What if I’d gone out that night
What if you’d turned left

In the Living Years (Mike & the Mechanics)

Every generation
Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations
Come beating on your door

I know that I’m a prisoner
To all my Father held so dear
I know that I’m a hostage
To all his hopes and fears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years Read more

Nothing compares to you (Sinead O’Connor)

It’s been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away

I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues
‘Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you Read more
