      Sailing down the river alone
      I've been trying to find
      My way back home
      But I don't believe in magic
      Life is automatic

      But I don't mind
      Being on my own
      No, I don't mind
      Being on my own


      Again another that's not very profound just one I like and haven't heard in ages.

      Oasis - Listen Up (album version)

      One of my favourite songs ever - cannot believe it was a b-side. That and Rockin Chair are hidden greats.

      "She runs through the streets
      With her eyes painted red
      Under a black belly of cloud in the rain
      In through a doorway she brings me
      White gold and pearls stolen from the sea
      She is raging
      She is raging
      And the storm blows up in her eyes
      She will...

      Suffer the needle chill
      She's running to stand...still"

      Is it heaven or hell at dawn
      you really go it up or your going down
      do you say your prayers late at night
      or do you save them for the desperate times

      do you see the beauty of a rose, i doubt it
      do you hear the children sing aloud, no
      can you see the leaves change the colors out there
      can you taste the water in your mouth

      is it any wonder
      is there any hope
      100mph
      yet the race just still runs slow
      the race just still feels slow

      do you believe in good will forever guide
      does your devil take you to your other side
      can karma kill you in your mind
      do you plan to solve this one tonight
      do you see the beauty in a rose, i doubt it
      can you hear the children sing aloud

      is it any wonder
      is there any hope
      100mph
      yet the race just still runs slow
      the race just still feels slow

      were running out of time, my friends
      your running out of time, oh yeah, oh yeah

      is there any wonder
      is there any hope
      100mph
      yet the race just still runs slow
      the race just still feels slow
      the race just still runs slow
      the race just still feels slow

      Let the raining teardrops rain down on me tonight
      I think making up, faking up stories is alright
      Tick tock stop the clock, fiction is my thing
      My attitude is always I and me and mine

      Oh I'm so clever
      Until my paranoia kicks in then I'll accuse her
      Of doing all the worst things i do best
      Its funny how me, f**king her about,
      Has got me in this f**king mess

      Liar liar pants on fire
      Lies alibis lies more alibis
      From the truth, I admit I'm more than shy
      Ain't the the times we are living in
      Everybody's doing it so why cant i?

      I tally up tonight's strangers
      And stragglers that I've kissed
      Training ground notches, perfectly executed notches
      And near misses
      Its all about going out and getting pissed with eagle eyes
      And sincerity bottom on my list
      What's the story morning glory?
      I feel so low and worthless

      So this is where the outcome unfurls and the truth is being told
      A cloud has gathered over my head and now i know
      Infidelity and my good friend ecstasy doesn't work, it makes you worse
      I'm feeling so guilty about the things i said to my mum when i was ten years old
      I'm feeling so guilty about any old sh*t
      And how I think my missus is f**king every guy that she looks at
      This is it, the end was always coming and now its here

      So this is the grande finale
      The crescendo of demise
      This is the happy ending
      Where the bad guy goes down and dies
      This is the end
      With me on my knees and wondering why?
      Cross my heart, hope to die
      Its my own cheating heart that makes me cry

      The boy with the thorn in his side
       Behind the hatred there lies
       A plundering desire for love
       How can they see the Love in our eyes
       And still they don't believe us ?
       And after all this time
       They don't want to believe us
       And if they don't believe us now
       Will they ever believe us ?
       And when you want to Live
       How do you start ?
       Where do you go ?
       Who do you need to know ?

      This wont mean much to non Dubliners, but its a belter. 1st line hooks ye in straight away

      Raised on songs & stories, heroes of re-known
       The passing tales & glories that once was Dublin town
       The hallowed halls & houses, the haunting childrens' rhymes
       That once was Dublin city in the rare ould times

       [Chorus:]
       Ring a ring a rosie, as the light declines
       I remember Dublin city in the rare ould times

       My name it is Sean Demspey, as Dublin as can be
       Born hard & late in Pimlico, in a house that ceased to be
       By trade I was a cooper, lost out to redundancy
       Like my house that fell to progress, my trade's a memory

       & I courted Peggy Dignan, as pretty as you please
       A rogue & a child of Mary, from the rebel liberties
       I lost her to a student chap with a skin as black as coal
       When he took her off to Birmingham, she took away my soul

       [Chorus]

       The years have made me bitter, the gargle dims my brain
       'Cause Dublin keeps on changing & nothing stays the same
       The Pillar & the Met have gone, the Royal long since pulled down
       As the great unyielding concrete makes a city of my town

       [Chorus]

       Fare thee well sweet Anna Liffey, I can no longer stay
       & watch the new glass cages, that spring up along the quay
       My mind's too full of memories, too old to hear new chimes
       I'm part of what was Dublin in the rare ould times

      I grew up fast
      And I grew up hard
      Something was wrong from the very start
      I was fighting everybody
      I was fighting everything
      But the only one that I hurt was me
      I got society's blood running down my face
      Somebody help me get outta this place
      How could someone's bad luck last so long?
      Until I realized that I was wrong.
      I was wrong
      Self destruction's got me again

      How many times have you asked yourself?
      Is this the hand of fate now that I've been dealt?
      You're so disillusioned this can't be real
      And you can't stand now the way you feel

      I don't care about what they say
      I won't live or die that way
      Tired of figuring out things on my own
      Angel's wings won't you carry me home?

