“Roll to Me” by Del Amitri

Look around your world pretty baby
Is it everything you hoped it’d be
The wrong guy, the wrong situation
The right time to roll to me

Roll to me

Look into your heart pretty baby
Is it aching with some nameless need?
Is there something wrong
And you can’t put your finger on it?
Right, then roll to me

And I don’t think I have ever seen
A soul so in despair
So if you want to talk the night through
Guess who will be there?

So don’t try to deny it pretty baby
You’ve been down so long you can hardly see
When the engine’s stalled and it won’t stop raining
It’s the right time to roll to me
Roll to me
Roll to me

And I don’t think I have ever seen
A soul so in despair
So if you want to talk the night through
Guess who will be there?

So,
Look around your world pretty baby
Is it everything you hoped it’d be
The wrong guy, the wrong situation
The right time to roll to me
The right time to roll to me
The right time to roll to me…oooh

“Don’t Dream It’s Over” by Crowded House

There is freedom within
There is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There’s a battle ahead
Many battles are lost
But you’ll never see the end of the road
While you’re travelling with me

Hey now
Hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now
Hey now
When the world comes in
They come
They come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m towing my car
There’s a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there’s no proof
In the paper today
Tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the TV page

Hey now
Hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now
Hey now
When the world comes in
They come
They come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m walking again
To the beat of a drum
And I’m counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead
Barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and release

Hey now
Hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now
Hey now
When the world comes in
They come
They come
To build a wall between us
You know they won’t win

Don’t let them win
Hey now
Hey now
Hey now
Hey now
Hey now
Hey now
Don’t let them win (They come, they come)
Don’t let them win (Hey now, hey now)

“Be A Light” by Thomas Rhett

In a time full of war, be peace
In a time full of doubt, just believe
Yeah, there ain’t that much difference between you and me
In a time full of war, be peace

In a world full of hate, be a light
When you do somebody wrong, make it right
Don’t hide in the dark, you were born to shine
In a world full of hate, be a light
(La-la-la, la, la, la, la)

In a place that needs change, make a difference
In a time full of noise, just listen
‘Cause life is but a breeze, better live it
In a place that needs a change, make a difference

In a world full of hate, be a light
When you do somebody wrong, make it right
Oh, don’t hide in the dark, you were born to shine
In a world full of hate, be a light
La-la-la, la, la, la, la
La-la-la, la, la, la, la
La-la-la, la, la, la, la
La-la-la, la, la, la, la

In a race that you can’t win, slow it down
Yeah, you only get one go around
‘Cause the finish line is six feet in the ground
In a race you can’t win, just slow it down

In a world full of hate, be a light (oh)
When you do somebody wrong, make it right (make it right)
Don’t hide in the dark (don’t hide in the dark), you were born to shine
In a world full of hate, be a light

Yeah, it’s hard to live in color, when you just see black and white
In a world full of hate, be a light

“Still Waiting” by Sum 41

So am I still waiting
For this world to stop hating
Can’t find a good reason
Can’t find hope to believe in

Drop dead a bullet to my head
Your words are like a gun in hand
You can’t change the state of the nation
We just need some motivation
Three times casino eviction
Just lies and more contradiction

So tell me what would you say
I’d say its up, to me

So am I still waiting
For this world to stop hating
Can’t find a good reason
Can’t find hope to believe in

Ignorance and Understanding
We’re the first ones to jump in line
Out of step for what we believe in
But who’s left? To start the pleading
How far will we take this
It’s not hard to see through the sickness

So tell me what would you say
I’d say its up, to me

So am I still waiting
For this world to stop hating
Can’t find a good reason
Can’t find hope to believe in

This can’t last forever
Time won’t make things better
I feel so alone
Can’t help myself
And no one knows
If this is worthless
Tell me, so

What have we done
We’re in a war that can’t be won
This can’t be real
I don’t know what to feel

So am I still waiting
For this world to stop hating
Can’t find a good reason
Can’t find hope to believe in

So am I still waiting
For this world to stop hating
Can’t find a good reason
Can’t find hope to believe in

“Everybody Out of the Water” by the Wallflowers

On your mark
Get set let’s go
You got to move on
Before she explodes
Look out the window
Lookout below
Back away from the glass
There she blows
The city’s been leveled
Hills are in flames
Streets cracked open
And they’re pushin’ up clay
Temperature’s dropped
Sky is grey
And it ain’t even over
Here comes drivin’ rain

It ain’t me
That you feel
There’s something moving
Around in here
That’s blood
That’s tears
This ain’t a warning…

Everybody out of the water
Up on dry land
Take what you can
Cause’ you won’t be here again
Everybody out of the water

Now I’m treadin’ high water
To get back to you
Been looking for a low spot
Or something to cling to
There’s too many bodies

There’s not enough room
God help me
And God help you
They say nobody panic
Help is on it’s way
We’re already on it
You’ve got to be brave
If you can fix it now
Then don’t make us wait
Man there ain’t nobody coming
Back away from the gates

That bell
That you hear
That’s hell
Ringing in your ears
I fear
That my dear
This ain’t a warning…

[chorus]

Now I’m looking up
And the shit keeps coming
Like shooting ducks
In a barrel of honey
Got to learn how to pray
Love won’t be enough
Admit it now
Your information sucks
As I slip
Down in
I think of us someplace
High on a mountain
Smoke clears
Fog lifts
Little by little
We rebuild again
Till’ then…

[chorus]
