    i love poetic songs.....this song is extremely poetic and i like it......


    Train ... "Drops of Jupiter"

    Now that she's back in the atmosphere
    With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey
    She acts like summer and walks like rain
    Reminds me that there's time to change, hey, hey
    Since the return from her stay on the moon
    She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey

    Tell me did you sail across the sun
    Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded
    And that heaven is overrated

    Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
    One without a permanent scar
    And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

    Now that she's back from that soul vacation
    Tracing her way through the constellation, hey, hey
    She checks out Mozart while she does tae-bo
    Reminds me that there's room to grow, hey, hey

    Now that she's back in the atmosphere
    I'm afraid that she might think of me as plain ol' Jane
    Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land

    Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
    Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
    And head back to the Milky Way
    And tell me, did Venus blow your mind
    Was it everything you wanted to find
    And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

    Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken
    Your best friend always sticking up for you
    even when I know you're wrong
    Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance, five hour phone conversation
    The best soy latte that you ever had . . . and me

    Tell me, did the wind sweep you off your feet
    Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
    And head back toward the Milky Way

    Tell me did you sail across the sun
    Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded
    And that heaven is overrated

    Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
    One without a permanent scar
    And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

    And did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day

    And did you fall from a shooting star...
    Fall from a shooting star...

    And are you lonely by yourself out there...

    TAKE THIS LONGING - Leonard Cohen

    Many men have loved the bells
    you fastened to the rein,
    and everyone who wanted you
    they found what they will always want again.
    Your beauty lost to you yourself
    just as it was lost to them.
    Oh take this longing from my tongue,
    whatever useless things these hands have done.
    Let me see your beauty broken down
    like you would do for one you love.

    Your body like a searchlight
    my poverty revealed,
    I would like to try your charity
    until you cry, "Now you must try my greed."
    And everything depends upon
    how near you sleep to me

    Just take this longing from my tongue
    all the lonely things my hands have done.
    Let me see your beauty broken down
    like you would do for one your love.

    Hungry as an archway
    through which the troops have passed,
    I stand in ruins behind you,
    with your winter clothes, your broken sandal straps.
    I love to see you naked over there
    especially from the back.

    Oh take this longing from my tongue,
    all the useless things my hands have done,
    untie for me your hired blue gown,
    like you would do for one that you love.

    You're faithful to the better man,
    I'm afraid that he left.
    So let me judge your love affair
    in this very room where I have sentenced
    mine to death.
    I'll even wear these old laurel leaves
    that he's shaken from his head.

    Just take this longing from my tongue,
    all the useless things my hands have done,
    let me see your beauty broken down,
    like you would do for one you love.

    Like you would do for one you love.

    yip, love these lyrics....the reason for my sig, jst thort id share...even with his monotone ass voice, still beautiful.

    Prince: Sometimes it Snows in April. This song made me a prince fan:

    Tracy died soon after a long fought civil war,
    just after I'd wiped away his last tear
    I guess he's better off than he was before,
    A whole lot better off than the fools he left here
    I used 2 cry 4 Tracy because he was my only friend
    Those kind of cars don't pass u every day
    I used 2 cry 4 Tracy because I wanted to see him again,
    But sometimes sometimes life ain't always the way...

    Sometimes it snows in April
    Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
    Sometimes I wish life was never ending,
    and all good things, they say, never last

    Springtime was always my favorite time of year,
    A time 4 lovers holding hands in the rain
    Now springtime only reminds me of Tracy's tears
    Always cry 4 love, never cry 4 pain
    He used 2 say so strong unafraid to die
    Unafraid of the death that left me hypnotized
    No, staring at his picture I realized
    No one could cry the way my Tracy cried

    Sometimes it snows in April
    Sometimes I feel so bad
    Sometimes, sometimes I wish that life was never ending,
    And all good things, they say, never last

    I often dream of heaven and I know that Tracy's there
    I know that he has found another friend
    Maybe he's found the answer 2 all the April snow
    Maybe one day I'll see my Tracy again

    Sometimes it snows in April
    Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
    Sometimes I wish that life was never ending,
    But all good things, they say, never last

    All good things that say, never last
    And love, it isn't love until it's past

    The Coup - Underdogs (arguably my most favoritestic rap song ever because of the emotion in it. You must download and listen to it to get the full feeling)

