Closer To Fine

Original and similar lyrics
I'm trying to tell you something bout my life Maybe give me insight between black and white And the best thing you've ever done for me Is to help me take my life less seriously It's only life after all Now darkness has a hunger that's insatiable And lightness has a call that's hard to hear I wrap my fear around me like a blanket I sailed my ship of safety till I sank it I'm crawling on your shores I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains, I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains There's more than one answer to these questions pointing me in a crooked line And the less I seek my source for some definitive The closer I am to fine The closer I am to fine I went to see the doctor of philosophy With a poster of Rasputin, and a beard down to his knee He never did marry, or see a b-grade movie He graded my performance, he said he could see through me I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind I got my paper and I was free I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains, I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains There's more than one answer to these questions pointing me in a crooked line And the less I seek my source for some definitive The closer I am to fine The closer I am to fine *whistle* I stopped by the bar at 3 am To seek solace in a bottle, or possibly a friend And I woke up with a headache like my head against a board Twice as cloudy as I'd been the night before I went in seeking clarity I went to the doctor, I went to the mountain, I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain We go to the doctor, we go to the mountains, we look to the children, we drink from the fountains We go to the bible, we go through the workout, we read up on revival, we stand up for the lookout There's more than one answer to these questions pointing me in a crooked line The less I seek my source for some definitive The closer I am to fine The closer I am to fine The closer I am to fine

Moment Of Glory

ROD STEWART "Vagabond Heart"
Here is a story that is bound to amuse ya (about a fine young couple startin' out in life) A dedicated husband and a real fine worker (who lived for his children and his beautiful wife) But one night in Dallas at a computer convention (he got so loaded he could hardly stand) Woke up with a heavy head and a strange girl beside him (returned home a worried guilty man) But inside his coat his wife found a note It said 'Thanks for the good time Can I see you again' She asked him 'Why oh why' Tears rollin' down her eyes 'would you give it all up for a moment of glory' glory Packed up all her bags and returned to her mother (Two small children clinging to her dress) Hurt and disillusioned but never down hearted (she picked up the pieces of her broken life) And meanwhile back in Boston the culprit lie thinkin' (trying to find the answer in a bottle of wine) Fired from his job and missing his children (he didn't care one way if he lived or died) Oh what a crying shame nobody else to blame for one night of pleasure he had given her pain Oh how it was so hard to climb so far to give it all up for a moment of glory, glory As the months rolled by and accusations fly the bloodsuckin' lawyers know they're in for a kill The gold war begins she's takin' off her rings Close friends take sides while the waters are still Phone rang twice in his stone cold appartment (it was his little boy Johnny and his sister Beth) They said 'Daddy we miss you would you talk to Mommy' (a line of communication he had sadly missed) She said 'Now don't get me wrong this is where you belong' I said 'Good-bye children we can work it all out' 'But don't you ever forget how this family has bled 'cause you give it all up for a moment of glory' glory Won't you give it all up you give it all up Won't you give it all up you give it all up

It The End Of The World As We Know It

R.E.M. "Document"
That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane - Lenny Bruce is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn - world serves its own needs, don't misserve your own needs. Feed it up a knock, speed, grunt no, strength no. Ladder structure clatter with fear of height, down height. Wire in a fire, represent the seven games in a government for hire and a combat site. Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the furies breathing down your neck. Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered crop. Look at that low plane! Fine then. Uh oh, overflow, population, common group, but it'll do. Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed. Tell me with the rapture and the reverent in the right - right. You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched. It's the end of the world as we know it. It's the end of the world as we know it. It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine. Six o'clock - TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign tower. Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn. Lock him in uniform and book burning, blood letting. Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate. Light a candle, light a motive. Step down, step down. Watch a heel crush, crush. Uh oh, this means no fear - cavalier. Renegade and steer clear! A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies. Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline. It's the end of the world as we know it. It's the end of the world as we know it. It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine. The other night I tripped a nice continental drift divide. Mountains sit in a line. Leonard Bernstein. Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs. Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom! You symbiotic, patriotic, slam, but neck, right Right. It's the end of the world as we know it. It's the end of the world as we know it. It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine...fine... (It's time I had some time alone)

JOEY BADA$$ "Summer Knights"
We don't say swag no more we say swank [Verse 1:] Yo, yo, Hip-Hop's a jungle Uh, lost in his time I'm just tryna get it like a Porsche in it's prime These fake niggas sumblime, life of fine sights Visual fortune but the price ain't quite right The slice ain't quite ripe Still pulling strings how I fly but I don't like kites How they gon' treat Brooklyn's finest not as fine as diamonds? If I nice, surrounded by hard flow like Icelands Now we getting icing, finances nice And I don't like surprises, I like superb prices rising It's the least I could do, these verses priceless Rehearsing and bike in reverse her eyelid until she curse in silent Got a problem solve it, all my Pros saw this We all gon' die and until then we mobbing So don't push me, Uh, I'm close to the pussy, even Closer to the know-ledge dropped out of college In advance hit the ground running like it's ants in my pants Honey, pop was a bumbaclot and had a queen bee Mommy Uh, I love her to the tissue, disrespect my blood and it's an issue She like "This you on the cover for real?

You're Gonna Be Fine

AMY STUDT "False Smiles"
Constantly, finding ways to fill the empty space. But still it seems that nothing touches you anymore. And you're not really sure, which way to turn. If you feel the sadness sweep you off yout feet, Doubled in the things that you feel. Don't be ashamed of who you are and don't be afraid to stand your ground. Cause at the end, end of the day, You're one step closer to finding your way, And although you might think you're out of time, You're gonna be fine. Cause at the end, end of the day, You're one step closer, To finding your way, And although you might think you're out of time, You're gonna be fine. You should know that things aren't always as they seem. So why still swim in the depths of a tide that's pulling you in? Makes you think your life has been a waste of time. Leave the shade and step out into the glare. Pease of mind awaits you there. Don't be afraid to stand your ground. Don't be ashamed of who you are. Cause at the end, end of the day, You're one step closer, To finding your way, And although you might think you're out of time, You're gonna be fine. Cause at the end, end of the day, You're one step closer to finding you way, And although you might think you're out of time, You're gonna be fine. Never had the help to find your way, There's nothing you could do or say. You had to find your own mistakes to learn. Just look inside of you, You've got to find your own way through. Cause at the end, end of the day, You're one step closer to finding your way, And although you might think you're out of time, You're gonna be fine. Cause at the end, end of the day, You're one step closer to finding your way, And although you might think you're out of time, You're gonna be fine.
