Lay down your sweet and weary head
Night is falling, you have come to journey's end.
Sleep now, and dream of the ones who came before.
They are calling from across the distant shore.

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see all of your fears will pass away,
safe in my arms you're only sleeping.

(refrain)
What can you see on the horizon?
Why do those white gulls call?
Across the sea a pale moon rises --
The ships have come to carry you home.
Dawn will turn to silver glass
A light on the water - All souls pass.

Hope fades into the world of night
through shadows falling out of memory and time.
Don't say, "We have come now to the end."
White shores are calling you and I will meet again.
And you'll be here in my arms just sleeping.

(refrain)

Annie Lennox "Into the West" (From the LOTR movie "Return of the King")

edit - Listen to it here!!!

When I wake up early in the morning
Lift my head, I'm still yawning
When I'm in the middle of a dream
Stay in bed, float up stream

Please, don't wake me, no, don't shake me
Leave me where I am - I'm only sleeping

I'm Only Sleeping The Beatles

Six o'clock already
I was just in the middle of a dream
I was kissin' Valentino
By a crystal blue Italian stream
But I can't be late
'Cause then I guess I just won't get paid
These are the days
When you wish your bed was already made

It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my funday
My I don't have to runday
It's just another manic Monday

from Manic Monday by The Bangles

Manic depression is touching my soul
I know what I want but I just don’t know
How to, go about gettin’ it
Feeling sweet feeling,
Drops from my fingers, fingers
Manic depression is catchin’ my soul

At eleven forty five the phone began to ring
I heard someone say "Sonny Boy" and I know that was my name.
"Who called you?" I don't know. I don't know.
But I'm trying to get in touch with my Baby to find out why
She disappoint me so.

I recieved a special delivery, I recieved a telegram
Then she called me long distance to find out, where was I am
"For what?" I don't know. Man, I just don't know
But I'm still trying to get in touch with my Baby to find out why
She disappoint me so.

I met the greyhoud bus. I met the train
But she wasn't on either one, and I wanna know what was the blame.
"You mean to tell me she didn't come, man?" I don't know. I don't know.
But I've got my head in my hands wondering, why did my Baby
Disappoint me so.

I Don't Know

Climb upon my knee Sonny boy
You are only 3 Sonny boy
You have no way of knowing
I have no way of showing
What you mean to me Sonny boy
When they are gray skies honey
I don't mind those gray skies
I'll still have you Sonny boy
Don't you know that
My friends may forsake me
Let them go on and forsake me
You're gonna pull me straight through
Sonny boy
You're sent from heaven
And I know your worst
You've made a heaven for me
Right here on earth.


Sonny Boy, by Al Jolson

If you want to go
where the rainbows end
you'll have to say goodbye
all our dreams come true
baby up ahead
and it's out where your memories lie
well the road's out before me
and the moon is shining bright
what I want you to remember
as I disappear tonight
today is grey skies
tomorrow's tears
you'll have to wait til yesterday is here
Yesterday Is Here~ Tom Waits

O beautiful for spacious skies, for am - ber waves of grain,

For purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain!

America! A - merica! God shed His grace on thee,

And crown thy good with broth - er - hood

From sea to shining sea!


O beautiful for pilgrim feet whose stern im - passion'd stress

A thoroughfare for freedom beat across the wil - der - ness.

America! A - merica! God mend thine ev' - ry flaw,

Confirm thy soul in self - control, thy lib - er - ty in law.


O beautiful for patriot dream that sees be - yond the years

Thine al-a-bas-ter cities gleam un - dim'd by hu - man tears.

America! A - merica! God shed His grace on thee,

And crown thy good with broth - er - hood

From sea to shining sea!

Death in the wilderness
It's a hopeless case I guess
Who's looking out for the wilder side
It will soon all be gone
You can tell it won't be long
We'll find the wilderness has died
We'll be the lonely one
Concrete, plastic human throng
Tellin' one another have you heard the news
We'll mow it down, we'll rape the ground
'til there's nothing left to abuse
The rabbit, he'll be gone
The bird will sing no song
The wolf, the bear, the lion too
The insect far and near, creatures like the deer
We'll put in cages a the zoo
Death in the wilderness
It's a hopeless case I guess
Who's looking out for the wilder side
It will soon all be gone
You can tell it won't be long
We'll find the wilderness has died
The stream will all dry out
The fish, gone no doubt
We'll have no animals to fear
The tree will be no more
We'll use it to build the store
Mountain scene will disappear
These changes takin' place
Will affect the human race
We'll all know it when it's gone
God save this planet now
We've got to help somehow
We've left it happen way too long
Death in the wilderness
It's a hopeless case I guess
Who's looking out for the wilder side
It will soon all be gone
You can tell it won't be long
We'll find the wilderness has died
We'll find the wilderness has died

Death in The Wilderness - JJ Cale

Chorus:
This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

As I was walking a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

The sun comes shining as I was strolling
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

As I was walkin' - I saw a sign there
And that sign said - no tress passin'
But on the other side .... it didn't say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me!

Chorus

In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple
Near the relief office - I see my people
And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'
If this land's still made for you and me.

Chorus (2x)

oops, I went over the comfort limit. Can the next contributor start a new thread?
