Islands

Original and similar lyrics
Islands call out to me like the highlands that I always see in my dreams of home, I am never alone when I'm there. Islands, like so many dreams, are like canyons, but off the main stream. And there's no one there, the dreamer is always alone. And the mighty blue ocean keeps rolling on every shore, like the spirit that binds us together, we are so much more than islands. Islands belong to the sea like the dark sands of my memory. When the morning comes they are stepping-stones to the sun. And the mighty blue ocean keeps rolling on every shore, like the spirit that binds us together, we are so much more than islands, islands.

Glad Bluebird Of Happiness

JOAN BAEZ "David's Album"
I was walking down the road, not caring much where I was going A heavy pack upon my back, burly good with inner sad of loneliness When fluttered by this bird of blue, he said I'll tell you what I 'll do Since you seem to be so sad, I will try and be your glad.. Bluebird of happiness And he goes flying, far over the ocean blue, Bound for places, I am not known to. I decided to follow him, my thoughts have faded dim since then Blown foggy by the wind a paced,as from shore to shore we race, Move from place to place The moon is hot, the stars are cold. I've been there, thats how I know I've touched the desert sunsets coat Placed to dove the melted snows of Kilimanjaro And he goes flying, far over the ocean blue, Found the places, I am not known to. I'll follow that bird until he dies and when he does then so will I, I know I 'll never be the same, life to me is bound to change When that ends the chase I lift his body from the sea, let him dry in a trade wind breeze Find some merry christmas views, wrap them up and give them to you My bluebird of happiness And he goes flying, far over the ocean blue, Found the places, I am not known to.

When We're Together

JOSHUA RADIN "Wax Wings"
It's the whisky and the water Fire and ice No pleasure without sacrifice Shore and the ocean The moon and the sun One without the other and both are done [Chorus:] Now I believe what's supposed to be Supposed to be you and me I'm with you forever Cause we're the best when we're together I'm with you forever You are the only one and we've just begun Let the wave and your ocean fall on my shore Your glass is empty, I'll pour some more I left the table with lack of a muse Give me some time to search for you [Chorus] There are mountains that reach to the sky That I would climb to find you If you forget I will do my best to try to remind you [Chorus]

Wabash Cannonball

JOHNNY CASH "Happiness Is You"
From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore She climbs a flowery mountains o'er the hills and by the shore She's mighty tall and handsome she's known quite well by all She's a regular combination on the Wabash Cannonball Listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar As she glides along the woodland o'er the hills and by the shore Hear the mighty rush of the engine hear those lonesome hoboes call Traveling through the jungle on the Wabash Cannonball Well she came down from Birmingham one cold December day As she pulled into the station you could hear all the people say She's from Tennessee she's long and she's tall She came down from Birmingham on the Wabash Cannonball Listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar As she glides along the woodland o'er the hills and by the shore Hear the mighty rush of the engine hear those lonesome hoboes call Traveling through the jungle on the Wabash Cannonball Here's to daddy Claxton may his name forever stand And always be remembered in the courts throughout the land His earthly race is over and the curtains round him fall We'll carry him home to Dixie on the Wabash Cannonball Listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar As she glides along the woodland o'er the hills and by the shore Hear the mighty rush of the engine hear those lonesome hoboes call Traveling through the jungle on the Wabash Cannonball

World Falls

INDIGO GIRLS "Nomads Indians Saints"
I'm coming home with a stone strapped onto my back I'm coming home with a burning hope turning all my blues to black I'm looking for a sacred hand to carve into my stone A ghost of comfort angels breath to keep this life inside my chest This world falls on me hopes of immortality Everywhere I turn all the beauty just keeps shaking me Now I woke up in the middle of a dream scared the world was too much for me Sejaraz said, don't let go just plant the seeds and watch them grow I've slept in rainy canyonlands cold drenched to my skin I always wake to find a face to calm these troubled lands This world falls on me dreams of immortality Everywhere I turn all the beauty just keeps shaking me Now I'm running to the end of the earth and I'm swimming to the edge of the sea And I'm laughing I'm under starry skies this world was meant for me Don't bury me (Carry me) I wish I was a nomad, an indian, or a saint The edge of death would disappear leave me nothing left to taint I wish I was a nomad, an indian, or a saint Give me walking shoes, feathered arms, and a key to heaven's gate This world falls on me dreams of immortality Everywhere I turn all the beauty just keeps shaking me Amy: I'm running to the end of the Earth And I'm swimming to the edge of the sea I'm laughing I'm under starry skies This world was meant for me I got hopes of immortality Emily: This world falls on me dreams of immortality Everywhere I turn all the beauty just keeps shaking me This world falls on me dreams of immortality Everywhere I turn I got hopes of immortality

If I Was Your Man

JOAN OSBORNE "Righteous Love"
Floating above you beyond the naked eye Blue dreams about you keep playing in my mind Oh if I was Oh if I was your man Oh if I was Oh if I was your man I'm just a satellite so lazy in the breeze Ready to fly away, I need your gravity When I run down the path the turns look all the same And if I lose my way your mind will call my name Oh if I was Oh if I was your man Oh if I was Oh if I was your man Let's go outside to a dark place Where the kitty cat hides put on your fake wings give the moon a ride When you're lonely for the angel inside 3:30 in the morning is too easy for you But when it comes without a warning What are you gonna do this time? You gonna do this time? Floating above you beyond the naked eye Blue dreams about you comes rushing through my mind Branded with thoughts of you They're tattooed on my sou; Why don't they seem to fade Is what I'll never know Oh if I was Oh if I was your man Oh if I was Oh if I was your man Oh if I was Oh if I was your man
