Don't Stop Believin'

Sometimes it's really hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Every phase of my life, it always comes back to me. Some would call that line vague and ambiguous. I would agree.
 
Never stop believing in yourself. Never stop believing that things will get better. Never stop believing that you can conquer all obstacles. Never stop believing you'll find the light on the darkest of your days.
 
 
"Don't Stop Believin'"
Just a small town girl
Livin' in a lonely world
She took the midnight train
Goin' anywhere
Just a city boy
Born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight train
Goin' anywhere

A singer in a smokey room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching
In the night
Streetlights, people
Livin' just to find emotion
Hidin', somewhere in the night

Workin' hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin' anything to roll the dice
Just one more time
Some will win
Some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching
In the night
Streetlights, people
Livin' just to find emotion
Hidin', somewhere in the night

[Instrumental Interlude]

Don't stop believin'
Hold on to the feelin'
Streetlights, people
Don't stop believin'
Hold on
Streetlights, people

All She Wrote

Yes, this was officially released in 90. But it counts. Look at that gorgeous hair.
 
 
"All She Wrote"

Bye-bye baby bye-bye
That was all she wrote

I got home late on a Saturday night
And I knew right away something wasn't right
I knew she was gone
She took all I had, but left a hole in my heart
Should've known it'd go bad right from the start
What did I do wrong

I can't understand how she would leave me this way
With nothing to say
Then I found the note on the door
It said good-bye and she don't want me no more

Bye-bye baby, bye-bye she said in the letter
And that was all she wrote
Guess this is good-bye, guess this is forever
And that was all she wrote

I called on the phone but she wasn't there
Should've known all along that she just didn't care
Why did she have to go
Now I look at her picture and I wonder why
She left me this way - why did she say good-bye
I guess I'll never know

I can't understand how she would leave me this way
With nothing to say
I remember the note on the door
It said good-bye and she don't want me no more

Bye-bye baby, bye-bye she said in the letter
And that was all she wrote
Guess this is good-bye, guess this is forever
And that was all she wrote
 
Bye-bye baby, bye-bye she said in the letter
And that was all she wrote
Guess this is good-bye, guess this is forever
And that was all she wrote
 
Baby, bye-bye she said in the letter
And that was all she wrote
Guess this is good-bye, guess this is forever
And that was all she wrote

Love Song

I'm betting this is the song that comes to mind whenever anyone hears the name Tesla. Me and this song go way back and have a lot of special memories. I pray you've found your love made just for two. 
 
 
"Love Song"
So you think that it's over, say your love has finally reached the end
Any time you call, night or day, I'll be right there for you
If you need a friend

It's gonna take a little time, I know, time is sure to mend your broken heart
But don't you even worry, pretty darlin', 'cos I know you'll find love again

Yeah
Love is all around you, love is knockin' outside your door
Waitin' for you is this love made just for two
Keep an open heart and you'll find love again, I know

Love is all around you, yeah, love is knockin' outside your door
Waitin' for you is this love made just for two
Keep an open heart and you'll find love again, I know

[Solo]

Love will find a way - darlin', love is gonna find a way
Find its way back to you
Love will find a way - so look around, open your eyes
Love is gonna find a way
Love is gonna, love is gonna find a way, yeah
Love will find a way - love is gonna find a way back to you, yeah I know

I know, I know, I know, I know

Close My Eyes Forever

I was going to do a different Lita song but this one just fits today.
 
 
"Close My Eyes Forever"
Baby
I get so scared inside, and I don't really understand
Is it love that's on my mind, or is it fantasy?

Heaven
Is in the palm of my hand, and it's waiting here for you
What am I supposed to do with a childhood tragedy?
If I close my eyes forever
Will it all remain unchanged?
If I close my eyes forever
Will it all remain the same?
Sometimes
It's hard to hold on
So hard to hold on to my dreams
It isn't always what it seems
When you're face to face with me

You're like a dagger
And stick me in the heart
And taste the blood from my blade
And when we sleep, would you shelter me
In your warm and darkened grave?

If I close my eyes forever
Will it all remain unchanged?
If I close my eyes forever
Will it all remain the same?

