"Don't Cry No Tears" Neil Young

Don't cry no tears around me

Don't cry no tears around me

'Cause when all the water's gone

The feeling lingers on

Old true love

ain't too hard to see

Don't cry no tears around me.

Well I wonder

who's with her tonight?

And I wonder

who's holding her tight?

But there's nothing I can say

To make him go away

Old true love

ain't too hard to see

Don't cry no tears around me.

There's nothing I can say

To make him go away

Old true love

ain't too hard to see

Don't cry no tears around me

Don't cry no tears around me.

There's a sweet live track of this song with Neil playing the banjo...

Mellow On My Mind -- Neil Young

Baby mellow my mind,

Make me feel like a schoolboy on good time,

Jugglin nickels and dimes,

Satisfied with the fish on the line.

Ive been down the road and Ive come back

Lonesome whistle on the railroad track

Aint got nothing on those feelings that I had.

Something so hard to find,

A situation that can casualize your mind.

Ive been down the road and Ive come back

Lonesome whistle on the railroad track

Aint got nothing on those feelings that I had.

Baby mellow my mind,

Make me feel like a schoolboy on good time,

Jugglin nickels and dimes,

Satisfied with the fish on the line.

"Achy Breaky Heart" by Billy Ray Cyrus (my grampy's favorite song. lol)

You can tell the world you never was my girl

You can burn my clothes when I'm gone

Or you can tell your friends just what a fool I've been

And laugh and joke about me on the phone

You can tell my arms to go back onto the phone

You can tell my feet to hit the floor

Or you can tell my lilps to tell my fingertips

They won't be reaching out for you no more

But don't tell my heart, my achy breaky heart

I just don't think it'd understand

And if you tell my heart, my achy breaky heart

He might blow up and kill this man

Ooo

You can tell your ma I moved to Arkansas

Or you can tell your dog to bite my leg

Or tell your brother Cliff who's fist can tell my lips

He never really liked me anyway

Oh tell your Aunt Louise, tell anything you please

Myself already knows that I'm okay

Oh you can tell my eyes to watch out for my mind

It might be walking out on me today

But don't tell my heart, my achy breaky heart

I just don't think it'd understand

And if you tell my heart, my achy breaky heart

He might blow up and kill this man

Ooo

But don't tell my heart, my achy breaky heart

I just don't think it'd understand

And if you tell my heart, my achy breaky heart

He might blow up and kill this man

Ooo

Don't tell my heart, my achy breaky heart

He might blow up and kill this man

Ooo

Don't tell my heart, my achy breaky heart

He might blow up and kill this man

Ooo

I just love this song.....

I'm Happy Just To Dance With You

The Beatles

Before this dance is through

I think I'll love you too

I'm so happy when you dance with me

I don't want to kiss or hold your hand

If its funny try and understand

There is really nothing else I would rather do

'cause I'm happy just to dance with you

I don't need to hug or hold you tight

I just want to dance with you all night

In this world there's nothing I would rather do

'cause I'm happy just to dance with you

Just to dance with you

Is everything I need

Before this dance is through

I think I'll love you too

I'm so happy when you dance with me

If somebody tries to take my place

Let's pretend we just can't see his face

In this world there's nothing I would rather do

'cause I'm happy just to dance with you

Just to dance with you

Is everything I need

Before this dance is through

I think I'll love you too

I'm so happy when you dance with me

If somebody tries to take my place

Let's pretend we just can't see his face

In this world there's nothing I would rather do

I discovered I'm in love with you

'cause I'm happy just to dance with you

^ I love that song too!!

The Last 10 Years by Kenny Rogers

Oh, the last ten years, it's been quite trip

Over thirty-six-hundred spins around without a cosmic slip

But within the realm of our atmosphere

We're 'bout as out of whack as we've ever been in a million years

We watched the Y2K scare in a panic

An' we watched as time proved Nostrodamus wrong

An' we watched as Mother Nature shook the planet

An' cellular replaced the telephone

We lost Charlie Brown, Ray Charles an' Johnny Cash

We even lost Superman, mhm.

