Fell On Black Days

 

Whatsoever I’ve feared has come to life
Whatsoever I’ve fought off became my life
Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots have faded and now I’m doing time
Now I’m doing time
‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

Whomsoever I’ve cured, I’ve sickened now
And whomsoever I’ve cradled, I’ve put you down
I’m a search light soul they say
But I can’t see it in the night

I’m only faking when I get it right
When I get it right

‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate? Yeah

So what you wanted to see good
Has made you blind
And what you wanted to be yours
Has made it mine

Don’t you lock up something
That you wanted to see fly
Hands are for shaking
No, not tying, no, not tying

I sure don’t mind a change
I sure don’t mind a change
Yeah, I sure don’t mind, sure don’t mind a change
I sure don’t mind a change

‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

I sure don’t mind a change

(For my Sweet Amy Melissa. Damn, I love you).

 

“Melissa”

Crossroads, seem to come and go, yeah.
The gypsy flies from coast to coast
Knowing many, loving none,
Bearing sorrow havin’ fun,
But back home he’ll always run
To sweet Melissa…

 

Freight train, each car looks the same, all the same.
And no one knows the Gypsy’s name

No one hears his lonely sighs,
There are no blankets where he lies.
In all his deepest dreams the Gypsy flies
with sweet Melissa…

Again the morning comes,
Again he’s on the run,
Sunbeams shining through his hair,
Appearing not to have a care.
Well, pick up your gear and Gypsy roll on, roll on.

Crossroads, will you ever let him go? (Lord, Lord)
Will you hide the dead man’s ghost,
Or will he lie, beneath the clay,
or will his spirit float away?

But I know that he won’t stay without Melissa.

Yes I know that he won’t stay without Melissa.

-Allman Brothers Band

‘From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea’

Every time we do this
I fall for her
Wave after wave after wave
It’s all for her
I know this can’t be wrong I say
(and I’ll lie to keep her happy)
As long as I know that you know
That today I belong
Right here with you
Right here with you…
And so we watch the sun come up
From the edge of the deep green sea
And she listens like her head’s on fire
Like she wants to believe in me
So I try
Put your hands in the sky
Surrender
Remember
We’ll be here forever
And we’ll never say goodbye

I’ve never been so
Colorfully-see-through-head before
I’ve never been so
Wonderfully-me-you-want-some-more
And all I want is to keep it like this
You and me alone
A secret kiss
And don’t go home
Don’t go away
Don’t let this end
Please stay
Not just for today

Never never never never never let me go she says
Hold me like this for a hundred thousand million days
But suddenly she slows
And looks down at my breaking face
Why do you cry? what did I say?
But it’s just rain I smile
Brushing my tears away

I wish I could just stop
I know another moment will break my heart
Too many tears
Too many times
Too many years I’ve cried over you

How much more can we use it up?
Drink it dry?
Take this drug?
Looking for something forever gone
But something
We will always want?

Why why why are you letting me go? she says
I feel you pulling back
I feel you changing shape
And just as I’m breaking free
She hangs herself in front of me
Slips her dress like a flag to the floor
And hands in the sky
Surrenders it all

I wish I could just stop
I know another moment will break my heart
Too many tears
Too many times
Too many years I’ve cried for you
It’s always the same
Wake up in the rain
Head in pain
Hung in shame
A different name
Same old game
Love in vain
And miles and miles and miles and miles and miles
Away from home again

-The Cure

 

“Bleeding Me”

I’m diggin’ my way
I’m diggin’ my way to something
I’m diggin’ my way to somethin’ better

I’m pushin’ to stay
I’m pushin’ to stay with something
I’m pushin’ to stay with something better

I’m sowing the seeds
I’m sowing the seeds I’ve taken
I’m sowing the seeds I take for granted

This thorn in my side
This thorn in my side is from the tree
This thorn in my side is from the tree I’ve planted

It tears me and I bleed
And I bleed

Caught under wheel’s roll
I take the leech I’m bleeding me
Can’t stop to save my soul
I take the leash that’s leading me
I’m bleeding me
I can’t take it
Caught under wheel’s roll
The bleeding of me
Of me
The bleeding of me

Caught under wheel’s roll
I take the leech I’m bleeding me
Can’t stop to save my soul
I take the leash that’s leading me
I’m bleeding me
I can’t take it
Caught under wheel’s roll
The bleeding of me
The bleeding of me

I am the beast that feeds the feast
I am the blood, I am release
Come make me pure
Bleed me a cure
I’m caught, I’m caught, I’m caught under

Caught under wheel’s roll
I take thay leech I’m bleeding me
Can’t stop to save my soul
I take the leash that’s leading me
I’m bleeding me
I can’t take it, I can’t take it, I can’t take it
The bleeding of me

Come on
Bleed me

I’m digging my way
I’m digging my way to something
I’m digging my way to something better

I’m pushing to stay
I’m pushing to stay with something
I’m pushing to stay with something better

With something better

-Metallica

 

“A Strange Day”

Give me your eyes
That I might see the blind man kissing my hands
The sun is humming
My head turns to dust as he plays on his knees
As he plays on his knees

