Snippits of Favorites

It's interesting to see what your favorite songs have in common. Disjointed yes, but put pieces of them together and you find an interesting picture beginning to form:

You are the bearer of unconditional things
You held your breath and the door for me
Thanks for your patience


But deep inside, I see the light
I'm a runaway victim left alone
At night though you lay so far
We both stare out at the same old stars
Wishing for direction where to go

Ah, the night is callin'
And it whispers to me softly, "come and play"
But I, I am fallin'
And if I let myself go I'm the only one to blame
I'm safe up high, nothing can touch me


I'll take every moment, I know that I own them
It's all up to you to do whatever you choose
Live like you're dying, never stop trying
It's all you can do, use what's been given to you


So hoist up the john b sail
See how the mainsail sets
Call for the captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home, let me go home
Why don't you let me go home?

We belong to the light
We belong to the thunder
We belong to the sound of the words
We've both fallen under


Memories made in the coldest winter
Goodbye, my friend


He met her up in Delaware in 1937
She was wearing red lipstick to match her pretty dress
December 24th at a quarter 'till eleven is when he finally
Gained the courage to ask her to dance

And you can't find nothing at all
If there was nothing there all along
There were churches, theme parks and malls
But there was nothing there all along


Baba yetu, yetu uliye
Mbinguni yetu, yetu, amina!
Baba yetu, yetu, uliye
Jina lako elu tukuzwe.

Ufalme wako ufike utakalo
Lifanyike duniani kama mbinguni
