1. Sheila, Take A Bow ~ The Smiths

Is it wrong to want to live on your own ?
No, it's not wrong - but I must know
How can someone so young
Sing words so sad ?

Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow
Boot the grime of this world in the crotch, dear
And don't go home tonight
Come out and find the one that you love and who loves you
The one that you love and who loves you
Oh ...


Is it wrong not to always be glad ?
No, it's not wrong - but I must add
How can someone so young
Sing words so sad ?


Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow
Boot the grime of this world in the crotch, dear
And don't go home tonight
Come out and find the one that you love and who loves you
The one that you love and who loves you


Take my hand and off we stride
Oh, la ...
You're a girl and I'm a boy
La ...
Take my hand and off we stride
Oh, la ...
I'm a girl and you're a boy
La ...


Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow
La ...
Throw your homework onto the fire
Come out and find the one that you love
Come out and find the one you love
2. See the Changes ~ Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young

She has seen me changing
It ain't easy rearranging.
And it gets harder as you get older,
Farther away as you get closer.

And I don't know the answer.
Does it even matter?
I'm wonderin' how.

Ten years singing right out loud
I never looked was anybody listening.
Then I fell out of a cloud
Hit the ground and noticed something missing.
Now I have someone,
She has seen me changing,
And it gets harder as you get older,
Farther away as you get closer.

And I don't know the answer.
Does it even matter?
I'm wonderin' how.

Seems like something out of a dream
I had years ago, yes I remember screaming.
Nobody laughing
All the good times
Getting harder to come by without weeping.


3. Addiciton ~ Depeche Mode

I can't help it, I'm not sure what to do
Does seem crazy, no good for my health
I've seen the doctor, he's come to look at me
If you don't believe it, don't believe

Closer all the time, Closer all the time
Closer all the time, Closer all the time

Now I'm saying how I'm going to need a pill
I need you like a drug to keep my fill
I can't remember everything I do
Now I put them, it's only good to you

Closer all the time, Closer all the time
Closer all the time, Closer all the time

You can't help but look me in the eye
While I come running, I don't know why
It's an addiction, image of love
Your heart pushing, angel from above

Closer all the time, Closer all the time
Closer all the time, Closer all the time
Closer all the time, Closer all the time
Close

4. Gravity ~ Embrace

Honey, It's been a long time coming
And I can't stop now
Such a long time running
And I can't stop now
Do you hear my heart beating
Can you hear that sound
Cause I can't help thinking
And I don't look down

And then I looked up at the sun and I could see
Oh the way that gravity turns for you and me
And then I looked up at the sky and saw the sun
And the way that gravity pulls on everyone, on everyone

Baby, It's been a long time waiting
Such a long, long time
And I can't stop smiling
No I can't stop now
And do you hear my heart beating
And can you hear that sound
Cause I can't help crying
And I won't look down

And then I looked up at the sun and I could see
Oh the way that gravity turns on you and me
And then I looked up at the sun and saw the sky
And the way that gravity pulls on you and I, on you and I

Can you hear my heart beating
Can you hear that sound
Cause I can't help crying
And I wont look down



5. This Protector ~ The White Stripes

I never knew that I had to be this protector
so many thoughts inside my head a strange collector

But now
but now
but now
now, now, now, now, now

You thought you heard a sound
there's no one else around
looking at the door
it's coming through the floor

300 people living out in west virginia
have no idea of all these thoughts that lie within ya
but now
but now
but now
now, now, now, now, now

You thought you heard a sound
there's no one else around
looking at the door
it's coming through the floor


6. Black Betty ~ (Ram Jam) Huddle Ledbetter

Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Black Betty had a child (Bam-ba-Lam)
The damn thing gone wild (Bam-ba-Lam)
She said, "I'm worryin' outta mind" (Bam-ba-Lam)
The damn thing gone blind (Bam-ba-Lam)
I said Oh, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)

Oh, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
She really gets me high (Bam-ba-Lam)
You know that's no lie (Bam-ba-Lam)
She's so rock steady (Bam-ba-Lam)
And she's always ready (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)

Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
She's from Birmingham (Bam-ba-Lam)
Way down in Alabam' (Bam-ba-Lam)
Well, she's shakin' that thing (Bam-ba-Lam)
Boy, she makes me sing (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty BAM-BA-LAM

7. Complainte de la Butte ~ Rufus Wainwright

La lune, trop blême,
pose un diadème
sur tes cheveux roux.
La lune, trop rousse,
de gloire éclabousse
ton jupon plein de trous.
La lune, trop pâle,
caresse l'opale
de tes yeux blasés.
Princesse de la rue,
sois la bienvenue
dans mon coeur brisé.

The stairways up to la butte
can make the wretched sigh.
While windmill wings of the Moulin
shelter you and I.

