Strange News From Another Star

Original and similar lyrics
All I want to be Is washed out by the sea No Death Star over me Won't give me any peace All I want is light relief Put the crazies on the street Give them guns and feed them meat They'll shoot the Death Star down Dig a hole and put it down A thousand miles underground They say it's no game There's strange news from another star I'm lost, I'm lost There's strange news from another star Give me all your stuff Until I can't get up Watch the whole world freeze Counting tin cans in our sleep Submarines are diving deep I don't believe in me I don't believe in me All I've ever done is tame Will you love me all the same Will you love me though it's always the same They say it's no game There's strange news from another star I'm lost, I'm lost There's strange news from another star From another star From another star From another star

Strange Ritual

David Byrne "David Byrne"
A man sits in a field - contemplating his crops In his mind he travels all over the world I see hairstyles, strange rituals Scenes of beauty, scenes that disgust me I see, I see me I felt awe, felt disgust I felt bliss, I felt lust It's - not unusual Saw people in a remote village Proudly wearing their - digital watches Saw a young Indonesian girl Possessed by the spirit of Mutant Ninja Turtles Saw palatial estates, with crumbling decorations And human furniture I saw hairstyles, meanwhile There's a strange ritual Got a strange ritual, it's wearing me down Saw a skyscraper made out of abandoned car parts Saw a legislature of women Courted by corporate lobbyists Saw body parts made out of precious gems And rare metals, saw a man on a barstool Who hadn't moved - in 32 hours He's lost in love He's lost in love All hope is gone A French corporation that doesn't make anything An ambulance driver - wakes up in a Dairy Queen A town in which even the people who live there Can't remember it's name Yeah, I see Yeah, I see - I see what you mean Yeah, I saw hairstyles Meanwhile There's a strange ritual He's got a strange ritual He keeps to himself Mmm - got a strange ritual He keeps to himself 'Excuse me, sir, excuse me, sir You can't stand there You can't stand there' Excuse me, sir (excuse me, sir) Excuse me, sir (excuse me, sir) You can't stand there (you can't stand there) You can't stand there (you can't stand there) I saw things Things out in the fields I saw things Things out in the fields And I look at myself What do I know? (I saw things come into my room) I saw things come into my room It's not unusual I saw hairstyles Meanwhile There's a strange ritual Got a strange ritual He keeps to himself Yeah, we got a strange ritual We keep to ourselves He's lost in love He's lost in love All hope is gone All hope is gone All hands on deck All hands on deck He's lost in love He's lost in love We're lost in love We're lost in love All hope is gone All hope is gone We've got a strange ritual We keep to ourselves We've got a strange ritual We keep to ourselves Keep, keep, keep ... We've got a strange ritual We keep to ourselves We're lost in love We're lost in love We're lost in love We're lost in love ...

I Got The News

STEELY DAN "Aja"
You In your Lark You're a mark You're a screamer You know How to hustle Daddy Is a rare Millionaire I don't care Yeah you Got the muscle I got the news Yes dear How did you know Can't you see our love will grow Take it In your hand All the sirens And the band Get to bendin' my ear How Was I to know About the warm Soulful secret You been keepin' for years I got the news Slow down I'll tell you when I may never walk again Broadway Duchess Darling if you only knew Half as much as Everybody thinks you do What I hear May be true I would still be proud To know you Spanish kissin' See it glisten You came ragin' Love rampagin' I got the news Yes dear How did you know Can't you see our love will grow

A Long Way Down From Stephanie

AL STEWART "Bed-Sitter Images"
Maid, truly I see Now it must be a long way down And with love's burnt shore Must all dalliance hither Crumble and wither Oh strange, Methought it strange Thou couldst deprive me of my crown Thou cast upon me as linden bears fruit of bitter strain And I would go forsooth to the dragon's tooth If thus a chance were gained To resurrect that part of your wanton heart To whose grave my own is chained And hold, ere thou dost go Were not thy moments gilded too? And in honesty didst thou not measure for measure Countenance pleasure? Cold wert thou so cold Lest thy mind be frozen too And will not spring be reborn But might the sun for the frost here That all be not lost herein And I would rather, zounds It were hell's own hounds Whose foul breath upon my face Did portent my doom Than to bear the gloom Of a world stripped of thy grace And so in truth I know Yes it will be a long way down And if go thou must Ere we should meet accidental Prithee be gentle And though distant now Perchance the hand of time may soothe And though lost at six If I should live to be seven I might forget Stephanie

The Actor

MICHAEL LEARNS TO ROCK "Michael Learns To Rock"
He takes you out and he takes you up 'cause he can show you so much I go to bed and tomorrow again there's a lot of work to be done He gives you gold and he'll promise you the whole world will be yours I just can tell you I love you so even though my odds are low Chorus: I'm not an actor I'm not a star and I don't even have my own car But I'm hoping so much you'll stay that you will love me anyway The dirty games and the neonshows this is the world he knows Watching the stars satisfies my soul thinking of him makes me feel so cold The fancy cars and the restaurants you're just so fond of the man Sometimes I wonder if you are blind can't you see, he's got dirt on his mind Chorus: I'm not an actor I'm not a star and I don't even have my own car...

I Do

JEWEL "Perfectly Clear"
We've been doin this war dance together for sometime I know, we're treatin love like a battlefield and takin it slow, will you blink, but do you think that you on your knee propose It's dangerous I know Love is a game until it's played And if it's lost it can't ever be saved We have heaven to win and hell to lose But the difference is up to me and you So if you will, I will stop saying I won't And start saying I do But life can take a long time If you make the wrong choice Time sure seems to fly by When I hear your voice The stakes are high, I hope we find The courage to believe We will succeed 'Cause love is a game until it's played And if it's lost, it can't ever be saved We have heaven to gain and hell to lose And the difference is up to me and you So if you will, I will stop saying I won't And start saying I do Well our hearts are locked inside an iron box We're both too afraid to reveal our most tender parts, oh 'cause love is a game until it's played And if it's lost, it can't ever be saved. We have heaven to win and hell to lose And the difference is up to me and you. So if you will, I will stop saying I won't. Stop saying I can't. Is that what you said? Cause if you did, I do. I do. If you want me to. I do. If you want me to. If you want me to. If you want me to. If you want me to. I will try, I will try, I will try. I do.
