    Mine has got to be:

    Its hard for me to say the things
    I want to say sometimes
    Theres no one here but you and me
    And that broken old street light
    Lock the doors
    Well leave the world outside
    All Ive got to give to you
    Are these five words when i

    Chorus:
    Thank you for loving me
    For being my eyes
    When I couldnt see
    For parting my lips
    When I couldnt breathe
    Thank you for loving me
    Thank you for loving me

    I never knew I had a dream
    Until that dream was you
    When I look into your eyes
    The skys a different blue
    Cross my heart
    I wear no disguise
    If I tried, youd make believe
    That you believed my lies

    Chorus:
    Thank you for loving me
    For being my eyes
    When I couldnt see
    For parting my lips
    When I couldnt breathe
    Thank you for loving me

    You pick me up when I fall down
    You ring the bell before they count me out
    If I was drowning you would part the sea
    And risk your own life to rescue me

    Solo

    Lock the doors
    Well leave the world outside
    All Ive got to give to you
    Are these five words when i

    Chorus:
    Thank you for loving me
    For being my eyes
    When I couldnt see
    You parted my lips
    When I couldnt breathe
    Thank you for loving me

    When I couldnt fly
    Oh, you gave me wings
    You parted my lips
    When I couldnt breathe
    Thank you for loving me

    Judy Collins & Leonard Cohen - Suzanne



    Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
    You can hear the boats go by
    You can spend the night beside her
    And you know that she's half crazy
    But that's why you want to be there
    And she feeds you tea and oranges
    That come all the way from China
    And just when you mean to tell her
    That you have no love to give her
    Then she gets you on her wavelength
    And she lets the river answer
    That you've always been her lover
    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you know that she will trust you
    For you've touched her perfect body with your mind.
    And Jesus was a sailor
    When he walked upon the water
    And he spent a long time watching
    From his lonely wooden tower
    And when he knew for certain
    Only drowning men could see him
    He said "All men will be sailors then
    Until the sea shall free them"
    But he himself was broken
    Long before the sky would open
    Forsaken, almost human
    He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
    And you want to travel with him
    And you want to travel blind
    And you think maybe you'll trust him
    For he's touched your perfect body with his mind.

    Now Suzanne takes your hand
    And she leads you to the river
    She is wearing rags and feathers
    From Salvation Army counters
    And the sun pours down like honey
    On our lady of the harbour
    And she shows you where to look
    Among the garbage and the flowers
    There are heroes in the seaweed
    There are children in the morning
    They are leaning out for love
    And they will lean that way forever
    While Suzanne holds the mirror
    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you know that you can trust her
    For she's touched your perfect body with her mind.

    Righteous Brothers - Unchained Melody

    Oh, my love, my darling
    I've hungered for your touch
    A long, lonely time
    And time goes by so slowly
    And time can do so much
    Are you still mine?
    I need your love, I need your love
    God speed your love to me

    Lonely rivers flow
    To the sea, to the sea
    To the open arms of the sea
    Lonely rivers sigh
    "Wait for me, wait for me"
    I'll be coming home; wait for me

    Oh, my love, my darling
    I've hungered, hungered for your touch
    A long, lonely time
    And time goes by so slowly
    And time can do so much
    Are you still mine?
    I need your love, I need your love
    God speed your love to me

    Strangers in the Night by Frank Sinatra
    I used to waltz with a partner to this song a lot as a teen.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAEQzVv_Itc

    Also Viņi dejoja vienu vasaru by Imants Kalniņš (composer)
    (They danced one summer) A very beautiful song, I suggest you listen to it.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdN2JcHwars


    Lyrics:

    They were dancing for one summer...
    They were dancing for one summer...
    They were dancing for one summer...
    And after that...
    After that...
    After that...
    Now each to his own destiny,
    Now each to his own destiny,
    Now each to his own destiny,
    Asks -
    What then should have been after that?

    They were dancing for one summer...
    They were dancing for one summer...
    They were dancing for one summer...
    And even now
    Those light bulbs are running!
    At the tree tops look or at the sky,
    At the tree tops look or at the sky,
    At the tree tops look or at the sky,
    Light bulbs are running!
    Stars are running!

    The days are running and line up in weeks.
    Each month becomes calmer...
    And then,
    Comes the time when [they] do not dance,
    And then the days like entangled wade...

    So it happens - [it] passes and calms...
    So it happens - [it] passes and calms...
    So it happens - [it] passes and calms...
    But, when you are alone -
    Close [your] eyes and [it is] again like then...
    Close [your] eyes and [it is] again like then...
    Close [your] eyes and [it is] again like then...
    Light bulbs are running!
    Stars are running!
    Light bulbs are running...!

