Hooray for a child that makes it through
If there's any way because the answer lies in you
They're laid to rest before they know just what to do
Their souls are lost because they could never find...

What's this life for

~ What's this Life For - Creed
Someday, when my life has passed me by,
I'll lay around and wonder why you were always there for me.
One way, in the eyes of a passer by,I look
around for another try, and fade away.
Just close your eyes and I'll take you there.This place is warm, without a care.
We'll take a swim in the deep blue sea, I go to leave and you reach for me

Someday - Sugar Ray
Moon river, wider than a mile,
I'm crossing you in style, someday.

Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker,
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way.

Two drifters, off to see the world,
There's such a lot of world to see.

We're after the same rainbow's end,
Waitin' 'round the bend,
My huckleberry friend,
Moon river, and me!

~ Moon River - Audrey Hepburn (Breakfast at Tiffany's)

I saw you as you walked across my room.
You looked out the window, you looked at the moon.
And you sat on the corner of my bed, and
you smoked with the ghost in the back of my head.

Do you eat, sleep, do you breathe me anymore?
Do you sleep, do you count sheep anymore?
Do you sleep anymore?

Do you sleep - Lisa Loeb
I closed my eyes, drew back the curtain
To see for certain, what I thought I knew
Far, far away, someone was weeping
But the world was sleeping
Any dream will do

~ Any Dream Will Do - Donny Osmond (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat)
Don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream would never do
I'd still miss you baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing

I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing - Aerosmith
If I could tell the world just one thing it would be, we're all okay
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful and useless in times like these
I won't me made useless, only idle with depsair
I tell myself around the world, they'll light the darkness most feared

My hands, they are my own, no they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And, I am never broken...

~ Hands - Jewel
she say it’s cold outside and she hands me my raincoat
she’s always worried about things like that
she says it’s all gonna end and it might as well be my fault
and she only sleeps when it’s raining
and she screams and her voice is straining

3 am - Matchbox 20
He's a cold-hearted snake, look into his eyes
Uh oh, he's been telling lies
He's a loverboy at play, he don't play by rules
Oh, oh, girl don't play the fool now

~ Cold-Hearted Snake - Paula Abdul
Beware of the hand shake that hides a snake
I'm telling you
Beware, Beware of the pat on the back
It just might hold you back
Smiling face, smiling faces

Smiling faces - (?)

Thursday, November 08, 2001

Lying here with you, listening to the rain
Smiling just to see the smile upon your face
And these are the moments, I thank God that I'm alive
These are the moments I'll remember all my life

I've found all I've waited for, and I could not ask for more

~ I Could not Ask for More - Edwin McCain
Well this is not for real, afraid to feel
I just had to fall, don't ask for more
I'm wasting my time
I'm wasting my time

Wasting my Time - Default
Would it be my fault if I could turn you on
Would it be so bad if I could turn you on
When I kiss your mouth, I want to taste it
Turn it upside down, don't want to waste it

~ Mouth - Meryl Bainbridge
Hey there pretty girl can I kiss you?
With all you've said to me I think I'll miss you
And she said, "No one can kiss me while people scream
They're screaming for me"

One gun added on to the one gun
One gun added on on on
One gun added on to the one gun
One gun added on on on

One Gun - 54:40
Yeah, nothing's gonna make it happen, take the world in a love embrace
Buy all of your guns at once and explode into space
Like a true nature's child, we were born, born to be wild
We could climb so high, I never wanna die

Born to be wild, born to be wild

~ Born to be Wild - Steppenwolf
Sometimes you know
And when we come we come too late
I often think that we were born to hate
Get up and see the sarcasm in my eyes
And when we come we always come too late
I often think that we were born to hate
Get up and see the sarcasm in my eyes

Millenium - Robbie WIlliams
Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I heard of, once in a lullabye
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

~ Somewhere Over the Rainbow - Judy Garland
I'll take those long nights, impossible odds
Keeping my eye to the keyhole
If it takes all that to be just what I am
I'm gonna be a blue collar man

Blue Collar Man - Styx
And I will walk five hundred miles
And I will walk five hundred more
Just to be the man who'll walk a thousand miles
To fall down at your door

~ I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) - The Proclaimers

Wednesday, November 07, 2001

I can never understand what went thru my mind
I didn't stop to see what I had done.
Had to keep on driving deep into the night
the miles between would somehow put it right

Dreaming while you sleep - Genesis
It's been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away

~ Nothing Compares to You - Sinead O'Connor
Sing for the day sing for the moment
Sing for the time of your life
Come for an hour stay for a moment
Stay for the rest of your life

Sing for the day - Styx

When Irish eyes are smiling, sure it's like a morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter, you can hear the angels sing!
When Irish eyes are happy, all the world seems bright and gay,
And when Irish eyes are smiling, sure they steal your heart away.