      Bad Religion - I Want To Conquer The World

      I want to conquer the world
      Give all the idiots a brand new religion
      Put an end to poverty, uncleanliness and toil
      Promote equality in all of my decisions
      I want to conquer the world
      Expose the culprits and feed them to the children
      I'll do away with air pollution then I'll save the whales
      We'll have peace on earth and global communion
      I want to conquer the world

      Dead Kennedys - Kill The Poor

      Efficiency and progress is ours once more
      Now that we have the Neutron bomb
      It's nice and quick and clean and gets things done
      Away with excess enemy
      But no less value to property
      No sense in war but perfect sense at home:

      The sun beams down on a brand new day
      No more welfare tax to pay
      Unsightly slums gone up in flashing light
      Jobless millions whisked away
      At last we have more room to play
      All systems go to kill the poor tonight

      Gonna
      Kill kill kill kill Kill the poor tonight

      Behold the sparkle of champagne
      The crime rate's gone
      Feel free again
      O' life's a dream with you, Miss Lily White
      Jane Fonda on the screen today
      Convinced the liberals it's okay
      So let's get dressed and dance away the night

      While they

      When I see people blaming immigrants - humans like them, searching for a better life just like them - for an unequal society's problems, I get so terribly sad. And it reminds me of this truly awesome song by one of the best bands that ever existed, the Stiff Little Fingers.

      SLF - Harp

      Don't pity this poor immigrant
      My eyes were open when I caught the boat
      All I wanted was your shelter
      And maybe just a little hope
      But you turned your anger on me
      For the courage that you lack
      I don't want your half-assed freedom
      You can have the whole deal back
      Now let me tell you something
      Let's get this straight from the start
      Don't call me Harp

      Five Man Electrical Band - Signs

      and the sign said "long-haired freaky people need not apply"
      so I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why
      he said "you look like a fine upstanding young man, I think you'll do"
      so I took off my hat, I said "imagine that. huh! me working for you!"

      I once held her in my arms
      She said she would always stay
      But I was cruel
      I treated her like a fool
      I threw it all away

      Once I had mountains in the palm of my hand
      And rivers that ran through ev’ry day
      I must have been mad
      I never knew what I had
      Until I threw it all away

      Love is all there is, it makes the world go ’round
      Love and only love, it can’t be denied
      No matter what you think about it
      You just won’t be able to do without it
      Take a tip from one who’s tried

      So if you find someone that gives you all of her love
      Take it to your heart, don’t let it stray
      For one thing that’s certain
      You will surely be a-hurtin’
      If you throw it all away

      A Rainy Night in Soho (Videoclip) - The Pogues

      I've been loving you a long time
      Down all the years, down all the days
      And I've cried for all your troubles
      Smiled at your funny little ways
      We watched our friends grow up together
      And we saw them as they fell
      Some of them fell into Heaven
      Some of them fell into Hell

      I took shelter from a shower
      And I stepped into your arms
      On a rainy night in Soho
      The wind was whistling all its charms
      I sang you all my sorrows
      You told me all your joys
      Whatever happened to that old song
      To all those little girls and boys

      Sometimes I wake up in the morning
      The gingerlady by my bed
      Covered in a cloak of silence
      I hear you talking in my head
      I'm not singing for the future
      I'm not dreaming of the past
      I'm not talking of the fist time
      I never think about the last

      Now the song is nearly over
      We may never find out what it means
      Still there's a light I hold before me
      You're the measure of my dreams
      The measure of my dreams

      Best song I've heard in a long time by the best band of all time....

      Sirens - Pearl Jam

      Hear the sirens
      Hear the sirens

      Hear the sirens, Hear the circus so profound
      I hear the sirens, more and more in this here town

      Let me catch my breath to breathe and reach across the bed
      Just to know were safe I am a grateful man
      This life has been a light and I can see clear

      how to take your hand, and feel your breath
      or feel this someday will be over
      I hold you close, so much to lose
      knowing that nothing lasts forever


      I didnt care before you were here
      I danced with laughter with the ever after
      But all things change. Let this remain.

      Hear the sirens covering distance in the night
      The sound echoing closer, will they come for me next time?

      Oh every choice, mistake Ive made, its not my plan
      to send you in the arms of another man
      And if you choose to stay, Ill wait, Ill understand

      Its a fragile thing, this life we lead
      If I think too much, I cant get over
      Wound by the grace by which we live
      our lives with death over our shoulder
      Want you to know that should I go
      I always loved you, held you high above too
      I study your face, the fear goes away

      Its a fragile thing, this life we lead
      If I think too much, I cant get over
      Wound by the grace by which we live
      our lives with death over our shoulders
      Want you to know that should I go
      I always loved you, held you high above too
      I study your face, and the fear goes away
      The fear goes away
      The fear goes away
      The fear goes away

      It's such a perfect day, I'm glad I spend it with you

      Sometime the simplest lyrics are the best. It's maybe not one that jumps out but after listening to a few songs tonight after hearing about Lou's passing it strikes how effective this lyric is.

