    WE DON'T NEED ANOTHER HERO--TINA TURNER

    OUT OF THE RUINS
    OUT FROM THE WRECKAGE
    CAN`T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE THIS TIME
    WE ARE THE CHILDREN
    THE LAST GENERATION
    WE ARE THE ONES THEY LEFT BEHIND
    AND I WONDER WHEN WE ARE EVER GONNA CHANGE
    LIVING UNDER THE FEAR, TILL NOTHING ELSE REMAINS

    WE DON`T NEED ANOTHER HERO
    WE DON`T NEED TO KNOW THE WAY HOME
    ALL WE WANT IS LIFE BEYOND
    THUNDERDOME

    LOOKING FOR SOMETHING
    WE CAN RELY ON
    THERE`S GOTTA BE SOMETHING BETTER OUT THERE
    LOVE AND COMPASSION
    THEIR DAY IS COMING
    ALL ELSE ARE CASTLES BUILT IN THE AIR
    AND I WONDER WHEN WE ARE EVER GONNA CHANGE
    LIVING UNDER THE FEAR TILL NOTHING ELSE REMAINS

    ALL THE CHILDREN SAY
    WE DON`T NEED ANOTHER HERO
    WE DON`T NEED TO KNOW THE WAY HOME
    ALL WE WANT IS LIFE BEYOND
    THUNDERDOME

    SO WHAT DO WE DO WITH OUR LIFES
    WE LEAVE ONLY A MARK
    WILL OUR STORY SHINE LIKE A LIGHT
    OR END IN THE DARK
    GIVE IT ALL OR NOTHING

    WE DON`T NEED ANOTHER HERO
    WE DON`T NEED TO KNOW THE WAY HOME
    ALL WE WANT IS LIFE BEYOND
    THUNDERDOME


    I love tina turner

      Hello, darkness, my old friend.
      I've come to talk to you again,
      because of visions softly creeping,
      left it's seeds while I was sleeping,
      and the vision that was planted in my brain,
      still remains, within the sounds of silence.
      In my dream I walked alone,
      narrow streets of cobblestone.
      Beneath the halo of a street lamp,
      I turned my collar to the cold and damp,
      when my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light,
      that split the night and touched the sounds of silence.
      In the naked light I saw,
      ten thousand people,
      maybe more.
      People talking without speaking,
      people hearing without listening,
      people writing songs that voices never share.
      No one dared,
      disturb the sounds of silence.
      "Fools!" Said I,
      you do not know,
      silence ,like a cancer, grows.
      "Hear my words, that I might teach you.
      Take my arm, that I might reach you!"
      But my words, like silent raindrops fell,
      into the wells of silence.
      And the people bowed and prayed,
      to that neon god they made,
      and the sign said:
      The words of your prophets are written on your subway walls and tenement halls,
      and whispered in the sound of silence.

      Paul Simon:Words and music
      Art Garfunkel:Vocals
      Still a heavy song, and still pertinent.

    For whom the bell tolls - Metallica

    Make his fight on the hills in the early day
    Constant chill deep inside
    Shouting gun on they run through the endless gray
    On they fight for their right, yes, but who's to say?

    For a hill, men would kill, why? They do not know
    [Incomprehensible] wounds test their pride
    Men of five, still alive through the raging glow
    Gone insane from the pain and they surely know

    For whom the bell tolls
    Time marches on
    For whom the bell tolls

    Take a look to the sky just before you die
    It is the last time he will
    Blackened roar, massive roar fills the crumbling sky
    Shattered goal fills his soul with a ruthless cry

    Stranger now are his eyes to this mystery
    He hears the silence so loud
    Crack of dawn, all is gone except the will to be
    Now they see what will be blinded eyes to see

    For whom the bell tolls
    Time marches on
    For whom the bell tolls

    Uprising Lyrics
    Artist(Band):Muse

    The paranoia is in bloom, the PR
    The transmissions will resume
    They'll try to push drugs
    Keep us all dumbed down and hope that
    We will never see the truth around
    (So come on!)

    Another promise, another scene, another
    A package not to keep us trapped in greed
    With all the green belts wrapped around our minds
    And endless red tape to keep the truth confined
    (So come on!)

    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They will not control us
    We will be victorious

    Interchanging mind control
    Come let the revolution take its toll if you could
    Flick the switch and open your third eye, you'd see that
    We should never be afraid to die
    (So come on!)

