Sunshine - Aerosmith

i sold my soul for a one night stand
I followed alice into wonder land
i ate the mushroom and i dance with the queen
yeah we dancing inbetween all the lines
i followed daylight right into the dark
took to the hatter like a walk in the park
but then i met her yeah she felt so right
no shadow (?) the night yeah it was she
they call her sunshine
the kind that everbody knows
yeah yeah
they call her sunshine
she's finer than a painted rose
yeah yeah

her kind of love is what i adore
what kind of trouble am i in for
my kind of heaven lies in hells back door
and i got more than i need
cause i need sunshine
the kind everbody knows

my sunshine she's finer than a painted rose
yeah yeah sunshine yeah
i got the karma but it dont come free

Desert Rose - Sting

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall

Castles made of Sand -- Jimi Hendrix

Down the street you can hear her scream you're a disgrace
As she slams the door in his drunken face
And now he stands outside
And all the neighbors start to gossip and drool
He cries oh, girl you must be mad,
What happened to the sweet love you and me had?
Against the door he leans and starts a scene,
And his tears fall and burn the garden green

And so castles made of sand fall in the sea, eventually

A little Indian brave who before he was ten,
Played war games in the woods with his Indian friends
And he built up a dream that when he grew up
He would be a fearless warrior Indian Cheif
Many moons past and more the dream grew strong until
Tomorrow he would sing his first war song and fight his first battle
But something went wrong, surprise attack killed him in his sleep that night

And so castles made of sand melts into the sea, eventually

There was a young girl, who's heart was a frown
Cause she was crippled for life,
And she couldn't speak a sound
And she wished and prayed she could stop living,
So she decided to die
She drew her wheelchair to the edge of the shore
And to her legs she smiled you wont hurt me no more
But then a sight she'd never seen made her jump and say
Look a golden winged ship is passing my way

And it really didn't have to stop, it just kept on going...

And so castles made of sand slips into the sea, eventually

Castles Burning - Journey

Jimmy wanted her the moment that she stumbled his way
With a cocktail in her hand, she knew how she'd win the game
There were beautiful in all the right places
She keeps her rendezvous with soup opera faces
She started rumors that were driving him crazy
He couldn't stop the things they'd say

And they live for, passion, love and pain
In a rage of jealousy and fame
And they watch their dreams go up on flames

Castles burning... in the dead of night
Castles burning... in the dead of night
Wo... burnin'...

In the kingdom of pretenders love is not what it seems
Jimmy cried and then he punished her
No one heard her scream
On the outside, it's all crimson and clover
On the inside, they know it's over

And the band of lawyers that steal the show
As they watch their world go up in smoke

Castles burning... in the dead of night
Castles burning... in the dead of night
Wo... burnin'... burnin'... burnin'... burnin'...

(spoken words)
When we return a story of a 5 alarm fire
Late last night in the prestigious hollywood hills
Where one of the most controversial marriages in the
Entertainment industry went up in smoke, arson is suspected
It is still under investigation...

You know I love you, you know you're my girl,
I'd never hurt you... no

Castles burning... in the dead of night
Castles burning... in the dead of night
Burnin'... burnin'

All is fair in love and war, but war is hell...
In the heart of the night, in the middle of the big bad city

The Ballad Of Jimmy & Johnny -- Rancid

Jimmy and johnny two friends of mine
skinheads what they clamed
Outside simalarities but they don't feel the same
Johnny thinks jimmy is a mod
and jimmy thinks johnny's a punk
Jimmy listens to ska
and johnny likes last resort
Jimmy and johnny in the trenches
We down tonight
Drinking guiness smoking 555's
Once you're in the middle you feel alright
Skinheads tats and a fred perry
There's a was in the cemetary
Start to fight stop drinking
What the fuck were they thinking

Jimmy and johnny tell me what you're seeing
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Jimmy had his two tone girl on the back of his scooter that night
Johnny had a jackes up chevy that could blow you right off the line
Skinheads tats and a fred perry
There's a was in the cemetary
Start to fight stop drinking
What the fuck were they thinking

Jimmy and johnny tell me what you're seeing
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

In The Dark - Billy Squier

Life isn't easy from the singular side
Down in the hole some emotions are hard to hide
It's your decision it's a chance that you take
It's on your head it's a habit that's hard to break
Do you need a friend would you tell no lies
Would you take me in are you lonely in the dark...


