What are yours ..

Rolling Stones : Paint it black (I never heard this song before new version is Ciara) just sharing I like new music and lyrics sounding deep even though I most never get the meaning behind them just my own interpretation




"Paint It Black"
I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors any more, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by, dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a newborn baby, it just happens every day
I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door I must have it painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black
No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes
I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors any more, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by, dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
Hmm, hmm, hmm,..
I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted black Yeah! Hmm..

Marlene, Marlene
You're the prettiest girl I've ever seen
Do you care for me at all, Marlene, I care for you
And I just don't care who knows it
And I guess that means that I love you

Marlene, Marlene
Who'd believe that you're only seventeen
I'm in trouble if your folks get mean
And if they do, then I don't care if they bust me
And I guess that means that I love you

I don't need no fantasies, just one thing I need
If you could make it here, Marlene

Dear Marlene, Marlene
When I think that it all is just a dream
I remember that your eyes are green and mine are blue
Then they will always see each other
And I guess that means that I love you

I don't need realities, just one thing I need
If you could make it here Marlene

Dear Marlene, Marlene
Marlene, I'm depending on you now
Marlene

I'm depending on you now
Marlene
I'm depending on you now
Marlene

I'm depending on you now
Marlene
I'm depending on you now
Marlene

Stars of liberty are falling
In lands far away across the sea
Burning village, as they pillage
No one cares who dies if no one sees
Once again the masses are deceived

What do we see outside of our broken windows?
Images of a warped reality as we run from ourselves
And what we see
Our homeland insecurity

Desperation to be safe from
Nebulous and shifting enemies
Apparitions of suspicion
Is it them or you or is it me?
We wont feel safe till someone bleeds

What do we see outside of our broken windows?
Images of a warped reality as we run from ourselves
And what we see
Our homeland insecurity

(Copyrited)

Wow ok I finally caught up they are really cool
thank you

Delerium - Fallen




Do you remember me,
I'm just a shadow now.
This is where I used to be,
Right here beside you.
Sometimes I call your name,
High on a summer breeze.
What I would give,
To feel the sunlight on my face.
What I would give,
To be lost in your embrace.
I've fallen from a distant star,
Came back,
compelled because I love.
I'm caught between two different worlds,
I long for one more night of love.
Do you believe in dreams,
That's how I found you.
But I can't be with you,
Till you take a leap of faith.
What I would give,
To feel the sunlight on my face.
What I would give
To be lost in your embrace
I long for one more night of love.

Delerium - Silence



Give me release
Witness me I am outside
Give me peace
Heaven holds a sense of wonder
And I wanted to believe that I'd get caught up
When the rage in me subsides
Passion Chokes the flower
Until she cries no more
Possessing all the beauty
Hungry still for more
Heaven holds a sense of wonder
And I wanted to believe that I'd get caught up
When the rage in me subsides
I can't help this longing
Comfort me, I can't hold it all in
If you won't let me
Heaven holds a sense of wonder
And I wanted to believe that I'd get caught up
When the rage in me subsides
In this white wave
I am sinking
In this silence
In this white wave
In this silence
I have seen you
In this white wave
You are silent
You are breathing
In this white wave
I believe
(I am free)

"And I still believe
In the saints,
Yeah in Jerry Lee
And in Johnny
And all the greats.

And I still believe
In the sound
That has the power
To raise a temple
And tear it down.

And I still believe
In the need
For guitars and drums
And in desperate poetry.

And I still believe
That everyone
Can find a song for
Every time they've lost
And every time they've won

So folks remember
We're not just saving lives
We're saving souls
And we're having fun."

This is a great song.

