The Lyrics Thread-Part II
PostPosted: Wed 22 Oct, 2003  Reply with quote

Part I can be found Here!

A CRY IN THE NIGHT (VIRGIN STEELE)

A cry in the night I'm still hearing
No my love is gone I must be dreaming
Lost in the mist of passions strange
Wiping the tears I recall the pain
Of love and laughter, joy now slain
When your world turns cold won't you call my name

Come on
Cry out in the dark
I'll be by your side to give you warmth
And light and shield you from the night
Hold on, hold on, we'll fan the flames of love
Together again, just you and I

I watched the faces in the fire
No emotion was ever there
If this is truth then who's the liar?
Your eyes are blind, they don't love you
You're just an amusement, thought of with disdain
But I'm still waiting, won't you call my name

You say your heart is open to loves
Call and you can't refuse it's refrain
But you don't hear the real sirens song
Echoing it's refrain, my love still remains so

I read that this is a song actually about lucid dreaming.
I haven't actually heard it yet, but here are the lyrics.


Higher Lyrics
Creed



When dreaming I'm guided through another world
Time and time again
At sunrise I fight to stay asleep
'Cause I don't want to leave the comfort of this place
'Cause there's a hangar, a longing to escape
From the life I live when I'm awake


[Chorus]


So let's go there
Let's make our escape
Come on let's go there
Let's ask can we stay
Can you take me higher
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me higher
To a place with golden streets


Although I would like our world to change
it helps me to appreciate those nights and those dreams
But my friend I'd sacrifice all those nights
If I could make the earth and my dreams the same
The only difference is to let love replace all our hate


[Chorus]


So lets go there
Let's make our escape
Come on let's go there
Let's ask can we stay
Can you take me higher
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me higher
To a place with golden streets


So lets go there
So lets go there
Come on lets go there
Let's ask can we stay


Up high I feel like I'm alive
for the very first time
Up high I feel like I'm strong enough
to take these dreams and make them mine
Up high I feel like I'm strong enough
to take these dreams and make them mine


Can you take me higher
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me higher
To a place with golden streets


Can you take me higher
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me higher
To a place with golden streets

I've heard that song numerous times, Kent, and every time I think to myself that it might be about lucid dreaming. That, or this guy has some really satisfying normal dreams. wink

I was actually going to post those same lyrics here a couple of weeks ago, but forgot for some reason.

Anyway, the word 'hanger' up there should be 'hunger'.

I saw "An American Werewolf in London" again last week. It's really funny how they use the moon lyrics in the film. I couldn't resist posting them here.

Bad Moon Rising
I see the bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightning.
I see bad times today.

[Chorus:]
Don't go around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

I hear hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.

[Chorus]

All right!

Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we're in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

___________________________________________
Blue Moon

Blue Moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Blue Moon
You knew just why I was there for
You heard me say a prayer for
Someone I really could care for

And then there suddenly appear before
The only one my arms could ever hold
And then somebody whisper
Please adore me
And when I looked the moon
Had turned to gold

Blue moon
Now I am no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own


_____________________________________________

Moondance Lyrics

Well, it's a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

Chorus:
Can I just have one more Moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with you, my love

Well, I wanna make love to you tonight
I can't wait 'til the morning has come
And I know that the time is just right
And straight into my arms you will run
And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure that you're never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true, dear
There and then I will make you my own
And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside
And I know how much you want me that you can't hide

Chorus

Repeat 1st Verse

One more Moondance with you in the moonlight
On a magic night
La, la, la, la in the moonlight
On a magic night
Can't I just have one more dance with you my love

Moogle went Moon Crazy 8D

I have some more ^^

Pet by A Perfect Circle

Don't fret precious I'm here
Step away from the window
And go back to sleep

Lay your head down child
I won't let the boogeyman come
Count the bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums
Pay no mind to the rabble
Pay no mind to the rabble
Head down, go to sleep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind what other voices say
They don't care about you
Like I do, like I do
Safe from pain and truth and choice
And other poison devils
See, they don't give a f**k about you
Like I do
Just stay with me
Safe and ignorant
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Lay your head down child
I won't let the boogeyman come
Count the bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums
Pay no mind to the rabble
Pay no mind to the rabble
Head down, go to sleep
To the rhythm of the war drums

I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and all your demons
I'll be the one to protect you from
A will to survive and a voice of reason
I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and your choices, son
They're one and the same
I must isolate you
Isolate and save you from yourself

Swayin' to the rhythm of the new world order
Count the bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drum
The boogeymen cometh
The boogeymen cometh
Keep your head down
Go to sleep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Stay with me
Safe and ignorant
Just stay with me
I'll hold you and protect you from the other ones
The evil ones
Don't love you son
Go back to sleep

This is just one of the many favorites of Floyd siiw

Fearless By Pink Floyd

You say the hill's too steep to climb
Climb it.
You say you'd like to see me try
Climbing.

You pick the place and I'll choose the time
And I'll climb
That hill in my own way.
Just wait a while for the right day.
And as I rise above the tree lines and the clouds
I look down, hearing the sound of the things you've said today.

Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd
Smiling.
Merciless the magistrate turns 'round
Frowning.

And who's the fool who wears the crown?
And go down,
in your own way
And every day is the right day
And as you rise above the fear-lines in his brow
You look down, hearing the sound of the faces in the crowd.

What I am

I'm not aware of too many things,
I know what I know if you know what I mean.
Philosophy is the talk on a cereal box.
Religion is the smile on a dog.

I'm not aware of too many things,
I know what I know if you know what I mean.
Choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep.


What I am is what I am.
Are you what you are - or what?


I'm not aware of too many things,
I know what I know if you know what I mean.
Philosophy is a walk on the slippery rocks.
Religion is a light in the fog.


I'm not aware of too many things,
I know what I know if you know what I mean.
Choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep.


What I am is what I am.
Are you what you are - or what?
Don't let me get too deep.

I was thinking that this might be a good song to MWILD to...
Because it mentions the music taking control, you gotta do it (WILD/LD)...


Billy More
Come On And Do It


Come on and do it
Do it.

Come on and do it
Come on and let your body go
When let the music take control
You gotta do it.
Come on and do it
And let the feelings get you high
But in saturday night life
Come on and do it.

Saturday night life
I love to live it
I love to live my crazy life.
Around the world
I always love to feel it
I love to live it through the lights.

From Milano to Paris
Going to New York city
Everybody hit down
And dance with me.
From Ibiza on tv
Burn in London and Italy
Everybody come on and dance with me.

Come on and do it
Come on and let your body go
When let the music take control
You gotta do it.
Come on and do it
And let the feelings get you high
But in saturday night life
You gotta do it.

Come on and do it
Come on and do it
Come on and do it
Come on and do it
Come on and do it.

Around the world...
Saturday night life
Around the world

Saturday night life
I love to live it
I love to live my crazy life
Around the world
I always love to feel it
I love to live it through the lights.

From Milano to Paris
Going to New York city
Everybody hit down
And dance with me.
From Ibiza on tv
Burn in London and Italy
Everybody come on
And dance with me.

Come on do it
Come on and let your body go
When let the music take control
You gotta do it.
Come on and do it
And the feelings get you high
But in saturday night life
You gotta do it.
Come on and do it
Come on and do it
Come on and do it
Come on and do it
Come on and do it.

Come on and do it
Come on and let your body go
When let the music take control
You gotta do it.
Come on and do it
And let the feelings get you high
But in saturday night life
You gotta do it.

This is one of my favorite songs. I could listen to it over and over again!

Solomon Burke:
Cry To Me

When your baby leaves you all alone
And nobody calls you on the phone
Ah, don't you feel like crying?
Don't you feel like crying?
Well here I am my honey
Oh, come on you cry to me.

When you're all alone in your lonely room
And there's nothing but the smell of her perfume
Ah don't you feel like crying
Don't you feel like crying?
Ah don't you feel like crying?
Come on, come on cry to me.

Well nothing could be sadder
Than a glass of wine, all alone
Loneliness, loneliness, it's such a waste of time
Oh-oh yeah

You don't ever have to walk alone, oh you see
Oh come on, take my hand and baby won't you walk with me?
Oh ya

When you're waiting for a voice to come
In the night and there is no one
Ah don't you feel like crying? (cry to me)
Don't you feel like crying? (cry to me)
Ah don't you feel like a-ca-ca-cra-co-cra-co-cra-cra, (cry to me)
Cra-co-cra-co-cra-cra crying? (cry to me)
Ah don't you feel like a-cra-co-cra-co-cra-cra,
Cra-co-cra-co-cra-cra crying?...

Indian Reservation
Artists: Paul Revere and the Raiders


They took the whole Cherokee nation
Put us on this reservation
Took away our ways of life
The tomahawk and the bow and knife
Took away our native tongue
And taught their English to our young
And all the beads we made by hand
Are nowadays made in Japan

Cherokee people, Cherokee tribe
So proud to live, so proud to die

They took the whole Indian nation
Locked us on this reservation
Though I wear a shirt and tie
I’m still part redman deep inside

Cherokee people, Cherokee tribe
So proud to live, so proud to die

But maybe someday when they learn
Cherokee nation will return, will return, will return, will return, will return

OUR HOUSE Maddness

Father wears his Sunday best
Mother's tired she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs
Sister's sighing in her sleep
Brother's got a date to keep
He can't hang around

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our ...

Our house it has a crowd
There's always something happening
And it's usually quite loud
Our mum she's so house-proud
Nothing ever slows her down
And a mess is not allowed

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our ...

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our ...
Something tells you that you've got to get away from it

Father gets up late for work
Mother has to iron his shirt
Then she sends the kids to school
Sees them off with a small kiss
She's the one they're going to miss
In lots of ways

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our ...

I remember way back then when everything was true and when
We would have such a very good time such a fine time
Such a happy time
And I remember how we'd play simply waste the day away
Then we'd say nothing would come between us two dreamers

Father wears his Sunday best
Mother's tired she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs
Sister's sighing in her sleep
Brother's got a date to keep
He can't hang around

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our street

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our ...

