Moondog Jr. - TV Song


Album: Everyday I Wear A Greasy Black feather On My Hat
Track nr: 8
Duration: 4:23
Year: 1995
Genre: Indie











Don't lay it on me, on me
Don't you leave me here
I like to sit and cry
In front of my TV
I like to think of words to scream
About all it is I am
And all it is I wanna be
Over and over I laugh and cry
But the movie it ain't as real
As I want it to be
I like to sit and cry over and over again
And the tears they please me
They are all I need to know
And a man on a bike comes on
He says:
'Hey my wheels don't turn
If the road don't feel right'
I say: 'I'll just stand still and wait
For the skies to burn at night'
So I can bury you
It's all I can do
So you won't come through
At least for a little while
My life will be alright
I like to sit and watch it all I can
Crying like a man
And leave it for another day
I'll stay here in my precious cage
And lose it while I can
Cut if off by minute roots
And stick it in the ground
And bury you, it's all I can do
So you won't come through
At least for a little while
My life will be alright
You see I been waiting
Here in doubt
But I don't fear your lightshows
And I don't fear your eyes
Not anymore
Everytime we score
I like to sit and cry
And on that score
I think I'll cry a little more
I think I'll keep the TV on
I think I'll cry for all night long
I'm sure that it won't do me no good
No, but it will
Shake you off of me momma
And cut you loose from me girl
It means the world to bury you
It's all I can do
So you won't come through
At least for a little while
My life will be alright

Radiohead - No Surprises

Album: OK Computer
Track nr: 10
Duration: 3:49
Year: 1997
Genre: Experimental Rock








A heart that's full up like a landfill,
a job that slowly kills you,
bruises that won't heal.
You look so tired-unhappy,
bring down the government,
they don't, they don't speak for us.
I'll take a quiet life,
a handshake of carbon monoxide,

with no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
Silent silent.

This is my final fit,
my final bellyache,

with no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises please.

Such a pretty house
and such a pretty garden.

No alarms and no surprises (get me outta here),
no alarms and no surprises (get me outta here),
no alarms and no surprises, please.

The Nightmare Before Christmas - Jack's Lament



There are few who'd deny, at what I do I am the best
For my talents are renowned far and wide
When it comes to surprises in the moonlit night
I excel without ever even trying
With the slightest little effort of my ghostlike charms
I have seen grown men give out a shriek
With the wave of my hand, and a well-placed moan
I have swept the very bravest off their feet

Yet year after year, it's the same routine
And I grow so weary of the sound of screams
And I, Jack, the Pumpkin King
Have grown so tired of the same old thing

Oh, somewhere deep inside of these bones
An emptiness began to grow
There's something out there, far from my home
A longing that I've never known

I'm a master of fright, and a demon of light
And I'll scare you right out of your pants
To a guy in Kentucky, I'm Mister Unlucky
And I'm known throughout England and France

And since I am dead, I can take off my head
To recite Shakespearean quotations
No animal nor man can scream like I can
With the fury of my recitations

But who here would ever understand
That the Pumpkin King with the skeleton grin
Would tire of his crown, if they only understood
He'd give it all up if he only could

Oh, there's an empty place in my bones
That calls out for something unknown
The fame and praise come year after year
Does nothing for these empty tears

Radiohead - 2+2=5

Album: Hail To The Thief
Track nr: 1
Duration: 3:19
Year: 200
Genre: Experimental Rock





Are you such a dreamer?
To put the world to rights?
I'll stay home forever
Where two & two always
makes up five

I'll lay down the tracks
Sandbag & hide
January has April's showers
And two & two always
makes up five

It's the devil's way now
There is no way out
You can scream & you
can shout
It is too late now
Because

You have not been
paying attention

I try to sing along
I get it all wrong
Ezeepeezeeeezeepeeezee
NOT
I swat em like flies but
Like flies the burgers
Keep coming back
NOT
Maybe not
"All hail to the thief"
"But I am not!"
"Don't question my authority
or put me in the dock"
Cozimnot!
Go & tell the king that
The sky is falling in
When it's not
Maybe not.

