    2nd best garth song:

    The Change
    by Garth Brooks

    One hand
    Reaches out
    And pulls a lost soul from harm
    While a thousand more go unspoken for
    They say what good have you done
    By saving just this one
    It's like whispering a prayer
    In the fury of a storm

    And I hear them saying you'll never change things
    And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
    But it's not the world that I am changing
    I do this so this world will know
    That it will not change me

    This heart
    Still believes
    The love and mercy still exist
    While all the hatred rage and so many say
    That love is all but pointless in madness such as this
    It's like trying to stop a fire
    With the moisture from a kiss

    And I hear them saying you'll never change things
    And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
    But it's not the world that I am changing
    I do this so this world will know
    That it will not change me

    As long as one heart still holds on
    Then hope is never really gone

    I hear them saying you'll never change things
    And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
    But it's not the world that I am changing
    I do this so this world we know
    Never changes me

    What I do is so
    This world will know
    That it will not change me

    Contrary to popular belief, not ALL rap songs are about violence and degrading to woman. Yes I am aware that 2 Pac has other songs full of that, but this song stands out among the others. It has an excellent message about being strong and standing your ground when others try and knock you down.

    Keep your head up
    by 2Pac

    Little somethin for my godson Elijah and a little girl named Corinne

    Verse One:
    Some say the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice
    I say the darker the flesh then the deeper the roots
    I give a holler to my sisters on welfare
    Tupac cares, if don't nobody else care

    And uhh, I know they like to beat ya down a lot
    When you come around the block brothas clown a lot
    But please don't cry, dry your eyes, never let up
    Forgive but don't forget, girl keep your head up

    And when he tells you you ain't nuttin don't believe him
    And if he can't learn to love you, you should leave him
    Cause sista you don't need him
    And I ain't tryin to gas ya up, I just call em how I see em

    You know it makes me unhappy (what's that)
    When brothas make babies, and leave a young mother to be a pappy

    And since we all came from a woman
    Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
    I wonder why we take from our women
    Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
    I think it's time to kill for our women
    Time to heal our women, be real to our women

    And if we don't we'll have a race of babies
    That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
    And since a man can't make one
    He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
    So will the real men get up
    I know you're fed up ladies, but keep your head up

    Chorus
    Oooh child things are gonna get easier
    Oooh child things are gonna get brighter
    Oooh child things are gonna get easier
    Oooh child things are gonna get brighter

    Verse Two:
    Aiyyo, I remember Marvin Gaye, used to sing ta me
    He had me feelin like black was tha thing to be
    And suddenly tha ghetto didn't seem so tough
    And though we had it rough, we always had enough

    I huffed and puffed about my curfew and broke the rules
    Ran with the local crew, and had a smoke or two
    And I realize momma really paid the price
    She nearly gave her life, to raise me right
    And all I had ta give her was my pipe dream
    Of how I'd rock the mic, and make it to tha bright screen

    I'm tryin to make a dollar out of fifteen cents
    It's hard to be legit and still pay tha rent
    And in the end it seems I'm headin for tha pen
    I try and find my friends, but they're blowin in the wind

    Last night my buddy lost his whole family
    It's gonna take the man in me to conquer this insanity
    It seems tha rain'll never let up
    I try to keep my head up, and still keep from gettin wet up

    You know it's funny when it rains it pours
    They got money for wars, but can't feed the poor
    Say there ain't no hope for the youth and the truth is
    it ain't no hope for tha future

    And then they wonder why we crazy
    I blame my mother, for turning my brother into a crack baby
    We ain't meant to survive, cause it's a setup
    And even though you're fed up
    Huh, ya got to keep your head up

    Chorus

    Verse Three:
    And uhh
    To all the ladies havin babies on they own
    I know it's kinda rough and you're feelin all alone
    Daddy's long gone and he left you by ya lonesome
    Thank the Lord for my kids, even if nobody else want em

    Cause I think we can make it, in fact, I'm sure
    And if you fall, stand tall and comeback for more
    Cause ain't nuttin worse than when your son
    wants to kno why his daddy don't love him no mo'

