You seem so sad...why not smile

They say it comes in threes; love, hope and misery
And the first two have gone and tell me if I’m wrong
I hope that I am and you don’t hate me
Don’t be mad, I’m just a man
And I know, and I know, and I know, and I know
And I know, and I know that you must hate me

Holding back the reasons not to love you
Try to find the way
But when you’re feeling down and lonely
It makes it hard to say

Jake Bugg

She is liberty, and she comes to rescue me.
Hope, faith, her vanity
The greatest gift is gold.

Sleep comes like a drug in God’s country
Sad eyes, crooked crosses, in God’s country


Rock me on the water
Sister will you soothe my fevered brow
Rock me on the water, maybe I’ll remember
Maybe I’ll remember how
Rock me on the water
The wind is with me now
So rock me on the water
I’ll get down to the sea somehow

Jackson Browne

Everyone’s a winner, baby, that’s the truth
Making love to you is such a thrill
Everyone’s a winner, baby, that’s no lie
You never fail to satisfy

  • Hot Chocolate “Every 1’s a Winner”

But this ain’t no dream we’re living out through the night
And, girl, you want it, you take it, you pay the price to

Prove it all night, prove it all night
Prove it all night girl and call the bluff
We prove it all night, prove it all night
Girl, I prove it all night for your love

Bruce Springsteen

And for your love
I would do anything
Just to see you smile upon your face
For your love
I would go anywhere
Just you tell me and I’ll be right there

  • Stevie Wonder

To thrill you with delight
I’ll give you diamonds bright
There’ll be things that will excite
To make you dream of me at night

For your love
For your love
For your love
For your love…

  • The Yardbirds “For Your Love”

Josie’s on a vacation far away
Come around and talk it over
So many things that I want to say
You know I like my girls a little bit older
I just want to use your love tonight
I don’t want to lose your love tonight

We’re gonna break out the hats and hooters
When Josie comes home
We’re gonna rev up the motor scooters
When Josie comes home to stay
We’re gonna park in the street
Sleep on the beach and make it
Throw down the jam till the girls say when
Lay down the law and break it
When Josie comes home

Steely Dan

So shine bright, tonight, you and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

  • Rihanna “Diamonds”

I’d like to change the world
It’s easier than changing me
And I’d like to find one girl who knows me
Strum bang the drum around or put it down
And figure out if I’m out of line
Sit around and figure out if I’m wasting time
Wait for the sign, it’s time to shine, shine, shine

(Carbon Leaf)

Come on you target for faraway laughter,
Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine
You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.

And every single person is a Slim Shady lurking
He could be working at Burger King, spitting on your onion rings
Or in the parking lot, circling
Screaming “I don’t give a fuck!”
With his windows down and his system up
So, will the real Shady please stand up?
And put one of those fingers on each hand up?
And be proud to be outta your mind and outta control
And one more time, loud as you can, how does it go?


The day I tried to live
I wallowed in the blood and mud
With all the other pigs, hey
Singing one more time around might do it
One more time around might make it
One more time around I might do it
One more time around I might make it
The day I tried to live, yeah
I tried

  • Soundgarden

Your talk’ll be somethin’ that shouldn’t be said out loud
Honestly, I thought that I would be dead by now (Wow)
Callin’ security, keepin’ my head held down
Bury the hatchet or bury your friend right now
For the debt I owe, gotta sell my soul
I wanna end me

Billie Eilish

With no loving in our souls
And no money in our coats
You can’t say we’re satisfied
Angie, I still love you, baby
Everywhere I look, I see your eyes
There ain’t a woman that comes close to you
Come on, baby, dry your eyes
Angie, Angie
Ain’t it good to be alive?
They can’t say we never tried

  • The Rolling Stones

So if what you have is working for you, or you think that it can stand a reasonable chance, and whatever’s broken seems fixable and nothing’s beyond repair
If you still think about each other and smile before you remember how screwed up it’s gotten or maybe dream of a time less rotten
Remember, it ain’t too late to take a deep breath and throw yourself into it with everything you got

It’s great to be alive

Gonna be a world of hurt
Gonna be a world of hurt
Gonna be a world of hurt…

  • Drive Truckers “A World of Hurt”

Self-professed, profound
'Til the chips were down
Though you’re a gambling man
Love is a losing hand

Though I battle blind
Love is a fate resigned
Memories mar my mind
Love, it is a fate resigned

Over futile odds
And laughed at by the gods
And now the final frame
Love is a losing game

Amy Winehouse

You got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em
Know when to walk away and know when to run
You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table
There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealing’s done

(Kenny Rogers)

I wanna roll with him a hard pair we will be
A little gambling is fun when you’re with me, I love it
Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun
And baby when it’s love if it’s not rough it isn’t fun, fun

Lady GaGa