Well, the last ten years, look at the hills we've climbed

The best golfer's black, the best rapper's white an' it's about damn time

But we best beware, there's a brand new fight, you see

An' I hate to say we might be our own worst enemy

We watched Oklahoma sifting through the damage

An' we watched a US President get caught

We watched shareholders watched their savings vanish

We all cried when we watched those towers fall

We lost Minnie Pearl, Ron Reagan and Sam I Am

We even lost Superman, mhm.

Expensive gas an' free downloads

The dot-com boom, an' reality shows

What's gonna happen next is anybody's guess

Satellite radio and hybrid cars

Hand-held computers an' a trip to Mars

It's all become a part of who we are

In the last ten years.

In the last ten years

We lost George Harrison, John Paul and June Carter-Cash

Hell, we even lost Superman

Gonna miss you. Chris...

I've had this one going around in my head for about a week now...

Surrounded (Chantal Kreviazuk)

I was there

When you shone as bright as Bethlehem from afar

I was there

When you were young and strong and perverted

And everything that makes a young man a star

Oh you were a star

I was there

And I swear to God and on my mother's grave

On everything I have or ever will embrace

I was there

And I saw it with my own two eyes

And now it's all around me

It's all around me

I'm surrounded

Now it's all around me

It's all around me

You surround me like a circle

I was there

C'mon and tell me I wasn't worth

Sticking it out for

Well I was there

And I know I was worth it

Cause if I wasn't worth it

That makes me worse off then you are

It's all around me

It's all around me

I'm surrounded

You know it's all around me

It's all around me

You surround me like a circle

But don't you lose sight of me now

Don't you lose sight of me now

I was there

When they dropped the bomb

You know I remember the bomb

And I still hear the bomb

And I still fight the bomb

You know I still fear the bomb

You know I still hate the bomb

Sometimes I still get the call

So don't you lose sight of me now

Don't you lose sight of me now

You know you're all around me

You're all around me

I'm surrounded

You surround me like a circle

THE SHINS LYRICS

"Turn On Me"

You can fake it for a while,

Bite your tongue and smile,

Like every mother does an ugly child.

But the stars are leaking out,

Like spittle from a cloud,

Amassed resentment counting ounce and pound.

You're entertaining any doubt,

Because you had to know that I was fond of you,

Fond of Y-O-U,

Though I knew you masked your disdain.

I can see that change was just too hard for us,

Hard for us.

You always had to hold the reigns,

But where I'm headed, you just don't know the way.

So affections fade away,

And do adults just learn to play

The most ridiculous, repulsive games?

On the faith of ruddy sons,

And the double-barreled guns,

You better hurry,

Rabbit, run, run, run.

'Cause meeting you was fun,

And there's a lot of hungry howlers in this one cell.

We're taking it over,

Their brittle, thorny stems,

They break before they bend,

And neither one of us is one of them.

And the tails will never mend,

'Cause you had it in for me so long ago.

Boy, I still don't know,

I don't know why and I don't care,

Well, hardly anymore,

If you'd only seen yourself hating me.

Hating me,

When I've been so much more than fair.

But then you had to lay those feelings bare,

One thing I know still got you scared,

You're all that cold iron,

And never once aired of our dead.

You had to know that I was fond of you,

Fond of Y-O-U.

So I took your licks at the time,

And to change like that is just so hard to do,

Hard to do.

Don't let it whip-crack your life,

And bow out from the fight,

'Cause oh, how your sisters will write.

The worst part is over,

Now, get back on that horse and ride.

You Little Thief

(Sung by Feargal Sharkey, but written by the Heartbreakers' own B.M. Tench III)

You little thief

You let me love you

You saw me stumbling

You watched me fall

You left me broken

Shattered and bleeding

But there's no hard feelings

There's no feelings at all

You little thief

You little savage

You little beauty

You little whore

You've taken everything

I had to believe in

Now there's nothing

To believe in at all

So tell me how does it feel

To make a grown man wanna die

Does it make you uneasy

Does it every cross your mind

You little dream

You little nightmare

You little nothing

You little girl

You left me broken ...

