Let It Be Me

Original and similar lyrics
Sticks and stones battle zones A single light bulb on a single thread for the black Sirens wail history fails Rose-colored glass begins to age and crack While the politicians shadowbox the power ring And an endless split decision never solve anything From a neighbor's distant land I heard the strain of the common man Let it be me (this is not a fighting song) Let it be me (not a wrong for a wrong) Let it be me If the world is night Shine my life like a light Well the world seems spent and the president Has no good idea who the masses are Well I'm one of them and I'm among friends We're trying to see beyond the fences in our own backyards I've seen the kingdoms blow like ashes in the winds of change But the power of truth is the fuel for the flame So the darker the ages get There's a stronger beacon yet Let it be me (this is not a fighting song) Let it be me (not a wrong for a wrong) Let it be me If the world is night Shine my life like a light In the kind word you speak In the turn of the cheek When your vision stays clear In the face of your fear Then you see turning out a light switch is their only power When we stand like spotlights in a mighty tower All for one and one for all Then we sing the common call Let it be me (this is not a fighting song) Let it be me (not a wrong for a wrong) Let it be me If the world is night Shine my life like a light

Blinded By The Light

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN "Disc: 1"
Madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomatIn the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hatWith a boulder on my shoulder feelin' kinda older I tripped the merry-go-round With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing the calliope crashed to the ground Some all-hot half-shot was headin' for the hot spot snappin' his fingersclappin' his hands And some fleshpot mascot was tied into a lover's knot with a whatnot in her hand And now young Scott with a slingshot finally found a tender spot and throws his lover in the sand And some bloodshot forget-menot whispers daddy's within earshot save the buckshot turn up the band And she was blinded by the light. Cut loose like a deuce Another runner in the night. Blinded by the lightShe got down but she never got tight, but she'll make it alright Some brimstone baritone anticyclone rolling stone preacher from the eastHe says: Dethrone the dictaphone, hit it in its funny bone, that's where they expect it least And some new-mown chaperone was standin' in the corner all alone watchin' the young girls dance And some fresh-sown moonstone was messin' with his frozen zone to remind him of the feeling of romance Yeah he was blinded by the light. Cut loose like a deuce Another runner in the night. Blinded by the light He got down but she never got tight, but he's gonna make it tonight Some silicone sister with her manager's mister told me I got what it takes She said I'll turn you on sonny to something strong if you play that song with the funky break And go-cart Mozart was checkin' out the weather chart to see if it was safe to go outside And little Early-Pearly came in by her curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride Oh, some hazard from Harvard was skunked on beer playin' backyard bombardier Yes and Scotland Yard was trying hard, they sent a dude with a calling card, he said, do what you like, but don't do it here Well I jumped up, spit in the air, fell on the ground, asked wich was the wayback home He said take a right at the light, keep going straight until right, and then boy you're on your own And now in Zanzibar a shootin' star was ridin' in a side car hummin' a lunar tune Yes, and the avatar said blow the bar but first remove the cookie jar, we're gonna teach those boys to laugh too soon And some kidnapped handicap was complaining that he caught the clap from some mouse trap he bought last night Well I unsnapped his skull cap and between his ears I saw a gap but he'd figured he'd be all right He was just blinded by the light. Cut loose like a deuce Another runner in the night. Blinded by the light Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun Oh but mama that's where the fun is

Wish We Could Be Free

Angela Via "Angela Via"
Wish We Could Be Free I wish we could I wish we could I wish we I wish we You know it's so unfair This life sometimes When it never lets me fulfill The deepest desire I have inside If we could disappear And fly away to a paradise A place where only you and I To unleash this fantasy Then I could love you every night Hold you until the morning light No one to say what's wrong or right The way it has to be Wish I could love you every night Hold you until the morning light No one to say what's wrong or right Oh how I wish, I wish we could be free I'm living through this heart of mine But I would let you come inside Cuz I was told it would be a crime For us to share this love But love is not a selfish thing Why if I take it must I bleed? Or is that how it's meant to be If only we could live inside my dreams Then I could love you every night Hold you until the morning light No one to say what's wrong or right The way it has to be Wish I could love you every night Hold you until the morning light No one to say what's wrong or right Oh how I wish, I wish we could be free Every night I wanna be with you Doing all the things we wanna do (Oh baby) A place for only you and me To unleash fantasies Oh how I wish I could be free with you To do all the things I've dreamed to do baby I would give you all the love you could need Oh how I wish we could be free Then I could love you every night Hold you until the morning light (My love) No one to say what's wrong or right (what's wrong or right) The way it has to be Wish I could love you every night (love you every night) Hold you until the morning light (the morning light) No one to say what's wrong or right (what's wrong or right) Oh how I wish, I wish we could be free (The way it has to be)

Eden

Elend
Horror atque terror Quid faciebas, malefice Die irae, dies ille Sovet saeculum in favillam. Lost in the garden, with the blood on my hands, Captive of the luminous trees, Of wisdom and of life the Holy Keepers, My face unmasked, monstrous, bloodred, Is shining through the emerald light. Numquam diruetur templum adamantinum Nos, qui olim vicimus, vincemus te iternum. I eat the deadly flowers of murderous lust, And begin to chant my freedom. Musical death, of Heaven the dirge. The Universe I master, I make mine the burning delights of life, The joy of power unbounded, Eternal Fury of celestial destruction... Lucifer, damnatus es, pro ea, quae faciebas. Persequemur te, iterum perdemus te, Inferna dulcius perfugium Quam vorago cruciatuum, In quam te praecipitabimus. Non est dominus noster, nihil potest. God is dead God is dead God is dead As I tore the shreds of this morbid dream, I abandoned my heart, And on the silent ocean of my soul, The waters were so calm one could hear the dying of light.

Masterpiece (Mona Lisa)

JAZMINE SULLIVAN "Reality Show"
My eyes ain't used to these rays I'm feeling exposed, but I hide no more I can't hide As the sun shines on all of my glory My flaws don't look so bad at all What was I so afraid of? Every part of me is a vision of a portrait Of Mona, of Mona Lisa Every part of me is beautiful And I finally see I'm a work of art A masterpiece Who is this I've tried so long fight? Filling my heads with lies that I'm not good enough Then I heard something in my ear Tell I'm perfect, now that I know the truth Time to show and prove Every part of me is a vision of a portrait Of Mona, of Mona Lisa Every part of me is beautiful And I finally see I'm a work of art A masterpiece And now I see the pretty colors on my canvas I'm a work of art, a Mona Lisa I'll share my picture with the world Not afraid to let it show anymore I can light the night, shine so bright (Let my colors paint the sky) I can light the night, shine so bright (There is beauty in my eyes) I can light the night, shine so bright (And I can see it now, I believe it now, I can feel it now) I can light the night, shine so bright (Want the world to see, I'm a work of art. I'm a masterpiece) I can light the night, shine so bright (I am beautiful) Every part of me is a vision of a portrait Of Mona, of Mona Lisa Every part of me is beautiful And I finally see I'm a work of art A masterpiece