Will you ever take me?
No, I just can't take the pain
But would you ever trust me?
No, I'll never feel the same, Oh

I know I've been so hard on you
I know I've told you lies
If I could have just one more wish
I'd wipe the cobwebs from my eyes

If I close my eyes forever
Will it all remain unchanged?
If I close my eyes forever
Will it all remain the same?

Close your eyes
Close your eyes
You gotta close your eyes for me

Give It To Me Good

I think headbanging is a direct result of hairbands wanting to wave around all that pretty hair. I guess that means I might look silly doing it with my hair cut shoulder-length, right?

When was the last time you thought of this band? ;-)


"Give It To Me Good"
Well, hey hey baby, tell me what's your name?From the way you look and the way you dressI can tell you ain't got no shameAnd that's alright 'cause I'm just a man

Say you're from the city, it all moves so fastGot your fancy cars and your diamond ringsYou don't need a love to lastAnd that's alright, I'm just a man, baby

So take me home tonightLike you know that you shouldWhen you're ready to be badJust give it, give it to me good

Me, I'm just a rocker, ain't got much to sayI never did things by the rulesAlways did things my wayAnd that's alright 'cause that's the way I am anyway

My father was a teacher and he taught me how to liveHe said, "Son, you gotta be someone"Not taking more than you giveAnd that's alright, that's the way I am

So take me home tonightLike you know that you shouldWhen you're ready to be badJust give, give it to me good

Give it, give it to me goodGive it, give it to me goodGive it, give it to me goodGive it, give it to me good

Well, come on, come on, come onGive it, give it to me good

Give it, give it to me goodGive it

Now that we're togetherI'm gonna show you a thing or twoLittle girl, you got a lot to learnI'm gonna take you to my schoolAnd make you feel alright 'cause I'm a man, I'm a man

Give it to me goodGive it, give it to me goodGive it, give it to me goodGive it, give it to me goodGive it, give it to me good

Give itGive itGive itGive it

Paradise City

I still love the grit that is GNR. I think this is the first album I bought that had the parental advisory regarding explicit lyrics. All because of the f-word. Thank you, Tipper Gore.
 
 
 
"Paradise City"

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home
Just a' urchin
livin' under the street
I'm a hard case
that's tough to beat
I'm your charity case
So buy me somethin' to eat
I'll pay you at another time
Take it to the end of the line

Ragz to richez or so they say
Ya gotta-keep pushin'
for the fortune and fame
It's all a gamble
When it's just a game
Ya treat it like a capital crime
Everybody's doin' their time

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home
 
Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home
Strapped in the chair
of the city's gas chamber
Why I'm here I can't quite remember
The surgeon general says
it's hazardous to breathe
I'd have another cigarette
but I can't see
Tell me who you're gonna believe

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home
 
Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home

So far away
So far away
So far away
So far away

Captain America's been torn apart
Now he's a court jester
with a broken heart
He said-
Turn me around and
take me back to the start
I must be losin' my mind-
"Are you blind?"
I've seen it all a million times
Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home
Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Oh won't you please take me home
Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home
Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Oh won't you please take me home

Carry On

I think this might be my favorite Manowar song. I often hear this one in my brain when I'm having a rough day because we must always carry on.
 
 
"Carry On"
 
The north star always guides me
When winter skies are gray
And I wait for sun when all are one
I shall not betray
Calling at me
Im waiting when all are led astray

Carry on my sons forever
Carry on when I am gone
Carry on when the day is long
Forever carry on
For as long as we're together
Then forever carry on

Darkness all around us
We don't close our eyes
No ones gonna ground us
We were burn to fly
Cominat us no stopping
Born to amplify

Carry on my sons forever
Carry on when I am gone
Carry on when the day is long
Forever carry on
For as long as we're together
Then forever carry on

Yea,be my brother
Fight to stay alive
All the world can't change us
With all their burned-out jive
Come get us now were waiting
We wont run and hide

Carry on my sons forever
Carry on when I am gone
Carry on when the day is long
Forever carry on
For as long as were together
Then forever carry on

Now we're all together
Lets sing a fighting song
One hundred thousand riders
We can't all be wrong
Comin' at us no stopping
Always carry on

Carry on my sons forever
Carry on when I am gone
Carry on when the day is long
Forever carry on
For as long as were together
Then forever carry on

Beautiful

I don't know where I saw this or who wrote it, but I found it in a stack of papers on my desk at work and needed to share it.