Burning House by Cam

I had a dream about a burning house
You were stuck inside I couldn't get you out
I laid beside you and pulled you close
And the two of us went up in smoke

Love isn't all that it seems
I did you wrong
Stay here with you
Till this dream is gone

I've been sleepwalking been wandering all night
Trying to take what's lost and broke and make it right
I've been sleepwalking too close to the fire
But it's the only place that I can hold you tight
In this burning house

See you at a party and you look the same
I could take you back but people don't ever change
I wish that we could go back in time
And I'd be the one you thought you'd find

Love isn't all that it seems
I did you wrong
Stay here with you
Till this dream is gone

I've been sleepwalking been wandering all night
Trying to take what's lost and broke and make it right
I've been sleepwalking too close to the fire
But it's the only place that I can hold you tight
In this burning house

Flames are getting bigger now
In this burning house
I can hold on too you somehow
In this burning house
Oh and I don't want to wake up
In this burning house

I've been sleepwalking been wandering all night
Trying to take what's lost and broke and make it right
I've been sleepwalking too close to the fire
But it's the only place that I can hold you tight
In this burning house

Whenever I here the Stone's version of "Paint it Black", I think of a family friend, Dave. To him that song reminds him of a time long ago, stepping off a plane into a steamy, foreign place that changed him forever. Dave told me once, after many beers, that song was a popular one played during down time, in a hootch, among his friends and brothers.

Paint it Black is a haunting song to a good man that spent a short time far away from home fighting for a cause he didn't understand. We played it at his wake, and think of Dave whenever I hear it.

(we don't need no)

Civil war...





"What we've got here is failure to communicate.
Some men you just can't reach...
So, you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it!
Well, he gets it!
N' I don't like it any more than you men." *

Look at your young men fighting
Look at your women crying
Look at your young men dying
The way they've always done before

Look at the hate we're breeding
Look at the fear we're feeding
Look at the lives we're leading
The way we've always done before

My hands are tied
The billions shift from side to side
And the wars go on with brainwashed pride
For the love of God and our human rights
And all these things are swept aside
By bloody hands time can't deny
And are washed away by your genocide
And history hides the lies of our civil wars

D'you wear a black armband
When they shot the man
Who said, "Peace could last forever."
And in my first memories
They shot Kennedy
An' I went numb when I learned to see
So I never fell for Vietnam
We got the wall of D.C. to remind us all
That you can't trust freedom
When it's not in your hands
When everybody's fightin'
For their promised land

And
I don't need your civil war
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
Your power hungry sellin' soldiers
In a human grocery store
Ain't that fresh
I don't need your civil war

Look at the shoes you're filling
Look at the blood we're spilling
Look at the world we're killing
The way we've always done before
Look in the doubt we've wallowed
Look at the leaders we've followed
Look at the lies we've swallowed
And I don't want to hear no more

My hands are tied
For all I've seen has changed my mind
But still the wars go on as the years go by
With no love of God or human rights
'Cause all these dreams are swept aside
By bloody hands of the hypnotized
Who carry the cross of homicide
And history bears the scars of our civil wars

"WE PRACTICE SELECTIVE ANNIHILATION OF MAYORS AND GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS
FOR EXAMPLE TO CREATE A VACUUM
THEN WE FILL THAT VACUUM
AS POPULAR WAR ADVANCES
PEACE IS CLOSER" **

I don't need your civil war
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
Your power hungry sellin' soldiers
In a human grocery store
Ain't that fresh
And I don't need your civil war
I don't need your civil war
I don't need your civil war
Your power hungry sellin' soldiers
In a human grocery store
Ain't that fresh
I don't need your civil war
I don't need one more war

I don't need one more war
Whaz so civil 'bout war anyway

Miles From Our Home
by Cowboy Junkies

No one in sight for fifty miles. The sleeping fields sigh as I glide across their spines
If I can just reach the crest of that hill, this whole day will tumble and out the night will spill

The sky is still as a spinning top. Shooting stars drop like burning words from above
If I could just connect all these dots, the truth would tumble like a cynic vexed by love

And yet the people keep saying I'm miles from my home. Miles from my home

I met you again in my sleep last night. These are days of slow boats and false starts
Hearts remain under lock and key. You will be the one to set them both free

And yet the people will tell you your miles from your home. Miles from your home

But that's where I want to be. Out there searching. Out here fumblin. Out here waiting.
For you, and you for me.

