Creeper – Winona Forever (Eternity, In Your Arms Album)

[Verse 1]
In the alley, your eyes like valleys
Like gallows I hang from at night
I wrote you letters but never felt better
I buried myself in the void

[Pre-Chorus]
Because yeah, I’ve been drinking
And you know that I’ve been thinking of you so
I know I’m a wreck all the time

[Chorus]
But maybe I could be your boy
And do all of the things that you want to do
You could be my Winona
And I could get your name in a heart tattoo on my arm
Late nights are doing me harm

[Verse 2]
As you’re leaving I’m barely breathing
I’m keeping it all to myself
The club is empty, my head’s full of concrete
And I’d rather be someplace else

[Pre-Chorus]
Because yeah, I’ve been drinking
And you know that I’ve been thinking of you so
I know I’m a wreck all the time

[Chorus]
But maybe I could be your boy
And do all of the things that you want to do
You could be my Winona
And I could get your name in a heart tattoo on my arm
These late nights are doing me harm

[Bridge]
And it’s breaking me to see you so happy
I just want the worst for you
So selfish and typical of me to sit and sink with you
And it’s breaking me to see you so happy
I just want the worst for you
So selfish and typical of me to sit and sink with you
And it’s breaking me to see you so happy
I just want the worst for you
So selfish and typical of me to sit and sink with you
To sit and sink with you
(When dying stars shine for the last time
You are so beautiful and doomed
When dying stars shine for the last time
You are so beautiful and doomed)

[Chorus]
But maybe I could be your boy
And do all of the things that you want to do
You could be my Winona
And I could get your name in a heart tattoo on my arm
But maybe I could be your boy
And do all of the things that you want to do
You could be my Winona
And I could get your name in a heart tattoo on my arm
These late nights are doing me harm

Creeper – I Choose To Live (Eternity, In Your Arms Album)

[Verse 1]
They tore a hole right through my soul
I could have hid it years ago
Always assumed that it’d be a phase
I should have this all worked out at my age

[Pre-Chorus]
Some days I feel like crying, and I know you feel that too
But life don’t seem as dark when I sing with you, with you

[Chorus]
Oh, oh, oh, I choose to live
Oh, oh, oh, I choose to live

[Verse 2]
Young enough to still have a heart
Old enough to fall apart
And now we’re drinking in the park
In our twenties, in our aging skin at dark

[Pre-Chorus]
Some days I feel like crying, and I know you feel it too
But life don’t seem as dark when I sing with you, with you

[ Chorus]
Oh, oh, oh, I choose to live
Oh, oh, oh, I choose to live

[Pre-Chorus]
Some days I feel like crying, and I know you feel that too
But life don’t seem as dark when I sing with you, with you

[Chorus]
Oh, oh, oh, I choose to live
Oh, oh, oh, I choose to live

Milky Chance – Blossom (Blossom Album)

‘Cause I’m tired of all this talking
‘Cause everything you hear is empty words
But who am I, oh to say this
‘Cause everything you hear is just words, yeah
You have to trust in someone, trust in someone, trust in someone
‘Cause the truth is
‘Cause all I need, is to see you blossom out, blossom out, blossom out
And all I feel, is that I need you to blossom out, blossom out, blossom out
And all I need, is to see you blossom out, blossom out, blossom out
And all I feel, is that I need you to blossom out, blossom out, blossom out
And I’m tired of constant sorrow
‘Cause everything you get, is just worse
So what’s the point of going somewhere
When everyone you see is just nothing but confused
You have to trust in someone, trust in someone, trust in someone
‘Cause the truth is
‘Cause all I need, is to see you blossom out, blossom out, blossom out
And all I feel, is that I need you to blossom out, blossom out, blossom out
And all I need, is to see you blossom out, blossom out, blossom out
And all I feel, is that I need you to blossom out, blossom out, blossom out
‘Cause all I need, is to see you blossom out blossom out blossom out
And all I feel, is that I need you to blossom out, blossom out, blossom out
To blossom out, blossom out, blossom out
To blossom out, blossom out, blossom out

Milky Chance – Ego (Blossom Album)

