Well, we were just another band out of Boston
On the road to try to make ends meet
Playin' all the bars, sleepin' in our cars
And we practiced right on out in the street
No, we didn't have much money
We barely made enough to survive
But when we got up on stage and got ready to play
People came alive.

Rock And Roll Band - Boston
I used to dream that I would meet a prince
But God Almighty, have you seen what's hapened since

Master of the house, isn't worth my spit
Comforter, philosopher and lifelong shit
Cunning little brain, regular bold hair
Thinks he's quite a lover, but there's not much there

Tell me what a cruel trick of nature
Landed me with such a louse
Tell me how I've lasted
Living with this bastard in the house

~ Master of the House - Les Miserables Broadway Cast
Welcome to your life
There's no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you
Acting on your best behaviour
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It's my own design
It's my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help make the most
Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

There's a room where the light won't find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do I'll be right behind you

So glad we've almost made it
So sad they had fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can't stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world
Say that you'll never, never, never need it
One headline why believe it ?
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

Everybody wants to Rule the World - Tears for Fears
So you could se my bra underneath my shirt
Watch the wind underneath my skirt
But that ain't the picture, it's just a part
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

~ Everybody's Got a Story - Amanda Marshall
I stand accused before you
I have no tears to cry
And you will never break me
Until the day I die

A criminal mind
Is all I, all I've ever had
ask one who's known
me if I'm really so bad
I am

Criminal Mind - Gowan
I've been a bad, bad girl
I've been careless with a delicate man
And it's a sad, sad world
When a girl will break a boy just because she can

Don't you tell me to deny it
I've done wrong and I wanna suffer for my sins
I've come to you 'cause I need guidance to be true
And I just don't know where I can begin

What I need is a good defense
'Cause I'm feeling like a criminal
And I need to be redeemed to the one I've sinned against
Because he's all I ever knew of love

~ Criminal - Fiona Apple
Shot through the heart
And you're to blame
You give love a bad name

I play my part
And you play your games
You give love, a bad name.

You Give Love a Bad Name - Bon Jovi
Early morning, April four
A shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life,
But they could not take your pride

In the name of love,
What more in the name of love?
In the name of love,
What more in the name of love?

~ Pride (In the Name of Love) - U2
Here come the woman
With the look in her eye
Raised on leather
With flesh on her mind

Words as weapons
Sharper than knives
Makes you wonder how the other half die
How the other half die
Make you wonder

Here come the man with the look in his eye
Fed on nothing but full of pride
Look at them go, look at them kick
Makes you wonder how the other half live

The devil inside
The devil inside
Every single one of us
The devil inside

Devil inside - INXS
Johnny, you've resined up your bow and play your fiddle hard
'Cause hell's broke loose in Georgia and the devil deals the cards
And if you win, you'll get this shiny fiddle made of gold
But if you lose, the devil gets your soul

~ The Devil Went Down to Georgia - Charlie Daniel's Band
I won't take no prisoners, won't spare no lives
Nobody's putting up a fight
I got my bell, I'm gonna take you to hell
I'm gonna get you, Satan get you

Hell's Bells
Yeah, Hell's Bells
You got me ringing Hell's Bells
My temperature's high, Hell's Bells

Hells Bells - AC/DC
Ask me how do I feel, ask me now that we're cozy and clinging
Well sire, all I can say is if I were a bell I'd be ringing
From the moment we kissed tonight, that's the way I've just got to behave,
Boy, if I were a lamp I'd light, and if I were a banner I'd wave

~ If I Were a Bell - Guys and Dolls Broadway Cast
They reach into your room
Just feel their gentle touch
When all hope is gone
Sad songs say so much

Sad Songs (Say so much) - Elton John

I close my eyes when I get too sad,
I think thoughts that I know are bad
Close my eyes and I'll count to ten
Hope it's over when I open them
I want the things that I had before
Like a Star Wars poster on my bedroom door
I wish I could count to ten
Make everything be wonderful again

~ Wonderful - Everclear
It's late in the evening
She's wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde hair
And then she asks me
Do I look alright
And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight

We go a party
And everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady
That's walking around with me
And then she asks me
Do you feel alright
And I say yes, I feel wonderful tonight

I feel wonderful
Because I see the love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize
How much I love you

Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton
I want to lay you down on a bed of roses
While tonight I sleep on a bed of nails
I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
Lay you down on a bed of roses

~ Bed of Roses - Bon Jovi
See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you

Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you

With or without you - U2
L.A. proved too much for the man,
So he's leavin' the life he's come to know,
He said he's goin' back to find
Ooh, what's left of his world,
The world he left behind
Not so long ago.

