Continuing with the Dylan and Don't Think Twice theme (a fine choice Penny Lane a-hard-days-night-george-10 )

So looong honey babe,
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
Goodbye is too good a word babe,
So I'll just say fare thee well,
I ain't saying you treated me unkind,
You could of done better but,
I don't mind,
You just kind of wasted my,
Precious time,
But don't think twice, it's alright

He truly does have a beautiful voice.

"Play the game, fight the fight

But whats the point on a beautiful night"

Paul McCartney  - We All Stand Together.

Criminally slated as a piece of embarrasing dirge by the masses who just dont get what it is. George Martin scored some beautiful orchestral work for it.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Twenty-three, when did we become grown?
I never noticed the seeds of the cynic being sown
Will we stave, will the harvest time reap
Freedom or chains, hope or disdain for the weak?

Twenty-three, when did we become safe?
We pray to feel pleasure and hate when we have to feel pain

Let me see your burn, let me see your bruise
You look just like me
Let me see where you're broken in two

We pretend when we find the end of ourselves
Afraid to be real so we say that we're somebody else
Little ones teach the big to be free
Children are only un-costumed humanity

While we wait here in the dark, love lends a spark
But we can't decide
'Cause coming back to life is harder than hell
Once you have died

Finally, I can see with your eyes
That everyone angry is only just aching inside
Twenty-three, when the sun sets tonight
There's always a reason we just cannot leave it behind"

 

Twenty Three - Kendall Payne

Don’t make your love suffer insecurities, trade the baggage of self to set another one free. ('Paper Skin' - Kendall Payne)

Prospekt's March by Coldplay:

 

Smoke is rising from the houses.

People burying their dead.

I ask somebody what the time is,

But time doesn't matter to them yet.

 

People talking without speaking,

Trying to take what they can get.

I ask you if you remember.

Prospekt, how can I forget?

 

Drums, here it comes.

Don't you wish your life could be as simple

As fish swimming 'round in a barrel

When you've got the gun?

 

Oh, and I'll run. Here it comes.

We're just two little figures in a soup bowl,

Trying to get behind a kind of control,

But I wasn't one.

 

Here I lie on my own in a separate sky.

And here I lie on my own in a separate sky.

I don't wanna die on my own here tonight.

But here I lie on my own in a separate sky.

 

Violet Hill by Coldplay:


Was a long and dark December.

From the rooftops, I remember

There was snow:

White snow.

 

Clearly I remember

From the windows they were watching

While we froze down below.

 

When our future's architectured

By a carnival of idiots on show,

You'd better lie low.

If you love me,

Won't you let me know?

 

Was a long and dark December

When the banks became cathedrals

And the fog became God.

 

Priests clutched onto Bibles,

Hollowed out to fit their rifles.

And the cross was held aloft.

 

Bury me in armor

When I'm dead and hit the ground.

My nerves are poles that unfold.

If you love me,

Won't you let me know?

 

I don't want to be a soldier

With a captain of some sinking ship

Would stow, far below.

So if you love me,

Won't you let me go?

 

I took my love down to Violet Hill.

There we sat in snow.

All that time, she was silent still.

So if you love me,

Won't you let me know?

 

White Winter Hymnal by Fleet Foxes:

 

I was following the pack; I was following their coats

With scarves of red tied 'round their throats

To keep their little heads from falling in the snow,

And I turn 'round and there you go.

And, Michael, you would fall

And turn the white snow red as strawberries in summer time.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8You wanna hear something freaky cool, Sun King? I was debating on whether or not to use both of those songs before I decided on the three I posted. "A Rush Of Blood To The Head" is one of my favorite songs by Coldplay (especially the verse that you chose to use: it is by far the best part of the song). Coldplay just seems to have a knack for writing those beautiful political songs, don't they? And I love the way Dallas threw in the line about taking after his mother in "Grand Optimist". Pure brilliance.

So have some apples for your fantastic taste in music! apple01apple01apple01

From Paul McCartney's favorite song of all time, "God Only Knows" by the Beach Boys:

"If you should ever leave me,
Though life would still go on, believe me,
The world could show nothing to me,
So what good would living do me?
God only knows what I'd be without you."

PEACE OUT!!! a-hard-days-night-george-10

"Happiness hit her like a train on a track
Coming towards her stuck still no turning back
She hid around corners and she hid under beds
She killed it with kisses and from it she fled
With every bubble she sank with her drink
And washed it away down the kitchen sink

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are coming
So you better run

Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
Leave all your love and your longing behind
You can't carry it with you if you want to survive

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?
'Cause here they come

And I never wanted anything from you
Except everything you had and what was left after that too, oh
Happiness hit her like a bullet in the back
Struck from a great height by someone who should know better than that

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?
'Cause here they come

Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
Leave all your love and your longing behind
You can't carry it with you if you want to survive

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?
'Cause here they come

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are coming
So you better run."

-Dog Days are Over, Florence+the Machine