Ego, see your ego
Ego, see your ego, oh, oh
And I’m missing my miss of roses
Holding my head high up and
My head high up and
I know that she is stronger
‘Cause she can break the silence, break the silence
So meet me by sea, you see it’s ours
And our place to be somewhere else
Gold shimmering sand is making me thinking of her
Thinking of her
But I am at Half Moon Bay
It’s just too far away
Just too far away
Gold shimmering sand is making me thinking of her
Thinking of her
But I am at Half Moon Bay
It’s just too far away
Just too far away
Ego, see your ego
Ego, see your ego
Ego, see your ego
Ego, see your ego
When I’m seeing my miss of roses
The world is turning slower
Turning slower
And I guess that she’s the strongest
That I have ever seen yet
Ever seen yet
And all along the way she’ll need our love
Got to take care of her now
Care of her now
So meet us by the sea, you see it’s ours
And our place to be somewhere else
Gold shimmering sand is making me thinking of her
Thinking of her
But I am at Half Moon Bay
It’s just too far away
Just too far away
Gold shimmering sand is making me thinking of her
Thinking of her
But I am at Half Moon Bay
It’s just too far away
Just too far away
Ego, see your ego
Ego, see your ego
Ego, see your ego
Ego, see your ego
Just too far away
Ego, see your ego
Ego, see your ego
Just too far away
Ego, see your ego
Ego, see your ego

Milky Chance – Firebird (Blossom Album)

There’s maybe some but none like you
We’ll be understood ’cause you’re the truth
Give me a few more off to do
Colour is conquering the love for you
I keep my eyes wide open so I
Can see there’s a rain drop falling away
But if your words get suddenly blurred
You remember that the truth is always worth seeing
You’re like a firebird in the sky
Shining for a challenger in the night
Just like a firebird is your heart
Keeps me warm and anchoring in the stars
You’re like a firebird
You’re like a firebird
Courageous wings make things go far
Lingering solitude can rip them off
So let the wind cross your ash thoughts
Giving you the strength to carry on
I keep my eyes wide open so I
Can see if there’s a rain drop falling away
But if your words get suddenly blurred
You remember that the truth is always worth seeing
You’re like a firebird in the sky
Shining for a challenger in the night
Just like a firebird is your heart
Keeps me warm and anchoring in the stars
You’re like a firebird
You’re like a firebird
You’re like a firebird
You’re like a firebird
You’re like
You’re like
You’re like

Milky Chance – Doing Good (Blossom Album)

Calling you lovable
How are you feeling now?
Making it all above
Falling for you somehow
I can’t refuse you walking along the promenade
Wish I could leave you every time but all you say
‘Cause I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing so good
I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing so good
Calling you lovable
How are you feeling now?
Making it all above
Falling for you somehow
I can’t refuse you walking along the promenade
Wish I could leave you everytime but all you say
‘Cause I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing so good
I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing, I’m doing so good
Calling you lovable
How are you feeling now?
Making it all above
Falling for you somehow
I can’t refuse you walking along the promenade
Wish I could leave you everytime but all you say
I’m doing so good
I’m doing so good
I’m doing so good
I’m doing so good
I’m doing so good
I’m doing so good
I’m doing so good

Milky Chance – Clouds (Blossom Album)

[Verse 1]
You came up in my heart
Like the sun and the stars
Maybe I’ll be the moon
So we can shine pretty soon
Then we drift through the night
When it’s getting too cold
I notice you’ll be around
Living stories we’ve told

[Pre-Chorus]
There’s nothing ever out there but some gathering clouds
I just wanna take care of you my love
There’s nothing ever out there but some gathering clouds
I just wanna take care of you my love

[Chorus]
Of you my love
Of you my love
Of you my love
Of you my love

[Verse 2]
And then you’re stuck in my head
Like a radiant rose
Make me dreaming away
Feels like getting too close
Always want you to stay
Just don’t leave me alone
Many a time I was wrong, but your truth loving is strong

[Pre-Chorus]
There’s nothing ever out there but some gathering clouds
I just wanna take care of you my love
There’s nothing ever out there but some gathering clouds
I just wanna take care of you my love

[Chorus]
Of you my love
Of you my love
Of you my love
Of you my love
Of you my love
Of you my love
Of you my love
Of you my love

Milky Chance – Cold Blue Rain (Blossom Album)

