Two Of Hearts – Stacey Q

Two of Hearts by Stacey Q
.
I-I-I-I-I need you
I-I-I-I-I need you
I never said I wasn’t gonna tell nobody
No baby
But desperate lover, I can’t keep it to myself
Oh no
When we’re together it’s like hot coals in a fire
Oh baby
My body’s burning so come on heat my desire
Come on come on
Two of hearts
Two hearts that beat as one
Two of hearts
I need you, I need you
Two of hearts
Two hearts that beat as one
Two of hearts
Come on, come on
People get jealous ’cause we always stay together
Yeah baby
I guess they really want a love like yours and mine
Together forever
I never thought that I could ever be this happy
Yeah baby
My prayers were answered, boy you came in the nick of time
Oh
I got this feeling that you’re going to stay
I never knew that it could happen this way
Before I met you I was falling apart
But now at last I really know we’re made of
Two of hearts
Two hearts that beat as one
Two of hearts
I need you, I need you
Two of hearts
Two hearts that beat as one
Two of hearts
Come on, come on
I never said I wasn’t gonna tell nobody
No baby
But desperate lover, I can’t keep it to myself
Oh no
When we’re together it’s like hot coals in a fire
Oh baby
My body’s burning so come on heat my desire
Oh
I got this feeling that you’re going to stay
I never knew that it could happen this way
Before I met you I was falling apart
But now at last I really know we’re made of
Two of hearts
Two hearts that beat as one
Two of hearts
I need you, I need you
Two of hearts
Two hearts that beat as one
Two of hearts
Come on, come on
Two of hearts
Two hearts that beat as one
Two of hearts
I need you, I need you
Two of hearts
Two hearts that beat as one
Two of hearts
Come on, come on
Two of hearts
Two hearts that beat as one
Two of hearts
I need you, I need you
Two of hearts
Two hearts that beat as one
Two of hearts
Come on, come on

The Promise by When In Rome
.
If you need a friend, don’t look to a stranger
You know in the end, I’ll always be there
But when you’re in doubt, and when you’re in danger
Take a look all around, and I’ll be there
I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
But if you’ll wait around awhile, I’ll make you fall for me
I promise, I promise you I will
When your day is through, and so is your temper
You know what to do, I’m gonna always be there
Sometimes if I shout, it’s not what’s intended
These words just come out, with no cross to bear
I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
But if you’ll wait around awhile, I’ll make you fall for me
I promise, I promise you
I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
And if I had to walk the world, I’d make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will
I gotta tell you, need to tell you, got to tell you, I’ve got to tell you
I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
But if you’ll wait around awhile, I’ll make you fall for me
I promise, I promise you
I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
And if I had to walk the world, I’d make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will
I will
I will

In a Big Country by Big Country
.
I’ve never seen you look like this without a reason
Another promise fallen through
Another season passes by you
I never took the smile away from anybody’s face
And that’s a desperate way to look
For someone who is still a child
In a big country dreams stay with you
Like a lover’s voice fires the mountainside
Stay alive, here we go
I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered
But you can’t stay here with every single hope you had shattered
I’m not expecting to grow flowers in a desert
But I can live and breathe
And see the sun in wintertime
In a big country dreams stay with you
Like a lover’s voice fires the mountainside
Stay alive
In a big country dreams stay with you
Like a lover’s voice fires the mountainside
Stay alive
So take that look out of here it doesn’t fit you
Because it’s happened doesn’t mean you’ve been discarded
Pull up your head off the floor, come up screaming
Cry out for everything you ever might have wanted
I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered
But you can’t stay here with every single hope you had shattered, see ya
I’m not expecting to grow flowers in a desert
But I can live and breathe
And see the sun in wintertime
In a big country dreams stay with you
Like a lover’s voice fires the mountainside
Stay alive
Ha, ha
In a big country dreams stay with you
Like a lover’s voice fires the mountainside
Stay alive
In a big country dreams stay with you
Like a lover’s voice fires the mountainside
Stay alive

