Id Engager Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : Skeletal Lamping

(Ahh, yeah!)
(Is that my Concorde on the launcher?)
(Looks good!)
(Ahh ah Ahh ah Ahh ha ha ha!)
(Talking to myself?)
(One, two, three, four)

Ooh ahh [4x]

He's just a slutty little flirt and sister he's only gonna hurt you (watch yourself)
Ladies I'm screaming out to you from the depths of this phallocentric tyranny
My self-conceptions awaiting your invasion clumsy penetration punishment (oh yeah)
When the hope of another wet nightmare is all we have to live for

Can't help it if it's true, don't wanna be your man, just wanna play with you (play with you)
I can't help it if it's true, don't wanna be your man, no I just wanna (play with you)

He predicted the eight-bit empire now he occupies the blur as well
When asking why their kisses are sorrowful remember the howl of our first verse
(My memento little star)

Ooh ahh [4x]

(And again)

Ahh!
Ninjas!
(Ninjas)
Prove it!
(Prove it)
Right!
(Right)

Can't help it if it's true, don't wanna be your man--play, play--with m-Ahh!

Can't help it if it's true, don't wanna be your man, just wanna play with you (play with you)
I can't help it if it's true, don't wanna be your man (Hey!)
you know, its alright, I just wanna play with you (play with you)

I Feel Ya' Strutter Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : False Priest

I see it, girlfriend
I got so lucky with you.
Yes I feel you strutter
I got so lucky with you
So freaked out and depressed
But now I see how I was so blessed,
So blessed with you girlfriend

I know there ain't no one person that everybody else in the world
Hates on, wants to die,
Sometimes I do think it's me,
Like I'm in a fight simulator and I am crushing the birth of any potential memory
I'm still way erect for you, not going to lie
You cured me of my death anxiety, only took you two tries
The head scene dropped the vaccine, and I've chosen a very powerful penance

I know it girlfriend I got so lucky with you
I feel ya' strutter I got so lucky with you
So hammer on guitar for who you are
With me being your straight up only solid number yeah
I see it girlfriend I got so lucky with you
I feel ya' strutter I got so lucky with you
So tweaked out and depressed but now I see that i was blessed
So blessed with you girlfriend

I want to prove to you I've advanced in varna
I can't even pick up that brahmin signal any more
I can't cope with such an abstract blackmail domination spasm
Although it makes a temporary difference
I'm really not your possession, I am just your friend.
Still there's an invisible suture that keeps me in my seat next to you till the end.

I made a wish that I really shouldn't have
Cause when it came true I didn't know what to do with it
Are we to blame for our dreams?
I see your progress as a predator just like everything else

We spoke of frontal lobe regression, this is not one of those

I know it girlfriend I got so lucky with you
I feel ya' strutter I got so lucky with you
So Cristal mimosa fizz for what you is,
With being your one solid lion-hearted brother yeah
Girlfriend I got so lucky with you I feel ya' strutter
I got so lucky with you
So freaked out and depressed but now I see that I was blessed,
So blessed with you girlfriend

Our Riotous Defects Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : False Priest
(feat. Janelle Monáe)

You are such a crazy girl
And I don't know why I even tried to make you love me
I want it babe but you are just a
Crazy girl you are such a crazy girl and I don't why
I even try to help you

When I first met you at that al-anon meeting
You made that reference to "All Your Goodies Are Gone"
And even sang a verse, I was amazed how husky your singing voice was.
I wanted to talk to you so badly but I didn't know how to come on because
You've got that kind of beauty that makes people nervous
I know it's fucked, but before we got together I even hooked up with one of your cousins
Just to feel somehow closer to you
Because I knew like you guys were best friends and you talked everyday
And it was thrilling to touch something that had touched you.
In my head you were like this goddess, but, in fact, you're just a

Crazy girl
You're just a crazy girl
I don't know why I even try
To understand you (can't stand you)
Your ass is crazy girl
You are so crazy girl
And I don't know why I even try
To relate to you (can't wait for you, it's too late for you)

My god I should have realized, on our second date
When you dragged me into the bathroom at Tanika's house
And screamed at me for like twenty minutes
Cause I had contradicted you in front of your friends,
I was like "oh"
And then later that night at my apartment
As punishment you killed my beta fish
Just threw it out the window

I did everything I could to make you happy
I participated in all your protests,
Supported your stupid little blog,
Got a Bowflex, wore colored contacts to match your dresses,
Whatever your eyes caught I bought,
Still we fought
Like Ike and Tina but in reverse
Cause you're so crazy girl

You're just too crazy girl
And I don't know why I even try to understand you
Well... I think you're crazy girl, you are so crazy girl
And I don't know why I even try to make sense of you
Oh tell me why,
Someone tell me why my heart's real weird for you still

I was like crazy fan over you
Like I'm all star struck over you
Like I'm getting handcuffed over you

Now it's only fucked up

[Janelle Monáe:]
My frame works in constant confusion
I can't peel away the flowers of this psychic disturbance
And our riotous defects

Coquet Coquette Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : False Priest

Coquet coquette you know I won't forget
How you kissed me strange to prove you were mythical
Oh my coquette you used my voice as your earthly vehicle

Coquet coquette you know I won't forget
How you hurt me twice to prove you were cynical
Oh my coquette you are the death you are the pinnacle

With you I can only see my black-light constellations
And other shit I don't think I have the language to say
I don't want to catch you with some other guy's face under your eyelids
Something must be wrong
You give me emotional artifacts that can find no purchase

Coquet coquette you know I won't forget
How you sold me out to prove you were typical
Oh my coquette you're Herculean you are so miserable

Coquet coquette you know I won't forget
How you made me cry to prove I was dutiful
Oh my coquette my teenage lust for you is so beautiful

With you I can only see my black-light constellations
And other shit I don't think I have the language to say
I don't want to catch you with some other guy's face under your eyelids
Something must be wrong
You give me emotional artifacts that can find no purchase

Godly Intersex Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : False Priest

Too high too fast, going to break our necks
Everything about you screamed of godly intersex

Nothing of thirds, berdache,
No human tracks, the new forms were germinating
I saw your aureole wax

We danced for victory
We danced for mom's misery
We danced for miscarriages
We danced in garbage too

You, everybody's stoned about you
Everybody's thrown about you
Everybody's stoned about you

I was running from home to school
To home trying to keep my parents together
Heir to their chaos there was such pressure to score high
So I had to drop it
As if I stood a chance after my uncle's suicide
Everybody looking at me to succeed him as the family's golden myth
While all my identity mutations were being dosed by books
and all the drugs I took to prove I was brave
but I was so afraid of a death without measure
You are my greatest treasure
Yeah I had like zero pleasure until you excused me from your archetype

You, everybody's stoned about you
Everybody's thrown about you
Everybody's stoned about you

Enemy Gene Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : False Priest
(feat. Janelle Monáe)

Aren't you sick of the con
Not quite Homo-Luminous
They're expecting so little
Can't feel the miracle

A zombies licking your window
For black body radiation

[Janelle Monáe:]
Love breaks the machine
Everything is half apart--what can it mean?
How can I trust my fractious heart
Knowing I have the enemy gene?

Love breaks the machine
Everything is half in dream--how can it be?
Everything is born in shame
It's not just me
Particle wave duality
How can we ever evolve
When our gods are so primitive?
They destroy the film

They want to disable my system
Looking for traces of a clean hit
If the end of the world has ever happened
This must be it
I've grown too strong that's what they said
To keep my animal spirit
It empties me
Now I'm vacant

Love breaks the machine
Everything is half apart--what can it mean?
How can I trust my fractious heart
Knowing I have the enemy gene?

Love breaks the machine
Everything is half in dream--how can it be?
Everything's born in shame
It's not just me
Particle wave duality
I know that we'll never survive
This little victory

Love breaks the machine
Everything is half apart--what can it mean?
How can I trust my fractious heart
Knowing I have the enemy gene?