Elvis Presley - If I Can Dream

Album: n/a
Track nr: n/a
Duration: 3:10
Year: 1968
Genre: "The King"



There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true

There must be peace and understanding sometime
Strong winds of promise that will blow away
All the doubt and fear
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun appear

Were lost in a cloud
With too much rain
Were trapped in a world
That's troubled with pain
But as long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly

Deep in my heart there's a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, theres a beckoning candle
And while I can think, while I can walk
While I can stand, while I can talk
While I can dream, please let my dream
Come true, right now
Let it come true right now
Oh yeah

Beatles - Eleanor Rigby

Album: Revolver
Track nr: 2
Duration: 2:07
Year: 1966
Genre: Rock



Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from ?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong ?

Father McKenzie writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear
No one comes near.
Look at him working. Darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there
What does he care?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name
Nobody came
Father McKenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
No one was saved

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

"And Now For Something Completely Different"

When I started this I thought I would pick one song from each artist... But who was I kidding, It would be impossible. Some songs that should be here aren't, and that's because it sometimes feels like I'm committing a crime picking one song over another, so I am doing my best in this initial stage of this very long term project and idea to choose the best I can without repeating the artist, and although all the songs I would like to share with everyone I will never be able to compile them all, I would like to suggest that if you indeed like any of these songs, spend some time listening to some of their other work. It will be worth every second of your time.

As promised on this post's title....

Here we have it, a Monty Python sketch, (yes also hard to choose) but chosen because in the end of it we have the "Lumberjack Song"

Enjoy.


Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven

Album: Led Zeppelin IV
Track nr: 4
Duration: 7:55
Year: 1971
Genre: Rock



There's a lady who's sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook
There's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven
It makes me wonder

There's a feeling I get
When I look to the west
and my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who stand looking
And it makes me wonder

And it's whispered that soon
If we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn
For those who stand long
And the forest will echo with laughter

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow
Don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean for the May queen
Yes there are two paths you can go by
But in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on
And it makes me wonder

Your head is humming and it won't go
In case you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady can you hear the wind blow
And did you know
Your stairway lies on the whisperin' wind

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our souls
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll

And she's buying a stairway to heaven...


Jethro Tull - Aqualung

Album: Aqualung
Track nr: 1
Duration: 6:31
Year: 1971
Genre: Progressive Rock

LIVE PERFORMANCE


Sitting on a park bench
eyeing little girls with bad intent.
Snot running down his nose
greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes.
Drying in the cold sun
Watching as the frilly panties run.
Feeling like a dead duck
spitting out pieces of his broken luck.

Sun streaking cold
an old man wandering lonely.
Taking time
the only way he knows.
Leg hurting bad,
as he bends to pick a dog-end
he goes down to the bog
and warms his feet.

Feeling alone
the army's up the rode
salvation à la mode and
a cup of tea.
Aqualung my friend
don't start away uneasy
you poor old sod, you see, it's only me.
Do you still remember
December's foggy freeze
when the ice that
clings on to your beard is
screaming agony.
And you snatch your rattling last breaths
with deep-sea-diver sounds,
and the flowers bloom like
madness in the spring.

Pulp - Common People

Album: Different Class
Track nr: 3
Duration: 5:50
Year: 1995
Genre: Indie







She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge
She studied sculpture at St Martin's college
That's where I....
Caught her eye

She told me that her Dad was loaded
I said "In that case I'll have rum and coca-cola."
She said "Fine,".....
And then in thirty seconds time she said

"I want to live like common people
I want to do whatever common people do
I want to sleep with common people
I want to sleep with common people like you."

Oh what else could I do?
I said "I'll see what I can do."

