Stand Here With Me

Creed

You always reached out to me and

helped me believe

All those memories we share

I will cherish every one of them

The truth of it is there's a right way to live

And you showed me

So now you live on in the words of a song

You're a melody

'Cause you stand here with me, now yeah yeah...

'Cause you stand here with me, now yeah yeah...

Just when fear blinded me

you taught me to dream

I'll give you everything I am,

and still fall short of

What you've done for me

In this life, that I live,

I hope, I can give, love unselfishly

I've learned the world is bigger than me,

You're my daily dose of reality

'Cause you stand here with me,now yeah yeah...

'Cause you stand here with me,now yeah yeah...

On and on we sing

On and on we sing

on and on we sing

on and on we sing

On and on we sing this song

on and on we sing this song

'Cause you stand here with me

Running On Empty

Jackson Browne

Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels

Looking back at the years gone by like so many summer fields

In sixty-five I was seventeen and running up one-o-one

I dont know where Im running now, Im just running on

Running on - running on empty

Running on - running blind

Running on - running into the sun

But Im running behind

Gotta do what you can just to keep your love alive

Trying not to confuse it with what you do to survive

In sixty-nine I was twenty-one and I called the road my own

I dont know when that road turned onto the road Im on

Running on - running on empty

Running on - running blind

Running on - running into the sun

But Im running behind

Everyone I know, everywhere I go

People need some reason to believe

I dont know about anyone but me

If it takes all night, thatll be all right

If I can get you to smile before I leave

Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels

I dont know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels

I look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through

Looking into their eyes I see them running too

Running on - running on empty

Running on - running blind

Running on - running into the sun

But Im running behind

Honey you really tempt me

You know the way you look so kind

Id love to stick around but Im running behind

You know I dont even know what Im hoping to find

Running into the sun but Im running behind

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, Ill be there

If you ever need holding

And no holding back, Ill see you through

Sky blue and black

Where the touch of the lover ends

And the soul of the friend begins

Theres 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 Id 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 itll never fold back

Sky blue and black

And Id have fought the world for you

If I thought that you wanted me to

Or put aside what was true or untrue

If Id known thats 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, Ill be there

If you ever need holding

And no holding back, Ill see you through

Youre the color of the sky

Reflected in each store-front window pane

Youre the whispering and the sighing

Of my tires in the rain

Youre the hidden cost and the thing thats lost

In everything I do

Yeah and Ill never stop looking for you

In the sunlight and the shadows

And the faces on the avenue

Thats the way love is

Thats the way love is

Thats the way love is

Sky blue and black

:heart:

"Amen"- Kid Rock

It's another night in hell

Another child won't live to tell

Can you imagine what it's like to starve to death ?

And as we sit free and well

Another soldier has to yell

Tell my wife and children I love them in his last breath

C'mon now, amen...

Habitual offenders, scumbag lawyers with agendas

I'll tell you sometimes people, I don't know what's worse

Natural disasters or these wolves-in-sheeps-clothes pastors

Now damn it I'm scared to send my children to church

And how can we seek salvation when our nation's race relations

Got me feeling guilty of being white ?

But faith in human nature, our creator and our savior, I'm no saint

But I believe in what is right

C'mon now, amen...

I said amen...

Stop pointing fingers and take some blame

Pull your future away from the flame

Open up your mind and start to live

Stop short changing your neighbors

Living off hand outs and favors, and maybe

Give a little bit more than you got to give

Simplify, testify, identify, rectify

And if I get high stop being so uptight

It's only human nature and I am not a stranger

So baby won't you stay with me tonight

It's a matter of salvation from the patience up above,

So don't give up so damn easy on the one you love, one you love

Somewhere you got a brother, sister, friend, grandmother, niece or nephew

Just dying to be with you

You know there's someone out there who unconditionally, religiously, loves you

So just hold on 'cause you know it's true

And if you can take the pain

And you can withstand anything, and one day

Stand hand in hand with the truth

I said amen...

I said amen...

Amen

(R.J. Ritchie)

For all of the Farmers who have been dealing with loss lately...

"Walking Higher" by Heather Nova

I carry you with me, a ghost inside

And in these shattered arms, you're still alive.

I carry you with me, a holy shrine

And dogs and angels follow right behind.

And could I be walking higher,

Could I be right beside her ?

The bones they buried, will feed the trees

But every word you ever spoke, is still in me.

And could I be walking higher,

Could I be right beside her ?

And I will feel for you in the music,

And I will send that river home.

And I will cry for you sometimes,

When the night is down.

And I raise my head up to the mountains,

Talk to the birds and I fly,

because the spirit lives on,

When the body dies.

And could I be walking higher,

Could I be right beside her?

