    Lyrics on my mind Pt. III :)

    since the other thread is getting somewhat long, I'll start


    I am a passenger
    And I ride and I ride
    I ride through the city's backside
    I see the stars come out of the sky
    Yeah, they're bright in a hollow sky
    You know it looks so good tonight

    I am a passenger
    I stay under glass
    I look through my window so bright
    I see the stars come out tonight
    I see the bright and hollow sky
    Over the city's a rip in the sky
    And everything looks good tonight

    Singin' la la la la la-la-la la
    La la la la la-la-la la
    La la la la la-la-la la la-la

    Was it something you read
    was it something you meant?
    was it something you said,
    or was it heaven sent?

    When I saw your face
    I became a prisoner of your eyes
    And I would do just anything
    To stay and be with you

    You know there are times
    When I let myself wonder
    As I was going under
    You pulled me back to earth

    Don't you hear me crying
    Take me in your arms again
    Tell me that your trying
    Or is our love a lie

    Love is blind
    And love deceives you
    You came along and captured me
    Now I'm a prisoner of your eyes
    Trapped in time
    I cannot leave you
    I'm just a prisoner of your eyes
    As each day goes by
    I've given up completely
    I've locked myself inside your heart
    And thrown away the key

    Only time will tell
    If I can live without you
    Can you see into the future
    Will you ever set me free

    Don't you hear me crying
    Take me in your arms again
    Tell me that your trying
    Or is our love a lie

    Love is blind
    And love deceives you
    You came along and captured me
    Now I'm a prisoner of your eyes
    Trapped in time
    I cannot leave you
    I'm just a prisoner of your eyes

    In this heartache
    We can try and start again
    Stop the heartbreak
    A little time will help to kill the pain

    <Lead Break>

    Don't you hear me crying
    Take me in your arms again
    Tell me that your trying
    Or is our love a lie
    Love is blind
    And love deceives you
    You came along and captured me
    Now I'm a prisoner of your eyes
    Trapped in time
    I cannot leave you
    I'm just a prisoner of your eyes

    REPEAT x 2

    Trapped in time
    I cannot leave you
    I'm just a prisoner of your eyes.

    On the first day of May I took to the road
    I'd been staring out the window most of the morning
    I'd watched the rain claw at the glass
    And a vicious wind blew hard and fast
    I should have taken it as a warning
    As a warning
    As a warning
    As a warning .......

    Hallelujah Hallelujah
    Hallelujah Hallelujah

    The tears are welling in my eyes again
    I need twenty big buckets to catch them in
    And twenty pretty girls to carry them down
    And twenty deep holes to bury them in.....
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    And if a double-decker bus
    Crashes into us
    To die by your side
    Is such a heavenly way to die.
    And if a ten-ton truck
    Kills the both of us,
    To die by your side
    Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine.

    I'm all dressed up with nowhere to go
    Walkin with a deadman over my shoulder
    Waiting for an invitation to arrive
    Going to a party where no ones still alive
    I was struck by lightening walking down the street
    I was hit by something last night in my sleep
    It's a dead mans party
    Who could ask for more
    Everybody's coming
    Leave your body at the door
    ...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things."

    Have you hugged your penguin today?

    Believe in me
    Help me believe in anything
    I want to be someone who believes
    Mr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales
    Stare at the beautiful women
    Shes looking at you. Ah, no, no, shes looking at me.
    Smiling at the bright lights
    Coming through in stereo
    When everybody loves you, you can never be lonely
    I will paint my picture
    Paint myself in blue and red and black and grey
    All of the beautiful colors are very very meaningful
    Grey is my favorite color
    I felt so symbolic yesterday
    If I knew Picasso
    I would buy myself a grey guitar and play
    I want to be a lion
    Everybody wants to pass as cats
    We all want to be big big stars, but we got different reasons for that
    Believe in me because I dont believe in anything and I want to be someone to believe
    I miss you, Xistenza

    Since Vilji isn't here to post lyrics for a bit I'll start posting some on my mind. Just remember, I don't know all the great ones she does!

