Beautiful World: by Colin Hay

My my my itís a beautiful world
I like swimming in the sea
I like to go out beyond the white breakers
Where a man can still be free (or a woman if you are one)
I like swimming in the sea.

My my my itís a beautiful world
I like drinking Irish tea
With a little bit of lapsang souchong
I like making my own tea.

My my my itís a beautiful world
I like driving in my car
Roll the top down sometimes I travel quite far
Drive to the ocean stare up at the stars
I like driving in my car

All around is anger automatic guns
Itís death in large numbers no respect for women or our little ones
I tried talking to Jesus but He just put me on hold
Said Heíd been swamped by calls this week
And He couldnít shake His cold

And still this emptiness persists
Perhaps this is as good as it gets
When youíve given up the drink and those nasty cigarettes
Now I leave the party early at least with no regrets
I watch the sun as it comes up I watch it as it sets
Yeah this is as good as it gets.

My my my itís a beautiful world
I like sleeping with Marie
She is one sexy girl full of mystery
She says she doesnít love me but she likes my company
For now thatís good enough for me

You have to hear it to REALLY get it, the song is awash with strings and dreamy/intense.

Will Young Fine Line lyrics

You're walking a fine line
You're walking a fine line
You're living on borrowed time
You're walking a fine line
Don't pretend you don't see
What's in front of your eyes
We're scraping the gutter
Or we're touching the skies
There's times when I feel
I'm in the eye of a storm
But there's times when I feel
That we could fly up to the moon
To the moon
You're walking a fine line
You're walking a fine fine line
You're living on borrowed time
You're walking a fine line
I know you agree that
We should try to work it out
It's too good to throw away
I never had a doubt
We're so good together
And there's nothing to prove
Seems we gotta learn
To take the rough times with the smooth
With the smooth
You're walking a fine line
You're walking a fine fine line
You're living on borrowed time
You're walking a fine line
You're walking a fine line
You're living on borrowed time
You're walking a fine line

On a Day like Today- Bryan Adams

Free is all you gotta be
Dream dreams no one else can see
Sometimes ya wanna run away
But ya never know what might be comin round your way ya
Ya ya

On a day like today
The whole world could change
The suns gonna shine
Shine thru the rain
On a day like today
Ya never wanna see the sun go down
Ya never wanna see the sun go down

Somewhere - theres a place for you
I know that you believe it too
Sometimes if you wanna get away
All ya gotta know is what we got is here to stay
All the way

On a day like today - the whole world could change
The suns gonna shine - shine thru the rain
On a day like today - no one complains
Free to be pure - free to be sane
On a day like today
Ya never wanna see the sun go down
Ya never wanna see the sun go down

Free is all we gotta be
Dream dreams no one else can see
But ya never know what might be comin for you and me ya
Its gonna be

On a day like today...

U2- With or Without You

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 Im waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I cant 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, shes 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

With or without you
With or without you
I cant live
With or without you

With or without you
With or without you
I cant live
With or without you
With or without you

Losing My Religion- REM

Life is bigger
Its bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no Ive said too much
I set it up

Thats me in the corner
Thats me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I dont know if I can do it
Oh no Ive said too much
I havent said enough
I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

Every whisper
Of every waking hour im
Choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt lost and blinded fool
Oh no Ive said too much
I set it up

Consider this
The hint of the century
Consider this
The slip that brought me
To my knees failed
What if all these fantasies
Come flailing around
Now Ive said too much
I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
That was just a dream

There are things in life you'll learn and
In time you'll see
Cause out there somewhere
It's all waiting
If you keep believing
So don't run, don't hide
It will be all right
You'll see, trust me
I'll be there watching over you

Just take a look through my eyes
There's a better place
somewhere out there
Just take a look through my eyes
Everything changes
You'll be amazed what you'll find
If you look through my eyes

There will be times on this journey
All you'll see is darkness
Out there somewhere daylight finds you
If you keep believing

So don't run, don't hide
It will be all right
You'll see, trust me
I'll be there watching over you

Just take a look through my eyes
There's a better place
somewhere out there
Just take a look through my eyes
Everything changes
You'll be amazed what you'll find
If you look through my eyes

All the things that you can change
There's a meaning in everything
And you will find all you need
There's so much to understand

Just take a look through my eyes
There's a better place
somewhere out there
Just take a look through my eyes
Everything changes
You'll be amazed what you'll find
If you look through my eyes

Take a look through my eyes

Sometimes in our lives,
we all have pain, we all have sorrow
But if are wise,
we know that there's always tomorrow.

