Song of the Day: Power of Love by Huey Lewis and the News

Huey Lewis and the News

The Power Of Love

The power of love is a curious thing
make a one man weep, make another man sing
Change a hawk to a little white dove
more than a feeling that’s the power of love

Tougher than diamonds, rich like cream
Stronger and harder than a bad girl’s dream
make a bad one good make a wrong one right
power of love that keeps you home at night

[Chorus 1:]
You don’t need money, don’t take fame
Don’t need no credit card to ride this train
It’s strong and it’s sudden and it’s cruel sometimes
but it might just save your life
That’s the power of love
That’s the power of love

First time you feel it, it might make you sad
Next time you feel it it might make you mad
But you’ll be glad baby when you’ve found
that’s the power makes the world go’round

[Chorus 2:]
And it don’t take money, don’t take fame
don’t need no credit card to ride this train
It’s strong and it’s sudden it can be cruel sometimes
but it might just save your life

They say that all in love is fair
yeah, but you don’t care
But you know what to do
when it gets hold of you
and with a little help from above
you feel the power of love
you feel the power of love
Can you feel it?
Hmmm

[Chorus 3:]
It don’t take money and it don’t take fame
don’t need no credit card to ride this train
Tougher than diamonds and stronger than steel
you won’t feel nothin’ till you feel
you feel the power, just the power of love
That’s the power, that’s the power of love
You feel the power of love
you feel the power of love
feel the power of love

Crosby Stills Nash and Young

Teach Your Children

You who are on the road
must have a code that you can live by
and so become yourself
because the past is just a goodbye
Teach your children well
their father’s hell
will slowly go by
and feed them on your dreams
the one they picks
the one you’ll know by.
Don’t you ever ask them why
if they told you, you would cry
so just look at them and sigh
and know they love you.
And you, of tender years
can’t know the fears
that your elders grew by
and so please help them with your youth
they seek the truth
before they can die.
(Can you hear and do you care
and can’t you see we must be free
to teach our children what you believe in
make a world that we can believe in)
Teach your parents well
their children’s hell
will slowly go by
and feed them on your dreams
the one they picks
the one you’ll know by.
Don’t you ever ask them why
if they told you, you would cry
so just look at them and sigh
and know they love you.

Song of the Day: Get Up! by KoRn

Korn,_2013

Get Up! by KoRn

I am clearly broken and no one knows what to do
Pieces of the puzzle don’t fit so I pound them into you
Itching is the pulse inside creeping out to come alive
It’s just doing what it’s gonna do

Times are looking grim these days
Holding on to everything
It’s hard to draw the line

Shut the fuck up, get up
Shut the fuck up, get up
Shut the fuck up, get up

I can’t wait to rip my eyes out and look at you
Peace through pain is precious ‘specially when it’s done by you
Itching is a pulse inside creeping out to come alive
It’s just doing what it’s gonna do

Times are looking grim these days holding on to everything
It’s hard to draw the line
And I, I’m hiding in this empty space
Tortured by my memories of what I left behind

Shut the fuck up, get up
Shut the fuck up, get up
Shut the fuck up, get up

Times are looking grim these days holding on to everything
It’s hard to draw the line
And I, I’m hiding in this empty space
Tortured by my memories of what I left behind

Shut the fuck up, get up
Shut the fuck up, get up
Shut the fuck up, get up

Song of the Day: Schism by Tool

Tool

Schism

I know the pieces fit
‘Cause I watched them fall away
Mildewed and smouldering
Fundamental differing
Pure intention juxtaposed
Will set two lovers’ souls in motion
Disintegrating as it goes
Testing our communication
The light that feuled our fire then
Has a burned a hole between us so
We cannot see to reach an end
Crippling our communication

I know the pieces fit
‘Cause I watched them tumble down
No fault, none to blame
It doesn’t mean I don’t desire to
Point the finger, blame the other
Watch the temple topple over
To bring the pieces back together
Rediscover communication

The poetry
That comes from the squaring off between
And the circling is worth it
Finding beauty in the dissonance

There was a time that the pieces fit
But I watched them fall away
Mildewed and smouldering
Strangled by our coveting
I’ve done the math enough to know
The dangers of our second guessing
Doomed to crumble unless we grow
And strengthen our communication

Cold silence has
A tendency to
Atrophy any
Sense of compassion
Between supposed brothers
Between supposed lovers
(sometimes says “lovers” the first
time and then “brothers” in concert)

