Honky Tonky Mama Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : If I Could Only Fly

If you go down to the bottom
Better watch the way you act
If you fool around them honkies
You will never make it back.

When you get in trouble
The best you can do is lose
For them honky tonky moma's
They'll give you the honky blues.

I went down to the bottom
Just a week ago today
Met a honky tonky baby
And I couldn't get away.

Lost all my money
And brand new padded shoes
For them honky tonky moma's
They had them honky blues.

I drank a half of pint a liquor
And a half a pint of gin
Saw my honky tonky mama
Foolin' around some other men.

Really felt mistreated
My baby I was about to lose
Got jealous of my baby
I had them old honky tonky blues, sure did.

She's a honky tonky mama
Got her honky tonky way's
She got me in trouble
Now I'm servin day's.

Big policmen got me
Would not turn me lose
Took me down to the station
Locked me in the county blues, good mornin' judge.

When I go back to the bottom
Gonna watch my p's and q's
Or them honky tonky mama's
Will be givin' me the blues.

Gonna have protection
I think I have paid my dues
I'll find me a honky tonky moma
And give her back these old honky tonky blues.

I'll find me a honky tonky moma
And give her these old honky tonky blues.

I'll find me a honky tonky moma
And give her these old honky tonky blues...

Turn To Me Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : If I Could Only Fly

When the whole world turns against you
And life won't let you be
When you need someone to turn to
Turn to me.

When questions go unanxswered
And you wonder what will be
When you need someone to turn to
Turn to me.

I stand on every corner
I'm just around the bend
I've always been here for you
I've always been your friend.

When walls close in around you
I'm the one who sets you free
When you need someone to turn to
Turn to me.

I stand on every corner
I'm just around the bend
I've always been here for you
I've always been your friend.

When walls close in around you
I'm the one who sets you free
When you need someone to turn to
Turn to me, turn to me...

If I Could Only Fly Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : If I Could Only Fly

I almost felt you touching me just now
I wish I knew which way to turn and go
I feel so good and then, then I feel so bad
I wonder what I ought to do

If I could only fly, if I could only fly
I'd bid this place goodbye to come and be with you
But I can hardly stand and I got no where to run
Another sinking sun and one more lonely night

The wind keeps blowing, somewhere, everyday
Tell me things get better, somewhere, up the way
Just dismal thinking on a dismal day
And sad songs for us to bare

If I could only fly
If we could only fly
If we could only fly
There'd be no more lonely nights

You know, sometimes, I write happy songs
Then some little thing goes wrong
I wish they all could make you smile

Coming home soon and I wanna stay
Maybe we can, somehow, get away
I wish you could come with me when I go again

If I could only fly, if I could only fly
I'd bid this place goodbye to come and be with you
But I can hardly stand and I got no where to run
Another sinking sun and one more lonely night

Crazy Moon Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : If I Could Only Fly

Crazy moon, you shine just like there's nothing wrong
Crazy moon, don't you know my baby's gone?
I told her she could leave or change her tune
Crazy me
Crazy moon

Crazy moon, don't you know that she's not here?
Crazy moon, can't you see that I still care?
And I'm going to need to hold her pretty soon
Crazy me
Crazy moon

Crazy moon, your silver light can't find the ground
Cause you're in the sky before the sun goes down
And we waste another lonely afternoon
Crazy me
Crazy moon

(Think About A) Lullaby Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : If I Could Only Fly

Think about a lullaby
Baby, close your eyes
Don't cry
Think about a lullaby

Let me sing you off to sleep
Let Daddy pray your soul to keep
It's safe here with your Mom and I
Think about a lullaby

Think about a butterfly
Think about a lullaby
Think about a cloud in the sky
You can count your little sheep
But babe, you've got to go to sleep
But baby, please don't you cry

I'm Still Your Daddy Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : If I Could Only Fly

I knew someday you'd find out about San Quentin
And your heart would break
And your faith would go away
But it's time you knew the truth about your papa
I've not always been the man I am today

It's true I've done some time in prison
Let me be the first to tell you I was wrong
That was back when I was wild
Back when I was just a child
Back before your mama came along

So don't put me down
Don't push me away
I'm still your daddy baby, baby anyway
Don't put me down
Don't push me away
Daddy needs some family love today

So don't put me down
Don't push me away
I'm still your daddy baby, baby anyway
Don't put me down
Don't push me away
Daddy needs some family love today

So don't put me down
Don't push me away
I'm still your daddy baby, baby anyway
Don't put me down
Don't push me away
Daddy needs some family love today

Proud To Be Your Old Man Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : If I Could Only Fly

I might be over the hill
But you make growing old quite a thrill
So promenade and take me by the hand
You make me proud to be your old man

There's a lot of young men who covet your love
And you place me beyond and above
It's amazing how you understand
'Cos you make me proud to be your old man

You love me in spite of my age
You're always right there by the stage
And you say, "Beauty is found in the soul"
You make it fun to get old
And babe, when you hold like nobody can
You make me proud to be your old man

Hey, when you hold and kiss me like nobody can
You make me proud to be your old man

Always late with your kisses
Won't you come to my arms
Sweet darling and stay
Always late with your kisses
Why, oh why, do you want to do me this way?

How long do you think that I can wait
When you know you're always late
Always late with your kisses
Why oh why do you want to do me this way?

How long do you think that I can wait
When you know you're always late
Always late with your kisses
Why, oh why, do you want to do me this way?

Why, why, why do you want to do me this way?...

More Than My Old Guitar Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

More than my old guitar
More than my old guitar
I love my old guitar like God loves the poor
But I love you e-ven more

You know there's love in our family
And not a lot of hate to ignore
And love is for music and guitar for loving
But I love you e-ven more

More than my old guitar
More than my old guitar
I love my old guitar like God loves the poor
But I love you e-ven more

There'll be no need for saving
If you knew what the Lord had in store
What waits for after the mind can't imagine
But I love you e-ven more

More than my old guitar
More than my old guitar
I love my old guitar like God loves the poor
But I love you e-ven more

If you've got the money, I've got the time
We'll go honky tonkin' and we'll have a time
We'll make all the night spots, dance, drink beer and wine
If you've got the money, honey, I've got the time.

There ain't no use to tarry so let's start out tonight
We'll spread joy, oh boy, oh boy, and we'll spread it right
We'll have more fun, baby, all the way down the line
If you've got the money, honey, I've got the time.

If you've got the money, I've got the time
We'll go honky tonkin' and we'll have a time
Bring along you cadillac, leave my old wreck behind
If you've got the money, honey, I've got the time.

Yes, we'll go honky tonkin' make every club in town
We'll go to the park when it's dark, we won't fool around
But if you run short of money, well, I'll run short of time
'Cause you with no more money, honey, I've no more time.

If you've got the money, I've got the time
We'll go honky tonkin' and we'll have a time
Bring along you cadillac, leave my old wreck behind
If you've got the money, honey, I've got the time...

Look What Thoughts Will Do Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

Once I thought I loved just you
And I thought you loved me too
But just look what thoughts will do
For today you say we're through.

Now another wears the crown
And you think that you have found
Just what makes your world go round
Watch those thoughts they'll get you down.

