There's a full moon on the rise
And a sadness growing heavy in my soul
You can see it in my eyes
I don't know where to go
No i don't know where to go

There's a kindness in your smile
Please forgive me i can't help but stop and stare
We can walk for miles and miles
I know you'll get me there
Yes I know you'll get me there

Take ME HOME with you tonight
I'm not gonna make it down this lonely street
Take me home with you tonight
I'm not gonna make it on my own
My own two feet

Now the early morning sun
Is burning holes right through the mask i wore all night

Can I take your hand and run
I'll follow you for life
I'll follow you for life

Take me home with you tonight
I'm not gonna make it down this lonely street
Take me home with you tonight
I'm not gonna make it on my own

You're not the one that i can live with
You're the one that i can't live without

Take me home with you tonight
I'm not gonna make it down this lonely street
Take ME HOME with you tonight
I'm not gonna make it on my own,
My own two feet

She calls me home
She says baby it's a LONELY ol' night
I don't know, I'm just so scared
And LONELY, all at the same time

Nobody told me she was gonna work out this way
No no no no no
I guess they knew we'd work it out
In our own way

It's a lonely ol' night
Can I put my arms around you?
It's a lonely ol' night
Custom made for two lonely people
Like me and you

Radio playin' softly some singer's sad sad song
He's singing about standing in the shadows of love
I guess it feels awfully alone
She says I know exactly what he means
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
And it's a sad sad sad sad feeling
When you're living on those in betweens
But it's OK

It's a lonely ol' night
Can I put my arms around you?
It's a lonely ol night
Custom made for two lonely people
Like me and you

She calls me baby
She calls everybody baby
It's a lonely ol' night
But ain't they all?

It's a lonely ol' night
Can I put my arms around you?
It's a lonely ol' night
Custom made for two lonely people
Like me and you
Girl like me and you
Yeah like me and you

Tried to keep you close to me,
But life got in between
Tried to square not being in there
But think that I should've been

HOLD BACK the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Once upon a different life
We rode our bikes into the sky
But now we're caught against the tide
Those distant days all flashing by

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Oh, oho, oho, oho, oho
Oho, oho, oho, oho

Lonely water, lonely water, won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other
Lonely water, lonely water, won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold

Lonely water, lonely water, won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other
Lonely water, lonely water, won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other

So now it's getting late, for those who hesitate, got no one,
But they don't understand, and no one hears the sound,
It's like a WATERFALL, it's an illusion.

Love is all, waterfall, love is what you are,
Pulls you in, takes you down, it's a sad affair,
But you know as you hold back the power there
Without the friends and lovers you could never go on living.

Across the waterfall that's falling evermore down on you,
Cascading through the days, and flowing on it's way,
That's how it has to be, just an illusion.

Waterfall - ELO

Posted on Sep 5, 2016, 12:15:03 AM PDT
Can you feel it?
Now it's coming back
We can steal it.
If we bridge this gap,
I can see you
Through the curtains of the waterfall.

When I lost it,
Yeah you held my hand,
But I tossed it,
Didn't understand,
You were waiting,
As I dove into the waterfall.

So say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!

Can you feel my love?
Bombs away,
Bombs away,
Bombs away.
Can you feel my love?
Bombs away,
Bombs away,
Bombs away,
Say Geronimo!

Well we rushed it,
Moving way too fast.
That we crushed it,
But it's in the past.
We can make this leap,
Through the curtains of the waterfall.

So Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!

Can you feel my love?
Bombs away,
Bombs away,
Bombs away.
Can you feel my love?
Bombs away,
Bombs away,
Bombs away.

Well I'm just a boy,
With a broken toy,
All lost and coy,
At the curtains of the waterfall.
So it's here I stand,
As a broken man,
But I've found my FRIEND,
At the curtains of the waterfall.

Now I'm falling down,
Through the crashing sound.
And you've come around,
At the curtains of the waterfall.

And you rushed to me,
And it sets us free.
So I fall to my knees,
At the curtains of the waterfall.

So Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!
Say Geronimo!

Can you feel (Say Geronimo! [x4]) my love?
Bombs away! [x3] (Say Geronimo! [x4])
Can you feel (make this leap [x4]) my love? Make this leap.
Can you feel my love?

