Hobos And Kings

Original and similar lyrics
And you see him by the railroad track each mornin Telling stories to the hobos sittin round And you wonder bout the past that he is hiding And the things that made his whole world tumble down And he tells them of his kingdom and his riches And all the sunken treasure that he's found And he tells them not to worry bout tomorrow That for all of them a new life would begin They would never see another day of sorrow Cause he always takes good care of all his friends And you see a look of hope on all their faces Though they've heard the story time and time again And you look into the eyes of those around you. And you know that they're believing every word. Cause when you look at him your looking in a mirror. And you make yourself believe the things you've heard. And all though he gets his stories from a bottle. You find yourself believing every word. And you realize that somehow he's a savior. In his tattered clothes to them he is a king. Cause he gives them one more day that they can live for. And the promise of the joy that it will bring. And you wonder what will happen in the morning. When they find that they no longer have their king. For his eyes are closed but he's no longer sleeping. And their king will no longer be around. And you'll see a look of fear on all their faces. As they see their hopes and dreams come tumbling down. So you quickly drink a story from the bottle. And all at once you now possess the crown. And they'll find you by the railroad track each morning. Telling stories to the hobos sittin round. And they'll wonder about the past that you are hiding. And the things that made your whole world tumble down. And you'll tell them of your kingdom ... fade

Mommy Help!

Heideroosjes "Fifi"
words: Marco Roelofs Mommy help, protect me from reality Tell me it's a dream about bestiality Mommy please, just one more bedtime story In which the good guys have the glory (CHORUS) Mommy is it really true All these cruel things we do Will I do such things when I am full-grown Will you protect me or am I in this alone Daddy, you're the strongest man on earth Held away the demons since my birth But outside in the streets, those demons are the law And I can't find your stories' heroes anymore (CHORUS) Daddy is it really true All these cruel things we do Will I do such things when I am full-grown Will you protect me or am I in this alone Daddy, today someone told me, many men are stronger then you Mommy, today someone told me, not all your stories are true As child I believed everything my parents told me, I think most children do. Now, I realize not all the nice stories were true. Life isn't always a dream, it can be a nightmare

Just To Be Different

JOE BUDDEN "Halfway House"
[Hook: Shinedown Sample] I feel like there is no need for conversation I wonder if the things I did were just to be different I would rather reveal myself than my situation I wonder if the things I did were just to be different [Verse 1: Joe Budden] (Going... going... gone) Look, look, look... See, I don't trus' no one (talk to 'em) So stubborn - I could dream a thousand paths, wake-up an' walk a ol' one. (Why?) An' I follow wherever it take me Insteada' wherever the crew go like Traylee. They see distinguished I see a nigga erasin' that fine line between crazy an' genius. Got the jewels out, see 'em on my Colorado shit (but...) I'd rather put the suit on an' not follow it. (Look) Ay'thing is perception, (I mean...) ay'thing is deception (but...) When niggas fuck wit' 'em 'cause I be the exception (Look) I got a warm reception way before any song hit I think too outside of the box ta' be cornered (I'm) Too real ta' be fickle Grounded, but too fly ta' meet a nigga in the middle Too big ta' be belittled. Wise way beyond my years, here's the motto of a manchild: Why try ta' fit in when you a standout? [Hook: Shinedown Sample] I feel like there is no need for conversation I wonder if the things I did were just to be different I would rather reveal myself than my situation I wonder if the things I did were just to be different [Verse 2: Joe Budden] Uh, you in that mood yet? Why not? Look... They said I had ta' make music that would have the kids feinin' Screamin', make nuttin' wit' a meanin' (But..) I ain't know the meanin'. They told me go Hollywood For a split-second thought I prolly' could But pollee on, would I be understood? Tol' me even if you not able ta' cop cable Ay'time you hit the club you better have a table. Tol' me they would take me out my worse Tol' me "image is everything" (So I...) Tol' 'em I'd obey my thirst (whoa!) Tol' me do what'chu gotta or what'chu on Hit the scene, make it rain - I told 'em I'm already in the storm. Ay'thing's in an uproar (whoa) They tol' me front, I said what for? (I mean whoa) Said it again, I said, fuck y'all! I won't succumb to all the stereotypes Won't sacrifice me for what the stereo hypes. They tol' me get in where you fit in - This is what's in demand now (So I...) Tol 'em why try ta' fit in when you a stand out? [Hook: Shinedown Sample] I feel like there is no need for conversation I wonder if the things I did were just to be different I would rather reveal myself than my situation I wonder if the things I did were just to be different [Verse 3: Joe Budden] Naw'mean? Yo... I understand some's off 'bout me, but nuttin's forced 'bout me I never gave a fuck of what a nigga thought 'bout me. (Oh!) I look down upon what some see as a must Maybe I'm regular an' the World needs to adjust. I mean I'm everyday people, hood, but still formal I'm normally abnormal, takin' life as a lesson. I'll leave the past in the past, Tomorrow's not promised An' Today's just a gift, I guess that's why it's the present. Did I outgrow me or shit jus' didn't stick The baggier my jeans, the more shit didn't fit. (But I!) Didn't quit, inspired by hate, even wit' homeless When you a star you already down wit' The Joneses. My thoughts outloud - (I mean...) Sometimes if the leader walks slow enough, he fuck aroun' gets lost in the crowd But he ain't gotta speed-up, ay'thing'll plan out (why?) 'Cause they'll spot'chu from far when you a standout. [Hook x2: Shinedown Sample] I feel like there is no need for conversation I wonder if the things I did were just to be different I would rather reveal myself than my situation I wonder if the things I did were just to be different

