Killing Me Softly – Roberta Flack

This is an old song, but extremely beautiful and the message of the song is very powerful. A song of powerful human connection!

Killing Me Softly – Roberta Flack

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly
With his song…

ooooo….

I heard he sang a good song
I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him and listen for awhile
And there he was this young boy
A stranger to my eyes…

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly
With his song…

I felt all flushed with fever
Embarrassed by the crowd
I felt he found my letters and read each one out loud
I pray that he would finish
But he just kept right on…

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly
With his song…

He sang as if he knew me
In all my dark despair
And then he looked right through me as if I was not there
And he just kept on singing,
Singing clear and strong…

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly
With his song…

oooooo….la la la la la la…..ooooooooooo…la la laaaaa.la la la laaaaa

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly
With his song…

He was strumming my pain
Yeah he was singing my life
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song…

Wild Horses – Mazzy Star

This is a great song by Rolling Stones, but I love this version by Mazzy Star as well!

Wild Horses – Mazzy Star

Childhood living, is easy to do.
The things that you wanted, I bought them for you.
Graceless lady, you know who I am.
You know I can’t let you, slide through my hands.

And wild horses, couldn’t drag me away.
And wild horses, couldn’t drag me away.

I watched you suffer, a dull aching pain.
Now you decided, to show me the same.
No sweeping exits, or offstage lines.
Can make me feel bitter, or treat you unkind.

And wild horses, couldn’t drag me away.
And wild wild horses, couldn’t drag me away.

(I know, I dreamed you a sin and a lie)

Faith has been broken, tears must be cried.
Let’s do some living, after we die.

And wild horses, couldn’t drag me away.
And wild wild horses, couldn’t drag me away.

And wild wild horses, we’ll ride them someday.
And wild wild horses, we’ll ride them someday.

Before You – Chantal Kreviazuk

This is another sweet Canadian classic from about 1999.

Before You – Chantal Kreviazuk

Baby, before you
Well, I was bad news
In lettin’ me love you
I think I can get through

Oh, baby before you
Well, I was so scared
I was a train wreck waitin’ to happen
On the way to nowhere

And now I think it’s kinda funny that you say you love me
You tell me that I’m crazy then you smile

And now I think I’ll get through the end of the world
And now I think I’ll get through bein’ a girl
Now I think I’ll get through anything
And now I think I’ll get through

Now honey around you
Well, I’m feelin’ so good
‘Cause you picked me up out of the rough
And you polished me up and made me brand new

And baby before you, ho ho
There was just a black hole
Yeah, I was beat down, blacked out
My darling you couldn’t even know

But ever since I met you on a cloudy Monday
I can’t believe how much I love the rain

And now I think I’ll get through the end of the world
And now I think I’ll get through life as a girl
Now I think I’ll get through anything
Now I think I’ll get through

Ever since I met you on a cloudy Monday
I can’t believe how much I love the rain

And now I think I’ll get through the end of the world
And now I think I’ll get through life as a girl
Now I think I’ll get through anything
Now I think I’ll get through

Oh oh, now I think I’ll get through
Oh, now I think I’ll get through
Oh oh, and now I think I’ll get through

And now I think I’ll get through
Oh, and now I think I’ll get through
Oh, and now I think I’ll get through
Oh, and now I think I’ll get through

Will Ye Go Lassie Go – Lark and Spur

This isn’t really a pop song, but I love all types of music and this too beautiful to not share! So I must share with you.  This is Celtic style of music, perhaps Irish or Scottish.

Will Ye Go Lassie Go – Lark and Spur

Oh the summertime is coming
And the trees are sweetly blooming
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather
Will ye go, Lassie go?
Chorus
And we’ll all go together
To pluck wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather
Will ye go, Lassie go?

I will build my love a tower
Near yon’ pure crystal fountain
And on it I will build
All the flowers of the mountain
Will ye go, Lassie go?

If my true love she were gone
I would surely find another
Where wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather
Will ye go, Lassie go?

Your body is a wonderland – John Mayer

A gorgeous artistic creation.  Gotta love it!

Your body is a wonderland – John Mayer

“Your Body Is A Wonderland”

We got the afternoon
You got this room for two
One thing I’ve left to do
Discover me
Discovering you

One mile to every inch of
Your skin like porcelain
One pair of candy lips and
Your bubblegum tongue

And if you want love
We’ll make it
Swim in a deep sea
Of blankets
Take all your big plans
And break ’em
This is bound to be a while

Your body is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder (I’ll use my hands)
Your body is a wonderland

Something ’bout the way the hair falls in your face
I love the shape you take when crawling towards the pillowcase
You tell me where to go and though I might leave to find it
I’ll never let your head hit the bed without my hand behind it

you want love?
We’ll make it
Swim in a deep sea
Of blankets
Take all your big plans
And break ’em
This is bound to be a while

