JAMES OTTO lyrics - Days Of Our Lives

Days Of Our Lives

Original and similar lyrics
Well, I left for work in a hurry. I rushed out the door without sayin' goodbye. I didn't tell her I loved her this mornin', But I'll tell her tonight, I thought to myself. An' as I hurried off t'wards the highway, This truck, outta nowhere, caught me by surprise. He missed me by inches, an' my life passed in front of my eyes. I guess that's the reason that they say: Dance every dance an' live each day, As though it's your last, An' tell those that you love how you feel, Before it's too late. Life is right here and now, We only go around just one time. So embrace 'em, don't waste 'em, For these are the days of our lives. Well as soon as my legs stopped a-shakin', Took a deep breathe an' turned my car around. Oh, I'm gonna take that vacation, That we talked about, startin' right now. Although I know tomorrow will be here, Tomorrow may not always be here for me. 'Cause nothin' in life is for certain but death's guaranteed. And that's the reason that I say: Dance every dance an' live each day, As though it's your last, An' tell those that you love how you feel, Before it's too late. Life is right here and now, We only go around just one time. So embrace 'em, don't waste 'em, For these are the days of our lives. [Instrumental break] Yeah, life is right here and now, We only go around just one time. So embrace 'em, don't waste 'em, For these are the days of our lives. Oh, embrace 'em, don't waste 'em, For these are the days of our lives. Yeah

It's Not Peculiar

Hüsker Dü "Warehouse: Songs Stories"
Is it sensible, life is what it seems When you're living in a dream Could you care enough? While pausing on a thought Can you think of what you've got? (Only you know what matters in your life) When it's pouring out, you're pondering inside And all the times you shouted, everybody cried You've got to learn to compromise To live inside the others' lives It's not peculiar, there's nothing to devise at all On a stormy night, you're sitting on the floor Is it nothing anymore? Waking up to fix it, making up the fight Will it be one more tonight? (Some things we said will never wash away) Taking all of this into another day Recollections of the words we used to say The times you looked into my eyes Whispered vowing not to lie Hear the telephone, it's raining in the fall And you hope I never call Sending messages that never get received But we're trying, I believe (Sometimes we wonder what our lives are for) Taking all of this is taking all of me Sometimes I wish I had the energy When it falls apart like fragments of our lives Give a little bit, and give a lot to die

Cook It Up

AESOP ROCK "Bazooka Tooth"
Cook it up, Spooky, Salute, Look 'Zook'll hook it up to shoop the local Wendy Cooper loopy Low brow, low brim, she asked me, "What's the name?" I flashed the grossest fang in show biz Young Valkyrie's open, "What's yours?" "Um, Jenny, um..." body clocked in a ten-penny sum Sprung colossal, miss, may I process your Pentium? But Ae is hesitating, "My princess, The pigeon holing roles that your predecessor's lunacy in the kismet" Her eyes googled back as that of one unfortunate breed Plus a new kink in the posture "Just don't get all barnacley Or Get P.T. Barnumed in 3D THX sound stereo dismissal Sorry hun, it's just the last few have been a fistful Like, like, them girls you bump into out dumb luck get high innocently kiss once when she's punch drunk Watch her misinterpret the moment tongues touch Crazy Miss Cling-a-lot claim instant one love And you gotta beg your friends to take 'em off your hands like thumbcuffs Or them barbies you'll vibe for a sexy second (lovely) Give it a month; Hyde Heckles Jekyl and she makes Hitler look cuddly But Jenny in the sky with emerald eyes You're so different, so delicious, so the fish I'd be willing to walk the limb with! So let's just get a few things out the way: (okay) I'm clinically bonkers and hate just about everyone God's great earth offers I won't be getting dressed up to impress your family, dear And if I can't wear jeans and sneakers then I won't be lamping there Nope, aggro-pimp, sinfully, finicky nova, back it up no-diggity soldier Magic-touch fingertip donor Own up to your dirty debutant animalistic instincts Ritual courting dance and breeding behaviours (like what?) Like, "I dream of Jeannie and fucking her obscenely" But Jenny could be Jeannie so easily if you'd let me Hell, the bad tact daddy-o Merlin-- 'e' for effort Most of these high-post Fabio world motherfucks make my head hurt Dead up-- I got death in the skull but you'll get used to it ma Dinner and cinema, yes, just cough the bread up Sure, he schleps with naked pockets but I carry dreams Like I wanna be an astronaut after you marry me" (WHAAAAT??) "You're rushing this I feel smothered it's crowding me awfully, dolly I love you, Get the fuck off me! Sorry." (Call me) And I'm circling her like a tiger shark frenzied but friendly "I'm cool, how you feeling Jenny?" (Jenny) Jenny (Jenny) Jenny "So quiet, ooh I like that, so mysterious, I dig it The way you haven't made eye contact with me once in ten minutes I'm just saying girl, I'm dirty-dog raw vintage mixed with mega-low society Mister gutter-fuck etiquette, try me So there it is.. game. I mean it's not like I'm sweating you 'Cause when it comes down to it, most y'all females are the same But now it's your turn baby, spit it out "Okay," she punched me dead in the fuckin mouth and walked away Watch out ladies cause you know he don't love ya Bazooka Tooth is one bad motherfucker He's a low life pimp with a low life game He needs a no life dame with a strobe light frame Cook it up now.. No ring on the finger There ain't no strings attached But if you love television and manic depression Get a carton of cigarettes And we can make it happen Get to mackin' Just leave your bag up on the curb with the trashcan It ain't like I seen you in maxim Relax with the tap dance Lights, camera, lap dance Cook it up now..

