Lyrics:

It is the night. My body's weak.
I'm on the run. No time to sleep.
I've got to ride.

Ride like the wind to be free again.
And I got such a long way to go.
To make it to the border of Mexico.
So I'll ride like the wind.

I was born the son of a lawless man.
Always spoke my mind with a gun in my hand.
Lived nine lives
gunned down ten.
Gonna ride like the wind.

And I got such a long way to go.
To make it to the border of Mexico.
So I'll ride like the wind.
Ride like the wind.
Ride like the wind.

Accused and tried and told to hang
I was no where in sight
when the church bells rang.
Never was the kind to do as I was told.
Gonna ride like the wind before I get old.

It is the night. My body's weak.
I'm on the run. No time to sleep.
I've got to ride.
Ride like the wind to be free again.

And I got such a long way to go.
To make it to the border of Mexico.
So I'll ride like the wind.
Ride like the wind.

And I got such a long way to go.
To make it to the border of Mexico.
So I'll ride like the wind.
Gonna run like the wind.

Lyrics:

Lipstick junkie be funky all he wanty
she came back wearing a smile
Look-alike someone drug me
they wanted to unplug me
No one in here is on trial
Its just a turn-around

And we go
Oh
well and we go
Oh oh oh oh

Tic-toc, I want to rock you like the 80s
Cock-blocking isn’t allowed.
Tug boat sheila is into memorabilia
Who said three is a crowd?
We better get it on the go

Hey, now
We’ve gotta make it rain somehow
She told me too
And show me what to do
Oh Maggie makes it in her cloud

I said , hey, now
We gotta make it rain somehow
She told me too
And show me what to do
She knows how, to make it loud

Rain dance maggie advances to the final
Who knew that she had the goods?
Little did I know her body was one delicious vinyl
To your neck of the woods
I want to lick a little bit

Hey, now
We’ve gotta make it rain somehow
She told me too
And show me what to do
Oh Maggie makes it in her cloud

I said , hey, now
We gotta make it rain somehow
She told me too
And show me what to do
She knows how, to make it loud

Hey, now

And show me what to do
Oh Maggie makes it in her cloud

She told me too
And show me what to do
Oh Maggie makes it in her cloud

She told me too
And show me what to do
She knows how, to make it loud

Hey, now

And show me what to do
Oh Maggie makes it in her cloud

I said
Hey now

She knows how to make it loud

But not for longer
Its in a song girl

Depeche Mode - Strange Love (VH1 Week End Top 20) by Dmode59

Lyrics:

There'll be times
When my crimes
Will seem almost unforgivable
I give in to sin
Because you have to make this life liveable
But when you think I've had enough
From your sea of love
I'll take more than another riverfull
Yes, and I'll make it all worthwhile
I'll make your heart smile

Strangelove
Strange highs and strange lows
Strangelove
That's how my love goes
Strangelove
Will you give it to me
Will you take the pain
I will give to you
Again and again
And will you return it

There'll be days
When I'll stray
I may appear to be
Constantly out of reach
I give in to sin
Because I like to practice what I preach
I'm not trying to say
I'll have it all my way
I'm always willing to learn
When you've got something to teach
And I'll make it all worthwhile
I'll make your heart smile

Pain will you return it
I'll say it again -- pain
Pain will you return it
I'll say it again -- pain

Pain will you return it
I'll say it again -- pain
Pain will you return it
I won't say it again

Strangelove
Strange highs and strange lows
Strangelove
That's how my love goes
Strangelove
Will you give it to me

Strangelove
Strange highs and strange lows
Strangelove
That's how my love goes
Strangelove
Will you give it to me

Strangelove
Strange highs and strange lows
Strangelove
That's how my love goes
Strangelove
Will you give it to me

I give in
Again and again
I give in
Will you give it to me
I give in
I'll say it again
I give in

I give in
Again and again
I give in
That's how my love goes
I give in
I'll say it again
I give in

Lyrics:

Psychic spies from China
Try to steal your mind's elation
Little girls from Sweden
Dream of silver screen quotations
And if you want these kind of dreams
It's Californication

It's the edge of the world
And all of western civilization
The sun may rise in the East
At least it settles in the final location
It's understood that Hollywood
sells Californication

Pay your surgeon very well
To break the spell of aging
Celebrity skin is this your chin
Or is that war your waging

First born unicorn
Hard core soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

Marry me girl be my fairy to the world
Be my very own constellation
A teenage bride with a baby inside
Getting high on information
And buy me a star on the boulevard
It's Californication

Space may be the final frontier
But it's made in a Hollywood basement
Cobain can you hear the spheres
Singing songs off station to station
And Alderaan's not far away
It's Californication

Born and raised by those who praise
Control of population everybody's been there
and
I don't mean on vacation

First born unicorn
Hard core soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

Destruction leads to a very rough road
But it also breeds creation
And earthquakes are to a girl's guitar
They're just another good vibration
And tidal waves couldn't save the world
From Californication

Pay your surgeon very well
To break the spell of aging
Sicker than the rest
There is no test
But this is what you're craving
First born unicorn
Hard core soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

Chris Lake & Rowan Blades - Filth (2004)


This track was originally named Pagelake when it first leaked on slsknet.org late in 2003. Andy Page submitted a breaks remix which later made it to this final record as well, causing some confusion as to the official title of this track. It officially was retitled and released as "Filth". Nice rolling bass lines with trancey synths and a beat that carries you away.

