Ol' Keeper

Original and similar lyrics
[Talk Intro:] I I can't just keep watching you all the time and everything, I mean hey. If you were mine, maaan... you'd change your ways. Wouldn't be all that going out staying all night long, not letting a brotha know where you are when you coming home. Things would change, things would surely change. [Verse 1:] You been working on the night shift And ain't no telling who you with And Every time that the phone rings You be steady scrambling Tryna go and do your thing There's been talk all over the town People tellin' how you putting it down Girl when I need you-you're nowhere, nowhere to be found [Hook:] If I was yo keeper I wouldn't never let em' run off with you If I was yo keeper I wouldn't never let him do the things he do I would be up in yo spot all night Making sure that you don't leave my sight Making sure that we be getting it right Until the night is through [Verse 2:] You're in and out of every fast car Sometimes no telling where you are I'm not trying to blow up yo thang But you need and try to change your ways (change your ways) Stop this silly masquerade Settle down before it's too late Before you make me up and blow And not come around here no more [Hook x2] Now baby, Now baby [Beat Break] [Ad lib:] Go on and change ways-yea, yea If I was your keeper [Alternate Ending Hook:] If I was yo keeper I wouldn't never let you do the things you do I would be up in yo spot all night Making sure that you don't leave my sight Making sure that we be gettin' it right Until the night is through Adlib: If I was yo keeper (if I was yo keeper) [Alternate Hook] [Outro:] If I was yo keeper I'd never let you be alone no no I would be up in you spot all night Making sure that you be getting it right Making sure that you don't leave my sight Oh no, oh no [Hook: until song fades out]

Change And Change And Change And Change

THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT "Songs Of God And Whiskey"
“You’re totally ignoring me,” she said as she put on her shirt I was lying on the bed, concentrating on her skirt “Did you hear one word I said?” she said “I don’t know, it’s all a blur” I close my eyes We fell in love in a great big rush Three years ago this June, I do recall Playing arcade games with her And wanting nothing at all Just this silly skinny girl Who tended to trip and fall On her lies But then summer came and we felt the strain Of the damning things we’d said All the summer rains like hurricanes That flew around our heads All the endless conversations, you know Like the things you could’ve done alone Instead, instead, instead, instead, instead So I fucked it up like I always do, I was born to be alone I don’t even know if the words were true that I screamed into the phone All I know is everybody leaves or so it seems to me When I’m alone, alone, alone, alone, alone But I was younger then and stronger then, somehow I can’t explain How these years can be so humbling, so strangely full of pain Just how everyone and everything must change and change and change and change And change and change and change Just like that Sometimes I feel just like a train that’s running off the tracks And sometimes I think I’ve said too many things I can’t take back And sometimes it seems like everything I do is just a waste In fact, that’s it, I think oh wait, I’m sure But I’m trying every morning that I wake to stand up straight And to always tell the truth and give back more than I take And to be kind and pure, less fucking scared of everything I just can’t take much more of this, I’m sure

All I Want Is You

ROXY MUSIC "Country Life"
(Ferry) Somebody told me Just the other day That you're leaving me We're through Well if you knew How it hurt me so Then you'd change your mind I'm sure Don't want to hear What's going on I don't care What's new Don't want to know About anything 'Cause all I want Is you Going out with other girls Was always such a bore But since I fell in love with you I need you more and more Don't want to know About one-night-stands Cut-price souvenirs All I want is The real thing And a night that lasts For years. If you ever change your mind I've a certain cure An old refrain, it lingers on L'amour, toujours l'amour... Don't want to learn About etiquette From glossy magazines Why should I try To talk correct Like they do In another scenes Say no more About imagery You're starting to confuse Just make an offer Of more romance Of course I can't refuse All I want is you Oo oo I'm all cracked up on you.

MXPX "Teenage Politics"

Looking For A Lady

DAN FOGELBERG "Home Free"
Looking for a lady I'm looking for a lady To change my night to day Looking for a lady I'm looking for a lady To chase my blues away. Well, I have a few in mind But none in particular I have had them before But nothing that was for sure. And I'm in no position to barter And I'm in no condition to play the martyr And I'm sadder certainly But I'm smarter And I find myself. Looking for a lady I'm looking for a lady To share my empty bed Looking for a lady I'm looking for a lady To soothe my aching head. Well, I have a few in mind But none in particular I have had them before But nothing that was for sure. And my feelings have grown rigid like a wooden post. And my love is like a curtain that has been drawn closed And my life just isn't going The way I thought it was supposed to And I'm crying and I find myself. Looking for a lady I'm looking for a lady To change my night to day.

On A Night Like This

BOB DYLAN "Planet Waves"
On a night like this I am so glad you came around Hold on to me so tight And heat up some coffee grounds We got much to talk about And much to reminisce It sure is right On a night like this. On a night like this So glad you've come to stay Hold on to me, pretty miss Say you'll never go away to stray Run your fingers down my spine Bring me a touch of bliss It sure feels right On a night like this. On a night like this I can't get any sleep The air is so cold outside And the snow's so deep Build a fire, throw on logs And listen to it hiss And let it burn, burn, burn, burn On a night like this. Put your body next to mine And keep me company There is plenty a room for all So please don't elbow me. Let the four winds blow Around this old cabin door If I'm not too far off I think we did this once before There's more frost on the window glass With each new tender kiss But it sure feels right On a night like this.
