I'm sitting here in the boring room
It's just another rainy Sunday afternoon
I'm wasting my time
I got nothing to do
I'm hanging around
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I'm driving around in my car
I'm driving too fast
I'm driving too far
I'd like to change my point of view
I feel so lonely
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree

I'm sitting here
I miss the power
I'd like to go out taking a shower
But there's a heavy cloud inside my head
I feel so tired
Put myself into bed
Well, nothing ever happens and I wonder

Isolation is not good for me
Isolation I don't want to sit on the lemon-tree

I'm steppin' around in the desert of joy
Baby anyhow I'll get another toy
And everything will happen and you wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
And I wonder, wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see, and all that I can see, and all that I can see
Is just a yellow lemon-tree

"Lemon Tree"
Dish of the Day
Fool's Garden

Somewhere there's somebody who looks just like you do,
acts just like you do.. feels the same way..
Somwehre there's a person in a far away place,
with a different name and a face that looks like you...

Do ya think about who it might be?
Do ya wonder where you are?
In a distant foreign country,
Ridin' round in another car.

Wheels keep on turning and turning and turning
and nothings disturbing the way they go around.

/me pulls out the defibrillator

Old man lying by the side of the road with the lorries rolling by,
Blue moon sinking from the weight of the load, and the buildings scrape the sky,
Cold wind ripping down the alley at dawn and the morning paper flies,
Dead man lying by the side of the road with the daylight in his eyes:

Don't let it bring you down,
It's only castles burning,
Find someone who's turning
And you will come around.

Blind man running through the light of the night with an answer in his hand,
Come on down to the river of sight and you can really understand,
Red lights flashing through the window in the rain - can you hear the sirens moan?
White cane lying in a gutter in the lane, if you're walking home alone:

Don't let it bring you down
It's only castles burning,
Just find someone who's turning
And you will come around.

etc.

Don't Let It Bring You Down - Neil Young

Pay no attention to the writing on the wall
The words seem empty cause theres nothing there at all
We let the wise men beat the drums too soon
We were just children of the moon

No one to turn to
Nowhere to run to even if we could
Too late to save us but try to understand
The seas were empty there was hunger in the land

We let the blind man lead the way too long
Easy to see where we went wrong
Nothing to live for
Nothing to die for
Were lost in the middle of a hopeless world
Lost in the middle of a hopeless world

Children children of the moon watch the world go by
Children children of the moon are hiding from the sun and the sky
Children children of the moon watch it all go by
Children children of the moon are blinded by the light in their eyes

No one to turn to
Nowhere to run to even if we could
Follow the pilgrim to the temple of the dawn
The altars empty and the sacrifice is gone
We let the madmen write the golden rules
We were no more than mortal fools

Nothing to live for
Nothing to die for
Were lost in the middel of a hopeless world
Lost in the middle of a hopeless world
Children children of the moon watch the world go by
Children children of the moon hiding from the sky

"Children of the Moon"

PS: I've recently told someone about it, which reminded me. Did I mention I actually had a little talk with the giant who goes by the name Parsons last September? He's such a cool guy. :)

I'm listening to all sorts of old songs right now of which I know the lyrics by heart, and unless someone posts a reply I may damn well never find a use for that. :P

If you're troubled and you can't relax,
Close your eyes -- think on this.
If the rumors floating in your head all turn to facts,
Close your eyes and think of this:

Armenia, city in the sky!
Armenia, city in the sky!


If you ever want to lose some time,
Just take off, there's no risk!
If you ever want to disappear
Just take off, and think of this:

Armenia, city in the sky!
Armenia, city in the sky!

The sky is glass, the sea is brown,
And everyone is upside-down!

Armenia, city in the sky!
Armenia, city in the sky!

Armenia City in the Sky - The Who

Ouch. You're right.

There's a lady who's sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook
There's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven
It makes me wonder

There's a feeling I get
When I look to the west
and my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who stand looking
And it makes me wonder

And it's whispered that soon
If we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn
For those who stand long
And the forest will echo with laughter

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow
Don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean for the May queen
Yes there are two paths you can go by
But in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on
And it makes me wonder

Your head is humming and it won't go
In case you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady can you hear the wind blow
And did you know
Your stairway lies on the whisperin' wind

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our souls
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll

And she's buying a stairway to heaven...

"Stairway to Heaven"

Ooh baby, do you know what that's worth?
Ooh heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We'll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth...

When the night falls down
I wait for you
And you come around
And the world's alive
With the sound of kids
On the street outside

When you walk into the room
You pull me close and we start to move
And we're spinning with the stars above
And you lift me up in a wave of love...

Ooh baby, do you know what that's worth?
Ooh heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We'll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth

When I feel alone
I reach for you
And you bring me home
When I'm lost at sea
I hear your voice
And it carries me

In this world we're just beginning
To understand the miracle of living
Baby I was afraid before
But I'm not afraid anymore

Ooh baby, do you know what that's worth?
Ooh heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We'll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth...

In this world we're just beginning
To understand the miracle of living
Baby I was afraid before
But I'm not afraid anymore

Ooh baby, do you know what that's worth?
Ooh heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We'll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth

Ooh, heaven is a place on earth
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth

song: heaven is a place on earth
artist: belinda carlisle

not sure how exactly lyric wars work but i think this beats stairway to heaven, since if heaven is a place on earth you don't need a stairway.
Am I doing this right ?

Once more I'll say goodbye to you
Things happen, but we don't really know why
if it's supposed to be like this
why do most of us ignore the chance to miss
oh yeah

Torn apart at the seams as my dreams turn to tears
I'm not feeling the situation
Run away try to find that safe place you can hide
It's the best place to be when you're feeling like


Me! (Me)
Yeah! (Yeah)
All these things I hate revolve around Me! (Me)
Yeah! (Yeah)
Just back off before i snap

Once more you tell those lies to me
Why can't you just be straight up with honesty (honesty,honesty)
When you say those things in my ear
Why do you always tell me what you wanna hear (wana hear,wanna hear)
oh yeah (yeah!)

Wear your heart on your sleeve make things hard to believe
I'm not feeling the situation
Run away try to find that safe place you can hide
It's the best place to be when you're feeling like

Me! (Me)
Yeah! (Yeah)
All these things I hate revolve around me (Me)
Yeah! (Yeah)
Just back off before I snap and you'll see! (me)
Me! (Me)
All these things I hate revolve around me (Me)
Yeah! (Yeah)
Just back off before I snap

Torn apart at the seams as my dreams turn to tears
I'm not feeling the situation
Run away try to find that safe place you can hide
It's the best place to be when you're feeling like me
(it's the best place to be when you're!)

Me! (Me)
Yeah! (Yeah)
All these things I hate revolve around me (Me)
Yeah! (Yeah)
Just back off before I snap and you'll see (Me)
Me! (Me)
All these things I hate revolve around me (Me)
Yeah! (Yeah)
Just back off before I snap

One stupid spelling mistake does not make you look like an idiot. All the other things do. [size=0]Sorry -- couldn't resist. If it helps you any, Wendryn says the same thing to me all the time.[/size]

My house burned down in a pile of smoke
I lost my job, and now I'm broke
But I'm alright, I'm feelin alright

My dog ran away, never said goodbye
My car won't start, and I don't know why
And I'm alright, I'm feelin alright

My lava lamp went up in flames
My girlfriend done forgot my name
And that's alright, it's alright

Don't get down by your circumstance
Just let it go, get up and dance
'Cuz you're alright, you're alright
