JEWEL lyrics - Perfectly Clear

Rosey & Mick

Original and similar lyrics
Mick came home late last night He drank enough beer to take the edge off a knife And she opened the door, looking older than before He said, "Rosey, you're too good a girl" She let him in, he lifted up her dress Like an apology began to kiss her breast And he felt much relieved as the ceiling fan tapped out a broken melody And she said, "Do you remember when we were younger and angry words were said, Making up was always your favorite part Well, I ain't young no more And I'm sorry will not mend a broken heart." He came home threw his things on the floor She worked up the courage to say what she never had before But the words got lost inside He got that look in his eye as the sun went shining on And she said, "Do you remember when we were younger and angry words were said, Making up was always your favorite part Well, I ain't young no more And I'm sorry will not mend a broken heart." Well the judge knew well Mick was a violent man She got a few headlines, she got a slap on the hand And there ain't no villains and there ain't no heroes People on both sides of the tracks trying to add up a whole bunch of zeros And time marches on until it's all gone And she said, "Do you remember when we were younger and angry words were said, Making up was always your favorite part Well, I ain't young no more And I'm sorry will not mend a broken, a broken heart."

Highlands

BOB DYLAN "Time Out Of Mind"
Well, my heart's in the highlands, gentle and fair Honey suckle bloomin' in the wildwood air Bluebells blazin' where the Aberdeen waters flow Well, my heart's in the highlands, I'm gonna go there when I feel good enough to go. Windows were shakin' all night in my dreams Everything was exactly the way that it seems Woke up this mornin' and I looked at the same old page Same old rat race, life in the same old cage. I don't want nothin' from anyone, ain't that much to take Wouldn't know the difference between a real blonde and a fake Feel like a prisoner in a world of mystery I wish someone would come and push back the clock for me. Well, my heart's in the highlands, wherever I roam That's where I'll be when I get called home The wind it whispers to the buck-eyed trees of rhyme Well, my heart's in the highlands, I can only get there one step at a time. I'm listening to Neil Young, I gotta turn up the sound Someone's always yellin', 'Turn him down' Feel like I'm driftin', driftin' from scene to scene I'm wondering what in the devil could it all possibly mean. Insanity is smashin' up against my soul You could say I was on anything but a roll If I had a conscience, well I just might blow my top What would I do with it anyway, maybe take it to the pawn shop. My heart's in the highlands at the break of dawn By the beautiful lake of the black swan Big white clouds like chariots that swing down low Well, my heart's in the highlands, only place left to go. I'm in Boston town, in some restaurant I got no idea what I want Or maybe I do but, I'm just really not sure Waitress comes over, nobody in the place but me and her. Well, it must be a holiday, there's nobody around She studies me closely as I sit down She got a pretty face, with long white shiny legs I said, 'Tell me what I want,' she say, 'You probably want hard boiled eggs.' I say, 'That's right, bring me some.' She says, 'We ain't got any, you picked the wrong time to come.' Then she says, 'I know you're an artist, draw a picture of me.' I said, 'I would if I could but I don't do sketches from memory.' Well, she then, she says, 'I'm right here in front of you, or haven't you looked' I say, 'All right, I know but I don't have my drawing book.' She gives me a napkin, she say, 'You can do it on that.' I say, 'Yes I could but I don't know where my pencil is at.' She pulls one out from behind her ear She says, 'All right now go ahead, draw me, I'm stayin' right here.' I make a few lines and I show it for her to see Well, she takes her napkin and throws it back and says, 'That don't look a thing like me.' I said, 'Oh, kind Miss, it most certainly does.' She say, 'You must be jokin',' I say, 'I wish I was.' Then she says, 'You don't read women authors do ya' at least that's what I think I hear her say Well, I said, 'How would you know and what would it matter anyway' Well she says, 'You just don't seem like you do.' I said, 'You're way wrong.' She says 'Which ones have you read then' I say, 'I've read Erica Jong.' She goes away for a minute and I slide out, out of my chair I step outside back to the busy street but nobody is goin' anywhere. Well, my heart's in the highlands with the horses and hounds Way up in the border country far from the towns With the twang of the arrow and the snap of the bow My heart's in the highlands, I can't see any other way to go. Every day is the same thing, out the door Feel further away than ever before Some things in life it just gets too late to learn Well, I'm lost somewhere, I must have made a few bad turns. I see people in the park forgettin' their troubles and woes They're drinkin' and dancin', wearin' bright colored clothes All the young men, with the young women lookin' so good Well, I'd trade places with any of 'em in a minute, if I could. I'm crossing the street to get away from a mangy dog Talkin' to myself in a monologue I think what I need might be a full length leather coat Somebody just asked me if I've registered to vote. The sun is beginnin' to shine on me But it's not like the sun that used to be The party's over and there's less and less to say I got new eyes, everything looks far away. Well, my heart's in the highlands at the break of day Over the hills and far away There's a way to get there and I'll figure it out somehow Well, I'm already there in my mind, and that's good enough for now.

