Standing In The Doorway

Original and similar lyrics
I can see you standing outside, See your shadow on the wall by a street lamp. I've got a manual instructing my brain. I turn around, cover eyes, I see you Standing in the doorway; Standing in the doorway I can see you. Standing in the doorway; Standing in the doorway I can see you. I can see you walking behind, See your face silhouetted in the half light. I've got a manual instructing my brain. I turn around, cover eyes, I see you Standing in the doorway; Standing in the doorway I can see you. Standing in the doorway; Standing in the doorway I can see you. I can feel your presence inside, Like a chill, like the point of a sharp knife. Instruction manual instructing my brain. I turn around, cover eyes, I see you Standing in the doorway; Standing in the doorway I can see you. Standing in the doorway Standing in the doorway Standing in the doorway Standing in the doorway Standing in the doorway Standing in the doorway Standing in the doorway Standing in the doorway

Standing In Your Doorway

CHRIS REA "Whatever Happened To Benny Santini?"
There'll be no moon tonight And the stars won' t light the sky There are women on the streets But there's no loving in their eyes Feeling weary, tired and wishing I was standing in your doorway now There'll be dancing flames Something better cooking slow, perfume heavy And all the lanterns turned down slow Oh that lucky, oh that lucky man Who's standing in your doorway now I'm a wandering man, you'll never tie me down Lifelong sailor, but how I wish I was homeward bound At this moment, tired and wishing I was standing at your doorway now

Stopping By

JASON ISBELL "Here We Rest"
Driving to a baseball game on a Friday afternoon Hotter than hell in Atlanta, Georgia. I guess it's been fifteen years since I came through here Probably should have called to warn you. But I'm stopping by. I'm stopping by, Daddy. How did your life turn out? Do you ever think about a teenage girl in Chattanooga? You ever tell your folks the truth? That might've been the last of you. Would've been a shame. We hardly knew ya. Now I'm stopping by. I'm stopping by, Daddy. I think the best of me's still standing in the doorway Counting cars and counting days and counting years I could say you made me go through life the hard way But it might've been worse if you were here. Looking through a picture book. There's one I think my momma took. You couldn't have been much over twenty. Shirtless in your cutoff jeans, you hand a lollipop to me. I probably asked where you got the money. A picture on another page. I recognize my eyes have aged. I'd been alone for quite a while then. Trying to get a match to burn. Waiting on a latch to turn. I still have difficulty smiling. But I'm stopping by. I'm stopping by, Daddy. I think the best of me's still standing in the doorway. Whatever's left is headed south on 85. Passing families on vacation headed your way. They look so happy and alive, and I'm stopping by, Daddy.

Standing 8

POWERMAN 5000 "Mega!! Kung Fu Radio"
Out on your feet standing 8, standing, 8 You can't look to me when you sealed your own fate It's one to four and you're half way there I can tell from your face your and blank stare That there ain't nothin' going on upstairs And the state that you're in is despair It ain't rare that your eyes are seeing double It's par time for the course 'cause you know you're in some trouble One - check the eyes for some vision Two - I seem to sense indecision Three - you're getting weak in the knees Four - crying please baby please Five - begins the loss of the brain cells Six, six, six - and you go to Hell Seven - you ain't looking so right Eight - it's too late that's the end of the fight Out on your feet standing 8, Standing 8 out on your feet standing 8 So what went wrong, you were so strong where's The flow in your show Must been something, but I don't know You fly like an eagle, but you die like a dove It seems to me that your name is mud Blood on the canvas painting a portrait A slice of life and the fact that you're unfit But you kept steppin' and gettin' your wreckin' It seems like awhile but it only took a second Was that right Was that the left Was it the jab Or was it this hook It's undisputed, but who did the damage Do you think you can manage Are you in or are you out Now there was a time when your mind was you mind It's a desperate state I find when you're holding up The peace sign your name to the contract to get Yourself some combat but won't that start bringing About decision You've got a choice, much due respect or beat into Submission...

Turn The Page

RUSH "Presto"
Nothing can survive in a vacuum No one can exists all alone We pretend things only happen to strangers We've all got problems of our own It's enough to learn to share our pleasures We can't soothe pain with sympathy All that we can do is be reminded We shake our heads at the tragedy Every day we're standing in a time capsule Racing down a river from the past Every day we're standing in a wind tunnel Facing down the future coming fast Looking at the long-range forecast Catching all the names in the news Checking out the state of the nation Learning the environmental blues Truth is after all a moving target Hairs to split, and pieces that don't fit How can anybody be enlightened? Truth is after all so poorly lit It's just the age It's just a stage We disengage We turn the page. Every day we're standing in a time capsule (It's just a stage) We disengage, we turn the page Racing down the river running fast Every day we're standing in a wind tunnel (It's just a stage) We disengage, we turn the page Facing down the future coming fast Repeat ¡¡

Borrowed Time

JOHNNY RIVERS "Borrowed Time"
You can run – but you can't hide You can cry – but it will not slide When the rain comes down It's gonna wash away all your lies And the sun's gonna shine at night You'll be awakened by an angel of light And the veil of sorrow will be lifted from your eyes Turn around, tell me what do you see Can that fool standing there be me If you look real close You can tell he's got his heart in his hand I guess he tried to fly too high Took off in a storm through an uncharted sky Shot down by a paper plane And had nowhere to land Hey – where are you going now? Your story's got no reason or rhyme Tell me – who can you turn to now That you're livin' on borrowed time So – called friends think I've lost my mind Can't believe what I've left behind Now that I've changed my number And I'm not runnin' scared Looks like the ones who have lost it all Are the ones who are standing tall Me, I'm turning to the one who always cared [Repeat chorus]
