JAMES OTTO lyrics - Sunset Man

Sunset Man

Original and similar lyrics
I used to wake up early every day Just to feel the sunrise on my face Me and my woman in the front porch swing Listenin' to the mornin' mockingbird sing Well I woke one day to a screen door slam Found a good-bye note on our nightstand Next to a coffee cup and a wedding band Since then I've been a sunset man [Chorus:] When I see the sunrise comin' up I draw the curtains down 'Cause the mornin' brings her memory around I know it's warm and beautiful and lights up the sky But these days it only hurts my eyes I don't show my face to the afternoon Anything A.M. is just too soon 'Cause it reminds how she up and ran And damned me to be a sunset man [Chorus] It's hard not to cry but I'll do my best And just keep this ole chair facin' west Till she puts that ring back on her hand I guess I'll always be a sunset man Well I'll always be a sunset man Yeah I'll always be a sunset man

Consolation

Cathy Dennis
I just can't console myself Everytime I go away from you I just can't take hold of myself Everytime I go away from you I just can't compose myself I just can't dispose of my time And without attitude There is no reason or rhyme And everybody says since I left you That I look so happy - well I do Another day a better mood What does it prove When my friends say I'm missing you Nobody loves like you do No-one annoys me like you Nobody studys me and watches me The way that you do Nobody stands in your place Since you've been out of my face My friends took your view If thats some consolation to you Gotta take control of myself Gotta turn my head and find someone new But the moment I am out of your sight I'm only looking for you Ain't no consolation at all Knowing I can go and do as I please Well I miss your everyday charm And I miss the insanity Nobody loves like you do No-one annoys me like you Nobody studies me and watches me The way that you do Nobody stands in your place Since you've been out of my face My friends took your view If thats some consolation to you And everbody says since I left you That I look so happy - well I do Another day a better mood What does it prove When my friends say I'm missing you Since I walked out and left you Lost all my glitter and all I hope my freedom now is worth This unpredictable love I'm an emotional waste I've fallen flat on my face It's all coming true So that's some consolation A small consolation..........

AESOP ROCK "Fast Cars, Danger, Fire And Knives"
March The more the merrier Get a couple or more to carry you to the burial F-R-E-S-H Fresh to death and keep it def to the left Well it was Capricorn, Virgo, Aquarius (Check!), Cancer, Leo, Sagittarius (Check!), Pisces, Libra, Scorpio, Aries, Gemini, Taurus Let 'em die for it [Aesop Rock:] Delicate freak show alert the frame Bash all flags where the mag spin park Corroded by the volts that jolt the cold vein Boogie down kits to slip past the guard Def with a mascot of radical mass Megaphone fuzz and a woofer on fritz We are not trained to divert the crash But march face first with a prayer for the blitz Stand up for the cinema fire, simian ire Cold shimmy for the cinnamon sky; Intimate eyes loop all known alleys Scoop the bounty like daddy hires Bazooka to murder Ralphie I curdle with burnt milk, pariah sigh, honor piranha money Count it with the knuckle that hustle bread out a copper tummy One of these rebels could level the marked city But the N.Y. uber alles governor's picky I'll be the jenky Jesus for the species you bleed with Ultra, soldier poach the folklore Jump guns through the ninth gate Jump guns like a noon six burner lit up on the ninth pace Even set among a portion conformed to the blind stage, Never lured by the formal watching imported wines age We bow to the gusto mustered by the mecha-bot Plowed by the public, ushered out the letterbox Wowed by the subject punctured by the helicop Boy meets vermin: the widescreen version Headaches, nausea, vomiting, facial paralysis These area a few of my favorite venomous side effects Mamba, Water Moc, Pit Viper, Diamond Back, Anaconda, Boomslang, Cobra, bite 'em back Spinal tap crabs to the clapper Aesop Rock is the Cadillac of natural disaster Push that button Everybody gotta push something That's why the envelope is where it wasn't I work with the builders, whittle my gorilla military And fizzle 'em through the vigilante filters Who lamps left of the toggle? How'd they fit that ninja in a bottle? A hundred million motherfuckers with they hands out Verse a walking zipper bomb trying to keep the man down Get up, get down Sit up, sit down It's either fancy footwork or get bit by the hounds Face up, face down Laced up, laced down It's either fist to the sky or get bit by the crowd Well it was Capricorn, Virgo, Aquarius (Check!), Cancer, Leo, Sagittarius (Check!), Pisces, Libra, Scorpio, Aries, Gemini, Taurus Let 'em die for it [Aesop Rock] I was chewing my tongue out of my mouth one day When the blood in my beard hit the dirt by the blazers Would have said 'curb it' like any nervous habit 'til maverick told me the coyote pack could smell the wound for acres And labor to cater fang to fisherman gut critters Oblivious to the glimmer of innocent duck feathers Fuck it Want a carnivore war? Bet I'll be at the Bronx Zoo with a lock pick kit On the eject for cockpit bench, helicop clip Nazi cops on kamikaze belly flop shit Roger, hop-fence-kill-a-crop, monster We are the tired and poor, we come for your water Boom! Bounce when the church corrupt When the mayor knuckle dust city worker bugs When the stars finger babies like I flirt with sluts You'll see the fire engine red fox ears perk up Metal kettle unsettling treble howl, settler trembling Measuring mellow on the levitate off the mezzanine Never seen a ton of bricks dressing clean dapper 'til it's pin stripe and skull chunk forty stories after And U.S.A. on a Ketamine disaster Cane for stress Crack if the former left you unimpressed Now pardon me if part of me heart of an oddball, but damn Kumba-fucking-ya, dog Terminally alienated and bent awkward by the bought, Prepped package of the slickest spin-doctors Raised where the paranoid hide tools proper, Like suspicious cargo in a high school locker And it looks like war, quacks like war, So it's Occam's Razor and I'm swayze out the door A hundred million motherfuckers hold me back The hand cannons won't ask 'bout your zodiac, boy Get up, get down Sit up, sit down It's either fancy footwork or get bit by the hounds Face up, face down Laced up, laced down It's either fist to the sky or get bit by the crowd Well it was Capricorn, Virgo, Aquarius (Check!), Cancer, Leo, Sagittarius (Check!), Pisces, Libra, Scorpio, Aries, Gemini, Taurus Let 'em die for it

