Lyrics - Quotes





The snow might fall and write the lines on the silent page
But you're outside making permanent love to the nuclear age
Two silhouettes by the cash machine make a lover's dance
It's a tango for the lonely wives of the business class

Suede
The 2 of Us, Dog Man Star






And it's a shame the plane is leaving on this sunny day
Cos on you my tattoo will be bleeding and the name will stain

Suede
The Wild Ones (Dog Man Star)






Cry baby cry
Cry cry to heaven
Storm the castle
Stem the tide
Rise above yourself
Cry baby cry
Cry cry to heaven
If that doesn't do it for you
Go ahead and cry like hell

Meat Loaf
Bat Out Of Hell 3, The Monster Is Loose






Isabell, she treads so lightly, floating in her gipsy dresses
Even as her words cut deep, I caníŽt deny the truth in them
On the phone, she talks a lot, and me, I listen hopelessly
So directionless, I head into oblivion


And then I decide to give another random memory
To remind her of the first time we sang out to the sea
Oh Isabell, you always understood me
Please Isabell, forgive me now

Ben Jelen
Falling Down






You talk about the world like it's someplace that you've been.

Goo Goo Dolls
Broadway






So much to do, so much to see.
So what's wrong with taking the backstreets?
You'll never know if you don't go.
You'll never shine if you don't glow.

Smash Mouth
All Star






I'd give away my soul
To hold you once again

Josh Groban
Broken Vow






They're selling razor blades and mirrors in the street
Pray that when I'm coming down you'll be alseep
If I ever hurt you your revenge will be so sweet
Because I'm scum
And I'm your son
I come undone

Robbie Williams
Come Undone, Escapology






We grew up way too fast, now there's nothing to believe,
and re-runs all become our history.
A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio,
and I won't tell no one your name.

Goo Goo Dolls
Name

(contributed by Stuart G.)






Come on, come on, come on, what you gonna do with your life?
Come on, come on, come on, chasing sparks in the night
His old man said tomorrow is a ride that goes nowhere
But I'll pull some strings, get blackbird wings
And break us out of here

Bon Jovi
Joey
Bounce






Time expands and then contracts
When you are spinning in the grip of someone
Who is not an ordinary girl

Counting Crows
Hard Candy






I still recall the taste of your tears
Echoing your voice just like the ringing in my ears
My favorite dreams of you still wash ashore
Scraping through my head 'til I don't want to sleep anymore

Nine Inch Nails
Something I Can Never Have, Pretty Hate Machine






Maybe tomorrow is counting on me
To learn my lessons today
I'll start by taking a step at a time
And stop throwing my blessings away

I'll get myself up and I'll brush myself off
And take back some of the pride that I've lost
'Cause you can't always keep your feet on the ground
I guess we all learn the hard way and we all fall down

Bekka Bramlett
We All Fall Down






I remember how beautiful it was to fall asleep on your couch and cry in front of you for the first time.
You were the best platform from which to jump beyond myself.
What was wrong with me?

Alanis Morisette
Unsent
Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie






And it's so hot outside
And the air is so sweet
And when the pressure drop is heavy I don't wanna hear you speak
You know most killing is committed at 90 degrees
When it's too hot to breathe
And it's too hot to think

Boomtown Rats
Someone's Looking At You, The Fine Art of Surfacing






Some days it don't come easy
Some days it don't come hard
Some days it don't come at all
And these are the days that never end

Meat Loaf
I'd Do Anything For Love
Bat Out Of Hell ll






If you open your mind for me
You won't rely on open eyes to see
The walls you built within
Come tumbling down and a new world will begin
Living twice at once you learn
You're safe from pain in the dream domain
A soul set free to fly
A round trip journey in your head
Master of illusion, can you realize
Your dream's alive, you can be the guide but...

Queensryche
Silent Lucidity
Empire






Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say I love you, right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I've looked at life that way.

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Something's lost, but something's gained
In living every day

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose, and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

Both Sides Now

Joni Mitchell






The deeper I spin
The hunter will sin ... for your ivory skin ...
Took a drive in the dirty rain
To a place where the wind calls your name
Under the trees the river laughing
At you and me ...
Halluijah, heavens white rose
The doors you open
I just can't close

U2
Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses?
Achtung Baby






So many years come and gone
And yet the memory is strong
One word we never could learn
Good-bye
True love is frozen in time
I'll be your champion and you'll be mine
I will remember you

Amy Grant
I Will Remember You
Heart in Motion






You are pure, you are snow
We are the useless sluts that they mould
Rock n' roll is our epiphany
Culture, boredom, alienation and despair

Manic Street Preachers
Little Baby Nothing
Generation Terrorists






But you know you got to stick to your guns
When it all comes down
Cause sometimes you can't choose
It's like heads they win
Tails you're gonna lose

Poison
Fallen Angel
Open Up and Say Ahh...






