Jewel – You were meant for me

I hear the clock, it’s six a.m.
I feel so far from where I’ve been
I got my eggs and my pancakes too
I got my maple syrup, everything but you.
I break the yolks, make a smiley face
I kinda like it in my brand new place
I wipe the spots off the mirror
Don’t leave the keys in the door
Never put wet towels on the floor anymore’ cause
Dreams last for so long
even after you’re gone
I know you love me
And soon you will see
You were meant for me
And I was meant for you.
I called my momma, she was out for a walk
Consoled a cup of coffee but it didn’t wanna talk
So I picked up a paper, it was more bad news
More hearts being broken or people being used
Put on my coat in the pouring rain
I saw a movie it just wasn’t the same
‘Cause it was happy and I was sad
It made me miss you oh so bad ’cause
Dreams last for so long
Even after you’re gone
I know you love me
And soon you will see
You were meant for me
And I was meant for you.
I go about my business, I’m doin fine
Besides what would I say if I had you on the line
Same old story, not much to say
Hearts are broken, everyday.
I brush my teeth and put the cap back on
I know you hate it when I leave the light on
I pick a book up. Turn the sheets down.
Take a deep breath and a good look around
Put on my pjs and hop into bed
I’m half alive but I feel mostly dead
I try and tell myself it’ll be all right
I just shouldn’t think anymore tonight ’cause
Dreams last for so long
Even after you’re gone
I know you love me
And soon I know you will see
You were meant for me
And I was meant for you

Yeah…. You were meant for me
and I was meant for you.

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

Well I’m not the kind to kiss and tell
but I’ve been seen with Farah.
I’ve never been with anything less than a nine so fine.
I’ve been on fire with Sally Fields
gone fast with a girl named Bo
but somehow they just don’t end up as mine.
It’s a death-defying life I lead
I take my chances.
I die for a livin’ in the movies and T.V.
but the hardest thing I ever do
is watch my leadin’ ladies
kiss some other guy
while I’m bandagin’ my knees.

I might fall from a tall building
I might roll a brand-new car
’cause I’m the unknown stuntman
that made Redford such a star.

I’ve never spent much time in school
but I taught ladies plenty.
It’s true I hire my body out for pay (hey, hey).
I’ve gotten burned over Cheryl Tiegs
blown up for Raquel Welch
but when I end up in the hay it’s only hay (hey, hey).

I might jump an open drawbridge
or Tarzan from a vine
’cause I’m the unknown stuntman
that makes Eastwood lookes so fine.

They’ll never make me president
but I’ve got the best first ladies.
Some days I’ve got’em as far as the eye can see.
A morning dive with Jackie Smith
I crash in the night with Cheryl
but in the end they never stay with me.

I might fall from a tall building
so Burt Reynolds don’t get hurt
I might leap a mighty canyon
so he can kiss and flirt.
While that smooth talker’s kissin’ my girl
I’m just kissin’ dirt

yes I’m the lonely stuntman
that made a lover out of Burt.

I thought love was only true in fairytales
Meant for someone else but not for me
Love was out to get me,that’s the way it seemed
Dissappointment haunted all my dreams

Then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer.
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind.
I’m in love
(ooooooaaaahhh)
I’m a believer, I couldn’t leave her
if I tried

I thought love was more or less a given thing
The more I gave the less I got, Oh Yeah
What’s the use of trying
All you get is pain
When I wanted sunshine I got rain

Then I saw her face,
Now i’m a believer.
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind.
I’m in love
(ooooooaaaaahhhh)
I’m a believer, I couldn’t leave her
if I tried

What’s the use in tyring
All you get is pain
When I wanted Sunshine I got rain!

Then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer!
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I’m in love
(ooooooaaaahhh)
I’m a believer, I couldn’t leave her
if I tried

Then I saw her face,
Now I’m a believer.
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind.
I’m a believer, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeahhaah….

Im a Believer

Squeeze – Tempted

I bought a toothbrush, some toothpaste
A flannel for my face
Pajamas, a hairbrush
New shoes and a case
I said to my reflection
Let’s get out of this place
Past the church and the steeple
The laundry on the hill
The billboards and the buildings
Memories of it still
Keep calling (keep calling) and calling (and calling)
But forget it all
I know I will

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What’s been going on
Now that you have gone
There’s no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

I’m at the car park, the airport
The baggage carousel
The people keep on crowding
I’m wishing I was well
I said it’s no occasion
It’s no story I could tell

At my bedside empty pocket
A foot without a sock
Your body gets much closer
I fumble for the clock
Alarmed by the seduction
I wish it would stop

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What’s been going on
Now that you have gone
There’s no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

I bought a novel, some perfume
A fortune all for you
But it’s not my conscience
Hating to be untrue
I asked of my reflection
What is there to do?

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What’s been going on
Now that you have gone
There’s no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
Tempted by the truth of another
Tempted and the truth is discovered
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

In between the lines
There’s a lot of obscurity
I’m not inclined to resign to maturity
If it’s all right then you’re all wrong
Why bounce around to the same damn song
You’d rather run when you can’t walk

I know You know that
I’m not telling the truth
I know you know they
Just don’t have any proof
Embrace the deception, learn how to bend
Your worst inhibitions, will Psych you out in the end

I know you know, I know you know,
I know you know, I know you know ,
I know you know, I know you know

Beer, Beer, Beer, tiddly beer, beer, beer

A long time ago way back in history
When all there was to drink, was nothing but cups of tea.
Along came a man by the name of Charlie Mopps,
And he invented a wonderful drink and he made it out of hops.

Hey!

He must have been an admiral, a sultan, or a king.
And to his praises we shall always sing.
Look at what he’s done for us, he’s filled us up with cheer.
Lord Bless Charlie Mopps the man who invented
Beer, Beer, Beer, tiddly beer, beer, beer

The Drunken Rat, the Aiken Drum, the Trowles Pub as well,
One thing you can be sure of, it’s Charlies’ beer they sell
So all ye lads and lasses at eleven o’clock ye stop.
For five short seconds, remember Charlie Mopps.

One,
Two,
Three,
Four,
Five…

Hey!

He must have been an admiral, a sultan, or a king.
And to his praises we shall always sing.
Look at what he’s done for us, he’s filled us up with cheer.
Lord Bless Charlie Mopps the man who invented
Beer, Beer, Beer, tiddly beer, beer, beer

A barrel of malt, a bushel of hops, you stir it around with a stick.
The kind of lubrication to make your engines tick.
forty pints of wallop a day will keep away the quacks.
Its only eight pence hapenny, and one and six in tax.

One,
Two,
Three,
Four,
Five…

Hey!

He must have been an admiral, a sultan, or a king.
And to his praises we shall always sing.
Look at what he’s done for us, he’s filled us up with cheer.
Lord Bless Charlie Mopps the man who invented
Beer, Beer, Beer, tiddly beer, beer, beer, tiddly beer, beer, beer.

The Lord bless Charlie Mopps.
