Your Majesty by Zac Brown Band


This is the 1st of the Zac Brown Band but it won't be the last. I don't have a ton but I do like a few of their hits. I'm least familiar with this song because it's one of their newer ones but I liked it enough to add it to the playlist.



First time I saw you, I just couldn't look away
Found what I'd been lookin' for, but I couldn't stay
But my heart was full and my eyes, they could not believe
How you wrapped your arms around me
Your majesty

I wanna slow it down where the water's deep
Get the northern keeling washing over me
Made me better man
And it's plain to see
The nature of your beauty puts my mind at ease

Uh, oh (Uh, oh)
Oooh
Uh, oh (Uh, oh)

Now I'm flyin' in to meet you, I can hardly wait
Do you know how much I've missed you since I've been away
Bringing all my love from Georgia, and I'm gonna lay
Under endless skies of emerald light, we can drift away

I wanna slow it down where the water's deep
Get the northern keeling washing over me
Made me better man
And it's plain to see
The nature of your beauty puts my mind at ease
And I'm humbled in the presence of your majesty

Uh, oh (Uh, oh)
Oooh
Uh, oh (Uh, oh)

Uh, oh (Uh, oh)
Oooh
Uh, oh (Uh, oh)

You can have it all
Burn all my things
To be at your feet
And kneel before my queen

Now I'm gonna stay out where the air is clean
'Cause I've freed myself from these city streets
Found a better man waking inside of me
The nature of your beauty puts me mind at ease
And I'm humbled in the presence of your majesty
And I kneel down in the presence of
Your majesty

Ooh!
Uh, oh (Uh, oh)
Oooh
Uh, oh (Uh, oh)
Uh, oh, oh-oh

Uh, oh (Uh, oh)
Oh, oh

Rodeo by Garth Brooks


Another Garth Brooks song but still not technically Garth. I have to use a cover band on Spotify since he won't put his music on there. I can listen to it for free on YouTube (see below) but let's not allow users that pay listen to it.



His eyes are cold and restless
His wounds have almost healed
And she'd give half of Texas
Just to change the way he feels
She knows his love's in Tulsa
And she knows he's gonna go
Well it ain't no woman flesh and blood
It's that damned old rodeo

Well it's bulls and blood
It's dust and mud
It's the roar of a Sunday crowd
It's the white in his knuckles
The gold in the buckle
He'll win the next go 'round
It's boots and chaps
It's cowboy hats
It's spurs and latigo
It's the ropes and the reins
And the joy and the pain
And they call the thing rodeo

She does her best to hold him
When his love comes to call
But his need for it controls him
And her back's against the wall
And it's So long girl I'll see you
When it's time for him to go
You know the woman wants her cowboy
Like he wants his rodeo

Well it's bulls and blood
It's dust and mud
It's the roar of a Sunday crowd
It's the white in his knuckles
The gold in the buckle
He'll win the next go 'round
It's boots and chaps
It's cowboy hats
It's spurs and latigo
It's the ropes and the reins
And the joy and the pain
And they call the thing rodeo
It'll drive a cowboy crazy
It'll drive the man insane
And he'll sell off everything he owns
Just to pay to play the game
And a broken home and some broken bones
Is all he'll have to show
For all the years that he spent chasin'
This dream they call rodeo

Well it's bulls and blood
It's dust and mud
It's the roar of a Sunday crowd
It's the white in his knuckles
The gold in the buckle
He'll win the next go 'round
It's boots and chaps
It's cowboy hats
It's spurs and latigo
It's the ropes and the reins
And the joy and the pain
And they call the thing rodeo

It's the broncs and the blood
It's the steers and the mud
And they call the thing rodeo

Headlights by Eminem and Nate Reuss


Love, love, love this song. I'm not a huge fan of Eminem but he has a few songs that I love, and a few songs that I like. This is one of the ones I love. If you don't know the history, he wrote a song ripping his mom back when he was younger and this is a song about the regret of his relationship with his mom.



