Song of the Day: The Zoo by the Scorpions

scorpions3

The Zoo

The job is done and I go out
Another boring day
I leave it all behind me now
So many worlds away

I meet my girl, shes dressed to kill
And all we gonna do
Is walk around to catch the thrill
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

Enjoy the zoo
And walk down 42nd street
You wanna be excited too
And you will feel the heat

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

Song of the Day: Tom Sawyer by Rush

Tom Sawyer

A modern-day warrior
Mean mean stride
Today’s Tom Sawyer
Mean mean pride

Though his mind is not for rent
Don’t put him down as arrogant
His reserve, a quiet defense
Riding out the day’s events
The river

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the mist, catch the myth
Catch the mystery, catch the drift

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his skies are wide

Today’s Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the space he invades
He gets by on you

No his mind is not for rent
To any God or government
Always hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes aren’t permanent
But change is

And what you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the witness, catch the wit
Catch the spirit, catch the spit

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his eyes are wide

Exit the warrior
Today’s Tom Tawyer
He gets high on you
And the energy you trade
He gets right on to the friction of the day

Song of the Day: Someone Like You by Darryl Hall

Someone Like You

Only you could ever know
How hard it was for me to let you go
Hard to face all those nights
And suffer thru all the fools advice
Seems tome it’s not so bad
to try for the kind of love that we had
Oh I need that romance
One that grows strong
When it’s got no chance
Now you’re gone away
And I’m left to carry on
Ain’t nobody else gonna bear up to comparison
And if I can’t have the real thing
Then I’ve got to find someone
Just like you
What you got it’s what you need
There’s pain in that but it’s plain enough to see
I know I was satisfied
But nobody else came out of my side
I hope someone will come today
Somebody like you
Someone to take me all the way
Somebody like you
Someone to take your place
Somebody like you
Someone to fill this empty space

Song of the Day: Love Walks In by Van Halen

vanhalen

Love Walks In

Contact! is all it takes
To change your life to lose your place in time
Contact! asleep or awake
Coming around you may wake up to find
Questions deep within your eyes,
Now more than ever you realize

Chorus:
And then you sense a change
Nothing feels the same
All your dreams are strange, love comes walkin’ in
Some kind of alien
Waits for the opening
Then simply pulls a string

Another world, some other time
You lay your sanity on the line
Familiar faces, familiar sights
Reach back remember with all your might
Ohh there she stands in a silken gown
Silver lights shining down

Chorus:
And then you sense a change
Nothing feels the same
All your dreams are strange, love comes walkin’ in
Some kind of alien
Waits for the opening
Then simply pulls a string

Love comes walkin’ in

Solo

Sleep and dream that’s all I crave
I travel far across the milky way
To my master I become a slave
‘Til we meet again some other day
Where silence speaks as loud as war
The Earth returns to what it was before

Chorus:
And then you sense a change
Nothing feels the same
All your dreams are strange, love comes walkin’ in
Some kind of alien
Waits for the opening
Then simply pulls a string

Love comes walkin’ in

Baby pull the string

Love comes walkin’ in

Love comes walkin’ in, yeah

Song of the Day: Open Arms by Journey

Journey

Open Arms

Lying beside you here in the dark
Feeling your heart beat with mine
Softly you whisper, you’re so sincere
How could our love be so blind?

We sailed on together
We drifted apart
And here you are by my side

So now I come to you with open arms
Nothing to hide, believe what I say
So here I am with open arms
Hoping you’ll see what your love means to me, open arms

Living without you, living alone
This empty house seems so cold
Wanting to hold you, wanting you near
How much I wanted you home

But now that you’ve come back
Turned night into day
I need you to stay

So now I come to you with open arms
Nothing to hide, believe what I say
So here I am with open arms
Hoping you’ll see what your love means to me, open arms

Seether 2014

Words As Weapons

All I really want is something beautiful to say

Keep me locked up in your broken mind
I keep searching, never been able
To find a light behind your dead eyes
Not anything at all

You keep living in your own lie
Ever deceitful and ever unfaithful
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified
Take everything from my world

Say, “Can you help me?” right before the fall
Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

Keep me dumb, keep me paralyzed
Why try swimming? I’m drowning in fable
You’re not that saint that you externalize
You’re not anything at all

