CHRIS REA lyrics - Shamrock Diaries

One Golden Rule

Original and similar lyrics
There's a heart in the middle of somewhere tonight Screaming for reasons or just a way out I put the shirt off my back on a wager that says There's one every night from my old school yard days I hear you say one golden rule One golden rule There's been times I've been stood in the wind and the rain Freezing and busted and tricked out of luck And I cursed my teachers for all of their reading What we needed most can't be found in them books One golden rule Now they teach you to swim but they don't speak of the danger Tell you the truth but they never say why Put you on ice that is thin and tell you it's winter Without one golden rule the truth is a lie One golden rule

One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong

LEONARD COHEN "Songs Of Leonard Cohen"
I lit a thin green candle, to make you jealous of me. But the room just filled up with mosquitos, they heard that my body was free. Then I took the dust of a long sleepless night and I put it in your little shoe. And then I confess that I tortured the dress that you wore for the world to look through. I showed my heart to the doctor: he said I just have to quit. Then he wrote himself a prescription, and your name was mentioned in it! Then he locked himself in a library shelf with the details of our honeymoon, and I hear from the nurse that he's gotten much worse and his practice is all in a ruin. I heard of a saint who had loved you, so I studied all night in his school. He taught that the duty of lovers is to tarnish the golden rule. And just when I was sure that his teachings were pure he drowned himself in the pool. His body is gone but back here on the lawn his spirit continues to drool. An Eskimo showed me a movie he'd recently taken of you: the poor man could hardly stop shivering, his lips and his fingers were blue. I suppose that he froze when the wind took your clothes and I guess he just never got warm. But you stand there so nice, in your blizzard of ice, oh please let me come into the storm.

Oscar Wilde Gets Out

ELTON JOHN "The Diving Board"
Freedom for the scapegoat leaving Reading Jail Rheumy eyes just pierced his heart like crucifixion nails Shaking fists and razors gleamed, you never stood a chance When the ink ran red on Fleet Street You turned your eyes to France Humbled far from Dublin, chased across the waves Your biting wit still sharp enough To slice through every page Destitute and beaten by the system of the crown The bitter pill you swallowed Tasted sweeter going down And looking back on the great indifference Looking back at the limestone wall Thinking how beauty deceives you Knowing how love fools us all A golden boy in velveteen landed in New York The past was so seductive When they paid to hear you talk Baccarat and champagne flutes Tobacco from Virginia Long before the lords and law Branded Oscar Wilde a sinner And looking back on the cold bleak winter Looking back on those long dark days Felt like the head of John the Baptist In the arms of Salome Don't turn around it's a white gull screaming Don't cry out loud you never know who's listening You've seen it all the exiled Unforgiven From the stately homes of England to her prisons And looking back at the hardened lifers Looking back on the wretched poor Thinking maybe they were my saviors Strange to think I'll miss them all Strange to think I'll miss them all [Chorus]

Pittsburgh

MASON JENNINGS "Blood Of Man"
My mom'd give me twenty and say stay out till dawn When her boyfriend was over and they wanted me gone I would walk through the woods to the old graveyard And roll my own tops and think two kind of a thoughts Are we high enough to clear these trees? I don't know That was the summer dave's girlfriend OD'ed She died in the bathroom at a party down the street I went to see him the next night, he had a new tattoo He was watching home movies of her His face was wet, he looked so confused They had a funeral for her The preacher said she was with the Lord There were lots of pictures of her Taped to a poster board Are we high enough to clear these trees? I don't know Are we high enough to clear this place? I don't know Grocery stores in the middle of the night shine their own kinda light High school halls and shopping malls never fit me right But my heart would swing free like a lasso from my hand When I'd hear that sound and put the pedal down I wound up that fall in a hospital On the suicide wing with a lot of people thinkin' one thing They had a sign on the wall that said no touching at all There were screams in the dark, nurses running down the hall On the night that I got there they showered me and searched me hard Then they took me to my little room overlooking a graveyard When I opened my eyes I was strapped to the bed There was a needle in my arm, part of me was gone Then they took us outside in our slippers and gowns To play basketball on the blacktop, the ball just bounced till it stopped Are we high enough to clear these trees? I don't know Are we high enough to clear this place? I don't know Grocery stores in the middle of the night shine their own kinda light High school halls and shopping malls never did me right But my heart would swing free like a lasso from my hand When I'd hear that sound and put the pedal down When the leaves were wet behind the old duplex We used to run at night naked through the trees And you would lean back against me and I would try to stay soft We'd listen to the engines as the planes took off

Take Me To The Top

MOTLEY CRUE
Don't you know, know, know It's a violation I still hear you saying Such a perfect, perfect night No, no, no fight all temptation Well, in a black hearted alley fight I'm screaming Take me to the heights tonight Take me to the top Take me to the top... Too many times Victim accusation No, you don't have to lake it like that A sheer, sheer heart attack No, no, no it's no realisation I never had a way with you But I still hear you saying Take me to the top Take me to the top... Take me to the top To the top and throw me off... Take me to the top