    You can't complain you was dealt this
    hell of a hand without a man, feelin helpless
    Because there's too many things for you to deal with
    Dying inside, but outside you're looking fearless

    While tears, is rollin down your cheeks
    Ya steady hopin things don't all down this week
    Cause if it did, you couldn't take it, and don't blame me
    I was given this world I didn't make it

    And now my son's getten older and older and cold

    You Gotta Be by Des'ree

    Listen as your day unfolds
    Challenge what the future holds
    Try and keep your head up to the sky
    Lovers, they may cause you tears
    Go ahead release your fears
    Stand up and be counted
    Don't be ashamed to cry

    CHORUS:
    You gotta be
    You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
    You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
    You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
    You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
    You gotta stay together

    All I know, all I know,
    Is love will save the day

    Herald what your mother said
    Readin' the books your father read
    Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time
    Some may have more cash than you
    Others take a different view
    my oh my heh, hey

    CHORUS

    Don't ask no questions;
    it goes on without you
    Leaving you behind if you can't stand the pace
    The world keeps on spinning
    You can't stop it, if you try to
    This time it's danger staring you in the face

    oh oh oh
    Remember
    (CHORUS)
    My oh my heh, hey, hey

    CHORUS til fade

    David Duchovny Why Wont You Love Me
    by Bree Sharp

    It's Sunday night,
    I am curled up in my room,
    The TV light,
    fills my heart like a balloon

    I hold it in as best I can,
    I know I'm just another fan,
    But I can't help feeling I could love this secret agent man

    And I can't wait any more for him to discover me,
    I got it bad for David Duchovny,
    David Duchovny, why won't you love me, why won't you love me

    My friends all tell me,
    "Girl you know it's just a show",
    But deep within his eyes,
    I see me wrapped up like a bow

    Watching the sky for a sign,
    the FBI is on my mind,
    I'm waiting for the day,
    when my lucky stars aline

    In the form of,
    David Duchovny floating above me,
    in the alien light,
    of the spaceship of love I need,
    David Duchovny hovering above me,
    American Heathcliff brooding and comely,
    David Duchovny why won't you love me,
    why won't you love me,
    Why won't you love me

    So smooth and so smart,
    He's abducted my heart,
    And I'm falling apart,
    From the looks i recieve,
    From those eyes I can't leave,
    Well you can say I'm naive,
    But he told me to believe

    Oooooooooooooooooooh

    My bags are packed,
    I am ready for my flight,
    Wanna put an end to,
    my daydream days and sleepless nights

    Sitting like a mindless clone,
    wishing he would tap my phone,
    Just to hear the breath of the man, the myth, the monotone.

    And I would say...
    David Duchovny why won't you love me,
    why won't you love me,
    Why won't you love me,
    David Duchovny why won't you love me,
    Why won't you love me,
    why won't you love me,
    David Duchovny I want you to love me,
    to kiss and to hug me,
    Debrief and debug me,
    David Duchovny, I know you could love me,
    I'm sweet and I'm cuddly,
    I'm gonna kill SCULLY!
    David Duchovny why won't you love me,
    why won't you love me,
    Why won't you love me......

    Yeah...

    I'll be waiting
    In Nevada

    "Desperado" Glenn Frey and Don Henley

    Desperado,
    why don't you come to your senses?
    You been out ridin' fences for so long now
    Oh, you're a hard one
    I know that you got your reasons
    These things that are pleasin' you
    Can hurt you somehow

    Don' you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
    She'll beat you if she's able
    You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet

    Now it seems to me, some fine things
    Have been laid upon your table
    But you only want the ones that you can't get

    Desperado, oh, you ain't gettin' no youger
    Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
    And freedom, oh freedom well, that's just some people talkin';
    Your prison is walking through this world all alone

    Don't your feet get cold in the winter time?
    The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
    It's hard to tell the night time from the day
    You're loosin' all your highs and lows
    Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away?

    Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
    Come down from your fences, open the gate
    It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you.
    You better let somebody love you, before it's too late


    "The Blue Train" by Jennifer Warnes
    (Maura O'Connell sings it wistfully;
    Lind Ronstadt sings it beautifully!)

    Watching the long faces
    Riding this run down track
    And the lost places
    From a dream that never brings them back
    And the sad truth is
    Nothing but a cold hard fact
    Chorus:

    I'm riding the blue train
    Over the miles yet to cover
    A ghost in a hurry to fade
    I'm taking it one way to nowhere
    Afraid you might be there

    To find me inside this blue train

    Counting the burned bridges
    Trailing this rusted wreck
    As our back pages
    Scatter in the dust we left
    Like a pearl necklace
    Falling from around my neck

    Repeat chorus

    Away down the low road
    A ticket to, an empty room
    A rendezvous unknown

    You might be theeere.


    I warned you; I'm older than most of the PFF!
    :)

    While I love 80s music, Hair Bands, and Hip Hop, I absolutely love 70s Funk and Soul music. If you've ever watched, "Original Kings of Comedy", Steve Harvey pretty much echos my sentiments. Here is one of my all time favorite love songs:

    Cause I Love you
    Lenny Williams

    Girl, you know I love you
    No matter what you do
    And I hope you understand me
    Every word I say is true
    ?Cause I love you

    Baby, I?m thinkin? of you
    Tryin? to be more of a man for you
    And I don?t have much riches
    But we gonna see it through
    ?Cause I love you

    Ho...ho...ho...

    Some men need lots of women
    For their passions to feel
    But I want only you, girl
    If it?s in, if it?s in, if it?s in God?s will
    ?Cause I, ?cause I love you

    I, I love you, baby
    With all my heart and soul
    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    Love you
    I need you
    I want you
    I need you

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh your love makes me grow stronger
    It keeps goin? on, oh, baby
    I?m glad I found you
    I just love to be around you, oh, baby
    You?ve been so good to me
    Oh, baby
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    Hmm, hmm
    Hmm...hmm...mmm...
    You know
    One time things got so bad until
    I had to go to one of my friends and talk to him
    And I told him, I said, ?You know
    I?m having problems with the woman that I love
    It seems that I call her on the phone and I just can?t get her to answer
    And then I went to her house and I saw a car parked in the driveway
    I knocked on the door, but still my knocks went unanswered
    And then I went home and I-I watched television until television went off
    And then I played my records until I just didn?t want to hear them anymore
    And finally I went to bed, but I found myself waking up a few hours later
    And the tears were running down my face?
    And my friend told me, he said, ?Lenny,
    You just oughta forget about her?
    But I told my friend, I said, ?You know
    Maybe you?ve never been in love like I?ve been in love
    And maybe you?ve never felt the things that I?ve felt?
    But this is what I told my friend
    I said, ?You know, sometimes you get lonely
    You get lonely, you get lonely?
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    And I cry, I cry
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    And the tears would fill up in the wells
    In the wells of my eyes, baby
    And then it got so bad, it got so bad
    Till one time I thought I?d roll myself up in a big ol? ball and die
    And then I met you, darlin?
    And you smiled at me
    Oh, oh, it was such a pretty smile, yes, it was
    And you reached out your hand
    You helped me (Helped), you helped me (Helped me), you helped, oh
    I?m glad, baby, I?m glad, baby
    Oh, oh, oh, baby, ey, ey, ey
    I wanna believe you, baby
    I wanna believe you, baby
    I?m gonna love you, oh, oh, oh, baby
    I?m glad, I?m glad, baby
    Oh, oh, yeah, baby, oh, oh, oh
    I love you, I love you
    I love you, I love you, oh
    I love you, I love you
    I love you, I love you
    I love you, I love you
    I love you

    (Do yourself a favor and go listen to this song.)

