You are under my power

It is the power of love

Eyes that hypnotize

And all it takes is just one glance

My baby must be a magician, Marvelettes

Wash away my troubles, wash away my pain

With the rain in Shambala

Wash away my sorrow, wash away my shame

With the rain in Shambala

Three Dog Night

Have you been around? Have you done your share of coming down?

On different things that people do?

Have you been aware? You got brothers and sisters who care

About what’s gonna happen to you in a year from now

There’s a port on a western bay

And it serves a hundred ships a day

Lonely Sailors pass the time away

And talk about their homes

After he had journeyed

And his feet were sore, he was tired

He came upon an orange grove

And he rested

And he lay in the cool

And while he rested, he took to himself an orange and tasted it

And it was good

"Going Backward" - Depeche Mode 

 

We are not there yet
We have not evolved
We have no respect
We have lost control
We're going backwards
Ignoring the realities
Going backwards
Are you counting all the casualties?

I've been so many places
In my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs
I've made some bad rhymes
I've acted out my love on stages
With ten thousand people watching
But we're alone now and
I'm singing this song to you


A Song for You-Leon Russell

Molly Hatchet"Stone In Your Heart".

 

"Is this how it ends?
We're strangers again
It's over but you won't explain
No kiss no goodbye, not one final lie
Just cold to the bone from the ice's that's runnin' through your veins
You have stone in your heart."

Hey man, Oh Henry get off the phone, I gotta

Hey man, I gotta straighten my face

The warden threw a party in the county jail
The prison band was there, and they began to wail
The band was jumpin', and the joint began to swing
You should've heard them knocked out jailbirds sing
