Relatively Speaking

Original and similar lyrics
(Hancock/Denver) Relatively speaking, you make me who I am. I need you exactly like the ocean needs the land. I need you like sunshine needs the shadows and the night, I need you the way love needs the savage hurtful fight. Relatively speaking, I'm nothing without you, You are where I've been before, you are where I'm going to. You are living out my dreams and you are all my fears. You evoke my laughter; you unleash every tear. The rich ones need the poor ones, the blind need those with sight. Sinners need the pure of heart, the black ones need the white. Relatively speaking, the contrast makes it go. Every action taken is related in the flow. Stars and losers, kings and fools go dancing hand in hand. Relatively speaking, you make me who I am. The sick ones need the well ones, the living need the dead. Heaven needs its hell, you know, and love needs lonely beds. Relatively speaking, the contrast makes it go. Every action taken is related in the flow. Stars and losers, kings and fools go dancing hand in hand. Relatively speaking, you make me who I am, who I am.

I Keep Them On The Floor Beside My Bed

AGNETHA FALTSKOG "A"
I knew I had to leave that day I couldn't take it anymore Yes, I had it all by then But I lost myself somehow Well who cares what I do now I never thought I'd hurt this much My heart would break so easily I'm a fool and that's a fact I'm a fool now I can see Our love was meant to be The memory starts to flow The picture is me and you I keep them on the floor beside my bed The images rewind I loose myself in time The movie still playes on inside my head You're always here That's how it seems I feel you even in my dreams I should have stayed and worked it out That's what love is all about Instead I left you all alone Oh! The memory starts to flow The picture is me and you I keep them on the floor beside my bed Summer nights together Walking hand in hand Why is love so hard to understand To understand I should have stayed and worked it out That's what love is all about Instead I left you all alone The memory starts to flow The picture is me and you I keep them on the floor beside my bed The images rewind I loose myself in time The movie still players on inside my head The memory starts to flow The picture is me and you I keep them on the floor beside my bed Summer nights together walking hand in hand Why is love so hard to understand

Terra Nova

JAMES TAYLOR "JT"
(Taylor/Simon) Oh, end this day, show me the ocean. When shall I see the sea? May this day set me in emotion, I ought to be on my way. We were there, we were sailing on the Terra Nova. Sailing for the setting sun, sailing for the new horizon. May this day show me an ocean, I ought to be on my way. Ought to be on my way right now. Stepping on the boat with a lump in my throat, on my way right now. I got a letter from a dear friend of mine, the story of a spiritual awakening. She spoke of her love returning in kind, she let me know that she'd be waiting. And I should be on my way by now. Walking across the floor, reaching for the door, on my way by now. But here I sit, country fool that I am, my elbow on my knee and my chin in my hand. My mind in the gutter and my eye on the street, holed up in a cave of concrete. And I ought to be on my way right now. Packing my things while the telephone rings, on my way right now. I miss my lovely mother and I love my lonely father. I know I owe my brothers one thing and another, I hear my sister singing. And I ought to be on my way right now. Moving across the land with my heart in my hand, on my way by now, ought to be on my way by now. Oh, end this day, set me in motion. Ought to be on my way. Out of the west of Lambert's Cove, there's a sail out in the sun. And I'm on board though very small, I've come home to stop yearning. Burn off the haze around the shore, turn off the crazy way I feel. I'll stay away from you no more, I've come home to stop yearning.

