Escapee

Original and similar lyrics
[VERSE 1:] This escapee was never gonna stay On an unfamiliar building on the rooftop where we lay Where all the constellations shine to pave the way Temptation's not a word until we've let it go a stray And I won't delete it He won't delete it, wha-ha-ho! [VERSE 2:] Light bolts hover over you all day Oh darkness can be difficult like needles in the hay I need to flick the switch and show you how to hide And love is not the answer if you're taking me for a Ri-i-i-i-ide For a ri-i-i-i-ide [VERSE 1 REPRISE:] This escapee was never gonna stay On an island way too difficult to be stuck in a daze And all the competition's overcome what may Temptation's not a word until we've let it go astray And I won't delete it He won't delete it, wha-ha-ho! [OUTRO:] I'm escaping, you're escaping I'm escaping, you're taking me for a Ri-i-i-i-ide For a ri-i-i-i-ide I'm escaping, you're escaping For a ri-i-i-i-ide I'm escaping, you're escaping For a ri-i-i-i-ide I'm escaping, you're escaping I'm escaping, you're escaping

He wakes up to the alarm clock it's goin off hits the snooze for ten more minutes he dozes off but it's time to get up, get a shower go to work, get no respect again his boss is a jerk and deep inside it lerks, the pain and the hurt, he wants a change but he wears the same shirt again for 6 years he struggles with the fear of changing what he knows to fight off the tears but it's a new day, he wonders what it would take to have new dreams and to own new things it's a small price to pay, to get up and leave than to stay here, and continue to bleed so he hops in his car, off to work he goes the choice that was made, only he knows he starts to smile as he hits the gas cause hes got a new plan and a new task Gonna keep ridin on he's gonna ride off into the sunset he's got some things that he aint done yet cause he needs something different in his life cause some things are just not right She's sick and tired of everything he's done, said he's working late but he's out havin fun messin around gettin phone numbers on the side, got 2 phones but only 1 that he hides thinks he's bein slick, thinks she don't know, but she found out about a week ago know the whole deal, knows what he's doin, knows she's not the only chic that he's screwin so she knows now, it's a new day, she's got to leave and knows she can't stay small price to pay, to get up and leave than to stay here and continue to bleed so she hops in her car and off she goes, where to now she really don't know but she starts to smile as she hits the gas cause she's got a new plan and a new task Gonna keep ridin on she's gonna ride off into the sunset she's got some things that she aint done yet she needs something different in her life cause some things are just not right Sometimes we all just need a change and things in life need rearranged it's time to get over the shame of changing what if left to claim sometimes we're all stuck in the rain, it'll stay the same if you remain it's up to you to make a change in you don't ride on your left to blame and now it's time, to make a stand, replace your life with a brand new plan so take your life and change it's course if you feel like, you can't take it anymore

Let's Stay Together

LYFE JENNINGS "The Phoenix"
Lalalalala la......ohhhhhhhh we gonna put some people back together today ha Lalalalala somebody's gonna thank me after this song man Lalalalala matter of fact I'm gonna thank me right now haha wooh Lalalalala ooh Girl I apologize I'm to blame And I can't sympathise with your pain If I could I'd make it go away, but I can't So I concentrate on more realistic things Like questioning is there anything here really worth salvaging [Bridge:] Is it over, how do we go about deciding Do we add up all the good times then divide them By how many times we hurt each other Or do we just ignore there numbers And vow right now that nothing's gonna take us under [Chorus:] Let's stay together Can we agree to just disagree Let's stay together Don't do it for the kids do it for me Let's stay together I'm tired of all this making up and breaking up Let's stay together Girl I can't justify what I've done ain't got no reasons why, not even one I pray to God it seems like every morning for the sun to shine on us just one more time and let me hold you in my arms and we just cry [Bridge] [Chorus] [Breakdown:] See if you leave I will not die physically But emotionally "You might as well bury me" Said if I can't be the man I should've been before all of this happened. But if we hold on "And ask god for direction..." when we get lost we can make the correction if we just stand strong all our ups and downs have finally come around And there will be nothing that can shake us nothing that can break us and we will stay together!!! [Chorus x2] (Put your hands together man, let's go) Let's stay together [Lyfe talking:] This is where it all comes to a head at Are all these years worth nothing, Is it over? You don't wanna be with him, he don't wanna be with you. Hell you done made some mistakes too. He done made some mistakes you done made some mistakes before man, Work it out man. And you dudes out there Anybody can be slick at talking Anybody can be slick at talking, man Try to be slick at listening, man Your work is at home It ain't in the streets, it's at home So get there, get there And stay there.

