Lyrics - Quotes

I wanna ride on the crest of sensation
I wanna scream in the whirlpools of love
I wanna drown in a climax of thunder
I wanna be with the fools in the storm

Do what you want and then die when you want to
We're gonna walk on the blood of the meek
We're gonna sail through the oceans of wonder
We're gonna live in the dream that we seek

Ascension Day

We'll crucify the insincere tonight
We'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight
We'll find a way to offer up the night tonight
The indescribable moments of your life tonight
The impossible is possible tonight
Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight

The Smashing Pumpkins
Tonight, Tonight
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness

Down where the walls come crashing
Down where the proudest fall
Down where those fools come rushing in
To where they fell before
Down where the age has passed me
I will be sure
You will be there and I will belong
To me and my foolish heart

Johnny Hates Jazz
Foolish Heart
Turn Back The Clock

Oh whatever makes her happy on a Saturday night
Oh whatever makes her happy, whatever makes it alright

We'll go to peepshows and freak shows
We'll go to discos, casinos
We'll go where people and let go...
Oh whatever makes her happy

Saturday Night
Coming Up

I thought I could live in your world
As years all went by
With all the voices I've heard
Something has died
And when you're in need of someone
My heart won't deny you
So many seem so lonely
With no one left to cry to baby

Guns N Roses
Don't Cry (alt. lyrics)
Use Your Illusion 2

I never thought you'd hurt me
I guess you live and learn
That when you're playing with fire you're bound to get burned
I've been mistreated, I've been used before
I get kicked in the face, still I come back for more

Don't Treat Me Bad

Sometimes you laugh sometimes you cry
And yes, I've cried over you
You've left me blind in paradise
You've left me hungering for the touch of you
Snow white angels run and hide
In the blackness of the night

Never is a long time...

Never Is A Long Time

Where joy should reign
These skies restrain
Shadow your love
The voice trails off again

Stay On These Roads
Stay On These Roads

Daylight fading
Come and waste another year
All the anger and the eloquence are bleeding into fear
Moonlight creeping around the corners of our lawn
When we see the early signs that daylight's fading
We leave just before it's gone

Counting Crows
Daylight Fading
Recovering The Satellites

Feel the breeze?
Time's so near you can almost taste the freedom
There's a warm wind from the south
Hoist the sail and we'll be gone
By morning this will all seem like dream
And if I don't return to sing the song
Maybe just as well
I've seen the news and there's
Not much I can't do ... alone

Anybody Listening?

I hear pounding feet in the streets below
And the women crying and the children know
That there's something wrong
And it's hard to believe that love will prevail

Oh it won't rain all the time
The sky won't fall forever
And though the night seems long
Your tears won't fall forever

Jane Siberry
It Can't Rain All The Time
The Crow soundtrack

My life has been such a whirlwind since I saw you
I've been running round in circles in my mind
And it always seems that I'm following you, girl
Cause you take me to the places
That I'd known I'd never find

REO Speedwagon
Can't Fight This Feeling

I was living for a dream, loving for a moment
Taking on the world, that was just my style
Then I touched your hand, I could hear you whisper
The search is over, love was right before my eyes

The Search Is Over

Morning has come, another day
I must pack my bags and say goodbye...

Hands To Heaven

I saw you dancing out the ocean
Running fast along the sand
A spirit born of earth and water
Fire flying from your hands

Elton John
The One

Don't be alarmed, no don't be concerned
I don't want to change things
Leave them just as they were
I mean, nothing's really different
It's me who feels strange
I'm always lost for words
When someone mentions your name
I know that I'll get over this for sure
I'm not the type who dreams there could be more

Southern Sons
You Were There
Nothing But The Truth

Dreams last so long
Even after you're gone
I know you love me
And soon you will see
You were meant for me
And I was meant for you

Go about my business, I'm doing fine
Besides, what would I say if I had you on the line
Same old story, not much to say
Hearts are broken every day

I'm half alive but I feel mostly dead
I try to tell myself it'll be all right
I just shouldn't think anymore tonight

You Were Meant For Me
Pieces of You

Every night I say a prayer in the hopes that there's a heaven
Everyday I'm more confused, as the saints turn into sinners
All the heroes and legends I knew as a child have turned into idols of clay
And I feel this empty place inside, so afraid that I've lost my way