Hate is a connection that forever binds
So free your heart and free your mind
Release the memories that cut your soul
To allow your spirit to be free and whole


If you read this and you know who wrote it, please let me know in the comments section so I can give appropriate credit.

Love and Light.

Carrie

I can't help but think of my sister when I hear this song, regardless of the actual song content. She's such a wonderful, loving, giving, amazing person. I'm afraid I don't tell her often enough how much I love her.
 
 
"Carrie"
When light goes down,
I see no reason
For you to cry
We've been through this before
In every time,
in every season,
God knows I've tried
So please don't ask for more.

Can't you see it in my eyes
This might be our last goodbye

Carrie, Carrie, things they change my friend
Carrie, Carrie, maybe we'll meet again
Somewhere again

I read your mind,
with no intentions
Of being unkind,
I wish I could explain
It all takes time,
a whole lot of patience
If it's a crime,
how come I feel no pain
 
Can't you see it in my eyes
This might be our last goodbye

Carrie, Carrie, things they change my friend
Carrie, Carrie, maybe we'll meet again
 
Can't you see it in my eyes
This might be our last goodbye

Carrie, Carrie, things they change, Carrie, Carrie, Carrie
Carrie, Carrie, maybe we'll meet again
Oh somewhere again
When the lights go down

You Shook Me All Night Long

A dance is not a dance without this song. High school dances, anniversary parties, wedding receptions. They are all incomplete if this song isn't on the playlist.  And I will headbang throughout it, whether my hair is shoulder length or half-way down my back. High heels or bare feet.
 
 
"You Shook Me All Night Long"
She was a fast machine she kept her motor clean
She was the best damn woman that I ever seen
She had the sightless eyes telling me no lies
Knocking me out with those American thighs
Taking more than her share
Had me fighting for air
She told me to come but I was already there
Cause the walls start shaking
The earth was quaking
My mind was aching
And we were making it
And you shook me all night long
Yeah you shook me all night long

I'm working double time on the seduction line
She's one of a kind she's just mine all mine
Wanted no applause it's just another course
Made a meal outta me
And come back for more
Had to cool me down to take another round
Now I'm back in the ring to take another swing
Cause the walls were shaking the earth was quaking
My mind was aching
And we were making it
And you shook me all night long
Yeah you shook me all night long
Knocked me out I said you
Shook me all night long
You had me shaking and you
Shook me all night long
Yeah you shook me
When you took me

You really took me and you
Shook me all night long
You shook me all night long
Yeah, yeah, you shook me all night long
You really got me and you
Shook me all night long
Yeah you shook me
Yeah you shook me
All night long

When the Children Cry

When I was young, I knew I'd never bring children into this crazy world and thrust such madness upon them.  Instead, I brought children into this world and feel that I've been successful in thrusting some love upon this crazy world. I'm proud of the wonderful, caring, beautiful young women I've raised. I'm proud of the strong, loving women they've become in the face of such an adverse world.




"When The Children Cry"
Little child
Dry your crying eyes
How can I explain
The fear you feel inside
'Cause you were born
Into this evil world
Where man is killing man
And no one knows just why

What have we become
Just look what we have done
All that we destroyed
You must build again

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
'Cause when the children sing
Then the new world begins

Little child
You must show the way
To a better day
For all the young
'Cause you were born
For the world to see
That we all can live
With love and peace

No more presidents
And all the wars will end
One united world under God

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
'Cause when the children sing
Then the new world begins

What have we become
Just look what we have done
All that we destroyed
You must build again

No more presidents
And all the wars will end
One united world under God

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
'Cause when the children sing
The new world begins

What have we become
Just look what we have done
All that we destroyed
You must build again

No more presidents
And all the wars will end
One united world under God

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
'Cause when the children fight
Let them know it ain't right
When the children pray
Let them know the way
'Cause when the children sing
Then the new world begins

Don't Close Your Eyes

If you've never been choked by the bony fingers of depression, you shouldn't judge those who struggle with it.
 
