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...

Silent Lucidity

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

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
True love is frozen in time
I'll be your champion and you'll be mine
I will remember you

I Will Remember You
Amy Grant
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

Little Baby Nothing
Manic Street Preachers
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

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

I've Never Been To Me
Maureen McGovern

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

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


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

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

It Couldn't Happen Here
Pet Shop Boys

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

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

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

As I Lay Me Down
Sophie B. Hawkins

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.

I Don't Like Mondays
The Boomtown Rats

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

Nowhere Fast
Fire Inc.
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

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

The Promise
When In Rome

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
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

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

Objects In The Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are
Meat Loaf
Bat Out of Hell 2

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

These Days
Bon Jovi
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

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

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

Hold An Old Friend's Hand
Hold An Old Friend's Hand

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

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

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

When She Cries
Restless Heart
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

The Heart of the Matter
Don Henley
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

The Day You Went Away
Wendy Matthews

Lost in Static 18

The propeller blades are still
And the evil eye of the hurricane's

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

There's no reason to cry
Cause we have a helping hand who's always aside
Forever light

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

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

Disco 2000
Different Class

I wanna ride on the crest of sensation
I wanna scream in the whirlpools of love
I wanna drown in a climax of thunder
I wanna be with the fools in the storm

Do what you want and then die when you want to
We're gonna walk on the blood of the meek
We're gonna sail through the oceans of wonder
We're gonna live in the dream that we seek

Ascension Day

We'll crucify the insincere tonight
We'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight
We'll find a way to offer up the night tonight
The indescribable moments of your life tonight
The impossible is possible tonight
Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight

Down where the walls come crashing
Down where the proudest fall
Down where those fools come rushing in
To where they fell before
Down where the age has passed me
I will be sure
You will be there and I will belong
To me and my foolish heart

Foolish Heart

Oh whatever makes her happy on a Saturday night
Oh whatever makes her happy, whatever makes it alright

We'll go to peepshows and freak shows
We'll go to discos, casinos
We'll go where people and let go...
Oh whatever makes her happy

Saturday Night
Coming Up

(I don't know why but this song makes me cry)

I thought I could live in your world
As years all went by
With all the voices I've heard
Something has died
And when you're in need of someone
My heart won't deny you
So many seem so lonely
With no one left to cry to baby

Don't Cry (alt. lyrics)
Guns N Roses
Use Your Illusion 2

I never thought you'd hurt me
I guess you live and learn
That when you're playing with fire you're bound to get burned
I've been mistreated, I've been used before
I get kicked in the face, still I come back for more

Don't Treat Me Bad

Sometimes you laugh sometimes you cry
And yes, I've cried over you
You've left me blind in paradise
You've left me hungering for the touch of you
Snow white angels run and hide
In the blackness of the night

Never is a long time...

Never Is A Long Time

Where joy should reign
These skies restrain
Shadow your love
The voice trails off again

Stay On These Roads
Stay On These Roads

Daylight fading
Come and waste another year
All the anger and the eloquence are bleeding into fear
Moonlight creeping around the corners of our lawn
When we see the early signs that daylight's fading
We leave just before it's gone

Daylight Fading
Counting Crows
Recovering The Satellites

Feel the breeze?
Time's so near you can almost taste the freedom
There's a warm wind from the south
Hoist the sail and we'll be gone
By morning this will all seem like dream
And if I don't return to sing the song
Maybe just as well
I've seen the news and there's
Not much I can't do ... alone

Anybody Listening?

I hear pounding feet in the streets below
And the women crying and the children know
That there's something wrong
And it's hard to believe that love will prevail

Oh it won't rain all the time
The sky won't fall forever
And though the night seems long
Your tears won't fall forever

It Can't Rain All The Time
Jane Siberry
The Crow soundtrack

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 I'd known I'd never find

Can't Fight This Feeling
REO Speedwagon

I was living for a dream, loving for a moment
Taking on the world, that was just my style
Then I touched your hand, I could hear you whisper
The search is over, love was right before my eyes

The Search Is Over

Morning has come, another day
I must pack my bags and say goodbye...

