^^I love those words.


I wanted you to know
That I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph
And I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

You've gone away
You don't feel me here....anymore

The worst is over now
And we can breathe again
I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away
There's so much left to learn
And no one left to fight
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

My candle burns at both ends
It will not last the night
But ah my foes and oh my friends
It gives a lovely light

Chris De Burgh lyrics

"Chris De Burgh Lonesome Cowboy lyrics"

There was a lonesome cowboy, who rode his horse all day,
At night he slept in the moonlight, till he heard that midnight
Train...

And then that lonesome cowboy, looked up at the stars in the sky,
I will leave my land and my horses, on that midnight train I will
Ride,

To the city, far across the plains,
To that city, on that midnight train, here it comes,
Choo choo choo... on that midnight train

And then that lonesome cowboy, stepped into a bar,
A pretty girl slid over nice and easy, boy your money won’t go far.

She took him outside to an alley, he got dragged into a fight,
And a bullet sent him dying, and he cursed that moonless night

In that city, far across the plains,
In that city, he could hear that midnight train, down the line;
Choo choo choo... he could hear that midnight train

And now that lonesome cowboy is lain beneath the clay,
His horses they’re still waiting, for he is gone away;

Now if you think the grass is greener on the far side of the hill
All you cowboys, take it easy, there’s no grass there at all.

In that city, far across the plains,
In that city, you’d better miss that midnight train, here it comes
Choo choo choo... you’d better miss that midnight train
Choo choo choo... that train is coming for you.

On a warm summers evenin on a train bound for nowhere,
I met up with the gambler; we were both too tired to sleep.
So we took turns a starin out the window at the darkness
til boredom overtook us, and he began to speak.

He said, son, Ive made a life out of readin peoples faces,
And knowin what their cards were by the way they held their eyes.
So if you dont mind my sayin, I can see youre out of aces.
For a taste of your whiskey Ill give you some advice.

So I handed him my bottle and he drank down my last swallow.
Then he bummed a cigarette and asked me for a light.
And the night got deathly quiet, and his face lost all expression.
Said, if youre gonna play the game, boy, ya gotta learn to play it right.

You got to know when to hold em, know when to fold em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
You never count your money when youre sittin at the table.
Therell be time enough for countin when the dealins done.

Now evry gambler knows that the secret to survivin
Is knowin what to throw away and knowing what to keep.
cause evry hands a winner and evry hands a loser,
And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep.

So when hed finished speakin, he turned back towards the window,
Crushed out his cigarette and faded off to sleep.
And somewhere in the darkness the gambler, he broke even.
But in his final words I found an ace that I could keep.

You got to know when to hold em, know when to fold em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
You never count your money when youre sittin at the table.
Therell be time enough for countin when the dealins done.

(No it's not, it's "Have a Cigar".) I know you know that. Have you been [outraged]drinking[/outraged] again?


Others will fill our places,
Dressed in the old light blue,
We'll recollect our races,
We'll to the flag be true,
And youth will be still in our faces,
When we cheer for an Eton crew,
And youth will be still in our faces,
When we cheer for an Eton crew.

Twenty years hence this weather,
May tempt us from office stools,
We may be slow on the feather,
And seem to the boys old fools,
But we still swing together,
And swear by the best of schools,
But we still swing together,
And swear by the best of schools.

Boys of Summer

Don Henley

Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I'm drivin' by your house
Though I know you're not at home

But I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream
Now I don't understand what happened to our love
But babe, I'm gonna get you back
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
I see you walkin' real slow and you're smilin' at everyone
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Out on the road today, I saw a DEADHEAD sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice Inside my head said, "Don't look back. You can never look back."
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but-

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got that top pulled down and that radio on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got that hair slicked back and those Wayfarers on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

Slowly, slowly walk the path and you might never stumble or fall.
Slowly, slowly walk the path and you might never fall in love at all.

Golden, golden is her hair. Like the morning sun over fields corn.
Golden, golden flows her love. So sweet and clear and warm.

Lonely, lonely is the heart that never has another it can call its own.
Lonley, lonely lies the heart that has to live all alone.

Golden, golden is her hair. Like the morning sun over fields corn.
Golden, golden flows her love. So sweet and clear and warm.

Wildly, wildy beats the heart, with a rush of love like a mountain stream.
Wildy, wildly play your heart as free as a wild bird's dream.

