Saturday Night In Toledo, Ohio

Original and similar lyrics
(Sparks) Saturday night in Toledo, Ohio is like being nowhere at all. All through the day how the hours rush by, you sit in the park and you watch the grass die. Ah, but after the sunset, the dusk and the twilight, when shadows of night start to fall. They roll back the sidewalk precisely at ten and people who live there are not seen again. Just two lonely truckers from Great Falls, Montana and a salesman from places unknown all huddled together in downtown, Toledo to spend their big night all alone. You ask how I know of Toledo, Ohio? Well I spent a week there one day. They've got entertainment to dazzle your eyes: go visit the bakery and watch the buns rise. Ah, but let's not forget that the folks of Toledo unselfishly gave us the scale. No springs, honest weight, that's the promise they made, so smile and be thankful next time you get weighed. And 'wive and wet wive', let this be our motto, let's let the sleeping dogs lie. And here's to the dogs of Toledo, Ohio, ladies, we bid you goodbye.

Heavens Damnation

Dissection
Striking over oceans of blood Over Kingdoms in fears Where the night bred it's cold dark the winter drew near Watch the sky the crimson tears of heaven The darkened mist of burning hate Ashes of the past, Years that fell into oblivion Visions so dim they had, memories of a time yet to come Watch the sky the crimson tears of heaven As damnation reach the hidden lands Through forests of profanity The sound of cries Brought forth by the night sky Invoked by their tongues, Yes they're truly awake now The souls that were sleeping under the tree of death And I laugh as I burn down the pearly gates of light And forever I'll be within the arms of abomination Embracement of eternal dark With the ancient souls at the sides Wastelands bathed in evil... are one with the blackened sky Watch the sky the crimson tears of heaven fade to black and welcome the night of all nights

In The Cold Winds Of Nowhere

Dissection
Striking over oceans of blood Over Kingdoms in fears Where the night bred it's cold dark the winter drew near Watch the sky the crimson tears of heaven The darkened mist of burning hate Ashes of the past, Years that fell into oblivion Visions so dim they had, memories of a time yet to come Watch the sky the crimson tears of heaven As damnation reach the hidden lands Through forests of profanity The sound of cries Brought forth by the night sky Invoked by their tongues, Yes they're truly awake now The souls that were sleeping under the tree of death And I laugh as I burn down the pearly gates of light And forever I'll be within the arms of abomination Embracement of eternal dark With the ancient souls at the sides Wastelands bathed in evil... are one with the blackened sky Watch the sky the crimson tears of heaven fade to black and welcome the night of all nights

A Poetic Retelling Of An Unfortunate Seduction

BRIGHT EYES
The language in the dimmer rooms Seems to represent the light source well How soft they speak and seem to be at peace With the movement of the music and the madness That is pulling me into this And the shades of the lamps are woven red The light, it stains and consecrates Anointing all forgotten forms That swirl and smoke and haunt this place The girls in gowns all nurse the dark Pulling it near to their swelling breasts And watch as it seeps to their hearts And beats within their virgin chests And here I know seduction breeds From wanton hearts that would seduce And grows and spreads its vine and leaves Embracing those who might have moved But now remain to drink the night From vials black and thick with steam Such intoxicating delights That leave you drunk inside this dream And you watch them take the light from you And you find yourself On a velvet couch Tasting the skin of a foreign girl Her eyes are black And wet like oil And she ties your hands with a string of pearls And you tremble like a frightened bird As she closes in and captures you To place you in the silver cage Deep within her poisoned womb And once you're safe inside She might let you out to fly In the circles around the room But it's always night And there is no moon And you wonder if you are alive And you're not sure if you want to be But you drank her sweat like it was wine And you lay with her on a bed of blue And it's awful sweet Like the fruit she cuts and feeds to you

Brighten Your Night With My Day

JAMES TAYLOR "James Taylor"
Daybreak finds you up and alive just as though you could touch a star. But sunset seems to leave you weary, alone and wondering who you are. Don't deny that lonely feeling, babe, that keeps stealing on you from deep down inside. Hey, can't you see that it's no good concealing a feeling it hurts you to hide? When you can come home to me, yes, I'm happy to hear what you've got to say to me, baby, all the way. Girl, you can count on me, watch those shadows fade away, and brighten your night with my day. Daybreak, sunset, hot and cold running smiles and tears. A bright outside to match your foolish pride, but not a word for the lonely years. Please come back home to me, now you won't have to say that you'll stay with me, baby, no, it's not that way. Just come back home to me, watch those shadows fade away, And brighten your night with my daybreak, sunset, you don't have to cry no more. Now, everything's gonna be just fine, watch out, baby, here it comes, Right around the corner, here it comes, just brighten your night with my day.

If You Could Touch Her At All

WAYLON JENNINGS "Waylon & Willie"
Funny a woman can come on so wild and free Yet insist I don't watch her undress or watch her watch me And stand by my bed and shiver as if she were cold Just to lie down beside me and touch me as if I were gold One night of love can't make up for six nights alone But I'd rather have one than none Lord cause I'm flesh and bone And sometimes it seems that she ain't worth the trouble at all But she could be worth the world if somehow you can touch her at all Right or wrong a woman can own any man She can take him inside her and hold his soul in her hand Then leave him as weak and weary as a newborn child Fighting to get his first breath and open his eyes One night of love can't make up... And sometimes it seems...
