songs that remian

here are some songs that I listen to a lot, but never get sick of, for some reason.
i thought i would share them with u…

(1) David Sylvian: I Surrender

I opened up the pathway of the heart
The flowers died embittered from the start

That night I crossed the bridge of sighs and I surrendered

I looked back and glimpsed the outline of a boy
His life of sorrows now collapsing into joy

And tonight the stars are all aligned and I surrender
My mother cries beneath a southern sky and I surrender

Recording angels and the poets of the night
Bring back the trophies of the battles that we fight

Searchlights fill the open skies and I surrender

Outrageous cries of love have called you back
Derailed the trains of thought, demolished wayward tracks

You tell me I’ve no need to wonder why I just surrender

I stand too close to see the sleight of hand
How she found this child inside the frightened man

Tonight I’m learning how to fly and I surrender

I’ve travelled all this way for your embrace
Enraptured by the recognition on your face

Hold me now while my old life dies tonight and I surrender
My mother cries beneath the open skies and I surrender

An ancient evening just before the fall
The light in your eyes, the meaning of it all

Birds fly and fill the summer skies and I surrender

She throws the burning books into the sea
“Come find the meaning of the word inside of me”

It’s alright the stars are all aligned and I surrender
My mother cries beneath the moonlit skies and I surrender

My body turns to ashes in her hands
The disappearing world of footprints in the sand

Tell me now that this love will never die and I’ll surrender
My mother cries beneath the open skies and I surrender

(2) Prince: A Case Of U – A Tribute To Joni Mitchell

video not available 😦

I’m a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I used 2 b frightened by the devil
and drawn 2 those ones who weren’t afraid
Remember when u told me
that love was touching souls?
Well, surely u touched mine
Part of u pours out of me from time 2 time in these lines
You’re in my blood like holy wine… You’re so bitter and so sweet
I could drink a case of u darling
and still on my feet… still be on my feet

You’re in my blood like holy wine… You’re so bitter and so sweet
I could drink a case of u darling
and still on my feet… still be on my feet…

(3) Nine Horses – The Banality Of Evil

I’ve got me a badge
A bright shiny badge
I’m painting the crest
In yellow and blue.
I’ve got me a club,
An exclusive club,
It doesn’t include
a place for you.

Hey……..howdy neighbour
Hey……..howdy neighbour
Right you are.

It’s in the way that you walk
All of the changes,
All the mistakes,
It’s in the demands
You constantly make…
It’s in the way that you grays
All of the Laws,
Don’t know when you’re better off…
Or at what cost.
You’ve got it good.

Hey….

The banality of Evil.

Hey…. howdy neighbour..
Hey…. howdy neighbour..
Right you are.

There was a time,
Not so long ago…
I was master of everything
I surveyed…
Yes there was a time..
We did it my way…
Well do things my way.

King of the Castle
Room at the Top
Off with their heads
Chop ’em off…

The banality of Evil…
The banality of Evil…

Hey…. howdy neighbour…

I don’t believe in what you believe
Your skin is flilthy
And your Gods
Don’t look like Gods to me.
I want to touch you
Now that isn’t right,
No that can’t be right,
I want to touch you
You’re leading me on… i know it.

hey….
King of the Castle
More Room at the Top
All sorts of loud men
The gloves are off…

Hey… howdy neighbour

The banality of Evil.

King of the Castle,
Room at the Top,
Off with their heads,
Chop ’em off…

The banality of Evil.
