    okay we see your challange and will consider whether to respond to it.

    i the meantime we sing

    Fragile
    Like a baby in your arms
    Be gentle with me
    I'd never willingly
    Do you harm

    Apologies
    Are all you ever seem to get from me
    But just like a child
    You make me smile
    When you care for me
    And you know...

    It's a question of lust
    It's a question of trust
    It's a question of not letting
    What we've built up
    Crumble to dust
    It is all of these things and more
    That keep us together

    Independence
    Is still important for us though (we realise)
    It's easy to make
    The stupid mistake
    Of letting go (do you know what I mean)

    My weakness
    You know each and every one (it frightens me)
    But I need to drink
    More than you seem to think
    Before I'm anyone's
    And you know...

    It's a question of lust
    It's a question of trust
    It's a question of not letting
    What we've built up
    Crumble to dust
    It is all of these things and more
    That keep us together

    Kiss me goodbye
    When I'm on my own
    But you know that I'd
    Rather be home

    It's a question of lust
    It's a question of trust
    It's a question of not letting
    What we've built up
    Crumble to dust
    It is all of these things and more
    That keep us together

    it's Depeche Mode Yiann.

    Hello lovely lady
    Can I see you smile,
    Catch it from the corner
    Of my wandering eye.
    Move a little closer,
    Until you touch my sin,
    You can be forgiven.
    Of a story, laced within.
    I know one day, oh now, you'll come in.
    I know one night, you'll disappear.
    What can I do, what can I say.
    (chorus)
    It's standing, push and fall
    Oh that's all it is
    I jump the gun each time you call
    Standing, push and fall
    Oh, that's all it is
    I jump the gun each time you call
    I stand, you push and then I fall
    That's how it is, it's all the same
    Praying wouldn't help me,
    I say it on my knees,
    Heaven's just an angel
    For broken hearts to breed.
    Webbed yourself around me
    Tangled me with skin
    Kissed me with your poison
    Now here we go again.
    I know one day, oh now, you'll come in
    I know one night, you'll disappear
    What can I do, what can I say.

    What I'm listening to now:

    I wanna heal I wanna feel
    What I thought was never real
    I wanna let go of the pain I've held so long

    I wanna heal I wanna feel like I'm close to something real
    I wanna find something I've wanted all along
    Somewhere I belong...

    From: ABBA

    UNA PALOMA BLANCA (one white dove)

    When the sun shines on the mountain
    And the night is on the run
    It's a new day
    It's a new way
    And I fly up to the sun

    I can feel the morning sunlight
    I can smell the new-mown hay
    I can hear God's voice is calling
    For my golden sky light way

    Una paloma blanca
    I'm just a bird in the sky
    Una paloma blanca
    Over the mountains I fly
    No one can take my freedom away

    Once I had my share of losing
    for they locked me on a chain
    Yes they tried to break my power
    oh I still can feel the pain

    Una paloma blanca
    I'm just a bird in the sky
    Una paloma blanca
    Over the mountains I fly
    No one can take my freedom away

    Una paloma blanca
    I'm just a bird in the sky
    Una paloma blanca
    Over the mountains I fly
    No one can take my freedom away

    for terry :p

    So true funny how it seems
    always in time, but never in line for dreams
    Head over heels when toe to toe
    This is the sound of my soul,
    this is the sound
    I bought a ticket to the world,
    but now I've come back again
    Why do I find it hard to write the next line
    Oh I want the truth to be said

    Huh huh huh hu-uh huh
    I know this much is true
    Huh huh huh hu-uh huh
    I know this much is true

    With a thrill in my head and a pill on my tongue
    dissolve the nerves that have just begun
    Listening to Marvin (all night long)
    This is the sound of my soul,
    this is the sound

    Always slipping from my hands,
    sand's a time of its own
    Take your seaside arms and write the next line
    Oh I want the truth to be known

    Huh huh huh hu-uh huh
    I know this much is true
    Huh huh huh hu-uh huh
    I know this much is true

    I bought a ticket to the world,
    but now I've come back again
    Why do I find it hard to write the next line
    Oh I want the truth to be said

    Huh huh huh hu-uh huh
    I know this much is true
    Huh huh huh hu-uh huh
    I know this much is true
    This much is true
    I know, I know, I know this much is true

    What I'm listening to right now:

    Is this the real life-
    Is this just fantasy-
    Caught in a landslide-
    No escape from reality-
    Open your eyes
    Look up to the skies and see-
    I?m just a poor boy,i need no sympathy-
    Because I?m easy come,easy go,
    A little high,little low,
    Anyway the wind blows,doesn?t really matter to me,
    To me

