There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - The Smiths



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
Because I haven't got one...
Oh, I haven't got one


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


Oh, There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out

Love Over Six Centuries - Eloy




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 he
rules with an iron hand .. the neighboring landlord's even worse
... and I'm supposed to marry his son ... That's not my choice, you
know the saying, 'like father, like son'.
 

Jamie:
Well, I see we've both got our problems ... perhaps we can help each
other ... I've got something here... lots of my friends smoke it...
I don't suppose you know it... try it, it helps at times like these...
 

Jeanne:
Oh what a beautiful feeling... everything shimmering in the
twilight... look at that sunset... I've never seen such colors
before... it all seems suspended in eternity... I wish moments like
these would last forever... I'm not worried any more... what are you
thinking?
 

Jamie:
I can't think at the moment... but I feel as if we've known each
other for years... let's just enjoy it.


Somehow we must stay together, lifelong friend, my lifelong friend,
Love like ours will last forever, never end, and never end:
We'll somehow wipe away our fears,
And find a way to bridge the years.

Dancing with the Moonlit Knight - Genesis



"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 Green Shield stamp and shout.

There's a fat old lady outside the saloon;
laying out the credit she plays Fortune.
The deck is uneven right from the start;
all of their hands are playing apart.

The Captain leads his dance right on through the night
- join the dance ....
Follow on! A Round Table-talking down we go.
You're the show!
Off we go with: - You play the hobbyhorse,
I'll play the fool.
We'll tease the bull
ringing round & loud, loud & round.
Follow on! With a twist of the world we go.
Follow on! Till the gold is cold.
Dancing out with the moonlit knight,
Knights of the Green Shield stamp and shout.

Angellore - Tristania



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 eyes  It's inside 
It's in my heart, the same relation 
From which I once led astray
 

Oh, please believe 
It's in her eyes It's inside  
It's in my heart 
The same delightful place I 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 eyes It's inside  
It's in my heart, the same desire I feel burning in me
Oh, please believe 

It's in her eyes It's inside 
It's in my heart, the same desire from the empty pain within
 

Rise for me, soothe my heart  
So wide a sea, may I overcome
 
Deep as the sea Wailing secrecies are burning in me For a dream I once desired I bequeath my sorrow and I regret to thee Cannot cross that wide a sea
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

The Logical Song - Supertramp



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 who I am.