Sometimes I've been to cryin' for unborn children
That might have made me complete
But I, I took the sweet life and never knew I'd be bitter from the sweet
I spent my life exploring the subtle whoring that cost too much to be free
Hey lady, I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me

Maureen McGovern
I've Never Been To Me






Too late my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine body's aching all the time
Goodbye ev'rybody I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mama ooh I don't want to die
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all
. . .
Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters
Nothing really matters to me
Any way the wind blows

Queen
Bohemian Rhapsody






Circus life
Under the big top world
We all need the clowns
To make us smile
Through space and time
Always another show
Wondering where I am
Lost without you

Journey
Faithfully






Heaven can wait, we're only watching the skies
Hoping for the best
But expecting the worst
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?
. . .
It's so hard to get old without a cause
I don't want to perish like fading horse
Youth's like diamonds in the sun
And diamonds are forever

So many adventures couldn't happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
We'll let them come true

Alphaville
Forever Young
Forever Young






Now it almost seems incredible
We've laughed too loud, and woke up everyone
I may be wrong, but I thought we said
It couldn't happen here

Pet Shop Boys
It Couldn't Happen Here
Actually






Oh - once in your life you find someone
Who will turn your world around
Bring you up when you're feelin' down

Ya - nothin' could change what you mean to me
Oh there's lots that I could say
But just hold me now
Cause our love will light the way

Bryan Adams
Heaven






How I love the way you move
And the sparkle in your eyes
There's a color deep inside them
Like a blue suburban sky

When I come home late at night
And you're in bed asleep
I wrap my arms around you
So I can feel you breathe

I don't need to be a superman
As long as you will always be my biggest fan

Warrant
Heaven
Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich






I wonder why I feel so high
Though I am not above the sorrow
Heavy hearted
Till you call my name
And it sounds like church bells
Or the whistle of a train
On a summer evening
I'll run to meet you
Barefoot barely breathing

Sophie B. Hawkins
As I Lay Me Down
Whaler






And then the bullhorn crackles,
And the captain tackles,
With the problems and the how's and why's
And he can see no reasons
Cos there are no reasons
What reason do you need to die?

Tell me why I don't like Mondays
Tell me why I don't like Mondays
Tell me why I don't like Mondays
I wanna shoo-oo-oo-oo - oo - oot
The whole day down.

The Boomtown Rats
I Don't Like Mondays






Stalking in the shadows by the light of the moon
It's like a prison and the night is a cell
Going anywhere has gotta be heaven tonight
Cause staying here has gotta be hell
Dying in the city like a fire on the water
Let's go runnin' on the back of the wind
There's gotta be some action on the face of the earth
And I've gotta see your face once again

And I don't know where I ever got the bright idea that I was cool
So alone and independent
But I'm depending on you now
And you'll always be the only thing that I just can't be without
And I'm out for you tonight
I'm coming out for you tonight

Fire Inc.
Nowhere Fast
Streets of Fire soundtrack






Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance
Why can't we give love that one more chance
Why can't we give love
Cause love's such an old fashioned word
and love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure

Queen
Under Pressure






I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
And if I had to walk the world, I'd make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will

When In Rome
The Promise






Lying smiling in the dark
Shooting stars around your heart
Dreams come bouncing in your head
Pure and simple everytime
Now you're crying in your sleep
I wish you'd never learnt to weep
Don't sell the dreams you should be keeping
Pure and simple everytime

Look at me with starry eyes
Push me up to starry skies
There's stardust in my head
Pure and simple everytime
Fresh and deep as oceans new
Shiver at the sight of you
I'll sing a softer tune
Pure and simple over you

The Lightning Seeds
Pure
Cloud Cuckoo Land






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 s'posed to be

Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers, and me

Kermit the Frog

It was always summer and the future called
We were ready for adventure and we wanted them all
And there was so much left to dream
And so much time to make it real

Jimmy shoes busted both his legs, trying to learn to fly
From a second story window, he just jumped and closed his eyes
His mamma said he was crazy - he said, "Mamma I've got to try"
Don't you know that all my heroes died
And I guess I'd rather die than fade away

Bon Jovi
These Days
These Days






Pray for the other ones
At Christmastime it's hard, but when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you

Bob Geldof and Midge Ure
Do They Know It's Christmas?






Now - while the leaves still dance on the wind
While the moon and the clouds come spinning
Will you whisper my name again?
Again and again and again

So come to me when I'm asleep
We'll cross the lines and dance upon the streets
. . .
Oh turn around and I'll be there
There's a scar right through my heart but I'll bear it again
Oh I thought we were the human race
But we were just another borderline case
And the stars reach down and tell us there's always one escape

Spandau Ballet
Through the Barricades






I don't want to start any blasphemous rumours
But I think that God has a sick sense of humour
And when I die I expect to find him laughing

Blasphemous Rumours






When she cries at night
And she doesn't think that I can hear her
She tries to hide
All the fear she feels inside
So I pray this time
I can be the man that she deserves
Cause I die a little each time when she cries

Restless Heart
When She Cries
Big Iron Horses






What are these voices outside love's open door
Make us throw off our contentment, and beg for something more?

I'm learning to live without you now
But I miss you sometimes
The more I know, the less I understand
All the things I thought I knew, I'm learning again

Don Henley
The Heart of the Matter
The End of The Innocence






Hey there's not a cloud in the sky
It's as blue as your goodbye
And I thought that it would rain
On a day like today
Hey there's not a cloud in sight
It's as blue as your blue goodbye
And I thought that it would rain
The day you went away

He's on the buses and the aeroplanes
With some groceries and a sleeping bag

Lost in Static 18
And the storm is closing in now
Automatic 18 - Got to push through - Trapped in living hell

You're a prisoner of the dark sky
The propeller blades are still
And the evil eye of the hurricane's
Coming in now for the kill

Mike Oldfield

5 Miles Out






For all things turn to barenness
In the dim glass the demons hold
The glass of outer weariness
Made when God slept in times of old

Loreena McKennitt
The Two Trees
The Mask & Mirror






Let us try to live our lost illusions
They're the sun at night
If we don't we'll never taste
The spice of life

And when it seems that we're in a dead end street
There's no reason to cry
Cause we have a helping hand who's always aside
Forever light

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.

I Dreamed A Dream
Les Miserables






Let's all meet up in the year 2000
Won't it be strange what we're all fully grown?
Be there 2 o'clock by the fountain down the road
I never knew that you'd get married
I would be living down here on my own
On that damp and lonely Thursday years ago
