Walk

Can’t you see I’m easily bothered by persistence
One step from lashing out at you…
You want in to get under my skin
And call yourself a friend
I’ve got more friends like you
What do I do?

(Pre) Is there no standard anymore?
What it takes, who I am, where I’ve been
Belong
You can’t be something you’re not
Be yourself, by yourself
Stay away from me
A lesson learned in life
Known from the dawn of time

(Chorus)

Respect, walk

Run your mouth when I’m not around
It’s easy to achieve
You cry to weak friends that sympathize

Can you hear the violins playing your song?
Those same friends tell me your every word

(Pre)

(Chorus)

Are you talking to me?
No way punk

Song of the Day: We Rock by Dio

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KT5AvKlPWA0

We Rock

[Verse 1]
You watch their faces
You’ll see the traces of the things they want to be
But only we can see
They come for killing, they leave and still it seems
The cloud that’s left behind can penetrate your mind

[Chorus]
But sail on, sing your song, carry on
Cause we rock, we rock
We rock

[Verse 2]
We pray to someone
But when it’s said and done
It’s really all the same with just a different name
So many voices, all giving choices
If we listen, they will say, oh we can find the way

[Chorus]
But we’ll sail on, sing a song, carry on
Cause we rock, we rock
We rock, we rock
We rock, we rock
We rock, we rock
We rock

We rock

[Verse 1]
You watch their faces
You’ll see the traces of the things they want to be
But only we can see
They come for killing, they leave and still it seems
The cloud that’s left behind can penetrate your mind

[Chorus]
Sail on, sing your song, carry on
We rock, we rock
We rock, we rock
We rock, we rock
We rock, we rock

Ride out, stand and shout, carry on
Sail on, sing your song, carry on
Cause we rock, we rock
See how we rock
We rock, that’s rock
We rock, we rock
We rock

Song of the Day: In the Air Tonight by Phil Collins

[Chorus]
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
And I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight? oh Lord, oh Lord

[Verse 1]
Well, if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
I’ve seen your face before, my friend
But I don’t know if you know who I am
Well, I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off that grin, I know where you’ve been
It’s all been a pack of lies

[Chorus]
And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
Well, I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
And I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord

[Verse 2]
Well, I remember!
I remember, don’t worry
How could I ever forget?
It’s the first time, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up
No, you don’t fool me
Well, the hurt doesn’t show, but the pain still grows
It’s no stranger to you or me

[Drum solo]

[Chorus]
And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
Well, I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord
Well, I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord

[Outro]
I can feel it coming in the air tonight! Oh Lord
Well, I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life! Oh Lord!
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord!
Well, I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life! Oh Lord, Oh Lord!
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord!
Well, I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life! Oh Lord, Oh Lord!
I can feel it in the air tonight…

Song of the Day: Raspberry Beret by Prince

Raspberry Beret

I was working part time in a five-and-dime
My boss was Mr. McGee
He told me several times that he didn’t like my kind
‘Cause I was a bit too leisurely

Seems that I was busy doing something close to nothing
But different than the day before
That’s when I saw her, ooh, I saw her
She walked in through the out door, out door

She wore a
Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn’t wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

Built like she was
She had the nerve to ask me
If I planned to do her any harm
So, look here
I put her on the back of my bike
And we went riding
Down by old man Johnson’s farm

I said now, overcast days never turned me on
But something about the clouds and her mixed
She wasn’t to bright
But I could tell when she kissed me
She knew how to get her kicks

She wore a
Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn’t wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

The rain sounds so cool when it hits the barn roof
And the horses wonder who you are
Thunder drowns out what the lightning sees
You feel like a movie star

Listen
They say the first time ain’t the greatest
But I tell ya
If I had the chance to do it all again
I wouldn’t change a stroke
‘Cause baby I’m the most
With a girl as fine as she was then

The kind you find (The kind you find)
The kind you find (In a second hand store)
Oh no no
(Raspberry beret)
(And if it was warm)
Where have all the raspberry women gone?
Yeah (Raspberry beret)

I think I, I think I, I think I love her

No no no
No no no (The kind you find)
(In a second hand store)
(Raspberry beret)
Tell me
Where have all the raspberry women gone? (And if it was warm she)
(Wouldn’t wear much more)
(Raspberry beret)

