Give me one reason, New Beginning, 1995


Give me one reason to stay here – and I’ll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here – and I’ll turn right back around
Because I don’t want leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind
.
Baby I got your number and I know that you got mine
But you know that I called you, I called too many times
You can call me baby, you can call me anytime
But you got to call me
.
Give me one reason to stay here – and I’ll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here – and I’ll turn right back around
Because I don’t want leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind
.
I don’t want no one to squeeze me – they might take away my life
I don’t want no one to squeeze me – they might take away my life
I just want someone to hold me and rock me through the night
.
This youthful heart can love you and give you what you need
This youthful heart can love you and give you what you need
But I’m too old to go chasing you around
Wasting my precious energy
.
Give me one reason to stay here – and I’ll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here – and I’ll turn right back around
Because I don’t want leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind
.
Baby just give me one reason – Give me just one reason why
Baby just give me one reason – Give me just one reason why I should stay
Because I told you that I loved you
And there ain’t no more to say-

Baby can I Hold You, 1988

Sorry
Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like sorry like sorry
.
Forgive me
Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like forgive me forgive me
.
But you can say baby
Baby can I hold you tonight
Maybe if I told you the right words
At the right time you’d be mine
.
I love you
Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like I love you I love you-

Fast Car, 1988

You got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere
.
Anyplace is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we’ll make something
But me myself I got nothing to prove
.
You got a fast car
And I got a plan to get us out of here
I been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money
We won’t have to drive too far
Just ‘cross the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs
And finally see what it means to be living
.
You see my old man’s got a problem
He live with the bottle that’s the way it is
He says his body’s too old for working
I say his body’s too young to look like his
My mama went off and left him
She wanted more from life than he could give
I said somebody’s got to take care of him
So I quit school and that’s what I did
.
You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so we can fly away
We gotta make a decision
We leave tonight or live and die this way
.
I remember we were driving driving in your car
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped ‘round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone
.
You got a fast car
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves
You still ain’t got a job
And I work in a market as a checkout girl
I know things will get better
You’ll find work and I’ll get promoted
We’ll move out of the shelter
Buy a big house and live in the suburbs
You got a fast car
And I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
I’d always hoped for better
Thought maybe together you and me would find it
I got no plans I ain’t going nowhere
So take your fast car and keep on driving
.
You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so you can fly away
You gotta make a decision
You leave tonight or live and die this way

Army of me, Björk, Post, 1995

21 05 2011

Stand up
You’ve got to manage
I wont sympathize
Anymore.
.
And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me
.
You’re alright
There’s nothing wrong
Self-sufficience please!
And get to work.
.
And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me
Army of me
.
You’re on your own now
We wont save you
Your rescue-squad
Is to exhausted
.
And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me
Army of me

Just, Radiohead, The Bends, 1995

26 08 2010

Can’t get the stink off
He’s been hanging round for days
Comes like a comet
Suckered you but not your friends
One day he’ll get to you
And teach you how to be a holy cow
.
You do it to yourself, you do
And that’s what really hurts
Is that you do it to yourself
Just you and no one else
You do it to yourself
You do it to yourself
.
Don’t get my sympathy
Hanging out the 15th floor
You’ve changed the locks three times
He still comes reeling through the door
One day I’ll get you
And teach you how to get to purest hell
.
You do it to yourself, you do
And that’s what really hurts
Is that you do it to yourself
Just you, you and no one else
You do it to yourself
You do it to yourself
.
You do it to yourself, you do
And that’s what really hurts
Is that you do it to yourself
Just you, you and no one else
You do it to yourself
You do it to yourself.. yourself.. yourself..

Only happy when it rains, Garbage, Garbage, 1995

3 08 2010

I’m only happy when it rains
I’m only happy when it’s complicated
And though I know you can’t appreciate it
I’m only happy when it rains
.
You know I love it when the news is bad
And why it feels so good to feel so sad
I’m only happy when it rains
.
Pour your misery down, pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down, pour your misery down on me
.
I’m only happy when it rains
I feel good when things are going wrong
I only listen to the sad, sad songs
I’m only happy when it rains
.
I only smile in the dark
My only comfort is the night gone black
I didn’t accidentally tell you that
I’m only happy when it rains
.
You’ll get the message by the time I’m through
When I complain about me and you
I’m only happy when it rains
.
Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down
.
You can keep me company
As long as you don’t care
.
I’m only happy when it rains
You wanna hear about my new obsession?
I’m riding high upon a deep depression
I’m only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me)
.
I’m only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me)
I’m only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me)
I’m only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me)
I’m only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me)
