Release Me

Original and similar lyrics
I've been running such a long time I've been hiding from the truth I've been battered, been broken, been buried Now I'm death proof, death proof And I been known to take a big chance But I can't waste another shot at redemption Oh, I'm ready don't let me go passing through the wrong hands, wrong hands My confidence is in crisis mode, your fingertips well they know the code Release me and take another piece of me and there won't be another left C'mon release me, release me take another piece of me And there won't be another left unless you let go, unless you let go I've been waiting for the sun to shine Another winter ends, the winter's starting over We met beside a land mine waiting for the wind to blow Now I'm in trouble with these friends of mine A change was in my blood, I lost my sense of direction I dragged us to the bright light, life is like a TV show My fuse is set, I'm pressing go, your match is lit but it's burning slow Release me and take another piece of me and there won't be another left C'mon release me, release me take another piece of me And there won't be another left unless you let go I'll be nothing but sand falling down through your fingers to the ground below Through your fingers to the ground below Yeah I've been running, I've been running I've been running such a long time Release me and take another piece of me and there won't be another left Try to believe me, release me take another piece of me And there won't be another left unless you let go Unless you let go [x8]

Running On Ice

BILLY JOEL "The Bridge"
There's a lot of tension in this town I know it's building up inside of me I've got all the symptoms and the side effects Of city life anxiety I could never understand why the urban attitude Is so superior In a world of high rise ambition Most people's motives are ulterior Sometimes I feel as though I'm running on ice Paying the price too long Kind of get the feeling that I'm running on ice Where did my life go wrong I'm a cosmopolitan sophisticate Of culture and intelligence The culmination of technology And civilized experience But I'm carrying the weight of all the useless junk A modern man accumulates I'm a statistic in a system That a civil servant dominates And all that means is that I'm running on ice Caught in the vise so strong I'm slipping and sliding, cause I'm running on ice Where did my life go wrong You've got to run You've got to run As fast as I can climb A new disaster every time I turn around As soon as I get one fire put out There's another building burning down They say this highway's going my way But I don't know where it's taking me It's a bad waste, a sad case, a rat race It's breaking me I get no traction cause I'm running on ice It's taking me twice as long I get a bad reaction cause I'm running on ice Where did my life go wrong You've got to run You've got to run Running on ice Running on ice Running on ice Running on ice

Who Else

MICK JENKINS "The Water[s]"
[Chorus:] Tell me who else do you know Know that you ain't felt it like this in a long time Take yo shoes off at the door And the flow stay clean for a long time, long time Southside nigga from the go So many times in the wrong place at the wrong time Double cup the water sip slow Double cup the water sip slow Tell me who else do you know Know that you ain't heard it like this in a long time Take yo shoes off at the door And the flow stay clean for a long time, long time Southside nigga from the go So many times in the wrong place at the wrong time Double cup the water sip slow Double cup the water sip slow Tell me who else do you know Tell me who else do you know Know that you ain't heard it like this Know that you ain't heard it like this Know that you ain't heard it like this I ain't Never been a loner Although I feel like Jonah in the ocean Conversations with the big fish Danny ocean what a gamble they could miss this I pray that you don't An olive branch symbolized that the water had stopped Like if you got trees and truths before the waters had dropped I know you saw signs Black Mel Gibson with the passion I been gifted with the rapping Niggas tripping I been trapping Gotta move so many keys to unlock the boxes we trapped in Somebody tell the captain We been ready to take off for like 400 years now We're blinded through our ears now Plus it's all smoke n mirrors now In conversation I Piers Morgan my peers now just to keep it authentic And often it's a shadow of Paul Pierce how well we uh play for the green All the while Never noticing the changing of scene Like I was gone leave this bitch but if y'all gone roll up I might as well stay for the green And I can't go That's a dark tale So much weeping you'll be giving birth to willows in this shark tale So much weighing on his mind every bar like a barbel Every crack in his voice got coke from the cartel I ain't tellin jokes this is heart felt Tell me who else do you know Know that you ain't heard it like this in a long time Take yo shoes off at the door don't disrespect flow stay clean for a long time long time Southside nigga from the go So many times in the wrong place at the wrong time Double cup the water sip slow Double cup the water sip slow Sip on this country time fam I been squeezing my lemons Squigi my windows I'm tryna see it clearly Spit it in brail so I know you feel me the shit is bumpin Like cucumbers I brought the reign for a new thunder Now [Chorus]

The Fall

ANE BRUN "Changing Of The Seasons"
I'll get off this boat in a minute 'cause I know you'll be safer without me in it then you called I love you so don't ever let me go I will fall to the ground at the time that we meet we were whole then we peeled off piece by piece of our souls we were wrong to stay this long let me go let me fall to the ground I'm waiting for you to disarm me I'll go off if you don't remove this weight off of me

Off And Running

JAMES MCMURTRY "Where'd You Hide The Body"
Answer me when I call to you What became of the life I knew Tell me why I can't be free Tell me what you expect of me I'm so down about it I can't sleep at night I sit watching the bugs as they bounce off the light Answer me when I'm calling out Tell me what's all the noise about Explain to me the rules of love Tell me just what I'm guilty of I somehow I must've missed it I never knew I was blind Repeat it real slow so I get it this time I'm off and running to take what's mine I'm off and running again I 'm off and running To take what's mine I'm off and running And I won't get caught this time With my soul on empty and my face to the wind I'm off and running I'm off and running again Answer me when I call your name What'd you do with my ball and chain? I'm out here in the open air And I can't find it anywhere And I'm so lost without it It was such a part of me I guess I'll get along How hard can it be?
