“Vienna” by Billy Joel

Slow down you crazy child

You’re so ambitious for a juvenile

But then if you’re so smart tell me,

Why are you still so afraid? (mmmmm)

Where’s the fire, what’s the hurry about?

You better cool it off before you burn it out

You got so much to do and only

So many hours in a day (Ay)

But you know that when the truth is told

That you can get what you want

Or you can just get old

You’re gonna kick off before you even get halfway through (Oooh)

When will you realize… Vienna waits for you?

Slow down you’re doing fine

You can’t be everything you want to be before your time

Although it’s so romantic on the borderline tonight (tonight)

Too bad, but it’s the life you lead

You’re so ahead of yourself that you forgot what you need

Though you can see when you’re wrong

You know you can’t always see when you’re right (you’re right)

You got your passion, you got your pride

But don’t you know that only fools are satisfied?

Dream on, but don’t imagine they’ll all come true (Oooh)

When will you realize… Vienna waits for you?

Slow down you crazy child

Take the phone off the hook and disappear for a while

It’s alright, you can afford to lose a day or two (oooh)

When will you realize… Vienna waits for you?

And you know that when the truth is told

That you can get what you want or you can just get old

You’re gonna kick off before you even get halfway through (oooh)

Why don’t you realize… Vienna waits for you?

When will you realize… Vienna waits for you?

Under The Bridge

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Under The Bridge (Lyrics)

“Under The Bridge”

Sometimes I feel
Like I don’t have a partner
Sometimes I feel
Like my only friend
Is the city I live in
The city of angels
Lonely as I am
Together we cry

I drive on her streets
‘Cause she’s my companion
I walk through her hills
‘Cause she knows who I am
She sees my good deeds
And she kisses me windy
I never worry
Now that is a lie

I don’t ever want to feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way

It’s hard to believe
That there’s nobody out there
It’s hard to believe
That I’m all alone
At least I have her love
The city she loves me
Lonely as I am
Together we cry

I don’t ever want to feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all that way

Under the bridge downtown
Is where I drew some blood
Under the bridge downtown
I could not get enough
Under the bridge downtown
Forgot about my love
Under the bridge downtown
I gave my life away

 

Bridge

Why – Live

“Why” by Annie Lennox

How many times do I have to try to tell you

That I’m sorry for the things I’ve done

But when I start to try to tell you

That’s when you have to tell me

Hey… this kind of trouble’s only just begun

I tell myself too many times

Why don’t you ever learn to keep your big mouth shut

That’s why it hurts so bad to hear the words

That keep on falling from your mouth

Falling from your mouth

Falling from your mouth

Tell me…

Why

Why

I may be mad

I may be blind

I may be viciously unkind

But I can still read what you’re thinking

And I’ve heard is said too many times

That you’d be better off

Besides…

Why can’t you see this boat is sinking

(this boat is sinking this boat is sinking)

Let’s go down to the water’s edge

And we can cast away those doubts

Some things are better left unsaid

But they still turn me inside out

Turning inside out turning inside out

Tell me…

Why

Tell me…

Why

This is the book I never read

These are the words I never said

This is the path I’ll never tread

These are the dreams I’ll dream instead

This is the joy that’s seldom spread

These are the tears…

The tears we shed

This is the fear

This is the dread

These are the contents of my head

And these are the years that we have spent

And this is what they represent

And this is how I feel

Do you know how I feel ?

’cause i don’t think you know how I feel

I don’t think you know what I feel

I don’t think you know what I feel

You don’t know what I feel

Wonder

“Wonder” by Natalie Merchant

Doctors have come from distant cities

Just to see me

Stand over my bed

Disbelieving what they’re seeing

They say I must be one of the wonders

Of god’s own creation

And as far as they can see they can offer

No explanation

Newspapers ask intimate questions

Want confessions

They reach into my head

To steal the glory of my story

They say I must be one of the wonders

Of god’s own creation

And as far as they can see they can offer

No explanation

O, I believe

Fate smiled and destiny

Laughed as she came to my cradle

Know this child will be able

Laughed as my body she lifted

Know this child will be gifted

With love, with patience and with faith

She’ll make her way

People see me

I’m a challenge to your balance

I’m over your heads

How I confound you and astound you

To know I must be one of the wonders

Of god’s own creation

And as far as you can see you can offer me

No explanation

O, I believe

Fate smiled and destiny

Laughed as she came to my cradle

Know this child will be able

Laughed as she came to my mother

Know this child will not suffer

Laughed as my body she lifted

Know this child will be gifted

With love, with patience and with faith

She’ll make her way

Paint It Black

“Paint It Black” by The Rolling Stones

I see a red door and I want it painted black

No colors anymore I want them to turn black

I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes

I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they’re all painted black

With flowers and my love both never to come back

I see people turn their heads and quickly look away

Like a new born baby it just happens ev’ry day

I look inside myself and see my heart is black

I see my red door and it has been painted black

Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the facts

It’s not easy facin’ up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue

I could not foresee this thing happening to you

If I look hard enough into the settin sun

My love will laugh with me before the mornin comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black

No colors anymore I want them to turn black

I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes

I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

Hmm, hmm, hmm,…

I wanna see it painted, painted black

Black as night, black as coal

I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky

I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black

Yeah!
