    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    Was I?



    Sweet young thing of sixteen
    Thought I'd step out one night
    I longed to get the thrill in life I missed
    I met a youth, a bit uncouth,
    Although he seemed alright,
    I knew him by the moment when we kissed.
    When I got home next day with a swollen head,
    My girlfriend asked if I had fun I said,

    Was I drunk?
    Was he handsome?
    And did Mama give me hell?
    Did I get a thrill and am I full aquiver?
    Was he rough? Did I care?
    Am I glad I fell?
    very time I think of him, do I shiver?

    Was he high? And was I?
    And would he stand for me?
    He would not. Did I lie?
    Does he still think I'm a baby?
    If I was, am I still?
    Do I care? Don't be sill!
    Was I drunk? Was he handsome?
    And did Mama give me Hell?

    Was I drunk? Was he handsome?
    Did Mama give me Hell?
    With his hands loose there's no refusing.
    Did he fight? Was I blue?
    Almost shamed to tell,
    And I don't know yet the system he was using.
    Well, I said, "Stop, please behave."
    Well, what's the use of raving?
    He said, "Give," so I gave.
    After all what was I saving?
    Am I glad? Holy Gee,
    If I had fun, you're asking me.
    Was I drunk? Was he handsome?
    And did Mama give me Hell?

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    To ***

    Don't ask me why alone in dismal thought
    In times of mirth, I'm often filled with strife,
    And why my weary stare is so distraught,
    And why I don't enjoy the dream of life;

    Don't ask me why my soul has slowly perished
    And ceased to love the love that pleased me then
    No longer can I call someone "my cherished"--
    Who once has loved will never love again;

    Who once felt bliss will never feel its essence,
    A moment's happiness is all that we receive:
    From youth, prosperity and joyful pleasance
    All that is left is apathy and grief...

    NOTHING ELSE MATTERS

    So close, no matter how far.
    Couldn't be much more from the heart.
    Forever trusting who we are.
    And nothing else matters...

    Never opened myself this way.
    Life is ours, we live it our way.
    All these words I don't just say.
    And nothing else matters...

    Trust I seek and I find in you.
    Every day for us something new.
    Open mind for a different view.
    And nothing else matters...

    Never cared for what they say.
    Never cared for games they play.
    Never cared for what they do.
    Never cared for what they know,
    But I know...

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    MAMA SAID

    Mama, she has taught me well.
    Told me when I was young.
    "Son, your life's an open book.
    Don't close it 'fore it's done."

    The brightest flame burns quickest.
    That's what I heard her say.
    A son's heart's owed to mother,
    But I must find my way.

    "Rebel" my new last name,
    Wild blood in my veins.
    Apron strings around my neck,
    The mark that still remains.

    I left home at an early age
    Of what I heard was wrong.
    I never asked forgiveness
    But what I said is done.

    Mama, now I'm coming home,
    I'm not all you wished of me.
    A mother's love for her son
    Unspoken, help me be.

    I took your love for granted,
    And all the the things you said to me.
    I need your arms to welcome me,
    But a cold stone's all I see...

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    What a wonderful world

    I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom for me and you
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

    I see skies of blue and clouds of white
    The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

    The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people going by
    I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
    They're really saying I love you.

    I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
    They'll learn much more than I'll never know
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world
    Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

    Great song, isn't it?

    Listen listen
    Listen listen
    Listen (listen) listen (listen)
    Listen (listen) listen (listen)
    Listen (listen) listen (listen)
    Listen listen

    Listen to each drop of rain (listen listen)
    Aaah
    Whispering secrets in vain (listen listen)
    Aaah
    Frantically searching for someone to hear
    Their story before they hit ground
    Please don't let go
    Can't we stay for a while?
    It's just to hard to say goodbye
    Listen to the rain

    Aa...ah
    Listen listen listen listen listen listen to the rain
    Weeping
    Oo...ooh oooh ooh oo...ooh
    Oo...ooh oooh oh oh

    Listen (listen) listen (listen)
    Listen (listen) listen

    I stand alone in the storm (listen listen)
    Suddenly sweet words take hold
    (Listen listen)
    Hurry they say for you haven't much time
    Open your eyes to the love around you
    You may feel you're alone
    But I'm here still with you
    You can do what you dream
    Just remember to listen to the rain

    oo...ooh oh oh oh oh
    ooh ooh oh oh oooh
    Listen

    Or what?