Hands To Heaven

I saw you dancing out the ocean
Running fast along the sand
A spirit born of earth and water
Fire flying from your hands

The One
Elton John

Don't be alarmed, no don't be concerned
I don't want to change things
Leave them just as they were
I mean, nothing's really different
It's me who feels strange
I'm always lost for words
When someone mentions your name
I know that I'll get over this for sure
I'm not the type who dreams there could be more

You Were There
Southern Sons
Nothing But The Truth

Dreams last so long
Even after you're gone
I know you love me
And soon you will see
You were meant for me
And I was meant for you

Go about my business, I'm doing fine
Besides, what would I say if I had you on the line
Same old story, not much to say
Hearts are broken every day

I'm half alive but I feel mostly dead
I try to tell myself it'll be all right
I just shouldn't think anymore tonight

You Were Meant For Me
Pieces of You

Every night I say a prayer in the hopes that there's a heaven
Everyday I'm more confused, as the saints turn into sinners
All the heroes and legends I knew as a child have turned into idols of clay
And I feel this empty place inside, so afraid that I've lost my way

Show Me The Way
Edge of a Century

Time has stopped before us
The sky cannot ignore us
No one can separate us
For we are all that is left
The echo bounces off me
The shadows lost beside me
There's no more need to protest
Cause now the end begins to end

The Beginning Is The End Is The Beginning
The Smashing Pumpkins
Batman & Robin soundtrack

Tequila in his heartbeat, his veins burnt gasoline
It kept his motor running, but it never kept him clean
They say he loved adventure, Ricky's the wild one
He married trouble had a courtship with a gun

Bang, bang, shoot 'em up, the party never ends
You can't think of dying when that bottle's your best friend

"Accidents will happen," they all heard Ricky say
He fired his six-shot to the wind
That child blew a child away

18 And Life
Skid Row

O' beautiful for spacious skies
But now those skies are threatening
They're beating plowshares into swords
For this tired old man that we elected king
Armchair warriors often fail
And we've been poisoned by these fairy tales
The lawyers clean up all details
Since daddy had to lie

But I know a place where we can go
And wash away this sin
We'll sit and watch the clouds roll by
And the tall grass wave in the wind
Just lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair spill all around me
Offer up your best defence
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence

The End of The Innocence
Don Henley
The End of The Innocence

I know what it's like to be forgotten
Left alone with your simple dreams
But even dreams are fading fast
No one to turn to when you can't sleep at night
Waking up to another day that will soon be over
And if you think that time has forgotten you
Well just look into my eyes
And know the times we'll change

Now Bobby, he's an uptown lawyer
Danny, he's a medicine man
And me, I'm just a singer in a long haired rock 'n roll band
Through the years and miles between us
It's been a long and lonely ride
But if I get a call in the dead of the night
I'd be right by your side

Blood on blood

Blood On Blood

There is an answer, some day we will know
And you will ask her, why she had to go
We live and die, we laugh and we cry
You must take away the pain
Before you can begin to live again

Carry Me (Like A Fire In Your Heart)
Chris De Burgh

Is there no sight of light as we stare in the darkness?
Watching the sun arise
Is there no sign of life as we gaze at the waters?
Into the strangers eyes
. . .
Through all the doubt somehow they knew
And stone by stone they built it high
Until the sun broke through
A ray of hope a shining light Ammonia Avenue

Ammonia Avenue
The Alan Parsons Project

Everytime I see you, well the rays of the sun are all
Streaming through the waves in your hair
And every star in the sky is taking aim at your eyes like a spotlight
The beating of my heart is a drum and it's lost
And it's looking for a rhythm like you
You can take the darkness from the deep of the night
And turn it to a beacon burning endlessly bright
I gotta follow it cause everything I know
Well, it's nothing til I give it to you

Making Love Out Of Nothing At All

Have you ever needed someone so bad?
Have you ever wanted someone you just couldn't have?
Did you ever tried so hard
But your world just fall apart
Have you ever needed someone so bad?

Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad?
Def Leppard

(by the request of my goodman Alex)

Step out the front door like a ghost
Into the fog where no one notices
The contrast of white on white
In between the moon and you
Angels get a better view
Of the crumbling difference between wrong and right

I walk in the air between the rain
Through myself and back again
Where? I don't know

Round Here
Counting Crows
August And Everything After

Don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me

Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me
George Michael & Elton John

This is my heart bleeding before you
This is me down on my knees
These foolish games are tearing me apart
And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart

Excuse me, think I've mistaken you for somebody else
Somebody who gave a damn
Somebody more like myself

Foolish Games
Pieces Of You

I wonder now which way to face
I gather vision of this place
Did we understand
The footsteps in the sand?

Broken Pieces

The hopes we had were much too high
Way out of reach but we had to try
No need to hide, no need to run
Cause all the answers come one by one
The game will never be over
Because we're keeping the dream alive

Keeping The Dream Alive

Thinking, long ago when we were young and free
Love happened easily
And dreams never died, life sung a pretty song
Cause I just can't stand the thought of life without you
Love happened suddenly
We couldn't see where we going wrong
Now those days are gone

Now Those Days Are Gone

I am feathered by the moonlight

August And Everything After

It's morning when I go to sleep
In the distant dawn a church bell rings
Another day is coming on
A baby's born, an old man dies
Somewhere young lovers kiss good-bye
I leave my soul and just move on
And wish that I was there to sing this song

Midnight In Chelsea
Jon Bon Jovi
Destination Anywhere

Listen, there's a foghorn blowing
From the coast tonight
Remember making love in the rain?
Strange how laughter looks like crying with no sound
Raindrops taste like tears, without the pain

Another Rainy Night Without You

We've had our share of hard times
But that's the price we paid
And through it all we kept the promise that we made
I swear you'll never be lonely

Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
Washed away a dream of you
But nothing else could ever take you away
'Cause you'll always be my dream come true
Oh my darling, I love you

I Remember You
Skid Row

Everyday I wake up
I thank God that you are still a part of me
We've opened up the door to which
So many people never find the key
And if the sun should ever fail to send its light
We will burn a thousand candles
And make everything alright

I Saw Red
Cherry Pie

I'll be walking the streets tonight
Just trying to get it right
It's hard to see with so many around
You know I don't like being stuck in the crowd
And the streets don't change but maybe their names
I ain't got time for the game cause I need you ... this time

Guns N' Roses

Intransigence is all around... military still in town
Armour plated suits and ties... daddy just won't say goodbye
Referee won't blow the whistle
God is good but will HE listen
I'm nearly great
But there's something I'm missing I left in the duty free
Though you never really belonged to me

Staring At The Sun

If you can give it, I can take it
'Cause if this heart is gonna break it's gonna take a lot to break it
I know tonight, somebody's gonna win the fight
So if you're so tough, come on and prove it
Your heart is down for the count and you know you're gonna lose it
Tonight you're gonna go down in flames
Just like Jesse James

Just Like Jesse James

And for a moment I lose myself
Wrapped up in the pleasures of the world
I've journeyed here and there and back again
But in the same old haunts I still find my friends
Mysteries not ready to reveal
Sympathies I'm ready to return
I'll make the effort, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth
Tomorrow's just an excuse
And you can make it last, forever you
You can make it last, forever you

Sowing the Seeds of Love
Tears for Fears

I held you for a moment in my hands
The moment with you slipped away like sand
Through my fingers now
In front of me a choice I have to make
To carry on or simply fade away
I lose you either way
I'd like to say that it was easy
It was hard
To say goodbye
I thought that I would die

Letting go of you
Was so hard to do
And I thought that it would kill me but I made it through somehow
And I'm so much stronger now

Stronger Now

I never thought that I would reach you
Feels like this road has been going on for miles
Don't have to write or even see you
'cause there's a light, burning on the inside.