Could I be walking higher,

Could I be right beside her?

"What Is The Measure Of Your Success ?" by Steve Taylor

In this city I confess

I am driven to possess

Answer no one, let them guess

Are you someone I impress?

I am a big boss with a short fuse

I have a nylon carpet and rubber shoes

And when I shake hands you'll get a big shock

You'll be begging for mercy when the champ is through

You'd better believe I'll put the clamps on you

In this city, be assured

Some will rise above the herd

Feed the fatted, leave the rest

This is how we won the West

I am a safebox, I am the inner sanctum when the door locks

I own the passkey

You say you can't take it with you?

We'll see about that, won't we?

Push, push, push...

In this city I confess

God is mammon, more is less

Off like lemmings at the gun

I know better, still I run

I am an old man and the word came

But you can't buy time with a good name

Now when the heirs come around like buzzards on a kill

I see my reflection in their envious eyes

I'd watch it all burn to buy another sunrise

Some men find the fire escape

Old men learn it all too late

Push, push, push the alarm

Old MacDonald's bought the farm

What is the measure of your success ?

It's very simple but ever so powerful.

Written by Woody Guthrie but performed by Arlo Guthrie.

My Peace

My peace my peace is all I've got that I can give to you

My peace is all I ever had that's all I ever knew

I give my peace to green and black and red and white and blue

My peace my peace is all I've got that I can give to you

My peace, my peace is all I've got and all I've ever known

My peace is worth a thousand times more than anything I own

I pass my peace around and about 'cross hands of every hue;

I guess my peace is justa 'bout all I've got to give to you

That is beautiful, PJ.....

I love this song...

Ferry 'Cross The Mersey

(Gerry Marsden)

Life goes on day after day

Hearts torn in every way

So ferry 'cross the Mersey

'cause this land's the place I love

and here I'll stay

People they rush everywhere

Each with their own secret care

So ferry 'cross the Mersey

and always take me there

The place I love

People around every corner

They seem to smile and say

We don't care what your name is boy

We'll never turn you away

So I'll continue to say

Here I always will stay

So ferry 'cross the Mersey

'cause this land's the place I love

and here I'll stay

and here I'll stay

Here I'll stay

I live for you- George Harrison

ALL ALONE IN THIS WORLD OF MINE,

NOT A CARE FOR THIS WORLD HAVE I,

ONLY YOU KEEP MY EYES OPEN WIDE,

YES, IT'S TRUE, I LIVE FOR YOU.

NOT A THING IN THIS WORLD DO I OWN,

ONLY SADNESS AND MOURN THAT IS GROWN

IN THIS DARKNESS I WAIT FOR THE DAY,

YES, IT'S TRUE, I LIVE FOR YOU.

THROUGH MANY TEARS I'VE WAIT,

THROUGH MANY TEARS I'VE WEPT.

ALL THIS TIME MY THOUGHTS RETURN TO YOU,

GIVE MY LOVE THAT IS ALL I CAN DO,

WAIT IN LINE TILL I FEEL YOU INSIDE,

YES, IT'S TRUE, I LIVE FOR YOU.

THROUGH MANY YEARS I'VE WAIT,

THROUGH MANY TEARS I'VE WEPT.

ALL THIS TIME MY THOUGHTS RETURN TO YOU,

GIVE MY LOVE THAT IS ALL I CAN DO,

WAIT IN LINE TILL I FEEL YOU INSIDE,

YES, IT'S TRUE, I LIVE FOR YOU.

Do you want more?

Blow away- George Harrison

Day turned black, sky ripped apart

Rained for a year 'til it dampened my heart

Cracks and leaks

The floorboards caught rot

About to go down

I had almost forgot.

All I got to do is to love you

All I got to be is, be happy

All it's got to take is some warmth to make it

Blow Away, Blow Away, Blow Away.

Sky cleared up, day turned to bright

Closing both eyes now the head filled with light

Hard to remember what a state I was in

Instant amnesia

Yang to the Yin.

All I got to do is to love you

All I got to be is, be happy

All it's got to take is some warmth to make it

Blow Away, Blow Away, Blow Away.

Wind blew in, cloud was dispersed

Rainbows appearing, the pressures were burst

Breezes a-singing, now feeling good

The moment had passed

Like I knew that it should.

All I got to do is to love you

All I got to be is, be happy

All it's got to take is some warmth to make it

Blow Away, Blow Away, Blow Away.