If within your future years
Your new love should bring you tears
Then you'll think of me I'm sure
But those thoughts won't help you, dear.

Thought I'd build a home for two
Just a home for me and you
Thought we'd have some kiddies too
But just look what thoughts will do.

Now I know just how you feel
That your love was never real
Guess to you I don't appeal
So we'll just forget the deal.

So goodbye and here's to you
And I'm happy through and through
Yes, you thought that I'd be blue
But just look what thoughts will do...

My Baby's Just Like Money Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

Well, my baby's just like money
True while you hold her tight
But if you let her go, she'll blow like dough
Honky-tonk day and night

'Cos a friend of mine, he came and wised me up
This is what he said
"Money goes from hand to hand
And your baby goes to man to man"

Listen now, baby
And I don't mean maybe
Honey, I'm telling you
You're making me blue
That's why I know it's true

'Cos I found out, honey
You're just like money
Root of all evil
Money goes from hand to hand
And you know you go from man to man

Yeah, my baby's just like money
She goes everywhere
And I'm telling you her love's untrue
And I know that she don't care

Just as long as she's got a ticket to ride
That gal's satisfied
Money goes from hand to hand
And my baby goes to man to man

Listen here, baby
And I don't mean maybe
You got to change your ways starting today
Or your daddy's not gonna stay

'Cos I found out, honey
You're just like money
Root of all evil
Money goes from hand to hand
You know you go from man to man

When you were sad and lonely and have no place to go
Call me up, sweet baby and bring along some dough
And we'll go honky tonkin'. honey baby
We'll go honky tonkin', honey baby
We'll go honky tonkin' 'round the town.

When you and your baby have a fallin' out
Call me up sweet mama and we'll go steppin' out
We'll go honky tonkin', honky tonkin'
We'll go honky tonkin', honey baby
We'll go honky tonkin' 'round the town.

When you go to the city, to the city fair
If you come to the city then you will find me there
And we'll go honky tonkin', honky tonkin'
We'll go honky tonkin', honey baby
We'll go honky tonkin' 'round this town...

When you are sad and lonely and have no place to go
Call me up sweet baby and bring along some dough
We'll go honky tonkin', honky tonkin'
We'll go honky tonkin', honey baby
We'll go honky tonkin' 'round the town...

Runaway Mama Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

She's my run away mama
Always chasing other men
She's my run away mama
She's somewhere and gone again.

If you see this kind of lady,
Kind of tall, kind of slim.
She's my runaway mama.
Call the law and turn her in

She's got lots of pretty things
That a man cannot ignore.
And she's standing out in a bar room
When she walks out on the floor.

If you see this kind of woman
Thumbling a ride and showing skin.
She's my runaway mama.
Call the law and turn her in.

If you see a woman flirting
And she's hurting a bunch of men.
She's my runaway mama.
Call the law and turn her in.

If you see her somewhere dancing
On a table in a bar.
Go and call the chief of police
And try to tell 'em where you are.

She's my runaway mama,
Always chasing other men
She's my runaway mama,
She's somewhere and gone again.

If you see this kind of lady
Thumbing a ride and showing skin.
She's my runaway mama.
Call the law and turn her in.

She's my runaway mama.

I'll Sign My Heart Away Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

I'll sign my heart away in court tomorrow,
When I sign the papers that will set you free.
But to part this way is to my sorrow,
My heart will brake to see them take your love away.

I'll tell my friends I'm glad it's all over,
But when I do I'll wipe the tears away.
You'll smile and take the hand of your new lover,
After tomorrow when I sign my heart away.

I'll take the blame give back the name you wanted,
He's done you wrong I'll hear the law say.
But they'll never know how I'll be haunted,
After tomorrow when I sign my heart away.

The Wild Side Of Life Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

You wouldn't read my letters if I wrote them
You ask me not to call you on the phone
But there's something I'm wanting to tell you
So I wrote it in the words of this song.

I didn't know God made honky tonk angels
I might have known you'd never make a wife
You gave up the only one who ever loved you
And went on back to the wild side of life.

The glamour of the gay nightlife has lured you
To the places where the wine and liquor flow
Where you waited to be somebody's baby
And forget the truest love you'll ever know.

I didn't know God made honky tonk angels
I might have known you'd never make a wife
You gave up the only one who ever loved you
Then went on back to the wild side of life...

Take These Chains From My Heart Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

Take these chains from my heart and set me free
You've grown cold and no longer care for me
All my faith in you hass gone but the heartaches linger on
Take these chains from my heart and set me free.

Take these tears from my eyes so I can see
Just a spark of the love that used to be
If you love somebody new let me find somebody too
Take these chains from my heart and set me free.

Give my heart just a word of sympathy
Be as fair to my heart as you can be
Then if you no longer care for the love that's beating there
Take these chains from my heart and set me free.

Take these chains from my heart and set me free
You've grown cold and no longer care for me
All my faith in you is gone but the heartaches linger on
Take these chains from my heart and set me free...

I Want To Be With You Always Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

I lose my blues, honey
When I'm with you
No one else can do
You're in my heart to stay.

But when I'm gone
And I'm all alone
I'll be singing a song
I want to be with you always.

I'd be happy, dear
If you could only be here
And always be near
Forever and a day.

Then we could travel far
To some big shining star
Just me and my guitar
And stay like sweethearts for always.

I hope you feel the same
You really want my name
You'll be the one who's to blame
If it works out wrong that day.

'Cause my love is true
My love is only for you
I'll never be blue
If I can be with you, always...

As Time Goes By Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Unforgettable

You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.

And when two lovers woo
They still say: "I love you."
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by.

Moonlight and love songs, never out of date
Hearts full of passion, jealousy and hate
Woman needs man and man must have his mate
That no one can deny.

It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

Moonlight and love songs, never out of date
Hearts full of passion, jealousy and hate
Woman needs man and man must have his mate
That no one can deny.

It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by...

Gypsy Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Unforgettable

In a quaint caravan
There's a lady they call the gypsy
She can look in the future
And dry away all your tears.

Everything will come right
If you'll only believe the gypsy
You could tell at a glance
That my heart was so full of fears.

She looked at my hand and told me
That my lover was always true
But deep in my heart I knew, dear
Somebody else was kissing you.

But I'll go there again
'Cause I want to believe the gypsy
That my lover is true
And will come back to me someday.

She looked at my hand and told me
That my lover was always true
But deep in my heart I knew, dear
Somebody else was kissing you

But I'll go there again
'Cause I want to believe the gypsy
That my lover is true
And will come back to me someday.

That my lover is true
And will come back to me someday...

Unforgettable that's what you are
Unforgettable though near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me
Never before has someone meanrt more.

Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that's how you'll stay
That's why, darling, it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too.

Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that's how you'll stay

Stardust Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Unforgettable

Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely night dreaming of a song
The melody haunts my reverie
I am once again with you.

When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
Oh, but that was long ago
And now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song.

Beside a garden wall
When stars are bright
And you are in my arms
The nightingale sings it's fairy tale
Of paradise where roses bloom.

Though I dream in vain
In my heart it always will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain.

