bob dylan they sat together in the park, as the evening sky grew dark, she looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones- twas then he felt alone and wished that he'd gone straight, annd watched out for a simple twist of fate 030903
...
bob dylan She lit a burner on the stove and offered me a pipe
"I thought you'd never say hello" she said
"You look like the silent type"
Then she opened up a book of poems
And handed it to me
Written by an Italian poet
From the thirteenth century
And every one of them words rang true
And glowed like burning coal
Pouring off of every page
Like it was written in my soul from me to you
Tangled up in blue

leonard cohen Suddenly the night has grown colder.
The god of love preparing to depart.
Alexandra hoisted on his shoulder,
They slip between the sentries of the heart.

Upheld by the simplicities of pleasure,
They gain the light, they formlessly entwine;
And radiant beyond your widest measure
They fall among the voices and the wine.

Itís not a trick, your senses all deceiving,
A fitful dream, the morning will exhaust Ė
Say goodbye to Alexandra leaving.
Then say goodbye to Alexandra lost.

Even though she sleeps upon your satin;
Even though she wakes you with a kiss.
Do not say the moment was imagined;
Do not stoop to strategies like this.

As someone long prepared for this to happen,
Go firmly to the window. Drink it in.
Exquisite music. Alexandra laughing.
Your firm commitments tangible again.

And you who had the honor of her evening,
And by the honor had your own restored Ė
Say goodbye to Alexandra leaving;
Alexandra leaving with her lord.

Even though she sleeps upon your satin;
Even though she wakes you with a kiss.
Do not say the moment was imagined;
Do not stoop to strategies like this.

As someone long prepared for the occasion;
In full command of every plan you wrecked Ė
Do not choose a cowardís explanation
that hides behind the cause and the effect.

And you who were bewildered by a meaning;
Whose code was broken, crucifix uncrossed Ė
Say goodbye to Alexandra leaving.
Then say goodbye to Alexandra lost.

Say goodbye to Alexandra leaving.
Then say goodbye to Alexandra lost.

lobsterman sometimes you'll be driving and you'll hear a song for the first time and you'll just be struck. it's like...yes...that's exactly it...that's exactly everything i already have and don't yet have. some songs just make you want to pick up and leave town and just drive untill you prove the world goes on forever. or just lie on your back and look up at the sky untill it feels like you're looking down on it 030903

unhinged you make me real
you make me real
as strong as i feel
you make me real
and lately i just can't seem to believe
discard my friends to change the scenery
it meant the world to hold a bruising faith
but now it's just a matter of grace
you make me real

i'll wait for you there
like a stone
i'll wait for you there

and i see no chance of release

but i am screaming underneath
and time is on your side
it's on your side now
not pushing you down
and all around
it's no cause for concern
.....
i hurt myself today
to see if i still feel
i focus on the pain
the only thing that's real....

so young
such a shame you've given up hope
so...to the fact that you can't cope
everyone here knows you're burning with
optimism's flame and low grade dope
didn't you
on your own?
.....
you know you're down when
you count the friends you have
but you only use one hand
honey
it finally hit your face
you're feeling mighty low
just slightly out of place
storm
your dreams have drown again
because you never learned to swim
growing older
but no better

silentlybroken And if I dream
I'll dream
Knowing you don't care
And if I sleep
Just to dream of you
I'll wake without you there
[[[Evanescence, missing]]]


I can't run anymore,
I fall before you,
Here I am,
I have nothing left,
Though I try to forget,
You're all that I am
Take me home,
I'm through fighting it,
Broken,
Lifeless,
I give up,
You're my only strength,
Without you,
I can't go on
Anymore
Ever again

RoXXXie but the girl on the car in the parking lot said 'man u should try and take a shot' cant u see my walls are crumbling? then she looks up at the building, says she's thinking of jumping, she says she's tired of life, she must be tired of something...round here

Now maybe, i could have made my own mistakes, but i
live with what i've
known
Yes maybe, we might share in something great but
won't you look at where
we've grown, wont you look at where we've gone
But then someday comes tommorrow holds, a sense of
what i fear for you
in my
mind, as you trip the final line
And that cold day when you lost control, shame you left
my life so soon
you
should have told me, but you left me far behind

just when everything was making sense
you took away all my self-confidence
now all that i've been hearing must be true
i guess i'm not the only boy for you
but that's what i get
that's what i get
that's what i get
that's what i get
how can you turn me into this?
after you just taught me how to kiss you
i told you i'd never say goodbye
now i'm slipping on the tears you made me cry
why's it come as a surprise
to think that i was so naive
maybe didn't mean that much
but it meant everything to me

her royal highness the quirk I dream of worlds where you'd understand
And I dream a million sleepless nights
I dream of fire when you're touching my hand
But it twists into smoke when I turn on the light
I'm speechless and faded
It's too complicated
Is this how the book ends?
Nothing but good friends?
This is the place in my heart
This is the place where I'm falling apart
Isn't this just where we met?
And is this the last chance that I'll ever get?
I wish I was lonely instead of just only
Crystal and see-through and not enough to you
'Cause you don't see me
And you don't need me
And you don't love me
The way I wish you would

