I'm Still Standing - Elton John



You could never know what it's like
Your blood like winter freezes just like ice
And there's a cold lonely light that shines from you
You'll wind up like the wreck you hide behind that mask you use


And did you think this fool could never win
Well look at me, I'm coming back again
I got a taste of love in a simple way
And if you need to know while i'm still standing you just fade away


Don't you know I'm still standing better than i ever did
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid
I'm still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind


I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah
I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah


Once i never could hope to win
You starting down the road leaving me again
The threats you made were meant to cut me down
And if our love was just a circus you'd be a clown by now

Point of View - Fates Warning



Looking out on a familiar scene
There's no agreement in what we see
Your perception lacks clarity
And my perspective is blinding me
Side by side
Divided they stand

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side

Caught up in our convictions we forget
How our senses distort things we see
We can't accept our differences
But we can always disagree
Side by side
Divided they stand

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side

Where I stand is not so far from YOU
A different opinion is just another point of view

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side

Bad Day - R.E.M.




A public service announcement followed me home the other day
I paid it nevermind. Go away.
Shit so thick you could stir with a stick- free Teflon whitewashed presidency
We're sick of being jerked around
Wear that on your sleeve


Broadcast me a joyful noise unto the times, lord,
Count your blessings
We're sick of being jerked around
We all fall down


Have you ever seen the televised St. Vitus subcommittee prize
Investigation dance? Those-ants-in-pants glances
Well, look behind the eyes
It's a hallowed, hollow anesthetized
"Save my own ass, screw these guys"
Smoke and mirror lock down


Broadcast me a joyful noise unto the times, lord,
Count your blessings
The papers wouldn't lie!
I sigh. Not one more


It's been a bad day
Please don't take a picture
It's been a bad day
Please


We're dug in the deep the price is steep
The auctioneer is such a creep
The lights went out, the oil ran dry
We blamed it on the other guy


Sure, all men are created equal
Here's the church, here's the steeple
Please stay tuned--we cut to sequel
Ashes, ashes, we all fall down


Broadcast me a joyful noise unto the times, lord, Count your blessings
Ignore the lower fears
Ugh, this means war


It's been a bad day
Please don't take a picture
It's been a bad day
Please


Broadcast me a joyful noise unto the times, lord,
Count your blessings
We're sick of being jerked around
We all fall down


It's been a bad day
Please don't take a picture
It's been a bad day
Please

That's When I Reach For My Revolver - Moby



Once I had my heroes
Once I had my dreams
But all of that is changed now
The truth begins again
The truth is not that comfortable, no


Mother taught us patience
The virtues of restraint
Father taught us boundaries
The knowledge we must go
I'm trying to protect my unity

 
That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
The spirit passes by this way


A friend of mine once told me
His one and only aim
To build a giant castle
And in it sign his name
Sign it with complete community


That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
The spirit passes by this way


Now that the sky is empty
And that is nothing new
Instead they look upon us
When they tell me
That we're nothing
I say!


That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
The spirit passes by this way


That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
The spirit passes by this way

Hurt - Johnny Cash

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real 

The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything


What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end

And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt


I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair

Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here


What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end

And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt


If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

Did It All For Love - Phenomena



Like a flame you touched my life
Felt so good felt so right
Time goes fast love grows slow
It's so hard to let go

I'll remember, I'll remember
Now I've got to go
I'll remember, I'll remember
Oh I love you so

You gave so much, didn't ask why
I can't explain so please don't cry
We took the chances, broke the line
Now we're running out of time

We shot the dice
Played the game
Did it all for love
Do it all again

We shot the dice
Played the game
Did it all for love
Do it all again

Oh so much I want to say
Now it's time to go away
Now forever you're with me (yet)
You're in my soul, I won't forget

Θάλασσες - ΝΑΜΑ



Θα θυμάμαι με τον ήλιο το πρωί
Πως ήσουν κάποτε για μένα της μέρας το φως

 
Θα θυμάμαι με τον ήχο της βροχής
Πως όταν έφυγες μια μέρα έκλαψε κι ο ουρανός


Μη ρωτάς, λοιπόν, για μένα
Μη γυρνάς στα περασμένα
Εγώ για σένα

 
Κι αν τραγούδια θα γράψω
Κι αν θάλασσες κλάψω
Για σένα

Πίσω δε θα γυρίσω
Φιλιά να ζητήσω
Χαμένα


Θα θυμάμαι πως οι όμορφες στιγμές
Έχουν χαθεί για μας στο χθες
Και δε θα ‘ρθουν ξανά


Θα θυμάμαι πως οι αγάπες οι παλιές
Είναι καράβια που γυρίζουν
Απ’ το πουθενά

 
Μη ρωτάς, λοιπόν, για μένα
Μη γυρνάς στα περασμένα
Εγώ για σένα


Κι αν τραγούδια θα γράψω
Κι αν θάλασσες κλάψω
Για σένα


Πίσω δε θα γυρίσω
Φιλιά να ζητήσω
Χαμένα
