lyrics that hit home...
#61
Hey You...Pink Floyd (this really hits home...always makes me shiver)




Hey you, out there in the cold
Getting lonely, getting old
Can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles
Can you feel me?
Hey you, dont help them to bury the light
Don't give in without a fight.

Hey you, out there on your own
Sitting naked by the phone
Would you touch me?
Hey you, with you ear against the wall
Waiting for someone to call out
Would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home.

But it was only fantasy.
The wall was too high,
As you can see.
No matter how he tried,
He could not break free.
And the worms ate into his brain.

Hey you, standing in the road
always doing what you're told,
Can you help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall,
Breaking bottles in the hall,
Can you help me?
Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall.

One of the finest performances I've ever seen.






Don't think I can't feel there's something wrong
You've been the sweetest part of my life so long
I look in your eyes, there's a distant light
And you and I know there'll be a storm tonight
This is getting serious
Are you thinking 'bout you or us

[Chorus]
Don't say what you're about to say
Look back before you leave my life
Be sure before you close that door
Before you roll those dice
Baby think twice

Baby think twice for the sake of our love, for the memory
For the fire and the faith that was you and me
Baby I know it ain't easy when your soul cries out for a higher ground
'Coz when you're halfway up, you're always halfway down
But baby this is serious
Are you thinking 'bout you or us

[Chorus]

Baby this is serious
Are you thinking 'bout you or us

Don't say what you're about to say
Look back before you leave my life
Be sure before you close that door
Before you roll those dice

Don't do what you're about to do
My everything depends on you
And whatever it takes, I'll sacrifice
Before you roll those dice
Baby think twice
Still wondering what I'll be when I grow up.

Carole King...Beleive in Humanity

....I bought this LP the day it came out in the 70s...I totally relate to these two songs and I love her positive attitude and empathy for other people....
'



Believe In Humanity lyrics

If you read the papers you may see
History in the making
You'll read what they say life is all about
They say it's there for the taking

Yea, you should really check it out
If you want to know what's shaking
But don't tell me 'bout the things you've heard
Maybe I'm wrong but I want to believe in humanity

I know it's often true, sad to say
We have been unkind to one another
Tell me how many times has the golden rule
Been applied by man to his brother

Well I believe if I really looked at what's going on
I would lose faith I never could recover
So don't tell me 'bout the things you've heard
Maybe I'm wrong but I want to believe in humanity

Maybe I'm living with my head in the sand
I just want to see people giving
I want to believe in my fellow man
Yes, I want to believe


Carole King...Welfare Symphony




Welfare Symphony lyrics

Welfare workers prying into her life
Was she really someone's wife and where was he?
She often cried as they left her without a shred of pride

She had so many things to think about
So many children to feed
She had need of something that would ease her mind

Store front religion, play the numbers
She had trouble in her time, in her time, in her time
She had so much trouble in her time

Even Chas 'n Dave get sentimental occasionally.






I Wish I Could Write A Love Song

I’ve tried to write a love song, that shows the way I feel
But perhaps I just ain’t got it, perhaps I never will
I wish that I could write down words, that I want you to see
Wish I could write a love song, just to you from me

I write the words down, and change them all around
‘cos I ain’t too sure, they look all wrong, it’s just another song
It’s all been done before, and it’s got to mean much more

I wish that I could write a love song, that shows the way I feel
But perhaps I just ain’t got it, perhaps I never will
Rock & roll songs come easy, rock & roll songs are dead easy
Perhaps it’s simply that I love you, more than words can say

Is it that I feel silly, when I let my feelings show
Or am I afraid to give too much in case one day you go
If I give in to my emotions, then I might get hurt
If one day you run away, with my uncle Bert
But I’m making fun again, trust me to make a joke, out of anything,
Wish I could think of lines, wish I could make up rhymes
Can’t think of anything, good to sing

Perhaps it’s simply that I love you more than words can say
Perhaps I’ll write a love song, just for you one day
Still wondering what I'll be when I grow up.

The closest to what I've been feeling for the past few months.