Cold blue rain
I don’t wanna think about it
Same old place
Makes me wanna think about it
See your face
Remembering that I’m mad about you
So I embrace all the things that you do
I know that we’ll be forever
Forever together as one
Our hearts will share the same shelter
We share a place under the same sun
I know that we’ll be forever
Forever together as one
Our hearts will share the same shelter
We share a place under the same sun
My heart is running for your love
My heart is running for your love
My heart is running for your love
My heart
My heart is running for your love
My heart is running for your love
My heart is running for your love
Cold blue rain
Standing right in front of me
Same old place
That I will never want to leave
Feel your face
Knowing that I’m mad about you
So I embrace you
You make me feel like my dreams come true
I know that we’ll be forever
Forever together as one
Our hearts will share the same shelter
We share a place under the same sun
I know that we’ll be forever
Forever together as one
Our hearts will share the same shelter
We share a place under the same sun
My heart is running for your love
My heart is running for your love
My heart is running for your love
My heart
My heart is running for your love
My heart is running for your love
My heart is running for your love

Milky Chance – Stay (Blossom Album)

You are a fairy-tale
Don’t you wanna stay?
You are a fairy-tale
I hope that you don’t run away
We should run away
I can hear them tapping on the ground
Where do we wanna go?
I know an ambush where we won’t be found
And so we went to the place, honey
Listening to the all-night-singing-sweet-melodies-fairy trees
And there was no better place to be
And so we took off to the moon
And all the shining lights
In the night
You are a fairy-tale
Don’t you wanna stay?
You are a fairy-tale
I hope that you don’t run away
You are a fairy-tale
Don’t you wanna stay?
You are a fairy-tale
I hope that you don’t run away
You are a fairy-tale
Don’t you wanna stay?
You are a fairy-tale
I hope that you don’t run away
You are a fairy-tale
You are a fairy-tale
You are a fairy-tale
You are a fairy-tale
Hope you gonna stay
You are a fairy-tale
Hope you don’t run away

Milky Chance – Bad Things (Blossom Album)

Getting through to you
Is what I’m aiming for
Won’t you hear me now
Like you’ve done before
Are we going round in circles
Are we running out of time, are we
Are we losing something precious
Are we hanging onto something special
I think so
‘Cause when you’re conquering my day and night
Easing the pain inside
Got me loving all of the time
Keep the bad things out of my mind, out of my mind
Eyes get resting my skin
Undressing my every floor
Ooh will we sink or swim
We’re landed on an empty shore
Are we going round in circles
Are we running out of time, are we
Are we losing something precious
Are we hanging onto something special
I think so
‘Cause when you’re conquering my day and night
Easing the pain inside
Got me loving, all of the time
Keep the bad things out of my mind, out of my mind
I don’t mind wasting time
Let’s stop and smell the roses
I don’t mind wasting time
Let’s stop and smell the roses
Ooh, how I know the odds is that high
As ever need to hang me out to dry
Ooh help me please my hands are tired
Don’t have the courage just to tell you goodbye
‘Cause when you’re conquering my day and night
Easing, the pain inside
Got me loving, all of the time
Keep the bad things out of my mind (out of, out of my mind)
‘Cause when you’re conquering my day and night
Easing the pain inside
Got me loving, all of the time
Keep the bad things out of my mind, out of my mind
‘Cause when you’re conquering my day and night
Easing the pain inside
Got me loving, all of the time
Keep the bad things out of my mind, out of my mind
I don’t mind wasting time
Let’s stop and smell the roses
I don’t mind wasting time
Let’s stop and smell the roses

Blackberry Smoke – Up The Road lyrics

Lately I can tell
You’re getting pretty sick of me
To tell you the truth,
I’ve had about enough of me too
All this cussing and fighting
Who’s wrong and who’s right
It don’t mean a thing
It don’t mean a damn thing

‘Cause the grass ain’t always greener
Just like we’re always told
You may not have the winning hand
But you ain’t got to fold
And it just seems that much warmer
When you come in from the cold
‘Cause things ain’t always better
Up the road

People they’ll be talking,
Rest assured they always do
They got it off
Everything that we go through
Let’s give them all the fame
Tell them where they can go
What do they know
What in the hell do they know

‘Cause the grass ain’t always greener
Just like we’re always told
You may not have the winning hand
But you ain’t got to fold
And it just seems that much warmer
When you come in from the cold
‘Cause things ain’t always better
Up the road

Things ain’t always better up the road
Things ain’t always better up the road
Yeah

‘Cause the grass ain’t always greener
Just like we’re always told
You may not have the winning hand
But you ain’t got to fold
And it just seems that much warmer
When you come in from the cold
‘Cause things ain’t always better
Up the road

Things ain’t always better up the road
Things ain’t always better up the road
Things ain’t always better up the road
Things ain’t always better up the road

Jessie Ware – Say You Love Me lyrics

[Verse 1]
Say you love me to my face
I need it more than your embrace
Just say you want me, that’s all it takes
Heart’s getting torn from your mistakes

