Fold

Original and similar lyrics
I've been walking through the park I've been walking in the dark I've been walking in the rain I've been walking so much pain I've been walking in the sun It's bought me so much fun Lying on a beach Darkness out of reach The world is not so cold But still, it makes me fold So hold me and keep me sailing Hold me close to you Keep me from failing Disappearing from you Keep those clouds dispersing Never leave my side Don't let that peaceful water Don't let it subside Don't let my head confide Don't let my head collide With those cynical lies With those cynical lies With those cynical lies With those cynical lies

Walk Away

M People "Bizarre Fruit"
A little girl cries next door, I just wanna hold her hand. Sometimes it gets so tough with my head buried in the sand. And everyday more people die, walk away, avert their eyes. As the death clock ticks, the trigger clicks beaten with a crucifix. Bullet proof lies, family ties. Which one's right, no one's wise. In a world that lies. [chorus] Walk away. Tomorrow's another day. Walk away. Why not let it fade away? Walk away. Tomorrow's another day. Walk away. The problem will go away. A little boy cries next door, I just wanna hold his hand. Sometimes it gets so hard with my head buried in the sand. The holy squad is filled with hate. Terror strikes Joe Public's fate. TV blood, a crime rate vote. Politics and a suicide note. Who is bad and what is good? Earth and water, flesh and blood. We'd help every bro'. [chorus] (Walk away, walk away.) [x2] Don't look back before you (walk away, walk away.) [x2] [chorus] Walk away. (Walk away, walk away) (Walk away, walk away) Walk away. (Walk away, walk away) (Walk away, walk away) Don't look up. (Walk away, walk away) Don't look down, just keep on walking away. (Walk away, walk away) (Walk away, walk away) You people, keep on walking away. (Walk away, walk away) Just keep on walking away. [x2]

Don't Look Back

Huey Lewis and The News "Hard at Play"
Woman left for another man Took you're car and a steely dan There's only one thing to do Keep on walking and don't look back Head on down to the chicken shack Go and act like a maniac Keep on walking and don't look back Had a little trouble with a guy at work Got a great big mouth for a little jerk Got a lot of bills one check won't pay And a love that's real is fading away There's only one thing to do Keep on walking and don't look back Head on down to the chicken shack Go and act like a maniac Keep on walking and don't look back Keep on walking and don't look back Don't you just sing the blues Keep on walking and never look back Put on your walking shoes Keep on walking and don't look back, never look back Just chalk it up to history, set yourself free Keep on walking and don't look back Head on down to the chicken shack Go and act like a maniac Keep on walking and don't look back

Somewhere Down The Barrel

The Dissociatives "The Dissociatives"
Somewhere from the mortar They saved you from far away labels Eternity means nothing But a sign on a bridge When everyone's a stranger They call for you by your first name And laugh at jokes you once made When you were a kid Somewhere down the barrel Lies a bullet that I can't keep And in these waters I'm wading for a reason After all, it's in my head I'm not a slave to a desperate lust And in these waters I'm wading for a reason after all Screaming limitations Fall silent on New York corners A terrorist's a prisoner, and a tourist a thief When paintings seem like bargains But they're nothing but wallpaper I'm plagued by small town fascists Like a rash on my skin Somewhere down the barrel Lies a bullet that I can't keep And I've been searching for something more than distance After all, it's in my head I'm not a slave to an unborn trust And in these waters I'm wading for a reason after all nah nah nah nah nah....

If

JONI MITCHELL "Shine"
If you can keep your head While all about you People are losing theirs and blaming you If you can trust yourself When everybody doubts you And make allowance for their doubting too. If you can wait And not get tired of waiting And when lied about Stand tall Don't deal in lies And when hated Don't give in to hating back Don't need to look so good Don't need to talk too wise. If you can dream And not make dreams your master If you can think And not make intellect your game If you can meet With triumph and disaster And treat those two imposters just the same If you can force your heart And nerve and sinew To serve you After all of them are gone And so hold on When there is nothing in you Nothing but the will That's telling you to hold on! Hold on! If you can bear to hear The truth you've spoken Twisted and misconstrued By some smug fool Or watch your life's work Torn apart and broken down And still stoop to build again With worn out tools. If you can draw a crowd And keep your virtue Or walk with Kings And keep the common touch If neither enemies nor loving friends Can hurt you If everybody counts with you But none too much. If you can fill the journey Of a minute With sixty seconds worth of wonder and delight Then The Earth is yours And Everything that's in it But more than that I know You'll be alright You'll be alright. Cause you've got the fight You've got the insight You've got the fight You've got the insight

Above My Floor

AER "Aer"
[Chorus - Dave:] I never wanna know ya I think I see him walking Collide with the ghost above my floor High, headed up the corner I think I see him walking Say hi to the ghost I won’t become [Verse 1 - Carter:] He and I could fight all night But he is me, so get this right I’m torn inside but act so bright And who to be i can’t decide So I’ll roll the rest up, rid the pressure Diesel from forty, on top the dresser Inhale the smoke, I’ll clean the mess up Opaque hope, extreme measures Indulge in all types of pleasures Don’t talk to him I can explain it much better Imma medicate myself if I want to Not a level head and will say anything bout you Looking in the mirror finding someone to shout to The answer’s in the haze so I’ll figure it out soon I’m keeping up cuz I’m fast learner Tryna disregard my evil as the worlds turnin The ego in each of us wants to eat through the furnace And then heat up your house and just laugh it off as it’s burning [Chorus - Dave] [Verse 2 - Carter:] I’ve learned to pick quality over quantity When does confident become cocky? What if i told you that’s not me Hiding behind expensive liquor and kawasakis The diamond’s getting bigger I’m in the rough of the rockies Power trippin, tricked into giving the guy who brought me What he deserves, been on my nerves Despite it all i can find the courage I’m high in attic, so close to the angels But he’s in the basement playing games with the devil I’m tryna get out and see the world from all angles He only wants to stay in and polish up all his medals Spun out in the city makes it hard to say I’m stable Ain’t giving up for nothing no homie I won’t settle Crumbs crushed up on the old wooden table High above the problems is me having my head up