Beside a garden wall
When stars are bright
And you are in my arms
The nightingale sings it's fairy tale
Of paradise where roses bloom.

Though I dream in vain
In my heart it always will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain...

I Can't Get Started Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Unforgettable

I've flown around the world in a plane
I've settled revolutions in Spain
The North Pole I have charted
But can't get started with you

Around the golf course I'm under par
And all the movies want me to star
I've got a house, a show place
But I get no place with you

You're so supreme, lyrics I write of you
Scheme, just for a sight of you
Dream, both day and night of you
And what good does it do?

In 1929 I sold short
In England I'm presented at court
But you've got me downhearted
'Cause I can't get started with you

You're so supreme, lyrics I write of you
Scheme, just for a sight of you
Dream, both day and night of you
And what good does it do?

In 1929 I sold short
In England I'm presented at court
But you've got me downhearted
'Cause I can't get started with you

Pennies From Heaven Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Unforgettable

Every time it rains, it rains
Pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven.

You'll find your fortunes falling
All over town
Make sure that your umbrella
Is upside down.

Trade them for a package of
Sunshine and flowers
If you want the things you love
You must have showers.

So when you hear it thunder
Don't run under a tree
There'll be pennies from heaven
For you and me.

Every time it rains, it rains
Pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven.

You'll find your fortunes falling
All over town
Make sure that your umbrella
Is upside down.

Trade them for a package of
Sunshine and flowers
If you want the things you love
You must have showers.

So when you hear it thunder
Don't run under a tree
There'll be pennies from heaven
For you and me.

Cry Me A River Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Unforgettable

Now you say you're lonely
You cried the whole night through
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you.

Now you say goodbye
For being so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you.

You drove me, nearly drove me out of my head
Why you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember all that she said
Said that love was to plebian
Said you were through with me.

An' now you say you love me
And just to prove you do
Come on and cry me a river, cry me a river
I've cried a river over you.

You drove me, nearly drove me out of my head
Why you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember all that she said
Said that love was to plebian
Said you were through with me.

An' now you say you love me
And just to prove you do
Come on and cry me a river, cry me a river
I've cried a river over you.

But gold won't bring you happiness
When you're growin' old.

The world is still the same, you'll never change it
Just as long as the stars shine above
Well, you're nobody 'til somebody loves you
So find yourself somebody to love.

What Love Can Do Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Unforgettable

What love can do
Is build a bridge for two
And make our dreams come true
That's what love can do.

What love can do
Is make his need to live
And make you want to give
Thats's what love can do

And when your whole world
Goes spinnin' out of control and you're alone
And you're needin' someone to hold
An old friend from somewhere touches your soul
And love comes true.

What love can do
Is a way to make you smile
And make your life worth while
That's what love can do

And when your whole world
Goes spinnin' out of control and you're alone
And you're needin' someone to hold
An old friend somewhere touches your soul
And love comes true.

What love can do
This make you want to smile
Can change the world around
That's what love can do

Goin' Away Party Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Unforgettable

I'm throwin' a goin' away party
A party for a friend of mine
So put me somewhere off in a corner
With a glass and bottle of your party wine.

Don't worry it won't be a loud party
I feel too low to get too high
It's just a sad goin' away party
For a dream I'm telling goodbye.

I'm throwin' a goin' away party
A party for a dream of mine
Nobody's coming but a heartache
And some tears will drop in now most anytime.

Don't worry it won't be a loud party
Dreams don't make noise when they die
And so since it's a goin' away party
Go away and let me cry.

Hey, it's just a sad goin' away party
For a dream I'm telling goodbye, goodbye...

Where's All The Freedom Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Chicago Wind

Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?
Is it still our creed from shore to shore?
Every soldier fights, should we read him his new rights?
There's not that many to read any more
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

Where's all the freedom that we fought to save?
Is it gone for good with yesterday?
Hey, it ain't no fun around and it's the same in every town
Ain't sure of the ten commandments anymore
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

My grandson done gone to battle
And I'm somewhere below Seattle
Can't afford to take my car to the grocery store
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

My grandson done gone to battle
And I'm somewhere below Seattle
Countin' the cars with police across the door
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

Where's all the freedom that we're prayin' for?
Are we a nation under God any more?
How long do we cower down, is this really still our ground?
Our country's like a prisoner of war
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

The old man paid no mind to color
'Cause he knew that I'd been down and out
Old Joe said that I was a soul brother
The things I been singin' about.

He liked like I played my old guitar
He sat by beside me the same
Together we hung out an old timy blues
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm.

Oh, we sing aside a railroad track
For people have nothing to lose
I'm a son of a gambler who's luck never came
And a white man singin' the blues.

We both done a heap of hard livin'
And hard to discribing the song
But the blues was one thing we both understood
And the old man hummed right along.

Oh, we sing aside a railroad track
For people have nothing to lose
I'm a son of a gambler who's luck never came
And a white man singin' the blues...

Leavin's Not The Only Way To Go Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Chicago Wind

Do the mornin's still come early, are the nights not long enough?
Does a tear of hesitation fall on everything you touch?
Well, it all might be a lesson for the hasty heart to know
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

Maybe lyin' at your feelin's, grow accustomed to the dark
By mornin's light, it just might solve the problems of the heart
And it all might be a lesson for the hasty heart to know
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

People reach new understandings all the time
Take a second look, maybe change their minds
People reach new understandings every day
Tell me not to reach, babe, and I'll go away

But do the mornin's still come early, are the nights not long enough?
Does a tear of hesitation fall on everything you touch?
Well, it all might be a lesson for the hasty heart to know
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

People reach new understandings all the time
Take a second look, maybe change their minds
People reach new understandings every day
Tell me not to reach, babe, and I'll go away

But do the mornin's still come early, are the nights not long enough?
Does a tear of hesitation fall on everything you touch?
Well, it all might be a lesson for the hasty heart to know
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

Honky Tonk Man Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Chicago Wind

I never seen you look quite so sad
An' I never felt me feel quite so bad
An' I know we both feel that we've been had
I guess that we're just not that strong

'Cause I lost my woman and you've lost your man
Who knows who's right or who's wrong?
But I still got my guitar and I've got a plan
Throw your arms 'round this honky tonk man

Throw your arms 'round this honky tonk man
An' we'll get through the night the best way we can
It's the best old pain killer since hurtin' began
Throw your arms 'round this honky tonk man

I miss my woman an' you miss your man too
But there's not a helluva lot that we can do
But cling to each other till the hurtin's through
An' the hurt can only last just so long

You be my woman an' I'll be your man
Even if just for a while
I still got my guitar and I've got a plan
Throw your arms 'round this honky tonk man

Throw your arms 'round this honky tonk man
An' we'll get through the night the best way we can
It's the best old pain killer since hurtin' began
Throw your arms 'round this honky tonk man
Throw your arms 'round this honky tonk man

America First Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Chicago Wind

Why don't we liberate these United States,
We're the ones that need it worst.
Let the rest of the world help us for a change,
And let's rebuild America first.

Our highways an' bridges are fallin' apart:
Who's blessed an' who has been cursed?
There's things to be done all over the world,
But let's rebuild America first.

