JOHN DENVER lyrics - Different Directions

Hold On To Me

Original and similar lyrics
This song appears on three albums, and was first released on Different Directions album, and has also been released on The John Denver Collection - Take Me Home Country Roads album. We were live on arrival Safe home at last No cannon fire dockside No flags half-mast We were sold out for siver And a string of black pearls On the loneliest island At the edge of the world Like destiny's children Souls lost at sea No room on the lifeboat You can hold on to me Now the voyage is over We're back on dry land In our eyes are the stories The rope and the brand Like destiny's children Souls lost at sea No room on the lifeboat You can hold on to me Words by Nick Smith, Music by Joe Camilleri

Thorns In My Flesh

ARCH ENEMY "Khaos Legions"
[Intro lead - Michael] Liar, liar Conceal the truth Severed tongue With a serpent's fire Beggar, pursuer Master of deceit With your own interest at heart When it all came to light Innocence was lost How do you sleep at night Lost trust turned to dust [Lead - Christopher] All for one, one for all Did not apply to you An intricate web of lies As the wheels kept on turning [Melody - Michael] No more thorns in my flesh No more chains hold me down I control my destiny [Lead - Michael] Liar, liar Conceal the truth Severed tongue With a serpent's fire Beggar, pursuer Master of deceit With your own interest at heart When it all came to light Innocence was lost How do you sleep at night Lost trust turned to dust [Melody - Michael] No more thorns in my flesh No more chains hold me down I control my destiny [Lead - Christopher] [Melody - Michael] No more thorns in my flesh No more chains hold me down I control my destiny [Outro lead - Michael]

Palm Trees Or Lost Souls

JOE BROOKS "The Boy & The Broken Machine"
City of stars that hide through the night Pity the dogs left out in the moonlight Talk about God and the weather is fine, just fine The taste of ambition is bitter and sweet It sings in a dream and then sleeps on a street It's there in the eyes of the people you meet all the time, all the time This is the place where all of the fallen and the forsaken never move on You've lost the race if you're feet fail you in the city of angels Wings don't grow on palm trees or lost souls The city of songs that burn holes in your heart Pity the ones that don't know where to start out They walk without hope as the ocean rolls by Lies on the tongues and the mouths of the men Who deny us the chance to live as we planned Freedom feels good if only freedom were mine, all mine This is the place where all of the fallen and the forsaken never move on You've lost the race if you're feet fail you in the city of angels Wings don't grow on palm trees or lost souls There's no in between here You either whisper or scream here And if you say you feel at home you know You're missing somewhere else This is the place where all of the fallen and the forsaken never move on You've lost the race if you're feet fail you in the city of angels Wings don't grow This is the place where all of the fallen and the forsaken never move on You've lost the race if you're feet fail you in the city of angels Wings don't grow on palm trees or lost souls On palm trees or lost souls On palm trees or lost souls

I Love You Like A Brother

ATMOSPHERE "SouthSiders"
[Verse 1:] She might cry herself to sleep tonight You might act like everything feels alright I might bite my lip, like the silent type You might make a fist, like you trying to fight Got ghosts that haunt that home And if you didn't want that known then don't put it on a throne You separate the foe from the friend by the showmanship And the bones that don't bend So now I'm studying your moves like You the only one that knew how to do right Present it with a sleeve of success Like we all benefit if you achieve and progress Maybe you're right maybe I'm just left but Unless you walk a flight in my steps but Unless you slept a night in my nest You shouldn't waste your breath to criticize my mess [Hook:] I love you like a brother Even though I'm not your brother We all got a few flaws But let's try not to get too lost in the applause I love you like a sister Even though you're not my sister We all got a few flaws But let's try not to get too lost [Verse 2:] Used to be rock, but now it's roll Looking at the clock and the remote control The circle contracts till you all alone I put that on the people you've outgrown And maybe it was all for show But it was so convincing that the ground got cold I guess anything's possible, under a spotlight we all got a note to hold It goes Don't throw no stones if you're living in a fish bowl Blow a kiss though Where the aim is based on which way the wind floats And pride is a bottle on a fence post I keep the shoes laced up In case the people I love come to shoot the place up I know we ain't cut from the same cloth But a lot of those fights were just to say we fought The mother turns, life is fragile The struggle burns from inside of the candle It doesn't matter how far you run from it, you're still gonna find it You come from it And even though we all equivalent We gotta, hold on to the differences We gotta, stand up for what we won't fall for Let's give a round of applause for All of all of y'all [Hook]