 

"Don't Close Your Eyes"

Whatcha doing out in the night time
Why'd ya' call me on the phone
Your mama can't solve your problems
When's daddy ever gonna get home
So you did your little move and cried
In the middle of a suicide

Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes
Don't sing your last lullaby

There's no one there to hold you
No one hears your scream
You live life up and down
your nightmare's are your dreams
I know it's lonely when your hanging 'round
Don't ya' take it lying down - no, no
Hold on - Hold on tight
I'll make everything all right
Wake up - Don't go to sleep
I pray the lord your soul to keep

Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes
Don't sing your last lullaby

Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes

Sometimes She Cries

We carry around pieces of our past. If we can't acknowledge them, accept them, embrace them, they haunt us forever.


"Sometimes She Cries"

Mercy don't think she's pretty no more,
Starin' at the stars through her back screen door,
She tries and tries to make it all work out,
No matter what she does,
She's left standin' in the middle of doubt,
In a lonely night,
And in the pourin' rain,
You can count on me,

Sometimes she cries,
When she's alone at night,
Sometimes she weeps,
When she's feelin' cold and weak,
Sometimes the pain,
It just tears her up inside,
Sometimes she cries,
Ooh, I wonder why,

Mercy don't have a lover no more,
She plays with her pillow,
Stares at the bedroom floor,
Used to have a million,
They've come and gone,
No matter what she does,
She can't figure out what she's doin' wrong,
In a lonely night,
And in the pourin' rain,
You can count on me,

Sometimes she cries,
When she's alone at night,
Sometimes she weeps,
When she's feelin' cold and weak,
Sometimes the pain,
Oh, it tears her up inside,
Sometimes she cries,
Ooh, yeah

Livin', lovin', give it everything you've got,
After all the heartache,
Maybe give love just one more shot yeah,

In a lonely night,
And in the pourin' rain,
The only thing I really wanna know is why,

Sometimes she cries,
When she's alone at night,
Sometimes she weeps,
When she's feelin cold and weak,
Sometimes the pain,
Oh, it tears her up inside,
Sometimes she cries
Oooh, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Dream Warriors

I take my Freddie Krueger very seriously. Which is precisely why I only went on one date with Wayne.  He asked me out. We went to the movies to see the latest installment of the Nightmare on Elm Street series (my choice).  He made fun of the movie: ALL THROUGH OUT THE MOVIE.
Buh-bye.


"Dream Warriors"
 
I lie awake and dread the lonely nights
I'm not alone
I wonder if these heavy eyes
Can face the unknown
When I close my eyes I realize
You'll come my way
I'm standing in the night alone
Forever together

We're the dream warriors
Don't wanna dream no more
We're the dream warriors
And maybe tonight
Maybe tonight you'll be gone

I feel the touch comin' over me
I can't explain
I hear the voices callin' out
Callin' my name
It's the same desire to feel the fire
That's comin' your way
I'm standing in the night alone
Forever together

We're the dream warriors
Don't wanna dream no more
We're the dream warriors
Maybe tonight you'll be gone
We're the dream warriors
Ain't gonna dream no more
And maybe tonight
Maybe tonight you'll be gone

Sweet revenge, the bitter end
This time
Break the spell of illusion
Bound together waiting for you

Dream warriors
Don't wanna dream no more
We're the dream warriors
Maybe tonight you'll be gone
We're the dream warriors
Ain't gonna dream no more
We're the dream warriors
And maybe tonight
Maybe tonight you'll be gone
Dream warriors
Maybe tonight you'll be gone
Dream warriors, forever
Dream warriors
Maybe tonight you'll be gone
Dream warriors

I Am A Witch


 
 
I AM A WITCH

Being a Witch? I am a Witch )O(

I am seen in many forms, I am a young maid, a loving but firm mother, an old hag, an Appalachian granny, a Hoodoo mama, a priestess of old Gods and Goddesses, a battlesister for the earth, a coiling Shakti snake.

I am a Witch. My worship is communing with the Divine through Nature. I try to grow vegetables and herbs in the earth so that I might use the healing powers that exist within Nature to help myself and others.

I am a Witch. I perform my rituals in Sacred places that I create or that already exist indoors and outdoors. 