I Remember A Rooftop

ALKALINE TRIO
I remember a rooftop making out Downstairs the carpet screamed so loud I waited so long for that night Then I just turned away And I know every street On the west side But I was lost, unfound, not right Maybe there's something wrong inside Now I've got nowhere to go My answer's all that I've got I'm so sorry for so many things That I haven't said yet This is the waiting room I spent my whole life in They gave me a thousand hands so I could count my sins If I'm lucky maybe I'll finish before the roof caves in I lost my life on the first try You found it miles down the line A swollen face with 3 first names You kissed the taste back in my tongue You sucked the smoke out of my lungs And then we slept for days and days and days When we woke up My heart I choked up Had to say I love you way too soon But right there on your couch You loved me too Right there on your couch You loved me too 19 and sober once or twice I caught some junkie's bad advice Up to my eyes in others' problems Couldn't see I never solve them My Only skin and bone And this and pills unknown I took my lousy shot At public recognition Could never pull the trigger If I wasn't shaking I lost my life on the first try You found it miles down the line A swollen face with 3 first names You kissed the taste back in my tongue You sucked the smoke out of my lungs And then we slept for days and days and days When we woke up My heart I choked up Had to say I love you way too soon But right there on your couch You loved me too Right there on your couch You loved me too

Kendrick Lamar's Interlude

AB-SOUL "These Days..."
[Kendrick Lamar:] 24/7, 365, motherfucker I'm still right on time Oh you thought you had me all figured out? Take it from the horses mouth, you'll never understand me I told you, my Plan B is to you win your hearts before we win a grammy These Days ain't shit changed Different toilet, same shit... and I drank a whole gallon of laxatives by accident just to shit on you has-beens Had it been for my past tense, I wouldn't be rapping See these streets made me, broke me down, built me up, drove me crazy Made me hungry, made you hate me, but fuck love It don't make dollars it don't make sense nigga By the way that's DJ Quik nigga Respect or check it These Days I'm a little more focused cause y'all cracked the door and I kicked it open, yellin' get the fuck down or I will shoot I told you [gunshots] not to motherfuckin' move! Be another example, I'll take the whole industry hostage if I have to I'll sabotage this game, a good kid? Yeah that's only in my mama's eyes I seen a dead body at five and that shit made me traumatized So These Days, a little blood on my hands ain't nothing compared To hopping out a minivan, with a mini 22 3s and the homie TuTu Two more YGs Ain't nobody got time for that! These Days it's only time for rap! So Herbert Anthony Stevens, you make or break bread before we break even Before they broke our records we broke records and wrote pieces, of history So These Days? These accolades are meant for we It's only truth that this shit was meant to be T.D.E [Ab-Soul & BJ The Chicago Kid:] Life's in a Traffic Jam Life's in a Traffic Jam Life's in a Traffic Jam Life's in a Traffic Jam Life's in a Traffic Jam Life's in a Traffic Jam Life's in a Traffic Jam Life's in a Traffic Jam [Ab-Soul:] Shit... what more did you expect? HiiiPower For the most part, we go hard for the respect I'm obviously ominous to my competition and if I ain't better than Kendrick than nobody is then! We shared our life with you, shared our light with you even in the darkest of hours In hopes that one day, just maybe, one day the world'll be ours Ha, and now they look up to us like towers for rhyming like we had super powers They should've never let us in these offices... Knowing good and God-damn well how well we've been ducking officers Laughing at the scraps they offered us in the past And now we toast champagne to the thirst we never had! I had my ups and downs but I always left right Rest In Peace Alori Joh... TopDawg for life! And oh yeah... SOUL! I watch that fire that we have gathered around and see that it burns similar to the fire that is inside you...
