    Take the makeup off your eyes
    I've got to see you, hear your sacred sighs
    Before the break up, comes the silence
    I'm talking to you. You say you're over it,
    But I know

    I thought I knew you. You thought you knew me
    But now that you do, it's not so easy now
    That I know

    You can cry; I won't go. You can scream; I won't go
    Every man that you know would have run at the word go
    Little boys with their porno, oh, I know they hurt you so
    They don't know what we know. Never know what we know

    And all your makeup, just take it all off
    I've got to find you before the line is lost
    I know I hurt you, I won't deny it
    When I reach for you, you say, "I'm over it."
    But I know

    You can cry; I won't go. You can scream; I won't go
    Every man that you know would have run at the word go
    Little boys with their porno, oh, I know they hurt you so
    They don't know what I know. It's so little that we know
    But the cup it overflows. Little boys with their porno
    This is their world, where can we go?

    Makes me feel like something's wrong with me
    Makes me feel like something's wrong with me
    Can you see me?

    You can cry; I won't go. You can scream; I won't go
    Little boys with their porno. Little boys with their porno
    Makes me feel like something's wrong. It's the only world we know
    Yeah, something's wrong. Little boys with their porno

    And boys they learn some selfish shit until the girl won't put up with it
    On and on and on we go. I just have to know. I'm not over it
    I'm not over it

    So love is real like a disease.
    Come on tell me please,
    I'm not over it
    I'm not over it

    White Bird
    In a golden cage
    On a winter's day
    In the rain
    White bird
    In a golden cage
    Alone

    The leaves blow
    Cross the long black road
    To the darkened skies
    In its rage
    But the white bird
    Just sits in her cage
    Unknown.

    White bird must fly
    Or she will die

    White bird
    Dreams of the aspen tree
    With their dying leaves
    Turning gold
    But the white bird
    Just sits in her cage
    Growing old.

    White bird must fly
    Or she will die
    White bird must fly
    Or she will die

    The sunsets come
    The sunsets go
    The clouds Float by
    And The Earth Turns slow
    And the Young Birds Eyes
    Do always Glow
    And She must fly
    She must fly
    She must fly

    White bird
    In a golden cage
    On a winter's day
    In the rain
    White bird
    In a golden cage
    Alone

    White bird must fly
    Or she will die
    White bird must fly
    Or she will die
    White bird must fly
    Or she will die
    White bird must fly

    I've been listening to this song in my head since I watched Ed's video the other day. It's just the right mood for me today.

    Blue, Red, & Grey

    Some people seem so obsessed with the morning
    Get up early just to see the sun rise
    Some people like it more when there's fire in the sky
    Worship the sun when it's high
    Some people go for those sultry evenings
    Sipping cocktails in the blue, red and grey

    But I like every minute of the day

    I like every second, so long as you are on my mind
    Every moment has its special charm
    It's alright when you're around, rain or shine

    I know a crowd who only live after midnight
    Their faces always seem so pale
    And then there's friends of mine who must have sunlight
    They say a suntan never fails
    I know a man who works the night shift
    He's lucky to get a job and some pay

    And I like every minute of the day

    I dig every second
    I can laugh in the snow and rain
    I get a buzz from being cold and wet
    The pleasure seems to balance out the pain

    And so you see that I'm completely crazy
    I even shun the south of France
    The people on the hill, they say I'm lazy
    But when they sleep, I sing and dance
    Some people have to have the sutlry evenings
    Cocktails in the blue, red and grey

    But I like every minute of the day

    I like every minute of the day

    Jesus died for somebody's sins but not mine
    Meltin' in a pot of thieves
    Wild card up my sleeve
    Thick heart of stone
    My sins my own
    They belong to me, me

    People say "beware!"
    But I don't care
    The words are just
    Rules and regulations to me, me

    I-I walk in a room, you know I look so proud
    I'm movin' in this here atmosphere, well, anything's allowed
    And I go to this here party and I just get bored
    Until I look out the window, see a sweet young thing
    Humpin' on the parking meter, leanin' on the parking meter
    Oh, she looks so good, oh, she looks so fine
    And I got this crazy feeling and then I'm gonna ah-ah make her mine
    Ooh I'll put my spell on her

    Here she comes
    Walkin' down the street
    Here she comes
    Comin' through my door
    Here she comes
    Crawlin' up my stair
    Here she comes
    Waltzin' through the hall
    In a pretty red dress
    And oh, she looks so good, oh, she looks so fine
    And I got this crazy feeling that I'm gonna ah-ah make her mine

    And then I hear this knockin' on my door
    Hear this knockin' on my door
    And I look up into the big tower clock
    And say, "oh my God here's midnight!"
    And my baby is walkin' through the door
    Leanin' on my couch she whispers to me and I take the big plunge
    And oh, she was so good and oh, she was so fine
    And I'm gonna tell the world that I just ah-ah made her mine

    And I said darling, tell me your name, she told me her name
    She whispered to me, she told me her name
    And her name is, and her name is, and her name is, and her name is G-L-O-R-I-A
    G-L-O-R-I-A Gloria G-L-O-R-I-A Gloria
    G-L-O-R-I-A Gloria G-L-O-R-I-A Gloria

