Song of the Day: No One Is To Blame by Howard Jones

HowardJones

No One Is To Blame

You can look at the menu but you just can’t eat
You can feel the cushions but you can’t have a seat
You can dip your foot in the pool but you can’t have a swim
You can feel the punishment but you can’t commit the sin

And you want her
and she wants you
We want everyone
And you want her
and she wants you
No one, no one, no one ever is to blame

You can build a mansion but you just can’t live in
You’re the fastest runner but you’re not allowed to win
Some break the rules
And live to count the cost
The insecurity is the thing that won’t get lost

And you want her
and she wants you
We want everyone
And you want her
and she wants you
No one, no one, no one ever is to blame

You can see the summit but you can’t reach it
It’s the last piece of the puzzle but you just can’t make it fit
Doctor says you’re cured but you still feel the pain
Aspirations in the clouds but your hopes go down the drain

And you want her
and she wants you
We want everyone
And you want her
and she wants you
No one, no one, no one ever is to blame
No one ever is to blame
No one ever is to blame

Song of the Day: Everytime You Go Away by Paul Young

Paul Young

Every Time You Go Away

Hey!, If we can solve any problem
Then why do we lose so many tears
Oh, and so you go again
When the leading man appears
Always the same thing
Can’t you see, we’ve got everything goin’ on and on and on

Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

Go on and go free, yeah
Maybe you’re too close to see
I can feel your body move
It doesn’t mean that much to me
I can’t go on sayin’ the same thing
Just can’t you see, we’ve got everything do you even know
We know

Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you, oh
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

I can’t go on sayin’ the same thing
‘Cause baby, can’t you see, we’ve got everything goin’ on
And On and on

Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

Elton John3

Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me

I can’t light no more of your darkness
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
I’m growing tired and time stands still before me
Frozen here on the ladder of my life

Too late to save myself from falling
I took a chance and changed your way of life
But you misread my meaning when I met you
Closed the door and left me blinded by the light

Don’t let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it’s always someone else I see
I’d just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me

I can’t find the right romantic line
But see me once and see the way I feel
Don’t discard me just because you think I mean you harm
But these cuts I have they need love to help them heal

Song of the Day: America by Neil Diamond

Neil Diamond

America

Far,
We’ve been traveling far
Without a home
But not without a star

Free,
Only want to be free
We huddle close
Hang on to a dream

On the boats and on the planes
They’re coming to America
Never looking back again,
They’re coming to America

Home
Don’t it seem so far away
Oh, we’re traveling light today
In the eye of the storm
In the eye of the storm

Home
To a new and a shiny place
Make our bed and we’ll say our grace
Freedom’s light burning warm
Freedom’s light burning warm

Everywhere around the world
They’re coming to America
Ev’ry time that flag’s unfurled
They’re coming to America

Got a dream to take them there
They’re coming to America
Got a dream they’ve come to share
They’re coming to America

They’re coming to America
They’re coming to America
They’re coming to America
They’re coming to America
Today, Today,
Today, Today, Today

My country ’tis of thee (today)
Sweet land of liberty (today)
Of thee I sing (today)
Of thee I sing
Today, Today, Today
Today, today, today……

Song of the Day: Don’t Dream It’s Over by Crowded House

Crowded House

Don’t Dream It’s Over

There is freedom within
there is freedom without
Try to catch a deluge in a paper cup
There’s a battle ahead
many battles are lost
But you’ll never see the end of the road
While you’re traveling with me

[CHORUS]
Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m towing my car
there’s a hole in the roof
my possessions are causing me suspicion but there’s no proof
in the paper today
tales of war and of waste
but you turn right over to the T.V. page

[CHORUS]
Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m walking again
to the beat of a drum
And I’m counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead
barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief

Hey now, Hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, Hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
You know they won’t win

Don’t let them win
Hey now, Hey now

Hey now, Hey now

Hey now, Hey now
Don’t let them win

They come, They come
Don’t let them win

Hey now, Hey now (yeah)

Hey now, Hey now

Judas Priest2

You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’

One life I’m gonna live it up
I’m takin’ flight said I’ll never get enough.
Stand tall I’m young and kinda proud
I’m on top as long as the music’s loud.
If you think I’ll sit around as the world goes by
You’re thinkin’ like a fool ’cause it’s a case of do or die.
Out there is a fortune waitin’ to be had
If you think I’ll let it go you’re mad
You’ve got another thing comin’.

