JEWEL lyrics - The Merry Goes 'Round

In My Room

Original and similar lyrics
I've often heard Though it sounds absurd There's a certain kind of person Who just to get a thrill... Walks through the desert just for something to do Flies through the skies with no parachute Some folks climb to the highest mountain Other folks bathe in Italian fountains Swim to the icy polar caps Wearing nothing but shorts and a plastic cap But I know a place where I can do all that [Chorus 1] In my room I have a stack of books Where worlds unfold if I just look In my room I can go anywhere Just close my door and I am there I can fight a ninja on my bed All I have to do is just knock him on the head There's nothing I can't do In my room Some folks drag themselves to Timbuktu Just to see a monkey wearing funny shoes Some folks float all the way to China For wonton soup in a Hong Kong diner They take lessons to be fluent in mouse Or go to Spain to learn to sew a blouse Well I can do all that without leaving my house [Chorus 2] In my room I have a stack of books Where worlds unfold if I just look In my room I can go anywhere Just close my door and I am there I can have Christmas in June Or build a rocket and walk on the moon I can do what I want to In my room In my room - my lamp becomes an Eiffle Tower In my room - my dog wears a cape and has special powers In my room - I spend hours and hours Deep in the jungle playing with all the boys and girls [Chorus 3] In my room I have a stack of books Where worlds unfold if I just look In my room I can go anywhere Just close my door and I am there I can sneak around like a crafty raccoon Give me some pots and I'll play you a tune There's nothing I can't do In my room There's nothing I can't do In my room

Sick

LAGWAGON
I've been living for years in question, some obsession Was I less to live with no answers, as a life cried wolf I'm ashamed to mention my anguish, but silence lies empty If I say it again can I kill it, will you lend me your ears Breathe in breathe out exhale, acting sweating A broken smile provides them a view, projection is nothing new Just once I would like them to feel it, suffer in my skin For a moment stand in my shoes, filled with swelling blues I keep this room, and this room keeps me, chained to my organs I am quarantined, to a place that's dark, staring at three walls The door is locked to them Maybe now that they all know it, you'll find solace As you're drowning in narcissism, or is it self-loathing Cause you fought it all in your head boy, psychosomatic They used to humor you now they pity you, and nothing's changed I keep this room, and this room keeps me, chained to my organs I am quarantined, to a place that's dark, staring at three walls The door is locked to them The door is locked behind me, if I say it again can I kill it Because they're sick of my complaining and i am sick of being sick Maybe these will cure you completely, chemicals deeply Saviors until you're dependent, don't let them go to your head I'm ashamed to mention my anguish, but silence lies empty, silence lies

Asking You

Lennon "5:30 Saturday Morning"
[Verse 1] Walk down that hall, take me to that room, shut the door And close the lights too Turn on the radio, take off that TV, sit me down And speak real softly I'll pay my attentions to things you don't say I'll turn them this way and I'll turn them the other way [Chorus] And I'm asking you is this how you want me To be anything you want me to be And I'm asking you is this how you see me Some little girl kissing your cheek [Verse 2] As the sun begins to rise, it cuts through the glass And it burns my flesh with every lash I look at myself as others see myself And I don't understand how this is myself Walk down that hall, take to that room, shut the door And close those lights too [Chorus] [Bridge] I'm walking down the stairs to leave And out of the dark her eyes catch me ? You're looking at me like you expect to see Something there that I can't be And I'm asking you to let me walk away this time 'Cause I can't be her anymore [Chorus]

You Can Have Me Anytime

BOZ SCAGGS
Here We Are, In A Room Full Of Strangers And An Open Door Here We Are, Away From All Danger But That Open Door Is Calling Out Again Acting Like A Friend Who Wants To Know If You Might Come Away I Wonder What You'll Say You Wonder Out Again. On WIngs Of The Night Once Again You'll Take Flight And I Don't Hear Your Voice Anymore Tonights Dreams Will End But I'll Stay Long After Then And You Can Have Me Anytime. Here We Are Alone In The Shadows Of Our Lonely Room Here We Are We All Hollows Those Very Lonely Rooms Like A Faithless Child Frightened Of The Wild He Runs And Hides To Keep From Being Still We Run Around Until We Lose Ourselves Again.

Room With No Number

ELVIS COSTELLO "Goodbye Cruel World"
Picture a hotel room Clothes scattered across the floor Covers pulled back from the pillow A sign hung on the door Two lovers locked up tight Through the endless days and nights Hiding something they can't show Something no-one must know Chorus There's a room without a number While the sign outside says there's no vacancy as you take your key They smile at you so understandingly She cried out in the night Woke the porter from his sleep He grinned slyly to himself As he went to fetch his keys Look what love has brought them to This terrible nightmare His or hers he could not tell As they were sleeping there Chorus And I wish he could be The man he was before he was me A girl arrived at first light And enquired if they'd been seen And why the numbers ran from twelve Missing out thirteen And they said oh my darling Put it down to superstition Try to avoid a scandal And don't arouse suspicion They re-arranged the furniture They even papered over the door There's a room without a number While the sign outside says there's no vacancy as you take your key They smile just so so you know Chorus

Posters

Dada "Puzzle"
She was seventeen going on fifty I´m not quite sure exactly what that means But her speakers screamed Sinatra and the Zombies Her hair hung red around her ripped blue jeans She said she was Jim Morrison incarnate A psychic on La Brea told her so She asked me if I ever read Lolita She took my hand and lead me to her door And she said.... Let's go to my room I'll show you my posters Let's go to my room I'll show you I'm al lover She locked the door behind me she lit a candle Then blew it out said the moon would do just fine The lizard king and T. Rex for wall paper Above her bed hung a No-Parking sign She asked me if I liked her decorator As she stripped behind a wall of raining beads I woke up with her pillow and her diary She took her bath as I began to read And she said... Let's go to my room I'll show you my posters Let's go to my room I'll show you I'm a lover
