Nashville

Original and similar lyrics
As I drive from your pearly gates I realize that I just can't stay All those mountains they kept you locked inside And hid the truth from my slighted eyes I came to you with a half-open heart Dreams upon my back illusions of a brand new start Nashville Can' I carry the load Is it my fault I can't reap what I sow Nashville Did you give me half a chance Withe your Southern style and your hidden dance Away and you dance away and you dance away All these voices they whisper through my walls They talk of falling fast they say I'm losing it all They say I'm running blind to love of my own But I'll be walking proud I'm saving what I still own I fell on my knees to kiss your land But you are so far down I can't even see to stand Nashville You forgot the human race You see with half a mind what colors hide the face Nashville I'd like to know your fate I'd like to stay awhile but I've seen your lowered state today I've seen it today honey I swear I've seen it today Now I'm leaving I got all these debts to pay You know we all have our dues I'll pay 'em some other place I never ask that you pay me back We all arrive with more I left with less than I had Your town is made for people passing through A last chance for a cause I thought you knew Nashville Tell me what you are gonna do With all your Southern style it'll never pull you through Nashville I can't place no blame But if you forget my face I'll never call your name again Never no never again ah no I fell on my knees to kiss your land But you are so far down I can't even see to stand Nashville You forgot the human race You see with half a mind what colors hide the face Nashville I'd like to know your fate I'd like to stay a while but I've seen your lowered state today I've seen 'em today honey I swear I've seen 'em today I'm running away I'm running away I'm running I'm running away

The Chase Is On

HOODIE ALLEN "Leap Year"
Ask me what it feel like starin' at a sky so vanilla Tellin' Kurt Russell homie this ain't real life I'll be makin' good on my promises, Honesty is confidence Lot of it is missin' but I realize I could be better than I was Lighter on my feet Cookin up this soul when we fire up the beat Light the fire underneath me, higher when I speak Like I'm climbin up a steep tree Oooh come and greet me After the show, after the lights, after the shine After the hoes, half of them yours, half of em mine Happen to find they grill me but I'm the chef you want Once you get a little taste imma buy the restaurant Sittin at the top synonym, upper echelon Busy watching my life, stop, I can get you one Haters are always hanging round like a crucifix But I been on the chase homie I'm a fugitive Nowadays got it all figured out, I don't really gotta' take so long (take so long) But I'm missin all the times in the past When I couldnt see your face at all. That's why, the chase is on [x3] That's why, the chase is on [x3] Yeah, I said I could love a mystery More than any misdemeanor I ain't into wizardry But all I see are these Sabrinas Teenage witches with the Visas, Mastercards and Listerine Got me so stressed one day I will look like mr clean Sheesh not a bald man, who here needs a hall pass? I would rather kick it and do nothin' like a mall rat Never kel mitchell but baby I swear I'm all that Cuz I leap years everytime you fall back To where you came from Now where the hate go? Oh you from wu-tang? Then why's your face ghost? Bottle up my confidence and sell it by the case load Take a bunch of optimists, and drop em in the same boat Ask I'm if that shits half full, half empty. Too big for my own good, dikembe Mutombo you dumbos just envy Name a bunch of rappers and pretend that you forget me, But- Nowadays got it all figured out, I don't really gotta' take so long (take so long) But I'm missin all the times in the past When I couldn't see your face at all. That's why, the chase is on [x3] That's why, the chase is on [x3] So we say chasin on, Gettin' paid, Break yo' heart, Every day, But if you want imma take it all back [x2] So we say chasin on, Gettin paid, Break yo' heart, Every day, But if you want imma take it all back [x2] Nowadays got it all figured out, I don't really gotta take so long (take so long) But I'm missin all the times in the past When I couldn't see your face at all. That's why, the chase is on [x3] That's why, the chase is on [x3]

Nashville Women

WAYLON JENNINGS "Music Man"
If it wasn't for the powder and the fine tooth comb If it wasn't for the powder and the fine tooth comb You know the Nashville women might as well stay home, yeah. If the blues was booze I'd stay drunk all the time If the blues was booze you know I'd stay drunk all the time Hangin' round bars and takin' you off of my mind. Going down the alley to see what I can find Goin' down the Printer's Alley Gonna look around and see what I can find Let some Nashville woman Take me home and blow my mind. You long tall woman you sure don't have to talk A long legged good lookin' thing you don't have to talk I can tell that you're from Nashville You do boogie, woogie, wiggle when you walk. You long tall woman you sure don't have to talk A long legged good lookin' thing you don't have to talk I can tell that you're from Nashville You do boogie, woogie, wiggle when you walk...

