    Lyrics of Favourite Songs..



    I was inspired by a lexxian or two for this thread... ;) :twisted:

    .... I feel that music, alltogether with it's tone and clarity and lyrics help define or describe ourselves ... ~... please, post the lyrics to your favourite song or songs.
    ..Let music describe you...

    I thought this was a good idea when we were talking about it last night. I have so many favorite songs that it's hard to narrow it down, so for now, I've got it narrowed down to three.

    One of my all-time favorites is:



    The Rose
    Bette Midler

    Some say love, it is a river
    that drowns the tender reed.
    Some say love, it is a razor
    that leaves your soul to bleed.
    Some say love, it is a hunger,
    an endless aching need.
    I say love, it is a flower,
    and you its only seed.

    It's the heart afraid of breaking
    that never learns to dance.
    It's the dream afraid of waking
    that never takes the chance.
    It's the one who won't be taken,
    who cannot seem to give,
    and the soul afraid of dyin'
    that never learns to live.

    When the night has been too lonely
    and the road has been to long,
    and you think that love is only
    for the lucky and the strong,
    just remember in the winter
    far beneath the bitter snows
    lies the seed that with the sun's love
    in the spring becomes the rose.


    I also love AC/DC and my favorite song by them is Shook Me All Night Long:

    She was a fast machine
    She kept her motor clean
    She was the best damn woman I had ever seen
    She had the sightless eyes
    Telling me no lies
    Knockin' me out with those American thighs
    Taking more than her share
    Had me fighting for air
    She told me to come but I was already there

    'Cause the walls start shaking
    The earth was quaking
    My mind was aching
    And we were making it and you -

    CHORUS:
    Shook me all night long
    Yeah you shook me all night long

    Working double time
    On the seduction line
    She was one of a kind, she's just mine all mine
    She wanted no applause
    Just another course
    Made a meal out of me and came back for more
    Had to cool me down
    To take another round
    Now I'm back in the ring to take another swing

    'Cause the walls were shaking
    The earth was quaking
    My mind was aching
    And we were making it and you -

    CHORUS

    And knocked me out and then you
    Shook me all night long
    You had me shakin' and you
    Shook me all night long
    Yeah you shook me
    Well you took me

    You reall took me and you
    Shook me all night long
    Ooooh you
    Shook me all night long
    Yeah, yeah, you
    Shook me all night long

    Your really took me and you
    Yeah you shook me, yeah you shook me
    All night long


    And lastly for another one of my favorite songs is - Hanging by a Moment by Lifehouse:

    Desperate for changing
    Starving for truth
    I'm closer to where I started
    I'm chasing after you
    I'm falling even more in love with you
    Letting go of all I've held onto
    I'm standing here until you make me move
    I'm hanging by a moment here with you

    Forgetting all I'm lacking
    Completely incomplete
    I'll take your invitation
    You take all of me

    Now I'm falling even more in love with you
    Letting go of all I've held onto
    I'm standing here until you make me move
    I'm hanging by a moment here with you
    I'm living for the only thing I know
    I'm running and I'm not quite sure where to go
    And I don't know what I'm diving into
    Just hanging by a moment here with you

    There's nothing else to lose
    There's nothing else to find
    There's nothing in the world
    That could change my mind
    There is nothing else
    There is nothing else
    There is nothing else

    Desperate for changing
    Starving for truth
    I'm closer to where I started
    I'm chasing after you
    I'm falling even more in love with you
    Letting go of all I've held onto
    I'm standing here until you make me move
    I'm hanging by a moment here with you

    I'm living for the only thing I know
    I'm running and I'm not quite sure where to go
    And I don't know what I'm diving into
    Just hanging by a moment here with you
    Just hanging by a moment
    Hanging by a moment
    Hanging by a moment
    Hanging by a moment here with you

    Don't Fence Me In!!



    "Oh give me land,

    ...Lots of land

    Under starry skies above....

    Don't fence me in...!

    Let me straddle my old saddle....

    Under starry skies above...

    Don't fence me in!!

    Let me ride to the place

    Where the West commences...

    Can't stand....

    ........and I can't stand fences

    .....Don't fence me in!!"

    ..........Stanelle

    I like this one by Morrsisey..

