JEWEL lyrics - Spirit

Deep Water

Original and similar lyrics
You find yourself falling down Your hopes in the sky But you 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 anybody 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 which 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 out health We have to demand more Not of each other But more from ourselves 'Cause when you're standing in deep water And you're bailing yourself out with a straw 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

The Water Is Wide

SARAH MCLACHLAN
from Lilith Fair: a Celebration of Women in Music The water is wide, I can't cross over and neither I have wings to fly give me a boat that can carry two and both shall row - my love and I Now love is gentle, and love is kind the sweetest flower when first it's new but love grows old, and waxes cold and fades away like morning dew There is a ship, she sails the sea she's loaded deep as deep can be but not as deep as the love I'm in I know not how I sink or swim The water is wide, I can't cross over and neither I have wings to fly give me a boat that can carry two and both shall row - my love and I and both shall row - my love and I

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

Deep Water

CHRIS REA "Water Sign"
All change on then merry go line Everybody looking for a sign Jumping up and down when the switch goes on Nobody knows where it's coming from I'm here watching, keeping well away Oh I'm gonna live it in my own way Singing no mister, not me I'm staying here with guys on free In deep water I see a captain on a distant shore He's got a dream, he wants to make it law He's got my number, he's got a plan He try to get you any way he can Wants to own everything he sees While I'm here, well he ain't with me Singing no mister, no way I got my own deep water Deep, deep water

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
