Eagle Eye Cherry - Save Tonight 
go on and close the curtains
'cause all we need is candlelight
you and me ... and the bottle of wine
and hold you tonight [ ohh ]

well we know i'm going away
and how i wish - i wish it weren't so
so take this wine and drink with me
let's delay our misery

save tonight and fight the break of dawn
come tomorrow - tomorrow i'll be gone
save tonight and fight the break of dawn
come tomorrow - tomorrow i'll be gone

there's a log on the fire
and it burns like me for you
tomorrow comes with one desire
to take me away [ ohh it's true ]

it ain't easy to say good bye
darling please - don't start to cry
'cause girl you know i've got to go [ohh ]
and Lord i wish it wasn't so

save tonight and fight the break of dawn
come tomorrow - tomorrow i'll be gone
save tonight and fight the break of dawn
come tomorrow - tomorrow i'll be gone

tomorrow comes to take me away
i wish that i - that i could stay
but girl you know i've got to go [ohh ]
and Lord i wish wasn't so

save tonight and fight the break of dawn
come tomorrow - tomorrow i'll be gone [ 4x ]

tomorrow i'll be gone [ 4x ]

save tonight [ 4x ]
oh thats right
save tonight - save tonight

 Eagle Eye Cherry - Converation
Conversation with the child who once believed in you
How does one explain to him what it is you do
He says Daddy Daddy please tell me it's not true
What all the people are saying...saying about you

There comes a time when one must face
The life that you have led
That is a hard thing to do
When lies is all that has been said
And the blamesless eyes of an innocent youth
Is the begging for you to tell the truth
It's such a hard way to learn...hard way to learn

This moment of truth will hurt for life
Don't need to tell you that ain't right
Come now little boy don't you cry
'Cause the child in you is still alive

Conversation with the child who once believed in you
How does one explain to him what it is you do
He says Daddy Daddy please tell me its not true
What all the people are saying...saying about you

There comes a time in this child's life
When the boy becomes a man
So many things from his past he now can understand
Like all the the times
When Dad would leave and be gone for so long
And he thought everything was all right
And he thought everything was all right

This moment of truth will hurt for life
Don't need to tell you that ain't right
COme now little boy don't you cry
'Cause the child in you is still alive

This moment of truth will hurt for life
Don't need to tell you that ain't right
Come now little boy don't you cry
'Cause the child in you is still alive
Such a hard way to learn.....(repeat)
Coldplay - The Scientist
Code:
Come up to meet you, Tell you I’m sorry, You don’t know how lovely you are

I had to find you, Tell you I need you, Tell you I set you apart

Tell me your secrets, And ask me your questions, Aww let’s go back to the start

Runnin’ in circles, [sounds like] Comin’ our tails, Heads on the science apart

Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Aww take me back to the start

I was just guessin’, At numbers and figures, Pullin’ the puzzles apart

Questions of science, Science and progress, Do not speak as loud as my heart

Tell me you love me, Come back to haunt me, Oh when I rush to the start

Runnin’ in circles, [sounds like] Chasin’ our tails, Comin’ back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
Aww It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I’m goin’ back to the start

Ahhooooooooooooooooo
Ahhooooooooooooooooo
Ahhooooooooooooooooo
Ahhooooooooooooooooo

Coldplay - Don't Panic
Code:
Oh, we're sinking like stones,

All that we fought for,

All those places we've gone,

All of us are done for.



We live in a beautiful world,

Yeah we do, yeah we do,

We live in a beautiful world,

Oh, we're sinking like stones,

All that we fought for,

All those places we've gone,

All of us are done for.



We live in a beautiful world,

Yeah we do, yeah we do,

We live in a beautiful world.



Oh, all that I know,

There's nothing here to run from,

And there, everybody here's got somebody to lean on.
Coldplay - Clocks
Code:
Lights go out and I can’t be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Brought me down upon my knees
Oh I beg, I beg and plead

Singin’, come out if things aren’t said
Shoot an apple off my head
And a, trouble that can’t be named
Tigers waitin’ to be tamed

Singing, yooooooooooooo ohhhhhh
Yoooooooooooo ohhhhhh

Confusion never stops
Closing walls and ticking clocks
Gonna, come back and take you home
I could not stop that you now know

Singin’, come out upon my seas
Curse missed opportunities
Am I, a part of the cure
Or am I part of the disease

Singin’, yoooooooooooo ohhhhhh
Yooooooooooooo ohhhhhh
Yooooooooooooo ohhhhhh
Yooooooooooooo ohhhhhh

Yooooooooooooo ohhhhhh
Yooooooooooooo ohhhhhh

Oh nothing else compares
Oh nothing else compares
And nothing else compares

Yooooooooooooo ohhhhhh
Yooooooooooooo ohhhhhh

Home, home, where I wanted to go
Home, home, where I wanted to go

Coldplay - Fix You (I Really Like This Song's Lyrics)
Code:
When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
COULD IT BE WORSE?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you.
Coldplay - Yellow
Code:
Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah they were all yellow,

I came along
I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called yellow

So then I took my turn
Oh all the things I've done
And it was all yellow

Your skin
Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
D'you know you know I love you so
You know I love you so

I swam across
I jumped across for you
Oh all the things you do
Cause you were all yellow

I drew a line
I drew a line for you
Oh what a thing to do
And it was all yellow

Your skin
Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
D'you know for you i bleed myself dry
For you i bleed myself dry

Its true look how they shine for you
look how they shine for you
look how they shine for you
look how they shine for you
look how they shine for you
look how they shine
look at the stars look how they shine for you
Alright guys just one more, Coldplay - In My Place
Code:
In my place, in my place
Were lines that I couldn't change
I was lost, oh yeah

I was lost, I was lost
Crossed lines I shouldn't have crossed
I was lost, oh yeah

Yeah, how long must you wait for him?
Yeah, how long must you pay for him?
Yeah, how long must you wait for him?

I was scared, I was scared
Tired and underprepared
But I wait for you

If you go, if you go
Leaving me here on my own
Well I wait for you

Yeah, how long must you wait for him?
Yeah, how long must you pay for him?
Yeah, how long must you wait for him?

Please, please, please
Come on and sing to me
To me, me

Come on and sing it out, out, out
Come on and sing it now, now, now
Come on and sing it

In my place, in my place
Were lines that I couldn't change
I was lost, oh yeah
Oh yeah
Heres a Bit of Motovational song, simple and straight forward lyrics
Chicane - Don't Give Up (Vocals on this song are done by Bryan Adams)
Code:
Don't give it up

Don't worry if the sun don't shine
You've seen it before, you don't need to worry
Every day's an uphill climb, nothing has changed
Believe me when I tell ya

Don't give it up
Don't give it up

Don't give up, you know it's true
You gotta do what you wanna do
Don't give up, you don't have to
You gotta do what you wanna do
Oh yeah
Don't give it up, you know it's true
You gotta do what you wanna do

Don't worry if the sun don't shine
You've seen it before, you don't need to worry
Every day's an uphill climb, nothing has changed
Believe me when I tell ya

Don't give it up

Don't give up, you know it's true
You gotta do what you wanna do
Don't give up, you don't have to
You gotta do what you wanna do
Oh yeah
Don't give it up, you know it's true
You gotta do what you wanna do
Foo Fighters - Best Of You
Code:
I’ve got another confession to make
I’m your fool
Everyone’s got their chains to break
Holdin’ you

Were you born to resist or be abused?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Are you gone and onto someone new?
I needed somewhere to hang my head
Without your noose
You gave me something that I didn’t have
But had no use
I was too weak to give in
Too strong to lose
My heart is under arrest again
But I break loose
My head is giving me life or death
But I can’t choose
I swear I’ll never give in
I refuse

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
You trust, you must
Confess
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Oh...

Oh...Oh...Oh...Oh...

Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
The life, the love
You die to heal
The hope that starts
The broken hearts
You trust, you must
Confess

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

I’ve got another confession my friend
I’m no fool
I’m getting tired of starting again
Somewhere new

Were you born to resist or be abused?
I swear I’ll never give in
I refuse

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
You trust, you must
Confess
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Oh...

That's so wrong, music is good from every detail, guitar, bass, drums, voicals, and lyrics, they all come together and make a song good. Even if one songs "tune" sucks the lyrics could make it good. I'm pretty sure It takes longer then 5 minites to write, sing I was in a band before thank you.

I have always been a big fan of Eminem and Jay-Z, both in regards to sound and how lyrically talented they are. I will post lyrics from some of my favorite songs later today, but don't want to look them up as I am at work :)

The thing I love about Eminem is how he changes his words phonetically to make it ryhme with the beat. Jay-Z I used to think was okay, but if you take his word about free styling every rap he does, you have to admit that's some skill involved there too :)

The normal writing precedure of today ..

1. Go to bathroom with pen and paper
2. Sit on can
3. Power squeeze
4. Write a line
5. Power squeez again
6. Write another line
7. Repeat steps 3, 4, 5, and 6 until said hit comes out.

The above should take about 3 to 5 minutes. You may not believe this, but the biggest majority of hits were written in less than 5 minutes. Hence the reason why a lot of todays music is crap.

As far as favorite lyrics:
Code:
[B]Majesty (Here I Am)[/B] - Delirious?, World Service.

