My Racing Thoughts

Original and similar lyrics
She's a black cat hanging 'round my doorstep I'll need all day tomorrow to recover from today I was boxing with my shadow At a stoplight when the clocks changed It was midnight I was mixed up When she called to drag the lake I think I'm running short on inspiration She's running long on borrowed time We break with speed That girl can read my racing thoughts She asks the questions I take the floor She takes her shots Taught her a lesson About a forced confession We break with speed That girls can read my racing thoughts My racing thoughts My racing thoughts So I'll try to keep her steady now But steady's not her strong suit I was raised going to church But couldn't practice what they preached So I'm hiring a DJ For the eve of our destruction It was midnight I was mixed up When she found me on the beach I think I'm running low on inspiration She's running long on borrowed time We break with speed That girl can read my racing thoughts She asks the questions I take the floor She takes her shots Taught her a lesson About a forced confession We break with speed That girls can read my racing thoughts My racing thoughts My racing thoughts

All I Need

JAMIE MCDELL "Six Strings And A Sailboat"
Tricky thoughts are running round my head About the missing songs I found under my bed And someone stole my ‘How to live plan’ But my head says ‘what the hell man’ I’ve been driving for a couple days My GPS is broken but I’ll find my way I’m thinking of the kind of tattoos That best represents my favourite heirloom That’s all I need man That’s all I need That’s all I need man That’s all I need Gravel roads are getting me inspired But I should stop the car and check my tires Someone stole my only floor jack But I think I know the way to walk back That’s all I need man That’s all I need That’s all I need man That’s all I need I got one big box in the back of my car Filled with all the things I’ve needed this far With an old guitar and brand new strings And I’ll pray to god that he’ll help me sing I need no shoes, one pair could do With my sleeping bag and nothing to lose I got this far and I’m starting to see it won’t take Too long till I’m right back to me That’s all I need man That’s all I need man That’s all I need That’s all I need man That’s all I need That’s all I need man Tricky thoughts are running round my head About the missing songs I found under my bed

Bastard

Ian Hunter "You're Never Alone With a Schizophrenic"
(Ian Hunter) Vestal Virginia - ain't got a bad thought in ya - you're a bastard Mean as a killer - instinct that's within ya - you're a bastard. Laughs like a drain and it messes up my brain Cos you know I like the pain of never knowing Space cow I'll chew the bad blood running through ya Kiss you as you hit the floor 'cos you don't even know that you're a bastard There's a crisis in the kitchen but that don't stop you bitchin' - you're a bastard You got that Yellowjacket touch, with the stings that hurt so much - you're such a bastard Flirting in the shadows, aiming all those little arrows, you're as shallow as the gallows you got me in to. (yeah) Voodoo dolls gonna line the room, handcuffs glinting in the gloom, one day you'll find that hidden door, inside everyone screams that you're a bastard. (you're such a) You twist me til I'm lame, then you spin the coin again - you're such a bastard You're so naturally perverse, you ain't even gotta rehearse -you're such a bastard Fly like a witch, without running in some pitch Why don't you break the switch that takes me over My prison is your brain, your prisoner's insane Forgot all the keys, you can break the chains but you don't even take the blame you bastard. (Bastard, bastard) I'm enjoying that lately, you know just the beginnings (bastard) The agony and the ecstacy meeting at the middle of my mouth The agony and the ecstacy can't spit it out. Sometimes on a rainy day I draw you. Hope for....love.

Boys In Blue

Exploited "Massacre"
Police sirens break the air They´re on their way Riots break out on the streets Someone´s got to pay Why has it got to this They wonder why Why can´t they realise Someone´s going to die They´re after you Boys in blue Boys in blue Running after you Police vans screech to a halt Out jump the law Chasing youths down the street Beat them with a stick You resist, they hit you more What can you do Dragged away into their van So they can bully you No-one´s left on the streets Its quietened down The problem still exist Solutions must be found Tension in the cities It´s running high It´s going to explode soon You´re all about to die The government´s not interested They don´t care at all They think that jailing you It´s the problem solved My time in prison I resent them more Why can´t they face the facts That their policies are wrong

World In Motion

JACKSON BROWNE "World In Motion"
(Jackson Browne & Craig Doerge) Sun going down in the USA Down on Main there's a family sleeping in a doorway Around the corner you can hear the sound People dancing around the golden calf Those who have not, those who have On the billboards and the T.V. screens They got food and cars and toys and trucks and jeans Like a homeless child's fitfull dreams Smiling faces free from wanting Life's abundances beyond counting World in motion - speed your changes Close your distances, find your angels Lose your fears and meet your dangers World in motion Once we were running through smoke and fire Running into the sun In the rush of youth, for love and truth Our deeds were done Now we awake with a world at stake And a race we run We run Sun going down on the USA Sun coming up a hundred years away On another world and another time Things like hunger, greed and hatred One way or another, gonna be eradicated World in motion - speed your changes Close your distances, drive your angels Lose your fears and meet your dangers World in motion 'Till the world I look out at this world and see Is the world I know this world can be You have a volunteer in me Now come on

Running From Me

JON FOREMAN
I'm stuck with these sins I'm hoping maybe time can resolve them I'm a lying, cheating, thieving coward Who's trying to follow Christ I'm hoping he can fix this old dog with new tricks 'Cause death is my only device Yeah death is my only device I said I needed room to breathe I said I needed truth, break free But all that's truth that I was running from you Turns out I was running from me There's a girl who lives down my street She says the flowers take care of the bees She tells me I'm poor and my daddy's at war Who's going to take care of me? Now if history is violence and sex I'd rather not pay my respects If I've caused offence If I'm too direct I'm just trying to talk some sense I'm politically incorrect I said, I said I needed room to breathe I said I needed truth, break free But all that's truth that I was running from you Turns out I was running from me La, la, la, la, la, la Running away from me La, la, la, la, la, la Running away from me I've been giving this a lot of thought Who am I, who on earth is God? The answer ain't kind and the reason's fine But by God it's the only answer I got It's the only chance I've got I said I needed room to breathe I said I needed truth, break free But all that's truth that I was running from you Turns out I was running from me It turns out I was running from me La, la, la, la, la, la Running away from me La, la, la, la, la, la Running away from me
