HARRY CHAPIN lyrics - Sequel

Story Of A Life

Original and similar lyrics
I can see myself it's a golden sunrise Young boy open up your eyes It's supposed to be your day. Now off you go horizon bound And you won't stop until you've found Your own kind of way. And the wind will whip your tousled hair, The sun, the rain, the sweet despair, Great tales of love and strife. And somewhere on your path to glory You will write your story of a life. And all the towns that you walk through And all the people that you talk to Sing you their songs. And there are times you change your stride, There are times you can't decide Still you go on. And then the young girls dance their gypsy tunes And share the secrets of the moon So soon you find a wife. And though she sees your dreams go poorly Still she joins your story of a life. So you settle down and the children come And you find a place that you come from. Your wandering is done. And all your dreams of open spaces You find in your children's faces One by one. And all the trips you know you missed And all the lips you never kissed Cut through you like a knife. And now you see stretched out before thee Just another story of a life. So what do you do now? When she looks at you now? You know those same old jokes all the jesters tell You tell them to her now. And all the same old songs all the minstrels sang You sing 'em to her now. But it don't matter anyhow 'Cause she knows by now. So every chance you take don't mean a thing. What variations can you bring To this shopworn melody. And every year goes by like a tollin' bell. It's battered merchandise you sell. Not well, she can see. And though she's heard it all a thousand times Couched in your attempted rhymes She'll march to your drum and fife. But the question echoes up before me Where's the magic story of a life? Now sometimes words can serve me well Sometimes words can go to hell For all that they do. And for every dream that took me high There's been a dream that's passed me by. I know it's so true And I can see it clear out to the end And I'll whisper to her now again Because she shared my life. For more than all the ghosts of glory She makes up the story, She's the only story Of my life.


[Hook - Aloe Blacc:] I'm gonna get in my car But wherever I go Seems like trouble will find me And I don't want trouble to find me I admit I play hide and seek with the violence String theories together just like a violin Red roses, blue violets The top pick in the cockpit That's fly shit Like defecating on a private plane, it's simple G4 with it, women with me In the present, here's a test If you tour the future then the past represents death Life, will it take me under? I don't know The good die young and the ugly get dough I feel this prickly feeling on the back of my neck The reaper tippy toe behind me everywhere that I go That's why I ride slow, I used to be in a rush Fast life, slow motion These days, I'm so focused And as soon as the chauffeur hold this door open I'ma [Hook] Here's a tiny tip There's no escapin' the trouble that come with this grand hustle You willin' to give everything for the glistenin' wrists Findin' the right fabric to keep your family knit Vanity slave, runnin' red lights, smokin' weed, they in love with you When you're untouchable, sonny You was born to fuckin' die, 'til then get money The belly of the beast ain't no tummy, you mistaken Track record longer than a train station You just record tracks, what a waste of wax Name an individual exempt From a candlelight vigil and bring me his head Nobody knows the trouble I've seen Optimistic but they say I need an ophthalmologist Now they just look at me like they owe me apologies So many red eyes I might need Visine Audio pilot, that's why I'm so high up The trouble still finds us like a citation, that's why I'm hatin' The waitin' and silent conversation with God like Why the Hell is Heaven so far? Don't need a stairway, I need a rocketship to blast off So what? No buts, I work my ass off And all my champions comply It's do or die when I ride, Tracy Chapman didn't die, nah [Aloe Blacc x2:] I'm gonna get in my car, I'm gonna drive real fast But wherever I go Seems like trouble will find me And I don't want trouble to find me [Aloe Blacc:] No more, no more, no more I don't want trouble to find me no more Said I don't want trouble to find me no more I don't want trouble to find me no more No more, no more, no more, no more

As Time Goes By

This day and age we're living in Gives cause for apprehension With speed and new invention And things like third dimension.. Yet we get a trifle weary With Mr. Einstein's theory So we must get down to earth at times Relax relieve the tension And no matter what the progress Or what may yet be proved The simple facts of life are such They cannot be removed.. You must remember this A kiss is still a kiss, A sigh is just a sigh The fundamental things apply As time goes by.. And when two lovers woo They still say, 'I love you' On that you can rely No matter what the future brings As time goes by.. Moonlight and love songs Never out of date Hearts full of passion Jealousy and hate Woman needs man And man must have his mate That no one can deny.. Well, it's still the same old story A fight for love and glory A case of do or die The world will always welcome lovers As time goes by.. [Queen Latifah] Times don't change, right? [Rod Stewart] Sing it to me, Latifah.. Oh, I'm singing it to you right now Cause we're talking about Moonlight and love songs Never out of date.. Hearts full of passion Jealousy and hate Woman needs man And man must have his mate That no one can deny.. Well, it's still the same old story A fight for love and glory A case of do or die The world will always welcome lovers As time goes by As time goes by.. Time goes by..

Welcome To Try

I have been down in the valley of tears I have stood on the highest peak For the best part of a week Battered and bruised I had pulled myself through Every seen I would never repeat I have hung out with the beasts of the field And with them I've spent many long nights Got in some awful bad fights I came unstuck, I was down on my luck And I'm still gettin' over the bites Sounds of my own heart breaking, not to mention my mind Nothing can hurt me, a small voice said into a mike, take a hike No one will lead me astray anymore You are welcome to try if you like Welcome to try if you like I had been down in the valley so long I had almost run out of respect Got in right up to my neck Battered but wise to the truth and the lies That no layman would ever accept Reaching for all of the good things in life Can provide some suprises I guess It may be the way we are dressed These threads that you see mean so little to me They don't count when they put us to rest Late about dusk I would start to feel One more day had been lost Nothing I'd say ever seemed to convey How I felt with that I have dealt All of my children are healthy and sane They may say anything that they like Say anything that they like Sitting alone in the Blue Ridge Saloon Is no place for an angel to be Ladies make faces at me Battered but clean I had pulled my machine Off the road, I was too tired to see Wearing a smile like the rim of a cup I will get down to my final point There is no one left to annoint And the sowing of seed was it good, yes indeed It thrills me but only to a point Use your imagination, try every trick in the book My mother said with the life that I led I'd be broke Holy smoke All of my children are healthy and wise They may say anything that they like If they want ta preach and are not within reach They may say anything that they like Say anything that they like
