Bon Jovi – Livin’ On A Prayer

Posted in Bon Jovi with tags on September 26, 2009 by kJouL

Once upon a time

Not so long ago

Tommy used to work on the docks

Union´s been on strike

He´s down on his luck…it´s tough, so tough

Gina works the diner all day

Working for her man, she brings home her pay

For love – for love

She says we´ve got to hold on to what we´ve got

it doesn´t make a difference

If we make it or not

We´ve got each other and that´s a lot

For love – we´ll give it a shot

Whooaaaaaa! We´re half way there

Whooooaaaa! Livin’ on a prayer

Take my hand- we´ll make it – I swear

Whooaaaa! Livin’ on a prayer

Tommy got his six string in hock

Now he´s holding in what he used

To make it talk – so tough, it´s tough

Gina dreams of running away

When she cries in the night

Tommy whispers: Baby it´s okay, someday

We´ve got to hold on to what we´ve got

it doesn´t make a difference

If we make it or not

We´ve got each other and that´s a lot

For love – we´ll give it a shot

Whooaaaaaa! We´re half way there

Whooooaaaa! Livin’ on a prayer

Take my hand- we´ll make it – I swear

Whooaaaa! Livin’ on a prayer

Livin´on a prayer

Solo

Oooooooh

We´ve got to hold on ready or not

You live for the fight when that´s all that you´ve got

Whooaaaaaa! We´re half way there

Whooooaaaa! Livin’ on a prayer

Take my hand and we´ll make it – I swear

Whooaaaa! Livin’ on a prayer

Whooaaaaaa! We´re half way there

Whooooaaaa! Livin’ on a prayer

Take my hand and we´ll make it – I swear

Whooaaaa! Livin’ on a prayer

Whooaaaaaa! We´re half way there

Whooooaaaa! Livin’ on a prayer

Take my hand and we´ll make it – I swear

Whooaaaa! Livin’ on a prayer

Muse – Unintended

Posted in Muse with tags on September 14, 2009 by kJouL

you could be my unintended choice

to live my life extended

you could be the one i’ll always love

you could be the one who listens to my deepest inquisitions

you could be the one i’ll always love

i’ll be there as soon as i can

but i’m busy

mending broken

pieces of the life i had before

first there was the one who challenged

all my dreams and all my balance

she could never be as good as you

you could be my unintended choice

to live my life extended

you should be the one i’ll always love

i’ll be there as soon as i can

but i’m busy mending broken

pieces of the life i had before

(repeat)

before you

Edwin McCain – I Could Not Ask For More

Posted in Edwin McCain with tags on September 4, 2009 by kJouL

Lying here with you,

Listening to the rain,

Smiling just to see the smile upon your face,

These are the moments I thank God that I’m alive,

These are the moments I’ll remember all my life,

I found all I’ve waited for,

And I could not ask for more.

Looking in your eyes,

Seeing all I need,

Everything you are is everything to me,

These are the moments I know Heaven must exist,

These are the moments I know all I need is this,

I’ve found all I’ve waited for,

And I could not ask for more.

Chorus:

I could not ask for more than this time together,

I could not ask for more than this time with you,

Every prayer has been answered,

Every dream I’ve had’s come true,

Yeah, right here in this moment,

Is right where I’m meant to be,

Here with you, here with me. . . Yeah.

These are the moments, I thank God that I’m alive,

These are the moments, I’ll remember all my life,

I’ve got all I’ve waited for,

And I could not ask for more. . .

Chorus:

I could not ask for more than this time together,

I could not ask for more than this time with you,

Every prayer has been answered,

Every dream I’ve had’s come true,

And right here in this moment,

Is right where I’m meant to be,

Here with you, here with me. . .

I could not ask for more than this love you give me,

Cause it’s all I’ve waited for . . .

And I could not ask for more,

I could not ask for more.

