Here I Go Again

I don’t know where I’m going, but I sure know where I’ve been
Hanging on the promises in the songs of yesterday
And I’ve made up my mind
I ain’t wasting no more time
Here I go again, here I go again

Though I keep searching for an answer
I never seem to find what I’m looking for
Oh Lord, I pray you give me strength to carry on
‘Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

Here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I’ve ever known
Like a drifter, I was born to walk alone
And I’ve made up my mind
I ain’t wasting no more time

I’m just another heart in need of rescue
Waiting on love’s sweet charity
And I’m gonna hold on for the rest of my days
‘Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I’ve ever known
Like a drifter, I was born to walk alone
And I’ve made up my mind
I ain’t wasting no more time

But here I go again, here I go again
Here I go again, here I go

‘Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I’ve ever known
Like a drifter, I was born to walk alone
And I’ve made up my mind
I ain’t wasting no more time

And here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I’ve ever known
Like a drifter, I was born to walk alone
‘Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I’ve ever known
Like a drifter, I was born to walk alone

Take The Money And Run

This here’s a story about Billy Joe and Bobbie Sue
Two young lovers with nothin’ better to do
Than sit around the house, get high, and watch the tube
And here is what happened when they decided to cut loose

They headed down to, ooh, old El Paso
That’s where they ran into a great big hassle
Billy Joe shot a man while robbing his castle
Bobbie Sue took the money and run

Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run

Billy Mack is a detective down in Texas
You know he knows just exactly what the facts is
He ain’t gonna let those two escape justice
He makes his livin’ off of the people’s taxes

Bobbie Sue, whoa, whoa, she slipped away
Billy Joe caught up to her the very next day
They got the money, hey
You know they got away
They headed down south and they’re still running today
Singin’ go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run

Warriors Of The World (United)

Here our soldiers stand from all around the world
Waiting in a line to hear the battle cry
All are gathered here, victory is near
The sound will fill the hall, bringing power to us all

We alone are fighting for metal that is true
We own the right to live the fight, we’re here for all of you
Now swear the blood upon your steel will never dry
Stand and fight together beneath the battle sky

[Chorus:]
Brothers everywhere – raise your hands into the air
We’re warriors, warriors of the world
Like thunder from the sky – sworn to fight and die
We’re warriors, warriors of the world

Many stand against us, but they will never win
We said we would return and here we are again
To bring them all destruction, suffering and pain
We are the hammer of the gods, we are thunder, wind and rain.

There they wait in fear with swords in feeble hands
With dreams to be a king, first one should be a man
I call about and charge them all with a life that is a lie
And in their final hour they shall confess before they die

[Repeat chorus]

If I should fall in battle, my brothers who fight by my side
Gather my horse and weapons, tell my family how I died
Until then I will be strong, I will fight for all that is real
All who stand in my way will die by steel

Brothers everywhere – raise your hands into the air
We’re warriors, warriors of the world

[Repeat chorus to fade]

Song of the Day: Redeemer of Souls by Judas Priest

Judas Priest

Redeemer of Souls

Time to settle the score
He’s loaded to feel their remorse
Steadfast strong that’s for sure
The deal of his life takes its course
No giving in
They don’t understand
They get to give up and to meet his demands

Count down coming your way
He’s the last to obey
Watch him seizing the day
Redeemer – redeemer of souls

There’s no holding him back
The ransom announces his deeds
He’s not cutting you slack
Just taking what ever he needs
Diamonds for eyes
As he begins
On that two wheeler from hell on the wind

Now he’s setting the tune
They know the stare down is soon
Vengeance comes at high noon
Redeemer of souls
On the skyline
The stranger draws near
Feel the heat and he’s shaking with fear

Countdown coming your way
He’s the last to obey
Watch him seizing the day
Redeemer of souls

Song of the Day: Taunting Cobras by Savatage

Taunting Cobras

Hey You
She’s gonna get you
If you go walking by this corner slow
Don¹t think she’s gonna let you leave
Just because you want to go
Boy you ain¹t seen nothin’ yet
It’s a long train of regret
Puppets get no second chance
Pull that string they gotta dance
Parallel addiction is a double crucifixion

When your always out there feeding your head
Always channel surfing cause your brain it isn’t working
When you¹re looking at that moment just remember
Don’t look
Don’t stray
Don’t talk it over
No time
No way
Listen to me I’m cold sober
You’re just out there taunting Cobras
Hey you
Who’s gonna warn you

When it’s something you don’t want to know
Don¹t think
It won’t deform you
Twist your mind then let it go
Boy you ain’t seen nothin’ yet
Its a long train of regret
Puppets get no second chance
Pull that strings they gotta dance