    Pain "Not Afraid To Die"


    A journey through the space, colours, planets everywhere
    We're testing our insanity
    A razor across our skins, dropping all these magic pills
    Can't you see we're floating away

    Come take my hand, we'll fly away
    We'll move in silence
    We'll take a trip inside our heads
    Frame by frame

    We're not afraid to die
    We're not afraid to lose our minds
    We're not afraid to face the things we left behind
    We're not afraid

    Can you feel the vibration now
    Turn your body inside out
    This is really going to hurt
    Diving to the sea of hell
    Can you hear the judgment bells
    It's ringing for you and I

    Hear how it's calling out our names
    You better drop another pill
    It will never be the same
    We're going down

    We're not afraid to die
    We're not afraid to lose our minds
    We're not afraid to face the things we left behind
    We're not afraid to cry
    We're not afraid to kiss the sky
    We're not afraid to face the things we left behind

    A constant replay of our lives is flashing before my eyes
    A silent movie in black and white

    Maybe it got too much too soon
    It's getting hot as hell, we're burning up, I think we're gonna crash

    We're not afraid to die
    We're not afraid to lose our minds
    We're not afraid to face the things we left behind
    We're not afraid to cry
    We're not afraid to kiss the sky
    We're not afraid to face the things we left behind

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    Below the surface I swim
    Holding my breath as I sink deeper
    Watching the colors and the shapes
    Searching for another way out
    Clinging on to every last word
    A shred of hope long since forgotten
    All that is left is hate and regret
    This world got the best of me

    Further on. Closing in
    Falling down. Giving in...

    ...To the beyond

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,
    When you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on.

    Don't let yourself go, cause everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes.

    Sometimes everything is wrong. Now it's time to sing along.
    When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)
    If you feel like letting go, (hold on)
    If you think you've had too much of this life, well hang on.

    Cause' everybody hurts. Take comfort in your friends.
    Everybody hurts. Don't throw your hand.

    Oh, no. Don't throw your hand.
    When you feel like you're alone, no, no, no, you're not alone
    If you're on your own in this life, the days and nights are long,
    When you think you've had too much of this life to hang on.

    Well, everybody hurts sometimes,
    Everybody cries. And everybody hurts sometimes.
    And everybody hurts sometimes. So, hold on, hold on.

    Hold on, hold on.
    (Everybody hurts. You are not alone.)

    REM - Everybody hurts

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    Now you've got me running
    Running running for Cover

    I'm begging for a little sympathy
    And if you use me again it will be the end of me

    Cos when the loving starts
    And the lights go down
    Theres not another living soul around....

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    'Tis sweet to dance to violins,
    when love and life are fair.
    To dance to flutes, to dance to lutes,
    is delicate and rare.
    But it is not sweet, with nimble feet,
    to dance uppon the air.

    {OK, so it's from a poem: The Ballad of Reading Goal , but a fitting rebuckle of air-steppers }


    The stars, like dust encircle me
    in living mists of light
    And all of space I seem to see
    in one vast burst of sight

    {Another poem, but taken from a Craig-Shaw-Gardener book (ender's game I think)}

    ***

    If by life you were deceived,
    Don't be dismal, don't be wild!
    In the day of grief, be mild
    Merry days will come, believe.

    Heart is living in tomorrow;
    Present is dejected here;
    In a moment, passes sorrow;
    That which passes will be dear.

    Homeward bound
    I wish I was homeward bound

    Home where my music's playing
    Home where my love lies waiting

    "escaping", I've always heard, which has the advantage of rhyming with playing and waiting.
