I Got Id
          Time: 4:53
          Vedder
          From the single "Merkin Ball"

My lips are shaking my nails are bit off.
Been a month since I've heard myself talk.
All the advantage this life's got on me.
Picture a cup in the middle of the sea.

And I fight back in my mind. Never lets me right out.
I got memories. I got shit so much it don't show.

Oh, I walked the lie when you held me in that night.
I walked the line when you held my hand that night.

On empty shell seem so easy to crack.
Got all these questions. Don't know who I could even ask.
So I'll just lie alone and wait for the dream where I'm not ugly and your looking at me.

And I stay in bed. Oh, in a little while I'll see you.
If just once I could feel love, oh, stare back at me. Yeah.

But I walked the lie when you held me in that night.
Oh, I walked the lie when you held my hand that night.
Oh, I walked the lie when you held me close that night.
I paid the price. Never held you in real life.
My lips are shaking...


Long Road
          Time: 5:59
          Vedder
          From the single "Merkin Ball"

And I wished for so long. Cannot stay.
All the precious moments. Cannot stay.
It's not like wings have fallen. Cannot stay.
But still something's missing. I cannot say, yeah.

Holding hands are daughters and sons.
And their faiths are falling down, down, down, down.
I have wished for so long. How I wish for you today.

Will I walk the long road? (the long road) Cannot stay. (the long road)
There's no need to say goodbye. (to say goodbye)

All the friends and family.
All the memories going round, round, round, round.
I have wished for so long. How I wish for you today.

And the wind keeps roaring. And the sky keeps turning grey.
And the sun is set. The sun will rise another day.

I...

I have wished for so long. How I wish for you today.
I have wished for so long. How I wish for you today.

Will I walk the long road? We all walk the long road.
Will I walk the long road? We all walk the long road.
Will I walk the long road?
Will I walk the long road? We all walk the long road.
Will I walk the long road? We all walk the long road.
Will I walk the long road?

Like an angel fly over your house

I am close but can't enjoy
Oh I'm not dyin'
Oh I'm so tortured 'cause I see all
Tortured and all I cannot do
Tortured all I should have done
Tortured while I occupied a man
I'm not livin' what was promised
I am far from glorified
Oh I'm not dyin'
Oh I'm not alone
Mind is not a celestial state with idle hymns of praise
Time is short I have an appointment at noon at noon in Hell
Across the waste of space and fields of air I glide alone at night
Oh please please think of me 'cause I'm I'm by your side
I'm by your side I'm by your side oh

History Never Repeats
          Time: :
          N. Finn
          From the 1995 Holiday single

History never repeats
I tell myself before I go to sleep
Don't say the words you might regret
I lost before, you know I can't forget
There was a girl I used to know
She dealt my love a savage blow
I was so young, too blind to see
But anyway, that's history
And I say, history never repeats
I tell myself before I go to sleep
And there's a light shining in the dark
Leading me on towards a change of heart
You say I always play the fool
I can't go on if that's the rule
Better to jump than hesitate
I need a change and I can't wait
I say, history never repeats
I tell myself before I go to sleep
And there's a light shining in the dark
Leading me on towards a change of heart
Never repeats, whoa, oh
History never repeats (x2)
Deep in the night it's all so clear
I lie awake with great ideas
Looking about in no man's land
I think at last I understand
History never repeats
I tell myself before I go to sleep
And there's a light shining in the dark
Leading me on towards a change of heart
Ahhh

Swallow My Pride
          Time: :
          Arm, Turner
          From the 1995 Holiday single

She looked at me with dignity said
"There's something you got to see if you know we're headed for war this country's prouder than ever before
Yes there's a spirit in the air we're more American than anywhere"
Well I just smiled 'cause I could tell this little girl's going to Hell
Now I wouldn't mind if you swallowed my pride
Would make me feel alright deep inside feel alright
All the warmth in her heart can't keep my blood from running cold
Keep my blood from running cold
First I fell for her looks now I just wanna go for the throat
I tried to tell her a hundred times this little girl didn't understand at all
Pride comes before a fall
Now I wouldn't mind if you swallowed my pride
Make me feel alright deep inside feel alright Ohh
This ain't the Garden of Eden
This ain't the summer of love
Things ain't what they used to be
There ain't no angels above
Whoa
Ain't the Garden of Eden
Ain't no angels above
Things ain't what they used to be
This ain't the summer of love


My Way
          Time: :
          Akka, Fransic, Revaux, Thibault
          From the 1995 Holiday single