Lyrics:

I know a man who hides out in his room
His only friends the silence and the gloom
I don’t know what reduced him to this fate
I only pray for him to find the strength

The strength he needs for his survival
To make it to this day’s arrival

They’ll be singing till the night comes to an end
When the broken hearted love again
Every angel up in heaven will descend
When the broken hearted love again
Yes, we’re gonna have a party like there’s never been
When the broken hearted love again
All the broken hearted people
When the broken hearted love again

I know a girl who thinks she sold her soul
Sold it to a man who’s hands are cold
But every night before she goes to bed
She hears the sweetest voices in her head
Telling her it’s time to start living
Telling her that all will be forgiven

Ohhh yeah

They’ll be singing till the night comes to an end
When the broken hearted love again
Every angel up in heaven will descend
When the broken hearted love again
Yes, we’re gonna have a party like there’s never been
When the broken hearted love again
All the broken hearted people
When the broken hearted love again

David Morales feat. Lea-Lorien - How Would You Feel? (2006)



Lyrics:

Do you feel you're in a dream?
Is it real or hardly what is seems?
Can your heart decide again?
Do you stay or burn me in your flames?

Do you wanna remember?
Did it last forever?
Was it what you imagined?
Or did it feel like magic?

How would you feel?
How would you know?
If it was truly love?

How would you feel?
How would you know?
If it was truly love?

How would you feel?
How would you know?
If it was truly love?

Could you sleep or did you hardly eat?
Could you breath when you were next to me?
Did a song remind you of my smile?
Did my sense just linger on for a while?

Do you wanna remember?
Did it last forever?
Was it what you imagined?
Or did it feel like magic?

How would you feel?
How would you know?
If it was truly love?

How would you feel?
How would you know?
If it was truly love?

How would you feel?
How would you know?
If it was truly love?

Do you wanna remember?
Did it last forever?
Was it what you imagined?
Or did it feel like magic?

How would you feel?
How would you know?
If it was truly love?

How would you feel
How would you know...

How would you feel?
How would you know?
If it was truly love?

How would you feel?
How would you know?
If it was truly love?

If it was truly love
If it was truly love

You make the world go round, you make my life turn down
You make the world go round, you make my life turn down

Enya

Eithne Ní Bhraonáin, born 1961 in Gweedore (Co. Donegal, Ireland) is better known as Enya Brennan, or simply: Enya. She began her musical career in 1980, when she briefly joined her family band Clannad, before leaving to perform solo. She gained wider recognition for her music in the 1986 BBC series The Celts. Her 1988 album Watermark propelled her to international fame and she became known for her unique sound, characterised by voice-layering, folk melodies, synthesised backdrops and ethereal reverberations.
She continued to enjoy steady success during the 1990s and 2000s; her 2000 album A Day Without Rain sold 15 million copies[5] and she was named the world's best selling female artist of 2001. Ireland's best-selling solo musician, Enya is officially the country's second-largest musical export after the band U2. Her album sales were more than 75 million worldwide, with over 26 million in album sales in the US alone, hardly surprising, as many TV stations and networks covered the horrid events of 11 Sep 2011 with her song 'Only Time'.

Lyrics:

let me sail, let me sail, let the orinoco flow,
let me reach, let me beach on the shores of Tripoli.
let me sail, let me sail, let me crash upon your shore,
let me reach, let me beach far beyond the Yellow Sea.
da da, da da, da da, da da, da da

sail away, sail away, sail away
sail away, sail away, sail away
sail away, sail away, sail away
sail away, sail away, sail away

from Bissau to Palau - in the shade of Avalon,
from Fiji to Tiree and the Isles of Ebony,
from Peru to Cebu hear the power of Babylon,
from Bali to Cali - far beneath the Coral Sea.

da da, da da, da da, da da, da da

turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, up, up adieu
turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, up, up adieu
turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, up, up adieu

sail away...

from the North to the South, Ebudæ into Khartoum,
from the deep sea of Clouds to the island of the moon,
carry me on the waves to the lands I've never been,
carry me on the waves to the lands I've never seen.

we can sail, we can sail, with the orinoco flow,
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away
we can steer, we can near with Rob Dickins at the wheel,
we can sigh, say goodbye Ross and his dependencies
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away

we can reach, we can beach on the shores of Tripoli
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away

from Bali to Cali - far beneath the Coral Sea
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away

from Bissau to Palau - in the shade of Avalon
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away

we can reach, we can beach far beyond the Yellow Sea.
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away

from Peru to Cebu hear the power of Babylon,
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away...

where the road goes
where the day flows
- only time
And who can say
if your love grows
as your heart chose
- only time

Who can say
why your heart sighs
as your love flies
- only time
And who can say
why your heart cries
when your love lies
- only time

Who can say
when the roads meet
that love might be
in your heart

And who can say
when the day sleeps
if the night keeps
all your heart

Night keeps all your heart

Who can say
if your love grows
as your heart chose
- only time
And who can say
where the road goes
where the day flows
- only time

Who knows - only time
Who knows - only time

Lyrics:

Deperir a gris - deperir a gris.
One man on a lonely platform

One case sitting by his side.
Two eyes staring cold and silent

Show fear as he turns to hide.