 The four Watchtowers with the Elemental Powers and their Guardians are forever with me to aid and guard me.

 I eternally stand in the Crossroads between the Cosmos above, the Planet below, and the Spiritual within.

 I am whole within the Universe.

I am a Witch. I journey in meditations, rituals, and dreams. I use hallowed and consecrated tools to aid me on my magickal journeys. These include cauldrons, crystals, candles, incense, ritual oils, water, salt, soil, feathers, bells, brooms, rattles, drums, wands, staffs, blades, mirrors, Tarot cards, and Rune stones.

My spirit travels throughout Time and Space; and I return from my journeys with insight, knowledge, and power.

 I go between the three worlds to heal, grow, and transform. Empathy, compassion, understanding, and mercy are natural, not supernatural, and they are a part of my daily life.

I am a Witch. I follow the Seasons and the Elements and the Circle of Life. I endeavor to keep all parts of my Self healthy and balanced. I work to restore balance in my environment and in Nature. I hear the anguish of Mother Earth, saddened with the damage being done to Nature by human kind.
I am alarmed by pollution and destruction of the Air, the Earth, and the Waters. I am dismayed by the Spiritual pollution of hatred, greed, bigotry, intolerance, racism, addiction, violence and despair.

I work and conjure each and every day to restore balance, peace and harmony in the lives of others and the Planet.

 I try my best to live each day in harmony with others and with Nature.

I am a Witch.

Blessed be ♥ )O( ♥

Shake Me

I was gonna do Gypsy Road today, but Pete posted it on my wall last night (great mind think alike, I tell ya!!). So I chose another Cinderella song for the day!
 
 
"Shake Me"
All right yea
I met this girl around quarter to ten
We made it once she said "make me again"
She wrapped her love around me all night long
In the mornin' we were still goin' strong

Now let me tell ya it sure feels good
First time I saw that girl I knew it would
Now let me tell ya it sure felt right
No pullin' teeth she didn't want to fight she said

Shake me
All night
She said
Shake me
Shake it don't break it baby
Shake me
All night
She said
All night long
All night long baby

Screamed and scratched and rolled out of the bed
I never really got her out of my head
And now and then she makes those social calls
Gives me a squeeze gets me kickin' the walls

Now let me tell ya it still feels tight
And we were shakin' after every bite
I feel her comin' in the middle of the night
screamin' higher

Shake me
All night
She said
Shake me
Shake it don't break it baby
Shake me
All night
She said
Shake me
ooo yea

All night, keep the fire burnin' cause we're doin' all right
All night, come on and shake it right

Shake me
Shake me
Shake me
Shake me
Shake me
All night
She said
Shake me
Shake it don't break it baby
Shake me
All night
She said
Shake me
ooo yea

Shake me
Shake me
Shake me
Shake me

Love Walks In

I considered whether I'd have to temporarily veer from the 80s hair-band theme to do something for Valentine's Day, but Van Halen came through!
 
 
"Love Walks In"
Contact is all it takes
To change your life to lose your place in time
Contact! Asleep or awake
Coming around you may wake up to find
Questions deep within your eyes,
No more than ever
Things you've never realized

So when you sense a change
Nothing feels the same
All your dreams are strange, love comes walkin' in
Some kind of alien
Waits for the opening
Then simply pulls a string

Another world, some other time
You lay your sanity on the line
Familiar faces familiar sights
Reach back remember with all your might
Ohh there she stands in a silken gown
Silver lights shining down

So when you sense a change
Nothing feels the same
All your dreams are strange, love comes walkin' in
Some kind of alien
Waits for the opening
Then simply pulls a string
Love comes walkin' in

[Solo]

Sleep and dream is all I crave
I travel far across the Milky Way
To my master I become a slave
Til we meet again some other day
Where silence speaks as loud as war
And the earth returns to what it was before

So when you sense a change
Nothing feels the same
All your dreams are strange, love comes walkin' in
Some kind of alien
Waits for the opening
Then simply pulls a string
Love comes walkin' in

I Don't Believe in Love

I'm sure I'm not the only person whose first thought, upon hearing the name Queensryche, is Silent Lucidity. That happens to have debuted in Spring of 90, by the way. So I had to step back in an effort to maintain the integrity of the 80s theme.
 
