I Won't Send Roses (Michael Feinstein)


Ha, what a great piece! "Should I love you, you would be
the last to know
"


Forget my shoulder
When you're in need
Forgetting birthdays
Is guaranteed
And should I love you, you would be
The last to know
I won't send roses
And roses suit you so

Only One Life Nov 27, 2007

Wenjer,

Glad you liked it. Here's another song performed by Michael Feinstein ...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHG2_OJ3X_8


Only One Life (Michael Feinstein)


Only one life
Just a single spark
But now that he is gone
I'm somewhere in the dark
If there are ten million men
on this planet, tell me then
How could only one life
Leave such a mark on me
One life
How could I have known
One life
Could be such a part of me
More precious than my own
Only one life

Only one life
What does it mean
It's only birth and death
And everything between
If living is a pointless chore
Just existence, and nothing more
Why does only one life
Leave such an empty space
One life
Make it right or wrong
One life
Take a love I can't replace
That always will belong
To only one life

Just another soul among so many
So who cares if one should fall
But though we're small
We're full of magic when we
Touch the world, we change it all
With only one life

We only have one chance to fight
But if we live it right
All we need is one life
To make a difference here
One life
It's such a small amount
One life
To say we care so loud and clear
We have to make it count
After all
With only one life

Rainy Days And Mondays Nov 27, 2007

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPmbT5XC-q0


Rainy Days And Mondays (Karen Carpenter)


Talkin' to myself and feelin' old
Sometimes I'd like to quit
Nothing ever seems to fit
Hangin' around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down

What I've got they used to call the blues
Nothin' is really wrong
Feelin' like I don't belong
Walkin' around
Some kind of lonely clown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down

Funny but it seems I always wind up here with you
Nice to know somebody loves me
Funny but it seems that it's the only thing to do
Run and find the one who loves me

What I feel has come and gone before
No need to talk it out
We know what it's all about
Hangin' around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down

My ex and present like both songs, too. They depict some part of me, they say. Well, I am not romantic and I do care a lot. A good life do not have to be a romantic one. The right attitude to enjoy could be more important than anything else.

Amarillo by Morning (George Strait)


Amarillo by morning, up from San Antone
Everything that I got is just what I've got on
When that sun is high in that Texas sky
I'll be bucking it to county fair
Amarillo by morning, Amarillo I'll be there

They took my saddle in Houston, broke my leg in Santa Fe
Lost my wife and a girlfriend somewhere along the way
Well I'll be looking for eight when they pull that gate
And I hope that judge ain't blind
Amarillo by morning, Amarillo's on my mind

Amarillo by morning, up from San Antone
Everything that I got is just what I've got on
I ain't got a dime, but what I got is mine
I ain't rich, but Lord I'm free
Amarillo by morning, Amarillo's where I'll be
Amarillo by morning, Amarillo's where I'll be

Amarillo, TX Nov 27, 2007

Wenjer,

It's a city in Texas up around the panhandle where cattle is one of the major industries.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amarillo,_Texas



The city has events and attractions honoring the cowboy and Texas culture. During the third week of September, the Tri-State Fair & Rodeo brings participants mostly from Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas to Amarillo since 1921.[46] On the Tri-State Exposition grounds, the Amarillo National Center is a special events center for events ranging from national equestrian competitions to motor sports and rodeos. The World Championship Ranch Rodeo sponsored by the Working Ranch Cowboys Association is held every November in the Amarillo Civic Center. Amarillo hosts the annual World Championship Chuckwagon Roundup the first weekend in June. Teams in competition prepare a feast of breaded beef cutlets, mashed potatoes, baked beans, and sourdough biscuits and attempt to duplicate the food served on western cattle trails of the 1860s and 1870s.[47] The Amarillo Livestock Auction holds a free to the public cattle auction on Tuesdays. Now located on Interstate 40, The Big Texan Steak Ranch, was made famous by offering visitors a free 72 ounce (2 kg) beef steak if they eat it and its accompanying dinner in under an hour.

Thanks, Steven! "Amarillo" means "yellow" in Spanish. That's why I was wondering. Now it makes sense to me, Amarillo by Morning. Driving the night through, right? That's horrible. I did it several times in Europe and South America when I was already old, when not older.

The Yellow Rose of Texas Nov 27, 2007

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=IyZpOAyGq1Q

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=ID6NPtfu7XU (Asleep At The Wheel)


The Yellow Rose of Texas


There's a yellow rose in Texas that I am gonna see
Nobody else could miss her, not half as much as me
She cried so when I left her, it liked to broke my heart
And if I ever find her, we nevermore will part

She's the sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosalee
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me


When the Rio Grande is flowing and starry skies are bright
She walks along the river in the quiet summer night
I know that she remembers when we parted long ago
I promised to return and not to leave her so

She's the sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosalee
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me


Oh, now I'm gonna find her for my heart is full of woe
We'll do the things together we did so long ago
We'll play the bango gaily, she'll love me like before
And the yellow rose of Texas shall be mine forevermore

She's the sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosalee
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me

The Eyes of Texas

The Eyes of Texas are upon you
All the live long day
The Eyes of Texas are upon you
You cannot get away
Do not think you can escape them
At night, or early in the morn
The Eyes of Texas are upon you
Till Gabriel blows his horn

恰似你的溫柔 Nov 27, 2007

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tstS4W3gNo
www.youtube.com/watch?v=1WqhF6hRiiM

歌曲:恰似你的溫柔
歌手:蔡琴
專輯:你不要那樣看著我的

歌詞:

某年某月的某一天,
就象一張破碎的臉.
難以開口道再見,
就讓一切走遠.
這不是一件容易的事,
我們卻都沒有哭泣.
讓它淡淡地來,
讓它好好地去.
到如今年復一年,
我不能停止懷念.
懷念你,懷念從前.
但願那海風再起,
只為那浪花的手,
恰似你的溫柔.
某年某月的某一天,
就象一張破碎的臉.
難以開口道再見,
就讓一切走遠.
這不是一件容易的事,
我們卻都沒有哭泣.
讓它淡淡地來,
讓它好好地去.
到如今年復一年,
我不能停止懷念.
懷念你,懷念從前.
但願那海風再起,
只為那浪花的手,
恰似你的溫柔.
到如今年復一年,
我不能停止懷念.
懷念你,懷念從前.
但願那海風再起,
只為那浪花的手,
恰似你的溫柔.
