I Would Do Anything For Love - Meat Loaf



And I would do anything for love
I'd run right into hell and back
I would do anything for love
I'll never lie to you and that's a fact

But I'll never forget the way you feel right now--
Oh no--no way--
I would do anything for love
But I won't do that
I won't do that
Anything for love
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
But I won't do that
I won't do that

Some days it don't come easy
Some days it don't come hard
Some days it don't come at all
and these are the days that never end

Maybe I'm crazy
But it's crazy and it's true
I know you can save me
No one else can save me but you

As long as the planets are turning
As long as the stars are burning
As long as your dreams are comming true--
You better believe it!--

That I would to anything for love
And I'll be there until the final act--
I would do anything for love!
And I'll take a vow and seal a pact--

But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way--
Tonight--
I would do anything for love!
But I won't do that
I won't do that...

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of
But I just won't do that...

Some days I pray for silence
Some days I pray for soul
Some days I just pray to the God of Sex and Drums and Rock 'N Roll

Maybe I'm lonely
And that's all I'm qualified to be
There's just one and only
The one and only promise I can keep

As long as the wheels are turning
As long as the fires are burning
As long as your prayers are coming true--
You better believe it--!

That I would do anything for love!
And you know it's true and that's a fact
I would do anything for love!
And there'll never be no turning back--

But I'll never do it better than I do it with you
So long--
So long--
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
But I won't do that
I just won't do that

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of
But I won't do that...

But I'll never stop dreaming of you
Every night of my life--
No way--

I would do anything for love
But I won't do that
I won't do that!

Girl:
Will you raise me up?
Will you help me down?
Will you get me right out of this Godforsaken town?
Will you make it all a little less cold?

Boy:
I can do that!
I can do that!

Girl:
Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
Will ya hose me down with holy water, if I get to hot?
Will ya take me to places I've never known?

Boy:
I can do that!
I can do that!

Girl:
After a while you'll forget everything
It was a brief interlude
And a midsummer night's fling
And you'll see that it's time to move on

Boy:
I won't do that!
I won't do that!

Girl:
I know the territory I've been around
it will all turn to dust
and we'll all fall down
Sooner or later you'll be screwing around

Boy:
I won't do that!
No, I won't do that!

...anything for love
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
But I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Snow Cherries From France - Tori Amos

I knew a boy who would
Not share his bike
Oh but he let me go sailing
I swore that I
Could survive any storm
Oh then he let me go

"Can you launch rockets from here?"
Boy I've done it for years
Right over my head
And when I promised my hand
He promised me back
Snow Cherries from France
All that summer
We traveled the world
Never leaving his own back garden
Girls I didn't know
Just what it could be
Oh but he let me go sailing

You question me
"Can you ride anything?"
Lord do you mean like your mood swings
Invaders and Traders with
The best intentions
May convince you to go
"They look like pirates from here"
Boy I've been one for years
Just keeping my head
And when I promised my hand
You promised me back
Snow Cherries from France

All that summer
We traveled the world
Never leaving his own back garden
Girls I didn't know
Just what it could be
Oh but he let me go sailing

And then one day he said
"Girl it's been nice,
Oh but I have to go sailing"
With cinnamon lips
That did not match his eyes
Oh then he let me go

Liquid Eternity - Ayreon



[Jonas Renkse:]
Once a world, endless and free, horizons unbroken
Now a world of bounded frontiers, the elders have spoken
(our home)


[Daniel Gildenlow:]
Once a world, eternal and blue, floating, escaping
Now a world that's blinding my view, shadows shaping
(alone)


[Magali Luyten:]
Liquid eternity crosses through our veins
Liquid eternity nourishes our brains
Liquid eternity, a world that does not live
Liquid eternity, a life that does not yield


[Bob Catley:]
Once a world of fear and dismay of fleeing and hiding
Now a world that's peaceful and safe, so caring and providing,
our home...


[Magali Luyten:]
Liquid eternity crosses through our veins
Liquid eternity nourishes our brains
Liquid eternity, a world that does not live
Liquid eternity, a life that does not yield


[Tom Englund:]
Would you prefer the pain and suffering we had?
Would you prefer to be in peril, even dead?
Would you prefer to live the life we've learned to dread?
Would you prefer to live a mortal life instead?

[Jonas Renkse:] Our home

[Jorn Lande:] I'm losing my reason to live, the essence of life
[Floor Jansen:] But the system's got so much to give or would you rather die?
[Jorn Lande:] I'm losing my pride and my joy, my will to believe
[Floor Jansen:] Why would you come back and destroy all we have achieved?


