Mercenary Territory Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : The Last Record Album
Is it the lies?
Is it the style?
It's a mercenary territory
I wish you knew the story
I've been out here so long dreamin up songs
I'm temporarily qualmless and sinking

I've did my time in that rodeo
It's been so long and I've got nothing to show
Well I'm so plain loco
Fool that I am I'd do it all over again

Is it the style?
Is it the lies?
Is it the days into nights
Or the "I'm sorry"s into fights

Now some kind of man, he can't do anything wrong
If I see him I'll tell him you're waiting
'Cause I'm devoted for sure but my days are a blur
Well your nights turn into my mornings

Well I did my time in that rodeo
Fool that I am I'd do it all over again

Is it love keeps you waiting so long
Makes you say I'll see you around
The forces that be, they just don't see
While your nights turn into my mornings

Is it the style?
Is it the lies?
Is it the days into nights
Or the "I'm sorrys" into fights

Hi Roller Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Time Loves A Hero
Hi roller and a lowball jack
Stuck outside trying to truck it on back
Marooned on a lake, in a bad boder town
Watchin' the marks lay their money down
Hey now Jack, say hi, here's a sight to see
There's a queen of hears, and her fancy's free
Ace in the hole, it feels so nice
I'm just a fool, in a pair of dice

So hi roller, you're a lowball Jack
Stuck out of luck, get on back
She said she's a winner, that was easy to see
I told her there was something she could do for me, yeah

Lady, oh lady, be the wild card in my hand
I can't win for losing
In this no man's land
I been dealin' from the bottom
The bottom of the deck
Blind alleys and dead ends, it's a lousy
Shipwreck

Time Loves A Hero Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Time Loves A Hero
Well they say that time loves a hero
But only time will tell
If he's real he's a legend from heaven
If he ain't he was sent here from hell

Hear me well
Seeing ain't always believing
Just make sure it's the truth that you're seeing
Eyes sometimes lie, eyes sometimes lie
They can be real deceiving

I got an uncle in Puerto Rico
Spends his days in the sun
And his nights in the casinos
He left the States many years ago
Took a fishing boat to Puerto Rico
Now my aunt she is sad and lonely
She'll never know that she drove him away
As a coward I admire his courageous ways

Well they say that time loves a hero
But only time will tell
If he's real he's a legend from heaven
If he ain't he's a mouthpiece from hell

Some say my uncle that he's a zero
His life as a shell, he left it back at Stateside
I'd say he's doing well without his shell
Bumming 'round the beaches of Puerto Rico
The beauty of the sunrise and sunset
To his friends he wish he could tell
They're at home still running for bells
Better San Juan than that blue collar hell

Well they say that time loves a hero
But only time will tell
If he's real he's a legend from heaven
If he ain't he was sent here from hell

Rocket In My Pocket Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Time Loves A Hero
My baby called me up
She said, "Why don't you ever take me out?
Pick me up in your brand new car
You shake the short change from your old fruit jar"

I put on my dancin' shoes
We headed straight for the rhythm and blues
The music was hot, but my baby was not

I've got a rocket in my pocket

Old Folks Boogie Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Time Loves A Hero
Off Our Rockers, Actin' Crazy
With the Right Medication We Won't Be Lazy
Doin' the Old Folks Boogie
Down On the Farm
Wheelchairs, They Was Locked Arm in Arm
Paired Off Pacemakers With Matchin' Alarms
Gives Us Jus' One More Chance
To Spin One More Yarn

And You Know That You're Over the Hill
When Your Mind Makes a Promise That Your Body Can't Fill
Doin' the Old Folks Boogie
And Boogie We Will
'cause to Us the Thought's As Good As a Thrill

Back At the Home,
No Time Is Your Own,
Facillities There, They're All Out On Loan
The Bank Forclose, and Your Bankruptcy Shows
And Your Credit Creeps to An All-time Low
So You Know, That You're Over the Hill
When Your Mind Makes a Promise That Your Body Can't Fill

Try and Get a Rise From An Atrophied Muscle,
And the Nerves in Your Thigh Just Quivers and Fizzles
So You Know, That You're Over the Hill
When Your Mind Makes a Promise That Your Body Can't Fill

Red Streamliner Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Time Loves A Hero
Red streamliner rollin'
Rollin' down the track the things you see
With your wheels in motion through desert, mountain, ocean
I hear you every night, is it a dream?

Red streamliner rollin' down, comin' down on me
Red streamliner rollin', rollin' long so free
Your past keeps comin' back on me
To far and near, away from here

Where people move a mile a minute
This hurricane livin' with you and me in it
Long into the night, that whistle offers light

Red streamliner rollin'
I wish you'd tell me 'bout the things you see
I'm lookin', lookin' down the tracks you ride
Knowin' that they're your only guide
I see them every night, is it a dream?
And when the sidewalks roll up at night
Just as stations pass by

Once the leader of the wild, wild west
Hurricane livin' been a lifelong song
Now you're cast of steel and cast aside
Broken dreams maybe, but you haven't died

New Delhi Freight Train Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Time Loves A Hero
Some people think that I must be crazy
But my real name is just Jesse James
An I left them half-crocked, hard-knocks of black rock county
Just to ride on that New Delhi Train
Ridin on that New Delhi Freight Train
Ridin down that New Delhi Line
Ridin on that New Delhi Freight Train
Well I left my love behind
Yeah I left my love behind
Yeah I'm just a country boy without angels
Ahhh just a country boy without gold
An I been to silver cities load of rainbows
Where I pillaged and I killed and I stole
Ridin on that New Delhi Freight Train
Ridin down that New Delhi Line
Ridin on that New Delhi Freight Train
Well I left my life behind
Yeah I left my life behind
Then I killed a man named smilin Jordan (Jeer-dun)
Yeah I killed him with one of my guns
And I knew that I had did what I had not ought to
But I welcomed the run from what I'd done
Ridin on that New Delhi Freight Train
Ridin down that New Delhi Line
Ridin on that New Delhi Freight Train
Well I left my guns behind
Yeah I left my guns behind
[Repeat]

Keepin' Up With The Joneses Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Time Loves A Hero
Keepin' up with the Joneses is killing me
Go on and hang that man who says the best things in life are for free
Keepin' up with the Joneses is killing me
She's just one more bad habit I was too blind to see
The lady and I was happy at first
Just livin' from day to day
Off the wall came the call said we're destined to fall
If I don't bring home more pay
Keepin' up with the Joneses is killing me
Go on and hang that man who says the best things in life are for free
Keepin' up with the Joneses is killing me
She's just one more bad habit I was too blind to see
She spent all my money just like it was spare change
I wonder what I'll lose first my life or my mind
Don't know the doors from the windows
Shee keeps me amused, damaged, and abused
And she said "Small change don't make no sense
And your words are worthless too
And ya best bring home more bacon, darlin',
Or you and me is through"
Keepin' up with the Joneses is killing me
Go on and hang that man who says the best things in life are for free
Keepin' up with the Joneses is killing me
She's just one more bad habit I was too blind to see

Missin' You, I'm Missin' You
All Those Lovely Things You Do
I Tell Ya True, It Hurts Theway I'm Missin' You

Nashville At Sunrise
Rains Poundin' On My Window

To Witness One More Dawn a Break
Winter's Cold Outside
Oh I Broke Down and Cried

'cause I'm Missin' You, I'm Missin' You
And All Those Lovely Things You Do
I'll Tell Ya True It Hurts the Way I'm Missin' You

'cause I'm Missin' You, I'm Missin' You
And All Those Lovely Things You Do
I'll Tell Ya True It Hurts the Way I'm Missin' You

Down On The Farm Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Down On The Farm
They all asked about you
Down on the farm
The cows asked, the pigs asked
The horses asked, too
All want to know why to the city
You moved, changed your name to Kitty
What's come over you?
It ain't true; it ain't true, Linda Lou
Say it ain't true, Linda Lou
It ain't true; it ain't true, Linda Lou
Say it ain't true, Linda Lou

They's all bawling 'bout you
Down on the farm
The cows bawl, the pigs bawl
The horses bawl, too
Miss you so much that crying's
All we can do
Weeping and wailing, praying
You'll come home soon

It ain't true; it ain't true, Linda Lou
Say it ain't true, Linda Lou
It ain't true; it ain't true, Linda Lou
Say it ain't true, Linda Lou

I hear you're working in a saloon
I hear ya work from midnight 'til noon
I might be from the woods
But them hours don't sound so good
What do you do in here barroom?