    Underdog Lyrics
    The Coup
    Steal This Album
    (chorus)
    This is for my folkers who got bills overdue
    This is for my folkers, um, check one two
    This is for my folkers who never lived like a hog
    Me and you, toe to toe, I got love for the underdog
    *repeat chorus*

    I raise this glass for the ones who die meaninglessly
    And the newborns who get fed intravenously
    Somebody's mom caught a job and a welfare fraud case
    When she breathe she swear it feels like plastic wrap around her face
    Lights turned off and its the third month the rent is late
    Thoughts of being homeless, crying till you hyperventilate
    Despair permeates the air then sets in your ear
    The kids play with that one toy they learned how to share
    Coming home don't never seem to be a celebration
    Bills they piled up on the coffee table like they're decorations
    Big ol' spoons of peanut butter, big ass glass of water
    Makes the hunger subside, save the real food for your daughter
    You feel like swingin haymakers at a moving truck
    You feel like laughing so it seems like you don't give a fuck
    You feel like getting so high you smoke a whole damn crop
    You feel like crying but you think that you might never stop
    Homes with no heat stiffen your joints like arthritis
    If this was fiction, it'd be easier to write this
    Some folks try to front like they so above you
    They'd tear this motherfucker up if they really loved you

    *chorus*

    There's certain tricks of the trade to try and hault your defeat
    Like taking tupperware to an "all you can eat"
    Returning used shit for new saying you lost your receipt
    And writing four figure checks when your accounts deplete
    Then all your problems pile up about a mile up
    Thinkin about a partner you can dial up to help you out this foul stuff
    Whole family sleepin on a futon while you're clippin coupons
    Eatin salad tryin to get full off the croutons
    'Crosstown, the situation is identical
    Somebody's getting strangled by the system and its tentacles
    Misconceptions raise questions to be solved
    Alot of b-boys are broke, alot of homeless got jobs
    You can make 8 bones an hour till you pass out and still be assed out
    Most pyramid schemes don't let you cash out
    They say this generation makes the harmony pray
    But crime rises consistent with the povery rate
    You take the workers and jobs, you're gonna have murders and mobs
    A gang of preachers screamin sermons over murmurs and sobs
    Saying pray for a change from the Lord above you
    They'd tear this motherfucker up if they really loved you

    *chorus*

    You like this song cause it relates, it's you in this rhyme
    We go to stores that only let us in two at a time
    We live in places where it costs to get your check cashed
    Arguements about money usually drown out the tec blasts
    Work six days a week, can't sleep Saturdays though
    Muscles tremblin like a pager when the battery's low
    And you just don't know where the years went
    Although every long shift feels like a year spent
    And you can write your resume, but it wouldn't even mention
    All the life lessons learned doing six years of detention
    Or how you learned the police was just some handicappers
    On the ground next to broken glass and candy wrappers
    Now don't accept my collects on the phone
    Just hit me at the house so I know I ain't alone
    And we can chop it up about this messed up system
    Homies that's been killed, how we always gonna miss them
    It's almost impossible survivin on this fraction
    Sip a 40 to the brain for the chemical reaction
    You gotta hustle cause they're tryin to push and shove you
    I'll tear this motherfucker up since I really love you

    *chorus*

    Limo Wreck - Soundgarden

    Tears of the feeble, hands of the slaves
    Skin of the mothers, mouths of the babes
    Building the towers, belongs to the sky
    When the whole thing comes crashing down
    Don't ask me why

    Under the shelf, the shelf of the sky
    Two eyes, two suns, too heavenly blinds
    Swallowing rivers, belongs to the sea
    When the whole thing washes away
    Don't run to me

    I'll be going down for the rest of the slide
    While the rest of you harvest the gold

    And the wreck of you
    Is the death of you all
    And the wreck of you
    Is the break and the fall
    I'm the wreck of you
    I'm the death of you all
    I'm the wreck of you
    I'm the break and the fall

    Under the red break of the lights
    Heroes in stretches inch to the site
    Blowing the pieces, belong to the wind
    When the whole thing blows away
    I won't pretend

    I'll be going down for the rest of the slide
    While the rest of you harvest the souls

    And the wreck of you
    Is the death of you all
    And the wreck of you
    Is the break and the fall
    I'm the wreck of you
    I'm the death of you all
    I'm the wreck of you
    I'm the break and the fall

    Behind the blood red break of the lights
    Lies the wreck of you for the rest of your life

    And the wreck of you
    Is the death of you all
    And the wreck of you
    Is the break and the fall
    I'm the wreck of you
    I'm the death of you all
    I'm the wreck of you
    I'm the break and the fall

    I'll be posting in here alot more...there are so many damn songs!!!