Love breaks the machine
Everything is half in dream--how can it be?
Everything is born in shame
It's not just me
Particle wave duality
How can we ever evolve when our gods are so primitive?
They destroy our hope for peace
Hope for love

Hydra Fancies Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : False Priest

How 'bout you my new favorite thing?
I heart you though don't know you very well
I really hope that this summer you will change your pursuit
I throw my guns down for you

How 'bout you my new favorite thing?
Their flashbulbs burn my irises
But still I love to see you upon your pedestal
I just love to see you win

Oh when they torture you
It's like standing on a dragon's tongue
They flashed your pretty nightmare on the sky when I was playing your card
Kissing your deaf son

How 'bout you my new favorite thing?
Will you have me in your orbit evermore?
I know it's work to cope with my dementia and stuff
But I'll throw my guns down for you

How 'bout you my new favorite thing?
Today I planted some flowers in your name
I am trying to build a freak flag empire for three
Cause I just love to see you win

When they experiment I will become your surrogate
I really can't conceive of any balance in my future anyways
The coma is poisoned

You've rattled me, there's uncontrollable sensory reactions on infinite defeat
I've so much to tell you and it can't wait till you're born again

Like A Tourist Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : False Priest

I saw your movie tonight
I thought you were pretty good
I'm so happy that you're doing what you want to
You go to your favorite dark place, think of the auto-da-fé
Unicorns eating baby meat
There's a dragon rape if you want one (one's the loneliest number)
Smokehood merlion, female erection,
You fetishize the archetype
Ha! you fetishize the archetype

Don't treat me like a tourist, let's stay high on a negative wave
And paint it black just like the good times
Don't treat me like a tourist, let's stay high
They break our hearts like it's our birthdays, soak us in animal blood

I want somebody to frisk me
I want this night to distort me
But I didn't come here just to see you dancing
No, or to admire your art
Or try and cure your Androphobic heart
Anyways I'm crippled inside

Don't treat me like a tourist, let's stay high on a negative wave
And paint it black just like the good times
Don't treat me like a tourist, let's stay 'woke' like Pharaoh
And paint it feral in our heads again
Like when we were passengers

Don't treat me like a tourist, let's stay high
They break our hearts like it's our birthdays, soak us in animal blood

Sex Karma Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : False Priest
(feat. Solange Knowles)

I believe we're moving on up
Your sex karma must be good
Cause I'm funny for you
Ain't no body do me better
When you hit me I'm a cloud
Baby, I'm a cloud
I feel my power is flickering
With you it's strange electronic reactions

[Solange Knowles:]
I know that you want to swing
Run and touch my everything
Cause I look like a playground to you, player

Close your eyes and count to three,
I'll kiss you where I shouldn't be
Cause you look like a playground to me, player

You are my only luxury item
Anyone try to steal you
I'll fight 'em

Let's go do some hide and seek
I know you are a little freak
You look like a playground to me, player

I was afraid to call you up
Cause you were really hard to fly
On our first try

You took me centuries to master
In the next life I will have to learn you faster

I'm not a diamond, so you'll flatter
Cause we're not slaves to physical matter

I know that you want to swing
Run and touch my everything
Cause I look like a playground to you, player

Close your eyes and count to three,
I'll kiss you where I shouldn't be
Cause you look like a playground to me, player

You are my only luxury item
Anyone try to steal you
I'll fight 'em

Let's go do some hide and seek
I know you are a little freak
You look like a playground to me, player

You look like a playground to me [8x]

Close your eyes and count to three,
I'll kiss you where I shouldn't be

Girl Named Hello Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : False Priest

Who's your reggae woman now, do you even know?
I did a line with a girl named hello (I'm just kidding, yo)

Who's your reggae woman now, do you even know?
I did a line with a girl named hello (I'm just kidding, yo)

Took an overdose, didn't do shit

If I treated someone else the way I treat myself
I'd be in jail

If I treated someone else like the way I treat myself
I'd be in jail

Anyways, boo boo, you're a breakthrough, I love you like being kissed
And thank you for the wonderful birthday

Who's your reggae woman now, do you even know?
I did a line with a girl named hello (I'm just kidding, yo)

If I treated someone else the way I treat myself
I'd be in jail

Famine Affair Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : False Priest

I don't want you anymore
I don't love you anymore
Go away, go away, go away
You're a bad thing, terrible thing
You destroy my head
You un-calibrate my skull
Go away, go away
You're a bad thing, useless thing
You marginalize me
You sabotage me
Go away, go away, go away
You're a bad thing, you horrible thing
You steal my light
You suffocate my life
Go away, go away
You're a bad thing, you miserable thing

Like some childish demon that takes pleasure from its sting
You're a bad thing, bad thing
Bad thing
You act aloof
Say that I'll crawl back, you must be sick

Thought she was my Annie Hall
Or at least Ali McGraw
Now I feel so wilted
It's a famine affair
The whole attempt was shoddy
Just to put trash in my body

He was nostalgic for the ground
Hope down the drain
Still flew to your tragedy in a glass-bottom airplane
Looping like a retard
Are you still playing the race card?
She said you're not boring
I'm just bored with you
The psychology behind it is ruthless
Wish it weren't true
Wish we weren't so complicated
Wish you weren't so medicated

I don't want you anymore
I don't love you anymore
Go away, go away, go away
You're a bad thing, terrible thing
You don't let me sleep
And when you do it's just teeth falling out nightmares
Go away, you're a bad thing, useless thing
You marginalize me
You sabotage me
Go away, go away, go away
You're a bad thing, you horrible thing
You've been trying to make me ugly so you'd have a reason to leave
So you could say you were just like abandoning the ruins
Bad thing, you miserable thing

Like some childish demon who
Keeps insects on a string
You are bad thing, bad thing, bad thing
You act aloof, say that I'll crawl back, you must be sick

Casualty Of You Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : False Priest

How could I tolerate looking you in the eyes
How you've evolved, no tears at all
It's not fair, it shouldn't be like this
You shouldn't be so composed
I don't know, should be more awkward
Hate you for bringing this up,
Making me feel what I know just isn't true
You've ruined me, you're a terrorist, I'm a casualty of you

Your sister called today, heard the phone ring, really why should I answer?
She's so critical
I wasn't surprised to hear her single word message
Just said "stop!"

You stole something from me
Can't say what, just know it's gone now
Everything is wrong
Everything is wrong
Everything is wrong
I'm a casualty of you

Around The Way Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : False Priest

You say you just want to stand there and dim out
Just gonna root there and space
Sulk cause there ain't nobody really doped about your inventory
Absorb celestial articles from neutral stations
From the pain participants
And by far mostly neo-family break strike pattern strike break deface

When you get so quiet and depressed, hate it and I drop away again
Can't understand I want to die again
I'm out here in the swell getting fucked up trying to cure you
It's so draining
Really how can I help if you won't talk to me?
Thought you were around the way
Not just a cliche

[Nina Barnes:]
Eg har aldri tenkt meg sanningi
Som ein husfugl,
Men um ho so vore,
Kan du godt strjuka henne med fjøri
Og ikkje jaga henne upp i ei krå
Til ho snur ugleaugo og klør imot deg.
Andre held sanningi for
Ei kald knivsegg,
Ho er både
Yin og yang,
Ormen i graset,
Og fuglekongen som lettar frå ørni
Når hu trur seg høgst.
Eg har òg set

When you get so quiet and depressed, hate it and I drop away again
Can't understand I want to die again
I'm thrashing in the waves getting fucked up trying to cure you
It's so draining
How can I help if you won't talk to me?
I thought you were a lover friend
I'm your friend

You Do Mutilate? Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : False Priest

I need to mutilate
We're going to celebrate our emotional poverty
Give the answers all away

I painted my suitcase red for the reading
Which only ended in conversation rape
All they want, genetic telephonic pills
Until the Spanish kids got so ill
I was home-schooling with a knife in my shoe

Never seen corpses act so cruel
The self brutality was oh so angular
I made him a potion in a newspaper cup,
Smiled, gave me a shrug, said I was a fuck-up
Now I see your face selling Chinese urine

She came over the fence
With an argument in her head, no empathy
Escape strategy
I understood her
We were trying to share a genuine human moment
Just like the way they do in movies

I've hit a wall with this suicidal depression
It's not the star I'm trying to call
I've been standing on the strand far too long y'all
Go ahead, go ahead!