It ain't true; it ain't true, Linda Lou
Say it ain't true, Linda Lou
It ain't true; it ain't true, Linda Lou
Say it ain't true, Linda Lou

You can't dance so I assume
In a bag you couldn't carry a tune
I might be from the woods
But these hours don't sound so good
What you doin' in here barroom?
It ain't true; it ain't true, Linda Lou
Say it ain't true, Linda Lou
It ain't true; it ain't true, Linda Lou
Say it ain't true, Linda Lou

Six Feet Of Snow Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Down On The Farm
Six feet of snow coming through my radio
It's raining in stilettos from here clear down to Mexico
My hands they're numb from hanging on that steering wheel
They're frozen tight, hope the wind don't blow me off the road tonight
Don't you know the ice and snow is sneaking in through my windows
Don't you know how much I hate to be so cold and so alone
I'm coming home

If it wasn't for the lines that wind side by side
I'd be lying next to her, next to her tonight

Sweet New Orleans that's where my girl she waits for me
Hair so long and eyes so green
She's the prettiest girl I've ever seen

Don't you know the ice and snow
Is sneaking through this boy's window
Don't you know how much I hate to be so cold and so alone
I'm coming home

If it wasn't for the lines that wind side by side
I'd be lying next to her, next to her tonight

Perfect Imperfection Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Down On The Farm
There's a girl standin' on a corner
Watchin' love walk right out her door
She thought that love was like a shiny diamond
Blinded by the light, she did not see the flaw.

Now she's lonely, standin' there for hours
Wishin' he would change his mind
Caught in that paradox of feelings
Wonderin' why the hurt when it used to be so fine.

Love is a perfect imperfection
Sometimes happy, sometimes sad
Whenever love comes your direction
Don't you hide away, don't you hide, don't you hide.

You know that there's no reason for you to be alone
Just cause love's treason, broke, broke your happy home
How can you celebrate when all you feel is sufferin' heartache?

Goin' down to that lonely corner
Sidewalk stretchin' out beneath my feet
Wish I could walk, walk right up to her
And tell her what I know of love
What I know, it ain't always so sweet.

Love is a perfect imperfection
Sometimes happy, sometimes sad
Whenever love comes your direction
Don't you hide away, don't you hide, don't you hide.

Love is a perfect imperfection
Sometimes happy, sometimes sad
Whenever love comes your direction
Don't you hide away, don't you hide, don't you hide.

Kokomo Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Down On The Farm
Now anybody ever seen her
They call her Miss Demeanor
Watch the way she slides from side to side
Move so loose, look so good
Plays in every game she could.

Now she smell so sweet, like apple pie
Oh so good 'bout, 'bout to make me die
For a slice or two I'd be a fool
'Round the neighbourhood they say
She don't give no slice away.

You can Kokomo in a China cup
Kind of love I need come from deep inside
Feel so good, oh so right
Oh so good and tight
Kokomo with me yeah, Kokomo with me yeah tonight.

Now if you ever, ever see her
Just call her Miss Demeanor
Plays in every game, game around
Always keep her aces down
Broken hearts all over town.

She can Kokomo in a China cup
Kind of love I need come from deep inside
Feel so good, oh so right
Oh so good and tight
Kokomo with me yeah, Kokomo with me yeah tonight.

Be One Now Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Down On The Farm
Well I see you so far away
In my memory you will stay
There's a good life, a right way to go
But sometimes I feel so low.

If you wanna love me, wanna be my friend
Be one now, be one now
And you say you need me and you want to share
Darlin', where's your love? Oh darlin', where?

Take a chance, you can't play it safe
Trust your soul, you won't lose your face
Sometimes right but more times wrong
Wrong can turn out right they say
Just a different shade of grey.

There's a moonrise in an eastern sky
Clouds they try but cannot hide
And the storm will cease and the sun will shine
Roll away for all mankind.

If you wanna love me, wanna be my friend
Be one now, be one now
And you say you need me and you say you care
Darlin', where's your love darlin'? Where?

There's a way to better life
Hesitate, you know you'll pay the price
If you ever slip and fall
There's a love here after all, a love here after all.

It's a new day, never mind the past
Lay it down cause it won't last
And you say you need me and you say you care
Where's your love darlin'? Oh darlin', where?

If you wanna love me, wanna be my friend
Be one now, be one now
And you say you need me and you really care.

Straight From The Heart Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Down On The Farm
It was a mystery, one of a kind
There's no doubt about it
Over my shoulder I was lookin' to see
Just what was comin', comin' at me.

One step up, two steps back
Right on the money, got me right on the line
Straight from her heart, straight into mine
Feelin' I'm gettin' comin' through fine
I'm gettin' it straight from the heart.

Try to remember, don't you forget
Don't ever doubt it
Up from behind, just hiding from view
The love of a lifetime may sneak in on you.

One step up, two steps back
Right on the money, clear down the line
Straight from the heart, straight to your mind
The love that you're gettin' is comin' through fine
You're gettin' it straight from the heart.

You're lookin' so puzzled, no need to be
Didn't I tell you, don't ever doubt me.

One step up, two steps back
What got behind you, well it got through to me yeah
Straight from the heart, straight to your mind
The love that you're gettin' is comin' through fine
You're gettin' it straight from the heart.

Gettin' it, gettin' it straight from the heart
Gettin' it, gettin' it straight from the heart
Gettin' it, gettin' it straight from the heart...

Front Page News Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Down On The Farm
Don't it always seem to hit you?
Right when you think you can lay back easy
Those times are hard to come by
Sittin' still with nothin' on your mind.

Memories are friends that you had
It's so clear if you need to see
I can count on you, you can count, you can count on me.

Those clouds outside your doorway
Don't seem so dark or move so fast
If you keep on rocking long as it keeps raining
Back and forth on your porch
Just keep on rocking, keep on rocking.

If I could only tell you what I feel now
It's been so long inside of me
All the years that I've been trying
To stay in touch, to stay in line
Trying just to be myself, be myself and no one else.

Front page right through to back page
Have I got news for you?

You know the story, it's the truth, love's the proof
If you keep on rocking long as it keeps raining
Back and forth on your porch
Just keep on rocking, keep on rocking.

Have I got news for you?
Front page, back page
Have I got news for you?
Front page, back page
Have I got news for you?

Wake Up Dreaming Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Down On The Farm
Maybe there's another place
Some other time or space
I never have to leave something to believe
Maybe love will find a way
And this time come to stay
Another way to be if love could just find me.

But I wake up dreamin' again
And oh the things I see
I wake up dreamin' again
I only wish I knew how to make this dream come true.

Every new day brings
Sunshine and everything
I've seen it somewhere before
One more reason why
I don't let it pass me by
Another way to feel with a love that can be real.

I wake up dreamin' again
And oh the things I see
I wake up dreamin' again
I only wish I knew how to make this dream come true.

Maybe there's another place
Some other time or space
I never have to leave something to believe
Maybe love will find a way
And this time come to stay
Another way to be if love could just find me.

I wake up dreamin' again
And oh the things I see
I wake up dreamin' again
I only wish I knew how to make this dream come true.

I wake up dreamin' again
Oh and the things I see
I wake up dreamin' again
I only wish I knew how to make this dream come true.

Feel The Groove Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Down On The Farm
Don't you know it's the way you go?
You can get further, sure can be murder
Try too hard, that ain't so smart
First you start tripping then you start slipping.

I, I like peace of mind
Leaving my troubles in the wind behind
I like groovin', doin' what I do
If you like to feel good, can you feel the groove?

Can't you see what you trying to be?
You can never make it if you try and fake it
Pick and choose, win or lose
You can last longer if you're a little bit stronger.

