Mini-challenge #69 -- Lyrics

This challenge is about lyrics.

I'll often hear lyrics that remind me of particular photos I've taken or have seen from others, or the state of mind I was in while taking a particular photo.

Your job is to find a photo that has some connection to a song (the connection between the song and lyrics may be literal or abstract, the only requirement is that they are connected in *your* mind in some way). Posting the relevant lyrics for context (or even including a link to a youtube video) is encouraged. If the lyrics are not in English, please provide a translation for your idiot judge (that's me). It's OK if only the song title is connected to the photo but the lyrics aren't.

Quality of lyrics and music will not be judged, only the photos. But if the photos are tied, lyrics and music may be used as a tie-breaker :lol3

Here are a few examples (these happen to all be landscapes but obviously that is NOT a requirement!).

"In a mud cloud, mica-spangled, like the sky'd been breathing on a mirror" - Emily (by Joanna Newsom). The first time I heard this song this particular phrase stuck in my head, later, I took the following photo and thought back right away to the song:

344061875_MSofZ-L.jpg

"Though I know that evening's empire has returned into the sand. Vanished from my hand, left me blindly here to stand, but still not sleeping" - Mr. Tambourine Man (Bob Dylan).

I heard this in my car one night after driving back from shooting a sunset at Ruby Beach, it both reflected the subject (evening's empire returning into sand) and myself shooting it (left me blindly here to stand, but still not sleeping).

"He says there’s something about a sunrise, waking up sleepy eyed. He says there’s something about a highway, telling him he can’t stay.
He says there’s something about a long drive, that gives him some peace of mind" -- Nothing but a Good Ride (by Lyle Lovett). Several times last summer I woke up at 2-3AM before work to drive 2+ hours to Mt. Rainier to shoot the dawn and sunrise, after which I drove 2+ hours back to work. I can't wait until summer so I can do it again! This song reminds me of those trips, on which I took this photo (and several others):

GENERAL RULES

1. Have fun sharing and seeing what others share!
2. The host supplies a topic and you post 1-3 images. The host judges the winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and is not eligible to enter.
The 1st place winner then chooses the next topic, judges the winner and passes on the baton to the new champion.
3. Any photo you’ve taken is eligible, regardless of when taken or camera used.
4. Any amount of post-processing is allowed. However, it is helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo.
You may comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you some critique or criticism, put an asterisk (*) next to the title of the image.

2. Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website).
3. Also try and resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (~800 pixels on the longest side works best.)
4. Give each image you enter a title.
5. Enjoy discussion with members about their images, dont let this just be an entry thread!
6. Dont be hesitant, share'em and enter!

    This is a very fun idea. It was also the perfect way for me to procrastinate from studying for my mid-term exams by going through all my music and photos simultaneously...wooo!

    anyways, here you go.

    Lyrics - It's the same thing that makes the moonlight
    Meet up with the sunlight
    Can't fight it can't buy it
    Love... I'm a say it again

    Next is War by Bruce Springsteen a.k.a. my favorite person to ever walk the face of the earth.

    Lyrics - War
    It's nothing but a heartbreaker
    War
    Friend only to the undertaker
    War is the enemy of all mankind
    hanksoldiercryingkk3.jpg

    Next is Bright Lights by matchbox Twenty

    Lyrics - Maybe, maybe, maybe
    You'll find something that's enough to keep you
    But if the bright lights don't receive you
    You should turn yourself around and come on home

    Great theme.

    Ron, your examples are breathtaking.

    Hank (I hope I have your name right) - all three are wonderful but the second is just stunning.

    Casey Jones — The Grateful Dead

    Driving that train, high on co_ _ _ _ _,
    Casey jones is ready, watch your speed.
    Trouble ahead, trouble behind,
    And you know that notion just crossed my mind.

    This old engine makes it on time,
    Leaves central station bout a quarter to nine,
    Hits river junction at seventeen to,
    At a quarter to ten you know its travlin again.

    Driving that train, high on co_ _ _ _ _,,
    Casey jones is ready, watch your speed.
    Trouble ahead, trouble behind,
    And you know that notion just crossed my mind.

