Courtney House of the Rising Sun is so good, prob my fav on the album. I also really like what you’ve done with About You Now. In my opinion, this is the way this song should’ve been sung. It gives it so much more meaning. You’ve made it such a sweet song :) Favorite track: House of the Rising Sun.

froggo24 I give the U2 cover an edge over the GM one at this time. I look forward to hearing the additional ten tracks, especially numbers 1, 5, 7 & 13 in full. Favorite track: With or Without You.

Andy Wheatley This is one of my all time favourite songs which no one has ever really had the courage to cover (or well at least)...until now! What a truly amazing version. Your voice is stunning, phenomenal and you have overwhelmingly done the song justice. Bono, Edge and the rest of the U2 boys would be very proud! Favorite track: With or Without You.

There is a house in New Orleans They call the Rising Sun And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy And God, I know I'm one My mother was a tailor She sewed my new blue jeans My father was a gamblin' man way Down in New Orleans Now the only thing a gambler needs Is a suitcase and a trunk And the only time he was satisfied when he’d drink his liquor down Oh mother, tell your children Not to do what I have done Spend your lives in sin and misery In the House of the Rising Sun Well, I got one foot on the platform The other foot on the train I'm goin' back to New Orleans To wear that ball and chain Well, there is a house in New Orleans They call the Rising Sun And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy And God, I know I'm one

We were born before the wind Also younger than the sun Ere the bonnie boat was won As we sailed into the mystic Hark, now hear the sailors cry Smell the sea and feel the sky Let your soul and spirit fly Into the mystic And when that fog horn blows I will be coming home, mmm mmm And when the fog horn blows I want to hear it I don't have to fear it and I wanna rock your gypsy soul Just like way back in the days of old Then magnificently we will float Into the mystic When that fog horn blows You know I will be coming home And when that fog horn whistle blows I gotta hear it I don't have to fear it And I wanna rock your gypsy soul Just like way back in the days of old And together we will float Into the mystic Come on girl Will they stop now .

sheets of empty canvas untouched sheets of clay were laid spread out before me as her body once did All five horizons revolved around her sun as the Earth to the Sun Now the air I tasted and breathed Has taken a turn ooo. ooh and all I taught her was everything mmmm. ooh, I know she gave me all that she was And now my bitter hands Chafe beneath the clouds Of what was everything Oh the pictures have All been washed in black Tattooed everything I take a walk outside I'm surrounded by Some kids at play I can feel their laughter So why do I sear Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin Round my head I'm spinning Oh, I'm spinning How quick the sun can, drop away And now my bitter hands Cradle broken glass Of what was everything All the pictures had All been washed in black Tattooed everything All the love gone bad Turned my world to black Tattooed all I see All that I am All I'll be Yeah I know someday you'll have a beautiful life I know you'll be a star In somebody else's sky But why Why Why can't it be Why can't it be mine

I want to break free I want to break free I want to break free from your lies You're so self satisfied I don't need you I've got to break free God knows, God knows I want to break free. I've fallen in love I've fallen in love for the first time And this time I know it's for real I've fallen in love, yeah God knows, God knows I've fallen in love. It's strange but it's true I can't get over the way you love me like you do But I have to be sure When I walk out that door Oh how I want to be free, baby V Oh how I want to be free, Oh how I want to break free. But life still goes on I can't get used to, living without, living without, Living without you by my side I don't want to live alone, hey God knows, got to make it on my own So baby can't you see I've got to break free. I've got to break free I want to break free, yeah I want, I want, I want, I want to break free.

Here comes the rain again Falling on my head like a memory Falling on my head like a new emotion I want to walk in the open wind I want to talk like lovers do I want to dive into your ocean Is it raining with you So baby talk to me (So TALK TO ME) Like lovers do Walk with me Like lovers do Talk to me Like lovers do Here comes the rain again Raining in my head like a tragedy Tearing me apart like a new emotion I want to breathe in the open wind I want to kiss like lovers do I want to dive into your ocean Is it raining with you So baby JUST TALK TO ME Like lovers do Walk with me Like lovers do Talk to me Like lovers do

It was so easy that night. Should've been strong, yeah, I lied. Nobody gets me like you. I know everything changes. All the cities and faces. But I know h ow I feel about you. Can we bring yesterday back around 'Cause I know how I feel about you now? I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down, But I know how I feel about you now. All that it takes: one more chance. Don't let our last kiss be our last. Give me tonight, and I'll show you. I know everything changes. I don't care where it takes us 'Cause I know how I feel about you. Can we bring yesterday back around 'Cause I know how I feel about you now? I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down, But I know how I feel about you now. Not a day pass me by, Not a day pass me by, When I don't think about you. And there's no moving on 'Cause I know you're the one, And I can't be without you. Can we bring yesterday back around 'Cause I know how I feel about you now? I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down, But I know how I feel about you now. Can we bring yesterday back around 'Cause I know how I feel about you now? I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down, But I know how I feel about you now. But I know how I feel about you now. Yes, I know how I feel about you now.

Someone told me long ago There's a calm before the storm I know it's been comin' for some time When it's over so they say It'll rain a sunny day I know shinin' down like water I want to know Have you ever seen the rain? I want to know Have you ever seen the rain Comin' down on a sunny day? Yesterday and days before Sun is cold and rain is hard I know been that way for all my time 'Til forever, on it goes Through the circle, fast and slow, I know it can't stop, I wonder

Many rivers to cross But I can't seem to find my way over Wandering I am lost, as I travel along The white cliffs of Dover Many rivers to cross, and it's only my will That keeps me alive I've been licked, washed up for years, and I merely survive because of my pride. And this loneliness won't leave me alone It's such a drag to be in on your own My woman left me and she didn't say why Well I guess, I’ve gotta try. Many rivers to cross, but where to begin, I'm playing for time There'll be times when I find myself, thinking of committing some, some dreadful crime Wandering I am lost as I travel along The white cliffs of Dover Many rivers to cross and it's only my will That keeps me alive I've got many rivers to cross But I can't seem to find my way over
