It Works

Original and similar lyrics
He rattles his glass, she jumps up fast And pours him a glass of tea Deep in her heart she believes That's the way it should be Yeah, and I've seen my dad get fightin' mad Over one little four-letter word He'll tell you fast you don't talk like that around her We may not see it the way they see it We may not do it the way they do it But she lives here life for him And he'd gladly die for her And even in this modern age, it works Though he's been down in his back He still jumps out of that sack Ev'ry mornin' at 5 a.m. Having her home With the kids has been worth it to him Yeah, and she takes pride in bein' his wife And making their house a home And sometimes she wishes the world Would just leave them alone We may not see it the way they see it We may not do it the way they do it But she lives here life for him And he'd gladly die for her And even in this modern age, it works If the good Lord's willin' there will come a day When our children will say We may not see it the way they see it We may not do it the way they do it But she lives here life for him And he'd gladly die for her And even in this modern age, it works Even in this modern age, it works...

The Cleaner

AIDEN GRIMSHAW
Every piece of silence holds a thousand thoughts Interactive violence of the mental sort Something on your mind? Then close the door I know you missed the warning signs, I've seen you cry before Funny how it goes around and comes around again Just because we're talking, doesn't mean that we are friends When you say there's nothing left, you try and grab my hand If you wanna fuck with me, at least take me to bed [Chorus:] We thought we'd cope [?] upon your bones Everybody knows Modern life, your modern love is Only sticks and stones, oh I have a lot of love but you never have enough I could be chasing fairytales This modern love is not enough for me Every single smile tells a thousand tales Better wipe the lies under your fingernails Cabled to the wall, I know you're plugged in It's how you get the feeling running through your skin Ask me if I care cause this has gone on far too long I gave you all my thoughts of you, you must've read them wrong It's funny how you think that everything will be alright But ever since you fucked me, well, I want you out my life [Chorus]

Take The Fall

BRENDAN JAMES "The Day Is Brave"
Forget about Norman 'small town' Rockwell Scenes of simple life Forget about savings and poignant phrasings, Cigarettes and schoolyard fights Let us out now Lord of our speed and fancy Of our 'can you hear me now''s And our techno loves Drop us off on 55th and keep us reading Vonnegut Point out now what we're careless of My chance in life is worth letting go Of all the trends they're setting so forgive me If I'm so ordinary with Extraordinary reasons to live It's just like a boy to save his Honor and his money It's just like a girl to feel It's just like a child to stand And interrupt us all And say I'll gladly take the fall for you Now love, love, love, yes It's all you need John and Paul, Ringo, George profess If I've got love I can feel I can remember every meal But like a gift it can be taken all away My chance in life is worth letting go Of all the trends they're setting so forgive me If I'm so ordinary with Extraordinary reasons to live It's just like a boy to save his Honor and his money It's just like a girl to feel It's just like a child to stand And interrupt us all And say I'll gladly take the fall for you I'll gladly take the fall for you

Pony Street

ELVIS COSTELLO "Brutal Youth"
She lives on Pony Street And they should scatter flowers at her feet But when they come calling I think it's appalling They're sober and they're polite They're deeply respectful when I would expect them To keep her out all night That little martinet Will get her own way yet If you need instruction in mindless destruction I'll show you a thing or two You used to adore me but now my life flashes before me For you to view Oh mother, oh mother, sometimes you are so mortifying From the hole in your leopard skin tights I can tell you've been spying But your generation confesses before it transgresses Those Super-8 movies of daddy in your disco dresses If you're going out tonight I won't wait up Reading Das Kapital Watching Home Shopping Club While you're flogging a dead horse All the way down Pony Street Where you live after a fashion All the way down Pony Street The life and the soul of every indiscretion That lives on, that lives on, that lives on Pony Street Daughter, oh daughter, you know I will love you forever But spare me the white ankle socks with the lace and the leather For you and your cartoon threat do no good to resist me For I am the genuine thing but for you it's just history If you're going out tonight How can you be sure Where you lay your pretty head Mother may have been before So you're flogging a dead horse All the way down Pony Street Where you live after a fashion All the way down Pony Street The life and the soul of every indiscretion That lives on [5x] She lives on Pony Street [2x] She lives on, she lives on [2x]

Days Of Our Lives

JAMES OTTO "Days Of Our Lives"
Well, I left for work in a hurry. I rushed out the door without sayin' goodbye. I didn't tell her I loved her this mornin', But I'll tell her tonight, I thought to myself. An' as I hurried off t'wards the highway, This truck, outta nowhere, caught me by surprise. He missed me by inches, an' my life passed in front of my eyes. I guess that's the reason that they say: Dance every dance an' live each day, As though it's your last, An' tell those that you love how you feel, Before it's too late. Life is right here and now, We only go around just one time. So embrace 'em, don't waste 'em, For these are the days of our lives. Well as soon as my legs stopped a-shakin', Took a deep breathe an' turned my car around. Oh, I'm gonna take that vacation, That we talked about, startin' right now. Although I know tomorrow will be here, Tomorrow may not always be here for me. 'Cause nothin' in life is for certain but death's guaranteed. And that's the reason that I say: Dance every dance an' live each day, As though it's your last, An' tell those that you love how you feel, Before it's too late. Life is right here and now, We only go around just one time. So embrace 'em, don't waste 'em, For these are the days of our lives. [Instrumental break] Yeah, life is right here and now, We only go around just one time. So embrace 'em, don't waste 'em, For these are the days of our lives. Oh, embrace 'em, don't waste 'em, For these are the days of our lives. Yeah

I've Seen Him Do It

KURT CARR "Bless This House"
[Spoken Intro:] For someone facing incredible obstacles in your life: I want you to lean on God and trust his flawless record. He never fails; he can do the impossible. How do I know? I've seen him do it! [Verse 1:] I have no doubt my God can do the impossible. I know he can; I've seen him do it. He can turn the mess you're in to an awesome miracle. I know he can; I've seen him do it. Whatever problem you've got, If you just give it to God, he'll work it out. How do I know? [Chorus:] I've seen him do it. I've seen him do it. [x4] [Verse 2:] When your life has gone astray, He'll preserve and cover you with his grace That's how God works; I've seen him do it. And he'll erase your past, So people can never dangle it in your face. That's how God works; I've seen him do it. When you need a miracle, he's more than capable. How do I know? How do I know? [Bridge:] God never fails, My God never fails. [x2] I've seen him... I've seen him do it... I've seen him do it. [x2] [worship leader ad lib] Yes... I've seen him do it. [x2] I've seen him do it.
