Song Lyrics for a wedding reading (1 Viewer)

Atomic Punk

I am officiating a wedding for two very good friends in two weeks (my first). I’m almost done most of the ceremony but really wanted to do a reading that was not Corinthians. They are avid music fans, so I was hoping to read some song lyrics. I’ve been googling and there are some interesting ideas but nothing is jumping out at me, so I thought I would once again reach out to the wisdom of FBG.

Favourite artists that cross over both of them include Journey, Billy Joel, Streetheart (local Winnipeg band), Asia, Queen.

Whatcha got?

We both lie silently still

In the dead of the night

Although we both lie close together

We feel miles apart inside

Was it something I said or something I did

Did the words not come out right

Though I tried not to hurt you

Though I tried

But I guess that's why they say

Every rose has its thorn

Just like every night has its dawn

Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song

Every rose has its thorn

Yeah it does

Well, we're living here in Allentown
And they're closing all the factories down
Out in Bethlehem, they're killing time
Filling out forms, standing in line

Well, our fathers fought the Second World War
Spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore
Met our mothers at the USO
Asked them to dance, danced with them slow

And we're living here in Allentown
But the restlessness was handed down
And it's getting very hard to stay

Can anybody find me somebody to love?

Ooh, each morning I get up I die a little
Can barely stand on my feet
(Take a look at yourself) Take a look in the mirror and cry (and cry)
Lord, what you're doing to me? (Yeah, yeah)
I have spent all my years in believing you
But I just can't get no relief, Lord
Somebody (somebody), ooh, somebody (somebody)
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

Yeah

I work hard (he works hard) every day of my life
I work 'til I ache my bones
At the end (at the end of the day)
I take home my hard earned pay (goes home)
All on my own (goes home on his own)
I get down (down) on my knees (knees)
And I start to pray (praise the Lord)
'Til the tears run down from my eyes
Lord, somebody (somebody), ooh, somebody
(Please) can anybody find me somebody to love?

Every day (every day), I try and I try and I try
But everybody wants to put me down
They say I'm going crazy
They say I got a lot of water in my brain
I got no common sense
(He's got) I got nobody left to believe in
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Ooh, Lord
Ooh, somebody, ooh (somebody)
Anybody find me somebody to love?
(Can anybody find me someone to love)

Got no feel, I got no rhythm
I just keep losing my beat (you just keep losing and losing)
I'm OK, I'm alright (he's alright, he's alright)
I ain't gonna face no defeat (yeah, yeah)
I just gotta get out of this prison cell
One day (someday) I'm gonna be free, Lord

Find me somebody to love
Find me somebody to love
Find me somebody to love
Find me somebody to love
Find me somebody to love (find me)
Find me somebody to love (find me, find)
Find me somebody to love
Find me somebody to love, love, love (ooh, find me, find me)
Find me somebody to love (somebody to love)
Find me somebody to love (ooh)
Somebody, somebody, somebody, somebody
Somebody find me
Somebody find me somebody to love
Can anybody find me somebody to love?
(Find me somebody to love)
Ooh
(Find me somebody to love)
Find me somebody, somebody (find me)
Somebody, somebody to love (somebody to love)
Find me, find me, find me, find me, find me
Ooh, somebody to love (find me somebody to love)
Ooh (find me somebody to love)
Find me, find me, find me somebody to love
Anybody, anywhere (find me)
Anybody, find me somebody to love, love, love, love, love (somebody to love)
Find me, find me, find me love

I knew my babe when we were 18, roommates and strictly platonic friends. We were married years later and we're working on 30 hitched. 

SEAL SEALED THE DEAL:

There used to be a greying tower alone on the sea.

You became the light on the dark side of me.

Love remained a drug that's the high and not the pill.

But did you know,

That when it snows,

My eyes become large and,

The light that you shine can be seen.

Baby,

I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey.

Ooh,

The more I get of you

Ooh

Stranger it feels, yeah.

And now that your rose is is in bloom.

A light hits the gloom on the grey.

