JEFF BUCKLEY lyrics - The Trash Can Tape

If You See Her, Say Hello

Original and similar lyrics
If you see her, say hello, she might be in Tangier She left here last early spring, is livin' there, I hear Say for me that I'm all right though things get kind of slow She might think that I've forgotten her, don't tell her it isn't so. We had a falling-out, like lovers often will And to think of how she left that night, it still brings me a chill And though our separation, it pierced me to the heart She still lives inside of me, we've never been apart. If you get close to her, kiss her once for me I always have respected her for busting out and gettin' free Oh, whatever makes her happy, I won't stand in the way Though the bitter taste still lingers on from the night I tried to make her stay. I see a lot of people as I make the rounds And I hear her name here and there as I go from town to town And I've never gotten used to it, I've just learned to turn it off Either I'm too sensitive or else I'm gettin' soft. Sundown, yellow moon, I replay the past I know every scene by heart, they all went by so fast If she's passin' back this way, I'm not that hard to find Tell her she can look me up if she's got the time.

Blame It On A Sad Song

LYNYRD SKYNYRD "Twenty"
(Gary Rossington - Johnny Van Zant - Rickey Medlocke - Hughie Thomasson) Here I sit all by myself Wonderin' how she could put our love on a shelf A crowd of people, they pass me by But all I can do is hang my head and cry Blame it on a sad song in the night I don't want anyone but you to make it right Blame it on a sad song in the night Well, it's an old familiar feelin' Girl, it's got my heart reelin' Don't want to hear a sad song in the night Anymore I know when we first started out I was your only love and you had no doubt But songs of the heart don't last forever But don't you give up on love 'cause you never say never Blame it on a sad song in the night I don't want anyone but you to make it right Blame it on a sad song in the night Well, it's an old familiar feelin' Girl, it's got my heart reelin' Don't want to hear a sad song in the night Anymore 'Cause not a day goes by that I don't think about you Oh, moment to moment, I get lost in time And many years from now when I hear that song come on the radio All those feelings will come back to haunt me My heart will let me know Blame it on a sad song in the night I don't want anyone but you to make it right Blame it on a sad song in the night Well, it's an old familiar feelin' Girl, it's got my heart reelin' Don't want to hear a sad song anymore Blame it on a sad song You can blame it on a sad song, baby Blame it on, blame it on a sad song

Dreaming While You Sleep

GENESIS "We Can't Dance"
Leaving my family behind me Not knowing what lay ahead Waving goodbye, as I left them in tears Remembering all we'd said I looked to the sky, I offered my prayers I asked Him for guidance and strength But the simple beliefs of a simple man Lay in His hands, and on my head My head I gave everything that they wanted But still they wanted more We sweat and we toiled Good men lost their lives I don't think they knew what for I sold them my heart I sold them my soul I gave everything I had But they couldn't break my spirit My dignity fought back Fightback Just fightback Can you hear me Can you see Don't you hear me Don't you see We worked in gangs for all we were worth The young boys pulling the wagons We were digging the tunnels, shifting the earth It was then that it happened No-one knew how the cracks appeared But as it fell they all disappeared Stone fell like rain Can you hear me Can you see Don't you hear me Can you breathe The smoke cleared, the dust it settled No one knew how many had died All around there were broken men They'd said it was safe, and they'd lied You could hear the cries, you could smell the fear But good fortune that day was mine And it occurred to me that the heart of a good man It seems is hard to find Can you hear me Can you see Don't you hear me Don't you see How we worked, how we worked like The devil for our pay Through the wind, through the snow And through the rain Blasting and cutting through Gods country like a knife Sweat stinging my eyes, there has to be a better life But I can hear my children's cry I can see the tears in their eyes Memories of those I've left behind Oh just still ringing in my ears Will I ever go back again Will I ever see her face again Cos I'll always remember that night As they waved goodbye to their fathers We came from the South And we came from the North With picks and with spades And a new kind of order Showing no fear of what lies up ahead They'll never see the likes of us again Driving the last spike Lifting and laying the track With blistering hands And the sun burning your back But I can hear my children's cry I can see the tears in their eyes Oh memories of those I've left behind Still ringing in my ears Cos I'll always remember that night As they waved goodbye to their fathers We followed the rail, we slept under the stars Digging in darkness and living with danger Showing no fear of what lies up ahead They'll never see the likes of us again Can you hear me Can you see Don't you hear me Don't you see

