    GREEN DAY - WAKE ME UP WHEN SEPTEMBER ENDS


    WAKE ME UP WHEN SEPTEMBER ENDS

    Summer has come and passed
    The innocent can never last
    wake me up when September ends

    like my father's come to pass
    seven years has gone so fast
    wake me up when September ends

    here comes the rain again
    falling from the stars
    drenched in my pain again
    becoming who we are

    as my memory rests
    but never forgets what I lost
    wake me up when September ends

    summer has come and passed
    the innocent can never last
    wake me up when September ends

    ring out the bells again
    like we did when spring began
    wake me up when September ends

    here comes the rain again
    falling from the stars
    drenched in my pain again
    becoming who we are

    as my memory rests
    but never forgets what I lost
    wake me up when September ends

    Summer has come and passed
    The innocent can never last
    wake me up when September ends

    like my father's come to pass
    twenty years has gone so fast
    wake me up when September ends
    wake me up when September ends
    wake me up when September ends

    MANIC STREET PREACHERS - IF YOU TOLERATE THIS, YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE NEXT



    "If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next"

    The future teaches you to be alone
    The present to be afraid and cold
    So if I can shoot rabbits
    Then I can shoot fascists

    Bullets for your brain today
    But we'll forget it all again
    Monuments put from pen to paper
    Turns me into a gutless wonder

    And if you tolerate this
    Then your children will be next
    And if you tolerate this
    Then your children will be next
    Will be next
    Will be next
    Will be next

    Gravity keeps my head down
    Or is it maybe shame
    At being so young and being so vain

    Holes in your head today
    But I'm a pacifist
    I've walked La Ramblas
    But not with real intent

    And if you tolerate this
    Then your children will be next
    And if you tolerate this
    Then your children will be next
    Will be next
    Will be next
    Will be next
    Will be next

    And on the street tonight an old man plays
    With newspaper cuttings of his glory days

    And if you tolerate this
    Then your children will be next
    And if you tolerate this
    Then your children will be next
    Will be next
    Will be next
    Will be next

    THE VERVE - SONNET



    My friend and me
    Looking through her red box of memories
    Faded I'm sure
    But love seems to stick in her veins you know


    Yes, there's love if you want it
    Don't sound like no sonnet, my lord
    Yes, there's love if you want it
    Don't sound like no sonnet, my lord
    My lord


    Why can't you see
    That nature has its way of warning me
    Eyes open wide
    Looking at the heavens with a tear in my eye


    Yes, there's love if you want it
    Don't sound like no sonnet, my lord
    Yes, there's love if you want it
    Don't sound like no sonnet, my lord
    My lord


    Sinking fast within a boat without a hull
    My lord
    Dreaming about the day when I can see you there
    My side
    By my side


    Here we go again and my head is gone, my lord
    I stop to say hello
    'Cause I think you should know by now
    By now
    By now
    By now
    By now
    By now
    Oh, by now
    Oh, by now
    Oh, by now
    Oh, by now
