GENESIS lyrics - We Can't Dance

Dreaming While You Sleep

Original and similar lyrics
Leaving my family behind me Not knowing what lay ahead Waving goodbye, as I left them in tears Remembering all we'd said I looked to the sky, I offered my prayers I asked Him for guidance and strength But the simple beliefs of a simple man Lay in His hands, and on my head My head I gave everything that they wanted But still they wanted more We sweat and we toiled Good men lost their lives I don't think they knew what for I sold them my heart I sold them my soul I gave everything I had But they couldn't break my spirit My dignity fought back Fightback Just fightback Can you hear me Can you see Don't you hear me Don't you see We worked in gangs for all we were worth The young boys pulling the wagons We were digging the tunnels, shifting the earth It was then that it happened No-one knew how the cracks appeared But as it fell they all disappeared Stone fell like rain Can you hear me Can you see Don't you hear me Can you breathe The smoke cleared, the dust it settled No one knew how many had died All around there were broken men They'd said it was safe, and they'd lied You could hear the cries, you could smell the fear But good fortune that day was mine And it occurred to me that the heart of a good man It seems is hard to find Can you hear me Can you see Don't you hear me Don't you see How we worked, how we worked like The devil for our pay Through the wind, through the snow And through the rain Blasting and cutting through Gods country like a knife Sweat stinging my eyes, there has to be a better life But I can hear my children's cry I can see the tears in their eyes Memories of those I've left behind Oh just still ringing in my ears Will I ever go back again Will I ever see her face again Cos I'll always remember that night As they waved goodbye to their fathers We came from the South And we came from the North With picks and with spades And a new kind of order Showing no fear of what lies up ahead They'll never see the likes of us again Driving the last spike Lifting and laying the track With blistering hands And the sun burning your back But I can hear my children's cry I can see the tears in their eyes Oh memories of those I've left behind Still ringing in my ears Cos I'll always remember that night As they waved goodbye to their fathers We followed the rail, we slept under the stars Digging in darkness and living with danger Showing no fear of what lies up ahead They'll never see the likes of us again Can you hear me Can you see Don't you hear me Don't you see

Hear Me In The Harmony

HARRY CONNICK, JR. "Star Turtle"
The city don't even matter I could be anywhere I don't care There's a whole lotta hard workin people That could take my place And it's easy to leave When nobody knows your face Just close your eyes You can hear me in the harmony I came up in New Orleans Fixin what I could find To peace my mind I gave what I had to the winners Just to get along But it's really hard to sing When nobody hears your song Just close your eyes You can hear me in the harmony I thought I learned from getting burned I bought a suit of armor and a silver cane I found a little man who'd be proud of me But he had to get up early And I had to get back to my pain I guess I'll keep on livin One day they'll ask for me I'll be free And if there's a heaven I'll be ready for my life to begin But I wonder if I call If they're gonna let me in Open your eyes You can hear me in the harmony

If You See Her, Say Hello

JEFF BUCKLEY "The Trash Can Tape"
If you see her, say hello, she might be in Tangier She left here last early spring, is livin' there, I hear Say for me that I'm all right though things get kind of slow She might think that I've forgotten her, don't tell her it isn't so. We had a falling-out, like lovers often will And to think of how she left that night, it still brings me a chill And though our separation, it pierced me to the heart She still lives inside of me, we've never been apart. If you get close to her, kiss her once for me I always have respected her for busting out and gettin' free Oh, whatever makes her happy, I won't stand in the way Though the bitter taste still lingers on from the night I tried to make her stay. I see a lot of people as I make the rounds And I hear her name here and there as I go from town to town And I've never gotten used to it, I've just learned to turn it off Either I'm too sensitive or else I'm gettin' soft. Sundown, yellow moon, I replay the past I know every scene by heart, they all went by so fast If she's passin' back this way, I'm not that hard to find Tell her she can look me up if she's got the time.

