Bob Dylan's Dream, by Bob Dylan, from my favourite, The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan

The lyrics and meaning to this song are incredible. Time well spent, but time never to be returned to.

While riding on a train goin' west,
I fell asleep for to take my rest.
I dreamed a dream that made me sad,
Concerning myself and the first few friends I had.

With half-damp eyes I stared to the room
Where my friends and I spent many an afternoon,
Where we together weathered many a storm,
Laughin' and singin' till the early hours of the morn.

By the old wooden stove where our hats was hung,
Our words were told, our songs were sung,
Where we longed for nothin' and were quite satisfied
Talkin' and a-jokin' about the world outside.

With haunted hearts through the heat and cold,
We never thought we could ever get old.
We thought we could sit forever in fun
But our chances really was a million to one.

As easy it was to tell black from white,
It was all that easy to tell wrong from right.
And our choices were few and the thought never hit
That the one road we traveled would ever shatter and split.

How many a year has passed and gone,
And many a gamble has been lost and won,
And many a road taken by many a friend,
And each one I've never seen again.

I wish, I wish, I wish in vain,
That we could sit simply in that room again.
Ten thousand dollars at the drop of a hat,
I'd give it all gladly if our lives could be like that.

Jugaband Blues
Pink Floyd

It's awfully considerate of you to think of me here
And I'm most obliged to you for making it clear
That I'm not here.
And I never knew the moon could be so big
And I never knew the moon could be so blue
And I'm grateful that you threw away my old shoes
And brought me here instead dressed in red
And I'm wondering who could be writing this song.

I don't care if the sun don't shine
And I don't care if nothing is mine
And I don't care if I'm nervous with you
I'll do my loving in the winter.

And the sea isn't green
And I love the queen
And what exactly is a dream?
And what exactly is a joke?

-A really wonderful song. colgate

This song for the past month has been my anthem. It gives heart in the face of opposition.

Better Days, by Bruce Springsteen, off of his Greatest Hits(literally, he released this for his Greatest Hits)


Well my soul checked out missing as I sat listening
To the hours and minutes tickin' away
Yeah, just sittin' around waitin' for my life to begin
While it was all just slippin' away.
I'm tired of waitin' for tomorrow to come
Or that train to come roarin' 'round the bend
I got a new suit of clothes a pretty red rose
And a woman I can call my friend

These are better days baby
Yeah there's better days shining through
These are better days baby
Better days with a girl like you

Well I took a piss at fortune's sweet kiss
It's like eatin' caviar and dirt
It's a sad funny ending to find yourself pretending
A rich man in a poor man's shirt
Now my *** was draggin' when from a passin' gypsy wagon
Your heart like a diamond shone
Tonight I'm layin' in your arms carvin' lucky charms
Out of these heard luck bones

These are better days baby
These are better days it's true
These are better days
There's better days shining through

Now a life of leisure and a pirate's treasure
Don't make much for tragedy
But it's a sad man my friend who's livin' in his own skin
And can't stand the company
Every fool's got a reason to feelin' sorry for himself
And turn his heart to stone
Tonight this fool's halfway to heaven and just a mile outta hell
And I feel like I'm comin' home

These are better days baby
There's better days shining through
These are better days
Better days with a girl like you

These are better days baby
These are better days it's true
These are better days
Better days are shining through

Mika : happy ending (oft played i know , but i like it )
This is the way you left me.
I'm not pretending.
No hope, no love, no glory,
No happy ending.
This is the way that we love,
Like its forever.
Then live the rest of our life,
But not together.

Wake up in the morning,
Stumble on my life.
Can't get no love without sacrifice.
If anything should happen,
I guess I wish you well.
Mmh A little bit of heaven,
But a little bit of hell.

This is the hardest story that I've ever told.
No hope, or love, or glory.
A happy endings gone forever more.
I feel as if I'm wasted,
And I'm wasted everyday.

This is the way you left me.
I'm not pretending.
No hope, no love, no glory,
No happy ending.
This is the way that we love,
Like its forever.
Then live the rest of our life,
But not together.

Two o'clock in the morning,
Something's on my mind.
Can't get no rest,
Keep walking around.
If I pretend that nothing ever went wrong
I can get to my sleep
I can think that we just carried on.

This is the hardest story that I've ever told.
No hope, or love, or glory.
A happy endings gone forever more.
I feel as if I'm wasted,
And I'm wasted everyday.