Who's on the Hill and who's watchin' the valley?
An' who's in charge of it all?
God bless the army an' God bless our liberty,
And dadgum the rest of it all.

Yeah, men in position are backin' away:
Freedom is stuck in reverse.
Let's get out of Iraq an' get back on the track,
And let's rebuild America first.

Why don't we liberate these United States,
We're the ones who need it the most.
You think I'm blowin smoke? Boys it ain't no joke.
I make twenty trips a year from coast to coast.

It Always Will Be Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Chicago Wind

Sometimes I think that love is somewhere
Living on an island all alone
I can see it in the darkness, I can feel it in the distance
Then it's gone

An' then I know it's time
That I go an' find my favorite girl
An' when I look into her eyes
I see all the love there is in all the world

An' it always will be
It always will be
It always will be
It always will be

There are some things I think about
An' every time I do, it breaks my heart
'Cause there's nothin' I can do
About the loneliness I feel when we're apart

An' I stop, claw the darkness
An' in the distance your face I see
An' when I look into your eyes
I see all the love there is inside of me

An' it always will be
It always will be
It always will be
It always will be

Then I know it's time
That I go an' find my favorite girl
When I look into her eyes
I see all the love there is in all the world

An' it always will be
It always will be
It always will be
It always will be

I Still Can't Say Goodbye Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Chicago Wind

When I was young
My dad would say
"C'mon son, let's go out an' play"
Seems like only yesterday

When I was all by myself
I'd climb up the closet shelf
Find his hat an' fix the brim
Pretending I was him

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

He took good care
Of Mom an' me
We all cut down the Christmas tree
He always had some time for me

Wind blows through the trees
Street-lights, they still shine bright
Most things are the same
But I miss my dad tonight

I walk by the Salvation Army store
Saw a hat like my daddy wore
Tried it on an' fixed the brim
Still tryin' to be like him

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye, Pa

Some Of Us Fly Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Chicago Wind

We all come along, in our own given time
No way to compare, such unique design
But there's one common trait,
To the scheme of it all
Some of us fly....all of us fall

When life deals you a hand you don't throw it away
The cards that you draw are the cards that you play
Some don't give a damn,
Some give it there all
Some of us fly....but all of us fall

Some spiral down in a circle
Some climb to steeply and stall
Some make the bet some ponder it yet
Some pass, some raise, some call
Some play it smart
I had a ball
Some of us fly.... but all of us fall

Some squander life, some turn it around
Some look to the sky, but they cant leave the ground
Some reach for the stars
When there already tall
Some of us fly....but all of us fall

I've Seen It Go Away Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : I Am What I Am

I seen 'em when they stepped down on the moon
I seen 'em sail around the world in a hot balloon
I've seen many a great tomorrow turn to yesterday
I've seen 'em, boys, and I've seen it go away

I've seen my share of good times come and go
I seen Bob Wills and Elvis when they did a show
When you've seen the very best, the rest can't hardly play
I've seen it, girls, and I've seen it go away

I've seen it in it's pride and all it's glory
I've seen it through the bars on a dark and stormy day
I've seen it from on high, through the tears I had to cry
The sad part is, I've seen it go away

I watched it all completely fall apart
And I seen our greatest leader break the people's heart
I've seen most of what we got have a whole lot better day
I've seen it, kids, and I've seen it go away

I've seen it in it's pride and all it's glory
I've seen it through the bars on a dark and stormy day
I've seen it from on high, through the tears I had to cry
The sad part is, I've seen it go away

Pretty When It's New Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : I Am What I Am

Love's always lovely when first two lovers meet
Hand in hand, arm in arm, walking down the street
Always seen together in everything they do
Love is always pretty when it's new

Love is always special
Especially to the heart
When it's love on sight and all is right
And there's no doubt from the start

'Fore it starts to crumble
There'll be many shades of blue
Ah but, love is always pretty when it's new

Love is always pretty when it's new
It has nothing bad about it
'Til your lover says, we're through

And old love's even sweeter
That old saying is really true
Love is always pretty when it's new

Altogether
Love is always pretty when it's new
Ah, there is nothing bad about it
'Til your lover says, we're through

And old love's even sweeter
That old saying is really true
Ah but, love is always pretty when it's new

Oil Tanker Train Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : I Am What I Am

The oil tanker train from down on the river
In Southern Pacific and Santa Fe names
Would rumble and rattle the old boxcar we lived in
And I was a kid then and I loved that old train

Loaded with crude oil, headed for town
The boxcar would tremble from the top to the ground
And my mother could feel it even before it came
"Get up son to the window, here comes the oil train"

[Chorus:]
From my checkered past I can always bring back
The memories we felt in that home by the track
And all these years later it's still stuck in my brain
Oh I loved that old oil tanker train

Dad worked for the railroad when I was a kid
And my fondest memories were things that he did
And early one Christmas, after Santa Claus came
There 'neath the tree ran a toy tanker train

[Chorus]

Live And Love Always Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : I Am What I Am

I wanna live and love under the stars above
I wanna hold you close to my heart
You gave me hopes anew when I was sad and blue
Nothin's gonna tear us apart

I sang a lonely song until you came along
I'm headed for that bright sunny day
Honey I'm tellin' you what love can do
I'm gonna live and love always

Yeah I wanna shout hooray, praise that lucky day
When you came walking into my life
I got a change in plans 'cause I'm a different man
I'm thru with all that trouble and strife

I used to be so sad now I feel so glad
I'm headed for that bright sunny day
Honey I'm tellin' you what love can do
I'm gonna live and love always

Yeah, I used to feel so bad now I feel so glad
I'm headed for that bright sunny day
Honey I'm tellin' you what love can do
I'm gonna live and love always

How Did You Find Me Here Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : I Am What I Am

How did You find me, how did You know
I'd be here in this hole in the ground
I can't even see out, over the edge
Lookin' up from all the way down

I thought I had been left here to die
When I saw your face appear
What a surprise
How did You find me here

I thought I could do it, all of it
All by myself

I thought I could win every round
Then I hit rock bottom, the blues, I got 'em
And You lifted me out of my fear
And how did You find me?

Play it, my man, play it

I thought I could do it, all of it
All by myself

I thought I could win every round
Then I hit rock bottom and the blues, I got 'em
You lifted me out of my fear
But how did You find me?

Then I hit rock bottom and the blues, I got 'em
And You lifted me out of the fear
But how did You find me?

Thank you, Lord

Bad Actor Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : I Am What I Am

I've never been much at making believe*
Don't have any tricks hidden up my sleeve.
If life is a comedy, where's all the laughter?
'Cause here on the stage I'm a bad actor.

I don't know what you want me to know.
So I'll take the small parts in our family show.
Tell me which hero you want me to play.
How should I feel, and what do I say?

Pretending to care, pretending to cry.
You say I'll be there, and I say I'll try.
Second hand feelings are always a factor,
In my staring roll as a bad actor.

Please let me know what you want me to see.
Where do you want me to be?
In this old mirror, I'm just a reflection,
But I might be brilliant if you'd give direction.