Ah
we fade to grey - fade to grey
Ah
we fade to grey - fade to grey

Un homme dans une gare desolee

Une valise a ses cotes.
Deux yeux fixes et froids -
Montre de la peur lorsqu'il
Se tourne pour se cacher.

Ah
we fade to grey - fade to grey
Ah
we fade to grey - fade to grey

Sent la pluie comme un ete anglais.
Comme les notes d'une chanson lointaine
Sortant de derriere d'un poster esperant
Que la vie ne fut si longue.

Ah
we fade to grey - fade to grey
Ah
we fade to grey - fade to grey

Feel the rain
like an English summer

Feel the notes from a distant song.
Stepping out from a back shop poster

Wishing life wouldn't be so dull.

Deperir a gris
Ah
we fade to grey - fade to grey
Ah
we fade to grey - fade to grey
Ah
we fade to grey - fade to grey

Deperir a gris
Ah
we fade to grey - fade to grey . . .

Visage - Mind of a Toy (1981)
DE#10, UK#13, IRL#16, NL#42



Lyrics:

My painted face
Is chipped and cracked
My mind seems
To fade too fast
Clutching straws
Sinking slow
Nothing less, nothing less

A puppet's motions
Controlled by a string
By a stranger
I've never met
A nod of the head
And a pull of the thread
I can't say no, can't say no

When a child throws out a toy
When I was new you wanted me
Now I'm old you no longer see

When a child throws out a toy
Spiteful girl
Hateful boy
When a child throws out a toy

I'm all dressed up
And nowhere to go
On a music box
That never stops
I'll dance for you
If you want me to
Move in time, move in time

A wooden head
And a broken heart
Used, abused
And torn apart
I gave you my best
And you gave me the rest
It's time to die, time to die

When a child throws out a toy
When I was new you wanted me
Now I'm old you no longer see

When a child throws out a toy
Spiteful girl
Hateful boy
When a child throws out a toy

(Instrumental)

When a child throws out a toy
When I was new you wanted me
Now I'm old you no longer see

When a child throws out a toy
Spiteful girl
Hateful boy
When a child throws out a toy

Diana Ross - Eaten Alive (1985)

Eaten Alive was written by Barry Gibb, Maurice Gibb (of Bee Gees fame) and Michael Jackson, who also co-produced the track and the album with same name, and can be heard backing up Diana Ross. The track was originally credited to Barry and Maurice Gibb, and not until Michael Jackson heard the demo of it that he suggested the chorus could be improved and finally copyright re-registered with the note ‘words and music in the choruses have been completely rewritten’

Lyrics:

Animal stalking you at night
I'm a sucker for someone
And I got the prey in sight
Lying on a bed of leaves
In the modern times
You forget and let your spirit breathe

Capture me my blood is red
Another victim of your ritual
For you my skin is shed
Ecstacy ain't what you find
In the modern world
One flick of my tongue changes
The meaning of the world
And you say

That's impossible
That's not impossible to do, oh
And you digest what I can see
The taste of you can be

I don't wanna get eaten alive
'Cause you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust, you see
I don't wanna get eaten alive
To be eaten alive
Eaten alive
I don't ever wanna be
Eaten alive

Now I got you on the run
And the quicker my senses
And the chance is, I'm the faster one
I know the universal law
Primeval times
With a little stimulation
It'll come once more, and you say

That's impossible
It's not impossible to do, oh
And you digest what I can see
The taste of you can be

I don't wanna get eaten alive
'Cause you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust
You see
I don't wanna get eaten alive
To be eaten alive
Eaten alive
I don't ever wanna be
Eaten alive

I don't wanna get eaten alive
'Cause you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust
You see
I don't wanna get eaten alive
To be eaten alive
Tie me to a tree, crawl all over me
You can rip my shirt, drag me in the dirt
I will be your slave, anything you say
I don't ever wanna be eaten alive

I don't wanna get eaten alive
'Cos you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust, you see
I don't wanna get eaten alive
'Cos you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust, you see
I don't wanna get eaten alive
'Cos you're dangerous
No more hearts I can trust, you see
I don't wanna get eaten alive
To be eaten alive

Gotta do her, crawl all over me
You can rip my shirt, drag me in the dirt
I will be your slave, anything you say
I don't ever wanna be, eaten alive

Lyrics:

We can remember swimming in December.
Heading for the city lights in 1975.
We share in each other.
Nearer than farther.
The scent of a lemon drips from your eyes.
We are the people that rule the world.
A force running in every boy and girl.
All rejoicing in the world.
Take me now - We can try.
We lived an adventure
Love in the Summer.
Followed the sun till night
Reminiscing other times of life.
For each every other
The feeling was stronger.
The shock hit eleven - Got lost in your eyes.

I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me. But I know I try.
Are you gonna leave me now.
Can't you be believing now.

I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me. But I know I try.
Are you gonna leave me now.
Can't you be believing now.