Golden, golden is her hair. Like the morning sun over fields corn.
Golden, golden flows her love. So sweet and clear and warm.

Probably traditional

Fields Of Gold
Sting

You'll remember me
when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
as we walk in fields of gold
So she took her love
For to gaze awhile
Upon the fields of Barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold
Will you stay with me will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
We'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we lie in fields of gold
See the west wind move like a lover so
Upon the fields of Barley
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth
Among the fields of gold
I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We'll walk in fields of gold
We'll walk in fields of gold
Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold
Laughing in the rain.
Dancing in the desert sand,
Somersaults through life.

Fair enough. That happened to me one afternoon once.


His two big ears are all pink,
Two letters on his front imply
That this is the super hyper super mouse.

Dangermouse, aerodynamic mouse
Dangermouse, a dynamite mouse
Dangermouse, a mouse for the atomic age
He's the greatest of all mice.

In the space hopper, with his friend Panikar (=Penfold)
He protects the universe from Greenback
Who wants to conquer the world.
His adventures are a challenge. Lived in danger of his life,
But that's the super hyper super mouse

Earth will be the prize
We'll all lose our spots, Ohhh

Poisonous Lookalike
Warren Zevon

I was getting used to you
You went and changed your tune
Now you've got me so confused
I can't tell the salt from the wound

Didn't they always used to say
A man ain't supposed to cry
I defy you to look me in the eye
And tell me you're a friend of mine

Poisonous lookalike
You're not my girl
Poisonous lookalike
What have you done with her?
Poisonous lookalike
You're not my girl
Poisonous lookalike
What have you done with her?

Now it seems to me you're acting strange
You treat me like a criminal
You keep telling me
I'll have to change
Baby, that would take a miracle

Didn't they always used to say
A man ain't supposed to cry
I defy you to look me in the eye
And tell me you're a friend of mine

Poisonous lookalike
You're not my girl
Poisonous lookalike
What have you done with her?
Poisonous lookalike
You're not my girl
Poisonous lookalike
What have you done with her?

Poisonous lookalike
Little Miss Gun-to-a-Knife fight
Poisonous lookalike
What're you trying to do?
Poisonous lookalike
Do you feel all right all right?
Poisonous lookalike
What's wrong with you?

Poisonous lookalike
You're not my girl
Poisonous lookalike
What have you done with her?
Poisonous lookalike
You're not my girl
Poisonous lookalike
What have you done with her?

I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused.
Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used.
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise.
If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this
maze?

Deaf, dumb, and blind, you just keep on pretending
That everyone's expendable and no-one has a real friend.
And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner
And everything's done under the sun,
And you believe at heart, everyone's a killer.

Who was born in a house full of pain.
Who was trained not to spit in the fan.
Who was told what to do by the man.
Who was broken by trained personnel.
Who was fitted with collar and chain.
Who was given a pat on the back.
Who was breaking away from the pack.
Who was only a stranger at home.
Who was ground down in the end.
Who was found dead on the phone.
Who was dragged down by the stone.

(You mean you don't know them all? You're cheating....? )

I want to live,
I want to give
I've been a miner
for a heart of gold.
It's these expressions
I never give
That keep me searching
for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.
Keeps me searching
for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.

I've been to Hollywood
I've been to Redwood
I crossed the ocean
for a heart of gold
I've been in my mind,
it's such a fine line
That keeps me searching
for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.
Keeps me searching
for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.

(Likewise, I'm running out of songs now. Will have to start recycling).

Hey babe, what's in your eyes?
I saw them flashing like airplane lights
You fill my cup, babe, that's for sure
I must come back for a little more

You got my heart you got my soul
You got the silver you got the gold
You got the diamonds from the mine
Well that's all right, it'll buy some time

In this hole
That is me
The dead are rolling over
In this hole
Thickening
Dirt shoveled over shoulders

I feel it in me
So overwhelmed
Oh, this pressured center rising
My life overturned
Unfair the despair
All these scars keep ripping open

Peel me from the skin
Tear me from the rind
Does it make you happy now?

Tear meat from the bone
Tear me from myself
Are you feeling happy now?

So, I thought this cannot be
There's someone else in here with me
I don't care where we have been
You never will believe it
I know you and you know me
And we're as happy as we can be
I know where this world belongs
It don't mean much to me
Just like the ocean or the sea
Just like the blood that burns in me
Someone like you cannot be free
Just like a lock without a key
