Angie

Angie, Angie, when will those clouds all disappear?
Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You can’t say we’re satisfied
But Angie, Angie, you can’t say we never tried
Angie, you’re beautiful, but ain’t it time we said good-bye?
Angie, I still love you, remember all those nights we cried?
All the dreams we held so close seemed to all go up in smoke
Let me whisper in your ear:
Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here?
Oh, Angie, don’t you weep, all your kisses still taste sweet
I hate that sadness in your eyes
But Angie, Angie, ain’t it time we said good-bye?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You can’t say we’re satisfied
But Angie, I still love you, baby
Ev’rywhere I look I see your eyes
There ain’t a woman that comes close to you
Come on Baby, dry your eyes
But Angie, Angie, ain’t it good to be alive?
Angie, Angie, they can’t say we never tried

 

Every Shining Time You Arrive

Change in every little desire
We were counting on forces we could not control
Oh and all those things you realized
Were nothing more than a memory displaced through
So the story’s told beyond our grasp
We were climbing forever an infinite task
Shoulders straining with the endless toil
We’re nothing more than a feather moving in the wind
I want to change everything
I want to change everything
I want to blame everything on
Oh and all these seeds will grow anyway
Even though the outcome we cannot say
So you’ll always have your time to shine
Even in the winter of your darkest hour
Want to change everything
I want to change everything
I want to blame everything on

In the depths of my gloom
I crawl out for you
From the peaks of my joy
I crawl back into
Tearing me down every time you smile
Every shining time you arrive

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

 

“I Can’t Tell You Why”

Look at us baby, up all night
Tearing our love apart
Aren’t we the same two people who live
through years in the dark?
Every time I try to walk away
Something makes me turn around and stay
And I can’t tell you why
When we get crazy,
it just ain’t right,
(try to keep your head, little girl)
Girl, I get lonely, too
You don’t have to worry
Just hold on tight
(don’t get caught in your little world)
‘Cause I love you
Nothing’s wrong as far as I can see
We make it harder than it has to be
and I can’t tell you why
no, baby, I can’t tell you why
I can’t tell you why
No, no, baby, I can’t tell you why
I can’t tell you why
I can’t tell you why

‘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

Black Metallic

I’ve never seen you when you’re smiling
It really gets under my skin
You say it’s easy when it’s faster
I still can’t guess what you’re after

It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic

I think of you when you’re sleeping
Of all the secrets that you’re keeping
You can’t stay all day under the covers
‘Cause under there you’ll discover

It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
You’re turning black metallic

It’s the color of your skin
It’s the color of your skin

Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
You’re turning black metallic

It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic

Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic

The Girl From Ipanema

 

Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking and
When she passes, each one she passes goes “ah”

(Brazilian/Portuguese:)

Moça do corpo dourado do sol de ipanema
O seu balançado mais que um poema
a coisa mais linda que eu já vi passar..

Translation:

(When she walks, she’s like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle that
When she passes, each one she passes goes “oh”….)

But I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her, “I love you?”
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me

Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking and
When she passes, I smile but she doesn’t see

She just doesn’t see

She doesn’t see me

 

 

“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

 

 

Into The Void

Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away

Talking to myself all the way to the station
Pictures in my head of the final destination
All lined up, all the ones that aren’t allowed to stay
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away

Tried to save a place from the cuts and the scratches
Tried to overcome my complications and my catches
Nothin’ ever grows and the sun doesn’t shine all day
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away

Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away

Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away

Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away
Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping …
