JANET JACKSON lyrics - Rhythm Nation 1814

Black Cat

Original and similar lyrics
All the lonely nights I spend alone Never around to love me You're always gone Cause you're hangin out Breakin' the rules Oh the man has come Looking for you You're a rebel now Don't give a damn Always carrying on With the gang I'm trying to tell you boy It's a mistake You won't realize Til it's too late Don't understand Why you insist On ways of living such a dangerous life Time after time you stay away And I just know that you're telling me lies Black cat Nine lives Short days Long nights Livin on the edge Not afraid to die Heart beat Real strong But not For long Better watch your step Or you're gonna die You're so together boy But just at a glance You'll do anything If given a chance Scheming, plannin lies To get what you need So full of promises That you never keep Don't you tell yourself That it's okay Sick and tired of All of your games And you want me to stay Better change Makes no sense to me Your crazy ways Black cat Nine lives Short days Long nights Livin on the edge Not afraid to die Heart beat Real strong But not For long Better watch your step Or you're gonna die

Seasons

UB40 "Geffery Morgan..."
[Chorus:] Like the seasons you change your mind It seems like loving you is a crime. I remember those days Oh, so long ago Like the first time I took you To a picture show Or the first time I kissed you Beneath the moonlit sky I put my hand on my heart I thought I'd die [Chorus] Yes, you were for me It was plain to see I knew in my heart You were the one for me Though people used to try To get us down As time goes on We're still around [Chorus] We had our share Of ups and downs We had our share Of nights on the town The days were short But the nights were long My love for you It grew so strong [Chorus] But as we grew old Your love turned cold Gone are the days Of glitter and gold I work so hard To keep you mine Now all I have is Nothing but time [Chorus]

Homeland

EUROPE "Prisoners In Paradise"
Remember that summer Down by the shoreline I still can hear those old forgotten songs And we made promises to last forever I just can't believe those days are gone There used to be a place that we could call our own We used to think tomorrow was a long , long time But sadness filled my heart When I knew the moment had come When I had to leave those days Behind I felt so free Where I wanted to be the days went so fast How I wish they could last So far from my homeland I'm lost in time my soul's still searchin' for that peace of mind Those sacred landscapes Come miles around And my heart's still beatin' for those country grounds Remember when our hearts Were filled with laughter it echoes in my trail of fallen tears But no matter where I am today or what the future might bring I will remember those Long gone years I can't let go I wanna know Does it have to end For the best of friends So far from my homeland I'm lost in time my soul's still searchin' for that peace of mind Those sacred landscapes Come miles around And my heart's still beatin' for those country grounds Lord I know that those days are gone Long, long, gone I felt so free Where I wanted to be The days went so fast How I wish they could last

Bent 4 U

ALANIS MORISSETTE "Feast On Scraps"
You're unsure and you're not ready so that must mean I want you You're unavailable and disinterested and to you I look for comfort A million times in a million ways I will try to change you A million months and a million days I'll try to somehow convince you I have waited for you and adjusted for you and I'm done I have deferred to you and enabled you and I'm done You're too young or you're too old or you're simply not inclined You're asleep or you're withholding be that my cue to crave you Several times in several ways I'll try to squeeze love from you Several hours and several ways I'll feast on scraps thrown from you I have bent for you and I've deprived for you and I'm done I have depressed for you and contorted for you and I'm done I have stifled for you and I've compromised for you and I'm done I have silenced for you and sacrificed for you and I'm done It. won't be long before I am reclaimed It won't take long and I'll be on path again It won't be easy for us to disengage I'm at the end of self deprivation stage You're afraid of every woman afraid of your inner workings You cringe at the thought of living under the same roof as me god and everything A million times and a million ways I've tried to alter to match you Several times every several days I've tried to uncrush on you

In This Diary

ATARIS "So Long, Astoria"
Here in this diary, I write you visions of my summer. It was the best I ever had. There were choruses and sing-alongs, And that unspoken feeling of knowing Right now is all that matters All the nights we stayed up talking and listening to 80's songs; quoting lines from all those movies that we love. It still brings a smile to my face. I guess when it comes down to it... Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up: These are the best days of our lives. The only thing that matters is just following your heart and eventually you'll finally get it right. Breaking into hotel swimming pools, and wreaking havoc on our world. Hanging out at truck stops just to pass the time. The black top's singing me to sleep. Lighting fireworks in parking lots, illuminate the blackest nights. Cherry cokes under this moonlight summer sky. 2015 Riverside, it's time to say, "goodbye." Get on the bus, it's time to go. Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up: These are the best days of our lives. The only thing that matters is just following your heart, and eventually you'll finally get it right.

Six Strings Away

WAYLON JENNINGS "Jewels"
In days gone by but not forgotten I plowed in the fields and I pulled in the cotton Things you'd never think I've done when you see me now I pick and sing and they think I'm a star But every time I look down at my old guitar I know I'm just six strings away from that same ol' plow. I drive a new Royce Rolls Buy them tailor made clothes How long will good times stay A poor boy ways And hard time days Just six strings away. [Instrumental] I met a girl 'bout a year ago In a little country town where I played a show And though I love her I still wonder just what she'd do If I laid that old guitar down How long would she hang around? Or is she just six strings away from someone new. Well, them six little strings Buy rings and good things But how long would she stay If she knew poor boy ways And and hard time days Just six strings away...