Lean on me, when you're not strong,
And I'll be your friend, I'll help you carry on,
For it won't be long,
till I'm gonna need somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride,
if I have faith you need to borrow,
For no one can fill those of your needs
that you won't let show

You just call on me brother when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend, I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long,
till I'm gonna need somebody to lean on

You just call on me brother when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

If there is a load,
you have to bear, that you can't carry,
I'm right up the road, I'll share your load,
if you just call me
Call me, if you need a friend, call me...

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There's always one reason
To feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh beautiful release
Memory seeps from my veins
Let me be empty
And weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
There's vultures and thieves at your back
And the storm keeps on twisting
You keep on building the lie
That you make up for all that you lack
It don't make no difference
Escaping one last time

It's easier to believe

in this sweet madness
oh
This glorious sadness

that brings me to my knees

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

Was listening to Gord today on my commute homeÖ.. When this first song came out, I would nearly burst into tears every time I heard it (dang Pisces Moon!!!)Ö.. My 10yo son saw a documentary on Discovery Channelís Shipwrecks show so I played the tune for him and now he requests it all the time, so the tear ducts have had a chance to dry up due to overexposure

Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
Gordon Lightfoot

The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
Of the big lake they called 'Gitche Gumee'
The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead
When the skies of November turn gloomy
With a load of iron ore twenty-six thousand tons more
Than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty.
That good ship and crew was a bone to be chewed
When the gales of November came early.

The ship was the pride of the American side
Coming back from some mill in Wisconsin
As the big freighters go, it was bigger than most
With a crew and good captain well seasoned
Concluding some terms with a couple of steel firms
When they left fully loaded for Cleveland
And later that night when the ship's bell rang
Could it be the north wind they'd been feelin'?

The wind in the wires made a tattle-tale sound
As a wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the captain did too,
T'was the witch of November come stealin'.
The dawn came late and the breakfast had to wait
When the Gales of November came slashin'.
When afternoon came it was freezin' rain
In the face of a hurricane west wind.

When suppertime came, the old cook came on deck sayin'
Fellas, it's too rough to feed ya.
At Seven P.M. a main hatchway caved in, he said
Fellas, it's been good t'know ya.
The captain wired in he had water comin' in
And the good ship and crew was in peril.
And later that night when his lights went outta sight
Came the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

Does any one know where the love of God goes
When the waves turn the minutes to hours?
The searchers all say they'd have made Whitefish Bay
If they'd put fifteen more miles behind her.
They might have split up or they might have capsized
They may have broke deep and took water.
And all that remains is the faces and the names
Of the wives and the sons and the daughters.

Lake Huron rolls, Superior sings
In the rooms of her ice-water mansion.
Old Michigan steams like a young man's dreams
The islands and bays are for sportsmen.
And farther below, Lake Ontario
Takes in what Lake Erie can send her.
And the iron boats go, as the mariners all know,
With the Gales of November remembered.

In a musty old hall in Detroit they prayed,
In the Maritime Sailors' Cathedral.
The church bell chimed till it rang twenty-nine times
For each man on the Edmund Fitzgerald.
The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
Of the big lake they call 'Gitche Gumee'.
Superior, they said, never gives up her dead
When the gales of November come early.

