    How about sharing some of your favourite songs?

    To get the ball rolling, here is my first offering:

    Sweet Surrender
    Lost and alone on some forgotten highway,
    Travelled by many remembered by few,
    Looking for something that I can believe in,
    Looking for something that Iíd like to do with my life.

    Thereís nothing behind me and nothing that ties me
    To something that might have been true yesterday.
    Tomorrow is open and right now it seems to be more
    Than enough to just be there today

    And I donít know what the future is holding in store;
    I donít know where Iím going, Iím not sure where Iíve been.
    Thereís a spirit that guides me, a light that shines for me;
    My life is worth the living, I donít need to see the end

    Sweet, sweet surrender;
    Live, live without care;
    Like a fish in the water;
    Like a bird in the air.

    John Denver

    Reflect/Refract

    All the lights are burning bright
    But our bodies taking flight
    Shadows cast are evidence
    There is a deeper world than this
    Hearts like candles light the way
    Turning darkness into day
    Let us all this light absorb
    Until at last we are no more
    Yet I am just a prism
    Ceaselessly refracting
    All of the light you are exacting
    Flesh dissolving in the light
    Soaking us all in radiation
    The pathogens take hold at once
    And begin the transformation
    Father of lights
    Shine upon us here
    Take the darkness from our hearts
    Make it disappear
    Reflect
    Refract
    Break me
    Remake me
    A mirror that reflects your glory
    Break me
    Remake me
    A mirror that reflects you perfectly

    Jack Savoretti - Chemical Courage lyrics

    Tonight has been long
    I've smoked every breath
    Trying to feel so alive
    Tempting death

    I've smiled at the angels
    But I fear where they live
    I've taken too much
    With nothing to give

    [Chorus]
    My chemical courage
    Has come to an end
    The night once my lover
    Is no longer my friend

    Well tonignt has gone wrong
    Coz I said what I said
    I've been left all alone
    To lie in my bed

    Thinking I'm just a fake
    But nothing is real
    And if I'm asking to be saved
    I must learn how to kneel

    [Chorus]
    Now my chemical courage
    Has come to an end
    The night once my lover
    Is no longer a friend
    Playing tricks on my eyes
    Shining light on my tears
    Pray for a new day
    To hide all my fears
    In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird that sings.
    Sometimes all our thoughts are misgiven.

    The Stann Creek Valley Road
    by Ricardo Garcia Ramirez

    Daddy rode the thunder,
    Daddy rode the wind,
    Daddy drove the Stann Creek Freight
    and I remember when.

    I remember when the shiny rail
    was all the road we had
    though it was covered up and gone
    while I was yet a lad.

    From Middlesex to Commerce Bight
    down through the orchards green,
    the wealth of Stann Creek Valley rolled
    to lands we'd never seen.

    Seven Sisters were the bridges named
    along that narrow track,
    and I would give all that I have
    if I could now go back.

    But all of that is past and gone,
    smooth highway's all we see,
    The people on the busses never
    think what used to be.

    Too few of us recall that time,
    Too few of us still care,
    Too few of us remember when

    the shiny rail was there.

    Daddy rode the thunder,
    Daddy rode the wind,
    Daddy drove the Stann Creek Freight
    and I remember when.

    Don't Stop Believin' / Journey


    Just a small town girl, livin' in a lonely world
    She took the midnight train goin' anywhere
    Just a city boy, born and raised in south Detroit
    He took the midnight train goin' anywhere

    A singer in a smokey room
    A smell of wine and cheap perfume
    For a smile they can share the night
    It goes on and on and on and on

    Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard
    Their shadows searching in the night
    Streetlights people, living just to find emotion
    Hiding, somewhere in the night.

    Working hard to get my fill,
    Everybody wants a thrill
    Payin' anything to roll the dice,
    Just one more time
    Some will win, some will lose
    Some were born to sing the blues
    Oh, the movie never ends
    It goes on and on and on and on

    Don't stop believin'
    Hold on to the feelin'
    Streetlights people

    Don't stop believin'
    Hold on
    Streetlight people

    Don't stop believin'
    Hold on to the feelin'
    Streetlights people

    VNV Nation / Standing

    Eyes betray the soul and bear its thinking
    Beyond words, they say so many things to me
    A stranger here, reborn it seems
    Awaking wonders deep in me
    If nothing's ventured, nothing's gained
    So I must seize the day

