The Canadian pair got the fairytale ending to their Olympic career as ice dancers this week when they claimed gold in the ice dancing.Moir and Virtue have been skating together since they were nine and seven and they had retired in 2016 before deciding to make a comeback for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics for one last chance at glory.With a chemistry on the ice that leaves us with the vapours, the pair have won a legion of followers who have gone so far as to write fan-fiction about them being together.Expect the big-budget drama about their careers to sweep the Oscars in 2021 with Ryan Gosling and Emma Watson in the lead roles.And if that’s not enough to put a smile on your face, how about some very skilled athletes crash and burning?

U2 – Another Time, Another Place (early mix) Lyrics

Bright morning lights
Wipe the sleep from another day’s eye
Turn away from the wall
And there’s nothing at all
Feeling naked and afraid
In the open space of my bed
I’ll be with you now
Oh no no
I’ll be with you now
Oh oh oh
I’ll be with you now
Oh no no
We lie on a cloud
We lie
Just as I am
I awoke with a tear on my tongue
I awoke with a feeling
Of never before
In my sleep I discovered the one
Who had run with the morning sun
I’ll be with you now
Oh no no
I’ll be with you now
Oh oh oh
I’ll be with you now
Oh no no
We lie on a cloud
We lie
Another time, another place
We lay
Another feeling without trace
We lay
Another time, another place
We lay
Another child has lost the race
We lie
Another time, another place
We lay
Another feeling with
I never had before
I never lost it before
I never knew what it was
Too bad I set you right here
I never had it before
I never lost it before
I never knew
I never understand
How I started to feel
We lay
Another time, another place
We lie
Another child has lost the race

U2 – All In The Light Lyrics

City street lights and I walked away
Don’t leave me standing in the cold
Cigarette lights, feel my finger alight
I need to be alone
She can take you tonight
She can make you, that’s alright
She can break you tonight
Don’t missunderstand
Cigarette girls throw his head in a whirl
To be a superman
All of her girls, there must be a glimpse
I’m drinking all I can
We can take it tonight
We can make it, that’s right
We can break it tonight
Don’t missunderstand
The light
Alone in the light
Alone in the light
Alone in the light
In the city at night
She can take it tonight
She can make you, that’s right
She can break you tonight
Don’t missunderstand
Please take my hand
Alone in the light
Alone in the light
Alone in the light
In the city at night
We roam the streets in the morning light
We held our head in our hands
Alone in the light
Alone in the light
Alone in the light
In the city at night

Sy Ari Da Kid – Before & After (Intro) Lyrics

Like, this my bae, this my boo
And I love that he so different
He so deep, he loves his son
He’s so musically inclined, like I love him
He’s so, you don’t have time for me
He don’t have time for me, why? [Intro]
Hi, my baby, I miss you
And I’m blowing up your phone ’cause I’m drunk, I’m sorry, bye
You don’t answer when I call or anytime I’m with you
That’s what I wanna say in your face
Sy, you don’t, I don’t have you though
I know you fuck bitches, I know you fuck hoes
I don’t care about those hoes
I just don’t trust you anymore
I feel like I don’t even know you
I love you, I do
I can’t just, I just can’t do this anymore, Sy
I can’t, I can’t do this
It’s a time where you have to either be honest to my face, look
You’re either gonna be with me and I’m gonna cheat on you on some other bitches
Or if you’re not gonna be honest like that, you have got to commit and be loyal to one good girl
‘Cause you are a great guy
You’re so talented, you’re a great father
You’re very passionate, you’re very, when you wanna be
But you can’t, you can’t keep living this life but if you’re gonna live it, you need to be [?] as fuck and be honest with these hoes
Don’t keep leading these bitches on ’cause I’m not gonna lie
I feel like I was lead on
The whole year I loved you and liked you and felt like, yo, like, Sy Ari Da Kid
Like, we first started talking, what? ‘Cause he’s with his son
He didn’t have time for me, why? ‘Cause he’s recording
Because he’s so focused on his music like
He’s not being right, no, bitch
He’s with other hoes
Like now is my decision to fuck with you or not