    Trouble ahead, lady in red,
    Take my advice youd be better off dead.
    Switchmans sleeping, train hundred and two is
    On the wrong track and headed for you.

    Driving that train, high on co_ _ _ _ _,,
    Casey jones is ready, watch your speed.
    Trouble ahead, trouble behind,
    And you know that notion just crossed my mind.

    Trouble with you is the trouble with me,
    Got two good eyes but you still dont see.
    Come round the bend, you know its the end,
    The fireman screams and the engine just gleams...

    Excerpt from Waiting On a Friend — The Rolling Stones

    A smile relieves a heart that grieves
    Remember what I said
    I'm not waiting on a lady
    I'm just waiting on a friend

    Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay — Otis Redding

    Sittin' in the mornin' sun
    I'll be sittin' when the evenin' come
    Watching the ships roll in
    And then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah

    I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
    Watching the tide roll away
    Ooo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
    Wastin' time

    I left my home in Georgia
    Headed for the 'Frisco bay
    'Cause I've had nothing to live for
    And look like nothin's gonna come my way

    So I'm just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
    Watching the tide roll away
    Ooo, I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
    Wastin' time

    Look like nothing's gonna change
    Everything still remains the same
    I can't do what ten people tell me to do
    So I guess I'll remain the same, yes

    Sittin' here resting my bones
    And this loneliness won't leave me alone
    It's two thousand miles I roamed
    Just to make this dock my home

    Now, I'm just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
    Watching the tide roll away
    Oooo-wee, sittin' on the dock of the bay
    Wastin' time

    This is a fun theme. Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

    Cloudy
    The sky is gray and white and cloudy,
    Sometimes I think it's hanging down on me.
    And it's a hitchhike a hundred miles.
    I'm a rag-a-muffin child.
    Pointed finger-painted smile.
    I left my shadow waiting down the road for me a while.

    Cloudy
    My thoughts are scattered and they're cloudy,
    They have no borders, no boundaries.
    They echo and they swell
    From Tolstoy to Tinker Bell.
    Down from Berkeley to Carmel.
    Got some pictures in my pocket and a lot of time to kill.

    Hey sunshine
    I haven't seen you in a long time.
    Why don't you show your face and bend my mind?
    These clouds stick to the sky
    Like floating questions, why?
    And they linger there to die.
    They don't know where they are going, and, my friend, neither do I.

    Cloudy,
    Cloudy.

    1. Praise You In This Storm ~ Casting Crowns

    I was sure by now
    That You would have reached down
    And wiped our tears away
    Stepped in and saved the day
    But once again, I say "Amen", and it's still raining
    As the thunder rolls
    I barely hear You whisper through the rain
    "I'm with you"
    And as Your mercy falls
    I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
    And takes away
    Chorus:
    I'll praise You in this storm
    And I will lift my hands
    For You are who You are
    No matter where I am
    Every tear I've cried
    You hold in Your hand
    You never left my side
    And though my heart is torn
    I will praise You in this storm
    I remember when
    I stumbled in the wind
    You heard my cry
    You raised me up again
    My strength is almost gone
    How can I carry on
    If I can't find You
    I lift my eyes unto the hills
    Where does my help come from?
    My help comes from the Lord
    The maker of heaven and earth

    Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take ya
    To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
    Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go
    Jamaica
    off the Florida Keys
    There's a place called Kokomo
    That's where you wanna go to get away from it all

    Bodies in the sand
    Tropical drink melting in your hand
    We'll be falling in love
    To the rhythm of a steel drum band
    Down in Kokomo

    Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take ya
    To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
    Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

    Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo

    And then we'll take it slow
    That's where we wanna go
    Way down to Kokomo

    To Martinique, that Monserrat mystique

    We'll put out to sea
    And we'll perfect our chemistry
    By and by we'll defy a little bit of gravity

    Afternoon delight
    cocktails and moonlit nights
    That dreamy look in your eye
    Give me a tropical contact high
    Way down in Kokomo

    Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take ya
    To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
    Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

    Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
    We'll get there fast
    And then we'll take it slow
    That's where we wanna go
    Way down to Kokomo

    Port Au Prince I wanna catch a glimpse

    Everybody knows
    A little place like Kokomo
    Now if you wanna go
    And get away from it all
    Go down to Kokomo

    Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take ya
    To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
    Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

    Ooo i want to take you down to Kokomo
    We'll get there fast

    Here's mine:

    Little darling, it's been a long, cold, lonely winter.
    Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here.