[Chorus]
‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If you don’t wanna try,
But all that I’ve been thinking of
Is maybe that you might
Baby it looks as though we’re running out of words to say
And love’s floating away

[Verse 2]
Just say you love me, just for today
And don’t give me time ’cause that’s not the same
Want to feel burning flames when you say my name
Want to feel passion flow into my bones
Like blood through my veins

[Chorus]
‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If you don’t wanna try,
But all that I’ve been thinking of
Is maybe that you might
Baby it looks as though we’re running out of words to say
And love’s floating away

[Bridge]
Won’t you stay?
Won’t you stay?
Slowly slowly you unfold me,
But do you know me at all?
Someone told me love controls everything
But only if you know

[Chorus]
‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
(No no no no)
If you don’t wanna try
But all that I’ve been thinking of
Is maybe that you might
(Mine mine)

[Chorus]
‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If you don’t wanna try
But all that I’ve been thinking of
Is maybe that you might

[Outro]
Baby it looks as though we’re running out of words to say
And love’s floating away
Won’t you stay?
Won’t you stay?

DanTDM – Never Ever Going To The Nether lyrics

[Verse 1]
Do you remember when we woke up
Already felt like I had enough
We hadn’t played survival in a month
Why don’t we try hard [what?!]
You set up the I.P. and then you say “come join me”
We found OBSIDIAN in like a day
Frickin’ good at surviving in this game
Built a portal the noises they aren’t COOL…

[Hook]
Oooooo OOH OOH OOH OOH!
We went to light it up last night but..
Oooooo OOH OOH OOH OOH
This time I’m scared of just walking through

[Chorus]
We! are never ever ever going to the nether! (2x)
I heard there were PIGMEN and lots of soulsand that slow you down
SO WE are never ever ever ever going to the nether!

[Verse 2]
Say, do you think they have Christmas in the nether?
You say I’m being stupid and let’s try… (not to die)
Going through the purple late at night
Making up EXCUSES all the time
There’s too many creepers out here just go through the damn thing!

[Hook]
Oooooo OOH OOH OOH OOH
We went to light it up last night But..
Oooooo OOH OOH OOH OOH
This time I’m scared of just walking through

[Chorus]
We! are never ever ever going to the nether! (2x)
I heard there were PIGMEN and lots of soulsand that slow you down
SO WE are never ever ever ever going to the nether

OOOOO OOH OOH OOH OOH (3x)

So We got to the other side of the portal
And it was just RUBBISH!
We pretty mush died strait away
THIS IS CRAP!

[Chorus]
We! are never ever ever going to the nether! (2x)
I heard there were PIGMEN and lots of soulsand that slow you down
SO WE are never ever ever ever going to the nether!
I! said never ever ever go to the nether

We! should have never ever ever gone to the nether
I hate the color PURPLE and the noises freak me OUT!
SO WE are never ever ever ever again going to the nether

Cup of tea anyone?
Oooooo OOH OOH OOH OOH(6x)

Threering – Can Anybody Hear Me? lyrics

Lifted up in this time, this place
Twisted in the dark embrace of now
But it’s so normal to be here with you

I never wanted to let this get so far from me
My only regret
The final nail to drive it home
What I thought was forever…

All trace of reason swept aside
If only I had just taken the time
As stories go we could change our minds
Instead of leaving it all up to reason

Can anybody hear me?
I need someone to set me free
From all the things I’ve said and done
And that should be enough
To feel that all has left you
Like screaming in a vacuum for all these years
Lost along the way to save us

The cracks we fill with fear and doubt
Lost within, left without
Am I wrong
Believing nothing else matters right now

I can’t escape the ghosts of the past
They’re haunting me
And that’s what’s holding me back
If anyone should know, it’s you
I won’t be taken for granted

All trace of reason swept aside
If only I had just taken the time
As stories go we could change our minds
Instead of leaving it all up to reason

Can anybody hear me?
I need someone to set me free
From all the things I’ve said and done
And that should be enough
To feel that all has left you
Like screaming in a vacuum for all these years
Lost along the way to save us

Some days I get so numb inside
Can I fix the wreckage left behind?
In the shadows, misery my bride
Do I care enough to waste my time?
Time is what we lost along the way

Memories fade and masquerade as truth to everyone
Memories fade and masquerade as truth to everyone
They fade away

Can anybody hear me?
I need someone to set me free
From all the things I’ve said and done
And that should be enough
To feel that all has left you
Like screaming in a vacuum for all these years
Lost along the way to save us

Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: I Don’t Know How To Love Him lyrics

Mary Magdalene:
I don’t know how to love him
What to do, how to move him
I’ve been changed yes really changed
In these past few days when I’ve seen myself
I seem like someone else

I don’t know how to take this
I don’t see why he moves me
He’s a man he’s just a man
And I’ve had so many men before
In very many ways he’s just one more

Should I bring him down? Should I scream and shout?
Should I speak of love? Let my feelings out?
I never thought I’d come to this
What’s it all about?

