JEWEL lyrics - Spirit

Down So Long

Original and similar lyrics
Sun sets' cross the ocean I'm a thousand miles from anywhere My pocketbook and my heart both just got stolen And the sun acts like she don't even care The wind blows cold when you reach the top It feels like someone's face is stuck to the bottom of my shore I got a plastic Jesus, a cordless telephone for every corner of my room Got everybody but you telling me what to do But I've been down so long Ooh, it can't be longer still I've been down so long that the end must be drawing near I look to everybody but me to answer my prayers 'Til I saw an angel in a bathroom who said she saw no one worth saving anywhere And a blind man on the corner said it's simple, like flipping a coin Don't mater what side it lands on if it's someone else's dime But I've been down so long Ooh, it can't be longer still We've been down so long That the end must be drawing near I take a trip, I catch a train, I catch a plane I got a ticket in my hand And then a man takes my money And like cattle we all stand But we've been down so long Ooh, it can't be longer still We've been down so long The end must be . . . I know the end must be. . . Oh, I know the end must be drawing near Oh the end. . . Oh the end. . . Oh the end. . .

We Can't Wait Any Longer

MICHAEL W. SMITH "Healing Rain"
A silent call comes from a distant land Crying for a helping hand, so How long will it go on? Ignorance and vanity Supercede humanity, so How long will it go on? I want to know how long will it go on? We can't wait any longer THey're crying out, doesn't it matter We can't wait any longer No, no Too long in the slumber Shake it up, wake it up now We can't wait any longer No, no Another child is laid to rest Another day of hopelessness, so How long will it go on? And every day we're on the fence brings Another fatat consequence, so How long will it go on? I want to know How long long will it go on? Yuko awezayo kusikia kilio chetu? (Cna somebody hear me crying out?) Twaomba msaaba wenu (Somebody help us) Aweko mwenye kutuokoa (Somebody save us) Aweko mwenye kutupa uhutru (somebody free us)

Bridge Of Destiny

ARCH ENEMY "Stigmata"
(M.Amott/C.Amott;M.Amott) Standing at the bridge of destiny So long since I tasted fear Lurking in the darkest holes Awaiting my minds weakest moment Old words from an old world Against the laws of nature They say the truth is overrated Wall of anger corrupts my thought Standing at the bridge of destiny Show me a sign On the verge of losing my sanity Free my soul My inner demons torture me Flapping their wings in my face Damn you! You twisted illusion I am no longer afraid See through their liquid souls Evil eyes that will hypnotize You can no longer hurt me I am my own worst enemy Lead - Christopher Unleash the trapped souls of the dead Spirits since long forgotten Guardians fo the lost faith Destined for glory? Watch them all turn into sand And the wind blow them away Wisdom pours into my soul ..endlessly...

Baba

ALANIS MORISSETTE "Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie"
i've seen them kneel with baited breath for the ritual i've watched this experience raise them to pseudo higher levels i've watched them leave their families in pursuit of your nirvana i've seen them coming to line up from switzerland to america how long will this take baba how long have we been sleeping do you see me hanging on to every word you say how soon will I be holy how much will this cost guru how much longer 'til you completely absolve me i've seen them give their drugs up in place of makeshift altars i've heard them chanting kali kali frantically i've heard them rotely repeat your teachings with elitism i've seen them boasting robes and foreign sandalwood beads i've seen them overlooking god in their own essence i've seen their upward glances in hopes of instant salvation i've seen their righteousness mixed without loving compassion i've watched you smile as the students bow to kiss your feet give me strength all knowing one how long 'til enlightenment how much longer 'til you completely absolve me

Louisiana Country Mile

David Kersh "Goodnight Sweetheart"
(Mark Alan Springer/Jerry Laseter) Your teacher might've told you it was five thousand something feet That ain't to far in a car or on a city street Let me tell you son, back where I come from You learn as a little child There ain't nothing any longer than a Louisiana country mile Amos Walker said he'd shoot me next time he caught me crossing his fence But I was too much in love to reallly think about it back then Walking that tree cross Thibidioux creek I can still see them gators smile But she was worth every step of that Louisiana country mile That path got shorter as I fell deeper I'd swim that old swamp if I had to to see her Those days are gone and she's a memory, But when that road looks long it hits me There's a treasure at the end of most of life's troubles and trials And there ain't nothing longer than a Louisiana country mile I've come a long way from that little house back in the woods And I know I don't get back there as much as I should But every now and then when the walls close in I can still smile I close my eyes and let my mind walk that Louisiana country mile That path got shorter as I fell deeper I'd swim that old swamp if I had to to see her Those days are gone and she's a memory, But when that road looks long it hits me There's a treasure at the end of most of life's troubles and trials And there ain't nothing longer than a Louisiana country mile Don't talk till you've walked that Louisiana country mile

It's Been A Long Long Day

JIM WHITE "Transnormal Skiperoo"
Oooh, it's been a long long one day longer than a country mile stronger than a hurricane oooh, it's been a long long day. This red barn in the field. Dusty winds blow round it. It stands in its place firm and tall. So safe inside am I that I can see one hundred prairie miles waving on endlessly. And papa snores again while mama lies awake silently wondering why that grey cat that she loved up and run away, ten years ago one dusty day just like today. Long one day there I lay under the big windy sky I prayed; dear Lord make the flickering hands of fate finally flip the page to the yellow sun of my coming age. Oooh, it's been a long, long long day.... longer than a country mile stronger than a hurricane. Oooh, its been a long long day.
