With the talk of comets and space dust and other things around here, I'm thinking about the old Carpenters song - "Close To You" -

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Every time you walk by?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

On the day that you were born
The angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon-dust
In your hair of gold
And starlight in your eyes of blue

That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

[break]

On the day that you were born
The angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon-dust
In your hair of gold
And starlight in your eyes of blue

That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

(Ah, aahh, aahh) Close to you
(Ah, aahh, aahh) Close to you
(Ah, aahh, aahh) Close to you
(Ah, aahh, aahh) Close to you

One more Carpenter Song, Lyrics this time

The Great Musician
can play a melody
on your heart strings,
that is far more beautiful
than any you've ever heard
with your natural ear.
With great fruition,
He'll fill your soul with His
sweet love divine.
You will sing
and dance
and shout
and tell the world about
this Savior so dear.

Words and Music by Marjorie Reece
(c) 1998 by Touching Jesus Ministries

this whole sound track is just great. I am a man, and masculinity is part of me that MACHO man thing is important to me. Love and protection. That's a mans job not being judged by $$, its all about making her feel safe...

Not all is what it appears to be. Yet we manage.

For Susi

by Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver - "I'll Be With You" -

...Far across these high mountains
where the wild geese do fly
and upon one of them someday
is where I shall die.
There my soul will leave my body
like a hawk on the wing
I'll never see your smile again
or listen to you sing...
But I'll be with you
when the sun shall rise
I'll smile again
on you my friend...

Now believe me when I tell you
when the wind sighs and moans
across these high mountains
that you are walking on
ancient words that were spoken
are there for us to see
I hope they make you smile again
like daylight through the leaves...
But I'll be with you
when the sun shall rise,
I'll smile again
on you my friend.
But I'll be with you
when the sun shall rise
I'll smile again
on you my friend.

The Woman In Me
(Needs The Man In You)

I'm not always strong
And sometimes I'm even wrong
But I win when I choose
And I can't stand to lose
But I can't always be }
The rock that you see
When the nights get too long
And I just can't go on

The woman in me
Needs you to be
The man in my arms
To hold tenderly
Cause I'm a woman in love
And it's you I run to
Yeah the woman in me
Needs the man in you

When the world wants too much
And it feels cold and out of touch
It's a beautiful place
When you kiss my face

The woman in me
Needs you to be
The man in my arms
To hold tenderly
Cause I'm a woman in love
And it's you I run to
Yeah the woman in me
Needs the man in you

Yeah the woman in me
Needs the man in you

I need you baby
Yeah yeah Oh baby...

Performed By Shania Twain
"I know I did not come here
to be comfortable but to grow"..

Eye,

Thank you ..Eye in the Sky is one of my all time favorite songs. This guy Humphries that sings and plays "Sorry don't mean nothing".this song is so good. I just want to keep it. I was in an angry mood and this music calmed me down.

Rogers and Hart wrote a song back in the 1930's called "My Funny Valentine". For years, I thought it was a really dorky, overly-sentimental song. Then, one day I bought a CD of Ella Fitzgerald's recordings and this song took on a whole new meaning. Her voice turns it into a very poignant love song.


Behold the way our fine feathered friend,
His virtue doth parade
Thou knowest not, my dim-witted friend
The picture thou hast made
Thy vacant brow, and thy tousled hair
Conceal thy good intent
Thou noble upright truthful sincere,
And slightly dopey gent

You're my funny valentine,
Sweet comic valentine,
You make me smile with my heart.
Your looks are laughable, un-photographable,
Yet, you're my favorite work of art.

Is your figure less than Greek?
Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak, are you smart?
But, don't change a hair for me.
Not if you care for me.
Stay little valentine, stay!
Each day is Valentine's Day

Is your figure less than Greek?
Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak, are you smart?
But, don't change a hair for me.
Not if you care for me.
Stay little valentine, stay!
Each day is Valentine's Day

Star,

This is my day for songs. I love this and its one of my tunes I get real emotional with when I play it on piano. By the time I sing "stay little valentine stay" I get a lump in my throat and the tears flow....weird about that song.