Never Too Close
Gordon Lightfoot

I remember when best friends were jealous lovers
Lyin' warm asleep beneath the covers
Dreaming of belonging to each other
And so we tried, never too close
Never too near, dyin' in time
And so we cried but that is alright
We meant no one no harm

I remember when best friends were not mistaken
Long before that freedom was forsaken
Learnin' 'bout all the good things
In the world worth believin'
And so we tried, never too close
Never too near, dyin' in time
And so we cried but that is alright
We meant no one no harm

I remember when jealous lovers would stick together
When the days were warm and the nights more tender
When the bonds of truth were not made to measure
And so we tried, never too close
Never too near, dyin' in time
And so we cried but that is alright
We meant no one no harm

Try, try as you will
Following dreams never fulfilled
And so we cried but that is alright
We meant no one no harm

Iím Not Supposed to Care
Gordon Lightfoot

I think you have somebody waiting outside in the rain to take you away
You got places to go, you got people to see still I'm gonna miss you
but anyway
I wish you good spaces in the far away places you go
If it rains or it snows may you be safe and warm and never grow old
And if you need someone who loves you, you know I will always be there
I'll do it although I'm not supposed to care

I'll give you the keys to my flying machine if you'd like
I will show you the light and when you call I'm gonna come to you
And when you find someone who loves you, I'll know you would treat me the same
Just lie there, you're not supposed to care

I think you have somebody waiting outside in the rain to take you away.
That's some kind of a game still I'm glad it came down to the final round
but anyway

If you think you need someone who needs you, you know I will always be there
I'll do it although I'm not supposed to care
I'll do it although I'm not supposed to care

The List
Gordon Lightfoot

There's a little room on my list for tonight
Will ya be the one to fill it in?
Toss around what is up, what is down
In between, would ya like to dream
Step on in, ya don't have to play to win
But then you might

There's a little song on my list for tonight
Would ya like to try and make it rhyme?
Sing and sway, if your heart feel that way
We can leave the blues behind

There's a little lovin' on my list tonight
With a bit of luck, I'll check it off
Toss around what is up, what is down
In between, d' ya know what I mean

Rain, rain all day long
You've made it pay, you can do no wrong tonight
Pick and grin, ya don't have to play to win
But then you might
Thick and thin, ya don't have to play to win
But then you might

There's a little room on my list for tonight
Will ya be the one to fill it in?
Toss around what is up, what is down
In between, would ya like to dream
Step on in, ya don't have to play to win
But then you might
Thick and thin, ya don't have to play to win
But then you might

Protocol
Gordon Lightfoot

Who are these ones who would lead us now
To the sound of a thousand guns
Who'd storm the gates of hell itself
To the tune of a single drum
Where are the girls of the neighborhood bars
Whose loves were lost at sea
In the hills of France and on German soil
From Saigon to Wounded Knee
Who come from long lines of soldiers
Whose duty was fulfilled
In the words of a warriors will and protocol
Where are the boys in their coats of blue
Who flew when their eyes were blind
Was God in town for the Roman games
Was he there when the deals were signed
Who are the kings in their coats of mail
Who rode by the cross to die
Did they all go down into worthiness
Is it wrong for a king to cry
And who are these ones who would have us now
Whose presence in concealed
Whose nature is revealed in a time bomb
Last of all you old seadogs
Who travel after whale
You'd storm the gates of hell itself
For the taste of a mermaid's tail
Who come from long lines of skippers
Whose duty was fulfilled
In the words of a warrior's will and protocol

This song makes me think of the San Juan Islands that I loved as a childÖ..

Seven Island Suite
Gordon Lightfoot

Seven islands to the high side of the bay, across the bay
to the sunset through the blue light of a fiery autumn haze.
We went walking on the high side of the bay on a chilly morn
and we saw how leaves had fallen on the beds where trees were born.
Any man in his right mind could not fail to be made aware,
any woman with a gift of wisdom would not seek her answers there.

Seven islands to the high side of the bay if you're looking west
to the sunset you can see it, all in fiery autumn dress.
Anytime would be the right time to come up to your bed of boughs.
anybody with a wish to wander could not fail but to be aroused.

Living high in the city, guess you think it's a pretty good way.
You get to learn but when you get burned you got nothing to say.
You seem to think because you got chicken to go you're in luck.
Fortune will not find you in your mansion or your truck.
Brothers will desert you when you're down and sh~t out of luck.
Look around at the morning, guess you're doing the best you can.
Surely you know that when you go, nobody gives you a hand.
Think of the air you're breathing in, think of the time you waste.
Think of the right and wrong and consider the frown on your face.

