    Mister marks can you find for me
    Someone strong and sweet fitting on my knee
    She can keep her job if she gets it wrong
    Ah, but mister marks I won't need her long
    All I need is help for a little while
    We can take dictation and learn to smile
    And a temporary secretary is what I need for to do the job

    There are some brilliant lyrics about but Pink Floyd have written some of the ones which resonate most with me.

    Bloody brilliant band.

    Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines

    I've tried
    I've failed
    I thought I gave my all
    Now it's hard to tell
    Is this the end
    Of this dream I lost
    Or just an introduction
    To how much it may cost

    "There's a house with no door and I'm living there
    At nights it gets so cold
    And the days are hard to bear inside.
    There's a house with no roof, so the rain creeps in,
    Falling through my head as I try to think out time.
    I don't know you, you say you know me,
    That may be so,
    There's so much that I am unsure of
    You call my name, but it sounds unreal,
    I forget how I feel, my body's rejecting the cure."

    Last Year's Man
    Leonard Cohen

    The rain falls down on last year's man,
    That's a Jew's harp on the table,
    That's a crayon in his hand.
    And the corners of the blueprint are ruined since they rolled
    Far past the stems of thumbtacks
    That still throw shadows on the wood.
    And the skylight is like skin for a drum I'll never mend
    And all the rain falls down amen
    On the works of last year's man.

    NICK DRAKE
    "Saturday Sun"

    Saturday sun
    Came early one morning
    In a sky so clear and blue
    Saturday sun
    Came without warning
    So no one knew what to do

    Saturday sun
    Brought people and faces
    That didn't seem much
    In their day
    But when I remember
    Those people and places
    They were really too good
    In their way
    In their way
    In their way
    Saturday sun
    Won't come and see me today

    Think about stories
    With reason and rhyme
    Circling through your brain
    And think about people
    In their season and time
    Returning again and again
    And again
    And again
    But Saturday's sun
    Has turned to Sunday's rain

    So Sunday sat
    In the Saturday sun
    And wept for a day gone by

    "Who Knows Where The Time Goes?"

    Across the evening sky,all the birds are leaving
    Oh but then you know, it was time for them to go
    By the winter fire, I will still be dreaming
    I do not count the time
    for who knows where the time goes?
    Who knows where the time goes?

    Sad,deserted shore
    your fickle friends are leaving
    oh, but then you know it was time for them to go
    But I will still be here
    I have no thought of leaving
    I do not count the time
    for who knows where the time goes?

    I know I'm not alone
    while my love is near me
    I know that its so until its time to go
    All the storms in Winter and the birds in Spring again
    I do not count the time
    For who knows where the time goes?
    who knows where the time goes?
    who knows where the time goes?

    Gone Away
    The Offspring
    Lyrics
    Maybe in another life
    I could find you there
    Pulled away before your time
    I can't deal it's so unfair
    And it feels
    And it feels like
    Heaven's so far away
    And it feels
    Yeah it feels like
    The world has grown cold
    Now that you've gone away
    Leaving flowers on your grave
    Show that I still care
    But black roses and Hail Mary's
    Can't bring back what's taken from me
    I reach to the sky
    And call out your name
    And if I could trade
    I would
    And it feels
    And it feels like
    Heaven's so far away
    And it stings
    Yeah it stings now
    The world is so cold
    Now that you've gone away

    Morning Of My Life; sung by Esther Ofarim
    Written: Bee Gees

    In the morning when the moon is at it's rest
    you will see me at the time I love the best
    watching rainbows play on sunlight
    pools of water iced from cold night, in the morning
    'Tis the morning of my life

    In the daytime I will meet you as before
    You will find me waiting by the ocean floor
    building castles in the shifting sands
    in a world that no one understands
    In the morning
    'Tis the morning of my life

    In the morning of my life the
    minutes take so long to drift away
    Please be patient with your life
    It's only morning and you're still to live your day

    In the ev'ning I will fly you to the moon
    To the top right hand corner of
    the ceiling in my room
    Where w'll stay until the sun shines
    Another day to swing on clothe's lines
    May I be yawning
    It is the morning of my life
    It is the morning of my life
    In the morning
    In the morning
    In the morning

    Fine Lines

    Here a fine line, there a fine line
    Oh what a time we had
    Here a strange place, and there a strange face
    Doesn’t it make you sad
    I will call up my friends and say
    Come on over, make my night or my day
    And talk about who’s the finest folk in town.

