Well my dear Everything I’ve got to say In one minute Is that what you want to hear My opinion about Paintings and books Music, iphones, films and tv crooks (one minute song) Politics, gardening, IT and sport Fashion, food I think this song Will be too short
Love Is Good 01:29
It doesn’t matter If you’re here or there It plays with your heart And makes you aware Love is good Love is good You can feel it everywhere It is in the ground and in the air Love is good Love is hood If you believe In one god or more There is always someone To open up a door Love is good Love is good I can sing this same old song The whole day long Love is goooood
Stroking my face Touching my arms Burning my fears away Pushing away the clouds I’m waiting for the sun To rise I’m in a tunnel Driving to the light I need a friend To push away the night
She's A Song 01:33
She married that actor Who is a bit of a freak With his strange religion And his small physique Somewhere in Manhattan That’s where she can be found A pool filled with beauty And talent all around She’s a singer in a band She’s an actress who understands She‘s a model She’s a model She’s a song She married this singer Dreadlocks over his eyes They had one kid Before she exposed his lies Somewhere in France That’s where she can be found A pool filled with beauty And talent all around She sings in a band With a name like vest I follow her around But I’m not obsessed Somewhere in Sweden That’s where she can be found A pool filled with beauty And talent all around
The urge to leave Sometimes it’s strong Live seems taking place Somewhere else I am still here Where I was born I can’t seem to get away Fear of change is in the way How life will be How life will be How exciting life will be In another city In a real city When I drive around the city Detours on B roads Houses on the waterfront I could live there someday Fear is in my way
It’s a pretty long road A desolate highway No one the pass by Nowhere to go It’s a small farms village A midtown city Labour day and night In the local mines Social inequality can be overcome I am a Bruce Springsteen song Indian summer Something is in the air A sultry kiss A small affair I am a Bruce Springsteen song
Everything changes Nothing remains the same You become older No one to blame Try to participate Or stick to the past It’s up to you Be first or last Why do they’ve got To change everything My old school The corner shop The bookstore I loved It’s all gone Why do they’ve got To change everything Is it to prevent Life from getting boring
Moody in the morning Never say hello Silent like a wall Another all-time low You need to be wiser You need to be nicer Every day Every way I trust you with my secrets I present you my art Slippery like Teflon And you break my heart I need to be wiser But you need to be nicer Every day
Winning the lottery Making a promotion My favorite team winning the soccer league Rainless vacations Faithfull politicians Or a garden without weed I’ve waited a long time It will never happen Feeling happy A longterm relationship Is that so much To ask for If You Don’t Expect Much (You’ll Be Happy)
Complicate the complications on a crawl to crazed disconnect from reality, and you’ll be amazed you’re losing it you’re losing it no matter how many pills you take you’re losing it you want to flee disconnect from your family it’s all a lie you’re the enemy
lyrics by Complex Is Simple: Taste in me my own zest, tell me when I'm at my best These aren't any old chest, lips, legs, hair, But I'm hardly there without you Even though I'm bare, without you and your magic hands . . . Everything tastes bland lyrics by Capricious Angel: I remember the salt of your lips The sweet tang as you sighed The sugar of your smile I remember the shape of your hips The dark glow of your eyes That made it worthwhile I remember the dreams that we dreamed The hopes that we shared I remember how your eyes lit up How it seemed you really cared
When I drive I stare at the distance Avoiding potholes It’s a bumpy ride Why is the road so long My life seems one long drive Why is the road so long Try to comply With the curves in the road Sometimes it’s a highway Sometimes an unpaved path Why is the road so long My life seems one long drive Being overtaken Left and right Why is the road so long And when I take a detour Forced by a traffic jam I feel freed Into the wide open
