JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS lyrics - Up Your Alley

Play That Song Again

Original and similar lyrics
(J. Jett/R. Byrd/F. Carillo) Twenty one and lost out on the street You won't take nobody's sympathy Back at home you reached for love But you was turned away Black and blue you cry most every night You tell your friends that everything's all right Hoping when you closed your eyes It all will go away (But with the music loud) (Your life gets better somehow) All right play that song again All night and never let it end You'll find something there for you All right it can get you through It's though there's someone trying to break you down There's a million takers in this town It's too hard when no one even wants to understand Guitar coming from a radio Always takes you where you wanna go Somehow all your troubles always seem to fade away (But with the music loud) (Your life gets better somehow) All right play that song again All night and never let it end You'll find something there for you All right it can get you through Guitar coming from a radio Always takes you where you wanna go (But with the music loud) (Your life gets better somehow) All right play that song again All night and never let it end You'll find something there for you All right it can get you through All right all night All right all night

Stay Ready (What A Life)

JHENE AIKO "Sail Out"
[Jhene Aiko] We do not exist in Any other instant Here in this dimension You and I are meant to be I have waited lifetimes to find you Now that you're here I can remind you Of the things you've been dreamin' Times two I promise you If you just give me 24 Man, all I need is 24 hours I promise you'll want plenty more You'll probably be with it forever So how does it sound Us on the ground Giving you my love? There's no place quite like here There's no better time than now You gotta stay ready There's no place quite like here There's no better time than now That's why I stay ready [Kendrick Lamar] Tell me find your spot with the warning that I might slip And when you climb on top that's the ultimate road trip Ride on me like your Pac got me thinkin' it's '96 I can rap on some nineties shit, wrap your leggings around my hip I'm so hip to it tourists want to come speculate But if I stay monogamous promise this kiss will always taste like candy And yeah, it's obvious momma now probably can't stand me I'm sure they're tired of this look that you have when you're antsy We gon' fuck around (Mmm), we gon' fuck around And triple through triplets of babies right now And that might break the record and no, that don't mean you're fertile That means we're fucking reckless, plus we don't use protection I find myself reading old text messages when I'm bored We find ourselves sexting 'til that connection is restored I know that sounds immature, but if we never grow up Then I'm wishing good luck on the seats that's inside this Porsche Come to me Come, come to me Look at what you've done to me You put a gun to me Then you brought the sun to me Shine like blood diamonds Learning to have patience Only cause you are timeless The universe energy doesn't lie And this chemistry is infinity at a million times I wrote a million rhymes describing your star power And after 24 bars, you get 24 hours There's no place quite like here There's no better time than now You gotta stay ready There's no place quite like here There's no better time than now That's why I stay ready [2x] All that I know is right now Nothing's for sure but, right now Gotta get yours like, right now, like, right now I been through some shit man But I be on my shit man I decided that what you give is what you're given So I been tryna do it right I been doing like Whatever gets me through the night What a life I'm steady always on the go You steady always on the go We steady losing all control [3x] What a life They say The truth ain't pretty But coming from that pretty mouth The truth is fitting Cause you ain't never talking loud And you know plenty Yeah you know what I'm talking bout Cause you just get me Yeah you so pretty If everything is dipped in gold Then baby it will never grow Everything sweet ain't sugar coated [4x] What a lie What a life What a life that I've been given What a life What a life that I been living What a life What a life we die to live in What a life

Perfect Mistake

ANTHONY CALLEA "A New Chapter"
Do you run a red light sometimes Do you tell a white lie cos it's easy Do you keep what you find, like I do Do you forget what you got Do you never really wanna admit it When you know that you're wrong Cos I make perfect mistakes Day after night and night after day All my life I try to do better Show me the way [Chorus:] I see it right now, no turning back I found all the signs for the wrong direction I am at the crossroads again This time I know I'm not the same And maybe it's alright to make a perfect mistake Do you hurt the ones that you love Words that were said you didn't mean it Told too many lies like I did Have you walked from the scene of the crime Stole somebody's secret and blown it It'll come back and get me sometime Cos I make perfect mistakes Day after night and night after day All my life I try to do better Show me the way [Chorus] I don't wanna be falling down like an angel And the devil takes me when I'm weakest When I'm lost, confused, when I wanna change my name But this time I refuse to feel ashamed Cos I make perfect mistakes Day after night and night after day All my life I try to do better Show me the way [Chorus] And maybe it's alright to make a perfect mistake

Glumble

LESS THAN JAKE "Losers, Kings Things We Don't Understand"
Second street west of 39th Tries to sleep But he only winds up walking all night Tries to remember when his head was right... Sees his breath in the corner light He walks away from his life He tries to find... Third street east of 49th Can't sleep She always seems to cry all night Smokes another as the neighbors fight Can't seem to keep her head on right She wonders where's her life She tries to find... And when your thoughts are all you're finding Can't you feel your gears are grinding you into the ground.

Music Saved My Life

JOELL ORTIZ "House Slippers"
[Joell Ortiz:] Uhh, yeah Early on I knew I was a fan Hummed the ice cream truck beat holdin momma's hand Told 'em to turn it up in the dollar van Nobody moonwalked better in they pajama pants I used to try to tap like Gregory Hines "Lean On Me" word for word, I knew every line My moms blast that Anita Baker No wonder I can bake it with a piece of paper Yeah, lookin back, daddy left bad It was cool though, music was my step-dad I was raised by Stevie Wonder Lionel Richie, Luther and all the Jackson brothers Used to close my eyes and see far away On harder days I would chop it up with Marvin Gaye It was just a matter of time I took a crack at a rhyme and worked this magic of mine [Chorus: Mally Stakz (Joell Ortiz)] So when I felt like doin wrong, you helped me get it right And when I felt like givin up, you gave me one more try And when I felt like it was over, you didn't let me die No, you didn't let me die; music, you saved my life (So many different artists I get soul from) Yeah (Still I move to the beat of my own drum) Music, you saved my life (I'm an avenue and street away where Hov from) Ohhh (Rest in peace Biggie Smalls, baby baby!) Music, you saved my life [B.o.B:] Yo, uhh Rocked a wave cap and bumpin gangsta rap I grew up in an era where it was the thing to trap It was the world that I was always angry at A maniac full of rage with nowhere to aim it at We came up in the hood but everybody ain't adapt My parents did the best they could, I do my best to pay 'em back I'll pay 'em back first, let me take it back Wasn't no fashion, just airbrushed shirts and faded slacks If you could do a lil' better you'd rock a Coogi sweater All we knew was the hustle, we never knew no better "Get it crunk" was the phrase, everyone could relate We thought it'd last forever, who'd knew we'd be just a phase? They labeled me a delinquent Wasn't nothin that the teacher ever could teach me It's a miracle I ain't get caught in this street shit If it wasn't for hip-hop, I wouldn't be breathin Bands [Chorus] [Joell Ortiz:] Somebody pinch me, this can't be life All these big cameras and fancy lights Man, this must be a mistake (why?) Just yesterday my mother cuttin the cake On my 10th birthday she told me to make a wish Here I am now surrounded by all of this (all of this) Man, what a crazy life Music, you really saved my life You really saved my, life! [Chorus]
