The first one is from me, because my all-time favorite revenge song always seems to fit someone...

To whom it may concern:

Positively 4th Street

You've got a lotta nerve to say you are my friend
When I was down you just stood there grinnin'
You've got a lotta nerve to say you got a helping hand to lend
You just want to be on the side that's winnin'

You say I let you down, ya know its not like that
If you're so hurt, why then don't you show it?
You say you've lost your faith, but that's not where its at
You have no faith to lose, and you know it.

I know the reason that you talked behind my back
I used to be among the crowd you're in with
Do you take me for such a fool, to think I'd make contact
With the one who tries to hide what she don't know to begin with?

You see me on the street, you always act surprised
You say "how are you?", "good luck", but you don't mean it
When you know as well as me, you'd rather see me paralyzed
Why don't you just come out once and scream it?

No, I do not feel that good when I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief perhaps I'd rob them
And tho I know you're dissatisfied with your position and your place
Don't you understand, its not my problem?

I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment I could be you
Yes, I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is to see you.

--Bob Dylan

The next one is from HereForTheMusic, posted on the "Amazon Refugee Camp?" topic on the R&S forum this morning. Cross-posted by me, with his comment.

"Refugee"

We got somethin', we both know it, we don't talk too much about it
Ain't no real big secret, all the same, somehow we get around it
Listen, it don't really matter to me baby
You believe what you want to believe, you see

You don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)

Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have kicked you around some
Tell me why you want to lay there, revel in your abandon
Honey, it don't make no difference to me baby
Everybody has to fight to be free, you see

[Chorus:]
You don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
No baby you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)

Baby we ain't the first
I'm sure a lot of other lovers been burned
Right now it seems real to you, but it's
One of those things you gotta feel to be true

Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have kicked you around some
Who knows maybe you were kidnapped tied up,
Taken away and held for ransom
Honey, it don't make no difference to me, baby
Everybody has to fight to be free, you see

[Chorus x2]

- Tom Petty

I've had that song in my head since I first saw this thread, had to let it out.

The next one is from Bryan. It was also posted on the "Amazon Refugee Camp?" topic on the R&S forum, to welcome our friend Allan to Aantares (I think).

GARBAGE LYRICS

"All The Good In This Life"

Once when I was a girl
I could have given you a ride for your money
Oh, but how times have changed
Although you do look cute in those red cowboy boots

No, you don't mess around
But you're just a kid, you don't know what it takes

No one can stop you now
Anymore than they can tell the wind not to blow
Who's going to run you now?
With the riders in the dirt back on astelin turf

I can't tell you what to do
You're free as a bird, go do what you've got to do

Don't you worry boy
Life will come and find you
You're going to blow their minds
Show them all a thing or two

Don't you worry boy
Life will come and find you
You're going to blow their minds
Show them all a thing or two

All the good in this life, wish for yourself
All the good in this life, wish for yourself
All the good in this life, wish for yourself
All the good in this life, wish for yourself

Great start, you could keep a thread going with great Dylan lyrics alone. They don't give out Nobel prizes for nothing.

Music,

This thread isn't just for me, or even mainly for me. I actually started it with Bryan in mind because he posts song lyrics so often. Sends them out by email too. Not that he has to post them them here, or that you do either. But if you post them elsewhere I can't guarantee I'm always going to repost them here. I did it today to give you guys the idea of what I'm trying to do here.

I totally agree with you about Bob Dylan.

"Find the River"

Hey now, little speedy head
The read on the speed meter says
You have to go to task in the city
Where people drown and people serve
Don't be shy
Your just deserve
Is only just light years to go


Me, my thoughts are flower strewn
Ocean storm, bayberry moon
I have got to leave to find my way
Watch the road and memorize
This life that pass before my eyes
Nothing is going my way


The ocean is the river's goal
A need to leave the water knows
We're closer now than light years to go


I have got to find the river
Bergamot and Vetiver
Run through my head and fall away
Leave the road and memorize
This life that pass before my eyes
Nothing is going my way


There's no one left to take the lead
But I tell you and you can see
We're closer now than light years to go
Pick up here and chase the ride
The river empties to the tide
Fall into the ocean


The river to the ocean goes
A fortune for the undertow
None of this is going my way
There is nothing left to throw
Of Ginger, lemon, indigo
Coriander stem and rose of hay
Strength and courage overrides
The privileged and weary eyes
Of river poet search naivete
Pick up here and chase the ride
The river empties to the tide
All of this is coming your way


- R.E.M.

"Bridge over Troubled Water"
Simon & Garfunkel

When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all (all)
I'm on your side, oh, 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 (ooo)
I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes
And pain 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 silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh, 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

"Thunder Road"
Bruce Springsteen



The screen door slams, Mary's dress waves
Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
Hey, that's me and I want you only
Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again
Don't run back inside, darling, you know just what I'm here for
So you're scared and you're thinking that maybe we ain't that young anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
You ain't a beauty but, hey, you're alright
Oh, and that's alright with me



You can hide 'neath your covers and study your pain
Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain
Waste your summer praying in vain
For a savior to rise from these streets
Well now, I ain't no hero, that's understood
All the redemption I can offer, girl, is beneath this dirty hood
With a chance to make it good somehow
Hey, what else can we do now?
Except roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair
Well, the night's busting open, these two lanes will take us anywhere
We got one last chance to make it real
To trade in these wings on some wheels
Climb in back, heaven's waiting on down the tracks

Oh oh, come take my hand
We're riding out tonight to case the promised land
Oh oh oh oh, Thunder Road
Oh, Thunder Road, oh, Thunder Road
Lying out there like a killer in the sun
Hey, I know it's late, we can make it if we run
Oh oh oh oh, Thunder Road
Sit tight, take hold, Thunder Road

Well, I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk
And my car's out back if you're ready to take that long walk
From your front porch to my front seat
The door's open but the ride ain't free
And I know you're lonely for words that I ain't spoken
But tonight we'll be free, all the promises'll be broken

There were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away
They haunt this dusty beach road in the skeleton frames of burned-out Chevrolets
They scream your name at night in the street
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn
You hear their engines rolling on
But when you get to the porch, they're gone on the wind
So Mary, climb in
It's a town full of losers, I'm pulling out of here to win

"One"
U2

Is it getting better
Or do you feel the same
Will it make it easier on you now
You got someone to blame
You say...

One love
One life
When it's one need
In the night
One love
We get to share it
Leaves you baby if you
Don't care for it

Did I disappoint you
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Well it's...

Too late
Tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other
One...

Have you come here for forgiveness
Have you come to raise the dead
Have you come here to play Jesus
To the lepers in your head

Did I ask too much
More than a lot
You gave me nothing
Now it's all I got
We're one
But we're not the same
Well we
Hurt each other
Then we do it again
You say
Love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt

One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
Sisters
Brothers
One life
But we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other

One...life

One

"Ripple"
Grateful Dead

If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
Would you hear my voice come through the music
Would you hold it near as it were your own?


It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
Perhaps they're better left unsung
I don't know, don't really care
Let there be songs to fill the air


Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow


Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
If your cup is full may it be again
Let it be known there is a fountain
That was not made by the hands of men


There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go no one may follow
That path is for your steps alone


Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow


You who choose to lead must follow
But if you fall you fall alone
If you should stand then who's to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home

"We Are All Made Of Stars"
Moby

Growing in numbers
Growing in speed
Can't fight the future
Can't fight what I see


People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars


Efforts of lovers
Left in my mind
I sing in the reaches
We'll see what we find


People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars


People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars


Slow slow slow, come come
Someone come come come
Even love is goin' 'round
You can't ignore what is goin' 'round


Slowly rebuilding
I feel it in me
Growing in numbers
Growing in peace


People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars


People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars


People they come together
(People they come together)
People they fall apart
(People they fall apart)
No one can stop us now
(No one can stop us now)
'Cause we are all made of stars
(We are all made of stars)


'Cause we are all made of stars
People they come together
'Cause we are all made of stars
(People they fall apart)
'Cause we are all made of stars
(No one can stop us now)
'Cause we are all made of stars
(We are all made of stars)

"Hummingbird"
Seals & Crofts

Oh, hummingbird
Mankind was waiting for you to come flying along
Heavenly songbird
We were so wrong, we've harmed you
Oh, hummingbird

Lend us your wings
Let us soar in the atmosphere of Abha
Lift us up to the heaven of holiness
Oh, source of our being, oh hummingbird

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away

In you I've found a fragrance
I'll love you 'til I die
I just love you, love you, love you
I don't even know the reason why now

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away

The sweetness of your nectar
Has drawn me like a fly
I just love you, love you, love you
I don't even know the reason why now

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away

Haven't you noticed the days
Somehow keep getting longer?
And the spirit voices whisper in us all

Haven't you noticed the rays?
The spirit sun is stronger
And a new day is dawning for us all

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away

Alas, here comes the gardener
He's come to till the flowers
The drought of understanding
Wisdom, peace and love is ours now

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away

Don't fly away
Don't fly away
Don't fly away

"The Weight"
The Band



I pulled into Nazareth, was feeling 'bout half past dead
I just need some place where I can lay my head
Hey, mister, can you tell me, where a man might find a bed?
He just grinned and shook my hand, "No" was all he said.

Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny, and you put the load right on me

I picked up my bags, I went looking for a place to hide
When I saw old Carmen and the Devil, walking side by side
I said, "Hey, Carmen, c'mon, let's go downtown"
She said, "I gotta go, but my friend can stick around"

Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny, and you put the load right on me



Go down, Miss Moses, ain't nothin' you can say
It's just old Luke, and Luke's waiting on the judgment day
Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Annalee
He said, "Do me a favor, son, won't you stay and keep Annalee company"

Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny, and you put the load right on me

Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog
Said, "I will fix your rag, if you'll take Jack, my dog"
I said, "Wait a minute Chester, you know, I'm a peaceful man"
He said, "That's okay, boy, won't you feed him when you can"

Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny, and you put the load right on me

Catch the cannonball, now to take me down the line
My bag is sinking low, and I do believe it's time
To get back to Miss Fanny, you know she's the only one
Who sent me here, with her regards for everyone

Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny, and you put the load right on me

"Tear Stained Eye"
Son Volt

Walking down Main Street
Getting to know the concrete
Looking for a purpose
From a neon sign


I would meet you anywhere
The western sun meets the air
We'll hit the road
Never looking behind


Can you deny
There's nothing greater
Nothing more than
The traveling hands of time


St. Genevieve can hold back the water
Saints don't bother
With the tear stained eye


Seeing traces
Of the stars that came before
Hitting the pavement
Still asking for more


When the hours don't move along
Worn out wood and familiar songs
To hear your voice is not enough
It's more than a shame


Can you deny
There's nothing greater
Nothing more than
The traveling hands of time


St. Genevieve can hold back the water
Saints don't bother
With the tear stained eye


Like a man said
Rode hard and put away wet
Throw away the bad news
Just put it to rest


If learning is living
And the truth is a state of mind
You'll find it's better
At the end of the line


Can you deny
There's nothing greater
Nothing more than
The traveling hands of time


St. Genevieve can hold back the water
Saints don't bother
With the tear stained eye

As always, for my Partner.

Fountain of Sorrow
(Joan Baez version)

I was looking through some photographs
I found inside your drawer
I was taken by a photograph of you
There were one or two I know that you
Would have liked a little more
But they didn't show your spirit quite as true.
You were turning around to see who was behind you
And I took your childish laughter by surprise
And at the moment that my camera happened to find you
There was just a trace of sorrow in your eyes.

Now the things that I remember seem so distant and so small
Though it hasn't really been that long a time
What I was seeing wasn't really happening at all
Although for a while, our path did seem to climb.
When you see through love's illusions, there lies the danger
And your perfect lover just looks like a perfect fool
So you go running off in search of a perfect stranger
While the loneliness seems to spring from your life
Like a fountain from a pool.

Fountain of sorrow, fountain of light
You've known that hollow sound of your own steps in flight
You've had to hide sometimes, but now you're all right
And it's good to see your smiling face tonight.

Now for you and me it may not be
That hard to reach our dreams
But that magic feeling never seems to last
While the future's there for anyone
To change, still you know it's seems
It would be easier sometimes to change the past.
I'm just one or two years and a couple of changes behind you
In my lessons at love's pain and heartache school
Where if you feel too free and you need something to remind you
There's this loneliness springing up from your life
Like a fountain from a pool

Fountain of sorrow, fountain of light
You've known that hollow sound of your own steps in flight
You've had to hide sometimes but now you're all right
And it's good to see your smiling face tonight.

--Jackson Browne

Dying the eastern sky true red,
the light of signal fire
tells the end of the darkness of solitude.
It's a new guidepost.
Even if you are crushed, again and again,
burn your flame of heart!

Now is the time. It's the time.
This moment right now.
It's the time. It's the time.
Living with love.
[Just a it's the...] Time. It's the time.
I sing for the you of tomorrow.
Now the time has come.

Go for resistance [resistance], resistance [resistance]!
Wow wow wow wow wow.
Our hearts are one.
If you believe in your way,
go on even the way without a path!
Forever [forever], forever [forever].
Wow wow wow wow wow.
In the depths of our heart,
the hot heart is burning.
It is our resistance.

Wow wow wow wow...

As long as life continues,
I will never turn my back to reality.
Today makes tomorrow.
Yes, it's our future. On the way, ah...

Resistance, resistance.
Stand up and shout [shout]
for the justice forever!
If you believe in your way,
go on! The answer is here.
Forever [forever], forever [forever].
Wow wow wow wow wow.
In the depths of our heart,
the hot heart is burning.
Our resistance.
