    I love Vienna Teng's lyrics.


    Eric's Song - Vienna Teng

    strange how you know inside me
    I measure the time and I stand amazed
    strange how I know inside you
    my hand is outstretched toward the damp of the haze

    and of course I forgive
    I've seen how you live
    like a phoenix you rise from the ashes
    you pick up the pieces
    and the ghosts in the attic
    they never quite leave
    and of course I forgive
    you've seen how I live
    I've got darkness and fears to appease
    my voices and analogies
    ambitions like ribbons
    worn bright on my sleeve

    strange how we know each other

    strange how I fit into you
    there's a distance erased with the greatest of ease
    strange how you fit into me
    a gentle warmth filling the deepest of needs

    and with each passing day
    the stories we say
    draw us tighter into our addiction
    confirm our convictions
    that some kind of miracle
    passed on our heads
    and how I am sure
    like never before
    of my reasons for defying reason
    embracing the seasons
    we dance through the colors
    both followed and led

    strange how we fit each other

    strange how certain the journey
    time unfolds the petals for our eyes to see
    strange how this journey's hurting
    in ways we accept as part of fate's decree

    so we just hold on fast
    acknowledge the past
    as lessons exquisitely crafted
    painstakingly drafted
    to carve us as instruments
    that play the music of life
    for we don't realize
    our faith in the prize
    unless it's been somehow elusive
    how swiftly we choose it
    the sacred simplicity
    of you at my side


    Decade and One - Vienna Teng

    once when I was thirty-one
    I woke in the dead of night
    and heard the vastness of the snowfall outside
    slipped downstairs in my bare feet
    soon forgotten freezing
    and pour a milk glass full
    to wait out the tide

    been a decade and one
    been a decade and one my friends
    a decade and one
    since I

    as the white went down
    I thought of the child upstairs
    I thought of the God upstairs
    that I couldn't believe
    I thought of the chosen man
    asleep on his side of the bed
    how green becomes wood
    in a family tree

    been a decade and one
    been a decade and one so soon
    a decade and one
    since I stood
    so proud
    and so unsure

    ebony glowing by the window there
    as always
    fingers kissed the keys oh so tenderly
    cool ivory returned in kind
    I thought of anger and adulation
    and the taste of dreams realized
    and the waste dreams realized leave behind

    a decade and one
    a decade and one
    I said out loud
    a decade and one
    and I am here
    and I am here still standing



    Drought - Vienna Teng

    summer move forward and stitch me the fabric of fall
    wrap life in the brilliance of death to humble us all
    how sweet is the day
    I'm craving a darkness
    as I sit tucked away with my back to the wall

    and the taste of dried-up hopes in my mouth
    and the landscape of merry and desperate drought
    how much longer dear angels
    let winterlight come
    and spread your white sheets over my empty house

    summer move forward and leave your heat anchored in dust
    forgotten him, cheated him, painted illusions of lust
    now language escape, fugitive of forgiveness
    leaving as trace only circles of rust

    and the taste of dried-up hopes in my mouth
    and the landscape of merry and desperate drought
    how much longer dear angels
    come break me with ice
    let the water of calm trickle over my doubts

    come let me drown
    angels no fire no salt on the plow
    carry me down
    bury me down

    and the taste of dried-up hopes in my mouth
    and the landscape of merry and desperate drought
    once I knew myself
    and with knowing came love
    I would know love again if I had faith enough
    too far is next spring and her jubilant shout
    so angels, inside
    is the only way out

