Original Sin (The Shadow)

I’ve been looking for an original sin
One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I’ve done all the old ones
Till they’ve all been done in
Now I’m just looking
And I’m gone with the wind
Endlessly searching for an original sin

You can dance forever
You’ve got a fire in your feet
But will it ever be enough
You know that it’ll never be enough
And you can fly and never land
And never need to sleep
But will it ever be enough
You know that it’ll never be enough
It’s not enough to make the nightmares go away
It’s not enough to make the tears run dry
And who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men today
It’s a city of shadow
It’s a city of lies
It’s a city of secrets
It’s a city of crime

It’ll all be over now
All I wanted was a piece of the night
I never got an equal share
When the stars are out of sight
And the moon is down
The natives are so restless tonight
All I needed was a spot in the light
It never had to get so dark
When the stars are out of sight
And the moon is down
The natives are so restless tonight

I’ve been looking for the ultimate crime
Infinite victims, infinitesimal time
And I’m so, so very guilty for no reason no rhyme
So now I’m just looking and I’m killing some time
Endlessly searching for the ultimate crime

You can lose yourself in pleasure
Till your body’s going numb
But will it ever be enough
You know that it’ll never be enough
You can always take whatever
You conceive of if you want
But will it ever be enough
You know that it’ll never be enough
It’s not enough to make the nightmares go away
It’s not enough to make the tears run dry
And who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men today
It’s a city of shadow
It’s a city of lies
It’s a city of cruelty
It’s a city of crime

It’ll all be over now
All I wanted was a piece of the night
I never got an equal share
When the stars are out of sight
And the moon is down
The natives are so restless tonight
All I needed was a spot in the light
It never had to get so dark
When the stars are out of sight
And the moon is down
The natives are so restless tonight

Now I’m just looking
And I’m gone with the wind
Endlessly searching for an original sin
I’ve been looking for an original sin
One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I’ve done all of the old ones
Till they’ve all been done in
Endlessly searching for an original sin
I’ve been looking for an original sin
One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I’ve done all of the old ones
Till they’ve all been done in
Now I’m just looking
And I’m gone with the wind
Endlessly searching for an original sin

I’m applying for a license to thrill
Going out on the edge, moving in for the kill
And there’ll be hell to pay someday
Put it all on the bill
Cause we’ll always be paying and paying until
We’re beyond expiration with a license to thrill

I’ve been looking for an original sin

Seeing a Robin never fails to make me smile. My mother loved them.

Seeing a Robin never fails to make me smile. My mother loved them.

Estranged

When you’re talkin’ to yourself

And nobody’s home

You can fool yourself

You came in this world alone

(Alone)

So nobody ever told you baby

How it was gonna be

So what’ll happen to you baby

Guess we’ll have to wait and see

One, two

Old at heart but I’m only twenty eight

And I’m much too young

To let love break my heart

Young at heart but it’s getting much too late

To find ourselves so far apart

I don’t know how you’re s’posed to find me lately

An what more could you ask from me

How could you say that I never needed you

When you took everything

Said you took everything from me

Young at heart an it gets so hard to wait

When no one I know can seem to help me now

Old at heart but I musn’t hesitate

If I’m to find my own way out

Still talkin’ to myself

And nobody’s home

(Alone)

So nobody ever told us baby

How it was gonna be

So what’ll happen to us baby

Guess we’ll have to wait and see

When I find out all the reasons

Maybe I’ll find another way

Find another day

With all the changing seasons of my life

Maybe I’ll get it right next time

An now that you’ve been broken down

Got your head out of the clouds

You’re back down on the ground

And you don’t talk so loud

An you don’t walk so proud

Any more, and what for

Well I jumped into the river

Too many times to make it home

I’m out here on my own, an drifting all alone

If it doesn’t show give it time

To read between the lines

'Cause I see the storm getting closer

And the waves they get so high

Seems everything we’ve ever known’s here

Why must it drift away and die

I’ll never find anyone to replace you

Guess I’ll have to make it through, this time - oh this time

Without you

I knew the storm was getting closer

And all my friends said I was high

But everything we’ve ever known’s here

I never wanted it to die

November Rain - Guns ‘N’ Roses

November Rain

When I look into your eyes

I can see a love restrained

But darlin’ when I hold you

Don’t you know I feel the same

'Cause nothin' lasts forever

And we both know hearts can change

And it’s hard to hold a candle

In the cold November rain

We’ve been through this such a long long time

Just tryin’ to kill the pain

But lovers always come and lovers always go

An no one’s really sure who’s lettin’ go today

Walking away

If we could take the time

To lay it on the line

I could rest my head

Just knowin’ that you were mine

All mine

So if you want to love me

Then darlin’ don’t refrain

Or I’ll just end up walkin’

