Jo Stafford lyrics

Things We Did Last Summer

Original and similar lyrics
See the pyramids along the Nile Watch the sun rise on a tropic isle Just remember, darling, all the while You belong to me. See the marketplace in old Algiers Send me photographs and souvenirs But remember when a dream appears You belong to me. I'll be so alone without you Maybe you'll be lonesome too---and blue Fly the ocean in a silver plane Watch the jungle when it's wet with rain Just remember till you're home again You belong to me

True Story Of What Was

ANI DIFRANCO "Educated Guess"
The light blue flickering rhythm Of the neighbor's big console T.V. Is basking on the ceiling Of another insomniac spree And outside sleep's open window Between the drops of rain History is writing a recipe book For every earthly pain Oh to clean up the clutter of echoes Coming in and out of focus Words spoken Like locusts Sing and sing In my head And thing is They often seem In my memory's long dream To be superfluous to The true story of what was Cuz Real is real regardless Of what you try to say Or say away Real is real relentless While words distract and dismay Words that change their tune Though the story remains the same Words that fill me quickly And then are slow to drain Dialogues that dither down reminiscent Of the way it likes to rain Every screen A smoke screen Oh to dream Just for a moment The picture Outside the frame Then in a flash The light blue horizon Spanning a sudden black Is sucked into the vanishing point And quiet rushes back To search for the downbeat In a tabla symphony To search in the darkness For someone who looks like me (Though I'm not really who I said I was Or who I thought I'd be) Just a collection of recollections Conversations consisting Of the kind of marks we make When we're trying to get a pen to work again A lifetime of them! Cough...cough...ahem... I say to me Now here listening I say to the locusts That sing and sing to me sitting Now here on the front porch swing of my eyes... I hereby amend Whatever I've ever said With this sigh

We Belong To The Sea

AQUA "Aquarius"
Take me to the ocean blue Let me dive right into Anything I'll ever capture You can wait up all night Waiting for wrong or right I always knew where I had you You can lie on my waves You can sleep in my caves Living on the edge of peace Knowing that water can freeze Do you still want me to open Come on into my waves You can sleep in my caves Let me know that you will hold me Till the tides take my soul We belong to the sea To the waves you and me Living in the ocean so blue We belong to the sea Open wide being free A minute everlasting with you And as soon as it stops We'll all be a drop Coming down on your wide open sea Can you wash me away Will you dry me one day Take me to the place where I came from If I had a open heart Would you tear that apart Why do I feel that you're lonesome Come on into my waves You can sleep in my caves Let me know that you will hold me Till the tides take my soul We belong to the sea To the waves you and me Living in the ocean so blue We belong to the sea Open wide being free A minute everlasting with you And as soon as it stops We'll all be a drop Coming down on your wide open sea There's a thunder inside me That your silence will kill And I know that you forced me To get rid of what I feel We belong to the sea To the waves you and me Living in the ocean so blue We belong to the sea Open wide being free A minute everlasting with you And as soon as it stops We'll all be a drop Coming down on your wide open sea

I Hear A Rhapsody

Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra
I Remember You Frank Ifield Written by Victor Schertzinger and Johnny Mercer Peaked at # 5 in 1962 (Cover version of the song that originally appeared in the 1942 movie The Fleet's In starring Dorothy Lamour and Bob Eberly) I remember you-ooh You're the one who made my dreams come true A few kisses ago I remember you-ooh You're the one who said I love you, too Yes, I do, didn'tcha know? I remember, too, a distant bell and stars that fell Like the rain out of the blue-ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo When my life is through And the angels ask me to recall The thrill of it all Then I will tell them I remember you-ooh I remember, too, a distant bell and stars that fell Just like the rain out of the blue-ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo When my life is through And the angels ask me to recall The thrill of it all Then I will tell them I remember, tell them I remember Tell them I remember you

Star Mile

JOSHUA RADIN "We Were Here"
Oh doubt in the girl by your side She's feeding your pride As you go for a ride Down the Star Mile Worlds arise as she lets you come in A duo begins To the Hollywood Inn Of the lonely And all the gold dust in her eyes won't reform into rain You had and lost the one thing You kept in a safe place Remember the face Of the girl who had made you her own And how you left her alone All's well at the base of the hill You might need to fill A prescription to kill Off the silence. Look down from your tower on high And take in the night Look her right in the eye She'll listen And all the gold dust in her eyes won't reform into rain You had and lost the one thing You kept in a safe place Remember the face Of the girl who had made you her own And how you left her alone Life goes to those that are true The regular news Over playing the blues With the light on And if you burn the road That'll lead you back to her in time I watch you turn to stone You can't find the sunlight She's moving on without you The tide breaks You watch the stars fade They gather you back to their home I guess it's better than being alone

A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall

JIMMY CLIFF
Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son? And where have you been my darling young one? I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall. Oh, what did you see, my blue eyed son? And what did you see, my darling young one? I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin' I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin' I saw a white ladder all covered with water I saw ten thousand takers whose tongues were all broken I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall. And what did you hear, my blue-eyed son? And what did you hear, my darling young one? I heard the sound of a thunder, it roared out a warnin' I heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world I heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a-blazin' I heard ten thousand whisperin' and nobody listenin' I heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin' Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall. Oh, who did you meet my blue-eyed son? Who did you meet, my darling young one? I met a young child beside a dead pony I met a white man who walked a black dog I met a young woman whose body was burning I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow I met one man who was wounded in love I met another man who was wounded and hatred And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall. And what'll you do now, my blue-eyed son? And what'll you do now my darling young one? I'm a-goin' back out 'fore the rain starts a-fallin' I'll walk to the deepths of the deepest black forest Where the people are a many and their hands are all empty Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison Where the executioner's face is always well hidden Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten Where black is the color, where none is the number And I'll tell and think it and speak it and breathe it And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it Then I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin' But I'll know my songs well before I start singin' And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.
