LAKE - No Wonder I

(Emlen called Minoko a "pesoptimist" once. This song properly expresses that mentality.)

No wonder I feel a thousand petals
I'm walking by cherry blossoms in the sky
Feels exciting to be living
No wonder I feel so tired of talking
There's so much to take in today

I'm humming like washing machines through the window
And feeling glad that I saw you in your favorite jeans
Feels so friendly when you say "Hello"
No wonder I want to wrap you up and take you home
I'm looking forward to the chance to meet again
But then again it all depends

Suddenly I'm not so sure
That intentions can be pure
If I could just throw all my doubts into the wind
I think that they'd come back again

Every cloud has a silver lining
Every cloud has a silver lining
Every cloud has a silver lining
Every cloud has a silver lining

[i:ac4ccb478f]And you're a cherry blossom
You're about to bloom
You look so pretty, but you're gone so soon[/i:ac4ccb478f]

Where will you go? By Evanescence.
Martyr to Phoenix.



You're too important for anyone..
You play the role of all you long to be...
But, I...
I know who you really are..
You're the one who cries when you're alone.

But where will you go
With no one left to save you from yourself?
You can't escape, you can't escape..

You think that I can't see right through your eyes
Scared to death to face reality
No one seems to hear your hidden cries
You're left to face yourself alone...

But where will you go
With no one left to save you from yourself?
You can't escape the truth...
I realize you're afraid,
but you can't abandon everyone...

You can't escape, you don't want to escape...

I'm so sick of speaking words that no one understands
Is it clear enough that you can't live your whole life all alone?
I can hear you in a whisper
but you can't even hear me screaming!

But where will you go
With no one left to save you from yourself?
You can't escape, you can't escape..
I realize you're afraid
But you can't reject the whole world....
You can't escape, you won't escape, you can't escape
You don't want to escape....

My body's covered in teeth marks, your bite's worse than your bark

You're gonna go far, Kid. By The Offspring
Emlen to Myles


Show me how to lie, you're getting better all the time
And turning all against one, is an art that's hard to teach
Another clever word, sets off an unsuspecting herd
And as you step back into line, a mob jumps to their feet

Now dance f'cker, dance
Man he never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you,

And now you steal away
Take him out today
Nice work you did
You're gonna go far, kid.


With a thousand eyes and a good disguise
Hit 'em right between the eyes, hit 'em right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say,
See the lightning in your eyes,
See 'em running for their lives

Slowly out of line and drifting closer in your sights
So play it out, I'm wide awake
It's a scene about me

There's something in your way, and now someone is gonna pay
And if you can't get what you want, well it's all because of me

Now dance f'cker, dance
Man, I never had a chance
And no one even knew, it was really only you

And now you'll lead the way,
Show the light of day,
Nice work you did,
You're gonna go far, kid.

TRUST DECIEVED

With a thousand eyes and a good disguise
Hit 'em right between the eyes, hit 'em right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say,
See the lightning in your eyes,
See 'em running for their lives

Now, dance f'cker dance,
He never had a chance...
And no one even knew, it was really only you
So dance, f'cker dance
I never had a chance,
It was really only you

With a thousand eyes and a good disguise
Hit 'em right between the eyes, hit 'em right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say,
See the lightning in your eyes,
See 'em running for their lives
Clever alibies, Lord of the Flies
Hit 'em right between the eyes, hit 'em right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say,
See the lightning in your eyes,
See 'em running for their lives
[color=darkblue:62a9c25c0e]I alone am the one you don't know
You need, you don't know you need me

Kings of Leon - Supersoaker

My motivation is gone too soon
Good vibrations all over you
Act like you mean it, you mean it
You gotta story you never tell
Down in the Delta, they're ringing bells
I've never seen it, seen it
Back of my mind, I'm on my way
I see through smiles on every face
I don't believe it, believe it

?Cause I?m the super soaker, red white and blew ?em all away
With the kisses unclean as the words that you say

I don?t mind sentimental girls at times
Miss don?t walk away, walk away

The flags are flying across the Plains
I got a secret picking in my brain
I wanna see you, see you
Yes, the sign is on my face
I don?t know my home
I don?t know my place
I just wanna be there, be there