Act My Age

HOODIE ALLEN "People Keep Talking"
[Verse 1:] They say the way I act is immature Well don't be mad at me because you're feeling insecure The only golf I ever tried to play was miniature And when you ask me sign your boobs I smiley face my signature But my parents raised me right, they were sticklers And we don't even fight, we're like oil and some vinegar Getting a job is like a pregnant woman giving birth You're trying to push me in the wrong direction and it fucking hurts So most our friends already moved out of they mama's cribs I'm still throwing parties at my house, like Stifler So if you go around and try to tell me how to live I'mma take your girl and Mortal Kombat finish her [Pre-Hook:] But when it's done and the party shuts down And the cops try to lay my ass on the ground One day we might tell our kids, but until that day let's live like this [Hook:] My friends grew up, they never get drunk They never wanna hang out late They're gonna get jobs, they're gonna pay bills They're gonna get old and gray I'll never do that, I wanna stay young Don't wanna fit in, I wanna have fun So if that's okay, I don't think I'm ever gonna act my age [Verse 2:] And when it comes to getting older No matter what I do, I'm never feeling like a grown up People trying to make me change, you'd think there was a quota Like there ain't enough unemployed motherfuckers with diplomas Everybody waiting 'round hoping that they blow up But I'mma make it sooner, Oklahoma I learned to be a player, make money like I'm an owner These other rappers are so over the hill, word to Jonah So if you see me in a restaurant, say hi to me And if I ask you if you like my new shit, lie to me Word to Tim Roth And I don't know if I fit in with your society So chill, take a pill for anxiety and doze off [Pre-Hook 2:] But when it's late and you're all alone And you're too damn drunk to be walking home Then maybe you should call it quits But until that day let's live like this [Hook] [Bridge:] Oh, it's all good, it's alright, it's okay We can live however we want And there ain't nobody that can get in our way Oh, it's all good, it's alright, it's okay We gon' do whatever we want Never gonna listen to a word you say [Hook]

I'll Let You Go

CAROLYN DAWN JOHNSON "Dress Rehearsal"
We drove all night, and half the next day Up through the mountains to the open space Got through registration, searched for my dorm, I was so thankful he'd been there before. He carried my boxes, he helped me unpack Told old college stories until I laughed But the tears started falling as we ran out of time, And I did all I could to avoid his goodbye. He said I wish I could stay here, It's hard on me too. But I know that there's so much that you've got to do, So... I'll let you go, You can stop crying. Oh it's not the end of the world, Girl you know, you're gonna be fine. Give me a hug and let me see you smile, You know that I'll see you in a little while, So I'll let you go. I made it through school, I made some big plans, Yeah, I chased my dreams in some far away land, But everything changed when I got the call, And chasing those dreams meant nothing at all. I told him I'm gonna stay here, And take care of you. He said that's the last thing that I'd let you do, But... I'll let you go, You can stop crying. Oh it's not the end of the world, Girl you know, I'm gonna be fine. Give me a hug and let me see you smile, You know that I'll see you in a little while, So I'll let you go. With the wings that he gave me, I learned how to fly, One day they brought me back to be by his side, I knew he was holding on for me, But I couldn't say the words, The ones that would set him free, The last thing I heard, he said... I'll let you go.

Gone

JAMES OTTO "Days Of Our Lives"
I wonder where she is tonight Is she alone or did she find What she needed from me I guess I got what I deserve How could I do on hurtin' her that way And think she'd stay I found it sittin' on the stove "It's over" written on a Post-It note And that was all she wrote [CHORUS:] SHE'S GONE LIKE THE MIND OF A MAN INSANE GONE LIKE THE SNOW WHEN IT TURNS TO RAIN AND RUNS DOWN THE ROAD AND DOWN THE DRAIN, SO LONG LONG GONE LIKE THE MONEY WHEN YOU'VE PAID THE RENT GONE LIKE THE TIME THAT I SHOULD'VE SPENT AT HOME WITH HER, TOO BAD, ONE WORD GONE Then out of nowhere she showed up For a minute I didn't know what to say I was blown away This time I'm gonna do things right Gonna show her every night I care This time, I swear As I reach out to touch her face That's when the whole thing starts to fade Then I hear the sound of my alarm clock And it hits me like a Mack truck doin' ninety Down a one way dead end road bound straight for hell [REPEAT CHORUS] Long, long gone like the money when you've paid the rent Gone like the time that I should've spend at home With her, too bad, one word Gone Gone