Show Me The Way
Edge of a Century

Time has stopped before us
The sky cannot ignore us
No one can separate us
For we are all that is left
The echo bounces off me
The shadows lost beside me
There's no more need to protest
Cause now the end begins to end

The Smashing Pumpkins
The Beginning Is The End Is The Beginning
Batman & Robin soundtrack

Tequila in his heartbeat, his veins burnt gasoline
It kept his motor running, but it never kept him clean
They say he loved adventure, Ricky's the wild one
He married trouble had a courtship with a gun

Bang, bang, shoot 'em up, the party never ends
You can't think of dying when that bottle's your best friend

"Accidents will happen," they all heard Ricky say
He fired his six-shot to the wind
That child blew a child away

Skid Row
18 And Life

O' beautiful for spacious skies
But now those skies are threatening
They're beating plowshares into swords
For this tired old man that we elected king
Armchair warriors often fail
And we've been poisoned by these fairy tales
The lawyers clean up all details
Since daddy had to lie

But I know a place where we can go
And wash away this sin
We'll sit and watch the clouds roll by
And the tall grass wave in the wind
Just lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair spill all around me
Offer up your best defence
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence

Don Henley
The End of The Innocence
The End of The Innocence

I know what it's like to be forgotten
Left alone with your simple dreams
But even dreams are fading fast
No one to turn to when you can't sleep at night
Waking up to another day that will soon be over
And if you think that time has forgotten you
Well just look into my eyes
And know the times we'll change

Hall & Oates
Don't Hold Back Your Love

Watch out where the Huskies go
And don't you eat that yellow snow

Frank Zappa
Don't Eat The Yellow Snow

Now Bobby, he's an uptown lawyer
Danny, he's a medicine man
And me, I'm just a singer in a long haired rock 'n roll band
Through the years and miles between us
It's been a long and lonely ride
But if I get a call in the dead of the night
I'd be right by your side

Blood on blood

Bon Jovi
Blood On Blood
New Jersey

There is an answer, some day we will know
And you will ask her, why she had to go
We live and die, we laugh and we cry
You must take away the pain
Before you can begin to live again

Chris De Burgh
Carry Me (Like A Fire In Your Heart)

Is there no sight of light as we stare in the darkness?
Watching the sun arise
Is there no sign of life as we gaze at the waters?
Into the strangers eyes
. . .
Through all the doubt somehow they knew
And stone by stone they built it high
Until the sun broke through
A ray of hope a shining light Ammonia Avenue

The Alan Parsons Project
Ammonia Avenue

Everytime I see you, well the rays of the sun are all
Streaming through the waves in your hair
And every star in the sky is taking aim at your eyes like a spotlight
The beating of my heart is a drum and it's lost
And it's looking for a rhythm like you
You can take the darkness from the deep of the night
And turn it to a beacon burning endlessly bright
I gotta follow it cause everything I know
Well, it's nothing til I give it to you

Air Supply
Making Love Out Of Nothing At All

Have you ever needed someone so bad?
Have you ever wanted someone you just couldn't have?
Did you ever tried so hard
But your world just fall apart
Have you ever needed someone so bad?

Def Leppard
Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad?

Step out the front door like a ghost
Into the fog where no one notices
The contrast of white on white
In between the moon and you
Angels get a better view
Of the crumbling difference between wrong and right

I walk in the air between the rain
Through myself and back again
Where? I don't know

Counting Crows
Round Here
August And Everything After

Don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me

George Michael & Elton John
Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me

This is my heart bleeding before you
This is me down on my knees
These foolish games are tearing me apart
And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart

Excuse me, think I've mistaken you for somebody else
Somebody who gave a damn
Somebody more like myself

Foolish Games
Pieces Of You

I wonder now which way to face
I gather vision of this place
Did we understand
The footsteps in the sand?