There's no hard feelings ..

Cos when I needed you

You watched me fall

Okay, I love some great rock and roll bands...but I am still going to say...this song has to be the greatest Rock and Roll song ever written. I never tire of this...still get goosebumps with that first note. What an incredible ride our band has been on....I am so happy to be able to see the journey on the big screen in NYC next month. So proud of these guys.....so happy I found this place.....rock on, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers!!

American Girl

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

Well she was an american girl

Raised on promises

She couldnt help thinkin that there

Was a little more to life

Somewhere else

After all it was a great big world

With lots of places to run to

Yeah, an d if she had to die

Tryin she had one little promise

She was gonna keep

Oh yeah, all right

Take it easy baby

Make it last all night

She was an american girl

It was kind of cold that night

She stood alone on her balcony

She could the cars roll by

Out on 441

Like waves crashin in the beach

And for one desperate moment there

He crept back in her memory

God its so painful

Something thats so close

And still so far out of reach

Oh yeah, all right

Take it easy baby

Make it last all night

She was an american girl

^I love that song!!

One Week by the Barenaked Ladies

Such a random song.

Its been one week since you looked at me

Cocked your head to the side and said Im angry.

Five days since you laughed at me

Saying get that together come back and see me.

Three days since the living room

I realized its all my fault, but couldnt tell you

Yesterday youd forgiven me

But itll still be two days till I say Im sorry

Hold it now and watch the hoodwink

As I make you stop, think

Youll think youre looking at aquaman

I summon fish to the dish, although I like the chalet swiss

I like the sushi cause its never touched a frying pan

Hot like wasabe when I bust rhymes

Big like leann rimes

Because Im all about value

Bert kaempferts got the mad hits

You try to match wits

You try to hold me but I bust through

Gonna make a break and take a fake

Id like a stinkin achin shake

I like vanilla, its the finest of the flavours

Gotta see the show, cause then youll know

The vertigo is gonna grow

Cause its so dangerous, youll have to sign a waiver

How can I help it if I think youre funny when youre mad

Trying hard not to smile though I feel bad

Im the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral

Cant understand what I mean?

Well, you soon will

I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve

I have a history of taking off my shirt

Its been one week since you looked at me

Threw your arms in the air and said youre crazy

Five days since you tackled me

Ive still got the rug burns on both my knees

Its been three days since the afternoon

You realized its not my fault not a moment too soon

Yesterday youd forgiven me

And now I sit back and wait till you say youre sorry

Chickity china the chinese chicken

You have a drumstick and your brain stops tickin

Watchin x-files with no lights on, were dans la maison

I hope the smoking mans in this one

Like harrison ford Im getting frantic

Like sting Im tantric

Like snickers, guaranteed to satisfy

Like kurasawa I make mad films

Okay I dont make films

But if I did theyd have a samurai

Gonna get a set of better clubs

Gonna find the kind with tiny nubs just so my

Irons arent always flying off the back-swing

Gotta get in tune with sailor moon

Cause that cartoon has got the boom anime babes

That make me think the wrong thing

How can I help it if I think youre funny when youre mad

Trying hard not to smile though I feel bad

Im the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral

Cant understand what I mean? you soon will

I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve

I have a history of losing my shirt

Its been one week since you looked at me

Dropped your arms to your sides and said Im sorry

Five days since I laughed at you

And said you just did just what I thought you were gonna do

Three days since the living room

We realized were both to blame, but what could we do?

Yesterday you just smiled at me

Cause itll still be two days till we say were sorry

Itll still be two days till we say were sorry

Itll still be two days till we say were sorry

One of the most beautiful love songs I've ever heard (and probably the best song ST ever played on pre-Heartbreakers)...

