Ella Fitzgerald

'Round Midnight

it begins to tell
'round midnight, midnight
i do pretty well, till after sundown
suppertime i'm feelin' sad
but it really gets bad
'round midnight
memories always start 'round midnight
haven't got the heart to stand those memories
when my heart is still with you
and ol' midnight knows it, too
when a quarrel we had needs mending
does it mean that our love is ending

darlin' i need you, lately i find
you're out of my heart
and i'm out of my mind
let our hearts take wings
'round midnight, midnight
let the angels sing
for your returning
till our love is safe and sound
and old midnight comes around
feelin' sadreally gets bad
'round midnight

"'Round Midnight" Ella Fitzgerald

Meet Me By The Water

would you please meet me by the water, baby
we'll have a really good time
would you please meet me by the water, baby
cause i can't get you off of my mind
.
i've been thinking everyday about you
don't fit anywhere into my life, but that's okay
cause i think i might be right for you
and because of that, i'm not scared at all
and everyone says i'm crazy
and everyone says i'm a fool
would you meet me by the water tonight
cause i'm ready to break all the rules
.
please don't leave me standing
with my heart in my hand
i can't last here
i'm breaking down
and no on understands why i got here
but i knew from the very first moment
that i met you
you'd be the one
.
would you meet me by the water tonight
would you please fall asleep
holding my hand
cause i've got everything in store for you, baby
if you'll be my man

The Man I Love

someday he'll come along
the man i love
and he'll be big and strong
the man i love
and when he comes my way
i'll do my best to make him stay

he'll look at me and smile
i'll understand
then in a little while
he'll take my hand
and though it seems absurd
i know we both won't say a word

maybe i shall meet him sunday
maybe monday, maybe not
still i'm sure to meet him one day
maybe tuesday will be my good news day

he'll build a little home
that's meant for two
from which i'll never roam
who would, would you
and so all else above
i'm dreaming of the man i love

Dolphins

sometimes i think
about saturday’s child
and all about the times
when we were running wild
i’ve been out searching
for the dolphins in the sea
ah, but sometimes i wonder
do you ever think of me
.
this old world will
never change the way it’s been
and all the ways of war
won’t change it back again
i’ve been out searchin’
for the dolphin in the sea
ah, but sometimes i wonder
do you ever think of me
.
this old world
will never change

Girl From The North Country

well, if you're travelin' in the north country fair
where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
remember me to one who lives there
she once was a true love of mine

well, if you go when the snowflakes storm
when the rivers freeze and summer ends
please see if she's wearing a coat so warm
to keep her from the howlin' winds

please see for me if her hair hangs long
if it rolls and flows all down her breast
please see for me if her hair hangs long
that's the way i remember her best

i'm a-wonderin' if she remembers me at all
many times i've often prayed
in the darkness of my night
in the brightness of my day

so if you're travelin' in the north country fair
where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
remember me to one who lives there
she once was a true love of mine

Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue

Where The Wild Roses Grow

from the first day i saw her i knew she was the one
as she stared in my eyes and smiled
for her lips were the colour of the roses
they grew down the river, all bloody and wild

when he knocked on my door and entered the room
my trembling subsided in his sure embrace
he would be my first man, and with a careful hand
he wiped the tears that ran down my face

on the second day i brought her a flower
she was more beautiful than any woman i'd seen
i said, 'do you know where the wild roses grow
so sweet and scarlet and free?'

on the second day he came with a single rose
said: 'will you give me your loss and your sorrow?'
i nodded my head, as i layed on the bed
he said, 'if i show you the roses will you follow?'

on the third day he took me to the river
he showed me the roses and we kissed
and the last thing i heard was a muttered word
as he stood smiling above me with a rock in his fist

on the last day i took her where the wild roses grow
and she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief
as i kissed her goodbye, i said, 'all beauty must die'
and lent down and planted a rose between her teeth

Mine Three Men ...

