Secret Garden by Bruce Springsteen

Posted in Uncategorized by marbleseawrites on August 31, 2010

She’ll let you in her house
If you come knockin late at night
She’ll let you in her mouth
If the words you say are right
If you pay the price
She’ll let you deep inside
But there’s a secret garden she hides

She’ll let you in her car
To go drivin round
Shell let you into the parts of herself
Thatll bring you down
Shell let you in her heart
If you got a hammer and a vise
But into her secret garden, don’t think twice

Youve gone a million miles
How fard you get
To that place where you can’t remember
And you can’t forget

She’ll lead you down a path
Therell be tenderness in the air
She’ll let you come just far enough
So you know she’s really there
She’ll look at you and smile
And her eyes will say
She’s got a secret garden
Where everything you want
Where everything you need
Will always stay
A million miles away

Protest Song by Hugh Laurie

Posted in Uncategorized by marbleseawrites on August 31, 2010

Well, the poor keep getting hungry,
and the rich keep getting fat
Politicians change, but they’re never gonna change that.
Girl, we got the answer, it’s so easy you won’t believe
All we gotta do is…

Well, the winds of war are blowin’, and the tide is comin’ in
Don’t you be hopin’ for the good times, because the good times have already been.
But, girl, we got the answer, it’s so easy you won’t believe
All we gotta do is…

It’s so easy, to see
If only they’d listen, to you and me.
We got to… as fast as we can
We got to… every woman, every man
We got to… time after time
We got to… vodka and lime.

Well, the world is gettin’ weary, and it wants to go to bed
Everybody’s dyin’, except the ones who are already dead.
Girl, we got the answer, starin’ us right in the face
All we gotta do is
All we gotta do is
All we gotta do is..

Grandma by The Moffats

Posted in Uncategorized by marbleseawrites on August 29, 2010

I’ve got a special friend
That I see each day
We like to sit and talk
Sometimes we just play
Do you know who I’m talkin’ about
Gonna let my secret out

Grandma, that’s who Grandma always takes the time
To make this young boy feel so fine
She’s got her special ways
To chase the clouds away
And make the sun come out to shine Grandma
I’m glad that you’re mine

When I head on out to school
She waves goodbye
And of course on Sunday nights
There’s apple pie
I love the stories so
Of the days long ago

Grandma, I love you
Grandma always takes the time
To make this young boy feel so fine
She’s got her special ways
To chase the clouds away
And make the sun come out to shine

Grandma I’m glad that you’re mine
Grandma
I’m glad that you’re mine
Grandma
I’m glad that you’re mine

Build Me Up, Buttercup by The Foundations

Posted in Uncategorized by marbleseawrites on August 28, 2010

Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still
I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin’
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) Buttercup, don’t break my heart
“I’ll be over at ten”, you told me time and again
But you’re late, I wait around and then
I went to the door, I can’t take any more
It’s not you, you let me down again
(Hey, hey, hey!) Baby, baby, try to find
(Hey, hey, hey!) A little time and I’ll make you mine
(Hey, hey, hey!) I’ll be home
I’ll be beside the phone waiting for you
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo
Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still
I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin’
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) Buttercup, don’t break my heart
You were my toy but I could be the boy you adore
If you’d just let me know
Although you’re untrue, I’m attracted to you all the more
Why do I need you so
(Hey, hey, hey!) Baby, baby, try to find
(Hey, hey, hey!) A little time and I’ll make you mine
(Hey, hey, hey!) I’ll be home
I’ll be beside the phone waiting for you
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo
Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still
I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin’
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) Buttercup, don’t break my heart
I need you, more than anyone, baby
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) Buttercup, don’t break my heart

Journey’s End by Clannad

Posted in Uncategorized by marbleseawrites on August 27, 2010

Journey’s End
Blue waves are rolling
Visions in my mind
Of a strange voice calling
Journey’s at an end, journey’s at an end
Journey’s at an end, journey’s at an end

Hear the anchor sinking
Voices ringing clear
Farewell from my kindred
And friends I love so dear, and friends I love so dear
Journey’s at an end, journey’s at an end

Lost streams are fading
They sweep across the vale
And with oceans of meadows
To bring me back again, to bring me back again
Journey’s at an end, journey’s at an end

Long have I traveled
In storm, in the sun, in the rain
And it’s homeward singing
Journey’s at an end, journey’s at an end

Journey’s at an end, journey’s at an end
Journey’s at an end, journey’s at an end

This Is The House by The Eurythmics

Posted in Uncategorized by marbleseawrites on August 25, 2010

Esta es la casa (This is the house)
Este es el cerro (This is the hill)
Esta es la historia (This is the story)
Es algo chiquitito (It’s a little thing)

This is the house
This is the hill
This is the story – it’s a little thing
A lock of hair
An invisible smoke trail
Nothing there but the dust and the rust
oh/oh/oh everything changes

This is your picture (it’s in black and white)
This is the family having a party
There’s a crack in the ceiling
And there’s an open door
Nothing there but the dust and the rust
oh/oh/oh everything changes

Red Shoes by Kate Bush

Posted in Uncategorized by marbleseawrites on August 25, 2010

Oh She Move Like The Diva Do
I Said ‘I’d Love To Dance Like You.’
She Said ‘Just Take Off My Red Shoes
Put Them On And Your Dream’ll Come True
With No Words, With No Song
You Can Dance The Dream With Your Body On
And This Curve, Is Your Smile
And This Cross, Is Your Heart
And This Line, Is Your Path