Can you remember and humanize.
It was still where we'd energized.
Lie in the sand and visualize like it's 75 again.
We are the people that rule the world.
A force running in every boy and girl.
All rejoicing in the world.
Take me now - We can try.
I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me. But I know I try.
Are you gonna leave me now.
Can't you be believing now.
I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me. But I know I try.
Are you gonna leave me now.
Can't you be believing now.

I know everything about you.
Know everything about me.
Know everything about us.

I know everything about you.
Know everything about me.
Know everything about us.

I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me. But I know I try.
Are you gonna leave me now.
Can't you be believing now.
I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me. But I know I try.
Are you gonna leave me now.
Can't you be believing now.

Lyrics:

Rain pours down over a city
Night has fallen like a stone
Are you gone or are you with me?
In my heart I'll never know
If I close my eyes I'll see you
Hear your footsteps in the rain
In my dream I'll never find you
but I'll hear you call my name

As I tread through crowds of people
Trying to keep from looking back
Got your sense on something passing
And it sends me off my track

Do I find you will I follow
To forever and a day
I can feel you in the distance
But you seem so far away

What if I just can't find my way back home (ooh)
What about all the things I just don't don't know (ooh)
What if I just can't find my way back home (ooh)
Would you be there to show me where to go (ooh)

Lyrics:

Came in the door
chucked in my coat
And who i'm looking for
Is staring in my face

They played our song
We hit the floor
He held me strong
And we danced the night away

I can see the way that he is making feel
This way about his love
I’ve been looking for something like this
I’m saying ooh oh oh oh ooh oh oh !

If he makes you feel like a million dollar bill
Say oh oh oh, say oh oh oh !
If you go left right up down
Make you spinning round and round
Say ooh oh oh oh, say ooh oh oh oh !

It’s been a long long time
Since I fell, fell
Love has found my way oh oh oh
I’ve been looking (looking)
I’ve been searching (searching)
For the man to touch this place, oh ooh oh yeah

Can’t deny the way that he is making feel
This way about his love
I’v been searching for something like this
I’m saying oooh oh oh oh, say ooh oh oh oh !

If he makes you feel like a million dollar bill
Say oh oh oh, say oh oh oh !
Makes you go left right up down
Makes you spinning round and round
Say oooh oh oh oh, say ooh oh oh oh !

If he makes you feel like a million dollar bill
Say oh oh oh, say oh oh oh !
Makes you go left right up down
Makes you spinning round and round
Say oooh oh oh oh, say ooh oh oh oh !

If you feel good
If you’re feeling good
Put one hand in the air, say yeah
If you feel good
If you’re feeling good
It’s cause love is in the air
Love is in the air

If he makes you feel like a million dollar bill
Say oh oh oh, say oh oh oh !
Makes you go left right up down
Makes you spinning round and round
Say ooh oh oh oh, say ooh oh oh oh !

If he makes you feel like a million dollar bill
Say oh oh oh, say oh oh oh !
Makes you go left right up down
Makes you spinning round and round
Say ooh oh oh oh, say ooh oh oh oh !

Lyrics:

(....forever)

Sometimes you're better off dead
There's gun in your hand and it's pointing at your head
You think you're mad, too unstable
Kicking in chairs and knocking down tables
In a restaurant in a west end town
Call the police, there's a madman around
Running down underground to a dive bar
In a west end town

In a west end town, a dead end world
The east end boys and west end girls
In a west end town, a dead end world
The east end boys and west end girls
West end girls

Too many shadows, whispering voices
Faces on posters, too many choices
If, when, why, what?
How much have you got?
Have you got it, do you get it, if so, how often?
And which do you choose, a hard or soft option?
(how much do you need?)

In a west end town, a dead end world
The east end boys and west end girls
In a west end town, a dead end world
The east end boys and west end girls
West end girls
West end girls

(how much do you need?)

In a west end town, a dead end world
The east end boys and west end girls
Oooh west end town, a dead end world
East end boys, west end girls
West end girls

You've got a heart of glass or a heart of stone
Just you wait 'till i get you home
We've got no future, we've got no past
Here today, built to last
In every city, in every nation
From lake geneva to the finland station
(how far have you been?)

In a west end town, a dead end world
The east end boys and west end girls
A west end town, a dead end world
East end boys, west end girls
West end girls

West end girls

West end girls
(how far have you been?)

Girls
East end boys
And west end girls
And west end girls
And west end girls

East end boys
The west end girls
The west end boys
And west end girls

The west end girls
The west end boys
The west end girls

Lyrics:

And it feels so good inside
And I feel it, so alive and
Everything that feels so right
And I feel it so alive
Everything that feels so right (yeah yeah)

Everytime, everytime
Everytime we touch, I feel it

I feel it
Everytime we touch

Everytime we touch
Emotions that I cant contain
Are sweeping over me again
Everytime we touch
Sensations I can not explain
Are washing all away my pain
Everytime we touch
A magic spring from deep inside
Comes into me like breathe of light
Everytime we touch
Something takes a hold of me
Everytime we touch

Everytime we touch
Heaven and Earth collide
Everything feels so right
Everytime we touch
This feeling takes over me
Something takes over me

