Temporarily Blind

Original and similar lyrics
Bet you can't tell I'm temporarily blind And how much more can I get sunburned? How much more can I get sunburned? Bet you can't tell I'm temporarily blind Isn't everyone? Isn't everyone? Isn't everyone? Isn't everyone? Isn't everyone? Isn't everyone? Isn't everyone? Isn't everyone? The thought of you waiting for someone Turn your back on this hating Turn your back on this hating Before I forget It took so long Turn your back on this waiting Turn your back on this waiting I need to know where you're coming from Turn your back on the framing Turn your back on the framing Who history doesn't teach It makes numb Turn your back on their taming Turn your back on their taming Yeah, they might let let you say it But it'd take all day to explain it (distorted and unintelligble)

Evening Gown

JERRY LEE LEWIS "Last Man Standing"
People think that I'm high class But I'm low down all the while People think that I'm crazy When I flash that California smile But I can still Paint the town All the colors of your evening gown While I'm waiting for your blonde hair to turn gray People say you're a drinker But I get sober half the time - mmm hmm People say you're a loser But I get lucky on the side - bet you do But I can still paint the town All the colors of your evening gown While I'm waiting for your blonde hair to turn gray All my life I've waited for someone who could show me where the bliss is All my life I've waited for someone who could take me past the kissing? People say I'm a loner - mmm hmm I like to get lost in a crowd... don't we all Oh, people say I'm a dresser - pretty sharp I wear my sport clothes way out loud - way out loud Yeah I can still - I can still paint the old town - town And I can shake it - shake it I can turn it upside down... upside down While I'm waiting ...waiting for your blonde hair - for your blond hair to turn gray - gray Girl I'll keep waiting Waiting for your blonde hair to turn gray I'll keep waiting - Just waiting for your blond hair to turn gray It will turn gray baby. Mmm that's right.

How Do I Turn You On

RONNIE MILSAP "40 #1 Hits [Virgin]"
I'd like to be a fly on your wall, When you think you all alone, Learn your secrets once and for all, Never tell no one. I can't read your mind, It's secret telling time. Tell me, how do I turn you on, Tell me, how do I turn you on, Oh, oh, oh maybe there's a game we could play, Is there something that you want, But you're too shy to say. How do I turn you on, Turn you on to me. Oh, I could take you a way, A million miles from here, When I'm getting close baby say, With a whisper in my ear. How to make you mine, It's secret telling time. Tell me, how do I turn you on, Tell me, how do I turn you on, Maybe there's a game we could play, Is there something that you want, But you're too shy to say, How do I turn you on, Turn you on to me. Just between you and me, I'm a little nervous too, But just beyond our wildest dreams, It's waiting for me, and it's waiting for you. Oh, oh, oh, maybe there's a game we can play, Is there something that you want, but you're too shy to say, How do I turn you on, Turn you on to me. (Repeat last line and fade)

What Was Really Me

INDIGO GIRLS
What Was Really Me is an Emily Salier song from around 1987. The version I'm transcribing is from Carboro, North Carolina, on 21 March 1988. What Was Really Me. I should have never crossed your path Funny how the things you want the most Should soon be taken back Slap my own hands like a child Stealing from the candy store I think I've taken to your smile And I hunger for your laugh Do the craziest things like look around When I know you're nowhere near me Break my back on a song Though I know you're not there to hear it Unanswered questions lying on the coffee table From a song I haven't finished since last summer Because I never could decide how much was gin And how much the sea Or other incidentals clouding what was really me Everything I am is bare feet and burning sand Waiting for the calm cool hand of the sea A madman of emotions waiting for the drug effect Of the reason and the intellect to comfort me Half the time I love you like I love the fall's first breeze And then you seem as distant to me as the skeletons of trees Far away outside my window But inside I think of you As if I thouht hard enough I'd know which way to turn And what to do. I'm quite sure I'll be alright We all live with some distraction It's just too bad mine will hang around All day and night Like an uninvited guest You can't turn away, try hard as you might Lord knows, I've tried I might let it go and take a long long run Quit my job and join the coastline baking in the sun (My tape cuts off here.)

The Twist

Dark Side Cowboys
Delusive proclaimers Chosen by the book to rule Given the power to heal Twisted, so hard to give up So easy to fall in A part of you is always Going to be Twisted, men are gaining listeners By telling ordinary stories In an unordinary way Thou shall not fail Twisted, and calling themselves wise men by Explaining a matter of course Twisted, using and giving in Twisted, worshipped by thousands of followers Guarded by missionary men Waiting for the promised days Waiting for their saviour Born by the virgin, aren't we all Men marry their ribs But we turn away, burn our brothers Forget the message in the prayers we say Twisted, face the wall Twisting, avenging spirits, bursting ground Turn your hand They will start the rain all over Waiting for a place to go Twisted, face the wall

The One You're Waiting On

ALAN JACKSON "Angels And Alcohol"
Is he tall? Is he handsome? Does he make enough and then some Does he miss you every minute that he's gone Is he funny? Is he witty? Does he tell you that you're pretty Did he hang the moon? Did he do no wrong? Is he Mr. Right, I wonder what he's like The one you're waiting on 'Cause there's an empty seat beside you And every guy here's trying to buy you Something to drink, but you just keep brushing them off You're watching whatever's on cable Swirling your glass on the table Wondering how long is too long Is he working late? Is he worth the wait? The one you're waiting on How many glasses of Cabernet How many minutes slip away How many times were you gonna check your phone I'm telling you if you were mine You wouldn't be sitting here counting the time You'd never spend a single moment alone I bet he don't get how lucky he is The one you're waiting on How many glasses of Cabernet How many boys can you turn away How long 'til you turn off your phone And look up at me, I'd be happy to be The one you're waiting on I'd be happy to be The one you're waiting on
