Johnny Come Lately

Original and similar lyrics
I'm sorry you couldn't make it You could have seen him, so weathered and dated He was a Johnny Come Lately And I know that you would hate him If you'd seen his botanical leanings First prize exhibit and all down to good spirit He was a Johnny Come Lately And I know that you would hate me If I envied the things that he spoke of How I envied the things that he thought of He was a Johnny Come Lately And I know that you would hate me If I told you that I made some time and stayed behind To find out how to make a garden grow Where the sun no longer shines If I asked too many questions and I stayed behind To find out how to make a garden grow But he never ever gave away the secret of this godforsaken soil He didn't need us, just tempted and teased us You could have been here, wishing you were here This was a Johnny Come Lately And I know that you would hate me He was a Johnny Come Lately And I know that you would hate me If I told you that I made some time and stayed behind To find out how to make a garden grow Where the sun no longer shines He assured me that the seeds you sold were sound But I must have cast them all on stony ground And now the sun won't shine I must have asked too many questions D And stayed behind to find out how to make a garden grow But he never ever gave away the secret of this godforsaken soil.

I Know You (Spoken Word)

Henry Rollins
I Know You I know you you were too short you had bad skin you couldn't talk to them very well words didn't seem to work they lied when they came out of your mouth you tried so hard to understand them you wanted to be part of what was happening you saw them having fun and it seemed like such a mystery almost magic made you think that there was something wrong with you you'd look in the mirror trying to find it you thought that you were ugly and that everyone was looking at you so you learned to be invisible to look down to avoid conversation the hours days weekends ah the weekend nights, alone where were you in the basement? in the attic? in your room? working some job? just to have something to do just to have a place to put yourself just to have a way to get away from them a chance to get away from the ones that made you feel so strange and ill-at-ease inside yourself did you ever get invited to one of their parties you sat and wondered if you would go or not for hours you imagined the scenarios that might transpire they would laugh at you if you would know what to do if you would have the right things on if they would notice that you came from a different planet did you get all brave in your thoughts like you were going to be able to go in there and deal with it and have a great time did you think that you might be 'the life of the party' that all these people were gonna talk to you and you would find out that you were wrong that you had a lot of friends and you weren't so strange after all? did you end up going did they mess with you did they single you out did you find out that you were invited because they thought you were so weird yeah, I think I know you you spent a lot of time full of hate a hate that was pure as sunshine a hate that saw for miles a hate that kept you up at night a hate that filled your every waking moment a hate that carried you for a long time yes I think I know you you couldn't figure out what they saw and the way they lived home was not home your room was home a corner was home the place they weren't- that was home I know you you're sensitive and you hide it, because you fear getting stepped on one more time it seems that when you show a part of yourself that is the least bit vulnerable someone takes advantage of you one of them steps on you they mistake kindness for weakness but you know the difference you've been the brunt of their weakness for years and strength is something you know a bit about because you had to be strong to keep yourself alive you know yourself very well now and you don't trust people you know them too well you try to find that 'special person' someone you can be with someone you can touch someone you can talk to someone you won't feel so strange around and you found that they don't really exist you feel closer to people on movie screens yeah, I think I know you you spend a lot of time daydreaming and people have made comment to that effect telling you that you're 'self-involved' and 'self-centered' but they don't know, do they about the long nightshifts alone about the years of keeping yourself company all the nights you wrapped your arms around yourself so you could imagine someone holding you the hours of indecision self-doubt the intense depression the blinding hate the rage that made you stagger the devastation of rejection well maybe they do know but if they do they sure do a good job of hiding it it astounds you how they can be so smooth how they seem to pass through life as if life itself was some divine gift and it infuriates you to watch yourself with your apparent skill, and finding every way possible to screw it up for you, life is a long trip terrifying and wonderful birds sing to you at night the rain and the sun the changing seasons are true friends solitude is a hard won ally faithful and patient yeah, I think I know you

Surf And Die

Walter Becker "11 Tracks Of Whack"
Earthbound to Johnny boy just picked up your message 'Bout those Balinese ikats you thought I might buy Now your voice on my machine is more alive than what you are Since your daredevil hang glider fell out of the sky Now Armand's looked all over but he can't find your car keys Were they under the tire? Were they under the seat? Because as it stands now your beloved white Aires Is fair game for the vandals up on Makapuu Street And your grandmother's number, we know it's here somewhere But Suze can't seem to find it, now she's losing control And so what about her, and little Eldon and Layla And that hypothetical spectre, your gilt-edged soul Which defied many perils, in the face of all reason And in so many settings and for all your young years Insisting on pure freedom for its too-short season Riding high on its ration of enchantment and fear Over the hill and into the next meadow and on and on and on In a near random universe there are still certain combinations Picked out from all other possible ones Which, when given some time and the just-right circumstances Not too far from the earth or too close to the sun They will dance and they'll spin in the embrace of the trade winds Playing havoc with the hearts and the upturned faces down below Until the laws of curved spacetime, susponed without warning Kick back in with a vengeance for the last act of the show Going too far too fast in that final wing over As your glider comes tumbling out of the clouds And you clutch at your chest but the chute never opens And they find you there tangled in that white nylon shroud When we get Grandma's number I think I'll just say to her Your Johnny's home for Christmas, it was a hell of a ride And I know that some day you'll be showing me those blankets All covered in glory on the hereafter side, saying There was never any question, it was always all or nothing Surf and/or die