In Tall Buildings-John Hartford

Someday, baby, when I am a man,

and other's have taught me

the best that they can

they'll sell me a suit

and cut off my hair

and send me to work in tall buildings

and it's goodbye to the sunshine

goodbye to the dew

goodbye to the flowers

and goodbye to you

I'm off to the subway

I must not be late

going to work in tall buildings

now when I retire

and my life is my own

I made all the payments

it's time to go home

and wonder what happened

betwixt and between

when I went to work in tall buildings

and it's goodbye to the sunshine

goodbye to the dew

goodbye to the flowers

and goodbye to you

I'm off to the subway

I mustn't be late

going to work in tall buildings

Little Wing

Jimi Hendrix

Well shes walking through the clouds

With a circus mind that's running round

Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams and fairy tales

That's all she ever thinks about

Riding with the wind.

When I'm sad, she comes to me

With a thousand smiles, she gives to me free

Its alright she says its alright

Take anything you want from me, anything

Anything.

Fly on little wing,

Yeah yeah, yeah, little wing

Buckets of Rain-Bob Dylan:heart:

Buckets of rain

Buckets of tears

Got all them buckets coming out of my ears

Buckets of moonbeams in my hand

You got all the love honey baby

I can stand.

I been meek

And hard like and oak

I seen pretty people disappear like smoke

Friends will arrive friends will disappear

If you want me honey baby

I'll be there.

I like your smile

And your fingertips

I like the way that you move your lips

I like the cool way you look at me

Everything about you is bringing me

Misery.

Little red wagon

Little red bike

I ain't no monkey but I know what I like

I like the way you love me strong and slow

I'm taking you with me honey baby

When I go.

Life is sad

Life is a bust

All ya can do is do what you must

You do what you must do and ya do it well

I'll do it for you honey baby

Can't you tell ?

Kate Micucci- Mr.Moon

One day

The moon got tired of being

Up in the sky

He wandered

Down through the starlight

And landed on the oceanside

And he smiled while

He jumped in the water

And laughed about

As he danced in the sand

He put on

His swim trunks and snorkel

And guess what

Mr. Moon swam

Did I tell you

That moonbeams are heavy?

And therefore

Mr. Moon sank

He fell down

Through the seawalls of seaweed

And landed

At the bottom of a tank

And he sat there

With the starfish and jellyfish

And laughed about

The sharks and the whales

They drank lots

Of Miller Lights and Heinekens

And laughed about

All of their tales

Oh, Mr. Moon

The stars are shining for you in the night sky

Please come home

Oh, Mr. Moon

The sun is shining for you until it goes away

And then it's dark

And then it's dark

And then it's dark

There's smoke on the water, it's been there since June,

Tree trunks uprooted, 'neath the high crescent moon

Feel the pulse and vibration and the rumbling force

Somebody is out there beating the dead horse.

She never said nothing there was nothing she wrote,

She gone with the man

In the long black coat.

Just a little from Bob Dylan's..The Man in the Long Black Coat

I´m listening this beautiful song:

WATERLOO SUNSET- THE KINKS

Dirty old river

must you keep rolling,

flowing into the night

People so busy

make me feel dizzy

taxi light shines so bright.

But I don't feel afraid

as long as I gaze at

Waterloo Sunset

I am in Paradise.

Every day I look at the

world from my window

chilly, chilly is the evening time

Waterloo Sunset's fine.

Terry meets Julie

Waterloo Station

every Friday night

But I'm so lazy

don't want to wonder

I stay at home at night

But I don't feel afraid

as long as I gaze at

Waterloo Sunset

I am in Paradise.

Every day I look at the

world from my window

chilly, chilly is the evening time

Waterloo sunset's fine

Millions of people

swarming like flies

round

Waterloo Underground

but Terry and Julie

crossover the river

where they feel safe and sound

And they don't feel afraid

as long as they gaze at

Waterloo Sunset

they are in Paradise

these streets

by paolo nutini, pete wilkinson & sara erasmus

(performed by paolo nutini)

cross the border, into the big bad world

where it takes you 'bout an hour just to cross the street

just to stumble across another poor old soul

from the dreary old lanes to the high street madness

I fight with my brains to believe my eyes

and it's harder than you think to delay the sadness

that creeps up my spine and haunts me through the night

life is good and the girls are gorgeous, suddenly the air smells much greener now

and i'm wandering around with a half pack of cigarettes

searching for the change that I've lot somewhere

these streets have too many names for me

I'm used to Glenfield Road and spending my time down in Orchy

I'll get used to this eventually I know, I know

where'd days go when all we did was play

and the stress that we were under wasn't stress at all

just a run and a jump into a harmless fall

from walking by a high rise to a landmark square

you see millions of people with millions of cares

and I struggle to the train to make my way home

I look at the people as they sit there alone

Life is good and the sun is shining, everybody floods to their ideal space

and the children all smile as the boats shuffle by them

trying to pretend that they've got some space

these streets have too many names for me

I'm used to Glenfield Road and spending my time down in Orchy

I'll get used to this eventually I know, I know

life is good and the girls are gorgeous, suddenly the air smells much greener now

