PostSubject: My Song for Today   13th January 2010, 16:38

Usually I post "Stairway" in here cos well its Stairway, but I've decided to go for this one seeing as I'm still in mourning for David Tennant's 10th Doctor Sad This song is called (shockingly) Song For Ten and was first heard in the episode "The Christmas Invasion". It is sung here by Neil Hannon from The Divine Comedy. Video at the end Smile

Song For Ten
written by Murray Gold, performed by Neil Hannon


Well I woke up today
And the world was a restless place
It could have been that way for me

And I wandered around
And I thought of your face
That Christmas looking back at me

I wish today was just like every other day
'Cause today has been the best day
Everything I ever dreamed

And I started to walk
Pretty soon I will run
And I'll come running back to you

'Cause I followed my star
And that's what you are
I've had a merry time with you

I wish today was just like every other day
'Cause today has been the best day
Everything I ever dreamed

So have a good life
Do it for me
Make me so proud
Like you want me to be
Where ever you are
I'm thinking of you oceans apart
I want you to know

Well I woke up today and you're on the other side
Our time will never come again
But if you can still dream
Close your eyes it will seem
That you can see me now and then

I wish today was just like every other day
'Cause today has been the best day
Everything I ever dreamed

I wish today was just like every other day
'Cause today has been the best day
Everything I ever dreamed

PostSubject: Undisclosed Desires by MUSE   20th January 2010, 18:35

Muse
Undisclosed Desires - The official music video is at the end.
Written by: Matthew Bellamy


I know you’ve suffered
But I don’t want you to hide,
It’s cold and loveless,
I won’t let you be denied

Soothing,
I’ll make you feel pure,
Trust me,
You can be sure

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty is not just a mask,
I want to exorcise the demons from your past,
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

You trick your lovers,
That you’re wicked and divine,
You may be a sinner,
But your innocence is mine

Please me,
Show me how it’s done,
Tease me,
You are the one

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart,
I want to recognize your beauty is not just a mask,
I want to exorcise the demons from your past,
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

Please me,
Show me how it’s done,
Trust me,
You are the one

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart,
I want to recognize your beauty is not just a mask,
I want to exorcise the demons from your past,
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

In honour of the greatest experience of my life:

Go Go Go Joseph
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Tim Rice.


(Narrator)
Joseph's luck was really out
His spirit and his fortune low
Alone he sat, alone he thought
Of happy times he used to know

(First Man)
Hey dreamer, don't be so upset

(Second Man)
Hey Joseph, you're not beaten yet

(Narrator & Ensemble)
Go, go go Joseph you know what they say
Hang on now Joseph you'll make it some day
Don't give up Joseph fight till you drop
We've read the book and you come out on top

(Narrator)
Now into Joseph's prison cell
Were flung two very frightened men

(Baker & Butler)
We don't think that we will ever
See the light of day again
Hey Joseph, help us if you can
We've had dreams that we don't understand

(Narrator & Ensemble)
Both men were servants of Pharaoh the King
Both in the doghouse for doing their thing

(Narrator)
One was a baker, a cook in his prime
One was a butler, the Jeeves of his time

(Joseph)
Tell me of your dreams my friends
And I will tell you what they show
Though I cannot guarantee
To get it right, I'll have a go

(Narrator)
First the butler, trembling took the floor
Nervously he spoke of what he saw

(Butler)
There I was standing in front of a vine
I picked some grapes and I crushed them to wine
I gave some to Pharaoh who drank from ny cup
I tried to interpret but I had to give up

(Joseph)
You will soon be free, my friend
So do not worry any more
The king will let you out of here
You'll buttle as you did before

(Narrator)
Next the baker rose to tell his dream
Hoping it would have a similar theme

(Baker)
There I was standing with baskets of bread
High in the sky I saw birds overhead
Who flew to my baskets and ate every slice
Give me the message, like his would be nice

(Joseph)
Sad to say your dream is not
The kind of dream I'd like to get
Pharaoh has it in for you
Your execution date is set
Don't rely on all I said I saw
It's just that I have not been wrong before

(Ensemble)
Go, go, go Joseph you know what they say
Hang on now Joseph you'll make it some day
Sha la la Joseph you're doing fine
You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time

Go, go, go Joseph you know what they say
Hang on now Joseph you'll make it some day
Sha la la Joseph you're doing fine
You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time

Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go
Joseph you know what they say
Hang on now Joseph you'll make it some day
Sha la la Joseph you're doing fine
You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time

Go, go, go, go, go, go, go Joseph you know what they say
Hang on now Joseph you'll make it some day
Sha la la Joseph you're doing fine
You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time

(Narrator)
Ahead of your time

(Joseph)
Ahead of my time

(Narrator)
Ahead of your time

(Joseph)
Ahead of my

(All)
Time


Go Go Go Joseph

Cos I know someone who does a great version of this song and who reminded me that it even exists!

