JAMES TAYLOR lyrics - Before This World

Angels Of Fenway

Original and similar lyrics
86 summers gone by Bambino put a hex on the Bean We were living on a tear and a sigh In the shadow of the Bronx machine Man, you could feel it smoulder The whole town had an attitude Then you'd get a little chip on your shoulder Say something that's downright rude Oh, damn them Yankees Outspending everybody two to one Picking up on the cream of the crop Stealing everyone's favorite son Angels of Fenway Hear our prayer We have been chastened We have been patient Grandmama was a Fenway fan Even after Grandad died I still remember her holding my hand Taking me along for the ride She was born in 1918 Last year that the Red Sox won Back then when they sold the Babe Something that they never should've ever have done Hey Nanna can I have another Coke? Here comes the hot dog man Look at that, his bat just broke Gee, that's got to kill his hand Riding home on the Green Line Watching the town go by Nanna made another Red Sox fan 'Til the day I die That was back in '65 It doesn't seem like a long time ago Grandmama keeping hope alive Watched them win in '004 Oh my God, it was beyond belief Down three, needing four in a row Holding on by the skin of our teeth Like a hungry dog on a bone Angels of Fenway Give them peace They have been patient Red Sox Nation The whole world held its breath People got down on their knees Ready for the sudden death Praying to heaven for hell to freeze Nanna watched from her hospital bed She was there 'til the end of the race I couldn't hear the last words she said But she was lying there with a smile on her face Just a little smile on her face It doesn't feel like a long time ago...


DEL AMITRI "Del Amitri"
Good luck and lost love's knife cut a path leading through my life I weave through the gusts of change as a kite might through the sky. I feel down and degraded like I felt when you and me began to tire And we stopped long ago But I thought it was just ceasefire. I can leave the past behind like any normal man can do But what I find most of the time is that I have been left behind you. I can feel time pushing me forward so what does it matter what direction I'm pointed in? No one else used to sing my sad chorus Now I feel that they too have joined in. Bad luck and lucky breaks cut paths right through our lives We follow the blind man's bluff like lorrys follow white lines in the night. And by our nature we are kept alone No matter haw long your nails you can't cut out of the womb. And if I can't crash off-course You must be marooned and we will not be able to go back to the source of this wound.

Wide Eyed

Guiding her into dream time Following lights in her eyes This living behind's got her frightened So I'm here and I'm working all night How is she not breaking down? Oh God I feel her shaking Try as I might to provide her light In the end it's she who's breaking I'm holding the choice as she grows life from it's stem Is it better to say not now when I'm trying learn: yes? I'm dreaming of bouncing feet and your motherly smile But when you're sleeping so far away I can't feel what's inside How am I still holding on? Oh God I hope I am holding She'll try and describe what my strength provides but I fear my strength is failing If I could change my mind I would change What's the change for the better For a child who learns not to cry? And to the boy who relies on his anger: You'll survive but you won't feel exchange And why all these doubts? And what are all these doubts? I see in her eyes that I'm holding her fine but all I'm hearing is doubts Even as water's crushing over my head And the rhythm that I would slow is picking up it's pace I'm learning from older shames as I'm watching them die And I'm still hoping to see her smile in the morning when we wake Now that I am waking up Oh God I hope I am waking Though I'm overwhelmed at times I find that I'm less afraid of change Change all the time I'm still finding what's sure and not getting lost in my mind I know I can try Needing my own But still getting lost in her eyes And hoping it's time Wide eyed I get wide eyed


JUST JACK "The Outer Marker"
I'm moving your mental feet In complex dances and jigs I'll loosen up your consciousness Like a syrup of figs It's time to emerge from camouflage leaves and twigs Time to throw the fake noses and fright wigs Time to face the music No more metaphor Time to decide your fate Will you be cooked or go raw Will you be Rare and bloody with your soul exposed Or well done a charcoal surface with your insides froze and do you feel fear as you hear another door close or will you just turn away and flow where the wind blows and are you still satisfied with the pathways you chose or would you like to go back and rewrite the old prose [CHORUS] Do you count the flakes When it snows And can you feel the heat or only the afterglows Do you count the flakes When it snows Does your life sometimes feel like one big fake orgasm A gut reaction Instinctive spasm in the chasm And do your problems metamorphose into rubiks cubes Keep twisting and turning Becoming more confused Do you sometimes feel like you've been used and abused Your not visibly black and blue But on the inside bruised And does your love life leave you feeling kinda bemused You've played all the games And you're no longer amused [CHORUS] Sometimes it feels like I'm looking through a pain of glass I can see your mouth move but can't hear the words [CHORUS]

Every Time I Hear Your Name

KEITH ANDERSON "Three Chord Country And American Rock & Roll"
Fin'lly got over that song of ours; stopped chasin' little red sports cars, To check the license plates an' I quit drivin' by your place. Back makin' the rounds at our old haunts... Honky Tonks, restaurants. An' seein' some of our old friends... it feels good to dance again. An' I can fin'lly smell your perfume an' not look around the room for you. An' I can walk right by your picture in a frame an' not feel a thing. But when I hear your name, I feel rain fallin' right out of the blue sky. An' it's the fifth of May, an' I'm right there starin' in your eyes. An' nothin's changed, an' we're still same. An' I get lost in the innocence of a first kiss, An' I'm hangin' on to every word rollin' off of your lips... An' that's all it takes, an' I'm in that place, Every time I hear your name. Got someone special in my life... everyone thinks she'd make a great wife. Dad says he thinks she's the one... reminds him of Mom when she was young, But it's way too soon to be talkin 'bout rings; don't wanna rush into anything. She's getting over someone too, kinda like me an' you. An' she talks about him every once in a while, an' I just nod my head an' smile, 'Cause I know exactly what she's goin' through... yeah, I've been there too. An' when the conversation turns to you, I get caught in a "you were the only one for me", Kinda thought, an' your face is all that I see. I know I can't go back when I still go back. An' there we are, parked down by the riverside, An' I'm in your arms about to make love for the first time, An' that's all it takes, an' I'm in that place, Every time I hear your name. So I'm thinkin' 'bout the words I left unsaid. (Every time I hear your name.) Stop tryin' the change the things I can't change. (Every time I hear your name.) In my heart I know you're gone, but in my head, I feel rain fallin' right out of the blue sky. An' it's the fifth of May, an' I'm right there starin' in your eyes. That's all it takes, an' I'm in that place. An' there we are, parked down by the riverside, An' I'm in your arms about to make love for the first time. An' I can't explain, but I'm in that place, Every time I hear your name. Every time I hear your name. (Every time I hear your name.) Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. (Every time I hear your name.) Ah ah. Every time I hear your name.

Lend A Hand

You are god's most beautiful creation From the moment i set my eyes upon you I knew i wanted to be near To feel your arms wrap around me And to share myself with you Would be nothing but ecstasy Knowing you will make me whole again Then she said No I cried out to help you My friend who does nothing I watched you high i watched you low Never falling to far I am glad to have been here To help you get through her I know i didn't fulfill, but i helped somehow I'll take your pain Create with me Chim was a way for you to breathe I hope it was enough To help you through this war called love Take our hand Before you leave One more time, reaching our dreams We feel incomplete I know one day You'll solve that mystery And make them feel The way you did me Lend a hand, AE To you my friend
