Friday Song Lyrics

It's been a strange week.

It's time for a weekend and time for some good music.

What are the voices in your head singing?

The songs currently running through my head:

Avenue Q Soundtrack: Mix Tape
A mix tape.
He made a mix tape.
He was thinking of me,
Which shows he cares!
Sometimes when someone
Has a crush on you
They'll make you a mix tape
To give you a clue.

Heroes (by David Bowie, Jakob Dylan and Ewan McGregor...not all at the same time)
I will be king
And you
You will be queen
Though nothing will
Drive them away
We can beat them
Just for one day
We can be Heroes
Just for one day

Neil Diamond, Hell Yeah (my grandfather...if I could choose my grandfather)
If you're asking for my time
Isn't much left to give you
Been around a good long while
So I gotta say it fast
Time is all we'll ever need
But it's gotta have a meaning
You be careful how it's spent
cause it isn't going to last
I hear you wondering out loud
Are you ever going to make it
Will you ever work it out
Will you ever take a chance
Just believe you can
Hell Yeah You Will
You're going to be okay

Five Iron Frenzy, Every Day New Again
When I was small, the furthest I could reach,
Was not so high,
Then I thought the world was so much smaller,
Feeling that I could fly.
Through distant deeps and skies,
Behind infinity,
Below the face of Heaven,
He stoops to create me.
Dear Father, I need you,
Your strength my heart to mend.
I want to fly higher,
Every new day again.

Rachael Yamagata, 1963
Baby, I'm stuck in the middle, and I don't know why
Find the words you sing to be
Sweeter than the words of the bird in the sky
Oh, the days you came around
I feel so good for me
I can take most anything
Cause what you bring

I find it to be magical
I feel like I'm loving you in 1963
Flowers in my hair
Little bitty hearts upon my cheek
Baby, you'll be on my mind
'Til I kiss you next time

Meatloaf: I'd Do Anything for Love

HER: Will you raise me up, will you help me down?
Will you get me right out of this Godforsaken town?
Will you make it all a little less cold?

HIM: I can do that! I can do that!

HER: Will you hold me sacred? Will you hold me tight?
Can you colorize my life, I'm so sick of black and white?
Can you make it all a little less old?

HIM: I can do that! Oh oh, now I can do that!

HER: Will you make me some magic, with your own two hands?
Can you build an emerald city with these grains of sand?
Can you give me something I can take home?

HIM: I can do that! Oh oh now, I can do that!

HER: Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
Will ya hose me down with holy water, if I get too hot?
Will you take me places I've never known?

HIM: I can do that! Oh oh now, I can do that!

Celine: Goodbye's The Saddest Word

Now I know
There is no other
Love like a mother's love for her child

And I know
A love so complete
Someday must leave
Must say goodbye

Goodbye's the saddest word I'll ever hear
Goodbye's the last time I will hold you near
Someday you'll say that word and I will cry
It'll break my heart to hear you say goodbye

I'll be there through the darkest nights
I'll be the wings that guide your broken flight
I'll be your shelter through the raging storm
And I will love you 'till forever comes.
