JOHN DENVER lyrics - Country Roads Collection

Rocky Mountain Suite (Cold Nights In Canada)

Original and similar lyrics
Up in a meadow in Jasper, Alberta, two men and four ponies on a long lonesome ride. To see the high country and learn of her people, the ways that they lived there, the ways that they died. And one is a teacher and one a beginner just wanting to be there and wanting to know. And together they're trying to us a story that should have been listened to long, long ago. How the life in the mountains is living in danger from too many people, too many machines. And the time is upon us, today is forever, tomorrow is just one of yesterday's dreams. Cold nights in Canada and icy blue winds, the man and the mountains are brothers again. Clear waters are laughing, they sing to the skies. The Rockies are living, they never will die. Up in a meadow in Jasper, Alberta, two men and four ponies on a long lonesome ride

One Night In Las Vegas

CHELY WRIGHT "Never Love You Enough"
(Chely Wright/Brad Paisley) Flight 709 pulled up to the gate An hour and 45 minutes late And of course our connection was already in the air Spent a day of our vacation in Chicago O'Hare And like musical chairs at the baggage belt We were the last ones standin' there when nothin' came out Looking back now on our string of bad luck That just wasn't our day but you know what? That one night in Las Vegas Lyin' there with you Was well worth everything that you and I went through And so it goes, our life's been that way Puttin' out fires, takin' it day by day And look at this year, it's been our hardest one yet Just when we thought it had gotten bad as it could get You got transferred to Denver, I stayed behind Put the house on the market 'bout went outta my mind And your dad got sick, I've never seen you so scared We almost didn't make it through the year But that weekend in the mountains In a cabin all by ourselves Makin' that one memory made up for everything else Oooh me and my insecurities You and your stubborn pride If we've learned anything it's there's no winner when we fight So this mornin' in our kitchen After talkin' all night long We finally stopped tryin' to figure out Who's right and who is wrong And when you hold me like you're holdin' me And I kiss your tired face We know we took the long way here But wound up in a better place Baby one night in Las Vegas Or one weekend in the mountains Any moment we're together makes up for everything else

Set Me In Motion

BRUCE HORNSBY
Sit there with a blank expression Say you can't go on anymore It's not like me to come out and help you Mabye I've been down this road before Been living in the shadows Now you come out slow Now you're in the saddle Got to ride a long Now you're dream was shattered These days are through Maybe something mattered It's not just for you Some are gonna go for broke Some are gonna lay down I've been too long standing still All I know is whenever you need me You reach out and set me in motion Looking out on that long valley Telling me I've come so far You're the reason I finally got there You're the reason it's been so hard Been living in the shadows Now you hear the call Now you're in the saddle You got to ride or fall Now you push a little harder Like I showed you to There's a day you'll be calling And I'll look you to you Some are gonna go for broke Some will lay down I've been too long Standing still All I know is whenver you need me ( 2nd rep-I'll pick you up whenever you stumble) You just reach out and set me in motion (repeat x2)

Shout

MICHAEL JACKSON
SHOUT Michael Jackson Verse Ignorance of people purchasing diamonds and necklaces, And barely able to keep the payments up on their lessons, And enrolled in a class and don't know who the professor is, How low people go for the dough and make a mess of things, Kids are murdering other kids for the fun of it, Instead of using their mind or their fist, they put a gun in it Wanna be a part of a clique, don't know who's running it, Tragedy on top of tragedy you know it's killing me. So many people in agony, this shouldn't have to be, Too busy focusing on ourselves and not His Majesty, There has to be some type of change for this day and age, We gotta rearrange and flip the page, Living encaged like animals and cannibals, Eating each other alive just to survive the nine to five, Every single day is trouble while we struggle and strive Peace of mind's so hard to find. Chorus I wanna shout, throw my hands up and shout What's this madness all about All this makes me wanna shout You know it makes me wanna shout, Throw my hands up and shout What's this madness all about All this makes me wanna shout, c'mon now Verse 2 Problems, complications and accusations Dividing the nations and races of empty faces A war is taking place. No substitution for restitution, the only solution for peace Is increasing the height of your spirituality. Masses of minds are shrouded, clouded visions Deceptions and indecision, no faith or religion, how we're living. The clock is ticking, the end is coming, there'll be no warning, But we live to see the dawn. Bridge How can we preach, when all we make this world to be Is a living hell torturing our minds. We all must unite, to turn darkness to light, And the love in our hearts will shine. Verse 3 We're disconnected from love, we're disrespecting each other Whatever happened to protecting each other Poisoned your body and your soul for a minute of pleasure, But the damage that you've done is gonna last forever. Babies being born in the world already drug addicted and afflicted, Family values are contradicted. Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, the pressure is building and I've had enough. Chorus...

I Want More

Linda Eder "It's Time"
Day in and out what my life's all about Are the things that you find far to boring Washing and cooking and staying good-looking While you get to do the ignoring Will it ever be my turn to say where we're going? Will it ever be my life that we're planning for? I've been living this way far so long without growing I want more I need attention not mere condescension But you just don't get the distinction Pushing and shoving does not equal loving Which seems on the brink of extinction What became of the prince who was oh, so disarming? What became of the sweet man at my beck-and-call? Could it be that Prince Charming turned out not so charming After all After all I want magic carpets, I want true romance I want moonlight cruises to the South of France And I want kisses that go on for days I want more than this is in so many ways I want more ful-filling I want equal billing I want champagne chilling at the door So, in short, I'm saying if you want me I want more When did the me that I so long to be Lose her natural sense of direction When did the you that I'm turning into Get a trifle too tense for affection Can we ever get over this thing about winning? Can we ever recapture a moment that's past? If we simply begin with a brand new beginning Will it last? Will it last? I want Shakespeare sonnets, I want oohs and aahs I want long stem roses in a Gucci vase And I want kisses that go on for days I want more than this is in so many ways I want more relating I want less debating I want all that I've been waiting for So, in case you're listening, if you want me I want more I want to fly throught that storybook sky Where two people in love always travel I want to be like some deep mystery That you simply can't wait to unravel I want to soar ten feet off of the floor When you walk through the door Like I used to before... I want magic carpets, I want true romance I want moonlight cruises to the south of France And I want kisses that go on for days I want more than this is in so many ways I want more fulfilling I want equal billing I want champagne chilling at the door So, in short, I'm saying if you want me Give me more relating Give me less debating Give me all those things I'm waiting for So, in case you're listening, if you want me Really want me If you want me... I want more

Bent 4 U

ALANIS MORISSETTE "Feast On Scraps"
You're unsure and you're not ready so that must mean I want you You're unavailable and disinterested and to you I look for comfort A million times in a million ways I will try to change you A million months and a million days I'll try to somehow convince you I have waited for you and adjusted for you and I'm done I have deferred to you and enabled you and I'm done You're too young or you're too old or you're simply not inclined You're asleep or you're withholding be that my cue to crave you Several times in several ways I'll try to squeeze love from you Several hours and several ways I'll feast on scraps thrown from you I have bent for you and I've deprived for you and I'm done I have depressed for you and contorted for you and I'm done I have stifled for you and I've compromised for you and I'm done I have silenced for you and sacrificed for you and I'm done It. won't be long before I am reclaimed It won't take long and I'll be on path again It won't be easy for us to disengage I'm at the end of self deprivation stage You're afraid of every woman afraid of your inner workings You cringe at the thought of living under the same roof as me god and everything A million times and a million ways I've tried to alter to match you Several times every several days I've tried to uncrush on you
