ELVIS PRESLEY lyrics - Vol. 2-Touch Of Platinum

(Excerpt From) The Jaycees Speech

Original and similar lyrics
When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was the hero of the comic book. I saw movies, and I was the hero in the movie.So every dream I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times. These gentlemen over there, these are the type who care, are dedicated. You realize if it´s not possible that they might be building the kingdom, it´s not far-fetched from reality. I´d like to say that I learned very early in life that: 'Without a song the day would never end Without a song a man ain´t got a friend Without a song the road would never bend Without a song...' So I keep singing a song. Good night. Thank you.

I Dreamed A Dream

JOE MCELDERRY "Classic"
There was a time when men were kind When their voices were soft And their words inviting There was a time when love was blind And the world was a song And the song was exciting There was a time Then it all went wrong I dreamed a dream in time gone by When hope was high And life worth living I dreamed that love would never die I dreamed that God would be forgiving Then I was young and unafraid And dreams were made and used and wasted There was no ransom to be paid No song unsung, no wine untasted But the tigers come at night With their voices soft as thunder As they tear your hope apart And they turn your dream to shame He slept a summer by my side He filled my days with endless wonder He took my childhood in his stride But he was gone when autumn came And still I dream he'll come to me That we will live the years together But there are dreams that cannot be And there are storms we cannot weather I had a dream my life would be So different from this hell I'm living So different now from what it seemed Now life has killed the dream I dreamed

Rainbow Road

JOAN BAEZ "Come From The Shadows"
I was born a poor poor man All my life I had hard workin' hands But I sang a song as I carried my load Cuz I had a dream about rainbow, rainbow road Then one day my chance came along A man heard me singin' and playing these old songs He bought me fine clothes, paid the money I owed Started me on my way down rainbow, rainbow road Then one night a man wiht a knife Pushed me till I had to take his life Fast as fallin' all my friends were gone That old judge traded me a sentence for a song Just livin' with that ball 'n chain Had to wear a number 'for they'd ever call my name Like a dream I'm growing old But we still sing about rainbow, rainbow read

Blue American

PLACEBO "Black Market Music"
I wrote this novel just for you It sounds pretentious but it's true I wrote this novel just for you That's why it's vulgar That's why it's blue And I say, thank you And I say, thank you I wrote this novel just for Mom For all the mommy things she's done For all the times she showed me wrong For all the time she sang god's song And I say thank you Mom Hello Mom Thank you Mom Hi Mom I read a book about Uncle Tom Where a whitey bastard made a bomb But now Ebonics rule our song Those motherfuckers got it wrong And I ask Who is uncle Tom Who is uncle Tom Who is uncle Tom You are I read a book about the self Said I should get expensive help Go fix my head Create some wealth Put my neurosis on the shelf But I don't care for myself I don't care for myself I don't care for myself I don't care I wrote this novel just for you I'm so pretentious, yes it's true I wrote this novel just for you Just for you Just for you

Come To Life

JEFFERSON STARSHIP "Dragon Fly"
Everything, everything has come to life again I have no doubts but the ice got thin What came too soon was so hard to keep So full a harvest it was hard to reap There were times seemed just like the walls would crumble Shoot from the hip and pray for trouble Stone-cold sober and a-seeing double How that midnight band could ramble Taking mansions and leaving shambles Remember other times and places Last night's dance, the glowing faces All the lights, the shadows in the hall Seeking higher peaks from which to fall Remember, we were telling you That time would stop and nations fall Now we find the lies come true Can you tell me, tell me, tell me What are we to do? Because the good old days Those good old days are all dead and gone Good-bye and bless them all, every one What was true has passed the test Just as well forget the rest Half of what you saw was not yours to know Let it go. Everything has come to life again