    There a day’s grace, here a night’s space
    Oh what a lovely rhyme
    Take it from me, there is no disgrace
    In having yourself a time
    I will call up my friends and say
    Come on over and make my day
    And talk about the love that I know is in us all.

    Making the bread, going mad in the head
    I know when I’m going too far
    I want to get back, want to take up the slack
    Get where the good times are
    But I will call up all my friends and will say
    I will say: Come on over make my night or my day
    And we’ll talk about who’s the finest folk in town.

    Here a fine line, there a fine wine
    Oh what a time we had
    Here a strange place, there a strange face
    Didn’t it make me sad
    I will call up my friends and say
    Now come on over and make my day
    And tell me about the love that’s in us all.
    That’s in us all…

    "Both Sides Now"

    Rows and flows of angel hair
    And ice cream castles in the air
    And feather canyons everywhere
    I've looked at clouds that way

    But now they only block the sun
    They rain and snow on everyone
    So many things I would have done
    But clouds got in my way

    I've looked at clouds from both sides now
    From up and down, and still somehow
    It's cloud illusions I recall
    I really don't know clouds at all

    Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
    The dizzy dancing way you feel
    As every fairy tale comes real
    I've looked at love that way

    But now it's just another show
    You leave 'em laughing when you go
    And if you care, don't let them know
    Don't give yourself away

    I've looked at love from both sides now
    From give and take, and still somehow
    It's love's illusions I recall
    I really don't know love at all

    Tears and fears and feeling proud
    To say "I love you" right out loud
    Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
    I've looked at life that way

    But now old friends are acting strange
    They shake their heads, they say I've changed
    Well something's lost, but something's gained
    In living every day

    I've looked at life from both sides now
    From win and lose and still somehow
    It's life's illusions I recall
    I really don't know life at all

    I've looked at life from both sides now
    From up and down and still somehow
    It's life's illusions I recall
    I really don't know life at all

    TOM WAITS
    "Tom Traubert's Blues"

    Wasted and wounded, it ain't what the moon did, I've got what I paid for now
    See you tomorrow, hey Frank, can I borrow a couple of bucks from you
    To go waltzing Mathilda, waltzing Mathilda,
    You'll go waltzing Mathilda with me

    I'm an innocent victim of a blinded alley
    And I'm tired of all these soldiers here
    No one speaks English, and everything's broken, and my Stacys are soaking wet
    To go waltzing Mathilda, waltzing Mathilda,
    You'll go waltzing Mathilda with me

    Now the dogs are barking and the taxi cab's parking
    A lot they can do for me
    I begged you to stab me, you tore my shirt open,
    And I'm down on my knees tonight
    Old Bushmill's I staggered, you'd bury the dagger
    In your silhouette window light go
    To go waltzing Mathilda, waltzing Mathilda,
    You'll go waltzing Mathilda with me

    Now I lost my Saint Christopher now that I've kissed her
    And the one-armed bandit knows
    And the maverick Chinamen, and the cold-blooded signs,
    And the girls down by the strip-tease shows, go
    Waltzing Mathilda, waltzing Mathilda,
    You'll go waltzing Mathilda with me

    No, I don't want your sympathy, the fugitives say
    That the streets aren't for dreaming now
    And manslaughter dragnets and the ghosts that sell memories,
    They want a piece of the action anyhow
    Go waltzing Mathilda, waltzing Mathilda,
    You'll go waltzing Mathilda with me

    And you can ask any sailor, and the keys from the jailor,
    And the old men in wheelchairs know
    And Mathilda's the defendant, she killed about a hundred,
    And she follows wherever you may go
    Waltzing Mathilda, waltzing Mathilda,
    You'll go waltzing Mathilda with me