What you want? somebody who will slap away your blindness?
What you want? somebody who would corrupt your heart with too much kindness?
Salute to your Busta Rhymes-ness

I got a black fang in Chicago
My superwoman licked
I don't need a refill of this shit,
I need something that works motherfucker!

I wondered were you flattered, I tried to get you drunk
I know you're collecting disciples
I know you want to be the godmother of soul-punk
Someday, someday
They're all skyscrapers for you Jane
Never use your given name
I want to set you up for a sequel
Make you feel like promised people

I always knew you were special
Your best friend told me he saw you crying
Everybody wants to crescendo
Take home a memento

We tried to isolate XX infinite pleasure XY
Yet I still was their family secret,
A white symptom of some wilderness hate ceremony,
Custodian for experimental post human relationships, in fact
We tried to isolate XX infinite pleasure XY ineffectually,
Now I know I'm not allowed to show the pain,
Not allowed to expose the pain

I still was their family secret,
A white symptom of some wilderness hate ceremony,
Custodian for experimental post human relationships, in fact
We tried to isolate XX infinite pleasure XY ineffectually,
Now I know i'm not allowed to show the pain,
Not allowed to expose the pain

All the white people from my neighborhood are dead
All the black people have turned pink for the winter
Everybody is searching for a cause
A reason to blow themselves up
Could be anything
When will certain people realize
That an afterlife is nothing to live for
Nothing to die for
Nothing to fight for
If those in this life are not sacred
Then nothing that is a part of it
Is sacred either

If you think God is more important than your neighbor
You're capable of terrible evil
If you think some prophet's words
Are more important than your brother
And your sister,
You're ill
And you're wrong
You're wrong

Gelid Ascent Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : Paralytic Stalks

You are what parasites evolved from
Still an unanswered question
You are the refused energy from a superior form
Nothing that occurs to you is intended for your involvement
You're an irrelevant effect
Unavoidable, but of low influence
One last thing that you must understand
(To be dead is to be confused, to be mistaken)

You speak to me
Like the anguish of a child doused in flames
Oh, you speak to me
Like the stones that're bashing your skull and brain exposes
Oh it's always been the same
200,000 years of viciousness
The violent art dissolves
A lost, suffering, weak, cracked out species

Oh you speak to me
Like your life was annihilated in space
Oh you speak to me
In a voice that's trite, calm, and impassionate
And yeah, what do you know?
You know nothing of the abuses of everything
The regretedness of abandonment
The dehumanized regress of love
Oh you speak to me

Spiteful Intervention Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : Paralytic Stalks

It's fucking sad that we need a tragedy to occur to gain a fresh perspective in our lives
Nothing happens for a reason, there's no point even pretending you know the sad truth as well as I

Oh god, the morning light
Sun rays bring my paranoia
I can't function unless I'm the only one awake

Rancor of our
last conversation that
forbidden word you
deform to
handicap me then
abuse your advantage

I'm nervous my soul is returning to crystals,
because your eyes are an agent of darkness
There's nothing to fight
It's just a bit of fait accompli

I spend my waking hours haunting my life
I made the one I love start crying tonight
And it felt good
Still there must be a more elegant solution

Lately I'm rotted in the filth of
self offered agonies that really should
fill me with shame,
but all I have is this manic energy

I lost my page in being the black sinner disciple in your heart collage
Just want to celebrate me
Need to suffer more
Face our pure liberty
Converts officiate
Divides new stratagems to
Disembowel our corinthian characters

I spend my waking hours haunting my life
I made the one I love start crying tonight
And it felt good
Still there must be a more elegant solution

I know I'm upside down about you
Your kindness feels like blasphemy or some sick education on the limits of humanity
So I profane the laws of some Victorian garbage
And listen to you smashing up my studio again

I spend my waking hours haunting my life
I made the one I love start crying tonight
And it felt good
Still there must be a more elegant solution

Lately all I can produce is psychotic vitriol
That really should fill me with guilt
But all I have is asmatic energy

Dour Percentage Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : Paralytic Stalks

Waking up alone
No song to sing us off the edge
The speakers are blown
This planet is an orphanage
Deep abandonment issues at our core
But if not each other, let's fuck our tool to really keep us lethal

Ain't got no ride
Least not one that returns our message
Our parents aside,
this planet is an orphanage
And it cheapens us
the way you and I
torment each other
It's just the way we combine

Time for you to decide
Get on the concrete
You with the soldier
Are you just playing yourself and me too?
I got your letter and it hurt me so many ways
Had no breath to respond
Boy, you let your brothers down
And you would have it your own personal ghetto
But no one's forcing you to stay there
Our circle's not so cannibalistic, baby

Waking up alone
No song to sing us off the edge
The speakers are blown
This planet is an orphanage
Deep abandonment issues at our core
But if not each other, let's fuck our tool to really keep us lethal

Ain't got no ride
Least not one that returns our message
Our parents aside,
this planet is an orphanage
And it cheapens us
The way you and I
torture each other
It's just the way we collide

It's time to make up your mind
Get in the cellar
Are you going to betray yourself,
or come join us up on the days?
The conspiracy that's forever unfolding in your head
It's just not real
Boy, you let your people down
I put so much of myself here
Just to try and accommodate you
You know I saved your life a little too, hey brother

I don't resent you, but I can't settle the debt of our serrated history and blows I haven't got over yet

And it cheapens us the way you and I torment each other

We Will Commit Wolf Murder Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : Paralytic Stalks

Something's terrorized my psyche to get even
Lately you're the only human I believe in
I tried to understand his logic
But there's just no pattern there
No sympathetic voices anywhere
There's blood in my hair

Now I'm considered ugly from every angle
You're the only beauty I don't want to strangle
Can't you hear me crying out for guidance?
Yes, we hear but we don't care
There's no sympathetic victims anywhere
There's blood in my hair

I want to get all fucked up and tell you how I really feel
Because your vibrant blackness coco artery is so unreal
When I die I want you to die too
Not try to stay in this all
In a dimension without you, spit on this planet without you
I envy you because you can believe in things like I never could
And like, dose yourself into a coma over the bestiality of our race
All I meant how to send into some ancient reptilian form like an agnostic transsensiation
Don't know what that is (use your imagination)

They paralyze my psyche to get even
Lately you're the only dancer I believe in
I would put your dower's blood in my hair
No sympathetic voices anywhere
There's blood in my hair

Anti human armies spring from every angle
You're the only soldier I don't want to strangle
I can see this intolerance fate
So don't expect us to cooperate
Anyway, it's five lives too late
And there's blood in my hair

Harbors
Our most obliging harbor
For this illusion movies
I wish I'd be stung by
Tears of confusion
Will you
meet the common end to
your odd shaped mission?
Though it isn't true
I don't believe in that kind of plot
But still I pray for you

We will produce verity holocausts
We will commit acts of misery
We will weaponize silence in a sense
And we'll forget

Someone's terrorized my psyche to get even
Lately you're the only human I believe in
I suffer from this death to find a kingdom raised
Terror corpses in the vapor, martyr's wrapped in butcher paper

In the fall a monster possessed your mind
You're the only dancer I don't want to strangle
Can't you hear me crying out for guidance?
Yes, we hear but we don't care
There's no sympathetic voices anywhere
There's blood in my hair

I saw you laughing, but tomorrow you'll say you were there
You looked at me in disgust. Girl, why should I care?

There's blood in my hair [x3]
Blood in my hair
Fuck

Malefic Dowery Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : Paralytic Stalks

Love is not a debtor's prison
You don't have to serve a sentence
To pay back what you've been given

Now I live in fear of your schizophrenic genius
It's a tempestuous despot
That I can't seem to propiciate

Now I feel you're provoking me with your fidelity
But your loyalty and affections
Are somehow a vulpine act of hostility

Now we're a bore, we're afternoon TV
This thing our minds are screaming to defy
How can I bury this rebellion
While proving that I'm still, you know, your rock n roll ally?

