Song of the Day: Runaway Train by Soul Asylum

Runaway Train

Call you up in the middle of the night
Like a firefly without a light
You were there like a slow torch burning
I was a key that could use a little turning

So tired that I couldn’t even sleep
So many secrets I couldn’t keep
Promised myself I wouldn’t weep
One more promise I couldn’t keep

It seems no one can help me now
I’m in too deep
There’s no way out
This time I have really led myself astray

Runaway train never going back
Wrong way on a one way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I’m neither here nor there

Can you help me remember how to smile
Make it somehow all seem worthwhile
How on earth did I get so jaded
Life’s mystery seems so faded

I can go where no one else can go
I know what no one else knows
Here I am just drownin’ in the rain
With a ticket for a runaway train

Everything is cut and dry
Day and night, earth and sky
Somehow I just don’t believe it

Runaway train never going back
Wrong way on a one way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I’m neither here nor there

Bought a ticket for a runaway train
Like a madman laughin’ at the rain
Little out of touch, little insane
Just easier than dealing with the pain

Runaway train never comin’ back
Wrong way on a one way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I’m neither here nor there

Runaway train never comin’ back
Runaway train tearin’ up the track
Runaway train burnin’ in my veins
Runaway but it always seems the same

Song of the Day: Irresistible Force by Jane’s Addiction

Janes Addiction

Irresistible Force

We didn’t know that it would blow up
With such might
We stars are even brighter
Contrasted by the night

Sent out shock waves
Filled up the outer space
Even the ghost came
To the late, late, late show
Watch us play

Everything went tossing
Everyone was talking
Making up their faces
Wonder what we look like naked?

Ah! The irresistible force met the immovable object
Oh!
Ah! The irresistible force met the immovable object

Banging and banging
And banging and banging
And banging
Together

We’ve become a big business
Oh, a galaxy merger
The two of us a big bang
God is a real man
God is a dad [x2]

Ah! The irresistible force met the immovable object
Oh!
Ah! The irresistible force met the immovable object

Banging and banging
And banging and banging
And banging together

Ah! The irresistible force met the immovable object
Oh!

Some may call me a lucky shot
No, but it was not

Banging and banging
And banging and banging
And banging and banging
Banging and banging
And banging and banging
And banging together

Song of the Day: Interstate Love Song by Stone Temple Pilots

stonetemplepilots

Interstate Love Song

Waiting on a Sunday afternoon
For what I read between the lines,
Your lies.
Feelin’ like a hand in rusted shame
So do you laugh or does it cry?
Reply?

Leavin’ on a southern train
Only yesterday you lied,
Promises of what I seemed to be
Only watched the time go by,
All of these things you said to me.

Breathing is the hardest thing
To do. with all I’ve said and
All that’s dead for you,
You lied – good bye

Leavin’ on a southern train
Only yesterday you lied
Promises of what I seemed to be
Only watched the time go by,
All of these things I said to you.

Song of the Day: The Stroke by Billy Squier

The Stroke

Now everybody, have you heard, if you’re in the game
Then the stroke’s the word
Don’t take no rhythm,
Don’t take no style
Gotta thirst for killin’,
Grab your vial uh
Put your right hand out, give a firm handshake
Talk to me about that one big break
Spread your ear pollution, both far and wide
Keep your contributions by your side and
Stroke me, stroke me
Could be a winner boy you move mighty well
Stroke me, stroke me (stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
You got your number down
Stroke me, stroke me
Say you’re a winner but babe, you’re just a sinner now
Put your left foot out, keep it all in place
Work your way right into my face
First you try to bet me, you make my backbone slide
When you find you’ve bled me, slip on by, and
Stroke me, stroke me
Give me the reason this is all night long
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
Get yourself together boy
Stroke me, stroke me
Say you’re a winner but man you’re just a sinner now
(Stroke, stroke, stroke, stroke, stroke, stroke, stroke)
Better listen now
Said it ain’t no joke
Don’t let your conscience fail ya’
Just do the stroke
Don’t ya’ take no chances
Keep your eye on top
Do your fancy dances
You can’t stop you just
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke, stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke, stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke, stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke) do it
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me (keep on)
(Stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
Say you’re a winner but man you’re just a sinner now

Chris Cornell

Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart

Every time I stare into the sun
Trying to find a reason to go on
All I ever get is burned and blind,
Until the sky bleeds the pouring rain

When you came along the time was right
Pulled me like an apple red and ripe
Wasn’t very long you took a bite
And did me wrong, and it serves me right

And I nearly forgot my broken heart
It’s taking me miles away,
From the memory of how we broke apart
Here we go round again, again

Every little key unlocks the door,
Every little secret has a lie
Trying to take a picture of the sun
It won’t help you to see the light
Every little word upon your lips
Makes a little cut where blood pours out
Every little drop of blood a kiss that I won’t miss
Not for anything

And I nearly forgot my broken heart
It’s taking me miles away,
From the memory of how we broke apart
Here we go round again

Every single feeling tells me this is leading to a heart
In broken little pieces and you know I need this
Like a hole in the head

Every single feeling tells me this is leading to a heart
In broken little pieces and you know I need this
Like a hole in the head

