I like this song whenever I'm angry with mine or simply need my own space as is typical with Leos :

"Here with me" by Dido

quote:
I didn't hear you leave
I wonder how am I still here
And I don't want to move a thing
It might change my memory


Oh I am what I am
I do what I want
But I can't hide


And I won't go
I won't sleep
I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me


And I won't leave
I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here with me


I don't want to call my friends
For they might wake me from this dream
And I can't leave this bed
Risk forgetting all that's been


Oh I am what I am
I do what I want
But I can't hide


And I won't go
I won't sleep
I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me


I won't leave
I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here


I won't go
And I won't sleep
And I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me


And I won't leave
I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here with me


Oh I am what I am
I do what I want
But I can't hide


And I won't go
I won't sleep
And I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me


I won't leave
I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here


And I won't go
And I won't sleep
And I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me


I won't leave
I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here with me

"I went to see a friend tonight
was very late when I walked in
My talking as it rambled
Revealed suspicious reasoning
The visit seemed to darken him
I came in as bright
As a neon light
And I burned out
Right there before him
I told him these things
Im telling you now
Watched them buckle up
In his brow
When you dig down deep
You lose good sleep
And it makes you
Heavy company"

Hmmm... Joni Mitchell, eh?
I've only heard her name mentioned in the movie "You've Got Mail." I love that movie.
Always wondered about her. I will have to check her out. Thanks girls

Big Yellow Taxi - joni mitchell


They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique
And a swinging hot SPOT

Donít it always seem to go
That you don't know what youíve got
ĎTil it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

They took all the trees
And put them in a tree museum
And they charged the people
A dollar and a half just to see 'em

Don't it always seem to go,
That you don't know what youíve got
ĎTil itís gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Hey farmer, farmer
Put away that DDT now
Give me spots on my apples
But LEAVE me the birds and the bees
Please!

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what youíve got
ĎTil its gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Late last night
I heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi
Took away my old man

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what youíve got
ĎTil itís gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

I said
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what youíve got
ĎTil itís gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Hi Steve Was that her original? I heard the Amy Grant version first and there has been a more recent version, hmmm... can't think of the band but everyone probably knows. Well, cool I always loved that one.

Thanks for the links, Zala!! I listened to the third one, and will listen to the others soon. (I have to wait a long time for the download with dial-up!) I didn't get to give it my full attention earlier, but the overall sound was very nice.

Here's the one I sing so much that my 3 "year old" daughter sang it today in a dressing room while I was trying on jeans:

Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
And 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'm, 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?

ooh, ooh ooh

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 every single day
For a revolution
And so I cry sometimes
When I'm lying in bed
Just to get it all out
What's in my head
And I'm, 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?
Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination

*

What's Up / 4 Non-Blondes

Well, she just sings parts of it, and she doesn't fully know what she is saying, but it's funny when she sings, "and I'm feeling... a little peculiar". LOL
Yes, yes, I'm poisoning her mind.

Revolution!!! I'll have a little baby Stewie on my hands soon...

This is one of my favorite angry/confused songs of all time. I'm in a delicious mood after getting my music fix this evening... but oh how I have identified with this song at times...

"By Myself"

What do I do to ignore them behind me?
Do I follow my instincts blindly?
Do I hide my pride from these bad dreams?
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?
Do I sit here and try to stand it?
Or do I try to catch them red-handed?
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness,
Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?
Because I can't hold on when I'm stretched so thin
I make the right moves but I'm lost within
I put on my daily facade but then
I just end up getting hurt again
By myself [myself]

[x2]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I canít rely on myself

[Chorus:]
I canít hold on
To what I want when Iím stretched so thin
Itís all too much to take in
I canít hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in

If I
Turn my back Iím defenseless
And to go blindly seems senseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on then theyíll
Take from me Ďtill everything is gone
If I let them go Iíll be outdone
But if I try to catch them Iíll be outrun
If Iím killed by the questions like a cancer
Then Iíll be buried in the silence of the answer
by myself [myself]

[x2]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I canít rely on myself

[Chorus]

How do you think Iíve lost so much
I'm so afraid that I'm out of touch
How do you expect... I will know what to do
When all I know
Is what You tell me to

[x2]
Donít you know
I canít tell you how to make it go
No matter what I do, how hard I try
I canít seem to convince myself why
Iím stuck on the outside

