  I guess you have to have a few years under your belt to really appreciate these lyrics.

Like a Rock
Written by - Bob Seger


I Stood there boldly
Sweatin' in the sun
Felt like a million
Felt like number one
The height of summer
I'd never felt that strong
Like a rock

I was eighteen
Didn't have a care
Working for peanuts
Not a dime to spare
But I was lean and
Solid everywhere
Like a rock

My hands were steady
My eyes were clear and bright
My walk had purpose
My steps were quick and light
And I held firmly
To what I felt was right
Like a rock

Like a rock, I was strong as I could be
Like a rock, nothin' ever got to me
Like a rock, I was something to see
Like a rock

And I stood arrow straight
Unencumbered by the weight
Of all these hustlers and their schemes
I stood proud, I stood tall
High above it all
I still believed in my dreams

Twenty years now
Where'd they go?
Twenty years
I don't know
I sit and I wonder sometimes
Where they've gone

And sometimes late at night
When I'm bathed in the firelight
The moon comes callin' a ghostly white
And I recall
I recall

Like a rock, standin' arrow straight
Like a rock, chargin' from the gate
Like a rock, carryin' the weight
Like a rock

Like a rock, the sun upon my skin
Like a rock, hard against the wind
Like a rock, I see myself again
Like a rock

  God, that's beautiful. But now, I have this sudden craving to go out... and buy a Chevrolet.

I wonder how that all happened?

Growing up in/alongside Detroit has ruined and played out Bob Seger for me, sadly :(

hmm. I watch too much tv.

hmm! it's like we're soul mates!

...I guess this means we should probably have sex or something.

it's the rules, after all. soul mates = sexual relations.

PS it's good to see you again Libra :)

  I Think It's Going to Rain Today by Claudine Longet

Broken windows and empty hallways
A pale dead moon in the sky streaked with gray
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Scarecrows dressed in the latest styles
With frozen smiles to chase love away
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Lonely, lonely
Tin can at my feet
Think I'll kick it down the street
That's the way to treat a friend

Bright before me the signs implore me
To help the needy and show them the way
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

I agree, the radio ruined him for a long time. I used to poke fun at him everytime he came on the radio.
Now it's been a few years since I heard him and a lot of his stuff if fresh for me now.
For some reason this song keeps sticking in my head. The lyrics kind of remind me of me.

I love that song. I have the Neil Diamond version from way back in the 70's on vinyl.

  That's such a good sad song.

I Think It's Going to Rain Today was written by Randy Newman back in the mid '60's (yeah, the same Randy from "short people got no reason to live" fame and Toy Story). I really like the Judy Collins and cough...gag...Neil Diamond versions.

  Yeah, Neil Diamond was another one that the radio ruined for lots of folks.
A really good singer/songwriter that suffered from overexposure.

  Make Your Own Kind Of Music by Mama Cass Elliot (of the Mamas and the Papas)

Nobody can tell ya
There's only one song worth singing
They may try and school ya
'Cause it hangs them up
to see someone like you

You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind music
Even if nobody else sings along

You're gonna be knowing
The loneliest kind of lonely
It may be rough going
Just to do your thing
the hardest thing to do

You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind music
Even if nobody else sings along

And if you cannot take my hand
If you must be going, I will understand

You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind music
Even if nobody else sings along

No no no no
Even if nobody else sings along
If nobody else sings along

  Sad Song- Oasis

Sing a sad song
In a lonely place
Try to put a word in for me
Itís been so long
Since I found this place
You better put in two or three
We as people, are just walking íround
Our heads are firmly fixed in the ground
What we donít see
Well it canít be real
What we donít touch we cannot feel

Where weíre living in this town
The sun is coming up and itís going down
But itís all just the same at the end of the day
And we cheat and we lie
Nobody says itís wrong
So we donít ask why
Cause itís all just the same at the end of the day
Weíre throwing it all away
Weíre throwing it all away
Weíre throwing it all away at the end of the day

If you need it
Something I can give
I know Iíd help you if I can
If your honest and you say that you did
You know that I would give you my hand
Or a sad song
In a lonely place
Iíll try to put a word in for you
Need a shoulder? well if thatís the case
You know thereís nothing I wouldnít do

Where weíre living in this town
The sun is coming up and itís going down
But itís all just the same at the end of the day
When we cheat and we lie
Nobody says itís wrong
So we donít ask why
Cause itís all just the same at the end of the day

Donít throw it all away
Donít throw it all away
Donít throw it all away
Donít throw it all away
Throwing it all away
Throwing it all away
Throwing it all away

Throwing it all away
Throwing it all away
Youíre throwing it all away at the end of the day

Metallica- Fade To Black

Life it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

Things are not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this canít be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now heís gone

No one but me can save myself, but itís too late
Now I canít think, think why I should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now I will just say good-bye

  Underworld - Born Slippy


Drive boy dog boy
Dirty numb angel boy
In the doorway boy
She was a lipstick boy
She was a beautiful boy
And tears boy
And all in your innerspace boy
You had
hands girl boy
and steel boy
You had chemicals boy
I've grown so close to you
Boy and you just groan boy
She said comeover comeover
She smiled at you boy.