and i'm wandering around with a half pack of cigarettes

searching for the change that I've lot somewhere

these streets have too many names for me

I'm used to Glenfield Road and spending my time down in Orchy

I'll get used to this eventually I know, I know

these streets have too many names for me

I'm used to Glenfield Road and spending my time down in Orchy

I'll get used to this eventually I know, I know

I know, I know, 'cause you keep telling me so

"Walking 'Round in Women's Underwear" performed by Bob Rivers Comedy Troupe

(sung to the tune of "Walking in a Winter Wonderland")

Lacey things the wife is missin'.

Didn't ask for her permission

I'm wearing her clothes,

Her silk panty hose.

Walking 'round in women's underwear

In the store, there's a teddy.

With little straps, like spaghetti.

It holds me so tight,

Like handcuffs at night.

Walking 'round in womens underwear

In the office there's a guy named Melvin.

He pretends that I am Murphy Brown.

He'll say "Are you ready?"

I'll say, "Woah man!

Lets wait untill the wife is out of town !"

Later on, if you wanna,

We can dress like Madonna.

Put on some eye shade and join the parade.

Walking 'round in women's underwear.

Lacey things, missing.

Didn't ask, permission.

Wearing her clothes, silk panty hose.

Walking 'round in women's underwear.

Walking 'round in women's underwear.

Walking 'round in women's underwear......

artist: George Harrison lyrics

title: The Answer's At The End

album: Extra Texture - Read All About It

Scan not a friend with a microscopic glass

You know his faults, now let the foibles pass

Life is one long enigma, my friend

So read on, read on, the answer's at the end

Don't be so hard on the ones that you love

It's the ones that you love we think so little of

Don't be so hard on the ones that you need

It's the ones that you need we think so little of

The speech of flowers excels the flowers of speech

But what's often in your heart, is the hardest thing to reach

And life is one long mystery, my friend

So live on, live on, the answer's at the end

Don't be so hard on the ones that you love

It's the ones that you love we think so little of

Don't be so hard on the ones that you need

It's the ones that you need we think so little of

Don't be so hard on the ones that you love

It's the ones that you love we think so little of

Don't be so hard on the ones that you need

It's the ones that you need we think so little of

Oh, we think so little of the ones that we love, sometimes

Isn't it a pity how we hurt

The ones that we love the most of all

The ones we shouldn't hurt at all

You know my faults, now let the foibles pass

'Cause life is one long enigma, my friend

Live on, live on, the answer's at the end

Don't be so hard on the ones that you love

It's the ones that you love we think so little of

Don't be so hard on the ones that you need

It's the ones that you need we think so little of

Don't be so hard on the ones that you love

It's the ones that you love we think so little of

Don't be so hard on the ones that you need

It's the ones that you need we think so little of

The ones that we love

We hurt the most of all, sometimes

And isn't it a pity how

We hurt the ones that we love (fade)

artist: George Harrison lyrics

title: Isn't It A Pity (Version 1)

album: All Things Must Pass

Isn't it a pity

Now, isn't it a shame

How we break each other's hearts

And cause each other pain

How we take each other's love

Without thinking anymore

Forgetting to give back

Isn't it a pity

Some things take so long

But how do I explain

When not too many people

Can see we're all the same

And because of all their tears

Their eyes can't hope to see

The beauty that surrounds them

Isn't it a pity

Isn't it a pity

Isn't is a shame

How we break each other's hearts

And cause each other pain

How we take each other's love

Without thinking anymore

Forgetting to give back

Isn't it a pity

Forgetting to give back

Isn't it a pity

Forgetting to give back

Now, isn't it a pity

(6 times, fade the 6th:)

What a pity

What a pity, pity, pity

What a pity

What a pity, pity, pity

^ How deep is that song, it´s one of my favorite

THAT IS ALL- George Harrison

That is all I want to say

Our love could save the day.

That is all I'm waiting for

To try to love you more.

And that is all I want to do

To get right next to you.

That is all I'm living for,

Your love and nothing more.

And that is all.

Times I find it hard to say

With useless words getting in my way.

Silence often says much more

Than trying to say what's been said before.

That is all I want from you

A smile when I feel blue.

That is all I'm waiting for

Your love and nothing more.

And that is all

Silence often says much more

Than trying to say what's been said before.

But that is all I want to do

To give my love to you.

That is all I'm living for,

Please let me love you more.

And that is all.

(From Living in the material world)