    I've been waiting for so long
    To come here now and sing this song
    Don't be fooled by what you see
    Don't be fooled by what you hear
    This is a song to all my friends
    They take the challenge to their hearts
    Challenging preconceived ideas
    Saying goodbye to long standing fears
    Don't crack up, bend your brain
    See both sides
    Throw off your mental chains
    I don't wanna be hip and cool
    I don't wanna play by the rules
    Not under the thumb of the cynical few
    Or laden down by the doom crew
    ...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things."

    If you loose your faith, babe, you can have mine,
    and if you're lost I'm right behind,
    cause we walk the same line.
    Now I don't have to tell you
    how slow the night can go,
    I know you've watched for the light.
    And I bet you could tell me
    how slowly four follows three,
    and you're most forlorn just before dawn.
    So if you loose your faith babe,
    you can have mine,
    and if you're lost, I'm right behind,
    cause we walk the same line.
    When it's dark baby,
    there's a light I'll shine,
    and if you're lost, I'm right behind,
    cause we walk the same line.
    And I don't need reminding
    how loud the phone can ring
    when you're waiting for news.
    And that big old moon
    lights every corner of the room.
    Your back aches from lying
    and your head aches from crying.
    So if you loose your faith babe,
    you can have mine,
    and if you're lost, I'm right behind,
    cause we walk the same line.
    When it's dark baby,
    there's a light I'll shine,
    and if you're lost, I'm right behind,
    cause we walk the same line.
    And if these troubles
    should vanish like rain on midday,
    well I've no doubt there'll be more.
    And we can't run and we can't cheat,
    cause babe when we meet
    what we're afraid of,
    we find out what we're made of.
    So if you loose your faith babe,
    you can have mine,
    and if you're lost, I'm right behind,
    cause we walk the same line.
    When it's dark baby,
    there's a light I'll shine,
    and if you're lost, I'm right behind,
    cause we walk the same line.
    I miss you, Xistenza

    Ah, it's a happy time inside my mind
    When a melody does find a rhyme
    Says to me I'm comin' home to stay
    Oh, Lord, home to stay
    I'm comin' home to stay
    Home to stay

    Ah, lord, it's just the same old story
    Something about love for glory
    A nickel and a dime a dozen
    Fame
    Ah, it's such a shame
    Ah, the way they use your name
    Ah, you know it's such a shame
    When it's only mine to sing a song
    Hoping that you'd cross along my way
    Before I have to move along
    Ah, now move along
    Ah, but I'll be back again
    Ooh back again

    Ah, it's a happy time inside my mind
    When a melody does find a rhyme
    Says to me I'm comin' home to stay
    Oh, Lord, home to stay
    I'm comin' home to stay
    Home to stay

    Sleep late now mama
    Let the mornin' sun warm your bed
    While I'm away
    While I'm away

    Baby i've been drifting away
    I've been dreaming all day
    Of holding you, touching you
    The only thing I wanna do
    Is be with you, as close to you
    As I can be

    CHORUS:
    Lets make love
    All night long
    Until all of our strenght is gone
    Hold on tight, just let go
    I wanna feel you in my soul
    Until the sun comes up
    Lets make love

    Do you know what you do to me

    "My whole life passed before my eyes
    I thought What they say is true
    I shed my skin and my disguise
    And cold, numb and naked
    I emerged from my cocoon
    And a half remembered tune
    Played softly in my head
    Then he turned smiling
    And said

    I realise a miracle is due
    I dedicate this melody to you
    But is this the stuff dreams are made of?
    If this is the stuff dreams are made of
    No wonder I feel like I'm floating on air

    Everywhere
    It feels like I'm everywhere
    It's like you fail to make the connection
    You know how vital it is
    Or when something slips through your fingers
    You know how precious it is
    Well you reach the point where you know
    It's only your second skin"
    "ask me i won't say no, how could i?"

