breaking more
and it looks like i am shaking
but it's just the temperature
then again
if it were any colder i could disengage
if i were any older i would act my age
but i don't think that you'd believe me
it's not the way I'm meant to be
it's just the way the operation made me

and you can tell
from the state of my room
that they let me out too soon
and the pills that i ate
came a couple years too late
and I've got some issues to work through
there i go again
pretending to be you
make-believing
that i have a soul beneath the surface
trying to convince you
it was accidentally on purpose

i am not so serious
this passion is a plagiarism
i might join your century
but only on a rare occasion
i was taken out
before the labor pains set in and now
behold the world's worst accident
i am the girl anachronism

and you can tell
by the red in my eyes
and the bruises on my thighs
and the knots in my hair
and the bathtub full of flies
that I'm not right now at all
there i go again
pretending that i'll fall
don't call the doctors
they've seen it all before
they'll say just
let her crash and burn, she'll learn
(the attention just encourages her)

and you can tell
from the full-body cast
that you're sorry that you asked
that you did everything you could
(like any decent person would)
but i might be catching so don't touch
you'll start believing you're immune to gravity and stuff
don't get me wet
because the bandages will all come off

you can tell
from the smoke at the stake
that the current state is critical
well it is the little things, for instance:
in the time it takes to break it she can make up ten excuses:
please excuse her for the day, its just the way the medication makes her...

i don't necessarily believe there is a cure for this
so i might join your century but only as a doubtful guest
i was too precarious removed as a cesarean
behold the worlds worst accident
I AM THE GIRL ANACHRONISM
(I'M THE GIRL ANACHRONISM)
I AM THE GIRL ANACHRONISM
(I'M THE GIRL ANACHRONISM)
I am the girl ...
I am the girl ...
I am the girl ...
I AM THE GIRL ANACHRONISM

Like a shipwrecked mariner adrift on an unknown sea,
Clinging to the wreckage of the lost ship Fantasy,
I'm a castaway, stranded in a desolate land,
I can see the footprints in the virtual sand

Net boy, net girl,
Send your signal 'round the world,
Let your fingers walk and talk
And set you free,
Net boy, net girl,
Send your impulse 'round the world,
Put your message in a modem
And throw it in the Cyber Sea

Astronauts in the weightlessness of pixellated space
Exchange graffiti with a disembodied race
I can save the universe in a grain of sand,
I can hold the future in my virtual hand

Net boy, net girl,
Send your signal 'round the world,
Let your fingers walk and talk
And set you free,
Net boy, net girl,
Send your impulse 'round the world,
Put your message in a modem
And throw it in the Cyber Sea

Let's dance tonight to a virtual song
Press this key and you can play along
Let's fly tonight on our virtual wings
Press this key to see amazing things

Like a pair of vagabonds who wave between two passing trains,
Or the glimpse of a woman's smile through a window in the rain,
I can smell her perfume, I can taste her lips,
I can feel the voltage from her fingertips

Net boy, net girl
Send your heartbeat round the world,
Let your fingers walk and talk
And set you free,
Net boy, net girl,
Send your impulse 'round the world
Put your message in a modem
And throw it in the Cyber Sea...

- Rush, "Virtuality", Test For Echo (1996)

King Missile - Cheesecake Truck

So then I got this idea
about driving a cheesecake truck,
'Cause I figured at the end of the day,
I could take some of
the leftover cheesecake home
And I love cheesecake.
So I went to the cheesecake company
And they asked me
if I could drive a truck
And I said "yes"
And they said "You're hired!"
So the next day
I got in the truck with all
the cheesecakes
And I drove about a block
and I just had to have a cheesecake
So I pulled over and opened the truck
And I got a cheesecake
And I also took another one for later
And I took one to bring home
And I took one for my friend Farm boy,
And by that time I had
Eaten one of the cheesecakes
so I took another one.
Then I figured I might as well
stop at my house
To drop off all the cheesecakes
So I take five cakes
to eat on the way
And i drive another block
and a half to my house.
Now it's lunchtime
so I eat ten cheesecakes
And a cheesecake for dessert.
I should point out by the way
That all of these cheesecakes
were very delicious.
Anyway I decided
that the only thing to do
Would be to eat all the rest
of the cheesecakes
And hide the truck somewhere
And leave town.
And I miss everybody a lot
But I'm not really sorry,
'Cause they were
very delicious cheesecakes.

scarlet begonias - sublime

as I was walkin' down rubadub square
not a chill to the wind but a nip to the air
from another direction she was caught in my eye
It could be an illusion but I might as well try
might as well try

she had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes
and I knew without asking- she was into the blues
she wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls
I knew right away she was not like other girls
like other girls

well I ain't never been right as I ain't never been wrong
as heaven works out the way it does in this song (hey)
'cuz once in awhile you get shown in the light in the strangest of places
if you look at it right

it was the summer of love and I thank the stars above
because the woman took a lovin' over me
and just to gain her trust I bought a microbus
because I sold off all my personal property

a tight tye-dye dress she was a psychadelic mess
we toured to the north, south, east, and west
we sold some mushroom tea we sold some ecstasy, we sold nitrous, opium,
acid, heroin, and pcp

and now I hear the police comin' after me
yes now I hear the police comin' after me
the one scarlet with the flowers in her hair she's got the police comin'
after me

but there ain't nothin' wrong with the way she moves
all scarlet begonias and a touch of the blues
and there ain't nothin' wrong with the love that's in her eye
I had to learn the hard way just to let her pass by
let it pass by
oh just let her pass by

Alice in Chains-Your Decision

Time to change has come and gone
Watched your fears become your God

It's your decision
It's your decision

Overwhelmed, you chose to run
Apathetic to the stunned

It's your decision
It's your decision

You feed the fire that burned us all
When you lied
To feel the pain that spurs you on
Black inside

No one plans to take the path that brings you lower
And here you stand before us all and say it's over
It's over

It might seem an afterthought
Yes it hurts to know you're bought

It's your decision
It's your decision

You feed the fire that burned us all
When you lied
To feel the pain that spurs you on
Black inside

It's your decision
http://www.elyricsworld.com/your_decisi ... hains.html
It's your decision

No one plans to take the path that brings you lower
And here you stand before us all and say it's over
It's over

It's over

"I Hear You Knocking" - Dave Edmunds



You went away and left me long time ago
Now you're knocking on my door
I hear you knocking, but you can't come in
I hear you knocking, go back where you been

I begged you not to go but you said goodbye
And now you're telling me all your lies
I hear you knocking, but you can't come in
I hear you knocking, go back where you been

You better get back to your used-to-be
Cos you're kinda love aint good for me
I hear you knocking, but you can't come in
I hear you knocking, go back where you been

I told you way back in fifty two
That I would never go with you
I hear you knocking but you can't come in
I hear you knocking, go back where you been