Music Monday – Chevelle

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

Today I am sharing two songs by Chevelle – The Red and Vitamin R (Leading Us Along)

 

 

 

 

 

The Red by Chevelle:
.
They say freak,
When you’re singled out,
The red,
Well it filters through.
So lay down,
The threat is real,
When his sight,
Goes red again.
Seeing red again,
Seeing red again.
This change,
He won’t contain,
Slip away,
To clear your mind,
When asked,
Who made it show (who made it show),
The truth,
He gives into most.
So lay down,
The threat is real,
When his sight,
Goes red again.
So lay down,
The threat is real,
When his sight,
Goes red again.
So lay down,
The threat is real,
When his sight,
Goes red again.
Seeing red again!
Seeing red again!
Seeing red again!
Seeing red again!
Seeing red again!
Seeing red again!
Seeing red again!
Seeing red!
They say freak, When you’re singled out,
The red, it filters through.

Vitamin R (Leading Us Along) by Chevelle
.
Some will learn, many do
Cover up or spread it out
Turn around, had enough
Pick and choose, or pass it on
Buying in, heading for
Suffer now or suffer then
It’s bad enough, I want the fear
Need the fear
’cause he’s alone
(and he has become)
He’s alone
(and he has become)
Well, if they’re making it (making it)
Then they’re pushing it (pushing it)
And they’re leading us, along
The hassle of (hassle of)
All the screaming fits (screaming fits)
That panic makes, remorse
After all, what’s the point?
Course levitation is possible
If you’re a fly, achieved and gone
There’s time for this and, so much more
It’s typical, create a world
A special place of my design
To never cope, or never care
Just use the key cause
He’s alone
(and he has become)
He’s alone
(and he has become)
Well, if they’re making it (making it)
Then they’re pushing it (pushing it)
And they’re leading us, along
The hassle of (hassle of)
All the screaming fits (screaming fits)
That panic makes, remorse!
Over and over a slave, became
Over and over a slave, became
Over and over a slave, became
Over and over a slave
Well, if they’re making it (making it)
Then they’re pushing it (pushing it)
And they’re leading us, along
The hassle of (hassle of)
All the screaming fits (screaming fits)
That panic held, before
Well, if they’re making it (making it)
Then they’re pushing it (pushing it)
And they’re leading us, along
Like a cancer caused (cancer caused)
All the screaming fits (screaming fits)
And their panic makes, remorse

Music Monday – I Don’t Like Mondays

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

The song and video I am sharing today is:

 

I don’t like Mondays

I’m posting a couple of versions of the song, including the original. For years I listened to the song having no idea what it was really about. Then I found out it was about a 1979 Cleveland Elementary School shooting in San Diego. When the shooter was asked why she did it. She answered: “I don’t like Mondays.”

I Don’t Like Mondays -The Boomtown Rats
.
The silicon chip inside her head
Gets switched to overload
And nobody’s gonna go to school today
She’s going to make them stay at home
And daddy doesn’t understand it
He always said she was as good as gold
And he can see no reason
‘Cause there are no reasons
What reason do you need to be sure
Oh, oh, oh tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
I want to shoot
The whole day down
The Telex machine is kept so clean
As it types to a waiting world
And mother feels so shocked
Father’s world is rocked
And their thoughts turn to their own little girl
Sweet sixteen ain’t that peachy keen
Now, it ain’t so neat to admit defeat
They can see no reasons
‘Cause there are no reasons
What reason do you need oh, woah
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
I want to shoot
The whole day down
Down, down
Shoot it all down
All the playing’s stopped in the playground now
She wants to play with her toys a while
And school’s out early and soon we’ll be learning
And the lesson today is how to die
And then the bullhorn crackles
And the captain tackles
With the problems and the how’s and why’s
And he can see no reasons
‘Cause there are no reasons
What reason do you need to die, die
Oh, oh, oh and the silicon chip inside her head
Gets switched to overload
And nobody’s gonna go to school today
She’s going to make them stay at home
And daddy doesn’t understand it
He always said she was as good as gold
And he can see no reason
‘Cause there are no reasons
What reason do you need to be sure
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like, I don’t like, I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like, I don’t like, (tell me why) I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
I want to shoot, the whole day down, uh, uh, uh

Music Monday – Queen!!!!

