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.
 
"What gives a girl power and punch?
Is it charm?
Is it poise?
No, it's HAAAIIIRRRSPRAAAAAYY! "

Lol, I'm part of a small group (four) performing that song in a couple of months it's such a fun song!

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