Don’t you think it’s rather funny
I should be in this position
I’m the one who’s always been
So calm, so cool, no lover’s fool
Running every show, he scares me so

I never thought I’d come to this
What’s it all about
Yet if he said he loved me, I’d be lost, I’d be frightened
I couldn’t cope, just couldn’t cope

I’d turn my head, I’d back away
I wouldn’t want to know
He scares me so, I want him so
I love him so

CROWD:
Hosanna
Hey Sanna Sanna Sanna Hosanna
Hey Sanna Hosanna
Hey JC, JC won’t you smile at me?
Sanna Hosanna
Hey Superstar

[Verse 1]
CAIAPHAS:
Tell the rabble to be quiet, we anticipate a riot.
This common crowd, is much too loud.
Tell the mob who sing your song that they are fools and they are wrong.
They are a curse. They should disperse.

CROWD:
Hosanna
Hey Sanna Sanna Sanna Hosanna
Hey Sanna Hosanna
Hey JC, JC you’re alright by me
Sanna Hosanna
Hey Superstar

[Verse 2]
JESUS:
Why waste your breath moaning at the crowd?
Nothing can be done to stop the shouting.
If every tongue were stilled
The noise would still continue.
The rocks and stone themselves would start to sing:

[Chorus]
CROWD AND JESUS:
Hosanna
Hey Sanna Sanna Sanna Hosanna
Hey Sanna Hosanna

CROWD (alone):
Hey JC, JC won’t you fight for me?
Sanna Hosanna Hey Superstar

[Verse 3]
JESUS:
Sing me your songs,
But not for me alone.
Sing out for yourselves,
For you are bless-ed.
There is not one of you
Who can not win the kingdom.
The slow, the suffering,
The quick, the dead.

[Chorus]
CROWD and JESUS:
Hosanna
Hey Sanna Sanna Sanna Hosanna
Hey Sanna Hosanna

CROWD (alone):
Hey JC, JC won’t you die for me?

Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: Heaven On Their Minds lyrics

My mind is clearer now
At last, all too well I can see
Where we all soon will be

If you strip away
The myth from the man
You will see where we all soon will be

Jesus, You’ve started to believe
The things they say of you
You really do believe
This talk of God is true

And all the good You’ve done
Will soon be swept away
You begun to matter more
Than the things You say

Listen, Jesus I don’t like what I see
All I ask is that You listen to me
And remember, I’ve been Your right hand man all along
You have set them all on fire
They think they’ve found the new Messiah
And they’ll hurt You when they find they’re wrong

I remember when this whole thing began
No talk of God then, we called You a man
And believe me, my admiration for You hasn’t died
But every word You say today, is twisted ’round some other way
And they’ll hurt You if they think You’ve lied

Nazareth’s your famous Son
Should have stayed a great unknown
Like His father carving wood
He’d have made good, tables, chairs and oaken chests
Would have suited Jesus best
He’d have caused nobody harm no one alarm

Listen Jesus, do You care for Your race?
Don’t You see we must keep in our place?
We are occupied, have You forgotten how put down we are?
I am frightened by the crowd for we are getting much too loud
And they’ll crush us if we go too far, if we go too far

Listen, Jesus to the warning I give
Please remember that I want us to live
But it’s sad to see our chances weakening with every hour

All Your followers are blind, too much heaven on their minds
It was beautiful but now it’s sour, yes it’s all gone sour
God Jesus, it’s all gone sour

Listen, Jesus to the warning I give
[Incomprehensible]
Come on, come on, listen to me
Won’t you listen to me?

Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: GETHSEMANE lyrics

Jesus:
I only want to say
If there is a way
Take this cup away from me
For I don’t want to taste its poison
Feel it burn me
I have changed

I’m not as sure, as when we started
Then, I was inspired
Now, I’m sad and tired
Listen, surely I’ve exceeded expectations
Tried for three years, seems like thirty
Could you ask as much from any other man?

