Some random lyrics from 14 songs that I have been listening to lately…
(And, I didn’t include the artist’s name on purpose. Can you name them?)
Many men with lofty aims, Strive for lofty goals, Others play at smaller games, Being simpler souls. I am of the latter brand; All I want to do, Is to find a spot of land, And live there with you. Someday we’ll build a home on a hilltop high, You and I, Shiny and new a cottage that two can fill. And we’ll be pleased to be called, “The folks who live on the hill”.
Rise up this mornin’, Smiled with the risin’ sun, Three little birds Pitch by my doorstep Singin’ sweet songs Of melodies pure and true, Sayin’, (“This is my message to you-ou-ou:”) Singin’: “Don’t worry ’bout a thing, ‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right.” Singin’: “Don’t worry (don’t worry) ’bout a thing, ‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right!”
But you cant stop nothing
If you got no control
Of the thoughts in your mind
That you kept in, you know
You don’t know nothing
But you don’t need to know
The wisdom’s in the trees
Not the glass windows
You cant stop wishing
If you don’t let go
But things that you find
And you lose, and you know
You keep on rolling
Put the moment on hold
The frames too bright
So put the blinds down low
if you don’t slow down, what’s the point of winning
if you can’t let go, you just keep on spinnin, spinnin, spinnin round
To do more than just get by.
I’ve come to test the timber of my heart
Oh, I’ve come to test the timber of my heart
And I’ve come to be untroubled in my seeking
And I’ve come to see that nothing is for naught
I’ve come to reach out blind
to reach forward and behind
For the more I seek the more I’m sought
Yea, the more I seek the more I’m sought.
Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?
Well, I’ve been afraid of changin’
‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
But time makes bolder, children get older
I’m getting older too, well
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way…
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun…
Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Who do you want to be today?
Who do you want to be?
Who do you want to be today?
Do you want to be just like someone on T.V.?
Love is the answer, At least for most of the questions in my heart
Like why are we here? And where do we go? And how come it’s so hard?
It’s not always easy and Sometimes life can be deceiving
I’ll tell you one thing it’s always better when we’re together
We’re all the same underneath our shell
We’ve all been to hell and we know what it’s like
And we’ve shared each other’s sins
We all know what it’s like to give up the fight
We’ve all been ashamed at one time or another
We all have dreams and nightmares too
When it all comes down we’ll look out for each other
(No one else will)
But when I hear the call when I feel the thirst
When the catcher comes to take my soul
He’s gonna have to fight me first
You know the good ole days weren’t always good
And tomorrow ain’t as bad as it seems
Seems like everywhere I go
The more I see the less I know
But I know one thing that I love you
Leave me whole and leave my soul
Leave me nothing I don’t need at all
Nothing I don’t need at all
Got the kid and the pretty wife, got the boss and there’s your life
Take a breathe before you dive, take a breathe before you die
There’s a name on the dotted line, There’s a name on the dotted line
Take a breathe before you bite, take a breathe before you buy
