Down On Longboat Key

Original and similar lyrics
She sits and stares out the window at the water Every night down at ....Cafe' All alone she sips her pina colada Talking to herself, dreaming time away The story is that a dark haired stranger Stole her heart many years ago He promised her he'd come back and take her Around the world, bring her hills of gold Chorus: Down on Longboat Key Where the island sand meet the Gulf Stream Bridge Down on Longboat Key She spends her life in a dream On Longboat Key Down on Longboat Key Down on Longboat Key. Each afternoon as the snugboats come in She runs to meet them down at the pier She sees the fishermen, the nets and the sunset But she don't see him, her eyes fill with tears She stands there looking at the crystal blue water And in the coral she imagines pearls She makes believe he brought them all the way from China Then the water swirls The blue-green water swirls Chorus: Down on Longboat Key Where the island sand meet the Gulf Stream breeze Down on Longboat Key She spends her life in a dream On Longboat Key Down on Longboat Key Down on Longboat Key. Young sailors make a play to take her home She says 'No, I'm already taken' Oh, they just laugh when she mentions his name She just keeps on waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting Chorus: Down on Longboat Key Where the island sand meet the Gulf Stream breeze Down on Longboat Key She spends her life in a dream On Longboat Key Down on Longboat Key Down on Longboat Key.

Dive In

Darius Danesh "Dive In"
So what's it all about? I can't work you out... There's a chemistry between us Getting hard to disguise - Still you're holding back, Some kind of panic attack - Treading water when you Really should be turning the tide... Don't spend a lifetime waiting, Don't tell me no - Just let go... If you want it, then you got it - Don't let this moment pass you by, Take a long shot, Give it all you got - You'll never know unless you try, You can only sink or swim, Baby, just dive in... So what's the worse thing That could be happening? (You test the water and you find that it's a little too hot) But I'm imagining, The taste of salt on your skin - Make your move, you gotta choose - Are you ready or not? Don't waste a lifetime waiting, You know its now - So turn around... Chorus Just dive in, just dive in... Let's dive in - Into the blue; Into the deep; Into the mood tonight Dive In... Chorus Come with me - Let's dive in...

No Regrets

AESOP ROCK "Labor Days"
Lucy was 7 and wore a head of blue barettes City born, into this world with no knowledge and no regrets Had a piece of yellow chalk with which she'd draw upon the street The many faces of the various locals that she would meet There was joshua, age 10 Bully of the block Who always took her milk money at the morning bus stop There was Mrs. Crabtree, and her poodle She always gave a wave and holler on her weekly trip down to the bingo parlor And she drew Men, women, kids, sunsets, clouds And she drew Skyscrapers, fruit stands, cities, towns Always said hello to passers-by They'd ask her why she passed her time Attachin lines to concrete But she would only smile Now all the other children living in or near her building Ran around like tyrants, soaking up the open fire hydrants They would say Hey little Lucy, wanna come jump double dutch? Lucy would pause, look, grin and say I'm busy, thank you much Well, well, one year passed And believe it or not She covered every last inch of the entire sidewalk, And she stopped- Lucy, after all this, you're just giving in today?? She said: I'm not giving in, I'm finished, and walked away (Chorus: x2) 1 2 3 That's the speed of the seed A B C That's the speed of the need You can dream a little dream Or you can live a little dream I'd rather live it Cuz dreamers always chase But never get it Now Lucy was 37, and introverted somewhat Basement apartment in the same building she grew up in She traded in her blue barettes for long locks held up with a clip Traded in her yellow chalk for charcoal sticks And she drew Little bobby who would come to sweep the porch And she drew The mailman, delivered everyday at 4 Lucy had very little contact with the folks outside her cubicle day But she found it suitable, and she liked it that way She had a man now: Rico, similar, hermit They would only see each other once or twice a week on purpose They appreciated space and Rico was an artist too So they'd connect on saturdays to share the pictures that they drew (Look!) Now every month or so, she'd get a knock upon the front door Just one of the neighbors, Actin nice, although she was a strange girl, really Say, Lucy, wanna join me for some lunch?? Lucy would smile and say I'm busy, thank you much And they would make a weird face the second the door shut And run and tell their friends how truly crazy Lucy was And lucy knew what people thought but didn't care Cuz while they spread their rumors through the street She'd paint another masterpiece (Chorus x2) Lucy was 87, upon her death bed At the senior home, where she had previously checked in Traded in the locks and clips for a head rest Traded in the charcoal sticks for arthritis, it had to happen And she drew no more, just sat and watched the dawn Had a television in the room that she'd never turned on Lucy pinned up a life worth's of pictures on the wall And sat and smiled, looked each one over, just to laugh at it all No Rico, he had passed, 'bout 5 years back So the visiting hours pulled in a big flock o' nothin She'd never spoken once throughout the spanning of her life Until the day she leaned forward, grinned and pulled the nurse aside And she said: Look, I've never had a dream in my life Because a dream is what you wanna do, but still haven't pursued I knew what I wanted and did it till it was done So i've been the dream that I wanted to be since day one! Well! The nurse jumped back, She'd never heard Lucy even talk, 'Specially words like that She walked over to the door, and pulled it closed behind Then Lucy blew a kiss to each one of her pictures And she died. (Chorus x2) 1 2 3... A B C...

