Since You've Been Gone

Original and similar lyrics
You left...our home Didn't see eye to eye No matter how hard I try I live...on my own Still I don't seem to find Any kind of peace of mind Chorus And I'm still looking for you... Have you seen my baby? That's all I want to do... Have you seen her lately? Since you've been gone Since you've been gone now Since you've been gone Gone so long now Since you've been gone Since you've been gone now Since you've been gone Gone so long now My friends...at work They tell me I should get away Maybe take a holiday They know...I hurt Everyday, I get in late Find it hard to concentrate Chorus And I'm still looking for you... Have you seen my baby? That's all I want to do... Have you seen her lately? Since you've been gone Since you've been gone now Since you've been gone Gone so long now Since you've been gone Since you've been gone now Since you've been gone Gone so long now Can't sleep...don't eat Sitting in a Smokey bar Wondering where the hell you are I watch...TV Thrown away another day Sitting in the Café all day Chorus Since you've been gone Since you've been gone now Since you've been gone Gone so long now Since you've been gone Since you've been gone now Since you've been gone Gone so long now...

Locomotive

Guns' N' Roses "Use Your Illusion II"
Gonna find a way to cure this loneliness Yeah I'll find a way to cure the pain If I said that you're my friend And our love would never end How long before I had your trust again I opened up the doors when it was cold outside Hopin' that you'd find your own way in But how can I protect you Or try not to neglect you When you won't take the love I have to give I bought me an illusion An I put it on the wall I let it fill my head with dreams And I had to have them all But oh the taste is never so sweet As what you'd believe it is- Well I guess it never is It's these prejudiced illusions That pump the blood To the heart of the biz You know I never thought That it could take so long You know I never knew how to be strong Yeah, I let you shape me But I feel as though you raped me 'Cause you climbed inside my world And in my songs So now I've closed the door To keep the cold outside Seems somehow I've found the will to live But how can I forget you Or try not to reject you When we both know it takes time to forgive Sweetness is a virtue And you lost your virtue long ago You know I'd like to hurt you But my conscience always tells me no You could sell your body on the street To anyone whom you might meet Who'd love to try and get inside And bust your innocence open wide 'Cause my baby's got a locomotive My baby's gone off the track My baby's got a locomotive Got ta peel the bitch off my back I know it looks like I'm insane Take a closer look I'm not to blame No Gonna have some fun with my frustration Gonna watch the big screen in my head I'd rather take a detour 'Cause this road ain't gettin' clearer Your train of thought has cut me off again Better tame that boy 'cause he's a wild one Better tame that boy for he's a man Sweetheart don't make me laugh You's gettin' too big for your pants And I's think maybe you should Cut out while you can You can use you illusion- Let it take you where it may We live and learn And then sometimes it's best to walk away Me I'm just here hangin' on It's my only place to stay at least For now anyway I've worked too hard for my illusions Just to throw them all away I'm taking time for quiet consolation In passing by this love that's passed away I know it's never easy- So why should you believe me When I've always got so many things to say Calling off the dogs a simple choice is made 'Cause playful hearts Can sometimes be enraged You know I tried to wake you- I mean how long could it take you To open up your eyes and turn the page Kindness is a treasure- And it's one towards me you've seldom shown So I'll say it for good measure To all the ones like you I've known Ya know I'd like to shave your head And all my friends could paint it red 'Cause love to me's a two way street An all I really want is peace But my baby's got a locomotive My baby's gone off the track My baby's got a locomotive Got ta peel the bitch off my back I know it looks like I'm insane Take a closer look I'm not to blame No Affection is a blessing Can you find it in your sordid heart I tried to keep this thing ta-gether But the tremor tore my pad apart Yeah I know it's hard to face When all we've worked for's gone to waste But you're such a stupid woman And I'm such a stupid man But love like time's got its own plans 'Cause my baby's got a locomotive My baby's gone off the track My baby's got a locomotive Got ta peel the bitch off my back I know it looks like I'm insane Take a closer look I'm not to blame Yeah If love is blind I guess I'll buy myself a cane LOVE'S SO STRANGE

I Want You Back

RAPHAEL SAADIQ "Ray Ray"
Girl cant you see that I want you back And ill do anything to be with you again I want you back See I messed up I know I hurt you Baby I m sorry cant you see I want you back I remember how I used to make you breakfast in t he morning before you went to work I remember how I used to give you nookie for your late night desert But I can't tell you all the ways or The exact date that we fell apart Now mamma I ain't trying to justify the way I broke your heart I'm just trying to make you understand what's there inside my heart I must have been so blind See I thought love was blind But now I realise I swear I realise I want you back CHORUS Someone help me find My baby girl Someone help me find Me baby girl Someone help me find CHORUS CHORUS