Temptation

SWOLLEN MEMBERS "Monsters In The Closet"
[Madchild] Yo, I'm talking about Temptation things that run through your head Like I wonder what my friend's girlfriends like in bed Yo, I bet sometimes she thinks of me instead Greed, That has to do with more than you need Sin, That's usually where temptation leads Turning into an addiction in an instant, take heed Feeding off your ego, cash confusion and sex That's why, like, every eight months You end up back with your ex For a couple days, and then remember Why it wasn't meant to be Go your separate ways and think I wonder what got into me You're done, but then another Eight months comes around eventually Vicious circle, I've done some things That aren't worth mentioning Temptation, made me do some things I regret Easy to fall into, but hard to forget Use to put the blame on others But that's a bunch of nonsense Now I try to focus and Just listen to my conscience [Prevail] Yo, I'm talking about Temptation and its relation to the human nation The obvious, money, drugs, sexual frustration How else can you explain public funding drain The escalating murder rate and the climb to fame It makes men touch parts that are not to be It makes women clutch parts that are a part of me So all that surface level services a day-to-day An ongoing basis in desire and display The first sensation recognized by script We can't detach ourselves from it once we get into it And why would we it feels better with the shadows closer Comfortable feeling of comparing yours to overdose Sometimes innocent and other times consequential 9 out of the ten times dun it's purely confidential Harder to handle when your crews talking in your ear Until you learn to abstain it draws near Temptation

Only God Knows Why

KID ROCK "Devil Without A Cause"
I've been sittin here Tryin to find myself I get behind myself I need to rewind myself Lookin for the payback Listen for the playback They say that every man bleeds just like me And I feel like number one Yet I'm last in line I watch my youngest son And it helps to pass the time I take too many pills it helps to ease the pain I made a couple of dollar bills, but still I feel the same Everybody knows my name They say it way out loud A lot of folks fuck with me It's hard to hang out in crowds I guess that's the price you pay To be some big shot like I am Out strecthed hands and one night stands Still I can't find love And when your walls come tumbling down I will always be around Yeah As it...hey And when your walls come tumbling down I will always be around People don't know about the things I say and do They don't understand about the shit that I've been through It's been so long since I've been home I've been gone, I've been gone for way too long Maybe I forgot all things I miss Oh somehow I know there's more to life than this I said it too many times And I still stand firm You get what you put in And people get what they deserve Still I ain't seen mine No I ain't seen mine I've been giving just ain't been gettin I've been walking that there line So I think I'll keep a walking With my head held high I'll keep moving on and only God knows why Only God Only God Only God knows why, why, why, why Only God...knows...why, why, why Only God knows why Take me to the river edge Take me to the river, hey hey hey

Everything You Didn't Do

JAMIE CULLUM "Momentum"
I will meet you in the city When it’s lit up by the stars In the moonlight we’re all pretty Cos it papers over scars Ever feel like you belong To a story you ain’t heard Doesn’t matter if it’s your song And you don’t know all the words [Chorus:] We should put up a sign We are citizens of all you can see We’ve got nothing but time Cos you’ll find Everything you didn’t do [x2] Is standing right in front of you A euphoric combination Of a thousand dirty hands There’s no need for complication On the shoulders we will stand It’s a patient exploration Where discovery is free There’s no need for explanations We exists where we can see [Chorus] I don’t even know what to say about every little thing Cos I’m tired and I want to go to sleep It’s so clear now [x6] That you’ll find Everything you didn’t do [x4] Is standing right in front of you
