Two Sisters

Original and similar lyrics
Sylvilla looked into her mirror Percilla looked into the washing machine And the drudgery of being wed She was so jealous of her sister And her liberty, and her smart young friends She was so jealous of her sister Sylvilla looked into the wardrobe Percilla looked into the frying pan And the bacon and eggs And the breakfast is served She was so jealous of her sister And her way of life, and her luxury flat She was so jealous of her sister She threw away her dirty dishes just to be free again Her women's weekly magazines just to be free again And put the children in the nursery just to be free again Percilla saw her little children And then decided she was better off Than the wayward lass that her sister had been No longer jealous of her sister So she ran 'round the house with her curlers on No longer jealous of her sister

Ballad In Plain D

BOB DYLAN "Another Side Of Bob Dylan"
I once loved a girl, her skin it was bronze With the innocence of a lamb, she was gentle like a fawn I courted her proudly, but now she is gone Gone as the season she's taken. Through young summer's breeze, I stole her away From her mother and sister, though close did they stay Each one of them suffering from the failures of their day With strings of guilt they tried hard to guide us. Of the two sister, I loved the young With sensitive instincts, she was the creative one The constant scapegoat, she was easily undone By the jealousy of others around her. For her parasite sister, I had no respect Bound by her boredom, her pride to protect Countless visions of the other she'd reflect As a crutch for her scenes and her society. Myself, for what I did, I cannot be excused The changes I was going through can't even be used For the lies that I told her in hopes not to lose The could-be dream-lover of my lifetime. With unseen consciousness, I possessed in my grip A magnificent mantelpiece, though its heart being chipped Noticing not that I'd already slipped To a sin of love's false security. From silhouetted anger to manufactured peace Answers of emptiness, voice vacancies Till the tombstones of damage read me no question but, 'Please What's wrong and what's exactly the matter ' And so it did happen, like it could have been foreseen The timeless explosion of fantasy's dream At the peak of the night, the king and the queen Tumbled all down into pieces. 'The tragic figure' her sister did shout 'Leave her alone, God damn you, get out' And I in my armor, turning about And nailing her in the ruins of her pettiness. Beneath a bare light bulb the plaster did pound Her sister and I in a screaming battleground And she in between, the victim of sound Soon shattered as a child to the shadows. All is gone, all is gone, admit it, take flight I gagged in contradiction, tears blinding my sight My mind it was mangled, I ran into the night Leaving all of love's ashes behind me. The wind knocks my window, the room it is wet The words to say I'm sorry, I haven't found yet I think of her often and hope whoever she's met Will be fully aware of how precious she is. Ah, my friends from the prison, they ask unto me 'How good, how good does it feel to be free ' And I answer them most mysteriously 'Are birds free from the chains of the skyway'

Sister Of Free

Mad Dog Loose
Gimme more Gimme more of your shiny side If human is devine They talk a lot You can keep the ocean On your left or take And early morning dip Into this very moment That alone is free to go Translate it into action Paying lipservice to satisfaction Smile and see sister of free Down at your knee Whisper whisper who dares Between the lines beyond your cloud Well there's a child that's trying to get out When it will it'll turn to you It'll turn to you Sister of free Down at your knee

My Sisters Dress

Her Six Daughters
Grateful as an orphan Invited to the ball I seduced your picture There up on my wall I borrowed without asking I kept without regret We drove that truck backwards Down twisting turning roads I whispered family secrets No one should ever know I wanted you so badly I had to confess She'd never do the things I did In my sister's dress (chorus) In my sister's dress I felt free and rotten through and through I'm a sinner blessed Laid out across the hood In my sister's dress The shoes I bought at Woolworths Were two inches too tall Twisted my foot in gravel You did not let me fall I pulled that hem to mid-thigh She never would have guessed All the fun I had that night In my sister's dress (chorus) instrumental (chorus) In my sister's dress I felt free and rotten through and through I'm a sinner bless Laid out across the hood I had no regrets Lost everything I could In my sister's dress

These Days

DAN FOGELBERG "Captured Angel"
I used to think of myself as a soldier Holding his own against impossible odds Badly outnumbered and caught in a crossfire of devils and gods. All I ever wanted to be was free All I ever wanted to see was within my eyes to see Oh, but, these days Are just like you and me These days Are just like you and me. You used to be something I could believe in How could you let me forsake myself so, You used to think of your life as a riddle with no answer known. All you ever wanted to be was free All you ever looked for was what was within your sights to see Oh, but, these days Are just like you and me These days Are just like you and me We used to live like there was no tomorrow Tasting our trials a day at a time Laughing at sorrow and crying for justice such innocent crimes. All we ever wanted to be was free All we ever looked for was what was within our eyes to see Oh, but, these days Are just like you and me These days are just like you and me Just like you and me. You know they're just like you and me.

Sister Midnight

Glenn Hughes "Hughes and Turner Project"
Night after night, you're out on the street Just like a stray cat on the prowl Down in the neon, the hustle and the heat You got a need to fill somehow Do you wannabe free, tell me how do you see You're outta sight, outta mind Do you feel the same, or are you hiding your pain You're dying to feel so alive Are you living it up - Sister Midnight Taking your chances, checking off your list You always say your life is justified Never stop looking, to see what you missed Trying to fill that empty hole inside Do you wanna be free, tell me how do you see You're outta touch, outta time Now I know your name, are you lost in your shame Don't you know you are living a lie Are you living it up - Sister Midnight Ooh, I'm waiting for the heartache Ooh, I'm waiting for the day That you finally see See what you're doing to me Are you living it up Are you giving it up Have you had enough - Sister Midnight
