Young Again

Original and similar lyrics
Yesterday was gone before I knew we were able. We never had a dime. There was always food on the table. I do not weigh my life on this moment only to surrender. Here's our chance as we take what we're living painfully remember. Yesterday I was cold and alone til you came for me baby. Nothing in this world makes me warm like the home that you gave me. Yesterday's a memory for you and me. How would it feel to be young again? And everyday new avenue is calling you. How would it feel to be young again? Yesterday was gone before I knew we were able. We never had a dime, there was always food on the table. And I pray that we take all our time here, rejoice for one another. These are times when our days are all numbered, I swear to you my mother. Yesterday I was thrown to the walls til you came for me baby. Nothing in this world brings me down now that you saved me. Yesterday's a memory for you and me. How would it feel to be young again? And everyday new avenue is haunting you. How would it feel to be young again?

The Ave.

RUN DMC "Back From Hell"
[D.M.C.] These are the words that I wrote so I hope that ya don't man I'll never joke about the coke that you're smok-in Understand you're fuckin up, fuckin up the block Got shot rocked and that's just where the shit stops .. What's the meaning of this I must be dreaming Everybody's when I see men dealing for a rhyme or rope, or a dime of coke Sometimes I rhyme when I'm crying broke Many many many records broke laws, broke jaws A few months ago I had to 'Pause' During that time, me and my man was chilling on the corner with a quart in our hands A beef broke out, at Soul Kitchen spot It was crazy Baby Pop, someone got shot I seen him drop - then came the cops Sayin, 'Nobody run - everybody stop' I wanted to run, cause I was carryin my gun Darryl Mack packin mine, strapped with my nine Everyone on the wall, that's what the cop said Everyone complied, except Bald Dread, he said, 'Blood claat boi me nah hafa deal wit dat Yo I'm a superstar for de world dem call 'im Darryl Mack' I turned around and said, 'Word up cop!' He said, 'D.M.C., take your ass down the block' If it happened to him, it could happen to you cause that's what's happenin on The Avenue when I.. 'uhh, uhh uhh, uhh.. uhh..' 'Na-na-na-na-na! The Ave.' [Run] Now on The Ave. (what) people steal and they dealin away I got the feelin the illin will never ever pay Cause on the street, you're never in the fast lane You go to jail or get a bullet in your brain People laugh and smile at a stick-up A young man in a rut, shakin a big cup People pass his ass and say, 'Tough luck' To waste time for a dime is cold fucked up A loud shot in the air - not rare A brother fell to the ground, nobody cares You ask why, the baby cry, a man laugh Nobody give a damn, that's how they livin on The Ave. ... AUUUGH! [D.M.C.] Away from The Ave. they have what's called the backstreets Another world of girls that crawl the backseats Systems that are kickin, sinkin many black beats (This and that goin on street) I remember the time there was a jam in , the music, no til after dark That's when the shit starts happening (Brother from The Ave. this and that again) Body move in the back and a quarter in the jar Find the rules by the basketball court in the park And the by the bench where the 40 dogs spark The crowd crowds around like they found Noah's Ark The young, hung, and swung on a swing Glidin and slidin and ride the ding-a-ling I didn't see a kid by the see, so he saw (Near the monkey bars, funky cars we adore) I'm throwin fate to the gate (And my man from Japan got vicked for sure) Do me a favor when you roll with your crew You gotta check out, check out, The Avenue

The Days Of Being Young And Free

AMY MACDONALD "Life In A Beautiful Light"
Listen to my heart as it beats for you And it's telling you the things that I never could. And it's laying it down on the line for you. And the years are catching up, I can see it on your face. And the days of being young and free Are left there with the memories that blow in the wind. And I can feel it coming when the Monday morning blues, They last all through the week, I feel it on Sunday too. And I can feel it coming when my knees feel weak And I can not speak the truth. The days of being young, the days of being free. They're etched upon my face in every light that you see. The stories I could tell, the lies are told as well. What I wouldn't give to live it all again. The years are passing, every single day. Where did they go? Did you take them all away? Now I'm older and brave. And the children, they all left. They fled their family nest. And now we're all alone And the house don't feel like home anymore, anymore. Then I can feel it coming when the Monday morning blues, They last all through the week, I feel it on Sunday too. And I can feel it coming when my knees feel weak And I can not speak the truth. The days of being young, the days of being free. They're etched upon my face in every light that you see. The stories I could tell, the lies are told as well. What I wouldn't give to live it all again. And in my baby's eyes I lived it all again, The fear, the surprise, everything. In my baby's eyes I lived it all again And I wouldn't change anything. And in my baby's eyes I lived it all again And I wouldn't change anything.

