LSS :: Samson By Regina Spektor

Love this song.

Samson

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth
I have to go, I have to go
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
He ate a slice of Wonderbread
And went right back to bed
And history books forgot about us
And the Bible didn’t mention us
The Bible didn’t mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first , I loved you first
Beneath the stars came falling on our heads
But they’re just old light
They’re just old light
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson came to my bed
Told me that my hair was red
Told me I was beautiful and came into my bed
I cut his hair myself one night
A pair of dull scissors and the yellow light
He told me that I’d done all right
And kissed me until the morning light, the morning light
And he kissed me until the morning light

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of Wonderbread
And went right back to bed
We couldn’t break the columns down
No, we couldn’t destroy a single one
And the history books forgot about us
And the Bible didn’t mention us
Not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first

LSS: Stop This Train by John Mayer

Sobrang naastigan ako sa kantang ito. I quoted this to a friend last friday or was it saturday already:

“So scared of getting older I’m only good at being young So I play the numbers game to find away to say that life has just begun”

Here is a link to a youtube video of a live performance.

 

No I’m not color blind
I know the world is black and white
Try to keep an open mind but…
I just can’t sleep on this tonight
Stop this train I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take the speed it’s moving in
I know I can’t
But honestly won’t someone stop this train

Don’t know how else to say it, don’t want to see my parents go
One generation’s length away
From fighting life out on my own

Stop this train
I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take the speed it’s moving in
I know I can’t but honestly won’t someone stop this train

So scared of getting older
I’m only good at being young
So I play the numbers game to find away to say that life has just begun
Had a talk with my old man
Said help me understand
He said turn 68, you’ll renegotiate
Don’t stop this train
Don’t for a minute change the place you’re in
Don’t think I couldn’t ever understand
I tried my hand
John, honestly we’ll never stop this train

See once in a while when it’s good
It’ll feel like it should
And they’re all still around
And you’re still safe and sound
And you don’t miss a thing
’til you cry when you’re driving away in the dark.

Singing stop this train I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take this speed it’s moving in
I know I can’t
Cause now I see I’ll never stop this train

(think I got ’em now)

Current LSS :: Dr. Dre – I Need A Doctor (Explicit) ft. Eminem, Skylar Grey

[Hook: Skylar Grey]
I’m about to lose my mind
You’ve been gone for so long, I’m runnin’ outta time
I need a doctor, call me a doctor
I need a doctor, doctor to bring me back to life

[Verse 1: Eminem]
I told the world one day I would pay it back
Say it on tape, and lay it, record it so that one day I could play it back
But I don’t even know if I believe it when I’m sayin’ that
Doubts startin’ to creep in, everyday it’s so grey and black
Hope, I just need a ray of that, cause no one sees my vision
When I play it for ‘em, they just say it’s wack, they don’t know what dope is
And I don’t know if I was awake or asleep when I wrote this
All I know is you came to me when I was at my lowest
You picked me up, breathin’ life in me, I owe my life to you
But for the life of me, I don’t see why you don’t see like I do
But it just dawned on me you lost a son, demons fighting you, it’s dark
Let me turn on the lights and brighten me and enlighten you
I don’t think you realise what you mean to me, not the slightest clue
Cause me and you were like a crew, I was like your sidekick
You gon either wanna fight me when I get off this fuckin’ mic
Or you gon’ hug me, but I’m outta options, there’s nothin’ else I can do cause

[Hook]

[Verse 2: Eminem]
It hurts when I see you struggle, you come to me with ideas
You say they’re just pieces, so I’m puzzled, cause the shit I hear is crazy
But you’re either gettin’ lazy or you don’t believe in you no more
Seems like your own opinions, not one you can form
Can’t make a decision you keep questionin’ yourself
Second guessin’ and it’s almost like your beggin’ for my help
Like I’m your leader, you’re supposed to fuckin’ be my mentor
I can endure no more I demand you remember who you are
It was YOU, who believed in me when everyone was tellin’
You don’t sign me, everyone at the fuckin’ label, let’s tell the truth
You risked your career for me, I know it as well as you
Nobody wanted to fuck with the white boy, Dre, I’m cryin’ in this booth
You saved my life, now maybe it’s my turn to save yours
But I can never repay you, what you did for me is way more
But I ain’t givin’ up faith and you ain’t givin’ up on me
Get up Dre I’m dyin’, I need you, come back for fuck’s sake

