My choice for today is:

Free Bird

Lynyrd Skynyrd

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
I must be traveling on, now
Cause there’s too many places I’ve got to see
But, if I stayed here with you, girl
Things just couldn’t be the same
Cause I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird you can not change
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
And this bird you can not change
And this bird you can not change
Lord knows, I can’t change

Bye, bye, baby, it’s been a sweet love
Though this feeling I can’t change
But please don’t take it so badly
Cause Lord knows I’m to blame
But, if I stayed here with you, now
Things just couldn’t be the same
Cause I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird you’ll never change
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
And this bird you can not change
And this bird you can not change
Lord knows, I can’t change
Lord help me, I can’t change
Lord, I can’t change
Won’t you fly high, free bird, yeah

My choice for today is:

River Of Tears

Eric Clapton

It’s three miles to the river
That would carry me away
Two miles to the dusty street
That I saw you on today

It’s four miles to my lonely room
Where I will hide my face
And about half a mile to the downtown bar
That I ran from in disgrace

Lord how long have I got to keep on running
Seven hours seven days or seven years?
All I know is since you’ve been gone
I feel like I’m drowning in a river
Drowning in a river of tears
I’m drowning in a river
Feel like I’m drowning
Drowning in a river

In three more days, I’ll leave this town
And disappear without a trace
A year from now, maybe settle down
Somewhere where no one knows my face

And I wish that I could hold you
One more time to ease the pain
But my time’s run out, now I got to go
Got to run away again

Still I catch myself thinking
One day I’ll find my way back here
You’ll save me from drowning
Drowning in a river
Drowning, drowning in a river of tears

Feels like I’m drowning
Feels like I’m drowning
Oh, how long must this go on?

Drowning in a river of tears

My choice for today is:

(Don’t Fear) The Reaper

Blue Öyster Cult

All our times have come
Here but now they’re gone
Seasons don’t fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain, we can be like they are

Come on baby, don’t fear the reaper
Baby take my hand, don’t fear the reaper
We’ll be able to fly, don’t fear the reaper
Baby I’m your man

La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la

Valentine is done
Here but now they’re gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity, Romeo and Juliet
40, 000 men and women everyday, Like Romeo and Juliet
40, 000 men and women everyday, Redefine happiness
Another 40, 000 coming everyday, We can be like they are

Come on baby, don’t fear the reaper
Baby take my hand, don’t fear the reaper
We’ll be able to fly, don’t fear the reaper
Baby I’m your man

La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la

Love of two is one
Here but now they’re gone
Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear she couldn’t go on

Then the door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew then disappeared
The curtains flew then he appeared, saying don’t be afraid
Come on baby, and she had no fear

And she ran to him, then they started to fly
They looked backward and said goodby, she had become like they are
She had taken his hand, she had become like they are
Come on baby, don’t fear the reaper

My choice for today is:

Oh Darlin’ What Have I Done

The White Buffalo

Oh darlin’, darlin’
What have I done?
Well I’ve been away from you too long
And all my days have turned to darkness
And I believe my heart has turned to stone
Oh darlin’, darlin’

What have I done?
Now I don’t say anything at all
Well God don’t listen to me, noways
Now I’m left here all aloneOoh, oh, I hear what the neighbors say
That that poor boy has lost his way
And I let the others pray

Oh darlin’, darlin’
What have I done?
Now I do my talking with a gun
And blood will spill into the gutters
And it will stain the morning sun

Ooh, oh tell me what the hell I’ve done
Can I stop at one?
Or have I just begun?

Take out the bodies that live
Oh, Lord, it gets me high
I think I’m gonna get my fill
Of taking lives

Oh, Lord, I don’t wanna let my baby down
Well I just wanna give us something one of a kind

Oh darlin’, darlin’
What have I done?
I’ve been astray from you too long
And all my days have turned to darkness
Hell is leaving the light on

And ooh, oh they’ll hang me way up high
God Himself will drop me from the sky
And let me swing a while

Oh darlin’, darlin’
What have I done?

Oh darlin’, darlin’
What have I done?

Oh darlin’, darlin’…..

Bad Moon Rising

Creedence Clearwater Revival

I see the bad moon arising
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin’
I see bad times todayDon’t go around tonight
Well, it’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise

I hear hurricanes a blowing
I know the end is coming soon
I fear rivers overflowing
I hear the voice of rage and ruin

Don’t go around tonight
Well, it’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise
(Alright)

Hope you’ve got your things together
Hope you are quite prepared to die
Looks like we’re in for nasty weather
One eye is taken for an eye

Well don’t go around tonight
Well it’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise

Don’t go around tonight
Well it’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise

Ring of Fire

Home Free – (featuring Avi Kaplan of Pentatonix)


Love is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring
And bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire, the ring of fire

The taste of love is sweet
When hearts like ours meet
And I fell for you like a child
Oh, but the fire went wild

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burn, burns
The ring of fire, the ring of fire

Yeah love is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher

And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire, the ring of fire
The ring of fire, the ring of fire

My choice for today is:

The Sound Of Silence

Disturbed


Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence


In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand… And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

Fools, said I, You do not know
Silence, like a cancer, grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you”
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls”
And whispered in the sounds of silence