That’s right here’s where the talkin’ ends
Well listen this night there’ll be some action spent.
Drive hard I’m callin’ all the shots
I got an ace card comin’ down on the rocks.

If you think I’ll sit around while you chip away my brain
Listen I ain’t foolin’ and you’d better think again.
Out there is a fortune waitin’ to be had
If you think I’ll let it go you’re mad
You’ve got another thing comin’.

In this world we’re livin’ in we have our share of sorrow
Answer now is don’t give in aim for a new tomorrow.

Oh so hot no time to take a rest yeah
Act tough ain’t room for second best.
Real strong got me some security
Hey I’m a big smash I’m goin’ for infinity yeah.

Song of the Day: Hold Me Now by Thompson Twins

Hold Me Now

I have a picture pinned to my wall
an image of you and of me
And we’re laughin’ with love at it all.
Look at our life now
tattered and torn

We fuss and we fight and delight in the tears
That we cry until dawn.

Oh
oh
hold me now. Oh
warm my heart

Stay with me
let lovin’ start
let lovin’ start.
You say I’m a dreamer
we’re two of a kind

Both of us searching for some perfect world
We know we’ll never find.
So perhaps I should leave here
yeah-yeah
go far away

But you know that there’s nowhere
That I’d rather be than with you here today.
Oh
oh
hold me now. Oh
warm my heart
. . .
Oh
hold me now. Oh
warm my heart
. . .

You asked if I love you
what can I say?
You know that I do and that this is just one of those games that we play.
So I’ll sing you a new song
please
don’t cry anymore

I’ll even ask your forgiveness though I don’t know
Just what I’m asking it for.
Oh
oh
hold me now. Oh
warm my heart
. . .
Oh
hold me now. Oh
warm my heart
. . .
Oh
hold me now. Oh
warm my heart
. . .
Oh
hold me now. Oh
warm my heart
. . .

Song of the Day: The Living Years by Mike and the Mechanics

Mike and the Mechanics

The Living Years

Every generation
Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations
Come beating on your door
I know that I’m a prisoner
To all my Father held so dear
I know that I’m a hostage
To all his hopes and fears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years
Crumpled bits of paper
Filled with imperfect thought
Stilted conversations
I’m afraid that’s all we’ve got
You say you just don’t see it
He says it’s perfect sense
You just can’t get agreement
In this present tense
We all talk a different language
Talking in defense
Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It’s too late when we die
To admit we don’t see eye to eye
So we open up a quarrel
Between the present and the past
We only sacrifice the future
It’s the bitterness that lasts
So Don’t yield to the fortunes
You sometimes see as fate
It may have a new perspective
On a different day
And if you don’t give up, and don’t give in
You may just be OK.
Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It’s too late when we die
To admit we don’t see eye to eye
I wasn’t there that morning
When my Father passed away
I didn’t get to tell him
All the things I had to say
I think I caught his spirit
Later that same year
I’m sure I heard his echo
In my baby’s new born tears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years
Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It’s too late when we die
To admit we don’t see eye to eye

Song of the Day: No One Like You by Scorpions

No One Like You

Girl it’s been a long time that we’ve been apart
Much too long for a man who needs love

I miss you since I’ve been away.
Babe it wasn’t easy to leave you alone

It’s getting harder each time that I go
If I had the choice
I would stay.

There’s no one like you
I can’t wait for the nights with you

I imagine the things we’ll do
I just wanna be loved by you.
No one like you – I can’t wait for the nights with you

Just imagine the things we’ll do
I just wanna be loved by you.

Girl there are really no words strong enough
To describe all my longing for love

I don’t want my feelings restrained.
Oh Babe I just need you like never before
Just imagine you’d come through this door

You’d take all my sorrow away.
There’s no one like you
I can’t wait for the nights with you

No one like you – I can’t wait for the nights with you
I imagine the things we’ll do
I just wanna be loved by you.
No one like you – I can’t wait for the nights with you

Just imagine the things we’ll do
I just wanna be loved by you.
There’s no one like you!