Take You Home

ANGIE MARTINEZ "Animal House"
[VERSE 1:] I got a call from my girls around eight about that Friday spot Round 12 hit the highway stop, I need gas Car behind me on my ass, speed pass Turn the radio on that's my joint got me and I need to dance Pull up in the truck and it ain't my man's You screaming 'hey yo', you don't got a chance Son, you are speaking a language I don't understand Know the dude I hang with, I don't hold his hand Cause, me, I'm free to choose It's possible to leave with you When we get through, I drive passenger seat for you Let's ride At one I arrive Walked past the line Damn his ass is fine Some guy now we up in the spot Watch Place hot Couple of bottles champagne popped And that's how we doing it now I'm scheming while the DJ's moving the crowd [CHORUS 2X:] I was wondering if I could take you home Would ya still love me baby, if I could take you home I was wondering if I could take you home Would ya still love me baby, if I could take you home [VERSE 2:] It's around 2 A.M. The mood is trend The club is snug I see him watching, love is love Caught him when I looked up, gave him a glance Promotion chick walked over while I'm shaking her hand I'm looking over her Sorry but I'm waiting for this man Is what I told her, so she could leave No breaking up my plans No time for talking about shows Or dates that I could host Damn, he walking over to me, they breaking out the jokes My girls laughing They see me already imagining He whispered in my ear, would I dance with him I answered him He took my hand with him Dancing close I turned around and gave him my back, he passed a smoke He put his hand on my hip, then my stomach He must want it And I was really just 'bout to leave, his clique fronted Like they don't see That they man 'bout to tell 'em peace And to think, I wasn't even gonna go out..see [CHORUS] [VERSE 3:] All I need is my lip gloss, I.D., gum, and I'm straight Especially if it's Envy in bungalow eight We making it hot on the dance floor today But my girls wanna leave cause there's nothing to take Nothing to meet Spot dead, nothing to see Then we all agree that we won't leave Cause some spots the papi's still come at three That's when I tell the DJ to run that please He dancing behind me I feel what's under his jeans And I had one too many so I'm under his scheme I mean I'm cool and the gang The music is playing Think I found what I'm looking for, no purpose in waiting Almost time for breakfast Standing by the coat checkers Looking for my parking lot ticket...that's it And this night just ended Can't say with who, what, or where but it'll definitely be remembered [CHORUS] [OUTRO:] Would you be my boyfriend [3X] For tonight only Would you be my boyfriend [3X] For tonight only

I Love Fucking Up

Frenzal Rhomb
I liked you better you were running on top Taught you to dance and you told me to stop Get on the freeway at two hundred and five That's not the limit when you're learning to drive I always marvel at decisions I make Eight hundred thousand two hundred and fifty mistakes No good a fighting and I'm no good in bed Thought it was raining when you pissed down my leg I'm having trouble with my Saturday night Thought your stool sample was vegemite I broke my arm when I was going berserk And now I play the guitar but my fingers don't work 'cause I love fucking up I got a stereo I couldn't afford I got a mobile and I asked for a cord Two speed automatic washing machine I took it to the Laundromat to get my clothes clean I always wonder at the decisions I make Twenty seven hundred thousand stupid mistakes 'cause I love fucking up I thought I can't get no satisfaction was by the Rollins band And I can't get no girly action unless it's with my hand Another funny anecdote, at my expense I didn't find it that funny, thought it didn't make sense Sentences I can't construct Teenagers I will corrupt 'cause I love fucking up I thought I can't get no satisfaction was by the Rollins band And I can't get no girly action unless it's with my hand If the the deaf dumb blind kid gave a speech then I would interrupt 'casue I love fucking up

I Love You Forever

JEWEL "Sweet And Wild"
You and I walking slowly Hand in hand Footprints in the sand Watch the wind as it plays Throwing shadows across your face The sky was so blue Your eyes so green The air glittering So sudden, so swift Love came to us Just like a gift I lived here, you lived far away Our lives called us back, no we could not stay With a sad sort of smile you took my hand Said while we're apart you hope I understand that... [Chorus:] You'll be holding me And I'll be holding you Through those long nights My love will be pulling you through When you see the stars Pretend they're my arms When you feel the air That is me kissing you there Say you love me And I will say I love you No distance could ever make that untrue When I'm far away I'll reach through time and space When you hear the wind You'll hear me saying I love you forever Fast forward our love story I still remember that day Her small precious face You stared into her eyes Hypnotized by her smile But your job meant you had to travel But we weren't ready for you to go You held our daughter with a sad sort of smile Said while we're apart I want you to know that... [Repeat Chorus] God forbid there'll come a day When the light in my eyes fades away But from your hearts I will not go No bounds shall my spirit know, cause [Repeat Chorus 2x]