He's leaving,
On that midnight train to Georgia,
And he's goin' back
To a simpler place and time.
And I'll be with him
On that midnight train to Georgia,
I'd rather live in his world
Than live without him in mine.

~ Midnight Train to Georgia - Gladys Knight and the Pips
Just a small town girl, livin' in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin' anywhere
Just a city boy, born and raised in south Detroit
He took the midnight train goin' anywhere

Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon
"When you coming home son?", "I don't know when,
But we'll get together then, Dad. You know we'll have a good time then"

~ Cat's in the Cradle - Harry Chapin
I´m breaking through
I´m bending spoons
I´m keeping flowers in full bloom
I´m looking for answers from the great beyond

The great Beyond - REM
I love myself today, not like yesterday
I'm cool, I'm calm, I'm gonna be ok, uh huh
I love myself today, not like yesterday
Take another look at me now
Cause it's your last look, your last look forever

~ I Love Myself Today - Bif Naked
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

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, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

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

Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2
I can see you, your world keeps shining in the sun
I see you walking real slow and the sun rises on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

~ Boys of Summer - Don Henley

Flashback, '72
Another summer in the neighborhood
Hangin' out with nothing to do
Sometimes we'd go drivin' around
In my sister's Pinto
Cruisin' with the windows rolled down
We'd listen to the radio station
We were too damn poor to buy the eight track tapes
There wasn't any good time to want to be inside
My mama wanna watch that TV all goddamn night

AM Radio - Everclear
And I remember watching all those once upon a time's
Remember thinking "who's content and who's for rent"
And you say "Don't you want to be like that man?"
Oh no, no, no,
Then he cracks that smile and that don't look so bad to me

Happy, I'm happy, but that ain't good enough for you
Happy, I'm happy

~ Happy - Sister Hazel
Who needs sleep?
Well your never gonna get it
Who needs sleep?
Tell me whats that for.
Who needs sleep?
Be happy with what you've been getting
There's a guy hows been awake
Sense the second world war.

Who Needs Sleep? - Barenaked Ladies
I got my feet on the ground and I don't go to sleep to dream
You got your head in the clouds and you're not at all what you seem
This mind, this body, and this voice cannot be stifled by your deviant ways
So don't forget what I told you, don't come around, I got my own hell to raise

~ Sleep to Dream - Fiona Apple

Maybe it's intuition
But some things you just don't question
Like in your eyes
I see my future in an instant
and there it goes
I think I've found my best friend
I know that it might sound more than
a little crazy but I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

I knew I loved you - Savage Garden
We belong to the light, we belong to the thunder
We belong to the sound of the words we've both fallen under
Whatever we deny or rephrase, for worse or for better
We belong, we belong, we belong together

~ We Belong - Pat Benatar
I saw the sign, and it opened up my eyes, I saw the sign
Life is demanding, without understanding
I saw the sign, and it opened up my eyes I saw the sign
No one's gonna drag you up to get into the light where you belong
But where do you belong

The Sign - Ace of Base
Give me a word
Give me a sign
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find

Lay me on the ground
Fly me in the sky
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find

Oh, Heaven let your light shine down

~ Shine - Collective Soul

Tuesday, December 04, 2001

Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah, they were all yellow.

I came along,
I wrote a song for you,
And all the things you do,
And it was called "Yellow."

Yellow - Cold Play
Follow the yellow brick road, follow the yellow brick road
Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow the yellow brick road
We're off to see the wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz
We hear he is a whiz of a wiz if ever a whiz there was
We're off to see the wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz

~ Follow the Yellow Brick Road - The Wizard of Oz

Monday, December 03, 2001

Hey, Mr. Seeker
Hold on to this advice
If you keep seeking you will find
Don't want to follow
Down roads been walked before
It's so hard to find unopened doors

Are you Ready - Creed
Slow down, you're going too fast
We've got to make the morning last
Just kicking down the cobblestones
Looking for fun and feeling groovy

~ The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy) - Simon and Garfunkel

Sunday, December 02, 2001

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Time - Pink Floyd
I remember the days when I was so eager to satisfy you
And be less then I was just to prove I could walk beside you
Now that I’ve flown away I see you’ve chosen to stay behind me
And still you curse the day I decided to stay true to myself

~ On the Radio - Nelly Furtado

Whats wrong? Didn't like the song??

Thought about singin' but I couldn't remember all of the words
Breakin' but I couldn't get the peices apart
Laughin' never knowing what the joke was about
Now I'm down

And I wonder how I never got the burn
And if I'm never gonna learn
How lonely people make a life
One strain at a time

The Burn - Matchbox 20
