Queen – Too Much Love Will Kill You

For me this is by far the best song by QUEEN..Brian May wrote this song..Many say that he wrote this for Anita Dobson.. The words of this song can be interpreted in many ways .. Most of you should relate to this.. Rest In Peace Freddie \m/

 

 

I’m just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I’m far away from home
And I’ve been facing this alone for much too long
For much too long

I feel like no one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I’ve been looking back to find where I went wrong

Too much love will kill you
If you can’t make up your mind
Torn between the lover and the love you leave behind
You’re headed for disaster ‘cos you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you – everytime

I’m just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems like there’s no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down

How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can’t you see that it’s impossible to choose
No there’s no making sense of it
Every way I go I have to lose

Too much love will kill you
Just as sure as none at all
It’ll drain the power that’s in you
Make you plead and scream and crawl

And the pain will make you crazy
You’re the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you – everytime

Yeah, too much love will kill you
It’ll make your life a lie
Yes, too much love will kill you
And you won’t understand why

You’d give your life you’d sell your soul
But here it comes again
Too much love will kill you
In the end…..In the end

Sting – Fragile

Another classic track from STING.. He so rightly says that we don get anything from violence & revenge..  And the things that we take for granted.. We forget how fragile we are.. Live simple.. Be happy…

 

 

If blood will flow
when flesh and steel are one
Drying in the color
of the evening sun
Tomorrow’s rain
will wash the stains away
But something in our minds
will always stay

Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime’s argument
That nothing comes from violence
and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star
like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are
How fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star
like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are
How fragile we are

Phil Collins – Against All Odds

This is one of those songs which i would love to listen to live..But i know the chances are very dim.. I love the way Phil Collins makes music.. His recording style is different..His lyrics will make you think about your decisions in life.. Against All Odds is a beautiful love song which i first heard in 1996 and till date its fresh in my mind…Yes i do relate to some parts of the song..But then who doesn’t.. This is the Wembley Live Aid video ..And i wished i could be one of those in the crowd.. What a moment.. What a talent.. PHIL COLLINS

How can I just let you walk away, just let you leave without a trace
When I stand here taking every breath with you, ooh
You’re the only one who really knew me at all

How can you just walk away from me,
when all I can do is watch you leave
Cos we’ve shared the laughter and the pain and even shared the tears
You’re the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, oh there’s just an empty space
And there’s nothing left here to remind me,
just the memory of your face
Ooh take a look at me now, well there’s just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against all odds and that’s what I’ve got to face

I wish I could just make you turn around,
turn around and see me cry
There’s so much I need to say to you,
so many reasons why
You’re the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, well there’s just an empty space
And there’s nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face
Now take a look at me now, cos there’s just an empty space

But to wait for you, is all I can do and that’s what I’ve got to face
Take a good look at me now, cos I’ll still be standing here
And you coming back to me is against all odds
It’s the chance I’ve gotta take

Take a look at me now

Adele – Someone Like You

Almost everyone has gone through a phase in their lives when they have lost in love but they have moved on later.. This song is about how true your love is ..Adele has a gifted voice which has the power to move even a stone hearted person..I have been a huge fan of Adele after i heard her first album ’19’ 2 years back.. “Someone like you” is from her second album ’21’ and is probably the best song of the album for me. Adele’s power packed live performances are a treat to watch..She needs only a piano to accompany her..No laser lights. grand entrances , etc.

 

 

This one is from the Brit Awards..

 

I heard that your settled down.
That you found a girl and your married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
It ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the lie.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I hoped you’d see my face & that you’d be reminded,
That for me, it isn’t over.

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remember you said:-
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah.

You’d know how the time flies.
Only yesterday was the time of our lives.
We were born and raised in a summery haze.
Bound by the surprise of our glory days.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I hoped you’d see my face & that you’d be reminded,
That for me, it isn’t over yet.

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remember you said:-
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”, yay.

Nothing compares, no worries or cares.
Regret’s and mistakes they’re memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remembered you said:-
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remembered you said:-
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah.

Coldplay – Talk

Chris Martin talks about his confusion in life..

Someone that he wants to talk to but never did..

Lets TALK!

 

Oh brother I can’t, I can’t get through
I’ve been trying hard to reach you, cause I don’t know what to do
Oh brother I can’t believe it’s true
I’m so scared about the future and I wanna talk to you
Oh I wanna talk to you
You can take a picture of something you see
In the future where will I be?
You can climb a ladder up to the sun
Or write a song nobody has sung
Or do something that’s never been done

Are you lost or incomplete?
Do you feel like a puzzle, you can’t find your missing piece?
Tell me how do you feel?
Well I feel like they’re talking in a language I don’t speak
And they’re talking it to me

So you take a picture of something you see
In the future where will I be?
You can climb a ladder up to the sun
Or a write a song nobody has sung
Or do something that’s never been done
Do something that’s never been done

So you don’t know were you’re going, and you wanna talk
And you feel like you’re going where you’ve been before
You tell anyone who’ll listen but you feel ignored
Nothing’s really making any sense at all
Let’s talk, let’s ta-a-alk
Let’s talk, let’s ta-a-alk

Dream Theatre – Take Your Fingers From My Hair

This is a cover of the original song from Zebra.. Dream Theatre specially made this for their 10th Studio album Black Clouds & Silver Lining..

I just love Mike Portnoy’s drumming in this track..

I need not say anything about the lyrics..

Much respect to the original writers, Zebra..

 

 

Take your fingers from my hair
They have gotten us nowhere
We can’t last another second
For we are two, too lost for open doors
Take your memories and your ways
Let me see a brighter day
Greener fields aren’t hard to hope for
It’s just hard to go on living here without you

Chorus:
Somewhere I have dreamed
That you haven’t got the time to be with me
Somewhere though it seems
That you have been making lovin’ without me

Starshine, moonshine
you’re the light that shines upon me baby
I know, you’ll go
find yourself another lover lady

Let me tell you how I feel
Loving others isn’t real
You are blind
Too blind to notice
That their love is not the love we share together

Chorus:
Somewhere I have dreamed
That you haven’t got the time to be with me
Somewhere though it seems
That you have been making lovin’ without me

Starshine, moonshine
your the light that shines upon me baby
I know, you’ll go
find yourself another lover lady

Starshine, moonshine
you’re the light that shine upon me baby
I know, you’ll go
find yourself another lover lady

 

Radiohead – High & Dry

Thom Yorke talks about Addiction and Insanity in this song..It also refers to some suicidal thoughts..Radiohead always creates an Emotional Illusion with their tracks.. Loved this one too.. Cheers

 

 

Two jumps in a week
I bet you think that’s pretty clever, don’t you boy?
Flying on your motorcycle
Watching all the ground beneath you drop
You’d kill yourself for recognition
Kill yourself to never ever stop
You broke another mirror
You’re turning into something you are not

Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry

Drying up in conversation
You will be the one who cannot talk
All your insides fall to pieces
You just sit there wishing you could still make love
They’re the ones who’ll hate you
When you think you’ve got the world all sussed out
They’re the ones who’ll spit at you
You will be the one screaming out

Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry

Oh, it’s the best thing that you ever had
Best thing that you ever ever had
It’s the best thing that you ever had
Best thing you ever had has gone away

Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high

Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry
