Thanks, Hot Stuff.

"Ace of Spades" by Motorhead


If you like to gamble, I tell you I'm your man
you win some, lose some, it's all the same to me
The pleasure is to play, it makes no difference what you say
I don't share your greed, the only card I need is
the Ace of Spades
the Ace of Spades
Playin' for the high one, dancin' with the devil
going with the flow, it's all a game to me
7 or 11, snake eyes watching you
Double up or quit, double stake or split
the Ace of Spades
the Ace of Spades
You know I'm born to lose
and gamblin's made for fools
But that's the way I like it baby
I don't want to live forever
and don't forget the joker
Pushing up the ante, I know you got to see me
read 'em and weep, the dead man's hand again
I see it in your eyes, take one look and die
The only thing you see, you know it's gonna be
the Ace of Spades
the Ace of Spades

"I'm So Bad (Baby I Don't Care)" by Motorhead



I make love to mountain lions,
Sleep on red-hot branding irons,
When I walk the roadway shakes,
Bed's a mess of rattlesnakes,
Voodoo child, black cat bone,
Scratch your back, hear you moan,
Get me up, you go down, tall building, single bound,
War and peace, peace and love, say it if you dare,
Iron fist, velvet glove,
I'm so bad, baby I don't care,
Black-hearted to the bone,
Older than The Rolling Stones,
Been to heaven, been to hell,
Bought the farm, and I won't sell,
Give and take, rise and fall, rise up and take it all,
Secret love, I won't tell, knock you up and ring your bell,
Kiss the whip, eat the gun,
Tell me it ain't fair, midnight victim, hit and run,
I'm so bad, baby I don't care,
I make the blind to see,
Shoot 'em full of R and B,
I make the lame to walk,
Come 'round and pop your cork,
Wham, bam, thank you ma'am,
I thought I heard the back door slam,
Overkill, walk the line, kill the lights, it's lampshade time,
On the road, on the lam, people running scared,
I'm everything they say I am, I'm so bad, baby I don't care.

I remember you.
I remember lying awake at night
And thinking just of you..
But things don't last forever
And somehow baby
They never really do.

I'm searching for those party lights
Where everybody's having a good time
My baby said she'd hold me tight
And you know that this could be the right time

And I don't care what else
In the middle of your tenderness
I'm just a mess
Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah

It was a September night
The air was turning warm to cold
My baby said she'd hold me tight
The autumn brought the springtime home

And I don't care what else
In the middle of your tenderness
I'm just a mess
Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah

I like the way
You looked that day
When our love it was new
And if I saw you again
Somehow I'd just have to say
Sometimes you're just too plain to see
Then again, you're just like me
You had to say something
You waited so long
Here I am
I could be wrong

Stay with me baby, oh yeah
Stay with 'til morning comes
Stay with me baby, oh yeah
Stay with 'til the morning comes

I don't care what else
In the middle of your tenderness
I just confess
I guess you messed me up again
I just confess
I'm just a--whoa whoa whoa, yeah, yeah yeah
I'm just a mess

"Picture"
(feat. Sheryl Crow)

[Kid Rock]
Livin' my life in a slow hell
Different girl every night at the hotel
I ain't seen the sun shine in 3 damn days
Been fuelin' up on cocaine and whisky
Wish I had a good girl to miss me
Lord I wonder if I'll ever change my ways
I put your picture away
Sat down and cried today
I can't look at you while I'm lyin' next to her
I put your picture away, sat down and cried today
I can't look at you, while I'm lyin next to her

[Sherly Crow]
I called you last night in the hotel
Everyone knows but they wont tell
But their half hearted smiles tell me
Somethin' just ain't right
I been waitin' on you for a long time
Fuelin' up on heartaches and cheap wine
I ain't heard from you in 3 damn nights
I put your picture away
I wonder where you been
I can't look at you while I'm lyin' next to him
I put your picture away
I wonder where you been
I can't look at you while I'm lyin' next to him
I saw ya yesterday with an old friend

[Kid Rock]
It was the same ole same "how have you been"

[Both]
Since you been gone my worlds been dark & grey

[Kid Rock]
You reminded me of brighter days

[Sheryl Crow]
I hoped you were comin' home to stay
I was headed to church

[Kid Rock]
I was off to drink you away

[Both]
I thought about you for a long time
Can't seem to get you off my mind
I can't understand why we're living life this way
I found your picture today
I swear I'll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home
I found your picture today
I swear I'll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home
I just called to say, I love you come back home

The first time I heard this song was the first time I took acid.  It's been special to me ever since......
  :cool:



 
Now the party´s over
I´m so tired
Then I see you coming
Out of nowhere
Much communication in a motion
Without conversation or a notion
Avalon
When the samba takes you
Out of nowhere
And the background?s fading
Out of focus
Yes the picture changing
Every moment
And your destination
You don´t know it
Avalon
When you bossa nova
There´s no holding
Would you have me dancing
Out of nowhere
Avalon

You know it takes a long, long time
You know it takes a long, long time
You love her so and still you know
That you will never want to let her go
Unless you leave her first
Then you come out on top
But, still there's just one thing
You haven't got.

Peace of mind
Like when you treated her kind
It's hard to face that open space.

You know it takes a long, long time
You know it takes a long, long time
When first you gave and shared your soul
Showed her all those things that take their toll
She knows your weak spot
But, she still gets you hot
So you do it again
Reveal what lies within.

And go for peace of mind
Like when you treated her kind
It's hard to face that open space.