But if I die
See the saga through and do the things you ask of me,
Let them hate me, hit me, hurt me, nail me to their tree
I’d want to know, I’d want to know, my God
I’d want to know, I’d want to know, my God
Want to see, I’d want to see, my God
Want to see, I’d want to see, my God

Why I should die
Would I be more noticed than I ever was before?
Would the things I’ve said and done matter any more?
I’d have to know, I’d have to know, my Lord
Have to know, I’d have to know, my Lord
Have to see, I’d have to see, my Lord
Have to see, I’d have to see, my Lord
If I die what will be my reward?
If I die what will be my reward?
Have to know, I’d have to know, my Lord
I’d have to know, I’d have to know, my Lord

Why should I die? Oh why should I die?
Can you show me now that I would not be killed in vain?
Show me just a little of your omnipresent brain
Show me there’s a reason for your wanting me to die
You’re far to keen and where and how, but not so hot on why

Alright, I’ll die!
Just watch me die!
See how I die!
Then I was inspired
Now, I’m sad and tired
After all, I’ve tried for three years, seems like ninety
Why then am I scared to finish what I started
What you started, I didn’t start it

God, thy will is hard
But you hold every card
I will drink your cup of poison
Nail me to your cross and break me
Bleed me, beat me
Kill me
Take me, now!
Before I change my mind

Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: DAMNED FOR ALL TIME lyrics

JUDAS:
Now if I help you, it matters that you see
These sordid kinda things are coming hard to me.
It’s taken me some time to work out what to do.
I weighed the whole thing out before I came to you.
I have no thought at all about my own reward.
I really didn’t come here of my own accord.
Just don’t say I’m …
Damned for all time.

I came because I had to; I’m the one who saw.
Jesus can’t control it like he did before.
And furthermore I know that Jesus thinks so too.
Jesus wouldn’t mind that I was here with you.
I have no thought at all about my own reward.
I really didn’t come here of my own accord.
Just don’t say I’m …
Damned for all time.

Annas, you’re a friend, a worldly man and wise.
Caiaphas, my friend, I know you sympathise.
Why are we the prophets? Why are we the ones
Who see the sad solution – know what must be done?
I have no thought at all about my own reward.
I really didn’t come here of my own accord.
Just don’t say I’m
Damned for all time.

Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: COULD WE START AGAIN, PLEASE? lyrics

[Verse 1]
Mary:
I’ve been living to see you
Dying to see you, but it shouldn’t be like this
This was unexpected, what do I do now?
Could we start again please?

[Verse 2]
I’ve been very hopeful, so far
Now for the first time I think we’re going wrong
Hurry up and tell me this is just a dream
Oh could we start again please?

[Pre-Chorus]
Peter:
I think you’ve made your point now
You’ve even gone a bit too far to get the message home
Before it gets too frightening, we ought to call a halt
So could we start again please?

[Chorus]
All:
I’ve been living to see you
Dying to see you, but it shouldn’t be like this
This was unexpected, what do I do now?
Could we start again please?

I think you’ve made your point now
You’ve even gone a bit too far to get the message home
Before it gets too frightening, we ought to call a halt
So could we start again please?

[Outro]
Mary:
Could we start again please?
Could we start again?

Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: Blood Money lyrics

ANNAS:
Cut the protesting, forget the excuses.
We want information. Get up of the floor.

CAIAPHAS:
We have the papers we need to arrest him.
You know his movements. We know the law.

ANNAS:
Your help in this matter won’t go unrewarded.

CAIAPHAS:
We’ll pay you in silver, cash on the nail.
We just need to know where the soldiers can find him.

ANNAS:
With no crowd around him.

CAIAPHAS:
Then we can’t fail.

JUDAS:
I don’t want your blood money!

CAIAPHAS:
Oh, that doesn’t matter, our expenses are good.

JUDAS:
I don’t need your blood money!

ANNAS:
But you might as well take it. We think that you should.

CAIAPHAS:
Think of the things you could do with that money,
Choose any charity – give to the poor.
We’ve noted your motives.
We’ve noted your feelings.
This isn’t blood money – it’s a …

ANNAS:
A fee.

CAIAPHAS:
A fee nothing more.

JUDAS:
On Thursday night you’ll find him where you want him.
Far from the crowds, in the Garden of Gethsemane.

CHOIR:
Well done Judas. Good old Judas.