There is so much a man can tell you,

So much he can say.

there's so much inside.

You remain,

you.......

My power, my pleasure, my pain, baby

To me you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny.. yeah.

Won't you tell me is that healthy, baby?

But did you know,

That when it snows,

My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.

Baby,

I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey.

Been kissed from a rose on the grey.

Ooh, the more I get of you

Stranger it feels, yeah

stranger it feels, yeah.

Now that your rose is in bloom.

A light hits the gloom on the grey,

I've been kissed by a rose on the grey,

I've been kissed by a rose

Been kissed by a rose on the grey.

I've been kissed by a rose on the grey,

And if I should fall, at all

I've been kissed by a rose

Been kissed by a rose on the grey.

There is so much a man can tell you,

So much he can say.

there's so much inside.

You remain

you.......

My power, my pleasure, my pain.

To me you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny, yeah

Won't you tell me is that healthy, baby.

But did you know,

That when it snows,

My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.

Baby,

I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey.

Ooh, the more I get of you

Stranger it feels, yeah

stranger it feels.

Now that your rose is in bloom,

A light hits the gloom on the grey.

Yes I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey

Ooh, the more I get of you

Stranger it feels, yeah

stranger it feels. yeah.

And now that your rose is in bloom

A light hits the gloom on the grey

Now that your rose is in bloom,

A light hits the gloom on the grey.

Van Morrison - Sweet Thing 

Anything really off of Astral Weeks except for the death laments. 

And I will stroll the merry way and jump the hedges first
And I will drink the clear clean water for to quench my thirst
And I shall watch the ferry-boats, and they'll get high
On a bluer ocean against tomorrow's sky

And I will never grow so old again
And I will walk and talk
In gardens all wet with rain

[Chorus 1]
Oh, sweet thing, sweet thing
Sweet thing
Oh my, my, my, my, my sweet thing


[Verse 2]
And I shall drive my chariot down your streets and cry
Hey, it's me, I'm dynamite, and I don't know why
And you shall take me strongly in your arms again
And I will not remember that I ever felt the pain

We shall walk and talk in gardens all misty wet
All misty wet with rain down
And I will never, never, never grow so old again

[Chorus 2]
Oh, you sweet thing
Oh, you sweet thing, sweet thing
My, my, my, my, my

[Verse 3]
And I will raise my hand up into the night time sky
And count the stars that's shining in your eye
And just to dig it all an' not to wonder, that's just fine
And I'll be satisfied not to read in between the lines

And I will walk and talk in gardens all wet with rain
And I will never, ever, ever, ever grow so old again

[Outro]
Oh sweet thing
Oh sugar-baby
Oh sweet thing
Sugar-baby, sugar-baby, sugar-baby
With your champagne eyes
And your saint-like smile

Their band choices lead me to believe they might appreciate Bruce, so...

We said we'd walk together baby come what may
That come the twilight should we lose our way
If as we're walking a hand should slip free
I'll wait for you
And should I fall behind
Wait for me


We swore we'd travel darlin' side by side
We'd help each other stay in stride
But each lover's steps fall so differently
But I'll wait for you
And if I should fall behind
Wait for me


Now everyone dreams of a love lasting and true
But you and I know what this world can do
So let's make our steps clear that the other may see
And I'll wait for you
If I should fall behind
Wait for me


Now there's a beautiful river in the valley ahead
There 'neath the oak's bough soon we will be wed
Should we lose each other in the shadow of the evening trees
I'll wait for you
And should I fall behind
Wait for me
Darlin' I'll wait for you
Should I fall behind
Wait for me

You say they both like Billy Joel.  Why not go with that?

