AL STEWART lyrics - Last Days Of The Century

Bad Reputation

Original and similar lyrics
You've got a bad reputation All over the street There's some indication You've been indiscreet Oh I know you can turn on the charm When you feel so inclined Whatever I do I can't get you out of my mind It's a sad situation I'm coming apart A clear invitation For trouble to start If I knew what it was that you did It's so hard to define But whatever it is I can't get you out of my mind Maybe I'm seeing What I want to see Trying to make you What you'll never be Perhaps it's just the simple fact You only want the things that you can't have Well I suppose somebody broke your trust Now I see you kicking up the dust I wouldn't be at all surprised If some of it got in my eyes You've got a bad reputation They're telling me so I've got a strong motivation To get up and go If I knew what it was that you did I'd just leave you behind But whatever it is I can't get you out of my mind I suppose this will come to a close It's just a matter of time But whatever I do, I can't get you out of my mind Can't get you out of my mind Oh no, whatever I do, I can't get you out of my mind

Trial By Fire

JEFFERSON AIRPLANE "Long John Silver"
Gonna move out on the highway, make this moment last Til it closes with the future, blending with the past. Rollin' on and doin' fine, what do you think I see? That boney hand comes a beckonin', saying buddy come go with me. That engine just ain't strong enough to get you round the turn Lie on your back in the middle of a field, and watch your body burn. Don't try to tell me just who I am when you don't know yourself Spend half your time running out on the street With your mind home on a shelf. Lookin' at me with your eyes full of fire Like you'd rather be seein' me dead Lying on the floor with a hole in my face And a ten gauge shotgun at my head You can leave me here, but I won't tell Things I know about you and know so well The way you smile at me, try to set me free And keep me wondering what the future will be Rollin' on, won't be long I won't leave here til' I sing this song.

Down Again

Count The Stars
We'll tap in to the local crew, we're gonna learn the things they say and what they always do Symbolize and leave then lies You leave them all your trust and all your fears Now something else to do, with just the bitch in you Telling rhymes of little girls laying up inside So turn your mind down again Until you're mine again No more useless nights I can't take the fights I'm bleeding tonight Well are we down again We're more than friends Taking me all the way I'm waiting I'm saving all the words to say, to someone like you You always knew me well, when no one knew me quite as well And figure things out nicely like you do When you were really young and careless as they seem It seems you never knew the real me basically Well my eyes go blind when I Fade into the light when I know it's right I nearly lost myself even know I know that now I cannot see without the finest things in life That make we wanna know

Changing Skin

Andrà Andersen "Changing Skin"
I close my eyes, and let the demons in To clear my mind from the things that I have seen On my knees, Father - please leave the crowd And let me out I lost my way so many times before That I forgot just what I'm living for I'm in the dark, light's so hard to find... So now I'm leaving it all behind - I'm changing skin My angry tears like raindrops in the dust I realized there's no one you can trust Shot in the back sinking in the night That's how I'm leaving it all behind - I'm changing skin

I Am Nothing

Catatonia
Tonight I'm nothing It doesn't matter where I've been Delay of reaction is The unseen movie of this life I remember one of my friends Telling me to go ahead Water on every side There's a dead spot in my eye If I listen close at night There's something coming my way Like someone called my name But I didn't care to look that way I just fixed my eyes into the crowd It would have been strange to turn around If you would tell me that I was someone Then for a second I would think Just like I would try to consider How it would feel to know I have to get on with this It's a decision for tonight Out to look for chances It is murder of my mind Once I was someone new I was chosen for a while Then with time I am changing At least that is what they say What is worth with being here I pray so often for a change

The Music Of The Night

JACKIE EVANCHO "Songs From The Silver Screen"
Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation Darkness stirs and wakes imagination Silently the senses abandon their defenses Slowly, gently night unfurls its splendor Grasp it, sense it tremulous and tender Turn your face away from the garish light of day Turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light And listen to the music of the night Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams Purge your thoughts of the life you knew before Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar And you'll live as you've never lived before Softly, deftly music shall caress you Hear it, feel it secretly possess you Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind In this darkness that you know you cannot fight The darkness of the music of the night Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before Let your soul take you where you long to be Only then can you belong to me Floating, falling sweet intoxication Touch me, trust me, savor each sensation Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in To the power of the music that I write The power of the music of the night You alone can make my song take flight Help me make the music of the night
