JOHN DENVER lyrics - Country Roads Collection

Wild Montana Skies

Original and similar lyrics
He was born in the Bitteroot Valley in the early morning rain. Wild geese over the water, heading north and home again. Bringing a warm wind from the south, bringing the first taste of the spring. His mother took him to her breast, and softly she did sing: Oh Montana, give this child a home. Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own. Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes, give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana Skies. His mother died that summer and he never learned to cry. He never knew his father and he never did ask why. He never knew the answers that would make an easy way, but he learned to know the wilderness and to be a man that way. His mother's brother took him in to his family and his home, gave him a hand that he could lean on and a strength to call his own. And he learned to be a farmer, and he learned to love the land, and he learned to read the seasons and he learned to make a stand. Oh Montana, give this child a home. Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own. Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes, give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana Skies. On the eve of his 2lst birthday, he set out on his own. He was 30 years and running when he found his way back home. Riding a storm across the mountains and an aching in his heart, said he came to turn the pages and to make a brand new start. Now he never told a story of the time that he was gone. Some say he was a lawyer, some say he was a John. There was something in the city that he said he couldn't breathe, there was something in the country that he said he couldn't leave. Now some say he was crazy, some are glad he's gone. Some of us will miss him and try to carry on, giving a voice to the forest, giving a voice to the dawn. Giving a voice to the wilderness and the land that he lived on. Oh Montana, give this child a home. Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own. Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes, give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana Skies. Oh Montana, give this child a home. Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own. Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes, give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana Skies.

Moonrise Kingdom

ANGEL HAZE "Back To The Woods"
I was born all alone, you the same babe I was born all alone all alone Naked, we were as we came, babe.. Naked we came, we would go on Oh no, I'm not running in vain, babe.. Oh no, I ain't running too far It's just some beasts from the wild Can't be tamed babe. You know, you know who we are They don't know nothing Nothing about us Nothing bout love or the fears that surround us But you row the boat that I'm in You know we both sink or swim Baby, we're drowning wilting like flowers Chasing the sun for the love that forgot us And you know I'm breaking again You know I'm caving again Baby, its a wild world for you. Moonrise Kingdom only made for two In these trees there's no escaping truth They think they're saving you They think they're saving you. YOU GOTTA RUN! Or they'll catch us and stop us from growing You gotta run! Hold my love in your heart and keep going Can't get they hands on it in the kingdom [x4] (Can't get nowhere near my heart) [x2] We were young smothered tight in the wolf's jaw So lost in love, we're running out We left home, we ran off to the woods aw The beasts, the beasts, they scarfed us down We prayed hard to a God that felt so far We call louder now to no response Started fires because it got so dark. Oh you said, we'd never smolder out They don't know nothing Nothing about us Nothing bout love or the fears that surround us But you row the boat that I'm in You know we both sink or swim Baby, we're drowning wilting like flowers Chasing the sun for the love that forgot us And you know I'm breaking again You know I'm caving again Baby, its a wild world for you. Moonrise Kingdom only made for two In these trees there's no escaping truth They think they're saving you. They think they're saving you YOU GOTTA RUN! Or they'll catch us and stop us from growing You gotta run! Hold my love in your heart and keep going You gotta run! Can't get they hands on it in the kingdom [x4] (Can't get nowhere near my heart) [x2] I HOPE YOU LEARN TO FALL IN LOVE AGAIN I HOPE YOU FIND A LOVE IN YOUR BEST FRIEND JUST KNOW MY HEART IS YOURS UNTIL ITS END I WANT YOU NOW FOREVER ILL REPENT BABY, IT'S A WILD WORLD FOR YOU.

Greensleeves

Kelly Family
Oh a family of bards A travelling went to distant lands A singing sweet With pipes and strings and an open Heart,just to wish their brothers The good life Chorus: Greensleeves was all our joy Greensleeves was our delight Greensleeves our heart of gold And who but our noble greensleeves In Dante´s land,oh there they Marble strong,to see this celtic Bloods sincerety,a look a smile Even a tiny gift and turned Their backs though curtesely Chorus: Then come to the citiy of a waltz They say: There they´ll love you Passionately . But in truth they Were given no time and even Scorned, for the city of music Is gone for gold Chorus: So they danced their way Though scared and pained To Shiller´s sweet haven And dearest folk and at Last they were watched with Wondering love,and that lifted This family´s saddened heart

