Here is one of my favs

 

Crossing that bridge,

With lessons I've learned.

Playing with fire,

And not getting burned.

I may not know what you're going through.

But time is the space,

Between me and you.

Life carries on... it goes on.

Seal's Prayer for the dying

The distant echo

of far away voices boarding far away trains

to take them home to

the ones that they love

and who love them

forever

 

The close dirty steps

reflect my thoughts and repeat my own

headlines of death and sorrow

they tell of tomorrow's

mad men on the rampage

and I'm down in the tube sation at midnight

 

I put in the money

and pulled out the Queen

Smiling beguiling

whispers in the shadows

gruff brazen voices

hating , waiting

Hey boy they shout

Have you got any money

and I say

"I've a little money and a take away curry and I'm on my way home to my wife

She'll be lining up the cutlery you know she's expecting me polishing the glasses and pulling out the cork"

And I'm down in the tube station at midnight

 

I first felt a fist

and then a kick

I could now smell their breath

They smelt of pubs

and wormwood scrubs

and too many right wing meetings

 

The smell of brown leather

it mingled in with the weather as it filled my

eyes ears nose and mouth it drowned all my senses

till I could speak hear feel any longer

Dont want to go down in the tube sation at midnight

 

The last thing that I saw as I lay there on the floor was "Jesus saves"

written by some aetheist nutter and a British Rail poster read

"Have an away day, a cheap holiday, a do it today

 

I said I was down in the tube station at midnight

The wine will be corked and the curry's gone cold

 

 

Or something like that. Few bits i've missed out, but you get the picture.Written before Paul Weller went mad and started writing about pebbles on the beach and wild woods which he clearly doesnt know the first thing about. But the Jam, they were great. Just goes to show that he was nothing without Foxton and Buckler.

 

But this was a first class damning indictment of urban life.

 

In memory of Paul Weller c.1958 to 1981

Now that she's back in the atmosphere

With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey

She acts like summer and walks like rain

Reminds me that there's time to change, hey, hey

Since the return from her stay on the moon

She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey

 

Tell me did you sail across the sun

Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded

And that heaven is overrated

 

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star

One without a permanent scar

And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

 

Now that she's back from that soul vacation

Tracing her way through the constellation, hey, hey

She checks out Mozart while she does tae-bo

Reminds me that there's room to grow, hey, hey

 

Now that she's back in the atmosphere

I'm afraid that she might think of me as plain ol' Jane

Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land

 

Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet

Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day

And head back to the Milky Way

And tell me, did Venus blow your mind

Was it everything you wanted to find

And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

 

Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken

Your best friend always sticking up for you

Even when I know you're wrong

Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance five-hour phone conversation

The best soy latte that you ever had and me

 

Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet

Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day

And head back toward the Milky Way

 

Tell me did you sail across the sun

Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded

And that heaven is overrated

 

Tell me did you fall for a shooting star

One without a permanent scar

And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself

 

And did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day

And did you fall for a shooting star

Fall for a shooting star

And are you lonely looking for yourself out there

Not my favourite (I don't have a favourite anything). But at this moment in time I like them.

 

Please can you stop the noise, I'm trying to get some rest

From all the unborn chicken voices in my head

What's that...? (I may be paranoid, but not an android)

What's that...? (I may be paranoid, but not an android)

 

When I am king, you will be first against the wall

(with) your opinion which is of no consequence at all

What's that...? (I may be paranoid, but no android)

What's that...? (I may be paranoid, but no android)

 

Ambition makes you look pretty ugly

Kicking, squealing gucci little piggy

You don't remember

You don't remember

Why don't you remember my name?

Off with his head, man

Off with his head, man

Why don't you remember my name? I guess he does...

 

Rain down, rain down

Come on rain down on me

From a great height

From a great height... height...

Rain down, rain down

Come on rain down on me

From a great height

From a great height... height...

Rain down, rain down

Come on rain down on me

 

That's it sir

You're leaving

The crackle of pigskin

The dust and the screaming

The yuppies networking

The panic, the vomit

The panic, the vomit

God loves his children, God loves his children, yeah!

If you don't care what happened to me,

And I don't care for you,

We would zig zag our way through the bordom and pain,

Occasionally glancing up through the rain'

Wondering which of the buggers to blame

And watching for pigs on the wing.

Pink Floyd's "Amimals".

 

I conclusion:

 

(Part Two)

 

You know that I care about what happens to you,

And I know that you care for me,

So I don't feel alone,

Or the weight of the stone,

Now that I've found somewhere safe

To bury my bone,

And any fool knows a dog needs a home,

A shelter from pigs on the wing.

Not my favorite, but these are pretty good lyrics.

 

I love you, Goodbye

 

I would never normally go bowling

On a friday morning in New Orleans

But I like to come here to remember

The kind of places you took me

Like the time we stole a Datsun

And drove all night to the everglades

Until we crashed it in a big electric storm

And stood there listening to the bayou rain

 

The county sheriff had a hair - lip

Louisiana's pride and joy

He said politley as he cuffed me

I never busted an English boy ...

But I will accept a contribution

To the Opelousas' Charity Ball

But you better drive this dirty Datsun

Into the Gulf of Mexico

 

Under a Cajun moon I lay me open

There is a spirit here that won't be broken

Some words are sad to sing

Some leave me tongue-tied

(But the hardest thing to tell you )

But the hardest words I know

Are I love you goodbye

I love you goodbye

 

Typhoon Pierre delayed my plane till morning

(Jusqu'au matin)

Let the bontemps rouler from your accordion

(L'accordien)

Under a cajun moon I lay me open

(Y a un esprit partout)

There is a spirit here that won't be broken

(Simple words are sad to sing

Some words are sad to sing

(They leave me tongue-tied)

Some leave you tongue-tied

(But the hardest thing to tell you my friend)

But the hardest words I know

(Is I love you goodbye)

Are I love you goodbye

(Je t'aime, au revoir)

I love you goodbye

(Je t'aime, toujours)

I love you, goodbye

How Does It Feel

 

 

How does it feel runnin' around round round

how does it feel watchin' from upside down

'cos many years from now there will be new sensations

and new temptations

How does it feel

 

How does it feel right at the start

and how does it feel when you are thrown apart

'cos many years from now there will be new elations

and new frustrations

 

Chorus

How does it feel? Oh! Oh!

Do you know know know what it's like to be searchin' in your own time

all your attempting experimenting all on the climb

do you know know know what it's like to be searchin' and suddenly find

all your illusion, all your confusion all left behind

 

How does it feel turnin' away

and how does it feel facing another day

'cos many years from now there will be newer poisons

and new horizons

 

'cos many years from now there will be new tomorrows

and still some sorrows
