    Amber called her uncle, said, “Were up here for the holiday.
    Jane and I were having solstice, now we need a place to stay.”
    And her Christ-loving uncle watched his wife hang Mary on a tree,
    He watched his song hang candy canes all made with red dye number three.
    He told his niece, “Its Christmas eve, I know our life is not your style.”
    She said, “Christmas is like solstice, and we miss you and its been awhile.”

    So the Christians and the pagans sat together at the table,
    Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able,
    And just before the meal was served, hands were held and prayers were said,
    Sending hope for peace on earth to all their gods and goddesses.

    The food was great, the tree plugged in, the meal had gone without a hitch,
    ‘Til Timmy turned to Amber and said, “Is it true that you’re a wtich?“
    His mom jumped up and said, “The pies are burning,” and she hit the kitchen,
    And it was Jane who spoke, she said, “It’s true, your cousin’s not a Christian.
    But we love trees, we love the snow, the friends we have, the world we share,
    And you find magic from your god, and we find magic everywhere.”

    So the Christians and the pagans sat together at the table,
    Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able,
    And where does magic come from? I think magic’s in the learning,
    ‘Cause now when Christians sit with pagans only pumpkin pies are burning.

    When amber tried to do the dishes, her aunt said, “Really, no, don’t bother.”
    Ambers uncle saw how amber looked like Tim and like her father.
    He thought about his brother, how they hadn’t spoken in a year.
    He thought he’d call him up and say, “Its Christmas and your daughter’s here.”
    He thought of fathers, sons and brothers, saw his own son tug his sleeve, saying,
    “Can I be a pagan?” Dad said, “we’ll discuss it when they leave.”

    So the Christians and the pagans sat together at the table,
    Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able,
    Lighting trees in darkness, learning new ways from the old, and
    Making sense of history and drawing warmth out of the cold

    I don't wanna be broken,
    I wanna be laughing on a Saturady night,
    Surrounded by strangers who dan't have a clue
    That I'm struggling to find the light.

    I don't wanna be open,
    I wanna be a photograph underexposed,
    Impossible to figure out who I am,
    Cos right now I wonder if the world will ever know.

    And since you've been gone,
    I'm a puzzle without pieces,
    I'm a bird that cannot fly,

    I don't know why
    Love has to be so flawed.
    Will I ever get exactly what I want?
    And I don't care why
    The only way to win is to risk it all,
    And not be afraid to fall.

    Why do we have to be so flawed?

    I've got treasures in my head,
    Dreams like diamonds
    All wrapped in gold
    And will anybody ever know?

    I don't know why
    Love has to be so flawed.
    Will I ever get exactly what I want?
    And I don't care why
    The only way to win is to risk it all,
    Not be afraid to fall.

    Why do we have to be so flawed.
    Life is an imperfection
    Trying to bring me down
    Cant be afraid,
    Only my dreams can save me now
    I don't know why
    Love has to be so flawed.
    Yes it is, will I ever get exactly what I want?
    And I don't care why
    The only way to win is to risk it all
    And not be afraid to fall
    Why do we have to be so flawed?

    My favourite song right now! So beautiful...

    It's another tequila sunrise
    Starin' slowly 'cross the sky, said goodbye
    He was just a hired hand
    Workin' on the dreams he planned to try
    The days go by

    If you want to call me "Baby,"
    Just go ahead now,
    And if you like to tell me "Maybe,"
    Just go ahead now,
    And if you want to buy me flowers,
    Just go ahead now,
    And if you like to talk for hours,
    Just go ahead now.

    You may be right:
    I may be crazy,
    But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for
    Turn out the lights,
    Don't try to save me
    You may be wrong, for all I know,
    But you may be right

    Remember how I found you there
    Alone in your electric chair?
    I told you dirty jokes until you smiled
    You were lonely for a man
    I said "Take me as I am,
    'Cause you might enjoy some madness for a while."

    Hey girl! I want you to know,
    I'm gonna miss you so much if you go
    And hey girl! I tell you no lie,
    Something deep inside of me's going to die
    If you say so long,
    If this is good-bye

    Oh! Hey girl! This can't be true
    How am I supposed to exist without you
    And, hey girl! Now don't put me on,
    What's gonna happen to me when you're gone
    How will I live
    How can I go on
    How can I go on
    Hey girl!

    Oh! Hey girl! Now sit yourself down,
    I'm not ashamed to get down on the ground
    And Then beg you to stay
    Don't go away
    Hey girl!
    Don't go away
    Hey girl!
    Don't go away

    Ducks don't need satellites
    Ducks don't need satellites
    They most likely think the sky ends blue.
    Ducks don't need satellites
    They don't need a piece of metal to tell them the weather today.
    They're just happy to keep on swimmin'

    Ducks don't need telephones
    They don't need answering machines
    To know it's their decision and someone cares.
    Ducks don't need telephones to say hello
    And "quack" and "quack quack" back

    ...
    In a random mood today. But that really is a song, I was listening to it on the way to work this morning. Not sure that that's the exact words, but it's pretty close.

    Wise man say,
    "Only fools rush in,"
    But I can't help
    Falling in love with you

    Shall I stay?
    Would it be a sin
    If I can't help
    Falling in love with you?

