Hostage

Original and similar lyrics
This might hurt Come back to earth, come back to earth We don't mean to drag you down Thin air, slingshot You always find somewhere to wander off When I need you around So you wait until the last song ends You say I was your only friend But I won't hold you hostage And I won't set you free I'll always leave the lights on And you'll return to me Please don't lose the keys I won't hold you hostage I won't hold you Pain recedes All things will pass And this is gonna pass, pass I'm just trying to keep you calm Oh and the fates Of all your dreams they might soon slip away And miss you when they're gone And we waited for the cab outside I offer you a place to hide But I won't hold you hostage And I won't set you free I'll always leave the lights on And you'll return to me Please don't lose the keys I won't hold you hostage Please don't lose the keys I won't hold you hostage This might hurt Come back to earth, come back to earth yeah I won't hold you hostage And I won't set you free I'll always leave the lights on And you'll return to me No I don't want your ransom Just say you'll never leave Just say you'll never leave I'll always leave the lights on And you'll return to me Please don't lose the keys I won't hold you hostage Please don't lose the keys I won't hold you hostage Please don't lose the keys I won't hold you hostage I won't hold you

Can't Hold Me Down

HOODIE ALLEN "Leap Year"
[Intro] You know, in the run in the Anchorman, it was like "I'm serving it up, hot bacon and eggs." Thank you, thank you for rocking out tonight You could be anywhere in the world But you're right here I got my special guest, Tayyib Ali man, We bringing this all the way from the key-stone state. Chilling in the empire state 'Til we run the entire state. [Verse 1 - Hoodie Allen] Sitting in my '97 Honda, Yolanda Be cool, she just want to go to Benihana. These fools parking in my mother fucking spot Got a little bit of nerve and a lot a bit of pot I can smell it while she hanging out the passenger side Of her best friend's ride and she's trying just to holla at me Knows how to fight, punched her in the left eye Chicks be getting feisty 'cause they fighting for the best guy. Yeah I'm bumping Biggie but I've never been to Bedstock. Counting out my money in a shoebox at my bedside. That's old-school, no city bank Got another girl, all she listens to is Chiddy Bang. Everyone around me keep complaining that the city change, Listening to Sirius radio with the silly face. All these bitches hatin' yeah I oughta name them Will n' Grace Gotta fat chance, I can fill the space. [Chorus] I said please miss, I don't believe it You touched me once I could feel it, Ain't no way that I'd ever leave it We could float way up to the ceiling They can't hold me down, they can't hold me, They can't hold me down, they can't hold me. They can't hold me down, they can't hold me, They can't hold me down, can't hold me down. [Verse 2 - Tayyib Ali] Young boss man, they ain't heard of me though Off top the convertible flow, and everywhere that I go I seem to need you, so you know I'm gonna to do anything I need to. Hold up. They say I changed, picture that with a Polaroid. We in the fast lane, you hear the motor roarin' I had to pop-shove-it, 'cause you went overboard. I left Charlotte still boring like like I'm Okafor. And they know they can't hold me down, Hoodie we on top this go around' It's hard to holla' at you, 'cause I'm outta' town. In the sky, but they manufacture me from the ground. Nineteen with the dream of having it all, I need big money, so I'm stacking it all, You be my main girl, and I can be a dog You be here when I'm up, just be down when I fall. [Chorus] I said please miss, I don't believe it You touched me once I could feel it, Ain't no way that I'd ever leave it We could float way up to the ceiling They can't hold me down, they can't hold me, They can't hold me down, they can't hold me. They can't hold me down, they can't hold me, They can't hold me down, can't hold me down. [Verse 3 - Hoodie Allen] Nowadays my phone don't ring Texts don't blow up Heads so big that my neck won't show up. But, I'm up and at 'em, keep on moving know the deal Got a super bad broad but she doing Jonah Hill And my suit is half off and my ties all knotted. These hippies really love me because my buzz organic They pick me at the market stick their pitchforks on it Then they stick me in the garbage like the shit's gone rotten Man I'm sick to my stomach so I guess I'm Johnny Appleseed Warren Sapp on me the way I go and tackle bees, Who would go and tackle Beta, I'm fishing for these compliments, You Mickey D's with condiments I'm Licky Lee with confidence That's got me on these continents, I'm on to the next place Got a little love, I don't even need a sex tape Gotta' live it up, I don't even need an X-Ray They see through all bull homie, exnay [Outro] I said please miss, I don't believe it You touched me once I could feel it, Ain't no way that I'd ever leave it We could float way up to the ceiling They can't hold me down, they can't hold me, They can't hold me down, they can't hold me. They can't hold me down, they can't hold me, They can't hold me down, can't hold me down. I said please miss, I don't believe it You touched me once I could feel it, Ain't no way that I'd ever leave it We could float way up to the ceiling They can't hold me down, they can't hold me, They can't hold me down, they can't hold me. They can't hold me down, they can't hold me, They can't hold me down, can't hold me down.

