My Friends - Red Hot Chili Peppers



My friends are so depressed
I feel the question
Of your loneliness
Confide, 'cause I'll be on your side
You know I will, you know I will


Ex girlfriend called me up
Alone and desperate
On the prison phone
They want, to give her seven years
For being sad


I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely too
When you don't know yourself


My friends are so distressed
And standing on
The brink of emptiness
No words, I know of to express
This emptiness


I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely too
When you don't know yourself


Imagine me taught by tragedy
Release is peace


I heard a little girl
And what she said
Was something beautiful
To give, your love
No matter what
Yeah, what she said


I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely too
When you don't know yourself

Renegades - X Ambassadors



Run away with me
Lost souls and reverie
Running wild and running free
Two kids, you and me

And I say
Hey, hey hey hey
Living like we're renegades
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Living like we're renegades
Renegades, renegades

Long live the pioneers
Rebels and mutineers
Go forth and have no fear
Come close the end is near

And I say hey, hey hey hey
Living like we're renegades
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Living like we're renegades
Renegades, renegades

All hail the underdogs
All hail the new kids
All hail the outlaws
Spielberg's and Kubrick's

It's our time to make a move
It's our time to make amends
It's our time to break the rules
Let's begin

And I say hey, hey hey hey
Living like we're renegades
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Leaving like we're renegades
Renegades, renegades

Mellow Doubt - Teenage Fanclub



It gives me pain, when I think of you
And the things together that we'll never do
At first it's cold, and then it's hot
Tried to be someone that I know I'm not


I'm in trouble, and I know it
How I'm feeling, I can't show it
But these feelings, don't go away


I remember you, lines on your face.
Sharing a moment in the perfect place.
I'm deep in your eyes, and inside your head.
And I try to reach you, when I'm in my bed.


I'm in trouble, and I know it
How I'm feeling, I can't show it
But these feelings, don't go away


There is no choice, in what I must do.
Nothing is greater than to be with you.


I'm in trouble, and I know it
How I'm feeling, I can't show it
But these feelings, don't go away

My Baby Just Cares For Me - Nina Simone



My baby don't care for shows
My baby don't care for clothes
My baby just cares for me
My baby don't care for cars and races
My baby don't care for high-tone places

Liz Taylor is not his style
And even Lana Turner's smile
Is somethin' he can't see
My baby don't care who knows
My baby just cares for me

Baby, my baby don't care for shows
And he don't even care for clothes
He cares for me
My baby don't care
For cars and races
My baby don't care for
He don't care for high-tone places

Liz Taylor is not his style
And even Liberace's smile
Is something he can't see
Is something he can't see
I wonder what's wrong with baby
My baby just cares for
My baby just cares for
My baby just cares for me

Think of Me - The Phantom of The Opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber



Think of me, think of me fondly
When we've said goodbye
Remember me, once in a while
Please, promise me you'll try

When you find that once again you long
To take your heart back and be free
If you ever find a moment
Spare a thought for me

We never said "our love was evergreen"
Or "as unchanging as the sea"
But if you can still remember,
Stop and think of me

Think of all the things
We've shared and seen
Don't think about the
Things which might have been

Think of me, think of me waking
Silent and resigned
Imagine me trying too hard
To put you from my mind

Recall those days, look back on all those times
Think of the things we'll never do
There will never be a day
When I won't think of you

Long Gone Day - Mad Season



So much blood I'm starting to drown
It runs from cold to colder
Time to time the sky's coming down
And help me lose my way

Tears and lies for answers
You and open veins; God knows I'm gone
Girl I just want you to
Come on down

Lord it's a storm and I'm heading to fall
These sins are mine and I've done wrong
Oh, babe, come on down

Long gone day
Oh whoever said we wash away with the rain

See you all from time to time
Isn't it so strange how far away we all are now?
Am I the only one who remembers that summer?
Oh I remember everyday each time the place was saved
The music that we made
The wind has carried all of that away

