Attica Blues lyrics - Attica Blues

It's Alright

Original and similar lyrics
Sits in her chair as she listens to '87 All those hours spent stargazing in the Bastions of the night Prancing and the dancing As opportunities knocked within celebrity Corridors I could have been famous you know She mutters to her young ones who have heard It too many times before But it's alright Cos that was then and this is now It's alright Cos youthful yesterfun is not tomorrows way He stumbles over debris of last night's Take-out Tasting memories of arms around him Not like the nights before Things were different then Anyway It's been a long night out But those old moves don't seem to drop the Same way they did back then But it's alright Cos that was then and this is now It's alright Cos youthful yesterfun is not tomorrows way He's late, he's late again But this time there's no excuse for him to give As he approached to find her standing there Seems my time with you was spent waiting for the right moment Waiting for that break you always went on about But no more 'cos to stay... and wait... Would mean our lives will never change Sits in her chair as she listens to '87 All those hours spent stargazing in the Bastions of the night But it's alright But it's alright But it's alright But it's alright...

My Father's Chair

RICK SPRINGFIELD "Tao"
(Springfield) My father's chair's still standing there All alone since the long night Now it's three years on and I still feel He'll come home, we'll be alright So where's this healing time brings I was told the pain would ease But it still hurts like the first night That night my brother, my mother and I Were looking up at a distant star And wishing we could reach that far And back in the house And alone for the first time We told each other we cared We avoided my father's chair I watch my family, we hold on We are strong and we'll be alright The clock continues counting down, All the while And every child will share the long night But do the spirits meet again Why am I still so filled with doubt Is my soul everlasting And the far distant future When I knew you'd be gone Came too fast and stays too long Why do they leave the weak of spirit And take the strong But wherein the world turns sour And I get sick from the smell And I can't find no comfort there I climb into my father's chair

California Dreamin'

Dream Warriors
[Featuring GangStarr] [Chorus] the life you is walking through such a bitch day in to day out the same old thing kid [Verse 1 Spek] bring me to the end and I'll be me open up your eyes wide so you can see it's thick to be me how I kick my rhymes down pat within the circle how we do when we kick that fact but where's the meaning? I take it one night by one night but where's the meaning? I take it one day by every day I pick a rhyme I chose and put it number one inside my placement so look to find the signs inside my basement no tears sell us full of samples with ample time to loop it's just the beats from the dead from my head with my troop and it be cool if all the time was like studio time but days are long enough for Spek with the rest of my time I think I'm manic depressive and not agressive enough you can try to be hard but damn you still won't be rough life is whack for the ?? life is phat if you flow life is waitin' for a deal when you like got no dough [Chorus] [Verse 2 - Spek, Lu] in the middle of my nights I check my late night flicks I'm up at night trying to write and late night I get my kicks that is I'm out to get my main feature the low budget picture in my room and in between I write scriptures picture this the day's just a claender's notch and every kid becomes the one who wanna ride it on the crotches and when I'm finished when my flick is almost done when my rhyme is half done when I check a late re-run I lose to the groove soul sounds soothe me well sometimes my mind wonders sometimes heaven could be hell I pass the fools who has never known my name when I think about the deal sometimes I need someone to blame I add members to the show who knows a fan for the ones that wanna capture the essence of level to the hip-hop their directions they groke who's representing us? the critics holy smoke [Chorus] [Verse 3 - Lu] place text in images replacing old versions documents displayed as homemade glue without a clue you your loophole is deckin' in the halls to ring bells in fear of losing clientels my work place is infinite but can't plan it like my screens appearance is translusive but with a hard ??? I display I cruhser critics as easy as... skip this step if you wanna control key available to only keyboards you can't afford Q he's the shift he's the roller can't understand your education is basic (science) so many words and everything is being said yet people get pissed when people wanna your way but not their way so which way's the right way I'm going hungry in the belly of the beast that uncleans the serpent I walk like the lion I'm a leash [Chorus]

You Lift Me Up

EVERYTHING BUT THE GIRL "Worldwide"
When the light fades on a long bad day, I sometimes weaken. Then I turn to see you've been waiting for me, I know I'm not beaten. 'Cause you lift me up, you do. Coming home sometimes I catch the headlines. It's been raining since Saturday night. And the trains run late, I'm stuck at Notting Hill Gate. But you'll make it alright. 'Cause you lift me up (you make it alright), you do. Such a little thing, our love won't make the world alright, but love makes sense of life and that's enough, at least tonight. So late at night maybe, when you call me baby, the day will just fall away. 'Cause you lift me up, you do.

Waiting For The Bus

ERASERHEADS
i've standing here waiting for the bus on a Saturday laundry on my back ultraviolet rays like i'm posing for a shot in a magazine what the hell does it mean? refrain i'm a travelling man straight from the car i'm a thousand miles away from my number one fan my folks are getting tight won't let me out at night you can't avoid the complications when there's no reason at all when the right hand stikes we fly i'll drink my beer i'll wipe my tears southbound in the sky chorus another crime another reason gets you everyday the only time that you can talk you ain't nothing to say well i'm caught up in a stupid game thai i can't play it's just a waste of time but i'm in anyway i've been sitting here watching the signs too many cars at night belching in the moonlight we're doing ninety as the sky turns to grey the people look like bees buzzing by the highway the wheels are rolling like a rolling stone alone i choose the road less traveled on now i'm lying here waiting for the day on the second deck dreaming of a girl from a fairytale chain around my neck a ride is all it takes but pains get in the way refrain chorus chorus i'm in it anyway hey i'm in it anyway