Soundcheck Intro

AUDIO PUSH "The Soundcheck"
[Oktane:] People please... Are you listenin to my vision that I am livin Ever since I was just a kid I knew I was given A talent that nobody else was given So my division was exactly that, but I never knew if I was the difference Between good and great Because all everyone does around my is hate And tell me everything I'm working hard that's a mistake And we're the ones who didn't listen, now look at us today We came from battle rappin, clappin the gats, cats attackin us and mad us because we doin what you couldn't But now you back at us and you clap for us, all I see is people been waggin us because they seein what they should've Well you a couple minutes late You're try to bring your fruits to me, but I already ate I'm not hollywood my vision's just clearer I avoid conflict and it's not because I fear ya I just decided to choose I got too much to loose And besides that my only competition is the mirror So, pardon my? estab?, but you waggin when I'm walkin my by and I don't look your way it's simply because I don't hear ya All I hear is the fans, and ya'll understand their screams are deafening, they all waitin for the boss So you can pay for your ticket, you can't walk in with us because you didn't believe in us, now go and take your loss Cause now everybody is seein past the image That he has just hit it, the limit That he is not a gimmick The people admit it They see him and he is who they scrimmage They shoot at my head, I popeye, and he is out of spinach Take it in I'll give you a minute Sean and Kadis told me to go in, I hope that they meant it Lots of money and time had went in I spent it Now I'm paid in full every show, back to business Of course they're gonna hit the three, even if they foul him I'm here to sell more than a couple thousand I've worked too hard to be looked at as lousy I stand unamused, only music can arouse me Lyrics sparks songs I' m nice with em Mr. Hi I'm Him can really write venom I be happy to sent these rappers, out ice with em Point proven and I'm movin, I bruised em now Price get em [Price Tag:] Ever since the moment that I took a sip of life, I knew my kryptonite was to get on stage and grip the mic I see my dreams in front of me had to grip it tight Grew up with no dad, I guess that makes me a victim right? Wrong, I'm on my throne with my feet up You headed to the same destination, we can meet up My book is in the sky, which means you gotta read up Only the game is in the oven, let's turn the heat up Pull the seat up, sit in the row Get on the map, sick of the thoughts, sick of the flow Pickin the shows, the quitters will stop the rippers will go We hittin them low, Price T and Okt we give and we go Whoa, my life I feel out rested My brody Bread shot in the head, show me the justice And ever since my cousin Pooch got killed I've been spittin fire untill the booth got grilled Who's not real? Audio the next in Punchin every letter in the game, no textin Teachin the class the wrong time to end the lesson Sittin alone on this road, no intersections Just me and destiny They waitin for the new livin legend, the next is me So feel the power of the truth when you're next to me I'm on the desktop, the trash is where the rest'll be So fear as the beat drops They prayin that I fell, and I just put my faith in God Let me say it again, I put my faith in God Chase the dollar Fix my collar Let them know that it's the rise And it's my job to release what I got in Loser from the Inland Empire, I am not him Me, I refuse to get in the game and not win If Okt is missin the three, I be tippin the shot in The only way that I'm going is right, no lefts Doing what I please in this game, no refs We the force that give you reports, no F's Me, I'm tryna make this money stretch, bow flex Oh yes, at show time I'm the town rep Gimme a flannel, some skinny jeans, and a brown vest The grand finale is us, we'll put it on next Just turn my mic up, I think it's time for soundcheck

Awaiting The End

Shroud of velvet, ebony coffin Deathly pale like peaceful sleep The past looks back with thousand faces From the confluent hiding of time Break through your mental derangement Wait for the inevitable end Pray to your lord for forgiveness While you hope to bear it up well Hope you reach the sphere you dreamt of Broken dreams seem so dreadful, grotesque Slowly all your power's fading Your own life shines so worthless, sinful Embraced by silent shadows Loneliness, guides all your path No one's left to hear you Alone with your fear of death Flame of life lost in unknown Fear of death crawls inside Now you lost your energy of living While you taste the chalice of death Deep depressions enter your mind Why doesn't god hear all your cries Now the chapter's finished, it's your turn to die You are in agony, death laughs at your cry


JANELLE MONÁE "The ArchAndroid (Suites II And III)"
[1st movement:] The only love my heart approaches Your tender eyes fill mind with roses I drink your wine And never will my heart dry inside Or be denied Walking like a lonely fool in Prague Singing a love song and the words I wrote I wrote for two Gentle as a lullaby at night I hear you humming private melodies You're near BaBopByeYa. Where are you my darling? BaBopByeYa. Can you hear me calling? Rewind the clock, our time's approaching Give us the eyes to guide us most when We have no light to see throughout all our darkest days And troubled ways [2nd movement:] Ojos miran hacia la luna Evitan un mundo tan triste Dominado bajo el odio Donde el amor no existe Dame en su reino refugio De la oscuridad peligrosa Espero en la esquina, Querida Busco la llamanda amorosa Eyes look to the moon Avoid a world so sad Ruled under the hate Where there is love Give me refuge in his kingdom In the dark dangerous I hope in the corner, Dear Seeking the love Call us Like a lonely matador at night Fighting in the darkness for the light I won't stop until I hear the call of love... And when I'm alone, you are near to me You have made a home in my memory There you will abide for forever And I will keep you warm in the night [3rd movement:] In the face of an awful danger he risks his life to save her Lowly manger Arms of strangers To me Allude me Pursue me Truly I heed echos of your laughter in the corners of my mind While I memorise each detail of your intricate design In your hair there is a symphony Your lips, a string quartet They tell stories of a Neon Valley Street Where we first met now somewhere time pursues us As we love in Technicolor But I dwell in silence on your words Which move me like none other This time I shall be unafraid And violence will not move me this time we will relax This time we will stay in our movie I see beyond tomorrow This life of strife and sorrow My freedom calls and I must go
