Magdalene

Original and similar lyrics
(Scholz-Foulke-Sikes) I, I know I'm a dreamer It's easy to see I want to be a believer And fly right through the air Now I'm wide awake I want you to take me there The things that you told me I don't know if I was dreaming And dreams aren't enough Life is so lonely I need someone to believe in Are you in love? Can't you see that's everything to me That's enough Magdalene, let me hear it said so I am sure Answer me - can't you see that's all I'm waitin' for? Here I am on my knees once more Magdalene Time must lead you somewhere I don't want to wait I know you can take me there The way that you hold me I don't know if I was dreaming And dreams aren't enough Life is so lonely I need someone to believe in Someone to love Can't you see that's everything to me That's enough Magdalene let me hear it said so I am sure Answer me - can't you see that's all I'm waiting for? Here I am on my knees Oh, I'm begging you please Magdalene Magdalene... Magdalene... Magdalene...

Goodbye Alice In Wonderland

JEWEL "Goodbye Alice In Wonderland"
[Verse 1:] It's four in the afternoon I'm on a flight leaving L.A. Trying to think about my life My youth scattered along the highway Hotel rooms and headlights I've made a living with a song Guitar as my companion Wanting desperately to belong Fame is filled with spoiled children We grow fat on fantasy I guess that's why I'm leaving I crave reality [Chorus 1:] So goodbye Alice in Wonderland Goodbye yellow brick road There is a difference between dreaming and pretending I did not find paradise It was only a reflection of my lonely mind wanting What's been missing in my life [Verse 2:] I'm embarassed to say the rest is a rock and roll cliche I hit the bottom when I reached the top But I never knew it was you who was breaking my heart I thought you had to love me But you did not Yes a heart can hallucinate If it's completely starved for love It can even turn monsters into Angels from above You forged my love just like a weapon And you turned it against me like a knife You broke my last heartstring You opened up my eyes [Chorus 2:] So goodbye Alice in Wonderland Goodbye yellow brick road There is a difference between dreaming and pretending That was not love in your eyes It was only a reflection of my lonely mind searching what was missing in my life [Bridge:] Growing up is not an absence of dreaming It's being able to understand the difference between the ones you can hold And the ones that you've been sold And Dreaming is a good thing cause it brings new things to life But pretending is an ending that perpetuates a lie Forgetting what you are Seeing for what you've been told [Verse 3:] Ohh truth is stranger than fiction This is my chance to get it right And life is much better without all of those pretty lies [Chorus 3:] Ohh So Goodbye Alice in Wonderland And you can keep your yellow brick road There is a difference between dreaming and pretending These are not tears in my eyes They are only a reflection of my lonely mind finding They are only a reflection of my lonely mind finding I found what's missing in my life

The Presence Of Other

HOWARD JONES "Revolution Of The Heart"
This time, it's different, be sure, I mean it Can't go on trading on ideas that I just don't own A life with some meaning, a life with some sense I want to blame you Give you my power I keep it all on the inside Keep it locked in the dark I keep it all on the inside Keep it locked in the dark People telling me it's not my responsibility But it is my problem and it's my life, my life I must believe the solutions To the problems are in my hands Feel the presence of other Love the resistance it presents Different from and outside of me Pushing me to find what is self Slow down, just talk, sit down, right here Must be an answer to the question of birth and death A world with some meaning A world with some peace Inside, it's turbulent, outside reflects it Hear you knockin' on the inside Hear me breathe answer please Hear you knockin' on the inside Hear you breathe answer me People telling me what they think that I should be Only thing that I can be is myself, myself I must believe in my choices To create value out of everything Feel the presence of other Love the resistance it presents Different from and outside of me Pushing me to find what is self Feel the presence of other Love the resistance it offers Different from and outside of me Pushing me to find what is self This time, it's different I'm sure I mean it Slow down, just listen It's my life, it's my life

