Song lyrics (reprise 2)

Well, I had to give up on a couple of these. I think everyone must have been getting tired of this game by the time I got around to posting it. :P

1. Well I love the way we communicate
Your eyes focus on my funny lip shape…
But what if I’m a mermaid in these jeans of yours
“Silent All These Years” by Tori Amos ~ antbee, lilac_bearry

2. I hear your voice, it's like an angel sighing
I have no choice, I hear your voice
“Like a Prayer” by Madonna ~ redwood7, samothrace_jp, lilac_bearry, springdove

3. Now laughing friends deride tears I cannot hide
“Smoke Gets in Your Eyes.” My version comes from a Musical Theatre Classics accompaniment CD, which means that the singer would be…me. redwood7, shipaholic

4. She looked at me funny, with compassion in her eyes
“Treasures in Heaven” by Burlap to Cashmere ~ solusfides, springdove

5. Where are you going? Where are you going?
Can you take me with you?
…Far beyond where the horizon lies,
And the land sinks into mellow blueness,
Oh, please! Take me with you.
“By My Side” from Godspell ~ springdove, markbrannan

6. With the dawn of redeeming grace
“Silent Night.” My version is sung by The Voices of Liberty and several high school choirs, one of which included, at the time, yours truly. solusfides, samothrace_jp, lilac_bearry, springdove

7. On a hillside grew a lovely rose,
A friend amid the wild
The sun and rain did bless the rose,
And [insert song title here].
“Nature Smiled” by Allen Koepke, sung by the 1997 FMEA All-State Women’s Chorus, which included (take a wild guess)…me. I’m not at all surprised no one got this.

8. December’s tragic drive when time is poetry
“Seven” by Sunny Day Real Estate ~ dtmoney

9. I hang my head and I advertise
A soul for sale or rent
I have no heart, I’m cold inside
I have no feelings left
[breaks into chorus, which basically repeats the title over and over again]
“Save Me” by Queen ~ antbee, solusfides

10. The words that he spoke made the people assume
There wasn't too much left in the upper room
“Jesus Freak” by DC Talk ~ solusfides, springdove

11. I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left
I should be crying but I just can’t let it show
I should be hoping but I can’t stop thinking
Of all the things I should’ve said that I never said,
All the things I should’ve done that I never did,
All the things I should’ve given, but I didn’t
“This Woman’s Work” by Kate Bush ~ antbee

12. I’ve gotta hand it to you, you’ve got one heart ten times divided
Did you cut yourself in pieces to get them all inside you?
Dream about, or can’t you see?
She’s only shining bright ‘cause she’s so out of reach
You dream about the seven seas
I’m staying home each night, makin’ love to [insert song title here]
“My Fidelity” by Heather Nova; her more mainstream song was “Walk This World”

13. I’ll bring you more than a song,
For a song in itself is not what you have required
“Heart of Worship” by Matt Redman ~ dtmoney, solusfides, springdove

14. I said, “Somebody’s got to take care of him.”
I quit school, and that’s what I did
“Fast Car” by Tracy Chapman ~ piperx, samothrace_jp

15. I love him, but everyday I’m learning
All my life, I’ve only been pretending
“On My Own” from Les Miserables ~ solusfides, samothrace_jp, shipaholic, lilac_bearry, springdove

16. Yabba-dabba-lujah
“Cartoons” by Chris Rice ~ solusfides, springdove

17. I am city
I am the park
I am glow in the motherf***ing dark
I am shocked and I seethe
I don't want to believe no more…
Down on the boulevard children are sold
To pave the way for your streets of gold
“Golgotha Tenement Blues” by Machines of Loving Grace ~ No one got this, but markbrannan was able to tell it was from The Crow soundtrack.

18. Water, water everywhere, and I complain about my thirst
The perscription’s in my hand, while my pain I curse
“Too Tender” by Caedmon’s Call ~ solusfides, springdove

19. Lord, I’m walking, and I’m not taking anything with me
And I’m on this road, and the voices are calling, but I’m not listening…
When everything’s left unsaid
“Let the dead [insert song title here],” little brother
“Get up and take your bed.”
Even when your last tear is shed,
“Follow me.”
“Bury the Dead” by Wedding Party ~ springdove, solusfides

20. On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean
“Carry On Wayward Son” by Kansas ~ redwood7

And the winners are:
1st place ~ springdove
2nd place ~ solusfides
3rd place ~ Tie between lilac_bearry and samothrace_jp

In other news, the play that I’m in, which I think I mentioned once on a previous entry, is coming up this weekend. We had our first dress rehearsal tonight. I am pleased to say it was not a total disaster. We have another dress rehearsal tomorrow, the night off Wednesday, and then shows Thurs-Sat. *sigh* It’s going to be a long week. But it’s fun. I do enjoy being a part of a theatre production every now and then, even if it does take a lot of energy.
