Mmhmm, mmhmm

I can see it in your eyes and feel it in your touch
I know that you're scared, but you've never been this loved (mmhmm)
It's a long shot, baby, I know it's true
But if anyone can make it, I'm betting on me and you (mmhmm)
Just keep on moving into me
I know you're gonna see
The best is yet to come

And don't fear it now, we're going all the way
Where that sun is shining on a brand new day
It's a long way down, and it's a leap of faith
But I'm never giving up
'Cause I know we got a once in a lifetime love, oh-ooh

Everybody's looking for what we've found
Some wait their whole life and it never comes around, uh-huh
So don't hold back now
Just let go of all you've ever known
You can put your hand in mine

And don't fear it now, we're going all the way
Where that sun is shining on a brand new day
It's a long way down, and it's a leap of faith
But I'm never giving up
'Cause I know we got a once in a lifetime love

I close my eyes, and I see you standing right there
Saying, "I do," and they're throwing the rice in our hair
Yeah, the first one's born and a brother comes along, and he's got your smile
I'll be looking back on the life we had still by your side

So don't fear it now, we're going all the way
Where that sun is shining on a brand new day
It's a long way down, and it's a leap of faith
But I'm never giving up, no
And don't fear it now, I'll never let you go (oh, I'll never let you go)
When you're by my side, I know I made it home
It's a long way down, and it's a leap of faith
But I'm never giving up
'Cause I know we got a once in a lifetime love

Lifetime love
Ooh, oh
It's a lifetime love, oh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh
Oh, oh

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Step
Ministry
Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.
