Crossfire Lyrics

Artist : BRANDON FLOWERS
Album : Flamingo

There's a still in the street outside your window
You're keeping secrets on your pillow
Let me inside, no cause for alarm
I promise tonight not to do no harm
I promise you babe, I will do you no harm

And we're caught up in the crossfire of Heaven and Hell
And we're searchin' for shelter

Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down

Watching your dress as you turn down the lights
I forget all about the storm outside
Dark clouds roll their way over town
Heartache and pain came a-pouring down like hail, sleet and rain, yeah
They're handing it out

And we're caught up in the crossfire of Heaven and Hell
And we're searching for shelter

Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down

Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down

And tell the Devil that he can go back from where he came
His fiery arrows drew their bead in vain
And when when the hardest part is over, we'll be here
And our dreams will break the boundaries of our fear
The boundaries of our fear

Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down

Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down... next to mine

On The Floor Lyrics

Artist : BRANDON FLOWERS
Album : Flamingo

When the lights go down in the city, getting real low
Settling in my room, I'm unnoticed
When the still comes in through my window, letting me go
I feel a calm, come over me, on the floor

On the floor
Where the rats all come away clean
There on the floor
Where the children all stomped and screamed straight out the door
Well I find myself on my knees
Begging please

When the lights go down in the city and everyone goes, to their room
Walking the trail to dreamland
When the lights go down in the city, something is roaring
I find myself waiting to believe

On the floor
Where the mice call shots in the corner that's where I'll be
When the crickets come home and sing their symphony
Well I find myself on my knees
Begging please

On the floor
Facing the things I've done here on the floor
Where the years have gathered and run that's where I'll be
And I find myself on my knees
Begging please

Swallow It Lyrics

Artist : BRANDON FLOWERS
Album : Flamingo

Seek out the light between
Time and confusion glowing up ahead
Instead of slipping through
You bit off more, much more than you could chew

You could not swallow it
No, baby you’re not ready
Slow down and take the time to evolve
You could not swallow it
No, baby you’re not ready
Slow down

We had a lot to learn
Table manners and grace, how to wait your turn
When time came to clear your slate
You had too much, had too much on your plate

You could not swallow it
No, baby you’re not ready
Slow down and take the time to evolve
You could not swallow it
No, baby you’re not ready now
Slow down

Take your medicine and crawl before you walk
Think it through before you open your mouth to talk
Be an advocate of joy
Find your little heart’s desire

And follow it
Whoa, baby you’re not ready
Slow down and take the time to evolve
You could not swallow it
No, baby you’re not ready
Slow down
Baby, you’re not ready

You could not swallow it
No, baby you’re not ready
Slow down and take the time to evolve
You could not swallow it
No, baby you’re not ready now
Slow down

No no, no no
Don't be afraid
This is your year
It's gonna be all right
You’re a performer
Just take your time
But not too much time
No no, no no

The Clock Was Tickin Lyrics

Artist : BRANDON FLOWERS
Album : Flamingo

The teacher had you write a letter, you were eight years old
About the man that you’d become and the positions you’d hold
But this was long before you and Jackie Geronimo met in the Prelude Park at midnight
Now when it came to bells and whistles, Jackie did not lack
And when she kissed you on the kisser, boy, you kissed her back
Now you tell her that you love her and she cuts you slack
When you drink with your buddies on the weekend

And the weeks fly by and the years roll on
You spend your whole life dropping nickels in the bucket, wakin’ up at dawn
And while Jackie bestowed the joys of fingerlickin’
The clock up on the wall was tickin’

You got yourself a job cleaning hospital floors
But Jackie had a baby, then she had five more
They’d pay you just enough to drag your ass to the store
To buy bread, milk and Better Homes & Gardens
Jackie flips the pages and she dreams little dreams
A cottage in the country built with real wood beams
There’s a baby in the bedroom, he’s starting to scream
She holds him though he probably won’t remember it

And the weeks fly by and the years roll on
Sometimes dreams are all you got to keep you going when the day gets long
And you gave up so many just to make a livin’
That clock up on the wall was tickin’

Now the kids are all grateful when they left the nest
And Jackie wasn’t perfect but she did her best
You seize the opportunity to get you some rest
But you can’t sleep on account of screaming grandkids

The golden years are meant to leave a gleam in your eye
You’re starting to discover it’s a great big lie
They'll work you like a dog til you quit or you die
But you can’t quit cause Jackie needs the benefits

And the weeks fly by and the years roll on
They say patience is a virtue but the doctor says she don’t have long
You stood up and tried your damndest not to listen
But that clock up on the wall was tickin’

When they told you to clear the room, that’s when it hit you
You watched as the caravan took your sweetheart away
The arguments and fights and money troubles seem so worthless
As the kids throw yellow roses on her grave

And the weeks fly by and the years roll on
The house is quiet now and everything inside it seems to know she’s gone
There’s a picture of you both sixteen years old just kissing
And that clock up on the wall was tickin’

You always thought she had a chance and it was somewhere hidden
Now you’ve come to the conclusion that she never did
Not a chance, that is

Jacksonville Lyrics

Artist : BRANDON FLOWERS
Album : Flamingo

Slow down your mind
Fill the unknown spaces with truth and light
If you can find the time, time seems so slow
Now we’re stuck here asking, where did it go?
(And where do we come from?)
And what are we here for?

But there we were looking out some country window
And although we had our problems, we were fine
The sky was blue and the night was all I wanted
Let me be your comet, I will fly

Summertime so sweet
Luxuries of childhood were on our feet
In the sun sun sun
Baby run run run
Baby run run run
Baby run run run

Games will be portrayed

But there we were looking out some country window
And although we had our problems, we were fine
The sky was blue and the night was all I wanted
Let me be your comet, I will fly

The sky was blue and the night was all I wanted
Let me be your comet, I will fly

I’ve been to Jacksonville
I’ve been to Monterrey
I’ve felt a mother’s love
I’ve seen the colors change
I’ve cried a million tears
I’ve caused a million more
I’ve been to Jacksonville

There we were looking out some country window
And although we had our problems, we were fine

I Came Here To Get Over You Lyrics

Artist : BRANDON FLOWERS
Album : Flamingo

I came here thinking I could ease the pain
I came in spite of others’ good advice
I came here thinking sweet, sweet revenge
Bring me some sugar, let the games begin

I made a lot of bad decisions but tonight I’m breaking through
I came here to get over you

I had this dream about a wild bird
Black feathered picking at your beating heart
You reach for me and shout, “I need your love!”
Yet soon collapses when I call your bluff

Picking at your heart strings
I need your love

I started shaking when you told me that you found somebody new
I came here to get over you

And the lights are burning like kerosene
I can’t stop thinking about you and me
Did you cross your fingers when you told me you’d be true?

I came here to get
I came here to get
I came here to get over you
I came here to get over you
I came here to get over you
I came here to get over you

I made a lot of bad decisions but tonight I’m breaking through

Right Behind You Lyrics

Artist : BRANDON FLOWERS
Album : Flamingo

As by the door to get to Heaven
Seven trumpets big and bright
You hear it coming in the middle of the night
A caution to the children
Time to turn your crimson white

We’ve all got reservations
Trials will come suddenly
And without explanation
But you were born with goodness
You were born with goodness
Wherever you go now

I’m right behind you
In the light of hope
I’ll be beside you
On that dusty road
And if you get blind, well that’s alright
Wicked winds blow with grace and might
Cling to the ways of my name
When you touch the stone

Break your word over me
Sinking in the quicksand
Break your word
Don’t you see?
You’re breaking me down now

I’m right behind you
In the light of hope
I’ll be beside you on that dusty road
When no one expects you to deny
And no one accepts your reasons why
You cling to the ways of my name
When you touch the stone

No one expects you to deny
And no one accepts your reasons why
You cling to the ways of my name
When you touch the stone

Freshman Year Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Modern Day Prodigal Son

Saturday night my first high school dance
Showin' up late in my sundays best
Seen you before ahh but not in that dress
The dj's last song and I lost the dare
So with my heart and my pride on the line
I asked you to dance for our first time right there

Holding hands in the hall
All night wait for your call it's 2 am and were still on the phone
Hanging out at the mall oh that old picture show
I reach for your lips girl first taste of love
That old ford truck was your daddy's worst fear
Oh I remember the way love felt in freshman year

Graduated in may we went our seperate ways
Til the hole in my heart was too much to take
You made that drive down to my dorm room that night
Every knock at the door you go and hide
And I thought I'd drown in the tears that you cried
Just a holdin on tight
We found a way to relight that old fire that night

We were young and wild hanging out too late at night
At all those college bars, cheap natty light
Just like one of the guys you stuck right by my side
At every football game there with a smile
Two in the crowd screaming "go dawgs. go!"
Oh I remember the way love felt in freshman year

Oh we're still young and wild hanging out to late at night
In all these college bars. cheap natty light
Just like one of the guys you stuck right by my side
At every football game there with a smile
Two in the crowd screaming "go dawgs, go!"
Oh I remember the way love felt in freshman year
Oh that's freshman year

What's Left Of A Small Town Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Modern Day Prodigal Son

Grand daddy used to take me
Down town to the kinneys
That's where all the old men go to reminisce
Ramble on about history dust off some old stories
Look back at the life they've come to miss
I swear sometimes I can almost see
A picture of this small town back in 1943
Everything's black and white
And there's dirt on the street
It don't look at all what I'm seein' today

Riding around
What's left of a small town
Makin' my rounds
Waving "hi" to everyone around
It's in my blood it's where I settle down
Lay me in the ground under what's left of a small town

You can still get a hair cut for less than ten bucks
If you go down to buds right off the square
It's been almost 10 years since they closed down that old mill
That's what this whole town was built around
There's a couple old dirt roads
Left down by old potts' farm
We used to throw down hard out there man we never did no harm
Well the counties offered thousands, man that old Potts won't give in
There development stops right at that barbed wire fence

Riding around
What's left of a small town
Makin' my rounds
Waving "hi" to everyone around
It's in my blood it's where I settle down
Lay me in the ground under what's left of a small town

Riding around
What's left of a small town
Makin' my rounds
Waving "hi" to everyone around
It's in my blood it's where I settle down
Lay me in the ground under what's left of a small town

G.R.I.T.S. Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Modern Day Prodigal Son

I had a buddy come down 'round last July
Called me when he crossed the Mason-Dixon Line
Said he was headed down south and looking for a real good time

I said, "man come on I got a place in mind."
We pulled up at bar right off the Georgia line.
Walked in man his eyes got wide
And when his jaw hit the floor, all I could do was smile.