This is the way you left me, (Oh I feel as if I'm wasted)
I'm not pretending.
No hope, no love, no glory,
No happy ending.
This is the way that we love, (And I'm wasted everyday)
Like its forever.
Then live the rest of our life,
But not together.

Little bit of love
Little bit of love
Little bit of love (I feel as if I'm wasted)
Little bit of love
Little bit of love (And I'm wasted everyday)
Little bit of love
(Little bit of love .. continues repeating)

This is the way you left me.
I'm not pretending.
No hope, no love, no glory,
No happy ending.
This is the way that we love,
Like its forever.
Then live the rest of our life,
But not together.


This is the way you left me.
I'm not pretending.
No hope, no love, no glory,
No happy ending...

I randomly thought i should post my current favorite song (it offten changes alot yes

Cobra Starship - One Day, Robots Will Cry

This won't hurt more than a pinch.
so just pour a drink.
lets talk it over.
i'm back after all these years.
don't be affraid my dear.
now i'm older.

cause people change.
can't you see my eyes.
are they not the same after the lies?
i know i'm like a machine.
but i still have dreams.
i know one day we will...

sleep for days.
come over, come over.
i won't make the same mistakes.
come over, come over.
i'm dying not to hurt you.
in our dreams, we can be complete again.

when you were young, you kept a list.
of the things you'd miss, as you got older.
i've known you, in every life i've lived.
yeah, i'm still a kid.
even though i'm colder.

when you were a child.
i was lost in the wild, but you built a home for me in the road.
i was born the cold.
turn up the heat.
i know one day we will...

sleep for days.
come over, come over.
i won't make the same mistakes.
come over, come over.
i'm dying not to hurt you.
in our dreams, we can be complete.
if we go to sleep, we can wake up home again.

come on over again.

sleep for days.
come over, come over.
i won't make the same mistakes.
come over, come over.
i'm dying not to hurt you.

sleep for days.
come over, come over.
i won't make the same mistakes.
come over, come over.
i'm dying not to hurt you.

in our dreams we can be complete.
if we go to sleep, we can wake up home again.

come over, come over.
come over, come over

The pineapple song

(Chorus)
Ya Boom - Pine...apple wine - ya dollar fifty all da time
Ya Boom - Pine...apple wine - ya dollar fifty all da time
Turn 'round and let me see ya
Turn 'round and let me see ya
Ya Boom - Pine...apple wine - ya dollar fifty all da time

I got a new dance
Hot like pepper-pot
From the old to the young
Gonna make your body rock

It's really easy - easy peazy
You can do it anywhere
Jump around like you don't care - singin'
(Chorus)

A young man broke his leg
Old granny broke her back
And Jimmy got a migrane from a falling coconut
The doctor was confused
He has a solution - a bottle of the apple wine was his prescription

It cured da broke leg
It cured da bad back
It cured da migrane - even cured da heart attack

The people started jumping
'Cause they were fellin' fine
The city's greatest sin was the boom-pine-wine
(Chorus)
nuu ebil

Of course...you would find a song about pineapples...hahaha.

Perfect Day, from the very ridiculous album Transformer, by Lou Reed

Just a perfect day
drink Sangria in the park
And then later
when it gets dark, we go home

Just a perfect day
feed animals in the zoo
Then later
a movie, too, and then home

Oh, it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spend it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

Just a perfect day
problems all left alone
Weekenders on our own
it's such fun

Just a perfect day
you made me forget myself
I thought I was
someone else, someone good

Oh, it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow

If I Were Gay-Stephen Lynch

Here we are
Dear old friends
You and i drunk again
laughs have been had
tears have been shed
maybe the whisky has gone to my head
but if i were gay
i would give you my heart
and if i were gay
you'd be my work of art
and if i were gay
we would swim in romance
but im not gay
so get your hand out of my pants

its not that i dont care
i do
i just dont see myself in you
another time another scene
i'd be right behind you if you know what i mean
coz if i were gay
i would give soul
and if i were gay
i would give you my whole... being
and if i were gay
we would tear down the walls
But I'm Not gay
so wont you stop cupping my Ba... Hand
we've never hugged
we've never kissed
i've never been intimate with your fist
you have opened brand new doors
get over here and drop ... your ... Drawers

Alone - Sanctus Real

True love exists yes I know this
My heart was waiting for you
And when we met I felt my chest
pound fast, racing for the chance
to know you, to hold you
To open up and show you
The way it feels when you know...

