JACK'S MANNEQUIN lyrics - The Glass Passenger

At Full Speed

Original and similar lyrics
Should the canyons burn All night long like the 4th of July We won't need an alibi There's gas in the car Hours 'til sunrise And there's no guarantee That leaving town's gonna set us both free But stayin' here, it's just not what we need Yeah, stayin' here, it's just not what we need Because America shines, yes it does In between the white lines where I found love All alone on a road going nowhere Going nowhere Going nowhere At full speed And I have travelled far And I've seen things that I'd rather not say When you're travellin' it's better that way The darker the secret, the harder you'll keep it But it's no victory Always running away like I do Always know that I'll come back to you Always know that I'll come back to you Because America shines, yes it does In between the white lines where I found love All alone on a road going nowhere Going nowhere Going nowhere At full speed At full speed Because America shines, yes it does In between the white lines where I found love All alone on a road going nowhere Going nowhere Going nowhere At full speed Alone on a road going nowhere Going nowhere Going nowhere At full speed And should the canyons burn I'm catching right off the coast

Going Away

AL GREEN "He Is The Light"
Life can be hard if you live in vain Trials can't be hard if you depend on God I will not worry, I won't be afraid of hope I'll look to Jesus who says, 'I'm the Way' Come and go with me to my Father's house Let's go, let's go All the road is free, come and go with me Let's go, let's go, I'm going away, I'm going away It's nothing but peace When you're gone away It's nothing but joy When you are gone away Let me tell you You'd better go this way, if your woman see the day Let her go, let's go All the road is free, come and go with me Let's go, I'm going away, I'm going away Hey, hey, [?] And I won't be there, I'm going away I don't know about you I find you're nothing but joy, I'm going away We'll pack my bags up With the soul that I've had, I'm going away Nothing but love over there Sometime I happen to [?] I'm going away I'm still way by myself And I say, I'm going away I still wait by myself As I, I'm going away I'll tell you one thing There's nothing but love and joy [?] I'm going away All the way I have to love you I'm going away, I'm going away Jesus' coming back to take me by the hand To lead me to the land, I'm going away

Truckers Atlas

MODEST MOUSE "The Lonesome, Crowded West"
I'm going to Colorado to unload my head I'm going to New York City and that's in New York,friends I'm going to Arizona sex on the rocks all warm and red and we bled and the writing in stall said 'we write our maps in the stalls' I'm going up to Alaska I'm going to get off scot-fucking-free and we all did This truckers atlas roads the ways the freeways and highways don't know The buzz from the bird on my dash Road locomotive phone I don't feel and it feels great I sold my atlas by the freight stairs I do lines and I crossed roads I crossed the lines of all the great state roads I'm going up going over to Montana You got yourself a trucker's atlas You knew you were all hot, well Maybe you'll go and blow a gasket Start at the northwest corner Go down through California beeline you might drive three days and three nights to the tip of Florida Do you speak the lingo? Oh No. No no How far does your road? Oh no, you don't know I'm going to Colorado to unload my head I'm going to New York City and that's in New York, friends I'm going up to Alaska I'm going to get off scot-fucking-free And we all did And the writing in the salt syas We ride on out to the stars I'm going to Arizona Sex on the rocks all warm and red

Sing / A Sky Full Of Stars

MADDI JANE
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh It's late in the evening Glass on the side I've sat with you For most of the night Ignoring everybody here Wish that they would disappear So we could get down now Well I don't wanna know If you're getting ahead of the program I want you to be mine, baby Won't you pull me close And take a step into no-man's land Into a sky full of stars I wanna give you my heart Go on and tear me apart Well I don't care if you do As long as I'm with you Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh This love is a blaze I saw flames from the side of the stage And the fire brigade comes in a couple of days Let it go until our roads are changed Singing we found love at a local rave No, I don't really know what I'm supposed to say But I can figure it out and I can hope and pray Told him my name and said, "It's nice to meet ya" Babe, where you're from, I don't think I've seen ya I already know he's a keeper The smile's making me a believer From this one small act of kindness I'm in D-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-deep, yeah Cause in a sky full of stars You know you're lighter the more it gets dark Cause in a sky, cause in a sky full of stars I think I saw you, ohhhh you oh I think I see you I think I see you

Is That Asking Too Much

DIAMOND RIO "IV"
Is That Asking Too Much (Donny Lowery/Craig Wiseman) Some people say there's no American dream I hear them talking but they don't say a thing I still believe you've got to give it to get Baptize your every aspiration in sweat I vow my head each night and roll up my sleeves 'Cause buddy it's a long hard road to Easy Street Where all the cars go Fast, fast, fast When you step on the gas, gas, gas Nobody else is gonna pass me up going down the road I want a great big house on the hill Every pocket full of hundred dollar bills Givin' me a thrill, thrill, thrill I ain't never known Is that asking too much Am I over the line Am I way out of touch Tell me am I losing my mind I know I won't never get enough Is that asking too much I've never been accused of dreaming too small I never saw no shame in wanting it all I guess that's just the curse of being born poor No matter what you got you always want more Everybody wants a lot, a little inside I'm not the only one with hungry eyes That wants a car that goes Fast, fast, fast When you step on the gas, gas, gas Nobody else is gonna pass me up going down the road I want a great bid house on the hill Every pocket full of hundred dollar bills Man, givin me a thrill, thrill, thrill I ain't never known Is that asking too much Am I over the line Am I way out of touch Tell me am I losing my mind I know I won't never get enough Is that asking too much I just wanna go fast, fast, fast When I step on the gas, gas, gas Nobody else is gonna pass me up going down the road I want a great big house on the hill Every pocket full of hundred dollar bills Man givin me a thrill, thrill, thrill I ain't never known When I step on the gas, gas, gas You know I wanna go fast, fast, fast Nobody better ever pass me up going down the road I gotta build me a house on the hill Every pocket full of hundred dollar bills Man, givin' me a thrill, thrill, thrill I ain't never known Now is that asking too much

Nobody Knows

JJ CALE "Guitar Man"
Words that we say could all be lies someday Scattered to the wind, I don't know Things that we trust could crumble into dust No one can really say it ain't so When you go over a mountain When you're looking down the road When you think you're going backwards It's all in vain, it seems insane When you ask, nobody knows If our actions seem in doubt By the way we move about Seems like we're always on the run Our mark is just a scratch Like holding up a match And trying to see the burn against the sun When we're going over a mountain When we're looking down the road If you think you're going backwards It's all in vain, it seems insane When you ask, nobody knows When all our days are gone You can catch us with a song Something that seemed almost right We've known love and joy Eternity's been our toy Something to play with in the night When we're going over a mountain When we're looking down the road If you think you're going backwards It's all in vain, it seems insane When you ask, nobody knows When I go over my mountain When I'm looking down the road If I think I'm going backwards It's all in vain, it seems insane When I ask, nobody knows
