Hey Old Pal

Original and similar lyrics
Hey old pal How've you been doing I'm really not foolin' I'm so glad to see you Hey old pal My life's been kind of crazy I'm ready to be lazy Hangin' around with you Well even in the very, very worst of times There's one thing that I know The way to guarantee A little peace of mind Is a walk in the woods A friend by your side And here we go Hey old pal It's great to be here with you The thing I'd like to give you Is a real good time Hey old pal I really can't believe it But now that you can see it It looks just fine What a chance to play and sing And have some fun The day should never end This will be a Rocky Mountain holiday With you and me And all we can see And all of our friends Hey old pal We must be daydreamin' At least the things we're seein' Are a dream come true Hey there gang It's great to be together It just keeps gettin' better I can promise you This is going to be The very best of times And we will make it so No more hustle and bustle And no more telephone lines And now that we're here Let's grab all our gear And off we go

Mark Rothko Song

Dar Williams "All My Heroes Are Dead"
The blue it speaks so full It's like the beauty one can barely stand Or too much things dropped in your hand And there's a green like the peace In your heart sometimes Printed underneath the sheets of ashy snow And there's a blue like where the urban angels go, very bright Now the Caldor mobile tips a biomorphic sphere Then it swings its dangling pieces round to other paintings here Your behavior is so male It's like you can't explain yourself to me I think I'll ask Renoir to tea For his flowers are as real as they are all the time And the sunlight sets the furniture aglow It's a pleasant time as far as people go, how far do they go? Well his roses are perfect and his words have no wings I know what he can give me and I like to know these things I met her at the funeral She said I don't know what he meant to me I just know he affected me An effect not unlike his art, I believe The service starts and we are in the know He had so much to say but more to show, and ain't that true of life? So we weep for a person who lived at great cost Yet we barely knew his powers till we sensed that we had lost A friend and I in a museum room She says, Look at Mark Rothko's side Did you know about his suicide? Some folks were born with a foot in the grave, but not me, of course And she smiles as if to say we're in the know Then she names a coffee place where we can go, uptown Now the painting is desperate, but the crowds wash away In a crowd of kind pedestrians who've seen enough today

Strung

SMASH MOUTH "The East Bay Sessions"
Chorus: You think it's fun you think it's fun and games Can't tell you 'cause you know everything You know right from wrong but you do it anyway Can't break away, can't seem to get away from you Get away from you, from you, get away from you Get away from Don't know where you're going But you know where you've been Time isn't kind now all the years are showing You don't think it's broke So you don't wanna fix it Don't have a clue Walk away just forget it's you Get away from you, from you, get away from you Get away from you Chorus 2: Caught in the middle What's right, what's real The grass isn't greener, on your side of the fence I tried of this really No one can see I'm really in for A miserable life If you can't dance Then you can't dance with me You better bring your own, I only brought enough for me My best friend is my own prophecy That's what you get when you come along with me Come along with me, come along with Chorus 2 Chorus

We Are Best Friends

Angela Via
CHORUS Anytime you need a friend, you can count on me Anytime you're having doubts, you know I will believe Even through thick and thin, no matter where or when On me you can depend We are best friends Whenever there is something that is trying to knock you down Remember you can call me and we'll get your feet on solid ground You'll never have to worry, don't you ever walk in fear 'Cause through it all you'll have someone who's always standing near Right by your side, If you need my strength, you can tell me There's nothing to hide (CHORUS) You understand the battles we must go through every day If ever I am lost, I know that you will help me find my way I still remember all those times when I was feeling low You picked me up and said there's something I think you should know You're not on your own, whatever you're facing You don't have to face it alone (CHORUS) BRIDGE: As long as we're together, there's no mountain that we can't climb Through the good and the bad, happy or sad This friendship we have will last for all time CHORUS X2

Latest Disaster

STROKE 9 "Rip It Off"
We met one Monday night where my friend bartends and always gives me drinks for free. I caught you staring, or were you comparing the guy you were talking with to me. Then you said: 'This place is dead, and this drink is going to my head. Take me home.' I will, if you chill, there's still time to kill and this night just started looking better. She bought herself a guitar, and she learned a few chords. She wrote me a song that goes like this: Get out, get dressed, you're just like the rest, there's only one thing you're after. You're still the same self-centered bastard. You stay out all night with your shady friends just getting plastered. This relationship's just my latest disaster. I thought that I was doing everything right and giving her everything she needs. But I wake up one morning and all that she's left is a break-up note that reads: You don't, and you won't ever see my side of things... Ahh come on. I would, if I could, but everything I thought was good would just upset her. Our points of view will never meet. I always miss what's incomplete.
