Lyrics of the Songs You Love

Have you been stunned by the lyric of a song? I'll start with my favorite Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John - Norah

What a waste, I could've been your lover
What a waste, I could've been your friend
Perfect love is like a blossom that fades so quick
When it's blowing up a storm in May

Travel south until your skin turns warmer
Travel south until your skin turns brown
Put a language in your head and get on a train
And then come back to the one you love

Yeah you're great, you're just part, of this lifetime of dreaming
That extends to the heart of this long summer feeling
Quiet night, you see the TVs glowing
Quiet night, you hear the walls are awake

Me and you are getting out of the party crowd
Can I see what's underneath your bed?
Can I stay until the milkman's working?
Can I stay until the café awakes?

Do you hate me in the light?
Did you get a fright
When you looked across from where you lay?

Yeah you're great, you're just part, of this lifetime of dreaming
That extends to the heart of this long summer feeling
All the history of boys I invent in my head
Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John

All the history of boys I invent in my head
Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John

What a waste, I could've been your lover
What a waste, I could've been your friend

Re: Lyrics of the Songs You Love

This song is just six words long
This song is just six words long
This song is just six words long
This song is just six words long

Couldn't think of any lyrics
No I never wrote the lyrics
So I'll just sing any old lyrics
That come to mind, child

You really need words
Whole lotta rhyming words
You gotta rhyme so many words, mm-mm
To do it, to do it, to do it, to do it
To do it, to do it right, child

This song is just six words long
This song is just six words long
This song is just six words long
This song is just six words long

I know that you're probably sore
'Cause I didn't write any more
I just didn't get to complete it
So that's why I gotta repeat it

This song is just six words long (six words long)
This song is just six words long (six words long)

Oh I make a lotta money
They pay me a ton of money
They're payin' me plenty of money
To sing this song, child

I gotta fill time
Three minutes worth of time
Oh, how will I fill so much time, mm-mm
I'll throw in a solo, a solo, a solo
A solo, a solo here

This song is just six words long
This song is just six words long
This song is just six words long
This song is just six words long

This song's got nothin' to say
But I'm recording it anyway
I know if I put my mind to it
I know I could find a good rhyme here

Oh, you gotta have-a music
You need really catchy music
This song has got plenty of music
But just six words, child

And so I'll sing' em over
And over and over and over
And over and over and over, mm-mm
And over and over and over
And over and over and over again

Six words long, six words long
Six words long, six words long
Six words long, six words long

This song is just six words long
It's just six words long

Tom Waits - Step Right Up

Step right up, step right up, step right up,
Everyone's a winner, bargains galore
That's right, you too can be the proud owner
Of the quality goes in before the name goes on
One-tenth of a dollar, one-tenth of a dollar, we got service after sales
You need perfume? we got perfume, how 'bout an engagement ring?
Something for the little lady, something for the little lady,
Something for the little lady, hmm
Three for a dollar
We got a year-end clearance, we got a white sale
And a smoke-damaged furniture, you can drive it away today
Act now, act now, and receive as our gift, our gift to you
They come in all colors, one size fits all
No muss, no fuss, no spills, you're tired of kitchen drudgery
Everything must go, going out of business, going out of business
Going out of business sale
Fifty percent off original retail price, skip the middle man
Don't settle for less
How do we do it? how do we do it? volume, volume, turn up the volume
Now you've heard it advertised, don't hesitate
Don't be caught with your drawers down,
Don't be caught with your drawers down
You can step right up, step right up

That's right, it filets, it chops, it dices, slices,
Never stops, lasts a lifetime, mows your lawn
And it mows your lawn and it picks up the kids from school
It gets rid of unwanted facial hair, it gets rid of embarrassing age spots,
It delivers a pizza, and it lengthens, and it strengthens
And it finds that slipper that's been at large
under the chaise lounge for several weeks
And it plays a mean Rhythm Master,
It makes excuses for unwanted lipstick on your collar
And it's only a dollar, step right up, it's only a dollar, step right up

