Fancy Colours

Original and similar lyrics
Going where the orange sun has never died And your swirling marble eyes shine Laughing Burning blue the light Bittersweet the drops of life Memories only fading Fancy Colours Fancy Colours All we ever did see When we're down at the sea We see things so very clear at the sea Fancy Colours Fancy Colours All we ever can do The morning covered with dew We do things so very fine in the dew Fancy Colours Fancy Colours All we ever do hear But whether we're here or there We hear things so very fine when we're there

The Valley Of Unrest

LOU REED "The Raven [1 CD Version]"
[Spoken Track] [Rowena:] Far away far away Are not all lovely things far away As far at least lies that valley as the bedridden sun in the luminous east The paralyzed mountains, the sickly river Are not all things lovely far away Are not all things lovely far away It is a valley where time is not interrupted Where its history shall not be interpreted Stories of satan's dart of angel wings Unhappy things Within the valley of unrest The sun ray dripped all red The dell was silent All the people having gone to war Leaving no interrogator to mind the willful looting the pale past knowledge The sly mysterious stars The unguarded flowers leaning The tulips overhead paler The terror stricken sky Rolling like a waterfall over the horizon's fiery wall A visage full of meaning How the unhappy shall confess As Roderick watches like a human eye While violets and lilies wave Like banners in the sky Hovering over and above a grave As dew drops on the freshly planted eternal dew Coming down in gems There's no use to pretend Though gorgeous clouds fly Roderick, like the human eye has closed forever Far away far away Roderick, whatever thy image may be Roderick, no magic shall sever the music from thee Thou hast bound many eyes in a dreamy sleep Oh tortured day The strains still arrive I hear the bells I have kept my vigilance Rain dancing in the rhythm of a shower Over what guilty spirit to not hear the beating To not hear the beating heart But only tears of perfect moan Only tears of perfect moan

San Tropez

PINK FLOYD "Meddle"
As I reach for a peach Slide a rind down behind the sofa in San Tropez Breaking a stick with a brick on the sand Riding a wave in the wake of an old Sedan Sleeping alone in the drone of the darkness Scratched by the sand that fell from our love Deep in my dreams and I still hear her calling If you're alone I'll come home Backwards and home bound The pidgeon the dove Gone with the wind and the rain on an airplane Owning a home with no silver spoon I'm drinking champaigne like a big tycoon Sooner than wait for a break in the weather I'll gather my far flung thoughts together Speeding away on a wind to a new day If your alone I'll come home And I pause for a while By a country style And listen to things they say Digging for gold in the hoe in my hand Hoping they'll take a look at the way things stand And you're leading me down to the place by the sea I hear your soft voice calling to me Making a date for later by phone if you're alone I'll come home

To Beat The Devil

WAYLON JENNINGS "Good Hearted Woman"
It was winter time in Nashville Down on Music City Row I was lookin' for a place to get Myself out of the cold To warm the frozen feelin' That was eatin' at my soul And keep the chilly winds off my guitar. My thirsty wanted whiskey And my hunger needed beans But I guess it'd been a month of payday Since I heard that eagle scream So with a stomach full of empty And a pocket full of dreams I left my pride and stepped inside a bar Actually I guess you'd call it a tavern Cigarette smoke to the ceiling Sawdust on the floor friendly shadows. I saw that there was just An old man sittin' at the bar In the mirror I could see him Checkin' me and my guitar He said come up here boy Show us what you are I said I'm dry, he bought me a beer He nodded at my guitar. Said it's a tough life ain't it I just looked at him And he said you ain't Makin' any money are you I said you been readin' my mail He just smiled and said let me see that guitar I got somethin' you oughta hear Then he laid it on me. If you waste your time a talkin' To the people who don't listen To the things that you are sayin' Who do you thinks gonna hear And if you should die explainin' How the thing they complain about Or the things they could be changing Who do you thinks gonna care. There were lots of other singers In the world turned deaf and blind Who were crucified for what they tried to show Now their voices have been scattered By the swirling winds of time And the truth remains that no one wants to know. Well, the old man was a stranger But I'd've heard his song before Back when failure had me locked out On the wrong side of the door No one stood behind me but my shadow on the floor And lonesome was more than a state of mind You see the devil haunts a hungry man And if you don't wanna join him Well, he's gotta figure out someway to beat him And I ain't sayin' I beat the devil But I drink his beer for nothin' And then I stole his song You can still hear me singin' To the people who don't listen To the things that I am sayin' Prayin' someone's gonna hear And I guess I'll die explaining How the things that they complain about Are things they could be changin' Hopin' someone's gonna care. I was born to be a singer And I'm bound to die the same But I've got to feed this hunger in my soul If I never have a nickel I won't even die in shame 'Cause I don't believe that no one wants to know...

Simple Things

USHER "Confessions"
Yeah, uhh They say money can't buy you love They say money can't buy you love They never seem to listen I'm all ears Just copped your girl a brand new Rolex But you can never find the time to spend at home Thinkin' it's gon' keep her happy When time is all she wanted all along [Chorus] It's the simple things in life we forget You hear her talkin' but don't hear what she said Why do you make something so easy so complicated Searching for what's right in front of your face But you can't see it So you think that you know what's important Steady chasin' your fame and your fortune But you don't know You're chasing a dime losin' a treasure Those dollars don't make sense to me at all Ooh, it goes Duh da duh da You give her spending money Duh da duh da But all she wanna spend is time alone (tonight) Keep givin' her The finer things but But she don't really need that If you don't stop you're You're gonna end up alone (alone) The world without love (duh duh da duh da) Why would you do it [Chorus x2] It's the simple things in life we forget You hear her talkin' but don't hear what she said Why do you make something so easy so complicated Searching for what's right in front of your face But you can't see it It's the simple things in life we forget You hear her talkin' but don't hear what she said Why do you make something so easy so complicated Searching for what's right in front of your face But you can't see it (listen) Stop tryna buy her love 'cuz you won't ever have enough There's always someone with more than you You need to pay her attention Give her what she needs Do the simple things Before you lose your girl to me Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeeah Yeeeah yeah Play on playa Yeah Your girl comin' wit' me shorty, haha I'm tellin' you man 'cuz u know [Chorus] It's the simple things in life we forget You hear her talkin' but don't hear what she said Why do you make something so easy so complicated Searching for what's right in front of your face But you can't see it You better look out I hear you talkin', i hear you talkin' (ha) But what are you saying Oh hoo oh hooo Don't be a fool You got a good thing Man are you blind Stupid or crazy? You got a good thing (uh) You got a good thing Special lady You better hold on And give her what she want Before she move on Man I tell you cars, clothes, and fancy things don't mean a damn thing If you ain't kickin it baby [Chorus] It's the simple things in life we forget You hear her talkin' but don't hear what she said Why do you make something so easy so complicated Searching for whats right in front of your face But you can't see it [Fade] Don't let this be the thing you'll always regret, no It's right there, it's right there

The World Stopped Turning

Lillian Axe
I watched you bathing in the moonlight I heard you crying in the wind Oh, every day is just another symphony Of angels singing praises in your name Look up can't you hear them calling It wasn't very long ago That you and I believed in the same things And now it seems you've put our love behind you And turned away before you understood You can run but you can't hide Chorus: Can't you see I'm falling down Thanks to things I never knew Don't you know I'm tryin' hard To take this love from you Oh, the skies are falling And the seas are drying Oh, oh, can it be? The world stopped turning on me Well, I see you still but that's just fantasy I hear you call to someone else Oh, gazing at a distant cold reflection And crystal lakes of tears I cried for you Trying to keep this hope alive Chorus Solo Chorus (Repeat)
