Born To Be My Baby, copyright Bon Jovi, 1988

Rainy night and we worked all day
We both got jobs cause there's
Bills to pay
We got something they can't
Take away
Our love, our lives

Close the door, leave the cold outside
I don't need nothing when I'm by your side
We got something that'll never die
Our dreams, our pride

My heart beats like a drum (all night)
Flesh to flesh, one to one
And it's all right
And I'll never let go cause
There's something I know deep inside

You were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be
Your man
We got something to believe in
Even if we don't know
Where we stand
Only God would know the reasons
But I bet he must have had
A plan
Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be
Your man

Light a candle, blow the world away
Table for two on a TV tray
It ain't fancy, baby that's okay
Our time, our way

So hold me close
Better hang on tight
Buckle up, baby, it's a bumpy ride
We're two kids hitching down
The road of life
Our world, our fight

If we stand side by side (all night)
There's a chance we'll get by (and it's alright)
And I know that you'll live
In my heart till the day that
I die

You were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be
Your man
We got something to believe in
Even if we don't know
Where we stand
Only God would know the reasons
But I bet he must have had
A plan
Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be
Your man

My heart beats like a drum
All night
Flesh to flesh, one to one
And it's all right
And I'll never let go cause
There's something I know deep inside

You were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be
Your man
We got something to believe in
Even if we don't know
Where we stand
Only God would know the reasons
But I bet he must have had
A plan
Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be
Your man

Angel, Sarah MacLachlan

Spend all your time waiting,
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There's always some reason,
To feel not good enough,
And it's hard at the end of the day

I need some distraction,
Oh beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
And may be empty,
Oh and weightless and maybe,
I'll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room,
And the endlessness that you fear
You are brung from the wreckage,
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel,
May you find, some comfort here

So tired of the straight line,
But everywhere you turn,
There's vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twistin'
Keep on building the lies,
That you make up for all that you lack

It don't make no difference,
Escape one last time,
It's easier, to believe
In this sweet madness,
Oh, this glorious sadness,
That brings me to my knees

In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room,
And the endlessness that you fear
You are wrung from the wreckage,
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel,
May you find, some comfort here

You're in the arms of the angel,
May you find some comfort here

Fragile, copyright Sting,

If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one
Drying in the colour of the evening sun
Tomorrow's rain will wash the stains away
But something in our minds will always stay

Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime's argument
That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star, like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are, how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star, like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are, how fragile we are
How fragile we are, how fragile we are

Walk On, copyright U2, 2000

And love is not the easy thing
The only baggage you can bring...
And love is not the easy thing...
The only baggage you can bring
Is all that you can't leave behind

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
And for a second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Walk on, walk on
What you got they can't steal it
No, they can't even feel it
Walk on, walk on...
Stay safe tonight

You're packing a suitcase for a place none of us has been
A place that has to be believed to be seen
You could have flown away
A singing bird in an open cage
Who will only fly, only fly for freedom

Walk on, walk on
What you've got they can't deny it
Can't sell it, can't buy it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

And I know it aches
And your heart it breaks
And you can only take so much
Walk on, walk on

Home...hard to know if you've never had one
Home...can't say where it is but I know I'm going home
That's where the heart is

And I know it aches
And your heart it breaks
And you can only take so much
Walk on, walk on

Leave it behind
You've got to leave it behind
All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break
All that you measure
All that you steal
All that you can't leave behind
All that you reason
All that you sense
All that you steal
All you dress up
All that you scheme...

Kite, copyright U2, 2000

Something is about to give
I can feel it coming
I think I know what it means
I'm not afraid to die
I'm not afraid to live
And when I'm flat on my back
I hope to feel like I did

'Cause hardness, it sets in
You need protection
The thinner the skin

I want you to know
That you don't need me anymore
I want you to know
You don't need anyone, anything at all

Who's to say where the wind will take you
Who's to know what it is will break you
Who's to know when the time has come around
Don't wanna see you cry
I know that this is not goodbye

In summer I can taste the salt in the sea
There's a kite blowing out of control on a breeze
I wonder what's gonna happen to you
You wonder what has happened to me

I'm a man, I'm not a child
A man who sees
The shadow behind your eyes

Who's to say where the wind will take you
Who's to know what it is will break you
I don't know where the wind will blow
Who's to know when the time has come around
I don't want to see you cry
I know that this is not goodbye

Did I waste it?
Not so much I couldn't taste it
Life should be fragrant
Roof top to the basement
The last of the rock stars
When hip hop drove the big cars
In the time when new media
Was the big idea
That was the big idea

The Road To Mandalay, copyright Robbie Williams and Guy Chanbers, 2000

Save me from drowning in the sea
Beat me up on the beach

What a lovely holiday
There's nothing funny left to say

This sombre song would drain the sun
But it won't shine until it's sung

No water running in the stream
The saddest place we've ever been

Everything I touched was golden
Everything I loved got broken
On the road to Mandalay
Every mistake I've ever made
Has been rehashed and then replayed
As I got lost along the way

There's nothing left for you to give
The truth is all that you're left with
Twenty paces then at dawn
We will die and be reborn

I like to sleep beneath the trees
Have the universe at one with me
Look down the barrel of a gun
And feel the Moon replace the Sun

Everything we've ever stolen
Has been lost returned or broken
No more dragons left to slay
Every mistake I've ever made
Has been rehashed and then replayed
As I got lost along the way

Save me from drowning in the sea
Beat me up on the beach
What a lovely holiday
There's nothing funny left to say.

Everything, copyright Lifehouse, 2000

find me here
speak to me
i want to feel you
i need to hear you
you are the light
that is leading me
to the place where
i find peace again
you are the strength
that keeps me walking
you are the hope
that keeps me trusting
you are the life to my soul
you are my purpose
you are everything
and how can i
stand here with you
and not be moved by you
would you tell me
how could it be
any better than this
you calm the storms
you give me rest
you hold me in your hands
you won't let me fall
you still my heart
and you take my breath away
would you take me in
would you take me deeper now
'cause you're all i want
you are all i need
you are everything
everything

Love Me Back to Life, copyright Bon Jovi, 2002

This world don't give you nothing
It can't take away
Everybody holding on to something
Nobody wants to fade away
No forgiveness on
The streets of this town
I left my patience at a traffic light
There's no denying that I almost lost it
Threw in the towel, too tired to fight

Tonight I need you
More than yesterday
Tonight I need you
Take me, touch me
Hold me like you mean it
Make me come alive
Hurt me, heal me
Come and make me feel it
Rescue me tonight
Love me back to life

These days I'd trade sight for feeling
There are days my feeling's gone
Can't figure out whose life I'm living
I don't know right from wrong
When I lost faith
You found it and gave it back to me
There's new light on your halo

It took blind eyes to see
That I need you
More than yesterday
Yeah, I need you
Take me, touch me
Hold me like you mean it
Make me come alive
Hurt me, heal me
Come and make me feel it
Rescue me tonight
Love me back to life

Take me, touch me
Hold me like you mean it
Make me come alive
Hurt me, heal me
Come and make me feel it
Rescue me tonight
Love me back to life
Love me back to life
Love me back to life
Love me back to life