'Cause it forges your signature
If not completely satisfied, mail back unused portion of product
For complete refund of price of purchase
Step right up
Please allow thirty days for delivery, don't be fooled by cheap imitations
You can live in it, live in it, laugh in it, love in it
Swim in it, sleep in it,
Live in it, swim in it, laugh in it, love in it
Removes embarrassing stains from contour sheets, that's right
And it entertains visiting relatives, it turns a sandwich into a banquet
Tired of being the life of the party?
Change your shorts, change your life, change your life
Change into a nine-year-old Hindu boy, get rid of your wife,
And it walks your dog, and it doubles on sax
Doubles on sax, you can jump back Jack, see you later alligator
See you later alligator
And it steals your car
It gets rid of your gambling debts, it quits smoking
It's a friend, and it's a companion,
And it's the only product you will ever need
Follow these easy assembly instructions it never needs ironing
Well it takes weights off hips, bust, thighs, chin, midriff,
Gives you dandruff, and it finds you a job, it is a job
And it strips the phone company free take ten for five exchange,
And it gives you denture breath
And you know it's a friend, and it's a companion
And it gets rid of your traveler's checks
It's new, it's improved, it's old-fashioned
Well it takes care of business, never needs winding,
Never needs winding, never needs winding
Gets rid of blackheads, the heartbreak of psoriasis,
Christ, you don't know the meaning of heartbreak, buddy,
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon
'Cause it's effective, it's defective, it creates household odors,
It disinfects, it sanitizes for your protection
It gives you an erection, it wins the election
Why put up with painful corns any longer?
It's a redeemable coupon, no obligation, no salesman will visit your home
We got a jackpot, jackpot, jackpot, prizes, prizes, prizes, all work guaranteed
How do we do it, how do we do it, how do we do it, how do we do it
We need your business, we're going out of business
We'll give you the business
Get on the business end of our going-out-of-business sale
Receive our free brochure, free brochure
Read the easy-to-follow assembly instructions, batteries not included
Send before midnight tomorrow, terms available,
Step right up, step right up, step right up
You got it buddy: the large print giveth, and the small print taketh away
Step right up, you can step right up, you can step right up
C'mon step right up
(Get away from me kid, you bother me...)
Step right up, step right up, step right up, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon
Step right up, you can step right up, c'mon and step right up,
C'mon and step right up

Re: Lyrics of the Songs You Love

I've always loved the way that "Brighton Rock" by Queen flows poetically.

Happy little day
Jimmy went away
Met his little Jenny on a public holiday
A happy pair they made
So decorously laid
'Neath the gay illuminations all along the promenade
It's so good to know there's still a little magic in the air
I'll weave my spell

"Jenny will you stay?
Tarry with me, pray
Nothing e'er need come between us. Tell me love, what do you say?"
"Oh no, I must away
To my mum in disarray
If my mother should discover how I spent my holiday
It would be of small avail to talk of magic in the air
I'll say farewell"

O Rock of Ages, do not crumble, love is breathing still
Oh Lady Moon, shine down a little people magic if you will

Jenny pines away
Writes a letter every day
"We must ever be together, nothing can my love erase"
"Oh no, I'm compromised
I must apologize
If my lady should discover how I spent my holidays..."

Re: Lyrics of the Songs You Love

Teach Me How to Be Loved - Rebbeca

One foot onto the ice
I hold my breath
And try to believe
Can I look at you with different eyes?
Like the girl that I was, when I was 17

The fallen empires,
The shattered glass
The wicked echos of my past.
I've seen it all before, that's why I'm asking.