    Rise up and take the power back, it's time that
    The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that
    Their time is coming to an end
    We have to unify and watch our flag ascend

    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They will not control us
    We will be victorious

    Hey .. hey ... hey .. hey!

    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They will not control us
    We will be victorious

    Hey .. hey ... hey .. hey!

    Talk to me
    Tell me your name
    You blow me off like it's all the same
    You lit a fuse and now I'm ticking away
    Like a bomb
    Yeah, Baby

    Talk to me
    Tell me your sign
    You're switching sides like a Gemini
    You're playing games and now you're hittin' my
    heart
    Like a drum
    Yeah, Baby

    Well if Lady Luck gets on my side
    We're gonna rock this town alive
    I'll let her rough me up
    Till she knocks me out
    She walks like she talks,
    And she talks like she walks

    And she bangs, she bangs
    Oh baby
    When she moves, she moves
    I go crazy
    'Cause she looks like a flower but she stings
    like a bee
    Like every girl in history
    She bangs, she bangs

    I'm wasted by the way she moves
    No one ever looked so fine
    She reminds me that a woman only got one thing on her mind

    Talk to me
    Tell me your name
    I'm just a link in your daisy chain
    Your rap sounds like a diamond
    Map to the stars
    Yeah, Baby

    Talk to me
    Tell me the news
    You wear me out like a pair of shoes
    We'll dance until the band goes home
    Then you're gone
    Yeah, Baby

    Well if it looks like love should be a crime
    You'd better lock me up for life
    I'll do the time with a smile on my face
    Thinking of her in her leather and lace

    Well if Lady Luck gets on my side
    We're gonna rock this town alive
    I'll let her rough me up
    Till she knocks me out
    She walks like she talks,
    And she talks like she walks

    If i can dream - Elvis Presley

    There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
    Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
    If I can dream of a better land
    Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
    Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true
    Oh why

    There must be peace and understanding sometime
    Strong winds of promise that will blow away
    the doubt and fear
    If I can dream of a warmer sun
    Where hope keeps shining on everyone
    Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun appear

    We're lost in a cloud
    With too much rain
    We're trapped in a world
    That's troubled with pain
    But as long as a man
    Has the strength to dream
    He can redeem his soul and fly

    Deep in my heart there's a tremblin' question
    Still I am sure that the answer, answer's gonna come somehow
    Out there in the dark, there's a beckoning candle, yeah
    And while I can think, while I can talk
    While I can stand, while I can walk
    While I can dream, please let my dream
    Come true......right now

    Leonard Cohen - The Partisan

    "The Partisan"

    When they poured across the border
    I was cautioned to surrender,
    this I could not do;
    I took my gun and vanished.
    I have changed my name so often,
    I've lost my wife and children
    but I have many friends,
    and some of them are with me.

    An old woman gave us shelter,
    kept us hidden in the garret,
    then the soldiers came;
    she died without a whisper.

    There were three of us this morning
    I'm the only one this evening
    but I must go on;
    the frontiers are my prison.

    Oh, the wind, the wind is blowing,
    through the graves the wind is blowing,
    freedom soon will come;
    then we'll come from the shadows.

    Les Allemands e'taient chez moi, (The Germans were at my home)
    ils me dirent, "Signe toi," (They said, "Sign yourself,")
    mais je n'ai pas peur; (But I am not afraid)
    j'ai repris mon arme. (I have retaken my weapon.)

    J'ai change' cent fois de nom, (I have changed names a hundred times)
    j'ai perdu femme et enfants (I have lost wife and children)
    mais j'ai tant d'amis; (But I have so many friends)
    j'ai la France entie`re. (I have all of France)

    Un vieil homme dans un grenier (An old man, in an attic)
    pour la nuit nous a cache', (Hid us for the night)
    les Allemands l'ont pris; (The Germans captured him)
    il est mort sans surprise. (He died without surprise.)

    Oh, the wind, the wind is blowing,
    through the graves the wind is blowing,
    freedom soon will come;
    then we'll come from the shadows.

    How're you ever gonna know? - Garth Brooks

    That old wind thats whipping out there
    it's whistleing your tune.
    That wind blew pyramids to Egypt
    and footprints to the moon.

