Leonard Cohen – Tonight will be fine (“…And I know from her eyes…”)



Sometimes I find I get to thinking of the past.
We swore to each other then that our love would surely last.
You kept right on loving, I went on a fast,
now I am too thin and your love is too vast.

But I know from your eyes
and I know from your smile
that tonight will be fine,
will be fine, will be fine, will be fine
for a while.

I choose the rooms that I live in with care,
the windows are small and the walls almost bare,
there’s only one bed and there’s only one prayer;
I listen all night for your step on the stair.

But I know from your eyes
and I know from your smile
that tonight will be fine,
will be fine, will be fine, will be fine
for a while.

Oh sometimes I see her undressing for me,
she’s the soft naked lady love meant her to be
and she’s moving her body so brave and so free.
If I’ve got to remember that’s a fine memory.

And I know from her eyes
and I know from her smile
that tonight will be fine,
will be fine, will be fine, will be fine
for a while.

Leonard Cohen-I tried to leave you


I tried to leave you, I don’t deny
I closed the book on us, at least a hundred times.
I’d wake up every morning by your side. 

The years go by, you lose your pride.
The baby’s crying, so you do not go outside,
and all your work it’s right before your eyes. 

Goodnight, my darling, I hope you’re satisfied,
the bed is kind of narrow, but my arms are open wide.
And here’s a man still working for your smile.

Kris Kristofferson – The Heart (and another TGIF kind of Song!)


My Daddy was a charmer, boys, he had a lot of style
He was shining best at everything he did
They said that he could lighten up a room with just a smile
And I was proud as hell to be his kid

It seemed like just as we were growing close together he was gone
But it was long enough to show what I could be
And I sometimes feel his spirit fill my body like a song
And this is what my Daddy sings to me

Chorus:
If they deal you down and dirty in a way you don’t deserve
You’ll feel better if you take it like a man
If you let ’em drive you crazy, boy, they’ll shut your business down
Shake it off and get your licks in when you can
‘Cause the heart is all that matters in the end

They say every song is sweeter when you sing it from the heart
I won’t knock it ’cause I tried it and it’s true
I may never get to heaven, but I’ve seen a lot of stars
And I’m here to bring the same advice to you.

Chorus:
If they deal you down and dirty in a way you don’t deserve
You’ll feel better if you take it like a man
If you let ’em drive you crazy, boy, they’ll shut your business down
Shake it off and get your licks in when you can
‘Cause the heart is all that matters in the end

Yes, the heart is all that matters in the end
The heart is all that matters in the end

I FORGOT MORE THAN YOU’LL EVER KNOW by JOHNNY CASH


You think you know the smile on her lips
the thrill at the touch of her fingertips
But I forgot more than you’ll ever know about her
You think you’ll find a heaven of bliss
in each caress and each tender kiss
But I forgot more than you’ll ever know about her
You stole her love from me one day
you didn’t care how you’ve hurt me
But you can never steal away
mem’ries of what used to be
You think she’s yours to have and to hold
But someday you’ll learn when her love grows cold
That I forgot more than you’ll ever know about her

You stole her love from me one day
you didn’t care how you’ve hurt me
but you can never steal away
memories of what used to be…

I would like to know that behind every smile there is true happiness and fulfillment.

Billy Joel en Tokyo 2006 SHE’S ALWAYS A WOMAN TO ME


She can kill with a smile
She can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see
She hides like a child,
But she’s always a woman to me

She can lead you to love
She can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth
But she’ll never believe
And she’ll take what you give her, as long as it’s free
Yeah, she steals like a thief
But she’s always a woman to me

CHORUS:
Oh–she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh–and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

And she’ll promise you more
Than the Garden of Eden
Then she’ll carelessly cut you
And laugh while you’re bleedin’
But she’ll bring out the best
And the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself
Cause she’s always a woman to me
–Mhmm–

Bridge

CHORUS:
Oh–she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh–and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

She is frequently kind
And she’s suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases
She’s nobody’s fool
And she can’t be convicted
She’s earned her degree
And the most she will do
Is throw shadows at you
But she’s always a woman to me
–Mhmm–

 

Smile: You’re not in the ‘Waiting Room’



 “Smile: You’re not in the Waiting Room!”

Judy Garland: Smile



Smile though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds, in the sky, you’ll get by
If you smile, through your fear and sorrow
Smile, and there’ll be tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through
If you’ll….
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear, may be ever so near,
That’s the time, you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you’ll just….
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear, may be ever so near,
That’s the time, you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you’ll just….
Smile”

“Smile” is a song based on an instrumental theme used in the soundtrack for the 1936 Charlie Chaplin movie Modern Times. Chaplin composed the music, while John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons added the lyrics and title in 1954.[1] In the lyrics, the singer is telling the listener to cheer up and that there is always a bright tomorrow, just as long as they smile. “Smile” has become a popular standard since its original use in Chaplin’s film. (from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smile_(Charlie_Chaplin_song), Among many others Nat King Cole, And Michael Jackson had their renditions.
