AARON LEWIS lyrics - Town Line

Country Boy

Original and similar lyrics
Well I grew up down an old dirt road in a town you wouldn't know My pops picked the place up for 1500 bucks back in 1964 My grandfather was a drinker back in the day he put 'em down But a war is known to change a man and the whiskey is known to change a man But, that's not me I rarely drink from the bottle but I smoke a little weed I still live in the sticks where you wouldn't go In a town of 1200 off an old dirt road And a country boy is all I'll ever be Now it's been 12 years since I sold my soul to the devil in L.A. He said "sign your name here on the dotted line and your songs they all will play" He set up shop on sunset, he put me up at the marquee He said "you wanna sell a million records boy you better listen to me" He said "change your style, whiten your smile, you could lose a couple of pounds And if you want to live this life, you better lose that wife, do you need your friends around?" I said, no that's not me Cause the biggest things in life are your friends and family And I like my jeans and my old t-shirts And a couple extra pounds never really hurt Cause a country boy is all I'll ever be Cause Hank taught me just how to stay alive You'll never catch me out the house without my 9 or 45 I got a big orange tractor and a diesel truck And my idea of heaven is chasing whitetail bucks And as a country boy you know I can survive Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I feel One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue The other ones got a rattlesnake with a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave Because, this is me I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs And I've said it before but I'll say it again Cause I've never needed government to hold my hand And I've said it before but I'll say it again Cause my family has always fought and died to save this land And a country boy is all I'll ever be I love my country, I love my guns, I love my family I love the way it is now, and anybody that tries to change it Has to come through me, that should be all our attitudes 'cause this is America and a country boy is good enough for me son

Murder Of One

COUNTING CROWS "August And Everything After"
Blue morning Blue morning Wrapped in strands of fist and bone Curiosity, Kitten, Doesn't have to mean you're on your own You can look outside your window He doesn't have to know We can talk awhile, baby We can take it nice and slow All your life is such a shame, shame, shame All your love is just a dream, dream, dream Are you happy when you're sleeping Does he keep you safe and warm Does he tell you when you're sorry Does he tell you when you're wrong I've been watching you for hours It's been years since we were born We were perfect when we started I've been wondering where we've gone All your life is such a shame All your love is just a dream I dreamt I saw you walking up a hillside in the snow Casting shadows on the winter sky as you stood there counting crows One for sorrow Two for joy Three for girls and four for boys Five for silver Six for gold and Seven for a secret never to be told There's a bird that nests inside you Sleeping underneath your skin When you open up your wings to speak I wish you'd let me in All your life is such a shame All your love is just a dream Open up your eyes You can see the flames of your wasted life You should be ashamed You don't want to waste your life I walk along these hillsides In the summer 'neath the sunshine I am feathered by the moonlight falling down on me Change, change, change

The Graveyard Near The House

The other day when we were walking by the graveyard near the house you asked me if I thought, we would ever die. And if life and love both fade so predictably, we've made ourselves a kind of predictable lie. So I pictured us like corpses lying side by side in pieces in some dark and lonely plot under a bough. We looked so silly there all decomposed, half turned to dust in tattered clothes, though we probably look just as silly now. Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye all this dog-eared innocence. I can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next or how to be. But you have no idea about me. Do you? And it left me to wonder if people ever know each other or just stumble around like strangers in the dark. Cause sometimes you seem so strange to me, I must seem strange to you. We're like two actors playing our parts. Did you memorize your lines? 'Cause I did. Here's the part where I get so mad. I tell you that I can't forget the past. You get so quiet now and you seem somehow like a lost and lonely child and you just hope that the moment won't last. Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye all this dog-eared innocence I can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next or how to be. But you have no idea about me. You have no idea about me. Do you? Still, there's always a way around. There's something tying our feet to the ground. A moment passed, we hear how it sounds. And it seems a little less profound, like we're all going the same way down. Yeah we're all going the same way down. I'm just trying to write it all down. Cause I write songs, and you write letters. We are tied like two in tethers, and we talk and read and laugh and sleep at night in bed together. And you wake in tears sometimes, I can see the thoughts flash across your eyes. They say, "Darling will you be kind? Will you be a good man and stay behind if I get old?" Then the letters all pass through my head, with the words that I was told about the fading flesh of life and love, the failures of the bold. I can list each crippling fear like I'm reading from a will. And I'll defy every one and love you still. I will carry you with me up every hill. And if you die before I die, I'll carve your name out of the sky. I'll fall asleep with your memory and dream of where you lie. It may be better to move on and to let life just carry on and I may be wrong. Still I'll try. Cause it's better to love whether you win or lose or die. It's better to love whether you win or lose or die. It's better to love and I will love you until I die.