Friday Night

G. Love And Special Sauce "Philadelphonic"
I saw you at the bar I was laughing with some friends I saw you turn your head I was checking you instead I asked you if you would like to dance I really wasn't trying to get into your pants Not to say that you're not a beautiful young lady But I drive a Chevy Nova And I thought you liked Mercedes Soon enough though We were allured Bumping and grinding out on the dance floor With the system so loud The vibrations so pulsing You whispered in my ear But I couldn't hear nothing Steered me over in the corner And kissed me on the neck That's when I decided ok what the heck I put my hands on your hips And I kissed you right back You kissed me like a shark That's sniffing on a snack And then you said my boyfriend never kissed me like that I said boyfriend you didn't say he was around On this Friday Friday night When I came and rocked your town On this Friday night When the feeling's alright Rockin rock steady grooves In the middle of the night Everything is heated up And nobody's standing still With my arm around my girl And a hundred dollar bill The song was over So we headed for a drink And whatta you think She gave another guy a wink Who came over for a kiss And asked the girl who's this? She said that's G. Love you know G. and Special Sauce? Then he said I'm getting Louie kid you better get lost I asked the girl who's Louie? And she said that's my man Women Women I just can't understand Then I says I don't want to hear about girl problems And if you got a problem babydoll I can solve them But I feel you're gonna get me in trouble So c'mon let's leave this bar And go out clubbing on the double Girl's putting me in a trance All because she wants to dance And get down with the man Who brought the sound On this Friday Friday night When I came and rocked your town On this Friday night When the feeling's alright Rockin rock steady grooves In the middle of the night Everything is heated up And nobody's standing still I'm chilling with my girl And a hundred dollar bill I can just tell A girl like you's a deadend Pressing up against me Talking about I got a boyfriend Now here he comes looking for you On the dance floor While you're pusing on my knee Talkin' 'bout I love you more I'm new in town Bout I'm no stranger to this I'm not trying to exit With a hit and run fix I get my lvoing on the run And I like having fun But I don't sneak around And I don't gotta gun Now give me three steps Like the boy Lynyrd Skynrd There's more drama in this room Than a soap so I figured Maybe I'll get your digits And maybe I will call And maybe we'll slip Into the backroom down the hall Or maybe I'll get jacked up By your angry boyfriend Louie 'Cause his eyes are getting redder While his anger's busy stewing on the fire The little trick in your brought out On this Friday Friday night When I came and rocked your town On this Friday night Everything is alright Rock steady grooves In the middle of the night Everything is heated up And nobody's standing still I chillin' with my girl And a hundred dollar bill

Yentl Medley

BARBRA STREISAND "Barbra-The Concert"
Oh tell me where- Where is it written what it is I'm meant to be That I can't dare To have the chance to pick the fruit of ev'ry tree Or have my share Of ev'ry sweet-imagined possibility? [Speaking]Those are questions that women have been asking for Centuries, and incredibly enough, I think they're still asking them today! I think that's what attracted me to YENTL, and why I had felt I had to make the film...YENTL, as some of you know, is the story of a girl in Eastern Europe at the turn of the Century, when the world of study belonged only to men. But Yentl's father, recognizing her thirst for knowledge, taught her secretly. And after his death, in order to continue her studies, she had had no choice, but go out into the world disguised as a man... PAPA, CAN YOU HEAR ME? Papa, can you hear me? Papa, can you see me? Papa, can you find me in the night? Papa, are you near me? Papa, can you hear me? Papa, can you help me not be frightened? Looking at the skies, I seem to see a million eyes Which ones are yours? Where are you now that yesterday Has waved goodbye and closed its door? The night is so much darker, The wind is so much colder The world I see is so much bigger Now that I'm alone Papa, please forgive me Try to understand me Papa, don't you know I had no choice? Can you hear me praying, Anything I'm saying, Even though the night is filled with voices? I remember ev'rything you taught me Ev'ry book I've ever read Can all the words in all the books Help me to face what lies ahead? The trees are so much taller And I feel so much smaller The moon is twice as lonely And the stars are half as bright Papa, how I love you Papa, how I need you Papa, how I miss you Kissing me goodnight... [Speaking] To go on with the story, em, Yentl then meets a boy whom she falls in love with; but it turns out he's already in love with another girl, but because of circumstances I can't go into now, they're prevented from getting married. And to make a long story short, he asks Yentl, who, of course, he thinks is a boy to marry the girl, so he can still see her - not Yentl, the other girl! So, the girl and the girl get married, and if you want to see how Yentl got away with the wedding night, you'll have to rent the video! It's just a variation on the boy-meets-girl-meets-girl-story, it's very nineties! Anyway, mmm, one night he comes over to the house to study. But it's clear that the only thing he really wants to study is her...Not Yentl...Her wife, her...Get it? His eyes never leave her face... WILL SOMEONE EVER LOOK AT ME THAT WAY? See the way they gaze at her, Like slaves they follow ev'ywhere she goes. Do my eyes forget themselves And do I ever look at him And smile in such a way That what I'm feeling shows? Sometimes I have the feeling ev'rybody knows And even though it's crazy, Still I can't help wond'ring if I'll ever live to see that day When by some miracle of miracles, He'll turn around and look at me That way... A PIECE OF SKY Oh tell me where? Where is the someone who will turn and look at me? And want to share My ev'ry sweet-imagined possibility? The more I live - the more I learn. The more I learn - the more I realize The less I know. Each step I take - (Papa, I've a voice now!)Each page I turn - (Papa, I've a choice now!)Each mile I travel only means The more I have to go. What's wrong with wanting more? If you can fly - then soar! With all there is - why settle for just a piece of sky? Papa, I can hear you... Papa, I can see you... Papa, I can feel you... Papa, watch me fly! Papa, watch me fly! [Speaking]Thank you! I'm glad you liked that! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Oh, that's great! Thank you! This current administration has been beset by many problems. But, it's had many accomplishments, a fact that sometimes seems to get overlooked nowadays, you know? I guess it is easier to criticize than to praise! So, I'd like to sing this song tonight in celebration of every thing that's positive and possible in this great country of ours and around the world.