    I was at the stadium
    There were twenty thousand girls called their names out to me
    Marie and Ruth but to tell you the truth
    I didn't hear them I didn't see
    I let my eyes rise to the big tower clock
    And I heard those bells chimin' in my heart
    Going ding dong ding dong ding dong ding dong.
    Ding dong ding dong ding dong ding dong
    Counting the time, then you came to my room
    And you whispered to me and we took the big plunge
    And oh. you were so good, oh, you were so fine
    And I gotta tell the world that I make her mine make her mine
    Make her mine make her mine make her mine make her mine

    G-L-O-R-I-A Gloria G-L-O-R-I-A Gloria G-L-O-R-I-A Gloria,
    G-L-O-R-I-A Gloria

    And the tower bells chime, "ding dong" they chime
    They're singing, "Jesus died for somebody's sins but not mine."

    he waits for her to understand
    but she won't understand at all
    she waits all night for him to call
    but he won't call anymore
    he waits to hear her say
    forgive
    but she just drops her pearl-black eyes
    and prays to hear him say
    i love you
    but he tells no more lies

    he waits for her to sympathize
    but she won't sympathize at all
    she waits all night to feel his kiss
    but always wakes alone
    he waits to hear her say
    forget
    but she just hangs her head in pain
    and prays to hear him say
    no more
    i'll never leave again

    how did we get this far apart?
    we used to be so close together
    how did we get this far apart?
    i thought this love would last forever

    he waits for her to understand
    but she won't understand at all
    she waits all night for him to call
    but we won't call
    he waits to hear her say
    forgive
    but she just drops her pearl-black eyes
    and prays to hear him say
    i love you
    but he tells no more lies

    how did we get this far apart?
    we used to be so close together
    how did we get this far apart?

    i think i've reached that point
    where giving up and going on
    are both the same dead end to me
    are both the same old song

    i think i've reached that point
    where every wish has come true
    and tired disguised oblivion
    is everything i do

    please stop loving me
    please stop loving me
    i am none of these things

    i think i've reached that point
    where all the things you have to say
    and hopes for something more from me
    are just games to pass the time away

    please stop loving me
    please stop loving me
    i am none of these things

    i think i've reached that point
    where every word that you write
    of every blood dark sea
    and every soul black night
    and every dream you dream me in
    and every perfect free from sin
    and burning eyes
    and hearts on fire
    are just the same old song

    please stop loving me
    please stop loving me
    i am none of these things
    i am none of these things

    i am none of these things

    I've been looking for a lover
    Thought I'd find her in a bottle
    God, make me another one
    I'll be feeling this tomorrow
    Lord, forgive me for the things I've done
    I was never meant to hurt no one
    I saw scars upon a broken-hearted lover

    Oh, no, no, don't leave me alone lonely now
    If you loved me how'd you never learn?
    Oh, coloured crimson in my eyes
    One or two could free my mind
    This is how it ends.
    I feel the chemicals burn in my bloodstream
    Fading out again.
    I feel the chemicals burn in my bloodstream
    So tell me when it kicks in

    Well, tell me when it kicks in
    Well, tell me when it kicks in


    All the voices in my mind
    Calling out across the line


    Tell me when it kicks in
    I saw scars upon her
    Tell me when it kicks in
    Broken hearted

    Come with me
    On a journey beneath the skin
    Come with me
    On a journey under the skin
    We will look together
    For the Pan within

    Close your eyes
    Breathe slow we'll begin
    Close your eyes
    Breathe slow and we will begin
    To look together
    For the Pan within

    Swing your hips
    Loose your head, and let it spin
    Swing your hips
    Loose you head, and let it spin
    And we will look together
    For the Pan within

    Close your eyes
    Breathe slow and we will begin
    Close your eyes
    Breathe slow and we will begin
    To look together
    For the Pan within

    Put your face in my window
    Breathe a night full of treasures
    The wind is delicious
    Sweet and wild with the promise of pleasure
    The stars are alive
    And nights like these
    Were born to be
    Sanctified by you and me
    Lovers, thieves, fools and pretenders
    And all we gotta do is surrender

    Come with me
    On a journey under the skin
    Come with me
    On a journey under the skin
    And we will look together
    For the Pan within
    When to be with you
    Is not a sin
    When to be with you, oh just to be with you
    Is not a sin
    We will look together
    For the Pan within

    Forward yesterday
    Makes me wanna stay
    What they said was real
    Makes me wanna steal
    Livin' under house
    Guess I'm livin', I'm a mouse
    All's I gots is time
    Got no meaning, just a rhyme

    Take time with a wounded hand
    'Cause it likes to heal
    Take time with a wounded hand
    'Cause I like to steal
    Take time with a wounded hand
    'Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

    I'm half the man I used to be
    This I feel as the dawn
    It fades to gray
    Well, I'm half the man I used to be
    This I feel as the dawn
    It fades to gray
    Well, I'm half the man I used to be
    This I feel as the dawn
    It fades to gray
    Well, I'm half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be

