Silver Springs
from Fleetwood Mac's Rumours
(Stevie Nicks)

You could be my silver spring
Blue-green colors flashing
I could be your only dream
Your shining over ocean crashing

And do you say she's pretty
And do you say that she loves you
Baby I don't want to know

So I begin not to love you
Turn 'round and see me running
I said I loved you years ago
But tell myself you never loved me no

And do you say she's pretty
And do you say that she loves you
Baby I don't want to know oh no

And do you tell me was it worth it
Baby I don't want to know

Time cast a spell on you
But you won't forget me
I know I could have loved you
But you would not let me oh

Time cast a spell on you
But you won't forget me
I know I could have loved you
But you would not let me yeah

I'll follow you down 'till the sound
Of a voice that haunt you
Was I just a fool
Never got away from the sound
Of the woman who loves you
Never tell a fool now

I'll follow you down 'till the sound
Of a woman who loves you oh
Well you will never get away from the sound
Of a voice that haunts you

Na na wellll Was I just a fool

Free Man in Paris
from Joni Mitchell's Court and Sparks
(Joni Mitchell)

"The way I see it," he said
"You just can't win it...
Everybody's in it for their own gain
You can't please 'em all
There's always somebody calling you down
I do my best
And I do good business
There's a lot of people asking for my time
They're trying to get ahead
They're trying to be a good friend of mine

I was a free man in Paris
I felt unfettered and alive
There was nobody calling me up for favors
And no one's future to decide
You know I'd go back there tomorrow
But for the work I've taken on
Stoking the star maker machinery
Behind the popular song

I deal in dreamers
And telephone screamers
Lately I wonder what I do it for
If I had my way
I'd just walk out those doors
And wander
Down the Champs Elysees
Going cafe to cabaret
Thinking how I'll feel when I find
That very good friend of mine

I was a free man in Paris
I felt unfettered and alive
Nobody was calling me up for favors
No one's future to decide
You know I'd go back there tomorrow
But for the work I've taken on
Stoking the star maker machinery
Behind the popular song.

from The Kinks's Well Respected Kinks

(Ray Davies and Dave Davies)

Girl, you really got me now
You got me so I don't know what I'm doin' now
Girl, you really got me now
You got me so I can't sleep at night

Yeah, you really got me now

Oh Yeah, you really got me now
You got me so I don't know what I'm doin', now
Oh girl, you really got me now

You got me so I can't sleep at night

You really got me
You really got me
You really got me

Manic Depression
from Jimi Hendrix's Are You Experienced
(Jimi Hendrix)

Manic Depression is touching my soul,
Well, I know what I want,
but I just don't know how to go about getting it.

Feeling, sweet feeling
drops from my fingers, fingers
Manic Depression is captured my soul.

Woman so willing the sweet cause in vain,
you make love,
you break love,
It's a, it's-a all the same when it's comes to us Yvonne

Music sweet music,
I wish I could caress, caress, caress.
Ah, Manic Depression's a frustrating mess.

Well, I think I will go turn myself off and go down, way down.
Really ain't no use in me hanging around.
Oh, I gotta see you.

Music sweet music,
I wish I could caress, in a kiss, kiss.
Ah, Manic Depression's a frustrating mess.

A Man Needs a Maid
from Neil Young's Harvest
(Neil Young)

My life is changing in so many ways
I don't know who to trust anymore
There's a shadow running thru my days
Like a beggar going from door to door.

I was thinking that maybe I'd get a maid
Find a place nearby for her to stay.
Just someone to keep my house clean,
Fix my meals and go away.

A maid, a man needs a maid.
A maid.

It's hard to make that change
When love and life turns strange.
And old.

To give a love,
you gotta live a love.
To live a love,
you gotta be "part of"
When will I see you again?

Long ago somewhere, I don't know when
I was watching a movie with a friend.
I fell in love with the actress.
She was playing a part
I could understand.

A maid, a man needs a maid.
A maid.

When will I see you again?

Where Do the Children Play
from Cat Stevens's Tea For The Tillerman
(Cat Stevens)

Well I think it's fine, building jumbo planes.
Or taking a ride on a cosmic train.
Switch on summer from a slot machine.
Yes, get what you want to if you want, 'cause you can get anything.

I know we've come a long way,
We're changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?

Well you roll on roads over fresh green grass.
For your lorry loads pumping petrol gas.
And you make them long, and you make them tough.
But they just go on and on, and it seems that you can't get off.

I know we've come a long way,
We're changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?

Well you've cracked the sky, scrapers fill the air.
Will you keep on building higher
'til there's no more room up there?
Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry?
Will you tell us when to live, will you tell us when to die?

I know we've come a long way,
We're changing day to day,
But tell me, why do the children play?

Oh Daddy
from Fleetwood Mac's Rumours
(Christine McVie)

Oh Daddy,
You know you make me cry,
How can you love me,
I don't understand why.

Oh Daddy,
If I can make you see,
If there's been a fool around,
It's got to be me.
Yes, it's got to be me.

Oh Daddy,
You soothe me with your smile,
You're letting me know,
You're the best thing in my life.

