Lay my head on the surgeon's table
Take me fingerprints if you are able
Pick my brains, pick my pockets
Steal my eyeballs and come back for the sockets
Run every kind of test from A to Z
And you'll still know nothing 'bout me

Sting

Give me back my dreams
I've been counting these sheep
Since I can't remember when

Now I have nothing, so God give me strength
Cause Im weak in her wake
And if Im strong I might still break
And I don't have anything to share
That I wont throw away into the air

That song is sung out
This bell is rung out
she was the light that I'd bless
she took my last chance at happiness
So God give me strength, God give me strength

Now in Vienna there's ten pretty women
There's a shoulder where Death comes to cry
There's a lobby with nine hundred windows
There's a tree where the doves go to die
There's a piece that was torn from the morning
And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take this waltz with the clamp on it's jaws

-L. Cohen

Hey world, what you say
Should I stick around for another day or two?
Don't give up on me, I won't give up on you
Just believe in me, like I believe in you
- Michael Franti & Spearhead / Hey World (Don’t Give up)

If I could be the sun
I'd radiate like Africa and
Smile upon the world
Intergalactic love laughter and
If I were the rains, I'd wash away the whole world's pain and
Bring the gift of cool like ice cream trucks on sunny days and
If I was the earth I'd be like mountains bountiful
And if I were the sky so high, I'd be like wind invincible and
If I could be a seed, I would give birth to redwood trees and
If I were the trees, I'd generate the freshest air to breathe in
- Michael Franti & Spearhed / What I Be

It’s been a long time coming that I had to say
When I wake up in the morning all I do is pray
For some guidance and protection on the streets today
And an answer to the questions I ask everyday
So tell me why do the birds that used to fly here
Tell me why do they come to die here
And all the kids that used to run here
Tell me why do they load their guns here
I remember, in the days when,
We were one heart no need to defend
I just wrap my arms around
Don’t give up this song is for you
- Michael Franti & Spearhead / Hey, Hey, Hey (No Matter How Life Is Today)

don't give up
'cos you have friends
don't give up
you're not beaten yet
don't give up
I know you can make it good
-Peter Gabriel

I can't live if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give any more

I wanna live,
I wanna give.
I've been a miner for a heart of gold.

The silver knives are flashing in the tired old cafe. A ghost climbs on the table in a bridal negligee. She says "My body is the life; my body is the way." I raise my arm against it all and I catch the bride's bouquet.

So he walked through the rain and he walked through the mud
Till he came to a place called The Bucket Of Blood
Stagger Lee
He said "Mr Motherfucker, you know who I am"
The barkeeper said, "No, and I don't give a good goddamn"
To Stagger Lee

-Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

You work your life away and what do they give?
You're only killing yourself to live

Stagger Lee, cried Billy
Oh, please don't take my life
I've three little children
And a very sickly wife

Take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Take, take me home, oh lord
Cos I've been a prisoner all my life
And I can say to you...

and

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

Don't tell me not to fly, I simply got to
If someone takes a spill, it's me and not you
Who told you you're allowed to rain on my parade

Oh... but I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her I love her?
Yes... I would give my heart gladly
But each day when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead not at me

Butterfly in the sky
I can fly twice as high
Take a look
It's in a book
A reading rainbow.