Ma p'tite mandigotte,
je sens ta menotte
qui cherche ma main.
Je sens ta poitrine
et ta taille fine,
j'oublie mon chagrin.
Je sens sur tes lèvres
une odeur de fièvre,
de gosse mal nourrie,
et sous ta caresse,
je sens une ivresse
qui m'anéantit.

The stairways up to la butte
Can make the wretched sigh
While windmill wings of the Moulin
Shelter you and I

Mais voilà qu'elle trotte,
la lune qui flotte,
la princesse aussi.

lalala....

Mes rêves épanouis.

Les escaliers de la butte
sont durs aux miséreux.
Les ailes du Moulin
protègent les amoureux.


8. We Never Change ~ Coldplay

I wanna live life and never be cruel
I wanna live life and be good to you

And I wanna fly and never come down
And live my life and have friends around

We never change, do we? no, no
We never learn, do we?

So I wanna live in a wooden house

I wanna live life and always be true
I wanna live life and be good to you

And I wanna fly and never come down
And live my life and have friends around

We never change, do we? No, no
We never learn, do we?

So I wanna live in a wooden house
where making more friends would be easy

Oh, and I don´t have a soul to save
Yes, and I sin every single day

We never change, do we?
We never learn, do we?

So I wanna live in a wooden house
Where making more friends would be easy
I wanna live where the sun comes out ...


9. How Beautiful You Are ~ The Cure

you want to know why i hate you?
well i'll try and explain...

you remember that day in paris
when we wandered through the rain
and promised to each other
that we'd always think the same
and dreamed that dream
to be two souls as one

and stopped just as the sun set
and waited for the night
outside a glittering building
of glittering glass and burning light...

and in the road before us
stood a weary greyish man
who held a child upon his back
a small boy by the hand
the three of them were dressed in rags
and thinner than air
and all six eyes stared fixedly on you

the father's eyes said "beautiful!
how beautiful you are!"
the boy's eyes said
"how beautiful!
she shimmers like a star!"
the child's eyes uttered nothing
but a mute and utter joy
and filled my heart with shame for us
at the way we are

i turned to look at you
to read my thought upon your face
and gazed so deep into your eyes
so beautiful and strange
until you spoke
and showed me understanding is a dream
"i hate these people staring
make them go away from me!"

the father's eyes said "beautiful!
how beautiful you are!"
the boy's eyes said
"how beautiful! she glitters like a star!"
the child's eyes uttered nothing
but quiet and utter joy
and stilled my heart with sadness
for the way we are...

and this is why i hate you
and how i understand
that no-one ever knows or loves another
or loves another

10. Exquisite Corpse ~ Bauhaus

1. Life is but a dream repeat

2. I make the air fall apart
Around me
Now as the petals are no more
A corroding, shrinking stalk remains
Bereft of his blooms
And the ultimate cruelty of loves pinions
Beset his appearance
Beset his appearance
No king could replenish his state
Now browning, sinking, dying
A thousand deaths x3

3. Terry sat up
And hugged the green army surplus bag
Around his skinny waist
It was cold
And the person beside him had faded badly
Legs apart his eyes lit up
THE SKY'S GONE OUT - THE SKY, THE SKY...
THE SKY'S GONE OUT

4. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

5. The sky's gone out

11. He's Funny That Way ~ Billie Holiday

Never had nothing
No one to care
That's why I seem to have
More than my share
I've got a man crazy for me
He's funny that way

When I hurt his feelings
Once in a while
His only answer is one little smile
I've got that man crazy for me
He's funny that way

I can see no other way
And no better plan
End it all and let him go
To some better gal
But I'm only human
A coward at best
I'm more than certain
He'd follow me West
I've got that man crazy for me
He's funny that way


Though he loves to work
And slave for me everyday
He'd be so much better off
If I went away
But why should I leave him
Why should I go
He'd be unhappy without me I know
I've got that man crazy for me
He's funny that way

12. For Emily, Whenever I May FInd Her ~ Simon & Garfunkel

What I dream I had:
Pressed in organdy;
Clothed in crinoline of smoky Burgundy;
Softer than the rain.
I wandered empty streets
Down past the shop displays.
I heard cathedral bells
Tripping down the alley ways,
As I walked on.

And when you ran to me
Your cheeks flushed with the night.
We walked on frosted fields of juniper and lamplight,
I held your hand.
And when I awoke and felt you warm and near,
I kissed your honey hair with my grateful tears.
Oh I love you, girl.
Oh, I love you.


13. Length of Love ~ Interpol

This could be destiny, oh sweetheart
I've had no sense of time since we started this thing out
I've got friends in need oh sweetheart
I'd grown lengths and lengths and lengths of love Since we started this thing out

Combat salacious removal

There is a bitter breed,oh sweetheart
They will be watching you sometimes
With their bitter hearts

But we went through with these
Oh we're shifting the heartache
We want strong summer love the most robust of blood
Just to stay awake

Combat salacious removal
Combat salacious removal

Combat salacious removal

Current Mood: blahblah
Current Music: cupid.
