Make It Easier

Original and similar lyrics
I'm in search of greener pastures don't like my garden's what I said I'm working harder than last year but I'm still deep in the red I'm rowing as hard as I can, and they're selling me up the stream I'm always one more step away from the American dream I got a chip on my shoulder bout the size of a mental block I got someone on the telephone trying to sell me a future in stock Maybe I work too hard to be happy, and I should practice letting go But it's hard not to rock the boat when you're sailing against the undertow I want to slide into the black and wear the black mask I might not get what I lack but it doesn't hurt to ask If I want to sail I need my life to be breezier I said please God or someone make it easier I went to Sunday School last Sunday swallowed the bait and I got the hook When I needed something someday I would read the good book Tell me what does it take to get ahead sometimes I know I'd sell my soul When it looks like everybody else is flying and I'm crawling in the hole Maybe if I opened my own business, maybe if I buy a lottery ticket Someone tell me what is the secret to getting out of the thicket I need more than just a sample I need a whole lot of glory So my life can become an example of the American success story I want to slide into the black and wear the black mask I might not get what I lack but it doesn't hurt to ask If I want to sail I need my life to be breezier I said please God or someone make it easier I want to slide into the black and wear the black mask I might not get what I lack but it doesn't hurt to ask If I want to sail I need my life to be breezier I said please God or someone make it easier Make it easier Make it easier

It Ain't Right

JOHN FOGERTY "Revival"
There go your big black limousine Shakin' your booty for the magazine Pickin' and posing like a wannabe It ain't right It ain't right Such a waste of life Maybe you forgot how we live down here People work hard for the money dear You had such a hard day lookin' at the mirror It ain't right It ain't right Honey such a waste of life Another long weekend with your friends I thought that party would never end Well at the old rehab and gone again It ain't right It ain't right Honey such a waste of life Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba, yeah! There go your big black limousine

The Flight Of Apollo

ANGELS & AIRWAVES "Love"
I'm flying, and something's reaching out Vibrations, can you hear them now? Please help us, we are running out of time My brothers, we are deathly out alive I feel you, on a far off distant land We fucked up, let's give ourselves a hand It's over, from the heavens on down Heard footsteps, God's coming around... I got an ache like a cat thief's got an alarm It's got a sound like a gunshot over and over I've got a voice so lost off back in my head It takes the heart rate up then down even more I've got my friends face down like a kid in the dark They've got the same fear built up more even more I've let my eyes bright up like a predator shark To let my mind close down every hour by hour Finally I get this feeling we're all alone in one big world Just to realize that all these shapes and colors are So it doesn't hurt so badly... So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly Please don't look at life, look at me so sadly Life shouldn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly Do you feel light shine in the darkest of nights, Or does the pain stack up from the skin to the core Do you find every time that you cover your eyes To keep the tears held up, dripping down even more Let the words come down, every line in a sight You put the young flames out it make you cower and cower If the sun breaks in to start a spark and a sign I promise you'll be here to let the light in Finally I get this feeling we are all alone in one big world Just to realize that all these shapes and colors are So it doesn't hurt so badly... So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly... So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly... Please don't look at life, look at me so sadly. Life shouldn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly I'm floating and somethings reaching out Vibrations, can you hear them now? Please help us, from the heavens on down Our footsteps, God's coming around... Go! So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly... So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly... Please don't look at life, look at me so sadly. Life shouldn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly Gotta make like a cat thief's got an alarm It's gotta sound like a gunshot over and over I've gotta voice so lost off back in my head It takes the heart rate up then down even more I've got my friends face down like a kid in the dark They've got the same fear built up more even more I've let my eyes bright up like a predator shark To let my mind close down every hour by hour Do you feel light shine in the darkest of nights? Or does the pain stack up from the skin to the core Do you find every time that you cover your eyes To keep the tears held up, dripping down even more Let the words come down, every line in a sight You put the young flames out it make you cower and cower If the sun breaks in to start a spark and a sign I promise you'll be here to let the light in