I have a problem of knowing what's real.
All my emotions I borrow and steal.
Faking my way through every day,
And trying to act like it's better that way

Pretending to care, pretending to cry.
You say I'll be there, and I say I'll try.
Second hand feelings are always a factor,
In my staring roll as a bad actor.

Down At The End Of The Road Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : I Am What I Am

I was looking for a place to hang my hat
And a place to lay me down my heavy load
I found it in the woods, in the cabin on the hill
Down at the end of the road

We were looking for a place to raise a child
'Cause she'd soon be giving birth, the one that showed
And we found it in the woods, in the cabin on the hill
Down at the end of the road

Down at the end of the road
Down at the end of an old country road
We found what we needed for the family we would raise
Down at the end of the road

A girl was born, December 23rd
Just one day short of Christmas Eve
And through the years we tried to move many different times
But we landed on the place we couldn't leave

So we prayed to God that we might have a son
And he was born December '92
And we keep lookin' for a place to move away, move away
But leavin' was a thing we couldn't do

20 years flew by like 20 days
And the blessings grew from the initial seed we'd sown
Our kids will soon be leavin' now
They'll leave us here behind
Down at the end of the road

Down at the end of the road
Down at the end of an old country road
We found what we needed for the family we would raise
Down at the end of the road

Stranger In The City Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : I Am What I Am

I can't be with you this evening
I can't be with you tonight
Somehow you must have read me wrong
I need you to read me right

I'm a stranger in the city
A gypsy passing through
My heart's at home with someone else
I'd be killing time with you

I'm a stranger in the city
And you tried to lead me wrong
I'm in town to do a show tonight
This day, to sing my song

We can never get together
That leaves nothin' left to do
I'm a stranger in the city
Not the man for you

Now I'm not ashamed to feel this way
'Cause I'm a man who has a lot
The kind of love that I have at home, baby
Can't be sold or lost

You've got all it takes to run my life
I've risen to fame 'cause you do
I'm a stranger in the city
Not the man for you
I'm a stranger in the city
Not the man for you

I Am What I Am Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : I Am What I Am

I'm no longer a fugitive
And I'm not on the land
And I'm just around
I am what I am

I do what I do
'Cause I do give a damn
And I'm not a tramp and I'm not a drifter
I am what I am

I won't be a slave
And I won't be a prisoner
I'm just a nephew
To today's Uncle Sam

I believe Jesus is God
And the pig is just ham
And I'm just a seeker, I'm just a sinner
And I'll be what I am

I won't be a slave
And I won't be a prisoner
And I'm just a nephew
To today's Uncle Sam

I believe Jesus is God
And a pig is just ham
And I'm just a seeker, I'm just a sinner
I am what I am

Gnars Attacks! Lyrics

Artist : I SEE STARS
Album : Digital Renegade

Burn every bridge you ever build.
How do you live with yourself?

You look down on me
Now we’re rising up
You will fall to you grave.
You’ll never fuck with me.

I can see the bitterness
in your confident smile.
This choice was yours.
And I can feel that everything,
everything is about to change.

We’ll tear this place to the ground.
Yeah, I know you’re talking of me,
right now, right now.
I won’t let you get you away.
Step up, right now.

Right now

Keep your friends close
and your enemies closer.
We all make our future.
We rage a war on fame on fortune.
I can feel that everything,
everything is about to change

Burn every bridge you ever build.
How do you live with your selfish ways?
Burn every bridge you ever build.
How do you live with yourself?
Fuck.

We all make our future.
We rage a war on fame on fortune.

NZT48 Lyrics

Artist : I SEE STARS
Album : Digital Renegade

We are surrounded by harlots
Not today bishop, not today miss nuclear
I wish this greed never started
But now we're here and it's time to stand up

You can't really believe anything you're hearing, can you
You can't really believe anything you're seeing, can you

The time to move is now
The fire in my gut
I feel it in my heart
On the tip of my tongue
The time to move is now

No, we're not gonna run from truth
It's the world versus one
We're not scared of you
And after all where did the pieces go
We're here to bust this whole thing wide open
We're here for you
Reveal the truth

You can't really believe anything you're hearing, can you
You can't really believe anything you're seeing, can you

We're back with the sense of vengeance
To our leaders that let us down
We're not leaving till we get what we want
Own up to your lies and your disregard
We'll charge the throne, we'll set the tone
We'll leave nothing but skin and bone
We'll start show, reap what we so
We aren't taking this anymore
In God we trust that you'll all be dealt with
You can't escape
You can't escape judgement

Some men just want to watch the world burn
Watch the world burn!

Watch the world burn!
The only verdict is vengeance!
There's no stopping me now from calling you out!
The only verdict is vengeance!

No, we're not gonna run from truth
It's the world versus one
We're not scared of you

No, we're not gonna run from truth
It's the world versus one
We're not scared of you
And after all where did the pieces go
We're here to bust this whole thing wide open
The time to move is now!

Digital Renegade Lyrics

Artist : I SEE STARS
Album : Digital Renegade

I’m seeing clear, I’m leaving fear
for the first time in my life.
I’ll take everything I know
to the streets, to the people.

Trying hard to feel something real.
We’ve had enough, but this is reality.
It’s not enough to keep the feeling alive.

The truth, we want it now,
We want it right now.

We did nothing wrong.
Life’s long enough, they’ll find me.
My home was here all along.
I just needed a dose of reality.

I’m seeing clear, I’m leaving fear
for the first time in my life.
I’ll take everything I know
to the streets, to the people.

Trying hard to feel something real.
We’ve had enough, but this is reality.
It’s not enough to keep the feeling alive.

We did nothing wrong.
Life’s long enough, they’ll find me.

The truth, we want it now,
We want it right now.
This is reality. Yeah.

Endless Sky Lyrics

Artist : I SEE STARS
Album : Digital Renegade
(feat. Danny Worsnop of Asking Alexandria)

I'll take my stand and ask you all to fight,
to come together as one
before they take our rights.
You should have known from the start
that some day they'd try,
and I told you before:
you're all living a lie.

Knowing the truth
is like a different dimension:
there's no going back
once you see the lies.
I don't know about you,
I will rise [x3]

This is our time, rise up.
Stand your ground.
We can conquer the king of the world.

Take the time
to open up your weary eyes
are blind to all things around us.
This is our time, this our time
to set things right.
Get on your feet before it's too late
and tell everyone I know.

Sir can you please spare some change for me
in this world today.
Where people fear the very power
that's given to them.
You should have known from the start
that some day we'd try.
And I tried to tell you before:
you're all living a lie.

Knowing the truth
is like a different dimension:
there's no turning back
once you hear the lies.
I don't know about you,
I will rise [x3]

Take the time
to open up your weary eyes
are blind to all things around us.
This is our time, this our time
to set things right.
Get on your feet before it's too late.
This is our time, this our time
to set things right.

Allow me your undivided attention;
let us bring you to the next dimension.
I am the alpha omega sent to expose your lies.
I am your God now.

We'll bring the end to them all.
We can conquer the king of the world.

Underneath Every Smile Lyrics

Artist : I SEE STARS
Album : Digital Renegade

So sick of screaming my lungs out;
we both lose.
You're never making a damn sound;
can't keep my cool.
And I'm thinking it's my time
to crawl back inside my mind;
am I wasting a second of air?