He said, "man, we got some pretty women up north
But I aint never seen nothing like this."
I said, "man, these here aint ordanary women.
We call these grits."

Shes a product of being raised in the country.
She knows her roots and works hard for her money.
A southern draw with dark tan legs.
Aint nuttin like a woman southern born and bred.
Now she loves her mama, daddy, and the Lord to death.
Acting innocent and playing hard to get
With her girls tonight, man, they're out on the town.
Prettiest thing, a girl raisied in the south.

Sat down at the bar had a couple drinks.
Breakin' his neck just scoping the scene.
Wasn't long before he had my attention pointed towards the door.

He was starin' at long legs that ran into boots.
Her short skirt and her t-shirt didn't have much use.
But she walked right to the jukebox and fired it up.

She had every head turning, boys eyes was burning
As she made her way out to the floor.
Had all the jealous girls lookin all sayin
"She ain't nothin' but a.."
Oh my God, she just broke it down low.

Product of being raised in the country.
She knows her roots and works hard for her money.
A southern draw with dark tan legs.
Aint nuttin like a woman southern born and bred.
Now she loves her mama, daddy, and the Lord to death.
Good at acting innocent and playing hard to get
With her girls tonight, man, they're out on the town.
Prettiest thing, a girl raisied in the south.

Shes a product of being raised in the country.
She knows her roots and works hard for her money.
Southern draw with dark tan legs.
Aint nuttin like a woman southern born and bred.
Now she loves her mama, daddy, and the Lord to death.
She's acting innocent but playing hard to get
With her girls tonight, man, they're out on the town.
Prettiest thing, a girl raisied in the south.

Whenever We're Alone Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Modern Day Prodigal Son

She comes home late at night
Kicks her high-heels off and sighs
Lays down on the bed

She said it's been a long day at work
I couldn't wait til I got home
Just to be with you again

Lord I love just to watch her sleeping
Yeah I just pull the covers up and wonder what she's dreaming

When she's wrapped up with her t-shirt on
Got the lights turned way down low
Radio's got her favorite song on
And man she's singing right along
Let your hair down
Baby let it fall
Rip the phone cord out the wall
Whisper love you while drifting off again
Whenever we're alone yeah

Took her out last Friday night
Let her dance under neon lights
And that girl she's turning heads
Stranger's eyes right on my girl
I can't blame him man she's beautiful
She's coming home with me

Lord her beauty it's hard to hide
Counting my blessings every night mmmm

When she's wrapped up with her t-shirt on
Got the lights turned way down low
Radio's got her favorite song
And man she's singing right along
Let your hair down
Baby let it fall
Rip the phone cord out the wall
Whisper love you while drifting off again
Whenever we're alone
Whenever we're alone

When she's wrapped up with her t-shirt on
Got the lights turned way down low
Radio's got her favorite song
And man she's singing right along
Let your hair down
Baby let it fall
Rip the phone cord out the wall
Whisper love you while you're drifting off
Whenever we're alone

The Best Of Me Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Modern Day Prodigal Son

I found a box of memories,
Read a letter,
Dropped a tear where you signed your name,
And turning the page,
Smearing the ink into "Love Always."

Girl, I always start this way a
Nd then I end up in a bottle screaming out your name,
Punching the walls, carrying on like I've gone insane,

And in the mirror,
I can see the man who just shook his head with no remorse,
Watching an angel cry her tears,
Stepping over my beers as you walked out the door.

And there ain't nothing like a memory,
When it's coming on strong like a hurricane.
How can love like that just up and walk away?
Killing me baby.
It's got me pouring up another drink,
Bourbon's hitting me hard like a freight train,
With my back against the wall or on my knees,
When the worst of your memory gets the best of me.

Well, I remember it all too well, riding 441 down to Milledgeville,
Crossing the bridge as the sun set on Lake Sinclair.

I couldn't wait to see you smile,
But all I saw were tears in your pretty eyes and that said it all,
It was all downhill from there.
And I remember you saying, "Baby, please don't give up on me."
Oh my baby, this stubborn man is gonna lie in the bed he made.

'Cause there ain't nothing like a memory,
When it's coming on strong like a hurricane.
How can love like that just up and walk away?
It's killing me baby.
It's got me pouring up another drink,
Bourbon's hitting me hard like a freight train,
With my back against the wall or on my knees,
When the worst of your memory gets the best, the best of me.

Baby, there ain't nothing like a memory,
When it's coming on strong like a hurricane.
How can love like that just up and walk away?
Your killing me baby.
Got me pouring up another drink,
Bourbon's hitting me hard like a freight train,
With my back against the wall or on my knees,
When the words to your memory gets the best, the best of me.

My Kinda Party Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Modern Day Prodigal Son

[Verse 1]
Yeah, I worked all week.
Cleaned up, clean cut, and clean shaved.
Get the cover off the ’68.
Fire it up, and let them horses sing.
A little pretty thing.
A little tan-legged Georgia dream.
She’s a rockin’ them holey jeans.
Baby, what you got goin’ on Saturday?
You know, words got it, there’s gonna be a party,
Out of town about half a mile.
Four wheel drives and big mud tires.
Muscadine wine

[Chorus]
Oh baby, you can find me.
In the back of a Ford truck tailgate.
Sittin’ ‘round watchin’ all these pretty things.
Gettin’ down in that Georgia clay.
And I’ll find peace.
In the bottom of a real tall cold drink.
*Chillin* to some Skynyrd or some old Hank.
Lets get this thing started.
It’s my kind of party.

[Verse 2]
Girl, well if you’re gonna drink.
Go on baby, just do your thing.
Give up your keys.
Hell why drive when you can stay with me?
And then after while we’ll sneak away from the bonfire.
Walk by the moonlight and down at the riverside.
Gotcha sippin’ on the moonshine.
Baby, if you’re in mood you can settle for a one night rodeo.
If you can be my tan-legged Juliet,
I’ll be your Redneck Romeo.

[Repeat Chorus two times]

Where ya’ll goin’?
We still got a keg breathin’

A Modern Day Prodigal Son Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Modern Day Prodigal Son

I set out one night in the fast lane bound for freedom
In a truck that daddy bought me
And money mom had saved for school

I laid down all my books and picked up the drinking
Hell I let 'em down
When I gave up like a fool

And one reckless night just lookin' for my whiskey
I found a bible mama gave me and read a while
I read a story 'bout a man who lived just like me
Then finally ate his pride and came runnin' home

And lord I'm a renegade, a rambler
I've squandered all I've owned
A bonified runaway, I'm a gambler
Can't count the lies I've told
And I need redemption, how 'bout forgiveness
And I pray for open arms, and be with me lord
'Cause I'm comin' home, like a modern day prodigal son

I had all of my things packed by early mornin'
I left that bottle I'd lost right there on the bathroom floor
I stopped at a payphone and called back home to mama
Yeh she might not even talk after all I've done

The phone rang twice before I got an answer
And mama nearly dropped the phone when she heard me say
I said mama it's your son and will yall have me
She said son you know I've longed for this day

[Chorus 2x]

Live It Up Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Modern Day Prodigal Son

It’s all around town
Here’s ten cents for mistakes he’s made
It’s all word of mouth
Oh but they say that’s the price you pay
When you’re in with the wrong crowd
Oh look at the mess you’ve made
Starring you down, every time you show your face

Ah to hell with all the small town small talk I’ve had enough
It ain’t their place to judge
Man I’m giving up
And I said if you can’t live it down
Might as well live it up
You live and you learn man
The worlds going to turn, ain’t going to stop you
And I said if you can’t live it down
Might as well live it up
Yeah forgiveness is yours in the hands of the Lord
Ain’t nothing they can do
Hell live it up

She’s made up her mind
This mistakes going to have a name
She’s in for the nine
Awe but she just turned 18
It’s a matter of time
Before she hits these streets
You say it ain’t right
Aw but she don’t wear no ring

Ah to hell with all the small town small talk I’ve had enough
It ain’t their place to judge
Man I’m giving up
And I said if you can’t live it down
Might as well live it up
You live and you learn man
The worlds going to turn, ain’t going to stop you
And I said if you can’t live it down
Might as well live it up
Yeah forgiveness is yours in the hands of the Lord
Ain’t nothing they can do
Hell live it up