~ When Irish Eyes are Smiling - Irish Traditional
I'd like to close my eyes and go numb
But there's a cold wind coming from the top of the highest high-rise today
It's not a breeze cause it blows hard
Yes and it wants me to discard the humanity I know
Watch the warmth blow away

The Warmth - Incubus
Is it in his face: Oh no, it's just his charms
In his warm embrace: Oh no, it's just his arms
If you wanna know if he loves you so
It's in his kiss...that's where it is

~ It's in His Kiss - The Supremes
When the day turns into the last day of all time
I can say I hope you are in these arms of mine
And when the night falls before that day I will cry
I will cry tears of joy cuz after you all one can do is die, oh

Could you be the most beautiful girl in the world?
Could you be?
It's plain to see you're the reason that God made a girl
Oh, yes you are

The most beautiful girl in the world - Prince
The sailors say Brandy, you're a fine girl
What a good wife you would be
But my life, my love and my lady
Is the sea

~ Brandy -
I drown without a sea
Lung fills with sorrow, lungs fill with misery
Inhaling the deep dark blue
Oh woah is me
Such a burden to be
The poor mistreated me

Poor Twisted me - Metallica
Some say love, it is a river, that drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor, that leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower, and you, its only seed.

~ The Rose - Bette Midler
And she called me her ugly American
And I would call her my Canadian flower
And I don't think that we'll ever get there again
We had such power
And she would call me her ugly American
And I'll remember my Canadian rose
Especially when the fall comes to Burlington
We were in so close

Canadian Rose - Blues Traveler

Monday, November 05, 2001

Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grave
Ooh, the more I get of you, stranger than fears, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grave

~ Kiss From a Rose - Seal
So kiss me and smile for me.
Tell me that you'll wait for me.
Hold me like you'll never let me go.
I'm leaving on a jet plane,
Don't know when I'll be back again,
Oh babe, I hate to go.

Leaving on a jet plane - Chantal Kreviazuk
And if that's how you're gonna leave, straight out from underneath
Then we'll see who's sorry now
And if that's how it's gonna stand well, you know you've been dependent on
The one you're leaving now

~ Leave - Matchbox 20
Then I saw her face
now I'm a believer
not a trace, of doubt in my mind
I'm in love, I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her if I tried

I'm a believer - Smashmouth

You're everywhere to me
When I close my eyes it's you I see
You're everything I know that makes me believe
I'm not alone

~ Everywhere - Michelle Branch
When lonely days turn to lonely nights
you take a trip to the city lights
And take the long way home
Take the long way home

You never see what you want to see
Forever playing to the gallery
You take the long way home
Take the long way home

Take the long way home - Supertramp
One long look back at Birmingham

'Cause there's another chance, and someday soon
Shining like the Alabama moon
She's looking for the promised land
Out beyond the lights of Birmingham

~ Birmingham - Amanda Marshall
I can't say I miss my old dog much
and I've never looked back since I left home long ago
but I hoped a trip into the country
would help remind me all the things I used to know

Winter song - Crash Test Dummies
It feels like home to me
It feels like home to me
If feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

It feels like home to me
It feels like home to me
If feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

~ Feels Like Home - The Rankin Family (?)
She's blood flesh and bone
No tucks or silicone
She's touch, smell, sight, taste and sound

But somehow I can't believe
That anything should happen
I know where I belong
And nothing's gonna happen

'Cause she's so high

She's so high - Tal Bachman
I am ten feet high on you
I am wider than the ocean
And deeper than the moon for you
Ten feet high on you

~Ten Feet High - Blaise Pascal
Then I'm walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel

Walking in Memphis - Marc Cohn
Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
I pumped a lot of chain down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of a city
Until I hitched a ride on a riverboat queen

Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary keep on burning
Rollin, rollin, rollin on the river

~ Proud Mary - Ike and Tina Turner
I spent a day by the river
it was quiet and the wind stood still
I spent some time with nature
to remind me of all thats real
it's funny how silence speaks sometimes when your alone
and remember that you feel

Faceless man - Creed
And ever since the day
You put my heart in motion
Baby I realize that there's
Just no getting over you

~Baby, Baby - Sophie B. Hawkins
the sound of your footsteps
telling me that you're near
your soft gentle motion, baby
brings out the need in me that no-one can hear, except

in my midnight confessions
when I tell all the world that I love you
in my midnight confessions
when I say all the things that I want to
I love you

Midnight Connfessions - The Grass Roots
How long can this go on, tell me what is wrong
And maybe there's a way, that we can work it out

There must be some kind of way that we can make it right
But I just can't do it all without you

~Without You - Van Halen
I don’t know if I’m gonna have to redesign my mind
But tonight I made a wish and I sure hope that it comes true
Cause it’s been too long without you
It’s been too long

I wish you would - Train
