Dar Williams lyrics - Honesty Room

In Love But Not At Peace

Original and similar lyrics
Love took a long time, it followed me here And it landed on light feet, and it whispered in my ear Love spoke of my past as a valuable test And smiled, and said she who loves last loves best 'Cause you know life is hard, but now you also know your mind, So now you're going out to love, but on your own side this time Where you still think of famine, and you still dig up train fare And you won't mind the wrinkles, 'cause you know how they got there In love but not at peace In love but not at peace. Once for me love was the boat inside of a bottle, It felt like a gondola ride, When you float with the nicknacks, and you don't hear a sound Where the fish never lived, and you don't miss the ground And the moon hangs above like a Valium pill And I say I'll be fine, but I don't think that I will But today I got work, and I like it that way It's a case of a still life gone cin¨¨ma verit¨¦ In love but not at peace In love but not at peace. And I still need the beauty of words sung and spoken And I live with the fear that my spirit will be broken And that's the way I thought it would be That's the way I always wanted it to be. So I'll keep you wondering what time I'm arriving And you'll drive me crazy with your backseat driving And I'll talk in my sleep and you'll steal all the covers We'll argue it out and we'll call ourselves lovers And I'll stay in my body and you'll stay in your own 'Cause we know that we're born and we're dying alone. So we turn out the light while the sirens are screaming And we kiss for the waking, and then join the dreaming. In love, but not at peace In love, but not at peace.

A Pillow Of Winds

PINK FLOYD "Meddle"
A cloud of eider down Draws around me softening the sound Sleepy time in my life With my love by my side And she's breathing low And the candle dies. When night comes down you lock the door The boot falls to the floor As darkness falls and waves roll by The seasons change The wind is raw. Now wakes the hour that sleeps the swan Behold a dream, the dream is gone Green fields A cold rain is falling Near the golden dawn. And deep beneath the ground The early morning sounds and I go down Sleepy time in our life With my love by my side And she's breathing low And I rise like a bird In the haze and the first rays touch the sky And the night winds die.

I Wanna Go Back

KID ROCK "Early Mornin' Stoned Pimp"
Cause I remember way back when Got kicked out the crib and had a place to stay in the Clem With some friends George and Jay It was a funky fresh crew and I'd DJ What a shock it was to be on the steps Comin from a nice home now livin in the projects No regrets cause I learned alot And I earned alot in the parking lot Doin dirt for the O.Gs slangin rock They used to call me that little white kid Who could rock on the two turntables And that aint no fable Watchin' Eddie Murphy instead of Clark Gable My whole life style switched Hoss Puttin in hours at the 76 car wash But I could never wait for them weekends to come Dum ditty dum ditty ditty dum dum Boom, chick boom, the bass went On turntables fuckin it up in Duke's basement Groove time productions, we kept the jam jumpin Open up your ears Im tryin to tell you somethin And give some love back to those who loved me 206 Court street and my second mom Tracy Little Keesha and Cole My mellow blow, and my homegirl Flo Rock round see, you could find me some But I kept my tables in the crib when I wasnt in the club Tom Rich and Mike Shafer used to give me rides And buy me groceries when I didn't have no paper And Im grateful for this Sometimes I look back and it's these times I miss Making demos on my old four track Sometimes I cant help but think, I Wanna Go Back I Wanna Go Back [x2] Got kicked out again for bein fly Got invited to stay with Tony and Eli An' they treated me like brothers R-I-P to their cool ass mother An my brother din dada For the homies up here I still gotta lot of love I wanna go back, way back To change things and bring y'all back Im pourin beer out for y'all Im singin I saw the light from my cousin Paul Life brings alot of tragedy I look around at times and its so sad to see A wasted life, or a broken home But all I can do is take care of my own I feel so alone like a stranger But sometimes I express my love through my anger And I lost alot of friends for this Blackman, T-Bone, Ernest KDC, and Chris And the rest of the Beast crew I aint sayin that Im awe, but I still got love for you Cause I remember how it used to be Make way motherfuckers beast crew's in the party To the right and to the left Many black men and Funk Daddy Def Stef Cause sometimes I feel blessed for sure To a been a part of one of raps last great tours Ice Cube, Too Short, D-Nice, yo yo Kid Rock and it don't stop I Wanna Go Back [x3] I remember litte Robert, cause I stayed with him I used ta go and see Campbell, when I need a trim And when times got grim and I lost my way, I used to get blown of with Reve Bumpin' shoulders and slappin' hands Willie Knight had a disco, right in his basement man Them New Haven jams Me and Blackman running crazy scams, Not a black or white thing, a wrong or right thing Just makin' that money, and pullin them honies Spandex shorts and the halter tops Slanging them rocks, runnin' from the cops The only white kid walkin' round on the block, Cruisin' in Amp's low ridin' ragtop Go see Howard for what ya need Underage buyin' forties and bags of weed Late night liquor from Bubba Coles People used to say, Rock you got soul Had a studio budget from the cocaine loot Chuck D and Murph were the original three Now Richard D and Cracker are down with me I got a studio record and a taste of fame But when I roll throught the Clem it's all the same Even though things change, you know I ain't forgot Cause the love from the past gave birth to Kid Rock But it's hard to go back to the things I knew Cause ta me life a have now lives for two Yeah, and that's where I'm at I wanna go back [x3] Let it ride, let it ride way back, uh-huh