    And fighting time, so hard I pray
    That this moment lasts forever
    And will the world stay standing still, at least for me
    Through my eyes, stare into me
    I bear my heart for all to see
    With my face turned to the sun, there ever standing still

    It wasn't you, it wasn't me, it wasn't anything
    It was a day so long awaited and a chance to be as me
    I let the wind run through my hands
    Before I turned to walk away
    In distant days, I long to sense it, all so clear

    And fighting time, so hard I pray
    That this moment lasts forever
    And will the world stay standing still, at least for me
    Through my eyes stare into me
    I bear my heart for all to see
    With my face turned to the sun, there ever standing still

    And fighting time, so much I ask
    I will this moment last forever
    Though seasons change and things come to pass
    Remain inside of me
    And fighting time, so hard I pray
    That this moment lasts forever
    And will the world stay standing still, at least for me

    I had no faith before that time in any vow or deed
    Days followed days and years were meaningless
    Despite the wisdom of defeat
    I bore my heart for all to see, the wonders I'd seen
    The wonders I'd seen

    And fighting time, so hard I pray
    That this moment lasts forever
    And will the world stay standing still, at least for me
    Through my eyes stare into me
    I bear my heart for all to see
    With my face turned to the sun, there ever standing still

    And fighting time, so much I ask
    I will this moment last forever
    Though seasons change and things come to pass
    Remain inside of me
    And fighting time so hard I pray
    That this moment lasts forever
    And will the world stay standing still, at least for me

    Try To Remember

    Thank you so much for all your beautiful contributions.

    Here's another one of mine:

    Try To Remember
    Try to remember the kind of September
    When life was slow and oh, so mellow.
    Try to remember the kind of September
    When grass was green and grain was yellow.
    Try to remember the kind of September
    When you were a tender and callow fellow.
    Try to remember, and if you remember,
    Then follow.

    Try to remember when life was so tender
    That no one wept except the willow.
    Try to remember when life was so tender
    That dreams were kept beside your pillow.
    Try to remember when life was so tender
    That love was an ember about to billow.
    Try to remember, and if you remember,
    Then follow.

    Deep in December, it's nice to remember,
    Although you know the snow will follow.
    Deep in December, it's nice to remember,
    Without a hurt the heart is hollow.
    Deep in December, it's nice to remember,
    The fire of September that made us mellow.
    Deep in December, our hearts should remember
    And follow.

    Leaves From the Vine - from Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon

    Leaves from the vine
    Falling so slow
    Like tiny fragile shells
    Drifting in the foam
    Little soldier boy
    Come marching home
    Brave soldier boy
    Comes marching home

    Time Is A Healer



    I found a picture of your smiling face,
    Bringing old memories that I had locked away.
    The burden of anger from a heart filled with pain
    Was finally lifted and I smile at you again.

    If time is a healer,
    Then all hearts that break
    Are put back together again,
    ĎCos love heals the wound it makes.

    I spoke such harsh words before goodbye.
    Well, I wanted to hurt you for the tears you made
    You made me cry.
    All my hopes and dreams, they started vanishing and
    Those tender hurt feelings became a dangerous thing.

    All of those years we spent together,
    Theyíre now part of my life forever.
    I hold the joy with the pain
    And the truth is: I miss you, my friend.

    Well time is a healer...

    People should smile more
    Im not saying theres nothing to cry for but you've got
    Everything laid out for you
    Just close your eyes, take a deep breath and start another war

    Keep buying, keep moving, this city, is sitting,
    next to me, well laid out, it's gona come, one thing is certain

    I can't change the world
    Cos tryin' to make a difference makes things worst
    It's just an observation I can't ignore
    That people should smile more

    People should smile more
    But the lights are so bright that they blind you, just one more
    Meaningless scientific break through
    The more we know, the less we care whilst damaged on the way

    Keep moving, keep buying, this city, is sitting
    Next to me, well laid out, it's gona come, one thing is certain

    I can't change the world
    Cos tryin' to make a difference makes things worst
    It's just an observation I can't ignore
    That people should smile more


    Doo doo ba doo da doo dee dee do x4

    I can't change the world
    Cos tryin' to make a difference makes things worst
    It's just an observation I can't ignore
    That people should smile more

    I can't change the world
    Cos tryin' to make a difference makes things worst
    It's just an observation I can't ignore
    That people should smile more

    Sometimes all our thoughts are misgiven.