[Verse 1: Nate Ruess]
Mom, I know I let you down
And though you say the days are happy
Why is the power off, and I'm fucked up?
And, Mom, I know he's not around
But don't you place the blame on me
As you pour yourself another drink, yeah.

[Hook: Nate Ruess]
I guess we are who we are
Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
Maybe we took this too far

[Verse 2: Eminem]
I went in headfirst
Never thinking about who what I said hurt, in what verse
My mom probably got it the worst
The brunt of it, but as stubborn as we are
Did I take it too far?
"Cleaning Out My Closet" and all them other songs
But regardless I don't hate you 'cause, Ma,
You're still beautiful to me, 'cause you're my mom
Though far be it from you to be calm, our house was Vietnam
Desert Storm and both of us put together can form an atomic bomb equivalent to Chemical warfare
And forever we can drag this on and on
But, agree to disagree
That gift from me up under the Christmas tree don't mean shit to me
You're kicking me out? It's 15 degrees and it's Christmas Eve (little prick just leave)
Ma, let me grab my fucking coat, anything to have each other's goats
Why we always at each other's throats?
Especially when dad, he fucked us both
We're in the same fucking boat, you'd think that it'd make us close (nope)
Further away it drove us, but together headlights shine, a car full of belongings
Still got a ways to go, back to grandma's house it's straight up the road
And I was the man of the house, the oldest, so my shoulders carried the weight of the load
Then Nate got taken away by the state at eight years old,
And that's when I realized you were sick and it wasn't fixable or changeable
And to this day we remained estranged and I hate it though, but

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Eminem]
'Cause to this day we remain estranged and I hate it though
'Cause you ain't even get to witness your grand babies grow
But I'm sorry, Mama, for "Cleaning Out My Closet", at the time I was angry
Rightfully maybe so, never meant that far to take it though,
'cause now I know it's not your fault, and I'm not making jokes
That song I no longer play at shows and I cringe every time it's on the radio
And I think of Nathan being placed in a home
And all the medicine you fed us
And how I just wanted you to taste your own,
But now the medications taken over
And your mental state's deteriorating slow
And I'm way too old to cry, the shit is painful though
But, Ma, I forgive you, so does Nathan, yo
All you did, all you said, you did your best to raise us both
Foster care, that cross you bear, few may be as heavy as yours
But I love you, Debbie Mathers, oh, what a tangled web we have,
'cause one thing I never asked was
Where the fuck my deadbeat dad was
Fuck it, I guess he had trouble keeping up with every address
But I'd have flipped every mattress, every rock and desert cactus
Own a collection of maps and followed my kids to the edge of the atlas
Someone ever moved them from me? That you coulda bet your asses
If I had to come down the chimney dressed as Santa, kidnap them
And although one has only met their grandma once
You pulled up in our drive one night as we were leaving to get some hamburgers
Me, her and Nate, we introduced you, hugged you
And as you left I had this overwhelming sadness come over me
As we pulled off to go our separate paths,
And I saw your headlights as I looked back
And I'm mad I didn't get the chance to thank you for being my Mom and my Dad
So, Mom, please accept this as a tribute I wrote this on the jet
I guess I had to get this off my chest,
I hope I get the chance to lay it before I'm dead
The stewardess said to fasten my seatbelt, I guess we're crashing
So if I'm not dreaming, I hope you get this message that I'll always love you from afar
'Cause you're my Ma

[Hook]

[Verse 4: Nate Ruess]
I want a new life (start over)
One without a cause (clean slate)
So I'm coming home tonight (yeah)
Well, no matter what the cost
And if the plane goes down
Or if the crew can't wake me up
Well, just know that I'm alright
I was not afraid to die
Oh, even if there's songs to sing
Well, my children will carry me
Just know that I'm alright
I was not afraid to die
Because I put my faith in my little girls
So I never say, "Goodbye, cruel world."
Just know that I'm alright
I am not afraid to die

[Hook]

I want a new life

Say Say Say by Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson


This is off of a Paul McCartney album but it features the king of pop. It's from the early 80's though so I definitely remember it.