    I can see we're thinkin' bout the same things
    And I can see your expression when the phone rings
    We both know there's something happening here
    Well, there's no sense in dancing round the subject
    A wound gets worse when it's treated with neglect
    Don't turn around there's nothing here to fear
    You can talk to me
    Talk to me
    You can talk to me
    You can set your secrets free, baby
    Dusty words lying under carpets
    Seldom heard well must you keep your secrets
    Locked inside hidden safe from view
    Well, is it all that hard
    Is it all that tough
    Well, I've shown you all my cards now isn't that enough
    You can hide your hurt
    But, there's something you can do
    You can talk to me
    Talk to me...talk to me
    I can set your secrets free, baby
    I miss you, Xistenza

    I wanna know what you're thinking
    There are some things you can't hide
    I wanna know what you're feeling
    Tell me what's on your mind
    Pure energy
    ...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things."

    Well I'm shamemeless when it comes to loving you
    I'll do anything you want me to
    I'll do anything at all

    And I'm standing here for all the world to see
    Oh baby, that's what's left of me
    Don't have very far to fall

    You know now I'm not a man who's ever been
    Insecure about the world I've been living in
    I don't break easy, I have my pride
    But if you need to be satisfied

    I'm shameless, oh honey, I don't have a prayer
    Every time I see you standin' there
    I go down upon my knees

    And I'm changing, swore I'd never compromise
    Oh, but you convinced me otherwise
    I'll do anything you please

    You see in all my life I've never found
    What I couldn't resist, what I couldn't turn down
    I could walk away from anyone I ever knew
    But I can't walk away from you

    I have never let anything have this much control over me
    I work too hard to call my life my own
    I have never let anything have this much control over me
    I work too hard to call my life my own
    And I've made myself a world and it's worked so perfectly
    But it's your world now, I can't refuse
    I've never had so much to lose
    Oh, I'm shameless

    Oh God, it's raining
    But I'm not complaining
    It's filling me up
    With new life
    The stars in the sky
    Bring tears to my eyes
    They're lighting my way
    Tonight
    And I haven't felt so alive
    In years
    Just for a day
    On a day like today
    I'll get away from this
    Constant debauchery
    The wind in my hair
    Makes me so aware
    How good it is to live
    Tonight
    And I haven't felt so alive
    In years
    The moon
    Is shining in the sky
    Reminding me
    Of so many other nights
    But they're not like tonight
    Oh God, it's raining
    And I'm not containing
    My pleasure at being
    So wet
    Here on my own
    All on my own
    How good it feels to be alone
    Tonight
    And I haven't felt so alive
    In years
    The moon
    Is shining in the sky
    Reminding me
    Of so many other nights
    When my eyes have been so red
    I've been mistaken for dead
    But not tonight
    I miss you, Xistenza

    I am, I am, I am Superman and I know what's happening
    I am, I am, I am Superman and I can do anything
    You don't really love that guy you make it with now do you
    I know you don't love that guy cause I can see right thru you
    If you go a million miles away I'll track you down girl
    Trust me when I say I know the pathway to your heart
    ...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things."

    Washed up on the shore
    Seems Im not alone in being alone
    Looking for a home
    I miss you, Xistenza

    Boys in bikinis
    Girls with surfboards
    Everybodys rockin'
    Everybodys fruggin'
    Twistin' round the fire
    Havin' fun
    Bakin' potatoes
    Bakin' in the sun
    Put on your noseguard
    Put on the lifeguard
    Pass the tanning butter
    Here comes the sting-ray
    There goes the manta-ray
    In walked a jellyfish
    There goes a dogfish
    Chased by a catfish
    In flew a sea robin
    Watch out for the piranha
    There goes a narwhale
    Here comes a bikini whale
    ...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things."