WHITNEY HOUSTON "Whitney"
(clap your hands, yall its alright....) If tomorrow is judgement day (sing mommy) And I'm standin' on the front line And the Lord ask me what I did w/ my life I will say I spent it withyou If I wake up in WW 3 I see destruction and poverty And I feel like I want to go home It's okay if youcommin' with me Cause your love is my love and my love is your love It would take an eternity to break us And the chains of Amistad couln't hold us If I lose my fame and fortune And I'm homeless on the street And I'm sleepin' in Grand Central Station It's okay if you're sleepin' with me As the years they pass us by we stay young through eachother's eyes And no matter how old we get It's okay as long as I got you babe chorus If I should die this very day Don't cry, cause on earth we wasn't meant to stay And no matter what people day I'll be waiting for you after jusdement day chorus

Something To Be Proud Of

MONTGOMERY GENTRY
There's a story that my daddy tells religiously Like clockwork every time he sees an opening In a conversation about the way things used to be Well I'd just roll my eyes and make a bee-line for the door But I'd always wind up starry-eyed, cross-legged on the floor Hanging on to every word Man, the things I heard It was harder times and longer days Five miles to school, uphill both ways We were cane switch raised, and dirt floor poor 'Course that was back before the war Yeah, your uncle and I made quite a pair Flying F-15's through hostile air He went down but they missed me by a hair He'd always stop right there and say... That's something to be proud of That's a life you can hang your hat on That's a chin held high as the tears fall down A gut sucked in, a chest stuck out Like a small town flag a-flyin' Or a newborn baby cryin' In the arms of the woman that you love That's something to be proud of So I'm graduatin' college, that was mama's dream But I was on my way to anywhere else when I turned 18 Cuz when you gotta fast car you think you've got everything I learned quick those GTO's don't run on faith I ended up broken down in some town north of L.A. Working maximum hours for minimum wage Well, I fell in love, next thing I know The babies came, the car got slow I sure do miss that old hot rod But you sure save gas in them foreign jobs Dad, I wonder if I ever let you down If you're ashamed how I turned out Well, he lowered his voice, then he raised his brow Said, lemme tell ya right now That's something to be proud of That's a life you can hang your hat on You don't need to make a million Just be thankful to be workin' If you're doing what you're able And putting food there on the table And providing for the family that you love That's something to be proud of And if all you ever really do is the best you can Well, you did it man That's something to be proud of That's a life you can hang your hat on That's a chin held high as the tears fall down A gut sucked in, a chest stuck out Like a small town flag a-flyin' Or a newborn baby cryin' In the arms of the woman that you love That's something to be proud of That's something to be proud of Yeah, that's something to be proud of That's something to be proud of Now that's something to be proud of

What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted

Vonda Shepard
As I walk this land with broken dreams I have visions of many things Love's happiness is just an illusion Filled with sadness and confusion What becomes of the brokenhearted Who had love that's now departed? I know I've got to find Some kind of peace of mind, maybe The fruits of love grow all around But for me they come a-tumblin' down. Every day heartaches grow a little stronger I can't stand this pain much longer I walk in shadows searching for light Cold and alone, no comfort in sight, Hoping and praying for someone to care Always moving and going nowhere What becomes of the brokenhearted Who had love that's now departed? I know I've got to find Some kind of peace of mind, maybe I'm searching though I don't succeed, But someone look, there's a growing need Oh, he is lost, there's no place for beginning, All that's left is an unhappy ending Now what's become of the broken-hearted Who had love that's now departed? I know I've got to find Some kind of peace of mind I'll be searching everywhere Just to find someone to care. I'll be looking every day I know I'm gonna find a way Nothing's gonna stop me now I will find a way somehow (What's become, what's become, What's become of the brokenhearted What's become, what's become, What's become of the brokenhearted) I knooow, ohh yeah....