I took her to a supermarket
I don't know why, but I had to start it somewhere
So it started .... there
I said "Pretend you've got no money."
But she just laughed an said "Oh you're so funny."
I said "Yeah?
Well I can't see anyone else smiling in here

Are you sure you want to live like common people
You want to see whatever common people see
You want to sleep with common people
You want to sleep with common people like me?"
But she didn't ... understand
She just smiled and held my hand

Rent a flat above a shop
Cut your hair and get a job
Smoke some fags and play some pool
Pretend you never went to school
But still you'll never get it right
`cos when you're laid in bed at night
Watching roaches climb the wall
If you called your dad he could stop it all yeah

You'll never live like common people
You'll never do what ever common people do
You'll never fail like common people
You'll never watch your life slide out of view

And then dance, and drink, and screw
Because there's nothing else to do

Sing along with the common people
Sing along and it might just get you through
Laugh along with the common people
Laugh along even though they're laughing at you
And the stupid things that you do
Because you think that poor is cool.

Like a dog lying in a corner
They will bite you and never warn you
Look out.

They'll tear your insides out

`cos everybody hates a tourist
Especially one who thinks it's all such a laugh
Yeah and the chip stain and grease will come out in the bath

You will never understand
How it feels to live your life
With no meaning or control
And with nowhere left to go
You are amazed that they exist
And they burn so bright whilst you can only wonder why.

Rent a flat above a shop
Cut your hair and get a job
Smoke some fags and play some pool
Pretend you never went to school
But still you'll never get it right
`cos when you're laid in bed at night
Watching .... roaches climb the wall
If you called your Dad he could stop it all, Yeah.

Never live like common people
Never do what common people do
Never fail like common people
Never watch your life .... slide out of view

And then dance, and drink, .... and screw
Because there's nothing else to do

I want to live with common people like you.

Everlast - What's It Like

Album: Whitey Ford Sings The Blues
Track nr: 4
Duration: 5:03
Year: 1998
Genre: Hip-Hop / Rock/Blues



VideoClip


We've all seen a man at the liquor store beggin' for your change
The hair on his face is dirty, dread-locked, and full of mange
He asks a man for what he could spare, with shame in his eyes
Get a job you fucking slob, is all he replies
God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in his shoes
cause then you really might know what its like to sing the blues

Then you really might know what its like...
Then you really might know what its like...
Then you really might know what its like...
Then you really might know what its like...

Mary got pregnant from a kid named tom that said he was in love
He said, don't worry about a thing, baby doll
I'm the man you've been dreaming of.
But 3 months later he say he wont date her or return her calls
And she swear, God damn, if I find that man I'm cuttin' off his balls.
And then she heads for the clinic and
She gets some static walking through the door
They call her a killer, and they call her a sinner
And they call her a whore
God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in her shoes
cause then you really might know what its like to have to choose

Ive seen a rich man beg
Ive seen a good man sin
Ive seen a tough man cry
Ive seen a loser win
And a sad man grin
I heard an honest man lie
Ive seen the good side of bad
And the downside of up
And everything between
I licked the silver spoon
Drank from the golden cup
And smoked the finest green
I stroked the fattest dimes at least a couple of times
Before I broke their heart
You know where it ends, yo, it usually depends on where you start

I knew this kid named max
He used to get fat stacks out on the corner with drugs
He liked to hang out late
He liked to get shit-faced and keep the pace with thugs
Until late one night there was a big gun fight and max lost his head
He pulled out his chrome .45, talked some shit, and wound up dead
Now his wife and his kids are caught in the midst of all of this pain
You know it crumbles that way
At least thats what they say when you play the game
God forbid you ever had to wake up to hear the news
cause then you really might know what its like to have to lose

Then you really might know what its like...
Then you really might know what its like...
Then you really might know what its like...to have to lose

Comment: Remembered this one because of the national referendum about the Abortion Law. It was about time.