    Like a river flows
    Surely to the sea,
    Darling, so it goes,
    Some things are meant to be

    So take my hand -
    Take my whole life, too -
    For I can't help
    Falling in love with you

    Wake up kids
    We've got the dreamers disease
    Age 14 we got you down on your knees
    So polite, you're busy still saying please
    Fri - enemies, who when you're down ain't your friend
    Every night we smash their Mercedes - Benz
    First we run and then we laugh till we cry
    But when the night is falling
    And you cannot find the light
    If you feel your dream is dying
    Hold tight
    You've got the music in you
    Don't let go
    You've got the music in you
    One dance left
    This world is gonna pull through
    Don't give up
    You've got a reason to live
    Can't forget you only get what you give
    Four a. m. we ran a miracle mile
    Were flat broke but hey we do it in style
    The bad rich
    God's flying in for your trial

    This whole damn world can fall apart
    You'll be ok follow your heart
    You're in harms way
    I'm right behind
    Now say youre mine

    Fly high
    What's real can't die
    You only get what you give
    Just dont be afraid to leave
    Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
    Fake computer crashes dining
    Cloning while they're multiplying
    Fashion mag shoots
    With the aid of 8 dust brothers Beck, Hanson
    Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson
    You're all fakes
    Run to your mansions
    Come around
    We'll kick your knat in!
    Don't let go
    One dance left

    Have been on and off of a Billy trend for the past few days . . .

    Good night my angel, time to close you eyes
    And save these questions for another day
    I think I know what you've been asking me
    I think you know what I've been trying to say

    I promised I would never leave you,
    And you should always know:
    Wherever you may go,
    No matter where you are,
    I never will be far away

    Good night my angel, now it's time to sleep,
    And still so many things I want to say
    Remember all the songs you sang for me
    When we went sailing on an emerald bay

    And like a boat out on the ocean,
    I'm rocking you to sleep
    The water's dark and deep
    Inside this ancient heart
    You'll always be a part of me


    Goodnight my angel, now it's time to dream,
    And dream how wondeful your life will be
    Someday your child will cry, and if you sing this lullaby,
    Then in your heart there will always be a part of me

    Someday we'll all be gone,
    But lullabies go on and on
    They never die, that's how you and I will be

    I hear that Ian McEwan has composed an operetta and it was awful. Please stick to writing Ian.

    As chairman of the SPO ( Society for the Prevention of Opera) i am aghast at the misplaced use of talent.

    And I heard, as it were, the noise of thunder: One of the four beasts saying: "Come and see." And I saw. And behold, a white horse.
    There's a man goin' 'round takin' names. An' he decides who to free and who to blame. Everybody won't be treated all the same. There'll be a golden ladder reaching down. When the man comes around.

    The hairs on your arm will stand up. At the terror in each sip and in each sup. For you partake of that last offered cup, Or disappear into the potter's ground. When the man comes around.

    Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers. One hundred million angels singin'. Multitudes are marching to the big kettle drum. Voices callin', voices cryin'. Some are born an' some are dyin'. It's Alpha's and Omega's Kingdom come.

    And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree. The virgins are all trimming their wicks. The whirlwind is in the thorn tree. It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

    Till Armageddon, no Shalam, no Shalom. Then the father hen will call his chickens home. The wise men will bow down before the throne. And at his feet they'll cast their golden crown. When the man comes around.

    Whoever is unjust, let him be unjust still. Whoever is righteous, let him be righteous still. Whoever is filthy, let him be filthy still. Listen to the words long written down, When the man comes around.

    Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers. One hundred million angels singin'. Multitudes are marchin' to the big kettle drum. Voices callin', voices cryin'. Some are born an' some are dyin'. It's Alpha's and Omega's Kingdom come.

    And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree. The virgins are all trimming their wicks. The whirlwind is in the thorn tree. It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

    In measured hundredweight and penny pound. When the man comes around.

    And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts, And I looked and behold: a pale horse. And his name, that sat on him, was Death. And Hell followed with him.

    Some folks like to get away,
    Take a holiday from the neighborhood,
    Hop a flight to Miami Beach or Hollywood,
    But I'm taking a Greyhound
    On the Hudson River Line:
    I'm in a New York state of mind.

    I've seen all the movie stars
    In their fancy cars and their limousines,
    Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens
    I know what I'm needing,
    And I don't wanna waste more time:
    I'm in a New York state of mind.

    Have a little love on a little honeymoon
    You got a little dish and you got a little spoon
    A little bitty house and a little bitty yard
    Little bitty dog and a little bitty car

    Well, its alright to be little bitty
    Little hometown or a big old city
    Might as well share, might as well smile
    Life goes on for a little bitty while

    A little bitty baby in a little bitty gown
    Itll grow up in a little bitty town
    Big yellow bus and little bitty books
    It all started with a little bitty look

    Touch of Paradise - Ross Wilson - Sung by John Farnham

    Flamingos walk, and sway in peace
    Seeing this, it makes my troubles cease
    The sun is hiding, leaving a pink scar
    That stretches right across the sky
    Thats all weve seen so far
    And all I do is look into your eyes

    For that special touch of paradise
    Just a touch, a touch of paradise
    Just a special touch of paradise

    You hold my hand, thats when we kiss
    And it doesnt take long no, until I get the gist
    Of this love that stretches out across the land
    Where rainbows flash, as were walking in the sand
    And all I do is look into your eyes

    A touch of spring, and autumn sweet
    Well the trees vibrate when our eyes meet
    And I think of all the love that we have been making
    You touch my hand and I walk off shaking
    And all I do is look into your eyes