You're My Home

When you look into my eyes
And you see the crazy gypsy in my soul
It always comes as a surprise
When I feel my withered roots begin to grow

Well, I never had a place that I could call my very own
But that's all right, my love, 'cause you're my home

When you touch my weary head
And you tell me everything will be all right
You say, "Use my body for your bed"
"And my love will keep you warm throughout the night"

Well, I'll never be a stranger and I'll never be alone
Wherever we're together, that's my home

Home can be the Pennsylvania Turnpike
Indiana's early morning dew
High up in the hills of California
Home is just another word for you

Well, I never had a place that I could call my very own
But that's all right, my love, 'cause you're my home

If I travel all my life
And I never get to stop and settle down
Long as I have you by my side
And there's a roof above and good walls all around

You're my castle, you're my cabin and my instant pleasure dome
I need you in my house 'cause you're my home
You're my home

You're my home

Alternately, there's another Winnipeg band, The Weakerthans 

How I don't know how to sing
I can barely play this thing
But you never seem to mind
And you tell me to #### off
When I need somebody to


How you make me laugh so hard
How whole years refuse to stay
Where we told them to, bad dog
Locked up whining in a word
Or a misplaced souvenir


How the past chews on your shoes
And these memories lick my ear


I know you might roll your eyes at this
But I'm so glad that you exist


How we waste our precious time
Marching in the picket lines
That surround those striking hearts
And the time is never now
And we know who we should love
But we're never certain how


I know you might roll your eyes at this
But I'm so glad that you exist


I know you might roll your eyes at this
But I'm so glad that you exist


I know you might roll your eyes at this
But I'm so glad that you exist

Maybe not relevant to the music tastes but I like this one from Vance Joy "Fire and the Flood" as well. Heading it always makes me happily think of my wife. 

You're the fire and the flood
And I'll always feel you in my blood
Everything is fine
When your hand is resting next to mine
You're the fire and the flood


Since we met I feel a lightness in my step
You're miles away but I still feel you
Anywhere I go there you are (anywhere)

Late at night when you can't fall asleep
I'll be lying right beside you counting sheep
Anywhere I go there you are (anywhere)

"Love And Happiness"  Written by Emmylou Harris    Sung by Emmylou and Mark Knopfler

Here's a wishing well
Here's a penny for
Any thought it is
That makes you smile
Every diamond dream
Everything that brings
Love and happiness
To your life

Here's a rabbit's foot
Take it when you go
So you'll always know
You're safe from harm
Wear your ruby shoes
When you're far away
So you'll always stay
Home in your heart

You will always have a lucky star
That shines because of what you are
Even in the deepest dark
Because your aim is true
And if I could only have one wish
Darling, then it would be this
Love and happiness for you

Here's a spinning wheel
Use it once you've learned
There's a way to turn
The straw to gold
Here's a rosary
Count on every bead
With a prayer to keep
The hope you hold

You will always have a lucky star
That shines because of what you are
Even in the deepest dark
Because your aim is true
And if I could only have one wish
Darling, then it would be this
Love and happiness for you
And if I could only have one wish
Darling, then it would be this
Love and happiness for yo
u

This is probably not what you’re looking for this specific couple…but who knows, maybe it will help someone else.

From our wedding 10 days ago (6/25/22)

Order of Service    
Processional to “Pachelbel’s Canon in D - cello & piano arrangement” 
Pastoral welcome - meaning of marriage  
Scripture reading Colossians 3:12-17
How Great Thou Art” traditional hymn.    
prayer
Declarations of Consent (bride & groom)
Spurgeon sermon - reading on The Relationship of Marriage (2-3 minute portion - not 48:47 lol)    
Homily by Pastor
Way Maker” contemporary worship song
Wedding Vows
Exchange of Rings
Blessing
Pronouncement
Recessional to the song “The Blessing


“bolded” songs were corporate / we had worship leaders but all the guests sang

these were very moving experiences - heard from several people the pollen count must have been super high

First Dance - The Story by Brandi Carlisle

[Verse 1]
All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am

[Chorus]
But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to, it's true
I was made for you

 [Verse 2]
I climbed across the mountaintops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But baby, I broke them all for you

[Chorus]
Oh, because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks, you do
I was made for you

[Instrumental Break]

[Verse 3]
You see the smile that's on my mouth
It's hiding the words that don't come out
And all of our friends who think that I'm blessed
They don't know my head is a mess

[Chorus]
No, they don't know who I really am
And they don't know what I've been through like you do
And I was made for you

[Breakdown]
All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am


[Chorus]
Oh, but these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to, it's true
I was made for you

[Outro]
Oh yeah, well, it's true
That I was made for you

*****************

I think the most important thing - and you’ll only know by asking them directly - is picking something that both reflects their values and has personal meaningful (not necessarily already personal and meaningful  but aligns with their shared experience.) 

It’s their wedding (not yours) so they’re really the opinion that matters the most. (duh)

****************

Deviates from your OP request but have you looked at The Prophet?

Thanks @BobbyLayne and congratulations to you.

As for the deviation, no worries there. I welcome all the help and suggestions I can get. I have not looked at the Prophet but will do so in the morning with some fresh eyes. Thanks again!

Some great suggestions in here ... feel free to keep firing away.

The catalogue from the bands I listed doesn’t lend itself well to a wedding reading but I’ll check all of these out in the morn.

Thanks all.

I was jamming this earlier:

"Oh, God of Earth and Altar
Bow down and hear our cry
Our earthly rulers falter
Our people drift and die
The walls of gold entomb us
The swords of scorn divide
Take not thy thunder from us
Take away our pride"

I may be stoned.

Perhaps Love by John Denver

Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don't know what to do
The memory of love will see you through

Oh, love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel
For some a way of living
For some a way to feel
And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say they don't know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of change
Like a fire when it's cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you
He was always a poet before all else.

Seems like this would be a song and lyrics familiar to most. 
 

Thank You by Led Zeppelin

If the sun refused to shine
I would still be loving you
When mountains crumble to the sea
There would still be you and me


Kind woman, I give you my all
Kind woman, nothing more


Little drops of rain
Whisper of the pain
Tears of loves lost in the days gone by
Our love is strong
With you there is no wrong
Together we shall go until we die. My, my, my


Inspiration's what you are to me
Inspiration, look and see


And so today, my world it smiles
Your hand in mine, we walk the miles
Thanks to you it will be done
For you to me are the only one


Happiness, no more be sad
Happiness…. I’m glad

Nothing Else Matters by Metallica

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters
Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters


 

Chaz McNulty

Footballguy
The first verse and chorus are really nice in 'I Melt with You'.

Moving forward using all my breath
Making love to you was never second best
I saw the world thrashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace

I'll stop the world and melt with you
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
There's nothing you and I won't do
I'll stop the world and melt with you

I think it is a little tricky because most of these songs are 1st person POV and that's kind of awkward  for an official to read about another couple. I have another Van Morrison recommendation, not sure if they are fans though. It's also religious still- not sure if that is a bonus or not. 

These are the Days

These are the days of the endless summer
These are the days, the time is now
There is no past, there's only future
There's only here, there's only now


Oh, your smiling face, your gracious presence
While the fires of spring are kindling bright
Oh, the radiant heart and the song of glory
Crying freedom in the night


These are the days by the sparkling river
His timely grace and our treasured find
This is the love of the one magician
Turned the water into wine, oh yeah


These are days of the endless dancing
And the long walks on the summer night
These are the days of the true romancing
When I'm holding you, oh, so tight


These are the days by the sparkling river
And His timely grace and the treasured find
This is the love of the one great magician
And the the water turned into wine


These are the days now that we must savor
And we must enjoy as we can
These are the days that will last forever
You've got to hold them in your heart

Here you go. Always brings a tear to the eye. 

Lola

[Verse 1]
I met her in a club down in old Soho
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like Coca-Cola
C-O-L-A, Cola
She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said, "Lola"
L-O-L-A, Lola
Lo-Lo-Lo-Lo-Lola

[Chorus]
Well, I'm not the world's most physical guy
But when she squeezed me tight, she nearly broke my spine
Oh, my Lola
Lo-Lo-Lo-Lo-Lola
Well, I'm not dumb, but I can't understand
Why she walks like a woman and talks like a man
Oh, my Lola
Lo-Lo-Lo-Lo-Lola
Lo-Lo-Lo-Lo-Lola

[Post-Chorus]
Well, we drank champagne and danced all night
Under electric candlelight
She picked me up and sat me on her knee
She said, "Little boy, won't you come home with me?"