Can't Tell Me Nothing

KANYE WEST "Graduation"
I had a dream I can buy my way to heaven When I awoke, I spent that on a necklace. I told God I'd be back in a second, Man it's so hard not to act reckless. To whom much is given much is tested. Get arrested, guess until, they get the message. I feel the pressure, under more scrutiny, and what I do? Act more stupidly. bought more jewelry, more Louis V, my momma couldn't get through to me. The drama, people suing me, I'm on T.V. talking like it's just you and me. I'm just saying how I feel man, I ain't one of the Cosby's I ain't go to Hill man I guess the money should've changed him, I guess I should've forgot where I came from. [Chorus:] La, la, la, la wait till I get my money right la, la, la, la then you cant tell me nothing right Excuse Me, is you saying something? Uh, uh, you can't tell me nothing (Ha ha) you can't tell me nothing Uh, uh, you can't tell me nothing Let up the suicide doors. This is my life homey, you decide yours. I know that Jesus died for us, But I couldn't tell you who decide wars. So I parallel double parked that motherfucker sideways Old folks talking about back in my day But homey this is my day. Class started 2 hours ago, oh am I late? You know I already graduated And you can live through anything if magic made it. They say I talk with so much emphasis, Oh, they're so sensitive. Don't ever fix your lips like collagen Say something were you gone end up apologising. Let me know if it's a problem man, Alright man, holla then. [Chorus] Let the champagne splash, let that man get cash, Let that man get past. You don't need a stop to get gas, If he can move through the rumors, he can drive off the fumes cause How he move in a room full of no's? How he stay faithful in a room full of h**s? Must be the pharaohs, he in tune with his soul, So when he buried in a tomb full of gold. Treasure. What's you pleasure? Life is a, uh, depending how you dress her. So if the devil wear Prada, Adam Eve wear Nada, I'm in between, but way more fresher. With way less effort, 'cause when you try hard, That's when you die hard. Ya homies looking like "Why God?" When they reminisce over you, my god. [Chorus]

Easier

KANDI "Hey Kandi"
[Kandi] This song is dedicated to my brother Patrick O'Dell Reilly Ooh Oh oh, ooh I was in misery without you I could not imagine life without you It was such a painful thing to go through Have you bein' taken away But I, I dried my tears Even though it took a couple of years I guess I had to just get over my fears Of bein' alone But it gets... 1 - [Kandi and Faith] It gets, it gets easier Without you I won't feel right I can't feel right Without you But it gets, it gets easier Repeat 1 [Faith] I thought my life was over without you Thought I would be oh so sad darlin' Cuz you left me here to face all my fears All by myself, with nobody else Now that you're gone, I just gotta move on But my love'll never change It'll always stay the same I felt you were gone, the lonely nights alone I get weak, then I'm strong It gets easier Repeat 1 Repeat 1 [Kandi] Sometimes it's really hard to just let go [Faith] Don't feel like movin' on, oh, yet I know [Both] Just breathin' air is hard to bare When the one that you love is not there [Faith] Thoughts of you sit heavy on my mind [Kandi] I always reminisce on our good times [Both] I just take it day by day I know that it'll never be easy But I can say, it gets easier Repeat 1 to fade

Poor Millionaire

AUGUST BURNS RED "Leveler"
You stand up pridefully in front of thousands, screaming words of justice and truth. You wear a mask of this city’s hero. You are the pretender. You fake, you fake, but fortunate. You wear a mask of this city’s hero. You fake, you fake, but fortunate. You are the pretender. Your weak speech lines your gums with gold teeth, yet you don’t believe in a word that you say. You’re speaking shackles to life. Self-rightheousness is your demise. You coward. Draw a line in the sand. You bastard. Look at what you have become. Your breath it reeks of perversion. Your tongue is just like a whore, full of vulgarity, full of the disease. Where is the life in the life you live? You are the poor millionaire. Where is the life in the life you live? A lifeless empire, a lifeless heir. Your crown is like a lion’s mouth devouring you from the inside out. Turn away before there’s nothing left. It’s life or death. Tyrant. Ring the bells of repentance, awakening from your deathbed. Tyrant. Ring the bells of repentance, awaken from your deathbed. Oh tyrant. Oh tyrant. You stand up pridefully in front of thousands, screaming words of justice and truth. You wear a mask of this city’s hero. You are the pretender. Coward. Coward. Where is the life in the life you live? Where is the life in the life you live? ...life you live?