So let the sinless man, cast the first stone
And may the judgment in my life, belong to God alone

And I said if you can’t live it down
Might as well live it up
You live and you learn man
The worlds going to turn, ain’t going to stop you
And I said if you can’t live it down
Might as well live it up
Yeah forgiveness is yours in the hands of the Lord
Ain’t nothing they can do
Hell live it up

Friday Night Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Modern Day Prodigal Son

This city's looking like a ghost town
All the stores downtown they've been closing down
Yeah, the only lights that shine for miles
Are lighting up the sky above memorial drive

And if you want a seat you better come on down
'Cause when the band fires up that old glory sound
This is the moment we've all been waiting for
Lining them up, and the whistle blows

This ain't no game around here
It's more like religion
We've built this thing right here
A football tradition
So everybody get up
And feast your eyes
On the highlight of small town life
It's Friday night

And winning state would be a miracle
Man, we did it back in '54
And if the baptist church prayed Sunday morning
We might just stand a chance with the help of the Lord

This is ain't no game around here
It's more like religion
We've built this thing right here
A football tradition
So, everybody get up
And feast your eyes
On the highlight of small town life
It's Friday night

And now the stadium's quiet
Standing here alone on this old 50 yard line
If I listen close I can hear battle cries
Of all the heroes come and gone before I was alive
The memories of fourth and three
Now that rival game is coming back to me
It meant more than a big state ring
If we could do it again it'd never be the same
Remember the lights and the butterflies
Giving it all just one last time
Because heroes are remembered but dragons never die

This is ain't no game around here
It's more like religion
We've built this thing right here
A football tradition
So, everybody get up
And feast your eyes
On the highlight of small town life
It's Friday night

Come on

Indiana's Angel Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Modern Day Prodigal Son

Grew up one state North of Kentucky
A Family far from rollin' in the money
7 brothers and sisters to feed and love
Granddaddy said she kept her eyes on the sky,
Watching all the little birds fly
Staring at heaven like her lost home
None of her dreams held fame and fortune
She wanted a husband and children that loved her

Spreading' her wings her feet left ground In Indian
Driving down south just to marry my daddy
Leaving the life she'd known and loved behind
She never cussed or drank, kept on the table
Hell, I kept her on her knees in prayer
She's a God sent blessing wiling and able
As Indiana's angel

Baby back home your daddy's dying
'Bout then the kind of perfect timing,
Walked in with liquor on my breath
I sit and watch all of her tears glisten
She said, "Son you'll learn to listen,
A man stands taller from his knees"
Now I'll never forget how much that hurt
She said, "Son one day I'll be gone you wont have to hear these words"

Spreading' her wings her feet left ground In Indian
Driving down south just to marry my daddy
Leaving the life she'd known and loved behind
She never cussed or drank, kept on the table
Hell, I kept her on her knees in prayer
She's a God sent blessing wiling and able
As Indiana's angel
Indian's Angel

Spreading' her wings her feet left ground In Indian
Driving down south just to marry my daddy
Leaving the life she'd known and loved behind
She never cussed or drank, kept on the table
Hell, I kept her on her knees in prayer
She's a God sent blessing wiling and able
As Indiana's angel

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Modern Day Prodigal Son

I'm tired of this 9 to 5
8 hours feeling like over time
And my mind's reminding me,
I got a show tonight

Getting home, it's already 8:30
My strings are old and man, my clothes are dity
But jimmy's always late, so man I'm right on time
There's a little old college bar right off of old 129
Said they'd pay me just a little bit of money
To sing my songs tonight

It's 10:00, get ready to rock, let's roll
Give me the beat boys, and free my soul
Play it all from skynyrd to Jones
And some of my own
5'10 with a suntan and southern drawl
In the front row singing along
Yea it's all about the country sound
Yeah, we're gonna rock this town

Sweet home to brown eyed girl
Trying my best to remember the words
And there's always some drunk in the back
Screaming out Free Bird
Take a break, and head to the bar
Shake a couple hands, got me feeling like a star
And I know it's the bottle talking, hell I don't mind

Ya'll I aint cose to famous
But I love to play and sing
And this may be a honkey tonk bar
But I'm still living a dream

It's 10:00, get ready to rock, let's roll
Give me the beat boys, and free my soul
Play it all from skynyrd to Jones
And some of my own
5'10 with a suntan and southern drawl
In the front row singing along
Yea it's all about the country sound
Yeah, we're gonna rock this town

It's 10:00, get ready to rock, let's roll
Give me the beat boys, and free my soul
Play it all from skynyrd to Jones
And some of my own
5'10 with a suntan and southern drawl
In the front row singing along
Yea it's all about the country sound
Yeah, we're gonna rock this town

FREE BIRD!

Picture On The Dashboard Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Modern Day Prodigal Son

You aint nothin like your memory
At least it hangs around
And that old photograph you gave me
Girl I can't bare to lay it down
And when this bottles empty
Girl I'm gonna paint this town

Yeah after all, we're said and done
I don't have one good reason you should turn and come back home
Or the right to blame you girl I don't have much at all

I still got you picture taped to the dashboard
On the mantle right by the front door you
Said if you leave you'd never come back
Well baby I don't believe that's were it's at
It's all of wrong times, all of the right things
In my right mind to say things I don't mean
But baby that's me and it's way to late
But I still got your picture on the dashboard

And I aint like I use to be tough as hell and hard to please
But you came along and this old boy hit his knees
And the day was to much without you yeah my life revolved
Around you and you dropped a stone down on my heart
And now I can't move on
Cause we danced to all our songs
Up to midnight all alone

I still got you picture taped to the dashboard
On the mantle right by the front door you
Said if you leave you'd never come back
Well baby I don't believe that's were it's at
It's all of wrong times, all of the right things
In my right mind to say things I don't mean
But baby that's me and it's way to late
But I still got your picture on the dashboard

Oh when I'm driving down this old backroad,
Way to fast, I'll never kno
Girl I can't look down, cause I'll see your eyes
Right next to 65

I still got you picture taped to the dashboard
On the mantle right by the front door you
Said if you leave you'd never come back
Well baby I don't believe that's were it's at
It's all of wrong times, all of the right things
In my right mind to say things I don't mean
But baby that's me and it's way to late
But I still got your picture on the dashboard

Play Me That Song Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Modern Day Prodigal Son

She's stopping by real late tonight, just to talk.
She said I got some things that been weighing on my mind,
And I know I can come.
And we just sit and we talk a while
While she spills her heart on that couch of mine.
And it wont be long til the guitar starts to play.
I already know what she's gonna say,
Oh she says...

Play me that song, play me that song you wrote
About the girl who might not ever know,
How much you care, or how much you love her.
Play me that song, play me that song again
Cause I like to think there's someone there
Who might love me just like that,
So play me that song again.

Wasted time on a small town guy, nothing but drama.
And she wonders why it's almost everytime she cries,
She ends up at my house.
She knows I don't give a damn about the who and where, or what they said.
I just take my pride and walk away.

Play me that song, play me that song you wrote
About the girl who might not ever know,
How much you care, or how much you love her.
Play me that song, play me that song again
Cause I like to think there's someone there
Who might love me just like that,
So play me that song again.

Girl you know I gotta tell you the truth,
I can't hide it no more.
I can't believe you didn't see through
The hiding, disguises, everytime I'm singing,
Well there it is.

Baby that song, baby that song I wrote
About the girl who might not ever know,
How much I care, or how much I love her.
Baby that song, I gotta tell you the truth
I've been hiding this so long from you.
Baby that song you love so much,
Is all about you.

Hell On Wheels Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Halfway To Heaven

So man you think you wanna run whiskey
Well roll with me but you better listen good and clear
If you got a badge or a big mouth brother you ain’t got no business here
Fool, this here is moonshine still you can smell that whiskey burn
This is how the big dogs run, boy you’re ridin shotgun
Buckle up and lets have some fun

Ridin 95 down the highway, sideways, runnin from ol' John Law
Booze in the boot, move it over Bo Duke make room for a real outlaw
Duct tape on that license plate, a 6 gun in the dash
Thunder in the hood, heaven from a still, lightning in a jar
Brother I’m hell on wheels

Just nine more miles until state line, we’re on time, we lost Barney’s blues
So you can open your eyes, You’re do’in fine in this dangerous part of what we do

When we make that drop we’re gonna pop a top, you got a lesson left to learn
It ain’t wine, don’t sip it, make it bubble when you hit it… let it burn baby burn

Ridin 95 down the highway, sideways, runnin from ol' John Law
Got the Booze in the boot, move it over Bo Duke make room for a real outlaw
Duct tape on that license plate, a 6 gun in the dash
Thunder in the hood, heaven from a still, lightning in a jar

Ridin 95 down the highway, sideways, runnin from ol' John Law
Got the Booze in the boot, move it over Bo Duke make room for a real outlaw
Duct tape on that license plate, a 6 gun in the dash
Thunder in the hood, heaven from a still, lightning in a jar
Brother I’m hell on wheels

I said I’m hell on wheels…

Growing up I was always mama's angel,
Never thought I'd ever fall from grace.
I was taught to walk with God and run from trouble,
But I ran with a crowd that was bound to change my ways.

Yeah I was proud to be in the bad news crowd,
The one my mama warned me about,
The closest thing to hell she's ever raised.
But when I look back on those days,
I know I'd never change a thing.
I made mistakes that paved the way for the man I am today,
I'm proud of 'em all,
And I had a ball,
Bending the rules and breaking the law.