Song of the Day: Smuggler’s Blues by Glenn Frey

Smuggler’s Blues

There’s trouble on the street tonight
I can feel it in my bones
I had a premonition that
He should not go alone

I knew the gun was loaded
But I didn’t think he’d kill
Everything exploded
And the blood began to spill

So, baby
Here’s your ticket
Put the suitcase in your hand
Here’s a little money now

Do it just the way we planned
You be cool for twenty hours
And I’ll pay you twenty grand

I’m sorry it went down like this
Someone had to lose
It’s the nature of the business
It’s the smuggler’s blues
Smuggler’s blues

The sailors and the pilots
The soldiers and the law
The payoffs and the ripoffs
And the things nobody saw

No matter if it’s heroin
Cocaine or hash
You’ve got to carry weapons
Cause you always carry cash

There’s lots of shady characters
Lots of dirty deals
Every name’s an alias
In case somebody squeals

It’s the lure of easy money
It’s gotta very strong appeal
Perhaps you’d understand it better
Standing in my shoes

It’s the ultimate enticement
It’s the smuggler’s blues
Smuggler’s blues

See it in the headlines
You hear it every day
They say they’re gonna stop it
But it doesn’t go away

They move it through Miami
Sell it in L.A
They hide it up in Telluride
I mean it’s here to stay

It’s propping up the governments
Of Columbia and Peru
You ask any DEA man
He’ll say there’s nothing we can do

From the office of the President
Right down
To me and you
Me and you

It’s a losing proposition
But one you can’t refuse
It’s the politics of contraband
It’s the smuggler’s blues
Smuggler’s blues

Song of the Day: Stranded by Tangier

tangier

Stranded
Been about a year
now little baby
since you left me on my own
Tryin to find a way now to forget you
as I walk the streets alone

Then I hear the wind
and it calls your name
tells me now that things won’t be the same
baby I’m caught up in the pack
Stranded
without your love
Stranded
from the lord above
all I’m searchin for
is just a little more of
your precious love

Was it hard to tell me that it’s over
I know that I’ve done wrong
Winter comes around here so quickly
I’ve been waiting here so long
But If I knew that I would’ve tooken the time
baby cause the words are hard to find

Stranded
without your love
Stranded
from the lord above
all I’m searchin for
is just a little more of
your precious love

Oh I will be right here for you
and I hope you felt that way too
If only I could turn back the time
Give you all my heart could give
Cause I can’t seem to get you off my mind

Stranded
without your love
Stranded
from the lord above
all I’m searchin for
is just a little more of
your precious love

Stranded
without your love
Stranded
from the lord above
All I’m searchin for
is just a little more of
your precious love

Stranded
Stranded

Song of the Day: Stand Back by Stevie Nicks

Stand Back

No one looked as I walked by

Just an invitation would have been just fine.
Said ‘no’ to him again and again – first he took my heart then he ran.
No one knows how I feel
What I say unless you read between mylines

One man walked away from me – first he took my hand
take my home.
Stand back
Stand back

In the middle of my room I did not hear from you.
It’s alright
It’s alright to be standing in a line

Standing in a line
Be standing in a line
I would cry.
Do not turn away
My friend
like a willow I can bend.
No man called my name
No man came.
So I walked on down away from you

Maybe your attention was more than you could do?
One man did not call
He asked me for my love and that was all.

Stand back
Stand back
In the middle of my room I did not hear from you
It’s alright it’s alright
To be standin’ in a line
To be standin’ in a line
I would cry


So I walked on down the line away from you

Maybe your attention was more than I could do.
One man did not fall
Well
He asked me for my love
That was all.
Stand back
Stand back
In the middle of my room I did not hear from you
It’s alright it’s alright
To be standin’ in a line
standin’ in a line
To be standing in a line
I could cry
I feel I need a little sympathy
Well I need a little sympathy
Well I need a little sympathy
Well you could be standing in
Stand Back
Well you could be standing in
Stand Back
Well you could be standing in
Stand Back
Why don’t you take me home?
Why don’t you take me home?
Stand Back
Take me home
It’s alright
Take me home

Song of the Day: The Heart of the Matter by Don Henley

DonHenley

The Heart Of The Matter

I got the call today, I didn’t wanna hear
But I knew that it would come
An old true friend of ours was talkin’ on the phone
She said you found someone
And I thought of all the bad luck,
And the struggles we went through
And how I lost me and you lost you
What are these voices outside love’s open door
Make us throw off our contentment
And beg for something more?

