You can post entire songs or only certain sections you like.

"Look around just people, can you hear their voice
Find the one who'll guide you to the limits of your choice.
But if you're in the eye of storm
Just think of the lonely dove
The experience of survival is the key
To the gravity of love"

Nice idea!

Is it a kind of dream,
Floating out on the tide,
Following the river of death downstream?
Oh, is it a dream?

There's a fog along the horizon,
A strange glow in the sky,
And nobody seems to know where you go,
And what does it mean?
Oh, is it a dream?

Bright eyes,
Burning like fire.
Bright eyes,
How can you close and fail?
How can the light that burned so brightly
Suddenly burn so pale?
Bright eyes.

Is it a kind of shadow,
Reaching into the night,
Wandering over the hills unseen,
Or is it a dream?

There's a high wind in the trees,
A cold sound in the air,
And nobody ever knows when you go,
And where do you start,
Oh, into the dark.

Bright eyes,
burning like fire.
Bright eyes,
how can you close and fail?
How can the light that burned so brightly
Suddenly burn so pale?
Bright eyes.

Bright eyes,
burning like fire.
Bright eyes,
how can you close and fail?
How can the light that burned so brightly
Suddenly burn so pale?
Bright eyes.

Simon And Garfunkel - Bright Eyes.

Cool song! :D

"There is a place I call my own
Where I can stand by the sea
And look beyond the things I've known
And dream that I might be free

Like a bird above the trees
Gliding gently on the breeze
I wish that all my life I'd be
Without a care and flying free

But life is not a distant sky
Without a cloud, without rain
And I can never hope that I
Can travel on without pain

Time goes swiftly on it's way
All too soon we've lost today
I cannot wait for skies of blue
Or dream so long
That life is through

...

Like that bird up in the sky, life has taught me how to fly

For now I know what I can be
And now my heart is flying free"

~ Flying Free, Jenna Lynn

The first verse from a new and very good lower Bavarian music group. Riegler Hias feat. d'Hundskrippln. The text is in the lower Bavarian language.

Sie kimmt aus der Stodt
und I hob dramt vo ihr
Es war scho sauspot
Auf oamei leit's bei da Tüa
Sie steht d'raus und bleckt,
ihr Builldog verreckt.
Sie sogt: "Geh zua, mogst mi ned rett'n?
Und mi mit deim Vario abschleppn, Baby?"

I bin bloss a gloana Bauer, Baby.
An Lanz mit a Frontlader-Schaufi, hätt i
Mogst ackern mit mir mit'nanda, nur I und Du, Woho-ohoho

Carbon Leaf: This is My Song

LINK!


My name is Luck, this is my song
 I happened by while you were gone.
 Well I apologize that I could not stay,
 But I hope good things swing your way.
 I know they will... here's your horseshoe,
 So best of luck to you!

 For the stable running brave,
 From the cradle to the grave.
 This is my day, this is my song.
 I am alive... what can go wrong?
 If we're on our way-oh, ok let me know,
 If we're on our way-oh, ok then, let's go

My name is Hope, Luck just ran out.
 He said he'd return, without a doubt.
 (ah, but don't you believe him!)
 Oh, I happen to have a message from Love,
 She told me she knows what you've been dreaming of!
 My name is Hope, this is my song,
 When things go wrong.

(chorus)

 Through the windswept countryside!
 Across the great divide!
 For the stable running brave,
 From the cradle to the grave.

 This is my day, this is my song.
 As long as I'm alive what can go wrong?
 If we're on our way-oh, ok let me know,
 If we're on our way-oh, ok then, let's go-oh...

Moment of Peace, Gregorian and Sarah Brightman:

"Come now, come by our side,
 Into a place where you can hide,
 We are the sunshine,
 Rest your Soul here,
 And you'll find,
 We are the energy,
 We give the world to thee,
 Hold up your heart now,
 We will ease pain from your brow.

 In a world without Angels,
 And destruction is near,
 You can come with us here.

When the people are strangers,
 We will rest here and be,
 In a moment of peace."

I'm so proud of myself, I've memorized a good bit of one of my favorite songs!

Lyrics
I thought of angels choking on their halos
Get them drunk on rosewater
See how dirty I can get them pulling out their fragile teeth
And clip their tiny wings

Anything you say can and will be held against you
So only say my name
It will be held against you
Anything you say can and will be held against you
So only say my name

If Heaven's grief brings Hell's reign (Most fun line to sing EVER because if the way it's sung.)
Then I'd trade all my tomorrows
For just one yesterday
(I know I'm bad news)
For just one yesterday
(I saved it all for you)

I want to teach you a lesson
In the worst kind of way
Still I'd trade all my tomorrows
For just one yesterday
(I know I'm bad news)
For just one yesterday
(I saved it all for you)

Letting people down is my thing baby
Find yourself a new gig
This town ain't big enough for two of us (These two lines are tricky little things, I don't know why I can't remember them half the time)
I don't have the right name
Or the right looks
But I have twice the heart (That's a really fun line to sing too)

Anything you say can and will be held you
So only say my name
It will be held against you
Anything you say can and will be held against you
So only say my name
(Name)

If Heaven's grief brings Hell's reign
Then I'd trade all my tomorrows
For just one yesterday
(I know I'm bad news)
For just one yesterday
(I saved it all for you)

I want to teach you a lesson
In the worst kind of way
Still I'd trade all my tomorrows
For just one yesterday
(I know I'm bad news)
For just one yesterday
(I saved it all for you)
For just one yesterday

If I spilled my guts
The world would never look at you the same way
And now I'm here to give you all my love
So I can watch you face as I take it all away

If Heaven's grief brings Hell's reign
Then I'd trade all my tomorrows
For just one yesterday
(I know I'm bad news)
For just one yesterday
(I saved it all for you)

I want to teach you a lesson
In the worst kind of way
Still I'd trade all my tomorrows
For just one yesterday
(I know I'm bad news)
For just one yesterday
(I saved it all for you)
For just one yesterday

On second thought. . . . I appears I knew a bit more than I thought I did.  :dandelion  :fiver

Good memorization, Crackers! :D

From Under the Lights, Cassio Monroe:

"To those I've called friends
To those I dont know
All the places we've been
Oh all the places we'll go

You see,

Every ending's the start of a beginning
Every defeat gets you closer to winning

Yeah, its all about perspective
Thats why my frowns are the reason that I'm grinning

How could I love the peaks
If I've never seen the valleys
Its like loving the streets
But not knowing 'bout the alleys

This life's not over
Haven't seen the finale
Theres eyes on your life
So at least try to make yours a pep rally"

Hello darkness my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain:
Still remains,
Within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
'Neath 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 sound of silence.

And 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
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence.

"Fools," said I, "You do not know.
Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you.
Take my arms that I might reach you."
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming.
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls,
and tenement halls,
and whispered in the sounds of silence."
"I don't know. Does anybody know?"
