BRENDAN JAMES lyrics - The Day Is Brave

Dirty Living

Original and similar lyrics
I said to my brother Life is not free He said call me weak, But for once I'm proud of me What you proud of, who you stand for Not the Lord above Dirty living got you giving never enough My sister named Maria She caught a bright, early sun With sin, and with love Like a tattoo on her arm She couldn't find no separation Between loving life and love Dirty living got her giving never enough Blame it on the doctor, He never healed your pleas Blame it on your mother, She never saw your needs Looking up to heaven, I tell you Sinner, you've got to believe Live like a fool, You'll get what's coming to you Like an angel, came his mother She said one more second chance She pleaded with Jesus said, Make my boy a man Though he loved her, he abused her Stole her wallet, jewels and used her Dirty living got him digging for a resolution She walked with less pride Than one tiger, no stripes She cried like a baby On the first of newborn nights She never let nobody tell a girl More loving brings more pain Dirty living got her breaking Hearts and souls the same Blame it on the doctor, He never healed your pleas, yeah Blame it on your mother, She never saw your needs Looking up to heaven, I tell you Sinner, you've got to believe Ya live like a fool, You'll get what's coming to you In in the back streets of their broken town On a corner with no name These two, unworthy, two unfaithful wanderers Meet face to face They fall in love, they run away They find they're both one in the same But it backfires, with their lying and Unwillingness to change Blame it on the doctor, He never healed your pleas, yeah Blame it on your mother, She never saw your needs You looking up to heaven, I tell you Sinner, you've got to believe Live like a fool, You'll get what's coming to you

Another Life

DONELL JONES "Journey Of A Gemini"
Baby you know I love you But you know right now, you know it’s just getting to be too much Ooh yeah I really don’t wanna go Listen... It was back in 99 I was a real nigga Took you and your shorty in just to deal witcha In the beginning it was rough Cause sumtin was missing that he love He’s always acting up Baby I’ve had enough Don’t need no child support cause I provided Bought him anything that he wanted you can’t deny it I’ve always treated him like He’s coming between our love What yawl got I can’t mess up [Chorus Repeat 2x] Maybe in another life We can be together Promise that next time won’t leave you ever Maybe in another life The sun will shine forever With you in my life no more stormy weather I got to walk away Look at the big picture A son needing his mother Is the real issue I’m not a selfish guy You know I want you in my life It’s killing me inside Don’t wanna say goodbye Can’t even show affection cause he don’t like it Every time we get romantic we gotta hide it The way we living aint right He’s coming between our love What yawl got I can’t mess up [Repeat Chorus 2x] Listen to me lady... I can’t come between a son and a mother It’s unfortunate that this is over You don’t leave me any choice This could end up in divorce Take a nigga straight to court This decision is the best yeah….. And I’m sorry it had to end this way (know what I’m talkn’ bout) In this relationship I can not stay I can see that this is it It aint nothing we can fix Should be living for you kid And maybe in another life [Repeat Chorus]

I'm A Fool

J. COLE
[Verse 1] Yea, I’m a fool, hundred thousand for the jewels Last year we killed the game and left y’all browsing for the clues Old niggas out here search for that fountain of the youth Money talks and hoes say its an arousing point of view Don’t make me act a fool like Malcom before the suit How could you justify, I testified up in this booth? And then, throughout the years, spilled tears and shared truths Somehow they love a nigga better when he talk about his loot Chain like a kelidescope, see life through a wider scope Therefore, I know this necklace really represents a noose Still I hit the jeweler how much racks to make me cooler I just play the game homie, I ain’t make the rules up Started from the bottom same way you lace your shoes up So if I’m blowing cake, blame it on the place I grew up Where niggas had nothing but dreams and television Got no plans of seeing hell or prision You can tell I’m living, right? Never said I’m living right [Hook] And they like Boy you a fool [x3] And they like [x3] Boy you a fool, Boy you a fool And they like, And they like [Verse 2] I’m a fool, hundred thou to go to school So much debt left me and my mama damn near drowning in a pool First to go to college, they say knowledge is a tool But these hoes on campus make a young nigga drool So we party, skip class, get ass and talk cool Meanwhile, she back home working hard I use that as my fuel So I finally graduated but I’m sad to say that I ain’t learn a fucking thing except the game and how to play it I’m a fool, no scuffs on my shoes No cuts I don’t bruise, so fuck y’all reviews She told me Cole I love you roll with you way before the riches But you way too educated to be calling women bitch and calling brothas niggas Pardon if I cross a line but all this time Knew you was different than all them other niggas I responded to her “please don’t put me on a pedestal Cuz I know better and I’m still a fool” [Hook]

