Wayne Hancock - Horsell Common And The Heat Ray lyrics



Horsell Common And The Heat Ray by Wayne Hancock


Journalist: Next morning a crowd gathered on the common, hypnotized by the unscrewing of the cylinder. Two feet of shining screw projected when suddenly, the lid fell off.
Two luminous, disk-like eyes appeared above the rim. A huge rounded bulk, larger than a bear, rose up slowly, glistening like wet leather. it's lipless mouth quivered and slathered and snakelike tentacles writhed as the clumsy body heaved and pulsated.
A few young men crept closer to the pit. A tall funnel rose and an invisible ray of heat leapt from man to man, and there was a bright glare as each was instantly turned to fire. Every tree and bush became a mass of flames at the touch of this savage, unearthly heat ray.
People clawed their way off the common, and I ran too. I felt I was being toyed with, that when I was on the very verge of safety this mysterious death would leap after me and strike me down. At last I reached Maybury Hill, and in the dim coolness of my home I wrote an account for my newspaper before I sank into a restless, haunted sleep.
I awoke to alien sounds of hammering from the pit and hurried to the railway station to buy the paper.
Around me, the daily routine of life, working eating, sleeping, was continuing serenely as it had for countless years.
On Horsell Common, the Martians continued hammering and stirring, sleepless, indefatigable, at work on the machines they were making. Now and again a light like the beam of a warship's searchlight swept the common, and the heat ray was ready to follow.
In the afternoon, a company of soldiers came through and deployed along the edge of the common to form a cordon.
That evening, there was a violent crash and I realized with horror that my home was now within reach of the Martian heat ray.
At dawn, a falling star with a trail of green mist landed with a flash like summer lightning. This was the second cylinder.

Wayne Hancock - Forever Autumn lyrics



Forever Autumn by Wayne Hancock


Journalist: For three days I fought my way along roads packed with refugees, the homeless, burdened with boxes and bundles containing their valuables. All that was of value to me was in London, but by the time I reached their little red brick house, Carrie and her father were gone.
Forever Autumn
The summer sun is fading as the year grows old,
And darker days are drawing near,
The winter winds will be much colder,
Now you’re not here
I watch the birds fly south across the Autumn sky,
And one by one they disappear,
I with that I was flying with them,
Now you’re not here
Like the sun through the trees you came to love me,
Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away
Through Autumn’s golden gown we used to kick our way,
You always loved this time of year,
Those fallen leaves lie undisturbed now,
‘Cause you’re not here
‘Cause you’re not here
‘Cause you’re not here
Journalist: Fire suddenly leapt from house to house, the population panicked and ran – and I was swept along with them, aimless and lost without Carrie. Finally I headed Eastward for the ocean, and my only hope of survival – a boat out of London.
Like the sun through the trees you came to love me,
Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away
A gentle rain falls softly on my weary eyes,
As if to hide a lonely tear,
My life will be forever Autumn,
‘Cause you’re not here
‘Cause you’re not here
‘Cause you’re not here
Journalist: As I hastened through Covent Garden, Blackfriars and Billingsgate, more and more people joined the painful exodus. Sad, weary woman, their children stumbling and streaked with tears, their men bitter and angry, the rich rubbing shoulder with beggars and outcasts. Dogs snarled and whined, the horses bits were covered with foam…. And here and there were wounded soldiers, as helpless as the rest. We saw tripods wading up the Thames, cutting through bridges as though they were paper – Waterloo Bridge, Westminster Bridge…. One appeared above Big Ben.
Ulla!
Journalist: Never before in the history of the world had such a mass of human beings moved and suffered together. This was no disciplined march – it was a stampede – without order and without a goal, six million people unarmed and unprovisioned, driving headlong. It was the beginning of the rout of civilisation, of the massacre of mankind.
A vast crown buffeted me toward the already packed steamer. I looked up enviously at those safely onboard – straight into the eyes of my beloved Carrie! At sight of me she began to fight her way along the packed deck to the gangplank. At that very moment it was raised, and I caught a last glimpse of her despairing face as the crowd swept me away from her.
Like the sun through the trees you came to love me,
Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away
Through Autumn’s golden gown we used to kick our way,
You always loved this time of year,
Those fallen leaves lie undisturbed now,
‘Cause you’re not here
‘Cause you’re not here
‘Cause you’re not here
Ulla!
Journalist: The steamer began to move slowly away – but on the landward horizon appeared the silhouette of a fighting machine. Another came, and another, striding over hills and plunging far out to sea and blocking the exit of the steamer. Between them lay the silent, grey Ironclad “Thunder Child”. Slowly it moved towards shore; then, with a deafening roar and whoosh of spray, it swung about and drove at full speed towards the waiting Martians.