 Here I am humbled by your Majesty
Covered by your grace so free
Here I am, knowing I'm a sinful man
Covered by the blood of the Lamb

Now I've found the greatest love of all is mine
Since you laid down your life
The greatest sacrifice

Majesty, Majesty
Your grace has found me just as I am
Empty handed, but alive in your hands
Majesty, Majesty
Forever I am changed by your love
In the presence of your Majesty

Here I am humbled by the love that you give
Forgiven so that I can forgive
Here I stand, knowing that I'm your desire
Sanctified by glory and fire

Now I've found the greatest love of all is mine
Since you laid down your life
The greatest sacrifice

This isn't to bad...not sure who many people will like it.

Code:
Brand New - Soco Amaretto Lime

Passed out on the overpass 
Sunday best and broken glass 
Broken down from the bikes and bars 
Suspended like spirits over speeding cars 
You and me we're kings over the parkway tonight 
And tonight will go on forever while we 
walk around this town like we own the streets 
and stay awake through summer like we own the heat 
Singing "everybody wake up (wake up) it's time to get down" 
(everybody, everybody wake up it's time to get down) 
And when I pass the bottle back to Pete 
on the overpass tonight, I bet we laugh 

I'm gonna stay eighteen forever (cut me open) 
So we can stay like this forever (sun poisoned) 
And we'll never miss a party (this offer...)
cause we keep them going constantly (...stands forever)
And we'll never have to listen (new haircut) 
to anyone about anything (new bracelet) 
cause it's all been done and its all been said (eyeliner) 
we're the coolest kids and we take what we can get

The hell out of this town 
Find some conversation 
The low fuel lights been on for days 
It doesn't mean anything 
I've got another 500, 'nother 500 miles 
before we shut this engine down, 
we shut it down

I'm gonna stay eighteen forever (cut me open) 
So we can stay like this forever (sun poisoned) 
And we'll never miss a party (this offer...)
cause we keep them going constantly (...stands forever)
And we'll never have to listen (new haircut) 
to anyone about anything (new bracelet) 
cause its all been done and its all been said (eyeliner) 
we're the coolest kids and we take what we can get (wait forever) 

(you're just jealous cause I'm young and in love) 
Eighteen forever (first kisses)
(your stomach's filled up but you're starved for conversation) 
So we can stay like this forever (new stitches)
(you're spending all your nights growing old in your bed) 
And we'll never miss a party (collar weekend)
(and your tearin up your photos cause you wanna forget... it's over) 
cause we keep them going constantly (appearance ticket)
(you're just jealous cause I'm young and in love) 
And we'll never have to listen (November to...)
(your stomach's filled up but you're starved for conversation) 
to anyone about anything cause it's all been done (...remember)
(you're spending all your nights growing old in your bed) 
and it's all been said (nightswimmers)
(and your tearin up your photos cause you wanna forget... it's over) 
we're the coolest kids and we take what we can get 

Just jealous cause we're young and in love 
You're just jealous cause we're young and in love 
You're just jealous cause we're young and in love 
You're just jealous cause we're young and in love 
You're just jealous cause we're young and in love 
You're just jealous cause we're young and in love
You're just jealous cause [turntable scratch]
I actually think all the songs from Brand New's Deja Entendu CD are great and have good lyrics.

Lyrically, I liked "Things I Don't Understand" from Coldplay.

How tides control the sea, and what becomes of me
How little things can slip out of your hands
How often people change, no two remain the same
Why things don't always turn out as you plan

These are things that I don't understand
Yeah, these are things that I don't understand

I can't, and I cant decide
Wrong, all my wrong from right
Day, all my day for night
Dark, all my dark for light
I live, but I love this life

How infinite is space, and who decides your fate
Why everything will dissolve into sand
How to avoid defeat, when truth and fiction meet
Why nothing ever turns out how you planned

These are things that I don't understand
Yeah, these are things that I don't understand

I can't, and I cant decide
Wrong, all my wrong from right
Day, all my day for night
Or dark, all my dark for light
I live, but I love this life
Beautiful. :)

All around, I loved this following ditty

Code:
We passed upon the stairs, we spoke of was and when
Although I wasn't there, he said I was his friend
Which came as a surprise I spoke into his eyes
I thought you died alone, a long long time ago

Oh no, not me
We never lost control
You're face to face
of a man who sold the world

I laughed and shook his hand, and made my way back home
I searched a far the land, for years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazey stare, we walked a million hills
I must have died alone, a long long time ago

Who knows? not me
I never lost control
You're face to face
With the man who sold the world

Who knows? not me
We never lost control
You're face to face
With the man who sold the world
I prefer Nirvana's accoustic version to Bowie's original, but, depends on my mood. Great track, great album by Bowie either way :)