It's getting hard at the nights grow darker
I realized suffering is far from done;
my dreams have won.
What a waste of my precious time you've been.
I have to give up, I have to give up.

When the cards are down
and the space finally clears,
hopefully you know...
I'd go trough hell and back for you.

So sick of screaming my lungs out;
we both lose.
You're never making a damn sound;
can't keep my cool.
And I'm thinking it's my time
to crawl back inside my mind;
am I wasting a second of air?

Why was it so easy to let me down?
I always thought better of you.
It's coming back around.

You let me relieve my very worst nightmare.
I tried so hard. I tried so hard.
Why was is so easy to let me down?
I tried so hard. I tried so fucking hard.

Speak now or forever be deceived.
I tried so hard. I tried so hard.
Why was it so easy to let me down?
I tried so hard. I tried so fucking hard.
It's coming back around.

Mystery Wall Lyrics

Artist : I SEE STARS
Album : Digital Renegade

Your scream: it...
Your scream: it makes me sick,
and I refuse to bow down to it.
Yes, I refuse to bow down to it.
Yes, I refuse.

I have given up my word;
have given up it all.
The worst has won, just let me go.
You will never know the worst,
just giving up with all.
My time is done, just let me go.
All the days I've wasted on you,
I'm moving forward.
I am saved, am saved.

I'll walk away,
and I never plan on looking back.
I'm safe, I've won, I've lived your life
and now I want mine back.

Your scream: it...
Your scream: it makes me sick.
I won't back down.

I have given up my word;
have given up it all.
The worst has won, just let me go.
You will never know the worst,
just giving up with all.
My time is done, just let me go.
All the days I've wasted on you,
I'm moving forward.
I am saved, am saved.

Every single word you say:
take them back
and shove them down your throat.
If you're looking for reasons to run
then run back home.

Is there something I can do
to make me new?
Is there something, anything I can say?
Life is here to say.

You told me (what are we waiting for)
that you were there,
and that you'd never regret.

Summer Dies In Connersville Lyrics

Artist : I SEE STARS
Album : Digital Renegade

I found hope in the world again
and for the first time I feel alright.

Never again.
You can try to scream, but no one's listening.
Never again.
You can try to scream, but no one will hear you.

Life's just a stage.
If just given the chance to save, words could save you all.
I've got the time if you see the light in me
and the words could save us all.

Life's just a stage. Life's just fuckin stage.
If given the chance, words could save us all.
You need to open your eyes;
expose them from disguise.
This isn't a game, this is our lives.

No, you won't be saved
unless you're willing to help yourself
to fuel the fire for once.
Let's go.

I will not be controlled.
How's this for a twist of fate?

Life's just a stage.
If just given the chance to save, words could save you all.
I've got the time if you see the light in me
and the words could save us all.

I found hope in the world again
and for the first time I feel alright.

Electric Forest Lyrics

Artist : I SEE STARS
Album : Digital Renegade
(feat. Cassadee Pope of Hey Monday)

Let go of everything you have inside.
Let it show, you no longer have to hide.

I'll be there with you 'til the end's upon us;
when our eyes collide, I know you well.
Your stare sees directly through me.

It's almost dead silence when the lights go out.
I like to make believe that I have the show shut down.
'Cause then I feel relieved when the bass slowly sounds.
A crystal light shines and echoes through the crowd.

The people erupt and I become a part of the
machine that moves directly to the beat and I
am one with you and everyone who's heart is here.
Let yourself go, this is the only time to feel alive.
This brings me out to you and I'll say.

I'll scream it 'til my heart comes out of my chest
and leave it to the music to transcend the rest.
This life is just a perfect fit... for a mess like me.
(So many reasons to live; I need to to let them show.
I've made the hardest mistakes; I need to let them go.)
I feel the tempo rise. My eyes open wide.
I feel the well that is my heart overflow,
and now I'm losing control.

These flashing lights got me lifted off the ground.
What could go wrong? What could go wrong,
when all of us are together?
Never thought it would come down to this.

For the first time in my mind,
everything's coming to life.

I'll paint a picture in my head,
for the best.
I'll be the person to let us all see
everything hard to define.

Filth Friends Unite Lyrics

Artist : I SEE STARS
Album : Digital Renegade

You all know the fucking score
Everybody on the floor
Put your hands where I can see them
We're not playing around
One little move
And you're in the ground

We live on our own set of rules
Take everything and everyone down with you
We are a desperate kind
But this is a ruthless time

When I hit rock bottom
I go looking friends in the filthiest places
Yeah, yeah
I make ends meet cause I'm a bad bad man
When I hit rock bottom, the party has arrived
We won't be taken alive

We live on our own set of rules
Take everything and everyone down with you
We are a desperate kind
But this is a ruthless time

What if they just shut the lights out
So caught up in your digital world
What happens now?
What if they just shut the lights out
And all the city lights go black
What happens now?
What if they just shut the lights out
So caught up in your digital world
What happens now
Lights out
Lights out

You all know the fucking score
Everybody on the floor
Put your hands where I can see them
We're not fucking around
One little move
And you're in the ground

Lights out

This Isn't A Gameboy Lyrics

Artist : I SEE STARS
Album : Digital Renegade

I think I took it too far this time.
Don’t think there are things (out there I spy[?])
My lips are sealed, pick up the phone.
I know it’s real.

I woke up today feeling oh so strange in every single way.
I must be out of my head, as I try to make decisions like these.
I’m so confused; I never lost my way back home.
I’m so confused; I swear I lost my way back home.

I think I floated too far this fall.
I float in space ‘til I hear my world.
I need a friend. Is this the end?
I’m loosing it.

I woke up today feeling oh so strange in every single way.
I must be out of my head, as I try to make decisions like these.
I’m so confused; I never lost my way back home.
I’m so confused; I swear I lost my way back home.

I’m never coming down. I’m never coming down.
I’m never coming down from these clouds.
I try to tell myself, a king fit for the crown
will finally take back the world.

I’m never coming down. I’m never coming down.
I’m never coming down from these clouds.
I try to tell myself, a king fit for the crown,
a king fit for the crown in this world.

I woke up today feeling oh so strange in every single way.
I must be out of my head, as I try to make decisions like these.
I’m never coming down. I’m never coming down.
I’m never coming down from these clouds.
I try to tell myself, a king fit for the crown,
a king fit for the crown in this world.

4th And Vine Lyrics

Artist : O'CONNOR, SINEAD
Album : How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?

