JOE MCELDERRY lyrics - Classic

I Dreamed A Dream

Original and similar lyrics
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

Trace Your Steps

Goldfish Edna's
You never thought about the consequences it would bring If you decided to give up yourself to everything Situations that promise to ruin your mind And happiness you won't find You're digging' your own hole And life is spinning out of control Refuse to take the blame for situations you create What's the root of your problem? It's time to investigate Polluted thoughts clog up the flow of your mind thinking straight Leading to your own fate When you look in the mirror who do you see? Yourself or just a reflection of who you used to be? Take some time before it's tomorrow And your days are filled with sorrow Your best days are to be had yet You can't live a life of regret Things are never set in stone You can always trace your steps back home

Raining

Daedalus "Leading Far From A Mistake"
Heavy rain, my Lord, you bring to the city, disclosing hidden thoughts; baptismal water steeping my body, rejecting my soul. Whispers of wind change to cries beyond my ear, scattered shadows evoke a whirl of remembrances; sweet entities, emotional shots made of broken destinies. And I ask you, my Lord, why my love lies in hate and my dreams in death; why the holy breath of life crossed my mud backwards; a book read from the end, that's what I am. Still raining, cold tears of lucid pity sliding down on my back, shivers of a life waiting for the rain to rise to the sky; illusions of a loving mind forced to live searching for a dream just to blow it out! And I pray you, my Lord, to be my last dream in this rainy day, the one where life and joy will marry my sorrow, a unifying dimension in which my soul will finally rest.

COMMON
Same story, same target, different time Cyclical reaction from the prisoners of the bilnd Trying to fight time, it's a battle of the mind Waiting for redemption, surviving in a bind Same story, same target, different time Cyclical reaction from the prisoners of the blind Trying to fight time, it's a battle of the mind Waiting for redemption, surviving in a bind [Black Thought] Yo, talk about paying the ultimate price Hurricane been incarcerated all of his life Started out at like twelve Trapped in a belly of hell Grew into a man inside of a cell Yo, anger just swell up At a early age that develop Hot head and now it ain't shit y'all could tell him They said he's on a road to become a felon But instead he swung blows that'll spilt your melon He did his thing and was the king of the ring, undisputed Started making noise but they tried to mute it They put him through it For him to make the system look stupid, [yo] They rather look you in the face and shoot it And leave your spot looted [or what] Or leave your whole life blank futured and caught When you scream at it and do it With sweat leaking from the outline of your soluid Don't understand the point that you at Or how the hell you came to it? Flashback to images of that night, out in Patterson They pulled him over heading home from a gathering And when they told him the charge it kind of baffled him Murder in the first for the champ, we on that again?

[Common] You gotta fight for what you believe in Nobody knows the troubles seen This flick left me wondering 'What can become of kings and young kids?' Summer dream deferred, incident occured, freedom blurred A freedom that would only be retrieved again in words, later on The cops, y'all know what they be on A nigga's life is like a field that they play upon, away and gone from Natural lifer, a soul he had to fight, Learn it himself, sleep days, stay up half the night Amongst dead man walking, he got afterlife exercising, Developing his knack to write Never leaving his cell, in this world he trapped himself What he loved on the outside world, detached himself You know the cards Blacks get dealt by the system He drew a picture of freedom with many dimensions This picture proved to be bigger than Black and White A young soul named Lesra brought him back to life It's amazing to a man what a book could do And how certain books seem to look for you This is the story of a champion's fall and rise The story left me wiping my eyes Peace Ru Chorus Hurricane Accuse a Hurricane Ain't change a damned shame It's life for Hurricane, Hurricane [Black Thought] *overtop of sung chorus* Yo, yo, forever, imagine your locked down forever Could y'all stand the weather?

Yo, can't explain the pain with words, know'm saying? Just imagine if your life was like a hurricane [Verse 4] The clouds clashed and the heaven's gave birth to star God placed it in a man on the day he was born Convicted minutes after, a true natural disaster Framed for manslaughter, the Hurricane Carter rising From out the south water, like torrential rains In the ring no opponent escaped unscathed You can't believe the world we live in's injust All I see is more proof, there's no place for us They had my man Carter locked in a cage, like an animal Drive him to the point where the mind work mechanical Or works by remote control It was done to all of us, they tapped directly into our soul Either it's sing-sing, or it's bars around your mind There's no where to run, no where to hide In a six-by-six a guilty man cries For repentance and lost is what innocence is Same story, same target, different time Cyclical reaction from the prisoners of the bilnd Trying to fight time, it's a battle of the mind Waiting for redemption, surviving in a bind Same story, same target, different time Cyclical reaction from the prisoners of the blind Trying to fight time, it's a battle of the mind Waiting for redemption, surviving in a bind Chorus Hurricane Accuse a Hurricane Ain't change a damned shame It's life for Hurricane, Hurricane [Black Thought] *overtop of sung chorus* Your locked down forever Could you stand the weather?

The Musical Box

GENESIS "Nursery Cryme"
While Henry Hamilton-Smythe minor (8) was playing croquet with Cynthia Jane De Blaise-William (9), sweet-smiling Cynthia raised her mallet high and gracefully removed Henry's head. Two weeks later, in Henry's nursery, she discovered his treasured musical box. Eagerly she opened it and as Old King Cole began to play, a small spirit- figure appeared. Henry had returned - but not for long, for as he stood in the room his body began ageing rapidly, leaving a child's mind inside. A lifetime's desires surged through him. Unfortunately the attempt to persuade Cynthia Jane to fulfill his romantic desire led his nurse to the nursery to investigate the noise. Instinctively Nanny hurled the musical box at the bearded child, destroying both. Play me Old King Cole That I may join with you, All your hearts now seem so far from me It hardly seems to matter now. And the nurse will tell you lies Of a kingdom beyond the skies. But I am lost within this half-world, It hardly seems to matter now. Play me my song. Here it comes again. Play me my song. Here it comes again. Just a little bit, Just a little bit more time, Time left to live out my life. Play me my song. Here it comes again. Play me my song. Here it comes again. Old King Cole was a merry old soul, And a merry old soul was he. So he called for his pipe, And he called for his bowl, And he called for his fiddlers three. But the clock, tick-tock, On the mantlepiece - And I want, and I feel, and I know, and I touch, Her warmth... She's a lady, she's got time, Brush back your hair, and let me get to know your face. She's a lady, she is mine. Brush back your hair, and let me get to know your flesh. I've been waiting here for so long And all this time has passed me by It doesn't seem to matter now You stand there with your fixed expression Casting doubt on all I have to say. Why don't you touch me, touch me, Why don't you touch me, touch me, Touch me now, now, now, now, now...

The Song

Barclay James Harvest
The day begins Riding a rainbow Bow in her hand To drive away The night again, Nothing has changed. And all around People are waking King of them all Has gone to rest He passed the test, Leaving the stage. Time goes sailing on, Slowly the crowd will appear, And into their ears, The song they'd love to sing forever. Tomorrows come, Tonight lives on for years. The time has come Follow the spotlight Lighting the scene Another world The flags unfurled Into the sky. And in the air Music is playing Ingots of gold Fall to the ground Creating sound Into the night. Time goes sailing on Into the light disappears, And still in the ears, The song they'd love to sing forever. Tomorrows come, Tonight lives on for years. Under a setting sun Spiriting shadows away, Wonderous people run Watch as the band start to play The song they'd love to sing forever.