"My Funny Valentine" gets to the heart of it all---loving someone's very spirit without regard for packaging and totally accepting them as they are.

It is about how we all wish to love, and be loved in returned; and Mama I also get a lump in my throat every time I hear it.

"Circle of Life" Elton John

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done

Some say eat or be eaten
Some say live and let live
But all are agreed as they join the stampede
You should never take more than you give

(Chorus)
In the Circle of Life
It's the wheel of fortune
It's the leap of faith
It's the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle, the Circle of Life

Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars

There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps the great and small on the endless round

(Chorus repeats)

On the path unwinding
In the Circle, the Circle of Life.

Elton John - Can You Feel the Love Tonight

There's a calm surrender
To the rush of day
When the heat of the rolling world
Can be turned away
An enchanted moment
And it sees me through
It's enough for this restless warrior
Just to be with you

(Chorus)
And can you feel the love tonight?
It is where we are
It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
That we got this far
And can you feel the love tonight
How it's laid to rest?
It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

There's a time for everyone
If they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope
Moves us all in turn
There's a rhyme and reason
To the wild outdoors
When the heart of this star-crossed voyager
Beats in time with yours

(Chorus)
And can you feel the love tonight?
It is where we are
It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
That we got this far
And can you feel the love tonight
How it's laid to rest?
It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

Im still young, but I know my days are numbered
1234567 and so on
But a time will come when these numbers have all ended
And all Ive ever seen will be forgotten


Wont you come
To my funeral when my days are done
Lifes not long
And so I hope when I am finally dead and gone
That youll gather round when I am lowered into the ground


When my coffin is sealed and Im safely 6 feet under
Perhaps my friends will see fit then to judge me
Oh when they pause to consider all my blunders
I hope they wont be too quick to begrudge me


Wont you come
To my funeral when my days are done
Lifes not long
And so I hope when I am finally dead and gone
That youll gather round when I am lowered into the ground


If I should die before I wake up
I pray that the lord my soul will take but
My body, my body - thats your job


Well I cant be sure where Im headed after death
To heaven, hell, or beyond to that great vast
But if I can I would like to meet my maker
Theres one or two things Id sure like to ask


Wont you come
To my funeral when my days are done
Lifes not long
And so I hope when I am finally dead and gone
That youll gather round when I am lowered into the ground




--At My Funeral by Crash Test Dummies
I can't dislike you, but I will say this to you. You haven't got long before you are all going to kill yourselves because you are all crazy.

Charles Manson

Fortwynt, that song hits on a huge "mark" for me today, while I am struggling with the seeming contradictions of "unconditional love" and "tough love".

I will have to go to YouTube and look for a video of this song.

I just read that Dan Fogelberg has died.

The Leader of the Band

An only child
Alone and wild
A cabinet makers son
His hands were meant
For different work
And his heart was known
To none --
He left his home
And went his lone
And solitary way
And he gave to me
A gift I know I never
Can repay

A quiet man of music
Denied a simpler fate
He tried to be a soldier once
But his music wouldnt wait
He earned his love
Through discipline
A thundering, velvet hand
His gentle means of sculpting souls
Took me years to understand.

The leader of the band is tired
And his eyes are growing old
But his blood runs through
My instrument
And his song is in my soul --
My life has been a poor attempt
To imitate the man
Im just a living legacy
To the leader of the band.

My brothers lives were
Different
For they heard another call
One went to chicago
And the other to st. paul
And Im in colorado
When Im not in some hotel
Living out this life Ive chose
And come to know so well.

I thank you for the music
And your stories of the road
I thank you for the freedom
When it came my time to go --
I thank you for the kindness
And the times when you got tough
And, pap, I dont think i
Said i love you near enough --

The leader of the band is tired
And his eyes are growing old
But his blood runs through
My instrument
And his song is in my soul --
My life has been a poor attempt
To imitate the man
Im just a living legacy
To the leader of the band
I am the living legacy
To the leader of the band.


