I go blind – 5440

This is a true Canadian classic and a very powerful song.  It really helped me when I was blind fool in high school!

I go blind – 5440

Everytime I look at you I go blind
Everytime I look at you I go blind
In the morning I get up
And I try to feel alive but I can’t
I don’t know what it is
Something in me just won’t give it a chance
I think it’s just that I feel more confused by the deal
Love has shown me
Little child did you know that there’s light
And it’s gonna shine right through your eyes
What do you think that life is like
Everytime I look at you I go blind
Somewhere over there
There’s a purpose there’s a care for free
In me there’s nobody
No one plan no one stand to be free
I think it’s that because I have seen all the fuss
And it’s no big deal
Hold me hold me
‘Cause I wanna get high and higher
Higher than

Tug of War – Carly Rae Jepsen

This is actually my favorite Carly Rae Jepsen song.  It’s a super easy song on the guitar too. Just A, D, E.  If I was a girl, I’d be playing it!

Tug of War – Carly Rae Jepsen

You seem too good
Too good to be true
You’re holding me stronger
Stronger than I’m used to

Don’t go out with the boys tonight
I won’t sleep a wink
Wondering what you’re doing
Don’t go out with the girls tonight
I will turn to drink
[Album] {Wondering who you’re screwing}
[Radio] Wondering what you’re proving

You seem to good
To good to be true
I’m loving you longer
Longer than I’m used to

Don’t go out with the boys tonight
I won’t sleep a wink
Wondering what you’re doing
I don’t go out with the girls tonight
I will turn to drink
[Album] {Wondering who you’re screwing}
[Radio] Wondering what you’re proving

[2x]
Tug of war
Sweet as sin
I let go
I fell in
Feel the pull
Call your name
I’m alone
Once again

[Album] {You seem, you seem too good
Too good to be true
You’re holding me stronger
Stronger than I’m used to}

Don’t go out with the boys tonight
I won’t sleep a wink
Wondering what you’re doing
Don’t go out with the girls tonight
I will turn to drink
Wondering what you’re proving.

Tug of war
Sweet as sin
I let go
I fell in
Feel the pull
Call your name
I’m alone
Once again

Tug of war (Don’t go out with the boys tonight)
Sweet as sin (You seem too good)
I let go (Too good to be true)
I fell in
Feel the pull (Don’t go out with the girls tonight) (I’m loving you longer)
Call your name (I will turn to drink)
I’m alone
Once again (Longer than I’m used to)

Tug of war (Don’t go out with the boys tonight)
Sweet as sin (You seem too good)
I let go (Too good to be true)
I fell in
Feel the pull (Don’t go out with the girls tonight) (You seem too good)
Call your name (I will turn to drink)
I’m alone
Once again (Too good to be true)

(Tug of war)
(Feel the pull) (Don’t go out with the boys tonight)
(Tug of war)
(Feel the pull)

With a little help from my friends – Beatles

This is one of my favorite Beatles songs because it’s such a happy and fun song to play with my friends, literally.  This is a great song to jam on.

With a little help from my friends – Beatles

What would you think if I sang out of tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song
And I’ll try not to sing out of key
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm gonna try with a little help from my friends

What do I do when my love is away?
(Does it worry you to be alone?)
How do I feel by the end of the day?
(Are you sad because you’re on your own?)
No I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm gonna try with a little help from my friends

(Do you need anybody?)
I need somebody to love
(Could it be anybody?)
I want somebody to love

(Would you believe in a love at first sight?)
Yes I’m certain that it happens all the time
(What do you see when you turn out the light?)
I can’t tell you, but I know it’s mine
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm I get high with a little help from my friends
Oh I’m gonna try with a little help from my friends

(Do you need anybody?)
I just need someone to love
(Could it be anybody?)
I want somebody to love

Oh I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm gonna try with a little help from my friends
Oh I get high with a little help from my friends
Yes I get by with a little help from my friends
With a little help from my friends

Riders on the Storm – Doors

This is older music from the late 60’s.  But wow! What a futuristic sound and did you ever hear a piano sound more like raindrops before?  The Doors have many great songs.  Check them out!

