Songs

Tucson, Arizona
Rising in the heat like a mirage
Tony keeps his Chevy
Like a virgin locked in his garage

He brings it out at midnight
And cruises down the empty boulevards
And he prowls the darkened alleys
That snake between the city's thirsty yards

The lonely desert skies reflect
The anger in his eyes and it is dawn

His father died of drinking
And left five children sinking with his mom
His older brother Bobby
Never made it back from Vietnam

With high school well behind him
He lives at home and works this shitty job

And he thinks his '60 Chevy
Is the only true amigo that he's got
His heart is filled with sadness
And his soul is like some ugly vacant lot

Mary Estelle Hanna
Came out from Louisiana for the sun
A deal gone bad in Dallas
Left her burned and broke and on the run

To make the rent and groceries
She takes this job at dollar 3.15 an hour
Serving shots of whiskey and tequila
In some smoky red neck bar

And she dreams some day
She'll make her way to L.A and become a movie star

Tony saw her working
He swallowed hard and asked her for a date
Mary laughed and answered
"I would but every night I'm working late"

He said he had some cocaine
That she could have if she'd just ride along
She said, "What the hell, I may a well
I haven't had no fun in so damn long"

He picked her up at closing time
They pulled out on the road and they were gone

Tony's mom got frantic
When she found her son had not come home
Mary's roommate panicked
And called the sheriff from a public phone

They asked her lots of questions
She tried her best to tell them what she saw
And late that night they found poor Mary
Lying in some narrow, dusty draw

And the coroner reported
That she hadn't been deceased for very long

Two weeks on they found it
Buried to the windshield in the sand
There inside lay Tony
With a small revolver in his hand

The papers simply stated
It must have been the drugs that drove him mad
The neighbors speculated
What could make a good boy go so bad?

Well, it might have been the desert heat
It might have been the home he never had

I was gone away so long, long enough to lose myself.
Past away out in the wild and i could hear the voices sing.
On the edge of my insanity i'm getting high on fighting perfect clearity.
But the voices that i hear are just a part of me.
I found my through,
I found my through.
Nothing to proof, nothing to lose.
I was way down by little things, holding on to broken change.
Couldnt breath i was letting go.
Then suddenly the angels sing.
 On the edge of my insanity.
I'm getting high on fighting perfect clearity.
But the voices that i hear are just a part of me.
I found my through,
I found my through. Nothing to proof, nothing to lose.
If I forget once again, what i had forgotten. Im gonna get it back.
If I forget once again, what i had forgotten. Im gonna get it back.
If I forget once again, what i had forgotten. Im gonna get it back back back back back.
I found my throught,
I found my through. Nothing to proof, nothing to lose. I found my through,
I found my through. Nothing to proof, nothing to lose.

dont let it pass

I learned about this song in the movie The secret life of Walter Mitty and I feel connected to this song. 

Dont let life pass

What's in your hand
You're pinned down to routines
Elevate and leave
The flickering screen

Where nothing is compromised
Nothing is lost
When everything is realized
Nothing is crossed

But don't let it pass
Don't get locked in
Everything starts
Way from within

Where nothing is compromised
Nothing is lost
When everything is realised
Nothing is crossed

Dido -
White Flag

Love this song. Sad really, the meaning of the song

I know you think that I shouldn't still love you,
Or tell you that.
But if I didn't say it, well I'd still have felt it
Where's the sense in that?

I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder
Or return to where we were

But I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

I know I left too much mess and destruction
To come back again
And I caused nothing but trouble
I understand if you can't talk to me again

And if you live by the rules of "it's over"
Then I'm sure that that makes sense

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

And when we meet
Which I'm sure we will
All that was there
Will be there still
I'll let it pass
And hold my tongue
And you will think
That I've moved on....

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

Jim Byrnes - Just a Pilgrim

http://www.jamestbyrnes.com/

 Wonderful man, known as watcher from the Highlander series. He played music too in his bar

This road to the harbor is all that I know
I'm here at the crossroads, which way do I go?
I've been lost, sometimes found

Down this road, that's where I'm bound
With all of the others, we all travel alone

I'm just a pilgrim on the side of the road
Yes, Lord, I'm a pilgrim on the side of the road

This road to the harbor is paved with our tears
I've been out here walking for what seem like long years
I wonder, how can this be, that they all feel like me?
All of these others, though we travel alone

I'm just a pilgrim on the side of the road
Yeah, Lord, I'm a pilgrim on the side of the road

Please don't let me find that I've been left behind
Hope I will reach the end before dark night closes in

This road to the harbor out here under the sun
I'm tired, Lord, I am weary, my race halfway run
But I must, I will soldier on, even when hope is all gone
All of the others, we have to travel alone

I'm just a pilgrim on the side of the road
Yeah, Lord, I'm a pilgrim standing at the side of the road
Yeah, sometime I, sometime I, sometime I need help on my journey
I'm just a pilgrim on the side of the road

Love this song. Love her voice.