We were bad about sneaking out and shooting road signs.
Throwing eggs and rolling every yard in town.
Yeah, my claim to fame was a Babe Ruth swing on a mailbox.
Yeah,the police just loved driving me around.

'Cause I was proud to be in the bad news crowd,
The one my mama warned me about,
The closest thing to hell she's ever raised.
But when I look back on those days,
I know I'd never change a thing.
I made mistakes that paved the way for the man I am today,
I'm proud of 'em all,
And I had a ball,
Bending the rules and breaking the law.

You learn to walk the way you talk,
And DUI means SOL,
Respect is earned,
You live and learn to pray.
You learn to pray.

Yeah, we were proud to be in the bad news crowd,
One our mamas warned us about,
The closest thing to hell they ever raised.
But when we look back on those days,
I know we'd never change a thing,
We made mistakes that paved the way for the men we are today.
We're proud of 'em y'all,
And we had a ball,
Bending the rules and breaking the law.

Back In The Day Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Halfway To Heaven

Mamma, she's still got that picture
Of me and Katie on homecomin' night
She looked pretty in that fancy dress
But that girl was a barefoot blue jean princess

A hand full of rocks and daddy's pine ladder
Sure did come in handy
For a teenage boy thinkin' all that mattered
Was a kiss that taste like candy

Back in the day we were wild and free
She was my dashboard drummer
Butterflies in the backseat
Little footprints on my window
Parkin' my Chevy by the riverside
And four letters in a heart carved in a pine
A little sun dress layin up there on the bank
While the water washed our innocence away
Back in the day

Friday nights I'd look up there in the bleachers
And I can see her,
with my letter man's jacket on
And I still got this scar here on my right hand
From when Bobby told her she deserved a better man

Aw.. She hung right with me down in panama city
Raisin' hell on our senior trip
and man ain't it funny
it gets the best of me
And I just can't forget
I just can't forget

Back in the day we were wild and free
She was my dashboard drummer
Butterflies in the backseat
Little footprints on my window
Parkin' my Chevy by the riverside
And four letters in a heart carved in a pine
A little sun dress layin up there on the bank
While the water washed our innocence away
Back in the day

Summer was over
College was callin' man I had to watch her leave
But I still wonder if she ever thinks of me

'Cause back in the day we were wild and free
She was my dashboard drummer
Butterflies in the backseat
Little footprints on my window
Parkin' my Chevy by the riverside
And four letters in a heart carved in a pine
A little sun dress layin up there on the bank
While the water washed our innocence away
Feels like yesterday
Back in the day
Back in the day

My Kind Of Crazy Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Halfway To Heaven

She says
"Look baby I'm a rock star"
Grabs my old guitar
Playin' it upside down
Dancin' around
In front of our tv

I can't see the ballgame
So I just wave my lighter and say
Yeah, rock on baby
I'd rather watch you anyway

But when you're done
Can I come backstage
And get you to sign your name
On that zeppelin shirt of mine you're wearin'
I'll never wash that thing again

Yeah and she's my kinda crazy
The little games she plays
Lord they'll never get old
She's too cute to get on my last nerve
The way she throws her little fits

Pokin' out her lip and bitin' mine when we kiss
There ain't a fight that she can't win
That's my baby
And she's my kinda crazy

You ought to see her in my pickup
She's gotta have that radio up
Bless her heart, she can't sit still
Head in my lap, bare feet on the windshield
Says, C'mon baby let me drive

Now honey it's a stick shift
Remember what you did last time
Oh...

She never let's me rest
She keeps me up all night
Known to roll me off the bed
And steal the covers off my side

But I hear, "Wake up sleepy head"
And I open up my eyes
And it's all worth the while

That's my baby
And she's my kinda crazy

Kick It In The Sticks Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Halfway To Heaven

Welcome to the home of a hillbilly
Yeah baby
It’s a land of barbed wire, moonshine, whiskey
Park your car before you get it stuck
Go on grab you a beer
And get on up in the truck
It’s going down tonight
It’s all on me
It’s BYOB, and I got all we need
Yeah boy I’m bout to show me a city slicker
How to kick it in the sticks with the critters down on

Our side of a barbed wire
Money grows in rows
And if it don’t you’ve gone broke
So we
We hang out by the bon fire
Just some good ole boys having a dang good time
We crank it up down here
We get loud down here
Throwin down in the dirty dirty south down here
Be an all nighter with the hippies and the hicks
Jocks and bikers they all came to kick it in the sticks

So pop a top and drop a tailgate
Yeah we crankin up AC DC, hank, skynrd, and George strait
Wheres the girls?
Bout to call em up
A little southern draw said "hey trouble whats up?"
It’s goin down tonight
Now there pullin up
We got the jacked up trucks slap covered in mud
Bikini tops and daisy duke denim
Hoppin out singin outlaw women down on

Our side of a barbed wire
Money grows in rows
And if it don’t you’ve gone broke
So We hang out by the bonfire
Just the good ole boys having a dang good time
We crank it up down here
We get loud down here
We throwin down in the dirty dirty south down here
Be an all nighter with the hippies and the hicks
Jocks and bikers they all came to kick it in the sticks

Hey boy hit this mason jar one time
burned you a little bit didn't it?
Ever been snipe huntin'
Come on

We’ll do a little frog giggin, cow tippin
How bout a little skinny dippin, bass fishin
Take it easy on the shine
Stay away from other boys women
That’s one damn good way for a man to get it wooped down
These boys tough down here
Get your ass tore up down here
And be an all nighter with the hippies and the hicks
The jocks and bikers they all came

On our side of a barbed wire
Money grows in rows
And if it don’t you’ve gone broke
So we
We hang out by the bon fire
Just the good ole boys having a dang good time
We crank it up down here
We get loud down here
We throwin down in the dirty dirty south down here
Be an all nighter with the hippies and the hicks
The jocks and bikers they all came to kick it in the sticks

Halfway To Heaven Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Halfway To Heaven

There's a live oak tree you can still see off ol 129
you can see the scars its missin bark
where it stopped my truck that night
they say I took a swing at my best friend
for tryin to take my keys
next thing I knew I was upside down
thinkin this is it for me

when you see life flash before your eyes
the good the bad the wrong the right
fade into a bright white line
shinin down on you
your hangin on by a thread
wondering which ones your last breath
knowing theres so much you have left to do
live your life a better man
when youve been, halfway to heaven

first thing I did was hug my momma
I even hugged my dad
told them both how much I love them
never saw daddy cry like that
started hangin out with my little brother
man I never missed a game
I'm in church every sunday mornin
I pray everyday

when you see life flash before your eyes
the good the bad the wrong the right
fade into a bright white line
shinin down on you
your hangin on by a thread
wonderin which ones your last breath
knowin theres so much you have left to do
live your life a better man
when you've been, halfway to heaven

I wont waste, one minute
yeah my life's changed
and I'm gonna live it

like I'm hangin on by a thread
wondering which ones my last breath
knowin theres so much I have left to do
I live my life a better man
I live my life a better man
cuz I've been, halfway to heaven

Saving Amy Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Halfway To Heaven

Amy’s got the letters I wrote
My picture in a frame
She’s had a year to let go
She still wears my ring
It hasn’t left her finger since the night that I proposed
When I promised her forever before i took her home
But I never made it home that night
A part of her died too
I watched her losing her mind
And there’s nothing I can do
Yea sometimes she goes crazy screaming out my name
Saying baby please come and save me
I wish she knew I’d do anything

To kiss the tears right off her face
Tell her everything’s okay
Feel her heart beat next to mine
And make up for lost time
Oh but God I know I can’t
You can’t let her live this way
It’s too late for saving me
But there’s still hope for saving Amy

Now 3 years have gone by
She’s trying to live her life
And I still watch sometimes
Just to make sure she’s alright
She knows I’ll always be there
In her heart and in her dreams
God, I promised her forever and that’s one promise I intend to keep

To kiss the tears right off her face
Tell her everything’s’ okay
Feel her heartbeat next to mine
Make up for lost time
Oh but god I know I can’t
But you can’t let her live this way
It’s too late for saving me
But there’s still hope for saving Amy
Saving Amy

I’ll kiss the tears right off her face
When I walk her through these gates
Feel her heartbeat next to mine
Make up for lost time
God I thank you everyday
For giving a her that *ounce* of faith
That led her right back here to me
And most of all for saving Amy
Saving Amy
Thank you god for saving Amy

Country Must Be Country Wide Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Halfway To Heaven

I grew up south of the Mason Dixon
Workin' spittin' huntin' and fishin'
Stone cold country by the grace of God

I was gasin' up the other day
And an ol' boy pulled up with a license plate
From Ohio I thought of good lord he's lost
From his wranglers to his boots
He reminded me of Chris LeDoux
And that Copenhagen smile

Country must be country wide
In every state
There's a station
Playin' Cash, Hank, Willie, and Waylon
In foreign cars and four wheel drives

There's cowboys and hillbillies
From farm towns to big cities
There ain't no doubt in my mind
Country must be country wide

It ain't where
It's how you live
We weren't raised to take
We were raised to give
The shirt off our back
To anyone in need

We bow our heads before we eat
Before we start our day
Before we fall asleep
'Cause in god we trust and we believe
And we see what's wrong
And we know what's right

And ol' Hank he said it all
When he said country folks can survive
There ain't no doubt in my mind
Country must be country wide

Take It Outside Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Halfway To Heaven

