JOHN DENVER lyrics - Aerie

She Won't Let Me Fly Away

Original and similar lyrics
(Danoff) Well, I wake up late in the afternoon. I eat my eggs with the evening news. And the sun's gone down before I find my shoes. Music fills the air, but it's all the blues. She won't let me fly away, she won't let me fly away. Well, we got no heat and the window's broke, The storm rains came, everything got soaked. And there's no bread left, nothing here to smoke, and the Lord looks down saying, 'Can't you take a joke?' She won't let me fly away, she won't let me fly away. The palm tree's just a picture on a postcard, the ocean's just a memory in my dream. And a man comes a TV selling soapsuds to dirty up my rivers and my streams. Like a mystery movie without an end. When you think it's over, it just begins. It's not always true that the good guy wins, I been down so long that I got the bends. She won't let me fly away, she won't let me fly away. She won't let me fly away, she won't let me fly away. She won't let me fly away, she won't let me fly away. She won't let me fly away, she won't let me fly away.

Tuzla

JOE JACKSON "Heaven & Hell"
Of all the treasure in our chest We love the golden god of war the best Look, look at that little clown Here, look through the binoculars Someone burned his schoolhouse down And he's blinking in the sun He's drying something in the sun Ha! It's an old tea bag! Now he rolls it up Look! He made a cigarette But he's not gonna smoke it yet Maybe he's gonna sell it How much d'you think he'll get? A slice of ham = a long goodbye = 3 days of peace A bar of soap = a can of oil = 10 years of debt A pinch of salt = a week of news = 4 double-A's A plastic bag = a place to hide = one sucker bet I got what you want You got what I need Of all the sterling men of steel We crave the one who'll teach us not to feel Look at the guy selling beer Where the hell did he get it from? He's the King of the Hill He's the bug that survives the bomb See the smirk on his greasy face Handing a bottle to the mortal foe It's not the time to kill Not that he forgets . . . As he takes a crumpled bill And thinks this is better yet A pot for the rain = a pair of shoes = 2 hand grenades A spade for the grave = four lovely eggs = 3 cigarettes A stick of gum = some wood for a fire = 2 table legs A cup of rice = a pint of blood = 1 pound of flesh Line up to buy here Line up to die there Look, look through that window Looks like your sister there In a Chetnik's bed Look, there on the table Looks like she did it for a loaf of bread Shit! She's got a knife! And he's snoring like a pig Is he worth more alive or dead? How much for his boots? How much for his head? Though all the days and all the times We count the coin and stash away the crimes

A Little Memory

JOSH THOMPSON "Turn It Up"
Morning sunlight don't hurt my eyes like it used to These days, trouble ain't what I'm getting into It feels good to be back on track Lookin' in the mirror don't hurt so bad I hate it that it took you packin' up your bags And leavin' me to make me see I still hear that goodbye and the front door closing And I still see that dust cloud from the Goodyears going Guess you left just enough of you behind to wake me up For good this time, You didn't have to stay to make me change, A little memory goes a long, long way I try long drives but you always seem to follow Hid behind neon lights, left me empty as a bottle And every night seemed to be more of the same And everything that ever drove you away But I'm a dollar short and a day late Of maybe ever getting you back one day I still hear that goodbye and the front door closing And I still see that dust cloud from the Goodyears going Guess you left just enough of you behind to wake me up For good this time, You didn't have to stay to make me change A little memory goes a long, long way I die in side every time I relive it I make my bed and now I'm lying here in it Yeah, I still hear that goodbye and the front door closing And I still see that dust cloud from the Goodyears going Guess you left just enough of you behind to wake me up For good this time, You didn't have to stay to make me change, A little memory goes a long, long way A long, long way A little memory goes a long, long way

Something To Believe In

Ian Hunter "Artful Dodger"
(Ian Hunter) (Well I lay underneath an ageless sky I watched the universe breathing There's more going on up there than meets the eye Give me something to believe in Which way's in and which way's out Every step is misleading Well which way is up which way is down You gotta have something to believe in Oh, let me dream, let me dream I spend my whole life dreaming I've been lucky but I'm still mean You gotta have something to believe in I didn't mean to hurt the people I hurt I was full of fear and loathing I wasn't up to much, but I was all I had to go on Couldn't find nothing to believe in I don't like all them man-made religions They all need a little spiritual healing They don't cut across race, they don't cut across culture But we all need something to believe in So you believe what you want to believe Just stay true to your feelings 'Cause one man's god's just as good as another now Gotta have something to believe in Well I lay underneath a royal throne The gaudy paint was peeling Half an inch deep and twice as cheap Oh give me something to believe in Fat Fred always packing lead On the corner dealing Makes more in a night than I can make in forty days Give me something to believe in Now people worship what they see Looks can be deceiving Violence rages in abandoned hearts 'Cause they ain't got nothing to believe in The chill chill is a bitter pill When it comes to leaving 'Cause there ain't no easy way outta here When you ain't got nothing to believe in Just woke up in Sarajevo city I watched all those mothers screaming Kids getting shot and for what, and for what? Give me something to believe in Now there's fire outside, mud that slides Earthquakes shake the region Willy and the Poorboys lost in America They ain't got nothing to believe in For every seed of knowledge found For every grain of reason For every shred of decency There's something to believe in Now I lay me down to rest In the silence of the evening And the moon road shines from here to eternity I've got something to believe in You believe what you want to believe Just stay true to your feelings 'Cause one man's god's just as good as another I've got something to believe in.