Sky Blue and Black

(Jackson Browne)

In the calling out to one another

Of the lovers up and down the strand

In the sound of the waves and the cries

Of the seagulls circling the sand

In the fragments of the songs

Carried down the wind from some radio

In the murmuring of the city in the distance

Ominous and low

I hear the sound of the world where we played

And the far too simple beauty

Of the promises we made

If you ever need holding

Call my name, I’ll be there

If you ever need holding

And no holding back, I’ll see you through

Sky blue and black

Where the touch of the lover ends

And the soul of the friend begins

There’s a need to be separate and a need to be one

And a struggle neither wins

Where you gave me the world I was in

And a place I could make a stand

I could never see how you doubted me

When I’d let go of your hand

Yeah, and I was much younger then

And I must have thought that I would know

If things were going to end

And the heavens were rolling

Like a wheel on a track

And our sky was unfolding

And it’ll never fold back

Sky blue and black

And I’d have fought the world for you

If I thought that you wanted me to

Or put aside what was true or untrue

If I’d known that’s what you needed

What you needed me to do

But the moment has passed by me now

To have put away my pride

And just come through for you somehow

If you ever need holding

Call my name, I’ll be there

If you ever need holding

And no holding back, I’ll see you through

You’re the color of the sky

Reflected in each store-front window pane

You’re the whispering and the sighing

Of my tires in the rain

You’re the hidden cost and the thing that’s lost

In everything I do

Yeah and I’ll never stop looking for you

In the sunlight and the shadows

And the faces on the avenue

That’s the way love is

That’s the way love is

That’s the way love is

Sky blue and black

Ain't Hurtin' Nobody Lyrics -- John Prine

I'm a walkin' down the street like Lucky Larue

Got my hand in my pocket I'm thinkin' 'bout you

I ain't hurtin' nobody

I ain't hurtin' no one

There's three hundred men in the state of Tennessee

They're waiting to die, they won't never be free

I ain't hurtin' nobody

I ain't hurtin' no one

Six million seven hundred thousand and thirty-three lights on

You think someone could take the time to sit down

And listen to the words of my song

At the beach in Indiana I was nine years old

Heard Little Richard singing "Tutti Frutti"

From the top of a telephone pole

I wasn't hurtin' nobody

I wasn't hurtin' no one

There's roosters laying chickens and chickens layin' eggs

Farm machinery eating people's arms and legs

I wasn't hurtin' nobody

I wasn't hurtin' no one

Perfectly crafted popular hit songs never use the wrong rhyme

You'd think that waitress could get my order

Right the first time

She's sitting on the back steps just shucking that corn

That gal's been grinning since the day she was born

She ain't hurtin' nobody

She ain't hurtin' no one

I used to live in Chicago where the cold wind blows

I delivered more junk mail than the junkyard would hold

I wasn't hurtin' nobody

I wasn't hurtin' no one

You can fool some of the people part of the time

In a rock and roll song

Fifty million Elvis Presley fans

Can't be all wrong

I was playing some of my old albums last night...I love this song...love how Linda (Ronstadt) sings this......just beautiful....

Someone To Watch Over Me

George Gershwin

There's a saying old says that love is blind,

Still we're often told, "Seek and ye shall find."

So I'm going to seek a certain lad I've had in mind.

Looking everywhere, haven't found him yet;

He's the big affair I cannot forget.

Only man I ever think of with regret.

I'd like to add his initials to my monogram.

Tell me, where is the shepherd for this lost lamb?

Chorus:

There's a somebody I'm longing to see,

I hope that he turns out to be

Someone who'll watch over me.

I'm a little lamb who's lost in the wood.

I know I could always be good

To one who'll watch over me.

Although he may not be the man some girls think of as handsome.

To my heart he carries the key.

Won't you tell him please to put on some speed,

Follow my lead, oh, how I need

Someone who'll watch over me.

