What I am to you is not real
What I am to you, you do not need
What I am to you is not what you mean to me
You give me miles and miles of mountains
And I'll ask for the sea

She
May be the beauty or the beast
May be the famine or the feast
May turn each day into a heaven or a hell
She may be the mirror of my dreams
A smile reflected in a stream
She may not be what she may seem
Inside her shell

Buffet - A Pirate Looks at 40

I've done a bit of smugglin'
I've run my share of grass
I made enough money to buy Miami
But I pissed it away so fast
Never meant to last
Never meant to last

Tonight let's close the door,
And hold on to the nearest thing.
Let's keep hanging on,
So we won't fall apart.
Let's make love tonight,
Like we've never had a broken heart.

Don't be afraid to close your eyes,
Pretend I'm somone that you love.
And I won't have to tell you lies,
Because it's not you I'm thinking of.

I see me through your eyes
Breathing new life, flying high
Your love shines the way into paradise
So I offer my life as a sacrifice

One of my favorite song writers is Gordon Lightfoot...

This song: "The House You Live In" is 'life' advice I would have liked to have told my son
- had I had a son...

Go first in the world, go forth with your fears
Remember a price must be paid
Be always too soon, be never too fast
At the time when all bets must be laid
Beware of the darkness, be kind to your children
Remember the woman who waits
And the house you live in will never fall down

If you pity the stranger who stands at your gate

When you're caught by the gale and you're full under sail
Beware of the dangers below
And the song that you sing should not be too sad
And be sure not to sing it too slow
Be calm in the face of all common disgraces
And know what they're doin' it for
And the house you live in will never fall down
If you pity the stranger who stands at your door

When you're out on the road and feelin' quite lost
Consider the burden of fame
And he who is wise will not criticize
When other men fail at the game
Beware of strange faces and dark dingy places
Be careful while bending the law
And the house you live in will never fall down
If you pity the stranger who stands at your door

When you're down in the dumps and not ready to deal
Decide what it is that you need
Is it money or love, is it learnin' to live
Or is it the mouth you must feed
Be known as a man who will always be candid
On questions that do not relate
And the house you live in will never fall down
If you pity the stranger who stands at your gate
And the house you live in will never fall down
If you pity the stranger who stands at your gate

Old Red Eyes is back

His shoulders ache all over and his brain is sore
He pours a drink and listens to his body thaw

They're only red from all the thoughts unused inside my head
They're only red from all the things I could have done instead

So when you look into these eyes I hope you realise
They could never be blue

Another one I like (I won't post the entire song this time I promise!) is by Al Stewart from the song "The Last Day Of June 1934", about the rise of Nazi Germany...

"On the night that Ernst Roehm died, voices rang out
In the rolling Bavarian hills.
And swept through the cities, and danced in the gutters
Grown strong like the joining of wills.

Oh echoed away like a roar in the distance
In moonlight carved out of steel.
Singing "All the lonely, so long and so long
You don't know how I long, how I long
You can't hold me, I'm strong now I'm strong
Stronger than your law"

The line about "Moonlight carved out of steel" has always been one of my favorites...

And another by Gordon Lightfoot - From "Farewell To Annabel"

"How many nights did you cry your dreams to sleep?"

"Now don't you cry, me bonny lass,
Though you be left behind,
For the rose will grow on Greenland's ice,
Before we change our minds."

"G a wyrd swa hio scel, ac gecnwan n gef!": "Fate goes ever as she shall, but know thine enemy!".

"I was born with a priceless gift - the ability to laugh at other peoples' troubles" - Dame Edna Everage