      Thought of you as my mountain top
      Thought of you as my peak
      Thought of you as everything
      I've had but couldn't keep

      First time hearing this:

      The National - Slipping Husband (Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers)

      I need more of The National in my life.



      Sit down, dear, we gotta talk, you're acting like a kid
      We don't wanna hear about the things you never did
      You could have been a legend, but you became a father
      That's what you are today, that's what you are today
      Spending all your time somewhere inside your head
      Haunted by the important life you could have lead
      But your kisses aren't enough to keep your kids in line
      So you better straighten out yourself and give your baby time
      'Cause if you don't give her what she needs
      She'll get it where she can 'cause she's lonely, man
      Don't don't leave yourself alone for too many days
      Sooner than you know you're gonna start slipping

      You'll end up talking to the ghost of your wife as if you knew her
      Your eyes will put her everywhere
      And spending all your time somewhere inside your head
      Haunted by the important life you could've lead
      You'll f**k yourself to clear your head
      You'll close your door and go to bed
      You'll try to sleep without a dream
      That's where she finds you
      That's where she finds you
      Don't leave yourself alone for too many days
      Sooner than you know you're gonna start slipping

      Dear we better get a drink in you before you start to bore us
      Dear we better get a drink in you before you start to bore us
      Dear we better get a drink in you before you start to bore us

      Future Days - Pearl Jam

      If I ever were to lose you
      I'd surely lose myself

      Everything I have found dear
      I've not found by myself

      Try and sometimes you'll succeed
      To make this man of me

      All my stolen missing parts
      I've no need for anymore

      I believe
      And I believe cause I can see
      Our future days
      Days of you and me

      Back when I was feeling broken
      I focused on a prayer

      You came deep as any ocean
      Did something out there hear?

      All the complexities and games
      No one wins but somehow they're still played

      All the missing crooked hearts
      They may die but in us they live on

      I believe
      And I believe cause I can see
      Our future days
      Days of you and me

      When hurricanes and cyclones raged
      When winds turned dirt to dust
      When floods they came or tides they raised
      Ever closer became us

      All the promises at sundown
      I've meant them like the rest

      All the demons used to come round
      I'm grateful now they've left

      So persistent in my ways
      Hey Angel I am here to stay
      No resistance, no alarms
      Please, this is just too good to be gone

      I believe
      And I believe cause I can see
      Our future days
      Days of you an me
      You and me
      Days,...
      You and me

      The island it is silent now
      But the ghosts still haunt the waves
      And the torch lights up a famished man
      Who fortune could not save

      Did you work upon the railroad
      Did you rid the streets of crime
      Were your dollars from the white house
      Were they from the five and dime

      Did the old songs taunt or cheer you
      And did they still make you cry
      Did you count the months and years
      Or did your teardrops quickly dry

      Ah, no, says he, 'twas not to be
      On a coffin ship I came here
      And I never even got so far
      That they could change my name

      Thousands are sailing
      Across the western ocean
      To a land of opportunity
      That some of them will never see
      Fortune prevailing
      Across the western ocean
      Their bellies full
      Their spirits free
      They'll break the chains of poverty
      And they'll dance

      In Manhattan's desert twilight
      In the death of afternoon
      We stepped hand in hand on Broadway
      Like the first man on the moon

      And "The Blackbird" broke the silence
      As you whistled it so sweet
      And in Brendan Behan's footsteps
      I danced up and down the street

      Then we said goodnight to Broadway
      Giving it our best regards
      Tipped our hats to Mister Cohan
      Dear old Times Square's favorite bard

      Then we raised a glass to JFK
      And a dozen more besides
      When I got back to my empty room
      I suppose I must have cried

      Thousands are sailing
      Again across the ocean
      Where the hand of opportunity
      Draws tickets in a lottery
      Postcards we're mailing
      Of sky-blue skies and oceans
      From rooms the daylight never sees
      Where lights don't glow on Christmas trees
      But we dance to the music
      And we dance

      Thousands are sailing
      Across the western ocean
      Where the hand of opportunity
      Draws tickets in a lottery
      Where e'er we go, we celebrate
      The land that makes us refugees
      From fear of Priests with empty plates
      From guilt and weeping effigies
      And we dance

      First time in ages I've listened to this tonight.

      The day trip over
      A tangerine sun
      Becomes blood red sun splashed horizon
      You walked yourself into the wilderness
      I wondered there did you ever guess
      You'd always remember me
      Always remember me
      Always remember me
      Always remember me

      Those were the days when
      We had it all
      And these are the times
      I got so much more
