JEWEL lyrics - Picking Up The Pieces

Carnivore

Original and similar lyrics
Your hopes in the sky But your heart like grape gum on the ground And you try to find yourself In the abstractions of religion And the cruelty of everyone else And you wake up to realize Your standard of living somehow got stuck on survive When you're standing in deep water And you're bailing yourself out with a straw And when you're drowning in deep water And you wake up making love to a wall Well it's these little times that help to remind It's nothing without love You wake up to realize your only friend Has never been yourself or anyone who cared in the end That's when suddenly everything fades or falls away 'Cause the chains which once held us are only the chains we've made When you're standing in deep water And you're bailing yourself out with a straw And when you're drowning in deep water And you wake up making love to a wall Well it's these little times that help to remind It's nothing without love, love, love It's nothing without love We've compromised our pride And sacrificed our health We have to demand more Mot of each other But more form ourselves 'Cause when you're standing in deep water And you're bailing yourself out with a straw And when you're drowning in deep water And you wake up making love to a wall Well it's these little times that help to remind It's nothing without love, love, love It's nothing without love It's nothing without love

Wake Up Everybody

JOHN LEGEND "Wake Up!"
Wake up everybody No more sleepin' in bed No more backward thinkin' Time for thinkin' ahead The world has changed So very much From what it used to be There is so much hatred War and poverty, whoa, oh Wake up, all the teachers Time to teach a new way Maybe then they'll listen To what'cha have to say 'Cause they're the ones who's coming up And the world is in their hands When you teach the children Teach 'em the very best you can The world won't get no better If we just let it be, na, na, na The world won't get no better We gotta change it, yeah Just you and me Wake up, all the doctors Make the old people well They're the ones who suffer And who catch all the hell But they don't have so very long Before the Judgment Day So wont'cha make them happy Before they pass away Wake up, all the builders Time to build a new land I know we can do it If we all lend a hand The only thing we have to do Is put it in our mind Surely things will work out They do it every time The world won't get no better If we just let it be, na, na, na The world won't get no better We gotta change it, yeah Just you and me It's the God hour, the morning I wake up Just for the breath of life I thank my maker My mom say I come from hustlers and shakers My mind builded on skyscrapers and acres He said take us back to where we belong I try to write a song as sweet as the Psalms Though I am the type to bear arms and wear my heart on my sleeve Even when I fell in God I believe We the days at Weave through the maze and the season so amazing Feed them and raise them Seasons are asian Earthquakes, wars and rumors I want us to get by but we more then consumers We more than shooters More than looters, Created in his image, So God live through us, And even in his generation living through computers On love, love, love can reboot us Wake up, everybody Wake up, everybody Need a little help, y'all Yes I do, need a little help Need a little help, y'all ay Wake up everybody Wake up everybody Wake up everybody

When Your Love Is Gone

JIMMY BARNES "Two Fires"
Well I thought nothing was wrong, nothing was right I turned to you, but you were no where in sight I left it too late, and maybe I hurt your pride I should have thought of you, now you've changed your mind And just like a well, your love has run dry Loneliness was falling from the sky I'm like a man with no heart, I just don't belong I can't help it when your love is gone Well I missed all the signs, never read between lines And all I can say to you is that my love was blind It's breaking my heart, knowing right from the start You tried to reach for me, now we had to part And just like a well, your love has run dry Loneliness was falling from the sky I'm like a man with no heart, I just don't belong I can't help it when your love is gone And it's all I can do to carry on I can't help it when your love is gone Well I'll tell you no lies, you've opened my eyes Made me feel like a man again You've walked out that door, and you left me alone I broke down and I cried, cause I don't think I can make it alone Ohh.... listen..... I would sail the deepest ocean Just to be by your side again And all I want, is for you to love me Just say you love me again, again, again, again I'm like a man with no heart, I just don't belong I can't help it when your love is gone And it's all I can do just to carry on I can't help it when your love is gone I'm like a man with no heart, I just don't belong I can't help it when your love is gone And it's all I can do just to carry on I can't help it when your love is gone I'm like a man with no heart, I just don't belong I can't help it when your love is gone And it's all I can do just to carry on I can't help it when your love is gone I can't help myself when your love is gone Your love is gone

This Ain't Tennessee And She Ain't You

TOM JONES "Don't Let Our Dreams Die Young"
It's a big estate With wrought iron gates And palm trees standin' tall Fancy mirrors and chandeliers Comfort wall to wall And the ocean air is so crisp and clear And they rave about our view But there ain't no mountain breeze And there ain't no hickory trees And this ain't tennessee And she ain't you There's a bedroom suite Where she comes to me And as her fingers touch my face I close my eyes and i fantasize Of another time and place What she feels is so warm and real And i know her love is true And she tries so hard to please Still i think sometimes she sees That this ain't tennessee And she ain't you It's not that it's not good enough And it's not that i'm not man enough There's just somethin' easy goin' that i love About you and tennessee So i made up my mind to learn my lines And try to play the part But part of me is in tennessee And deep down in my heart I miss my smoky mountain home And i miss your lovin' too And it's deep inside of me And it's always gonna be Cause this ain't tennessee And she ain't you

Green River

JOHN FOGERTY "The Long Road Home"
Well, take me back down where cool water flows, y'all. Let me remember things I love. Stoppin' at the log where catfish bite, Walkin' along the river road at night, Barefoot girls dancin' in the moonlight. I can hear the bullfrog callin' me, oh. Wonder if my rope's still hangin' to the tree. Love to kick my feet 'way down the shallow water, Shoo fly, dragonfly, get back t'mother. Pick up a flat rock; skip it across Green River. Well! Up at Cody's camp I spent my days, oh, With flat-car riders and cross-tie walkers. Old Cody, Junior took me over, Said, "You're gonna find the world is smold'rin', And if you get lost, come on home to Green River." Well! Come on home.

Higher Ground

JENNIFER RUSH "Wings Of Desire"
You've been my inspiration And I've loved you or so long And in my times of desperation I was weak and your love made me strong So in those times when you can't stop The rain from falling When you raise your voice And think, no one hears you calling When you need someone And you think you've looked everywhere You better think again 'Cause I'll be there I'll be standing on higher ground When the water's getting deep And there's no one else around I'll be standing on higher ground I'll be there for you I will care for you I swear to you I won't let you down Higher ground is the place I found Through the love you gave me When I was down (And) the highest part in every heart Is when you give to someone else Without thinking of yourself I'll be standing on higher ground When the water's getting deep And there's no one else around I'll be standing on higher ground I'll be there for you I will care for you I swear to you I won't let you down And in my times of desperation When I was weak your love made me strong So in those times when you can't stop The rain from falling When you raise your voice And think, no one hears you calling When you need someone And you think you've looked everywhere You better think again 'Cause I'll be there I'll be standing on higher ground When the water's getting deep And there's no one else around I'll be standing on higher ground I'll be there for you I will care for you I swear to you I won't let you down These hands were made to help you Just to touch you and to give All the love that you've been giving me And in my heart is where you live
