    Lyrics Collection

    Feel free to post the lyrics to any song you like here.

    Been listening to Muse - Starlight. Here are the lyrics-

    Far away
    The ship is taking me far away
    Far away from the memories
    Of the people who care if I live or die

    Starlight
    I will be chasing a starlight
    Until the end of my life
    I don't know if it's worth it anymore

    And hold you in my arms
    I just wanted to hold
    You in my arms

    My life
    You electrify my life
    Let's conspire to re-ignite
    All the souls that would die just to feel alive

    But I'll never let you go
    If you promise not to fade away
    Never fade away

    Our hopes and expectations
    Black holes and revelations
    Our hopes and expectations
    Black holes and revelations

    Hold you in my arms
    I just wanted to hold
    You in my arms

    Far away
    The ship is taking me far away
    Far away from the memories
    Of the people who care if I live or die

    And I'll never let you go
    If you promise not to fade away
    Never fade away

    Our hopes and expectations
    Black holes and revelations
    Yeah
    Our hopes and expectations
    Black holes and revelations

    Hold you in my arms
    I just wanted to hold
    You in my arms

    I just wanted to hold

    Muse - Unintended

    You could be my unintended
    Choice to live my life extended
    You could be the one Ill always love
    You could be the one who listens to my deepest inquisitions
    You could be the one Ill always love

    Ill be there as soon as I can
    But Im busy mending broken pieces of the life I had before

    First there was the one who challenged
    All my dreams and all my balance
    She could never be as good as you

    You could be my unintended
    Choice to live my life extended
    You should be the one Ill always love

    Ill be there as soon as I can
    But Im busy mending broken pieces of the life I had before

    Ill be there as soon as I can
    But Im busy mending broken pieces of the life I had before

    Before you

    SAMAIN NIGHT

    Words and music by Loreena McKennitt

    When the moon on a cloud cast night
    Hung above the tree tops' height
    You sang me of some distant past
    That made my heart beat strong and fast
    Now I know I'm home at last

    You offered me an eagle's wing
    That to the sun I might soar and sing
    And if I heard the owl's cry
    Into the forest I would fly
    And in its darkness find you by.

    And so our love's not a simple thing
    Nor our truths unwavering
    But like the moon's pull on the tide
    Our fingers touch, our hearts collide
    I'll be a moonsbreath by your side.

    Time in a bottle - Jim Croce (who died soon afterwards in a plain crash)

    If I could save time in a bottle
    The first thing that Id like to do
    Is to save every day
    Till eternity passes away
    Just to spend them with you

    If I could make days last forever
    If words could make wishes come true
    Id save every day like a treasure and then,
    Again, I would spend them with you

    But there never seems to be enough time
    To do the things you want to do
    Once you find them
    Ive looked around enough to know
    That youre the one I want to go
    Through time with

    If I had a box just for wishes
    And dreams that had never come true
    The box would be empty
    Except for the memory
    Of how they were answered by you

    But there never seems to be enough time
    To do the things you want to do
    Once you find them
    Ive looked around enough to know
    That youre the one I want to go
    Through time with

    On mine Sade is fine. I with the great pleasure listen to her songs:

    "i won't pretend that i intend to stop living
    i won't pretend i'm good at forgiving
    but i can't hate you
    although i have tried
    mmmm


    i still really really love you
    love is stronger than pride
    i still really really love you
    mmmm"


    Too romantically

    More Muse lyrics; 'Uno' this time-

    This means nothing to me
    'Cause you are nothing to me
    And it means nothing to me
    That you blew this away


    'Cause you could've been number one
    If you only found the time
    And you could've ruled the whole world
    If you had the chance


    You could've been number one
    And you could've ruled the whole world
    And we could've had so much fun
    But you blew it away


    You're still nothing to me
    And this is nothing to me
    And you don't know what you've done
    But I'll give you a clue


    You could've been number one
    If you only had the chance
    And you could've ruled the whole world
    If you had the time


    You could've been number one
    And you could've ruled the whole world
    And we could've had so much fun
    But you blew it away


    You could've been number one
    And you could've ruled the whole world
    And we could've had so much fun
    But you blew it away

