Catch Another Butterfly

Original and similar lyrics
Do you remember days not so very long ago, when the world was run by people twice your size? And the days were full of laughter and the nights were full of stars, and when you grew tired you could close your eyes. Yes, the stars were there for wishing and the wind was there for kites, and the morning sun was there for rise and shine. And even if the sniffles kept you home from school in bed, you couldn't hardly stay there after nine And I wonder if the smell of morning's faded, what happened to the robin's song that sparkled in the sky? Where's all the water gone that tumbled down the stream? Will I ever catch another butterfly? Do you remember campouts right in your own backyard wondering how airplanes could fly? And the hours spent just playing with a funny rock you found with crystal specks as blue as all the sky. And I wonder if the smell of morning's faded, what happened to the robin's song that sparkled in the sky? Where's all the water gone that tumbled down the stream? Will I ever catch another butterfly? Now I watch my son, he's playing with his toys, he's happy, I give him all I can. But I can't help feeling just a little tingly inside when I hear him say he wants to be a man. And I wonder if the smell of morning's faded, what happened to the robin's song that sparkled in the sky? Where's all the water gone that tumbled down the stream? Will I ever catch another butterfly?

Stars In Still Water

JONSI
Put your clothes now out to dry It's early morning The day is unfolding, ever so softly I will always be, oh, aloud within It's a never ending song that I sing alone I am, awake, the only one awake I see the sun, break out, it slows, no clouds No crows, no one out, too - Only that you Don't stop in still water Don't stop in still water Now the sun's in your eyes It dries away your tears As you and I are the only ones To move in search of other feet I will always be, oh, aloud within It's a never ending song that I sing alone I am, awake, the only one awake I see the sun, glow fade, it's late, in shades Letting the past start, good - Only that you Dew stars in still water Don't stop in still water Don't you know that fires Eat all the lost sorrows in the morning

Nightingale

ROXY MUSIC "Siren"
(Ferry/Manzanera) Before the morning comes, will I hear your song Come little nightingale, I won't be here for long When you're up there flying, do you care If there's no one else around' When your lover leaves you in the air Do you waver, do you fall' Now while the moon is high Shall we, nightingale, Duet all through the night A pair of souls for sale Stars cluster glistening Captive till the dawn Patiently listening They've heard it all before Should I stay here or should I go' I couldn't bear to be alone Was it really love I saw' Oh, now I'll never know What is this I hear' I recognise that song Sweet little nightingale I knew you'd come along Soon when the morning comes. We will both be gone So sing pretty nightingale Lead, I'll follow on.

JIN "Say Something"
You know I gotta say something The beginning and the end What's the difference between the two? I mean I'm still tryna figure it out I know one thing I'm just getting started You know all that stuff that happened in the past... I ain't even thinking about that It's about right now And it's about moving forward Check, check Yo, dear God I wonder can You save me? The more it makes sense the more they claim that I'm crazy I had the beef for them to see me this calm Or reality, uh uh no TV sitcom My pure will got me stolen for Grace Eyes closed, salty tears all I could taste All on my knees, fall on my face They say put God first and everything else will fall in the place So I've heard, wise words got me thinking Gotta give it time to let it sink in I sound confused, I know For what shall a prophet a man to gain the whole world then lose his soul For the longest I was ridin' high cruise control In my own mind making up the ruses I go I swear it's not just my imagination I heard a voice guide in me, navigation Is it the route I chose or should I check the stair end Took a couple wrong turns, selective hearing Is it fact or just my premonition? I see what's going on now, high definition Nothing but lies I was living at Wasted like Lay 6 it took me time to get my vision back Learnt to recognize the fakes and the true snakes So call friends, you know the twoface All in my grill like a twofake Still you never find me under pressure like the last drop of tooth pace My mission has never been more clear The Truth has never been more near But I know I can't do it on my own So I pray You give me strength when I lift the microphone All I hear is "Jin, what happened to the old you? " See I could explain but I would rather show you Word, check it out y'all 'Cause actions speak louder than words So it don't matter how I mix, the nouns with the verbs New fans and glad God anointed my style Old fans wanna know "What will I rap about now? " Switch it up, yo I gots to do it The word is "Jin's spittin' out Gospel music" See I prefer the call it "change your life music" All in hopes that one day you might use it Whatever they choose they label it, so be it I proceeded, all I know is I so need it I'm certain that I can't rap forever Before the curtain call I gotta get my act together No surprise the room over my eyes has been lifted My entire perspective has been shifted I can't call it, you can call it how you feel Call it change, call it grow, as long as you call it real I am no quitter My journey's just begun, you are all welcome to follow, no Twitter I know plenty folks that wanna touch the gate to Heaven Never been to Church 'cause they can't relate the reference Ain't no sense in me, preaching to the quire Even with starch arms I'd be reaching to the fire I stand firm, the enemy don't face me No need to wonder, only God can save me

