May It Be – Enya

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk a lonely road
Oh, how far you are from home

Mornie utulie [Darkness has come]
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantie [Darkness has fallen]
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadow’s call
Will fly away
May it be you journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornie utulie [Darkness has come]
Believe and you will find your way

Mornie alantie [Darkness has fallen]
A promise lives within you now
A promise lives within you now

A Girl Should Know Better – Blondie

Pretty muddy sound from a live performance at CBGBs in 1975. Shame they never recorded this one – the lyrics are quite clever.

Let me tell you ’bout this boy I know
He thinks he’ll get the best of me
He tries to win my affection
With a fancy selection
Of sweet talk and flattery

What my mama had told me
What my mama done told me
Is what this is leadin’ to

Well, a girl should know better
And I do

I won’t say he’s cute
He’s got the money to boot
That he doesn’t mind spendin’ on me
I let him see me a lot
I figure, why not?
There’s worse places I could be

And I have to remind him
That he sure didn’t find himself
A girl he can be boss to

Well, a girl should know better
And I do

I wasn’t born yesterday
A girl’s gotta grow up fast these days
All these men seem nice at first
After a while they get bad and get worse

Well, my mama didn’t teach me
Why I shouldn’t let you reach me
And I’m glad that’s a lesson I missed
[hums two lines]
If I feel it when we kiss

And when the preacher asked
If I’m ready for the task
To love and honor you
I say a girl should know better
And I do

And when the preacher asked
If I’m ready for the task
To love and honor you
I say a girl should know better
And I do

I say a girl should know better
Oh, ’cause I do

I say a girl should know better
Ahhh – and I do!

Only Happy When It Rains – Garbage

I’m only happy when it rains
I’m only happy when it’s complicated
And though I know you can’t appreciate it
I’m only happy when it rains

You know I love it when the news is bad
And why it feels so good to feel so sad
I’m only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me

I’m only happy when it rains
I feel good when things are going wrong
I only listen to the sad, sad songs
I’m only happy when it rains

I only smile in the dark
My only comfort is the night gone black
I didn’t accidentally tell you that
I’m only happy when it rains

You’ll get the message by the time I’m through
When I complain about me and you
I’m only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down

You can keep me company
As long as you don’t care

I’m only happy when it rains
You wanna hear about my new obsession?
I’m ridin’ high upon a deep depression
I’m only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me)

I’m only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me)
I’m only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me)
I’m only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me)
I’m only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me)

You Belong To The City – Glenn Frey

The sun goes down
The night rolls in
You can feel it starting all over again
The moon comes up
And the music calls
You’re gettin’ tired of starin’ at the same four walls
You’re out of your room
And down on the street
Movin’ through the crowd in the midnight heat
The traffic roars
And the sirens scream
You look at the faces
It’s just like a dream

Nobody knows where you’re goin’
Nobody cares where you’ve been

‘Cause you belong to the city
You belong to the night
Livin’ in a river of darkness
Beneath the neon light
You were born in the city
Concrete under your feet
It’s in your moves
It’s in your blood
You’re a man of the street

When you said goodbye
You were on the run
Tryin’ to get away from the things you’d done
Now you’re back again
And you’re feeling strange
So much has happened
But nothing has changed

You still don’t know where you’re goin’
You’re still just a face in the crowd

You belong to the city
You belong to the night
Livin’ in a river of darkness
Beneath the neon light
You were born in the city
Concrete under your feet
It’s in your blood
It’s in your moves
You’re a man of the street

You can feel it
You can taste it
You can see it
You can face it
You can hear it
You’re gettin’ near it
You want to make it
‘Cause you can take it

You belong to the city
You belong to the night
You belong to the city
You belong to the night
You belong
You belong
