metro was a cool song, back when Berlin was still cool, before they got all "mainstream" with take my breath away.
And on that note :p

I remember this was the theme song for a christian film I watched as a child. Wish I knew the name of it. This little girl would wait at the window each day for her dad to return home, but one day he never returned. He had died in a motorbike accident. It was really sad and a powerful film, just wish I could find it. Every time I hear this song I'm reminded of it.

Yayy I can't post videos :D so I copied the lyrics :D

Leader of the Band
By: Dan Fogelberg
released:1981


An only child alone and wild,a cabinet maker's son
His hands were meant for different work
And his heart was known to none
He left his home and went his lone solitary way
And he gave to me a gift I know I never can repay

A quiet man of music denied a simpler fate
He tried to be a soldier once,but his music wouldn't wait
He earned his love through discipline,a thundering velvet hand
His gentle means of sculpting souls took me years to understand

The leader of the Band is tired and his eyes are growing old
But his blood runs through my instrument and his song is in my soul
My life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man
I am just a living legacy to the leader of the Band

My brother's lives were different for they heard another call
One went to Chicago and the other to St. Paul
And I am in Colorado when I'm not in some hotel
Living out this life I've chose and come to know so well

I thank you for the music and your stories of the road
I thank you for the freedom when it came my time to go
I thank you for the kindness and the time when you got tough
And papa,I don't think I said I love you near enough

The leader of the Band is tired and his eyes are growing old
But his blood runs through my instrument and his song is in my soul
My life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man
I am just a living legacy to the leader of the Band
I am just a living legacy to the leader of the Band

:) :)

Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast,
How can I escape this irresistible grasp?

Can't keep my eyes from the circling sky
Tongue-tied and twisted, just an earth-bound misfit, I

Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
Unheeded warnings, I thought, I thought of everything
No navigator to find my way home
Unladen, empty and turned to stone
A soul in tension that's learning to fly
Condition grounded but determined to try

Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

[Spoken:]
Friction lock - set. Mixture - rich. Propellers - fully forward.
Flaps - set - 10 degree. Engine gauges and suction - check
Mixture set to maximum percent - recheck
Flight instruments...
Altimeters - check both
(garbled word) - on
Navigation lights - on
Strobes - on

(to tower): Confirm 3-8-Echo ready for departure
(tower): Hello again, this is now 129.4
(to tower): 129.4. It's to go.
(tower): You may commence your takeoff, winds over 10 knots.
(to tower): 3-8-Echo
Easy on the brakes. Take it easy. Its gonna roll this time.
Just hand the power gradually, and it...

Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air,
Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner of my watering eye
A dream unthreatened by the morning light
Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night

There's no sensation to compare with this
Suspended animation, a state of bliss

Can't keep my mind from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

Paul Simon~ from the GRACELAND LP (a masterpiece :))

The Boy in The Bubble

[video=youtube;Uy5T6s25XK4]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uy5T6s25XK4[/video]

It was a slow day
And the sun was beating
On the soldiers by the side of the road

There was a bright light
A shattering of shop windows
The bomb in the baby carriage
Was wired to the radio


These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all


The way we look to a distant constellation
That is dying in a corner of the sky
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don't cry baby, don't cry
Don't cry

Animatnotes.gif
It was a dry wind
And it swept across the desert
And it curled into the circle of birth

And the dead sand
Falling on the children
The mothers and the fathers
And the automatic earth


These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all, oh yeah


The way we look to a distant constellation
That is dying in a corner of the sky

These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don't cry baby, don't cry
Don't cry

Animatnotes.gif
It's a turn-around jump shot
It's everybody jump start
It's every generation throws a hero up the pop charts

Medicine is magical and magical is art
You know the boy in the bubble
And the baby with the baboon heart


And I believe
These are the days of lasers in the jungle
Lasers in the jungle somewhere

Staccato signals of constant information
A loose affiliation of millionaires
And billionaires and baby


These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all, oh yeah


The way we look to a distant constellation
Thatis dying in a corner of the sky
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don't cry baby, don't cry
Don't cry, don't cry
Don't cry

the best of the '80's for hub and myself, was our 'Spiritual-Conversion' and living for almost
the whole decade without electricity - back then, those were the best times of our lives!

oh my, Brothers and Sisters, the things that our Heavenly Father taught us, were/are, simply amazing...:):eek:

and for those of us who Love and Serve Him, the best is yet to come!...
