Nowhere In The Neighborhood

Original and similar lyrics
Standin' here on this old familiar porch, I know this welcome mat ain't meant for me. I can't believe you even opened up the door: You always were much too kind to me. I don't know how I wound up here, I was nowhere in the neighborhood. In this house on this street, We had a chance to live a dream: I'd go back and get it right if I could. 'Cause I was here but I was gone: How could I get so much so wrong? Now I know a home is more than bricks an' wood. There's so much of love I thought I understood, But I was nowhere in the neighborhood. I had everything a man could ever want, But still I was not satisfied. A fool would drink from some forbidden cup, Until he's drunk on his own lies. Yeah, I believed I could live two lives: I was nowhere in the neighborhood. In this house on this street, We had a chance to live a dream: I'd go back and get it right if I could. 'Cause I was here but I was gone: How could I get so much so wrong? Now I know a home is more than bricks an' wood. There's so much of love I thought I understood, But I was nowhere in the neighborhood. 'Cause I was here but I was gone: How could I get so much so wrong? Now I know a home is more than bricks an' wood. There's so much of love I thought I understood, Yeah, I was nowhere in the neighborhood. Nowhere in the neighborhood. No, no.

Wrong

WAYLON JENNINGS "The Eagle"
It was a picture perfect wedding We had the whole world at our feet Everyone thought we were Heading down a lovers easy street We'd have a house out in the country A picket fence, the whole nine yards They said our love would last forever It was written in the stars Wrong I should have known it all along When the future looks too bright Can't be anything but right Wrong I was all but devastated When she told me we were through In a while the heartache faded And I found somebody new I swore that this time would be different I had it all figured out I wouldn't make the same mistakes I knew what love was all about Wrong I should have known it all along When the future looks too bright Can't be anything but right Wrong Wrong Everything was going strong The sky was always blue Thought my dreams had all come true Wrong Wrong.

Civilized Man

JOE COCKER "Civilized Man"
Oh oh I thought I'd see you smile When I walked in the door Thought those arms of yours would be open wide The way they were before Why do you look at me Like I'm some stranger now Why do you pull away When you used to hold me so tight Don't you love me anymore Have your learned to live your life without me Don't you love me, anymore When did the fire go out Where did the feeling go Did it slip away when I wasn't there Baby now I've come home I thought you'd want me babe I was so sure you'd ask me to to stay I thought you'd need this too Guess it didn't work out that way Don't you love me anymore Have you learned to live your life without me Don't you love me anymore Darling When did the fire go out Where did the feeling go Why do you pull away When you used to hold me so close baby Don't you love me anymore Have your learned to live your life without me Don't you love me anymore Don't you love me anymore Have your learned to live your life without me

Just Like Forever

JACKSON BROWNE
(Jackson Browne) [Unreleased Jackson Browne song, sung in concert a few times] It wasn't me at your window, Baby. It wasn't me at your door. It must have been some other fool With his heart in his hand, Coming back for more. I was there when you closed your eyes. But it wasn't me when you came. I just thought I heard you call my name. You were there when I needed someone With your warmth and your style. I was back in the world again And it was real for awhile. I was ready for love to be coming, But not for what love became, And I thought I heard you call my name. Call my name. Now there was something only we knew together Far too simple to explain. Love smiled on us just like forever. You're always leaving town. First you come around. Then you can't be found It always brings me down. There's nothing wrong with my heart, Baby. There's nothing wrong with the world. If a girl don't feel the same way I feel, There's nothing wrong with the girl. Maybe we were too different to love each other. Maybe too much the same. Anyway, I thought I heard you call my name. Call my name. Like you were drifting away down the river. All my voices and curses in the pain Love flows on just like forever. You're always leaving town. First you come around. Then you can't be found And it always brings me down. Da da da da da Da da da dum dum dum Da da da Ohhhh no no no no no no Na na na na na Just like forever. Da da da da da Just like forever. Just like forever.

I Think It's Time She Learned

WAYLON JENNINGS "Ladies Love Outlaws"
How many times must I tell her How many times must I say I won't be around to pick her up again From now on she'll have to find her own way. How many years have I loved her While she stood by so unconcerned But the things she don't know I'll teach her when I go She's been wrong and I think it's time she learned. I think it's time she learned Love can't live when love is not returned She thought that I would always stand by But she's been wrong and I think it's time she learned. I think it's time she learned Love can't live when love is not returned She thought that I would always stand by But she's been wrong and I think it's time she learned. She's been wrong and I think it's time she learned...

Hollywood

THE WALLFLOWERS "The Wallflowers"
You talk so loud, you talk so much and you talk so funny, But honey, what are you talkin' about Something 'bout being, being reimbursed For every unregistered virus. Drainpipes are filled up with dirty rain, And the leisure train is speeding in the diamond lane. With electricity shut off again Leaving the night-life only for the madmen. Oh my God They've sold Hollywood, Burned down my neighborhood, Even shot Robin Hood. An' oh my God, I guess it was never understood, To understand brotherhood Right from wrong And the bad from the good. Well, everybody's got their own smoke-screens With personal armies for everyone in between. With plastic rifles given to every team What a beautiful dream, even bullets have guarantees. An' oh my God They've sold Hollywood, Burned down my neighborhood, Even shot Robin Hood. An' oh my God, I guess it was never understood, To understand brotherhood Right from wrong And the bad from the good. There's the sweetest evil image detector As sweet as nectar, an overrated candy dispenser. She don't give food to eat or anybody, anyplace to sleep, But she can tell you, what you can and what you can't create. An' oh my God They've sold Hollywood, Burned down my neighborhood, Even shot Robin Hood. Oh my God, I guess it was never understood, To understand brotherhood Right from wrong And the bad from the good. An' oh my God They've sold Hollywood, Burned down my neighborhood, Even shot Robin Hood. An' oh my God, Guess it was never understood To understand brotherhood Right from wrong And the bad from the good.