    Artist: Dead Prez
    Album: Let's Get Free
    Song: Mind Sex
    Typed by: Kerosene@²²²²²²²²

    [Chorus]
    It's time for some mind sex, we ain't got to take our clothes off yet
    We can burn the incense, and just chat
    Relax, I got the good vibrations
    Before we make love let's have a good conversation

    [Verse 1]
    Pardon me love but you seem like my type
    What you doin tonight? you should stop by the site
    We could, roll some weed play some records and talk
    I got a fly spot downtown Brooklyn, New York
    Now I know you think I wanna fuck, no doubt
    but tonight we'll try a different route, how bout we start
    With a salad, a fresh bed of lettuce with croutons
    Later we can play a game of chess on the futon
    See i ain't got to get in your blouse
    It's your eye contact, that be getting me aroused
    When you show me your mind, it make me wanna show you mines
    Reflecting my light, when it shines, just takin our time
    Before the night's through, we could get physical too
    I ain't tryin to say I don't wanna fuck, cause I do
    But for me boo, makin love is just as much mental
    I like to know what I'm gettin into

    [Chorus]
    We could have mind sex, we ain't got to take our clothes off yet
    We can burn the incense, and just chat
    Relax, I got the good vibrations
    Before we make love let's have a good conversation

    It's time for some mind sex, we ain't got to take our clothes off yet
    We can burn the incense, and just chat
    Relax, I got the good vibrations
    Before we make love let's have a good conversation
    Time for some mind sex...

    (singing): before we make love

    Yeah, what you know about mind sex?

    (singing): before we make love

    [Verse 2]
    African princess, tell me yo' interests
    Wait, let me guess boo, you probably like poetry
    Here's a little something I jotted down in case I spotted you around
    So let me take this opportunity
    Would you share a moment with me, over herbal tea?
    Take a walk verbally, make a bond certaintly
    Cuz in my hand I bet your hand fit perfectly
    And it's like we floatin out in space when you flirtin wit me
    C'mon, a little foreplay don't hurt (hmmm)
    Imagine my chest under this shirt, your ass under your skirt
    It's like walking the hot sands and finding an oasis
    Opposites attract that's the basis
    Our sex is the wind that seperates the yin from the yang
    The balance that means complete change, our aim
    Is to touch you in a delicate spot
    And once we get it started I ain't trying to stop

    [Chorus]
    But first we have mind sex, we ain't got to take our clothes off yet
    We can burn the incense, and just chat
    Relax, I got the good vibrations
    Before we make love let's have a good conversation

    It's time for some mind sex, we ain't got to take our clothes off yet
    We can burn the incense, and just chat
    Relax, I got the good vibrations
    Before we make love let's have a good conversation
    Mind sex...

    [Spoken]
    She smiles, I smile
    She walks, no she glides softly by me changing night into day
    She opens her mouth to speak, and so sounds ring in my head
    She speaks, and i want to dance to her rhythm
    She moves ever so gently, increasing my desires,
    As i place my arms around her waist,
    Hold and squeeze unto me,
    I want to melt into her body, and discover the base of her warmth
    Her beautiful black body that, no human mind could ever conceive
    She's love
    She's truth
    She's real, as real as the stars that shine in the heavens
    As real as the sun that bathes her body,
    As real as the moon that glows and the birds that sing and the rose
    That blossoms in spring for she is that rose
    And not just any rose,
    But a black rose,
    Black rose stands tall and stronger than any other plant
    A black rose, that stands as creator, of nations of
    Black rose
    That never loses her petals, and blossoms all year round
    Black rose,
    Sweet rose,
    Thornless rose
    Eternal rose
    Please look my way,
    Please look my way
    Please look my way
    Black rose