Metropolis

JANELLE MONÁE
View a sky without any blue. Breakfast on incandescent, built to chew. Dream to find another world Where a cyborg can love and a cyber girl is still a queen. [Chorus] Where there's no law, Tying my heart from the start. Where there's no war, if my dreams run a little wild, But if there's no call from joy control Warning me against this disease in my heart. Freein' my soul. Population 10 zillion and six Where signs say, "Welcome to the Star Core Metropolis." Me, I live on the wired side of town, Reaching and searching for a space called paradise found. [Chorus] Where there's no law Tying my heart from the start. Where there's no war, if my dreams run a little wild, But if there's no call from joy control Warning me against this disease in my heart. Freein' my soul. And it's a common thought that wired folk can be sold and bought. That we have no feelings no memories or minds, That we're bionic strumpets only worth a dime. To some it's a surprise when I smile. And when I hold your hand, they say, "How can a wired thing understand? Love is too deep; it's too wide to feel when your soul is a button and your foot glows in heels." Program. Program. Reprogram. One nation, under a microchip. Neon slaves, electric savages, open your hearts. Open your eyes. Your chariot will arrive. Hey, Anthony Greendown from sector nine. (From sector nine) With beautiful eyes I've served you now about thirty-eight times. Thirty-eight times I've looked in those eyes. You see me laughing, the love when I hold your hand, I wanna take you, take you with me to another land. [Chorus] Where there's no law Tying my heart from the start. Where there's no war, if my dreams run a little wild, But if there's no call from joy control. No call. Please go with me. Oh come with me. I need you. Let's leave. Let's leave. Come. Come. Come.

Out To Get Me

KING LIL G "King Enemy"
[Hook - PJ The Gator:] Oh when I'm rolling in the streets What do I see? I see reflections in the mirror Plotting on me Seems everybody is out to get me Trust no one but me It's hard to separate my family From my enemies [Verse 1:] With all these haters Now it's hard for me to focus on The good life When I come from where the roaches crawl Frisco bens - tattoos And my head was bald Everybody killa Who wants it? Just bring it on I can't explain it My hood is like a family I felt pain in my heart Rest in peace shaggy Tears going down my face Me & my brother solo in the regal Loading up the k Surrounded by the biggest gang Much love to my ogs Folsom & pelican bay Kato we all miss you Straight rider Nobody could fuck with you Young dopey I love em like a brother That's my loyal soldier We gon' ride for one another I hope you get out soon I got plans Let the haters talk While we advance [Hook] [Verse 2:] This muthafucker is acting funny now He wants to betray me Reminds me of my ex bitches Acting all shady My ex-homeboy is mad Cause I rap and he raps And now he's frustrated Trying to get on the map How the fuck is it my fault? That no one is feeling you Trying to make up excuses On all my million views My homies don't notice you Bitches ain't in to you I bet you hope I say your name In one interview You cross your fingers But it won't happen Your father should of taught you Oh that's right You're a fucking bastard Have some respect for those who helped you Can't you see its obvious The streets have never felt you Cause you fake & you fucking plastic You think you rap sick Never had shit Never fucked a bad bitch Stop saying I'm your rival Admit it muthafucker I'm your idol [Hook]

Every Shade Of You

JIM BRICKMAN
Oh oh, oh oh Mmmm, mmmm, mmmm Oh oh, oh oh I'd paint you if I could But I don't draw so good But I'd sure like to try I'd start with tangerine Throw in yellow, blue, and green Move to fiery red You're in my head You're so hard to describe Every shade of you makes me love you more You're every color that I've never seen before Down to earth Wild at heart Just makes you who you are Every shade of you makes me love you more Oh oh, oh oh Makes me love you more Oh oh, oh oh Mmmmmmm When the bluest sky turns grey You're my raincoat in the rain And you bring round the sun Ohhhh-oooh I was strictly black and white Til you colored my life With your own designs outside the lines And that's what makes it fun Every shade of you makes me love you more You're every color that I've never seen before Down to earth Wild at heart Just makes you who you are Every shade of you makes me love you more Oh oh, oh oh Makes me love you more Oh oh, oh oh All this time I still keep finding New reasons to fall in love with you Fall in love, fall in love with you You're down to earth Wild at heart Just makes you who you are Every shade of you makes me love you more You're every color that I've never seen before Down to earth Wild at heart Just makes you who you are Every shade of you makes me love you more Oh oh, oh oh Makes me love you more Oh oh, oh oh Every shade of you