Logic – Overnight Lyrics

[Intro]
Yeah, maybe this should just be the intro, like this
That’s it, squad, bitch
[Verse 1]
All these bad bitches say they love me, I already know
Check the, check the ring that’s on my finger ’cause I’m married, ho
There he go, everybody know that boy pockets is swole
What’s good? That sound familiar, never been here before
Life good, ’cause I just got quoted two hundred a show
Oh no, oh no, two hundred a show
Overnight, all this money that I’ve been makin’, I gave it right back
To all of the people that made me, you know we like that
Don’t know why your bitch wanna date me, but I can’t fight that
Guess you ain’t done shit for her lately, not on the right track
If I think that shit sound good I gotta write that
Weed man knockin’ on the door, I’ll be right back
Pass the shit to 6ix, watch him light that
Hit the studio, record the shit, then mix the shit, then master it
And then we do the show and they recite that
Bitch, I’m right back, told ’em ’bout my life, told ’em ’bout my life
Told ’em I was broke as fuck too many nights
Now I see my name up on so many lights, but everybody prolly think this shit done happened, happened, happened
[Chorus]
Overnight, people think this how this shit happened, but they never right
Acting like they got it, they got it, but they never quite
Seem to understand that this right here deeper than all that
Hustlin’ the streets that they trap over–over–overnight
People think this how this shit happened, but they never right
Acting like they got it, they got it, but they never quite seem to understand that this right here deeper than all that
Hustlin’ the streets like they trappin’ and burnin’ (woo, woo)
[Bridge 1]
Tell me how you really feel, how you really feel
All they ever do is hate the boy, but now they know the name
Tell me how you really feel, how you really feel
All they ever do is hate the boy, but now I run the game
Tell me how you really feel, how you really feel
You can hate now all you want, but shit won’t ever be the same
Tell me how you really feel, how you really feel
You can hate me, but I’m not the reason that your life is lame
[Verse 2]
Tell me, is it really so hard? (woo)
I treated everybody with respect and now I’m rich (woo)
I treated everybody with respect
Maybe you got issues with your daddy, though
Maybe you was bullied back in high school
Maybe you are just a tool
[Bridge 2]
Maybe you’re the reason, you’re the reason
The reason I don’t fuck with nobody, and
Maybe you’re the reason, you’re the reason
The reason I came up with nobody, and
Maybe you’re the reason, you’re the reason
Everybody think this right here happened
[Chorus]
Overnight, people think this how this shit happened, but they never right
Acting like they got it, they got it, but they never quite
Seem to understand that this right here deeper than all that
Hustlin’ the streets that they trap over–over–overnight
People think this how this shit happened, but they never right
Acting like they got it, they got it, but they never quite seem to understand that this right here deeper than all that
Hustlin’ the streets like they trappin’ and burnin’ down, shit Really so hard, to stop acting like a bitch? Really so hard, to be a good person? Tell me, is it really so hard?

MoStack – What I Wanna Lyrics

[Intro]
Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah
ILLBLU
You know I party with savages
In the club and I rass up the cannabis
Rass and rass and rass ’em
[Chorus]
I think I lost my mind, I can’t find that shit
I’m reckless in this life I live
I don’t think sometimes
I don’t even know why, baby I just live my life
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
Baby gyal I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
[Verse 1]
I like to kiss and cuddle and what? Still a baddaman pon da baddaman block
Big ass jacket in Dubai, don’t ask why
Pass me the keys let me drive
Cah you’ve been smoking too much skunk
Plus I drive better when I’m drunk
I treat the car like a go-kart
Wouldn’t-a bust that red light if I was sober
I don’t respect my olders
I do what I want you can’t tell me no
I said I’m gonna be a star girl I told you so
Don’t be that guy that owes me dough
Send my ‘ooter down there with the chrome-y chrome
She’s like “when are you free?”
Never bitch I cost, if you drop out me
That’s your loss, I switch countries like I switch socks
Pull up, pull up when I drop that gloss
[Chorus]
I think I lost my mind, I can’t find that shit
I’m reckless in this life I live
I don’t think sometimes
I don’t even know why, baby I just live my life
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
Baby gyal I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
[Verse 2]
I saw this gyal at the zebra crossing
Black and white girl man it felt like a zebra crossing (yo shawty)
She said “can I get a lift?”
My girl with the lisp, said can I get a kiss
Indian gyal said I’m a bloody ghost
‘Cause all I do is hola then I adiós
Hit the Caribbean store for some curry goat
She said my meat taste good so she sucked the bone
I’m with a white girl, dancing with some stamina
She a wine to bashment while I’m grabbing her
She be moving like she’s got some black in her
That was before I put my black in her
I’m living so single and free
I sit comfy, knowing no-one’s cheating on me
My gyal even put her arms around me
She so comfy, she even fart around me
[Chorus]
I think I lost my mind, I can’t find that shit
I’m reckless in this life I live
I don’t think sometimes
I don’t even know why, baby I just live my life
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
Baby gyal I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
[Bridge]
I could pull up in the car if I want to (I just do it, do it)
Car if I want to (I just do it, do it)
Take a girl yard if I want to (I just do it, do it)
Go hard if I want to (I just do it, do it)
I’m a hustler, I thought you knew that
I could sell a Biggie Smalls album to 2Pac
I’m a hustler, I thought you knew that
I could sell a Biggie Smalls album to 2Pac
[Outro]
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
ILLBLU
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna

