Left Me A Fool

Original and similar lyrics
Everybody loves you and they want to know your story You go riding out a mystery concealed in all your glory But when it comes to flesh and bones you remind me of Shalot Only made of shadows even though you're not I remember how I spent all my energy and time With affected conversation trying to pry inside your mind You are as brilliant as truth and empty as a shell And I came to you one night and it made me feel like hell Oh, to reach through all your surface Just to find an empty pool And to suffer all your pride as I lay down by your side And you swallowed up my heart and left me a fool Left me a fool Everybody loves a hero an image to create Antithesis of everything inside theirselves they hate But you'd better close your eyes when it's time for them to die Cause you'd hate to think the life we built upon them was a lie Oh, to reach through all your surface Just to find an empty pool And to suffer all your pride as I lay down by your side And you swallowed up my heart and left me a fool Left me a fool I resign myself to silence I will never blow your cover No one ever has to know who the hero took for lover But it comes to mind as you blaze on as brilliant as a star How many you've left behind, how many casualties there are To reach through all your surface Just to find an empty pool And to suffer all your pride as I lay down by your side And you swallowed up my heart and left me a fool Left me a fool

Consistency

ARI HEST "Someone To Tell"
Why must it always be stop and go? Where in this life can I find constant flow? Inconsistency on a larger scale Impersistence forcing me to bail out Look left look right look left again before you take a giant step All this side to side takes me out of my groove makes me feel inept I toe the straight line for one short time Forget about regrets and doubts that Make me stop on a dime I'm a fool for distraction Can't keep cool throughout my action Once in a while I find satisfaction I have too much care beyond my reach And too much love that I can't preach What I really need is consistency Everywhere that I go I don't want to be Cause I keep telling me "You're missing out, gotta move, gotta break on free" A modern-day busybacksoon Kind of figures cause I was born in June The month of moody, happy feet The people that no one would like to meet Of wandering no-clues, but why should I have to choose? [Chorus] What if what I need is just to believe Day in day out I find I'm searching for the key My head and heart are too stubborn to agree Where it begins must lie within me I've been so busy finding my way I'm not content with the roles I've been playing But something occurred to me just the other day I am who I am come what may

Finger Prints

Kellie Coffey "When You Lie Next To Me"
There I was, all alone. Someone in just the right place for something to go wrong. Just when I thought that I was safe and sound. He picked all the locks protecting me and got to me somehow Just look around. Everything is gone. All that's left is just this heartache I've got on. He walked right in and robbed me blind. He took all the love I had. It was almost the perfect crime and slipped away like a thief into the night. Oh but here I am still breathing The only proof he left behind. Look on my heart, If you want evidence, You'll find his fingerprints. Just how I feel, is hard to say. I guess the shock'll fade away. But for today I'll be as strong as I can be. I saw the whole damn thing, but I still can't believe. He walked right in and robbed me blind. He took all the love I had. It was almost the perfect crime and slipped away like a thief into the night. Oh but here I am still breathing The only proof he left behind. Look on my heart, If you want evidence, You'll find his fingerprints. Oh yeah, ..... oh... He slipped away, like a theif into the night. Oh but here I am still breathing, The only proof he left behind, Look on my heart, if you want evidence, You'll find his fingerprints. Look on my heart, for the evidence, You'll find his fingerprints. oh oh ho oh

Sometimes It Be That Way

JEWEL "This Way"
Night with its shattered teeth Attempts to speak My pen is present but Courage left via the sink And I'm sorry I snuck up on you From behind I'm sorry not all My love letters did rhyme And I'm sorry that Jesus died for my sins And I swear to God It won't happen again And I'm sorry If it was my swerve that Tempted you to sway Oh well Sometimes it be that way And Romeo was A very nice man He said Jewel, I don't think You quite understand And I'm sorry if you had To explain it like this I'm sorry I was a point You were destined to miss And I'm sorry I spoke to you irreverently Down in the hollow By the old olive tree And I'm sorry If my heart breaking Ruined your day Oh well Sometimes It be that way I said Oh well, I got nothing Left to sell This love was a bell that Rang unheard in the air I was bound to find out That you didn't care Oh well Sometimes it be that way And Aphrodite with Her neon lamp Kissed Neptune They put her face On a stamp And I'm sorry I used it to mail A letter to you I'm sorry I'm glue and The rest bounces off of you And I'm sorry not even This jet's metal wings Could get across These simple things And I'm sorry If I ever sang Your name in vain Oh well Sometimes it be that way And Goldilocks Well she knew three bears They all ate oatmeal And tiptoed upstairs And I'm sorry I never got to Find you like this Sleeping like a baby And swaddled in bliss And I'm sorry for All the times I forgot to imply something In between the lines And I'm sorry If my heart breaking Ruined your day Oh well Sometimes it be that way I said Oh well, I got nothing Left to sell This love was a bell that Rang unheard in the air I was bound to find out That you didn't care Oh well Sometimes it be that way And shadow's long fingers They dance on the wall Electricity chases Its tail in the hall And I'm sorry If my arms to you Were just empty rooms I'm sorry I never could comfort you And I'm sorry St. Petersburg is A miserable town And I'm sorry If I am bringing you down And I'm sorry If I caused you pain Oh well Sometimes it be that way And flame licks the air With its silver tongue Night has many hands But I have just one And I'm sorry I walked in on you Unexpectedly I'm sorry I never served you Camomile tea And I'm sorry I didn't always have a match That could start A fire big enough For your heart to catch And I'm sorry If it was my swerve that Tempted you to sway Oh well Sometimes it be that way

You Know Where To Find Me

MATTHEW WEST
I saw your sky fall down today Suddenly turned from blue to gray Till one by one the raindrops Turned to tears upon your face Wish there was something I could do Wish I could ease the pain from you But I've never felt so helpless It's like you're drowning right in front of me And I'm reaching out but you can't see There's something holding on to you so tight So I guess this is all I say to you tonight If you ever need me You know where to find me I will be waiting where I've always been If you ever need me You know where to find me I have never left you; I'm where I've always been Right by your side Right by your side If the whole wide world is on your back If the strength you need is the strength you lack If you're in a crowd but all alone If you can't stay here but you can't go home If you can't answer all the why's ‘Cause you're too tired to reach that high I want you to remember If you ever need me You know where to find me I will be waiting where I've always been If you ever need me You know where to find me I have never left you; I'm where I've always been Right by your side Right by your side If the whole wide world is on your back If the strength you need is the strength you lack If you're in a crowd but all alone If you can't stay here but you can't go home If you can't answer all the why's ‘Cause you're too tired to reach that high I want you to, I need you to remember If you ever need me You know where to find me I will be waiting where I've always been If you ever need me You know where to find me I have never left you; I'm where I've always been Right by your side (x7)

Cathedral In The Dell

ANDREW BIRD "Things Are Really Great Here, Sort Of..."
The cathedral in Cologne looks like a spaceship Like the hand of God falling from the sky A thousand stone carved saints hang like icicles But icicles don't take a thousand years to die And all of us who worked on this cathedral Or even spent a moment passing by All of us are swept away like breadcrumbs What comfort does it bring, soaring towers left behind Towers left behind Well there's a fiberglass castle in Wisconsin Where kids race go-karts around a moat Once we went up there in December When all the water slides and fudge shops were closed Looking to find love under the ice machine But all we did was drink in empty bars Stumbling drunk, we crawled back to our hotel room I fell against you, felt your beating heart I felt your beating heart Well the snow was slowly falling on the ice machine And the moon shone hazy through the pines Lawn chairs are thrown into an empty pool A dog chained to a tree, barking at the sky Towers left behind