Turnin' down to avoid them when they call
I can't believe this letter that says you died
I think I'm gonna go back the the house in North Carolina
And lay in the back yard
Get drunk and let the leaves just bury me, bury me

nisus Don't cry,
There's always a way
Here in November in this house of leaves
We'll pray
Please, I know it's hard to believe
To see a perfect forest
Through so many splintered trees
You and me
And these shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I'm haunted
By the promises I've made
And others I have broken
I'm haunted
By the lives that wove the web
Inside my haunted head

CHEAP TRICK THE FLAME

Another night slowly closes in
And I feel so lonely
Touching heat freezing on my skin
I pretend you still hold me

I'm going crazy I'm losing sleep I'm in too far
I'm in way too deep over you
I can't believe you're gone
You were the first you'll be the last

Wherever you go
I'll be with you
Whatever you want
I'll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon
Remember after the fire
After all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame

Watching shadows move across the wall
Feels so frightening
I wanna run to you I wanna call
But I've been hit by lightning
Just can't stand up for falling apart
Can't see through this veil
Across my heart over you
You'll always be the one
You were the first
You'll be the last

Wherever you go
I'll be with you
Whatever you want
I'll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon
Remember after the fire
After all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame

I'm going crazy
I'm losing sleep
I'm in way too deep over you
You'll always be the one
You were the first
You'll be the last

Wherever you go
I'll be with you
Whatever you want
I'll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon
Remember after the fire
After all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame

Bonnie Raitt I Can't Make You Love Me

Turn down the lights, turn down the bed
Turn down these voices inside my head
Lay down with me, tell me no lies
Just hold me close, don't patronize - don't patronize me

CHORUS:
Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't
Here in the dark, in these lonely hours
I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power
But you won't, no you won't
Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't


I'll close my eyes, then I won't see
The love you don't feel when you're holding me
Morning will come and I'll do what's right
Just give me till then to give up this fight
And I will give up this fight


CHORUS:
Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't
Here in the dark, in these lonely hours
I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power
But you won't, no you won't
Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't

:_) Daylight comes to those who live
But those who die they never see
The sun come shining throught their window pane
They pass away.

Silly girl to be a fool
You didn?t play the golden rule
'Cos once you're through with one world
Theres another waiting there

Chorus:
Help me such a lonely soul
In dreams
To leave behind the world.
Mr. Kindom help me please
To find the rainbows end

Looking from this empty room
The corridors of endless gloom
Go crawling through the night
To meet the dawn that's on its way.

Oh to sleep, per-chance to dream.
To live again those joyous scenes.
The laughter and the follies
That are locked inside my head.

I can dream of flying high
Above the city's cares and never be
afraid of anyone
'Cos there ain't no one there

megan I cannot stay here, I cannot leave
Just like all I loved, I'm make-believe
Imagined heart, I disappear
Seems...no one will appear here and make me real

There are no flowers, no, not this time
There will be no angels gracing the lines
Just these stark words I find
I'd show a smile, but I'm too weak
I'd share with you could I only speak
Just how much this hurts me
Just how much this hurts me
Just how much you

Surrounded by your glory
What will my heart feel?
Will I dance for you Jesus?
Will in awe of you be still?
Will I stand in your presence?
To my knees will I fall?
Will i sing hallelujah?
Will i be able to speak at all?

ya know Remember sitting on your car
That night?
Clouds rolled out unveiling lights around the bay,
And you told me all those things.
Remember that?
You told me you can't match your clothes.
Remember that?
I confess that when I laugh sometimes I'm crying,
Then we sat and didn't talk for a half an hour.
Remember that?
Alone?
'Cause I won't
Remember
Anymore.

--Ben Folds, "Wandering"


Eyeless in the morning sun
You were pale, mild, a modern girl
Taken with thought
Still prone to care
Making tea in your underwear
You went out in the yard to find something to eat
And clear your mind
And something bad inside me went away.

--The Shins, "Those to Come"


And it don't mean I don't love you
When I put a gun to your face
It just means I wanna get rough with you!
Baby's gonna be alright.

trixie See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you

Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised, she's got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

But I threw you the obvious
Just to see if there's more behind the
Eyes of a fallen angel
Eyes of a tragedy
Here I am expecting just a little bit
Too much from the wounded
But I see, see through it all
And see through
See you
So I threw you the obvious
To see what occurs behind the
Eyes of a fallen angel
Eyes of a tragedy

Oh well
Apparently nothing
Apparently nothing at all

...

