I've got this one in my "Songs About Hookers" playlist.

Burnin' For You - Blue Oyster Cult (lyrics by Richard Meltzer)
 
Home in the valley
Home in the city
Home isn't pretty
Ain't no home for me
Home in the darkness
Home on the highway
Home isn't my way
Home will never be
Burn out the day
Burn out the night
I can't see no reason to put up a fight
I'm living for giving the devil his due
And I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
Time is the essence
Time is the season
Time ain't no reason
Got no time to slow
Time everlasting
Time to play b-sides
Time ain't on my side
Time I'll never know
Burn out the day
Burn out the night
I'm not the one to tell you what's wrong or what's right
I've seen suns that were freezing and lives that were through
Well I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
Burn out the day
Burn out the night
I can't see no reason to put up a fight
I'm living for giving the devil his due
And I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you

Sentimental Lady by Bob Welch

 

"And all of the things that I said that I wanted

Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you

Fourteen joys and a will to be merry

And all of the things we say are very

Sentimental gentle wind

Blowing through my life again

Sentimental lady

Gentle one"......

"The fireman rushes in from the pouring rain,

Very strange."

I've always like this from "Penny Lane"

Turn The Page - Bob Seger

 

On a long and lonesome highway
East of Omaha
You can listen to the engine
moanin' out his one note song
You can think about the woman
or the girl you knew the night before
But your thoughts will soon be wandering
the way they always do
When you're ridin' sixteen hours
and there's nothin' much to do
And you don't feel much like ridin',
you just wish the trip was through
*
Well you walk into a restaurant,
strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you
as you're shakin' off the cold
You pretend it doesn't bother you
but you just want to explode
Most times you can't hear 'em talk,
other times you can
All the same old cliches,
"Is that a woman or a man?"
And you always seem outnumbered,
you don't dare make a stand
*
Out there in the spotlight
you're a million miles away
Every ounce of energy
you try to give away
As the sweat pours out your body
like the music that you play
Later in the evening
as you lie awake in bed
With the echoes from the amplifiers
ringin' in your head
You smoke the day's last cigarette,
rememberin' what she said
 
*Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin' star again
There I go

If not for you by Bob Dylan, George Harrison

 

"If not for you

The winter would hold no spring

Couldn't hear a robin sing

I just wouldn't have a clue, if not for you"......

Flowers Never Bend With The Rainfall - S&G

 

Through the corridors of sleep
Past shadows dark and deep
My mind dances and leaps in confusion
I don't know what is real
I can't touch what I feel
And I hide behind the shield of my illusion
So I'll continue to continue to pretend
My life will never end
And flowers never bend
With the rainfall
The mirror on my wall
Casts an image dark and small
But I'm not sure at all it's my reflection
I am blinded by the light
Of God and truth and right
And I wander in the night without direction
So I'll continue to continue to pretend
My life will never end
And flowers never bend
With the rainfall
No matter if you're born
To play the King or pawn
For the line is thinly drawn 'tween joy and sorrow
So my fantasy
Becomes reality
And I must be what I must be and face tomorrow
So I'll continue to continue to pretend
My life will never end
And flowers never bend
With the rainfall

"He sang as if he knew me in

all my dark despair

and then he looked right

through me as if I wasn't there.

But he just came to singing.

singing clear and strong."

Dreamboat Annie by Heart

 

"Heading out this morning into the sun

Riding on the diamond waves, little darlin' one

Warm wind caress her

Her lover it seems

Oh, Annie, Dreamboat Annie

 My little ship of dreams

Going down the city sidewalk alone in the crowd

No one knows the lonely one whose heads in the clouds

Sad faces painted over with those magazine smiles

Heading out to somewhere

Won't be back for awhile".......
