The Lyric Game!

The rules are simple! I will kick us off with a song. The following poster will post lyrics with one word in common with my song. And so on.

For example:

My post:
Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
Over the fields we go
Laughing all the way!

Your post:
Well the weather outside is frightful
And inside it’s so delightful
So as long as we’ve no place to go
Let it snow Let it snow Let it snow!

With snow being the common word. Bold the word that is common to the previous post.

Creativity is a plus for this game. Do try to stay away from common words like “is”. Add the artist and title to your post so that we can look up artists we haven’t heard of and whatnot.

And…that’s it. Remember, you’re posting lyrics with one word in common with the –previous- post and bolding that common word.

So let’s begin!

One by one, the guests arrive
The guests are coming through
The open-hearted many
The broken-hearted few
And no one knows where the night is going
And no one knows why the wine is flowing
Oh love I need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
Oh . . . I need you now
And those who dance, begin to dance
Those who weep begin
And "Welcome, welcome" cries a voice
"Let all my guests come in."
And no one knows where the night is going ...

Heartbreaker~ Pat Benatar

Your love is like a tidal wave, spinning over my head
Drownin' me in your promises, better left unsaid
You're the right kind of sinner, to release my inner fantasy
The invincible winner, and you know that you were born to be

You're a Heartbreaker
Dream maker, love taker
Don't you mess around with me
You're a heartbreaker
Dream maker, love taker
Don't you mess around... no no no

Your love has set my soul on fire, burnin' out of control
You taught me the ways of desire, now its takin' its toll
You're the right kind of sinner, to release my inner fantasy
The invincible winner, and you know that you were born to be

You're a heartbreaker
Dream maker, love taker
Don't you mess around with me
You're a heartbreaker
Dream maker, love taker
Don't you mess around... no no no

You're the right kind of sinner, to release my inner fantasy
The invincible winner, and you know that you were born to be

You're a heartbreaker

Daydream Believer~The Monkees

Oh, I could hide ’neath the wings
Of the bluebird as she sings.
The six o’clock alarm would never ring.
Whoops it’s ringing and I rise,
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes.
My shavin’ razor’s cold and it stings.

Cheer up, sleepy jean.
Oh, what can it mean.
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen.

You once thought of me
As a white knight on a steed.
Now you know how happy I can be.
Oh, and our good times starts and end
Without dollar one to spend.
But how much, baby, do we really need.

Cheer up, sleepy jean.
Oh, what can it mean.
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen.
Cheer up, sleepy jean.
Oh, what can it mean.
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen.

[instrumental interlude]

Cheer up, sleepy jean.
Oh, what can it mean.
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen.

Title: Her Black Wings


Blackest of the black
Darker than night
Come to me my bleeding light
See she comes
She comes now
Enter oblivion

Here she is
Harder than life
In my arms
See she there
Entwined w/ love
Unclean she is

And she comes down to me
And she offers me sleep
Under her black wings

See she comes
On the eve of dusk
In another form
W/a scent of rain upon her neck
She brings the lust
Supernatural
Ceasing never
On and
On and
On

Her stride is such
Mortals freeze
When she walks past
And she comes down to me
And she offers me sleep
Under her black wings

See she comes
Blacker than pitch
Have to make this fallen bitch
All i want
All i crave
Demoness calls
The bitch is come
For those who wait
Cross the breach in hell
See she is
Bedeviled with breasts

Enchantment on legs
And she comes down to me
And she offers me sleep
Under her black wings

Paint it Black~Rolling Stones

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
I see a line of cars and they’re all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born baby it just happens ev’ry day
I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and it has been painted black
Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the facts
It’s not easy facin’ up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the settin’ sun
My love will laugh with me before the mornin’ comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
Hmm, hmm, hmm,...
I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black
Yeah!

Did I Shave my Legs for This~Deena Carter


Flowers and wine is what I thought I would find
When I came home from working tonight
Well now here I stand, over this frying pan
And you want a cold one again

I bought these new heels, did my nails
Had my hair done just right
I thought this new dress was a sure bet
For romance tonight
Well it's perfectly clear,between the TV and beer
I won't get so much as a kiss
As I head for the door I turn around to be sure
Did I shave my legs for this?

Now when we first met you promised you'd get
A house on a hill with a pool
Well this trailer stays wet and were swimmin' in debt
And you want me to go back to school

I bought these new heels,did my nails
Had my hair done just right
I thought this new dress was a sure bet
For romance tonight
Well it's perfectly clear,between the TV and beer
I won't get so much as a kiss
As I head for the door I turn around to be sure
Did I shave my legs for this?
Darlin did I shave my legs for this?

