Some versions of the first album do not contain this song. Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine A million tomorrows shall all pass away ‘Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, Today I'll be a dandy, and I'll be a rover You'll know who I am by the songs that I sing I'll feast at your table, I'll sleep in your clover Who cares what the morrow shall bring Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine A million tomorrows shall all pass away ‘Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, Today I can't be contented with yesterday's glory I can't live on promises winter to spring Today is my moment, now is my story I'll laugh and I'll cry and I'll sing Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine A million tomorrows shall all pass away ‘Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, Today Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine A million tomorrows shall all pass away ‘Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, Today Words and Music by Randy Sparks

A Case Of You

DIANA KRALL
Just before our love got lost you said, I am as constant as a northern star. And I said, Constantly in the darkness. Where's that at? If you want me I'll be in the bar. On the back of a cartoon coaster In the blue TV screen light I drew a map of Canada, oh Canada With your face sketched on it twice Chorus: Oh, you are in my blood like holy wine You taste so bitter and you taste so sweet Oh, I could drink a case of you, darling And I'd still be on my feet I'd still be on my feet Oh, I am a lonely painter I live in a box of paints I'm frightened by the devil And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid I remember that time you told me Love is touching souls Well surely you touched mine 'Cause part of you pours out of me In these lines from time to time Oh, you're in my blood like holy wine You taste so bitter and so sweet Oh I could drink a case of you I could drink a case of you, darling And I'd still be on my feet I'd still be on my feet I met a woman She had a mouth like yours She knew your life She knew your devils and your deeds And she said, Go to him, stay with him if you can But be prepared to bleed Oh, you are in my blood like holy wine You taste so bitter and you taste so sweet Oh, I could drink a case of you, darling And I'd still be on my feet I'd still be on my feet.

Vino De Amor

ANDY WILLIAMS
Vino de Amor from the magical vine Once you've taken a sip of that sweet summer wine You'll be lost in its spell Then I know you'll be mine So let's drink to el vino de amor Vino de amor and the taste of your lips Leave a heavenly glow when I've stolen a kiss It's a moment in time like a total eclipse So let's drink to el vino de amor As evening falls you are here in my arms And the sound of the sea's like a million guitars We'll lie beneath the blanket of stars And we'll drink el vino de amor We've tasted love on a warm starry nights As I look in your eyes in the soft morning light No I'll never forget such a beautiful sight Here's a toast to el vino de amor

Diadems

MEGADETH "Hidden Treasures"
Sacriledge and Blasphemy Sets the stage today The more insatiable the sex The more swelled our tongues became As pre-historic as it seems This is now, today As pre-historic as it seems This is now Talkin' 'bout no vision Talkin' 'bout no dream The Harlot puddles for her Lies From where she speaks I look above and see Entrails in the sky This song ain't over 'til the Fat lady dies One man rules the earth And rides the seven-headed beast Ten diadems, to rule them all, to crown them all The world, religion at his feet Dreams are told of dreams of old This day will surely come So, run my child and hide your face Once you've been marked it's finished, done You'll become one You're mine You're one I saw a new earth today I saw a former pass away I saw a new earth today I saw a former pass away Vengence is mine Vengence is mine The Netherworld and Sheol Are never satisfied So the eyes of Man are Never sat-is-fied I saw a new Earth today I saw a former pass away

Sweet Evening Breeze

JOHN COUGAR MELLENCAMP "Human Wheels"
I was loud and a little sad. She was visiting from Atlanta, Georgia. She had come to spend the summer with her dad. I thought she was very pretty. We would kiss and hold hands Every night by the football field. Her body was tan From the afternoons by the public swimming pool. Sweet evening breeze Blows around my thoughts and memories. As I lie here today And drink my tea, I can still see Sweet evening breeze. I saw her in a coffee shop In a big hotel down in Austin, Texas. She had cut her long hair off And replaced it with Blue eyes of sadness. Still acted like we were kids And she told me that she had to marry And she asked me if I did Still remember. Sweet evening breeze Blows around my thoughts and memories. As I lie here today And drink my tea, I can still see Sweet evening breeze. How redundant the future can be. These days of old are very, very Ridiculous for me to see When I think about the real gone stories And how time holds the winning hand. I can tell by the lines on our faces And the young can't understand That they look at me When they look at themselves. Oh, sweet evening breeze Blows around my thoughts and memories. As I lie here today And drink my tea, I can still see Sweet evening breeze.
