A recent favorite:

I'm coming home
I'm coming home
Tell the World I'm coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits and they've forgiven my mistakes
I'm coming home, I'm coming home
Tell the World that I'm coming

Think before you speak.  Speak your mind.  Mind your business.  Business before pleasure.
Any questions?

My new favorite group: Mumford and Sons.  THE CAVE:              :rockon:   :smitten:

It's empty in the valley of your heart
The sun, it rises slowly as you walk
Away from all the fears
And all the faults you've left behind
First, do no harm.

Peter Von Poehl
(In English)
Whatever happened to the great escape
The finest enemy.
Crafted with pride by monsters on the train.
The world is great to suckers

We have the story of the impossible
A tale passed on so frail
One of make-belief
Maybe impossible to achieve
And really close


Beautifully Sad song...

Plain was the same as it ever was the same.
Plainly plain…
Samely same…
But then…someone lit the flame.
Plain rode away on lion’s mane.
Where plain met fruits with strangely names.
Such wonderful things they did contain.
A shot of life to a hungry vein.
The captive beast who broke the chain.
And there upon that fruited plane,
is where plain became what plain became.
So much more than more than plain.
Plain will never be the same.

MY MOM



They got 5 televisions
In a house built for 3
Look up on that fake fireplace
You know the bucktoothed boy's me
See that wood paneled room'
That's where I learned to drink
See that hole in the wall'
That was seagrams I think

That tree was a goal post
That bathroom it was a shroud
That closet it was a phone booth
That mirror was a crowd
See that guy with the bad knees
And his heart on his sleeve'
Watch him slip me ten dollar

Simple & Sincere  :coolsmiley:
DIAMONDS AND RUST

(Joan Baez)


Well I'll be damned
Here comes your ghost again
But that's not unusual
It's just that the moon is full
And you happened to call

My thoughts are thundering, tumblin
 Sons of bitches, switches, from yelling ta mumbling
 You ain't a pal of me, my family ties but not wit Mallory
 My analogy ain't for salary, as I roll reality thru galaxies
 Four centuries, it's sent to me with the scent of oiu
 Witta chain representing penitentiaries
 from Roman town to Borentown
 From Newark to Illtown
 And all you know from
 lifers, Rikers ta foesome
 



Love songs!

There is a house built out of stone
 Wooden floors, walls and window sills
 Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust
 This is a place where I don't feel alone
 This is a place where i feel at home
 
And I built a home
 For you
 For me
 
Until it disappeared
 From me
 From you
 And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust

If I kiss you will you go away?
Like in the game my mother used to play
You're so much hurt I wish you wouldn't stay
If I kiss you will you go away?

My mom would come when I'd get hurt at play
She kissed my hurt and it would go away
But now I'm grown I don't know what to do
I've never known a bigger hurt than you

If I kiss you will you go away?
Like in the game my mother used to play
You're so much hurt I wish you wouldn't stay
If I kiss you will you go away?


I've seen a kiss make sorrow disappear
A kiss can dry away the biggest tear
A kiss can make a heartache vanish too
I don't see why it wouldn't work on you

If I kiss you will you go away?
Like in the game my mother used to play
You're so much hurt I wish you wouldn't stay
If I kiss you will you go away?
