BRUCE DICKINSON lyrics

Octavia

Original and similar lyrics
I'm vacuum-breathing and open-mouthed, as the red shift fills my eyes Minister my promises as her shadow cuts the day away I remembered you, as you walked into that room Dislocated, jagged pieces, are sliding into this broken mind Swimming back against the river but I'm rising with the tide Where we came from, we're all going back there soon How many times have we met this way? How many lives have we lived before? How many faces and how many names? Shadows come, but shadows are gone Shadows come, but shadows are gone How many times have we met this way? How many lives have we lived before? How many faces and how many names? Shadows come, but shadows are gone Shadows come, but shadows are gone

One Last Try

KALAN PORTER "Wake Up Living"
It's so obvious the blind could see And I know it 'cause it blinded me Only now I understand it all Baby turn the lights out oh 'Cause I don't need them on To sow me something that I deep down know If you could see through these eyes That have lived a hundred lives That have cried a thousand times They just won't dry They just won't dry Until you give us one last try It's the little things that hurt sometimes And they all add up and try and change your mind But when the voices get too loud Baby turn the lights out oh 'Cause we don't need them on To show us something that we deep down know If you could see through these eyes That have lived a hundred lives That have cried a thousand times They just won't dry They just won't dry Until you give us one last try How will you know? How good it could be? If you could only wait and see If you let go How will you know? Maybe it could work out, or not It's gotta be worth just one last shot If you could see through these eyes That have lived a hundred lives That have cried a thousand times They just wont dry They just wont dry Until you give us one last try

One Voice

PENNYWISE "Straight Ahead"
A million faces are blurred in today A million lives that are so far away I'm alone and I want you to know I want to scream but there's nowhere to go A million voices are making the cry a million lives that are waiting to die A million families are wasting away split by decision it must go away Someone soon is goona die wasting away in a world full of lies Song unseen another day somehow tomorrow somehow today If you don't listen you'll never learn watch yourself or you might get burned Isn't it time to tell yourself I've got to get out I've got to go We've got to be one voice How many lives will be taken today How many times will we just look away How many voices cry to be heard screaming alone but no one hears a word How many faces alone in the crowd waiting for answers facing the clouds How much longer do we have to wait times running out and there's no time to waste

It's Not Peculiar

Hüsker Dü "Warehouse: Songs Stories"
Is it sensible, life is what it seems When you're living in a dream Could you care enough? While pausing on a thought Can you think of what you've got? (Only you know what matters in your life) When it's pouring out, you're pondering inside And all the times you shouted, everybody cried You've got to learn to compromise To live inside the others' lives It's not peculiar, there's nothing to devise at all On a stormy night, you're sitting on the floor Is it nothing anymore? Waking up to fix it, making up the fight Will it be one more tonight? (Some things we said will never wash away) Taking all of this into another day Recollections of the words we used to say The times you looked into my eyes Whispered vowing not to lie Hear the telephone, it's raining in the fall And you hope I never call Sending messages that never get received But we're trying, I believe (Sometimes we wonder what our lives are for) Taking all of this is taking all of me Sometimes I wish I had the energy When it falls apart like fragments of our lives Give a little bit, and give a lot to die

The Evening Shadows

H
I have an animal inside me He sleeps during the day But he kicks and ticks even when he's sleeping Never completely goes away And as the evening shadows stretch themselves The animal begins to wake Comes out to see what is for breakfast He takes whatever he can take He isn't murderous or wicked Sometimes he's like a little child But he's voracious and insatiable He's self-destructive and he's wild I sometimes think about the animal Sometimes I'm proud, Sometimes ashamed I know he drove me from my hometown Made me feel like I'm not the same I know he stops me being boring I think so anyway And I don't know if I control him But I must try to keep him chained But he doesn't think about the future He lives completely in the NOW Doo bee doo bee dooo... I sometimes see the other animals Controlling other peoples lives Doing things they thought they'd never do And not really knowing why So we must all beg for forgiveness Say sorry and explain Until the evening shadows stretch themselves And here we go again...

The Times You've Come

JACKSON BROWNE "For Everyman"
In the time we've known That we each are a part of one another We've lost as much as we have won And as our lives have grown We have found that it only brings us pain That hangs on to the things that we have done Still I've loved the times you've come When you went away Taking all that I'd built my false road on I dropped my life and couldn't find the pieces Now you come and go And it's hard but I feel my strength returning We'll see how far this new road reaches We'll see a little more each time we come Now everybody's gonna tell you it's not worth it Everybody's gotta show you their own thing You might try to find your way up around it But the need for love will still remain Now we're lying here So safe in the ruins of our pleasures Laughter marks the place where we have fallen And our lives are near So it wouldn't occur to us to wonder Is this the past or the future that is calling You know I've loved these times you've come.
