Love's Recovery

Original and similar lyrics
During the time of which I speak it was hard to turn the other cheek To the blows of insecurity Feeding the cancer of my intellect the blood of the love soon neglected Lay dying in the strength of its impurity And all the friends I thought were so together They've all gone and left each other in search of fairer weather I sit here in this storm and drink a toast To the slim chance of love's recovery There I am in younger days stargazing painting picture-perfect maps Of how my life and love would be Not counting the unmarked paths of misdirection my compass, faith in love's perfection I missed ten million miles of road I should have seen And all our friends we thought were so together Left each other one by one on the road to fairer weather And we sit here in our storm and drink a toast To the slim chance of love's recovery Rain-soaked and boys choked Like silent screaming in a dream I searched for an absolute distinction Not content to bow and bend To the winds of culture that swoop like vultures Eating us away...eating us away...eating us away to our extinction Oh how I wish I were a trinity so that if I lost a part of me I'd still have two of the same to live But nobody gets a lifetime rehearsal as specks of dust, we're universal So let this love survive and be the greatest gift that we could give Tell all the friends who think they're so together That these are ghost and mirages all these thoughts of fairer weather Though it's storming now, I feel safe within the arms Of love's discovery

Is That All There Is?

JANN ARDEN "Uncover Me 2"
I remember when I was a girl Our house caught on fire And I'll never forget the look on my father's face As he gathered me in his arms And raced to the burning building out on the pavement And i stood there shivering And watched the whole world go up in flames And when it was all over I said to myself Is that all there is to a fire? Is that all there is? Is that all there is? If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing Let's break out the booze and have a ball If that's all there is And when i was twelve years old My daddy took me to the circus The greatest show on earth And there were clowns And elephants Dancing bears, And a beautiful lady in pink tights flew high above our heads And as i sat there watching I had the feeling that something was missing I don't know what But when it was all over I said to myself Is that all there is to the circus Is that all there is? If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing Let's break out the booze and have a ball If that's all there is And then I fell in love With the most wonderful boy in the world We'd take long walks down by the river Or just sit for hours gazing into each other's eyes We were so very much in love And then one day He went away And I'd thought I'd die But i didn't And when i didn't I said to myself Is that all there is to love Is that all there is? If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep I know what you must be saying to yourselves If that's the way she feels about it Then why doesn't she just end it all Oh no. not me. I'm not ready for the final disappointment 'Cause i know just as well as I'm standing here talking to you That when that final moment comes And I'm breathing my last breath I know what I'll be saying to myself Is that all there is? Is that all there is? If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing Let's break out the booze and have a ball If that's all there is

Is That All There Is

P.J. Harvey "Dance Hall At Louse Point"
I remember when I was a girl Our house caught on fire And I'll never forget the look on my father's face As he gathered me in his arms and raced to the burning building out on the pavement. And I stood there shivering and watched the whole world go up in flames. And when it was all over I said to myself 'Is that all there is to a fire?, Is that all there is?' Is that all there is? If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing Let's break out the booze and have a ball If that's all there is And when I was twelve years old, my Daddy took me to the circus 'The greatest show on earth'. And there were clowns and elephants, dancing bears, and a beautiful lady in pink tights flew high above our heads. And as I sat there watching, I had the feeling that something was missing I don't know what but when it was all over I said to myself 'Is that all there is to the circus?' Is that all there is?' If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing Let's break out the booze and have a ball If that's all there is And then I fell in love with the most wonderful boy in the world. We'd take long walks down by the river or just sit for hours gazing into each other's eyes. We were so very much in love and then one day he went away and I'd thought I'd die, but I didn't. And when I didn't, I said to myself 'Is that all there is to love?' Is that all there is? If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep¡­ I know what you must be saying to yourselves if that's the way she feels about it, Then why doesn't she just end it all. O no, not me, I'm not ready for the final disappointment Cause I know just as well as I'm standing here talking to you, That when that final moment comes and I'm breathing my last breath, I know what I'll be saying to myself 'Is that all there is?' Is that all there is? If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing Let's break out the booze and have a ball If that's all there is

Theme From Summer

All Star United
I wrote this song today Pool side at Flamingo Bay Underneath the coconut trees This sun-baked symphony A little ditty with a melody Drifted to me on a summer breeze If strange, change in the weather makes your mood sway Remember every word I say Chorus: Love, baby, love This is my theme from summer Winter, spring and fall Love, baby, love In July, August or December Anytime at all It's never simple dear To be in summer cheer Underneath your Gortex and furs If your colors fade in the wash Of the sleet and snow in Osh Kosh Just keep it cool in all temperatures If strange, change in the weather Makes your mood swing Repeat this chorus that I sing Touche, you've hit me with a powerful tune You shake the pettiness of my croon When skies are grey Try this cliche

Lovesick

GANG STARR "Step In The Arena"
Verse 1 Strangely enough I've been struck Affected by her smile And yo, her style is worthwhile And knowing that I'm deep like a river I feel I should give her Things that those others can't deliver Contrary to what I had wished it seems that I've been dissed But hey, I don't want to miss this wonderful opportunity My boys they try schoolin' me But see I know what I want Someone who'll be there for the whole nine This honey is so fine But now she's hung up the line Upset because I told her I'm busy She made like a grizzly And started chewin' my head off Screamin' that I spend more time with friends And also, she said I ruined her weekend I said I know the stuff we had planned but please understand Right now I'm loungin' with my man I guess I didn't realize I'd hurt her She said I had the nerve to just neglect her like that Then she started bringing up past things and she kept asking how come our love isn't lasting I said, Hey baby, please calm down cuz I'm still around and it's for you that my heart pounds Can I call you later on? You say I treat you wrong? But why you flippin' on me? She said something else and then click Left me alone on the phone with the tone And now I'm lovesick Verse 2 Relationships can grip with the pain Arguments in the crib, in the streets, on the train I'm crazy fed but then still When she ain't there I feel sad, I feel ill Frowning cuz I'm down in the dumps The other night I took her out so she could shake her rump But after we were there for a few Some girls that I knew Stepped up and asked me to come to a party they were havin' at their house I looked at my girl, and yo, she started walkin' out I said Hey love, just wait for a second And won't you just check it? It's all a part of makin' records Those were just some friends in the business No need to get angry So listen up while I kick this And what about the things we discussed about havin' trust? What's all this attitude stuff? Now hon, you know that I wouldn't play you But time after time, you let your jealousy sway you Hey don't you turn your back like that Come on, this is wack You're heated up like a thermostat Then she stepped off in a whirlwind and I don't know when or if I'm gonna see her again I coulda sworn she was the right one to pick But now...man I'm just lovesick