Our house, was our castle and our keep
Our house, in the middle of our street

Our house, that was where we used to sleep
Our house, in the middle of our street

Our house, in the middle of our street

LOVESTRUCK Maddness

Staggering home,
the headlights throw a shadow up and upon
friends and loved ones that have done no wrong
but no longer mean anything to me
am I mummbling on into a crystal glass that echoes a song
the entisement invites you along
A path of exterior colour
But come the morning, shivering and contorting
to border on the brink, for just another sink
Oh, take me down, for one more round

Oh, involve me in libations
stick a rock in my foundation
pickle my relations
put me on probation
I'll take you down for one last round

Lovestruck, I've fallen for a lamppost, given her my up most
spilling out my deepest feelings
now all I want to do, is snuggle up to you
a night cap in the early morning dew

Look! what have I become?
distancing myself so far and from
but gazing up, I wave the night boat on
for now its heaven in deepest Tottenham

what have I done to deserve this fate?
It's all gone wrong
even the cab fares been and gone
now I'm lagging in deepest Tottenham

frightening, frightening, strike me down with lightning

I've given in to fightling
now all I want to do, is get closer to you
a night cap in the early morning dew

I love reading Tool's lyrics, i always get little bumps, check it out wink

Parabola from TOOL

We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment,
We are choosing to be here right now. Hold on, stay inside
This holy reality, this holy experience.
Choosing to be here in

This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in
This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal
All this pain is an illusion.

Alive, I

In this holy reality, in this holy experience. Choosing to be here in

This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in
This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal
All this pain is an illusion.

Twirling round with this familiar parable.
Spinning, weaving round each new experience.
Recognize this as a holy gift and celebrate this chance to be alive and breathing.

This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality.
Embrace this moment. Remember. We are eternal.
All this pain is an illusion.



Lateralus by TOOL

Black then white are all I see in my infancy.
red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
lets me see.
As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn beyond the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must
Feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Black then white are all I see in my infancy.
red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
lets me see there is so much more
and beckons me to look through to these infinite possibilities.
As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn outside the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
Withering my intuition leaving all these opportunities behind.

Feed my will to feel this moment urging me to cross the line.
Reaching out to embrace the random.
Reaching out to embrace whatever may come.

I embrace my desire to
feel the rhythm, to feel connected
enough to step aside and weep like a widow
to feel inspired, to fathom the power,
to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain,
to swing on the spiral
of our divinity and still be a human.

With my feet upon the ground I lose myself
between the sounds and open wide to suck it in,
I feel it move across my skin.
I'm reaching up and reaching out,
I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.

Spiral out. Keep going, going...


I had to put two songs One wasnt just enough grin

U2- Sunday Bloody Sunday

I can't believe the news today
Oh, I can't close my eyes
And make it go away

How long...
How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long...
'Cause tonight... we can be as one / Tonight
Tonight / Tonight

Broken bottles under children's feet
Bodies strewn across the dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, Bloody Sunday / Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday / Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Alright let's go

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
Torn apart

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

How long...
How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long...
'Cause tonight... we can be as one tonight
Tonight, Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Tonight, Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe your tears away
I'll wipe your tears away
I'll wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die

The real battle yet begun
To claim the victory Jesus won
On...

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Sunday Bloody Sunday...

I have been known to post three It's hard to stop when you start thinking about the different lyrics that you like.

InfectionO ....IMO the best line of the lyrics was
The real battle yet begun
To l claim the victory Jesus won

Mama Told Me Not To Come Lyrics by Tom Jones


Want some whiskey in your water?
Sugar in your tea?
What's all these crazy questions they're askin' me?
This is the craziest party that could ever be
Don't turn on the lights 'cause I don't wanna see

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
She said "That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"

Some radio is blastin'
someone's knockin' at the door
I'm lookin' at my girlfriend
She just passed out on the floor
I've seen so many things
I ain't never seen before
Don't know what it is
I don't wanna see no more

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come (Mama told me)
She said "That ain't the way to have fun, no" (no, no)
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"

Mama told me, mama told me
Mana told me, mama told me
Mama told me not to come (Mama told me not to come)
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, no, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son" (Mama told me)

Mama told me, mama told me
Mama told me, mama told me
Mama told me not to come (Mama told me not to come)
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun" (oh no, no)...


Stuck In The Middle With You

Well, I don't know why I came here tonight
I got the feeling that something ain't right
I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair
And I'm wondering how I'll get down those stairs

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you

Yes, I'm stuck in the middle with you
And I'm wondering what it is I should do
It's so hard to keep this smile from my face
Losing control, and I'm all over the place

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you

Well, you started off with nothing
And you're proud that you're a self-made man
And your friends they all come crawling
Slap you on the back and say
Please, please

Trying to make some sense of it all
But I can see it makes no sense at all
Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor?
'Cause I don't think that I can take anymore

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you

And you started off with nothing
And you're proud that you're a self-made man
And your friends they all come crawling
Slap you on the back and say
Please, please

Yeah, I don't know why I came here tonight
I got the feeling that something ain't right
I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair
And I'm wondering how I'll get down those stairs

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you
Yes, I'm struck in the middle with you
Stuck in the middle with you