Hall and Oates
Man Eater


She'll only come out at night
The lean and hungry type
Nothing is new, I've seen her here before
Watching and waiting
She's sitting with you but her eyes are on the door
So many have paid to see
What you think you're getting for free
The woman is wild, a she-cat tamed by the purr of a Jaguar
Money's the matter
If you're in it for love you ain't gonna get too far

Oh here she comes
Watch out boy she'll chew you up
Oh here she comes
She's a maneater
Oh here she comes
Watch out boy she'll chew you up
Oh here she comes
She's a maneater

I wouldn't if I were you
I know what she can do
She's deadly man, and she could really rip your world apart
Mind over matter
The beauty is there but a beast is in the heart

Oh here she comes
Watch out boy she'll chew you up
Oh here she comes
She's a maneater

Klavier - Rammstein
Lyrics translated to English (lyricsdownload.com)

They say to me
unlock this door
the curiosity becomes a scream
what could be behind it
behind this door
stands a piano
the keys are dusty
the strings are out of tune
behind this door
she sits at the piano
but she doesn't play anymore
oh, that was so long ago

There, at the piano
I listened to her
and if she began to play
I would hold my breath

She said to me
I'll always stay with you
but it only seemed
that she played for me alone
I poured her blood
in the fire of my rage
I locked the door
they asked for her

There, at the piano
I listened to her
and if she began to play
I would hold my breath
There, at the piano
I stood beside her
it seemed
she played for me alone

The door is open
I heard the mother plea
The father struck out at me
They tore her from her chair
No one believed me there
This is so insane
from sorrow and the stench

There, at the piano
I listened to her
and if she began to play
I would hold my breath
There, at the piano
she listened to me
and when I began to play
she held her breath

Nothing Compares To You
Written by Prince, Performed by Sinéad O'Connor


It's been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away
Since you been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing ...
I said nothing can take away these blues,
'Cause nothing compares ...
Nothing compares to you

It's been so lonely without you here
Like a bird without a song
Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
Tell me baby where did I go wrong?
I could put my arms around every boy I see
But they'd only remind me of you
went to the doctor guess what he told me
Guess what he told me?
He said, girl, you better try to have fun
No matter what you do
But he's a fool ...
'Cause nothing compares ...
Nothing compares to you ...

All the flowers that you planted, mama
In the back yard
All died when you went away
I know that living with you baby was sometimes hard
But I'm willing to give it another try
'Cause nothing compares ...
Nothing compares to you

Stupid Girls - P!nk
(I know this isn't a *deep* song, but right now it holds meaning for me. I just had someone close to me tell me that I'm not "normal" - the way I am isn't "healthy" because I don't go to bars and get drunk like all the other 20 something girls).

Stupid girl, stupid girls, stupid girls
Maybe if I act like that, that guy will call me back
Porno Paparazzi girl, I don't wanna be a stupid girl

Go to Fred Segal, you'll find them there
Laughing loud so all the little people stare
Looking for a daddy to pay for the champagne
(Drop a name)
What happened to the dreams of a girl president
She's dancing in the video next to 50 Cent
They travel in packs of two or three
With their itsy bitsy doggies and their teeny-weeny tees
Where, oh where, have the smart people gone?
Oh where, oh where could they be?

Maybe if I act like that, that guy will call me back
Porno Paparazzi girl, I don't wanna be a stupid girl
Baby if I act like that, flipping my blond hair back
Push up my bra like that, I don't wanna be a stupid girl

(Break it down now)
Disease's growing, it's epidemic
I'm scared that there ain't a cure
The world believes it and I'm going crazy
I cannot take any more
I'm so glad that I'll never fit in
That will never be me
Outcasts and girls with ambition
That's what I wanna see
Disasters all around
World despaired
Their only concern
Will they **** up my hair

Maybe if I act like that, that guy will call me back
Porno Paparazzi girl, I don't wanna be a stupid girl
Baby if I act like that, flipping my blond hair back
Push up my bra like that, I don't wanna be a stupid girl

[Interlude]
Oh my god you guys, I totally had more than 300 calories
That was so not sexy, no
Good one, can I borrow that?
[Vomits]
I WILL BE SKINNY

(Do ya thing, do ya thing, do ya thing)
(I like this, like this, like this)
Pretty will you **** me girl, silly as a lucky girl
Pull my head and suck it girl, stupid girl!
Pretty would you **** me girl, silly as a lucky girl
Pull my head and suck it girl, stupid girl!

Baby if I act like that, flipping my blond hair back
Push up my bra like that, stupid girl!