You never listen to the voices inside
They fill your ears as you run to a place to hide
You're never sure if the illusion is real
You pinch yourself but the mem'ries are all you feel
Can you break away from your alibis
Can you make a play will you meet me in the dark...


Don'tcha need me...hey, hey
Don'tcha need me...oh yea
Don'tcha leave me...hey, hey
Don'tcha need me...oh yea


You take no int'rest no opinion's too dear
You make the rounds and you try to be so sincere
You guard your hopes and you pocket your dreams
You'd trade it all to avoid an unpleasant scene
Can you face the fire when you see me there
Can you feel the fire will you love me in the dark...

Lights and Thunder - White Lion

Let me take you to a place
Where everybody knows your face
There¹s no King and there¹s no Queen
And everything is like a dream
You can live in harmony
With those who were your enemy
You can do just what you want to
No one here will ever hurt you

There'll be lights and thunder
There'll be time to wonder
And there will be no crying
There'll be light and thunder
Therell be time to wonder
And there will be no crying
There will be no lying
Yeah there will be no dying

There won't be a hell below
And there won't be no god to follow
No religion, no believing
No confession, no deceiving
I will take you up and higher
Let you see that you believe it

There'll be lights and thunder
Therell be time to wonder
And there will be no crying
There will be no lying
Yeah there will be no dying

Would you like to live forever
Family and friends together
Come inside and see tomorrow
Where happiness replaces sorrow

You can live in harmony
With those who were your enemy
You can do just what you want to
No one here will ever hurt you
I will take you up AND higher
Let you find what you desire
Take you to the sky and higher
Let you see that you believe it

There'll be lights and thunder ...

They Just Can't Stop It (Games People Play) - The Spinners

Can't get no rest
Don't know how I work all day
When will I learn?
Memories get in the way
I walk around
I can't hear a sound, folks talkin' loud, but I
Don't see at all
I gotta get away, gotta get away, I don't

Know where to go
It's hopeless so
I guess I'll leave it alone well I
Spent all my day
Fixin' up to go somewhere
Thought I was late
And I found she wasn't there
I guess I'll find
Love, peace of mind, some other time, but I
Still have today
I gotta get away, gotta get away, I don't
Know where to go
It's hopeless so
I guess I'll leave it alone

Games people play
Night or day they're just not matchin'
What they should do
Keeps me feelin' blue

Been down too long
Right, wrong, they just can't stop it
Spendin' all day
Thinking just of you

Twelve forty-five
Headed for the subway home
I took my time
'Cause I felt so all alone

Not far away
I heard a funny sound, took a look around, and I
Could see her face
Smilin' as she came, callin' out my name, so I
Know where to go
We'll take it slow
Guess I'll call it a day

Games people play
Night or day they're just not matchin'
What they should do
Keeps me feelin' blue
Games people play.....

Loved For Sale - Bon Jovi

Well I wake up this morning I rolled out of bed
I felt like a dog who's been kicked in the head
Checked out my mail there was letter that read
Love for sale, love for sale

I picked up the phone I called everyone I could
I let my fingers do the walking through the telephone book
You can't catch a fish if you ain't got the hook
Love for sale, love for sale

Send up a signal throw me a line
Somebody explain " this funny Valentine"
It might not be legal but it sure ain't a crime
I'm one step from crazy and two steps behind

I called Lt. Columbo from my TV set
I've tried the Dating Game I haven't found her yet
I'm hoping that she's looking like a Penthouse Pet
Love for sale, love for sale

[Solo]

We've been living together 3 years,
2 hours, 20 minutes maybe four houndred beers
You can't shop for love when you're shopping at, Sears
Love for sale, love for sale

I guess I've learnt my lesson it was easy to see
My old lady she played this joke on me
I never looked where I forgot it would be
Love for sale, love for sale

The Soul Cages - Sting

The boy child is locked in the fisherman's yard
There's a bloodless moon where the ocean died
A shoal of nightstars hang fire in the nets
And the chaos of cages where the crayfish lie

Where is the fisherman, where is the goat?
Where is the keeper in his carrion coat?
Eclipse on the moon when the dark bird flies
Where is the child with his father's eyes?