Your body is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder (I’ll use my hands)
Your body is a wonderland
(I’ll never speak again… I’ll use my hands)

Damn baby
You frustrate me
I know you’re mine, all mine, all mine
But you look so good it hurts sometimes

Your body is a wonderland
(I’ll never speak again… I’ll use my hands)
Your body is a wonder (I’ll use my hands)
Your body is a wonderland
(I’ll never speak again… I’ll use my hands)
Your body is a wonderland

Wide Awake – Katy Perry

Wide Awake – Katy Perry

“Wide Awake”

I’m wide awake
I’m wide awake

I’m wide awake
Yeah, I was in the dark
I was falling hard
With an open heart
(I’m wide awake)
How did I read the stars so wrong?
(I’m wide awake)
And now it’s clear to me
That everything you see
Ain’t always what it seems
(I’m wide awake)
Yeah, I was dreaming for so long

[Pre-Chorus:]
I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn’t dive in
Wouldn’t bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
‘Til I woke up on
On the concrete

[Chorus:]
Falling from cloud nine
Crashing from the high
I’m letting go tonight
Yeah, I’m falling from cloud nine

I’m wide awake
Not losing any sleep
I picked up every piece
And landed on my feet
I’m wide awake
Need nothing to complete myself, no

I’m wide awake
Yeah, I am born again
Out of the lion’s den
I don’t have to pretend
And it’s too late
The story’s over now, the end

[Pre-Chorus:]
I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn’t dive in
Wouldn’t bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
‘Til I woke up on
On the concrete

[Chorus:]
Falling from cloud nine (it was out of the blue)
I’m crashing from the high
I’m letting go tonight (yeah, I’m letting you go)
I’m falling from cloud nine

(I’m wide awake)
Thunder rumbling
Castles crumbling
(I’m wide awake)
I am trying to hold on
(I’m wide awake)
God knows that I tried
Seeing the bright side
(I’m wide awake)
I’m not blind anymore…

I’m wide awake
I’m wide awake

[Chorus:]
Yeah, I’m falling from cloud nine (it was out of the blue)
Crashing from the high
You know I’m letting go tonight (yeah, I’m letting you go)
I’m falling from cloud nine

I’m wide awake
I’m wide awake
I’m wide awake
I’m wide awake
I’m wide awake

Where Have All The Good People Gone? – Sam Roberts

Where Have All The Good People Gone? – Sam Roberts

Oh the Milky Way has gone a little sour
The leaves dried and the flower fell away
I’ve been sitting, I’ve been waiting for a sign
Inhuman beings taking up all of my time
Want to leave but I’ve got to stay
And I’m wondering more everyday
Montreal to Hong Kong
Where have all the good people gone?
Traffic jam but I’m on the shoulder
Took ten cops to pull me over
Bangkok to Babylon
Where have all the good people gone?
I haven’t met a friend in a long long while
They don’t check my head but they check my style
The modern world is a cold cold world
And all I meet are cold cold girls
Wanna leave but I got to stay
And I’m wondering more every day
Montreal to Hong Kong
Where have all the good people gone?
Traffic jam but I’m on the shoulder
Took ten cops to pull me over
Bangkok to Babylon
Where have all the good people gone?
And it’s always the same
We all just turn away
We are stealing from ourselves
We are feeding off ourselves
But we were born in the flames
We need a cool breeze and a summer rain
We are stealing from ourselves
We are feeding off ourselves
Oh the Milky Way has gone a little sour
The leaves dried and the flower fell away
Want to leave but I’ve got to stay
And I’m wondering more everyday
Montreal to Hong Kong
Where have all the good people gone?
Traffic jam but I’m on the shoulder
Took ten cops to pull me over
Bangkok to Babylon
Where have all the good people gone?
Time’s up and we’re running long
Where have all the good people gone?

 

Brother Down – Sam Roberts

Another awesome Canadian artist.  Check out his other songs.  They are really cool too.

Brother Down – Sam Roberts

One life to live but we’re doing it wrong
You see, got my brother down cause it’s nothing to me
Everyone’s saying that it’s wrong to cheat
But there’s no other way to get my life on easy street

Someone else telling you what you’re living for
Been knocking you down, now you’re looking for more
The only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they’re bringing you war
Rich man’s crying cause his money’s time
And poor man’s smiling cause he knows he ain’t blind
There’s a man over there says he’s tougher than me
But i got eyes that can see through fantasy

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by

Take it all back cause it don’t mean nothing
If you give it away and you’re looking for something back
Wake up every morning when there’s nothing there
No reason to die but no reason to care

Someone else telling you what you’re living for
Been knocking you down now you’re looking for more
The only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they’re bringing you war
One life to live but we’re doing it wrong
You see, got my brother down cause it’s nothing to me
Rich man’s crying cause his money’s time
Poor man’s smiling cause he knows he ain’t blind

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by