Put away your sword
Don’t you know that it’s all over
It was nice but now it’s gone
Why are you obsessed with fighting?
Stick to fishing from now on

CROWD:
Tell me Christ how you feel tonight.
Do you plan to put up a fight?
Do you feel that you’ve had the breaks?
What would you say were your big mistakes?
Do you think that you may retire?
Did you think you would get much higher?
How do you view your coming trial?
Have your men proved it all worth while?

Come with us to see Caiaphas.
You’ll just love the High Priest’s house.
You’ll just love seeing Caiaphas.
You’ll just die in the High Priest’s house.

You say you’re the Son of God in all your handouts,
Well, is it true?

That’s what you say, you say that I am.

There you have it gentlemen.
What more evidence do we need?

Stay a while and you’ll see him bleed!

Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: Superstar lyrics

[Verse 1]
Judas:
Mm, everytime I look at you
I don’t understand
Why you let the things you did
Get so out of hand
You’d have managed better
If you’d had it planned
Now why’d you choose such a backwards time
And such and strange land

[Verse 2]
If you’d come today
You could have reached a whole nation
Israel in 4 BC
Had no mass communication

[Pre-Chorus]
(Don’t you get me wrong) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong, now) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong, now) Don’t you get me wrong

(Only want to know) Only want to know
(Only want to know, now) Only want to know
(Only want to know) Only want to know
(Only want to know, now) I only want to know

[Chorus]
Choir:
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you, what have you sacrificed
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you, what have you sacrificed
Jesus Christ, Superstar
Do you think you’re what they say you are?
Jesus Christ, Superstar
Do you think you’re what they say you are?

[Verse 3]
Judas:
Tell me what you think about your friends at the top
Now who’d you think, besides yourself
Was the pick of the crop?
Buddha was he where it’s at?
Is he where you are?
Could Mohammed move a mountain or was that just PR?
Did you mean to die like that
Was that a mistake or
Did you know your messy death would be a record breaker?

[Pre-Chorus]
(Don’t you get me wrong) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong, now) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong, now) Don’t you get me wrong

(Only want to know) Only want to know
(Only want to know, now) Only want to know
(Only want to know) Only want to know
(Only want to know, now) I only want to know

[Chorus]

Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you, what have you sacrificed

Who are you, what have you sacrificed

Do you think you’re what they say you are?

Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: Pilate’s Dream lyrics

Pilate:
I dreamed I met a Galilean
A most amazing man
He had that look you very rarely find
The haunting, hunted kind

I asked him to say what had happened
How it all began?
I asked again, he never said a word
As if he hadn’t heard

And next, the room was full of
Wild and angry men
They seemed to hate this man
They fell on him, and then disappeared again

Then I saw thousands of millions
Crying for this man
And then I heard them mentioning my name
And leaving me the blame

Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: Pilate And Christ lyrics

PILATE:
Who is this broken man?
Cluttering up my hallway
Who is this unfortunate?

GUARDS:
Someone, Christ King of the Jews

PILATE:
Oh so this is Jesus Christ
I am really quite surprised
You look so small
Not a king at all
We all know that you are news
But are you king
King of the Jews?

JESUS:
That’s what you say

PILATE:
What do you mean by that
That is not an answer
You’re deep in trouble friend
Someone Christ King of the Jews
How can someone in your state
Be so cool about his fate?
An amazing thing
This silent King

Since you come from Galilee
Then you need not come to me
You’re Herod’s race
You’re Herod’s case

CROWD:
Ho sanna, hey sanna sanna sanna hosanna
Heysanna hosanna
Hey JC, JC please explain to me
You had everything where is it now

I think I’ve seen you somewhere
I remember,
You were with that man
They took away
I recognize your face

PETER:
You’ve got the wrong man lady
I don’t know him
And I wasn’t where he was tonight
Never near the place

SOLDIER:
That’s strange
For I am sure I saw you with him
You were right by his side
And yet you deny

PETER:
I tell you I was never ever with him

OLD MAN:
But I saw you too
He looked just like you

PETER:
I don’t know him

MARY:
Peter, don’t you know
What you have said
You’ve gone and cut him dead

I had to do it don’t you see
Or else they’d go for me

It’s what he told us you would do
I wonder how he knew

Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: KING HEROD’S SONG lyrics

King Herod:
Jesus, I am overjoyed
To meet You face to face
You’ve been getting quite a name
All around the place

Healing cripples
Raising from the dead
And now I understand You’re God
At least that’s what You’ve said

So You are the Christ
You’re the great Jesus Christ
Prove to me that You’re divine
Change my water into wine

That’s all You need do
And I’ll know it’s all true
C’mon King of the Jews

Jesus, You just won’t believe
The hit You’ve made around here
You are all we talk about
The wonder of the year

Oh, what a pity
If it’s all a lie
Still I’m sure that You can rock
The cynics if You try

So if You are the Christ
You’re the great Jesus Christ
Prove to me that You’re no fool
Walk across my swimming pool

If You do that for me
Then I’ll let You go free
C’mon, King of the Jews

I only ask things I’d ask any superstar
What is it that You have got
That puts You where You are?