Sometimes I wish I never felt the influence of you
'Cause now I feel the disconnect, like an open wound
Where you once were, there is a space that runs as deep as hell
But every morning when I wake I tell myself
Don’t be fooled by your emptiness,
There’s so much more room for happiness
Don’t be fooled by your emptiness,
There’s so much more room for happiness

Sometimes it’s worth to have lost than to have never had at all
'Cause it’s a curse to feel loved then to feel it all dissolved
Where you once were, there is a space that runs as deep as hell
But every morning when I wake I tell myself
Don’t be fooled by your emptiness,
There’s so much more room for happiness
Don’t be fooled by your emptiness,
There’s so much more room for happiness

Don’t be fooled by your emptiness,
There’s so much more room for happiness
Don’t be fooled by your emptiness,
There’s so much more room for happiness

The morning light is sneaking through your window
You don't have a shadow of a doubt
Though you're alone
You're not on your own
You'll figure it out

The people on the street keep you guessing
You try to judge the look in their eyes
And the beautiful girls are lost in their worlds
But you found your way here
And you're going to survive

Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam) has such a beautiful soul. I've loved his work since time out of memory.

The lyrics to Moonshadow always make me a bit teary-eyed....


I'm being followed by a moon shadow
Moon shadow moon shadow
Leaping and hopping on a moon shadow
Moon shadow moon shadow
And if I ever lost my hands
Lose my plough, lose my land
Oh, if I ever lose my hands- Oh, if...
I wont have to work no more
And if I ever lose my eyes
If my colours all run dry
And if I ever lose my eyes - Oh,
I won't have to cry no more
Yes, I'm being followed by a moon shadow
Moon shadow moon shadow
Leaping and hopping on a moonshadow
Moon shadow moon shadow
And if I ever lose my legs
I won't moan and I won't beg
Oh if I ever lose my legs- Oh if...
I won't have to walk no more
And if I ever lose my mouth
All my teeth, north and south
Yes, if I ever lose my mouth- Oh if...
I won't have to talk...
Did it take long to find me
I ask the faithful light
Did it take long to find me
And are you going to stay the night
I'm being followed by a moon shadow
Moon shadow moon shadow
Moon shadow moon shadow
Moon shadow moon shadow

Black Eyed Peas - Anxiety



I feel like I wanna smack somebody
Turn around and bitch slap somebody
But I ain't goin' out bro (no, no, no)
I ain't givin' into it (no, no, no)
Anxieties bash my mind in
Terrorizing my soul like Bin Laden
But I ain't fallin' down bro (no, no, no)
I won't lose control bro (no, no, no)
Shackle and chained
My soul feels stained
I can't explain got an ich on my brain
Lately my whole aim is to maintain
And regain control of my mainframe
My bloods boiling its beatin' out propaine
My train of thoughts more like a runaway train
I'm in a fast car drivin' in a fast lane
In the rain and I'm might just hydroplaine

I don't fear none of my enemies
And I don't fear bullets from Uzi's
I've been dealing with something thats worse than these
That'll make you fall to your knees and thats the
The anxiety the sane and the insane rivalry
Paranoias brought me to my knees
Lord please please please
Take away my anxiety
The sane and the insane rivalry
Paranoias brought me to my knees
Lord please please please
Take away my anxiety

My head keeps running away my brother
The only thing making me stay my brother
But I won't give into it bro (no, no, no)
Gotta get myself back now
God, I can't let my mind be
Tell my enemy is my own
Gots to find my inner wealth
Gots to hold up my thoughts
I can't get caught (no, no, no)
I can't give into it now (no, no, no)
Emotions are trapped set on lock
Got my brain stuck goin through the motions
Only I know what's up
I'm filled up with pain
Tryin' to gain my sanity
Everywhere I turn its a dead end infront of me
With nowhere to go gotta shake this anxiety
Got me feelin' strange paranoia took over me
And its weighin' me down
And I can't run any longer, yo
Knees to the ground

I don't fear none of my enemies
And I don't fear bullets from Uzi's
I've been dealing with something thats worse than these
That'll make you fall to your knees and thats the
The anxiety the sane and the insane rivalry
Paranoias brought me to my knees
Lord please please please
Take away my anxiety
The sane and the insane rivalry
Paranoias brought me to my knees
Lord please please please
Take away my anxiety...

This woman couldn't write a bad song if she tried.



Still wondering what I'll be when I grow up.
