We Wish You Were Here-Pink Floyd. One of my favourite lyrics :)

So, so you think you can tell

Heaven from Hell,

Blue skys from pain.

Can you tell a green field

From a cold steel rail?

A smile from a veil?

Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade

Your heros for ghosts?

Hot ashes for trees?

Hot air for a cool breeze?

Cold comfort for change?

And did you exchange

A walk on part in the war

For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.

We're just two lost souls

Swimming in a fish bowl,

Year after year,

Running over the same old ground.

What have we found?

The same old fears.

Wish you were here.

"Instead" Madeline Peryroux

This is the end, I love this song..

"Instead of feeling bad

be glad that she's there at home

She's waiting for you by the phone

So be glad that she's all your own.."

Please lock me away

And don't allow the day

Here inside, where I hide with my loneliness

I don't care what they say, I won't stay

In a world without love

Birds sing out of tune

And rain clouds hide the moon

I'm OK, here I stay with my loneliness

I don't care what they say, I won't stay

In a world without love

So I wait, and in a while

I will see my true love smile

She may come, I know not when

When she does, I'll know

So baby until then

Lock me away

And don't allow the day

Here inside, where I hide with my loneliness

I don't care what they say, I won't stay

In a world without love

Written by Lennon and McCartney

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,

bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,

brown paper packages tied up with strings,

these are a few of my favorite things.

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels,

door bells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles.

Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings.

these are a few of my favorite things.

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes,

snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes,

silver white winters that melt into springs,

these are a few of my favorite things.

When the dog bites, when the bee stings,

when I'm feeling sad,

I simply remember my favorite things,

and then I don't feel so bad.

Gone away is the bluebird,

Here to stay is a new bird

He sings a love song,

As we go along,

Walking in a winter wonderland

If I was allowed to listen to one PF song and one song only for the rest of my life, that's the one I'd pick. It's perfect. Speaking of Floyd lyrics, here are some from another great song:

Into the distance, a ribbon of black

Stretched to the point of no turning back

A flight of fancy on a windswept field

Standing alone my senses reel

A fatal attraction is holding me fast

How can I escape this irresistible grasp?

Can't keep my eyes from the circling sky

Tongue-tied and twisted just an earthbound misfit, I

Ice is forming on the tips of my wings

Unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of everything

No navigator to find my way home

Unladen, empty and turned to stone

A soul in tension, that's learning to fly

Condition grounded but determined to try

Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies

Tongue-tied and twisted just an earthbound misfit, I

Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,

My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air

Across the clouds I see my shadow fly

Out of the corner of my watering eye

A dream unthreatened by the morning light

Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night

There's no sensation to compare with this

Suspended animation, a state of bliss

Can't keep my mind from the circling skies

Tongue-tied and twisted just an earthbound misfit, I

"Well, we all need someone we can lean on

And if you want it, you can lean on me

Yeah, we all need someone we can lean on

And if you want it, you can lean on me

She said, "My breasts, they will always be open

Baby, you can rest your weary head right on me

And there will always be a space in my parking lot

When you need a little coke and sympathy"

Yeah, we all need someone we can dream on

And if you want it, baby, well you can dream on me

Yeah, we all need someone we can cream on

And if you want to, well you can cream on me

I was dreaming of a steel guitar engagement

When you drunk my health in scented jasmine tea

But you knifed me in my dirty filthy basement

With that jaded, faded, junky nurse

Oh what pleasant company

We all need someone we can feed on

And if you want it, well you can feed on me

Take my arm, take my leg, oh baby don't you take my head

Yeah, we all need someone we can bleed on

Yeah, and if you want it, baby, well you can bleed on me

Yeah, we all need someone we can bleed on

Yeah, yeah, and if you want it, baby, why don'cha bleed on me

All over

Yeah..

Ahh, get it on rider, get it on rider, get it on rider

You can bleed all over me, yeah!

Get it on rider, get it on rider, yeah!

You can cream all over, you can cum all over me, oh!

Get it on rider, get it on rider, get it on rider

You can cum all over me

Yeah!

Get it on rider, baby cum all over me

Yeah, yeah

Get it on rider...."

Begin the day with a friendly voice

A companion unobtrusive

Plays that song that's so elusive

And the magic music makes your morning mood

Off on your way, hit the open road

There is magic at your fingers

For the Spirit ever lingers

Undemanding contact in your happy solitude

Invisible airwaves crackle with life

Bright antennae bristle with the energy

Emotional feedback on timeless wavelength

Bearing a gift beyond price, almost free

All this machinery making modern music

Can still be open hearted

Not so coldly charted

It's really just a question of your honesty, yeah

Your honesty

One likes to believe in the freedom of music

But glittering prizes and endless compromises

Shatter the illusion of integrity

Invisible airwaves crackle with life

Bright antennae bristle with the energy

Emotional feedback on timeless wavelength

Bearing a gift beyond price, almost free

For the words of the prophets were written on the studio wall

Concert hall

And echoes with the sounds of salesmen

of salesmen

of salesmen

As sung by Rush

Songwriters: Lee, Geddy;Lifeson, Alex;Peart, Neil

I love this song so much! :wub: And speaking of Rush songs:

There are those who think that life has nothing left to chance take,

A host of holy horrors to direct our aimless dance.

A planet of playthings,

We dance on the strings

Of powers we cannot perceive

"The stars aren't aligned,

Or the gods are malign..."

Blame is better to give than receive.

Chorus

You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice.

If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill;

I will choose a path that's clear

I will choose freewill.

There are those who think that they were dealt a losing hand,

The cards were stacked against them; they weren't born in Lotusland.

All preordained

A prisoner in chains

A victim of venomous fate.

Kicked in the face,

You can't pray for a place

In heaven's unearthly estate.

Chorus

Each of us

A cell of awareness

Imperfect and incomplete.

Genetic blends

With uncertain ends

On a fortune hunt that's far too fleet.

Chorus

I got nasty habits, I take tea at three

Yes, and the meat I eat for dinner

Must be hung up for a week

My best friend, he shoots water rats

And feeds them to his geese

Don'cha think there's a place for you

In between the sheets?

Come on now, honey

We can build a home for three

Come on now, honey

Don't you wanna live with me?

And there's a score of harebrained children

They're all locked in the nursery

They got earphone heads they got dirty necks

They're so 20th century

Well they queue up for the bathroom

'Round about 7:35

Don'cha think we need a woman's touch to make it come alive?

You'd look good pram pushing

Down the high street

Come on now, honey

Don't you wanna live with me?

Whoa, the servants they're so helpful, dear

The cook she is a whore

Yes,