Back in the good old days
They knew how to brawl

I'm talkin' real gunslingers
I'm talkin' real outlaws
They'd saddle up and ride on into town
When it was high noon in them old saloons
You knew what was goin' down
When they took it outside

Took it outside
When it was man to man
Toe to toe
You know they had to go
Where nobody's gonna break it up
Not until you've had enough

And if you think you've got the guts
Then lets take it outside
If you think your man enough
You really wanna knuckle up
If you wanna shed a little blood then lets
Take it outside
Let's take it outside

These days things have changed
A lot of talk
Lot of pushin' and shovin'
Well if you wanna walk the walk

Let's have some respect
Got girls in here
Just pay your tab
And lay down your beer and let's take it outside
Take it outside

It's man to man
Toe to toe
You know we need to go
We're all here for a good time
But don't start no trouble
'Cause it won't be the first time
I put a scar on my knuckles

Now brother I don't mind
I'll be glad to stomp your ass
But if both of us walk out that door
One of us ain't comin' back
Let's take it outside

Them Boys Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Halfway To Heaven

Look at them boys in the back of that truck
Somebody ought to jerk a knot in their butts
Out ridin' around like they own this town
That racket turned all the way up

It's too early for school to let out
and the Pastor's boy just threw a cigarette out
I sure hope there ain't beer in them cups
'Cause our star quarterback's turnin' them up

Them boys don't know one thing about life
True love or trouble, struggle or strife
They think it's all just fun and games
Like laws and rules or balls and chains

Treatin' little girls like hearts don't break
Treatin' old men like hands don't shake
I pray it's just a phase they're goin' through
Yeah but what are we gonna do with them boys

I heard ol' Franks grandson got caught
With a case full of beer that Smith boy bought
Y'all didn't hear all of this from me
But I heard they got it with a fake i.d.

Them boys
Lookin' back on the times we shared
From rock 'n roll to these rockin' chairs
The same ones our granddads sat in
By this old woodstove in this hardware store
Talkin' the gossip the weather and war
And how much trouble we were in

Oh, you can bet they said back then
They don't know a thing
About love
About life
Them boys

Fall Into Me Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Halfway To Heaven

A whisper away from changin' everything
But is it safe to say
Such dangerous things
When your hands are tremblin'

Girl I'm weak in the knees
It's times like these when silence means everything
More than anything
So fall when you're ready baby

Let our kiss count the moments and hearts set the pace
I'll be your love song and I'll love you right off your feet
Until you fall into me
Love ain't a race
There's no finish line
And I love a chase

But don't leave me behind
'Cause girl we're both gamblin'
But I'm playin' for keeps
It's time like these
When patience means everything
More than anything

And I'll fall for you every day
I'll cherish the moments that time can't erase
We'll be the love song
I promise you we're gonna sing

Girl when you fall into me
Girl when you fall into me

C'mon baby fall into me
I'm waiting
Fall into me
Fall into me
Fall into me
A whisper away from changing everything

Dirt Road Anthem (Revisited) Lyrics

Artist : BRANTLEY GILBERT
Album : Halfway To Heaven
(feat. Colt Ford)

[Brantley Gilbert:]
yeah I'm chillin on a dirt road.
Laid back swervin' like I'm George Jones
Smoke rollin' out the window
An ice cold beer sittin in the console.
Memory Lane up in the headlights.
got me reminiscing on the good times
said I'm turnin' off the real life drive and that's right
hittin easy street on mud tires

[Colt Ford:]
back in the day Potts' farm was the place to go
load the truck up hit the dirt road
Jump the barbwire, spread the word
light the bon fire , then call the girls
king in the can, and the Marlboro man
jack and gin were a few good men
we learned how to kiss and cuss and fight too
better watch out for the boys in blue
and all this small town he said she said
it aint as funny how rumors spread
like i know somethin ya'll dont know
man this shit is gettin old
man mind your business watch your mouth
before i have to knock your loud ass out
no time for talkin ya'll aint listenin
them old dirt road is what ya'll missing

[Brantley Gilbert:]
yeah I'm chillin on a dirt road.
Laid back swervin' like I'm George Jones
Smoke rollin' out the window
An ice cold beer sittin in the console.
Memory Lane up in the headlights.
got me reminiscing on the good times
said I'm turnin' off the real life drive and that's right
hittin easy street on mud tires

[Colt Ford:]
I sit back and think about them good ole days
the way we were raised and our southern ways
we like corn bread and biscuits
and if its broke round here we fix it
see i can take ya'll where you need to go
down to my hood or back in them woods
we do it different round here thats right
but we sho do it good and we do it all night
so if you really wanna know how it feels
to get off the road and truck with four wheels
jump on in tell ya friends
that well be raisin hell where the black top ends

[Brantley Gilbert:]
yeah I'm chillin on a dirt road.
Laid back swervin' like I'm George Jones
Smoke rollin' out the window
An ice cold beer sittin in the console.
Memory Lane up in the headlights.
got me reminiscing on the good times
said I'm turnin' off the real life drive and that's right
hittin easy street on mud tires

[Brantley Gilbert:]
I was brought up in a small town in North Georgia
raised on southern baptist morals
in a front row pew for the Sunday roll call
now everybody praise the lord
i grew up learned how to hunt and fish
bust a 12 gauge pump and not miss
a life without work that's just a myth
never listen when they talkin shit
my dad taught me how to stand my ground
be a man boy and never back down
don't start up something but if he's talking trash
you better throw the first punch and whip his ass
now be somebody, make a name for yourself
life is hard, you go through hell
there comes a time when you've got to slow down
that's what we doing lets go

[Brantley Gilbert:]
yeah I'm chillin on a dirt road.
Laid back swervin' like I'm George Jones
Smoke rollin' out the window
An ice cold beer sittin in the console.
Memory Lane up in the headlights.
got me reminiscing on the good times
said I'm turnin' off the real life drive and that's right
hittin easy street on mud tires

All I Can See Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : The Day Is Brave

I want to walk through this doorway
I want to open my mind
I want to pledge my allegiance to all I can find
I want a car that will crash trough the barrier
To a road no one knows
I want to feel less control on the bend and I
Want to land far from home

The revolution of the earth around the sun
Is the perfect lesson of how it should be
So if I cannot learn to journey and return
To never rest till I've seen all I can see

I want to learn a completely new language,
One I don't understand
I want to help someone lost, someone helpless
With the strength of my hand
I want to come to the base of a statue built
Before they counted the years
And there I'll fall with my face in my hands
And cry and feel their hope in my tears

The revolution of the earth around the sun
Is the perfect lesson of how it should be
So if I cannot learn, to journey and return
To never rest till I've seen all I can see

Train rides and pastures colliding
Colors and customs I've never seen
I know I, yes I know I,
I know I will stumble, but,
Time is precious my friend

Those who journey can easily understand
The more they see, the more they'll learn,
The more that they will be
So this I swear to you, and this I swear to me
I'll never rest till I've seen all I can see
No, I'll never rest till I've seen all I can see

I want to know where the stength of a person lies,
In their past or their future
Is it in the way that they hurt
Or they love themselves, or is it all an illusion?
I want to crawl from this skin that I'm painted in
Body, please let it give
I want to find the creator of all good things,
Ask what it means to live

Hero's Song Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : The Day Is Brave

Here I am
In the desert again
A compass and a weapon
A lost American
I started out with a simple plan
And a locket in my hand
But the sun so unforgiving
And the wind so hard to stand

Fall out, fall out
With the rest of your brothers
With the rest of your sisters
Heroes on the line
Carry out what your leader says
For what his leader says
Is that his leader says
This is right for the people

No one will ever understand why
Thousands of beautiful, healthy,
Young statues must fall
Smoke and explosions surround me
A flood of hate, it drowns me
I cannot live this way
No I cannot live

Doubt and confusion
They find me
They run up right behind me
I cannot die this way
No, I cannot die this way

In the water, in the sand
Is the blood of a culture
Is the blood of an ancient people
In whose holy war I stand
I hear the world like a cannon roar
Say I can't win this war
I promise them this is
Not what I signed up for

No one will ever understand why
Thousands of beautiful, healthy,
Young statues must fall
Smoke and explosions surround me
A flood of hate, it drowns me
I cannot live this way
No, I cannot live

Doubt and confusion
They find me
They run up right behind me
I cannot die this way
No, I cannot die this way

No one will ever understand why
Thousands of beautiful, healthy,
Young soldiers must fall

Smoke and explosions surround me
A flood of hate, it drowns me
I cannot live this way
I cannot live
With your doubt and confusion
They find me
They run up right behind me
I cannot die this way
No, I will not die this way

Early April Morning Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : The Day Is Brave

There used to be nothing in common
There used to be nothing to share
It used to be sit by the window
And stare at what used to be there

It used to be lonely in numbers
Impossibly weak on my feet
When the game starts and one person's left out
It used to be me

But that was then and she is now
I once was lost, with her I'm found
On this early April morning
Water falling from the sky
The sun that's breaking fills my eye
Life has changed without a warning

Said there used to be nothing in common
There used to be nothing to share
It used to be sit by the window
And stare at what used to be there
Like a king in his court at his table
Who is blind to the power he holds
I could never come to understand
All the powers I had of my own

But that was then and she is now
I once was lost, with her I'm found
On this early April morning
Water falling from the sky
The sun that's breaking fills my eye
Life has changed without a warning

I trust my love, I trust myself,
I trust the love of someone else
I trust that I will get
I've been hoping, waiting for
The prison walls are crashing down
As winter dies without a sound
On this early April Morning, now

Let the struggle end, the joy begin
It's true, it's love I'm falling in
And it came without a warning, now

And that was then and she is now
I once was lost, with her I'm found
On this early April morning
The water falling from the sky
The sun that's breaking fills my eye
And it came without a warning, now
Without a warning, now
Without a warning, now

The Other Side Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : The Day Is Brave

I was a child once
The fear of the world in my eyes
Far from the safety of the other side
I colored by numbers
Learned how to tie my own shoes
Like all the others I was just
Prayed I'd make it through
Prayed I would make it through

Oh mother look how your boy turned out
Three hundred miles from that small town
You never stopped believing
Oh daddy, it hurt to watch you walking out
But understand it made me stronger now
And so satisfied, so full of pride
Thank you here from, from the other side

I'll always remember
The kids and how'd mean they'd been
Eleven years old and I could, could not fit in
But I made it through high school
And college according to plan
The pressure was never greater to become a man
Would I become a man?