Need more friends with wings
All the angels I know
Put concrete in my veins

Thereís nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
Thereís nothing to gain
And I just died today

And I thought what I felt was simple,
And I thought that I don't belong,
And now that I am leaving,
Now I know that I did something wrong 'cause I mised you

And you say, "Stay."

Sometimes you're so far away, tell me what to do

Sometimes I just can't believe everything you do
I say, Baby . . . sometimes I worry about you
Every day I feel the same, don't you feel it too
I say, Baby . . . sometimes I worry about me
Seems I'm falling down a lot, in between the scenes

Going to die
Underneath the chilly grey november sky
We can make believe
That kennedy is still alive
Weíre shooting for the moon and smiling
Jackieís driving by

They say - good try -
Tomorrow wendyís going to die

Any second coming.
God got his ass kicked the first time he
Came down here slumming
He had the balls to come, the gall to die

Ten years ago, on a cold dark night
Someone was killed, 'neath the town hall light
There were few at the scene, but they all agreed
That the slayer who ran, looked a lot like me

The judge said son, what is your alibi
If you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die
I spoke not a word, thou it meant my life
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife

Chorus
She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me

Oh, the scaffold is high and eternity's near
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But late at night, when the north wind blows
In a long black veil, she cries ov're my bones

I ruse the day that I ever met you,
And deeply regret you getting close to me.
I cannot wait to deeply neglect you,
Deeply forget you, jesus believe me
You promised me poems.
You might have been my reason for liviní

A couple of dreamers,
So how come you hate me?
You promised me poems
You promised me poems
You promised me poems

misstree We were both cast forth from the same pale hand
And we both moved freely in the shadowlands
And we both were sculpted by the same cold wind
And we both had armor that was made of tin
And I tried to find you, but it's useless
And I tried to speak, but it was useless
And I felt so bad and I didn't know why
And it didn't get better as time went by
I was there for you, but you turned away
And I tried to find you, but you turned away
And I tried to find you, but it's useless
And I tried to speak, but was useless
And I tried to find you, but it's useless
And you're so close, but I can't see you
And you're right there, but I can't see you
And I feel so dumb and I didn't know what to do
You were right there but I can't see you
And I realize that it's useless
And I want to fight, but it's useless
And I know you're there, but it's useless
And you're everywhere, but it's useless
And I tried to say it, but my tongue got tied
And I tried to say it, but I was numb inside
And I can't see you anymore
And my peace of mind has gone through the door
And I realize that it's useless
And I thought I was right, but it was useless
And I know you're there, but it's useless
And you're everywhere, but it's useless
And I can't see now in front of my nose
And I know you're there, and I know you're close
And you're fading away - now you disappear
And I try to focus, but I can't see clear
And I don't know why I feel this way
And I can't control myself anyway
And I don't know why I feel this way
And I can't control myself anyway

Feels so good but damn it makes me hurt
And I'm too scared to know to how I feel about you now

concha and so she woke up, woke up from where she was lying still
aaid I got to do something about where we're going
step on a steam train, step out of the driving rain
maybe run from the darkness in the night

singing ha la la la de day
ha la la la de day ha la la de day

sweet the sin, bitter the taste in my mouth
i see seven towers but i only see one way out
you got to cry with out weeping, talk without speaking
scream without raising your voice
you know i took the poison from the poison stream
then i floated out of here

singing ha la la la de day
ha la la la de day ha la la de day

she runs through the streets with her eyes painted red
under a black belly of cloud in the rain
in through a doorway she brings me
white gold and pearls stolen from the sea
she is raging, she is raging
and the storm blows up in her eyes
she will suffer the needle chill
she is running to stand still

unhinged while this town is busy sleeping
all the noise is died away
i walk the streets to stop my weeping
cause she'll never change her ways
don't fool yourself
she was heartache from the moment that you met her
my heart feels so still
as i try to find the will
to forget her somehow
i think i've forgotten her now
her love is a rose painted dying
dropping her petals ...and low
all full of wine
the world before her
all sober with no place to go
don't fool yourself
she was heartache from the moment that you met her
my heart is frozen still
as i try to find the will
to forget her somehow
she's somewhere out there now
my tears falling down
as i try to forget
her love was ajoke
from the day that we met
all of the words
all of her men
all of my pain when i think back to when
remember her hair when it shone in the sun
spatter on the bed
when i knew what she'd done
tell yourself over and over
you won't ever need her again
but don't fool yourself
she was heartache from the moment that you met her
my heart is frozen still
as i try to find the will
to forget her somehow
she's out there somewhere now
she was heartache from the day that i first met her
my heart is frozen still
as i try to find the will
to forget you somehow
cause i know you're somewhere out there right now

so when you come back, we'll have to make new love.