    Seal- Kiss From a Rose

    There used to be a graying tower alone on the sea.
    You became the light on the dark side of me.
    Love remained a drug that's the high and not the pill.
    But did you know,
    That when it snows,
    My eyes become large and
    The light that you shine can be seen.
    Baby,
    I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grave.
    Ooh,
    The more I get of you,
    The stranger it feels, yeah.
    And now that your rose is in bloom.
    A light hits the gloom on the grave.
    There is so much a man can tell you,
    So much he can say.
    You remain,
    My power, my pleasure, my pain, baby
    To me you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny.
    Won't you tell me is that healthy, baby?
    But did you know,
    That when it snows,
    My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.
    Baby,
    I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grave.
    Ooh, the more I get of you
    The stranger it feels, yeah
    Now that your rose is in bloom.
    A light hits the gloom on the grave,
    I've been kissed by a rose on the grave,
    I've been kissed by a rose
    I've been kissed by a rose on the grave,
    ...And if I should fall along the way
    I've been kissed by a rose
    ...been kissed by a rose on the grave.
    There is so much a man can tell you,
    So much he can say.
    You remain
    My power, my pleasure, my pain.
    To me you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny, yeah
    Won't you tell me is that healthy, baby.
    But did you know,
    That when it snows,
    My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.
    Baby,
    I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grave.
    Ooh, the more I get of you
    The stranger it feels, yeah
    Now that your rose is in bloom,
    A light hits the gloom on the grave.
    Yes I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grave
    Ooh, the more I get of you
    The stranger it feels, yeah
    And now that your rose is in bloom
    A light hits the gloom on the grave
    Now that your rose is in bloom,
    A light hits the gloom on the grave.

    Yoko Kanno- Adieu [sung by Emily Bindiger]

    Been a fool, been a clown
    Lost my way from up and down
    And I know, yes I know
    And I see it in your eyes
    That you really weren't suprised at me at all
    Not at all
    And I know by your smile it's you.

    Don't care for me, don't cry
    Let's say goodbye, Adieu.
    It's time to say goodbye, I know that in time
    It will just fade away, it's time to say goodbye.

    I stand alone, and watch you fade away like clouds
    High up and in the sky
    I'm strong and so cold
    As I stand alone
    Goodbye, So long, Adieu.

    Oh how I love you so, lost in those memories
    And now you've gone
    I feel the pain, feeling like a fool, Adieu

    My love for you burns deep
    Inside me, so strong
    Embers of times we had
    And now here I stand lost in a memory
    I see your face and smile.

    Oh how I love you so, lost in those memories
    And now you've gone
    I feel the pain, feeling like a fool, Adieu

    My love for you burns deep
    Inside me, so strong
    Embers of times we had
    And now here I stand lost in a memory
    I see your face and smile.

    Steve Conte [and the Seatbelts]- Call Me


    I close my eyes and I keep seeing things
    Rainbow waterfalls
    Sunny liquid dreams
    Confusion creeps inside me raining doubt
    Gotta get to you
    But I don't know how
    Call me call me
    Let me know it's alright
    Call me call me
    Don't you think it's 'bout time
    Please won't you call and
    Ease my mind
    Reasons for me to find you
    Peace of mind
    What can I do
    To get me to you

    I had your number quite some time ago
    Back when we were young
    But I had to grow
    Ten thousand years I've searched it seems and now
    Gotta get to you
    Won't you tell me how
    Call me call me
    Let me know you are there
    Call me call me
    I wanna know you still care
    Come on now won't you
    Ease my mind
    Reasons for me to find you
    Peace of mind
    What can I do
    To get me to you
    Come on now won't you
    Ease my mind
    Reasons for me to find you
    Peace of mind
    Reasons for livin my life
    Ease my mind
    Reasons for me to know you
    Peace of mind
    What can I do
    To get me to you-----------------
    Steve Conte - No Reply

    Like the perfect ending
    It won't be long
    Till everything I've ruined has seen me gone
    In time, I pray you'll forgive
    Now you know the man I am
    Can you forgive me?