Oh mother look how your boy turned out
Three hundred miles from that small town
You never stopped believing
Oh daddy, it hurt to watch you walking out
But understand it made me stronger now
And so satisfied, so full of pride
Thank you here from, from the other side
Thank you here from, from the other side

Mother look how your boy turned out
Three hundred miles from that small town
Dad it hurt to watch you walking out
Hear the piano do the crying no

For all the preachers and the teachers, now
For all the ones who never let me down
I'm so satisfied, so full of pride
Standing here on, on the other side
Thank you here from, from the other side
Thank you here from, from the other side

Here on, on the other side I'm taking my time
There's nothing to fear
There's nothing to worry about
On the other side
I remember when I thought I'd never find
The other side

Run Away Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : The Day Is Brave

Can you feel the room spinning
Can you feel what's happening
Walls are caving, colors change
The red you're wearing turns to gray

Oceans rise and oceans subside
Seasons give up and so have I
Holding you is holding you back
From what you could be
What you could have

Run away, run away before it's too late
Run away, before it's too late
Run away, run away before it's too late
Run away, before it's too late
You never know what you're gonna find out there
No, you never know till you look

Memories as sweet as these
You cannot take them, they belong to me
Don't you worry, worry about me
Don't make this harder than it has to be

Run away, run away before it's too late to
Run away, run away before it's too late
Run away, run away before it's too late
Run away, before it's too late
You never know what you're gonna find out there
No, you never know till you look

Run away, before it's too late, run away
Run away, before it's too late
To run away before it's too late

Run away, run away before it's too late to
Run away, I want you to stay
You never know what you're gonna find out there
No, you never know till you look

Begin Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : The Day Is Brave

Become the champion of the known and the trust
Embrace the strength of one
Decide what can be done

Corrupt the worst of us
Capsize the sinking love
Forgive them from the start
Commend with a melting heart

Begin, be not afraid
Fall in, the day is brave
Remember what has happened in our past
So much is happening right now
So much can come
So much will come
So much can come

The Sun Will Rise Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : The Day Is Brave

The sun will rise, the sun will save me
The sun will change me, change the way I feel
The day will make this heart a fortune
From the fruit of a hundred orchards
From the water river's break

The sun will rise, the sun will save me
From the night, the sun will change me,
Change the way I feel
I've had enough of the hard and harder,
Times are tough
I've drifted farther, farther from myself

I won't dwell, baby, on my failures
It won't help, baby, it won't bring changes
I won't run, baby, when all I want is to run
I won't forget the morning sure to come

The sun will rise, the sun will save me
From the night, the sun will change me,
Change the way I feel
The love I want, the love I need is sure to come,
Is sure to lead me, lead me home again

The light is low, the night is burning
My head is still, but my mind is turning,
Turning round again
If only I could make it through this lonely night,
If I can do this, if I can drift away
Then the sun will rise, the sun will save me
From the night, the sun will change me,
Change the way I feel

Manchester Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : The Day Is Brave

Plains and painted trees
The long south willow street
A raging river turning
Feelings never change
And the names remain the same
As children go on learning

Like all the town she fights
She prays she'll do it right
With nature's sounds to guide
Her safely through the night

All of Manchester together
To carry on the weight that is life
That has changed over night
Let the good lend their hands
As the old teach the young
This is all of Manchester
Together, to carry us on

Shades of red and white
In the blinking of an eye
The blues not far behind
Free to live for the price
Of the cold November night
A chill that never dies

Like all the town she fights
She prays she'll do it right
With nature's sounds to guide
Her safely through the night

All of Manchester together
To carry on the weight that is life
That has changed over night
Let the good lend their hands
As the old teach the young
This is all of Manchester
Together, to carry us on

Father Roger speaks,
he brings us to our knees
It's beautiful

All of Manchester together
To carry on the weight that is life
That has changed over night
Let the good lend their hands
As the old teach the young
This is all of Manchester
Together, to carry us on
To carry us on

So let the good lend their hands
As the old teach the young
This is all of Manchester
Together, to carry us on

Let Your Beat Go On Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : The Day Is Brave

If he came down from heaven
And cleared the lines from your face
Said so long to your mistakes
And questions and start over again
Look in his eyes,
You'll find your own reflection,
A face of hardship and pain
Your money saved and spent,
Your loves and losses,
They're not worth it again

Let your beat go on forever,
They say we're made to live as one
Let this need to fear each other
Not be passed on to my son
Let your beat go on forever,
Let your fears down rivers run
Let the silence be the music,
When their words are said and done

Now fate lands you out in the open,
A slave to the man inside your head
Your second chances,
They're buried deep in rock canyons
As you lie here in bed

Let your beat go on forever,
They say we're made to live as one
Let this need to fear each other
Not be passed on to my son
Let your beat go on forever,
Let your fears down rivers run
Let the silence be the music,
When their words are said and done

I feel like as people,
We're afraid to question,
Afraid of our heavens and our hells
My mother raised me with strength and measure
My father raised me too late

Let your beat go on forever,
They say we're made to live as one
Let this need to fear each other
Not be passed on to my son
Let your beat go on forever,
Let your fears down rivers run
Let the silence be the music,
When their words are said and done

Take The Fall Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : The Day Is Brave

Forget about Norman 'small town' Rockwell
Scenes of simple life
Forget about savings and poignant phrasings,
Cigarettes and schoolyard fights
Let us out now Lord of our speed and fancy
Of our 'can you hear me now''s
And our techno loves
Drop us off on 55th and keep us reading Vonnegut
Point out now what we're careless of

My chance in life is worth letting go
Of all the trends they're setting so forgive me
If I'm so ordinary with
Extraordinary reasons to live
It's just like a boy to save his
Honor and his money
It's just like a girl to feel
It's just like a child to stand
And interrupt us all
And say I'll gladly take the fall for you

Now love, love, love, yes
It's all you need
John and Paul, Ringo, George profess
If I've got love
I can feel I can remember every meal
But like a gift it can be taken all away

My chance in life is worth letting go
Of all the trends they're setting so forgive me
If I'm so ordinary with
Extraordinary reasons to live
It's just like a boy to save his
Honor and his money
It's just like a girl to feel
It's just like a child to stand
And interrupt us all
And say I'll gladly take the fall for you
I'll gladly take the fall for you

Dirty Living Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : The Day Is Brave

I said to my brother
Life is not free
He said call me weak,
But for once I'm proud of me
What you proud of, who you stand for
Not the Lord above
Dirty living got you giving never enough

My sister named Maria
She caught a bright, early sun
With sin, and with love
Like a tattoo on her arm
She couldn't find no separation
Between loving life and love
Dirty living got her giving never enough

Blame it on the doctor,
He never healed your pleas
Blame it on your mother,
She never saw your needs
Looking up to heaven, I tell you
Sinner, you've got to believe
Live like a fool,
You'll get what's coming to you

Like an angel, came his mother
She said one more second chance
She pleaded with Jesus said,
Make my boy a man
Though he loved her, he abused her
Stole her wallet, jewels and used her
Dirty living got him digging for a resolution

She walked with less pride
Than one tiger, no stripes
She cried like a baby
On the first of newborn nights
She never let nobody tell a girl
More loving brings more pain
Dirty living got her breaking
Hearts and souls the same

Blame it on the doctor,
He never healed your pleas, yeah
Blame it on your mother,
She never saw your needs
Looking up to heaven, I tell you
Sinner, you've got to believe
Ya live like a fool,
You'll get what's coming to you

In in the back streets of their broken town
On a corner with no name
These two, unworthy, two unfaithful wanderers
Meet face to face
They fall in love, they run away
They find they're both one in the same
But it backfires, with their lying and
Unwillingness to change

Blame it on the doctor,
He never healed your pleas, yeah
Blame it on your mother,
She never saw your needs
You looking up to heaven, I tell you
Sinner, you've got to believe
Live like a fool,
You'll get what's coming to you

The Fall Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : Brendan James

She is packing in slow motion the sun is coming up
I am sitting in the next room staring in my coffee cup
Now we are driving down the shoreline, this car is cut in two
I am quiet, she is humming, When the Stars Go Blue

And pulling up to JFK, there really isn't much to say

Don't tell me you'll write me, don't tell me you'll call
Just tell me you'll see me in the Fall
Don't give me a promise you know you'll never keep
Go and find it all and I'll see you in the Fall

