Original and similar lyrics
Does anyone in here get hit with inside fever, So bad sometimes it's hard to move around? They'll show you all the things you are not doing, Instead of helping you they'll block ya out. And you're whining you shouldn't waste your morning, But the couch fibers kept you inside. Said I'm so sorry I came in late this evening, But all the clocks around the town had died, And all the fruit stores' colors were so bright, With couples smiling, cooking things tonight, And what were all those troubles on my mind? Oh, I took a walk... (Cough! Sniff...) Well, uh, Just what I need, right? The morning light. The room (cough) we all have, No more any (?) I just listen tonight, And all we know, Is all that I have, Is in control. The room is still a little hot. And I don't break til a midnight shock. Are you coming out tonight? Pretend I am? Well, I just might. The room is filled with ancient dates, Where I've been and what I ate. Before I'm asked to throw them out, I play with every little doubt. The room is filled with gummy bears, Electric shavers, ingrown hairs. I keep the curtains tied in knots. You sleep on cotton, rest in cots The room is filled with catalogues, Encyclopedias, books enough, To keep me busy in the morning. Sun sets fast without a warning. The room is filled with cords and plugs, Electronic translucent bugs. And what's that crawling all around? What's that twitching, is it still alive!? Is it still alive!? Is it still alive!? Does anyone in here get hit with inside fever, So bad sometimes it's hard to move around? They'll show you all the things you are not doing, Instead of helping you they'll block ya out. And you're whining you shouldn't waste your morning, But the couch fibers kept you inside. I'm so sorry I came in late this evening, But all the clocks around the town had died, And all the fruit stores colors were so bright, With couples smiling, cooking things tonight, And what were all those troubles on my mind? Yes, I took a walk. Oh, I like a walk. Oh, I like a walk.

You Cant Walk In Your Sleep

THE GO-GO'S
(Charlotte Caffey/Jane Wiedlin) Last night you slept, you slept in fits You smashed your windows bit by bit YOu cried out-a bad dream Horror pictures-what a scene! Which way will things go tonight Toss and turn or sleep tight You can't win you wonder why That sleep is one thing you can't buy CHORUS You can't walk in you sleep If you can't sleep You can't walk in your sleep If you can't sleep Downed that pill hours ago And time is passing oh so slow Watch the clock-you're waiting It's five o'clock and the world is waking That's the way things went tonight Tossed and turned though you were tight Exhaustion brings on desperation Well there's still some consolation CHORUS ------------------------------------------------

Hey Yall

ABK (ANYBODY KILLA) "Dirty History"
Hey ya'll Come over here, check this out And gimme a minute of your time, but don't doubt Anything that I tell ya'll, listen up closely It's something ghostly, my ancestors told me Way back before we walked the earth It was so much cleaner cause it wasn't disturbed But there was still hatred and strugglin' for our color Cause if you had nothing you were bound to smother And I don't know why, cause helping hands should be a must It was written on the manuscript, in the book you trust Unless it's all just a way to get us arguin' Believe what you feel, even if it's a life of sin [Chorus 2x] Hey ya'll Everybody gotta watch they back We alone, so watch your back Hey ya'll Everybody gotta walk in they own path But at the end, you can't go back Ever since there's been a jail cell Murder's been committed Thou shalt not kill, and who's the one sinnin'? At the end of all of this, will they be judged? Punished for the life they took with no grudge Nowadays, things sure ain't changed There's a whole lot of states allowed to fry your brains That's cause lately we just burn it away Let them build they own prisons where their ass can stay It's a wonder how we let things happen I ain't special But I enjoy takin' it to another level Bad choices lead to a terrible afterlife So, just learn your wrongs from right [Chorus 2x] Hey ya'll Everybody gotta watch they back We alone, so watch your back Hey ya'll Everybody gotta walk in they own path But at the end, you can't go back Hey ya'll I don't mean to get ya thinkin' about Things that's gonna get ya down and out There just things I had to get up off my chest Cause I'm trying to relax and just do my best I don't wanna take a situation, and turn it upside down I just feel this world's fuckin' around I mean, who am I to judge? I just, I was raised to be strong enough Hey ya'll Do you understand what I'm saying? Hey ya'll My ancestors got me down on my knees prayin' Hey ya'll They keep tellin' me to spread the word Hey ya'll Cause when they come their gonna test what you have learned [Chorus 2x] Hey ya'll Everybody gotta watch they back We alone, so watch your back Hey ya'll Everybody gotta walk in they own path But at the end, you can't go back Hey ya'll Hey ya'll! Retaliation, what now bitch!!