I am waiting, yes, I’m a captive fan
I’m dying to be shown
That You are not just any man

So if You are the Christ
Yes, the great Jesus Christ
Feed my household with this bread

You can do it on Your head
Or has something gone wrong?
Why do You take so long?
Come on, King of the Jews

Hey, aren’t You scared of me, Christ?
Mr. Wonderful Christ
You’re a joke, You’re not the Lord
You are nothing but a fraud

Take Him away
He’s got nothing to say
Get out, You King of the, get out
Get out, You King of the Jews
Get out, You King of the Jews
Get out of my life

Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: Judas’ Death lyrics

Judas:
My God, I saw him
He looked three-quarters dead
And he was so bad
I had to turn my head
You beat him so hard
That he was bent and lame
And I know who everybody’s
Going to blame
I don’t believe he knows
I acted for our good
I’d save him all the suffering
If I could
Don’t believe our good
Save him if I could

Annas:
Cut the confessions
Forget the excuses
I don’t understand why
You’re filled with remorse
All that you’ve said
Has come true with a vengeance
The mob has turned against him
You’ve backed the right horse

Caiaphas:
What you have done
Will be the saving of Israel
You’ll be remembered forever for this
And not only that
You’ve been paid for your efforts
Pretty good wages
For one little kiss

Judas:
Christ!
I know you can’t hear me
But I only did what you wanted me to
Christ!
I’d sell out the nation
For I have been saddled
With the murder of you
I have been spattered
With innocent blood
I should be dragged
Through the slime and the mud
I have been spattered
With innocent blood
I should be dragged
Through the slime and the slime and the slime and the mud

I don’t know how to love him
I don’t know why he moves me
He’s a man
He’s just a man
He’s not a King
He’s just the same
As anyone I know
He scares me so
When he’s cold and dead
Will he let me be?
Does he love?
Does he love me too?
Does he care for me?
Oh, God

My mind is in darkness now
Oh my God I am sick
I’ve been used
And you knew
All the time
God I’ll never know
Why you chose me for your crime
Your foul bloody crime
You, you have murdered me
You have murdered me
Murdered me
Murdered me
Murdered me

Crowd/choir:
So long, Judas poor old Judas
So long, Judas poor old Judas
So long, Judas poor old Judas

Nothing More – This Is The Time (Ballast) lyrics

When did we become these sinking stones?
When did we build this broken home?
Holding each other like ransom notes,
Dropping our hearts to grip our brother’s throats.

You can’t see because you don’t know,
You’re caught below, beneath your own shadow.
Stuck inside, half alive,
Do you ever stop to ask yourself why?
Close your mind, identify,
Do you feel, do you feel?
Do you call this a life?
All you waited for
Drowning just to keep score.

We always start with good intentions,
But lose ourselves along the way.

This is the time that we let it go,
These are the words that will take us home.
Singing the song that’s inside us all,
If we don’t open our eyes we’re walking blind.

Anchored in anger, we exile ourselves,
Bitter blood builds our prison cell.
Darker water now fills our lungs,
The depths of our heart have blacked the sun.

You can’t see because you don’t know,
You’re caught below, beneath your own shadow.
Stuck inside, half alive,
Do you ever stop to ask yourself why?
Close your mind, identify,
Do you feel, do you feel?
Do you call this a life?
All you waited for
Drowning just to keep score.

We always start with good intentions,
But lose ourselves along the way.

This is the time that we let it go,
These are the words that will take us home.
Singing the song that’s inside us all,
If we don’t open our eyes we’re walking blind.

Naked we come, naked we leave,
Fools we are, to hold tightly.
We are free, we are free,
We are the jail, we are the key.

This is the time that we let it go,
Yeah, these are the words that will take us home.
Singing the song that’s inside us all,
If we just open our eyes.
(If we just open our eyes)

This is the time that we let it go,
This is the pain we are forced to know.
Singing the song that’s inside,
Inside us all, inside us all!

Walking blind.