I know the pieces fit
I know the pieces fit
I know the pieces fit
I know the pieces fit
I know the pieces fit
I know the pieces fit
I know the pieces fit
I know the pieces fit (crescendo)

Song of the Day: All Around Me by Flyleaf

All Around Me

My hands are searching for you
My arms are outstretched towards you
I feel you on my fingertips
My tongue dances behind my lips for you

This fire rising through my being
Burning, I’m not used to seeing you

I’m alive
I’m alive

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling
Savoring this heart that’s healing

My hands float up above me
And you whisper you love me
And I begin to fade
Into our secret place

The music makes me sway
The angels singing say we are alone with you
I am alone and they are too with you

I’m alive
I’m alive

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling
Savoring this heart that’s healing

And so I cry
The light is white
And I see you

I’m alive
I’m alive
I’m alive

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling
Savoring this heart that’s healing

Take my hand, I give it to you
Now you owe me, all I am
You said you would never leave me
I believe you, I believe

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling
Savoring this heart that’s healed

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: Hello Its Me by Tod Rundgren

Todd Rundgren

Hello It’s Me
Hello, it’s me
I’ve thought about us for a long, long time
Maybe I think too much, but something’s wrong
There’s something here doesn’t last too long
Maybe I shouldn’t think of you as mine

Seeing you
Or seeing anything as much as I do you
I take for granted that you’re always there
I take for granted that you just don’t care
Sometimes I can’t help seeing all the way through

[(It’s important to meThat you know you are free)]
‘Cause I never want to make you change for me

Think of me
You know that I’d be with you if I could
I’ll come around to see you once in a while
Or if I ever need a reason to smile
And spend the night if you think I should

[(It’s important to me That you know you are free)]
‘Cause I never want to make you change for me

Think of me
You, you know that I’d be with you if I could
I’ll come around to see you once in a while
Or if I ever need a reason to smile
And spend the night if you think I should

Think of me
Think of me
Think of me
Think of me
Think of me
Think of me
Think of me
Think of me
Think of me
Think of me
Think of me
Think of me
Think of me

You Got Lucky

You better watch what you say
You better watch what you do to me
Dont get carried away
Girl, if you can do better than me
Go…yeah, go
But remember

Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babe
You got lucky, babe
When I found you

You put a hand on my cheek
And then you turn your eyes away
If you dont feel complete
If I dont take you all of the way
Then go, yeah, go,
But remember

Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babe
You got lucky, babe
When I found you

Yeah go,
Just, go,
But remember
Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babe
You got lucky, babe
When I found you

Song of the Day: Demons by Imagine Dragons

Imagine-Dragons-Demons

Demons

When the days are cold
And the cards all fold
And the saints we see
Are all made of gold

When your dreams all fail
And the ones we hail
Are the worst of all
And the blood’s run stale

I wanna hide the truth
I wanna shelter you
But with the beast inside
There’s nowhere we can hide

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

At the curtain’s call
It’s the last of all
When the lights fade out
All the sinners crawl

So they dug your grave
And the masquerade
Will come calling out
At the mess you made

Don’t wanna let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don’t wanna hide the truth

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

They say it’s what you make
I say it’s up to fate
It’s woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can’t escape this now
Unless you show me how

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

Song of the Day: Remedy by Seether

seether2

Remedy

Throw your dollar bills and leave your thrills all here with me
And speak but don’t pretend I won’t defend you anymore you see
It aches in every bone, I’ll die alone, but not for you
My eyes don’t need to see that ugly thing, I know it’s me you fear
If you want me hold me back

Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
And so we go back to the remedy
Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
And tell yourself, “You’ll be the death of me”

I don’t need a friend, I need to mend so far away
So come sit by the fire and play a while, but you can’t stay too long
It aches in every bone, I’ll die alone, but not for pleasure
I see my heart explode, it’s been eroded by the weather here
If you want me hold me back

Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
And so we go back to the remedy
Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
And tell yourself, “You’ll be the death of me”
Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
And so we go back to the remedy
Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
And tell yourself, “You’ll be the death of me”

Hold your eyes closed, take me in
Hold your eyes closed, take me in

Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
And so we go back to the remedy
Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
And tell yourself, “You’ll be the death of me”
Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
And so we go back to the remedy
Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
And tell yourself, “You’ll be the death of me”