Here's a video of Dan performing.

OMG. I am sad, sad, sad to hear of this. I have not had the TV on at all today for the past 24 hours, so I had not heard about it.

Dan's music meant so much to me, as it did to so MANY people. I still, to this day, cannot listen to certain of his songs without crying.

I was blessed to see him in concert in Phoenix at the Celebrity Theatre, in about 1996 or 1997.

It was "luck" (and determination) that I even knew that he was playing while I was there visiting my father, but I will never forget it. It was just him and his guitars and piano. The theatre was small, intimate, "in-the-round", and I sat less than 30 feet from him.

Here is my favorite Fogelberg song:

Dancing Shoes

Rest in peace, Dan. You touched many hearts.
"In the end, only kindness matters."

This song has been running through my head for 4 days now and why, I don't know. I didn't hear it on the radio or anything. Just an old melody that wants me to post it...ha ha..guess I will.

another Dan Fogelberg song. I have this on an old 45.
It seems appropriate for this time of year...

"Same Old Lang Syne"

Met my old lover in the
grocery store
The snow was falling Christmas Eve
I stole behind her in the
frozen foods
And I touched her on the sleeve
She didn't recognize the
face at first
But then her eyes flew
open wide
She went to hug me and she
spilled her purse
And we laughed until we cried.
We took her groceries to the
checkout stand
The food was totalled up and
bagged
We stood there lost in our
embarrassment
As the conversation dragged.
We went to have ourselves
a drink or two
But couldn't find an open bar
We bought a six-pack at
the liquor store
And we drank it in her car.
We drank a toast to
innocence
We drank a toast to now
And tried to reach beyond
the emptiness
But neither one knew how.
She said she'd married her
an architect
Who kept her warm and safe
and dry
She would have liked to say she
loved the man
But she didn't like to lie.
I said the years had been a
friend to her
And that her eyes were still
as blue
But in those eyes I wasn't
sure if I saw
Doubt or gratitude.
She said she saw me in the
record stores
And that I must be doing well
I said the audience was
heavenly
But the traveling was hell.
We drank a toast to
innocence
We drank a toast to now
And tried to reach beyond
the emptiness
But neither one knew how.
We drank a toast to innocence
We drank a toast to time
Reliving in our eloquence
Another 'auld lang syne'...
The beer was empty and our
tongues were tired
And running out of things to say
She gave a kiss to me as I got out
And I watched her drive away.
Just for a moment I was
back at school
And felt that old familiar pain
And as I turned to make
my way back home
The snow turned into rain --

Silent Night

Theres a pine tree in a window
in a house on a hill
With a tree top angel sitting
perfectly still
Shes watching the shoppers walk
through the snow
With their arms full of treasures
and hearts all aglow

Chorus:
We held hands and stared at the lights on the tree
As if christmas was invented for you and for me
When the angel on the treetop requested a song
We sang silent night all day long

Theres a family thats gathered
in some living room
Dinner on the table thats been
cooking since noon
Stockings on the mantle are
hanging with care
While every body is saying a prayer

Repeat chorus

Theres a room out there somewhere
with a woman in a chair
With memories of childhood still
lingering there.
How pretty the paper, the lights
and the snow.
How precious those memories of
long long ago.

Repeat chorus

When the angel on the treetop
requested a song.We sang silent
night all day long


John Prine
We are our infinite

Christmas in Prison

It was christmas in prison
And the food was real good
We had turkey and pistols
Carved out of wood
And I dream of her always
Even when I dont dream
Her names on my tongue
And her bloods in my stream.

Chorus:
Wait awhile eternity
Old mother natures got
nothing on me..Come to me
Run to me Come to me, now
Were rolling My sweetheart
Were flowing By god!

She reminds me of a chess game
With someone I admire
Or a picnic in the rain
After a prairie fire
Her heart is as big
As this whole goddaRn jail
And shes sweeter than saccharine
At a drug store sale.

