Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)

Original and similar lyrics
Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day, Out in the yard with your wife and children Or workin on some stage in LA Did you stand there in shock At the sight of that black smoke risin' against that blue sky Did you shout out in anger and fear for your neighbor Or did you just sit down and cry Did you weep for the children who lost their dear loved ones Pray for the ones who don't know Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble And sob for the ones left below Did you burst out in pride for the red white and blue And the heros who died just doin what they do Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer And look at yourself and what really matters *Chorus* I'm just a singer of simple songs I'm not a real political man I watch CNN but im not sure i can tell you The difference in Iraq and Iran I know Jesus and i talk to god And i remember this from when i was young Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us And the greatest is love Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day Teachin' a class full of innocent children Driving down some cold interstate Did you feel guilty cause you were a survivor In a crowded room did you feel alone Did you call up your mother and tell her you love her Did you dust off that bible at home Did you open your eyes and hope it never happened Close your eyes and not go to sleep Did you notice the sunset for the first time in ages Speak to some stranger on the street Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow Go out an buy you a gun Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watchin' And turn on 'I Love Lucy' re-runs Did you go to church and hold hands with some stangers Stand in line and give your own blood Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family Thank god you had somebody to love *Chorus* *Chorus* And the greatest is love And the greatest is love Where were you when the world stoped turning, that September day

Muhammad Ali

FAITHLESS "Outrospective"
If all you keep hearing it so long you will see me as a super star And you'll have time to waste with your minions and tink I see your face in front of me, Still grainy from that old black and white TV My whole family silenced, Watching you shape destiny with your 2 hands, Faster than the eye can see. Mesmerizing You know what skinny little me started to struggle, 10 years old suddenly bold Cause I resolved to live like my hero in the ring, Be smart never give an inch, No retreat when I'm wrapped up Respect from teachers, Red Necks And creatures who attack in a pack Like incensed never seen the light not before or Since a young prince And I remain convinced of his invincibility Athletic agility, virility, Seen your free spirit for every through eternity stings Like a bee Mr Muhammed Ali I want to know who you are! I want to know who you are! I want to know who you are! Your achievements defy belief from the belly of the beast Rising like yeast, My release from low self esteem Came when I saw you rapping on my TV screen. Float like a butterfly, That describes my walk to school after fight night I felt so cool cause I was at place too, Love myself born slippy Outta love for you, And I knew that someday people would love me too. None of that heckling about my black skin got through, I would walk bare foot through hell for you, It was how I felt back then I would still do for you, So accept these humble words of praise, And my gratitude for those glorious days And your victorious ways, Instilled in the young minds, Skill sublime yours to mine! I want to know who you are! I want to know who you are! I want to know who you are!

You Know Me Better Than That

GEORGE STRAIT "Chill Of An Early Fall"
Baby since you left me I've found someone new She thinks I'm perfect I swear SHe likes my body, my class, and my charm She says I've got a confident air She respects my ambition, thinks I'm talented too But she's in love with an image time is bound to see through Chorus: You know me better than that You know the me that gets lazy an fat How moody I can be All my insecurities You've seen me lose all my charm You know I was raised on a farm Oh she tells her I'm perfect And that I love her cat But you know me better than that I miss picnics and blue jeans and buckets of beer Now it's ballet and symphony hall I'm in culture clean up to my ears It's like wearn' a shoe that's too small Oh I caught her with an issue of brides magazine Starin' at dresses and pickin' out rings Repeat Chorus Oh she tells her friends I'm perfect And that I love that cat Oh, but you know me better than that

The Day We Find Love

911 "The Journey"
Isn't the first time, won't be the last time Don't you worry, I don't mean to make you sad My tears will soon be over With your conscience clear for a new life ahead Don't be sorry, I really need to hear the truth The only thing I'm asking, 'cause I need you to Remember me as the only one who sets you free Maybe time alone will make you see How deep our love could be No, it's never too late Chorus: 'Cause I know this isn't the first time Won't be the last time I surrender my soul 'cause you're always Keeping me waiting, Anticipating the day we find love once again I won't give up while there's a glimmer of a chance A dream that's never ending Inviting love and a perfect romance A burning passion, oh, baby, you're my destiny But the message I'm receiving is you're through with me But I'll be there even though you tell me you don't care, no, no How could you forget the times we shared Don't throw our love away You know it's never too late Repeat Chorus Ooh, remember me as the only one who sets you free Maybe time alone will make you see how deep our love could be No, it's never too late, no, no, no, no Repeat Chorus to fade