Repeat chorus :heart:

Gretchen Wilson ~ One of the boys

I can do most anything a man can do

I can hold my liqour with the best to you

Even take your money in a game of pool

Yea I'd kick your butt, If I wanted to.

And I dont mind when people cuss infront of me

The truth is I dont blush that much at anything

But I still got this little girl inside of me

That likes to be, treated like a queen.

And I know I dont act much like a lady

But I still need to be somebody's baby

Yea you might find me makin' too much noise,

But I'm more than just one of the boys

Yea I'm more than just one of the boys

God knows I aint never been the clingy type

Lookin' for a man to make it all alright

But I dont mind admitting sometimes late at night

Well I need someone, to hold me tight.

And I know I dont act much like a lady

But I still need to be somebody's baby

Yea you might find me makin' too much noise

But I'm more than just one of the boys

Yea I'm more than just one of the boys

I Bet It Stung

(Tegan and Sara)

I know you plan out everything that you want to say

I wish that we didn't have to go about things this way

I love the rock and roll

I love the rock and roll

Don't get so uptight

Don't get so uptight

Go, go away

Tell me you love me like you think you want to be loved

Pull on my hand and say, please just let's make it this way

Artist: Williams Hank Jr

Song: Lost Highway

Album: The Ultimate Collection Buy Hank

I'm a rolling stone, all alone and lost,

For a life of sin, I have paid the cost.

When I pass by, all the people say

"Just another guy on the lost highway."

Just a deck of cards and a jug of wine

And a woman's lies make a life like mine.

Oh, the day we met, I went astray,

I started rollin' down that lost highway.

I was just a lad, nearly twenty-two,

Neither good nor bad, just a kid like you,

And now I'm lost, too late to pray,

Lord, I've paid the cost on the lost highway.

Now, boys, don't start your ramblin' round,

On this road of sin or you're sorrow bound.

Take my advice or you'll curse the day

You started rollin' down that lost highway

I really like this song...it's so simple and pretty. It was a nice fantasy when I first heard it in my early teens....still is.

Our House

Recorded by: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Album: Deja Vu

I'll light the fire, you put the flowers in the vase that you bought today.

Staring at the fire for hours and hours while I listen to you

play your love songs all night long for me, only for me.

Come to me now and rest your head for just five minutes, everything is good.

Such a cozy room, the windows are illuminated by the

sunshine through them, fiery gems for you, only for you.

Our house is a very, very fine house with two cats in the yard, life used to be so hard,

now everything is easy cause of you and our la, la, la…

I have not see Linda Ronstadt sing this song in so many years! On youtube, there are a few versions.....this song brings tears to my eyes....even now...

Long Long Time

written by Gary B. White

Universal MCA Music (ASCAP)

Love will abide, take things in stride

Sounds like good advice but there's no one at my side

And time washes clean love's wounds unseen

That's what someone told me but I don't know what it means.

Cause I've done everything I know to try and make you mine

And I think I'm gonna love you for a long long time

Caught in my fears

Blinking back the tears

I can't say you hurt me when you never let me near

And I never drew one response from you

All the while you fell all over girls you never knew

Cause I've done everything I know to try and make you mine

And I think it's gonna hurt me for a long long time

Wait for the day

You'll go away

Knowing that you warned me of the price I'd have to pay

And life's full of flaws

Who knows the cause?

Living in the memory of a love that never was

Cause I've done everything I know to try and change your mind

and I think I'm gonna miss you for a long long time

Cause I've done everything I know to try and make you mine

And I think I'm gonna love you for a long long time.

Hey, Kay, your welcome... it really is a beautiful song....

