Filed under: Lyrics — queenkv August 8, 2005 @ 2:06 pm

My honey sent me this SF Chron story about Apl from Black Eyed Peas.

He’s composed several rap tunes for his group with Filipino influences. In fact – Bebot – the lyrics are in Tagalog. Cool.

The dude’s from a “poor, working class family in Sapang Bato, a small barrio in Pampanga, north of Manila.” And he goes back whenever he can. Apl due the reporter he get’s his mom to cook shrimp and adobe everytime he goes home.

Eyes On Me

Eyes On Me
peformed by Faye Wong

Final Fantasy VIII

dancing_riona.jpg

I never sang my songs
On the stage, on my own
Whenever sad my words
Wishing they would be heard
I saw you smiling at me

Was it real or just my fantasy
You’d always be there in the corner
Of this tiny little bar

My last night here for you
Same old songs, just once more
My last night here with you?
Maybe yes, maybe no
I kind of liked it your your way

How you shyly placed your eyes on me
Oh, did you ever know?
That I had mine on you

*Darling, so there you are
With that look on your face
As if you’re never hurt
As if you’re never down
Shall I be the one for you

Who pinches you softly but sure
If frown is shown then
I will know that you are no dreamer

So let me come to you
Close as I wanted to be
Close enough for me
To feel your heart beating fast
And stay there as I whisper

How I loved your peaceful eyes on me
Did you ever know
That I had mine on you

Darling, so share with me
Your love if you have enough
Your tears if you’re holding back
Or pain if that’s what it is
How can I let you know

I’m more than the dress and the voice
Just reach me out then
You will know that you’re not dreaming

Galileo
by Indigo Girls

Approaching_Storm.jpg

galileo’s head was on the block
the crime was looking up for truth
and as the bombshells of my daily fears explode
i try to trace them to my youth

and then you had to bring up reincarnation

over a couple of beers the other night
and now i’m serving time for mistakes
made by another in another lifetime

CHORUS:
how long till my soul gets it right
can any human being ever reach that kind of light
i call on the resting soul of galileo
king of night vision, king of insight

and then i think about my fear of motion
which i never could explain
some other fool across the ocean years ago
must have crashed his little airplane

CHORUS

i’m not making a joke, you know me
i take everything so seriously

if we wait for the time till all souls get it right
then at least i know there’ll be no nuclear annihilation
in my lifetime i’m still not right

i offer thanks to those before me
that’s all i’ve got to say
’cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime
now i have to pay
but then again it feels like some sort of inspiration

to let the next life off the hook
but she’ll say “look what i had to overcome from my last life
i think i’ll write a book”

CHORUS

Perfect
by Doria Roberts

Let’s take a picture now
I do not want to forget
The way you look at me when everything is perfect
A perfect memory of when things are so good
And everything has worked out just the way we knew it would

I bought a picture frame
I made room on the wall
I hold you close to my chest
Because I’ve made room in my heart
You ask me what I’m doing
I say displaying our love
I can see you when I’m awake and you’re the one I’m dreaming of

I love the sun when it shines
I love the sky when it’s blue
I love the color green
Because it reminds me of you
I’ve been thinking about you all night
A warm bed and a cozy fire
You put you arms around me and lift my head
And then you kiss me…

Blue Skies

Filed under: Lyrics — queenkv @ 3:54 pm

performed by LeVay Smith and Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers

Blue skies smiling on me
Nothing but blue skies do I see
Blue birds singing a song
Nothing but blue skies from now on.

I never saw the sun shining so bright
When you’re in love everything’s right
Watching all the days hurrying by
When you’re in love my how they fly

Those blue days all of them gone
And nothing but blue sky from now on

Cosmic Girl

Cosmic Girl
by Jamiroquai

accretion.jpg

I must have died and gone to heaven
‘cos it was a quarter past eleven on a saturday in 1999
Right across from where I’m standing
on the dance floor she was landing
it was clear that she was from another town
like some baby Barbarella with the stars as her umbrella

she asked me if I’d like to magnetise
Do I have to go star-trekking
‘cos it’s you I should be checking
so she lazer beamed me with her cosmic eyes

She’s just a cosmic girl from another galaxy
My heart’s at zero gravity
She’s from a cosmic world putting me in ecstasy
transmitting on my frequency

She’s cosmic

I’m scanning all my radars
well she said she’s from a quasar fourty thousand milion light years away
It’s a distant solar system
tried to phone but they don’t list ‘em
so I asked her for a number all the same
She said ‘step in my transorter
so I can teleport ya all around my heavenly body’

This could be a close encounter
I should take care not to flounder
Sends me into hyper space
when I see her pretty face.

She’s just a cosmic girl from another galaxy
My heart’s at zero gravity
She’s from a cosmic world putting me in ecstasy
transmitting on my frequency

She’s cosmic

Sends me into hyperspace when I see her pretty face [x8]

She’s just a cosmic girl from another galaxy
My heart’s at zero gravity
She’s from a cosmic world putting me in ecstasy
transmitting on my frequency
yeah cosmic, oh can’t you be my cosmic woman?
I need you I want you to be my cosmic girl

for the rest of time (Fade)

Only You (And You Alone)

only you
can make this world seem right

and when you hold my hand i understand
the magic that you do

you’re my dream come true
my one and only you

ohhh only you

baby, its so true
you are my destiny
when you hold my hand, i understand
the magic that you do

baby you my dream come true and my one and only youuuu.

American Pie
by Don McLean (Copyright Don McLean and MCA Records)

A long long time ago
I can still remember how that music used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And maybe they’d be happy for a while.