Tears From My Inkwell

Glen Gray
Sunrise Serenade Glen Gray (#1 in 1939) - words by Jack Lawrence, music by Frankie Carle Good mornin' Good mornin' You sleepyhead It's dawnin' Stop yawnin' Get out of that bed Say the air is soft as silk It's time to get the mornin' milk Come on! Wake up! Get up! Look at the grass Silver in the sun Heavy with the dew Look at the buds You can almost see How they're breakin' through Look at the birds Feedin' all their young In the sycamores But you better get on With your mornin' chores Just take a breath Of that new-mown hay And the sugarcane Looks like tonight There should be a moon Down in lovers' lane There you go daydreaming When it's time that you obeyed That sunrise serenade

It Get's Better

JO DEE MESSINA "Delicious Surprise"
This old world can be cruel sometimes When you're looking for answers You can't seem to find No one understands what you're going through Oh I know it can get lonely out there When you feel like nobody cares Well you look around thinking If they only knew Well I do [Chorus:] I've felt the chill of this world cut down to the bone I've walked many a mile down this road on my own I've been through hell on my knees Come face to face with the devil And I know that it's hard to believe But it gets better Time is a healer but we can't see how When you're caught in the moment And the hurting is now We don't wanna see that maybe somethings Weren't meant to figure out [Repeat chorus] This old world can be cruel sometimes When you're looking for answers Well just keep in mind No you're not alone We're all trying to find our way through this life [Repeat chorus (out)]

Overcoats

JOHN HIATT "Overcoats"
Well I wandered in To the house of mirrors With a camera and an old shotgun I was taking some pictures Of me and my fears And exploding them one by one When all of a sudden Much to my surprise A lady with a fine tooth comb Struck a match up to my face And said, Get out of this place You better leave the ugly truth alone CHORUS: Overcoats Overcoats I ain't never heard you sing Overcoats Overcoats Take off that silly thing Well, I looked her in the eye With a slave-like stare And said, I'm here to talk about the rent Well, she did a double flip Then she buttoned up her lip Went and hid in the oxygen tent Well the image shriveled up And the air got thin As she smiled from behind her mask She said, You can stay here all night But it's gonna cost you your life If I was you, I would be leaving fast. CHORUS I didn't come for information No I've read the daily news It's carved on everybody's face But I'm without illumination Yes, I think we blew a fuse And I'd be much obliged If you could help me locate the place Well at this, she seemed quite baffled And like a little girl She took off her wedding gown Then she stood before the mirror And it all came clear She was married to the lost and found So I left her there sleeping In her honeymoon And I made it through the antidote Well the procedure is brief If you wanna see what's underneath You gotta take off that overcoat Overcoats Overcoats I ain't never heard you sing