?Cause I?m the super soaker, red white and blew ?em all away
With the kisses unclean as the words that you say

I don?t mind sentimental girls at times
Miss don?t walk away, walk away
I don?t mind sentimental girls at times
Miss don?t walk away, whoa oh oh

I don?t mind sentimental girls at times
I just lay it on the line, on the line

I don?t mind sentimental girls at times
Miss don?t walk away, walk away
I don?t mind sentimental girls at times
Miss don?t walk away, oh oh oh oh

Modest Mouse --Bukowski

Woke up this morning and it seemed to me,
 that every night turns out to be
 A little more like Bukowski.
 And yeah, I know he's a pretty good read.
 But God who'd wanna be?
 God who'd wanna be such an assh*le?
 God who'd wanna be?
 God who'd wanna be such an assh*le?

 Well we sat on the edge of the river,
 the crowd screamed, "Sacrifice the liver!"
 If God takes life, he's an Indian giver.
 So tell me now why, you'll tell me never.
 Who would wanna be?
 Who would wanna be such a control freak?
 Well who would wanna be?
 Who would wanna be such a control freak?

 Well see what you wanna see. You should see it all.
 Well take what you want from me. You deserve it all.
 Nine times out of ten our hearts just get dissolved.
 Well I want a better place or just a better way to fall.

 But one time out of ten, everything is perfect for us all.
 Well I want a better place or just a better way to fall.
 Here we go!

 If God controls the land and disease,
 keeps a watchful eye on me,
 If he's really so damn mighty,
 my problem is I can't see,
 well who would wanna be?
 Who would wanna be such a control freak?
 Well who would wanna be?
 Who would wanna be such a control freak?

 Evil home stereo, what good songs do you know?
 Evil me, oh yeah I know, what good curves can you throw?

 Well all that icing and all that cake,
 I can't make it to your wedding, but I'm sure I'll be at your wake.
 You were talk, talk, talk, talkin' in circles that day,
 when you get to the point make sure that I'm still awake, OK?

 Went to bed and didn't see
 why every day turns out to be
 a little bit more like Bukowski.
 And yeah, I know he's a pretty good read.
 But God who'd wanna be?
 God who'd wanna be such an assh*le?
I'd give anything just to be the tin man
'Cause I wouldn't have a heart, and I wouldn't need a soul.

Modest Mouse-- Float On.

I backed my car into a cop car the other day
 Well he just drove off sometimes life's OK
 I ran my mouth off a bit too much oh what did I say
 Well you just laughed it off it was all OK

 And we'll all float on OK
 And we'll all float on OK
 And we'll all float on OK
 And we'll all float on any way well

 Well, a fake Jamaican took every last dime with that scam
 It was worth it just to learn from sleight-of-hand
 Bad news comes don't you worry even when it lands
 Good news will work its way to all them plans
 We both got fired on exactly the same day
 Well we'll float on good news is on the way

 And we'll all float on OK
 And we'll all float on OK
 And we'll all float on OK
 And we'll all float on alright
 Already we'll all float on
 Now don't you worry we'll all float on
 Alright already we'll all float on
 Alright don't worry we'll all float on

 And we'll all float on alright
 Already we'll all float on
 Alright don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy
 We'll all float on alright
 Already we'll all float on
 Alright already we'll all float on
 OK don't worry we'll all float on
 Even if things get heavy we'll all float on
 Alright already we'll all float on
 Don't you worry we'll all float on
 All float on

Adele-- Hiding my heart.

This how the story went,
I met someone by accident
Who blew me away, blew me away
It was in the darkest of my days,
When you took my sorrows and you took my pain
And buried them away, buried them away

I wish I could lay down beside you,
When the day is done
And wake up to your face
Against the morning sun
But like everything I've ever known
You'll disappear someday
So I'll spend my whole life hiding
My heart away


Dropped you off at the train station
Put a kiss on the top of your head
And watched you away, watched you away
And I went on home to my sky scrapers
and neon lights and wedding papers
that I call home, I call that home..


