Don't Look Back

Original and similar lyrics
Oh, there is a place where the wild men go, When it's late at night and on the radio, They're telling everybody, stay at home, It's no time for you to be alone, It is a place on the edge of town, Just shining in a hell-fire light (they're waiting), And if you're there, keep going on, They're waiting deep inside, I'm telling you, Don't look back, women in the red and black, Don't look back, they're going to take your heart away, I'm telling you don't look back, women in the red and black, Don't look back, they're going to steal your heart away, I should have known better; Well Jimmy Pellin was a friend of mine, But he went out there one too many times, I saw him running down the railroad track, And I tell you boys he ain't coming back, The early morning is their favourite time, To find somebody out on their own (they're waiting), They're waving arms and flashing lights, Standing out on the road, I'm telling you, Don't look back, women in the red and black, Don't look back, they're going to take your heart away, I should have known better, I should have known better, So if you're going to the edge of town, Don't lose in a hell-fire light, (they're waiting) And if you're passing, keep going on, They're waiting there tonight, I'm begging you, Don't look back, don't look back, I beg you don't look back, Women in the red and black, Don't look back, They're going to steal your heart away, I should have known better -- don't look back, I should have known better -- don't look back, I should have known better -- don't look back, I should have known better -- don't look back, I should have known better.

Better Man

JAMIE CAMPBELL BOWER
You come crying to me like I’m somebody else And then you leave me alone to gather dust on the shelf… of love Showed you all of my faults and gave you all I had And then you threw it away and told me to be a man But I was You wont be waiting and I’ll give the ghost of what we had So leave me shaking alone You said forever Am I supposed to leave that and just let go So now it’s never from here And every little step I take and every single move I’ve ever made And even though my heart still aches Makes me a better man And look at all the mess I’ve made and I still think of you in better days And even though my heart still aches it makes me a better man You come crying at me like I’m somebody else And then you you leave me alone to gather dust on the shelf…. of love I showed you all of my faults And gave you all that I had And then you threw it away and told me to be a man But I was You won’t be waiting and I’ll give the ghost of what we had So leave me shaking alone We said forever Am I supposed to leave that and just let go So now it’s never from here And every little step I take and every single move I’ve ever made And even though my heart still aches It makes me a better man And look at all the mess I’ve made and I still think of you in better days And even though my heart still aches it makes me a better man You won’t be waiting You won’t be waiting You won’t be waiting You won’t be waiting You won’t be waiting And I’ll give the ghost of what we had So leave me shaking alone You said forever Am I supposed to leave that and just let go So now it’s never from here And every little step I take and every single move I’ve ever made And even though my heart still aches it makes me a better man And look at all the mess I’ve made and I still think of you in better days And even though my heart still aches it makes me a better man A better man

Wide Open

JASON ALDEAN "Wide Open"
The corner cafe, She scrapes some quarters off the table, Says thanks yeah now maybe I'll be able, To get that black Mercedes, I've been saving for, The other girls say, You outta undue a couple buttons, Start showing off a little something, She says naw you go ahead, Think I'd rather stay poor, See I'm just making rent, She said this ain't where my road ends [Chorus] This may not be my town, It'll do for now, Til I can figure out, Who I am, Where I'm going, Shes slinging eggs and bacon, With a college education Just hanging out and waiting, For a better plan, Shes ok not knowing, Shes young, And the worlds wide open. There's a rusty old ford, Lives out back behind the diner, Sitting there waiting on her to make her mind up, It tends to sling a little gravel, And take her who knows where, Maybe head out west, It's in Gods hands I guess. [Chorus] She throws down that apron, Takes the money shes been making, Her life's out there waiting, Got a better plan, That's where shes going, Shes young, And the worlds wide open.

Arizona

JAMIE O'NEAL
He promised her a new and better life out in Arizona Underneath the blue never ending sky, Swore that he was gonna Get things in order, he'd send for her When he left her behind, it never crossed her mind... (Chorus) There is no Arizona No painted desert, no Sedona If there was a Grand Canyon she could fill it up With the lies he's told her but they don't exist Those dreams he sold her she'll wake up and find There is no Arizona She got a postcard with no return address Postmark tombstone It said I don't know where I'm going next but when I do I'll let you know May June July she wonders why Shes still waiting, she'll keep waiting... (chorus) Each day the sun sets in to the west her heart sinks lower In her chest and friends keep asking when shes going Finally she tells them don't you know..... (chorus repeat 1 time) He promised her a new and better life out in Arizona...

Do It

Delbert McClinton "Genuine Houserockin"
Verse 1 Well I was feeling like hell and I was not getting well, so I went in for a physical check, and when I got to the doc, it was a hell of a shock, He said boy you're a physical wreck. He said your livers all swollen and your stomachs got a hole in it from drinking too much for too long, and that's a good indication you got bad circulation cause your blood pressures almost gone. And you got no reflexes in your solar plexus when I tap you on the top of your knee, and your pulse ain't steady and your lungs are ready to collapse anytime you breath. And at the rate you're going all the symptoms showing, boy you'll never live to get old. So I came up with a plan to make you healthy again, but boy you've got to do what you're told. CHORUS If you dig it, don't do it, and if you like it better leave it alone, and if it's too much fun that ought to clue you son that you're probably doing something that's wrong. And if it feels good to you, don't let it fool you cause you're playing in the danger zone. I kept waiting and waiting for the doctor to finish but he kept going on and on. Verse 2 He told me cut out the booze and put those muscles in use and don't be smoking no cigarettes, and you know love with a stranger might be fun but it's just like Russian Roulette. Get the grease out your diet boil it don't fry it and don't you eat no more barbecue. You better get you a pen I ain't gonna tell you again cause there's a whole lot more you gotta' do. Chorus Vrese 3 He told me cut out the meat(sweets?), and don't be crampin your feet and then he pointed toward Italian shoes. And he said boy lookit here you're gonna' damage your ear, listening to loud rock and rhythm and blues. and if a rabbit won't eat it brother you don't need it, that's the rules of your new menu. I wouldn't tell you no lie cause you will certainly die and there's a whole lot more you gotta' do. Chorus to end You better stand up straight, you better lose some weight Your postures a terrible disgrace You ought to suck in your gut; you need to pull in your butt And there's whole lot more you gotta' do.

Well she let me play Oregon Trail But her breath had a foreign smell Only talk to Courteney when I'm bored as hell And then Porches tail, was lying ass cheating ass whore for real Behind the bungalows, tongueing up different dudes Skipping school, kissing who? Damn you at this nigga fool And to this day ain't shit improved My bad luck with the women got me stuck in dilemmas and [Hook] [Verse 3: BeYoung] We was going on 3 years this summer Deep in still love her Never ever did I see this here coming Queasy in the stomach, knee deep, started buggin Seen this would lead me into something This the start, homecoming 06' Got word that she had a friend she was close with Spending dough with, heard he was quarterback for Howard Paranoid I call he back for hours The phone calls slowing up, Holidays no showing up Her momma say she goin nuts, so I already know what's up Last I heard she was in the campus, letting niggas tap her When she swore she was going just to get her masters First plane heading to the campus, Crashed in the classes And I'm askin, Where's room one eight two Bustin through the door, seen jeans to the ankle Daaamn uh [Hook]
