Within there's every little memory resting calm with me
Resting in a dream
Smiling back at me
The faces of the past keep calling me to come back home
Rest calm and remember me

Living this charade
Is getting me nowhere
Can't shake this charade
The city's cold blood calls me home
Home... it's what I long for
Back home... where I belong

You belong to the city
You belong to the night
Livin' in a river of darkness
Beneath the neon lights
You were born in the city
Concrete under your feet

Deep music fills the night
Deep in the heart of Harlem
And though the stars are bright
The darkness is taunting me

Once upon a night we'll wake to the carnival of life
The beauty of this ride ahead such an incredible high
It's hard to light a candle, easy to curse the dark instead
This moment the dawn of humanity
The last ride of the day

Light one candle for the terrible sacrifice
Justice and freedom demand!
And light one candle for the wisdom to know
When the peacemaker's time is at hand!

Don't let the light go out!
It's lasted for so many years!
Don't let the light go out!
Let it shine through our love and our tears.

We rest by the fire, the shadows come to life by its light
Three brothers, sons of white wolf, observed by the eyes of the night
Night is long where the sunlight is pale
The fear is strong when you ride in the dawn
Down Foreverdark Woods trail

It's the eye of the tiger
It's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he's watching us all with the
Eye of the tiger

Ooh he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes,
Ooh he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes

He's very understanding,
And he's so aware of all my situations,
When I stay up late,
He's always waiting

With the eyes of a child
You must come out and see
That your world's spinning 'round
And through life you will be
A small part of a hope
Of a love that exists
In the eyes of a child you will see

Tellin' you people, tell you no lie
My heart was breakin', I'll tell you why
Back and forth, lies unfurl
In the eyes, in the eyes, in the eyes, in the eyes of the world
(Eyes...eyes...eyes...eyes...)
(Eyes...eyes...eyes...eyes...)

And she'll tease you
She'll unease you
All the better just to please you
She's precocious and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
She got Greta Garbo stand off sighs
She's got Bette Davis eyes

I never know what I want, what I need
So I think its best you stay away from me
'Cause I hate the way you tease me
I am not lonely, I'm alright
But you sure don't make it easy
To show my hand and say, "goodnight"

Goodnight, goodnight, until we meet again
Adios, Au Revoir, Auf Wiedersehn 'til then
And though it's always sweet sorrow to part
You know you'll always remain in my heart

I say high, you say low
You say why and I say I don't know, oh no
You say goodbye and I say hello
(Hello goodbye hello goodbye) Hello hello
(Hello goodbye) I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello

I don't want to get hurt, I've done my time
All I want from you is to tell the truth
I don't want to get hurt no more this time
I don't want to go blind and find
It's falling apart all the time

There are things I should remember
But I have forgotten how
I'm all tied up with no time
Trying do too much
And the thoughts that I've avoided
Are the ones I need right now
Like a warm wind and love's hand
And I just wanna be touched
And I just wanna be real
And I just wanna get well
And I just wanna be healed
And I just wanna be warm

No, you can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometime you find
You get what you need

This is the end, beautiful friend
This is the end, my only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I'll never look into your eyes again

My Beautiful Friend
I swear I adore you
Ain't no woman deep enough
I don't know how we made it this far dear
Without losing at least an ear
I could leave us, I could leave us a painting
Our lives are-a-changing
So it goes

And when no hope was left inside
On that starry, starry night
You took your life, as lovers often do
But I could have told you, Vincent
The world was never meant for one
As beautiful as you

Daniel my brother you are older than me
Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal
Your eyes have died but you see more than I
Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky

Dark as the night comes to share
With stars in her hair
And grand majestic flair
Framed, a world passes by
With the sound of a young girl's sigh
Man carrying a brow
Smoke rises from the crowd

Here for now

You left me here on your way to paradise
You pulled the rug right out from under my life
I know where you goin' to I knew when you came home last night
'Cause your eyes had a mist from the smoke of a distant fire

We all came out to Montreux on the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile, we didn't have much time
Frank Zappa and the Mothers were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun burned the place to the ground

Smoke on the water, a fire in the sky
Smoke on the water

It doesn't really matter what chords I play
What words I say or time of day it is
As it's only a Northern song

Desination outward bound
I turn to see the northern lights behind the wing
Horizons seem to beckon me
Learned how to cry too young
So now I live to sing

The northern lights are in my mind
They guide me back to you

Anger rideth with the one that knows no fear
Whose eyes like fire, whose heart's like ice
And spirit rideth with the ones that know no fear
They were the sons, the sons of northern darkness

beware of darkness

Watch out now, take care
Beware of the thoughts that linger
Winding up inside your head
The hopelessness around you
In the dead of night

I wish for this night-time
to last for a lifetime
The darkness around me
Shores of a solar sea
Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With you

Weep no more, my ladies,
O weep no more, I pray,
We will sing one song for my old Kentucky home,
For my old Kentucky home far away.

If I crawl across the floor
Then I'd be closer to that door
Well, it's too far
Never been so far away
Just lost the last thought in my head

What happens now?
Some fantasy you've been
Pick up the pieces in my mind
I'm going...
I'm going home

Going back to Miami (Going back to Miami)
Going back to my girl (Going back to my girl)
I said I'm going back to Miami (Going back to Miami)
Going back to my girl (Going back to my girl)

Right back to drinkin' again
Someday you'll love me enough to stay with me
And whiskey won't be my best friend
But now it's back to the barrooms again

We'll be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched us once will smile and take us in
And we'll drink and dance with one hand free
And have the world so easily
And oh we'll be a sight to see
Back in the high life again

One day you could be looking
Through an old book in rainy weather
You see a picture of her smiling at you
When you were still together
Or you could be walking down the street
And who should you chance to meet
But that…Full lyrics on Google

But if you see me walking by, and the tears are in my eyes
Look away, baby, look away
If we meet on the street some day, and I don't know what to say
Look away, baby, look away
Don't look at me
I don't want you to see me this way

Old MacDonald had a farm
E-I-E-I-O
And on his farm he had some chicks
E-I-E-I-O
With a chick chickhere
And a chick chick there
Here a chick, there a chick
Everywhere a chick chick.
Old MacDonald had a farm

I should have stayed on the farm
I should have listened to my old man
You know you can't hold me forever
I didn't sign up with you
I'm not a present for your friends to open
This boy's too young to be singing, the blues
So goodbye yellow brick road
Where the dogs of society howl

Well I never felt more like singin' the blues
'Cause I never thought that I'd ever lose your love, dear
Why'd you do me this way?

Well I never felt more like cryin' all night
'Cause everything's wrong and nothin' ain't right, without you
You got me singin' the blues

Celie, she's oppressed
Her spirit is all but gone
Her cry for help no one sees
No one sees her at all

So you say you like the blues
How about the pain that it took?

And I guess that's why they call it the blues
Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

Undercover angel, midnight fantasy
I've never had a dream that made sweet love to me
Undercover angel, answer to my prayer
You made me know that there's a love for me out there
(Somewhere) Yeah, somewhere

[love it when I can use the same song twice in two threads]

Is this where you've been?
Were you in fairer skies?
Searching for angel's hands
Denying lower highs