Kiss me Deadly~Lita Ford




I went to a party last Saturday night
I didn't get laid, I got in a fight,
Uh, huh
It ain't no big thing
Late for my job and the traffic was bad
Had to borrow ten bucks from my old man,
Uh, huh
It ain't no big thing
I went to a party last Saturday night
I told you that story, I'd be alright
Uh, huh
It ain't no big thing
But I know what I like
I know I like dancin' with you
And I know what you like
I know you like dancin' with me
Yeah, yeah
Kiss me once
Kiss me twice
C'mon pretty baby, kiss me deadly
Had a few beers, gettin' high
Sittin', watchin' the time go by,
Uh, huh

Nothin' to eat and no TV
Lookin' in the mirror don't get it for me
Uh, huh
It ain't no big thing
But I know what I like
I know I like dancin' with you
And I know what you like
I know you like dancin' with me
Oh, yeah
Kiss me once
Kiss me twice

Saturday in the park

Saturday in the park
I think it was the fourth of july
Saturday in the park
I think it was the fourth of july
People dancing, people laughing
A man selling ice cream
Singing italian songs
(????)
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I’ve been waiting such a long time
For Saturday

Saturday in the park
You’d think it was the fourth of july
Saturday in the park
You’d think it was the fourth of july
People talking, really smiling
A man playing guitar
Singing for us all
Will you help him change the world
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I’ve been waiting such a long time
For today

Slow motion riders fly the colors of the day
A bronze man still can tell stories his own way
Listen children all is not lost
All is not lost

Funny days in the park
Every day’s the fourth of july
Funny days in the park
Every day’s the fourth of july
People reaching, people touching
A real celebration
Waiting for us all
If we want it, really want it
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I’ve been waiting such a long time
For the day

The Beatles
Across the Universe

Words are flying out like
endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass
They slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
are drifting thorough my open mind
Possessing and caressing me

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light which
dance before me like a million eyes
That call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a
restless wind inside a letter box
they tumble blindly as
they make their way across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of life
are ringing through my open ears
exciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which
shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

LOL, nice choice, Veri. Total suprise! y

Broken - Seether

I wanted you to know I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph; I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

‘cause I’m broken when I’m open
And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
‘cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel light when you’re gone away

The worst is over now and we can breathe again
I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away
There’s so much left to learn, and no one left to fight
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

‘cause I’m broken when I’m open
And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
‘cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away

‘cause I’m broken when I’m open
And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
‘cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel light when you’re gone away

Hope life's been good to you
since you've been gone
I'm doin' fine now I've finally moved on
It's not so bad I'm not that sad

I'm not surprised just how well I survived
I'm over the worst, and I feel so alive
I can't complain I'm free again

Chorus:
And it only hurts when I'm breathing
My heart only breaks when it's beating
My dreams only die when I'm dreaming
So, I hold my breath to forget

Don't think I'm lyin' 'round cryin' at night
There's no need to worry, I'm really all right
I've never looked back as a matter of fact

Repeat Chorus

It only hurts when I breathe

Mmm, no, I've never looked back
as a matter fact

Repeat Chorus

Hurts when I'm breathing
Breaks when it's beating
Die when I'm dreaming
It only hurts when I breathe

Blondie - Dreaming

When I met you in the restaurant
You could tell I was no debutante
You asked me what's my pleasure
A movie or a measure?
I'll have a cup of tea and tell you of my dreaming
Dreaming is free
I don't want to live on charity
Pleasure's real or is it fantasy?
Reel to reel is living rarity
People stop and stare at me We just walk on by - we just keep on dreaming
Feet feet, walking a two mile
Meet meet, meet me at the turnstile
I never met him, I'll never forget him

Dream dream, even for a little while
Dream dream, filling up an idle hour
Fade away, radiate

I sit by and watch the river flow
I sit by and watch the traffic go
Imagine something of your very own
Something you can have and hold

I'd build a road in gold just to have some dreaming
Dreaming is free
Dreaming
Dreaming is free
Dreaming
Dreaming is free

Song: These Boots Are Made For Walking

Lyrics :

Are you ready boots? Start walking. Let’s go.

You keep saying you got something for me. Well officer, I don’t mind to say you do. Now you’re looking right where I thought you’d be looking. Legs come handy when laws in front of you.

Chorus:

These boots are made for walking, that’s just what they’ll do. One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you.

You believe you stopped me for a reason. And I’m pretending my bending’s just for fun. You keep playing where I got you playing, yeah; these double-d initials work to run

Chorus

I’m the girl with the good ol’ boys; don’t mean you no harm, just have my way with hazard county charm. Ain’t a crime in having a little fun.

Southern stride, I got my sexy eyes, where my boots at, ha.

Strut yourself, come on, hey ya’ll come on, come see something, uh huh, uh huh, can’t touch, can I get a hand clap, for the way I work my back.

Tick tock, all around the clock, drop it, push ya tush like that, can I get a Sooey, can I get a Yee-haw!

