This was more difficult than I expected, mostly because I didn't expect to find so many one-word-three-syllable song titles. But I got to listen to a bunch of songs I hadn't listened to in a while, so that's good.




Faithfully by Journey



Lyrics:

Highway run
Into the midnight sun
Wheels go 'round and 'round
You're on my mind


Restless hearts
Sleep alone tonight
Sending all my love
Along the wire


They say that the road
Ain't no place to start a family
Right down the line it's been you and me


And loving a music man
Ain't always what it's supposed to be


Oh girl
You stand by me
I'm forever yours,
Faithfully


Circus life
Under the big top world
We all need the clowns to make us smile


Through space and time
Always another show
Wondering where I am,
Lost without you


And being apart ain't easy on this love affair
Two strangers learn to fall in love again
I get the joy of rediscovering you


Oh girl
You stand by me
I'm forever yours,
Faithfully


Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Faithfully


I'm still yours
I'm forever yours
Ever yours
Faithfully







Wallflower by Peter Gabriel

This is a new version recorded in 2010, when Peter Gabriel was 60. You can hear the original version at https://youtu.be/81NIqD5Oa-g.



Lyrics:

6 by 6, from wall to wall
Shutters on the windows, no light at all
Damp on the floor you got damp in the bed
They're trying to get you crazy - get you out of your head
They feed you scraps and they feed you lies
To lower your defences, no compromise
Nothing you can do, the day can be long
Your mind is working overtime, your body's not too strong


Hold on, hold on
They put you in a box so you can't get heard
Let your spirit stay unbroken, may you not be deterred


Hold on, you have gambled with your own life
And you face the night alone
While the builders of the cages
They sleep with bullets, bars and stone
They do not see your road to freedom
That you build with flesh and bone


They take you out - the light burns your eyes
To the talking room - it's no surprise
Loaded questions from clean white coats
Their eyes are all as hidden as their Hippocratic Oath
They tell you - how to behave, behave as their guest
You want to resist them, you do your best
They take you to your limits, they take you beyond
For all that they are doing there's no way to respond


Hold on, hold on
They put you in a box so you can't get heard
Let your spirit stay unbroken, may you not be deterred


Hold on, you have gambled with your own life
And you face the night alone
While the builders of the cages
They sleep with bullets, bars and stone
They do not see your road to freedom
That you build with flesh and bone


Though you may disappear, you're not forgotten here
And I will say to you, I will do what I can do


You may disappear, you're not forgotten here
And I will say to you, I will do what I can do
And I will do what I can do
And I will do what I can do







Possession by Sarah McLachlan



Lyrics:

Listen as the wind blows
From across the great divide
Voices trapped in yearning
Memories trapped in time
The night is my companion
And solitude my guide
Would I spend forever here
And not be satisfied


And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I'll take your breath away
And after I'd, wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear


Through this world I've stumbled
So many times betrayed,
Trying to find an honest word,
To find the truth enslaved,
Oh you speak to me in riddles and
You speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath,
Your words keep me alive


And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I'll take your breath away
And after I'd, wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear


Into this night I wander,
It's morning that I dread,
Another day of knowing of
The path I fear to tread,
Oh, into the sea of waking dreams
I follow without pride,
Nothing stands between us here
And I won't be denied


And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I'll take your breath away
And after I'd, wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear


I'll hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I'll take your breath away
And after I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes







And my favorite of these four:

Misery by Pink (w/ Steven Tyler)



Lyrics:

Shadows are fallin' all over town
Another night and these blues got me down
Oh, misery! I sure could use some company
Since he's been gone I ain't been the same
I carry the weight like an old ball and chain
Guess its all meant to be
For love to cause me misery


Oh misery! Oh misery!
Tell me why does my heart make a fool of me
Seems its my destiny
For love to cause me misery


And, oh! I've been down this road before
With a passion that turns into pain
And each I saw love walk out the door
I swore never get caught again


But ain't it true? It takes what it takes
And sometime we get too smart to late.
One more heartache for me
Another night of misery


Oh! And oh misery! Oh misery!
Tell me why does my heart make a fool of me
Oh misery! Oh misery!
Tell me why, why, why, why, why, why does this
Heart make a fool of me
Seems its my destiny
For love to cause misery, oh
Misery
Guess its all meant to be
For love to cause me misery, oh, no, yeah
Misery