Once more I turn to my crotch for counsel, and it won't disappoint me
I know it's the shadow cast by what's looming in the profane
And it's how that engenders fear

I was dreaming of the hunt
You clapped your hands sharply twice to wake me up
Oh, darkness was gripping the sky
I knew I could still be your rock n roll ally

Ye, Renew The Plaintiff Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : Paralytic Stalks

The sacrifice must be for some unknwon deity, babe I just can't get hard for reality
At least not mine
Your love charity is like
an immortal bleeding beast and here
Is it to motivate my heart to function?
This age is a bitch that burns our dreams, so musn't you leave
Can only turn away
I wonder can I produce some of heat
to keep our experiment in our heart
I told you I could, I couldn't cope seeing the disappointment in your eyes

Do it

Oh Nina, how can I defend myself against this world
that batters me like a retarding cartoon?
It's too soon for salvation, but that word is just a joke

Oh Nina, my whole system is chaos
I'm desperate for something, but there's no human word for it
I should be happy, but
what I feel is corrupted, broken, impotent, and insane

Oh Nina, I've become so hateful
How am I ever going to survive this winter?
I can think of nothing but getting my revenge
Make those fuckers pay, but it's not gonna to happen and
It's eating a hole in me
Eating a hole in me
It's eating a hole
Eating a hole
Eating a hole in me

Little heart can see each suffering repeat
Our sole/soul concession
to find dimension

I've inherited spiritual sanctions for some old ancestral crime
It was committed long ago, but the punishment's absolved all down the family line
Everyone's so unstable, on my mother's side
And emotionally barren, on my father's side
But tell me how can I attempt to atone for somebody else's willful ignorance?

[rest quietly muffled under loudness]

Wintered Debts Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : Paralytic Stalks

Can't survive another comedown day
When my spirit houses so much pain
So much bitterness
So much bitterness

I need teach myself to feel again
Somehow I lost the thread of being human
Wrapped up in this bitterness
Too much bitterness, too much bitterness, too much bitterness, too much bitterness

I'm so confused, what is the function of this ego sickness?
Uselessly beleaguered by self hatred whisperings
And I can't deal with mourning at the carcass of my failures any longer

Slipping on my own vomit while I
tried to call you from a bathroom in Sao Paulo
But I was too drunk to formulate any sort of earthly language
So much bitterness
Too much bitterness, too much bitterness

Other people can say there is a true belief system
But all my life I've been betrayed by my mother's religion
So much bitterness
Too much bitterness, too much bitterness, too much bitterness, too much bitterness

I'm so destroyed, what is the purpose of this ego sickness?
Uselessly beseiged by self aversion whisperings
Man, I can't deal with mourning at the carcass of my failures any longer
Any longer

Can't seem to get the saddle on the spoils of this morbid fugue
My mantras of subhuman nature, just a veil for all elation

The ink's dripping all over me; the only regret I have is caring
Are we posing? Are we props, riding the anger until it stops?

Father, will we starve today? Father, will we starve?
Father, will we starve today? Father, will we starve?

No my child, there are wild women in here and a crafty fish am I
No my child, there are wild women in here and a fleshy catch am I

Will our quarters be the sunken earth deep beneath the meadow?
Will our quarters be the sunken earth deep beneath the ground?

No my child, you lay your head upon a monstrous felony
No my child, you lay your head upon a gross misdeed

[becomes too soft]
Father will I cry again, crossed the earth to fight
Father will I cry again, a victim of obese

No my child, don't be (pessable[?]), the world needs more distinction
For all retribution, a symbol of delight

It's hard to sympathize with those that won't fight for themselves
I can't hold both our faces off the flames much longer
The child of our struggle is free
I've fallen out of love with the prisoner
That's to save us

Exorcismic Breeding Knife Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : Paralytic Stalks

There's flash of dead eyed in these horse faced hours of ours
Don't let this be how I'll be remembered

The truest humanity seems to be in dialogue
Torn to paper shredded cowboy menace
True love never hated
The two donkey childs that will be remembered for our hearing

Is there a therapist?
Is there a psychosis?
Is there a comedy outside?
How can you perform, how can you operate?
Is there a solution then?
Why is there an apocalyse?
There's no such thing

How can you operate, how can you perform, how can you exploit?
How can you operate, how can you operate, how can you perform?
How... can you operate, how can you perform?
How can you operate, how can you perform?
How...

Authentic Pyrrhic Remission Lyrics

Artist : OF MONTREAL
Album : Paralytic Stalks

So much violence in my head
How are we still alive
The condition is under control
(No it's not, don't you ever stop buying that air)

I love how we're learning from each other
You are such an positive
You're so empowering
Left in your hands, I'm quite simply a different instrument
And you're the only one that ever put money on me
You think that I'd forget so easily
You can emit a charge that's (to die?)
I know we're of the same tribe
The Fall's the most productive season
Still a crippling fear as we (conceive?) and we're slightly (moribund?)
So naturally I want to help you and invoke the architect of salutary needs
Architects are present with divine mechanics, but oh how we're tyranized by
tentacles of their theorized to ability that's all so disappointing
(Sheer difference)

I love how we're learning from each other
You are such a positive
You're so empowering
In your hands, I'm quite simply a different instrument
And you're the only one that ever put money on me
How to advance transhuman singularity

I love how we're learning from each other
You are such a positive
You're so empowering
In your hands, I'm quite simply a different instrument
And you're the only one that ever put money on me
You think that I'd forget so easily

I love how we're learning from each other

Everytime I listen to my heart
Just get hurt

Until this afternoon, I was a nomad
No country would call me its son
I'd be a refugee, but I have no substance
Asking for papers, I have none

Until this afternoon, I was a friar
Amoral, chased, kicked, and hit
Hunted even in my dreaming
But there was no crime I did commit

Until this afternoon, I was an exile
And now that word is obsolete
The ontonations know concept of ego
Our illumination is complete

Look In My Eyes Lyrics

Artist : RAINS
Album : Stories

I know you're waiting and you're so damn nervous
I know you're hoping that I could explain this
Look in my eyes
I will try and show you

I know you think I am the devil in this
I know you're thinking that you don't deserve this
look in my eyes

What did you want me to be
When I see you falling
How did you want me to see
Your life and your lying
How did you want me to feel
when I see you trying
Trying so hard to fit in
To the world you are buying

I know you're thinking that you should have been there
I know you're thinking that no one cares
Just look in my eyes
I will try and show you

I know you think I should be saying sorry
You aren't the person I thought you'd be
Just look in my eyes

What did you want me to be
When I see you falling
How did you want me to see
Your life and your lying
How did you want me to feel
when I see you trying
Trying so hard to fit in
To the world you are buying

Just take a look at who you are
Don't blame me for the Hardest part
I told you when the
Rain starts falling it all starts crashing
Down and life will run you right into the ground
Just take a look at who you are

What did you want me to be
When I see you falling
How did you want me to see
Your life and your lying
How did you want me to feel
when I see you trying
Trying so hard to fit in
To the world you are buying

So Easily Lyrics

Artist : RAINS
Album : Stories

If I should die tomorrow
Would you be there in agony or ecstasy?
Would you leave it up to me?
Remember all the dreams we shared together?
Are we throwing it all away?
Hoping for something better?
We used to try.
We tried so hard together to open up ourselves
And make a better life for each other.

I'm not the man I thought I'd be
I am the one who was supposed to
Pick you up and let you down so easily.
I'm sorry if you're disappointed in me
I failed at all the things I ever tried
I thought they'd come so easily.

When the rain comes down and hits my face
I try and remember a day when they weren't
Tears of pain when will it all go away?
When the thought of you and someone new
Comes across my mind the only thing I know to do
Is hope you remember.
We used to try.

We tried so hard together to open up ourselves
And make a better life for each other

I'm not the man I thought I'd be
I am the one who was supposed to
Pick you up and let you down so easily.
I'm sorry if you're disappointed in me
I failed at all the things I ever tried
I thought they'd come so easily.