Oh goody, my favorite thread David!
*****************************

I've been sitting up waiting for my sugar to show
I've been listening to the sirens and the radio
He said he'd be over three hours ago
I've been waiting for his car ON THE HILL

He makes friends easy, he's not like me
I watch for judgment anxiously
Now where in the city can that boy be

Waiting for a car
Climbing
Climbing
Climbing the hill

He's a real good talker, I think he's a friend
Fast tires come screaming around the bend
But there's still no buzzer they roll on
And I'm waiting for his car on the hill

It always seems so righteous at the start
When there's so much laughter
When there's so much spark
When there's so much sweetness in the dark

Waiting for a car
Climbing
Climbing
Climbing the hill

Car on a Hill - Joni Mitchell

"The FOOL On The Hill" - The Beatles

Day after day, alone on the hill
The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
But nobody wants to know him
They can see that he's just a fool
And he never gives an answer

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning around

Well on the way, head in a cloud
The man of a thousand voices talking perfectly loud
But nobody ever hears him
Or the sound he appears to make
And he never seems to notice

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning around

And nobody seems to like him
They can tell what he wants to do
And he never shows his feelings

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning around

He never listens to them
He knows that they're the fools
They don't like him

The FOOL on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning around

Just a reminder...to play, tag at least one word from the previous song lyric. It helps to capitalize the tagged word. Let's see if we can get this game off the ground again!

I know what you're doing
I see it all too clear
I only taste the saline
When I kiss away your tears

You really had me going, wishing on a star
But the black holes that surround you
Are heavier by far

I believed in your confusion
You were so completely torn
Well it must have been that yesterday
Was the day that I was born

There's not much to examine
There's nothing left to hide
You really can't be serious
If you have to ask me why

I say good-bye

'Cause I am BARELY breathing
And I can't find the air
I don't know who I'm kidding
Imagining you care, and I could stand here
Waiting a fool for another day
But I don't suppose it's worth the price
Worth the price, the price that I would pay

Everyone keeps asking, what's it all about?
I used to be so certain and I can't figure out
What is this attraction? I only feel the pain
There's nothing left to reason and only you to blame
Will it ever change?

'Cause I am barely breathing
And I can't find the air
I don't know who I'm kidding
Imagining you care, and I could stand here
Waiting a fool for another day
But I don't suppose it's worth the price
Worth the price, the price that I would pay

But I'm thinking it over anyway

I've come to find, I may never know
Your changing mind, is it friend or foe?
I rise above or sink below
With every time you come and go
Please don't, you come and go

'Cause I am barely breathing
And I can't find the air
I don't know who I'm kidding
Imagining you care, and I could stand here
Waiting a fool for another day
But I don't suppose it's worth the price
Worth the price, the price that I would pay

Tagging the word "SUN"

"The Golden Age"

Put your hands on the wheel
Let the golden age begin
Let the window down
Feel the moonlight on your skin
Let the desert wind
Cool your aching head
Let the weight of the world
Drift away instead

These day I barely get by
I don't even try

It's a treacherous road
With a desolated view
There's distant lights
But here they're far and few
And the sun don't shine
Even when its day
You gotta drive all night
Just to feel like you're ok

These days I barely get by
I don't even try

This good Day

Morning sun and morning glories
Pouring down the hill,
Through my window
I can feel the ocean breeze.
Noisy sparrows fill the oak trees
Swallows can't stay still,
And in the glad commotion
LORD, You speak to me

If rain clouds come
Or the cold winds blow,
You're THE ONE Who goes before me
And in my heart I KNOW

This good day
It is a gift from You.
The world is turning in its place
because You made it to.
I lift my voice
To sing a song of praise
On this good day.

I will walk to Woodman's Cove,
The fishing boats are leaving,
Seagulls follow just above the water.
I will wait until the sunset
Brings them home again,
Rigging lines and anchors in the harbor.

If rain clouds come
Or the cold winds blow,
You're the One Who goes before me
And in my heart I know

This good day
It is a gift from You.
The world is turning in its place
because You made it to.
I lift my voice
To sing a song of praise
On this good Day.

Lord, I was born a ramblin' MAN
Tryin' to make a livin' and doin' the best I can.
And when it's time for leavin',
I hope you'll understand,
That I was born a ramblin' man.

My father was a gambler down in Georgia,
And he wound up on the wrong end of a gun.
And I was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus
Rollin' down highway 41.

Lord, I was born a ramblin' man,
Tryin' to make a livin' and doin' the best I can.
And when it's time for leavin',
I hope you'll understand,
That I was born a ramblin' man.

I'm on my way to New Orleans this mornin',
Leaving out of Nashville, Tennessee,
They're always having a good time down on the bayou, Lord
Them Delta women think the world of me.

Lord, I was born a ramblin' man,
Tryin' to make a livin' and doin' the best I can.
And when it's time for leavin',

This is for Texas Woman

From Guy Clark's Grammy nominated album "My favorite picture of You".
His wife died in 2012. Guy is ill now.

SHE's a long way from Houston, long way from those Texas blues
And she came down from Telluride on a steam train bound for somewhere new.
There's a rainbow in the mountains and she's waiting on the sun to shine on through.
You can't tell the tears from the rain if you ain't walked a mile in her boots.