Will you still be here tomorrow
Or will you leave in the dead of the night?
So your waves don't crash around me,
I'm staying one step ahead of the tide.
Will you leave me lost in my shadows
Or will you pull me into your light?
Teach me how to be loved
Teach me how to be loved

I got caught up in a daze
Of the wine and roses
Such a sweet escape
But I watched it all slip away
Like running water from my hands
Raining on this picture land

The fallen empires,
The shattered glass
The wicked echos of my past.
I've seen it all before, that's why I'm asking.

Will you still be here tomorrow
Or will you leave in the dead of the night?
So your waves don't crash around me,
I'm staying one step ahead of the tide.
Will you leave me lost in my shadows
Or will you pull me into your light?
Teach me how to be loved

Can I give myself just one more second chance?
And put my trust in love,
Please don't hurt me.
If I make myself like a feather in you hand
And put my trust in love,
Please don't hurt me.

Will you still be here tomorrow
Or will you leave in the dead of the night?
So your waves don't crash around me,
I'm staying one step ahead of the tide.
Will you leave me lost in my shadows
Or will you pull me into your light?
Teach me how to be loved
Teach me how to be loved

Should be noted that the song in the OP was written by Stuart Murdoch from Belle & Sebastian and features Norah Jones.

Re: Lyrics of the Songs You Love

Creep - Radiohead

I also luv the jazz version covered by Karen Souza!

When you were here before
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
And I wish I was special
You're so fuckin' special
But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here.
I don't care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When I'm not around
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special
But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here.
She's running out again,
She's running out
She's run run run running out...
Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special...
But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo,
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here.
I don't belong here.

Re: Lyrics of the Songs You Love

The Wound That Never Heals.........Jim White


Long about an hour before sunrise
she drags his body down to the edge of the swollen river
wrapped in a red velvet curtain stolen from the movie theater where she works. Quiet as a whisper, under the stanchions of a washed-out bridge she cuts him loose...and watches as the flood waters spin him around once, then carry him away. Then she removes the golden ring upon her finger...and she throws it in.

And I wonder; Baby why don't you cry? Baby why don't you... Baby why don't you cry?

Three days later in a bar in southern Mississippi she meets a man by the name of Charles Lee. She introduces herself to him as "Lee Charles" "What a coincidence." he says...and one week later they are married. He wakes up one night six months down the line to find her staring at him in the oddest way. When he says, "Honey, what's wrong?" she says, "Oh nothing dear...except that tears are a stupid trick of God."
And by the time they find his body six weeks later... Well hell, she's a thousand miles away.

And I wonder; Baby why don't you cry? Baby why don't you... Baby why don't you cry?

She runs from devils. She runs from angels. She runs from the ghost of her father and five different uncles. Blinded by their memory, seared by their pain, she'd like to kill 'em all...then kill 'em all again. She don't think much about what she's done or the funny feelings that she feels. No, she don't. To her it's just a condition she picked up as a child... a little thing she calls, "the wound that never heals", she calls it, "the wound that never heals"

And I wonder; Baby why don't you cry? Baby why don't you...
Baby why don't you cry?

Re: Lyrics of the Songs You Love

Far From Any Road.....The Handsome Family


From the dusty mesa her looming shadow grows
Hidden in the branches of the poison creosote

She twines her spines up slowly towards the boiling sun,
And when I touched her skin, my fingers ran with blood.

In the hushing dusk, under a swollen silver moon,
I came walking with the wind to watch the cactus bloom.

A strange hunger haunted me; the looming shadows danced.
I fell down to the thorny brush and felt a trembling hand.

When the last light warms the rocks and the rattlesnakes unfold,
Mountain cats will come to drag away your bones.

And rise with me forever across the silent sand,
And the stars will be your eyes and the wind will be my hands.

How To Fight Loneliness - Wilco

The first time I heard this song was from the movie Girl, Interrupted.