Why did you leave me so alone?
Lets give this another try.
Cause I swear I want to get it right this time.

I'm not the man I thought I'd be
I am the one who was supposed to
Pick you up and let you down so easily.
I'm sorry if you're disappointed in me
I failed at all the things I ever tried
I thought they'd come so easily.

Liar Lyrics

Artist : RAINS
Album : Stories

Lying on the bottom of a riverbed
Emotions are crumbling
An avalanche in the evening
Tonight
The story of a life made up in his head
He'd die for belief from her he knows he needs her
Everything he wanted is a lie
Convincing her is his only goal tonight

Don't, label me a liar
Don't, label me a liar
Don't, label me a liar
Don't, label me a liar

Think about days when happiness came
Through your eyes and into mine
Those were the best days of my life
Think about days when there was no time
And we would leave our house of lies
Those were the best days of my life
Now the days are cold and the nights are long
And I pray that you'll be coming home
Can I convince you of this lie

Don't, label me a liar
Don't, label me a liar
Don't, label me a liar
Don't, label me a liar

Are your night that long
I'm a liar
Are your nights that cold
I'm a liar
Are your night that long
I'm a liar
Are your nights that cold
I'm a liar

Don't, label me a liar
Don't, label me a liar
Don't, label me a liar
Don't, label me a liar

Five Minutes Lyrics

Artist : RAINS
Album : Stories

Sometimes I lie awake, And think about the day
I watch you all walk around with,
Your eyes half open
I smoke one more cigarette and, start it all over
You’re all so scared to face your own lives
You let it pass you by
Why don’t you try and open up your eyes
And see the door is closing
You always wait
Five Minutes for it to come
Five minutes and its over over
You seem to think your life’s just begun
Five minutes and its over over
There is a man in the kitchen with a shovel
A million dollars on the dining room table
Now every day he puts a little in the oven
You can spend as much or little as you’re able
You’re all so scared to face you’re own lives
You let it pass you by
Why don’t you try and open up your eyes
See what the man is burning
You always wait
Five minutes for it to come
Five minutes and its over over
You seem to think your life’s just begun
Five minutes and its over
Five minutes for it to come
Five minutes and its over over
You seem to think your life’s just begun
Five minutes and its over over
It’s your life
It’s your life
Why don’t you spend it the best you can
It’s your life
It’s your life
You always wait
Five minutes for it to come
Five minutes and its over over
You seem to think your life’s just begun
Five minutes and its over
Five minutes for it to come
Five minutes and its over over
You seem to think your life’s just begun
Five minutes and its over over

American Dream (The Story Of David) Lyrics

Artist : RAINS
Album : Stories

His mind is, lost in yesterday
He's standing, beneath a street light in L.A.
It doesn't matter, that I've lost everything
I've done my best to give it all away

I followed my American Dream
To a life of depression and poverty
A story that many of you don't know
I went from an American kid to a bum on the street in your neighborhood.
There are things about me that you don't know

I came from, small town U.S.A.
I've had my share, of failures along the way
Although I know success is a measure in your mind
You look at me now as I'm begging for a dime
You feel you have the right to judge me

I followed my American Dream
To a life of depression and poverty
A story that many of you don't know
I went from an American kid to a bum on the street in your neighborhood
There are things about me that you don't know

This is my story don't you see this could be every man?
All from some choices made not long ago
This is my story don't you see this could be any man?
Why we make choices no one else does

I followed my American Dream
I followed my American Dream
I followed my American Dream

I followed my American Dream
To a life of depression and poverty
A story that many of you don't know
I went from an American kid to a bum on the street in your neighborhood.
There are things about me that you don't know

Pressure Lyrics

Artist : RAINS
Album : Stories

All this pressure is eating me up inside
And I feel like I'm being buried alive again
All this pressure is tearing me up inside
And the fear of failing is on my mind again
The anxiety's building up inside
And the thought of losing is running strong again
And I pace and smoke and tell you

If its over its over
And that's not my problem
Its not all my fault
You fucked with my heart
If its over its over and that's not my problem

All these questions are building in my mind
And I'm wondering how this came around again
The intensity that surrounds my life
Has me asking if I'm doing right again
All the memories of me failing life
Just increase the drive to do it all again
And I pace and smoke and tell you

If it over it's over
And that's not my problem
It's not all my fault
You fucked with my heart
If it's over it's over
And that's not my problem
It's not all my fault
You fucked with my heart
If it's over its over
And that's not my problem

All the words that we say push us farther and farther away
All the statements we make put the pressures of life in our way
All the time that we spend making choices that
Stand in our way

If it's over it's over
And that's not my problem
It's not all my fault
You fucked with my heart
If it's over it's over
And that's not my problem
It's not all my fault
You fucked with my heart
If it's over it's over
And that's not my problem
It's not all my fault
You fucked with my heart

Hate Lyrics

Artist : RAINS
Album : Stories

It breaks my heart
To know the eyes you stare at me with aren't honest.
It breaks my heart
To know the words you speak to me aren't honest.
Can I ever truly forgive you?
Can I ever fully believe you?

Wear your disguise and I see right through.
I hate you.
You know I hate you.
Tell all your lies while I bleed right through.
I hate you.
I fucking hate you.

How can you tell me
You came to me faithfully?
How can you tell me
No it's not all true?
How can you look
In my eyes and tell lie after lie after lie
And make me a fool?
Can I ever truly forgive you?
Can I ever fully believe you?

Wear your disguise and I see right through.
I hate you.
You know I hate you.
Tell all your lies while I bleed right through.
I hate you.
I fucking hate you.

You break my heart
To know the eyes you stare at me with aren't honest.
You break my heart
To know the words you speak to me aren't honest.
Can I ever truly forgive you?
Can I ever fully believe you?

Wear your disguise and I see right through.
I hate you.
You know I hate you.
Tell all your lies while I bleed right through.
I hate you.
I fucking hate you.

You broke my heart.

Right Or Wrong Lyrics

Artist : RAINS
Album : Stories

Yes I'm scared.
And all the bad things that I've done
And this world I'm bringing you into
I hope I'm the one.
Now I may not have lived my life to show you what's wrong and right.
All I want to show you that life can be all

Right or wrong I'll get it right this time.
All along you'll know that you are mine.

Don't be scared it will all turn out just fine.
I'll protect you from everything in life
When you need to hide.
Now I may not have lived my life to show you what's wrong and right.
All I want to show you that life can be all

Right or wrong I'll get it right this time.
All along you'll know that you are mine.
Right or wrong I'll get it right this time.
Here or gone you'll know that you are mine.

Don't be scared now.
I'll protect you.
Live your life
I'll be there for you.

Right or wrong I'll get it right this time.
All along you'll know that you are mine, all mine.
Right or wrong I'll get it right this time.
All along you'll know that you are mine.
Right or wrong I'll get it right this time.
Here or gone you'll know that you are mine, all mine.