Everytime we touch (yeah)
Heaven and Earth collide
Everything feels so right
Everytime we touch
This feeling takes over me
Something takes over me
Everytime we touch

Ohh

Everytime you're near
And I feel so good inside (yeah)

Everytime we touch
The secrets of my beating heart
Are breaking free out of the dark
Everytime we touch
All the things I can't express
Feel me with such happiness
Everytime we touch
All the changes that helped me father
Broke and crumbling to the ground
Everytime we touch
Something takes a hold of me
Everytime we touch

Everytime we touch
Heaven and Earth collide
Everything feels so right
Everytime we touch
This feeling takes over me
Something takes over me

Everytime we touch (yeah)
Heaven and Earth collide
Everything feels so right
Everytime we touch
This feeling takes over me
Something takes over me
Everytime we touch

And it feels so good inside
And I feel it, so alive and
Everything that feels so right
And I feel it so alive
Everything that feels so right (yeah yeah)

Lyrics:

i don't know why
don't know why that i torture myself
overact and draw conclusions of truth
sometimes i hate myself for wanting you but then
you only have to say you love me
to make it worth it
you only have to say you love me
and i'm flying flying

so many times i try
to find a way that i
will never be denied
to your world
i put aside my pride
cross the great divide
i wanna stay inside
in your world

i don't know why
don't know why that i torture myself
overact and draw conclusions of truth
sometimes i hate myself for wanting you but then
you only have to say you love me
to make it worth it
you only have to say you love me
and i'm flying flying
you only have to say you love me
to make it worth it
you only have to say you love me
and i'm flying flying

love me
love me
you only have to say you love me

so many times you say
there's gonna come a day
your heart will always stay
by my side
why do i act so foolishly
need you to notice me
why can't i love you patiently

i don't know why don't know why
that i torture myself
overact and draw conclusions of truth
sometimes i hate myself for wanting you but then
you only have to say you love me
to make it worth it
you only have to say you love me
and i'm flying flying
you only have to say you love me
to make it worth it
you only have to say you love me
and i'm flying flying

i don't know why don't know why

Lyrics:

Manchmal sind die Dinge gar nicht so
Wie man sich's vorgestellt hat
Sondern besser
Manchmal ist das Einzige was zählt
Dass ich nicht nachdenke
Sondern vergesse
Mach die Lichter an

Ich geh' in Flammen auf
Kann auf Wasser geh'n
Ich schrei's hinaus
Ich geh' in Flammen auf
Kann jetzt fliegen
Übers Meer hinaus

Halt dich fest an mir
Weil der Wind sich jetzt dreht
Es wird 'n stürmischer Tag
Unser Leben wird wahr
Ist der Frühling vorbei
Fängt der Sommer erst an
Unser Leben lang
Unser Leben lang

Wahrheit ist doch nur was für Idioten
Lass uns lügen
Nur einen Tag lang
Wenn ich mich fangen lass'
Dann nur vom Leben
Wär' ich Pilot würden wir
Niemals landen
Schalt die Motoren an

Ich geh' in Flammen auf
Kann auf Wasser geh'n
Ich schrei's hinaus
Ich geh' in Flammen auf
Kann jetzt fliegen
Übers Meer hinaus

Halt dich fest an mir
Weil der Wind sich jetzt dreht
Es wird 'n stürmischer Tag
Unser Leben wird wahr
Ist der Frühling vorbei
Fängt der Sommer erst an
Unser Leben lang
Unser Leben lang

Ich geh' in Flammen auf
Ich geh' in Flammen auf
Ich geh' in Flammen auf

Ich geh' in Flammen auf
Ich geh' in Flammen auf
Ich geh' in Flammen auf

Halt dich fest an mir
Weil der Wind sich jetzt dreht
Es wird 'n stürmischer Tag
Unser Leben wird wahr
Ist der Frühling vorbei
Fängt der Sommer erst an
Unser Leben lang
Unser Leben lang

Ich geh' in Flammen auf
Ich geh' in Flammen auf
Ich geh' in Flammen auf

Ich geh' in Flammen auf
Ich geh' in Flammen auf
Ich geh' in Flammen auf

English translation:

Sometimes things aren't the way
That you had imagined them
But better
Sometimes the only thing that counts is
That I don't think
But forget
Turn on the lights

I am bursting into flames
I can walk on water
I scream it out loud
I am bursting into flames
I can fly now
Out across the sea

Hold on to me
Because the wind is changing
It will be a stormy day
Our life becomes reality
Once springtime is over
The summer only begins
For all our life
For all our life

The truth is only for idiots
Let us lie
Just for one day
If I let myself be caught
Then only by life
If I were a pilot we would
Never land
Turn on the engines

I am bursting into flames
I can walk on water
I scream it out loud
I am bursting into flames
I can fly now
Out across the sea

Hold on to me
Because the wind is changing
It will be a stormy day
Our life becomes reality
Once springtime is over
The summer only begins
For all our life
For all our life

I am bursting into flames
I am bursting into flames
I am bursting into flames

I am bursting into flames
I am bursting into flames
I am bursting into flames

Hold on to me
Because the wind is changing
It will be a stormy day
Our life becomes reality
Once springtime is over
The summer only begins
For all our life
For all our life

I am bursting into flames
I am bursting into flames
I am bursting into flames

I am bursting into flames
I am bursting into flames
I am bursting into flames

Lyrics:

Sometimes you know you push me so hard
I don't know how I feel
You almost make me doubt I feel at all

It's not as though I always listen
But there's just so much I don't hear
Maybe I'll never be what you want
I know that all you're asking for
Is a little place in my heart
But I don't find it easy to give

Maybe I get a little selfish sometimes
Why shouldn't I?
I used to say I love you
But would it make a difference this time?

