JAMES MCMURTRY lyrics - Candyland


Original and similar lyrics
Ugly pictures on the wall Traffic outbound slowing to a crawl Evening papers on the manicured lawns It never ceases it just goes on and on The people next door don't mind at all They've got 'em a spiked fence ten feet tall [Chorus:] In the candyland In the candyland Gray squirrel running down the telephone wire Kids around the poolside screaming like cats on fire Cats on fire chasing after the ice cream van But that circus music's got to be hell on the ice cream man He clips his roach and he hauls his load Taking his half out of the middle of the road [Chorus x2] The heels grow tall and the skirts hang low There could be something here but they just won't let it show [Chorus] Same old neighborhood with a colder feel Just the curbs and drains left over from the new deal Smooth young faces on the TV news And They can read copy they don't have to be real Thinking back on the finer days Remembering the pendulum swings both ways [Chorus - repeat to fade]

American Storm

BOB SEGER "Like A Rock"
There's a hard moon risin' on the streets tonight There's a reckless feeling in your heart as you head out tonight Through the concrete canyons to the midtown lights Where the latest neon promises are burning bright Past the open windows on the darker streets Where unseen angry voices flash and children cry Past the phony posers with their worn out lines The tired new money dressed to the nines The low life dealers with their bad designs And the dilettantes with their open minds You're out on the town, safe in the crowd Ready to go for the ride Searching the eyes, looking for clues There's no way you can hide The fire inside Well you've been to the clubs and the discotheques Where they deal one another from the bottom of a deck of promises Where the cautious loners and emotional wrecks Do an acting stretch as a way to hide the obvious And the lights go down and they dance real close And for one brief instant they pretend they're safe and warm Then the beat gets louder and the mood is gone The darkness scatters as the lights flash on They hold one another just a little too long And they move apart and then move on On to the street, on to the next Safe in the knowledge that they tried Faking the smile, hiding the pain Never satisfied The fire inside Fire inside Now the hour is late and he thinks you're asleep You listen to him dress and you listen to him leave like you knew he would You hear his car pull away in the street Then you move to the door and you lock it when he's gone for good Then you walk to the window and stare at the moon Riding high and lonesome through a starlit sky And it comes to you how it all slips away Youth and beauty are gone one day No matter what you dream or feel or say It ends in dust and disarray Like wind on the plains, sand through the glass Waves rolling in with the tide Dreams die hard and we watch them erode But we cannot be denied The fire inside

In Between

I've got a life but ma motto is missing I make music but I'm not a musician I ain't stupid not a lot of'em listen Spot a bottle Gotta follow ambition I see it all from ma bottom position 'It's alright' It might be probable wishing but I tell'em it's cool Stuck where irrelevance rules Hoping of selling with intelligent fools A hell of a duel We're developing tools For some elegant pools Keeping it moving 'till I'm smelling of fuel Fighting fire with fire And though my choir is hired Can't seem to satisfy desire I'm tired Even ma fliers are wired but hay 'maybe I'm wrong' For turning tables with a radio song Can't blame it on the label I'm on I plung cables Coz I'm able The fabels of vagabond Keep'em flaming along Find a chic and leave a stain in her thong It's entertaining But I'm sick Draining liquor 'till this paining is gone Refreng: And I Know I roll I glow And I'll blow Let's grow And get dough Fa sho' I'm a sensible guy We seek redemption then eventually die Just an extension Passing centuries by But hey I know it I was ment to be fly A poet sent from the sky Playing ma role keeping ma entity high 'Mentally dry' I try to do better Tied it together My wings the finset of feathers Design'em in letters And I know I cant be rhyming forever The signs severed So I pay the cost try to find cheddar Ride in fine leather Us mortals are lost with candle-lights imported across I've heard it all Never bought it ofcourse Still sport it for frost Tied to ma neck With pride and respect But I'm the one the diamonds reflect I'm a survivor Riding cassettes Hoping semebody out there's guiding ma checks But I ain't hiding Man I'm live in effect I'm not the idol that the bible expects When I collide with the decks I show it all coz I don't try to forget Ref: *..også la meg fortelle deg mitt point of view. få høre da. mr-fakkin'-magician der du sett. du som e mr-man-of-the-hour. mr-could-have-been-in-the-sun-if-i-wanted-to. jammen få høre da din jævla fitte! ja okey. fyr. ja du kalla mæ fitte, men du kan kalle meg Gud etter at æ er ferdig med her. jaja..*