Chorus:

Lyrics J.Prine
We are our infinite

How Far is Heaven :-)

How far is heaven?
Let's go tonight, I want my daddy to hold me tight.

A little girl was waiting for her daddy one day
It was time to meet him, when she heard her mommy say
Come to mommy darling, please do not cry
Daddy's gone to heaven, way up in the sky

How far is heaven?
When can I go?
To see my daddy, he's there I know.
How far is heaven?
Let's go tonight.
I want my daddy to hold me tight.

He was called so suddenly, and could not say goodbye
I know that he's in heaven, we'll meet him by and by
The little girl trembled, her tears she could not hide
she looked up for heaven and then she replied

How far is heaven?
When can I go?
To see my daddy, he's there I know.
How far is heaven?
Let's go tonight
I want my daddy

My apologies if this has been posted before - I just got this CD for Christmas...very good & moving, it's got me all sad and wistful...

The Story - Brandi Carlile

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true...I was made for you

I climbed across the mountain tops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But baby I broke them all for you
Because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
You do
I was made for you

You see the smile that's on my mouth
It's hiding the words that don't come out
And all of my friends who think that I'm blessed
They don't know my head is a mess
No, they don't know who I really am
And they don't know what
I've been through like you do
And I was made for you...

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true...I was made for you

Sure, it's completely vapid...but true:

J. Geils - Love Stinks (abridged version)

You love her
But she loves him
And he loves somebody else
You just can't win
And so it goes
Till the day you die
This thing they call love
It's gonna make you cry
I've had the blues
The reds and the pinks
One thing for sure

(Love stinks)

etc.

This one is deeply touching, IMO - you may have heard it on the soundtrack to Donnie Darko & Shrek:

Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen
(covered by Jeff Buckley, Rufus Wainwright, kd lang, etc)

I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty
in the moonlight
overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne,
she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe I've been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time you'd let me know
What's real and going on below
But now you never show it to me do you?
Remember when I moved in you?
The holy dark was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there's a God above
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
It's not a cry you can hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak for You)

Recorded by many, but my preference is the original by The Isley Brothers. I dearly love this song...it makes me laugh, it makes me cry... it makes me want to sing along and dance...what can I say?

This old heart of mine been broke a thousand times
Each time you break away I feel you're gone to stay
Lonely nights that come, memories that flow
Bringin' ya back again, hurting me more and more

Maybe it's my mistake to show this love I feel inside
'cause each day that passes by
Ya got me never knowin' if I'm comin' or goin' but I

I love you-ou-ou, yes, I do
This old heart (ooh) darlin' is weak for you
I love you-ou-ou, yes, I do

These old arms of mine miss having you around
Makes these tears inside start falling down
Always with half a kiss you remind me of what I miss
Though I try to control myself
Like a fool I start grinnin' cause my head starts spinning.

I love you-ou-ou, yes, I do
This old heart (ooh) darlin' is weak for you
I love you-ou-ou, yes, I do
Yes I do

I try hard to hide my hurt inside
This old heart of mine always keep me cryin'
The way you're treatin' me leaves me incomplete
You're here for the day, gone for the week

But if you leave me a hundred times
A hundred times I'll take you back
I'm yours whenever you want me
I'm not too proud to shout it, tell the world about it 'cause

I love you-ou-ou
This old heart (this old heart) is weak for you
I love you-ou-ou
This old heart (this old heart) is weak for you
I love you-ou-ou
This old heart (this old heart) is weak for you

Ok not a "song" but a poem I've always loved, which inspired a short story by a most famous writer.

---


There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground,
And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;
And frogs in the pool singing at night,
And wild plum trees in tremulous white;
Robins will wear their feathery fire,
Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire;
And not one will know of the war, not one
Will care at last when it is done.
Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree,
If mankind perished utterly;
And Spring herself when she woke at dawn
Would scarcely know that we were gone.