How to fight loneliness
Smile all the time
Shine you teeth til meaningless
Sharpen them with lies

And whatevers going down
Will follow you around
Thats how you fight loneliness
You laugh at every joke
Drag your blanket blindly
Fill your heart with smoke
And the first thing that you want
Will be the last thing you ever need
Thats how you fight it

Just smile all the time
Just smile all the time
Just smile all the time
Just smile all the time

Re: Lyrics of the Songs You Love

Reality - Richard Sanderson

The world is big but I met you; The time is so long but I never saw you again.
I still long for seeing you face. Really miss you.

Met you by surprise, I didn't realize
That my life would change forever
Saw you standing there, I didn't know I cared
There was something special in the air.

Dreams are my reality
The only kind of real fantasy
Illusions are a common thing
I try to live in dreams
It seems as if it's meant to be.

Dreams are my reality
A different kind of reality
I dream of loving in the night
And loving seems alright
Although it's only fantasy.

If you do exist, honey don't resist
Show me a new way of loving
Tell me that it's true
Show me what to do
I feel something special about you.

Dreams are my reality
The only kind of reality
Maybe my foolishness has past
And maybe now at last
I'll see how a real thing can be.

Dreams are my reality
A wonderous world where I like to be
I dream of holding you all night
And holding you seems right
Perhaps that's my reality.

Met you by surprise, I didn't realize
That my life would change forever
Tell me that it's true
Feelings that are cue
I feel something special about you.

Dreams are my reality
A wonderous world where I like to be
Illusions are a common thing
I try to live in dreams
Although it's only fantasy.

Dreams are my reality
I like to dream of you close to me
I dream of loving in the night
And loving you seems right
Perhaps that's my reality.

Re: Lyrics of the Songs You Love

"Sometimes" by James

There's a storm outside, and the gap between crack and thunder
Crack and thunder, is closing in, is closing in
The rain floods gutters, and makes a great sound on the concrete
On a flat roof, there's a boy leaning against the wall of rain
Aerial held high, calling "come on thunder, come on thunder"

Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your soul
Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your soul

It's a monsoon, and the rain lifts lids off cars
Spinning buses like toys, stripping them to chrome
Across the bay, the waves are turning into something else
Picking up fishing boats and spewing them on the shore

The boy is hit, lit up against the sky, like a sign, like a neon sign
And he crumples, drops into the gutter, legs twitching
The flood swells his clothes and delivers him on, delivers him on

Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your soul
Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your soul

There's four new colors in the rainbow
An old man's taking Polaroids
But all he captures is endless rain, endless rain
He says listen, takes my head and puts my ear to his
And I swear I can hear the sea

Sometimes, when I look in your eyes I can see your soul
(I can touch your soul )
(I can reach your soul)
Sometimes

Re: Lyrics of the Songs You Love

TANGLEWOOD TREE by Dave Carter

love is a tanglewood tree in a bower of green
in a forest at dawn
fair while the mockingbird sings, but she soon lifts her wings
and the music is gone

young lovers in the tall grass with their hearts open wide
when the red summer poppies bloom
but love is a trackless domain and the rumor of rain
in the late afternoon

love is an old root that creeps through the meadows of sleep
when the long shadows cast
thin as a vagrant young vine, it encircles and twines
and it holds the heart fast
catches dreamers in the wildwood with the stars in their eyes
and the moon in their tousled hair
but love is a light in the sky, and an unspoken lie
and a half-whispered prayer

i'm walkin down a bone-dry river where the cool mirage runs true
i'm bankin on the fables of the far, far better things we do
i'm livin for the day of reck'nin countin down the hours
i yearn away, i burn away, i turn away the fairest flower of love, 'cause darlin

love is a garden of thorns, and a crow in the corn
and the brake growing wild
cold when the summer is spent in the jade heart's lament
for the faith of a child
my body has a number and my face has a name
and each day looks the same to me
but love is a voice on the wind, and the wages of sin
and a tanglewood tree

love's garden of thorns, how it grows
black crow in the corn hummin low
brake nettle so pretty and wild
and thistles surround the edge of the
dim dark hour as the sun moves away
lamenting a lost summer day
who nurtures the faith of a child
when nothing remains to cover her eyes

my body has a number, maybe my face has a name
each hour like each hour before
this longing is a voice on the wind
she cultivates the wages of sin
in a tanglewood tree