Long gone day
Mmmm, whoever said we wash away with the rain

So many tears I'm starting to drown
The rain in heaven's all come down
Silver spoons affix the crown
The luckless ones are broken

Tears and lies for answers
You an open flame
God knows I'm gone
Girl, I just want you to
Come on down

Lord there's a storm and I'm heading to fall
These sins are mine and I've done wrong
I want you to, Oh I just want you to
Come on down

I fear again, like then, I lost my way
And shout to God to bring my sunny day

Eighties - Killing Joke



Eighties - I'm living in the eighties
Eighties - I have to push, I have to struggle
Eighties - get out of my way, I'm not for sale no more
Eighties - let's kamikaze 'til we get there

And we sang
You do it this way

Eighties - by day we run by night we dance, we do
Eighties - I'm in love with the coming race
Eighties - I've got the best, I'll take all I can get
Eighties - I'm living for the eighties

Eighties - I'm living in the eighties - I push
Eighties - I'm living
Eighties - I'm living in the eighties - I struggle
Eighties - I'm living

Eighties - I'm living
Eighties - I'm living in the eighties
Eighties - I'm living in the eighties - I push
Eighties - push, push, struggle

Eighties - I'm living
Eighties - eighties - I'm living
Eighties - I'm living in the eighties - I push

Taylor, the Latte Boy - Kristin Chenoweth



There's a boy who works at Starbucks
Who is very inspirational
He is very inspirational because of many things

I come in at 8:11
And he smiles and says: "How are you?"
When he smiles and says: "How are you?"
I could swear my heart grows wings!

So today at 8:11
I decided I should meet him
I decided I should meet him
In a proper formal way

So today at 8:11
When he smiled and said: "How are you?"
I said: "Fine, and my name’s Kristin, "
And he softly answered: "Hey."


And I said "My name’s Kristin
And thank you for the extra foam..."
And he said his name was Taylor
Which provides the inspiration for this poem:

Taylor, the latte boy
Bring me java, bring me joy!
Taylor, the latte boy
I love him, I love him, I love him


So I’d like to get my nerve up
To recite my poem musical
He would like the fact it’s musical
Because he plays guitar


So today at 8:11
Taylor told me he was playing
In a band down in the village
In the basement of a bar


And I saw him flip the lever
To prepare my double-latte
But for me he made it triple!
(And he didn’t think I knew)


But I saw him flip the lever
And for me he made it triple
And I knew that triple-latte meant
That Taylor loved me, too!

I said: "What time are you playing?
And thank you for the extra skim..."
He said: "Keep the $3.55, "
Because this triple latte was on him

Taylor, the latte boy
Bring me java, bring me joy!
Taylor, the latte boy
I love him, I love him, I love him


I used to be the kind of girl
Who’d run when love rushed toward her
'Til finally a voice whispered: "Love can be yours
If you step up to the counter and order, "

Taylor, the latte boy
Bring me java, bring me joy!
Taylor, the latte boy
I love him, I love him, I love him
So many years my heart has waited
Who’d have thought that love
Could be so caffeinated?

Taylor, the latte boy
I love him, I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him, I love him!

Screamager - Therapy?



With a face like this
I won't break any hearts
And thinking like that
I won't make any friends


Screw that, forget about that
I don't wanna hear about anything like that
Screw that, forget about that
I don't wanna know about anything like that


I've got nothing to do 'cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you
I've got nothing to do 'cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you


Your beauty makes me feel alone
I look inside but no ones home
Screw that, forget about that
I don't wanna hear about anything like that
Screw that, forget about that
I don't wanna know about anything like that


I've got nothing to do 'cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you
I've got nothing to do 'cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you

I've got nothing to do 'cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you
I've got nothing to do 'cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you
I've got nothing to do 'cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you
I've got nothing to do 'cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you

Violet - Hole



And the sky was made of amethyst
And all the stars were just like little fish
You should learn when to go
You should learn how to say no
 
