This is one of my favorite songs, I sat in with some friends playing a private party last night, and sang it with lead singer. My friend was dreamy eyed the rest of the night.

 

 

Innocent One - Michael Penn

 

Sweet Miranda brings me the wine

We have had our fill

of almost everything

turning thistledown laughter

I would take her blue cue too late

I would say the words

almost anything

just to catch what she's after

but you don't believe that I'm

a partner in this game

how can you believe that I'm the innocent one

When the bow broke in pieces we fell

we would scream and shout

almost anything

but the point is we fell dear

There will be no more wishlessness

There may be some doubt

No new day without

Best that we say farewell here

but you don't believe that I'm

a party to the pain

how can you believe that I'm the innocent one

I saw this girl crying

by the wheel of her car

she had balloons in the back seat

the front door ajar

She never moved so I just whispered goodbye

she reminded me of you when you cry

and I didn't mean to make you cry

 

Sweet Miranda brings me the wine

We have had our fill

of almost everything

turning thistledown laughter

I would take her blue cue too late

I would say the words

almost anything

just to catch what she's after

but you don't believe that I'm

a partner in this game

how can you believe that I'm the innocent one

I open up, you ignore me

You're not the same at all

And if I could turn back

The pages of time I'd rewrite your point of view

-End It On This-No Doubt

 

Climbed over mountains

Travelled the sea

Cast down off heaven

Cast down on my knees

I've laid with the devil

Cursed god above

Forsaken heaven

To bring you my love

-To Bring You My Love-PJ Harvey

Supervision is what I need

Some consistence, tangibility

Some casual light days

Part of the furniture

I want to take you for granted

And see you regular

-Home Now-No Doubt

 

I'm goin' to California

To find my pot of gold

Corruption on every corner

Hustlers sellin' sweets

Baby is home cryin'

While her mom is on the streets

Everybody's dyin'

Have you heard the news today?

A woman in north Phili is mournin'

A bullet took another son away

-Going to California-Pink

 

I'm not dead just floating

Underneath the ink of my tattoo

I've tried to hide my scars from you

I'm not scared just changing

Right beyond the cigarette and the devilish smile

You're my crack of sunlight oh

-I'm Not Dead-Pink

 

I would never pull the trigger

But I've cried wolf a thousand times

I wish you could

Feel as bad as I do

I have lost my mind

-It's All Your Fault-Pink

 

Yeah, I've been in a Pink kick lately. I love her music so much.

I never said i would stay to the end i knew

I would leave you with babies and everything

Screaming like this in the hole of sincerity

Screaming me over and over and over i leave

You with photographs pictues of trickery

Stains on the carpet and stains on the memory

Songs about happiness murmured in dreams when

both of us knew how the end always is

"And yo, I used to get a threesome every other weekend

cheated on mah girl till we nearly stopped speakin`

She broke down and cried and it hurt so bad

Her friends went and told her I was a brand new dad

Of course, she knows now I ain't use no bag

My excuse? I just couldn't cum like that."

Available Light

Music by Lee and Lifeson / Lyrics by Peart

 

the restless wind

has seen all things

in every kind of light

rising with the full moon

to go howling through the night

 

the sleepless wind

has heard all things

between the sea and sky

in the canyons of the city

you can hear the buildings cry

 

oh the wind can carry

all the voices of the sea

oh the wind can carry

all the echoes home to me

 

Run with wind and weather

To the music of the sea

All four winds together

Can't bring the world to me

Chase the wind around the world

I want to look at life - In the available light

 

play of light

a photograph

the way I used to be

some half-forgotten stranger

doesn't mean that much to me

 

trick of light

moving picture

moments caught in flight

make the shadows darker

or the colors shine too bright

 

oh the light can carry

all the visions of the sea

oh the light can carry

all the images to me

 

Run to light from shadow

Sun gives me no rest

Promise offered in the east

Broken in the west

Chase the sun around the world

I want to look at life - In the available light

 

All four winds together

Can't bring the world to me

Shadows hide the play of light

So much I want to see

Chase the light around the world

I want to look at life - In the available light

 

I'll go with the wind

I'll stand in the light

I LOVE Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie by Alanis Morissette because of the lyrics. They are not a "normal" structure...