Wynonna Judd - Can’t nobody love you lyrics



Can’t nobody love you by Wynonna Judd


Can't nobody love you like I do
Not now, no not ever
There ain't no doubt I know this thing
We have, could last forever
Others may promise the stars in the sky
But sooner or later you'll find
Can't nobody love you like I do
Can't nobody hold you quite this close
All night like I want to
Baby put your sweet lips here on mine
You'll see 'cause I'm gonna show you
Just how an angel like you should be loved
I can't feel you enough
Can't nobody love you like I do
Can't nobody love you like I do
Who knows when it's meant to be
Well love knows and it sent you to me
You don't know how I live for the day
You look at me and you say
Can't nobody love you like I do
Can't nobody love you like I do
Can't nobody love you like I do

Wynonna Judd - Flies on the butter lyrics

Wynonna Judd - Flies on the butter lyrics



Flies on the butter by Wynonna Judd


Old tin roof, leaves in the gutter
A hole in the screen door big as your fist, and flies on the butter
Mamaw baking sugar cookies, we were watching cartoons
Heard her holler from the kitchen which one of you youngin's wants to lick the spoon?
Yellow jackets on the watermelon, honeysuckle in the air
Daddy turning on the sprinkler, us kids running through it in our underwear
Old dog napping on the front porch, his ear just a-twitching
Fell asleep on Granddaddy's lap to the sound of his pocket watch ticking
Chorus
Oh, oh, oh - Oh, oh, oh
It doesn't seem like it was all that long ago
Oh, oh, oh - Oh, oh, oh
You can dream about it every now and then
But you can't go home again
Me and my best friend Jenny set up a back yard camp
Stole one of Mama's Mason jars, poked holes in the lid and made a fire fly lamp
Me and Billy Monroe sneaking down by the river
And I'm still haunted by the taste kiss I was too scared to give him
Repeat Chorus
There's a black-top road, a faded yellow centerline
It can take you back to the place, but it can't take you back in time
Repeat Chorus
Old tin roof, leaves in the gutter
A hole in the screen door big as your fist, and flies on the butter

Wynonna - Testify To Love lyrics

Wynonna - Testify To Love lyrics



Testify To Love by Wynonna


All the colors of the rainbow
All the voices of the wind
Every dream that reaches out
That reaches out to find where love begins
Every word of every story
Every star in every sky
Every corner of creation lives to testify
For as long as I shall live
I will testify to love
I'll be a witness in the silences
When words are not enough
With every breath I take
I will give thanks to God above
For as long as I shall live
I will testify to love
From the mountains to the valleys
From the rivers to the sea
Every hand that reaches out
Every hand that reaches out to offer peace
Every simple act of mercy
Every step to kingdom come
All the hope in every heart will speak
What love has done
For as long as I shall live
I will testify to love
I'll be a witness in the silences
When words are not enough
With every breath I take
Will give thanks to God above
For as long as I shall live
I will testify....
I will testify to love
(For as long as I shall live
I will testify to love)
I'll be a witness in the silences
When words are not enough
With every breath I take
Will give thanks to God above
For as long as I shall live
I will testify to love
{repeat}

[[ Chorus ]]
I still believe that you love me baby
I still believe that you care darling

Without a doubt she loves me and she cares

Girl i apologize for treating you so cruel
I took her for granted and lost it all