Maybe if I act like that, that guy will call me back
Porno Paparazzi girl, I don't wanna be a stupid girl
Baby if I act like that, flipping my blond hair back
Push up my bra like that, I don't wanna be a stupid girl

I think it would be considered deep if someone other than Pink had done it. She's basically one of the stupid girls that song is about. Heh. Would that be considered projection?

Matthew sings this to me when I'm feeling down and sings it occasionally at karaoke. I've added a youtube video, it's pretty cheesy but I didn't want to look forever for one that wasn't.


And I Love You So - Don McLean

And I love you so.
The people ask me how,
How I’ve lived till now.
I tell them I don’t know.

I guess they understand
How lonely life has been.
But life began again
The day you took my hand.

And, yes, I know how lonely life can be.
The shadows follow me, and the night won’t set me free.
But I don’t let the evening get me down
Now that you’re around me.


And you love me, too.
Your thoughts are just for me;
You set my spirit free.
I’m happy that you do.

The book of life is brief
And once a page is read,
All but love is dead.
That is my belief.

And, yes, I know how loveless life can be.
The shadows follow me, and the night won’t set me free.
But I don’t let the evening bring me down
Now that you’re around me.

And I love you so.
The people ask me how,
How I’ve lived till now.
I tell them, "I don’t know."

I love P!nk. She stands up for what she believes in. She doesn't let people push her around. She says what's on her mind and does whatever the hell she wants. The record label wanted her to be another Britney Spears and she refused. She's one of the only singers (recent) who can actually sing live!

Florence & The Machine
Cosmic Love

A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it's left me blind

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness,
So darkness I became

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

I took the stars from our eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart.

Chop and Change
By: The Black Keys


an innocent child in new orleans
a simple girl from simple means
walked the rails
rode her thumb
she hitched a ride with everyone

the regular, she'd rearrange
the girl knew how to chop and change
chop and change
chop and change
chop and change
chop and change

took a job workin late
jackin cars from out of state
she found no love in this town
so she'd never mess around
had no luck, but aint it strange
the girl knew how to chop and change
chop and change
chop and change
chop and change
chop and change

((Because no one has posted yet, I'm posting another one.))

Neutron Star Collision
By: Muse

I was searching
You were on a mission
Then our hearts combined like
A Neutron Star Collision

I had nothing left to lose
You took your time to choose
Then we told eachother with no trace of fear that

Our love would be forever
And if we died
We died together
And I
I said never
Cause our love would be forever

The world is broken
And halo's fail to glisten
We tried to make a difference but
No one wants to listen
Hail, the preachers fake and proud
Their doctrines will be cloud
Then they'll dissipate
Like snowflakes in an ocean

Love is forever
And we'll die
we'll die together
And I
I said never
Cause our love could be forever

Now, I've got nothing left to lose
You take your time to choose
I can tell you now without a trace of fear
That my love will be forever
And we'll die
we'll die together
And I
I will never
Cause our love
Will be forever

The Cranberries
Not Sorry


Keep on looking through the window again,

But I'm not sorry if I do insult you.
I'm sad, not sorry, 'bout the way that things went,
And you'll be happy and I'll be forsakin' thee.

I swore I'd never feel like this again,
But you're so selfish, you don't see
What you're doing to me,
I keep on looking through the window again.
No I'm not sorry if I do insult you.
No-o-o, I'm not sorry if I do insult you.

You told me lies, and I sighed, and I sighed, and I sighed.
'Cause you lied, lied, and I cried, yes I cried, yes, I cry, I cry, I try again.

I realize, as he sighed, and he sighed and he sighed.
'Cause you lied, lied, and I cried, yes I cried, yes, I cry, I cry, I try again.

Keep on looking through the window again,
But I'm not sorry if I do insult you.
I'm sad, not sorry, 'bout the way that things went,
And you'll be happy and I'll be forsakin' thee.

I swore I'd never feel like this again,
But you're so selfish,
You don't see what you're doing to me,
I keep on looking through the window again.
No I'm not sorry if I do detest you.
No-o-o, I'm not sorry if I do detest you.

You told me lies, and I sighed, and I sighed, and I sighed.
'Cause you lied, lied, and I cried, yes I cried, yes, I cry, I cry, I try again.

I realize, as he sighed, and he sighed and he sighed.
'Cause you lied, lied, and I cried, yes I cried, yes, I cry, I cry, I try again.

Keep on looking through the window again.
Keep on looking through the window again...

Humans Being
Van Halen

There is just enough Christ in me
To make me feel almost guilty
Is that why God made us bleed
To make us see we're Humans Being?

