Automatic

Original and similar lyrics
I push so hard they hardly push back Instinct has led me to a man trap Divorce my conscience to be undone Throw down my ladder so you can get up It's automatic I just can't help it Part dopey dog and one part steam train On the back foot I see that look again I push so hard they hardly push back And you say, alright It's automatic I just can't help it I tell you what to do I'll do the work for you I'll tell you what to do It's automatic I just can't help it It's automatic I just can't help this place I'm in

RYAN ADAMS "Cardinals III/IV"
I try so hard to be good I get these bad ides I try so hard to be good It doesn't always work out It doesn't always work out But I try... To feel the sunlight on my eyes Shake off the shadows That were following me around It's very nice you know and quite a lot to take in To feel the sunlight and start growing again I taught myself to push it away I was watching, watching you do it to me I taught myself to throw it away And you get used to being happy you get used to it, used to it, used to it... I like to thing about the clouds... How they are moving Sometimes it's nice to stay home... When everybody goes out It's nice and quiet when they call it's so loud I don't understand I shuffle cool across the boulevard My feet move steady, my shoes go up and down I'm always late you know... Late and never ready I keep it steady though When I get tight and all up right I taught myself to push it away I was watching, watching you do it to me I taught myself to throw it away And you get used to being happy you get used to it, used to it, used to it... Make no mistake to be user don't mean loser Witty and cruel they are so easy to confuse You'll learn eventually or... Eventually you'll lose it... Eventually you'll lose it... Get used to it...

Something's Gotta Blow

JOAN ARMATRADING "Into The Blues"
Smell of a man Smell of musk The noise of the train From morning till dusk The up escalator broken down The clothes on my back Look like they were taken out of the laundry basket To weary to wash To weary to wash Now there's hordes of people Pushing and shoving Sizzling noises coming out of their ears Hold on to the strap Or hold on to a stranger Hope that stranger's day has not been too hard Aggression builds up When the going is slow And you're packed like sardines Something's gotta blow Something's gotta blow When you work so hard And the sweat pours down on you Something's gotta blow When your pay don't match The work you slave And the pain you get Something's gotta blow Please stand on the right So I can pass on the left Cos Something's gotta blow Something's gotta blow Something's gotta blow Dodging the fare Ain't worth the crime Think of your loved ones Whilst you’re doing your time Being met at the station No better thrill Than that 4x4 cruiser Coming over the hill Bringing love and relief From the noise and the heat From the suicide jumpers From that head nodding sleep From the smell of burgers And the rustling of sweets Someone lend me your phone So I can say which train to meet Let me say which train to meet Something's gotta blow When you work so hard And the sweat pours down on you Something's gotta blow When your pay don't match The work you slave And the pain you get Something's gotta blow Please stand on the right So I can pass on the left Cos something's gotta blow Something's gotta blow

Throw Down A Line

JEFF BECK "Beck-Ola"
Throw down a line, help a poor boy Who's drowning in the stormy sea Throw down a line, help a poor boy Who's hanging in a nowhere tree Have you got a place for me Men are tied in chains of silence I look on violence, up, down, left and right Is there no hope of light The peaceful hand that once caressed me Hurts like the rest, because it's turned to stone Talons of steel have grown Throw down a line, help a poor boy Who's drowning in the stormy sea Throw down a line, help a poor boy Who's hanging in a nowhere tree Have you got a place for me Yeah, oh help me, yeah Throw down a line, help a poor boy Who's drowning in the stormy sea Throw down a line, help a poor boy Who's hanging in a nowhere tree Have you got a place for me See the moon, it's getting nearer But no more clearer than the earth below What do we really know I feel the stab of pain returning Despair is burning in my heart again Why don't they see the end, ooooh Throw down a line, help a poor boy Who's drowning in the stormy sea Yeah, throw down a line, help a poor boy Who's hanging in a nowhere tree Have you got a place for me Throw down a line, help a poor boy Who's drowning in the stormy sea Yeah, throw down a line, help a poor boy Who's hanging in a nowhere tree Have you got a place for me

The Gypsy

AMANDA MARSHALL "Everybody's Got A Story"
If I had a crystal ball, I would throw it against the wall 'Cause some things, you just don't wanna know So don't try to read my palm, or predict what we'll become 'Cause the real thing just needs space to grow I do believe in us, but But you can't fast forward through The kinda deep only time can prove What's the rush, baby, trust what faith can do Let's not play the game of love with scared money Let's not say what we'll become Let's just roll the dice and throw away the cards You don't have to push so hard 'Cause the gypsy in me needs to roam your heart (I need to roam ya...I need to roam ya...I need to roam, your heart) You know I would live my life Out a suitcase every night Before I'd let you tie me down So just lean back and relax Feel your bare feet in the grass And let love run on open ground I do believe in you, but You can't tell a bird not to fly You can't tell the sun when to shine What's the rush, baby, we can take out time Let's not play the game of love with scared money Let's not say what we'll become Let's just roll the dice and throw away the cards You don't have to push so hard 'Cause the gypsy in me needs to roam your heart 'The finest tapestry takes patience and the ability to wait For each thread to support the bigger picture and the larger purpose And in the fearless, reckless pursuit of intimate love It is not the destination it's the journey' Let's not play the game of love with scared money Let's not say what we'll become Let's just roll the dice and throw away the cards You don't have to push so hard 'Cause the gypsy in me needs to roam your heart
