In My Time Of Dying





author: James Patrick, John Bonham, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones




In my time of dying


I don't want nobody to mourn


All I want for you to do is


Take my body home




***




Well, well, well


So I can die easy


Well, well, well


Well, well, well


So I can die easy




***




Jesus gonna make up


Jesus gonna make up


Jesus gonna make up my dying bed




***




Meet me, Jesus, meet me


Won't you meet me in the middle of the air


And if these wings should fail me, Lord


Won't you meet me with another pair




***




Well, well, well


So I can die easy


Well, well, well


Well, well, well


So I can die easy




***




Jesus gonna make up


Jesus gonna make up


Jesus gonna make up my dying bed




***




In my time of dying


I don't want nobody to cry


All I want for you to do is


Take me when I die




***




Well, well, well


So I can die easy


Well, well, well


Well, well, well


So I can die easy




***




Jesus gonna make up


Jesus gonna make up


Jesus gonna make up my dying bed









Stardust





author: David Essex




Ah look what they've done to the rock n' roll clown


Ah rock n' roll clown, look he's down on the ground


Well he used to high fly but he crashed out the sky


In a stardust fling, hey rock n' roll king is down




***




Roll on up, won't you come and take a look at me


Roll on up, come one at a time, and see me


See my painted-on grin as a stand up to sing


In a stardust fling, hey rock n' roll king is down




***




But he's the leader of the band


He is a lonely man


Don't you wanna take his hand?



Yes you know you can, can, can




***




Well he used to high fly but he crashed out the sky


In a stardust fling, hey rock n' roll king is down


In a stardust fling, hey rock n' roll king is down


In a stardust fling, hey rock n' roll king is down









I Cast A Lonesome Shadow





author: Lynn Russwurm, Hank Thompson




Every evening when the sun goes down I sit here in my room


And the lamplight shining on me projects my lonely gloom


My counterpart in agony mocks each tear that falls


And I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely, lonely walls




***




He's always by my side at night no matter where I go


He lurks out in the darkness or in the neon's glow


He follows me across the steps and up and down the hall


And I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely, lonely walls




***




I sit and watch the candle and the flicker of the flame


My writhing shadow twists and turns as though it is in pain


I'm trying to escape the memory my heart recalls


And I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely, lonely walls




***




The image of a love I lost and all the things I'd planned


Are as empty as the bottle that I hold in my hand


My soul is buried in the depths of love and life's pitfalls


And I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely, lonely walls


I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely, lonely walls









In My Other World





author: Julee Cruise, Louie Tucci




In my other world


There is no pain


And all my thoughts


Are clouds of happiness




***




In my other world


My heart beats red


There is no gun


Pointed at my head




***




And I don't really want your kiss


My thoughts don't make me cry


My heart's not filled with gray sadness


My ears can't hear you lie




***




I can't even see your face


I've never heard your name


My heart is still, my thoughts are calm


And light has filled this space




***




In my other world


My pain is bliss


I own your soul


I own your kiss




***




In my other world


In my other world









Loverman





author: Nick Cave




There's a devil waiting outside your door


There's a devil waiting outside your door


And he's bucking and braying and pawing at the floor


And he's howling with pain and crawling up the walls


There's a devil waiting outside your door


He's weak with evil and broken by the world


He's shouting your name and he's asking for more


Give him more give him more


There's a devil waiting outside your door


Oh yeah

***




There's a devil crawling along your floor


There's a devil crawling along your floor


With a trembling heart, he's coming through the door


With his straining sex in his jumping paw


Oh yeah


There's a devil crawling along your floor


And he's old and he's stupid and


he's hungry and he's sore


And he's lame and he's blind


and he's dirty and he's poor


Give him more give him more give him more give him more


give him more give him more give him more


There's a devil crawling along your floor


Oh yeah

You might think he's asleep but look at his eyes


He wants you, baby, to be his bride


There's a devil lying by your side




***

Your loverman!



Until the bitter end


'cause I am what I am what I am what I am


Your loverman!



Your loverman!



'cause I am what I am what I am what I am what I am


Your loverman!