And I nearly forgot my broken heart
It’s taking me miles away,
From the memory of how we broke apart
Here we go round again

And I nearly forgot my broken heart
It’s taking me miles away,
From the memory of how we broke apart
Here we go round again…

Song of the Day: Say Hello to Heaven by Temple of the Dog

Say Hello to Heaven

Please, mother mercy
Take me from this place
And the long winded curses
I keep hearing in my head
Words never listen
And teachers never learn
Now I´m warm from the candle
But I feel too cold to burn
He came from an island
And he died from the street
He hurt so bad like a soul breaking
But he never said nothing to me
So say hello to heaven
New like a baby
Lost like a prayer
The sky was your playground
But the cold ground was your bed
Poor stargazer
She´s got no tears in her eyes
Smooth like whisper
She knows that love heals all wounds with time
Now it seems like too much love
Is never enough, you better seek out
Another road ´cause this one has
Ended abrupt, say hello to heaven
I never wanted
To write these words down for you
With the pages of phrases
Of things we´ll never do
So I blow out the candle, and
I put you to bed
Since you can´t say to me
Now how the dogs broke your bone
There´s just one thing left to be said
Say hello to heaven

Song of the Day: Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden

Soundgarden

Black Hole Sun

In my eyes
Indisposed
In disguise
As no one knows
Hides the face
Lies the snake
The sun
In my disgrace
Boiling heat
Summer stench
neath the black
The sky looks dead
Call my name
Through the cream
And Ill hear you
Scream again

Black hole sun
Wont you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Wont you come
Wont you come

Stuttering
Cold and damp
Steal the warm wind
Tired friend
Times are gone
For honest men
And sometimes
Far too long
For snakes
In my shoes
A walking sleep
And my youth
I pray to keep
Heaven send
Hell away
No one sings
Like you
Anymore

Hang my head
Drown my fear
Till you all just
Disappear

Audioslave

Show Me How To Live

In with the early dawn
Moving right along
I couldn’t buy an eye of sleep
And in the aching night
Under satellite
I was not received
With the stolen parts
A telephone in my heart
Someone get me a priest
To put my mind to bed
This ringing in my head
Is this a cure is or is this a disease

Hey hey I said
Near as I can figure
You gave me life now
Show me how to live
Hey hey I said
Near as I can figure
You gave me life now
Show me how to live

In the afterbirth
On the quiet earth
Let this things remind me
You thought you made amend
You better think again
Before my row defines you

Hey hey I said
Near as I an figure
You gave me life now show me how to live
Hey hey I said
Near as I can figure
You gave me life now
Show me how to live

And in your waiting hands
I will land
And roll out of my skin
And in your final hours I will stand
Ready to begin
Ready to begin
Ready to begin
Ready to begin

Hey hey I said
Near as I can figure
You gave me life now
Show me how to live
Hey hey I said
Near as I can figure
You gave me life now
Show me how to live
Show me how to live
Show me how to live
Show me how to live
Show me how to live

Song of the Day: Love Of A Lifetime by Firehouse

Love Of A Lifetime

I guess the time was right
for us to say
We’d take our time and live our lives
together day by day
Make a wish and
send it on a prayer
We know our dreams can all come true
if loving we can share

With you I’ll never wonder
will you be there for me
With you I’ll never wonder
you’re the right one for me

(chorus)
I finally found a love of a lifetime
A love to last my whole life through
I finally found a love of a lifetime
Forever in my heart
I finally found a love of a lifetime

With every kiss our love
is like brand new
And every star up in the sky
was made for me and you
Still we both know
that the road is long
We know that we will be together
because our love is strong
(chorus)

(instrumental)

(chorus)

(Finally found a love of a lifetime)
Love of a lifetime
(Finally found a love of a lifetime)
Finally found a love
(Finally found a love of a lifetime)
Ooh, forever in my heart
I finally found a love of a lifetime
Ooh ooh ooh

Song of the Day: Storytime by Nightwish

Storytime

‘Twas the night before,
When all through the world,
No words, no dreams
Then one day,
A writer by a fire
Imagined all of Gaia
Took a journey into a child-man’s heart…

A painter on the shore
Imagined all the world
Within the snowflake on his palm
Unframed by poetry
A canvas of awe
Planet Earth falling back in to the stars…

I am the voice of Never-Never-Land,
The innocence, the dreams of every man,
I am the empty crib of Peter-Pan,
A silent kite against the blue, blue sky,
Every chimney, every moonlit sight
I am the story that will read you real,
Every memory that you hold dear

I am the journey,
I am the destination,
I am the home

The tale that reads you
A way to taste the night,
The elusive high
Follow the madness,
Alice, you know once did

Imaginarium, a dream emporium
Caress the tales
And they will dream you real
A storyteller’s game,
Lips that intoxicate
The core of all life
Is a limitless chest of tales…

I am the voice of Never-Never-Land,
The innocence, the dreams of every man,
I am the empty crib of Peter-Pan,
A silent kite against the blue, blue sky,
Every chimney, every moonlit sight
I am the story that will read you real,
Every memory that you hold dear
I am the voice of Never-Never-Land,
The innocence, the dreams of every man,
Searching heavens for another earth…