Gonna put my pink dress on
And do my hair up tight
I'm gonna put some eyeliner on
I'm gonna look real nice
I'm going down to the church
On 4th & vine
I'm gonna marry my love
And we'll be happy for all time
Yeah, he's the sweetest man you could find
So gentle and so kind
And he's got those big green eyes
I can't believe me luck, he's mine
Not that he's no wuss
Girls, you know his love is serious
So warm inside
When he takes me for a buggy ride
When he takes me for a buggy ride
I will, I will, I will, I will
I do, I do, I do, I do

Gonna put my pink dress on
And do my hair up tight
I'm gonna put some eyeshadow on
It's gonna look real nice
I'm going down to the church
On 4th & vine
I'm gonna marry my love
And we'll be happy for all time
We're gonna have six children
And enough love for them
That they'll be happy all the time
I won't believe me luck, they're mine
They'll sing all day
They'll sing all night
Because their mama and their pa
A-love them so right
I will, I will, I will, I will
I do, I do, I do, I do

Gonna put my pink dress on
And do my hair up tight
I'm gonna put some perfume on
It's gonna smell real nice
I'm going down to the church
On 4th & vine
I'm gonna marry my love
And we'll be happy for all time
Yeah, he's the sweetest man you could find
So gentle and so kind
And he's got those big green eyes
I can't believe me luck, he's mine
Not that he's no wuss
Girls, you know his love is serious
So warm inside
When he takes me for a buggy ride
When he takes me for a buggy ride

Reason With Me Lyrics

Artist : O'CONNOR, SINEAD
Album : How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?

Hello, you don't know me,
But I stole your laptop and I took your TV.
I sold your Granny's rosary for 50p.
And I even pulled an old hijack,
Said I had a hypodermic in me backpack,
But I was only bluffing.

Oh, so long I've been a junkie,
I ought to wrap it up and mind my monkeys.
I really want to mend my ways;
I'm gonna call that number one of these days.
It's not too late.

I'm the one who sits in the bathroom,
I'm the one who doesn't know how to have fun.
I'm the one to smoke a mist all around me
Cause I don't like no one around me.
Cause if I love someone, I might lose someone.
Cause if I love someone, I might lose someone.

Oh, so long I've been a junkie,
I ought to wrap it up and mind my monkeys.
I really want to mend my ways;
I'm gonna call that number one of these days.
I'm gonna reach a hand out to you,
Say "Would you pull me up? Now could you?"
I don't want to waste the life God gave me,
And I don't think that it's too late to save me.

Reason with me
Let's reason together
Reason with me
Let's reason together

Old Lady Lyrics

Artist : O'CONNOR, SINEAD
Album : How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?

When I'm an old lady
I'm gonna be his baby
I'm gonna wrap myself around him
And then I'm gonna kiss him

But that's a way down the line
You see for now he isn't mine..
But I don't mind waiting
And the longing's not aching

Cause I know
One day he'll say, "that's my girl"
The happiest words in the world
Make me laugh like an idiot
Not be so serious

For now when I'm around him
I act like I don't care for him
I even act like I don't like him
Ignore him, to spite him

But only so that I won't smile at him
For everyone would know I love him
And that's so uncool
Cuz it's messing with all the rules

And I know
One day he'll say, "that's my girl"
The happiest words in the world
Make me laugh like an idiot
Not be so serious

Take Off Your Shoes Lyrics

Artist : O'CONNOR, SINEAD
Album : How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?

I bleed the blood of Jesus over you
I bleed the blood of Jesus over you
And over every fucking thing you do
Seven times I bleed the blood of Jesus over you
Take off your shoes--you're on hallowed ground
Take off your shoes--you're on hallowed ground
Even you can't lie when I'm around
Take off your shoes--you're on hallowed ground
Behold, at the last lamplight
At the very end of your street
I'm whispering something
"Come closer to me, come closer to me."
I say you're running out of battery
You're running out of battery
And I don't see no bunny
Around here
If you believed at all in your breviary
If you believed even in just the ghost of me
You wouldn't now be so surprised to see me
In vanity you took the name of me

You brought me into infamy
And now you're so surprised to see me
And now you're so surprised to see me
Behold, at the last lamplight
At the very end of your street
I'm whispering something
"Come closer to me, come closer to me."
I say you're running out of battery
You're running out of battery
And I don't see no bunny
Around here
Take off your shoes--you're on hallowed ground
Take off your shoes--you're on hallowed ground
Even you can't lie when I'm around
Take off your shoes--you're on hallowed ground
Take off your shoes--you're on hallowed ground
Take off your shoes--you're on hallowed ground
Even you can't lie when I'm around
Take off your shoes--you're on hallowed ground

Back Where You Belong Lyrics

Artist : O'CONNOR, SINEAD
Album : How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?

Oh it's hard to
be a boy
when
all the men have
lost their joy
and they can't find the ones they left behind.

Harder still to think
of being a man
in this world of
no lessons or love,
it's only war that men be thinking of.

Should you stay
or should you come down with me?
Is that the question
you are asking of me?
And do you think that you can
take the answer?
As it turns,
you have to wear life well.

Come down with me,
come down
when you need me
but for now I want you
to be happy.

Sometimes life does
things to you
that will hurt you
and confuse you,
but when you're left behind
you're sure to find.

I am with you though I can't
come with you.
I am in you and I'm
always part of you,
and all you ever have to do
to bring me to you

Is come down with me,
come down
when you need me,
but for now I want you
to be happy.

So you must go back home,
that's where you belong.
You must go back home.

You must go back home,
that's where you belong.

You must go back home,
and I can't come along...

The Wolf Is Getting Married Lyrics

Artist : O'CONNOR, SINEAD
Album : How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?

I used to have no wolves around me
I was too free, if that's possible to be
No safety, is what I mean
No solid foundation to keep me

But the sun's peeping out of the sky
Where there used to be only gray
The wolf is getting married
And he'll never cry again

Your smile makes me smile
Your laugh makes me laugh
Your joy gives me joy
Your hope gives me hope

And the sun's peeping out of the sky
Where there used to be only gray
The wolf is getting married
And he'll never cry again

Never cry again

Even if something terrible is happening
You laugh and that's the thing I love about you most, yeah

Your smile makes me smile
Your laugh makes me laugh
Your joy gives me joy
Your hope gives me hope

And the sun's peeping out of the sky
Where there used to be only gray
The wolf is getting married
And he'll never cry again

Queen Of Denmark Lyrics

Artist : O'CONNOR, SINEAD
Album : How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?

I wanted to change the world
But I could not even change my underwear
And when the shit got really really out of hand
I had it all the way up to my hairline
Which keeps receding like my self-confidence
As if I ever had any of that stuff anyway
I hope I didn't destroy your celebration
Or your Bar Mitzvah, birthday party or your Christmas
You put me in this cage and threw away the key
It was this 'us and them' shit that did me in
You tell me that my life is based upon a lie
I casually mention that I pissed in your coffee
I hope you know that all I want from you is sex
To be with someone that looks smashing in athletic wear
And if your haircut isn't right you'll be dismissed
Get your walking papers and you can leave now

Don't know what to want from this world
I really don't know what to want from this world
I don't know what it is you wouldn't want from me
You have no right to want anything from me at all
Why don't you take it out on somebody else?
Why don't you tell somebody else that they're selfish?
Weepy coward and pathetic...

Who's gonna be the one to save me from myself?
You'd better bring a stun gun and perhaps a crowbar
You'd better pack a lunch and get up really early
And you should probably get down on your knees and pray
It's really fun to look embarrassed all the time
Like you could never cut the mustard with the big boys
I really don't know who the fuck you think you are
Can I please see your license and your registration?