    Here's some more soul for you. If you've seen the PBS special, "Doo Wop 50," you may recognize this one:

    Let It Be Me
    Betty Everett & Jerry Butler


    I bless the day I found you
    I want to stay around you
    And so I beg you, let it be me

    Don?t take this heaven from one
    If you must cling to someone
    Now and forever, let it be me

    Each time we meet love
    I find complete love
    Without your sweet love what would life be

    So never leave me lonely
    Tell me you love me only
    And that you?ll always let it be me

    Each time we meet love
    I find complete love
    Without your sweet love what would life be

    So never leave me lonely
    Tell me you love me only
    And that you?ll always---let--it?be--me

    that is one of the most beautiful songs Chewie but I didn't hear the original version first, I heard the Colin Raye version. (country)....

    Ok here is my contribution today. My absolute favorite Cranberries song, and I don't believe it was ever on the radio, so it's definately worth listening to at least once....

    Everything I Said
    off the No Need to Argue album (1994)
    by the Cranberries

    Ohhh, It makes me lonely,
    It makes me very lonely,
    When I see you here, waitin' on.

    Ohhh, It makes me tired,
    It makes me very tired,
    And inside of me, lingers on.

    But you have your heart, oh,
    Don't believe it,
    And you ran outside, waiting on.

    Everything I said, oh,
    Well I meant it,
    And inside my head, holdin' on.

    'Cause if I died tonight,
    Would you hold my hand, oh,
    Would you understand?

    But if I lied in spite,
    Would you still be here,
    No, would you disappear?

    Surely must be you,
    Surely must be you,
    But I don't make you lonely.

    I'll get over you,
    I'll get over you,
    But I don't make you lonely.

    La, da, da, da, da, da...

    Someone once introduced me to these two songs. It was the first time I had heard Floyd or Rage. And they ended up being my favorite songs from each band. So I always think of them together...and I'm sure you can guess which line is my favorite from the two...And for the record I am not completely sure the Rage ones are right, I always thought that's what they were but no one I know ever can agree on what they are. Ugh. It's like an urban legend.

    Comfortably Numb
    by Pink Floyd


    Hello.
    Is there anybody in there?
    Just nod if you can hear me.
    Is there anyone home?

    Come on, now.
    I hear you're feeling down.
    Well I can ease your pain,
    Get you on your feet again.

    Relax.
    I need some information first.
    Just the basic facts:
    Can you show me where it hurts?

    There is no pain, you are receding.
    A distant ship's smoke on the horizon.
    You are only coming through in waves.
    Your lips move but I can't hear what you're sayin'.
    When I was a child I had a fever.
    My hands felt just like two balloons.
    Now I got that feeling once again.
    I can't explain, you would not understand.
    This is not how I am.
    I have become comfortably numb.

    Ok.
    Just a little pinprick.
    There'll be no more --Aaaaaahhhhh!
    But you may feel a little sick.

    Can you stand up?
    I do believe it's working. Good.
    That'll keep you going for the show.
    Come on it's time to go.

    There is no pain, you are receding.
    A distant ship's smoke on the horizon.
    You are only coming through in waves.
    Your lips move but I can't hear what you're sayin'.
    When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,
    Out of the corner of my eye.
    I turned to look but it was gone.
    I cannot put my finger on it now.
    The child is grown, the dream is gone.
    I have become comfortably numb.

    Green Day: "Good Riddance" ~Nimrod


    *guitar plays and stops*
    *guitar plays and stops with the utterance of a very faint four letter word*
    *guitar plays proper*
    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
    It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right
    I hope you had the time of your life
    So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind
    Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
    *some string instruments*
    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.
    It´s something unpredictable, but in the end is right
    I hope you had the time of your life.
    It´s something unpredictable, but in the end is right
    I hope you had the time of your life

