Breathe - Hands To Heaven

The Best of My Record Collection
As I watch you move
Across the moonlit room
There's so much tenderness in your loving
Tomorrow I must leave
The dawn knows no reprieve
God, give me strength when I am leaving

So raise your hands to heaven and pray
That we'll be back together someday

Tonight I need your sweet caress
Hold me in the darkness
Tonight you calm my restlessness
You relieve my sadness

As we move to embrace tears run down your face
I whisper words of love so softly
I can't believe this pain
It's driving me insane
Without your touch life will be lonely

So raise your hands to heaven and pray
That we'll be back together someday

Tonight I need your sweet caress
Hold me in the darkness
Tonight you calm my restlessness
You relieve my sadness
Tonight I need your sweet caress
Hold me in the darkness
Tonight you calm my restlessness
You relieve my sadness

Morning has come another day
I must pack my bags and say goodbye, goodbye...

Tonight I need your sweet caress
Hold me in the darkness
Tonight you calm my restlessness
You relieve my sadness
Tonight I need your sweet caress
Hold me in the darkness
Tonight you calm my restlessness
You relieve my sadness... 

Johnny Tillotson - Poetry In Motion

The Best of My Record Collection
When I see my baby what do I see
Poetry poetry in motion

Poetry in motion walking by my side
Her lovely locomotion keeps my eyes open wide
Poetry in motion see her gentle sway
All waves out ON the ocean could never move that way

I love every movement there's nothing I would change
She doesn't need improvement she's much too nice to rearrange
Poetry in motion dancing close to me
A flower of devotion a swaying gracefuly
[ sax ]
Poetry in motion see her gentle sway
All waves out ON the ocean could never move that way

I love every movement there's nothing I would change
She doesn't need improvement she's much too nice to rearrange
Poetry in motion all that I adore
No number nine love potion could make me love her more

Florence + The Machine - Cosmic Love

The Best of My Record Collection
A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it's left me blind

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness,
So darkness I became

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

I took the stars from my eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

The Beach Boys - Dance Dance Dance

After six hours of school I've had enough for the day

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama

The Best of My Record Collection
One ... two ... three ...

Turn it up

Big wheels keep on turnin'
Carryin' me home to see my kin
Singin' songs about the southland
I miss Alabamy once again and I think its a sin ... yes

Well I heard Mister Young sing about her
Well I heard ol' Neil put her down
Well I hope Neil Young will remember
A Southern man don't need him around anyhow

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet home Alabama
Lord I'm comin' home to you

In Birmingham they love the governor
Boo, boo, boo
Now we all did what we could do
Now Watergate does not bother me
Does your conscience bother you? ... tell the truth

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet home Alabama ... oh, yes
Lord I'm comin' home to you ... here I come ... Alabama

Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers
And they've been known to pick a song or two
Lord they get me off so much
They pick me up when I'm feelin' blue ... now how about you

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet home Alabama
Lord I'm comin' home to you

Sweet home Alabama
Oh sweet home
Where the skies are so blue ... and the governor's true
Sweet home Alabama
Lorrrdy
Lord I'm coming home to you
Yeah, yeah
My ... Montgomery's got the answer

Cockney Rejects - Join The Rejects

The Best of My Record Collection
Here comes the new punk

Do you remember 1977
Daddy of the gang said
that you'll go to heaven
every word a lie and none the truth
so here's a message for todays youth

Join the Rejects and get yourself killed

I wanna go back to where it all began
I wanna do a gig in my back garden
wanna have a laugh before the press get in
if you give'em half a chance
they'll kill the fucking thing

Green Day - Chump

The Best of My Record Collection
I don't know you
But I think I hate you
You're the reason for my misery
Strange how you've become my biggest enemy
And I've never even seen your face

Well maybe it's just jealousy
Mixed up with a violent mind
A circumstance that doesn't make much sense
Or maybe I'm just dumb

You're the cloud hanging out over my head
Hail comes crashing down welting my face
Magic man, egocentric plastic man
Yet you still got one over on me

Well maybe it's just jealousy
Mixed up with a violent mind
A circumstance that doesn't make much sense
Or maybe I'm just dumb

I'm a chump

Nickelback - Too Bad

The Best of My Record Collection
Fathers hands were lined with dirt
From long days in the field
And mothers hands are serving meals
In a café on Main Street
With mouths to feed
Just trying to keep clothing on our backs
And all I hear about is
And how it's so bad, it's so bad

[Chorus:]
It's too bad, it's stupid
Too late, so wrong, so long
It's too bad that we had no time to rewind
Let's walk, let's talk
Let's talk

You left without saying goodbye
Although I'm sure you tried
You call the house from time to time
To make sure we're alive
But you weren't there
Right when I'm needed you the most
And now I dream about it
And how it's so bad, it's so bad

[Chorus x2]

Father's hands are lined with guilt
For tearing us apart
Guess it turned out in the end
Just look at where we are
We made it out, we still got clothing on our backs
And now I scream about it
And how it's so bad, it's so bad

[Chorus x2]

Long time, let's walk, let's talk

Pearl Jam - Alive

The Best of My Record Collection
"Son," she said, "have I got a little story for you...
What you thought was your daddy was nothin' but a...
While you were sittin' home alone at age thirteen
your real daddy was dyin'. Sorry you didn't see him, but I'm glad we talked..."

Oh I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey...oh...

Oh, she walks slowly, across a young man's room.
She said "I'm ready...for you..."
"I can't remember anything of this very day,
'cept the look, the look...
Oh, you know where, now I can't see, I just stare..."

I, I'm still alive
Hey I, but, I'm still alive
Hey I, boy, I'm still alive
Hey I, I, I, I'm still alive, yeah
Ooh yeah...yeah yeah yeah...oh...oh...

"Is something wrong?" she said
Of course there is
"You're still alive," she said
Oh, and do I deserve to be?
Is that the question?
And if so...if so...who answers...who answers...?

I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey I, but, I'm still alive
Yeah I, ooh, I'm still alive
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
