Jenny Dreamed Of Trains

Original and similar lyrics
(Gill/Clark) When Jenny was a little girl, she only dreamed of trains. She never play with dolls or lacy kinds of things. Jenny counted boxcars instead of counting sheep, she could go anywhere when she went to sleep. All she ever talked about was getting on the ride, she was living in another time, you could see it in her eyes. And every day after school she'd head down to the track, waiting for a train that was never coming back. Jenny dreamed of trains when the nighttime came. Nobody knew how she made it come true, Jenny dreamed of trains. The depot's been boarded up, the trains have turned to rust. There hasn't been a train through here since the mill went bust. No one believed her when she said she heard the train, they said she was just a little girl acting kind of strange. Jenny dreamed of trains when the nighttime came. Nobody knew how she made it come true, Jenny dreamed of trains. Jenny laid a penny on the track one day, in God we trust, she walked away. The very next morning all she could find was a little piece of copper squashed flatter than a dime. Jenny dreamed of trains when the nighttime came. Nobody knew how she made it come true, Jenny dreamed of trains. Jenny dreamed of trains when the nighttime came. Nobody knew how she made it come true, Jenny dreamed of trains.

Jenny

HARRY CHAPIN "Living Room Suite"
It was when I rode off in my daydreams Chasing that vision of light It was then I got caught in the jet stream And I dropped through a hole in the night And I knew it's not you that I run from I saw each of us living alone And I prayed that you still could be waiting That's when I started for home Oh my Jenny Oh my Jenny Oh my Jenny my love Oh my Jenny Oh my Jenny You are my rainbow above I have seen a great city in the darkness Dream lady dressed in cold concrete I've seen the City of Angles With the names of its dead in the street And for once I could see it all your way And for once I knew I was all wrong And I thought of you there in my door way And I knew I've been travelin' too long Oh my Jenny Oh my Jenny Oh my Jenny my love Oh my Jenny Oh my Jenny You are my rainbow above As I crossed to the heart of the country I was lost in a forest of signs And I laughed 'cause life gets so funny Here I was wasted from wastin' my time So now shine down your sun on my shadow Without you I don't mean a thing And I gather me one golden morning, babe 'Cause it's your song that I need to sing Oh my Jenny Oh my Jenny Oh my Jenny my love Oh my Jenny Oh my Jenny You are my rainbow above

Then They Do

TRACE ADKINS
In the early rush of morning, Trying to get the kids to school: One's hanging on my shirt-tail, Another's locked up in her room. And I'm yelling up the stairs: "Stop worrying 'bout your hair, you look fine." Then they're fightin' in the backseat, And I'm playing referee. Now someone's gotta go, The moment that we leave. And everybody's late, I swear that I can't wait till they grow up. Then they do, and that's how it is. It's just quiet in the mornin', Can't believe how much you miss, All they do and all they did. You want all the dreams they dreamed of to come true: Then they do. Now the youngest is starting college, She'll be leavin' in the Fall. And Brianna's latest boyfriend, Called to ask if we could talk. And I got the impression, That he's about to pop the question any day. I look over at their pictures, Sittin' in their frames. I see them as babies: I guess that'll never change. You pray all their lives, That someday they will find happiness. Then they do, and that's how it is. It's just quiet in the mornin', Can't believe how much you miss, All they do and all they did. You want all the dreams they dreamed of to come true: Then they do. No more Monday PTA's, No carpools, or soccer games. Your work is done. Now you've got time that's all your own. You've been waitin' for so long, For those days to come. Then they do, and that's how it is. It's just quiet in the mornin', Can't believe how much you miss, All they do and all they did. You want all the dreams they dreamed of to come true: Then they do. Ah, then they do.