"There Will Come Soft Rains"
by Sara Teasdale

A song on my little girls (backyardigans) toy:


The Tower of Power is very tall
and up in the top is the Key...
We'll find it and grab it
and keep it and have it,
and rule the world
You and Me.

Sad Songs :-)

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin

Guess there are times when we all need to share a little pain
And ironing out the rough spots
Is the hardest part when memories remain
And it's times like these when we all need to hear the radio
`Cause from the lips of some old singer
We can share the troubles we already know

Turn them on, turn them on
Turn on those sad songs
When all hope is gone
Why don't you tune in and turn them on

They reach into your room
Just feel their gentle touch
When all hope is gone
Sad songs say so much

If someone else is suffering enough to write it down
When every single word makes sense
Then it's easier to have those songs around
The kick inside is in the line that finally gets to you
and it feels so good to hurt so bad
And suffer just enough to sing the blues

Sad songs, they say
Sad songs, they say
Sad songs, they say
Sad songs, they say so much
a we n' de yauh ho. eh

TY, buddie.


Ah, yes.....sad songs......so often, nothing else will do, huh?


----------

Anybody who is an Eagles fan, and who hasn't done so yet, go and get a copy of Long Road Out Of Eden. It is an absolutely killer album; 2 CDs, tons of music, and not a single bad song on it. Every time I listen to it, I like it more.

Here are a couple of selections - the opening song, and the title song:

No More Walks In The Wood



and


Long Road Out Of Eden




Moon shining down through the palms
Shadows moving on the sand
Somebody whispering the twenty-third Psalm
Dusty rifle in his trembling hands
Somebody trying just to stay alive
He got promises to keep
Over the ocean in America
Far away and fast asleep.

Silent stars blinking in the blackness of an endless sky
Cold silver satellites, ghostly caravans passing by
Galaxies unfolding; new worlds being born
Pilgrims and prodigals creeping toward the dawn
But it's a long road out of Eden.

Music blasting from an SUV
On a bright and sunny day
Rolling down the interstate
In the good ol' USA
Having lunch at the petroleum club
Smoking fine cigars and swapping lies
"Gimme 'nother slice of that barbecued brisket!"
"Gimme 'nother piece of that pecan pie"

Freeways flickering, cell phones chiming a tune
We're riding to Utopia; road map says we'll be arriving soon
Captains of the old order clinging to the reins
Assuring us these aches inside are only growing pains
But it's a long road out of Eden

Back home, I was so certain; the path was very clear
But now I have to wonder - what are we doing here?
I'm not counting on tomorrow and I can't tell wrong from right
But I'd give anything to be there in your arms tonight

Weaving down the American highway
Through the litter and the wreckage, and the cultural junk
Bloated with entitlement, loaded on propaganda
Now we're driving dazed and drunk

Went down the road to Damascus, the road to Mandalay
Met the ghost of Caesar on the Appian Way
He said, "It's hard to stop this bingeing once you get a taste
But the road to empire is a bloody, stupid waste"

Behold the bitten apple - the power of the tools
But all the knowledge in the world is of no use to fools
And it's a long road out of Eden

"In the end, only kindness matters."

I'm pining for warm weather.......




April come she will
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain

May, she will stay
Resting in my arms again

June, she'll change her tune
In restless walks she'll prowl the night
July, she will fly
And give no warning to her flight

August, die she must
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold
September I'll remember
A love once new has now grown old


(Simon & Garfunkel)

Ahhhh, Buffet!!!

I was listening to some music yesterday, and *almost* pulled out the Buffet cassettes!!

But I got sidetracked.....by The Soggy Bottom Boys!

Ended up listening to the entire soundtrack CD, and never got around to Buffet!

Admit it, you have sung the wrong words to a song for years until you got on the net and read the lyrics. Lucky for you, no one else knew what the heck they were singing in the first place.

Crosby Stills and Nash with that hit song "Wooden Chips On the Water" Or this song which is worth a laugh for all of you who thought you gnu but didn't....