It's time you tried living on the high side of the bay, you need a rest.
Any woman or a man with a wish to fade away could be so blessed.
Fortune will not find you in your mansion turned to gold,
brothers will desert you when your nights turn long and cold.

If you feel it you better believe it, you're gonna see it, so you really know,
it is rising like a feather, dipping and dancing from below.
There's a new wave that is breaking in the wake of a passing ship.
Every nation's gonna be shaken, put it together, don't let it slip.
It's time you tried living on the high side of the bay, you need a rest.
Any man or a woman with a wish to fade away could be so blessed.
Seven islands to the high side of the bay, across the bay
to the sunset through the blue light of a fiery autumn haze,
to the sunset through the blue light of a fiery autumn haze.

Nirvana "Pen Cap Chew"

Here we rise again*
Here we lie*
Hear our lies again*
Hear a lot*

You give, you give, you give, you get to me
Holy is the tide*, its such an easy way to go
You give, you give, you give, you get to me
Only circling the spirit of a maidenhead*

Here we rise again*
Here we lie*
Hear our lies again*
Hear a lot*

You're lonely!

Waste your time by saving one more skull and bones*
Kill a politician and then wear his clothes
This decade is the age of rehashing
Protest and then go to jail for trespassing

Here we rise again*
Here we lie*
Hear our lies again*
Hear a lot*


((the true lyrics to this song are not public record,
but i have interpreted them as best I could.
The asterisks signify lines I probably invented myself, lol.))

Anne Lennox "Cold"

Come to me
Do and be done with me
(cold cold cold)
Dont I exist for you
Dont I still live for you
(cold cold cold)
Everything I possess
Given with tenderness
Wrapped in a ribbon of glass
Time it may take us but God only knows
How Ive paid for those things in the past

Dying is easy its living that scares me to death
I could be so content hearing the sound of your breath
Cold is the color of crystal the snowlight
That falls from the heavenly skies
Catch me and let me dive under under
For I want to swim in the pools of your eyes

I want to be with you baby
Slip me inside of your heart
Dont I belong to you baby
Dont you know that nothing can tear us apart
Come on now come on now come on now
Telling you that
I loved you right from the start...
But the more I want you the less I get
Aint that just the way things are...

Winter has frozen us
Let love take hold of us
(cold cold cold)
Now we are shivering
Blue ice is glittering
(cold cold cold)

Cold is the colour of crystal the snowlight
That falls from the heavenly skies
Catch me and let me dive under
For I want to swim in the pools of your eyes

John Lennon "Instant Karma"

Instant Karma's gonna get you,
Gonna knock you right on the head,
You better get yourself together,
Pretty soon you're gonna be dead,
What in the world you thinking of,
Laughing in the face of love,
What on earth you tryin' to do,
It's up to you, yeah you.

Instant Karma's gonna get you,
Gonna look you right in the face,
Better get yourself together darlin',
Join the human race,
How in the world you gonna see,
Laughin' at fools like me,
Who on earth d'you think you are,
A super star,
Well, right you are.

Well we all shine on,
Like the moon and the stars and the sun,
Well we all shine on,
Ev'ryone come on.

Instant Karma's gonna get you,
Gonna knock you off your feet,
Better recognize your brothers,
Ev'ryone you meet,
Why in the world are we here,
Surely not to live in pain and fear,
Why on earth are you there,
When you're ev'rywhere,
Come and get your share.

Well we all shine on,
Like the moon and the stars and the sun,
Yeah we all shine on,
Come on and on and on on on,
Yeah yeah, alright, uh huh, ah-.

Well we all shine on,
Like the moon and the stars and the sun,
Yeah we all shine on,
On and on and on on and on.

Well we all shine on,
Like the moon and the stars and the sun.
Well we all shine on,
Like the moon and the stars and the sun.
Well we all shine on,
Like the moon and the stars and the sun.
Yeah we all shine on,
Like the moon and the stars and the sun.


Everytime I hear this song I feel like I can conquer anything!