    Mama,just killed a man,
    Put a gun against his head,
    Pulled my trigger,now he?s dead,
    Mama,life had just begun,
    But now I?ve gone and thrown it all away-
    Mama ooo,
    Didn?t mean to make you cry-
    If I?m not back again this time tomorrow-
    Carry on,carry on,as if nothing really matters-

    Too late,my time has come,
    Sends shivers down my spine-
    Body?s aching all the time,
    Goodbye everybody-I?ve got to go-
    Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth-
    Mama ooo- (any way the wind blows)
    I don?t want to die,
    I sometimes wish I?d never been born at all-

    I see a little silhouetto of a man,
    Scaramouche,scaramouche will you do the fandango-
    Thunderbolt and lightning-very very frightening me-
    Galileo,galileo,
    Galileo galileo
    Galileo figaro-magnifico-
    But I?m just a poor boy and nobody loves me-
    He?s just a poor boy from a poor family-
    Spare him his life from this monstrosity-
    Easy come easy go-,will you let me go-
    Bismillah! no-,we will not let you go-let him go-
    Bismillah! we will not let you go-let him go
    Bismillah! we will not let you go-let me go
    Will not let you go-let me go
    Will not let you go let me go
    No,no,no,no,no,no,no-
    Mama mia,mama mia,mama mia let me go-
    Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me,for me,for me-

    So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye-
    So you think you can love me and leave me to die-
    Oh baby-can?t do this to me baby-
    Just gotta get out-just gotta get right outta here-

    Nothing really matters,
    Anyone can see,
    Nothing really matters-,nothing really matters to me,

    Any way the wind blows....

    hey we were singing that one in the oakville thread on our board :)

    Since this is officially Edmonton now, here's a great song for us to sing [face_laugh]

    Ride Forever
    I was born north of Great Slave, 1898
    And I rode near all my life on a ranch near Devil's Gate
    And I've seen this world about me bend and flip and change
    Hey, it feels like rain -- that's a thunder cloud

    We'll, I've been called a coward, but I've seen two World Wars
    And I lost my son, Virgil, my Korean reward
    And my Lucy died last summer -- you ask me if I cry?
    Hell, I'll show you tears, they're all over this ground
    They're falling from these blue Alberta skies

    But I'm going to ride forever
    You can't keep horsemen in a cage
    Should the angels call, well it's only then
    I might pull in the reins

    They tell me I'm an old man, they tell me I am blind
    They took my driver's license, this house ain't far behind
    I say jump back all you big suits 'cause you've got something wrong
    I ain't gone, no, I ain't gone
    I am still breathing and I still have my pride
    And I have my memories, your life, it never dies
    Like the wind that blows in thunder
    Or the stallion on the fly, I got it all
    And I'm standing tall underneath these blue Alberta skies

    And I'm going to ride forever
    You can't keep horsemen in a cage
    Should the angels call, well it's only then
    I might pull in the reins

    So I say to all you old men, don't let yourself get broke
    If you think the world's gone crazy
    And it's scratching at your throat
    It's time to dust off that old saddle, get it on a horse
    Kick up your spurs, we're gonna run like stink
    We're gonna tear across these blue Alberta skies

    We're gonna ride forever
    You can't keep horsemen in a cage
    Should the angels call it's only then
    I might pull in the reins.

    Paul Gross, beatiful, Blue Skies of Alberta, priceless

    four strong winds that blow slowly
    Seven seas that run high
    All these things that don't change come what may
    Now our good times are all gone
    And i'm bound for moving on
    I'll look for you if i'm ever back this way

    Guess i'll go out to alberta
    Weather's good there in the fall
    Got some friends that i can go to workin' for
    Still i wish you'd change your mind
    If i asked you one more time
    But we've been thru that a hundred times or more

    Four strong winds that blow lonely
    Seven seas that run high
    All these things that don't change come what may
    Now our good times are all gone
    And i'm bound for movin' on
    I'll look for you if i'm ever back this way

    If i get there before the snow flies
    And if things are going good
    You could meet me if i send you down the fare
    But by then it would be winter
    Nothing much for you to do
    And the wind sure blows cold way out there

    Four strong winds that blow slowly
    Seven seas that run high
    All these things that don't change come what may
    Now our good times are all gone
    And i'm bound for movin' on

    I'll look for you if i'm ever back this way
    Yes, i'll look for you if i'm ever back this way

    way-aw-haw iskwewaw, way-aw-haw iskwewaw
    kakiyaw pappa-ho!
    kakiyaw pappa-ho!

