Restarting the lyrics thread with Milo's last offering

[Spoken]
Those who dance and romance while they dance...
They seem so happy and gay;
Though they sing while they swing and they sway,
Somehow I can't feel that way.

I've been dancing with tears in my eyes,
'Cause the girl in my arms wasn't you;

Dancing with somebody new,
When it's you that my hearts calling to.

Trying to smile, once in a while,
But I find that so hard to do.

I've been dancing with tears in my eyes,
'Cause the girl in my arms wasn't you.


Dancing With Tears In My Eyes

I'm singing Baby
I know you know
When the music's pumpin'
And the lights are low
You become someone else

I feel it burnin from my soul
It takes me higher..yeah
And baby there's no reason to control
Your hot dance with my desire

I Know~Shawn Mullins

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
when you love some one but it goes to waste
could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you.

Fix u- by Coldplay..... the best song i have heard in 2005.

Lights

When the lights go down in the city
And the sun shines on the bay
I want to be there in my city
Ooh, ooh

So you think youíre lonely
Well my friend Iím lonely too
I want to get back to my city by the bay
Ooh, ooh

Itís sad, oh thereís been mornings out on the road without you,
Without your charms,
Ooh, my, my, my

Sitting on a park bench --
eyeing little girls with bad intent.
Snot running down his nose --
greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes.
Drying in the cold sun --
Watching as the frilly panties run.
Feeling like a dead duck --
spitting out pieces of his broken luck.

Sun streaking cold --
an old man wandering lonely.
Taking time
the only way he knows.
Leg hurting bad,
as he bends to pick a dog-end --
he goes down to the bog
and warms his feet.

Feeling alone --
the army's up the rode
salvation ŗ la mode and
a cup of tea.
Aqualung my friend --
don't start away uneasy
you poor old sod, you see, it's only me.
Do you still remember
December's foggy freeze --
when the ice that
clings on to your beard is
screaming agony.
And you snatch your rattling last breaths
with deep-sea-diver sounds,
and the flowers bloom like
madness in the spring.

Aqualung - Ian Anderson

The *sun* is a mass
of incandescent gas
a gigantic nucular furnace
where hydrogen is turned
into he-li-um
at a temprature of millions of degrees

Yo, ho! It's hot!
The sun is not
a place where we could live
But dum dum dum
dum dum dum dum
There'd be no you and me!

Songs of Science by ___, later lifted by ___

by Lou Singer and Hy Zaret, 1959

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace
Where Hydrogen is built into Helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

The sun is hot, the sun is not
A place where we could live
But here on Earth there'd be no life
Without the light it gives

We need its light, we need its heat
The sun light that we seek
The sun light comes from our own sun's
Atomic energy

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace
Where Hydrogen is built into Helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

The sun is hot...

The sun is so hot that everything on it is a gas
Aluminum, Copper, Iron, and many others

The sun is large...

If the sun were hollow, a million Earth's would fit inside
And yet, it is only a middle size star

The sun is far away...

About 93,000,000 miles away
And that's why it looks so small

But even when it's out of sight
The sun shines night and day

We need its heat, we need its light
The sun light that we seek
The sun light comes from our own sun's
Atomic energy

Scientists have found that the sun is a huge atom smashing machine
The heat and light of the sun are caused by nuclear reactions between
Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Carbon, and Helium

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace
Where Hydrogen is built into Helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

Hey Bob, Supe had a straight job
Even though he could have smashed through any bank
In the United States, he had the strength, but he would not
Folks said his family were all dead
Their planet crumbled but Superman, he forced himself
To carry on, forget Krypton, and keep going

Well if I had money
Tell you what I'd do
I'd go downtown and buy a Mercury or two.

Crazy bout a Mercury
Lord I'm crazy bout a Mercury
I'm gonna buy me a Mercury
And cruise it up and down the road


Well the girl I love
I stole her from a friend
He got lucky, stole her back again
She heard he had a Mercury

Lord she's crazy bout a Mercury
I'm gonna buy me a Mercury
And cruise it up and down the road


Well hey now mama
You look so fine
ridin round in your Mercury 49
Crazy bout a Mercury

Lord I'm crazy bout a Mercury
I'm gonna buy me a Mercury
And cruise it up and down the road


Well my baby went out
She didn't stay long
Bought herself a Mercury, come a cruisin home

She's crazy bout a Mercury
Yeah she's crazy bout a Mercury
And cruise it up and down the road


Well if I had money
I tell you what I'd do
I'd go downtown and buy me a Mercury or two

Crazy bout a Mercury
I'm gonna buy me a Mercury
And cruise it up and down the road.


Mercury Blues

So what am I? Chopped kryptonite?

P.S. Opps accepted. I'll try to come up with one that fuses the two offerings.