Re: Lyrics of the Songs You Love

SEE HOW WE ARE...John Doe/Exene Cervenka

There are men lost in jail
Crowded fifty to a room
There's too many rats in this cage of the world
And the women know their place
They sit home and write letters
And when they visit once a year
Well they both just sit there and stare

See how we are
Gotta keep bars in between us
See how we are
We only sing about it once in every twenty years
See how we are
Oh see how we are

Now there are seven kinds of Coke
500 kinds of cigarettes
This freedom of choice in the USA drives everybody crazy
But in Acapulco
Well they don't give a damn
About kids selling Chiclets with no shoes on their feet

See how we are
"Hey man, what's in it for me?"
See how we are
We only sing about it once in every twenty years
See how we are
Oh see how we are

Now that highway's coming through
So you all gotta move
This bottom rung ain't no fun at all
No fires and rockhouses and grape-flavored rat poison
They are the new trinity
For this so-called community

See how we are
Gotta keep bars on all of our windows
See how we are
We only sing about it once in every twenty years
See how we are
Oh see how we are

Well this morning the alarm rang at noon
And I'm trying to write this letter to you
About how much I care and why I just can't be there
To draw your bath and comb...and comb your hair

Last night in a nightspot
Where things aren't so hot
My friend said, "I met a boy and I'm in love"
I said, "Oh really... What's this one's name?"
She said, "His first name is Homeboy"
I said "Could his last name be Trouble?"

See how we are
Ah Homeboy... Isn't that a Mexican name?
See how we are
We only sing about it once in every twenty years
See how we are
Oh see how we are
Yeah see how we are

Du, du hast

Du hast mich gefragt
Du hast mich gefragt
Du hast mich gefragt
Und ich hab nichts gesagt

Willst du bis der Tot euch scheidet
Treue ihr sein für alle Tage
Nein, nein

Willst du bis zum Tot der scheide
Sie lieben auch in schlechten Tagen
Nein, nein

Du, du hast
Du hast mich
Du, du hast
Du hast mich

Du, du hast
Du hast mich
Du hast mich

Du hast mich gefragt
Du hast mich gefragt
Du hast mich gefragt
Und ich hab nichts gesagt

Willst du bist der Tot euch scheidet
Treue ihr sein für alle Tage
Nein, nein

Willst du bis zum Tot der scheide
Sie lieben auch in schlechten Tagen
Nein, nein

Willst du bis der Tot euch scheidet
Treue ihr sein
Nein, nein

Re: Lyrics of the Songs You Love

The Jam---Tales from the Riverbank:

"Tales From The Riverbank"

Bring you a tale from the pastel fields
Where we ran when we were young
This is a tale from the water meadows
Trying to spread some hope into your heart

It's mixed with happiness, it's mixed with tears
Both life and death are carried in this stream
That open space you could run for miles
Now you don't get so many to the pound

True it's a dream mixed with nostalgia
But it's a dream that I'll always hang on to
That I'll always run to
Won't you join me by the riverbank

Paradise found down by the still waters
Joined in the race to the rainbow's end
No fears, no worries just a golden country
Woke at sunrise, went home at sunset

Now life is so critical, life is too cynical
We lose our innocence, we lose our very soul

True it's a dream mixed with nostalgia
But it's a dream that I'll always hang on to
That I'll always run to
True it's a dream mixed with nostalgia
But it's a dream that I'll always hang on to
That I always run to
Won't you join me by the riverbank
Come on and join me by the riverbank

Re: Lyrics of the Songs You Love

Casablanca - Lonely Drifter Karen

Ingrid Bergman is gorgeous in Casablanca, though I don't know whether this song is related to the movie.

