Stars fade away,

They just crash into space,

Disappear from the night,

Like you and I.

It's been a while,

Since I tapped into my appetite

But the hunger's coming back tonight.

The more that you fight,

The more you are mine.

I'll keep you forever.

The lives we make never seem to ever get us anywhere but dead."

Pale in the flare light

The scared light cracks and disappears

And leads the scorched ones here

And everywhere no one cares

The fire is spreading

No one wants to speak about it

Down in the hole

Jesus tries to crack a smile

Beneath another shovel load

I've held on too long just to let it go now

Will my inner strength get me through it somehow

Defying the curse that has taken hold

Never surrender

I'll never be overcome

In the arms of an Angel, fly away from here

From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear

You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie

You're in the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here..

Sarah McLachlan, Angel

..sung by someone with the voice of an angel - if you don't know Sarah, do yourself a huge favour:

(deliberately 'unlinked' to stay in keeping with the thread - just copy and paste it..)

Added PS - Royal, you have great taste - 'Broken English' is one of my top five albums of all time.

Hmm.. contrasts a bit with my love for Sarah McLachlan.. :D

The road is long with many a winding turn

That lead us to who knows where,

who knows where

But I'm strong,

strong enough to carry him

He ain't heavy, he's my brother

So on we go

His welfare is my concern

No burden is he to bear, we'll get there

For I know

he would not encumber me

He ain't heavy, he's my brother

I've thought and thought about "favorite lyrics" and really, my very favorite lyrics are probably by Bob dylan .. or various Beatles songs.. but just for fun i'll go with these King Crimson lyrics .. because they are so interesting.

The Court Of The Crimson King

including The Return Of The Fire Witch

and The Dance Of The Puppets

(McDonald-Sinfield)

***********************************

The rusted chains of prison moons

Are shattered by the sun.

I walk a road, horizons change

The tournament's begun.

The purple piper plays his tune,

The choir softly sing;

Three lullabies in an ancient tongue,

For the court of the crimson king.

The keeper of the city keys

Put shutters on the dreams.

I wait outside the pilgrim's door

With insufficient schemes.

The black queen chants

the funeral march,

The cracked brass bells will ring;

To summon back the fire witch

To the court of the crimson king.

The gardener plants an evergreen

Whilst trampling on a flower.

I chase the wind of a prism ship

To taste the sweet and sour.

The pattern juggler lifts his hand;

The orchestra begin.

As slowly turns the grinding wheel

In the court of the crimson king.

On soft grey mornings widows cry,

The wise men share a joke;

I run to grasp divining signs

To satisfy the hoax.

The yellow jester does not play

But gently pulls the strings

And smiles as the puppets dance

In the court of the crimson king.

One of my favorites from a very under rated band: Horslips

The song is "Stowaway" From their "Aliens" album

"I'm just a stowaway

Adrift on the sea.

I didn't build the ship,

I didn't cry the sea.

I'm just a stowaway,

Don't go botherin' me.

I'm just a castaway,

On an island of stones.

I didn't want to go,

Don't want to be alone.

I'm just a castaway,

Don't leave me here alone.

No one knows the tears I cried,

the day I knew I was leaving.

Where was there to go?

I don't know.

(instrumental)

I'm just a memory,

A dream and a sigh.

But sighs can drift away,

and dreams can tell a lie.

I'm just a memory,

and memories never die."

When I finally do 'go'... This song is one I want played...

Meanwhile, back at the ranch.....

"Well I'm not the worlds most passionate guy but, when I looked in her eyes well I almost fell for my Lola..

Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola ..."

Come on baby,

Keep it down,

Honey hush your lips.

Clothes trailing from the backdoor

To the bedroom

And I don't even know your name.

I may get in trouble for this one...

Now you come to me,

with a simple goodbye.

You tell me you're leaving,

but you won't tell me why,

Now we're here at the station,

and you're getting on.

And all I can think of is.....

Thank God and Greyhound you're gone!

Floating down through the clouds

Memories come rushing up to meet me now.

In the space between the heavens

and in the corner of some foreign field

I had a dream.

Love of my life-youve hurt me..

Youve broken my heart and now you leave me..

Love of my life cant you see..

Bring it back,bring it back..

Dont take it away from me..

Because you dont know...

What it means to me..

Queen - Love of my life

Strange days have found us

Strange days have tracked us down

Their going to destroy

Our casual joy

We shall go on playing

Or find a new town

Just to be different.....

Die Fahne hoch! Die Reihen fest geschlossen!

SA marschiert mit ruhig festem Schritt.

Kameraden, die Rotfront und Reaktion erschossen,

Marschieren im Geist in unseren Reihen mit.

Die Straße frei den braunen Batallionen.

Die Straße frei dem Sturmabteilungsmann!

Es schaun aufs Hakenkreuz voll Hoffnung schon Millionen.

Der Tag für Freiheit und für Brot bricht an!

I'll close my eyes,

Then I will take,

The love you don't feel

When you're holding me.

Morning will come,

And I'll do what's right.

Just give me till then,

to give up this fight.

:cry:

I love this song.

I am just a worthless liar

I am just an imbecile

I will only complicate you

Trust in me and fall as well

I will find a center in you

I will chew it up and leave

I will work to elevate you

Just enough to bring you down