Los Angeles

PETER BRADLEY ADAMS "Leavetaking"
Oh Los Angeles we leave you now At the setting of your skies As we leave the comfort of your ground With your angels we will fly Well you carried us in broken dreams Like a mother does her sons We were scattered 'cross your dirty streets We were dying one by one And you held us in your city lights When our eyes had lost the stars And we made our peace with lonely nights And you healed our broken hearts Well they say the Big One's gonna come And you'll fall into the sea We will know that then your work is done And your angels will go free

Promise Broken

GARY ALLAN "Tough All Over"
I'm out here everyday breakin hearts along the way I cause tears to fall and some to lose it all This whole world would be Better off without me Well, I'm the saddest words you've spoken I'm a promise broken I'm the ballgame that you missed I'm the calls that don't come in I'm every poor excuse you use to cover up the truth I tell the people that you love That they don't matter quite enough There's no stopping me once I'm in motion I'm a promise broken Disappointment, disillusion Despair, confusion I've seen it all in their eyes Don't promise you will if you want Don't say you do if you don't It's alright to say you'll try Well, I get pushed aside when you move on with your life But I'll stand the test of time in your heart and in your mind You'll think about me now and then Wonder how your life might've been But I will leave you never knowin Well, I'm a promise broken I'm a promise broken

Angry

QUIET RIOT "Alive And Well"
Not a lover not a fighter Always out of my league Sometimes maybe Life ain't what it seems There's a man in the back say's I gotta keep still Someone at the front door Says just do what you will Do what you will ! My ears are ringing With voices unclear The sun is setting Is it love or is it fear I'm angry I'm an angry young man When love ain't enough Angry-I'm an angry young man when My heart's gettin tough I'm an angry young man Yes I am ! Running down the alley On a hot summer's day Fellin kinda dangerous-trouble One step away Well I'm walkin the walk And I'm talkin the talk But when it comes to lovin I'm alone in the dark Yes I am ! Runnin on empty under the gun The pressure's building The storm has just begun... Angry I'm an angry young man When love ain't enough Angry-I'm an angry young man when My heart's gettin tough Angry I'm an angry young man when I can't get enough I'm an angry young man When push comes to shove I'm an angry young man ! Give it to me ! I got emotional baggage That I drag around With all this dirty laundry I gotta get outa town Yes I do ! Say hello to my demons I count then as friends Ain't no denyin they'll be here til The end. Cause I'm angry... Angry, angry I feel hopeless Angry angry, I love my face.

High Weeds And Rust

DAVID LEE MURPHY "Out With A Bang"
(David Lee Murphy) There's a shutter hangin' from a window pane The paint's 'a crackin' from the sun and the rain I just quit carin' 'cause I'm all alone My woman left me in a broken home with High weeds and rust Up around my truck With a broken heart In an inch of dust Well I've seen it all Boom turn to bust And I'm bout to drown In high weeds and rust Well there's a tractor sittin' in an empty field I swore I wouldn't do nothin' 'til my heart had healed My friends say son get her off your mind But when the bank comes lookin' for me all they'll find is High weeds and rust Up around my truck With a broken heart In an inch of dust Well I've seen it all Boom turn to bust And I'm bout to drown In high weeds and rust Well black birds sittin' on the telephone line Watchin' me layin' around wastin' time Never thought I could sink so low I can't believe I just let it go to High weeds and rust Up around my truck With a broken heart In an inch of dust Well I've seen it all Boom turn to bust And I'm bout to drown
