Primitive Radio Gods - Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand

I've been downhearted baby,
I've been down--I've been downhearted baby,
Ever since the day we met
Ever since the day we met (x2)

Jan lays down and wrestles in her sleep
Moonlight spills on comic books
And superstars in magazines
An old friend calls and tells us where to meet
Her plane takes off from Baltimore
And touches down on Bourbon Street

We sit outside and argue all night long
About a god we've never seen
But never fails to side with me
Sunday comes and all the papers say
Ma Teresa's joined the mob
And happy with her full time job

Do do do do doo do...Do do do do doo do... (x4)

I've been downhearted baby,
I've been down--I've been downhearted baby,
Ever since the day we met
Ever since the day we met (x2)

Am I alive or thoughts that drift away?
Does summer come for everyone?
Can humans do as prophets say?
And if I die before I learn to speak
Can money pay for all the days I lived awake
But half asleep?

Do do do do doo do...Do do do do doo do... (x2)

A life is time, they teach you growing up
The seconds ticking killed us all
A million years before the fall
You ride the waves and don't ask where they go
You swim like lions through the crest
And bathe yourself on zebra flesh

Do do do do doo do...Do do do do doo do... )x4)

I've been downhearted baby,
I've been downhearted baby,
Ever since the day we met
Ever since the day we met

I've been downhearted baby,
I've been down--I've been downhearted baby,
Ever since the day we met
Ever since the day we met (x8)

Pearl Jam - Even Flow.

Even Flow.

Freezin', rests his head on a pillow made of concrete, again
Oh, feelin' maybe he'll see a little better, set a days, ooh yeah
Oh, hand out, faces that he sees time again ain't that familiar,
oh yeah
Oh, dark grin, he can't help, when he's happy looks insane, oh yeah

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don't know, so he chases them away
Someday yet, he'll begin his life again
Life again, life again...

Kneelin', looking through the paper though he doesn't know to read, ooh yeah
Oh, prayin', now to something that has never showed him anything
Oh, feelin', understands the weather of the winters on its way
Oh, ceilings, few and far between all the legal halls of shame, yeah

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don't know, so he chases them away
Someday yet, he'll begin his life again
Whispering hands, gently lead him away
Him away, him away...
Yeah!
Woo...ah yeah...fuck it up...

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don't know, so he chases them away
Someday yet, he'll begin his life again, yeah
Oh, whispering hands, gently lead him away
Him away, him away...
Yeah!
Woo...uh huh...yeah, yeah, fuck em up again...

U2 - Stuck In A Moment ...

Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of.

I'm not afraid of anything in this world,
There's nothing you can throw at me that I haven't already heard.
I'm just trying to find a decent melody,
A song that I can sing in my own company.

I never thought you were a fool,
But darling, look at you.
You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight,
These tears are going nowhere, baby.

You've got to get yourself together,
You've got stuck in a moment and now you can't get out of it.
Don't say that later will be better now you're stuck in a moment,
And you can't get out of it.

I will not forsake, the colours that you bring,
But the nights you filled with fireworks,
They left you with nothing.
I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me,
I still listen through your ears, and through your eyes I can see.

And you are such a fool,
To worry like you do.
I know it's tough, and you can never get enough,
Of what you don't really need now... my oh my.

You've got to get yourself together,
You've got stuck in a moment and now you can't get out of it.
Oh love look at you now,
You've got yourself stuck in a moment and now you can't get out of it.

I was unconscious, half asleep,
The water is warm till you discover how deep...
I wasn't jumping... for me it was a fall,
It's a long way down to nothing at all.

You've got to get yourself together,
You've got stuck in a moment and now you can't get out of it.
Don't say that later will be better now,
You're stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it.

And if the night runs over,
And if the day won't last,
And if our way should falter,
Along the stony pass.

And if the night runs over,
And if the day won't last,
And if your way should falter,
Along the stony pass.
It's just a moment,
This time will pass.

(c) U2.