Up

JASON MRAZ "Life Is Good"
A little like Gene Wilder now Coming out of the tower now In a glass elevator that could take you all the way to the sky Ain't trying to fool ya now I got nothing to lose and no how So be in it with the limitless image of the intimate figure that you're getting is love All you need is love Ain't it nice to get out of here Already out of the atmosphere Well if the glass ever shattered well it wouldn't really matter it's a love that is lifting us up All you need is love We're going up, up, up Flying away We're taking the higher route We're taking the ceiling out We're going up, we're flying away Never coming down because we're living it up, living it up, yeah What happens when your light goes out No ones there to give you mouth to mouth Don't let the break down trouble you and claim that a brother need's a hero now Cause I know, you know, because once you know, you'll always know It's your own, your own, your own love that gets you where you wanna go We're going up, we're flying away Never coming down Taking the ceiling out We're going up, we're flying away We're taking the higher route That's cause we're living it up, living it up Knowing it's good And I don't mean good enough When it's really love Well you can just rise above anything it's our destiny A little like Gene Wilder now Coming out of the tower now In a glass elevator that could take you all the way to the sky We're going up We're flying away We're taking the higher route We're taking the ceiling out We're going up We're flying away Never coming down Because we're living it up, living it up All you need is love Love is all you need

Inside Out

KATIE COSTELLO "Kaleidoscope Machine"
Just the other day as I was walking I felt someone mimicking my steps I jumped and fled yet however later I found it was just a lonely silhouette I should've stayed a little later And cut my hair a hair more short Made my lips real red and worn the yellow dress Fight when all I did was turn We're scared of the strangest things Yet we regret them with more shame, blame, fame, we're insane When all we need is to think, try, reach, love, live die And is it so hard to just let go and know you're better off Living inside out Just the other day as I was swimming I felt a wave rush up and take my breath Before I could resign and drown - a mermaid With green eyes suggested that I dive I should've stayed a little later And cut my hair a hair more short Made my lips real red and worn the yellow dress Fight when all I did was turn We're scared of the strangest things Yet we regret them with more shame, blame, fame, we're insane When all we need is to think, try, reach, love, live die And is it so hard to just let go and know you're better off Living inside out Break the promises and the words that surrender you to this trend Basing what you know on your own outer skin Try living inside out; defeat what you know For the sake of a better mind, no outside in We're scared of the strangest things Yet we regret them with more shame, blame, fame, we're insane When all we need is to think, try, reach, love, live die And is it so hard to just let go and know you're better off Living inside out Living inside out Living inside out Living inside out

Tessie

DROPKICK MURPHYS "Tessie"
Tessie is the Royal Rooters rally cry Tessie is the song they always sung Tessie echoed April through October nights After serenading Stahl, Dineen and Young Tessie is a maiden with the sparkling eyes Tessie is a maiden with the love She doesn't know the meaning of her sight She's got a comment full of love And sometimes when the game is on the line Tessie always carried them away Up the road from Third Base to Huntington The boys will always sing and sway Two! Three! Four! Tessie, Nuff Ced McGreevy shouted We're not here to mess around Boston, you know we love you madly Hear the crowd roar to your sound Don't blame us if we ever doubt you You know we couldn't live without you Tessie, you are the only, only, only The Rooters showed up at the Grounds one day They found their seats had all been sold McGreevy led the charge into the park Stormed the gates and put the game on hold The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright Boston's tenth man could not be wrong Up from Third Base to Huntington They sang another victory song Two! Three! Four! Tessie, Nuff Ced McGreevy shouted We're not here to mess around Boston, you know we love you madly Hear the crowd roar to your sound Don't blame us if we ever doubt you You know we couldn't live without you Tessie, you are the only, only, only The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright Boston's tenth man could not be wrong Up from Third Base to Huntington They sang another victory song Two! Three! Four! Tessie, Nuff Ced McGreevy shouted We're not here to mess around Boston, you know we love you madly Hear the crowd roar to your sound Don't blame us if we ever doubt you You know we couldn't live without you Boston, you are the only, only, only Don't blame us if we ever doubt you You know we couldn't live without you Red Sox, you are the only, only, only
