There are a couple of lines I couldn't discern in "When Your'e Gone" and "Hell Frozen Rain." If anyone has any ideas, please share.

Note. "Acceptance" is deliberately typed to emulate the style of Emily Dickinson.

~~~~~~~

“Always on my Mind”
Maybe I didn’t love you quite as often as I could have,
And maybe I didn’t treat you quite as good as I should have.
If I made you feel second best, I’m so sorry I was blind.
You were always on my mind.

Maybe I didn’t hold you all those lonely, lonely times,
And I guess I never told you I’m so happy that you’re mine.
Little things I should have said and done—I just never took the time.
You were always on my mind.

Tell me that your sweet love hasn’t died.
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied.

~~~~~~~

“When You’re Gone”
Did I wait too long? Moments gone—they’re now wasted.
Coming back to home—it feels wrong: changes haunt me.
And the pain before leave me lost, confused, searching.
Everything I own takes me back nowhere.

Objects in my room—they might be telling me something soon.
Still you ask me how I feel. I feel lost—that’s how I feel.

I know there’s something I’ve forgotten—like a time, a place, a shattered memory.
For me, it’s more than I can seem to handle: It’s the pain my mind is writing on the wall.
The truth, you lie—you said it can’t convince you to give up.
This place will never set me free. Enough, I know. I really did it this time.
It’s a sign: This place is somewhere I should be.

Taking a piece of my heart when you’re gone.

Are my eyes too blind to find illusions find deep inside?—Probing.
What I’d lost to find and what I find brings me here

Taking a piece of my heart—that’s how it always starts—when you’re gone.

~~~~~~~

“Acceptance”
Time flows. —Nobody knows. The years go by:
where we go—a home—from here—
Night falls—strange colored walls: My eyes deceive what is wrong with me.
Deep in the night you think everything’s right.
Tell it to yourself—say it’s just a nightmare.
Something is telling you nothing can change where you are again.
Why should it matter?—your dreams of a child—
Innocence is gone—only fear to play with—
Faces are changing but nothing is changing the pain. —Too late.—

Two steps I take get closer and closer and one more breath I take sends me further back.

Over and over it calls to your soul—say it isn’t so—Emptiness surrounds you.
No one can help if the angels refuse to come here. —Who’s there?—
Cold faded photos they—lie by your side, something in my room, —never mind the reason.
—Visions are lying and reasons just live to survive this time
The cold to light. —The fear returning.
It’s not the eyes. —The fear is chilling you.

~~~~~~~

“Hell Frozen Rain”
In your mind's eye lives a memory hard to find, blinded by sorrow.
And her cold voice sings a melody—hear her sing, "Hell frozen rain falls down."

She can't hear your voice. She can't hear you call. You have earned your choice.
If you're here can you prove you're really here?
There is a moment in time when all the cards that you play divide.
You feel the temperature dive and all your demons inside come crashing through.

In your mind's eye lives a memory hard to find, blinded by sorrow.
And a strange voice sings a melody, hear it sing, "Hell frozen rain falls down."

Everything is wrong. This is not my home, is it?
Do I know your face? Does my mind wish to forget?
A toast to lonely souls who never could take control of life;
and all the missin' we love—I hope our darkness we fight will give them light.

In your mind's eye lives a memory hard to find, blinded by pain.
And a cold voice sings a melody—hear it sing, "Hell frozen rain."
Our safe hearts—feeling dangerous. Missing tooth—frozen in lies.
Is your family just a memory?
Once again, "Hell frozen rain falls down."

Of all these pieces of broken dreams, there's one that scares and confuses me.
If all these things that you say are true, you should be someone I always knew.

In your mind's eye lies a memory hard to find, blinded by pain.
And your father sings a melody—hear him sing, "Hell frozen rain."
Our safe hearts—feeling dangerous. Missing tooth—frozen in lies.
Are your loved ones just a memory?
Burning pain, "Hell frozen rain falls down."

Life is cold here—empty hallowed ground. In my head, blood-colored rain falls down.

I'm fairly certain that she says "from deep inside", though it almost sounds as if she says "hung"... but that wouldn't make much sense.

Reading these lyrics, I'm almost convinced that either [spoiler]Cheryl is a figment of Harry's imagination, made to cope with the isolation of being an alcoholic[/spoiler] or, hell, even [spoiler]Harry is a figment of Cheryl's imagination![/spoiler]

Missing truth.

Why a thread devoted just for some lyrics. . .? Nothing against you Tom, I'm just saying.

sir its actually swiss cheese heart nose!!!
...but like if you don't know that the lyric implies a heart with holes in it then I am vastly distraught.

The point is "missing tooth" makes little sense and "missing truth" is more appropriate—Mary's voice is unintelligible at times so sometimes it's better to just go with what sounds right.

"Missing truth—frozen in lies" doesn't make sense, either. I don't deny the word is probably "truth," but I hear "tooth."

"When you're gone"

"And the pain before... leave me lost, confused, searching"

It sounds like that to me

What the hell did they do to "Always on my mind"?! What, Akira ran out of ideas, Christ... Definately didn't like that one :( Stick to your own songs man, like you used to. I love Akira's music for SH, but although I'm not a fan of Elvis, Akira totally ruined that song for me.

Umm....is it just me or do these Lyrics not play during my version of the song. It goes into "Hell frozen Rain" just before this part of the track.

Real talk. . . ? You should culture yourself more.

>Umm....is it just me or do these Lyrics not play during my version of the song
Those lyrics won't play in "Hell Frozen Rain" b/c they're not in "Hell Frozen Rain". . . .

Nitpicking:
Well, it's neither persons' song. It was written and performed originally by a separate group of people and both Elvis and Nelson had pretty well received versions. Elvis recorded his version of the song before Nelson did.

Sorry let me clarify. On my version of the track "Acceptance" those lyrics don't play. It goes right into "Hell Frozen Rain" just before those lyrics supposedly play.

To be a bigger Nitpicker, It was actually recorded originally by Brenda Lee in 1972.

Your version is undoubtedly incomplete, then.