Might last a day, yeah
Mine is forever
Might last a day, yeah
Mine is forever
 
Well they get what they want, and they never want it again
Well they get what they want, and they never want it again
Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
 
And the sky was all violet
I want to give the violent more violets
And I'm the one with no soul
One above and one below
 
Might last a day, yeah
Mine is forever
Might last a day, yeah
Mine is forever
 
When they get what they want, and they never want it again
And they get what they want, and they never want it again
Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything, I dare you to
 
I told you from the start just how this would end
When I get what I want, then I never want it again
Go on take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on take everything, take everything I want you to
 
 
If I don't mind you don't mind
 
Go on take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on take everything, take everything I want you to
Go on take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on take everything, take everything, take everything, take everything

Possibly Maybe - Bjork



Your flirt finds me out
Teases the crack in me
Smittens me with hope


Possibly maybe possibly maybe
possibly maybe


As much as I definitely enjoy solitude
I wouldn't mind perhaps
Spending little time with you

Sometimes
Sometimes


Possibly maybe probably love
Possibly maybe probably love


Uncertainty excites me, babe
Who knows what's going to happen?
Lottery or car crash
Or you'll join a cult


Probably maybe possibly love
Probably maybe possibly love, possibly


Mon petit vulcan
You're eruptions and disasters
I keep calm admiring your lava
I keep calm


Possibly maybe probably love
Possibly maybe probably love


Electric shocks?
I love them!
With you, dozen a day
But after a while I wonder
Where's that love you promised me?
Where is it?


Possibly maybe probably love, possibly
Possibly maybe probably love, possibly


How can you offer me love like that?
My heart's burned
How can you offer me love like that?
I'm exhausted
Leave me alone


Possibly maybe possibly maybe
Possibly maybe


Since we broke up
I'm using lipstick again
I suck my tongue
In remembrance of you

Hello Helicopter! - OSI



Well at least this time you were right
And you had the good sense to give up
Yeah, when others they might've hung in
so just nobody touch me, I know what I'm doing

Can I destroy that for you, ma'am?
Can I destroy that for you, mister?

It looks good on you
It looks good on you
but these things look better broken
Hello, Helicopter!

Well I hope this time we were right
'cause it looks a little worse every day
There's another one flying tonight
and I hope it don't make it
I know what we're doing

Can I destroy that for you ma'am?
Can I destroy that for you, mister?
It looks good on you it looks good on you
but these things look better broken
Hello, Helicopter!

The Riot Act - Skid Row



I never wanted to be President
'Cause it's nothin' but an ego trip
I didn't want your education
'Cause it's nothin' but a pile of shit


You bore me to death so shut up for
God's sake


Stop readin' me the riot act
While my brains are still intact
You say it's raining, but you're pissin' down my back
So stop readin' me the riot act


I couldn't listen to a word you said
This goin' nowhere thing is wearin' thin
When your sex, your drugs and your valedic'
Is just the spit I wipe off my chin


I'd rather go nowhere than not know where it's at

Stop readin' me the riot act
While my brains are still intact
You say it's raining, but you're pissin' down my back
So stop readin' me the riot act


I never wanted to be President
'Cause it's nothin' but an ego trip, yeah
I didn't want your education
'Cause it's nothin' but a pile of shit


You bore me to death so shut up for
God's sake


Stop readin' me the riot act
While my brains are still intact
You say it's raining, but you're pissin' down my back
So stop readin' me the riot act


Stop readin' me the riot act
While my brains are still intact
You say it's raining, but you're pissin' down my back
So stop readin' me the riot act

Love Me Tender - Elvis Presley



Love me tender
Love me sweet
Never let me go
You have made my life complete
And I love you so


Love me tender
Love me true
All my dreams fulfilled
For my darling I love you
And I always will


Love me tender
Love me long
Take me to your heart
For it's there that I belong
And we'll never part


Love me tender
Love me dear
Tell me you are mine
I'll be yours through all the years
Till the end of time