    And it's a battered old suitcase to a hotel someplace,
    And a wound that will never heal
    No prima donna, the perfume is on an
    Old shirt that is stained with blood and whiskey
    And goodnight to the street sweepers, the night watchmen flame keepers
    And goodnight to Mathilda, too

    KING CRIMSON
    "The Court Of The Crimson King"

    The rusted chains of prison moons
    Are shattered by the sun
    I walk a road, horizons change
    The tournament's begun
    The purple piper plays his tune
    The choir softly sing
    Three lullabies in an ancient tongue
    For the court of the crimson king

    The keeper of the city keys
    Put shutters on the dreams
    I wait outside the pilgrim's door
    With insufficient schemes
    The black queen chants
    the funeral march
    The cracked brass bells will ring
    To summon back the fire witch
    To the court of the crimson king

    The gardener plants an evergreen
    Whilst trampling on a flower
    I chase the wind of a prism ship
    To taste the sweet and sour
    The pattern juggler lifts his hand
    The orchestra begin
    As slowly turns the grinding wheel
    In the court of the crimson king

    On soft gray mornings widows cry
    The wise men share a joke
    I run to grasp divining signs
    To satisfy the hoax
    The yellow jester does not play
    But gently pulls the strings
    And smiles as the puppets dance
    In the court of the crimson king

    Blur's Charmless Man - we've all met one of these:


    I met him in a crowded room
    Where people go to drink away their gloom
    He sat me down and so began
    The story of a charmless man
    Educated the expensive way
    He knows his claret from a beaujolais
    I think he'd like to have been Ronnie Kray
    But then nature didn't make him that way

    He thinks his educated airs those family shares
    Will protect him, that you will respect him
    He moves in circles of friends who just pretend that they like him
    He does the same to them and when you put it all together
    There's the model of a charmless man

    He knows the swingers and their cavalry
    Says he can get in anywhere for free
    I began to go a little cross eyed
    And from this charmless man I just had to hide

    He talks at speed he gets nose bleeds
    He doesn't see his days are tumbling down upon him
    Yet he tries so hard to please he's just so keen for you to listen
    But no-one is listening and when you put it all together
    There's the model of a charmless man

    He thinks his educated airs, those family shares
    Will protect him, that you will respect him
    Yet he tries so hard to please he's just so keen for you to listen
    But no-one is listening and when you put it all together
    There's the model of a charmless man

    Sara Crazy Child is devouring all the street
    With her pastel tortured dress
    And her seductive bongo beat
    Her skin's wild like the olives
    And her Body's bitter sweet
    Still she's only just thirteen

    And she's forgotten how to dream
    Her brother the Juke Box King
    With his venom mouthy sting
    And his knowledge twisted hair
    And his 1920's stare
    He lives beneath the roadway

    In a Minotaur's lair
    In summer he's a young boy
    But in winter he's a bear
    Broken dusty mama
    Her face melted just like wax

    Her once gazelle like features
    Bloodied by the age axe
    Sepia picture postcard
    Of the twosome of their home
    Soullessly they submitted to
    The guillotine of their own

    Hard to pin down just one favourite but F.E.A.R. by Ian Brown are great even if they're a little fractured and disjointed.

    I also adore 'All you Need Is Love' lyrics.

    I'm a simple soul.

    You could hear the hoof beats pound as they raced across the ground,
    And the clatter of the wheels as they spun 'round and 'round.
    And he galloped into market street, his badge upon his chest,
    His name was Ernie, and he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.

    Now Ernie loved a widow, a lady known as Sue,
    She lived all alone in Liddley Lane at number 22.
    They said she was too good for him, she was haughty, proud and chic,
    But Ernie got his cocoa there three times every week.

    They called him Ernie, (Ernieeeeeeeeeee)
    And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.

    She said she'd like to bathe in milk, he said, "All right, sweetheart,"
    And when he'd finished work one night he loaded up his cart.
    He said, "D'you want it pasturize? 'Cause pasturize is best,"
    She says, "Ernie, I'll be happy if it comes up to my chest."