Willow

JASMINE THOMPSON "Under The Willow Tree"
Down by the water, under the willow Sits a lone ranger, minding the willow He and his wife, once lived happily Planted a seed, that grew through the reeds Summers and winters, through snowy Decembers Sat by the water close to the embers Missing out the lives that they once had before I WOULDN’T LEAVE YOU I WOULD HOLD YOU WHEN THE LAST DAY COMES WHAT IF YOU NEED ME WON’T YOU HOLD ME ON THE LAST DAY, OUR LAST DAY Mr. & Mrs., dreamed of a willow Carving their names, into their willow If he had spoken, love would return spoken inside, too soft to be heard Summers and winters, through snowy Decembers Sat by the water, remembering embers Missing out the lives that they once had before I WOULDN’T LEAVE YOU I WOULD HOLD YOU WHEN THE LAST DAY COMES WHAT IF YOU NEED ME WON’T YOU HOLD ME ON THE LAST DAY, OUR LAST DAY AHHHHH, AHHHHH… Somewhere the timing will all come together The mishaps will turn into sunny Decembers The lovers – will be able - to find their willow I WOULDN’T LEAVE YOU I WOULD HOLD YOU WHEN THE LAST DAY COMES I WOULDN’T LEAVE YOU I WOULD HOLD YOU WHEN THE LAST DAY COMES WHAT IF YOU NEED ME WON’T YOU HOLD ME ON THE LAST DAY, OUR LAST DAY COMES AHHHHH, AHHHHH…

Copper Canteen

JAMES MCMURTRY "Complicated Game"
Honey don't you be yellin' at me when I'm cleaning my gun I'll wash the blood of the tailgate when deer season's done We got one more weekend to go And I'd like to kill one more doe So I'll shovel the side walk again cause you're still in a stew And I bet the bridge tender's widow won't mind that I can't please you She sure got the run of the men Out here where the pickin's are thin there's not much to do I woke up last night In the grip of a fright Scared to breathe for I might make a noise But this life that we crave So little we save 'tween the grandparent's graves and the grandchildren's toys We grew up hard And our children don't know what that means We turned into our parents before we were out of our teens Through series of Chevys and Fords The occasional spin round the floor at the Copper Canteen Now the bix boxes out on the bypass are shavin us thin I guess we'll hold on a couple more years till the pension kicks in Then we'll sell all the stock in the store Leave only the lock on the door and wonder what then When I wake up at night In the grip of a fright And you hold me so tight to your chest And your breath on my skin Still pulls me back in Till I'm weigthless and then I can rest So if Monseigneur should pull you aside as you're leavin the church And I'm out on the ice droppin lines for the walleye and perch Tell 'em it's not your job to bring me to the fold And I'd rather stand out in the cold And honey I know The woodpile's low and you can't close the flue So I'll split up a couple more chords 'fore the winter time's through Hold on to your rosary beads Leave me to my mischievous deeds like we always do

How Do You Stop

JAMES BROWN "Godfather Of Soul"
Hard bodies Soft emotions So fast, so smart The world at your feet But what about your heart? Fame and power can't hold you tight In the weak (?) end of the night How do you stop (tell me) Before it's too late? You choose and you lose If you hesitate How do you stop (tell me) Before it's too late? You think love will wait You don't hold on And then it's gone (2x) You've had some success- A new couple of friends You're caught in the good life You thought it would never, never end One day then you're in your prime … … …hands of time How do you stop Before it's too late? (ooh) You choose and you lose If you hesitate How do you stop Before it's too late? You don't hold on And then it's gone How do you stop, a runaway train? How do you stop, the cold, cold rain? How do you stop, love from leaving? How do you stop, … How do you stop (how do you stop?) Before it's too late? (how do you stop?) How do you stop? (say it now!) How do you stop? (say it again!) How do you stop (say it) Before it's too late? You choose and you lose If you hesitate (hesitate) How do you stop Before it's too late? (etc…)
