Song Lyric Sunday Theme: Could, Might, Should & Would

Went to a doctor, said “I look so hard”
And with a smile on his face, pointed me to a junkyard
Look for an answer in empty doorways
Talked to a dancer, said “It’s out on the highways”
Well come on, Doctor, won’t you gimme a shot?
I’m feeling cold boy, feeling hot
Doctor said, “No, boy, you gotta learn
First I’ll shoot up and then it’s your turn”

Well, anything could happen and it could be right now
And the choice is yours to make it worthwhile
Anything could happen and it could be right now
And the choice is yours, so make it worthwhile

Make the cancellation and I got numb
I haven’t the motivation to get myself a gun
Look for an answer in empty doorways
Talked to a dancer, said “It’s out on the highway”
Well, here I am in the big city
I got no heart and I got no pity
Can’t you see I’m on the run?
Can’t you see I’m not having any fun?

Anything could happen and it could be right now
And the choice is yours to make it worthwhile
Anything could happen and it could be right now
And the choice is yours, so make it worthwhile

Anything Could Happen by The Clean 

If I take a walk down by the riverside

You might wind up drowning

With your hands all tied

Might take a fall, could break your neck

You just don’t know what you might expect

Yes you just might fade away

You might wake up in the afternoon

Wearing someone else’s clothes

Lyin’ in the heap on the corner of All Saints Road

Dreaming of somebody special

Dreaming of somebody new

Watching that somebody disappear

Cos they can’t stand you

And yes, you just might fade away

A 100 dollar room on the 21st floor

A “Do not disturb” sign, I hang it on the door

Think of giving it up, think of settling down

Think of what it would be like to be homeward-bound

Yes you just might fade away

Better keep down your voice

Cos someone might hear

Getting a little careless aren’t you

Leavin’ clues everywhere

If it’s not a burnt matchstick

It’s a cigarette butt

If it’s not a greasy fingerprint

It’s a trailer that died of love

Yes you just might fade away

Yes you just might fade away

Just Might Fade Away by The Triffids

Instrumental

I Really Should’ve Gone Out Last Night by Dirty Three

If I fell into confusion
Got scared but couldn’t say
If I lost my rhyme and reason
And threw away the gift of grace
Would you be my friend?

If they said I don’t deserve you
That my credit was no good
If they told you I’m not worthy of your love
And you should cut me like you cut dead wood
Would you be my friend?

And if you heard that I was on the town
Pissing loudly on your name
Would you find me, would you face me down?
Though your ears burned with shame
Would you be my friend?

And if I said I wished I’d never been born
And my mouth could only curse
If I’d passed the point of no return
Like a poor, puking child in church
Would you be my friend?
My only friend

Would You Be My Friend? by Paul Kelly

Here’s something I’ve not done for well over 12 months! I think, you are suppose to just do one song that fits easy into one of the words? Could or Might or Should or Would but how my head works is it just goes into thinking what song have each of those four different words in the song title? Then I couldn’t just pick one of them myself so here’s all four for you to chose one, if you’ve not got the time or something for all of them? My comeback post for this Sunday, I’ve made up my own rule for myself that’s it’s Aussie and Kiwi acts only! Which might sound like that’s making it even harder but it’s very easy for myself. Most listeners/followers who know me a bit, most likely are thinking to themselves: is he going on about these artists again? But they’re all tracks I’ve not posted before at least for a longtime!

Joining last time I did do this, I remember it was Helen running the Song Lyric Sunday Theme group but it’s Jim now! Hello mate and everyone else, I’m back this weekend and does anyone remember me? I hope you all don’t mind all my southern hemisphere picks and bending the rules too? Anyway let’s see if I can make the ping back work because I’ve not done that for a long time too? I might not join in every weekend but it was fun this time so maybe that’s a good reason to do it sometime sooner again?

  1. Anything Could Happen…absolutely brilliant song, very catchy and never gets old.

    I am not so familiar with the others, but like the Triffids. This Paul Kelly song I am also not familiar with but keen to have a listen now. Hope you have a good week. Cheers

    1. Well, i really have no idea where those places are? Other than both are in the UK somewhere? they’re close to each other? Maybe, i could google maps it or something? but just guessing, it will look a little different now?

      Cheers 🙂
