I like a good song when I'm drinking or just a tune to contemplate life with...what are your fav's...

One of my all time "I wanna be alone tunes" is...

Simon And Garfunkel Lyrics - Slip Sliding Away Lyrics

Chorus:
Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away

Whoah and I know a man, he came from my hometown
He wore his passion for his woman like a thorny crown
He said Dolores, I live in fear
My love for you's so overpowering, I'm afraid that I will disappear

chorus

I know a woman, (who) became a wife
These are the very words she uses to describe her life
She said a good day ain't got no rain
She said a bad day is when I lie in the bed
And I think of things that might have been

chorus

And I know a father who had a son
He longed to tell him all the reasons for the things he'd done
He came a long way just to explain
He kissed his boy as he lay sleeping
Then he turned around and he headed home again

chorus

Whoah God only knows, God makes his plan
The information's unavailable to the mortal man
We're workin' our jobs, collect our pay
Believe we're gliding down the highway, when in fact we're slip sliding away

Hurt played by Johnny Cash (orginally a Nine Inch Nails song, but Cash did it so much better).

Lyrics:

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hold
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My ssweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

Floater - The Sad Ballad of Danny Boy


That's right my name is Danny Boy and I like to drink at night.
I go down to the pub, wherein I buy myself a pind or three.
I like to go out drinking, 'cause beer it is my life,
until I come home and lay eyes upon my darling wife.
And they say
Oh Danny, won't you go home earlier tonight?
Your daugher doesn't know you
and your giving us a fright when you say...
Say, something's wrong with anyone who's not lik eme.
With you the violence just comes so easily.
You never learn I have to teach you constantly.
Hush now.
That's right my name is Danny Boy and I'll buy another round.
Then off to the marked when this place closes down.
I say drinking's always done when the sun's up in the sky.
The sun is always up somwhere,
and it's your turn to buy and they say,
Oh, Danny, won't you go home earlier tonight?
Your son he doesn't know you and your giving us a fright when you say
Say, somthing's wrong with anyone who's not like me.
With you the violence just comes so easily.
You never learn I have to teach you constantly.
Hush now.
Hush now.
Sleep.
Sleep floating child.
..This is affectionate.