Feel the groove, you got to feel the groove
Feel the groove, you ought to feel the groove
Feel the groove, you got to feel the groove
Feel the groove, you ought to feel the groove.

Negative attitudes
Like a fire that's burning, all the things you should be learning
And positive attitudes
Help you in growing towards the things you should be knowing.

I, I like peace of mind
Leaving my troubles in the wind behind
I like groovin', doin' what I do
If you like to feel good, can you feel the groove?

Feel the groove, you got to feel the groove
Feel the groove, you ought to feel the groove
Feel the groove, you got to feel the groove
Feel the groove, you ought to feel the groove.

You'll never make it if you fake it
You got to feel the groove, you got to feel the groove
You'll never make it if you fake it
You ought to feel the groove, you ought to feel the groove
You'll never make it if you fake it
You got to feel the groove, you got to feel the groove
You'll never make it if you fake it
You ought to feel the groove, you ought to feel the groove.

Hate To Lose Your Lovin' Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Let It Roll
Last night I sat my baby right down
And said the talk's all round the town
You're cheatin' while I work all day
I guess that feelin's finally gone
And I got so tired of spendin' my nights alone
So I packed my bags and I'm goin' away

But I sure would hate to lose your lovin' don't you know
If you said good-bye it just wouldn't feel right some how
'Cause it felt so good
Whole lot better than I thought it could
Honey I hate to lose you now

Well I swore I wouldn't sit and cry
'Cause my baby left me both high and dry
Wouldn't sit and pine gonna move on down the line
Well I knew just what I had to do
Had to find me some love that's new
'Cause lovin's so easy to find

But I sure would hate to lose that lovin' don't you know
If you said good-bye it just wouldn't feel right some how
'Cause it felt so good
Whole lot better than I thought it could
Honey I hate to lose you now

But I think it's gonna be all right
'Cause I found a little girl last night
And she said you better just move on in
'Cause I got my rent paid through next week and I'll be out tonight
But don't ya know I'll do my best to be back by ten

I sure would hate to lose that lovin' don't you know
If you said good-bye it just wouldn't feel right some how
'Cause it felt so good
Whole lot better than I thought it could
Honey I hate to lose you now
Don't you know
Honey I hate to lose you now
Tryin to tell you
Honey I hate to lose you now

One Clear Moment Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Let It Roll
I see you lookin' 'round searchin' for some good times girl
Ain't no doubt about it, nothin' sweeter in this world
Forget the ringin' on your party line
I'll be there in person and I'll be right on time
Give me just one clear moment
I can turn your head around
All I need is one clear moment
To get you back up off the ground

I see you cryin' and I don't know why
The way you look you should be flyin' high
In that one clear moment

Overheard you talkin' 'bout your lover walkin' out the door
It's just the same sad story, you know we've heard it all before
We've all been kicked we've all been pushed around
I'll claim your heart back from the lost and found

Give me just one clear moment
I can turn your head around
All I need is one clear moment
To get your feet back up off the ground

I hear you callin' for some sympathy
I got the answer that can set you free
In that one clear moment

You're wonderin' how I'll make your grey skies blue
I see the doubt in your eyes, but what I say is true

Ah gimme that one clear moment
I can turn your head around
All I need is one clear moment
To get you back up off the ground

I hear you callin' for some sympathy
I got the answer that will set you free
In that one clear moment

Cajun Girl Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Let It Roll
Serious blue eyes, so pale and so shy
Look closer 'cause she's got that look in her eye
Red hair that sails on a soft southern breeze
Fingers that fly on accordion keys

You ain't seen nothin', 'till you've seen my cajun girl
She's really somethin', my sweet singing cajun girl

Cook cajun, speak creole, and lay on the spice
Her fancy so free on these Saturday nights
She sings and she plays at the parish hall dance
Big city chanteuses just don't stand a chance

You ain't seen nothin', 'till you've seen my cajun girl
She's really somethin', my sweet singing cajun girl

Might find me a dream, just West of New Orleans
If you pole up the bayou St. John
The way twin fiddles play
And she squeezes her box until dawn
All night they carry on

Tell long leg Lucille I must send my regrets
It's nothin' she's done, it's just someone I met
With innocent heart, true talent so rare
She bloom on the bayou, this flower so fair

You ain't seen nothin', 'till you've seen my cajun girl
She's really somethin', my sweet singing cajun girl
You ain't seen nothin', 'till you've seen my cajun girl

Might find me a dream, just West of New Orleans
If you pole up the bayou St. John
The way twin fiddles play
And she squeezes her box until dawn
All night they carry on

Hangin' On To The Good Times Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Let It Roll
Hey old friend, it's been such a long time
Since I saw your smilin' face pressed against my window pane
Though it's the middle of the night
And we were racin' the light of the mornin'
All those new thoughts dawnin'
About the wrong and the right
We spent our money so fine
The girls were standing in line
Every other night
Was always the same
Paradise without any shame

We'd stay up all night
Tryin' to find just the right rhymes
And we were fightin' the good fight
Hangin' on to the good times

Jaunita she's a little bit older now
Spotcheck Billy looks just the same
Three card monte on the boulevard
With mirrors on his shoes

And I just have to laugh
When I recall the time down in New Orleans
Don't ya know
Rained us out of an indoor show
We spent our money so fine
The girls were standin' in line
Down in the quarters at lucky Pierre's
A time of our life without any cares

We'd stay up all night
Tryin' to find just the right rhymes
And we were fightin' the good fight
Hangin' on to the good times

Yes old friend we had some times
And later on the moon declined
To shine its light so benevolently
It's grace withheld from our company
And though we went our own ways
We couldn't escape from where we came
So we find ourselves back at the table again
Tellin' stories of survivors and friends

We'd stay up all night
Tryin' to find just the right rhymes
And we were fightin' the good fight
Hangin' on to the good times
Up all night
Tryin' to find just the right rhymes
And we were fightin' the good fight
Hangin' on to the good times
Up all night
Tryin' to find just the right rhymes
And we were fightin' the good fight
Hangin' on to the good times

Listen To Your Heart Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Let It Roll
Lookin' out on the evening light
You see the lightnin' and the thunder rollin' in
As you strain to keep that setting sun in sight
Ya start to get that Summer feelin' back again
Of a time
Lost in illusion
Not afraid to cross that line

You don't have to close your eyes
You don't have to turn away
You can't expect to take the right road every morning
When you start to feel the words get in the way
Listen to your heart
And what it has to say

You say you're searchin' for some common ground
The golden thread that keeps us all together
And you wish these troubled times would turn around
Bring back just a little warmer weather to your life
To shine through the sorrow
And not fade out with the morning light

But you don't have to close your eyes
You don't have to turn away
You can't expect to take the right road every morning
When you start to feel the words get in the way
Listen to your heart
And what it has to say

You say you're lookin' to leave the danger zone
Lookin to leave off all this pain and sorrow
And you hate so much to live your life alone
But with half a chance you'd say good-bye tomorrow
To be free
From all this confusion
And have it like it used to be
Soft as a Summer day
Warm as a gentle breeze
Rollin' out across the sea

But you don't have to close your eyes
You don't have to turn away
You can't expect to take the right road every morning
When you start to feel the words get in the way
Listen to your heart
And what it has to say

Let It Roll Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Let It Roll
Rollin' down highway 95
Sailin' through her hometown countryside
Move on over stand astride
My cruise control's in overdrive
Need to take my baby for a ride

Ooo she's like a smooth stretch of highway
Ooo she's like a cool Summer breeze
If my motor's runnin' right, we might lose control tonight
Got the shape I love to squeeze, looks that bring me to my knees
Oh please, let it roll tonight

Might be doin' more thahn fifty-five
When I sit my baby right down by my side
Where the rubber hit the road
This rig don't dig no overload
Come on, and let my baby ride

Ooo she's like a smooth stretch of highway
Ooo she's like a cool Summer breeze
If my motor's runnin' right, we might lose control tonight
Got the shape I love to squeeze, looks that bring me to my knees
Oh please, let it roll tonight

Now I know just how heaven feels
When she reach beneath my big old steerin' wheel
Dyna flow, power glide
Bored and stroked, I'm satisfied
When I take my baby for a ride