Riders on the Storm – Doors

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we’re born
Into this world we’re thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out on loan
Riders on the storm

There’s a killer on the road
His brain is squirmin’ like a toad
Take a long holiday
Let your children play
If you give this man a ride
Sweet family will die
Killer on the road, yeah

Girl, you gotta love your man
Girl, you gotta love your man
Take him by the hand
Make him understand
The world on you depends
Our life will never end
Gotta love your man, yeah

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we’re born
Into this world we’re thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out on loan.
Riders on the storm

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm

Speed of Sound – Coldplay

I believe Coldplay has been the best music group of the last ten years! So their music is awesome! Enjoy this great track, one of their many wonderful songs.

Speed of Sound – Coldplay

How long before I get in?
Before it starts, before I begin?
How long before you decide?
Before I know what it feels like?
Where To, where do I go?
If you never try, then you’ll never know.
How long do I have to climb,
Up on the side of this mountain of mine?

Look up, I look up at night,
Planets are moving at the speed of light.
Climb up, up in the trees,
every chance that you get,
is a chance you seize.
How long am I gonna stand,
with my head stuck under the sand?
I’ll start before I can stop,
before I see things the right way up.

All that noise, and all that sound,
All those places I got found.
And birds go flying at the speed of sound,
to show you how it all began.
Birds came flying from the underground,
if you could see it then you’d understand?

Ideas that you’ll never find,
All the inventors could never design.
The buildings that you put up,
Japan and China all lit up.
The sign that I couldn’t read,
or a light that I couldn’t see,
some things you have to believe,
but others are puzzles, puzzling me.

All that noise, and all that sound,
All those places I got found.
And birds go flying at the speed of sound,
to show you how it all began.
Birds came flying from the underground,
if you could see it then you’d understand,
ah when you see it then you’ll understand?

All those signs, I knew what they meant.
Some things you can invent.
Some get made, and some get sent,
Ooh?
Birds go flying at the speed of sound,
to show you how it all began.
Birds came flying from the underground,
if you could see it then you’d understand,
ah, when you see it then you’ll understand?

 

Ticket to Ride – Beatles

Ticket to Ride – Beatles

I think I’m gonna be sad,
I think it’s today, yeah
The girl that’s driving me mad
Is going away

She’s got a ticket to ride,
She’s got a ticket to ride,
She’s got a ticket to ride,
But she don’t care

She said that living with me
Is bringing her down yeah
For she would never be free
When I was around

She’s got a ticket to ride,
She’s got a ticket to ride,
She’s got a ticket to ride,
But she don’t care

I don’t know why she’s ridin’ so high,
She ought to think twice,
She ought to do right by me
Before she gets to saying goodbye,
She ought to think twice,
She ought to do right by me
I think I’m gonna be sad,
I think it’s today yeah
The girl that’s driving me mad
Is going away, yeah

She’s got a ticket to ride,

She said that living with me,
Is bringing her down, yeah
For she would never be free
When I was around

Ah, she’s got a ticket to ride,
She’s got a ticket to ride,
She’s got a ticket to ride,
But she don’t care

My baby don’t care, my baby don’t care
My baby don’t care, my baby don’t care
My baby don’t care, my baby don’t care

If I fell – Beatles

One of cutest and sweetest Beatles songs ever!!

If I fell – Beatles

If I fell in love with you
Would you promise to be true
And help me understand
‘Cause I’ve been in love before
And I found that love was more
Than just holding hands

If I give my heart to you
I must be sure
From the very start
That you would love me more than her

If I trust in you oh please
Don’t run and hide
If I love you too oh please
Don’t hurt my pride like her

‘Cause I couldn’t stand the pain
And I would be sad if our new love was in vain

So I hope you see that I
Would love to love you
And that she will cry
When she learns we are two
If I fell in love with you

 

Hard Day’s Night – Beatles

Total Beatles Classic!

Hard Day’s Night – Beatles

It’s been a hard day’s night, and I’ve been working like a dog
It’s been a hard day’s night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright

You know I work all day to get you money to buy you things
And it’s worth it just to hear you say you’re going to give me everything
So why on earth should I moan, ’cause when I get you alone
You know I feel OK

When I’m home everything seems to be right
When I’m home feeling you holding me tight, tight

It’s been a hard day’s night, and I been working like a dog
It’s been a hard day’s night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright, oww

So why on earth should I moan, ’cause when I get you alone
You know I feel OK

When I’m home everything seems to be right
When I’m home feeling you holding me tight, tight

It’s been a hard day’s night, and I been working like a dog
It’s been a hard day’s night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright
You know I feel alright
You know I feel alright