Okay, not really.  There are several albums that came out in 1990 that truly qualify as a part of the 80s hair-band theme. But why not go for something that isn't the first one popping in your mind?
 
 
"I Don't Believe In Love"
I awoke on impact
Under surveillance from the camera eye
Searching high and low
The criminal mind found at the scene of the crime
Handcuffed and blind, I didn't do it
She said she loved me
I guess I never knew
But do we ever, ever really know?
She said she'd meet me on the other side
But I knew right then, I'd never find her

I don't believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don't believe in love
It's never worth the pain that you feel

No more nightmares, I've seen them all
From the day I was born, they've haunted my every move
Every open hand's there to push and shove
No time for love it doesn't matter
She made a difference
I guess she had a way
Of making every night seem bright as day
Now I walk in shadows, never see the light
She must have lied 'cause she never said goodbye

I don't believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don't believe in love
I'll just pretend she never was real
I don't believe in love I need to forget her face, I see it still
I don't believe in love
It's never worth the pain that you feel

No chance for contact
There's no raison d'etre
My only hope is one day I'll forget
The pain of knowing what can never be
With or without love it's all the same to me

I don't believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don't believe in love
I'll just pretend she never was real
I don't believe in love
I need to forget her face, I see it still
I don't believe in love
It's never worth the pain that you feel

Don't Go Away Mad

So many Crue options to choose from... I went with this one because...
well...
I just like it.
 
 
 
"Don't Go Away Mad"

We could sail away
Or catch a freight train
Or a rocketship into outer space
Nothin' left to do
Too many things were said
To ever make it feel
Like yesterday did

Seasons must change
Separate paths, separate ways
If we blame it on anything
Let's blame it on the rain

I knew it all along
I'd have to write this song
Too young to fall in love
Guess we knew it all along

That's alright, that's okay
We were walkin' through some youth
Smilin' through some pain
That's alright, that's okay
Let's turn the page

My friends called today
Down from L.A.
They were shooting pool all night
Sleeping half the day
They said I could crash
If I could find my own way
I told them you were leaving
On a bus to go away

That's alright, that's okay
We were two kids in love
Trying to find our way
Thats's alright, that's okay
Held our dreams in our hands
Let our minds run away
That's alright, that's okay
We were walkin' through some youth
Smilin' through some pain
That's alright, let's turn the page
And remember what I say girl
And it goes this way

Girl, don't go away mad...
Girl, just go away

Seventeen

Here's the thing about all this hair band music: today, we laugh, giggle and snicker at all that hair. But underneath it all, we're very serious about our love of the music. The talent of the musicians is awe-inspiring.
 
Yes, some of them are also very pleasant to look at. I think Kip's eyes will forever haunt me. No, I'm not complaining. :-)
 
One more thing: this song takes on a whole new meaning as the mother of two beautiful girls.
 
 
I saw sparks fly from the corner of my eye
And when I turned it was love at first sight
I said,"Please excuse me, I didn't catch you name
It'd be a shame not to see you again"
And just when I thought
She was comin' to my door
She whispered sweet
And brought me to the floor
She said, "I'm only seventeen
I'll show you love like you've never seen"
She's only seventeen
Daddy says she's too young
But she's old enough for me
Come to my place, we can talk it over
Everythin' goin' down in your head
She said take it easy, I need some time
Time to work it out, to make you mine
And just when I thought
She was coming to my door
She whispered sweet
And brought me to the floor
She said,"I'm only seventeen
You ain't seen love
Ain't seen nothin' like me"
She's only seventeen, seventeen
Such a bad girl, loves to work me over time
Feels good dancin' close to the borderline
She's a magic mountain, she's a leather glove
She's my soul, it must be love
She's only seventeen
The girl she gives me love
Like I've never seen
She's only seventeen
Daddy says she's too young
But she's old enough for me
She's everythin' I need
Daddy says, she's too young
But she's old enough
Old enough for me, yeah yeah

Love in an Elevator

And the 80's hair continues. This band has been rockin' since 1970! 43 years later, they're still rockin'!!