Ooo she's like a smooth stretch of highway
Ooo she's like a cool Summer breeze
If my motor's runnin' right, we might lose control tonight
Got the shape I love to squeeze, looks that bring me to my knees
Oh please, let it roll tonight

Long Time Till I Get Over You Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Let It Roll
Baby what's wrong with you
Have to tell ya it seemed like we were through
And your memory's almost gone
Met this girl in New York City
That took the night train all the way from Buffalo
Just to see the midnight show
And every time I start to feelin' stronger
You call me up with just the right line
Keep me hangin' on a little longer
That's where I stumble every time

I keep thinkin' it'd be all right
Wondrin' when you'd come back home
Come to your senses girl and hold me tight
Love me like ya used to do
It's gonna be a long time till I get over you

I don't mind the lonely days so much
Can't take those long nights dreamin' bout your tender touch
Lyin' awake waitin' for the phone to ring
Got to my courage up
And find a way that I can cut you loose
But it don't seem to be no use
Got to tell ya every time I start to feelin' stronger
You call me up with just the right line
Keep me hangin' on a little longer
It get me every time

I keep thinkin' it'd be all right
Wondrin' when you'd come back home
Come to your senses girl and hold me tight
Love me like ya used to do
It's gonna be a long time till I get over you

Seem like every time I start to feelin' stronger
You call me up with just the right line
Keep me hangin' on a little longer
And don't it get me every time

I keep thinkin' it'd be all right
Wondrin' when you'd come back home
Come to your senses girl and hold me tight
Love me like ya used to do
It's gonna be a long time till I get over you

Business As Usual Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Let It Roll
Come home last night wishin I could unwind
Turned on the news ya know it blew my mind
Current affairs got me in a spin
People everywhere doin' each other in
Fussin' and fightin' from dusk till dawn
Lyin', stealin, wheelin', dealin', it just keeps rollin' on
Nothin but bad news and it's wearin' kind of thin
With every news situation sems to be a no win

It's just business as usual
It's just business as usual

Send in the funds, keep the faith alive
Without your checks how can we survive
We got cars in the yard, bills to pay
Crosses to bear, we got souls to save
Each and every day, people sittin' round, a Sunday go to meetin' town
T.V. prophets bringing on a judgement day
The rectory's wrecked, the preacher's funds are goin' slowin' down
Elders eyes see their good life slippin' away

It's just business as usual
It's just business as usual

If it rings of truth throw it out the window
If you need any proof, it's any way the wind blows
If you're askin' me, I'll tell you that I don't know
And so it goes, so it goes
And it's all goin' down, on the outskirts of town
I saw it on the radio, in the heart of the village
It's rape, plunder, and pillage
I got it off the press, so it must be so
It must be so

It's just business as usual
It's just business as usual
It's just business as usual
It's just business as usual

Changin' Luck Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Let It Roll
There's a feelin' in the sky tonight
Tough as nails and I feel the cold wind start to bite
Folks I meet seem so cold
Blown like leaves their faces hard and set in stone
I'd just like to know
Cold and tired, hope all gone
Just how far this road goes on
I'd just like to see
All or nothin', high or low
Just how far this game can go

Plant my feet on foreign soil
No return I crossed that mil some time ago
Cast my eyes on streets that shine
Reflect my image and I know I'm livin' on borrowed time
I'd sure like to feel
Dreams I chased so long ago
Weren't wasted miles on empty roads
I'd just like to believe
All these desperate cries I hear
Are falling on a sympathetic ear

In world of illusions
All you're left with is your changin' luch
Kisses and tears and unanswered questions
Just a child of chance with your changin' luck
Changin' luck

A song I've heard since I was young
Sounds so sweet on this lonely street, makes me cry
Askin' myself why oh why
I'm such a fool to listen to this deadly kind of lullaby
I'd just like to know
Cold and tired, hope all gone
Just how far this road goes on
I'd just like to see
All or nothin', high or low
Just how far this game can go

In world of illusions
All you're left with is your changin' luch
Kisses and tears and unanswered questions
Just a child of chance with your changin' luck
Changin' luck

Voices On The Wind Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Let It Roll
Standing by the ocean watch it tear away the shore
Glide out upon the desert, the horizon is the door
And though your voice is shouting above the wind it can't be heard
Drop all sense of reason, it's there you'll find your worth
And though you are surrounded, feeling quite alone
There's a light to guide you home

If you stand with your face to the wind off the water
At the point of lands end where the ocean begins
Look to the memory of the ones gone before
The light and meaning of the voices on the wind

Searching for safe passage as you knock on every door
You still can hear the howling of the mongrel dogs of war
You call our for some comfort seeking shelter from the night
A raging rain's upon you feeling tired of the fight
And though you are surrounded, feeling quite alone
There's a light to guide you home

If you stand with your face to the wind off the water
At the point of lands end where the ocean begins
Look to the memory of the ones gone before
The light and meaning of the voices on the wind

Their words carry over water, and fall back down to earth
What follows is the silence as you contemplate their worth
A vision comes before you, but the meaning's still unclear
Standing at the threshold as you watch it disappear
And though you are surrounded, feeling quite alone
There's a light to guide you home

If you stand with your face to the wind off the water
At the point of lands end where the ocean begins
Look to the memory of the ones gone before
The light and meaning of the voices on the wind

Texas Twister Lyrics

Artist : LITTLE FEAT
Album : Representing The Mambo
The siren song is strong sometimes... on this Texas radio
They sure do play it hard and fast while they sell it soft and low
A silky voice she spoke to me from down in San Antone
"It's ladies night in Italy, you gentlemen should know"

When I saw that neon sign, knew just where to go
Her shoulders soft so I pulled off, her headlights aglow
A bartender said to me, boy I want you to meet my sister
She's high-strung and a little young, but she's a real Texas twister
A real Texas twister

I said "How young is too young? How fast is too fast?
Well how high is too high? How high is too high?"
She said "How long is this ride?" Well how long can you last?
You're gonna find out mister, when you meet that Texas twister

Well in the light she looked all right when we stepped outside
I knew that it was meant to be when she begged me for a ride
That bartender said to me, boy take your money back
Before you're done you're gonna need it son -
You might have a heart attack

I seen the sights now, Paris, Rome, and I ain't sentimental
I still remember how she said "Is this a Continental?"
No babe it's just for flash and I paid cash, she hugged me up real tight
Lay back honey I'll drive you home 'round the world tonight

She knew where every roadhouse lies, clear down to the border
Long neck Lone Stars just her size, clearly made to order
Knew how to paint a cowboy town, long before I missed her
She picked me up; she put me down, she's a real Texas twister

I said "How young is too young? How fast is too fast?
Well how high is too high? How high is too high?"
She said "How long is this ride?" Well how long can you last?
You're gonna find out mister, when you meet that Texas twister

Now Is The Start Lyrics

Artist : A FINE FRENZY
Album : Pines
Hey

Hey
Do you hear, do you hear
That sound
It's the sound of the lost gone found
It's the sound of a mute gone loud
It's the sound of a new start

Kiss
With a mouth of shooting stars
Of lost and broken hearts
Unafraid you can name your scars
With a touch of a new heart

It sounds like
It sounds like
It sounds like

Ladeedadadadada, dadadadada
Now, oh, now is the start

Oh
And it goes with where you go
Don't lose faith for the friends
You don't
Need a thing, you already know
You are right as you are

And it sounds like
It sounds like
Oh, it sounds like

Ladeedadadadada, dadadadada
Now, now
Ladeedadadadada, dadadadada
Now, oh
Now is the start, oh
Now is the start

Hey, hey, hey, hey

New start in the end
There is a
New heart under there
Beneath these
New parts everywhere
It is a new, new, new, new start
Now is the start

It sounds like
Oh, it sounds like
Oh, it sounds like

Ladeedadadadada, dadadadada
Now, now
Ladeedadadadada, dadadadada
Now, oh, now is the start
Oh, now is the start
Now is the start
Now is the start
Now is the start
Now is the start

It sounds like
It sounds like
It sounds like

Woman Down Lyrics

Artist : ALANIS MORISSETTE
Album : Havoc And Bright Lights
First woman down was your mother
She did condone how you behave
All you could see was your father
His disrespect was in her face
Next woman down was your sister
Her silence did corroborate
She took her cues from the climate
And never knew another way

Who do you take me for?