Let your feelings slip boy
But never your mask boy
Random blonde bio high density rhythm
Blonde boy blonde country blonde high density
You are my drug boy
You're real boy
Speak to me and boy dog
Dirty numb cracking boy
You get wet boy
Big big time boy
Acid bear boy
Babes and babes and babes and babes and babes
And remembering nothing boy
You like my tin horn boy and get
Wet like an angel
Derail

You got a velvet mouth
You're so succulent and beautiful
Shimmering and dirty
Wonderful and hot times
On your telephone line
And god and everything
On your telephone
And in walk an angel

And look at me your mom
Squatting pissed in a tube-
hole at Tottenham Court Road
I just come out of the ship
Talking to the most
Blonde I ever met
Shouting
Lager lager lager lager
Shouting
Lager lager lager lager
Shouting...
Lager lager lager
Shouting
Mega mega white thing
Mega mega white thing
Mega mega white thing
Mega mega
Shouting lager lager lager lager
Mega mega white thing
Mega mega white thing
So many things to see and do
In the tube hole true
Blonde going back to Romford
Mega mega mega going back to Romford
Hi mom are you having fun
And now are you on your way
To a new tension
headache



A classic.

  Guus Meeuwis & Vagant - Het Is Een Nacht


Je vraagt of ik zin heb in sigaret
Het is twee uur 's nachts, we liggen op bed
In een hotel in een stad, waar niemand ons hoort
Waar niemand ons kent en niemand ons stoort
Op de vloer ligt een lege fles wijn
En kledingstukken die van jou of mij kunnen zijn
Een schemering, de radio zacht en deze nacht heeft alles
Wat ik van een nacht verwacht


Het is een nacht, die je normaal alleen in films ziet
Het is een nacht, die wordt bezongen in het mooiste lied
Het is een nacht waarvan ik dacht dat ik hem nooit beleven zou
Maar vannacht beleef ik hem met jou


Ik ben nog wakker en staar naar het plafond
En denk aan hoe de dag lang geleden begon
Het zomaar er vandoor gaan met jou
Niet wetend waar de reis eindigen zou
Nu lig ik hier in een wildvreemde stad
En heb ik net de nacht van mijn leven gehad
Maar helaas er komt weer licht door de ramen
Hoewel voor ons de wereld vannacht heeft stilgestaan


Het is een nacht, die je normaal alleen in films ziet
Het is een nacht, die wordt bezongen in het mooiste lied
Het is een nacht waarvan ik dacht dat ik hem nooit beleven zou
Maar vannacht beleef ik hem met jou


Maar een lied blijft slechts bij woorden
De film is in scene gezet
Maar deze nacht met jou is levensecht


Het is een nacht, die je normaal alleen in films ziet
Het is een nacht, die wordt bezongen in het mooiste lied
Het is een nacht waarvan ik dacht dat ik hem nooit beleven zou
Maar vannacht beleef ik hem met jou


En ik hou alleen nog maar van jou
En ik hou alleen nog maar van jou




Translation: Guus Meeuwis - It's A Night

You ask if I feel like having a sigaret
It's 2 at night, we're lying on a bed
In a hotel in a city where nobody hears us
Where nobody knows us and nobody bothers us
On the floor there's an empty bottle of wine
And clothes that could be yours or mine
A shimmer, the radio soft, and this night has everything
I expect a night to have

It's a night, which you normally only see in movies
It's a night, that gets described in the sweetest song
It's a night of which I thought I'd never see it
But tonight I'm living it with you

I'm still awake and I look at the ceiling
And I think about how the day started a long time ago
The just leaving with you
Not knowing where our journey would end
Now I'm lying here in an unfamiliar city
And I've just had the night of my life
But alas there is already some light falling through windows
Even though the world stood still for us

It's a night, which you normally only see in movies
It's a night, that gets described in the sweetest song
It's a night of which I thought I'd never see it
But tonight I'm living it with you

But a song is only a bunch of words
A movie is written out
But this night with you was real

It's a night, which you normally only see in movies
It's a night, that gets described in the sweetest song
It's a night of which I thought I'd never see it
But tonight I'm living it with you

And all that is left for me to love is you
And all that is left for me to love is you

RŲyksopp- Remind Me



It's only been a week
the rush of being home and rapid fading
Failing to recall
when I was missing all that time in England

Has sent me aimlessly
on foot or by the help of transportation
to knock on windows where
a friend no longer live, I had forgotten

and everywhere I go
there's always something to remind me
of another place and time
of a love that travelled far and found me

We stayed outside till two
waiting for the light to come back
we didn't talk I knew
until you asked what I was thinking
until you asked what I was thinking

brave men tell the truth
the wise man's tools are analogies and puzzles
a woman holds her tongue
knowing silence will speak for her

brave men tell the truth
the wise man's tools are analogies and puzzles
a woman holds her tongue
knowing silence will speak for her

and everywhere I go
there's always something to remind me
of another place and time
of a love that travelled far and found me

  I've posted these lyrics on this forum before, but what the hell, right? Because its one of my favourite songs.