Say, say, say what you want
But don't play games with my affection
Take, take, take what you need
But don't leave me with no direction

All alone, I sit home by the phone
Waiting for you, baby
Through the years
How can you stand to hear
My pleading for you dear?
You know I'm crying ooh ooh ooh ooh

Go, go, go where you want
But don't leave me here forever
You, you, you stay away
So long girl, I see you never

What can I do
Girl to get through to you?
Cause I love you, baby
Standing here, baptisted in all my tears
Baby through the years
You know I'm crying ooh ooh ooh ooh

You never ever worry
And you never shed a tear
You saying that my love ain't real
Just look at my face
These tears ain't drying

You, you, you can never say
That I'm not the one who really loves you
I pray, pray, pray every day
That you'll see things, girl like I do

What can I do girl, to get through to you?
Cause I love you baby
Standing here baptised in all my tears
Baby through the years
You know I'm crying, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

the Stroke by Billy Squier


Probably one of his most famous songs at least in my eyes, I do know it was his first big hit. It's the 2nd song by him here and the 2nd album listed and I still haven't had the album that I have specific memories of.



Now everybody
Have you heard
If you're in the game
Then the stroke's the word
Don't take no rhythm
Don't take no style
Gotta thirst for killin'
Grab your vial and 

Put your right hand out
Give a firm handshake
Talk to me about that one big break
Spread your Ear Pollution
Both far and wide
Keep your contributions
By your side and 

Stroke me, stroke me
Could be a winner boy you move mighty well
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
You got your number down
Stroke me, stroke me
Say you're a winner but man
You're just a sinner now

Put your left foot out
Keep it all in place
Work your way
Right into my face
First you try to bet me
You make my backbone slide
When you find you've bent me
Slip on by and

Stroke me, stroke me
Give me the reason this is all night long
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
Get yourself together boy
Stroke me, stroke me
Say you're a winner but man
You're just a sinner now
(Stroke, stroke, stroke, stroke, stroke, stroke, stroke)

Better listen now
Said it ain't no joke
Don't let your conscience fail ya'
Just do the stroke
Don't ya' take no chances
Keep your eye on top
Do your fancy dances
You can't stop you just

Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke, stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke, stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke, stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
Say you're a winner but man
You're just a sinner now

Believe in Love by Russ Taff


This is my favorite song by Russ Taff off of my favorite album of his which would explain why this is the 3rd song off of it when I only have 3 songs by him so far. I promise, I have more albums. As a matter of fact, if I checked, I could probably add him to the 20+ page.



After we have listened to everything
There is left to say
Watching ev'ry pretense of reality
Slowly fade away
Why is all we desire
Taken from our hands
Every dream is drifting away

There is understanding for everyone
Who has ears to hear
No more looking over your shoulder
For someone to appear
Well maybe,you should be looking
Right into His eyes
Say goodbye to someone elses lies

Chorus:
I've got to know
Do you believe in love
In all the things
You searched the world to find
But know nothing of..
Through the sun
Through the fire,and the rain
Nobody will ever hurt you, yeah
If you believe...
In love

Somedays I get up in the morning
And I wish I wasn't there
Life seems so incredibly lonely
When no one wants to care
But I've found somewhere in this heart
A Friend for life
To hold me close, 'til all my fears subside

I've got to know
Do you believe in love
In all the things
You searched the world to find
But know nothing of
Through the sun
Through the fire,and the rain
Nobody will ever hurt you
Nobody will break your world in two
If you believe
In love

(break)

Don't be afraid
Oh NO NO
Don't be afraid
Of the questions anymore
The answer lies waiting
Nobody, nobody, nobody
Will hurt you again
I still believe

I've got to know
Do you believe in love
In all the things
You searched the world to find
But know nothing of
Through the sun
Through the fire, and the rain
Nobody will ever hurt you
Nobody will break your world in two
If you believe
In love....

Surrender to Love...
Believe in Love...

Chorus

Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac


This is the 2nd of I'm sure at least a few more by Fleetwood Mac. They were definitely a staple of the late 70's, early 80's. Although I'm glad that I add previously posted songs on the bottom of these now since I realized the other one I posted got it's video deleted from YouTube so I corrected that.



