    Hi TMB and Everyone,

    Yer, I am travelling fairly well at the moment, thanks. Hope you are as well.

    I don't actually have any song lyricks this time, but song titles. I went to the library this morning to see what they had in the way of DVDs and CDs.

    I picked up a CD of African Blues music. The songs are not in English but I am enjoying the music and the melody. The other Cd is called "Music for Cruising" and includes such songs as "on the Road Again" by Willie Nelson. "King of the Road" Roger Miller. "Living next door to Alice" Smokie. to name a few.

    It will be interesting how many songs I sing along to as I am driving about this next week! Some of them are real oldies!

    Cheers all from Dools

    "I'll Be Your Mirror"

    I'll be your mirror
    Reflect what you are, in case you don't know
    I'll be the wind, the rain and the sunset
    The light on your door to show that you're home
    When you think the night has seen your mind
    That inside you're twisted and unkind
    Let me stand to show that you are blind
    Please put down your hands
    'Cause I see you
    I find it hard to believe you don't know
    The beauty that you are
    But if you don't let me be your eyes
    A hand in your darkness, so you won't be afraid
    When you think the night has seen your mind
    That inside you're twisted and unkind
    Let me stand to show that you are blind
    Please put down your hands
    'Cause I see you
    I'll be your mirror

    children, behave that's what they say when we're together and watch how you play they don't understand and so we're running just as fast as we can holding on to one another's hand trying to get away into the night and then you put your arms around me as we tumble to the ground and then you say i think we're alone now there doesn't seem to be anyone around i think we're alone now the beating of our hearts is the only sound look at the way we gotta hide what we're doing cause what would they say if they ever knew and so we're running just as fast as we can holding on to one another's hand trying to get away into the night and then you put your arms around me as we tumble to the ground and then you say i think we're alone now there doesn't seem to be anyone around i think we're alone now the beating of our hearts is the only sound

    Silence says more than words

    Imagination cures loneliness

    When you become a prisoner - Space Between, Sia

    This is one of my favourites by Neil Young - Hey, Hey, My, My

    Out of the blue and into the black

    They give you this, but you pay for that

    And once you're gone, you can't come back

    When you're out of the blue and into the black

    I feel it's a funny thing that darker lyrics reach out to you more. As they say, when you are happy you hear the music and when you are down you hear the lyrics. Just a little trivia......

    Hey Simona and Indra, thanks for the great lyrics and the trivia, I didn't know that about words and music, very interesting.


    "A Lot Of Wind"

    Desperate for entertainment So I turn the TV on There's people jumping up and down Then they have the panel on And they talk a lot of wind They talk a lot of wind

    Then they have Carl Lewis on He's got a ponytail and he's a vegan He talks a lot of wind He talks a lot about wind

    I turn the tragic lantern on It's a program "Good Morning" It's a lot of wind They talk a lot about wind

    I'm real sick and in distress I got octagonals in my eyelids From watching all that wind I get horrible horrible horrible dreams So I ring the TV line and get a lot of wind They talk a lot of wind

    You see them selling carpets You see them in the shops You see them on the kids programs And they talk a lot of wind

    Oh the boredom in my bones From belching a lot of wind They talk a lot about wind They talk a lot about wind

    I gotta forget about the wind Has a lot of nerve To talk a lot about wind

    There's a roly-poly, roly-poly man He's got a yak haircut (tik, tik, tik) They talk a lot about wind

    The Fall

    Aha. It's ok. I'm glad you enjoy . Sometimes I can't think straight so I post a song like this one. It's called after midnight by Eric clapton

    After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.
    After midnight, we're gonna chug-a-lug and shout.
    We're gonna stimulate some action;
    We're gonna get some satisfaction.
    We're gonna find out what it is all about.
    After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.

    After midnight, we're gonna shake your tambourine.
    After midnight, it's all gonna be peaches and cream.
    We're gonna cause talk and suspicion;
    We're gonna give an exhibition.
    We're gonna find out what it is all about.
    After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.

    After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.

    YES

    Liked "After Midnight". Had heard the song before but didn't know all the lyrics...


    "Into My Arms"

    I don't believe in an interventionist God
    But I know, darling, that you do
    But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
    Not to intervene when it came to you
    Not to touch a hair on your head
    To leave you as you are
    And if He felt He had to direct you
    Then direct you into my arms

    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms

    And I don't believe in the existence of angels
    But looking at you I wonder if that's true
    But if I did I would summon them together
    And ask them to watch over you
    To each burn a candle for you
    To make bright and clear your path
    And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love
    And guide you into my arms

    chorus

    But I believe in love
    And I know that you do too
    And I believe in some kind of path
    That we can walk down, me and you
    So keep your candles burning
    And make her journey bright and pure
    That she will keep returning
    Always and evermore

    chorus


    Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

    Prince (1958-2016).


    "Raspberry Beret"

    1 2 1 2 3

    Yeah

    I was working part time in a five-and-dime
    My boss was Mr. McGee
    He told me several times that he didn't like my kind
    'Cause I was a bit 2 leisurely

    Seems that I was busy doing something close 2 nothing
    But different than the day before
    That's when I saw her, Ooh, I saw her
    She walked in through the out door, out door

    She wore a raspberry beret
    The kind U find in a second hand store
    Raspberry beret
    And if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more
    Raspberry beret
    I think I love her...


    "When Doves Cry"

    How can you just leave me standing?
    Alone in a world that's so cold? (So cold)
    Maybe I'm just too demanding
    Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold
    Maybe you're just like my mother
    She's never satisfied (She's never satisfied)
    Why do we scream at each other
    This is what it sounds like
    When doves cry...


    "1999"

    'Cuz they say two thousand zero zero party over,
    Oops out of time...
    So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999.


    "Kiss"

    You don't have to be rich
    To be my girl
    You don't have to be cool
    To rule my world
    Ain't no particular sign I'm more compatible with
    I just want your extra time and your...kiss!

    Thanks Indra, glad you liked it.

    One of my favourite Prince lyrics is,

    "Act your age mamma, not your shoe size!" from Kiss.

    The Power of One...

    ...begins with believing.

    It starts in the heart... then flows through the soul...

    ...and changes the world.

    Imagine how life will be... when we stand in unity.

    Each of us holds the key...

    ...to the Power of One.
