Couldn't find a thread for lyrics (I have to admit I didn't look very hard) - If there is one will someone please merge sunny

Sheryl Crow's "Every day is a winding road"

I hitched a ride with a vending machine repair man
He says he's been down this road more than twice
He was high on intellectualism
I've never been there but the brochure looks nice
Jump in, let's go
Lay back, enjoy the show
Everybody gets high, everybody gets low,
These are the days when anything goes
Everyday is a winding road
I get a little bit closer
Everyday is a faded sign
I get a little bit closer to feeling fine

He's got a daughter he calls Easter
She was born on a Tuesday night
I'm just wondering why I feel so all alone
Why I'm a stranger in my own life
Jump in, let's go
Lay back, enjoy the show
Everybody gets high, everybody gets low
These are the days when anything goes

Everyday is a winding road
I get a little bit closer
Everyday is a faded sign
I get a little bit closer to feeling fine

I've been living in a sea of anarchy
I've been living on coffee and nicotine
I've been wondering if all the thing I've seen
Were ever real, were ever really happening

Everyday is a winding road
I get a little bit closer
Everyday is a faded sign
I get a little bit closer to feeling fine

Yoko Kanno - Call Me Call Me

I close my eyes and I keep seeing things
Rainbow waterfalls
Sunny liquid dreams
Confusion creeps inside me raining doubt
Gotta get to you
But I don't know how
Call me call me
Let me know it's alright
Call me call me
Don't you think it's 'bout time
Please won't you call and
Ease my mind
Reasons for me to find you
Peace of mind
What can I do
To get me to you

I had your number quite some time ago
Back when we were young
But I had to grow
Ten thousand years I've searched it seems and now
Gotta get to you
Won't you tell me how
Call me call me
Let me know you are there
Call me call me
I wanna know you still care
Come on now won't you
Ease my mind
Reasons for me to find you
Peace of mind
What can I do
To get me to you
Come on now won't you
Ease my mind
Reasons for me to find you
Peace of mind
Reasons for livin my life
Ease my mind
Reasons for me to know you
Peace of mind
What can I do
To get me to you

Bad company - Feel like making Love

Baby, when I think about you , I think about love.
Darlin’, I don’t live without you and your love.
If I had those golden dreams of my yesterdays,
I would wrap you in the Heavens
Til I’m dyin on the way.

Feel like makin,
Feel like makin love,
Feel like makin love,
Feel like makin love,
Feel like makin love to you .

Baby, if I think about you, I think about love.
Darlin’ if I live without you, I live without love.
And If I had the sun and moon, and they were shining
I would give you both night and day,of satisfyin’.

Feel like makin,
Feel like makinlove,
Feel like makinlove
Feel like makinlove
Feel like makin love to you.

And if I had those golden dreams of my yesterdays,
I would wrap you in the heaven
Til I’m dyin on the way

Feel like makin
Feel like makin love,
Feel like makin love,
Feel like makin love,
Feel like makin’ love to you.

The Posies - I Guess You're Right

I guess you're right
And there's nothing I would say to you this time
You told me just what I had to live for
And there's no flight in my fight
And more than that it's so all right, it's so all right

If I meet more than your eye
I guess you're right
If I wake up in your mind
I guess you're right

I guess you're smart
Cause I'm taken by you taking me apart
I could best believe I died to live for
For the hour dictates the need and I am speaking like I'm spoken only for

If I meet more than your eye
I guess you're right
If I wake up in your mind
I guess you're right
If I sink into your sleep and make it deep
I guess you're right
If I never let you go I'll know you so and oh so right

If I meet more than your eye
I guess you're right
If I wake up in your mind
I guess you're right
Can I crawl around your bones and make my home
Would that be right?
If I never let you go I know you so
And you're so right

Take it as a sign
Take in every sound you hear, take every sigh
Take my desire, take it all, take it as proof
Take me in this life I've taken you