Lost Johnny

MOTORHEAD "Motörhead"
You only get a single chance The rules are very plain, The truth is well concealed inside The details of the game, You can hear it coming, You can see it from afar, It's pale and it glimmers Like a faded movie star And out there in the castle, They're trying to make us scream, By sticking thumb tags in a flash And cancelling the dream, Can you find the Valium, Can you bring them soon, Lost Johnny's out there, Baying at the moon The time has come for you to choose, You'd better get it right, Pulling girls with sharp white teeth Are waiting in the night, But you want to really get some, It surely can't be hard, There's always trouble lurking When you leave your own backyard Underneath the city, The alligators sing, Of how the fool he cannot dance, When someone cuts the strings, Can you find the morphine, Try to be so brief, Lost Johnny's out there, Looking for relief That laddie looks so evil, And you know he really tries, But every time he makes a play, That battle compromise, And shall I find their underwear, From a store where no-one goes, She makes it big in dugs, On the strength of what she shows, And here inside the waiting room, The radio still screams, And we're shooting children, To murder all young things, Can you find your credit card, For god's sake make it quick, Lost Johnny's out there, Trying to turn a trick

Seed Will Grow

Ms. Dynamite "Little Deeper"
(feat. Kymani Marley) [Verse One (Kymani Marley):] Yo, Oh, At first glance its like cupid hit, Mesmorised by her thighs and her hips. So, she went ahead and find a man wit' some chips, And left school when she cop da whip. Caught in the game, Locked in the speedin' lane. Livin a life for money, drugs and fame, But true love is what she can't entertain. And every chance she get she's given the blame. Then she askin' why, I told she was livin a lie. When I told her she started to cry. Don't just sit and let life pass you by, And I slowly wiped the tears from her eyes. [Chorus:] I told her to take it slow, Girl give it time to flow, And from a seed to a flower you'll grow. So many seeds on the street, No sunshine but always heat. And lives are lost at every heartbeat. I told her take it slow, Girl give it time to flow, And from a seed to a flower you'll grow. So many seeds on the street, No sunshine but always heat. Drownin' in poverty and deceit, But black roses grow from concrete. [Verse Two (Ms Dynamite):] He got a family to feed, So every night he out on the street, Shottin poison to young mothers and youths dem, Coz he feel it the only way to keep his peeps on they feet, Makes ends meet, And gets his own up out of poverty. Until one night, He came home to find his mother cry, she pointed to the floor and he saw a trail of his supply, She led him to his room to find his brother on his bed, Track marks, Needle in his arm and stone cold dead. And suddenly, They all flashed before his eyes, The kids that he sold to, And they mothers cries. Every child is someones child You affa a mind what u do, Cos Karma gunna bring the drama back on you. Do what you gotta do, But nigga when it comes to them youths, There is no excuse, Our future that, We supposed to nurture that, Nah lettin nuttin or nobody hurt that. Do what you gotta do, But nigga when it comes to them youths, There is no excuse, Our future that, We supposed to nurture that, Nah lettin nuttin or nobody hurt that. [Repeat Chorus]

So Far Away

GOO GOO DOLLS "Superstar Car Wash"
Why do you stare me down Am I wrong Should I turn and kiss the ground And I never felt that way I ain't the one and you know I don't come from such a place And I didn't get those things Those things that you can't grow You say that it's all my fault And I don't need to know Tell me something I don't know And I'll find that I'm always looking 'round behind me You said that it's all been said before Now I find that there's something I don't know And I hate your attitude I ain't scared at all cuz it don't matter what you do And I'll turn around to see the truth You're tearing it down, yeah, you're bringing it down And it's all on you And I didn't get those things Those things that you can't grow You say that it's all my fault And I don't need to know Tell me something I don't know And I'll find that I'm always looking 'round behind me You said that it's all been said before Now I find that there's something I don't know And I know I don't know (Rock and roll) And I'll stay there If you break enough glass and there's no one to hear And your heart's full of hate cuz your mind's full of fear Let it go Oh, so far away So far away So far away (Something I don't know) Oh, so far away So far away So far away