Love Yourz

J. COLE "2014 Forest Hills Drive"
Love yours Love yours [Hook:] No such thing as a life that's better than yours No such thing as a life that's better than yours No such thing as a life that's better than yours No such thing, no such thing Heart beatin' fast, let a nigga know that he alive Fake niggas mad, snakes Snakes in the grass let a nigga know that he arrive Don't be sleepin' on your level cause its beauty in the struggle nigga Goes for all y'all It's beauty in the struggle nigga (Let me explain) It's beauty in the struggle , ugliness in the success Hear my words or listen to my signal of distress I grew up in the city and though some times we had less Compared to some of my niggas down the block man we were blessed And life can't be no fairytale, no once upon a time But I be God damned if a nigga don't be tryin' So tell me mama please why you be drinking all the time? Does all the pain he brought you still linger in your mind? Cause pain still lingers on mine On the road to riches listen this is what you'll find The good news is nigga you came a long way The bad news is nigga you went the wrong way Think being broke was better [Hook] For what's money without happiness? Or hard times without the people you love Though I'm not sure what's 'bout to happen next I asked for strength from the Lord up above Cause I've been strong so far But I can feel my grip loosening Quick, do something before you lose it for good Get it back and use it for good And touch the people how you did like before I'm tired of living with demons cause they always inviting more Think being broke was better Now I don't mean that phrase with no disrespect To all my niggas out there living in debt Cashing minimal checks Turn on the TV see a nigga Rolex And fantasize about a life with no stress I mean this shit sincerely And that's a nigga who was once in your shoes Living with nothin' to lose I hope one day you hear me Always gon' be a bigger house somewhere, but nigga feel me Long as the people in that motherfucker love you dearly Always gon' be a whip that's better than the the one you got Always gon' be some clothes that's fresher than the ones you rock Always gon' be a bitch that's badder out there on the tours But you ain't never gon' be happy till you love yours [Hook] Heart beatin' fast, let a nigga know that he alive Fake niggas mad, snakes Snakes in the grass let a nigga know that he arrive


ATMOSPHERE "SouthSiders"
I highly doubt that y'all think about sex Anywhere near as often as I think about death Go ahead and shout at the top of your lungs But don't wake the baby up, we got a lot to get done That little light indicates a connection And if it's all the same I'd like to make a suggestion See, if everybody on this comet agreed We could set the clock to whenever we want it to be I just might just modify the mileage I don't know much, but I'm confident the fight's fixed So high that I feel like a pilot Falling out the sky full of brilliant brightness Hurry up, stir me up You gotta learn the words before the whole Earth burning, but We wouldn't even need to recognize your birthday If you were the center of the universe in the first place If I had feathers I would fly away If I felt fresher in fur I would hibernate If I ever figured out how to communicate Maybe then we could accumulate For now face the wall, I ain't the same as y'all A real friend wouldn't make you take the fall Sometimes life'll try to break your balls With the long list of missed wakeup calls You know I wanna feel special Walk around the festival carrying a big stuffed animal I try not to make a mess though Gotta stay sensible, ain't nobody coming with the antidote I wanna watch you grow And I wanna leave the planet better off than it was handed to me And I don't know, there's possibility So I settle for selling my soul to the slaves of the land of the free I don't wanna leave my family tree behind I don't anyone to miss me like I miss you But I don't wanna take up too much time I'm not trying to run away from the line we drew The sunshine seems to feel so seamless The soldier is a dreamer and a realist And history sealed this Thought me that a hero ain't nothing but a field trip Nah, I know you're down to do something profound Put a stick in the ground to prove you was around No amount of time will ever be considered enough I'm trying to tether it up and live forever through love We're not lucky, but we're fortunate I'm pretty sure of it And all the life we wasted trying to make some bread Might've been better spent trying to raise the dead


JAY-Z "Reasonable Doubt"
This shit is wicked on these mean streets None of my friends speak We're all trying to win, but then again Maybe it's for the best though, 'cause when they're seeing too much You know they're trying to get you touched Whoever said illegal was the easy way out couldn't understand the mechanics And the workings of the underworld, granted Nine to five is how to survive, I ain't trying to survive I'm trying to live it to the limit and love it a lot Life ills, poison my body I used to say 'fuck mic skills,' and never prayed to God, I prayed to Gotti That's right it's wicked, that's life I live it Ain't asking for forgiveness for my sins, endz I break bread with the late heads, picking their brains for angles on all the evils that the game'll do It gets dangerous, money and power is changing us And now we're lethal, infected with D'Evils... We used to fight for building blocks Now we fight for blocks with buildings that make a killing The closest of friends when we first started But grew apart as the money grew, and soon grew black-hearted Thinking back when we first learned to use rubbers He never learned so in turn I'm kidnapping his baby's mother My hand around her collar, feeding her cheese She said the taste of dollars was shitty so I fed her fifties About his whereabouts I wasn't convinced So I kept feeding her money 'til her shit started to make sense Who could ever forsee, we used to stay up all night at slumber parties now I'm trying to rock this bitch to sleep All the years we were real close Now I see his fears through her tears, know she's wishing we were still close Don't cry, it is the (beat) In time, I'll take away your miseries and make 'em mine, D'Evils... My flesh, no nigga could test My soul is possessed by D'Evils in the form of diamonds and lexuses The exorcist, got me doing skits like Homie You don't know me, but the whole world owe me Strip! Was thought to be a pleasant guy all my fucking life So now I'm down for whatever, ain't nothing nice Throughout my junior high years it was all friendly But now this higher learning got the Remy in me Liquors invaded my kidneys Got me ready to lick off, mama forgive me I can't be held accountable, D'Evils beating me down, boo Got me running with guys, making G's, telling lies that sound true Come test me, I never cower For the love of money, son, I'm giving lead showers Stop screaming, you know the demon said it's best to die And even if Jehovah witness, bet he'll never testify, D'Evils...