And the sand
And the sea grows
I close my eyes
Move slowly through drowning waves
Going away on a strange day

And I laugh as I drift in the wind
Blind
Dancing on a beach of stone
Cherish the faces as they wait for the end
Sudden hush across the water
And we’re here again

And the sand
And the sea grows
I close my eyes
Move slowly through drowning waves
Going away
On a strange day

My head falls backs
And the walls crash down
And the sky
And the impossible
Explode
Held for one moment I remember a song
An impression of sound
Then everything is gone
Forever

A strange day

-The Cure

 

“You’ve Seen The Butcher”

Don’t wanna take it slow
I wanna take you home
And watch the world explode
From underneath your glow

Yea I wanna watch the way…
You creep across my skull…

You slowly enter
Cause you know my room
And then crawl your knees off
Before you shake my tomb

I wanna watch you close
I need to see for sure
And then the tape is on
Who do you think we can show?

I wanna watch the way…
You creep across my skull…

You slowly enter
Cause you know my room
And then crawl your knees off
Before you shake my tomb

You slowly enter
Cause you know my room
And then crawl your knees off
Before you shake my tomb

You enter slowly
You know my room
You crawl your knees off
And then you shake my tomb
I wanna watch the way…
You creep across my skull…

You slowly enter
Because you know my room
And then crawl your knees off
Before you shake my tomb

You enter slowly,
You know my room,
You crawl your knees off
And then u shake my tomb…

-Deftones

Last Goodbye

This is our last goodbye
I hate to feel the love between us die
But it’s over
Just hear this and then i’ll go
You gave me more to live for
More than you’ll ever know

This is our last embrace
Must I dream and always see your face?
Why can’t we overcome this wall?
Baby, maybe it’s just because i didn’t know you at all

Kiss me, please kiss me
But kiss me out of desire, baby, not consolation
You know it makes me so angry ’cause i know that in time
I’ll only make you cry, this is our last goodbye

Did you say  “no, this can’t happen to me,”
And did you rush to the phone to call
Was there a voice unkind in the back of your mind?
Saying “maybe, I didn’t know him at all,”
“I didn’t know him at all,” “I didn’t know…”

Well, the bells out in the church tower chime
Burning clues into this heart of mine
Thinking so hard on her soft eyes and the memories
Offer signs that it’s over…it’s over

-Jeff Buckley

 

Guitar and Video Games

How is it you feel?
I remember you at the top of my room
All these things we wondered how to hide
See how it works when
All the day long in a bottle of mud
All these fears we wondered how to hide with our love

How is it you feel when you run?
Ships won’t come in in a bottle of mud
All this time looking for love and
You want to find peace
But you find me

Mondrary fields where we run
See how it works with a bottle of rum
All this time hiding from death
And we want to be strong
But we find the true story
A tale
Writing itself as we sail
A story
A tale
Writing itself as we wail
Oh no

Never again my dear
Should we come dancing here
We’ll play guitar and video games

What if we refuse to follow the rules of fashion?
Tell me something you’d tell a fool
Ways to refuse to follow the rules of fashion

How is it you feel then?
Remember you in the top of my room
All these things remade me and caused
To be something grand

Never again shall we
Come dancing in the sea
We’ll play guitar for a new
We’ll play guitar and video games

Could You Be Loved?

Could you be loved and be loved?
Could you be loved and be loved?

Don’t let them fool you
Or even try to school you
We’ve got a mind of our own,
So go to hell if what you’re thinking is not right
Love would never leave us alone,
In the darkness there must come out the light.

Could you be loved and be loved?
Could you be loved and be loved?

(The road of life is rocky and you may stumble too,
So while you point your fingers someone else is judging you)
(Could you be, could you be, could you be loved?
Could you be, could you be loved?
Could you be, could you be, could you be loved?
Could you be, could you be loved?)

Don’t let them change you
Or even rearrange you
We’ve got a life to live.
They say: only, only,
Only the fittest of the fittest shall survive,
Stay alive

Could you be loved and be loved?
Could you be loved and be loved?

(You ain’t gonna miss your water until your well runs dry;
No matter how you treat him, the man will never be satisfied.)
(Could you be, could you be, could you be loved?
Could you be, could you be loved?)
(Could you be, could you be, could you be loved?)
Could you be, could you be loved?)

Say something.

–Bob Marley

 

 

Train In Vain

You say you stand by your man
Tell me something I don’t understand
You said you love me and that’s a fact
Then you left me, said you felt trapped

Well some things you can explain away
But my heartache’s in me till this day

Did you stand by me?
No, not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way

All the times
When we were close
I’ll remember these things the most
I see all my dreams come tumbling down
I won’t be happy without you around

So all alone I keep the wolves at bay
There is only one thing that I can say

Did you stand by me?
No, not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way

You must explain why this must be
Did you lie when you spoke to me

Did you stand by me?
No, not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way

Now I got a job
But it don’t pay
I need new clothes
I need somewhere to stay
But without all these things I can do
But without your love I won’t make it through

But you don’t understand my point of view
I suppose there’s nothing I can do

Did you stand by me?
No, not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way

You must explain why this must be
Did you lie when you spoke to me?

Did you stand by me?
No, not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way

–The Clash
