    Ok I went back 20 pages and 3-4 months and I couldn't find a thread that had this. If I am wrong and there is one WAY back, then oops, sorry! :p But I figured we have a music thread and Chewie is so good about posting lyrics through out the pages...we need a place for them...

    Ok...Favorite lyrics from songs...either partial lyrics or the whole song...

    I will start with one of my favorites:
    (**sniff snif** the last verse always makes me get mushy)

    The Rainbow Connection
    Written by Paul Williams
    Sung by Kermit the Frog

    Why are there so many songs about rainbows,
    And what's on the other side?
    Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
    And rainbows have nothing to hide.
    So we've been told and some choose to believe it,
    I know they're wrong, wait and see.
    Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
    The lovers, the dreamers and me.

    Who said that every wish would be heard and answered,
    when wished on the morning star?
    Somebody thought of that,
    And someone believed it,
    And look what it's done so far.
    What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
    And what do we think we might see?
    Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
    The lovers, the dreamers and me.

    All of us under its spell,
    we know that it's probably magic....

    Have you been half asleep,
    And have you heard voices?
    I've heard them calling my name.
    Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
    The voice might be one and the same.
    I've heard it too many times to ignore it.
    It's something that I'm supposed to be.
    Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
    The lovers, the dreamers and me.
    La, la la, La, la la la, La Laa, la la, La, La la laaaaaaa

    Starfighters in the sky (To: Marty Robbins' "Ghost Riders in the sky")
    Parody Lyrics copyright 2001 by Steven Cavanagh.


    A guard stood at a rebel outpost on their darkest day
    And watched the X and Y wing fighters lift and fly away
    When all at once a battered freighter followed with a roar
    A wookiee and a scoundrel.. saved the day at Yavin 4.

    Yi-pi-yi-ay, Yi-pi-yi-o
    Starfighters in the sky

    The time went by, they found a home amid the ice and snow
    till Vader and the walkers came, and made the rebels go.
    A fleet of star destroyers waited for them in the sky
    with two starfighter escorts.. they could wave them all goodbye

    Yi-pi-yi-ay, Yi-pi-yi-o
    Starfighters in the sky

    They flew in squadrons Red and Rogue and Grey and Green and Gold
    Their ships and nerves were made of steel, and all their hearts were bold
    They all went out to Sullust, made a giant fleet, and soon
    they'd fought a giant battle.. at the sanctuary moon

    Yi-pi-yi-ay, Yi-pi-yi-o
    Starfighters in the sky

    The death star was in pieces, and the fighters swept the field
    A party was on Endor, for the guys who took the shield
    And so they formed up for a pass, for one last final run
    parading with the fireworks.. because the day was won.

    Yub-yub-yi-ay, Yub-yub-yi-o
    Starfighters in the sky
    Starfighters in the sky

    Okay, so here's one of my favorite songs, lyrics and all [face_love] He may be one of the homeliest men in music history, but there is something about him that draws me to his music.

    Nobody Knows Me
    (Lyle Lovett)

    And I like cream in my coffee
    And I like to sleep late on Sunday
    And nobody knows me like my baby
    And I like eggs over easy
    With flour tortillas
    And nobody knows me like my baby

    And nobody holds me
    And nobody knows me
    Nobody knows me like my baby

    But it was a dream made to order
    South of the border
    And nobody knows me like my baby
    And she cried man how could you do it
    And I swore that there weren't nothing to it
    But nobody knows me like my baby

    And nobody holds me
    And nobody knows me
    Nobody knows me like my baby

    And I like cream in my coffee
    And I hate to be alone on Sunday
    And nobody knows me like my baby

    Here's my favorite hopeful song, sung by Wynonna Judd:

    Only Love

    Words and Music by Marcus Hummon and Roger Murrah

    I have sailed a boat or two
    Out on the wild blue
    Yonder to dreams that rarely come true
    As far as I can see
    From the island of green
    I can put my trust in just one thing

    (Chorus)

    And only love sails straight from the harbor
    And only love will lead us to the other shore
    Out of all the flags I've flown
    One flies high and stands alone
    Only love

    Peaceful waters, raging sea
    It?s all the same to me
    I can close my eyes and still be free
    When the waves come crashing down
    And the thunder rolls around
    I can feel my feet on solid ground

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Oooooo! :D I found an Ani Song whose lyrics I could print! :p

    gratitude

    thank you
    for letting me stay here
    thank you for taking me in
    thank you
    for the beer and the food
    thank you
    for loaning me bus fare
    thank you for showing me around
    that was a very kind thing to do
    thank you
    for the use of the clean towel
    thank you for half of your bed
    we can sleep here like brother and sister,
    you said

    but you changed the rules
    in an hour or two
    and i don't know what you
    and your sisters do
    but please don't
    please stop
    this is not my obligation
    what does my body have to do
    with my gratitude?