You're lookin' for peace of mind
Anywhere you can find
Still searchin' for peace of mind.

You know it takes a long, long time
You know it takes a long, long time.

Nights In White Satin - Moody Blues

Nights in white satin,
Never reaching the end,
Letters I've written,
Never meaning to send.

Beauty I'd always missed
With these eyes before,
Just what the truth is
I can't say anymore.

'Cause I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.

Gazing at people,
Some hand in hand,
Just what I'm going thru
They can understand.

Some try to tell me
Thoughts they cannot defend,
Just what you want to be
You will be in the end,

And I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.
Oh, how, I love you.

Nights in white satin,
Never reaching the end,
Letters I've written,
Never meaning to send.

Beauty I'd always missed
With these eyes before,
Just what the truth is
I can't say anymore.

'Cause I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.
Oh, how, I love you.

'Cause I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.
Oh, how, I love you

Candy told me nothing really matters anymore
And when I ask her what she means she says I ought to know
Candy said she's made arrangements for me in the sand
And Candy said she wants me with her down in Candyland

Candy says she wonders why we try
I couldn't think of what to say
I had no ready reply
But Candy says I'd like it where she is
She says it's an opportunity that I don't want to miss
Candy said she's made arrangements for me in the sand
And Candy said she wants me with her down in Candyland
Candy said she wants me with her down in Candyland

Candy asked me if she died if I could go on
Of course I said I couldn't and of course we knew that's wrong
But Candy I said Candy no you can't do that to me
Because you love me way to much for you to ever leave
Candy said she's made arrangements for me in the sand
And Candy said she wants me with her down in Candyland
Candy said she's made arrangements for me in the sand
And Candy said she wants me with her down in Candyland
Candy said she wants me with her down in Candyland (x3)

I hear a voice from the back of the room
I hear a voice cry out
We want something good

Well come on a little closer let me see your face
Yeah come on a little closer by the front of the stage
I said come on a little closer I got something to say
Yeah come on a little closer wanna see your face

You see I met a devil named buena buena
And since I met the devil I ain't been the same, oh no
And I feel alright now I have to tell you
I think it's time for me to finally introduce you to the
Buena buena buena buena good good girl

It's comin' to me
Yeah it's comin' to me
Now I think I know
What it is you need
I know some people wanna make a change
But I know how to make it go away

You see I met a devil named buena buena
And since I met the devil I ain't been the same, oh no
And I feel alright I have to tell you
I think it's time for me to finally introduce you to the
Buena buena buena buena good good girl

Honey white honey white honey white
Made a deal for some angel food
Honey white honey white
Everybody told her it was sweet and good yea
Oh honey (x4)
She said you'll see me later yea you'll see me later
Will you see me later seemed all too soon
And then he smiles he knows honey's coming back
Honey's going to want some more angel food
Devil made of honey (x4)
She said you'll get me when I'm old and wizened
And not a day before that
The devil said honey it won't be that long
Besides I like to see a little more fat
Yea I like to see a little more fat
You know I like to see a little more fat
Honey white honey white honey white honey white
Uh tell me how is your angel food
Honey white oh honey white
She says it's sweet and good
Honey white honey white uh honey white
The sweetness starts to fade
Honey white honey white
Thought you could get away
Poor honey (x4)

Can you be the one
To help me understand myself
The one and only one
Is it you and no one else

Can you shoot the veins
That others only dream about
Can you light the fire
When all my flames are dying out

Can you be the one
Can you be the one

Tell me about my life
Tell me about my world
Tell me about your life
Tell me about your world

__________ the crowd
Aim above and out beyond
Leave the common ground
You never wanted to belong

The sky is open wide
Light the fuse and take a ride
Leave it all behind
Dig in deep and push aside

You know you're the one
You know you're the one

Tell me about my life
Tell me about my world
Tell me about your life
Tell me about your world

Shoot them down
They want to drag you down
Got to see
They're your enemies

Listen, you can't even see
What this world has done to me
Done to me
Done to me

Can you be the one
To help me understand myself
The one and only one
Is it you and no one else

Can you shoot the veins
That others only dream about
Can you light the fire
When all my flames are dying out

Can you be the one
Can you be the one

Tell me about my life
Tell me about my world
Tell me about your life
Tell me about your world

I shot the sheriff
But I did not shoot the deputy
I shot the sheriff
But I did not shoot the deputy

All around in my home town
They're trying to track me down
They say they want to bring me in guilty
For the killing of a deputy
For the life of a deputy

But I say, I shot the sheriff
But I swear it was in self-defense
I shot the sheriff
And they say it is a capital offense

Sheriff John Brown always hated me
For what I don't know
Every time that I plant a seed
He said, Kill it before it grows
He said, Kill it before it grows
I say:

I shot the sheriff
But I swear it was in self-defense
I shot the sheriff
But I swear it was in self-defense

Freedom came my way one day
And I started out of town.
All of a sudden I see sheriff John Brown
Aiming to shoot me down.
So I shot, I shot him down

I say, I shot the sheriff
But I did not shoot the deputy
I shot the sheriff
But I did not shoot the deputy

Reflexes got the better of me
And what is to be must be
Every day the bucket goes to the well
But one day the bottom will drop out
Yes, one day the bottom will drop out

But I say, I shot the sheriff
But I did not shoot the deputy, oh no
I shot the sheriff
But I did not shoot the deputy, oh no

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
-- Aristotle
