  • RB's New and Improved (Hopefully) Song Lyrics Thread

    Thought I'd bring back this oldie but goodie here in the Fun and Games area.

    This is a thread for song lyrics that may have a special meaning to you. Could be any song from any genre.

    My suggestion would be that we quote up to maybe four to six lines (at most) from a given song, rather than posting whole songs.

    Credit song title and artist, if possible.

    Have fun!!!

    To start...

    "She's Living in LA...with my best old ex-friend Ray...guy she said she knew well but sometimes hated..."

    "Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray it might come true...maybe then there wouldn't be a single thing we couldn't do - oh we could be married...and then we'd be happy...Oh wouldn't it be nice..."

    ---The Beach Boys

      Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
      Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
      Well i tried to fake it, i don't mind sayin', i just can't make it

        You know it hurts me
        Way deep inside
        When I turn and look
        And find that you're not there
        I try to convince myself
        That the pain, the pain
        It's still not gone

          May you never take one single breath for granted
          God forbid love ever leave you empty handed

          I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
          Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
          Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance

          And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance,
          I hope you dance

            Where do I take this pain of mine.
            I run but it stays right by my side.
            So tear me open and pour me out
            There's things inside that scream and shout,
            And the pain still hates me
            So hold me until it sleeps.

              I’ll keep looking up
              Awaiting your return
              My greatest fear will be that you will crash and burn
              And I won’t feel your fire
              I’ll be the other hand
              That always holds the line
              Connecting in between your sweet heart and mine
              I’m strung out on that wire

              And I’ll be on the other end
              To hear you when you call
              Angel you were born to fly
              And if you get to high
              I’ll catch you when you fall
              I’ll catch you when you fall

                There's a calm surrender to the rush of day
                When the heat of the rolling world can be turned away
                An enchanted moment, and it sees me through
                It's enough for this restless warrior just to be with you

                And can you feel the love tonight
                It is where we are
                It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
                That we got this far
                And can you feel the love tonight
                How it's laid to rest
                It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
                Believe the very best

                There's a time for everyone if they only learn
                That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn
                There's a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors

                When the heart of this star-crossed voyager beats in time with yours

                  When youre down and troubled
                  And you need a helping hand
                  And nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
                  Close your eyes and think of me
                  And soon I will be there
                  To brighten up even your darkest nights.

                  You just call out my name,
                  And you know whereever I am
                  Ill come running, oh yeah baby
                  To see you again.
                  Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
                  All you have to do is call
                  And Ill be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
                  Youve got a friend...

                    And I'll be your friend

                      Up and down that lonely road of faith
                      I have been there
                      Unprepared for the storms and the tides that rise
                      I've realized one thing, how much I love you
                      And it hurts to see, see you cryin'
                      I believe we can make it through the winds of change

                          Children of Paradise -- Justin Hayward

                          Like the crashing of a wave
                          On the shores of consciousness
                          We’re alive and
                          We’re awake to the world
                          And with the gift of love we’re blessed

                          Coz we can be
                          Yes we can be
                          We can be
                          Children of Paradise
                          Children of Paradise

                          In the twinkling of an eye
                          Or the turning of a page
                          Comes the moment when
                          Our time has arrived
                          We can never be the same

                          We can be
                          Yes we can be
                          We can be
                          Children of Paradise
                          Children of Paradise

                          And all I know
                          Is we’re still climbing up that hill
                          And all we need to sustain us
                          Is the love of love
                          The light of life
                          And the faith to know we can heal
                          Like Children

                          Through the violence and the rage
                          By the Grace of love be still
                          And the spirit that breaks free from the cage
                          Is the one they cannot kill

                            Through all those
                            Complex years
                            I thought I was alone
                            I didn't care to look around
                            And make this world my own
                            And when she died
                            I should've cried and spared myself some pain...
                            Left me incomplete
                            All alone as the memories still remain

                              Mama tries hard to pretend
                              That things will get better again
                              Somehow she's keepin' it all inside her
                              But finally the tears fill our eyes
                              And I know that somewhere tonight
                              She knows how much we really miss her

                              Shannon is gone
                              I hope she's drifting out to sea
                              She always loved to swim away
                              Maybe she'll find an island
                              With a shaded tree
                              Just like the one in our back yard ...
                              Just like the one in our back yard .........