[Chorus]
Well, I'm not the world's most passionate guy
But when I looked in her eyes, well, I almost fell for my Lola
Lo-Lo-Lo-Lo-Lola
Lo-Lo-Lo-Lo-Lola

[Refrain]
Lola
Lo-Lo-Lo-Lo-Lola
Lo-Lo-Lo-Lo-Lola

[Bridge]
I pushed her away
I walked to the door
I fell to the floor
I got down on my knees
Well, I looked at her, and she at me

[Verse 2]
Well, that's the way that I want it to stay
And I always want it to be that way for my Lola
Lo-Lo-Lo-Lo-Lola
Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world
Except for Lola
Lo-Lo-Lo-Lo-Lola

Well, we're living here in Allentown
And they're closing all the factories down
Out in Bethlehem, they're killing time
Filling out forms, standing in line

Well, our fathers fought the Second World War
Spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore
Met our mothers at the USO
Asked them to dance, danced with them slow

And we're living here in Allentown
But the restlessness was handed down
And it's getting very hard to stay
I work in Allentown and can make some suggestions for wedding locations.   :thumbup:

This was at the top of my list but remembered it was the wedding song at his brothers wedding. I’m positive the bride would not be happy if I did a rerun on that particular gem.

Top 5 album for me and one that me and the Mrs. dance to regularly. Wasn’t much of a fan until it was mentioned somewhere here at FBGs. I’ll give it a listen. Was also thinking about Van’s Crazy Love as an option.

Let's Get It On

I've been really tryin', baby
Tryin' to hold back this feeling for so long
And if you feel like I feel, baby
Then, c'mon, oh, c'mon, whoa

Ah, baby, let's get it on
Let's love, baby

With so much to give
Understand me, sugar (ooh ooh)

Loving you, baby no no
And giving yourself to me can never be wrong

I threw this out (only half-jokingly) to use (a modified version with extended intro and then just one of the two choruses below) for our wedding reception walk in / intro music but the wife wasn't as into it... 

We’re in This Together - Nine Inch Nails

[Verse 1]
I've become impossible
Holding on to when
When everything seemed to matter more
The two of us (All used)
All used and beaten up
Watching fate
As it flows
Down the path
We have chose

[Chorus]
You and me
We're in this together now
None of them can stop us now
We will make it through somehow
You and me
If the world should break in two
Until the very end of me
Until the very end of you


[Verse 2]
Awake to the sound as they peel apart the skin
They pick and they pull, trying to get their fingers in
Well, they've got to kill what we found
Well, they've got to hate what they fear
Well, they've got to make it go away
Well, they've got to make it disappear
The farther I fall I'm beside you
As lost as I get I will find you
The deeper the wound I'm inside you
For ever and ever I am a part of

[Chorus]
You and me
We're in this together now
None of them can stop us now
We will make it through somehow
You and me
If the world should break in two
Until the very end of me
Until the very end of you

[Bridge]
All that we were is gone, we have to hold on
All that we were is gone, we have to hold on
When all our hope is gone, we have to hold on
All that we were is gone, but we can hold on

[Chorus]
You and me
We're in this together now
None of them can stop us now
We will make it through somehow
You and me
Even after everything
You're the queen and I'm the king
Nothing else means anything

Their band choices lead me to believe they might appreciate Bruce, so...