Oh It’s Gonna Be The Way You Always Thought It Would Be
But It’s Gonna Be No Illusion
Oh It’s Gonna Be The Way You Always Dreamt About It
But It’s Gonna Be Really Happening To Ya
Really Happening To Ya
Really Happening To Ya’

Oh The Minute I Put Them On
I Knew I Had Done Something Wrong
All Her Gifts For The Dance Had Gone
It’s The Red Shoes, They Can’t Stop Dancing, Dancing
And This Curve, Is Your Smile
And This Cross, Is Your Heart
And This Line, Is Your Path

‘Oh It’s Gonna Be The Way You Always Thought It Would Be
But It’s Gonna Be No Illusion
Oh It’s Gonna Be The Way You Always Dreamt About It
But It’s Gonna Be Really Happening To Ya’

She Gotta Dance, She Gotta Dance
And She Can’t Stop ‘Till Them Shoes Come Off
These Shoes Do, A Kind Of Voodoo
They’re Gonna Make Her Dance ‘Till Her Legs Fall Off

Feel Your Hair Come Tumbling Down
Feel Your Feet Start Kissing The Ground
Feel Your Arms Are Opening Out
And See Your Eyes Are Lifted To God
With No Words, With No Song
I’m Gonna Dance The Dream
And Make The Dream Come True
I’m Gonna Dance The Dream
And Make The Dream Come True

She Gotta Dance, She Gotta Dance
And She Can’t Stop ‘Till Them Shoes Come Off
These Shoes Do, A Kind Of Voodoo
They’re Gonna Make Her Dance ‘Till Her Legs Fall Off
Call A Doctor, Call A Priest
They’re Gonna Whip Her Up Like A Helicopter

Really Happening To Ya
Really Happening To Ya

You Gotta Dance….

Wishing For Contentment by Andrew Bird’s Bowl of Fire

Posted in Uncategorized by marbleseawrites on August 23, 2010

Well, you know sometimes
I find myself

Wishing for contentment
Hoping for relentment
Venting my resentment
On the happy few, on the happy few, yeah

Awaiting resolution
And dreams of restitution
But finding retribution
Is just another thing to do

‘Cause you’ve got to keep yourself busy
Visit aunt Lizzy
Just see how she’s been

But when you’re making a late run
Two judgmental matrons retort
See what I mean?

A seeming reprobation
Perhaps, it’s my vocation
Oh, nauseous elation
Comes to mind but fades so soon, ah

Wishing for contentment
Hoping for relentment
Venting my resentment
On the happy few

Yes, I’m awaiting resolution
And dreams of restitution, restitution
Finding retribution
Is just another thing

You’ve got to keep yourself busy
Visit aunt Lizzy
Just see how she’s been

But when you’re making a late run
Two judgmental matrons retort
See what I mean?

A seeming reprobation
Perhaps, it’s my vocation
Oh, nauseous elation
Comes to mind but fades so soon

It fades so soon
It fades so soon

Big Girl (You Are Beautiful) by Mika

Posted in Uncategorized by marbleseawrites on August 22, 2010

Big girl you are beautiful

Walks in to the room
Feels like a big balloon
I said, ‘Hey girls you are beautiful’
Diet coke and a pizza please
Diet coke I’m on my knees
Screaming ‘Big girl you are beautiful’

You take your skinny girls
Feel like I’m gonna die
‘Cause a real woman
Needs a real man here’s why

You take your girl
And multiply her by four
Now a whole lot of woman
Needs a whole lot more

Get yourself to the Butterfly Lounge
Find yourself a big lady
Big boy come on around
And they’ll be calling you baby

No need to fantasize
Since I was in my braces
A watering hole
With the girls around
And curves in all the right places

Big girls you are beautiful
Big girls you are beautiful
Big girls you are beautiful
Big girls you are beautiful

Walks in to the room
Feels like a big balloon
I said, ‘Hey girls you are beautiful’
Diet coke and a pizza please
Diet coke I’m on my knees
Screaming ‘Big girl you are beautiful’

You take your girl
And multiply her by four
Now a whole lot of woman
Needs a whole lot more

Get yourself to the Butterfly Lounge
Find yourself a big lady

And they’ll be calling you baby

No need to fantasize
Since I was in my braces

And curves in all the right places

Big girls you are beautiful
Big girls you are beautiful
Big girls you are beautiful
Big girls you are beautiful

Big girls you are beautiful
Big girls you are beautiful
Big girls you are beautiful
Oh you are beautiful

Let’s Pretend We’re Bunny Rabbits by The Magnetic Fields

Posted in Uncategorized by marbleseawrites on August 22, 2010

If you knew how I long
For you now that you’re gone
You’d grow wings and fly
Home to me
Home tonight
And in the morning sun

Let’s pretend we’re bunny rabbits
Let’s do it all day long
Let abbots, Babbitts and Cabots
Say Mother Nature’s wrong
And when we’ve had a couple’a’beers
We’ll put on bunny suits
I long to nibble your ears
And do as bunnies do

Let’s pretend we’re bunny rabbits
Let’s do it all day long
Rapidly becoming rabid
Singing little rabbit songs
I can keep it up all night
I can keep it up all day
Let’s pretend we’re bunny rabbits
Until we pass away

Let’s pretend we’re bunny rabbits
Until we pass away
