Dennis DeYoung of Styx, "Desert Moon", No 3, November 1984

Dennis DeYoung of Styx - "Desert Moon"



Lyrics

"Is this the train to Desert Moon?" was all she said
But I knew I'd heard that stranger's voice before
I turned to look into her eyes, but she moved away
She was standing in the rain
Trying hard to speak my name
They say first love never runs dry

The waiter poured our memories into tiny cups
We stumbled over words we longed to hear
We talked about the dreams we'd lost, or given up
When a whistle cut the night
And shook silence from our lives
As the last train rolled towards the dune

Those summer nights when we were young
We bragged of things we'd never done
We were dreamers, only dreamers
And in our haste to grow too soon
We left our innocence on Desert Moon
We were dreamers, only dreamers
On Desert Moon, on Desert Moon
On Desert Moon, Desert Moon

I still can hear the whisper of the summer night
It echoes in the corners of my heart
The night we stood and waited for the desert train
All the words we meant to say
All the chances sw…

Starry Night

Vincent

Don Mclean

Starry, starry night,
paint your palette blue and grey,
look out on a summer’s day,
with eyes that know the darkness in my soul.

Shadows on the hills,
sketch the trees and the daffodils,
catch the breeze and the winter chills,
in colors on the snowy linen land.

Now I understand
what you tried to say to me,
how you suffered for your sanity,
how you tried to set them free.

They would not listen,
they did not know how,
perhaps they’ll listen now.

Starry, starry night,
flaming flowers that brightly blaze,
swirling clouds in violet haze,
reflect in Vincent’s eyes of blue,
colors changing hue,
morning fields of amber grain,
weathered faces lined in pain,
are soothed beneath the artist’s loving hands.

( Chorus )

For they could not love you,
but still your love was true,
and when no hope was left in sight,
on that starry, starry night,
you took your life,
as lovers often do.
but I could have told you, Vincent,
this world was never meant for one
as beautiful as you.

Starry, starry night,
portraits hung in empt…

Marcy Playground - Sex and Candy

Marcy Playground - Sex and Candy



Lyrics

Hangin' round downtown by myself
And I had so much time
To sit and think about myself
And then there she was
Like double cherry pie
Yeah there she was
Like disco superfly
I smell sex and candy here
Who's that lounging in my chair
Who's that casting devious stares
In my direction
Mama this surely is a dream

Hangin' round downtown by myself
And I had too much caffeine
And I was thinkin' 'bout myself
And then there she was
In platform double suede
Yeah there she was
Like disco lemonade
I smell sex and candy here
Who's that lounging in my chair
Who's that casting devious stares
In my direction
Mama this surely is a dream
Mama this surely is a dream
I smell sex and candy here
Who's that lounging in my chair
Who's that casting devious stares
In my direction
Mama this surely is a dream
Mama this surely is a dream
Yeah mama this must be my dream

Rick Derringer of The McCoys, "Rock & Roll, Hootchie Koo"



Lyrics

I couldn't stop moving when it first took hold
It was a warm spring night at the old town hall
There was a group called The Jokers they were laying it down
But you know I'm never gonna lose that funky sound.

Rock and roll hoochie koo
Truck on out and spread the news.

Mosquitoes start buzzing 'bout this time of year
I'm going out back said she'll meet me there
We were rolling in the grass that grows behind the barn
You know my ears started ringing like a fire alarm.

Rock and roll hoochie koo
Lordy mama light my fuse
Rock and roll hoochie koo
Truck on out and spread the news
Yeah somebody say keep on rockin'?

I hope you all know what I'm talkin' about
The way she wiggles that thing it really knocks me out
Getting higher all the time I hope you all are too
C'mon on a little closer gonna do it to you.

Rock and roll hoochie koo
Lordy mama light my fuse
Rock and roll hoochie koo
Truck on out and sprea…

Don't Cry For Me, Argentina - Jane Zhang (Zhang LiangYing)

Don't Cry For Me, Argentina - Jane Zhang (Zhang LiangYing)



Lyrics

Lyrics by Tim Rice, music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

It won't be easy, you'll think it strange
When I try to explain how I feel
That I still need your love after all that I've done

You won't believe me
All you will see is a girl you once knew
Although she's dressed up to the nines
At sixes and sevens with you

I had to let it happen, I had to change
Couldn't stay all my life down at heel
Looking out of the window, staying out of the sun

So I chose freedom
Running around, trying everything new
But nothing impressed me at all
I never expected it to

Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance

And as for fortune, and as for fame
I never invited them in
Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired

They are illusions
They are not the solutions they promised to be
The answer was here all the time
I love you and hope you…

Dangerous Games by Lora Leigh

Image
My latest read is Dangerous Games by Lora Leigh. This story is an erotic romance with BDSM theme. The hero is a Navy SEAL and the heroine is a DEA agent. I enjoyed. How could I not? Ever since Viggo Mortensen faced off with G.I. Jane, I've wanted one of my very own. ;)

The book got at least one not so pleasing reader review, and I don't think it was the books fault. I was wandering around Amazon.com and found on February 22, 2007 by April C. Faure (hard to link to those reviews, but you can get to the book's page through cover and look for the review if you're intersted). April said she was mislead by the cover. She didn't realize the book contained BDSM, and thought she was purchasing more mainstream romantic suspense.

I read this author and knew what I was in for. But that reader's point reminds me that when New York publishers started publishing erotic romance and picked up ePublished erotic romance authors, that they didn't pick up the ePublisher's ha…

My Heart Will Go by Celine Dion

My Heart Will Go by Celine Dion



Lyrics

Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you,
That is how I know you go on

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go till we're one

Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold to
In my life we'll always go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

There is some love that will not go away

You're here, there's nothing I fear,
And I know that my heart will go on
We'll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

This one is kind of gross at the end!
