Please remember me...

Loreena McKennitt
Dante's Prayer
The Book of Secrets

It's all over, I'm here
There is nothing to fear
Chris, what's haunting you?

I Still Believe
Miss Saigon

Lift the Wings
That carry me away from here and
Fill the Sail that breaks the line to home
But when I'm miles and mile apart from you
I'm beside you when I think of you a Stóirín
And I'm with you as I dream of you a Stóirín
And a song will bring you near to me a Stóirín a Grá

Lift The Wings

...and like a fool who will never see the truth
I keep thinking something's gonna change

There's a danger in loving somebody too much
And it's sad when you know it's your heart they can't touch
There's a reason why people don't stay who they are
Baby sometimes love's just ain't enough

Patty Smyth and Don Henley
Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough

Oh what can I do?
It's raining rain from the skies
It's raining tears from my eyes, over you...

Sandra Bullens
It's Raining On Prom Night

These glory days can take their toll, so catch me now, before I turn to gold
Yeah we'd love to hear your story just as long as it tells where where we are -
that where we are is where we're meant to be
Oh come on - make it up yourself - you don't need anybody else
And I promise I won't sell these days to anybody else in the world but you.
No-one but you

Glory Days
This Is Hardcore

The sweetest song is silence that I've never heard
Funny how your feet in dreams never touch the earth
In a wood full of princes, freedom is a kiss
But the prince hides his face
From dreams in the mist

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
Every moment I'm awake the further I'm away

These Dreams

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you
But I don't know how

What's The Story Morning Glory

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time

So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf of good health and good time
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial
For what it's worth, it was worth all the while

It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right
I hope you had the time of your life

Good Riddance (Time of your Life)

Cos everytime I seem to fall in love
Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the heart but then I hit the wall
Crash! Boom! Bang!

Crash! Boom! Bang!
Crash! Boom! Bang!

Oh my love, it's you that I dream of
Oh my love, since that day
Somewhere in my heart I'm always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

Belinda Carlisle
Summer Rain
Runaway Horses

It's the heart that's afraid of breaking that never learns to dance
It's the dream that's afraid of waking that never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken who cannot seem to give
And the soul that's afraid of dying that never learns to live

The Rose

I remember when we could sleep on stones
Now we lie together in whispers and moans
When I was all messed up
And I heard opera in my head
Your love was a light bulb
Hanging over my bed

Baby Baby Baby light my way

Ultra Violet (Light My Way)
Achtung Baby

I wish I could just make you turn around, turn around and see me cry
There's so much I need to say to you, so many reasons why
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, 'cos there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face
Take a look at me now, 'cos there's just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against all odds and that's what I've got to face

Phil Collins
Against All Odds

When you're standing in deep water
And you're bailing yourself out with a straw
And when you're drowning in deep water
And you wake up making love to a wall
Well it's these little time that help to remind
It's nothing without love, love, love

Deep Water

For they told you life is hard
Misery from the start,
It's dull, it's slow, it's painful
But I tell you life is sweet
In spite of the misery
There's so much more, be grateful
So, who will you believe
Who will you listen to
Who will it be
'Cause it's high time that you decide
It's time to make up your own
Your own state of mind

Oh they told you life is long
Be thankful when it's done
Don't ask for more, be grateful
But I tell you life is short
Be thankful because
Before you know it
It will be over
'Cause life is sweet, life is also very short

Natalie Merchant
Life is Sweet

We couldn't all be cowboys
So some of us are clowns
I hope that everybody can find a little flame
Me, I say my prayers and I just light myself on fire
And I walk out on the wire once again

Counting Crows
Goodnight Elisabeth
Recovering The Satellites

Chances thrown
Nothing's free
Longing for what used to be
Still it's hard
Hard to see
Fragile lives, shattered dreams

The Offpsring
The Kids Aren't Alright

Who's gonna pick you up when you fall?
Who's gonna hang it up when you call?
Who's gonna pay attention to your dreams?
Who's gonna plug your ears when you scream?

You can't go on think nothing's wrong
Who's gonna drive you home tonight?

The Cars

If you were an angel
I would cut off your wings
To keep you with me.


I drive by the homeless sleeping on a cold dark street
Like bodies in an open grave
Underneath the broken old neon sign
That used to read JESUS SAVES

A mile away live the rich folks
And I see how they're living it up
While the poor they eat from hand to mouth
The rich is drinkin' from a golden cup

And it just makes me wonder
Why so many lose, so few win

Sometimes I wish I didn't know now the things I didn't know then

Something To Believe In
Flesh And Blood

We spin a world from cruel to kind
And make our futures a downward slide
The strong get strong but still want more
But day by day, the giants thaw.

Tomorrow must be calling with an open door
There's no one left to start a revolution anymore
We need some flames
To burn down every door

The Lightning Seeds
Bound in a Nutshell
Cloud Cuckoo Land

Watch the early morning sun
Drip like blood from the day
See the pretty people run
So many games to play
See the blue suburban dream
Under the jet plane sky
Sleep away and dream a dream
Life is just a lullaby

Everything Will Flow
Head Music

Oh Jesse, paint you pictures, 'bout how it's gonna be.
By now I should know better, your dreams are never free.
But tell me all about, our little trailer by the sea.
Oh Jesse, you can always sell any dream to me.

Joshua Kadison

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life,
I know you'll be a star in somebody else's sky, but why
Why, why can't it be, why can't it be mine

Pearl Jam

Well, I am an idiot walking a tightrope of fortune and fame
I am an acrobat swinging trapezes through circles of flame
If you've never stared off in the distance, then your life is a shame
And though I'll never forget your face
sometimes I can't remember my name

Counting Crows
Mrs. Potter's Lullaby, This Desert Life

So you scream from behind your door, say what's mine is mine, and not yours
I may have too much, but I'll take my chances
Cause God's stopped keeping score
And you cling to the things they sold you
Didn't you cover your eyes when they told you that he can't come back
Cause he has no children to come back for

It so hard to learn, there's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope when there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too late
So maybe we should all be praying for time

George Michael
Praying For Time
Listen Without Prejudice

So tired of this straight line, and everywhere you turn
There's vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting, you keep on building the lies
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.

Sarah McLachlan

A man is an island, but the water is deep
And the shore on the other side is ragged and steep

To look for perfection is a lonely old ride
It takes a whole lot of courage and a whole lot of pride

When you look for independence and you get what you want
How come you look back, thinking what have I done?

But time and again, it dawns on me
It's the price we pay for liberty
I should have know, we all need a place to call home

Joey Tempest
A Place To Call Home

Well, there ain't no luck in these loaded dice
But baby if you give me just one more try
We can pack up our old dreams and our old lives
We'll find a place where the sun still shines

Bon Jovi

There was a hole inside his soul a manicure could not fill
So he found himself a whore to love while daisies choked in the window sill.

Innocence Maintained

It's my life, It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life

Bon Jovi
It's My Life

Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken, your best friend always sticking up for you even when I know you're wrong.
Can you imagine no first dance, freeze-dried romance, five hour phone conversation, the best soy latte that you ever had... and me

Drops of Jupiter

I wish I was a girl so that you could believe me
And I could shake this static everytime I try to sleep
I wish for all the world that I could say
'Hey Elizabeth, you know, I'm doing all right these days."

But I can't sleep at night.

Counting Crows
I Wish I Was A Girl
This Desert Life

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to guide them along
So maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares, and go

Downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown, don't wait a minute more
Downtown, everything's waiting for you

Petula Clark