    look at you
    little white lying
    for the purpose of justifying
    what you're trying to do
    i know that you feel my resistance
    i know that you heard what i said
    otherwise you wouldn't need the excuse

    thank you
    for letting me stay here
    thank you for taking me in
    i don't know where else
    i would have turned
    but i don't come and go
    like a pop song
    that you can play incessantly
    and then forget when it's gone
    you can't write me off
    and you don't turn me on

    so don't change the rules
    in an hour or two
    i don't know what you and your
    sisters do
    but please don't
    please stop
    this is not my obligation
    what does my body have to do
    with my gratitude?

    It's Italian. I translate magazines for work and this is what it spit out:

    Á. Me travels Together

    It travels together with me
    Me you giuderò
    And all of this that I know t ' will teach
    Until it will arrive the day in which
    You will succeed in living without me (x3)

    It travels together with me

    I will bring where do never have been
    And I will show you the wonder of the world
    and when the moment will arrive in which will go
    you, you will drive
    you will teach him/it to another
    another as you

    It travels together with me

    I don't know if these are complete but here goes:

    99 Luftballoons

    Hast Du etwas Zeit fuer mich
    Dann singe ich ein Lied fuer Dich
    Von 99 Luftballons
    Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
    Denkst Du vielleicht grad' an mich
    Dann singe ich ein Lied fuer Dich
    Von 99 Luftballons
    Und dass sowas von sowas kommt

    99 Luftballons
    Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
    Hielt man fuer UFOs aus dem All
    Darum schickte ein General
    'ne Fliegerstaffel hinterher
    Alarm zu geben, wenn's so waer
    Dabei war'n da am Horizont nur 99 Luftballons

    99 Duesenjaeger
    Jeder war ein grosser Krieger
    Hielten sich fuer Captain Kirk
    Das gab ein grosses Feuerwerk
    Die Nachbarn haben nichts gerafft
    Und fuehlten sich gleich angemacht
    Dabei schoss man am Horizont
    Auf 99 Luftballons 99 Kriegsminister
    Streichholz und Benzinkanister
    Hielten sich fuer schlaue Leute
    Witterten schon fette Beute
    Riefen: Krieg und wollten Macht
    Mann, wer haette das gedacht
    Dass es einmal soweit kommt
    Wegen 99 Luftballons

    99 Jahre Krieg
    Liessen keinen Platz fuer Sieger
    Kriegsminister gibt's nicht mehr
    Und auch keine Duesenflieger
    Heute zieh ich meine Runden
    Seh' die Welt in Truemmern liegen
    Hab' 'nen Luftballon gefunden
    Denk' an Dich und lass' ihn fliegen

    I'm gonna post Lyrics from a Christian band so if youve got something against us don't read them

    Pillar
    Idivisable (dunno who wrote it)


    For all the people of the word that dont understand
    Exactly what it is we have here in this motherland
    See the Father's hand started up a master plan
    There's been many through the test of time take a stand
    But had they ran who knows where we would be now
    I thank God it's something I don't have to think about
    Instead my thoughts are on the ones who laid it on the line
    KIA gave their lives to let the freedom shine
    But in the meantime i think of those of your kind
    And wonder how it you get things so messed up inside you mind
    Just think a secons how long it's been going on before you
    There the one's who even helped you have the right to argue

    Stop complaining move along
    Open you eyes see what's going on
    We need to get back to the ways of the days of old
    One nation under God indivisable

    Chourus

    All the people let me hear you give a hollar
    In God we trust,In God we trust
    We stamp it on our penny nickle, dime ,quarter, dollar
    in God we trust,In God we trust
    The people of the nation let me hear you give a hollar
    In God we trust ,In God we trust
    We stamp it on our penny nickle, dime, quarter, dollar
    In God we trust ,In God we trust

    Th other day I saw the news somebody else complaining
    They want the motto taken off of the Benjamin Franklin
    They got a problem with my God and that I believe in it
    But the don't got a problem with the money when they spend it
    They're so offended by 4 words that need no explanation
    In GOD we trust the motto of this greatest nation
    Not just a motto but something that we truly believe
    If you don't like it you can pack a bag and you can leave

    One nation under God indivisible
    You can't take back that, that was never yours


    now if your a Christian there AWsome Lyrics my fav song ever

    I've been in a mood of late...