    America Is Not The World

    America your head's too big, Because America, Your belly's too big
    And I love you, I just wish you'd stay where you is

    In America, The land of the free, they said, And of opportunity, In a just and a truthful way
    But where the president, Is never black, female or gay, And until that day
    You've got nothing to say to me, To help me believe

    In America, It brought you the hamburger, Well America you know where, You can shove your hamburger
    And don't you wonder, Why in Estonia they say, Hey you, Big fat pig
    You fat pig, You fat pig

    Steely Blue eyes with no love in them, Scan The World,
    And a humourless smile, With no warmth within, Greets the world
    And I, I have got nothing, To offer you
    No-no-no-no-no
    Just this heart deep and true, Which you say you don't need

    See with your eyes, Touch with your hands, please, Hear through your ears, Know in your soul, please
    For haven't you me with you now?
    And I love you, I love you, I love you, And I love you, I love you, I love you
    The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.

    Here are the lyrics to the song I was named after.....I think they describe me perfectly....

    Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night
    And wouldn?t you love to love her
    Takes to the sky like a bird in flight
    And who will be her lover

    All your life you?ve never seen a woman
    Taken by the wind
    Would you stay if she promised you heaven
    Will you ever win

    She is like a cat in the dark
    And then she is the darkness
    She rules her life like a fine skylark
    And when the sky is starless

    All your life you?ve never seen a woman
    Taken by the wind
    Would you stay if she promised you heaven
    Will you ever win
    Will you ever win

    Rhiannon
    Rhiannon
    Rhiannon
    Rhiannon

    She rings like a bell through the night
    And wouldn?t you love to love her
    She rules her life like a bird in flight
    And who will be her lover

    All your life you?ve never seen a woman
    Taken by the wind
    Would you stay if she promised you heaven
    Will you ever win
    Will you ever win

    Rhiannon
    Rhiannon
    Rhiannon

    Oooooh

    Taken by
    Taken by the sky
    Taken by
    Taken by the sky
    Taken by
    Taken by the sky

    Dreams unwind
    Loves a state of mind
    Dreams unwind
    Loves a state of mind

    Fly Me To the Moon
    Frank Sinatra

    Fly me to the moon
    Let me sing among those stars
    Let me see what spring is like
    On Jupiter and mars

    In other words, hold my hand
    In other words, baby kiss me

    Fill my heart with song
    Let me sing forever more
    You are all I long for
    All I worship and adore

    In other words, please be true
    In other words, I love you

    From the Muppet Movie...



    Great idea for a thread, but just a reminder to people to be careful when visiting lyrics sites since they are notorious for adware, spyware, trojans, and all sorts of malware. So try to use sites you can trust (I find using cached pages helps).

    Anyway, here's a song that's meant a lot to me since I was a tadpole.

    Rainbow Connection

    Why are there so many songs about rainbows
    And what's on the other side?
    Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
    And rainbows have nothing to hide.
    So we've been told and some choose to believe it
    I know they're wrong, wait and see.
    Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
    The lovers, the dreamers and me.

    Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
    When wished on the morning star?
    Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it,
    And look what it's done so far.
    What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing
    And what do we think we might see?
    Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
    The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

    All of us under its spell,
    We know that it's probably magic...

    Have you been half asleep? And have you heard voices?
    I've heard them calling my name.
    Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
    The voice might be one and the same
    I've heard it too many times to ignore it
    It's something that I'm s'posed to be...
    Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
    The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

    Laa, da daa dee da daa daa,
    La laa la la laa dee daa doo...
    This post goes to eleven.

    this is a song that makes me laugh my ass off.. esp when drunk..

    :oops: :twisted:

    Just Lose It,
    By Eminem

    Ok..
    Guess who's back?
    Back again
    Shady's back
    Tell a friend
    Whaaaaaaaa

    Now everyone report to the dance floor
    To the dance floor, to the dance floor
    Now everyone report to the dance floor
    Alright Stop!.....Pajama time