The moon hangs like a question mark. Pale as milk, bold as a promise.
When will you share the sights with us? When will we hold you in our arms?

And the people we'll tell them we're miles from our home. Miles from our home







Transcendental Blues
by Steve Earle

In the darkest hour, of the longest night.
If it was in my power, I'd step into the light.
Candles on the alter, penny in your shoe.
Walk upon the water. Ttranscendental blues.

Happy ever after, 'til the day you die.
Careful what you ask for, you don't know 'til you try.
Hands are in your pockets, starin' at your shoes.
Wishin' you could stop them transcendental blues.

If I had it my way, everything would change.
Out here on this highway the rules are still the same.
Back roads never carry you where you want 'em to.
Leave you standin' there with them ol' transcendental blues.

Agnostic front: My war

A beam of light cuts through the dark
My anger enraged to hate
I see what life's all about
But I just can't relate

Reality will bring you to your knees
As life goes on
War within my reach
My war

An empty gaze at early dawn
Before the morning light
Instinct has become mistrust
No values, wrong or right

Reality will bring you to your knees
As life goes on
War within my reach
My war

Now I pray and so I say
That you're my enemy
I had no gain to let it be
This is your destiny

A path of life that left it's mark
Like footprints in the snow
You can run, but you can't hide
You've got nowhere to go

Reality will bring you to your knees
As life goes on
War within my reach
My war, my war



The sounds: the best of me

Oh my love we gotta save ourselves
If we wanna safe the world
Don't give in to your hate
When you know you can change
It's hitting home when you feel so strange
I wanna say those words
But it's not that easy
I smile but it doesn't make things right
And it's hard when it's hurting all the time
But I can leave this thing behind

You gotta trust me and hold on
We gotta slow down baby
'cuz were still young
But we are getting older
Are hearts are still warm
But they are getting colder
And this life is getting the best of me
And I'm down on my knees oh please
But baby hold on

Keep your head up high
Reach for me I can pretend when it's a lie
Talk to me when you're low
Come bother me I promise I won't tell a soul
And we can turn this corner no it's not that easy
But were fools not to give it a try
And it's hard when it's hurting all the time
But I can leave this thing behind

You gotta trust me and hold on
We gotta slow down baby
'cuz were still young
But we are getting older
Are hearts are still warm
But they are getting colder
And this life is getting the best of me
And I'm down on my knees oh please
But baby hold on

When I see the stars above me
Shining their light down on my face
I feel you
Now I know what I'm missing

Hold on we gotta slow down baby
'cuz were still young
But we are getting older
Are hearts are still warm
But they are getting colder
And this life is getting the best of me
And gets me down on my knees
Hey please ... baby hold on

Don Henley: Heart of the Matter

I got the call today, I didn't wanna hear
But I knew that it would come
An old true friend of ours was talkin' on the phone
She said you found someone
And I thought of all the bad luck,
And the struggles we went through
And how I lost me and you lost you
What are these voices outside love's open door
Make us throw off our contentment
And beg for something more?

I'm learning to live without you now
But I miss you sometimes
The more I know, the less I understand
All the things I thought I knew, I'm learning again
I've been tryin' to get down to the Heart of the Matter
But my will gets weak
And my thoughts seem to scatter
But I think it's about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don't love me anymore

These times are so uncertain
There's a yearning undefined
...People filled with rage
We all need a little tenderness
How can love survive in such a graceless age
The trust and self-assurance that can lead to happiness
They're the very things we kill, I guess
Pride and competition cannot fill these empty arms
And the work I put between us,
Doesn't keep me warm

I'm learning to live without you now
But I miss you, Baby
The more I know, the less I understand
All the things I thought I figured out, I have to learn again
I've been tryin' to get down to the Heart of the Matter
But everything changes
And my friends seem to scatter
But I think it's about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don't love me anymore