Now I'm back at our apartment and nothing feels the same
Her coat is gone, her toothbrush is missing,
all the flowers start to fade
And September feels so far away

Don't tell me you'll write me, don't tell me you'll call
Just tell me you'll see me in the Fall
Don't give me a promise you know you'll never keep
Go and find it all and I'll see you in the Fall

Let you fly away from me, fate will bring you back to me
And darling that's all we have

Don't write don't call I'll see you in the Fall
Don't write don't call I'll see you in the Fall

Anything For You Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : Brendan James

I woke up early from my bed
With a secret in my head
In the back of my backyard
I keep a spaceship in the shed

I lit the engine and took the sky
From up here it looks so nice
I didn't stop until the moon, where I
Picked a flower just for you

[Refrain:]
And I fell down to you in a parachute
of newspaper rubber bands, tape, and glue
So you would see I would do anything for you
Anything for you

I didn't want to wake you up,
so I put the flower in a cup
On the floor next to your bed
Without a sound I laid my head

Drifted off into a dream
Of what has been and what could be
I saw your tears, I saw you fall
But I saw us rise, I saw it all

[Refrain]

And I never want you to know
All of the lengths I've gone
To find where the flowers grow

Love is never supposed to be
A present under our tree
I do it because I believe

[Refrain]

The Lucky Ones Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : Brendan James

On the edge of a moment,
In the land that we love,
In the time that our best has to be good enough,
Like all those before us, we start out alone,
We race from our schoolyards, into the unknown
City lights, as far as the eye can see,
You and I, we will live differently
Well I’ll take my hands,
Like loaded guns,
We’re taking a chance,
We’re the lucky ones,
This moment is yours,
This moment is mine,
And we’re gonna be fine,
Oh oh oh oh ohhh
Oh oh oh oh ohhh
Searching for love,
Counting steps as we go,
Our parents they taught us there’s no way to know,
I still hear their voices in the back of my head,
Saying, “You’ll do better than we ever did”
City lights, as far as the eye can see,
You and I, we’ll do it differently
Well I’ll take my hands,
Like loaded guns,
We’re taking a chance,
We’re the lucky ones,
This moment is yours,
This moment is mine,
And we’re gonna be fine,
Oh oh oh oh ohhh
Oh oh oh ohhh ohhh
Oh oh oh oh ohhh (We’re gonna be fine)
Oh oh oh ohhh ohhh
City lights,
Stretching from sea to sea,
You and I,
It was meant to be,
Meant to be
Yeah
Well I’ll take my hands,
Like loaded guns,
We’re taking a chance,
We’re the lucky ones,
This moment is yours,
This moment is mine,
And we’re gonna be fine yeah,
We’re gonna be fine yeah yeah oh,
This moment is yours,
This moment is mine ohhh,
And we’re gonna be fine,
Oh oh oh oh ohhh
We’re gonna be fine,
Oh oh oh ohhh ohhh
We’re gonna be fine,
Oh oh oh oh ohhh
We’re gonna be fine,
Oh oh oh ohhh ohhh

Stupid For Your Love Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : Brendan James

I'm smarter than your average Jonathan or Joe
I could fill a hundred suitcases with everything I know
But I am stupid for your love

Aurora borealis makes perfect sense to me,
Its light particles and magnets
I'm smart enough to see
But I am stupid for your love

I still remember 30 numbers after 3.14?
Don't ask me why

And with a Rubix cube I'll make a fool of
Anyone who tries to beat my time
But I am stupid for your love
I am stupid for your love

I love to read the classics
They're not too long for me,
I read 'em in one sitting
Like I did with War and Peace
But I am stupid for your love

And I got a lot of street smarts
From years of looking out,
I've seen the biggest cities
And I know what they're about

But I am stupid for your love

I still remember 30 numbers after 3.14?
Don't ask me why

And with a Rubix cube I'll make a fool of
Anyone who tries to beat my time

But I am stupid for your love
I am stupid for your love [4x]

Different Kind Of Love Lyrics

Artist : BRENDAN JAMES
Album : Brendan James

Driving in a trance through your lost and lonely town
Something in the air that could blow your whole house down
Something like a tragedy
Something that you think you need

Turning on a dime you pull into your local store
Aisles going by and you forget what you're looking for
Maybe it's a pot of gold
Maybe you're too lost to know

Maybe what you need is a different kind of love
One that you have never seen
Maybe all you are is a part of a star on a long journey

Maybe what you need is a better kind of love
One that you could only dream
Maybe it will take all the sorrow away
And let you feel free

Nothing like a storm in your heart to wake you up
Someone by your side and you know their not enough
Maybe you should try and stay
Maybe you should walk away

Maybe what you need is a different kind of love
One that you have never seen
Maybe all you are is a part of a star on a long journey

Maybe what you need is a better kind of love
One that you could only dream
Maybe it will take all the sorrow away
And let you feel free

Maybe you wake up to a brighter sun
Voices in your head screaming now the change has come
With a different kind of love

Maybe what you need is a different kind of love
One that you have never seen
Maybe all you are is a part of a star on a long journey

Maybe what you need is a different kind of love
Maybe all you are is a part of a star on a long journey
Maybe what you need is a better kind of love
Maybe it will take all the sorrow away and let you feel free

Close Encounter (Break) Lyrics

Artist : CEE LO GREEN
Album : Cee-Lo Green And His Perfect Imperfections

Don't cry now
You know it happens to the best of us
Goodbye now
And don't forget about the rest of us
I'm staying
You never know if they can use me here
I'm praying
I won't be looking when you disappear
And everybody's looking out
For close encounters of another kind
And it won't help me if I shout
But I'm getting pretty close this time
You're on my mind
Don't worry
I should have told you to beware of me
Don't hurry
Come back to see whatever's left of me
I've cried some
But I suppose I'm getting colder now
You've died some
But even you are getting older now
And everybody's looking out
For close encounters of another kind
And it won't help me if I shout
But I'm getting pretty close this time
You're on my mind, all of the time
Don't cry now
Don't cry now

Big Ole Words (Damn) Lyrics

Artist : CEE LO GREEN
Album : Cee-Lo Green And His Perfect Imperfections

Mm hmm
Ok, Ok
Yeah
Y'all thought I lost it

[Verse One: Cee-Lo]
In no fashion have I lost my passion for the pen
It's just that lately life has been a lost less inspirin
To tell you the truth trials and tribulations is very tirin
I gotta play a little game of gimmick and gunfirin
I'm not aspirin to be any lower or higher than,
I get equal as in eye to eye again
I'm the truth, I'm complicated I'm all ready but try again
I've got to die once to never ever die again
And what I believe within I engrave within my skin
And one thang that I ain't is a saint without a sin
How could there be a now if there never was a then?
That is unbalanced just like the yang without the yen
I am distinguishably deeper as opposed to the paper-thin
And I breathe oxygen, and you rhymin bout rocks again
You stagnant, standing still enough to feel the world spin
I'm beginning to smell the end in the path of the blowing wind
Hopefully I'm fortunate enough to spend forever with a friend
I'm slow dancing with destiny every day until then
When I first got my big break I said that I would never bend
And discredit my character to keep up or contend
And my belief beat baseline secrete such a special blend
I am not like them at all and I cannot pretend
I am not like you at all and I cannot pretend.

[Hook]
DAMN
That shit was funky
You heard that nigga?

DAMN
Shawty Lo
(yup, c'mon)

[Verse Two: Cee-Lo]
I get off on an extension or compare comprehension
I'm in a classroom of my own, I'm too far gone for competition
Yet I'm never obnoxious with my obvious ambition
Perfectly imperfect is my dimension's definition
I engage my pen pierces the page so that it bleeds my intention
With honorable mention of God's divine intervention
I'm incredible I'm inevitable and there's no possible prevention
I'll hardly (have to) scream my dream and I'll have your undivided attention
The powers that be will be beaten into submission
And you will be able to see my revolution on television
You'll get an aneurysm fuckin around with my head on collision
With the power to get you dead and half the dead risen
I remember when my development was arrested
I was doin time on my mind misguided and misdirected
I was sick, so sick if I spoke to you you'd be infected
Then my conscience was cleared of all charges and I came out corrected
Reinvented, refined, replenished and well rested
On a mission for a medium to manifest the thoughts I collected
After that everything I breathed upon, I blessed it
I committed crimes of passion and my soul was suspected
But it was thrown out of court because of course the Creator and I connected
He told me, "fear not for thou art protected. Your life is being requested
And you are being tested, so make every attempt you can to expect the unexpected."

[Hook]

Mm mm mm
Boy that Lo boy

DAMN
Oh Lawd
Cee-Lo why you do it like that?
You aint have to bustin all like that, man
Makin these lil rappers feel like they can't rap

DAMN
I got some more, I got some more if you want some.

[Verse Three: Cee-Lo]
I am internally evolving entirely
Extensive eclectic expression eloquently
Instantly innovative, Courageously creative
I'm driven, this God given gift it comes naturally to the native
Not a need for the dramatics or the systematic
Simplicities, strictly science and mathematics
The mastermind of the mighty mystical and magical moves
And metaphors manifests masterpieces
Thoroughly fury through the inner mind's eye establishes this syn-thesis
Of these innermost, insightful, intriguing interpretations of extreme intelligence
My commonsense is no co-incidence
Caution: competitors approach carefully
I'm able to see
Rare ranges of distance, I expect respect
There's no tolerance for negligence, never
You'll forever
Feel the wrath of the pure and powerful poetry, permanently
Pre-meditative, political, critical, compellin, story-tellin
Defining desire, faith fuelin the fire
Brilliance, ?? philosophical, psychological willingly waging warfare,
Withstandin, commandin, demandin the listening ears to hear what God's forcin
Instead endorsin education. Equality, not hate
Just revolution of the mind state
Note mere words but emotions
Which is essential, influential provin my people's potential
Militancy, innocence, insight, listen to God then write
Since my birth date I been tight!
Shit

[Hook]

Now I don't want never hear nobody else say
goddamn a nigga from the South can't rhyme
NEVER!