    So we each for one summer,
    So we each for one summer,
    So we each for one summer,
    And even still those lapwings are yelling...
    Yelling like a question, a reproach, a query...
    Yelling like a question, a reproach, a query...
    Yelling like a question, a reproach, a query...
    While in eternal sleep [you] are descending.

    Don't wanna miss a thing - Aerosmith



    I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
    Watch you smile while you are sleeping
    While you're far away and dreaming
    I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
    I could stay lost in this moment forever
    Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure
    I don't wanna close my eyes
    I don't wanna fall asleep
    Cause I'd miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing
    Cause even when I dream of you
    The sweetest dream will never do
    I'd still miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing

    Lying close to you feeling your heart beating
    And I'm wondering what you're dreaming
    Wondering if it's me you're seeing
    Then I kiss your eyes and thank God we're together
    And I just wanna stay with you
    In this moment forever, forever and ever

    I don't wanna close my eyes
    I don't wanna fall asleep
    Cause I'd miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing
    Cause even when I dream of you
    The sweetest dream will never do
    I'd still miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing

    I don't wanna miss one smile
    I don't wanna miss one kiss
    Well, I just wanna be with you
    Right here with you, just like this
    I just wanna hold you close
    Feel your heart so close to mine
    And stay here in this moment
    For all the rest of time

    Don't wanna close my eyes
    Don't wanna fall asleep
    Cause I'd miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing
    Cause even when I dream of you
    The sweetest dream will never do
    Cause I'd still miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing

    I don't wanna close my eyes
    I don't wanna fall asleep
    Cause I'd miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing
    Cause even when I dream of you
    The sweetest dream will never do
    I'd still miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing

    Don't wanna close my eyes
    Don't wanna fall asleep, yeah

    --------------------------


    How deep is your love


    I know your eyes in the morning sun
    I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
    And the moment that you wander far from me
    I wanna feel you in my arms again

    And you come to me on a summer breeze
    Keep me warm in your love and then softly leave
    And its me you need to show

    Chorus:
    How deep is your love
    I really need to learn
    cause were living in a world of fools
    Breaking us down
    When they all should let us be
    We belong to you and me

    I believe in you
    You know the door to my very soul
    Youre the light in my deepest darkest hour
    Youre my saviour when I fall
    And you may not think
    I care for you
    When you know down inside
    That I really do
    And its me you need to show


    I don't wanna miss a thing

    COLD, COLD HEART
    --Hank Williams

    (Sorry, I can't find a good video. There's only one of Hank doing it, more than 50 years ago, and it's not a good production.)

    I've tried so hard, my dear, to show that you're my every dream.
    Yet you're afraid each thing I do is just some evil scheme.
    A memory from your lonesome past keeps us so far apart.
    Why can't I free your doubtful mind, and melt your cold, cold heart?

    Another love, before my time, made your heart sad and blue.
    And so my heart is paying now, for things I didn't do.
    In anger unkind words are said that make the teardrops start.
    Why can't I free your doubtful mind, and melt your cold, cold heart?

    You'll never know how much it hurts to see you sit and cry.
    You know you need and want my love, but you're afraid to try.
    The more I learn to care for you, the more we drift apart.
    Why can't I free your doubtful mind, and melt your cold, cold heart?

    There was a time when I believed that you belonged to me.
    But now I know your heart is shackled to a memory.
    Why do you run and hide from life? To try it just ain't smart.
    Why can't I free your doubtful mind, and melt your cold, cold heart?

    Lay Lady Lay by Bob Dylan

    Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
    Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
    Whatever colors you have in your mind
    I'll show them to you and you'll see them shine

    Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
    Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
    Until the break of day, let me see you make him smile
    His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean
    And you're the best thing that he's ever seen

    Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
    Why wait any longer for the world to begin
    You can have your cake and eat it too
    Why wait any longer for the one you love
    When he's standing in front of you

    Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
    Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead
    I long to see you in the morning light
    I long to reach for you in the night
    Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead

    BRAD PAISLEY LYRICS

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8O3Plt8DyMk

    "I'm Gonna Miss Her"

    Well I love her
    But I love to fish
    I spend all day out on this lake
    And hell is all I catch
    Today she met me at the door
    Said I would have to choose
    If I hit that fishin' hole today
    She'd be packin' all her things
    And she'd be gone by noon

    so I'm gonna miss her
    When I get home
    But right now I'm on this lake shore
    And I'm sittin' in the sun
    I'm sure it'll hit me
    When I walk through that door tonight
    Yeah, I'm gonna miss her
    Oh, look there, another bite