    METALLICA: "Hero of the Day" ~ LOAD


    The window burns to light the way back home
    A light that warms no matter where they go
    They're off to find the hero of the day
    But what if they should fall by someone's wicked way
    Still the window burns
    Time so slowly turns
    And someone there is sighing
    Keepers of the flames
    Do you feel your name?
    Did you hear your babies crying?
    Mama they try and break me
    Still they try and break me
    Excuse me while I tell them how to feel
    These things return to me that still seem real
    Now deservingly this easy chair
    But the rocking starts the wheels of despair
    Don't want your hate
    But the fist I make
    For you still no fear
    No not on me
    So please excuse me while I tell them how I feel
    But now the dreams end
    And now the dreams end
    They everlast the night
    So build a wall
    Behind it crawl
    And hide until it's light
    So can you hear your babies crying now?
    Still the window burns
    Time so slowly turns
    And someone there is sighing
    Keepers of the flames
    Did you hear your name?
    Did you hear your babies crying?
    But now the dreams end
    And now the dreams end
    They everlast the night
    So build a wall
    Behind it crawl
    And hide until it's light
    So can't you hear your babies crying now?
    Oh they try and break me
    Oh they try and break me
    Oh they try and break me
    Oh they try
    Oh they try
    Oh they try and break me
    Oh they try and break me
    Oh they try and break me
    Oh they try
    Oh they try

    Really cool song - didn't actually know the lyrics until I looked them up just now, but this is one of those songs that I love getting stuck in my head. :D It's just one of *those.* ;) Pretty cool lyrics too, now that I've looked.

    P.S. If you like Evanesence, you'd LOVE Lacuna Coil. I *highly* recommend them.

    Stately Lover
    Lacuna Coil - In A Reverie

    I just need you absolutely
    all the fears in your mind
    I just want you absolutely
    to sail this ship of mine

    I don't know what the hell you're saying
    'cause you're going blind
    using all the lies they told you
    to hurt your mind

    And I can breathe now...

    It's there, pretends to be a guide for you
    like a candle in the dark
    lies like a really cold breeze in the air
    step by step you'll lose your faith

    I just need you miserably
    broken man come to me
    I just need you desperately
    just want to change your mind

    Landslide by Fleetwood Mac

    I took my love and I took it down
    Climbed a mountain and turned around
    And I saw my reflection in the snow-covered hills
    'til the landslide brought it down
    Oh, mirror in the sky - What is love?
    Can the child within my heart rise above?
    Can I sail through the changin' ...ocean tides
    Can I handle the seasons of my life?
    I don't know .....I don't know
    Well I've been afraid of changin'
    because I've built my life around you
    But time makes you bolder , even children get older
    And I'm getting older too....
    So, take my love ...take it down
    Climb a mountain and turn around
    and if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills ...
    well the landslide will bring it down
    The landslide will bring it down

    Slipping Through My Fingers by ABBA

    Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
    Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
    I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness
    And I have to sit down for a while
    The feeling that I'm losing her forever
    And without really entering her world
    I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter
    That funny little girl

    Slipping through my fingers all the time
    I try to capture every minute
    The feeling in it
    Slipping through my fingers all the time
    Do I really see what's in her mind
    Each time I think I'm close to knowing
    She keeps on growing
    Slipping through my fingers all the time

    Sleep in our eyes, her and me at the breakfast table
    Barely awake, I let precious time go by
    Then when she's gone there's that odd melancholy feeling
    And a sense of guilt I can't deny
    What happened to the wonderful adventures
    The places I had planned for us to go
    (Slipping through my fingers all the time)
    Well, some of that we did but most we didn't
    And why I just don't know

    Slipping through my fingers all the time
    I try to capture every minute
    The feeling in it
    Slipping through my fingers all the time
    Do I really see what's in her mind
    Each time I think I'm close to knowing
    She keeps on growing
    Slipping through my fingers all the time

    Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
    And save it from the funny tricks of time
    Slipping through my fingers...

    Slipping through my fingers all the time

    Schoolbag in hand she leaves home in the early morning
    Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile...

    Blinded by the Light
    by manfred mann's earth band
    (*interesting note. this was written and originally performed by Bruce Springsteen. it was his first #1 hit, but #1 for writing not performing as manfred mann is the one that got to #1 on the charts with it*)--and there is nothing like the scene in Blow where they play this song and show that huge montage of clips. everytime i see it i am blown away how sweet it really is. it's like the perfect statement for that time period.

    Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night
    Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night
    Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night

    Madman drummers bummers, Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
    In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat
    With a boulder on my shoulder, feelin' kinda older, I tripped the merry-go-round
    With this very unpleasin', sneezin' and wheezin, the calliope crashed to the ground
    The calliope crashed to the ground

    But she was...
    Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night
    Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night
    Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night
    Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night

    Some silicone sister with a manager mister told me I go what it takes
    She said "I'll turn you on sonny to something strong, play the song with the funky break"
    And go-cart Mozart was checkin' out the weather chart to see if it was safe outside
    And little Early-Pearly came by in his curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride
    Asked me if I needed a ride

    But she was...
    Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night
    Blinded by the light

    She got down but she never got tired
    She's gonna make it through the night
    She's gonna make it through the night

    But mama, that's where the fun is
    But mama, that's where the fun is
    Mama always told me not to look into the eye's of the sun
    But mama, that's where the fun is

    Some brimstone baritone anticyclone rolling stone preacher from the east
    Says, "Dethrone the dictaphone, hit it in it's funny bone, that's where they expect it least"
    And some new-mown chaperone was standin' in the corner, watching the young girls dance
    And some fresh-sown moonstone was messin' with his frozen zone, reminding him of romance
    The calliope crashed to the ground

    But she was...
    Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night
    Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night

    ~ Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night
    ~ Madman drummers bummers, Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
    ~ Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night

    going back to my country days...the first one is for a friend, the 2nd is my favorite...

    Letting Go
    by Suzy Bogguss

    She'll take the painting in the hallway,
    The one she did in jr. high
    And that old lamp up in the attic,
    She'll need some light to study by.

    She's had 18 years to get ready for this day
    She should be past the tears, she cries some anyway

    Oh oh letting go
    There's nothing in the way now,
    Oh letting go, there's room enough to fly
    And even though, she's spent her whole life waiting,
    It's never easy letting go.

    Mother sits down at the table
    So many things she'd like to do
    Spend more time out in the garden
    Now she can get those books read too.

    She's had 18 years to get ready for this day
    She should be past the tears, she cries some anyway.

    Oh oh letting go
    There's nothing in the way now,
    Oh letting go, there's room enough to fly
    And even though, she's spent her whole life waiting,
    It's never easy letting go.

    Oh oh letting go
    There's nothing in the way now,
    Oh letting go, there's room enough to fly
    And even though, she's spent her whole life waiting,
    It's never easy letting go.

    Aces
    by Suzy Bogguss


    Well my old friend said to me
    I ain't being what I'm supposed to be
    Well I don't know, it could be true
    I know I wasn't always there for you

    Now you're ready to walk out, you're ready to run
    Talk to me, can't you see
    I would never want to do what it seems I've done
    You can't deal me the aces and think I wouldn't play
    Don't let this be the reason you would walk away

    The things you think that I should do
    I've never understood that part of you
    I know I've tried to be a friend
    But you feel undermined and hurt again

    Now don't let it convince you, don't take it to heart
    Compromise and realize you can never really run everything you start
    You can't deal me the aces and think I wouldn't play
    Don't let this be the reason you would walk away

    And I guess I said I couldn't see
    How things could turn out like they've come to be
    And if I lied, if I knew
    I was only trying to think of you

    Now you're ready to walk out, you're ready to run
    Talk to me, can't you see
    I would never want to do what it seems I've done
    You can't deal me the aces and think I wouldn't play
    Don't let this be the reason you would walk away

    The River And The Highway...

    This one always makes me bawl...

