This one: (Chorus omitted)

"Hey baby if you're feelin' down
I know what's good for you all day
Are you worried what your friends see?
Will it ruin your reputation lovin' me?

Don't drive no big black car
Don't like no Hollywood movie star
You want me to be true to you
You don't give a damn what I do to you

I've been in trouble since I don't know when
I'm in trouble now and I know somehow I'll find trouble again
I'm a loner but I'm never alone
Every night I get one step closer to the danger zone."

Can you name it?
No fair using a search engine.
Foreigner; Dirty White Boy

That's my guess and I'm sticking to it.
Right you are.
And you win--an autographed picture of yourself.
here ya go.

loaded like a freight train
flyin' like an aeroplane
feelin' like a space brain
one more time tonight

well i'm a west coast struttin'
one bad mother
got a rattlesnake suitcase
under my arm
said i'm a mean machine
been drinking gasoline
an honey you can make my motor hum
i got one chance left
in a nine live cat
i got a dog eat dog sly smile
i got a molotov cocktail with a match to go
i smoke my cigarette with style
as i can tell you honey
you can make my money tonight


GnR baby. Nighttrain. :D . .am a big fan of GnR. (Guns and Roses).
your right. you win a free trip to your fridge.
here ya go.

it's a state of affairs
and a state of emotions
the kind of thing you must
i tell you one thing
you'll tell me another
we walk away
maybe then shake hands

that's all you get this time.
Blues Traveler, But anyway

Try this one on for size

Just lying in the bar with my drip feed on
Talking to my girlfriend, waiting for something to happen
I wish it was the sixties, I wish I could be happy
I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen

Where do we go from here?
The planet is a gunboat in a sea of fear
And where are you?
They brought in the CIA, the tanks and the whole marines
To blow me away, to blow me sky high
sure does. I didn't know it. who was it?
(in the mean time.)

"just a reflection
just a glimpse
just a little reminder
of all the what abouts
and all the might have
could have beens
another day
some other way
but not another reason to continue
and now you're one of us...."
(last line of that verse deleted would given it away)
Mine was The Bends by Radiohead.
I'm pretty sure yours is The Wretched by NIN
Alright, I'll make this one a lil easier

In my eyes
In disguise
As no one knows
Hides the face
Lies the snake
The sun
In my disgrace
Boiling heat
Summer stench
’neath the black
The sky looks dead
Call my name
Through the cream
And I’ll hear you
Scream again


Cold and damp
Steal the warm wind
Tired friend
Times are gone
For honest men
And sometimes
Far too long
For snakes
In my shoes
A walking sleep
And my youth
I pray to keep
Heaven send
Hell away
No one sings
Like you


Hang my head
Drown my fear
Till you all just


I think somebody should at least recognize this one. Real big hit back in the 90's. The band isn't still together but the lead singer has a new hit making band.
here ya go.

candles raise my desire
why i'm so far away
no more meaning to my life
no more reason to stay
freezing feeling breath in - breath in
i'm coming back again
i'm not the one who's so far away
when i feel the snake bite enter my veins
never did i want to be here again
and i dont remember why i came
hazing clouds rain on my head
empty my thoughts fill my fears

thats all ya get.
You got it El Diable Verde. One of my top ten. :D

B. Grunt. That Godsmack. Voodoo. (I think thats the name). But def. Godsmack.
Try this one on for size fellas

every time that I look in the mirror
all these lines on my face getting clearer
the past is gone
it went by like dusk to dawn
isn't that the way
everybody's got their dues in life to pay

yeah, I know nobody knows
where it comes and where it goes
I know it's everybody's sin
you got to lose to know how to win

half my life's in books' written pages
live and learn from fools and from sages
you know it's true
all the things come back to you

I have full faith in you guys on this one, almost too easy.
here ya go. this song was a hit in 1988.

neon lights, a nobile prize
the mirror speaks, the reflection lies
you don't have to follow me
only you can set me free

i sell the things you need to be
i'm the smiling face on your t.v.

sorry but thats all i can give ya.
"She don't like her eggs all runny,
she thinks crossin' her legs looks funny.
she looks down her nose at money
get's it on like the Easter Bunny"

"I'm her man and she's my honey,
ain't never gonna let'er go"
Hick i couldnt take it anymore so i had to cheat on this one. V BISHOP
wow bro. I'd forgotten this post.
Actually the performance of that song that I have is done by John Prine, accompanied by Bonnie Raeht.(I think) I first saw Prine at a "Bluegrass fest" way back in the 70's. Had never heard of him before then.

He bounced out onto the stage wearing big o' brogan boots, with the soles cut loose from the toes all the way to the heel, dancin' and makeing a mouthharp "talk" I tell ya'. Been a loyal fan from that day on.