    Little freestyle Cree drumming for ya :p

    Friday is when you left me
    So I drink myself to sleep
    Sunday is when I wake up
    Not to remember a thing

    My friends all say the same thing
    I don't know my new girl too well
    That all this lying gets to me
    And no one seems to give a ****

    The way she talks to every guy in the bar
    Well I guess it should've raised some kind of alarm
    Who'd ever think I'd go and end up
    Like all the other guys that you gone and ****ed

    Well it ain't no surprise
    That you turn me on and leave
    Well it ain't no surprise
    That you turned around on me

    I don't know why you won't give me what I need
    Well it ain't so surprise
    That that ***** is leaving me! leavin' me!

    A little TOAD for ya, too ;)

    I stand in the pouring rain
    You counldn?t even be there to pick me up
    Yer taking me for granted again
    Yer running outa time and yer outa luck!

    Just a moment of weakness
    I should examine my head!
    Just a moment of weakness
    I never meant a word I said!

    I?m sick with the bejing flu
    And you choose then not to come home
    A week later I caught you
    Kissing a girl who was my clone!

    Just a moment of weakness
    I should examine my head!
    Just a moment of weakness
    I never meant a word I said!

    Oh why should I stay and pretend?
    You make me laugh again
    My darling, truth is we are not even friends!
    Oh love comes and goes
    Where yer heart stops no one knows
    How did I wind up in this mess here with you?

    Just a moment of weakness
    I should examine my head!
    Just a moment of weakness
    I never meant a word I said

    This song was written by Karen Willson on a suggestion by Melinda Snodgrass just before A NEW HOPE was released. Available on a filksong CD on the internet.

    Star to Steer By

    Chorus: Oh, give me a star to steer by
    A cause to die for, a love to win,
    And I will seek the sky.

    Hope springs in a rebel's breast,
    Knowing death is near, but fighting on
    To win a free man's grave

    Life limps on for those he's left behind.
    We'll meet another time, another life,
    Where secret lovers dine.

    Chorus

    Gently, she draws her children near
    And whispered 'way their fears, for by moonset
    The soldiers will have gone.

    Somewhere, her loved on roams the sky.
    Death weaves his silken lies: a shield gone,
    A robe of rest well won.

    Chorus

    Hidden deep, a princess' secrets lie,
    Her brothers beside her slain. Dark master smiles.
    This battle he has won.

    Head high, she meets death unafraid,
    Knowing the price she's paid is worth its end
    Dark master's hold broken.

    Chorus

    War lingers on. Its roots grow deep in space,
    Inspired and fed by hate. We will be free ---
    The rebel's cry is strong.

    For them this dream: Together they'll carve a place.
    Destiny they will create. The time has come;
    The force of peace has won!

    Chorus

    nice :)

    remember this adi?

    I?ll be seeing you
    In all the old familiar places
    That this heart of mine embraces
    All day through

    In that small café
    The park across the way
    The children?s carousel
    The chestnut tree
    The wishing well

    I?ll be seeing you
    In every lovely summer?s day
    In everything that?s light and gay
    I?ll always think of you that way

    I?ll find you in the morning sun
    And when the night is new
    I?ll be looking at the moon
    But I?ll be seeing you

    The Voice

    Won't you take me back to school
    I need to learn the golden rule
    Won't you lay it on the line
    I need to hear it just one more time
    Verse: Oh won't you tell me again
    Can you feel it
    Won't you tell me again
    Tonight

    Each and every heart it seems
    Is bounded by a world of dreams
    Each and every rising sun
    Is greeted by a lonely one
    Verse: Oh won't you tell me again...

    'Cos out on the ocean of life my love
    There's so many storms we must rise above
    Can you hear the spirit calling
    As it's carried across the waves
    You're already falling
    It's calling you back to face the music
    And the song that is coming through
    You're already falling
    The one that it's calling is you

    Make a promise take a vow
    And trust your feelings it's easy now
    Understand the voice within
    And feel the changes already beginning
    Verse: Oh won't you tell me again...

    And how many words have I got to say
    And how many times will it be this way
    With your arms around the future
    And your back up against the past
    You're already falling it's calling you
    On to face the music
    And the song that is coming through
    You're already falling
    The one that it's calling is you.

    Each and every heart it seems
    Is bounded by a world of dreams
    Each and every rising sun
    Is greeted by a lonely one
    Won't you tell me again
    Can you feel it
    Oh won't you tell me again
    Tonight