I wish I could lay down beside you,
When the day is done
And wake up to your face
Against the morning sun
But like everything I've ever known
You'll disappear someday
So I'll spend my whole life hiding
My heart away

Woke up feeling heavy-hearted
I'm going back to where I started
The morning rain, morning rain
and though I wish that you were here
On that same old road that brought me here
It's calling me home, calling home...

I wish I could lay down beside you,
When the day is done
And wake up to your face
Against the morning sun
But like everything I've ever known
You'll disappear someday
So I'll spend my whole life hiding
My heart away
I can spend my whole life hiding, my heart away...
I'd give anything just to be the tin man
'Cause I wouldn't have a heart, and I wouldn't need a soul.

"Monster" by Meg Myers

I got to know that your heart beats fast and
I got to know I'm the only one for you
What have I become?
I'm a f*cking monster
When all I wanted was something beautiful

My love too much
Your love not enough
My love too much
Your love...

Oh, what it takes out of me to lay by your side
Oh, how it aches and it aches
You make me wanna die
I gotta kill you, my love
I gotta kill you, my love
Oh, what it takes out of me to lay by your side

You said forever
Now you look right through me
You said forever
Did your words fall short like you?
What have I done?
I'm a f*cking monster
When all I wanted was something beautiful

My love too much
Your love not enough
My love too much
Your love...

Oh, what it takes out of me to lay by your side
Oh, how it aches and it aches
You make me wanna die
I gotta kill you, my love
I gotta kill you, my love
Oh, what it takes out of me to lay by your side

My love too much
Your love not enough
My love too much
Your love...

"Wicked Game" by Chris Isaak

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No, I want to fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I want to fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
With you
(This world is only gonna break your heart)

What a wicked game to play, to make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say, you never felt this way
What a wicked thing to do, to make me dream of you

And I want to fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I want to fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
With you

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No, I want to fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I want to fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
With you
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I...
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
(This world is only gonna break your heart)

Nobody loves no one

"Lucky Man" by Emerson, Lake & Palmer

He had white Horses
And ladies by the score
All dressed in satin
And waiting by the door

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

White lace and feathers
They made up his bed
A gold covered mattress
On which he was led

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

He went to fight wars
For his country and his king
Of his honor and his glory
The people would sing

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

A bullet had found him
His blood ran as he cried
No money could save him
So he laid down and he died

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

"Stay Here Tonight" by ENRIQUE IGLESIAS

I know it's late and you're tired
And we'd been talking for hours here
You don't have to tell me

I see that look in your eyes
And I know soon we'll say our goodbyes oh yeah
I feel it coming

And I hear you take a deep breath
And my hands are starting to sweat
I don't want you to
I don't want you to leave yeah

Stay here tonight, stay here tonight
'cause when you're around me everything's right, don't go
Oh, don't leave me alone
Stay here tonight, stay here tonight
I wanna hold you in my arms show you what that's like, don't go
I need you, I need you

You grab your coat and I'm dying
But I know you're still deciding, yeah
'cause nobody's moving
Time stops and everything's quiet
I'm hanging on for my life and you
You don't even see it

And then you come in closer
And baby it's not over
Till I hear you say, till I hear you say
Goodnight oh yeah

Stay here tonight, stay here tonight
'cause when you're around me everything's right, don't go
Oh, don't leave me alone
Stay here tonight, stay here tonight
I wanna hold you in my arms show you what that's like, don't go
I need you, I need you

Something about you saves me
Something about you makes me feel like I'm alive

Stay here tonight, stay here tonight
'cause when you're around me everything's right, don't go
Don't leave me alone

Stay here tonight, stay here tonight
'cause when you're around me everything's right, don't go
Oh, don't leave me alone
Stay here tonight, stay here tonight
I wanna hold you in my arms show you what that's like, don't go
I need you, I need you

Stay with me tonight, I need you, Stay with me tonight, I need you
Stay...

((If Logan were a cowboy, this is how he would sound, singing this to his siblings.))

