Post lyrics of any song you'd like! Doesn't even have to be the entier song, either.

Solsbury Hill
by Peter Gabriel

Climbing up on Solsbury hill,
I could see the city light.
Wind was blowing; time stood still.
Eagle flew out of the night.
He was something to observe.
Came in close; I heard a voice.
Standing, stretching every nerve,
Had to listen; had no choice.
I did not believe the information,
I just had to trust imagination.
My heart going boom, boom, boom,
"Son," he said, "grab your things,
I've come to take you home."
~//~
To keep in silence, I resigned.
My friends would think I was a nut.
Turning water into wine,
Open doors would soon be shut.
So I went from day to day,
Though my life was in a rut.
'Till I thought of what I'd say,
Which connection I should cut.
I was feeling part of the scenery.
I walked right out of the machinery.
My heart going boom, boom, boom,
"Hey," he said, "grab your things,
I've come to take you home."
~//~
When illusion spin her net,
I'm never where I wanna be,
And Liberty, she pirouette,
When I think that I am free.
Watch my empty silhouettes,
Who close their eyes, but still can see.
No one taught them etiquette.
I will show another me.
Today, I don't need a replacement.
I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant,
My heart going boom, boom, boom,
"Hey," I said, "you can keep my things,
They've come to take me home."
~//~


Just beautiful. Absolutely poetic and moving.

There Once Was a Pirate from the Off-Broadway version of Spring Awakening.

There once was a pirate
Who put out to sea
His mates all around him
No maiden on his knee
Oh sail for a little
A little little litte
Oh sail for a little
Til she finds him

There once was a maiden
Who wandered the mead
To gather blue violets
Her mama would need
A wail through the willows
All hollow through the willows
She’ll wail through the willows
‘Til she finds him

The sea was so violent
The crew went below
They begged him to join them
But he would not go
Oh sail a little little
For just a little little
Oh sail for a little
‘Til she finds him

Her heart was so laden
She fell by a tree
Sang of some pirate
Who haunted the sea
A wail through the willows
All hollow through the willows
She’ll wail through the willows
‘Til she finds him

A wail through the willows
(sail for a little)
All hollow through the willows
(the willow willows)
She’ll wail through the willows
(sail for a little)
‘Til she finds him

He’ll sail for a little
A little little litte
He’ll sail for a little
‘Til she finds him

He’ll sail for a little ‘til she finds him.



This has to be one of the most haunting songs performed on stage. Because it was rather disjointed and a profunity overload to the audience, I can see why it was replaced with "The Guilty Ones" when Spring Awakening was transported to Broadway. Still, part of me wishes that they somehow kept it.


Ahhh, I think I see now. Pirates go searching for gold and glory. The rebellious Melchoir dreamed of the glory of showing people the world that he set aside the welfare of his innocent friend Wendla (the maiden). Basically the song foreshadows the ending of the play when the revelation comes to Melchoir that as he indulges in glory and rebellion, he will end up hurting his friend and his spiritual needs.

U2 - With Or Without You

See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you

Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised, she's got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you
With or without you

Come Together
by The Beatles
Written by John Lennon

Shoot me!
Shoot me!
Shoot me!
Shoot me!

Here come ol' flattop, he come groovin' up slowly
He got joo-joo eyeball, he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker; he just do what he please

Shoot me!
Shoot me!
Shoot me!
Shoot me!

He wear no shoeshine, he got toe-jam football
He got monkey finger, he shoot Coca-Cola
He say, "I know you, and you know me."
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free.

Come together!
Right now
Over me.

Shoot me!
Shoot me!
Shoot me!

He bag production, he got walrus gumboot
He got Ono sideboard, he one spinal cracker
He got feet down below his knee
Hold you in his armchair, you can feel his disease.

Come together!
Right now
Over me.

Shoot me!
ALRIGHT!

He roller-coaster, he got early warning
He got Muddy Water, he got mojo filter
He say, "One and one and one is three."
Got to be good lookin' 'cause he's so hard to see.

Come together!
Right now
Over me.

Shoot me!
Shoot me!
Shoot me!

Come together!
Come together!
Come together, yeeeah!
Come together, yeeeah!

Off The Wall ~ Michael Jackson

When the world is on your shoulder
Gotta straighten up your act and boogie down
If you can't hang with the feeling
Then there ain't no room for you this part of town
'Cause we're the party people night and day
Livin' crazy that's the only way

So tonight gotta leave that nine to five upon the shelf
And just enjoy yourself
Groove, let the madness in the music get to you
Life ain't so bad at all
If you live it off the wall
Life ain't so bad at all (live life off the wall)
Live your life off the wall (live it off the wall)

You can shout out all you want to
'Cause there ain't no sin in folks all getting loud
If you take the chance and do it
Then there ain't no one who's gonna put you down
'Cause we're the party people night and day
Livin' crazy that's the only way

So tonight gotta leave that nine to five upon the shelf
And just enjoy yourself
C'mon and groove, and let the madness in the music get to you
Life ain't so bad at all
If you live it off the wall
Life ain't so bad at all (live life off the wall)
Live your life off the wall (live it off the wall)


Do what you want to do
There ain't no rules it's up to you (ain't no rules it's all up to you)
It's time to come alive
And party on right through the night (all right)

Gotta hide your inhibitions
Gotta let that fool loose deep inside your soul
Want to see an exhibition
Better do it now before you get to old
'Cause we're the party people night and day
Livin' crazy that's the only way


So tonight gotta leave that nine to five upon the shelf
And just enjoy yourself
C'mon and groove (yeah) let the madness in the music get to you
Life ain't so bad at all
If you live it off the wall
Life ain't so bad at all (live life off the wall)
Live your life off the wall (live it off the wall)


So tonight gotta leave that nine to five upon the shelf
And just enjoy yourself
C'mon and groove (yeah) let the madness in the music get to you
Life ain't so bad at all
If you live it off the wall
Life ain't so bad at all (live life off the wall)
Live your life off the wall (live it off the wall)