DAMN
Hehehe...Now can I do my shit??

Closet Freak Lyrics

Artist : CEE LO GREEN
Album : Cee-Lo Green And His Perfect Imperfections

Yeah.. ooh..
You so freaky..
You so freaky shorty..
Ooh you so freaky..
Shit, you so freaky shorty..
Uh uh, you so freaky..
Ooh Lord, you so freaky..
Mmm uh, you so freaky shorty..
HAH HAH!!

[Cee-Lo]
Now everybody that's grown got skeleton bones they got hidden away
Yes y'all there's a freak in us all, yet some choose not to say
You can't let those who ain't yet, make you they lil' ball of clay
Be free and express yourself, nastiness comes naturally
Listen to me now
It could be the way I wanna freak a song, tattoos, or the way I dress
Or it could be; I wanna walk my way and refusin to follow the rest
Or when people haven't been where you been
and they say you still going too far
Or when you wit ya girl and
Pull over and fuck somethin in the back of the car

[Hook]
I'm a freak!
A closet freak!
A freak!
Awwww a freak!

[Cee-Lo after each pause in hook]
I'm so excited, go on and say it
Oh I'm a freak, yes I'm a freak, and just can't fight it
I'm so excited, go on and say it
If you a freak, say you a freak, don't try to fight it

[Cee-Lo]
You got to let the music freak your mind
All the way, if yo' brain leavin don't mind
You know a boyfriend thing is hard to find
Get on the floor mama and bump and grind
Ain't nuttin wrong wit - You only gon' get
But it ain't no fun if you been freakin all mo'nin
I'll turn you on to it - if you want you gon' do it
All you got to do is find somebody like you

[Hook]
A freak!
A closet freak!
A freak!
Awwww a freak!

[Cee-Lo after each pause in hook]
I'm so excited, go on and say it
Oh I'm a freak, yes I'm a freak, and just can't hide it
I'm so excited, go on and say it
If you a freak, say you a freak
(Wait a minute, where the God-damn horns?)

[music plays with Cee-Lo vocalizing and singing]

Rock! Roll! Roll! Roll! Roll!
Well every time that you're allowed to see the morning sun
It's a reminder that your life ain't done
Wake Up and Live
Wake Up and Live RIGHT NOW

I keep believing I can fly find my reasons why
The only way you'll ever earn to die is if you live
You Got To Live RIGHT NOW

And don't you let nobody tell you what you can do
Ain't another minute promised to you
You Better Live
I Said Live RIGHT NOW

You got to cherish every moment, carelessness is a crime
Revelation gon' be right on time
You Better Live
You Better Live RIGHT NOW

Yes sir, yes sir, yes sir, yes sir
LIVE! I Said Live RIGHT NOW
Yes sir, yes sir, yes sir, yes sir
LIVE! I Said Live RIGHT NOW

And to the hustlers grindin' on the block every day
I know sometimes it got to be that way
You Got To Live
You Got To Live RIGHT NOW

And every day is like a test you say you doing you best
And you see a nigga dying for less
Try To Live
Start Livin' RIGHT NOW

[Chorus]

And all that in and out of jail is getting old
Let this song here save your soul
Brother Live
Start Livin' RIGHT NOW

I bet you never thought you would hear it from me
But I done change from how I used to be
I Want To Live
I Want To Live RIGHT NOW

[Chorus]

El Dorado Sunrise (Super Chicken) Lyrics

Artist : CEE LO GREEN
Album : Cee-Lo Green And His Perfect Imperfections

[chorus x8] Super Chicken

[Verse 1]
Listen now, I got a story to tell
About a bird who wanted to fly away
You see he knew that he could and he probably would
But his family said they needed him to stay
But his spirit is strong and he's been waiting so long
And he don't really want nobody to tell him daddy wrong
So excuse me I wanna go and kiss the sky
Cause these wings that I was given were inteded to fly

[chorus x8]

[Verse 2]
Everybody mad at lil' ol' me
Cause I ain't the same bird I used to be
Oh but if you had a dream, something you wanted to do
I sure wouldn't be the one to keep it from you

[singing]
I can't let nobody hold me down
This is my life and that's my sky
I was born to fly

[chorus x8]

[Verse 3]
Look it here
This is nothing I should fear
This should down and disappear
I done lost my fear
I don't know if you seen what I saw
But I hope someday you'll see it my way
I believe
I believe
I can breath
I believe I can find some happiness
I know that ya watch me grow but don't worry 'bout me
Cause I'm gonna be ok
I wanna sing, wanna dance, wanna scream, wanna shout
I wanna be everything I am
I ain't nobody's fool
Nobody's child no more
I'm a full grown man
I used to wonder if I could
If I would
If I should and I know I got to know
And now three ain't no doubt in my mind
I can do it, I can do it, I know I can

[chorus x8]

[singing]
If I couldn't fly
I might well die
Let me go human, can't go hold my hand no more
Let me go
Let me be, set me free
Let me go

[chorus x8]
[more singing]
[chorus x20: fading until end]

One For The Road Lyrics

Artist : CEE LO GREEN
Album : Cee-Lo Green And His Perfect Imperfections

Yeah, mmm mmm mmm, yeah that sho' feel good.
Hello! I go by the name of simply Cee-Lo Green - how do you do?
Welcome. I thought I'd seize this opportunity to tell you a little
bit more about myself if you don't mind. This is my vision.
YouknowhatI'msaying? Check me out now. Uhh

I have millenniums of material and rivers of rhythm
An entire ocean of emotion that's enlightening to swim in
Also a forest of feeling, beaten paths of peace
Trapped inside my silhouette I have to speak to release
Demanding more from the pen than I horde from the pen
The line between playing to win and sin is thin
But I walk it with grace and I talk it with taste
I am that raw, simply put, and I rest my case; it's elementary
Yet far more than resources to pay the rent for me
Everything that I've done is divine
Ask God, he'll tell ya, yeah, he mine
So, you see, you don't need another thug out of me
That is the last thing I plan to be on this LP
But I'ma go slip into something mo' comfortable and continue the lesson
No inconvenience at all, I insist on leaving an impression

So relax, and ride out. Relax, okay, and ride out
Just relax, and ride out. Players, relax, and ride out

I also solicit visual verbalism worth a visit
Intensely exquisite artism inquire all. Who is it?
It's a deliciously daring delicacy I eat to exist
Oh, he's waving those words, I want seconds and thirds
Oh, hush. That's awful kind of you, you're making me blush
I could use some competition, but they not making me much
Man, this beat is like my master, it's making me bust
Hip-hop is suffering, meaning I'm a necessity, if nothing
But you like every other rapper - cornrows and a bandana
But I get a hundred and fifty thousand dollar check
every three months off Santana
Don't you fuck up, though, my family is the whole side of Atlanta
Now, how can I say? Okay, let me just put it this way
If anyone ever contests my conquest my gun best
Yo son just, takes one time to be one less
Til you run and tell the rest that I'm the best
I sang sweet, but brang heat to bang meat
We all on the same street
And it's not that often I verbalize the essential element of surprise
I am not one of these thug rapper guys
But this one will help you realize, and use both eyes to recognize
the type of action that this amount of money buys
Now listen son, let me drop some shit on you man
I can just "do-do-do-do-do-do-do" and put a hit on you man
Aith hot heat that will make your heart beat quit on you man
And Mr. Dawson'll find a pretty box to fit all you man

So relax, and ride out. Just relax, young man, and ride out
Hey, you better relax, and ride out. Okay? Just relax, and ride out

I could take that shit all day
But if I only had sixteen more bars to live
I'd get high, and hopefully O.D. on an alternative
I'd give a dim lit dream, a colour scheme
And I'd swim for the sun (so far) no matter how impossible that may seem
I'd bury my feet in the foundation of a forest Becoming one with
everything there
I would be long. I would be right and wrong. But I'd be rare
And then I would pretend I didn't care. Use my fear
And pray that my forever would be fare.
And I love you all, unconditional, I get misty already missing y'all
And then I forgive those who rhyme to kill the time
While mine cultivate the consciousness and
Chill the spine, heal the mind, yet still sublime

Ride out. Relax, and ride out. Relax, and ride out. Relax, and ride out
This is one for the road. Yeah. One time for your motherfucking mind
I told how you motherfucking play. D.F. y'all. Believe this. Yeah
Shouts out to Outkast, Goodie Mob. Yeah, Backbone, where ya at brother?
(Hey) Hahaha. Alright. (Easy now) Hahaha. Yeah. Can't nobody stop me now
No, sir. Yeah. I'm gone, y'all. Oh, man. It's lovely. Ahahah. Yeah
Somebody better stop me. Hahaha. Cause I'm good. Heheheheh. Yeah. Hahahahah
Alright now. Heheheh. Yeah. Alright, we gonna relax, cause it feels so good
Everybody doing their godamn thing. Yeah