RiceGum – Bitcoin Lyrics

[Chorus]
Gettin’ texts from my ex, I think she knows I’m up next
Yeah, they hate when I flex, it don’t really makes sense
Yeah, I got a lot of enemies, I don’t want to make amends (nah)
I don’t want to make friends (nah), I just wanna make M’s (yeah)
[Verse]
My house is a big crib, shit, I just threw a party here
Had your girl gettin’ out here, no regrets, no sorrys here
2K on a jacket, and my wrist on Cartier
What I’m saying, they don’t wanna hear
All the haters would got me here
Ayy, yeah, who talking shit? I’ma let ’em know
You had the juice but you let it go
All that hating is gettin’ old
You put that girl on the pedestal, I hit her once and I let her go
Switching my hoes like I’m switching clothes
I’m covered in ice like I’m made of snow
Girl, you know I’m from the trap (trap)
Face look like a rat (damn)
Came straight out of LV, now LV’s on the bag (Louis)
Keep bragging ’bout you getting money
But the label taking half, ayy
Add it up, quick maths, ayy
You just broke and you sad
Little girl, I don’t know what you wanna beef about
You are not what you tweet about
You are just a rat looking girl who Twitter just made a meme about
If you got money bring it out
Ghost writer, just bring him out
What happened with YoungBoy? Phil
Hold up Iggy, yeah I got the kill, she ain’t really want the drama still
I remember I was really down, I was broke, yeah I had to plot for real, now I got a mill’
[Chorus]
Gettin’ texts from my ex, I think she knows I’m up next
Yeah, they hate when I flex, it don’t really makes sense
Yeah, I got a lot of enemies, I don’t want to make amends (nah)
I don’t want to make friends (nah), I just wanna make M’s (yeah) You weren’t a bitch you wanna keep around
Guess you really couldn’t keep him down
How the fuck are you 14 with rumors that you sleep around? Shout out to the Eagles, shout out Philly
Yeah, we need Meek around
But just like your dad, you not a girl I wanna be around
Rollie on me, it’s a big boy
With the gang, smoking big doinks
I just started to invest, now this fit on me cost a Bitcoin
You ain’t getting no checks, record label taken all the big coins
You can’t hit 100 mill’, little bitch, I’m making big noise
Little girl with a attitude, you’re a meme, we just laugh at you
I ain’t even really mad at you, honestly, I feel bad for you
All you ever do is chase the clout
Too bad you had to run your mouth
Coulda been in the fucking gang
Coulda lived in the fucking house
She a troll, she is not for real
Little ratchet ass poppin’ pills
You ain’t make it on your own, you made it ’cause of Dr.

Janet Jackson – Just A Little While (Album Version)

[Verse 1]
Baby, I like it when it feels this good
You always seem to make me smile
And can’t nobody do what you do
When you love me just a little while
I, I know you got somewhere to go
And I got somewhere to be right now
I’ll make them wait all day long
If you wanna get a little wild
[Pre-Chorus]
I don’t want to be a distraction to you, no no no
So maybe I’ll just lay around
Play by myself
While touching on my favorite fruit
[Chorus]
Can’t stop thinking ’bout the things we do
And how it feels makin’ love to you
I’m ready to get it baby if you got it to dish out
Just love me for a little while
I wanna make it like a dream for you
Turn every fantasy into the truth
You know I’ll take it anywhere that you wanna go right now
Just to love you for a little while
[Verse 2]
I, I like sleeping in your clothes
To smell you makes it all come down
When I think about me and you
Sometimes I get a little loud
Baby, I know we did it all night long
And I didn’t want to burn you out
‘Cause you know how much I like to do it
In the morning it’s another round
[Pre-Chorus]
I don’t know if you have other things to do, no no no
So maybe I’ll just lay around
Play by myself
While touching on my favorite fruit
[Chorus]
Can’t stop thinking ’bout the things we do
And how it feels making love to you
I’m ready to get it baby if you got it to dish out
Just love me for a little while
I’m gonna make it like a dream for you
And turn every fantasy into the truth
You know I’ll take it anywhere that you wanna go right now
Just to love you for a little while
[Bridge]
My passion flows like a river that has no end
I wanna know everything you’ll let me do to you
[Spoken Interlude]
Tell me what you like baby
You wanna play with my strawberry
Sometimes when I think about me and you
I can get real loud
[Chorus]
Can’t stop thinking ’bout the things we do
And how it feels making love to you
I’m ready to get it baby if you got it to dish out
Just love me for a little while
I wanna make it like a dream for you
And turn every fantasy into the truth
You know I’ll take it anywhere that you wanna go right now
Just to love you for a little while
[Outro]
Just love me
Just love me for a little while
(I’ll take it anywhere for you)
Just love me for a little while
(You make my juices flow)
Just love me for a little while
(Tell me everything you’ll let me do to you_
Just love me for a little while