    Feelin' uninspired
    Think I'll start a fire
    Everybody run
    Bobby's got a gun
    Think you're kinda neat
    Then she tells me I'm a creep
    Friends don't mean a thing
    Guess I'll leave it up to me

    Take time with a wounded hand
    'Cause it likes to heal
    Take time with a wounded hand
    Guess I like to steal
    Take time with a wounded hand
    'Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

    I'm half the man I used to be
    This I feel as the dawn
    It fades to gray
    I'm half the man I used to be
    This I feel as the dawn
    It fades to gray
    I'm half the man I used to be
    This I feel as the dawn
    It fades to gray
    I'm half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be

    Take time with a wounded hand
    'Cause it likes to heal
    Take time with a wounded hand
    Guess I like to steal
    Take time with a wounded hand
    'Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

    I'm half the man I used to be
    This I feel as the dawn
    It fades to gray
    I'm half the man I used to be
    This I feel as the dawn
    It fades to gray
    I'm half the man I used to be

    She told me, "Don't worry about it."
    She told me, "Don't worry no more."
    We both know we can't go without it
    She told me you'll never be alone-oh-oh


    I can't feel my face when I'm with you
    But I love it, but I love it, oh
    I can't feel my face when I'm with you
    But I love it, but I love it, oh

    Look up here, I’m in heaven

    I’ve got scars that can’t be seen

    I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen

    Everybody knows me now



    Look up here, man, I’m in danger

    I’ve got nothing left to lose

    I’m so high it makes my brain whirl

    Dropped my cell phone down below



    Ain’t that just like me



    By the time I got to New York

    I was living like a king

    Then I used up all my money

    I was looking for your ass



    This way or no way

    You know, I’ll be free

    Just like that bluebird

    Now ain’t that just like me



    Oh I’ll be free

    Just like that bluebird

    Oh I’ll be free

    Ain’t that just like me

    i brought you some something close to me
    And left with something new
    I can see through your head
    You haunt my dreams
    But theres nothing to do but believe
    Just believe
    Just breathe
    Another day
    Just believe
    Another day
    Just breathe
    Another day
    Just believe
    Another day
    Just breathe
    I'm used to it by now
    Another day
    Just believe
    Just breathe
    Just believe
    Just breathe
    Lying in my bed
    Staring at the ceiling
    Just breathe
    Another day
    Another day
    Just believe
    Another day
    I' m used to it by now
    I' m used to it by now
    Just breathe
    Just believe
    Just breathe
    Just believe
    Just breathe
    Just believe
    Just believe
    Just breathe
    Just believe
    Another day

    I miss you
    I want you
    I need you
    To hold me
    I can't take
    The distance
    Come close
    No resistance
    I need you now, baby listen
    You're the puzzle piece that I'm missing
    I would do things that have never been done
    To get you close to me
    Why can't you see?
    Why can't you see
    That you should be close to me?
    Close to me
    You should be close to me
    I would do things that have never been done
    To get you close to me
    You make me
    So naked
    My heart pumps
    Anticipating
    I fall from
    The sky down
    If you don't come right now
    Close to me
    You should be close to me
    I would do things that have never been done
    To get you close to me
    I need you now, baby listen
    You're the puzzle piece that I'm missing
    I would do things that have never been done
    To get you close to me

    Too many holes in the crust of the earth
    The planet groans
    Every time it registers another birth

    Into the distance a ribbon of black
    Stretched to the point of no turning back
    A flight of fancy on a windswept field
    Standing alone my senses reeled
    A fatal attraction holding me fast how
    Can I escape this irresistible grasp?

    Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
    Tongue tied and twisted Just an earth bound misfit I

    Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
    Unheeded warnings I thought I thought of everything
    No navigator to find my way home
    Unladened, empty and turned to stone

    A soul in tension that's learning to fly
    Condition grounded but determined to try
    Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
    Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

    Friction lock, set.
    Mixture, rich
    Propellers, fully forward
    Flaps, set, ten degrees
    Engine gauges and suction, check

    Mixture set to maximum percent, recheck
    Flight instruments
    Altimeters, check both
    (Garbled word) - on
    Navigation lights, on
    Strobes, on
    (To tower): Confirm 3-8-Echo ready for departure
    (Tower): Hello again, this is now 129.4
    (To tower): 129.4. It's to go.
    (Tower): You may commence your takeoff, winds over 10 knots.
    (To tower): 3-8-Echo
    Easy on the brakes. Take it easy. it's gonna roll this time.
    Just hand the power gradually, and it

    Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
    My grubby halo, a vapor trail in the empty air,
    Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
    Out of the corner of my watering eye
    A dream unthreatened by the morning light
    Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night

    There's no sensation to compare with this
    Suspended animation, A state of bliss
    Can't keep my mind from the circling skies
    Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

    Hold on to the thread
    The currents will shift
    Glide me towards you
    Know something's left
    And we're all allowed
    to dream of the next
    Oh the next... time we touch..........

    You don't have to stray
    Two oceans away
    Waves roll in my thoughts
    Hold tight the ring...
    The sea will rise...
    Please stand by the shore...

    I will be...
    I will be...
    There once more.........