    I fall
    Like the sands of time
    Like some broken rhyme
    At feet no longer there

    *If only I could call the rain to melt and wash away the pain you feel
    I would
    You gave yourself to me and showed me what the truth could be
    For that, I say thank you
    This was my life
    It never made much sense to me

    With every lie that I lived
    Part of me would fade
    Into this empty shadow I've become
    And now I feel so numb
    I no longer know myself
    But I still know you

    I call
    And there is no reply
    Like some phantom cry
    On ears too far away

    I close my eyes and watch as my life passes by
    The only thing I see is you
    For all the times you walked the line for me and standing by my side
    I say thank you
    Here lies my life
    It never felt that real to me

    You'll always mean so much to me
    And there's no reply
    And there's no reply
    You'll never know how much you meant to me

    Repeat *

    I close my eyes and watch as my life passes by
    The only thing I see is you
    For all the times you walked the line for me and standing by my side
    I say thank you
    Here lies my life
    It never felt that real to me

    You in my life
    It all meant so much more to me


    [The last few songs are from Cowboy BeBop soundtracks. Thus making me believe it is the one anime still with the greatest music ever ]
    Don't hate me because you're beautiful.

    Several from one of my absolute favorite bands
    Covenant- Bullet
    time is like a bullet from behind
    I run for cover just like you
    time is like a liquid in my hands
    I swim for dry land just like you

    time is like a blanket on my face
    I try to be here just like you
    time is just a fiction of our minds
    I will survive and so will you

    we are the only ones right now that are celebrating
    and we are joining hands right now
    we are the only ones right now that are suffocating
    we are the dying ones right now

    as the water grinds the stone
    we rise and fall
    as our ashes turn to dust
    we shine like stars


    kisses on the dancefloor in my past
    I need some comfort just like you
    beating like a bass drum time goes by
    I want the last dance just like you

    drowning in the flood of morning light
    I'm only human just like you
    do you hear the city waking up
    I will survive and so will you

    we are the ones the only ones
    we are the ones the dying ones
    we are the ones the only ones
    we are the ones and we are joining hands

    we are the only ones right now that are celebrating
    we are the dieing ones
    we are the only ones right now that are dieing
    and we are joining hands

    as the water grinds the stone
    we rise and fall
    as our ashes turn to dust
    we shine like stars


    Covenant- Call the Ships to Port
    a billion words ago
    the sailors disappeared
    a story for the children
    to rock them back to sleep

    a million burning books
    like torches in our hands
    a fabric of ideals
    to decorate our homes

    a thousand generations
    the soil on which we walk
    a mountain of mistakes
    for us to climb for pleasure

    a hundred clocks are ticking
    the line becomes a circle
    spin the wheel of fortune
    or learn to navigate

    [Chorus] a choir full of longing
    will call our ships to port
    the countless lonely voices
    like whispers in the dark [/Chorus]

    a second of reflection can
    take you to the moon
    the slightest hesitation can
    bring you down in flames

    a single spark of passion
    can change a man forever
    a moment in a lifetime
    is all it takes to break him

    a fraction of a heartbeat
    made us what we are
    a brother and a sister
    for better or for worse

    a billion words ago
    they sang a song of leaving
    an echo from the chorus
    will call them back again

    [Chorus]

    tonight we light the fires
    we call our ships to port
    tonight we walk on water
    and tomorrow well be gone

    Covenant- Flux
    No haven will embrace you
    no harbor keeps you safe
    your comrades will desert you
    no tower reaches heaven
    no fortress stands to last
    your desire makes you weak

    No science will be mastered
    no truth is absolute
    your children won't lament you
    no wisdom can be trusted
    no glory lasts forever
    your wishes wont be granted

    Like torches in the aeon flow
    even suns flicker and die
    forgotten as the ages grow
    eternity is not for you

    The Shins:

    "Sleeping Lessons"

    Go without,
    'Til the need seeps in,
    You're low anymore,
    Collect your novel petals for the stem,

    And glow,
    Glow,
    Melt and flow,
    Eviscerate your fragile frame,
    And spill it out in the ragged floor,
    A thousand different versions of yourself,

    And if the old guard still offend,
    They got nothing left on which you depend,
    So enlist every ounce,
    Of your bright blood,
    And off with their heads,

    Jump from a book,
    You're not obliged to swallow anything you despise,
    See, those unrepenting buzzards want your life,
    And they got no right,
    As sure as you have eyes,
    They got no right,

