about

These are all songs I've enjoyed tralala'ing to. They are all loose covers of other artists, so they are, naturally, free of charge; and they are also all loosely recorded.

Track Name: I Will Always Love You [Cover, Dolly Parton]
if I should stay
I would only be in your way
so I go, but I know
I'll think of you
every step of the way

I will always love you
I will always love you
you, my darling, you

bittersweet memories
that's all I am taking with me
so goodbye, please don't cry
we both know
that I'm not
what you need

and I will always love you,
I will always love you
Track Name: I want you [abridged cover, Bob Dylan]
the guilty undertaker sighs
the lonesome organ grinder cries
the silver saxophones say I should refuse you
the cracked bells and washed out horns
blow into my face with scorn
but it's not that way, I wasn't born to lose you

I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad,
honey, I want you

the drunken politician leaps
upon the streets where mothers weep
and the saviors who are fast asleep, they wait for you
and I wait for them to interrupt
me drinking from that broken cup, and ask me
to open up the gates for you

I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad,
honey, I want you
Track Name: I'm on Fire [Bruce Springsteen, Cover]
hey little girl
is your daddy home
did he go and leave you all alone
got a bad desire
oh, I'm on fire

tell me now, baby
is he good to you?
can he do to you
the things that I do?
oh, I can take you higher
oh, I'm on fire

sometimes its's like someone
took a knife, baby, edgy & dull
and put a six inch valley
through the middle of my skull
only you can cool this desire
oh, I'm on fire

at night I wake up
with the sheets soaking wet
and a freight train running
through the middle of my head

oh, i'm on fire
Track Name: I won't back down [abridged Tom Petty, Cover]
well I won't back down
no I won't back down

you can stand me up at the gates of hell
but I won't back down

I'm going to stand my ground
won't be turned around

and I'll keep this world from dragging me down
going to stand my ground
and I won't back down

I will stand my ground
and I won't back down

well I know what's right
I got just one life

in a world that keeps on pushing me around
well I'll stand my ground
and I won't back down
Track Name: Hopelessly Devoted to You, Acapella [Olivia Newton John, Cover]
guess mine is not the first heart broken
my eyes are not the first to cry
I'm not the first to know
there's just no getting over you
I'm hopelessly devoted to you
hopelessly devoted to you . . .

you know I'm just a fool who's willing
to sit around and wait for you
but, baby, can't you see
there's nothing else for me to do
I'm hopelessly devoted to you

but now there's nowhere to hide
since you pushed my love aside
I'm out of my head
hopelessly devoted to you
hopelessly devoted to you

my head is saying, "Fool forget him."
my heart is saying, "Don't let go."
hold on to the end
and that's what I intend to do
I'm hopelessly devoted to you . . .
hopelessly devoted to you . . .
Track Name: If You Needed Me [abridged cover, Townes Van Zandt]
if I needed you
would you come to me
would you come to me
for to ease my pain

if you needed me
I would come to you
I would swim the seas
for to ease your pain