Broken Pieces

The hopes we had were much too high
Way out of reach but we had to try
No need to hide, no need to run
Cause all the answers come one by one
The game will never be over
Because we're keeping the dream alive

Keeping The Dream Alive

Thinking, long ago when we were young and free
Love happened easily
And dreams never died, life sung a pretty song
Cause I just can't stand the thought of life without you
Love happened suddenly
We couldn't see where we going wrong
Now those days are gone

The King's Singers
Now Those Days Are Gone
Chanson D'amour

I will walk along these hillsides
The summer 'neath the sunshine
I am feathered by the moonlight
Falling down on me

Counting Crows
A Murder Of One
August And Everything After

It's morning when I go to sleep
In the distant dawn a church bell rings
Another day is coming on
A baby's born, an old man dies
Somewhere young lovers kiss good-bye
I leave my soul and just move on
And wish that I was there to sing this song

Jon Bon Jovi
Midnight In Chelsea
Destination Anywhere

Listen, there's a foghorn blowing
From the coast tonight
Remember making love in the rain?
Strange how laughter looks like crying with no sound
Raindrops taste like tears, without the pain

Another Rainy Night Without You

We've had our share of hard times
But that's the price we paid
And through it all we kept the promise that we made
I swear you'll never be lonely

Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
Washed away a dream of you
But nothing else could ever take you away
'Cause you'll always be my dream come true
Oh my darling, I love you

Skid Row
I Remember You

Everyday I wake up
I thank God that you are still a part of me
We've opened up the door to which
So many people never find the key
And if the sun should ever fail to send its light
We will burn a thousand candles
And make everything alright

I Saw Red
Cherry Pie

I'll be walking the streets tonight
Just trying to get it right
It's hard to see with so many around
You know I don't like being stuck in the crowd
And the streets don't change but maybe their names
I ain't got time for the game cause I need you ... this time

Guns N' Roses

Intransigence is all around... military still in town
Armour plated suits and ties... daddy just won't say goodbye
Referee won't blow the whistle
God is good but will HE listen
I'm nearly great
But there's something I'm missing I left in the duty free
Though you never really belonged to me

Staring At The Sun

If you can give it, I can take it
'Cause if this heart is gonna break it's gonna take a lot to break it
I know tonight, somebody's gonna win the fight
So if you're so tough, come on and prove it
Your heart is down for the count and you know you're gonna lose it
Tonight you're gonna go down in flames
Just like Jesse James

Just Like Jesse James

And for a moment I lose myself
Wrapped up in the pleasures of the world
I've journeyed here and there and back again
But in the same old haunts I still find my friends
Mysteries not ready to reveal
Sympathies I'm ready to return
I'll make the effort, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth
Tomorrow's just an excuse
And you can make it last, forever you
You can make it last, forever you

The Smashing Punpkins
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness

Politician Grannie with your high ideals
Have you no idea how the Majority feels?
So without love and a promised land
We're fools to the rules of a Government plan
Kick out the Style: Bring back the Jam!

Time to eat all your words
Swallow your pride
Open your eyes

Tears for Fears
Sowing the Seeds of Love

I held you for a moment in my hands
The moment with you slipped away like sand
Through my fingers now
In front of me a choice I have to make
To carry on or simply fade away
I lose you either way
I'd like to say that it was easy
It was hard
To say goodbye
I thought that I would die

Letting go of you
Was so hard to do
And I thought that it would kill me but I made it through somehow
And I'm so much stronger now

Stronger Now

I never thought that I would reach you
Feels like this road has been going on for miles
Don't have to write or even see you
'cause there's a light, burning on the inside.

Still, time and time again
We're looking for the love
The one that can inspire

Lift me higher, high as heaven can be
Our love is super love, fly robin fly
Wherever you are, saint or sinner be strong (sono luminus)
Lift me higher, high as heaven can be
Our love is super love, (burn baby burn)

Sono Luminus

I never made promises lightly
There may have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We will walk in fields of gold

Fields of Gold
Ten Summoners Tales

Let me be the only one to keep you from the cold
Now the floor of hell is laid, the stars are bright as gold
They light for you, they shine for you
They burn for all to see
Come into these arms again and set your spirit free

Annie Lennox
Love Song For A Vampire

Well you wave your hand and they scatter like crows
They have nothing that will ever capture your heart
They're just thorns without the rose
Be careful of them in the dark
Oh, if I was the one you chose to be your only one
Oh baby can't you hear me now, can't you hear me now

Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
Every night it's just the same, you leave me lonely now

Tom Waits
Downtown Train
Rain Dogs

Fool upon a hill, trains are overdue
Except what we forgot, nothing's really new
Head above the clouds, eyes are opened wide
Windmill burning down, walk into the light
