Ambrosia – Holding On To Yesterday – 12/4/1976 – Capitol Theatre (Official)

July 15, 2020 Leave a comment

Well I keep holdin’ on to yesterday
I keep holdin’ on enough to say
That I’m wrong

I keep thinkin’that I’m lonely
But it’s only missing you inside
Days that we were once together
Seems they’ll never come alive

So I keep holdin’ on to yesterday
I keep holdin’ on enough to say
That it’s wrong

Lord I don’t know when I’ll see you
I can’t reach you anymore
If I’d only known I’d need you
Then I’d keep you like before

I keep holdin’ on to yesterday
I keep holdin’ on enough to say
That I’m wrong, wrong, wrong To keep holdin’ on
My yesterdays have all gone by

Black Eyed Peas “Missing You” (Live)

July 14, 2020 Leave a comment

I can’t stand another night
Stand another night without you

Since you’ve been away
Everything don’t seem like they used to be
Between you and me
‘Cause I’m missing you
I’m missing your love, love, love

I’m missing your love, love, love
I’m missing your love, love, love, love
I’m missing your love, love, love, love
I’m missing your love, love, love, love

Yo,yo,yo
Everyday everyday that you gone
I’m singing that sad song
If loving you is wrong
Then, then I must be wrong

Even if when I’m gone (don’t go away)
Our, our love is strong, (don’t go away)
You’re the one I want, (don’t go away)
You’re my, you’re my, you’re my number one

Yeah, our love ain’t goin’ out of fashion
I need your love, your passion
That love that’s everlasting, lastin’, lastin’, lastin’
Lastin’, lastin’, lastin’

Since you’ve been away
Everything don’t seem like they used to be
Between you and me
‘Cause I’m missing you
I’m missing your love love, love

I’m missing your love, love, love
I’m missing your love, love, love, love
I’m missing your love, love, love, love
I’m missing your love, love, love, love

When I’m out on the road (I’m missin’ you)
Rockin’ them shows,( missin’ you)
Up in Monaco (I’m missin’ you)
Making gold

When I’m AC plus (I’m missin’ you)
And glamorous, (miss kissin’ you)
But I miss your touch, (I’m missin’ you)
Yeah, I miss your touch (oh, oh, oh)

I spend all my time (missin’ you)
With you in mind, (missin’ you)
My mind’s on you ’cause all I am is missing you
(I’m missin’ you, missin’ you
I’m missin’ you, I’m missin’ you)

Since you’ve been away
Everything don’t seem like they used to be
Between you and me
‘Cause I’m missing you
I’m missing your love, love, love

I’m missing your love, love, love
I’m missing your love, love, love, love
I’m missing your love, love, love, love
I’m missing your love, love, love, love

It’s all a dream, girl I don’t know you’re a dream, come true

Girl, I never had nothin’ like this
When I’m all sprung caught up like this
Maybe it’s your face girl, maybe it’s your lips
Maybe it’s the way you shake them hips

Baby, it’s the way you do what you do
That got me all love struck on you
I’ll be just like an umbrella
The way I’m all over you

I know them other boys be callin’ you
But they just want a piece I want all of you
Take my time just spoilin’ you
‘Cause I know I’m in love with you, with you, with you

Please baby don’t go
I’m needin’ you now

I’m missin’ you, oh, oh, oh
I’m missin’ you, oh, oh, oh
I’m missin’ you, oh, oh, oh
I’m missin’ you, missin’ you
I’m missin’ you, I’m missin’ you

Hey, I miss your love, girl
I miss, I miss your love
I miss your love, girl
I miss, I miss your love

Hey, I miss your love, girl
I miss, I miss your love
I miss your love, girl
I miss, I miss your love

The Byrds:Eight Miles High (RARE 1967 clip)

July 13, 2020 Leave a comment

Eight miles high and when you touch down
You’ll find that it’s stranger than known
Signs in the street that say where you’re going
Are somewhere just being their own

Nowhere is there warmth to be found
Among those afraid of losing their ground
Rain gray town known for its sound
In places small faces unbound

Round the squares huddled in storms
Some laughing some just shapeless forms
Sidewalk scenes and black limousines
Some living some standing alone

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Purple Haze (Live at the Atlanta Pop Festival)

July 9, 2020 Leave a comment

Purple Haze all in my brain,
lately things don’t seem the same,
actin’ funny but I don’t know why
‘scuse me while I kiss the sky.

Purple Haze all around,
don’t know if I’m coming up or down.
Am I happy or in misery?
Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me.

Help me
Help me
Oh no, oh

Yeah, Purple Haze all in my eyes,
don’t know if it’s day or night,
you’ve got me blowing, blowing my mind
is it tomorrow or just the end of time?

Help me, yeah, Purple Haze!
