songs

December 29, 2004

(wow, second update today)
One song for me now and this summer, one song for me usually, and one song for the year. Not in that order.

Green Day “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”
I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don’t know where it goes
But it’s home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
and I’m the only one and I walk alone

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart’s the only thing that’s beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
‘Til then I walk alone

Aerosmith “Dream On”
Every time that I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by like dusk to dawn
Isn’t that the way
Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay

I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it’s everybody’s sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life’s in books’ written pages
Lived and learned from fools and from sages
You know it’s true
All these things come back to you

{Refrain}
Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good lord will take you away

Yeah,

Dream on, dream on, dream on
Dream until your dreams come true

REM “Daysleeper”
Receiving department, 3 a.m.
Staff cuts have socked up the overage
Directives are posted.
No callbacks, complaints.
Everywhere is calm.

Hong Kong is present
Taipei awakes
All talk of circadian rhythm

I see today with a newsprint fray
My night is colored headache grey
Daysleeper

The bull and the bear are marking their territories
They’re leading the blind with their international glories

I’m the screen, the blinding light
I’m the screen, I work at night

I see today with a newsprint fray
My night is colored headache grey
Don’t wake me with so much.
The ocean machine is set to nine
I’ll squeeze into heaven and valentine
My bed is pulling me,
Gravity
Daysleeper. Daysleeper.
Daysleeper. Daysleeper. Daysleeper.

*laughs* they sound so depressing, and I’m not really feeling depressed…

    Hey Marie!
    I love “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” and I’m not depressed either. Just wanted to say good choice, and I hope you had a good holiday!