In the cold November rain

Do you need some time…on your own

Do you need some time…all alone

Everybody needs some time…

On their own

Don’t you know you need some time…all alone

I know it’s hard to keep an open heart

When even friends seem out to harm you

But if you could heal a broken heart

Wouldn’t time be out to charm you

Sometimes I need some time…on my

Own

Sometimes I need some time…all alone

Everybody needs some time…

On their own

Don’t you know you need some time…all alone

And when your fears subside

And shadows still remain

I know that you can love me

When there’s no one left to blame

So never mind the darkness

We still can find a way

'Cause nothin' lasts forever

Even cold November rain

Don’t ya think that you need somebody

Don’t ya think that you need someone

Everybody needs somebody

You’re not the only one

You’re not the only one

I Don’t Want To Miss A thing - Aerosmith

I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing

I could stay awake just to hear you breathing

Watch you smile while you are sleeping

While you’re far away and dreaming

I could spend my life in this sweet surrender

I could stay lost in this moment forever

Where every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure

Don’t want to close my eyes

I don’t want to fall asleep

Cause I’d miss you babe

And I don’t want to miss a thing

Cause even when I dream of you

The sweetest dream will never do

I’d still miss you babe

And I don’t want to miss a thing

Lying close to you feeling your heart beating

And I’m wondering what you’re dreaming

Wondering if it’s me you’re seeing

Then I kiss your eyes

And thank God we’re together

I just want to stay with you in this moment forever

Forever and ever

I don’t want to close my eyes

I don’t want to fall asleep

Cause I’d miss you babe

And I don’t want to miss a thing

Cause even when I dream of you

The sweetest dream will never do

I’d still miss you babe

And I don’t want to miss a thing

I don’t want to miss one smile

I don’t want to miss one kiss

I just want to be with you

Right here with you, just like this

I just want to hold you close

Feel your heart so close to mine

And just stay here in this moment

For all the rest of time Yeah yeah yeah

I don’t want to close my eyes

I don’t want to fall asleep

Cause I’d miss you babe

And I don’t want to miss a thing

Cause even when I dream of you

The sweetest dream will never do

I’d still miss you babe

And I don’t want to miss a thing

I Don’t want to close my eyes

I don’t want to fall asleep

Cause I’d miss you babe

And I don’t want to miss a thing

Cause even when I dream of you

The sweetest dream will never do

I’d still miss you babe

And I don’t want to miss a thing

Don’t want to close my eyes

I don’t want to fall asleep

And I don’t want to miss a thing

What If - Kate Winslet

What If

Here I stand alone

With this weight upon my heart

And it will not go away

In my head I keep on looking back

Right back to the start

Wondering what it was that made you change

Well I tried

But I had to draw the line

And still this question keeps on spinning in my mind

What if I had never let you go

Would you be the man I used to know

If I’d stayed

If you’d tried

If we could only turn back time

But I guess we’ll never know

Many roads to take

Some to joy

Some to heart-ache

Anyone can lose their way

And if I said that we could turn it back

Right back to the start

Would you take the chance and make the change

Do you think how it would have been sometimes

Do you pray that I’d never left your side

What if I had never let you go

Would you be the man I used to know

If I’d stayed

If you’d tried

If we could only turn back time

But I guess we’ll never know

If only we could turn the hands of time

If I could take you back would you still be mine

'Cos I tried

But I had to draw the line

And still this question keep on spinning in my mind

What if I had never let you go

Would you be the man I used to know

What if I had never walked away

'Cos I still love you more than I can say

If I’d stayed

If you’d tried

If we could only turn back time

But I guess we’ll never know

We’ll never know