    That tickled old Ernie, (Ernieeeeeeeeeee)
    And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.

    Now Ernie had a rival, an evil-looking man,
    Called Two-Ton Ted from Teddington and he drove the baker's van.
    He tempted her with his treacle tarts and his tasty wholemeal bread,
    And when she seen the size of his hot meat pies it very near turned her head.

    She nearly swooned at his macaroon and he said, "If you treat me right,
    You'll have hot rolls every morning and crumpets every night."
    He knew once she sampled his layer cake he'd have his wicked way,
    And all Ernie had to offer was a pint of milk a day.

    Poor Ernie, (Ernieeeeeeeeeee)
    And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.

    One lunch time Ted saw Ernie's horse and cart outside her door,
    It drove him mad to find it was still there at half past four.
    And as he lept down from his van hot blood through his veins did course,
    And he went across to Ernie's cart and didn't half kick his 'orse.

    Whose name was Trigger, (Triggerrrrrrrr)
    And he pulled the fastest milk cart in the west.

    Now Ernie rushed out into the street, his gold top in his hand,
    He said, "If you wanna marry Susie you'll fight for her like a man."
    "Oh why don't we play cards for her?" he sneeringly replied,
    "And just to make it interesting we'll have a shilling on the side."

    Now Ernie dragged him from his van and beneath the blazing sun,
    They stood there face to face, and Ted went for his bun.
    But Ernie was too quick, things didn't go the way Ted planned,
    And a strawberry-flavoured yogurt sent it spinning from his hand.

    Now Susie ran between them and tried to keep them apart,
    And Ernie, he pushed her aside and a rock cake caught him underneath his heart.
    And he looked up in pained surprise and the concrete hardened crust,
    Of a stale pork pie caught him in the eye and Ernie bit the dust.

    Poor Ernie, (Ernieeeeeeeeeee)
    And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.

    Ernie was only 52, he didn't wanna die,
    And now he's gone to make deliveries in that milk round in the sky.
    Where the customers are angels and ferocious dogs are banned,
    And the milkman's life is full of fun in that fairy, dairy land.

    But a woman's needs are many fold and soon she married Ted,
    But strange things happened on their wedding night as they lay in their bed.
    Was that the trees a-rustling? Or the hinges of the gate?
    Or Ernie's ghostly gold tops a-rattling in their crate?

    They won't forget Ernie, (Ernieeeeeeeeee)
    And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.

    End of thread.

    And he looked up in pained surprise and the concrete hardened crust,
    Of a stale pork pie caught him in the eye and Ernie bit the dust.

    Poor Ernie, (Ernieeeeeeeeeee)
    And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.

    Ernie was only 52, he didn't wanna die,
    And now he's gone to make deliveries in that milk round in the sky.
    Where the customers are angels and ferocious dogs are banned,
    And the milkman's life is full of fun in that fairy, dairy land.

    But a woman's needs are many fold and soon she married Ted,
    But strange things happened on their wedding night as they lay in their bed.
    Was that the trees a-rustling? Or the hinges of the gate?
    Or Ernie's ghostly gold tops a-rattling in their crate?

    They won't forget Ernie, (Ernieeeeeeeeee)
    And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.

    End of thread.
    Now weirdly enough I've read some of your posts and instantly had you down as a massive Benny Hill fan.

    You ****ing weirdo.

    Lupe Fiasco: Words I Never Said

    "It's so loud inside my head,
    With words that I should've have said,
    As I drown in my regrets,
    I can't take back, the words I never said."

    (I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence,
    Fear is such a weak emotion, that's why I despise it,
    We're scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth,
    So scared of what you think of me, I'm scared of even telling you,
    Sometimes I'm like the only person I feel safe to tell it to
    I'm locked inside a cell in me, I know that there's a jail in you,
    Consider this your bailing out, so take a breath, inhale a few,
    My screams are finally getting free, my thoughts are finally yelling through")