    Share the Darkness - The saw Doctors
    (posted in an unashamed effort to promote this band)


    Hey I can’t I say that I love you
    I cant’ say that I don’t
    I cant say that I couldn’t
    And I won't say that I won’t
    But I really like your company
    I’m enjoying myself no end
    But I can’t keep from thinking
    Why don’t we share the darkness tonight
    Make it warm and burning bright
    I’ll not say nothing
    I'll be polite
    Why don’t we share the darkness tonight
    Ta an dorachadas ag teacht anuas
    Tar abhaile liom a gra.
    Ta an dorachadas ag teacht anuas
    Tar abhaile liom
    Ah life’s too short for wasting
    For ifs and might have been's
    Life’s too short for wondering if
    You could have lived your dreams
    And its way too short for loneliness
    We don't have to be
    Now that we trust each other
    Why don’t you stay with me?
    Why don't we share the darkness tonight
    Make it warm and burning bright
    I'll not say nothing
    I'll be polite
    Why don't we share the darkness tonight
    Repeat Gaelic chorus(Brid Dooley)
    When the world belongs to distant dogs
    And the air is dark and still
    And drunken conversations pass beneath the window sill
    And there’s someone singing
    Elvis songs as they make their way back home
    and all your fears and worries
    attack when you're alone
    when you're alone, when you're alone, when you're alone
    Why don't we share the darkness tonight
    Make it warm and burning bright
    I'll not say nothing
    I'll be polite
    Why don't we share the darkness tonight
    Ta an dorachadas ag teacht anuas
    Tar abhaile liom a gra
    Ta an dorachadas ag teacht anuas
    Tar abhaile liom
    Why don't we share the darkness tonight

    Elvis Costello - Beyong Belief:

    History repeats the old conceits
    The glib replies the same defeats
    Keep your finger on important issues
    With crocodile tears and a pocketful of tissues

    I'm just the oily slick
    On the wind-up world of the nervous tick
    In a very fashionable hovel

    I hang around dying to be tortured
    You'll never be alone in the bone orchard
    This battle with the bottle is nothing so novel

    So in this almost empty gin palace
    Through a two-way looking glass
    You see your Alice

    You know she has no sense
    For all your jealousy
    In a sense she still smiles very sweetly

    Charged with insults and flattery
    Her body moves with malice
    Do you have to be so cruel to be callous

    And now you find you fit this identikit completely
    You say you have no secrets
    And then leave discreetly

    I might make it California's fault
    Be locked in genevas deepest vault
    Just like the canals of mars and the Great Barrier Reef
    I come to you beyond belief

    My hands were clammy and cunning
    Shes been suitably stunning
    But I know theres not a hope in hades
    All the laddies cat call and wolf whistle
    So-called gentlemen and ladies
    Dog fight like rose and thistle

    I've got a feeling
    I'm going to get a lot of grief
    Once this seemed so appealing
    Now I am beyond belief

    Ok, everyone has to sing along to this one-

    Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
    Words and music by Freddie Mercury

    Is this the real life-
    Is this just fantasy-
    Caught in a landslide-
    No escape from reality-
    Open your eyes
    Look up to the skies and see-
    Im just a poor boy,i need no sympathy-
    Because Im easy come,easy go,
    A little high,little low,
    Anyway the wind blows,doesnt really matter to me,
    To me

    Mama,just killed a man,
    Put a gun against his head,
    Pulled my trigger,now hes dead,
    Mama,life had just begun,
    But now Ive gone and thrown it all away-
    Mama ooo,
    Didnt mean to make you cry-
    If Im not back again this time tomorrow-
    Carry on,carry on,as if nothing really matters-

    Too late,my time has come,
    Sends shivers down my spine-
    Bodys aching all the time,
    Goodbye everybody-Ive got to go-
    Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth-
    Mama ooo- (any way the wind blows)
    I dont want to die,
    I sometimes wish Id never been born at all-