Antony And The Johnsons - Hope There's Someone

Album: I Am A Bird Now
Track nr: 1
Duration: 4:21
Year: 2005
Genre: New Weird America / Barroque Pop



Videoclip


Hope there's someone
Who'll take care of me
When I die, will I go

Hope there's someone
Who'll set my heart free
Nice to hold when I'm tired

There's a ghost on the horizon
When I go to bed
How can I fall asleep at night
How will I rest my head

Oh I'm scared of the middle place
Between light and nowhere
I don't want to be the one
Left in there, left in there

There's a man on the horizon
Wish that I'd go to bed
If I fall to his feet tonight
Will allow rest my head

So here's hoping I will not drown
Or paralyze in light
And godsend I don't want to go
To the seal's watershed

Hope there's someone
Who'll take care of me
When I die, Will I go

Hope there's someone
Who'll set my heart free
Nice to hold when I'm tired


Quotes:
Laurie Anderson- "When he sings it is the most exquisite thing you will ever hear in your life."
Diamanda Galas- "Every emotion in the planet is in that gorgeous voice."

Blind Melon - No Rain

Album: Blind Melon
Track nr: 7
Duration: 4:07
Year: 1992
Genre: Alternative Rock






All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
I like watchin' the puddles gather rain
And all I can do is just pour some tea for two
and speak my point of view
But it's not sane, It's not sane

I just want some one to say to me, oh oh oh oh
I'll always be there when you wake
You know I'd like to keep my tears dry today
So stay with me and I'll have it made

And I don't understand why I sleep all day
And I start to complain that there's no rain
And all I can do is read a book to stay awake
And it rips my life away, but it's a great escape
escape......escape......escape......

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
you don't like my point of view
you think I'm insane
Its not sane......it's not sane.

I just want some one to say to me, oh oh oh oh
I'll always be there when you wake
You know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today
So stay with me and I'll have it made
and I'll have it made, and I'll have it made, and I'll have it made.....


Comment: Richard Shannon Hoon died in 1995 due to an accidental cocaine overdose.
His grave is inscribed with the words to the first song he wrote:
Change
: "I know we can't all stay here forever / So I want to write my words on the face of today / And they'll paint it".
As of 2006, the band reformed with a new lead vocalist, Travis Warren.

Neil Young - Crime In The City


Album: Freedom
Track nr: 2
Duration: 8:45
Year: 1989
Genre: Rock




Well, the cop made the showdown
He was sure he was right
He had all of the lowdown
From the bank heist last night
His best friend was the robber
And his wife was a thief
All the children were killers
They couldn't get no relief
The bungalow was surrounded
When a voice loud and clear
Said, Come on out with your hands up
Or we'll blow you out of here.
There was a face in the window
The TV cameras rolled
Then they cut to the announcer
And the story was told.

The artist looked at the producer
The producer sat back
He said, What we have got here
Is a perfect track
But we don't have a vocal
And we don't have a song
If we could get these things accomplished
Nothin' else could go wrong.
So he balanced the ashtray
As he picked up the phone
And said, Send me a songwriter
Who's drifted far from home
And make sure that he's hungry
Make sure he's alone
Send me a cheeseburger
And a new Rolling Stone.

There's still crime in the city,
Said the cop on the beat,
I don't know if I can stop it
I feel like meat on the street
They paint my car like a target
I take my orders from fools
Meanwhile some kid blows my head off
Well, I play by their rules
That's why I'm doin' it my way
I took the law in my hands

So here I am in the alleyway
A wad of cash in my pants
I get paid by a ten year old
He says he looks up to me
There's still crime in the city
But it's good to be free.
Yeah.

Now I come from a family
That has a broken home
Sometimes I talk to Daddy
On the telephone
When he says that he loves me
I know that he does
But I wish I could see him
I wish I knew where he was
But that's the way all my friends are
Except maybe one or two
Wish I could see him this weekend
Wish I could walk in his shoes
But now I'm doin' my own thing
Sometimes I'm good, then I'm bad
Although my home has been broken
It's the best home I ever had
Yeah.

Well, I keep gettin' younger
My life's been funny that way
Before I ever learned to talk
I forgot what to say
I sassed back to my mom
I sassed back to my teacher
I got thrown out of Bible school
For sassin' back at the preacher
Then I grew up to be a fireman
Put out every fire in town
Put out anything smokin'
But when I put the hose down
The judge sent me to prison
He gave me life without parole
Wish I never put the hose down
Wish I never got old.

