She Wants So Many Things

Original and similar lyrics
(Struck By Lightning) She Wants So Many Things (G. Parker) Capo 2 INTRO: Em / D/ A/ D (3 times) G D A D She wants so many things you can't give to her G D A G She wants so many things you don't have much She wants so many things you can't deliver to her She wants so many things all at once VERSE (CHORDS: G / A / G / A) Like a brick wall that'll keep her from crumbling And a camouflage jacket to hide from herself in And a system of worship like a powerful magnet That'll draw in the heathens pick them up in a dragnet And pull them underwater till they all go stagnant BRIDGE (CHORDS: D / A / D / A) She wants so many things beamed in on a satellite Served up on a silver tray a wasp and parasite G D A D She wants so many things where you gonna find them all G D A G She wants so many things get up and run She wants so many things you're at her beck and call You're the puppet she pulls the strings just for fun VERSE (CHORDS: G / A / G / A) Like a blue ocean that's devoid of fishes Cause they're all on her table prepared into dishes Like an army of lieutenants all standing to attention And a book about you where YOU don't get a mention With her hand on a Bible she's right in your face She's a living example of God's bad taste And with him for an ally she can't be a heretic But her heart's from a laboratory spun from a synthetic BRIDGE (CHORDS: D / A / D / A) She wants so many things brought without question The Gardens of Babylon hanging and festooned A ship In the desert your soul on a plate She can't wait any longer don't make her wait G D A D She wants so many things you can't negotiate G D A G She wants so many things you feel the crunch She wants so many things don't make her reiterate She wants so many things all at once VERSE (CHORDS: G / A / G / A) A collection of clowns who were dragged up in public school Who dream up the rhythms that she dances in the disco to They all surround her and yes her to death With their hands on their mouths to hide their bad breath And she lives in a fortress at the back of a project And she'll let you in soon but not now and not yet And she likes to see you immersed in greed Confusing what you want with what you need BRIDGE (CHORDS: D / A / D / A) She wants so many things split up into atoms She owns the crown jewels but you can't get at 'em CHORUS 2 repeat then instrumental VERSE with doo dooo doos then INTRO repeat G D A D She wants so many things you can't keep up with her G D A G She wants so many things at the same time She wants so many things you can't keep it up her She wants so many things you'll never find VERSE (CHORDS: G / A / G / A) Like three million shoes and a closet full of whips And two dozen hats and then everyone fits And the kind of acceptance that needs a lobotomy That'll help you accept every single contradictory Statement that hits you like a force nine gale And makes you go pale every time that you fail To bring home the bacon and bring in the goods Get the musk from the deer and the shell from the turtle And the gold from the fools and the shells from the sea She says load them in a caravan bring them to me BRIDGE (CHORDS: D / A / D / A) She wants so many things brought to her feet Cover every inch of the world in concrete You better do it it's only your fate She can't wait any longer don't make her wait G D A D She wants so many things you can't give to her G D A G She wants so many things you don't have much She wants so many things you can't deliver to her Everything's attached to strings you can't touch (fade on) She wants so many things

All Things Good And Nice

Jets To Brazil
I love my mother For all the things she's not But mostly for who she is I love my father For all the things he's thought But really for the things he did I love my piano I wasn't ever taught Still I think I'm gonna live All things that those who wait Take time to find your way Half the answers Are failing your mistakes Even when you're wrong I think you're great I love my brother He's always taking shit He's just not like the other kids I love my sister For always making things She even made a brother outta me, sweet kid I love this feeling I've got something to give And no I think I'm gonna live All things to those who wait Take time to find your way Some say The truth is not so plain Don't confuse your truth with your pain You can take your life Say it isn't straight They aint gonna change your shape I love my drummer And all the things he plays I wrote it in half-time just to say “Thanks' I love my bassist Represent the western states I think they sent an angel from the old Salt Lake I love my guitarist His chops from outer space He can make my 3 chords sound like 8 All things to those who wait Take time to find your way All things to those who wait Take time to find your way To all the bands Meaning what they say It's not what you sell it's what you make I love you stranger It might not always show There's a lot of good in you I know

Can't Knock The Hustle (Rmx)