 

you said "wouldn't it be a shame if I knew how great I was five minutes before I died i'd be filled

with such regret before I took my last breath" and I said "you're willing to tell me this now

and you're not going to die any time soon"

and I said I haven't been eating chicken or meat or anything and you said yes

but you've been wearing leather and laughed and said we're at the top of the food chain

and yes you're a fine woman and I cringed

I was hoping I was hoping we could heal each other

I was hoping I was hoping we could be raw together

we left the restaurant where the head waiter (in his 60's) said "good-bye sir thank you for your business sir you're

successful and established sir and we like the frequency with which you dine here sir

and your money" and when I walked by they said "thank you too dear" I was all pigtails and cords

and there was a day when I would've said something like "hey dude I could buy and sell this place so kiss it"

I too once thought I was owed something

-I Was Hoping-Alanis Morissette

 

do you go to the dungeon to find out how to make peace with your days in the dungeon writing a letter

to you didn't make me feel any more peaceful then how I felt when we weren't speaking because I

didn't cop to what I did. I can't love you because we're supposed to have professional boundaries. i'd

like you to be schooled and in awe as though you were kissed by god full on the lips . i'm in the front

row the front row with popcorn I get to see you see you close up i'm too tired to recount the

unpleasantries one by one one minute I want to banish you the next I want to be on

a deserted island with you along with my three favorite cd's ambivalent yet in your

bed we've yet to acknowledge what really happened

slid into the ditch I have this overwhelming loss of ambition we said let's name thirty good reasons why

we shouldn't be together I started by saying things like "you smoke" "you live in new jersey (too far)"

you started saying things like "you belong to the world" all of which could have been easily

refuted but the conversation was hypothetical I am totally short of breath for you why can't you shut

your stuff off..... i'm in the front row the front row with popcorn I get to see you see you close up

and I laughed until my lungs hurt I love how you bust my chops you don't always

feel seen sometimes you feel erasable unfortunately I cannot reciprocate in my

current state I think we should be careful of how much time we spend together

........for a while i'm speaking you know how much you hate to be interrupted maybe spend some

time alone to fill up your proverbial cup so that it doesn't always have to be about you i've been wanting

your undivided attention I like the fact that you're nothing like me are you not burdened by the lack of

perspective people have of your charmed life i'm in the front row the front row with

popcorn I get to see you see you close up you never meant to be ungrateful nor held up to

be whipped or wept for certainly not analysed prodded at more ways than one

apparently you've been misrepresented dealing with the concept of arrows being

slung towards your outrageous fortune

hey i'm not mad at you guardian i'm mad at myself for spending so much time with you and your

jeckyl and hydeness i'm glad i figuratively slapped you on the wrist you laughed a wicked laugh

and said "come here let me clip your wings!"(i know he's blood but you can still turn him away you

don't owe him anything) "raise the roof" he yelled "yeah raise the roof!" I yelled back. (unfortunately

you needed a health scare to reprioritize.) no thanks to the soap box. having me rile against them

won't make an ounce of difference...... i'm in the front row the front row with popcorn. I get to see

you see you close up oh the things i've done for you many a sitch a friend a man's

been left for you oh the books i've read for you the tongues i've bitten for you many

a new city for you many a risk taken for you (not a single regret)

-Front Row-Alanis Morissette

Here is a song for people/fans who complain about bands being sellouts.

 

Handbook For The Sellouts - Five Iron Frenzy

 

You found a way to draw a line,

between the world and you.

Faking your idenity it's true.

Did you think the word "alternative",

was only meant for the likes of you?

Do you think that they're too cool now?