Genre: Alternative Rock

Live SBSR 2004

So this is how it feels to be young
Let's turn off the light, let's blackout the sun
We can't be bought and can't be sold
We figure out ways of deranging the world

From dust to gold

So tonight
We'll cut away these puppet strings
We'll speed through roads that guide our dreams
So tonight
We'll climb the towers and ring the bells
We'll make the myths we'll break the spells

So if you want to save the world
Just come with me I know the way to it girl
There's no one left down here to fight
We'll preach a different wrong from right

From grey to white

So tonight
We'll cut away these puppet strings
We'll speed through roads that guide our dreams
So tonight
We'll climb the towers and ring the bells
We'll make the myths we'll break the spells

So don't you give in
Please don't let them win
There's so much to try
We'll save the world tonight

So if you want to save the world
Just come with me I know the way the way to it girl
Just pack your anger and your sorrows
Don't you wait for tomorrow

To save me girl


Comment : I cannot describe how much admiration I fell for this talented musician. I have followed his career for many years now, and I never had a doubt he would suceed immensly.
Silence 4 was a great project, his colaborations with Sergio Godinho were fabulous and the project "Humanos" was superb. He has been 3 times in Madeira and I've had the pleasure to watch him live everytime.
Still waiting for him to bring here his latest album. When he does I'll be there once again to listen...
I'm not just saying this because he is Portuguese...
He will be playing this year in the "South By Southwest Festival" in Texas.
I'm sure in a couple of weeks many Americans will agree with me...

You will find me if you want me in the garden
unless it's pouring down with rain
You will find me if you want me in the garden

You will find me if you want me in the garden

You will find me if you want me in the garden

You will find me waiting through spring and summer
You will find me waiting waiting for the fall
You will find me waiting for the apples to riped
You will find me waiting for them to fall
You will find me by the banks of all four rivers
You will find me at the spring of consciousness

You will find me if you want me in the garden
unless it's pouring down with rain
You will find me if you want me in the garden
unless it's pouring down with rain
You will find me if you want me in the garden

Take me, break me


Take me, break me
Tell me a good one and maybe I'll cry
Go with me, show me
Tell me a good one and maybe I'll die
Lately I've been dancing in ceiling fans
Into the kitchen and out the back gate
Well I know it sounds strange but it could be the other way
Round to the ground where I know I must stay
Take me, break me
Tell me a good one and maybe I'll cry
Go with me, show me
Tell me a good one and maybe I'll die
Lately I've been dancing in ceiling fans
Circled in secrets, playing a game
Well I know it sounds strange but it could be the other way
Round to a town where they don't know your name
Together....for a while....ain't no good

Videoclip

The lack of light, hollow sea
Poison beaches, limousines
Toothless dentists, cops that kill

My baby's got the lonesome lows, don't quite go away overnight
Doctor Blind, just prescribe the blue ones
If the dizzying highs don't subside overnight
Doctor Blind, just prescribe the red ones

Da da-da, da-da da-dum, da da-da
Ah ah-ah, ah-ah da-dum, ah-da-da da

Hard to hold, cold to touch
Fall to pieces, treat the rush
In hindsight, primetime talk
All your pain will end here
Let the doctor soothe your brain, dear

My baby's got the lonesome lows, don't quite go away overnight
Doctor Blind, just prescribe the blue ones
If the dizzying highs don't subside overnight
Docter Blind, just prescribe the red ones

Da, da-da-da, da da da da
Da-da-da-da-da-da da da
Da-ah-ah-ah

Mmm-mmm-mmm mmm-mmm-mmm, ah ah
Da-da-da-da-da-da da da
Da-da-da-da
Mmm-mmm-mmm mmm-mmm-mmm, ah ah

Comment:
Learned about this talented singer and musician through David Fonseca's newsletter.
As soon as I get the time I will make myself more familiar with her work in the band Metric and Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton. And I suggest you do to.

