Song Lyrics

Recommended Posts

It's the intensity in the lyrics and the tunes of the guitars that make this song so special.

----

Strange infatuation seems to grace the evening tide.

I'll take it by your side.

Such imagination seems to help the feeling slide.

I'll take it by your side.

Instant correlation sucks and breeds a pack of lies.

I'll take it by your side.

Oversaturation curls the skin and tans the hide.

I'll take it by your side.

I'm unclean, a libertine

And every time you vent your spleen,

I seem to lose the power of speech,

You're slipping slowly from my reach.

You grow me like an evergreen,

You've never seen the lonely me at all

I...

Take the plan, spin it sideways.

I...

Fall.

Without you, I'm nothing.

Without you, I'm nothing.

Without you, I'm nothing.

Take the plan, spin it sideways.

Without you, I'm nothing at all.

Placebo - Without You I'm Nothing

What is life if you're not there?

Why should I even care?

All alone inside my head

Watch the walls close in instead

I'm not supposed to bring you down

You're not supposed to turn me round

What are dreams if not made real?

How am I supposed to feel?

What's your love without some hate?

Should I act or hesitate?

It's a comfort when you

It's a comfort when you

It's a comfort when you smile

Comfort When You Smile - Puressence

Richard Hawley - Tonight The Streets Are Ours

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eBkrs4YpzI

Do you know why you got feelings in your heart

Don't let fear of me then fool you, what you see sets you apart

And there's nothing here to bind you, it's no way for life to start

Do you know that

Tonight the streets are ours

Tonight the streets are ours

These lights in our eyes, they tell no lies

Those people, they got nothing in their souls

And they make our tvs blind us from our visions and our goals

Oh the trigger of time it tricks you so you have no way to grow

But do you know that

Tonight the streets are ours

Tonight the streets are ours

And these lights in our hearts, they tell no lies

And no one else can haunt me the way that you can haunt me

I need to know you want me, I couldn't be without you

And the light that shines around you

No nothing ever matter more than my darling

But tonight the street are ours

Do you know how to kill loneliness at last

Oh there's some much there to heal dear and make tears things of the past

But do you know that

Tonight the street are ours

This Song demonstrares masterful use of common Poetic devices such as assonance, alliteration, plosives, and I can't even remember the names for many more.
 
 
Lyrics
Grim-faced and forbidding
Their faces closed tight
An angular mass of New Yorkers
 
Pacing in rhythm
Race the oncoming night
They chase through the streets of Manhattan
 
Head-first humanity
Pause at a light
Then flow through the streets of the city 
 
They seem oblivious 
To a soft spring rain 
Like an English rain 
So light, yet endless 
From a leaden sky, yeah
 
The buildings are lost 
In their limitless rise 
My feet catch the pulse 
And the purposeful stride 
 
I feel the sense of possibilities
I feel the wrench of hard realities
The focus is sharp in the city 
------
Wide-angle watcher
On life's ancient tales
Steeped in the history of London
 
Green and Grey washes 
In a wispy white veil
Mist in the streets of Westminster
 
Wistful and weathered
The pride still prevails
Alive in the streets of the city 
 
Are they oblivious 
To this quality? 
A quality 
Of light unique to every city's streets 
 
Pavements may teem 
With intense energy 
But the city is calm 
In this violent sea
 
I feel the sense of possibilities
I feel the wrench of hard realities
The focus is sharp in the city
