What I Leave Behind

Original and similar lyrics
(Anita Cochran) Packed my things in a suitcase And I've put then in the car It's no longer my place I've convinced my heart You know how much I love you This I can't deny It hurts to look around this room At what I leave behind A picture sets of me and you When things were going right Memories of things we've been through Slowly move across my mind The times we've shared together The moments we've cried Destiny is calling to another place Still a sea of tears Keep falling down my face It's the hardest thing I'll ever do To have to go one without you But I'll try to force a smile And say the words goodbye To what I leave behind Packed my things in a suitcase And I've put then in the car

Pretty Girls (The Mover)

AGAINST ME! "Searching For A Former Clarity"
What are you gonna say when she picks up the phone? Should you leave a message if she's not at home? I wanted to know if you'd like to see a movie or get a drink. It would be cool just to be in your company. But if she says yes know what intentions might be. If one thing leads to another and there's some chemistry. You cannot lie, you have to tell the truth. You have to explain why this could never be, because There are things that cannot be undone. There are mistakes that will never be forgiven. Sometimes at night, I pray to wake a different person in a different place. Maybe we could just be friends. I'm being a bit presumptuous. The stomach churns, the mind starts to race. You nervously start to exaggerate. I just want to be young, I want to live. I want to be healthy, I don't want this problem. You wouldn't think something like irresponsibility, would complicate something like asking for some company. But there are things you must accept as said and done. There are truths you must learn to confront. You can pray all night and day. You'll always wake the same person in the same place. Drunk mouth ruined it again. Sometimes I say the dumbest things. Baby it's not you specifically it could be anybody. I gone and built this up in my head and now it's already over, It's already over, it's already over before it started.

A Stranger In My Place

JOAN BAEZ "Come From The Shadows"
I see the town Where we were born, I see the place We were raised, I see all the things you wanted That I never gave. I see sadness, I see sorrow, I see pain in your face, But I just can't see A stranger in my place. I can see now where we quarrelled, I can see now I was wrong, I can see where you might weaken When I wasn't strong. I see mem'ries of a love gone bad That time cannot erase, But I just can't see a stranger in my place. No one seems to know you quite like I do, No one knows the thigs that make you cry. Looking back it seems I never showed you, And now I lay alone and wonder why. I can see now Where you might grow tired of dreams That don't come true, I can see where I have fallen short Of the things I promised you. I can see mow throug my tear filled eyes no love on your face, I must get used to seein' strangers in my place.

Just In Time

JASON LANCASTER "As You Are"
And please bring me down from this awful suspense And tell me about everything that I've missed Cause I'm wasting time every second not kissed By this girl that I've found who keeps hope on her lips And I believe the world keeps its heart on her sleeve I'd love to tell her things but my tongue catches me Then I toss around ideas that maybe someday she'll let me Be the chest that she rests on when she's done walking in her sleep Because I would not let go and there are some things I just know Like I will lift you up and baby I will build you up Cause I could never try enough To show you I can be the love We're not hiding from this time And if it all falls down Just let me be here, let my arms surround And let me say how I'm so sure I've found A place for you to wear your crown A place where our names rhyme And it is all because you found me just in time So please don't change a thing for me you love about yourself And say you'll let me hold the things you don't Cause I've been here and waiting on some things to change for far too long And I hope that you'll just know That I will lift you up and baby I will build you up Because I could never try enough To show you I can be the love We're not hiding from this time And if it all falls down Just let me be here, let my arms surround And let me say how I'm so sure I've found A place for you to wear your crown A place where our names rhyme And it is all because you found me just in All because you found me just in All because you found me just in time

Somebody Out There

THE ALAN PARSONS PROJECT "Vulture Culture"
Maybe I'm imagining the things they say about me Maybe there is really nothing there at all Standing in the middle while the rumours fly around me Hiding from a shadow on an empty wall When my back is turned he's up to something else And I must not stop believing in myself m I dreaming will the nightmare just go on And never end Somebody out there, says that he's you Somebody out there, talks like you do He calls up your number And you can't get through somebody out there Wish that I could run away and leave it all behind me Wish I wasn't hurt by all the things they say If I didn't need to know the simple truth about me Wouldn't it be easier to walk away And I don't need more confusion in my life No more pain and disillusion in my life If I'm dreaming will the nightmare just go on And never end Somebody out there, stolen your base Somebody out there, parked in your place You've no reservation, he's taken your place Somebody out there, wasting your time Somebody out there, using your dime Your friends think you're crazy They're way out of line Somebody out there, says that he's you Somebody out there, thinks like you do You stare at the mirror You're looking into Somebody out there

Levi Stubbs' Tears

Billy Bragg "No Pop, No Style, Strictly Roots"
With the money from her accident She bought herself a mobile home So at least she could get some enjoyment Out of being alone No one could say that she was left up on the shelf It's you and me against the World kid she mumbled to herself CHORUS: When the world falls apart some things stay in place Levi Stubbs' tears run down his face She ran away from home with her mother's best coat She was married before she was even entitled to vote And her husband was one of those blokes The sort that only laughs at his own jokes The sort that war takes away And when there wasn't a war he left her anyway Norman Whitfield and Barratt Strong Are here to make everything right that's wrong Holland and Holland and Lamont Dozier too Are here to make it all okay with you One dark night he came home from the sea And put a hole in her body where no hole should be It hurt her more to see him walking out the door And though they stitched her back together they left her heart in pieces on the floor When the world falls apart some things stay in place She takes off the Four Tops tape and puts it back in its case When the world falls apart some things stay in place Levi Stubbs' tears...