Calling all woman haters
We’ve lowered the bar on the
Behavior that we will take – come on now
Calling all lady haters
Why must you vilify us?
Are you willing to clean the slate? – woman down
Woman down

Next woman down was your lover
She takes your spite at value face
Even her hair length and color
Gives you the impulse to repeat

Who do you take me for?

Calling all woman haters
We’ve lowered the bar on the
Behavior that we will take — come on now
Calling all lady haters
Why must you vilify us?
Are you willing to clean the slate? — woman down
Woman down
Woman down

Next woman down is your daughter
A stranger to being debased
She has a new lease and limit
On the abuse she’ll tolerate

Who do you take me for?

Calling all woman haters
We’ve lowered the bar on the behavior that we will take — come on now
Calling all lady haters
Why must you vilify us
Are you willing to clean the slate? — woman down
Woman down

Til You Lyrics

Artist : ALANIS MORISSETTE
Album : Havoc And Bright Lights
I’ve been wasting time
Clawing my way to you
Taking no prisoners with my romantic crimes
I’ve been holding on imagining glimpses of you
Holding my breath while you come down the pike

Spinning my wheels around
I’m here, dodging bullets til you
Ear to the ground
I’m here, dodging bullets til you

I’ve been taking notes
Nursing the thought of you
Research and deliver 'cause I’m biding my time
I’ve been holding on this magnet that calls to you
Entertaining myself with these consolation prizes

Spinning my wheels around
I’m here, dodging bullets til you
Ear to the ground
I’m here, dodging bullets til you

They’ve become too fond
But mere placeholders for you
They fill the stance card
As you form in my mind

Spinning my wheels around
I’m here, dodging bullets til you
Ear to the ground
I’m here, dodging bullets til you

Til you

Celebrity Lyrics

Artist : ALANIS MORISSETTE
Album : Havoc And Bright Lights
I have tasted stardom since before I breathed
My young and hungry daddy murdered for me
And I have never left this ambitious city
And I've only known a lust for VIP

I have studied long and hard how to proceed
Nothing but my name in bright lights called to me
And I display the perfect amount of en oui
I'll carve my face a bit, you'll indulge me

Give me celebrity my kingdom to be famous
Tell me who I have to be
Starting to be famous

Never wonder who's pulling strings above me
Cause I'm aware of wheels, heels, and vintage Gucci
I'm on my twentieth round of vitamin v
And I'll cut my weight until you'll have me

Give me celebrity my kingdom to be famous
Tell me who I have to be
Starting to be famous

Let me into this exclusive club
Ignore my hidden agenda

I am a tattooed sexy dancing monkey
Just aloof enough to get you to want me
Hoping my persona ingratiates me
Give my life over to opportunity

Give me celebrity my kingdom to be famous
Tell me who I have to be
Starting to be famous

Empathy Lyrics

Artist : ALANIS MORISSETTE
Album : Havoc And Bright Lights
There are so many parts that I have hidden and denied and lost
There are so many ways that I have cut off my nose to spite my face

There are so many colors that I still try to hide while I paint
And there are so many tunes that I secretly sing as I wait

You come along and invite these parts out of hiding
This invitation is the one that I've stopped fighting....

Thank you for seeing me
I feel so less lonely
Thank you for getting me
I'm healed by your empathy
Oh this intimacy

There were so many times, I thought I'd die not being truly known
There've been so many moments: forever lonely in my vocation

You come along and celebrate each feeling
And there you are all honor and inquiring.......

Thank you for seeing me
I feel so less lonely
Thank you for getting me
I'm healed by your empathy
Oh this intimacy

There was a day where the trust that was being asked of me
Required too much you see
To accept your generosity
And to know myself enough to let you help me

Thank you for seeing me
I feel so less lonely
Thank you for getting me
I'm healed by your empathy
Oh this intimacy

Lens Lyrics

Artist : ALANIS MORISSETTE
Album : Havoc And Bright Lights
You and I are in the same room
We both think we're fair
We both live for truths
But then how are we to define something so subjective
Living under the same roof
So here these battles of wills
They beg for some proof
Of right versus wrong
Your approach seems better than mine
Though it's working for you all I feel is disconnection

So now it's your (your) religion 'gainst my (my) religion
My humble opinion 'gainst yours
This does not feel like love
It's your (your) conviction 'gainst my (my) conviction
And I'd like to know what we've seen
Through the lens of love… love… love… love

And so now your grand assessment
Is that I'm not in your group that I'm not your kind
And so we're locked in a stalemate with you
In your corner and me dismayed in mine

So now it's your (your) religion 'gainst my (my) religion
My humble opinion 'gainst yours
This does not feel like love
It's your (your) conviction 'gainst my (my) conviction
And I'd like to know what we've seen
Through the lens of love… love… love… love

And this stance keeps us locked in biophilias
And this lie remains about us being separate

So now it's your (your) religion 'gainst my (my) religion
My humble opinion 'gainst yours
This does not feel like love
It's your (your) conviction 'gainst my (my) conviction
And I'd like to know what we've seen
Through the lens of love… love… love… love

Spiral Lyrics

Artist : ALANIS MORISSETTE
Album : Havoc And Bright Lights
I could be daydreaming but for a moment
And somehow they're creeping back in
I could be sleeping awakened the torrent
Somehow I get caught in their grips again

And here I am in my shame spiral
I'm sucked in to it again
And I reach out for your benevolent opinion
And you bring the light back in

Don't leave me here with all these critical voices
Cause they do their best to bring me down
When I'm alone with all these negative voices
I will need your help to turn them down

I could be listening to waken the season
The story I'm not even in
These voices have their way when I am unguarded
Suddenly I step in quicksand again

Once again in my shame spiral
I am glad that you've weighed in

Don't leave me here with all these critical voices
Cause they do their best to bring me down
When I'm alone with all these negative voices
I will need your help to turn them down

All these judgements, so incisive
Voices left to their devices
This moments narratee is a desperate plea
For slack to be cut to me
Cut to me

Don't leave me here with all these critical voices
Cause they do their best to bring me down
When I'm alone with all these negative voices
I will need your help to turn them down

Numb Lyrics

Artist : ALANIS MORISSETTE
Album : Havoc And Bright Lights
I feel smothered and encumbered and defeated and drawn
Disappointed, over-extended and frustrated and shaken
This over-giving , over-loving, this care taking goes on
With no chance of intermission.
I'll be checked out, I'll be gone

Have to remove myself from sensation

Here comes the feeling
I run from the feeling and reach for the drug
Can't sit with this feeling
I'd rather be flying and comfortably numb

I feel anxious, I am nervous am bored
I'm overwhelmed, rather be out of my gourd

Have to remove myself from sensation

Here comes the feeling
I run from the feeling and reach for the drug
Can't sit with this feeling
I'd rather be flying and comfortably numb

I am lonely, I feel hungry and unloved
I feel angry, I am livid, need a hug

Here comes the feeling
I run from the feeling and reach for the drug
Can't sit with this feeling
I'd rather be flying and comfortably numb

Havoc Lyrics

Artist : ALANIS MORISSETTE
Album : Havoc And Bright Lights
Just when I thought
I had handles on this
I can soften my guard behind false confidence

Just when I felt
Humbled by insipid
Exempt from this blind-side and from reading a script
Cause I am seduced by reaction and under the influence
I'm slipping again
I'm up to old tricks off my wagon
I have no defense I'm
Wreaking havoc
Wreaking havoc and consequence

I get reduced by my own willfulness as
I reach for my usual God replacements
Cause I reach for sanction and lax in my steps

I'm slipping again
Up to my tricks off my wagon
I have no defense I'm
Wreaking havoc
Wreaking havoc and consequence

If forgiveness is understanding than
Affirming a compact for the millionth time
From this tumbling house of cards of mine

