Song of the Day: I Am I Said by Neil Diamond

Neil Diamond2

I Am… I Said

L.A.’s fine, the sun shines most the time
And the feeling is “lay back”
Palm trees grow and rents are low
But you know I keep thinkin’ about
Making my way back

Well I’m New York City born and raised
But nowadays,
I’m lost between two shores
L.A.’s fine, but it ain’t home
New York’s home,
But it ain’t mine no more

“I am”… I said
To no one there
And no one heard at all
Not even the chair

“I am”… I cried “I am”… said I
And I am lost and I can’t
Even say why
Leavin’ me lonely still

Did you ever read about a frog
Who dreamed of bein’ a king
And then became one
Well except for the names
And a few other changes
If you talk about me
The story’s the same one

But I got an emptiness deep inside
And I’ve tried
But it won’t let me go
And I’m not a man who likes to swear
But I never cared
For the sound of being alone

“I am”… I said
To no one there
And no one heard at all
Not even the chair
“I am”… I cried
“I am”… said I
And I am lost and I can’t
Even say why
“I am”… I said
“I am”… I cried
“I am”… I said

Song of the Day: Love Is A Battlefield by Pat Benatar

Pat Benatar

Love Is A Battlefield

We are young
(Heartache to heartache)
Heartache to heartache
(We stand)
We stand
No promises
(No demands)
No demands
(Love is a battlefield)
Love is a battlefield
Whoooo-oh-oh….
We are strong
No one can tell us we’re wrong
Searching our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield
You’re begging me to go
Then making me stay
Why do you hurt me so bad
It would help me to know
Do I stand in your way
Or am I the best thing you’ve had
Believe me
Believe me
I can’t tell you why
But I’m trapped by your love
And I’m chained to your side
We are young
Heartache to heartache we stand
No promises
No demands
Love is a battlefield
We are strong
No one can tell us we’re wrong
Searching our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

Song of the Day: White Trash Circus by Motley Crue

White Trash Circus

I opened up a bottle and I fell out of bed
I couldn’t find the floor until it hit me in the head
I did a little powred off the bathroom sink
It’s been about a month and something’s start to stink
Me and the band we are starting to fight
Cuz if we got along it just wouldn’t feel right

(Chorus)
We’re the white trash circus… Don’t give a damn
We’ll steal your girl whenever we can
We’re the drunken god’s of the living dead

We’re the voice, we’re the voice
We’re the voice in your head
We’re the trash, we’re the trash
We’re the trash in your bed

Been livin’on the road about a year and half
If we go another mile we’re gonna kick each other’s ass
Someone’s gonna quit or someone’s gonna die
And we don’t give a shit because we love it to death

(Chorus)

We’re the son’s of devil, we’re the blood on the stage
You can love us you can hate us but will never go away…

Song of the Day: It’s My Life by Bon Jovi

It’s My Life

This ain’t a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain’t gonna be just a face in the crowd
You’re gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud

[Chorus:]
It’s my life
It’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I’m alive
It’s my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow’s getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain’t even lucky
Got to make your own breaks

[Chorus:]
It’s my life
And it’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I’m alive
‘Cause it’s my life

Better stand tall when they’re calling you out
Don’t bend, don’t break, baby, don’t back down

[Chorus:]
It’s my life
And it’s now or never
‘Cause I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I’m alive

[Chorus:]
It’s my life
And it’s now or never
‘Cause I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I’m alive
‘Cause it’s my life!

Song of the Day: Big Log by Robert Plant

Robert Plant

Big Log

My love is in league
with the freeway
Its passion will ride
as the cities fly by
And the taillights dissolve
in the coming of night
And the questions in
thousands take flight

My love is the miles
and the waiting
The eyes that just stare
and a glance at the clock
And the secret that burns
and the pain that won’t stop
And it’s fuel is the years

Leading me on (leading me on)
leading me down the road
Driving me on (driving me on)
driving me down the road

My love is exceeding the limit
Red-eyed and fevered
with the hum of the miles
Distance and longing
my thoughts do collide
Should I rest for a
while on the side?

Your love is cradled in knowing
eyes in the mirror
still expecting they’ll come
Sensing too well
when the journey is done
there is no turning back, no
There is no turning back
on the road

My love is in league
with the freeway
Oh, the freeway
and the coming of night time
My love, my love
is in league with the freeway

Song of the Day: Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin2

Stairway To Heaven

There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she’s buying a stairway to heaven.

