The Soundtrack of My Life

Stolen from beerhorse:

Name three songs whose lyrics you totally identify with. These are songs that when you hear them, you feel like they were written just for you.

  1. Red Tide

    RUSH

    Nature has some new plague
    To run in our streets
    History some new wrinkle
    We are doomed to repeat
    Fugitives at the bedroom door
    Lovers pause to find an open store
    Rain is burning on the forest floor
    And the red tide kisses the shore

    THIS IS NOT A FALSE ALARM
    THIS IS NOT A TEST

    Stay out of the sun
    It only burns my skin
    Sky full of poison
    And the atmosphere's too thin
    Bless the sun, the rain no more
    River running like an open sore
    Black wind falling to the ocean floor

    and the red tide washes ashore

    THIS IS NOT A FALSE ALARM
    THIS IS NOT A TEST
    Nowhere we can fly away
    Nowhere we can rest
    The party is disrupted by
    An uninvited guest

    Deadline approaches
    For the weary land
    It used to be something
    But we let it run down in our hands
    Too late for debate, too bad to ignore
    Quiet rebellion leads to open war
    Bring a sea-change to the factory floor
    As the red tide covers the shore

    Now's the time to turn the tide
    Now's the time to fight

    Let us not go gently
    To the endless winter night
    Now's the time to make the time
    While hope is still in sight
    Let us not go gently
    To the endless winter night

  2. New World Man

    RUSH

    He's a rebel and a runner
    He's a signal turning green
    He's a restless young romantic
    Wants to run the big machine

    He's got a problem with his poisons
    But you know he'll find a cure
    He's cleaning up his systems
    To keep his nature pure

    Learning to match the beat of the Old World man
    Learning to catch the heat of the Third World man

    He's got to make his own mistakes
    And learn to mend the mess he makes
    He's old enough to know what's right
    But young enough not to choose it
    He's noble enough to win the world
    But weak enough to lose it --
    He's a New World man...

    He's a radio receiver
    Tuned to factories and farms
    He's a writer and arranger
    And a young boy bearing arms

    He's got a problem with his power
    With weapons on patrol
    He's got to walk a fine line
    And keep his self-control

    Trying to save the day for the Old World man
    Trying to pave the way for the Third World man

    He's not concerned with yesterday
    He knows constant change is here today
    He's noble enough to know what's right
    But weak enough not to choose it
    He's wise enough to win the world
    But fool enough to lose it --
    He's a New World man...

  3. Heaven Can Wait

    Meat Loaf

    Heaven can wait
    And a band of angels wrapped up in my heart
    Will take me through the lonely night
    Through the cold of the day
    And I know, I know
    Heaven can wait
    And all the gods come down here just to sing for me
    And the melody's gonna make me fly
    Without pain
    Without fear

    Give me all of your dreams and
    Let me go along on your way
    Give me all of your prayers to sing
    And I'll turn the night into the skylight of day
    I got a taste of paradise
    I'm never gonna let it slip away
    I got a taste of paradise
    It's all I really need to make me stay--
    Just like a child again

    Heaven can wait
    And all I got is time until the end of time
    I won't look back
    I won't look back
    Let the altars shine

    And I know that I've been released
    But I don't know to where
    And nobody's gonna tell me now
    And I don't really care
    No no no
    I got a taste of paradise
    That's all I really needto make me stay
    I got a taste of paradise
    If I had it any sooner you know
    You know I never would have run away
    From my home

    Heaven can wait
    And all I got is time until the end of time
    I won't look back
    I won't look back
    Let the altars shine

    Heaven can wait
    Ohh, heaven can wait
    I won't look back
    I won't look back
    Let the altars shine
    Let the altars shine