Sweet Harmony
The Beloved

is it right or wrong
try to find a place
we can all belong
be as one
try to get on by
if we unify
we should really try

all this time
spinning round and round
made the same mistakes
that weíve always found
surely now
we could move along
make a better world
no, it canít be wrong

letís come together
right now
oh yeah
in sweet harmony

time is running out
let there be no doubt
we should sort things out
if we care
like we say we do
not just empty words
for a week or two

make the world
your priority
try to live your life
ecologically
play a part
in a greater scheme
try to live the dream
on a wider scene

letís come together
right now
oh yeah
in sweet harmony

Link to the song on Radio Blog Club

Can't Take It In
Imogen Heap

Can't close my eyes
They're wide awake
Every hair on my body
Has got a thing for this place
Oh, empty my heart
I've got to make room for this feeling
It's so much bigger than me

[Chorus:]
It couldn't be anymore beautiful
I can't take it in

Weightless in love...unraveling
For all that's to come
And all that's ever been
We're back to the board
With every shade under the sun
Let's make it a good one

[Chorus:]
It couldn't be anymore beautiful
It couldn't be anymore beautiful
I can't take it in

Laaaaaaaa ohhhhhhh
I can't take it in

Laaaaaaaaa ohhhhhh
I can't take it in
Woahhhhhhh

It couldn't be anymore beautiful
It couldn't be anymore beautiful
I can't take it in

More that I wonder
More than I ever needed
Woahhhhhh
More that I wonder

Oooooohhhhhh

These are from American Beauty. I love that movie. I like to watch things dance in the air as well...

Elliot Smith - Because Lyrics


Ah, because the world is round
it turns me on
Because the world is round

Ah, because the wind is high
it blows my mind
Because the wind is high

Ah, love is old, love is new
Love is all, love is you

Because the sky is blue
it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue

Ah, ah, ah, ah

An oldie, also on the soundtrack for American Beauty

Bobby Darin - Don't Rain on My Parade Lyrics

Don't tell me not to fly
I've simply got to
If someone takes a spill
It's me and not you
Don't bring around the cloud to rain on my parade

Don't tell me not to leave
Just sit and putter
Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter
Who told you you're allowed to rain on my parade

I'll march my band out
I'll beat my drum
And if I'm fanned out
Your turn at bat, sir
At least I didn't fake it, hat, sir
I guess I didn't make it

But whether I'm the rose of sheer perfection
A freckle on the nose of life's complexion
A Cinderella or a shine apple of an eye
I gotta fly once
I gotta try once
Only can die once, right, sir?
Ooh, life is juicy
Juicy and you see
I gotta have my bite, sir

Get ready for me love
'Cause I'm a "comer"
I simply gotta march
My heart's a drummer
Don't bring around the cloud to rain on my parade

Yes, sir
No, sir
I'm gonna live and live now
Get what I want, I know how
All that the law will allow
One roll for the whole shebang
One throw that bell will go clang
Though I'm alone I'm a gang
Eye on the target and wham
One shot, one gun shot and bam

Hey, world, here I am...
Get ready for me life, 'cause I'm a "comer"
I simply gotta march, my heart's a drummer
Nobody, no, nobody, is gonna rain on my parade!

Don't know if this has been added yet.
But it gets me every tiime I hear it.

Secret Garden by Bruce Springsteen:

    She'll let you in her house
    If you come knockin' late at night
    She'll let you in her mouth if the
    Words you say are right

    If you pay the price
    She'll let you deep inside
    But there's a secret garden she hides

    She'll let you in her car
    To go drivin' round
    She'll let you into the parts of herself
    That'll bring you down

    She'll let you in her heart
    If you got a hammer and a vise
    But into her secret garden, don't think twice

    You've gone a million miles
    How far'd you get to that place where
    You can't remember and you can't forget

    She'll lead you down a path
    There'll be tenderness in the air
    She'll let you come just far enough
    So you know she's really there
    She'll look at you and smile
    And her eyes will say
    She's got a secret garden
    Where everything you want
    Where everything you need
    Will always stay a million miles away

That song says so much, and I wonder how he knew. And if it really means what I think.