Unwed Fathers

JOHN PRINE "Aimless Love"
In an Appalachian, Greyhound station She sits there waiting, in a family way Goodbye brother, Tell Mom I love her Tell all the others, I'll write someday Chorus: From an teenage lover, to an unwed mother Kept undercover, like some bad dream While unwed fathers, they can't be bothered They run like water, through a mountain stream In a cold and gray town, a nurse say's Lay down 'This ain't no playground, and this ain't home' Someone's children, out having children In a gray stone building, all alone On somewhere else bound, Smokey Mountain Greyhound She bows her head down, hummin' lullabies 'Your daddy never, meant to hurt you ever' 'He just don't live here, but you've got his eyes' Repeat Chorus: Well, they run like water, Through a mountain stream

Fountain Of Life

Incognito "Beneath The Surface"
(J.P. Maunick) Chase the sunrise, people come together Feel the glory of the new day Feed the feeling, gather friends and strangers Come together make it stay this way Chorus: Looking for the fountain of love We fell into a cool paradise (He yeah hey yeah) The rythm of the sand and the sea Is where we've always wanted to be I've been looking (Looking for the fountain of love) Searching (Fell into the cool paradise) I've been in search of paradise (The rythm of the sand and the sea) Sand and sea (Where we've always wanted to be) Wanted Always, wanted Always searching for a new direction Your heart desires a better state of mind Mother nature will provide the feeling In the sunshine, happiness you'll find Chorus We've been holding on Waiting for this day to come our way Holding on We've been holding on Waiting for the light to shine our way (Holding on) Always waiting Sayin' (free me, free me, free me) Chorus

January, I fell to the cobblestone In April, I cut little paper flowers In August, I drank cold tea all my lonesome In October, I was introduced as coward I love New York Saturdays But Mondays last longer And since I plan to live a long life Maybe I'll serve a thousand Mondays and swallow the burn To merge the week for all its got To get my shoddy rotten ribs stick, forgot my ribs I got a lil' something called a spirit crisis on my skull And it's nothing short of ferocious but I swallowed the dosage I got a mantle, and the mantle is a candle And my candle is a flame that burns to symbolize the day Gretel met Hansel Then I settle in a stand still I live forever reaching for the sun Hoping some lucky day I'll clutch and get a hand full Rope ladder, I'ma swing in ample And I wanna turn scullies and summings with pretty lullabye, bye The way my gypsy dances makes a monster retreat to fetal I never felt so damn young But you don't look a day over zero And you don't look a day in the times cuz it'll make you realize The night is near so Well then go, dream, I clean around the edges I tidy up the tabletop, and lectured all the pledges I never really knew the true definition of precious Till my angel wit the beautiful red locks gave it a message I'm a fully animated life tree See the root of the mute button was dug up bug up on a song Of I'm a fully animated life tree With branches for the heavens to admire actually Chorus [Woman speaking] Fame, war, love, honor, crime, innocence, tragedy, sunshine Cringe, death, passion, heroism, God, suffering, joy, fate Destiny, treasure, stars, gall, hunger, murder, silence, mayhem Health, pain, suspense, breath, sound, guilt, pride, time We all know what a halo is But we all don't know the horrors if your halo tips I be the ?manadome? making your pretty little heels click I be the Sword in the Stone of the contemporary eclipse I'm incredibly exhausted You can't imagine, got my warm spirit stuck in my teeth, I'm obsolete Freedom freedom freedom fighter beginning Better stay competitive, meter in such to bust, fuckin fantastic Every little steps you take breaks the chamber In the chest, developed in the abomidable trouble Settle for a cruel second, loud for an hour Screamin to the beats to leave until my whole weekend turns sour I ain't been around the world but I been around the block I ain't seen everything but I seen enough to talk I ain't a prophet, I ain't the Second Coming of Christ I'm just a mason with a will to build and a little advice I wanna weeble well, I wanna set of knitting needles Villain with a theme dream silent Paddle in the hole divy to where the portraits astonish You won't regret a single solitary step, I promise Look, in a situation where a dragon guards the gate I make a true spur of the moment grown decision Which in turn allows me to be something normal With the prefix of the abbot I can kill every monster if I got it, that's that Rockin it, rockin it, clippership rockin it Be the little guinea pig, dig?