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

 

Today my “Music Monday” is dedicated to Queen.

I recently watched the movie “Bohemian Rhapsody”.  I loved the movie and of course the soundtrack was awesome! It reminded me how much I love Queen.

The following are a few of my favorite Queen songs. I’m also including a clip of Jimmy Fallon interviewing, Rami Malek. I think Rami did a fantastic job portraying Freddie Mercury in the movie.

I hope you enjoy the clips!

 

RIP – Freddie Mercury

Queen – Radio Ga Ga

Queen – We Will Rock You

Queen & David Bowie – Under Pressure

 

 

 

Queen – Radio Ga Ga

I’d sit alone and watch your light
My only friend through teenage nights
And everything I had to know
I heard it on my radio
You gave them all those old time stars
Through wars of worlds invaded by Mars
You made ’em laugh, you made ’em cry
You made us feel like we could fly (radio)
So don’t become some background noise
A backdrop for the girls and boys
Who just don’t know or just don’t care
And just complain when you’re not there
You had your time, you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio (radio)
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio, what’s new?
Radio, someone still loves you
We watch the shows, we watch the stars
On videos for hours and hours
We hardly need to use our ears
How music changes through the years
Let’s hope you never leave old friend
Like all good things on you we depend
So stick around ’cause we might miss you
When we grow tired of all this visual
You had your time, you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio (radio)
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio, what’s new?
Someone still loves you
Radio ga ga
Radio ga ga
Radio ga ga
You had your time, you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio (radio)

Queen – We Will Rock You

Buddy, you’re a boy, make a big noise
Playing in the street, gonna be a big man someday
You got mud on your face, you big disgrace
Kicking your can all over the place, singin’
We will, we will rock you
We will, we will rock you
Buddy, you’re a young man, hard man
Shouting in the street, gonna take on the world someday
You got blood on your face, you big disgrace
Waving your banner all over the place
We will, we will rock you, sing it!
We will, we will rock you, yeah
Buddy, you’re an old man, poor man
Pleading with your eyes, gonna get you some peace someday
You got mud on your face, big disgrace
Somebody better put you back into your place, do it!
We will, we will rock you, yeah, yeah, come on
We will, we will rock you, alright, louder!
We will, we will rock you, one more time
We will, we will rock you
Yeah

Queen & David Bowie – Under Pressure

Mmm num ba de
Dum bum ba be
Doo buh dum ba beh beh
Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you, no man ask for
Under pressure that burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets
Um ba ba be
Um ba ba be
De day da
Ee day da, that’s okay
It’s the terror of knowing what the world is about
Watching some good friends screaming
“Let me out!”
Pray tomorrow gets me higher
Pressure on people, people on streets
Day day de mm hm
Da da da ba ba
Okay
Chipping around, kick my brains around the floor
These are the days it never rains but it pours
Ee do ba be
Ee da ba ba ba
Um bo bo
Be lap
People on streets
Ee da de da de
People on streets
Ee da de da de da de da
It’s the terror of knowing what the world is about
Watching some good friends screaming
‘Let me out’
Pray tomorrow gets me higher, high
Pressure on people, people on streets
Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don’t work
Keep coming up with love but it’s so slashed and torn
Why, why, why?
Love, love, love, love, love
Insanity laughs under pressure we’re breaking
Can’t we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can’t we give love that one more chance?
Why can’t we give love, give love, give love, give love
Give love, give love, give love, give love, give love?
‘Cause love’s such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love (people on streets) dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure
