Down to the earth I fell
With dripping wings,
Heavy things won't fly
And the sky might catch on fire
And burn the axis of the world
That's why
I prefer a sunless sky
To the glittering and stinging in my eye

Feel so light
This is all I wanna feel tonight
Feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life

Gleaming in the darksea
I'm as light as air
Floating there breathlessly
When the dream dissolves I open up my eyes
I realize that
Everything is shoreless sea
Weightlessness is passing over me

Feel so light
This is all I wanna feel tonight
Feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life

Everything is waves and stars
The universe is resting in my arms

I feel so alive
This is all I wanna feel tonight
I feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life

Joe Jackson is an artist I'm 'rediscovering' at the moment. Liked his hit singles since the 80's, even the ones I didn't know he did, LOL. This one really struck a chord with me.




Sometimes I feel so alive
Sometimes I see so clear
Just like the way we always were
So young and free from fear

I lose my fear of war and dying
And all the clouds just disappear
Only my mirror sees me crying
Each time I lose another year . . .

Wouldnt be a drag to be like you
Settling down and having kids
And telling them what to do
Well Im gonna stay . . .19 forever

We can do magic in these times
Be what we want to be
We'll all be rock n roll stars
Immortal on tv

And if you see me looking tired
Ive just been sleeping through the day
But I got something to keep me wired
So we can dance the night away

Wouldnt it be a drag to be like them
Theyre gonna sell out everything
But I wont get fooled again
Cause Im gonna be . . .19 forever

You better believe it - you know my dream's still alive
You can love it or leave it
But Im never gonna be 35

JJ Lin 林俊傑 - 愛與希望 (Love and Hope)
It's a beautiful song that I just found, while trolling youtube. The artist, JJ Lin, is said to have written this in two days after the China earthquake. I'm already very torn up about the earthquake, and listening to this song brought tears to my eyes.

English Translation

Love and Hope

The ground shakes, the sky suddenly turns black
My heart breaks open too, and a second later
My tears pile up into rivers

But tomorrow will be okay, we will stay strong
Love, let us keep living
and struggling against disasters

When love and hope project sunlight,
And yesterday's tears will evaporate
Don't give up without a fight - we can make more wishes tomorrow
the courage that fills us will be our strength

When love and hope pour warm moonlight,
And look back once more at a home that's enduring
I know that ahead there are more roads for me to cross
I open my window, and am greeted by clear skies

You know it's funny but lately this has been stuck in my head, can't entirely say why.







COMPLETE LYRICS

"The magic of believing is this: if we really believe in ourselves, our heart will take us to the highest plateau of personal success. Nothing will stop us as long as we have faith in our hearts."

Itís been a long road - Getting from there to here.
Itís been a long time, but my time is finally near.

And I can feel the change in the wind right now
Nothingís in my way
And theyíre not gonna hold me down no more
No, theyíre not gonna hold me now

Chorus:
Cause I got faith of the heart
Iím going where my heart will take me
I got faith to believe.  I can do anything.
I got strength of the soul
And no oneís gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star.  I got faith.  Faith of the heart.

Itís been a long night, trying to find my way.
Been through the darkness now I finally have my day.

And I will see my dream come alive at last
I will touch the sky
And theyíre not gonna hold me down no more
No, theyíre not gonna change my mind
Chorus

Iíve known a wind so cold.  Iíve seen the darkest days.
But now the winds I feel are only winds of change.
Iíve been through the fire and Iíve been through the rain.
But Iíll be fine
Chorus

ĎCause I got faith of the heart
Iím goingí where my heart will take me
I got faith to believe
And no oneís gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star.  I got faith - faith of the heart.
Itís been a long road

Because I'm lonely.

Stan Ridgway - Walkin' Home Alone

Now there's last sunday's paper
Crumpled up and rollin' down the street
Away
And there's a piece of gum
Just waitin' for a ride on someone's feet
Today

And tonight I'll be walkin' home alone

Now, there's a million things I said
And twice as many that I didn't say
Yay-ay
And I remember an afternoon
A broken coffee cup, and some Broadway tune
And I shook her hand
And I said okay

And now as I stroll by some skinny dog
Left outside without a bone
Tonight, I'll be walkin' home alone

And tonight I'll be walkin' home alone

And ain't it funny how one afternoon
Can make two people stop and say
That all the time they spent together
Didn't really mean that much anyway... no, not much.
Just a sinkful of dirty dishes
And a picture in a drawer
And a hairbrush on the table
And a hole punched in a door
And if she were here right now
I'd tell her things I never told her before

So now I hear a clock and I get up fast
Draw the curtain on a brand new day
I can't wait to get this cast off
The telephone's deadĖĖI guess they turned it off today
Turn the key on the mailbox slot
Lookin' for a letter, but bills is all I've got
And even the cat she left me with
Is goin' out with someone else

So put another quarter in the jukebox, Pete
But don't play that one with the sad trombone
'Cause tonight, I'll be walkin' home alone
And tonight, I'll be walkin' home alone
All alone
Walkin' home
All alone.

I'm the life of the party, I'm always smiling
On the surface I'm as happy as can be
And I don't watch the news and I don't read the papers
And I don't like chicken soup for the soul

Do you wanna share my apple pie?
I don't understand why people cry
Try to just all get along
Everybody, come on

When things get heavy I'll change the subject
And I'll talk about ice cream and teddy bears
Everytime you tell me about your problems
I get rigid and scared and I shut off

Do you wanna share my apple pie?
I don't understand why people cry
Try to just all get along
Everybody, come on

I've never been sad
'Cause of lack of emotion I'm very, very glad
I've never been real
'Cause my armour means I never have to feel

Do you wanna share my apple pie?
I don't understand why people cry
Try to just all get along
Everybody, come on

I don't dig confrontation, I keep my mouth shut
But I lie to save my own ass
People talk of politics and people talk of war
And I don't know why they're so upset
Uh-uh

Do you wanna share my apple pie?
I don't understand why people cry
Try to just all get along
Everybody, come on

Everybody, come on
Everybody, come on

- The Bastard Fairies Apple Pie
