JAMES WESLEY lyrics

Jackson Hole

Original and similar lyrics
It was plain to see she didn't know how to ski She said "We don't get much show in Tampa Bay" She said, "I got confused, ended up on the blues I was hopin' someone like you would come my way I said, "Let's sit here and enjoy the view Let you catch your breath for a minute or two" The air is thin in Jackson Hole When the sun goes down, it's bitter cold Unless you can charm somebody into keepin' you warm Find a hole in the wall with a cover band Baileys and beer, yeah you laugh and dance And you sing along to every song And fall like the snow in Jackson Hole Spent a couple of nights drownin' in her eyes Gettin' lost between those tan lines from the coast All the words we said, all the promises I was sure she'd never let me go But your heart can play tricks on your mind When you're makin' love at the timber line The air is thin in Jackson Hole When the sun goes down, it's bitter cold Unless you can charm somebody into keepin' you warm Find a hole in the wall with a cover band Baileys and beer, yeah you laugh and dance And you sing along to every song And fall like the snow in Jackson Hole She had to leave on Sunday, she almost missed her airplane We kissed goodbye, I said I'll call you first thing in the mornin' When I woke up on Monday, I dialed the number she gave That old man answered, said "Son, no one lives here by that name" The air is thin in Jackson Hole When the sun goes down, it's bitter cold Unless you can charm somebody into keepin' you warm Find a hole in the wall with a cover band Baileys and beer, yeah you laugh and dance And you sing along to every song That's how hearts get broke in Jackson Hole, in Jackson Hole

ASKING ALEXANDRIA "The Irony Of Your Perfection"
Paint your lips blue Murder artistry Heartbreak and romance The cold is what you need for events such as this It's better being numb if you're cracking at the heart Pick up the rhythm, the timing that you'll need Tonight's final serenade, it's time to take your leave Dance the routine And your romance is warm inside Your heartbeat's racing Heartbreak is cold when you Don't dance, dream, sing our song Come get some Everything stops Everything starts Give me your hand One on one Two on two Three on three Dance step four The cold is what you need for events such as this It's better being numb if you're breaking at the heart Pick up the rhythm, the timing that you'll need Tonight's final serenade, it's time to take your leave Dance the routine And your romance is warm inside Your heartbeat's racing Heartbreak is cold when you Don't dance dream sing our song Poetic whispers of romance Fill the dancing midnight air Dance Dance Blood stained glass, shattered hopes And dancing dreams in your head I can't seem to find my steps In this murder

Dance Band On The Titanic

HARRY CHAPIN "Dance Band on the Titanic"
Dance band on the Titanic Sing Nearer, my God, to Thee The iceberg's on the starboard bow Won't you dance with me Mama stood cryin' at the dockside Sayin' Please son, don't take this trip I said Mama, sweet Mama, don't you worry none Even God couldn't sink this ship Well, the whistle blew and they turned the screws It turned the water into foam Destination sweet salvation Goodbye home sweet home I'm in the dance band on the Titanic Sing Nearer, my God, to Thee The iceberg's on the starboard bow Won't you dance with me There was a trombone and a saxophone The bass and drums were cookin' up the bandstand And I was strummin' in the middle with this dude on the fiddle And we were three days out from land And now the foghorn's jammed and moanin' Hear it groanin' through the misty night I heard the lookout shout down There's icebergs around But still everything's all right Oh, the dance band on the Titanic Sing Nearer, my God, to Thee The iceberg's on the starboard bow Won't you dance with me They were burnin' all the flares for candles In the banquet they were throwin' in first class And we were blowin' waltzes in the barroom When the universe went CRASH! There's no way that this could happen I could hear the old captain curse He ordered lifeboats away, that's when I heard the chaplain say Women and children and chaplains first Well, they soon used up all of the lifeboats But there were a lot of us left on board I heard the drummer sayin' Boys, just keep playin' Now we're doin' this gig for the Lord I heard the dance band on the Titanic Sing Nearer, my God, to Thee The iceberg's on the starboard bow Won't you dance with me There's a wild-eyed boy in the radio shack He's the last remaining guest He was tappin' in a Morse code frenzy Tappin' Please God, S.O.S. Jesus Christ can walk on the water But a music man will drown They say that Nero fiddled while Rome burned up Well, I was strummin' as the ship go down I'm in the dance band on the Titanic Sing Nearer, my God, to Thee The iceberg's on the starboard bow Won't you dance with me Dance band on the Titanic Sing Nearer, my God, to Thee The iceberg's on the starboard bow Won't you dance with me Dance band on the Titanic Sing Nearer, my God, to Thee The iceberg's on the starboard bow Won't you dance with me

Be Here Now

OASIS "Be Here Now"
Wash your face in the morning sun Flash your pen at the song that I'm singing Touchdown bass living on the run Make no sweat at the hole that you're digging Wrap up cold when it's warm outside Your shit jokes remind me of Digsy's Be my magic carpet ride Fly me down to capital city in the sun Kicking up a storm from the day that I was born Sing a song for me one from 'Let It Be' Open up your eyes get a grip on yourself inside

You And Me Are Gone

JAMIE CULLUM "The Pursuit"
Every time I see what's written on your mind I turn away and drop my guard Your high horse will be the leader of the blind Tender love and truth aside I'm in possession of so many tones I loved it all my life Feel the rhythm in your very bones I never sleep at night. You and me are gone You and me are gone Winter's bitter song You and me are gone, gone away. Truthfully I've got the most upper hand I never seem to finish lovin' You train your eye and force yourself to make a stand When it dies a warmer stuffing Lose yourself and on the edge of reason Teenage ears so drown Even I don't know what I am feeling Lost you til I'm found. You and me are gone You and me are gone Winter's bitter song You and me are gone, gone away. Yeah... See the joyous pro's have left my tongue For other warmer things, Battle songs are written to be sung A million toxic lies. You and me are gone You and me are gone You and me are gone You and me are gone You and me are gone You and me are gone
