I Got By In Time

Original and similar lyrics
Saw a girl that I used to know I was deep in thought at the time To recognise the face at first 'Cause I was probably looking at mine Well she was the only girl I've ever loved But my folks didn't dig her so much I was young This is serious To me she was the world (she was my world now) I thought I'd never live without her, But I got by in time Well let me tell you now, Saw a guy that I used to know Man he'd changed so much I think it hurt him to say 'hello', 'Cause he hardly opened his mouth Yeah well he was my best friend a few years ago Truly inseperable We were young We were full of ideals We were gonna pull this whole world But something happened I didn't know why But that's the way that it goes. I suppose, What you say - what you do Don't mean nothing, nothing at all And all the bonds you make between ya Can be broken any time you want now Please tell me if my philosophy's wrong I've got to know the truth I don't mean to offend anyone but, You know it's something that I do, oh- So nice to see you tonight, And I'm so glad that you came Some of the people standing outside, say Sure feel the same Yeah my point is in a round about way Given time he'll always forget 'Cause the memories That ... me on To me everything (you're everything now) And it always will be mine, yeah And no one can take them away

AMANDA PALMER "Who Killed Amanda Palmer"
Did you find it? Play the song We had written We would sit down And start again From the beginning It was finally time To stop whining And start doing Anything, something To make them believe we were living And we kept on bleeding Long after the signatures Dried on the paper I stole from Melissa's Macbeth And oh how I needed so much to believe in it Isn't it sick how I thought that I knew you to death? How romantic Ushering in the new year With our childish antics And now soon after The gullible glimmer of hope turned to sarcastic laughter And we were intelligent people with eyes in our heads It's astonishing, is it? I thought you were just plain shy Oh, quiet kind of guy With the banner man waiting Behind every corner A delicate soldier, the loner How lonely was I? There is still time We could still try It's very difficult When no one's there to Catch you in the rye You kept saying That the black cat [?] of godsend At least it made living worth hating You kept taking the bad with the worst Like some curse that your mother was making Oh and isn't it funny years later We'd look at it broken and shaking our heads laughing If we had known back then what trouble it would bring To actually want to create something beautiful Now we've turned into those pitiful people Too scared to touch And drinking way too much Oh, it's typical isn't it? Say it, you cynically asked for it Didn't we ask for it? Didn't we want to be lesser and lesser [?] Didn't it, didn't it, didn't it.. There is still time We could still try But it's very difficult When no one's there to Catch you in the rye

Knockin'

B.O.N. (Band Ohne Namen) "No.1"
lyrics: G. Gross, C. Capek, A. Humpe music: A. Humpe  Baby, I know about the trouble that you've had with me And that you're furious and upset and mad at me And I know I must have hurt you in every single way And you know I saw you cryin' on every single day  But I was livin' in the fast lane and left you behind, I didn't treat you right and I didn't treat you kind. I wish that we could just forget all the bad times, 'Cause I need you right here, right at my side  'Cause every day you helped me up when I was down And every day you picked me up when I was on the ground, Every day I wish we could turn back the hands of time And then you'd still be mine.  Refrain: Now I'm knockin' on your door I want you rollin' on the floor This time it's different than before You've had enough but I want more Now I'm ringing on your bell (on my bell) I'm so lonely, you can tell (I can tell) Now you're gone and you are well (I am well) Can't you see, I feel like hell  I just wanna hold you the way I held you way back when, Before the shouting, the screaming and the trouble began, And I'm sure I wouldn't make the same mistakes that I've done Because the saying's true, you don't know what you got til it's gone  I should have noticed before that something wasn't going right, I should have been there when you waited for me all night, I should have helped you when you needed me and pleaded with me, I should have treated you the same way that you treated me.  'Cause every day you helped me up when I was down And every day you picked me up when I was on the ground, Every day I wish we could turn back the hands of time And then you'd still be mine.  Refrain 3 x
