The Flame

Original and similar lyrics
I could feel the breeze blowing chance Blowing through my doorway Warm and restless just as you walked by Inside of smoky halls a circle drawn And voices call To raise some magic wind in my world Strange coincidence each time you look my way This sinking feeling scares me Know my weakness call it dejavu Never puy my trust in fate suprises do arrive so late Why should I be suprised by you Straight to the heart straight for this precious shining How do you dare step into my flame One from the heart, one for this precious shining How can you steel my flame Sometimes cards are drawn and the tables turn The waiting game is over Take this dealers hand and steal away the dawn Don't give me any chance to wander back from this innocence Don't give me any chances at all

You Shouldn't Call The Doctor

Dr. Feelgood "Malpractice"
(Wilko Johnson) Girls if your heart is feeling sore Call the doctor and he'll fix it for sure I'll be over right away but you might find you have to pay For a private consultation and a guaranteed cure When you're dying of a dreadful disease You don't worry 'bout the medical fees And it's too late to change your mind the doctors pulling down the blind And your temperature is rising to a hundred degrees I'll cuddle up beside you for a start And listen to the beating of your heart And then he'll take you gently by the hand And ask you when the trouble first began And then he'll look down deep into your eyes And if your temperature continues to rise There's only one way to make it stop I'll have to prescribe the strongest medicine I've got If this doesn't cure you it'll kill But I know it's going to give you a thrill And now I've come across don't complain about the cost You shouldn't call the doctor if you can't afford the bills I'll cuddle up beside you for a start And listen to the beating of your heart And then he'll take you gently by the hand And ask you when the trouble first began And then he'll look down deep into your eyes And if your temperature continues to rise There's only one way to make it stop I'll have to prescribe the strongest medicine I've got If this doesn't cure you it'll kill But I know it's going to give you a thrill And now I've come across don't complain about the cost You shouldn't call the doctor if you can't afford the bills

Don't Let The Teardrops Rust Your Shining...

EVERYTHING BUT THE GIRL "Baby, The Stars Shine Bright"
Sorrow is a lonely road Where the rain like your tears Beats heavy on the roof above your head Tomorrow is a lovers' town That's been beaten down And the hands of winter holds the life we've led Instead of drowning in despair For I find small comfort in a bottle When we're apart Don't let the teardrops rust your shining heart I used to drive all night for you While the children were asleep And as the dawn broke on your room Back into my house I'd creep Where my husband slept alone Of course he must have known But we always hide the truth For fear of losing what we own So don't forget the words that we choose And constantly misuse They were written down every time we were apart Don't let your teardrops rust your shining heart

Calamity John

Dar Williams "All My Heroes Are Dead"
Come lovers, come loners, remember yourselves As lusty tempestuous fools When your dream was to conquer an ocean From your small secretarial pools When you stood at the gulf of unknowing When you saw the great tundra of time And you cried for the winds to come blowing And you called a monsoon from the tides of the moon 'Cause the roads were all dusty and dry Come lame dancing lonely tonight When what should appear in the distance Blown hither and yon it's Calamity John And hes coming to sweep you away---Aye I Aye Ayy He'll tear through the homefront, he'll lift you up laughing He'll blow every signpost away As the weather report says high drama With a five percent chance that he'll stay Now the floor starts to rock and the roof floats And your friends say he's bad for your health And they've warmed you about him on talk shows So you told him to pack, hit the road, don't come back And he says hey Don't flatter yourself ....and you say..... I am closing my door to the storm I am saving myself from its freedom I have put the chain on, oh calamity john I don't want you to dance me away---Aye I Aye Ayy So its seven months later you've bolted your hair back You're almost immune to the moon And at parties you stay in the kitchen Common sense with a big wooden spoon All at once you can feel the storm coming As you burst out into the old refrain To the sound of America drumming Call it pain, call it art, call it open your heart Let it go let it fly, let it rain(Oh yeah) He smiles and the clouds turn to black With the wind through the flowers come blowing The warning bell's on, What's your name, Oh it's John , That's such an unusual name---Aye I Aye Ayy

Down On The Run

Hollies "Hollies [1974]"
(Hicks / Horton-Jennings) It's late, and the week-end's near You could say I can't wait Till the gang gets here Eight, and the Angels are roaring Shining those dips Straight line for the strip If I back out Fake a black out At my night on the chicken run Need some moonshine Doctor goodtime Keeping my nerves in line Down on the run Cy, the pack leader's wild Even preaches to ride In a Brando style Fast, two shadows are closing Passing like knives Short cut on our lives If I back out Fake a black out At my night on the chicken run Needs some moonshine Doctor goodtime Keeping my nerves in line Down on the run When the boys are called together To hand me out a feather, I'm through Sweating in my leather so I guess its now or never Something I've gotta do, just gotta do What I gotta do It's late, and the week-end's near You could say I can't wait Till the gang gets here Eight, and the Angels are roaring Shining those dips Straight line for the strip Shining those dips Straight line for the strip Passing like knives Short cut on our lives Shining those dips Straight line for the strip

44. Caliber Love Letter

ALEXISONFIRE "Alexisonfire"
Sifting through weathered photo albums (Does it make a difference?) Looking for gloriously aged polaroids (This is the way it is) (You think it really would make a difference? Would I hang on the beach in perfect black and hide?) Of places you've never been. (I broke through this hollow shell that once held me so tight I couldn't breathe) A place to accept you don't exist (Come with me, jump off the edge) "Smile for the camera sweetheart. I really wanna immortalize the moment." Just remember the first step in forgetting Is destroying all the evidence. With friends like you, Who needs subtext? Sub. Text. Sub. Text. This is a .44 caliber love letter straight from my heart. With a gun, make your shot. Let's hope for better shit. (Straight {straight!} from {from!} my {my!} heart {heart!}) That reason for separation. (Straight {straight!} from {from!} my {my!} heart {heart!}) Straight from... my... heart. Christened by your bullet. I'm losing patience. Well I guess... It's my own fault. Don't remember. Don't remember. Don't... remember. Don't!