Chorus
Standing in the rain in Durango
Right side of wrong, wrong side of gone
Standing in the rain in Durango
She's waiting on some cowboy to lasso her heart and take her home.

Fell in with some field hippies went needle dancing in a tie dye dress.
Then a Rocky Mountain rain came and they all got soakin' wet.
She wound up with a backstage pass, hangin' with the pickers in the band,
'Til her heart got broke by a banjo man, now she's had all the bluegrass she can stand.

Chorus

She had all of her belongings in a cardboard suitcase sittin' by her side.
And she had no destination, she was just lookin' for a ride.
So he pulled up in a Mustang, she got in and they just rode away.
Headed west into the sunset, mascara runnin' down her face.

Chorus

Standing in the rain in Durango.

When EVENING falls
She'll run to me
Like whispered dreams
Your eyes can't see

Soft and warm
She'll touch my face
A bed of straw
Against the lace

We believed we'd catch the rainbow
Ride the wind to the sun
Sail away on ships of wonder

But life's not a wheel
With chains made of steel
So bless me

Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn

We believed we'd catch the rainbow
Ride the wind to the sun
And sail away on ships of wonder

But life's not a wheel
With chains made of steel
So bless me, oh bless me, bless me

Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn

David has had his 'down times' before. Yet he has come back and posted good songs for us. In that spirit I propose not allowing negativity mar this thread any further.

Let us sing while we have breath.

" I still hear YOU calling
When sleep is escaping me
I still hear you farther on

I see you in waking
A ghost in the window shade
My lover the form you take

By my side
Walk with me
Make this well
By my side

We dance through the evening
You feather around my toes
I still hear the words you pled"

I would like to say how much I appreciate the people who post here and enjoy music.

Thank you to: Cookie, Kacee, Texas Woman, David, doodah, and Omni.
They all posted in the last 6 months.

Note that is better than the original thread participation that doodah referred to in his post on that thread.

Oh my, but you've been a busy girl, trying to find old posts of mine. Yes, you probably noticed that I deleted 99% of my posts from this thread. I did that the day that you started your not so little unprovoked attack on a friend of mine. Yes, that is when things 'changed'. Didn't really feel the need to be associated with anything you were involved with. Did come back when I thought you were finished, as Amazon booted your old ID. (Now why in the world would they do that?)

Don't worry, wasn't planning on deleting that post. It says how much I appreciate David's contribution to the Rock Forum, and how much I appreciate... omnireader. Ahh, but, that's someone else, isn't it? I know she wouldn't come back in here under an alias after Amazon booted her.

The Grateful Dead song is great, the introductory words hypocritical and self serving, as this is about the only place omni has to go around here.

This for me was one of the BEST threads in this forum [Initial post: Jun 30, 2007 5:52:36 PM PDT]. In it's heyday, it was hard to sometimes keep up with posts, they came so fast & furious. Full of fun loving people who shared their love of music, and, more than tagging song titles, the words and emotions contained in those songs, as well as GREAT COVERS of those songs. It introduced myself and others to many artists, new and old, enriching our musical experience and vocabulary. It was nice then, when everyone just wanted to share and "get along". But then, a darkness descended....

Your decision what to do with the thread, David, it's yours. Your intentions were only the best, I have nothing but appreciation and admiration for your efforts. You brought back "Son of" due to great demand for more. You were always a very positive reminder of what the thread was about. I felt a glimmer of hope a while back, as did a few others, it seemed to be safe to "go back in the water", but the menace returned, and like a shark under the surface in the ocean, who knows when it will decide to attack without provocation, just because that is it's nature.

Well, omni, you always seemed to want to rule the thread, maybe you can start one of your own, maybe "Daughter of Song Lyric Tag", and set your own rules.]

Maybe you can remember your own post from the original Song Lyric Tag and discover what has happened to you. If there is a darkness it is not mine. If there is a decision to attack without provocation it is not mine. If there is a will to destroy it is not mine. If there is a menace it is not mine.

I thought about something like that when I logged on. I wondered "what happened to alll of those early posters"?
All gone, and it comes down to about, what, six or so of us out of 293 various people who have posted here? Nahhh, we've been carrying it. David, Valerie and I are the only ones here from the first 5 pages. When Omnireader, Bklyn-Born and Texas Woman joined in you gave us a great and well needed shot in the arm, cos it was dying, down to about 3 of us. Wish Mik Bik was around, he did some great posts.

So I still vote for David to finish it out. He started it, he's still here, and therefore deserving.]

Would it it possible or desirable to have the early contributors to this thread finish it?

I have gone back through all the posts and was amazed and impressed at the great early posts. Great camaraderie and great tunes.

I am very new and would really like to see the early posters names and selections again.

What do you think?]