Still, time and time again
We're looking for the love
The one that can inspire

Lift me higher, high as heaven can be
Our love is super love, fly robin fly
Wherever you are, saint or sinner be strong (sono luminus)
Lift me higher, high as heaven can be
Our love is super love, (burn baby burn)

Love Song For A Vampire
Annie Lennox

Well you wave your hand and they scatter like crows
They have nothing that will ever capture your heart
They're just thorns without the rose
Be careful of them in the dark
Oh, if I was the one you chose to be your only one
Oh baby can't you hear me now, can't you hear me now

Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
Every night it's just the same, you leave me lonely now

And a song will bring you near to me a Stóirín a Grá

Lift The Wings

...and like a fool who will never see the truth
I keep thinking something's gonna change

There's a danger in loving somebody too much

These glory days can take their toll, so catch me now, before I turn to gold
Yeah we'd love to hear your story just as long as it tells where where we are -
that where we are is where we're meant to be
Oh come on - make it up yourself - you don't need anybody else
And I promise I won't sell these days to anybody else in the world but you.
No-one but you

Glory Days
This Is Hardcore

The sweetest song is silence that I've never heard
Funny how your feet in dreams never touch the earth
In a wood full of princes, freedom is a kiss
But the prince hides his face
From dreams in the mist

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
Every moment I'm awake the further I'm away

These Dreams

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you
But I don't know how

What's The Story Morning Glory

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

So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf of good health and good time
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

Good Riddance (Time of your Life)

Cos everytime I seem to fall in love
Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the heart but then I hit the wall
Crash! Boom! Bang!

Crash! Boom! Bang!
Crash! Boom! Bang!

Oh my love, it's you that I dream of
Oh my love, since that day
Somewhere in my heart I'm always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

It's the heart that's afraid of breaking that never learns to dance
It's the dream that's afraid of waking that never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken who cannot seem to give
And the soul that's afraid of dying that never learns to live

The Rose

I remember when we could sleep on stones
Now we lie together in whispers and moans
When I was all messed up
And I heard opera in my head
Your love was a light bulb
Hanging over my bed

Baby Baby Baby light my way

Ultra Violet (Light My Way)
Achtung Baby

I wish I could just make you turn around, turn around and see me cry
There's so much I need to say to you, so many reasons why
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, 'cos there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face
Take a look at me now, 'cos there's just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against all odds and that's what I've got to face

Against All Odds
Phil Collins

When you're standing in deep water
And you're bailing yourself out with a straw
And when you're drowning in deep water
And you wake up making love to a wall
Well it's these little time that help to remind
It's nothing without love, love, love

Deep Water

For they told you life is hard
Misery from the start,
It's dull, it's slow, it's painful
But I tell you life is sweet
In spite of the misery
There's so much more, be grateful
So, who will you believe
Who will you listen to
Who will it be
'Cause it's high time that you decide
It's time to make up your own
Your own state of mind

Oh they told you life is long
Be thankful when it's done
Don't ask for more, be grateful
But I tell you life is short
Be thankful because
Before you know it
It will be over
'Cause life is sweet, life is also very short

Life is Sweet
Natalie Merchant

We couldn't all be cowboys
So some of us are clowns
I hope that everybody can find a little flame
Me, I say my prayers and I just light myself on fire
And I walk out on the wire once again

Goodnight Elisabeth
Counting Crows
Recovering The Satellites

Chances thrown
Nothing's free
Longing for what used to be
Still it's hard
Hard to see
Fragile lives, shattered dreams

The Kids Aren't Alright
The Offspring

Who's gonna pick you up when you fall?
Who's gonna hang it up when you call?
Who's gonna pay attention to your dreams?
Who's gonna plug your ears when you scream?

You can't go on think nothing's wrong
Who's gonna drive you home tonight?

The Cars
Heartbeat City

Already I'm so lonesome I could die.

So kiss me and smile for me,
Tell me that you'll wait for me,
Hold me like you'll never let me go.
'Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane,
Don't know when I'll be back again,
Oh, babe, I hate to go.