Hurricane Lyrics

Artist : RAINS
Album : Stories

I went for a walk the other day
I saw a man who didn't seem to have a
Reason to smile
After looking at his face I knew that
If I were him I couldn't turn my mouth up
I thought I'd give him some time so I sat down
Then he started to cry and said he is a
Old man with a young mans heart
You may be wondering how it gets this far
Open an ear boy let me tell you how it goes
It was a rainy night twelve years ago
I had a nice wife, three kids and a good home
I was waiting impatiently the phone rang
The voice was calm and he said
I'm sorry sir your family's gone
They're at a train track, the engine stalled
Nothing at all could be done to save them
Sorry again about this call cause you're a
Young man with an old mans heart
You may be wondering how it gets this hard
Don't you fear son this will pass before you know

Can you imagine
Everything you wanted
Everything you hoped for
Everything you needed
Can you imagine
It all just leaves you drowning
In pools of self destruction
I don't think you can

It wont hurt if you don't want it to
You can stand for your pride or
Lay down a die
Now son you've gotta keep in mind
All the tears
And the pain and the blame
And everything in between
And then you realize no one cares
And I said
Young man with an old mans heart
You may be wondering how it gets this hard
Don't you fear son this will pass before you know

Can you imagine
Everything you wanted
Everything you hoped for
Everything you needed
Can you imagine
It all just leaves you drowning
In pools of self destruction
I don't think you can

I went for a walk the other day
I saw a man who didn't seem to have a
Reason to smile

Have you ever heard of a hurricane
It takes your life and your breath away
Have you ever heard of a hurricane
It takes your life away

Fake Lyrics

Artist : RAINS
Album : Stories

All he wanted was a simple life he said
I can never be anything you wanted
I can never be anything you needed
All she wanted was a simple life she said
You can never be anything I wanted
You can never be anything I needed

Do we call this the end
It feels like I am waiting like an inmate
Hoping for my someday
Remember when we began
Life was like a new born baby breathing
Those were the ways of the days

So don't don't don't don't
Put us in a place we never wanted
Just don't make us fake
Don't don't don't
I kinda sorta like the way
We make each other think

All he told her were some simple lies he said
I only told you everything you wanted
Only told you everything you needed
All she heard were his simple lies she said
You never told me anything I wanted
Never told me anything I needed

Now we call this the end
It felt like I was waiting like an inmate
Now I've got my someday
Remember when we began
Life was life a new born baby breathing
Those were the ways of the days

So don't don't don't don't
Put us in a place we never wanted
Just don't make us fake
Don't don't don't
I kinda sorta like the way
We make each other think

If you could see the way I'd love to feel again
(Don't make us fake don't make us fake)
If we could make a way would you want to make amends
Do you feel this way

So don't don't don't don't
Put us in a place we never wanted
Just don't make us fake
Don't don't don't
I kinda sorta like the way
We make each other think

Wait Lyrics

Artist : RAINS
Album : Stories

Act as if no one sees your deception.
You know it will ruin you.
Turn a blind eye they're all misconceptions.
You take everyone for fools.
Try so hard but your fear of rejection means you're gonna be the one to lose.
If you convince yourself, just convince yourself.

[Chorus]
To wait for just a minute longer.
Hold off it will only make you stronger.
Wait for just a moment longer
We hold on walking towards the fire.

Act as if no one sees your true colors.
You think we're all under you.
Like a slap in the face
Your dishonesty gathers around us in full.
You try so hard but your fear of rejection
Means you're gonna be the one to lose.
If you convince yourself, just convince yourself.

[Chorus]
To wait for just a minute longer.
Hold off it will only make you stronger.
Wait for just a moment longer
We hold on walking towards the fire.

Wait for just a minute longer.
Hold off it will only make you stronger.
And wait for just a moment longer
We hold on walking towards the fire.

Wait for just a minute longer.
Hold off it will only make you stronger.
And wait for just a moment longer
We hold on walking towards the fire.

Something New Lyrics

Artist : RAINS
Album : Stories

You put yourself in to familiar moments.
You put yourself in a particular mind set.
You put yourself in to familiar places.
You get yourself ready to go now.
As if the same will meet all your expectations.
Why don't you try an open up your fears
To a world unwilling to let you hold them up?

[Chorus]
Why don't you try something new?
Why don't you let your hopes and dreams come back to you?
Back to you?

Everyone says to live for the moment.
Take a step back and live like you wanted.
Act like a child and live for today.
With free will, daydreams, and nothing on your shoulders.

[Chorus]
Why don't you try something new?
Why don't you let your hopes and dreams come back to you?
Why don't you try something new?
Why don't you let your hopes and dreams come back to you?
Back to you?

You put yourself in a familiar moment.
Put yourself in a particular mind set.
Why don't you try an open up your fears
To a world unwilling to let you hold them up?

[Chorus]
Why don't you try something new?
Why don't you let your hopes and dreams come back to you?
Why don't you try something new?
Why don't you let your hopes and dreams come back to you?
Back to you?

Sentimental Journey Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Sentimental Journey

Gonna take a sentimental journey,
Gonna set my heart at ease.
Gonna make a sentimental journey,
To renew old memories.

I've got my bag and got my reservation,
Spent each dime i could afford.
Like a child in wild anticipation,
Long to hear that "all aboard!"

Seven, (seven)
That's the time we leave,
At seven. (seven)
I'll be waiting out for heaven, (heaven)
Counting ev'ry mile of railroad track
That takes me back.

Never thought my heart could be so yearning,
Why did i decide to roam?
Got to take this sentimental journey,
Sentimental journey home.

I said at seven,
That's the time we leave,
At seven.
I'll be waiting out for heaven,
Counting ev'ry mile of railroad track
That takes me back.

I never thought my heart could be so yearning,
Why did i decide to roam?
Got to take this sentimental journey,
Sentimental journey home.
Sentimental journey home, let's go now,.
Sentimental journey home,
Sentimental journey home,
Sentimental journey home,
Sentimental journey home.

Maybe i'd better go by plane!

Night And Day Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Sentimental Journey

Night and day, you are the one,
Only you beneath the moon and under the sun.
Whether near to me or far,
It's no matter, darling, where you are, i think of you,
Night and day.

Day and night, why is it so,
That this longing for you follows wherever i go?
In the roaring traffic's boom,
In the silence of my lonely room, i think of you,
Night and day.

Night and day, under the hide of me,
There's, oh, such a hungry yearning
Burning inside of me.
And its torment won't be through
Till you let me spend my life making love to you,
Day and night, night and day.

And its torment won't be through
Till you let me spend my life making love to you,
Day and night, night and day.
Day and night, night and day.

Why do you whisper, green grass?
Why tell the trees what ain't so?
Whispering grass, the trees don't have to know,
No, no.

Why tell them all your secrets?
Who kissed there long ago?
Whispering grass, the trees don't need to know.

Don't you tell it to the breeze
'Cause they will tell the birds and bees
And ev'ryone will know
Because you told the blabbering trees.
Yes, you told them once before,
It's no secret any more.

Why tell them all the old things?
They're buried under the snow.
Whispering grass, don't tell the trees
'Cause the trees don't need to know.

Why tell them all the old things?
They're buried under the snow.
Whispering grass, don't tell the trees
'Cause the trees don't need to know.

Bye Bye Blackbird Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Sentimental Journey

Pack up all my cares and woes,
Here i go, singing low,
Bye, bye, blackbird.
Where somebody waits for me,
Sugar is sweet, so is she,
Bye, bye, blackbird.

No one here can love and understand me,
Oh, what hard luck stories they all hand me.

Make my bed and light the light,
I'll arrive late tonight,
Blackbird, bye, bye.

Pack up all my cares and woes,
Here i go, singing low,
Bye, bye, blackbird.
Where somebody waits for me,
Sugar is sweet, so is she,
Bye, bye, bye, bye, blackbird.

I said, no one here can love and understand me,
Oh, what hard luck stories they all hand me.

So, make my bed and light the light,
I'll arrive late tonight,
Blackbird, bye, bye.
Make my bed and light the light,
I'll arrive late tonight,
Blackbird,
I said blackbird,
I said blackbird,
Oh, blackbird, bye, bye.

I'm A Fool To Care Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Sentimental Journey

I'm a fool to care,
When you treat me this way.
I know i love you,
But what can i do?
I'm a fool to care.

I'm a fool to cry,
When you tell me goodbye.
You left me so blue,
When you were untrue,
I'm a fool to care.

I know i should laugh
And call it a day.
But i know i would cry
If you went away.

I'm a fool to care,
When you don't care for me.
So why should i pretend,
I lose in the end,
I'm a fool to care.

Brrr!

I'm a fool to care,
When you treat me this way.
I know i love you,
But what can i do?
I'm a fool to care.

Star Dust Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Sentimental Journey

Sometimes i wonder why i spend the lonely nights
Dreaming of a song,
The melody haunts my reverie
And i am once again with you,
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration.

But that was long ago,
Now my consolation
Is in the star dust of a song.

