Finish That Lyric

Recommended Posts

Whining?  You think that's whining?  Next song, clue 1 would have been "oh say can".  Or perhaps "True North strong".
 
Go for it.

Hey, that first Head East album went gold.  I thought it was more widely known--definitely a local favorite, first big concert I attended. emsmiled.gif
 
Rod got it; he's up.

The Tragically Hip
 
38 Years Old  (Nice double clue, BTW!)
 
Twelve men broke loose in seventy three
From Millhaven Maximum Security
Twelve pictures lined up across the front page
Seems the Mounties had a summertime war to wage

Well, the chief told the people they had nothing to fear
Said, "The last thing they want to do is hang around here"
They mostly came from towns with long French names
But one of the dozen was a hometown shame

Same pattern on the table, same clock on the wall
Been one seat empty eighteen years in all
Freezing slow time, away from the world
He's thirty eight years old, never kissed a girl
He's thirty eight years old, never kissed a girl

We were sitting round the table, heard the telephone ring
Father said he tell them if he saw anything
Heard the tap on my window in the middle of the night
Held back the curtain for my older brother Mike

See my sister got raped so a man got killed
Local boy went to prison, man's buried on the hill
Folks went back to normal when they closed the case
They still stare at their shoes when they pass our place

My mother cried, "The horror has finally ceased"
He whispered, "Yeah, for the time being at least"
And over her shoulder on the squad car megaphone
Said, "Let's go, Michael, son, we're taking you home"

Same pattern on the table, same clock on the wall
Been one seat empty eighteen years in all
Freezing slow time, away from the world
He's thirty eight years old, never kissed a girl
He's thirty eight years old, never kissed a girl
He's thirty eight years old, never kissed a girl

"like a child"
I know you don't listen to Back Street Boys...happy0009.gif So I'll take a stab with Paul Simon's Something So Right.
 
 

You’ve got the cool water

When the fever runs high

You’ve got the look of lovelight

In your eyes

And I was in crazy motion

‘Til you calmed me down

It took a little time

But you calmed me down

When something goes wrong

I’m the first to admit it

I’m the first to admit it

But the last one to know

When something goes right

Oh, it’s likely to lose me

It’s apt to confuse me

It’s such an unusual sight

Oh, I can’t get used to something so right

Something I can’t so right

They got a wall in China

It’s a thousand miles long

To keep out the foreigners

They made it strong

And I got a wall around me

That you can’t even see

It took a little time

To get next to me

When something goes wrong

I’m the first to admit it

I’m the first to admit it

But the last one to know

When something goes right

Oh, it’s likely to lose me

It’s apt to confuse me

Because it’s such an unusual sight

Oh, I swear, I can’t get used to something so right

Something so right

Some people never say the words

“I love you”

It’s not their style

To be so bold

Some people never say those words

“I love you”

But like a child they’re longing to be told

When something goes wrong

I’m the first to admit it

I’m the first to admit it

But the last one to know

When something goes right

Oh, it’s likely to lose me

It’s apt to confuse me

Because it’s such an unusual sight

I swear, I can’t get used to something so right

Something so right

Something so right

"Seven Bridges Road"
There are stars
In the Southern sky
Southward as you go
There is moonlight
And moss in the trees
Down the Seven Bridges Road
Now I have loved you like a baby
Like some lonesome child
And I have loved you in a tame way
And I have loved you wild
Sometimes there's a part of me
Has to turn from here and go
Running like a child from these warm stars
Down the Seven Bridges Road
There are stars in the Southern sky
And if ever you decide
You should go
There is a taste of thyme sweetened honey
Down the Seven Bridges Road

Heart: Magic man
 
Cold late night so long ago
When I was not so strong you know
A pretty man came to me
Never seen eyes so blue
I could not run away
It seemed we'd seen each other in a dream
It seemed like he knew me
He looked right through me
"Come on home, girl" he said with a smile
"You don't have to love me yet
Let's get high awhile
But try to understand
Try to understand
Try try try to understand
I'm a magic man."

Winter nights we sang in tune
Played inside the months of moon
Never think of never
Let this spell last forever
Summer over passed to fall
Tried to realized it all
Mama says she's a worried
Growing up in a hurry

"Come on home, girl" mama cried on the phone
"Too soon to lose my baby yet my girl should be at home!"
"But try to understand, try to understand
Try try try to understand
He's a magic man, mama
He's a magic man"

"Come on home, girl" he said with a smile
"I cast my spell of love on you a woman from a child!
But try to understand, try to understand
I'm a magic man!"
  • Thank You 1

Iggy Pop - Lust For Life Lyrics
 
Here comes Johnny Yen again
With the liquor and drugs
And the flesh machine
He's gonna do another striptease
Hey man where'd you get
That lotion? I been hurting
Since
I bought the gimmick
About something called love
Yeah something called love
That's like hypnotizing chickens
Well I am just a modern guy
Of course I've had it in the ear before
'Cause of a lust for life
'Cause of a lust for life
I'm worth a million in prizes
With my torture film
Drive a G.T.O.
Wear a uniform
All on a government loan
I'm worth a million in prizes
Yeah I'm through with sleeping on the
Sidewalk - no more beating my brains
With the liquor and drugs
With the liquor and drugs
Well I am just a modern guy
Of course I've had it in the ear before
'Cause of a lust for life
'Cause of a lust for life
I got a lust for life
Got a lust for life
Oh a lust for life
Oh a lust for life
A lust for life
I got a lust for life
I got a lust for life
Well I am just a modern guy
Of course I've had it in the ear before
'Cause of a lust for life
'Cause of a lust for life
'Cause of a lust for life
Here comes Johnny Yen again
With the liquor and drugs
And the flesh machine
He's gonna do another striptease
Hey man where'd you get
That lotion? Your skin starts
Itching once you buy the gimmick
About something called love
Oh love love love
That's like hypnotizing chickens
Well I am just a modern guy
Of course I've had it in the ear before
'Cause of a lust for life
'Cause of a lust for life
Got a lust for life
Yeah a lust for life
I got a lust for life
Oh a lust for life
I got a lust for life
Yeah a lust for life
I got a lust for life
A lust for life
Lust for life, lust for life
