    The Days of the Ring - Howard Shore feat. Annie Lennox

    Lay down your sweet and weary head
    Night is falling, you have come to journey's end
    Sleep now and dream of the ones who came before
    They are calling from across the distant shore
    Why do you weep? What are these tears upon your face?
    Soon you will see all of your fears will pass away
    Safe in my arms, you're only sleeping
    What can you see on the horizon?
    Why do the white gulls call?
    Across the sea, a pale moon rises
    The ships have come to carry you home
    And all will turn to silver glass
    A light on the water, all souls pass
    Hope fades into the world of night
    Through shadows fallen, out of memory and time
    Don't say we have come now to the end
    White shores are calling, you and I will meet again
    You'll be here in my arms, just sleeping
    What can you see on the horizon?
    Why do the white gulls call?
    Across the sea a pale moon rises
    The ships have come to carry you home
    And all will turn to silver glass
    A light on the water, grey ships pass into the West

    "The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated. And the only thing people regret is that they didn't live boldly enough, that they didn't invest enough heart, didn't love enough. Nothing else really counts at all. It was a saying about noble figures in old Irish poemsóhe would give his hawk to any man that asked for it, yet he loved his hawk better than men nowadays love their bride of tomorrow. He would mourn a dog with more grief than men nowadays mourn their fathers.

    And that's how we measure out our real respect for peopleóby the degree of feeling they can register, the voltage of life they can carry and tolerateóand enjoy.
    "

    Almost a week late, but what the heck.
    The Soldier's Song - Demon Hunter

    Through the clouds of fallen ash
    A lonely mother's cry
    Among the fields of broken glass
    The loyal few will arise
    Faith now regained
    Finding strength within the void
    A raging fire ignites
    A spark of ever-burning fire
    And conviction to fight
    Pride be your name
    They will spit upon the honor that
    You guard with your life
    And run and hide in fear
    When the threat of death is in sight
    Lay down your shame
    Armed with resistance and blind to the cost
    They say your purpose is mindless and lost
    But we don't adhere to the slander they spill
    We mourn with your losses and stand for your will
    These tears we spill
    They haunt us still
    The cries of the weak lie quiet in sleep
    Beneath our feet
    We are the sons of holy wrath
    A shining light in the dark
    The ones who walk amongst despair
    No sign of fear in our hearts
    Stand in death's way
    Shout out the voice of mindlessness
    Open our eyes to the truth
    Believe the words that stand the test
    Not the slurs of the youth
    You're not what they say
    Turn over the tables and watch them run
    You'll be the weapon they can't outgun

    Catch Myself Catching Myself - Underoath

    This time I am falling further away
    Nothing has changed
    Nothing has changed like I said it would
    Faster towards the ground
    That's where they wait
    Where they wait for me and enter my veins
    I feel them crawling through my skin
    Collecting my nerves that they feed to their children
    I swear it has to stop
    Plus there is nothing left to give
    I'll be the victor
    I will destroy them
    I want to watch them burn it down
    So I can breathe again
    Inhale, 'cause after tonight I won't be the same
    Exhale and find my feet on the ground
    I'm not the same anymore
    As I sink down into the floor
    And the walls are caving in
    And I don't believe in them anymore
    Now I try to balance my walk
    I am coming down alone
    And I have to get them out of my head
    One breath at a time
    I'll be just fine
    'Cause I'll be right on the inside
    I'll steady my hands inside of my shell
    And wait 'til their backs are turned
    Oh, inside of my head
    Where they though they would win
    But I got them right where I want them
    Pushed to either side
    I'm burning them alive
    I hear them, begging and pleading

    Billy Joel / Ray charles ....... Baby Grand


    Late at night
    When it's dark and cold
    I reach out
    For someone to hold
    When I'm blue
    When I'm lonely
    She comes through
    She's the only one who can
    My baby grand
    Is all I need

    In my time
    I've wandered everywhere
    Around this world
    She would always be there
    Any day
    Any hour
    All it takes
    Is the power in my hands
    This baby grand's
    Been good to me

    I've had friends
    But they have slipped away
    I've had fame
    But it doesn't stay
    I've made fortunes
    Spent them fast enough
    As for women
    They don't last with just one man
    But my baby grand
    Will stand by me

    They say that no one's gonna play this on the radio
    They said the melancholy blues were dead and gone
    But only songs like these
    Played in minor keys
    Keep those memories holding on

    I've come far
    From the life I've strayed in
    I've got scars
    From those dives I've played in
    Now I'm home
    And I'm weary
    In my bones
    Every dreary one night stand
    But my baby grand
    Is coming home with me

    Ever since this gig began
    My baby grand's
    Been good to me

    The Windmills of your Mind by Noel Harrison

    Round like a circle in a spiral
    Like a wheel within a wheel
    Never ending on beginning
    On an ever-spinning reel
    Like a snowball down a mountain
    Or a carnival balloon
    Like a carousel that's turning
    Running rings around the moon
    Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
    Past the minutes on its face
    And the world is like an apple
    Whirling silently in space
    Like the circles that you find
    In the windmills of your mind

    Like a tunnel that you follow
    To a tunnel of its own
    Down a hollow to a cavern
    Where the sun has never shone
    Like a door that keeps revolving
    In a half-forgotten dream
    Or the ripples from a pebble
    Someone tosses in a stream
    Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
    Past the minutes on its face
    And the world is like an apple
    Whirling silently in space
    Like the circles that you find
    In the windmills of your mind

    Keys that jingle in your pocket
    Words that jangle in your head
    Why did summer go so quickly?
    Was it something that I said?
    Lovers walk along a shore
    And leave their footprints in the sand
    Was the sound of distant drumming
    Just the fingers of your hand?
    Pictures hanging in a hallway
    Or the fragment of a song
    Half-remembered names and faces
    But to whom do they belong?
    When you knew that it was over
    Were you suddenly aware
    That the autumn leaves were turning
    To the color of her hair?

    Like a circle in a spiral
    Like a wheel within a wheel
    Never ending or beginning
    On an ever-spinning reel
    As the images unwind
    Like the circles that you find
    In the windmills of your mind

    Youíll Never Walk Alone



    When you walk through a storm,
    Hold your head up high
    And donít be afraid of the dark.
    At the end of the storm
    Is a golden sky
    And the sweet silver song of the lark.

    Walk on through the wind,
    Walk on through the rain,
    Though your dreams be tossed and blown.
    Walk on walk on with hope in your heart
    And youíll never walk alone,
    Youíll never walk alone.

    When you walk through a storm,
    Hold your head up high
    And donít be afraid of the dark.
    At the end of the storm

    Walk on through the wind,
    Walk on through the rain,
    Though your dreams be tossed and blown.
    Walk on walk on with hope in your heart
    And youíll never walk alone,
    Youíll never walk.

    Youíll never walk,
    Youíll never walk alone.

    "Dance Me To The End Of Love" by Leonard Cohen
    Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
    Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in
    Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love
    Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
    Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
    Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love

    Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
    Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
    We're both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love

    Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
    Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
    Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
    Dance me to the end of love

    Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
    Dance me through the panic till I'm gathered safely in
    Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love