Spark Em Up

JAY ELECTRONICA "Attack Of The Clones"
Fresh out the gate it's the asiatic Fanatic back at it Spittin black magic Create a world outta black fabric Spark with the light Spark it with life God stay visible My du rag create sound waves I'm jay pivotal Spun the cipher running with christ plus I'm a sniper one with the dice one with the mics and nobodys nicer I payed the price-ah And now I'm heatin up the rostrum Sucka mcs get struck to they knees playin possum Rap guys insane Lyrical messiah, jesus baptize in the flame Sanitize they brain What's the origin Ten thousand sons up in my squadron We break down and build back up to form a organ The flows natural The interglow is celestial The physical mold that's just the clothes for the astral, extra terrestial Emceeing supreme bein All eyes seein Mastered the seen and unseen And what year was that when the atom was cracked In the materials of darkness she laid on her back Shes knows all about you Cause the womb of the mind is the one man That x chromosome came up out you My rhymes like sperm cells thoughts for tales Reproduce like sperm whales sharks and snails Hit your gray matter Then they excrete the data And just stay for 9 months above the bladder This the most mathe-matical Style that you've heard of And every verse I spit bitch it kicks murder And like roberta flack I'm killin you soft Drawin you up in the fire midst revealing your thoughts when allah and his christ bust thru the ceilin with hawks In the face of the earth meet the tip of the drills with a spark That's the judgement It's grievous man This population face to face with this jesus man Came to his own but they mispercieved the lamb, 400 years of slavin for the seeds of abraham

Year Of The Cat

AL STEWART "Year Of The Cat"
On a morning from a Bogart movie In a country where they turn back time You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre Contemplating a crime She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running Like a watercolour in the rain Don't bother asking for explanations She'll just tell you that she came In the year of the cat She doesn't give you time for questions As she locks up your arm in hers And you follow 'till your sense of which direction Completely disappears By the blue tiled walls near the market stalls There's a hidden door she leads you to These days, she says, I feel my life Just like a river running through The year of the cat Well, she looks at you so cooly And her eyes shine like the moon in the sea She comes in incense and patchouli So you take her, to find what's waiting inside The year of the cat Well, morning comes and you're still with her And the bus and the tourists are gone And you've thrown away the choice and lost your ticket So you have to stay on But the drum-beat strains of the night remain In the rhythm of the new-born day You know sometimes you're bound to leave her But for now you're going to stay In the year of the cat

Rain Dance

ABK (ANYBODY KILLA) "Mudface"
[Chorus x2] This is my rain dance (So let it rain) This is my rain dance (I’mma let it rain) This is my rain dance Sorry if I rained on your parade As the world turns and the wind blows I can make it rain with a dance, yo Watch the earth shift like some loose hips I’m calling bluffs from haters with them thunder lips Let me get a second, watch this killa wreck it On top, at times hated but well respected I can make it rain on your parade Anytime you want it I can make it go for days Have you inside looking out at me As I’m dancing in the streets Making it pour with the heat Let the rain fall straight from the sun May it wash away the pain that so hard to overcome Don’t waste your time dripping til you get dropped If there’s anger in your heart, kill it so it never stops Quit living life over a safety net Ain’t no reason to be worried, Come on out and get wet, the waters cold [Chorus x2] In the night, getting light, when it strikes Whoever said that it never hits twice Grab your umbrellas because I’m giving hail Who’s sporting floods I heard the rain coming as well It’s about to get crazy muddy black piles with a face look strangely Cold chills on your neck when the wind blows Every place I stomp on this earth it just explodes Dancing in the puddle like a kid I can see the clouds coming in Shake the underground like a tornado at a full peak Ain’t a Doppler in the world seeing what I bring Let it rain on your face so your minds refreshed Let it flow down your throat so you rhyme the best Some say I bring the fountain of youth when it rains While other sing a song to try and make it go away [Chorus x2] I would let it rain until we all clean Wash away the dirty history this world brings Stay shinin even though I’m muddy Always starin in the face of people lookin at me funny Feel the cold air, don’t be so scared, Just know one day that they’ll get theirs Only a few understand what there is to gain When you underneath the black sky dancing in the rain [Chorus (til end)] Rain, rain, go away Please come back another day [x2]