Being popular is lame.

You're the one who made them popular,

all their songs are still the same.

 

You found them first,

it made you stand apart, you know?

But then everyone jumped on the same bandwagon,

making you an average Joe,

A lemming for the mediocre,

you were just a plain old joker status quo.

Blame it on the band now.

If you pick them do they bleed?

What's the point in playing what they want,

if you won't let them succed?

 

Do you remember where we all came from?

Do you remember what it's all about?

When you made a point to be objective,

before you started writing Handbook for the Sellout?

 

You sunk your worth in being different,

just to be like your own kind.

You traded in objectiveness,

for the underground you follow blind.

It's just a piece of paper, it says, "In God We Trust"

A little sure felt good

But a lot was not enough

And everybody loved me when I was on a roll

And I thought I had everything

When I held the gold

 

But you're not my god

And you're not my friend

You're not the one that I will walk with in the end

You're not the truth

You're a temporary shot

You ruin people's lives and you don't give a second thought

You're not my god

 

Little white lines on a mirror

Cut neatly in a roll

Medicine that kept me from lookin' in my soul

I thought you were the answer

To all of my despair

And you almost had me six feet down

But I'm still breathin' air

 

'Cause you're not my god

And you're not my friend

You're not the one that I will walk with in the end

You're not the truth

You're a temporary shot

You ruin people's lives and you don't give a second thought

You're not my god

 

From the cradle to the grave

Temptations all around

But no matter how good the fix

It's gonna take you down

Now some call it a weakness

Some call it a sin

But it's all the same behind each game

I see your evil grin

 

But you're not my god

And you're not my friend

You're not the one that I will walk with in the end

You're not the truth

You're a temporary shot

You ruin people's lives and you don't give a second thought

-You're Not My God-Keith Urban

If Only Tonight We Could Sleep - The Cure

 

If only tonight we could sleep

In a bed made of flowers

If only tonight we could fall

In a deathless spell

 

If only tonight we could slide

Into deep black water

And breathe

And breathe...

 

Then an angel would come

With burning eyes like stars

And bury us deep

In his velvet arms

 

And the rain would cry

As our faces slipped away

And the rain would cry

 

Don't let it end...

Well, this pretty much describes me perfectly right now... yea im being an emotional asshole

 

Graham Coxon - Mountain of Regret

 

All my lifetime I've done wrong

Never thinking I belonged

And my problems stay with me

Cause my thoughts lie with she

She was my girlfriend though I was mean

Always there in my hour of need

I took for granted her gentleness

And have to live without her sweet caress

 

And as I light me a cigarette

My heart is falling in my breast

And as I lie me down to rest

There's a mountain of regret

 

I turn my back on her true love

All my friends and the lord above

And my drinking dragged me down

To the bars in Cabbage town

 

And as I light me a cigarette

My heart is falling in my breast

And as I lie me down to rest

There's a mountain of regret

 

And as I sit here feeling low

Wondering why she had to go

I know I see through my disgrace

The perfect beauty of her face

 

And as I light me a cigarette

My heart is falling in my breast

And as I lie me down to rest

There's a mountain of regret

Dredd song - The Cure

 

never say it's over

never say the end

anytime you stop just start again

never say give up

never say give in

you always have to fight to win

 

however much it hurts

however much it takes

believe and all your dreams will all come true

however hard it gets

however much it aches

always believe in me

as i believe in you

 

to never say too late

never say it's done

make me know for real you are the one

the one that never turns

never walks away

the one that i can trust to always stay

 

never say surrender

never say die

you only ever get there if you try

never say give up

never say give in

you always have to fight to win

 

however much it hurts

however much it takes

believe that all your dreams can all come true

however hard it gets

however much it aches

always believe in me

as i believe in you

 

never say if only

never say regret

only the weak remember to forget

never say it's over

never say the end

never say never again

 

however much it hurts

however much it takes

believe and all your dreams will all come true

however hard it gets

however much it aches

believe in me

as i believe in you

One Great City! - The Weakerthans

 

