Tenderly Calling

Original and similar lyrics
This song appears on two albums, and was first released on the Different Directions album, and has also been released on The John Denver Collection - Sunshine On My Shoulder album. Home, come on home Ye who are weary come home Softly and tenderly calling Home, come on home Sometimes when I'm feeling lonesome And no one on earth seems to care I'm all by myself in the darkness With no one and nothing to share Just when it feels like it's hopeless And I'll never make it alone I hear the voices of angels Tenderly calling me home Home, come on home Ye who are weary come home Softly and tenderly calling Home, come on home I try to keep it together I never let on that I'm scared Still sometimes I fall to pieces Scattered and lost everywhere Just when it feels like there's no one To mend all my broken down dreams I hear a voice deep inside me Tenderly calling to me Home, come on home Ye who are weary come home Softly and tenderly calling Home, come on home So don't be afraid of the darkness And don't run away from the storm Stand up and face your reflection The feelings you try to ignore After the tempest is over You've let yourself come on through You'll hear a voice in the silence Tenderly calling to you Home, come on home Ye who are weary come home Softly and tenderly calling Home, come on home Words and Music by Jan Garrett

Penitentiary

ICE CUBE "War & Peace Vol. 1: The War Disc"
'Attention all nigga rows and nigga hoes We've decided to rob this motherfucker the legal way Nobs injecting ourselves to become property on the stock In the penal system. In the justice system' Penitentiary, I hear you calling me [x4] [Verse 1] As the world turns, it burns while it's spinning Coming to a fucked-up ending I can't wait till the day everything in the hood is straight And I can hit the purty gates Until then, the pen is unfair Slave ships in the middle of nowhere (ma) I lets my goddamn hair grow (ma) Bellin' in court, lookin' like a scarecrow On Capital Hill, they them passed a bill Coming at me with a fucked-up deal (nah) The judge gave me a 'L' But y'all can't tell I wait and cry in my cell Convicted negro, superhero Speaker at our house Takin' lyrics in my mouth Bitches in the south showin' ass (mm) Mix a lot, got hoes puttin titties on the glass We blast in the west for example And rap about this shit over funkadelic samples Yo' babies see me kill a fool on TV (Wilson!) And straight call me a G [Chorus] Penitentiary, I hear you calling me Penitentiary, I hear you calling me Thinkin' of illegal ways to get paid But it ain't shit, got to be legit [Bridge] South-central L.A. You can buy your game from the C.I.A., hey-hey And South-central L.A.

Calling Me Home

Kate Price "The Isle Of Dreaming"
In the shadow of the night I hear you calling out my name Never heard your voice before, yet it sounds the same As I had imagined it on a thousand nights before Never thought you'd come for me, lost forevermore But I can hear you calling, calling me home I can hear you calling, calling me home I can feel the pounding of his heart within my breast Ever beating, ever drumming, it never seems to rest It drives me on, leads me where my other senses fail Leads me down this road to you, lit with moonlight pale And I can hear you calling, calling me home I can hear you calling, calling me home As I approach the clearing, I recognize this place And you with the heavens, shining in your face A spirit strong and gentle, I ache to hold you in my arms I feel as I have fallen under some forgotten charm And I can hear you calling, calling me home I can hear you calling, calling me home Vapor in the midnight air, a vision there you stand A broadsword and an eagle feather in your hands I know not of me body quakes with passion or with fear But as I reach my arms to you, you disappear But I can hear you calling, calling me home I can hear you calling, calling me home Awake I sit bolt upright, I'm safe within my bed The power of your calling still echoes in my head Who or what you are, I guess I'll never really know But every time you come for me, I'll go I can hear you calling, calling me home

Metamorphosis

Elegy
Gradually he no longer hates the world, nor himself. Once the epitome of all that's evil, now is a guiding light. His reformation, to put right his wrong doings. Thus he is able, together with the strength from a kind heart, to search out the damaged souls from his wicked past. Not only to repay them in money, but also to give the reassurance and belief, that mankind has the ability to change for the good. Infantile dillusion, played the biggest part Anger caused confusion A childhood fear, of fear itself Mere mortals playing god It's time to stop, feel the yearning Mother Nature's calling you, a metamorphosis working Your body's aching all the time A shadow lurking Your saviour's waiting in the wings Night turns to day, only shame remains real Take their misery away, redeem Heal the pain they feel A chance to turn it all around, a time for sharing Bury your fears into the ground Met-a-morphosis Put your hatred aside, hear the calling Metamorphosis A transformation of kind forming, a season of good is dawning Put away those evil thoughts Open up your heart and breathe Met-a-morphosis Put your hatred aside, hear the calling Metamorphosis A transformation of kind, a season of good is dawning Hear the calling, have no fear! The cries of tomorrow, was all you could hear But the road you have chosen, has wiped away the tears Silence is golden - silence is real.

New Generation

SUEDE "Dog Man Star"
I wake up every day to see her back again Screaming my name through the astral plane And in this catalogue town she takes me down Down through the platinum spires Down through the telephone wires And we shake it around in the underground And like a new generation rise And like all the boys in all the cities I take the poison, take the pity But she and I, we soon discovered we'd take the pills to find each other Oh but when she is calling here in my head Can you hear her calling And what she has said? Oh but when she is calling here in my head It's like a new generation calling Can you hear it call? And I'm losing myself, losing myself to you I wake up every day, to find her back again Breeding disease on her hands and knees While the styles turn and the books still burn Yes it's there in the platinum spires It's there in the telephone wires And we spread it around to a techno sound But like a new generation rise Cos like all the boys in all the cities I take the poison, take the pity But she and I we soon discover We take the pills to find each other Oh but when she is calling here in my head Can you hear her calling? And what she has said? Oh but when she is calling here in my head It's like a new generation calling Can you hear her call? And I'm losing myself, losing myself to you

Anywhere But Here

KILLER MIKE "R.A.P. Music"
I gotta get out of here, this city’s gonna kill me Could be anywhere, anywhere but here I wonder how long before this shit gone take me under [Verse 1:] Moving through New York City in a black seven fifty Like Batman moving through Gotham Dodging pot holes as I gently move Through Harlem with my wheels on slalom Pain in my eyes as I'm passing the place Where they found Sean Bell and they shot him Forty one times, he committed no crime But I guess life ain't Times Square But in the city that's gritty where the bottom is shitty Where the mayor's a billionaire You learn Manhattan keep on making it And Brooklyn, keep on taking it Cause life just ain't that fair For the kids in the park, watching out for the Narcs Putting Sour Diesel in the air Tryin' to flip them a pack, stack up a couple racks And make it the hell outta here… (New York) [Hook:] Let the city peel away right from under you There are too many clouds in the sky I can hear them calling out to me I can hear them calling out [Bridge:] Let the city peel away There were too many ghosts in this town I can hear them calling out to me, out to me! [Verse 2:] I maneuver through the ATL in a black SL With the goddess of a black female This is black male Heaven with the ballers are professing But to me home feels like Hell Even though it's black cops from the mayors to the top Black blood still gets spilled They raided a house, no drugs were ever found But a black grandmother laid killed Like the dream of the King when the sniper took his life On the balcony of Lorraine Motel From now forthward, these young black boys Seem to self-sabatoge they selves Or maybe they're just smart, and they choose to go hard Cause they know the good guy will fail So you ask what happens to a dream deferred Langston, well it kills itself... (Atlanta) [Hook:] Let the city peel away right from under you There are too many clouds in the sky I can hear them calling out to me I can hear them calling out Anywhere but here
