The Place I Love

Original and similar lyrics
The place I love is a million miles away, it's too far for the eye to see Still it's me at least, and you can't come there No one is allowed at all Only animals that love, will always, only, ever could be Still it's always at the back of my mind. The place I love is overgrown now With beautiful moss and colourful flowers And goldfish that swim in a pool, there's a small brick wall With neon lighting controlled by lightning I'm making a stand against the world There's those who would hurt us if they heard. And its always in the back of my mind The place I love is no where near here, Not within a yard of those trendy do's, Where dogsbodies pick you up, and graciously give you a lift, With cherished thoughts and bitterness. I'm making a stand against the world, There's those who would hurt us if they heard And it's always in the back of my mind

Lover I Don't Have To Love

BRIGHT EYES
I picked you out Of a crowd and talked to you. Said I liked your shoes, You said, Thanks, Can I follow you? So it's up the stairs, And out of view. No prying eyes. I poured some wine. I asked your name; You asked the time. Now it's two o'clock. The club is closed, We are up the block. Your hands are on me, Pressing hard against your jeans, Your tongue in my mouth, Trying to keep the words from coming out, You didn't care to know Who else may have been here before. I want a lover I don't have to love, I want a girl who is too sad to give a fuck. Where's the kid with the chemicals? I thought he said to meet him here, But I'm not sure. I've got the money If you've got the time. He said, It feels good. I said I'll give it a try. Then my mind went dark, We both forgot where your car was parked. Let's just take the train. I'll meet up with the band in the morning Bad actors, with bad habits... Some sad singers, they just play tragic. And the phone is ringing, And the van is leaving Let's just keep touching, Let's just keep...keep singing I want a lover I don't have to love, I want a boy who's so drunk that he doesn't talk. Where's the kid with the chemicals? I got a hunger and I can't seem to get full. I need some meaning I can memorize. The kind I have always seems to slip my mind. But you, but you... You write such pretty words, But life's no storybook. Love's an excuse to get hurt. And to hurt. Do you like to hurt? I do, I do. Then hurt me, Then hurt me, Then hurt me...

Place Your Love

ROXETTE "Crash! Boom! Bang!"
Sunday Sick o' my tears Monday morning I could've felt much better. Tuesday You're in my way I wish you would type my heart a letter. Place your love In my world It's for you It's made for you I need time A lot o' time To get you off my mind To get you off my mind. Wednesday Nuthin's OK Thursday afternoon I wish I was sleepin'. Friday and Saturday sun Gettin' up early but I can't get nuthin' done. Place your love In my world It's for you It's all made for you I need time A lot o' time To get you off my mind To get you off my mind. Maybe you'll come here Maybe you'll disappear Maybe the clouds I fear will turn to flowers in the air These cool vibrations They're hitting me all the time You've got me diggin' and divin' in the garden of my mind. It's a high To watch you fly Across the sky All the time To watch you all the time.

He Never Mentioned Love

Kirsty MacColl "Electric Landlady"
(Kirsty MacColl/Jem Finer) I couldn't hear him when he called to me I couldn't hear him at all you see He was down the road away from me How could I know his answer? I couldn't hear him 'though he shouted hard I couldn't hear him in my own backyard The trains were rattling by above He never mentioned love He may have held my hand When we were walking down the street He talked about all kinds of things But none of them were him and me He looked into my eyes Just as an airplane roared above Said something about football But he never mentioned love I never heard him all the times he yelled I never heard him if he tried to tell me If my memory serves me well He never mentioned love I never hurt him 'though he says I did I never hurt him but I die a bit Each time he passes on the street He never mentions love I used to call him every night And pray that he was home I couldn't bear the feeling I might have to live my life alone But now my phone is off the hook The word came from above It told me I was wasting time If he never mentioned love I never heard him if he said he cared I never heard him, I kept my claws bared I never heard the things he says he said He never mentioned he was scared I never heard him when he asked of love I never heard him as the skies above Chucked buckets on the both of us He never mentioned love So if I seem hardhearted I would like the court to note He never mentioned love to me In anything he wrote And if I seem coldblooded I should like to tell the judge In all the time I knew this man He never spoke of love (or if he did) I never heard him when he called to me I never heard him at all you see He was down the line away from me He never mentioned L.U.V. I never hurt him 'though he says I did I never hurt him I just die a bit Each time we meet upon the street We never mention love

Someone Who Cares

DUSTY SPRINGFIELD "Brand New Me"
(Alex Harvey) Someone who cares Someone who dares to love you Someone who thinks enough of you To always be willing to share, mmmm Someone who gives Someone who lives inside you Someone who'll be strong beside you Through all the days that you live, mmmm I've made up my mind that you're gonna love me I've made in my heart a soft place for you I've made up my mind that you're gonna love me I've made in my heart a soft place for you Oh, someone who dreams Of being in your life tomorrow And sharing your joys and your sorrow Helping you see what it means To be loved, mmmm

A World Without Love

Anything Box "Worth"
(Claude S.) If I heard you say, The world is everything I would be dreaming Of living quietly. And if I heard you say, The world is too cold to touch. I could change your mind With just a kiss... What are we gonna do In a world without love... What are we gonna Do in a world without love... Do we feel the pain Of our neighbor's heart, Do we understand The human mind? 'Cause if we did, Would it make us live Together in this lonely world? In this lonely world... What are we gonna do In a world without love... What are we gonna Do in a world without love... If you walk this way, And you dance with me... Hopefully I can change The loneliness. 'Cause in your eyes I see the laughter hide, Hiding so deeply Always within you... What are we gonna do In a world without love... What are we gonna do In a world without love... Sweet love...