There are people in your life who've come and gone
They let you down and hurt your pride
Better put it all behind you; life goes on
You keep carryin' that anger, it'll eat you inside

I've been tryin' to get down to the Heart of the Matter
But my will gets weak
And my thoughts seem to scatter
But I think it's about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don't love me anymore

I've been tryin' to get down to the Heart of the Matter
Because the flesh will get weak
And the ashes will scatter
So I'm thinkin' about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don't love me anymore

New Adele song




I've made up my mind,
Don't need to think it over,
If I'm wrong I am right,
Don't need to look no further,
This ain't lust, I know this is love but,
If I tell the world, I'll never say enough,
Cause it was not said to you,
And that's exactly what I need to do,
If I'm in love with you,
I give up, Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere, Or would it be a waste?
Even If I knew my place should I leave it there?
I'd build myself up, And fly around in circles,
Waiting as my heart drops, And my back begins to tingle
Forgive me I forgive you Finally could this be it or
Should I give up,Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere


Good morning/evening to everyone for now

I thought of another. These are "older" songs, some of you may not know.

Time for a Cool Change: Little River Band

If there's one thing
In my life that's missing
It's the time that I spend alone
Sailing on the cool
And bright clear water

Lots of those friendly people
They're showing me ways to go
And I never want to
Lose their inspiration

Time for a cool change
I know that it's time for a cool change
Now that my life is so prearranged
I know that it's time for a cool change

Well, I was born in the sign of water
And it's there that I feel my best
The albatross and the whales
They are my brothers

It's kind of a special feeling
When you're out on the sea alone
Staring at the full moon like a lover

Time for a cool change
I know that it's time for a cool change
Now that my life is so prearranged
I know that it's time for a cool change

I've never been romantic
And sometimes, I don't care
I know it may sound selfish
But let me breathe the air

Yeah, yeah
Let me breathe the air

If there's one thing
In my life that's missing
It's the time that I spend alone
Sailing on the cool
And bright clear water

It's kind of a special feeling
Out on the sea alone
Staring at the full moon
Like a lover

Time for a cool change
I know that it's time for a cool change
Now that my life is so prearranged
I know that it's time for a cool change

(Time for a cool change)
It's time, it's time
It's time, it's time
For a cool, cool change
(Time for a cool change)
I know it's time for a cool change
(Time for a cool change)
Now that my life is so pre-arranged
Well, I know, I know
I know, I know
(Time for a cool change)
It's time for a cool change
Yes, it is, yes, it is yes, it is
You know it's time for a cool change

I really don't want to darken the mood in here, but the following track's lyrical imagery and emotional honesty impressed me when I first heard it a over a decade ago, and still does:



It's the story of a man who has long ago lost a lover, told to his friend and flatmate: He feels as if he is a ghost, trapped forever in the memories of the past mistakes that cost him his partner and the prospect that she has found happiness with a new lover. He cannot escape this torment of his own making, he feels as if it has been centuries of pain and as he relates his experience to his friend, it's almost as if he killed her when he drove her away, and her leaving killed him too..


I'm sittin' at a coffee table, unable to see straight
Watchin' parallel lines unwind and undulate
Behind the rain-streaked windowpane, the scene's bleak
Another train leavin' home,
conceding defeat with a low moan

Hangin' in a sky, made of stone
Everybody's leavin' home, I called my man Jerome
To come meet me in the twilight zone
Leave your mobile phone at home and come alone

I bought him coffee and a snack, settled back, started speakin'
He was tweakin' with the peak of his cap
While I'm seekin' to discover what it takes to stay sober
Not cover my mistakes,
try to maybe make sense of the evidence

It's over, she's gone for good
Why should I lie?
Singin' a killer's lullaby 
Identified by the dying ring of her goodbye
The last thing you hear before your life disappears

Now it just gets worse, like my stomach'll burst,
feel like I've been cursed.
With seven centuries of bitter memories
Inadequacies, the previous he's and she's

