Distant Dreamer

A brilliant song.

Although you think I cope
My head is filled with hope
Of some place other than here
Although you think I smile
Inside and all the while
I’m wondering about my destiny

I’m thinking about
All the things
I’d like to do
In my life

I’m a dreamer
A distant dreamer
Dreaming far away from today

Even when you see me frown
My heart won’t let me down
Because I know there’s better things to come
And when life gets tough
And I feel I’ve had enough
I hold on to a distant star

I’m thinking about
All the things
I’d like to do
In my life

I’m a dreamer
A distant dreamer
Dreaming far away from today
I’m a dreamer
A distant dreamer
Dreaming far away from today
Yeah I’m a dreamer

When I’m with you I have fun

Sweet Child O Mine

An excellent cover.

Love is the only soldier

Love is a drink with a lit cigarette
Love is your mouth that’s holding my breath
Love is your hand that covers my breast
Love is the only soldier left

Love is a man in a coat in the rain
Love’s every little mistake that he’s made
Love is the moment he has to embrace
Love is the only mercy left

Hide me inside your heart let me wash away
Hold me beneath your body all night and day
I pray that the morning comes and with me you’ll stay
Oh hide me inside your heart let me wash away

Love is a song that I sang when I’m sad
Love’s what I give to the world when I’m glad
Love’s every friendship that I’ve ever had
Love is the only soldier left

Hide me inside your heart let me wash away
Hold me beneath your body all night and day
I pray that the morning comes and with me you’ll stay
Oh hide me inside your heart let me wash away
Oh hold me beneath your body all night and day
I pray that the morning comes and with me you’ll stay
Oh hide me inside your heart let me wash away

Oh hide me inside your heart let me wash away
Oh hide me inside your heart let me wash away

“We could talk for hours, or we could just do nothing”

take your coat and shoes off
come and sit beside me
we could talk for hours
or we could just do nothing

four billion people surround us
so many souls lose their way
all that we have is each other
and that’s all I’ve ever wanted
yeah, yeah, yeah?

don’t you think it’s funny
tell me what the point is
we could die tomorrow
might as well enjoy this

four billion people surround us
so many souls lose their way
all that we have is each other
and that’s all I’ve ever wanted
yeah, yeah, yeah?

give me all your disappointments
I’ll l give you my secrets

we could lay our heads down
or be forever sleepless

four billion people surround us
so many souls lose their way
all that we have is each other
and that’s all I’ve ever wanted
yeah, yeah, yeah?

“I worry about being too happy”

No I will not lay down
I will not live my life like a ghost in this town
I am not lonely swear to God I’m just alone
I’m back on my feet
I can just close my eyes and forget everything
My house is empty every memory blown away

Oh the sound of the wind through my bones makes me laugh
at all the bodies I kissed and never knew
Oh the sound of a lover’s sympathy falling down to the floor
just barely out of reach from me

No I will not go back
every word thats been hiding inside of my head is running blindly
look behind me nothing’s left
I can sit in a room
I can hear myself breathing and be quite amused
My life is simple like the wrinkles on my skin

Oh the sound of the wind through my heart makes me glad
for all the ones that never knew my name
Oh the sound of a lover’s sympathy
I had to go could not stay here
they were always out of reach from me

Wishing That

Canadian icon Jann Arden is my friend on Twitter. I’m just saying. This is my favourite song from her 1997 album Happy?

And when I held you
You would almost always hold me down
you could see through everything I said I was falling
and you said not to fall on you
I’ve bitten every finger ’till it bled

Wishing that you loved me too
Wishing that you loved me too
Wishing that

And when I kissed you
You would almost always kiss me back
But I could tell your mind
was with someone else
Oh my hands are folded
neatly on my lap and I am
picturing your body as I ask myself if

You love me too
Wishing that you love me too
Wishing that

Listen to my nervous laughter
sunken deep inside my heart
My lips are dry I’m teary eyed
For you my love
Harken all you fallen angels
Help me find a place to rest
My head is pounding here beneath
the weight of this
I’m wishing that

And you know me
Oh you know me more than anyone
When I hear your voice
everything I’ve done disappears from memory
Oh my darling come and save me
Tell me I’m the one you’re dreaming of
Tell me that

You love me too
Wishing that you love me too
Wishing that you love me too
Wishing that you love me too
Wishing that ……
You love me too Wishing that ……
You love me too

I’m wishing that
I’m wishing that
I’m wishing that
I’m wishing that

You love me too

I’m wishing that
I’m wishing that

You love me too
