17 In Abilene

Original and similar lyrics
It'd take about 900 miles round trip To walk on the Gulf of Mexico We'd jump in my daddy's beat up truck Drive all night and don't look back Momma she'd go crazy Just wonderin' where we're at [Chorus:] Seventeen in Abilene You and me, biggest sky you've ever seen There're so many miles of open road And so many places still left to go Seventeen, runnin' from Abilene It doesn't take much for us to drive away Cause all we need's just a little bit of faith I got fifty bucks in my pocket It'll get us there, but maybe not back The sun is shining from head to toe And I don't think I'll ever let you go [Chorus:] Seventeen in Abilene You and me, biggest sky you've ever seen There're so many miles of open road And so many places still left to go Seventeen, runnin' from Abilene I see the stars in your eyes Let's start the rest of our lives tonight [Chorus:] Seventeen in Abilene You and me, biggest sky you've ever seen There're so many miles of open road There're so many places still left to go Seventeen, runnin' from Abilene

Angelene

P.J. Harvey "Is This Desire"
My first name Angelene Prettiest mess you've ever seen Love for money is my sin Any man calls, I'll let him in Rose is my colour, and white Pretty mouth and green my eyes I see men come and go But there'll be one who will collect my soul and come to me Two-thousand miles away He walks upon the coast Two-thousand miles away It lays open like a road Dear God, life ain't kind People getting born and dying But I've heard there's joy untold Lays on that open road in front of me My first name is Angelene

2 White Roses

JEFF BRIDGES "Be Here Soon"
I'm looking at the earth From a million miles away I see a tiny speck of dust Twinkling little spot of floating light Barely visible in infinite space Hanging suspended in the vast eternal light I don't see tears I don't see cars I don't hear the music play Just an endless kind of silence From a million miles away And all our heartbreaking scenes And all our soul searching dreams Are less than small I left her two white roses in the hall I'm looking at the earth From a million miles away It is impossible to tell If it's night or it's day It's just the tiny little jewel The diamond of space A twinkling piece of glitter It sort of marks the place I used to know I don't see war I don't see peace I don't see people on the move It's just an endless kind of stillness From a million miles away And all our heartbreaking scenes And all our soul searching dreams Are less than small I left her two white roses in the hall I'm looking at the earth From a million miles away I wonder Is the singer still singing? Do the children there still play? I wonder will she start to miss me When she sees that I have gone? If tears will fall I left her two white roses in the hall I left her two white roses in the hall

My Front Pages

ARLO GUTHRIE "Running Down The Road"
Words and Music by Arlo Guthrie I remember now the time you left You thought to say farewell But for how long you would be gone There was no way to tell You just set out upon your road It caused you lots of grief And took you many places that You came to, for to leave CHORUS: Alone for years you sailed around At last your ship come in Well, charge admission on her deck Or sail her out again Among the people that you met Are some you'll see again With perfumed flowers in your hands You stood there in the rain They set the stage for anything And everyone was game You came alone and now at home They stop and ask your name CHORUS You'd like to see your friends again The ones left on the road And ramble 'round from town to town And tell me what's been told And sing the song you sang before You sat before the king And fate alone will guide you on And give you words to sing CHORUS

Razed To The Ground

ARCHIVE "Controlling Crowds"
The unassailable leading me down the wide path, I consider the scale the whole aftermath, from the land I sketch a grand design, a being in time, message the floodlight will shine, divine skies will open, open road chosen pausing in time frozen, best left unspoken, about the life settling down, steadily lowered into the ground the sound is quite deafening, confounded regiments getting hounded out, never better the fallout of the sidesplitter, rise of the switch-hitter, watch as he grows bitter, foreseeable futures they be selling him down the river, purified and maybe when we refine and say, you'll be hearing him coming from half a mile away, contemplation still thinking it over onward we soldier clearer than present danger, us we as a planet handing arms to the generations down the line what is left behind? Conscience cannot carry the weight of consequence, says a voice who then utters a vote of confidence, see the level of minerals going down to ground zero, nothing can be stopping declines cycle, wheels turn the sucking it dry desert, but the oceans wave is on the rise in front of your eyes, paralysed you’re rooted into the spot, you can’t move the rot is setting in at a rate of knots. So far from the truth, unavoidable proof revelations will raise the roof, the revolutions will be televised to sensationalise and destabilise, I'm wide eyed aware and wiser to the scandal, it is too much for one man to handle, stand together we might stand a hope in hells chance or else a threatening fate waits.

99 Miles From L.A.

JULIO IGLESIAS "Starry Night"
Keeping my eyes on the road, I see you. Keeping my hands on the wheel, I hold you 99 miles from L.A. I kiss you, I miss you, please be there Passing a white sandy beach, we're sailing Turning the radio on, we're dancing 99 miles from L.A. I want you, I need you, please be there The windshield is covered with rain, I'm crying Pressing my foot on the gas, I'm flying Counting the telephone poles, I phone you Reading the signs on the road, I write you 99 miles from L.A. We're laughing, we're loving, please be there We're laughing, we're loving, please be there