Edwin McCain – I’ll Be

Posted in Edwin McCain with tags on September 4, 2009 by kJouL

The strands in your eyes that color them wonderful

Stop me and steal my breath

And emeralds from mountains thrust towards the sky

Never revealing their depth

And tell me that we belong together

Dress it up with the trappings of love

I’ll be captivated, I’ll hang from your lips

Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above

And I’ll be your cryin’ shoulder

I’ll be love’s suicide

I’ll be better when I’m older

I’ll be the greatest fan of your life

And rain falls angry on the tin roof

As we lie awake in my bed

You’re my survival, you’re my living proof

My love is alive and not dead

So tell me that we belong together

Dress it up with the trappings of love

I’ll be captivated, I’ll hang from your lips

Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above

And I’ll be your cryin’ shoulder

I’ll be love’s suicide

I’ll be better when I’m older

I’ll be the greatest fan of your life

And I’ve dropped out, I’ve burned up

I fought my way back from the dead

I’ve tuned in, I’ve turned on

Remembered the things that you said

And I’ll be your your cryin’ shoulder

I’ll be love’s suicide

I’ll be better when I’m older

I’ll be the greatest fan of your-

I’ll be your cryin’ shoulder

I’ll be love’s suicide

I’ll be better when I’m older

I’ll be the greatest fan of your life

The greatest fan of your life

U2 – Staring at The Sun

Posted in U2 with tags on September 4, 2009 by kJouL

Summer stretching on the grass

Summer dresses pass

In the shade of a willow tree

Creeps a crawling over me

Over me and over you

Stuck together with God’s glue

It’s going to get stickier too

It’s been a long hot summer

Let’s get under cover

Don’t try too hard to think

Don’t think at all

I’m not the only one

Staring at the sun

Afraid of what you’d find

If you took a look inside

I’m not just deaf and dumb

Staring at the sun

Not the only one

Who’s happy to go blind

There’s an insect in your ear

If you scratch it won’t disappear

It’s going to itch and burn and sting

You want to see what the scratching brings

Waves that leave me out of reach

Breaking on your back like a beach

Will we ever live in peace

‘Cause those that can’t do

Often have to

And those that can’t do

Often have to preach

To the ones

Staring at the sun

Afraid of what you’ll find

If you took a look inside

Not just deaf and dumb

Staring at the sun

I’m not the only one

Who’d rather go blind

Intransigence is all around

Military still in town

Armour plated suits and ties

Daddy just won’t say goodbye

Referee won’t blow the whistle

God is good but will He listen

I’m nearly great

But there’s something missing

I left it in the duty free

But you never really belonged to me

You’re not the only one

Staring at the sun

Afraid of what you’d find

If you stepped back inside

I’m not sucking on my thumb

I’m staring at the sun

Not the only one

Who’s happy to go blind?

U2 – Stuck In A Moment

Posted in U2 with tags on September 4, 2009 by kJouL

I’m not afraid of anything in this world

There’s nothing you can throw at me that I haven’t already heard

I’m just trying to find a decent melody

A song that I can sing in my own company

I never thought you were a fool

But darling, look at you

You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight

These tears are going nowhere, baby

You’ve got to get yourself together

You’ve got stuck in a moment and now you can’t get out of it

Don’t say that later will be better now you’re stuck in a moment

And you can’t get out of it

I will not forsake, the colours that you bring

But the nights you filled with fireworks

They left you with nothing

I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me

I still listen through your ears, and through your eyes I can see

And you are such a fool

To worry like you do

I know it’s tough, and you can never get enough

Of what you don’t really need now… my oh my

You’ve got to get yourself together

You’ve got stuck in a moment and now you can’t get out of it

Oh love look at you now

You’ve got yourself stuck in a moment and now you can’t get out of it

I was unconscious, half asleep

The water is warm till you discover how deep…

I wasn’t jumping… for me it was a fall

It’s a long way down to nothing at all

You’ve got to get yourself together

You’ve got stuck in a moment and now you can’t get out of it

Don’t say that later will be better now

You’re stuck in a moment and you can’t get out of it

And if the night runs over

And if the day won’t last

And if our way should falter

Along the stony pass

And if the night runs over

And if the day won’t last

And if your way should falter

Along the stony pass

It’s just a moment

This time will pass

U2 – Beautiful Day

Posted in U2 with tags on September 4, 2009 by kJouL

The heart is a bloom, shoots up through the stony ground

There’s no room, no space to rent in this town

You’re out of luck and the reason that you had to care,

The traffic is stuck and you’re not moving anywhere.

You thought you’d found a friend to take you out of this place

Someone you could lend a hand in return for grace

It’s a beautiful day, the sky falls

Abd you feel like it’s a beautiful day

Don’t let it get away

You’re on the road but you’ve got no destination

You’re in the mud, in the maze of her imagination

You love this town even if that doesn’t ring true

You’ve been all over and it’s been all over you

It’s a beautiful day

Don’t let it get away

It’s a beautiful day

Don’t let it get away

Touch me, take me to that other place

Teach me, I know I’m not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue

See China right in front of you

See the canyons broken by cloud

See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out

See the Bedouin fires at night

See the oil fields at first light

And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth

After the flood all the colors came out

It was a beautiful day

Beautiful day

Don’t let it get away

Touch me, take me to that other place

Reach me, I know I’m not a hopeless case

What you don’t have you don’t need it now

What you don’t know you can feel it somehow

What you don’t have you don’t need it now

You don’t need it now, you don’t need it now

Beautiful day