I'm thinking about you all the time
Is it the howl of the devil or a sound divine?
I know it's wrong but I know it's right
I gotta get a grip on you somehow

I spend my days and I spend my nights
going over every second of the time we had
going over the scenes
going over the dreams
but tripping over all the edges of reality


I'm thinking about you all the time
But it don't do me no good it puts
my love on the line
It's something in the air
It feels cold as ice
I guess that every time you play
you gotta pay the price

I'm thinking about you all the time
Who are you anyway? You precious ghost of mine
I hope that when you leave I will survive

But today I feel like drowning in a
sea of wine

I know it sounds bizarre but that's the way it is
I dread the moment I will call you for another kiss
I never ever had a doubt about the life I lead

but since we met I can t help
wondering if that's all I need

the apples and the pears they taste so good
the summer s coming up and it will do me good
the birds are singing in the trees
all that s lacking is a little bit of
inner peace


I'm thinking about you all the time
but I don't really know why, it's an emotional crime

I gotta get back to where I was before
But when I get there, all I do is think some more

I'm thinking about you all the time
Is it the howl of the devil or a sound devine?
I know it's wrong but I know it's right
I gotta get a grip on you somehow
I gotta get a grip on you somehow
I gotta get a grip on you somehow

Comment:
This group started as "A BeatBand", the founder of the band and lead singer Stef Kamil Carlens played and co-founded the Belgian band dEUS, and all members played in several bands.
Under the name Moondog Jr. they released in 1995 the FANTASTIC album "Everyday I Wear A Greasy Black Feather On My Hat". Shortly after that because of legal complications with the band's name, they changed it to Zita Swoon.

Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - The Weeping Song

Album: The Good Son
Track Nr : 4
Duration: 4:21
Year
: 1990
Genre: Alternative / Post-Punk


Go son, go down to the water
And see the women weeping there
Then go up into the mountains
The men, they are weeping too.
Father, why are all the women weeping?
They all are weeping for their men
Then why are all the men there weeping?
They are weeping back at them.

This is a weeping song
A song in which to weep
While all the men and women sleep.
This is a weeping song
But I won't be weeping long.


Father why are all the children weeping?
They are merely crying son.
O, are they merely crying father?
Yes, true weeping is yet to come.


This is a weeping song
A song in which to weep
While all the little children sleep.
This is a weeping song
But I won't be weeping long.


O father tell me are you weeping?
Your face seems wet to touch.
O then I'm so sorry father
I never thought I hurt you so much.


This is a weeping song
A song in which to weep
While we rock ourselves to sleep.
This is a weeping song
But I won't be weeping long
No. I won't be weeping long

I am the passenger
And I ride and I ride
I ride through the citys backside
I see the stars come out of the sky
Yeah, theyre bright in a hollow sky
You know it looks so good tonight
I am the passenger
I stay under glass
I look through my window so bright
I see the stars come out tonight
I see the bright and hollow sky
Over the citys a rip in the sky
And everything looks good tonight
Singin la la la la la-la-la la
La la la la la-la-la la
La la la la la-la-la la la-la
Get into the car
Well be the passenger
Well ride through the city tonight
See the citys ripped insides
Well see the bright and hollow sky
Well see the stars that shine so bright
The sky was made for us tonight
Oh the passenger
How how he rides
Oh the passenger
He rides and he rides
He looks through his window
What does he see?
He sees the bright and hollow sky
He see the stars come out tonight
He sees the citys ripped backsides
He sees the winding ocean drive
And everything was made for you and me
All of it was made for you and me
cause it just belongs to you and me
So lets take a ride and see whats mine
Singing...
Oh, the passenger
He rides and he rides
He sees things from under glass
He looks through his windows eye
He sees the things he knows are his
He sees the bright and hollow sky
He sees the city asleep at night
He sees the stars are out tonight
And all of it is yours and mine
And all of it is yours and mine
Oh, lets ride and ride and ride and ride...
Singing...