Searchin

Freddie Foxxx "Industry Shakedown"
[Verse 1] As a child I felt lonely and helpless Low cash from a neighborhood wealthless I'll stick a wino, and rob him for his last penny Happy days around my way we didn't find many Momma said that I was outta line talkin smack Extension cords to this young nigga's black back A juvenile, thirteen, now I'm locked up Scared to cry, I don't wanna get fucked up Fifty push ups a strain on my young chest I paint the pictures that I pose for a sleeveless I see my momma only supervised when she cry She said my baby brother's comin he aint far behind Somebody tell me how I ended up like this I wait for God to give me strength, I'ma fight this I refuse to bend down cuz I'm young and wild Do or die that's this young nigga's rough style They'll never find me CHORUS: Searchin to find me [4X] My soul will be free before they find me [Verse 2] I hit the street full grown, momma's gone now Had a heart attack I'm living on my own now My black boots and my state green all I own And a burning desire for a microphone I see my little man Tiah bless me wit a burner Any coincidence I'm feeling like Nat Turner Twenty stick ups in thirty days they see me comin Everybody on the block duck and start runnin A old lady told me baby boy calm down But like in Vietnam war I got to bomb now My cash was up a little somethin, somethin, takin shake I blasted reddie at the weedgate and took his papes Cuz I done came a long way, in a short time And I'm willing to die tryin to get mine Alotta niggas think I'm cool wit 'em, guess what Them niggas in for a shock cuz I'm fucked up You'll never find me CHORUS [Verse 3] I got a little crew now I'm selling weight White mickeyed out Navigator, tight straight I got the butter soft seats watch a video Stag a lee, everybody in the city knows I make my rounds and I'm checkin how my work's moving Shit is picking up nice, life is improving I got the baddest bird in Brooklyn, she six months She keep a eye on my whole house, my youngsters I got my honey on the side she don't know about I'm on my way to see her now, I'm a blow her out I pull up to see her standing in the door waiting Shorty fine like a porn star masturbating She said, Daddy are you hungry, would you like to eat Would you let me rub your back, can I kiss your feet I told her, Baby make the bed cuz I need rest She sucked me down until I fell asleep, God bless I see my momma with my eyes closed, kinda strange Time to wake up and touch something, outta range White clouds with the softness I hear the music What the hell is going on here I'm 'bout to lose it Momma why you talking to me like you right here She said, Son you outta focus now, come clear She said, Your life'll be a milestone for everyone Because your layin in the bed that you made son Look how they found me CHORUS

You're Insane

ROD STEWART "Blondes Have More Fun"
You must be crazy or half insane Look at your eyeballs, street cocaine You drink that white rum, you hit the roof What do you expect, one-five-one proof You drive your mustang down Sunset Strip And in the back seat, a big black whip Look at your lipstick, all 'round your face Everything you do is in bad taste Chorus: Baby I think you're cute But there's no substitute for love Honey it's a crying shame This whole mad town thinks you're insane You take me dancing but I can't dance but when I try to, you start to laugh You shake your hips child like a rattle snake You make me jealous make no mistake You went to Woodstock and all that trash Your generation is fading fast You wear them hot pants, they're out of style You like brown sugar, I think it's vile (Chorus) One of these nights child, it won't be long Somebody somewhere who's big and strong In a dark alley, a blood stained coat He'll stick his long thing right down your throat (Chorus) Lord have mercy Hey baby, I think you're insane baby You got no brain, you're insane Tell me baby, can you play harp Can you play bass Can you play guitar Can you play drum Then you're insane

Won't Be Long

ARLO GUTHRIE "Arlo Guthrie"
words and music by Arlo Guthrie Not so long ago I set out on this road With my friends and my companions by my side And I think of you wherever I do go I'm a rambler, I ain't hard to satisfy. CHORUS: Won't be long till I am home again with you Just a few more miles to go Won't be long till I can get back on my own Won't be long till I can spend my time with you In the airport I'm standing in a line Search my pockets, check me out and I'm alright It's not hard but it ain't easy all the time To be in some other town most every night CHORUS Oh, I miss the singing from porch banjo nights And when friends come by to pass the time away And when the winds that chill the Bershires in the night Heading east through Massachusetts toward the bay.