Neil Young

Like A Hurricane

once i thought i saw you in a crowded hazy bar
dancing on the light from star to star
far across the moonbeam i know that's who you are
i saw your brown eyes turning once to fire

you are like a hurricane, there's calm in your eye
and i'm gettin' blown away to somewhere safer
where the feeling stays
i want to love you
but i'm getting blown away

i am just a dreamer, but you are just a dream
you could have been anyone to me
before that moment you touched my lips
that perfect feeling, when time just slips
away between us, on our foggy trip

you are like a hurricane, there's calm in your eye
and i'm gettin' blown away to somewhere safer
where the feeling stays
i want to love you
but i'm getting blown away

you are just a dreamer, and i am just a dream
you could have been anyone to me
before that moment you touched my lips
that perfect feeling, when time just slips
away between us, on our foggy trip

you are like a hurricane, there's calm in your eye
and i'm gettin' blown away to somewhere safer
where the feeling stays
i want to love you
but i'm getting blown away

Sometimes I Need Them ...

If It Be Your Will

if it be your will, that i speak no more
and my voice be still, as it was before
i will speak no more, i shall abide until
i am spoken for, if it be your will

if it be your will, that a voice be true
from this broken hill, i will sing to you
from this broken hill, all your praises they shall ring
if it be your will, to let me sing

if it be your will, if there is a choice
let the rivers fill, let the hills rejoice
let your mercy spill, on all these burning hearts in hell
if it be your will, to make us well

and draw us near, and bind us tight
all your children here, in their rags of light
in our rags of light, all dressed to kill
and end this night, if it be your will

if it be your will

Over The Rainbow

somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
there's a land that i heard of, once in a lullaby
somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
and the dreams that you dare to dream
really do come true

some day i'll wish upon a star
and wake up where the clouds are far behind me
where troubles melt like lemondrops
away above the chimney tops
that's where you'll find me

somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
birds fly over the rainbow
why then, oh why can't i?
some day i'll wish upon a star
and wake up where the clouds are far behind me
where troubles melt like lemondrops
away above the chimney tops
that's where you'll find me

somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
birds fly over the rainbow
why then, oh why can't i?
if happy little bluebirds fly
beyond the rainbow
why, oh why can't i?

Sigur Ros /// Vanilla Sky

Svefn-G-Englar

i'm here again, inside you
i'ts so good staying here, but i stay a short while
i float around in underwater hibernation
in a hotel connected to the electricity board and nourishing
the wait makes me uneasy, i kick the fragility away
and shout i have to go, help
i explode out and the peace is gone
bathed in new light
i cry and i cry, disconnected
a ruined brain put on breasts
and fed by sleepwalkers

i slide myself forward through my head
i think half way backwards
see myself sing the anthem
that we wrote together
we had a dream, we had everything
we rode to the end of the world, we rode searching
climbed skyscrapers, that later exploded
the peace was out, i leak balance, fall down
i slide myself forward, through my head
i always come back to the same place
total silence, no answer
but the best thing god has created
is a new day

New Light Of Tomorrow

you gave me hope amidst my sorrow
may it be tomorrow, that i can love again
and in return for what i've borrowed
be with you tomorrow and until the end

i know the road we're on is narrow
along comes tomorrow, we're gonna see the sun
and with the wings of the first sparrow
new light of tomorrow
we're gonna be as one

Katie Melua

Just Like Heaven

show me how you do that trick
the one that makes me scream, he said
the one that makes me laugh, he said
and threw his arms around my neck
show me how you do it
and i promise you, i promise that
i'll run away with you

spinning on that dizzy edge
i kissed his face and kissed his head
and dreamed of all the different ways
i had to make him glow
why are you so far away? he said
why won't you ever know
that i'm in love with you

you, soft and only
you, lost and lonely
you, strange as angels
dancing in the deepest oceans
twisting in the water
you're just like a dream

daylight licked me into shape
i must have been asleep for days
and moving lips to breathe his name
i opened up my eyes
and found myself alone alone
alone above a raging sea
that stole the only boy i loved
and drowned him deep inside of me

you, soft and only
you, lost and lonely
you, just like heaven

Rest Your Eyes

you said to write you a song
so here, this is for you
.
now as you toss through those lonely nights
just know there is someone thinking of you
everyone is waiting for the timing to be right
and we hope it's coming soon
so just rest your eyes and then
you'll be in love again
.
we talked and the moon was bright
your words were glowing as they drifted out of sight
but now the change of the seasons sets in and nothing
nothing feels just right
we fear these nights and then we compromise
yeah, but morning always comes
so just rest your eyes and then
you'll be in love again

So You'll Aim Toward The Sky

so you'll aim toward the sky
and you'll rise high today
fly away
far away
far from pain