You keep thinking what you shouldn’t be thinking. Another two buttons down till you’re kissing the ground. I’m a gonna send you back home baby crying. But Uncle Jessie he sure is gonna be proud.

Chorus x2

Come on boots! Start walking. Come on ladies! Hey ya’ll come on, come see something, uh huh, uh huh, can’t touch, can I get a hand clap, for the way I work my back.

Tick tock all around the clock, drop it, push ya tush, like that, can I get a Sooey, can I get a Yee-haw!

Come on Willie! Ah yeah……………ow!

Crowd: Sooey!

Jessica Simpson: Yee-haw!

Crowd: Yee-haw!

Jessica Simpson: Willie Nelson everybody!

Let’s go home, boys. Ohh…Sooey!…Yee-haw!…Ohh…ha, ha, ha.

Bridge over troubled Waters - Simon and Garfunkel

When you’re weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
I’m on your side. when times get rough
And friends just can’t be found,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

When you’re down and out,
When you’re on the street,
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you.
I’ll take your part.
When darkness comes
And pains is all around,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

Sail on silvergirl,
Sail on by.
Your time has come to shine.
All your dreams are on their way.
See how they shine.
If you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.

Give me a word
Give me a sign
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find


Lay me on the ground
Fly me in the sky
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find
Oh, heaven let your light shine down

Love is in the water
Love is in the air
Show me where to go
Tell me will love be there
Teach me how to speak
Teach me how to share
Teach me where to go
Tell me will love be there
Oh, heaven let your light shine down

Heaven Can Wait - Meatloaf

Heaven can wait
And a band of angels wrapped up in my heart
Will take me through the lonely night
Through the cold of the day
And I know
I know
Heaven can wait
And all the gods come down here just to sing for me
And the melody’s gonna make me fly
Without pain
Without fear
Give me all of your dreams
And let me go along on your way
Give me all of your prayers to sing
And I’ll turn the night into the skylight of day
I got a taste of paradise
I’m never gonna let it slip away
I got a taste of paradise
It’s all I really need to make me stay --
Just like a child again

Heaven can wait
And all I got is time until the end of time
I won’t look back
I won’t look back
Let the altars shine

And I know that I’ve been released
But I don’t know to where
And nobody’s gonna tell me know
And I don’t really care
No no no
I got a taste of paradise
That’s all I really need to make me stay
I got a taste of paradise
If I had it any sooner you know
You know I never would have run away from my home

Heaven can wait
And all I got is time until the end of time
I won’t look back
I won’t look back
Let the altars shine

Heaven can wait
Heaven can wait
I won’t look back
I won’t look back
Let the altars shine
Let the altars shine

Heart - These Dreams

Spare a little candle
save some light for me.
Figures up ahead
moving in the trees.
White skin in linen
perfume on my wrist.
And the full moon that hangs over these dreams in the mist.

These dreams go on when I close my eyes

Every second of the night I live another life.
These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside

Every moment I'm awake
the further I'm away.

Is it cloak-and-dagger
could it be spring or fall?
I walk without a cut through a stained glass wall.
Weaker in my eyeside
the candle in my grip

And words that have no form are falling from my lips.

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
. . .

There's something out there I can't resist.
I need to hide away from the pain -
There's something out there I can't resist.

The sweetest song is silence that I've ever heard.
Funny
how your feet in dreams never touch the earth.
In a wood full of princes freedom is a kiss

But the prince hides his face from dreams in the mist.

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
. . .
These dreams go on when I close my eyes
. . .

Depressing song inc!

Elliott Smith
King's Crossing

The King's crossing was the main attraction
Dominoes falling in a chain reaction
The scraping subject ruled by fear told me
Whiskey works better than beer
The judge is on vinyl, decisions are final
And nobody gets a reprieve
And every wave is tidal
If you hang around you're going to get wet
I can't prepare for death any more than I already have
All you can do now is watch the shells
The game looks easy that's why it sells
Frustrated fireworks inside your head
Are going to stand and deliver talk instead
The method acting that pays my bills
Keeps the fat man feeding in Beverly Hills
I got a heavy metal mouth, it hurls obscenity
And I get my check from the trash treasury
Because I took my own insides out
It don't matter cause I have no sex life
And all I wanna do now is inject my ex-wife
I've seen the movie
And I know what happens
It's Christmas time
And the needles on the tree
A skinny Santa is bringing something to me
His voice is overwhelming
But his speech is slurred
And I only understand every other word
Open your parachute and grab your gun
Falling down like an omen, a setting sun
Read the part and we turn out fine
It's a hell of a role if you can keep it alive
But I don't care if I fuck up
I'm going on a date
With a rich white lady
Ain't life great?
Gi'me one good reason not to do it
This is the place where time reverses
And dead men talk to all the pretty nurses
Instruments shine on a silver tray
Don't let me get carried away
Don't let me get carried away
Don't let me be carried away