Road To Perdition

JAY ELECTRONICA
[Ronald Reagan:] "And they say if we'll only avoid any direct confrontation with the enemy, he'll forget his evil ways and learn to love us. All who oppose them are indicted as warmongers. They say we offer simple answers to complex problems. Well, perhaps there is a simple answer—not an easy answer—but simple" I got that black on black skin tone, actual-fact syndrome That's why I dropped the jewel on every verse you heard me shit on Okay, it's a Slumdog opera The tale of a king whose name wasn't on the roster My road to glory was Road To Perdition And Act II: The Turn is just the memoirs with no omissions We came a mighty long way from standing near the stove In the cold, the greatest story ever told The realest niggas see the pain in my story boards The true believers say, "Wallahi, I support the boy" My life feel like a highlight reel This is lightning striking, feel how the Zeitgeist feel Get a slight chill [Bridge - Jay Z:] I got these niggas, Breezy! Don't worry about it My swag is on 1.21 gigawatts, 10 trillion kilowatts Hardcore Thriller pop, Michael Jackson, nigga rock Google me, baby, understand where I'm coming from My destiny's to hit a grand slam when my number come All hail the lyrical, Grand Wizard Imperial Nigga signed the dotted line with Hov, that's a miracle And I ain't leave the thugs alone The humble in me will surely inherit the mud we on And shoot up every club we clone The flow is too atomic The poetry's too Qu'ran-ic, the young prophet Muhammad And I could drop a verse to change the whole vibration The whole Roc Nation, the whole Live Nation So pour libation Beware, but prepare for the polarization, it's the globalization Warn all the clergymen and notify Satan I been waiting, this the notarization, I been patient [Bridge] A thousand kisses to the haters cause they made me greater A thousand wishes from a million slaves could raise a savoir A thousand disses to these dickheads at these major labels From Big Daddy Kane to Big Daddy Kane and Abel You pay a cost to be a boss, nigga, I paid the wager Mastered both sides of the force and plus I made my saber Yes sir, I'm a soldier of love Drowning all my sorrows and woes in the club My white boys say, "that shit you spit last year, bro Was like a real fine Merlot and a cashmere throw" Some black chicks say he ugly, white women they love me My Asians and my mamis don't put nothing above me I call it as it happens, the art of quality rapping One autobiographical chapter could start up the rapture And even though I walk in the narrow valley of death All I see is green pastures, bitches screaming from the rafters

Modern Mans Hustle

ATMOSPHERE
The first time I met the Devil was at a Motel 6 she left Hell to spend a weekend on Earth just for kicks sexy little bitch, shorter than expected about five-foot five big an' thick in the breast and thighs beautiful, dark eyes a strong stare large lips, soft hands and long hair I said Ill make you smile for the simple fact Im good at it Ill make you smile just so I can sit and look at it, Chorus: 2x I will show you all you need to know you must hold on to anyone that wants you and I will love you through simple and the struggle but girl you gotta understand the modern man must hustle Who cares what Jane says she always spits the same spit Id rather kill the radio and listen to the rain hit little sister needs seclusion Somehow she'll discover it through the pop music got used to the feeling of falling but you'll never see her following bouncing back and forth between the healing and the hollering riding the outer ring of your own private saturn thoughts scattered all across the grey matter Little baby doll, she doesnt know what to say to yall the patience is short and of course the pride is way too tall break it all smash the past like it was made of glass aint no other way to make it last It hurts to watch Lucy lose a dream Ive had the pleasure of seeing our hero kick and scream and when she calms down Ill turn the sound down and put my arms around the little lost and found and Ill tell her that Chorus:2x Hush little lady dont say a word all the rest of the village gonna know your disturbed and if you let em know that your vulnerable then there aint no stoppin (high) before they open you slow Im a chapter in you text book Read me like a check book mistook love at first sight for a sex look enough of the blind mans bluff I want the good stuff trying to hook up a full belly and a foot rub The moderns man hustle, i dig it I shuvle feed me ya troubles and need me to cuddle bundle up in my mitten and coat as cold as it get Ill keep your winter afloat so let the snow fall (its comin down) she doesnt want to understand why I still come around she look at the mirror she dont see what I see she hold no history of how precious she be Lay your head on my chest speak of this stress kick your feet up and rest before we clean up the nest I hate to see you upset, it cramps the position and if you didnt know you better listen cause Chorus:2x