    She follows the path of least resistance
    She doesn't care to see the mountain top
    She twists and turns with no regard to distance
    She never comes to a stop

    And she rolls, she's a river
    Where she goes, time will tell
    Heaven knows, he can't go with her
    And she rolls, all by herself
    All by herself

    He's headed for a single destination
    He doesn't care what's standing in his path
    He's a line between two points of separation
    He ends just where it says to on the map

    And he rolls, he's a highway
    Where he goes, time will tell
    Heaven knows, she can't go with him
    And he rolls, all by himself
    All by himself

    And every now and then, he offers her a shoulder
    And every now and then, she overflows
    And every now and then, a bridge crosses over
    It's a moment that every lover knows

    And she rolls (and he rolls)
    She's a river (he's a highway)
    Where she goes (where he goes)
    Time will tell (Time will tell)
    Heaven knows she can't go with him (he can't go with her)
    And she rolls all by herself
    And he rolls all by himself
    Fare thee well

    ok apparently i have nothing better to do then post here today.... :p I use to be obsessed with the whole grunge movement and Pearl Jam was my favorite. Ten was the best album and Black was the best song they ever did. period. concert kicked major butt too. eddie vedder is AMAZING to watch onstage. I will never forget when they were doing Jeremy and the ENTIRE audience was doing the whole "do, do, do..." along with him, it was spooky. :p

    BLACK
    by PEARL JAM
    Hey ooh.
    Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay,
    were laid spread out before me as her body once did.
    All five horizons revolved around her soul, as the earth to the sun.
    Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn.
    Ooh, and all I taught her was everything.
    Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore.

    And now my bitter hands shade beneath the clouds of what was everything.
    All the pictures have all been washed in black.
    Tattooed everything.

    I take a walk outside,
    I'm surrounded by,
    some kids at play.
    Oh, I can feel their laughter.
    Oh, so why do I sear?
    Ooh, and twisted thoughts that spin, around my head.
    I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning.
    How quick the sun can drop away.

    And now my bitter hands,
    cradle broken glass of what was everything.
    All the pictures have all been washed in black.
    Tattooed everything.
    All the love gone bad,
    turned my world to black.
    Tattooed all I see,
    All that I am.
    All I'll be. Yeah.

    Uh huh... Uh huh... Ooh.
    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, oh, can't it be mine?
    Oh... Ohh yeah oh.
    Do do do do do do do (x20 total) Yeah... Yeah...
    Hi. (x6)
    Yeah. (x3)

    If all goes well tonight, these words will not only be relevant but prophetic:

    Can't Fight This Feeling Lyrics
    REO Speedwagon


    I can't fight this feeling any longer.
    And yet I'm still afraid to let it flow.
    What started out as friendship,
    Has grown stronger.
    I only wish I had the strength to let it show.

    I tell myself that I can't hold out forever.
    I said there is no reason for my fear.
    Cause I feel so secure when we're together.
    You give my life direction,
    You make everything so clear.

    And even as I wander,
    I'm keeping you in sight.
    You're a candle in the window,
    On a cold, dark winter's night.
    And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might.

    And I can't fight this feeling anymore.
    I've forgotten what I started fighting for.
    It's time to bring this ship into the shore,
    And throw away the oars, forever.

    Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore.
    I've forgotten what I started fighting for.
    And if I have to crawl upon the floor,
    Come crushing through your door,
    Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore.

    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 alone I'd never find.

    And even as I wander,
    I'm keeping you in sight.
    You're a candle in the wind,
    On a cold, dark winter's night.
    And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might.

    And I can't fight this feeling anymore.
    I've forgotten what I started fighting for.
    It's time to bring this ship into the shore,
    And throw away the oars, forever.

    Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore.
    I've forgotten what I started fighting for.
    And if I have to crawl upon the floor,
    Come crushing through your door,
    Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore.

    You and me, baby,
    we're impossible;
    Who'd have thought that we could?
    You and me, baby, we're nobody's fools;
    We are nothin' but good.
    You and me babe,
    We're something else --
    Who's to say we're not?
    You and me babe
    When all else fails,
    We will have what we want.

    Chorus:
    This is all I wanted
    All I've wiated for.

    You and me babe
    We fell down laughing
    Couldn't get out fast enough.
    Who's to say there's a right or wrong way;
    We don't believe in that stuff.
    You and me took a breath of air
    And spit out all the dust.
    Others tire of their love affairs; and leave 'em there to rust.

