JAMES OTTO lyrics - Days Of Our Lives

Song Of The Violin

Original and similar lyrics
The last fifty years Have seen laughter and tears And your hair slowly fade to gray Your children are grown now And it's hard to believe How the years have just all slipped away [Chorus:] But in time you've gained a wisdom That seems to elude the young And each line that now marks your face Tells the stories of all that you've done So fear not the passing of days 'Cause like the song of the violin You only grow sweeter with age As time's pages turn You lived and you learned What truly mattered most Is family and friends And in the end finding peace In the path that you chose [Chorus:] 'Cause in time you've gained a wisdom That seems to elude the young And each line that now marks your face Tells the stories of all that you've done So fear not the passing of the days 'Cause like the song of the violin You only grow sweeter with age Ooh, in time you've gained a wisdom That seems to elude the young And each line that now marks your face Tells the stories of all that you've done So fear not the passing of the days 'Cause like the song of the violin You only grow sweeter with age 'Cause like the song of the violin You only grow sweeter with age The last fifty years Have seen laughter and tears And your hair slowly fade to gray

Nashville Casualty And Life

Kinky Friedman "Old Testaments New Revelations"
(Kinky Friedman) In faded gabardine he used to stand Down by the Union Station with that ol' hat in his hand. A banjo-pickin' devil, a singin' rag-time saint. The young folks called him beautiful, the old folks called him quaint. And the station-master pointed to the sign And they busted him for loiterin' when he was makin' memories rhyme. Out in the falling snow he'd sing his song To a world too cold to listen and too white to sing along. Just a Nashville casualty and life Done left him without a dime. Ever since the good Lord took his wife You'll find him strummin' on the corner all the time. And most of Music City never the saw the world within the song Of a Nashville casualty and life â€' goes on. In the attic sets a dusty hat and cane And the kids they found a banjo there all rusted from the rain. I strummed a little rusty rag-time beat And I sang for every soul out on the street. I could almost see him standin' in the rain His black and blinded face reflectin' all the pain Of all the years and people passin' by And all the ringin' memories that can make a banjo cry. Just a Nashville casualty and life It's a riff that's hell to play. You sings for your livin' in the street And you sleeps in the back of some cafà And most of Music City never sees the world within the song Of a Nashville casualty and life â€' goes on.

Too Soon (Biggie Tribute)

JOELL ORTIZ
[Verse 1:] I remember how I felt when your tape dropped Like 'how the hell can't find a song that ain't hott' Strong voice, your delivery is unmatched Your metaphors made it sure that you run rap Gucci sweater with the Kango hats When you was clubbin lumberjack with the hat to match When you was thuggin, to this day I listen back to your tracks Like you was buggin Felt like strangling that faggot ass nigga who threw the slug in And murked the king Probably some jerk who wasn't worth a thing You gave the ladies all them words to sing Gave the hustlers commandments to live by My how the time has wizzed by I know your proud of Jay, he a big guy Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis Now it's Xbox 360, Playstation on the hip But when it comes to this game Ain't a damn thing changed Damn that man blew out an early flame... cause your still the man [Chorus:] Your candle burned out Way before your legend ever lived I'll see to it that you live Talking bout you to the kids Like this man right here handled his biz Anybody who heard him knows what it is (Blew out too soon) [repeat] [Verse 2:] You wrote my favorite song of all-time Whoever pulled the trigger on you had a small mind Cause see this dude right here was a lot more than rap I guess he was over ya'll head like a bad quarterback Not mine, when I got signed I dwelled on what he spoke Rhyme for the bitches the niggas want what the bitches want end quote Ain't nobody better at putting emotion on the track It's well understand why you cause commotion when you rap Man you had the juice Some people think that you lied, you never died, and you back in the booth Man how I wish that was the truth Because with you back in town... we could lead this game back to it's roots We sincerely miss you The whole world wished every one of them shells clearly missed you Brenda's baby havin babies, now I'm fed up I'll address this one though, you keep your head up [Chorus x2]

Love And Blessings

TOM JONES "Spirit In The Room"
Love and blessings, simple kindness Fell like rain on thirsty lions Fields and gardens, long abandoned Came to life in dust and sand Lovers lives, sweet as honey Touched as if old love was new Bankers pockets overflow with gold and money Prophecies of wealth came true Ain't no song like an 'ol song jol Ain't no song like an 'ol song jolly Ain't no time like good times jol Ain't no time like the good times jolly If the summer kept a secret It was heaven's lack of rain Golden days and amber sunsets Let the scientists complain Ain't no word on, in an image Something called me from my sleep Love and blessings, simple kindness Ours to hold, but not to keep Ain't no song like an 'ol song jol Ain't no song like an 'ol song jolly Ain't no time like good times jol Ain't no time like the good time jolly Everywhere you look Everywhere you go Everybody's looking forward I can't get enough of that I can't get enough of that I can't get enough of that Everybody's looking forward Love and blessings, simple kindness Ours to hold, but not to keep

I Dreamed A Dream

JOE MCELDERRY "Classic"
There was a time when men were kind When their voices were soft And their words inviting There was a time when love was blind And the world was a song And the song was exciting There was a time Then it all went wrong I dreamed a dream in time gone by When hope was high And life worth living I dreamed that love would never die I dreamed that God would be forgiving Then I was young and unafraid And dreams were made and used and wasted There was no ransom to be paid No song unsung, no wine untasted But the tigers come at night With their voices soft as thunder As they tear your hope apart And they turn your dream to shame He slept a summer by my side He filled my days with endless wonder He took my childhood in his stride But he was gone when autumn came And still I dream he'll come to me That we will live the years together But there are dreams that cannot be And there are storms we cannot weather I had a dream my life would be So different from this hell I'm living So different now from what it seemed Now life has killed the dream I dreamed

I Dreamed A Dream

ARETHA FRANKLIN "What You See Is What You Sweat"
There was a time when men were kind When their voices were soft And their words inviting There was a time when love was blind And the world was a song And the song was exciting There was a time Then it all went wrong I dreamed a dream in time gone by When hope was high And life worth living I dreamed that love would never die I dreamed that God would be forgiving Then I was young and unafraid And dreams were made and used and wasted There was no ransom to be paid No song unsung, no wine untasted But the tigers come at night With their voices soft as thunder As they tear your hope apart And they turn your dream to shame He slept a summer by my side He filled my days with endless wonder He took my childhood in his stride But he was gone when autumn came And still I dream he'll come to me That we will live the years together But there are dreams that cannot be And there are storms we cannot weather I had a dream my life would be So different from this hell I'm living So different now from what it seemed Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.
