Love - John Lennon

Love is real, real is love
Love is feeling, feeling love
Love is wanting to be loved

Love is touch, touch is love
Love is reaching, reaching love
Love is asking to be loved

Love is you
You and me
Love is knowing
We can be

Love is free, free is love
Love is living, living love
Love is needing to be loved


...in the beginning...
used to be dance music...

This is a story bout a girl that I knew
she didn't like my songs
and that made me feel blue
she said "a big band is far better than you"

She don't rock'n'roll, she don't like it
she don't do the stroll, well she don't do it right
well, everythings wrong and my patience was gone
when I woke one morning
and remembered this song
O-oh-oh, kinda catchy, I hope
that she would talk to me now
and even allow me to hold her hand
and forget that old band.

I strolled around to her pad
her light was off and that's bad
her sister said that my girl was gone
"But come inside, boy, and play, play, play me a song!"
I said "Yeah!............ Here I go"
She's kinda cute; don't you know,
That after a while of seeing her smile
I knew we could make it, make it in style

So now I've got all I need
She and I are in love, we've agreed
she likes this song and my others too
so now you see my world is...
because of this tune
What a boon this tune
I tell you soon
We'll be lying in bed, happily wed,
and I won't think of that girl
or what she said...

Syd Barrett

Two Oasis tunes:

Now that you're mine
We'll find a way
Of chasing the sun
Let me be the one
That shines with you
In the morning, we don't know what to do -Slide Away

There are many things
That I would like to say to you
But I dont know how -Wonderwall

Change is the only constant

Words are flying out like
endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass
They slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
are drifting thorough my open mind
Possessing and caressing me

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light which
dance before me like a million eyes
That call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a
restless wind inside a letter box
they tumble blindly as
they make their way across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of life
are ringing through my open ears
inciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which
shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Jai guru deva

Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And he's talking with Davy
Who's still in the Navy
And probably will be for life.
And the waitress is practicing politics
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
But it's better than drinking alone.

-Billy Joel, "Piano Man"

By PJ Harvey:

"Forsaken heaven,
Cursed God above,
Lain with the Devil
To bring you my love."

"I'll tell you my name, F U and C K,
Fifty foot queenie, force ten hurricane,
Biggest woman, I could have ten sons,
Ten daughters, ten queens,
Ten foot and rising,
Hey I'm a king of the world,
You oughtta hear my song,
Don't try to measure me - I'm fifty inches long!"

By Nick Cave:

"Despair and Deception, Love's ugly little twins,
Came knocking at my door - I let them in
Darling, you're the punishment for all my former sin
I let Love in, I let Love in."

I have a few so bear with me.
From Ani DiFranco:
"Fuck you, and your untouchable face.
And fuck you for exsisting in the first place.
And who am I, that I should be vying for your touch?
I said Who am I.
I bet you can't even tell me that much."

Or maybe...
"I guess that push has come to this, so I guess this must be shove.
But before you throw those stones at me, tell me
What is your house made of?
And if you think you know what I'm doing worng,
you're gonna have to get in line.
But for the purposes of this song,
let's just say I'm doing fine."

"I am not a pretty girl.
that is not what I do.
I ain't no damsel in distress,
And I don't need to be rescued.
So put me down punk.
Wouldn't you prefer a maiden fair?
Isn't there a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere?"

Also I love the Cure. So from Pictures of you:
"If only I'd thought of the right words,
I could've held on to your heart.
If only I'd thought of the right words,
I wouldn'tb e breaking apart all my pictures of you."

From a punk stand point I love the lines:
"If the kids are united they will never be divided." Thanks to the Business.
"I know that my life makes you nervous,
I just tell you I can't luve in service." From the Clash.

Also crunkest lyric award goes to the Beastie Boys:

"I'll steal your girl like I stole your bike."

Keepin it krunk...

There's only room for one and here she comes, here she comes...

We may rise and fall
But in the end, we meet our fate together.


Yeah, go ahead and flame me if you wish, but how true is this?
