Jonathan Richman


That Summer Feeling


When there's things to do not because you gotta
When you run for love not because you oughta
When you trust your friends with no reason notta
The joy I've named shall not be tamed

And that summer feeling is gonna haunt you one day in your life

When the cool of the pond makes you drop down on it
When the smell of the lawn makes you flop down on it
When the teenage car gets the cop down on it
That time is here for one more year

And that summer feeling is gonna haunt you one day in your life

If you've forgotten what I'm naming
You're gonna long to reclaim it one day
Because that summer feeling is gonna haunt you one day in your life
And if you wait until your older
A sad resentment will smolder one day
And then that summer feeling is gonna haunt you
And that summer feeling's gonna taunt you
And then that summer feeling is gonna hurt you one day in your life

When even fourth grade starts looking good
Which you hated
And first grade's looking good too
Overrated
And you boys long for some little girl that you dated
Do you long for her or for the way you were?
That summer feeling is gonna haunt you the rest of your life

When the Oldsmobile has got the top down on it
When the catamaran has got the drop down on it
When the flat of the land has got the crop down on it
Some things look good before and some things never were
But that summer feeling is gonna haunt you one day in your life

Well when your friends are in town and they got time for you
When you and them are hanging around and they don't ignore you
When you say what you will
And they still adore you
If thats not appealing, its that summer feeling
That summer feeling is gonna haunt you one day in your life

Its gonna haunt you
Its gonna taunt you
You're gonna want this feeling inside one more time
Its gonna haunt you
Its gonna taunt you
You're gonna want this feeling inside one more time

When you're hangin around the park with the water fountain
And there's the little girl with the dirty ankles
But she's on the swings where all the dust is kickin up
And you remember the ankle locket
And the way she flirted with you
For all this time how come?
Well that summer feeling is gonna haunt you one day in your life

You'll throw away everything for it (2X)

When the playground that just was all dirt comes hauntin
And that little girl that called you a flirt
Memory comes tauntin
You pick these things apart they're not that appealin
You put them together and you'll get a certain feeling
That summer feeling is gonna haunt you one day in your life

THE JAM

"That's Entertainment"




A police car and a screamin' siren
Pneumatic drill and ripped-up concrete
A baby wailing, a stray dog howling
The screech of brakes and lamplight blinking

That's entertainment
That's entertainment

A smash of glass and the rumble of boots
An electric train and a ripped-up phone booth
Paint-splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat
Lights going out and a kick in the balls

I say that's entertainment
That's entertainment
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah

Days of speed and slow-time Mondays
Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday
Watching the news and not eating your tea
A freezing cold flat with damp on the walls

I say that's entertainment
That's entertainment
La la la la la
La la la la la

Waking up at 6 A.M. on a cool warm morning
Opening the windows and breathing in petrol
An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard
Watching the telly and thinking 'bout your holidays

That's entertainment
That's entertainment
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la

Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume
A hot summer's day and sticky black tarmac
Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away

That's entertainment
That's entertainment

Two lovers kissing masks a scream of midnight
Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude
Getting a cab and travelling on buses
Reading the grafitti about slashed-seat affairs

I say that's entertainment
That's entertainment
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah
La la la la la, ah

in honor of reading that Neil Peart has retired - my favorite Rush song.


Time Stand Still

I turn my back to the wind
To catch my breath before I start off again
Driven on without a moment to spend
To pass an evening with a drink and a friend

I let my skin get too thin, I'd like to pause
No matter what I pretend
Like some pilgrim who learns to transcend
Learns to live as if each step was the end

(Time stand still)
I'm not looking back
But I want to look around me now
(Time stand still)
See more of the people and the places that surround me now
Time stand still

Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Experience slips away
Experience slips away
Time stand still

I turn my face to the sun
Close my eyes
Let my defenses down
All those wounds that I can't get unwound

I let my past go too fast, no time to pause
If I could slow it all down
Like some captain, whose ship runs aground
I can wait until the tide comes around

(Time stand still)
I'm not looking back
But I want to look around me now
(Time stand still)
See more of the people and the places that surround me now

Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Make each impression a little bit stronger
Freeze this motion a little bit longer

(The innocence slips away)
(The innocence slips away)
Time stand still
Time stand still

I'm not looking back
But I want to look around me now
See more of the people and the places that surround me now
Time stand still

Summer's going fast, nights growing colder
Children growing up, old friends growing older
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger

Experience slips away
Experience slips away
The innocence slips away

One of my favouritest Train Drops of Jupiter

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's time to change, hey, hey, hey, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey, hey, hey
Now that she's back in the atmosphere
I'm afraid that she might think of me as plain old Jane
Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land
Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back to the milky way
And tell me, did Venus blow your mind
Was it everything you wanted to find
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there
Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken
Your best friend always sticking up for you, even when I know you're wrong
Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance five-hour phone
Conversation
The best soy latte that you ever had, and me
Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back toward the milky way
Tell me did you sail across the sun
Did you make it to the milky way to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated
Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
And did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
Nah nah nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah nah nah
And did you fall for a shooting star
Fall for a shooting star
Nah nah nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah nah nah
Or you lonely looking for yourself out there?

Dreamer {Bridge}

Well, work it out someday

If I could see something - You can see anything you want, boy
If I could be someone - You can be anyone, celebrate, boy
Well, if I could do something - You can do something
If I could do anything -

Can you do something out of this world?

