Don't Slow Down

Original and similar lyrics
You might believe, and still you feel the chase has just begun. That you must reach that horizon before the setting of the sun. You chase the light in front of you, nightfall close behind. If you stop to catch your breath, you know what you will find. Don't slow down don't touch the ground. You know what you will find. That old grey man in tattered clothes following behind. No time to stop, don't go to sleep, prepare to pay the cost. The hours and minutes are passing by, another day is lost. Impatience is a virtue, catch me if you can. The seconds have been ticking by since your life began.

Bull-rush

PAUL WELLER "Paul Weller"
In a momentary lapse of my condition That sent me tumbling down into a deep despair Lost and dazed so I had no real recollection Until the rain cleared the air When you wake to find that everything has left you And the clothes you wear belong to someone else See your shadow chasing off towards the shoreline Drifting into emptiness There are bullrushes outside my window And their leaves whisper words in the wind Tomorrow I'll walk to the harbour And catch the first boat that's coming in Like a child too small to reach the front door handle Or maybe just too scared to know what I would find Now I feel I'm strong enough to take the slow ride Now knowing when I will arrive I do believe I'm going home 'Cos I don't call this place my home I'm missing what I had, happy times and sad More than I ever thought could be

You Take My Breath Away

QUEEN "A Day At The Races"
Ooh ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh take it take it all away Ooh ooh ooh ooh - ooh take my breath away - ooh Ooh ooh ooh ooh Ooh you take my breath away Look into my eyes and you'll see I'm the only one You've captured my love Stolen my heart Changed my life Everytime you make a move You destroy my mind And the way you touch I lose control and shiver deep inside You take my breath away You can reduce me to tears With a single sigh (Please don't cry anymore) Every breath that you take Any sound that you make Is a whisper in my ear I could give up all my life for just one kiss I would surely die If you dismiss me from your love You take my breath away So please don't go Don't leave me here all by myself I get ever so lonely from time to time I will find you Anywhere you go, I'll be right behind you Right until the ends of the Earth I'll get no sleep till I find you to tell you That you just take my breath away I will find you Anywhere you go Right until the ends of the Earth I'll get no sleep till I find you to Tell you when I've found you - I love you Take my breath, take my breath Take my breath, take my breath Take my breath, take my breath Take my breath, take my breath Take my breath, take my breath Take my breath, take my breath Take my breath, take my breath Take my breath, take my breath Take my breath away.

Prophecy

Rick Ramdehal "Sexy Dancin'"
He comes in a dream to me, he comes when I'm sleeping He says why are you troubled, and why are you weeping In times of trouble, you must know where you stand In pain and in misery, and misery loves company No one's around to see you through, and you don't know what to do When you can't seem to find your ground, and you're head is spinnin' When you're lost and no one's there to help you, Just Carry On I'll carry you through these mines and battlefields, I've Got Your Hand When you're in the trenches and you feel you need some air, Reach Up There Don't you give up, all you gotta do is call for me, I'll Be Right Here I don't know where I'm goin', but I still keep on rollin' Blinded by a false vision, livin' in a contradiction I've got a visual plan, my dreams are gonna come true It's always an uphill battle, takin' chances and makin' a gamble You know he sees everything, he has written the commands Showing the way to retribution, for you to understand When you're lost and no one's there to help you, Just Carry On…. Someday you won't feel this pain, and life won't trouble you much You won't have to run this road again, through these fields of war You come here once in a lifetime, choosing what is right and wrong Troubles that are terrorizin' you, one day, one day will soon be gone And all of your actions they will speak, louder than words Listen what your heart says and believe, just be who you are When you're lost, and no one's there to help you, Just Carry On…. Many will come and go who say, that they know the way They will all pass and you will live, live to see a brighter day They'll try to tell you that they, they have seen the new light But my friend, wisdom is wisdom, and right, right will always be right Soon you will conquer all your fears, and you'll see the light very clear What is real and false in life, you will see through your eyes When you're lost, and no one's there to help you, Just Carry On….

Daydreamer

ADELE "19"
Daydreamer Sitting on the sea Soaking up the sun He is a real lover Of making up the past And feeling up his girl Like he's never felt her figure before A jaw dropper Looks good when he walks Is the subject of their talk He would be hard to chase But good to catch And he could change the world With his hands behind his back, oh You can find him sittin' on your doorstep Waiting for a surprise And he will feel like he's been there for hours And you can tell that he'll be there for life Daydreamer With eyes that make you melt He lends his coat for shelter Plus he's there for you When he shouldn't be But he stays all the same Waits for you Then sees you through There's no way I Could describe him What I'll say is Just what I'm hoping for But I will find him sittin' on my doorstep Waiting for a surprise And he will feel like he's been there for hours And I can tell that he'll be there for life And I can tell that he'll be there for life

Close To You

Far Too Jones "Shame and Her Sister"
watching daybreak, chase shadows from you, as you cling to sleep there's a moment in my world, when I don't want to breathe just want to be silently close to you I see myself as a hand me down, all broken in I see myself tattered and torn, I can be brand new when I'm close to you Don't ever let anyone ever tell me what it is they think I need Because they've never seen the way you look at me As if there's something in me that nobody else can see I keep one hand in the filth of my life, one hand I keep for you You bring me up, you bring me out, you bring me in I want to be, I want to be close to you when I'm close to you you never see things the way I did instead I find I ain't satisfied with the man, the man I think I am anything you want, anything you need I want to be the one you come to, I want to be the one you run to I want to be the only one to, I want to be close to you You've been too far away [Lyrics to Close to You (new version 1999/2000)] watching daybreak, chase shadows from you, as you cling to sleep there's a moment in my world, when I don't want to breathe just want to be quietly close to you I keep one hand in the filth of my life, one hand I keep for you when restless ones tear at my sleeve you're the comfort I believe in I want to be, I want to be close to you I see myself as a hand me down, all broken in and I see myself, I'm tattered and torn, I can be brand new when I'm close to you I never see things the way I did instead I find I ain't satisfied with this man, the man I think I am you know it's true anything you want (yeah), anything you need I want to be the one you come to, I want to be the one you run to I want to be the only one too, I want to be close to you