    [Verse 1]
    Come here little kiddies, On my lap
    Guess who's back with a brand new rap?
    And I don't mean rap as in a new case of child molestation accusation
    (HA-HA-HA-HA-HA)
    No worries, papa's got a brand new bag of toys
    What else could I possibly do to make noise?
    I done touched on everything, but little boys
    That's not a stab at Michael
    That's just a metaphor, I'm just psycho
    I go a little bit crazy sometimes
    I get a little bit out of control with my rhymes
    Good God, dip, do a little slide
    Bend down, touch your toes and just glide
    Up the center of the dance floor
    Like TP for my bunghole
    And it's cool if you let one go
    Nobody's gonna know, who'd hear it?
    Give a little "poot poot", it's OK! [Fart Sound]
    Oops my cd just skipped
    And everyone just heard you let one rip

    [Chorus]
    Now I'm gonna make you dance
    It's your chance
    Yeah boy shake that ass
    Oops I mean girl girl girl girl
    Girl you know you're my world
    Alright now lose it
    (HA-HA-HA-HA-HA)
    Just lose it
    (HA-HA-HA-HA-HA)
    Go crazy
    (HA-HA-HA-HA-HA)
    Oh baby
    (HA-HA)
    Oh baby, baby
    (HA-HA)

    [Verse 2]
    It's Friday and it's my day
    Just to party all the way to sunday
    Maybe til monday, I dunno what day
    Everyday's just a holiday
    Crusin' on the freeway
    Feelin' kinda breezy
    Got the top down, lettin' my hair blow
    I dunno where I'm goin'
    All I know is when I get there
    Someone's gonna "touch my body"

    Excuse me miss, I don't mean to sound like a jerk
    But I'm feelin' just a little stressed out from work
    Could you punch me in the stomach and pull my hair?
    Spit on me, maybe gouge my eyes out? (Yeah)
    Now, what's your name girl?
    What's your sign?
    [Dr Dre] "Man, you must be up out your mind"
    DRE! (HA-HA)
    Beer Goggles! blind!
    I'm just tryna unwind now I'm

    [Chorus]
    Now I'm gonna make you dance
    It's your chance
    Yeah boy shake that ass
    Oops I mean girl girl girl girl
    Girl you know you're my world
    Alright now lose it
    (HA-HA-HA-HA-HA)
    Just lose it
    (HA-HA-HA-HA-HA)
    Go crazy
    (HA-HA-HA-HA-HA)
    Oh baby
    (HA-HA)
    Oh baby, baby
    (HA-HA)

    [Verse 3]
    It's Tuesday and I'm locked up
    I'm in jail and I don't know what happend
    They say I was running butt naked
    Down the street screaming
    (HA-HA-HA-HA-HA)
    Well I'm sorry, I don't remember
    All I know is this much
    I'm not guilty
    They said, "Save it, boy we gotcha you on tape
    yellin' at an old lady 'touch my body!'"

    Now this is the part where the rap breaks down
    It gets real intense, no one makes a sound
    Everything looks like it's 8 Mile now
    The beat comes back and everybody lose themselves
    Snap back to reality
    Look it's B.Rabbit!
    Yo you signed me up to battle!?
    I'm a grown man!
    Chubba chubba chubba chubba chubba chubbie
    I don't have any lines to go right here so, chubba teletubbie!
    Fella's (WHAT?!) Fella's (WHAT?!)
    Grab you left nut, make right one jealous (what?)
    Black girls
    White girls
    Skinny girls
    Fat girls
    Tall girls
    Small girls
    I'm callin' all girls
    Everyone report to the dance floor
    It's your chance for a little romance whore
    Butt squeezin' it's the season
    Just go (HA-HA-HA-HA)
    It's so appeasin'

    [Chorus]
    Now I'm gonna make you dance
    It's your chance
    Yeah boy shake that ass
    Oops I mean girl girl girl girl
    Girl you know you're my world
    Alright now lose it
    (HA-HA-HA-HA-HA)
    Just lose it
    (HA-HA-HA-HA-HA)
    Go crazy
    (HA-HA-HA-HA-HA)
    Oh baby
    (HA-HA)
    Oh baby, baby
    (HA-HA)

    [Outro]
    UmMmMmm touch my body
    UmMmMmm touch my body
    Ooh boy just touch my body
    I mean girl just touch my body

    The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.

    Imagine by John Lennon has allways been one of my favorites

    Imagine there's no Heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace

    You may say that I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world

    You may say that I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one
    God may have created man before woman, but there is allways a rough draft before the masterpiece

    Reach out and touch faith

    Your own personal jesus

    Reach out and touch faith
