Here's the song I'm listening to right now...

 

 

The problem was
She had a little black book
And my name was written on every page
Well a girl's got to make ends meet
...
I was out of place and time
And over the hill
And out of my mind

 

Didn't see anyone else answer...  that's Jubilee Street - Nick Cave

Somebody's knocking at the door, somebody's ringing a bell,

Somebody's knocking at the door, somebody's ringing a bell,

Do me a favor, open the door............

This one should be pretty easy!    :)

OK.  This one won't be easy for a lot of you.

 

        Life
	Coast to coast
	White hot as a ghost
	When you live
	In a countdown

	Time
	Is free as a jailbird
	At least that's what I heard
	When you live
	In a hideout

	Love
	Comes cheap at a swapmeet
	It all comes so dirt cheap
	When you live
	In a bedroom

	Love
	Cuts deep as a razor
	But that ain't amazin'
	When you live
	In a cancer

	Ah-ah-ah
	Ah-ah-ah
	Ah-ah-ah
	Ah-ah-ah
	Ah

	Mind
	Gets scrambled like eggs
	Get bruised and erased
	When you live
	In a brainstorm

	Noise
	Seems logically right
	Ringing ears in the night
	When you live
	In an airport

 

( This is actually a pretty peaceful song , considering who sing's it.)

Oh, the song is Hard Hearted Alice. :)

 

 

Try this one. I'm teaching my boy to play this on the drums. WHich is amusing, as I don;t play drums, but I can accompany on guitar.

 

Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Is just a freight train coming your way

You have already given yourself a clue for this one.

 

Walkin' tall machine gun men.

They spit on me in my home land.

Gloria sent me pictures of my boy.

Got my pills 'gainst mosquito death.

My buddy's breathing his dyin' breath.

Oh God please won't you help me make it through.

The song was written by band member Jerry Cantrell for his father, Jerry Cantrell senior.

His nickname was "Rooster" and he fought in Vietnam, which is what the song is about.

Between the crosses row on row

What song....what artist....what year?

I don't have any idea, but it sounds very Pink Floyd-ish. ^_^

 

"Floating down, through the clouds.

Memories come rushing up to meet me now.

But in the space between the heavens and the corner of some foreign field.

I had a dream."

Cool thanks, you answered my question on the title of the song, and what it meant.I knew it was someone’s nickname, but now I know who it is.

It does have a Pink Floyd vibe.

The artist....The Guess Who

The year.....1969.

You're keeping in step, in the line, got your chin held high and you feel just fine,

'cause you do as you're told, but inside your heart is black, and it's hollow, and it's cold.........

 

This one is "The Hand That Feeds" by Nine Inch Nails....