Oh Daddy,
If I can make you see,
If there's been a fool around,
It's got to be me.
Yes, it's got to be me.

Why are you right when I'm so wrong,
I'm so weak but you're so strong,
Everything you do is just alright,
And I can't walk away from you, baby
If I tried.

Why are you right when I'm so wrong,
I'm so weak but you're so strong,
Everything you do is just alright,
And I can't walk away from you, baby
If I tried.

Oh Daddy,
You soothe me with your smile,
You're letting me know,
You're the best thing in my life.

Oh Daddy,
If I can make you see,
If there's been a fool around,
It's got to be me.
Yes, it's got to be me.
Yes, it's got to be me.
Yes, it's got to be me.

With or Without You
from U2's Joshua Tree
(Adam Clayton, Larry Mullen, the Edge, Bono)

See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you

Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I waited for you

With or without you
With or without you, oh, oh
I can't live
I can't live
I can't live
With or without you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised, she's got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

With or without you
With or without you, oh, oh
I can't live
With or without you

With or without you
With or without you oh, oh
I can't live, oh
With or without you, oh

Show Me
from The Pretenders's Learning To Crawl
(Chrissie Hynde)

Show me the meaning of the word
Show me the meaning of the word
'Cause I've heard so much about it
They say, "Hey, you can't live without it"

Welcome to the human race
With its wars, disease and brutality
You with your innocence and grace
Restore some pride and dignity
To a world in decline

Welcome to a special place
In a heart of stone that's cold and gray
You with your angel face
Keep the despair at bay
Send it away, and
Show me the meaning of the word
Show me the meaning of the word
'Cause I've heard so much about it
I don't want to live without it
I don't want to live without it
Oh, lo, oh, I want love
I want love

Welcome here from outer space
The Milky Way is still in your eyes
You found yourself a hopeless case
One that's seeking perfection on earth
That's some kind of rebirth, so

Show me the meaning of the word
Show me the meaning of the word
'Cause I've heard so much about it
Ah, don't make me live without it
I don't want to live without it
Oh, love, love

If you can just get your mind together
Come on across to me
We'll hold hands and then well watch the sunrise
From the bottom of the sea
But first, are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced?
Well, I have

That your little world wont let you go
But who in your measly little world
Are you tryin to prove to that your
Made out of gold and, cant be sold
Ah but, are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced? (-uh)
Well, I have

Uh, let me prove it to you, uh

Maybe now you can't hear them now,
But you will, if you just
Take hold of my hand

Have you ever been experienced?
Not necessarily stoned, ah but beautiful yeah

Not necessarily stoned, but beautiful

One Tree Hill and Exit
from U2's Joshua Tree
(U2 / Bono, Clayton, Edge, Mullen)

We turn away to face the cold, enduring chill
As the day begs the night for mercy, love.

A sun so bright it leaves no shadows
Only scars carved into stone on the face of earth.

The moon is up and over One Tree Hill
We see the sun go down in your eyes.

You run like a river on to the sea
You run like a river runs to the sea.

And in the world, a heart of darkness, a fire-zone
Where poets speak their heart then bleed for it

Jara sang, his song a weapon in the hands of love.
You know his blood still cries from the ground.

It runs like a river into to the sea.
It runs like a river runs to the sea.

Well, I don't believe in painted roses or bleeding hearts
While bullets rape the night of the merciful.

I'll see you again when the stars fall from the sky
And the moon has turned red over One Tree Hill.

We run like a river runs to the sea
We run like a river to the sea.

And when it's rainin', rainin' hard
That's when the rain will break a heart.

Rainin', rainin' in your heart
Rainin' in your heart.
Rainin', rainin' your heart
Rainin' your heart
Rainin', rainin', rainin'
Rainin' your heart.
Rainin', ooh, rain in your heart, yeah.

Oh great ocean
Oh great sea
Run to the ocean
Run to the sea.


You know he got the cure
But then he went astray
He used to stay awake
To drive the dreams he had away.
He wanted to believe
In the hands of love.

His head it felt heavy
As it came across the land
A dog started cryin'
Like a broken-hearted man
At the howling wind
At the howling wind.

He went deeper into black
Deeper into white.
He could see the stars shine
Like nails in the night.

He felt the healing
Healing, healing, healing hands of love
Like the stars shiny, shiny from above.
A hand in the pocket
Fingering the steel
The pistol weighed heavy
And his heart he could feel was beating
Beating, beating, beating,
Oh my love, oh my love
Oh my love, oh my love.

So hands that build
Can also pull down
The hands of love.
Hands of love.

Mothers of the Disappeared
from U2's Joshua Tree
(Bono, Clayton, Edge, Mullen)

Midnight, our sons and daughters
Were cut down and taken from us
Hear their heartbeats
We hear their heartbeats

In the wind
We hear their laughter
In the rain
We see their tears
Hear their heartbeats...
We hear their heartbeats

Night hangs like a prisoner
Stretched over black and blue
Hear their heartbeats
Hear their heartbeats

In the trees
Our sons stand naked
Through the walls
Our daughters cry
See their tears in the rainfall
