These aren't exactly stuck in my head, nor do they strike a particular chord or remind me of someone specific, they just seem to speak to me a bit today...

Is there nothing I can say 
Nothing I can do 
To change your mind 
I'm so in love with you 
You're too deep in 
You can't get out 
You're just a poor girl in a rich man's house 
Yeah, baby, I'm crying over you 

Don't you know promises were never made to keep? 
Just like the night, dissolve in sleep 
I'll be your savior, steadfast and true 
I'll come to your emotional rescue 
I'll come to your emotional rescue 

Yeah, the other night, crying 
Crying baby, yeah I'm crying 
Yeah I'm like a child baby 
I'm like a child baby 
Child yeah, I'm like a child, like a child 
Like a child 

You think you're one of a special breed 
You think that you're his pet Pekinese 
I'll be your savior, steadfast and true 
I'll come to your emotional rescue 
I'll come to your emotional rescue 

I was dreaming last night 
Last night I was dreaming 
How you'd be mine, but I was crying 
Like a child, yeah, I was crying 
Crying like a child 
You will be mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, all mine 
You could be mine, could be mine 
Be mine, all mine 

I come to you, so silent in the night 
So stealthy, so animal quiet 
I'll be your savior, steadfast and true 
I'll come to your emotional rescue 
I'll come to your emotional rescue 

Yeah, you should be mine, mine, whew 
Yes, you could be mine 
Tonight and every night 
I will be your knight in shining armour 
Coming to your emotional rescue 
You will be mine, you will be mine, all mine 
You will be mine, you will be mine, all mine 
I will be your knight in shining armour 
Riding across the desert on a fine Arab charger

Never had nothing
No one to care
That's why I seem to have
More than my share
I've got a man crazy for me
He's funny that way

When I hurt his feelings
Once in a while
His only answer is one little smile
I've got that man crazy for me
He's funny that way

I can see no other way
And no better plan
End it all and let him go
To some better gal
But I'm only human
A coward at best
I'm more than certain
He'd follow me West

Though he loves to work
And slave for me everyday
He'd be so much better off
If I went away
But why should I leave him
Why should I go
He'd be unhappy without me I know
I've got that man crazy for me
He's funny that way

So you think the girl is crazy
To eat up your lies like it's good
(Your lies like apple pie)
(She don't even cry)
She is not a fool
She's just tryin' to do what her heart says to
To love you
And as you take to the wind
(to the wind again she breaks down)
And as she breaks down within (within, within)

She waits for you patiently
Hopin' that someday you'll see
 all she really wants to be
Is yours and your
s alone, eternally

What do you want the girl to do
< Don't you know> you're breakin' the child in two
What do you want the girl to do
All she really wants is you
She knows what you are
Still she'll be your queen if you let
her
(Just say the word today)
Now and then you'll promise
All the way-out things you're goin' to get her
(You will see, you will see)
(You're so damn glad you found her, found her, years ago)
'Cause maybe she knows better
As she watched you come and go (all you'll show)
And as she watched your promises erode
What do you want the girl to do
Don't you know you're breakin' the child in two
What do you want the girl
to do
Can't you see you're breakin' the child in two

Somewhere theres music
How faint the tune
Somewhere theres heaven
How high the moon
There is no moon above
When love is far away too
Till it comes true
That you love me as I love you

Somewhere theres music
How near, how far
Somewhere theres heaven
Its where you are
The darkest night would shine
If you would come to me soon
Until you will, how still my heart
How high the moon

Somewhere theres music
How faint the tune
Somewhere theres heaven
How high the moon
The darkest night would shine
If you would come to me soon
Until you will, how still my heart
How high the moon

Happens all the time
Its going to happen - happen - till your change your mind
Its going to happen - happen - happens all the time
Its going to happen - happen - till your change your mind

Best story I ever heard
The truth about fat Mr X and the young girl
See how far he'll let you go
Before he persuades you when you're walking home

Happens all the time ...

Watching your friends passing by
Going to sleep without blinking a blue eye
Too slow to notice what's wrong
Two faced to you when you're taking them on

Happens all the time ...