Euphoria by Delerium

And how I have loved
And I have served
And I have sinned
But I have learnt
As long as you are true to the life
That you live
This is the time to feel love
I feel a stirring deep within
Slowly picking up momentum
Like the tide coming in to shore
Over and under in its course
This feeling emblazed inside
Every nerve like a firefly
Hovering above me
Glowing, Glow, Glowing
Glowing divine
Every nerve like a firefly
This feeling emblazed inside
Every nerve like a firefly
I never want to lose what I finally found
There's a requiem
A new congregation
And it's telling me go forward and walk
Under a brighter sky
Every nerve glowing like a firefly
Glowing divine
Every nerve like a firefly
Glow

Wuz listening to mí man Van this afternoonÖ..

Wavelength
Van Morrison

This is a song about your wavelength
And my wavelength, baby
You turn me on
When you get me on your wavelength
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
With your wavelength
Oh, with your wavelength
With your wavelength
With your wavelength
Oh mama, oh mama, oh mama, oh mama oh mama, oh mama

Wavelength
Wavelength
You never let me down...no
You never let me down...no

When I'm down you always comfort me
When I'm lonely you see about me
You are ev'ry where you're 'sposed to be
And I can get your station
When I need rejuvenation

Wavelength
Wavelength
You never let me down...no
You never let me down...no

I heard the voice of America
Callin' on my wavelength
Tellin' me to tune in on my radio
I heard the voice of America
Callin' on my wavelength
Singin' "Come back, baby
Come back
Come back, baby
Come back"

Do do do dou-dit do do dou dit do do do do do
Do do do dou dit do do dou dit do do do do do

Won't you play that song again for me
About my lover, my lover in the grass, yeah, alright
You have told me 'bout my destiny
Singin' "Come back, baby
Come back
Come back, baby
Come back"

On my wavelength
Wavelength
You never let me down...no
You never let me down...no
When you get me on
When you get me on your wavelength
When you get me
Oh, yeah, Lord
You get me on your wavelength

You got yourself a boy
When you get me on
Get me on your wavelength
Ya radio, ya radio, ya radio
Ya radio, ya radio, ya radio

Into the Mystic
Van Morrison

We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won as we sailed into the mystic
Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic

And when that fog horn blows I will be coming home
And when the fog horn blows I want to hear it
I don't have to fear it

And I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And magnificently we will flow into the mystic

When that fog horn blows you know I will be coming home
And when that fog horn whistle blows I got to hear it
I don't have to fear it

And I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And together we will flow into the mystic
Come on girl...

In Your Eyes

Peter Gabriel


love I get so lost, sometimes
days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
when I want to run away
I drive off in my car
but whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
the heat I see in your eyes

love, I don't like to see so much pain
so much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

and all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
the heat I see in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes

Hi Lia!!!! I've missed seeing you, but I haven't been around here much lately..... may I add the music (link below) to one of my all-time favorite songs above??

I've always loved the line --
"In your eyes I see the doorway to a thousand churches....."

May I add the intro from the live version??

Accepting all I've done and said
I want to stand and stare again
'Til there's nothing left, oh
That remains there in your eyes
Whatever comes and goes
I will hear your silent call
And I will touch that tender wall
'Til I know I'm home again, oh

In Your Eyes

Lia,
I love that one.

"Drown" Smashing Pumpkins

No matter where you are
I can still hear you when you drown
You've traveled very far
Just to see if I'll come around
When I'm down

All of those yesterdays
Coming around

No matter where you are
I can still hear you when you dream
You traveled very far
You traveled far, like a star
And you are

All of those yesterdays
Coming around

Is it something someone said?
Was it something someone said?

Yesterday the sky was blue
And I still feel the same
Nothing left for me to do
And I still feel the same

I wish, I wish I could fly
I wish, I wish I could lie
I will, I will try
I will, I will
Goodbye

The music in this song is great,
the lyrics are okay too.

Smashing Pumpkins
"Whir"

I've wasted all my years
Been chasin' all my fears
For another
Brighter than you

I gave in long ago
To make it to the show
It's not easy
When you're alone

All your prayers
In my ears
Don't you care

Whir yourself around
Just to fall back down
Whir yourself around

My honey, little girl
C'mon let's go for a whirl
It's still early
Sun is sleeping

She says she wants to marry me
She says she wants a baby
It's not easy
When you're scared

Whir yourself around
Just to fall back down
Whir yourself around

All your prayers
In my ears
Don't you care