I am beaten by my impulsiveness
By this uncanny foreshadowing of regret
Cause I'm repulsed by restriction at least that's my excuse

I'm slipping again
I'm up to old tricks off my wagon
I have no defense I'm
Wreaking havoc
From v
Wreaking havoc and consequence

I'm slipping again
I'm up to old tricks off my wagon
I have no defense
I'm wreaking havoc
Wreaking havoc and consequence

Win And Win Lyrics

Artist : ALANIS MORISSETTE
Album : Havoc And Bright Lights
In my old days someone won
Those were days of win-lose
In those bleak times I was better
I sat high: looking down by a nose

Changed direction: looking up
I am not worthy to be with you
We are separate, I’m inferior
I have yearnings to sit across from you

‘Cause we’re eye to eye
We are win and win
We are equal to each other
We are flames of twin
We are offspring of truth
We are partners sister brother

Both directions speak a lie
Up or down, I can feel you
As we battle with our power
We are separate, not looking across

‘Cause we’re eye to eye
We are win and win
We are equal to each other
We are flames of twin
We are offspring of truth
We are partners sister brother

These delusions of our grandeur
We are locked in the struggle
These lies of status lower
These conclusions, we’re in trouble

‘Cause we’re eye to eye
We are win and win
We are equal to each other
We are flames of twin
We are offspring of truth
We are partners sister brother

Same value.... same value....

Receive Lyrics

Artist : ALANIS MORISSETTE
Album : Havoc And Bright Lights
I wake up and first things first
I’m of service
I make sure your needs are met, as is selfless
I give hard and serve hard and now I, I need a break
I give big, I give all and now it’s time to regenerate

[Chorus:]
Today’s all about me, all about cup filling
Today’s all about me learning how, how to receive
How to receive,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

I move on through offerings often one-sided
In this slow on list of worth over-extended
I give hard, provide hard and now I need some relief
I look out, I proffer and now I need some respect indeed

[Chorus:]
Today’s all about me, all about cup filling
Today’s all about me learning how, how to receive
How to receive,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

My habit to love you first, in me it lingers
To renew is so knee-jerk leaves me a stranger
I give hard and fight hard and now I need to retreat
I give out, dedicate and now I need to acknowledge me

[Chorus:]
Today’s all about me, all about cup filling
Today’s all about me learning how, how to receive
How to receive,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
How to receive
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
How to receive
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
How to receive
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
How to receive

Edge Of Evolution Lyrics

Artist : ALANIS MORISSETTE
Album : Havoc And Bright Lights
Here I leave my story, I leave it in the dust
Although this psychology's been entertaining enough
Herein lies the witness objective with my stuff
But we’re ready to push envelopes into full-blown consciousness

So here we go out here on the edge of evolution
Numbers growing out here on the edge of evolution

I have had my glimpses with and without substances
I have had awakenings non-abiding for the most part

And here we go out here on the edge of evolution
Numbers growing out here on the edge of evolution

In this sacred duality
The highs and lows and heres and theres
These aversions and these cravings
Push me beyond identity into pure awareness (we’re already here)

And here we are out here on the edge of evolution
We keep going out here on the edge of evolution
Here we are out here on the edge of evolution
We keep going out here on the edge of evolution

Magical Child Lyrics

Artist : ALANIS MORISSETTE
Album : Havoc And Bright Lights
It’s quiet simple when I’m listening
You keep leading me all the way home
These messages you’ve been offering
As a magical child
An essential child

It hinges on the driver’s seat
It depends on who’s in control
When i waver on the attuning
I kill a magical child
This essential child
Oh

To thine own self be true
To my core self be true

When direction is confounding
When vitality is far gone
When the spark is out, uninspiring
I call the magical child
The essential child
Oh

To thine own self be true
To my core self be true

When I’m lost and I’m unraveling
When I’m off my track and I float
When I need true north and some grounding
I call the magical child
The essential child
This angelic child
This innocent child

To thine own self be true
To my core self, be true

Angelic child
Innocent child
Magical child
Essential child

Girl On Fire Lyrics

Artist : ALICIA KEYS
Album : Girl On Fire
She's just a girl, and she's on fire
Hotter than a fantasy, longer like a highway
She's living in a world, and it's on fire
Feeling the catastrophe, but she knows she can fly away

Oh, she got both feet on the ground
And she's burning it down
Oh, she got her head in the clouds
And she's not backing down

This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire
This girl is on fire

Looks like a girl, but she's a flame
So bright, she can burn your eyes
Better look the other way
You can try but you'll never forget her name
She's on top of the world
Hottest of the hottest girls say

Oh, we got our feet on the ground
And we're burning it down
Oh, got our head in the clouds
And we're not coming down

This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire
This girl is on fire

Everybody stands, as she goes by
Cause they can see the flame that's in her eyes
Watch her when she's lighting up the night
Nobody knows that she's a lonely girl
And it's a lonely world
But she gon' let it burn, baby, burn, baby

This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire
This girl is on fire

Oh, oh, oh...

She's just a girl, and she's on fire

Beautiful Lyrics

Artist : ARCHULETA, DAVID
Album : Begin.
Every day is so wonderful
Then suddenly, it's hard to breathe
Now and then, I get insecure
From all the pain, I'm so ashamed

You are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring you down
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring you down, oh, no
So don't you bring me down today...

To all your friends you're delirious
So consumed in all your doom
Trying hard to fill the emptiness
The pieces gone, left the puzzle undone
That's the way it is

You are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring you down
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring you down, oh, no
So don't you bring me down today...

No matter what we do
(no matter what we do)
No matter what we say
(no matter what we say)
We're the song inside the tune
Full of beautiful mistakes

And everywhere we go
(and everywhere we go)
The sun will always shine
(the sun will always, always shine)
And tomorrow we might wake on the other side

We are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words won't bring us down, oh no
We are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring us down, oh no
So don't you bring me down today

Oh, yeah, don't you bring me down today, yeah
Don't you bring me down... today

Somewhere Only We Know Lyrics

Artist : ARCHULETA, DAVID
Album : Begin.
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete
Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go
Somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go
So why don't we go

This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go
Somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know

Everybody Hurts Lyrics

Artist : ARCHULETA, DAVID
Album : Begin.
When your day is long
And the night, the night is yours alone
When you're sure you've had enough
Of this life, well hang on

Don't let yourself go
'Cause everybody cries
And everybody hurts sometimes

Sometimes everything is wrong
Now it's time to sing along
When your day is night alone (Hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go (Hold on)
If you think you've had too much
Of this life, well hang on

Everybody hurts
Take comfort in your friends
Everybody hurts
Don't throw your hand, oh no

Don't throw your hand
If you feel like you're alone
No, no, no, you are not alone

If you're on your own in this life
The days and nights are long
When you think you've had too much of this life to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody cries
Everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes

So hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Everybody hurts

Don't Give Up Lyrics

Artist : ARCHULETA, DAVID
Album : Begin.
in this proud land we grew up strong
we were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail

no fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face, I've changed my name
but no one wants you when you lose

don't give up
'cos you have friends
don't give up
you're not beaten yet
don't give up
I know you can make it good

though I saw it all around
never thought that I could be affected
thought that we'd be the last to go
it is so strange the way things turn

drove the night toward my home
the place that I was born, on the lakeside
as daylight broke, I saw the earth
the trees had burned down to the ground

don't give up
you still have us
don't give up
we don't need much of anything
don't give up
'cause somewhere there's a place
where we belong

rest your head
you worry too much
it's going to be alright
when times get rough
you can fall back on us
don't give up
please don't give up

got to walk out of here
I can't take anymore
going to stand on that bridge
keep my eyes down below
whatever may come
and whatever may go
that river's flowing
that river's flowing

moved on to another town
tried hard to settle down
for every job, so many men
so many men no-one needs

don't give up
'cause you have friends
don't give up
you're not the only one
don't give up
no reason to be ashamed
don't give up
you still have us
don't give up now
we're proud of who you are
don't give up
you know it's never been easy
don't give up
'cause I believe there's a place
there's a place where we belong

News For You Lyrics

Artist : BENET, ERIC
Album : The One
Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh
You tell me love ain't been goin your way
Cause you've been searching, but good ones are hard to find
Said you won't settle for less than what your heart is asking
And life's too precious just to be wasting time.
Disappointment is something that is so familiar
You get your hopes up high, to watch them fall again
So you stopped trying to find your one in a million
And the language of your love, can't nobody comprehend.

