'Two Young Lovers' - Dire Straits


It was the last day of summer
It was the first of a new romance
He walked into her on the corner
She said, 'i don't dance'

He said, 'baby let me teach you'
She said, 'o.k., when? '
He said, 'how can I reach you baby
I'd really like to see you again'

He picked her up on a friday night
He took her for a bite to eat
His heart was beating and his hands were shaking
She thought he was sweet

And he stood on her shoes on the dance floor
Well, they were doing it cheek to cheek
And he walked her home and he kissed her
He was walking on air all week

Well, they couldn't stand to be apart
They couldn't leave one another alone
Her mama used to say, 'it's getting late sweetheart
It's time that boy went home'

And upstairs papa kissed mama
And she gave him a sweet caress
He said, 'here's to the two young lovers
Let's wish 'em every happiness'

It was the last day of summer
They came walking home hand in hand
They went and told her mama
They showed her the wedding band

Mama cried and poured the wine
Papa just said God bless
Now, here's to the two young lovers
Let's wish 'em every happiness

The Sound Of Silence



Emiliana Torrini, 1996



Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

"Fools", said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls"
And whispered in the sounds of silence

'Need You Tonight' - INXS


All you got is this moment
Ttwenty-first century's yesterday
You can care all you want
Everybody does yeah that's okay

So slide over here
And give me a moment
Your moves are so raw
I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know
You're one of my kind

I need you tonight
'Cause I'm not sleeping
There's something about you girl
That makes me sweat

How do you feel
I'm lonely
What do you think
Can't take it all
Whatcha gonna do
Gonna live my life

Black Hole Sun



Peter Frampton, 2009



In my eyes, Indisposed,
In disguise As no one knows.
Hides the face, Lies the snake,
And the sun In my disgrace.
Boiling heat, Summer stench.
'Neath the black The sky looks dead.
Call my name Through the cream,
And I'll hear you Scream again.

Black hole sun, Won't you come
And wash away the rain? Black hole sun,
Won't you come? Won't you come?
Won't you come?

Stuttering, Cold and damp,
Steal the warm wind Tired friend.
Times are gone For honest men
And sometimes, Far too long
For snakes.

In my shoes, A walking sleep,
And my youth I pray to keep.
Heaven send Hell away, No one
Sings like you anymore.

Brothers In Arms



Alex Cornish, 2010




These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Someday you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn to be
Brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptisms of fire
I've witnessed your suffering
As the battle raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell and
The moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line in your palm
We are fools to make war
On our brothers in arms