                                  Posion - Something To Believe In

                                  (by the way in case anyone didn't know this this song is dedicated to Bret Michales father a Korean vet)

                                  Well I see him on the tv
                                  Preachin bout the promised land
                                  He tells me to believe in jesus
                                  And steals the money from my hand

                                  Some say he was a good man
                                  But lord I think he sinned, yeah

                                  Twenty-two years of mental tears
                                  Cries a suicidal vietnam vet
                                  Who fought a losing war on a foreign shore
                                  To find his country didnt want him back

                                  Their bullets took his best friend in saigon
                                  Our lawyers took his wife and kids, no regrets
                                  In a time I dont remember
                                  In a war he cant forget

                                  He cried forgive me for what Ive done there
                                  Cause I never meant the things I did

                                  Chorus:
                                  And give me something to believe in
                                  If theres a lord above
                                  And give me something to believe in
                                  Oh, lord arise

                                  My best friend died a lonely man
                                  In some palm springs hotel room
                                  I got the call last christmas eve
                                  And they told me the news

                                  I tried all night not to break down and cry
                                  As the tears rolled down my face
                                  I felt so cold and empty
                                  Like a lost soul out of place

                                  And the mirror, mirror on the wall
                                  Sees my smile it fades again

                                  Chorus

                                  Sometimes I wish to God I didnt know now
                                  The things I didnt know then
                                  Road you gotta take me home

                                  Solo

                                  I drive by the homeless sleeping on a cold dark street
                                  Like bodies in an open grave
                                  Underneath the broken old neon sign
                                  That used to read jesus saves

                                  A mile away live the rich folks
                                  And I see how theyre living it up
                                  While the poor they eat from hand to mouth
                                  The rich is drinkin from a golden cup

                                  And it just makes me wonder
                                  Why so many lose, so few win

                                  Chorus

                                  You take the high road
                                  And Ill take the low road

                                  Sometimes I wish to God I didnt know now
                                  The things I didnt know then

                                  And give me something to believe in

                                    Have they laughed too much
                                    Do their dry voices crack
                                    talking of things gone by
                                    have they cried too much
                                    A tear or two still always seems
                                    To cloud the eye

                                    They tremble as they watch the old silver clock
                                    When day is through
                                    tick tock oh so slow
                                    It says yes it says no
                                    It says I wait for you
                                    Old Folks - John Denver

                                    For the children and the flowers
                                    Are my sisters and my brothers
                                    Their laughter and their loveliness
                                    Could clear a cloudy day

                                    Like the music of the mountains
                                    And the colours of the rainbow
                                    They're a promise of the future
                                    And a blessing for today
                                    Rhymes And Reasons - John Denver
                                    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

                                      "Can't Repeat" The Offspring

                                      I woke the other day
                                      And saw my world has changed
                                      The past is over but tomorrow‘s wishful thinking
                                      I can‘t hold on what‘s been done
                                      I can‘t grab on what‘s to come
                                      And I‘m just wishing I could stop, but

                                      Life goes on
                                      Come of age
                                      Can‘t hold on

                                      Time rolls on
                                      Wipe these eyes
                                      Yesterday laughs
                                      Tomorrow cries

                                      Memories are bittersweet
                                      good times we can‘t repeat
                                      Those days are gone and we can never get them back
                                      Now we must move ahead
                                      Despite our fear and dread
                                      We‘re all just wishing we could stop, but

                                      Life goes on
                                      Come of age
                                      Can‘t hold on

                                      Tomorrow cries

                                      With all our joys and fears
                                      Wrapped in forgotten years
                                      The past is laughing as today just slips away
                                      Time tears down what we‘ve made
                                      And sets another stage
                                      And I‘m just wishing we could stop

                                      Life goes on

                                        Dear when you smiled at me, I heard a melody
                                        It haunted me from the start
                                        Something inside of me started a symphony
                                        Zing! Went the strings of my heart

                                        'Twas like a breath of spring, I heard a robin sing
                                        About a nest set apart
                                        All nature seemed to be in perfect harmony
                                        Zing! Went the strings of my heart

                                        Your eyes made skies seem blue again
                                        What else could I do again
                                        But keep repeating through and through
                                        "I love you, love you"

                                        I still recall the thrill, guess I always will
                                        I hope 'twill never depart
                                        Dear, with your lips to mine, a rhapsody devine
                                        Zing! Went the strings of my heart
