JACK'S MANNEQUIN lyrics - The Glass Passenger

Doris Day

Original and similar lyrics
I saw her wait, waitng at the bus stop Watching as her tears dropped Like pennies down a well Oh well We can drink until the sun comes up I never let a good thing go So I'll stay here if you're not leaving I am on your side This house is empty We could cross the line And we could make a big mistake The silence breaks and you hear me say "Don't go, don't go so far away" (You don't have to go) "Don't go, don't go so far away" You don't have to go I saw your man, fast car and a dark suntan You said he's in a punk-rock band But baby, punk-rock's dead Oh well We can drink till you forget about him It's not like he waits up for you I'm sure he'd do the same thing too But I am on your side This house is empty We could cross the line And we could make a big mistake The silence breaks and you hear me say "Don't go, don't go so far away" (You don't have to go) "Don't go, don't go so far away" You don't have to I knew it was a crime I did it anyway I tell him we're like magnets I tell him I feel no shame If I crawl into your blood Can I sleep under your skin? C'mon let me in Don't make me wait I am on your side This house is empty We could cross the line And we could be making a big mistake The silence breaks and you hear me say "Don't go, don't go so far away" [x5] You don't have to go You don't have to go

Empty

DEL AMITRI "Waking Hours"
Don't get so distressed If the good life won't arrive You've been reading S.O.S. When it's just your clock reading 5:05 And why are you so possessed By the thought that she got free And why are you figuring who's the best When just your luck ran out and she chose me We do not lie side by side and mock the thought of you And I don't take her hand and ask Is this what he used to do? 'Cos I just want to free her from Your jails of jealous dreams 'Cos at least a house when it's empty Stays clean I won't pretend That I was simply swayed It was a two way thing not a Three day fling No secrets kept, no truth betrayed And here's the house that held The nightmare that went on And you're sitting there wishing you'd never been born With that self-inflicted crown of thorns We do not lie side by side and mock the thought of you And I don't take her hand and ask Is this what he used to do? 'Cos I just want to free her from Your jails of jealous dreams 'Cos at least a house when it's empty Stays clean I won't pretend That I'm the saviour of the innocent and bad But put two withered old blooms in a couple of rooms And they'll behave like lunatics and crave what makes them sad So here's a card that says Happy twenty-second birthday and I wish you were dead And here's a house that held a bevy of devils and an angel as well And you want what I've got When all I've got is guilt And a room that won't stay still Filled with pockets full of crumpled up money and a mantelpiece littered with bills 'Cos at least a house when it's empty Stays clean

Ghosts In Empty Houses

JUKEBOX THE GHOST "Safe Travels"
In this country at any given time There are two million empty houses And one of them once was mine There were twelve million spirits drifting In twelve million empty rooms Waving their ghostly arms at the stars And howling sad songs by the light of a crescent moon Yeah they claw at the air and they scream But they don't make a sound Should've exercised the demons and their secrets While they were 'round Don't you think it's funny how quickly things can turn around All our lives are drifting like ghosts inside and empty house Everything is falling to pieces and its just as well Because every little piece of heaven brings a little piece of hell In my darkest hour when death is knocking at my door I can feel the tug of a thousand fingers But what are the ghosts here for They say: Beware, be wary Of secrets that you may keep Cause if they're any indication of what sorrow brings you Then don't take your demons to sleep And if you take a little time To think about yourself You just might find that the Direction that you're headed is closer to hell Don't you think it's funny how quickly things can turn around All our lives are drifting like ghosts inside and empty house Everything is falling to pieces and its just as well Cause every little piece of heaven brings a little piece of hell So you might find yourself drifting Like a ghosts inside empty house after empty house Looking for someone but lately finding not a soul to tell

Breaking The Silence

QUEENSRYCHE "Operation: Mindcrime"
They told me to run, but just how far? Can I go wearing the black mask of fear? The hate in my eyes always gives me away The tension building slowly Now I lost everything I had in you Nothing we shared means a thing Without you close to me I can't live without you Breaking the silence of the night Can't you hear me screaming? I look for your face in the neon light You never answer me There's no direction to my stare No more flame burning in my heart anymore Quiet, I keep it to myself Until the sun sets slowly I hear your voice in the evening rain calling Nothing will keep us apart No more lies and fear There's no end to our story Breaking the silence of the night Can't you hear me screaming? I look for your face in the neon light You never answer I could make all the wrong seem right If you were by my side I'd gather all the tears you cried And hide them deep underground Can't look back, it's just a waste of time Can't erase this hate from my eyes Breaking the silence of the night Through the streets I'm screaming Looking for you in the neon light Why don't you answer me? Breaking the silence with my cries Can't you hear me screaming? We could make all this wrong seem right But you never answer me

Baby You've Got To Go

Kurtis Blow "Tough"
Clap your hands everybody If you got what it takes 'Cause I'm Kurtis Blow and I want you to know That these are the breaks Breakes on a bus brakes on a car Breaks to make you a superstar Breaks to win and breaks to lose But these here breaks will rock your shoes And these are the breaks Break it up break it up break it up! If your woman steps out with another man (That's the breaks that's the breaks) And she runs off with him to Japan And the IRS says they want to chat And you can't explain why you claimed your cat And Ma Bell sends you a whopping bill With eighteen phone calls to Brzil And you borrowed money from the mob And yesterday you lost your job Well, these are the breaks Break it up, break it up, break it up Throw your hands up in the sky And wave 'em 'round from side to side And if youdeserve a break tonight Somebody say alright! (All right) Say ho-oo! (Ho-oo!) And you don't stop Keep on, somebody scream! (Owwwww!) Break down! Breaks on a stage, breaks on a screen Breaks to make your wallet lean Breaks run cold and breaks run hot Some folks got 'em and some have not But these are the breaks Break it up, break it up, break it up! Break down! To the girl in brown, stop messing around (Break it up, break it up) To the guy in blue, whatcha gonna do? To the girl in green, don't be so mean And the guy in red, say what I said Break down! Brakes on a plane, brakes on a train Breaks to make you go insane Breaks in love, breaks in war But we got the breaks to get you on the floor And these are the breaks Break it up, break it up, break it up! Break down! Yo! Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it! Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it! Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it! Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it! You say last week you met the perfect guy (That's the breaks, that's the breaks) And he promised you the stars in the sky He said his Cadilac was gold But he didn't say it was ten years old He tok you out to the Red Coach grill But he forgot the cash and you paid the bill And he told you the story of his life But he forgot the part about...his wife! Huh! Huh! Well, these are the breaks! Break it up, break it up, break it up! Break down!

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