[Chorus:]
I got news for you
Cause you don't know how I do
I got ways to make you smile
They never knew about
In the corners of your mind
That no one has tried to find
Your time for love is threw
I got news for you!
Uh, I got news for you, yeah baby!

Your body's glistening all with satisfaction
I've shown you pleasures, girl
You thought you never feel
Girl you were flying like the world was far below us
You said there's no way that I could take you higher still

[Chorus:]
I got news for you
I still got work to do
And you're thinking that I'm done
That's just when love just begun
In the corners of your mind
That no one has tried to find
Your time for love is threw
I got news for you!
Uh, I got news for you, yeah baby!

Don't you worry about me leaving, no, no, girl!
Ain't trying to be deceiving, no, no!
You said I feel good to be true
Baby I got news for you

[Chorus:]
I got news for you
Cause you don't know how I do
I got ways to make you smile
They never knew about
In the corners of your mind
That no one has tried to find
Your time for love is threw
I got news for you!
Uh, I got news for you, yeah baby!

Artist : BENET, ERIC
Album : The One
Runnin used to be the way I pass my time
All over town just to see what I could find
Every now and then I find some company
But every kiss...
I try to tell myself that it was just a game
I'd run again to try and ease that lonely pain
No matter where I travel there I'd be stuck in those walls of skin call me

And I was just runnin' to find somethin true
And I just be runnin with nothing to prove
And I can't go runnin and nothing to show
They all saw me runnin and said there he go

You cut my eye one day when I was on a run
So how you make me feel my life had just begun
I've seen the last of all my roamin and days
'Cause I grew from you I've never run oh babe

Now you got me runnin to get home to you
And my heart keeps running when I think of things you do
And I full be runnin to the one else no one
They all see me runnin and say that love is for sure oh yeah
I'm not hesitating no and as soon as work is done yeah
As fast as my legs can carry me yeah
Mhmh yeah life ain't complicated oh no
When you got only one, one heart one joy
One place to be

And now I'm watching people runnin all around
Chasing after things I will just run them down
Life is so much better if they change their way
I wish I could tell them but you know I can't stand

'Cause I gotta get runnin and get home to you, gotta get home
And my heart keep runnin when I think of things you do,
Think about the things you do
And I won't be runnin, no one else, no one no more
And now see me runnin and say that's love for sure

And my heart keep runnin when I think of things you do,

And all see me running and say that's love for sure
They all see me runnin and say that's love for sure

Hope That It's You Lyrics

Artist : BENET, ERIC
Album : The One
Oh yeah yeah
Hey, I hope I hope I hope it's you

A long time I've been alone
The one love I had was thrown away
And that was a shame
I come home and there's no phone calls
The sunset is just the light gone off
With love I'm just lost
But then I saw your face and felt my odds improve
And so I had to brave your filthy magic too

So if I ever ever ever feel the light of love again
If wishes come true (if wishes come true)
I hope that it's you (I hope that it's you)
And if I ever ever ever get a chance to hold your hand (take your hand)
I'll be sayin' I do (I'll be sayin' I do)
As long as it's you (I hope that it's you)
I hope that it's

I gave up 'cause I've been through it
But you smiled girl and I heard music playing
I ain't been the same (I never been the same)
A long while but I learned some lessons
So this time you'll get the best in me (you're gonna get the best in me)
If this is supposed to be
They say the first time is the deepest love by far
But girl it's looking like the second time's the charm

So if I ever ever ever feel the light of love again (if I ever feel that light)
If wishes come true (if wishes come true)
I hope that it's you (I hope that it's you)
And if I ever ever ever get a chance to hold your hand (hold your hand)
I'll be sayin' I do (sayin' I do)
As long as it's you (I hope that it's you)
I hope that it's

You got me thinkin' 'bout the future and you know that's not like me
No matter where we go, you make me feel it's where I'm s'posed to be
If I only had a nickel every time I said I'm through
But all the money in the world don't mean a thing if I can't have you

So if I ever ever ever feel the light of love again (if I ever feel that love light)
I hope that it's you (I hope that it's you)
Please let it be you (please let it be you)
And if I ever ever ever get a chance to take your hand (one chance to take your hand)
Oh I'm sayin' I do (sayin' I do)
I hope that it's you (I hope that it's you)

You got me hopin', girl you got me hopin'
Let's take a chance love, tell me what you think you're gonna do
I hope that it's you (I hope it's you)
Girl here it is so let's make it official (come on)
I need to know now, tell me if you feel like I do
I hope that it's you

So if I ever ever ever feel the light of love again (oh I hope I feel that light)
I hope that it's you (I hope that it's you)
Please let it be you (please let it be you)
And if I ever ever ever get a chance to take your hand (one chance to take your hand)
Oh I'm sayin' I do (sayin' I do)

Gonna Be My Girl Lyrics

Artist : BENET, ERIC
Album : The One
First time I ever saw you
Was in crowded caffe
I was starring at my future
Face to face.
You were like a loving memory,
Though we never met before
And you smiled, and my heart was yours forever more!
Of all the things I've known they came true
I've never been so sure in all my life,
I don't know how, no no
I don't know where, don't know where
I don't know what I'm gonna say
To make it all begin,
But I do know one thing, one thing
Sure as anything,
Sure love is still alive in this world
You gonna be my girl!
You gonna be, gonna be
You gonna be my girl.
I was going through soem changes
And I know I broke your heart
But I'm working on myself since we've been apart
Yes, girl...

Muzik Lyrics

Artist : BENET, ERIC
Album : The One
When I'm all alone, I hear your voice still with me
I can't find my way, you're the one who helps me see
When the air is thin, I'm caving it, it's hard to breath
I just let you in so I can find that inner peace

In my darkest hour I run to you to ease my pain
I like laughter that keeps me from going insane
You fortify, lift me up so I'm feeling strong again
You're the reason why I'm still alive

You're just like music in my life
You take the wrong and make it right
You've saved my world so many times
You're just like music in my life

You're the perfect song, the perfect time, time and time again
I can lean on you, trust in you more than any friend
When I'm looking back at my life, you never left my side
I can count on you to tell the truth though it hurts sometimes

You inspire me, never lie to me, you're never one to judge
If we share a day, I walk away feeling showered with love
Even when I don't, you're holding on, you never let me go
Unconditional, spiritual

You're just like music in my life
You feel just like my guiding light
And I've been lost so many times
You're just like music in my life

You're just like music in my life
You took my wrong and make it right
You've saved my world so many times
You're just like music in my life

Like a perfect harmony, your love stays in tune with my heart
You're bringing out the best in me and nothing's gonna keep us apart

You're just like music in my life
You take the wrong and make it right (you made it right girl)
You've saved my world so many times (many, many, many times)
You're just like music in my life

You're just like music in my life
You take my wrong and make it right
You've saved my world so many times
You're just like music in my life

You better believe it
In my life
I forget about my trouble, yeah
(I forget about my troubles) When I'm feeling down
(Forget about my troubles) When you came around
(I forget about my troubles) I just see your smile
(Forget about my troubles) When you stay a while
(I forget about my troubles) Just take my hand
(Forget about my troubles) And you understand
(I forget about my troubles) Everything is fine
(Forget about my troubles) When we spend some time

(I forget about my troubles) When I'm feeling down
(Forget about my troubles) Then you come around
(I forget about my troubles) I gotta see you smile
(Forget about my troubles) When you stay a while
(I forget about my troubles) I just take your hand
(Forget about my troubles) You know I understand
(I forget about my troubles) Everything is fine

Lay It Down Lyrics

Artist : BENET, ERIC
Album : The One
I can tell you're feeling uninspired
I can see you lost most of your fire
I don't see the will or the desire
And I can't hold a hand that won't reach for me