[Chorus x2]

Primus "Mr. Knowitall"


They call me Mr. Knowitall
I will not compromise.
I will not be told what to do.
I shall not step aside.
They call me Mr. Knowitall
I have no time to waste.
My mouth it spews pure intellect.
And I've such elegant taste.
They call me Mr. Knowitall.
I sup the aged wine.
Oh I could tell such wonderous tales
if I should find the time.
Well, I must be Mr. Knowitall
For ideas they come in bounds.
I am Mr. Knowitall
So spread the word around.
They call me Mr. Knowitall
I am so eloquent.
Perfection is my middle name
And whatever rhymes with eloquent.

I like those last 2 songs. Thanks MysticMelody & HSC!

A PERFECT CIRCLE
"Sleeping Beauty"

Delusional
I believe I can cure it all for you, dear
Coax or trick or drive or
drag the demons from you
Make it right for you sleeping beauty
Truly thought
I can magically heal you

You're far beyond a visible sign of your awakening
Failing miserably to rescue

Sleeping Beauty

Drunk on ego
Truly thought I could make it right
If I kissed you one more time to
Help you face the nightmare
But you're far too poisoned for me
Such a fool to think that I can wake you from your slumber
That I could actually heal you..

Sleeping Beauty
Poisoned and hopeless
You're far beyond a visible sign of your awakening
Failing miserably to find a way to comfort you

Far beyond a visible sign of your awakening
And hiding from some poisoned memory

Poisoned and hopeless
Sleeping Beauty


------------------
`Who are you?' said the Caterpillar. This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, `I--I hardly know, sir, just at present-- at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.'

Ain't No Stoppin Us Now

Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!
We're on the move!
Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!
We've got the groove!

There's been so many things thats held us down.
But now it looks like things are finally comin' around.
I know we've got, a long long way to go,
and where we'll end up, I don't know.
But we won't let nothin' hold us back,
we're putting our selves together,
we're polishing up our act!
If you felt we've been held down before,
I know you'll refuse to be held down anymore!

Don't you let nothing, nothing,
Stand in your way!
I want ya'll to listen, listen,
to every word I say, every word I say!

Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!
We're on the move!
Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!
We've got the groove!

Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!
We're on the move!
Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!
We've got the groove!

I know you know someone that has a negative vow,
and if you're trying to make it they only push you aside.
They really don't have, no where to go.
Ask them where they're going, they don't know.
But we won't let nothin' hold us back,
we're gonna put our selves together,
we're gonna polish up our act!
And if you've ever been held down before,
I know you'll refuse to be held down anymore!

Don't you let nothing, nothing,
Stand in your way!
I want ya'll to listen, listen,
to every word I say, every word I say!

Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!
We're on the move!
Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!
We've got the groove!

Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!
We're on the move!
Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!
We've got the groove!

Have You Ever Been (To Electric Ladyland)

Have you ever been (have you ever been) to Electric Ladyland?
The magic carpet waits for you so don't you be late
Oh, (I wanna show you) the different emotions
(I wanna run to) the sounds and motions
Electric woman waits for you and me
So it's time we take a ride, we can cast all of your hang-ups over
the seaside
While we fly right over the love filled sea
Look up ahead, I see the loveland, soon you'll understand.

Make love, make love, make love, make love.

The angels will spread their wings, spread their wings
Good and evil lay side by side while electric love penetrates the sky
Lord, Lord I wanna show you
Hmm, hmmm, hmmm
Show you

Earth Blues

Well, I see hands and attesting faces
reachiní up but not quite touching the Promised Land
Well, I taste tears and a whole lot of previous years wasted,
saying ĎLord please give us a helping handí
Lord, thereís got to be some changes
Gonna be a whole lot of re-arranges
You better hope love is the answer
Yeah, it better come before the summer

Well, everybody can hear the sound of freedomís beating heart
Sirens flashing with earth and rockets stoning
You better love me like itís gonna be the
last time and tell the child to bury
Daddyís old clothes
Yeah, theyíre talking about getting together, yeah, together
for love, love, love
You better hope love is the answer, baby I think you better hope it
comes before the summer

Everybody, every Sister, every Mama to feel the light, itís shining bright, baby
Everybody, we got to live together, oh
Right on baby
Feel those Earth Blues coming at you