And who am I to tell you that I would never let you down
That no-one else could love you half as much as I do now
And who am I to tell you I'll always catch you when you fall
Well I, I wouldn't be myself at all
I wouldn't be myself at all, at all.

I always find a reason why I didn't put you first
It's not that complicated I know
I really hate it when you shake your head like this ain't gonna work
Maybe you'll never reap what you sow

And who am I to tell you that I would never let you down
That no-one else could love you half as much as I do now
And who am I to tell you I'll always catch you when you fall
Well I, I wouldn't be myself at all
I wouldn't be myself at all, at all.

I didn't want to do what everybody does
And hide the truth to find we never knew a thing about love
Cos this is real life, real love
And knowing what it comes down too
It just might be enough

And who am I to tell you that I would never let you down
That no-one else could love you half as much as I do now
And who am I to tell you I'll always catch you when you fall
Well I, I wouldn't be myself at all
I wouldn't be myself at all, at all

And who am I to tell you that I would never let you down
That no-one else could love you half as much as I do now
And who am I to tell you I'll always catch you when you fall
Well I, I wouldn't be myself at all
I wouldn't be myself at all, at all

Lyrics:

You are on one side
And I am on the other
Are we divided?
You are on one side
I am on the other
Are we divided?
Why can't we live together
There are no rights
This isn't your decision
We need to talk of changing things
But no one wants to listen
It doesn't have to be like that
It doesn't have to be like that
It doesn't have to be like that

A heart on the inside
The same as any other
Are we divided?
Someone always has to suffer
We are broken
There's no one left to change it
Is that the way it has to be?
Why can't we rearrange it?
It doesn't have to be like that
(One against one)
It doesn't have to be like that
(One against one)
It doesn't have to be like that
What is the secret
In calling me a brother?
Are we divided?
Always one against the other
We are strong now
Put down the ammunition
For what we know is right
Is gonna breakdown this division
It doesn't have to be like that
(One against one)
It doesn't have to be like that
(One against one)
It doesn't have to be like that
(One against one)
(One against one)
It doesn't have to be like that
You are one side
And I am on the other
Are we divided?

Never heard nothing but bad things about him

To tell me the truth

Your Papa was a rolling stone yeah
Wherever he laid his hat was his home

Can you believe he left us?

Lyrics:

I'm saying all the things that I know you'll like, makin' good conversation
I gotta handle you just right, you know what I mean
I took you to an intimate restaurant, then to a suggestive movie
There's nothin' left to talk about, unless it's horizontally

Let's get physical, physical, I wanna get physical, let's get into physical
Let me hear your body talk, your body talk, let me hear your body talk

Let's get physical, physical, I wanna get physical, let's get into physical
Let me hear your body talk, your body talk, let me hear your body talk

I've been patient, I've been good, tried to keep my hands on the table
It's gettin' hard this holdin' back, you know what I mean
I'm sure you'll understand my point of view, we know each other mentally
You gotta know that you're bringin' out the animal in me

Let's get physical, physical, I wanna get physical, let's get into physical
Let me hear your body talk, your body talk, let me hear your body talk

Let's get physical, physical, I wanna get physical, let's get into physical
Let me hear your body talk, your body talk, let me hear your body talk

Lyrics:

Hey there I hope everything’s alright
I forgot to call you in the winter time
Like the waves crash coming right
I’ve got feelings pouring down against the ceiling
While you try to trace which side I’m on
When the wind blows between us
High above this empty feeling
I Don’t Wanna Stop
I Don’t Wanna Stop
When the waves crash beneath us
Down below this empty feeling
I Don’t Wanna Stop
I Don’t Wanna Stop

Can we dance like everything’s alright
Can we trade the day in for the night
Like a homesick tournament
I’m not breathing till I leave with you believing
I don’t wanna trace another song

When the wind blows between us
High above this empty feeling
I Don’t Wanna Stop
I Don’t Wanna Stop
When the waves crash beneath us
Down below this empty feeling
I Don’t Wanna Stop
I Don’t Wanna Stop

I Don’t Wanna Stop
I Don’t Wanna Stop

When the wind blows between us
High above this empty feeling
I Don’t Wanna Stop
I Don’t Wanna Stop
When the waves crash beneath us
Down below this empty feeling
I Don’t Wanna Stop
I Don’t Wanna Stop

ATB - 9pm, Til I Come (1998)

André Tanneberger, a.k.a. ATB, born 26 February 1973, Freiberg (Saxony, East Germany) released his first track in 1998. '9pm (Till I Come)', which topped the UK music charts in 1999, is widely regarded as the first trance number one. The track features a guitar riff that became hugely popular. This guitar sound, which he accidentally found while experimenting with a new producing deck, became his trademark. ATB continues to evolve and change with every album. His current style involves more vocals and varied sounds, with frequent pianos.

