Warren Zevon and Jorge Calderon, “Keep Me in Your Heart”

Shadows are fallin’ and I’m runnin’ out of breath
Keep me in your heart for a while
If I leave you it doesn’t mean I love you any less
Keep me in your heart for a while

When you get up in the mornin’ and you see that crazy sun
Keep me in your heart for a while
There’s a train leavin’ nightly called “When All is Said and Done”
Keep me in your heart for a while

Keep me in your heart for a while

Keep me in your heart for a while

Sometimes when you’re doin’ simple things around the house
Maybe you’ll think of me and smile
You know I’m tied to you like the buttons on your blouse
Keep me in your heart for a while

Hold me in your thoughts
Take me to your dreams
Touch me as I fall into view
When the winter comes
Keep the fires lit
And I will be right next to you

Engine driver’s headed north up to Pleasant Stream
Keep me in your heart for a while
These wheels keep turnin’ but they’re runnin’ out of steam
Keep me in your heart for a while

Keep me in your heart for a while

Keep me in your heart for a while

Keep me in your heart for a while

Tommy Keene, from “Places That Are Gone”

Because, these are places that are gone
Now we can go on and on
Back before you knew me well
I was trapped inside a shell …

Midnight Oil, from “Beds Are Burning”

Out where the river broke
The bloodwood and the desert oak
Holden wrecks and boiling diesels
Steam in forty five degrees
The time has come
To say fair’s fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share
The time has come
A fact’s a fact
It belongs to them
Let’s give it back …

Suzanne Vega, on her biggest disappointment

“How little money really changes things. It buys doctors but not health, clothes but not taste, makeup but not beauty. When I was young and didn’t have anything, I imagined money had more power.”

Richard Thompson, from “King of Bohemia”

Did your dreams die young
Were they too hard won
Did you reach too high and fall
And there is no rest
For the ones God blessed
And he blessed you best of all
Your eyes seem from a different face
They’ve seen that much that soon …

The Jam, from “Standards”

Oh we make the standards and we make the rules
And if you don’t abide by them you must be a fool
We have the power to control the whole land
You never must question our motives or plans –
‘Cause we’ll outlaw your voices, do anything we want
We’ve nothing to fear from the nation
We’ll throw you out of your houses if you get too much
If we have to we’ll destroy your generation …