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow
One step closer

I have died every day
Waiting for you
Darlin' don't be afraid
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What's standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this
One step closer

I have died every day
Waiting for you
Darlin' don't be afraid
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

All along
I believed
I would find you
Time has brought
Your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand moooore

One step closer
One step closer
I have died every day
Waiting for you
Darlin' don't be afraid
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand moooore

All along
I believed
I would find you
Time has brought
Your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

You think I'd leave your side baby
You know me better than that
You think I'd leave you down when you're down on your knees
I wouldn't do that

I'll tell you you're right when you want
And if only you could see into me

Oh when you're cold, I'll be there
Hold you tight to me

When you're on the outside baby and you can't get in
I will show you, you're so much better than you know
When you're lost and you're alone and you can't get back again
I will find you, darling and I will bring you home

And if you want to cry
I am here to dry your eyes
And in no time, you'll be fine

You think I'd leave your side baby
You know me better than that
You think I'd leave you down when you're down on your knees
I wouldn't do that

I'll tell you you're right when you want
And if only you could see into me

Oh when you're cold, I'll be there
Hold you tight to me
Oh when you're low
I'll be there by your side baby

Oh when you're cold, I'll be there
Hold you tight to me
Oh when you're low
I'll be there by your side baby

A magical voice. Songs straight into the heart

Mary Black - Song For Ireland

Walking all the day
Near tall towers where falcons build their nests
Siver winged they fly
They know the call of freedom in their breasts
Saw Black Head against the sky
With twisted rocks that run down to the sea

Living on your western shore
Saw summer sunsets, asked for more
I stood by your Atlantic sea
And sang a song for Ireland

Talking all the day
With true friends who try to make you stay
Telling jokes and news
Singing songs to pass the night away
Watched the Galway salmon run
Like silver dancing, darting in the sun

Living on your western shore
Saw summer sunsets, asked for more
I stood by your Atlantic sea
And sang a song for Ireland

Drinking all the day
In old pubs where fiddlers loved to play
Someone touched the bow
He played a reel, it seemed so grand and gay
Stood on Dingle beach
And cast in wild foam, we found Atlantic bass

Living on your western shore
Saw summer sunsets, asked for more
I stood by your Atlantic sea
And sang a song for Ireland

Dreaming in the night
I saw a land where no man had to fight
Waking in your dawn
I saw you crying in the morning light
Lying where the falcons fly
They twist and turn all in you e'er blue sky

Living on your western shore
Saw summer sunsets, asked for more
I stood by your Atlantic sea
And sang a song for Ireland

"Fear And Loathing"

I've lived a lot of different lives
Been different people many times
I live my life in bitterness
And fill my heart with emptiness

And now I see, I see it for the first time,
There is no crime in being kind
Not everyone is out to screw you over.
Maybe, oh just maybe they just wanna get to know ya.

Now the time is here,
Baby you don't have to live your life in fear
And the sky is clear, is clear of fear

Don't wanna live in fear and loathing
I wanna feel like I am floating
Instead of constantly exploding
In fear and loathing

Got different people inside my head
I wonder which one that they like best
I'm done with tryin' to have it all
And endin' up with not much at all.

And now the time is here,
Baby you don't have to live your life in fear
And the sky is clear, is clear of fear
Of fear

Don't wanna live in fear and loathing
I wanna feel like I am floating
Instead of constantly exploding
In fear and loathing.

And when the time comes along
And the lights run out,
I know where I will belong
When they blow me out.

Don't wanna live in fear and loathing
I wanna feel like I am floating
Instead of constantly exploding
In fear and loathing.

I wanna be completely weightless
I wanna touch the edge of greatness
Don't wanna be completely faithless
Completely faithless.

When the time comes around
When the lights will go out
When the time comes around
When the lights they go out.

Katey Segal

My old man
Iím a chip off the old block
My old man
Is still living here
Not in flesh and bone, heís never far from home
Iím forever walkin' in my daddyís shoes
Iíve got his misery, I got good company
Guess Iíll always be
My daddyís girl

My momma sang
Call it inspiration
And sheís comin' on through me
I can feel her now
Though she walks on the other side
To me sheís still quite alive
Iím forever rockin' in my mommas arms
Mom had a broken heart
From a world just too damn hard
Mine breaks often cause Iím a mommaís girl

You spend a lifetime saying this is who I am
Then you find yourself saying something
You donít understand, you look in the mirror
There you are
Your daddyís girl

A great singer and a great actress.  Glad I found her again!