Same Space

AESOP ROCK "Appleseed"
Killaz reflect the destiny of the village So when 20 count regrets float down futility spillage See I'll pass the broken arrow this time for certain Yea but from here on out its hoof the mare the bare footed urchin Dig it in person Now exhibit true audacity and passively hack grease into ribbons Your excused from the roundtable admissions committee Activist legends turned hostage in fallen cities Dirty earthlings circling vision immaculate Spin me dizzy in a crosswalk My too far gone mastodon senses inspect relentless For fitted boogie systems and crook addictions Well sure my crown is formed of thorns Yea but my thorns are formed of sound And I have found sound will keep me warm When the mornings born with frozen ground Put a rope down pull me from where the buzzards cleared I mean from the bones you and your little badass mad max musketeers When the silhoettes of emaciated frames dance on a highwire Mistook for aspiring third world poster children But is inserted ghost with dealin Dead to administer links like chief then whats your forte Devil dragger in disguise seeking the match made in your eyes Friend it don't take the wise this minute triplicate pace unified I don't condone the blasphemy naturally its procreation From the floods, to the fires, to the droughts, to the cyclones Tidal waves, the twisters, tornadoes, and hell stones Whirlwinds, tropical storms, blizzards and monsoons All of which I witnessed prior to waking up inside my room Look at the crook as I panic episode tantrums Fuck hugging my cool The edginess readies the mock knock quick draw hence the duel The company of similars couldn't excite the motor But hermit crab Ace home alone-uh One barrel of idioms and charcoal stick, courage under desire Canopy draped beautiful messiah reluctant Stuck in the pluck in the haul buzzing the fuzzing televison mixer Book of saturated matches and a half-made bed Pick of the litter, litter of the pick Pack leader will huff cannibal fumes, mechanical zoom There's ample room Stowaways inside the cargo bed Said leech prior to firing up his barnacle magnet Instincts leashing himself to where the wind splitting ice storms And termite swarms are commonplace I'm a trace this silver lining winding round the profit chase I know there is good in you if one peels back the opulence But I also know its ratio the bad don't feed my confidence The nutrients will be intense circle The clues units of success being personal Then sucked basic diversion Rusty anchor budget for nothing Wedged between aesop rock and a scarred face of frustrated fuck yous Bound by concern I can't believe I'm still concerned I can't believe side children turn in their sleep over one-liners Well I yield to hear your burns Color me out of my skull draggin a wagon of creature features And all I ever wanted was to aggravate the sleepers Look self-crafted heroics murder worthless Crash test ideologies, catalog alien doctrines type disturbance Got em out, killing machines turn belly up Buckled, the troubles I've seen Coax twenty four sevens of wide eyes from day dreamers Clean or dirty serpents in turn wish preference for the latter Justified the germs burn cauterize the gashes after On my left, one finger for each burrough I can touch On my right, one finger for each time that I wake up midsummer night Who's cloaked in a pristine mantle of hellfire But A-capital glaciers out the east slide lateral Born for one task indeed To spoil the citizen kane emote self this ugly duckling seed Look I aint too attired of draggin the baggage over the seasaw seeds When the reapers turns mortals to caspers See the plain and stone conjurable can't mimmick the null Of a billion troops holding matchsticks to empty cannons Stand of a many moons when the sun hit the mountainside splendidly Bask in the last warmth that be known to man's tangents In the wink of an innocent starchild's eyelid drop he vanished Managed to carve initials in the granite wall the damned it all up I hung with cats that do the donts Cats that forage through the moats Hoping they open with soveriegnty and a cantine deemed with prodigies I love the wake, the watch, the walk, the work The well its almost six o'clock I've never seen so many tugboats miss the dock (watch)

Bridge Of Destiny

ARCH ENEMY "Stigmata"
(M.Amott/C.Amott;M.Amott) Standing at the bridge of destiny So long since I tasted fear Lurking in the darkest holes Awaiting my minds weakest moment Old words from an old world Against the laws of nature They say the truth is overrated Wall of anger corrupts my thought Standing at the bridge of destiny Show me a sign On the verge of losing my sanity Free my soul My inner demons torture me Flapping their wings in my face Damn you! You twisted illusion I am no longer afraid See through their liquid souls Evil eyes that will hypnotize You can no longer hurt me I am my own worst enemy Lead - Christopher Unleash the trapped souls of the dead Spirits since long forgotten Guardians fo the lost faith Destined for glory? Watch them all turn into sand And the wind blow them away Wisdom pours into my soul ..endlessly...