Baby be there for me, baby be there for me

Wayne Hancock - Eve Of The War lyrics

Wayne Hancock - Eve Of The War lyrics



Eve Of The War by Wayne Hancock


The Eve Of The War
Journalist: No one would have believed, in the last years of the nineteenth century that human affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space. No one could have dreamed that we were being scrutinized, as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. Few men even considered the possibility of life on other planets and yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this Earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely, they drew their plans against us.
At midnight on the twelfth of August, a huge mass of luminous gas erupted from Mars and sped towards Earth. Across two hundred million miles of void, invisibly hurtling towards us were the first of the missiles that were to bring so much calamity to Earth. As I watched, there was another jet of gas. It was another missile starting on it's way.
And that’s how it was for the next ten nights. A flare, spurting out from Mars – bright green, drawing a green mist behind it – a beautiful, but somehow disturbing sight. Ogilvy the astronomer, assured me we were in no danger. He was convinced that there could be no living thing on that remote forbidding planet.
“The chances of anything coming from mars are a million to one” he said
“The chances of anything coming from mars are a million to one – but still they come!”
Journalist: Then came the night the first missile approached Earth. It was thought to be an ordinary falling star, but next day there was huge crater in the middle of the Common, and Ogilvy came to examine what lay there: a cylinder, thirty yards across, glowing hot…. And with faint sounds of movement coming from within.
Suddenly the top began moving, rotating, unscrewing, and Ogilvy feared there was a man inside, trying to escape. He rushed to the cylinder, but the intense heat stopped him before he could burn himself on the metal.
“The chances of anything coming from mars are a million to one – but still they come!”
“The chances of anything coming from mars are a million to one” he said
“The chances of anything coming from mars are a million to one – but still they come!”
“Yes, the chances of anything coming from mars are a million to one – but still they come!”
It seems totally incredible to me now that everyone spent that evening as though it were just like any other. From the railway station came the sound of shunting trains, ringing and rumbling, softened almost into melody by the distance.
It all seemed to safe and tranquil.

Wynonna - Attitude lyrics



Attitude by Wynonna


One, two, here we go with the Attitude, yeah.
Hey!
I been up an' down, sideways, crossways,
Outside in an' inside out.
I took a rocky ride across the sky,
Couple times, till the fire burned out.
Well, I hit the ground a time or two,
But I got back up an' I found the truth.
An' said: "Hey, ol' Wynonna got somethin' to say."
Oh, whoa, you know I know what I'm talkin' about.
There's two ways to take what this ol' life's gonna throw at you:
You can choose to win or lose:
It's all about attitude, yeah.
Chop.
Well, this world has tried to break me, shake me:
Tried to take the fight outta me, ha ha.
But I've always come back bigger, badder, better,
Always land on my feet, ha, that's right.
Well, I coulda given up, coulda got down, down, down, down.
Well, I kept on swingin' an' I went another round.
Hey, ol' Wynonna got somethin' to say.
Oh, whoa, you know I know what I'm talkin' about.
There's two ways to take what this ol' life's gonna throw at you:
You can choose to win or lose:
It's all about attitude, yeah.
That's right.
(Yeah, yeah.)
(An' I got a witness.)
Well, you can lay down, (Lay down.)
You can roll on over. (Roll on over.)
Get outta the way, (Get outta the way.)
Or you can move that mountain over.
Say, hey, well, this redhead's got somethin' to say.
Whoa, you know I know what I'm talkin' about.
There's two ways to take what this ol' world's gonna throw at you;
It all comes down to you;
An attutude.

Wynonna - What The World Needs lyrics

Wynonna - What The World Needs lyrics



What The World Needs by Wynonna


I look around at all the faces and I see
All the lonely people looking back at me
Rich, poor don't matter we're all the same
Everybody's hungry in a different way
We're clawin' and climbin' and kickin' and screamin' and fightin' but really
[Chorus]
What the world needs now is love
Love and only love
A little help from up above
Faith to make a better day
Let's come together
Lay our differences down
Spread it all around
That's what the world needs now
(La, la, la, la, la)
Sometimes all it takes is just a smile
To change somebody's weather
Chase the clouds out of their sky
Sometimes you gotta give and not receive
Sometimes you gotta live what you believe
Open your arms cause that's where it starts
Right here with you and with me
[Chorus]
[Bridge]
Nobody likes the cold
We all need someone to hold
No one wants to be alone
[Chorus: Repeat 3 times]
([Third time:] "Let's come together, lay our prejudices down...")
(La, la, la, la, la)
[Fade Out]