JAY-Z "B-Sides Remixes"
Intro: (Singing) Whoooh, Paradise you better think twice, 'cause you're not living the life Jay-Z: Jay-Z, Roc-A-Fella y'all, it don't stop Verse One: We about to change this game here Check my pockets there's nothing but game there I remain without fear Keep the lanes clear, and the cats that's all about threats remain here On top of this Metropolis My name is like a square Dropped off every tier Now y'all can swear to Jay Heard it the other day Through the mystery, we get it swiftly We got to hit you every night before we hit the lights it's type addictive Need cats to live with, the heat goes on Everyday is a hustle, the beat goes on Funny thing happen, in the midst of chasing money and foes And the worst thing worst then getting old is not getting old Niggaz stay low, like six bowls of shit and gold And watch the hoes when they bump into your clothes And I hope they shine Seen a lot of things and enough memories to last me two lifetimes Can't knock the hustle Chorus #1: (Singing) I'm taking out this time To give you a piece of my mind Who do you think you are Baby one day you'll be a star Verse Two Check this In a mans world need a girl to tough something Pull an 80 out her Anne Klein purse and bust something If you skating through the night to the light, then trust something When I get home Then it's on Girl just crack those shaped legs like Grade A eggs Love the way you behave and beg Moan, turn those hollers to screams as we zone like a college team Then they can hear you from Hollis, Queens (226) Life with me, consists of a lot of things Chips in your ear hit the dirt 'cause you got hotter things But you know how to scream, friends talking dizziness Remind them freak chicks to stay out my business You know they can't love it, trips to LA with no luggage Came back with six bags struggling In first class if my ass should crash, champagne spilled on me Bank still off on me Chorus #2: (Singing) But until the last day, I'm the one who's crazy 'Cause that's the way you making me feel (can't knock the hustle) I don't want no romance, I just want the chance Can't knock the hustle for real Verse Three Ever since you retired, working alongside those live wires Been in this rap biz with fake nigs you know liars I guess I'm biased, what I talk about I live These rap dudes can flip, but some of them ain't even rhyming for chips WHAT PART OF THE GAME IS THIS Seems brainless, on tours with whores that's what I'm saying I miss Cats that go all out for their gold plaques Starting out with four jacks, ended up with Gold Ac's Bet your love collapses if my funds get trapped On the weight of me through you, screw you Gun blew you, I didn't want to choose you Run through you like UH, EXCUSE YOU! But that's my cash, I understand you hustle That's my cash, you don't understand Let my dough flash, you can show it love Like a rap star in front of the club But don't knock the hustle Chorus 1 2 to fade

The Daily Planet

Love "Forever Changes"

Is It True

GLENN LEWIS "World Outside My Window"
1ST VERSE This is a story 'bout a day that came Not long ago About this girl I met Her name's Yvette That you might know This girl was bad She left me sad Not knowing what to do She was all wrong for me No matter what had to be free but She made it seem Like she wanted to be with me Playin' tricks on me Tell me CHORUS Is it true The things that people say you do My man said he hit it too You only like me for what I can do You're not feelin' me like I'm feelin' you 2ND VERSE Even though I try I can't deny way she look making me weak But word is she's a freak Things I heard man, I could hardly speack They say Don't believe everything you hear So what the deal my dear I gotta know, the way to go On how to deal with this right here CHORUS BRIDGE Caught up witcha Never pictured Things'd ever ended up this way With the games you play, no Had me believing Only scheming in the end was Just to get your way Still I need to hear you say REPEAT CHORUS TO FADE

Spinning

Fighting Gravity
(Lyrics, Music: Leitch) Too many people for too many things Can you wait up for me to catch you? Too many people for too many things Can you wait up for me, can you wait up for me? Scatterbrain we hear the prophets speaking on their own behalf with their crooked smiles for a little while on temporary sacred ground to bruise the knees for those around praying, saying what you knew could be was what you wouldn't see How could the man in black and white wait up to say his grace on speaking terms again, speaking up, falling down on temporary sacred ground to bruise the knees for those around praying, saying what you knew could be was what you wouldn't see (Refrain) Spinning faster to slow down Build your house on sacred ground Spinning faster to slow down Waiting for you, waiting for me (2X) As if you didn't know, it doesn't seem a bit surprising A little less for more, you walk in the sunlight's early rising repeating once, repeating twice to fall and fall and fall again (Refrain) The drink is slowing, the smoke is burning The clock still ticking, the oceans flowing The people looking, the rain still falling The world still spinning faster to slow down Too many people for too many things Can you wait up for me? Can you wait up for me? Playing hide and seek again, try to catch me if you can Sit and laugh with you at you, it never ends, it never wins on temporary sacred ground to bruise the knees for those around praying, saying what you knew could be was what you wouldn't see Spin and tear this game to play Spin and fall another day (Refrain) Too many people for too many things Too many people for too many things Can you wait up for me? Can you wait up for me? Spinning faster to slow down Can you wait up for me? Spinning faster to slow down