And out isn't perfect
My friends I'll say it too
Stay my case of which I'm certain
I've lived a life as full
I've traveled each and every highway
Oh and more as more gets
I did it my way
Regrets I've had a few
But they're too few to mention
I did what I had
It's all through without exemption
I play each charted course
I've traveled each and every byway
And more much more than this
I did it my way
Well twice I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
I knew it all without a doubt
I ate it up and I had to spit it out
I passed it on and I stood tall
And I did it my way


Olympic Platinum
          Time: :
          Didia
          From the 1996 Holiday single

If I could reach to the sky and touch it for my country
Get some on my finger and take in its smell
The smell of victory land of the free Olympic dream
My Olympic dream
My promotion scheme
How hard can it be
How high can I jump
How high can I throw
How high can I run
How high can I hold my breath and stay underwater
and wave my legs around in perfect unison with my partner who really doesn't understand me
For my Olympic dream
I'll be like Dwight Stone
I'll be like Bruce Jenner
I'll be like that girl who trained all her life as a distance runner and then tripped with a quarter mile to go
But I I will get up and I will run
I will run with the Georgia peach breeze and I will win
I will win my Olympic dream
The gold's just not good enough
And I don't even think of the bronze
I've ????? my life for Olympic Platinum
Olympic dream
I'll sing like Whitney
My Olympic dream


Smile (live)
          Time: :
          Ament, Vedder
          From the 1996 Holiday single

Uh como se desa smile?
Don't it make you smile (x2)
When the sun don't shine
Yea don't it make you smile
Don't it make you smile
Yea don't it make you smile yea
When the sun don't shine it don't shine at all yea
Don't it make you smile
I miss you already I miss you always
I miss you already yea yea I miss you all day
And this is how I feel
I miss you already yea I miss you always always
Three crooked hearts swirls all around yea
I miss you always always
Don't it make you smile
Three crooked hearts swirls all around yea
Don't it make you smile


Happy When I'm Crying
          Time: :
          Irons
          From the 1997 Holiday single

Eí per noi un piacere augurarvi insieme
Ai R.E.M. un buon cetriolo
(It is a pleasure for us to wish you, together
with R.E.M., a merry cucumber)

I need a song to help along
When it feels wrong it seems so long
To get to the light
We live in homes talk on phones
Hear the tones can you hold
Moving fast as light TV's on at night
Does peace come out of fighting
Can truths come out of lying
I'm happy when I'm crying
If reality is what I see newspapers mag-azines TV
Tell's what's going on leading us along
It's not absurd to all get heard
Put our feelings into words
You have to reach inside no feelings to hide
Does peace from out of fighting
Can truth come out of lying
I'm happy when I'm crying
Bring children into the world
We couldn't have done it by ourselves
Stop and wonder why
There's more than meets the eye
Somewhere inside I did believe
I can't belong I was wrong
I have gained insight
I will see the light
Truth isn't lying
Peace isn't fighting
Love isn't dying


Live For Today
          Time: 3:06
          Berry, Buck, Mills, Stipe, Riedl
          Song performed by "REM"
          From the 1997 Holiday single

You had this bright idea one late summer night.
Candy-coated popcorn strung like a beaded curtain hung over your door.
I guess the heat got to it, dripped and melted all over the floor.
Chocolate-covered cherries in tin foil boats float around the floorboard.
I had to laugh not to cry.
Now all your possessions, all of your things, all of your hopes, schemes, desires, all of your dreams.
All gone away.
"Live for today", you said, "live for today".
I had to laugh not to cry.


Soldier Of Love
          Time: :
          Cason, Moon
          From the 1998 Holiday single,
          the Last Kiss single,
          and the No Boundaries Benefit album.

Lay down your arms and surrender to me.
Oh lay down your arms and love me peacefully. Yea.
Use your arms for squezing and please I'm the one that loves you so.
Oh there ain't no reason for you to declare war on the one who loves you so.
So forget the other boys because my love is real.
Come off your battlefield.
Lay down your arms and surrender to me.
Yea lay down your arms and love me peacefully. Yea.
Use your arms for squezing and please cuse that's the way it has to be.
The weapons you're using are hurting me bad.
But someday you're going to retreat.
Cause my love baby is the truest you've ever had.
A soldier of love that's hard to beat.
Lay down your arms and surrender to me.
Lay down your arms and love me peacefully. Yea.
Use your arms to hold me tight. Baby I don't wanna fight no more. (x2)
Oh baby, lay down your arms. (x7)
Please baby lay down your arms.


Last Kiss
          Time: :
          Cochran
          From the 1998 Holiday single,
          the Last Kiss single,
          and the No Boundaries Benefit album.