Lyrics:

Start spreading the news,
I'm leaving today.
I want to be a part of it -
New York, New York.

These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
And step around the heart of it
New York, New York.

I want to wake up in a city,
That doesn't sleep,
To find I'm king of the hill- ah-
Top of the heap.

My little town blues
Are melting away
I'm gonna make a brand new start of it
In old New York.
If I can make it there,
I'd make it anywhere
It's up to you,
New York, New York.

New York, New York!

I want to wake up in a city,
That doesn't sleep,
To find I'm king of the hill,
Head of the list,
Cream of the crop
At top of the heap.

My little town blues
Are melting away
I'm gonna make a brand new start of it
In old New York.
If I can make it there,
I'd make it anywhere
Come on, come through,
New York, New York.

Udo Jürgens - Ich war noch niemals in New York



Lyrics:

Und nach dem Abendessen sagte er,
laß mich noch eben Zigaretten holen geh'n,
sie rief ihm nach nimm Dir die Schlüssel mit,
ich werd inzwischen nach der Kleinen seh'n,
er zog die Tür zu, ging stumm hinaus,
ins neon-helle Treppenhaus,
es roch nach Bonerwachs und Spießigkeit.
und auf der Treppe dachte er, wie wenn das jetzt ein Aufbruch wär,
ich müßte einfach geh'n für alle Zeit,
für alle Zeit...
Ich war noch niemals in New York, ich war noch niemals auf Hawaii,
ging nie durch San Francisco in zerriss'nen Jeans,
Ich war noch niemals in New York, ich war noch niemals richtig frei,
einmal verrückt sein und aus allen Zwängen flieh'n.
Und als er draussen auf der Straße stand,
fiel ihm ein, daß er fast alles bei sich trug,
den Paß, die Eurochecks und etwas Geld,
vielleicht ging heute abend noch ein Flug.
Er könnt' ein Taxi nehmen dort am Eck oder Autostop und einfach weg,
die Sehnsucht in ihm wurde wieder wach,
nach einmal voll von Träumen sein, sich aus der Enge hier befrei'n,
er dachte über seinen Aufbruch nach,seinen Aufbruch nach...
Ich war noch niemals in New York, ich war noch niemals auf Hawaii,
ging nie durch San Francisco in zerriss'nen Jeans,
Ich war noch niemals in New York, ich war noch niemals richtig frei,
einmal verrückt sein und aus allen Zwängen flieh'n.
Dann steckte er die Zigaretten ein und ging wie selbstverständlich heim,
durchs Treppenhaus mit Bohnerwachs und Spießigkeit,
die Frau rief "Mann, wo bleibst Du bloß, Dalli-Dalli geht gleich los",
sie fragte "War was?" - "Nein, was soll schon sein."
Ich war noch niemals in New York, ich war noch niemals auf Hawaii,
ging nie durch San Francisco in zerriss'nen Jeans,
Ich war noch niemals in New York, ich war noch niemals richtig frei,
einmal verrückt sein und aus allen Zwängen flieh'n.

Lyrics:

Yeah I'm out that Brooklyn.
Now I'm down in Tribeca.
Right next to DeNiro
But I'll be hood forever
I'm the new Sinatra
And since I made it here
I can make it anywhere
(Yeah they love me everywhere)
I used to cop in Harlem
All of my Dominicanos (Hey yo)
Right there off of Broadway
Brought me back to that McDonalds
Took it to my stash spot
560 State Street
Catch me in the kitchen like Simmons whipping Pastry
Cruising down 8th street
Off-white Lexus
Driving so slow
(but BK, it's from Texas!!)
Me I'm out that BedStuy
Home of that boy Biggie
now I live on Billboard
and I brought my boys with me
Say what up to Ta-ta
Still sipping Mai Tais
Sitting courtside
Knicks and Nets give me high-5
N**ga, I be Spiked out
I could trip a referee
...tell by my attitude that I'm MOST DEFINITELY FROM...

[Alicia Keys]
New York!!!!
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
There's nothing you can’t do,
Now you're in New York!!!
These streets will make you feel brand new,
the lights will inspire you,
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New York

[Jay-Z]
I made you hot n-gga,
Catch me at the X with OG at a Yankee game,
sh-t I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can,
you should know I bleed Blue, but I ain't a crip tho,
but I got a gang of n-ggas walking with my clique though,
welcome to the melting pot,
corners where we selling rocks,
Afrika bambaataa sh-t,
home of the hip hop,
yellow cab, gypsy cab, dollar cab, holla back,
for foreigners it ain't fitted act like they forgot how to act,
8 million stories out there and they're naked,
city it's a pity half of y’all won’t make it,
me I gotta plug a special and I got it made,
If Jeezy's payin LeBron, I’m paying Dwayne Wade,
3 dice cee-lo
3 card marley,
Labor Day parade, rest in peace Bob Marley,
Statue of Liberty, long live the World Trade,
long live the king yo,
I’m from the Empire State thats…

[Alicia Keys]

Now you're in New York!!!
These streets will make you feel brand new,

Welcome to the bright light..