You break this, I'll break all that
You break my balls with all your crap
Spread your disease like lemmings breeding
That's what makes us Humans Being

Shine on, shine on
Shine on, shine on

(Guitar Solo)

Yeah! Some low life flat head scum infects
The sickness in his eyes reflects
You wonder why your life is screaming
Wonder why we're Humans Being

Shine on, shine on
Shine on, shine on

(Guitar Solo)

Humans, Humans Being
We're just Humans (That's what makes us)
Humans Being (That's what makes us)
We're just humans (That's what makes us)
Humans Being (That's what makes us) We're just humans (That's what makes us)
Humans Being (That's what makes us)
Humans Being!
We're just humans (That's what makes us)
Humans Being (That's what makes us)
Humans Being!

Never Tear Us Apart
By INXS


Don't ask me
What you know is true
Don't have to tell you
I love your precious heart

I..........I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never tear us apart

We could live for a thousand years
But if I hurt you
I'd make wine from your tears

I told you
That we could fly
Cause we all have wings
But some of us don't know why

I..........I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never...ever...tear us apart

I (don't ask me)
I was standing (You know it's true)
You were there (Worlds collided)
Two worlds collided (We're shining through)
And they could never tear us apart

You (don't ask me)
You were standing (You know it's true)
I was there (Worlds collided)
Two worlds collided (We're shining through)
And they could never tear us apart

Sometimes by People Watching

First things first
Shut the door behind
Let’s complicate the only thing that’s ever made sense
Cause after this year
I’ll be a person with a past
So sending me away is out of ignorance
Try to wait a while
Before stamping out the fire
Keep the cold around you so you want the warmth
That constitutes the need
Of having me around
And makes you think that you might want to come home

Sometimes
We’re confusing
I don’t mind
Ever losing
What comes by it honestly now
I’ll try to fix it somehow

I’ll take you to the moon
Let you hold the wheel
Won’t come down until it makes sense
To let the stories out
And turn them into myths
That put us in the “Halls of what it’s like to be missed”
Try to wait a while
Before stamping out the fire
Keep the cold around you so you want the warmth
That constitutes the need
Of having me around
And makes you think that you might want to come home

Sometimes
We’re confusing
I don’t mind
Ever losing
What comes by it honestly now
Cause I’ll try to fix it somehow

Some time wasted
Some wine tasted
So I play dead
Same sky
Same bed

On 30 January 1972 in the Bogside area of Derry, Northern Ireland, 26 unarmed civil rights protesters and bystanders were shot by members of the British Army. This day became known as Bloody Sunday. On 15 June 2010, The Saville Report found that all of those shot were unarmed, and that the killings were "unjustified and unjustifiable." On the publication of the Saville report the British prime minister, David Cameron, made a formal apology on behalf of the United Kingdom. Sorry to get political but this is an important part of Irish history which can now hopefully be laid to rest at last. So Bono, looks like the answer to the question "How long must we sing this song?" is 38 years.

Sunday Bloody Sunday
By U2


Yes

I can't believe the news today
Oh, I can't close my eyes and make it go away
How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long? How long?
'Cause tonight we can be as one, tonight

Broken bottles under children's feet
Bodies strewn across the dead end streets
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up, puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long? How long?
'Cause tonight we can be as one
Tonight, tonight

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

And it's true we are immune when fact is fiction and TV reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die
The real battle just begun to claim the victory Jesus won on

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Sunday Bloody Sunday

Melissa Etheridge cover of
(The) Weakness In Me


I'm not the sort of person
Who falls
In
And quickly
Out
Of love
But to you I gave my affection
Right from the start

I have a lover
Who loves me
How could I break such a heart
Yet still you get my attention

Why do you come here
When you know I've got troubles
Enough
Why do you call me
When you know
I can't answer the phone
Make me lie
When I don't want to
And make someone else
Some kind of unknowing fool

You make me stay
When I should not
Are you so strong
Or is all the weakness in me
Why do you come here
And pretend
To be just passing by
But I mean to see you
And I mean to hold you
Tightly

Feeling guilty
Worried
Waking from some tormented sleep
This old love has me bound
But the new one cuts deep

If I choose now
I'll lose out
One of you has to fall
And I need you
And you.

I have completely fallen in love with this band. Saw them live last week. Breathtaking!

Someone Else's Hands
By The Coronas


I can't hide from the thought of losing control
This disguise means I'm not who you think you know

Cause I've seen my fair share of broken hearted love
But it just don't scare me half as much as it should
Mistakes that you made, I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know
All the ways that you've gained just makes it so much harder letting go

In a daze I watched it move behind your eyes
But in some way I think you knew what I hid behind
It's easier to leave you cold than to waste your time
And if you hurt, know you broke your soul to save two lives

Cause I've seen my fair share of broken hearted love
But it just don't scare me half as much as it should
Mistakes that you made, I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know
All the ways that you've gained just makes it so much harder letting go

And I'm sorry but now I have to go
You know we got too close, I hope you understand
That I can't give you all the things you want
You know my heart belongs in someone else's hands

Someone else's hands