Beside a garden wall where stars are bright,
You are in my arms.
The nightingale tells his fairytale
Of paradise where roses grew.
Though i dream in vain,
In my heart it will remain,
My star dust melody,
The memory of loves refrain.

Aaahhh, hit me!

The nightingale tells his fairytale
Of paradise where roses grew.
Though i dream in vain,
In my heart it will remain,
My star dust melody,
The memory of loves refrain.

Blue, Turning Grey Over You Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Sentimental Journey

What will i do at sundown,
What will i do at dawn,
What will i do at noontime,
Now that i've found you gone?

What will i do for sunshine
With nothing but the rain?
How can i smile,
Find life worth while
With a heart that's filled with pain?

My, how i miss
Your tender kiss
And the wonderful things you would do.
I run my hands
Thru' sil'vry strands
'Cause i'm blue, turning grey over you.

Well, you used to be
So good to me,
That's when i was a novelty.
Now you have new thrills in view,
Found someone new,
Left me blue, turning grey over you.

I said, how can i smile,
Find life worth while
With a heart that's filled with pain?

You used to be
So good to me,
That's when i was a novelty.
Well, now you have found some new thrills to view,
And some new buddy friends and i don't know what to do.
Because i'm blue, turning grey over you.

Yeh, come on, hit me, daddy, hit me,
Let me hear it one time!
Oh yeah,

Ba-sa-sa-sa-sa-sa-sa-sa-so-so-so-so
Ba-sa-sa-sa-sa-dootsie-dootise-doo.

I just lost myself there, child, ha! Ha! Ha!

Love Is A Many Splendoured Thing Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Sentimental Journey

Love is a many splendoured thing,
It's the april rose that only grows
In the early spring.
Love is nature's way of giving
A reason to be living,
The golden crown that makes a man a king.

Once on a high and windy hill,
In the morning mist, two lovers kissed
And the world stood still.
Then your fingers touched my silent heart
And taught it how to sing,
Yes, true love's a many splendoured thing.

Once on a high and windy hill,
In the morning mist, two lovers kissed
And the world stood still.
Then your fingers touched my silent heart
And taught it how to sing,
Yes, true love's a many splendoured thing.

Dream Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Sentimental Journey

Dream, when you're feeling blue,
Dream, that's the thing to do.
Just watch the smoke rings rise in the air,
You'll find your share
Of memories there.

So dream, when the night is through,
Dream, and they might come true.
Things never are as bad as they seem,
So dream, dream, dream.

Dream, when you're feeling blue,
Dream, that's the thing to do.
Just watch the smoke rings rise in the air,
You'll find your share
Of memories there.

So dream, when the night is through,
Dream, and they might come true.
Things never are as bad as they seem,
So dream, dream, dream.

You Always Hurt The One You Love Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Sentimental Journey

Uh - doo-doo-doo
Uh - doo-doo-doo

You always hurt the one you love,
The one you shouldn't hurt at all.
You always take the sweetest rose
And crush it until the petals fall.
You always break the kindest heart
With a hasty word you can't recall.
So if i broke your heart last night
It's because i love you most of all.

You always break the kindest heart
With a hasty word you can't recall.
So if i broke your heart last night
It's because i love you most of all.
It's because i love you most of all.

Uh - doo-doo-doo
Uh - doo-doo-doo

Have i told you lately that i love you?

Let The Rest Of The World Go By Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Sentimental Journey

With someone like you,
A pal so good and true,
I'd like to leave it all behind and go and find
Some place that's known to god alone,
Just a spot to call our own.

We'll find perfect peace
Where joys never cease
Out there beneath the kindly sky.
We'll build a sweet little nest,
Somewhere in the west
And let the rest of the world go by.

(with someone like you,
A pal so good and true,
I'd like to leave it all behind and go and find)

Some place that's known to god alone,
Just a spot to call our own.

We'll find perfect peace
Where joys never cease
Out there beneath the kindly sky.
We'll build a sweet little nest,
Somewhere in the west
And let the rest of the world go by.
And let the rest of the world go by.

Beaucoups Of Blues Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Beaucoups Of Blues

I left louisian, i had me big plans
To go out and take me all over this land.
To see me the world, i left my sweet girl
And gave it a whirl but now here i stand,
Along side the road with holes in my soul and my shoes
And beaucoups of blues.

Oh, sweet magnolia,
Breath carried over the marsh by a breeze from the gulf.
I'm coming home, (coming home)
I've had me enough.

Oh, where are the things i saw in my dreams?
Where's the happy that freedom should bring?
I see me today and know yesterday
That i threw away my most precious things.
I see me a man who's lonely, wants only to lose
Beaucoups of blues.

Oh, sweet magnolia,
Breath carried over the marsh by a breeze from the gulf.
I'm coming home, (coming home)
I've had me enough.
I'm coming home, (coming home)
I've had me enough.

Love Don't Last Long Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Beaucoups Of Blues

Her mother wrote a letter,
Said she thought it would be better
If she would just stay gone.
She knew of her condition,
But she wouldn't give permission
For her to come back home.
So she called the boy who loved her
But all he did was snub her,
Said, "face it on your own."
Mm-mm, love don't last long.

A young man got unlucky
And got busted in kentucky,
Asked his dad to go his bail.
But his dad had big ambitions
With the local politicians,
Told his son to go to hell.
He hung himself that morning
And the note that they found on him
Said, "dad, please take me home."
Mm-mm, love don't last long.

A woman told her husband,
She lived ev'ry day to love him,
Nothing else fits in her plans.
Then without a warning,
He came home from work one morning,
Found her there with another man.
In a fit of anger
He took her life and the stranger's,
Then he took his own.
Mm-mm, love don't last long.

Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm,
Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm,
Mm, mm, mm, mm.

I brought her here from arkansas,
A simple country girl,
To try a californian way of life.
But it didn't take her long to learn
The ways of the modern world,
Now she's california's fastest moving wife.

She's working on it over time
And soon she'll finish me.
And the world's saddest man will live here in los angeles.
Of all the things she's ever done,
She's making this her best,
I got the fastest growing heartache in the west.

'Til we came here no man had ever
Touched her heart but me,
She'd never tasted any lips but mine.
But i know now, man have seen
What only i should see
Since her lips has tasted california wine.

She's working on it over time
And soon she'll finish me.
And the world's saddest man will live here in los angeles.
Of all the things she's ever done,
She's making this her best,
I got the fastest growing heartache in the west.

Without Her Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Beaucoups Of Blues

Softly i search my mem'rys
And hope i may find yesterday.
And just like her, my thoughts wander
And like her quietly slip away.
Love brings out the weakness in a man
And i'm so weak i just can't stand
To be without her,
Without her,
Without her.

There was a time she walked with me,
But yesterday comes only one time.
And i can see a tomorrow
With yesterday cling to my mind.
Time will take her memory they say,
But it gets harder ev'ry day,
To live without her,
Without her,
Without her.

Woman Of The Night Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Beaucoups Of Blues

Ev'ry night she's on the corner,
She's got her business in the street.
Her smile may make you think that you can own her,
But that smile's reserved for ev'ryone she sees.

Woman of the night, i've heard them call her,
But she's still a woman when morning comes around.
She walks through the market as a lady
And she's kinda nice to have around.

She's a woman of the night and i love her,
Altho' her love, my silver doesn't buy.
It's worth the rain to have a little sunshine
And you laugh much louder when you learn to cry.

I've seen them pay for her affection,
But when morning comes, no one calls her name.
She wakes to find no sign of appreciation,
Still she isn't wearing any shame.

She's a woman of the night and i love her,
Altho' her love, my silver doesn't buy.
It's worth the rain to have a little sunshine
And you laugh much louder when you learn to cry.

She's a woman of the night and i love her,
Altho' her love, my silver doesn't buy.
It's worth the rain to have a little sunshine
And you laugh much louder when you learn to cry.

She's a woman of the night and i love her,
Altho' her love, my silver doesn't buy.

I'd Be Talking All The Time Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Beaucoups Of Blues

If i talked about the good times,
There wouldn't be much to say,
For seldom happy mem'ries come to mind.
If i talked about the sleepless nights
You brought my way,
I'd be talking all the time.