    I see a little silhouetto of a man,
    Scaramouche,scaramouche will you do the fandango-
    Thunderbolt and lightning-very very frightening me-
    Galileo,galileo,
    Galileo galileo
    Galileo figaro-magnifico-
    But Im just a poor boy and nobody loves me-
    Hes just a poor boy from a poor family-
    Spare him his life from this monstrosity-
    Easy come easy go-,will you let me go-
    Bismillah! no-,we will not let you go-let him go-
    Bismillah! we will not let you go-let him go
    Bismillah! we will not let you go-let me go
    Will not let you go-let me go
    Will not let you go let me go
    No,no,no,no,no,no,no-
    Mama mia,mama mia,mama mia let me go-
    Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me,for me,for me-

    So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye-
    So you think you can love me and leave me to die-
    Oh baby-cant do this to me baby-
    Just gotta get out-just gotta get right outta here-

    Nothing really matters,
    Anyone can see,
    Nothing really matters-,nothing really matters to me,

    Any way the wind blows....

    I have the lyrics that I made up for a lullaby but you can put any
    tune to it. Here it goes:

    The moon is out tonight
    The stars are shining bright
    Sandman's calling time for nighty night.

    Close those little eyes
    and dream a little dream.
    Close your eyes it's nighty night.

    Caravan - In the Land of Grey and Pink

    In the land of grey and pink
    where only boy-scouts stop to think
    They'll be coming back again,
    those nasty grumbly grimblies
    And they're climbing down your chimney,
    yes they're trying to get in
    Come to take your money,
    isn't it a sin, they're so thin
    They've black buckets in the sky,
    don't leave your dad in the rain
    Cigarettes burn bright tonight,
    they'll all get washed down the drain

    So we'll sail away for just one day
    to the land where the punk weed grows
    Won't need any money,
    just fingers and your toes
    And when it's dark our boat will park
    on a land of warm and green
    Pick our fill of punk weed and smoke it till we bleed,
    that's all we'll need
    While sailing back in morning light,
    we'll wash our teeth in the sea
    And when the day gets really bright,
    we'll go to sea drinking tea





    This Heat - Deceit

    eat, drink and be merry
    for tomorrow we did
    eat electricity
    drink five of the seven seas
    here is a paralyzed sleet
    here is a bubble bath rain
    acrid stench and festering tongue
    new york, moscow, nairobi in flames

    i don't know either, what is the answer?
    we were told to expect more
    and now that we've got more
    we want more, we want more

    we have moved from a to x
    this welfare state is our progress
    the size of it all carries us all along
    more equals better, it's what we want
    our energy is endless it seems
    it's there when we need it
    we've got men on the job

    we finance clinics to research
    a cure for cancer, our least vague fear
    a new kind of water
    a new way of breathing
    always somehow a wonder cure all
    turns up when we need it
    we've got men on the job

    you know from experience
    the creature comforts, a house that's warm
    your body would choose all this
    of course! it's innate we're selfish
    but what if there's not enough to go round?
    defence is needed
    we've got some odd men in odd jobs

    we have moved from a to z
    this nuclear state is our demise
    fly away peter, hide away paul
    who can watch as the earth burns, shatters and dies?
    failsafe, foolproof, we've heard that before
    good sense is needed
    let's hope we've got men on the job

    the size of it all carries us along
    more is better, it's what we want
    You know from experience
    the body would choose all this
    "Did anybody see this snowman
    Stand there with the lord
    With proper get up, hang his hat
    Only you're feeling sleepy-eyed"

    -Damo Suzuki

    Bob Dylan – Blowin' In The Wind Lyrics


    How many roads must a man walk down
    Before you can call him a man?
    How many seas must a white dove sail
    Before she sleeps in the sand?
    Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
    Before they're forever banned?
    The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
    The answer is blowin' in the wind.


    Yes, how many years can a mountain exist
    Before it's washed to the sea?
    Yes, how many years can some people exist
    Before they're allowed to be free?
    Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
    Pretending he just doesn't see?
    The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
    The answer is blowin' in the wind.


    Yes, how many times must a man look up
    Before he can really see the sky?
    Yes, how many ears must one man have
    Before he can hear people cry?
    Yes, how many deaths will it take till he knows
    That too many people have died?
    The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
    The answer is blowin' in the wind.
