I SING ALONE MY THOUGHTS ALONG

Archive for August 2005

artist: Bonnie Raitt

Turn down the lights,
Turn down the bed,
Turn down these voices
Inside my head.
Lay down with me,
And tell me no lies.
Just hold me close
And don’t patronize,
Don’t patronize.

Chorus:
‘Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t.
You can’t make your heart feel something it won’t.
Here in the dark, in these final hours,
I will lay down my heart and I’ll feel the power
But you won’t, no, you won’t.
‘Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t.

I’ll close my eyes that I won’t see
The love you don’t feel when you’re holding me
Morning will come and I’ll do what’s right.
Just give me ’til then to give up this fight,
And I will give up this fight.

Chorus:

Ain’t no use in crying, baby.

“I am nothing special; of this I am sure.
I am a common girl with common thoughts,
and I’ve led a common life.
There are no monuments dedicated to me
and my name will soon be forgotten,
but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul,
and to me, this has always been enough.”
– The Notebook 

artist: The Rolling Stones

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Smiling faces I can see
But not for me
I sit and watch
As tears go by

My riches can’t buy everything
I want to hear the children sing
All I hear is the sound
Of rain falling on the ground
I sit and watch
As tears go by

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Doing things I used to do
They think are new
I sit and watch
As tears go by.

All these years, I’ve put up a “brave front.”
I guess, it’s about time I let everybody see the soft side of me.

I DO cry too…

artist: R.E.M.

When the day is long and the night,
The night is yours alone
When you’re sure you’ve had enough of this life,
Well hang on.
Don’t let yourself go, everybody cries
And everybody hurts, sometimes.

Sometimes everything is wrong
Now it’s time to sing along
When your day is night alone (hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go (hold on)
When you think you’ve had enough of this life
Well hang on.

Everybody hurts.
Take comfort in your friends.
Everybody hurts.
Don’t throw your hand. Oh no. Dont throw your hand.
If you feel you’re alone, no, no, no, no
You are not alone.

If you’re on your own in this life
The days and nights are long
When you think you’ve had too much of this life
To hand on.

Well everybody hurts, sometimes everybody cries.
And everybody hurts sometimes, everybody hurts sometimes.
So hold on, hold on.
Hold on, Hold on, Hold on, Hold on, Hold on, Hold on,
Everybody hurts. You are not alone.