    I?m rolling.........
    I?ve gotta get a new balm
    I?ve gotta get a tight tension on
    I?ve got to slip it up until the rush gets gone
    I?ve got to feel it with the hot mind on
    I?m rolling
    Hey norman was it thrown with a broken arm?
    Bottle it up, to keep it warm
    I?m rolling
    I know you got it but you got to go
    I?m gonna get into the batter so the mix might glow
    I hate to do it, but I did it though
    I?m gonna bite into the body like the risk is no risk
    I got the souped up car and what you call tripping on the boom bap etymological
    I ride the fader and I ride it low
    I?m gonna slip into the field like han solo
    I?m rolling
    One two into the amplifier, the electrified two
    Into the amplifier, and you got to get to
    Into the amplifier, one two into the amplifier
    I?m rolling

    this song breaks my heart everytime i hear it. it's *so* gorgeous.

    Radiohead - "How to Disappear Completely"

    That there
    That's not me
    I go
    Where I please
    I walk through walls
    I float down the Liffey
    I'm not here
    This isn't happening
    I'm not here
    I'm not here

    In a little while
    I'll be gone
    The moment's already passed
    Yeah it's gone
    And I'm not here
    This isn't happening
    I'm not here
    I'm not here

    Strobe lights and blown speakers
    Fireworks and hurricanes
    I'm not here
    This isn't happening
    I'm not here
    I'm not here

    Two songs I happen to relate to...hmmm...giving away too much perhaps...losing the mystery...oh well, here goes:

    ANOTHER SUITCASE IN ANOTHER HALL
    From the Movie Soundtrack Evita
    Sung by Madonna

    EVA
    I don't expect my love affairs to last for long
    Never fool myself that my dreams will come true
    Being used to trouble I anticipate it
    But all the same I hate it--wouldn't you?
    So what happens now?

    CHE
    Another suitcase in another hall

    EVA
    So what happens now?

    CHE
    Take your picture off another wall

    EVA
    Where am I going to?

    CHE
    You'll get by, you always have before

    EVA
    Where am I going to?
    Time and time again I've said that I don't care
    That I'm immune to gloom, that I'm hard through and through
    But every time it matters all my words desert me
    So anyone can hurt me--and they do
    So what happens now?

    CHE
    Another suitcase in another hall

    EVA
    So what happens now?

    CHE
    Take your picture off another wall

    EVA
    Where am I going to?

    CHE You'll get by you always have before

    EVA
    Where am I going go?
    Call in three months time and I'll be fine I know
    Well maybe not that fine, but I'll survive anyhow
    I won't recall the names and places of each sad occasion
    But that's no consolation--here and now
    So what happens now?

    CHE
    Another suitcase in another hall

    EVA
    So what happens now?

    CHE
    Take your picture off another wall

    EVA
    Where am I going to?

    CHE
    You'll get by, you always have before

    EVA
    Where am I going to?

    CHE
    Don't ask anymore

    AND:
    From Buffy, the Musical
    Once More with Feeling
    sung by Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar)

    (Buffy)
    Every single night, the same arrangement,
    I go out and fight the fight.
    Still I always feel this strange estrangement,
    Nothing here is real, nothing here is right.
    I've been making shows of trading blows,
    Just hoping no one knows,
    That I've been going through the motions,
    Walking though the part,
    Nothing seems to penetrate my heart.

    I was always brave and kind of righteous,
    Now I find I'm wavering.
    Crawl out of your grave, you find this fight
    Just doesn't mean a thing

    (Henchman)
    She ain't got that swing.

    (Buffy)
    -pause- Thanks for noticing.

    (Demon & Henchmen)
    She is pretty well with fiends from Hell,
    But lately we can tell,
    That she's just going through the motions,
    Faking it somehow.

    (Demon)
    She's not even half the girl she...owww!

    (Buffy)
    Will I stay this way forever?
    Sleepwalk through my life's endeavor.

    (Handsome Young Man)
    How can I repay...

    (Buffy)
    Whatever!
    I don't want to be,
    Going through the motions,
    Losing all my drive.
    I can't even see,
    If this is really me,
    And I just wanna be alive.

    Yes it was. My absolute all time favorite by far! :D I am a huge fan of Buffy and of musicals and I have to say I was a bit worried about it. I feel bad now that I even doubted Joss's genius for a milisecond. I actually laughed, cried, and stood up and cheered during that ep. :p It IS just a tv show, but wow it was amazing. I think writing a musical must be tough to begin with, but writing one that has to work out the issues and problems of characters that have had seasons and seasons of angst & backstories already, impressive. PLUS he was foreshadowing what was to come as well. Definately impressive.

    I taped the version they first aired it (the longer one) and watched it non stop for a about a week, until I downloaded the soundtrack and burned a cd. I couldn't wait for them to release it. Good thing, cause I think it took like a year for it to come out. :p

    That was actually the episode that got me started watching Buffy. When I heard they were making one of the episodes a musical I knew I had to give it a shot.

    Please tell me you went back and watched all the episodes you missed!!

    I have watched Buffy off & on since the begining because I had a bunch of different friends that really loved it. I stopped watching during part of the Riley years and went back to it religiously when I saw "The Gift" was going to be on. It looked good. It was AMAZING. I love that ep! The music is the best. Plus the whole line of "Sometimes the hardest thing in this world is to live in it" is what Buffy tells Dawn before she jumps and I LOVE that Dawn said it to Buffy in the musical. ah. so good.

    I have a couple tapes of my favorite episodes all together and I WAS taping the early eps I didn't have on tape off FX. Then I moved and the dumb cable company doesn't carry the channel. :_| So this Xmas I am asking for all the seasons on dvd from my family. That and FINALLY the Twin Peaks set since I am a huge freak of that and only have the eps on tape. :D I also have some cool behind the scenes Buffy stuff on tape as well.

    Some of the best eps (after the musical of course) were earlier seasons.
    Nightmares ROCKED. Finding out what everyone's nightmares were. Amazing.

    Ahm a LOT of the angst-y Angel stuff rocked, & especially when he first turned to Angelus.

    Giles as stuffy british man is my thing, so his eps where we find out he use to be into black magic were great!

    Band Candy was hilarious!! The adults acting like kids. Giles all rebel without a cause. I was in heaven. :p

    All the begining ones with Spike and Dru were soooooo good.

    And FAITH, oh boy. She is the best. I loved her character. All the competition with her and "B" :p So good. And she was SUCH a great bad girl!

    OK- Just a piece from Walk thru the Fire and also the lyrics to Life's a Show...(the other Buffy songs from the Musical). Loved her songs the most.:

    Walk Thru the Fire
    Sung by cast, lead by Buffy

    (Buffy)
    I touch the fire, and it freezes me
    I look into it, and it's black
    Why can't I feel?
    My skin should crack and peel
    I want the fire back
    Now, through the smoke, she calls to me
    To make my way across the flame
    To save the day
    Or maybe melt away
    I guess it's all the same

    Life's a Show
    Sung by Buffy

    (Buffy)
    Life?s a show and we all play a part
    And when the music starts,
    We open up our hearts

    It?s all right if some things come out wrong.
    We?ll sing a happy song
    And you can sing along.

    Where?s there?s life,
    There?s hope.
    Everyday?s
    A gift.
    Wishes can
    Come true.
    Whistle while
    You work.
    So hard
    All day.

    To be like other girls
    To fit in in this glittering world.
    Don?t give me songs.
    Don?t give me songs.

    Give me something to sing about.
    I need something to sing about.

    Life?s a song
    You don?t get to rehearse.
    And every single verse
    Can make it that much worse.

    Still my friends
    Don?t know why I ignore
    The million things or more
    I should be dancing for.

    All the joy
    Life sends.
    Family
    And friends.
    All the twists
    And bends
    Knowing that
    It ends.
    Well that
    Depends?

    On if they let you go,
    On if they know enough to know

    That when you bow
    You leave the crowd.

    There was no pain,
    No fear, no doubt
    Till they pulled me out
    Of heaven.

    So that?s my refrain.
    I live in hell
    ?Cause I?ve been expelled
    From heaven.
    I think I was in heaven.

    So give me something to sing about.
    Please give me something.

    (Spike)
    Life?s not a song.
    Life isn?t bliss.
    Life is just this.
    It?s living.
    You?ll get along.
    The pain that you feel
    Only can heal
    By living.
    You have to go on living.
    So that one of us is living.

    (Dawn)
    The hardest thing in this world is to live in it.

    Du Hast Lyrics translated with explination:

    You
    you have *
    you have me
    you have asked me
    you have asked me and I have said nothing

    Do you want, until death seperates you,
    to be faithful to her for all days

    No

    Do you want, until death, which would seperate, **
    to love her, even in bad days

    No

    * When Till is just saying "Du hast," it sounds as if he could either be saying "Du hast" (you have) or "Du hasst" (you hate). This is probably to give the song a double meaning, even though the official lyrics say "Du hast."

    ** There is another sort of double meaning here. If the line is read as "Tod der Scheide" it would be "until the death of the **oops** " and not "until death, which would seperate" ("Tod, der scheide"). The whole song is a play on German wedding vows (Wollen Sie einander lieben und achten und die Treue halten bis dass der Tod euch scheidet? - Do you want to love and respect each other and to remain faithful, until death seperates you?). Instead of answering with "Ja," Till says "Nein," finally answering the question he said nothing to in the beginning.