Everything goes when you're dead
Everything empties from what was in your head
No point in waiting today
Stupid revenge is what's making you stay

Its going to happen - happen - till your change your mind

You've been so kind and generous
I don't know how you keep on giving
For your kindness I'm in debt to you
For your selflessness, my admiration
And for everything you've done

You know I'm bound...
I'm bound to thank you for it

You've been so kind and generous
I don't know how you keep on giving
For your kindness I'm in debt to you
And I never could have come this far without you
So for everything you've done

You know I'm bound...
I'm bound to thank you for it

I want to thank you
For so many gifts
You gave with love and tenderness
I want to thank you

I want to thank you
For your generosity
The love and the honesty
That you gave me

I want to thank you
Show my gratitude
My love and my respect for you
I want to thank you

I want to...

Thank you

Sittin' in the wood alone,
On silver tree that turned to stone -
Branches growin' overhead;
Make your house and feather bed.
Shiny beak and shiny eyes,
Join the winter paradise.
Singin' to the settin' sun;
Prayin' for the day that's done;
Growin' qui'ter as you watch the snow: fallin' down - down -
Down - down...
If you want to know his heart,
Listen...
Listen to the bluebird sing...
If I had a voice like thine -
Melody like summer wine -
From sunshine islands, I would bring
Music to the newborn king.
Growin' qui'ter as you watch the snow: fallin' down - down -
Down - down...
If you want to know his heart,
Listen...
Listen to the bluebird sing...

Growin' qui'ter as you watch the snow: fallin' down - down -
Down - down...
If you want to know his heart,
Listen...
Listen to the bluebird sing...

so i'll wait for you
where i always wait
behind the signs that sell the news
i'll watch for you like yesterday
and hope for you
one day that once
spent out on me
and up 'til late
i search for you
your hat pushed straight
away from me
your measured step
heads up you win
always too late

oh if i could just once catch your eye
invisible against the words
that hold you down in solitude
and never let you go
the way that every time
my eyes just close
like lids of wooden men in file
i put you under rainy day
your hat's all off
and i'm gone away...

so i'll wait for you
where i always wait
behind the signs that sell the news
and i'll watch for you like yesterday
and hope for you
one day that once
spent out on me
and up 'til late
i search for you
your hat pushed straight
away from me
your measured step
heads up you win
always too late

But of course you know I love you
Or what else am I here for
Only you not face to face
But side by side for evermore
And I need to be here with you
For without you what am i
Just another fool out searching
For some heaven in the sky
Take me closer to believing
Take me forward lead me on
Through collision and confusion
While theres life beneath the sun
You are the reason I continue
So near for so long
So close yet so far away

Got a feelin' that I'm wastin' time on you babe
Got a feelin' that you've been untrue
I got a feelin' that you're stealin'
All the love I thought I was givin' to you
Baby it's true

Got a feelin' that you're playin' some game with me babe
Got a feelin' that you just can't see
If you're entertainin' any thought that you're gainin'
By causin' me all of this pain and makin' me blue
The joke's on you

When I get to feelin' that you're stealin' love
And I don't know why
It makes me so discouraged
I finally get the courage not to cry babe
Or even try babe

Got a feelin' that I'm wastin' time on you babe
Got a feelin' that you've been untrue
I got a feelin' that you're stealin'
All the love I thought I was givin' to you
Baby it's true, the joke's on you
Baby it's true, the joke's on you

Seven trees
Bearin strange fruit
Blood on the leaves
And blood at the roots
Black bodies
Swinging in the southern breeze
Strange fruit hangin
From the poplar trees
Pastoral scene
Of the gallant south
Them big bulging eyes
And the twisted mouth
Scent of magnolia
Clean and fresh
Then the sudden smell
Of burnin flesh
Here is a fruit
For the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather
For the wind to suck
For the sun to rot
For the leaves to drop
Here is
Strange and bitter crop

Southern trees bear strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

Pastoral scene of the gallant south,
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh,
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh.

Here is fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter cry.