[Magali Luyten:]
Liquid eternity crosses through our veins
Liquid eternity nourishes our brains
Liquid eternity, a world that does not live
Liquid eternity, a life that does not yield


[Tom Englund:]
Would you prefer the pain and suffering we had?
Would you prefer to be in peril, even dead?
Would you prefer to live the life we've loved to play?
Would you prefer to live a mortal life instead?


[Magali Luyten:]
Liquid eternity crosses through our veins
Liquid eternity nourishes our brains
Liquid eternity, a world that does not live
Liquid eternity, a life that does not yield


[Tom Englund:]
Would you prefer the pain and suffering we had?
Would you prefer to be in peril, even dead?
Would you prefer to live the life we've learned to dread?
Would you prefer to live a mortal life instead?
[Jonas Renkse:] Our home

Sober - Tool



There's a shadow just behind me,
shrouding every step I take.
Making every promise empty,
pointing every finger at me.
Waiting like a stalking butler,
who upon the finger rests.
Murder now the path of must we,
just because the son has come.

Mother Mary, won't you whisper
something but the past and done.

Why can't we not be sober?
I just want to start this over.
Why can't we sleep forever?
I just want to start this over.

I am just a worthless liar.
I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you.
Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you.
I will chew it up and leave.
I will work to elevate you,
just enough to bring you down.

Mother Mary, won't you whisper
something but the past is done.

Why can't we not be sober?
I just want to start this over.
Why can't we sleep forever?
I just want to start this over.

I am just a worthless liar.
I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you.
Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you.
I will chew it up and leave.
Trust me. trust me. trust me. trust me. trust me.

Why can't we not be sober.
I just want to start things over.
Why can't we sleep forever.
I just want to start this over.

I want what I want...
I want what I want...
I want what I want...
I want what I want...

Comfortable Liar - Chevelle



Broad, is this sea
The salt, enters the wounds
My take, on you is simple
So heal, your fear
To heal, your fear
Time, spent wading off shore
The calm, before the storm
My take, from you is simple
So heal, your fear
To heal, your fear
You're such a comfortable liar
You're such a comfortable liar
You're such a comfortable liar
You're such a comfortable liar
You're such a comfortable liar
So calm
Cause I said wrong
You comfortable liar
You comfortable liar
You comfortable liar
You comfortable liar
Liar

This Love - Pantera



If ever words were spoken
Painful and untrue
I said I loved but I lied
In my life
All I wanted
Was the keeping
Of someone like you
As it turns out
Deeper within me
Love was twisted and pointed at you

Never ending pain, it's a waste of f@$ckin' time!

You keep this love, thing, child, toy
You keep this love, fist, scar, break
You keep this love

I'd been the tempting one
Stole her from herself
This gift in pain
Her pain was life
And sometimes I feel so sorry
I regret this the hurting of you
But you make me so unhappy
I'd take my life and leave love with you

I'd kill myself for you, I'd kill you for myself --

You keep this love, thing, child, toy
You keep this love, fist, scar, break
You keep this love

No more head trips

Man of Sorrows - Bruce Dickinson



Here, in a church, a small boy is kneeling
He prays to a God he does not know, he cannot feel
All of his sins of childhood he will remember
He will not cry, tears he will not cry

Man of sorrows, I wont see your face
Man of sorrows, you left without a trace
A small boy wonders, what was it all about?
Is your journey over - has it just begun?

Vision of a new world from the ashes of the old
do what thou wilt!, he screams from his cursed soul
A tortured seer, a prophet of our emptiness
Wondering why, wondering why...

Man of sorrows, I wont see your face
(I wont see your face)
Man of sorrows, you left without a trace
A small boy wonders, what was it all about?
Is your journey over - has it just begun?

A man of sorrows, racked
With thoughts that dare not speak their name
Trapped inside a body, made to feel only guilt and shame
His anger all his life - i hate myself!, he cried
do what thou wilt!
do what thou wilt!, he cried

Man of sorrows, I wont see your face
(I wont see your face)
Man of sorrows, you left without a trace
(left without a trace)
A small boy wonders, what was it all about?
Is your journey over - has it just begun?

Man of sorrows, I wont see your face
(I wont see your face)
Man of sorrows, you left without a trace
(left without a trace)
A small boy wonders, what was it all about?
Is your journey over - has it just begun?
Has it just begun?