Donít let your imagination take you by surprise
A Queen and me I, one day, visualise
My head in the cloud, my feet on the pavement
Donít get too stoned, please remember youíre a man
Lord, thereís got to be some changes
Living togetherís gonna be a lot of re-arranges
You better be ready, Lord, my Lord
Just hope love comes before the summer

Everybody, got to feel the light
You gotta feel the light, baby
Everybody, we gotta live together
Keep it together, right on together, oh (yeah)

All standing together for the Earth Blues coming at you baby
Feel those Earth Blues coming at you
Yeah, yeah let me hear it

The Story of Life

The story of Jesus
so easy to explain
After they crucified him,
a woman, she claimed his name
The story of Jesus
the whole bible knows
went all across the desert
and in the middle, he found a rose

There should be no questions
there should be no lies
He was married ever happily after
All the tears we cry
No use in arguing
all the use to the man that moans
When each man falls in battle
his soul it has to roam
Angles of heaven
flying saucers to some,
made Easter Sunday
the name of the rising sun

The story is written
by so many people who dared,
to lay down the truth
to so very many who cared
to carry the cross
of Jesus and beyond
We will guide the light
this time with a woman in our arms
We as men
can't explain the reason why
the woman's always mentioned
at the moment that we die
All we know
is God is by our side,
and he says the word
so easy yet so hard

I wish not to be alone,
so I must respect my other heart
Oh, the story
of Jesus is the story
of you and me
No use in feeling lonely,
I am searching to be free

The story
of life is quicker
than the wink of an eye
The story of love
is hello and goodbye
Until we meet again

These are mine and my husbands songs. So this is dedicated to him in honor of our 41st anniversay on Aug.28 I love you, Sweetie

Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me
Gladys Knight & The Pips


I've had my share of life's ups and downs
But fate's been kind, the downs have been few
I guess you could say that I've been lucky
Well, I guess you could say that it's all because of you

If anyone should ever write my life story
For whatever reason there might be
Ooo, you'll be there between each line of pain and glory
'Cause you're the best thing that ever happened to me
Ah, you're the best thing that ever happened to me

Oh, there have been times when times were hard
But always somehow I made it, I made it through
'Cause for every moment that I've spent hurting
There was a moment that I spent, ah, just loving you

If anyone should ever write my life story
For whatever reason there might be
Oh, you'll be there between each line of pain and glory
'Cause you're the best thing that ever happened to me
Oh, you're the best thing that ever happened to me
I know, you're the best thing, oh, that ever happened to me

In My Life
The Beatles

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends
I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
there is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more

You Put Your Arms Around Me

I have a love that lives in me
He makes me sleep in perfect peace
He loves me strong and gently
He doesn't try to change me
No he'd never ever treat me bad
No he'd never call me names
He erases every memory of pain

You put your arms around me
Oh since the day you found me
I've been...I've been free

I love the life you've given me
We are each other's family
And I'd never ever treat you bad
And I'd never call you names
I will erase every memory of shame

You wrap yourself around me
Oh since the day you found me
I've been...I've been me

You put your arms around me
Oh since the day you found me
I've been...I've been free

You wrapped yourself around me
Oh since the day you found me
I've been...I've been me

Big Bunch of Junkie Lies

Big bunch of junkie lies
That's what you told
it was televised
How can you say that I told you
To obey me, now, that ain't true

That's bullsh*t
And you know why I did what I did to you
You were killing my best friend
With cocaine and heroin

The son of your good friend
Is lying dead in your apartment
How many is that now
Oh will you be next on a hotel floor?

Big bunch of junkie lies
You tell yourself and your little vampires
You sucked the life of my true friend
Did what I did to make her live again

And I'd never apologize
You stole the life out of my friend's eyes
With bullsh*t and junkie lies
What will it take for you to realize
She left and she ain't coming home
She only needs you cause she hates being alone
She can't tell who is a good or bad man
Cause her daddy was a f*cked-up one...

Big bunch of junkie lies
That's what he said and loooked her in her eyes
Big bunch of junkie lies
Is all he left her when he said goodbye

Now the angels have her in their arms
And herion will never steal her charms
And you can stomp baby feet and cry
She don't believe your junkie lies

Big bunch of junkie lies
That's what you told
it was televised
Big bunch of junkie lies