    Now there's a chance that if I hurry
    I could beg her to stay
    But that water's right
    And the weather's perfect
    No tellin' what I might catch today

    so I'm gonna miss her
    When I get home
    But right now I'm on this lake shore
    And I'm sittin' in the sun
    I'm sure it'll hit me
    When I walk through that door tonight
    Yeah, I'm gonna miss her
    Oh, look there, another bite

    Yeah, I'm gonna miss her
    Oh, look there, another bite

    MELISSA by the Allman Brothers

    Crossroads, seem to come and go, yeah.
    The gypsy flies from coast to coast

    Knowing many, loving none,
    Bearing sorrow havin' fun,
    But back home he'll always run
    To sweet Melissa... mmm...

    Freight train, each car looks the same, all the same.
    And no one knows the Gypsy's name

    No one hears his lonely sighs,
    There are no blankets where he lies.
    In all his deepest dreams the Gypsy flies
    with sweet Melissa... mmm...

    Again the morning's come,
    Again he's on the run,
    Sunbeams shining through his hair,
    Appearing not to have a care.
    Well, pick up your gear and Gypsy roll on, roll on.

    Crossroads, will you ever let him go? (Lord, Lord)
    Will you hide the dead man's ghost,
    Or will he lie, beneath the clay,
    or will his spirit float away?

    But I know that he won't stay without Melissa.

    Yes I know that he won't stay without Melissa.

    All I Ask of You
    Sarah Brightman/Phantom of the Opera

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKAmUveubZw

    No more talk of darkness
    Forget these wide-eyed fears
    I'm here
    Nothing can harm you
    My words will warm and calm you
    Let me be your freedom
    Let daylight dry your tears
    I'm here
    With you, beside you
    To guard you and to guide you

    Say you love me every weakening moment
    Turn my head with talk to summertime
    Say you need me with you now and always
    Promise me that all you say is true
    That's all I ask of you

    Let me be your shelter
    Let me be your light
    You're safe
    No one will find you
    Your fears are far behind you

    All I want is freedom
    A world with no more night
    And you
    Always beside me
    To hold me and to hide me

    Then say you'll share with me one love,
    One lifetime
    Let me lead you from your solitude
    Say you want me
    And you need me
    Beside you
    Anywhere you go, let me go too
    That's all I ask of you

    Say you'll share with me one love
    One lifetime
    Say the word and I will follow you
    Share each day with me,
    Each night, each morning
    Say you love me
    You know I do
    Love me, that's all I ask you
    Love me, that's all I ask of you

    3. Stripped, Raped And Strangled

    [Music by Webster, Owen, Barret]

    They think they know who I am
    All they know is I love to kill
    Face down, dead on the ground
    Find me before another is found

    I come alive in the darkness
    Left murdered and nameless
    Dead unburied and rotten
    Half eaten by insects

    She was so beautiful
    I had to kill her

    Tied her up
    And taped her mouth shut
    Couldn't scream
    Raped violently
    Rope tight, around her throat
    Her body twitches
    As she chokes

    Strangulation caused her death
    Just like all the others
    Raped before and after death
    Stripped, naked, tortured

    They're all dead, they're all dead
    They're all dead, by strangulation

    I come alive in the darkness
    Left murdered and nameless
    Dead unburied and rotten
    Half eaten by insects

    It felt so good to kill

    I took their lives away
    7 dead, lying rotten
    Unburied victims
    their naked bodies putrefy

    Strangulation caused her death
    Just like all the others
    Raped before and after death
    Stripped, naked, tortured

    They're all dead, they're all dead
    They're all dead, by strangulation

    I come alive in the darkness
    Left murdered and nameless
    Dead unburied and rotten
    Half eaten by insects

    They think they know who I am
    All they know is I love to kill
    Face down, dead on the ground
    Find me before another is found

    Flaming Lips, "Buggin' (Remix)"
    All those bugs buzzin’ 'round your head:
    Well, they fly in the air as you comb your hair,
    And the summertime will make you itch the mosquito bites

    The buzz of love is busy buggin’ you.
    Well, they fly in the air as you comb your hair,
    And they’re splattered up and down your windshield and the headlights.

    Well, they bite,
    Yeah, they bite,
    And you can see them there.

    Well, they bite,
    Yeah, they bite,
    But you can tell they’re there.

    Does love buzz because that’s what it does?
    Well, they fly in the air as you comb your hair,
    And the summertime will make you itch the mosquito bites.

