Watch “Summer of 69 (lyrics)- Bryan Adams” on YouTube


  1. 2 of 5
    I got my first real six-string
    Bought it at the five-and-dime
    Played it ’til my fingers bled
    Was the summer of sixty-nine

    Me and some guys from school
    Had a band and we tried real hard
    Jimmy quit, Jody got married
    I should’ve known we’d never get far

    Oh, when I look back now
    That summer seemed to last forever
    And if I had the choice
    Yeah, I’d always wanna be there
    Those were the best days of my life

    Ain’t no use in complainin’
    When you’ve got a job to do
    Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
    And that’s when I met you, yeah

    Standin’ on your mama’s porch
    You told me that you’d wait forever
    Oh, and when you held my hand
    I knew that it was now or never
    Those were the best days of my life

    Oh, yeah
    Back in the summer of sixty-nine, oh

    Man, we were killin’ time, we were young and restless
    We needed to unwind
    I guess nothin’ can last forever, forever, no

    Yeah

    And now the times are changin’
    Look at everything that’s come and gone
    Sometimes when I play that old six-string
    I think about you, wonder what went wrong

    Standin’ on your mama’s porch
    You told me that it’d last forever
    Oh, and when you held my hand
    I knew that it was now or never
    Those were the best days of my life

    Oh, yeah
    Back in the summer of sixty-nine, oh
    It was the summer of sixty-nine, oh, yeah
    Me and my baby in sixty-nine, oh
    It was the summer, the summer, the summer of sixty-nine, yeah

Watch “Tristan Prettyman – Back To Home” on YouTube


Holding my breath and I’m making a wish
You brace yourself for the moment
When its all gonna flip
We couldn’t stop if we tried, ah I I
Stuck in a space but its all gonna change
So there’s no reason to be scared of turning the page
We couldn’t stall if you tried, ah I I
Sundown.
Sunrise.

We won’t be lost in the dark
Between our head and our heart
All of these roads lead us back
Back to home

La la la la‘s
La la la la‘s
La la la la‘s
La la la la‘s

Get what you give, and ya give what you get
The hardest part is letting go
So just do your best
There’s no need to wonder why
Out of your head and into your heart
Strick a match and watch it burn
Make a new start
We are the architects of light

We won’t be lost in the dark
Between our head and our hearts
All of these roads lead us back
Back to home

These aren’t the walls that hold us in
Sometimes its just easier to forgive
All of these roads, lead us back, back to home

La la la la‘s
La la la la‘s
La la la la‘s
La la la la‘s

We won’t be lost in the dark
Between our head and our hearts
All of these roads lead us back
Back to home

These aren’t the walls that hold us in
Sometimes its just easier to forgive
All of these roads, lead us back, back to home
All of these roads, lead us back, back to home

Watch “Christina Perri- Jar of Hearts Lyrics” on YouTube


I know I can’t take one more step towards you
‘Cause all that’s waiting is regret
Don’t you know I’m not your ghost anymore
You lost the love I loved the most

I learned to live, half alive
And now you want me one more time
Who do you think you are?
Runnin’ ’round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don’t come back for me
Who do you think you are?
I hear you’re asking all around
If I am anywhere to be found
But I have grown too strong
To ever fall back in your arms
I’ve learned to live, half alive
And now you want me one more time
Who do you think you are?
Runnin’ ’round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don’t come back for me
Who do you think you are?
It took so long just to feel alright
Remember how to put back the light in my eyes
I wish I had missed the first time that we kissed
‘Cause you broke all your promises
And now you’re back
You don’t get to get me back
Who do you think you are?
Runnin’ ’round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
Don’t come back for me
Don’t come back at all
Who do you think you are?
Runnin’ ’round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
Tearing love apart
You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
Don’t come back for me
Don’t come back at all
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?