Pulp - Sorted for E's and Wizz

Oh is this the way they say the future's meant to feel?
Or just twenty thousand people standing in a field?
And I don't quite understand just what this feeling is
But that okay cos we're all sorted out for E's and Wizz
And tell me when the spaceship lands
Cos all this has just got to mean something

CHORUS
In the middle of the night
It feels alright but then tomorrow morning
Ohh Ohh when you come down

Oh yeah the pirate radio told us what was going down
Got the tickets from some f***ed up bloke in Camden Town
And no one seems to know exactly where it is
But that's okay, cos we're all sorted out for E's and Wizz
At 4 0'clock the normal world seems very very very far away
Hey hey

CHORUS

Just keep on moving
Everybody asks your name they say we're all the same
And now it's "Nice one, Geezer"-and that's as far the conversation went
I lost my friends, I dance aloned, it's 6 o'clock, I wanna go home
But it's no way not today, makes you wonder what it meant
And the hollow feeling grows and grows and grows and grows
And you wanna call your mother and say,
"Mother, I can never come home again because I seem to have left
an important part of my brain somewhere in a field in Hampshire."
Alright

CHORUS

Ooohh Oohh when you come down
Oohh what if you never come down?


Anyone who's ever been to a festival will attest that these lyrics sum up the festival feeling perfectly.

James - Laid

This bed is on fire
With passionate love
The neighbors complain about the noises above
But she only comes when she's on top

My therapist said not to see you no more
She said you're like a disease without any cure
She said I'm so obsessed that I've become a bore, oh no
Ah, you think you're so pretty

Caught your hand inside the till
Slammed your fingers in the door
Fought with kitchen knives and skewers
Dressed me up in women's clothes
Messed around with gender roles
Dye my eyes and call me pretty

Moved out of the house, so you moved next door
I locked you out, you cut a hole in the wall
I found you sleeping next to me, I thought I was alone
You're driving me crazy, when are you coming home

I Quite Like My Girlfriend's Hair

I quite like my girlfriend's hair
I think about it when she's not there
That it's not made from tupplewear
Oh I like my girlfriend's hair

But my girlfriend - she don't sound too good
She's from a Scouse neighbourhood
I'd slash her voicebox if I could
No, my girlfriend she don't sound too good

But I do adore my girlfriend's breasts
I use them both as a place to rest
Even though they're not from Budapest
I adore my girlfriend's breasts

Re: Lyrics I like

Post by The Co=Ordinator on Mon Mar 09, 2009 11:35 am

In amongst the, literally, hundreds of thousands of words I've written over the decades, there's only ever been one set of lyrics. These were for the end of Act One of my panto version of "Treasure Island", and were set to a reorchestrated version of Graham Kendrick's 'Rumours of Angels'.

Jim Hawkins has landed on Skeleton Island, but sinks into despair about the situation in which he finds himself. He turns to the audience and says:

And now by the looks of it, I’m marooned as well. Marooned? That’s the least of my worries, it’s more likely the pirates will find and kill us. The Hispaniola has probably already set sail back for England. Oh what on earth have I done? I wish I’d never found that map. All I ever wanted was to be able to look after Mum, Hetty and Rose, instead of which I’m facing an oncoming storm and will never see them again. (Cue music) How did things ever come to this…...?

Jim then sings the following heart-rending soliloquoy:

Why have I come here? What have I done?
Was I just foolish? Thinking it would be fun.
The world’s full of evil, that I should have known.
And now I just stand here, feeling oh so alone.

It was madness to come here and now I’m marooned,
Perhaps it was scurrilous greed.
There is danger around and it’s coming this way,
How on earth will I ever be freed?
How will I ever be free?

The storm is oncoming, the ship will be gone.
The pirates will kill me, as they planned all along.
Mother forgive me, Rose and Hetty please see.
I was searching for a future, that was not meant to be.

It was madness to come here and now I’m marooned,
Perhaps it was scurrilous greed.
There is danger around and it’s coming this way,
How on earth will I ever be freed?
How will I ever be free?