I’m learning to live without you now
But I miss you sometimes
The more I know, the less I understand
All the things I thought I knew, I’m learning again
I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the Heart of the Matter
But my will gets weak
And my thoughts seem to scatter
But I think it’s about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore

These times are so uncertain
There’s a yearning undefined
…People filled with rage
We all need a little tenderness
How can love survive in such a graceless age
The trust and self-assurance that can lead to happiness
They’re the very things we kill, I guess
Pride and competition cannot fill these empty arms
And the work I put between us,
Doesn’t keep me warm

I’m learning to live without you now
But I miss you, Baby
The more I know, the less I understand
All the things I thought I figured out, I have to learn again
I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the Heart of the Matter
But everything changes
And my friends seem to scatter
But I think it’s about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore

There are people in your life who’ve come and gone
They let you down and hurt your pride
Better put it all behind you; life goes on
You keep carrin’ that anger, it’ll eat you inside

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the Heart of the Matter
But my will gets weak
And my thoughts seem to scatter
But I think it’s about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the Heart of the Matter
Because the flesh will get weak
And the ashes will scatter
So I’m thinkin’ about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore

Song of the Day: Heat of the Moment by Asia

Heat of the Moment

I never meant to be so bad to you
One thing I said that I would never do
A look from you and I would fall from grace
And that would wipe the smile right from my face

Do you remember when we used to dance
And incidents arose from circumstance?
One thing led to another, we were young
And we would scream together songs unsung

It was the heat of the moment
Telling me what my heart meant
The heat of the moment shone in your eyes

And now you find yourself in ’82
The disco hot-spots hold no charm for you
You can’t concern yourself with bigger things
You catch the pearl and ride the dragon’s wings

‘Cause it’s the heat of the moment
The heat of the moment
The heat of the moment shone in your eyes

And when your looks are gone and you’re alone
How many nights you sit beside the phone?
What were the things you wanted for yourself?
Teenage ambition you remember well

It was the heat of the moment
Telling you what your heart meant
The heat of the moment shone in your eyes

It was the heat of the moment
Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment shone in your eyes

Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment

Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment

Song of the Day: Maneater by Daryl Hall and John Oates

Maneater

She’ll only come out at nights
The lean and hungry type
Nothing is new
I’ve seen her here before
Watching and waiting
Ooh, she’s sittin’ with you
But her eyes are on the door

So many have paid to see
What you think
You’re gettin’ for free
The woman is wild
A she-cat tamed
By the purr of a Jaguar
Money’s the matter
If you’re in it for love
You ain’t gonna get too far

(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Watch out boy
She’ll chew you up
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
She’s a maneater
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Watch out boy
She’ll chew you up
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
She’s a maneater

I wouldn’t if I were you
I know what she can do
She’s deadly man
And she could really rip your world apart
Mind over matter
Ooh, the beauty is there
But a beast is in the heart

(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Watch out boy
She’ll chew you up
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
She’s a maneater
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Watch out boy
She’ll chew you up
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
She’s a maneater

[Instrumental Interlude]

Ooooooooh
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Here she comes
Watch out boy
She’ll chew you up
(Whoa-oh, here she comes
(Watch out) she’s a maneater
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
(She’s a maneater)
Ooh, she’ll chew you u
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Here she comes, she’s a maneater
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
(Watch out)
She’ll only come out at night, ooh-oh
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Here she comes
She’s a maneater
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
(She’s a maneater)
The woman is wild, whoooa
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Here she comes
Watch out boy, watch out boy
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Oh, watch out, watch out
Watch out, watch out
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
(Yeah, yeah) she’s a maneater
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
(She’s a maneater)
She’s watching and waiting, ooh-oh
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Oh, she’s a maneater