Tell me more about Casablanca
You and I are meant to be
Free spirits cross in water
Let me love you equally

Oranges in the morning
In the temple it's cool
That is where
I saw you

I know the girls that are far
I know the voice I've heard
Singing the sad songs

Ba babanbabanbabanbabanbaban
Babanbabanbabanbabanbaban…
Ca aaaaaa assablanca
Casa blanca
Ba babanbabanbabanbabanbaban
Babanbabanbabanbabanbaban

Buddy Zeus - Mocca

SOoooo CUTE!

I try to find that old blue leash
Here you are…but please don’t bark!
Running, playing in the park
Tryin’ to find your favorite spot
Go fetch that stick my furry friend
Or catch that Frisbee in the wind
I bounce the ball..You start to roll
But then you suddenly stop..
Oh..God!you poo..But what can I do?
I hope no one sees that thing you do..
Oh..please don’t pee..You embarrass me..
I hope no one sees that thing you do..
My dear Buddy, it’s time for bath!
Don’t you dare to run away!
The suds are up, come on get up!
I’ve got a date please hurry up!
Here he comes the guy next door
And he’s the one that I adore
And then he smiles..I start to blush
But then you suddenly stop!
Oh..God!you poo..But what can I do?
I hope no one sees that thing you do..
Oh..please don’t pee..You embarrass me..
I hope no one sees that thing you do..

Re: Lyrics of the Songs You Love

Blue eyes of fire
My sweet desire is bitter torture
You are no father's daughter
No man has that much to offer
Skin dark as sin
Soft and when we took cover
From the rain and the thunder
Beneath stained glass we did slumber
Until the sun came out to blind us
And we could not see anything
We knew at once we were meant to be
And we heard the gods all rise and sing
The love we made was no lie

Now with 30 years of hopes and fears breathing down my neck
Such a sad, sad thing I set you free
Because I can't get you back
You are fire, you are water
When you dance it is torture
Maybe some night by the grey light of the dull moon we can meet

Tangled, intwined, we have climbed, we have wrangled
Shiny, sequined, sparked, and spangled
Our hearts iron cuffed and mangled
We spent the night by the side of the water
Passed the breakers and the markers
We swam out to meet the darkness
Until we could not feel the bottom
Until we could not feel anything
As the shoreline drifted slowly out of reach
The moon shown down and the ocean heaved
As darkness gave way to light

And with 30 years of hopes and fears breathing down my neck
Such a sad, sad thing I set you free
Because I can't get you back
You are fire, you are water
When you dance it is torture
Maybe some day on the bottom of the ocean we can meet
Though we know once we do, we can never leave
For the moment that we turn away
The gods will say that the love we made was a lie

- Crooked Fingers, "You Can Never Leave"

Re: Lyrics of the Songs You Love

One if my favorite Kiss songs of all time: A Million to One -

Baby, now that you've made up your mind
I'm gonna let you go,
if that's what it takes to show love is blind
I gave you the best love you ever had,
but it wasn't enough
So if you think you're so smart,
go and play with your heart
When you walk out the door,
you'll realize what you never did before

A million to one - that's what it will be
A million to one - there's someone better than me
A million to one - no, you never will find
A million to one - another love like mine

Yeah, we chose our sides and I've been misunderstood
But everytime I try to open your eyes,
I'm damned and I'm no good
Day after day, you're further away, I can't take anymore
So it's time that you go,
but I want you to know, I won't stand in your way
Deep in my heart I know, girl you're runnin' away

A million to one
One of these days you'll come out of your haze,
no matter what you do
It'll be too late, something good won't wait,
love is runnin' out on you
A million to one, a million to one

A million to one
One of these days you'll come out of your haze,
no matter what you do
It'll be too late, something good won't wait,
love is runnin' out on you
A million to one, a million to one

listen to your heart girl - a million to one - oh

A million to one - no, you never will find
A million to one - another love like mine
A million to one [repeats out]