 

late afternoon another day is nearly done

 

a darker grey is breaking through a lighter one

a thousand sharpened elbows in the underground

that hollow hurried sound of feet on polished floor

and in the dollar store the clerk is closing up

and counting loonies trying not to say

i hate winnipeg

 

the driver checks the mirror seven minutes late

crowded riders' restlessness enunciates

the guess who suck, the jets were lousy anyway

the same mood every day

and in the turning lane

someone's stalled again

he's talking to himself

and hears the price of gas repeat his phrase

i hate winnipeg

 

up above us all,

leaning into sky

our golden business boy

will watch the north end die

and sing 'i love this town'

then let his arching wrecking ball proclaim:

"i...hate...winnipeg"

Spoon - Dave Matthews Band

 

 

 

Spoon in spoon

Stirring my coffee

I thought of you

And turned to the gate

On my way came up with the answers

I scratched my head

And the answers were gone

From hand to hand

Wrist to the elbow

Red blood sand

could Dad be God

Crosses cross hung out like a wet rag

Forgive you? Why?

You hung me out to dry

Maybe I'm crazy

But laughing out loud

Makes the pain pass by

And maybe you're a little crazy

But laughing out loud makes

it all subside

Holding, I'm holding

I'm still falling

Spoon in spoon

Stirring my coffee

I thought of this

And turned to the gate

But on my way

Crack

Lightning and thunder

I hid my head

And the storm slipped away

Well maybe I'm crazy

And laughing out loud

Makes it all pass by

And maybe you're a little crazy

And laughing out loud

Makes it all alright

Laughing out loud

From time to time

Minutes and hours

Some move ahead while

Some lag behind

It's like the balloon that

Rise and then vanish

This drop of hope

That falls from his eyes

Spoon in spoon

Stirring my coffee

I think of this

And turn to go away

But as I walk

There're voices behind me saying

Sinners sin

Come now and play

Because I like when artists get into self-reflexive musings on the nature of their art, I love this bit of Bjork - Alarm Call:

 

I want to go on a mountain-top

With a radio and good batteries

And play a joyous tune and

Free the human race

From suffering

 

It doesnt scare me at all

 

I'm no fucking buddhist

But this is enlightenment

^That reminds me how much I love that song, and Hyper-Ballad

 

we live on a mountain

right at the top

there's a beautiful view

from the top of the mountain

every morning i walk towards the edge

and throw little things off

like:

car-parts, bottles and cutlery

or whatever i find lying around

 

it's become a habit

a way

to start the day

 

i go through this

before you wake up

so i can feel happier

to be safe up here with you

 

it's real early morning

no-one is awake

i'm back at my cliff

still throwing things off

i listen to the sounds they make

on their way down

i follow with my eyes 'til they crash

imagine what my body would sound like

slamming against those rocks

 

and when it lands

will my eyes

be closed or open?

 

i'll go through all this

before you wake up

so i can feel happier

to be safe up here with you

Come and see

I swear by now I'm playing time against my troubles

I'm coming slow but speeding

Do you wish a dance and while

I'm in the front

The play on time is won

But the difficulty is coming here

I will go in this way

And find my own way out

I won't tell you to stay

But I'm coming to much more

Me

All at once the ghosts come back

Reeling in you now

What if they came down crushing

Remember when I used to play for

all of the loneliness that nobody

notices now

I'm begging slow I'm coming here

Only waiting I wanted to stay

I wanted to play,

I wanted to love you

I'm only this far

And only tomorrow leads my way

I'm coming waltzing back and

moving into your head

Please, I wouldn't pass this by

I wouldn't take any more than

What sort of man goes by

I will bring water

Why won't you ever be glad

It melts into wonder

I came in praying for you

Why won't you run

in the rain and play

Let the tears splash all over you
