JOHN DENVER lyrics - Calypso

Postcard From Paris

Original and similar lyrics
(Webb) Dear friend of mine, the weather's fine. Today I saw some ruins of the Roman world's decline. And I climbed all those Spanish steps, you've heard of them, no doubt. But Rome has lost its glory, I don't know what it's about. I wish you were here (when the shadows fall and all the rushing traffic stills). I wish you were here (And the bells are ringing on the seven hills). I make my way to a small caf©, I wonder what you did today. Wish you were here, dear one at home, I just flew in from Rome. And Paris is a postcard, all decked out in color chrome. And so I climbed the Eiffel Tower and prayed at Notre Dame, but I just can't find the romance and I wonder why I came. I wish you were here (On the Champs Elysees, lovers walking hand in hand). I wish you were here (They take one look at me and seem to understand). This city of light is a lovely sight, the first bright star I see tonight. Wish you were here, now I write this from the plane, drinking cheap champagne. Wondering why two people got so far apart. I wish you were here (Here in London where the rain is pouring down). I wish you were here (On this airplane headed back to New York town). I'll never leave you alone again, I'm coming home, but until then, Wish you were here, wish you were here, wish you were here.

There's Got To Be A Way

MARIAH CAREY "Mariah Carey"
A broken man without a home Desperate and so alone A victim of society No one really wants to see Some of us don't even wonder Some of us don't even care Couldn't we just help each other Isn't there enough to share [Chorus:] There's got to be a way To connect this world today Come together to relieve the pain There's got to be a way To unite this human race And together we'll bring on a change In another land they still believe Color grants supremacy I don't understand How there can be Regulated bigotry Some of us don't even wonder Some of us don't even care Couldn't we accept each other Can't we make ourselves aware [Chorus] And maybe then the future will be a time Without war, destitution, and sorrow And hungry children won't have to die If we work together today We'll save tomorrow Some of us don't even wonder Some of us don't even care Couldn't we just love each other Isn't there enough to share [Chorus]

Picture

KID ROCK "Cocky"
(feat. Sheryl Crow) [Kid Rock] Livin' my life in a slow hell Different girl every night at the hotel I aint seen the sun shine in 3 damn days Been fuelin' up on cocaine and whisky Wish I had a good girl to miss me Lord I wonder if I'll ever change my ways I put your picture away Sat down and cried the day I can't look at you, I'm lyin' next to her I put your picture away, sat down and cried today I can't look at you I'm lyin' next to her [Sheryl Crow] I called you lastnight in the hotel Everyone knows but they wont tell But their half hearted smiles tell me Somethin' just ain't right I been waitin' on you for a long time Fuelin' up on heartaches and cheap wine I ain't heard from you in 3 damn nights I put your picture away I wonder where you been I can't look at you while I'm lyin' next to him I put your picture away I wonder where you been I can't look at you while I'm lyin' next to him I saw ya yesterday with an old friend [Kid Rock] It was the same ole same 'how have you been' [Both] Since you been gone my worlds been dark & grey [Kid Rock] You reminded me of brighter days [Sheryl Crow] I hoped you were comin' home to stay I was head of the church [Kid Rock] I was off to drink you away [Both] I thought about you for a long time Can't seem to get you off my mind I can't understand why we're living life this way I found your picture today I swear I'll change my ways I just called to say I want you to come back home I found your picture today I swear I'llc hange my ways I just called to say I want you to come back home I just called to say, I love you come back home

Gopher Guts

AESOP ROCK "Skelethon"
Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts; Poolside; 0 for 1 and don't forget spoons twice Lukewarm folgers; mold on his moonpie Rooms in his home that dissipate into fruit flies Suicide lane wide load ride looting in the wake of an amicable marooning My duty go from moving in packs to sharing food with a cat. [To Moms:] "it's me, I accidentally sawed a woman in half." She said "I'll keep you in my prayers, " I said "I need to hide a body, " she said "ok honey, talk to you on Friday." Apparently we share a common plasma so the growing disconnection doesn't matter. according to the blood-and-water chapter. weird Who wrote the blood-and-water chapter anyway? probably some surly dad; only child, 30 cats. Looking for a way to reconnect with an averted past. Except it doesn't always work like that Today I pulled three baby snakes out of moss and dirt; where the wild strawberry vines toss and turn; I told them "you will grow to be something inventive and electric; you are healthy, you are special, you are present." then I let them go Oh You were sitting at the gate awaiting spirits and provisions I was privy to a headache over pirouetting innards In the mirror sweating pictures; who's there: simian or lizard? As it were there is a disappearing difference In ambition and material; Antiquated gentleman outlaws reduced to a ferris wheel of vitriol Move as a godless heathen; black gums, tooth gone, bootleg 'Yukon Cornelius' I'm a... that's better, here we here we go. disenchanted face printed on a zero-dollar bill Got a little plot of land where authority isn't recognized, contraband keeping the core of his Hyde Jekyll-ized Check! nevermind a misanthrope vying for affection to the wretched sound of mysticism dying It is something he must handle on his own; the wind blown way, wanna win? don't play Today I pulled three green frogs out of leaf and bark where the grape vines climb a convenient barn; I told them "you will grow to be something tenacious and exalted; you are mighty, you are gracious, you are lauded." then I let them go Oh I have been completely unable to maintain any semblance of relationship on any level I have been a bastard to the people who have actively attempted to deliver me from peril I have been acutely undeserving of the ear that listen up and lip that kissed me on the temple I have been accustomed to a stubborn disposition that admits it wish it's history disassembled I have been a hypocrite in sermonizing tolerance while skimming for a ministry to pretzel I have been unfairly resentful of those I wish that acted different when the bidding was essential I have been a terrible communicator prone to isolation over sympathy for devils I have been my own worst enemy since the very genesis of rebels Today I pulled three ghost crabs out of rock and sand, where the low tide showcased a promised land. I told them "you will grow to be something dynamic and impressive; you are patient you are gallant you are festive." Then I let them go Oh (On and on and on and on...)

Have You Seen Her

Guerra Juan Luis
One month ago today I was happy as a lark But now I go for walks to the movies - maybe to the park I have a seat on the same old bench To watch the children play (huh) You know, tomorrow is their future But to me, just another day They all gather 'round me, they seem to know my name We laugh, tell a few jokes, but it still doesn't ease my pain I know I can't hide from a memory, 'though day after day I've tried I keep sayin' she'll be back, but today again I've lied Oh, I see her face everywhere I go On the street, and even at the picture show Have you seen her? Tell me, have you seen her? Oh, I hear her voice as the cold winds blow In the sweet music on my radio Have you seen her? Tell me, have you seen her? Why, oh, why Did she have to leave and go away Oh-oh-oh, I've been use to havin' someone to lean on And I'm lost, baby, I'm lost (oh) Have you seen her? Tell me, have you seen her? Have you seen her? Tell me, have you seen her? Oh, she left her kiss upon my lips But left that break within my heart Have you seen her? Tell me, have you seen her? Oh, I see her hand reaching out to me Only she can set me free Have you seen her? Tell me, have you seen her? Why, oh, why Did she have to leave and go away Oh-oh-oh, I've been use to havin' someone to lean on And I'm lost, baby, I'm lost (oh) Have you seen her? Tell me, have you seen her? As another day comes to an end I'm lookin' for a letter or somethin' Anything that she would send With all the people I know I'm still a lonely man You know, it's funny I thought I had her in the palm of my hand Have you seen her Tell me, have you seen her (tell me, have you seen her?)