I'm movin' round this old house for the last time
The scene of my past crimes, been here for lifetimes
Hearin' the chimes of the old clock that used to mock:
"You got eternity for takin' stock"

This place is like a padlock
You look shocked.
Trust me, nothing ever moves but the dust,
There's just us and I'm here to torment and tease
And that's how it was for centuries
Me and my memories, till you bought the keys
Took a couple of Saturdays
and moved in, runnin' from tragedies and boozing
Several hundred years since I came here
You were there, same hair, same quizzical stare

I couldn't get near,
And the sheer frustration was more than I could bear
I was really cursed, thought I'd been through the worst part
That was just the first part, just the start
Every night I'd be sitting with dread, pricking my heart
In case the man she'd been chasin' gets to first base
And I just can't escape, I'm in bad shape
You making love to someone else is more than I can take
And so I make all the movement I can to no avail
Scream and yell, sinkin' deeper into my personal hell

I'm getting heated, I'm sorry, have another coffee
I needed to release my sparrow chest from just a piece of this pressure;
Unless an escape route is found,
I'm going down underground
Into lifetimes of pain, it's absurd
The heaviest chain is contained is the sound of one word
So I'm referred back to hell, huh
Just as well, I hate needles, and get twinges at the thought of syringes

Jay, I'm going insane with shame
I dream I watch her makin' love over and over again
With what I call a farmer's swain
Unintelligent, pea-brained retard who's dick is always hard
Oh God, of course I'm jealous fellas,
All the sex, flexing his pecs
Jesus, what's he going make her do next?

I'm mad vex, the way she gently scratches his chest
...used to do that to me back in 1253...
Pity me, while you lie with your lover
I stare and suffer in despair while you ruffle his hair
Unaware of who else is there

I move quick, I want to try my trick one last time
You know it's possible to vaguely define my outline
When dust move in the sunshine
So I'm tryina change, vibrate myself to near-human pitch
Which reminds me how I used to come unstitched
And switch 'round the house in a blind rage
It took years and an ocean of tears to find the key to this cage
Advance another stage into a new age, huh
it's difficult to gauge

But I know that I'll see you again, on that you may depend
I just don't know how or when

Sleep on, my lost love, I'm gone.

Jerome took me home under steel skies
Knowing I'm prone to dramatize but unknown for telling lies
And what I verbalize he can see behind my eyes
The why oh why's that identify killer lullabies,
and he surmised...

No surprise, couldn't hear that
Closed my eyes as he steered that old black BM home again

Not knowing how and not knowing when.

"Word On A Wing"

In this age of grand illusion
You walked into my life
out of my dreams
I don't need another change
Still you forced away
into my scheme of things

You say we're growing,
growing heart and soul
In this age of grand illusion
You walked into my life
out of my dreams
Sweet name, you're born once again for me
Sweet name, you're born once again for me
Oh sweet name, I call you again
You're born once again for me
Just because I believe don't mean I don't think as well
Don't have to question everything
in heaven or hell

[CHORUS]
Lord, I kneel and offer you
my word on a wing
And I'm trying hard to fit
among your scheme of things

It's safer than a strange land
But I still care for myself
And I don't stand in my own light
Lord, lord, my prayer flies
like a word on a wing

My prayer flies
like a word on a wing
Does my prayer fit in
with your scheme of things?

In this age of grand illusion
You walked into my life
out of my dreams
Sweet name, you're born once again for me
Just as long as I can see, I'll never stop this vision flowing
I look twice and you're still flowing
Just as long as I can walk
I'll walk beside you, I'm alive in you
Sweet name, you're born once again for me
And I'm ready to shape the scheme of things

Ooh, ready to shape
the scheme of things [5 times]

I've enjoyed your Avatar every time I've seen it. Now it unintentionally reflects your haunting post. It will remain with me throughout the day, and longer, I am sure. So sorry for your loss. Dave had a good friend.