Leaving on a Jet Plane
John Denver
Rhymes and Reason

If you were an angel
I would cut off your wings
To keep you with me.


I drive by the homeless sleeping on a cold dark street
Like bodies in an open grave
Underneath the broken old neon sign
That used to read JESUS SAVES

A mile away live the rich folks
And I see how they're living it up
While the poor they eat from hand to mouth
The rich is drinkin' from a golden cup

And it just makes me wonder
Why so many lose, so few win

Sometimes I wish I didn't know now the things I didn't know then

Something To Believe In
Flesh and Blood

We spin a world from cruel to kind
And make our futures a downward slide
The strong get strong but still want more
But day by day, the giants thaw.

Tomorrow must be calling with an open door
There's no one left to start a revolution anymore
We need some flames
To burn down every door

Bound in a Nutshell
The Lightning Seeds
Cloud Cuckoo Land

Watch the early morning sun
Drip like blood from the day
See the pretty people run
So many games to play
See the blue suburban dream
Under the jet plane sky
Sleep away and dream a dream
Life is just a lullaby

Everything Will Flow
Head Music

Oh Jesse, paint you pictures, 'bout how it's gonna be.
By now I should know better, your dreams are never free.
But tell me all about, our little trailer by the sea.
Oh Jesse, you can always sell any dream to me.

Joshua Kadison

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, why can't it be mine

Pearl Jam

Well, I am an idiot walking a tightrope of fortune and fame
I am an acrobat swinging trapezes through circles of flame
If you've never stared off in the distance, then your life is a shame
And though I'll never forget you face
sometimes I can't remember my name

Mrs. Potter's Lullaby
Counting Crows
This Desert Life

So you scream from behind your door, say what's mine is mine, and not yours
I may have too much, but I'll take my chances
Cause God's stopped keeping score
And you cling to the things they sold you
Didn't you cover your eyes when they told you that he can't come back
Cause he has no children to come back for

It so hard to learn, there's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope when there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too late
So maybe we should all be praying for time

Praying For Time
George Michael
Listen Without Prejudice

So tired of this straight line, and everywhere you turn
There's vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting, you keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack.
It don't make no difference, escaping one last time
It's easier to believe
In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees.

Sarah McLachlan

A man is an island, but the water is deep
And the shore on the other side is ragged and steep

To look for perfection is a lonely old ride
It takes a whole lot of courage and a whole lot of pride

When you look for independence and you get what you want
How come you look back, thinking what have I done?

But time and again, it dawns on me
It's the price we pay for liberty
I should have know, we all need a place to call home

A Place To Call Home
Joey Tempest
A Place To Call Home

Well, there ain't no luck in these loaded dice
But baby if you give me just one more try
We can pack up our old dreams and our old lives
We'll find a place where the sun still shines

Bon Jovi

There was a hole inside his soul a manicure could not fill
So he found himself a whore to love while daisies choked in the window sill.

Innocence Maintained

It's my life, It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life

It's My Life
Bon Jovi

And I don't want the world to see me,
Cause I don't think that they'd understand,
When everything's made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am.

Goo Goo Dolls

Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken, your best friend always sticking up for you even when I know you're wrong.
Can you imagine no first dance, freeze-dried romance, five hour phone conversation, the best soy latte that you ever had... and me

Drops of Jupiter

The space between, the bullets in our fire-fight
Is where I'll be hiding waiting for you
The rain that falls splashed in your heart
Ran like sadness down the windows into your room.

Dave Matthews Band
The Space Between

I wish I was a girl so that you could believe me
And I could shake this static everytime I try to sleep
I wish for all the world that I could say
'Hey Elizabeth, you know, I'm doing all right these days."

But I can't sleep at night.

I Wish I Was A Girl
Counting Crows
This Desert Life

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to guide them along
So maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares, and go

Downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown, don't wait a minute more
Downtown, everything's waiting for you