"Your Wildest Dreams"

The Moody Blues

Once upon a time

Once when you were mine

I remember skies

Reflected in your eyes

I wonder where you are

I wonder if you

Think about me

Once upon a time

In your wildest dreams

Once the world was new

Our bodies felt the morning dew

That greets the brand new day

We couldn't tear ourselves away

I wonder if you care

I wonder if you still remember

Once upon a time

In your wildest dreams

And when the music plays

And when the words are

Touched with sorrow

When the music plays

I hear the sound

I had to follow

Once upon a time

Once beneath the stars

The universe was ours

Love was all we knew

And all I knew was you

I wonder if you know

I wonder if you think about it

Once upon a time

In your wildest dreams

And when the music plays

And when the words are

Touched with sorrow

When the music plays

And when the music plays

I hear the sound

I had to follow

Once upon a time

Once upon a time

Once when you were mine

I remember skies

Mirrored in your eyes

I wonder where you are

I wonder if you

Think about me

Once upon a time

In your wildest dreams

In your wildest dreams

In your wildest dreams

"I Know You're Out There Somewhere"

The Moody Blues

I know you're out there somewhere

Somewhere, somewhere

I know I'll find you somehow

Somehow, somehow

And somehow I'll return again to you

The mist is lifting slowly

I can see the way ahead

And I've left behind the empty streets

That once inspired my life

And the strength of the emotion

Is like thunder in the air

'Cos the promise that we made each other

Haunts me to the end

I know you're out there somewhere

Somewhere, somewhere

I know you're out there somewhere

Somewhere you can hear my voice

I know I'll find you somehow

Somehow, somehow

I know I'll find you somehow

And somehow I'll return again to you

The secret of your beauty

And the mystery of your soul

I've been searching for in everyone I meet

And the times I've been mistaken

It's impossible to say

And the grass is growing

Underneath our feet

I know you're out there somewhere

Somewhere, somewhere

I know you're out there somewhere

Somewhere you can hear my voice

I know I'll find you somehow

Somehow, somehow

I know I'll find you somehow

And somehow I'll return again to you

From the words that I remember

From my childhood still are true

That there's none so blind

As those who will not see

And to those who lack the courage

And say it's dangerous to try

Well they just don't know

That love eternal will not be denied

I know you're out there somewhere

Somewhere, somewhere

I know you're out there somewhere

Somewhere you can hear my voice

I know I'll find you somehow

Somehow, somehow

I know I'll find you somehow

And somehow I'll return again to you

Yes I know it's going to happen

I can feel you getting near

And soon we'll be returning

To the fountain of our youth

And if you wake up wondering

In the darkness I'll be there

My arms will close around you

And protect you with the truth

I know you're out there somewhere

Somewhere, somewhere

I know you're out there somewhere

Somewhere you can hear my voice

I know I'll find you somehow

Somehow, somehow

I know I'll find you somehow

And somehow I'll return again to you

{I don't know why this song came into my head, but now it's there and it's stuck...:085:}

Leah Andreone

It's Alright, It's OK

Broken doll baby

And she says that life's a waste

It doesn't have to be that way

Dad threw away her mom

Her mom gave up his name

Crucified by their words

Nailed by shame

She stares into the sun

Self-inflicted pain

She sees that they're blind

Why does she take all the blame

The rhyme has changed, compulsion rules

Mary's little lambs are now raised by wolves

A voyeur with wings flashes a cure

She knows forbidden things, they have a lovely lure

It's alright it's ok

Welcome to this life

Killin' time

Just watchin' the grass grow

It's alright it's ok

Welcome to this life

Don't worry sweet baby

Cuz it's over before you know

Persecuted, she's not normal

I envy her strange ways

Seven deadly sins

Seize the hour, seize the day

Her ideas need expression

Her wounds never bleed

Her beauty lives in my eyes

Too bad she can't see

She doesn't try, I watch her spirits die

But giving up the ghost would feel so good

A voyeur with wings flashes a cure

She knows forbidden things, they have a lovely lure

It's alright it's ok

Welcome to this life

Killin' time

Just watchin' the grass grow

It's alright it's ok

Welcome to this life

Don't worry sweet baby

Cuz it's over

It's alright it's ok

Welcome to this life

Killin' time

Just watchin' the grass grow

It's alright it's ok

Welcome to this life

Don't worry sweet baby

Cuz it's over before you know

Crumbling Camelot, idle teardrops

Cloudy diamonds, freebase funhouse

Expecting to fly but she's just standing still

Every time she gets it up she just can't close the deal

So she gives herself another way out

Walks her dog for the 50th time and

Files her nails till they bleed and she cries now

She doesn't have to try

It's alright, it's okay, it's alright.