There’s a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
‘Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there’s a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There’s a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it’s whispered that soon, if we all call the tune,
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long,
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed now,
It’s just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There’s still time to change the road you’re on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won’t go, in case you don’t know,
The piper’s calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind?

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.

WOW! Still the GREATEST.BAND.EVER. And Celebration Day is great!

Kashmir

Oh let the sun beat down upon my face
With stars to fill my dream.
I am a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been.

To sit with elders of a gentle race
This world has seldom seen.
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
When all will be revealed.

Talk an’ song from tongues of lilting grace
Whose sounds caress my ear.
But not a word I heard could I relate
The story was quite clear.
Whoa-ohh-oh
Whoa-ohhh-oh-oh

Ooooh
Oh baby, I’ve been flyin’
Nooo-yeah
Oh mama there
Ain’t no denyin’

Oh!
Ooooh-yes
I’ve been flyin’
Ma-ma-ma
Ain’t no denyin’
No denyin’-uh

Oh!
All I see turns to brown
As the sun burns the ground.
And my eyes fill with sand
As I scan this wasted land.
Tryin’ to find
Tryin’ to find
Where I’ve been.

Oh pilot of the storm who leaves no trace
Like thoughts inside a dream
Who hid the path that led me to that place
Of yellow desert screen.

My shangri-la beneath the summer moon
I will return again.
Sure as the dust that floats high in June
When movin’ through Kashmir.

Oh father of the four winds, fill my sails
‘Cross the sea of years (?)
With no provision but an open face
Along the straits of fear. (?)

Whoa-oh ah-oh
Whoa-ohhh oh

Ohhh

Whoa!
When I’m on,
When I’m on my way yeah!
When I see,
When I see the way
You stayyyyy-yeah!

Ooh-ooh yeah-yeah
Ooh-ooh yeah-yeah
When I’m downnn-yeah

Ooh-ooh yeah-yeah
Ooh-ooh yeah-yeah
When I’m down, so down

Ooh my baby
Oooh my baby let me take you there

Oh-oh
Come on, come on
Oh!
Let me take you there
Let me take you there

Song of the Day: Yesterdays by Guns N’ Roses

Yesterdays

Yesterday, There was so many things
I was never told
Now that I’m startin’ to learn
I feel I’m growing old

‘Cause yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Old pictures that I’ll always see
Time just fades the pages
In my book of memories
Prayers in my pocket
And no hand in destiny
I’ll keep on movin’ along
With no time to plant my feet

‘Cause yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Old pictures that I’ll always see
Some things could be better
If we’d all just let them be

Yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Got nothin’ for me

Yesterday, There was so many things
I was never shown
Suddenly this time I found
I’m on the streets and I’m all alone

Yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Old pictures that I’ll always see
I ain’t got time to reminisce old novelties

Yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Yesterday

Yesterday

Song of the Day: This Could Be The Night by Loverboy

Loverboy3

This Could Be The Night

Ask any girl
In this lonely world
Ask any girl
She’ll say make it last forever

I’m holding out my hand
I finally understand
So turn out the lights, oh yeah
We’ll make it last forever

I’ve been down the streets of desire
Sometimes I was so uninspired
You found what was locked up inside of me

Oh, whoa, this could be the night
The night to remember
We’ll make it last forever
This could be the night
Oh, to end all nights

I’ve always been the one
Lovin’ on the run
That’s when you come undone, oh girl
Why do you wait for me?

Out on the borderline
Between the hurtin’ lies
And the true emotions
That make it last forever

This could be the night
The night to remember
We’ll make it last forever
This could be the night
Oh, to end all nights

I’ve been down the streets of desire
Sometimes I was so uninspired
You found what was locked up inside of me

This could be the night
The night to remember
We’ll make it last forever
This could be the night
Oh, to end all nights

This could be the night
The night to remember
We’ll make it last forever
This could be the night
Oh, to end all nights

To end all nights

Song of the Day: In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel

PeterGabriel

In Your Eyes

Love I get so lost, sometimes
Days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
When I want to run away
I drive off in my car
But whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

All my instincts, they return
And the grand facade, so soon will burn
Without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes
The light the heat
In your eyes
I am complete
In your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes
I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
The heat I see in your eyes

Love, I don’t like to see so much pain
So much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

And all my instincts, they return
And the grand facade, so soon will burn
Without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes
The light the heat
In your eyes
I am complete
In your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes
I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
The heat I see in your eyes
In your eyes, in your eyes
In your eyes, in your eyes
In your eyes, in your eyes
