Clones

Original and similar lyrics
I can see for miles in your eyes, they disappear into a sea of faces, I can see for miles with your eyes, their faces are faceless. Clones of yourself. I can see for miles with your eyes, their faces are faceless. Clones of, clones of yourself, I can see for miles in your eyes.

Austin Prison

JOHNNY CASH "Everybody Loves A Nut"
They had a warrant out for me all over the country And I was trying to beat the raps in Idaho I was breaking into a schoolhouse Sunday morning without warning When I saw the sheriff coming for me slow from down below His steel grey eyes were blazing when he saw me His hand was on his gun when he rode up He said you killed that woman I know you shot her why'd you do it I'm taking you to Austin then I'm gonna lock you up Well he tied me with a plow line the next morning And he had me deep in Texas the next day A crazy screaming lynch mob waited in the streets of Austin But he put me in the jailhouse and he threw the key away A jury found me guilty three months later twelve evil men with murder in their eyes They even took me out and said now show us where you killed her And that wicked judge said now I here by sentence you to die But here I am far away from Austin prison my friend the jailer handed me a file Now all I want between me and there are a lot of friendly people And miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles

Not There

JAMES "Strip-Mine"
Hello Swig from the bottle, now who's sucking who You'd prefer the nipple, but your teeth have cut through Defects we're born with, but poisons we choose He' s not there, just a gap in the air He's not there, just the smell of despair He's not there Pill-popping and a pint-pulling And a thirst-quenching, mind-bending Pill-popping and a pint-pulling And a thirst-quenching, mind-bending Pill-popping and a knife-pulling People come knocking, but there's no one at home Did you get my call, oh you haven't a phone That look in your eyes, it's miles away Don't look in your eyes, you are miles away He's not there he's really not there Oh, people come knocking but there's no one at home Did you get my call, oh you haven't a phone That look in your eyes, it's miles away That look in your eyes, it's miles away He's not there he's really not there

4 A.M.

ALEX G "Found"
It’s pouring rain at 4 a.m. I feel so close to you right now But have you fallen for me yet? I’d let you go but I don’t know how And I know it’s just another night But I fell for you again And I remember when You didn’t wanna waste a moment You were captured in my arms And stolen by my eyes It’s still your heart that lifts me And your words that can kill me But still I’d run for miles Just to be near you Oh ohhh… Your presence lingers on my neck I can’t let go of you right now I’m kinda scared of what comes next I might just die if you forget And I know it’s just another night but I fell for you again And I remember when You didn’t wanna waste a moment You were captured in my arms And stolen by my eyes It’s still your heart that lifts me And your words that can kill me But still I’d run for miles You cut me open And you fill me with this hope When you know this whole thing’s hopeless And I’m hopelessly hoping That you will see What lies inside of me It’s pouring rain at 4 a.m. I feel so close to you right now And I don’t wanna waste this moment Captured in your arms And stolen by your eyes eyes It’s still your heart that lifts me And your words that can kill me But still I’d run for miles So close so close now Don’t let go let go now Won’t you fall for me tonight? It’s still your heart that lifts me And your words that can kill me But still I’d run for miles Just to be near you

His Eyes Are A Blue Million Miles

JOAN OSBORNE "Early Recordings"
I look at him and he looks at me In his eyes I see the sea Don't see what he sees in a girl like me He says he loves me His eyes, his eyes His eyes are a blue million miles His eyes, his eyes His eyes are a blue million miles Far as I can see he loves me His eyes, his eyes His eyes are a blue million miles

Freedom To Stay

WAYLON JENNINGS "Lonesome, On'ry And Mean"
I tied my bandana took my pack from the floor You were still sleeping as I stood at the door Once more I was headin' to God only knows where That's when it hit me I was already there. I could ramble a thousand miles or more Never find the light I've seen in your eyes before You gave me the freedom to go on my way But you gave me much more you gave me the freedom to stay. Why keep on runnin' just to wish on a star Searching for Heaven when I know where you are Life is just empty when you're walking alone So wherever we're going girl Lord it's good to be at home. I could ramble a thousand miles or more Never find the light I've seen in your eyes before You gave me the freedom to go on my way But you gave me much more you gave me the freedom to stay...
