Single Line/verse Of A Song

If you could save me

From the ranks of the freaks

Who suspect they could never love anyone

I'll accept with poise with grace

When they draw my name from the lottery

And they'll say "all the salt in the world couldnt melt that ice"

This is my favorite Robert Plant Solo Songs...the whole song needs to be printed to do it justice.

 

Anniversary [Anniversary of love's decay]

 

What is this land, that I have found

Bitter silence all around It's the anniversary

Feel the fear, and sad defeat

Keeps my fragile haunted peace

On the anniversary

Through these dark and lovely streets

Drag my ragged defeat

It's the anniversary

The anniversary

It's the anniversary

How far is hate, away from this

Reluctant heated kiss

On the anniversary

The anniversary

The anniversary

Ooh I don't want to feel your kiss no more

I don't want to feel your kiss no more

I don't want to feel your kiss no more

Oh oh oh oh I don't want to feel your kiss no more

Oh oh oh!

but the airport's almost empty this time of the year,

so let's go play on a baggage carousel.

Set our watches forward like we're just arriving here

from a past we left in a place we knew too well.

flower tattoo - dbl

 

do you wanna

go for a walk?

you can hold my hand

we can laugh and talk

you can lead the way

which way ya wanna go?

tell me all the things

i really wanna know

 

hair is gold and her eyes are blue

i'm in love with the girl with the flower tattoo

 

with a t-shirt, sneakers and some faded blue jeans

a pocket in the back, ripped from the seams

she really doesn't care

what they hear & see

what they think about her, what they think about me

 

hair is gold and her eyes are blue

i'm in love with the girl with the flower tattoo

and if I wrote the perfect song

you know i'd name it after you

hair is gold and her eyes are blue

i'm in love with the girl with the flower tattoo

Pamphleteer - The Weakerthans

 

I'm standing on this corner.

Can't get their attention.

Facing rush hour faces turned around.

I clutch my stack of paper, press one to a chest,

then watch it swoop and stutter to the ground.

I'm weary with right-angles, abbreviated daylight,

and waiting for a winter to be done.

Why do I still see you in every mirrored window,

in all that I could never overcome?

How I don't know what I should do with my hands when I talk to you.

How you don't know where you should look, so you look at my hands.

How movements rise and then dissolve, melted by our shallow breath.

How causes dance away from me.

I am your pamphleteer.

I walk this room in time to the beat of the Gestetner,

contemplate my next communique.

The rhetoric and treason of saying that I'll miss you.

Of saying "Hey, well maybe you should stay."

Sing "Oh what force on earth could be weaker than the feeble strength of one"

like me remembering the way it could have been.

Help me with this barricade.

No surrender. No defeat.

A spectre's haunting Albert Street.

I am your pamphleteer.

and the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearls

all at once you look across a crowded room

to see the way that light attaches to a girl

And the finest hour that I

Youve gone to the finest school all right, miss lonely

But you know you only used to get juiced in it

And nobody has ever taught you how to live on the street

And now you find out youre gonna have to get used to it

i close my eyes

I'm listening to that song right now.

 

That would be a cool coincidence if you hadn't been the one to inspire me to play it. Great song.

David Usher - St.Lawrence River ;)

 

You are watching breathing and baiting

Wanting and warming and cautiously waiting

For some simple signal to creep cross your conscience

Uncover redemption and oh did I mention

I carried you down to the St. Lawrence River

The banks running dirty the water's beginning to freeze here

Solid by morning

And I'll freeze here

Winter by morning

Both Blue and St. Lawrence River are fantastic tunes.

Now run along my little nightmare

Your job is done here, you've scared them all to death

If they revive them just sit there,

Just smile dear, make them thankful for every breath

Childhood living is easy to do

The things you wanted I bought them for you

Graceless lady you know who I am

You know I can't let you slide through my hands

 

Wild horses couldn't drag me away

Wild horses couldn't drag me away

 

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain

And now you've decided to show me the same

No sweeping exits or off stage lines

Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

 

Wild horses couldn't drag me away

Wild horses couldn't drag me away

 

I know I've dreamed you, it's a sin, it's a lie

And I have my freedom but I don't have much time

Faith has been broken tears must be cried

So let's do some living after we die

 

Wild horses couldn't drag me away

Wild horses couldn't drag me away

 

Wild, wild horses couldn't drag me away

Wild, wild horses we'll ride them someday

given to fly - pearl jam

 

a wave came crashing like a fist to the jaw

delivered him wings, "Hey, look at me now"

arms wide open with the sea as his floor

oh, power, oh

 

he's flying

whole

high

wide

 

he floated back down 'cause he wanted to share

his key to the locks on the chains he saw everywhere

but first he was stripped and then he was stabbed

by faceless men, well, fuckers

he still stands

 

 

--love that song. i was wrong to stop listening to them. kids are dumb.

He was a sweet and tender hooligan, hooligan

And he swore that he'll never, never do it again

And of course he won't (oh, not until the next time)

 

Poor old man

He had an "accident" with a three-bar fire

But that's OK

Because he wasn't very happy anyway

Poor woman

Strangled in her very own bed as she read

But that's OK

Because she was old and she would have died anyway

DON'T BLAME

 

The sweet and tender hooligan, hooligan

Because he'll never, never, never, never, never, never do it again

(not until the next time)

 

Jury, you've heard every word

So before you decide

Would you look into those "Mother me" eyes

 

Smiths - Sweet and Tender Hooligan.