Reminds me of my mom back in the late 70s or early 80s. We were goin down the road in the car and the song "Take it to the Limit" by the Eagles was on the radio and she was singing "Take it to the Linens". I said "mom, what do you think that song means?" and she said "it all comes out in the wash?" I said "no mom" and we just kept on down the road with her singing it.

I get a kick out of "mis-heard lyrics", too.

One of my anal-retentive (according to some who know me) tendencies is to have ALWAYS been obsessed with lyrics.

This dates back to age 5, when I heard an instrumental version of "Unchained Melody", and was sobbing over it.....so my parents taught me the lyrics.

I always wondered why people didn't just read the lyrics on the albums....

but then, I realize that the average person (?) doesn't really care that much!

I am so glad that there are those who do care about the lyrics! That's why I love this thread.....the words are IMPORTANT.







Buddie, I have the movie on video, as well. I still love it!!!

"Us"

Regina Spektor

They made a statue of us
And it put it on a mountain top
Now tourists come and stare at us
Blow bubbles with their gum
Take photographs for fun, for fun

They'll name a city after us
And later say it's all our fault
Then they'll give us a talking to
Then they'll give us a talking to
Because they've got years of experience
We're living in a den of thieves
Rummaging for answers in the pages
We're living in a den of thieves
And it's contagious
And it's contagious
And it's contagious
And it's contagious

We wear our scarves just like a noose
But not 'cause we want eternal sleep
And though our parts are slightly used
New ones are slave labor you can keep

We're living in a den of thieves
Rummaging for answers in the pages
We're living in a den of thieves
And it's contagious
And it's contagious
And it's contagious
And it's contagious

They made a statue of us
They made a statue of us
The tourists come and stare at us
The sculptor's marble sends regards
They made a statue of us
They made a statue of us
Our noses have begun to rust
We're living in a den of thieves
Rummaging for answers in the pages
Were living in a den of thieves

And it's contagious
And it's contagious
And it's contagious
And it's contagious
And it's contagious
And it's contagious
And it's contagious
And it's contagious

I want to
I want to be someone else or I'll explode
Floating upon the surface for the birds
The birds
The birds
You want me
F*cking well come and find me
I'll be waiting
With a gun and a pack of sandwiches
And nothing
Nothing
Nothing
Nothing
You want me
Well come on and break the door down
You want me
F*cking come on and break the door down
I'm ready
I'm ready
I'm ready
I'm ready
I'm ready

Just feel like posting a fave to
sooth the psyche.

I have always been a Sting fan, and thanks to this thread, I have become a Chris Botti fan! Thank you!


It soothed my psyche as well, and allowed me to take a breather.

However, I still feel like letting my freak-flag fly!

(I will now proceed to entangle the entire area!)

Almost cut my hair
It happened just the other day
It's gettin' kinda long
I could've said it was in my way

But I didn't and I wonder why
I feel like letting my freak flag fly
Guess I feel like I owe it to someone.

Must be because I had the flu for Christmas
And I'm not feeling up to par
It increases my paranoia
Like looking in my mirror and seeing a police car

But I'm not, I'm not giving in an inch to fear
Cause I've promised myself this year
I feel like I owe it to someone

When I finally get myself together
I'm gonna get down in that sunny southern weather
And I'll find a place and settle there
And separate the wheat from some chaff
I feel like I owe it to someone, yeah.
Um hmm.

I don't need to be anything other than a prison guard's son
I don't need to be anything other than a specialist's son
I don't have to be anyone other than a birth of two souls in one
Part of where I'm going, is knowing where I'm coming from

I don't want to be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me

I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by imposters everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by an identity crisis everywhere I turn
Am I the only one who noticed?
I can't be the only one who's learned

I don't want to be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think about me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me

Can I have everyone's attention please?
If you're not like this and that, you're gonna have to leave?
I came from the mountain, the crust of creation
My whole situation - made from clay to stone
And now I'm telling everybody

I don't want to be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I'm trying to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me
I don't want to be