By This River





author: Hans Joachim Roedelius, Brian Eno, Dieter Moebius




Here we are, stuck by this river


You and I underneath the sky


That's ever falling down, down, down


Ever falling down




***




Through the day as if on an ocean


Waiting here, always failing to remember


Why we came, came, came


I wonder why we came




***




You talk to me as if from a distance


And I reply with impressions chosen


From another time, time, time


From another time









Lost In The Stars





author: Maxwell Anderson, Kurt Weill




Before Lord God made the sea and the land


He held all the stars in the palm of His hand


And they ran through His fingers like grains of sand


And one little star fell alone





***




Then the Lord God hunted through the wide night air


For that little dark star on the wind down there


And He stated and promised He takes special care


So it wouldn't get lost again




***




Now a man don't mind if the stars grow dim


Or the clouds blow over and darken him


So long as the Lord God's watching over them


Keeping track, how it all goes on




***




Now I've been walking through the night and day


Till my eyes get weary and my head turns gray


And sometimes it seems maybe God's gone away


Forgetting the promise that we heard Him say




***




And we're lost out here in the stars


Little stars, big stars, blowing through the night


And we're lost out here in the stars








Oh My Love





author: John Winston Lennon, Yoko Ono




Oh my love, for the first time in my life


My eyes are wide open


Oh my lover, for the first time in my life


My eyes can see




***




I see the wind, oh, I see the trees


Everything is clear in my heart


I see the clouds, oh, I see the sky


Everything is clear in our world




***




Oh my love, for the first time in my life


My mind is wide open


Oh my lover, for the first time in my life


My mind can see




***




I feel sorrow, oh, I feel dreams


Everything is clear in my heart


I feel life, oh, I feel love


Everything is clear in our world









Das Lied vom einsamen Mädchen





author: Werner R. Heymann, Robert Gilbert




Sie herzte sanft ihr Spielzeug


Bevor sie es zerbrach


Und hatte eine Sehnsucht


Und wußte nicht wonach




***




Weil sie einsam war


Und so blond ihr Haar


Und ihr Mund so rot wie Wein


Und wer von diesem Wein trank


Konnt' nie mehr glücklich sein




***




Doch einer sprach im Frühling:



"Auch Du fühlst Lust und Schmerz"



Und brachte tausend Rosen


Doch sie brach nur sein Herz




***




Weil sie einsam war


Und so blond ihr Haar


Und ihr Mund so rot wie Wein


Ja, keine konnt' so küssen


Und doch so einsam sein




***




Was blieb von ihrem Leben


Ein Lied, das niemand sang


St. Peter ließ sie warten


Zwei Ewigkeiten lang




***




Weil sie einsam war


Und so blond ihr Haar


Und ihr Herz so tot wie Stein


Dann rief er: "Armes Kind, komm,



Sollst nie mehr einsam sein"









Tiny Girls





author: Iggy Pop, David Bowie




Well, the day begins you don't want to live


'Cause you can't believe in the one you're with


'Cause you know her tricks and you know her past


When she makes a face you just have to laugh




***




And you feel like such a know-it-all


When you only want just a tiny girl


And you hope she'll sing




***




So you turn around toward the tiny girls


Who have got no tricks, who have got no past


Yeah, that's what you think


And you hope she'll sing




***




But she sings of greed like a young banshee


And she wants for this, and she wants for that


Ah, what did you think?









Candy Says





author: Lou Reed




Candy says


I've come to hate my body


And all that it requires in this world Candy says


I'd like to know completely


What others so discreetly talk about




***




I'm gonna watch the bluebirds fly


Over my shoulder


I'm gonna watch 'em pass me by


Maybe when I'm older




***




What do you think I'd see


If I could walk away from me




***




Candy says


I hate the quiet places


That cause the smallest taste of what will be




***




Candy says


I hate the big decisions


That cause endless revisions in my mind




***




I'm gonna watch the bluebirds fly


Over my shoulder


I'm gonna watch 'em pass me by


Maybe when I'm older




***




What do you think I'd see


If I could walk away from me




***




Doo-doo-wah


Doo, doo-doo-wah


Doo, doo-doo-wah


Doo, doo-doo-wah


Doo, doo-doo-wah

Life Is Strange





single: "Stardust" / author: Marc Bolan, T. Rex




Strange, life is strange, life is strange,



Oh life is strange.




***




O God, life is strange,



People come and people go,



Some move fast and some move slow,



No, no, no, no, no.




***




O God, life is good,



Some are fat and some are thin,



Some don't even ask you how you've been,



No, no, no, no, no.




***




Strange, life is strange, life is strange.



Oh life is strange.




***




O God, life is strange,



Some are fast and some are slow,



Some believe, me don't even know,



No, no, no, no, no.




***




Strange life is strange, life is strange.



Oh my life is strange.









Martin Gore





Left Hand Luke And The Beggar Boys





single: "Stardust" / author: T. Rex




Call yourself friend, and look me in the eye,



I'll unstrap my knees and apologise,



'Cos I'm, Left Hand Luke and the beggar boys,



O yes we are.




***




Ain't no neighbours, upon our hill,



Such slight thigh Be-bop and old gumbo jill,



'Cos we're, Left Hand Luke and the beggar boys,



O yes we are.




***




Ain't nobody's some-one,



And it hurts deep inside,



Just call us taxi mama and we'll take you for a ride,



'Cos we're, Left Hand Luke and the beggar boys,



O yes we are.




***




Left Hand Luke and the beggar boys,



O yes we are.




***




Myxomatosis is an animal's disease,



But I got so shook up mama that it ate away my knees,



'Cos I'm, Left Hand Luke and the beggar boys,



O yes we are.




***




Ain't had no money lord, but it's plain to see,



If you had some silver mister how much would you pay for me?



'Cos I'm, Left Hand Luke and the beggar boys,



O yes we are.