"Hey Brother" by Avicii

Hey, brother, there?s an endless road to re-discover
Hey, sister, know the water's sweet but blood is thicker
Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you
There?s nothing in this world I wouldn't do

Hey, brother, do you still believe in one another?
Hey, sister, do you still believe in love, I wonder?
Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you
There?s nothing in this world I wouldn't do

What if I'm far from home?
Oh, brother, I will hear you call
What if I lose it all?
Oh, sister, I will help you out
Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you
There?s nothing in this world I wouldn't do

Hey, brother, there?s an endless road to re-discover
Hey, sister, do you still believe in love I wonder?
Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you
There?s nothing in this world I wouldn't do

What if I'm far from home?
Oh, brother, I will hear you call
What if I lose it all?
Oh, sister, I will help you out
Oh, if the the sky comes falling down, for you
There?s nothing in this world I wouldn?t do

"Sundown" by Gordon Lightfoot

I can see her lyin' back in her satin dress
In a room where you do what you don't confess

Sundown, you better take care
If I find you been creepin' 'round my back stairs
Sundown, you better take care
If I find you been creepin' 'round my back stairs

She's been lookin' like a queen in a sailor's dream
And she don't always say what she really means

Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain
Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain

I can picture every move that a man could make
Gettin' lost in her lovin' is your first mistake

Sundown, you better take care
If I find you been creepin' 'round my back stairs
Sometimes I think it's a sin
When I feel like I'm winnin' when I'm losin' again

I can see her lookin' fast in her faded jeans
She's a hard lovin' woman, got me feelin' mean

Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain
Sundown, you better take care
If I find you been creepin' 'round my back stairs

Sundown, you better take care
If I find you been creepin' 'round my back stairs
Sometimes I think it's a sin
When I feel like I'm winnin' when I'm losin' again

Dixie Chicks-- I'll take care of you.
Phoenix for Addie


Times Are Hard And Rents Are High
What Can A Working Girl Do
But Struggle Through Another Day
Then I'll Take Care Of You

Nights Are Long And Dreams Are Cold
If They're All You Wake Up To
But Should You Rise With Crying Eyes
Then I'll Take Care Of You

So Let Them Talk About Us
Let Them Call Us Funny Things
People Sometimes Do
Oh I Don't Care As Long
As You Know I Love You
Oh, And You Know I Do

I'll Be There, But You Might Not See Me
It's Never Easy To Get Through
But When The Laughter Dies Away
Then I'll Take Care Of You

So Let Them Talk About Us
Let Them Call Us Funny Things
People Sometimes Do
Oh I Don't Care As Long
As You Know I Love You
Oh, And You Know I Do


I'll Be There, But You Might Not See Me
It's Never Easy To Get Through
But When The Laughter Dies Away
Then I'll Take Care Of You
I'd give anything just to be the tin man

Something I'm not--Megadeth

 Your mind tells you that you've lost your confidence
 You're drifting and you don't believe in anyone
 To lose what little you have left to be proud of,
 Afraid you can't do this again, ah!

 You said that nothing come in-between us
 The way of getting things we wanted done
 Then enissophobia held you under it's influence
 Until you compromised your style

 Everything about you has been one big charade
 What will you do now that the well's run dry?
 To sell out all your friends and stab them in the back
 It's something that you are; it's something that I'm not

 When you forced me into doing what you love
 Mark my words no one loves you very much,  
 And when you tried to change me and tried to replace me
 I couldn't help but end just hating you, hmm!

 Being a fraud can only last so long, you should know
 Till what you sensed as a child returns,
 To choke out the voice that told you ?money and the fame?
Would fill the crater that you dug for yourself

 Unlike you I'm no vision to myself, lest you forget
 You didn't ever make medal, buddy; medal made you
 To crush and run over everyone along the way
 It's something that you are; it's something that I'm not

 A stranger to yourself, ha! you pissed me off again
 I won't be driven by your needs anymore
 What you'd become to do or be is clear to see for me
 It's something that you are; something that I'm not

 It makes me sick to hear you say you ?love me?
I know you only love what I can do for you
 If you were the one that was leading the charge
 Would you notice if I missed a day or two? But that's impossible!

 We all laughed at the parodies that you've become
 Now your pain slowly paid back has begun
 So, accept my resignation, or in your words ?betrayal?
Before it gets much worse, end this self-sabotage

 Something that I'm not, something that you are, something I'm not

 Something that I'm not, something that you are, something I'm not
 Something that you are, something I'm not...
Yet.