[Jay-Z]
Lights is blinding,
girls need blinders
so they can step out of bounds quick,
the side lines is blind with casualties,
who sip the lite casually, then gradually become worse,
don’t bite the apple Eve,
caught up in the in crowd,
now you're in-style,
and in the winter gets cold en vogue with your skin out,
the city of sin is a pity on a whim.
good girls gone bad, the city's filled with them,
Mommy took a bus trip and now she got her bust out,
everybody ride her, just like a bus route,
Hail Mary to the city your a Virgin,
and Jesus can’t save you life starts when the church ends,
came here for school, graduated to the high life,
ball players, rap stars, addicted to the limelight,
MDMA got you feeling like a champion,
the city never sleeps better slip you a Ambien

[Alicia Keys]
New York!!!!
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
There's nothing you can’t do,
Now you're in New York!!!
These streets will make you feel brand new,
the lights will inspire you,
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New York

[Alicia Keys]
One hand in the air for the big city,
Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty,
no place in the World that can compare,
Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeaaahh
come on, come,
yeah,

[Alicia Keys]
New York!!!!
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
There's nothing you can’t do,
Now you're in New York!!!
These streets will make you feel brand new,
the lights will inspire you,

Bruce Springsteen - Born In The U.S.A. on MUZU.TV

Lyrics:

Born down in a dead man's town
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
You end up like a dog that's been beat too much
Till you spend half your life just covering up

Born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.

Got in a little hometown jam
So they put a rifle in my hand
Sent me off to a foreign land
To go and kill the yellow man

Born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.

Come back home to the refinery
Hiring man says "Son if it was up to me"
Went down to see my V.A. man
He said "Son, don't you understand"

I had a brother at Khe Sahn fighting off the Viet Cong
They're still there, he's all gone

He had a woman he loved in Saigon
I got a picture of him in her arms now

Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
Out by the gas fires of the refinery
I'm ten years burning down the road
Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go

Born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.
I'm a long gone Daddy in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.
I'm a cool rocking Daddy in the U.S.A.

Stars on 54 - If You Could Read My Mind ( by djoik

Lyrics:

If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts would tell
Just like an old time movie
'Bout a ghost from a wishing well
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
You know that ghost is me

I don't know where we went wrong
But the feeling's gone and I just can't get it back

If you could read my mind, yeah

If you could read your mind love
What a tale my thoughts would tell
Just like a paperback novel
The kind that drugstores sell
When you reach the part where the heartache comes
The hero would be you
Heroes often fail

Never thought I could feel this way
And I've got to say that I just don't get it
I don't know where we went wrong
But the feeling's gone and I just can't get it back

If you could read my mind

If you could
If you could
If you could read my mind (repeat)

If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts would tell
Just like an old time movie
'Bout a ghost from a wishing well

If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts would tell
Just like a paperback novel
The kind that drugstores sell

And when you reach the part where the heartache comes
The hero would be you
Heroes often fail

Never thought I could feel this way
And I've got to say that I just don't get it
I don't know where we went wrong
But the feeling's gone
And I just can't get it back

If you could
If you could
If you could read my mind

Lyrics:

Hey boy, take a look at me
Let me dirty up your mind
I'll strip away your hard veneer
And see what I can find

The queerest of the queer
The strangest of the strange
The coldest of the cool
The lamest of the lame
The numbest of the dumb
I hate to see you here
You choke behind a smile
A fake behind the fear
The queerest of the queer

This is what he pays me for
I'll show you how it's done
You learn to love the pain you feel
Like father, like son

The queerest of the queer
Hide inside your head
The blindest of the blind
The deadest of the dead
You're hungry 'cause you starve
While holding back the tears
Choking on your smile
A fake behind the fear
The queerest of the queer

I know what's good for you (You can touch me if you want)
I know you're dying to (You can touch me if you want)
I know what's good for you (You can touch me if you want)
But you can't stop

The queerest of the queer
The strangest of the strange
The coldest of the cool
The lamest of the lame
The numbest of the dumb
I hate to see you here
You choke behind a smile
A fake behind the fear

The queerest of the queer
The strangest of the strange
The coldest of the cool
You're nothing special here
A fake behind the fear
The queerest of the queer

I know what's good for you
I know you're dying to
I know what's good for you
I bet you're dying to

You can touch me if you want
You can touch me if you want
You can touch me
You can touch me
But you can't stop

Lyrics:


You pretend you're high
Pretend you're bored
Pretend you're anything
Just to be adored
And what you need
Is what you get

Don't believe in fear
Don't believe in faith
Don't believe in anything
That you can't break
You stupid girl

You stupid girl
All you had you wasted
All you had you wasted
What drives you on

Can drive you mad
A million lies to sell yourself
Is all you ever had

Don't believe in love
Don't believe in hate
Don't belive in anything
That you can't waste
You stupid girl

You stupid girl
Can't believe you fake it
Can't believe you fake it

Don't believe in fear
Don't believe in pain
Don't believe in anyone
That you can't tame
You stupid girl

You stupid girl
All you had you wasted
All you had you wasted
You stupid girl

You stupid girl
Can't believe you fake it
Can't believe you fake it
You stupid girl