"Love In An Elevator"

Workin' like a dog fo de boss man
Workin' for de company
I'm bettin' on the dice I'm tossin'
I'm gonna have a fantasy
But where am I gonna look?
They tell me that love is blind
I really need a girl like an open book
to read between the lines

Love in an elevator
Livin' it up when I'm goin' down
Love in an elevator
Lovin' it up 'til I hit the ground

Jacki's in the elevator
Lingerie second floor
She said 'can I see you later
And love you just a little more?'
I kinda hope we get stuck
nobody gets out alive
She said I'll show ya how to fax in the mailroom honey
and have you home by five

Love in an elevator
Livin' it up when I'm goin' down
Love in an elevator
Lovin' it up 'til I hit the ground

In the air, in the air, honey one more time not it ain't fair
Love in an elevator
Lovin' it up when I'm goin' down

Love in an
elevator
goin' down

Love in an elevator
Lovin' it up when I'm goin' down
Love in an elevator
Lovin' it up when I hit the ground

Gonna be a penthouse pauper
Gonna be a millionaire
I'm gonna be a real fast talker
and have me a love affair
Gotta get my timin' right
It's a test that I gotta pass
I'll chase you all the way to teh stairway honey
Kiss your sassafras

Love in an elevator
Lovin' it up when I'm goin' down
Love in an elevator
Livin' it up 'til I hit the ground

Do you care? Do you care?
Honey one more time now it ain't fair.
Love in an elevator
Livin' it up when I'm goin' down

Bang Your Head

I have another headache today, and it makes me wanna bang my head. So on the continuing theme of 80's rock, I present a little...Riot. ;-)
 
 
  "Bang Your Head"
Well I'm an axegrinder piledriver
Mother says that I never never mind her
Got no brains I'm insane
Teacher says that I'm one big pain
I'm like a laser 6-streamin' razor
I got a mouth like an alligator
I want it louder
More power
I'm gonna rock ya till it strikes the hour

Bang your head! metal health'll drive you mad
Band your head! metal health'll drive you mad

Well I'm frustrated
Outdated I really want to be over-rated
I'm a finder and I'm a keeper
I'm not a loser and I ain't no weeper
I got the boys to make the noise
Won't ever let up
Hope it annoys you
Join the pack
Fill the crack
Well now you're here
There's no way back

Bang your head! metal health'll drive you mad
Bang your head! metal health'll drive you mad

Metal health'll cure your crazy
Metal health'll cure your mad
Metal health is what we all need
It's what you have to have

Bang your head
Wake the dead
We're all metal mad
It's all you have
So bang your head
And raise the dead
Oh yeah!
Metal health
It's not too bad
Bad bad

Oh get your straight-jackets on tonight oh
Bang your head! metal health'll drive you mad
The bad boys are gonna set you right rock on rock on rock on
Bang your head! metal health'll drive you mad
Bang your head!

Don't Tread On Me

Okay, so it's not REALLY 80's hair, exactly...the album was released in 90, but, but, but... that school year started in 89, right?! I love Tommy's shorts and boots in this!
 
 
"Don't Tread On Me"
 
Freedom rider on a midnight cruise
On my way I got nothing to lose
Sister mercy gonna take my hand
Lead me over to the promised land

But you'd better not set your sights on me
'Cause it just might spoil your victory

Don't you dare, don't you tread on me
Don't you tread on me
Don't you try and make some fool of me
Don't you tread on me

We walked the ground of ancient ones
Lit the fire with a rising sun
You and me we got a full on rage
Won't befooled no I won't be caged
Make love not war was you claim to fame
Now you're takin' me down well I won't be tamed
Don't you dare, don't you tread on me
Don't you tread on me
Don't you try and make some fool of me
Don't you tread on me

You better turn and walk away
Don't tread on me
And you just might live another day
And I know you need to hear me say
All I want is you

Don't you dare, don't you tread on me
Don't you tread on me
Don't you try and make some fool of me
Don't you tread on
Don't you dare, don't you tread on me
Don't you tread on me
Don't you try and lay yourself on me
Don't you tread on
Don't you dare, don't you tread on me
Don't you tread on me
Don't you dare forget your history
Don't you tread on me