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Dr. Dre]
It literally feels like a lifetime ago
But I still remember the shit like it was just yesterday, though
You walked in, yellow jump suit, whole room, cracked jokes
Once you got inside the booth, told you, MiC smoke
Went through friends, some of them I put on, but they just left
They said they was ridin’ to the death, but where the fuck are they now?
Now that I need them, I don’t see none of them
All I see is Slim, fuck all you fair-weather friends, all I need is him
Fuckin’ backstabbers, when the chips were down you just laughed at us
Now you bout to feel the fuckin’ wrath of Aftermath, faggots
You gon’ see us in our lab jackets and ask us where the fuck we been?
You can kiss my indecisive ass crack, maggots
And the crackers’ ass, little crack a jack beat
Makin’ wack math, backwards producers, I’m back bastards
One more CD and then I’m packin’ up my bags and as I’m leavin’
I’ll guarantee they scream, “Dre, don’t leave us like that man!” cause

I DON’T LIKE MONDAYS by Boomtown Rats

I DON’T LIKE MONDAYS
(Bob Geldof)
Boomtown Rats – 1979
The silicon chip inside her head
Gets switched to overload
And nobody’s gonna go to school today
She’s gonna make them stay at home
And daddy doesn’t understand it
He always said she was good as gold
And he can see no reason
Cos there are no reasons
What reasons do you need to be shown
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
I want to shoot
The whole day down
The telex machine is kept so clean
And it types to a waiting world.
And Mother feels so shocked
Father’s world is rocked
And their thoughts turn to
Their own little girl
Sweet 16 ain’t that peachy keen
No it ain’t so neat to admit defeat,
They can see no reasons
Cos there are no reasons
What reasons do you need oh oh oh oh
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
I want to shoot
The whole day down, down, down
Shoot it all down
And now the playing’s stopped in the playground now
She wants to play with her toys awhile
And school’s out early and soon we’ll be learning
And the lesson today is how to die
And then the bullhorn crackles
And the captain tackles
With the problems and the how’s and why’s
And he can see no reasons
Cos there are no reasons
What reason do you need to die, die, oh oh oh
And the silicon chip inside her head
Gets switched to overload
And nobody’s gonna go to school today
She’s gonna make them stay at home
And daddy doesn’t understand it
He always said she was good as gold
And he can see no reasons
Cos there are no reasons
What reason do you need to be shown
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like, I don’t like
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like, I don’t like
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
I want to shoot
The whole day down

LSS::ASK

A song dedicated to me and my friends.

Ask

The Smiths

Shyness is nice and
Shyness can stop you
From doing all the things in life
You’d like to

Shyness is nice and
Shyness can stop you
From doing all the things in life
You’d like to

So, if there’s something you’d like to try
If there’s something you’d like to try
Ask me I wont say no, how could I?

Coyness is nice, and
Coyness can stop you
From saying all the things in
Life you’d like to

So, if there’s something you’d like to try
If there’s something you’d like to try
Ask me I wont say no, how could I?

Spending warm Summer days indoors
Writing frightening verse
To a buxom girl in Luxembourg

Ask me, ask me, ask me
Ask me, ask me, ask me

Because if it’s not Love
Then it’s the bomb, the bomb, the bomb,
the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb
That will bring us together

Nature is a language – can’t you read ?
Nature is a language – can’t you read ?

So, ask me, ask me, ask me,
Ask me, ask me, ask me

Because if it’s not Love
Then it’s the bomb, the bomb, the bomb,
the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb
That will bring us together

If it’s not Love
Then it’s the bomb
Then it’s the bomb
That will bring us together

So, ask me, ask me, ask me,
Ask me, ask me, ask me
Oh, la…