    That old star that you've been wishing on
    it's shining mighty bright.
    It's the fire inside your heart
    that's gonna lead you to the light.

    How you ever gonna know
    what it's like to live there?
    How you ever gonna know
    victory?
    How you ever gonna know
    what it's like when dreams become reality?
    How you ever gonna know
    how it feels to hold her?
    How you ever gonna know
    what it's like to dance?

    If you never take the chance.

    You know failure is't failure
    if a lesson from it's learned.
    I guess love would not be love
    whithout a chance of being burned.
    Anything in life worth having
    Lord it has it's sacrifice.
    But the gift that your recieving
    is worth more than the price.

    How you ever gonna know
    what it's like to live there?
    How you ever gonna know
    what you never knew?
    How you ever gonna know
    if your down here doing what the good lord put you here to do?
    How you ever gonna know
    if you could've done it?
    How you ever gonna know
    how it feels to fly?
    How you ever gonna know
    If you never dare to try.

    Listen not to the critics
    who put their own dreams on the shelf.
    If you want get the truth to admit it
    you gotta find out for yourself.

    How you ever gonna know
    what it's like to be there?
    How you ever gonna know
    if your the best?
    How you ever gonna know
    what you believe in if you don't put it to the test?
    How you ever gonna know
    How it feels to hold him?
    How you ever gonna know
    what living is?

    If you never chase the dream.

    Last Request by Paolo Nutini


    Slow down, Lie down,
    Remember it's just you and me.
    Don't sell out, bow out,
    Remember how this used to be.

    I just want you closer,
    Is that alright?
    Baby let's get closer tonight

    Grant my last request,
    And just let me hold you.
    Don't shrug your shoulders,
    Lay down beside me.
    Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere,
    But one last time let's go there,
    Lay down beside me

    Oh, I've found, that I'm bound
    To wander down that one way road.
    And I realise all about your lies
    But I'm no wiser than the fool I was before.

    I just want you closer,
    Is that alright?
    Baby let's get closer tonight


    Oh, baby, baby, baby,
    Tell me how can, how can this be wrong?


    Yeah, lay down beside me.

    One last time let's go there,
    Lay down beside me

    "purple" by Skin

    Purple washes over me
    Seeping through my open seams
    I'm stained all over

    You pretend we've started again
    Waiting for me to say when
    But I say purple

    [Chorus]
    She won't go
    Where I
    I would go for you
    I'd curse my heart

    For you

    Silence makes a girl talk fast
    Speeding but I'm gonna crash
    And burn for love's sake

    Duty keeps a lover loyal
    (But) is it really worth the spoils
    When I dream purple

    This is probably the very first Leonard Cohen song (or else it was Suzanne) I ever heard - he has written so many wonderful lyrics!

    Bird On The Wire - Leonard Cohen

    like a bird on the wire
    like a drunk in a midnight choir
    I have tried in my way to be free
    like a worm on the hook
    like a knight from some old-fashiond book
    I have saved all my ribbons for thee

    and if I have been unkind
    I hope that you will just let it go by
    and if I have been untrue
    I hope you know it was never to you

    like a babe stillborn
    like a beast with his horn
    I have torn everyone who reached out for me
    but I swear by this song
    and by all that I have done wrong
    I will make it all up to thee

    I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
    he said to me "you must not ask for so much"
    and the pretty woman leaning in her darkened door
    she cried to me "hey, why not ask for more?"

    like a bird on the wire
    like a drunk in a midnight choir
    I have tried in my way to be free

    The great hit by "The Ink Spots"

         If I Didn't Care


    If I didn't care more than words can say
    If I didn't care would I feel this way?
    If this isn't love then why do I thrill?
    And what makes my head go 'round and 'round
    While my heart stands still?

    If I didn't care would it be the same?
    Would my ev'ry prayer begin and end with just your name?
    And would I be sure that this is love beyond compare?
    Would all this be true if I didn't care for you?

    MONOLOGUE: If I didn't care honey child, mo' than words can say. If I didn't
    care baby, would I feel this way? Darlin' if this isn�t love, then why do I thrill so
    much? What is it that makes my head go 'round and 'round while my heart just stands
    still so much ?

    If I didn't care would it be the same?
    Would my ev'ry prayer begin and end with just your name?
    And would I be sure that this is love beyond compare?
    Would all this be true if I didn't care for you?