Welcome to the prison
Let me tell ya what you¹re missing
I’ve been coming here for nearly a year
Out there was my corner
‘Till I came in for a water
Mixed with Whiskey
And a chaser of sideway glances
Don’t look
Don’t stray
Don’t talk it over
No time
No way
Listen to me I’m cold sober
You’re just out there taunting Cobras

Song of the Day: I Stand Alone by Jackyl

Jackyl2

I Stand Alone

Well everytime I move
Every step I make
You know I just can’t seem to take
The right direction

I’m always wrong
I’m never right
Right or wrong
There always seems to be a correction

And I give everything I got
And they take take take
Everything I’m giving

My back is tired
My legs both ache
In this life
There is no cake
This life I’m livin’

I stand alone today
Don’t ask me why I feel
I just know I feel this way
I stand alone today

Well you look at me
Shake your head
Don’t like my hair
You’re so misled…you do!

But the curse is more than on my head
Sometimes I think I’m better off dead
It’s worse than voodoo

And I’m reaching out for help
But it’s no no no no no
Until you give in

My back is tired
My legs both ache
In this life
There is no cake
This life I’m livin’

I stand alone today
Don’t ask me why I feel
I just know I feel this way
I stand alone today

They take, they take
Everything I’m givin’
It’s a rough rough life
This life I’m livin’
Give me more, give me more
I take more every day
I’m gonna take it
Till they take take take take take me away

I I I stand alone today
I I I stand alone today
I I I stand alone today
I I I stand alone today
I… I…

Song of the Day: Iris by Goo-Goo Dolls

googoodolls

Iris

And I’d give up forever to touch you
‘Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be
And I don’t want to go home right now
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
‘Cause sooner or later it’s over
I just don’t want to miss you tonight

And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can’t fight the tears that ain’t coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
And you bleed just to know you’re alive

And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am

Song of the Day: Hotel California by Eagles

The Eagles

Hotel California

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway;
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself,
“This could be Heaven or this could be Hell”
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor,
I thought I heard them say…

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year (Any time of year)
You can find it here

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes Benz
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

So I called up the Captain,
“Please bring me my wine”

He said, “We haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine”
And still those voices are calling from far away,
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say…

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
They livin’ it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise)
Bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink champagne on ice
And she said “We are all just prisoners here, of our own device”
And in the master’s chambers,
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can’t kill the beast

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
“Relax, ” said the night man,
“We are programmed to receive.
You can check-out any time you like,
But you can never leave! “

Song of the Day #2: Renegade by Styx *Happy Birthday Melody*

Renegade

Oh mama, I’m in fear for my life from the long arm of the law
Lawman has put an end to my running and I’m so far from my home
Oh mama, I can hear your crying you’re so scared and all alone
Hangman is coming down from the gallows and I don’t have very long

The jig is up the news is out they’ve finally found me
The renegade who had it made retrieved for a bounty
Never more to go astray
This will be the end today of the wanted man

Oh mama, I’ve been years on the lamb and had a high price on my head
Lawman said get him dead or alive now it’s for sure he’ll see me dead
Dear mama, I can hear you crying you’re so scared and all alone
Hangman is coming down from the gallows and I don’t have very long

The jig is up, the news is out they finally found me
The renegade who had it made retrieved for a bounty
Never more to go astray
The judge’ll have revenge today on the wanted man

Oh mama, I’m in fear for my life from the long arm of the law
Hangman is coming down from the gallows and I don’t have very long

The jig is up, the news is out they finally found me
The renegade who had it made retrieved for a bounty
Never more to go astray
This’ll be the end today of the wanted man, the wanted man

[Incomprehensible]
No, no, no, no

Oh mama, don’t let him take me
Oh no, oh no, no, no, no, no, no

Song of the Day: Sentimental Lady by Bob Welch

Sentimental Lady

You are here and warm
But I could look away and you’d be gone
‘Cause we live in a time
When meaning falls in splinters from our lives
And that’s why I’ve traveled far
‘Cause I come so together where you are

Yes, and all of the things that I said that I wanted
Come rushing by in my head when I’m with you
Fourteen joys and a will to be merry
All of the things that they say are very

Sentimental gentle wind
Blowing through my life again
Sentimental lady, gentle one (All I need is you)
Sentimental gentle wind
Blowing through my life again
Sentimental lady, gentle one

Ooh, sentimental lady

Yes, and all of the things that I said that I wanted
Come rushing by in my head when I’m with you
Fourteen joys and a will to be merry
All of the things that they say are very

Sentimental gentle wind
Blowing through my life again
Sentimental lady, gentle one (All I need is you)
Sentimental gentle wind
Blowing through my life again
Sentimental lady, gentle one (All I need is you)

All of the things that I said that I wanted
Come rushing by in my head when I’m with you
Fourteen joys and a will to be merry
All of the things that they say are very (All I need is you)

All of the things that I said that I wanted
Come rushing by in my head when I’m with you