We said we'd walk together baby come what may
That come the twilight should we lose our way
If as we're walking a hand should slip free
I'll wait for you
And should I fall behind
Wait for me


We swore we'd travel darlin' side by side
We'd help each other stay in stride
But each lover's steps fall so differently
But I'll wait for you
And if I should fall behind
Wait for me


Now everyone dreams of a love lasting and true
But you and I know what this world can do
So let's make our steps clear that the other may see
And I'll wait for you
If I should fall behind
Wait for me


Now there's a beautiful river in the valley ahead
There 'neath the oak's bough soon we will be wed
Should we lose each other in the shadow of the evening trees
I'll wait for you
And should I fall behind
Wait for me
Darlin' I'll wait for you
Should I fall behind
Wait for me
Great pick and not one I’m familiar with but it just made my short list!

I think it is a little tricky because most of these songs are 1st person POV and that's kind of awkward  for an official to read about another couple. I have another Van Morrison recommendation, not sure if they are fans though. It's also religious still- not sure if that is a bonus or not.
This is one thing I have been most concerned about.

The groom is a classic rock guy through and through and the bride is more of a sappy romantic song gal, which is making this tougher than I thought. This one has some potential!

This is one that made my short list but it may be a little to hokey. I took out the first line so it doesn’t give away the song at the very start ...

If I could make days last foreverl
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty, except for the memory of how
They were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go through the time with

Nothing says romance like the Ramones:

Lovely lovely locket love
You could use a little of
Hang a chain around you
You're hangin' too
Hang on a little bit longer
Hang on you're a goner

Always the best.

Well, I know it's kind of late
I hope I didn't wake you
But what I gotta say can't wait
I know you'd understand

'Cause ev'ry time I tried to tell you
The words just came out wrong
So I'll have to say I love you in a song

Yeah, I know it's kind of strange
But ev'ry time I'm near you
I just run out of things to say
I know you'd understand

'Cause ev'ry time I tried to tell you
The words just came out wrong
So I'll have to say I love you in a song

'Cause ev'ry time the time was right
All the words just came out wrong
So I'll have to say I love you in a song

Yeah, I know it's kind of late
I hope I didn't wake you
But there's something that I just gotta say
I know you'd understand

'Cause ev'ry time I tried to tell you
The words just came out wrong
So I'll have to say I love you in a song

45 replies and no lyrics to White Wedding yet?  

Hey little sister, what have you done
Hey little sister, who's the only one
Hey little sister, who's your superman
Hey little sister, who's the one you want
Hey little sister, shotgun

It's a nice day to start again
It's a nice day for a white wedding
It's a nice day to start again

Hey little sister, who is it you're with
Hey little sister, what's your vice and wish
Hey little sister, shotgun (oh yeah)
Hey little sister, who's your superman
Hey little sister, shotgun

It's a nice day to start again
It's a nice day for a white wedding
It's a nice day to start again

Take me back home, yeah

Hey little sister, what have you done
Hey little sister, who's the only one
I've been away for so long (so long)
I've been away for so long (so long)
I let you go for so long

It's a nice day to start again
Come on, it's a nice day for a white wedding
It's a nice day to start again

There is nothin' fair in this world, baby
There is nothin' safe in this world
And there's nothin' sure in this world
And there's nothin' pure in this world
Look for something left in this world
Start again

Come on
It's a nice day for a white wedding
It's a nice day to start again
It's a nice day to start again
It's a nice day to start again

Well I've been walking the streets in the evenin'
Racin' through the human jungle at night
I'm so confused, my mind is indifferent
Hey - I'm so weak, won't somebody shut off that light?

Electricity runs through the video
And I watch it from this hole I call home
And all them stonies are dancin' to the radio
And I got the world callin' me up free tonight on the phone

Some girl who'll thrill me and then go away
(I need a lover that won't drive me crazy)
Some girl that knows the meaning of ah- 
Hey hit the highway!

Well I'm not wiped out by this poolroom life I'm livin'
I'm gonna quit this job, and go to school, and head back home
(head back home)
Now I'm not asking to be loved or be forgiven
Hey - I just can't face shakin' in this bedroom
One more night alone

Some girl that knows the meaning of ah- 
Hey hit the highway!

Some girl to thrill me and then go away
(I need a lover that won't drive me crazy)
Some girl that knows the meaning of ah- 
Hey hit the highway!