Bonnie ST Clair- I wont stand between them. A dutch singer who is now an alcoholic. Pity she had a good voice.
This is her in 1970
I let him go, though I know
That my heart is screaming 'no'
Anyway, it's better so
I won't stand between them

But it's alright, I step aside
Let his arms now hold her tight
I'll be strong, my tears I hide
I won't stand between them

Someday he'll wonder
Have I done right?
I hope he'll come
Any day or night

I must be wise, I saw his eyes
Watching her, she's looking so nice
And my heard is cold as ice
I won't stand between them

I let him go, though I know
That my heart is screaming 'no'
Anyway, it's better so
I won't stand, no, I won't stand

I won't stand between them!

It's alright, I'll step aside
Let his arms now hold her tight


Ashford & Simpson
solid
solid as a rock
a smile for the song from the past. I so like to hear this one

Solid, solid as a rock
That's what this love is
That's what we've got

Solid
Solid as a rock
And nothing's changed it
The thrill is still
Hot, hot, hot, hot, hot, hot

You didn't turn away
When the sky went gray
Somehow we managed
We had to stay together

You didn't bat an eye
When I made you cry
We knew down the line
We could make it better

And for love's sake
Each mistake you forgave
And soon both of us
Learn to trust

Not run away
It was no time to play
We build it up
Build it up
Build it up

And now it's solid
Solid as a rock
That's what this love is
That's what we've got

Solid, solid as a rock
And nothing's changed it
The thrill is still
Hot, hot, hot, hot, hot, hot

Gone with the wind
Another friend got in between
And tried to separate us
Knock knock on wood
You understood
Love was so new
We did what we had to

And with that feeling
We were willing to take a chance
So against all odds
We made a start
We got serious
This wouldn't turn to dust
We build it up
Build it up

He made great music and videoclips. I selected some of my favorites here. 

Kim Richie A place called home

A great heartsong I so like and it touches me inside. I feel a bit like the text and the music.

http://www.kimrichey.com/

It's not hard to see anyone who looks at me
Knows I am just a rolling stone
Never landed any place to call my own
To call my own

Well it seems like so long ago
But it really ain't you know, I started off a crazy kid
Miracle I made it though the things I did
The things I did

Some day I'll go where there ain't no rain or snow
Till then I'll travel alone
And I'll make my bed with the stars above my head
And dream of a place called home

I had a chance to settle down, get a job and live in town
Work in some old factory
I never liked the foreman standing over me
Over me

No I rather walk a windy road, rather know the things I know
See the world with my own eye
No regrets, no looking back, no good byes
No good byes

Some day I'll go where there ain't no rain or snow
Till then I'll travel alone
And I'll make my bed with the stars above my head
And dream of a place called home

Na na na na na ah na
Ah na na na na na

And some day I'll go where there ain't no rain nor snow
Till then I'll travel alone
And I make my bed with the stars above my head
And dream of a place called home

Some day I'll go where there ain't no rain nor snow
Dream of a place called home

Through the barricades

Mother doesn't know where love has gone
She says it must be youth that keeps us feeling strong
I see it in her face that's turned to ice
And when she smiles she shows the lines of sacrifice
And now I know what they're saying
As our sun begins to fade
And we made our love on wasteland
And through the barricades
Father made my history
He fought for what he thought would set us somehow free
He taught me what to say in school
I learned it off by heart but now that's torn in two
And now I know what they're saying
In the music of the parade
And we made our love on wasteland
And through the barricades
Born on different sides of life
But we fear the same and feel all of this strife
So come to me when I'm asleep
We'll cross the lines and dance upon the streets

Love the song and the ending of the song.

When the world stops running
and looks me in the eye
and starts to answer all my questions why
when God is patient and so am I
I'll be happy

When life goes simply from a to b
and the pearly white flags are flowing free
hope not blood is the story that leads
I'll be happy

When my teeth stop hurting
and my bird stops hissing
and my doubts go missing I'll be free
ooh, ooh I'll be happy

When my teeth stop hurting
and my bird stops hissing
and my doubts go missing I'll be free
ooh, ooh I'll be happy

When then is now
when then is now
when then is now
when then is now

When our children's tears are not black stains
and our brothers and sisters don't die in vain
when our mothers are free to breathe again
I'll be happy

When we breathe in love and not bad air
when we call you friend anywhere
when our politicians really to start to care
I'll be happy

When my teeth stop hurting
and my bird stops hissing
and my doubts go missing I'll be free
ooh, ooh, I'll be happy

When my teeth stop hurting
and my bird stops hissing
and my doubts go missing I'll be free
ooh, ooh, I'll be happy

When then is now
when then is now
when then is now
when then is now

When our minds expand
for more than one right
when we speak the words
that'll stop the fight
when we all stop and look inside
I'll be happy

When the father forgives
by the dying daughters side
when there's no such thing
as youth suicide
when we're all high on the joy of life
I'll be happy

When my teeth stop hurting
and my bird stops hissing
and my doubts go missing I'll be free
ooh, ooh I'll be happy

When my teeth stop hurting
and my bird stops hissing
and my doubts go missing I'll be free
ooh, ooh I'll be happy

When then is now