Higher Love

Steve Winwood

Think about it

there must be higher love

Down in the heart or hidden in the stars above.

Without it life is wasted time

Look inside your heart

I'll look inside mine.

Things look so bad everywhere in this whole world

what is fair?

We walk blind and we try to see

falling behind in what could be.

Bring me a higher love

bring me a higher love

Bring me a higher love -

where's that higher love I keep thinking of?

World's are turning and we're just hanging on

Facing our fear and standing out there alone.

A yearning

and it's real to me

There must be someone who's feeling for me.

Things look so bad everywhere in this whole world

what is fair?

We walk blind and we try to see

falling behind in what could be.

Bring me a higher love

bring me a higher love

Bring me a higher love - I could rise above on a higher love !

I will wait for it

I'm not too late for it.

Until then I'll sing my song to cheer the night along.

I could light the night up with my soul on fire

I could make the sun shine from pure desire.

Let me feel that love come over me

let me feel how strong it could be !

Bring me a higher love ! (12x)

Everytime I hear this song I just get teary eyed. As the story goes this soldier never made it home. It's so beautiful.

Day After Tomorrow by Tom Waits

I got your letter today

And I miss you all so much, here

I can't wait to see you all

And I'm counting the days, dear

I still believe that there's gold

At the end of the world

And I'll come home

To Illinois

On the day after tomorrow

It is so hard

And it's cold here

And I'm tired of taking orders

And I miss old Rockford town

Up by the Wisconsin border

But I miss you won't believe

Shoveling snow and raking leaves

And my plane will touch tomorrow

On the day after tomorrow

I close my eyes

Every night

And I dream that I can hold you

They fill us full of lies

Everyone buys

About what it means to be a soldier

I still don't know how I'm supposed to feel

About all the blood that's been spilled

Look out on the street

Get me back home

On the day after tomorrow

You can't deny

The other side

Don't want to die

Any more than we do

What I'm trying to say,

Is don't they pray

To the same God that we do?

Tell me, how does God choose?

Whose prayers does he refuse?

Who turns the wheel?

And who throws the dice

On the day after tomorrow?

I'm not fighting

For justice

I am not fighting

For freedom

I am fighting

For my life

And another day

In the world here

I just do what I've been told

You're just the gravel on the road

And the one's that are lucky

One's come home

On the day after tomorrow

And the summer

It too will fade

And with it comes the winter's frost, dear

And I know we too are made

Of all the things that we have lost here

I'll be twenty-one today

I've been saving all my pay

And my plane will touch down

On the day after tomorrow

And my plane it will touch down

On the day after tomorrow

"How Do You Keep Love Alive?"

by Ryan Adams

Lord, I miss that girl

On the day we met the sun was shining down

Down on the valley

Riddled with horses running

Crushing them with flowers

I would have picked for her

On the day she was born

She runs through my veins like a long black river

And rattles my cage like a thunderstorm

Oh my soul

What does it mean?

What does it mean?

What does it mean to be so sad?

When someone you love

Someone you love is supposed to make you happy

What do you do

How do you keep love alive?

When it won't

What, what are the words

They use when they know it's over

"We need to talk," or

"I'm confused, maybe later you can come over"

I would've held your mother's hand

On the day you was born

She runs through my veins

Like a long black river and rattles my cage

Like a thunderstorm

Oh, my soul

What does it mean?

What does it mean?

What does it mean to be so sad?

When someone you love

Someone you love is supposed to make you happy

What do you do

How do you keep love alive?

When it won't

How do you keep love alive?