I don't your struggles or your reasons
And I don't the names of all your demons
I'm just a friend who knows what you've been needing
So one to share your burden helps set you free

So come and lay it down
Oh you can lay it all on me
Come lay it down
Oh I'll help to find and ease
Just lay it down
Oh you can lay it all on me
Come lay it down

Baby everybody's trying to climb their mountain
Don't nobody know a way to go around it
If there's a road that's trouble-free, no one has found it
So don't ever feel like no one knows your suffering

Everybody has a load that they must carry
To go it alone is so unnecessary
Don't let your pride deny this love ain't good for sharing
'Cause I'm here for you and any healing that may bring

So come and lay it down
Come lay it, you can lay it all on me
Come lay it down
Come lay it, I'll help to find and ease
Just lay it down
Come lay it, you can lay it all on me
Come lay it down

Someday when this pain is over
The light at the end I see
Oh one day you will need a shoulder
Come lay all your burdens on me
Just lay it down, just lay it down

So come and lay it down
Come lay it, you can lay it all on me
Just lay it down
Come lay it, I'll help to find and ease
Just lay it down
Come lay it, you can lay it all on me
Come lay it down
Lay your burdens all on me

Come lay it, you can lay it all on me
Just lay it down
Come lay it, I'll help to find and ease
Come lay it down
Come lay it, you can lay it all on me
Come lay it down
It's gonna be alright
We gonna work it out, yeah

Here In My Arms (Lucia's Lullaby) Lyrics

Artist : BENET, ERIC
Album : The One
Gently this world spins beneath mother's son
So sweetly she sets out of sight
Hush now my darling for our day is done
One kiss and I'll tell you goodnight

The moon up above, such a marvel to see
The stars cover heavenly skies
But none could compare as you drift off to sleep
To the glow from the light of your smile

Heaven and earth full of wonders to see
The greatest of all is right here with me
Of all of the loves I have known near and far
The best is right here in my arms

Whispers of night are the angels at play
Watching over the treasure of you
You took your first breath and you took mine away
Now the light of my life found in you

Heaven and earth have such wonders to see
The greatest of all is right here with me

There was a dream, I once wished on a star
But now you're right here in my arms
And now you're right here in my arms
Yes now you're right here in my arms

Come Home To Me Lyrics

Artist : BENET, ERIC
Album : The One
[Eric Benét:]
Girl I'm trying hard just to understand
Where did I go wrong & I been I'm a good man
You could say your wish & I make it come true
It's not a damn thing i wouldn't do for you
I think you how much this is killing me
But i love you enough to set you free
Go ahead baby. Find yourself
But just do my heart a favour girl. Don't Find nobody else.

When you walk the world the whole way around
And the best you had you already found
And your heart had enough of breaking down
And darling you'll know where I'll be
Come home to me [x2]

[Jewel Anguay:]
I'm not saying your not the one for me
It's just something inside I've been questioning
Cos every woman has to go and find her own path
And if our love was true like we always knew then I'll be coming back

When I walked the world the whole way around
And the best I've had I've already found
When the heart has had enough of breaking down

[Eric Benét:]
And darling you'll know where I'll be
Come home to me [x2]

Now while your on your way think of how this all began
Before lovers we were friends
That's no ordinary thing

I'm gonna put my trust in love
So love put your trust in you

When I walked the world the whole way around
And the best I've had I've already found
When the heart has had enough of breaking down

[Eric Benét:]
My darling you'll know where I'll be

[Jewel Anguay:]
When I walked the world the whole way around

[Eric Benét:]
And the very best you've had you've already found

[Jewel Anguay:]
When the heart has had enough of breaking down

[Eric Benét:]
My darling you'll know where I'll be
Come home to me

[Jewel Anguay:]
I'm coming home

[Eric Benét:]
Come home to me

[Jewel Anguay:]
I'm com in on home

Cold War Lyrics

Artist : BLAQK AUDIO
Album : Bright Black Heaven
Did we have an understanding?
Maybe I don't understand.
All I know is that I feel so, I feel so...

Had I known I'd kept it all from you, oh
Had I only known you'd want him too.

Did we have an understanding?
Maybe I don't understand.
I foresaw no part of this, oh
I am screaming in between collapsing
Crumbling as I try to stand.
In my pretty fantasy I'm
Running at you with a gun in my hand.

Let the jury see, let the hammer fall,
That your pitiful pleas mean nothing at all,
Nothing at all.

How dare you?
I cannot believe what I heard.
(It's absurd.)
He's prettier than you.
How dare you?
What's worse is that I saw him first.
(Am I cursed?)
I'll never forgive you.

How dare you?
I cannot believe what I heard.
(It's absurd.)
He's prettier than you.
How dare you?
What's worse is that I saw him first.
(Am I cursed?)
I'll never forgive you.
I'll never forgive you.
I'll never forgive you.
I'll never forgive you.

What's worse is that I saw him first.

Faith Healer Lyrics

Artist : BLAQK AUDIO
Album : Bright Black Heaven
You’re stumbling like the Nazarene
You've cast your gaze to high
The rapture you seek is found below and it’s been denied.

You're stunning, just like a Philistine
You’re wasting precious time
Shake off that chill of Heaven and come rest your weary eyes
You’ve been wandering, searching for Him forever
Just take some respite here, and if He shows,
We’ll talk to Him together

Oh-oh-oh, don’t you know oh oh?
If you come down, down, down
I know a little sin to which we can aspire
Oh-oh-oh, don’t you know oh oh?
When you come down, down, down
Just crawl back in your skin and it will take you higher, higher, higher

You’re a vision, if you could see yourself through my enlightened eyes
You’d pull yourself from fantasy and wrap yourself in life
You’ve been suffering, bound to Him forever
We’ll have your release here, and when we go, we’ll take His name

Oh-oh-oh, don’t you know oh oh?
If you come down, down, down
I know a little sin to which we can aspire
Oh-oh-oh, don’t you know oh oh?
When you come down, down, down
Just crawl back in your skin and it will take you higher,

Does he ever speak to you like I do?
Does he ever speak to you?
Does he ever speak to you like I do?
Does he ever speak to you?
Does he ever feel the way that I feel?
How does he feel?

Oh-oh-oh, don’t you know oh oh?
If you come down, down, down
I know a little sin to which we can aspire
Oh-oh-oh, don’t you know oh oh?
When you come down, down, down
Just crawl back in your skin and it will take you higher

Oh-oh-oh, don’t you know oh oh?
If you come down, down, down
I know a little secret which we can aspire
Oh-oh-oh, don’t you know oh oh?
When you come down, down, down
Just crawl back in your skin and it will take you!

Ill-Lit Ships Lyrics

Artist : BLAQK AUDIO
Album : Bright Black Heaven
They’re coming out to find you,
And they don’t even know your name.
No matter what they tell you,
You never will be clean again.

So lie to us and just say
That there’s never emotion
In all that you give away.

They’re coming out to find you
And they won’t even ask your name.
But they will recognize you,
Girls like you are all the same.

So you say, this room is just for one night,
But they never will let you go.
Just let them come inside
And this never will let you go.
No, it never will let you go,
As you smile it hurts me so.
That this never will let you go.

Just what was looking for you?
Do you like what they have found?
Two nights are now behind you,
And you can even live one down.

So smile at me and just say
That it’s worth every breakdown.
Those strange do not know when you wake,
We’ll awake beside you.
I’ll be the last to know your name.
I’ll be the last to want to
Be seen with you in light of day.

Didn’t you say this room is just for one night?
But they never will let you go.
Just let them come inside
And this never will let you go.
No, it never will let you go,
As you smile it hurts me so.
That this never will let you go.
As you smile it hurts me.
Oh, your smile, it hurts me.
Oh, your smile, it hurts me.
'Cause I still clearly can see who you are.

How could you let them buy you? [x3]
Why did you let them?

This room is just for one night?
But they never will let you go.
Just let them come inside
And you never forget this.

This room is just for one night?
But they never will let you go.
Just close those hopeful eyes
And this never will let you go.
No, it never will let you go
As you smile it hurts me so.
That this never will let you go.
No, it never will let you go.
