Christmas Memories

Original and similar lyrics
There's a blanket of snow coverin' up the old road to the house where I was raised Through the window I see the lights on the tree and a glow from the old fireplace Though it all looks the same so much has changed from the way it used to be Christmas memories of happy years gone by They come back to me and keep me warm inside Still those Christmas memories make me cry Now the stockings are filled; the house is still and the kids are dreamin' away There's that old easy chair, me and Daddy sat there waitin' for Santa's sleigh Now Daddy's gone but we carry on 'cause the little ones will need... Christmas memories of happy years gone by They come back to me and keep me warm inside Oh they mean so much to me Those Christmas memories make me cry

Years

Beth Nielsen Chapman "Beth Nielsen Chapman"
I went home for Christmas To the house that I grew up in Going back was something after all these years I drove down Monterey Street And felt a little sadness When I turned left on Laurel and the house appeared And I snuck up to that rocking chair Where the winter sunlight slanted on the screened-in porch And I stared out past the shade tree That my laughing daddy planted on the day that I was born CHORUS And I let time go by so slow And I made every moment last And I thought about years How they take so long And they go so fast Across the street the Randol's oldest daughter must have come home Her two boys built a snowman by the backyard swings I thought of old man Randol And his Christmas decorations And how he used to leave them up 'til early spring And I thought of all the summers That I paced that porch and swore I'd die of boredom there And I thought of what I'd give to feel another summer linger Where a day feels like a year CHORUS Then the door flew open, and my mother's voice was laughing As she called back to my daddy, Come and look who's here! And I thought about years

Don't stop to thank me I used to help you Conform to easy Still makes me happy Heart hollow to smooth Goes down to easy Be there to greet you I won't be happy what is this thing inside me? why does it never stop me? I don't know what your doing but keep talking pull me drag me under these dreams keep me from sleeping he'll always live inside me don't drag me under w/him You always left me thinking and I told you to stay don't always do what they tell you You need to break out from me go on go on go have a dream of your own now

Bug Zapper

AESOP ROCK "Cat Food"
[Verse 1:] The first step is a doozy, it's roulette with a mood ring The birth of an old slang, the death of a new speak A permanent post-game, a spitter with bridge trolls Skirting the copay, divvy the death toll Maneuverable codenames, alerted and mobile Familiar rising, and furnacing cold piles Resilient style kings, impossibly tantrum Wandering wild things, obelisk phantoms On linoleum or lava, leaders of a leadfoot fauna His left source blunt force trauma Not pillar of the commune, a splinter off the pagan Who vote off the elusiveness of truth and exultation From the point of view of students labeled putrid little aphids By the beautiful and cryogenic stasis Sadists, meanwhile makers of a hideous whatnot Committed to a lowdown Sisyphus up-rock Are shaving at a truck stop, aging exponentially Homie, no myth flowers grow where he piss And I still row boats outta bottles without abandon To shrink into the sunset bumping Pachelbel's Canon In D motherfucker, the author of the artistry May or may not be weeping to an automated pharmacy Hello. Hello? Shit [Hook:] Too geeked up to even keep it down Too peaced out to even be around Too beat up to even breathe it out (Too freaked out to even leave your house) [x5] [Verse 2:] You wish you could dance more, I wish you would talk less My gentleman transformed, to bringers of offed heads Moments of land war, my Lazarus species Tattered and bruised up, from back in the cheap seats Hackers on crew cuts, foam at the mush mouth Gag at the news truck, notably unsound Dragging his clown shoes, food on his moustache Raggedy hounds tooth, zilch on a bus pass I'm good, house at the beach of expelled hubcaps Black lawn, backyard melting into Lovecraft Bad yarn spun by the hum of the bug zapper Of kings becoming runners, and runts becoming alphas And underdogs with posters of a front-side Tony Alva On the sticker laden walls above their uncle's Bowie albums Graduate to flyers of an execrated sigil And live to see another sexy generation fizzle Out, keep rap homely Bear claw slippers, over-sized Billy Joel tee Fat-faced, potbelly, neckbeard, crow's feet Rat nest, gross teeth, pock marks, goatee I walk with Hawaii on the greenscreen behind me So even the awkward pauses feel inviting Standing at a landmark sleep drought keep out Can't talk now too freaked out [Hook]

Lonely And Gone

MONTGOMERY GENTRY
Pulled in the driveway, picked up the paper Found my key, and unlocked the door I walked in, felt like a stranger Like I'd never been there before As I wandered room to room It was silent as a tomb Could have heard a teardrop Could have heard a heartbreak Never saw the flood come Even though I felt the rain Never heard a house sound So loud with memories Where there used to be A happy home In the house on the corner Of Lonely and Gone If she talked about leaving, I wasn't listening If she showed me a sign, well I never saw Did she stop believing, did I stop giving Can't put my finger on what went wrong Now the quietest noise I'm told, is the sound of letting go Could have heard a teardrop Could have heard a heartbreak Never saw the flood come, even though I felt the rain Never heard a house sound, so loud with memories Where there used to be a happy home In the house on the corner Of Lonely and Gone Whoa...Never heard a house sound So loud with memories Where there used to be a happy home In the house on the corner In the house on the corner Of Lonely and Gone

Say Thank You

JILL SCOTT "Woman"
I used to be stuck I used to be stuck How ‘bout you? Inside a lie That you know ain’t near Near the absolute truth Feel it all in your membranes And deep in your tissue And you keep You keep ignoring the signs Listening to it happening to you again songs And put your alarm on Sleep Inviting new dumb shit And more loss of peacefulness Anybody Everybody can use a little help sometimes C’mon you know things ain’t moving right Ask for correction Ask for direction Ask for protection Since you want to feel like you’re you Inside Say thank you Yeah Say thank you Yeah Cause you know your request is filled You will see So act accordingly Live like you believe And say thank you Open Close Kneel Stand Hands In the air Head down Knees on ground And a silent whisper Out loud [ad libs] Somebody say thank you Hey! You hear that? Yeah! Hey! Thank you Thank you! I wish you would Just say Thank you Thank you It’s the only thing Thank you
