Finish That Lyric

Recommended Posts

Great Northern - Houses
 
The end begins just as it starts
And leaves me wondering what we left behind
Told me not to talk but please explain
My thoughts that float around my mind

So take a step back will you
Be alright, feel alright?
And now

All this time when we walk we won't feel
But sometime in a box it won't steal

Up ahead I see it, I can find it but I feel alive
Followed me inside of a place
I felt like things would still be alright
And now

All this time when we walk we won't feel
But sometime in a box it can steal
All this time when I talk it's not real
It's not real, not real, not real, it's not real

All this time when we walk we won't feel
But sometime in a box it won't steal
All this time when I walk I won't feel, I won't feel
All this time when I talk it's not real, it's not real

Not real, not real, not real, not real, it's not real
Not real, not real, not real, it's not real
Not real, not real, not real, not real
All this time when I talk it's not real, it's not real, it's not real

Linda Ronstadt "Someone to lay down beside me"
 
There's somebody waiting alone in the street
For someone to walk up and greet
Here you are all alone in the city
Where's the love that you took to your side
Lonely faces will stare through your eyes in the night

And they'll say
Woman sweet woman
Please come home with me
You're shining and willing and free
But your love is a common occurrence
Not like love that I feel in my heart
Still you know that may be what I need

Is someone to lay down beside me
And even though it's not real
Just someone to lay down beside me
You're the story of my life

Someone to lay down beside me
And even though it's not real
Just someone to lay down beside me
You're the story of my life

The morning is breaking
The street lights are off
The sun will soon share all the cost
Of a world that can be sort of heartless
Not like love that I feel in my heart
Still you know that may be all you'll get

Is someone to lay down beside you
And even though it's not real
Just someone to lay down beside you
You just can't ask for more

I actually don't remember the Ronstadt version.  She (Ronstadt) did a lot of Bonoff songs, and the few Karla Bonoff albums had Ronstadt and Eagles band members playing.  Bonus question--who were "The Smogtones"?
 
According to the Official Rules (below), gotta give it to Andrew, who hit it on the head.
 
Final clue was going to be "woman, sweet woman" which had to have given it away.
 
Andrew, back to you!  
 


Yes, 3 words from anywhere. If no one guesses it, 3 more. Then a final 3 if there is still no winner.
 
Tow win, you must correctly guess the artist and name of the song.

For the record, I suck at trivia games...,  Had a crush on Linda Rondstadt and Karla Bonoff, though, as a kid.
 
OK, next song, here's the first three word clue:
 
"...take your time... "

Come as you are.  Nirvana
 
Bingo !  You got it.  I thought "soaked in bleach" was unique..., I don't know of other songs with that lyric.  Think
 
You are up, next. 
 
For the full lyrics:
 
"Come As You Are"
Come as you are, as you were,
As I want you to be
As a friend, as a friend,
As an old enemy.
Take your time, hurry up
The choice is yours,
Don't be late.
Take a rest as a friend,
As an old memory, ah
Memory, ah [3x]
Come dowsed in mud, soaked in bleach
As I want you to be
As a trend, as a friend, as an old memory, ah
Memory, ah [3x]
And I swear that I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun [2x]
Memory, ah [3x]
Memory, ah - and I don't have a gun
And I swear that I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun [4x]
Memory, ah [2x]

I pull out that LP periodically.  Lot of good stuff, including a version of Angel of the Morning.

Patti Labelle - You Saved My Life ?

 

 

Now and then,

I look where I've been,

It seem the good sometimes went wrong,

I see in YOU, the love that pulled me through,

The love that kept me strong...

You saved my life,

When drowing in a lonely sea,

You reached out and rescued me,

You save my life,

With love You saved my life,

Yo've been there,

When no one dared to care,

Somehow you shield me from all harm,

A guiding light, in my darkest night,

My shelter in the storm...

You saved my life,

When all around was sinking sand,

You were there with out stretched hands,

You saved my life,

With love you saved my life,

With nothing to gain, you bared my pain,

From the start, showed me love from the heart,

And when all else failed, on faith in you I held,

Yes my life, my soul, I owe you...

I... saved my life,

It took time, but now I see,

Your love supplies all me needs,

You saved my life,

With love YOU saved my life.

Stop whining!
 
 
Never been any reason - Head East
 
Did you see any action, did you make any friends?
Would you like some affection, before I leave again?
I've been walking behind you, since you've been able to see
There's never been any reason for you to think about me.

Did you have any bad dreams, did you break any glass?
Would you be my companion, is there even a chance?
You've been talking in circles, since I've been able to cry
There's never been any reason for never telling me why yea ha

Save my life I'm going down for the last time
Woman with a sweet lovin' better than a white line
Bring a good feelin' ain't had in such a long time
Save my life I'm going down for the last time

Have you ever been lonely, do you have any fun?
Do you ever think of me, I'm just another one , yea
You never give me no answer, you never tell me the truth
There's never been any reason for me to think about you
There's never been any reason
There's never been any reason, yea haa
There's never been any reason
Save my life I'm going down for the last time.
Woman with a sweet lovin' better than a white line
Don't you know she could bring a good feelin' ain't had in such a long time
Save my life I'm going down for the last time, woah
Save my life I'm going down for the last time
Save my life I'm going down for the last time
Save my life I'm going down for the last time
Save my life I'm going down for the last time
Save my life I'm going down for the last time