    Well, they fly in the air as you comb your hair,
    And they’re splattered up and down your windshield and the headlights

    Fly in the air, comb your hair.
    Flies in the air, comb your hair.​

    Look, I don't have a favorite love song. I gave up on love songs years ago. I suppose I can find one, though ....

    • • •​

    Peter Murphy, "I'll Fall With Your Knife"
    To the crowd,
    To the world,
    You were so dry,
    And with a token bird I made:
    Sent it to fly
    Right to your side;
    With a broken wing you sail.
    Oh, like winter in July:
    A barren river wide;
    I'll pray for the flood
    to wash on you—
    It's here, I'll be with you.

    Well if the birds
    Can reach the sky
    To this land,
    I'll be with you
    'Til the sun bursts from your side.
    With my hands
    I'll reach to you.
    When you think your chance is passing by,
    When you blow your moon away,
    I'll bleed like the reed,
    Fall with your knife—
    It's here I'll be with you.

    To the crowd,
    To the world,
    You were so dry,
    And with a token bird I made:
    Sent it to fly
    Right to your side;
    With a broken wing you sail.
    Oh, like winter in July:
    A barren river wide;
    I'll pray for the flood
    to wash on you—
    It's here, I'll be with you.​

    The Velvet Underground & Nico - I'll Be Your Mirror


    I'll be your mirror
    Reflect what you are, in case you don't know
    I'll be the wind, the rain and the sunset
    The light on your door to show that you're home

    When you think the night has seen your mind
    That inside you're twisted and unkind
    Let me stand to show that you are blind
    Please put down your hands
    'Cause I see you

    I find it hard to believe you don't know
    The beauty that you are
    But if you don't let me be your eyes
    A hand in your darkness, so you won't be afraid

    When you think the night has seen your mind
    That inside you're twisted and unkind
    Let me stand to show that you are blind
    Please put down your hands
    'Cause I see you

    I'll be your mirror

    "Your House"-Alanis Morissette

    I went to your house
    Walked up the stairs
    I opened your door without ringing the bell
    I walked down the hall
    Into your room
    Where I could smell you
    And I shouldn't be here, without permission
    I shouldn't be here

    Would you forgive me love
    If I danced in your shower
    Would you forgive me love
    If I laid in your bed
    Would you forgive me love
    If I stay all afternoon

    I took off my clothes
    Put on your robe
    I went through your drawers
    And found your cologne
    Went down to the den
    Found your CD's
    And I played your Joni
    And I shouldn't stay long, you might be home soon
    I shouldn't stay long

    Would you forgive me love
    If I danced in your shower
    Would you forgive me love
    If I laid in your bed
    Would you forgive me love
    If I stay all afternoon

    I burned your incense
    I ran a bath
    I noticed a letter that sat on your desk
    It said "Hello love, I love you so love, meet me at midnight"
    And no, it wasn't my writing
    I'd better go soon
    It wasn't my writing

    So forgive me love
    If I cry in your shower
    So forgive me love
    For the salt in your bed
    So forgive me love
    If I cry all afternoon

    "Can't Fight This Feelin"


    I cant fight this feeling any longer
    And yet Im still afraid to let it flow
    What started out as friendship, has grown stronger
    I only wish I had the strength to let it show

    I tell myself that I cant hold out forever
    I said there is no reason for my fear
    Cause I feel so secure when were together
    You give my life direction
    You make everything so clear

    And even as I wander
    Im keeping you in sight
    Youre a candle in the window
    On a cold, dark winters night
    And Im getting closer than I ever thought I might

    And I cant fight this feeling anymore
    Ive forgotten what I started fighting for
    Its time to bring this ship into the shore
    And throw away the oars, forever

    Cause I cant fight this feeling anymore
    Ive forgotten what I started fighting for
    And if I have to crawl upon the floor
    Come crashing through your door
    Baby, I cant fight this feeling anymore

    My life has been such a whirlwind since I saw you
    Ive been running round in circles in my mind
    And it always seems that Im following you, girl
    Cause you take me to the places that alone Id never find

    And even as I wander Im keeping you in sight
    Youre a candle in the window on a cold, dark winters night
    And Im getting closer than I ever thought I might

    And I cant fight this feeling anymore
    Ive forgotten what I started fighting for
    Its time to bring this ship into the shore
    And throw away the oars, forever

    Cause I cant fight this feeling anymore
    Ive forgotten what I started fighting for
    And if I have to crawl upon the floor
    Come crushing through your door
    Baby, I cant fight this feeling anymore