    2 Choruses

    You and me baby
    We know everything
    And we have been everywhere
    You and me baby, we
    grew a couple of wings,
    and flew away on a dare.
    You and me
    In a silent room;
    we prayed for what we got.
    For ever after will be too soon;
    'cause we will have what we want.

    2 Choruses

    You and me, baby.
    You and me, baby.

    You've Got a Friend
    by James Taylor
    When you're down and troubled
    and you need a helping hand
    and nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
    Close your eyes and think of me
    and soon I will be there
    to brighten up even your darkest nights.

    You just call out my name,
    and you know wherever I am
    I'll come running, oh yeah baby
    to see you again.
    Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
    all you have to do is call
    and I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
    You've got a friend.

    If the sky above you
    should turn dark and full of clouds
    and that old north wind should begin to blow
    Keep your head together and call my name out loud
    and soon I will be knocking upon your door.

    You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
    I'll come running to see you again.
    Winter, spring, summer or fall
    all you got to do is call
    and I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

    Hey, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend?
    People can be so cold.
    They'll hurt you and desert you.
    Well they'll take your soul if you let them.
    Oh yeah, but don't you let them.

    You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
    I'll come running to see you again.
    Oh babe, don't you know that,
    Winter spring summer or fall,
    Hey now, all you've got to do is call.
    Lord, I'll be there, yes I will.
    You've got a friend.
    You've got a friend.
    Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
    Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
    You've got a friend.

    it's really funny to think of how different the best versions of landslide are...
    the fleetwood mac version is great, especially the one she redid a few years back.....but the dixie chicks is also good. my favorite though is the pumpkins versions i think. talk about 3 totally different groups and styles of music.

    Surrounded by Chantal Kreviazuk

    I was there
    When you shone as bright as Bethlehem from afar
    I was there
    When you were young and strong and perverted
    And everything that makes a young man a star
    Oh, you were a star

    I was there
    And I swear to God and on my mother's grave
    On everything I have or ever will embrace
    I was there
    And I saw it with my own two eyes

    And now it's all around me, it's all around me
    I'm surrounded
    And now it's all around me, it's all around me
    You surround me like a circle

    Do do do do do do

    I was there
    Come on, tell me I wasn't worth stickin' it out for
    Well, I was there
    And I know I was worth it, 'cause if I wasn't worth it
    That makes me worse off than you are

    It's all around me, it's all around me
    I'm surrounded
    You know it's all around me, it's all around me
    You surround me like a circle

    But don't you lose sight of me now
    Don't you lose sight of me now

    Do do do do do do do
    Don't lose sight of me now

    'Cause I was there
    When they dropped the bomb
    You know I remember the bomb
    And I still hear the bomb
    And I still fight the bomb
    You know I still fear the bomb
    You know I still hate the bomb
    Sometimes I still get the call

    So don't you lose sight of me now
    Don't you lose sight of me now

    You know you're all around me, you're all around me
    (Don't you lose ...)
    I'm surrounded
    (Sight of me now)
    You know you're all me, you're all around me
    (Don't you lose ...)
    I'm surrounded
    (Sight of me now)
    You know you're all around me, you're all around me
    (Don't you lose ...)
    I'm surrounded
    (Sight of me now)
    Now it's all around me, you're all around me
    You surround me like a circle

    Love you all the time
    I'm just a fool
    A fool in love with you

    Earth angel, earth angel
    The one I adore
    Love you forever and ever more
    I'm just a fool
    A fool in love with you

    I fell for you and I knew
    The vision of your love-loveliness
    I hoped and I pray that someday
    I'll be the vision of your hap-happiness oh, oh, oh, OH!

    A fool in love with you-ou-ou

    The vision of your loveliness
    I hope and pray that someday
    That I'll be the vision of your happiness

    Earth angel, earth angel
    Please be mine
    My darling dear
    Love you all the time
    I'm just a fool
