There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - The Smiths

Image
Take me out tonight
Where there's music and there's people
And they're young and alive
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven't got one
Anymore


Take me out tonight
Because I want to see people 

And I want to see life
Driving in your car
Oh, please don't drop me home
Because it's not my home, 

It's their home, and I'm welcome no more

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine


Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere, I don't care
I don't care, I don't care
And in the darkened underpass
I thought Oh God, my chance has come at last
(But then a strange fear gripped me

And I just couldn't ask)

Take me out tonight
Oh, take me anywhere, I don't care
I don't care, I don't care
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home

Love Over Six Centuries - Eloy

Image
I'll tell you who I am and whence I came,
It's not going to be easy to explain

My body has returned, my mind is all at sea
Will you tell me who you are and where we're meant to be?
She answers in a gentle, lilting style,
Says little but speaks volumes with a smile
With a sparkle in her eye, she takes me by the hand
'Let us take a walk, I'll answer all I can.'


Jamie:
April, 1358...Paris...I don't understand any more... my name is
Jamie...and mine is a strange story... one which even I don't fully
understand...my father is a scientist... and he has been
experimenting with time-eroding drugs... I was sitting in his
workroom..it was late at night...and I was thinking... you know,
about me and my future...I've just left school...and I don't know
what I want to do...I must have somehow have taken the drug... and
landed up here.

Jeanne:
My name is Jeanne . . and let me tell you my story . . my father owns
many acres around here ... which are farmed by peasants ... whom h…

Dancing with the Moonlit Knight - Genesis

Image
"Can you tell me where my country lies?"
said the unifaun to his true love's eyes.
"It lies with me!" cried the Queen of Maybe
- for her merchandise, he traded in his prize.

"Paper late!" cried a voice in the crowd.
"Old man dies!" The note he left was signed 'Old Father Thames'
- it seems he's drowned;
selling England by the pound.

Citizens of Hope & Glory,
Time goes by - it's the 'time of your life'.
Easy now, sit you down.
Chewing through your Wimpey dreams,
they eat without a sound;
digesting england by the pound.

Young man says 'you are what you eat' - eat well.
Old man says 'you are what you wear' - wear well.
You know what you are, you don't give a damn;
bursting your belt that is your homemade sham.

The Captain leads his dance right on through the night
- join the dance ....
Follow on! Till the Grail sun sets in the mould.
Follow on! Till the gold is cold.
Dancing out with the moonlit knight,
Knights of the G…

Angellore - Tristania

Image
When summer's gone flee my angel
Winter winds they might lead you far away
Beyond the pale horizon, a greavin' silence
Over dreams to my heart yet not remain

Oh, please believe
It's in her eyesIt's inside
It's in my heart, the same relation
From which I once led astray

Oh, please believe
It's in her eyesIt's inside
It's in my heart
The same delightful placeI once felt in you

Angellore revered at dusk
For thee I rose, now descend all alone
Rise for me, soothe my heart
So wide a sea, may I overcome

Into the night strays an angel
So lost and tearful all astray

Into the night strays an angel
So lost and tearful all astray
Lo where's the pale horizon
Oh, where is dyingness
You reach for me beyond so wide a sea

Oh, please believe
It's in her eyesIt's inside
It's in my heart, the same desireI feel burning in me
Oh, please believe

It's in her eyesIt's inside
It's in my heart, the same desirefrom the empty pain within

Rise for me, soothe my heart
So wide a sea, ma…

The Logical Song - Supertramp

Image
When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,
a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily,
joyfully, playfully watching me.


But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible,
logical, responsible, practical.

And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
clinical, intellectual, cynical.


There are times when all the world's asleep,
the questions run too deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
but please tell me who I am.


Watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical,
liberal, fanatical, criminal.
Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're
acceptable, respectable, presentable, a vegetable!


At night, when all the world's asleep,
the questions run so deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
but please tell me wh…