Anywhere With You

JOSEPH ARTHUR "And The Thieves Are Gone"
(Check) Belief is just a resident Of things you heard when the pain was clear You've been traveling in so far Only to find out your still nowhere near You're the creator of the gods And the whores of the Babylon Most just want your money But one or two will kill you for a song Singing to the drifter Singing to the banker and the maid Singing to the sling shots Singing to the diamond and theĀ ??? And the Thieves are gone And the thieves are gone And the thieves are gone I'm ready to go anywhere Anywhere with you And we sing this song over over With you my love Shouting at the fire engines Rolling down Jefferson at dawn Everyone corrupted And looking like there's nowhere to belong I see your eye's are spinning Swallowing the world the way it blooms The walls began to dance And your thoughts began appearing in balloons So when the strangers sugar coat servants at the seam As the beggars bleeding butchers betting back the bread the bank round you to bring And trucks with number flames roll undisturbed thru greenhill, so will I Your trying to nurse the sprit, but it's enough for most just to survive And their eye's are gone I'm ready to go anywhere Anywhere with you And we sing this song over over With you my love Someone needs an operator Someone else is broken on the road The one by loves it's self too much That never got around to explode Games and animators say We'll be forgiven and do time But there has always been an alligator Biting off the heads of those who shine Nothing here is real And nothing here holds any true weight Heading out of Troutville Bleeding hands reaching for the bank Pull me from the stream And I will fight like danger in the air And as you are driving by the accident Each review will start to stare I'm sending you a postcard I'm ready to go anywhere Anywhere with you As we sing this song over over With you my love I'm sending you a post card But I am nowhere And you are nowhere too Well I don't have a stamp So I'll just burn it if it's all the same to you It held no information Cause every word that's spoken is a lie For you were never born So there is no way you will ever die What's the use of feeling for someone That you made up in your mind You dream that you are lost And you imagine that there is a you to find But there just ain't nobody No savior, no heaven and no hell Just a load of broken junk You're looking for an idiot to sell Your life it doesn't work But you've resigned yourself to live it till the end The way you look so kind But no one seems to notice so you just pretend Then you get depressed I'm ready to go anywhere Any where with you As we sing this song over over With you my love Then you get depressed [?] So you find yourself a doctor and a pill To make the line more comfortable And make-believe your following your will

All Or Nothing

AGAINST ME! "Against Me!"
We can have a day from here, if you'll take your heart put some faith in ideals. The bank line will all turn around and rent will pay itself. You can sleep tonight, little boys in sweat-shops will again be children and tonight they'll eat the lions share. Bombing skies will sing silent and the anger turn to laughter. On the crucifix Christ will turn his head and admit his own sin he was a martyr for. Your shoulders just as heavy there is no mercy from three holes and a bleeding forehead helping my life. Rob the promise and direction given to me. We're bound to self righteous living. Fingers rapping on the counter, patience wearing thin. It's just another work week, arthritis at 18 for a minimum living. Who has time to breathe, catch it before it's over, catch it before it eats you. Hello perspective this is just the human condition. It's universal love my god I think it's spreading. They'll kick you when you're down. Push you down when you're stumbling. Another day of dying is just evolution. You said freedom was a hope away an hand or a hard push. Is this inclusive thinking? We run by a thread, tongue in cheek idealists. I'm not giving up the claim that I can save the world and all I need is my friends.