Your fingertips across my skin
The palm trees swaying in the wind
Images

You sang me Spanish lullabies
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
Clever trick
Well, I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you’d want the same for me
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Can’t you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do
We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me
Images
And when you left, you kissed my lips
You told me you would never, never forget
These images
Well, I’d never want to see you unhappy
I thought you’d want the same for me
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Can’t you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do
I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
Without you on my mind
So you’re gone and I’m haunted
And I bet you are just fine
Did I make it that easy to walk right in and out
Of my life?
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Can’t you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

  1. 2 of 5
    Hey, where did we go?
    Days when the rains came
    Down in the hollow
    Playin’ a new game
    Laughing and a running hey, hey
    Skipping and a jumping
    In the misty morning fog with
    Our hearts a thumpin’ and you
    My brown-eyed girl
    You, my brown-eyed girl

    Whatever happened
    To Tuesday and so slow?
    Going down the old mine
    With a transistor radio
    Standing in the sunlight laughing
    Hiding behind a rainbow’s wall
    Slipping and sliding
    All along the waterfall, with you
    My brown-eyed girl
    You, my brown-eyed girl

    Do you remember when we used to sing
    Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da
    Just like that
    Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da, la te da

    So hard to find my way
    Now that I’m all on my own
    I saw you just the other day
    My, how you have grown
    Cast my memory back there, Lord
    Sometimes I’m overcome thinking ’bout
    Making love in the green grass
    Behind the stadium with you
    My brown-eyed girl
    You, my brown-eyed girl

    Do you remember when we used to sing
    Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da
    Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da, la te da
    (Bit by bit, by bit, by bit, by bit, by bit)
    (Sha la la la la la la, la te da, la te da
    Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da, la te da
    (La te da, da da da da da da da da)

Watch “Leonard Cohen – Sisters Of Mercy Lyrics” on YouTube


Oh the sisters of mercy, they are not departed or gone.
They were waiting for me when I thought that I just can’t go on.
And they brought me their comfort and later they brought me this song.
Oh I hope you run into them, you who’ve been travelling so long.

Yes you who must leave everything that you cannot control.
It begins with your family, but soon it comes around to your soul.
Well I’ve been where you’re hanging, I think I can see how you’re pinned:
When you’re not feeling holy, your loneliness says that you’ve sinned.
Well they lay down beside me, I made my confession to them.
They touched both my eyes and I touched the dew on their hem.
If your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condemn
They will bind you with love that is graceful and green as a stem.
When I left they were sleeping, I hope you run into them soon.
Don’t turn on the lights, you can read their address by the moon.
And you won’t make me jealous if I hear that they sweetened your night:
We weren’t lovers like that and besides it would still be all right,
We weren’t lovers like that and besides it would still be all right.

This is how it works
It feels a little worse
Than when we drove our hearse
Right through that screaming crowd
While laughing up a storm
Until we were just bone
Until it got so warm
That none of us could sleep
And all the Styrofoam
Began to melt away
We tried to find some worms
To aid in the decay
But none of them were home
Inside their catacomb
A million ancient bees
Began to sting our knees
While we were on our knees
Praying that disease
Would leave the ones we love
And never come again

On the radio
We heard November Rain
That solo’s really long
But it’s a pretty song
We listened to it twice
‘Cause the DJ was asleep
This is how it works
You’re young until you’re not
You love until you don’t
You try until you can’t
You laugh until you cry
You cry until you laugh
And everyone must breathe
Until their dying breath
No, this is how it works
You peer inside yourself
You take the things you like
And try to love the things you took
And then you take that love you made
And stick it into some
Someone else’s heart
Pumping someone else’s blood
And walking arm in arm
You hope it don’t get harmed
But even if it does
You’ll just do it all again
And on the radio
You hear November Rain
That solo’s awful long
But it’s a good refrain
You listen to it twice
‘Cause the DJ is asleep
On the radio
(Oh, oh, oh)
On the radio
On the radio, uh oh
On the radio, uh oh
On the radio, uh oh
On the radio

If I kiss you where it’s sore
If I kiss you where it’s sore
Will you feel better, better, better?
Will you feel anything at all?
Will you feel better, better, better?
Will you feel anything at all?

Born like sisters to this world
In a town where blood ties are only blood
If you never say your name out loud to anyone
They can never ever call you by it
If I kiss you where it’s sore
If I kiss you where it’s sore
Will you feel better, better, better?
Will you feel anything at all?
Will you feel better, better, better?
Will you feel anything at all?
You’re getting sadder, getting sadder, getting sadder, getting sadder
And I don’t understand, and I don’t understand
But if I kiss you where it’s sore
If I kiss you where it’s sore
Will you feel better, better, better?
Will you feel anything at all?
Will you feel better, better, better?
Will you feel anything at all
Will you feel anything at all
Anything at all?
Will you feel anything at all
Anything at all?
Will you feel anything at all
Anything at all?
Will you feel anything at all
Anything at all?
Will you feel anything at all
