Land Of Canaan

Original and similar lyrics
You can go to the East to find your inner hemisphere You say we're under the same sky baby don't you realize honey it's not that clear I'm not your promised land, honey, you know that I'm not! I'm not your promised one I'm not the land of Canaan, sweetheart, waiting for you under the sun I'm lonely tonight, I'm missing you now I'm wanting your love and you're givin it out I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight Well the meaning has changed for what it's worth it's just a senseless game I should think of love, but it's fear, everytime I hear honey your heartbeat strain It's not the fallen man, honey, you know that it's not! It's not the call of time It's just the London skyline, sweetheart, telling me you're not mine I'm lonely tonight, I'm missing you now I'm wanting your love and you're givin it out I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight Now my blood is running dry my skin is my skin is growing thin Everytime you find yourself you lose a little of me and honey it's from within It's just a raging cycle, why can't we bring it all to the end of the line From inside this existence, sweetheart, time is not on my side I'm lonely tonight, I'm missin you now I'm wanting your love and you're givin it out I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight I'm not your promised land I'm not your promised one (I'm lonely tonight) I'm not your promised land I'm not your promised one (Honey I'm trying to tell you that I'm lonely tonight) I'm not the land of Canaan (I'm lonely tonight) I'm not your land of Canaan (I'm lonely tonight) I'm not the land of Canaan, sweetheart, waiting for you under the sun I'm lonely tonight

Jazzmatazz 2010 Guru Tribute

JAY ELECTRONICA "The Jay Electronica Project"
[Intro - Martin Luther King Jr.:] We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now Because I’ve been to the mountaintop; I don’t mind Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land! And so I'm happy, tonight I'm not worried about anything I'm not fearing any man! Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!! [Verse 1 - Jay Electronica:] Boom bash dash I had to break, I had to get away Pack my bags, headed for Greyhound, it was a Monday Time to start my mission I felt that burning feeling in my soul, I had to listen I had this re-ocurring dream from the stage in a suit with a fade I had set the game ablaze and they threw me a parade I stacked a little change and took my family out the caves But I was trapped in a maze like a lab rat And at the bottom of the barrel where they keep the crabs at No Geico, no Aflac, nothing to fall back on But the streets where niggas cussed out the police and sold they crack on Better known as back home, where they treat the Arabs and the Spanish and the blacks wrong There he go with that song You may be tired but I spit what I'm inspired From the Lord of the worlds cause the devil is a liar [Hook - Tone Treasure:] Say, I've seen the lightning flashing (yes I did) And I've seen the thunder roar But you can't (you can't keep me down for long) Because I'm getting stronger (Because I keep getting stronger) [Verse 2 - Jay Electronica:] My style is like a shot of Jack Daniels, a baby grand piano Lightening Hopkin, smokin' cigs, strummin' on the banjo The son of man's the son of a gun with hella ammo Sheriffs shootin' Bob Marley, John J. Rambo Six sextillion, 19 million, the holy pyramids say we all Allah's children Voodoo for the pilgrims who bring weapons and conceal 'em They silence you with force and then indoctrinate the children Yo Gabba Gabba, Ahmadinejad will blow up your apartment if you don’t observe the Sabbath I look the devil in his eye and say abracadabra Then drown 'im in the mighty light his brain couldn’t fathom Scrappin' every day, just like fight club A thriller and a smooth criminal like Mike was [Hook]

Don't Let Me Be Lonely

AMERICA "Your Move"
Written by Russ Ballard, 1983 Found on Your Move. Here we are again Two lovers lost in a maze So many roads we could go down So many ways we could go wrong You think we should part Both go our own separate ways Oh, girl why can't (oo) we work it out Can't you hear what my heart says (ah) Don't let me be lonely Don't let me be lonely tonight That wouldn't be right Now that I (ah) need you more than ever Here we are tonight Both starring in the same play But I'm the one (oo) who plays the fool I've only one line to say (ah) Don't let me be lonely Don't let me be lonely tonight That wouldn't be right Now that I (ah) need you more than ever Girl, what will I be If you walk away from me How can I make you stay (ah) Don't let me be lonely Don't let me be lonely tonight That wouldn't be right Now that I need you more than ever

Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight

JOE COCKER "Heart & Soul"
Do me wrong, do me right. Tell me lies but hold me tight. Save your good-byes for the morning light, but don't let me be lonely tonight. Say goodbye and say hello. Sure enough good to see you, but it's time to go. Don't say yes but please don't say no, I don't want to be lonely tonight. Go away then, damn you, go on and do as you please, You ain't gonna see me getting down on my knees. I'm undecided, and your heart's been divided, you've been turning my world upside down. Do me wrong, do me right, right now, baby. Go on and tell me lies but hold me tight. Save your good-byes for the morning light, morning light, but don't let me be lonely tonight. I don't want to be lonely tonight, no, no, I don't want to be lonely tonight. I don't want to be lonely tonight.

Hold Me

JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS "Glorious Results Of A Misspent Youth"
(Joan Jett/Kenny Laguna/Ricky Byrd) No tears for us tonight, we've really got to try Everybody's got their problems And secrets that they try to hide No fight or fuss tonight, be gentle as you can Everyone thinks I'm stronger, Much stronger than I am I get scared and lonely And I need someone to hold me I get scared and lonely And I need someone to hold me Just like you do There's no place left to go When you're runnin' from yourself It's easy when you draw conclusions While you're lookin' at someone else I tell the truth to you we've really got a lot There is no time for sympathy I think we ought to take a shot Honey, I get scared and lonely And I need someone to hold me I get scared and lonely And I need someone to hold me Just like you do Just take my hand, we'll find our way through We won't be afraid 'cause We've got each other to hold on to Honey, I get scared and lonely And I need someone to hold me I get scared and lonely And I need someone to hold me someone like you I get scared and lonely And I need someone to hold me, just like you do