There are the soul cages
These are the soul cages

He's the king of the ninth world
The twisted son of the fog bells toll
In each and every lobster cage
A tortured human soul

These are the souls of broken factories
The subject slaves of the broken crown
The dead accounting of old guilty promises
These are the souls of the broken town

These are the soul cages
These are the soul cages
These are the soul cages
These are the soul cages

'I have a wager' the brave child spoke
The fisherman laughed, though disturbed at the joke
'You will drink what I drink but you must equal me
And if the drink leaves me standing,
A soul shall go free'

'I have here a cask of most magical wine
A vintage that blessed every ship in the line
It's wrung from the blood of the sailor's who died
Young white bodies adrift in the tide'

'And what's in it for me my pretty young thing?
Why should I whistle, when the caged bird sings?
If you lose a wager with the king of the sea
You'll spend the rest of forever in the cage with me'

These are the soul cages
These are the soul cages
These are the soul cages
These are the soul cages

A body lies open in the fisherman's yard
Like the side of a ship where the iceberg rips
One less soul in the soul cages
One last curse on the fisherman's lips

These are the soul cages
These are the soul cages
These are the soul cages
These are the soul cages

Swim to the light Swim to the light

He dreamed of the ship on the sea
It would carry his father and he
To a place they could never be found
To a place far away from this town
A Newcastle ship without coals
They would sail to the island of souls

Master of Puppets -- Metallica

End of passion play, crumbling away
I'm your source of self-destruction
Veins that pump with fear, sucking darkest clear
Leading on your deaths' construction

Taste me you will see
More is all you need
You're dedicated to
How I'm killing you

Come crawling faster
Obey your master
Your life burns faster
Obey your master
Master

Master of puppets I'm pulling your strings
Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master

Needlework the way, never you betray
Life of death becoming clearer
Pain monopoly, ritual misery
Chop your breakfast on a mirror

Taste me you will see
More is all you need
You're dedicated to
How I'm killing you

Come crawling faster
Obey your master
Your life burns faster
Obey your master
Master

Master of puppets I'm pulling your strings
Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master

Master, master, where's the dreams that I've been after?
Master, master, you promised only lies
Laughter, laughter, all I hear or see is laughter
Laughter, laughter, laughing at my cries

Hell is worth all that, natural habitat
Just a rhyme without a reason
Neverending maze, drift on numbered days
Now your life is out of season

I will occupy
I will help you die
I will run through you
Now I rule you too

Stand Up -- David Lee Roth

She looks like Monroe
It's a good impersonation
From start to finish
It's her better side
Head over heels
Yes, he feels a strange sensation
Excedrin Headache #65

That's the trouble with love
That's the trouble with war
You never get what you came for

Stand up, stand up
The more you do it
The less you fall down
Stand up, stand up
Put your head in the clouds
And your feet on the ground
Stand up, stand up
For the time of your life
You turn it up loud
Stand up, stan up

What kind of fashion
Is this flash infatuation
Is all this admiration mutual
Need no lessons
In emotiona starvation
Tat look in her eyes
Is too good to be true...

So now you got a good reason
Yeah, but you just gorra learn
It's what makes the world turn

Stand up, stand up
The more you do ti
The less you fall down
Stand up, stand up
Put your head in the clouds
And your feet on the ground
Stand yp, stand up
For the time of your life
You turn it up loud
And stand up stand up

Glad to see Whirl followed up my post with a DLR tune...
that second side of Skyscraper (I was from the cassette generation) was cool and quirky - Hina, Hot Dog and a Shake, Stand Up, etc.
Ending derail - now back to business.

7 Words by Deftones

I'd post the lyrics...but they're really Not appropriate for all forum audiences.

The Seventh Seal - Van Halen

Walk me down to the wishin' well
Help me find that miracle
Splash that holy water on me
Drown my faith in Trinity, yeah
Oh, Lord

Little by little gonna get it I swear
One more piece of the puzzle, I'm there. Yeah
Gotta get lucky, gotta get that done
Little bit o' luck never hurt no one

Come on, take me down, down, down, down
I'm in a cold sweat
Lord, don't let me drown, drown, drown, drown
In Mother Earth's soul, yet!

Oh, yeah yeah!
Under darken skies
We'll see the light

Yeah!

Broken now, I can't help but feel
Someone cracked the seventh seal
Nothin' sacred, nothin' left unturned
When nothin's simple, then nothin's learned

So take me down to the virgin spring
Wash away my suffering, oh
Splash that holy water on me
Wash my eyes so I can see

Come on, take me down, down, down, down
I'm in a cold sweat
Yeah, don't let me drown, drown, drown, drown
In Mother Earth's soul, not yet
Lord, I think I found, found, found, found, found
My mother lode! Hey!
Oh, yeah!

Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord
Yeah! Down, down, down, down, down, down
Take me down, down, down, down, down, down
(Down, down, down, down, down, down)
Take me
