TINA ARENA lyrics - Songs Of Love & Loss

To Sir With Love

Original and similar lyrics
Those schoolgirl days Of telling tales and biting nails are gone But in my mind I know that they will still live on and on But how do you thank someone Who has taken you from crayons to perfume It isn't easy, but I'll try If you wanted the sky, I would write across the sky in letters That would soar a thousand feet high To Sir, with love The time has come For closing books and long last looks must end And as I leave I know that I am leaving my best friend A friend who taught me right from wrong And weak from strong, that's a lot to learn What, what can I give you in return If you wanted the moon I would try to make a start But I would rather you let me give my heart To Sir, with love If you wanted the world, I'd surround it with a wall, I'd scrawl These words with letters ten feet tall To Sir, with love

My Little Friend

ELVIS PRESLEY "Suspicious Minds"
(Words music by Shirl Milete) My warped and worried mind resortd To wandering off to ponder things I never talk about A pretty girl I used to know but wouldn't know if we met face to face And defying every logic known I wish all the time machine could take me back again To the wonder of my first love, the old folks tease me 'bout Referring to her only as my little friend Somewhere far away and maybe not so far away The child has grown into a woman of the world I assume just knowing that she knew so much of life at such a tender age I learned from her the whispered things the big boys at the pool hall talk about The thrill and disappointment, fear and shame that first love brings But oh, how I thought I loved my little friend The fragrance of the green grass mingled with the scent of love and warming earth The moonlight night I kissed and cried and swore I'd never touch another girl But time moved fast and I moved on and I loved others time and time again But with each time I thought of her and always gave a little more Assembled love and rememberance for my little friend Oh-oh-oh assembled love and rememberance for my little friend Oh-oh-oh assembled love and rememberance for my little friend Oh-oh-oh assembled love and rememberance for my little friend

Until Next Time

James Lynn Strait "Strait Up"
Featuring Jason Sears of RKL (Rich Kids on LSD) Lyrics written by Jason Sears Music Writen by Lynn Strait/Mikey Doling/Tumor Fahnestock Produced by Mikey Doling/Tumor Fahnestock and Jim Wirt Engineered by Jim Wirt Guitars: Mikey Doling Bass: Tumor Fahnestock Drums: Shannon Larkin As I sit here all alone and wondering why now once again all the others weren't enought you had to take another friend now once again to soon i search for words that just aren't there I give to you my feelings in a song and with a tear Somehow close yet still so far I hold you here deep in my heart I hope and pray these words you'll hear that your at peace and free from fear the question asked full in my rage how could you make this end just seems so wrong that in his frime you'd go and take my friend if goodness comes from tragedy then let this be the case so only thoughs of joy are thought each time we see your face Why did you have to know I hope it's not in vain Cause there has to be a reason or some goodness in my pain Passion churning sensess bluring all the things you taught we learned some things in life we'll never know like how much time we're left to go never fair or justified sad alone I sat and cried of all the questions we must ask Not when, where, who but why so fast? Now looking back I see the day our eyes they first did meet an alligator shirt some jeans and docks upon his feet with out stretched arms we said hello his face a welcome grin You wanna go and spark a bowl nice to meet you my names lynn a battle forges on but it just don't seem the same cause I'm gonna win this battle and I'll do it in your name I say goodbye to you my friend I did a fond farewell at least your up in heaven now not stuck here in this HELL!! On with the show we have to go My thoughts they have been spoken you touched our lives gave others hope and now our hearts are broken of all that come and all that go there's few that have the spark the strength the joy, the energy to truely fill our hearts of whom I speak I sing these words and give this final hymn I say it loud with love and pride and shout I LOVE YOU LYNN!!! Then someone looked up to the sky look there's Lynn he said and off you flew with dobbs by your side I know then you weren't dead you just changed shapes free as a bird to soar the skys above and so we turned and waved goodbye as sadness turned to love

Stolen Car

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN "The River"
I met a little girl and I settled down In a little house out on the edge of town We got married, and swore we'd never part Then little by little we drifted from each other's heart At first I thought it was just restlessness That would fade as time went by and our love grew deep In the end it was something more I guess That tore us apart and made us weep And I'm driving a stolen car Down on Eldridge Avenue Each night I wait to get caught But I never do She asked if I remembered the letters I wrote When our love was young and bold She said last night she read those letters And they made her feel one hundred years old And I'm driving a stolen car On a pitch black night And I'm telling myself I'm gonna be alright But I ride by night and I travel in fear That in this darkness I will disappear

Giving Up On Love

ATARIS "End Is Forever"
these past few weeks I've been confused sometimes I wonder if I'm better off alone. you fall in love then break your heart. you fall in love again its never ending. I used to have this friend who took his fiance to see billy idol a couple weeks before their wedding day. the chick got backstage and left my friend outside. next day he called from a hotel asking for a ride. I guess I'm giving up on love [x3] 'cause it really kind of sucks uninspired and growing tired why am I always so attracted to drama so here I am grown up at 23 will someone tell me what it takes to be happy I play in my band and write a lot of songs about relationships and how mine went wrong. maybe I'll meet that special girl along the way then she'll break my heart and leave me crying.

Love Is A Four-letter Word

JOAN BAEZ "From Every Stage"
Artist : Joan Baez Song : Love Is Just A Four Letter Word Seems like only yesterday I left my mind behind Down in the Gypsy Cafe With a friend of a friend of mine She sat with a baby heavy on her knee Yet spoke of life most free from slavery With eyes that showed no trace of misery A phrase in connection first with she I heard That love is just a four-letter word Outside a rambling store-front window Cats meowed to the break of day Me, I kept my mouth shut, too To you I had no words to say My experience was limited and underfed You were talking while I hid To the one who was the father of your kid You probably didn't think I did, but I heard You say that love is just a four-letter word I said goodbye unnoticed Pushed towards things in my own games Drifting in and out of lifetimes Unmentionable by name Searching for my double, looking for Complete evaporation to the core Though I tried and failed at finding any door I must have thought that there was nothing more Absurd than that love is just a four-letter word Though I never knew just what you meant When you were speaking to your man I can only think in terms of me And now I understand After waking enough times to think I see The Holy Kiss that's supposed to last eternity Blow up in smoke, its destiny Falls on strangers, travels free Yes, I know now, traps are only set by me And I do not really need to be Assured that love is just a four-letter word