Don't know what to want from this world
I really don't know what to want from this world
I don't know what it is you wouldn't want from me
You have no right to want anything from me at all
Why don't you take it out on somebody else?
Why don't you tell somebody else that they're selfish?
Weepy coward and pathetic...

So Jesus hasn't come in here to pick you up
You'll still be sitting here ten years from now
You're just a sucker but we'll see who gets the last laugh
Who knows, maybe you'll be the next queen of Denmark

Very Far From Home Lyrics

Artist : O'CONNOR, SINEAD
Album : How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?

I don't know where I'll go
When I go
I only know
It's very far from home

And I don't know where you are
Either, but I know
You're very far from home
A long for you
I see you in my dreams
So clearly
But when I wake up I'm lone
And don't know where you go
But I know
It's very far from home

No one knows where I'll go
When I go
Oh they don't know I'm so far from home
And it's my fault, but you god lost
Let me create something other than trouble
All I've made find you
Let me mind you
Even if it has to be
Very far from home

I long for you
But see you in my dreams
So clearly
But when I wake up I'm alone
And I don't know where you've gone
But I know it's very far from home
It's very far from home

I Had A Baby Lyrics

Artist : O'CONNOR, SINEAD
Album : How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?

I had a baby and he looks just like me
A bald headed baby, he's been the makings of me
His eyes are so mean, just like you
But you haven't seen him
And I don't know what to tell him
I don't know what to tell him!

I had a thing with a man and he wasn't mine to be with
I woke up one green day with him up inside me, hey
That did excited me, and I was crazy
I was always crazy!

But I had a baby, so I'm never sorry!
He's been the makings of me
And when he asks, I'll tell him
That you love him, but you can't be his
And when he says why
Why I said, don't know why
Because I don't know why!

You should suffer instead of me
Over shit that's because of me
I wish it wasn't so crazy
Broke my mind tell this time

But I had a baby, so beautifully
He's been the makings of me

I had a fling with a man who wasn't mine to be with
I woke up one green day with him up inside me, hey
That did excited me, and I was crazy
I was always crazy!

V.I.P. Lyrics

Artist : O'CONNOR, SINEAD
Album : How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?

[Preacher:]
Someone say, "Boldness".

[Congregation:]
Boldness

[Preacher:]
The Bible says in Proverbs 28 verse 1 "The righteous shall be bold like a lion." Bold like a lion. Bold like a lion. The righteous shall be bold like a lion.

What is a real VIP?
Do we have the balls to go to that party?
Or do we rather stay and dance with vanity?
Tell me now what's a real VIP?

And who are we to give that name to us?
When we don't know the lives of others
When we can barely raise a finger
To help our own sisters and brothers
Wasn't it in history
The artists always spoke their people's needs
Now we're gorged upon what devils feed
In the shallow form of MTV
Telling the youth to worship futile dreams
And along for bling and for material things
I tell you what a real VIP is
A face that never was nor will be kissed
To whom exactly are we giving hope
When we stand behind the velvet rope
Or get our pictures taken with the pope
Like some sick April fool kind of joke

Who is the really really real real VIP
The one the true and the most conquering king
Who looks around at everything
And sees exactly what we've been
His is the face that never was nor will be kissed
Do we think we'll be down on his guest list?
When we're standing at the gate
After being fashionably late
There'll be no make up and there'll be no film crews
No Vuitton bags and no Manolo shoes
When he's presiding over you
Asking you, "Did you love only you,
Or did you stand for something else
Besides the hankering for fame and fame itself?"
The one who always was and always is
Will show you what a real VIP is

The fatherless
The motherless
The ravaged child at home who cried to you
You will be asked to say what did you do
And what's behind this velvet curtain?
Don't know but I can say for certain
A face that never was nor will be kissed
Will show you what a real VIP is

[Whispering:]
How can you say we are wise and we possess the instruction of the Lord? Certainly for nothing your pains are labored for nothing your righteous are written. The wise will be put to shame. See? They reject the word of the Lord so their wisdom amounts to nothing. They dress the wounds of my poor people as though they are nothing saying, "Peace peace," when there is no peace. Saying, "All is well," when nothing is well.
.

[Whispering:]
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning it is now and ever shall be, world without end. Oh Yeah.

Hello, you don't know me,
But I stole your laptop and I took your TV.
I sold your Granny's rosary for 50p.
And I even pulled an old hijack,
Said I had a hypodermic in me backpack,
But I was only bluffing.

Oh, so long I've been a junkie,
I ought to wrap it up and mind my monkeys.
I really want to mend my ways;
I'm gonna call that number one of these days.

I'm the one to smoke a mist all around me

The Wolf Is Getting Married Lyrics

Album : How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?

I used to have no wolves around me
I was too free, if that's possible to be
No safety, is what I mean
No solid foundation to keep me

But the sun's peeping out of the sky
Where there used to be only gray
The wolf is getting married
And he'll never cry again

Your smile makes me smile
Your laugh makes me laugh
Your joy gives me joy
Your hope gives me hope

And the sun's peeping out of the sky
Where there used to be only gray
The wolf is getting married
And he'll never cry again

Never cry again

Even if something terrible is happening
You laugh and that's the thing I love about you most, yeah

Your smile makes me smile
Your laugh makes me laugh
Your joy gives me joy
Your hope gives me hope

And the sun's peeping out of the sky
Where there used to be only gray
The wolf is getting married
And he'll never cry again

Queen Of Denmark Lyrics

Artist : SINEAD O'CONNOR
Album : How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?

I wanted to change the world
But I could not even change my underwear
And when the shit got really really out of hand
I had it all the way up to my hairline
Which keeps receding like my self-confidence
As if I ever had any of that stuff anyway
I hope I didn't destroy your celebration
Or your Bar Mitzvah, birthday party or your Christmas
You put me in this cage and threw away the key
It was this 'us and them' shit that did me in
You tell me that my life is based upon a lie
I casually mention that I pissed in your coffee
I hope you know that all I want from you is sex
To be with someone that looks smashing in athletic wear
And if your haircut isn't right you'll be dismissed
Get your walking papers and you can leave now

Don't know what to want from this world
I really don't know what to want from this world
I don't know what it is you wouldn't want from me
You have no right to want anything from me at all
Why don't you take it out on somebody else?
Why don't you tell somebody else that they're selfish?
Weepy coward and pathetic...

Who's gonna be the one to save me from myself?
You'd better bring a stun gun and perhaps a crowbar
You'd better pack a lunch and get up really early
And you should probably get down on your knees and pray
It's really fun to look embarrassed all the time
Like you could never cut the mustard with the big boys
I really don't know who the fuck you think you are
Can I please see your license and your registration?

Don't know what to want from this world
I really don't know what to want from this world
I don't know what it is you wouldn't want from me
You have no right to want anything from me at all
Why don't you take it out on somebody else?
Why don't you tell somebody else that they're selfish?
Weepy coward and pathetic...

So Jesus hasn't come in here to pick you up
You'll still be sitting here ten years from now
You're just a sucker but we'll see who gets the last laugh
Who knows, maybe you'll be the next queen of Denmark