Oh where oh where can my baby be
The lord took her away from me
She's gone to heaven so I got to be good
So I can see my baby when I leave this world
We were out on a date in my daddy's car
We hadn't driven very far
There in the road strait up there
A car was stalled the engine was dead
I couldn't stop so I swerved to the right
I'll never forget the sound that night
The screaming tires the busting glass
The painful scream that I heard last
Oh where oh where can my baby be
The lord took her away from me
She's gone to heaven so I got to be good
So I can see my baby when I leave this world
When I woke up the rain was pouring down
There were people standing all around
Something warm flowing through my eyes
But somehow I found my baby that night
I lifted her head she looked at me and said
Hold me darling just a little while
I held her close I kissed her our last kiss
I found the love that I knew I had missed
Well now she's gone even though I hold her tight
I lost my love my life that night
Oh where oh where can my baby be
The lord took her away from me
She's gone to heaven so I got to be good
So I can see my baby when I leave this world
Woh (x4)
Ohh (x4)


Strangest Tribe
          Time: :
          Gossard
          From the 1999 Holiday single.

It's five below in evidence.
The winded eves and sideways snow.
His eminence has yet to show.

Follow the ageless tide.
Follow the angled light.
Follow the strangest tribe.
I... I... I...

It's 6:00 AM. You're waiting for...
You've had your feast. You're wanting more.

Follow the wayward mile.
Follow the distant high.
Follow the strangest tribe.
I... I... I...

Follow the ancient stripe.
Follow the angels try.
Follow the strangest tribe.
I... I... I...


Drifting
          Time: :
          Vedder
          From the 1999 Holiday single.

Drifting, drifting, drifting away.
I got myself a mansion, then I gave it away.
It's not the world that's heavy, just the things that you save.
And I'm drifting, drifting away.

Drifting, drifting, drifting along.
I rid myself of worries, and the worries were gone.
I only run when I want to and I sleep like a dog.
I'm just drifting, drifting along.

The suitcoats say, "There is money to be made."
They get so damn excited, but I guess it's their way.
My road it may be lonely just because it's not paved.
It's good for drifting, drifting away.

The suitcoats say, "There is money to be made."
They get so damn excited, nothing gets in their way
My road it may be lonely just because it's not paved.
It's good for drifting, drifting away.

Drifting, drifting, drifting, uh huh.
I feel like going back there, but never for long.
I sometimes wonder if they know that I'm gone.
I'm just drifting, drifting along.
Drifting, drifting along. Drifting, drifting along.

Merry Christmas...


Crown Of Thorns
          Time: :
          Wood, Mother Love Bone
          From the 2000 Holiday single.

You ever hear the story of Mr. faded glory?
Say, "He who rides a pony must someday fall."
I was talking to my alter.
Says life is what you make it and if you make it death.
Well, rest your soul away. Away. Away.

It's a broken kind of feeling.
She'll have to tie me to the ceiling.
A bad moon's coming better say your prayers.
I want to tell you that I love you. But does it really matter?
I just can't stand to see you dragging down again. Again. Again, yeah.

So I'm singing and this is my kind of love.
It's the kind that moves on.
It's the kind that leaves you alone. Yeah.
Oh, this is my kind of love.
It's the kind that moves on.
It's the kind that leaves me alone.

I used to treat you like a lady.
Now you're my substitute teacher.
This bottle's not a pretty, not a pretty sight.
I owe a man some money so I'm turning over, honey.
Ah, Mr. faded glory is once again doing time. Oh yeah.

This is my kind of love.
It's the kind that moves on.
It's the kind that leaves me alone. Yeah.
This is my kind of love.
It's the kind that moves on.
It's the kind that, it's the kind that, leaves me alone. Yeah.

Like a crown of thorns it's all who you know.
So don't burn your bridges because someday yeah.

So I'm singing this is my kind of love.
It's the kind that moves on.
It's the kind that leaves me alone. Yeah.
Oh, this is my kind of love.
It's the kind that moves on.
It's the kind that leaves me alone.

Don't burn your bridges.


Can't Help Falling In Love Again
          Time: :
          Weiss, Peretti, Creatore
          From the 2000 Holiday single.

Wise men say, "Only fools rush in."
But I can't help falling in love with you.
Until I stay. Would it be a sin?
If I can't help falling in love with you.
Like a river flows surely to the sea.
Darling so it goes, some things are meant to be.

Oh take my hand. Take my whole life too.
Because I can't help falling in love with you.
And I can't help falling in love with you.
