I'm singing in the rain, just singing in the rain
What a glorious feeling, I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds, so dark up above
The sun's in my heart and I'm ready for love

~Singin in the Rain - Gene Kelly
I want to run
I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls
That hold me inside
I want to reach out
And touch the flame
Where the streets have no name

I want to feel sunlight on my face
I see the dust cloud disappear
Without a trace
I want to take shelter from the poison rain
Where the streets have no name

Where the Streets Have No Name - U2
When the sun beats down, and burns the tar up on the rooves
And your shoes get to hot, you wish your tired feet were fireproof
Under the boardwalk, down by the sea
On a blanket with my baby is where I'll be

~Under the Boardwalk - (?)
Cause I’m in too deep, and I’m trying to keep,
Up above in my head, instead of going under.
Cause I’m in too deep, and I’m trying to keep,
Up above in my head, instead of going under.
Instead of going under.

In Too Deep - Sum41
I believe there comes a time
When everything must fall in line
We live and learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by fate

~All Fired Up - Pat Benatar
Watch it spin 'round to a beautiful oblivion
Rendezvous then I'm through with you
I burn burn like a wicker cabinet
chalk white and oh so frail
I see our time had gotten stale

Inside out - Eve 6
Every morning there's a halo hanging from the corner
Of my girlfriends' four-post bed
I know it's not mine, but I'll see if I could use it
For the weekend or a one night stand

~Every Morning - Sugar Ray
You know the future's lookin' brighter
Every mornin' when I get up
Don't be thinkin' 'bout what's not enough, now baby
Just be thinkin' 'bout what we got
Think of all my love, now
I'm gonna give you all I got

Baby hold On - Eddie Money
Never ever have I ever felt so low
When you gonna take me out of this black hole
Never ever have I ever felt so sad
They way I'm feeling, yeah you've got me feeling really bad

~Never Ever - Destiny's Child (?)
Never made it as a wise man
I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing
Tired of living like a blind man
I'm sick of sight without a sense of feeling
And this is how you remind me
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am

How you remind me - Nickleback
Love lift me, wherever you are
Convince me I'm safe in your arms
Love lift me, make sense of it all
Teach me to fly, and don't let me fall

~Love Lift Me - Amanda Marshall

...and that is the last in-class post...we should get back to normal now
Think about it,
There must be higher love
Love looking down from the stars above
Without it, life is wasted time
Look inside your heart I'll look inside mine
Higher Love - (?)
I'm a high night flyer and a rainbow-rider
A straight-shootin son of a gun
Singin joy to the world, all the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

~Joy to the World - 3 Dog Night
Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay you weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Carry on my Wayward Son - Boston
Fly like an eagle, to the sea
Fly like an eagle, let my spirit carry me
I want to fly, till I'm free
Fly, fly, into the future

~Fly Like an Eagle - Seal
I want to get away
I want to fly away
I want to get away
I want to fly away

Fly Away - Lenny Kravitz
There's a hero, if you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid of what you are
There's an answer, if you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know will melt away

~Hero - Mariah Carey
Did you ever know that you're my hero
You're everything I wish I could be
I could fly higher than an eagle
'Cause you are the wind beneath my wings

Wind Beneath my Wings - Bette Midler
Don't speak, I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining, don't tell me 'cause it hurts
It's all ending,
We've gotta stop pretending who we are

~Don't Speak - No Doubt
Up on Cripple Creek, she sends me
If I sprang a leak, she'd mend me
I don't have to speak, she defends me
A lover's dream, if I ever did see one

Up on Cripple Creek - (?)
I won't make promises
That I can't keep
I won't make promises
That I don't mean

~Promises - Def Leppard
Love makes no promises, promises
It's coming after you, I'm letting go of you
And if you've never, never been in love
It makes no promises

Love Makes no Promises - (?)
This is the beginning of a section that Joe and I did in a class earlier this week...

Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is, I never left you
All through my wild days, my mad existence
I kept my promise, don't keep your distance

~Don't Cry for Me Argentina - Evita Broadway Cast

She feels safe now in the bar on Fairfax
And from the stage I can tell that
She can't let go and she can't relax
And just before she hangs her head to cry
I sing to her a lullaby

Lullaby - Shawn Mullins

And even though I know hoe very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star
And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullabye
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there, if love can see us through
Then we'll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

~Somewhere out There - From "An Americal Tail"
Blame it on the rain that was fallin', fallin'.
Blame it on the stars that shine at night.
Whatever you do, don't put the blame on you;
blame it on the rain, yeah, yeah.
You can blame it on the rain.

Blame it on the rain - Millie Vanillie
Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
Every night, every night its just the same
You leave me lonely
Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
All my dreams, all my dreams fall like rain
On a downtown train

~Downtown Train - Rod Stewart
Drove downtown in the rain
nine-thirty on a tuesday night,
just to check out the late-night record shop
call it impulsive, calll it compulsive
call it insane.
But when I'm surrounded I just can't help myself

Brian wilson - Barenaked Ladies
Just take those old records off the shelf
I sit and listen to them by myself
Today's music ain't got the same soul
I like that old time rock n' roll

~Old Time Rock 'n Roll - Bob Segar
give me the beat boys
and free my soul
I want to get lost in you rock and roll
And drift away.

Drift away - Dobie Grey
And they were singing
Bye, bye Miss American Pie
Drove ym Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
And good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
Singin this'll be the day that I die

~American Pie - Don McLean
That's me in the corner
That's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no I've said too much
I haven't said enough
I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

Losing my religion - REM
Black velvet and that little boy's smile
Black velvet and that slow, southern style
A new religion that'll bring you down to your knees
Black velvet if you please

~Black Velvet - Alannah Myles
You say you don't love me
You talk about the other boys
And you laugh in my face
But I know when you're feeling sad and lonely
No other boy can take my place

Cause when I look into your eyes
Our love shines
Our love shines
Like a diamond mine

Diamond Mine - Blue Rodeo

The minute you walked in the joint
I could see you were a man of distinction, a real big spender
Good lookin', so refined
Say wouldn't you like to know what's going on in my mind
So let me get right to the point
I don't pop my cork for every guy I see
Hey big spender, spend a little time with me

~Big Spender - Sweet Charity Broadway Cast (Before Canadian Tire stole it!!)
With time the child draws in
Whis whipping boy done wrong
Deprived of all his thoughts
The young man struggles on and on he's known

The Unforgiven - Metallica
Hey child, stay wilder than the wind
that blows me in tonight

Who do you need, who do you love
When you come undone

~Come Undone - Duran Duran
I need you now
Do you think you can cope
you figured me out
I'm lost and I'm hopeless
Bleeding and broken
though I've never spoken
I come undone

Mad Season - Matchbox 20
Here I am at 6:00 in the morning, still thinking about you
It's still hard at 6:00 in the morning to sleep without you
And I know that it might seem too late for love
Oh, I know....

I need you now, more than words can say
I need you now, I've gotta find a way
I need you now, before I lose my mind
I need you now...

~More than Words can Say - Alias

There's too many men
Too many people
Making too many problems
And not much love to go round
Can't you see
This is a land of confusion

Land of Confusion - Genesis
