Nobody Can Take My Dreams From Me

Original and similar lyrics
(Danoff) There are minstrels and beggars, poems in the sight of the king. Sometimes they sleep in the daytime, come out in the night time and sing. They come into the castle, through whatever window they can find, they come into your mind. Dreams of flying, dreams of being free. No one can take my dreams from me. No one can take my dreams from me. You can bind me in chains, lock me up in a jailhouse to rot. And if you come to see me, you might think I'm there but I am not. They can sail into prison, find their way through any basement door, they can offer you more. Dreams of flying, dreams of being free. No one can take my dreams from me. No one can take my dreams from me. You can take my money, take my reputation, can even take my color TV, no one can take my dreams from me. No one can take my dreams from me. No one can take my dreams from me.

Want You To Want Me

ANGGUN "Chrysalis"
I'm here give me a glance, been following you like a shadow This is how I spent my time dreaming about our days tomorrow Another day has gone bye another moon another sun I can wait for you my love Don't want to do any harm just find a gate to your attention Sometimes I walk away coz I know that we can't ever be together Sometimes I close my mind I can't keep this love for myself any longer Somehow I have to find the right time to say that I want you to want me, Even in my dreams I hope yo know who I am through all the letters I have sent you I know I'm not the only one wanting and dreaming about you Two different world between us, you're on the spotlights far from my touch I can't wait here forever For a sign from your eyes the magic I wish I could have Should've walked away coz I knew that we can't ever be together Should've closed my mind should've known that this love can't go any further Should've stopped myself from this dream coz life will never want you to want me even in my dreams In my dreams

Stars

AER "Aer"
[Intro - Dave:] I could give you what you want If you give me what you need I could take away your pain And still bring you to your knees I don’t need no guns or drugs I just need my own company and I’m free Oh yeah, I’m free – I could never give in [Verse 1 - Carter:] The fruit of our labor always the ripest Time after time I’m clocking in the night shift Blow that green for the environmental crisis Motorcycle license, lemme see where Mike is Cuz we got problems but they all artificial They all stop when he pull out the whistle Our team to the game fires the missiles Armed w a pistol, scarrin that tissue Nikes with the red are my choice on the road Color of the revolution yeah my voice should be heard From misters to misses to hipsters and more This efficient you wish you had this in store But you don’t so move on we always rock steady Born for this purpose I’m way beyond ready This is way beyond trendy, way beyond Fendi Way beyond any story that’ll come to an ending [Hook - Dave:] Cuz the stars gon’ shine just a little overhead Get your mind right, limelight ain’t nothing but a test It’s okay for you to doubt me, but my inner demons live Through this music, and I use it to get ahead [Verse 2 - Carter:] Fair weather friends see the sun shining Need find a way to prescribe the mind when crunch time hits No stress, lets find out what unsigned is Been dreaming about this since the lunch line with the lights on my kicks I get congratulated but I need to work harder It’s time to open up cuz I can’t breathe with all this armor on Shield in hand, wielded sword, waiting for a milestone Keep peace, there’s no way in hell imma die alone I heard of something but I’m still unaware of specifics I don’t care if it’s by the Atlantic or the Pacific The FAM crew will be a perfect addition It’s obvious that I slur semantics Tryna make everything work to my advantage Careers with no spark tend to fade out and vanish So don’t take on more than you can manage [Hook - Dave]

I Got Rhythm

ELLA FITZGERALD "Oh Lady Be Good!-Best Of Gers"
Days can be sunny with never a sigh Don't need what money can buy Birds in the trees sing their dayful of songs Why shouldn't we sing along? I'm chipper all the day Happy with my life How do I get that way? Look at what I've got: I got rhythm, I got music, I got my man Who could ask for anything more? I've got daisies in green pastures I've got my man Who could ask for anything more? Old man trouble I don't mind him You won't find him 'round my door I've got starlight I've got sweet dreams I've got my man Who could ask for anything more? Old man trouble, I don't mind him You won't find him 'round my door I've got starlight I've got sweet dreams I've got my man Who could ask for anything more? Oh, I've got rhythm I've got music I've got daisies in green pastures I've got starlight I've got sweet dreams I've got my man Who could ask for anything more? I've got rhythm, I've got rhythm ...

Closet Chronicles

KANSAS "Point Of Know Return"
(Steve Walsh / Kerry Livgren) Once carried through the current And being swept away The king is in the closet He's hiding from today And though he owns all fortunes This room is where he'll stay And his world is filled with darkness, turning grey Gazing out the window Of the 42nd second floor He is separate from all others No one knocks upon his door And it might as well be raining 'cause the sunlight hurts his eyes And his ears will never hear the children's cries Once proud and full of passion He fought the cause of man Many people loved his courage Many followed his command He changed the old into the new And the course of things to come And then one day they noticed he was gone At first it didn't matter Nobody seemed to care They all became too busy To find him anywhere do no one knew hot even him The problems he would find On the day he journeyed deep into his mind I close my eyes I go far away Away from this battlefield In my dreams well here I will enjoy it Where innocence plays with all the laughing children The kind who are crying right now A taste of freedom from the pain Of everything here I see Life is sweet but I took it all for granted And now I don't know if I could even tell you Just what we permit, we allow Allow me to forget the life I've made my own I've held this nation in my hand And yet it's not my home Allow me just one answer just one reason why Why this refugee of the family of man must die Tell me why Daydreams filled his nighttimes And night dreams filled his days Confusion and uncertainty A puzzled mind of haze You thought he was so powerful And set upon his ways Well he left us all to travel through this maze I heard the king was dying I heard the king was dead And with him died the chronicles That no one ever read The closet's fully empty now It's occupied by none I'll draw the drapes now destiny is done

Bridegroom Blues

John Wesley Harding "The Name Above The Title"
The streets are doing a wardance As their sight is restored to the blind And I'm sifting trash on the offchance That there might be something to find And Mary lets her fingers do the walking Her baby's nearly due She's listening but no-one's talking At the citizen's advice bureau And Joe is down on the dole-queue He should have signed on yesterday Even if he was a carpenter and she was his lady He still wouldn't be able to make it pay No And he don't believe in Angels She's been seeing another man Infidelity runs in the family But that wasn't a part of the plan And shepherds watch the flicks by night At the King's Cross all night show Something's trying to catch their eyes But they're too grossed out to know And the three kings travel like three ships a-sailing They've got some gifts he'll need Cocaine for sniffing, money for corruption, and a whole load of videos of I Love Lucy But the king of the country he's getting frightened He doesn't want to be another man's pawn And he crushes the beer can between his hands He sees his fate, the clown yells Checkmate And another star is born But the baby is killed in an instant As though his whole life were a dream Though his book sells well and he pulls out the stops Everyone knows he's a hyped-up hasbeen And the t-shirts just embarrass And thought become memories after a while He's looking so much older now It's hard to belive that that was style And he throws his cloak out to his fan It's his last chance sacrifice The girls are crawling a cut-glass sea No-one even wants to look twice Cos the circle's all but full now But the stalls are empty for the latest son Who just smiles and says Give my regards to Fleet Street, I've gotta run The streets are doing a wardance As their sight is restored to the blind And I'm sifting trash on the offchance That there might be something to find...