Loving you
Isn't the right thing to do
How can I ever change things that I feel?

If I could
Baby I'd give you my world
How can I
When you won't take it from me?

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way

Tell me why
Everything turned around
Packing up
Shacking up's all you wanna do

If I could
Baby I'd give you my world
Open up
Everything's waiting for you

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way

We Are Young by Fun


I had never heard of them and I don't think I've heard another song from them, but I like this one.



Give me a second I,
I need to get my story straight
My friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the Empire State
My lover she’s waiting for me just across the bar
My seat’s been taken by some sunglasses asking 'bout a scar, and
I know I gave it to you months ago
I know you’re trying to forget
But between the drinks and subtle things
The holes in my apologies, you know
I’m trying hard to take it back
So if by the time the bar closes
And you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Now I know that I’m not
All that you got
I guess that I, I just thought
Maybe we could find new ways to fall apart
But our friends are back
So let’s raise a toast
‘Cause I found someone to carry me home

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Carry me home tonight (Nananananana)
Just carry me home tonight (Nananananana)
Carry me home tonight (Nananananana)
Just carry me home tonight (Nananananana)

The moon is on my side (Nananananana)
I have no reason to run (Nananananana)
So will someone come and carry me home tonight (Nananananana)
The angels never arrived (Nananananana)
But I can hear the choir (Nananananana)
So will someone come and carry me home (Nananananana)

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

So if by the time the bar closes
And you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home tonight

Southtown by P.O.D.


I believe this is the first song that I knew from POD and I ended up getting this album and at least one other. Needless to say, there will be a bunch of their songs here.



I never knew that a kid like me 
Could take his mic around the world and flash the big S.D. 
And rock the masses, from Madrid to Calabassas 
Tijuana, Mexico, bootleg demos in Tokyo 
They know me though, 'cause I be puttin' in work 
Commit my life to rebirth, well respected, 'cause that's my word 
I'm sure you heard, about a new sound going around 
She might have left my hood, but she was born in my town 

We rep. the South, so what you talking about 
I'm not running off my mouth, I know this without a doubt 
'Cause if you know these streets, then these streets know you 
When it's time to handle business, then you know what to do 
Me and my crew, we stay true, old skool or new 
Many were called, but the chosen are few 
We rise to the top, what you want? Just in case you forgot 
Rush the stage, grab my mic, show me what you got 

[b-section:]
You didn't know, thought we was new on the scene 
Well, it's alright! It's alright! 
I know you know, I see you smiling at me 
Well, it's alright! It's alright! 

[chorus:]
Boom! Here comes the Boom! 
Ready or not, here comes the boys from the South 
Boom! Here comes the Boom! 
How you like me now? 

[bridge:]
Is that all you got? 
I'll take your best shot.

Don't You Want Me by the Human League


I always have to sing the, don't, don't you want me, in a deep voice. It's a must. I don't know if I have any other songs by them or not. To be honest, I'm not sure if I know anymore of them.



You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar, when I met you
I picked you out, I shook you up
And turned you around, turned you into someone new
Now five years later on you've got the world at your feet
Success has been so easy for you
But don't forget it's me who put you where you are now
And I can put you back there too
Don't, don't you want me?
You know I can't believe it
When I hear that you won't see me
Don't, don't you want me?
You know I don't believe you
When you say that you don't need me
It's much to late to find
When you think you've changed your mind
You'd better change it back or we will both be sorry
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, oh?
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, oh?

I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
That much is true
But even then I knew I'd find a much better place
Either with or without you
The five years we have had have been such good times
I still love you
But now I think it's time I live my life on my own
I guess it's just what I must do
Don't, don't you want me?
You know I can't believe it
When I hear that you won't see me
Don't, don't you want me?
You know I don't believe you
When you say that you don't need me
It's much to late to find
When you think you've changed your mind
You'd better change it back or we will both be sorry
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, oh?
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, oh?

Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, oh?
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, oh?
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, oh?
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, oh?
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, oh?
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, oh?
Don't you want me, baby?