You Owe Me Nothing In Return

ALANIS MORISSETTE "Under Rug Swept"
I'll give you careless amounts of out right Acceptance if you want it. I'll give you Encouragement to choose the path you want if you need it. You can speak of anger and doubts, Your fears and freak-outs and I'll hold it. You can share your so-called Shamefilled accounts of times in your life and I won't judge it. And there are no strings attached, You owe me nothing for giving the love that I give. You owe me nothing for caring the way that I have. I give you thanks for receiving, it's my privilege, And you owe me nothing in return. You can ask for space for yourself And only yourself and I'll grant it. You can ask for freedom as was Or time to revel and you'll have it. You can ask to live by yourself Or love someone else and I'll support it. You can ask for anything you want Anything at all and I'll understand it. I bet you're wondering when The next payback you'll eventually drop. I bet you're wondering when my conditions or policies will force you to cough up. I bet you're wondering how far you now have danced moved back into dead. This is the only kind of love As I understand it that there really is. You can express your deepest of thruths Even if it means I'll lose you and I'll hear it. You can fall into the abyss On the way to your bliss And I'll empathize with. You can't say that you'll have to skip town To chase your passion and I'll hear it. You can leave and hit rock bottom have a mid-life chrisis and I'll hold it.

Question

MOODY BLUES "A Question Of Balance"
Why do we never get an answer When we're knocking at the door With a thousand million questions About hate and death and war. It's where we stop and look around us There is nothing that we need. In a world of persecution That is burning in it's greed. Why do we never get an answer When we're knocking at the door Because the truth is hard to swallow That's what the wall of love is for. It's not the way that you say it When you do those things to me. It's more the way that you mean it When you tell me what will be. And when you stop and think about it You won't believe it's true. That all the love you've been giving Has all been meant for you. I'm looking for someone to change my life. I'm looking for a miracle in my life. And if you could see what it's done to me To lose the the love I knew Could safely lead me through. Between the silence of the mountains And the crashing of the sea There lies a land I once lived in And she's waiting there for me. But in the grey of the morning My mind becomes confused Between the dead and the sleeping And the road that I must choose. I'm looking for someone to change my life. I'm looking for a miracle in my life. And if you could see what it's done to me To lose the the love I knew Could safely lead me to The land that I once knew. To learn as we grow old The secrets of our souls. It's not the way that you say it When you do those things to me. It's more the way you really mean it When you tell me what will be. Why do we never get an answer When we're knocking at the door With a thousand million questions About hate and death and war. It's where we stop and look around us There is nothing that we need. In a world of persecution That is burning in it's greed. Why do we never get an answer When we're knocking at the door

Seductive Barry

PULP "This Is Hardcore"
Here in the night love takes control. Making me high making me whole. *I don't know. Oh no, no, no. No I don't know. No, no, no. No I don't know. When I close my eyes I can see you lowering yourself to my level. I don't know where you got those clothes, you can take them off if it makes you feel better. Don't stop it now. Now is so right. Now as the day slips away & we slide into night. [*Repeat] I open my eyes & you're there, even better in the flesh it would seem. I'm so ready and willing & able it's untrue, to act out this love scene & make my dreams come true. & how many others have touched themselves whilst looking at pictures of you How many others could handle it if all their dreams came true I don't expect you to answer straight away, maybe you're just having an off day but I need to believe in you. Yes I do. Yes I do. Oh I want you here in my heart. Here in my head. Live all your dreams for tonight here in your bed. [*Repeat] So roll the soundtrack and dim the lights 'cos I'm not going home tonight. This love scene has begun. There's nothing left for us to do but get it on. Lets make this the greatest love scene from a play no-one's thought up yet. I know you're feeling the same as me but what you gonna do about it Now here's an exclusive: I've wanted you for years. I only needed the balls to admit it. When the unbelievable object meets the unstoppable force there's nothing you can do about it. No. I will light your cigarette with a star that has fallen from the sky. Breathe in, breathe out, I love the way you move. Don't let anyone tell you any different tonight. You are beauty, you are class, you showed it all but you still kept a little piece back just for me. A little piece back just for me. Just for me. Oh I don't know how you do it but I love the way you do it, when you're doing it to me. & if this is a dream then I'm going to sleep for the rest of my life. For the rest of my life For the rest of my life For the rest of my life
