JACKSON BROWNE lyrics - Hold Out

That Girl Could Sing

Original and similar lyrics
She was a friend to me when I needed one Wasn't for her I don't know what I'd done She gave me back something that was missing in me She could of turned out to be almost anyone Almost anyone... With the possible exception Of who I wanted her to be Running into the midnight With her clothes whipping in the wind Reaching into the heart of the darkness For the tenderness within Stumblin' into the lights of the city And then back in the shadows again Hanging onto the laughter That each of us hid our unhappiness in Talk about celestial bodies And your angels on the wing She wasn't much good at stickin' around...but She could sing... In the dead of night She could shine a light On some places that you've never been In that kind of light You could lose your sight And believe there was something to win You could hold her tight With all your might But she'd slip through your arms like the wind And be back in flight Back into the night Where you might never see her again The longer I thought I could find her The shorter my vision became Running in circles behind her And thinking in terms of the blame But she couldn't have been any kinder If she'd come back and tried to explain She wasn't much good a saying goodbye...but That girl was sane

When The Deal Goes Down

TOM JONES "Spirit In The Room"
In the still of the night, in the world's ancient light Where wisdom grows up in strife My bewildering brain, toils in vain Through the darkness on the pathways of life Each invisible prayer is like a cloud in the air Tomorrow keeps turning around We live and we die, we know not why But I'll be with you when the deal goes down We eat and we drink, we feel and we think Far down the street we stray I laugh and I cry and I'm haunted by Things I never meant nor wished to say The midnight rain follows the train We all wear the same thorny crown Soul to soul, our shadows roll And I'll be with you when the deal goes down Well, the moon gives light and it shines by night When I scarcely feel the glow We learn to live and then we forgive O'r the road we're bound to go More frailer than the flowers, these precious hours That keep us so tightly bound You come to my eyes like a vision from the skies And I'll be with you when the deal goes down Well, I picked up a rose and it poked through my clothes I followed the winding stream I heard the deafening noise, I felt transient joys I know they're not what they seem In this earthly domain, full of disappointment and pain You'll never see me frown I owe my heart to you, and that's sayin' it true And I'll be with you when the deal goes down

Saturday Night Special

LYNYRD SKYNYRD "Nuthin' Fancy"
Two feets they come a creepin like a black cat do and two bodies are layin' naked. Creeper think he got nothin' to lose. So he creeps into this house, yeah and unlocks the door and as a man's reaching for his trousers shoots him full of thirty-eight holes. It's the Saturday night special got a barrel that's blue and cold ain't good for nothin but put a man six feet in a hole Big Jim's been drinkin' whiskey and playin' poker on a losin' night and pretty soon ol' Jim starts a thinkin somebody been cheatin' and lyin'. So big Jim commence to fightin', I wouldn't tell you no lie. Big Jim done pulled his pistol, shot his friend right between the eyes. It's the Saturday night special got a barrel that's blue and cold ain't good for nothin but put a man six feet in a hole Hand guns are made for killin', they ain't no good for nothin' else. And if you like to drink your whiskey you might even shoot yourself. So why don't we dump 'em people to the bottom of the sea before some ol' fool come around here, wanna shoot either you or me. It's the Saturday night special you got a barrel that's blue and cold you ain't good for nothin but put a man six feet in a hole It's the saturday night special and I'd like to tell you what you could do with it and that's the end of the song

Wild Child

David Wilcox "The Natural Edge"
There's a time only truth buys In the early small hours of the morning When you brushed the sleep from my eyes And told me stories Electricity The day scrapes the sidewalk Sugar turns to salt Talk is cheap A half-remembered glance from a dirty window I want to take a little walk In the cool night air and see Which way the wind blows There's another side to the city A life within a life unknown Like blood in the veins of a body it flows Down the alley nobody knows Checkpoint charlie Eyes from a garbage can Reveal the man Is on his toes I want to take a little walk In the cool night air and see Which way the wind blows I want to take a little walk In the cool night air and see Which way the wind blows She gives a sky feeling to the night Waiting 'til you weaken for a moment She'll buy the diamonds If you'll buy the pearls For the moment Electricity The night lights a candle Love turns to fire I want to take a little walk In the cool night air and see Which way the wind blows There's another time to the city A time within a time undone You can untie a knot You can break a deal You can sell what you bought A cut will heal A bone will mend A road will bend Street light blinding Headlight shining Take a little walk In the cool night air and see Which way the wind blows