    Just put yourself in my new shoes,
    And see that I do what I do,
    Because the old guard still offend,
    We got nothing left on which we depend,
    So we waste every ounce,
    Of your bright blood,
    And off with their heads,

    Jump from a book,
    And you're not obliged,
    To swallow anything that you despise

    March of the Pigs - Nine Inch Nails

    Step right up march push
    Crawl right up on your knees
    Please greed feed (no time to hesitate)
    I want a little bit I want a piece of it I think hes losing it
    I want to watch it come down
    Dont like the look of it dont like the taste of it dont like the smell of it
    I want to watch it come down
    All the pigs are all lined up
    I give you all that you want
    Take the skin and peel it back
    Now doesnt that make you feel better?
    Shove it up inside surprise! lies
    Stains like the blood on your teeth
    Bite chew suck away the tender parts
    I want to break it up I want to smash it up I want to f**k it up
    I want to watch it come down
    Maybe afraid of it lets discredit it lets pick away at it
    I want to watch it come down
    All the pigs are all lined up
    I give you all that you want
    Take the skin and peel it back
    Now doesnt that make you feel better?
    The pigs have won tonight
    Now they can all sleep soundly
    And everything is all right

    Suzanne - Leonard Cohen

    Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
    You can hear the boats go by
    You can spend the night beside her
    And you know that she's half crazy
    But that's why you want to be there
    And she feeds you tea and oranges
    That come all the way from China
    And just when you mean to tell her
    That you have no love to give her
    Then she gets you on her wavelength
    And she lets the river answer
    That you've always been her lover
    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you know that she will trust you
    For you've touched her perfect body with your mind.

    And Jesus was a sailor
    When he walked upon the water
    And he spent a long time watching
    From his lonely wooden tower
    And when he knew for certain
    Only drowning men could see him
    He said "All men will be sailors then
    Until the sea shall free them"
    But he himself was broken
    Long before the sky would open
    Forsaken, almost human
    He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
    And you want to travel with him
    And you want to travel blind
    And you think maybe you'll trust him
    For he's touched your perfect body with his mind.

    Now Suzanne takes your hand
    And she leads you to the river
    She is wearing rags and feathers
    From Salvation Army counters
    And the sun pours down like honey
    On our lady of the harbour
    And she shows you where to look
    Among the garbage and the flowers
    There are heroes in the seaweed
    There are children in the morning
    They are leaning out for love
    And they will lean that way forever
    While Suzanne holds the mirror
    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you know that you can trust her
    For she's touched your perfect body with her mind.


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    The New by Interpol

    I wish I could live free
    I hope it's not beyond me
    settling down it takes time
    one day we'll live together
    and life will be better
    I have it here yeah in my mind
    baby, you know someday you'll slow
    baby, my heart's been breaking
    I gave a lot to you
    I take a lot from you too
    you slave a lot for me
    guess you could say
    i gave you my edge
    I can't pretend
    I need to defend
    some part of me from you
    I know I've spent some time a-lying
    I can't pretend
    I don't need to defend
    some part of me from you
    I know I've spent some time a-lying
    You're looking alright tonight
    I think we should go
    You're looking alright tonight
    I think we should go

    Guided By Voices - I am a Tree

    I am a tree - I show my age when I don't cry
    I have the leaves that will fall off when wind blows by
    Don't strip off my bark - I have been stripped of it before
    Yesterday's gone and tomorrow has so much more in store

    You are a bird - you're taking off in every way
    Say the last word until there is nothing more to say

    Don't interrupt - you know the squirrels are my friends
    Get off my limb - for I will break before I bend

    I'm planning to see
    I'm planning to feel you all over me
    So climb up my trunk and build on your nest
    Come and get the sap out if me
    I am a tree!
    Fruitless and free!
    No symmetry!
    Touch me and see!

    I am a tree - counting my rings will do no good
    I won't live long but I would be with you if I could
    When you take flight, remember me to one who lives there
    Since you have flown, there's something special in the air