For ev'ry dream that came my way,
A million passed me by.
I thought i couldn't be hurt more,
Then you said goodbye.

If talking now of other things,
Would get you off my mind,
I'd be talking all the time.

For ev'ry dream that came my way,
A million passed me by.
I thought i couldn't be hurt more,
Then you said goodbye.

If talking now of other things,
Would get you off my mind,
I'd be talking all the time.
Yeh, ringo'd be talking all the time.

$15 Draw Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Beaucoups Of Blues

Oooh...one, two...

Mama, i guess you have stood and cursed
The day i found that old guitar.
When uncle harry died,
The one we found in the boot of his old car.
I remember how my little fingers blistered
When i tried to learn to play,
I bet you never dreamed that old guitar
Would put me where i am today.

Yes, it's been a lot of years,
I guess it's been an interesting life.
No, mam, i never found another woman
That i wanted for a wife.
I guess the first time showed us
That i wasn't the domesticated kind,
But i don't blame her for getting tired
Of living from a suitcase all the time.

Yes, i know sometimes it looks
Like i've just simply thrown my life away.
I just always figured that if i hung on,
I'd make it big some day.
I guess it takes a special breed
To live this life and think the way i do,
But you'll be glad to hear that any more
I ain't near as bad to drink.

How is tommy doing with the business
Now that daddy's passed away?
I'm sure daddy always knew that tom
Would be the one to take his place.
And when he tried to lecture me,
I'd sit and pick and sing and let him nag,
But way down deep inside i think
He always knew that hardware ain't my bag.

We open monday night in bolton city
For another two week stand,
I wish there was some way that you and tom
Could come and hear my band.
Wish i had the time to tell you 'bout the
Places that i've been, the things i saw.
And i'll send the fifteen dollars soon
As i get to the club and make a draw.

When you're hot, you're hot there...
Ah, i mean, ah, when...what is...
When you're hot, you're hot, yeah, okay...
Mm-mm
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba!
All right.
Ho!

I've got my dog and he's real mean!

Wine, Women And Loud Happy Songs Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Beaucoups Of Blues

Look at me now, ain't i a sight?
Eyes bloody red, face puffy white.
Hair tangled up and wrinkled old clothes,
I'm a living example of a big overdose of:

Wine, women and loud happy songs,
I had all three but none lasted long.
The women ran off, i drank all the wine
And the songs died away when i ran out of dimes.

It's strange how the wine works on a fool,
It seeps through his mind, leaves him glued to the stool.
Women leave you wishing you'd just never been
But the songs makes you happy, soon you're searching again for:

Wine, women and loud happy songs,
I had all three but none lasted long.
The women ran off, i drank all the wine
And the songs died away when i ran out of dimes.

I Wouldn't Have You Any Other Way Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Beaucoups Of Blues

You're so diff'rent from anyone i've ever known
And to try to change you now, would be all wrong.
Sometimes i don't understand ev'rything you say,
But i wouldn't have you any other way.

I wouldn't want you if you weren't you,
And i'll admit, i don't understand half the things you do.
Sometimes i don't go along with things you say and do,
But i wouldn't have you any other way.

I wouldn't want you if you weren't you,
And i'll admit, i don't understand half the things you do.
Sometimes i don't go along with things you say and do,
But i wouldn't have you any other way.

Sometimes i don't go along with things you say and do,
But i wouldn't have you any other way.

Loser's Lounge Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Beaucoups Of Blues

There's a honky tonk in this town,
They call the loser's lounge,
And i guess i'm a charter member, you could say.
Since love has turned me down,
Nothing to do but hang around
And listen to all the fools who come to say.
That life is full of heartaches for a poor boy,
'Cause a bank roll can turn his woman's head around.
Ain't no use to try and run away or move to another town,
'Cause any where a poor boy goes there's a loser's lounge.

Had a real good friend named sam,
Said he just couldn't understand
Why in the world his sweet love let him down.
But a rich man caught her eye,
He had the money for things to buy.
Now there's a brand new member down at the loser's lounge.
Life is full of heartaches for a poor boy,
'Cause a bank roll can turn his woman's head around.
Ain't no use to try and run away or move to another town,
'Cause any where a poor boy goes there's a loser's lounge.

Oh yeah.

Waiting Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Beaucoups Of Blues

Time it goes
But it moves so slow when you're waiting.
And it's not much fun
When you let someone keep you waiting.
But you had me and you've still got me
Wond'ring what you'll do,
'Til you find your way back to me,
I'll be waiting for you.

Ev'ry day
Is yesterday when you're waiting.
And you dream a lot
That's all you got when you're waiting.
You had me and you've still got me
Wond'ring what you'll do,
'Til you find your way back to me,
I'll be waiting for you.

(waiting)
(waiting)

But you had me and you've still got me
Wond'ring what you'll do,
'Til you find your way back to me,
I'll be waiting for you.
(waiting) for you,
(waiting) for you,
(waiting) for you,
(waiting) for you.

Silent Homecoming Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Beaucoups Of Blues

Patiently she stares down the runway,
Today's the day that he is coming home.
Seems like he's been gone a life time
And a life time is a long time to be gone.
But there are songs that need singing,
And there are things that must be done.
There are thoughts that still need thinking,
And there are wars that must be won.

He was just a boy when they sent for him
And overnight turned him into a man.
Proudly he had served his country
In a war he didn't seem to understand.
The flag still waves, his war is over,
He'll never have to kill again.
And as she waits, she thinks it over,
Is winning worth the prize we pay to win?

Her thoughts keep wandering to his childhood,
When all his hand grenades were merely toys.
And "war" was just a game that he was playing
With plastic guns like other little boys.
And ev'ry day when play was over,
He'd put his little toys away.
And she'd be standing, waiting for him,
The way she's waiting here today.

As the plane stops she starts thinking,
Will he still look the way he did before?
Or will his eyes reflect the pain of killing,
Like most young men when they come home from war?
These last few minutes seem like hours,
She tries her best not to cry.
But there's that hearse filled up with flowers,
Did he really have to die?
No, no, no, no,
No, no, no, no, no,
No, no, no,
No, no,
No, no,
No, no, no,
No,
No, no, no,
No,
No, no, no, no, no.

I'm The Greatest Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR

When i was a little boy,
Way back home in liverpool,
My mama told me, i was great.

Then when i was a teenager,
I knew that i had got something going,
All my friends told me i was great.

And now i'm a man,
A woman took me by the hand,
And you know what she told me...i was great.

I was in the greatest show on earth,
For what it was worth.
Now i'm only thirty-two;
And all i wanna do, is boogaloo!

Hey!

I looked in the mirror,
I saw my wife and kids,
And you know what they told me...i was great.

Yes, my name is billy shears,
You know it has been for so many years.
Now i'm only thirty-two;
And all i wanna do, is boogaloo!

Hey, hey, hey, (hey, hey, hey) yeah!

I'm the greatest and you better believe it, baby!

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright,
Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright.

Have You Seen My Baby (Hold On) Lyrics

Artist : RINGO STARR
Album : Ringo

Have you seen my baby on the avenue?
You know she's driving me crazy
With the funny things she do.
I seen her with the milkman,
Ridin' down the street,
When you're through with my baby, milkman,
Send her home to me.

Hold on, hold on, hold on,
Hold on, hold on, hold on.
You know it's been so long
Since she has been gone,
Hold on, hold on, hold on.

I seen her with the gypsies, dancin' in the woods,
She's always been unfaithful to me,
She's never been good.
I said, "please, don't talk to strangers, baby."
But she always do.
She said, "i talk to strangers if i want to
'Cause i'm a stranger too."

Hold on, hold on, hold on,
Hold on, hold on, hold on.
You know it's been so long
Since she has been gone,
Hold on, hold on, hold on.

Alright!

Hold on, hold on, hold on,
Hold on, hold on, hold on.
You know it's been so long
Since she has been gone,
Hold on, hold on, hold on,
Hold on, hold on, hold on.

Bara-oompah-oompah-pah-pah!
