Orientation Lyrics

(4)
Submitted by level 21 록스타
1. Black Sheep
In love with the maiden, the flower of winter.
Lowbrow children, in grove of the inland.
How many times hearts gone thru the grinder?
wherever you look there's a painful reminder.

Singing a love song,
words of a stranger.
The howling miller,
never to face her.

Temple of the evil, temple of the weak.
No one knows how bad he feels.
Late-night innuendo, temptation of the key.
Live with the black sheep, live with me!

Insanity, blessing for those born to hate you.
Burned by the embers of love, it is so cruel.
Howling the night for sun of the midnight.
Serving the people, condemned you in the eternal night.

Night of the lost song,
words of the stranger.
The howling miller,
never to face her.

Temple of the evil, temple of the weak.
No one knows how bad he feels.
Late-night innuendo, temptation of the key.
Live with the black sheep, live with me!
2. Mary-Lou (Acoustic Version)
Mamas put your babies to sleep,
story is too cruelsome for them this is.
In Junior high she said goodbye,
to her parents and ran away with a boy.

She left her family warm and kind,
all of her friends said "you´re out of your mind".
Life of her own she would find,
it´s monday and she´s gotta grind.

A Job as a waitress she sure was to find,
beautiful face, mind of a child.
Boy got her pregnant, Mary-Lou cried:
"For this I am too young, why did you lie?".

You said "it´s okay if we do it today".
I was so scared that you would go away.
Despite all the papers been signed.
Mama take me back, be so kind.

Only a child, reckless and wild,
needs to come home again.
He promised the moon,
but won´t marry you.

Nothing to do and eating for two,
he´s goin´ out with someone new.
Sunshine or rain, it´s all the same.
Life isn´t gray, Mary-Lou.

Mamas do your children still sleep,
in the safe of their cradles so sweet?
Story I told you I have forseen,
your little angel ain´t always so clean.

Days to come aren´t easy to see,
you can change ´em but it isn´t free.
I see that you don´t believe, but you will see.

Only a child, reckless and wild,
needs to come home again.
He promised the moon,
but won´t marry you.

Nothing to do and eating for two,
he´s goin´ out with someone new.
Sunshine or rain, it´s all the same.
Life isn´t gray, Mary-Lou.
3. The Wind Beneath My Wings [Bette Midler Cover]
It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine,
you always walked a step behind.

I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength.
Only a face without a name,
I never once heard you complain.

Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
because you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth,
I would be nothing with out you.

Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
because you are the wind beneath my...

Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
because you are the wind beneath my wings
4. Die With Your Boots On [Iron Maiden Cover]
Another prophet of disaster,
who says the ship is lost.
Another prophet of disaster,
leaving you to count the cost.

Taunting us with visions,
afflicting us with fear.
Predicting war for millions,
in the hope that one appears.

No point asking when it is!
No point asking who's to go!
No point asking what's the game!
No point asking who's to blame!

'Cos if you're gonna die,
if you're gonna die!
If you're gonna die!

If you're gonna die,
die with your boots on!
If you're gonna try,
just stick around!

Gonna cry, just move along!
If you're gonna die,
you're gonna die!

In 13 the beast is rising,
the Frenchman did surmise.
Through earthquakes and starvation,
the warlord will arise.

Terror, death, destruction,
pour from the eastern sands.
But the truth of all predictions,
is always in your hands.

No point asking when it is!
No point asking who's to go!
No point asking what's the game!
No point asking who's to blame!

If you're gonna die,
die with your boots on!
If you're gonna try,
just stick around!

Gonna cry, just move along!
If you're gonna die,
you're gonna die!

No point asking when it is!
No point asking who's to go!
No point asking what's the game!
No point asking who's to blame!

If you're gonna die,
die with your boots on!
If you're gonna try,
just stick around!

Gonna cry, just move along!
If you're gonna die,
you're gonna die!