Gigi D'Agostino- L'amour toujours


I still believe in your eyes
I just don't care what you've done in your life
Baby I'll always be here by your side
Don't leave me waiting too long, please come by

I-I-I-I still believe in your eyes
There is no choice, I belong to your life
Because I will live to love you someday
You'll be my baby and we'll fly away

And i'll fly with you-ou
I'll fly with you-ou-ou
I'll fly with you-ou-ou-ou

I'll fly with you
I'll fly with you
I'll fly with you

Every day and every night
I always dream that you are by my side

Oh, baby, every day and every night
Well I said everything's gonna be alright

And i'll fly with you-ou-ou
I'll fly with you-ou-ou-ou
I'll fly with you-ou-ou-ou-ou

The Smithereens- A Girl Like You



I used to travel in the shadows
And I never found the nerve to try and walk up to you
But now I am a man and I know that there's no time to waste
There's too much to lose
Girl you say anything at all, and you know that you can call
And I'll be right there for you
First love, heartbreak, tough luck, big mistake
What else can you do

CHORUS
I'll say anything you want to hear
I'll see everything through
I'll do anything I have to do
Just to win the love of a girl like you, a girl like you

People talk and people stare, tell them I don't really care
This is the place I should be
And if they think it's really straange for a girl like you
To be in love with someone like me
I wanna tell them all to go to hell
That we're doing very well without them you see
That's just the way it is and they will see
I am yours and you are mine the way it should be

CHORUS

Now if I seem a little wild, there's no holding back
I'm trying to get a message to you
I won't take anything from anyone
I won't walk and I won't run, I believe in you
London, Washington, anywhere you are I'll run
Together we'll be
Inside, outside, got my pride
I won't let him take you from me



Have you guys heard this song? It is great, I love it. I love The Smithereens altogether, as a matter of fact.

David Gray- This Years Love



This years love had better last
Heaven knows itís high time
And Iíve been waiting on my own too long
But when you hold me like you do
It feels so right
I start to forget
How my heart gets torn
When that hurt gets thrown
Feeling like you canít go on

Turning circles when time again
It cuts like a knife oh yeah
If you love me got to know for sure
Cos it takes something more this time
Than sweet sweet lies
Before I open up my arms and fall
Losing all control
Every dream inside my soul
And when you kiss me
On that midnight street
Sweep me off my feet
Singing ainít this life so sweet

This years love had better last
This years love had better last

So whose to worry
If our hearts get torn
When that hurt gets thrown
Donít you know this life goes on
And wonít you kiss me
On that midnight street
Sweep me off my feet
Singing ainít this life so sweet

This years love had better last
This years love had better last
This years love had better last
This years love had better last

  I couldn't find the exact lyrics for the song I had, though I could find lyrics for several very similar songs, but they had some differences. So I typed it out as I heard it. A few words might be different than what they really are but I had a hard time understanding them.


Mountaind Dew- by I have no idea who it is by. There are a billion different versions of this song.

Down the road here from me, theres an ol' holler tree where you lay down a dollar or two, go on 'round the bend and come back again, theres a jug full o' that good ol' mountain dew

Oh they call it that good ol' mountain dew, and them that refuse it are few. I'll hush up my mug, if you fill up my jug with that good ol' mountain dew


Now Mr. Roosevelt told 'em just how he felt when he heard that the drought had gone through. If your liqours too red, it'll swell up your head, better stick to that good ol' mountain dew.


Oh they call it that goodl ol' mountain dew, and them that refuse it are few, I'll hush up my mug if you fill up my jug with that good ol' mountain dew.


The preacher rode by with his head hoisted high, said his wife had been down with the flu. He thought that I ort, to sell him a quart of that good ol' mountain dew


Oh they call it that good 'ol mountain dew, and them that refuse it are few, I'll hush up my mug if you fill up my jug with that good 'ol mountain dew


Well my Uncle Mort, hes sawed off and short, he measures four feet two, but he feels like a giant when you give him a pint of that good ol' mountain dew.

Oh they call it that good ol' mountain dew, and them that refuse it are few, I'll hush up my mug if you fill up my jug with that good ol' mountain dew.