    An 18 day exposure?!? Holy smokes. I feel 30 seconds is too long. I'm totally blown away. Wow.

    How about a 6-month exposure?

    Yeah, 18 days was a nice little first test. 6 months is a practical maximum, because the sun starts re-tracing the same lines.

    Did you check out the solargraphy link? There are a number of photos posted there by your fellow countrymen.

    I would love to try something like that! The camera looks simple enough -- it's the development work I'm leary of.

    What development work? You take the paper out of the can, scan it (or take a picture of it) as it is, and then it's simple post stuff.

    I have that picture posted here, we can discuss it there without taking over this thread completely.

    Hi Everyone
    373702830_S4bxg-M-4.jpg

    At last my love has come along
    My lonely days are over
    And life is like a song

    Ohh yeah yeah
    At last
    the skies above are blue
    My heart was wrapped up in clover
    The night I looked at you

    I found a dream, that I could speak to
    A dream that I can call my own
    I found a thrill to press my cheek to
    A thrill that I have never known

    Ohh yeah yeah…
    You smile, you smile
    oh And then the spell was cast
    And here we are in heaven
    for you are mine....
    At Last

    "Sympathy For The Devil"

    Please allow me to introduce myself
    I'm a man of wealth and taste
    I've been around for a long, long year
    Stole many a man's soul and faith

    And I was 'round when Jesus Christ
    Had his moment of doubt and pain
    Made damn sure that Pilate
    Washed his hands and sealed his fate

    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guess my name
    But what's puzzling you
    Is the nature of my game

    I stuck around St. Petersberg
    When I saw it was a time for a change
    Killed the Czar and his ministers
    Anastasia screamed in vain

    I rode a tank
    Held a general's rank
    When the Blitzkrieg raged
    And the bodies stank

    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
    What's puzzling you
    Is the nature of my game, oh yeah

    I watched with glee
    While your kings and queens
    Fought for ten decades
    For the Gods they made

    I shouted out
    "Who killed the Kennedys?"
    When after all
    It was you and me

    Let me please introduce myself
    I'm a man of wealth and taste
    And I laid traps for troubadors
    Who get killed before they reached Bombay

    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
    But what's puzzling you
    Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby

    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
    But what's confusing you
    Is just the nature of my game

    Just as every cop is a criminal
    And all the sinners saints
    As heads is tails
    Just call me Lucifer
    'Cause I'm in need of some restraint

    So if you meet me
    Have some courtesy
    Have some sympathy, and some taste
    Use all your well-learned politesse
    Or I'll lay your soul to waste, um yeah

    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
    But what's puzzling you
    Is the nature of my game, um baby, get down

    Woo, who
    Oh yeah, get on down
    Oh yeah
    Oh yeah!

    Tell me baby, what's my name
    Tell me honey, baby guess my name
    Tell me baby, what's my name
    I tell you one time, you're to blame

    Ooo, who
    Ooo, who
    Ooo, who
    Ooo, who, who
    Ooo, who, who
    Ooo, who, who
    Ooo, who, who
    Oh, yeah

    What's my name
    Tell me, baby, what's my name
    Tell me, sweetie, what's my name
    You're only as good as your next photo....
    One day, I started writing, not knowing that I had chained myself for life to a noble but merciless master. When God hands you a gift, he also hands you a whip; and the whip is intended solely for self-flagellation...I'm here alone in my dark madness, all by myself with my deck of cards --- and, of course, the whip God gave me." Truman Capote

    Imagine by John Lennon

    "You may say that I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one "

    Ben by Michael Jackson

    Ben, the two of us need look no more
    We both found what we were looking for
    With a friend to call my own
    I'll never be alone
    And you, my friend, will see
    You've got a friend in me

    Falling Leaves - Sixpence None the richer

    Standing in the middle of a forest
    Basking in the glorious autumn
    Watching the leaves as they change
    From green, from green to orange, yellow and brown
    I'm falling down
    I'm falling down
