Extraordinary Machine

Original and similar lyrics
Extraordinary Machine I certainly haven't been shopping for any new shoes And I certainly haven't been spreading myself around I still only travel by foot and by foot it's a slow climb But I'm good at being uncomfortable so I can't stop changing all the time I noticed that my opponent is always on the go And won't go slow so as not to focus and I notice He'll hitch a ride with any guide as long as they go fast from whence he came But he's no good at being uncomfortable so he can't stop staying exactly the same If there was a better way to go then it would find me I can't help it the road just rolls out behind me Be kind to me or treat me mean I make the most of it I'm an extraordinary machine I seem to you to seek a new disaster every day You deem me doomed to clean my view and be at peace and lay I mean to prove I mean to move in my own way And say I've been getting along for long before you came into the play I am the baby of the family It happens so everybody cares And wear the sheeps clothes while they chaperone Curious you're looking down your nose at me while you appease Curteous to try and help but let me set your mind at ease If there was a better way to go then it would find me I can't help it the road just rolls out behind me Be kind to me or treat me mean I make the most of it I'm an extraordinary machine Do I so worry you? Do I need to hurry to say it's very kind But it's to no avail I don't want the veil of flowers to No everything will be just fine If there was a better way to go then it would find me I can't help it the road just rolls out behind me Be kind to me or treat me mean I make the most of it I'm an extraordinary machine

Medley (Yell Help, Wednesday Night, Ugly)

ELTON JOHN "Rock Of The Westies"
Yell help, too many cooks and a bird in the bush, yell help Yell help, if your mirror busts and your cat gets cussed, yell help 'Cause down the road you find someone else who's looking Down the road you find another sweet lady cooking So I gotta yell help Yell help, some shelter from the storm like the travel agent warned Yell help, if you can help your superstitions they gonna keep you warm 'Cause down the road you find someone else who's looking Down the road you seen another sweet lady cooking So I gotta yell help I wish tonight wasn't Wednesday night I wish it wasn't the thirteenth of July, yell help And you're looking at the guy whose eyes can't deny That he wishes he were somewhere else tonight Well I met this woman down in New Orleans Lord she built just like a dream Even wore stockings that had seams And she was ugly Now hell I don't mind women of her kind I'll even pay sometimes for a woman that's ugly She built like a steamroller Just the kind to mow you over anytime Hey the moment might arrive On bourbon street Well the ugliest woman you'll ever meet But she's mine all mine and she's ugly So I better yell help

The Captain And The Kid

ELTON JOHN "The Captain And The Kid"
I've been out on this road some Can't help feeling I've been showing my friends around I've seen it growing from next to nothing Into a giant eating up your town Called up the tealeaves and the tarots Asked the gypsy what she sees in the palm of our hands She saw a mountain and wild deer running A crazy kid becoming a better man But we stuck around for the fireworks Waiting to explode Shaped our futures, you a tumbleweed And me on a yellow brick road Pleasing the people some of the time For better or for worse An urban soul in a fine silk Suit And a heart out west in a Wrangler shirt [Chorus:] And you can't go back and if you try it fails Looking up ahead I see a rusty nail A sign hanging from it saying "Truth for sale" And that's what we did No lies at all just one more tale About the Captain and the Kid We've been missing at times in action Can't imagine what he said he might do for you The devil got to come to the party sometimes But he never got to wear our shoes Oh we've conjured up what we created Way back then when I was standing up in six-inch heels Now you're riding off into the sunset And I'm still spinning like a Catherine wheel But we stuck around for the battle Waiting for a plan To turn you into the Brown Dirt Cowboy And me into a rocket man It pleases the people some of the time Digging into our roots But I got a brand new pair of shoes And you're on a horse in old cowboy boots [Chorus 2x]

Cry

TYNISHA KELI
Oh oh oh Oh oh oh yea [Verse 1] Have you ever had a problem you had to keep to yourself? And u trying but it hurts like hell It's a feeling I despise Bringing misery to life Wishing u had someone to trust in so u can let it all out Convey the reason you've been feeling so down But when you reach out for help you find there's no one but yourself I know whoa [Chorus] Life won't be this tough forever only one thing makes it better Don't hold it inside No such thing as pride When your hearts on the line its okay to cry [x2] [Verse 2] I know what you feeling, I've been through it myself Contained emotions, I was locked it a shell Little did I know I was heading down that road (dead end road) I never had a compass directing where I should go Make a left off Victim Road Continue straight into the light 'cause that's where you're sure to find help [Chorus x2] [Hook] You ain't never too old or too grown to just cry Said you gotta let it out sometime Sit in a corner and cry Hug on a pillow and cry Scream at the top of your lungs and just cry You ain't never too old or too grown to just cry Said you gotta let it out sometime Sit in a corner and cry Hug on a pillow and cry Scream at the top of your lungs and just cry [Chorus] Life won't be this tough forever only one thing makes it better don't hold it inside No such thing as pride When your hearts on the line its okay to cry [x2]

Lovedrunk

ANOUK "For Bitter Or Worse"
I will help myself if you don't have the time It ain't hard to find a new lover Now it's your loss baby better check your mind What you got don't cover my needs Can't help myself when I start to show a sign I need love it's like an addiction I'd hurt myself If I don't get away I got to get myself a greater sensation I need more then you could give me Don't you know that I'm a lovedrunk Careful now before I'll break your heart I will charm you with my own style Long enough to make you think I'm yours Don't make me wait 'cause that would be a crime It is easier to find me another I'll find someone and I will get what is mine I keep looking for the better connection I'll help myself if you don't have the time Watch me boy I'm out on a mission You don't give me all that I need So I continue with my little obsession I need more than you could give me Don't you know that I'm a lovedrunk Careful now before I'll break your heart I will charm you with my own style Long enough to make you think you're mine Listen baby there's something I gotta tell ya I'm a lovedrunk I'm on a mission baby I'm so intoxicated I'm so bad Either way yeah I'm gonna get it get it

The Right Kind Of Phrase

JASON MRAZ
Once there was a girl that came from not too far from here And she wasn't satisfied at the rate that she applied herself To the items on the shelf, she was a retail girl And that really has to do with nothing though she gave me something A smile I'll rely on for a lifetime I'd try on for awhile So now why is she getting married on the 25th of April She believes in higher energy and better things for all the people She is a charm of good luck when she's sitting by your side But I think my luck run out on April twenty-five Oh love, oh love is all I'm looking for Sitting in the corner in the dark Hoping that she'd eye me, I'm looking right her way But I'd never find the right thing to say I'd never find the right kind of phrase There was a secret somebody Of course I never get the upper hand Those kinds of rare finds are all born with a man I just don't understand how they can Oh love, oh love is all I'm looking for Sitting in the corner in the dark and on the floor Hoping that she'd spy on me, I'm looking right her way I'd never find the right kind of phrase The right kind, the right line, or the right time to say almost anything that's right The right kind of phrase. I'd never find the right thing to say
