The Street of Dreams – Axl Rose

December 13, 2008

All the love in the world
Couldn’t save you
All the innocence inside
You know I tried so hard to make you
Oh, to make you change your mind

And it hurts too much to see you
And how you left yourself behind
You know I wouldn’t want to be you
Now there’s a hell I can’t describe

So now I wander through my days
And try to find my ways
To the feelings that I felt
I saved for you and no one else
And though as long as this road seems
I know it’s called the street of dreams
But that’s not stardust on my feet
It leaves a taste that’s bittersweet
That’s called the blues

I don’t know just what I should do
Everywhere I go I see you
Though it’s what you planned
This much is true
What I thought was beautiful
Don’t live inside of you

I don’t know just what I should do
Everywhere I go I see you
Though it’s what you planned
This much is true
What I thought was beautiful
Don’t live inside of you

What this means to me
Is more than I know you believe
What I thought of you now
Has cost more that it should for me

What I thought was true before
Were lies I couldn’t see
What I thought was beautiful
Is only memories


Look At Your Game, Girl – Guns n’ Roses

November 7, 2008

There’s a time for living
Time keeps on flying
Think you’re loving baby
But all your doing is crying

Can you feel
Are those feelings real
Look at your game, girl
Look at your game, girl

What a mad delusion
Living in that confusion
Frustration and doubt
Can you ever live without the game

The sad, sad game
Mad game
Just to say loves’ not enough
If it can’t be true
Oh, you can tell those lies baby but you’re only fooling you

Can you feel
I know those feelings ain’t real
Then you better stop trying
Or you’re gonna play crying
Stop trying
Or you’re gonna play crying
Stop trying

That’s the game
Sad sad game
Mad game
Sad game


Sweet Child of Mine – Guns n Roses

July 9, 2008

Queen – Sail Away Sweet Sister

Sail away sweet sister
sail across the sea
Maybe you’ll find somebody
that’ll love half as much as me
My heart is always with you
no matter what you do
So sail away sweet sister
’cause I’ll always be in love with you.

Grand Funk Railroad – Bad Time

But let her be somebody else’s queen
I don’t wanna know about you
’cause there’s too many others
who know what I mean
and that’s why I got to live without you
I’m in love with a girl
I’m talking about
I’m in love with a girl
that I can’t live without
I’m in love
but I feel like I’m living it out
I’m in love
but I must’ve picked a bad time
to be in love.

Sweet Child Of Mine

She’s got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky
Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I’d stare too long
I’d probably break down and cry

She’s got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I hate to look into those eyes
And see an ounce of pain
Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
Where as a child I’d hide
And pray for the thunder
And the rain
To quietly pass me by

Sweet love of mine
Sweet child o’ mine


Guns n’ Roses – Dust in the Wind – Live 1993

January 31, 2008

This is a cover of a song by Todd Rundgren.

Tell everyone that I am sorry, truly sorry
For all the wrongs I done
I never meant to hurt nobody
Lord I never want to do no wrong

I have lied, I have begged and I have cheated
And I know my ship wont be coming in
As I lay me down to take my rest
I see that its just dust in the wind

Take hold my hand, hold it tighter, ever tighter
You must believe that I love you still
But my strength, it grows weaker, ever weaker
And my body has lost its will

Oh my lord, I have lost once again
And I got no one to help me find my way
But I never wanted to hurt nobody
And I never wanted to do no wrong

Once There Was This Rock n Roll Band

January 4, 2008

“Once there was this rock n’ roll band rollin’ on the streets
Time went by and it became a joke
We just needed more and more fulfilling
Time went by and it all went up in smoke
But check it out.”

-Pretty Tied Up Use Your Illusion