Solar Fake - Under Control


There's a crack in the ice and it's coming after me
(It's coming after me)
Should I wait and not blink, or should I run and get away
(Run and get away)
But every will would need a force
And once again there will be another way out, just like every time
So I go drowning and see what's coming next
(See what's coming next)

I could go and have a drink with you, but I'm too bored
(I'm too bored)
Oh, it could be nice but that's not what I'm looking for, what you're looking for
So why not leave it all behind?
Well, it seems so draining just to think about it anyway
So I keep going and leave it all untouched
(Leave it all untouched)

I'm under control
I am well sedated and permanently sick
I'm under control
I don't care too much if I win or if I get tricked
I ran out of passion, but carry the weight
'til the end when I bury myself
Still under control, I'm taking it all from you

I go waste your time, like any other day
(Like any other day)
Seems I look forsaken, and I'll be either way
(I'll be either way)
And when I'm laughing it's my fault
And when I say that all these pictures on the wall are greyish anyway
I didn't mean it, they're only black and white
(Only black and white)

I'm under control
I am well sedated and permanently sick
I'm under control
I don't care too much if I win or if I get tricked
I ran out of passion, but carry the weight
'til the end when I bury myself
Still under control, I'm taking it all from you

Angela - The Lumineers

When you left this town, with your windows down
And the wilderness inside
Let the exits pass, all the tar and glass
'Til the road and sky align
The strangers in this town,
They raise you up just to cut you down
Oh Angela it's a long time coming
And your Volvo lights lit up green and white
With the cities on the signs
But you held your course to some distant war
In the corners of your mind
From the second time around
The only love I ever found
Oh Angela it's a long time coming
Home at last
Were you safe and warm in your coat of arms
With your fingers in a fist
Did you hear the notes, all those static codes
In the radio abyss?
Strangers in this town,
They raise you up just to cut you down
Oh Angela it's a long time coming
Oh Angela spent your whole life running
Home at last
Home at last
Vacancy, hotel room, lost in me, lost in you
Angela, on my knees, I belong, I believe
Home at last
Home at last
Home at last
Home at last
Home at last, hmm

Solar Fake - I Don't Want You In Here


You said I'm wrong while you explained me how I feel
But honestly, I never felt so much when you were here
And I don't mind you analyzing me again
But do you really think I wouldn't notice what you do?
Are you right? Well, I don't know...
But what still works for yourself is untrue

I can take it myself, I don't want you in here
Why don't you even understand what you do to me
I will find my own way, I don't want you in here

What's the point of dragging me back to reality again?

I feel alright, are you expecting me to talk?
'Cause I can't think about all the things that matter just to you
If I could raise my head I would just look away
I close my eyes and I wonder if there'll be another day

Am I wrong? Well, I don't know
But what works for myself remains true

I can take it myself, I don't want you in here
Why don't you even understand what you do to me
I will find my own way, I don't want you in here
What's the point of dragging me back to reality
Leave me alone, there's so much more you can regret
Please turn off the light before you go and I'll be home

I can take it myself, I don't want you in here
Why don't you even understand what you do to me
I will find my own way, I don't want you in here
What's the point of dragging me back to reality

I can take it myself, I don't want you in here
Why don't you even understand what you do to me
I will find my own way, I don't want you in here
What's the point of dragging me back to reality

I can take it myself, I don't want you in here
I will find my own way, I don't want you in here

this one was posted in fb today and it's been in my head ever since

Fire Away - Chris Stapleton

Honey load up your questions
And pick up your sticks and your stones
And pretend I'm a shelter for heartaches
That don't have a home
Choose the words that cut like a razor
And all that I'll say
Is fire away
Take your best shot
Show me what you got
Honey, I'm not afraid
Rear back and take aim
And fire away
Well, I wish I could say
That I've never been here before
But you know and I know
That I'll always come back for more
Your love might be my damnation
But I'll cry to my grave
Fire away
Take your best shot
Show me what you got
Honey, I'm not afraid
Rear back and take aim
And fire away
Ah, fire away
Take your best shot
Show me what you got
Honey, I'm not afraid
Rear back and take aim
And fire away
Fire away
Ah fire away
Fire away

somewhere over the rainbow way up high
there's a land that i heard of once in a lullaby
somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue
and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

someday i'll wish upon a star
and wake up where the clouds are far
behind me
where troubles melt like lemon drops
way above the chimney tops
that's where you'll find me

somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
birds fly over the rainbow
why then, oh, why can't i?

if happy little bluebirds fly
beyond the rainbow
why, oh, why can't i?

Rush - Face Up


You turn my head
I spin my wheels
Running on empty
You know how that feels

I'm on a roll now
Or is it a slide?
Can't be too careful
With that dangerous pride
If I could only reach that dial inside
And turn it up

Face up or you can only back down
Face up, hit the target, or you better hit the ground
Face up, there's still time to turn the game around
Face up, turn it up or turn that wild card down
Turn it up

Don't complain
Don't explain
I don't think my new resolve
Can stand the strain

I'm in a groove now
Or is it a rut?
I need some feedback
But all the lines are cut

I get so angry, but I keep my mouth shut
And turn it up

You get all squeezed-up inside
Like the days were carved in stone
You get all wired-up inside
And it's bad to be alone

You can go out, you can take a ride
And when you get out on your own
You get all smoothed-out inside
And it's good to be alone
Turn it up

Robyn Hitchcock - She's Doesn't Exist

I used to ring you and put down the phone
Once wore a hole in your dress
Even tried voodoo right outside your home
But these days I just couldn't care less

She doesn't exist anymore
She doesn't exist anymore

I let her go like the fool that I was
Thought I'd get over her soon
I smell her perfume when my eyes are closed
And I see her face in the moon

But she doesn't exist anymore
She doesn't exist anymore

I tell myself it would be different now
I wouldn't treat her that way
I wouldn't be me if she wasn't her
And it's far too late anyway

And she doesn't exist anymore
She doesn't exist anymore

Only inside you the ghost of a love
That is wordless and painful and old
There's no one else in the whole outside world
That matches to her in your soul

But she doesn't exist anymore
She doesn't exist anymore