Paul Young – I’m Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down (Album Version)

[Chorus:] x2
I’m gonna tear your playhouse down
Pretty soon
I’m gonna tear your playhouse down
(The way you are)
Room by room [Chorus:]
I’m gonna tear your playhouse down
Pretty soon
I’m gonna tear your playhouse down
(The way you are)
Room by room
[Bridge:]
You think you’ve got it all set up
You think you’ve got the perfect plan
To charm everyone you see
And playing any game you can
You’ve been playing madly
With every mind in town
Oh, what you gonna do
When you look up one day
And see your playhouse tumbling down? [Verse 1:]
You think you’ve got it all set up
You think you’ve got the perfect plan
To charm everyone you see
And playing any game you can
But I’ve got news for you
I hope it don’t hit you too hard
One of these days
While you’re at play
I’m gonna catch you off guard
[Chorus:]
I’m gonna tear your playhouse down
Pretty soon
I’m gonna tear your playhouse down
(The way you are)
Room by room
[Verse 2:]
You make our lives a stress and strain
Using the power ploy
All you do is pass around
Hearts you use as play toys
You’ve been playing madly
With every mind in town
So what you gonna do
When you look up one day
And see your playhouse tumbling down?

Heart – Alone (Album Version)

How do I get you alone? [Outro]
How do I get you alone? How do I get you alone? [Verse 1]
I hear the ticking of the clock
I’m lying here the room’s pitch dark
I wonder where you are tonight
No answer on the telephone
And the night goes by so very slow
Oh, I hope that it won’t end though
Alone
[Chorus]
Till now I always got by on my own
I never really cared until I met you
And now it chills me to the bone
How do I get you alone? Alone, alone How do I get you alone? [Verse 2]
You don’t know how long I have wanted
To touch your lips and hold you tight, oh
You don’t know how long I have waited
And I was gonna tell you tonight
But the secret is still my own
And my love for you is still unknown
Alone
[Chorus]
Till now I always got by on my own
I never really cared until I met you
And now it chills me to the bone
How do I get you alone?

Winger – You Are The Saint, I Am The Sinner (Tour Version)

You Are The Saint, I Am The Sinner (3: 35) (Winger/Beach)
Do you really believe that I
Can’t see inside your cold heart
I have witnessed you, now let the
Truth be a light in the dark
Yeah I can see so clearly
Right through your crying there’s no denying
You point the finger, cast the first stone
Knowing you’re guilty you’re
Sstill blaming me, sayin’…
You are the saint I am the sinner
You laugh as my heart turns to stone
You are the saint I am the sinner
Prey til my flesh hits the bone
You love watching the blood dripping
Off of your hands
But like the rising sun your reflection will come
Put you up on the stand
Yeah I can see so clearly
Right through your crying there’s no denying
You point the finger from up on your throne
You promise, you wink, you honestly think that…
[Chorus]
Soon to your demon you will be a slave
Watching these words but until that day…
(repeat chorus)

There’s a fire beneath my skin
There’s a fever that makes me ill
Got a love, a love that kills
I’ve got twenty four hours to live
Comeback, I’m begging you please
Comeback, I’m down on my knees
Comeback, I’m begging you please
I don’t know why and I don’t understand
How you sold me down the river
I don’t know why
I don’t understand
How you sold me down the river
SOLD ME DOWN THE RIVER
There’s a rose across my chest
Got your name written on it
Love’s the drug that I live by
Give me a shot before I die
Comeback, I’m begging you please
Comeback, I’m down on my knees
Comeback, I’m begging you please
I don’t know why
I don’t understand
How you sold me down the river
I don’t know why
I don’t understand
How you sold me down the river
SOLD ME DOWN THE RIVER
Sold me down the river tonight
Whoo whoo
I’ve got twenty four hours
I don’t know why
I don’t understand
How you sold me down the river
I don’t know why
I don’t understand
How you sold me down the river
SOLD ME DOWN THE RIVER
All right
Sold me
Sold me
Sold me down the river
Sold me
Sold me
Sold me down the river
I don’t know why
I don’t understand
How you sold me down the river
I don’t know why
I don’t understand
How you sold me down the river
SOLD ME DOWN THE RIVER
SOLD ME DOWN THE RIVER
SOLD ME DOWN THE RIVER