The Streets

JAY-Z "The Blueprint"
Dear God.. how can I explain myself [J] Oh God bless me indeed When I'm so confused [J] Enlarge my territory [J] Place your love and protection over me at all times Help me! [J] Keep me away from evil Somebody answer me! [echoes] [J] Allow me not to cause pain [Jay-Z] Police in the background, screamin put the thing down That's how hard I was trying to put my thing down Si-rens ringin out, old ladies screamin out All this attention for me and I'm barely sixteen now .. it's feelin like a dream now Handcuffed, roughed up, I'm tossed in the bing now I'm lyin next to fiends now, that's the end of the story Let me bring y'all niggaz back to the very first scene now December 4th, a child is born Before I knew it, had my pops trousers on That's how we do it when the man of the house is gone You either, stand or fall, I chose to stand The hawk outside, so I blow my hand It's a cold cold world but I overstand Tryin to stay focused but I feel hopeless damn Can't cope with bein broke, I'm a man - c'mon [Chorus: R. Kelly] Son don't let these streets, get the best of you I will be right by your side, when you goin through Son just don't let it (just don't let it) Just don't let it (just don't let it) Just don't let it (just don't let it) .. get the best of you [R. Kelly] Late one night I was, rollin the streets Just, thinkin about what's goin on with me and trapped in this thug life, tryin to break free but this thug life just keeps callin me I'm livin life way too dangerously I'm drownin in my misery Looked in the mirror, there's my enemy Cause poppa never was a part of me Take one step at a time, mama said Sweet memories still remain in my head All of my life been lied to, misled Voices be like, 'Don't you wish you was dead' No ground to place my feet I feel the fire under me A way out is all I need Somebody, answer me! [Chorus + ad libs] [Jay-Z] Now the only thing left is more spirit to roam free .. cause ain't no goin home for me It's a cold cold world but I blew my hand A true first cause I knew that man I knew what he would do if I didn't draw first And I couldn't stand the thought of my momma steppin foot inside a church All I try to do is try to get up out the dirt Guess he's tryin to do the same, told me get up out his turf I wanted to talk to him, but that shit'd never work We was cut from the same cloth and what was under his shirt was his momma's rent, his young brother's clothes My nephew's food, and with that I suppose .. and with that I froze Now my life is frozen in time behind these iron folds And this story is told, for young soldiers who never choose the life we chose [Chorus + (ad libs)] [R. Kelly] Tears in my eyes as I look up, I'm tryin to hold back my pride but reality is screamin Gotta get a job cause mo-mma also screamin Streets are just like drugs, and it's like I'm out here fiendin Forget all the hits in the industry, cause ain't no exceptions in this game for me, look Neither God or my enemies, I choose God cause he understands, this young man with a thuggish heart Whole world in his hands but still torn apart Like I'm so close, but it's still so far Nightmares of me in a swervin car, ohhh No ground to place my feet (my feet) I feel the fire under me (heyyy) A way out is all I need (all I need) Somebody, answer me! [Chorus + ad libs]

Into Your Heart

ANTHONY CALLEA "Anthony Callea"
Why does it have to be so hard Does it have to hurt so much When i want you so bad When are you ever gonna realise All the love i feel for you inside And just won't go away Maybe you don't know it And maybe i don't show it No one else will ever do If you only knew The love i have for you [Chorus:] Is there something holding you from me Is there something i can't see What's holding you back Let me into your heart Cos i don't ever want to make you cry All i want to do is make you mine Don't be afraid Let me into your heart What makes me think about it constantly It's a special kind of chemistry When two hearts collide And how can a feeling be so strong That it makes me feel i can't go on I gotta get closer to you Maybe you don't know it And maybe i don't show it No one else will ever do If you only knew The love i have for you [Chorus] Oh, i can't deny it Don't want to hide the way i feel I just got to tell you baby Don't want to fight it Together we can make it real Tell me baby I need to know [Chorus]