(All I really want is something beautiful to say)

It’s all so playful when you demonize
To spit out the hateful, you’re willing and able
Your words are weapons of the terrified
You’re nothing in my world

Say, “Can you help me?” right before the fall
Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

All I really want is something beautiful to say
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified
All I really want is something beautiful to say
You keep living in your own lie

All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever

All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever

You keep living in your own lie
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified

All I really want is something beautiful to say

Say, “Can you help me?” right before the fall?
Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

All I really want is something beautiful to say
Words are weapons of the terrified
All I really want is something beautiful to say
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified

All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever

All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever

Song of the Day: What’s Love Got To Do With It by Tina Turner

Tina Turner

What’s Love Got To Do With It

You must understand
That the touch of your hand
Makes my pulse react
That it’s only the thrill
Of boy meeting girl
Opposites attract

It’s physical
Only logical
You must try to ignore
That it means more than that

[Chorus:]
Oh what’s love got to do, got to do with it
What’s love but a second hand emotion
What’s love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart
When a heart can be broken

It may seem to you
That I’m acting confused
When you’re close to me
If I tend to look dazed
I’ve read it someplace
I’ve got cause to be

There’s a name for it
There’s a phrase that fits
But whatever the reason
You do it for me

[Chorus]

I’ve been taking on a new direction
But I have to say
I’ve been thinking about my own protection
It scares me to feel this way

[Chorus]

What’s love got to do, got to do with it
What’s love but a sweet old fashioned notion
What’s love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken

Song of the Day: Say It Isn’t So by Hall and Oates

Hall and Oates

Say It Isn’t So

Say it, say it isn’t so
Say it, say it isn’t so

Say it isn’t so painful
To tell me that you’re dissatisfied
Last time I asked you I really got a lame excuse
I know that you lied

Now wicked things can happen
You see ‘em goin’ down in war
But when you play in a quiet way
That bites it even more

Say it, tell me what you want, yeah, I’ll do it, baby
I promise right now
Say it, who propped you up when you were stopped low motivation
Had you on the ground

I know your first reaction
You slide away, hide away, goodbye
But if there’s a doubt maybe I can give out
A thousand reasons why you have to

Say it isn’t so, it isn’t so
Say it isn’t so, oh, no
Say it isn’t so, it isn’t so
Oh say it isn’t so, oh, no

Say it, we like to be the strangers at the party
Two rebels in a shell
Say it, you like to move with the best of them
You know we move so well

Don’t need someone to lean on
I know where there’s an open door
But if I’m faced with being replaced
I want you even more

So baby, say it isn’t so, it isn’t so
Oh I say it isn’t so, oh, no
Now say it isn’t so, it isn’t so
Woah say it isn’t so, oh, no

Say it, say it isn’t so
Say it, say it isn’t so
Say it, say it isn’t so

Why you gonna go?
Do you have to say you wanna go?

Ooh, ooh baby, say it isn’t
Say, say, say it isn’t so
Why do you have to say it isn’t so
I know it’s so hard for you, so hard , don’t say, baby

There must be some other way
Don’t have to some other way
Aah, you don’t have to say
Aah, you don’t have to say, you know I want a make you

Song of the Day: Every Rose Has Its Thorn by Poison

poison2

Every Rose Has Its Thorn

We both lie silently still in the dead of the night
Although we both lie close together we feel miles apart inside
Was it something I said or something I did?
Did my words not come out right?
Though I tried not to hurt you
Though I tried
But I guess that’s why they say

[Chorus:]
Every rose has its thorn
Just like every night has its dawn
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
Every rose has its thorn

Yeah it does

I listen to our favorite song playing on the radio
Hear the DJ say love’s a game of easy come and easy go
But I wonder does he know?
Has he ever felt like this?
And I know that you’d be here right now
If I could have let you know somehow
I guess

[Chorus]

Though it’s been a while now
I can still feel so much pain
Like a knife that cuts you the wound heals
But the scar, that scar remains

I know I could have saved a love that night if I’d known what to say
Instead of makin’ love we both made our separate ways
And now I hear you found somebody new
And that I never meant that much to you
To hear that tears me up inside
And to see you cuts me like a knife
I guess

[Chorus]