Before You Walk Out My Life

MONICA "Miss Thang"
Oh oh oh, oh yeah yes, oh oh oh, my, my Here we are face to face With the memories that can't be erased Although we need each other Things that changed, it's not the same Sometimes it makes me wonder Where would I be, if you hadn't discovered Which I did, inside of me I know there was something, that we could compare Oh, well, I, 1-Never meant to cause you no pain I just wanna go back to being the same Well I, only wanna make things right Before you walk out of my life Remembering the good times From a portrait hung on high It's filled with so much color And the laughter we left behind I made the choice and you couldn't decide I made the choice, I was wrong you were right Deep down inside, I apologize (rpt 1) Though I made plans with you To always have time for you (Before you walk out of my life) I guess it's true, cannot live without you Don't ever go away, ooh oh yeah (rpt 1, 1) Before you walk out of my life

The Glittering Prize

John Waite "Temple Bar"
There's a silent movie Running off its reel inside my mind As I try to fall asleep tonight On prescription lullabyes In the darkness there's a doorway That leads me back to you forever But these days there's only You and I in photographs Ambitions and dreams we've shared Now I wonder who has got the last laugh Cause I know you're crying And you know I'm cold inside Got no expectations for my pride And I reach for that glittering prize I remember on our wedding day Looking back at you Our eyes met and we said goodbye As we both said I do Didn't I make a promise baby I would stand by you forever But sometimes the best-laid plans Flare up and blow away And fairytale logic comes Sweeps you heart Your soul'Your world away Cause I know you're crying And you know I'm cold inside And I'm tired of living with that lie And now time is flying And you know I miss that fire But I feel for you I've got desire So I reach for that glittering prize No doll's house dreams Or valentines Just the future at the door Just leaving trains and empty rooms A broken band of gold Cause love don't live here anymore And some nights I'll come and see you And I know you'll let me in Two strangers in silence now Cause you know in love We could never win I know you're crying And you know I'm cold inside And I'm tired of living with this lie These days Cause now time is flying And you know I miss that fire Cause I feel for you I've got desire Baby baby In my world (in your world tonight) Reach for that glittering prize (in my world) That's all I ever seemed to do (in your world tonight) Was reach for the glittering prize (in my world) I lost myself when I lost you (in your world tonight) As I reached for that glittering prize (in my world) And I hope that all your dreams come true (in your world tonight) When you reach for that glittering prize (in my world) In your world In my world tonight

That's How Smooth I Am

Lord Finesse "Return of The Funky Man"
Here we go so pay attention to the teacher cut 4X [Lord Finesse] Y'all sweatin the next man cause y'all think he's live Cause the gear he buy or the car that he drive He's out your league meanin not your equal You're idolizin some knucklehead who can't teach you So get yours like you first intended Go out for self that means be independent Word up stop sweatin that brother I don't think he got his dependin on another But y'all wanna cling and be under his wing Brag about his things like his chains and rings How he's livin fat, buyin this and that Y'all wit him everday, but y'all ain't makin jack Y'all gettin played like Nintendo He's not showin y'all how to be large like him though You could be PAID, strivin out, gettin things Hangin with him, you can't afford two chicken wings You're better off goin out solo Cause stickin with him, you're not makin no dough So stop hawkin and holdin out your hand Get yours -- and stop sweatin the next man Be yourself, and walk your own way - cut 4X [Lord Finesse] Nowadays, things are lookin critical Y'all sweatin a brother, females are widdit too A man that's paid, that's what the females are seekin That's why they dress up and go out every weekend No doubt that some of these, females are wannabees Sweatin every brother with a car over 20 G's You break your neck, to run after him He know damn well that you can't do jack for him He got game, so your head is all psyched He's the type, to get the sex the first night So you get with him, you run and tell all your crew I love that man! Yeah, sure you do Your intentions was to jerk him and scoop the cash You didn't know he was too smart for your stupid ass He knows you're not makin no dough Wearin the same outfit three weekends in a row Everytime you see him, you're broke and empty handed Then wonder why you got fucked and left stranded Went all out to please and impress him Now he's gone, you wonder why you can't catch him Check it out, to end off the segment You're confused, you fell off - plus you're pregnant! Got caught out there, that wasn't part of the plan Finesse what should I do? Stop sweatin the next man Be yourself, and walk your own way - cut 4X [Lord Finesse] If a person's out your league, then let him go He might be cool, but you don't have to sweat him though I don't care if he's drivin, or he dressed GQ You deserve just as much respect, as he do What you wanna be - a loaner or a borrower? Owner or employer? Leader or a follower? The next man is not here to help y'all He can't put you down, you can only make yourself fall But y'all sweat him cause the shit is down pat He's livin fat, yeah the brother's all that Out of all the fish in the sea, y'all think he's the head shark Y'all sweat him so much, y'all givin his dick stretch marks So don't sweat him cause y'all think he's a big shot And stop scheamin on what some other kid got You could use your skills to gain wealth and respect then you could be just as large as the next man Listen to me -- and I'll bet you when you get paid, the next man'll sweat you That's today's plan, and tomorrow's move is to get paid, and make other brothers follow you And let em know, to take they stand and get theirs -- and stop sweatin the next man! Be yourself, and walk your own way - cut 4X Here we go, so pay attention to the teacher - also cut * both to fade *
