On My Own

On My Own

performed by Vincent Vincent & the Villains

I’m on my own (x6)
In this world
I’m on my own (x6)
Woah, Yeah
Well I fought myself today
I was out of inspiration
Yeah, the people I been hangin’ around with
Really (?) My concentration.
And I, turn into someone that I didn’t like.
And that’s no fun.
Yeah, tonight I’m only gonna look out for number one.
-And that’s me!
Said,
I’m on my own (x6)
In this world.
I’m on my own (x6)
Oh
Well, I won’t take this for granted.
Cause nothing’s as it seems.
And I won’t, cut myself on other people’s broken dreams.
Oh
I’m on my own (x6)
In this world.
rock and roll!
Well I won’t rely on you,
So don’t you rely on me.
I don’t need nobody’s approval,
I’ll live without it happily.
So if you’re looking for a shoulder,
on which you need to cry.
Don’t call me up cause my main concern is
Me, myself and I!
I’m on my own (x6)
In this world.
Alright, let’s try it.
One last time,
I’m on my own (x6)

Anyone Else But You

Anyone Else But You

performed live at Spinner by The Moldy Peaches

You’re a part-time lover and a full-time friend,
The monkey on your back is the latest trend.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
I kiss you on the brain in the shadow of the train,
Kiss you all starry-eyed, my body swingin’ from side to side.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
Here is the church and here is the steeple,
We sure are cute for two ugly people.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
Pebbles forgive me, the trees forgive me,
So, why can’t you forgive me?
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
I will find my nitch in your car,
With my MP3, DVD, rumple-packed guitar.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
… … …
Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, be a start.
Just because we use cheats doesn’t mean we’re not smart.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
You are always tryin’ to keep it real,
I’m in love with how you feel.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
We both have shiny, happy fits of rage,
You want more fans, I want more stage.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
Don Quixote was a steel-driving man,
My name is Adam, I’m your biggest fan!
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
Scrinched up your face and did a dance,
Shook a little turd out of the bottom of your pants.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
… … … but you.

They Can’t Take That Away From Me

They Can’t Take That Away From Me

Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers

from the musical, Shall We Dance

“…They never danced to the song in the 1937 film. This video was taken from their 1949 reunion film ‘The Barkleys of Broadway‘ where Astaire insisted on reprising this immortal tune and including a dance break…”

There are many, many crazy things
That will keep me loving you,
And with your permission
May I list a few?
The way you wear your hat.
The way you sip your tea.
The memory of all that –
No, no – they can’t take that away from me.
The way your smile just beams.
The way you sing off-key.
The way you haunt my dreams.
No, no – they can’t take that away from me.
We may never, never meet again
On that bumpy road to love
Still I’ll always,
Always keep the memory of:
The way you hold your knife (do-do-do-do do-do).
The way we danced until three.
The way you’ve changed my life.
No, no – they can’t take that away from me.
No, they can’t take that away from me.

In Your Eyes

If you have not seen the movie Say Anything you should…

In Your Eyes

performed by Peter Gabriel

Love I get so lost, sometimes
Days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
When I want to run away
I drive off in my car
But whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

All my instincts, they return
And the grand facade, so soon will burn
Without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes
The light the heat
In your eyes
I am complete
In your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes
I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
The heat I see in your eyes

Love, I don’t like to see so much pain
So much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

And all my instincts, they return
And the grand facade, so soon will burn
Without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes
The light the heat
In your eyes
I am complete
In your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes
I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
The heat I see in your eyes
In your eyes in your eyes…

Left of Center

Left of Center

performed by Suzanne Vega

If you want me
You can find me
Left of center
Off of the strip
In the outskirts
In the fringes
In the corner
Out of the grip
When they ask me
“What are you looking at?”
I always answer
“Nothing much” (not much)
I think they know that
I’m looking at them
I think they think
I must be out of touch
But I’m only
In the outskirts
And in the fringes
On the edge
And off the avenue
And if you want me
You can find me
Left of center
Wondering about you
I think that somehow
Somewhere inside of us
We must be similar
If not the same
So I continue
To be wanting you
Left of center
Against the grain
If you want me
You can find me
Left of center
Off of the strip
In the outskirts
In the fringes
In the corner
Out of the grip
When they ask me
“What are you looking at?”
I always answer
“Nothing much” (not much)
I think they know that
I’m looking at them
I think they think
I must be out of touch
But I’m only
In the outskirts
And in the fringes
On the edge
And off the avenue
And if you want me
You can find me
Left of center
Wondering about you
Wondering about you