You are not alone
Know that I would fight the tides to
Be together
When you feel alone
Listen to this song to make your heart
feel better

Two hearts entwined, yes, you are mine
And I'll be your's forever
I've done the math, I'm less than half
We're better off together
And I want you here by my side
As much as you are on my mind
When I'm gona you should no

Rainy Mondays feel like Fridays
When you're smiling at me I can feel
The space
Between us collapsing
Our love is everlasting

care for me, care for me,
you said you'd care for me
there for me, there for me
said you'd be there for me
cry for me, cry for me
you said you'd die for me
give to me, give to me
why won't you live for me

I came across these brilliant lyrics draait

Queensryche
Silent Lucidity

Hush now dont cry
Wipe away the teardrop from your eye
Youre lying safe in bed
It was all a bad dream
Spinning in your head
Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
Of someone close to you leaving the game of life
So here it is, another chance
Wide awake you face the day
Your dream is over...or has it just begun?

Theres a place I like to hide
A doorway that I run to in the night
Relax child, you were there
But only didnt realize it and you were scared
Its a place where you will learn
To face your fears, retrace the tears
And ride the whims of your mind
Commanding in another world
Suddenly, you hear and see
This magic new dimension

I-will be watching over you
I-am gonna help you see it through
I-will protect you in the night
I-am smiling next to you...in silent lucidity

If you open your mind for me
You wont rely on open eyes to see
The walls you built within
Come tumblng down, and a new world will begin
Living twice at once you learn
You7re safe froom pain in the dream domain
A soul set free to fly
A round trip journey in your head
Master of illusion, can you realize
Your dreams alive, you can be the guide but...

I-will be watching over you
I-am gonna help you see it through
I-will protect you in the night
I-am smiling next to you...in silent lucidity

Fly me to the Moon by Frank Sinatra

Fly me to the moon
Let me sing among those stars
Let me see what spring is like
On jupiter and mars

In other words, hold my hand
In other words, baby kiss me

Fill my heart with song
Let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you

BJÍRK: EARTH INTRUDERS

-------------------
we are the earth intruders
we are the earth intruders
muddy with twigs and branches

turmoil! carnage!

here come the earth intruders
we are the paratroopers
stampede of sharpshooters
come straight from voodoo

with our feet thumping
with our feet marching
grinding skeptics into the soil

shower of goodness
coming to end the doubt pouring over
shower of goodness coming to end

we are the earth intruders
we are the sharp shooters
flock of parashooters
necessary voodoo

I have guided my bones
through some voltage
and loved them still
and loved them too

metallic carnage!
feriocity!
feel the speed!

we are the earth intruders
we are the sharp shooters
flock of parashooters
necessary voodoo

there is turmoil out there
carnage! rambling!
what is to do but dig
dig bones out of earth

mudgraves! timber!
morbid trenches!

here come the earth intruders
stampede of resistance
we are the canoneers
necessary voodoo

and the beast
with many heads
and arms rolling
steamroller!

we are the earth intruders
we are the earth intruders
muddy with twigs and branches

(forgive this tribe)

we are the earth intruders
we are the earth intruders
muddy with twigs and branches

we are the earth intruders
muddy with twigs and branches
we are the earth intruders

we are the earth intruders
muddy with twigs and branches
marching

we are the earth intruders
muddy with twigs and branches
marching

march
march
march

Don McLean 'Vincent'

Starry
starry night
paint your palette blue and grey

look out on a summer's day
with eyes that know the
darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills
sketch the trees and the daffodils

catch the breeze and the winter chills

in colors on the snowy linen land.
And now I understand what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity
how you tried to set them free.
They would not listen
they did not know how

perhaps they'll listen now.

Starry
starry night
flaming flo'rs that brightly blaze

swirling clouds in violet haze reflect in
Vincent's eyes of China blue.
Colors changing hue
morning fields of amber grain

weathered faces lined in pain
are soothed beneath the artist's
loving hand.
And now I understand what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity
how you tried to set them free.
perhaps they'll listen now.

For they could not love you
but still your love was true

and when no hope was left in sight on that starry
starry night.
You took your life
as lovers often do;
But I could have told you
Vincent
this world was never
meant for one
as beautiful as you.

Starry
starry night
portraits hung in empty halls

frameless heads on nameless walls
with eyes
that watch the world and can't forget.
Like the stranger that you've met

the ragged men in ragged clothes

the silver thorn of bloddy rose
lie crushed and broken
on the virgin snow.
And now I think I know what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity

how you tried to set them free.
They would not listen
they're not
list'ning still
perhaps they never will.