Set Fire To The Rain

ADELE "21"
I let it fall, my heart, And as it fell you rose to claim it It was dark and I was over Until you kissed my lips and you saved me My hands, they're strong But my knees were far too weak, To stand in your arms Without falling to your feet But there's a side to you That I never knew, never knew. All the things you'd say They were never true, never true, And the games you play You would always win, always win. [Chorus:] But I set fire to the rain, Watched it pour as I touched your face, Well, it burned while I cried 'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name! When I lay with you I could stay there Close my eyes Feel you here forever You and me together Nothing gets better 'Cause there's a side to you That I never knew, never knew, All the things you'd say, They were never true, never true, And the games you'd play You would always win, always win. [Chorus:] But I set fire to the rain, Watched it pour as I touched your face, Well, it burned while I cried 'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name! I set fire to the rain And I threw us into the flames When it fell, something died 'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time! Sometimes I wake up by the door, That heart you caught must be waiting for you Even now when we're already over I can't help myself from looking for you. [Chorus:] I set fire to the rain, Watched it pour as I touched your face, Well, it burned while I cried 'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name I set fire to the rain, And I threw us into the flames When it fell, something died 'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time, ohhhh! Oh noooo Let it burn, oh Let it burn Let it burn

Love Story

JIN "The Rest Is History"
[Jin] This from the heart yeah this From the heart right here Yeah everybody has a story to tell Check this out though I knew this Chinese dude in junior high Part of my crew everybody knew this kid He was the talk of the school Intelligent and well-spoken respected by teachers All the other students kept they eyes on his sneakers What can I say you can tell If he's cool if you talk with him During fire drills girls would want to walk with him He could have any chick up in his view But there was only one girl he wanted to call boo See it's all true found himself stressed in a dead end The girl he was feelin' was obsessed with his best friend His best friend's a player that's the reason he's pissed Plus he treat her like she don't even exist He ain't tryin' to hate on his man But there was no help in it Wrote the girl a letter told her how He felt in it she was shocked at first For him revealing the truth until she Realized that she was feeling him too [Chorus - Aja Smith] Oh..I've been (I've been) thinking of you Oh..I've been (I've been) thinking of you Oh..I've been (I've been) thinking of you And you've been thinkin' of me ohh.. [Jin] Uhh..yeah so as you know as time goes by Things get a little more serious..phht Just listen uhh but strictly hip-hop Now they bump the slow jams all day Went from holding hands to making out In the hallway their relationship Seemed like a dream come true As time went by their friendship grew Staring at the stars trading secrets on the phone When her parents were at work she would sneak him In the home he told her he was a virgin the day that they Met so on his birthday he got a gift he'll never forget (heh) Females were jealous but they still callin' him cute First day in summer school they rocked the Matching Nautica suits happy in each other's arm Can it be they found true love livin' in a fantasy Then reality attacks his pops couldn't see past The fact his son was Asian but his girlfriend was black Imagine having to choose between the one you love For your 'fam' that's like cuttin' off your right or left hand (damn) [Chorus] Uh uh yea uh I know this sounds Like a true story it could've Happen to any one of us It's crazy though right check it Now if this sounds like a true story That's probably cause' it is and I know for a fact Cause' I'm that Chinese kid (hmm) looking Back now I know it's more then just a crush I'm saying the whole experience taught me so much Love can overcome anything that gets in its way That's the reason I still think of shorty still to this day We talk now and then she's doing her thing We both all grown up I think she's rockin' a ring I know she's proud of me and all I've accomplished She was there when I was nobody that's being honest Ain't no shame I'll admit it she was there when I cried So in return I'll wipe the tears from her eyes as far as my Pops he's a little bit more open-minded if his son is happy He's 100% behind it now this is a song I knew I had to do Because all the stuff I went through might've happened to you [Chorus] Uhh yeah everybody remembers they first love You only got one so you gotta remember (yea uhh) Just wanted you to know jin's still thinkin' about you I know you've been thinkin' about me too

Gemini

ALABAMA SHAKES "Sound & Color"
On a planet not so far away We were born together In the beginning there was just you and me Where we was washed up Upon this river Suckle on the honey of the Tennessee Where we would sleep In the soft sunshine I smile at you and you to me And in the dark I see the moon shine in your eyes We were strong and tall as weeds Never live forever, there No such thing I looked at you, and you looked into me And we saw in each other, everything We knew no fear as we grew the years That's the growing up, we've come to love On this planet not so far away We wouldn't stay together Rolling in a dream We'd drift apart, on down the stream Like honeysuckle tangled up in kudzu vine The snake that lay in the sun, so fine I saw the true you and you, true me And in your eyes I'd see the dark inside of you Woke from dreams Pulled up like weeds Never knew no better There was no such thing I reached for you like a child that clings Oh, how we saw in each other, everything Everything Everything
